Big Brother 16: Nominations, Battle of the Block Show Blog Party - June 29

Big Brother summer on Make A Gif

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.

Hey Jackie and other peeps. I tried to sign up for the pool but it kept throwing me out. I guess they don't like Beagles! LOL

Petals said...

*sliding a slice to Monty

SueGee said...

I got a 1/4 watermelon at the Farmer's Market yesterday. So juicy and fresh. Even cut up it was still HUGE too!

SueGee on the Left Coast

monty924 said...

My early favorites are Derrick, Caleb, Frankie and Christine and Nicole.

Nickelpeed said...

Hey everyone!!!!

Did I miss the nominations? I didn't see the link??

I'm lost, like usual.

jennifer said...

Hello everyone!

JonMD1267 said...

I love these edits lol

Petals said...

I was all about Devin, no longer. Not since he turned on Donny. I read on Jokers that Devin made Donny cry.

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you, Jackie, for hosting us. Apreciate it.

JonMD1267 said...

ZACH ATTACK lol

Petals said...

Mine too, Monty! And Jacosta is growing on me, he is funny & cute.

monty924 said...

Zach is an ASSHAT

Nickelpeed said...

Zach attack....Sure, Sure Zach

Come on girls, WAKE UP!!!! Starte strategizing. DO NOT BE DUMB.

Anonymous said...

Zach= dan wannabe

Cheryl in NC

Petals said...

"They get emotional", HAHAHA Coming from Devin. @@

monty924 said...

Really, on the Devin emotional front. *wink*

He plays about as emotionally as I've ever seen a male play BB. I like him though.

lynn1 said...

I think Christine and Nicole are in some kind of a fog.

Petals said...

Penny, I kinda like Zach. He was crazy in his intro video, but on AD he is just normal.

Jackie said...

Penny - Nothing of consequence yet. Frankie and Caleb working together, a boys alliance formed. Info is in the post itself.

monty924 said...

Penny, the girls alliance was blown up as soon as the feeds went live.

Petals said...

Sue - delish ribs

lynn1 said...

It is so hot here I am on strike for cooking but I have fresh cherries,peaches and Blueberries

Petals said...

Hi Cheryl, Jennifer, Becky, Lynn, Penny & Sue.

lynn1 said...

Hi Petals

Nickelpeed said...

Oh Devin, Devin....you are a jerk. I did like you, now I don't. :-(

JonMD1267 said...

I get so emotional baby lol

Becky said...

I like Donny, but he is in over his head.

monty924 said...

Take a drink... Devin's crying

Well, not

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh! What a really big JERK.

Its hot here too right now, and I'm so eating my ribs inside in the a/c.

TG for not having to turn the stove on today!

SueGee on the Left Coast

I really wanted to like Devin but if he screws Donnie over ..we are going to have a problem...

Cheryl in Nc

SueGee said...

I know it is still Sunday, but do we have a drinking word tonight?

SueGee on the Left Coast

Petals said...

Jon, are you quoting Whitney? :)

lynn1 said...

caleb looks like a real doofus in that blue hat

JonMD1267 said...

If I am one thing I am a child of the 80's Petals lol

Petals said...

*drink*

Are we drinking when anyone cries?
Grrr - Devin is soooo done in my book

monty924 said...

Hot here too. It was the crock-pot and microwave for the most part, but the roast was delish.

SueGee said...

OT - Tomorrow marks 30 days left to work before I retire!! Then maybe I should get the live feeds?? Watch all night long??

SueGee on the Left Coast

JonMD1267 said...

Sidebar The Goldbergs awesome show :)

Nickelpeed said...

No, I meant who was nominated. I looked at your blog, Jackie, and I saw that Donnie won the VETO, but did not see who was nominated prior to that.

Sharon S said...

Hi everyone. I'm having to focus too much to try to remember who everyone is, how they think they operate, how they operate, etc.

Petals said...

BOOO Devin.

KungPao has calmed down a LOT, so I am no longer very irritated by her.
All my first-night impressions are kaput.
What about you guys?

Jackie said...

They haven't shown it yet and the Battle of the Block was already over when the feeds went live. Donny and Paola are the ones who remained on the block -- Frankie's noms.

JonMD1267 said...

I'm still kind of getting used to them other then Donny out the gate I don't have any faves or ones to root for.

Nickelpeed said...

So, Frankie wants to play it safe? Make Caleb the bad guy?

JonMD1267 said...

BB jumping in with the tech lol

SueGee said...

I still haven't learned who is who yet either, and reading this w/o the benefit of it being on TV here is hard. I have most of the key people down, but trying to picture some of them is hard!!

SueGee on the Left Coast

Nickelpeed said...

I agree with pau pau. Not Donnie. Wahahahahaaa

monty924 said...

Aww, I miss the big key wheel. :((

JonMD1267 said...

BAM lol

JonMD1267 said...

BB BETRAYEEEEEEED lol

SueGee said...

Got to run - will try and make it back for the end..

SueGee on the Left Coast

Sharon S said...

Sue - I wouldn't be able to keep up at all without the show on too!

Jackie said...

Excuse, me ... CALEB'S noms were Donny and PauPau.

lynn1 said...

Frankie has a nice mani with polish and french tips

Nickelpeed said...

Why would he vote on two people who came in with him? Aren't all of these people from the first 8 who came in?

David said...

Petals. Most of my impressions about the guys are the same except for Devin. My opinion of all the girls have all changed. LOL

Nickelpeed said...

Geesh, Devin, you are a real player!!!

David said...

And Hi everyone. I will take some unleaded watermellon. Yummm. =)

Becky said...

I knew Donny would be tamong the first one to go on the block. He is too likeable.

monty924 said...

This music is killing me, LOL

Petals said...

I'm glad they don't do the Lazy Susan key necklace thing. That was tiresome.

Jon - So am I, am 80s chick! Everybody Wang Chung tonight!

JonMD1267 said...

Dr. Phil's BB

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, I wasn't expecting that. Wonder if it's real?

JonMD1267 said...

Petals please do not encourage me with that stuff lol

Anonymous said...

Could it be Caleb is growing on me??

Cheryl in NC

Nickelpeed said...

OMGosh....is he for real???? LOL

Becky said...

I like Caleb a bit better. I like Frankie a bit less.

Petals said...

{{{Caleb}}}

Nickelpeed said...

Same here, Becky. Frankie does not want to get his hands dirty.

I wonder when they can be put up for nomination. I thought by the end of the week one of them could be gone?

Petals said...

Jon, just do me a favor?

***** wake me up*****
***before you go go******

Petals said...

I wonder if we get to see Victoria's hair fall out? Apparently it was quite the big incident.

Petals said...

Congrats Sue!! Lucky duck.

Anonymous said...

I do like Nicole and Christine and Derrick along with Donnie...my faves

Cheryl in NC

JonMD1267 said...

That's all I listen to in the car and at work, I like all types of music but I always go for the 80's. I loose my sh*t when Hall & Oates comes on lol

JonMD1267 said...

Why would you just start telling people about your secret alliance without telling the others first.

Petals said...

I have XM radio, and I mostly listen to the 80s, sometimes 70s

JonMD1267 said...

And then go up and wake someone up what the deuce man

Lunn said...

Hey Nickel....if someone uses the power of veto, the ex-HOH could be put up in their place.....and Im really not liking Devin here yuck

Anonymous said...

Geez devin does not no this game

Cheryl in NC

JonMD1267 said...

LOL

Becky said...

SueGee, congratulations on retiring. I enjoyed it for several years. It's a bit rough right now, but this too shall pass.

I am disliking Devin less and less.

Nickelpeed said...

They need to get rid of Devin. He's dangerous.

JonMD1267 said...

Devin meet low man on the totem pole lol

Petals said...

Devin is D-Bag.

Anonymous said...

Bye bye Devin before too long!

Cheryl in NC

Sharon S said...

Devin is dangerous -- Derrick's right -- loose cannon is the phrase!

Anonymous said...

And they HAVE to go along with it, because Devin is so erratic. If they question it at all, he could out the whole alliance.

JonMD1267 said...

Bust a BEAN I'm done lol

monty924 said...

Donny is a hoot

JonMD1267 said...

Devin's going to make Julie a member Thursday.

JonMD1267 said...

Keep digging it Devin, please.

Nickelpeed said...

I'm a classic rock person. I grew up in the 60's and 70's. But, I do love Hall and Oats.

Penny

Thank you Lun, I wasn't sure how it worked this year.

Anonymous said...

Paranoia meet Devon ...lol...geez

Cheryl in NC

JonMD1267 said...

If Joey had of played that correctly he might have been on the block.

Petals said...

Donny's playing dumb?
And Devin is playing sane.

monty924 said...

Devin is right about Donny. He may be paranoid, but with good reason.

lynn1 said...

Maybe by the time next week's nominations have to made Donny will have made some friends and Devin can go home or to the psych facility of his choice

Petals said...

Caleb looks awesome in that top & tails

lynn1 said...

Frankie looks like Harpo Marx

Petals said...

wow, nice set. BB must have a little extra cash.

JonMD1267 said...

Someone on the staff just watched Gatsby.

JonMD1267 said...

That is funny

Nickelpeed said...

Who has everyone been voting for in the Team America?

monty924 said...

Pao'g going to hang herself

JonMD1267 said...

I'm literally gonna p my pants that is fn funny

Nickelpeed said...

Wow. How funny

Petals said...

What the EFF is Pau doing?

David said...

I have been throwing my votes to Donny. He needs something to get him out there and maybe that would help.

Petals said...

What a fun comp - I love the costumes, the men look great in those hats

JonMD1267 said...

That was a good comp

Nickelpeed said...

I don't understand this. Caleb nominated Donnie and Pau. Frankie nominated the other two, why is Caleb safe?

Anonymous said...

That was fun....goodnight all!

Cheryl in NC

Nickelpeed said...

Thank you Jackie. Appreciate you hosting.

I work Wednesday night, so I'll try to check in at work.

Penny

Becky said...

Thanks for hosting, Jackie. See you guys probably on Thurs. We will be at MD Anderson on Wed.

monty924 said...

Penny, the two who wins dethrone the HoH who nominated them.

Great party. See everyone on Wednesday.

Sharon S said...

Thanks for hosting and posting for us Jackie!

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, I see. Thanks Monty

Good luck Becky.

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. That was one fast hour. See all of you on Wed night (I hope)

JonMD1267 said...

Thanks Jackie!!! Everyone have a safe and great week, see you Wednesday!!

Jackie said...

Penny - Because his nominees (people he put up for eviction, to get rid of) won the comp, Frankie is dethroned. Kind of a get even kind of thing.

Jackie said...

Thanks for coming by!

Petals said...

Dave, I also threw all my votes to Donny.
Thank you Jackie! Fastest hour on television, every time.

uncartie said...

Wow! Where do I start? Devin has a huge over exaggerated need to control everything. Add in his obsessive over thinking everything and that's going to be his quick ticket out of the house.
I originally disliked Paola but she won me over tonight. Caleb also.
Zach is a spoiled punk straight out of central casting.
Frankie is hilarious and smart as a whip! I think he'll run away wit America's choice next week.

Delee said...

So if Joey goes home, who takes her spot in America's Team?
I voted for Donny....

pat rw said...

im with petals, I have changed my opinion on a lot of people in the house: amber I now like, Brittney not, caleb now I like, Christine I do, cody don't like, derrick yes, devin hated it, Donny duh, Frankie like, hayden not, jocasta nope, joey like then not I hate people that flip fast like her and devin, just dumb, sorry, got carried away, laughin...Nicole like, pau pau I like now, Victoria not, Zach never, some people like Zach is just never liked....
