My Current Thoughts on Season 20

If you’ve been reading here a while, then you know in the summer months I’m a HUGE fanatic three days a week watching this show…

I can not hold back my Big Brother thoughts a day longer.

I watched the Big Brother that aired last night and am chatting about it.  If you haven’t seen it yet, come back to this post after you watch.

I’m gonna keep my thoughts short and sweet but these are the top FIVE things I want to discuss.

Showmances-Aren’t these happening REALLY early in the game?  I’m not sure two showmances have formed before this early in the game EVER.  Do you guys remember?  Does it feel soon to you? And did anyone think Kaitlyn seemed to be a little jealous of the Faysal/Haleigh showmance?

Sam-I felt absolutely AWFUL for her when she had to be the robot.  That was a tough punishment ESPECIALLY the first week in the house!  She owes her remaining time in the house to Tyler and his smooth talking skills.  Right now he seems to be a bit of a puppet master.  Right?  I didn’t see that coming!

The Crap Apps-I’m not sure if it shows my sense of humor or makes me sound really lame, but I LOVE those apps.  I thought the Hamazon App was awful in a hilarious sort of way.  I think I’ve told you before I’m super picky when it comes to meat.  But I’m fairly certain if I was playing that game and had to eat huge shipments of ham, I’d have had to wave the white flag on account of my gag reflex.  And the Yeller last night was hysterical!  I was laughing out loud while I watched him surprise, scream, and annoy Rachel at every opportunity. 

Rockstar-This girl needs MAJOR props for hearing about the backdoor plan AND NOT TELLING A SOUL!  How often does THAT happen during this show?  #notever  I can’t blame Haleigh one bit for spilling the beans {it is Big Brother, after all}, but when Rockstar didn’t mention it to Faysal and they were in a room alone together…well, I thought it was impressive and deserved a little shout out.

Kaitlyn-I completely understand she wanted to make a BIG move, but am I the only one who thought naming Swaggy as her replacement nominee was a horrible move for her game at this point?  I don’t know who is going to want to align themselves with her now?  If I was in her current alliance, I’d be out and if I was in the other alliance, I wouldn’t want to pull her to my side.  Now, it must be said that as a fan of the show, I LOVE a big move, but I think she’s gonna regret this one.


That sums up my big points so far.  #iknowtherewillbelotsmore

At this point, I don’t have one house guest who’s really standing out, but I’d say I’m #teamrockstar after her ability to keep a secret last night.  That was HUGE!

Okay, if you had to vote RIGHT NOW for your favorite house guest, who would you choose?

I’m super pumped to see who goes home tonight…WINSTON or SWAGGY??!  Happy Big Brother Night, Friends!  Thanks for reading!

    So Winston is easy on the eyes and for that reason he's a favorite but let's face it….he's close to going home. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Sam so she is probably my most fave. She does owe Tyler big time but besides that, I think her charm and that crazy, thick accent just make her the most precious ever. JC's accent on the other hand is tricky for me to understand sometimes. 🙂 I am liking this season a lot so far! Oh and I wish my body looked like Angela's rockin' bod! hahaha

    You know I'm so upset that someone (cough, cough, Madeley) deleted this.

    Yes I’m not sure Kaitlyn did the right thing either. I was all biting my nails as she was about to announce her replacement nominee. Can’t wait to see what happens tonight.

    Love your recap and how much you love this show!! I love it too #guiltypleasure

    Eh, I don't think Rockstar not telling was that impressive – she now can pretend she was blindsided and once again float by because of her alliance.

    Ok Erika I love you but how does Tyler not stand out to you?? Gotta say I horribly thought he would be an airhead based on his appearance but he is playing the best so far if you ask me. Swaggy is so darn conceited and I hope he does go home.

      I’m still unsure about him. I mentioned that he seemed to be the puppet master position this season. Right? I can’t figure out if I think he’ll go far or if the house will turn on him soon?? What do you think?

    I’m so excited to see this post! I almost emailed you last night to tell you that I was dying and couldn’t wait a second longer to hear your thoughts! I have been waiting daily! I love hearing your recaps on it. I don’t really have a clear favorite yet. I think there are still too many, but I will say Kaitlin, Hayleigh, Winston, Angela, Swaggy and JC have already annoyed me. Lol. I don’t really know why other than I’ve found them to be a little big for their britches more than once. But that could just be me! I usually end up irritated because I’m not typically a fan of whoever wins. I feel like it always goes to the obnoxious ones. Maybe that’s just part of the game.

    So far, Tyler stands out as my fave. He’s playing the game and doing it pretty well (so far). I also like Sam and yes, Rockstar earned points in my book for being tight lipped. Kaitlyn is too all over the place for me—and she was definitely jealous of the whole Fezzy/Haleigh thing! Tyler has REALLY surprised me & I agree with your puppet master description!

    Tyler is my favorite!! He seems to have a sweet heart and he's adorable! I cannot STAND the arrogance with Swaggy. I hope they manage to vote him OUT!! Kaitlyn bugs me a little too so if they retaliate next week and she goes, I won't be sad. And does she not look JUST LIKE Nicole Richie?!

    I think at this point my favorite is Sam. I agree it sucked when she had to be the robot but she still bonded so well with everyone that I think she may be unstoppable as a person! LOL! I think it is WAY too early for a showmance and I also think Kaitlyn Was horribly jealous of those two!!! Cant wait to see who goes tonight! I sure hope it is Swaggy C – he is so full of himself it is actually going to be fun to watch him get shocked when they say his name! Fingers crossed!!! Annster's Domain

    I feel like she moved away from her alliance because her feelings were hurt over Faysal/Haleigh relationship. I feel like it was a move to try to hurt Faysal. Yes Tyler does feel a little bit like the puppet master except the difference is I feel he really does have a good heart, but he could be fooling me too! I like him for some reason!

    I do think putting Swaggy C up is bad for Kaitlins game. She let jealousy ruin a good alliance that she had. Our family picks players and I am happy with her decision 🙂 My player is Brett and my husband is Angela so we are in the other alliance so we're pretty happy with how things are going 🙂 I am surprised by Tyler. I really, no offense Tyler, thought he would be way more surfer dude air heady than puppet master. No one even picked him in our family. We pick after the first night watching. We're also routing for Winston (my son picked him b/c its our dog's name lol).

    Tyler is my favorite by far… I just wish he wasn’t showing how strong of s player he is so quickly. Plus he does good diary sessions.

    Well, you know how much I love all of this! Tyler is definitely calling the shots lately, and Kaitlyn was a hot sweaty mess last night…Girl, you can make a big move but don't cry about it! haha! I totally think it was a mistake for her game too! Can't wait to see what happens tonight! XO

    Tyler is by far my fav – although I have to say on the first night when they did the intros, I thought he was annoying. Swaggy needs to jet – he is wayyyy to cocky acting for me. Kaitlyn is super annoying and needs to learn to keep her mouth shut, kind of just seemed like she talked in circles. So far though, I'm really enjoying this season (after the first night, I wasn't so sure I was going to).

    I am with you, Rockstar is my fav at the moment. A close second would be Tyler because WOW, he has surprised me. Kaitlyn is just all around annoying at this point (I feel badly for her now ex-boyfried back home) and I find Swaggy's arrogance to be a bit grating as well. I like Sam and Kaycee and feel like they didnt really get to play in the beginning so hopefully we will see something out of them going forward.

    So far Tyler is my favorite! He has shocked me because first impression I didnt think he would play as well as he is. Hands down I think he is the best player at this point in the game

    Didn't think I would love Tyler during his intros, but I'm freaking obsessed with him!
    I really thought Angela and Rachel would be in a showmance by now, because they are gorgeous!
    Winston is literally from a town 30 mins from me, so I was initially pulling for him, but I don't care for him. He's kind of boring.
