Hey, it's been like 7 months! Yet it somehow feels like yesterday when I last made a post on here..
Hope y'all are doing good! I'm not doing too great personally. My family (including me) are all sick with covid and my dad's in the hospital at the moment. We're not allowed to see him due to all the restrictions, but I talked to him on the phone today and he sounds much better than a few days ago. My grandfather also got into the hospital on Christmas but he's also doing better so he should be out in a few days. Hopefully I won't have to go there, I'm having some minor difficulties breathing and some pressure on my chest but I should be good for now... It would be ironic if this is my last blog post, no? Oh well, we'll get through covid in some way or the other. I'm trying to stay positive.
So what's new since we last met? Well, I turned 24 back in October. Threw a huge party on Discord with like 20-25 people. It was a MESS but we all had fun, it was probably one of the best birthdays I've ever had! I also started getting more active on YouTube, I've posted two song covers since then and my Swedish gaming channel has started to take off a little bit. Pretty excited about that!
#BB22 ... happened. We finally got an all-stars and somehow the pre-season was better than the season overall. I was so happy to see Kaysar and Janelle back, but ugh.. They should've stayed much longer. At least we got one good thing out of it - Da'Vonne won AFP which she absolutely deserves. Hopefully we'll get a better season this year.
One thing I'm definitely hyped about is Eurovision. We already have Albania's song (which I wasn't a big fan of) but Melodifestivalen starts in less than 5 weeks. Hopefully we'll get some good music, 2020 was an incredible year for music (Chromatica, Future Nostalgia, Bulletproof etc) so I hope 2021 can follow that track! ... No pun intended.
Has anything new happened on this site? I know Flash has stopped being supported so I'm kinda curious how competitions will work (maybe Tengaged stopped using Flash a long time ago? The practice links I found don't work, but it's probably been like that for a long time). Is Randomize still absent? Is there a mod team? Any new games? I haven't even opened up the site since May!
I hope you're all staying safe during these times, it looks like it won't be long until we can all return to normal considering the vaccine is rolling out. We'll have to deal with this stuff for a long time but hopefully the restrictions will start to ease away by summer or fall. Fingers crossed!
EDIT; Also, is it just me or are some images missing from the site? Like the color levels?
Taking returnee seasons from Big Brother, and I won't disclose how I came about these rankings in this particular blog as to not spoil anybody, but I'll make another blog talking all about it. Let's face it, you aren't going to go through and watch the whole series. Also, decide how many seasons you want to watch before the season (let's say you pick 2, pick the top 2 off my rankings and watch them in CHRONOLOGICAL order.) These rankings are not the order in which you should watch them.

This is one of the least predictable finales, as I do think our final two is set with these HOH results. Let’s rank.
3. Enzo Palumbo- Going into this season finale, I am ROOTING for Enzo, but the only possible way he sits in final two is if Nicole or Cody cut one another, and I just don’t see that happening. Cody knows Enzo played way better than Nicole, and Nicole seems too loyal to Cody. Enzo will probably get third place, which sucks, because I do think he played THE best social game the show has ever seen. He was incredible, and I do think the Meow Meow is a top 10 Big Brother player. I really do. I hope we see a miracle tonight. Rooting for Enzo.
2. Nicole Franzel- Nicole will not be the first two time champion UNLESS she wins final HOH and cuts Cody. But we know she is never going to cut Cody, meaning Cody and her will be the final two, and she’ll lose pretty handily. She’ll get a few votes, but Cody did so much more this season, and I think being a winner doesn’t just earn you a win (as Dan Gheesling showed us on 14). If anything, it hurts her because she should’ve played better for a winner. Dr. Will and Dan played SO well after winning, whereas Nicole floated her way along the season until the end when she had to make moves. A good strategy if the person she’d be sitting next to wasn’t so dominant from the START.
1. Cody Calafiore- Cody has really dominated this season, with very few speed bumps along the way. Him not winning would be a shock. I think, if Nicole won final HOH and cut him, it would be a winning move from her, but it looks like she wants to take him. Whether he takes Nicole or Enzo, I really think he’ll win either way. It may not be a sweep, but I do think he’ll win with 6 or 7 votes at least. He’s dominated challenges, social relationships, and maintained great alliances. The only reason I don’t love Cody is because of some pre-gaming rumors AND because they played up the “dumb” angle all season. But as a player, he was undoubtedly in control more than anyone else this season. Well done.
Never expected this final three, but here we are. Rooting for Enzo, think it’s gonna be Cody, hoping it’s not Nicole. That’s where we’re at.
Winner- Cody Calafiore
Second Place- Nicole Franzel
Third Place- Enzo Palumbo
A statistic measuring how often HouseGuests were on the right side of things. If you are the HoH or you vote correctly, that's a successful week, if you are nominated or vote incorrectly, that's an unsuccessful week. If you win the jury vote, that's successful, if you lose, that's unsuccessful. Not necessarily a metric for who played the best game, but an interesting look at how much people were in control. Not including any Day 1 evictions.

Any surprises? According to this, the new Mount Rushmore of BB is Paul, Tyler, Dan, and Dr. Will.
After the shit show of Season 13, rigging for the vets to win. I mean ok it was okay before 12 but after 13 is when it got ridiculous. Maybe if they did an All Star season around season 14 or so. But to wait 13 seasons after the first season of All Stars is just ridiculous. We missed out on seeing so many better players. #bb22
