Survivor 35: Heroes v Healers v Hustlers Episode 1 Recap

survivor-35_-_h_2017

It’s that magical time of the year where Survivor finally turns after a long summer of Big Brother. Survivor has been one of my favorite shows since I first watched it (All-Stars was my first season) and has been with me since. So this season, I will be doing recaps and posting my rankings on Sunday. So without therefore ado, let’s begin!

The Marooning: We begin with Jeff Probst doing one of his classic stunts by letting him stand on something dangerous. He tells us that 18 strangers will be stranded on the island and how only one person will win it all. We cut to a boat with all of our castaways as they await their adventure. Jeff comes out and introduces the season theme, heroes v healers v hustlers. Heroes are respected for their courage and ideals that they live by. He asks Ben (who’s a veteran) if he thinks being a veteran makes him a hero. He says no and I swear that’s one of Jeff’s biggest turn-ons when soldiers say they’re not heroes but just doing what’s right. Healers are idolized with helping people in pain, whether it’s physical or emotional. The standout has to be Mike, the sex doctor (I wonder how his business cards look?). He already seems like a funny character and I can’t wait to see where he goes. Hustlers are appreciated for their hard work in their everyday life. Ryan (the bellhop) already fits into the Cochran role.

They all get their buffs and already have their first sort of challenge. In a short amount of time, the tribes have to gather all the materials they need to survive. Then they have to row to the beach where there’s an urn 15 feet high. The first person to light their urn wins a big fire, second place just some flint, and the last place gets nothing. Jeff tells them to go and it’s utter chaos. Before they jump off, Ryan notices a package that says secret advantage on it. He picks it up and goes with his Hustler tribe. Heroes and Hustlers are close but the Hustlers get fire. Heroes get flint while the Hustler gets nothing.

Healers: As they swim to their new shore, they see a big huge bonfire that seems more like Burning Man than a fire pit. Joe tells all the girls that he’s happy to be with the beautiful girls while he admires Cole. Jessica is just drooling over him as he describes his body. Now Joe quickly becomes a clone more like Tony with his erratic behavior and telling us that he’ll do anything to win.

Mike tells us that his 10-year-old son gave him advice about going for the idol. He tries to find it but had no luck. Joe gets suspicious of Mike and tells him up front that he’s a suspect. He tries to see if Mike has an idol but it just turns him into a nervous wreck. This drives a wedge between them as they both don’t trust each other.

Heroes: The Heroes start working on their flint and get some success. They start gathering up materials for their shelter. Ashley thinks it’s awesome to be a Hero but the gloves come off when you play Survivor. She quickly forms an alliance with the “Cowboy” and JP. Ben (former NFL player) is joined up by JP to be their fourth in the alliance but he’s suspicious.

At night, everyone is bonding but Alan is very suspicious of JP and Ashley. He goes to JP and point black tells him if he has an idol. JP tells him but that doesn’t help Alan’s paranoia. Alan knows he looks like the crazy guy but at least it will be a target on their back. Ashley is pissed at him because he will ruin the majority alliance and might have to vote him off. Even with JP stripping to prove he doesn’t have an idol, Alan is very suspicious.

Hustlers: Even without fire, the Hustlers are for lack of a better word, hustling to get a shelter. Patrick tells them that there was a clue on the boat and tries to see who got it. Well, Ryan has it in his pants (hey now) and goes off to read it. This advantage is a super immunity idol that’s good for the first tribal council. Even after the votes are read, the idol can still be used. If the Hustlers win immunity, he has to give it to one person on the losing tribe.

Ryan thinks Devin would be a good fit for a connection. He tells Devin about the advantage and be honest with him. Even if they go to tribal, Ryan will use the super idol on Devin. Great move by Ran to solidify trust in a future ally and hopefully will pay off for him.

Immunity: It’s time for the first immunity challenge of the season. The tribes have to race up a cargo net to the tower. They will have to push a cart and once everyone is in, they can go down the hill. Once down, there will be 3 different table mazes with the first tribe getting the first pick. They must transport the move towards the end. Once at the maze, two people from each tribe will have to navigate three balls into the hole. First 2 tribes to do this win immunity while the losing tribe will go to Tribal Council. Also, Jeff tells everyone that tie votes are back this season.

The challenge starts with Heroes being the first ones at the cart while the two other tribes right behind them. It’s a very close race with the Heroes getting the first pick at the maze, Hustlers get the second pick while the Healers are stuck with the last maze. It’s still close to everyone starting their maze. The Healers get the trick of it and start getting balls in their holes. Everyone is tied up with 2 and the Healers are the first tribe to win immunity. It’s super tight between the 2 tribes as the third ball is close to each of their holes. Hustlers get it in and win immunity while the Heroes are sent to tribal. Krissy (from the Heroes tribe) starts to dry heave which makes Ryan give the super idol to her.

Tribal Council: The Heroes are disappointed with their loss and Ashley is worried about Alan. Now the two older people, Katrina and Chrissy, are up on the chopping block because they’re the 2 older people in the tribe. Alan wants to work with Katrina and Chrissy. Ben is stuck in the middle if they should go with the “mom squad” or JP and Ashley. At tribal, Alan is already talking about his suspicious over JP and Ashley. They get into it as Ashley denies this showmance rumors. The voting begins as Jeff reads the votes. It’s a 5-1 for Katrina to be voted out but there’s a pause if Chrissy will use the idol. She doesn’t use it and Katrina is out of the game.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

kingsmanposter_0

Regarding sequels, it’s interesting what elements of the earlier film that a director will take or leave it. As discussed in my earlier review (click here to check it out), Kingsman has many elements that make the movie standout. With Kingsman: The Golden Circle in theatres, we’ll take a look at this highly anticipated sequel. So is this sequel a worthy addition to the Kingsman franchise or a royal mistake?????

Directed by Matthew Vaughn, Kingsman: The Golden Circle follows Eggsy (Taron Egerton) who’s adjusted to being an agent of Kingsman. After a devastating attack on the organization that feels him and Merlin (Mark Strong) left, they resort to going to their American counterpart, the Statesman. They team up to take down Poppy Adams (Julianne Moore), a drug lord that has a plan that will cause chaos around the world.

Now the Kingsman franchise is primarily a wild homage to the James Bond franchise. So it’s interesting that now they put less attention on that aspect and more on the Rated R concept. We still have some of those elements like our villain, Poppy Adams, who has her own style. She grew up with an appreciation of 50’s America that more in the vain of Happy Days and Pleasantville. This makes her character and layout a lot more interesting while Julianna Moore brings some great balance of pleasantness and terror.

Every other element is dropped for the American counterpart of the Kingsman, the Statesman. While they were good, it feels like there was a lot more you could have done with it. The concept is so great with their operations being held at an Old Forrester distillery. Everything with America is so over the top but we don’t get to see a lot of it. Besides Halle Berry and Pedro Pascal, the other Statesman don’t get a lot of time. Jeff Bridges and Channing Tatum feel more like extended cameos then supporting roles. Even Elton John, who’s by far the best part, has a bigger role than them. Maybe there will be a Statesman spinoff in the future.

Looking at the Kingsman itself, it’s a welcome feeling that they’re back. Both Taron Egerton and Mark Strong immediately step back into their roles. Now it’s disappointing that they dropped the focus on the Kingsman organization but the characters are still good. Now since it’s been in the advertising a lot, Colin Firth is back. While the way in which they explain how he survived feels cheap, it doesn’t matter because Harry is amazing.

The big problem with the Golden Circle is the pace. The movie is 2 hours and 17 minutes which is too long. Some sequences should have been cut out and actually would have been better. Instead, they drag out the movie which feels very unnecessary. If you did have that much time, why not focus on the Statesman instead or Eggsy’s mom. She’s only a brief cameo despite having a big focus in the last movie.

Overall, while not as good as the first movie, The Golden Circle is still a pretty good movie. The elements of the first Kingsman movie are still here and despite lack of focus, the new American elements are pretty interesting. Some scenes should have been cut but nonetheless, it’s still an entertaining flick. Also, Elton John is amazing and by far the scene stealer here.

Grade: B-

 

Kingsman: The Secret Service Review

Kingsman-Secret-Service-poster

When thinking about the James Bond franchise, there’s a lot of parodies and homages. Example. Recently we have the KINGSMAN franchise as the new homage. With the sequel coming out, it’s time to look back at the first Kingsman movie. But is it a worthy start or a misfire?

Directed by Matthew Vaughn, Kingsman follows Eggsy (Taron Egerton) who lives a chaf lifestyle in London. His father died young who actually was a part of the Kingsman organization, a secret spy program. After getting in trouble, Eggsy calls Harry Hart (Colin Firth) who is an agent in the Kingsman program. Eggys trains to be an agent while Valentine (Samuel L Jackson) develops a plan to get rid of humanity because of climate change.

With Kingsman, they took homage from the Roger Moore era. That era was known for its campiness and … So Matthew Vaughn took all of that and crank it up to ten. It’s perfectly insane that makes this movie so much. From the action to the story itself, there’s so much craziness in here. The violence is so over the top but not distasteful. Take the scene when Harry fights a Western Baptist like church. Sure everyone is killed in really graphic ways but you can’t take your eyes off the screen. Not in a train wreck sense but you want how each action will top itself. That feeling makes this movie really thrilling

This cast does a great job with making Kingsman great. Taren Edgeton makes for a great hero as we are introduced to the Kingsman through his eyes. He makes for a great underdog even know he’s basically great at everything. Personally, the story with his mother really made the heart of this movie. That raises actual stakes than the whole world being purged. Colin Firth is a great mentor and easily is the most badass. There’s a sense of suaveness but ruthless behind the glasses. But with our heroes, we need an effective bad guy which Samuel L Jackson provides. He’s not just a standard bad guy as Valentine is actually effective with his reasoning. It’s a morally wrong plan but he’s so charming and has his quirks. The lisp and ad version to violence are his quirks like how Bond’s villains has his own. Mark Strong as the M figure, name, was pretty fun. Also, Sofia Burtelle as Valentine henchwoman was great. Besides being badass with her knife legs, she felt less like a henchwoman and more like an equal.

Kingsman: The Secret Services is a great homage to the Roger Moore era of the Bond franchise. It nails down the campiness but cranks it up to a hard R level. Everyone does a great job and makes this movie a very entertaining flick.

Grade: B

 

mother! Review

Mother-Poster-Rosemarys_1200_1789_81_s

Often there is a movie that comes along that is so critically divided that you either love it or hate it. That movie is mother! which is dividing up audiences everywhere. It has a 65% on Rotten Tomatoes (as of this review) but an F on CimenaScore. So is this movie so bad, so good, or maybe somewhere between?

Directed by Darren Aronofsky, the movie begins with a poet (Javier Bardem) and his wife (Jennifer Lawrence) at their secluded home. He is struggling with writer block while she tries to perfect the house. Out of the sudden, a stranger (Ed Harris) rings the doorbell and stays with them. Everything starts to spiral out of control and that’s all the summary you need. With the plot, it would be spoiling everything but it’s hard to really write down.

For the first two acts of mother! there wasn’t any extreme reaction from at all. It was just okay but at least there was some investment. It felt like a little psychothriller mystery unflowing with these characters. With Jennifer Lawerence’s character, we fully relate to the anxiety that she faces but then all of that is quickly drained away. As the second act ended, the perception from the trailers that this would be a horror intense story was dashed. Looking back, all the trailers were very misleading as this movie is just filled with metaphors and allegories.

With the third act, I’ve never had a movie sour my experience more than this one. Those metaphors are so painfully obvious that it’s ridiculous for an analyze. Why not just have a big neon sign saying all of the meanings? It’s just images and images of nonstop pretentious from Aronofsky. For spoiler’s sake, you’ll have to find out for yourself but it’s not worth it and you’ll get it in the first 10 minutes. Then the movie won’t just end as you think it’s finally over but it keeps on going and going. Honestly, I thought about just walking out of the end but decided to stick around just to see how it ends. Well to sum it up, all I felt was anger and disappointment.

Now this movie isn’t all negative as there are some positive elements. As mention before, Jennifer Lawerence gives a pretty good performance. She really carries this movie and made me feel for her. Javier Bardem was fascinating to watch but his role didn’t offer a lot. The design of the house itself was very beautiful and the lack of a score was very efficient. Every creak coming from the wood was a nice little touch but if there was anything scare then it would be much better.

Even with trying to find something positive, mother! is a pretentious, clumsy, failure of a movie. The metaphors and allegories are so on the nose that you’ll see it a mile away. By the time the movie ends, your intelligence will feel insulted and bitter. Just see any other movie than this one.

Big Brother 19 Episode 37 Recap

Big_Brother_16_(U.S.)_Logo

Previously on Big Brother: At the final five, the main target is Alex but she thinks that herself and Paul are safe this week. After Paul won the veto, she thought he was going to use it on her. However, Paul confessed to her that she will be going home this week because she will win the comps. The vote ended up in a tie and Josh voted Alex out of the house. Paul won the Head of Household and will go to the final three.

Nominations: The episode begins with the nomination ceremony which at final four doesn’t mean a lot. What really matters is who wins the Veto because they can choose who’s going home as they will be the sole vote. Paul nominates Kevin and Josh with the goal of getting Kevin out. Since he’s HOH, the blood won’t be on his hands. Kevin thinks he’s safe with Paul because they had a bond since Day 1. Christmas is scared that Kevin will win the veto and be the only vote.

BB Jury House: We cut to the jury house where Matthew joins Cody, Elena, and Mark in the house. Cody gives his thoughts on Matthew as he is a “giant pussy” which makes me miss Cody even more. They all see the events of Matthew’s eviction and all comment on how dumb he is. One week later, they’re all guessing who’s coming in and it’s Jason. Everyone sees the events of the week and are baffled when everyone threw the HOH. Raven comes in since she was the 2nd target in the double eviction. She explains that Alex had no clue about Jason’s blindside. Then Raven declares herself the puppet master and Elena just laughs at her. The final person to come in is Alex and they all watch the tape. Jason calls out Maven and everyone joins in on how worthless they were in the house. Mark comments that if Raven is the puppet master then why didn’t she do anything in the house.

Back to the Veto: The houseguests play their final Veto for the season. For each round, every houseguest must turn their dial to the correct day. The last player to get it right will lose power. If they lose power three times, they’re out. In the first round, Kevin gets it right but in the second round, he loses. Quickly, Kevin gets out of the competition but still trusts Paul. Christmas gets all of her power drained which leaves Josh and Paul left. Paul wins the Veto and has the power to control the vote this week. Yes, he’s HOH but someone is going to do what he says.

Eviction: On eviction night, we have a quick Veto Ceremony and Paul chooses not to use the Veto which means Christmas is the sole vote this week. She votes out Kevin which means he is the latest person evicted from the Big Brother house. He’s such a class act and leaves with style. During the interview, he says that being evicted isn’t a shock and Paul not using the Veto doesn’t upset him.

Big Brother 19 Episode 36 Recap

Big_Brother_16_(U.S.)_Logo

Previously on Big Brother: Alex and Jason were blindsided in the double eviction as Jason went home. Alex won the HOH and got out Raven as Paul convinced her not to go after Christmas and Paul. Josh is realizing that Paul is playing a double game and might take his shot at him. He won the HOH and put up Alex and Kevin on the block. Tonight, we have a surprise eviction as Julie warns the houseguests.

Conflicted Josh: Josh is thinking about backdooring Paul because he thinks about the final two and how he might lose. Alex retreats to the apple room where she cries with Josh but’s all ruse. She is pissed and wants to play dirty now but Josh is trying to rile her up because he wants Paul out. However, it does work because now Josh is crying (but what else is new). What should worry Josh is Christmas telling him that she won’t be in the final two with him. This should be alarm bells ringing so loud like the pots and pans banging together. Then Paul slaps him over the mistake of confronting a fake crying Alex.

BB Comics: It’s time for the Veto and we are continuing the theme of the week, BB Comics. The houseguests go out to the backyard to find comic book covers of themselves. Now Christmas can’t compete in this competition because of the zip line. The goal is for each houseguest to use the zip line and see all of the comic book covers. Using their memory, they have to place the covers in the exact order. However, there are decoy covers that won’t count if they’re used. The houseguest with the fastest time wins the Veto. With 12 minutes, Paul wins and Alex is excited because now they’re both safe.

Friendship is a Lie: Paul actually does feel bad for cutting Alex and decides to tell her the truth now isn’t of blindsiding her. He tells her that he can’t use the Veto on her because she’s a beast. There are no fake tears here, Alex is hurt that Paul would betray her even after she threw a bunch of competitions for him. He actually feels remorse and has a three-way hug with Josh and Christmas while he sobs. At the veto ceremony, Alex begs for him to use it but he doesn’t use it.

Eviction: Before we get to the voting, the nominees have some last words. Kevin give some shout outs and Alex gives a tearful speech while telling everyone to vote for American’s Favorite Player. It’s time for vote

  • Christmas votes for Alex
  • Kevin votes for Kevin

We have a tie which means Josh will cast the last vote. He tearfully explains that he must vote out Alex. With that, Alex is evicted from the Big Brother house. She grabs her coke and walks out of the house. During her interview, she explains that she should of listen to Jason instead.

HOH: This HOH is called What the Bleep and it involves the houseguests answering questions based on what other people said this season.

  • Round 1: Everyone gets a point.
  • Round 2: Paul gets a point.
  • Round 3: Everyone gets a point.
  • Round 4: Paul gets a point.
  • Round 5: Paul gets a point
  • Paul wins.

Big Brother 19 Episode 35 Recap

Big_Brother_16_(U.S.)_Logo

Previously on Big Brother: Paul had a plan to have no blood on his hands when Jason was evicted. He got the vote to a tie and Christmas evicted Jason. Josh was skeptical about Paul but still went through with the plan. During the double eviction, Alex won HOH and put up Kevin and Raven. Josh won the veto and Raven was evicted from the house.

Double Eviction Aftermath: Paul congrats everyone on making it to the final five while we flashback to right after Jason was evicted. Paul and Josh have a “fight” which might be as badly acted as the BB Revengers. Alex is very upset and blames Jason’s eviction on Raven and Josh because Paul said so. After Raven and Kevin is nominated, Josh starts to really break down and cry hysterically on the couch. Christmas and Paul are annoyed at him because it’s a game and he shouldn’t take it personally. Before the vote for Raven, Josh decides to cast a sympathy vote and not go with the majority. After she leaves, Josh goes to cry and Alex confronts him. Paul joins Josh in tears and Alex leaves them alone. Then in a second, Paul stops crying and tells Josh they’re good. Seeing Paul change emotions that quickly has Josh scared.

Another Comp, Another Throw: Alex is shocked that not only Jason is gone but Kevin is still here. She believes that all of the control in this game was hers but now it’s all gone. Paul sees that Alex is the biggest competition target and wants her out this week. The plan is to get Josh to be HOH and get Alex out while Paul has no blood on his hands. That means Kevin has to throw the competition.

BB Revengers: It’s time for the Head of Household competition and the houseguest are shown a trailer for the BB Revengers. Past houseguests come back as superheroes and supervillains in this mock trailer. The houseguests have to answer questions about the trailer. In the first couple of rounds, Kevin gets it right which makes Paul suspicious. Then Kevin falls in line and starts to throw the HOH. In the end, Josh wins and everything is going great for Paul.

Nominations: Josh is still tempted to make his shot at Paul this week. Ultimately, Josh nominates Kevin and Alex on the block. He calls out Kevin for being a floater and Alex for being a beast at competitions. Although he’s agreeing with Paul, Josh might just take that shot this week.

Big Brother 19 Week 10 Cast Rankings

Big_Brother_16_(U.S.)_Logo

Welcome to my power rankings of Big Brother 19 where I rank the houseguests on how well they did and their place in the future. Keep in mind this isn’t based on who I like personally but strictly game based.

jason-dent-big-brother-19-200

7. Jason

It looks like the cowboy didn’t see it coming which is crazy because that’s what happened to Matthew last week. The original plan last week was for the final nominations to be Matthew and Kevin to make it seem like Kevin was the target. Now Christmas does the original plan this week and got blindsided because of that. His biggest blind spot in this game was Alex. He had some correct instincts but she immediately shut that down because of Paul’s “friendship franchise”. It’s going to be interesting to see how bitter he will be in the jury house.

raven-walton-big-brother-19-200

6. Raven

Raven seemed to me like Victoria from Big Brother 16. They were both useless in the game and were carried by the player who dominated their respective season. Nothing really to say about Raven, she was useless.

alex-ow-big-brother-19-200

5. Alex

Just like Jason, she was duped by the same plan that was hatched last week. Now I get why she didn’t put up Paul but seriously not Christmas and Josh? Christmas voted Jason over Kevin in a tie vote and she puts up Raven and Kevin? Her short stint as HOH was just terrible and unless she wins Veto, Alex will be joining Jason in the jury house.

kevin-schlehuber-big-brother-19-200

4. Kevin

Kevin didn’t really do anything expect for being the pawn. He’ll be gone at the Final Four.

christmas-abbott-big-brother-19-200

3. Christmas

She’s fully on board for Paul while Josh has his doubts. It’s the best move Christmas has if she gets taken to the end but her social game is not good. If she’s up against Josh or Paul, she’ll lose.

josh-martinez-big-brother-19-200

2. Josh

Josh is so close but far away from getting Paul out of the house. He knows what Paul is doing and is entertaining thoughts of getting rid of him. Yet like Jason, he has someone (Christmas) shutting those down because of blind loyalty for Paul. Now, his best move was the goodbye message for Jason. Throwing Paul under the bus is fantastic because Jason will be bitter at him and might poison the jury against Paul. While it’s not a guaranteed win, Josh has a better shot at winning the game.

paul-abrahamian-big-brother-19-200

1. Paul

The way that he got everyone to throw the Head of Household at Final Seven was masterful. You could say it was too cute but it did work. Then planning Jason’s exit was great and the fake fight with Josh helped be off the block when Alex was HOH. The only bad thing (that he doesn’t know) is Josh throwing him under the bus. He’s still a lock to win but it won’t be as easy as we thought.

 

IT (2017) Review

IT-2017-Movie-Poster

When the trailers were released, a lot of people commented that the new IT movie is a lot like Stranger Things. What’s funny is Stranger Things took a lot from Stephen King books like Stand By Me because of the youth elements. So now IT feels a bit like Stranger Things but that’s a good thing. What that show did so well blend in those elements with some genuinely chilling moments. This movie is not just a good horror movie but a great coming of age story.

Directed by Andrés Muschietti, IT is set in Derry, Maine where kids are rapidly disappearing. Pennywise the Dancing CLown (Bill Skarsgård) takes the kids and one day, he takes Georgie. Georgie’s brother, Bill (Jaeden Lieberher), sets out with his friends and tries to find Pennywise. All of them must face their own fear and stop Pennywise from hurting more children.

This movie has two distinct type of stories, the coming of age and the horror, that meshes beautifully together. The reason this movie is considered a coming of age story is that the Losers Club is forced to grow up thanks to Pennywise. When they’re faced with their own personal fears, it challenges them. All of the fears make sense for each character and are both scary but sad as well. A problem in some horror movies isn’t the monsters but who the monster is after. If there isn’t any connection with those characters than the movie will suck. Not only do you care about the Losers Club but you’ll feel like you’re a part of them. I looked at my watch to see what time was left, not that the movie was boring but I wanted more time with these characters.

Every single kid is cast perfectly with many highlights. Jaeden Lieberher as Bill was such a fantastic leader for this gang. He’s the most gung-ho about getting Pennywise because of his brother. Sophia Lillis is a newcomer and definitely will be on people’s radar. Her journey of self-discovery was so fascinating to watch as it feels so realistic and relatable. Speaking of Stranger Things, Finn Wolfhard stars as Richie, their smart-ass friend. He has the right amount of humor that’s really funny but it doesn’t become overbearing. Whoever was the casting director when it came to the kids, kudos to you because you did a fantastic job.

Even with all the talk about the kids, the horror really shines. None of the scares feel cheap and doesn’t happen too often where you expect it. It’s more of a sequence than a blip of fright that’s on the screen. Yet nothing is scarier than Bill Skarsgård as Pennywise. Just as a performance, he’s so good under all of that makeup and tight suit yet he moves so well. It doesn’t feel tight and he’s very limber which leaves us some good moments. Then you hear his voice which starts out as lighthearted then quickly turn dark and scary. Overall, he’s just having so much fun being Pennywise that you can feel it and maybe have some fun with him.

If you’re looking to see a great horror movie then you need to see IT. Bill Skarsgård is so great as Pennywise and has a lot of fun scaring the Loser’s Club. Yet when you’re watching IT, you get to see a fantastic coming of age story. All of the kids in the Losers Club give amazing performances and you’ll really feel like you’re a part of the gang. It’s funny, sad, heartwarming, chilling, creepy, scary, charming, and much more. IT is in theatres now and I highly recommend you see it.

Grade: A

Big Brother 19 Episode 34 Recap

Big_Brother_16_(U.S.)_Logo

Previously on Big Brother: Paul has a plan to get in good with all of the pairs remaining in the house. His goal is for them to turn on each other while he has no blood on his hands. Christmas wins the HOH and wants to target Jason and Alex. Josh gets suspicious of Paul and realizes he has no blood on his hands. Paul wins the veto and removes Alex off the block while Kevin becomes a replacement nominee.

My Tie: Kevin doesn’t understand what they’re doing and is sad that he might go home on Thursday. Alex is excited that Kevin is finally going home but this is what Paul wants. If Kevin is uncomfortable, then Jason and Alex become more comfortable. For this eviction, the voting will come down towards a tie vote and Christmas will cast the tie breaker. Yet Josh is uncomfortable with this because all of the blood will be on his hands.

Eviction #1: Julie Chen announces that tonight will be a double eviction! No time to waste so let’s go to the vote

  • Alex votes for Kevin
  • Raven votes for Jason

  • Josh votes for Jason

We have a tie which means Christmas will cast the final vote. She votes for Jason as he becomes the latest houseguest evicted. He just storms out of here while Alex tries to say that she wasn’t involved. Paul and Josh have a “fight” while we go to Jason for an interview. He says they’re a bunch of counterfeits fell in the house and is pissed off. He has no clue what just happened. We get some goodbye messages with Josh revealing that it was Paul that got him out as well as being in an alliance with him and Christmas.

Eviction #2: The double eviction is wrapping up so let’s get to the voting.

  • Paul votes for Raven
  • Christmas votes for Raven
  • Kevin votes for Kevin

By a vote of 2-1, Raven is evicted from the Big Brother house. She sobs out of the house (let’s be honest, it’s probably fake) as Josh tries to apologize. She does a cartwheel when she gets out and has her interview with Julie. Just look at Julie’s face during the interview and it’s worth it. However, the biggest news is that there will be a Celebrity Big Brother in the winter. By God, I want Bobby Moynihan in that house.
