The Night Owl - Thursday Night

Well, compared to past weeks, today/tonight were actually kind of eventful in the Big Brother house! In my blog last night I mentioned that I was not sure what the jurors coming back into the house was going to mean for us.  We found out early today on the feeds.  After a "Time For A Luxury Comp" announcement was posted on the sign in the living room, around 11:36 all the HGs were locked in the HOH room to watch the screen and the jurors were all turned loose in the house and started sabotaging it.

The feeds then cut for the luxury comp.  After the feeds returned, the jurors were gone and the remaining HGs were VERY salty about what had happened to the house.  Apparently the luxury comp involved each juror playing for one of the people in the house (except Christine who did not get picked).  The jurors had to look for a chip in the house that represented 10k and then that juror would get $5k and the person they were playing for got $5k. Hayden won and he was playing for Victoria.  You would THINK that winning $5k would make Victoria at least momentarily happy, but ohh no.  She and Frankie bitched, whined, and complained for hours.  Victoria decided that because the jurors destroyed the house, they must be very very bitter, mean, and hateful.  It never seemed to occur to she, Frankie, or Caleb that they were SUPPOSED to come into the house and do that.  Apparently at some point during the comp, Jocasta poured out trash in the kitchen, some people's personal clothes were thrown around, and Christine stomped on something.  Victoria's name got scratched out in the bathroom, and I'm sure we all have a good idea who did that one.  She is very upset about it, but if I were her I wouldn't be so proud of myself next time I chopped up my own hat if I didn't want any repercussions.

Frankie was very very upset about the whole thing because in his mind the jurors have no business being able to come into "HIS" house and hurt him and the the people he loves by touching their things and taking money from them.  In his own words: "We are the beasts of the house! We have earned our way here and fought our dicks off to get them evicted and now they are taking our money that WE deserve!"  Rants like this went on until it was time for nominations.

Nominations happened and Caleb nominated Frankie and Victoria.  Frankie is the target, but he didn't know that at the time.  After the ceremony everyone was pretty ok about things except for Frankie moping around and telling Derrick and Cody that he was a little pissed at Caleb for not telling him he was going up after everything he has done for all of them.

Caleb and Frankie then played a game of pool together, and Caleb just cannot lie to save his life.  When confronted by Frankie on why he was nominated, instead of just telling him he is the pawn and leaving it at that like he is supposed to, he told him he was the pawn but ALSO got put up because he, Cody, and Derrick had talked and decided that Frankie might use the veto on Victoria if he was off the block, so they decided to put him up.  Frankie then went into self victimizing mode about all he has done for everyone and how he has done nothing but play with honesty and integrity blah blah blah...

Cody and Derrick eventually entered the tail end of the conversation once the damage had been done and Frankie had decided that he couldn't trust Cody or Derrick.  After exiting the conversation, Cody went into the storage room to rant to himself for a few minutes before going and trying to cover his ass with Frankie, and Derrick went and laid in the hammock mumbling to himself about how Caleb talks too much.

So now everyone is awkwardly studying the memory wall for the veto comp and hanging out together.  I think they are all (including Frankie) aware that Frankie is the target even though they are all pretending not to know.  I think Frankie is going to fight like crazy for that veto now that he knows he is really in danger.  It will be interesting to see if he pulls it off or if the pressure of actual danger causes him to actually lose this one.

I think the veto comp will likely be played tonight (Friday night) since the morph comp is almost always a night comp, and they will likely get the veto out of the way and then the ceremony on Sunday before the taping of the eviction on Monday.  So Frankie's possible eviction all comes down to whether or not he wins veto tonight. We shall see what happens.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl - Weds Night

Hey guys! So, it's been a while.  With last week being the week that didn't count, I didn't see much point in posting a lot of "what ifs" and "might have beens", but now, per the rewind, the week has started again and this time it counts.

When the feeds came back from the HOH comp, which was the seeds comp again, we found out that Caleb had won HOH this time instead of Frankie.  Derrick quickly went to work on him trying to convince him that he needs to put up Frankie and Victoria with Frankie being the target.  Caleb shrunk back at the idea of putting Frankie on the block right off the bat.  He wanted to put up Derrick and Victoria first so that Frankie wouldn't want veto as badly (even though he would probably still fight just as hard because he knows he is in danger) and they could backdoor him later.  Caleb then went and told Cody that he would be putting up Derrick and Victoria and then unless Frankie won veto, Frankie would be going up.

Cody went and talked to Derrick, and Derrick was of course having none of this.  He told Cody that Cody needed to go and talk to Caleb and explain how Frankie could use the veto on Victoria and then one of them would be going home.  Frankie had to remain loyal to the 4 last week because he could not play for HOH this week, but now that he CAN play for HOH in the next competition, he doesn't have to remain loyal and could save Victoria if he wanted to and leave Cody and Derrick sitting next to each other on the block.

Ultimately Cody never had to talk to Caleb because Derrick ended up speaking with him and telling him to put Frankie up and if Frankie wins POV and comes off the block, THEN he can put Derrick up beside Victoria and they will all vote Victoria out.  Caleb agreed pretty quickly because Caleb pretty much always agrees with the last person in his ear, so that is where things stand right now.

Unless Frankie pulls something major out of his butt tonight or in the morning, he and Victoria will be the nominees and Frankie will be the target unless he wins the Morph comp again.  I do not know exactly what Julie meant when she said that the jurors would be returning to the house.  At first I thought maybe it would be as a distraction in the veto comp or something, but according to what she said, the veto comp will not be aired until Tuesday on the eviction show, and the returning jurors thing was said to be happening Sunday. Whether we will see whatever it is on the feeds or not is completely unknown to me, but I sure hope so.  It would have to be better than the "rat in the house" task of the "dog for a day" thing.

Derrick has assured Victoria that she should relax because he is winning the veto comp this week, and they have all been studying the wall for the morph comp.  If Frankie wins, Victoria likely goes. If Frankie doesn't win, he will likely be evicted. As always you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 on twitter for more overnight updates.  Until next time....

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 35 Results

Caleb won HOH after the Wednesday live show, and this time it counts. That is the one and only thing which happened during the last six days which wasn't meaningless, insulting drivel.

By saving the "Rewind" twist for this late in a season so thoroughly dominated by one house guest who has never even been nominated, CBS pretty much hocked a loogie at all Big Brother fans, both new and long-time. Why would you tell viewers in advance that there will be absolutely nothing happening for a week which will affect the game's outcome?

Do you think the remaining house guests are interesting enough to watch just because it's fun and we like them? It isn't and we don't.

Why should anybody have bothered to watch these last Sunday and Tuesday episodes? Honestly, why should anybody bother to watch any more #BB16 at all. Except maybe the finale.

Executive producer Allison Grodner, you should be ashamed! The international editions of Big Brother are so much more imaginitive and entertaining than your show. I'm still a newbie ... but determining that, say, Big Brother Australia is superior to the CBS version requires only to watch one episode on-line. Your "most twisted season ever" has been exactly the opposite. Dull, predictable, boring. You re-use so many competitions from previous years that the #BB16 house guests know exactly what's coming. The "Rewind" twist might have stirred things up, but you brought it on about four weeks too late.

Oh, and please skip the gimmicky former house guest interviews and engagements. You wouldn't need filler if your formula wasn't broken!

By the way, this isn't Scott writing this -- it's John. My fellow contributors Scott and Ash are the "A team" around here. But what's left of this season is not deserving of the efforts of Big Brother Gossip's starting players. They have more than earned a respite from this nonsense.

Déjà vu all over again.So I'm just providing the results of the Wednesday live episode, not a play-by-play recap like Scott writes. In a nutshell, here's what happened:

  • Julie called for a live eviction vote. But just as Derrick was about to enter the Diary Room, a klaxon sounded and the lights flashed.
  • Julie explained to the house guests that the last week was meaningless, Victoria and Cody were no longer on the block, and the game would rewind to last Thursday's HOH competition ... which would be repeated. The very same "Seed Saw" comp. Derrick would again not be eligible to compete (since he was outgoing HOH last time around).
  • Cody will have to wear the dino-costume again since he was still wearing it a week ago.
  • The repeat "Seed Saw" competition began during the live show and was in progress as the episode ended. When the live feeds came back about 45 minutes later, we determined that Caleb won HOH.

Upcoming schedule:

Sunday's episode (Sep. 14, 2014) starts at 8:30p.

Next Tuesday (Sep. 16), there be a special eviction episode. (It won't be live.)

Next Wednesday (Sep. 17) will be live with another eviction.

There will be an episode on Friday (Sep. 19) but no episode the following Sunday (Sep. 21).

The only thing left after that is the live season finale on Wednesday (Sep. 24) at 9:30p.

If #BB15 last year when I was new had been as much of a yawn-fest and as poorly-produced as #BB16, would I have stuck around? Hell no! I am astonished that the ratings have apparently held up this year. It is disheartening, to say the least. I hope that Grodner (or some future executive producer) changes the formula before the show tanks ... because it will, sooner rather than later. And ... that's all I've got. Comments welcome below (or don't bother, since this season just isn't worth it) or @uselesstraffic.

Big Brother 16 Recaps: An Apology

Just a quick note here to let you guys know that there will not be recaps tonight, tomorrow, and probably next Sunday. No, I haven't given up on the season. There's a couple of reasons why this is happening.

Given my success in predicting Sunday's episode, I gave some thought about returning to that gimmick for the next two shows. As I said on Sunday, this week doesn't matter anyway thanks to that "rewind" button. Tonight will include a meaningless veto comp, speculation on the button, and the worst Team America mission ever. Tomorrow night will include meaningless game talk from the nominees, some jury house footage, a visit from a dog, and Julie's announcement that the week didn't count. A new HOH will be played, which may or may not end before the episode's conclusion.

Notice I didn't say there would be an eviction tomorrow night. As many of us have speculated on twitter, it appears that Julie's announcement will come right after the halfway mark of the broadcast. There's not enough time to run through a new HOH, noms, Veto, and eviction. Just like on Big Brother 14 when the coaches voted to become players, we will go almost another week before the next eviction.

This allows the show to carry on the tradition of a "surprise" eviction to go from five players to four next Tuesday, which will probably be filmed on Monday. I know, this sucks, but they do this because it's hard to fill those last few episodes. With jury footage and the dog, they have enough material to make it through tomorrow's broadcast. 

Back to my reason for no recaps, though. I honestly just don't have time. This is a big week for me, as I'm travelling to Minneapolis to see the Replacements this Saturday. Besides the show, I'm cohosting a benefit party on Friday night for former Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap, who suffered a stroke two years ago. Some of this party will be broadcast on my live internet radio show, Live Ledge, on realpunkradio.com on Friday night from 7-9 pn ET. Due to this party, I have to break down my little homemade broadcast studio to haul with me on this trip. Because of this, along with other obligations, I don't have time to devote to these two episodes that don't really matter anyway. I'll be driving back on Sunday, but may not make it back in time for that night's episode. (Oh yeah, and there won't be a live Big Brother Gossip Show this Saturday, but Mike is working on our own version of a "best of" recording.)

I apologize for missing these episodes, but this concert is something that I've been waiting for since they broke up in 1991. I'll be back for the last handful of shows, and our podcast's season finale on September 20!
