Big Brother 16: Live Feeds - HoH Winners - July 31

Nicole  and Donny are the new HoHs! They're talking about working together well. Yay!

Zach volunteered to Nicole to be one of her nominations. He said that way she could get him back for what he's done to her. He also told Caleb that it would make it easier on her. Aw, does Zach have a soft side?

Big Brother 16: Live Eviction and HoH Show Blog Party - July 31

Big Brother summer on Make A Gif

Hopefully tonight we'll have a real change in the HoH! As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this blog entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest news! As it always is -- the real party is down in the comments area! Come join in on the fun!

Here are the latest blog pool standings from ORKMommy --

PaoPao - Jackie, Lisa Bishop, Chrob61, lynn1
Devin - Donna in Alabama, Lili, Sparty, Merrilee, SarahT
Brittany - Dierdre, ML, Shannon, Gaylos, Donna E

Let the show begin! 

Amber is searching for answers as to why she's on the block. Now Caleb regrets his part in getting her placed there. He throws EVERYBODY in the alliance under the bus, telling her they all knew it was going on.

Team America chose the two hinky votes, blame on others mission. Donny balks at the mission saying it's not in his character to set up people.

The live voting is ready to begin --
Amber -- Speaks of family, friends and Jocasta, love you guys, honest and loyal, benefit your games if I stayed.
Jocasta -- Acknowledge God and family first, trustworthy, loyal, pray for you all, etc.

The votes to evict:
Hayden -- Amber
Victoria -- Amber
Donny -- Amber (says the mission was too risky)
Derrick -- Amber (also mentioned TA and apologized)
Zach -- Amber
Caleb -- Amber
Christine -- Amber
Cody -- Amber
Nicole -- Amber

Yet another unanimous vote, Amber is voted out.

HoH comp -- the hamsters viewed videos of themselves yesterday and that will be part of today's comp. Still two HoH this week. "Getting Loopy" - a series of statements based on the videos, true or false.

Jocasta out.
Victoria, Christine and Derrick out.
Cody out.
Five-way tie, out of time for the live broadcast. Commercial.

They will announce the HoH Winners on Sunday -- but I'll let you know tonight in a separate post. Next week is Double Eviction.

Big Brother 16: Live Feeds Wednesday night into Thursday - July 31

I want to decline this mission

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Mission Impossible?:
  • Ho-hum. They talked a lot of small talk about food and previous seasons.
  • When they talked about how double evictions, Zach and Frankie are not all that knowledgeable about how they actually go down. Donny is.
  • But we know that it's not a double eviction tonight.
  • We know Julie always tells us!
  • Caleb is sure it's tonight.
  • Heh. He probably wants to go off into the sunset with his true love forever and forever.
  • Run like the wind, Amber! Escape!
  • Caleb says that after the show is over, he and Amber will go on a date.
  • @@
  • I say she'll get a restraining order.
  • As always, there's a lot of speculation over who would be nominated if various hamsters won HoH.
  • It's something they do to pass the time and grow the paranoia.
  • Caleb says that they let him do a second goodbye message to Amber because he was bawling in the first one.
  • I hope they show the first one.
  • Frankie and Zach continue to grow closer. Zach promised to tell Frankie if he heard either Derrick or Cody say anything about him. Frankie is worried because Christine's name is being brought up more and more as a possible target.
  • As she should be. She's useless. She can go home.
  • Derrick received the Team America mission -- it's the hinky votes one in which two have to vote against the house, then accuse two others of the hinky votes from the time of the eviction announcement to when they go out to play for HoH.
  • They don't like the mission.
  • Donny wants to decline the mission.
  • Derrick thinks they can blame Caleb (voting to keep Amber) and Zach.
  • I think Donny might be worried that they might actually tip the scale and send Jocasta home. 
  • Meanwhile, while Team America is panicking about the hinky vote mission inside, Nicole and Hayden are outside talking about how Christine might throw in a hinky vote just to mess with people.
  • Heck, there's one just there!
  • Donny finally said he'd do it if the others do, but doesn't want anyone blaming him for it later on.
  • They are seriously thinking of not doing the mission. We'll see. 
  • Donny thinks it's seriously out of character for him and he came to win the half-million, not play America's game.
  • While Derrick admits he's also there to win the big prize, he thinks it an honor to be chosen and wants to try to complete each mission.
  • After Donny left Derrick and Frankie, they both talked of how little Donny has done in these missions. Frankie wants him out.
  • That's all she wrote for now ...


Why do they keep her?

Victoria talks religion

What are we gonna do?

Big Brother 16: Live Feeds Wednesday into the evening - July 30

Like peas in a pod

Okay, I'm here. I just barely made it what with that nasty Sharknado hitting nearby NYC! Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Landsharks:
  • Donny and Jocasta talked about immature Caleb is at 26 and not getting that Amber has no interest in him.
  • Hey, everybody sees it except Caleb!
  • Caleb has been running around to everyone telling them it's his fault Amber's on the block and not to vote her out.
  • They lounged around without much going on until ...
  • ... the Memory Wall changed to videos of each of them in comps!
  • Most likely something will come up about this during this week's HoH comp or, if not, a future comp.
  • So, they studied them intently.
  • Frankie seemed the least interested. As outgoing HoH, he won't be playing in the HoH comp Thursday.
  • Zach was the first other person to give up.
  • Right now he thinks he's sitting pretty in the house despite his outbursts.
  • He probably is.
  • Hayden told Donny that Frankie should be nominated before Caleb because he's more dangerous in the game -- anyone can make Caleb do anything. He's just that dense.
  • Of course, Hayden doesn't know that Donny has a reason for wanting to keep Frankie around.
  • And Donny can't/won't tell him.
  • If not for Team America, I'm sure Donny would agree with Hayden.
  • Cody told Derrick that Hayden talked of backdooring Frankie if there's a double eviction.
  • Again, Derrick can't/won't mention Team America to Cody.
  • Derrick thinks that Hayden and Nicole are growing too close and he knows Nicole lied to him about the whole after PoV/Amber fiasco.
  • Frankie had admitted to Derrick that he embellished that and Nicole had actually confirmed it to Derrick. So, one of them is lying to Derrick!
  • I hope he doesn't set his sights on them.
  • I'd rather see Christine go next.
  • She brings no entertainment value to me on these long summer nights.
  • She can go away.
  • Victoria is still stalking Derrick, albeit not in a Caleb-ish way.
  • Caleb wants to throw tomorrow's HoH comp.
  • I say, "Let him!"
  • Unfortunately, Derrick says otherwise and told him he should try to win it.
  • Gah.
  • Just what we need ... Lonesome Creepy Cowboy reigning over the house!
  • The plan is still to vote out Amber and, for the moment, Caleb is going with the vote.
  • We'll see. It wouldn't take a Sharknado to change his mind once again.

Donny checks his FitBit

Hey! Whazzat on the Memory Wall?

Why, it's video clips!

Studying, some more than others

Big Brother 16: PoV Show Blog Party - July 30

Big Brother summer on Make A Gif

Ready for the party? 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, if you're looking for the real party -- head down to the comments area. I hope to see you there!

Recap, recap. Victoria and Jocasta upset with each other, naturally. Amber is the backdoor plan. Zach is running around annoying people. He's decided to bug the Have Nots. Frankie wants Zach to stay quiet ... until the Veto Meeting (for Team America). Nicole gets to shun the Germa-tard.

Hayden asks Victoria to choose him if she gets Houseguest's Choice in the PoV players pick -- he promises to take her off the block if he wins. Nicole is suspicious.

Derrick gets the news that his grandfather has passed away.

Caleb thinks he's Beast Mode Cowboy and will ignore Amber as he keeps talking about and obsessing about Amber.

Veto players pick time! Frankie draws Donny, Victoria gets HG choice and chooses Hayden, Jocasta gets Christine. Christine will keep nominations the same as she does NOT want them to put Amber on the block.

Veto comp -- Amber hosts. A western theme, Caleb is upset he's not in it. Rocking horses, stacking gold bars, timed to get back on horse, rocking 60 times, can go on slop for a week to get back in game. They only get 30 seconds to stack their gold bars. Jocasta timed out and took slop.

Hayden wins the power of veto!

Zach gets Caleb *the dummy* to run to Frankie suggesting they pretend Amber is going to be backdoored to teach her a lesson. Oy.

Team America -- Vote against the majority of house, convincing two others did it or get two TA members as HoH.

Time for the veto meeting and will the Zach attack win TA another five grand each? Jocasta says she's trustworthy, loyal, etc. Victoria chose him to play for it. Hayden uses the veto to save Victoria. Frankie puts Amber up. Zach gets up, lights into Amber. Mission failed. She just smiled at him.

Big Brother 16: Live Feeds Tuesday night into Wednesday - July 30

Hayden manhandles Nicole

Tomorrow night should be very interesting. Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of I've Got Your Back Bro:
  • The late night started off quiet enough -- a pool tournament with a mild kerfuffle over the game.
  • Then it all got interesting, almost to the point of addicting.
  • Frankie is still thinking of himself and those bloody hands. He thinks they might want to split the vote so Caleb isn't as mad when it all goes down.
  • Derrick and Zach think no on that thought.
  • Derrick thinks that might put Jocasta at risk for going home if they split the vote. They definitely want Amber to go.
  • Zach thinks that Caleb might try to self-evict if Amber goes.
  • Too bad, so sad, I say.
  • Meanwhile, Amber is talking to Christine about the girls taking over.
  • A bit too late for that, as well as implausible.
  • Christine runs back to report to Derrick that Amber was talking about the six guys being in an alliance and that Amber would put Caleb up on the block.
  • Oh, way to play into their plan, Amber!
  • Amber told Cody that she thinks her alliance (the guys) don't have her back.
  • Well, duh.
  • Frankie, Derrick and Chistine weighed the options of keeping Amber.
  • For a few minutes, that is.
  • Christine doesn't want to get rid of Amber. Y'know, that will make her a target of the boys sooner than later.
  • Derrick spent a lot of time avoiding Victoria. She's latched onto him and he likens her to a chihuahua in with a bunch of pit bulls. He thinks she's just too naive for the crowd.
  • He's probably right to a point there. Victoria is like a lesser Donny watching people. Donny knows what to do with the bits and pieces he picks up. Victoria watches, picks up on what's happening, but doesn't always know what it means.
  • Frankie et al decide it's best to pit Amber and Caleb against each other, which was pretty much the original plan anyway.
  • Derrick thinks they should wait on that.
  • But, do they wait?
  • Nope.
  • It goes down.
  • Frankie told Caleb that Amber is targeting him (Caleb) and will put him on the block if she gets HoH.
  • Zach agrees.
  • Cody agrees.
  • Caleb is crushed, mad ... and runs away.
  • Well, downstairs.
  • Derrick reined him in and brought him back upstairs.
  • "We've got your back, bro."
  • "We didn't want to tell you because we knew it would hurt you."
  • "She's bad news."
  • Again ... hook, line and sinker.
  • I think Caleb just might be the most manipulation-friendly hamster we've ever seen in the house. He'll fall for any story. 
  • Just from house scuttlebutt with Frankie and Zach, it sounds like they might have Christine in their sights as the next girl out.
  • But Caleb would be first.
  • Caleb is thinking of how to wreak revenge on Amber from pranks to "murking her."
  • Zach is, as he usually does, egging him on.
  • Derrick and Cody tell Caleb he should run anything he wants to do by the Diary Room to make sure he doesn't get in trouble.
  • I feel the need to point out that Frankie was amongst the missing for most of the talk with Cody, Zach, Derrick and Caleb.
  • Is he falling out of favor with them?
  • Yep, I think so. Of course, Caleb is out of favor with him, but he was the topic of the night. He had to be there.
  • Today is another day. We'll see if there are any real brouhahas. At least we're getting some drama now.
He's cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs

Lying doesn't become him

Lookin' the fool in more ways than one

Frankie's head explodes

Big Brother 16: Live Feeds into Tuesday evening - July 29

Smiling because she's Caleb-free right now

Y'know, if Caleb was here right here right now ... I'd have to duct tape his mouth. Or something. I'm SO tired of hearing him go on and on, saying the same things over and over again. Maybe duct tape his mouth and kick him in the knee for good measure. And, mind you, I'm not normally a violent person!

Here's today's happenings from inside that Big Brother House of Circular Discussions:
  • They goofed up this morning and one of the wake-up songs came through on the feeds for a bit. Something about "put your hand down my pants."
  • Um. No. I wouldn't really want to wake up to that, thank you very much!
  • Caleb has noticed that his confrontations with Nicole over what Amber said to her after the PoV differ whether Frankie's in the room with them or not.
  • "I'm not an idiot," says Caleb.
  • Well, yeah. You are. Why don't you just go sit in the corner flexing your muscles and admiring your tattoos. Ah, good boy!
  • But, no. Caleb doesn't do that. He continues to interrogate people over who said what to whom. 
  • Get a clue. It's too late. You were a fool and, unfortunately, Amber is paying the price.
  • Caleb is sure that he can gather the votes to save Amber.
  • Oh, to be a knight in shining armor rescuing the damsel in distress once again!
  • Frankie got his HoH camera and just about all the photos were selfies.
  • That's a first.
  • However, it's Frankie and we should have seen it coming.
  • Victoria told Hayden she doesn't think of him in a boyfriend kind of way and Nicole should understand that.
  • He said he doesn't think of her in a girlfriend kind of way, either. If he did, they wouldn't be able to share the same bed.
  • After he said that, he followed up with: "Wanna make out?"
  • The hamsters think they're due a luxury comp and a double eviction.
  • They're not getting either right away, I don't think.
  • I would say it's quite possible that a week from Thursday could be a double eviction. We are kind of due, but Julie always warns the viewers.
  • As for the luxury comp, I don't believe they had one last season and perhaps the season before, too.
  • Caleb bragged to Zach about being a celebrity in his town even before BB.
  • He keeps going on about The Voice. Now, I know someone who actually made the second round of that show. At the time, she was very excited about the possibilities. But when she didn't make it on the show (same as Caleb), it was over. She never went bragging that she was on The Voice when she wasn't!
  • He also bragged about how good-looking he and his brothers are. Well, I can't speak of the brothers. But, to me, Caleb looks like the love child of a Charlie Sheen/Eminem gay romance gone bad.
  • I know. I know. I'm being very mean about Caleb. That's not really like me. But he's droned on for two days straight now, same stuff over and over again. And, in between he talks about how great he is.
  • EEEK!
  • Caleb told Frankie he cried when he taped the goodbye message to Amber.
  • Who would expect anything else from him? I mean, really. 
  • Nicole is almost a basket case. Caleb keeps questioning her. She knows Amber is going home, so isn't worried about Amber, but is scared of Caleb. She doesn't know whether to tell the truth or lie.
  • Heck, if it were me, I'd tell him I'm not dealing with him anymore. Go away!
  • Amber made cinnamon rolls for the Have Nots.
  • I do feel sorry for Amber. She got a raw deal on the show just because a psycho stalker became infatuated with her and tainted her game.
  • After numerous discussions, it still looks like they're not going to tell Caleb/Amber that the vote will be a landslide for her to go.
  • They're having a pool tournament now.
  • Yawn.
  • But it's better than listening to the Caleb broken record, for sure. 

Yet, she's on his mind (or lack of one)

Big Brother 16: Live Feeds Monday night into Tuesday - July 29

Hayden isn't in the house mess

Welp, Caleb's infatuation with Amber has indeed cost her the game. We can only hope that Caleb himself does himself in as well in the coming week or two. Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Pancakes:
  • After the whole Quietly Backdoor Amber Plan blew up, the more aggressive Okay, Amber You're Going Home Plan took its place.
  • Caleb told Frankie he feels responsible for it and would prefer Jocasta go home.
  • @@
  • Now, they were going to do this whether Caleb went along or not! The dolt is just too um ... doltish to realize it.
  • The sad thing (other than the whole Caleb infatuation which ruined any chances Amber ever had in the house) is that Amber can't even spend much time in peace.
  • Caleb keeps cornering her, questioning her.
  • NO, she did NOT enjoy the "date" with him. Leave her alone! You've done enough damage.
  • He once again wants to be her knight in shining armor and save her.
  • Dude, she just isn't into you. Sure, at this point, any help anyone can try to give her, she'll take. But then she'll drop you like a hot potato.
  • Nicole's upset because now Amber is mad at her. Derrick told her it's because Frankie threw her under the bus. 
  • I wonder how all these buses fit in that tiny backyard?
  • In these many talks, Amber has hinted that she didn't want any romance because she recently lost someone. She doesn't want to go into details.
  • Whether that's it or not ... she's NOT INTERESTED IN CALEB.
  • Sheesh.
  • Caleb tried to convince Cody they need to keep Amber.
  • Bwahahaha!
  • Does he seriously think with this huge kerfuffle, they're going to change their minds and keep her now? Voting her out is pretty much the only option at hand because of all the damage done.
  • Caleb is a broken record, repeating things ad nauseam.
  • My only hope is that he gets laryngitis.
  • Really.
  • Where's the main tool of destruction through all of this?
  • Yes, I'm talking Zach.
  • He slept through the majority of the aftermath.
  • It doesn't matter to him anyway. It's all a big joke to him.
  • But, with Caleb going off the deep end, he'll be out before Zach. While Zach is a wild card, he's easily usable by the others -- just get him excited about the chance of ruffling feathers and he's on it!
  • In other news, Nicole has been upset that Victoria keeps hanging on Hayden. Hayden has told her he's not interested in Victoria while Victoria told Derrick she needs Hayden in the game. 
  • Caleb finally admitted to Amber that he threw the pillow at her (after telling her once again he was asleep).
  • She doesn't know how creepy and stalkerish he looked in the hoodie with the night vision cameras on. It could have been out of a horror movie. Thankfully it was only a pillow he threw.
  • Donny and Hayden talked to each other about Frankie needing to go home. They think everyone LIKES them while everyone LOVES Frankie, not good for their chances.
  • Y'know, I like Donny and Hayden more than I like Frankie.
  • They're both playing a good game on their own. Frankie's running from side to side will hurt him in the long run, I think.
  • Derrick is playing the best game of all.
  • Alas, I don't think any of the women are playing a good game this season.
  • Not that I want another Rachel, mind you.
  • But I wouldn't mind seeing another BB6 version of Janelle in it to win it.
  • So, things are pretty set. Amber should be going out the door despite Caleb's persuasion attempts which we can expect for the next two days.

"At the end of the day ..."

Amber will be going home

Really? The cameras are everywhere?

Big Brother 16: Live Feeds Monday/PoV Meeting - July 28

Caleb stares at Amber

Oh my gosh. I don't even know where to start today. Here's roughly what happened today in that Big Brother House of Caleb Gone Wild:
  • Okay, remember that Caleb twisted around the Backdoor Amber plan set up by most of the house as his own little creation.
  • He stalked Amber in the wee hours of the morning, throwing a pillow on her which she later blamed on Hayden.
  • It doesn't sound like the "argument" during the PoV meeting would count for the Team America mission as it sounds like Zach ranting.
  • It sounds like Zach not only ranted his rant at Amber, but may have thrown Frankie and Derrick under the bus while doing so.
  • Amber is steamed.
  • After the PoV meeting (when the feeds returned) she confronted just about everyone ... but not Caleb.
  • All professed innocence, not knowing what Frankie was going to do with the re-nom.
  • Then she talked to Caleb. He threw all of his buddies under the bus, said they were all in on it.
  • They dragged poor Nicole in on it and she admitted that Amber had talked about an all-girl alliance as the "boys" were going to pick them off one by one.
  • Caleb told Amber that the original idea was his, but they all lied to him.
  • Then Frankie got called in to the Amber/Caleb discussion. He totally threw Frankie under the bus right in front of Amber.
  • Frankie asked Amber to leave and lit right into Caleb, practically yelling at him.
  • Caleb is sure that Amber had enjoyed the "date" with Amber, Nicole reported differently.
  • Frankie could almost get an Emmy for his dramatic verbal assault on Caleb.
  • Caleb crumbled.
  • He's lost his love of his life AND all of his friends in one fell swoop.
  • Now the plan is that, instead of letting Amber think she's just a pawn, they're going to tell her due to the problems, she's out this week.
  • That ought to go over really well, don'tcha think?

Big Brother 16: Live Feeds Sunday night into Monday - July 28

Has he grown a devil horn?

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of NO Singing:
  • Hayden's thrilled that Amber will be going out and he has a hand in it. He's very upset that Amber told Victoria she's going home.
  • Of course, Hayden told Victoria when he won the veto that he would save her.
  • Caleb thinks it's all his doing, even to the point of Hayden using the veto.
  • Victoria suggested to Frankie that he might put Amber on the block if the veto is used.
  • Heh.
  • They had a nice memorial service led by Jocasta in church robes with her bible.
  • Each of them stood up and said nice words to Frankie and Derrick, some with tears in their eyes.
  • It was a nice and touching service for them over the loss of their grandfathers.
  • Back to the game ...
  • Frankie and Cody talked about Zach being so unpredictable and how he might harm their own games with his mouth.
  • Caleb, whose career will surely take off with big things due to BB, can also break dance.
  • He did a few moves and he seems to know a bit of what he's doing. But that isn't a surprise for me as he seems more like a street dude Eminem type than any sort of cowboy.
  • Christine is still worried about Donny. Caleb eased her fears by telling her Donny could never win an HoH.
  • Um, I bet he could!
  • Don't ever give Hayden a toy knife.
  • He went around acting like some kind of robot monster attacking with it.
  • It brought back memories of BB2 and Justin/Krista.
  • However, Hayden was truly harmless.
  • The PoV meeting will be later today.

Bug Brother 16: Live Feeds Sunday into the evening - July 27

The lights must remain on

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Caleb the Fool on the Hill:
  • Just a side note to start with -- with all the manscaping going on in the house, Zach looks foolish with a bare chest and bushes growing under his arms. I'm jus' sayin' ...
  • Caleb, obviously still pining for his unrequited love, wants to confront Zach to make sure Zach was telling him the truth about Amber using him.
  • Frankie, obviously still thinking America's Team argument at the PoV ceremony mission, thinks it's a better idea to wait until tomorrow.
  • Frankie told Zach that Caleb wants to talk to Cody to see if Zach is telling him the truth.
  • For someone who's "over her," he's certainly all over her!
  • Donny advised Jocasta to just lay low for the day and that there was no sense talking game with anyone except perhaps Hayden.
  • Donny is a bit worried that Frankie might name him as the re-nomination. Derrick assured him that Team America is too important.
  • They figure Amber is the only one likely to argue with Zach as well as their target anyway.
  • Derrick, whom we know has a distrust of Donny, told Donny that he trusts him more than he trusts Frankie in the long term. Hmmm.
  • Of course, we do know that he trusts Cody more than he trusts either Donny or Frankie.
  • Will Derrick's mojo work on someone like Donny? It works on all the others!
  • When talking to Derrick, Donny told him that he (Donny) isn't working with Jocasta when Derrick asked about possibly working with her. Donny said that right now he's focusing only on the Team America alliance.
  • When talking about who's more of a threat -- Amber or Caleb -- they both think Amber. Donny said, "Amber is actually the brains of two in the house. Caleb can't think for himself."
  • Heehee.
  • I hope the boy gets some therapy once he gets out of the house!
  • It was Photo Booth Funday Sunday.
  • Um. Okay.
  • Caleb has taken the ball (seeds planted by Zach) and run with it, going off on an Amber obsessed bitterfest for most of the day.
  • He went around confirming the rumors with everyone.
  • He told Jocasta the only ones who didn't say Amber was using him were her and Donny.
  • Jocasta said she doesn't get involved in that stuff.
  • Nicole and Donny talked about the backdoor Amber plan. Donny said it's a shame Frankie would get the blood on his hands and can't even vote this week.
  • I say it's about time someone got bloody hands in there!
  • Frankie wanted to nominate the weak players so he could be HoH. Now he's stuck with it.
  • Zach practiced his nomination speech. Derrick and Frankie egged him on as it should start the argument that would fulfill their mission.
  • Christine reported back to Zach that she advised Amber not to talk to Caleb (as they had asked her to do).
  • Amber thinks Christine is being a good friend.
  • Now, all of a sudden, it's CALEB'S idea to get Amber nominated as the re-nom.
  • Oh my gosh.
  • Who would have thought Caleb could have come up with such a plan?
  • Caleb told Cody not only that he arranged the whole thing, but it's all strategical and not personal.
  • I have no words.
  • I can just roll my eyes.
  • @@
  • Frankie told Donny that he won't be putting him on the block tomorrow and that he too wants to take Team America as far as possible.
  • Frankie told Donny also to say as far as he knows, Hayden won't be using the veto if Amber asks.
  • Hayden told Frankie he's been telling everyone he hasn't decided whether to use it or not yet.
  • This should all come to a crescendo tomorrow in the PoV meeting. Everyone in the house is in on the plan except Jocasta, Amber and Caleb. Victoria knows that Hayden plans to save her with the veto and told Frankie she'd like to see Amber backdoored. So, while she's not really aware of the entire plan, she'll be in on it once it goes down.
  • Woot.

Thinking ...

Talking Amber and Caleb

Playing the best game so far

Not deserving of the Rutgers sweatshirt!

Zach. What can you say?

Both Frankie and Zach want to target Amber. But, of course, it will be Zach who has to do the dirty work.

Frankie got a Justin Bieber CD in his basket. Oh wow.

Christine picks at her toes as she refuses to throw the PoV comp for Zankie.

Due to losing a bet, Amber is stuck going on a "date" with Stalker Creep Caleb.

Neither wants to nominate Donny. Frankie is thinking Jocasta and possibly Victoria. Zach really wants to nominate Christine because he doesn't think she's carrying her weight in the alliance. He questions Nicole. She claims she and Christine are just friends.

Christine denies being in an alliance to Nicole.

Cody and Derrick solidify their final two pact and name themselves the Hitmen.

Donny gets the TA mission -- start an argument between two people at either the PoV or Nominations ceremonies. Since Zach wants to call out Christine in nominations, they think they're going to go with that.

Amber tries to work things out with Zach. Ain't gonna work.

Nominations - Frankie will nominate two weak players so they'll lose and he'll remain HoH. Zach is a wild card. Frankie nominates Jocasta and Victoria because it's 100% strategic, no blood on hands. Zach nominates Christine and Nicole. Christine because she's a floater. Nicole Froot Loop dingus, I bet you didn't see this coming.

TA mission failed.

Battle of the Block -- Caleb hosts, all set up like a wedding scene. Build a giant wedding cake, must stand on top with your partner three seconds to win. Christine and Nicole are nailing it, the other two built a mess.

Nicole and Christine win! Zach is dethroned. Jocasta and Victoria remain on the block and Frankie remains the sole HoH.

Big Brother 16: Live Feeds Saturday night into Sunday - July 27

Caleb alone with his Slinky

I bet Caleb named his Slinky "Amber" and sleeps with her. In turn, she will give him the unconditional love and adoration he so deserves.

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Whirling Dervishes:
  • Victoria tried telling Zach that he needs to be a bit less mean. After all, according to her, "If you die tomorrow, you don't want to be remembered for yelling at women."
  • But, to Zach, the world is a joke. While he's entertaining to watch as he's so unpredictably hyper and all over the place, he would drive me crazy in real life.
  • And, his silly abrupt clap-clap during voting is annoying me. Make him stop.
  • Frankie and Derrick discussed the replacement nom for when Hayden takes Victoria off the block. Their target is Amber. But they want to smooth it over with Caleb first. If he's cool with it after they tell him she's been stringing him along (!!!), she'll be the one. If he says no to Amber going up, he will go on the block and go home. 
  • They didn't talk about telling him that last part.
  • Frankie said they can't put Donny up because of Team America.
  • Derrick agrees but not with any enthusiasm. He thinks Donny plans on targeting him.
  • Yep, Donny just might do that someday if he gets power. Donny is the only one really seeing what a fantastic game Derrick is playing and that, if Derrick makes it to the end, he'd win hands down against ANYONE in the house.
  • They're scared they might fail the latest TA mission. Frankie's been working on Zach for a PoV meeting kerfuffle, but we'll see. 
  • Frankie told Christine about his backdoor Amber plan. She's totally down with it.
  • Christine would actually prefer that Donny or Jocasta go, though. She thinks they're more dangerous to her own game.
  • Me? I'd prefer Christine go. I can't keep watching her mess with her toes then bite her nails. EW!
  • Frankie and Derrick planned a Sunday morning memorial service for both of their grandfathers.
  • Nicole continues to get upset that Victoria has clutched onto Hayden and hangs all over him.
  • Jocasta has miraculously cured from her severe illness ... again.
  • Derrick is still working wonders. He's giving sound advice to just about everyone in the house and acting like he cares about their game. He's toned it down a bit since he got the news about his grandfather. That will be the only thing which is hurting his gameplay -- he's getting a bit too cocky and trying to rule the world.
  • Or, if Donny wins HoH and nominates Derrick.
  • Those are about the only two things which could stop him in the game.
  • Derrick's latest undercover mission (NOT Team America)? Convince Caleb he wants Amber backdoored out of the house.
  • Oh my gosh ... could he be doing it?
  • Zach told Hayden that they're making Caleb hate/mad at Amber so he'll be with the backdoor plan.
  • "She'll come crawling back to me once she's out of the house," says Caleb. "Or Cody."
  • Heh. I'd say between the two, it would be Cody. But I don't think Cody is really interested in doing anything other than flirting with her and being a friend.
  • Caleb claims at home he has "hoes hanging all over him."
  • I have a bit to say to that -- He's from a really small town, I bet they're garden hoes he needs to till the earth. And, second, how does he ever think any classy or even nice woman would ever be interested in him? I bet his mother is really proud. Yeah.
  • They've done it.
  • He's still in love with Amber, but he hates her, too.
  • He's totally bought the hook, line and sinker.
  • He stayed up long after all the others went to bed mumbling to himself about "Beast Mode Cowboy."
  • Of course, the PoV ceremony isn't until tomorrow.
  • Things could change by then.
  • And, they might have to go with Plan B -- put CALEB on the block!
  • Either way, this week should be interesting.
  • Heck, I might even have an entertaining brouhaha or two to watch!
