Good afternoon, everyone!
It’s another eviction day in the Celebrity Big Brother house which is possibly bad news for Ryan unless he pulls off a miracle tonight.
Also, can you believe there are only 16 days left in the season?? It’s incredible how fast the Celebrity seasons go. Wednesday’s episode will also be more than half the CBS episodes this season. How are you liking the season so far? I’m torn. I think casting did a surprisingly good job at picking players both willing to play but also willing to spend a month inside the house (*cough* Metta, Keshia). I know people think Mooch was a quitter, but I actually believe the twist. I don’t think he left the house on Saturday or Sunday and was in Switzerland a few days later without it being pre-arranged. I’m firmly in the camp that his twist was planned and not BB scrambling to cover up him quitting. It also explains why they had 12 cast members this season versus 11 last year. It was all planned.
Mooch was a big name and they wanted him in for the publicity. He likely told them it would be impossible due to Davos conference so they just paid him a bunch to be in for a few days. He earns the headlines and he’s off to Switzerland.
As far as what’s going on with the players still IN the house, as I mentioned above, Ryan is in trouble if he or Joey doesn’t win the PoV – which I assume will be played live on tonight’s episode. If anyone but those two people win, Dina will likely come off the block and Ryan replaced and voted out. Tom and Kato took out Jonathan because he was a strong player so it’s no surprise they’d rather Ryan go than Dina or Tamar. However, if the plan fails and the noms remain, Tamar will likely be the one out the door.
The TicKLE alliance (yup, I’m still trying to make it happen – Mean Girls reference) is still together but I noticed Kato getting a bit close with Dina last night. She hung around him and Tom while they played pool and Kato really seemed to enjoy her company. I think he is now regretting even putting her in the situation and she’ll be the third wheel of the Tom and Kato alliance if and when the thing with Lolo and Natalie fall apart (let’s be real, it will). I can see Kato, Tom, and Dina growing closer while the two girls get closer to Ricky and it becomes a 3 on 3. Three people generally out of shape and almost all over 50 (Tom is 47) versus three people who have made careers out of being physically in top shape. Seems even!
And yes, that is my prediction for the final 6.
The live episode is on tonight at 8 est, so I’ll have a new thread up. They are not promoting the HoH competition to be on the feeds, so either it will be a quick one that takes place live or one that’s blocked out for a few hours after the show. Regardless, at least they’re not promising us something and not delivering.
See you tonight!
