Saturday - Catching up.

Here I sit on a Saturday morning wondering what to write about.  As you most likely know by now since the last post on the site Zach was evicted in what I would say was the best exit in a long long time by a house guest.  The in a complete crap shoot of a competition, Nicole won her way back into the house.  Here is what's gone on since...

Donny and Nicole are the odd folks out and know it.  So when Cody won the HoH competition later Thursday night the fate of one of their games was mostly sealed and they knew it.

On Friday the new Have Nots were assigned by Cody and shockingly it was Nicole and Donny that will be eating fish bits and tofu for the next week and sleeping uncomfortably. Cody - the guy that always says he is going to 'call people out' can't even assign people as have notes - as you can see Christine helped him to put up Donny by pointing to him behind his back (Nicole had already volunteered).

A few hours later in the first (technically second after double eviction night) nomination ceremony, Cody got to say Nicole and Donny's names yet again when he put them up for eviction.

Its very simple now, if either of them wins the POV they will save themselves and the other will be evicted on Thursday, if neither win it then odds are Nicole will go right back out the door.  Cody seemed to prefer Donny go but Derrick wants Nicole to go and this season Derrick seems to make things work they way he wants them to the majority of the time.

So the POV will be later today, the ceremony on Monday. 

We have a live podcast tonight - please join us at 10pm EST on Mixlr http://mixlr.com/big-brother-gossip-show/ for the live show and chat.

The Night Owl - Weds Night

Well, the night has finally arrived. Zach Attack's stay in the BB house is potentially over.  There wasn't a lot of game to report tonight. Most of the night the HGs were together talking about movies and life and such.

Zach decided he has made peace with this being his last night and that he is actually a little excited to go to the jury house, sleep in a hotel room, and possibly get to have some kind of contact with his family.  He decided to make his last night fun with no campaigning and came up with a new look for himself for his eviction. Caleb and Derrick commented a lot about how much they are going to miss having Zach in the house while Cody, Christine, and Frankie cannot wait for him to be gone.  Christine did mention that she made a really nasty goodbye message and may regret it now.  I really don't understand how Derrick is the only one of these people smart enough to work on jury votes.

Speaking of Derrick, Victoria managed to corner him finally and talk with him about how she is jealous of how much time he spends with Christine lately.  Derrick did what Derrick does and basically talked her down without actually talking, but honestly, their relationship does seem different lately, and I'm not sure if Derrick is still as set on keeping her as his final 3 goat anymore.  Victoria may actually be going sooner than we think.

Cody was also having jealousy issues with how much time Christine spends with Frankie and he made these known.  Christine apologized many times over and by the end of the nnight they seemed to be ok again.

The plan as the HGs see it is for everyone to go after Donny again.  It's literally all of them against him (except they don't know about the returning jury member tomorrow).  Donny made the mistake of talking to Christine early in the day when they were the only two awake.  He talked with her about the idea of her being low man on the totem pole in their alliance and about the idea of working together instead of against each other.  Donny implied that Derrick talks to everyone every day and that he has a lot of friends in the house.  He also told her that when he spoke to Zach about the pecking order, Zach thought Christine might be next to go home after him.  He asked her not to mention his name to any of the rest of her alliance because that would really screw him, and she said she never would.

Ten minutes later Christine ran to Cody and told him everything Donny said plus added a lot of not true things to it to get things really stirred up. And thus began the game of telephone about Donny. Not that it matters, Donny was the next target anyway.

The thing about Christine (in my opinion anyway) is that she could be an AWESOME pot stirrer if she would stop stirring BACKWARDS! When you stir the pot against people like Zach and Donny that the house is already against, it really doesn't do anything, but if she were to stir it up against Frankie to Derrick and Cody and vice versa, it would sit her pretty in the middle.  That's not a bad place to be if those guys go after each other.  I'm just not sure if she will ever do it or not.

Anyway.. I'm getting side tracked.  I expect the HOH comp and the returning juror comp will be one in the same tonight, and I think it will be endurance.  I really want Zach to win, but I have a feeling it will be Hayden or Nicole.  And even if Zach loses and goes to jury, I will be happy for him to be away from Frankie's sociopathic ways and the mob mentality asshole behavior that has been aimed at him via the Team America twist and Frankie this year.  Plus, Doctor Will literally endorsed the kid on twitter, so I think he has already won something. Zach has been my favorite house guest in many many many seasons, and I will miss his feed entertainment terribly if he does not return. But such is the way of Big Brother...

This long season really needs someone to shake things up a bit, so I pray that whoever DOES get to come back from jury will do something interesting and go after the people who have not even been on anyone else's radar.  I would LOVE to see Frankie follow Zach to the jury house after everything he put him through and all the joy he got out of evicting him, but I rarely get so lucky.  I feel like Frankie is there to stay.

This should be a big night between the eviction, returnee, possible endurance comp on the feeds, and the craziness and scrambling that will follow.  Plus it's the first single HOH of the season, so hopefully not a boring night.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night....

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 25 Recap

Tonight marks the beginning of the end for a fan favorite. But is it really the end? Will this person be resurrected within the same hour as his departure?

I’m getting ahead of myself here, though. Tonight’s episode will follow the typical Wednesday template of BOB reactions, veto comp, and veto ceremony. Oh yeah, and a lot of filler.

At least the veto competition will be interesting tonight, as it’s the beloved Zingbot. Besides that cheap ass robot’s “zings”, Kathy Griffin will be entering the house to add a bit of her own snark. This should be fun.

We begin the festivities to the reactions to Donny and Christine’s shocking Battle of the Block win. The one that Donny singlehandedly won. The one that Beastmode and cocky Caleb were complete failures, even with the assistance of that turncoat Christine. In other words, one of my highlights of the season!

Donny starts off the show shirtless, thanking Jesus to the camera. He is “tickled” to win, but he’s hurt that his suspicions about Christine were proven in the competition. “It’s an awful pain. I’ve been nothing but nice to these people, and I’m sure they were all in on it.”

In the bathroom, Christine is talking to Cody and Derrick about their failure. Cody asks if the two of them split up, and concludes he and Caleb should have done the same. She also knows that Donny now has them figured out. She adds in the diary room that she was so convinced he was going to fail that she didn’t even really hide her sabotage. “He knows that I did that on purpose.” Derrick adds more of the obvious, including the fact that this is the first time things haven’t gone his way. Caleb concludes the segment by saying that Victoria now has to go up.

We move to the kitchen, and Zach and Frankie are cleaning. Frankie says in the diary room that this is awful situation to have two of his allies up, and he now needs to win the veto…”and put up a new target”. He hints that the person may indeed be Zach.

Derrick then congratulates Donny, and says “as long as he doesn’t put me up, we’re good for the week”. He says that Victoria is the one that Frankie will probably put out, which he explains is to make Donny feel like Derrick wasn’t involved. Donny doesn’t seem impressed, and sits down in silence on the bed. “People think I’m a country bumpkin”, he says in the diary room, “but I’m very aware of what’s going on. Derrick has blown smoke up everybody’s tail this whole season. When he tells me he figured I could pull this one out, I knew he was blowing smoke.”  Derrick leaves the room, and Donny gives a little look to the camera. Oh wait, here comes Derrick back.

Derrick then throws out a bunch of his cliches in the diary room, including “if you’re not with me, you’re against me. WIth this veto coming up, he could potentially throw a monkey wrench in our plan.”

He heads into the diary room to tell Frankie what just happened, including Donny’s “mocking” look at the camera that he saw when he walked back in. They both talk a little tough, but they’re just being clowns. Frankie is most worried that Donny or Victoria win the veto, as it is “the most critical veto of the season”. Well, until next week. Derrck concludes this scene by saying that Zach is the person that should probably go up, but he’s keeping quiet for now.

On to more Donny material, as he is in the storage room having a little drink. Zach walks in to congratulate him on his victory, and Donny says that he hopes that Zach wins veto “for your sake”. Donny adds in the diary room that he knows that they pretend that Zach is in their clique, and hopes to gain his trust. He continues on to pump him up, and Zach says he’s starting to understand that his alliance may not be with him.

Zach then runs into the HOH room and hugs Frankie. He asks what would happen if Victoria won the veto and used it on Cody. If anybody else wins, Zach wants Victoria put up, and adds that Derrick probably beats anybody in the final two. Zach adds in the diary room that he understands that he’s made some mistakes and has riled people up, and Frankie’s smart move would be to go against either himself, Derrick, or Cody. “I’m just praying that he goes through with the plan to backdoor Victoria.”

After commercials, Donny makes a rare appearance in the HOH to talk about Team America. It’s so stupid. I’m sorry. They have to steal clothing, and then hold a neighborhood watch. “This will be a fun mission”, says Derrick. Um, no. There is then a montage of them stealing items before the segment ends.

Frankie then announces it’s time to draw for the veto competition. Frankie pulls Victoria, Cody gets Donny, and Derrick’s chip is for Christine. Uh oh, no Zach Attack in this competition.

In the bathroom, Caleb and Christine are bitching about Donny being chosen for the veto. “Un-beeee-lievable”, complains Christine. Caleb believes that if one of them isn’t saved, he will be the one to go home. The worst case scenario, obviously, is Victoria winning.

It’s time for more advice from Donny, as Zach is brushing his teeth in the bathroom. He tells Zach that Derrick and his pals don’t want to unload Victoria “because she’s weak in competitions. I’m hoping they don’t go for you.” He promises to try his best to win veto to make sure that Zach won’t go up.

Much of the house is now asleep when the front door suddenly opens. Yep, it’s Zingbot time! “You all look a whole lot better in person”, he (it?) says, and Donny wonders why the Zingbot is so nice this time around. “He ain’t acting right.”

“Donny, I like your beard but I wish it didn’t cover your handsome face. Props” Even Caleb is confused by this. Wait, that doesn’t take much.

The doorbell then rings, and in walks Kathy Griffin. Frankie squeals like a little school girl, and the Zingbot does a proper introduction. “I was watching the live feeds, and I got here as soon as I could. There is something seriously wrong with Zingbot. He’s only dishing out compliments. I’m here for a Zinger-vention...let me show you how it’s done.”

Caleb is first. “You and Amber have something in common. You think she’s drop dead gorgeous, and she wants you to drop dead.”

Now it’s Christine’s turn. “There’s a belief that glasses make people look smarter. Thanks for disproving that.”

Victoria - “I would zing you but I’m only supposed to zing people that are actually playing the game.”

“What do you call someone who’s not afraid to cry, wears pink, and cuddles with men? You call them Zach.” Zach acts pissed, and Kathy walks up to him. “Zing, asshole.” He says in the diary room that he’s not prepared for Kathy Griffin to tear him in shreds.

With that, the segment is over. Wait, what? Where was the zings against Derrick? Or, most importantly for those of us watching the feeds, Cody?

The actual competition happens after commercials, and Kathy is hosting. They have to “reboot” the Zingbot to his spiteful self by plugging in cables to provide electricity to a series of lightbulbs. The first to do so wins, and as Kathy adds, “let’s face it. You all kind of need it at this point.”

After the usual barrage of “we have to win” diary room segments, the game begins. And again, we have to hear a repeat of the rules, this time by Frankie. Why do they waste our time like this?

Frankie gets his first bulb lit, followed by Donny. Victoria, of course, is dead last through the whole competition. She’s a “dim bulb, literally’, says Griffin. Cody’s not doing much better. Donny pulls ahead, but Caleb begins to catch up. He’s smart, y’all. Donny then has a bit of trouble with the third bulb, so it’s between beastmode and Frankie. One of Frankie’s connectors falls off, but he goes back and fixes it before finally winning.

Yep, the true Zingbot comes back to life! “Frankie! That’s some nice tan, but I”m surprised you get any sun at all considering how much time you spend in your sister’s shadow!”

“This is the house of good looking dudes. There’s not one unattractive man in here. Oh wait, I didn’t see you there, Derrick!”

“Donny, your look is very Duck Dynasty. Too bad  your social game is more like Suck Dynasty!”

“Cody, your such a nice guy. You haven’t made any enemies this summer, except for maybe Christine’s husband!” POW!!!! Kathy gets a plug in for new comedy show, and is out the door.

After more commercials, Zach congratulates Frankie for his victory. Frankie says that some people wanted him to just let Caleb win, but he wanted Kathy Griffin to put the veto around his neck. Caleb joins them, and says he’s fine with that. Frankie asks if they’re going to keep him safe next week, and they both agree. In fact, Zach says he’ll keep him safe for two weeks.

We move on to Frankie laying in the HOH bed, and he’s talking about how it’s time for a big move. He needs to get out somebody who “has been bad for my game from the beginning.”

There’s some fluff before we get to that, though, as Cody can’t find his hat. Yep, it’s Team America time, and I have a feeling that it’s going to be a lighter, fluffier version. of what really happened. Caleb now notices that he’s missing his “fucking boots”, and Derrick  concludes there’s a “saboteur”. Zach’s gator shirt is also missing, and the house goes nuts.

Victoria is initially blamed, and Derrick decides to start the neighborhood watch. Frankie has now lost his glitter, and a house meeting is called. Derrick commences with the “BiB neighborhood watch”, and him and Derrick are excited about how easy this was to pass.

Zach starts screaming about how he needs his gator shirt, and the boys all run into the diary room. It’s still all fun and games, though, which is SOOOO not like how it actually went down.

Oh wait, maybe I’m wrong. Caleb then decides that the Saboteur has to be Zach, and Frankie plays along with it. Yep, we go back to the “Caleb is Amanda’s cousin”, and Frankie sees this as the opportunity to make it so Zach can go up.

Caleb is buying Frankie’s bullshit about how he has to be the saboteur, and the accusations begin to pile up. “You’re caught!” Zach says it’s not him. “We’ll show you Thursday you’re proven guilty.” Zach says there’s nothing he can do to prove he’s not the guy, and he’s correct.

It’s decided by Caleb to go look in the storage room garbage can, and sure enough that’s where all of the times are hidden. They all celebrate, but the damage has been done. Zach is still guilty without proof, and Frankie continues to play it up.

This is a pretty awful edit of what actually went down on Sunday night. Go back on this site and read what I wrote on that evening. It got ugly. Really ugly.,and Frankie proved to be a complete piece of garbage in the way he treated Zach. I’m not even one of those who worships at the feet of Zach, but Frankie crossed many lines that night. I’ll never respect him for this.

Here we go with what I promised at the beginning of this recap. Frankie hits all of his marks, and then calls the house in for the veto ceremony. Frankie then saves Caleb, and dressed in the worst Bieber costume ever, he goes into the worst rap ever:

“I’m going to take a page from my best friend Zach Attack,

But I’m going to do it better,

Cuz your shit was kind of wack

I love you so much and it would be fun for you to stay,

But if I don’t put you up,

I’m going to look cray cray.

So Zach my friend please go and have a seat

It’s time for you and Julie Chen to finally meet.”

Oh please. What a worm. Frankie says he expects “another Zach Attack, and most likely he’s going to throw every single one of us under the bus to each other. I know there’s going to be some fireworks coming.”

Cody babbles but I don’t hear what he says.

Frankie says he feels “betrayed” by Frankie. “I’ve been with this guy from day one, as friends; as an alliance member. I’ve had his back and this is how he treats me? It’s the worst feeling in the world.”

That’s it. The episode is over. What did you think? Are you upset with the Zach nomination? Or Frankie’s awful rap? Or how they edited down the Team America awfulness? Let us know what you think!

The Night Owl - Tuesday Night

Not a whole lot happened in the house tonight, but as Zach did do a little campaigning (and I haven't written in a few days), I thought I would at least update.

Early this morning Zach and Donny had a conversation where Donny conveyed an idea to Zach.  He told him that it might help him to just bring to Frankie the idea that Frankie is a huge target and that keeping Zach in the house could potentially help protect Frankie where as Derrick and Cody are paired together and less likely to protect him.

Zach waited until late night to bring it up to Frankie when he got him alone at the pool table, and he put his own pitch into it as well.  Zach told Frankie that Cody has no enemies in the house and that is dangerous for Frankie where as if Zach is in the house he will be nominated every week until they get him out, and that is better for Frankie's game.

It was actually a great pitch with some good points, but Frankie has never been able to see anything as being about anybody but himself and so dramatics ensued. I've never been more sure that Frankie is a sociopath than I am now. I was convinced of it after his fight with Zach the other day, but I'm even more convinced now.

Frankie kept telling Zach how HURTFUL he is to him in the house and how he has thrown him under the bus over and over from the beginning of the game (which is actually what Frankie has done to HIM the whole game). He told him how he is a prolific liar and no one will trust him ever again and that by campaigning all he is doing is hurting people.  THEN he told Zach that by doing what he has been doing in the game he is...wait for it...TAKING FOOD OUT OF STARVING AFRICAN CHILDREN'S MOUTHS!"  I can't make this up..  I thought it was schools that Frankie was going to build in Africa?  He also told Zach that his leaving would be "the death to the last traitor." Anyway, this conversation turned into another shaming much like the one the other day that made me want to not watch the feeds again until Frankie is evicted, and then when it was over, Frankie dramatized it to Caleb, Derrick, and Cody.

Frankie told Caleb, Derrick, and Cody that he had basically told Zach to "go fuck himself" and that by campaigning all Zach is doing is hurting them all and himself.  Did I mention that when he was talking to Zach he compared his campaigning to "warmongering"?

So anyway, that's what happened.  Zach is still going home. It's still hopeless for him unless he wins the returning juror comp (whatever that may be). I'll probably write my "extremely sad to see Zach go, but happy for him to be away from people like Frankie" blog tomorrow night (kidding kind of).  Until then..
