Well, I promised daily updates so here is today’s daily update: THERE IS NOTHING HAPPENING IN THE HOUSE!
Well, that’s not quite true. There are things happening. Zach and Frankie were cuddling earlier. More and more people are apparently becoming convinced that Zach is related to Amanda and Zach, for his part, has decided to play along with the lie.
To be honest, my opinion of Zach changes on a daily basis. I couldn’t stand him when I first saw him. I incorrectly predicted that he would be the first person to be voted out of the house. I thought he talked too much and that he was trying too hard to be this season’s villain.
And then he was nominated for eviction and he stood up to Devin and he went out there and he campaigned and he gave a pretty good pre-vote speech, I thought. I actually found myself liking Zach. If nothing else, he was at least entertaining to watch. But then I would turn on the LFs and I would be reminded of why Zach got on my nerves in the first place.
There’s a real neediness to Zach. It’s now pretty obvious that he’s essentially a very insecure guy. All of his talk about not needing anyone is actually part of a wall that he puts up to try to keep people from realizing just how insecure he really is. That neediness makes him both a good ally and a potential liability. Frankie has obviously figured that out and is using that to his advantage. When Frankie finally does openly turn on Zach, it’s probably not going to be pretty.
But that probably won’t be for another few weeks or so.
Until then, where is the drama?
Caleb is still obsessed with Amber, even though she told him — once again — that she’s not romantically interested in him. That was probably a surprise to Caleb, seeing as how he had offered to “sacrifice” himself for her. However, Caleb still hasn’t really accepted it. You can tell by listening to Caleb that, in his mind, he and Amber are already married and living in Kentucky.
And Caleb’s obsession certainly is creepy but it hasn’t quite gotten dramatic yet. I’m sure that it will eventually. At some point, either Amber or Caleb will be targeted eviction and it’ll be interesting to see how they react to it. How will Caleb react if Amber votes to evict him? You know that she’ll do it but I have my doubts whether Caleb would ever vote to evict Amber.
But until then, where is the drama?
Devin is apparently campaigning to stay, even though he said that he wasn’t going to. Earlier today, he told Caleb that the Diary Room told him that he had to campaign and that’s the only reason why he was doing it. That didn’t seem to bother Caleb that much, probably because he knows that the entire house is pretty determined to send Devin home.
Add to that, Devin may be campaigning (and he deserves some credit for not giving up, even in the face of the longest odds) but that doesn’t mean that Devin is any good at presenting his case. He’s still the same old Devin — talking too much, cutting people off when they try to make a point, and thinking that grin of his will magically get him out of any trouble.
So, yes, Devin is trying but it’s not very dramatic.
On Thursday, the house will vote to evict either Devin or Caleb and then, there will be an HoH competition. Will the two new HoHs work together like all the previous HoHs have? Will the nominees actually compete at Battle of the Block or will it be another case of one team throwing the contest?
Or will it be another week of consensus?
The good thing about Big Brother is that you know that the drama will eventually arrive,
I just hope it gets here quickly.
