Big Brother Recap - Week 6 - The Return of King Kaysar
I have a confession to make. I've been watching Big Brother. Big Brother has a reputation as the sleaziest of the major reality TV shows. While that may be true, it's also the most strategically interesting. Because the Head of Household decides who the House Guests even have the chance to evict, alliances are easily broken. Unlike Survivor, it's almost impossible for one alliance to just pick off another alliance one by one.
We're already six weeks into Big Brother 6, and 10 houseguests remain. But don't worry, you can easily catch up with the action. I'll help. I'm not a live feed watcher, but I've been reading the recaps. Doing so certainly gives you more insight into the game than CBS' shows. Here's who I like and who I think has a chance of winning it all.
Strengths: Everyone thinks she's an idiot who could never win a Head of Household competition.
Weaknesses: She is an idiot who could never win a Head of Household competition.
Secret Partner (every houseguest has a partner and they'll double their winnings if they make it to the final two. It's not much of a secret since everyone knows about it): Jennifer
Dirty Little Secrets: She just quit smoking and is now even more insane than normal.
Prospects: Dim. Although she's not a threat, her own alliance thinks she untrustworthy. By hemming and hawing on whether to evict Ivette or Sarah she branded herself as a loose cannon. Dumb move.
Strengths: Beau who? He's completely under the radar. In his alliance of five (he's with April, Jennifer, Ivette & Maggie) he'd probably be the last one targeted for eviction.
Weaknesses: Everyone recognizes that he's flying under the radar. People hate that crap.
Secret Partner: Ivette
Dirty Little Secrets: He's gay. Not that you wouldn't be able to figure that out in about 10 seconds.
Prospects: Not bad. If an all-out war breaks out in the house, I can easily see Beau being the last man standing.
Strengths: He's funny and everyone likes him. He's also not as dumb as he acts, although nominating James & Sarah, who were part of his own alliance last week was pretty damn stupid.
Weaknesses: Because he's a big guy, people automatically think he's a threat.
Secret Partner: Rachel
Dirty Little Secrets: He's worked as a stripper.
Prospects: Fair. Once the annoying players are gone (see April & Ivette), Howie could have a big 'ole target on his back.
Strengths: She's not a complete moron. She's made overtures to get allies outside her big group.
Weaknesses: She's incredibly annoying and people could vote to evict her just for that. I would.
Secret Partner: Beau
Dirty Little Secrets: She's a lesbian. Although CBS doesn't air it, she's also a racist bitch who's called the muslim Kaysar "Osama".
Prospects: She's a goner. Beau and Maggie are the only people who don't want her out of the house.
Strengths: Wins competition after competition. He's smart and plays the game rather than worrying about whether people will like him.
Weaknesses: He lies even when he doesn't have to. Sometimes James thinks so far ahead that he makes moves to counter moves that other people haven't even made yet. He's overthinking everything.
Secret Partner: His girlfriend, Sarah, who was evicted this week.
Dirty Little Secrets: He's a Republican who enjoys Hannity & Colmes, but not Rush Limbaugh.
Prospects: Okay. Right now, everyone thinks they're going to vote James out, but if he can hang around for another week the alliances are going to implode and James can pick of the pieces and team up with other people.
Strengths: Brains. She's one of the few houseguests who can play the game using logic rather than emotion.
Weaknesses: Beauty. The other women don't like her and since they are playing the game with emotion, that could hurt Janelle.
Secret Partner: Ashlea, who was voted out in Week 1. However, she and Kaysar are very close and are essentially playing like partners.
Dirty Little Secrets: Oh, Janelle
Prospects: Excellent. In her alliance, people see Howie and Rachel as big threats and Kaysar as a dangerous brain. Janelle is a minor target. Plus, she's strong in the competitions and could easily win one when it's most important.
Strengths: Far more likeable than anyone else in her alliance.
Weaknesses: Too flighty. She could get caught for trying to kiss everyone else's ass.
Secret Partner: April
Dirty Little Secrets: Known as the blow job queen of Baylor.
Prospects: Fair. She's not a target yet, but I don't think she's smart enough to make new alliances once her old one completely falls apart.
Strengths: Super smart and strategic.
Weaknesses: He knows he's smart and can overplay his hand. That's why he was voted out in the first place.
Secret Partner: Michael, who was evicted in week 2. He and Janelle have formed a strong alliance.
Dirty Little Secrets: He's a virgin, but he has a huge crush on Janelle. He's also America's Choice, as 82% of the voters chose him to reenter the house this week.
Prospects: Fair. Everyone likes Kaysar, but they also respect his gameplay. He will need to win a lot of competitions and he'll need Janelle to win some too to stay alive.
Strengths: A strong personality and the ability to intimidate people into voting how she wants them to.
Weaknesses: She comes off as too tough and threatening.
Secret Partner: Eric, who was voted off in week 3
Dirty Little Secrets: I think Maggie's an open book. She has the world's worst poker face and I can't imagine she could ever keep a secret.
Prospects: Poor. If anyone in Kaysar's alliance wins Head of Household this week, she'll most likely be nominated for eviction.
Strengths: A smart player who's also good in competitions.
Weaknesses: Can, like Maggie, be a bit rough and can come off as a bitch.
Secret Partner: Howie
Dirty Little Secrets: She could secretly be in love with Howie.
Prospects: Good. I think Rachel could be our winner. She's smart and determined. The only thing I worry about is that everyone will see the partnership of Rachel and Howie as a threat and, since Howie is more likeable, they'll vote out Rachel instead.
So those are the houseguests. If you watched tonight's episode, you know that the Head of Household competition is still going on. I'll post an update when it's finished. And try to guess who will be nominated.

|THANK YOU KRIS! I enjoyed reading these and agree with you totally! I feel somewhat connected with the likes of Kaysar because since my husband is in Iraq helping military operations he has met the koolest Iraqi Muslim guy (translater) he is 25yr and is handsome like Kaysar and he is glad we are there for his (their) country. He asks that I pray this big problem (insurgents) goes away from their country. I was so happy to see that 82% Americans wanted Kaysar back instead of HOT headed Eric. Again thanks and I have you in my favorites now... keep up the good work...
