BB: “Pinky Promise”

USA is the best country in the WORLD

OMG, I finally understand Sam.

I was disappointed with Sam, playing with her heart, with the whole Brett-thing. However, similar to JC, Sam can also make good decisions, for game reasons and for personal reasons.

Sam has not reneged on her desire to see Tyler gone. She is still playing a strategic game. In fact, she thought Tyler was going home this week. I mean, Fessy is HOH; this is what was supposed to happen this week.

Sam is the key. Once Foutte is mopped up, the next one on the fodder roster is JC. The only way JC can maneuver to protect himself is through Sam.

Sam is the wedge that can safely go after other members of Level 6, like Brett, getting them out, before JC – because she is an independent, just like JC.

Without Queen Sam, there is no King JC. Sam’s whole spiel about her ‘person,’ is really just code for ‘Final Two,’ since the personal and the game are very much entwined for Sam – but not always to her detriment.

Sam and JC are the only people who can take out, fellow independent, Tyler.

Tyler is no longer Sam’s ‘person.’ He is no longer her Final Two. Hence, her search for a new Final Two, in Rockstar and Brett. However, Sam doesn’t even need people, like Brett, to make it to the Final Five. She is back in my Final Five – Sam, JC, Kaycee, Angela and Scottie.

Where does this leave Scottie? Sam may very well replace Scottie in my Final Four, because Brett has won the veto, and Scott doesn’t have a prayer. He doesn’t have an ice cube’s chance in hell – unless Fessy buys Sam’s pitch…

Sam needs to really play up how Hammock Brett is going to get Hay. She needs to make a dual pitch with Scottie, in which Scottie moves up his eviction speech revelation, that Hay had a Final Two, with Scottie.

Sam and Scottie need to make Fessy feel the threat of Brett getting his woman and/or that Hay has been unfaithful. Fessy needs to feel so enraged and jealous that he replaces Brett with Hay. This is the only way to save Scottie.

However, if Scottie does go home, I can understand. As I said, in my last dispatch, Scottie cannot escape that vote against Swaggy – just like Bay couldn’t get out from under telling Rachel about her power app.

When I saw Scottie fraternizing with Level 6, after Bay’s HOH, I internally felt very disappointed. Foutte has been horrible to Scottie. But games (BB, Survivor) and real life never reward traitors. Level 6 pretended to accept Scottie, but they knew that if he could turn on his original alliance – twice, since he voted Swaggy out, earlier – he couldn’t be trusted to hang with them.

Like Bay, trying to join Level 6, the best Scottie could ever manage was the very bottom of Level 6, the best that a boot-licker could deserve.

I felt better when Scottie decided to go independent. Yet, the game is at such an advanced stage, and there are so few people, that there is no more time or room for a new independent alliance. Scottie was squeezed out. He had a great HOH reign, and then he was diverted by a futile crush on Hay – that will be his destruction, if he can’t get Hay up on the block, in his place.

SO, Sam’s plan is strategically sound. But she is talking to Fessy here. Regardless of Hay’s intentions, RS still went home, during Hay’s HOH (#48LawsOfPower: See what people do, not what they say). Unlike Hay, Fessy is actually hellbent on sending Scottie home, for personal reasons. Let’s see if strategically un-sound Foutte will, once again, damage itself critically.

Regardless of what happens to Scottie, Sam will be here and present for the endgame. Stop protecting that stupid pinky promise with Tyler, Sam. Expose his power app and declare war. The battle for Level 6’s union is at hand.

Sam is perfect

BB: “The Bayleigh Vote”


Why would Hay cry with Bay, have a house meeting to clear Bay’s name – and then still vote her out?!?

It was crocodile tears on the part of Hay and Fessy. As I said earlier, the only reason they didn’t have the votes, was because Tyler did this Hail Mary pass, with his Cloud app, disillusioning Sam, and making her believe any attempt to save Bay would be useless.

I am sure that if Sam had gone to Bay and said, ‘I’m voting for you to stay,’ Bay would have told Hay and Hay would have gotten Scottie and Fessy to be on-board.

What Foutte doesn’t understand is that you don’t just end up on the right or the wrong side of the vote – you create your own destiny. You create your own majority, your own numbers! This is what Level 6 has been doing from Day One and that’s why they’re cleaning the floor with these Foutte imbeciles.

The only one who genuinely cried for Bay was Sam. Tyler can steamroll all the other n00b NPCs in the house. But if Tyler ever touches Sam – the same way if Bay, had backdoored Scottie – I will never forgive him. Never.

I don’t mind a good villain, but some things just fly over the moral event horizon.

Now Bay is gone for good. I want Sam to stop crying and to fight. Kaycee is a peer and that would be a fair fight. Kaycee is starting tiffs with Rockstar because she’s angry that RS is taking Sam away from her. But your fight isn’t with an elder and a mother of three, Kaycee. If you have any honor, go to the source. You two fight it out and stop moaning and griping behind each other’s backs. Fight or kiss and make up. Geez.

It looks like RS is going to be gone; Sam is going to have to be able to stand on her own two feet and win this thing for herself. The training wheels are coming off. Mom is nowhere in sight!

As for Faysal, crushing him in this critique, just doesn’t feel like a fair fight. He is just – ugh – he has no game-play to speak of. Swaggy said Fessy was his boy, and that once Swaggy was gone, Fessy would “cook” them all. Fessy barely voted for Swaggy to stay and he definitely didn’t vote for Bay to stay. Fessy’s said it himself: the only thing he wants out of this game is Hay(!).

This is ridiculous. You couldn’t have a more useless sack of potatoes. No wonder JC calls Fessy ‘stupid.’ I can’t believe he has survived this far. Hay doesn’t like him; she just likes the male attention she gets from him. I still maintain Brett is better for her. Brett and Hay bring out the best in each other. They have chemistry. They are the best male and female flirts in the house.

Hay and Fessy just seem like a tragic love story (even though Grodner is desperate for a showmance, now that both Swaggy and Bay are gone). Hay recently opened up to Fessy, about being adopted and such, and they got to second base. But it was still Cringe, because all Hay does with Fessy, is pout. He brings out her worst self.

Fessy just seems too desperate with Hay. He knows he has a hot girl and he can’t bear to lose her! If Fessy and Hay were never in the house together, they would have never connected, in the real world.

As for bringing out the worst in Hay, wine in the bathtub, with Tyler, was the lowest common denominator. I said I wouldn’t judge females (or males) that way, but isn’t she proving Sam right, by hoping to get to Tyler, through lust alone?

In the beginning of her HOH week, one convo with Angela, was enough to sway her to nominate Sam. Good thing RS was there, to talk some strategic sense into Hay! Now, Tyler is supposedly not even her target, and she wants Kaycee out. This is the heights of stupidity! This is why half of Twitter wants Foutte gone, so that those who are left can finally start playing the game.

Hay joins the valley of discarded toys, who have been broken by their HOH week – especially if RS goes home this week. Except for Tyler (the first HOH has a bit of a pass, since no one knows anyone yet) and brave-hearted Scottie, the HOH room has brought out the worst in Kaitlyn, Sam, Bay, Angela and now, Hay. Everyone just takes a power trip!

Big Brother is a slower game than Survivor, and that’s just fine, because the conditions of BB are meant to mirror the daily office politics, of real life. A sped-up version of The Sims let’s say. On Survivor, being in the bush, fending for yourself, brings out a person’s true character in a heartbeat.

In the cushy BB house, especially since being a Have-Not is not such a big deal anymore, people’s true selves can simmer under the surface for weeks and weeks. The villain (Tyler) or the floater (Fessy) can sit around for a month, before anyone gets a clue.

If Tyler was on Survivor, like Chris, he would be gone before he could say ‘Surf’s Up, Dude.’ But on BB he gets to sit pretty, until the 11th hour, especially since his HOH win was at the very beginning of the game.

In BB, the only thing that is like the wilderness, that can bring out people’s true face, is the HOH room. Why do you think JC and Kaycee have been avoiding being HOH, thus far? Being HOH forces you to show your cards. It holds a mirror up to your character: will you stir up the pot (Scottie) or just go with the flow, only to be voted out next week (Bay)?

Hay may have a higher IQ, than most people in the house, but her social game, as even she seems to know, rests almost entirely on her looks. Hay knows Tyler is coming after her. Hay knows Tyler knows that she came after him. If it wasn’t for this breather of a HOH week, she would be gone. Next week, Hay, of course, cannot play in the HOH comp. Let’s see if, like Bay, Hay is gone, one week later.

As for Tyler, it’s only too bad, that he was rightly persecuting Bay for having a power, but when he spills the beans on his power, he isn’t being held accountable. Hold another house meeting Sam, except make this one count. Expose the snake!
