Big Brother Season 16, Episode 3 Recap

We’ve met the cast. We’ve been introduced to the twists. Tonight, we’ll hopefully get some clarity on how all of this is going to work.

After the always-useless (and lengthy) recap of what happened the first two episode, tonight kicks off with my least favorite segment of this show. “Who wants to see my HOH room?” Ugh, slap me now. Especially since it’s two HOH’s. Double the boredom.

They all dutifully head upstairs, and Joey says her head is “spinning”. Yuck. This segment is just like every other year’s version of this. The only difference is that there are two of them, which we’re constantly reminded. Victoria, though, thinks that the HOH shower is for her because, you know, she’s a princess. I must admit that Frankie is kind of humorous when he talks about how he’s going to have to pretend to like those “Flatt CD’s” (Rascal Flatts). “We’re going to just bond this week. I know it.”

Now everybody is outside, and Amber (along with some boyd) is doing handstands. Nicole and Christine are on the hammock, complaining about how all of the other girls are “like toothpicks”. Come on, Christine, you’re not exactly a heifer yourself. Nicole says Christine is like her friends back home, and Christine agrees.

Back inside, Frankie and Caleb have a conversation in the HOH. Frankie asks him if they want to work together, and Caleb says he does. “Nobody would ever expect that”, says Frankie. As always, he’s in charge of the conversation, but Caleb says they “mesh so well together” despite their differences. Frankie wants to know who their target should be, and Caleb says they should let people’s true colors show up in the next couple of days. Frankie agrees. It’s now time to look for some “soldiers” to help them out.

Frankie and Caleb are now downstairs talking to Devin and Derrick. Caleb says the “last thing I want to do is be on the block with some floaters”, which leads Devin to complain about the girls. “They get very emotional. They play with their hearts.” The idea is to make an all-guys alliance, and Caleb wants to bring in Zach...and possibly Cody. In the diary room, Derrick says he thinks this is “ludicrous”, but he’s playing along. Frankie, though, is all in, because six guys should be able to win every single competition the entire season. Of course, they have to have a name, so they decide to call themselves the “Bomb Squad”.

Caleb adds that he doesn’t believe any of the girls are smart enough to pick up on this, and we get a few nice bikini shots of Brittney and (a non-bikini wearing Nicole) talking nonsense to “prove” this fact. Thank you, CBS.

Zach is then brought into the room, and he’s let in on the plan. “We’re the frickin’ Bomb Squad.” He loves it, although he says in the diary room that he’s been expecting this. “The strong players in the house need some brains behind their operation, and that’s the Zach Attack.” As much as I like Zach, this segment seems to be pretty scripted.

The “silly” music comes back on, and we switch back to nonsensical “girl talk”, and this time it’s Jocasta and Paola. Meanwhile, Cody is now brought in, but I cannot understand why they’re letting Devin do the talking. Cody agrees, but he also thinks it’s silliness. “Did I just join the next Brigade, or did I just joint the next Moving Company that can kind of fall apart within the next couple of weeks?” Hmmm, another script?

After commercials, Nicole and Christine are talking game again. Nicole says she has to find that one person she can trust, and Christine can always trust her. “I will never, ever, ever throw you under the bus.” Christine is buying into this, because (as we saw earlier) she’s no fan of jocks and pretty girls. They’re outsiders, yo! People are going to think they’re smart because they wear glasse! “We’re a force to be reckoned with”, says Christine.

Silly music now comes up, and while most people are doing nothing, Devin notices that the TV in the living room says “Nominations Today”. “Oh shit.” Or was it “oh fuck”? He calls everybody into the house, and the entire house freak. “Holy crap”, says Pow Pow. “This game just got real.” Um, ok. Victoria isn’t worried, though, because “Frankie and I are super close.” She is worried about Caleb, though.

It’s now time for a Double-D meeting. Devin tells Donny that no matter what, he has to be “mentally strong”. Of course, Devin doesn’t inform him of his new alliance. He “has no idea I’ve abandoned him for the Bomb Squad”. Donny assures him that they are still together. “You are the beast. I am the...I don’t know what I am.” Poor Donny. He is worried about Caleb, and Devin starts to act worried. “I can’t even focus right now”, he tells Donny as he almost tears up. Of course, as Donny leaves the room Devin smiles to the camera because, after all, he’s “here for my daughter”. Ugh, he sucks.

Frankie and Caleb are now talking about their potential nominations, and Caleb says he thinks Brittany is dangerous. Say what? Caleb says her smile “fades to the point of a fake smile”. What? Frankie plays along, but it’s obvious he doesn’t agree. Or doesn’t care.

Pow Pow is Caleb’s other target (“she’s crazy), while Frankie wants to put up Victoria and Brittany. Caleb wants Hayden put up, but Frankie can’t really justify it. Caleb thinks each side should have a guy and a girl put up, and Frankie says it makes sense. In the diary room, Caleb says this is the way to ensure they “don’t have blood on our hands”. Kids, that’s a phrase you’re bound to hear quite often these next couple of episodes.

There’s another commercial break before we get the nominations. Frankie reads the script while we see them stand in front of the keys. They then head upstairs, and each must grab an egg to see who nominates first. Caleb is first, and while he says he’s going to make the Bomb Squad happy he must do what is best for him. Frankie does get to see who Caleb nominates before he makes his choices, and we again get silliness about blood on their hands.

The cast then gathers around the table, and instead of the keys of the whole house being pulled, each HOH reads their nominations. Caleb first pulls Donny, whose face is then lit up on the screen. His second nomination is Pow Pow. He says they are great people, and he says he picked because they were the first of their gender to fall in the HOH competition.

Frankie then pulls his first name, and it’s Victoria. His second choice is Brittany. As Victoria starts crying, Frankie explains that he also picked as to who fell first during their HOH competition. Victoria is stunned. “Shove that in your you know where”, she says in the diary room. Brittany just can’t let herself be the first to go home. Donny isn’t surprised, as he was the first to fall and there hasn’t been time to bond.

Devin consoles Donny, and tells him that he needs to fight. Pow Pow comes in, and Devin walks out. Pow Pow says that Donny has to be strong for both of them. They must stay positive so they can come down off the block.

Meanwhile, Nicole and Christine are jumping for joy in the storage room. They really don’t know how they survived. Nicole is especially excited after seeing players do this in the storage room every season. This super fan stuff is going to get old really quickly.

Sad piano music comes up because Caleb (wait, what?) is tearing up because he made some girls cry. He has “heart for people”, you know? He’s just a sensitive soul who had to put people up for no good reason. Why are they showing this?

Victoria is now shown walking down the hall, and Frankie jumps out of a multi-person conversation to console her. “I’m good”, she claims. He pulls her to a side room, and tells her there is no way she’s going home. He says that it broke her heart to do this, but if it hadn’t been for Caleb putting up Pow Pow he would not have done this. “I had no choice”, and he claims that he would never hurt her.

When we get back from another break, Amber is complaining that she’s sore. Half the house is asleep, and Devin has decided that he’s going to bring some girls into their already giant alliance. “Every year, the guy’s alliance kind of gets played out.” How would you know, you recruited goof? He has decided to bring in some of the strongest girls. Christine is also in the room as he outs the fact that there is a six-guy alliance. What is he thinking? Christine can’t believe it. “Why do you think you can trust me?” she laughs in the diary room. Amber also says she’s in shock.

Devin heads upstairs to tell Caleb what he’s done. I’m not going to transcribe this idiocy, especially when Devin says it’s “foolproof”. Caleb is not happy, and the girls are then brought up. “We are honored to have you”, he reluctantly says.

It’s now the next morning, and Derrick and Frankie are in the HOH room when Devin comes in to inform them what he’s done. Cody then walks in, and he’s told the big news. Cody thinks this is the dumbest thing ever. “This whole bomb squad is pretty much going to blow up in our face.” Devin attempts to explain why he did this, but the guys are beyond pissed off.

Now we’re downstairs for some filler, as Donny does some yoga with the girls. Thanks to Donny, this isn’t as insufferable as usual. Devin then walks in, and Donny tells some homespun tale that makes no sense to me.

For some reason, this makes Devin believe that Donny really isn’t so dumb. He believes that because he’s downstairs “holding court”, he must not really be a groundskeeper. Wow, Devin really is the dumbest Big Brother cast member ever! “You think this bearded groundskeeper is really James Bond?”, Frankie says in the diary room. Zach tells him that he’s being silly, but Devin is convinced that he’s right. “This is the same mistake everybody makes”, he says. he believes that Donny threw the comp, and is plotting to take them all down.

Finally, it’s now time for “Battle of the Block”. Everybody involved in the competition is dressed to the nines, as if they’re at a ‘20’s ball. They are on swings, and must pass champagne from one person to the other. The first to fill their flute wins. Pow Pow fails miserably at this, although Donny is beyond patient. The other two girls proceed a bit better. After a bit, they even get a rhythm going.

Although Pow Pow and Donny finally build some momentum, it’s pretty clear who wins. Brittany and Victoria run away with it, so they are now off the block! The nominees are Donny and Pow Pow, and Frankie is no longer HOH! The show then ends with the usual “I’ve got to fight” comments from Donny and Pow Pow, along with some paranoia from Frankie and others.

What did you think of tonight’s episode? Just how out of his mind is Devin? Do you like how the Dual HOH’s works out? Tell us your thoughts!

24 Hour Impressions

It’s kind of amazing how quickly one’s opinions change once the live feeds are turned on. Many whose qualities you questioned during the preseason interviews suddenly come off as real players; others who are full of confidence and fierce attitudes shrivel down to needy whiners.

Here are some quick thoughts after watching the feeds for the past 24 hours:

Amber. I kind of like her. She’s no brain surgeon, but she’s a pretty likeable woman.

Brittany. The jury is still out on her. Earlier tonight, she told Caleb that she’s now ready to play the game. Honey, it’s day 8. I give her some credit, though, for directly telling Caleb that she wanted Derrick put up instead of the plan to get rid of Joey.

Caleb. He’s playing hard. Too hard. He truly believes that winning every competition is the way to win. He’s also very irrational. It appears that the only reason he nominated Donny is because the love of his life, Amber, is friendly with him. He’s also very contradictory. In the talks he’s had about who will replace Donny on the block, he goes back and forth between saying it’s a house vote to it being his decision...sometimes in the same sentence. His obsession with Amber is kind of scary, and looks to possibly become a reversal of BB14’s Danielle/Shane mess.

Christine. Hmmm. I don’t know what to think. She is very guilty of whisper-talking, one of a live feeders worst nightmares.

Cody. Honestly, I’ve barely seen him on the feeds. He just seems like an anonymous “bro”.

Derrick. I’ve seen him on the feeds once today, having a lengthy discussion with Donny about his nonexistent “Park and Rec” job. He’s gone so undercover he’s rarely on cam.

Devin. Ugh. As seen on the broadcast episodes, he came in with guns blazing, and he has yet to let up. He talks, and talks, and talks. He one-ups every story. He’s got some serious OCD issues, including a paranoia over others using his towel. If it’s ever out of sight, he won’t use it again. He also sort of admitted to having steroid issues in his baseball days.

Donny. Yes, he was cast in a “fish out of water” role, but he’s REALLY out of his element on this season. He’s extremely likable, and always has a smile on his face, but he really has nobody to bond with.

Frankie. The shocker of the season so far. He’s actually a great gameplayer. He’s able to bond with everybody - the girls, the outsiders, the jocks. He may have deals with everybody, but he’s really in no danger of being found out. His only real alliance appears to be with Zach, and the two of them can go far. Of course, he’s a different character when he knows he’s being broadcast, such as the opening of the feeds last night. I’m assuming that I’m going to hate his diary room segments, and any other broadcast-only footage. On the feeds, though, he’s really not that bad.

Hayden. He’s exactly as I predicted. He sucks.

Jocasta. She promised to be a spitball in the house. She’s not. She’s a bore that primarily lingers just outside of the camera view.

Joey. She’s a complete annoyance. She babbles constantly, and it’s usually about nothing. Yes, it was nice that she streaked last night, but why couldn’t it have been Amber? Great job, America. Your pick will probably be leaving this week.

Nicole. Another bore. She’s rarely seen, and even more rarely heard.

Paola. While I predicted that she would annoy me, I assumed that this would be due to her mouth. She was supposed to be the one to bring on the drama. She has yet to do that. In fact, she’s one that constantly needs encouragement, although to be fair that is partly due to the fact that she’s on the block.

Victoria. The self-proclaimed “prettiest girl in the house” has some serious self-esteem issues. Earlier tonight, she had a tearful chat with Frankie about how scared she is that the rest of the house will discover she has hair extensions. There’s also been an ongoing controversy regarding the sleeping arrangements, as her religion bars her from sleeping in the same room as a man. Yeah, this should work out well for her.

Zach. I never really jumped on the “modern day Dr. Will” bandwagon that I’ve heard from others, but he does have a pretty good grip on how to succeed in the game. He’s not living up to the “I’m going to hate everybody” mantra he expressed in his preseason interviews, but I don’t think he’s going to have problems making tough decisions. I did cringe, though, when he told Frankie that they’re the new “Memphis and Dan”.

Again, these are initial impressions based on just under 24 hours of feeds. My opinions could change before we get to tomorrow’s Big Brother Gossip Show at 10 pm ET. Are you going to listen? You better!

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 2 Recap

Last night, we were introduced to eight new contestants, viewed a HOH competition handed by Amber to Frankie, and heard some (but not all) details about various twists. Tonight, we do it all over again, and hopefully by the end of the hour a LOT of questions will be answered about the dual HOH winners.

Julie opens in the studio last night, and just in case you forgot what happened 24 hours ago, we get a recap of last night’s show. Why do they do this?

It’s now time to meet the next group of eight house guests. We start off with Victoria, the photographer. She’s from Israel, and moved to America when she was eight. She’s “orthodox, but we don’t dress it”. She says that it’s easy for her to manipulate guys. “Victoria gets what Victoria wants.”

Up next is Caleb, a good ol’ boy who calls himself a “mextrosexual country boy”. Some days he wears cowboy boots, but other days he whips out the hair gel. “Next thing I know, I look like Robin Thicke out there.” Sure you do.

Third up is Brittany, who is flaunting her body in a swimsuit as she talks about how she just escaped a ten year marriage. Big Brother is going to be the start of a “whole new start”. Actually, the last word was cut off thanks to crappy editing. She has three kids, who are so important that she’s going to leave them for three months.

Christine is next up, and we meet her while she’s working as a barista. She loves her job because she gets to meet so many people, and knows everything about everybody that comes in. She’s married, but instead of the short, chubby guys she generally dated, her husband is super-skinny. She’s also a huge Big Brother fan, and she thinks that everybody is going to trust her because she’s so nice.

Everybody thinks Derrick is a college kid, but he’s actually a cop that has worked undercover in the past. He says there’s “nothing in the house that can throw me off my game”.

Zach is a recent college grad, and he’s currently unemployed. He says he doesn’t need any friends. “They serve no purpose.” He’s looking forward to lying, and lying some more in the Big Brother house. “I tell people how it is, and I don’t care what the consequences are.” We see a picture of him with a black eye after he did such a thing.

Jocasta is shown preaching as she’s introduced. “I’m your minister, and your motivational speaker from the church house.” She’s a mother of two, and she’s an “awesome mom because God gave them to me”.  

The pedicab driver, Hayden, is next. He’s the “goofy, funny kid” everybody is going to love. “I’m going to be friends with everyone.” He believes that people will underestimate him because he looks like a hippie, but he was actually on the dean’s list. Then why are you driving a pedicab?

Just like last night, we now get the fake footage of everybody having an hour to pack. This is worthless, except for one nice little tidbit. “My past is my past”, says Jacosta. “I’ve done a lot of things. I’ve done a lot of people; men, women. But God made me (and) transformed me into the person I am.” Hmmm, does she have a wild side? Oh, we also find out that Christine is a nudist, and wishes she could live naked on Big Brother.

Like last night, we now see them on stage being given the “expect the unexpected” speech from Julie. They all act shocked to find out that the other eight are already in the house, and that there’s already a HOH. Julie goes on to inform them that there will be one more HOH crowned tonight, but “by the end of the week there will only be one HOH standing”.

Jacosta, Caleb, Christine, and Hayden are sent into the house first, and it’s the usual screemfest that you would expect. Christine is excited to be on her favorite show, but Caleb is more excited about the “hotties”. He especially likes Amber, who he says is “taking a big bite of my cake right now”. Jacosta is most concerned about where she’s going to sleep, and rushes around to find a suitable bed. “”Who the heck am I sleeping with?”

Oh God, Hayden tells Devin that he looks like the Rock. This is something he said about himself last night, and I just don’t see it! Hayden also thinks Amber looks like Whitney Houston (wtf?), and that Cody looks like John Travolta. Somebody get this guy some glasses!

The other four are now sent in by Julie, and it’s not much different than the earlier entrance. People jump up and down, and there’s screaming. Zach seems confused but “I don’t give a damn about meeting these people”. I think I do like him. Frankie, meanwhile, bonds with Victoria, who loves him because he has pink hair and she’s wearing a pink dress. Yes, that’s what she said. Nicole is worried that the new people are going to change the bonds that have already been established.

They all move into the kitchen to introduce each other over jars of champagne. Victoria thinks she’s the hottest girl in the house, while Joey loves Christine. Derrick lies about his job, saying that he works in Parks and Rec. In the diary room, Donny admits he’s going to have a hard time remembering the names of the new people. Cody, meanwhile, is shocked to find out that Brittany’s hot body has bore three kids. Red flags go up to Frankie over Cody’s country background.

After commercials, the bonding continues. The pink twins talk about religion, and Frankie says that he’s doing it because he needs a friend on the “other side” of the house. They agree to work together. Pow Pow wants to find out more about Caleb to see if he’s a “threat to my game”. She tells him that she’s a “really straight up person”, and Caleb replies that he knows hot to read people. He says that he is going to win the upcoming HOH because he’s not the type to throw competitions. Pow Pow is worried.

As a bunch of them are sitting around trying to think of something to do, Donny suddenly unveils his special talent! No, not that type of talent. He can imitate a cricket! He claims in the diary room that he’s “distractin’”. He claims that he doesn’t want people to think he’s good at the game. “I want people to think I’m funny.” Interesting.

Frankly, I’m kind of tired of these nonsensical conversations, although Zach and Frankie already seem to have some issues with each other. Actually, I kind of love the Zach is poking a bit at him. “Zach, here’s an idea for you”, says Frankie in the diary room. “Maybe you shouldn’t be pissing off the new HOH in the very first conversation you have with him.” I love it!

After another commercial break, it’s now time for the second HOH competition. Jacosta is shown praying before she heads out to kick some ass. They walk out to a setup that is pretty similar to last night’s. It’s that same revolving barrel with a different background. This one has a pig roast, tiki party background, and it’s called “Over the Coals”. They’re draped around the “spit”, and the last one hanging onto it is the winner.

Cue the cheesy music as they start revolving, and this is a competition that is definitely designed for big, tall people. Victoria is the first to fall, mainly because she’s “too pretty” to do this competition. Frankie is bummed.

Julie cuts in to announce that a “BBQ isn’t complete without a little BBQ sauce”. Brittany almost immediately falls after they squirt the sauce all over them, followed by Jacosta and Christine.

Now it’s only the guys left, and Zach purposely drops. Derrick goes next, and he says that he “proved” he’s a strong player but didn’t have to get blood on his hands. It’s now between Hayden and Caleb, and they’re still at it as we go to a break.

We return to the two of them spinning and spinning, and Caleb starts showing off. Finally, Hayden falls, but I’m impressed. Caleb hugs him, and tells Hayden that he’s safe this week.

Julie has them all head back to the living room, and Frankie says that he knows that he now has to work with Caleb. Julie then tells them that every week there will be two HOH’s who will each nominate two people. “In a Big Brother first”, there’s a new comp called “Battle of the Block”. Frankie’s two nominees will battle Caleb’s two nominees, and the winning duo will be safe from nomination. The losing HOH will be dethroned, and can be then put up in a veto situation. “You can go from being HOH to being evicted”, Julie explains. Obviously, they’re all shocked. In case you’re unclear of that, we get a run of people in the diary room telling you that exact thing.

After one last break, Julie again explains the America, Fuck Yeah twist. The winner of the first online vote, and the first to Team America, is then shown coming into the diary room. Shockingly, it’s Joey! Wait, Joey! Nothing against her, but why would people vote for one of the most anonymous people in the house! Oh, and every mission they win the Team America threesome will get five thousand bucks.

We get a bunch of promos for live feeds, Jeff Schroeder, and Big Brother After Dark before Julie wraps up the show. That’s all folks! What did you think of the episode? Do you like the HOH twist? What about these eight fools? Tell us what you think!
