The Revival Of A Certain Fondness

This season has, to date, entertained heavily. With a quarter of the cast gone, Big Brother 20 has become a quick fan favorite while avoiding the pitfalls that have hurt recent seasons of play. There have been lessons that Production seems to have taken to heart, lessons that – in a lesser season – have not always been considered.

With this has come a new fondness of the show and feeds, one that can be lost quite easily if Production falls upon mistakes made in the past.

Out Of The Gates

Big Brother’s first weeks can be a bit of a crap shoot when it comes to repercussions that reverberate through the game. Some seasons (Big Brother 5, as an example) have minimal repercussions that can be seen as game-changing. The eviction of Mike “The Don” did little to make major changes to the rest of the season. Other seasons have had major events occur in Week 1 that define the rest of the game – witness Paul’s return in Big Brother 19 as an example.

Big Brother 20, for its status as a rare modern “all newbie” cast, has had no less than three major events that should lead to lasting effects through the game.

Elissa Uses Veto – GinaMarie Nominated

Yet again, someone on the block won the Veto, guaranteeing its use yet again. This time, it was America’s MVP Nominee who won the power, Elissa. She was the surprise MVP Nom, probably being second choice, after Aaryn, who had already been placed on the block with Kaitlin by HOH Judd.

This week’s Veto was the traditional How Much Do You Want It? Challenge and Elissa has to sit out next week’s Veto Competition, Judd got Solitary Confinement for 24 hours, Helen has an 8pm curfew and McCrae obviously didn’t want it, as he now has an extra $5,000 in his pocket.  Not too shabby.

Kaitlyn Wins & Uses Veto – Jeremy, Aaryn & Spencer Up

After being nominated alongside Aaryn and the MVP choice, Spencer, Kaitlyn won the timed House Guest Photo Manipulation challenge and had the chance to save herself in the game…. But at what cost?

For what seems to be the first time in Big Brother History, a Showmance, a backdoor plan, and a Veto win collide. Kaitlyn won the Veto, knowing if she used it on herself her ‘man’ Jeremy would be the replacement nominee and be evicted – if she didn’t, she’d knowingly pull a Marcellas, and be voted out herself.
