The Night Owl - Friday Night

Well, tonight is really slow and most of the HGs are asleep right now.  I don't know if they are down for the count, but it's looking like they might be.  The only people awake are Zach (shocking, right?), Jocasta, Donny, Nicole, Victoria, and Christine.  Most are doing their own thing or just chit chatting, so I'm going to give you the nomination and BOB results and call it a night.

The nomination ceremony happened early in the afternoon and Cody nominated Victoria and Brittany as expected while Frankie nominated Amber and Jocasta.  After the nominations, Brittany went into her default "I deserve to be here more than Zach or Nicole or anyone else without kids" thing to Amber and Jocasta.  Amber kind of nodded and agreed with her as Amber does when she is talking to most people, and Jocasta gave some kind of "be strong" sermon.  This all took place in the bathroom if that makes it any more amusing.

Brittany also went after Victoria and basically accused her of making a deal to throw the competition.  She told her that she was going to end up being the next Paola and picked at her for a while.  Victoria was, as always, completely confused about what was happening and just told Brittany that she thought they could win. 

But, shortly after that, the BOB was played and Victoria and Brittany did not win making them the nominations stuck on the block and keeping Cody as HOH (YES! NO FRANKIE HOH!).   Everything sense then has mostly been Brittany talking about how she is done with everyone and how unfair it is.  She keeps saying she won't throw Victoria under the bus because that's not her and she is the most honest player in the house (as if that's something that gets you anywhere in BB). 

Meanwhile Amber has also been running her mouth a little, and Frankie, Christine, and some others have been embellishing some of the things she has been saying.  Christine announced to all the Detonators alliance plus Nicole in the HOH room that Amber was rallying up the girls (Brittany and Jocasta) to take the boys out.  Derrick said it doesn't really matter because Brittany is a leg of that and unless she wins the POV she is going home this week.

Zach also heard the things that both Amber and Brittany had been saying about him, and is really annoyed with Amber and wants to confront her, but is curiously picking Donny's brain about the idea of voting out Victoria instead of Brittany.  He is telling Derrick and his alliance that he will vote with the house, but talking to Donny about possibly not voting with the house.  It's yet to be determined if he is just playing a game to amuse himself, or if he really just wants Victoria out THAT badly.

We really won't know anything until after POV is played today though.  If Brittany (or Victoria) win POV, Donny is expected to go up on the block.  If anyone else wins POV nominations are likely to stay the same and Brittany will most likely get voted out unless she works some crazy magic.  The good news is that Brittany is extremely dramatic, so this could be a very entertaining week.  As always, you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  I will post a follow up if things get crazy while I'm still up.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl - Thursday Night

Well we have new Dual HOHs.. Cody and....(cringe) Frankie.  As soon as the feeds returned after the HOH competition tonight, Frankie was already screaming, singing, and carrying on with many "OMGs" and "I'm SOOOO HAPPPYs". 

The scrambling started almost immediately because shortly after the competition Frankie was told about the new Team America mission.  The new mission is for the three members to get a person they consider a physical threat nominated.  Frankie and Derrick immediately decided that Amber would work for this since she was likely going to be nominated anyway, but the catch was that they all had to agree on the nomination and at this time they had not talked to Donny yet.  Frankie, Derrick, Zach, andCody decided that as the four nominees they wanted Amber, Brittany, Jocasta, and Victoria.  Derrick told Zach and Frankie both that they really needed to have Brittany and Amber on opposite teams so that one of them could stay up and have the option of remaining the target.  The problem started when Frankie told Derrick that he did not want to be the one to put up Amber because he wants to remain HOH and Amber will likely win the BOB competition.  The thing is, Cody can't put up Amber without blowing up his game because Amber is one of his closest friends in the house.

While the scrambling and general talk was going on, Brittany first went and cried to Donny about possibly being put up and then went and cried for a while by herself in the Rock Room.  Also during this time a tiff broke out about the bed situation.  It's almost too difficult to explain, so I'll just say it all mostly comes down to the fact that no one wants to sleep with Victoria.  Frankie made plans for Caleb to sleep in his HOH bed with him and Zach is sleeping in Cody's HOH room, so that left 2 extra spots in The Rock room for people to have their own beds.  Brittany normally sleeps in The Rock Room with Cody and Zach, but at some point I THINK (I'm unclear on the details) Nicole tried to push Victoria off on Brittany for once since Nicole, Christine, and Frankie have all been having to sleep with her for almost the whole season...and apparently she cuddles very inappropriately. The whole thing came to a head in the kitchen between Brittany and Nicole, but all I really saw was Brittany snapping at Nicole about it being "Fine!".  After that Nicole went and talked to Donny about it and then Derrick.  I'm sure she will be happy to see Brittany be one of the nominations in the morning.

Shortly after all this it was time for the HOH rooms to be revealed. Cody got a letter from his dad, but it was quickly overshadowed by all of Frankie's squeals and shreiks about the things he got in his HOH basket, plus the letter he got from his sister "Ari".  All pictures of her in his HOH room were convieniently of her as a baby of course.

While the HOH room was being revealed, the Have Nots got to become haves again and had their feast.  Eventually Zach and Derrick joined them and left the rest of the crew to hang out in the HOH.  This stand off between everyone went on and on and is still kind of happening as I write this.

Derrick and Frankie both eventually got to Donnie and had a quick Team America meeting with him in the Have Not room.  Donny agreed that putting Amber up as the Physical threat would be perfect because she won that HOH and has come very close to winning quite a few other physical comps as well as winning last weeks BOB.  So now all they have left to do is each go to the DR and confirm that Amber is their target for nomination and then get her nominated (easy since the plan was to nominate her already).

After Donny left the room, Derrick talked for a minute to Frankie about the fact that Cody cannot be the person to nominate Amber.  Frankie resisted at first saying he didn't want to be the one to nominate her because of what Caleb would think (and also because he wants to keep the HOH and Amber might win I'm sure) But he eventually agreed that he would be willing to nominate Amber and Jocasta and let Cody be the one to nominate Victoria and Brittany.

A little later Brittany managed to catch Frankie downstairs and started her traditional cry in front of the HOH to try and keep from getting nominated thing.  Frankie asked her what she thought he should do for the house.  Brittany threw out Nicole and Christine because they are a pair, and then Zach joined them in the Hive Room.  He said that he wanted Victoria nominated of course.  And then, as Victoria always seems to do as soon as her name is mentioned, she bombed the conversation and that was the end of that.

Currently it's 6am here and everyone is still hanging out in the HOH room minus a few like Donny who have gone to bed, and I don't see this breaking up any time soon.  The chit chat is going between Devin bashing, Victoria's inappropriate touching, and food challenges.  I imagine at SOME point this morning Frankie and Cody will get together and talk about who is nominating who.  If all goes as planned now, Frankie should be nominating Amber and Jocasta and Cody should be nominating Vicotria and Brittany.  I'm hoping like crazy Amber pulls out a win in the BOB. Not because I really care if she stays or goes, but because I think a week of Frankie being HOH might actually kill me.  It's already intolerable and it hasn't even been 12 hours.

I'm also hoping for some good fireworks either pre or post nominations this morning and either before or after the BOB competition, so I'm going to call it an early night in hopes that I catch some good stuff today.  As always,  you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates. Until tomorrow night...

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 11 Recap

After last night’s experiment with “positive blogging”, I’m ready to go back to my patented mode of snark and whine. Be very afraid, my friends, as I clearly have built up a lot of complaints to share.

Before the show begins, though, let me announce a special drinking game that I announced on twitter last night. With Devin on the block, and a 90% certainty of being evicted, my plan is guaranteed to get you hammered in less than ten minutes. In fact, keep this episode on your DVR for future use!

Here’s how it works. Between the time that Devin gives his final plea to the house up until the conclusion of his interview with Julie Chen, take a drink anytime he says the word “daughter”. I guarantee that he’ll say it at least 20 times, so you should be good and plastered before the HOH competition.

I’m actually kind of sad to see him go tonight. I hate the man. Hate, hate, hate. He’s a clown. But this season is so boring that the only current possibility of fireworks comes from the failed minor leaguer. Sure, there’s also the running Amber/Caleb controversy, but that has moved from entertaining to almost criminal. Caleb needs some serious help, and his attitude towards women is the most disappointing aspect of this season.

See what I mean about having plenty of bile to share? There’s bound to be more, as I haven’t even mentioned the two biggest wastes of spaces in the house. I’ll let you all guess who I’m talking about here.

Ok, let’s get going with tonight’s broadcast, and the replacement of Jocasta (zzzzz) with Devin as nominee. A tearful Jocasta and Donny hug, and pose with the veto necklace. Donny says it was a “nobrainer” because “she’s a close friend in the house, (and) she was sick and couldn’t fight for herself. I felt like it was my duty to fight for her.” Jocasta replies with “Praise God”.

Caleb hugs Jocasta and admits it was risky for him to volunteer to go up, but it Devin goes home it could be his “biggest move in the house”. If it doesn’t work, though, it will be “the dumbest move in Big Brother history. At this point, it’s all in the house guests hands.” Nice reading of the cue cards, Caleb.

Devin also works at reading the cue cards to make us believe he still has a shot of survival. For those that don’t watch the live feeds, he doesn’t. This entire segment is bullshit. The moment that Devin was put up, it was clear that he was going home. There was very little talk of saving him, and Devin only made a token effort to campaign. All of this is for the sake of TV.

Jocasta is still crying, and she tearfully thanks Donny and says in the diary room that she hopes to repay the favor. “I’m so happy.”

We now see Amber crawl into bed in the Have-not room, and Caleb gets up and puts a blanket over her. She gets up a bit later and walks out of the room, and Caleb puts down another blanket on her bed. “The things you do for people when you like them”, he tells Hayden, who is sleeping on the next bed. “I put myself on the block. I give up my only two covers I got. I think at the end of the day, I’ll win a date with her.” Caleb rolls over, and Hayden looks up at the camera and says, “what?” We’re all thinking the same thing, hippie boy.

Who the hell is this girl? The next day, Donny and Cody are talking about Caleb. “He’s proven to not really be a competitor like he says he is”, complains Cody. “His game is so blurred by her that he doens’t make proper decision.” Donny agrees that putting himself on the block was a stupid move. Cody adds in the diary room that he thinks he may be able to conjure up the votes to eliminate Caleb. (Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit. He barely made this attempt.) The conversation continues as he tells Donny that this would be a good time to get rid of him. Donny does agree, and adds in the diary room that he’ll do anything for her. “If she wants someone out, he’ll back her. If she gets put on the block, he’ll protect her.”

A bunch of boys are now playing pool, and Victoria comes out in a butt-revealing bikini. They all holler at her “what’s your name”, but they’re not kidding. “Seriously, what’s your name?” asks Hayden in the diary room.

Amber and Cody are now talking in the have-not room. He’s even rubbing her knee as they talk about being friends. “I’ve been waiting for you to do this.” Once again, Caleb is “creeping around” them as they talk, and Cody is getting annoyed.

Cody is now playing pool with Derrick, and tells him about how annoyed he’s getting by these actions. Derrick claims to think that Caleb is starting to become a “big liability”, and Zach joins in the conversation. “Caleb hates you...because Amber likes you.” Zach says this threesome could possibly hurt his game, and once again we’re led to believe it’s possible that Caleb is going home. HE’S NOT!!!

Ugh, another cutesy segment with Hayden and Nicole, as they cuddle in the bedroom. Seriously, I’m getting sick of this nightly segment. Let’s move on as they continue to talk about kissing. Just do it and get it over with. They can’t, though, as Victoria walks in.

Now Devin is talking about the Miami Heat with Devin, and we get our first “daughter” of the night. I guess this is Devin’s mode of survival - bore people with talk about his kid. Oh, and his addictions, since he also talks about rehab. Cody tells us in the diary room that he is starting to like Devin, and that he just got lost in the early days of the game.

Cody moves on to talk to Zach about Devin, and says he had a dream about Caleb going home. “Do we send Caleb home?” Zach says that this may be a great idea, and to make it seem possible we see him talk to Frankie about that very idea. “It’s a good move. He’s letting a girl cloud his judgment.” Frankie moves on to talk to Christine about this possibility, and ends up asking Derrick about doing this. Derrick asks where this idea came from? “The move is in motion”, replies Frankie. Derrick doesn’t seem to think this is a bad idea either.

Come on, CBS. You literally took every conversation about evicting Caleb over a four day period and made it look like it was going to happen. This is creative editing; even more so than usual from this network.

After commercials, we get to meet Donny’s family. Unfortunately, it’s hosted by awful Jeff Schroeder, so I’m not really paying attention. Too bad, as they seem fascinating, especially as they laugh at Caleb (just like the rest of America). Ok, I did actually watch, as the entire family all tear up while they watch highlights.

Ok, it’s now time for Julie to talk to the house. Guess who she goes to first? Yes, Nicole and her stupid frog costume. Jocasta is asked how she’s feeling, and she says much better. She’s also asked about Donny saving her with the veto, and she says that it was great for her since she felt so down. Oh yeah, and there are lots of “praise Jesus”. Zach is then asked about living with so many people, and he replies that he hates them all. Hayden is asked what is the worst part of being a have-not, and he says nothing. “I love it. Is Survivor still hiring.” Julie then announces that there will be no have-nots this week, and they all cheer until she adds “expect the unexpected”. After signing off, she explains that the Fitbit stats will determine the next group. The lazy asses will be punished!

It’s now time to see who (Devin) goes home. Caleb gets to make the first final plea, and he thanks God and his family. He babbles about him and Devin being beasts, and the toughest competitors (despite Donny’s lead in comp wins), but he’s not a “liar or cheater”. He repeats “at the end of the day” a few times, and, of course, we get a couple more “beast mode cowboy” silliness.

Devin then stands up and says he’s had some “highs and lows in the game”. He asks the house if they’d rather play with somebody who “made a final two pact with Amber, and has proven he will do whatever it takes to protect her, including nominating himself for eviction. Or would you rather have somebody like me who is willing to admit his faults (and) right his wrongs, even if that means using a veto on somebody he’s nominated.” He admits that Caleb is a physical beast, but “I’m a physical and mental monster. I would carry any one of you down to the finals.” Wow, that was a fantastic plea! Great job, even though it won’t work.

Voting now begins with Jocasta, who votes to evict Devin, as does Donny, Nicole, and Hayden. Time for more commercials before Zach, Cody, Victoria (who?), Frankie, Amber, Christine, and Brittany. Yes, it’s unanimous, and proof that the entire ten minutes we saw earlier was a waste of time. There was never a real move to save Devin.

Julie announces the vote to the house, and Devin tucks in his shirt before hugging the house. Once he’s gone, though, they’re not as quiet about celebrating as in past weeks. In fact, they barely look at the memory wall. Julie asks what he was handed as he walked out the door, and it tunes out Brittany made him a tin foil heart. Ugh. “But she didn’t give you a vote”, replies Julie, but Devin says he wasn’t surprised. “It’s been proven in the past that people who play hard tend to go early.”

Julie moves on to the demise of the Bomb Squad, and he admits to feeling paranoid while in the HOH room. The side moves that didn’t include him made him feel like they were turning against him, so he “decided to put some little (targets) on everybody else”. Julie follows up by asking about his daughter watching, which leads to silliness about honesty and integrity. Come on, Devin. Julie moves on to talk about Donny, and the various things that people have theorized about him. Devin still wonders about that, and is surprised to find out that he really is a groundskeeper.

The final pleas end the segment, and Jocasta says it’s great that he gets to see his daughter. Caleb says he’s a great guy, but put his friends in danger. Zach says he’s possibly the worst player in history “because your social game was awful”. Ha! Donny talks about how he “done him wrong the first week”, but wants him to have fun with his daughter. That’s it for Devin!

Julie jumps right into the HOH competition, and they all have to pair up into teams. They randomly drew for these teams, and here’s how they stack up. Victoria is with Christine, Caleb is with Nicole, Brittany is with Jocasta, Amber is with Zach, Donny is paired with Hayden, and Frankie and Cody are the final team.

There’s another advert break before we get to this competition, which is called “Devil’s Eggs”. They have to move eggs through chicken wire into slots, and the first to get all twelve is the winner. I have a feeling the winner will NOT be Victoria and Christine.

Frankie is the first to move an egg to his partner, with Amber and Zach a little behind. We suddenly get a live feed fish overlay for a second, and then Victoria and Christine pass their first egg.

Julie then cuts away to tease the second Team America (Fuck Yeah!) mission, and when we return we find out that this week’s bad idea is for them to somehow get a physical threat nominated. Yeah, whatever.

There’s one final look at the competition, but you’ll have to come back to this site later to find out who won. Currently, there’s a tie between Amber/Zach and Cody/Frankie. Before we cut away, we get the “elements” added to the game. This time, it’s falling ashes. Nobody really pays attention, though, as we go to credits.

So that’s it. Now tell me, my friends, is this a better way for me to post? More importantly, are you as upset with the selective editing as I am? Was the house smart to evict Devin over Caleb? Tell me what you’re thinking!

The Night Owl - Weds Night

As expected, today and tonight was a mixture of mini-scrambles and chats about the upcoming eviction, HOH competition, and who people within various alliances will nominate if they should win. 

Now that The Detonators alliance is solidified, there were a lot of chats between various members of that group about who to put up if two of their members should win.  All of them are a combination of people like Victoria/Jocasta/Brittany/and possibly Amber or Donny.

Donny had an interesting conversation with Caleb at the chess table tonight where he told Hayden that he trusted him completely but that Zach and Cody like to hang out with "the enemy".  Donny seems to consider the enemy to be Derrick.  He told Hayden that he knows that Derrick had to know that he was going to be nominated and that it wasn't just Nicole's decision this past week.  He also said he wouldn't mind seeing Derrick feel the block a little bit.

Derrick and Cody (now called The Hitmen) had a few discussions about who they would prefer up and out this week and also in the future.  The both agree that this week either Jocasta or Victoria or Brittany can go and that Donny could also go if they got the chance to send him out because they feel like that would leave Brittany and Jocasta pretty powerless. As far as future plans, they say after they get down to just the 5 in their alliance, they would like Frankie to be the first to go.  Derrick says Frankie makes him nervous with his game. (please please please let them go after him soon!)

Speaking of Frankie... Zach was back to his old bad habits of telling Frankie too many things tonight.  When Frankie pointedly asked him what the name of his alliance with Cody and Derrick was, he told him it was called Los Tres Amigos.  I'm pretty worried that Zach's trust in Frankie will be a big part of his demise in the game if he doesn't knock it off.  The two of them also had a really late night/early morning chat about alcohol and weed use and withdrawal.  It appears for now they are holding to their final 2 deal.  I don't expect Frankie to stick with that at all though. For the record, I also can't read Zach at this point when it comes to Frankie.  He agrees each and every time someone mentions wanting him to go soon and even adds his own reasons for not trusting him, but he still gives Frankie more info than he needs to when talking to him. I can't tell if he really does trust Frankie, or if it's just bad game play and saying too much on his part.  Either way, I hope it doesn't kill his game for him.

 

As far as game talk goes, that is mostly it. However, there were some insanely funny moments over the course of the night as well.  I am not even sure how the conversation started or how Zach ended up trapped with Caleb in the HOH room, but what followed was one of the most hilarious conversations I've heard in a while.  Caleb is very VERY sure that he is going to be very VERY famous when he leaves the BB house.  This hasn't been a secret or anything, but he really laid it all out there tonight.  There was much talk of airports and restaurants being alerted before he arrives in his limo and the appearances he will be willing to do.  Events like "Go hunting with the Beastmode Cowboy from BB 16", and let us not forget that when he comes into any town now, it will be on the front page of the paper.  There was also a lot of Amber talk in there about how he is done with her (and yet can't stop talking about her) and how he thinks she and Cody are the ones in a showmance right now.  I really don't know how Zach kept a straight face listening to all of this, but if you have the feeds, I highly suggest flashing back and listening to at least a little of it.  I believe the convo was around 11pm BB time.

I should also mention that before that conversation, there was a titilating conversation about Caleb's breasts being sore (see what I did there?) and going to the medic to have his estrogen levels checked.

After Zach escaped the conversation with Caleb, there was more hilarity down in the bathroom area when a few of the various HGs were sharing their "numbers"..sexually speaking, and being silly in general.  The most amusing part of the conversation was that it was in stark contrast to the literal Bible study going on merely feet away in the Hive Room. During this conversation, Christine and Zach also agreed that they should see if they could get the house to cheer louder than the audience when Devin walks out the door tomorrow night. 

That's about it for tonight. Everyone seems to be winding down for bed.  Most of them think today will bring an endurance comp.  I really don't know if it will or won't.  Usually we can tell in advance what kind of comps are likely to be coming, but this year with the two HOH twist, it's hard to know how they will play it.  I wouldn't mind seeing a good endurance comp, though I fear that Frankie may win one of the HOH spots if that happens... I hate to admit it, but he has the want to win one and I'm pretty sure he has the ability.  What I would LIKE to see happen would be some controversial HOHs and some controversial nominees so that we get a more interesting week.  With this safe easy get Devin out week, we didn't see very much action. 

We shall see what tomorrow brings after eviction. I still expect Devin to definitely go with a vote of either 11-0 or 9-2 if Christine and Nicole throw their wonky votes.  As always you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates. Until tomorrow night...

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 10 Recap (Bizarro World Version)

According to the comments section of my last recap, I’m a bit too negative in these reports. I apparently don’t like anything, and needlessly criticize everything.

These are not new complaints about my style. I’ve long understood that I’m a sarcastic creep. In response to this latest round of allegations, though, I’m going to try something new tonight. Since tonight’s episode is looking to be a bit predictable, I’m going to take a positive approach. There will be no snide comments. Nobody will be described in a negative light.

Let’s see how this works out.

The broadcast begins with the reactions to the Battle of the Block victory by Amber and Donny, and Nicole’s “disappearance”. Will she reappear? I sure hope so!

Oh there she is, back in the house in a frog costume! The house rushes in and laughs and laughs! She’s still worried, though, as she’s no longer safe this week. Hayden calls her a “cute frog”, and he’s a bit confused as usually he’s hitting on “hot girls but now I have to hit on a hot frog”. (This new method of reporting is already very tough.)

Derrick is obviously happy, and can’t wait to put up Devin. He’s just worried that Devin may play in the veto competition. Devin knows that he’s “solo in this game”, and that he’s the target. “I may be down but I’m not out.”

Frankie is now talking with Amber and Donny, telling them that they’re a great team. “It’s amazing what you can do when you combine a model with a country boy”, says Donny. “I even got a little kiss out of it. But I don’t want anybody to get the wrong idea. We’re just friends.”

Donny is still smiling on the living room couch as we now see Caleb leading Jocasta out of the diary room. She’s apparently deathly ill, and everybody rushes to see what’s wrong. She tells us about how she’s had stomach issues, and the heat of the competition made her immediately sick. We even get a toilet cam shot to show us just how sick she is. “I’m still on the block, and I guess I should be concerned about that. l’m not. I’m concerned about feeling better, and being able to walk without somebody helping me.” Poor girl. Just say no to laxatives!

Luckily, Caleb was there to save the day! We see him help tuck Jocasta into bed, and he is so concerned about her...and everybody else. “I wanted to make sure an ally, a friend, and Amber were safe, so I threw it. Hopefully, it doesn’t come around and bite me in the butt.”

Unfortunately, Caleb is also sad. We see him sitting outside in Amber’s slippers, telling her that he threw that comp for her. She didn’t want him to do that, though. “As a matter of fact, I told him not to. Not he thinks I owe him something or (he) expects something from me.”

Caleb says that she could be his date for the finale, and Amber comes right out and says no. “What else do I have to do?”, he replies. He doesn’t think she understands what he did for her, and she should appreciate that. Amber says that she doesn’t want to hurt his feelings, but she’s not going to change her mind. “If you’re not my date to the finale, I’m going to be mad”, he finally says.

Oh look, we get some more frog suit footage. Isn’t Nicole so cute? It looks SOOO much fun. Hayden even wants to kiss the cute frog, which impresses Brittany.

That was short and sweet, as we move to romantic music. Oh look, Cody is giving Amber a massage. How will this go over with Caleb? She says that Cody is “one of my favorite people”, and he replies that he gets “death stares” from Caleb whenever he gives her attention. She says that she just doesn’t think of Caleb in that manner, and is getting tired of the situation.

Caleb then walks out of the bedroom, giving that death stare as he walks by. “This is driving me crazy”, she says to Cody. “This is why I wish I had come in here at 350 pounds.” Caleb continues on up to the HOH. He’s not happy that a member of his alliance “put his hands on my home girl.” The “beast mode cowboy” is not happy with this.

The two move out to the chess board, and Caleb says that he thinks Cody has something going with Amber. “With this kid’s ego, he’ll come after me out of spite”, says Cody in the diary room. He tells Caleb that he would never go after another man’s girl, but Cody still thinks he’s automoatically Caleb’s main target.

Derrick then gives some advice to Caleb in the HOH, and is joined by Cody.They just have to get Caleb off the block, but Caleb walks out as quickly as possible. Talk turns immediately to possibly getting out Caleb instead. “This is our only shot to get him out”, says Cody. They both agree that Caleb is blinded by his obsession with Amber.

After some wonderful promotion of CBS broadcasts, it’s time for the Team America segment. Remember, the three Team America members have decided to create a rumor that Zach is related to last season’s Amanda. Donny starts off by talking to Nicole about this story, who then goes on to relate it to Christine. Derrick tells the same story to Caleb, who rushes off to tell Amber (just as Derrick planned).

The “crown jewel” is to tell Zach about the rumor, knowing that he’d rush off to tell EVERYBODY this story. He’s asked if it’s true, and after a delay he laughs and says no. He does as expected, though, and rushes around to tell everybody. He even claims that it’s true, which Nicole believes. Oh wait, there’s Victoria! She also believes the story. Good to see her on this episode!

Oh no, Jocasta is still sick. Donny is now taking care of her, leading her from the diary room back to the bedroom. “The poor thing is not going to be able to play in the veto competition”, says Donny.

It’s time to find out who is going to play, though. Because of Jocasta’s illness, there will only be five players. Derrick pulls the first chip, which belongs to Christine. Caleb then pulls out the worst possible pick - Devin! Derrick then pulls out Donny’s name “on Jocasta’s behalf”.

As you may imagine, Devin couldn’t be more pleased “to fight for my life”. Caleb says he “better bring his A game”. Derrick pulls Donny into the storage room to find out what he’d do if he won the veto. He tells Donny that his goal is to get out Devin, but Donny interrupts him to say that this is the third week that he’s “been out of the loop”. He adds in the diary room “that I’m not ready to show my cards yet”. Derrick admits that he’s still concerned that Donny has that “Double D” alliance with Devin.

After some more great commercials, it’s now time for Derrick of all people to “go into Beast Mode”. He paints his face, and the Rocky theme comes on as Devin and Caleb also get mentally and physically ready.

The funky music comes on, which means it’s veto competition time! It’s a Vegas casino setup, and Hayden reminds us that the “house always wins in Vegas”. The comp is called “Tumblin’ Dice”, and they have to roll some giant dice to match the number that comes up on a roulette wheel. Sound confusing? Yeah, it’s hard to explain in print.

The first pair to go against each other is Christine and Devin. They must go for the number four. Christine has trouble figuring out how to end up with that number, so obviously Devin wins.

Derrick is the next up, and he also challenges Devin. They must roll around and end up with a two, Derrick seems to take his time. In fact, at one point he was two moves away from winning before he started doing some wacky robot moves inside his dice. Devin beats him by a hair.

It’s now all up to Donny, which worries everybody!

But first, we get some more great CBS promos! Can Donny steal a victory from the professional athlete? He just wants to make his family proud. Devin and Caleb both still don’t believe he’s just a groundskeeper. While watching the other rounds, Donny says that he’s figured out how to win if it’s a 3, 4, or 5. Too bad it comes up a six! Devin goes out a full speed, but Donny takes his time because he has to “figure it out as I go”. Devin gets to the base, but he’s not at the right number, while Donny continues to go at his own pace. He then suddenly wins, and the entire house cheers! “I knew you weren’t a janitor”, says Caleb.

The competition is not over yet, though. The final round is Donny versus Caleb, and they must race to a two. Donny says that he already took out “one big bully. I want to take out both big bullies.” It doesn’t take long for Donny to completely smoke Caleb. “That was hashtag old man beatdown”, he says.

What will Donny do with that veto, though? We’ll find out after one more incredible commercial break.

It doesn’t take long for us to find out, as right after the adverts we see Donny race to Jocasta’s side. “Somebody’s not going home”, he tells her. She starts crying as everybody rushes in to console her. “Winning this veto for Jocasta means the world to me”, says Donny. “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” She says this moement made her feel a “hundred percent better”. I bet she felt two hundred percent after Cody came in and did a semi-striptease for her.

Devin is now seen in the have-not room all by himself. He says he doesn’t want the others to see him feel emotional, but all he’s thinking about is how he let down his daughter. “Every daughter looks at their father like a superhero. I wasn’t her superhero.”

Although we know what happens, Donny must still go through the veto ceremony motions. He even acknowledges that everybody should know what he’s doing, but the “house is so paranoid”. He brings everybody into the house, and announces that he is indeed saving Jocasta. “You were too sick to compete, and all I want is for you to get better.” She again breaks down in tears. Heavy wails, in fact.

Derrick has to name a replacement nominee, and as one would expect, it’s Devin. “On behalf of all the houseguests, Devin take a seat.”  

With that the episode ends, and I can now break out of this nice-nice persona. Can you now see why I do what I do? You can read a recap such as this on a million other sites. Don’t you like a little spice and opinion in these types of articles? There’s no way I can continue to write in that style. If you don’t like my opinions, please let me know and we can have an open discussion. Isn’t that what Big Brother fandom is all about?
