Monday Morning. POV Meeting Today - Team America sinks Zach.

Scott wrote up a good recap of most of the Team America crap from Sunday afternoon / evening so I won't dwell on it much.  I will just say that Team America's challenge to do a neighborhood watch continues as Derrick and Caleb are sitting up awake to protect things that aren't going to be disturbed.

The long and short of it is Zach will be going up later today in Caleb's place.

This was going to happen with or without the Team America fiasco, it just so happen that Derrick and Frankie (Donny is just along for the ride) decided to use thier challenge as a way to make everyone turn on Zach just a little bit more.

Zach's problem is he is impulsive and when confronted with something he is inocent of, rather than deny it he will get a smug look on his face and embrace it.  He said he was indeed Amanda's cousin when Team America accused him of it (Frankie brought it up again last night), he has said time and time again he may be gay (told Victoria he might be bi just that yesterday morning in what many saw as a joke since Vicky is extremely gullible).  The impulsiveness really cost him yesterday though as he, on a whim, took the cue ball from the pool table, put it inside Nicole's sweatshirt he was wearing, and hid it in the bathroom (Sunday 7:53pm), but Caleb saw him take it and called him out on it.  He has since denied he is a 'Saboteur' but the damage has been done.

Frankie did eventally tell Zach that he is indeed going up on the block today and being voted out this week (Rule check Big Brother - isn't that against the rules?).  Zach took it very well and told Frankie he'd be a fool not to put him up over Victoria who is no threat.  Interestingly enough Frnkie said he wouldn't consider putting up Derrick, the third option, because Derrick has nothing against him to deserve it.

Zach eventually went to bed but around 12:38am was apparently called to the DR by production.  It was blocked on the feeds but Caleb told several people about it over the next few minutes because he felt it was strange that BB said something like "Zach, you doing alright?"  Caleb felt he was being called in to get a new assignment as the 'Saboteur' - I'm guessing BB is a bit concenrned that Zach is upset after having the entire house yell at him all night for doing things he knows he didn't do.

I personally don't want this task to succeed.  My hope is Big Brother won't give them credit for "taking" Frankie's glitter and Christine's stuffed bear as I don't consider those articles of clothing as laid out in the rules Derrick read on Sunday's show.

Thats all I have for now.  As I type Derrick was alsone and now seems to be trying to get someone else up.  Team America can't be alone in the Night Watch task.



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: - its worth a quick read and expresses similar opinions on the situation as mine.

Tuesday Morning - POV Meeting Aftermath

Hey there everyone, so after a crazy weekend on the feeds, the last 24 hours have been mostly 'quiet.'

The POV meeting took place and as we expected, Christine blindsided Nicole and put her up on the block, replacing Zach who won the POV on Saturday.  Nicole told Donny later that she wasn't completely shocked because of the way Cody, Derrick and "Media Mogul" (You know who I mean) were acting.  As much outrage as there has been on the internet over Christine's move, I personally think had Nicole been the HoH she might have put Christine up in Caleb or "Media Mogul"'s place had they been saved by the POV so I don't think Christine was in the wrong.

Once the meeting finished most everyone went back to bed. Nicole was depressed and low and all in all it was a good day to do something besides watch the live feeds.  As of now I don't see Nicole staying, however, I still maintain that if Derrick (who wanted Victoria to be up instead of Nicole) sets his mind to it, he might be able to flip the house vote and get Donny voted out (which is how he wanted this week to go).  That may or may not happen and even if it does we may not see it until Wednesday like we did last week when he decided to keep Zach over Jocasta.

The next 'exciting moment' (if you can call it that) happened at 10:16pm when a couple of fans shouted from somewhere outside the house that they loved Zach.  Derrick, Christine and Cody heard it and it seems Christine was the most annoyed, having complained earlier that several people recognized Caleb and Frankie at the Cowboys practice but only one person gave her a shoutout.  I think they were a bit surprised as they have been pretty sure that Zach was disliked by 'America' and the shoutout shows them they may be wrong.  While it may hurt his game with Christine (if that's possible), I think Derrick (and thus Cody) may realize its good to keep a player America appears to like around a bit longer.

Finally I caught this gem this morning as the "Media Mogul" was going to bed, alone, in the HoH room.  First let me explain that Frankie (there I said his name!) has been sleeping in the HoH room every night since he won the Battle of the Block.  Christine had claimed he told her he deserved it but since I thought Christine might have made it up I was trying to find audio of Frankie saying it.  So instead of telling Frankie NO or sleeping in the same room alone with him, and perhaps being seen as conspiring with him, she has been sleeping downstairs, telling people she likes it better down there.  This morning at 4am he talked to the camera's for a while and said the following (I am paraphrasing you can got to that time on the feeds to hear the whole dialogue), "My strategy of telling the truth seems to have worked..."   "I'm sleeping in Christine's HoH room.... I don't feel guilty about it because you saw... I'm the only reason she is HoH"  and "It seems like no one is against me except maybe Nicole & lets be honest that problem will be rectified soon."  Priceless stuff huh?

Comment away or holler at me at @BBGossip on twitter.  I have not talked to Ash this morning but my guess is she was tied up with real life and lets be honest - game wise not a lot happened yesterday!


Tuesday Morning Update - Double Eviction Info.

Howdy folks,

As Ash posted on Sunday she's a bit busy with "real life" and the feeds, to be brutal, are not that spellbinding the last couple days so I thought I'd make a brief post to catch those of you without them up.

I will also give those of you that have requested it a short primer in the world of double evictions (at least how they have been done in recent seasons).

As I write at almost 6am Tuesday morning the house is asleep with the exception of Derrick and Cody.  Now I know I am biased as I see Derrick as in total control of the house.  Scott will (and has) pointed out that Derrick is not the most interesting character to watch on the feeds - but if you do watch you will notice the amount of time he spends stroking his little beard, a thing he does when he is thinking deeply according to his wife.  Derrick is the top dog in the house, although few (any?) seem to realize it.  That doesn't mean he is going to win by the way, but he has a great shot.  His game could be over (or put on hold) in 60 or so hours if he is the second evictee on Thursday night.

Derrick and Cody check out the graffiti from previous Big Brother players.

Derrick has managed to form alliances with everyone in the house to some degree.  His biggest 'foe' in the house a few weeks in was Donny and even he seems to be playing along at this point, in part due to "Team America" (ugh).  However of all the alliances Derrick has, his closest is Cody, not that he would have a problem dropping Cody in an instance if he felt that relationship became a liability.  I do think Derrick would have no issue sitting next to Cody in the end, frankly unless something changes drastically he should be able to beat anyone easily in a final two.

And that brings us to the reason the feeds have been pretty quiet the last couple of days.

When Christine won the POV on Saturday night, it became apparent that she wasn't going to use it.  Christine is close to Frankie and up until she won the POV the most likely target to go home if the POV was used was Frankie.  That obviously wasn't going to happen.  Derrick is all about adjusting to the flow of the game and generally only making minor changes if possible, as much as everyone talks about blindsides the only big blindside in the house this year has been to the person going home, everyone else knew it was coming.  Derrick came to the conclusion Sunday/Monday that between Jocasta and Zach he'd rather have Jocasta (whom he has been nurturing a relationship with over the last couple of weeks, notice who was crying on his shoulder on Sunday's show?).  Zach's loose mouth finally did him in even though it was via a game of telephone as Zach told Frankie weeks ago he had an alliance with Cody & Derrick then Frankie more recently told Christine and just the other day Christine told Cody who reported it to Derrick and declared "Los Tres Amigos" null and void.

Zach should be the first Jury member on Thursday

Almost an afterthought, for the first time this year the POV was not used yesterday.  Considering this season the most exciting part of the feeds have been the Monday and Tuesday after the POV has been used you can understand why yesterday and most likely today, will be a snooze fest.  Zach feels confident he is staying and no one is going to tell him different.  Derrick even got Frankie to sign on to the idea yesterday, not that that was very hard.  Jocasta has learned not to make waves and she will be fine (until she is evicted of course which will actually happen one of these times).

Frankie has been a bit player this week altought CBS will most likely edit it differently.And there you have it.  Today will consist of Nicole, remember her? She's actually the HoH this week, getting to do her HoH blog (oh golly gee!) and tweet and take her pictures and thats about it.  I expect no drama, no changes, perhaps Derrick mking sure all are on board with a unanimous vote.  There was also talk of a split vote but as of now that idea is off the table - Derrick doesn't like drama and a split vote might create drama after Zach's departure, better to have everyone all on the same page.

Oh - and Caleb? Quite frankly he's been a non factor this week as well. Other than the shaves head and the Adam and Eve get up for 48 hours, I can't really tell you what he has been up to because its not been much of anything. Look at him below, sleeping like a baby, images of Amber, or maybe Nicole's friend (Marissa?) dancing in his head.

At the end of the day it is what it is...........

And with that, on to the

Double Eviction Primer


Since it was announced that the finale for Big Brother 16 will be on September 24th - later than its ever been (don't hold me to that - BB2 was delayed due to 9/11 - and I am too lazy to look up when it ended), we may very well have TWO double evictions this season just to spice things up and I'm positive we will have at least one house guest re-enter the house later on (so don't give up if you are only watching for Zach).

Here is how the double eviction has gone down in recent seasons.

We start with the vote - they to it pretty fast. So Zach will be evicted and speak to Julie briefly while the HGs get ready for the first HoH competition.  At this point I also expect Julie to announce the double HoH is over and done with.  I can't see them trying to squeeze in a Battle of the Block on Thursday.

Expect LOADS of short commercial breaks on this episode.

The house guests will compete (Everyone but Nicole) and a new HoH will be crowned.  The new HoH will be told they have a few minutes to decide who to nominate and while we see another commercial everyone will try to get in the new HoH's ear, I expect Frankie and Derrick (assuming neither is HoH) to be first in line.

Nominations will be made and the HGs will play for the POV - not everyone will play since we still have more than 6 HGs left - the players will most likely be picked during a commercial break.  Once we have a POV winner there will be yet another commercial break and much scurrying (in the back bedroom or Hive room) as again people try to get in the POV winner's ear AND the HoH's ear if the POV might be played.

POV ceremony will be held and used or not used followed immediately by speeches, a vote and the second eviction.  In the past this has been the end of the show (after Julie talks to the 2nd evicted hg) and the second HoH competition has been held after the show ends.

For reference - last season Candice and then Judd were the House Guests evicted in the double eviction episode last season and they returned along with Helen and Jesse two weeks later to compete to get back into the house.  I would expect a 'big name' HG to get the boot second this coming Thursday as well.
