It’s still a bit boring inside the house. To me, it’s like Interstate 10 between San Antonio and El Paso. Not a lot to see, but a seemingly infinite amount of time to see it.
I think Jozea has at least seven votes to go home, possibly more by the time the live show comes around. I can envision scenarios where the remaining four votes go to Paulie, Bridgette, or split among the two. (During BB15 and their MVP twist, three HG’s were nominated, but at least one of the nominees on the block would get no votes, and twice the vote was unanimous.)
Much like Joey Van Pelt a couple of years ago, Jozea (and his delusions) is feeds gold, and we will miss him when he’s gone, no doubt. Enjoy him while you can, but…might we see him again? It is widely been reported that Glenn did NOT go home when he was evicted by competition, so it seems like the show may have designs of bringing back a houseguest before the jury phase, something we haven’t seen since BB13. It’s another element of the show I’m not a fan of (outside of Amy’s resurrection on BB3 to evict the cocky Chiara), but it must be a popular element, because they always go back to it.
Where the game goes forward is where the fun starts, with the HOH competition playing out on the live show. I’m going to take a wild guess that the comp will revolve around the team concept somehow, and the winning team will have to decide who wears the crown. But I could be wrong about that.
Ratings have not been good in the early going, with the last two of three episodes on CBS doing below the seasonal average last year of 6.18 million viewers. With the show in the last year of a two-year deal, it’s something worth keeping an eye on. I highly doubt this will wind up being BB’s last season, as I could easily see it moving to another network if the Eye Network no longer wants it. FOX has had so many Big Brother imitation shows over the years, I could easily see it winding up there, for example. With the show a cash cow for the CBSAA apps over a variety of devices, I highly doubt CBS would let this property go to another network, especially with the significant other of Les Moonves hosting the show.
Tuesday night’s events on the live feeds made me wonder how soon it will be before this first alliance of eight, and the “Fatal Five” alliance within the alliance, will all come crumbling down. Between Nicole’s insecurities and hidden cattiness and Da’Vonne mishandling key information (and perhaps the hidden agenda of wanting to take James out), it makes me wonder when the claws will come out. Tiffany handled the problem with much more grace than her sister probably would have, using Vanessa’s interrogation techniques that would make the CIA proud to get to the heart of the matter.
Later on in the night, Bronte made the bone-headed move of giving some of the other women dirty looks, which did not go unnoticed by Da’Vonne and Zakiyah. They reported it back to other members of the “Fatal Five” alliance, so should they control HOH, Bronte’s days may be numbered. But with many possible moves, I suppose that’s not set it stone.
The night’s feed watching (at least for me) wound down with the house getting its 3rd booze delivery in 4 days, which prompted the drinking game of “Never Have I Ever” where if anyone playing did the deeds the speaker had never done, they had to take a swig of wine.
Now a couple days closer to eviction, tensions seem to have ratcheted up. I’ll be back with more tomorrow, as I sense there will be some stuff to talk about.
