From Blindsides to Betrayals … Big Brother is Back!


Things are getting interesting in the ‘Big Brother house’ as alliances are shifting. Last Sunday, the show starts with a flashback to Kaitlyn’s HOH nomination ceremony where she put Winston and Scottie on the block… with the goal to backdoor Swaggy C.   In the episode, we see Kaitlyn’s original alliance feeling comfortable as the opposing side is ecstatic for a plan that could potentially betray the HOH’s current allies.

As the show continues, BB19’s Jessica and Cody return to the ‘Big Brother’ house to host the dating-app themed competition (which makes total sense considering the two met on last year’s season and just announced that they are engaged to each other). With the stakes being so high, this PoV competition is an important one for Kaitlyn.  Throughout the episode, we see her planting subtle seeds of her plan to blindside Swaggy C.  We finally get to the competition! Kaitlyn, Scottie, Winston, Tyler, Faysal, and Rachel are the selected houseguests.  The six battled it out, but it was Tyler who took home the Golden Power of Veto ensuring that the plan to backdoor Swaggy may become a reality.

Leading up to the ceremony, Kaitlyn is seen hinting to her allies that she is going to make bold moves, but won’t specify exactly what they are. This causes her original side to see red flags and cause fear amongst them. Haleigh, who has been Kaitlyn’s closest ally since day one, picked up on her vibe and asked if Swaggy would be the replacement. Haleigh then confronts close ally Rockstar about the plan. She promises to keep it a secret, but goes on to inform Swaggy C and Faysal that she has a bad feeling about the upcoming ceremony. It wasn’t until five minutes before that Kaitlyn told Faysal, (Swaggy C’s best friend in the house), that she was planning on nominating him. She asks for a hug immediately after telling him which he simply declines.

As the Power of Veto ceremony is going down, Faysal whispers to Swaggy that she is planning on betraying their alliance to put him up.  The show then cuts to Kaitlyn, who is fighting back tears, to use the veto on Scottie and replace him with Swaggy C.  The camera pans to each member of her original alliance, all showing a mixed bag of reactions from anger, confusion, and shock. We’ve got the GIF’s to prove it…




Thursday finally rolls around, and soon we would find out who would be the second person to be evicted from the Big Brother house.  As Kaitlyn continues to ensure that the backdoor plan is in effect, Swaggy C is seen trying to secure last minute votes from the other houseguests.  Sam even mentions that she is considering using her ‘special power’ she received on Swaggy, which would give him the chance to return to the game if evicted.  However, she decided not to use it when it came time to vote.  After a hectic week, Swaggy C was unsuccessful in saving himself and was evicted 8-4. It was no surprise that the four votes to save him were his only allies left in the game: Bayleigh, Rockstar, Haleigh and Fessy.

Immediately after Swaggy C’s eviction, it was time for another HOH competition … a true or false-based game that would crown a new leader.  Eventually, it came down to a tie-breaker question between Scottie and Rachel, where Scottie ended up winning the week’s most powerful title. Things will get interesting this week as Scottie has laid low, and played neutral, among the house.  Will he continue to follow past evictions and go after the side with Faysal, Bayleigh, Rockstar, and Angie? Or, will he decide to take a hit at “Level 6”, an alliance consisting of Tyler, Brett, Winston, Rachel, Amanda, and Kaycee? Let us know what you think, and the two he should put up for eviction in the comments below!

For those of you who need to catch up, here’s what’s happened thus far …

Last week we watched as 16 new houseguests entered the house that soon would divide into two sides with a few “floaters” mixed in between.  As alliances formed, and relationships were built, little did the houseguests know an ‘upset’ would soon take place the following week … but we’ll dive into that shortly. As host Julie Chen welcomed everyone, she presented them with this year’s theme called “Big Brother Technology”, which reflects today’s advancement in all things technological with an emphasis on social media. The viewers get a chance to be part of the game by voting for their favorites “trending houseguest” which will rank the houseguest collectively. The top” trending houseguest” of the week will get to choose an App from the BB App Store that gives them an opportunity to help their game, while the least trending houseguest gets the complete opposite, otherwise known as the “Crap App.”

In the season’s first episode, the house was introduced to their first competition of the season … a three-part safety competition that split up the 16 members into four groups, which eventually lead to one winner.  Whoever won the competition was able to save two of the four groups from being nominated, while still giving the other two groups a possibility to be put on the block. After it was over, “Swaggy C” was the winner who naturally saved his own group consisting of himself, Brett, Rachel, and Angie. The second group he saved was Scottie, Kaycee, Haleigh, and Faysal.


In the second episode, we watched as Tyler took the ‘Head of Household’ power, which gave him the chance to nominate two houseguests for eviction. We also found out that early fan-favorite Sam was the ‘top-trending houseguest’ of the week giving her a power that would allow her a chance to return to the game in case she was evicted.  This power will expire after four weeks.  Faysal, unfortunately, was the least ‘trending houseguest’ of the week and had picked the “Crap App” that gave him an appetite for destruction – literally!  Throughout the remainder of the week, a “Hamazon Delivery” would be sent to the house that he would be forced to eat as soon as arrived. By the looks of it, the ham they delivered didn’t satisfy his taste buds, but rather, repulsed them. By the end of the episode, Tyler decided to play it safe and nominated Sam and Steve.

The third episode is when the game really starts to get interesting. We learn of the alliances, the targets, and the possible blindsides. Sam is the overall target of that week, but HOH Tyler had his own plan in mind – especially after finding out nominee Sam had a power that he thought could help his game.  Tensions rose as houseguests talked about who the replacement nominee would be if the Power of Veto were to be used.  Faysal ended up winning the POV competition, and ultimately decided not to use it.  The episode came to an end with Steve radiating confidence, Sam feeling helpless, and Tyler anxiously ready to shake the house with a blindside.


We finally get to the first live eviction of the season, which usually is the most exciting because it is “live” so you never know what may change in the house (because the CBS feeds usually cut a few hours before the episode airs). The episode highlights lots of game-talk as well as a possible flip that could rock the house. Sam had been the target the whole week, but between all the secret alliances and convos, Steve was evicted in a 7-6 vote.  What was thought to be a unanimous vote ended up to be a wake-up call for half the house showing lines have been drawn. With Swaggy C’s side having the numbers to secure Steve’s safety, how did he go?  Life coach Kailtyn was the one who turned on her alliance. She is planning on keeping that a secret for as long as she can even though a few players know it was her.  It was a risk she took, especially with the possibility that the allies she turned on could find out she was the one who betrayed them.  Luckily for Kaitlyn, she’s guaranteed another week, because at the end of the episode she dominated the competition giving her the ‘Head of Household’, and the rest is history …  (filed by Jake Updegraff – Big Brother Correspondent)
