It was a quieter day in the Celebrity Big Brother house as everyone is pretty tuned into what the new Head of Household has planned. Most of the day featured Ross, Marissa, Brandi and Arianda trying to figure out who to get Omarosa out this week instead of one of them.
Celebrity Big Brother Live Feed Highlights – Tuesday, February 20, 2018:
9:15 AM BBT – HGs getting up for the day.
9:25 AM BBT – Ross lets Marissa know that Brandi and Ari are going up with Omarosa as the backup plan.
9:25 AM BBT – Mark tells James he’s worried about Brandi as a threat if she stays in the game. James says he feels bad for Ari’s position in the game. James offers the idea to BD Brandi but Mark says he’d rather just put her up and against Ari. He thinks it’d be too much drama to nominate Brandi and Omarosa together. Mark hopes to get out Brandi to split up that Ari + Brandi team which leaves Ari and Omarosa isolated. He’s not opposed to backdooring Omarosa but would still prefer to get out Brandi given the choice.
9:30 AM BBT – Mark rethinks his options and says it might not be better to renom Omarosa after all. He’s worried if Brandi is there then Omarosa may peel away votes against her. Mark tells James he might renom either Ross or Marissa to lockdown Brandi’s eviction. James notes Ross and Marissa won’t like that. Mark says it’s not up to them and it’s not their choice.
11:40 AM BBT – Omarosa mentions yesterday’s comp was designed for one of the guys to win. She admits that if she doesn’t win the Veto then she’s probably going home. Brandi hopes the girls can pull it off so someone else goes home instead. Brandi suggests it’d be better for them to have Marissa go since she knows the game better.
12:20 PM BBT – Brandi tells Ross she doesn’t expect anyone but the noms to use the Veto.
12:30 PM BBT – Ari tells James she didn’t want him out, but had to nominate him to get her target Shannon. James claims he hasn’t lied at all in the game.
12:46 PM BBT – James is coaching Mark on what to say in his speech to nominate Brandi and Ari. He wants Mark to tell Brandi she’s been mean. Mark thinks Brandi would be a bigger challenge threat than Omarosa, so they should get her out first.
1:30 PM BBT – Marissa tells Brandi they need to get Ross and her (M) in the competition so they can save either her (B) or Ari then Omarosa goes up and they can vote her out. (Mark privately mentioned earlier that maybe he wouldn’t renom Omarosa so he could make sure to get Brandi out.)
1:32 PM BBT – The girls agree that Ross is the safest this week, aside from James. They know Mark won’t be putting him on the block this week.
2:00 PM BT – Ari asks Ross if he thinks she’s going up with Brandi. He says maybe or with Omarosa or himself. Ari tells him he’s not going up. Ross says the problem is that there are so few of them that it will be one of them. Ari says she just wants to know she she can be ready and be packed.
2:42 PM BBT – Brandi and Marissa discuss getting Omarosa out this round. They say if she goes then their core four is still strong. They talk about it being a double (it is). Marissa says they can’t expect Mark to put Omarosa up outright so they need to get her backdoored.
2:45 PM BBT – Brandi tells Marissa she thinks it’ll be the two of them nominated. Omarosa asks them why she wouldn’t go up. Brandi says because she’s (O) not aligned with anyone.
3:10 PM BBT – Mark tells Ross that he doesn’t think anyone will be surprised at his nominations (Brandi and Ari). Ross tells Mark that Ari asked him if she was going up and he played dumb. Mark says Ari might be surprised but she put him up as a renom. He says he can’t be worried about this stuff because they’re at the end of the game. Mark says he is still committed to the final four with the two of them, James and Marissa.
3:15 PM BBT – Ross tells Mark not to worry about what he’s doing. He says if he was in his position, he would be doing the exact same thing.
3:16 PM BBT – Ross asks Mark if Ari or Brandi go this week and Omarosa gets HOH and puts him up, if he’d have the votes to stay. Mark says he doesn’t see how he wouldn’t.
3:40 PM BBT – Marissa and Ross disagree on who they’d keep this week. Ross would keep Brandi over Ari. Marissa would keep Ari. Marissa says her dream final 3 is the two of them and Ari but she still wants them to get Omarosa out before either Brandi or Ari.
3:45 PM BBT – Marissa says she doesn’t want Omarosa to get to the final four. She says she doesn’t want that narrative to be a part of their show. She says she doesn’t want America to ask how they let Omarosa get to the end.
It sounds like Ross and Marissa have their work cut out for them this week if they want to shift the target from Brandi to Omarosa. And then they’re going to be faced with the double eviction right after that, so who knows what will happen this week.
