Big Brother Gossip Show #406: Death Or Glory

In advance, we apologize.

Due to some technical issues, we were 20 minutes late in starting tonight's broadcast. A few people in chat didn't take kindly to our problems, and their whining led us (meaning Scott) to vent a little bit in the early portion of the broadcast.

After the tirade, though, the show carried on as usual, and it turned out to be one of the best we've put out. There's (finally) a new intro, and we spent lots of time talking about the two tragic deaths of family members, Zach's insane HOH reign, and a certain cowboy still infatuated with a pretty little model.

It's a long one, though, as we almost hit the two in a half hour mark. Grab it anyway from the usual sources, including iTunes and Stitcher. Or...

Thanks to Colette for her spot-on opinions, and of course our buddy Mike. Also special thanks to Ash for her help in grabbing audio! Don't forget to leave comments on iTunes!

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 14 Recap

At first glance, this should have been an ordinary episode. The question of who was going to be evicted was decided last Saturday when the veto competition occurred, outside of a moment or two where Cody questioned his decision on a replacement nominee (as shown last night).

Then out of the blue came big news out of the house. Frankie’s grandfather died, and last night he was given the news in the form of a letter. This created an entire evening of grieving and remembrance, culminating in a bizarre commercial-free half-hour of Frankie addressing the cameras on TVGN’s Big Brother After Dark.

Obviously, this news is going to be covered on tonight’s show, but to what extent? Will it be told in a traditional segment of house happenings, or will Julie also interview him? I have mixed feelings on this topic, which you’ll hear on this weekend’s Big Brother Gossip Show.

Until then, let’s get to the start of the broadcast with the reactions to Donny going on the block in place of Victoria. Who? Donny is upset that he was put up after being promised safety, but “you don’t take anybody’s word for what they say”. Brittany tells him that he “was the only person I was hoping wouldn’t be sitting by my side”. He responds with a joke that loses its translation when printed here, as most of Donny’s jokes tend to be. Brit says it sucks to be nominated next to him, as he’s been by her side through the whole game. She doesn’t want to campaign against him.

Cody is now shown upstairs being a pussy. He’s mad at himself and paces the HOH. Donny “doesn’t deserve to be on the block”, he says. He starts breathing heavy, and Cody hopes this “doesn’t come around to bite me on the butt”. He then heads outside, and Frankie and others tell him it’s the smartest move he could make. “I feel like such a fuckign bitch”, he says.

Frankie then runs after Donny to ask him if he’s ok, and tells him that he has his vote to stay. “We think it’s going to be unanimous for you, honestly.” Donny says he appreciates that.

Derrick then heads in to talk to Donny, and tells him that he’s safe. Donny knows that Cody has people directing him, and thinks Derrick is the “kingpin. I hope I’m wrong.” Cody also talks to him, acknowledging that he knows Donny is going to be mad. He tells him that this is the only way to ensure Brit goes home, but Donny says he was “looking at it another way. You have this other big alliance that you like, and you do like me, but you were willing to risk me.” Cody doesn’t respond to that little line of questioning, but does tell him that he thinks it will be a unanimous vote. Donny’s not convinced. “Pawns do go home.”

It’s now time for Brit to campaign, and she starts with Caleb because “he has a big influence on a lot of the other house guests”. She butters him up by telling him that, and adds that Donny is actually a bigger threat. The “deserve” line also comes up, and Caleb says that Brit staying would be better for him. “If you’re not coming for me, why would I not?”

Caleb is then upstairs complaining that it’s not right that Victoria is going to last longer than Brittany. She’s fought for her life, after all, and if Donny wins the next HOH he’s going to put up two of them. “We have to protect that.” Silly Caleb still believes the Bomb Squad exists. Derrick plays up to it, and says that maybe they should all evict Donny. Silly boys.

Now we get the Frankie segment. Julie introduces it, and we hear Frankie being called to the diary room. He’s give the letter from hsi family, and breaks down in tears. He comes back out to the living room and announces that his grandfather has died. The entire house comes down, and Brittany reads his letter to the house. He then talks about the man, and laughs at how the letter said that grandpa didn’t understand how the show worked. He also talks about how accepting he was of him coming out, and they all end up in a group hug. That was surprisingly low-key.

A moment of silence leads into commercials, and Julie addresses the house when we return. She offers condolences to Frankie, and then asks Caleb about not taking the veto. He says that he has “stuff at home that I have to pay”, and felt safe this week. Zach is asked what his reaction was, and he says that he was just happy that nobody took his trip to Germany away from him. Cody is asked what the hardest part of the week was, and he says it was putting up a replacement nominee.

Julie then announces that Have-Nots are back this week, and the four are the “laziest players in the game” judged by their Fitbits. “Amber, how do you think you did this week?” She thinks her cleaning helped her pad her stats. Christine is asked who is definitely a Have-Not, and she says “honestly, probably Zach”. Julie announces the bottom four, which are Nicole, Caleb, Christine, and Derrick. She reminds them that if they become HOH, they won’t be a Have-Not.

Oh lord, we have another Nicole/Hayden segment. Anybody that reads these recaps know my feelings on this idiocy, so I’ll just be quiet here. The families are also brought in for this segment, and it’s a complete bore.

More adverts and we’re at the final pleas. Brittany goes first, and she just babbles about “proving herself”. She thinks that the soccer punishment was proof of this, and pleads for “one more chance”. Donny then thanks God for the opportunity to “play this game I love”, and thanks his family. To the rest of the cast, he says “there’s a special place in my heart for each and every one of you. God bless  you all, and God bless America”.

Voting then starts with Jocasta, who votes to evict Brittany, as does Nicole, Hayden, and Amber before we head to commercials. After the show comes back, the votes still go against Brit. Derrick goes first with his vote, followed by Caleb, Christine, Victoria (who?), Zach, and Frankie. Yep, it’s unanimous. Snore.

As always, Julie then announces the vote, and Brit mouths “wow” before slowly heading towards the door. “Don’t trust Zach”, she tells Jocasta.

After the awkward stare at the memory board moment, Julie starts the interview by asking about the vote count. Brit says she was kind of expecting it, because too many people don’t vote for their own best interests. People like Caleb control the house, and the girls are weak players, in her eyes. Julie then asks why she was such a target. “It was easier to put up the same people, as there weren’t targets on their back.”

The soccer comp is then brought up, to cheers from the crowd, and Brit says her feet are now “disgusting. It looks like I have a plum underneath my toenail.”

The goodbye messages are then played. Zach says it was better for his game to see her go. “We had become kind of friends, but if I never see you again I don’t really care.” Jocasta says it was a tough choice, but she had to be loyal to Donny for saving her. Hayden says she was too “unpredictable”. Donny says that he hopes she is seeing this video, as there “are only two choices - me and you”. He says she’s “been dealt a bad hand in this game. I’m going ot miss our little ice cream dates”. Julie then asks if she’s happy to be gone, and Brit starts crying about being away from her kids. They are then brought on stage, with one carrying a soccer ball. Hmmm, I don’t think I’ve seen this happen before. I’m not sure I’m happy with this warm and fuzzy version of Big Brother.

Ok then, it’s time for the HOH competition. It’s a one on one competition, where a “country” song will describe a competition. The first to pick whether it’s a HOH, BOB, of POV stays in the game. An incorrect answer also evicts them, and if neither answer they’re both out. They do this dumb comp every year. Come on, Big Brother. Let’s show some originality.

First up is Christine versus Hayden, and Christine correctly picks HOH. She chooses Donny and Jocasta to be the next up, and Donny is right on with BOB. He picks Frankie and Caleb, and the Frankie beats the beast mode moron with BOB. Frankie has Amber and Victoria (who?) go against each other, and Amber is right on with POV.

Donny and Derrick then go head to head, and Derrick moves on with a HOH answer. Zach and Nicole are then selected, and Zach is correct with POV. He chooses Amber and Christine to go up next, and Christine beats her with BOB. Frankie and Derrick then go up, and Derrick is heard saying “you want to see your grandfather?” He steps back and lets Frankie pick HOH. He is now the first HOH, and Christine and Zach are up to find out who is the second one. Zach picks BOB, and wins! Frankie and Zach are the new HOH’s!

Ok, time for a little bitching here. Last night, after Frankie got his letter, most of the house decided to throw tonight’s HOH in order for Frankie to get pictures of his grandfather. It’s clear long before Derrick’s lay down that the various pairs were decided to ensure that indeed happens. This is silliness, in my opinion. None of these people deserve to win this season. This is no longer the cutthroat Big Brother I’ve loved for over a decade. It’s a farce, with a cast that’s too chickenshit to do anything that shows any type of true gameplay.

At least Julie questions Derrick about this move, but we get nothing but rainbows and lollipops in return. Ugh. Frankie then breaks down into tears as we head to credits.

There’s one more piece of silliness before we sign off. Julie has to announce the latest Team America (Fuck Yeah!) garbage, and this time they have to get two people to argue at the nominations or the veto meeting. Who cares?

I’m sorry I’m so negative, but this is turning into my least favorite season ever. I’m trying to remain positive, but it’s next to impossible. What do you think? Are you disappointed? What did you think of the house throwing that comp? Tell me what you think!

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 13 Recap

It’s a pretty straightforward episode tonight. There’s some wheeling and dealing, a veto competition, and a veto ceremony. Plus, there’s bound to be lots and lots of filler.

The wheeling and dealing section of the broadcast could be interesting, though, as we had a few moments of excitement on the feeds right before they went black for the ceremony. If edited correctly, this should be a bit infuriating to those who want a certain person out of the house as soon as possible.

So let’s get started with the reactions to the Amber and Jocasta Battle of the Block victory. The victors are already inside changing clothes to the refrain of plenty of “Praise Jesus” chants from Jocasta. Amber replies that “I told these boys not to mess with me”. She is a tough competitor, you know.

Cody hopes nothing goes wrong in the veto comp, because, as you may guess, he doesn’t want any “blood on my hands”. I hate that cliche! Frankie is heading upstairs with Cody to wash the “tar” off his body, and he’s still happy even though his nominees are off the block. “I’m chilling.”

Brittany is now taking a nap, but a sly smiling Zach is bugging her about not being happy. “How comes you don’t talk to me?” This causes a reaction from Brit, who complains that nobody ever talks to her. “Everybody is acting like I’m shunned.” She complains that everybody is against her, and Cody put her up because she didn’t put her tits in his face. “I’m all alone in this house. All alone.”

Victoria is then seen saying the exact same thing to Hayden. Well, except for the part about her breasts. “I look so stupid on TV.” Well, that is true. “I bet America is laughing at me right now.” She complains that she doesn’t trust anybody, and being in the house is “torture”.

Half the house is now upstairs in the HOH, and Cody’s legs are laying over Amber’s. Uh oh. Caleb quietly wanders up just as Cody is “warming up” Amber’s fingers. He says he’s being “stealth” to see “exactly what’s going on in that HOH room”. The “stealth mode cowboy” is nto happy with what he sees, and gives them both the death stare. Just as quickly as he walks in, he goes right back out. “Awkward!”, screams Christine.

Caleb runs down to complain to Zach about Cody’s constant attention to Amber. Zach says that he’s like that with all of the girls, but Caleb says he should have “the respect and dignity” to do that to a guy that has done “everything” for this girl. Zach just sits there and eggs him on, and laughs in the diary room that “she’s not into you”, and promises to run upstairs to tell Cody all about this conversation.

Brit now walks outside and sees an irritated Caleb. “I’m just tired of the no appreciation”. It’s just wrong how Amber doesn’t just get down on her knees in front of her savior. “It’s just irritating to me.” An equally upset Brit whines about Cody’s flirtatious manner, and also how she’s always paired up with that worthless Victoria in the BOB competitions. Caleb claims that she has his vote to stay. After all, she “deserves to stay more...at the end of the day”. In the diary room, Brit admits that she doesn’t really trust Caleb, but she does need somebody to have her back.

Meanwhile, Zach is indeed reporting that Caleb is pissed off at Cody. “I literally don’t give a fuck”, replies Cody. “He’s pissed off because of a girl he’s creepily obsessed with.” Zach adds that Caleb claims that Cody says he’s putting a target on his back. “I don’t want him pissing me off in this game.”

Time to pick veto players, and another “blood on my hands” line. Ugh, knock it off! Cody goes first, and pulls Zach’s chip. “It’s time for Zach Attack!” Victoria gets Nicole, while Brit gets “house guest choice”. Who does she pick? Caleb. WTF? What a dummy! Cody is flabbergasted, but Brit says she picked him because he “looked yummy in that shirt”.

Cody is now talking to Caleb, who says he has no idea why Brit picked him to play. Nevertheless, he wants Victoria to go home and pumps up the greatness of Brittany. Cody is getting even more pissed, and hints that he may have to do something about this situation.

After a commercial break, it’s veto competition time. The backyard is set up like a soccer stadium, and Frankie’s overdone hosting is already driving me nuts. Before the competition begins, they are given the news of Germany’s world cup victory. The game is played by “kicking” a soccer ball into a net filled with sections that have points. The player with the lowest score is eliminated, and they have to pick a “prize”. Subsequent losers get the choice of their prize, or anybody who is lower than them.

Victoria is up first, and scores a 50. “Touchdown!” Ugh. Cody again mentions blood on his hands, but only gets a four. “I’m pretty much an idiot.” Caleb gets a 20, while Zach gets 50. A purposely confused Nicole claims that she has never heard of soccer, and gets a 20. Brit is last, and her ball bounces out of the one spot into the ten. Cody is the first out, and his prize is the veto! Too bad he won’t be holding onto that long.

The second round starts with a 22 from Caleb, followed by 5 from Zach and 20 by Nicole. Brit’s ball doesn’t even land in the net. Victoria gets a 28, so Brit is now out! “That fashion show girl is still in the game”, complains Brit. Her “prize” is a “penalty kick”, which means that for the next 24 hours she must get kicked by the apparatus. She obviously trades that with Cody’s veto.

No need to go through the individual scores from here on out. The next round gives Zach the boot, and he wins a trip to Germany. He keeps it, and pleads to all the single hot girls to contact him. The fourth round sees Nicole’s departure from the game, and she “won” a penalty where she has to kick 2400 goals in the next 24 hours. She trades it for Nicole’s veto, who wants to now kick her 2400 times.

It’s now the final round - Victoria versus Caleb. Who would have guessed? Victoria goes first, and kicks it out of the net. Caleb just has to land in the net and he has won. Guess what he does? Yep, he gets a 50. Victoria’s prize is $5,000, which she trades with Nicole for the veto. Caleb then pulls out the Germitard, but instead of trading it for the veto he grabs the five grand from Nicole. Everybody is stunned? “He’s definitely not a team player”, says Donny. “He’s the Dumbo of all Dumbo’s.” Donny couldn’t be more pleased, and he “hopes it’s the Dumbo.”

Victoria is obviously pleased to win the veto, especially since she likes jewelry so much. (Ugh.) Brittany is not as happy. “I just feel really alone in the house.” Cody again mentions blood on his hands, and is furious at Caleb. “He’s looking really good as a replacement.” Nominee, that is, not the seminal band from Minneapolis.

More adverts before we get back to people bitching about Caleb (and another “blood on my hands” comment). Twice, actually. Frankie doesn’t want to put Caleb up, though. “Stick to the plan!”

Downstairs, Amber asks Brit how she’s doing. You know that answer, especially now that she also has this 2400 goal punishment. Zach figures that she just has to get 100 per hour, and puts his face behind the goal as an incentive.

Donny doesn’t want to be a pawn, so he has to actually talk some game. He wants to get Caleb put up, and Zach doesn’t disagree. Donny says that if he’s not put up, he’s just going to get cockier and cockier. Caleb’s “a love struck, Fruit Loop, dingus hooligan”, scream Zach in the diary room. He firmly believes they have the numbers to send him to “Kentucky, where he belongs”.

Back to Brittany, who is taking a little nap as a break. Donny helps her up, and sits with her as she continues to kick. “She was a trooper”, says Donny. A sleeping Cody is also pulled out of bed for another penalty kick, and once more right after he climbs back in bed. “I’m exhausted...I’m completely losing it.” He even does it at one point without the buzzer going off.

Brit has now hit the 2000 mark, and she’s in complete pain. She believes that she’s going to prove that she’s actually a strong person, and Hayden starts screaming encouragement. Cue the anthemic music as she approaches 2400, and everybody screams in excitement when she does hit that final goal.

Back upstairs, though, Zach still wants to see Caleb go home. He has a series of reasons, including the fact that Caleb will go after Cody. Derrick wants Donny to be put up instead to ensure that Brit goes home. “It’s a layup.” All of the Detonators go back and forth on which one to put up.

More adverts before we return to see Donny in a rare visit to the HOH. Donny advises him that he needs to play his own game, and not just do what the others want him to do. What would his family want him to do? “My brother would call me a pussy”, replies Cody. “This is the week for you to drive the line in the sand”, says Donny. “Just do what you need to do. If it’s me, I won’t hold it against you. I’ll hold it against them.” Why, Donny, why would you give him this out? Cody then says he won’t put Donny on the block, and they hug.

Cody walks outside and announces to Frankie and Hayden that he’s putting up Caleb. He still wants Brit evicted, and is ok with Caleb now coming after him. “He fucked me, so he’s going up.” Frankie is pissed, and runs inside to do damage control. He wakes up Derrick to inform him, although they’re interrupted by Amber.Derrick only has minutes to change Cody’s mind.

Derrick tells him that Brit is going to play them, and Caleb will end up going home. Cody says Donny has done nothing to hurt them. Derrick replies that ultimately it’s his choice. We’re missing the “but…” that actually ended that chat.

What will Cody do? We have to sit through three minutes of commercials to find out. Woah, for once there’s actually some drama about what may happen (unless you watch the live feeds, that is). Oh yeah, we get another dumb Team America (Fuck Yeah!) mission. It’s dumb, so I’m going to ignore it. You should do the same.

Victoria is all dolled up to go through the veto ceremony, and somehow she manages to get through the script and poses. Cody says he still has no idea what he’s going to do. Victoria stands and obviously saves herself.

Cody then stands and congratulates Victoria. He says it’s a tough decision, and throws out another “blood on my hands” comment, and ends it by saying he hopes there’s no hard feelings before putting up...Donny.

Donny? Why, Cody, why? Your brother is right! You could have been a hero! What a disaster!

Donny is not happy, but he knows there are “other people involved who are in his ear”. Brit is heartbroken to be sitting next to Donny, but she has to “lie, cheat, or steal” to ensure she stays. Frankie, though, is happy that Cody didn’t go through with his plan to evict Caleb. Too bad for Team America (Fuck Yeah!), which gets a small coda at the end of his diary room comment.

So that’s it! What did you think? Were you hoping for Caleb to go up? Tell me what you think about everything that happened tonight!

Big Brother Season 16, Episode 12 Recap

When we last saw the Big Brother cast, they were paired up in teams and were transferring eggs through chicken wire. Tonight’s episode is bound to be jam-packed, as we will be shown the “highlights” of that competition, the reactions, nominations, and the Battle of the Block competition.

Forgive me, my friends, if tonight’s recap isn’t as thorough as usual. I’m a bit distracted tonights, as I should be in Lousiville, KY for a music festival featuring The Replacements. They are hitting the stage at the exact same moment as Big Brother starts, and my phone is bound to be going off left and right with reactions and setlist updates.

I must still laugh at CBS milking this phony plot to evict Caleb last week. There was NEVER any possibility of that happening. Oh well, let’s ignore the rest of the intro recap, and go right into the HOH competition. Honestly, this is not one of the more exciting comps to watch, let alone design. That doesn’t stop CBS from giving us diary room segments from almost the entire house describing how it works. They all “have” to win, you know, although for some of them it’s only to see their kids.

Victoria isn’t doing well, and Caleb’s “man hands” make him useless. Yeah, that’s the reason. Jocasta and Britney appear to be doing pretty well, however, with Donny and Hayden right behind them. Oh wait, Zach just told Amber he loves her. I hope Caleb didn’t hear that! Frankie and Cody say they started off just moving one egg at a time, but quickly realized they need to each be working on an egg at the same time. Really, it took you that long to figure that out?

Britney and Jocasta slow down a bit, and Frankie and Cody pass them up, with little help from Derrick’s non-stop encouragement and advice. This pisses off Donny, as he is also in Team America with Derrick.

Silly music comes on Victoria continues to drop eggs. Christine makes a comment about makeup, and the rest of the house make horrible puns about her performance. Please, knock it off.

Zach and Amber jump into the lead, with most of the house (except Victoria and Christine) right behind them. We get some more “I have to win” comments from the likes of Zach and Amber, and they do look like they’re going to win. Cody says it’s time to step it up as they go down to the final egg, and they finally place get their final egg across the fence. Cody and Frankie are the new HOH’s.

Yes, there’s a lot of footage of Frankie celebrating, and Cody claims to be wondering if Caleb could possibly be his target for the week. At the same time, Caleb and Derrick both talk about how this should be an easy week for them. Derrick adds that although the Bomb Squad is no more, the remnants of that alliance are still strong.

Zach rushes into the room to congratulate Frankie, starting off with how he wants to “bang” him. Yep, that’s a way to Frankie’s heart. Zach already knows who he thinks should go up, but wants to find out who will be the fourth nominee. Frankie doesn’t want to talk about that yet, though.

Donny and Brittany are now eating ice cream, and she tells him that she doesn’t feel safe right now. You think? She knows the “Bomb Squad still kind of exists”, which means she’ll have to go up. She starts crying, and says she “feels uncomfortable whenever somebody becomes HOH”. Donny gives her some words of encouragement, but even he says he’s worried.

Ugh, it’s the “who wants to see my HOH room” segment. You guys know my feelings on this segment, especially given that Frankie is involved. Seriously, this sucks. Plus, we get more Ariana Grande chatter. Go away.

With that useless junk over, it’s back to more game talk. Five people are in the HOH room, and Zach notes that the current combo of people in the room is kind of “funny”. Derrick doesn’t get his reference, but it’s pointed out that it’s what is left of the Bomb Squad, minus Caleb, Amber, and Devin. Wait, they don’t consider Caleb part of their alliance any more? Um, no. These five (Frankie, Cody, Christine, Derrick, and Zach) are the new alliance, and they call themselves the Detonators. Yeah, exciting.

We come back from commercials to some fluffy filler, and it’s about the hotness of Zac Effron. But it’s three guys talking about him. I don’t get it. We even get diary room talk from Cody about the hotness of this actor. Why?

Woof, thankfully that’s over. Too bad it’s replaced by Frankie screaming over getting the next Team America (Fuck Yeah!) mission. They have to push the nomination of a “physical threat” to be nominated this week. It’s completely stupid, and we talked about it last night on the Big Brother Gossip Show. Footage is shown of Frankie running off to tell Derrick, and they decide Amber is the biggest female physical threat of the house. Hmmm, Derrick says the Team America alliance is their main alliance. Tell Donny that, kids. Well, they do tell Donny about the mission, but they clearly don’t really consider him a part of their group.

It’s time for the main theme of the week - Brittany whining. She has cornered Frankie, and claims to be the “old girl” in the house. She doesn’t throw herself at Cody like the other girls, and Frankie runs right upstairs to tell him. He’s insulted that she would insinuate that he would make his nominations based on flirting. “It’s insulting.”

The next scene is Cody sitting in the kitchen with Brittany. She has been up all night (this was early morning), and she is telling him that she’s “kind of over it”. She can’t deal with the “fakeness and lies. Maybe I’m just like too old for it.” He responds with the accusation he heard from Frankie, and Brittany doesn’t deny it. This doesn’t go over well with Cody. “It’s making my nomination process a lot easier.”

There’s more adverts, and we get back to Frankie and Caleb hanging out in the HOH bed. At the same time, Amber is hanging out with Cody in the other HOH bed. She gets up and kicks the door shut, and Caleb immediately starts freaking out. Cody mentions this, and Amber tells him that he’s her best guy friend. In the diary room, Cody claims to be thinking about putting up Caleb.

Zach is now making fun of Victoria in front of a number of people. Uh oh, it’s “bedgate” time, as nobody wants to share a bed with her. The problem is that Victoria is so high maintenance, and keeps people up at night. It is silly, but was a main topic of discussion for close to 24 hours. Brittany gets especially riled up after a comment from Victoria, and pulls her aside in the bathroom. “Oh really, it’s that much of a big deal to sleep with me?”, Victoria says in the diary room.

We now see the “Nominations Today” sign on the TV, and Amber pulls Frankie into the storage room to see if she’s going up. She’s not happy when she finds out that she is going to be nominated. Frankie assures her that she’s going to be safe, and we get the stupid “no blood on my hands” line from him. Amber wants to know why she’s the pawn every time instead of Christine, or why none of the guys have to take their turn.

There’s more commercials, and we get to the nominations. Frankie and Cody both talk about their mindset (including Team America), and the house is then brought in. Cody goes first with his nominations, and they are Victoria and Brittany. He says he’s doing it “based only on not knowing where you guys are at in the game”.

After an over-dramatic flip of the head, Frankie announces Amber and Jocasta as his nominees. He pumps them both up, and says he loves them both. At the end of the day, he doesn’t really give any reasons.

Brittany is really pissed, but it’s mainly because she was compared to Victoria, who does nothing in the house. Jocasta says she’s “determined to fight in Battle of the Block”. Victoria just talks, but makes no sense.

Victoria takes Cody into a room, and tears up even though she says she doesn’t care. Cody says she’s not really a target to go, and says in the diary room that it “takes a huge toll” to make people sad.

Derrick and Frankie celebrate the Team America victory, but again they do it without their third member, Donny.

Christine is talking to Amber in the bathroom, and Amber complains how the boys never have to do their share of playing the pawn. “Why can’t any of the other guys step up?” Amber says she wants to talk to her and Nicole to ensure their safety and maybe go against the guys, and adds in the diary room that she “really trusts” Christine.

They’re joined by Jocasta and Brittany, who is still fuming about being compared to Victoria. “I’ve sacrificed everything just to be put on the block every week, and to be compared to somebody who is not even trying.” Yes, this is pretty accurate, as Brittany as whined about being “deserving” all week. The segment ends with Victoria uncomfortably walking into the bathroom.

The finale segment is the Battle of the Board, and it’s a giant chess board. They all have to move like a knight in chess, and wherever they land becomes their square that nobody else can stand on in the future. The last team standing wins.

Brittany says she has to win to “change things”, and Amber is still whining about being a pawn. Jocasta then makes the first move. It’s not exactly an exciting game, and the four girls also have no clue. Jocasta even says that her only game plan is “prayer”.

Victoria immediately begins frustrating Brittany, but it’s Jocasta who traps herself and gets knocked out first. Caleb says that he bets Amber wishes he was her “knight in shining armour”, protecting her in the game. Amber doesn’t need him, though, as Brittany is the next to be eliminated.

Then the weirdest thing happens. Out of nowhere, Jocasta’s jaw begins to shake. Her entire body quivers, and she begins speaking in tongues!!! I’m not making this up! It must have spurred on Amber, as she makes the final move that knocks out Victoria! Jocasta continue sto speak in tongues, as tar and feather is dropped on Frankie. Oh yeah, in her diary room commentary, Jocasta made it sound like she was the competition queen! She was out almost imediately!

There’s some final diary room comments as the show goes to credits, but you can probably guess what is said. It’s no different than usual.

What did you think of this episode? Were the games as underwhelming to you as they seemed to me? How about Jocasta’s antics during Battle of the Block? Let me know your thoughts!

Big Brother Gossip Show #405: Victor Victoria

What started off as a boring week turned into quite an intriguing weekend. Tonight's show discusses it all, including the shocking (and I mean shocking) victory by Victoria in the veto competition. Unfortunately, we were missing the talented Colette due to illness, but Mike and I did our best to provide all of the week's pertinent info from the week.

Grab this from the usual online sources, or...

Thanks to Mike for helping me out tonight, and for Ash with her hard work in providing the clips. And, most importantly, get well soon, Colette!!!
