Big Brother 16 — So Much For Pow Pow

by Lisa Marie Bowman on July 11, 2014

Hi y’all:

Well, I’m on my lunch break so I figured I’d give everyone a quick update about what’s going on in the house and give everyone a new post:

Wasn’t last night’s live show great?  For once, it seemed like anyone cold have gone home.  But, of course, in the end, only one person could be evicted and that person was Paola.  Jocasta and Donny voted to evict Zach but everyone else was on board with getting rid of Paola and, by a vote of 10-2, Poala was voted out.  At least Paola got a few snarky comments in before she was sent packing.  My favorite: “Devin has five personalities and they all suck!”  Paola may have been one of the worst players in BB history but that comment will probably go down as a classic.

Anyway, the HoH competition was won by Nicole and Derrick!  I don’t know about you but I was so worried when it looked like Caleb and Frankie might win.  I was like, “Oh my God, it’s the first episode all over again!”  There’s nothing worse than when the same two players dominate every competition.  (Add to that, I’m a little bit over Frankie.  He was fun at first but now, he just seems kinda needy.)  But, in the end, Nicole and Derrick pulled it out and won the two HoH spots.

So, the nominations are happening right as I type and I assume that the Battle of the Block will follow shortly.

Right now, it appears that the nominations will go like this:

Derrick — Jocasta and Caleb

Nicole –Victoria and Amber

(Edit: Apparently, Nicole changed her mind on nominating Victoria at the last minute and nominated Donny and Amber instead. — LMB)

Nicole, for her part, has been saying how much she hates being HoH.  Derrick, meanwhile, has been showing himself to be a far stronger player than anyone originally realized.  He’s pretty much talked Nicole into nominating Victoria and Amber and he has also come up with a plan to backdoor Devin.

Caleb, apparently, volunteered to be nominated.  He also says that he’s planning on throwing the Battle of the Block.  According to Caleb, he’s doing this to “save” Amber.  (GAG!)  However, this will also allow Caleb to play in the POV, where the plan is to backdoor Devin.

And if Devin wins the POV?

Well, then the house can either get rid of a strong player (Caleb) or they can get rid of a player that nobody seems to have built up any strong connection with (Jocasta).

So, it all works out, right?

Well, maybe…..it’s kind of an unwritten rule of Big Brother that the more complicated your scheme is, the more likely it’ll dramatically fall apart.

However, as a viewer, I’m a little bit worried that every Battle of the Block is going to be thrown.  Don’t get me wrong — I like the whole multiple HoH thing but I worry that players throwing Battle of the Block is going to eventually become as predictable as players using the POV to backdoor their real target.

But that’s a topic for a future post.  Right now, we can just be happy that the plan right now seems to be to send Devin packing.

Lisa Marie

Thanks Lisa Marie! Great update. Either way, these nominations are not bad. I was elated that Derrick won. He is a smart player and can’t wait to see how his HOH goes. I hope he continues as HOH and gets Devin out. I would not care if Caleb went home either, but kinda doubt that will happen this time. Nichol seems to be scared to death and was shaking all over to prove it! LOL

Thanks for the updates, I have been on the edge of my seat all day!! So glad that the same dominate class didn’t win again, and so hoping Devin walks out that door Thursday night! Cant stand any of his personalities!!!! (Finally getting into this season, they just all seem like a paranoid bunch of middle school kids)

Macy…REPEAT FROM LAST PAGE

Macy1231231 – Good point, we have to keep our fingers crossed that Devin’s name is not pulled. Caleb and Jocosta will probably win BOTB, unless Caleb decides to throw the comp to save Amber. Should be interesting.

MM good talking with you too. Do you think Caleb will throw the BOTB challenge to save Amber?

I would feel alright with Caleb staying on the block, if for no other reason than have a strong person in case Devin gets picked for veto. You would then have Derrick and Caleb against Devin. Loved last night show and totally agree Lisa Marie that the 5 personalities line nailed Devin in less than 10 words. Actually still a crap shoot getting Devin out but putting Jocasta and Caleb on the block together was fantastic – win either way.

The dual HOH makes it very difficult to single out one player for eviction, because it adds so many variables and paths for the intended victim to escape. If the plan falls apart, I wouldn’t mind seeing Jacosta get booted since she’s another player that brings nothing but a vote to the game.

Hi Keith, I think I heard them say the back up plan will be to evict Jocosta, if Devin is chosen for the POV challenge and wins. I agree, she hasn’t brought anything to the game.

Lisa Marie, what can I say that has not already been said. Great write up, clear, concise and to the point, as my friend JT would say I appesch.

betty, I think romeo aka caleb will throw comp to save Juliet aka amber.
ok let me see if I have this correct

caleb throws the challenge, means amber and Victoria win, which means Nicole is out and derrick is hoh for the week. perfect, but like they say the best laid plans of mice and men……………….

devin is smiling, apologizing, making nice but too little too late, I do not think even Donny will give him a pity vote, as it should be.

To be honest till today Donny was my choice for the win, butttttttttttt have to say I am now leaning in derricks camp, he is so far a super player, listens more then he talks, but most important he thinks before he talks and acts. must be from his law enforcement training. He has said few times I have a past which will become clear after this is over. I guess more then likely his undercover days are over since he is now known from sea to shining sea,

hope to have some late breaking news as it happens, stay tuned

ciao

21 Cathy 07.11.14 at 1:38 pm

Not quite understanding what the big deal is so early in the game about Devin. He is not by all means that bad a guy. His biggest problem is that he talks to much. He is trying to do too much too soon and that may be his downfall. But gosh I’m not surprised that he wants to be the one that tells everyone what to do. Remember what’s his name and what’s her name last season lol? To me this bunch is a breathe of fresh air compared to them lol. Nobody has stood out to me as a complete loser or douche yet. Devin kinda was the 1st couple of weeks, but I respect that he apologized to Donny, but should not have called the house meeting hahaha now that was a pretty dumb move. Donny is a pretty good guy but not sure he’s gonna make it to the end. Erick is playing a smart game but after all he is trained for this kinda stuff. In like caleb, he just wants someone to snuggle with lol. Amber another I’m not sure of. Brittany and Victoria I’m see as similar but also very different if that makes since; time will tell. Frankie is very entertaining; he is a real thinker too. I think everyone better beware him. Im not seeing much out of Hayden, its got to get better with him. Nicole is just too much like Jordan only smarter. Zach oh Zach what can. I say about zach? He has a big mouth too and you can tell he wants to take the light off himself and put it all on devin; which I guess is big brother! Jocosta I hope she does well, if for no other reason b/c she prays frequently and seems very comfortable in who she is. Time will tell, I may be wrong but I sure hope not. Ooh the barista chick, she is a solid player right there, she has all her little ducks in a roll. Oh and pretty boy with good hair, Nah not impressed with his game. Whoever I’m forgetting I guess just have impressed me enough to matter.

I think Caleb will be working hard to win so he can take Amber off the block.

M&M…good info. Are they supposed to get everyone to beleive it or just spread the rumor?? What is the goal exactly?? I’m confused. I think there are a few to many twists this year. Hard to keep track!!! lol

I guess Donnie is kind of miffed. He thought Derrick and frankie and he should have had a team meeting before noms wer picked. Derrick saying he didn’t know Nic was going to nominate him. (not sure that is true)

Cody and Nic saying that Donny can’t keep his mouth shut. Nic saying she thought she could trust him and can’t now. I don’t know exactly what they are refferring to. Anyone?

Nic said she and Vic are now friends and she just coudn’t put her on the blcok when it came time. She hopes America doesn’t ahte her for putting up Donny but she can’t trust him anymore.

Hayden trying to make Nic jealous bu telling her that Vic is a good cuddle. Nic just went on talking game. lol I love how she is SO not interested in the guys, only in playing hard. It’s making them crazy!!lol

Superb write up LM as always, you are the best! Thank you.

Betty and Star, couldn’t agree more with you. I hope the BD thing works and Devin gets gone. I have to say I think the boy is delusional because he truly believes that he is right and everyone else doesn’t know anything about the game. He went too hard too fast but he believes he’s right and that’s the rub. His apologies just don’t ring true to me. Somehow even his tears seem false- again IMHO.

kim…, I did love Cher and I agree about Cindi Lauper. She’s amazing and such a dynamo of energy on stage. Yes, it was me who went. Star is the one who figured out what your jmj meant.

Star, I went to the “farewell tour” too and I think it was 11 years ago but of course, I was in Anaheim, Ca. :)

MM, your grandma is so right but I would have trouble being lectured to by Devin for very long. I would have to excuse myself to go throw up. :roll:

Derrick is showing a lot of psychological smarts in this game. He’s able to get someone to think it was their idea when Derrick planted the seed. Smart one he is and I can see him taking it all. We’ll see because we all know that best laid plans, etc. etc. etc. L8r

Thank you for all the updates everyone.

I’m surprised Donny was put up. He’s very likable but not playing much. Maybe it doesn’t matter if the plan is for Caleb to throw the competition. I’m still not a fan of the double HOH.

I’m confused about exactly what crime they are accusing Donnie of. I’m going back and forth through feeds and the only thing for sure seems he told Jocasta he thought they were putting her up. No one in power told him it seems it was his opinion and he thought she had a right to know.
Donnie feels left out by Derrick because in their Team America meeting it seemed they agreed the T.A. 3 was the most important alliance. I agree with Donnie’s feelings. Also it seems that Derrick is upstairs with Nicole talking trash about Donnie.
Does anyone know more or heard more? None of this feels right to me.

Thank you for the updates, everyone ! Mama Margie, I like Derrick, he’s a smart cookie, but after reading your update about how he’s acting, it doesn’t surprise me, after all, he IS a cop. I’ve known many cops who have that cocky, “know-it-all” mentality. Don’t understand why Derrick would want to throw Donny under the bus since Donny & Frankie are part of TA. Is Derrick playing for HIS game or for America’s Team ??? Can hardly wait until Sunday night ! Enjoy your weekend, everyone ! Hugs to all !! :)

so having said this, I wonder if Donny is out, will TA continue with derrick and Frankie, will $$$ be the same $5000 per challenge each,

hmmm wondering, so strange derrick is like possessed, I think there is some kind of evil spirit in that hoh room, who ever is in there has a huge personality change, I am waiting for derricks head to spin and he spews green bile, or they find him floating up close to the ceiling

Seems good that Derrick won. Let’s see if he follows through with bd’ing Devin. Guaranteed it will come up that Devin should be kept because no one likes him and he would be good to sit beside in the final. Wow it was painful to watch Devin’s face as he got trashed a few times. I thought I would like it but it was so obvious that it cut him to the core and feel a bit sorry for him.

54 kimjmj 07.12.14 at 12:43 am

So I stepped away from the live feeds for a couple hours worried that my current fav Derrick is going to talk his game to death and came back to BBAD to find him chilling out and the frantic pace gone from his conversations… phew!! Number one rule of BB, once the plan is in motion let the next step play out before you freak out over steps 4, 5 and 6.

Devin came up to chat with Derrick, Zach, and Frankie in the HOH. He was using the code”I really miss my daughter” to tell the guys he understands he’s leaving this week and has no hard feelings. He told them he is now actually relaxed for the first time in the game and wants to enjoy the rest of the experience. Now I can see the likeable side of him. If only he hadn’t played the game so hard so fast and not tried to control everything and everyone… I’m not convinced he really will go this week.. there is a strong sentiment in the house that Caleb may be the better target if he doesn’t win POV, so only time will tell.

As for the Donny situation, from what I can gather, this morning he was trying to get their “others” in the house to ban together so the”good” people make it to the end. This is always something that fascinates me. In general everyone thinks of themselves and the people around them as “the good people”. Truth be told, we are all good and bad, depending on the situation and circumstance… it brings me back to the nerd herd S6. They were so into only they were the good guys they failed to see their actions towards the rest of the house turned them into bad guys.

Gotta like Nicole a lot more now too. Her skittish demeanor puts me off some, but the girl stood up to Derrick while deciding noms and flat out told Devin he was her target. She’s not buying anything anyone is selling her, including Christine. She does seem to have a genuine bond with Hayden, and I can see this as our next BB Sweetheart Couple. :-)

Ok, enough rambling. TTFN!!

Thanks for all the updates. I am on graves for the next several nights so will be able to keep up in here.

I found BBAD during the first season of Canada BB and it is included in my cable package for the US versions, although somewhat amusing it is highly time consuming. Better to read here and just do a quick scan of BBAD ;-)

I do have one concern. Last season one of the regular posters signed up for live feeds and got seriously addicted;-) Unfortunately I cant remember his name, but he would post the most hilarious moment by moment blow by blows. .. it was a memorable season lol. He would often post tales of his kitty on the keyboard, and many of his posts were beseeching us to send help. .. now. I am thinking his name was Kevin. By the end of the season he wasnt posting at all, I think the Live Feeds consumed him fully. Anyone know whatever happened to this poor man, hungry cat. .. and I think there may have been a dying fish or two as well!

BCMarie….I think you might be talking about Kevin11. He is still around but not posting as much. He has been on from time to time but unfortunately, his cat, Saki became very ill and passed in December last year. :( He did get another cat, King Louie. Kevin was busy with soccer, but he will probably be on a little more now. He did mention he was liking this season, if I’m not mistaken.

Shout out to Kevin….HEY!!

Hi everyone

Thanks LM .
@Kebin11 come back

Ok About Devin , I heard that he doesn’t see his baby girl and doesn’t have custody
He had a DUI and addiction issue that got him kicked out of baseball
Sounds about right doesn’t it?

Derrick thanks for going Devin on us ! Let tge show begin

These people all have many personalities it seems

And Caleb saving Amber , can’t wait to see he’s face when Julie interviews him or when tries to marry/stock her when she comes out

Sylvie, I heard Devin had not seen his baby for THREE months before going on the show. This sure doesn’t sound like a loving father, although maybe his Ex is preventing this, due to lack of child support. When he went up to the HOH room last night I almost gagged. He was so mushy and told everyone he knew he was going home and had come to terms with it…NOT!!! I think he had real tears, but not about his daughter, the tears came because he knew he might be going home. Frankly I was a bit surprised, as I thought he would excuse himself and go into the bathroom to splash more water on his eyes! If he is chosen for the POV and wins he will turn into the devil again and once more all hell will break out!

Thanks Shayne, I’m surprised anyone made it thru my late night rambling :-)

Frankie is totally zooming Derrick. Told him he works with a charity that builds schools in Africa and every $20k is another school. Yes, Frankie has been involved with Broadway 2Africa, but from what I found they have workshops and teach the arts, no building schools… Derrick, you gotta smell the fishieness in Frankies story, especially since he wants to keep it a secret.

TTFN!

Betty, today’s soccer is for third place and tomorrow the finals. For some strange reason my hubby is now addicted to soccer. :D Kevin 11 is definitely watching soccer. As BCMarie said, he is hilarious. Writing is his game. We do have some real talent on this blog who make us laugh and/or cry depending on the craziness in the house.

I’m sorry to hear that Derrick went off the Devin cliff but it seems he’s recovered. At least I hope so. I also hope he isn’t turning on Donny. It will be fun to see if they can get three people to repeat the Zach being related to Amanda false statement. Five grand a piece is some nice change.

@Betty I also heard that Devin rarely sees the baby girl, he probably feels bad because now he has to pay back child support since he’s a TV “personality”

About his personality disorder he may need more or less of whatever he’s already on

Sorry I hit enter by accident, Donny’s name was also pulled. I don’t know the third name pulled, does anyone else?

Sylvie, Devin definitely needs a change in his medication. Maybe then he would not have FIVE personalities, as Paola told us. I still laugh when I think of her going off on Devin!

80 Star 07.12.14 at 4:26 pm

@kimjmj..the player you didn’t know was Christine. Altho, Jacosta has the flu bigtime and won’t be able to play!!! Caleb said they all have a 1 in 5 chance of winning now so maybe they aren’t replacingher. That seems odd.

I heard the comp was supposed to start at 2:00 BBT, but as usual, they are running late. But at 2:11, Big Brother said over the intercom….*You are the reason we can’t have nice things!! * lol Everyone is confused!! Altho he was probably referring to the kitchen and their Pigness…. ;)

I couldn’t believe the frog costume Nicole had to wear!! lol She looks adorable but it had got to be uncomfortable!!!
\
Apparently last night, Hayden spearheaded a new group called the Outsiders. (one of my favorite books and movies) Not sure who all is in it but pretty much everyone who was NOT in the Bomb Squad. He wants to start picking them off. And he says he doesn’t want to win HOH until it is just regular again. He says he knows the order the BS wants to pick peopleoff. they are Devin, Brit, Jo, Amber Caleb , Vic, Nic and then hayden. So who is doing the picking off??? Derrick and???? We shall see. Could be just late nite ramblings. WAY too may BIG alliances this year! hard to keep track of and makes it hard to get anything done. IMO.

Still no fishies. So..we wait.lol

About the live show and PowPow’s comment on Devin’s multi-faceted personality I remember that the cameras went to him after her remark and my instant thought was “hell, that is one handsome devil” :)

@Betty…..They call pretty much everyone into the DR before a comp, don’t they??? They couldn’t give Devin an advantage unless it wasn’t a physical comp. I don’t like knowing that they interfere, but it IS called Big Brother, so i guess it’s to be expected.

Gotta run. Going out to dinner soon. Will check back later. Fingers crossed ANYONE but Devin wins POV!!!!!lol

well it is confirmed Donny won pov, and he just told jocsta he is going to use on her and let them put someone else up.
and praise be jocasta is talking in a normal voice, her eyes r open, she is lol with Donny, it truly is a miracle
guess the pov being over was all the medicine she needed, now fellow bloggers please do not think ill of me, but come on guys, even stevie wonder could see how she was over dramatizing it,
back to live feeds, the hgs r playing some crazy game with british accents so I zeroed in on jocasta and Donny
maybe jocasta will be up for an emmy

I don’t think Caleb is that bad, but I sure wish he would get over Amber. I would like to see Zach go next. He can’t sit still and still talks too much. Derrick is talking a lot too, but I think he is trying to smooth over all the rumors about the bomb squad. Hope he will now keep a lid on things, including his mouth! :lol:

Oh bummer, BB told them Have Nots HAVE to sleep in the HN room. Oh well, that kind jesture of Derricks will serve him well. :-)

Christine wsa going to volunteer for HN but she has some awful food allergies. Basically anything you can think of (lactose, gluten, soy, nuts, etc) she can’t eat. So Hayden graciously volunteered to take her turn since she can’t eat any of the special treat stuff.

Ok, really, TTFN.. unless someone else wants to do the dishes for me? ;-)
