I keep seeing quite a few people say this and I’m just not seeing it. I mean comp wise he definitely has her beat, but his social and strategy game is below Taylor’s.
COMP GAME: Monte beats Taylor
Monte won 3 more comps than Taylor, but Monte was far from the comp beast some are trying to make him out to be. He’s a distant second in the comp wins category. With the exception of Michael, everyone was mediocre at comps. Anyone besides Michael using comp wins as a part of their resume just seems like low hanging fruit.
STRATEGY GAME: Taylor beats Monte
Monte’s strategic game was subpar. He was pretty much coasting and didn’t start playing the game until after Dyre fest. He was relying on the LO alliance to play the game for him. If Michael and Brittany didn’t reveal Kyle’s all white alliance, Monte would have went home as a replacement nom.
In my opinion Monte never had a good read on the game. Turner and him were going to form a F3 with Michael to take out the remaining 3 women because of the Girl’s Girl alliance. It wasn’t until Taylor reassured him she was loyal to him and that Michael needed to go next that Michael became his target. It’s obvious Monte didn’t understand which players he needed to bring to the end. The fact that he brought Turner and Taylor to F3 over Brittany and Alyssa shows his strategic game just wasn’t there. He also let Brittany and Taylor convince him that he would lose to Turner in F2, which is why he brought Taylor.
Taylor knew who she would win against in the finale, which is why she wanted to bring Alyssa and Brittany to the end. Taylor was still willing to keep Brittany, even after knowing Brittany tried to flip the vote on her because she knew for certain she would win Brittany in F2. Taylor also knew targets she needed to get out to guarantee she got to the finale and have a shot at winning. Michael would have brought Taylor to F3, but she knew he needed to go for there to be even a chance for her to win. She knew to target Turner after Michael was evicted because he was the only person not willing to bring her to F3. Her and Brittany tried to convince Monte to put Turner on the block rather than evict Alyssa.
SOCIAL GAME: Taylor beats Monte
Monte’s social game just wasn’t there. He only made connections with his Pound alliance and Taylor. Even with his Pound alliance members his connections weren’t that strong with them. Joseph was closer to Taylor. Kyle closer to Alyssa, Michael, Brittany, and Turner. Turner closer to Alyssa and Kyle.
Whereas, Taylor made an effort to connect with everyone in the jury phase to the point anyone going to jury had nothing but positive things to say about her with the exception of Terrance.
So far there's been 3 judges from RuPaul's Drag Race on Celebrity BB. I loved Carson Kressley and Ross Matthews. Hated Todrick. I'd honestly love to see Michelle Visage on the next season. Anyone else?!
I don't think she'd win but I think she'd bring a lot of comedy like Carson and Ross.
Also, just kinda funny to mention, ever since Big Brother, Todrick is the only one of the 3 judges to play that hasn't been back as a guest judge since. 👀
