Daily Feeds Recaps

Day 16 - Thursday - August 20, 2020

The HOH lockdown/body count came along before 10am so the crew could do their rehearsal for the not-live eviction show. Most of them were happy to nap as they were up late scurrying around about last night's late events. Kaysar got Christmas to commit to keeping Nicole A to force a tie if Memphis agrees to that. Christmas reported that to Memphis, who asked why Kaysar was doing all this, and said he wasn't going to give anyone an answer ahead of time. After lockdown, Kaysar told Memphis he has the votes, and Memphis said he doesn't think he does. More scurrying ensued, like it does: Memphis told Nicole A if she can get the six votes needed for a tie, "90% I'm gonna keep you," Ian told David he has his vote, and Kevin told Kaysar and Janelle that Da'Vonne wasn't going to vote with them. All that adds up to Nicole A will still be socially distant from Julie in a few hours, barring additional unexpected changes. Nicole finally found out, and commenced sobbing.

Julie used a poor cliche choice with "when the smoke cleared" in her recap, as much of California is on fire tonight. She wished Dani a happy birthday and said she'd looked like "that pretty actress Busy Philipps" last week, and at some point during the show she changed her Twitter nick to "Give Me Some Crab Legs, Something". The edit dove right in on Janelle and Kaysar trying to save Nicole A, and they accurately blamed Nicole F, Dani, Kevin for poisoning Nicole A against Janelle, but they went soft on that. They also included Janelle's tears over Nicole A, but out of sequence. Nicole's nominee speech said she wanted to play All-Stars not All-Scared, and she dinged Memphis for targeting her, a non-threat. She was evicted 10-2, with Enzo and Kevin the two dissenters. Julie let her know Janelle and Kaysar were sincere in wanting to save and work with her, and told her "Janelle even cried about it."

The HOH comp was Mug Shots, which they had a practice for yesterday. They went one at a time to slide one mug down each of three shuffleboard-like ramps, with a goal of landing in the highest score zones. They had 30 seconds each and if winning scores were tied, the shortest time would win. Total scores in order were Cody 4, Enzo 8, David 6, Christmas 8/slower than Enzo, Da'Vonne 7, Kevin 7, Ian 10, Nicole 9, Dani 4, Tyler 12, Bayleigh 7, Janelle 11, Kaysar 5, making Tyler the new HOH. Feeds came back for a hot minute and Nicole was griping about Janelle having called her "a b-word" and then they went back to adoptable anipals for unknown reasons.

Feeds finally came back around 9pm, with no explanation why they'd been down. Several had been napping, and Ian was told his All Star Wars task was over, but he didn't get the part. Kevin whined a long time to Janelle about the past two weeks and she tried to bang some sense into him about their precarious position, and where to go from here. And Janelle told him about the Amazing Race drama, and said it was funny "the biggest wimp in the house" (Nicole F) yelled at her tonight, and she could go around yelling at Nicole to break her down, but that would make her the victim and that's what she wants. Kevin later retold that convo to Dani, and Bayleigh, and David, with the Amazing Race stuff but without the yelling/victim part. Ian suggested Four Prime as the name for a new alliance with Cody, Dani, Nicole, and they touched hands to solidify. Ian said they could add extra side hamsters to become Five Prime or Six Prime, but these two pairs would be the core. Cody asked Ian if he was with Janelle and he said no, she thinks so but she ruined Nicole A's game. He also said they needed to get Janelle out before any viewer votes come along.

Tyler got his room around 10.30pm, but once again it was withheld from feeds. He got pics of Angela, kombucha, Vizzy, salsa, and a whole load of other stuff which he unpacked later from a shopping bag downstairs. Kevin stuck around his room after pics and letter to shmooze and Tyler implied he was good, and he asked Kevin if he voted to evict Nicole A. Kevin said no, he wouldn't do that to her, and he said Janelle and Kaysar "did her dirty." Nicole went to check in with Tyler who said he's sticking with "the plan" to nominate Janelle and Kaysar, and they agreed Enzo would probably be the best plus one for Safety comp, in case Kevin needs to go up as renom pawn. Christmas and Tyler named themselves The Carolinas.

Day 17 - Friday - August 21, 2020

Morning came early and feeds went off for their final Safety Suite comp around 10am. Well, they'd have their one hour to reserve their spot first, but that's pretty much just a formality this week, as the only eligibles were Dani, Enzo, Memphis, Nicole. Most of the big alliancers met with Tyler last night individually to hear his reassurances he was going to nominate Janelle and Kaysar later today, and he told several of them maybe he'll just say "you tell me why you're on the block" when he does, and that he doesn't have to say much beyond "it's what the house wants" as far as Reasons. Kaysar met with Tyler this morning, running his logical but pointless spiel, like he does. It's too late for all that, and it won't help.

Feeds came back a little before 2pm. Enzo won the Safety comp and selected Christmas as his plus one. Enzo said the comp was fun to play: cross a foggy room avoiding laser beams, get a giant ball from a vault, and dodge the beams again to carry it back. It sounded like he selected Christmas to disguise the fact she's working with them/Tyler, and might have gone on the block otherwise. He and Tyler also discussed Da'Vonne, worried about what she'll do. The pantry was restocked and Christmas led a workout for several of them. Janelle and Ian talked about BB14 a bit, and what a trainwreck Willie was. Janelle told Kaysar she'd talked to Tyler, saying "he's super nice" and he told her he "has to do what the house wants." That made Kaysar grunt-sigh, and Janelle had to convince him that meant the two of them, and not Memphis. She reminded him they'd been on the block before, and they'd agreed to adapt this season as needed. Enzo and Cody had an anti-Da'Vonne meeting. Tyler and David had a check-in with some anti-Memphis and anti-Dani, and they agreed Tyler would keep an eye on/shmooz Dani and David on Da'Vonne, and they'd compare notes.

Tyler nominated Janelle and Kaysar, as planned. Both took it in stride, they expected it, but I don't think they were aware before now that virtually everyone in there was gunning for them, rather than just the majority. Janelle busied herself making slop chips after the noms, and said her pic looked good when blown up on the nominees screen, which is the kind of thing that tends to tick off her enemies. Enzo mentioned to Tyler and a couple others that his speech was cold-blooded, but Dani said it was nice. It's been a lot of years since Janelle was the veto champ but maybe tomorrow will see a revival of that. Or maybe she'll decide she'd just as soon go home to her great life than hang around hamsters for another 68 days. Ditto with Kaysar: Bayleigh said she can't believe she signed up for this again and he replied "you're telling me? I ask myself that every day."

A group game broke out involving shouting out names and tossing something back and forth, and that evolved into noisy charades. Apparently Janelle and Kaysar were asked to join, and Kaysar eventually did, but Janelle didn't. They and we therefore missed out on her patented hilarious Drunken Animal Charades, but the drunken component was missing anyway. There was some more talk about Twitter, BB Twitter specifically, and it wasn't complimentary. Bayleigh said "it's toxic and for no reason," adding "you don't make money off of Twitter, you can make money off any other platform except Twitter." Cody chimed in with "Twitter sucks!" Okay then. Bayleigh asked Janelle about Nicole, and she said people have asked what she doesn't like about her: "isn't it obvious? she's a liar, a backstabber," and she mentioned the Amazing Race stuff "she's a snake," and she said she (Janelle) is gunning for her. Kaysar and Da'Vonne held a lengthy, valuable, moving convo about religion, and race, and the idiotic "all lives matter" reactions to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Nicole told Da'Vonne that David was crushing on her, and she said "it's annoying." When Nicole told her someone (Dani? not sure) was encouraging him and telling him to "let it grow, let it grow" Da'Vonne screamed. Bayleigh and Dani joined (at different times I think), they agreed to stop teasing Da'Vonne about it, and they discussed showmances. Dani said "showmances get you far, ask Nicole." Nicole said they were distractions and fun, and she wouldn't be here as an All-Star without them. Bayleigh said it took Nicole "a couple tries and a couple guys" to win, and Nicole cried later about that, saying it had hurt her feelings. Later Da'Vonne told Bayleigh that she'd made Nicole cry. Bayleigh said she was starting to like some people so she's started joking around some, but realized some are getting away with that (Kevin and Christmas were mentioned) and she wasn't. Da'Vonne told her she (Bay) has the upper hand because Nicole wanted to know how she could get back into Bayleigh's good graces, rather than being mad at her. Enzo, who's got a history of hating being a Have-not, wasn't feeling well from slop, and ate a whole bag of Ricolas (which are allowed) for a snack.

2nd evicted, Day 16

Imagine going on BB and not wanting to work with Janelle and Kaysar. Having them to go bat for you, hard, and then throwing it back in their faces. It's mind-boggling. She was in way over her head this season, made one bad decision after another, and she repeatedly promised us a house meeting that she never delivered.

Won: Nothing
HOH 0 - Veto 0 - Noms 1 - HN 0
1st evicted, Day 9

She was feisty her first time around but like all of them, she's older and more mature now, and her birthday happened before they moved in, so we didn't get any new memorable Keesha scenes. But it was good to see her again and she got a nice check for two weeks isolation and one week of summer camp.
