Entries in Donny (10)

Tuesday - catching you up.

Very briefly - here is what has happened since the last update...

Zach is still out of the house.

The POV was NOT used on Monday so Donny or Nicole is leaving Thursday.

Monday night Frankie and Derrick started putting out feelers about possibly keeping Donny (he's been the target to go home).

Frankie implied at 9:06pm last night to Derrick that the DR was interested in them trying to save Donny.

By the end of the night it appeared they were giving up on the idea, that some HGs (like Cody) were too gung-ho to get Donny out.

Other than that? Not much has been going on.  It is still possible that they change things up and keep Donny, its also possible that production hinted at the thought of keeping Donny as a way to get the HGs to discuss it so they had some video to show on Thursday's show before the vote.

I expect the next two days to be very very quiet - then again I was surprised last night when I saw that there was work afoot to save Donny so you never know.

Saturday - Catching up.

Here I sit on a Saturday morning wondering what to write about.  As you most likely know by now since the last post on the site Zach was evicted in what I would say was the best exit in a long long time by a house guest.  The in a complete crap shoot of a competition, Nicole won her way back into the house.  Here is what's gone on since...

Donny and Nicole are the odd folks out and know it.  So when Cody won the HoH competition later Thursday night the fate of one of their games was mostly sealed and they knew it.

On Friday the new Have Nots were assigned by Cody and shockingly it was Nicole and Donny that will be eating fish bits and tofu for the next week and sleeping uncomfortably. Cody - the guy that always says he is going to 'call people out' can't even assign people as have notes - as you can see Christine helped him to put up Donny by pointing to him behind his back (Nicole had already volunteered).

A few hours later in the first (technically second after double eviction night) nomination ceremony, Cody got to say Nicole and Donny's names yet again when he put them up for eviction.

Its very simple now, if either of them wins the POV they will save themselves and the other will be evicted on Thursday, if neither win it then odds are Nicole will go right back out the door.  Cody seemed to prefer Donny go but Derrick wants Nicole to go and this season Derrick seems to make things work they way he wants them to the majority of the time.

So the POV will be later today, the ceremony on Monday. 

We have a live podcast tonight - please join us at 10pm EST on Mixlr http://mixlr.com/big-brother-gossip-show/ for the live show and chat.

Wednesday, the I'm too busy to type a lot update.

As usually happens - Mid-August tends to slow down inside the Big Brother house and my "real" life gets busy.  However I know not all of you are more busy now and depend on this site for updates so I wanted to give you a little something so you don't feel you are missing much.  This will be VERY short but tell you what you need to know game-wise.

Last night Nicole started campaigning, but it looks to me like it is a lost cause.  She continually told those she talked to (Christine, Derrick, Cody, and maybe others) that it made no sense to keep Donny over her because Donny is going after some of them while she would promise to go after Frankie, Victoria and Zach (#1 was Frankie).  Even though Cody seems to keep saying he wants Donny out soon he wouldn't commit to keeping her.  Derrick gave the standard "if you have the numbers I'm with you" answer that should be a clear sign to her that its looking bad.

Derrick did do something that he did with Jocasta (but didn't have time to do with Hayden), he promised to let her know if she was staying or going right before the show.  Think of that as a game move.  One of these HGs is coming back and assuming Nicole goes Thursday both Nicole and Jocasta will have Derrick to thank for letting them know they were going when everyone else was not being honest with them.  So the player that comes back may see Derrick as the only one they can trust and the others still in Jury will see him as the only one that was honest with them in the end.  Its a great move on his part and no one else is doing it.

A lot of the conversation that went on overnight had to do with future plans, I'm not worried about that right now as they can plan all they want but it all changes depending on who wins what.  The important stuff to me at the moment is that Nicole seems to be heading home.  There is still a chance Derrick may change his mind if he feels he can save Nicole, because I think he would prefer Donny leave since Donny is the only remaining HG that constantly talks about Derrick and Derrick/Cody as being strong players (and the only two that have still never been nominated).  There have been 38 chances to be nominated and Derrick and Cody never have been.  Someone in the house needs to throw out that stat.  It says a lot.

This morning in a talk with Frankie Derrick told Christine and Frankie he thoguht the vote would be 6-0 to evict Nicole.  I'm still waiting to hear him waver and the Zach flip last week took place Wednesday evening so anything is possible still.  Just don't expect the unexpected this week.

Two other items....

An interesting idea tossed out by @Sunflo_BB to me via twitter today - will there be another double eviction?  Might CBS bring back TWO HGs with the extra long season (all of Sept this season instead of ending early Sept), and throw in a second double eviction?  While the chances are slim, its fun to think avout.

And finally - there has been loads of chatter on social media about Christine and Cody's flirty ways the last few weeks, some outraged that Christine is close to any male in the house since she is married.  My answer to that is what does it have to do with the game? I feel most of the 'hate' being thrown at Christine and her husband (leave HG family OUT OF IT folks) is because Christine's game is not helping their own favorite HGs game, whomever that might be.  (rief item here: Bustle.com - its worth a quick read and expresses similar opinions on the situation as mine.

Comment away or holler at me at @BBGossip on twitter.  Ash is online at Twitter @ashes2ashes13 - so make sure to follow here there and she will post again soon.  I can't come close to filling her shoes but wanted to give you an update :)

The Day Timer - Last time for 4 nominations, but keep on Caleb-hating

Nicole nominated Zach and Jocasta this afternoon for eviction, and Donny put Caleb and Victoria on the block as well. Julie Chen announced last night that there will be a double eviction next Thursday night, which means we've hit some new #BB16 milestones:

  • Despite the fact that it's Week 6, it's the very first time this season that the reigning Head of Household, regardless of the Battle of the Block outcome, will be a house guest who isn't a Detonator (or Bomb Squad) alliance member. That's enough right there to potentially change the course of the season.
  • The "dual HOH" twist will be over after this week. If it were to keep going, just about everybody left in the house would be either an HOH or one of the four nominees ... so, yeah, we'll be down to the more typical one HOH and two nominees.
  • Unless my math is wrong or there's some other twist coming, all future evictees will be going to the jury house.

I have definitely crossed over into the #STFUCaleb crowd -- that kid seriously annoys me with his self-importance and ... yeah, I'll say it ... misogyny. I can't blame Caleb solely for #BB16's less-than-stellar treatment of female house guests this year -- the men seem to target every woman who either spurns their romantic advances or who simply expresses a contrary opinion -- but Caleb is certainly this season's poster child for sexist house guest behavior. Yes, I know it's a game, and I know that deceit and disloyalty are necessary to advance one's game.

But ask yourself this: Would Caleb's continued unwanted attentions and stalker-like behavior toward Amber after she gently expressed her disinterest have been similarly tolerated in the real world?

I'm not a lawyer, but what does it take to qualify for a restraining order?

Part of me wanted Nicole and Donny not to nominate Caleb at all, in the hopes that he could be backdoored next Thursday like Amber was yesterday, or at least have fewer chances to get himself off the block. (Remember that a "true backdoor" happens only when the evictee did not play in a competition that week, thus having no chance to save him/herself.)

Usually, the people I most think deserve eviction end up sticking around for several weeks more. Caleb could win a comp and be safe for the week. Them's the rules, and I'm cool with that.

When I'm talking with family and friends about this show we watch, though, I wish not to have to start by saying, "Big Brother has no socially redeeming qualities whatsoever."

These are my opinions, you're welcome to yours, and I have absolute respect for anybody who thinks differently when our conversations about it are friendly. Share your thoughts in the comments or @uselesstraffic. Who is going home next week? Will Caleb or Zach win the Battle of the Block? (Jocasta & Victoria are just along for the ride.)
