When we last left our “Big Brother” houseguests on Thursday night, they had just started the annual slip n slide competition to determine who would take the Head of Household key from Haleigh Broucher. Whoever filled their big HOH jug with liquid first would be named the winner, but there was also a smaller $5,000 cylinder up for grabs. Which of the eight players slipped and slided their way to the HOH room: Tyler Crispen, Brett Robinson, Sam Bledsoe, Scottie Salton, Faysal Shafaat, Kaycee Clark, Angela Rummans or JC Mounduix? And who did they choose to nominate for eviction?
Below, check out our minute-by-minute “Big Brother” recap of Season 20, Episode 24 to find out what happened Sunday, August 19 at 8/7c. Then be sure to sound off in the comments section about your favorite houseguests on CBS’ reality TV show, who annoys you the most, and who you think will ultimately join the “Big Brother” winners list. Keep refreshing/reloading this live blog for the most recent updates.
8:00 p.m. – “Previously on ‘Big Brother’!” In Thursday’s eviction episode Rockstar Lantry was blindsided by a 5-1 vote over Kaycee, so the Pagan witch was sent off to the jury house. Thus, Level 6 was responsible for yet another epic blindside, proving their dominance in “BB20.” If either Tyer, Brett, Kaycee or Angela wins tonight’s challenge they will continue to run the game. But if anyone else prevails it’ll sure make for an interesting week. Let’s see how it all plays out!
8:15 p.m. – The HOH competition resumes and Fessy admits he was blindsided at the eviction ceremony last week. They simply can’t figure out the Level 6 alliance! They even think Brett is on their side. Haleigh is infuriated that her best friend (Rockstar) went home during her HOH and she’s convinced if Fessy doesn’t win this week she will go home. Tyler is certain Level 6 can’t possibly be so lucky two weeks in a row, so he’s in it to win it during this week’s HOH contest. Slowly Fessy, Tyler and Scottie start to pull away from the other housemates. Kaycee can barely even walk on the slippery surface and appears to be spending more time on her butt than her feet. As more time passes it looks like it will come down to Fessy and Scottie. Finally, Fessy is declared the winner! Will he finally get a Level 6 member out of the house? Or will he get blindsided just like his girlfriend?
8:20 p.m. – Fessy is thrilled to be the HOH. He’s been left in the dark the entire game and he’s hoping to finally cut through the bulls***. JC is laughing in the Diary Room because he knows Fessy will do whatever he tells him to. Haleigh wants to figure out who is lying so they target the right person. She is convinced Scottie was truthful about voting for Rockstar to stay (he was). But last week JC and Tyler came up with a plan to convince the entire house it was Brett who actually flipped and voted for Rockstar. Will Fessy take the bait?
8:25 p.m. – Haleigh is asking Fessy who he wants to put up. He wants a man to go home and is set on putting Scottie on the block. Fessy, no! Haleigh is furious and wants Brett and Tyler on the block. Fessy still keeps talking about putting Scottie on the block because he’s scared he will take Tyler off if he wins the Veto. Haleigh tells Fessy if Scottie is on the block on eviction night he’s going home. She’s right.
8:30 p.m. – JC is explaining why he didn’t vote for Rockstar to stay. Fessy doesn’t even care he will not target JC. Then JC enacts his plan and tells Fessy that Scottie voted against Rockstar and it was Brett who voted to save her. Fessy thought being HOH would clear things up for him but he’s still completely clueless. JC goes and tells Tyler, Angela and Kaycee about the lie he told Brett. Next, he’s hoping to to convince Fessy that Scottie wants HIM out because Scottie has a crush on Haleigh.
8:35 p.m. – After reading an emotional letter from his parents, Fessy cuts to business in the HOH room. He tells everyone there won’t be any one-on-one conversations tonight, but he is planning to do what is best for him. He asks the group, flat out, who was the one vote to keep Rockstar? Scottie says it was him and then finally Brett speaks up. He claims he was the vote to keep Rockstar in the house and pretends the house is already against him. Scottie finds it comical, but it’s actually not because Fessy will probably believe him. Scottie tells Kaycee she’s a bulls*** actor. Kaycee blows up on him and says she is loyal and has never been close to Brett. Scottie is not doing a good job of defending himself and at this point Fessy is still confused.
8:45 p.m. – JC is now working on Haleigh, hoping he can turn her against Scottie as well. He tells Haleigh that Scottie likes her and plans to target Fessy. In the Diary Room, Haleigh says she’s not buying what JC is selling but it’s tough to argue with him. They then rope Fessy into the conversation. He’s ready to throw Scottie on the block right now. When Scottie joins them, things get awkward and Fessy tells everyone he wants to go to bed. Haleigh admits that Scottie has her best interest at heart, but probably not Fessy’s. Haleigh feels bad and wants to go tell Scottie he’s not alone in this game. Fessy is clearly jealous and appears to want to hand Level 6 another free pass this week because of it. Wow! Haleigh wants nothing to do with Fessy’s testosterone-driven rage and doesn’t even want to talk to him anymore.
8:55 p.m. – JC is trying to replicate Sam’s Southern accent. JC is hilarious to watch and I have to say he took his game up a notch this week. He’s brilliantly played both sides of the house. Meanwhile, Haleigh tells Scottie he better go talk to Fessy because he might be going on the block. Scottie says that would be extremely stupid and runs up to the HOH room. Scottie is telling Fessy that Brett and Kaycee are working together and trying to sabotage him. Fessy says he has never seen Brett talk to Kaycee and he doesn’t believe Scottie. I think Fessy just wants to get rid of any other guy Haleigh talks to. Fessy says Scottie never talks game with him so he doesn’t trust him. Haleigh asks him how much game Tyler, Kaycee or Angela talks with him? Fessy isn’t budging. Haleigh is furious and says she hopes Fessy feels bad when she goes home next week. Fessy is totally clueless. Poor thing.
8:59 p.m. – It’s time for the nomination ceremony! Fessy has nominated Brett and Scottie for eviction. Wow! Props to JC to fueling that fire. Level 6 is basically in the clear for another week unless Scottie wins Wednesday’s Veto. Brett laughs in the Diary Room and says Fessy is such an idiot. Scottie is completely baffled. JC laughs, calling Fessy his big, dumb puppet. Haleigh just wants to play in the Veto competition so she can try to clean up his mess. And that’s a wrap for tonight!
