Ugh God. I want them to..
I want to say no, because hope kind of crushes my dreams. Whenever I say to myself “this could happen” I start to get really emotional when I realize it won’t happen.
The only reason I thought they would bring back a second juror is because they HAVE to if they want to do a second double eviction. I haven’t done the math in my head with the weeks and stuff but my friend who’s a super fan and has watched every season told me he worked it out and the only way they could do another double evict is if they bring back another juror.
If they were to rig it for Zach, the best way they could do it is to ask for America’s vote on who to send back in and out of the three jury members right now, Zach would absolutely win that. Unless they do it after Donny is evicted this week, then he might have some serious competition.
However, I really don’t think they’re going to do it. Part of me does because this is supposed to be “the most twisted summer ever” but the double HoH twist has been the only one, and the juror buy back was pretty much the same thing so it’s not interesting. So why wouldn’t they add a second juror going along with the double theme? But they haven’t mentioned anything about another twist and we knew about the first jury buy back for a long time so why wouldn’t they talk about a second jury buy back ahead of time? There’s not much time left to hint at that sort of thing.
Also, I think CBS is tired of getting accused of rigging things. They were accused of rigging the competitions to be mental so Donny could win them (which is ridiculous because the veto he won on double eviction night was insanely physical), they were accused of rigging the detonators last minute flip to save Zach the week he was supposed to go against Jocasta and they were accused of rigging the Battle of the Block that Frankie won by himself. So I think if Zach was brought back into the house via a competition, it would be another excuse for people to say it was rigged.
I think the best thing that we can hope for is that they bring him back to host a competition, or as a part of a pandora’s box or some kind of special twist that has him back in the house but not playing for the money (just like Rachel in season 12 coming back for a day).
And of course let’s all hold out hope for Zach coming back for All Stars 2. I genuinely believe he has a great shot at being brought back just because he was such a fan favorite. And hopefully he will pull a Rachel and win!
Also another thing I want to add to this, is that we can always hope he’ll come back and do interviews for the show and stuff like that. You don’t have to win BB to do that. Jeff Schroeder played twice and didn’t win and he is still very popular and works for CBS. He does the live interviews with the evictees every week. Even Evel Dick did backyard interviews after BB11 ended. Zach has a great personality for that.
