Hey kids, I’m back!!! I won’t bore you with the details, but I greatly enjoyed my days away from this mess of a Big Brother season.
It’s not just my little birthday vacation that has me invigorated tonight, though. No, tonight is the night where we are finally rid of the season’s biggest nightmare. It’s going to be glorious to see this person’s entitled ass walk out the door.
In case you’re not aware, this is not actually a live eviction. It was recorded last night in real time, as if it was really live. Let’s clear up why this happened. It’s not to protect Frankie. For almost ten years, the reduction from five to four players has been pre-taped. The reason is simple. After this episode’s HOH competition, they have a veto AND the first part of the finale comps to set up. It is almost impossible to do this in 24 hours. This extra day allowed them to film the veto comp today to air on tomorrow’s episode. Got it?
So let’s get going where we left off on Sunday night with Caleb’s nominations of Victoria and...yes, Frankie!!! Caleb explains that while he loves Frankie, this is a game and he has to “knock him out” before he “swings at me”. Frankie tells Caleb that it was a “good speech”, but says in the diary room that he’s “completely shocked...I feel totally blindsided”. Victoria hugs Caleb, who tells her she “has a heart of gold”. She’s suddenly a bit cocky, bragging in the diary room that she’s going to make it to the final four. Derrick, of course, is pretty proud of how he put that scene together. “Now we have to win the veto, and we can send Frankie packing.”
Caleb now walks into the bathroom and asks Frankie if he hates him. Frankie replies that he just doesn’t understand why he was nominated, and Caleb (stupidly) explains that after looking at all of the scenarios this was his best move. Cody has been on the block for a full week, while Derrick hasn’t been able to play in either of the two HOH competitions. “I didn’t feel it was fair to put him up there.” Frankie counters that by saying that Derrick has never been nominated all season, and I must say that’s a fair arguement. Caleb goes on to say that he needs to win the veto, and that Derrick will then be put up so Victoria goes home.
Meanwhile, Derrick and Cody are talking about the importance of the upcoming veto competition. Derrick says if they win, then the two of them will be the final two. Cody wants to keep the plan to boot Frankie quiet from not only him but Caleb. Derrick then walks out, and Cody begins pumping himself up. “I have to fucking win veto!”
Frankie is now seen playing pool with Caleb. He tells Caleb that he knows he’s being tested by the nomination, and Caleb says that’s not the case. “I have no reason to test you.” Frankie then asks if there’s another reason for his being nominated, and dumb Caleb then tells him about his (or Derrick’s) worry that he would pull down Victoria and put one of the boys up. “I could have done that last week”, Frankie squeals. Caleb then adds that this was the scenario brought up, and Frankie wants to know how this happened. “Just me, Derrick, and Cody talking. Who do we think would make a big move like that, and you were the one we thought would do it.” Dumb Caleb. Dumb Caleb.
Frankie then goes on a pity party about how he’s done so much for them. As Caleb continues on about how it was a “spur of the moment” decision, Cody walks out. Caleb fills him in, and Cody is pissed. “If you want to make a big move, you don’t run and tell the person after you do it”, he says in the diary room. “If Frankie manages to pull himself down, he’s going to be gunning for all of us.” Derrick also joins them, and he’s also pissed as he would definitely be going up if Frankie wins the veto. “Thanks, Caleb.” Derrick does his best damage control as Frankie goes on about how he’s “proven himself...I’ve been nothing but loyal and honest”.
Back inside, Frankie makes a show at using a flour tortilla to study the faces on the memory wall for the upcoming “morph” veto comp. Derrick explains that because it’s a rewind week, they know exactly what to expect and can prep for it. Frankie knows he’s the target, so his “entire game is on this veto comp”. Since he won last week, he’s certain to win again. We then hear the other boys talk about how they have to win before we go to commercials. Meanwhile, Victoria looks at a bag of bread.
It’s obviously now time for that moment of truth. There’s really no need to go through everything that happened, especially the awful play by play, so let’s just go to the conclusion. Cody goes first, and his time is 2:21. Caleb has difficulties, though, because he forgot to turn off some names. Victoria starts off well, but then has trouble (as expected). It’s now Frankie’s turn, and he becomes frazzled on the second morph. His time then runs out, and he says “I’m wrecked”. Derrick is the last one up, and he believes that it’s Frankie that has the low time. He races through them, but runs out of time. He’s now worried.
Everybody heads out, and Derrick finds out that Cody won “the biggest comp of the summer”. Aren’t they all? Frankie knows he’s in trouble, but still has hope that the boys will “keep to their word”. Will they?
After more commercials, it’s time for the veto meeting. Yes, this is anti-climatic, despite some rhetoric from Frankie. Cody keeps them the same. Big surprise. Frankie’s not happy, but he’s “going to preach loyalty the rest of the week. Are you going to choose greed, or are you going to choose honor? The choice is yours. You will be judged” WTF?
Frankie is now shown playing pool with Cody, and says he’ll “never make the mistake of keeping (Caleb) safe again”. What Caleb did was just not cool. Derrick joins them, and asks when they believe Caleb is going to decide to keep Victoria. In the diary room, Frankie says that he’s going to convince the two boys that his target is now Caleb. They simply agree to whatever he says, and we head to more commercials.
Here we go with that moment we’ve been waiting for all season! Victoria gets the first final plea, and she says nothing of interest. Frankie dramatically thanks his family, especially his awful famous sister, before becoming even more dramatic about how he knew he’d be a “huge target”. Sorry, i can’t go on any longer with this. Let’s just get to the vote.
Cody is the first vote, and we know he votes to evict Frankie, as does Derrick. As the WWE yells whenever Daniel Bryan enters the ring - “YES! YES! YES! YES!”
Julie announces the great news, and Frankie demands that they all “line up for speeches”. He returns the king chess pieces to Caleb, tells Victoria to “please try to win something”, instructs Derrick to “please don’t kill my fish”, and tells Cody that “I’ve had better”. He says that he loves them all, and is out the door with a handful of glitter. Ugh, that’s reserved for Colette Lala.
Time to fast forward, as I can’t endure an interview with Julie. Seriously, the little I heard was complete bullshit.
Ok, let’s get to the HOH competition. It’s the “before/after” comp, where they have to step ahead or back depending on the answer. There are seven questions, and the person with the most correct wins. Derrick almost misses the second question, but quickly corrects himself. He then falls behind on the third question, but Victoria gets the fifth question wrong. She also gets the sixth question wrong. For the last question, Derrick is one point behind Cody, who gets this one wrong. It’s now tied, and we get a tie-breaker!
The tie-breaker is a number, and it’s the number of seconds it took for the luxury competition. Derrick guess 420, while Cody slowly picks 680. The answer was 462, which makes Derrick the new HOH!!!
After a little bit of nonsense from Julie, the episode ends. We’ll be back tomorrow with another eviction. Until then, let us know what you thought about tonight’s episode! Are you happy Frankie’s gone? Well, that’s all I really want to know about, but you can talk about anything!
