For those of you expected a full-fledged “new” episode of “Big Brother: Over the Top,” odds are you were disappointed tonight. What we had instead can be more or less described as the other recap shows from the week put together with a little bit more new footage at the end to spice it up a tad.
The live eviction started at 8:00 p.m. Big Brother Time, and we give them credit for being timely with it! Everyone went into the Diary Room to cast their votes to evict, and the feeds did a good job of having cameras in multiple places just for the sake of making sure every single angle was caught. The speeches were fairly boring, and that’s somewhat of a bummer since this isn’t your standard show, and you have more time to engage in shenanigans.
Let’s go ahead and get now to the end result, which Monte went and accumulated given that there was no Julie Chen on the other side to announce it. (Need further evidence that her bits are prerecorded?) As it turns out, evictions are even more quiet and uncomfortable when they are not being done in the typical live-show environment. This was made even more so when Cornbread was sent home in a 9-1 vote. He didn’t really bother to say goodbye to anyone, and he just picked up his stuff and left, tuxedo t-shirt on his back and a swear word spewing out of his mouth. We’d probably feel more for the guy had he not said particularly offensive things in the house this season, which made most of America turn against him to the point where some people in the house did the same.
The Head of Household Competition will take place starting at 9:00 p.m. Big Brother Time. We will be back with more later.
