Big Brother 25 Episode 8 Recap: Backdoor Plan Set In Motion

After a slimy snot-themed Head of Household competition that would make Double Dare jealous, a major backdoor plan was laid out and set into motion.

Sunday night’s episode picks up after Reilly’s eviction. And Jag, Matt and Blue are crying and all depressed. I had to ask myself if this is the 2023 Nerd Herd disguised as the cool kids. Not since Cappy (OK, not since BB11 Jessie, but Cappy fits the joke better) has someone been mourned so hard after such a short time in the BB house.

After the Reilly depression lifts a bit, the house gets right into the conversation to targt Hisam this week. Cameron has even declared Hisam “Public Enemy No. 1.”

And then it’s time for the Head of Household comp (aka which person is going to have the honor of going after Hisam this week). For this competition, one at a time, each player will take a shot at a ball, hoping to land the highest score. So a fast crapshoot they didn’t show on the live episode.

Matt is up first and scores a 10. Cory follows and lands a 20. Mecole scores a 27 and takes the lead. Red and America both score a 5, so Mecole keeps the lead. Cirie goes next and scores a 29, taking the lead. Izzy is up after Cirie and lands a 45, taking a strong lead. Felicia is up net and snags that lead right from Izzy and a score of 53.

Jag, hoping to get revege on his ally Reilly, takes his swing, but can’t beat Felicia’s 45. And neither can any of the others. Felicia remains untouched and becomes the new Head of Household. And Hisam, totally in the dark that his alliance has joined the rest of the house in turning against him, couldn’t be happier.

Felicia not only won HOH, but she won a punishment from the Homi-verse. She and someone she chooses, has to be slimed anytime BB calls for it.

Cirie gets to work with Felicia about them going after Hisam. The plan would have to requite a backdoor situation. Felicia thinks it would be a huge game move, but she still has a lot to figure out about whether or not it would be good for her game.

And it really only takes one private conversation with Hisam for her to make up her mind. He cuts her off at every turn and offers some pretty condescending commands. So the plan moves on, but who should go up as pawns.

Felicia lets Jag and Cameron know the plan and that they’re going to have to go up initially. Felicia in particular tells Cameron that she wants him to go up so he can win the Power of Veto.

And at the nomination ceremony, that’s what happens. Felicia nominates Jag and Cameron, with Hisam as the secret backdoor plan.
