Double Eviction Episode Guide - Who will follow Jocasta or Zach out the door?

After weeks of dull and predictable (last night on the feeds being a definite exception), #BB16's first double eviction might be just what we need to shake things up. It's a whole week of Big Brother stuffed into an hour ... but not the week we're used to this season because the dual-Head of Household twist should be history.

(By the way, if you haven't read Ash's Night Owl post which brilliantly covered last night's unexpected vote-flipping, you should click right here to read it.)

Here's how things will probably go down during the live Thursday show.

First, CBS will present recaps of all the predictable stuff which happened after Christine chose not to use her Power of Veto. Zach will whine about how stupid he was to volunteer to be on the block and how poorly he did in this week's comps. Jocasta will dutifully portray the outgoing, dynamic, charming, God-praising character written on the cue cards (or is it a teleprompter) in the Diary Room (but which is nothing at all like the quiet weepy wimpy house guest that she is every day on the live feeds).

Various other house guests will get screen time during recaps. Nicole, as HOH, will lament that she couldn't backdoor Frankie and how her agreement with Derrick to get Zach gone unravelled. We will hear from Christine and Frankie and possibly see the most recent made-for-TV Hayden/Nicole smooch (unless CBS saves that for Sunday filler). And CBS will attempt to invent drama which suggests the eviction vote is anything but already decided.

Or ... hold on a sec! The pattern I'm so used to, even after being a Big Brother watcher for only a year, is that the Powers That Be (Derrick and Cody this year, Amanda and Helen at this time last year) have decided by about three minutes after the POV meeting who the target is, and nothing short of heavenly intervention changes that decision between Tuesday and Thursday.

Then last night happened. (As I said earlier, read all about it in Ash's Night Owl.) The result is that tonight's double-eviction should be even more fun!

Anyway, expect the recaps to take about 10 or 11 minutes.

Julie will talk with the house guests, telling them that the person being evicted will be the first jury member. She will officially reveal the double eviction to the house guests (as if they don't already know, at least those of them who had heard of the show before they got on) and the end of the dual-HOH twist. Will Julie also reveal that one of the evictees will have a chance to rejoin the house, repeating the twist which was new last season?

Jocasta and Zach will give their “save me” speeches, Julie will call for their votes, we will witness another boring unanimous vote -- oof, hold on yet again. Will it be unanimous after last night's unexpected gaming? There will be no time for taped goodbye messages ... so after Julie interviews Jocasta or Zach, we'll go to commercial.

That should take us up to about 25 minutes past the hour, give or take a couple minutes.

Coming out of the break, the house guests will be already set for the Head of Household competition, which will start immediately and take probably 3-6 minutes. Julie will tell the winner that he or she will have to put people on the block after the next commercial break. And the HGs will scramble. (Last year, Aaryn won HOH, and she wasn't happy about it at all.)

After commercials, we'll watch a minute or two of live strategizing, and then Julie will call them to the living room for nominations.

(This is when the first televised drama of the entire season could potentially take place. But it really depends on who wins HOH! If it's one of the Detonators, it could be boring if the targets are Jocasta, if she's still there, and Victoria again, or perhaps only one of them plus, say, Donny as presumed pawn. If Caleb goes on the block, I would be thrilled. But I will be hoping again for a non-Detonator to win, and I'd like to see people go on the block who haven't been there. What if Christine or Hayden wins, and they decide to go after Derrick or Cody? Or Derrick and Cody? I know, I know ... Both as targets is highly unlikely (because the HOH is always afraid of being targeted the following week), but one can dream.)

Another ad break, during which extra players for the Power of Veto competition will be drawn.

Then they will go directly into the POV comp. It will take just a few minutes to complete. We'll watch commercials while the POV winner strategizes about saving one of the nominees.

Julie will show us a minute or two of live strategizing again and then call the HGs back to the living room for the veto meeting. (Last year, Aaryn had won both HOH and POV. She saved Jessie and put Judd up, to gasps from the studio audience.)

After yet more commercials, the nominees will give their speeches and house guests will vote to evict the evening's second person. (Again, this has at least the potential to be dramatic. I'd love to see a split vote.)

Julie will announce results, the evicted will look shellshocked, and we'll see tearful (or not?) goodbyes. Then Julie will interview the dearly departed.

And ... that's it. The next Head of Household competition will take place off the air, so check back here periodically late Thursday night / Friday morning for updates! I will tweet (via @uselesstraffic) an update to the #BB16 Ticker graphic (which also appears over on the right side of this page) with the HOH winner as soon as we know, at least if it's not too late in the night. (Otherwise, first thing Friday morning.) Ash will have updates all night long @ashes2ashes13 and a full Night Owl post in the morning.

Who do you hope will be the second jury member? Think there's much of a chance that a significant player like Derrick, Cody, Frankie, or Christine will be following Zach — er, Jocasta - out the door? Sound off in the comments below or @uselesstraffic.

The Night Owl - Weds Night

OH WOW! WOW! Annnnd WOW! Whoever thought that any of us would be thanking Caleb for anything, outisde of ridiculous one liners and flying bunny slippers?  But I'm getting ahead of myself...

Tonight was the halway party they do every year where the HGs get pizza, alcohol, and a cake with their faces on it.  When the feeds came back, Caleb, who apparently loaded up on a whole pizza and six beers (since he is still on slop for another week and has been on slop for a while now) was talking to Frankie about the fact that he was having doubts about voting Zach out. He stated that Jocasta would be a number for the other side if one of them was on the block and she would vote them out in a heartbeat. 

Frankie immediately started to lose it and went and grabbed Derrick.  Derrick talked to Caleb and Caleb expressed his concerns about voting Zach out.  So Derrick went to thinking. ..

For a while Derrick kept trying to get Cody alone for a minute so he could talk to him, but Frankie and Christine kept playing the pop up game in the Hive room and Derrick couldn't get Cody alone.  Derrick talked to us via the cameras in The Fire Room and told us that he wasn't going to get played, and that he was annoyed with Frankie, but before the end of the night he was GOING to get Cody alone and talk to him and they were going to have to make a big move.

When Derrick finally did get a moment with Cody, the two of them decided that Nicole and Hayden are playing them.  Prior to this talk, Zach had gone to the HOH room and talked to Nicole about how she wasn't his target, and then Nicole adamently told Derrick "Zach HAS to leave this week!" That did not sit well with Derrick when he thought about losing Zach as a number in their alliance added to the fact that Hayden, Nicole, and Donny wanted to go after Frankie and Christine (also detonators) next.  This led Cody and Derrick to the conclusion that Nicole and Hayden have been playing them all week when they tell them the stuff that Christine and Frankie say about them.

Now... as far as Nicold and Hayden go, they ARE playing Cody and Derrick to a certain extent.  They want to stay tight with Donny and then eventually pick Cody and Derrick off after Frankie and Christine are gone, but the stuff they have been telling Derrick and Cody that Christine and Frankie were saying about them was all true.  So, Derrick doesn't know it, but Christine and Frankie actually WERE also playing them.

However, now that Derrick and Cody got this into their minds, Derrick told Cody "That's it, we're keeping Zach.  We just need to tell Frankie and Christine everything that's been going on about Nicole and Hayden and tell them about The Rationale."  Then Derrick got called to the DR.

Cody went into the Have Not room and told Christine EVERYTHING.  You could visibly see her about to pee her pants or crap herself at hearing Cody tell her that Nicole and Hayden had been telling him the stuff she had been saying about them.  But she didn't know about The Rationale until Cody told her about it.  Then Christine said "wow..I kind of want to keep Zach now."  Do I trust that Christine really wants to keep Zach? Absolutely not. But I don't think she is going to go against the numbers if that is where they fall.  Frankie then entered the conversation and took absolutely no convincing when Cody started telling him about Hayden and Nicole.  Frankie said "So Zach is staying? Let's do this!"

While Zach was passed out sleeping in the Rock Room (which really has been the best strategy for him so far this year) Derrick went in and joined the other Detonators to talk about how they were going to play this out.  They all agreed that they would keep Zach and go after Nicole and Donny or Nicole and Hayden if this is a Double Eviction (which it is).

Caleb entered the conversation and they filled him in and Derrick thanked him for making him think about the numbers.  Caleb was of course immediately on board for the whole keeping Zach plan as it had really been his plan in the first place. 

Derrick told the others that he would like the vote to be 6-2 instead of 5-3, so he is going to work on Victoria in the morning.  I have no doubt Victoria will vote how Derrick tells her to.  Derrick is the only one Victoria has a final 2 with and she pretty much does whatever he tells her to do.  His plan is to tell Victoria that Hayden said if he wins HOH he is putting her up next to Jocasta and tell her that Zach is a good target for the rest of them to keep in the house since most people wouldn't go home if they were sitting next to him on the block.

The Detonators plus Caleb also went back and forth for a while on whether to blindside Nicole and Hayden by keeping Zach, or to just tell Nicole, Sorry, but we want to keep him since he is such a big target.  They eventually settled on just blindsiding them, but this house flip flops (as was obvious tonight) all the time, so by the wee hours, they may have changed their mind again and decided to tell them.

So, that's that! As of now, Zach is staying! I really didn't think it was possible, but stranger things have happened I suppose! I am super excited that he will likely survive this stint on the block, and I'm hoping he doesn't go out second in the DE today.  I'm fully aware that things could go in the opposite direction for him if Christine decided to vote the other way and Victoria for some reason does too, but at t his moment I don't see that happening.

Today should be a typical double eviction.  The show will likely go straight to the vote after minimal back story followed by a questions HOH and then a run and get the thing out of the bin and hit your buzzer first veto etc..  As of now I'm super excited to see it play out! I think there will be a scramble from both sides to get to Zach first after the first vote.  If Hayden and Nicole are truly blindsided, they wil llikely want him to know that he almost went home and that they know about the Detonators..or at least the story they got about the detonators, and Derrick, Frankie, and Cody will have to do damage control with him and explain how/why Hayden and Nicole know the things they know.  It should be interesting to watch it all play out!

Sorry for the lack of pictures for the blog tonight.  The site is still having issues and loading pictures isn't working for me right now.  As always you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 on twitter for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 19 Recap

No big intro for tonight, as everybody knows what is going to happen. A beloved personality is about to see his time as the show’s jokester end, and the internet is not happy with this. Let’s just go right to it.

We left off Sunday’s episode with the somewhat surprising BOB victory by Caleb and Victoria (who?). Tonight’s show picks up where we left off, and everybody is heading back into the house after the competition. Frankie chases after Zach, but is waved off as he wants to be alone. “I’m extremely disatisfied at losing today’s Battle of the Block. What makes it even worse is that I lost to Victoria. The game I play in the house definitely puts a huge target on my back. However, it all comes down to that POV.”

Zach comes out of the bedroom, and Nicole says “good job” to him. Jocasta complains that she’s been on the block “four times, but I have to smile and be happy about it”. She loses me at this point, as she goes on to babble about how she has to win POV, like that is possible.

At this point, the punishments must be handed out, and Caleb is already bitching. “This is going to suck.” Victoria replies that she just wants to get it over with, which makes Caleb whine even more. “It’s not your head that’s getting shaved. It’s mine.” He’s also pissed about “being chained to a nincompoop for 48 hours”, along with two more weeks of slop. “With a bald head, I look dumb.”

Meanwhile, Nicole is doing her happy dance with Victoria. She’s also “super excited” to be the first girl HOH to keep her HOH status, but “my real target is Frankie”.

Caleb is still whining, and this time it’s to Zach, who is preparing food. Zach’s response is that he chose slop, but Caleb replies, “I chose to be a winner, and you chose to be a loser.” Zach then says he didn’t chose to lose; “I just failed”. Caleb carries on, and Zach just takes it in stride. “I’m not disagreeing with that.” It’s all about Caleb, you know.

He carries on with the bitching about his hair situation, and Zach says in the diary room “I’d shave my head, armpits, and TOES to not be on the block this week. Surviving is what counts, not your pretty boy locks, you Fruit Loop dingus Bust-a-Fooligan!” Zach gets the last word in, noting ot Caleb that he could possibly be going home before Victoria (who?).

We move up to the HOH room, where Frankie is kissing Nicole’s ass. He wants to know what Nicole wants to see happen this week, and she reluctantly says the she does want Zach to go. He follows it up with who she would pick for House Guest choice in the POV, but Nicole is a bit too smart to give him info. Frankie pushes on, though, and says that he thinks she should keep the nominations the same after the veto. “Soon, it will be all out war”, he adds, but Nicole hopes the blood will be his by the end of the week.

Caleb’s misery is now set to begin, as Caleb and Victoria are sent to the diary room for their Adam and Eve costume. They come out as “Beastmode Adam” and “Princess Eve”, and I must say that Victoria looks pretty good. He tells her he’s thirsty, and leads her to the kitchen. Of course, we also get a bunch of footage of them pestering each other in the diary room.

After the costumes, it’s time for Caleb to be shaved. Obviously, Caleb milks the moment for everything he can. Victoria starts in, and Frankie then has to make it his moment. “Why is this really erotic?” Ugh, he’s the worst, especially as he goes on and on in the diary room about how this turns him on.

Back to the game, as Derrick is laying in the living room with Jocasta and Donny. Nicole is heading up to the HOH, and Derrick reminds us how she had wanted an alliance with the boys. He heads upstairs, accompanied by Cody and Hayden. Nicole tells them that if the veto is used, she’s going to put up Frankie. “But he has to go home at that point.” They believe that Zach will be a “lost dog” without his buddy, and Derrick adds that if the four of them are “loyal to each other we should literally be able to get the other seven people out before we have to think about anything else”. Derrick counts out all of his various alliances in the diary room, and adds that Frankie going on the block actually puts them in a bit of danger.

With the alliance formed, we have to go through the tedious ritual of coming up with a name. It’s, as always, a waste of time, and they finally decide on The Rationale. “It’s so disgustingly cool”, adds Cody.

We move to Nicole sitting in the living room with Christine, who tells her that she believes Zach is safe sitting on the block next to Jocasta. Secretly, though, Christine wants Zach out because last week he nominated her, and she’s also upset that she’s been drifting apart from Nicole. “I don’t know where her head’s at. I need to make sure Zach is still Nicole’s number one target, and if she’s not worried she should be.” Nicole asks who she should put up instead of Donny as a replacement, and Christine says it should be Derrick or Cody. “They wouldn’t be mad afterwards, you know what I mean?”

Christine adds in the diary room that she wants the relationship between Nicole and Hayden to cool off, so she adds that Zach told her that Hayden has been hanging out a lot with Victoria. And, dun dun dun, also possibly made out with her! As Nicole would say, “ohhhhhhhhhmaaaaahgawwwwwwd!” You can’t ruin her Big Brother summer camp with a story like that!

Hayden is then seen heading into the HOH, and Nicole tells him what just happened with Christine. “Is that true?” Hayden denies it, and Nicole calls her a bad friend. Hayden finds it ridiculous, especially when she adds that Christine thinks another boy should go up next to Zach. “She is straight up the worst”, says Hayden, and Nicole adds that she won’t be manipulated by Christine.

With the high school drama over (for now), we head to commercials. Oh wait, it’s not over, as Nicole now tells Zach what Christine said. (Seriously, I don’t know what is worse - Nicole’s whisper-talking or her diary room twang.)

Cody runs to Derrick with the info, and they’re pissed that a “loyal detonator” would suggest such a thing. “That tells me she’s working with somebody”, says the dimwit. They both believe that Frankie needs to go up and go home.

Time to pick the veto competition players. Nicole pulls out Caleb’s name, Zach gets Christine, and Jocasta pulls out Victoria’s name. Zach laughs that he’s playing against a giant group of losers, and if he loses “you can call me the biggest Fruit Loop dingus in Big Brother history”. (Foreshadowing, people.)

Time for filler, as Adam and Eve wander around. Victoria actually handles it pretty well (and with a smile), but Caleb does nothing but whine. Even when she complains about him, she’s in good spirits. I’m starting to like her! The acoustic guitar music comes on as he finally warms up and says “I couldn’t have picked a better partner.” The silly music comes back as he attempts to say nice things in the diary room, though.

Back to the game, as Derrick goes into the side room with the rest of The Detonators. Zach is convinced that he’s going to stay no matter what happens in the veto, but Christine thinks that’s silly as she would never vote for him. Derrick adds in the diary room that by the end of the week he’s going to have to choose between the Detonators and the Rationale.

Once we get through more commercials, it’s time for the veto comp. It’s a solo game where they all have to swing through a picture frame that shows comic book caricatures of each house guest. They then have to grab matching comic book covers and place them in the same order.

Nicole goes first, but I must fast forward as her diary room voice is oh so grating. She finally gets through it, and Caleb is next. Yes, we get a comment on how great his comic book looks. Yes, and how sexy the Amber comic book is. “I may just have to sneak that thing into my room later.” Too bad that the Beastmode who was going to win every single competition is too easily confused by this competition.

Victoria is the third up, and they don’t waste anytime with the silly background music. She plays up to her typical spoiled persona, and is nowhere close to getting them in the correct order. She eventually runs out of time (35 minutes).

Speaking of failures, Jocasta is up next. She again acts like a fool in the diary room, and gives those covers the side eye whenever she drifts past the window. She finishes, and starts singing. It’s disgusting. Christine talks about how much she dislikes Zach as she rushes back and forth past the window. She makes it through the comp with relative ease.

Finally, we get Zach’s turn. He says “it’s time to put on the cape and save the day for Team Zach Attack”. He adds that he feels like he’s like if “Superman, Batman, and Spiderman all had a kid somehow”. He gets the order wrong the first time around, and then makes a quick change. He has two out of place, but can’t figure out which ones are wrong. “I was livid. At this point, Zach Attack changes from good to evil.” He picks up each cover and screams about them, and even throws one at the camera. He’s convinced he had it correct. Zach takes one more swing across the window and sees what he had screwed up. “Leave it up to Victoria to mess up my game, you frickin’ dingus.”

Zach knows he’s in trouble, as he told Nicole to put him up, and then “choked in the BOB”. Plus, he just now screwed up the veto. “I blew it.” He collapses on the platform in tears, as the camera pans away. Nice job, CBS!

More adverts before we go back to the program. Everybody heads outside and marvels at the scenery. For some reason, we’re reminded that Cody loves Zach Effron. Why?

Time for the results. Nicole’s time was 12:20, while Caleb’s was 15:48. Victoria, of course, maxed out at 35 minutes, which doesn’t surprise anybody. Jocasta finished in 14:39, but Christine came in at 11:50. Zach needs to beat that time, but as you may guess, his final time was 26:17. Christine has the POV!  Zach hugs Christine, and says that she’s “the only person who can save me from devastation”.

Christine walks into the room with the rest of The Detonators, and Frankie wonders what Nicole wants her to do with it. Christine lies, saying that Nicole needs to do whatever it takes to make sure Zach stays. Zach then walks in, and high fives Christine. “Thank you so much. I’ve never loved you this much my entire life.” Christine now had to decide how she’s going to ensure Zach’s departure.

Before we get to the veto ceremony, though, it’s finally time for Adam and Even to be set free. They cut the ties, and everybody just walks away as if they don’t care. Yeah, neither do we.

More fluff, as we get the obligatory Hayden and Nicole cuddling scene. Hayden then brings up Christine’s lie, and he decides she should be called “Christine Appleseed, because all she does is plant seeds around the house”. Nicole says that she really felt that Christine would be a person she could trust. “I want Frankie to go home Stso bad.” Either way, Hayden says, “Zach or Frankie are going home.”

As always, the veto ceremony finished the broadcast. Christine goes through the script as necessary, standing in front of the memory wall as everybody says what they hope happens.

The ceremony finally begins, and Zach goes first with a plea as to why it should be used on him. “A grasshopper walks into a bar”, he says, “and the bartender says, ‘we have a drinnk named after you.’ The grasshopper says, ‘you have a drnik called Bill?” Oh Zach.

Jocasta then stands. “I don’t know how I can top that.” She says she’d like Christine to use it, but “no hard feelings”. We know what happens here. Christine does not use the POV.

Christine still wants Zach out. “He’s got to go.” Nicole says something I can’t understand, and Derrick says that The Detonators “may not be as loyal to him as he thinks”. Stupidly, Zach does believe he’s safe, and is going to just sleep the rest of the week. And that is the sound of the coffin being slammed shut on his Big Brother playing days...for now.

That’s it for tonight. Are you pset with Christine? Are you as annoyed with Nicole’s voice as me? Are you starting to sort of like Victoria? Most importantly, your thoughts on Zach? Let us know!

Tuesday Morning Update - Double Eviction Info.

Howdy folks,

As Ash posted on Sunday she's a bit busy with "real life" and the feeds, to be brutal, are not that spellbinding the last couple days so I thought I'd make a brief post to catch those of you without them up.

I will also give those of you that have requested it a short primer in the world of double evictions (at least how they have been done in recent seasons).

As I write at almost 6am Tuesday morning the house is asleep with the exception of Derrick and Cody.  Now I know I am biased as I see Derrick as in total control of the house.  Scott will (and has) pointed out that Derrick is not the most interesting character to watch on the feeds - but if you do watch you will notice the amount of time he spends stroking his little beard, a thing he does when he is thinking deeply according to his wife.  Derrick is the top dog in the house, although few (any?) seem to realize it.  That doesn't mean he is going to win by the way, but he has a great shot.  His game could be over (or put on hold) in 60 or so hours if he is the second evictee on Thursday night.

Derrick and Cody check out the graffiti from previous Big Brother players.

Derrick has managed to form alliances with everyone in the house to some degree.  His biggest 'foe' in the house a few weeks in was Donny and even he seems to be playing along at this point, in part due to "Team America" (ugh).  However of all the alliances Derrick has, his closest is Cody, not that he would have a problem dropping Cody in an instance if he felt that relationship became a liability.  I do think Derrick would have no issue sitting next to Cody in the end, frankly unless something changes drastically he should be able to beat anyone easily in a final two.

And that brings us to the reason the feeds have been pretty quiet the last couple of days.

When Christine won the POV on Saturday night, it became apparent that she wasn't going to use it.  Christine is close to Frankie and up until she won the POV the most likely target to go home if the POV was used was Frankie.  That obviously wasn't going to happen.  Derrick is all about adjusting to the flow of the game and generally only making minor changes if possible, as much as everyone talks about blindsides the only big blindside in the house this year has been to the person going home, everyone else knew it was coming.  Derrick came to the conclusion Sunday/Monday that between Jocasta and Zach he'd rather have Jocasta (whom he has been nurturing a relationship with over the last couple of weeks, notice who was crying on his shoulder on Sunday's show?).  Zach's loose mouth finally did him in even though it was via a game of telephone as Zach told Frankie weeks ago he had an alliance with Cody & Derrick then Frankie more recently told Christine and just the other day Christine told Cody who reported it to Derrick and declared "Los Tres Amigos" null and void.

Zach should be the first Jury member on Thursday

Almost an afterthought, for the first time this year the POV was not used yesterday.  Considering this season the most exciting part of the feeds have been the Monday and Tuesday after the POV has been used you can understand why yesterday and most likely today, will be a snooze fest.  Zach feels confident he is staying and no one is going to tell him different.  Derrick even got Frankie to sign on to the idea yesterday, not that that was very hard.  Jocasta has learned not to make waves and she will be fine (until she is evicted of course which will actually happen one of these times).

Frankie has been a bit player this week altought CBS will most likely edit it differently.And there you have it.  Today will consist of Nicole, remember her? She's actually the HoH this week, getting to do her HoH blog (oh golly gee!) and tweet and take her pictures and thats about it.  I expect no drama, no changes, perhaps Derrick mking sure all are on board with a unanimous vote.  There was also talk of a split vote but as of now that idea is off the table - Derrick doesn't like drama and a split vote might create drama after Zach's departure, better to have everyone all on the same page.

Oh - and Caleb? Quite frankly he's been a non factor this week as well. Other than the shaves head and the Adam and Eve get up for 48 hours, I can't really tell you what he has been up to because its not been much of anything. Look at him below, sleeping like a baby, images of Amber, or maybe Nicole's friend (Marissa?) dancing in his head.

At the end of the day it is what it is...........

And with that, on to the

Double Eviction Primer

 

Since it was announced that the finale for Big Brother 16 will be on September 24th - later than its ever been (don't hold me to that - BB2 was delayed due to 9/11 - and I am too lazy to look up when it ended), we may very well have TWO double evictions this season just to spice things up and I'm positive we will have at least one house guest re-enter the house later on (so don't give up if you are only watching for Zach).

Here is how the double eviction has gone down in recent seasons.

We start with the vote - they to it pretty fast. So Zach will be evicted and speak to Julie briefly while the HGs get ready for the first HoH competition.  At this point I also expect Julie to announce the double HoH is over and done with.  I can't see them trying to squeeze in a Battle of the Block on Thursday.

Expect LOADS of short commercial breaks on this episode.

The house guests will compete (Everyone but Nicole) and a new HoH will be crowned.  The new HoH will be told they have a few minutes to decide who to nominate and while we see another commercial everyone will try to get in the new HoH's ear, I expect Frankie and Derrick (assuming neither is HoH) to be first in line.

Nominations will be made and the HGs will play for the POV - not everyone will play since we still have more than 6 HGs left - the players will most likely be picked during a commercial break.  Once we have a POV winner there will be yet another commercial break and much scurrying (in the back bedroom or Hive room) as again people try to get in the POV winner's ear AND the HoH's ear if the POV might be played.

POV ceremony will be held and used or not used followed immediately by speeches, a vote and the second eviction.  In the past this has been the end of the show (after Julie talks to the 2nd evicted hg) and the second HoH competition has been held after the show ends.

For reference - last season Candice and then Judd were the House Guests evicted in the double eviction episode last season and they returned along with Helen and Jesse two weeks later to compete to get back into the house.  I would expect a 'big name' HG to get the boot second this coming Thursday as well.
