Good morning all! The house was a little bit slower yesterday. Before I get into it, thank you so much Pamela! Your donation was very kind and generous.
There was still game talk yesterday (of course, some of these players don’t have an off switch!) but not nearly as much. Tiffany, for example, told us her brain is overworked. She said she’s always strategizing and said when she isn’t, she’s doing math in her head about the game. She said her brain is tired. (Hang in there Tiff, I appreciate you and your brain)
Tiffany continued to increase the target on Sarah Beth. I want to point out the way she does this because it’s more impressive than they way we see some people try to paint targets on others. She has a way of telling people info that feels more like info sharing. I think it’s because she has such good personal relationships with the others. When you hear people repeat the things she’s said, you don’t often hear them say “Tiffany told me…” They repeat this info as if it’s their own thought. It causes people to beleive the info more easily and it keeps her from looking like she’s spreading rumors.
I think this also contributes to the vote each week. (so far) There’s a difference in a vote being unanimous because people “want to vote with the house” and a unanimous vote. Normally when we see this, it’s because players don’t want to make themselves a target or they feel it’s too early to stick their neck out for someone else so they just vote with the house. That’s not what’s happening this year and it makes it more fun to watch. They arn’t “voting with the house” but instead, they’re being convinced they want that person out too. How many people had Sarah Beth way down on their list of targets just a few days ago? She hasn’t risen to the top because players want to “vote with the house.” They’ve been convinced she needs to go. (After Whitney leaves, I’m expecting this to change anyway)
I really like Sarah Beth and as much as I don’t want to risk Hannah, I’d be interested in a SB hoh. I’d like to see that other side of SB again, the side that yells at production and flips them off. I’d like to see how Tiffany can operate when she puts in a ton of work but things arn’t going her way. I also think I’d like to see Tiffany and Kyland have a pissing contest over who to target. I admit, my wish list is all over the place because I’d also like to see a Derek X hoh with possibly a Christian/Alyssa nomination. Hannah as hoh could be alot of fun since she’s so cut throat and blunt. Even Big D could be fun because who knows what the hell he’d do? I bet Britini would give us an amazing hoh week! She’d probably piss me off with her noms but it could be a fun hohitis week! (She’d go full BB20 Sam on us) Speaking of Britini, she messed up the chess board for a game that Derek X and Kyland were in the middle of and this was Kyland spotting her on the camera. He yelled and took off running, trying to catch her before she demolished it. He failed. Lol (sorry its blurry but he was moving fast)
Christian didn’t use the veto and no one was surprised…not even Whitney. She’s not having a good week. She also wanted a spa day and got stuck with a mock trial instead. (After Thursday, she can have more time for spa days)
Christian and Alyssa went over their list of targets. They are Azha, Hannah, Britini and Derek X. (Claire and Tiffany’s fake F4 with those two looks to be paying off since they weren’t on the list) It also sounds like the other F4 Alyssa suggested with Derek X and Hannah….not so much.
Hannah and Tiffany are growing their trust with each other. When Tiffany first reeled in Derek X, she wasn’t feeling Hannah so much. (She didn’t want Derek X to have an option other than her imo) but once Hannah began opening up to her, that changed. Tiffany even said she may want a F2 with Hannah. She’s also told us that the game changes so her plans may change too.
Yeah, I know, this recap is full of Tiffany but she’s one of the people who plays the game nonstop plus she’s a bad ass so I can’t help it.
Derek X is another one who doesn’t turn it off a whole lot. He had a good talk with Kyland and they discussed their F2. Derek questioned Kyland as to why Hannah was such a big target to Sarah Beth. Kyland said that she sees how many people are close to Hannah, especially her team. She feels like if someone is that close to her team while she isn’t close to that person, they’re probably a threat to her game. (true) They also talked about how Hannah has said if she won hoh, she may have to use SB as a pawn. (also true) Kyland also said he doesn’t understand why Tiffany keeps mentioning Britini as a target. He doesn’t see her as a threat.
Production asked Derek F to the DR, called him “Big D” and the hg’s noticed. If they’re going with it then I am too. (Its less letters to type so win, win) Big D and Azha talked a bit of game in the HN room. It mostly consisted of Azha saying she wanted someone from the Kings to go next but didn’t know if she’d throw the next hoh and admitted she didn’t want to do it herself. She didn’t get why no one has taken any of them out yet. Big D said it’s because their team has the best player on it. (Haha) He told Azha that she wouldn’t be the first one out if the hoh was the wall comp. He said that would probably be him. Big D talked alot about their first meal after HN’s were over. (HN’s are kicking his ass ya’ll)
Claire spoke to Derek X about Kyland. She said he has a better memory than he pretends and while practicing days, she knows he intentionally tries to give her the wrong dates. (She’s mentioned this before) Claire has been working on DX for awhile but doesn’t know that like Tiffany, DX also has a F2 with Kyland. Claire talked a little game with Alyssa too and tried to get some info on Xavier. Alyssa didn’t give up much or she simply doesn’t know much. (Everyone Claire would like to build something with has already been taken by Tiffany. I’d mentioned before that Claire holding back socially the first couple weeks could get her in trouble and unfortunately, it looks like that’s what’s happening) I really like Claire and hope she finds a way to wedge herself in there and stick around. I’d be surprised if she does well in the endurance comp if it’s the wall (because she’s so tall) but she’s proven herself to be good in comps. When it’s ‘her time to go,’ I could see her comp ability being the way she could mess up other peoples plans to get rid of her. Relying on a comp win isn’t the best way to maneuver thru the end game though.
They also played a game yesterday that involved a mock trial. People were assigned different roles and they got pretty into it.
Tiffany told Azha she only liked the feeds when they were talking game. Azha said she’d turn them off if she had to watch a fake trial and said she did turn them off last year when they played charades. (Ok, this may have been goofy but it was WAY more entertaining than charades)
Wow! I just figured out why my font size changed just now and another time last week. When I put a caption with a pic, it gets messed up if I don’t leave enough space between that and where I pick back up with a normal paragraph. This probably doesn’t matter to any of you. I just didn’t want you to think I was putting so much importance on the way Azha and Tiffany watch live feeds and intentionally enlarged the font. (I still don’t know how to fix it but hey… finding the source of the problem is half the battle, right?)
Have a great Tuesday!
