Day 93 Thursday September 20
The final four gathered for breakfast, which they ate at the counter as usual rather than their new tiny table, before they moved on to prepping, primping, and packing for tonight's eviction. Tyler joked with JC that his HOH only lasted a little longer than Tyler's quickie during the double (but he had that two-week reign at the start, so it kind of evens out). All indications are that Kaycee will stick with her Coast 2 Coast deal with Tyler and evict Angela, but we'll find out soon enough.

Julie gave us two jury house segments with the latest evictees trotting in, and random edit snippets of the various jurors commenting on who arrived and who didn't. Sam told them about her Day 3 final two with Tyler and Brett told them about his as well. The final veto comp was Down to the Wires, maneuvering a ball on a crossbar up a vertical wall to drop in the correct pocket to answer season comp questions. JC was out first, then Tyler, then Angela, and Kaycee won after six rounds. Julie announced the $25k viewer favorite poll was open, to include all the cast rather than just jurors as some seasons have been.

Angela and Tyler each gave their first eviction night speeches, with love for each other and Kaycee and JC. Kaycee evicted Angela as planned, after an overlong and emotional speech, and both Kaycee and Tyler told her about their Day 2 finals deal in their farewells. Tyler also included his power app in his farewell, and said he didn't expect to fall in love but he had. Julie announced the two remaining shows would be as they have been in recent seasons (as described above in "Remaining Shows" section above), and she said Jeff would make an appearance on Sunday's. The final three popped their well-earned champagne as the credits rolled.

Feeds came back to the three of them chatting and reminiscing, with JC taking credit for most everything that happened all season. Tyler and Kaycee talked about the final comps, with Kaycee saying she's better at the physical ones, more or less asking him to give tonight's to her and then he'd go against JC for Part 2 - Tyler didn't commit to that. Feeds went down around 9.50pm for the endurance Part 1 comp and came back at 12.43am, and Tyler had won Part 1. It was a hanging comp with jetpack theme, which they said was very hard, and they had blue goo spattered on them. JC came off first and Kaycee right after him. Kaycee was extremely sore, especially her arms. She said she'd never felt that kind of numb soreness before, and she could barely do up her bun. JC gloated to Tyler some more, and Tyler had to argue a bit that he'd done some things to get them to this point.

Day 94 Friday September 21
Feeds went down for their guided memories brunch and Jeff visit around 9.15am and returned around 12.40pm. They cleared up the dishes and decor, and Tyler made an easy task of carrying the little serving table to the pantry, saying he used to be a waiter. They said they'd had a good meal (including mimosas) and a good time, and then they went to their beds to catch up from a strenuous late night, little sleep, and three champagne deliveries in 12 hours.

Orwell had a dedicated feed most of the day, and after their naps they talked about how bored they were with nothing to do. On the surface, feeds looked pretty much the same as always, just with fewer of them, but their sudden boredom showed how much gaming they were doing in their heads all the time, now that there wasn't much gaming left to do. Their chats and season rehashes took some comical turns as their stress wound down.

They got another post-comp relief basket from After Dark, with facial masks and mists, a foot roller and scalp massager, lotions and loofahs. They sat down to family dinner for three at their tiny table, and later had pre-bedtime tea time in the living room.

Day 95 Saturday September 22
Kaycee fed the fishies and then set up an elaborate Skittles study system to prep for Part 2. If JC did any studying, it wasn't aloud. Later he told Tyler he'd seen Kaycee's study board, and he kind of scoffed about it. Later Kaycee studied faces on the photo wall in case Part 2 was a face morph, since they hadn't done that yet this season.

As they waited and waited for Part 2, JC complained from his bed that Tyler and Kaycee were being too loud in the kitchen, so they got louder. Kaycee started to bang a spoon on a pot, JC kept hollering for them to "stop!" and Kaycee revved it up to full-blown pots 'n pans over JC's head, à la Dick on Dustin. A good time was had by all, except JC. Waiting carried on, as usual for a Saturday, but the stakes were a lot higher than most veto comps. There was an interesting subtext dynamic, as I think each of the three felt confident either of the other two would take them to the end.

Feeds finally went down for Part 2 around 6pm and returned a little after 9pm, and Kaycee had won Part 2. They had shirts that read I CLIMBED MOUNT EVICTUS AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS LOUSY T-SHIRT. All three were fairly subdued but when JC stepped away, Kaycee finally had a silent celebration with Tyler to celebrate her win. It sounded like a combo of rock wall climbing and season trivia, a typical Part 2 comp, but JC went to bed grumping about the unfairness of having two physical comps at this late stage of the game.

Day 96 Sunday September 23
They got tie-dye kits, and they moved some of the blue room bed cushions to the main room opposite the photo wall for a comfy seating area. Of course they continued to do season rehashes, but some of them became funnier and funnier. Whether these were your picks for final three or not, their easy friendship has made for some more-fun-than-usual final days of feeds.

They wrapped the tiny table in saran wrap and set about tie-dying shirts and bandanas, doing some of it with care and some without. They decided they'd establish Tie Dye Monday. After that project was finished, they retired to their "porch" area as I'm calling it, to rehash some more and wait for bedtime.

After Dark delivered giant inflatable bowling pins and a ball. They had some fun with that, but they all three dissolved in hysterics when JC was unable to blow a pin over. Then it was tea time, and JC and Kaycee convinced Tyler to shave his armpits before bed. It didn't go well.

Day 97 Monday September 24
Tie Dye Monday was kicked off by Tyler and Kaycee once again wearing matching uniforms. JC didn't wear his tie-dye at first but later donned his shirt and bandana, grumping all the way. He griped that his head was "not made for bandanas, it's too fucking round" so he put it over his hat.

They spent most of the day in their new porch area, rehashing and reminiscing, and marveling that their time there was almost done. JC asked Tyler to let him know if he changes his mind about taking him to the end so he wouldn't be blindsided on the finale. Tyler and Kaycee had earlier agreed they would do just that, but they hadn't yet. They got origami kits but they weren't interested. At bedtime, JC pestered Tyler and Kaycee in their beds like a little kid who wasn't ready for bed yet. It was equally annoying and hilarious.

Much later, Tyler got up and went to the lounge, talking aloud about how worried he was about his game and about Angela, and worried about losing both. He said he'd been so worried and preoccupied that he hadn't been able to think about his finals speech. He said he knew his buddies were yelling at him about having gotten into a showmance, adding "I really love that girl." He said he'd just had to talk it out, and he went back to bed a little bit later.

Day 98 Tuesday September 25
Kaycee tried out the origami over coffee, but it didn't hold her interest for long, or the guys' at all. They hung out at the porch area and it wasn't looking like they were going to get around to any of things they'd talked about doing on their final full day.

They did finally start checking things off their to-do list, including a last climb on the rock wall. And their luggage arrived so they started some packing. Back at the porch, they started a casual game of country and state capitals, and whoever was on the buttons for BB (or Bob, as JC christened the announcement voice) played along giving them hints as needed.

Finally their long-planned house memories tour began, with their favorite moments in each room. They laughed as JC pointed out his many "blind spots" to hide from the cameras, and we laughed as all of them (and his clothes-changing in them) were always in full view. They did the pink, blue, and Have-not rooms, kitchen, living room, lounge, pantry, stairs, and some key gametalks and celebrations were mentioned along with memories of funny and bizarre incidents. Kaycee was relatively quiet as JC and Tyler relived the season again, and many openings were made for Tyler and Kaycee to drop their bomb on JC, but they didn't. They ended on the skybridge with a game of foosball by the fishies.


As they began winding down for the last sleep in the habitat, BB played the peanut signal three times in a row, and they did the song and dance each time, followed by a rendition of JC and Kaycee doing The Real Tyler song. They gave feedsters a few farewells, unaware they'd be doing it again in the morning.

HOH 3 - Veto 2 - Noms 2 - HN 1
8th juror/12th evicted 1-0 Day 93
She was in the 'Who?' category for weeks, and many referred to her as The Furniture because she was so barely there. Then she turned on her bestie Rachel and followed that up with an HOH reign that booted Bayleigh. Either or both of those events would normally bring fireworks, especially as Angela's game moves often seemed highly personal, but while she didn't pull any punches with her speeches, she didn't follow up with face-to-face confrontations. She also won a late HOH and two vetos, giving her an excellent comp record. She fell for Tyler and vice versa, but fortunately for our ears, they weren't too smacky or slurpy. (They didn't seem very passionate either, but that's their business.) She wasn't a big conversationalist, often retelling her gymnastics and pole-vaulting background, her keen sense of smell, and the need to do her taxes, and she also said some things she shouldn't have. She was often horizontal, with or without Tyler, and she was highly photogenic, not surprisingly since she's a professional model. She was allied well, earned her way to Final Four, and she gave some harsh farewell messages, but entertaining feeds, not so much.

Won: $5,000 5th place bonus; 2 weeks Robot; Power App #1 Bonus Life
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 4 - HN 3
7th juror/11th evicted 2-0 Day 91
One of the most unique hamsters ever, she got a lot of criticism for 'not playing the game' and a lot of speculation as to whether she was crazy like a fox or just plain crazy. A recruit who didn't do much homework, she didn't know what she was getting into and she let Tyler lull her into staying largely uninvolved in the game. She trusted him implicitly until he voted her out, but she'd said that would be okay if it would help him get the win. She was a great robot (and we got to share Sambot's point of view), and while she didn't use that to her best social advantage, she did BB-marry JC while she was still on wheels. She was often first up in the morning and last to bed at night, and she kept herself busy by making bird feeders, wind chimes, and more with found materials and bits of decor. She transformed Tyler, Kaycee, Brett with hair makeovers, and she won the first power app (but didn't use it) plus a brutal wall endurance comp, and by the end she went a little ways around the bend. She was a mostly fun hamster and I'm glad she was on our feeds.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; 24 hours InstaGranny
HOH 0 - Veto 1 - Noms 4 - HN 2
6th juror/12th evicted 3-0 Day 86
He and Winston were inseparable bros at first, sometimes offensive, often comical and often obnoxious, but he survived Winstonbro's early eviction and went far, mostly due to being in the strong Level 6 alliance. He was a good spy for them, first setting up to be a perceived outcast and then as a double agent, and he did well infiltrating the other side. But he didn't pull his weight comps-wise and when he started trying to work Tyler against Kaycee and Angela, they decreed he had to go. He gave three unexpected and extremely memorable nominee speeches but when he was the double eviction blindside renom and evictee, he went quietly. Along the way he gave us ANALLICE, broke the front door with a prank gone wrong, started an oven fire, and created an alter ego named River Dan when he found Angela's stunt hair. He dominated the grill for its one-night-only appearance (disappointing BBQ Smackdown fans), and he provided far more than his share of comedy lines and overall fun feeds.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; Crap App #3 Read It; Hacker #1
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 4 - HN 2
5th juror/11th evicted 4-0 Day 86
She was a charter member of the doomed FOUTTE alliance and later the Hive, and she was close to figuring things out with both Rockstar and Bayleigh, but she inexplicably seemed to forget what was going on each week and started over from scratch, leading to repeated blindsides. But she survived the longest of her teamies and did well considering the opposition she was up against. She read Hamlet with a peculiar accent, and she featured in several crush triangles, getting cozy with Brett, Scottie, and Fessy. She settled on Fessy even though they had a rocky start, magnified by a sippy game of Would You Rather that he didn't like. Their relationship continued being rocky, alternating makeouts with bickering, and she bashed him after he left but that may have been for game purposes, as she'd continuously denied being showmancy with him. Her comp performance was inconsistent, sometimes great and sometimes awful, and she wasn't able to win when she had to. She featured in several tally items, and her house meeting to confess being the first Hacker set off the biggest fireworks of the season.

Won: $5,000; 1st eviction immunity; Greece trip; Hacked off the block 6th week; 1 week revival
HOH 1 - Veto 1 - Noms 4 - HN 4
3rd juror/8th evicted 6-0 Day 65 - Revived Day 72 - 4th juror/10th evicted 5-0 Day 79
He came in a fan but partnered up with only Steve and was on his own Day 15. Then he cast a hinky vote and was blamed for all the stray votes going forward. But he lasted quite awhile despite all that, and he played something of a 'floater' game (floating side to side) which contributed to his first eviction. He fell for Haleigh and while he didn't do or say anything out of order with her, that was the other (bigger?) reason Fessy put him up - never mind that Level 6/5/4 had engineered it that way. But it was fun to watch Scottie fall head-over-heels, and touching when he finally admitted he had feelings for her that he didn't know how to process. His revival week didn't go any better and he went right out again (with a Hilton Head bang), but disastrous game aside, he was often a star for Team Fun Feeds, contributing more than his share of Lines of the Day and constantly doing unexpected and very random things. Last but very far from least, he broke up the Brett/Winston bromance on his HOH.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; Crap App #1 Hamazon
HOH 1 - Veto 2 - Noms 1 - HN 3
3rd juror/9th evicted 4-1 Day 72
He provided a lot of comedy, but most of it was unintentional. He was vocal about hoping this would open doors for followers, advertising offers, and other shows, and it might. But he was unable to figure out how this show worked, even after being blindsided week after week. He got stuck on the Week 2 Brett vs Winston vote and held onto that all season, and even when Haleigh told him there were two sides playing, he promptly forgot and fell right into the same traps, as did she. He put up his ally Scottie on his HOH and said it was the 'biggest move in BB history' but oops, not so much. He liked Angela at first, then Kaitlyn and Haleigh, but he finally gave his rose to Haleigh. She balked a little at first but they finally kissed and from there it was alternating bickering and slurpydurp when they were together. Fessy slept a lot, ate a lot, broke the HOH sink, and made a lot of messes that ticked off some of his roomies, but he won some comps and doesn't seem like a bad guy overall, just a little clueless in some areas.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; 1 week Food and Fitness program
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 3 - HN 1
2nd juror/7th evicted 5-1 Day 58
She filled the requisite 'weirdo' casting slot but as with many hamster weirdos before her, she was pretty 'normal' despite her alternative appearance. She had issues early on with Angela and Brett in particular, and she held on to those issues so tightly they got in the way of her logic. She got continually hung up on her theories of what was going on but unfortunately for her, those theories were mostly wrong. She and Haleigh did see Tyler as a game threat fairly early, but they weren't able to do much about it until Haleigh's HOH week, but they didn't plan around enough Hacker scenarios and Rockstar went out on her one-time bestie's HOH. Her first nomination was messy but she handled her second well, partly due to Jessie's Food & Fitness program which she also handled pretty well. She griped a lot, with odd and ever-changing accents, and while she handled most things well at first, she was a good sport about them eventually, even Brett's horrible speech accusation 'on [the eve of] her daughter's birthday.'

Won: Power App #3 Identity Theft (unused)
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 1
1st juror/6th evicted 6-1 Day 51
She was very watchable and gifable, with the best facial expressions no matter what, including multiple shockfaces. She was isolated with Swaggy the first couple weeks even though he was busy running around, but rather than becoming a gloomy showmance widow, she came out swinging when he left and embedded herself well all around - a little too well, as that moved her quickly up the target ranks to the tippy top. She said some controversial things and may have had the first in-house pregnancy? That hasn't been officially confirmed. She won a power that went unused, partly because she blabbed she had it, and that was the real reason she went out when she did. She did a slow simmer when she went on the block as blindside renom, but Hurricane Bayleigh made landfall two days later, as a Category 5, in a spectacular outburst of anger and frustration that culminated in 'spewing blood' after she bit herself. The kicker? Her anger at Tyler was mostly due to an inaccurate retell. The 29th consecutive North American hamster to enter the habitat first and not win their season.

Won: 1st eviction immunity; Crap App #2 Yell!
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 1
5th evicted 5-4 Day 44
Her blindside stung more than some because much of it was due to a pack of lies plus betrayal by her BB bestie Angela but hey, welcome to Big Brother. And she did buy some of it herself by losing her mind on the block, and that was after she agreed to go on it. She had nip slips and towel flashes almost daily, for those interested. She said she's a performer almost daily too, sometimes multiple times a day, and she did come alive when she was acting out skits, dancing, or singing ('please stop singing') but the rest of the time she seemed guarded and I don't feel we got to know who she really is at all. Her rough 'n tumble friendship with JC was fun, especially when they'd break serious convos for their quick-and-done J's Party dance. Her pal Jackie didn't fill her in enough about the rotten meat and rancid potatoes of this game, but she held her own pretty well until she didn't. Her birthday was memorable, thanks to Kaitlyn using the occasion to yell at Brett.

Won: Bonus Life 'chance' (failed)
HOH 1 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 1
4th evicted 9-1 Day 37
It's safe to say we knew more of her backstory than any hamster ever, since she seemed to bring it into every convo. She talked a very lot, and she squeaked, whimpered, babytalked, croaked, and cried a lot too, plus she canoodled with three guys (Tyler, Brett, Fessy). She caused a lot of chaos which is good, but she was often exhausting about it. New age interests are fine, some clairvoyance is trippy and fun, but her 'intuition' was nearly always wrong. It's probably just as well she failed the Bonus Life puzzle since she'd gotten to the point of getting 'hits' from shampoo labels. It was Tyler's doing, but she still gets the credit in the books for backdooring Swaggy and breaking up a showmance in the second week: something most seasons haven't been able to manage til the end, if at all.

Won: Nothing
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 2 - HN 1
3rd evicted 6-5 Day 30
He too came in saying all the right things: he wasn't here to get a girlfriend or Twitter followers, and I had him pegged as either a dark horse who'd go far, or a too-hard-too-soon kind of guy. Turned out he was the latter, probably because he just discovered BB last summer and binged several seasons since without realizing there's a lot more to it than the show edits let on. He spent most of his time playing Jenga and broing around with Brett, and the two of them provided a lot of unintentional comedy in the form of buffoonery. He made manic facial expressions while going on angry whisper rants, he threatened speech call-outs but didn't follow through, and for all his jock/winner self-hype, he failed every comp.

Won: 1st eviction immunity
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 0
2nd evicted 8-4 Day 23
Pre-season he said all the right things (albeit in his own unique, third person way), but he started off way too strong and way too Swaggy for his own good. He gave us great shockface when Steve was evicted but it didn't sink in that he wasn't fully plugged in, so he gave us another when he went up as backdoor renom. To his credit, he campaigned his brains out to stay rather than lay down to die, but it didn't help. His pre-show QAs said he was wary of showmancing but he fell for Bayleigh anyway, and together they were one of the cuter 'mances to watch - it helped that they didn't slurpydurp too much. Swaggy C was a good character for TV, but Chris was a good hamster and will be missed.

Won: Nothing
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 0
1st evicted 7-6 Day 16
The Summer of Steve™ ran just a couple weeks and his job lie(s) didn't help him any. He might have been better off if he'd been open about his undercover past and teaching present as both would have let him share more stories, or if he'd gotten in with Kaitlyn and Rockstar via his wife's new age interests and books. He and Scottie buddied up but otherwise he was odd dad out. He didn't keep up so believed he was safe, and he didn't really campaign to stay. It might not have helped if he had because all the scurrying was elsewhere, but it wouldn't have hurt. He didn't get his required nightly baths but he learned to clean his ears, and early risers in particular will miss him.

Air shows on CBS (Global in Canada) are Sundays 8pm, Wednesdays 9pm, eviction Thursdays 9pm.

Big Brother After Dark on Pop TV is every night midnight to 3am, except Thursdays 1am to 3am. The aired blocks are live (or recorded earlier the same night, depending on your cable provider).

The CBS app (by CBS Interactive) plays BB air shows and other CBS shows, as well as feeds, or you can use your browser to watch feeds on mobile devices. The same All Access link used to subscribe will lead to the feeds viewing page if you're already signed up.
