BB: Dairy Queen, Dancing Queen

Angela, the Dairy Queen

Angela was probably tired of Tyler’s nonsense. She wanted OUT. Their relationship seemed like it could have taken place in seventh grade – not between two adults. Puppy love. I’m with Rob on this one: #Tangela is as dull as Velveeta cheese. Unctuous. Corny. Kitsch.

Love is not perfect. A compelling love, like a compelling hero or anti-hero, is flawed. We knew Faleigh would never last, but fans enjoyed watching them snipe and bicker, like a cantankerous old couple. For Tangela, everything is easy – and easy is boring. If Tangela didn’t feel like they had to keep their relationship a secret, the audience would have soured on them, a long time ago.

Angela was just exhausted. She was tired of ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ with Tyler, as the ideal couple. Angela got all the bad results of being a compelling villain and none of the superior results, like her mate, the smaller spider, Tyler. She got blamed for everything, by the jury, but Angela didn’t capitalize on her bloodthirsty reputation, to actually win the game.

Taran, the robot’s, heart melted, by the end of the game. My frozen heart never saw the first rays of spring. This TV love didn’t tickle my heart strings. It was moronic. I was worried Tyler would lose his edge, but Angela basically became a housewife and took the fall, for her man. She was left sitting on the asphalt, outside the BB house, wondering what the heck happened to her. Angela got sideswiped by Tyler’s Maserati, burning his way down the speedway, toward the Final Two. Watch out for road rash.

Sam, the maid, can’t imagine a life without cooking and cleaning for the BB HGs. Angela relied on her alliance to the end. She had no contingency plans, she had no support Final Twos. Tyler, meanwhile, had a Final Two, with everyone and his or her mom. If Angela hadn’t listened to conniving Tyler and cut her original Ride-or-Die, Rachel, she might have had a paddle, in hell. But instead, after Kaycee and Tyler cut her, following JC’s earth-shattering W, Angela was left sailing down the Styx, into the abyss (I love mythology).

What happened to her, man? What’s wrong with Angela? – as Rachel would say. What happened to Angela’s warrior spirit? Why did she throw her killer instinct out the window? Amazonia?!?!

Kaitlyn was the best thing in this season

@kaitcoaching was the real winner of #BB20.

It’s too bad that we can’t have a full LGBT Final Two. Both of these two are, sadly, still stuck on Tyler. Gay female Kaycee thinks Tyler is her straight or bisexual male bro. JC is still lost in this tragic gay person crushing on an uninterested straight or bisexual, same-sex person story arc. It’s not good.

Tyler cannot take Kaycee, if he wants to win. But JC could also beat him too, if Tyler decided to take him. Foutte is blaming itself, in the jury house but it won’t be too long before they turn their guns outside of the circle and start firing at Tyler. Rockstar, Bay and Co. would definitely vote for any LGBT person, over Tyler, at this point – even JC.

JC just couldn’t win that second competition. He’s going out, in third place. He played a good social game, manipulated everyone but Tyler, Angela and Kaycee and orchestrated many significant votes, including Kaitlyn’s downfall – but in the end you need to win comps, to enact your will. A “rat, floater game” – as Taran puts it – can only take you so far.

very likely to happen

JC could only win one comp, so he had to rely on various hosts – Fessy, Brett, Tyler and even, at one point, Kaycee. Fessy and Brett bit the bullet, for JC, but both Tyler and Kaycee successfully resisted JC’s parasitic influence. Tyler picked Level 6, his showmance with Angela and finally, his Final Two with Kaycee, over JC.

JC’s problem was that he thought Tyler would put him first – over the aforementioned Level 6, Angela and Kaycee. JC would have won the game, if he hadn’t underestimated the extent of Tyler’s duplicity. ‘Never commit to anyone;’ never believe in anyone, without question. Or as Reagan would say, “Trust but verify.” JC got left in the Broken Hearts Club.

Foutte wins in the end

Then there’s freedom of choice, or at least, the allusion of choice. Some people can, for the most part, make the right decisions – but the spice of life is all of the people who can’t or won’t make the right decisions. I’ve said it before: in the elements, in Survivor, people’s true selves come out, real quick. Bring back Have-Nots, with a vengeance. Put HGs on slop. Get more people to show their HOH-itis – and you’ll see people’s real selves jump out. Four words: Lord of the Flies.

BB: Refusing to Talk Game

go home tyler

If you’re running in, to hug somebody, and he or she stops you, mid-stride, and asks you, “Do you trust me?” be very suspicious of this person! What will it take, JC? Wake up!

When you believe you are the numbers, you usually fail. JC – and Brett, before he was toasted – both believed they were the numbers, to get out Tyler, Angela or Kaycee, when the time came.

However, Brett and JC spun around and wasted time, and before you knew it, Fessy was gone, Scottie was gone and even Rockstar was gone. All of those people could have been meat shields – numbers! – for Brett or JC, to make a move and take out Tyler, Angela or Kaycee. Yet they didn’t capitalize on these people and let all of their personnel be voted out. Hope is not a strategy!

JC was a skillful player but his one blind-spot – that Tyler played him, and worked with Level 6, the whole time – was the biggest and worst, one, last blind-spot he could have.  Tyler’s in-game immune system was strong enough to fight off Parasite JC, and now JC is drying up and withering away, without a host.

Kaycee had the veto; the plan should have been to backdoor Tyler now! But Kaycee has been playing it safe, all season. She doesn’t have the killer instinct. Kaycee didn’t want “to make waves,” or “put a target on her back,” or “disrupt Angela’s HOH.” A winner would do all of those things. Brett followed Kaycee’s strategy, of not doing anything and he’s no longer in the house. As expected, Kaycee did not use the veto on anyone and definitely didn’t backdoor anyone. Timid!

Sam asked Kaycee if she would use the veto on her. I am starting to get annoyed at Sam and JC. If you don’t want to talk game, don’t talk game at all! Sam gets upset when the others ask her about the game, but when someone else wins HOH or the veto, Sam is quick to ask if she’s safe. Yes, she’s self-interested, which is good. But if Sam was really self-interested, she would win more than one comp, per game. How about that?

JC is still digging into Tyler about supposedly throwing away the game, not for them, but really for JC. If I was Tyler, I might have lost patience with JC already. How about you win a comp, JC?!?! I get it; the physical comps are difficult, but there were also several mental and intellectual comps! There’s no excuse!

JC, Tyler is not going to “separate the girls.” I am tired of hearing about this. Get a clue, JC! If you don’t care, it’s OK not care, (and this goes for Sam, too) – but if you do care, do something about it! Stop talking about it and do something about it! Every day, it’s the same thing from JC and I am sure Tyler and the audience have had enough of it, by now.

The Three – Tyler, Angela and Kaycee – are making plans to reveal Level 6, to Sam and JC. Spilling the beans on Level 6 would be a non-event, at best (this would definitely fly over someone, like Fessy’s, head), and enraging to the jury members, at worst. Don’t do it!

What is wrong with revealing things after the show, when a winner has already been crowned? Tyler and Angela have gotten everything they wanted and the gravy train; why rub this mega-alliance in the minions’ faces?

And don’t tell Sam that she’s going home. She will dump the rice. #CurbStomp!
