Last night during the live show, Julie introduced the latest twist to the season, and I’m confused by it. The havenot room was turned into an empty room with a button, and the house was not told what happens when you hit the button except for vague clues around the room (game written backwards on the wall). What happens is that the week will progress as normal, but on Wednesday night (the next live show), Julie will say hi to the house and then tell them this entire week was for nothing.
Frankie (who won HoH) will be stripped of his title, the nominees will be safe and they will play for a brand new HoH. Assuming they pushed the little gold button in that room.
Before the HoH competition, they were allowed into the room but the button was covered in the plastic box. This gave them a little time to think about what it could mean, and seemed apprehensive about pushing it. The feeds went down for the competition, and as soon as they were up, the house ran into the room again to find the button uncovered and available to push (You can watch this at 10:23 if you’d like). After about a minute of discussion, they circled around the button and all pressed it at once (for fear of something like the person pressing gets booted – or rewarded). The TV screen in the room popped up a countdown clock that ended at 5pm Wed (the time of the live show).
So that’s it… this week is nothing. I think this twist would have been extremely cool about 3 weeks ago, but with the final 5 the way it is, it doesn’t really seem to matter much. The only way this twist becomes exciting is if there becomes a rift in the house leading up to Wednesday night. Judging from the course of the season, however, what really will happen is Victoria will be on the block with someone. Everyone will be expecting Victoria to go home and nothing will change. Frankie will probably end up winning HoH again, put up the same nominees and the (likely) boring week will just be repeated.
The funny part is, Victoria shouldn’t be going home. The person sitting next to her will probably be in jeopardy, but the big question will be whether or not they’ll realize it. Christine knew it during the double eviction. If Caleb is sitting there next to Victoria, will he be smart enough to realize he’s not safe? If so, this twist could turn out fun with that person literally playing for their Big Brother life when they’re given a second chance on Wednesday night. However, if they think they’re safe, well.. they probably deserve to go home anyway.
Nominations are today, they’re not going to matter at all. Veto competition will be tomorrow, that won’t matter as well. The only semi-important thing will happen during the PoV meeting and that is to see who the house puts up next to Victoria. Then it will be a guessing game whether or not they figure everything out.
Live thread in a little bit! Sorry such a weird recap of last night, I am just not sure what to think of all this!
