Big Brother Season 16, Episode 10 Recap (Bizarro World Version)

According to the comments section of my last recap, I’m a bit too negative in these reports. I apparently don’t like anything, and needlessly criticize everything.

These are not new complaints about my style. I’ve long understood that I’m a sarcastic creep. In response to this latest round of allegations, though, I’m going to try something new tonight. Since tonight’s episode is looking to be a bit predictable, I’m going to take a positive approach. There will be no snide comments. Nobody will be described in a negative light.

Let’s see how this works out.

The broadcast begins with the reactions to the Battle of the Block victory by Amber and Donny, and Nicole’s “disappearance”. Will she reappear? I sure hope so!

Oh there she is, back in the house in a frog costume! The house rushes in and laughs and laughs! She’s still worried, though, as she’s no longer safe this week. Hayden calls her a “cute frog”, and he’s a bit confused as usually he’s hitting on “hot girls but now I have to hit on a hot frog”. (This new method of reporting is already very tough.)

Derrick is obviously happy, and can’t wait to put up Devin. He’s just worried that Devin may play in the veto competition. Devin knows that he’s “solo in this game”, and that he’s the target. “I may be down but I’m not out.”

Frankie is now talking with Amber and Donny, telling them that they’re a great team. “It’s amazing what you can do when you combine a model with a country boy”, says Donny. “I even got a little kiss out of it. But I don’t want anybody to get the wrong idea. We’re just friends.”

Donny is still smiling on the living room couch as we now see Caleb leading Jocasta out of the diary room. She’s apparently deathly ill, and everybody rushes to see what’s wrong. She tells us about how she’s had stomach issues, and the heat of the competition made her immediately sick. We even get a toilet cam shot to show us just how sick she is. “I’m still on the block, and I guess I should be concerned about that. l’m not. I’m concerned about feeling better, and being able to walk without somebody helping me.” Poor girl. Just say no to laxatives!

Luckily, Caleb was there to save the day! We see him help tuck Jocasta into bed, and he is so concerned about her...and everybody else. “I wanted to make sure an ally, a friend, and Amber were safe, so I threw it. Hopefully, it doesn’t come around and bite me in the butt.”

Unfortunately, Caleb is also sad. We see him sitting outside in Amber’s slippers, telling her that he threw that comp for her. She didn’t want him to do that, though. “As a matter of fact, I told him not to. Not he thinks I owe him something or (he) expects something from me.”

Caleb says that she could be his date for the finale, and Amber comes right out and says no. “What else do I have to do?”, he replies. He doesn’t think she understands what he did for her, and she should appreciate that. Amber says that she doesn’t want to hurt his feelings, but she’s not going to change her mind. “If you’re not my date to the finale, I’m going to be mad”, he finally says.

Oh look, we get some more frog suit footage. Isn’t Nicole so cute? It looks SOOO much fun. Hayden even wants to kiss the cute frog, which impresses Brittany.

That was short and sweet, as we move to romantic music. Oh look, Cody is giving Amber a massage. How will this go over with Caleb? She says that Cody is “one of my favorite people”, and he replies that he gets “death stares” from Caleb whenever he gives her attention. She says that she just doesn’t think of Caleb in that manner, and is getting tired of the situation.

Caleb then walks out of the bedroom, giving that death stare as he walks by. “This is driving me crazy”, she says to Cody. “This is why I wish I had come in here at 350 pounds.” Caleb continues on up to the HOH. He’s not happy that a member of his alliance “put his hands on my home girl.” The “beast mode cowboy” is not happy with this.

The two move out to the chess board, and Caleb says that he thinks Cody has something going with Amber. “With this kid’s ego, he’ll come after me out of spite”, says Cody in the diary room. He tells Caleb that he would never go after another man’s girl, but Cody still thinks he’s automoatically Caleb’s main target.

Derrick then gives some advice to Caleb in the HOH, and is joined by Cody.They just have to get Caleb off the block, but Caleb walks out as quickly as possible. Talk turns immediately to possibly getting out Caleb instead. “This is our only shot to get him out”, says Cody. They both agree that Caleb is blinded by his obsession with Amber.

After some wonderful promotion of CBS broadcasts, it’s time for the Team America segment. Remember, the three Team America members have decided to create a rumor that Zach is related to last season’s Amanda. Donny starts off by talking to Nicole about this story, who then goes on to relate it to Christine. Derrick tells the same story to Caleb, who rushes off to tell Amber (just as Derrick planned).

The “crown jewel” is to tell Zach about the rumor, knowing that he’d rush off to tell EVERYBODY this story. He’s asked if it’s true, and after a delay he laughs and says no. He does as expected, though, and rushes around to tell everybody. He even claims that it’s true, which Nicole believes. Oh wait, there’s Victoria! She also believes the story. Good to see her on this episode!

Oh no, Jocasta is still sick. Donny is now taking care of her, leading her from the diary room back to the bedroom. “The poor thing is not going to be able to play in the veto competition”, says Donny.

It’s time to find out who is going to play, though. Because of Jocasta’s illness, there will only be five players. Derrick pulls the first chip, which belongs to Christine. Caleb then pulls out the worst possible pick - Devin! Derrick then pulls out Donny’s name “on Jocasta’s behalf”.

As you may imagine, Devin couldn’t be more pleased “to fight for my life”. Caleb says he “better bring his A game”. Derrick pulls Donny into the storage room to find out what he’d do if he won the veto. He tells Donny that his goal is to get out Devin, but Donny interrupts him to say that this is the third week that he’s “been out of the loop”. He adds in the diary room “that I’m not ready to show my cards yet”. Derrick admits that he’s still concerned that Donny has that “Double D” alliance with Devin.

After some more great commercials, it’s now time for Derrick of all people to “go into Beast Mode”. He paints his face, and the Rocky theme comes on as Devin and Caleb also get mentally and physically ready.

The funky music comes on, which means it’s veto competition time! It’s a Vegas casino setup, and Hayden reminds us that the “house always wins in Vegas”. The comp is called “Tumblin’ Dice”, and they have to roll some giant dice to match the number that comes up on a roulette wheel. Sound confusing? Yeah, it’s hard to explain in print.

The first pair to go against each other is Christine and Devin. They must go for the number four. Christine has trouble figuring out how to end up with that number, so obviously Devin wins.

Derrick is the next up, and he also challenges Devin. They must roll around and end up with a two, Derrick seems to take his time. In fact, at one point he was two moves away from winning before he started doing some wacky robot moves inside his dice. Devin beats him by a hair.

It’s now all up to Donny, which worries everybody!

But first, we get some more great CBS promos! Can Donny steal a victory from the professional athlete? He just wants to make his family proud. Devin and Caleb both still don’t believe he’s just a groundskeeper. While watching the other rounds, Donny says that he’s figured out how to win if it’s a 3, 4, or 5. Too bad it comes up a six! Devin goes out a full speed, but Donny takes his time because he has to “figure it out as I go”. Devin gets to the base, but he’s not at the right number, while Donny continues to go at his own pace. He then suddenly wins, and the entire house cheers! “I knew you weren’t a janitor”, says Caleb.

The competition is not over yet, though. The final round is Donny versus Caleb, and they must race to a two. Donny says that he already took out “one big bully. I want to take out both big bullies.” It doesn’t take long for Donny to completely smoke Caleb. “That was hashtag old man beatdown”, he says.

What will Donny do with that veto, though? We’ll find out after one more incredible commercial break.

It doesn’t take long for us to find out, as right after the adverts we see Donny race to Jocasta’s side. “Somebody’s not going home”, he tells her. She starts crying as everybody rushes in to console her. “Winning this veto for Jocasta means the world to me”, says Donny. “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” She says this moement made her feel a “hundred percent better”. I bet she felt two hundred percent after Cody came in and did a semi-striptease for her.

Devin is now seen in the have-not room all by himself. He says he doesn’t want the others to see him feel emotional, but all he’s thinking about is how he let down his daughter. “Every daughter looks at their father like a superhero. I wasn’t her superhero.”

Although we know what happens, Donny must still go through the veto ceremony motions. He even acknowledges that everybody should know what he’s doing, but the “house is so paranoid”. He brings everybody into the house, and announces that he is indeed saving Jocasta. “You were too sick to compete, and all I want is for you to get better.” She again breaks down in tears. Heavy wails, in fact.

Derrick has to name a replacement nominee, and as one would expect, it’s Devin. “On behalf of all the houseguests, Devin take a seat.”  

With that the episode ends, and I can now break out of this nice-nice persona. Can you now see why I do what I do? You can read a recap such as this on a million other sites. Don’t you like a little spice and opinion in these types of articles? There’s no way I can continue to write in that style. If you don’t like my opinions, please let me know and we can have an open discussion. Isn’t that what Big Brother fandom is all about?

My question is why? Great recap of just the facts ma'am, but you're right. That's not why I come here. I followed Collette here from survivor, and now am also addicted to Big Brother which I had not watched previously- have only watched 3 seasons now, but also British and Australia BB (Australia was incredible!!) . Love your podcast, and really like all of you and your sense of humor! I can't imagine any fundamentalist type people even watching this show except for all the publicity last season, so think they come to diss. Lots of bored and frightened sheep out there lately hopping on every scary bandwagon they see just to feel like they are making a difference. Stay true to what you do best!

I went back to the previous recap and I actually didn't think you were that mean. Heck I could see you being even meaner. It is your opinion on the proceedings. I am certainly not going to get upset over anything you say. Some of the fluff they show is a bit much. I actually don't mind the letters they read in the HOH room. Thought it was nice to hear from Derrick's wife.

Jocasta seemed to play up being sick just a tad. It's not like she was dying. She was also overly exuberant in being pulled off the block. You should be happy, but she acted like she had won the game or something. It just seems like she and Victoria don't do anything. I don't get the feeds, so I am relying on the tv eps and reading some recaps of the day.

I too personally hate some of the BB cliches. What the House wants. Not wanting to get blood on my hands. I will protect you next week. I hate that one because the only way you can protect someone 100% is by winning HOH. Even that you have to survive BOB. I just hate hearing that every freakin week.

The people I root are Donny and Derrick. Donny is a nice guy and he's close to my age. Derrick is a stand up guy. I don't really have hatred for any of the others. Well Caleb is damn creepy. And yes Nicole does get too whiny. She is very cute though.

Please, Please for all that is holy, never do the sugar coating again! I think I got a cavity from all the sweet remarks. I'll take sarcasm over being nice any day.

I'm sorry but are you not the author?, anyone and everyone is completely free to write their own take in their own words.

I laughed my ass off picturing you (even though I've no idea what you look like! Lol) furiously typing away with a clenched jaw, rolling your eyes at your own self as you did your best to put a positive spin on the broadcast. Don't do it again, your sarcasm is one of your best traits! ;)

My post was clearly in jest, my friend. Yes I have free reign to do as I like. I did this tonight to provoke a reaction. Which I got. My work here is done. :)
July 16, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterScott
That was great fun!! But I love your spice and opinions, even when I don't agree!

LOL, Shienara took my words right out of my mouth. I was laughing through the whole post, especially about the commercials. Now tell us what you really think. We can handle it.
July 16, 2014 | Unregistered CommenterKimG
Holy crap, I'm still laughing! "After some great commercials…" I fell onto the floor. Everyone in my house came running. When they saw that I was laughing, they kicked me and when back to doing what there were doing. Laughed my ass off at the light and fluffy sarcasm and wit, but I prefer your old curmudgeon sarcasm and wit, which in my humble opinion, makes for one of the best ep recaps in the BB world. Looking forward to you going back to clubbing baby seals. Thanks Scott.

I finally just scrolled to the end if the article to see what you really thought! Want the old "Scott" back!

I am surprised your head did not explode with syrupy-sweet goodness that loosely resembled level 191 on Candy Crush Saga! :) Candy and bile everywhere!

Don't ever do this again, Scott. Don't listen to that one hater in 100 fans who says you're too negative. There's a hater in every bunch. You should be able to tell from the comments that your sarcastic ass is loved very much by your adoring BB Gossip Groupies.

Ok... I couldn't even read the whole thing! While I may not always agree with your opinions, I love to read the snark! If others don't like your style... they can read elsewhere!! Whatever you do, please don't change the way you all do the podcast!! I need a great laugh on Saturdays!
July 17, 2014 | Unregistered Commenterpurpleblossoms
I agree with KimG. I think most of us come to this sight to get the Real Deal about BB16 and not a watered down sickening sweet version. But I will say it gave me and the rest of BB16 Gossip fans a good laugh.

Trust me, I'll be back to normal tonight. I just wrote my opening, and it's clear I saved up my Hatorade. :)
