Diary Room: Adam Poch’s Player Rankings: Big Brother OTT – Week 8| November 23, 2016 at 2:30 PM EDT
Gobble Gobble everyone out there in Big Brother land. For the first time ever – we have house guests spending time in the Big Brother house for Thanksgiving – but for one very unlucky person, they will probably be spending Thanksgiving in a hotel (tear shed for Shelby!).
The house is down to 5 people, 4 after tonight, and the days are getting much longer in that house. We see everyone sitting around being bored, playing Jenga, eating, sleeping, but there is still some gaming left, and the most important comps still to come.
One week from tomorrow – WE THE PEOPLE will decide who walks away with $250K as the winner of Big Brother Over The Top – BUT FIRST – let’s take a look back on the week and see how everyone did.
Jason Roy – 5 strips of Bacon – When you get down to the final 6 – you get to play in every Veto comp – so you do control your own destiny. This week Jason was the target, but the backup plan of Kryssie or Justin going home was thwarted by the Care package. Jason was nominated and absolutely destroyed the Veto – winning it for the 3rd time this season, and the 2nd time when he was on the block. He is now one (or two) comps away from winning this season.
Let’s face it – if Jason is in the final 3 – there is a 99% chance he wins no matter who he is against. We have seen Jason’s game face all season long – and despite being the biggest target most of the season, he has navigated his way through – and kept some loyal allies on his side to help push him further. He has not played a flawless game like Derrick (S16) – but the twists this season have sure helped him along the way. At this point, this is his game to lose.
Morgan Willett – 3 strips of Bacon – Morgan finally won an HoH this week to secure her spot in the final 4 – and she unfortunately is “responsible” for her best friend going home this week. If you listened to her Live DR’s – she knew that winning against Shelby would be tough and needed her to go home, but I think she wanted it to be next week, not this week. Big Brother is a marathon, not a sprint, so her coming alive this late in the game is good for her safety, but she has no one else left to help her.
Morgan is a darkhorse for sure to win it all, but if Jason can go home next, and the LNJ fans split their votes for Kryssie & Justin, and all the Ball Smasher fans vote for her, we could see an upset on finale night. There was a little rumble last night between Justin & Kryssie to possibly get rid of Jason next, and that would open up the door for Morgan to slide into the F3. But Morgan needs to win her way there to 100% have a shot.
Justin Duncan – 1 strip of Bacon ya dig? – Justin was hand delivered the Care package this week by Shelby when she nominated Danielle last week, and he won the opportunity to compete in a challenge by himself to guarantee his spot int he final 4. After 2 hours of practicing (really????) – he got 1 chance to walk across the tight rope – and he did it successfully to punch his ticket to F4.
Some people say Justin’s shtick is getting old – but I think this is just his regular personality. He has stayed true to himself the whole time – and along the way started to figure out how to play Big Brother. He has gone back on some of his promises, which you have to do to get further – but he has not spit the venom that his alliance members have about the other side. If (once) Shelby leaves – Justin will be the one I am rooting for!
Not everyone deserves bacon this week though. Rankings continue on the next page…
