If you’re a fan of Tom Inexperienced, then you probably have been completely entertained by Superstar Large Brother these previous few days! Once we final left off, Tom Inexperienced was simply left shell-shocked after the shock eviction of his finest pal, Kato Kaelin. Tom was satisfied that it was he who can be despatched packing. The following few days that adopted would put Tom on a whirlwind tour of Superstar Large Brother, from backside to prime and again round once more…ending in a stay double-eviction episode this previous Friday that units the stage for the Superstar Large Brother Finale that’s coming Wednesday, Feb 13th.
As I at all times state up-front – and very like my Survivor column for this exact same outlet – what I plan to convey you this season isn’t precisely a blow-by-blow “recap” of the present. As a substitute, this consists of my ideas, evaluation, and response to the episode (or episodes) that we simply witnessed. In different phrases, I’ll assume that you simply’ve seen the episode(s) every time. So please, please, PLEASE, if you don’t want to have the present spoiled, don’t learn any additional till you’ve seen the episode(s)!

So it’s been season, proper? It has flown by so extremely quick, that it’s nearly laborious to evaluate, however I feel that Superstar Large Brother Season 2 has up to now served its function: Tacky, disposable enjoyable. Large Brother just isn’t a sport reserved for intellects, and this isn’t any kind of dig on the sport or its followers! There’s nothing improper was leisure that’s kind of digestible and light-weight. And whereas some celebrities have actually stolen the highlight (I see you Tamar Braxton!), with the numbers whittling down, we’re beginning to get some nice moments with the remainder of the group (like Dina Lohan and Kandi Burruss), whom up till just lately haven’t fairly made their mark on the sport.
All that modified although since Kato left the sport. Kandi has confirmed herself to be a strong-willed particular person who has dealt with herself properly within the sport. She has additionally managed to influence the sport in main, delicate methods. For instance, though it was via Tom Inexperienced‘s HOH, it was Kandi who had recommended that he put up Natalie Eva Marie, which led to her being evicted. Her as soon as fragile relationship with Tamar has turn into THE relationship to observe this season, because the duo of Kandi and Tamar appears to be probably the most highly effective pair left within the sport.
To go off on a tangent for a second although, my favourite scene of the previous week has GOT to be the one the place Dina realizes that her relationship of five-years might be a catfish scenario. The best way Kandi appears at Dina when she discovers that Dina has by no means really seen this man (“he doesn’t use an iPhone”) is probably my favourite facial features of the season. Then to counter this with how Tamar hilariously reacted, simply reveals you the totally different types that Kandi and Tamar convey to the desk.
Dina nonetheless hasn’t had a lot of an influence on the sport, and I don’t assume she’s performed sufficient at this level to have any likelihood of profitable. However at the very least she offered us with this scene. If there’s anyone want I’ve for the finale night time, it’s that the Superstar Large Brother producers monitor this dude down and both unite him with Dina on the Dwell finale or expose that she’s been catfished.
However once more, the final two days have been all about Tom Inexperienced. Having misplaced his one true ally within the sport, he went on to win HOH, shifting the sport in a serious means…following this up with a POV win in addition. Regardless of having had it out for Ricky Williams the complete season, on the final minute he determined to drag Ricky off the block and put up Lolo Jones, successfully ending their reign of supremacy. Was it transfer, or ought to he had nonetheless pushed for Ricky to go? I don’t blame Tom for not having any belief that anybody else within the sport would vote for the particular person he wished. And on the time Tom hoped the transfer can be some kind of olive department to Ricky.
It didn’t find yourself mattering as soon as Tom was despatched dwelling because the second sufferer of the double-eviction night time. Nonetheless, let’s face it: Tom Inexperienced had an uphill battle the entire sport. He actually was out of strikes to make. I give him credit score for the tried shake-up, and the chaos that it introduced did make for some thrilling TV.
Episode Take-Away: With Tom now out of the sport, the subsequent HOH is essential. After all the chaos, we’re down to 5 gamers: Ricky, Lolo, Tamar, Kandi, and Dina. The presumed front-runners should be Ricky and Lolo who’re nonetheless aligned, however don’t rely out Kandi and Tamar simply but. Since it’s unlikely Dina will win HOH, if any of the opposite 4 win they’re possible going to place up the opposing pair, and in doing so, the vote will probably be Dina and an ally voting for who goes dwelling.
As a result of Dina is aligned with Kandi, which means odds are barely in favor of Ricky or Lolo going dwelling subsequent. Nevertheless, if considered one of them wins HOH, they will get Tamar or extra possible, Kandi, out of the sport (even when Dina have been to vote for Tamar, if Ricky/Lolo voted for Kandi, the HOH – on this state of affairs being Ricky/Lolo – would have the ability to break the tie and ship Kandi out.
Julie Chen additionally dropped the bomb that the next HOH winner (at Closing 4), would mainly get to hand-pick the one particular person they need to go to the Finals with, formally eliminating the opposite remaining two. I’m not an enormous fan of this energy twist personally. These gamers have labored too laborious for the complete sport to return right down to only one HOH comp for that a lot energy.
But when loyalty lives, contemplating my above situations, then there are solely TWO ultimate outcomes that make sense: It should both be Ricky and Lolo within the finals or Tamar and Kandi. The one different outlier can be if Dina, by some miracle, gained that ultimate HOH, by which case she would most likely take along with her the surviving member of the Tamar/Kandi alliance.
Fast Be aware! I respect that you’re studying this recap! There are solely TWO episodes of Superstar Large Brother remaining this season, which implies that there’s just one Recap left! It should come following the Season Finale, which is Wednesday, Feb. 13th.
