Big Brother 16: Season Premiere Blog Party!

Big Brother summer on Make A Gif

Is this what you want, Lester? Another summer of Big Brother? Oh, wait. I'm mixing Fargo up with Big Brother. No, Lorne Malvo is NOT a houseguest this season. Although, you have to admit that would be interesting!

Before we get the party started, a few reminders:
  • If you want in on the blog pool, you need to sign up on the blog pool sign-up post. Only there, please. It might be missed if you want in on this party post! As we are skipping the first ousted hamster, the cut-off for signing up for the pool is this Sunday night, midnight EDT.
  • Due to the two night season premiere, the live feeds aren't starting until after tomorrow night's show ends West Coast time (1am here). I doubt my first live feeds report will be before early Friday morning.
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! But the real party is in the comments. Come join in on the fun!

So ... hamster-watchers? Are we ready! It's AWN (in the famous words of Monica Bailey BB2) ...

8 are being introduced -- Pau Pau, Donny, Cody, Frankie, Amber, Nicole, Devin, Joey. Julie tells them they're facing the most twisted season ever, but only mentions they'll find out why there's only eight there later.

Cody, Amber, Donny and Joey go in the house first. Then the second group. It's Paolo *Pau Pau, who figures out there's sixteen in all.

Of course, this eight want to stick together as an alliance. They decide they're the Crazy8s. Devin makes a side alliance with Donny. The girls want a girl alliance called El Quatro. PauPau is suspicious that Frankie and Cody will form an alliance.

Julie shows up on the monitor promising a crowded house soon. She tells all about the HoH, ends with "completely safe, scratch that last part." She tells them that just because you're HoH, doesn't mean you're safe. Then she goes off screen.

PauPau is hitting on Cody big time. Frankie also has a crush on Cody.

They go to the yard in swimsuits for the HoH comp. Go Fly a Kite -- HG must hold up their kite string while on a rotating beam (kind of like log-rolling).

Out first is PauPau. Too bad, so sad. Joey is out. Nicole is down once sunscreen is sprayed by BB. The log changes direction. Donny, then Devin down. Cody is down.

FRANKIE wins HoH!

Julie keeps talking about the "Team America" vote regarding whom we'd like to make an alliance with and threatening another big twist.

They have to go to the living room, Frankie is directed to one of the nomination chairs. Julie tells them that another group of eight will be in and there will be two HoHs. But, by the end of the week, only one HoH will remain standing.

Team America news -- the winner of that will be a part of a three person alliance chosen by us, one a week chosen. They will have secret missions and all.

Tomorrow night is the second eight. Sunday night will be the Battle of the Block.

Petals said...

Oh geeminy - a screaming lefty. Urgh

monty924 said...

BBDonny will be fun to watch. My prediction, LOL

lynn1 said...

I forgot to mention I have fresh corn on the cob cooked in spicy crab boil with butter and Parmesan cheese to smear on it

Petals said...

Amner & Devin? Hmmm.

Jackie said...

Hey, all!

Petals said...

I like Devin, too.
Very well-spoken.

monty924 said...

Lynn, that sounds fabulous. YUM

Petals said...

Ariana Grande H

Petals said...

WHO?

Nickelpeed said...

BBDonny is going to be VERY interesting to watch with all those Southerners. Uhmmmmm

monty924 said...

Yes, Penny :)))

Petals said...

Oh man, sounds delish Lynn!

monty924 said...

Love Julie's dress

monty924 said...

Chick with the blue hair is cursed... first one in the door

monty924 said...

I already love Donny :))

Delee said...

I do not think I will care for Paola. We will see!

Petals said...

You're right, Monty - I love these potatoes!

Nickelpeed said...

O - M - GOSH!!! LOL

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and all my buddies. I like Donny. Such an innocent.
Julie looks great.

Petals said...

Smurfette said,"it's the Left way or the highway". Well, don't let the door hit ya!

monty924 said...

Jackie, in case I forget to... Thank You for the best BB parties ever!!!!

Petals said...

New drinking game: DRINK whenever PinkieLee mentions his sister.
HAHAHAHA
(we'll need a designated driver this season)

Nickelpeed said...

Run away, Cody --- right now!!!

Marybeth said...

Am I the only one who has no clue who Frankie's sister is?

carrie halcomb said...

I'm already disliking "Paupau".

Petals said...

Hi Becky!

Becky said...

Do most of these house guest seem more immature than usual?

SharonS said...

Wow, never thought Devon would find Joey to be his type!

jennifer said...

Hmmmm Amber or Joey...what is Devin going to do?

Petals said...

Any newbies?

Nickelpeed said...

I like the guy with the beard. I'll have to go back to learn his name. Like Devin, too.

lynn1 said...

Marybeth I don't know who Pinkie's sister is either

jennifer said...

Totally agree SharonS

Nickelpeed said...

I do not know who Frankie's sister is either.

Okay, I missed the America thing, is it on their website?

Hi Becky, how are you doing?

monty924 said...

Penny, it's Donny. I think he'll go far. Just a hunch but I like him too.

lynn1 said...

The Pulled pork and cole slaw really yummy

Jackie said...

I also have never heard of Frankie's sister, nor of him prior to this.

I like Donny (the one with the beard) and Nicole.

Petals said...

Carrie - I'm with you. Not like PauPau (but that's OK, she seems to like herself enough for the both of us)

Shannon said...

It's funny to size them up in their interviews and bio's then to see them in action can totally change a person's perceptive.... I can't wait to watch when its pacific coast time's turn.

Jackie said...

The vote was only up one day, I think. When I first went there it was already closed.

David said...

No MaryBeth, you are not the only one who has no idea who she is. LOL

Jackie said...

Petals - You'll be happy to know that I've heard PauPau is a friend of GinaMarie's.

Delee said...

I have heard Pinkie sister's name before but that is about it. I like Donny also, easy to remember his name with the beard!

Anyone else not have the pictures with your name on the posts?

Petals said...

Marybeth, I think the Grande person is a TEEN sensation. Platinum selling TEEN.

David said...

And Hi everyone. =) Hopeing for another great summer lounging in Jackies pool. Pull me out if I start to look too much like a prune.

Susan from MA said...

Hi everyone!

jennifer said...

If they do crunches on every show, I will have amazing abs by the end of the show lol

Nickelpeed said...

THey will never stay together. The look on Joey's face, says it all. She will not do it. That's too, too funny

Anonymous said...

OMG. Devin's abs.

He has an 8 pack!

Team Devin & Donny

carrie halcomb said...

Ariana Grande just turned 21. She was on a Nickelodeon show and now has her own music career. She's a pretty talented singer.

Nickelpeed said...

I like this guy Donny. How funny.

Delee said...

I may faint every time Devin removes his shirt....HOT DA*M

monty924 said...

Girl Power... I'm betting my last dollar it won't last.

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, I wouldn't mind seeing a girl brigade. We'll see if they stick with it.

Anonymous said...

I just noticed my avatar was missing.

Can't wait until the vote out PauPau

Nickelpeed said...

Uh oh, another Jordan?

monty924 said...

Nicole may be the new Jordan

BTW, I loved Jordan

Petals said...

Thanks Carrie.
I don't have kids, never watch Nick.
Of course, I can only speak for myself - all those young teen popsters are interchangeable to me. Below my radar.

Petals said...

Delee!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Another Summer in the BB House! Hi Everybody!

Joey & Amber in an alliance might not be such a good idea... (Devin)

monty924 said...

Something about dimple chin boy I don't like. Hmmmmm

Nickelpeed said...

Having this 8 here early, gives them a huge disadvantage. The next 8 coming in next will be targeted.

Yikes, they do not like that.

Delee said...

Petals !!!!! Hola

pisgahscience said...

Well, another season and another group. Looking forward to another great season guys. :)
-anybodybutjanelle (Old User Name)

carrie halcomb said...

I love all the twists they are throwing at them. People go in the house with a game plan, but these twists throw all of that out the window.

lynn1 said...

Paola is already getting on my last nerve so that means she will last for a long time

monty924 said...

I think we'll be ragging on Paulo before long

Nickelpeed said...

We'll see how they all feel when the next group comes in with hot guys and gorgeous women. LOL

SueGee said...

~~~SPLASH~~~~

Better late than never!! I hate these early shows!!

SueGee on the Left Coast

carrie halcomb said...

She needed to count that out?! Oh, PauPau is going to drive me crazy.

And this is why all girl alliances don't work.

monty924 said...

They're going to do this move over two nights. Grrrrr

Nickelpeed said...

Any spoilers to this year?

Nickelpeed said...

Oooo, I like the bright blue shoes

David said...

I really wish Julie had not told them that the HOH is not safe. She should have waited until after both HOH competitions.

monty924 said...

None that I've seen Penny. We don't get any spoilers on BB other than the years that the feeds leaked early.

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Amber. Keep it going.

Dang, Nicole is down

Nickelpeed said...

Man, she sounds just like Jordan, doesn't she?

SueGee said...

Malvo would be interesting but so would the deputy LOL doncha know

SueGee on the Left Coast

monty924 said...

That's the first showmance of the summer

Marybeth said...

That poor boy better run, and fast!!

Nickelpeed said...

This girl needs some salt peter. Dang,

lynn1 said...

I bet Cody is used to having the ladies drool over him. I am pretty sure Paola is not his type

Becky said...

Paola is very annoying! Oh, before we go any further I am going OT for a bit. My husband has been diagnosed with throat cancer. We go to MD Anderson on July 3 for a second opinion and perhaps a plan of action.

Good new is that Momma is hanging in there. She will be 96 next year.

Now back to the show.

Nickelpeed said...

Donny sounds like Gomer Pyle. LOL

JonMD1267 said...

Hello BB people !!!!

Ed in Ohio said...

Thoughts & Prayers for you & your husband Becky.

monty924 said...

Prayers for your hubby and you, Becky!

lynn1 said...

Becky sorry to hear the news about your husband. M.D. Anderson is a great hospital with fabulous Drs.

Nickelpeed said...

Prayers to you and hubby, Becky.

Ed in Ohio said...

Off Topic; I saw today that Caleb from Survivor (Colton's significant other) was killed in a train accident at work.

Petals said...

Hey Jon, Hey Ed, hey Dave!

{{{Pisgahscience}}} Hey man - how are you???


Can one of you guys help me with this ice cream? My arm is about to fall out from all this cranking!

carrie halcomb said...

I heard that too, Ed. Such a sad thing.

Nickelpeed said...

OH NO! I didn't hear that Caleb ws killed. That's terrible. I liked Caleb. How very, very sad.

Petals said...

Yes, Ed. That is tragic.
Maybe we should have a minute of blog silence, in memory of him?

Jackie said...

Yes, Ed. That was horrible news. I really liked Caleb. I can't imagine how Colton is.

monty924 said...

Lending an arm to crank out the ice cream. Strawberry... YUM

David said...

There is a reason they made electric motors to turn that ice cream Petals. =) Time to upgrade. I will chip in. And Hi =)

Nickelpeed said...

So, does that mean one of them will leave???

Petals said...

Thanks Monty.

Danny Zucco is precious. Paola is in heat. Devin & Donny are awesome.

monty924 said...

Yep, I don't like Cody already

monty924 said...

I can't keep track of all of these twists, LOL

lynn1 said...

I have an electric churn we can use next time

Ed in Ohio said...

Devin & Donny .... Double D

I gotta' check out this Team America thing?

monty924 said...

Oh Boy... the feeds better go live tonight, or I'll be ticked off. :)))

Nickelpeed said...

Oh gosh, HOH can be evicted. Wow. Will be an interesting season.

Thank you Jackie. Appreciate it a lot.

Prayers, Becky.

And really sad about Caleb.

JonMD1267 said...

I'll have my stuff together Thursday night and be on time lol Thanks Jackie!!! and am glad to be back with you all and have a good night!!

Becky said...

Thank you for the thoughts and prayers.

Jackie, thanks for letting me post my information. And thank you for hosting us. The nights here with you peeps is the high light of my evenings.

I promise refreshment tomorrow night.

Petals said...

Thank you Jackie!
Guess I'll freeze the ice cream until tomorrow night :)

Thank you Jackie!!!! It was great seeing everyone.
Pisgah - please keep coming back.

xoxoxoxxoxo

Jackie said...

Ed - the voting is closed for this week.

Ed in Ohio said...

Well we'll have to see what the next 8 will bring. Nite all!

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. See all of you tomorrow night.

carrie halcomb said...

First impressions: I like Donny, Devin, Joey, and Amber. Nicole seems sweet, but perhaps too much so. I can't stand Paola. The jury is out on Cody and Frankie.

monty924 said...

Saw that today, Ed. Jackie posted it on FB. So very sad and my thoughts and prayers are out to his family and Colton. :(

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks Jackie maybe I can remember to vote next week.

jessica UNderwood said...

Hey how are you? Let me know if you come to the coast and need a facial 😊

Jackie said...

Petals - You're confusing me. Who the heck is "Danny Zucko"? Can we use real names since we're still learning their names right now?

carrie halcomb said...

It was nice chatting with you all. I'll be working tomorrow night, so I'll have to catch it on DVR. Enjoy the show tomorrow night!

Jackie said...

Thanks to all for coming!

monty924 said...

See you all tomorrow night for round two. :))

Thanks again, Jackie!

uncartie said...

Having to listen to Paola is already grating on my nerves

Delee said...

Danny Zuko from Grease aka John Travolta!

Jackie said...

Oh. I'm just not seeing the resemblance -- totally different face shape and all. Let's call him Cody.

Delee said...

I do not see it either...Cody it will be...twas not my suggestion!

Petals said...

sorry. :( Cody. You know how I am, I make up names. But you do have to remind me every season to not do it.

Chacha said...

just finished watching the show, Nicoles voice is really irritating.
Can't believe I missed the vote for team america.
Hope everyone had fun at the pool@

Jackie said...

Petals - Mainly because it's hard to tell which person you're talking about! At least with this one.

Chacha - There will be another vote for the next two weeks for the next two in the alliance. I'm not sure I like this twist.

Shannon said...

Petals being a huge Grease fan, I totally see the comparison :-D

WolfpackRed said...

I'm tickled Donny is a NC State fan. =) Guess the WolfpackRed gave me away LOL

Chacha said...

Jackie- i just am not sure about this america team alliance.
One of the only america votes I loved was Eric Stein in season 8.

RBennie said...

Being that I have the musical tastes of a 14 year-old girl, I do know who Ariana Grande is. Her album is on my Ipod. She's like 20 or 21, but looks 12 and has this powerhouse singing voice that you would never expect to come out of her tiny body. I don't think Frankie has to worry about anyone other than the DJ knowing who she is though, LOL. I enjoy a good twist and all, but are they going to be throwing them out left and right?

Petals said...

Hi RBennie!
I Googled the Grande chick, they call her baby Mariah (for her vocal range), right?
Her brother has it in his head that she is as famous as Madonna or something, and he drops her name left & right in confessionals. LOL You know he is just bursting to tell people.
See you later, at the Pool Party, Part 2.
