HGs were lingering in the kitchen after an early wake-up call to get ready for a busy day with this new Hacker Comp and an early round of nominations. Suddenly on the small screens, which we rarely see in use, a new image pops up. Or at least it was new to everyone but Tyler.
“The Cloud” icon and title suddenly appears on the small screens but it is turned sideways. Scottie jumps up from the kitchen and rushes to the living room’s big screen to see what’s going on since it seems like a typical surprise reveal of the next event. Nope, nothing there but “Nominations Today” on the big screen but again on this little screen is the same sideways image. He runs back to the kitchen where HGs are gathered with their head turned sideways to get a clear view.

At that moment the Feeds cut to Fish, the typical temporary screen used for brief downtimes while Loops featuring past seasons fill the longer times for competitions, meetings, etc. That was at 9:35 AM BBT this morning and finally came back after nearly two and a half hours of being down.
In the kitchen when this happened was Scottie, RS, Kaycee, Bayleigh, and the man with the power himself, Tyler. Ugh. Tyler plays it cool and acts just as confused as the rest of them but I’d guess he was sweating at that point.
I don’t believe Tyler invoked his power with Angela at the helm as the new HOH. He hasn’t mentioned this power to anyone else and doesn’t appear to be worried at the moment, so no I don’t think it was Big Brother announcing it had been used. Especially consider the image was misaligned on the screen as it appeared sideways. It just doesn’t make sense.
As long as Tyler keeps his mouth shut, just as he’s already been doing, then he should be just fine, but now it’s definitely going to be something folks are wondering about and could be anticipating coming in play this season.
Reminder: The Cloud Power App & how it works
Someone screwed up and we just now got Feeds back after 2 hours and 20 mins of downtime which was in part for this week’s nominations ceremony. Still waiting to see what was happening there or what fallout there might be for this power and the HGs already heightened paranoid just ripe for something else like this to pile on top.
What do you think of the situation? Was it an error or something else? Would Tyler really put this power in to play when things are looking good for him this round? Share your thoughts below.
