Well, I apologize in advance that between some real life stuff going on, the fact that the feeds have jumped back 24 hours and are not live now, and the fact that the site isn't working very well tonight, the blog will be short and sweet and not involve pictures. Today was a big day for game talk though, so I'm going to at least try to give you guys a quick rundown of what happened.
As of this morning the plan was still for the Detonators plus Caleb to keep Zach in the house, but as I said yesterday, I didn't feel comfortable because there were some big potential problems. A LOT of those broke loose today.
Derrick told Cody yesterday that he needs to reel Christine in away from Frankie and secure her vote for Zach etc.. He told Cody to listen to what she had to say, but not give her any information because he doesn't trust her. That's not exactly how things went though.
Cody and Christine had a Hammock talk early in the afternoon in which Christine told Cody that she wasn't going to use the veto and was going to just tell Nicole that she was keeping Zach because she wasn't voting against the house...but then Cody started doing that thing he does where he whines about Zach talking too much, and he also accused Christine of spending too much time with Frankie, so Christine comes out with a bunch of information. Some of it was true and some of it wasn't, but the most prominent statement and probably the final nail in Zach's coffin was her admittance that Frankie told her early in the game that Zach, Cody, and Derrick have a final 3 deal (Los Tres Amigos).
Cody played it off as if Zach had come to them begging for a deal so he and Derrick just went along with it because you always say yes, but the damage was done. Suddenly Cody was outing everything he didn't like about Zach to Christine and told her all about how he doesn't care that Derrick wants to keep their numbers, he just wants to vote Zach out. This went on and on for a while until Christine decided to go have her talk with Nicole about not using the veto and Cody went to go talk to Derrick.
Up in the HOH room Christine started telling Nicole that she had to get the boys on her side to vote out Zach. She told Nicole that everyone was planning on keeping him as of now, but that she was going to help get the votes to make sure he leaves. Apparently she told Nicole (and I missed this part so I'm not sure if Nicole is lying or Christine is lying) that Zach had listed his targets to her and Frankie had as well and that they wanted Cody out next and then Derrick. I DID actually hear Christine tell Nicole that Zach really wants Hayden out of the house.
Meanwhile downstairs Cody told Derrick about the conversation with Christine and about Zach outing their final 3 alliance. Derrick is suspicious of Christine (which he should be) and doesn't necessarily believe that Zach told Christine anything or that he necessarily told Frankie much (even though he really did) and also thinks that even if he did he didn't do it maliciously. HOWEVER, he did go ahead and pull the trigger and say "fuck it, we have to vote Zach out of here to cripple Frankie." Cody of course agreed.
Nicole then had a hammock date with Cody where she said a BUNCH of things that were not true and a few things that were true. She did tell them that Christine told Donny to put Cody on the block, and that much is true. She also told them that Christine told HER to put Cody or Derrick on the block next to Zach, and that is true also. But I'm still unclear on the origin of the other stuff she told Cody. She told him that Frankie told her that Cody was his next target and then Derrick (which I don't think was said at all unless it was by Christine) and she said a bunch of other weird things about Frankie and Christine and Zach. Derrick and Hayden joined the conversation and it was summed up for them. Derrick did throw out there that he was pretty sure all that stuff was coming from Frankie and Christine and that "Zach probably didn't even say a fucking thing."
After this conversation, Cody and Derrick talked about what their plan of action had to be. They both agreed that they have to vote Zach out in order to cripple Frankie. Derrick still believes with all his heart that Nicole and Hayden are playing them and that after they vote Zach out this week, they will want Frankie to go next week so that all of the sudden Cody and Derrick don't have any numbers behind them. This is essentially true, but they are planning on rolling with it for this week anyway and then plan to try to chip away at the other side and get Donny out next.
As of a little while ago, the feeds started looping backwards 24 hours ago so I missed some time. They are back now and everyone is hanging out together except Zach who has gone into the death sleep that nominees often do (or he could just be being Zach and sleeping a lot). Caleb, Frankie, and Victoria do not know that Zach is being voted out, and Christine doesn't actually know the deal either. The only people that are in on the decision as of now is Cody, Derrick, Hayden, Nicole..and Donny of course plans to keep Jocasta anyway.
As much as I love Zach, I've said from the beginning that the thing that would kill his game would be telling Frankie all the LTA stuff, and sure enough, it's happening. I'm sad about it, but it's interesting to watch Christine, Frankie, Derrick, and Cody all try to outplay each other. Nicole is trying to play pretty hard too, though I don't think she will last much longer.
That's it for me for tonight. Hopefully later in the week things will be more straightened out so I can give you guys better blogs. You can also check my twitter updates @ashes2ashes13 to see more details about what went on. Until tomorrow night...
