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!

How To Listen To The Big Brother Gossip Show!

It’s hard to believe that tonight marks the first episode of a new season of Big Brother Gossip Shows. It seems like forever since Mike, Colette, and I last bickered and whined about what was happening on our favorite TV show.

Tonight at 10 pm ET we will be running down our thoughts on the new cast and the various twists (and rumors of twists) that were announced earlier this week. However, there are some changes to how we bring you our show.

If you don’t listen live, nothing has changed. If you subscribe to us via iTunes, the show will probably automatically download to your account. If you utilize Stitcher, it will be available sometime late tonight.

For those that listen to us live, there are drastic changes. Yet it will also be even easier to hear us than ever before. There will no longer be Ustream ads interrupting our live show, and you’ll be able to listen to us anywhere.

Instead of Ustream, we’re going to be live-streaming via a service called Mixlr. They do have an iPhone/iPad app, so if you want to hear us on the road go download it now. When it gets close to showtime, just do a search for Big Brother Gossip Show and you’ll be able to listen and chat.

If you’re at home, either head to bigbrothergossip or bigbrotherpodcast. You’ll see a Mixler box like this at the side of the page:

If you’re not interested in the chat, you can just hit play on that after we commence and you’ll be able to hear our show. For those that do want to interact with other listeners, just click on the name of the show, and you’ll see this in a new window:

Create a username to be a part of the chat, click play and you’re in with everybody else!

Please keep in mind that using Mixlr is a bit of an experiment. There is a good chance that we may have some issues. If so, please be patient. If it’s a complete disaster, we’ll just move back over to Ustream next week!

Scott's #BB16 First Impressions (Part One)

The day we have (not so) patiently been waiting for is finally here! After weeks of rumors, lies, and practical jokes, we were finally introduced to the latest Big Brother cast.

The release of their identities came after a couple of days of sometimes confusing news regarding the season. Two days ago, CBS released pictures of the house. For me, that’s a non-event, but the reception amongst those that I follow on social media was primarily eye-rolling and “WTF”. It’s garish. It’s almost as if an intern or two were sent to Ikea and Hobby Lobby a day or two before the deadline and told to purchase the tackiest items they could find. Oh well. Within a couple of days nobody will pay any more attention to it. (If you want more info, head over to my Big Brother Gossip co-host Colette Lala’s blog.)

Then yesterday, Julie Chen announced the “twists” on her insipid daytime talk show. Seriously, how can anybody watch those hens babble about Taylor Swift, Madonna, and whatever drivel they were babbling?

Chen didn’t completely explain what was going on, which means a lot of “experts” were telling us on twitter exactly what to expect. Yeah, right. What she said is that each week (or until the producers decide to dump the plan) there will be two HOH’s who will nominate two contestants for eviction. These two contestants can be the “other side’s” HOH. There will be a competition of some sort that will ultimately decide which two of these four will be up for eviction.

Oh yeah, and “Team America” will be involved somehow. I’m not pleased about that, especially after you meet one certain member of this year’s cast.

This leads us to today’s cast announcement. The good news is that they’re ALL newbies! No retreads at all. No coaches. No brothers, sisters, moms, or dads of any former Big Brother contestant! That is the best news that I could possibly hear!

Now that my work day is over, I have gathered a big bottle of whiskey, along with some Tums and other necessities to get me through these interview videos. My goal is to get through eight of them tonight, with the rest coming tomorrow after my Live Ledge show on realpunkradio!

Amber Borzotra is a 26 year-old esthetician from Knoxville, TN. Or is she? In her Big Brother Network video, she first announces she’s a model before backtracking to the more professional-sounding gig. She claims to have auditioned, but then admits she really hasn’t watched much. It didn’t take much longer before I was bored with her. She believes she’ll bring a “bubbly attitude” to the house, and hates drama. No! That’s not what we want from our house guests! Instead of listening to her nonsensical theories of the game, and her dreams of a “Grrrl Power” alliance,I decided to just look at this picture for a bit:


 

Sorry, Amber is bound to be one of the pretty (or semi-pretty) girls that goes out in the first week or two.

Brittany Martinez is a 29 year-old event coordinator from Long Beach, CA, and has three kids. Within seconds, she admits that she was “completely recruited” at a bar. I wonder how one gets this gig that involves hanging around Southern California bars and hooking up girls with the show. Conversely, how many girls actually believe these cretins when they use that line? She’s also never really seen the show. “I’m very extreme. I’m a ball of fun, and a ball of fire.” Sure you are. You look like a “woo hoo” girl to me. She is smart in one aspect, though. She plans on finding a strong male who will help keep her around. Brittany also plans on targeting anybody she doesn’t like to spend time with because who can possibly live three months with a person they can’t stand? Despite her lack of strategy, or any knowledge of the show, I do think she’ll last awhile.

Caleb Reynolds is a 26 year-old adventure hunting guide from Dallas. He originally tried out for Amazing Race with a buddy, but was then contacted by Big Brother producers. “Basically, they liked me but they didn’t like my friend.” He says that while he had seen the show in the past, he wasn’t one to record “every season. If I seen it on, I’d watch it until it was over.” (Yes, that’s an exact quote.) He’d rather watch Duck Dynasty and “huntin’ shows”. He says he lives for the comps, but says his strategy changes with every episode that he has recently watched. He then goes into some strange fishing analogy to describe how he’s going to play, but promises to go in with “guns blazin’”. Caleb also promises to have multiple showmances, because he’s a “lady’s man”. He’s no brain surgeon, but I bet his physical abilities keeps him around for quite some time. Big dumb loads generally stick around for quite some time.

Christine Brecht is a 23 year-old barista from Tucson, AZ, but before I get to her interview I have a little confession to make. While it’s well-known that I’m a huge, huge fan of Big Brother eye candy, what I truly long for every season is somebody that’s culturally knowledgable. Each summer I cringe when I hear the cast talk about music and movies. It rarely, if ever, rises above the level of Britney Spears, Justin Bieber, or Sandra Bullock. Brecht is my great artistic hope of this season. Coffee house employees generally are a step above the rest when it comes to this, and she is married to a musician. Timothy Brecht is a solo acoustic folk-punk artist with a soundcloud page. She’s a real fan, too, who got on the show via a public tryout. Surprisingly, she’s excited for the endurance comps. Her plan is to put together multiple alliances, including a secret final two deal. She has the entire season plotted out, beginning with winning the first HOH competition, so the alliances come to her. Unfortunately, she believes Dan is a “genius”. She’s is also extremely enthusiastic, but I have a feeling the beefcake and model bitches are going to find her annoying. My guess is she’s out right around jury time kicks in.

Cody Calafiore claims to be a “sales account executive”, but the 23 year-old is lying. He’s an underwear model, and a douchebag. Obviously, he was also recruited, although he thinks he’s a Big Brother veteran since he has supposedly watched since season twelve. The guy’s a complete bore. I never seen such an unenthusiastic claim of having an “outgoing personality”, and he has trouble answering any game questions. Oh yeah, and he loves Jeff. I predict two things about Cody - he’ll NEVER wear a shirt, and he’ll make it to jury.

If you're into douchebags, here's a commercial featuring his crotch:

Derrick Levasseur is a 30 year-old cop from Providence, RI who should be in the next 21 Jump Street sequel, as he looks way younger. Derrick isn’t a true superfan, but he did actually audition. I do like the fact that instead of being excited about comps, he’s intrigued by the social aspect of the game and hopes to bring his cop skills into the game. Oooh, a Big Brother version of Survivor winner Tony Vlachos? Despite the fact that he’s not exactly exciting, if he can make it through the early weeks I think he can be a contender.

 

Devin Shepherd is a 26 year-old Harley salesman from San Antonio who was previously a minor league baseball player. He’s a single father who also first applied to Amazing Race, but has been watching Big Brother since season ten. He seems likable, but his interview answers are complete bullshit. He says Big Brother is “America’s game”, and everything he does is for his daughter. Noble thoughts, but he comes off as a used car salesman as he continues to babble what he seems to think the interviewer wants to hear. Seriously, I know you love your child but I shouldn’t hear about her five times in a five minute interview. We get it. He’s honest. He’s moral. Blah blah blah. He’ll barely make it to jury.

Donny Thompson is a 42 year-old groundskeeper from Albemarie, NC. At first glance, I just thought he was the token Duck Dynasty bandwagon jumper. Or the wannabe Mumford and Sons banjo player. I think I like him, though! He’s a hick, and he knows it! He hopes that the house thinks he’s dumb! He’s a true fan that has watched every season, and his girlfriend talked him into applying this season. I’d like to see him go far, but the early weeks will be key. The bimbos and himbos generally rule in the first month, but if he can make it to the jury days he may end up being a threat.

That’s it for part one! Let me know what you think of my rambling thoughts, and I’ll have part two up either tomorrow night or Saturday afternoon!
