BIG BROTHER 25 ~ Official Thread ~ Part 2

And the game continues...

by Anonymousreply 138September 23, 2023 10:06 PM

Yesterday in the comic room, you mentioned having select words for your fellow houseguests in the event you were evicted. You left on a high note, though, so we didn’t see that happen. Overall, what are your feelings about your eviction and how the game is being played this season?

Honestly, I mean, it’s Big Brother… You can’t really expect too much, and if you do, you’ll just be disappointed. I did have some things that I was going to say, but ultimately, it felt better just to leave it unsaid. I didn’t want to go out being looked at in a certain light or feeling like I was being… I don’t really know the word. I didn’t want to feel like I left in a negative manner. I wanted to be as much of a positive imprint on my houseguests and America that I could be, so ultimately, I kept that to myself.

The target seemed to shift back onto you when you vocalized being open to patching things up with Cameron after he won veto. Throughout the game, how much did you consider your allegiance to him being viewed as a threat to the house?

Honestly… I never told Jared that I was going to be realigning with him. All I did say was that I’d be having a conversation with him, and I think that’s what raised those red flags and ultimately led to my demise in the house. Maybe I shouldn’t have been so honest, but I can’t be mad at myself for sticking to my moral values, you know?

At one point in the week, you said you were going to use the veto on Cameron if you won and that you wanted the house to evict you if you were to sit next to him on Thursday. What motivated those thoughts, and how serious were you about pursuing them?

Honestly, I told him that if it comes down to it. Because ultimately, my alliance didn’t trust him as much as they trusted me. I felt that him being my final two, it was important to keep him around. I knew that if maybe I used it on him, I had enough trust in my alliance that they would put up somebody else and we had a backdoor option. So, had I won, I would have been put into the position – even after hearing of what I thought was betrayal – to still do that for him. That was a lot of my concern in playing that veto. But I still went after it, as I do with every other competition at 125%. But I would have done what I had to do, because that’s what I said I’d do.

There was a moment during Cameron’s first HOH where he suggested targeting the power structure of Cirie, Izzy, and the comic room, but you dissuaded him from doing that. If he were to make a move against them this week, who do you think his target would be?

Well, I didn’t get to talk to him a lot in the last week as you’ve seen, but based on just what I know, I would feel better and feel better for him and his game if he would target Izzy. She is the biggest danger, in my opinion, to his game. She is very much not his biggest fan and has let it be known across the whole house. Getting her out, I think, will be key to him moving forward.

On a game level, the house seems to be very anti-America, and you’ve also spoken about wanting to target her. What about her do you think the house finds so distrusting?

Well, I think she’s just a super fan. I think the information that she provides is very vague, and you can just tell that she’s trying to stay in the middle. It’s almost like she’s floating, but you know she has the tools to not be. She’s very smart, a good competitor, and all those things are things that raise red flags in the Big Brother house. Those were my reasons for distrusting her, and she was on the other side of the house. I was with a majority that weren’t feeling America.

You spoke a bit about your undying loyalty for Cirie throughout the game, but she has been one of the most prominent voices in trying to get you on the block with Cameron. How shocked have you been to learn that she’s been plotting against you for so long?

Very shocked! The woman told me and assured me multiple times that me and her would go far, even down to the very end. If it came down to it, she would choose me to be a part of the alliance even more so than Izzy. And then she even said at one point, “Over my dead carcass will you leave this house,” and reiterated multiple times: “carcass.” So, it’s definitely a shock and a surprise, and honestly, she’s the person I feel most betrayed by at the end of the day.

It seems that Cameron wants to put up Blue and Jag as his initial nominees. How good of a move do you feel that will be for him moving forward?

I mean, honestly, it is… The other side of the house is dwindling down the numbers. Hopefully he’s not still putting his faith in Legend 25, but they’re doing a good job of keeping things secret, so you can’t blame the guy. Jag has been a target for weeks. It’s the least amount of blood on his hands, and that’s the game he needs to be trying to play moving forward because he’s already got a very large target on his back.

Knowing all that you know now, is there one person you’d like to see out the door next?

Knowing what I know now, I’d still like to see Izzy go. I think seeing her leave is better for Cam’s game, and ultimately, I’d like to see him go to the end.

There were many instances where you were left out of conversations. For example, you were left out when Felicia initially wanted to backdoor Hisam. Did you ever consider branching outside of The Professors or Legend 25 and forming something more solid?

Well no, not really, because I had pledged my loyalty to those alliances. And I’m one of those types of guys that when I’m in, I’m all in, but if I’m out, I’m all the way out. And I think you saw that with me and Cam. I’m not a lukewarm or tepid type of feller. I’m cold or I’m hot, and that’s just the way it is. I had pledged my loyalty to my alliance, and that’s the way I planned on keeping it.

I’ve been watching the feeds, and you were quite the house chef this season! Do you plan on incorporating more of that passion into your existing social media content?

I mean, not really. Honestly, it was out of necessity. When I cook, it’s kind of my happy place, if you will. It gives me time to where I get to do something that I’m good at, and I can do it without having to think about it much so that I have time in my head. It was a way to feel connected to home, because that’s what I do alone at home. But I mean, who knows? Maybe I’ll be cooking some random Red recipes in the future on my social media. Maybe that’s an avenue!

Cam nominated Izzy and Felicia. And I think Cerie is his backdoor target.

Yes, he was saying Blue and Jag were his targets, and then, BOOM! A surprise at the nomination ceremony. Great move!

I think he’s sexy. Don’t ask me why. Maybe it’s the hair, the swagger. Maybe he’s hung as hell. I wouldn’t mind the probable monster bush.

Apparently Felicia instituted a curfew that they all have to go to bed by 😂

The Reddit fraus are hoping after Felicia is evicted the curfew will be lifted so the late night feeds are more exciting and they can get more “Americory” content. They are really hoping Cory finally kisses America and speculating that maybe Cory is into “edging” and that’s why he’s waiting to kiss her. Also, Cory’s mother allegedly weighed in on Twitter and said she wants him to kiss America.

HoH Cameron has proposed a plan that would surely stun fans and viewers at home if it plays itself out.

Cameron laid out his scheme to veto winner Jared in the HoH room away from prying eyes.

“How are you feeling?” asked Jared.

“I’m feeling great! Exceptional! I came in here and I took my microphone off and said you cannot script this! No one could have written a better script than what’s happening right now!” said Cameron about Jared’s veto win.

Cameron then carefully broached his plan.

“Two questions: One, do you want to play this safe or do you want to continue the mayhem and blow some s–t apart?” he asked.

“The first question is which thing do you want to do because we once we go there we can’t go back. I don’t want to just tell it to you. You got to tell me you want to do it. If you don’t want to do it. We’re not going to do it,” he continued.

Jared was interested but also very cautious about what he might be agreeing to.

“You want me to jump off this bridge? I want to use a parachute and jump off the bridge,” he said asking for more information.

“What do you want to do and I’ll tell you what I think is going to be a bombshell…You tell me that you’re ready to drop grenades. I’ll do a flyby. You just have to commit to doing it with me and we got to do it together…There’s going to be mayhem regardless if it (the veto) gets used or not. This house is in disarray. It’s broken. No one knows which way is up but if we drop the grenades people will scatter and not know where to go. We will be the only ones that have a little bit of control. Everyone else will be lost,” Cameron promised.

“The plan is going to be you convince everybody in this entire house that you’re going to keep nominations the same. You have to be convinced yourself that you are not going to change things,” Cameron instructed.

“There’s a beauty in this because everybody thinks that I’m taking Felicia down, bro,” said Jared telling Cameron that he is actually ticked off at Felicia because she hasn’t come to ask him and is probably just assuming he will take her off the block.

“So, here’s what’s going to happen. I’m trusting in you to put on your f——g game face and you go down there and play your role because I know you can go you’re going to make sure that everyone understands you’re keeping nominations the same. Felicia will lose her f—–g mind. She will then come talk to you. She will then start talking trash. She will then go bash everybody in a matter of two days. If she believes that the nominations are going to remain the same she’s going to spill more dirt than anyone in this house. Let her lose her mind. Let her go down a spiral…She will flip for a f—–g wig. She will lose her s—t. We got to let her lose her mind for 48 hours. She’s comfortable right now because she thinks you’re going to use it,” said Cameron.

“Step two, you do take Felicia down. She is so grateful that her ‘adopted son’ finally pulled through that you have an ally where she has none in this house because for 48 hours she’s running everybody down,” Cameron said.

He then dropped the bombshell.

“Step three, I put Cirie next to Izzy,” he said. The news visibly shocked Jared.

by Anonymousreply 11September 10, 2023 4:47 AM

“She’s got to sit next to her best friend and they got to talk trash about each other and campaign for themselves and be apart. Cirie will start to separate herself from Izzy. She’s got to start playing this f—–g game. Izzy he has been her eyes and her ears. We will remove that from her and for that Felicia is going to be doing enough damage on both of them in the next 48 hours…Cirie will be on an island! How poetic is that? The Survivor! That will be perfect!” laughed Cameron.

“We have to be sure people don’t vote out Cirie over Izzy,” said Jared telling Cameron they need to check the “temperature” of the house first before making any decision on what to do.

He then threw out America and Cory as possible replacement nominations.

“I’m getting f—–g sick of them, bro. Because they are getting in a f—–g position to where they are. Cory is starting to make me worry. He is in corners getting to f—–g close to America,” he said.

Cameron then agreed that they will let things sit, read the room and then regroup, discuss the plan some more.

The thing is Jared won’t be able to inform Cirie of much of anything soon because due to a punishment from the veto competition Cirie and Felicia must travel around the house together using a kayak.

Y'all excited about this season? Im getting really into it. Cameron just saved it from being a bore, hopefully with the house structured fracture we can see some new alliances forming against Cirie and her Brat.

Jared is up against a rock and a hard place. If he doesn't use the POV and the house votes out Izzie, she may spill the beans about Jared and Ciries' relationship before she leaves as she will feel betrayed. If he uses the POV for either one Cirie will go up. He may be responsible for having his mother voted out of the house! And, worse of all.... he can't talk to anyone he trusts about any of it.

But we are supposed to think it’s a showmance because the older frau is nonstop pressuring the twink to touch her?

Anyway, I just can’t imagine that Izzy expects Jared to use the veto on her. It’s his mother who would go up in her place.

The Big Brother season 25 Power of Veto ceremony has occurred, and winner Jared Fields decided not to use it to save one of the nominees, Izzy Gleicher or Felicia Cannon, from eviction. Head of Household (HOH) Cameron Hardin shocked the house when he nominated Izzy and Felicia instead of the expected Jag Bains and Blue Kim. After Jared won the veto competition, which featured the host of the upcoming show Buddy Games, Josh Duhamel, Cameron revealed that his plan was to backdoor Cirie. Since Jared is Cirie's son, Jared knew that using the Power of Veto wasn't an option this week.

The Big Brother 25 live feeds revealed that Jared didn't use the Power of Veto. This means that either Izzy or Felicia will be the next houseguest to leave the house. They will join the list of evicted Big Brother 25 houseguests, which includes Reilly Smedley, Hisam Goueli, and Red Utley. Jag was evicted in week 4, but Matt Klotz saved him with the Power of Invincibility. In addition, Luke Valentine was expelled from the game for using the n-word.

ason Guy from #BB3 interviews recently evicted Big Brother contestant Red Utley on the Secret Alliance podcast. Red reflects on his time in the #BB25 house with his signature humor and honesty.

Though Red doesn't regret playing with integrity, he admits it's not the best strategy to win #BigBrother. If he ever returns to the game, Red says he'll come back as "Red the Villain" - lying, making fake alliances, and doing "everything my instinct was telling me not to do."

Red also discusses feeling betrayed by Cirie, celebrating his birthday in the #BB house, missing his family, and whether he'd change how he worked with eventual veto winner Cameron. Red is open to mending fences with Cameron and sees how an alliance could have put a target on his back.

After a difficult month away from his young kids, Red is focused on soaking up time with his family in the Smoky Mountains. But he's open to playing Big Brother again someday with a new cutthroat strategy.

Despite all that has happened last week and this week, Cameron and Cirie are trying to get back on track.

Cirie opened the conversation in the HoH room with Cameron explaining her current predicament with both Felicia and Izzy being on the block.

“I’m in a rough spot. I would never, nor do I desire to, kick dirt on either one of them,” she said of two of her closest allies.

“I’m on the trail of trying to salvage anything that’s salvageable for us. I appreciate you taking care of me this week. I appreciate you honoring what you said to me. I’m here for guidance. How can we go from here? How do I fix the trust or whatever that was broken between us?” she asked.

“Well, first off, I was dead serious when you came in here right after the nominations when I told you that I love you and I do trust you. I know that you’ve only had to make the moves that you’ve done because you had to. A piece of me understands that. It can be painted that you were looking out for the group as a whole by taking care of Red,” began Cameron.

“I get that. The only thing that I was upset about was not being let in on it because I would have done what was best for the team. I would have listened to all of you. I would have heard what you said and I would have done what was best for our team. I always would have,” said Cameron about not being kept in the dark about the vote to boot Red last week.

“If I had I been let in on what was going on this would have been a completely different week. I told you that I’m with this crew right now and then not only did we go ahead and turn on one of ours but two of us were left out. It just didn’t feel like we were part of that team, like we weren’t in on the plan. Our emotions were decided for us….That was where the hurt was and you guys have already apologized for that…I’m not mad about that. I forgive anything like that because I know that at your core you were acting out of best interest for yourself and for the group too,” said Cameron.

Cameron then reassured Cirie that he still trusts and wants to work with her.

“You were the only person that Red trusted and loved and that was why you are the only person that I currently trust and love. I have a lot of respect and love and trust for you and nothing that happened Thursday night changes that. I know that this is a game…There is a firm firm line for me between game and personal. I love you and I respect you and I trust you…I told you that you remind me of my sister,” said Cameron.

Cameron then laid out what it will take for them to continue working together. He needs Izzy gone from the game.

“I wanted her out a long time ago…I know that that is your girl. I do know that. I know how hard it is letting go of friends in this house…I know that she’s your girl and I know that Red was your guy. I don’t see a path with you and I working together if she’s in this house. I cannot imagine how hard that is to hear so bluntly…I know we work well together. I know we see things at face value, we see everything for exactly what it is…The bottom line is she is very, very good at this game. She has hands in pockets around this house and she is prepared to break from anyone at any time. A lot of people see it but a lot of people are afraid to pull the trigger because they don’t know what’s going to happen after she’s gone,” he said laying out his ultimatum.

“I straight up and down appreciate this level of trust and honesty for you to even feel okay to say this to me, knowing that’s my best friend. That’s already taken a step for me that you are that open and blunt with what how you feel and why you feel it. I already respect and appreciate you. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. I don’t feel like anyone in this game has the balls to be this honest. You could b——-t me all day but I wouldn’t feel like you respect me if you are b———g me. So, for you to just be this blunt. I feel respected,” she said.

Cirie then gave her answer to his proposal.

“I’m going to keep it straight with you. I’m no idiot either. I get what you’re saying. It just I need give me a little bit of time just to think about it. I’m not going to say this to Izzy because I don’t want her spiraling. I don’t want to make it a situation. I’m not going to do that. You have my word. I’m not going to do that,” she said asking for time to really let things sink in and to determine what is the best game move for her. Whether it is better for her to keep Izzy or Felicia.

Cameron respected that decision.

Jeff Probst wouldn’t underestimate Cirie Fields.

Speaking to ET Canada, the host of Global’s “Survivor” shared his thoughts on watching the show’s legendary star Cirie Fields join “Big Brother” this season.

READ MORE: ‘Big Brother’: Hisam Says He Blames Himself After Brutal Blindside Eviction (Exclusive)

“Look, there’s a reason Cirie is in the ‘Survivor’ Hall of Fame,” Probst said. “And it’s this crazy ability that, you know, she’s a threat to win any social game she plays, and yet you want to keep her around. I don’t even get it. And I feel that way about Cirie.”

Fields, a nurse from Pennsylvania, has competed on “Survivor” four times, beginning with “Survivor: Panama” in 2005, and most recently in the “Game Changers” season in 2016.

She was also the co-winner of the reality competition “Snake in the Grass” in 2022, and won the first season of “The Traitors” earlier this year.

‌”I don’t know that I would ever trust her in any game, but I’d want to play alongside her knowing she’s probably going to beat me,” Probst said of Fields.

“That’s her innate ability to get you to like her, because she is likeable. She’s both. She’s really likeable. She’s fun to be around. And you forget she’s already plotted against you and your game is over,” he continued.

Probst added, “That’s why I think it’s going to be fun to watch Cirie play a game like ‘Big Brother’. She’s played ‘Survivor’. She’s played other games. ‘Big Brother’ is its own game and it’s a long game. And I think that bodes well for Cirie.”

As this week’s vote nears utter chaos has erupted in the Big Brother house with Felicia and Izzy on the block.

A strategic conversation between America and HoH Cameron in the bathroom got the ball rolling.

“Stuff that I told you two days ago came back to me,” said America cuddled up in a blanket.

“What? I swear I have no said a single f—–g word to anyone. I cannot be any more clear about this,” said a ticked off Cameron.

“It was pinned on you too,” said America.

“I haven’t talked about anything. I promise you,” said Cameron. “Being with you guys is my only way forward…I cannot burn the one bridge that’s being offered to me. Stop letting people get in your head too.”

“I know. It is not anyone else but me,” admitted America.

America then dropped a bombshell on Cameron about this week’s vote. Izzy has been Cameron’s target from the moment he won HoH.

“I know it is early but I want to tell you right now the votes aren’t there,” said America.

“I don’t care. They’re the dumb asses! Everyone that doesn’t vote this way doesn’t see it and is the dumb ass!” said a furious Cameron. “It won’t be a blindside to me. It will be a blindside to them down the road.”

“It will be one less of the group they have,” said America of that side losing a number.

“It will be one down. I don’t care. It is what everyone wants to do. They are just leaving a player in the house,” said Cameron.

“I know they are,” said America.

“I care but if anyone thinks they are getting one over on me, the joke is on them! They are the dumb asses! They are leaving a player in the game,” said Cameron snapping.

“It is not Izzy they are scared of. It is the connections she has in the house,” explained America.

Cameron left America and sat down beside Felicia in the front room.

“So, if they are telling you now that they are willing to keep you they are f—–g lying to you,” said Cameron of the vote.

“Okay,” said a stunned Felicia.

“I know that because that is what they are telling me. Let’s get real here. I am Public Enemy Number One. I know I was the target last week until I won the veto. I know you flipped the vote at the last minute last week and it is okay because as I have said there is a huge distinction for me between game and personal,” said Cameron.

Cameron detailed how he is aware of what happened between him and Red now.

“What happened with Red?” asked Felicia.

“Some things I said were twisted,” said Cameron.

“As it sits, you meet Julie (Chen Moonves) on Thursday,” he said.

“I am going home on Thursday?” asked a confused Felicia.

“Do with that what you will. Please know I love you,” said Cameron standing up and hugging Felicia.

Felicia then went into panic mode pinning down the other houseguests.

She questioned Bowie Jane.

“Cam is telling me that everyone is lying to me and they are voting me out,” she said.

Bowie Jane told Felicia she will go speak to Cameron and get to the bottom of things.

Felicia then spoke to Jag.

“I am hearing right now that I am the person going home and was just wondering what the thought process is?” she asked.

“There is no consensus from the group that I know of,” answered Jag.

“I have five people telling me they are keeping me but I don’t know if they are lying to me,” sighed Felicia.

Felicia sat beside Mecole and Blue in the kitchen.

“Cam just came over, sat politely on the couch and told me based on what he knows that everyone is lying to me and I am going home. He could be b——–g me but he says he isn’t,” said Felicia.

“He also said he was nominating me and Jag this week,” answered Blue.

Meanwhile, Cameron was watching everything unfold on the spy screen in the HoH room.

Felicia chatted with America who apologized admitting she is voting Felicia out.

“They don’t want to make enemies of who Izzy is close to,” said America of the other houseguests.

“I supposedly had Cirie, Jared, Matt, Mecole and Bowie Jane. Who are they making enemies with?” asked Felicia.

Felicia caught up with Jared and cornered him in the bathroom.

“What are your real thoughts because I am hearing that I am going home. Cameron told me that,” she said.

“Cameron is going f—–g crazy right now. He is saying everyone is stupid if we vote you out. He knows his time is short. He knows he is going to get backdoored. You know where I stand,” replied Jared reassuring Felicia that he is voting for her to stay over Izzy.

America gave Cameron an update in the HoH room. She warned him not to toss any more grenades around the house. It seems the house is flipping and Izzy is the target now.

“Right now, we are all still voting out Izzy,” she advised him to tell others of what he knows.

America warned him not to speak to Cirie.

“The line has been drawn,” said Cameron.

“Not yet. Not yet,” advised America.

The Big Brother 25 week 7 Head of Household (HOH) Wall endurance competition has been played, and the winner is Jared Fields for the second time. During his first HOH reign, he succeeded in having Red Utley evicted, although his actual target was Red's main ally, Cameron Hardin. However, Cameron won the Power of Veto and saved himself. Cameron then won HOH the following week and revealed to Jared, who'd won the Power of Veto, that his backdoor target was Cirie Fields. What Cameron didn't know was that Cirie is Jared's mother. Now that Jared has won HOH, it'll be interesting to see if he targets Cameron because of this.

The Big Brother live feeds have revealed that Jared won the iconic Wall HOH competition. During the Pressure Cooker competition, Cameron was just five minutes short of breaking the record for the longest competition in Big Brother history at 13 hours and 49 minutes, but the Wall competition lasted for only about 45 minutes. Cameron was ineligible to play because he was the outgoing HOH. The competition was called "Attack of the 50 Foot Meatball," and featured Big Brother 19 winner Josh Martinez's voice. Giant meatballs hit the houseguests, and they were soaked in pink and green slime, and water. The wall tilted forward, making the competition very difficult.

The Big Brother 25 week 7 Head of Household (HOH), Jared Fields, has nominated America Lopez and Cory Wurtenberger for eviction. Jared won the iconic Wall competition becoming HOH for the second time this season. During his first HOH, his target was Cameron Hardin, but when Cameron won the Power of Veto, Jared sent home his closest ally, Red Utley. The following week, Cameron revealed to Jared that his plan was to backdoor Cirie Fields, not knowing that Cirie is Jared's mother. Jared also had a heated argument with Cory right before the last eviction. Cory is in a showmance with America. The Big Brother 25 live feeds have revealed that Jared nominated Cory and America for eviction. However, they might not be his true target. Jared might actually be trying to backdoor Cameron by not nominating him for eviction. This way, he won't be guaranteed to play for the Power of Veto, and he will only have the chance if his name is picked by random draw or a houseguest chooses him. However, if the whole house decides to target him, no one will select him.

It looks like Cameron’s goose is cooked.

Jag won the Power of Veto today in a football-themed competition. From the way the houseguests were talking about it on the live feeds afterwards Cameron finished second and HoH Jared was third.

“That was fun! There were foam footballs everywhere in the way too!” said Jag wearing a football jersey and the veto necklace.

“Once you got the little football you had to sprint to the end,” said Cameron laughing.

In the Have-Not Bedroom, America expressed her gratitude to Jag. She and Cory are on the block.

“We will talk later about what you want to do but we’re good! We’re good!” said America.

“That was so fun!” said Jag.

“We are going to make it through!” said America.

Blue and Jared danced with joy in the HoH room.

“Forty seconds is crazy! Jag is amazing!” said Blue.

“I knew I was third or second because he was so quick!” said Jared of Jag as Blue danced around clapping her hands.

Once Matt came into the HoH room he and Jared kidded about America and Cory breathing a sigh of relief knowing that Cameron will be backdoored this week.

“They are chilling now,” said Matt. “You should still give them a scare.”

“I can’t do it. It is up to Jag,” snickered Jared.

“You should be like…Jag might not use it!” laughed Matt.

In the storage room, Matt, Blue and Jag celebrated.

“We have to convince him to use it,” joked Matt about Jag and the veto.

“Keep noms the same,” said Blue winking at Jag.

Earlier today before the veto competition was held, Cirie stunned live feeders when she made a very shocking request to Jared.

“Wake up. I want to tell you something,” said Cirie standing over the HoH bed. Jared was resting with headphones on.

“Listen, I was thinking and hear me out. I don’t think it would be a bad idea…I know you will be No! No! No!…but let’s just say Cameron wins and takes America down…” began Cirie.

“Put Jag up?” asked Jared.

“No, put ME up. Let me go because everyone’s associating you and me. It would be the best thing for your game. It would repair you and Cameron. It would shut Cory and them up. It would just put you in a great and better spot. I am okay with it. I promise you. The only thing I will feel is you don’t have anyone here. You still got Blue. You just don’t have me here. For your game, if that were to happen, nobody would be expecting it. It would clear you from all the drama they are trying to connect you to me with. If you don’t and Cameron wins next week you could be in trouble. Think about it,” said Cirie to her son.

“I am not going to do it,” said Jared firmly.

“But that might be what’s best for your game,” said Cirie again.

Survivor legend and The Traitors season 1 winner Cirie Fields has been playing a strong game on Big Brother 25, but the upcoming double eviction might be hard for her to survive. On premiere night, Cirie was added as the 17th houseguest in a surprise twist. Her son, Jared Fields, is also playing the game this season. So far, only evicted houseguest Izzy Gleicher knew their true identities for sure because she recognized them instantly, but she was fiercely loyal to them, and took their secret out the door.

During the last Big Brother 25 live eviction episode, host Julie Chen Moonves announced that the Thursday, September 21 episode would be a double eviction. In a double eviction, the houseguests play a week's worth of Big Brother in one night after the first eviction. This consists of the Head of Household (HOH) and Power of Veto competitions, and the veto ceremony. An eviction then takes place, all within one episode. Because of the fast pace and the current dynamics of the Big Brother house, Cirie could be in danger during the double eviction.

Cirie and her son Jared have been running the Big Brother 25 house for most of the game. Although Cirie hasn't won any competitions yet, her fantastic social game has allowed her to control almost every vote this season. Jared has already won three competitions, including two HOHs (week 5 and week 7) and one Power of Veto (week 6). Jared's veto win prevented Cameron from backdooring Cirie, a plan which he revealed to Jared, not knowing that Cirie is his mother. However, because Jared is the current HOH after winning the Wall competition, he will be ineligible to play during the double eviction.

Without Jared playing for HOH, the only person Cirie can count on to truly keep her safe is herself. There's no telling when the houseguests might turn on her. Her close ally, Felicia Cannon, already expressed to Jared that she'd rather go to the final two with him than Cirie. Jag Bains and Matt Klotz were unhappy when they discovered that their alliance with Cirie might be fake from Cory Wurtenberger, and flipped their votes this past week to vote out Izzy instead of Felicia. This move was meant to weaken Cirie.

Cirie has been on America Lopez and Cameron Hardin's radar for weeks now too. Although Cameron is Jared's backdoor target, and will most likely be gone before the second eviction, there's enough people who aren't happy with Cirie that they could easily turn on her. Plus, whichever houseguest finally evicts Cirie will forever be known as the player who took out a Survivor legend. That distinction would be great for a Big Brother resumé.

The Big Brother 25 Power of Veto ceremony has occurred, and, after the veto winner, Jag Bains, used it to save nominee Cory Wurtenberger, Head of Household (HOH) Jared Fields nominated Cameron Hardin in his place. Cory was on the chopping block next to his showmance, America Lopez, who is still nominated for eviction. However, it's almost certain that the houseguests will vote out Cameron this week.

The Big Brother 25 live feeds have revealed that Jared nominated Cameron as the replacement nominee after Jag used the Power of Veto to save Cory. Jared's original plan was to backdoor Cameron by not making him an initial nominee. However, America pulled Cameron's chip, so he did have the opportunity to compete for the veto. The houseguests are currently behaving as though Cameron's eviction is a done deal. Unlike previous weeks, they don't seem to be wavering in their decisions to vote him out.

Although he will tell you he isn’t campaigning Cameron is doing his best to persuade his fellow houseguests to keep him in the game.

Despite the backdoor plan that has been executed against him Cameron is still hoping for that Hail Mary play. That the house will somehow keep him over America.

Today, he spoke to Jared, Jag and Matt in the have-not bedroom floating theories about the course of the game and how he might be returning, if he has the math right.

“Put me to work. I promise I will be surprised when things go crazy,” he said before launching into his predictions.

“I will tell you three this as I will know it will not leave this room. I am not a betting man and I have been wrong in this game, basically every step of the f—-g way. If I am a baseball fan and I have struck out 99 times, my one time is coming up to hit a ball. The odds are in favour,” he began.

“The fact that they (the producers) moved jury back two weeks and went from nine people to seven people tells me something weird is going to happen with the two people. I told Cory this earlier. The two people voted out in the next two weeks that is the first possibility of a battleback,” he said. “I say that because as I think this week’s competition will be a quick active game or an interactive mental game because I think next week is going to be a lot more physical. That way, the battleback can just put run with it. The first one of those two who goes down doesn’t get back into the house.”

“I have never seen a battleback with two people though,” said Jag.

“Well, I have never seen them move back the damn jury to the classic but battleback is a classic and we haven’t done it yet. I am going to f—k up you all when I come back in here,” joked Cameron.

“For the first time ever, there will be eight people nominated for eviction,” laughed Jag.

“We have even nominated Julie (Chen Moonves) and Mister Big,” added Jared.

“My other possible theory is another America’s Vote…The other possibility would be a double eviction because something needs to be put in fast forward,” said Cameron.

“Really? This week?” asked Jared.

“Next week would be battleback to me. Let’s get real, I leave and then whomever leaves next week doesn’t even leave the house. They go right back out and we do some sort of battleback scenario. They want to stretch this thing to a hundred days? We aren’t even at fifty yet,” Cameron predicted. “They are going to have doubles because they get ratings like crazy. They got to have a double. They have got to have a battleback. That’s just math.”

“I haven’t watch enough to be useful in this conversation,” said Jared.

Cameron reminded everyone that his deal still stands with those who might want to work with him.

“A lot of consideration, I will say that much. I can only speak for myself though,” said Jared of what he thought of keeping Cameron in the house.

“I am talking to you because I wouldn’t talk to you all about the exact same situation. The deal stands. I am not going to be the guy going around campaigning. I need five votes. I need five rogue votes and YOU,” he said to Jared. “If you have already got your mind made up I am not going to f—k with you but if you wanted to have some fun, you are about to have it! It will be a final work, a grand finale!” said Cameron.

“I do like fun,” said Jag.

Okay...I am the last person to pull the race card, BUT I've watched BB for a long time, and I have NEVER seen the amount of hate that Jared and Cirie are getting. Every Facebook thread is filled with venom (and awful grammar) towards them and full support of Cameron--who I feel is a condescending asshole.

I get it with Jared. He’s young, an idiot, and has a temper. But it seems to me that since Luke got kicked out for saying “nigga,” this wave of hate was aimed at Jared, Cirie, and Felicia, and it’s intensified. Not so much with Felicia now, but people were looking for anything to get them kicked out. I’m not sure why people are calling Cirie a bully now. She's never raised her voice that I've seen. I mean…I’m a pretty objective person, but it’s getting more difficult to not see some kind of bias here. They’re actually playing the game unlike many of the contestants.

Scary Week has taken over the Big Brother 25 house, with twists and turns that will change everything, even resurrecting one evicted houseguest's game. After Thursday's double eviction, in which Cameron Hardin, a 34-year-old stay-at-home dad from Eastman, Georgia, and Jared Fields, a 25-year-old exterminator from Norwalk, Connecticut, were both eliminated, host Julie Chen Moonves informed them that they'd been given the opportunity to re-enter the house, and one of them would be returning to the game. In addition, for the first time ever, the week will play out with a completely different format, as the episode schedule changes as well.

Throughout Big Brother 25, there have been incredible twists that have shaken up the game. From the multiverse being unleashed in the house, to Survivor legend Cirie Fields (and Jared's mom) being added to the cast as the 17th houseguest, the show's milestone season has reinvented the game, while also honoring its storied past. Scary Week is demonstrating that everyone should always remember Big Brother's motto, "expect the unexpected," as so many shocking changes will rock the house this week.

Cameron and Jared were both eliminated during the double eviction, but they now will have the chance to return to the game. After they left the Big Brother house, Julie told them that they will become Zombies who will live in the house. Cameron was not surprised to be unanimously evicted, but Jared was shocked that he was targeted. He only received one vote to stay, which was from his mom, Cirie. As Cameron and Jared return to the house, they'll have the opportunity to confront the houseguests for voting them out.

Julie announced that, on Thursday, either Cameron or Jared's game will be resurrected live. One of them will get a second chance at winning the $750,000 grand prize. Although the details about how they'll return to the game haven't been disclosed, it's certain to be a difficult path for them. However, they should be up to the task, considering they've already been such fierce competitors during Big Brother 25.

Cameron and Jared have won more competitions than any other Big Brother 25 houseguests. Jared and Cameron have both won two Head of Household (HOH) competitions and one Power of Veto. One of Jared's most important wins was in the iconic Wall endurance competition, which proved that he has the stamina to outlast his competitors.

Cameron's first HOH win came when he lasted a stunning 13 hours and 49 minutes in the legendary Pressure Cooker endurance competition. He was just five minutes short of breaking the record for the longest competition in Big Brother history. Cameron also survived being nominated three times before he was finally evicted during his fourth stint on the chopping block. He has repeatedly demonstrated that he has the physical and mental prowess to win Big Brother 25.

For the first time in Big Brother history, there won't be an HOH this week. This is presumably because Cameron and Jared have already been nominated for eviction in a sense. It's currently unclear what roles the other houseguests will play throughout Scary Week. As Cameron and Jared battle their way back into the house, there will be no need for anyone to take the lead as HOH. Instead, Scary Week is in control.

Because there is no HOH this week, there will also not be any nominations. However, Cameron and Jared are like nominees, considering that they're both on the chopping block as Zombies. This unique twist allows the other houseguests to sit back for the week.

However, the consequences of the houseguests' actions at the double eviction could come back to haunt them, depending on whether it's Cameron or Jared who returns to the house. This is especially true of Cory Wurtenberger and Matt Klotz, who were instrumental in evicting Jared, as Cory was the HOH and Matt won the Power of Veto during the second eviction. Jared will definitely be seeking answers as to why he was nearly unanimously evicted from the house by people whom he thought were his allies.

A Power of Veto competition is also unnecessary this week, since there are no nominees to save from the chopping block. Instead, Cameron and Jared must save themselves from eviction by fighting to resurrect their own games. It'll be interesting to see if the other houseguests have any say in who returns to the game. Cameron and Jared might have to compete to resurrect their games, or perhaps the houseguests will vote for which of the two of them they want to see return. The houseguests will be choosing the lesser of evils for their games, considering that both Cameron and Jared will likely return seeking revenge for their evictions.

Big Brother 25 has already had a few schedule changes throughout its run. During Scary Week, the Sunday night episode will air in its usual 10 p.m. EDT time slot. During that show, Cameron and Jared's return to the house as Zombies will air. Then, for Scary Week only, there will be no Wednesday episode. Wednesday episodes air the Power of Veto competition and ceremony, which aren't happening this week. Instead, CBS will air the season premiere of Survivor. Finally, Thursday's episode, in which either Cameron or Jared will resurrect his game live, will air at 9 p.m. EDT instead of 8 p.m. EDT.

Big Brother 25 Scary Week has brought some terrifying twists to the game. As Cameron and Jared fight their way back into the house as Zombies, the other houseguests will have to face the consequences of evicting them in the first place. It'll be intriguing to see which of them returns to the house, and if he'll be able to repair his relationships with his fellow houseguests. Whatever happens, Big Brother 25 Scary Week will definitely be thrilling and chilling.

One of the Big Brother zombies is closer to being resurrected.

Undead Cameron won three competitions on Saturday and is now in the driver’s seat. Cameron will now decide whether he or Jared will compete in the final individual competition which appears to be a timed puzzle of sorts.

If the zombie competing wins they are resurrected in the game. If the zombie loses, the other zombie is.

Jared was seen visibly crying on the feeds with Cirie, Mecole and Felicia after the series of losses and disappointments.

Mecole told him to take a deep breath. His enemies in the house will be waiting to see him fall apart. Mecole gave him a hug as Felicia suggested they leave him alone to collect himself.

Cirie told him to shake it off and get his mind together if Cameron lets him play in the final competition. She too hugged him.

“Where you start is where you finish. You have to believe you have the ability to do whatever it is you have to do,” said Felicia consoling Jared.

When everyone was gone, Jared laid down, lifted up his sunglasses to wipe the tears from his eyes.

Later, Cirie and Felicia returned and reminded Jared that the game isn’t over just yet.

“I am just exhausted with all the talking, all the stories, all the twists, all the lies and everyone is just talking to make you feel good,” said Felicia trying to sound sympathetic.

Cirie said she isn’t looking for conversations any more. Cameron just spoke game with her but she wasn’t really interested.

Blue attempted to comfort Jared when they were by themselves.

“How are you feeling?” she asked.

“As good as it is going to get,” moped Jared.

“I am just going to sit here until Thursday. I don’t care to have any more conversations,” he grumbled “As cool as these people are I wouldn’t hang out with any of them outside of here.”

“I don’t feel like I need to play the game any more,” carped Jared hating the fact that his game hinges on Cameron’s decision.

“I really couldn’t care less that I am on my way out. I feel like I am leaving people behind to fend for themselves,” he said as Blue held him close.

Boo-hoo. I'm not winning so I don't want to play anymore.

Jared's mother must be so proud to see him give up...

by Anonymousreply 129September 23, 2023 1:07 PM

I bet this game is rigged depending on who plays it. If Cameron decides to play they will make the game impossibly hard for him to win. If Jared is chosen to play the game they will make it impossibly easy for him to loose. It's all about making Cirie happy and pulling in the ratings for the rest of the show. They don't want Cirie to bail out if Jared looses again.

If there is one weapon hiding in plain sight on this season of Big Brother, it is the one and only Blue Kim.

Born and raised in Riverside, California, Blue now resides in the Big Apple, currently working as a brand strategist. Whether it is obvious or not, the 25-year-old brought her strategic skills into the Big Brother house (also known as Sound Stage 18 at CBS Studios in Los Angeles) as well, playing a phenomenal game that often gets overlooked – is anyone else getting major Taylor Hale flashbacks?

“Blue is undoubtedly one of the best modern Big Brother players the game has ever seen. I think there’s no denying at this point,” @boolgogi shared via Reddit.

While this Reddit user may have shared a hot take of theirs (riddled with sarcasm throughout, such as Blue “throwing competitions,” hooking up with Jared Fields to “make furniture in the house biohazardous,” and more), we broke down the glimmers of truth sprinkled within this controversial thread, ultimately proving why Blue has the potential to take home $750,000 at the end of Big Brother 25.

While ten different reasons were mentioned throughout this Reddit post (some more serious than others – it is definitely worth the read), we pinpointed some of the best ones that prove Blue Kim to be a threat on this season of Big Brother.

“Similar to Danni from Survivor, she is purposefully hiding her strategy from production. This helps her fly under the radar while also being television gold,” @boolgogi wrote, referencing the shocking win of Danni Boatwright from Survivor: Guatemala.

Describing herself as a “stealth bomber,” Danni used her unmatched social game to outwit, outplay, and outlast her fellow castaways (with a few challenge wins sprinkled in here and there). Even when she was in the minority, the Kansas native built new connections to keep herself in the game, making it all the way to day 39 and ultimately taking home $1 million and the title of “Sole Survivor.”

Praised for her under-the-radar gameplay during the final tribal council, Danni was deemed the champion of Survivor: Guatemala, beating Stephenie LaGrossa in a 6-1 vote. With her not-so-flashy game leading to her a sweeping victory, Danni’s Survivor journey looks very similar to Blue’s Big Brother journey.

After finding herself in the minority, Blue is already beginning to channel her own Danni Boatwright and build new relationships to solidify her position within the game. Our fingers are crossed that her and Danni have the same end result…

In the point to follow, @boolgogi wrote, “She wants this more than anyone else. She has passion, drive, and determination beyond every other houseguest” – if you have been keeping up with season 25 of Big Brother, this is as clear as can be!

If you think back on Big Brother 25 thus far, you may recall Blue mentioning the $750,000 cash prize numerous times in the Diary Room, something that other houseguests have failed to do. She has mentioned wanting to win this money for her family (more specifically to impress her mother), making her passion and drive to succeed known amongst her fellow houseguests, as well as viewers at home.

With her go-getter attitude, Blue is playing the game with the utmost intensity, and she is willing to do anything it takes to make sure she will be crowned the champion – once again, is anyone else getting some Taylor Hale energy from her?

Last but certainly not least, Blue has officially severed her relationship with Jared, which was holding her back from playing Big Brother to the best of her ability.

Now being seen as an individual player (rather than a duo), the California native is beginning to strengthen her connections beyond her showmance partner, ultimately landing her within the majority alliance – the future is bright for Blue Kim!

In addition to this, with Izzy Gleicher out of the Big Brother house, Blue is the only person who knows that Cirie Fields is Jared’s mother, something that can ruin both of their games (especially if Jared re-enters the competition after the Zombie Twist).

Will she use this secret to her advantage? Only time will tell…

“If she doesn’t get evicted and wins all the jury votes, I can 100% see her winning this season. If you disagree, it might be simply not understanding her gameplay. To be fair, it’s not something we usually see for a newbie. This caliber of gameplay combines so many skills from Big Brother legends it’s hard to believe. It is a privilege to see her blossom,” @boolgogi concluded, and we could not agree more.

To see if Blue Kim takes home the $750,000 cash prize, tune into Big Brother 25 every Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday on CBS. Things are definitely starting to heat up…

The king of the mist, Dan Gheesling is one of the legends of CBS’s Big Brother. He’s one of only three competitors to play the U.S.-based version of the game twice, and make it to the end on both occasions. And he’s one of only two contestants to pull off the feat while notching one win as well (sorry, Paul Abrahamian. Congrats, Cody Calafiore).

He also engineered what many regard as the greatest move in the franchise’s history — “Dan’s funeral.”

With the rumor circulating that Dan is joining The Traitors US season 2 cast, I figured it’d be the perfect time to take a quick look into his illustrious Big Brother career. So, let’s get into it.

Dan made his reality competition debut as a 24-year-old Catholic school teacher from Dearborn, Michigan. “I’m Dan, and the other houseguests are going to get schooled,” Dan said in his intro package during the season premiere. And he was ultimately correct with his assessment.

The start of his season wasn’t anything to write home about — he faced eviction in the second week, but survived with a unanimous vote to stay. His alliance member, Brian Hart, was also the first person sent packing. But, using his social game to keep himself around, things really picked up for Dan around the midway point of the game.

When Memphis Garrett was nominated for eviction by April Dowling in week 4 and Dan was voted by the public to carry the responsibility of “America’s Player” that week, the two forged an alliance that has been etched in the history books. Coined “The Renegades,” the two secretly came together and after America commanded Dan to vote out Jessie Godderz instead of Memphis, they proceeded to take over the game.

Creating side alliances with other houseguests to help build their positions in the game, the two eventually found themselves sitting together as the final two players.

After being interrogated by the jury, Dan won Big Brother 10 via a 7-0 vote, cementing himself as a Big Brother champion.

Dan returned to the Big Brother house for season 14 and placed second

Already a big name in the Big Brother universe, season 14 is when Dan truly engrained himself in the franchise’s Mount Rushmore. Returning to the house four years later in 2012, Dan was a part of the coach twist. Dan and three fellow returning Big Brother veterans (Mike “Boogie” Malin, Janelle Pierzina, and Britney Haynes) were tasked at the start of the season with coaching a group of four rookie players.

But, in what most fans and players viewed as inevitable, the four coaches officially joined the game as houseguests in week 3, and Dan was finally released onto the house. Bolstered by alliances like the “Silent Six” and “Quack Pack,” Dan took a stranglehold on the political wheeling and dealing.

He orchestrated multiple blind sides and every name he said in the Diary Room on eviction night went home.

In a stroke of genius, Dan got himself taken off the block in week 7 after spending 24 hours in solitary confinement. Residing on the nomination block without a Power of Veto in hand and sitting next to his closest ally, Danielle Murphree, Dan hosted his own “funeral” to make it seem he was checked out of the game. But, he spoke with Frank Eudy, the week’s Head of Household and his biggest rival in the house, after and convinced Frank he needed to stay to help battle the Quack Pack — his secret alliance that he threw under the bus.

Frank and Dan then worked on Power of Veto holder Jenn Arroyo to save him from eviction, which she did.

And yes, Dan evicted Frank the next week.

Dan ultimately found himself one of the final two remaining houseguests on finale night. This time, it was his “Renegades 2.0” alliance member Ian Terry who he sat next to. But, unfortunately for Dan, he didn’t become the series’ first-ever two-time winner. The jury sided with Ian in a 6-1 vote.

Still, Dan’s season 14 masterclass didn’t go unnoticed by fans and players alike.

At that point, season 2 winner (and season 7 all-star) Will Kirby sat on the throne as the greatest player ever. And many still consider him as that. But, Dan was the first player to give Will a run for his money for the prestigious “GOAT” accolade. And even now, many Big Brother superfans ideal season would be “Dr. Will” and Dan facing off in the Big Brother house – think Survivor season 22’s battle between “Boston Rob” Mariano and Russell Hantz.

And in an interview with Entertainment Weekly ahead of the Big Brother 24 premiere last year, Dan gave a nod to the idea of a showdown with Will. But, in the same breath, he shot it down. “I think it would be fun to play with Will, but it’ll never happen,” Dan said.

Dan said he doesn’t want to play Big Brother again, but he could be heading to The Traitors

When Entertainment Weekly caught up with Dan, they asked him if he’d play Big Brother for a third time. And as he had remained in prior interviews, Dan was adamant that he wouldn’t return to the house.

He called the idea of a comeback a “non-option.” First, he’s a father of three and Dan said he didn’t want to leave his kids for weeks on end. He was in the season 14 house for 75 days and in season 10, he was around for 71 days.

Also, Dan admitted that he lacked the “passion to play” like he had before his second stint wrapped. “I don’t really have an incentive to play,” Dan said. “I don’t have that drive to play the game. I just don’t. I like to compete in other things, but Big Brother, I just don’t have that. I feel like I’m done.”

But, if the rumors are true, the now-40-year-old reality star is all in on experiencing The Traitors. He’s part of the leaked cast list that was shared by X user @GamerVev that’s been widely circulated online. The Traitors, the US version of the franchise that requires exceptional deception and social abilities, is filmed within a few weeks rather than a few months like Big Brother, and since Dan hasn’t schemed on a competition show for over a decade, maybe the mastermind is ready for his grand return?

Big Brother 25 week 8 is unprecedented as Scary Week has taken over the game, sending Cameron Hardin and Jared Fields back into the house as Zombies with the opportunity for one of them to resurrect his game, and, for the first time in Big Brother history, there will be no Head of Household (HOH), no nominations, and no Power of Veto competition for the week. Because of this, the remaining houseguests are on a more level playing field this week, as no one has the power of the HOH. This is a week for everyone to regroup and figure out with whom they truly want to be aligned.

Big Brother 25 has seen some major power players leave the game early. After Luke Valentine was expelled for using a racial slur, Kirsten Elwin, Reilly Smedley, Hisam Goueli, Red Utley, and Izzy Gleicher, were evicted. They were fierce competitors who came to play. Now Cameron and Jared, who were both eliminated during the double eviction, will compete to see which of them returns to the house. As Scary Week plays out, here are the power rankings of the remaining Big Brother 25 houseguests.

1: Matt Klotz is one of the most-liked Big Brother 25 houseguests, which also makes him one of the most powerful. He's also won two competitions, including the Power of Invincibility, which he used to save Jag Bains, and the Power of Veto during the double eviction, which he chose not to use. Matt's fantastic social game and fierce competitiveness make him the strongest houseguest currently playing the game. He has a Final 2 alliance with Jag called The Minutemen, which could take them both all the way to the finale.

2: Jag Bains Although it's taken Jag awhile to find a Big Brother 25 alliance he can fully trust, it seems that he now has strong allies in Matt and Blue Kim. Jag was evicted unanimously in week 4, but Matt used the Power of Invincibility to save him. He's survived being nominated three times now and has won two Power of Veto competitions. Jag is overdue to win an HOH competition. He's in a good spot this week as he's settling into his alliance and getting himself off of people's radars. Jag and Matt's Final 2 alliance, The Minutemen, will be ready to fight.

3: Blue Kim. Blue has been in a showmance with Jared for the past few weeks. However, that may fall apart now that he was evicted from the house. Blue had said that she was fine with Jared being evicted, so it'll be interesting to see if they're still together if he returns to the game. Blue has now aligned with Jag and Matt, which puts her in a good position moving forward. She has already survived the chopping block twice. Now Blue needs to build her Big Brother 25 resumé by winning some competitions.

4: Felicia Cannon. Although many of Felicia Cannon's alliances have crumbled, she solidified a Final 2 alliance with Mecole Hayes, which could help her greatly moving forward. When she was HOH, Felicia succeeded in blindsiding and backdooring Hisam, which was an incredible achievement. She's been nominated twice, but managed to stay in the house both times. Felicia has to learn to stop talking so much, as she has inadvertently revealed a few secrets during the game. However, she's in a pretty good position this week as no one seems to be targeting her as much now that her ally, Izzy, is out of the house.

5: Mecole Hayes. Mecole has been playing her game under the radar since the beginning, which makes it easy for the houseguests to overlook her as a nominee. She hasn't been directly involved in any drama, and has been able to sit back and observe her fellow houseguests, which puts her at an advantage. Her Final 2 alliance with Felicia will help protect her moving forward. During Scary Week, Mecole has nothing to be afraid of.

6: Bowie Jane. Bowie Jane is another houseguest who has been playing a quiet game. Although she was devastated when her alliance left her out of the decision to flip the vote and evict her ally, Red, from the game, she has since found her footing again. She has realized that the only way to keep herself safe is to win. Bowie's association with Cameron might make her a bit of a target, but her fellow houseguests currently have bigger fish to fry.

7: America Lopez. America managed to survive the double eviction, after she was nominated by Jared next to her showmance, Cory Wurtenberger. When Jag won the Power of Veto and saved Cory, America became the pawn in the plan to evict Cameron, whom Jared chose as the replacement nominee. There could be trouble for America because Cory was the next HOH, who blindsided Jared and nominated him during the double eviction. Her association with Cory moving forward could make her a target if Jared returns, but she's a strong competitor who's overdue for an HOH win. America has to win in order to keep herself and Cory safe because he can't play as the outgoing HOH.

8: Cory Wurtenberger. Because Cory is the outgoing HOH, he'll be ineligible to play in the next HOH competition. However, the rules could change when either Jared or Cameron returns to the house, just like when Jag returned to the game after the Power of Invincibility was used and outgoing HOH Cameron was allowed to compete again. Regardless of this, Cory's heated argument with Jared proved that not only was he a persuasive speaker, but that he was willing to blow up other people's games in order to further his own. If Jared returns, he will probably target Cory for real this time. Cory's showmance with America will also always bring attention to him.

9: Cirie Fields. Although the houseguests love Survivor legend and The Traitors season 1 winner Cirie Fields as a person because of her impeccable social game, they know that she's a strong player who must be removed sooner than later. Her fellow houseguests have begun to consider targeting her. Cameron was ready to backdoor her during his second HOH, but revealed his plan to Power of Veto winner Jared, not knowing that Cirie is Jared's mother. If Jared doesn't return to the game, Cirie will be in even deeper trouble. She must win the next HOH competition in order to ensure her safety.

10: Jared Fields. Currently a Zombie, Jared doesn't have much power in the game this week. He must fight his way back into the house. However, if he does return, he'll have a better chance at repairing his relationships and moving forward in the game than Cameron will. Plus, Jared will always have his mother, Cirie, in his corner. Jared has won two HOH competitions and one Power of Veto, proving himself to be a very strong competitor.

11: Cameron Hardin. Although Cameron is one of the strongest players in the house, winning two HOH competitions and a Power of Veto, he doesn't have much power because he doesn't have any true allies. He was nominated for eviction four times. Even if he wins the opportunity to resurrect his game after his time as a Big Brother Zombie, he'll still have to win the next HOH competition in order to avoid being sent right back out the door. However, Cameron has beaten the odds before, proving that when his back is against the wall, he has what it takes to get himself out of a tough spot.

The Big Brother 25 power shifts from week to week, but Scary Week is unique in that there is no HOH. This will allow all of the houseguests to take a breath and reassess their games. When either Jared or Cameron returns to the game, alliances will most likely regroup as the players adjust to the returning player being back in the house. It'll be interesting to see who has the most power when Big Brother 25 Scary Week comes to its thrilling and chilling conclusion.
