BB: Not ‘Saved by the Bell’ AKA Tyler and His Minions

Idiots2

JC was never supposed to make it past Final 4. He doesn’t know Level 6 exists and by the virtue of Level 6 formerly having six people in it, JC wasn’t supposed to even make Final 6, either.

Tyler was never going to win the POV for JC. Veto Queen Kaycee won it and noms are staying the same. JC is just lucky that Winston, Rachel and Brett angered Tyler and messed up more than him.

Tyler, of course, knows JC was never going to the Final 2 but JC is taking a long journey toward this painful reality, that has existed since the beginning of the game. Tyler was never going to split up Kaycee and Angela, in the Double Eviction. JC is lucky that he and Hay or even he and Sam didn’t go home, during the Double Eviction.

Tyler is still stonewalling JC, but he is wrongly blowing up on Tyler. Yes, JC has had a stellar social game, but like Tyler, Angela and Kaycee, you have to actually win some comps, to enact your will, on the house.

As for Tyler, I love how Tyler almost lost control of all his lies, in front of Angela. He was telling Angela that, as independents, Tyler and JC were the middle men, the moles, spying on both sides. JC was collecting intel on Foutte and Tyler was scouting out Level 6.

Tyler and JC were supposed to keep the sides even, but Tyler eventually worked things, so that Foutte would be completely levelled. Tyler did have a Final 2 with JC, but he has a Final 2 with everybody.

JC thought Tyler was his ‘person,’ but Tyler’s been everyone’s ‘person’ – until he gets said person voted out (Kaitlyn, Brett, Hay, and soon, Sam). Rat recognizes rat – but JC still doesn’t know that, all this time, Tyler was also in Level 6. If he doesn’t win HOH next week, he’s #Done.

Level 6 has won the last 11 competitions, starting with Brett’s veto win, during Fessy’s HOH week. Between the Three – Angela, Tyler and Kaycee – they have won the last 10 competitions.

Tyler, Angela and Kaycee have all won six competitions, a-piece, including twist wins, like Kaycee’s Hacker win and Angela’s win, at the beginning of the game, that put a target on her back and forced her into a duel with Swaggy.

So, Tyler is giving JC a ton of slack – and continuing to play a bang-up social game – when JC, who hasn’t won a single competition, even the non-physical competitions, yells at Tyler, for not winning the veto, for him. JC, Tyler doesn’t owe you anything. He’s lucky Tyler doesn’t tell him this, to his face.

You see, Brett, JC, Sam and possibly even, Kaycee are so loyal, to a fault, that they will do things not in their best interests for Parasite Tyler. Tyler and Brett filled almost the same niche, of the strong, younger guy. Natural selection dictates either Tyler or Brett will survive, but not both. One of them has to go. Why couldn’t Brett fathom that Tyler would be coming after him?

In Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains, Amanda told Parvati to play her idol, and an immediate red flag went up in Parvati’s mind. Parvati then went on to make one of the best moves in Survivor history, by playing her idol and an idol she received from Russell, on her minions, splitting the vote and saving her alliance.

Tyson, who had made a deal with the devil, Russell, to get one of Parvati’s allies, Jerri, out, ended up voting himself out, when his vote for Jerri didn’t count, and the votes for Tyson did. Tyson would have saved himself, if he hadn’t decided to flip, and target Jerri.

In BB20, Tyler told Brett to throw the veto. Why would Tyler tell Brett to throw the veto, if he wanted to keep the Level 6 alliance strong? A red flag should have gone up, in Brett’s head, alerting him to the fact, that Tyler no longer considered him a part of Level 6, and was targeting him.

As for JC, why can’t he see that Tyler keeping these extra two people around, in their Final Four – Angela and Kaycee – is diametrically opposed to Tyler’s Final 2 with himself? To trust Tyler, is to destroy your own game. Tyler is working completely against your self-interest, JC! Wake up!

Tyler’s phenomenal, emotionally-based game can actually explain the weirdness of a bitter jury. People like Kaitlyn, Bay, Hay, Sam, Brett and JC, feel deeply, emotionally connected to Tyler.

The HGs will follow Tyler, even if what he says doesn’t make any sense (the whole plan to backdoor Scottie by pretending to be his friend; claiming Rockstar and Scottie were siblings) or when his plans conflict with their convictions, their games and their self-interest.

Then these followers of Tyler end up in the jury house, and they have no rational explanation, as to why. All they can remember is their emotional connection to Tyler and how that trust was betrayed. They can’t see the strategy at all – because there isn’t much of it, beyond animal magnetism – and then, these jury members become very bitter.

BB: Tyler’s Dilemma – “Over It”

lol entourage

Brett and Hay will definitely be back, for future seasons.

Tyler, Angela and Kaycee have won 15, out of 18, of the last competitions – as of the Double Eviction. Tyler and Angela have 4 HOH wins, between them, now. The last time anyone, other than Tyler, Angela or Kaycee, won a competition, was back when Fessy won HOH and Brett won the veto – and then Scottie went home. Think about that, for a moment.

Brett has just been voted out, so the Brett fans are trying to coalesce around JC. If Kaycee can possibly beat Tyler, in the Final Two – JC can possibly beat Tyler, in the Final Two. JC and Kaycee have both been in my Final Five, since the beginning. All of these latecomers are now hopping on the JC train; I liked JC before he was cool!

Braleigh evicted, in a one-two shot! I still can’t believe it – even though I have been predicting their demise, from the beginning of the season. Braleigh had many good attributes: funny, relatively smart, flirty, good-looking.

Compared to most BB players – especially Hay, with her youthful age, of 21 – Brett and Hay are very good game-players. But compared to Tangela, Braleigh was just average. Tangela was playing on an entirely different level. Coming right into the game, I already knew there were tiers, to the talent. Foutte, including Hay, were in Tier 3, on the bottom.

Brett and independents, like Sam and JC, were Tier 2 – they were playing a marginally better game than Tier 3 but were still clueless about many subjects (for example, JC not knowing that Level 6 even existed). Tier 1 is reserved almost exclusively for Tyler, Angela and Kaycee. Yes, Kaycee – even though I would agree that, as of now, she is the weakest, out of the three Tier 1 players.

So, I sensed this hierarchy at the beginning of the game. I knew Braleigh was good TV but would eventually be toast, as far as gameplay. One can claim hindsight is 20/20, but I never got on the Brett or Hay trains and then, it just so happens that they go out on the same night – Double Eviction Night. I didn’t predict, specifically, that Brett and Hay would leave during the Double Eviction, but as far as the inherent boot order, it was time for Braleigh to go, sorry to say, for all the Hay and Brett fans, out there – of which, there are many.

Since we’re on the subject of self-calls, Sam is still in the game – and Brett is gone. Sam has broken my heart, over and over, this season – but like a loving girlfriend or a worried mother, I keep coming back, to her. I am not ready to say she’s consciously playing the game again – but she is still, in a way, playing the game.

JC is scared; he’s rightfully distancing himself from Brett. But Tyler was eying both JC and Brett, for extinction – Tyler just took out Brett, because Brett was the bigger target, relative to JC. JC should be shaking in his boots, because he may go next – even before Sam. Sam was in my original Final Five, and despite all her cockamamie antics, Sam is still in my Final Five.

Of my Final Five, only Scottie has left the game – and he even battled his way back, into the game! Angela, Kaycee, Sam and JC are still all left. As a viewer and a fan, you’re just on this weird roller coaster, with Sam, when you sign up to be a patron, of Sam’s game. For better or worse, in sickness and in health, I am a patron of poor Sam’s game. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Tyler got out his rival Brett, and with the departure of Brett, the tribe – I mean, the house – exorcised the root of many squabbles, betwixt themselves. Brett – who is gone and can no longer defend himself – is being blamed, in absentia, for, among other things: 1) turning Tyler and JC against each other (Tyler: ‘I was jealous of all the time you were spending, with Brett’ – playing into JC’s own jealousies and insecurities and getting an instant agreement, from JC) 2) threatening to take out JC (Tyler is basically saying, ‘I saved you JC; you owe me. You should be thanking me.’) 3) trying to get Sam to turn against Angela and Kaycee. It’s Brett, the scapegoat.
