What an extended unusual journey its been! Big Brother 20 is every little thing we love about Big Brother and a lot extra. We had blindsides, we had showmances, we had manipulation, we had comp beasts, we had a woman that made flowers out of dryer lint. We had all of it – and after 99 days, we come to the ultimate night time.
By now you already know its Tyler vs Kaycee within the ultimate HoH – and 99.99% probability it is going to be Tyler vs. Kaycee for the win. I personally assume Kaycee has it locked up, however the final 2 years, I used to be satisfied if Paul was within the remaining 2 seats – he was going to win, so go to Vegas and put all of it on Tyler!
For my season finale rankings, I’m going to do one thing a bit of totally different. As an alternative of rating the gamers, I’m going to rank myself based mostly on my preseason predictions. You’ll be able to learn the entire rankings per participant right here – http://bigbrothernetwork.com/adam-poch-big-brother-20-player-rankings-preseason/ – I’ll simply give highlights (or lowlights). Let’s see if I get Bacon or Tofu for every. We’ll go within the order of evictions:
Steve Arienta – 2 strips of Tofu. I used to be principally proper about him not with the ability to mix in & being annoying together with his tales whereas individuals pretending to assume he’s humorous – however I additionally predicted he’d be the primary juror. He by no means actually stood an opportunity with this crew. Isolating himself with Scottie the primary week – and by no means actually preventing for votes vs a robotic.
Swaggy C – three strips of Tofu. I used to be excessive on Chris preseason – and swore I might not seek advice from him as Swaggy – however right here I’m consuming the juice. I appropriately predicted he’d be good at comps – however sadly him profitable the primary 2 gave his over-inflated ego a a lot greater increase! That was his downfall – and what I thought-about a lock for Remaining 6 – ended up going house week 2. He did give us some nice shock-a-face week 1. Just like Eric (aka Cappy) from S6 – avenging his eviction was all his allies needed to do. In contrast to Cappy, Swaggy’s alliance have been a number of the worst gamers in BB historical past!
Winston Hines (and by affiliation Brett) – 2 strips of Bacon – I knew these 2 would bro up immediately. It was fairly apparent – however they have been thick as thieves from the bounce. I additionally predicted certainly one of them could possibly be evicted early as a result of they have been too obnoxious. In my very own head although – I combined them up. I used to be satisfied Brett was going to be the early boot for being an entire douche-bag. He was a humorous douche-bag – whereas it was Winston that got here off too cool for everybody else and that made him the straightforward boot by his personal alliance. I used to be virtually right that one in every of them was going to make Remaining four – and if Brett didn’t open his mouth about going towards Tyler’s women – he would have. They will not be in the identical vein of The Hitmen, The Renegades, or Chilltown – however they are going to be remembered as The Bros for seasons to return.
Kaitlyn Herman – 2 strips of Tofu – for the primary jiffy of BB20 – I used to be so glad I used to be Group Kaitlyn preseason. I actually needed her to do properly, and I assumed for positive she’d be an excellent manipulator. Sadly – she turned all boy loopy – and her energy to get individuals to do what she needed flew away like Grandpa Lou over the CBS lot. She was top-of-the-line / distinctive characters we had on the season – and she or he made waves inside & outdoors the home. I predicted she’d make it to mid jury, the producers predicted she’d be capable of put collectively a six-piece puzzle. We have been each incorrect!
Rachel Swindler – four strips of Tofu – I had lots of proper in my preseason prediction – she was hated by most, she was evicted pre-jury – and… that was about it. I assumed she can be in a showmance, that by no means occurred, I assumed she’d win some comps, by no means occurred, and I assumed she can be a goal all recreation and probably find yourself the winner… by no means occurred!! She did depart a mark on this season nevertheless – her “eviction stomp” out the door was virtually nearly as good as Cody strolling throughout the espresso desk final yr.
Bayleigh Dayton – four strips of Bacon – once I stated her mouth would get her in hassle, I by no means predicted she would inform her enemy, the individual she nominated, that she had a secret energy. Once I stated her I anticipate main fireworks from her, I by no means predicted she’d yell so loud and violently that she would find yourself actually spitting blood! I did predict she can be on the mistaken aspect of the votes early and giving an eviction interview sooner than most. She might have been a a lot better participant had she simply stored her mouth shut. However she is going to stroll out of the home and provides us one other shock face when Swaggy will get down on his knee to suggest. (Spoiler?)
Rockstar – 5 strips of Bacon – I nailed this one… nailed it! That is what I stated – I might like to get together with Angie – however unsure if she has the skillset to win the sport. She is going to get carried alongside the sport and be the basic “not gonna waste an HoH on her” till they should. Jury assure, however I feel her biggest asset will probably be her unintentional comedy on the CBS present.
Faysal Shafaat – 1 strip of Bacon – I appropriately predicted he’d have a woman in his mattress, and he was a part of not one however of the craziest love triangles in BB historical past. He was in the midst of the Tyler / Kaitlyn / Fessy one, in addition to the Haleigh, Fessy, Kaitlyn one. I additionally thought he’d probably throw his recreation away for a woman, which he did. He was a warrior early by profitable a few Vetos, but in addition completely destroyed the Slip n Slide HoH competitors. I assumed he’d be ultimate 6 – however he fell in need of that – and his aforementioned HoH was in all probability the worst of the season!
Scottie Salton – 2 strips of Bacon – he was not afraid to make the large transfer when he was HoH by not getting bullied and sticking true to his intention by nominating The Bros. However he additionally made a nasty transfer by voting out Swaggy whereas sporting his shirt. That transfer did blow up in his face and he was an early juror, then gained his approach again in, solely to go proper again to the jury home. That vote is what set him up as the straightforward patsy each time there was a hinky vote – and he received blamed for far more than he did. However you by no means fall for an additional man’s woman within the BB home… AND TELL HIM ABOUT IT!!!!
Haleigh Broucher – 1 strip of Bacon – regardless of appropriately predicting she would find yourself in a showmance, I used to be fairly positive she wouldn’t final lengthy. However she was an overplayer, and identical to the remainder of her alliance, made a horrible transfer (losing her Hacker energy) and ended up with a world of “what if’s” operating by way of her head. What if she by no means got here clear concerning the hacker win, what if she fought more durable to get Fessy to not put up Scottie, what if she gained a Veto any of the three weeks she was on the block, what if she didn’t have an HoH that despatched her ally house?
Sam Bledsoe – 5 strips of Bacon – identical to Rockstar – my preseason predictions have been 100% spot on. Not an overplayer – heck, she was barely even a participant. The shoulder to cry on – how many individuals did she consolation all season??? An emotional participant who did what the home needed (and by the home, I imply Tyler) and ended up mid juror. It’s been stated all over all season – we have now NEVER seen a participant like Sam earlier than. Her scorching/chilly change would flip once you least anticipated it. Her face when she got here again into the home after the Disguise & Search Veto was one in every of my favourite moments of the entire season.
Angela Rummans – 2 strips of Tofu – whereas I used to be proper about her making it to F6 – I used to be utterly flawed how she’d do it. I assumed she’d type an all-girls alliance, as an alternative, she was pulled into the facility alliance, and by no means actually referred to as the photographs – however she would take all of the photographs and had a lot blood on her palms (about as a lot as Bayleigh had in her mouth). Her late-blooming showmance with Tyler was not one of many extra memorable ones in BB historical past. Tangela is not any Brenchal, or Jeff/Jordan, or Jody, or perhaps a McCranda. Will they have the ability to take it subsequent degree outdoors the home? Maybe, however… if Tyler wins, and Angela stays with him, she may have some questioning if she’s doing it for the cash.
for the Ultimate three – I’ll put them within the order I feel they’ll end:
JC Mounduix – 2 strips of Tofu – I nailed it once I stated JC can be annoying to everybody out right here – I used to be simply incorrect considering he can be out right here annoying us. Behind the pervy, foul-mouthed, evil persona – there was truly a reasonably respectable recreation participant. He was an ideal manipulator of Fessy – giving Fes & his aspect of the home dangerous information that left them surprised each Thursday – they usually by no means actually caught on, till it was too late. Nevertheless – his nice concept to show the home on Angela & Kaycee occurred when it was too late and he didn’t have the numbers. That did get Brett out the home earlier than him – and he threw a wrench in L6/5/four/three/2 plans to make it to the Ultimate three collectively by profitable the random F4 HoH.
Tyler Crispen – four strips of Bacon – It turned out he didn’t decide up steam because the season went on – he began the sport on hyperdrive – and stored the pedal to the metallic all season. I assumed he’d be within the F4 – and he now stands a very good probability to win all of it. He might have made a pair dangerous strikes or had some horrible jury administration – however you can’t say this child didn’t play his coronary heart out all season lengthy. Sadly, his coronary heart could also be what prices him the sport.
Kaycee Clark – three strips of Tofu – this woman is poised to win the sport, and I had her as a pre-jury flop who might probably win A veto… nobody noticed her profitable 5 of 6 vetoes in a row, The query is – did she do sufficient to win. Her social recreation was on level, and regardless of the one minor flare-up with Rockstar – she by no means actually misplaced her cool. I don’t assume anybody can be mad if she wins (properly, besides the die-hard Tyler followers) – but when she does, it is going to be extra a few vote AGAINST Tyler than a vote FOR Kaycee. That is the brand new era of Big Brother – the place individuals are voting extra private and Kaycee is aware of this – which is why she all the time stayed tight with individuals earlier than not utilizing her Vetoes on them, after which voting them out.
