Daily Feeds Recaps

Day 25 - Saturday - August 29, 2020

They puttered around and gossiped and griped as they waited for the veto draw, which came later than most Saturdays. Tyler was vertical again after his slop sick day yesterday, Dani griped about being hungry, Dani and Nicole griped in general, Kevin made erroneous statements about how feeds work, and David said he'd wanted to do Love Island this summer. Direct and indirect tension between various hamsters continued to simmer. Veto players were picked around 1.30pm: Enzo, Kaysar, Kevin plus Bayleigh, David, Tyler. David was Kevin's HG Choice.

Nicole's wedding invitation came up yet again as Enzo and Tyler heard about her uninviting Janelle for the first time. Nicole carried it on for quite awhile, again, and it sounds like we heard her redone farewell: she actually used the word "uninvited" in her first version. She said she feels really bad and "it's gonna haunt me," but she also said "because I didn't do it to just anybody, I did it to the legend." She was reassured it wouldn't be a big deal out here, but those reassuring her didn't see/hear Janelle's eviction QAs yesterday. Nicole also said "Dani's the one who told me to do it, I never even would have thought of it on my own," which we already knew, but it was an interesting admission. Nicole kept going about it to Kevin and Dani including the various backstories, and Kevin's reaction when Nicole said "Janelle was supposed to be my friend" this season is everything. Kaysar and Bayleigh had another lengthy session of lecturing by him that was largely unreceptive by her. That was followed by after-gripes by Bayleigh to Da'Vonne and to Tyler.

Feeds were down for veto comp a little before 7pm until about 9.30pm and Kevin won the veto, so it will be used for the first time this season. Competitors were very messy and paint splattered, and several said Kevin had killed it, including David. It sounded like last year's Pose In Ivy comp where they had to hang onto slowly-shifting hand and leg "vines," being pulled in different directions while getting splatted with goop. Tyler said it was the hardest comp he'd ever done, though that may have been just talk (especially if he threw it), and there were a number of sore leg muscle complaints. David was visibly annoyed at himself, and Kaysar seemed to be also though he didn't vocalize it like David. Bayleigh tossed her goggles when she came off, and apologized about that at the showers. Memphis wore a red glitter jacket with tails and very tall top hat to host, and hurt his back somehow. Kevin told Enzo "you gave me that victory" and they said they'd talk later, so Enzo may have thrown it to Kevin at the end? We'll find out. Enzo had said Ian was his renom plan but that was if Kaysar came off the block - I don't think he (or anyone) expected Kevin to win - but he said he doesn't want to put up Ian now. Nicole and Dani did their psst-psst thing, but I need a break from listening to that. It's always the same anyway.

Enzo said someone from Slick Six might have to go up as a new pawn against Kaysar, and Cody said he would - maybe joking, maybe not. Christmas had also volunteered earlier today should the need arise. A new virus strain appeared in the habitat as Kevin started displaying signs of vetoitis, saying "I want these fools to know I'm not a fucking pawn, I'm gonna fuck up your plans." He also said he thought Bayleigh would win that comp because it was "some yoga shenanigans." Kaysar asked Ian for his vote but Ian wouldn't commit, saying it would depend who else is up and other non-answers that mean no. Kaysar joined HOH for a little while and rummaged through the snacks, adding a general awkwardness to the atmosphere.

Bayleigh and Da'Vonne discussed keeping Kaysar if Ian should go up as renom, which was a switch after they were trashing Kaysar for much of the day. Dani suggested a house meeting after veto meeting to tell Kaysar they like and respect him but he'll be going home, so he can enjoy the rest of his week and they wouldn't have to listen to him campaign. Enzo and Cody liked the idea. Enzo and Kevin again agreed they wouldn't put each other up as original or renom going forward, and this time they shook on it. Enzo's art of the shmooze is that good, that Kevin's almost grateful now that he went on the block. A loud group ball-tossing game with several of them broke out around 1.45am.

Day 26 - Sunday - August 30, 2020

Morning came late, with many of them still snoozing in bed at 11.30am. The usual early rise club of Memphis, David, Kaysar waited for the rest of them to start rattling around, but Memphis was fairly miserable with his sore back. He moved with difficulty to go horizontal on the living room couches, and from there to the bedroom floor, where he was a captive audience for Christmas to talk crossfit. Much of this day will be renom roulette as the various alliances decide who to pawn. Christmas is the front-runner as of early afternoon (she volunteered), but Ian's anxiety and related rocking increased.


Kevin spent some time skulking around the camera room looking for hiding places, presumably for eavesdropping spots or maybe for future hide 'n seek. He tried inside/under a bed and behind a closet, muttering to himself as he went. A late afternoon convo between Enzo and Kevin indicated Enzo would indeed take Christmas up on her offer to be the renom. Most of them still want Kaysar gone, but this will definitely set off some new waffles for the rest of the week.

The backyard finally opened again which pleased them, as always. Several of them saw something in the sky that interested and confused them - I don't know what that was about, but at 6.35pm a wall yeller hollered "Nicole and Cody are playing everyone." They yelled it twice, clearly, before feeds cut to starfishies, and then to adoptable anipals. Christmas, Memphis, Kaysar were out there chatting, as well as Cody, Ian, Tyler who were playing pool, and Bayleigh had just gone outside. I don't know who else was out there, if anyone. @BBRennyStan may have been the one who did it, and the line was suggested by @EvelDick. Feeds were down almost four hours.

There were a number of references about the yeller. Christmas asked Da'Vonne her thoughts on Nicole, saying she didn't know she was close with Cody. Da'Vonne said she didn't either "until I saw that." Enzo told Nicole in the pantry about Christmas being the renom, saying Christmas knows but don't tell anyone. Enzo reported that to Kevin, and said Kaysar had been telling him how cutthroat BB7 was, and this isn't. Enzo added this is (but we're all waiting to see it). Cody told Dani he's not getting to final three now, "I'm fucked after tonight." He also said he wanted Nicole to repair some pants but now he can't ask because everyone would think they're an alliance. Kaysar met with Enzo and ran his usual "it'd be foolish" if he did this or that loops, and said he wanted a "man-to-man conversation" to discuss renom options, saying he's a "dead man walking." Enzo told him everyone wants him out so he's going with that because everyone's aligned with everyone. Kaysar pressed, hard, and said the only chance he'd have would be against David because he's pissed off so many people, and he pitched an offer to work with Enzo going forward because nobody would suspect them.

Kaysar was replaced in HOH by Christmas who told him to expect a pitch from Da'Vonne for a new team made up of her, Bayleigh, David, Kevin, possibly Christmas, possibly Enzo, possibly Memphis, and Kaysar if he stays. Bayleigh and Da'Vonne made that pitch to Enzo, saying the other side will have majority numbers for the duration unless they did something. They stressed the importance of Slick Six but Enzo played dumb, because of course he is in that majority on the other side, and they proposed Dani as renom to get her gone. Enzo acted agreeable to that, but said it'd be better if someone else did that in a week or two.

Since "Nicole and Cody are playing everyone" didn't make most of them rethink their positions, it'll likely still be Christmas as renom tomorrow and Kaysar leaving on Thursday. Whether they let Kaysar know he's gone so he'll relax, stop campaigning, and enjoy his last days or not, there will still be pointless waffling for the next few days.

Permanent gripe/comment until slop is done: They need to do away with slop in general, but especially during pandemic plague season when good nutrition should be a major priority on their highly-touted list of safety concerns.

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 1/0 - 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.
