Daily Feeds Recaps

Day 18 - Saturday - August 22, 2020

Dani met with Bayleigh about last night's showmance convo and the resulting Nicole tears, which Da'Vonne had already told her about. Dani then reported back to Nicole, using her patented stealth whisper, and told her Bayleigh wants to apologize. It should be noted Dani helped escalate Nicole's angst last night over all that, and today she retold it to Cody as Bayleigh "freaked out," and to Tyler. But recall Bayleigh already told Tyler about it last night, so he'll likely see Dani's stir-it-up for what it is. Janelle socialized over breakfast slop, and praised the virtues of Minnesota winters, winter sports, and throwing boiling water into freezing air. That could be fodder for anti-Janelle meetings later, because anything will do for that. Also last night, Da'Vonne had a lengthy chat/fishing expedition with Kevin, and it turns out Kaysar and Ian are also on the long list of hamsters he doesn't like.

Veto players were picked early: Bayleigh, Cody, Memphis played along with Tyler, Janelle, Kaysar. Feeds were down 1pm to 3.15pm and Cody won: it was a timed puzzle comp. So barring the extremely unexpected, which rarely happens, Janelle will be walking the plank to socially long-distanced Julie in a few days. She might go quietly or she might blow things up this week - we've seen her do both in the past. Janelle-bashing kicked off again, like it does, with Christmas giving Nicole strict "do not engage with her" instructions. Kaysar and Janelle talked about their slim options, and agreed they'd enjoyed having this time to hang out together in the BB house again. And so have most of us. They put two and two together and realized Kevin must have poisoned Nicole A against them, and they cautioned Bayleigh to be careful what she says, and to whom.

Christmas got her task for being Enzo's Safety guest: a baby star to care for, plus loads of gear including crib, stroller, carriers. A Christmas star, if you will. She has to answer its cries, and I think she has to sing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star to it - or maybe she just made that up. At any rate, Kevin didn't seem impressed with the musical part of our program. Christmas has described her post-partum depression many times and said she's still on meds for that, so this is an interesting turn of events. She got a poo poo signal and started babytalking to the toy, which she amped up at feeding time. It's going to be a long week in more ways than one.

A backgammon tournament began in the living room, and Enzo had a chat with Da'Vonne and later Bayleigh, in which he blew smoke at both, something he, Cody, Tyler had agreed to do earlier. They got a skimpy booze delivery around 8.30 - just our luck, when Janelle's a Have-not. Apparently Bayleigh apologized to Nicole, who told Dani she was still feeling a type of way, which means she isn't letting it go. And sure enough, Nicole brought it up again later to Christmas.

Kaysar and Janelle had another lengthy and enjoyable convo, which started with Kaysar missing his son, if he wondered where dad was, and he hoped nothing was being said that would hurt his family. They talked about Nicole A's bad end to her game, and they said the odds were against either of them winning, neither was here for the money, and they didn't want their games to end yet but here they are. Kaysar got teary, and Janelle encouraged him to keep gunning for it if she goes. And she told him about her bunny, and he said he'd like to get one when he gets home, if his wife agrees. Da'Vonne talked to Kevin again about her flirtmance with David, and again stressed that's all it would be - if it's even that - because she's bored. Later she and David talked for awhile, awkwardly. Christmas kept playing up her star baby signals with way too much babytalk. Tyler and Kaysar played DIY bocce ball.

Day 19 - Sunday - August 23, 2020

Memphis, Kaysar, Bayleigh were up before the wake-up music and chatted in the backyard as the rest of them began to rattle around. Christmas had a few overnight calls to tend to her baby and they continued through the day, along with her babytalk to and about it. She asked Nicole to describe her wedding plans, which she did, and she asked Christmas to attend - maybe Janelle's spot? Nicole continued griping about Janelle, and she's been adding some sniping about Bayleigh as well, thanks to seeds planted by Dani. Tyler and Enzo discussed David and where he stood, and wondered if he could be useful to them, and they talked a bit about maybe keeping Janelle rather than Kaysar (very unlikely), and they compared notes about Dani double- and triple-dipping, and they agreed they were ready to send both Da'Vonne and Bayleigh out the door sooner than later.

Janelle campaigned to Dani and pitched her plan for the next few weeks, including that she'd be targeting "anyone who was throwing her name around." Dani reported that to Cody, and later to Cody, Ian, Nicole. Cody complained about having to coddle various people, meaning be friendly to them. Christmas was called to Diary to pick up a second baby Christmas star, and she got more baby equipment for it. If they keep giving her more of them, and more baby gear for them, it'll take over the house. Bayleigh and Da'Vonne compared notes, aware of some of the not-so-secret alliances and duos, and some of the talk against them that's been going on, but not all of it. A bit later, Christmas was called to collect her third baby star, and its gear. Bayleigh tried to talk some BB sense into David - time will tell if he picks up or not. There was a wall yeller a little after 8pm and they were sent inside via a "jailhouse alarm" per Kaysar, and we were sent to extended starfishies as a result. I couldn't hear anything clearly as to what was said. @AllieMoreno_ Someone on Twitter took credit, reportedly yelling "Fuck Nicole get her out!" but it turned out somebody was yelling "Janelle."

Bayleigh and Janelle had a strategy session about how Janelle could stay, with Bayleigh suggesting they should try to get Da'Vonne, Dani, David, Memphis, Cody, Enzo votes. I don't think they'll be successful with Dani, but Janelle said she'd offer to Dani she wouldn't make "her friend" Nicole cry, and won't nominate her for two weeks. Janelle said this is turning out like BB7 All-Stars when females kept being sent out. They agreed they might be able to get Kevin if Da'Vonne tells him to vote to keep Janelle. Janelle said Kevin's not cool with her, Bayleigh said she was his childhood idol and "people have trauma in their lives." Janelle said he knows she was friends with Keesha and Kevin is taking it all personally. Bayleigh said he calls himself "King Petty" but he'll do what the group does. And Janelle found out from Bayleigh that David's close to Kevin - she said "WHAT?!" and Bayleigh told her "because of Nicole A." Talking with Kaysar later, Janelle told him Kevin poisoned Nicole A against her, and he replied "he mentally broke her".

Baleigh and Janelle thought they could also get Christmas, via Memphis. Janelle kept repeating she'd need Dani's vote for this to happen, and they'd work on that. Bayleigh approached Dani for a preliminary talk, but it wasn't encouraging. Dani reported immediately to Tyler, Cody, Enzo. Bayleigh joined and played along, but the consensus was Janelle's got to go. Later Dani, Cody, Nicole met, and Dani embellished lied about what she discussed with Bayleigh, and they plotted against Janelle, Kaysar, Bayleigh, Da'Vonne.

Christmas continued getting signals for her star baby pillows, plus calls to fetch new star baby pillows from Diary, until she was up to four. She told Enzo at four that he has to get a vasectomy because they can't afford more babies, but then she got two more star babies, and then three more, for a total of nine. Messy meetings carried on all over the habitat, with the messiest being Nicole telling Cody she's not his Zach Rance, Cody she's his Derrick.

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.
