We begin with the skiing competition Ross let’s us know that Omarosa’s been trashtalking him and he feels like he has to win. Mark says it is time for him to actually win something to build his resume for the final two. Marissa is praying for …well nothing. She was the first to take an ugly fall. Ari was next, and Omarosa’s hopes and dreams were dashed. Ross cuts a deal with Mark. Mark struggles with whether or not to take Ross’s deal. He is doing much better at the challenge than Ross. Ross begs. Ross plays the “Mom card”, saying he wants to hear from his mom who has cancer. Mark agreed. Last night, Ross gave Mark the HOH room for the last night in the house. Marissa says she is not going to be panic when she gets on the block.
Ross cries to Ari and Marissa about being the fat, gay, kid from a farm town who now has a chance at winning this game. Ari promises to take Ross if she wins HOH. If that happens, Ari has a huge chance of winning. Ari and Omarosa are nominated for eviction. Ross has a final two with everyone in the house except Omarosa. Omarosa dressed to the nines for the eviction ceremony.
The veto comp was the dates challenge, but they also had to climb a wall. Ross and Marissa both studied for this all season.Both Ross and Marissa got all the dates right. Omarosa only got one right! Marissa was very slow on the wall. Ross wins in the tiebreaker for having the fastest time.
Ross chose not to use the power of veto. And we are finally up to the live part! Omarosa knows she is going and she gives this weird religious speech to Ari saying that she knows God is going to give her the crown tonight. Then in her final plea to stay, Ari says that coming into the house she was known for two minutes of her life and she is happy to show more about her life and she wants to stay. Omarosa gives a religious speech again and ends with her White House Moment of the night basically saying we have to get to the ballot box and vote against hatred and bigotry. Omarosa is eliminated in a 2-0 vote.
Omarosa says she was authentic in the house and it was a great opportunity to let people know the real her. She says she was thrilled to be on the show because she is such a superfan. Julie asks about her remark that she the nation is not okay. She seems to be changing her mind about that. l
Next it is time for the final HOH comp. No matter who wins, Ross is in the final two. It’s just a matter of who wins. The HOH is a mental one there are fake tweets between two houseguests each have a statement in all caps, one is true and the other is false. They have to pick the evicted house guest with the fake news on their timeline. All the tweets are facts from the house, like the date they were evicted. Ross and Marissa are the most likely to win this. Ross does NOT want Marissa to win. Marissa was the only one to get the first one right! Everyone got the second one right. Everyone got the third one right. Everyone got the fourth one right. Marissa is going to win this. Everyone got the fifth one right. If Marrisa gets the last one right, she is the final HOH! MARISSA MISSES THE LAST QUESTION! It’s a three-way tie between Ross, Mark and Marissa! Marissa is devastated.
The tiebreaker question is “How long in seconds was the Rocky Mountain Fly HOH comp?” It was 600 seconds. Marissa won the final HOH. I think Ross still wins but not if all the girls vote for Marissa! I think she should take Mark to the final two. She could beat him. But she takes Ross. Second place gets her $50K though!
Ari and Mark go talk to Julie. She asks if Marissa just gave away half a million dollars. They both politely dodge the question by talking about how great their friendship is. Every talks about how hard it is in the Big Brother house when they come out. It really was. There are no windows and the short schedule meant they almost never saw the sun. Ari says the experience was better than Miss Universe. Mark said it was a really hard but really great experience.
Marissa’s win really lead to the excitement in the finale. This makes things slightly more interesting. But I do think Ross wins.
Brandy asks what they regret most about how they played the game. Marissa says got her it was when two friends were on the block. She should have said evicting Shannon because Shannon hates them both and her vote is up for grabs. Ross says he regrets making a final two with Brandi on day two that he could not keep.
James asks if it was important to stay true to your word or would you do anything to win. Ross says that throughout the game as power shifts he has to pivot to a new opportunity. He says he was true to his character. Marissa said everything she said, she meant at the time.
Shannon asks why one deserves to win over the other. Marissa says… I dunno what she said. Something about being true to the girls. She makes no sense. Ross talked about pivoting some more. He says that he also changed his game play to let Keisha and Metta go home.
Omarosa has the last question. What was their biggest lie and how did their strategy change. Marissa said her strategy never changed and her biggest lie was not telling Chuck he was going home when she knew he was. Ross also says his strategy never changed. His biggest lies were not keeping his word to Brandi and not telling all the truth all the time.
Marissa didn’t prepare a speech. She says that she took Ross to the final two even knowing he will probably beat her because she stayed true to their final two. Ross says he has two HOHs and three powers of veto. He says he too was loyal to Marissa even though everyone knows he was going to take Mark. Chuck picked the person who “played the straightest game.” Interesting word. Keisha says she voted for the person who was the most upfront and “played the straightest game.” Do they realize what they are saying? Shannon said she voted for the person who was a little more honest with her. Metta tells Marissa he loves her. Metta says he is just going to close his eyes and pick a key! OMG! Metta is an idiot. Brandi says she is voting for the shadiest person in the house. James says he is taking emotion out of his vote, and that their speeches changed the way that he is voting!!! Omarosa basically says she is voting for Marissa. Ari is struggling to decide who to vote for. She says she voted for the person with the most honest game. I think Marissa may win this! Mark said he loves them both but one person since day one was on his side. That’s a Ross vote. This is going to be close.
Before we see who wins, the jury talks to Julie about what they saw on TV and asked what they were surprised by. Shannon says the fact that everyone was trying to backdoor her and that the two people she liked the most, Ross and Marissa stabbed her in the back. Marissa says she knew the only way to get her out was to backdoor her. Ross says Shannon is the best who ever played this game. Keisha seems angry at Ross for having so many alliances. He really should have explained that better. Metta said he was amazed by Ross’s gameplay because he played without integrity.
They play Brandi’s goodby message to James. It wasn’t that bad considering it was Brandi. James tells Brandi that in real life he has so much love her. She says “me too.” Neither of them mean it.
It’s time to count the votes! It takes five votes to win. Mark voted Ross, Ari voted Marisssa. Omarosa voted for Marissa. James voted for Marissa. Brandi voted for Ross. Metta voted for Ross. We are tied, three to three. Shannon voted for Marissa. Keisha voted for Marissa! Marissa WON! I love a surprise winner! Marissa is hysterical and I can’t believe how happy I am for her, since I was pulling for Ross. Chuck also voted for Marissa!
America’s favorite player was between Shannon, James and Ross. Ross won! So he gets $75K! Ross said he turned to Marissa in the commercial and asked if he was the villain. No Ross, most people just didn’t understand Big Brother gameplay and the people who voted were actual Big Brother fans. I voted for James. Marissa was hated by the Big Brother fans mostly for her incessant talking and saying “like” every third word on the live feeds. They were really mean to her but this will both piss them off and make her not care what they thought.
