Big Brother Battle Back Showdown rocks the house

BBbanner-battleback-sm.jpg

It’s time for the now annual Battle Back competition. It’s the time were evicted houseguest competes in order to re-enter the game and continue their dreams toward the grand prize. And this time, the Battle Back was literally everything.

Now I won’t do a play-by-play of it because frankly, that is pointless. This Battle Back was more thought out and do extremely well. I applaud them for making something that was literally just ehh the first time they did it and just making what it was. It also could be the fact that this cast is probably the best cast they have had in years as a whole. This so far is the best season that the United States has put on in years. Probably since Big Brother 14 or Big Brother 10.

So they did a playoff format for this year’s Battle Back. The first four evicted competed with the winner and the one that came in second moving onto the next round. Then those two competed with the winner going on to face an existing houseguest to see if they could re-enter the game. If the evicted houseguest won, then they were back in the house. But if the existing houseguest won, then the evicted houseguest would go home.

Here’s the breakdown of what happened because I’m not Julie Chen and obviously not good at explaining rules, as you can see from above:

  • Cameron and Cody beat Dominique and Jillian
  • Cody beat Cameron
  • Paul was voted by the house 11-1 to face Cody.
  • Cody beat Paul

Pretty much Mark during all of this.

Personally, I’m excited Cody to re-enter the game because that means there will be more interesting television and feed. When the houseguests found out about the Battle Back Showdown, all of them were dreading the return on Cody. Mark looked like someone kicked his puppy when he thought about the return of Cody and Dominique. Jessica thought was ecstatic to see her boyfriend return. It also helped the fact that she could prevent them from evicted him/her. Like, we all saw this coming from miles away. This is why you don’t burn bridges with the evicted houseguests unless they walked from the game or you just flat-out can’t stand them. I thought of this as soon as Megan walked away from the game and they didn’t let Cameron re-enter the game right away.

 

Speaking of Cameron, he is probably kicking himself in the face when he re-watches the episodes and realizes how much he got screwed in the first episode and how close he was to vengeance before letting it all slip away. He was literally beating Cody for most of the competition until Cody realized what worked and won the comp. I hope Big Brother does a second chance season and Cameron is one of the “returning” houseguests so he can get a fair shake at the game.

 

Paul is running the game right now. 

The fact that the whole house picked Paul proves how much of a dangerous player in the game he is. I hope they go more into their reasoning for it because it just looks like everyone is his bitch and he’s a “puppet master.” He’s in a perfect position right now to win the game if they don’t get him out. Cody and Paul are going to be gunning for each other. The one left standing will have a very high chance of making it to the end. If it’s down to Cody/Paul and Kevin, then I see Kevin being the one to win it all. Hopefully, by then, Kevin doesn’t just float on by not knowing what is going on with his “mojos” and “HOV.” I honestly believe that he’s actually faking all of that. He’s a mastermind. Kevin and Paul are the big threats in the game. I say screw Cody and Jessica and focus on getting them out before it’s too late.

 

Now that week 3 is in the books. I cannot wait to see what happens next week with the return of Cody and what curse has been placed on the house when Jess accepted the temptation.

Big Brother 19 recap: Week 2 & 3

BBbanner-sm

Originally I was going to recaps on all the shit that happened in the Big Brother house that week but it’s just too much going on. Instead, I’m just going to rant about what’s happening and my overall thoughts. It’s been a rather busy couple of weeks in the Big Brother house. Drama, fights, and tears. Let’s chat about it. THIS CONTAINS SPOILERS OF EVENT BEFORE BATTLEBACK.

Pretty much, Paul is like the newbie messiah and they are just falling him around like helpless sheep. There’s a few that aren’t but it’s pretty much the majority of the house. You think people would realize that large alliances don’t work in the game of Big Brother.  Like I’m pretty sure Paul’s side of the house has a final eight deal when most people make final five or four deals. I give them props for being realistic but I mean c’mon. Oh, and there’s already dissension in the rankings. I could have told you that one from the start.

These houseguests are like thirsty af. They many conversations a day about sex. The thirstiest of them all is Elena. Every time she’s on the live feeds, it seems to be talking about sex one way or anything. That girl has only one thing on her mind and that seems to be her showmance partner Mark’s penis. They have had multiple conversations and it’s now to the point where he also flashed it right in the middle of the backyard. It’s to the point now where I just want him to flash it so they can move on from talking about. And don’t call me thirsty now because we all know everyone looks forward to nudity of Big Brother one way or another. Nudity means interesting television.

Now that Cody is detached from her mouth, I kind of like Jessica. She’s actually not that bad. She’s rather funny. I think she will go farther in the game now that Cody is gone. The problem I had with her and Cody was the fact that they were constantly together and only interacting with other houseguests when it involved food. It was like they couldn’t go five feet from each other. But not that he is gone, she’s okay. If I had to pick my top five favorites, it would be Alex, Mark, Matt, Christmas, and Paul. Paul is only on there because he’s becoming more interesting this season than last season. I’ve also noticed that he’s using “Friendship” less often than he did last year. While I don’t want him anywhere near the final five, I do want him to go far because I’m enjoying the fact that he kept calling Nicole a snake last season and he’s now being referred to one now. He coming off as a total asshole though.

I was living for the fight between him and Dominque. Like Dom would have just laid low, she would have been fine somewhat but the paranoia got to her. While she was right on about Paul, she could have done it in a way that wouldn’t make people want to send you home. I was also living for her comments during the Veto meeting.  Like she wasn’t doing herself any favors. She was also speaking in tongues at one point. The paranoia has taken over and it blew up her game.

The final den of temptation allowed someone to halt an eviction and pretty much cancel it out. It was given to Jessica and I literally screamed with joy because it makes everything so much more enjoyable, especially if Cody reenter the house. I thought she was going to use it at the latest eviction but I’m glad she didn’t because Dominque needed to go. Dominque was evicted. It wasn’t a surprised and her speech was something that made no sense and just made her look fifty shades of cray.

I really want Josh to go home next. He’s just coming off as a whiny little brat that likes to throw fit when stuff doesn’t go his way. Like the fight he had with Mark in the backyard was over nothing and Mark walked away looking a little better than he does. They really need to take a swing at Paul and Kevin.  Both will be harder to get out as the numbers go down. Kevin is going to slide under the radar.

We’ll talk more once we know who once Battleback and HOH. I have a feeling that they will be combining the two or having both play out and giving the Battleback winner immunity for the first week back. Hopefully Cody will win because it will make for interesting TV and live feed.
