Hay’s youth is showing. She’s very smart, but only 21 and impressionable. She’s mature, an ‘old soul,’ for her age but her adult life has only just begun.
Hay is completely on the outs and it’s really sad. However, especially since production is giving her a bulletproof edit, because she is so young, CBS might think they have a winner – a new, young star, who can come back in future BB seasons and play better – like Boston Rob when he first started out.
Then we can see the evolution of Hay, throughout the seasons of the show, like the aforementioned Rob. That might be a better future for Hay, after striking out, this season.
JC has been getting into real hot water, with Tyler, but if he can cease and desist, I will continue to support him. What’s going for JC, strategically, is that Tyler needs him. JC isn’t going anywhere.
On the personal side, JC should dump his romantic feelings for Tyler, like he did for Fessy. Only talk to Tyler on a game level, because right now, JC is coming on too strong, and I don’t want JC to take himself out of the game.
My strategy for JC (and Kaycee) was to avoid being HOH, since that puts you on the spot and forces you to show your cards. However, if you are going to remain in the shadows, you also have to be ready to go up on the block, as a pawn.
The division of labor that has worked for Level 6, is that people like Tyler and Angela, take the heat, as HOH, and the ninjas, the shadow masters and the moles, like Brett and Kaycee, take a different sort of heat, going up on the block, next to the target.
JC hasn’t touched the block, which is great. But he hasn’t taken the other role, as the ‘face’ of the organization: the HOH. I don’t want him to touch the block, so it may be time for JC to win a HOH and put some muscle behind his punch.
JC really wanted to win the last HOH, with the spinning and the pie of doom, but he was first out, as usual. Still, for this week, at least, JC will get what he wants: Kaycee won her second veto; Scottie will go home (again).
JC has also calmed down, to Tyler, at minimum, on his real plans to evict Angela and Kaycee. However, next HOH comp, JC needs to push his crushes, on Tyler and Brett, to the side and put the pedal to the floor. This is JC’s time.
This battle-back is just a setback (Rewind. Groundhog Day, Doctor Who). Get rid of Scottie. He was already voted out and has outlived his usefulness.
Scottie doesn’t know when to stop talking. The juice isn’t worth the squeeze or having Sam (!) as a swing vote. Hay just needs a light touch, and she will get rid of Sam, and then be evicted, the week after.
A bitter jury is a lame tactic, but it’s still a tactic. This is why I have been pushing for the Level 6 civil war to happen sooner, rather than later – so that there will be, at least, someone from Lvl. 6, in the jury, with enough BB mist, to sway the vote. It’s a counter-intuitive strategy, but going forward, it seems jury management will include more than just GBMs.
August 24: “This doesn’t make sense.” RIP Scottie
“Yes, Level 6 doesn’t care about Bay and Rockstar’s jury votes, but as more Foutte members join the jury, they will form a voting bloc, with their own definition of reality and their own demands for justice. By the time the Level 6 people hit the jury, the narrative, for the finale, will be set, and it will be too late.”
I am glad #Tangela will be cancelled, even post-BB20. I never saw the attraction. Their personalities just don’t click. Angela, the Queen, deserves someone better than the villain, ‘Interview with the Vampire,’ Tyler.
