Big Brother Season 16, Episode 16 Recap

Before we begin, a bit of an apology for the lack of Sunday recap. The truth is that sometime during that afternoon, I suddenly felt burnt out. The weekend was just way too buys. Besides Saturday’s Big Brother Gossip Show, I also had my music show on Friday night, and spent much of Saturday on a new BBG theme.

On Sunday, I had yet another job to do. I write for my local newspaper, and Sunday is the day that I transcribe musician interviews to turn into a story. Usually, these interviews are around fifteen minutes long, and it takes approximately two hours to transcribe and turn into a story.

This past week’s article, though, was much different. I interviewed Ian Astbury from The Cult, and he was a talker! I expected a normal type of chat, but it wasn’t until almost an hour later that I was able to wrap it up.

So after three hours of transcribing on Sunday, I was only a third of the way finished. I was in misery. I emailed my editor for a 24-hour extension, and then decided to just veg out in front of the TV. The last thing I wanted to do was to turn on my computer.

I finally did watch the episode, though, and there really wasn’t anything surprising or shocking. There was the usual segments inserted from previous days (or weeks), lots of fun footage of Zach acting like a loon, and the nominations and BOB winners we already knew. The only thing that came out of nowhere was some of Jocasta’s diary room comments. Who knew she could be funny?

So tonight’s episode is bound to be lots of fun. There will be plenty of antics from Zach, and also more insanity from Caleb. it’s a different kind of insanity this time, however!

Let’s get this over with, starting with the reactions to the not-so-shocking Nicole and Christine’s BOB victory over Jocasta and Victoria (who?). Frankie is shown heading up to the HOH, and he hugs Zach. Obviously, he’s pleased that he’s the “sole HOH of the week” who is now going to go after Amber. “We need to get Caleb on board.” Frankie and Zach talk about who they would pick to play in the veto if Frankie gets “house guest choice”. Zach adds in the diary room that he believes he’s in a great place because his boy is HOH, and “Amber has gotta go! Boom!”

Cute music comes up as Nicole and Christine celebrate. Ugh, I have to hear Nicole’s voice. It’s the worst. They’re both happy that Frankie is the sole HOH, as Zach is an “idiot”.

Meanwhile, Victoria (who?) is crying with Cody, and Jocasta walks in. Victoria blames Jocasta for their loss, but Jocasta blames Victoria. “Being partners with Victoria is like being partners with a toddler.” Jocasta attempts to give her a bit of a pep talk, but it does little good.

More filler, as Cody, Frankie, and Zach are once AGAIN talking about alliances. Cody doesn’t want to form a new one, so Zach says “if you’re not with us, you’re against us. We’re the ‘bros’”, and Hayden is supposedly included in this idiocy.

Zach then decides to go mess with the Have-Nots. His plan is to sit next to Christine and Nicole and eat snacks in front of them. Cody complains that “this kid is going so far overboard”. He asks them if they want some jerky, and then starts nibbling. Hey, anything that messes wtih that waste of space Nicole is great for me, especially when he adds “that’s what you get for being lazy”. Christine is pissed, and asks “why the heck am I still in an alliance with him?”

Cody and Frankie are also pissed, and are upstairs bitching about America’s favorite wild card. “He’s Devin”, says Cody. Frankie replies that if everybody wants him up, he’ll do just that. Sure you will, Frankie.

Frankie then attempts to calm down Zach. He asks him to not be so antagonistic with people, and says in the diary room it’s so that people don’t come to him begging to nominate Zach. “Ok, I just won’t open my mouth”, replies Zach. There’s one problem, however. Frankie is part of Team America (Fuck Yeah!), and still has to get two house guests to argue at the upcoming veto ceremony. “I need Zach to explode, but it has to be at the right time.” Frankie offers the suggestion of a veto speech, and Zach says he’ll do it “for me, for you, and for us”.

Ugh, another Nicole segment. She does the worst striptease ever to get rid of her Germitard, but Hayden claims it turns him on.

Now a dejected Victoria (who?) watches the boys play pool. I mean it’s ridiculous, as she cowers around the backyard wall. Hayden explains that he must remain friendly to her, as she can be used to help them, and then asks her if she’ll pick him for house guest choice in the veto comp. She replies, “if you want me to” as we see dumb Nicole turn her head to see Hayden draped over Victoria’s shoulders. “Are they making out?” Hayden promises to use the veto on her if he wins as Nicole wonders if they’re making out.

Hayden now gets the silent treatment. He asks Nicole if she wants to go in the hot tub, and then explains how he was cheering up Victoria by telling her to stop crying. Of course, Nicole believes Victoria wants him. She even asks Hayden if they made out. Ugh, she sucks. I’m sorry, but I just can’t hide it.

Uh oh, Derrick is now called to the diary room. He receives a letter stating that his grandfather passed away. He comes out and tells everybody, but says he needs time alone. He leaves the letter for the rest of the house to read, and heads into the have-not room to cry. Poor Derrick. Unlike a certain other person who received similar news, he handled it with complete class and grace.

Caleb is seen reading the letter, and the news spreads to the rest of the house. Derrick comes back out to the living room, and the house sits in silence. “I have to use this in a positive way to motivate me”, he adds in the diary room. “This is for you, Pepe.”

That’s a good spot for commercials, and we come back to Caleb and Amber in the kitchen. He asks her if pickles need to be refrigerated, but she doesn’t answer. There’s a flashback to Caleb’s “best date ever”, but he complains that she’s now ignoring him. “I have no idea why she’s acting the way she’s acting.” He continues on, as he has done all season, and the rest of the boys egg on his behavior by saying she doesn’t deserve him. It’s really ridiculous.

Caleb is seen pacing the backyard by himself, and he now claims he’s “no longer the romantic guy. I’m beastmode cowboy. Even if she tried to talk to me today, I’d say ‘you know what? Play your game, Amber’.”

Hmmm, from that we jump to Frankie and Zach’s homoerotic friendship. They give each other backrubs in bed, and pretty much just climb all over each other. “It’s too bad I”m not gay”, says Zach. “I’d absolutely marry you”, replies Frankie, who doesn’t believe he’s straight. “Zach, are you going to make a move? Just do it.”

Now it’s time to pick veto players. Jocasta is hoping she gets Donny’s name, as he’s saved her before. Frankie picks first, and indeed gets Donny. Victoria grabs the house guest choice, and picks Hayden. Nicole is not happy. Jocasta then pulls out Christine’s name, and for some reason screams it really loud. Christine is still pissed at being nominated, and says that if she wins she’ll keep the nominations the same. “I don’t want Amber out. They do.”

Zach and Frankie are happy with that draw, and celebrate in the kitchen. Amber comes into the same area, and says she wants the nominations to stay the same. “No more shady business.” Frankie lies and says he doesn’t think anything will change.

Most of the house is now seen in the living room, and stupid Caleb is dressed in the HOH robe. When Amber comes in and plops down on the couch, Caleb leaves the room. “I can’t even look at Amber right now”, he claims. “You want to play around and not want to talk to the king of this house...then why are you hear.”

Caleb ends up in the HOH, and tells Frankie and Jocasta about what happened. Frankie tells him to stay away from Amber. “My plan is literally falling into my lap”, he says in the diary room. Caleb adds that there is “no more romantic cowboy in this house”. What a loon.

After more commercials, it’s time for the veto competition. It’s a cowboy-themed competition, which obviously makes Caleb happy...even though he’s not playing in it. Donny claims to not be happy about the realistic-looking fake snakes.

So the contestants have to rock their “horse” sixty times to get thirty seconds of time to stack gold bars. There’s a little twist that if they fail, they can agree to slop for a week to stay in the game.There’s a lot of bad puns and claims of having to win the comp, but eventually Hayden does indeed win. BTW, what kind of coaching has turned on Jocasta in the past couple of episodes? She’s never this lively on the feeds. It certainly didn’t help her in the competition, as she was forced to take the week of slop to stay in the running.

Time for Operation Amber to begin after more adverts. The boys are all upstairs asking Hayden if he’s going to use the veto, and he says he will be using it on Victoria to backdoor Amber.

Amber now walks upstairs in booty shorts, and it’s pretty chilly in the room. Caleb just stares at her, and Zach says in the diary room the plan is to get Caleb to agree to this move of nominating her. “I smell blood in the water.” Caleb leaves the room, and Zach asks Amber what is going on with them. “Why did you guys break up?” Ha, Zach is the best!

“Next up - stir Beastmode’s pot”, brags Zach. He races downstairs to tell Caleb about how Amber is complaining about him. It’s so funny to watch. This may be my favorite segment of the year, especially since he believes putting up Amber is to scare her, not to evict her. Beastmode has to teach his Queen a lesson, after all! “It’s too easy”, exclaims Zach.

Caleb heads upstairs to the HOH to talk to Frankie, and says that they should convince Hayden to pull down Jocasta and put up Amber. “She’s floating to the other side”, he says. Caleb somehow believes he “runs this house”, and Frankie plays up to everything he’s saying. Caleb is convinced that this will make her come running to him. “I am the only person that can save you in this game.” Frankie is loving every second of this, and can’t decide which of these two is more clueless.

Oh yeah, we still have the Team America (Fuck Yeah!) silliness, so we get another Team America meeting. The plan is to get Zach to go nuts at the veto ceremony after Amber is nomination, and Donny has no problem with Amber being nominated. In fact, he believes it to be a swell plan, and is happy to have a “front row seat”.

Now’s the moment of truth. Hayden takes a look at the memory wall, and calls the house in. Jocasta says that she should come down because she’s “trustworthy” and “loyal”, and that Hayden is not a target. Victoria claims that she has “proven” that she’s a true competitor (wtf?). Hayden then pulls down Victoria.

Frankie, who is sitting next to Amber, then gets up and announces that his new nominee is Amber. She’s relatively calm about it, and then Hayden announces that the veto meeting is adjourned.

Before the box can be slammed shut, though, Zach jumps up because he has something to say. Here we go! “Amber, you’re sitting right where you belong, and you’re on your way out the door. I couldn’t be happier. Beastmode Cowboy has already saved you twice in this game. He risked $500,000on you, more than all of your boyfriends have spent on you combined. When you were both have-nots, not everyone gave you their blankets. Beastmode Cowboy gave you his blankets. And to top it all off, he ate a pickle. A frickin’ pickle. The food he hates more than anything in the world. He nearly threw up all over the kitchen just so you would go on a date with him. Do you have anything to say for yourself?”

Amber is silent. “No?”, replies Zach. “Huh, that’s funny, because that’s what you have been saying to him this entire summer. It’s just really pissing me off, and I had to say something.”

Unfortunately, the mission failed although it was great fun to watch. Amber says that Zach didn’t have to pull this prank, and Jocasta thinks this scene was good for her. “Thanks, Zach. You did me a solid.”

So that’s it! What did you think of tonight’s episode? Was the Zach Attack great entertainment? Could Caleb be any dumber? Is Nicole’s voice the worst in Big Brother history? Tell us what you think!

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!
