'Big Brother' 22 Recap: Nicole Didn’t Reign Supreme (10/15/2020)

Post by: Linda Martindale 15 October, 2020

Good evening all and welcome to Big Brother #22.  Well, we’re down to the final five (yes!).  The only problem is:  Who will leave the house tonight.  During Wednesday evening, they kept flipping their thoughts and when I checked Twitter after 5:00, the system had crashed.  So, I’m not sure where they decided to place the vote tonight.

PRE-VOTE

After another retell of the “Wise Guys” and the same old repetitive, boring themes, we get a recap of the week.  Since it’s boring – er – been told before, I won’t waste the space again.  Since Enzo and Cody played “waffle ball” last night with who to go, I just want to get to Tyler’s arrival at Jury House and forget about these clowns.  Wait a minute!  Kaysar is surprising these house guests.  It may be good after all. 

Julie welcomes all and tells us that the “Root” alliance controls the vote.  If you don’t know, that’s Enzo and Cody.  Julie asks which “wise guy” is the wiser and I’m thinking:  wise guy, Julie, don’t you mean “clueless.”  Christmas promises to do the dirty work for Nicole.  Memphis feel confident that they’ll keep him around.  Enzo is happy that Nicole didn’t use the PoV. 

Oh, and they’re eating — again.  Girls sharing ideas.  Later, Cody and Memphis playing pool.  Memphis of course squeals to Cody that Christmas planned to back door him.  I guess that Memphis hasn’t learned yet that talking like that shows what you would do.  Of course, since you did it too, Memphis, Cody knows all about it.  Memphis then tries to play Enzo and get that vote.  (Can I take a nap now?)  So who is the more gullible and liable to give Memphis a vote?  Well, we’ll have to put up with more filler to find out.

Jury House

Tonight, Tyler joins the jury.  Dani thinks it will be Tyler and he joins the group.  Dani calls jury the ‘grave yard of hopes and dreams.’  Tyler tells them he’s ready to share.  He has a video which all watch.  They’re surprised at Tyler’s time at the PoV.  Tyler tells them about his final deals.  Dani is analyzing it and I think she is disgusted.  Kevin says that he’s changing his view of who is running the house and it’s Cody.  Da’Vonne sees Enzo playing strategic.  Da’Vonne asked Tyler about the “Black Lives Matter” issue.  She asks was it strategic.  He says it wasn’t strategic.  He was upset about them being up and saw it as being sold out (I guess by the others).  Da’Vonne and Tyler make peace with a hug.  Da’Vonne is happy that Tyler was sincere and that makes her sure of where his heart was.  They’re both happy that it has worked out between them.  He’s hoping for a great friendship.   By the way, their view is beautiful.

The Jury House gets a message which Dani finds in the back yard.  They have a video of their “lives.”  Kevin gets a message from his husband.  David gets a message from his puppy (and dad).  Ian gets a message from Mary Ellen.  Da’Vonne gets to see her daughter who tells her that she misses her.  She immediately breaks down in tears.  Dani offers comfort.  Tyler is next with a video from Angela.  He breaks down and she sends love and encouragement.  Finally, Dani gets to see Dom and her daughter (and dogs).  The little girl is talking and telling Dani they miss her.   Dani cries also.  (Wonder if this means the BB house won’t see theirs???)

Elimination

Well, no Kaysar yet but he’ll be involved in the HoH.  Julie goes to the house and talks to the nominees.   Christmas gives the usual.  Memphis asks to be kept around (and joked so he could restart Cody).  The voting starts with Cody first.  By a vote of two to zero, Memphis is toast (I mean gone from the house).  Memphis last words in the house were:  “Good luck!  You’re going to need it.” 

He joins Julie on stage where she asks him if he was blindsided and he admits he was.  Memphis tells Julie that he came in this time meaning to win.  He feels that they cut him because they didn’t see him as an asset.  Julie asks if he made the right decision for his game.  He thinks he should have made it to final three.  It’s a game, Memphis tells us, but he feels blindsided.  He kept true to the alliances to the end.  Memphis said he wouldn’t take Christmas to the end but Cody for he felt he would beat him.  His good-bye messages from Christmas was that she loved playing with him.  Nicole’s speech is general so no big reveal.  Enzo said it would have helped his game but others wanted him gone.  Cody tells him that he found out about the two Wise Guys group and had been working with Enzo since day one. Memphis tells Julie he had a game plan that he wanted to stick to but in the end it didn’t work out for him.  (By the way, if anyone wants to start an alliance, now may be the time.  They mentioned that the show would have ANOTHER season to bore us to tears!)

HoH Competition

Kaysar is helping in some way with the HoH competition.  This may be interesting so here we go.  This week’s HoH starts in the living room.  All are told to gather and Julie congratulates them.  She tells them that a former All-Star has news.  He’s outside at a chess board.  Kaysar announces a game they played during his season. It’s called “Knight Moves.”  They will be on the chess board.  Winners will play in the next HoH also.  Cody looks scared.  They’re told the competition will begin shortly (hopefully after they go to bed!). Hmm! Maybe this is why they only got a backgammon board. He! He!
