This past weekend I had the opportunity to work with the amazing Reality Rush crew. I had worked with Justin and Pete many times before, but this time was different because we were in Seattle. I was super excited when I found out that we would be working on Mercer Island, which is basically the Hamptons of Seattle. I had never worked a “Big Brother” event before, so I wasn’t too sure what to expect but knew that it would be fun because the boys were there and they always bring good energy.

We were told that it was the hottest weekend of the year for Seattle. I honestly expected some rain, only because that’s how we all know Seattle to be, but we must’ve brought the sunny CA weather because it was hot, hot, hot. By the time I arrived Saturday morning all the players were amped up and ready to go. Pete and Justin had been prepping them since Thursday evening. I could tell this was going to be an exciting game!

There was much to do and prepare for during the course of the 2 days I was there. Justin and Pete had come up with such interesting and exciting games for the gang to play. I watched each player(s) sadly be dismissed after each elimination. They were all super competitive and still wanted to be a part of such an explosive game. Once Sunday rolled around, the final elimination took place late afternoon, it was super intense and I loved every minute of it.

The game kicked off with a series of challenges to crown duo HOH’s Lindsay Berger and Ryan Stanbery. The houseguests spent the night making their cases to the HOH’s on why they should stay and who should be nominated and first thing Saturday morning Chris Sanderson and Matt Godofsky were on the block. In the end, Chris was sent packing and the reality of the game settled in for the rest of the contestants.

Throughout the rest of the day contestants faced off in HOH and POV competitions and had to adjust to new twists in the game. In the second round, former HOH and Big Brother superfan Lindsay was backdoored for being too much of a threat and one by one friends of the birthday girl were evicted out of the house including Shauna Gamoran, Ryan Stanbery, Kristina Sanderson, Darci Abramson and Adam Copley.

At the end of night two, the former evicted houseguests fought to return to the game and Ryan was victorious vowing not to make the same mistakes and with co-HOH Courtney Keller The two of them nominated Caitlin Keller and Sara Was for eviction. During the POV competition HOH Ryan let his nominee Sara win. Sara removed herself on the Block and co-HOHs Ryan and Courntey nominated Nick Keller in an effort to backdoor the patriarch of the family.

Before the eviction ceremony, Caitlin made a huge move and used a secret power in the game to save herself and dad from the block. In shock, cousin Carly Burns and boyfriend Kevin Cook were placed on the block and scrambled to save themselves before the vote where Kevin was sent packing.

As the numbers got smaller, the female members of the Keller family took out the remaining male friends in the group one by one including Matt and Ryan. The final five consisted of 4 family members and 1 non-family member, Sara. Birthday girl, Caitlin, who won zero competitions on day 1 went into beast mode and won 3 HOHs and 3 POVs. Caitlin had a huge hand in getting her cousins Carly, sister Courtney and father Nick out of the game and chose to sit next to friend Sara in the final 2.

During the final Eviction Ceremony where Caitlin and Sara fought for why they should win the game, it was clear both had completely different strategies. On one hand Caitlin played the villain, making big moves, backstabbing alliance members when she felt their allegiance was no longer true, and dominating in the challenges. Sara, on the other hand, played more of a social game based on building friendships and being honest.

When it came time to vote, the Jury was split on who should win so much so that it was a tie 5-5 vote! Before the votes were cast, as the winner of the final HOH challenge Caitlin had the secret power to eliminate 1 vote in the case of a tie. She chose to eliminate Ryan Stanbery’s vote. When it was revealed who Ryan voted for, Caitlin eliminated a vote for herself and Sara became the winner of EVICTION by a 5-4 vote sending shock waves through the entire house.
