TONIGHT'S BIG BROTHER SHOW AT 8PM
Previously on Big Brother
, with only four left in the game, Taylor
became HoH while Monte won the final PoV, meaning the Showmance was headed
to Finale Night. But Monte had to choose who would be joining them and he
decided to stay loyal to his boy, Turner, ending the hypnotist's trance.
Now, with the Final Three set, Monte, Taylor, and Turner look back at the
epic summer. Witness the LoLs, the TMIs, and the OMGs you didn't see. Plus,
Part I of the 3-part Final HoH competition kicks off. All this, right now,
on Big Brother
Day 78. Britt exits the BB House and the Final Three HGs celebrates. Monte
says 78 days ago he walked into the BB House and now he has a 1in three
chance to win $750k. He feels he has a better chance of securing Final Two
with Turner and Taylor than with Britt and Taylor.
There's only three left in the house, Turner remarks. Look at this, Taylor
says. We've cemented ourselves in BB History, Monte says. Turner can't
believe he's Final Three in BB. He's so close to winning he can taste it,
his head is spinning.
Quite the journey, Monte says. Quite the jury, Turner says. Taylor laughs.
Who would have thought, she tells us, one foot out the door week one, and 13
evicted HGs later, she's Final Three. She fought tooth and nail and now
she's so close to the $250k, she's not easing up now.
The Final Three toast each other with champagne. Here's to the Final Three.
After an HoH lockdown, they are greeted with a sumptuous surf and turf meal
downstairs. It's a celebration, Monte says as they rush downstairs. They
have steak, lobster tail, crab cakes, and more champagne. They started off
with 16 and now are down to 3, Monte says as the official remembrance
begins. Three Leftovers made it to Final Three, Taylor observes, it feels
like yesterday there were 16 HGs walking around the house.
Turner says 15 HGs, because Jasmine was rolling around. My take, he says,
but she may have been milking that. Queue tape of Jasmine's injury on Day 9
and her subsequent milking of said injury, asking other HGs to do for her.
Jasmine tells us the HGs are her worker ants and she's the Queen. They cook
for her and it's not the best but she holds her breath and swallows. Turner
says she's so annoying, and high maintenance. Alyssa says she's a "little"
Somehow, Jasmine finds a reason to complain about every act of generosity.
Turner tells Monte and Taylor as her Festie Bestie, they started off as
friends but ended not so much. Taylor asks Turner, do you know the Muffin
Man? OMG, Turner says, I'm the Muffin Man!
Turner says he put up with Jasmine but was very honest in the DR. Roll clips
of Jasmine and Turner DR sessions discussing MuffinGate. Turner says Alyssa
was a lot closer to Jasmine, but I wouldn't trust her with directions. Clips
of Alyssa being geographically challenged. Roll clips.
Michael says she won a geography B in school, and Alyssa is a bright, young
woman who could study harder. Turner tells us Alyssa made it far in the game
because there were no competitions based on geography. I'm not good at
geography, Alyssa admits, I'll have to buy a World Map.
Taylor says one person not easy to have around the house was Daniel. Monte
says he was an emotional wreck. Turner says he came out swinging after
Nicole was voted out. Taylor says sometimes you blow up and sometimes you
get blown out the door. Roll clip from Day 30. Daniel implodes in the
kitchen as the other HGs watch, Taylor eating Lays on the stairs as Monte
reminds him he told him to not use the Veto.
Back at the dinner, Monte says DJ Showtime got along with Daniel pretty
well. Your boy, Turner says. Flashback to Day 15, Monte starts to talk game
with Terrance who is distracted by Daniel's Murray's Pomade, a product made
for Black men. Daniel's used it since he was 13.
Back to the Remembrance, Taylor says it's difficult to live with someone who
refuses to shower. Turner gets defensive. I don't know why Pooch started
this propaganda, he says, but I shower every other day. Does my hair look
greasy to you? Flashback to Day 9.
Taylor tells us showering every other day is not OK. It's not right. You
open the door and can smell the funk of his laundry. Michael says Turner
wears it like a badge of honor he doesn't do laundry and nests in his dirty
Clips of dirty feet. I already showered, Turner says, I'm just dirty. He
realizes how cold a Have-Not shower is and decides to wait. He admits in DR
he could clean up better after himself. Turner admits to the Final Three he
didn't shower during Dyre Fest either.
What the hell happened during Dyre Fest, Monte asks? It was horrible, Turner
says, but I had the most prep for living outdoors after van life and
backpacking, but it was tough.
Day 45. Alyssa tells the other Dyre Fest HGs that the worst part has been
being drained by the sun and sharing a port-a-potty with four guys. Turner
describes it as being trapped in a hot car in a parking lot. Alyssa says she
felt like a hot pocket.
Meanwhile, in Big Brochella, the HGs complain about how cold it is. Taylor
wants a little heat. And the bugs, Alyssa says (bug clips, spraying
everything), sleeping on the hard ground (it's Astroturf, not dirt). The Big
Brochella HGs slept well while the Dyre Fest HGs didn't sleep at all.
Kyle says they have beanie weenies, a three out of 10. Turner says it's
next-level disgusting. Jasmine made chicken for the Big Brochella HG.
Turner, Kyle, and Alyssa discuss the beanie weenies. She did not like their
texture at all.
Monte says the best moments in the house were when they came together as a
family. Like when they celebrated the anniversary of Indy becoming a US
Citizen. Her 1 year anniversary, Monte adds. We're still people outside the
house, after the game is done, Taylor says.
Flashback to Day 13. Indy says the HGs celebrating this day with her is
amazing. People don't always know how hard it is to get here (becoming a US
Citizen) and all the years of hard work. I'm happy to share my story with
them. The HGs all have wine and toast Indy In the HoH room.
She moved here 9 years ago, she tells the HG, from a poor family. Her
parents still live in a bad place, it's not safe. She worked since she was
14 and dreamed of CA as her ticket out. She didn't speak English, cleaned
houses, did anything to make money.
She still dreams of bringing her parents out and show them the world she's
seen. It will happen someday. Joe says she's his dad's favorite player.
He'll want her to win over him. Being the child of an immigrant, Joe tells
us, he understands the hardships Indy's gone through.
Turner says that was an emotional day, but for emotions, laughing and
crying, there's the DR. That's where you let it all out, Monte says. Roll DR
clips from the HGs in various costumes and states of awakeness, expressing
complaints about other HGs and everything else.
Transition to the HGs crying in the DR, from the game, from the stress, from
the other HG, fighting away the tears (and losing). There's no crying in BB,
Daniel says, yeah, right.
There were ups and downs this summer, Taylor recalls, and with 16 HGs from
all walks of life, there are lessons to be learned. The toughest week, Monte
says, was when they found out about Kyle and his thoughts, words, and
actions being rooted in racism.
Flashback to Day 55. Terrance talks to Kyle in the car bedroom. He confesses
to playing a selfish game. It was hard to hear, Terrance says, but you have
an opportunity to learn. It just affected gameplay here but in the real
world, it affects lives. I still love you, Bro.
Terrance breaks it down for Kyle. We (Black HG) have never had the
opportunity to win this game because we were ostracized as soon as we came
into the house. Yes, the Cookout had an alliance, but it was a cultural
Terrance tells Kyle that they try to find a way to move past the boundaries
they were ingrained to believe since slavery, to be against each other.
During slavery, some were allowed to live in the house, while others work
the fields, to keep them from trusting each other.
Terrance continues to talk to Kyle about how men and women were separated to
keep them from forming relationships, there are a lot of things that
happened to them as a people that makes them so defensive even today. That's
what brought together the Cookout.
When you hear Taylor or Jasmine say they don't want to put up a Black woman,
I hope you understand where that is coming from. Black women feel like they
are always pitted against each other, they are each other's competition. One
is dark-skinned, the other light-skinned.
Even in our own community, Terrance explains, we have those types of
problems. In order to negate that, he says, he doesn't want to be in a
position where he has to hurt another Black person to get ahead himself.
Society does that enough already.
Kyle tells Terrance he realizes he doesn't even know what he doesn't know.
That's what's hard about asking questions. Utah was predominantly white,
this is all so new to him. If you forgive someone, Terrance says, you should
make them whole again.
I don't forgive or forget the action, Terrance tells Kyle, but as a people
from the South side of Chicago, we definitely knew what was racism and I
don't get that from you. You're a kid who just made a mistake.
This is the most kindness anyone's shown me my entire life, Kyle tells
Terrance, it shows the man you are. It took me to have four kids and a great
wife, Terrance credits. Thanks, Tracy, I appreciate ya. You're amazing, Kyle
says as they hug, you're a godsend.
Back to the Final Three, Taylor says Kyle had to learn some really hard
lessons, but I got to be a part of helping him discover a part of himself he
didn't realize was there and facilitate conversations he hadn't had before.
Flashback to Day 56, Kyle is alone in the car bedroom, wrapped in his gold
blanket. He tearfully tells Taylor how sorry he is. She understands the
initial reaction to being accused of racist things is to be defensive. All
of us try to be good people.
Taylor tells Kyle she's not his tutor but she is his friend. We will always
be able to talk as friends about this. She says Black women get the burden
of almost everything, ostracized, bullied, and not given the benefit of the
doubt, as our white counterparts are.
For me, Taylor tells Kyle, regardless of how she feels about Jasmine, she
didn't want to put her up because if I'm walking into the game saying I want
to carry the weight for Black women in the real world and BB world, who am I
to put a Black woman in danger.
Kyle tells Taylor he understands. That doesn't mean I won't vote someone's
ass out, Taylor says, or have conflict with, it just means I won't use my
power to put them in that position. You're doing a good job of going through
that journey, she says. TY he says, hugging.
Back to the Final Three dinner. There's still someone we haven't mentioned,
Taylor says. Ameerah or Pooch, Turner asks? No, she says, Peter! May he rest
in pieces, Peter. Monte laughs.
Taylor says. Day 59. Monte, Turner, Brittany, Michael, and Taylor are in the
gym when they hear a beeping noise. They talk about what would happen if
they had to evacuate the BB House. What if someone dies in the house?
Michael thinks they'd cancel the season.
What if you're up first and cooking breakfast, Taylor hypothesizes, and you
choke on a hashbrown and die, then someone walks out and finds you dead on
the floor, and exclaims Peter! Imagine BB says Wakey Wakey HG, and everyone
wakes up but Peter is dead in his bed.
They are all laughing as Taylor says, Peter! Wake up, Peter! Peter, Michael
mimics, Peter, please go to the DR. They are all laughing and crying for
poor Peter. Please change your battery, Taylor says, Peter's natural battery
has expired! Peter!
Taylor tells us that Peter has died in every scenario, he died in his sleep,
and while eating yogurt, his heart stops. What if Peter died in the shower?
How long would it take for HGs to notice? RIP Peter, she says in the gym.
Michael says not funny but he can't stop laughing.
Taylor says because Peter's not real, it's funny. Does Peter's face get
grayed out on the Memory Wall? Oh, Peter! Rest in peace, Peter, BB says,
displaying the picture of a man named Peter on the Memory Wall. (Can anyone
identify who that is?)
There are times I wish I was a fly on the wall, Taylor says, back in
present. When Joe was around, Turner says. Joe was a fly guy, Taylor says.
He liked swatting flies, Monte jokes.
Day 34. There's a fly on the table mocking Joe. You're plan's going
perfectly, huh, says Joe, a towel poised in his hand. Keep rubbing those
hands together. He throws the towel at the fly. And he lived? He swats at
the fly with the towel.
There's enough people in this house, Joe tells us, without flies moving in.
I'm evicting them ASAP. Clips of flies mocking Joe and Joe crusading against
them. There's a technique, he says. Don't whip me, Alyssa says as Joe lines
up against his prey. He finally gets one. First the flies, he tells us, then
the houseguests. Alyssa calls him their very own human fly swatter. The
Memory Wall shows a greyed-out picture of Peter, the fly.
Back to the Final Three, Turner says he'll miss being able to go to the DR
and ask for anything. Trust me, Monte says, we did. Roll clips of outlandish
requests of BB: pumpkin syrup for Turner, raspberries, blueberries,
blackberries, and berries for Indy, a pet for Michael and Joe.
Monte needs left-contact lenses (he only brought the right ones), and Nicole
needs oat milk for Turner, who's allergic to almonds. Jasmine wants to know
how long it will take. Taylor ate all of Monte's dark chocolate-covered
pretzels. Indy wants a Truth or Dare Jenga.
Indy has lost all her bikini bottoms. Jasmine wants production to sing her a
birthday song with the HG. Chicken wings, a pinata, and fingerprints for a
birthday card. Is this a birthday card or the county jail, Turner wonders.
Extra beer, Jasmine says, a pink pony.
Are you still there? Taylor asks for a very bubbly bubble bath. OK, now I'm
The remembrance dinner is over and the Final Three have glasses of champagne
on the livingroom couches. Taylor says it's been a wild ride, and she's
happy to be sitting Final Three with the two of them (Monte, Turner).
There's still competitions to be won, Turner says. Let the best Leftover
win, Monte says.
The Final Three toast to BB24 and head out to the backyard. A huge grill
(pad) has been created, with three hot dogs on pedestals mounted vertically.
Alongside are condiments and utensils: BB Ketchup, BB Mustard, BB BBQ. The
HGs come outside and climb onto the grill to reach their wieners.
It looks like a BBQ tonight, Taylor says. This is huge, she tells us, the
final HoH controls their fate in the game and decides who they sit next to
in Final Two. You have to win two out of the three competitions to be Final
HoH. The pressure's on. They all can compete.
Taylor reads from a card. This competition is called Weiner Palooza. The
rules are simple - hold on to your wiener like your life in this game
depends on it. Because it does. The wiener will spin left and right, and
rock back and forth, giving them the wildest ride of their lives.
To be the top hot dog, Taylor instructs, do not fall off. The last HGs
holding onto their wiener will be grillin' and chillin' 'til Finale Night,
guaranteed to play in the Final HoH competition Part III, live. Who's ready
to play Wiener Palooza?
Taylor has leggings and puts on a long sleeve shirt over a sports bra.
Turner has on a t-shirt and shorts. Monte has on a t-shirt and sweatpants.
The Final Three all mount their wieners, which have cut-out hand-holds
around their sides. The wieners begin moving in unison.
I came here to win BB, Monte tells us, and now I'm in the Final Three. The
horn sounds and the wiener roast is underway. From here on out, he says,
it's everybody for themselves. I've dreamt about winning, about what it can
do for my life, so nobody's going to stop me now.
The wieners are rotating slowly. I cannot believe I made the Final Three,
Turner tells us, I've worked so insanely hard to make it to this point,
there is no chance I'm letting up now. I want to be the Final HoH, he says,
and decide who sits next to me, so I have to win this competition. So this
vegetarian, Turner concludes, is ready to grab a giant wiener and hold on
for dear life.
Taylor says I went from thinking I was going home week one, to having a real
chance to sit in one of those Final Two chairs and winning the whole thing.
Now that I've come this far, I'm going to change this game, I'm going to
make history and be a Black woman in the Final Two chairs.
And, Taylor adds, ultimately, win. The wieners start moving faster and
rocking harder and the HGs all say, oh no! Smoke starts coming up from the
grill. Holy Moley, says Turner. I feel like rotisserie chicken, Taylor says.
Yeehaw, Monte says as the wieners go to extremes.
Who will win the final three-part HoH competition Monte, Taylor, or Turner?
And who will win the $750K grand prize? Plus, who did you choose as
