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.

How I feel about most people

Game recognizes game; rat recognizes rat.

JC has played a bang-up game. He’s definitely a Tier 2 player. But as I have mentioned, a couple of times before, JC has a real blind spot, when it comes to Tyler.

Remember, one of the #48LawsOfPower is ‘Don’t Commit to Anyone.’ This doesn’t mean don’t get married; it means don’t believe in someone, so much, that you could completely overlook the possibility that said person, might be lying to you.

JC has had an otherwise airtight, rock-solid game, but his inability to see that Tyler has a Final Two, with Kaycee and a showmance, with Angela, defies all logic, at this point.

Angela has now put JC and Sam up on the block. The hammer is coming down. Why would Tyler risk alienating Kaycee, by backdooring her, at this late stage, in the game, when they have had a bulletproof Final Two, for this entire season?

JC still doesn’t even know Level 6 exists. Heck, before yesterday, JC didn’t even know that Angela used to be a professional athlete.

There’s a ton of things that JC doesn’t know, even though he’s done so much for Tyler and Level 6. JC was Tyler’s cat’s paw. Tyler was the monkey that used JC’s paw, to get the chestnuts, out of the fire. JC is about to get burned, instead of him.

JC has put all his eggs, into Tyler’s basket! He has no one else! It’s too late to go back to Angela and Kaycee and either turn them against each other or get one of them to work with him, to get rid of Tyler.

Angela never liked JC, anyway. JC and Sam have always been friends, but their friendship hasn’t really translated into power, in the game. JC doesn’t have a paddle left, on this creek!

JC will definitely win, if he can get to the end. JC would need to win, at least, two competitions, now, just to give him a sturdy footing against the Three – Tyler, Angela and Kaycee.  Tangela and Kaycee have swept the competitions and ran the game, since almost a month ago.

It turns out that most of the Level 6 fans were Brett fans. Brett was the consummate showman, but now the Brett fans are waking up – and finally becoming Anti-Tyler. Tyler’s mask has been slipping more and more, lately. Laugh at Sam all you want, but Tyler is a snake; he’s a snitch.

My prediction, that Tyler’s ice-cold, vampire nature would rise to the surface, is coming to fruition. “Tell your friends,” indeed. Tyler better stay “two steps ahead,” because JC, Kaycee and even Sam, could still win, at this point.

always come in w. low expectations
