Battle of the Block loss + POV loss = HOH elimination?

Here's exactly how an HOH could find him/herself evicted in the same week this year.

The big twists for #BB16, as you now know, include two Heads of Household (HOH) competitions and then two sets of two eviction nominees. Frankie and Caleb each won HOH (as CBS aired on the Wednesday and Thursday shows, respectively). As live feeders later learned, Frankie put Brittany and Victoria on the block, and then Caleb nominated Donny and Paola.

A new-for-#BB16 competition called the Battle of the Block took place entirely before the feeds went live for the first time this season. The Battle is between the two pairs of nominees. The winning pair is removed from the block (no longer up for eviction), and the HOH who nominated the losing pair is dethroned.

Not that they'd have shown the Battle itself on the live feeds, necessarily; CBS plans to air it during Sunday episodes. But live feeders figured out overnight from house guest conversations that Brittany and Victoria won the first-ever Battle of the Block competition. That means four things:

  • Brittany and Victoria are safe from eviction this week.
  • Since Frankie's nominees won the comp, Frankie is no longer HOH.
  • Caleb is the reigning HOH until Thursday, so he's safe from eviction too.
  • Donny or Paola might be evicted -- unless the Power of Veto competition changes a nominee.

Power of Veto (POV) competitions always include the HOH, the nominees, and for most of the season, additional house guests who get into the comp based on a random drawing of chips.

This season's first POV competitors will include Caleb (HOH) plus Donny and Paola (the nominees who are still on the block) and those whose names were drawn ... which are Victoria, Cody, and Zach.

Frankie was dethroned as HOH and was not selected for the POV comp, so he has no control over his destiny this week.

If Donny or Paola wins POV, obviously he or she will save him/herself. If Victoria, Cody, or Zach wins, one of them could also choose to save either Donny or Paola. Then HOH Caleb will have to nominate somebody new.

Since Frankie isn't even competing for POV, he's not safe and could be nominated. And that, newbies, is how a house guest can go from HOH to eviction all within the same week. Twisted, eh?

Who is most likely to win POV? Do you think Caleb would put Frankie on the block in a potentially history-making move? Who is most likely to be the first one evicted? Hit me up at @uselesstraffic or share your thoughts in the comments below.

The Night Owl

And we are live! The feeds came on tonight at 1am EST and everything is super confusing.  Bear with me readers as I am out of practice and the game has changed drastically this year.  With the new twist being a battle between the 4 nominees and one of the HOHs being dethroned, strategy is changing a little bit..as if it wasn't hard enough to keep up with 16 people without all the added confusion!

When the feeds first went live, the HGs were all waiting for it to happen and then Frankie shouted some nonsense to the live feeders and everyone continued to the Kitchen to play nice together for a while.

However, it didn't take long to figure out most of what was going on (confusing though it may be).  The first thing that became apparent was the Paola and Donny were nominated as their keys were the only ones missing from the memory wall.  It seems that Caleb nominated Paola and Donny while Frankie nominated Victoria and Brittany.  Brittany and Victoria defeated Paola and Donny in the Battle of the Block competition making Caleb the HOH and dethroning Frankie and his nominations.  It quickly became obvious that Donny is the odd/old man out.

I'm sad that Groundskeeper Donny is the current target.  I enjoyed his Donny-isms and cricket noises in the first 2 episodes..but alas..

About an hour and half into feed watching Zach and Frankie stole some moments in the HOH to talk about their final 2 and their alliance.  Since they have been in the house for a week and I've only seen a few hours of their interactions, it would be impossible to say if their alliance is real or not, BUT, it appears to be pretty solid.  They discussed having side alliances.  Zach is supposed to be in a faux alliance with Cody, and Derrick (and possibly Devin, but they mentioned Devin losing his mind already) and Frankie is supposedly just "doing his thing" for now.  They discussed a few scenarios of upcoming targets and people they would like to get out.  Caleb and Cody were both on that list.  Frankie said he would be happy with Paola going home this week, but both agreed that she is not the target and she will self destruct on her own if given time.

Caleb spent a LOT of time talking about Amber (who he seems a little obsessed with) with Paola before going off to discuss the current nomination situation and veto aspirations with "the boys".  Caleb, Cody, Zach, and Devin all discussed thinking that Donny is actually a professor or something other than what he says he is.  They don't want him to win POV, but if he does win POV, Caleb says he will put up Joey and she will go home.  He doesn't think Paola is enough of a threat to go.

A few other things worth noting: Hayden seems to be in some kind of showmance/romance/flirtmance/stupid-mance with Nicole (anyone else think of David and Aaryn immediately?).  Current have-nots are Brittany, Joey, Cody, and Hayden. The veto comp is supposed to be played sometime today if the HGs discussing it are correct.

Oh yeah..and this happened within the first 10 minutes:

I'm calling it an early night tonight as I don't think a lot more will go on tonight. I'm expecting a lot more game talk after the POV is played tomorrow. So far this is looking like a decent season imo.  I'm actually kind of excited about the twist for once.  Not the Team America one.  I could care less about that one.  I'm excited about this dual HOH and dueling nominees twist though.  I doubt it will last past Jury, but for now it makes strategy more interesting, and interesting strategy plus a cast full of all people I've never watched before makes me very excited about the potential of the season.

How are you guys feeling about the season so far? Excited yet?  As always, for more updates you can follow me @ashes2ashes13 on twitter.  Until tomorrow night...

Big Brother 16 Cheat Sheet - Feeds Reveal All

We are just past the two hour mark of the live feeds and already we know almost everthing we could want.  Alliances are still being figured out but thats about it.  Here are the highlights of things we've come up with so far from listening to the house guests talk.....

  • Caleb apparently had to choose from the 1st 8 HGs for nominations - he picked Donny and Paola - the first guy and girl eliminated from their HoH competition.
  • Frankie apparently had to pick from the 2nd 8 HGs and chose the 1st two people eliminated from the 2nd HoH competition - Victoria and Brittany.
  • It seems that Brittany and Victoria defeated Donny and Paola in the first Battle of the Block competition so they were un-nominated and Frankie was dethroned as HoH.
  • There was a Have Not competition (I think) today and Hayden, Joey, Brittany and Cody are Have Nots.
  • Power of Veto Competition is tomorrow.  Caleb, Donny, Paola, Victoria, Cody, and Zach are participating.
  • There is a showmance between Hayden and Nicole.
  • Caleb has a BIG crush on Amber.
  • Zach and Frankie seem to have a pretty solid alliance and are working to set up side alliances.
  • The HGs sound like the entered the house either last Thursday or Friday.  I am currently assuming Thursday based on what they said and an outside source that heard that was the correct day.

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 2 Recap

Last night, we were introduced to eight new contestants, viewed a HOH competition handed by Amber to Frankie, and heard some (but not all) details about various twists. Tonight, we do it all over again, and hopefully by the end of the hour a LOT of questions will be answered about the dual HOH winners.

Julie opens in the studio last night, and just in case you forgot what happened 24 hours ago, we get a recap of last night’s show. Why do they do this?

It’s now time to meet the next group of eight house guests. We start off with Victoria, the photographer. She’s from Israel, and moved to America when she was eight. She’s “orthodox, but we don’t dress it”. She says that it’s easy for her to manipulate guys. “Victoria gets what Victoria wants.”

Up next is Caleb, a good ol’ boy who calls himself a “mextrosexual country boy”. Some days he wears cowboy boots, but other days he whips out the hair gel. “Next thing I know, I look like Robin Thicke out there.” Sure you do.

Third up is Brittany, who is flaunting her body in a swimsuit as she talks about how she just escaped a ten year marriage. Big Brother is going to be the start of a “whole new start”. Actually, the last word was cut off thanks to crappy editing. She has three kids, who are so important that she’s going to leave them for three months.

Christine is next up, and we meet her while she’s working as a barista. She loves her job because she gets to meet so many people, and knows everything about everybody that comes in. She’s married, but instead of the short, chubby guys she generally dated, her husband is super-skinny. She’s also a huge Big Brother fan, and she thinks that everybody is going to trust her because she’s so nice.

Everybody thinks Derrick is a college kid, but he’s actually a cop that has worked undercover in the past. He says there’s “nothing in the house that can throw me off my game”.

Zach is a recent college grad, and he’s currently unemployed. He says he doesn’t need any friends. “They serve no purpose.” He’s looking forward to lying, and lying some more in the Big Brother house. “I tell people how it is, and I don’t care what the consequences are.” We see a picture of him with a black eye after he did such a thing.

Jocasta is shown preaching as she’s introduced. “I’m your minister, and your motivational speaker from the church house.” She’s a mother of two, and she’s an “awesome mom because God gave them to me”.  

The pedicab driver, Hayden, is next. He’s the “goofy, funny kid” everybody is going to love. “I’m going to be friends with everyone.” He believes that people will underestimate him because he looks like a hippie, but he was actually on the dean’s list. Then why are you driving a pedicab?

Just like last night, we now get the fake footage of everybody having an hour to pack. This is worthless, except for one nice little tidbit. “My past is my past”, says Jacosta. “I’ve done a lot of things. I’ve done a lot of people; men, women. But God made me (and) transformed me into the person I am.” Hmmm, does she have a wild side? Oh, we also find out that Christine is a nudist, and wishes she could live naked on Big Brother.

Like last night, we now see them on stage being given the “expect the unexpected” speech from Julie. They all act shocked to find out that the other eight are already in the house, and that there’s already a HOH. Julie goes on to inform them that there will be one more HOH crowned tonight, but “by the end of the week there will only be one HOH standing”.

Jacosta, Caleb, Christine, and Hayden are sent into the house first, and it’s the usual screemfest that you would expect. Christine is excited to be on her favorite show, but Caleb is more excited about the “hotties”. He especially likes Amber, who he says is “taking a big bite of my cake right now”. Jacosta is most concerned about where she’s going to sleep, and rushes around to find a suitable bed. “”Who the heck am I sleeping with?”

Oh God, Hayden tells Devin that he looks like the Rock. This is something he said about himself last night, and I just don’t see it! Hayden also thinks Amber looks like Whitney Houston (wtf?), and that Cody looks like John Travolta. Somebody get this guy some glasses!

The other four are now sent in by Julie, and it’s not much different than the earlier entrance. People jump up and down, and there’s screaming. Zach seems confused but “I don’t give a damn about meeting these people”. I think I do like him. Frankie, meanwhile, bonds with Victoria, who loves him because he has pink hair and she’s wearing a pink dress. Yes, that’s what she said. Nicole is worried that the new people are going to change the bonds that have already been established.

They all move into the kitchen to introduce each other over jars of champagne. Victoria thinks she’s the hottest girl in the house, while Joey loves Christine. Derrick lies about his job, saying that he works in Parks and Rec. In the diary room, Donny admits he’s going to have a hard time remembering the names of the new people. Cody, meanwhile, is shocked to find out that Brittany’s hot body has bore three kids. Red flags go up to Frankie over Cody’s country background.

After commercials, the bonding continues. The pink twins talk about religion, and Frankie says that he’s doing it because he needs a friend on the “other side” of the house. They agree to work together. Pow Pow wants to find out more about Caleb to see if he’s a “threat to my game”. She tells him that she’s a “really straight up person”, and Caleb replies that he knows hot to read people. He says that he is going to win the upcoming HOH because he’s not the type to throw competitions. Pow Pow is worried.

As a bunch of them are sitting around trying to think of something to do, Donny suddenly unveils his special talent! No, not that type of talent. He can imitate a cricket! He claims in the diary room that he’s “distractin’”. He claims that he doesn’t want people to think he’s good at the game. “I want people to think I’m funny.” Interesting.

Frankly, I’m kind of tired of these nonsensical conversations, although Zach and Frankie already seem to have some issues with each other. Actually, I kind of love the Zach is poking a bit at him. “Zach, here’s an idea for you”, says Frankie in the diary room. “Maybe you shouldn’t be pissing off the new HOH in the very first conversation you have with him.” I love it!

After another commercial break, it’s now time for the second HOH competition. Jacosta is shown praying before she heads out to kick some ass. They walk out to a setup that is pretty similar to last night’s. It’s that same revolving barrel with a different background. This one has a pig roast, tiki party background, and it’s called “Over the Coals”. They’re draped around the “spit”, and the last one hanging onto it is the winner.

Cue the cheesy music as they start revolving, and this is a competition that is definitely designed for big, tall people. Victoria is the first to fall, mainly because she’s “too pretty” to do this competition. Frankie is bummed.

Julie cuts in to announce that a “BBQ isn’t complete without a little BBQ sauce”. Brittany almost immediately falls after they squirt the sauce all over them, followed by Jacosta and Christine.

Now it’s only the guys left, and Zach purposely drops. Derrick goes next, and he says that he “proved” he’s a strong player but didn’t have to get blood on his hands. It’s now between Hayden and Caleb, and they’re still at it as we go to a break.

We return to the two of them spinning and spinning, and Caleb starts showing off. Finally, Hayden falls, but I’m impressed. Caleb hugs him, and tells Hayden that he’s safe this week.

Julie has them all head back to the living room, and Frankie says that he knows that he now has to work with Caleb. Julie then tells them that every week there will be two HOH’s who will each nominate two people. “In a Big Brother first”, there’s a new comp called “Battle of the Block”. Frankie’s two nominees will battle Caleb’s two nominees, and the winning duo will be safe from nomination. The losing HOH will be dethroned, and can be then put up in a veto situation. “You can go from being HOH to being evicted”, Julie explains. Obviously, they’re all shocked. In case you’re unclear of that, we get a run of people in the diary room telling you that exact thing.

After one last break, Julie again explains the America, Fuck Yeah twist. The winner of the first online vote, and the first to Team America, is then shown coming into the diary room. Shockingly, it’s Joey! Wait, Joey! Nothing against her, but why would people vote for one of the most anonymous people in the house! Oh, and every mission they win the Team America threesome will get five thousand bucks.

We get a bunch of promos for live feeds, Jeff Schroeder, and Big Brother After Dark before Julie wraps up the show. That’s all folks! What did you think of the episode? Do you like the HOH twist? What about these eight fools? Tell us what you think!
