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.
