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!

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.

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 5 Recap 

Here we are with the first eviction of the season. Will it be the goofy “DJ” that speaks in baby talk? Or will it be the blue-haired hairdresser who somehow was voted for “Team America” but annoyed feedwatchers with her constant babbling?

We’ll also see how the show is going to handle the double HOH issue. Will there be separate teams again, or will the competition give the title to the top two finishers?

So let’s get to it after a super super-lengthy recap of the first week of the show. (Is it just me, or have these intros seemed longer than usual this year?) We kick off with the reactions to Donny coming off the block, replaced by Joey. Caleb hugs her, and tells her not to take it personally. She responds that it was a mistake, as it wasn’t what the house wanted. This is dumb. Caleb doesn’t like anybody, particularly a girl, to tell him he’s wrong. He doesn’t think she’s in any position to have such an opinion.

Now Pow Pow is talking to Caleb, and she’s telling him that she wants to stay. Caleb tells her that she has nothing to worry about, as Joey has “dug her own grave”. Pow Pow says she’s decided to just lay low this week.

We’re now shown a bunch of girls laying out in the sun, and Joey has decided that seven is her lucky number because that’s how many votes she needs. Since she was born on February 7, she somehow believes she has a shot to save herself. Silly girl. She works on Brittany and Nicole, and Brittany actually does want to save her. Neither girl gives her any real reason for hope, although Nicole happily reads the diary room script to make it seem like it may happen.

Devin is now asking Victoria (and Amber) who they’re leaning towards keeping in the bathroom. Devin wants it to be unanimous, so he tells Victoria that he needs to vote against the house. “Those who vote against the house will be targets.” This upsets Victoria. “I didn’t come into the house to play Devin’s game.” Others have entered the bathroom, including Zach, who is pissed that he would ask that.

Devin is then shown informing everybody else in different rooms that it has to be unanimous. Frankie responds in the diary room like I’ve been thinking. “As long as we have the votes, what does it matter?”

Joey is still campaigning, though, and now she’s working on Christine, who thinks it may be too early to go against the house. Joey wants to know why this would matter. “You’re the first target”, she responds. She then moves on to Zach, and attempts to work out a deal, but Zach says he’s voting with the house. He wants her to stay, though, and says there is a possibility that Devin and Caleb may change their mind.

Knowing she has little shot, Joey decides to “do something crazy” to hopefully get her votes. She dresses up as a man, Alex. How this will help her I have no clue, and I’m assuming the diary room told her to do this. Dressed in her costume, and then accentuating it with a “bulge”, she goes in and out of rooms yelling and doing other “manly” things like lifting weights. Nobody seems to really care, including the viewers, although once again Nicole happily reads the diary room cue cards. Pow Pow is thrilled, though. “Everybody knows Joey is crazy.”

After the first commercial break, it’s time to show the insanity of Caleb. He’s shown giving Amber lustful looks, and saying she’s “smokin’ hot”. He says he’s had a crush on her since the first day, and we get a montage of silly things he’s said about her. She wants him, you know. Frankie says it “seems kind of eighth grade”.

Cue the piano music, as Amber is now in the HOH room with him. He professes his desire for her, or attempts to, but his plea dies when he says “there’s a certain way you look at me”. Amber is horrified, and the room instantly cools. She thanks him for talking, and exits the room as quickly as possible. Caleb is still clueless. “I’m not going to give up”, he says.

With that over, it’s eviction time! Joey gets to talk first, and she says she’s physically and mentally stronger than Pow Pow. “Pick me. Keep a strong person in the pool.” Pow Pow responds by saying “thanks, Joey, for saying I suck at competitions”. Good one, silly girl. She wants to stay in the house, and “I do have a big heart. I still have a lot of fight in me.” That made more sense than anything she’s said so far this season.

Voting then starts with Devin, who votes to evict Joey, as does Derrick, Frankie, and Cody. For some reason, we then go to commercials. Zach is up next when we get back, and he also votes to evict Joey, as does Brittany, Nicole, Christine, Victoria, Jocasta, Hayden, Amber, and Donny. Yep, Devin got his wish with an unanimous vote.

Julie then announces the decision, and Joey calmly hugs everybody before departing. While we wait for the interview, Brittany is shown crying but nobody talks. Julie begins the interview by asking if she’s surprised it was unanimous, and dumb Joey thinks she had this all-girl alliance. What? Julie carries on with this topic, but Joey is unable to really give anything back. Let’s face it. Joey is worthless as a Big Brother contestant.

Finally, we get to the goodbyes. Frankie is first, and he says how much he loved her. “We’re cut from the same cloth”, but does add that she wasn’t made for this game. Pow Pow says she’s sad that Joey’s gone, but she’s happy that she survived. “I’m going to miss you, but I’m definitely not going to miss Alex.” Nicole gives an ultra-gooey “I loved every second” statement, and Caleb the expressed the Bomb Squad crap. “You just got blew up, baby girl.” Joey says he’s stupid, and says she knew they had this giant alliance. Julie finished by teasing the fact there’s an undercover cop and a brother of a pop star in the house, and that since the Team America player was evicted next week will see two people voted in.

With Joey’s stint over, it’s now time for the HOH competition, and this week there will be a male and female winner. This competition has a “Greek Week” theme, and the girls and boys will compete separately. It’s called “BB Rager”, and they have to walk across a balance beam toa  stack of kegs. They then have to haul “kegs” back to the other side, and stack them. Those not playing are able to throw frisbees at the other competitors.

The girls go first, and Amber jumps to an early lead, and Pow Pow far behind (again). One of Brittany’s kegs falls over, so she’s out of the game. Amber lays down her final keg, and wins!

Before the boys take their turn, there’s another ad break. A long, long ad break. When it finally kicks off, and Hayden sprints to the lead. Derrick is out almost immediately, and Cody is not far behind Hayden. Devin begins to catch up, and Hayden falls as he is running back after his last keg. Cody barely beats Devin to the buzzer, and is the male HOH!!

Or is he? Wait, there may be a problem with the ending. Julie says there needs to be a review of the tape! But first, we find out that Donny is this week’s Team America winner! Yes! Yes! Yes! That’s the only person I want in this awful twist. He’s almost in tears as he reads the announcement.

This final commercial break seems to go on forever. Julie then comes in and announces that Cody’s foot hit the ground before he hit the button. That makes Devin the new HOH!
