Big Brother 13: Where Lawon’s game went wrong

Lawon Exum - Big Brother 13

When we decided to do a rundown of each newly-evicted Big Brother 13 house guest’s game, I didn’t expect Lawon to be the focus. So this isn’t going to be as exciting as I’d like. Figuring out where Lawon’s game went wrong could be summed up in a sentence. Something like this: Lawon’s game was so nonexistent, I wasn’t even sure he knew he was playing a game. But I’ll try to give you a little more than that.

Lawon’s first mistake was not really playing the game. He was first or early out of challenges and he rarely talked game or really took sides. He just floated along more than anyone else. Then there was the whole part where he asked to be evicted because he was convinced he’d be eliminated then brought back with super powers. This game is never that easy, Lawon. And haven’t you heard that broken record called “Expect the Unexpected?”

Aside from the obvious, Lawon was also caught up in a lot of lies. Not even lies about the game, but just lies out of the blue. Shelly even said in Thursday’s episode that Lawon lied so much that she now knows what to look for when he’s not telling the truth. He would talk in circles and agree with everyone on everyone. He pretended to always know what someone was talking about. Weird.

Lawon was also kind of annoying and added no fun, excitement or drama to the game. That ridiculous screaming in the diary room wasn’t funny, despite what he must have thought. And adding “a-fied” to words like handsome didn’t quite work out. Sorry, Lawon, you weren’t able to make it happen.

If none of those things really didn’t hurt him, then maybe his fashion did. I think Lawon is a creative dresser. I didn’t mind the fro wig or the vintage suits. It was the orange crocs that really made me cringe.

Lawon seems to be a great guy and the last thing I want to do is make fun of someone, but there isn’t any game to criticize. He just wasn’t good TV and didn’t really fall into place with the other Big Brother house guests.
