Big Brother 20 Episode 9 Recap: The Final Power App Is A Big One

This week’s Big Brother 20 storyline was all about the bros and how they’re in danger. But I’m not about to bury the lead this week. The big news is that incredibly powerful Power App that Bayleigh picked up in the BB App Store.

I’m left torn on this one because, on one hand that’s a pretty amazing power, but on the other hand it’s a rather unfair reward with almost too much power. I’m not going to complain, though, because it’s sure to cause some drama as long as Bayleigh uses it the way we’re all happy with. Ha.

We’ll get back to the Power App in a bit, but basically it lets Bayleigh takeover someone’s HOH and make their initial nominations. Now, on with the rest of this recap.

Sunday night’s episode picks up right after Scottie won the Head of Household competition. Scottie, via DR, explains his vote to evict Swaggy C. He just wanted to create some confusion and paranoia. OK, that makes sense I guess, but all it really did was make people paranoid about SCOTTIE. Read on.

Haleigh tells Rockstar she did not flip and that it had to be Scottie. They decide Scottie is an evil genius. Rockstar asks Fayasl who he thinks it was that voted Swaggy out. He thinks it’s Haleigh because Scottie wouldn’t flip. Rockstar tells Faysal not to be so sure of that. Haleigh goes to Fessy to swear to him that she voted to keep Swaggy. So they all now believe it was Scotty who flipped and is obviously an evil genius. “He’s probably not even a virgin,” Rockstar says.

So, needless to say, Scottie’s side of the house isn’t feeling as safe as they should be right about now.

Elsewhere, the bros are starting to sweat themselves now that Scottie is HOH. They decide they’ve got to figure out a way that they both don’t go up.

And the bros are the ones that should be sweating. Scottie lets us know that he wants to go for Winston and Brett and he’s going to make it seem like everyone else’s idea. So he gets to work and it comes together nicely. The house decides in one way or another that the bros are a definite threat And by the house I just mean Rockstar. She’s the only one who really even says actual names when Scottie asks everyone.

Of course Tyler tries to push a different agenda, but Scottie isn’t Kaitlyn, so it’s not going to be quite as easy as last week. But regardless, Tyler starts throwing Rockstar under the bus. Scottie shoots it down really fast. It doesn’t take Tyler long to realize he’s not going to be able to pull it off this week. And that’s OK, Tyler, you’ve played hard enough already. Take a freaking break!

Sam puts the final nail in the bro coffin by telling Tyler that they voted to keep her Week 1, which means they lied to Scottie multiple times about voting Steve out. Sam lets Winston know that she kind of spilled the tea, so he needs to go back to Scotty to try to clear things up. He grabs Brett in a panic and the two try to think of a new plan.

The new plan is for Winston to tell Scottie that he spent all week to convince Sam that he voted for her to stay. That’s not an earth-shattering plan, especially since he’s still confessing to Scottie that he’s a liar, but it’s all Winston could come up with. Brett gives it the ole bro try also, but he doesn’t really do much better than Winston.

It’s time for the last BB App Store! This time around it’s Haleigh who trended the least so she picks the Crapp App called Read It! That requires her to put on a Shakespeare costume, stand on a soapbox, and read from Hamlet in her best Shakespearian accent. The punishment will remain until the entirety of the book has  been read.

And it’s Bayleigh who gets the Power App! She picks Identity Theft, which means she can secretly steal the identity of the Head of Household at the nomination ceremony. That means she can secretly make their nominations and apparently the HOH cannot explain that they had nothing to do with those nominations. The power can be used up until 8 people remain in the game.

At the nomination ceremony, Scottie goes all in on his plan and nominates Brett and Winston. It’s bro vs. bro and they are not happy. Will the bros be able to figure out a way to save them both this week?
