Welcome to my second Big Brother recap! Tonight I am reviewing Season 20, Episode 2. Original Airdate: June 28, 2018.
A video recaps last night's events, where Swaggy C defeated Angela in a competition to win immunity for 8 of the 16 Houseguests. Swaggy C selected the 8 people he came into the house with, which upset Kaitlyn and Angela because they thought their two groups had an alliance. Meanwhile, Kaycee must wear the "Pinwheel of Doom" and Sam must control an actual robot.
No live intro from Julie Chen, as we pick up right where we left off last night. Angela is pissed at Swaggy's betrayal. Scottie is thrilled to be safe. Robot Sam is scared that she will be the first evicted because she's a robot. Angela and Kaitlyn talk shit about Swaggy in the pantry and Swaggy overhears them and eavesdrops for a second. "They're idiots," Swaggy says. That night, Kaitlyn meditates and realizes Swaggy was looking out for himself, and apologizes to Swaggy for getting upset. She wants good vibes, and Swaggy appreciates that she is coming forward.
It's the next day and everyone is getting used to the BB House, i.e. working out and tanning in swimsuits at the pool. For those who don't enjoy working out or tanning, Kaitlyn instructs yoga sessions. Sam is allowed to temporarily become her human self again. JC misses the robot because he thinks it's sexy.
It's time for the first Head of Household competition of the summer. The competitors must walk across a balance beam, grab a ball, walk back, and place the balls in a container with someone else's name. If anyone falls, they lose the balls they've put in and must start over. Sam is the first eliminated, followed by Steve, then Kaitlyn, Winston, Angela, then JC. It comes down to Tyler and Bayleigh, with Tyler winning, meaning Tyler wins the Head of Household and has to elect
Back in the kitchen, everyone congratulates Tyler. Steve is unhappy with his historically bad performance. Swaggy and Kaitlyn plot to take Angela out since she's an athletic threat. Sam breaks down in front of Rachel, feeling like nobody likes her. She feels shunned because of the robot thing. Rachel encourages her to speak about her safety with Tyler. Tyler doesn't trust Bayleigh. Winston, Rachel, and Angela have a discussion and try to get Kaycee on their side. Winston also recruits Brett, and the ultimate goal is for all of them to get Tyler on their side to form a mega-team of 6.
Winston speaks with Tyler about the alliance, but Tyler doesn't like the options for elimination that leaves him with. Sam is about to speak to Tyler but is forced to become a robot again. RoboSam speaks to Tyler in the kitchen and lets her feelings out about how she feels alone. Tyler says she's not an outcast and that she isn't the target. Tyler feels bad for Sam and doesn't think he can put her up for eviction.
Tyler speaks with Kaitlyn, Rockstar, and Faysar and they recommend targeting Winston and Angela. Swaggy comes into the room and recommends the same since putting up weak people will be too easy. Tyler sees right through this pitch and sees that Swaggy wants Angela out.
Now it's Bayleigh's turn to speak with Tyler, and she thinks the two have bad blood. Bayleigh recommends Tyler keep the most heat off of him as possible and nominate Sam and Steve. Tyler thinks she's part of the Swaggy alliance and is debating putting Bayleigh up for eviction.
It's time for Tyler to choose his nominees for eviction. He pulls out the keys for RoboSam and Steve. Both are frustrated at being nominated so early. Tyler reveals he did it because it was the best move for him to be in everyone's good graces. Swaggy is mad Tyler has no balls.
I thought the eviction ceremony would be tonight but it looks like they're holding off for a few episodes. Sunday is the first BB App Store episode, and you can watch Big Brother After Dark on POP! TV at 1am EST! If I recap the Sunday episode, cool, but it might not be likely, so I'll return with another recap next week!
And last but not least, I promised at least one raunchy screencap or photo per review, and since there are no live feeds yet, enjoy Angela in a bikini from her introduction during the premiere. (hidden behind a link to keep this column work safe)
