Big Brother 23- Thursday Recap for 8/26/21

Never Miss A Post Update:


Good Friday morning BB Junkies! I almost missed last nights live show and I would’ve been so annoyed if I had. Sometimes, I have to watch the other 2 shows the next day, depending on what’s going on lately but never the Thursday episode.  We had unexpected company at the house but I was able to get rid of them before the show aired. (Yeah me!)


My husband just can’t say no to anyone and someone selling security systems knocked on the door yesterday evening. Short version: HE invited them in, told them they needed to talk to ME, (he was busy) I wasn’t gonna let that happen, politely excused myself, said I was dealing with a work issue (lie) and left him there to deal with it.  I wasn’t about to be volunteered to sit through some presentation for something I didn’t want just to avoid saying no.  Eventually, I did have to come back upstairs when I could hear he was about to purchase the damn thing! Lol

Big D was VERY excited Byonce was the music choice in this weeks hoh basket. Dude went airborne!

Anyway, back to the Thursday show… From what I read last night, there were some confused viewers so I want to clear up the voting situation. Yes, Hannah and Kyland voted to keep DX. Yes, Tiffany was the only person trying to keep him in the house.  She was helping DX with his campaign in the hopes he could persuade enough people in the Cook Out to keep him. That didn’t happen and it was decided by the majority of the 6 that DX would be evicted. They knew in advance Hannah and Kyland would be giving him sympathy votes and that’s all they were. Neither of them would have done it if they thought it could flip it and have DX stay. Why would Tiffany vote to keep him and go against Claire when she knew Claire would be staying in the house?


As usual, the show didn’t do a good job of explaining it. (I AM curious if Claire will find out how hard Tiffany was trying to keep DX over her)

Tiffany still tried to make Ky feel bad for evicting DX earlier on Thursday….
She said she was kidding (she wasn’t) and they hugged….after she called him a m****r f****r and a p***y.  Good times!

What’s up with Julie this year too?  I crack up every Thursday over the shit that comes out of her mouth!  It made sense when she asked to call Derek F, Big D but then she wanted to call Britini, Bri-ti-ti.  wtf?  Now she wants to call Derek X, Baby D. That’s not exactly a nickname DX wanted, I think it’s one he just tolerated. He’s never asked to be called that the way Derek F asked to be called Big D AND the hg’s don’t usually say it to DX.  It’s something they say when they’re referring to him.


The paint speckled sweatshirt that DX wears alot has been backordered now on Abercrombie & Fitch’s website because so many people having been trying to order it. Lol (He left it there for Hannah…I know this is the exciting stuff that has you on the edge of your seats!) He left things for Tiffany and Claire too.

While I’m at it, this was trending last night at #2:


It was ridiculous when Julie made sure to tell the viewers their faves weren’t leaving because of the twist.  Of course, that’s not true and when do they ever feel the need to say something like that? It’s when they know their twist failed and actually backfired. (Aaaarrrggg, I just fucked up the font size again, sorry!)


I really liked the idea of a punishment that involved being separated from everyone until the moment they voted. (See, twists don’t work but punishments are sometimes cool)  This one didn’t really make a difference but it could have in a different situation. That’s what I liked about it. Of course, I also liked seeing Lucius strut his stuff. I’ll admit, the humor of it was probably lost on the tv audience because they didn’t have a reference for it.

The distance Xavier had to walk took away from it too but if you’d seen a clip of this already and the walk had been shorter, I think it would’ve hit. (Maybe not, maybe I just like Lucious)

If this supposed triple happens again this season, we’ll be let down by it again.  It was stupid last year and it will be again. An hours worth of excitement isn’t worth giving up a week of gameplay at an important time in the season.  We were so sick of the steamroll last year and unlike this year, that actually WAS a steamroll.  We sat patiently, waiting for the week Cody had to choose between Danielle and Nicole. Did we get our week of drama? Nope. Danielle was out before we had time to blink.  It looks like they’ll have this triple just when the Cook Out is starting to go after each other. Doubles barely work and Triples NEVER work. Oh well…on to other things.

We have a new HOH and it’s…..Tiffany! (Yeah!!!) I always say I don’t care who wins and I still don’t.  It doesn’t mean I don’t have my favorites and it’s no secret, Tiffany is definitely one of them.


I thought Hannah was going to win it because with Tiffany, Alyssa and Hannah as the last 3, I was expecting it to go to a tiebreaker. Those are usually math and I thought Hannah would have the edge. I was also wondering if Ky threw it or just answered wrong.  He was planning on throwing it but I didn’t think he’d do it before Alyssa was out.

Hannah and Alyssa both discussed knowing the answer to the last question but during the comp, they misinterpreted the question and that’s what caused them both to get it wrong. It’s probably true because Tiffany thanked Hannah and said the information Hannah gave her was the only reason she won it.  I know Hannah was anxious for a win but she obviously didn’t mind Tiffany getting it. Alyssa on the other hand, was pretty bummed.

I guess Alyssa wants to win one that’s actually a win. In her defense, she does think Hannah played for the roulette power so she doesn’t know she didn’t have any competition. Big D tried to tell her Hannah didnt play but she argued with him about it. (There’s no way she could admit that might have happened because she made too big a deal over winning)

Ok, I’m taking forever to get to the recap.  This isn’t a Kyland HOH so last night wasn’t nearly as long and drawn out. (even tho he tried to make it that way) Besides that, Tiffany already knows what she’s doing and it’s pretty straightforward. It leaves me with less game talk to actually recap. Here’s my summary of the talk from last night:

  • All girl celebration in the storage room….minus SB and Alyssa. (All girl, not ALL the girls)
  • Tiffany got a squatty potty in her hoh basket. (Ok, maybe that’s not exactly game related but it could be. Bowel issues could make a person cranky!)
  • Tiffany held her one on ones and Ky tried to make it one of his power convo sessions. There wasn’t a reason for it because they already know what the goal is for the week.
  • Tiffany was trying to hug him bye just to get him out the door.
  • When it was Xaviers turn, she basically said SB’s the target, I may have to put up Ky to get it done. X was like “cool.” They said ‘see ya’ and it was over. (Ky and X have such different conversation styles. Lol)
  • Big D played up to people he thought he’d go otb. (He’s genuinely a little nervous tho but he knows the target is SB)
  • SB threw EVERYONE she could think of under the bus trying to stay off the block. Tiffany let her know it would probably be her going up.
  • Later, Tiffany told Hannah that SB was pretty good because she almost had her convinced Alyssa should be the target first.  (I still think maybe Alyssa SHOULD be the target first) She and Hannah joked about needing to make sure Alyssa wasn’t dead because of how hard SB threw her under the bus.
  • Ky, X and Big D were already talking about next weeks hoh.  X said he was going to try to win it so he could take out Claire. Ky reminded him if he won it and Claire won veto, he’d be the one to have to put up Alyssa. X kind of said ‘oh, yeah’ but he did NOT say ‘in that case, I don’t want to win.’ Lol
  • There was a little talk from Tiffany saying SB probably wrote her own hoh letter. (Lol, Tiffany stop!! Shelly is real!)
  • Ky plans on acting mad when he goes otb but it will be an act so don’t get excited if he does a good job. There won’t be a Cook Out war just yet.
  • Tiffany, Hannah and Claire all slept up in the hoh room.

Tiffany should be putting Sarah Beth and Kyland on the block with SB as the target. If SB wins a veto this week, I’d imagine the target will be Alyssa.  We don’t have any idea how the coin of destiny will change things but hopefully (my opinion) it won’t do too much. With the announcement that the house guests were given random envelopes with money, Big D and Hannah are certain to be eligible to play. Alyssa and Xavier for sure will not. (talk about them wanting to just get a power over with or at least not be another flop, I wonder who came up with the idea of just randomly handing out envelopes, riveting stuff)

Yesterday, I said I was going to give my votes to Hannah but it was only because she had the best chance to play against Big D and I didn’t want him to win it. Once Tiffany became the HOH, I gave my votes to Claire. It’s not like she’s going to do anything against Tiffany so if she wins it, it could be as if there is no twist this week.


SB is a good target for Tiffany but the reason I think Alyssa could be a better one is because of X.  I already think he’s the front runner for right now to win the season. He’s also the most reluctant to let his side person go and for that reason, I think she should go first. Check back later for Steve’s updates and….

Have a great weekend!

  1. I would be highly embarrassed to receive a squatty potty. I gifted Claire all my votes because while it will probably not change anything there’s always the slim to none change she’ll have a lightbulb moment and put up another member of the cookout in place of Sarah Beth. I’m good with SB going I just hate to see the cookout keep having a clean sweep. And I’m going to guess maybe SB is regretting pushing to get Derek x out now.

  2. Hey! I follow along but don’t post much, only a few times in years past. Sadly, I’m not watching live feeds this year. I thought I liked Sarah Beth… haha… but maybe not? Why is everyone so annoyed with her? Is it stuff they don’t show on the air? And man, did she look upset, nervous and stressed last night! Especially when DX was making his speech. What did he say to Alyssa on the way out? Is she who he was referring to when he said someone was playing a “Nicole F game”?

    With DX gone I’m pulling for Tiffany for the final win.

    1. Some dont like SB because she went after DX. Some dont like she let Ky run her hoh and change her mind over who to target. Yes the Nicole F thing was towards her. (Tiff and Hannah wanted him to say it)

  3. According to Spoilers early this am the three top money spots were Big D,Hannah and Claire. Tiffinay currently has $75 so she will need $175 more to play. Azah has $100 so she needs $150 more. Sarah Beth and Ky each have $50…Alyssa and Xavier. $0

      1. He put his hands over his face and threw his head back.He ,of course wonders who is in the group.He thinks it’s X,Ky,Alyssa,Tiff and Big D.

  4. Thanks, Mel!! Maybe I’m wrong, but I think that Tiff needs to keep a close eye on Hannah. I know she’s been crying over DX leaving, and she did vote to keep him, but I think she’ll turn on her to go to the end with the boys. I also wish they would have shown goodbye messages for DX last night. Either Alyssa or SB can go this week, but preferably SB just because she is soooooo annoying. I agree, Mel, triple evictions suck. Feels like I have whiplash at the end of the show.

    1. Interesting. Might be interesting to review her conversations. Has she been quietly encouraging anyones paranoia? She has proven to be very intelligent.
      Maybe we all need to keep an eye on Hannah.

  5. Anybody else notice Julie’s black top/pants were two different black colors?! Why is it every night the houseguests have a discussion about which bed they are sleeping in? I would have MY BED and no one else is putting their unwashed self on it or in it. What if the Coin of Destiny actually let you keep three people safe from the Block? But would that make a difference? I also saw that Baby D asked Alyssa and Ky to look after Hannah. What was that about? I feel like I missed something there. Lots of questions this morning…..

    • Mel you give the best recaps ever‼️I wait anxiously every morning, waiting to hear your thoughts, and you never disappoint ‼️Thanks again for all you do.
  6. Thank you for the update, SB thinks she’s so special, America thinks not. In my neck of the woods when people come to your door to sell something it’s almost always a scam or rip off.
