8:00 p.m. — “Previously on ‘Big Brother’!” In Thursday’s episode the dominating Level 6 alliance was split up after JC unexpectedly won the HOH comp, his first challenge victory of the entire season. JC nominated Tyler and Angela Rummans for eviction, but it all came down to the Veto. After Kaycee won her fifth Veto, she decided not to use it to save either Tyler or Angela, because that’d mean she’d go on the chopping block as a replacement. During the live eviction hosted by Julie Chen Moonves, Kaycee cast the sole vote to evict Angela, sending her to the jury house.

8:03 p.m. — Tyler thanks Kaycee for saving him, as he tells the audience in the Diary Room how “bittersweet” it is that his showmance partner Angela is gone. Kaycee admits that her decision to evict Angela gave her a “horrible, horrible feeling.” JC adds that it’s “crazy” he’s in the Top 3 and that he won’t stop playing until he’s named the winner.

8:05 p.m. — Kaycee confirms that she’s gonna stay loyal to her Final 2 deal with Tyler that she created back in the first week. Meanwhile, Tyler laughs that he has a Final 2 with both Kaycee and JC. Who will he bring with him if he ends up winning the final HOH?

8:07 p.m. — Former “Big Brother” favorite Jeff Schroeder joins the houseguests to toast Season 20 and to relive all of their favorite moments from the summer. Jeff confesses that he never made it to the Final 3 himself, so he’s excited to see what this moment feels like.

8:09 p.m. — The audience sees a hilarious clip montage of all of the times that Faysal Shafaat and his FOUTTE alliance were shocked on eviction night. Haha! They seriously got blindsided week after week. Next up, Haleigh Broucher‘s infamous house meeting is shown when she confesses to being the hacker and Bayleigh Dayton goes into a blood-spurting screaming fit.

8:17 p.m. –It’s showmance time! When Jeff asks the Final 3 whether there were any showmances this summer, Tyler quickly points to Bayleigh and Chris “Swaggy C” Williams, not wanting to admit his showmance with Angela. We then see the moment when Tyler “promises” the audience that he won’t throw his game away for a showmance. Oops!

8:22 p.m. — Faysal “really wanted it,” but Haleigh “didn’t want to give it to him,” JC says about the season’s third showmance. Kaitlin Olson came into the house with a boyfriend on the outside, which makes Tyler confused about why she was always so jealous about the other showmances.

8:27 p.m. — Kaitlin haters may want to fast-forward this part, as she’s in full yoga, full third-eye, full enlightenment mode with Scottie Salton. Audiences are then reminded of the time that JC told Tyler they were in a “yatus” when he meant to say “hiatus.”

8:30 p.m. — It’s Brett Robinson time! “All hell broke loose,” notes Tyler, when Brett lied about Rockstar Lantry during one of his eviction speeches. Brett was proud of his “bomb of a speech,” while Rockstar went off the deep in end, even throwing out the fact that he lied about her on her daughter’s birthday. Um, okay.

8:37 p.m. — “Sometimes it was a little bit scary,” JC reveals about what it was like living with Sam Bledsoe in the house. In a previously unaired scene, apparently Sam thought that JC had thrown an endurance challenge and accused him of lying about it, which he vehemently denied.

8:40 p.m. — The Final 3 then joke about crying in the Diary Room, or as Kaycee calls it, “Peanut allergies.” If you’re not laughing your butt off watching all of these adults acting like little babies, then you’re probably just a robot. On second thought, even Robot Sam cried!

8:46 p.m. — The houseguests’ punishments are now being highlighted, including Kaycee dressing up in a peanut unitard and singing the “Space Pecs” jingle every time the song played. Rockstar had to create healthy shakes and work out every time Jessie Godderz‘s voice was heard. And Brett’s overbearing grandmother annoyed him for 24 straight hours.

8:51 p.m. — Jeff toasts the Final 3 and wishes them all the “best of luck.” He reminds them that even though he never won “Big Brother,” his wife Jordan Lloyd claimed victory in Season 11.

8:56 p.m. — It’s Head of Household time! The theme for Part 1 is truly out of this world. Whoever rides their prototype spaceship the longest will win this endurance battle and advance directly to the third part. But don’t expect a winner to be revealed tonight. Instead, during the Season 20 finale on Wednesday, September 26, Parts 1, 2 and 3 will all be shown in their entirety. See you then, “BB” fans!
