The Battle of the Block has already happened -- which at first had me quite annoyed this morning. "Holy good gravy," I thought, using one of my own catch phrases to myself. "Eviction, new HOHs, two times two nominations, and Battle of the Block all happened within the last 12 hours?!"
The eviction and double-HOH battle are timed for the live Thursday show, but why would the producers do all that other stuff only hours later, before most of us woke up today?
@carlosv_1031 had the answer: Most of the show crew gets the July 4 holiday off work, so producers had the house guests deal with the nominations and Battle earlier than usual.
So this makes for the extremely rare opportunity to scoop fellow contributor Ash, whose Night Owl posts are the most useful daily reads in all Big Brother blogosphere. At least here on the web, as this is old news to anybody who follows @ashes2ashes13 and @BBGossip. (Go follow them both right this instant.)
We'll see the Battle of the Block on the Sunday show, but here are the results:
- Hayden and Nicole won the battle, so they're safe this week.
- HOH #1 Amber, who put them on the block, is dethroned and no longer safe. But she's not the target.
- HOH #2 Devin reigns this week.
- Devin's nominees Brittany and Paola are still on the block, and Brittany is the current target.
Devin was the house's real target for this week -- but as I'm learning, Big Brother always finds a way to keep such players around. Will Brittany really be the next one to go? Or will the Power of Veto winner save her? Will Paola win any comps? Talk about it below or share your comments @uselesstraffic.
