Big Brother Season 16, Episode 17 Recap

Welcome to what could be an extremely fun eviction episode. Why am I not my usual glum self? It’s simple. The Beastmode Douchebag is bound to be extremely entertaining. Without spoiling what is going to happen, he’s still completely clueless as to what is going to happen, even though his comrades have informed him of their plans. He’s going to explode! Or at the very least, he’s destined to say something stupid, or wear something ridiculous. There was even a promise that he’d interrupt Julie with a special commentary directed at Amber, although he was sadly told by production that this won’t happen.

Let’s not waste any time. We left off last night with Amber’s replacement of Victoria as a nominee, along with a hilarious rant from Zach. It’s the moment after Zach’s speech, and Amber refuses to talk to Frankie as she walks away. “You planned that. You all planned that.” She says in the diary room that she’s not going to let Zach get “under my skin”. She runs into Christine while walking into the bathroom, and she says “welcome to the club of Zach yelling at you”.

The camera switches back to the living room, and Hayden whispers to Jocasta that she won’t be going home this week. Victoria also tells her that she has nothing to worry about as tears begin to fall, but “in the house you never know”.

Caleb is now seen going into the have-not room to lay down, and he explains how the Amber nomination is just to “scare her. It’s to say ‘hey, you’re not always safe in this game’”. He continues to claim that he’s done “so much for this one person, and at the end of the day (ugh) we don’t want you to go home but we’re going to see how you react.”

Amber now walks outside, where Frankie, Christine, and Nicole are laying out in the sun. He apologizes to Amber, and she says she’s mad at Zach. “Why couldn’t he go up?” Christine and Nicole then ges up to leave, and she asks if she was put up for “personal reasons”. Frankie replies that it was because of what Caleb said about her. In the diary room, Frankie claims that he must act like he really doesn’t know, and tells her that she needs to ask Caleb. “You know how passionate Caleb can be.”

She walks back into the house, and finds Caleb reading the Bible. “Do you have something to say”, she asks. She tells him she’s heard that going on the block was his doing, and he admits to it. She wants to know why, and he reads from the Bible. “It’s so perfect.” Amber has no interest, but he says it’s about trust. He then complains that she’s been hanging out with Nicole, Victoria, “and all the other people instead of us.”

Amber can’t believe this. “You act like I’m aligned with someone else besides you guys. All of this that I’m hearing is like one big slap in teh face.” She then storms out of the room.

We now see Stalker Caleb staring at Amber through the patio door. He says he believes he may have made a mistake. Derrick then walks in and almost plows into the non-moving goof. Amber then walks in, and he asks if they can talk “without you walking off”.

They head back into the room, and he apologizes. “The one person I wanted to make a promise to and keep it in the house is you”. “Well, you just broke it”, she replies. He admits that he brought it up, and “they all said it was a good idea”. Meaning who, she replies. “The whole alliance”, says the dummy. She’s pissed with the news that they all knew. “I think I did everything wrong by helping others and not helping myself.” She tells Caleb she would never put him on the block.

Now Caleb heads up to the HOH, where Frankie is doign calisthenics. “Amber does nt deserve to be where she is, and I feel like such a sleazeball. It was a stupid decision.” Frankie replies that he thought it was a great idea when it was brought to him, and adds in the diary room that he’ll happily let Caleb take all the blame. “if she goes home, I’ll feel like the biggest asshole”, Frankie says with over-dramatic flair before hugging him. “I just wanted to do what was good for you when I saw you were wounded and hurt.” Of course, Frankie has to make a Brokeback Mountain joke about Caleb crying.

We move on to Amber being in the HOH with a number of people, and Zach asks her if she likes Caleb. She begins to tear up, and then walks out the door. She goes off into one of the rooms, and Christine comes in to comfort her. She explains how she feels pressure and she doesn’t like Caleb “like that..(and) if I’m here I have every right to put him up I want to”. Christine nods, but admits in the diary room that she’s loving this information. “We should keep her, and let her get Caleb out.”

She runs right to Zach, Derrick, and Frankie with this information. She wants to keep Amber, but Frankie thinks she’s “very dangerous”. He is still “elated”, though, as he can use this to “put the nail in Amber’s coffin”. His plan is to let Caleb know about this so that he’ll turn against her (again).

The boys, including Cody, now talk to Caleb in the HOH. Caleb wants to come to an agreement to keep Amber, and Zach asks if he believes everythng she says. Frankie then drops the bombshell that Caleb is now her target because “you’re ruining her game”. Uh oh! He doesn’t see that. “I’ve done nothing but help her game!” Zach is inspired by this turn of events, and eggs Caleb on (once again). Caleb gets up, and pushes Frankie aside when he attempts to keep him in the room. They all pretend to want him to stay, but celebrate as he storms out.

Dressed in a silly onesie and Amber’s bunny slippers, Caleb stomps down the stairs. He takes a seat in the living room, shocked by what he heard. “I feel like I got one of the biggest knives in my back,, and a dagger in my heart.” He takes off the slippers and tosses them aside as we head to commericals.

We return to Julie addressing the house. She offers condolences to Derrick for the loss of his grandfather, and then turns to Zach for his outbursts. He says “I can never keep my mouth shut. I want to reiterate the fact that all of you people in the room - I hate every one of you with every ounce of my body. It is what it is.”

Nicole is now asked about when Zach went off on her. She whines that she was shocked, “but I actually take it as a compliment because I like Fruit Loops and a dingus is adorably quirky”. Caleb is then asked a viewer question about the bunny slippers and the scarves. “Is this the way you dress at home?” He replies that it is. “They’re Amber’s slippers, and they fit good on my feet. I’ve been a have-not for two solid weeks (actually, no), and it’s cold so that’s where the scarves come out. Every once in awhile I like to be metro, you know. I”m a cowboy, but I throw some metro every once in awhile. I think Frankie is rubbing off on me.”

Julie then brings up the latest Team America mission that I forgot to report on last night. Well, I didn’t forget. I ignored it. This time, they have to vote against the majority of the house, and then blame two others. Derrick, who read the card, isn’t real happy with this mission because “it could put our long term games in jeopardy”.

Derrick goes to wake up Donny, but tells both Frankie and Donny separately. Derrick has a plan, but Donny’s not crazy about this plan. “It’s a character I don’t have inside the house, and I definitely don’t have it outside the house. These little young, smart people would know. I think it would blow my game.”  

Donny gives the news to the other two members that he doesn’t want to do it, but Frankie says they could claim that it was Zach that did it and everybody would believe it. Donny has no problems with the vote, but thinks the confronting part would be too out of character. “I chose to come play this game as Donny Thompson. I didn’t come across the country to have my game blown up.”

After commercials, it’s final plea time. Amber goes first, and thanks her family. She thinks Jocasta is a “wonderful woman”. She adds that she loves everybody, and “I think I’ve played a very, very honest and loyal game...I think it would benefit your game if I stayed in the house”.Notice Jocasta is not impressed!

Jocasta then thanks God and her family before saying that she is “so trustworthy”, and that she prays for all of them. “God bless you too, Julie”.

Voting now starts with Hayden, who votes to evict Amber, as does Victoria, Donny (sorry America, too risky), and Derrick before commercials. When we return, Zach votes against Amber, as does Caleb, Christine, Cody, and Nicole. Yes, it’s another boring unanimous vote.

Julie gives the house the news, and it’s pretty uneventful. She hugs a few people, accidnetally knocks into Zach, says she loves everybody, and heads out.

Wait, no fireworks from Caleb? He’s perfectly calm, and after Zach says she was “shocked” he replies that it’s what happens “when you bit the hand that feeds you”. Wait, what?

The interview begins with Julie asking who she feels most betrayed by with the unanimous vote. She says she doesn’t really know, as “I’ve played a very honest and loyal game”. She says it was probably Caleb, though, but “I’m sorry that I was not interested in him and I’m not going to pretend to be to win some money”.

Julie presses, asking if she’s shocked she didn’t get any votes. Amber replies that not really, and she thinks they all believe she was a flip-flopper even though she had no other alliance. She’d also like to see some of the girls start kicking out some of the guys. Julie follows it up about how the girls wouldn’t align with her to do that, but Amber had no answer to it. She also had no desire to blow up anybody’s game.

Caleb is then brought up (“oh my goodness”), and Amber agrees that it did “really affect my game...he has my bunny slippers still. Can I please get them back?” Flirting with Cody is also brought up, but Amber says he was like a brother to her. She now says that maybe his betrayal is what hurts her the most.

The goodbye messages are now shown, starting with Zach. “I’m extremely happy that you’re gone. I know you were coming after me, and this is better for my game. I don’t regret anything I said at the veto meeting. I just wish that I had more time to ether you even more.”

Christine then says that she loved being in the Bomb Squad with her, and outs the Detonators. “Honestly, Caleb’s next.” Donny then tells her that she was somebody “I relate to more than anybody else in the house. You’re a little taste of home in the way you talk and the way you carry yourself.”

Now here’s the moment we were waiting for. Caleb in his dumb onesie with the hood up telling her “at the end of the day, Amber Bamber, I’m still the king of this house, and the slipper just don’t fit you anymore. my Queen.” Holy shit, he actually put his stupid crown as he said that line! Before she heads out, Julie asks her if she’ll be Caleb’s date for the finale. “No!!!”

With Amber now gone, it’s time for the HOH competition. Julie explains that yesterday, the house got to watch videos from the house, and we’re shown footage of that happening. Yes, we get to watch videos of them watching videos. Scintillating, right? It’s even worse when Nicole’s screeching voice describes what they were seeing.

As expected, it’s an “A/B” competition called “Getting Loopy”. Ok, it’s actually “True/False”. Either way, it’s questions. Everybody gets the first question correct, but Jocasta is out in the second round. (Of course.) They’re all right on the third, fourth, and fifth questions, but Victoria, Derrick and Christine are out on the next one. They’re all correct for four more questions, but Cody is then eliminated. Again, they all get the next question correct, but they have now run out of time. Wait, what?

After commercials, Julie runs through the schedule once again. Why not ask a question here? That’s it? Come on. I have a feeling it was more of a factor of running out of questions rather than running out of time.

Well, I’m not going to spoil who actually wins it on the live feeds. You’ll have to wait for Ash’s recap!

I’m actually a bit underwhelmed tonight. Just like Devin three weeks ago, Caleb failed to live up to expectations. I wanted dramatics! I wanted screaming! Outside of his crown stunt, he was boring! What did you think?

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...

CLICK HERE TO DIRECTLY STREAM/DOWNLOAD!

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!
