Big Brother All-Stars Review: The Seventh Eviction (22×22)

Big Brother All-Stars/ CBS

Published

on


Misreads and miscommunication continue to plague the house, and it all culminates in tonight’s latest eviction, where either Da’Vonne or Kevin will be shown the door, and join Ian in the jury house.

At the Veto meeting, Tyler decided not to use the power, leaving Memphis’ nominees the same. Da’Vonne figured that this would happen, but felt very optimistic that Dani and Nicole could work with her to gather the four votes needed to evict Kevin. The frequent thing that caused Da’Vonne stress was confirming whether or not Nicole voted to evict Tyler or Ian in the previous week. Nicole lies to her face saying she voted to evict Tyler (she didn’t), but said quietly that she will tell Day the truth, but has to find the right moment to do so.

Head of Household Memphis decides to shift his focus onto the next phase of the game, and created two sub-alliances within the Committee. He lets Enzo know that he is going to form two final 3 deals, but have Enzo in both, so that his final 2 deal is with Enzo. That way if the Committee crumbles, he has people to back him up. Enzo takes this deal, thinking that he can beat Memphis in the final 2 should they get that far, and decides to work with Memphis. The first group has Memphis, Enzo, and Cody, and the other has Memphis, Enzo, and Christmas. Memphis calls both alliances “The Wise Guys.” All I have to say is that even though Memphis should not win this game, this is pretty smart. He has a feeling that the Committee is falling apart, so finding smaller groups to take to the end could help him. I hope it all falls in his face, because that jerk (putting it lightly) needs to go now.

Dani believes that keeping Da’Vonne is what’s best for her game, so she starts going around trying to get the votes. Christmas sees right through the campaign, and believes that Dani, Nicole, and Day are working together to destroy the Committee from the inside. She then goes to David and lets him know that she knows that David voted out Tyler, and that Nicole is lying to Day, so that Day can target him, and the only way to stop it is to send her out. David is happy that someone finally agrees with him, since his vote was seen as a lie throughout the entire week. Now David wants to work with Christmas which is dumb, because Christmas is a horrible player, and she’ll vote him out without losing any sleep.

Before the vote, Da’Vonne gave a brilliant speech about how no Black women has ever won this game, except for Tamar Braxton, who won the celebrity version of Big Brother a few years back. She declared that she wants to continue to fight to be the first African-American woman to win the show and credits previous HouseGuests Cassandra (season 1), and Danielle Reyes (season 2), as some of the greatest influences to her, and why she loves the game she’s played three times. Kevin had to keep his speech short for time, but had a similar speech, saying that companies and corporations need to do more than a Zoom representation and diversity training, and start practicing what they preach. Both speeches were incredible, and I’m glad that these two took the opportunity of this platform to spark conversations in a world that is much bigger than the house.

Powerful speeches aside, Da’Vonne was evicted from the house by a 5-2 vote. Dani and Nicole were the two votes for Kevin. After Nicole almost tore Day’s earring out while giving her a hug goodbye, she put on her mask and joined Julie outside. When Julie asked how she was feeling, Day said that she was relieved because she was sick of those people. My reaction to that: me too, Day. Me too. When Julie showed the goodbye messages, Nicole revealed that she is a part of a big alliance, and that she voted to evict Ian to protect the alliance. In that moment, Da’Vonne lost all respect for Nicole, saying that if she had just told the truth from the get-go so she didn’t have to attack David, she would’ve been okay with the decision. She now heads off to join Ian in the jury house, where they will wait the next evictee.

Before the episode ended, Julie revealed not one, but two large twists coming for the week. As teased, a BB legend is moving in next door, and that legend was revealed to be Dr. Will Kirby, the winner of season 2, and one of the first villains to play the game. He said he’s living next door, and will be tempting the HouseGuests with power and prizes, and it’ll be up to them to decide what they want. I’m very excited for this, because Dr. Will is a great player, and will hopefully bring some drama and tear up the house.

Julie then revealed a twist that has never happened before. A week from today, the first ever TRIPLE eviction will occur in a special 2-hour episode. That’s right, 3 people will be sent out the door next week, which will cause a lot of stress through the house. I can’t WAIT for this. Double evictions happen every year, but a triple is a first. I hope this will be a time for someone from the Committee (cough, cough, MEMPHIS) to go home.

My New Winner Pick: 
Because I changed my winner pick to Da’Vonne, I now have to pick a new prediction for the winner of BB22. With so few people I genuinely want to root for, the pickings are slim. However, my pick is going to lie with Enzo. He has great relationships with everyone, and joined the Wise Guys with Memphis. He also has won competitions, and no one has come for him in any capacity. I think he has a good place in the house, and I think he could take it to the end.

Big Brother Recap: Eviction Night #2 (23×07)

Published

Big Brother Preseason

16 days into the game, and this season has been better than the entirety of last year. Frenchie’s first HOH reign will go down in the BB history books as one of the wildest use of power the show has ever seen. Julie even said this was the most “enormous fall from power” she’s ever seen. And it came to an end on tonight’s live eviction.

The opening minutes of the show showed two very different nominees. Frenchie continues to flop around, saying he’s given up, while also referencing the infamous Dan Gheesling’s strategy of moping around while he’s on the block. He’s not very good at acting, and he tries to campaign to a lot of the house. On the other hand, you have Britini, who’s optimistic personality has gotten onto the good sides of the house, as they all talk about how much they love her. Sometimes you have to just be yourself and ignore the game, and odds are it’ll save you.

Sarah Beth opened up to Kyland tonight about her relationship with her father, who passed away from COVID last year. I’ve grown to really like Sarah Beth as the game has progressed, and her opening up about her story helped us see the real Sarah Beth; she looks like such a down-to-earth person.

With the eviction pretty much secured, Kyland starts to think ahead to the future. With the Slaughterhouse, well, slaughtered, the soon-to-be outgoing HOH gathered all the teams together to see where everyone’s head are at, and the formation of a brand new alliance was born. The Kings and Queens team formed together to make the Royal Flush. Consisting of Kyland, Claire, Tiffany, Christian, Alyssa, Sarah Beth, Xavier, and the wild card of Derek X., this group is ready to take on the post-Frenchie game. The general consensus lands on Brent, who over the last week has been shown to be a real sexist. His belief is because two guys are targets, then two women should be targeted, just to “even it out.” That’s the mildest part of what he’s done, compared to the feeds…I agree he should be the next target.

Britini rapped her eviction defense speech, which was something we’ve never seen. It certainly was interesting, but I hope that doesn’t become a trend. Frenchie kept his speech fairly tame, saying that he wants to stay and continue the memories so far. Not much of a defense from the messy country boy, but he knew he was done.

The votes were made, and the votes were counted, and shockingly Britini went home!!

I’m just kidding, but wouldn’t that have been insane? I would’ve thrown my computer out the window if that were the case.

Derek F. decided to ruin his game and throw one vote, making him the only person who has yet to be on the majority side of the vote.

By an 11-1 vote, Frenchie was the second person evicted from the house. The man kept it classy, making everyone do a group hug, then proceeded to hug everyone. Julie asked him about his gameplay, and he proceeded to do his usual pandering, saying he wanted to not send the old guy home first, because he wanted to “make a change, and not send the old guy home first. Oh well, guess the old guy can go second!

Kyland is officially no longer HOH, and it’s time to crown a new one! This competition was the first question and answer competition of the season, and it featured comedian and former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Tom Green doing a Billy on the Street like videos, talking to people on the street about the show. The players then had to answer questions based on the videos, and if they were wrong, they were out. It came down to Derek X., Hannah, Alyssa, Sarah Beth, and Xavier, but one questioned caused all but one to be eliminated, and now Xavier is the new Head of Household! This also means the entire Kings team is safe, leaving Christian, Sarah Beth, and Alyssa immune for the week.

Before signing off, Julie revealed the new Wild Card twist could throw the teams into disarray, but didn’t fully disclose, because we have wait until Sunday to know the full details.

Who will Xavier Nominate?
He’s part of the Royal Flush alliance mentioned earlier, so it’s possible that he’ll continue on the path that everyone wants, and target Brent. There’s also a target on Whitney’s back from the Frenchie association, so it could be the two of them. I personally would even consider Derek F., but with him aligned with Xavier in the Cookout alliance, his safety seems pretty secure.

Big Brother Recap: Smells Like French Toast (23×06)

Big Brother Preseason

Frenchie’s two weeks in the Big Brother have been nothing been chaotic; probably the most chaotic in the show’s history. I personally have never seen a quicker rise and fall of a player ever. The show’s edit is only a fraction of what we get in the feeds. But that could change when the Power of Veto is up for grabs.

After being nominated, we got to see the reactions of the nominees, Britini and Frenchie. Britini cries in utter confusion, not realizing that by her not throwing Frenchie under the bus to Kyland, that gave the HOH the wrong impression. Frenchie, fully aware he is the target, even insists that if he wins the Veto, he’s going to use on Britini. He knows that if he stays, everyone will be gunning for him.

Not only that, but he tried to take himself out of the game, and has gone on rants by himself thinking he needs another chance at playing the game on a future season. Yeah, uhm, don’t see that happening at all.

Frenchie and Britini both talk to Kyland separately to talk about the nominations. Kyland bluntly told Frenchie that he’s the target and that there is no other plan but to get him out. Kyland then informed Britini that she’s only on the block because she didn’t say throw Frenchie’s name out. Britini then told Frenchie that everyone threw him under the bus.

Frenchie’s downfall continues as he then “admits” the Slaughterhouse alliance (that HE created) to everyone in the house. He starts posing all of these empty threats to everybody that this big alliance is running the house, and he was a part of it before they turned him away. But because he’s been playing so horribly, everyone knows that Frenchie is the epicenter of all of these alliances. The man is trying to stir the pot, in the pot that has already been stirred…by him.

The Veto players for this week were Kyland, Frenchie, Britini, Derek X., Alyssa, and Claire. These selections didn’t bode well for either nominee, as none of the randomly drawn players would help them out if they win.

For this Veto competition, players competed separately and had to catch a bucket of suntan oil from giant sprayers, and fill up a container to retrieve a whistle at the bottom of it. The sprayers were set in a predetermined order, so they had to memorize it to get the most oil, and whoever had the quickest time was the winner. As the oil got everywhere, it made the floor slippery, which caused for some good wipeouts. Kyland had a good strategy, using his body to catch any lotion that missed the bucket, Britini however, figured out the pattern rather quickly, and was able to fill her container quite quickly from there. Derek X. and Claire didn’t have high stakes, feeling very safe with Kyland in power. Frenchie looked like he was slipping and sliding on purpose, to play it up for the cameras.

Everyone did a pretty good job, with the highest time being Alyssa with 7 minutes. However, it was Derek X., who had 4 minutes and 40 seconds, giving him his second Veto win of the season! Great on him for proving to be a big comp beast.

Frenchie has all but given up, and his team rallies around him to raise his spirits. Sure it was good for team spirit, but Frenchie ruined their game, so, it was kind of counterproductive in my opinion.

Derek X. calls the Veto Meeting to order, and it was a no-brainer, and he did NOT use the Veto, leaving Britini and Frenchie on the block for eviction night.

Prediction for Eviction:
You’re kidding, right? This is a question I’m really getting right now? Frenchie. I don’t think it’ll be a unanimous vote, as I think Derek F. will throw one vote on Britini so he never betrays his Final 2 deal. It was an entertaining two weeks with a personality like Frenchie in the house, but for the sake of the game, he’s gotta go.

Big Brother Recap: A New Week Begins (23×05)

Big Brother Preseason

Frenchie’s Funhouse is over. Travis has been evicted. Kyland is the new HOH. Everything’s normal, right? Right?? Not necessarily. The shift in power means a shift in gameplay, and the house is still in disarray, with Frenchie at the center of it all.

After the show’s three minute long recap (way too long), the house was discussing who threw two rogue votes on Alyssa. Derek F. revealed in the Diary Room that he threw a vote as a joke, because he wanted anonymously stir the pot. Tiffany revealed that she made a deal with Frenchie that if she threw a vote on Alyssa, Frenchie cannot tell a soul it was her. Tiffany knows she won’t tell anyone it was her, so she has the leverage over him. Tiffany even caught Frenchie talking to Brent and Whitney running his mouth about the votes.

Nervous about Frenchie spilling the beans, she goes to Kyland and warns him that Frenchie is not a man of his word. However, Kyland reveals (with the footage to prove it) that right before he was sent out the door, Travis told Kyland everything that Frenchie promised and didn’t hold onto.

Unlike with the previous HOH, Kyland got to have his “who wants to see my HOH room” moment. This is a large montage where the whole cast will see the HOH room. The room doesn’t ever change, just the personal items and a letter from home. This was heartwarming to watch Kyland miss his family so much and what being in the game means to him.

I also need to acknowledge that Tiffany showed a strategy that she uses with Azah, where she pretends to cry and Azah pretends to console her so she can eavesdrop on any conversations that might be happening around. It’s a strong strategy that works out well for Tiffany and Azah, but hopefully they don’t overuse it.

Tonight’s episode brought the second Wild Card Competition. The Queens team, Hannah, and Christian were all not allowed to compete, since the Queens are safe, and Hannah and Christian already played. Frenchie wanted to play for the Jokers team because he wants to stay safe, because he feels everyone is coming for him (and he’s right). For the Aces team, they left it up to fate, and Brent was selected to play. Sarah Beth decided to volunteer for the Kings team, because she wanted the chance to take a chance at leaving Frenchie vulnerable.

After a hesitant conversation with Kyland, Frenchie gets a feelings that Kyland may not want to be in the Slaughterhouse alliance anymore.

This sends Frenchie into the beginning of his week-long downward spiral. He stormed to Brent saying that he’s done, he bombards into Whitney’s room saying he’s done with the alliance. He gets one bad read, and he disintegrates his entire game, and the ones he’s said he’s aligned with. Even Brent said that if Frenchie were a passenger on a plane he’s a flight attendant on, Frenchie would be escorted off the plane by the police. The destruction of Frenchie’s game has been mind-boggling to watch on the feeds, because he doesn’t have any fun and gets mad when other people are playing the game the way they want to play it.

With a mystery offer on the line, it’s time for the Wild Card competition! The players were put in separate “art galleries,” and they were shown paintings and then a had to answer a random question about the colors on the painting. They had to be the first to get the question right to get a point, and the first person to three points won the competition. The players would know they got a question right if they got doused in paint. It was a tie between all three players after three rounds, but it didn’t matter, because Sarah Beth’s quick thinking and fast memorization, she was blasted with paint, making her the winner of the competition.

The Wild Card decision that came with this win, however, was a very brutal one. In order to have safety for the week, Sarah Beth had to trade places with someone on the Queens team, meaning selecting either Claire or Tiffany to go to the Kings team. If she trades, the person traded will be vulnerable.

It’s a very daunting decision to make, but Sarah Beth knew that if she traded, she would lose trust in a lot of people in the house. Plus, she has a final 2 deal with Kyland, so there’s no need to trade around. Finally, the power isn’t in Frenchie’s hands, and that’s what convinces Sarah Beth to NOT take the safety, and stay with her team.

With nominations looming, Tiffany sits with Kyland to go over everything. She subtly suggests that Frenchie should be the main target, with Brent or Whitney as the second and third. not only that, but we got to see almost every other HouseGuest sit with Kyland, throwing Frenchie’s name under the bus. It was WILD to see everyone in the former Slaughterhouse turn on its former leader so fast.

Britini also throws out Frenchie, but Kyland was getting a bad read on her, thinking that she might be holding back a little extra information that she was giving, making him a little suspicious.

The Nomination Ceremony commences, and Kyland throws Britini and Frenchie on the block to begin the week. Kyland feels that Britini is a little too loyal to Frenchie considering they’re on the same team. Britini is furious because she feels guilty by association, and not aligned with Frenchie at all. Frenchie is not surprised, but said he’s never going to quit.

For the feeds people, Frenchie said he was going to quit the game yesterday, causing the feeds to go down for an hour. So…what was that about not quitting?

Best Player of the Episode:
Tiffany. We got to see a lot of her strategy, and the way she’s able to mingle through different groups of people is incredibly strong. I think we’re watching the growth of a phenomenal Big Brother player.

Worst Player of the Episode:
For the second week in a row, Frenchie. The man has all but ruined his game, and everyone around him is trying to not associate with him anymore. The way he plays is aggressive, and remains furious at people who try to play it their way. He’s also made way too many promises that he never kept.
