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...
