The Night Owl - Friday Night

Not a whole lot happened to write home about tonight.  Early in the day nominations were made.  Derrick nominated Caleb (who actually nominated himself) and Jocasta, and Nicole nominated Amber and last minute switched her second nomination from Victoria to Donny after having a talk with him and hearing him push her to put up some of the Bomb Squad members she is close with like Christine.

Battle of the Block was played shortly after that and Amber and Donny won.  It's still unclear as to whether or not Caleb actually threw the competition or not.  He says yes, but everyone else in the house is saying it was a competition that he could not have thrown.  Either way, that leaves Derrick as HOH and Jocasta and Caleb as nominations. As a punishment for being the dethroned HOH, Nicole has to wear a frog costume for the week.

Jocasta also had some kind of medical crisis right after BOB was played and due to either heat and dehydration, or motion sickness, she was vomiting and then taken to bed by Caleb and Amber.

After that the rest of the night was really just socializing with a little bit of game talk and scrambling.  Brittany has made it her personal mission to figure out every single person in the house and make sure she can trust every single one of them.  So, she had marathon conversations with most of the HGs in the house today trying to get to the bottom of everything.  She said way too much and really got herself nowhere.  She really did more damage than good for herself because now the HGs are talking more about not trusting her than not trusting Frankie.

Derrick tried several times to have sccessful game conversations with Donny, but the tension is high there because he is dertermined that the alliance of 8 is still together and that Caleb needs to be the target this week He no longer trusts Derrick or Frankie and so has kind of shut down the friendliness.  The three of them did get together early in the day to discuss the new Team America task though.

The task, of course, is to make other HGs believe that someone in the house is related to a former HG.  Frankie, to the shock of absolutely no one, decided he wanted them to make the other HGs think that Zach is related to Amanda from last season.  This isn't really surprising since Frankie has been trying extremely hard to tank Zach's game for a while now, and surrounding him with paranoia about him being related to someone outside the house will not help matters. Regardless, the other two Team America members agreed and so they are going to start the task sometime today.

There is a lot of whispering between the different HGs about what will happen tomorrow if Devin gets picked and wins the veto competition.  I think most of them will take a stab at Caleb.  I highly doubt they will evict Jocasta when they have such a big target stuck on the block (that is, if he IS indeed stuck on the block.)  Several people like Donny and Hayden have made statements eluding to the idea that if they win the veto they won't use it so that Caleb will stay up no matter what and Devin will stay in the house.

Outside of that, not a lot happened at all.  Hopefully things will liven up after the veto competition today.  As much as I dislike Devin and want him to go so i don't have to listen to him anymore, it would be kind of hilarious to me if this whole backdoor operation fails and Caleb and Jocasta are stuck sitting on the block Thursday.  Then again, I'm not sure I want them to lose Caleb yet either.  From a game perspective it's extremely smart, but from an entertainment perspective I'd like to see Amber go first so that we get all the mourning, obsession, and the wearing of Amber clothes out of Caleb.  That's it, guys.  As always, you can follow me @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl - Thursday Night

Your new HOHs are Nicole and Derrick! Very exciting in my humble opinion because I do enjoy watching Derrick magic and manipulate most of the people in the house, and I find Nicole enjoyable at least some of the time.

Directly after the live show we saw the usual scrambles of random people congratulating and asking questions.  Jocasta and Brittany were the first to run in turn to Nicole and ask her if she knows what she is doing.  She didn't really give them any information. Brittany however talked and talked and talked about how Nicole should put Devin up on the block.  She is now apparently a BB expert and believes that it would work out to give Devin the opportunity to play in both the BOB and the POV. *head desk!*

Meanwhile Derrick did his rounds with Zach and Cody to tell them they are safe this week and to take the week off from talking a bunch of game and leave things to him this week.  Small discussions were had between Derrick, Cody, Caleb, Frankiie and Zach about what they thought might happen as far as nominations, but Derrick basically told them to trust him and they would just have to see after he chatted with Nicole.


Devin, prior to the live show, tried to apologize to Derrick and told him he made some mistakes and wanted to work things out.  Derrick told him that they were done.  He said outside the game they could be cool, but after all the things Devin told other people, they were done as far as the game went. 

After the live show Devin continued to kind of grovel and martyr himself for the other HGs.  He went between isolating himself in the Have Not room (where he eventually slept) and trying to talk to the other HGs including Zach.  Derrick previously told Zach to be cool with him so that he doesn't feel so threatened even though everyone knows Devin is the main target this week.  So he, and everyone else really, played nice with Devin.

And the have nots waited anxiously to become haves again.

Eventually HOH reveals were made and then the people slowly filtered out after looking at pictures and baskets etc..  Derrick and Nicole finally got to talk alone.  Derrick started by explaining his version of the BS to Nicole.  Nicole didn't buy it and called him on a lot of things like him telling her the alliance was never an alliance and didn't have a name.  After the grilling and explaining was over they moved on to noms talk.  They both agreed to work together and have sort of a final 2- ish deal, but neither were sincere about it.  Nicole kept going on and on about not wanting this HOH and not wanting to nominate people, so she mostly let Derrick talk.  After he talked for a while, they decided that Nicole should put up Amber and a yet to be decided second person, while Derrick would put up Jocasta, and possibly Caleb. 

The theory behind nominating Caleb would be that Derrick would tell him that Nicole was going to nominate Amber, and Caleb would volunteer himself to be nominated by Devin so that he could throw the competition. This would keep Derrick as HOH and take Amber off the block.  It would leave Caleb and Jocasta on the block with the potential to backdoor Devin provided he doesn't playin the POV, or put him up if he plays and doesn't win.  In the event that Devin DID actually play in the veto comp and win the veto, they get rid of Caleb.

yeah...I thought it sounded ridiculous too, but Derrick is kind of magic.  He and Nicole decided to take a break from nomination talk so that the Have Nots could go eat and reconvene at a later time of the night to talk more about it. 

So the Have Nots had their feast and in the meantime, Cody started massaging Amber in a very "we're not just friends kind of way while Caleb watched from the bedroom.  After a while Caleb went upstairs to talk to Derrick about what was going on with Amber and Cody downstairs.  There was almost a total meltdown, but Cody happened to come upstairs and play chess at precisely the right moment. So he just got grilled by Caleb and told him there was NO WAY he would do anything like that to him knowing how he feels about Amber.

While Caleb and Cody played chess and Hayden watched, Derrick and Nicole had more time to talk about the plan.  They decided it would be best for Derrick to talk to Caleb alone about the idea of Nicole nominating Amber to see if he volunteered himself. 

Derrick only had to work a little magic on Caleb.  It really didn't take much before he was sitting his own ass in the big orange chair for nomination and talking about how "this beast mode cowboy is gonna save his queen" by throwing the BOB so that Amber would be safe.  It's kind of amazing to watch Derrick tell Caleb how Caleb feels without actually saying it and then watch Caleb repeat back to him the exact way Derrick wanted him to feel.

Caleb then went downstairs to talk to Amber about how she might be nominated and ask her if she wanted him to save her..because he would only do it if she wanted him to.  Amber kind of pitty patted around the idea but while she said "you shouldn't do that for your game" also implied that she DEFINITELY wanted him to do it for her game.

While Caleb was talking to Amber about the plan, Hayden slipped in to discuss plans with Nicole.  Nicole told Hayden a little of what Derrick had been saying about his version of the Bomb Squad alliance, and Hayden told her that the Bomb Squad was still in tact and Derrick was running it.  He also told her that he felt like they could trust Derrick for now because he and Cody and the other members were all for turning on Caleb and Amber, but that later they would have to get rid of Derrick by outing him about how many deals and final twos he had in the house. 

Then the conversation turned to how they have a secret showmance going on that no one actually knows about, and Nicole made fun of Derrick for thinking that she likes Cody.

In the middle of all of this, the new Team America task was relayed from Derrick to Frankie.  He told him that they have to convince at least 3 other HGs that someone in the house is related to a former BB player.  There were a lot of rules about how to spread things and how  you get points, but I think it will be explained further once Donny knows about it too.  Derrick's main mission was to tell Frankie and Donny individually to go to the DR for further instructions.

At this point it's 7am here and Nicole has started having people to her room to talk about who here second nominee should be.  She wants it to be either Donny or Victoria, but she just isn't sure.  Derrick and Zach both made a small push for Brittany because she is acting so crazy lately and trying to start some kind of uprising in every corner, but Nicole says she "has good rader for people" and can trust Brittany.  Zach is talking and telling way too much to Nicole as usual, and Derrick is talking to Jocasta who is saying the same things she has been looping about for the past 3 days: "I can't be that woman who votes/voted ..for THAT"  talking about her vote to save Paola.

A lot of them are still awake, but I'm calling it a night so I can hopefully see the nomination aftermath today.  I also expect the BOB comp will be played almost right after nominations.  If things stay the way they are now, Derrick will nominate Jocasta and Caleb while Nicole nominates Amber and either Donny or Victoria.  As always, you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 8 Recap

Last night’s episode ended with a bit of a cliffhanger. What appeared to be a semi-normal veto ceremony became tense when Brittany announced she had something to say.

Tonight we find out what was said as we witnessed a screaming match while the voice-over promoting tonight’s show was heard. Apparently, Zach became heated, and even goofy Pow had a few words. Hmmm, can’t wait to hear this!

Let’s not waste any time here. We get a bit of an intro from Julie, and the long recap, and we’re off! We see Brit say she wants to say something, and Zach responds that he’ll be next. Brit wants to explain what she said Pow, “who I thought was my friend”. She says that she knew how Pow was acting around her that she was going to through the veto comp. She didn’t wear her glasses in the competition, for example. Pow then responds that “we all know how (Devin) is. Thank you, but you’re not a good person. I would rather throw my head in a toilet bowl and drown rather than stay with you for another week.” She admits that Devin asked her to throw the comp, but she claims she didn’t.

Devin finally speaks up, and says that she did throw it. They go back and forth on this a bit, and Donny says in the diary room “I’m loving every minute of this veto ceremony. I’m so glad I have a front row seat.” Devin then takes over the conversation, and this sets off Pow. “Your daughter is going to look at this and laugh at you!” Pow, Pow!

Finally, Zach has had enough and pops up. “Fine. My turn.” He says in the diary room it’s time for him to play dirty. “Frankie, don’t feel threatened.” He tells Pow that she sucks at everything, which she agrees with. He tells Devin “there’s not an ounce of truth in your body.” He says there is no chance that he’s going home, as every person on the one side of the couch will vote for him. He’s not so sure about the other couch. “Frankie, I don’t really know, but I hope you vote for me. Caleb, I’m not so sure either.” He adds that he’s going after Devin, as should everybody else in the house. Finally, he asks for a response from Devin, who just says “best of luck to you”.

Devin heads upstairs, acting like he really doesn’t care because he really believes he’s “the biggest target”. Cody says he is also pissed at Devin for putting up one of the bomb Squad members. Amber, though, thinks that Zach may have to go home. Frankie hugs Zach, but asks him why he was “put on blast like that”.

Caleb is now sitting alone in the yellow room, pissed that Zach just threw the bomb squad under the bus. He uses some of his phony beast mode bullshit in his explanation, but I’m not going to use that crap.

Frankie and Zach head into the have-not room. Frankie is “super-pissed”, but Zach is smiling. He tells Frankie that he didn’t mean anything by it, but Frankie isn’t buying it. “Nothing’s changed”, says Zach, but he knows he took it too far. Frankie is still pissed that Zach “ruined my game.”

Now a bunch of people are outside, and Zach and Pow start arguing. Amber walks away, but the two keep going back and forth. Pow still claims that she didn’t throw the competition, but Zach is now starting to piss off Derrick.

Caleb and Devin are upstairs attempting to count, and Devin has it figured out that they have the votes to bounce Zach. This raises a query, though. Who should they replace him with? The bomb Squad HAS to have a full eight members. It’s time to draft Hayden, and he’s brought into the HOH. Devin outs the whole Bomb Squad lineup, and says they all trust him enough to be a part of their team. Hayden pretends to be happy about it, and agrees to it. Or does he? “My number one goal is to blow up the Bomb Squad”, he says in the diary room.

After a commercial break, Zach is now sitting with Derrick, who is giving him advice to just lay low about going after Devin. He just can’t act like that again. This seems to sink in with Zach.

Now we have a Team America meeting, and for some reason they think their forced alliance is a real alliance, and that they should vote as one. NOOOOO!!!! It’s for silly tasks, you dummies! Frankie somehow believes that Devin and Caleb are better allies than Zach. You turncoat! Thankfully, Donny is there to talk some sense to silly Frankie.

Derrick now has a chat with Caleb. Derrick says it’s better to “play it safe” early in the game, but Caleb believes that they can still use Pow to do things for them. Derrick counters that Zach’s desire to get out Devin actually makes the two of them safe. Suddenly, Caleb is thinking it may be better to keep Zach.

Derrick then goes to report to Frankie about Caleb’s decision. Frankie wants to be the one to inform Devin about the house’s decision, though, and runs right up there. Devin is shocked, and says that he’s now out of the alliance. “This is a solo game for me from here on out.” Wait, what? This mess is all your doing! You brought everybody in! Oh yeah, he threw in his daughter a couple of times in this chat, and fake cried in the diary room. You’re a dope, Devin.

Ok, it is now time for the final pleas. First, Julie asks Jacosta to describe the veto ceremony. She has no answer other than “crazy”, while Frankie says it was “insanity”. Devin was asked to rate his reign of HOH, and he says it was a 4 ½.

Pow gives the first plea, and babbles nonsense about being positive. Devin has “five different personalities and they all suck.” She goes on to claim that Zach is just as bad at comps as she is because he is yet to win one. Um, ok then. Julie finally has to shut her up.

It’s Zach’s turn, and he gives shout outs to his family. He says that he loves everybody, but it’s in “the best interest of the house to keep me. None of you are my target. My target is that man right there. If you guys vote to keep me safe, I’ll do everything in my power to make sure he is evicted from this house.”

Voting then begins with Jocasta, who votes to evict Zach. Brittany votes to evict Pow, as does Derrick. Donny, though, votes to evict Zach. With the score tied, it’s time for commercials.

When we return, Caleb votes to evict Pow, as does Amber, Hayden, Cody, Frankie, Nicole, Christine, and Victoria. Pow Pow is evicted, 10-2!

The results are read to the house, and she calmly hugs everybody as she walks out. After that awkward moment while we wait for her picture to go black, Julie asks who Pow blames for her eviction. “Devin. His game sucked, and he made a lot of deals with everybody.” Julie counters with her deal to throw the comp. “Honestly, I have no idea.” Yep, that’s honesty. She’s then asked who she is rooting for, and she answers Donny and Jocasta.

Thankfully, this segment is cut short, and we go right to the goodbye messages. Zach calls her a “huge liar who lies to get out of lies”. Ha! Jocasta tells her that she loves her, and “to stay close to God”. Devin apologizes, and claims he wanted to help her as much as he could. Donny tells her how much he loved her. “You have been the best friend in the house. I’ll never forget you.”

Julie asks about their relationship, and she replies how impossible it seemed for her to be best friends with a 42 year-old man. “How can you not love Donny?”

Ok, it’s now super serious time. Tonight’s HOH competition is the most important of the season so far. Yes, I know. This is only the third one, but it could determine who wins the battle of wits between Devin and Zach. The competition is called “Underwater Polo”, and they must hit a polo ball down the ramp into numbered slots. The two highest scores are the new HOH’s.

Amber is up first, and lands a 17. Cody also ends up with a 17, while Caleb nubs it down to a 21. Frankie’s ball lands in the 24 spot to take over first place. Christine ends up with a four, while Nicole nabs a 29, the highest possible score! Victoria hits the twelve spot, while Brittany gets 16. It’s now Zach’s turn, and he blows it with a 8! Donny’s score is 20, while Hayden ends up in the 17 spot. Jocasta hits a 22, while Derrick slams in a 28! Nicole and Derrick are the new HOH’s!

Before we head to the final commercial break, Julie announces that everybody is now wearing Fitbit’s, and “it’s bound to affect the game”. Interesting!

Well, that’s it for tonight! What did you think of the big veto ceremony fight? Or Pow’s eviction? Or Derrick and Nicole’s HOH wins? Leave some comments for us!

The Night Owl - Weds Night

Well tomorrow is the big eviction day, and for the first time in a really long time, I can honestly say I'm not totally sure where the vote lies.  I Think I have a general idea, but that could all change in the next few hours since these people flip flop like no other cast I've ever seen before.

I left off Yesterday morning with Brittany and Jocasta walking around sulking and fuming after what Devin told them and everyone else scrambling to figure out how to cover their asses.  When I woke up today Brittany had been working her ass off to get everyone not in the Bomb Squad to understand how much of an outsider they are.  She told the stories and her theories over and over and over.  I'm fairly certain she caught something up in Devin's room because she just could not stop talking today. But ultimately at the end of the day, she and Jocasta were the only ones really into what she was selling about "the outsiders". 

Most other people not in the BS knew about the BS already on some level and knew that it had pretty much split and that none of them were really sticking together as an 8 person alliance.  So most people like Nicole, Hayden, and Victoria just heard her out and then went and told people like Christine and Devin about Brittany's attempts at an uprising.  I commend her for playing the game and trying to rally people, but I think she lost a lot of credit with people for the way she went about it. She basically embodied a female Devin for a while and told everyone how "The good people need to win" And "A parent should win Big Brother" and my favorite "I don't know what low lifes with no kids like Zach are even doing here. The money means so much more to us parents."

Donny is the only person that I really have NO read on the standing of.  Supposedly he is Team America with Derrick all the way, but he supposedly is also now with Jocasta and Brittany.  His vote tomorrow will likely go to keeping Paola as a sympathy vote for his friend, but it speaks volumes of his poker face that I have no idea where he really stands on things.  He is a smart guy.

Jocasta is also, as of now anyway, voting to keep Paola in the house. She is still stuck on it being her duty to Paola to vote against the "violent woman hater".  But really, more than anything today, Jocasta just talked about how much she needs to "poo poo".  Apparently that's her biggest issue right now.

Early in the night the HGs got a practice HOH game in the backyard.  It's some kind of golf/croquet type of game where they will likely be trying to hit a ball at targets that get them points or something.

During the end of the practice session Zach talked to Brittany and she told him that she didn't know who to trust, but that no matter what she was voting Paola out and keeping him.  After everyone came back inside and the lockdown continued, Cody, and Derrick tried to clear the air wtih Brittany and Jocasta for a while..or cover their asses at least.  Brittany believed some of it but not all of it and Jocasta, from what I could tell, believed none of it....though most of what they said was true.

A lot of the former/remaining members of the BS have been worried about becoming huge targets today and have been trying to get the focus more on Caleb, Devin, and Amber since most of them want those 3 gone also. So, while Derrick, Cody, Jocasta, and Brittany were talking in the Hive Room, Zach decided to pull Amber into the pantry and set her off by telling her he had heard that a lot of people were mad at her/after her since she has been working with Caleb from day one. 

It worked. Amber immediately busted into the Hive Room to announce that she has NO alliance and that she is on her own playing her own game and that Caleb in an alliance with her.  Then she went and did the same thing in the bathroom.  Brittany felt like the comment was aimed at her and asked Amber that, and Amber started crying.  Caleb didn't want to see "his princess" upset, so he went and basically said the same thing Amber said except in a very forceful and Caleb like way to the Hive Room crew.  When he mentioned that things could be misconstrued...like Jocasta and Cody sitting together could be thought of as a showmance, Jocasta decided she had had it.  She first argued with Caleb. Something about "Not when my husband isn't here so I can defind it" or something like that..  And then SHE too ran off crying. 

Caleb then went to the bathroom where Pao, Zach, and Donny were sitting and went off to them about the Amber thing and about Jocasta.  They convinced him maybe he should apologize to Jocasta. He did, and within 5 minutes the whole thing was over. BUT, it did put an even larger target on Amber when she started acting so erratically.

While Amber sat around telling people how she thought it was stupid to let the game get in the way of friends because friends are more important to her (she still doesn't know she is on Big Brother), Christine made her rounds with Zach, Frankie, Nicole, Hayden etc..  To make sure everything was basically covered.  Zach and Christine also took a moment to form the "We Hate Devin" club after discussing what Zach had done to set Amber off.

There was more scrambling around and chatter, but as of NOW, I think this is where the vote stands: Pro Zach: Cody, Derrick, Caleb, Christine, Nicole, Victoria, Amber, Hayden, Brittany, and Possibly Frankie.  Pro Pao: Jocasta, Donny.

But these people cannot seem to hold their crazy in for any length of time, so during the time the feeds are down tomorrow before the show, all of that could change.  I'm calling it an early night because most of them have either gone to bed or are headed that way.  There is just some chatter now about what they will do if they win HOH.  Derrick has been talking with Zach, Cody, and Hayden about either putting up Brittany because of the way she is acting, or possibly putting someone like Devin on one HOH's Noms and Amber on the other so that when one of them is on the block no matter what, and if that one wins veto and comes off, Caleb goes up.  There are lots of plans being tossed around and most of them involved getting rid of Devin or Caleb, but it all depends on who gets HOH and this one is really a crapshoot.  As always you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates. Until tomorrow night...

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 7 Recap

Before we get into tonight’s episode, I have to apologize for the lack of Sunday recap. I travelled up to Minneapolis with my extended family to view a Twins game, and although I planned to do a writeup after I returned I just never got around to it.

I did watch Sunday’s broadcast, though, as I got ready to go out for dinner. Really, there was nothing revealed on the show, although I was a big upset with how much footage they used that didn’t fit into the timeline. Come on, the “lotion” segment was from the first night of the feeds!

It did kind of make sense to utilize it, though, as an attempt to explain just why Devin has it out for one of his nominees, Brittany. We will see an interesting twist to that relationship tonight, however...along with some other surprises (if the footage is accurately edited, that is).

Let’s get on with it. After the usual lengthy recap, the episodes kicks off with the reaction to Nicole and Hayden’s Battle of the Block victory. They all walk into the house, and Devin is already acting like the King of the castle, happy that “Pow Pow did her part by throwing the competition...I’ve been pulling so many strings in this house, I consider myself the puppet master.” Ugh.

Nicole, Hayden, and Christine head into the storage room to jump around in celebration, complete with bad sound effects. “Don’t mess with us, I guess”, says Nicole in the diary room.

They head back out acting cool, and hug Amber, who hopes she’s still safe this week. Of course, Caleb also wants to hug her. Creep.

Brittany is now telling Pow Pow that she thinks she’s going home. She knows she’s Devin’s target, but is not done fighting.

Hayden and Pow are now up by the HOH room, and Devin apologizes for putting in the position where he could possibly be going home. He stupidly informs Hayden that Pow Pow was in on the plot, and threw the competition. You’re such a dummy! Why would you openly say that? Pow Pow adds that she “could have dominated that” competition. Um, no. Hayden finds that comment hilarious. Devin then hugs Hayden and babbles that he’s going to ensure Hayden stays as long as everybody. Hayden is as creeped out as the girls.

Hayden is back down with Nicole, and she’s talking about how happy she is that they’re now safe for a week. He’s still worried, though, that the story of Pow Pow purposely losing will become public knowledge. “The last thing we want to be is associated with Devin’s evil genius plan.” As she walks away, he jokingly asks if they can now kiss.

Zach now tells us in the diary room that there are two subdivisions in the bomb squad. One is the supporters of Devin, “aka the idiots”. Then “there’s the non-supporters of the dictatorship. The firm believers that Devin is insane.” He’s talking to this group, and can’t believe that Brittany is the target. They’re tired of doing Devin’s bidding, and want Brittany to stay. “Next week”, says Zach, “one of us is HOH, and we’re backdooring Devin.”

Time for filler, as Caleb flirts with Amber. Devin and Frankie look on in disgust. Devin thinks that she’s just playing him, and that he’ll eventually pick Amber over him. “You don’t mix business with pleasure.” Derrick and Christine are also with Caleb and Amber, and they also talk about keeping Brittany. We then get a flashback of Devin being verbally aggressive to Amber. They all believe that Devin is a problem, and Caleb promises to “protect my queen”.

A bunch of boys are now playing pool, and Devin walks out. Caleb mentions that some girls are starting to feel uncomfortable around him, and that many want to keep Brittany instead of Pow. Devin’s not happy. “That’s stupid. Who’s a bigger threat to the alliance?” Instead of recapping may I point you to our latest Big Brother Gossip episode? It’s all covered there in fuller detail.

Devin finally heads inside, babbling to himself about how he’s always got Caleb’s back. “You’re a lovestruck puppy. Whatever. I don’t even care.” He continues on while the other boys play pool, before again wandering back downstairs to start the fight over and to say “there’s no more alliance”.

Thankfully, we have commercials, and we come back to bare feet walking around the house. Then Frankie and Derrick walk in to discover they are the newest additions to “Team America” (fuck yeah). They’re both thrilled. To find out who the other members are, they are to hang out by the weight bench at 9 pm and say “bald eagle and apple pie”.

Sure enough, most of the house is outside around nine, and Derrick is asking people about their favorite desserts. Frankie answers “apple pie”, and then asks about favorite animals. Caleb doesn’t have the answer, but thinks he has a ton of info about bald eagles. They still don’t know the identity of the third member, but Derrick has figured it is Donny. He sits next to Donny and asks the dessert question, and the gang is now all together!

It’s now time to pick the veto players. Devin pulls Zach’s name, Brittany gets Derrick, and Pow Pow pulls Amber. Devin is sort of happy because there are three Bomb Squad members, but is unsure because of what happened last night. Caleb is then shown heading up to the HOH room, and he apologizes to Devin. (Ok, let me interject here. Before this conversation, Caleb was involved in a conversation where they indeed decided to save Brittany. He then ran up to narc on the others, and that chat started with this apology.)

Devin then does what he does best - he lectures Caleb. We do see Caleb saying that people are talking that Devin may not have the votes he wants. But AGAIN, we’re not seeing what transpired just ten minutes before this where Caleb pledge to go with the save Brit campaign! They finally hug it out, and Devin continues to lecture.

Uh oh, in the hug Caleb lets slip that people have mentioned putting Devin up in the future. “Who said put me up?” Caleb stumbles and says “everybody”. Devin isn’t surprised, but thought the Bomb Squad would have his back.

He sends Caleb down to get the rest of the Bomb Squad for a meeting. It’s time for a much-shortened version of a Devin lecture. “It’s time everybody puts on their Big Brother face, their big boy pants, no emotions, let’s do this already.” Wait, what does that even mean? “We’ve got to get on the same page every week on who we’re sending home. This is not a one-person dictatorship.” He says that 50% of his reason to get rid of Brit is personal, and outs Pow for throwing the competition. He asks who everybody wants to boot, but the girls clam up. This infuriates Derrick, as they’re the ones that talk the most in public about this.

Finally, Zach speaks up, saying that Pow is “by far the weakest player I’ve ever seen on Big Brother in my life.” He says he likes Brittany more, so he wants her to stay. The room goes quiet. “What are you talking about”, asks Devin. Zach adds that it’s impossible for all eight people to agree on anything, and Devin responds by asking who wants him gone.

Zach immediately knows he’s in trouble, and stick around to explain to Devin that he’s “with him until the end”. He admits that he had said at some point that he wanted Devin gone, so he now knows “who the weak link in the alliance is. Now my trust is broken.”

After more commercials, it is now time for the veto comp. Before they head out, we do see Devin telling Pow that if he wins he’s pulling her down. Zach thinks that’s ridiculous. “He has one person’s back, and one person’s back only, and that’s his own self’s back.”

The comp is in a futuristic, outer space setting, leading Frankie to make a floating ball joke. The competitors are dressed in space suits, and the planets are named after “Big Brother icons”. Devin says he hopes to get one named after him. Yeah, like Dipshit?

The “mission” is to hang the ten planets on a device in a way that balances without touching each other. There’s a lot of useless chatter, and silly music as people like Amber, Pow Pow, and Brittany have trouble. Zach comes close before his balls fall. Derrick is also doing well, but remember, Devin is a self-proclaimed “born competitor”. He does kick it into gear and wins Veto! Will he save Pow Pow as promised, though? We’ll find out in about ten minutes (or three days ago if you watched the live feeds).

When the show comes back, Zach is saying that he must now show Devin that he’s completely with him. He heads into the HOH to congratulate him, and Devin asks which of the two he’s going to vote out. Zach says it doesn’t matter, and then asks what’s wrong. Devin replies that he no longer trusts him. “I think he’s just telling me what I want to hear”, Devin says in the diary room. “That doesn’t fly in my book.” Zach wants to continue to talk, but Devin kicks him out.

Zach then reports what happened to Frankie, who asks him if he’s surprised. “What did I say that was so bad?” Frankie says he disagreed with him. Zach felt that it would help make them build trust, and Frankie now is wondering if their alliance is going to work if Zach blows up their game. They hug it out, but Zach doesn’t know how he’s going to get out of this mess.

Brittany then heads into the HOH to talk to Devin. She says that she wants to stay, and it’s now time for her to get a Devin lecture. She throws out the “parents” line, and the sad, piano music pops up. “It’s harder for us, and we have to fight harder. We have a lot more emotions and stuff that are going through us being parents. It’s not worth me missing out on everything.” Devin admits that she’s saying the right things, and “it touches my heart”. Devin demands that if she is saved, she must be loyal to him the rest of the game. She agrees, although she admits it “leaves me with an uncomfortable feeling in my stomach”. He continues to lecture her, and then tells her that Pow Pow threw that earlier competition. Why does he do that???

(BTW, this is another case of bad editing. This conversation, I mean lecture, went for over 90 minutes. Seriously, this girl deserves the world for putting up with him.)

Now we’re back to Zach versus Devin. Zach is sleeping in the living room, and Devin comes up to complain that he’s mad at him. “I’ve only been honest with you”, replies Zach. Devin again says that when he said this stuff he didn’t mean it, and Devin demands that he come to him whenever things like this are said. “If you want to put me on the block, then do it.” Devin claims that he had never thought of doing that...until now. Yeah, right. “If it’s really what he wants, then I might just have to give it to him.”

It’s now the moment of truth. Will Devin save Pow Pow or Brittany? Will he put up Zach? Or maybe somebody else? Nobody knows...or that’s what they dutifully say to the cameras.

Devin asks for the nominees to talk, and after Pow Pow says “it’s probably the only time I’m going to shine”, she pulls her jacket down over her shoulders and poses. What the hell was that about? Brittany says she’s not a threat, and has done nothing to back stab anybody. She concludes by saying her target is sitting next to her.

Devin then says he looks at Brittany as a huge threat, but now thinks she’s a great woman, person, “and an even better mother”. He won’t let a “single mother of three” sit on the block, so he pulls her down.

For the replacement, Devin puts up Zach!

It looks like the show is over at this point, but suddenly Brittany asks to say something. She stands up in slow motion...and then we hear from the announcer that “all hell breaks loose post-veto meeting” Ooooooh!

What did you think of tonight’s episode? Were you feedwatchers as upset as me seeing how they picked and chose their footage? What about Zach’s meltdown? Or semi-meltdown, as most of it will be shown tomorrow night. Let us know what you think!
