Big Brother Season 16, Episode 11 Recap

After last night’s experiment with “positive blogging”, I’m ready to go back to my patented mode of snark and whine. Be very afraid, my friends, as I clearly have built up a lot of complaints to share.

Before the show begins, though, let me announce a special drinking game that I announced on twitter last night. With Devin on the block, and a 90% certainty of being evicted, my plan is guaranteed to get you hammered in less than ten minutes. In fact, keep this episode on your DVR for future use!

Here’s how it works. Between the time that Devin gives his final plea to the house up until the conclusion of his interview with Julie Chen, take a drink anytime he says the word “daughter”. I guarantee that he’ll say it at least 20 times, so you should be good and plastered before the HOH competition.

I’m actually kind of sad to see him go tonight. I hate the man. Hate, hate, hate. He’s a clown. But this season is so boring that the only current possibility of fireworks comes from the failed minor leaguer. Sure, there’s also the running Amber/Caleb controversy, but that has moved from entertaining to almost criminal. Caleb needs some serious help, and his attitude towards women is the most disappointing aspect of this season.

See what I mean about having plenty of bile to share? There’s bound to be more, as I haven’t even mentioned the two biggest wastes of spaces in the house. I’ll let you all guess who I’m talking about here.

Ok, let’s get going with tonight’s broadcast, and the replacement of Jocasta (zzzzz) with Devin as nominee. A tearful Jocasta and Donny hug, and pose with the veto necklace. Donny says it was a “nobrainer” because “she’s a close friend in the house, (and) she was sick and couldn’t fight for herself. I felt like it was my duty to fight for her.” Jocasta replies with “Praise God”.

Caleb hugs Jocasta and admits it was risky for him to volunteer to go up, but it Devin goes home it could be his “biggest move in the house”. If it doesn’t work, though, it will be “the dumbest move in Big Brother history. At this point, it’s all in the house guests hands.” Nice reading of the cue cards, Caleb.

Devin also works at reading the cue cards to make us believe he still has a shot of survival. For those that don’t watch the live feeds, he doesn’t. This entire segment is bullshit. The moment that Devin was put up, it was clear that he was going home. There was very little talk of saving him, and Devin only made a token effort to campaign. All of this is for the sake of TV.

Jocasta is still crying, and she tearfully thanks Donny and says in the diary room that she hopes to repay the favor. “I’m so happy.”

We now see Amber crawl into bed in the Have-not room, and Caleb gets up and puts a blanket over her. She gets up a bit later and walks out of the room, and Caleb puts down another blanket on her bed. “The things you do for people when you like them”, he tells Hayden, who is sleeping on the next bed. “I put myself on the block. I give up my only two covers I got. I think at the end of the day, I’ll win a date with her.” Caleb rolls over, and Hayden looks up at the camera and says, “what?” We’re all thinking the same thing, hippie boy.

Who the hell is this girl? The next day, Donny and Cody are talking about Caleb. “He’s proven to not really be a competitor like he says he is”, complains Cody. “His game is so blurred by her that he doens’t make proper decision.” Donny agrees that putting himself on the block was a stupid move. Cody adds in the diary room that he thinks he may be able to conjure up the votes to eliminate Caleb. (Bullshit, bullshit, bullshit. He barely made this attempt.) The conversation continues as he tells Donny that this would be a good time to get rid of him. Donny does agree, and adds in the diary room that he’ll do anything for her. “If she wants someone out, he’ll back her. If she gets put on the block, he’ll protect her.”

A bunch of boys are now playing pool, and Victoria comes out in a butt-revealing bikini. They all holler at her “what’s your name”, but they’re not kidding. “Seriously, what’s your name?” asks Hayden in the diary room.

Amber and Cody are now talking in the have-not room. He’s even rubbing her knee as they talk about being friends. “I’ve been waiting for you to do this.” Once again, Caleb is “creeping around” them as they talk, and Cody is getting annoyed.

Cody is now playing pool with Derrick, and tells him about how annoyed he’s getting by these actions. Derrick claims to think that Caleb is starting to become a “big liability”, and Zach joins in the conversation. “Caleb hates you...because Amber likes you.” Zach says this threesome could possibly hurt his game, and once again we’re led to believe it’s possible that Caleb is going home. HE’S NOT!!!

Ugh, another cutesy segment with Hayden and Nicole, as they cuddle in the bedroom. Seriously, I’m getting sick of this nightly segment. Let’s move on as they continue to talk about kissing. Just do it and get it over with. They can’t, though, as Victoria walks in.

Now Devin is talking about the Miami Heat with Devin, and we get our first “daughter” of the night. I guess this is Devin’s mode of survival - bore people with talk about his kid. Oh, and his addictions, since he also talks about rehab. Cody tells us in the diary room that he is starting to like Devin, and that he just got lost in the early days of the game.

Cody moves on to talk to Zach about Devin, and says he had a dream about Caleb going home. “Do we send Caleb home?” Zach says that this may be a great idea, and to make it seem possible we see him talk to Frankie about that very idea. “It’s a good move. He’s letting a girl cloud his judgment.” Frankie moves on to talk to Christine about this possibility, and ends up asking Derrick about doing this. Derrick asks where this idea came from? “The move is in motion”, replies Frankie. Derrick doesn’t seem to think this is a bad idea either.

Come on, CBS. You literally took every conversation about evicting Caleb over a four day period and made it look like it was going to happen. This is creative editing; even more so than usual from this network.

After commercials, we get to meet Donny’s family. Unfortunately, it’s hosted by awful Jeff Schroeder, so I’m not really paying attention. Too bad, as they seem fascinating, especially as they laugh at Caleb (just like the rest of America). Ok, I did actually watch, as the entire family all tear up while they watch highlights.

Ok, it’s now time for Julie to talk to the house. Guess who she goes to first? Yes, Nicole and her stupid frog costume. Jocasta is asked how she’s feeling, and she says much better. She’s also asked about Donny saving her with the veto, and she says that it was great for her since she felt so down. Oh yeah, and there are lots of “praise Jesus”. Zach is then asked about living with so many people, and he replies that he hates them all. Hayden is asked what is the worst part of being a have-not, and he says nothing. “I love it. Is Survivor still hiring.” Julie then announces that there will be no have-nots this week, and they all cheer until she adds “expect the unexpected”. After signing off, she explains that the Fitbit stats will determine the next group. The lazy asses will be punished!

It’s now time to see who (Devin) goes home. Caleb gets to make the first final plea, and he thanks God and his family. He babbles about him and Devin being beasts, and the toughest competitors (despite Donny’s lead in comp wins), but he’s not a “liar or cheater”. He repeats “at the end of the day” a few times, and, of course, we get a couple more “beast mode cowboy” silliness.

Devin then stands up and says he’s had some “highs and lows in the game”. He asks the house if they’d rather play with somebody who “made a final two pact with Amber, and has proven he will do whatever it takes to protect her, including nominating himself for eviction. Or would you rather have somebody like me who is willing to admit his faults (and) right his wrongs, even if that means using a veto on somebody he’s nominated.” He admits that Caleb is a physical beast, but “I’m a physical and mental monster. I would carry any one of you down to the finals.” Wow, that was a fantastic plea! Great job, even though it won’t work.

Voting now begins with Jocasta, who votes to evict Devin, as does Donny, Nicole, and Hayden. Time for more commercials before Zach, Cody, Victoria (who?), Frankie, Amber, Christine, and Brittany. Yes, it’s unanimous, and proof that the entire ten minutes we saw earlier was a waste of time. There was never a real move to save Devin.

Julie announces the vote to the house, and Devin tucks in his shirt before hugging the house. Once he’s gone, though, they’re not as quiet about celebrating as in past weeks. In fact, they barely look at the memory wall. Julie asks what he was handed as he walked out the door, and it tunes out Brittany made him a tin foil heart. Ugh. “But she didn’t give you a vote”, replies Julie, but Devin says he wasn’t surprised. “It’s been proven in the past that people who play hard tend to go early.”

Julie moves on to the demise of the Bomb Squad, and he admits to feeling paranoid while in the HOH room. The side moves that didn’t include him made him feel like they were turning against him, so he “decided to put some little (targets) on everybody else”. Julie follows up by asking about his daughter watching, which leads to silliness about honesty and integrity. Come on, Devin. Julie moves on to talk about Donny, and the various things that people have theorized about him. Devin still wonders about that, and is surprised to find out that he really is a groundskeeper.

The final pleas end the segment, and Jocasta says it’s great that he gets to see his daughter. Caleb says he’s a great guy, but put his friends in danger. Zach says he’s possibly the worst player in history “because your social game was awful”. Ha! Donny talks about how he “done him wrong the first week”, but wants him to have fun with his daughter. That’s it for Devin!

Julie jumps right into the HOH competition, and they all have to pair up into teams. They randomly drew for these teams, and here’s how they stack up. Victoria is with Christine, Caleb is with Nicole, Brittany is with Jocasta, Amber is with Zach, Donny is paired with Hayden, and Frankie and Cody are the final team.

There’s another advert break before we get to this competition, which is called “Devil’s Eggs”. They have to move eggs through chicken wire into slots, and the first to get all twelve is the winner. I have a feeling the winner will NOT be Victoria and Christine.

Frankie is the first to move an egg to his partner, with Amber and Zach a little behind. We suddenly get a live feed fish overlay for a second, and then Victoria and Christine pass their first egg.

Julie then cuts away to tease the second Team America (Fuck Yeah!) mission, and when we return we find out that this week’s bad idea is for them to somehow get a physical threat nominated. Yeah, whatever.

There’s one final look at the competition, but you’ll have to come back to this site later to find out who won. Currently, there’s a tie between Amber/Zach and Cody/Frankie. Before we cut away, we get the “elements” added to the game. This time, it’s falling ashes. Nobody really pays attention, though, as we go to credits.

So that’s it. Now tell me, my friends, is this a better way for me to post? More importantly, are you as upset with the selective editing as I am? Was the house smart to evict Devin over Caleb? Tell me what you’re thinking!

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 10 Recap (Bizarro World Version)

According to the comments section of my last recap, I’m a bit too negative in these reports. I apparently don’t like anything, and needlessly criticize everything.

These are not new complaints about my style. I’ve long understood that I’m a sarcastic creep. In response to this latest round of allegations, though, I’m going to try something new tonight. Since tonight’s episode is looking to be a bit predictable, I’m going to take a positive approach. There will be no snide comments. Nobody will be described in a negative light.

Let’s see how this works out.

The broadcast begins with the reactions to the Battle of the Block victory by Amber and Donny, and Nicole’s “disappearance”. Will she reappear? I sure hope so!

Oh there she is, back in the house in a frog costume! The house rushes in and laughs and laughs! She’s still worried, though, as she’s no longer safe this week. Hayden calls her a “cute frog”, and he’s a bit confused as usually he’s hitting on “hot girls but now I have to hit on a hot frog”. (This new method of reporting is already very tough.)

Derrick is obviously happy, and can’t wait to put up Devin. He’s just worried that Devin may play in the veto competition. Devin knows that he’s “solo in this game”, and that he’s the target. “I may be down but I’m not out.”

Frankie is now talking with Amber and Donny, telling them that they’re a great team. “It’s amazing what you can do when you combine a model with a country boy”, says Donny. “I even got a little kiss out of it. But I don’t want anybody to get the wrong idea. We’re just friends.”

Donny is still smiling on the living room couch as we now see Caleb leading Jocasta out of the diary room. She’s apparently deathly ill, and everybody rushes to see what’s wrong. She tells us about how she’s had stomach issues, and the heat of the competition made her immediately sick. We even get a toilet cam shot to show us just how sick she is. “I’m still on the block, and I guess I should be concerned about that. l’m not. I’m concerned about feeling better, and being able to walk without somebody helping me.” Poor girl. Just say no to laxatives!

Luckily, Caleb was there to save the day! We see him help tuck Jocasta into bed, and he is so concerned about her...and everybody else. “I wanted to make sure an ally, a friend, and Amber were safe, so I threw it. Hopefully, it doesn’t come around and bite me in the butt.”

Unfortunately, Caleb is also sad. We see him sitting outside in Amber’s slippers, telling her that he threw that comp for her. She didn’t want him to do that, though. “As a matter of fact, I told him not to. Not he thinks I owe him something or (he) expects something from me.”

Caleb says that she could be his date for the finale, and Amber comes right out and says no. “What else do I have to do?”, he replies. He doesn’t think she understands what he did for her, and she should appreciate that. Amber says that she doesn’t want to hurt his feelings, but she’s not going to change her mind. “If you’re not my date to the finale, I’m going to be mad”, he finally says.

Oh look, we get some more frog suit footage. Isn’t Nicole so cute? It looks SOOO much fun. Hayden even wants to kiss the cute frog, which impresses Brittany.

That was short and sweet, as we move to romantic music. Oh look, Cody is giving Amber a massage. How will this go over with Caleb? She says that Cody is “one of my favorite people”, and he replies that he gets “death stares” from Caleb whenever he gives her attention. She says that she just doesn’t think of Caleb in that manner, and is getting tired of the situation.

Caleb then walks out of the bedroom, giving that death stare as he walks by. “This is driving me crazy”, she says to Cody. “This is why I wish I had come in here at 350 pounds.” Caleb continues on up to the HOH. He’s not happy that a member of his alliance “put his hands on my home girl.” The “beast mode cowboy” is not happy with this.

The two move out to the chess board, and Caleb says that he thinks Cody has something going with Amber. “With this kid’s ego, he’ll come after me out of spite”, says Cody in the diary room. He tells Caleb that he would never go after another man’s girl, but Cody still thinks he’s automoatically Caleb’s main target.

Derrick then gives some advice to Caleb in the HOH, and is joined by Cody.They just have to get Caleb off the block, but Caleb walks out as quickly as possible. Talk turns immediately to possibly getting out Caleb instead. “This is our only shot to get him out”, says Cody. They both agree that Caleb is blinded by his obsession with Amber.

After some wonderful promotion of CBS broadcasts, it’s time for the Team America segment. Remember, the three Team America members have decided to create a rumor that Zach is related to last season’s Amanda. Donny starts off by talking to Nicole about this story, who then goes on to relate it to Christine. Derrick tells the same story to Caleb, who rushes off to tell Amber (just as Derrick planned).

The “crown jewel” is to tell Zach about the rumor, knowing that he’d rush off to tell EVERYBODY this story. He’s asked if it’s true, and after a delay he laughs and says no. He does as expected, though, and rushes around to tell everybody. He even claims that it’s true, which Nicole believes. Oh wait, there’s Victoria! She also believes the story. Good to see her on this episode!

Oh no, Jocasta is still sick. Donny is now taking care of her, leading her from the diary room back to the bedroom. “The poor thing is not going to be able to play in the veto competition”, says Donny.

It’s time to find out who is going to play, though. Because of Jocasta’s illness, there will only be five players. Derrick pulls the first chip, which belongs to Christine. Caleb then pulls out the worst possible pick - Devin! Derrick then pulls out Donny’s name “on Jocasta’s behalf”.

As you may imagine, Devin couldn’t be more pleased “to fight for my life”. Caleb says he “better bring his A game”. Derrick pulls Donny into the storage room to find out what he’d do if he won the veto. He tells Donny that his goal is to get out Devin, but Donny interrupts him to say that this is the third week that he’s “been out of the loop”. He adds in the diary room “that I’m not ready to show my cards yet”. Derrick admits that he’s still concerned that Donny has that “Double D” alliance with Devin.

After some more great commercials, it’s now time for Derrick of all people to “go into Beast Mode”. He paints his face, and the Rocky theme comes on as Devin and Caleb also get mentally and physically ready.

The funky music comes on, which means it’s veto competition time! It’s a Vegas casino setup, and Hayden reminds us that the “house always wins in Vegas”. The comp is called “Tumblin’ Dice”, and they have to roll some giant dice to match the number that comes up on a roulette wheel. Sound confusing? Yeah, it’s hard to explain in print.

The first pair to go against each other is Christine and Devin. They must go for the number four. Christine has trouble figuring out how to end up with that number, so obviously Devin wins.

Derrick is the next up, and he also challenges Devin. They must roll around and end up with a two, Derrick seems to take his time. In fact, at one point he was two moves away from winning before he started doing some wacky robot moves inside his dice. Devin beats him by a hair.

It’s now all up to Donny, which worries everybody!

But first, we get some more great CBS promos! Can Donny steal a victory from the professional athlete? He just wants to make his family proud. Devin and Caleb both still don’t believe he’s just a groundskeeper. While watching the other rounds, Donny says that he’s figured out how to win if it’s a 3, 4, or 5. Too bad it comes up a six! Devin goes out a full speed, but Donny takes his time because he has to “figure it out as I go”. Devin gets to the base, but he’s not at the right number, while Donny continues to go at his own pace. He then suddenly wins, and the entire house cheers! “I knew you weren’t a janitor”, says Caleb.

The competition is not over yet, though. The final round is Donny versus Caleb, and they must race to a two. Donny says that he already took out “one big bully. I want to take out both big bullies.” It doesn’t take long for Donny to completely smoke Caleb. “That was hashtag old man beatdown”, he says.

What will Donny do with that veto, though? We’ll find out after one more incredible commercial break.

It doesn’t take long for us to find out, as right after the adverts we see Donny race to Jocasta’s side. “Somebody’s not going home”, he tells her. She starts crying as everybody rushes in to console her. “Winning this veto for Jocasta means the world to me”, says Donny. “A friend in need is a friend indeed.” She says this moement made her feel a “hundred percent better”. I bet she felt two hundred percent after Cody came in and did a semi-striptease for her.

Devin is now seen in the have-not room all by himself. He says he doesn’t want the others to see him feel emotional, but all he’s thinking about is how he let down his daughter. “Every daughter looks at their father like a superhero. I wasn’t her superhero.”

Although we know what happens, Donny must still go through the veto ceremony motions. He even acknowledges that everybody should know what he’s doing, but the “house is so paranoid”. He brings everybody into the house, and announces that he is indeed saving Jocasta. “You were too sick to compete, and all I want is for you to get better.” She again breaks down in tears. Heavy wails, in fact.

Derrick has to name a replacement nominee, and as one would expect, it’s Devin. “On behalf of all the houseguests, Devin take a seat.”  

With that the episode ends, and I can now break out of this nice-nice persona. Can you now see why I do what I do? You can read a recap such as this on a million other sites. Don’t you like a little spice and opinion in these types of articles? There’s no way I can continue to write in that style. If you don’t like my opinions, please let me know and we can have an open discussion. Isn’t that what Big Brother fandom is all about?

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 9 Recap

Now that we’re a few weeks into the season, we’re starting to get into the swing of things. We pretty much know what is going to be aired on Sunday nights, and it’s really not that much different from the template of earlier seasons. Instead of a Have-Not competition, we now have the Battle of the Block, and that segment has been flipped with the nomination ceremony, which now happens earlier in the episode.

Honestly, to really understand what happened in those 24 hours after Thursday’s live show ended, just go download the latest episode of the Big Brother Gossip Show. Outside of footage from the noms and competition, everything that is shown tonight was discussed on last night’s podcast.

So let’s get going tonight’s broadcast, starting with the reaction to Derrick and Nicole’s HOH victories. Derrick dedicates his win to Team America (Fuck Yeah) and his “boys in blue”. Nicole acts happy, but admits that she didn’t want to win. She wasn’t on anybody’s “radar”, but now that she has to actually make a game move she could be targeted in the future. (Sorry, but I feel she’s worthless.)

Zach is seen heading into a side room and collapsing. “The Zach Attack is back”, he says in the diary room. “There’s 150% chance Devin is the next one out the door.” Devin, meanwhile, says that in the days leading up to the eviction, he was feeding little tidbits of information to hopefully move the target to other Bomb Squad members. We then get flashbacks of Devin telling Jocasta and Brittany about the Bomb Squad, followed by a similar chat with Donny. “I was flabbergasted”, says Donny. Devin thinks he’s smart to be the first one to inform everybody, although he truly wasn’t the first (others had done the same thing).

Devin now pulls Derrick into a room to tell him that he doesn’t want to be backdoored. He just wants to be put up. Derrick says he is struggling not to laugh at this, as there is no way he’s going to let Devin have two opportunities to save himself.

Derrick continues to make his rounds, as he now gets “advice” from Caleb. Derrick repeats what Devin just told him, and Caleb agrees it’s “the end of the road for him”. Meanwhile, Nicole is talking with Christine, who is now fully in line with her and Hayden since there’s no more Bomb Squad. Of course, she now also has to babble about her association with those jackasses. Enough with the Bomb Squad! We get more flashbacks of the expanded formation of the stupid group, and Nicole laughs at Christine’s story. She asks if they knew anything about their little group, and Christine tells her “you’re gold”. “That’s a stupid name”, says Nicole, who says she has no choice but to continue to trust Christine.

The cutesy music comes on, which obviously means it’s “who wants to see my HOH room” time. Blah. Wake me when this is over.

Cheese moment over, it’s time for Derrick to kiss Nicole’s ass as he informs her what she’s going to do. He says it’s great that the two of them finally get to chat, as they’re both superfans. He tells her that his main target is Devin, but Nicole replies that she’s scared to talk to him. Finally, Nicole says she wants to work with him, but we get the dreaded “no blood on our hands” cliche. They go through who they don’t want to put up, and Derrick finally puts Amber’s name in her head. Derrick knows that if Amber goes up, Caleb will want to go up in response. Jocasta’s name comes up because she may be a vote for Devin, but the fourth name is still in question.

After a commercial break, we get some fluff as Hayden and Nicole flirt. Awful. This is godawful. CBS even hash tags it their first date. Move on. Now.

Back to the game. Caleb comes up to the HOH, and Derrick informs him that Nicole is putting up Amber. Devin is still the goal, but Amber is going up because she had put up Nicole earlier this season. Dumb Caleb jumps to the bait, and does exactly as planned because of the dreaded “action speaks louder” than words cliched. “The guy’s a stud.” Ugh, go away. You’re worse than the other fake relationship.

Caleb rushes downstairs to tell his lady what he’s doing for his princess. “I told him to put me up to throw it to keep you safe.” Ugh, you’re a moron. He wants her to tell her if that’s ok, but she says she doesn’t want him to do that. No means yes, though, in Caleb’s feeble brain. He even replies that Amber’s sister is sitting at home thinking she “needs to marry that guy”. Amber’s response? “You’re dumb.”

Nicole now decides to talk to Donny. She tells him that she is probably putting up Amber, and Donny says that’s a good idea. He asks who Derrick is putting up, and is surprised to hear that it’s possibly Caleb. She wants to know who else she put up, and Donny hints that Christine should go up because she was also in the Bomb Squad. “You do what you need to do”, he finally says. “Is your buddy your buddy?”

Donny now informs the plan to Jocasta and Brittany. Amber walks into the living room and hears the conversation, and runs upstairs to tell Nicole and Christine. Those three are obviously now working together is her conclusion, and Nicole is now pissed about Donny. “He’s the one stirring things up”, and she tells Christine what Donny had told her earlier. Hmmm, there’s some stuff missing from this, such as Victoria actually being the original fourth nominee, but was dropped because she freaked out.

After more commercials, Derrick and Nicole read through the HOH script and go through the motions of placing the keys before heading downstairs. Nicole goes first, and her nominees are Amber and Donny. She tells Amber it’s because she nominated her before, and she says she was given last minute information on Donny that caused her to put him up.

Derrick then nominates Jocasta and Caleb. His reason for Jocasta is because she’s been described as a floater, but he knows that’s not the case. He then informs the house that Caleb has volunteered to go up, so he’s honoring that dumb request.

After the ceremony, Devin walks by Nicole saying “the back door is the only door”. He adds in the diary room that usually being nominated is a bad thing, “but in my case it would have been a good thing”. They’re scared of him, obviously, so they’re pushing him out the backdoor. Donny says that he was surprised by his nominations, especially after their earlier conversation.

More fluff, as Hayden wants to give Nicole a hug. She jokes that she wants to self-evict, and is sad that everybody is so upset at her. She wishes that she had not nominated Donny.

Derrick is now seen talking to Frankie and Zach about Devin. He’s “making a stink”, reports Frankie. At that very moment, Devin rings the HOH bell. “It’s all good, bro. I already know what’s up. Why would you let me compete twice.” He says in the diary room that he’s trying to make amends and show some class. Yeah, right. Derrick’s not buying it, either.

Time for more fluff, as people ask about Frankie’s family. You know, we almost went a whole episode without a mention of Frankie’s famous sister. Oh look, Victoria also makes an appearance for the first time this episode. (BTW, you can tell this is old footage because Amber’s hair is straight.)

If that wasn’t bad enough, it’s time for more fluff. The Team America mission is announced to Derrick, and they have to convince three people to spread a rumor that somebody in the house is related to a past Big Brother contestant. Derrick runs into the storage room to inform Frankie and Donny. Frankie thinks it’s going to be easy, and they decided the rumor is that Zach is related to Amanda from last year.

Now Nicole is crying because of her nomination of Donny, and the “pretty” piano music comes up as she apologizes. He tries to cheer her up, and he says that he’s not mad. Nicole then explains why she did it, and I’m officially tired of this conversation. I’m so over Nicole.

And it’s now time for the Battle of the Block. It’s a Harry Potter-ish theme, and Donny is impressed with the hedges. He’s a groundskeeper, you know. The nominees must run across the yard to grab puzzle pieces, and they are then handed to the other person who is being lifted up and down to put them in place.

We get some unnecessary descriptions and pleas before the contest begins, and the silly commentary continues on. We learn that Caleb is a natural competitor, Donny loves puzzles, and Amber hates puzzles. Jocasta is having problems, though, so Caleb doesn’t actually have to throw this comp (although he later claims he did).

Needless to say, Donny and Amber indeed win the competition, which means that the two nominees are Jocasta and Caleb, Derrick is now the sole HOH, as Nicole is (thankfully) dethroned.A rare TV appearance by Victoria

So after some cheesy effects to make it appear as if Nicole disappeared, that’s it for tonight. Frankly, I was less than enchanted with this episode. What did you think? Are you getting tired of Nicole’s whiny attitude? Or Caleb’s cocky idiocy? Will Devin go home on Thursday? Tell us what you think?
