As expected, today and tonight was a mixture of mini-scrambles and chats about the upcoming eviction, HOH competition, and who people within various alliances will nominate if they should win.
Now that The Detonators alliance is solidified, there were a lot of chats between various members of that group about who to put up if two of their members should win. All of them are a combination of people like Victoria/Jocasta/Brittany/and possibly Amber or Donny.
Donny had an interesting conversation with Caleb at the chess table tonight where he told Hayden that he trusted him completely but that Zach and Cody like to hang out with "the enemy". Donny seems to consider the enemy to be Derrick. He told Hayden that he knows that Derrick had to know that he was going to be nominated and that it wasn't just Nicole's decision this past week. He also said he wouldn't mind seeing Derrick feel the block a little bit.
Derrick and Cody (now called The Hitmen) had a few discussions about who they would prefer up and out this week and also in the future. The both agree that this week either Jocasta or Victoria or Brittany can go and that Donny could also go if they got the chance to send him out because they feel like that would leave Brittany and Jocasta pretty powerless. As far as future plans, they say after they get down to just the 5 in their alliance, they would like Frankie to be the first to go. Derrick says Frankie makes him nervous with his game. (please please please let them go after him soon!)
Speaking of Frankie... Zach was back to his old bad habits of telling Frankie too many things tonight. When Frankie pointedly asked him what the name of his alliance with Cody and Derrick was, he told him it was called Los Tres Amigos. I'm pretty worried that Zach's trust in Frankie will be a big part of his demise in the game if he doesn't knock it off. The two of them also had a really late night/early morning chat about alcohol and weed use and withdrawal. It appears for now they are holding to their final 2 deal. I don't expect Frankie to stick with that at all though. For the record, I also can't read Zach at this point when it comes to Frankie. He agrees each and every time someone mentions wanting him to go soon and even adds his own reasons for not trusting him, but he still gives Frankie more info than he needs to when talking to him. I can't tell if he really does trust Frankie, or if it's just bad game play and saying too much on his part. Either way, I hope it doesn't kill his game for him.
As far as game talk goes, that is mostly it. However, there were some insanely funny moments over the course of the night as well. I am not even sure how the conversation started or how Zach ended up trapped with Caleb in the HOH room, but what followed was one of the most hilarious conversations I've heard in a while. Caleb is very VERY sure that he is going to be very VERY famous when he leaves the BB house. This hasn't been a secret or anything, but he really laid it all out there tonight. There was much talk of airports and restaurants being alerted before he arrives in his limo and the appearances he will be willing to do. Events like "Go hunting with the Beastmode Cowboy from BB 16", and let us not forget that when he comes into any town now, it will be on the front page of the paper. There was also a lot of Amber talk in there about how he is done with her (and yet can't stop talking about her) and how he thinks she and Cody are the ones in a showmance right now. I really don't know how Zach kept a straight face listening to all of this, but if you have the feeds, I highly suggest flashing back and listening to at least a little of it. I believe the convo was around 11pm BB time.
I should also mention that before that conversation, there was a titilating conversation about Caleb's breasts being sore (see what I did there?) and going to the medic to have his estrogen levels checked.
After Zach escaped the conversation with Caleb, there was more hilarity down in the bathroom area when a few of the various HGs were sharing their "numbers"..sexually speaking, and being silly in general. The most amusing part of the conversation was that it was in stark contrast to the literal Bible study going on merely feet away in the Hive Room. During this conversation, Christine and Zach also agreed that they should see if they could get the house to cheer louder than the audience when Devin walks out the door tomorrow night.
That's about it for tonight. Everyone seems to be winding down for bed. Most of them think today will bring an endurance comp. I really don't know if it will or won't. Usually we can tell in advance what kind of comps are likely to be coming, but this year with the two HOH twist, it's hard to know how they will play it. I wouldn't mind seeing a good endurance comp, though I fear that Frankie may win one of the HOH spots if that happens... I hate to admit it, but he has the want to win one and I'm pretty sure he has the ability. What I would LIKE to see happen would be some controversial HOHs and some controversial nominees so that we get a more interesting week. With this safe easy get Devin out week, we didn't see very much action.
We shall see what tomorrow brings after eviction. I still expect Devin to definitely go with a vote of either 11-0 or 9-2 if Christine and Nicole throw their wonky votes. As always you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates. Until tomorrow night...
