Good afternoon, Junkies!
Sorry for the late start. I had a meeting I needed to attend this afternoon which I couldn’t put off. But I’m here and catching up. Before I begin though, I’ve been working on my BB23 cheat sheet page which you can access at the menu at the top of the posts. I like that page and plan to keep adding to it as the season progresses. Maybe figure out how to make an entire wiki thing going on for all the seasons but that’s shit down the line.
Oh, and I also put the link to the live feeds up in that same menu and in the header. Join them if you want, don’t if you don’t. I don’t care. But the link is there mostly for quick access. I do get a commission if you join through me but I really don’t care if you join through someone else. I’m not your mom!
Inside the house this afternoon, there were a lot of whispers going on. Xavier and Kyland had a lot of the talking and Tiffany got involved as well with some add-on people coming and going through in their 2 cents. A summary of how it went is that most are planning on Whitney being next, but Tiffany wants her to hang around a little longer. Hannah may be used as a pawn against Whitney but Sarah kind of painted a picture of how it may be a good time to get Hannah out considering how much of a threat she is.
The issue with all that is Hannah is an honorary member of the Cookout and they all want to make it to the jury. There is no real final 6 deal with them, but their goal is to all make the jury and if Hannah goes out before the jury, that defeats their plan. Brent is still walking around thinking he’s safe which is always entertaining to see, but I’m probably going to talk less of him as the week progresses unless he actually figures out he’s not safe. While I like blindsides, I’m not a huge fan of kicking someone while they’re down and Brent is going to be feeling real down when he’s talking with Julie.
Let’s get to the updates:
- 3:00 pm – Big D has been in the HoH room chatting with Xavier
- D says Whitney approached him and said ‘is it true you’re trying to put me and DX on the block’. He continues ‘if she said her with Hannah or something, I’d think you all leaked’
- Big D denies Whitney’s suggestion
- He says he swore on his grandfather’s grave and X tells him never to do that again (swear on something like that)
- X says ‘the longer we keep Hannah around, that’s a guaranteed vote in jury’. But they are willing to cut her if she’s causing too much crap
- 3:30 pm – Britini and Tiffany are in the bedroom talking
- They say a King has to go home soon. Britini says the only one she’d want to keep would be SB (Sarah)
- Tiffany asks about the duo (Christian/Alyssa)
- They realize you need to put up Christian and Alyssa together so one can’t save the other via veto
- After some talking, they start singing and dancing. Hell to the no. Switch feeds
- 3:45 pm – In the kitchen, Big D, X, and Whitney talk about the house. D says he hates there are so many good looking men in the house who aren’t homophobic. He’s obviously kidding meaning it would be easier to not crush on them if they were homophobic but all these guys are so fluid and relaxing about it.
- Oh no. Tiffany and Britini have left the room and they are going to try and push their dances on the rest of the house. It’s spreading. Noooooo.
- Please no.
- Fortunately, they took a break with the dance and are talking game again. Britini thinking Christian versus Xavier
- Tiffany points out that those two on the block greatly increases the chance of 4 girls playing against them in the veto. They’d much rather face off against Alyssa than Xavier (Tiffany mostly just steering her away from X)
- They keep talking about who to eliminate between X, Christian, and Alyssa. It’s a big debate going back and forth with Tiffany steering the conversation away from X
- 5:45 pm – Alyssa outside playing pool with Brit while X hanging with Azah doing some cuddling and talking
- X talking about how his team will likely be the target next week
- Once again it’s a feeds up and down type of day
- 6:20 pm – Brent corners Hannah talking game again. He says if he goes home, the whole house will be against those three (the remainder of his team)
- Dinner time in the house as people are called in for their covid tests
- 8:15 pm – House still around the kitchen. It’s camera time so Claire has the camera tonight
- Kitchen getting d-i-r-t-y and I’m not talking about the kind that attracts ants.
- Outside, Hannah, Sarah, and Claire are with the camera. Hannah is talking in a British accent which is surprisingly good
- Claire asks Azah what her favorite memory of Claire is and Azah says ‘I don’t have one’ lol. Again, she’s kidding
- I feel like I have to note these guys are kidding with their sarcasm but they lay it on thick and it doesn’t come out very well on type form
On a side note – If you’re going to come here to bitch about the racial issues of the season, I have a solution on how to fix your problem:
- Close your browser
- Don’t watch Big Brother
A little rant time – I’m tired of seeing comments with massive racist undertones because people are upset at the all-black alliance. “omg, if the shoe were on the other foot” Bro, the shoe has been on the other foot for the entire show. Check out this list:

And before people say dumb follow-ups like “That’s an unfair list. Chill Town was two friends who happened to be white derrrr, derrrr, derrr” save it. The point is, this is literally the second all-black alliance on the show and the other was just a pair of friends as well – just like Chill Town. And yes, people also had a problem with that alliance as well. And we need to be really clear about this, many of those alliances listed went out of their way to exclude the minorities on their seasons. They weren’t open about being an ‘all-white’ alliance, but it was pretty clear that’s what they were. Does anyone really believe David or Ovi ever had a chance of joining the Six Shooters?
Did anyone think Brett and Winston were ever going to team up with Swaggy and Fessy?
I’d try to give more examples but there haven’t been very many seasons where black males have lastest long enough in the house to even be invited.
Here are the results from the black males who have tried to play this game since I’ve started blogging:
- 13 – Keith (out first)
- 14 – N/A
- 15 – Howard (5th week. Pre-jury. Plus had to deal with Aaryn)
- 16 – Devin (3rd week. Pre-jury)
- 17 – N/A
- 18 – Jozea (2nd out, 1st person voted out)
- 19 – Ramses (4th voted out. 3rd person was also Dominique), Josh (won)
- 20 – Swaggy (2nd out)
- 21 – David (1st out)
So out of that entire list, you have a bunch of pre-jury people and Josh who is arguably the most disliked winner until Jackson. So let’s just cut back on the ‘omg an all-black alliance. That’s so unfair!!’ crap. You know what’s unfair? Putting 1 in the house per season and wish them good luck joining ‘frat bros’ who seem to bond on like day 1. And what’s going to be unfair moving forward is the reason the cookout is so determined. That is because (as Big D said it) this is literally the only chance they have to do this. In future seasons, people are going to automatically assume there are more all-black alliances and try to split them up early. And he’s 100% right. They won’t be open about their intentions, but it doesn’t mean the intentions won’t exist.
I know that’s a lot of venting to drop but I’m just so sick of the crying. Shut up and either enjoy this phenomenal cast with some of the most likable people to play this game or turn off your TV and cry in the corner.
Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk
Oh, and feeds keep dropping tonight so it’s hard to blog about stuff anyway
- 11:30 pm – The house just finished playing mafia or among us. I don’t know. Pretty funny though and I wish I had friends to play that with
- Brent talking with his team about the different scenarios of votes this week. Like if it’s 6 votes then…. 5 votes then… bro. I can’t wait until Thursday
- 11:50 pm – Britini begins crying again about being nominated
