On the bright side, Lawon Exum has made Big Brother history.
Unfortunately, after Lawon's absurd strategy backfired so horribly, his place in history is guaranteed by having made the worst move in 13 seasons.
The worst part is that you could see it coming, and by the time the votes were cast, you knew how the final portion of the episode would play out.
Between his brilliant idea and Kalia backtracking on her original plan, the newbies have collectively proved wholly incapable of playing Big Brother.
THG recaps Thursday's Big Brother installment below ...
It's hard to even know where to start with Lawon's stupidity at this point. Why on Earth would he assume, just because there was a chance he could come back, that he would automatically do so, with special powers no less? Minus 20.
Even Julie had to laugh at that one. Plus 8.
Let's also give Minus 10 to Kalia for not sticking to her guns and putting up Jordan, thus forcing the house to vote out Rachel and take their chances. Even if Rachel returned, just nominate her again! Such spineless ineptitude.Plus 8 for the amusing Matt and Ragan feature. We miss those guys!
Ragan coined the term "crybernating" for Rachel's nonsense. Plus 5.
Plus 6, somewhat reluctantly, for Lawon's odd behavior prior to the eviction, strutting around, swearing and spouting lies for no reason at all.
Lawon was sent packing unanimously, leaving Rachel safe and sound for another week. It's hard to blame people for voting off the guy who wants to be voted off, but still. Daniele, clearly, regretted this immediately. Minus 4.
Plus 7 for Rachel's expression as Julie revealed the twist on the twist.
America narrowly chose Brendon over Dominic. Come on. Minus 9.
Brendon absolutely slaughtered Lawon in the competition, which was so stacked in his favor (not that CBS knew who he'd be playing against) that his victory was basically assured simply by showing up. Minus 12.
Predictability aside, the guy is good at this stuff. Plus 7.
Catching a glimpse of clean-shaven Adam made us think "who is that guy" at least five times over the course of an hour. Plus 3 for switching things up.
Dani took her eyes off the ball this week, overthinking things and underestimating Rachel, who she wanted out so badly. Minus 9, on Evel Dick's behalf.
Watch out for Shelly. She's playing everybody. Plus 5.
There was no time to crown the new HoH (on CBS at least) or to hear Lawon describe what the heck he was thinking. Eh, probably for the best. Plus 5.
EPISODE TOTAL: -10. SEASON TOTAL: -10.
