The Night Owl - Tuesday Night

Wow! There is just not enough popcorn in the world to watch these people! There is a lot of trivial bs that happened today, but I might as well get down to the meat of it or I'll be writing until next season. 

There was a lot of scrambling around and planning for votes to keep Zach in the house tonight.  There was a ton of conversations and switching around of votes.  Frankie and Christine wanted to make sure the votes were split so they could blame their votes on other people, so after a Team America meeting between Donny, Derrick, and Frankie, they decided that Donny would vote to keep Paola.  His vote plus Jocasta voting against Zach would be enough votes to cover Frankie, Christine, and Derrick.

But THEN, Derrick got an idea.  The whole week Derrick has been trying to figure out a way to have a united vote instead of a split vote. So, he decided to go talk to Caleb.  I have stated many times before that Derrick is magic, and tonight was no different.  He lulled Caleb into basically thinking that even though he was "voting to get rid of Zach"  he didn't want the BS to be caught with their pants down if Zach stayed anyway, so maybe it would be better to make up with him and vote to keep him and bring him back into the fold.  Caleb bought it... I don't know how, but he did.  If you have the feeds you should really flashback and watch the convo because it's impressive. So then Derrick went to coach Zach and tell him what to say to Caleb.

Zach talked to Caleb for a while.  He over sold his case and talked WAY too much as Zach always does, but Caleb was still under Derrick's spell and in the end promised him his vote, Amber's vote, and the other members of the Bomb Squad's votes (that Zach already had of course) in exchange for Zach's commitment to not go after Devin for 2 weeks (A deal he never intended to keep).  For a while everyone was completely united (except Devin and Paola of course) about keeping Zach.  And for a moment I thought maybe they would calm down and actually go to bed.

I would love to go into more detail about the afore mentioned conversations because they really were amusing, but Devin would not be Devin if he didn't steal the show.. so moving on to the even bigger part..

Frankie decided that he should be the one to tell Devin that Zach was staying in order to try and stay in good favor with Devin.  So he did.  And Devin. Wen. Crazy.  Devin decided he was out of the alliance and said he was done and that he was picking off everyone in the house one by one by one etc...

But what he actually did was go wake up Donny to tell him about the Bomb Squad.  Donny seemed completely unimpressed and didn't say much at all.

When Devin didn't get the reaction he wanted out of Donny, he decided to go and get Brittany and pull her up into the HOH to reveal the Bomb Squad to her. And he talked...and talked...and talked...and talked...and talked...and talked.  Integrity, Daughter, Bomb Squad, Zach's a woman abuser, Blah blah blah frickity blah. 

The most amusing part of the whole scenario is that even though Devin broke down HIS version of the BS, Brittany is apparently an undercover idiot and bought the entire thing.  She cried and carried on and talked about how "She KNEW IT!"  She told Devin that for the first time she is trusting everything he is saying, and she knew that Zach was a little rat and that Hayden was untrustworthy etc..  Devin told her EVERY detail from the beginning to the end of how the BS was formed, who they wanted out, all their game talks...but his version of course.  Devin's version was something along the lines of "I'm the one with a daughter who has integrity and never betrayed anyone and saved you, and THEY are all the bad guys."

Then, just when I thought I might die if I head Devin talk anymore, he decided it was time to out the BS to Jocasta.  So he called Jocasta up into the room with he and Brittany and did the WHOLE FREAKING THING AGAIN.  Jocasta of course was all "I knew it! I heard how Zach talks about women!" yadda, yadda, yadda..  For those that don't know what I'm talking about, earlier in the week Frankie made up a few lies about things that Zach didn't say about Victoria and told them to Devin.  He told him that Zach said a bunch of stuff about wanting to rip Victoria's tongue out and hit her and a bunch of other things.  Jocasta, being a minister to a lot of young and abused women of course ate this up.

While Devin was telling all this stuff to the two girls, the remaining members of the BS and those in the know about the BS were downstairs talking about how there is no way Brittany and Jocasta would be dumb enough to actually buy all of Devin's talk. haha..

There was also a lot of scrambling for what to say since everyone downstairs knew exactly what Devin was doing upstairs.  Ultimately they all agreed they would just have to wait to see what Brittany said when she came downstairs. So they waited..and waited...and waited..

Amber in a momentary fit of intelligence realized that it was Frankie's fault that they were in the situation and confronted him about why he would go tell Devin when they could have just blind sided him on Thursday.  His only answer was "I dunno.."

Also while waiting, Frankie decided it would be a good idea to tell Victoria bits and pieces of what was going on.

The numbers of the rest of the house started to dwindle off to bed until only Zach, Hayden, and Derrick were left awake.  Then Brittany and Jocasta escaped the HOH.  Jocasta grabbed Paola and started pacing the yard in front of Derrick and Zach while Brittany didn't say anything to any of the boys and went to slamming silverware around in the kitchen in front of Hayden.

Right now it's almost 7am here and the BB kitchen is the most awkward place in the world.  I can't wait to see what transpires throughout the day.  This cast just keeps on giving.  As of now, Zach is staying with the entire house vote, but the drama is high and on the edge of explosion.  As always you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...

Monday Fireworks Destined For Cutting Room Floor?

Those who have watched the live feeds the last 48 hours understand that there’s enough explosive footage to fill a full week of CBS broadcasts.

Unfortunately, that won’t be the case.

Everything that happened late Saturday night and all day Sunday will be narrowed down to one or two short segments that will air tomorrow night. The post-veto ceremony fireworks from Monday will be squeezed down to a similar amount of time to open Thursday’s eviction episode.

That’s insane.

All of us on the Big Brother Gossip Show have complained about this for years. In case you’re sort of new to the show, here’s a breakdown of what comprises each episode:

Sunday: HOH competition highlights and reactions, HOH room reveal, nomination discussions, nominations and reactions, Battle of the Block. (They also tend to squeeze in some silly filler.)

Wednesday: Battle of the Block reactions, Veto strategies and pondering on possible replacement nominee, Veto competition and reactions, further strategizing, Veto ceremony.

Thursday: Veto ceremony reactions, nominee’s attempts to survive the week, live final pleas, vote and eviction, HOH competition (or start of it).

In other words, half of this week’s footage was filmed in a 24-hour period, outside of the out of context material that was inserted into this past Sunday’s episode. That’s another complaint for another time.

Granted, the holiday weekend sped up the activities in the house to give the crew some time off. Even on a normal week, though, the Big Brother Gossip Show goes on air knowing everything up to the final few minutes of Wednesday’s episode.

It’s a crime that so much important material will never be seen by the national audience. Everything that happened yesterday is vital to what happens the rest of the season. It’s time for Big Brother producers to throw away the templates they’ve now used for over a decade, and use some fresh ideas on how to present the real story of what is happening. Maybe it's also time for CBS to use one of their other channels for a daily version highlighting the events of the day, ala Big Brother Australia and UK.

To be fair, this is an unusual season. We’ve had seasons where the week basically ends at the veto ceremony. It’s clear at that moment who is going home, and producers have had to be creative to put together Thursday’s opening segment in a way that gives hope to fans of both nominees.

Maybe as this seasons quiets down, this will be the case again. I have my doubts, as both weeks have seen some serious activity go down. The footage of Brittany standing up to Devin (along with his house meeting) should have been a part of last week’s broadcasts instead of being edited into Sunday’s episode.

Obviously, the only way to watch Big Brother is to purchase the live feeds. Click that little link on this page to do just that right now!

The Night Owl - Monday Night

Where to begin? Hopefully you all know or have heard about everything that happened after the veto meeting this afternoon, because it would take me until the end of the season to write it all out, and even then, I would probably miss details. 

The long and short of it is that Devin gave a speech about Brittany being a parent and took her off the block and put up Zach.  Zach outed Devin for all his hypocrisy and even mentioned the medication he takes on a daily basis once he got all revved up.  Paola got in on it...I guess just because she is Paola and also because of the deal she had with Devin to take her off the block if he won veto.  Brittany also said some things to make sure the rest of the house knew she was loyal to them and not Devin, but what exactly she said is still unclear to me.  Then chaos ensued...

Frankie has been working and working and working trying to get Zach nominated and evicted (to what purpose I'm not sure) so he went around being offended about Zach and making himself a victim.   Derrick being the smart guy he is, immediately went to work with Cody by his side doing damage control and trying to keep Zach in check.  Too late! Zach outed the Bomb Squad to Hayden.  This caused even more of an uproar.  Suddenly Amber is freaking out about the BS stuff and about people finding out that she let Devin basically have HOH etc..  Frankie ran to talk shit about Zach to Caleb to make sure that Caleb would be on board for getting him out.  Prior to that moment, Caleb had been more offended by the fact that Devin just nominated one of their members.  Devin pulled Hayden into the HOH with Frankie and Caleb and tried to make him the replacement member of the Bomb Squad to keep him from outing it to anyone else while Zach and Paola got into a decently loud fight in the backyard with Paoloa's only coherent argument being "Because you're an asshole." Christine during this time talked to Nicole about The Bomb Squad and so on and so forth... Chaos.

Eventually Zach went to sleep and the house mostly calmed down with just whispers here and there.  Derrick going and planting seeds with people to keep Zach, and Frankie going around setting fires trying to burn him out of the house.

Ultimately, Hayden decided the whole Bomb Squad thing was bullshit and talked to Derrick and Cody about how he hates how Devin strong arms people and said he wanted to keep Zach in the house.  Nicole and Christine both say they will vote the way Hayden votes. 

The vote talk and scrambling mostly stopped for just a little while and everyone played the bean bag cornhole game and pool etc..  Then Zach woke up and started to campaign.  He went and talked to Derrick, Cody, Donny and Hayden who are all doing their best to try and get the house to keep him.  They talked about different scenarios and ways to get votes.  Derrick coached Zach like a rockstar and broke down every person in the house and what would appeal to them and what fences he needed to mend.  Then Frankie showed up...

Frankie listened to the chatter for a while and promised Zach his vote but then instantly ran off to go tattle or more appropriately to make up some OUTRAGEOUS lies.  He went into the fire room with Jocasta, Amber, and Victoria and told them that Zach thinks he has their votes, but that most of the conversation he just heard from all of those boys was misogynistic women hate.  He got all the girls riled up...especially Amber who grows more naive by the day, and had them believing there was some kind of anti-females rally going on outside.  They were pretty easy to convince since Devin has been telling them all that "Zach said Victoria was a B"  and also telling everyone that he threatened to HIT Victoria, which is a lie that Frankie made up.

After Frankie did his damage, he went out to the hammock to talk with Donny and Derrick alone about how they were going to vote as Team America.  Derrick seems to be all in as far as voting the same way they do.  I'm not sure if he thinks we won't like him otherwise or if he thinks he won't earn the money, or if he is just blowing smoke.  Either way, he and Donny pitched over and over to Frankie the reasons it would be smarter to keep Zach in the house over Paola.  And every single time they brought up good points, Frankie would return to "I would rather have Caleb and Devin as allies"....sigh  Donny even came out with a "I think Team America shouldn't be scared of anyone.  I wasn't scared of Devin and look what he did to me."  I truly love Donny though I rarely see him since he goes to bed so early.

Eventually Donny did go to bed and Derrick told Frankie he could tell he wasn't on board and he wasn't trusting the whole Hayden thing etc..  He asked him to tell him what he thought.  Frankie again kept balking at the idea of keeping Zach: "He's erratic, he isn't loyal, I'm worried about my game, Devin will never put us up" Blah...blah...blah.  Eventually an idea that Frankie SAID he could live with was pitched.  Frankie said they could keep Zach if he made up with Caleb and Devin, so they got Caleb over to the Hammock and Derrick went to work on him telling him that Zach was apologetic about the explosion at the veto meeting and that he still wanted to be loyal and just wanted to stay in the house. Caleb did not take the bait.

But then THIS happened:

Frankie and Zach went into the Hive Room and talked.  Frankie told Zach that he wants to vote to keep him but that he can't lose face with Devin and Caleb.  He told him that he has been scrambling and not trying to keep him from getting nominated/going home.  He and Zach made a plan for Frankie to vote to keep Zach but blame it on someone who definitely isn't voting to keep Zach like Victoria or Jocasta.  The plan also includes Frankie still acting like he really wants Zach out to Amber, Devin, and Caleb. The things is, with all the info that Frankie spilled and the tone of his voice...I kind of believe him a little bit.  Thursday is a long way away, but it may actually happen.  For the record, Frankie also told Christine the plan and sounded like he had intentions of carrying it out and blaming the vote on Jocasta.  Then he told Derrick about it and he and Derrick started to elaborate on the plan and see who they could get to actually vote for Zach to stay, and who they are going to tell to not vote for Zach so they can blame the vote on them.

They are all still chatting, but I am frankly exhausted, and there will be many days ahead of scrambling and changing votes.  As of now this is where things stand: Zach most likely has Derrick, Donny, Frankie, Hayden, Nicole, Christine, Brittany, Cody.  He does not have Caleb, Amber, Jocasta, Victoria. And Devin only votes in the event of a tie.  I have no doubt flip flopping wll be rampant , but as I've stated many times before, I so hope things work out in Zach's favor this week. As always, you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 on twitter for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night....

The Day Timer - Devin goes crazy

If you like chaos, then today's your day. Devin made more promises than he could keep as HOH this week, and winning Power of Veto has proven to be a case of too much responsibility. Here's a quick summary of events leading up to today's POV ceremony:

As HOH, Devin targeted Brittany and put Paola up as a pawn ... and then he promised Paola that if she'd throw the Battle of the Block comp and he won POV, he would save her. But Devin had promised all Bomb Squad alliance members (including Zach) to keep them safe, too. When, in essence, Zach wouldn't pledge his allegiance to Devin, despite Derrick's encouragement to do so, Devin got pissed. (It was actually way more convoluted than that ... but an African tsetse fly has more short term memory than I.)

So Devin concocted a reason to save Brittany: Like Devin's mom, she's a single parent, so he doesn't want to be responsible for her eviction. At Monday afternoon's POV ceremony, Devin saved Brittany and put Zach on the block -- breaking multiple promises at once.

Zach responded by outing the Bomb Squad alliance to Hayden in Derrick's presence, and now just about everybody's in damage control.

It's a fun time to watch the feeds! Get your free trial here: bit.ly/BB16Free

What new alliances will emerge from the chaos? At Thursday's eviction vote, will we finally be treated to a split decision? Will Paola or Zach be the next one out? Did Devin's eccentric behavior seal his fate for the following week? Share your thoughts at @uselesstraffic or right here in the comments.

The Night Owl - Sunday Night

I realize I've said it almost as many times as Devin has told us he has a daughter, but Devin being HOH AND having the power of veto really might be the most awful thing ever.  At least from my perspective.

Let's see... Where do I start?  I woke up today to the news that Zach was being considered for the replacement nominee if Devin takes Brittany down.  It seems yesterday's little tiff where Devin told him that he didn't trust him was just the start of things to come.  Between Devin's determination to put someone out that won't kiss his ass, Frankie being Frankie and talking shit about everyone and especially Zach, and Zach not helping himself at all, unless something drastic happens, he is going up and likely going home. 

There was a meeting of the minds of the BS minus Devin and Zach where Derrick and Caleb both talked a lot about keeping everyone together and how it would be stupid for them to start getting rid of their own alliance members.  Derrick suggested they get Zach up and awake and tr to get him to talk things out with Devin.  Zach, who might be the worst person on slop I've ever seen, hadn't eaten or slept, or drank anything for quite a while, but was raised from the dead to talk to Devin.  It. Did. Not. Go. Well. 

There were about 4 rounds of conversations/heated discussions.  In each one, Devin was Devin and was expecting a bow down to me and apologize for ever having questioned me type-o-thing, and Zach just wasn't having it at all and jumped in between making very little sense and saying things like "I just don't care anymore. Nominate me and send me home."  Which made Devin even more determined to do so.  Then Zach went back to sleep.

Derrick and Cody worked on pep talking Zach throughout the da trying to explain to him that he just really needed to eat/sleep/suck it up/and tell Devin what he needs to hear at least until after the nomination ceremony.  I don't know if any of that really sunk into his head or not.

Between socializing and regular house stuff, the day and night basically alternated between Frankie feeding Devin's want to put Zach up and out, Frakie ratting Zach's secrets to other people in their alliance, and Derrick and Cody trying to rally Zach and get him to save himself.  Surprisingly, even Caleb has been trying...to not much avail.

Later in the evening we learned about the new Team America players.  In addition to Donny, we also have Derrick and Frankie.  I personally am not excited about this twist.  It makes Frankie want to Frankie it up for the cameras even more (which I'm not a fan of) and it immediately made the three of them agree that they are in a final 3 alliance.  Donny seemed really sincere about his commitment to it, Frankie seemed like Frankie..which means he will probably do the tasks and get the money but not care that much about the alliance in general, and Derrick (who I am the most worried about) was really excited that America likes him and seems sincere at this point about making this alliance and the Team America stuff into his game. 

I hate it for Derrick because up until now, he has been playing a nearly flawless game, and I feel like this will screw him over royally. I hope I am wrong though. I really hope this doesn't affect him and he continues to play his own game in addition to Team America tasks.

Speaking of Derrick, this guy has the patience of a saint...or a real parent (yeah I'm looking at you, Devin).  He finally managed to get Zach out of bed and put a few bites of food in him in hopes of getting him to rally and try to save himself, but his efforts didn't go all that well and Zach went back to sleep.

Since then, Devin has been going in circles talking to Frankie and Christine about how he wants to put Zach up and out because he thinks he has "gone rogue".  Caleb and Cody on the other feed have been chatting about how they don't think that is what is actually happening.  They still think Victoria is going up. Sigh...

I am calling it a very early night because one, I'm really tired, and two, I really want to be awake for the veto meeting tomorrow which should bring a LOT of fireworks if Zach is actually put up.

At this point, unless Zach wakes up and rallies tonight or in the morning, I don't see him saving himself, and once he is on the block, he will likely implode and try to expose The Bomb Squad..or at least Devin, and that won't help his case to stay any.  It makes me sad, because I really do love Zach for feed entertainment.  He is probably my favorite so far this year.  I do hate it when they self destruct and give up though.  So we shall see what happens. As always, you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 on twitter for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...
