Big Brother Gossip #1113: Strong As Frick


So we're now finally down to the last three players standing. Nicole, Cody, and Enzo. Who won the first of the three final HOH competitions?

Big Brother Gossip Show #1112: Four's a Crowd


It's the most important week of the Big Brother season. The HOH winner automatically finds themselves in the the final three, as does the POV who also decides the third person in that trio. Who will not make the cut? Will it be "Big Moves Yo" Enzo, the "Whiny Assassin", "Betty Broderick" Christmas, or the person who has pretty much ran the house from the very beginning (Cody)?

We quickly know that Enzo is safe, as he won the HOH competition on Thursday evening? Weirdly, despite the fact that his nominations don't really mean anything, one of the people he puts up has a hissy fit that lasts almost an entire day. Can you figure out who that is? We discuss everything that happens, including Enzo's failure to see that just possibly Christmas is correct in whose departure would help Enzo's end game. Of course, he doesn't really care.

Big Brother Gossip Show #1111: Return To Sender


Well, it finally happened. After ten weeks, Nicole Franzel finally won HOH. You'd think that would make her happy. Oh no, it doesn't. She's not happy with the time frame of her receiving her HOH basket. Then when she receives it, she's still not happy. She didn't receive all of the treats she expected. She's not happy with her letter. I mean, she's really not happy with her letter. Poor Victor, her fiance, just didn't include all the niceties that she expected. She spent all of Thursday night complaining about this form letter that we all know CBS edits before the HOH receives it.

And this doesn't end her whining. It's so hard to be HOH, you know. You have to make hard decisions. You have to spend way too much time talking to people you don't want to really talk to. But a job is a job, and she finally fulfilled her obligations by nominating Memphis and Christmas. She wants Memphis to go, but do Cody and Enzo agree with her plans? They may tell her they're cool with this, but there's a conversation that happens that questions whether they will actually follow through with this goal.

Big Brother Gossip Show #1110: Yo, That's What I'm Saying


There's actually a lot to talk about on this week's episode. First off, there is the first ever triple eviction in Big Brother history (outside of Canada, of course). Yet things didn't go exactly as planned for CBS. A production decision to take a wide shot on Julie exposed the supposed "surprise" to the houseguests that it was indeed a triple eviction night.

Then we had what actually happened during the episode. For a few seconds, it seemed like Nicole was actually going to get the boot. It didn't happen, but there was a little bit of tension that extended long after the three evictees got the boot. As predicted, Nicole certainly didn't let anybody forget what she had to go through that night. She was, after all, nominated not once but twice.

That incident also gave Cody an easy out when it comes to nominations. Certainly Christmas and Tyler had to go up. But who would vote for who? And that's where we get our title for this episode, as nobody really knows who Enzo really wants to see evicted. He tells Tyler he's got his back, but then he also says the same to Christmas. Nobody knows where Enzo's loyalties lie...except for with Cody. That's his man, yo.

Big Brother Gossip Show #1109: Tit For Tat


Yes, we had to postpone this week's episode for a day due to one of up attending a wedding. But that also means you get to hear all the details of last nights' later than usual POV competition. Yes, it was OTEV, but what happened during that comp has everybody talking.

There's also the first tints in the armor of the "beloved" Committee alliance. The quotes are included as it's never been the most fan base's beloved alliance anyway. But even those in the actual alliance have never been that devoted. Well, this week sees some severe dissension, mainly between Christmas and Dani. Will that affect this Thursday's triple eviction? Probably. Or at least we hope so.

Big Brother Gossip Show #1108: Wise Guys


On first glimpse, this week should have been pretty cut and dry. One of the three not in the giant Committee alliance was bound to be getting the axe this week. And yes, that's what ultimately will happen but things didn't happen as it was originally planned. Plus, the plan that Nicole and Dani put together to hide Nicole's vote against Ian actually worked! It caused tension between Day and David that was much more heated than anybody could possibly predict. Plus you have Memphis creating three final two's and two final three's in the course of thirty minutes!

Big Brother Gossip Show #1107: Would I Lie To You?

Once again, a week that looks like it will be cut and dry actually turns out to have some drama. And it's all because David won one of the powers last week, and he was forced to use it after being nominated by Dani. But David didn't just routinely used his power. Oh no, instead he tried to convince the house that somebody else had a power that they used on him. Needless to say, this didn't work out well for him. Yet it did create a few seeds of doubt that continue to affect the game as we went to air. You'll love the little tidbits we uncover!

Big Brother Gossip Show #1106: All I Want For Christmas

First things first. Yes we are a day later than normal. Hey, it's a holiday weekend and one of us had some family obligations on Saturday. Due to the delay, however, we are able to go deeper in the week than normal. Not only did we talk about the post-eviction episode actions in the house and the nominations of Bayleigh and Da'Vonne, we were also able to chat about the POV competition.

But that's not all. A lot of things happened on the feeds this weekend, and it wasn't all about the nominees. There's a simmering rivalry between Dani and Tyler that is bound to explode. Or is something else going to happen. We had some last minute conversations that if true could completely change the game. Could somebody else possibly be leaving?

Big Brother Gossip Show #1105: Yo Yo Enzo

First off, this week marks the premiere of the 2020 Big Brother Gossip intro!!! Please let us know what you think of it (especially if you like it). I feel like I did capture the essence of the first few weeks of the show. And definitely let me know about a certain edit that goes from Dani to Keesha. Can you spot the differences in their voices? I can't.

As far as this week's show we begin by talking about the departure of the "legendary" Janelle. We have Dani's planned "hinky" vote, and Nicole's nightlong despair over her supposedly nasty goodbye message. Janelle may be long gone, but she's still there in Nicole's mind even days after the fact.

Then we have Enzo's HOH reign. We show how Enzo is just as much of a liar as Danielle, but he's much better at hiding it. Everybody just laughs at Enzo's complaints about Danielle, David, Da'Vonne, and most of the rest of the house, but they're starting to catch on to Danielle's nefarious ways. Is she in trouble in the near future? Maybe.

Oh how much fun we had tonight, and you should also enjoy our giggling throughout tonight's episode. We thank you guys so much for listening to this show, and it also helps us out a lot if you do some simple little things like retweet this post, or any post about the Big Brother Gossip Show.

Big Brother Gossip Show #1104: Whiny Assassin

In what may be the most shocking revelation in the history of the Big Brother Gossip Show, we actually have some shocking comments to say about a member of this season's all star cast. Yes, we really do compliment one of our least-favorite cast members of all time. Guess what, though? She was the master of everything that happened last week, and her histrionics on Friday night may have set the stage for what we see in the week's ahead.

Besides our shocking revelation, we go over everything else that happened this week. The departure of Nicole Anthony, Tyler's HOH win, Danielle's behind the scenes work, and as went to record the results of this week's POV competition.

Big Brother Gossip #1103: Walking In Memphis



After a relatively boring week of feeds things finally heated up Friday night. First off, Memphis wasn't exactly happy that Christmas saved Ian in the Safety Suite competition. After all, Ian was one of Memphis' targets. The look on Christmas' face when Memphis complained to her was priceless.
Then the drama really went down when Memphis nominated David and Nicole Anthony. Despite the fact that Nicole didn't follow Memphis' request of playing in the Safety Suite and he used that in his nomination speech, Nicole broke down because she felt betrayed. But then David also broke down in tears. But was it planned. We play some clips that indicate that may indeed be the case.
There are two other major themes of the evening. One is the anger and lack of trust that Memphis' alliance members have in him because he refrains from loudly babbling over and over his plans. That leads to the other theme of Danielle being...well, a brat. Besides a great gift of being able to lie on demand, she also just can't handle people doing whatever she wants at the moment she wants it done. Could this lead to the demise of her alliance with Memphis?

Big Brother Gossip Show #1102: Manic Panic

For years and years, we've complained about the fact that Big Brother didn't allow us to get the feeds for a full week after they entered the house. This year they've apparently listened to our complaints and not only did they turn on the feeds right away but the season premiere was live!

Obviously that means we have a lot to cover, which explains why we have what is probably the longest episode ever. But there's so much to cover. We have an all star cast that is surprisingly willing to talk about anything and everything. There's so much tea spilled in these episodes. And there's actually some game play, as some old school players are targeted by a new school HOH. The feeds have been nothing but great fun!

Big Brother Gossip Show #1101: Season Premiere

Just a few days ago, CBS announced that Big Brother was back. And it's an all stars season! While CBS has not officially announced the cast, we have some behind the scenes info on who may be involved who may be entering the house. It's so much fun to get the trio back together and talk about what we think may happen this season!

I Played a Sequester Mini and I Liked It.

Several weeks ago as I was on the verge of going stir crazy I saw some rumblings about an event coming up a few days later that would pit Big Brother USA alumni vs Big Brother Canada vets.  It was for a game called Sequester created and moderated by Big Brother 17 cast member Audrey Middleton.

Sequester at its most basic is a 'vote off the island' type of game with elements seen in Survivor and Big Brother but also with twists and turns that are totally unique.  I recalled one version of Sequester being promoted several years ago and that version lasted about a week and to play you had to log on for a couple hours every night.  For me it was too time consuming to invest in.  However the version of Sequester that was being played with Big Brother alumni is called a Mini and is completed in one night.  This was much more my speed.


So on a Friday night in April I tuned in to SequesterAccess.com and watched 20 former Big Brother players spend about 6 hours eliminating each other until a winner was crowned.  I won't spoil it for you because you can actually watch the event on the Sequester Replay Page.

My reaction in a tweet from that night sums it all up for me by comparing it to Big Brother, "It had the rush of a live double eviction / endurance competition and aftermath."  While there were down times there was also times where multiple conversations were going on at once and you could not keep track.

I immediately signed up to be a "Patron" for Sequester, which happens to be requirement if you'd like to be able to play in a Mini yourself.  I didn't initially intend to play as I've always kept a low profile when talking about Big Brother but after a couple of days of thinking about it I decided to throw caution to the wind and actually apply to play.  Thus I found myself recording what I hoped wasn't too embarrassing a video for the application and crossing my fingers.

Less than two weeks later I found myself sitting in a virtual "room" with three other people for an hour but we couldn't talk to each other.  This is when everything is being set up for the start of the game.  We all had to shut off our phones on camera and were under strict instructions to NOT use any form of social media for the rest of the night, or at least until / if we were eliminated from the Mini.



After what seemed like an eternity Audrey came on and welcomed all the viewers (I think we had about 2,000 viewers over the course of the night, the Big Brother Mini had over 5,000).  She then played all of the intro videos we had recorded, as we watched we had only seen the three other players from our own rooms (there are five rooms in all to start for a total of 18-20 players).

Once all the videos have been shown the game is on.  While the home viewer can see every room and pick which one to listen in on, the players can only be in one at the time and can't tell who is in any other room.  Its a mad scramble to form alliances and keep yourself safe.  I immediately suggested a final four alliance with my pre-show "roommates" Jacob, Emma and Daniel, and they readily agreed, or at least they seemed to.  We then clicked our mice and headed off to other rooms to socialize and try to see who's name was being thrown about.  As the 'old guy' I was on a few peoples lips as I expected so I did my best to meet as many people as I could to hopefully make a good impression and avoid being the first out.  After about 10 minutes (the length of a round varies), Audrey tells everyone to MUTE and the voting commences.


I'll spare you a replay of the entire night but you can actually see my game on via a direct link HERE.  I will say I did better than I expected, a lot of it stemming from good luck.

Many of the rounds have interesting twists such as the person with the 2nd highest votes is evicted, or you can only vote for someone you haven't voted for before. Most nights also feature a round called 'safety chain' in which one randomly selected person is safe and then gets to choose someone else to be safe  and  so on and so on until the last person is (usually) eliminated.  Audrey mixes the order of the rounds up and doesn't play the same rounds each night so you are never sure what you'll see next.

Audience participation is also encouraged with the YouTube Channel chat participants voicing their wants and needs ("More Drama!!" "No Floating!") and Twitter polls to determine certain twists.

And yes, there is even a way to keep yourself safe if you are lucky.  Every once in a while there is a chance to earn / win a "Locus of Safety" (LOS) which may be  used to save yourself or others if you choose.  The LOS also can keep you from being "dragged" which is an occasional twist where the player that is voted out gets to take another with them.  There is also a "Wheel of Misfortune" - that comes into play when the players fail to evict each other, usually due to being unable to break a tie vote.

In the end you get a final two facing off in front of a jury of the last seven players voted out, they come back to ask questions or just tell the final two off, its their decision.  Then there is a vote and a winner is crowned.  No prizes, not trophy's, but the admiration (jealousy?) of your Mini-Mates is assured.

We finished our Mini after 1am Eastern time (currently they begin at 8pm ET) and I couldn't go to sleep until after 4am I was so wired. Its truly amazing how welcoming the Sequester community has been and I've gained loads of new friends through the experience.  I've watched almost every Mini since I was on and am looking forward to the one this coming Saturday that will involve 20 former Survivor Alumni!  It should be a blast.  There is also a "regular' Mini on Friday.

If you want more information you can check our SequesterAccess.com, or Follow @SequesterAccess on Twitter.  Still better become a Patron and try out Sequester for yourself!

Update: I have since played in a second Mini on 5/30 - you can check that out here.
