Big Brother 16: Nominations, Battle of the Block Show Blog Party - June 29
Okay, let's see how this Battle of the Block goes down! As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As always, the real party is in the comments area. Come watch the show with us!
Remember -- entry for the blog pool closes tonight at midnight, EDT. To sign up, head to this post. Any entry requests on other posts might be missed. Our plan for the first hamster to be gone before the pool has gone a bit kerflooey with the twists this season. But, at least we know most of the hamsters a bit. It's not like one going out on the first night we see the show.
Hamster watchers ready?
Ah, a new show opening reminiscent of So You Think You Can Dance, BB style, of course.
The HoH room reveal is for both Caleb and Frankie. It's actually two rooms, the main one has a bird's nest kind of bed. Nicole and Christine click due to similarities. Frankie offers to work with Caleb. The "boys" -- Devin, Frankie, Caleb and Derrick decide on an alliance, called The Bomb Squad (thanks to Caleb). Cody and Zach are also invited. Cody and Derrick have some doubts but aren't telling the others, just telling us.
Nominations Today is on the screen.
Frankie wants to put up the first two who fell in the HoH. Caleb wants to put up Hayden, he thinks putting a guy and a girl up would conceal the existence of the Bomb Squad.
They draw to see which HoH decides on noms first. Caleb went first. Frankie doesn't want blood on his hands.
Only two keys to a box, Caleb announces Donny and PauPau, first to fall off in first HoH comp. Frankie nominated Victoria and Brittany. Difficult decision, first two who fell in second HoH comp.
Caleb is crying because others cried. Aw. Frankie is trying to convince Victoria that Caleb chose first and took the ones he wanted to nominate.
Devin thinks the Bomb Squad needs a few girls and tells, recruits Christine without checking with his bros first. Tells her who all is in it and all! Then he repeats it with Amber! Silly boy! He tells Caleb they need two girls. He tells him they know.
Devin tells the rest of the group. The others aren't thrilled.
Battle of the Block - Big Brother Bash - a 1920s ballroom glam look according to Frankie. Must swing from chandeliers handing off champagne to your partner. The partner in turn tosses champagne at a flute. PauPau can't get her swing going for anything. Victoria and Brittany are doing great. Donny and PauPau finally get into the swing of things (heh) and advance as the girls fall apart. Now the girls have rhythm going again ... and Brittany and Victoria win the Battle of the Block. Frankie is no longer HoH.
As the show closes, it's Donny and PauPau on the block, Caleb the sole HoH.
