Day 4 - Saturday - August 8, 2020

Meetings revved up early, including a lengthy Memphis/Kaysar convo, which Memphis reported to Cody, so his loyalty is more with the guys than with Kaysar/Janelle, as of now. Kaysar followed up with Cody, who repeated what he'd told Ian last night, that he and Nicole F weren't close in their season or since (nevermind they were very close on BB16 - there was even a #Nicody hashtag). Kaysar followed up with Nicole F, chit-chatting and fishing for info/clues. Cody had said he wanted to keep noms the same and asked David if he'd do that, should Cody pull a Houseguest Choice chip and let David play his first veto comp. During that convo, Cody referred to him as Kevin. Cody had previously asked Christmas the same thing, and she'd agreed, and later he also told Daniele.

Kevin talked to Da'Vonne about his Poland syndrome and his anxiety about that last time, particularly the swimsuit shoot, and that he was much more self-confident about it now, and he showed her his chest. David told Daniele he was nervous during the move-in comp because the only comps he played last year led to his evictions. And he said he told himself last year not to stress over the controversial things going on as they weren't much different than the real world, but he's optimistic about society changes currently underway. And David asked Cody how the veto works. I'm still unclear how much all this BB ignorance from David is fake, but a lot of it is definitely an act, and one he's overplaying somewhat.

They drew veto players later than usual, around 2.30pm. Players will be Cody, Keesha, Kevin plus Enzo (Kevin's Houseguest Choice), Ian, Tyler, and Da'Vonne will host. Ian hadn't been feeling well today due to stomach/slop issues but he was excited to play. Enzo told Bayleigh, with Cody present, that he and Cody would like to work with her and Da'Vonne. Bayleigh agreed, and they said they might bring in some more people "but not too many." Janelle asked Keesha if Cody had given her "the talk" telling her she was a pawn. Keesha seemed surprised and said no. David and Da'Vonne had a long, good chat about last year's problems, Camp Comeback, BLM, and thoughts about this season. He confirmed to her he is indeed playing BB-dumb.

Feeds were down for veto comp approx 7.30pm til 10pm. Enzo won, and he quipped the medallion should be platinum, since it's All-stars. He'll almost certainly not use it, since Cody wants noms to stay the same and Enzo and Cody are cozy. Players were wearing BB Peeloton shirts with peeled banana logos, and it sounded like an updated previous comp. It was timed, with racing back and forth, grabbing and stacking things including bananas, mushrooms, grapes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, pineapple - but they weren't messy. They said it was fun but difficult to play, and fun to watch, and they were all happy to have gotten some fresh air. Kevin and Ian (possible renom) both appeared more nervous than usual afterwards. Janelle told Kaysar to slow down and stop gaming so hard, and he agreed. Dani and Nicole F griped about Janelle not wearing her star suit all the time. They got backgammon, which made Ian happy, along with dominos, checkers, Jenga, and Connect 4.

Day 5 - Sunday - August 9, 2020

Kaysar and Memphis had a lengthy talk about the COVID-19 situation, particularly the impact of shutdowns on small businesses and restaurants, and the inconsistent mandates in different areas. Earlier, Kaysar and Ian had a lengthy chat about Ian's social experiences and learnings last time, autism, games, personality types, and various adult conversational topics, including Kaysar peptalking Ian for being considerate yesterday when he wasn't feeling well himself. Noms will likely stay the same, so campaigning and waffling about the vote has begun. Nicole A told Kevin he has her vote, but not to worry if he hears otherwise (she'd told Keesha she'd think about being her seventh if she gets six others), and Kaysar and Janelle talked with Keesha about ways they might be able to keep her.

The yard remained closed - why? I was figuring closed through the HOH/safety/veto comp cycle due to extra virus protocols and precautions, but I figured it would be open the rest of the week. They snacked, did yoga, played some of the games that were delivered last night, and gametalked in many, many pairs and small groups. Those convos included Nicole F and Da'Vonne rehashing some of their prior problems and they seemed to agree to put those behind them; Dani and Janelle agreed it was odd most were saying they weren't gametalking with anyone (both know some are); Christmas and Tyler discussed the nominees and their other roomies; Dani and Memphis also ran the roster together; Enzo told Nicole F he likes Dani and would like to work with her, and that he's "a big Evel Dick fan"; Tyler and David said they could each infiltrate different groups and report back to each other; Tyler and Da'Vonne had a check-in as well, as did Tyler and Kaysar; and Kevin counted potential votes with Da'Vonne.

Nicole F told Tyler about the pre-season rumors swirling about her, that she'd called production crying and demanding to be on the show, and that production would rig things for her to win, and some were encouraging people to spam her Instagram so she wouldn't get on the show and/or to make her lose her sponsors. Tyler said he hadn't heard about any of that (likely not true), and Nicole said "one person's in here that started the rumor, and one's outside." When Tyler asked who, and said she could trust him, she whispered "Janelle" and added Evel Dick was the one out here. She also said Janelle doesn't know she knows (also likely not true). So the whole pre-season rumor that Nicole masterminded the season casting and the rest is now officially part of the game, and suggests open warfare between Nicole F and Janelle could be on the horizon. Nicole did say none of it was true. It should be noted that earlier Cody let slip that Derrick was "100%" going to be on the season at one point.


The backyard was finally opened at 8pm and they all ran out happily, glad to have the fresh air and space after being locked inside since they moved in. Ian had a happy and much-needed reunion with his hammock, and Enzo had a happy reunion with the pool table. Recall the Brigade spent the entire summer over the pool table, and usually held their meetings there, in front of everyone.

Enzo told Keesha that Cody doesn't want him to use his veto. She said she doesn't want to be blindsided and asked him to let her know if she'd be leaving Thursday, and he said he would. Kevin also did some campaigning here and there, including a starstruck pitch to Janelle. Memphis blew up angrily about something - I don't know when or what about, but a few of them said it scared them. Cody, Enzo, Bayleigh, Da'Vonne held a strategy meeting and formalized their four. Today was Nicole A's turn to be ill. She's the second Have-not to have a sick day, after Ian's yesterday, and Memphis was only feeling okay because he stopped eating the slop. They've said the slop is different this year but is it something we really need anyway? Especially during pandemic plague season, when good nutrition and immune systems should be kept up. Midnight came and began Kaysar's birthday: his first in that house that didn't include eviction.

Hooray for a season at all, in the midst of this global pandemic, and while I never want any vets, I can understand why they went with all vets this summer as it eliminated all the travel and meetings involved in the usual casting process. But super big ups and double hooray for giving us a live move-in and first night feeds! We've never had that, other than OTT. Most seasons are pretty much set up in that pivotal first week and for once, we won't have to piece together what happened from skewed edits and feeds retells. As far as how things will unfold - old school versus new, males versus females, existing alliances and grudges, we'll just have to wait and see. But after a very long wait, no communications, and many unknowns, we're finally starting at what would be the halfway point in most seasons. Production is using extra anti-virus precautions and we can just hope nobody in the cast or crew gets sick, or that California and/or LA don't close down businesses again, vaporing BB22 unfinished like happened with BB Canada 8.
