Monday night, as the Ball Smashers alliance was given a glimmer of hope they may have a possible ally in the Late Night Jamboree (LNJ) crew, their opposition in the Big Brother: Over the Top game, a major player in the LNJ was actually plotting with his alliance to dupe their opponents.
It should be noted that as it now stands, Shelby Stockton is the Head of Household (HOH), and Jason Roy is the co-HOH by virtue of winning the week six America’s Care Package. In a strategic move, Shelby nominated Whitney Hogg for eviction, while Jason chose Danielle Lickey to put on the block. According to Joker’s Updates, Alex Willett was nominated for eviction by America. Jason won the Power of Veto (POV) on November 7 and the drama that surrounded his win was the source of the issues now present in the Big Brother: Over the Top house.
According to Rod Has a Podcast (RHAP) live feed correspondent Taran Armstrong, Jason and Danielle, part of the LNJ, approached Shelby, Alex, and Morgan Willett, who make up the Ball Smashers, Monday night claiming they wanted to solidify a final five with the three women. Jason and Danielle further promised they would target one of their own alliance members, Justin Duncan, for eviction.
At that point in time, Jason and Danielle’s offer was truly Alex’s only light in a very dark tunnel, as she has been made aware she was the probable target to go home during Wednesday night’s live streamed eviction episode.
On November 8 at around 1 p.m. Big Brother: Over the Top house time, the week six Power of Veto (POV) ceremony was held and hopefulness could be seen on the faces of Shelby, Alex, and Morgan. Jason followed through with his plan and at the dismay of the Ball Smashers, saved Danielle with the POV and replaced her with Morgan.
Adding insult to injury, as the stunned women sat in the living room following the adjournment of the POV meeting, Justin cruelly said to them, “Suckers,” as he walked away with his alliance.
Outrage erupted among Shelby, Alex, and Morgan, who were still somewhat surprised about the move. They confronted Whitney, who was initially part of their alliance, but slowly aligned with the LNJ. Whitney’s allegiances were revealed on Monday following the POV when Whitney was unaware the Ball Smashers heard her telling Justin after Jason’s win they should have a celebratory dinner.
After the POV ceremony, Morgan asked Whitney if she was celebrating one of the Ball Smashers being evicted, which she denied, but the three women did not believe her.
The Ball Smashers then made their way into the backyard of the Big Brother: Over the Top house where the LNJ sat contently and asked why Jason lied to them. Shelby, Alex, and Morgan didn’t really didn’t get a straight answer, except Jason claiming the Ball Smashers lied every week about who they were going to vote to evict. Morgan stated she knew she was going home, however, Jason corrected her saying Morgan was staying and Alex was the target for eviction.
Jason then went on to clarify that he admires Alex’s game and believes she is a great strategist, so he wants her gone. He told the Ball Smashers he really likes them, except for Shelby, who he dislikes immensely.
Morgan again questioned Jason as to why he went to such lengths as to come to them and claim he and Danielle wanted to form a final five alliance. He told her he might have truly been considering aligning with them and was thinking about all options before him. This statement by Jason was probably untrue, as the LNJ laughed about the entire ruse prior to Jason and Danielle approaching the Ball Smashers regarding a fake alliance.
Shelby, Alex, and Morgan eventually went back into the Big Brother: Over the Top house and gathered in the bathroom area where Morgan broke down and cried. The women noted they should have known Jason was lying all along and expressed how they thought Jason, Justin, and Danielle were terrible people and the way they conducted themselves revealed each of their characters.
RHAP live feed correspondent Alex Kidwell notes that Jason and Danielle’s decision to dupe Alex, Morgan, and Whitney did not involve game play, but was likely just for entertainment value. Alex noted,
“There wasn’t really any strategic value to it whatsoever, and ultimately it did just kind of serve in making it that much more painful today [Tuesday] when the girls realized that they had kind of been had.”
Alex continued emphasizing there was simply no strategic value to this move, noting,
“The only thing that can possibly come from it is you’re going to further irritate people who you already have by the throat… It’s over so there’s no value to like… beating the dead horse, so to speak… the entertainment value is like a positive spin, just being straight malicious is the negative…”
As the Ball Smashers continued to sulk, Morgan was called to the Diary Room leaving Shelby and Alex alone. As the two women cried and attempted to console one another, they decided to make several confessions, including a major twist.
Before the twist was divulged by Alex, however, Shelby revealed that she is not really a waitress, but graduated from Pepperdine Law School and is waiting for her bar exam results. This made the two women chuckle at how “dumb” the other houseguests believe Shelby is, according to Joker’s Update. Shelby asked Alex not to tell Morgan about her secret.
Due to Shelby’s honesty, Alex decided to reveal the only real twist of the Big Brother: Over the Top season, as Morgan returned from the Diary Room and the three women headed to the HOH room. Joker’s Updates reports once inside, Alex yelled, “Morgan and I are sisters!” to which Shelby replied, “What the f***?” Shelby decided to tell her secret to Morgan as well and the women laughed at how little they knew about one another, but didn’t realize it.
Wednesday night is a double eviction Big Brother: Over the Top episode, thus, viewers will be voting during the live stream for which cast member they want to obtain America’s Care Package, which happens to be a POV. The lucky recipient will then make the decision as to whether the power will be used to save a nominee or not.
