An Exit Too Early

Big Brother: All Stars | CBS | Week 3

HoH & Nominations

The house is firmly against Janelle and Kaysar, and yet another new alliance, “The Slick Six” is formed; they are: Tyler, Enzo, Dani, Da’Vonne, Bayleigh, and Cody.

For the Have-Not transfer, Enzo and Cody volunteer to be have-nots; Christmas chooses Bayleigh and Nicole chooses Janelle (with a snide comment, much to everyone’s shock!).

Janelle and Kaysar ask Memphis if he wins Safety Suite he will save one of them, and he says he will… in the DR though he says he’s not trying to win, as to no anger his alliance.

Tyler tells his alliance he’s thinking Kaysar and Janelle; Dani and Cody agree. Da’Vonne asks her alliance members to give her the safety plus 1 if they win, getting them paranoid; she says she just wants the punishment, since she’s never had one.

In the last Safety Suite comp, the houseguests competing (Nicole, Memphis, Enzo, and Dani) had to get from one end of the room to the other while dodging “lasers” in order to “steal” a safety orb (giant ball). They then had to get back to the start with the ball, while dodging all the lasers. If they touched a laser, they’d have to start again.

Enzo wins with a very speedy 4 minutes, 41 seconds, and gives his plus 1 to Christmas; in the DR he says he’s trying to reel her in as an ally. Da’Vonne looks unhappy about not being chosen for the plus 1, which annoys Tyler, because he says she doesn’t trust him.

In the DR, Janelle says she knows Memphis threw the competition (he did), and that he’s the type of player who doesn’t want to make any moves. Janelle and Kaysar separately make their cases to Tyler, but ultimately he nominates them both for eviction.

Power of Veto

Tyler, Janelle and Kaysar pick Cody, Bayleigh and Memphis, respectively, to compete. Long story short, Kaysar and Janelle are eliminated in round 1, and Cody ultimately wins. In the DR, everyone thinks Memphis threw the competition (he didn’t).

Christmas and her ‘babies’

Christmas’ punishment for being Enzo’s plus 1 is having to take care of a ‘baby’ plush toy for the week; this annoying cute plushy whines and cries and Christmas has to tend to it. The announcer lets Christmas know that another ‘baby’ is born, and another, and another, and ultimately Christmas has to care for 9 (!) crying plush toys. They joke that Enzo is the father, and Bayleigh jokes the Meow Meow needs to be spayed an neutered!

Janelle makes a case to Cody and says if she uses the veto she’ll vote with him for the next 2 weeks; she wants to take out floaters. In the DR, Cody ‘considers’ it, but he’s been gunning for Janelle since day 1.

In the least shocking move all season, Cody doesn’t use the veto, and the nominations stay the same.


In the DR Tyler says he’s re-thinking his moves because he’s getting rid of big targets and moving himself up the list. The Slick Six meets to decide who to evict; Bayleigh brings up the fact that if Janelle is evicted, this will be the third week a woman goes home.

Da’Vonne says she wants Janelle to stay because she’s in an alliance with a bunch of guys, and Janelle can take them out down the line. She tells Janelle to talk to Kevin to see if she can get his vote. Janelle tells Bayleigh she has some votes, and it might all boil down to Cody’s vote to keep her. Janelle talks to Cody and offers her wedding ring as “collateral”. Janelle is playing this game!

David thinks Da’Vonne tried to get him out of the house; David tells Da’Vonne that Tyler and Cody told him there was attempt to flip the votes from Nicole A (#RookieMistake). He then basically tells Tyler he’s in an alliance with Da’Vonne and Bayleigh. Tyler tells Cody what happened and they say they’re done with David.

In her nominee speech, Janelle says they’re the coolest bunch of people she’s played Big Brother with; Kaysar basically says he just wants to keep playing the game.

Dani surprisingly votes for Kaysar, which flusters Julie! Ultimately only Dani and Enzo vote to evict Kaysar, and Janelle becomes the third person evicted from the house.

In the exit interview, Julie spills the beans about the votes and the alliances; she tells Janelle that Memphis had a hand in her eviction, and that basically trusting Memphis was her mistake!

At the HOH competition, Julie lets the houseguests know the Safety Suite twist is done. By random draw Nicole, Da’Vonne, David, Ian, Enzo and David are chosen to compete first. They must roll 3 balls up a ramp and sink the balls in the holes at the top… HOH TBD!

So Janelle is officially out of the game, but you can’t say she didn’t try her best to stay! I understand why the rest of the house wanted to get her out, but it does sting that it’s only week 3. Janelle is such a strong player – physically, mentally, and socially – and it was so fun watching her play the game, even if only for 3 weeks. Can’t wait until she can come back in season 30 for All Stars 3! M
