Big Brother 16: Season Finale Blog Party

UPDATE -- Backyard live interviews at this link.



About a week after it should have ended, it's finally ending! While us live feed watchers know who won the first two parts of the final HoH competition, they haven't even aired the end of the first part on the show itself yet. Oy. It seems like so long ago! They're going to have to cram a lot into tonight's show.

Before this gets too long, I'd like to thank all of my friends and folks in the blog community here. Thank you for your participation! Without you, this blog would be just me rambling on to myself with a cat draped over my shoulder! I also want to thank those who donated to the blog via the Paypal link on the sidebar. Every donation is appreciated -- thank you all so much!

The only remaining people in the blog pool as we head into tonight with the final three hamsters are:
Cody - Delee, Nickelpeed, WolfpackRed, Nell the Southern Belle, Sally in Indiana
Derrick - Ed in Ohio, Jessica UNderwood, Marlo, Stormy, Erinkate
Victoria - Dr_Celine, ORKMommy, Sharon N, Faye
I was out of the pool long ago with PaoPao.

In my opinion, from watching the live feeds and the shows, posting live feeds reports and all but living with these hamsters ... I'd like to see Derrick Levasseur win it all. I personally picked him as my favorite for the win back when I first introduced the cast pre-season. I wrote, "Derrick Levasseur might be the brains of this operation." And, he certainly lived up to it. Far from the most exciting hamster ever, he played hands-down the best mind game ever on the show -- convincing everybody he cares (and actually seems to) about them, manipulating others, getting folks who caught onto his puppetmaster ways out, yet still remaining off the block for the entire season. If he doesn't win, I'll be very surprised.

Cody Calafiore played a decent game and is definitely a decent guy despite letting Christine touch and pet him all the time. But, other than winning competitions and teaming up with Derrick, sometimes there was no "there" there with Cody. Derrick made most of his decisions for him, often (like he tended to do with others) making Cody think they were his own decisions. Instead, that old reality blood went on his hands more than Derrick's. I honestly think he realized that with the Caleb eviction and that's why he brought up the Hitmen reveal. He wouldn't be a totally undeserving winner, but Derrick is definitely better at the game.

Then there's Victoria Rafaeli, probably one of the most surprising final three hamsters ever. Although she was definitely brought all the way by Derrick and was often totally clueless, sucked in competitions, chomped her food ... she's in the final three. But, listen folks ... she worked her apparent life strategy as game strategy. It's been said that she is used to people doing for her. Well, Derrick did for her and got her to the final three. Will it be enough to get her to the final two? And, if she makes it to the final two, will the Bomb Squadders on the jury keep their promise to vote for her to win in spite?

It all happens now ... on Big Brother.

Okay, that was my Julie Chen impersonation. As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. But, as you all must know by now, the party is in the comments area. Come join in with us! Let's CRUSH this finale!

Recap, recap ... onto the first part of the final HoH comp. Surprise, surprise ... Victoria is out first. Derrick and Cody talk about what they're going to do. The original plan of theirs was to have Cody win this physical one, Derrick to take on the mental comp with Victoria. Derrick goes down. Cody wins part one.

Part two is Egyptian theme. They have to scale a wall, step on stones and place faces in order of eviction and who was with them on the block. Derrick went first and seemed to do well. Now Victoria is up. She's having trouble going up and down the wall.

Derrick's time: 15:29
Victoria's time: 30:03

Derrick CRUSHED that one. Now Victoria is talking about her final two deal with Derrick.

Dr. Will leads the jury roundtable. They think that Caleb will be next. Nicole thinks Cody because he did nothing through the game. Huh. They're talking Derrick. They are impressed with him. He's a master manipulator. They Cody is smart. Hayden thinks Victoria is dumbing down for the house. Zach thinks she IS dumb. Jocasta says she will vote for her. So will Caleb.

Final part of the final HoH comp -- Derrick and Cody. How well they know the jury -- Scales of Just Us -- typical how the juror completed a statement. 8 questions.

Derrick 1, Cody 0
Derrick 2, Cody 1
Derrick 3, Cody 2
Derrick 3, Cody 3
Derrick 4, Cody 3
Derrick 4, Cody 4
Derrick 4, Cody 4
Derrick 4, Cody 4

Tiebreaker question. In seconds, how long was part one of the final HoH comp from starting horn to when Cody won.

Their answers were close, but CODY wins the final HoH!

Caleb is going to be ticked. Julie just announced that Frankie will be on The Talk tomorrow.

Eviction time! Cody evicts Victoria, sticks with his fellow Hitman.

Bitter jury interrogation coming!

Christine -- Derrick, denied responsibility for sending us home. Yes, I did. Part of my strategy to stay behind the scenes.

Frankie -- Derrick is puppermaster, Cody is puppet. Cody says played a huge social game. Played as good as Derrick.

Caleb -- My boy Derrick, used your family to manipulate us. Cross the line? Never used them, think the world of them.

Hayden -- Cody ... biggest strategic move you made personally. Claims responsibilty for Zach going out.

Nicole -- Why do you deserve to win over Cody? Derrick -- never on the block.

Donny -- Cody, why win over Derrick? Cody -- social game, related info to Derrick.

Victoria -- Loyal to Hitmen over me? Friends always, but couldn't betray Cody's loyalty.

The speeches:
Cody -- Hurt by puppet monicker, sent them out, brings us to final two.
Derrick -- Best social game I could play, never nominated, won four HoHs.

Time to vote --
Jocasta -- Fake praying works.
Hayden -- Person who will give me best pedicab tip
Zach -- RI is where my heart's at.
Donny -- Hate I left my Skittles at home.
Nicole -- Person who I think played best
Christine -- Not bitter, hard decision, going with gut
Frankie -- You look hot, but I've had better to Cody, best win
Caleb -- Both welcome where you are by BS, best game winner
Victoria -- The one who remained loyal to me since day one.

It sounds like a landslide for Derrick to me, but it's not being announced yet. Next up are the earlier evicted hamsters and the reveal of secrets of the summer.

Joey now has pink hair.

Tea America reveal. Lots of fun!

Then Derrick reveals his real job and they show the casting tape in which he said he'd use his undercover police strategy as strategy in the game.

The jury's votes:
Jocasta -- Cody
Hayden -- Derrick
Zach -- Derrick
Donny -- Cody
Nicole -- Derrick
Christine -- Derrick
Frankie -- Derrick

DERRICK WINS! As I thought he should since the season started!

Caleb and Victoria also voted for Derrick, 7-2 was the final landslide.

Over 10 million votes for favorite -- Zach, Nicole and Donny were the top three. More than 5 million votes for DONNY! Woot!

Derrick is coming on The Talk tomorrow, too.

Not the most exciting season, but I'm very pleased with how it ended.

Derrick beats Cody AT LEAST 7-2

Becky said...

Hey, BB watchers! I had to read Jackie's comments before coming over. Hand me a Margarita, Petals.

JonMD1267 said...

Cheryl in NC said...

Anon...I'm calling 8-1 Derrick

anonymouse said...

And go ZachAttackz

monty924 said...

July looks lurvely tonight... oops

JonMD1267 said...

Look at Julie working that stage lol

anonymouse said...

But it will be Donny huge

Petals said...

*Styx in the background, in honor of Monty's birthday*

Julie took the gloves off this season- she's been downright sassy! Love it!

Cheryl in NC said...

Delusional Vic.....bless her heart

anonymouse said...

Everyone but Donny and Caleb.

Petals said...

*sliding Becky a margarita*

These are "top shelf" , Patron!

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for putting up with those houseguests all season.

JonMD1267 said...

Well dear we can not feel are ears after a summer of you lol

monty924 said...

YAY, Styx!!! Thanks, pal xoxo

Ed in Ohio said...

Vickys hair prolly weighed her down

Nickelpeed said...

Why Victoria...you've done nothing to be there...why start now? LOL


Penny

Petals said...

Sadly, Vic truly does believe she has "worked hard" to be where she is now.

Petals said...

yw, pal

Petals said...

I love their pact. Sure, it makes the ending kinda boring, but I do like a good pact.

monty924 said...

^5 Ed :))

monty924 said...

He smoked her on it in half the time

Cheryl in NC said...

Poor Vic...she thinks she was his ally

Becky said...

Victoria is such a dreamer!

monty924 said...

Awww, you don't see many pics of Will and (What's her name again from the other reality love show). Nice looking couple.

Rochelle said...

Ed in Ohio said...
Vickys hair prolly weighed her down

Hah!

Petals said...

Oh yeah - I left my sleeping bag behind the Survivor fridge...thanks, I'll need it.

Finale birthday slumber party, whoohoo

Becky said...

Yeah, Petals, she took the gloves off -- but then they gave Frankie a pass so he didn't get his boos.

Nickelpeed said...

Loyalty is very important. It's hard to put your destiny in someone else's hands, though. I don't blame Derrick for wanting to win this, so he wouldn't have to do 3 challenges in a row.

Penny

anonymouse said...

7-2 Cheryl. Think he loses Donny and Caleb.

Nickelpeed said...

These commercials get me. Yes, really? As if an young thin actress/model really eats ice cream like that. LOL

lynn1 said...

Monty you must be super special to get Survivor debut and BB16 finale for a birthday gift

monty924 said...

Some little birdie told me all the cabs in Plainfield are on strike tonight so if you don't have a DD, it's Jackie's floor but I've got Vincent called as my cuddle buddy.

Cheryl in NC said...

Need a refill....Jon...thanks:-)

JonMD1267 said...

He references the most week Raiders movie.

JonMD1267 said...

On it Cheryl :)

monty924 said...

I know, right, Lynn? Made the day better :))

JonMD1267 said...

We know Derrick, we know.

JonMD1267 said...

If he goes in to hot and cocky that might tick them off.

Rochelle said...

oy the voice!

Nickelpeed said...

I think it's going to be a very close vote if it's Cody and Derrick. If the jury votes on emotion, Cody could win this. If they vote on who really played the best game, they will vote Derrick.

However, who will they take to the final? Each of them could be thinking if they take Victoria, they are guaranteed a win. It will be interesting to see how loyal each are.

Rochelle said...

SQUIRREL!

Marybeth said...

No wonder she lost, there is no way she could do this.

Ed in Ohio said...

She's not a climber!!

Rochelle said...

lynn1 said...
Monty you must be super special to get Survivor debut and BB16 finale for a birthday gift


Good point!!! :)

monty924 said...

I could have never done that

David said...

<--- Puts a little cat-nip on shrit to steal cuddle-buddy.

Thank you Jackie for putting up with all of us this summer. Sorry about wearing out your fridge. =) Just too many of us constantly opening and closing it.

JonMD1267 said...

Victoria 4.5 hours lol

monty924 said...

Smoked her, but we already knew that! ;-)

Cheryl in NC said...

Lol Jon

Ed in Ohio said...

Sorry Vic your 'summer' ends tonite

Becky said...

I hope Donny wins AF.

JonMD1267 said...

Love Cody playing for 2nd place.

Good good. I love seeing the jury.

Nichols just told you, costs not winning.

Cheryl in NC said...

Hey hey bartender

Nickelpeed said...

Oh shut up, Frankie. Just shut up.

monty924 said...

Where's Jocasta's bowtie?

Petals said...

Drink!!

Petals said...

Monty - Will's wife's name is Erin (she was on a dating show)

And he looks terrible, too much Botox (and I am a FAN of Botox)

monty924 said...

Two people did, BMC. Danielle and Jason BB3

JonMD1267 said...

Donny keeping it real ha

Nickelpeed said...

Uh oh, very bitter.

Cheryl in NC said...

Bitter party of 6

anonymouse said...

Donny Jacista and Caleb are No on Derrick.

Petals said...

Hey - when do you guys think that Derrick will reveal his actual job?

Ed in Ohio said...

They should have shown more of the jury during season!

Nickelpeed said...

Well, we know who crusty will vote for.

It's funny they consider Cody a better player. Interesting.

Anonymous said...

Oh I'm really worried Derrick is going to lose after all his hard work. Heard dat!

monty924 said...

Yes, ERIN

Thanks Petals

JonMD1267 said...

lol summer camp

Ed in Ohio said...

Petals, Derrick? if he's smart AFTER they vote

JonMD1267 said...

Love Zach

anonymouse said...

And in glad I voted for Zach and not Donny

Anonymous said...

Thanks Jackie for hosting both blog parties tonight. I am glad the Twin lost on survivor. I am hoping that Derrick wins Big Brother.

Glenn

Nickelpeed said...

I do think Jocasta is wrong about Derrick praying with her just to win her over.

Yikes, these guys are bitter, aren't they?

Petals said...

Yeah, Ed.

monty924 said...

I love you, Dr. Will <3

Petals said...

the jury looks sunburnt, like they spent the day at the beach.

TEAM ZONNY

They also edit that to make it look close. Two minutes out of 45 minute conversation.

Ed in Ohio said...

CHENBOT, your hair looks much better DOWN!

jennifer said...

Victoria was just needed as a pawn....that's not a really game play... Just luck that she was needed...

Becky said...

Nickelpeed said... Oh shut up, Frankie. Just shut up.

Thank you for saying it for me, Penny.

Anonymous said...

man I hope that was a negative edit....I'm worried about Derrick now....he will never convince 1 of those egos that HE was responsible for changing their minds

anonymouse said...

As bitter as Donny is, I am glad I voted for Zach and not Donny.

lynn1 said...

I am really disappointed in the bitter sore loser attitude the jury is showing. Actually only Zack and crusty are seeming to get it

Kathy said...

It's obvious how bitter Frankie and Caleb are. They are not going to vote for the right reasons.

jennifer said...

I guess it really doesn't matter how you get to the end.... Just that one gets there... My vote would still go to Derrick.

Petals said...

So do we think that the Grande corporation pounded the votes? I hope not, but it wouldn't surprise me.

Monty - did you have a good birthday?

monty924 said...

Here we GOOOOOO

monty924 said...

Vic's dress looks like a Las Vegas showgirl's dress. Pretty, I'm not hating just saying

jennifer said...

Sadly the jury forgets that it is a game.... If they were in the finals, I'm sure they would sing another tune

Ed in Ohio said...

Wait til Beast Mode sees Amber!!

DRINK!

Petals said...

Yeah, Kathy - I agree. Frankie & Caleb are choking on the bitter.

Petals said...

OOOO, they just showed the pre-view here of BB, Donny getting his beard trimmed. =)

Gooooo Donny for AFP.

monty924 said...

Always a crap shoot

Nickelpeed said...

This is going to be a close one. Wow.

I hope derrick takes Victoria.

refresher of the drinking rules:

Take 1 drink: if someone says "Beastmode"
Take 2 drinks if someone says "Competition Beast"
Take 3 drinks if someone mentions Ariana Grande, or they show her onscreen
Do a Vodka shot if someone says "Froot Loop Dingus"
Finish your enture drinks if Frankie or Christine gets "boooooed"

The entire season lol

My bad I thought that was Victoria lol

Pot luck

Derrick

Nickelpeed said...

Come on Cody, he's my pool pick. LOL

Petals said...

Jon - I kinda forced the job of "bartender" on you ... are you OK with it?
And...is the champagne chilled?

JonMD1267 said...

Aww snap

anonymouse said...

Wow

monty924 said...

Well, Derrick just got his dream come true. He doesn't have to evict victoria

Nickelpeed said...

Oh wow! He could evict Derrick. Will he? Hopefully, he'll stay loyal.

JonMD1267 said...

Petals, please I don't mind and that way I can take a nip now and then lol

Anonymous said...

wow Cody might have this

Anonymous said...

Now I think cody might win.

Nickelpeed said...

Don't get me wrong, Derrick really does deserve to win.

Ed in Ohio said...

3 in a row for Cody!! This could be close!!

Cheryl in NC said...

Wow....Cody might just win this thing
Winning the last hoh is always plus......Jordan...anyone??

anonymouse said...

He beats Victoria. If he has the balks to evict derrick he deserves it.

Thank you Jackie for another season of great blogging and keeping us up to date on the hamsters!

Becky said...

Petals, love the rules.

anonymouse said...

But I bet he doesn't

monty924 said...

'Depends' over at the bar for when Cody takes Victoria over Derrick, LOL. It would be funny and I would totally pee my pants.

Won't happed but it would be funny

Anonymous said...

He will take Derrick only because if he wins he would rather have Derrick have 50K instead of Vic.

Becky said...

Derrick does deserve the win. I am afraid that Cody will not take him.

anonymouse said...

Derrick would vote for Victoria.

jennifer said...

Thanks Jackie, for another great season... Can't wait till next summer:)

Ed in Ohio said...

Expect the Un-expected?

Probably Not...but maybe?!

Aww, Tenley looked shell shocked in that crowd. Bless her heart <3

Grabbing my 'Depends' back. Whew!!!

Good job Hitmen!!!

Becky said...

I see what someone said about the dress.

Nickelpeed said...

Good man. Stayed Loyal. We'll now see what the jury thinks. It's all up to them. Could be very equal. This is going to be a very close vote.

Penny

Cheryl in NC said...

Gets it's being crushed...lol
Cody might pull this out...unless derricks mist is stroooong

Ed in Ohio said...

That was quick! Not much to talk about!!

Anonymous said...

I guess Arianna Grande will fly to NYC for SNL after the show.

lynn1 said...

I could't wait any longer I have Kir Royales ( Champagne with a splash of Creme de Cassis) if anyone wants some

Becky said...

But you did float to the end, Vic. I am so glad Cody took Derrick. I think there were enough idiot, bitter jury members that would have given it to Victoria. What is actually sad is she thinks she played a good game.

JonMD1267 said...

Poor Amber, that flame has not died out she will have to leave the country.

monty924 said...

Jon's taking a 'nip' break. Slide me another Margarita bartender Petals :)))

WolfpackRed said...

Hard to believe I have a hamster in the final two. Even still, Derrick earned this one.

lynn1 said...

I want Derrick to win but I think the bitter jury will vote for Cody. I think derrick played a much better game

Susan in MA said...

I'm on pins and needles!

anonymouse said...

I think in the end only the bitters vote for Cody. That's Donny Jacosta and Caleb. 6-3 derrick.

Hope that's not just wishful thinking.

JonMD1267 said...

Monty at this stage of the game I don't have to hide my drinking lol

Lake of game play has made this a disappointing season overall, so I kind of expect it to end that way and have Cody win..no logic

monty924 said...

I think it will be more like 7-2 or 8-1 and Derrick will win. DOnny had a little twinkle in his eye that led me to believe they were making it interesting for the camera that night. Derrick's got this!

JonMD1267 said...

Not much clapping for Christine/Frankie lol

lynn1 said...

All these bitter jurors talking about what they would have done IF they had made it to the end reminds me a saying my dear dad use to say IF goose crap was jelly we would eat it on toast

Jon..drink with me:-)

Petals said...

*drinking* just cuz

Petals said...

Jon - I noticed that, too! Or Caleb! LOL
