The Endgame Gambit

Making it to Endgame in Big Brother is a remarkable feat, no matter how you get there. The Final Three players are usually entirely in control of the final pairing, and save for some remarkably questionable choices the folks that make it to Endgame can make some sort of case for being there.

Ultimately, Elissa and Amanda’s departures this week came down to one major factor – a severe lack of likeability.

Then, there was David.
