The September 22 episode featured more judges joining the house. The last one was Alyssa Snider and they watched her face the block with Taylor Hale. It was a split vote and Monte Taylor had to break the tie.
“I knew Monte wouldn’t be keeping me in a million years,” Alyssa told them. “Taylor slept in Monte’s HOH bed for about three days, and anyway, that’s what -.”
She was interrupted by everyone who pointed out Joseph’s reaction. “Say that again,” Terrance asked Higgins. “Say that again. What you saw?”
“I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know,” she claimed while covering her face with her hands. Everyone shouted back that she knew.
“I mean, that’s, I guess it’s her business or I don’t know,” Joseph said in a separate interview while looking at the floor. Joseph and Taylor previously had a fake showmance in the game and then ended it.

Fans joked about the dramatic moment on Reddit. But they also addressed how the scenes were put together.
“I just watched the whole clip and the way they put it together was weird. Alyssa definitely said more than JUST that,” wrote one fan.
“Yeah, and of course social media is pulling Alyssa for being a ‘bitch’ based on this edit like she just carelessly dropped it,” added another viewer.
“Joseph never seemed to me like he had anything serious for Taylor. I think that’s just the editing,” one person claimed.
Fans have also been talking about the editing in a separate Reddit thread. “The jury room processing of the Joseph bit was patchy. His DRs were always a bit distant and it was cut really short. Also, he didn’t seem that angry at the moment, it seemed more like Indy/Terrance were trying to bust his balls a bit. It seemed like the production was trying to make more of it than it was,” claimed one fan.
“He may have chosen not to comment. He may be very embarrassed. I wouldn’t comment on being him,” another person replied.
Joseph previously focused on Taylor’s jury play
Joseph previously said he would be cheering on the houseguests at Big Bro Chella. That makes sense since he was betrayed by Kyle Capener and Matt “Turner” Turner at Dyre Fest.
Every time Joseph looked back new weeks and Taylor was put on the block, he asked why. So it looks like the lawyer is paying close attention to her movements and who’s targeting her.
Fans will have to wait for the jury roundtable to see if the showmance messages affect the votes. But the most recent jury segment showed several judges respect Monte’s game.
