Bay is competing with Sam, for the worst HOH ever.
I went in, giving her the benefit of the doubt (even though, I don’t know how Bay won HOH yet). As time went on, and I learned more, my position became more and more untenable: I love Bay personally, but she cannot play this game. Now that I have learned everything she has said, verbatim, I am wondering if I still like her personally and I know she has destroyed her, and all of Foutte’s game.
We went from Bay being able to possibly claim credit for 1) backdooring Tyler (Exceeds the standard), which now can’t happen, to 2) let’s just get Brett out (Meets the standard) to 3) Scottie could very well go home (Fails to meet the standard!).
Scottie is the best thing that ever happened to Foutte and their only rep for the Final Five. Now Bay is not only going to end up eliminating him, but all of Foutte is going to die on that hill. Scottie is their Call for Fire. Without him, Foutte will be overrun by enemy infantry.
Bay had the worst case of HOH-itis I have ever seen. She got into the weeds on things that didn’t matter, micromanaged and unnecessarily annoyed her alliance, and worse, told the enemy a play-by-play of how her power app works, when her entire app, Identity Theft, depends on secrecy and none of the nomination changes being traced back to her!
On top of that, she had no problem reminding Rachel of her power app’s weakness: that changing the noms, does not prevent Bay from being put up as a replacement nominee, if someone wins the POV and uses it.
Bay, Fessy and Hay have all been displaying Bottom Five behavior. I highly overestimated Bay’s potential, even when I put her in my Bottom Five. She is the final nail in the coffin, for Foutte. Never trust Tyler. With women like Kaitlyn and Bay, even Tyler’s wackiest and least probable ideas, become reality.
JC, the Merciful, AKA Vampire Hunter, just has to sit back and watch Tyler further expose himself and watch Foutte finally destroy each other (FOH, worst alliance in BB history). My Final Five/Four remains the same, minus if Scottie goes home, instead of Rachel. Brett is still way too exposed, and I don’t consider him Final Five material. (The Final Five includes: JC, Scottie, Rachel, Angela and Kaycee).
Just my notes on this utter mess of a HOH; it’s like the office of the HOH has no power anymore, because its inhabitants have managed to mismanage its powers so thoroughly. Scottie was the last paradigm of a great HOH, since he #PulledUp and won the POV.
Words and promises are nothing without weight and action behind them. An HOH’s job is to listen, not speak; why is Bay telling Rachel and Tyler all of her plans and all about her app? Bottom Five behavior for sure, along with Fessy and Hay.
