Big Brother Gossip #409: Conspiracy Corner

Last week, the three of us talked about the Big Brother conspiracies we beleived happened surrounding Frankie's BOB win, and his big reveal. This week, we concentrated on the varous conspiracies some of the house guests now believe surrounding this week's BOB.

Besides that, we also talked about Frankie's new diva status, his dramatic bath on Thursday night, his HOH win on Thursday, and his POV win that occurred during tonight's live broadcast. Ooof, sounds like tonight is a show all about Frankie. (It's really not.)

Grab this from the usual sources, including iTunes and Stitcher, or...


Thanks to everybody who listened live on Mixlr, and also thanks to Ash for not only her help with the audio clips but for providing some of the "zings" from the Zingbot. Of course, great thanks also go to Mike and Colette for a great show!


The Night Owl - Friday Night

Alliances make plans. Big Brother laughs. 

So as predicted, Derrick nominated Christine and Donny.  Frankie nominated Cody and Caleb.  When the feeds came back from the BOB competition we learned instantly that Christine had failed to throw the competition well enough and Donny won it by himself.  This is awesome news for Donny, but pretty bad news for Zach if Derrick gets his way.

After the BOB comp showering and general talk was over, Donny went to his room alone and shed some tears.  He knew that Christine tried to throw it. It was apparently very obvious. She was trying to give pieces of the puzzle (which was some kind of skeleton) to the other team. 

Derrick immediately went to work planting seeds with people saying that Zach was going to talk to Donny and rat out their whole big plan to throw it.  He tried to plant a few seeds with Frankie, but Frankie wasn't having it just yet.  Frankie said that he was putting up Victoria if the Veto was used.

Names were drawn early in the evening for the veto comp happening today.  It will be the Zingbot veto which is normally a puzzle.  Zach unfortunately is not playing, and the only other person not playing is Derrick who is hosting.  So of all the people playing (Cody, Caleb, Donny, Victoria, Frankie) the only person who MIGHT not use the veto would be Donny.

At midnight Donny and Zach were allowed to eat again making both of them extremely happy.  Donny pulled Zach aside and hinted to him about the things going on in the house.  He told Zach he wanted him to get to playin the veto comp because he feels like Zach will be the one going on the blog and being targeted if the veto gets used.  Donny promised Zach that even if it goes against all the others he will vote for him if he gets put on the block.  He asked him not to say anything to the others and to continue to pretend that both of them think that Victoria is the target.  Zach promised him he had his back and wouldn't say anything and they ended it there.

After Frankie went to bed in the HOH room, Derrick pulled Caleb into the Hive Room to talk.  His mission was pretty clear.  He knows that Caleb has sway with Frankie, and he wants Zach to be the one put on the block so that he can save Victoria.  He talked to Caleb and told him that Zach would take them out and Victoria won't.  He said that Zach was a vote when they needed him and now they don't need him anymore since they have Victoria.  Caleb was more than willing to jump in on the bashing and make up a few stories of his own.  He told Derrick that Zach was in an alliance with Hayden and Nicole and that Frankie had refused to join it, but that Zach was a part of it.  They both agreed that no matter who won veto, even if it was Victoria or Donny, they would make them use it and convince Frankie to put up Zach.

Zach meanwhile has continued to play dumb and act like Victoria is the target.  Derrick asked him if Donny had mentioned anything about the BOB comp to him and Zach lied and said no.  And that is pretty much where things stand right now.

This is the boring/annoying part of each week for me when they all decide to make Zach a target.  This time I think he truly will evicted if Donny doesn't win the veto and keep nominations the same.  His only chance if that doesn't happen will be against Hayden, Nicole, and Jocasta in the returning jury member competition. I'm hoping Donny pulls off a double win and is able to snag the veto as well.  I would love to see Caleb and Cody have to rid out the block and then have one of them evicted.  It would at LEAST be something different this week. We just have to wait and see who wins veto and what Frankie decides to do. As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...


The Night Owl - Thursday Night

Ok, well, Frankie and Derrick are your new HOHs.  I mentioned last night that I thought it would be Frankie and it happened.  The intended target is still Donny, but getting there was more trouble than expected tonight.

After the feeds came back there wasn't really a whole lot of talking done.  Derrick did first talk to Donny and tell him that there would be a chance of him going up if it was what everyone in the house wanted, but that Victoria would likely be the intended target.  He basically just prepped Donny and made sure that he wouldn't be TOO angry if he or Frankie put him on the block.  He talked a lot about Team America stuff etc.. I don't know if Donny bought it or not because he went to bed shortly after the HOH reveal.  He seemed ok with it at the time, but really, what choice does he have?

Prior to talking to Donny, a lot of the members of The Detonators/Bomb Squad/whatever the hell you want to call them now had talked in the bathroom and first agreed without Zach there that he would be the one going up next to Donny and expected to throw the competition to keep Donny on the block, while 2 of their other members went up on the other side to win the competition and achieve safety for the week.  Zach came in on the conversation and agreed that he would do it.

Later Derrick pulled Zach into the Hive Room and talked to him about this past week and about his feelings on the whole thing.  He told him he was proud of the way he played this past week and that he felt like after their talk on Saturday night after the fight, Zach had really not run his mouth much and had done much better with the game.  Zach told Derrick that he really didn't want to throw the competition and he just didn't feel safe doing that at this juncture in the game (Can you really blame him?).  Derrick said he needed to voice his opinion and say everything he felt in the meeting the alliance had planned for later when they were to decide nominations.

Derrick and Frankie had a short talk and decided that while they would tell everyone else they played "Rock Paper Scissors" for who would stay HOH, ultimately they were going to let Derrick stay HOH so that Frankie could play in the competition this coming week which will likely be endurance.

HOH room reveals were then made and Frankie squealed and carried on about his Ariana Grande CD and his Ariana Grande pictures etc.. etc.. Then it was time for the nominations talk.

Derrick told Victoria to stay downstairs for a while and let them talk because she was safe and not being nominated this week.  Zach immediately voiced to the room that he wasn't comfortable going up and throwing the competition.  He asked Christine and Cody what they thought. Christine immediately said "well I don't want to be the one to go on the block!" Cody agreed that he didn't want to be the one to go up and throw the competition either.  BUT, as we all know, it's always Zach's fault, so the anger from Caleb, Christine, and Cody was immediately aimed in his direction.  I mean...he is supposed to completely trust them to keep him in the house even though they almost voted him out twice...right?  There was a lot of threatening by Caleb to Zach telling him that if he were to win the BOB with Donny and not throw it, he would be the target of all of them next week.  Everyone else who didn't want to be nominated was mostly silent, and Frankie kept explaining over and over again how this week was a fool proof plan and that there was NO WAY the person going up and throwing the comp would be going home.  Zach finally agreed that if he was the one to go up he would have no choice but to throw the competition for the alliance, but suggested that they draw skittles and whoever had their color drawn first had to go up next to Donny while the next two colors drawn would go up on Frankie's side and dethrone Frankie.  Christine's skittle was drawn to go up next to Donny. Caleb and Cody's skittles were drawn to go up on Frankie's side.  Zach's orange skittle was never drawn making him not an original nominee this week.

Caleb was extremely pissed off at Zach and went downstairs and talked to Derrick for a while.  Caleb at first really wanted Zach to be the backdoor target this week for not being the one to agree to go up and throw the competition.  Derrick talked him down and explained that they HAVE to get Donny out if they put him up because for one, they don't want him coming after them, and two, someone could be coming back next week who would work with Donny against them. So Donny has to be the target this week unless he wins the POV.

Everyone else filtered into the room after a while and Zach eventually explained to Caleb that he would have thrown the BOB if he had to, but that it would have been emotionally hard for him to do it because he has watched Donny cry to him in the Have Not room and he just didn't want to do that to him. He volunteered and said he would be more than willing to go up against Victoria next week if needed, but that doing it to Donny was hard for him.  Caleb eventually told him he wasn't mad at him anymore and said he was just irritated with how the whole thing went down.

Silliness ensued afterwords and Caleb started beating Victoria with a pillow and dressing up in various props to do Ninja moves and chase Victoria around the house.  Crisis temporarily averted.

When Cody got some alone time with Christine, he told her that he didn't care WHO she went up to in the house, he would never EVER vote her out.  So, I guess they have a final two deal now.  Meanwhile, Victoria was in the other room complaining to Derrick about how Cody and Christine are stuck up each other's asses.  I don't see Derrick letting that relationship go on much longer.  He likes to take Cody's play things away to keep him focused on their final two.

So the plan now is for Christine and Donny to be nominated by Derrick and throw the BOB to Cody and Caleb who will be nominated by Frankie today. Christine is going to pretend to be ill from something she ate and try to sabotage the competition.  Then, when veto is played, if anyone outside of Donny or Victoria wins the POV, they take Christine off of the block and put up Victoria to keep up the charade to Donny that Victoria is the target.  If Donny wins POV the plan of the group is for Victoria to go home, but I have a feeling it would be Zach instead.  The POV will be Zingbot this week, and Zingbot is usually a puzzle, so Donny winning is a big possibility.

Whoever does end up getting voted out will have a chance to get back in the house against Hayden, Nicole, and Jocasta on Thursday night. So really, this eviction isn't that set in stone.  That's pretty much it for the night. Everyone is enjoying silliness and games right now.  It will be interesting to see if Christine is actually able to throw this BOB this week and keep she and Donny on the block.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...


Big Brother Season 16, Episode 23 Recap

The boycott is over, and I’m back!

Tonight should be a pretty predictable episode, as there has been no doubt who is going home since the veto ceremony on Monday. Everything else will be the standard eviction night fare, with the only unusual item to be shown tonight should be the Dallas Cowboys practice session that was attended by Frankie, Caleb, and Christine.

So let’s get this over with, picking up with Christine replacing Zach with Nicole as a nominee. We start off with Cody and Christine heading up to the HOH, and he picks her up in a giant hug. Christine says that with this nomination she has “clearly chosen sides, and at this point I just have to keep my fingers crosses that The Detonators keep me safe and they’re still working with me.” Frankie and Caleb join them in the HOH, and Frankie also hugs her. The boys then wrestle in a frankly homoerotic fashion.

Christine is now outside, and Nicole asks if they can talk. “I’m not pissed. I’m hurt”, says Nicole. She adds that she is upset that Christine didn’t bother to come to her so she could defend herself against what the boys told her. “I deserve to know why I was sitting there.” Christine responds that a “lot of people” told her that the same thing would have happened to her if Caleb and Frankie had not lost BOB. Nicole says that she would have never backdoored her, and that she just agreed to anything the boys said. Nicole doesn’t believe her. “It was her own decision.” Nicole then breaks down in tears, saying she has “literally done nothing” to deserve this.

We move on to some footage that’s a bit out of place. Zach and Donny are in the Have-Not room, and Donny talks about how he’s been alone throughout the entire game. He tears up a bit, and Zach says in the diary room that he feels that Donny’s a great person. “I honestly kind of feel bad for the guy.” Donny says he’s still going to fight, but wonders what it is about him that scares people. “I have no idea”, replies Zach. “I think it’s the beard. Fear the beard.” It’s actually a touching scene, but came from last Saturday when Zach was still a nominee.

Victoria (who?) and Nicole are now laying in bed, and Nicole is blowing her nose in between tears. “I don’t even know why I’m crying. I just feel so terrible.” The two talk about how Christine and Nicole act like they’re married, and Victoria adds that the boys are just picking them off one by one. Nicole desides she needs to try to get the votes to stay.

Ok, a funny bit of footage here. Derrick and Cody are sleeping, and all of a sudden Cody punches himself in the face. He needs to do that more often. He wakes up, looks around, and rolls over.

Nicole has now grabbed Christine once again, and says that she has to make an attempt to stay. They gossip about Donny a bit, and Nicole adds that if she stays she will still be their biggest target. “Honestly, it’s getting through”, says Christine. “Donny, I don’t trust a bone in his body.” She really makes no sense these days. Finally, she says “I wouldn’t be upset if you stayed.”

Now Nicole moves on to Cody with her sob story. She says that she would never go after him or Derrick, but Donny would. Somehow, Cody believes that Donny is “scheming behind the scenes, plus there are rumors that I’m one of his targets.” Seriously, Cody is stupid.

Christine now reports to Derrick and Cody what Nicole said. “We’re (Donny’s) number one targets.” Derrick replies that Nicole is one of the smartest people in the house, but Cody wants to go after Donny. Derrick claims that he has to hear him out. “At this point, I don’t know what I’m going to do.” Yeah, right. That’s a nice reading of the script, copper!

After the first ad break, we get the promo for the upcoming Thursday Night Football. Yep, it’s time for the unlikely trio to visit the Cowboys training camp. It’s a waste of time. They all act hoot and holler like it’s exciting, and Caleb can’t wait to meet Jerry Jones. They get a tour of the facility, and there’s a bit of Frankie showing off. They then meet Mr. Jones, who provides them with some gear. Caleb is excited because Jones told him he looks like a player.

Various Cowboys then meet them and sign autographs, including Tony Romo, Dez Bryant, and Jason Whitten. The players all put on their game face and act like they know who these loons are, but obviously they don’t. They then view a bit of practice before heading back home. Well, home as in the Big Brother house, and they all read a promo for the upcoming season. A waste of time.

Julie then goes to the living room, and asks Caleb about the trip. He says his favorite person to meet was Jerry Jones. She moves on to ask about the drama in the house, and asks Victoria what was the most exciting part of the drama. Victoria doesn’t get the Ariana bait, though. Instead, she talks about how she cries. Stupid, stupid, stupid! Zach is then asked where things stand between him and Frankie, and he responds that he still hates everybody in the house. “But I hate Frankie the least! We made up, everything’s great, and he’s still my best friend.” Frankie is asked about playing solo in the BOB, and we move on without any mention of Ariana!

More commercials before final plea time. Nicole goes first, and flashes the audience with her short skirt. She thanks all of her friends and family, and then talks about how the game is her dream. Donny then thanks God, and also gives shout outs to his family. He says they’ve all been like little brothers and sisters to him.

Voting then starts with Caleb, who votes to evict Nicole, as does Zach, Cody, Victoria, Frankie, and Derrick. Yes, Nicole is out with a unanimous expected.

Ms. Chen announces the news...oh wait, there’s commercials first. After we return, she finally tells the house, and Nicole again flashes America. Blue panties? It’s a peaceful exit, as she smiles and hugs everybody.

The interview begins with the obvious question about being the first person to go from HOH to eviction. Nicole says “they gave me a lot more credit than what I really did in there...they maybe saw me as a huge threat”. She is then asked if she likes anybody in the house, and she says she loves Donny. The Christine friendship is then brought up, and Nicole says it was probably a smart move to put her up. “I’m  frustrated with her right now. I thought she was my friend. I don’t think very highly of her as a person, but as a game player (it was) a smart move”

Then we get the Ariana question. Ugh. Nicole apologizes to all of Ariana’s fans for trying to get him out. She then says she is looking forward to seeing Hayden, but doesn’t know if they have a future. Asked if it was everything she hoped it would be, Nicole says it was “awesome”.

Time for the goodbye messages. Christine says she was “one of the coolest girls I ever met”, and apologizes for what happened. Frankie says that he “admires your passion and knowledge of the game”, and going against her was “one of the most difficult things about being in this house”. Derrick gives her similar accolades, and Donny says she was the “last, closest friend in the house”, and hopes to remain friends with her. Julie then asks if she would do anything different if she could come back, and Nicole says that she wouldn’t trust so many people. Nicole then gets the news that she may get to go back in.

Now it’s the real moment of truth; the segment of the show that will determine just how interested I will be for the next seven days. Tonight’s HOH comp involves some “scary” images from last night, so we get some footage that begins with Zach teasing Nicole. A zombie then appears in the mirror, and Nicole screams. The rest of the house wanders downstairs to see what happened, and then Frankie and Victoria are scared in the bathroom. “Beastmode was even a little scared”, says Caleb. They all head into the Fire Room, and the lights go of for more “zombies”

A bunch are now in the living room, and the TV suddenly comes on from the “Big Brother System”. It’s a Zombie Apocalypse at the Big Brother house! A bunch of clues are then read off for them to remember for tonight’s comp. “Stay inside and start showmances immediately”, it says at one point.

Obviously, it’s a question comp, and it’s an “A/B” type called “Dead of Household”. Caleb is out on the first question, but they all get the second question correct. Donny and Victoria are then eliminated, which takes my hopes out of this week. Even worse, Zach is the next out! The three remaining players are again correct on the next three questions, but Cody then gets the following one wrong. Derrick and Frankie are the new HOH’s. Ugh, this suck donkey dick.

I’m skipping the final segment, as that godawful redheaded Reilly monster is given some airtime for reasons I’ll never understand. I’d rather even see Jeff again instead of her.

So that’s it! What did you think of tonight’s broadcast? Are you happy that Nicole’s whiny voice is gone? Are you happy that Frankie and Derrick are HOH? Tell us what you think!
