On Big Brother 20, Tyler and Kaycee make plans to get to the Final 2. The houseguests receive a visitor and reminisce about their summer in the BB house.

All of Tyler’s hard work has paid off as his dream of making it to the Top 3 has been realized. Of course, it’s a bittersweet victory since Angela left the house. But he is determined to stay true to his goal of going all the way to the end with a worthy opponent.

Kaycee feels horrible about having to personally evict one of her best friends in the house, but like Tyler, but she feels amazing about making it to the Final 3.

Kaycee and Tyler strategize the best way to knock JC out of the final three-part HoH competition. Since Kaycee knows physicality is her strength, they decide she should aim to win the endurance component. Tyler will take JC on in anything that generally takes some neurons.

Tyler and Kaycee have been loyal to each other since jump, and Kaycee has no intention of breaking their deal. Tyler seems set either way. He has final deals with both Kaycee and JC, so if JC somehow pulls another upset, he’s likely to choose Tyler over Kaycee.

JC is a tad deluded about his game play, telling Tyler and Kaycee they’ve all known the entire time what’s been going on in the house. Wasn’t it just recently JC was completely shocked to watch Brett walk out the door? He also appears clueless that out of these three, he’s the odd man out.

Big Brother  “legend” Jeff Schroeder (Seasons 11 and 13) stops by to pay the houseguests a visit. This is the filler episode where the remaining houseguests sit around and relive the highs and lows of the summer.

Jeff, who has hosted a ton of Big Brother interview segments, serves as the moderator. It’s up to him to get and keep the conversation rolling in a way that seems more organic than Kaycee, JC and Tyler sitting around getting prompted by producers.

Jeff brings up the massive amount of blindsides that have occurred this summer. I waver about whether being voted out when you’re on the block is an actual blindside — even if you’re a pawn. Swaggy C was a blindside, Brett was a blindside, but if you’re sitting in the hot seat come eviction night, there’s ALWAYS a chance you’re going home.

On Big Brother 20, the people most clueless about what was actually going on in the game was anyone not part of the Level Six alliance (for the most part). Every season, players are left out of the loop. If they weren’t, it wouldn’t be Big Brother. Poor Faysal never knew what was up when it came to the votes.

Jeff asks the Final 3 what they consider to be one of the craziest moments, and all of them agree that Haleigh’s house meeting is at the top (Haleigh outed herself as the Hacker and chaos ensued).

Jeff and Jordan remain one of the most adorable and enduring Big Brother love stories, so, naturally, the conversation shifts to showmances. There’s Swaggy C and Bayleigh, Tyler and Angela and the more elusive Haleigh and Faysal. No matter what Haleigh says, she’s just not that into you, Faysal.

Other notable Big Brother 20 highlights include: quirky Kaitlyn, the Rockstar-Brett showdown, JC’s complete mangling of the word “hiatus” (he lands on “yatus” instead), a clash between JC and Sam over a HoH comp (she thought he threw it and went off the rails) and the season’s array of creative punishments.

After the walk down memory lane, Kaycee, Tyler and JC finally get down to the business of competition.

As all Big Brother fans know, the final Head of Household competition is a three-parter. Whoever wins part one, automatically advances to part three, where the winner chooses who will sit next to them on finale night.

For this part of the comp, the houseguests serve as test pilots for Big Brother jetpacks. The goal is to simply hang on for the longest. But these prototypes have some “kinks,” so this won’t be easy.
