Big Brother 16: Live Feeds into Sunday with a brouhaha! - August 10

Zach's mouth starts it all

Yep, it was another entertaining night on the live feeds! About time, I say! Of course, in real life I don't like drama, kerfuffles and brouhahas (at least not if I'm involved!). But this is Big Brother. I want entertainment. Watching a bunch of guys playing pool or chess is NOT entertainment. Here's the skinny on the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Lies and Betrayals:
  • They had gotten over the Frankie thing although he's likely to be targeted once they get down to their inner circle.
  • This latest is pretty much all on Zach and his mouth.
  • He has told Nicole and others everything that has happened so far, as we know.
  • Well, when he told Victoria, he told her that Derrick was in an alliance with Christine.
  • She freaked as Derrick is the only person in the house she trusted. 
  • Victoria went to Nicole crying and Nicole tried to comfort her.
  • Zach went to Derrick, told him that Victoria was freaking out and he told Derrick that NICOLE told Victoria that he (Derrick) has an alliance with Christine.
  • It went from a drama-laden kerfuffle to a full-blown BROUHAHA!
  • Again, no fisticuffs.
  • No thrown chairs, either.
  • Sigh.
  • Derrick talked to both Victoria and Nicole separately and then together. Nicole said she didn't tell Victoria it and Victoria said it was Zach.
  • So Derrick called in Zach.
  • Zach admitted that he lied about Nicole telling Victoria about the Christine alliance.
  • He got all defensive and started shouting once again that he's disgusting, a liar, they need to vote him out next week.
  • Derrick once again did the amazing Derrick people skillz on 'em all, making each one of them thinking they have value in the game and, after all, it's just a game.
  • Then Frankie got involved.
  • And then ... a new BROUHAHA (well, rehashed one from last night) with Frankie and Zach.
  • Again, Derrick did his thing and smoothed all the rough edges.
  • Dang. I think I want Derrick on my city's police department. His interrogation skills are truly outstanding and special. In one of my past careers, I was trained for investigations and interrogations and he's doing so much of what I learned in my courses. He does it better than I ever did. Super kudos to him!
  • In other news, Christine seems reluctant to put Nicole on the block when Zach uses the veto.
  • Yeah, though he says he wants to go home, he'd be a fool not to save himself with the veto he won in Otev.
  • I'm thinking she'll probably put either Victoria or Nicole on the block with Donny. She still wants Frankie out, but he and Caleb are safe because of wining the BOB.
  • Alas, I think we'll see my guilty pleasure joy Donny leave this week.
  • If so, may Derrick win it all.
  • He deserves the win. Hands down, one of the best gamers ever in the house in the history of the show.
  • I only wish he had teamed up with Nicole, Hayden and Donny instead of Caleb, Frankie and Christine. But, it's worked for him so far.

Derrick calls a meeting of the mindless

Send me home! Just send me home!

It is interesting to me how everyone takes over the HOH room this season. Has Frankie allowed Christine who is the actual HOH any private time in her room?

Jackie said...

Nope. Frankie slept there last night (well, this morning) while Christine slept downstairs. If I were HOH, they'd all be locked out and it would be my private hideaway!

Ed in Ohio said...

Just a 'heads up'. CBS is televising a major golf tournament today. All 3 previous days telecasts ran past the 7PM time slot (East Coast).

It is likely it will run long again today & since 60 Minutes needs to be shown in it's entirety there's a good chance BB MAY start a little late on the East Coast.

Lili said...

I agree, Derrick is an extraordinary player AND not mean and obnoxious like Dr Will and Dan Ghesling. I mean what Dan did to that one female HG in his last season was brutal.

Derrick absolutely deserves the win. But I am hoping against hope that Donny survives and gets to be the sole HOH one time! He would put Derrick and Frankie OTB, and get out one of them or Cody and then we would have a show!

Rooting for you Donny!

Lili

PS I would rather see Victoria win this year than Frankie, that is how little respect I have for him, his many personas, his 24/7 need for attention, and the way he is playing. Christine is a total wimp for allowing Frankie to once again take over the HOH room.

After reading some of the comments yesterday I wanted to just say one thing. Years ago I watched a show called Paridise Hotel, a reality show. It was a wild one. So good. When the show was over I watched an interview with the producers about how the show was done. It was an hour long talking about this and that. They admitted to changing things up every week according to who they wanted to stay and how to stir things up. A total manipulation from the producers. They loved it. Now, watching BB>>>We say in my house>
OH, They are "Paradise Hoteling it". Shows DO set things up that you don't realize. Period. I wish I could remember the name of the producers...I think one producers name was Mike Fliece or something like that. It was on the E Channel. There is no way what has happened with Frankie has not been done on purpose.

re; 'Fakie's' BOTB win. Conspiracy Theory or Not? I guess we are all entitled to our opinions, pro or con. As viewers we can judge and opine on what we watch for ourselves.

Production by definition is to produce. And CBS has every right to 'produce' their show the way they see fit. It is their show and as it has been said "the man who holds the gold makes the rules."

CBS should take note though that many viewers are wondering about the outcome of the most recent BOTB, even a few contestants in the house themselves have stated their suspicions. The problem for CBS now may be that more often than not 'perception becomes reality'.

My Dad always told me to 'believe none of what I hear & half of what I see'. Although I don't take it to quite that extreme, I do use the adage of "taking some things with a grain of salt".

For me comparing all the previous BOTB comps to this most recent comp it did seem to 'favor' 'Fakie' and to some extent Caleb as well. It's only my own opinion but I reserve the right to have it. Was it rigged? I don't know for sure but I know I wouldn't buy a bridge in Brooklyn or swamp land in Florida. Nuff said!

I hope everyone will continue to enjoy the show after all it is only 'entertainment'!

Derrick's my Pool Pick but I'm rooting for Donny or Nicole! (anybody but 'Fakie')!!

p.s. 'Fakie' = Frankie

Its not fact, but I do not recall BB making headlines on TMZ. It could have happened and if it did it might have been Jeff/Jordon but it very rarely happens. I am more than familiar with what happens in Hollywood regarding celebrities and how it works. You know....managers, publicists, and the likes. They control the media news regarding thier client.. OF COURSE Arianna Grande and her TEAM want to be front and center in the news>>(Justin Beiber) so there you go....Her team if not FRANKIE J GRANDE'S TEAM (you know..the famous youtube MOGEUL)got thier ducks in order and sent out the word to different outlets. OMG Stop the madness. If this constant airing of mostly Frankie even on BBAD doesn't stop....just shoot me.

Ed in Ohio, You made an excellent post.

Ed in Ohio said...

Thanks Gia!

karen said...

Last night on BBAD, Frankie was talking with Zach telling him that it was in the best interest of everyone for Frankie to either win or come in second because then it would open up America's Player to the rest of the group (implying he has it on lockdown). So everyone is supposed to step aside and hand the win to Frankie for the chance to maybe get America's favorite? LMAO. If these fools buy into that crap, they all deserve to lose.

Frankie is as obnoxious as they come and I cannot stand to watch him prance around acting as though he owns the place.

Sharon N said...

Interesting that BB hasn't bothered to do the usual Wake Up for the rest of the guests today.

By now, everyone must know that I have a very suspicious mind....
By BB not waking them (as usual) it means the rest of the HGs won't be talking game while Frankie, Christine and Caleb are gone.
hmmmm

Anon 12:39, Mike Fleiss is one of the skuzziest producers there is when it comes to reality TV. Nothing he does on any of his show would surprise me. The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are prime examples. But he doesn't produce BB.

Ed, I agree 100% with your posts.

Will see everyone at the pool tonight. You can almost guarantee we will be starting late with the PGA Championship going on today. Ugh

monty924 said...

sorry Anon *12:49

Good article that delves into the convenient coincidences of Frankie's BOB win.

Enjoy,Sharon :)

Anonymous said...

monty~~I understand what you mean about M Fleiss but just because he is a creep does not mean what they did on his show does not happen on many others. Just sayin'. These shows seem to do anything for ratings. I think the Housewives Shows are just as bad. Totally scripted. Andy almost admits to it these days.

Its only my opinion (smile*) but I think this whole FRANKE J GRANDE YOUTUBE MOGUL is about as low as BB has ever gone. Just giving him all the camera time should make people wonder. JMO
:o)

Update on the golf currently on CBS. There was a long rain delay earlier and they are now a full 2 hours behind.

Because of that I believe CBS will not cover it beyond 7PM otherwise it would throw off the entire evening lineup.

My guess is the golf will be switched over to TNT or The Golf Channel @ 7PM. Just a guess!

Ed in Ohio said...

Uncartie/Sharon, Thanks for sharing the link!

Sharon N said...

uncartie, how on earth does everyone find those articles? LOL

I've been thinking about the F2 and Jury. The jury isn't supposed to receive any kind information, and no watch tv to see what's going on in the house, so...
If Frankie and Derrick end up as the F2, will we be wondering if Production messed with the Jury... just so Frankie can win the whole thing, with Derrick the runner-up?

At this point, I think Derrick deserves to win, and will win if everyone in the house continues to dislike Frankie. But will they be 'convinced' that Frankie is the mastermind?

For different reasons, BB15 and 16 have both sickened me. I love Survivor, but sincerely hope Frankie is NEVER on that show... or that it will ever go down the same road as BB.





uncartie said...

BB has changed drastically over the years and unfortunately not for the better. :(

This business of "recruiting" players is the #1 problem,imo. When the show first started players were picked from audition tapes and casting calls that were open for everyone.

A professional entertainer (Frankie) with hundreds of thousands of followers and a pop star sister who has 17 MILLION followers on Twitter has no business being on the show. It is totally unfair to the normal players that were lifelong fans like Donny & Nicole who don't have an army of fans and just want to play the game.

I'm through with BB after this year no matter who ends up winning.

Ed in Ohio said...

Well now it looks like CBS is staying with the golf coverage.

If this continues expect a BIG delay in programming and a very late start for BB.

lynn1 said...

I am curious just who is CBS' target audience for BB. Last season it had so much soft porn and racism. This year it seems to be all about getting the attention of the tweens and teeny boppers.
The year they had the Winter season of BB I had to quit watching. Towards the end of last season I didn't mind missing the show. I was so sick of Amanda & Mccray not to mention Andy.
I am about ready to hang up watching this year. I have had about all of Frankie and Christine that I can stomach.
Obviously CBS is not targeting older folks with average to above average intelligence.

Jackie said...

The blog post above is a fan made blog and just opinion, quite similar to how we all might have opinions in this matter. One thing we all seem to agree on is that Frankie shouldn't be on the show and should go away since he's already there.

David said...

At this rate SueGee on the left coast will be able to watch the program at the same time as the east coasters. This golf game is going to go on a long time. I can watch with you all when stuff runs an hour late but this is going to go longer than that. =)
This is going to mess up my Sunday DVR'ing of shows since I won't be able to tell when BB starts. Guess I need a better DVR. Mine can only do 2 channels at once.

Sharon N said...

I head ya David.
There were so many shows that I wanted to try, but it would have messed up the ones I wanted to record.
So I finally broke down and got DirecTVs Genie a few months ago.
Now I have so many shows to watch that I can't catch up!!! LOL

Anonymous said...

Yes, it is 7:42 and golf is still on-I agrees with David,----Get golf off-they still need to show 60 minutes---UGH

Sharon N said...

Only the 15th hole, so looks like it will run over into 60 Min by quite a bit.
:(

David said...

Well, it is sounding as if they may stop the Golf before long because of darkness and finish tommorrow. We will have to see.

monty924 said...

Has anyone watched Jeff's Live Chat this week with Jocasta and Hayden. I so HOPE Hayden gets back in the game before Nicole is gone. He totally has Derrick and Cody pegged. He could actually do so real damage to THAT side of the house if he were to get back in a win an HOH, or Nicole win an HOH. Fingers crossed :)))

monty924 said...

Oh, Jackie has the Party post up.

Uncartie

You read my mind regarding your post. The show has taken a bad turn. I do not get why they don't audition everyone. Instead they go out and get people that have never watched or cared to.
Most wanting fame more than anything else>>>such as Caleb.
If their intention is to grab the teenage audience then good bye and good luck. I will never listen to Arianna Grande or tune in to anything that Frankie is on. Shame Shame Shame on BB for ruining the show for the true fans.

Ok.... to start off, I agree Frankie is a sad way of bb just getting ratings. Aswell it is a definite down side as he has received cash that most other cant for two simple reasons, he is of alternative life style and his sister. ... sad... but it has not helped him in The home, but mostly hurt him. Now the whole romance between him and Zach is odd as zach is said to not be interested In men. Guess he still isnt.lol but as far as bb and the scripted or not, who cares. Most watch non reality shows and if they do sway the outcome it is of thier own decisions as they are not owned by us. If you dont like it move on. I have with many shows.... but bb has added some great twist every year and they keep my 35 yo attention. Im one of very many in this world, but if the wrong persons are targeted, with any season, I am sure many sponsors will jump ship. Thus to provide the best of prizes, contest, and rewards, they attempt to target the crowed that is desired by that years biggest sponsors. Anyone gonna stop shopping McDonald's as they target obese people? Rich folks gonna stop shopping walmart as they look for blue collard hard working people? Relax everyone. Its tv... In a short time you'll have a new show to complain about and still then, much like my opinions here, noone with half a life will care what we say. Good luck to all in finding a life with something more important than what cbs decides to do on a show they own the rights to.
