Present are the episode summaries for TV Stars Superstar Showdown.
Game of Joans
|I'd like to remind everyone that we're here to play the Game of Joans!|
The Host welcomed the twelve Superstars back to TV Stars for their second time around. Each competitor received his or her own special welcome message.
Returning from Hollywood, Louisa Rose Allen was the original challenge dominator of TV Stars. Akin to Kelly Wiglesworth of Survivor, will she be able to win the competition?
Returning from Broadway, Catbug was the iconic fourth placer of Broadway and wants to fight one more time for the million-dollar prize. Known for his quirkiness, will he be able to win on his second try?
Returning from Las Vegas, Fanatic is the only Photographer in TV Stars History thus far, and is best remembered for her relationship with Booka Bear. Will she be able to use her knowledge of the game to win?
Also from Las Vegas, Honey Lemon, the scientific quirky girl from Las Vegas, returns once again for the prize. Can she gain supporters and win the game this time?
Also from Las Vegas, Tyna Wesson, the only former winner in the roster and likable player from her original season, comes back for another chance at winning the game. She’s peppier and stronger, will she be able to fight to the end and win for a second time?
|More than the money, I want the title this time. Or should I say, again! ^_^ I don't mean the be greedy, but ohh man I can taste it.|
Returning from Hawaii, Joan Callamezzo, the excitable reporter, almost won the game until she was axed at the final three by fellow returnee Reed Kelly. Can she dominate challenges once more and do it all again to win the game?
|Hello, everyone, I'm Joan Callamezzo, and welcome to another special series of Pawnee Today!|
Also from Hawaii, Reed Kelly is the only successful Paparazzi in the History of the show. This Broadway actor returns to prove he has what it takes to beat everyone out once again. As one of the most villainous players in the history of the game, will he be able to get to the end and win?
Returning from Paris, Dan Foley was a fan favorite of his original season and won have won the game had he not been brutally eliminated by the villain of the season. Can he and his fat body make it to the end and win the game?
|I've worked for the post office for 22 years. And I am here to live my dream AGAIN! I have dreamt about being on TV Stars since Season 1, Episode 1. And, I plan on being remembered even more, one way or another, you will NEVER forget me.|
Returning from Tokyo, NanTheWitch is a clairvoyant witch that has what it takes to read the minds of her competitors. Can she use this to her advantage and win the game?
|Tokyo was an exciting change of scenery for me from New Orleans. I had to leave my fellow witches to win money, but it didn't really work. Now I'm back and stronger and have many more powers. I'm ready to win.|
Also from Tokyo, Rachel Reilly is loud, proud, and pregnant – and is known as one of the biggest competition threats and villains in the series. Rachel hopes to fight to the end again and win against the others. Can she pull it off?
Returning from Los Angeles, Tila Tequila is an anti-sematic princess and is very well known for her ability to win immunity to keep herself immune up until her eventual elimination in her original season. Can she be able to keep herself immune again and win the competition?
Also from Los Angeles, BrICE was a strong and fan-loved competitor. He competed hard, but can he do it again and make it to the end a second time?
The twelve Superstars gathered around the front of the House for the opening VIP competition.
Tila and Rachel immediately began to argue about which was the star of the show, and Rachel replied stating that she was the most noteworthy player in the competition.
|I’M TILA TEQUILA! AND I AM PART OF SOMETHING GREATER THAN MYSELF: THE NAZI PARTY!|
Honey and Tyna began talking to each other briefly before the challenge began. Honey commented that she wished more science would be involved in the season, and Tyna commented that Honey reminded her of her daughter.
|Honey and I were close in Las Vegas because she reminds me of my BEAUTIFUL daughter, Katherine Elise Collins.|
For the first VIP competition, the Host asked trivia questions about previous seasons of TV Stars.
Louisa Rose Allen
Tyna won and was declared the first VIP of the season. In celebration, Honey took a selfie with Tyna, and went about her business.
Before the Host opened the doors, he announced that one more Superstar would be playing with them. He welcomed Booka Bear to the game, and Fanatic immediately ran to hug him.
The Host allowed everyone entry to the House, and everyone flooded the halls to see the gorgeous décor of the home.
Nan and Rachel began to argue over their previous season. Before they entered, Rachel stated that she burned bridges in Tokyo that she needed to repair, but began her adventure in the game by continuing to burn her bridges. Nan stated that Rachel was being rude by calling Tyna an old hag after winning the challenge, and Rachel argued back to her stating that she did not deserve to be brought back.
To interrupt this, Tila called an immediate House meeting. As everyone gathered around her, she announced that she was indeed the Tila Tequila, and that if anyone in the House was a Jew, they needed to quit. She also stated that they all needed to vote out Rachel.
Catbug interrupted this by stating that the last one in the hot tub of the House had to make sandwiches for the other players.
Rachel and Tila continued to argue after everyone dispersed. Rachel yelled that Tila was a disgrace to the name “Tequila” and called her a floater and a backstabber. Tila replied, stating that she was obviously a Jew because of her nose shape and general ugliness.
Rachel asked if Tila even had friends in the game, and she replied stating that Dan was her friend. Dan ignored her, leaving the argument awkwardly open for further yelling.
Tila, instead of continuing, went on a rant about Jewish people. She commented that they were sneaky and that they steal gold but never share their money.
|Tempers are flaring already and it’s only day one!|
While Tila and Rachel continued their argument, Reed caught Joan talking about him…to the cameras in the House.
|I’d like to remind everyone that we’re here to play the Game of Joans. And in the Game of Joans, you either win, or you get screwed over by a loser from Broadway with no concept of living life!|
Reed overheard this and commented in a confessional that he needed to be calm and put on his “#BIGSMILES” to win the game.
America began voting for an MVP. Meanwhile, Tila and Dan talked about how they both hate Jewish people. Dan commented that he does not hate Jews and that he needed to slap sense into Rachel and Tila both.
After hearing this, Tila told Rachel that Dan was threatening them. Despite Rachel hating Tila, the two agreed that they would not be talked down to by a disgusting fat man.
Rachel was determined to be the MVP with 50% of the votes from America. Tila cheered for her and exclaimed, very loudly, “YAS QUEEN!”
Tila and Rachel began to strategize about the vote, and Tila announced to everyone that the two were best friends now. The two invited Honey to join them in an alliance that they called “The Hair Extensions”.
This newly formed friendship, however, created more problems for the two than they realized. Louisa formed an alliance with Reed and Honey called the “Foxes Alliance”, and Reed suggested taking out Tila because Rachel was immune.
Meanwhile, Nan protested Tila being in the game because she sensed that she was a child molester. This did not truly surprise anyone, but Nan was heavily against her being in the game.
Nan went to Dan and talked about voting her out, and Dan agreed. In another alliance, the “TV Stars Fanclub”, Dan pushed the message that people were voting for Tila to the other members (Fanatic, and Louisa).
At the backstage area for the cancellation, Honey commented that the first elimination of the game felt tense.
|I can feel the tension in the air, and tension isn’t in Oxygen’s compound or anything!|
As Rachel and Tila arrived, Rachel shouted out that everyone was voting out Dan, and if anyone was trying to save him, they needed to grab a life vest.
The others had different approaches to the elimination.
|I hope I'm not the first one gone tonight. I'm playing this game in honor of my deceased boyfriend, Luke. His mother smothered him with a pillow, so I killed her. He's in heaven, and I hope that he'll enjoy me winning this game for him.|
Dan and Rachel argued once more about Dan not having friends. Louisa stood and announced that she was Dan’s friend, and Rachel called Dan disgusting after having her argument disproved by Louisa.
The Host announced that it was officially time to vote. After all were tallied, the Host arrived back with renewal slips in his hands. Who would be the first to go? Dan, the loud fat man, Tila, the Nazi, or someone else?
One by one the renewal slips were handed out until two remained.
|Backstage Elimination #1|
Tila (5 Votes)
Louisa, Dan, Reed, Fanatic, Nan
Dan (4 Votes)
Catbug, Rachel, Honey, Tila
Fanatic (2 Votes)
Tila was the first Superstar cancelled from the competition, making her the very first returning player in the series to be cancelled.
In response to this, Joan shouted:
|What the [expletive deleted]???|
The Producers of This Show Are a Bunch of Fatists!
The episode opened with Louisa questioning where the season was taking place. Louisa’s confusion, which stemmed from the previous week, was caused by her lack of watching the show past her first season. Many competitors jokingly referred to her as Louisa Wiglesworth, a reference to Kelly Wiglesworth from Survivor who was fairly clueless in her second season.
Reed stated to Louisa that they were in Miami, a fabulous place. However, he continued to say that it was not as fabulous as Broadway. Louisa asked once again where it was, because she is from the United Kingdom and had no idea where she was.
Joan interrupted their conversation with her microphone, and reported to her reporters outside of the game that she was interviewing someone from a country that was not the United States.
|Tell me, Louisa, about your foreign homeland.|
In response, Louisa talked about how beautiful the United Kingdom is.
|Well, it’s just great! Everyone talks like me there, you hear my accent? Everyone’s like that. Plus, we have the BEST pubs. Burgers and fast food, mm mm mm! And everyone there is super nice, like me!|
Joan cut away from her talking about her home to get more screen time for herself. She reported further about Louisa.
|Now that we’ve confirmed the true fact that everyone from London DESPISES America, you non-angloconflictors out there can take a hike because I was right all along!|
Dan talked in a confessional about himself and his game.
As he exited, he noticed Nan by a Oujia board, attempting to contact spirits on advice in the game. As she did this, Rachel antagonized her by telling her that she would not get any advice from the spirits because she was not a nice person.
Reed told Rachel to stop, because being in the House meant you had to play dirty. Simply being in the House, he believed, was enough to damage one’s game. “That’s the whole point of playing it.”
The VIP competition began, and everyone felt the tension rise as the Fame Task was announced.
Joan was the victor and won VIP status for the week. Dan became frustrated that he was unable to win a challenge, and exclaimed that the challenge was biased.
| WHAT??????? This challenge was CLEARLY biased against ME!!!!!!!!!!|
The producers of this show are a bunch of FATISTS!!!!
America then proceeded to vote for an MVP for the week. Louisa was crowned the victor with 50% of the votes and was handed two boxes to hand out in the first and only MVP bait of the competition.
Louisa thought about it, and chose to give a box to Dan and Honey for being her allies.
With Dan immune for the round and Honey ineligible to vote, the final moments of the week began.
Rachel announced to the House that she was voting for Nan.
| THIS MAY BE A SURPRISE TO SOME OF YOU FLOATERS, BUT WE’RE PLAYING A GAME. NAN THE WITCH HAS GOT TO GO.|
NO WITCHCRAFT IN THE BIG BROTHER HOUSE!
Nan argued back to Rachel, telling her to shut up.
|SHUT UP, RACHEL! YOU GOT YOUR WHOLE GAME RIGGED FOR YOU IN BIG BROTHER AND TV STARS!|
Rachel turned the entire House against Nan by calling her out on lying over something nonexistent. The arguing created a target on Rachel as well, as Reed left a confessional about Rachel, stating that she needed to stay despite being stupid.
At cancellation, Rachel called out Nan and asked her to name something she did in Tokyo. Nan replied, stating that she gave a penalty vote to Justin, the first boot of the season, which caused him to be eliminated.
Rachel replied by telling Nan she was a floater that would not win the game. With that, the votes were cast, and the Host returned with renewal slips. Who would be eliminated? Rachel, the vicious strategic villainess, or Nan, the witch?
|Backstage Elimination #2|
Nan (8 Votes)
Louisa, Catbug, Dan, Rachel, BrICE, Reed, Tyna, Fanatic
Rachel (1 Vote)
Nan was eliminated unanimously, with only her vote going to Rachel.
In The Spirit of the Olympics, Let the Games Begin!
The episode opened with Joan discussing her life as a journalist. She commented that Journalism is a game of knives and murder, and Honey replied to her, stating that she had to “risk it to get the biscuit”.
Joan took this as an insult, and asked if she was calling her fat. She asked if she was implying that she ate more biscuits than usual or if she were trying to tell the fans she needed more biscuits in her body.
Joan turned to the cameras and stated that she had to find out more on this problem. She leaned in to Honey with her microphone and asked her what her real thoughts were about herself.
|I think you’re fabulous, Joan!|
Louisa interrupted them to ask what the name of the season was, and Joan explained that it was called “Supermoon Saga”. Obviously, this was incorrect, but Louisa believed it.
Honey then proceeded to ask Joan a question. Joan leaned the microphone in, and Honey asked her how she became the host of Pawnee Today. Joan made a side comment to the producers of her show to get the footage for the highlight reel before she retired.
Joan started talking about a man she dated prior to the show, but she was informed in her earpiece that she could not talk about breaking up marriages to get her to where she was in life.
Meanwhile, before the VIP competition began, Tyna met in a confessional to discuss her game.
|I feel like an octopus. We were eight legs strong and now we are down one leg!|
The VIP competition then began for the week. Joan, in an attempt to spectate the competition, tried to hire a helicopter from her news studio, but because their budget was only twelve dollars and a stolen shopping cart from Costco, she could not spectate properly.
Tyna won the VIP competition, making her immune for the week.
|These people might underestimate me because I’m older, but they have NO idea what they’re in for!!!! ^_^|
It was at this time that Honey formed an alliance with the returnees from Las Vegas (Herself, Fanatic and Tyna). The three agreed to stick with each other, but secretly, in a confessional, Honey revealed that she could not stick with them for long.
|I love Tyna, I really do…but this is my second chance! She’s already won, so she can move over and give a shot to those who haven’t. Our bond is as tight as H2O, but sometimes you just need to get out of your element. This is my time.|
Joan met with Fanatic and interviewed her about her “controversial” opinion over Joan in the competition. When asked what her true opinion was of Joan, Fanatic revealed:
|I can assure you, not a lot of people enjoy watching an old, drunk hag unless it’s to get some nice cheap laughs at how cringeworthy she is.|
After this ensued, the MVP vote began. By a plurality vote, Catbug was deemed the winner of the MVP for the week and was immune from elimination.
Catbug cheered and exclaimed happily that he loved everyone.
During this, Booka Bear met with Fanatic, and Fanatic told him that she wanted to get married the next day. Booka seemed confused about the situation, and Fanatic responded, stating that he made her the happiest girl in the world even though he was just a bear of few words.
|I hope two of your words tomorrow is “I do”.|
The fear of elimination set in for everyone. Rachel announced, yet again, her vote in front of the House. She screamed that she was voting out Joan because Tyna was a major threat in the game that needed to be weakened.
|LISTEN UP! TYNA IS A LIAR! AND A CHEAT! I AM VOTING FOR JOAN!|
J-O-A-N! AND I SUGGEST YOU ALL DO THE SAME AND STOP LISTENING TO TYNA, THE DEVILISH OLD HAG!
Reed told Joan that she was at the bottom of the game, indeed. He told her that he would vote with her if she stopped trying to target the men of the game, and Joan responded to both stating that she was the biggest star out of all of them.
|Well, Rachel, it appears that you’re not the biggest fan of me, Joan Callamezzo, the host of Pawnee Today and intergalactic superstar across the multiplanetary media spectrum. Care to elaborate?|
While Joan and Rachel argued, Reed called upon everyone to vote out Joan for being malicious and for having a fake smile.
|I’ve played with you once, and that experience was one that I really wish I could erase from my memory.|
I absolutely, positively, cannot stand you.
Joan changed her focus to Reed and continued to argue with him. All the while, the alliances were meeting in private to discuss the vote. It was clear that Joan was the one to be sent home, but Honey had different plans.
In an attempt to take out one of her Las Vegas competitors, Honey targeted Fanatic. With Louisa from the Foxes Alliance, she and Honey agreed to vote against Fanatic.
At elimination, the Host came in with the renewal slips and passed them out to all except for two. Would Joan be sent home after the major target was created on her back, or would Fanatic get the boot?
|Backstage Elimination #3.1|
Joan (4 Votes)
Rachel, Honey, Reed, Fanatic
Fanatic (4 Votes)
Louisa, Joan, Catbug, BrICE
BrICE (1 Vote)
The vote tied, with one vote against BrICE causing the tie. Dan was clueless about what to do in the game, and thus he threw his vote.
Tyna then teased Rachel and Reed about trying to vote out her main ally, Joan.
In the re-vote, Joan begged Dan to stay with her. Meanwhile, Fanatic talked about her status in the game.
Rachel protested keeping Joan in the game once more by reiterating that Joan and Tyna were a tight pair of friends.
Honey asked Dan to stick with her and take out Fanatic, and with many people coming at him with requests, he was forced to make a split-second decision. He chose to vote with Honey.
|Backstage Elimination #3.2|
Fanatic (4 Votes)
Louisa, Catbug, Honey, Dan
Joan (3 Votes)
Rachel, Reed, BrICE
Fanatic was blindsided in the revote, leaving Joan in the game to further antagonize Reed and Rachel.
Tyna then exclaimed that Reed was a liar, and that he had been one to flip against her to try and take out Joan.
|In the spirit of the Olympics, let the games begin!|
Before she left, a Priest entered the House and met with Booka and Fanatic. Fanatic declared that she wanted to marry the bear, and the Priest allowed them to state their vows.
|Booka, will you be the bear that wishes to surgically sew themselves into me metaphorically so we can metaphorically always be at each other’s metaphorical side?|
Booka Bear responded positively, and the Priest made them husband and wife.
Slit Throats and Take People Out
The episode opened with Tyna talking to Dan about her daughter. She stated that she would be happy if Dan would take a liking to her daughter, Katie.
Meanwhile, Reed expressed disgust after Fanatic’s elimination about his allies.
|I am so pissed off. Not only was I in a good place, now I’m bumped down to the bottom. I needed Fanatic and BrICE to be reasonable, not stupid. And NOW Dan has minimal common sense also.|
The Host announced that everyone had made it to the jury stage of the competition, and the Superstars rejoiced. Louisa gave the group a hug, and in a confessional, Catbug gave his thoughts on the jury stage of the game.
|I feel much better after yesterday. Maybe now they’re not mad anymore :3|
The Host announced that this round of the competition, during week four, would include a new twist to the game. He revealed that an auction would take place, producing various items from previous seasons of the show.
After the Host left the area, the players pondered what the twist would be. Joan met with Rachel and asked her about elaborating on her situation back home. Rachel responded, stating that she was going to keep her personal life to herself, but that she had returned to Big Brother, and that she was trapped on the show with an “annoying reporter”, referring to Joan.
Rachel referenced her current pregnancy, and stated that she wanted to name the property after her child. However, the property title was revealed to be “El Hombre Gordo’s House”, making Dan the winner of that challenge.
The twist was revealed to change the VIP competition for the week. The twist of this new VIP competition was that various letter tiles would be placed in the auction for purchase. The first person to reach three tiles would win VIP status for the week.
Each competitor was tasked with answering trivia questions correctly. With each correct question, competitors would score one-hundred dollars to spend on the auction.
After the questions were asked, Catbug found himself eliminated immediately after getting no questions correct. Meanwhile, Rachel scored five-hundred dollars; Tyna, Reed, Louisa, and Joan scored four-hundred; Honey and BrICE scored three-hundred; Dan scored two-hundred.
After the auction ended, Tyna discovered clearly that purchasing the safe was a game-ending move. With Honey distributing extra votes to Catbug and Dan, Tyna knew Honey was not going to work with her.
Honey’s decision quickly angered Rachel. Rachel stated that she helped Honey in the game, and that Joan was trying to convince her to vote for her that night. Joan replied to her, stating that Honey had nothing to prove to her after she revealed that she believed Honey was a “complete loser”.
After the auction concluded, Louisa and Rachel tied in letter tile wins. After a tiebreaker game, Rachel was declared the VIP of the week. Dan was also later declared the MVP of the week, winning 57% of the votes.
As of the moment of Rachel winning, music sounded in the House. BrICE failed to dance, and thus was given a penalty vote at elimination. BrICE remained unaware of his penalty vote gains, despite them being broadcast to the entire House.
Alliances began to talk about who to vote out, and music sounded once more, to which BrICE did not dance and received a second penalty vote. This began to point alliances to him to vote out because of his penalties, but this was not the idea of everyone in the House.
Many competitors left puzzled confessionals about the vote, unsure of if they should take out players with advantages or the original target of the House, Tyna.
|I am feeling the ABSOLUTE lowest I have ever felt! People do NOT trust me and I wasted all my money on the auction!|
|At this point, I have no idea who to trust.|
|This vote is worse than the time I interviewed Bobby Newport’s fourth cousin, three times removed on his sex scandal with my ex-husband’s former boss.|
It’s just stressful and awkward… but [expletive deleted]ing killer TV!
|Do I honestly trust anyone? No. That’s why I need to slit throats and take people out. I’m not gonna apologize for making a move.|
Honey pushed for Tyna to be eliminated, along with Reed, who had an alliance with Tyna previously. Reed informed Tyna that he knew she had saved him in a previous round, but that he couldn’t do the same.
|Backstage Elimination #4.1|
Tyna (5 Votes)
Catbug, Dan, BrICE, Honey, Reed
BrICE (5 Votes)
Louisa, Joan, Tyna, Penalty, Penalty
With a smug grin on his face, he voted her out at elimination. However, Tyna was not eliminated, as two penalty votes against BrICE caused a tie in the votes. However, they did not carry over into the next elimination.
Tyna pleaded for the others to save her and keep her in the game, but they did not listen.
|Backstage Elimination #4.2|
Tyna (5 Votes)
Joan, Catbug, Dan, Honey, Reed
BrICE (1 Votes)
Tyna gracefully exited the game, stating that she tried her best. She sat down for her exit interview.
Joan began the episode by stating that she knew Tyna was going to go home, despite the tie vote happening. She stated that the media always knows more than one does.
|I think I’m alone in this game…|
I just…*chokes up*
Louisa cried about Tyna’s elimination and being alone in the game. She recognized that she was at the bottom of her alliance. She mourned the loss of her ally, and looked to Reed and Honey to ask if everything that they had talked to her about was a lie.
Dan called Reed a liar after overhearing this, and Reed contested being called a liar and instead stated that he did not lie to Louisa.
In contrast to Louisa's sadness, Reed met with his alliance member, Rachel, and stated that he was excited that Tyna was gone. "I'm really feeling my #HUGESMILES now that she's gone!"
At the next VIP competition site, the Host explained the challenge and it began.
With the strength of Tyna’s positive vibes from outside of the game, Louisa succeeded in winning VIP status for the week.
|I got this when I really needed it…I’m so proud of myself!|
Despite Louisa’s success, Joan moped about her game being over. She stated that her show and career was over after not winning the challenge.
However, a spark of hope came to her as the MVP vote began. She pleaded to America to grant her MVP status, and she won with an overwhelming 71% of the votes. This sent a message to the majority alliance comprised of everyone else in the House that something needed to change to gain the favor of America.
|We’re back in this. When you play the Game of Joans, you either win, or you get exposed, and I’m not about to get exposed.|
Game on, [expletive deleted]s.
Reed declared that the vote would be dazzling this week.
|Honestly, this choice has been by far the easiest. Even easier than voting against Joan.|
Reed commented in his confessional about how the bottom two of the game, Joan and Louisa, had succeeded in securing themselves immunity for the round.
Because of her purchase of the RSVP in the auction, Rachel was an immediate target in the elimination. However, Honey, in her alliance with BrICE, Dan, and Catbug, had a misconception about the RSVP. Honey believed that it worked like a Hidden Immunity Idol from Survivor, and decided to split the votes for the night between Reed and Rachel.
Using their double votes, Dan decided he would vote for Rachel, and Catbug decided he would vote for Reed. The plan that night, however, was to take Rachel out of the game if she did not use her RSVP.
Meanwhile, other alliances decided to try and take Dan out of the game. Reed suggested to Rachel that he would use his double vote to take him out, and Rachel attempted to sway others into voting with her.
Which side would reign supreme?
At elimination, Rachel did not decide to use her RSVP, keeping the misconception intact for the night.
|Backstage Elimination #5|
Reed (5 Votes)
Joan, Catbug, Catbug, BrICE, Honey
Dan (3 Votes)
Rachel, Reed, Reed
Rachel (2 Votes)
In a shocking blindside, Reed found himself taken out of the game by Catbug’s double vote, Joan’s dislike for him, and BrICE and Honey believing that the RSVP would serve as an idol.
|Well this is unfortunate :3|
In the end, Reed exited the game as the second juror and sat down for his exit interview.
She’s Nothing But a Rat in a House Full of Snakes
|This morning is okay, I guess. :(|
How’s everyone’s hearts feeling? Mine hurts.
Louisa opened the episode by expressing discontent about the eliminations of Tyna and Reed. Catbug openly stated that he did not want to make anyone mad, and that he apologized for voting out her friends.
Joan began speaking to her cameras, “Good evening, and welcome to Pawnee Today!”, but Louisa interrupted, stating that it was actually morning.
|Wow! It’s like the sky changed colors! When does THAT ever happen?|
Joan looked to Honey for her thoughts on the game, and Honey talked about how it was almost Christmas time.
|I’m like…so ready for Christmas! Lighting up the fire…oh, such a fun thing to do.|
Hot chocolate, all the sciency yet fun things!
Louisa commented, to Honey, that for Christmas, she could purchase her upcoming album called “All I Need”.
Attention turned to Rachel and Dan for a major outburst. Dan left a confessional about Rachel, stating that he was close to getting rid of Rachel.
Rachel exploded on everyone in the House, screaming that she was tired of Dan being sexist, Joan being a mess, Honey being a liar who has no integrity and overplays, and even the Host who she believed was nepotistic.
Louisa tried to calm Rachel down and stated that she needed love in her life, but Rachel replied with more screaming, stating that she was acting too high and mighty for her own good.
Amidst the arguing, the VIP challenge was announced, and everyone gathered for it.
During the challenge, those that did not pass on (Honey, Louisa, Rachel, and Joan) sat around, eating cookies prepared by Honey. Louisa commented that she missed eating sweet things so much because she was watching her figure, and Joan commented that the cameras add pounds to her figure.
Louisa instantly noticed she was gaining weight, and left a confessional about it.
|--And then! And then she said that Dan didn’t love me before. What? He’ll only love me NOW? *Cries about weight gain*|
BrICE ultimately won the competition. The MVP vote began immediately, and Rachel, despite her screaming, was awarded MVP for the week with 66% of the votes.
Just before elimination began, Joan and Rachel sat together and made a final-two pact. Joan argued that she wanted Rachel in the end with her, and apologized for their previous indiscretions. Joan and Louisa, a previous duo that was at the bottom of the game, saw a ray of hope as the two aligned with Rachel.
Meanwhile, Dan, Catbug, and Honey met together and discussed voting out Joan for being a major threat. The vote was obvious for them, and they unanimously agreed to take her out. Honey once again turned on her friend, Joan, in an attempt to blindside her.
At elimination, Rachel surprised everyone by pulling out her RSVP. She announced that she was going to play it on Joan to keep her immune from elimination that night, which put a major hole in Honey’s plan. She changed their target to Louisa.
|So I was gone for a while, but now I’m back!|
In my past Big Brother seasons, I’ve kept some pretty deep enemies. But not this time!
I’d like to give my RSVP pass to Joan~
This bold move in keeping herself vulnerable instead of saving herself proved surprising, given her past history of being selfish in TV Stars Tokyo. Rachel announced that she was voting out Honey that night.
Votes were cast, and the Host returned to pass out the renewal slips.
|Backstage Elimination #6.1|
Louisa (3 Votes)
Catbug, Dan, Honey
Honey (3 Votes)
Louisa, Joan, Rachel
Once again this season, the votes tied with three votes against Honey and Louisa. Rachel turned to Dan and explained that he needed to come to her side to vote out Honey.
|Are you going to listen to the two faced [expletive deleted], who’s been playing everyone this ENTIRE TIME? She’s nothing but a rat in a house full of snakes.|
It’s time for us to do what snakes do: eat the filthy rat for lunch!
Louisa declared war on Honey, stating that she was finished with her.
|We’re done for good. Not friends, not ALLIANCE mates, nothing. I hope you go.|
Louisa and Rachel pulled for Dan to work with them, and he re-cast his vote. Would he switch?
|Backstage Elimination #6.2|
Louisa (2 Votes)
Honey (2 Votes)
For the third time in the series, the vote deadlocked. This surprised Joan, and she reported that the vote had tied for a second time to her cameras.
Louisa and Honey were called to the Host’s stand, and were ordered to pick a straw from a selection to determine who would be eliminated.
|Backstage Elimination #6.3|
In a shocking deadlock straw pull, Honey found herself to be the third victim of straws, offsetting the balance of the alliances in the game in the favor of Joan, Rachel, and Louisa.
Honey exited the game as the third juror, and sat down for an exit interview.
This Game Has Been a Rollercoaster
The second-to-last episode kicked off with the announcement of the TV Stars Family Visit competition. The Host announced that the six remaining competitors, including the outgoing VIP, BrICE, would receive a chance at VIP at an even playing field with their loved ones.
For Louisa, MarinaDiamandis showed up for her and gave her a hug. Louisa welcomed her to the House, and Marina stated that she was excited to be there.
For Rachel, AbiMariaGomes appeared for her in the challenge. Rachel welcomed her friend to the game, and Abi was excited to play.
For Joan, her companion, Eric, joined the game for her, and Joan immediately revealed that she detested him. He revealed that he did not like her, either, after she called him on live television while sitting on a running washing machine.
For Dan, his sister, Danielle, joined the game, and began to, very loudly, scream that she was excited to be there.
For BrICE, professional wrestler JohnCena joined him for some reason. He did not acknowledge that he was a loved one of BrICE.
For Catbug, his companion, Puppycat, joined him, and the two talked about the game thus far.
The Host then explained the competition and the reward for winning. The person that won with their loved one would receive VIP status and the ability to vote while immune through their loved one.
The competition then began. It was a trivia challenge, with the competitors playing to four points to win.
During the competition, Joan and Eric bickered plenty about the game while still trying to win to keep their egos intact.
Rachel cheered for Abi, telling her that she was fierce and had the win in the bag. Meanwhile, John, Danielle, and Puppycat barely competed in the challenge and fell in last place very quickly, with John being the only one able to score.
At the end of the competition, Joan and Eric secured VIP status. Because of this win, Joan complimented Eric, and stated that she was open to dating again.
Dan was then declared the MVP of the week with 57% of the votes from America.
In the silence of the aftermath of Dan’s crowning, Louisa treated everyone to a song from her album, called “Better Love”. After she concluded her song, Joan made a comment that the game was going to be intense at this elimination.
|When you play the Game of Joans, you either win…or lose. This will be the most dramatic elimination yet!|
Still aligned with Rachel, Joan was relieved to be able to vote at the elimination in order to save herself and her allies, Rachel and Louisa. Had it been any other round, she would have been left unable to vote.
But things were not simple. Rachel, Joan, and Louisa still had to take out their new target: BrICE.
BrICE, Dan, and Catbug, still aligned and refusing to flip, worked against Louisa once more because they believed her to be a strategic and social threat to win the game.
In a confessional, Louisa talked about the game thus far.
|I feel like my position in this game has improved dramatically…this game has been a rollercoaster, and I’m at the top of a hill.|
At elimination, the two sides of the game sent in their votes.

The vote tied, and Dan and Catbug showed no signs of flipping against the others. The Host gave them a moment to talk, and then they cast their re-votes.
|Backstage Elimination #7.2|
Louisa (2 Votes)
BrICE (2 Votes)
Once again, for the second time in a row, the vote deadlocked. Louisa, for the second time, approached the straw stand with BrICE, and the two decided straws to learn their fate in the game.
|Backstage Elimination #7.3|
Louisa once again survived, and BrICE was eliminated as the next jury member. On his way out, he addressed the final five.
|Catbug you were really nice to me, let’s hang out after the show.|
BrICE then exited the game, and left an interesting post-game interview.
I've been OUTWITTED, OUTPLAYED, and OUTLASTED!
The finale of the season kicked off with the announcement that the final stretch was beginning. Louisa, Catbug, Joan, Dan, and Rachel had made it to the end of the season.
|It’s my second time in the finale. This time, I’m winning!|
|It feels GREAT to make it to the finale again. But this time, I’m gonna WIN!|
Catbug, the likable and adorable competitor, Dan, the loud fat man, Joan, the trainwreck reporter, Louisa, the underdog, and Rachel, the over the top villainess, remained in the competition. Which of them would reign superior?
In the first VIP competition, Joan forgot that she could not compete, and accused the Host of rigging the game when he announced that she was not able to play. Dan screamed out that rigging was the most disgusting thing.
Louisa was crowned the winner of the VIP competition, making her immune into the final four.
With 75% of America’s votes, Joan was declared the MVP of the week – the final in the game. For the duo, this was an excellent week, but for Rachel, the week became her worst nightmare. Because Louisa won VIP, she was left unable to vote, leaving Rachel and Joan to try and sway Dan and Catbug to their side.
Would this work, or would the vote deadlock for the third time in a row?
|Backstage Elimination #8.1|
Rachel (2 Votes)
Dan (2 Votes)
The vote tied between Dan and Rachel. However, Rachel discovered that Catbug had indeed flipped to work with her, but that Joan had flipped against her to take her out of the game.
|Backstage Elimination #8.2|
Rachel (1 Vote)
Dan (1 Vote)
The vote deadlocked for the third time in a row this season. Rachel and Dan were forced to draw straws, and the two approached the stand.
|Backstage Elimination #8.3|
Rachel was eliminated from the game, and she screamed out of rage and stormed out of the house.
After she stormed out, Joan stated that the game was scandalous.
In the next week, Dan stated that the next challenge was do or die for him.
|I /HAVE/ to win the challenge.|
At the next VIP competition, the final four competed in the challenge, with Louisa being able to compete.
Joan won the VIP competition, leaving Louisa without immunity. However, because Catbug had previously sided with Joan and Louisa, he sided to save Louisa and vote out Dan.
|Backstage Elimination #9|
Dan (2 Votes)
Louisa (1 Vote)
Dan screamed in agony after having his show cancelled for a second time.
|I’VE BEEN OUTWITTED, OUTPLAYED, AND OUTLASTED BY YOU! But I haven’t been OUTCLASSED by you, you VICIOUS LYING DISGUSTING WHORES!|
Louisa and Catbug made a pact to go to the final two together and take out Joan. However, Louisa also had a secure bond with Joan in the game. She seemed to be guaranteed the final two no matter what.
Catbug asked Louisa if she was any good at trivia for the final competition, and Louisa stated that she would try her best.
|3rd Place - 0 Points|
|2nd Place - 2 Points|
|1st Place - 5 Points|
Joan defeated both in the final VIP competition, and Louisa hugged her to congratulate her on her win. Joan stated that she knew her decision for the vote.
|I already know my decision! You can read all about my thought process in my new book.|
Joan was prepared to vote and did not want to hear anyone’s arguments as to why they should stay in the game.
|Backstage Elimination #10|
Catbug (1 Vote)
Joan eliminated Catbug in third place, and Catbug hugged Louisa, telling her that he had fun playing with her.
|Nice playing with you! :3 :3 <3 <3|
Louisa and Joan were the final two of the competition. Louisa and Joan did little to plead their case to the jury, because the decision was very clear. Based on their gameplay efforts and social game, the jury knew exactly what they were going to do.
|I’ve spent so much time, reflecting, on last time, and what I did wrong…|
The jury cast their votes.
Louisa Rose Allen (4 Votes)
Joan Callamezzo (3 Votes)
Louisa was declared the victor of TV Stars Superstar Showdown and the eighth overall winner of the series.
