Day 58 Thursday August 16
I think Rockstar may have had a gut feeling this was her last morning in there but didn't want to acknowledge it to herself - that's just human nature, but hard to watch when you know. She hit up Sam and asked her not to toss anyone (Kaycee) a pity vote like she did last week, and to say "everybody's so shy about where their vote is" because of the final Hacker task to cancel someone's. What Rockstar didn't know is that wasn't shyness, but just a handy excuse to keep her, Haleigh, and Fessy in the dark. Haleigh in particular finally started putting some of the Level 6/5/4 pieces together late last night, but too late to help this week. Haleigh gave Scottie a haircut and then Sam touched it up later. Sam and JC talked about the vote for a long time, and ended with another pinkyswear for the tally that Sam would vote to keep Kaycee (she already was, but she made sure to add "if that's what you want") and that they would work together going forward.

Rockstar was evicted 5-1, with Scottie the lone dissenter. Fessy's vote was secretly nullified by the Hacker (Kaycee). Kaycee's nominee speech mocked the (fake) all girls' alliances, and Rockstar's said Angela, Kaycee, Tyler are a clear alliance who meet together all the time, and keeping Kaycee would empower them more. Angela's farewell wasn't very nice, as she'd described on feeds, and Brett told her his "secret alliance" with her was fake all along. Julie made Rockstar tear up when she asked about OTEV, and then Rockstar was gone to jury.

The HOH comp was indeed the slippy slide/skating in grease, titled Glow & Flow, in Club BB setting. They had brightly colored outfits and had to get "rave fuel" to fill up a "glowstick" and fish out the ping pong ball, with an optional smaller "glowstick" for $5,000. Their carrying cups were bigger than usual, the fill tubes were smaller than the usual bowls, and the incline didn't look as steep as some years. Fessy won in just 24 minutes, and nobody got the $5,000. JC switched over to attempt it midway, but didn't succeed.

It didn't last long but it was exhausting just the same, and most of them hit the deck when Fessy won. Scottie had been close behind Fessy, and later JC said he'd had an especially hard time (it showed), saying Fessy was covering a lap in three strides when it took him 300. He also said when he realized he wasn't going to get anywhere he started hamming up his fail. Back inside, Fessy told Tyler "I don't know what none of y'all muthafuckas got going on in this house, I don't even know if I want to hear what all y'all muthafuckas got to say to me 'cause it's gonna be some bullshit!" Tyler said "just do you," and Fessy replied "that's what I've been doing, I've been telling y'all muthafuckas every week what I've been doing, and doing it!" And he told a few others he wouldn't be doing one-on-ones. They all filed gradually into the shower so that'll probably be clogged up within a day or two from all the Crisco.

But first, Fessy and Haleigh smeared their Crisco around the lounge as they discussed noms. They had another little spat but got past it relatively quickly, but not before an idle threat to put her up. Fessy laughed and said she'd probably go home because they can't do anything right, game-wise. Fessy told her he won't put up Angela and Kaycee because they "can't win anything" later on, and he didn't want to put up Tyler and Scottie for fear Scottie would use a veto on Tyler. He said he wanted a guy to go - Brett, Tyler, or Scottie - and they ran scenarios for how best to make that happen. Fessy said JC was convinced Scottie's an emotional player and has a crush on Haleigh, and that Sam thinks he (Fessy) is gay. Haleigh told him Sam has a crush on Brett, so I guess that's out most everywhere now.

Scottie told Haleigh he'll do whatever she wants, and they eventually (finally) realized they were up against a large, solid alliance and had been all along. Level 6/5/4 decided Brett should take the credit for the dissenting vote to throw doubt on Scottie when he claims it, and Brett stayed isolated like an outcast (again). Sam gave Rockstar several eulogies to whoever would listen, and she was pleased they ended up with a bunch of glowsticks. Later she told Brett that she kinda likes him and ask him not to flirt with her anymore so she doesn't look like a fool: "what this is, is done." And she asked him to keep her up to date as far as game goings-on. JC told Fessy he was being a "fuckin asshole" (early stage HOHitis), but Fessy said he "doesn't give a fuck." JC told Tyler, Angela, Kaycee he'll tell Fessy that Scottie had been coming after Fessy for some time, and that he'd seen Scottie and Haleigh cuddling. Tyler asked JC to urge Fessy to save him for renom (reminder, his Cloud power is good for two more cycles).

Fessy got his room around 10.32pm with a letter from his mom (and dad) that choked him up awww, red wine (requested for Haleigh and others as he doesn't drink), cookies from Pop, two hoodies, a black & white hat, Pakistani rice, mangoes, snacks galore, and music by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie. He announced he wasn't holding formal one-on-ones, he knew it's a lie/cheat/steal game but he'd been left in the dark and lost his peeps, and he's "pretty much alone." He asked his usual who flipped, and Scottie said he was the vote to evict Kaycee. A minute later Brett said "fuck it, it was me." Scottie said "you're a bullshit actor," Kaycee joined in, acting irate (emphasis on acting), saying "I'm not close with this guy" [Brett] and "everyone's been acting weird with me." Fessy said "see what I was saying? I never know what the hell's going on," the HOH reveal was adjourned, and everyone left. By the way Sam had left early as she'd been about to shower so she missed everything including the letter. After they all left, Fessy laughed and said "well I didn't expect all that, but I'll take it." JC took Haleigh aside and started a filibuster, and Scottie asked Kaycee if they could talk and she refused.

Brett and Scottie sat down in the lounge to play Jenga, silently. JC and Haleigh returned to HOH and the wine was opened. Fessy had some too (reminder, he usually doesn't drink). Fessy asked who they thought the vote really was and Haleigh said Brett. JC launched into his spiel, focusing on "Scottie's an emotional player" and including reams of revisionist history. Fessy asked what they think he should do, and JC said he probably wants to do "something crazy like Brett and Tyler together or some shit," but said even if one goes, the other will stay and be gunning for Fessy. Haleigh said listen to JC and whatever he says, they should do, and she put on the red HOH robe. JC said "Scottie's coming hardcore" for Fessy, and said he should save Scottie for backdoor renom as he can win vetos, and finally suggested he put up Brett and Kaycee.

Fessy, Haleigh, JC polished off the wine and they got pretty tipsy (JC may have been exaggerating, it's hard to say). Fessy made a toast, saying "it'll be good on TV." Scottie joined them for awhile and it was awkward, and even more awkward when he left saying "love you" and Haleigh said "love you too." Tyler and Angela chatted in bed about BB and non-BB things, like they do. Fessy and Haleigh had a spat (or not) with him saying he wants her, her saying he has her, him saying come here, her saying "no, you pissed me off, now I'm gonna go talk shit about you with JC," him saying "don't let the door hit you on the way out," and her saying "kiss my ass, Fessy" before she plopped onto him in bed. They resumed gametalk after that, and it sounded like Fessy's planning on putting up Brett and Scottie, and he wanted to hold meetings after noms but Haleigh said that isn't how it works. He said he'll pitch a deal to Tyler to spare him if he'll protect Haleigh going forward, and he wanted to make a similar pitch to Angela and Kaycee. After that they moved onto sippy slurpydurp making out. After that, they argued about whether Haleigh could/should console Scottie about the vote fiasco (and when he's on the block). JC reported to Tyler that he wasn't going up and "they are stupid," and then he reported to Brett and suggested he approach Fessy in the morning.

Scottie and Kaycee made up with a hug. A little after 12.30am they got a gift basket from Pop and After Dark, congratulating them on enduring the comp. It had lotions, cold compresses, loofahs, bubble bath, and of course snacks. Over gift basket snacks, Sam told Kaycee and Scottie that Orwell was from the novel 1984, about Big Brother. That's very rare in the BB house, and that in itself is extremely ironic, considering.

Day 59 Friday August 17
Fessy had meetings with Tyler, Angela, Kaycee and repeated many times to each that he's "a man of his word" and that he wouldn't put any of them up. He pushed his anti-Scottie and anti-Brett agendas, and pitched if they all "come together as a house" and work together, they can make this week easier because no one would change noms if they win veto. Fessy retold to Haleigh, including that he doesn't trust Tyler but Tyler hadn't "fucked him over like those guys have." Fessy later told his revised Brett/Scottie plan to JC (rather than last night's Scottie/Kaycee plan they'd discussed). Kaycee apologized to both Fessy and Haleigh about last night, and all agreed to not "let it be weird." Scottie made his way up to HOH and pitched Sam for the block, and they chatted about the comp. Fessy said he doesn't care "who's talking to who down there" - if not now, when?

Brett played solo potball in the lounge for a bit, then met up with Sam in his Have-not isolation chamber. He told her he'd been studying and she said she'd seen one of his "art projects." He asked if she'd found and removed his prior study candies and she said no. He told her he hadn't talked to Fessy but Tyler had told him he and Scottie would likely be going up. Sam said Tyler could win the veto and take Brett off, and she asked Brett to be her BB teacher since Rockstar had been doing that. She said she thought she could probably do well at the end, citing Rockstar's retell of Enzo, but added she still felt destined to end up in "the little house" (jury). Sam offered to go to HOH and "bargain for him" but Brett said no need, as that side thought the two of them (Sam/Brett) have had a final two all along, a story he credited to Rockstar. Sam laughed and said she had wondered if Brett had F2 plans with her that he hadn't told her about, and she said she felt "extemely embarrassed" about having talked about her crush on Brett in Diary.They shook hands that they'll play BB for each other, and they pinkyswore she'll "get out of here and fuck my own life up before I fuck yours up" and "you basically just got a body double" - he said from now on he's her Rockstar, following her around everywhere. She asked about showmances going on, including he and Haleigh - he said Haleigh's 'mancing with Fessy, and Sam said she'd like to see Haleigh and Angela on the block. JC popped in and Sam told him she'd pick him over Brett (in front of Brett), and later Sam told Brett she thought Mr & Mrs Smith was about him and her. She said she likes listening to him sleep when he's alone in Have-not, and she said she'll be ready to go to "the little house" when her time comes, but she might need him to hold her, and that she hoped he wins the game.

Scottie rinsed out his comp clothes in the downstairs bathroom sink and offered to do Haleigh's, which could make the inevitable Crisco clog happen even sooner. He asked Haleigh "there's no chance [Fessy]'s putting me up, right?" and she said she didn't think so (lie), but maybe he should go talk to him. So Scottie trotted upstairs and opened with "so you wanna talk about my little plan last night and how it all blew up?" They did BB Math and discussed hinky votes present and past, and Fessy wondered if it's like this every season? He said it always looked to him that people just vote how they feel, and that's that. Fessy finally asked "how the hell is Brett still here?" since he hadn't won anything but had been on the block twice, and Scottie said that shows "he's not a lone wolf." Perhaps unfortunately for Scottie, he also said he'd been tight with Tyler until he confessed that he was smitten with Haleigh "and then things changed." Fessy's prior determination to nominate Brett and Scottie all came down to jealousy over their closeness with Haleigh in my opinion, as he kept hanging on to wanting the two of them on the block even in the face of logic presented to him from various people as to why there were better choices for him. We'll know soon enough if Scottie made an impact or not.

Meanwhile Sam told Angela her spiel about Enzo (Rockstar's version) and how it could apply to her this year, and that she'd thought Fessy was gay. Angela in turn told Sam her backstory saga, and said that only Tyler and Kaycee had heard it, and she asked Sam to keep it to herself - maybe that was a retell test.

Nope, no impact: Fessy nominated Brett and Scottie as planned. Feeds came back to hugs all around, complete with Angela's expression giving away some insincerity for hers with Haleigh. Fessy gave Scottie a lengthy explanation, with an audience of Haleigh, Kaycee, Tyler, and a grinning JC, which basically boiled down to him putting up the two guys who claimed last night's rogue vote, and that he didn't know what was going on, and "everybody has secret deals, none of that shit ever lasts." Back in his room later, Fessy said "that's how you do a nomination ceremony, fellas!" - err, not so much. Sam reported that to Brett as a "big fake fight" and Brett said he'd had a feeling he might go up. Sam said he had her vote, he's her "fake husband" now.

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.
