IMHO (In Morty's Humble Opinion) Catty girls and egomaniacal guys-- Are you
surprised? I've spent some time reading the comments on our FaceBook and
Twitter accounts, and some fans were hoping for more “normal” people in the
BB16 cast. I wonder if they mean normal guys like Mike Lubinski. “Mike
Lubinski” you ask, “who is he?” Mike is a father and house painter from Michigan that was
on Big Brother 5. Why don't you remember him? Two reasons. First, he was the
first one evicted because everyone in the house thought he knew too much;
second, he was one of a handful of normal people cast on Big Brother, and
normal isn't memorable.|
This week, one common opinion seems to be that fans wish it was Caleb on the
block instead of Amber, but I must ask “Why?” I like Amber, she is very
pretty and has a nice even disposition, she may even be normal. If Caleb was
evicted this week, Amber would continue being pleasant and normal. Whereas
with Amber leaving, Ba-Boom! Caleb will be out for blood, building a shrine
to her like GinaMarie did for Nick, and it will be an exciting week on the
Isn't it great when we can all come together and hate the same people...?
This season, I don't think we'll all unite against a common foe. Firstly,
there's no one that really inspires hate, just dislike, and with every new
day a different player is on the fan's hit list.
Zach certainly has his share of detractors; I was one of them as soon as I
saw his interview video, before he even entered the house. Since then, I’ve
changed my opinion. Although I’m still not a fan, Zach has made some remarks
that have given me cause to reconsider. First, he told Cody that he (Zach)
shouldn’t win the $500,000 because he’s a douche-bag, and with $500,000 he’d
be a bigger douche-bag. He’s also admitted to Frankie that he’s an asshole,
and yet when Frankie’s grandfather died, Zach cried, and not for show, in
private. He cried again when Derrick’s grandfather died. So we know he’s not
heartless, and has a self-esteem problem.
One HG that I think has been overly criticized is Derrick. Derrick has told
a few lies and manipulated a couple people, so? On FaceBook, fans are
equating this to him being a dishonest cop, when I think he’s just a
perceptive fan who has studied the game, and is playing it. Derrick appears
to like being in control, and if you can gain control of the insanity in the BB
house, and not have everyone see that you’re in control, then you are a
great player. Dan Gheesling tried to maintain control of the house and is
considered a super-player; why do we have this double standard for Derrick,
just because he’s a cop?
Frankie is starting to get his share of haters, he’s being called Andy 2.0.
I disagree; I find Frankie to have a little more personality than Andy, but
Andy won $500,000, I bet that’s Frankie’s goal too. Frankie’s genial
persona has allowed him to play all sides of the house, but I think it’s
wearing thin and some HGs are starting to get wise to him.
Donnie has been a fan favorite since the premiere. I was worried that Donnie
wasn’t playing a good social game because he hadn’t bonded with anyone. He
was a floater. Whether by strategy, or by accident, it seems to be working
for him. He’s managed to distance himself from the big players that now all
have targets on their backs, while quietly making friends and proving his
honesty. Then, he also is on Team America. The “team” doesn’t appear to have
any kind of loyalty to each other, or as the Marines say, “esprit de corps,”
however with $5,000 a week in prize money at stake, I think they’ll protect
That’s all for now, it’s just my opinion, and we all have them. You can
express your opinions in the TVFanForums.

is huge but I can't have it on my conscience if I jeopardize someone's game,
so it's done. We're not doing it." Donny: "When we came to do this game, the
$5,000 game didn't exist. We came to win Big Brother or we wouldn't
have come." Derrick: "I know."
Donny tells Derrick that they think of it as money, but they would have to
accuse people and those people take their game very serious.

on CBS & Global TV at 9:00PM
Remember, you can watch Big Brother as it airs
Caleb calls himself a hopeless romantic but this romance is just plain
hopeless. Welcome to Big Brother!
Previously, on Big Brother, Amber and Caleb believed the Bomb Squad was
still intact but the Detonators were secretly working without them.
After Amber told Christine she wanted the girls to work together,
Christine ratted her out so the Detonators set their sights on back
dooring Amber. After Hayden rode off with the veto, he agreed to the
back door plan. The Detonators knew they had to get Beastmode Cowboy on
board so when Amber shared her feelings on Caleb, Zach threw out the
bait and Caleb took it hook, line and sinker. At the veto meeting, the
Detonators plan came together and Zach went off again. Tonight, who will
be evicted from the BB house - Jocasta or Amber? And two new HoHs will
be crowned! Plus Team America's next mission plays out live tonight. All
this right now on Big Brother!
Good evening I'm Julie Chen, welcome to Big Brother. It's day 42 inside
the BB house and the Detonators continue to dominate this game. All week
they've been playing the Cowboy like a puppet but tonight it's you
pulling the strings. Last night you voted and tonight Team America will
get their next secret mission. So what mission did you choose and will
Team America pull it off? It all plays out live tonight But first, Caleb
thinks he is running the game. Caleb put his love in harms way but his
ego may have sealed her fate.
We pick up after the veto meeting. Amber tells us of course she is the
replacement nominee and of course Zach had something to say. Zach
doesn't get under her skin, she's not going to cry at his words. Jocasta
tells us she has been on the block before but this is the first time
being on the block going into an eviction. Everyone is telling her she
has their vote but in this house, you never know. In the bathroom area,
Christine welcomes Amber to the being yelled at by Zach club. Later,
Caleb is alone in the Have-Not room. Caleb tells us he has done so much
for her, and he doesn't want her to go home but he wants to see how she
In the backyard, Nicole, Christine and Frankie are tanning. Frankie
apologizes to Amber, who blames it on Zach. Frankie says it was all him.
Amber wants to know why he didn't go up. Christine and Nicole leave the
two to talk. Frankie tells us he has to maintain he doesn't really know
what's going on, even though he is HoH. Amber and Caleb in the beehive,
Amber confronts Caleb about it being his idea to go on the block (which
Frankie told her). Caleb wants to read her a passage from the Bible,
it's about trust. Amber says she's done nothing to be untrustworthy.
Caleb says she's been spending time with Christine and Nicole and that
makes him wonder. She gets angry and leaves.
Caleb tells us he kind of feels like he made a mistake. The last thing
he wants to see is her packing and leaving. Caleb brings Amber back into
the beehive. He will sit there as a man and look her in the face and
talk. He wanted to keep his promise to her and protect her in the house.
He says it was his suggestion but everyone else went along with it.
Amber tells us she feels betrayed. She feels she did everything wrong by
helping others and not herself.
Up in the HoH room, Caleb visits Frankie. Caleb
says he feels like such a sleaze-ball and made a stupid decision. Frankie
tells us Caleb feels responsible for Amber being on the block so he will
allow him to take all the blame.
Frankie says he only went along with putting Amber up because Caleb
wanted it. Caleb, in tears, says it was wrong. Frankie tells us he
hasn't seen a Cowboy cry this much since Brokeback Mountain. He has a
special place in his heart though, so he is legitimately trying to
Christine, Zach, Derrick, Amber and Cody in HoH later. Zach asks Amber
if she likes Caleb. Amber starts crying. They ask what's wrong, she
leaves saying she'll be back in a bit.
Amber is alone in the beehive
when Christine joins her. Amber is so tired of Zach. She feels so
pressured because she's never liked Caleb like that, it irks her that
he's hurting her game so bad. "Who does that? It's driving me crazy,
it's like he wants to be some kind of hero." Christine says that's
exactly what it is. Christine tells us she has wanted to find a reason
to keep Amber, and now she has landed a perfect present in her lap - she
wants to nominate Zach. Now Christine can talk to the boys, try to save
her so she'll put Zach up.
Christine takes Frankie and Derrick in the beehive and suggests her
plan. She also tells them that Caleb is Amber's target. Frankie tells us
that's the perfect nail in Amber's coffin; he has to tell Caleb.
In the HoH room,
Frankie, Derrick, Cody, Zach and Caleb discuss the vote. Caleb wants to
keep Amber. Zach asks if he believes what Amber tells him, Caleb says
yes. Frankie tells him that Amber would nominate him because he's ruined
her game. Caleb says he's done nothing but help her game. Caleb leaves
in anger, while everyone tries to stop him. Cody says the house is about
to get blown up. Caleb goes down to the living room , telling us he
hopes he can keep it together. He feels like he has one of the biggest
knives in his back and daggers in his heart. It's very clear that he has
been blinded since day one.
Time to go to the living room and talk to
the HGs. Julie offers her condolences to Derrick about his loss. Julie
turns to Zach, why did he have so much to say? Zach says he can never
keep his mouth shut. He hates everyone in the room. It is what it is.
Julie thinks it is an interesting strategy. Nicole, being at the
receiving end of Zach's outbursts, what was going through her mind?
Nicole says she was so shocked, but she took it as a compliment cause
she likes Froot Loops and dingus means she's adorably quirky.
bunny slippers? Scarves on your head? Is this the way you dress at home?"
(From a viewer) Yes, he says. They're Amber's slippers, they fit his
feet. He's been a Have-Not for two solid weeks, he's cold so the scarves
come out. He's metro too, Frankie's rubbing off on him.
"Team America, it's time for your next mission. America wants you to
vote against the majority of the house in this week's eviction and then
publicly accuse two HGs of being the ones responsible during the
eviction fallout." This is going to be toughest mission yet and could
put the long term games in jeopardy, Derrick tells us before heading out
to tell Donny and Frankie. Donny tells us calling someone out like the
mission is asking is a trait he doesn't have in or outside the house.
These young people would know.
In the HoH, Donny wants to decline the mission. Frankie thinks Caleb and
Zach are plausible to have done it. Frankie tells us it won't be a tough
mission to pull off, it's going to be tough to survive. Donny says he
didn't travel across the country to have his game messed up.
Final pleas. Amber: First I want to say, send love to my beautiful
family and fabulous friends. Jocasta you're a beautiful woman and I feel
bad sitting next to you. Being in this house, I love coming here and
being insane and crazy. I love you guys, and I feel I've played an
honest and loyal game. I'm that kind of player and I would hope you'll
keep me in the house. I think it would benefit your game if I stay in
the house. I'm blessed and I enjoy every moment and I hope you vote for
me to stay.
Jocasta: (thanks God, her family and friends). HGs, I'm so trustworthy
loyal to you guys. I would love to stay here and fight it out. I pray
for you guys every night, whether I stay or go I will still pray for
you. I pray for you too, Julie. God bless.
Time for the votes!
Hayden voted for: Amber
Victoria voted for: Amber
Donny voted for: Amber (declined TA's mission)
Derrick voted for: Amber (declined TA's mission)
Zach voted for: Amber
Caleb voted for: Amber
Christine voted for: Amber
Cody voted for: Amber
Nicole voted for: Amber
By a vote of 9-0, Amber is evicted from the BB house.
Amber walks into the studio to loud cheering. Back in the house, Caleb
comments that this is what happens when you bite the hand that feeds
you. Amber feels the most betrayed by Caleb but she thinks it was
honestly personal. She's sorry she wasn't interested in him and she's
not going to pretend to be to win money. She wasn't surprised not to get
any votes. She doesn't know why she was targeted, they thought she was a
flip flopper? She didn't have any other alliance in the house.
Julie wants to know why the women didn't band together, Amber thinks
they're saving their butts. Why choose not to blow up anyone's game? She
wanted to walk out with her loyalty and trustworthiness intact. Did
Caleb's one sided romance affect her game? It did, Amber says, without
hesitation. She wasn't here for a showmance. He has her bunny slippers
still - can she get those back?
Amber says Cody is like a brother to her. He's like her best friend in
the house. He is actually who she feels betrayed in the house. She would
not do anything differently.
Goodbye messages: Zach is extremely happy
she's gone. He knew she was coming after him, and he only wishes he
could have said more to her at the veto. He would've loved to ether her
Christine loved being in the Bomb Squad but that was yesterday's
news. She's working with the Detonators and Caleb is their next target.
Donny says he related to her more than anyone else in the house, she's a
taste of home. He hates to see her go, she will be greatly missed.
knows she is a good person, he'll miss her but at the end of the day he
is still the king of the house (puts on a crown). Amber's reaction to
the Detonators? She's happy about it! They are playing the game well,
she's glad they're playing hard. Donny is running the house.
Amber is ready to see her family and enjoy her summer. And to be clear,
she is not going to be Caleb's date for the finale. She's single!
Julie: "Recently the HGs viewed videos of themselves from earlier in the summer.
Clues that will be essential to winning tonight's HoH competition. The
power is up for grabs! This game is called Getting Loopy and here is how
"Earlier you had a chance to watch videos of things that
happened earlier in the summer. I will read a series of statements based
on the videos you saw. For each question, you'll answer true or false.
Get it right, stay in the game. Wrong? You are eliminated. This will
continue until there are only two HoHs left."

Did you miss tonight's episode?
Here No matter where you live!
7:11PM BBT: Frankie and Nicole are in the Have-Not room. Nicole tells
him she is scared. He tells her if she stays HoH she can do whatever the
fuck she wants. He would appreciate it if she didn't nominate him. Nicole
and Donny head to the bee hive room.
Donny asks Nicole what she is feeling. Nicole says they can work together to
come up with a good plan. Donny says he can nominate people she can't and
she can nominate people he can't. They agree to bring Hayden into the fold
and just the three of them come up with a plan.
Donny and Nicole agree that Hayden is completely safe. They also agree to
say they don't know who each other are nominating. Nicole says she is mad at
people who keep throwing competitions so they don't get blood on her hands.
Donny tells her there are three people who have never been nominated, Cody,
Derrick, and Frankie. Donny says they don't know how it feels and they
aren't people they can nominate up front.
Donny says Christine may have to go up because his gut says Christine would
have nominated him if she won. He says Caleb would nominate him as well.
Donny says either way, he has had a bad day up until now. He says he gave up
his freaking summer to hang around with juveniles. He is looking forward to
7:20PM BBT: Donny and Nicole have joined the others back in the
kitchen. Donny "If there ever was a competition I thought I would lose it
would be memory." Jocasta has pulled her luggage out of the storage room.
She is teary eyed.
7:27PM BBT: Jocasta is crying in the fire bedroom. Derrick is trying
to comfort her. He tells her that she is going to win the next HoH and that
everything happens for a reason. Derrick "We only have each other now." She
is openly sobbing and resting her head on his lap. He just holds her.
Derrick "What is your ultimate goal in this game? To win? You are one step
closer." Jocasta is humiliated because she went out early. She turned her
answer board the wrong way.
7:31PM BBT: Nicole and Zach are in the
storage room. She tells him that she has a reason to put him up but she also
has to worry about winning BotB. She says it can't be all girls again this
time. Zach says he understands if she nominates him and there would be no
hard feelings. He deserves it.
7:33PM BBT: Zach says Donny and him are close and he probably won't
put him up. She would be smart if she did. Zach is resolved to be one of her
nominees. He fishes for her other target. Nicole "I will tell you when I am
more comfortable. I am not going to tell you and have it spit all around the
7:35PM BBT: Derrick has given Jocasta a pep talk and reminds her that
her boy just won HoH and her family is watching and supporting her. Zach
joins Caleb who has been sitting in the living room . Zach tells him that he
threw the competition. The tie breaker question involved how long
(something) took in seconds. Caleb thought it would be at least 25 minutes
and he says no way it took under 12 minutes.
7:38PM BBT: Zach and Caleb are doubting they will be nominated. Caleb
says they won't want to nominate a strong competitor. Nicole and Cody are in
the bathroom area. She says she had to play for it because she didn't feel
safe with Zach and Caleb still being in the competition. Nicole is stressing
because there only nine people to choose from and they have to nominate four
7:42PM BBT: Cody asks Nicole what she and Donny talked about in the
beehive. She tells him they just talked about how Donny has had a really bad
day. Zach asked her that same question when they were in the storage room.
She told him the same thing. Nicole tells Cody that she trusts Derrick but
she doesn't want to tell him that. She thinks Donny does too. Nicole "I live
for this game. I sit in the shadows and worry all the time. I don't want to
play like that." She is glad that no one can call her a weak player anymore.
7:46PM BBT: In the living room , Caleb is telling Derrick and Zach
that there is not any point in getting stressed right now. It all comes down
to the PoV. That's when you get stressed. Victoria walks past them. Caleb
"That girl looks in every mirror she walks by. Every single mirror. Nothing
is going to change. The picture is exactly the same."
7:49PM BBT: Frankie has joined Derrick, Caleb and Zach. They agree
that at least one, if not two of them will end up nominated. Frankie says he
has to go to the bathroom but wants to wait for the HoH. Nicole walks up and
sits down on the coach. Frankie goes and sits right up next to her,
practically on top of her, and asks her who she wants to sleep with. She
says he can sleep up there.
7:54PM BBT: Caleb thinks the next person walking out the door with
be the first member of the jury. He says if he is nominated he won't accept
being told that he isn't the target. He will treat it as if he is the
target. "I don't care if I go up. I'm a beast. The next time I win something
I will put up whoever it was that put me up."
Caleb says the worst case scenario happened. Some of their boys will be
going up because none of them won it. He says that people may have thought
Donny wasn't smart but he is. His board had math all over it. Caleb expects
that Donny will probably nominate Christine.
8:00PM BBT: Even though she is gone, Caleb is talking about Amber. He
says she will be glad to get home and see her family. She will watch the
rest of the season and hear him talk about how much he misses her. She won't
stay mad at him. Frankie and Zach are in the fire bedroom. Frankie thinks
Nicole will put up Victoria and Jocasta if she gets to pick first. She isn't
stupid. Frankie says as often as everyone has talked about nominating Donny,
him winning is like poetic justice.
8:08PM BBT: Derrick and Nicole are in the rock bedroom. Caleb walks
in. He says is he is going to be nominated then he just wants to know. She
says she isn't decided yet. He asks her what she said in the beehive to
Donny. He is the third person to ask her that. She gives him the same answer
she gave the other two. Donny just said he had a really bad day today.
Wouldn't tonight be a good time to try the live feeds?
8:12PM BBT: Derrick and Nicole are alone in the rock bedroom. She
says this BotB is awful. Derrick says there is no way Donny will put up
Jocasta, Everyone will expect her to. She says she really doesn't want to do
that. Derrick reminds her that she was the first person out of the
competition again. Nicole says she is tired of no one making any big moves.
She wants to be the one to fire up America. She thinks getting Frankie out
would be a big move. Derrick says if that comes to fruition, he would
support that...but not to tell Christine that or Frankie will know.
8:16PM BBT: Nicole and Derrick are still alone in the rock bedroom.
He tells her not to do game tonight but to take it easy and enjoy her
photos. She says she does want to talk to him later tonight though. He says
just call him up. He leaves and Hayden walks in. He says that she is even
more attractive to him today. More so than any other day. She tells him to
8:21PM BBT: Donny and Zach are in the beehive. Donny says you can't
nominate a strong player or you will lose the BotB. Donny mentions Christine
to him. He says Christine would nominate him and is weak.
8:27PM BBT: Nicole and Hayden are no longer talking about the game to
each other because Christine and Zach has joined them. Zach crawls into his
sleeping bag and covers up leaving only one eye peaking out. Christine sees
him and points it out. Nicole "Zach, if you won again would you put me up
again?" Zach "Absolutely, without a doubt." Zach says if she puts him up he
is out for blood. He is laughing the whole time. Nicole reminds him he put
her up just last week and blasted her in front of everyone. Zach screams out
to the entire house "Hey everybody, Nicole is putting me up." No longer
screaming he says "If you want to salvage anything between us, don't put me
up. Are you putting me up?" Nicole "I don't know." Zach "That's a yes."
Frankie walks by and says to Zach "Interesting strategy."
8:33PM BBT: Zach has Hayden, Nicole, Christine and Frankie laughing.
He keeps yelling at her like a mock fight. He tells her that if she
nominates him he is going to annoy this shit out her. Victoria walks in and
Zach say (pretending he doesn't see her) why don't you put up Victoria?
She's been up every week. Zach keeps pretending he is pissed at Nicole.
[Personally, I think he just wants to make sure he has a chance to play in
the BotB and veto. -Goldylucks]
8:38PM BBT: Donny and Derrick are in the beehive. Donny tells him
there are several people that might be going after him. Derrick says he will
keep his ears open and see if he can find anything out about that. Frankie
walks in to congratulate Donny. Team America says this is a great week to
make up for last week. Donny asks them to give out names of potential
targets. Instead of naming targets, Derrick says putting up Victoria or
Jocasta will help increase his chances of staying the HoH, especially
Victoria. Jocasta can't win a thing if it's hot outside. Donny says he has
no alliance with Jocasta. He would be glad to vote her out if someone
nominated her but it would be hard for him to nominate her. Derrick
recommends that to make a deal with Nicole. She can have Jocasta if she
allows him to have Victoria. They also discuss both of them nominating one
weak player and one strong player making for an epic BotB.
8:48PM BBT: Caleb and Frankie are in the fire bedroom. Frankie says
he could kill him for letting Donny win that HoH. Cody and Donny are in the
beehive. Donny asks him what he is thinking. Cody says Caleb is a target for
most of the house. Donny "Is he? No one in the house shares much with me?"
9:00PM BBT: Caleb in kitchen telling Christine that he was trying to
play his game and look out for Amber. He hopes that Amber can watch
everything and see that he was always looking out for her and that they will
have something when he gets out.
Donny and Cody talking in the beehive. He tells Cody that he and Nicole have
decided not to tell each other any names until they've gotten in the HoH
room. Donny says Cody had a lot more people to choose from when he was HoH.
We keep getting sent to Jeff's highlights sporadically.
Donny and Cody are talking about Frankie and how they both are trusting him
less. Donny also says he would like to trust Christine but sees Frankie
drawing her in and feels he can't.
Cody is downplaying his part in all the alliances and his relationship with
Frankie because he can see that Donny doesn't trust him completely. Cody
tells Donny that he thinks Zach is easily manipulated. He also tells Donny
that he can use this HoH to set himself up for getting involved in the nitty
gritty. He tells him that even if it's a double eviction he has Hayden and
him on his side.
9:12PM BBT: Donny tells Cody that he started the day feeling sad
about being away from family, playing the game with all these young people.
Cody says that if he ever feels that way he needs to come get him and they
can talk. He felt the same way when he got in the house. He says that the
letter helps because you get to keep the letter and you can read it if you
ever start feeling down. Donny is talking about shaving his beard...maybe
right before next week's live show!!
9:19PM BBT: Meanwhile, in the kitchen Caleb, Frankie, Victoria,
Jocasta, and Christine are all talking about who will talk to Donny next.
Frankie says it's different because he goes to bed so early. Donny comes out
of the beehive and Christine asks to talk to him. Donny tells her that
Nicole is her friend and he thinks that they can work together well. There
are four people they are talking about. He asks her to name names since he's
not. She says Victoria, Zach, Jocasta, and struggles with the last. She
first says Cody to make it even. Donny asks why she didn't say Caleb. She
says that it's only because he would make them all miserable. He asks if he
would be a target for her, and she shakes her head YES. She says that she
doesn't even think that he's that strong. Donny says that if he's put with
the right person he would be even weaker. Donny says that he wouldn't mind
putting Caleb up because he has put him up before.
9:23PM BBT: Donny says that he could put up Caleb and Victoria and
not get blood on his hands. Christine says that they HATE each other. He
asks her if she thinks Nicole could put up Zach and Jocasta. She says that
would be beautiful. Donny's worry is if Nicole gets the first pick and takes
Zach and Victoria because that would put him in a horrible spot.
Meanwhile, Cody, Frankie, and Victoria are talking in the Fire bedroom. Cody
and Frankie are cuddling in one of the beds. Frankie is saying that America
is probably upset that the Caleb / Amber "love affair" is over.
9:32PM BBT: Donny says he doesn't understand why people talk bad
about him. He goes to bed early, does things for other people. He hadn't won
HoH yet. He hasn't been at the bottom, he's always been above 50%. He
doesn't know if this was a good one to win, but he hopes people will
Meanwhile, Frankie is saying that Amber was always saying that she didn't
want to use her sob story in the game but just by saying that she was kind
of using it. That said, they do think that whatever her story was, it was
actually a bad story. Frankie also says that she is stunning and should be
booking jobs right away.
9:36PM BBT: Donny tells Christine that he hasn't told anyone anything
someone else has said and he hopes no one will tell anyone anything he has
said. He feels that she would be a good person to work with in the game.
She's a smart person, and he doesn't feel like there are a lot of smart
people in the game, and she knows the game. They decide to table that talk.
Their talk ends and Caleb grabs Donny to talk in the bathroom area. Caleb
tells Donny he taught him everything he knows.
9:41PM BBT: We get FotH and when we return Donny and Caleb are
talking about competitions. Caleb tells him that he was never the target any
of the three times he was nominated. Donny says he has a hard time believing
that Paola was the target the first time, especially when Devin came and
apologized to him for "targeting" him. Caleb says that Devin was one person.
Donny says that Devin wasn't the HoH, Caleb was. Caleb says that if he has
to be nominated because of that, so be it. He will play his heart out. Donny
says that he was the first person to nominate him. Caleb tells him that he
is going after every person in the house. He thinks there are people that
don't deserve to be there. He doesn't want another Andy holding the check,
or a Victoria. He did put him up because of Devin, but "at the end of the
day" he is the HoH, so he can do what he wants to do. [I actually lost of
the "at the end of the days."]
|Caleb tells Donny he taught him everything he
9:46PM BBT: Donny says
that there are three people who have nominated him and one of them is safe
because it was Nicole. He's trying to get the least amount of blood on his
hands. Caleb says he put the first guy and first girl who fell on the block,
but he wasn't going after him. Cody was the other person who nominated him.
He tells Donny that if he doesn't nominate him, Caleb won't nominate him. He
also tells him that if he does get nominated by someone else and he wins the
PoV, he will use it on him. Donny tells him that the other thing to remember
is that whoever he and Nicole put up may not be the target.
10:13PM BBT: Frankie tells Cody that they just need to be
calm and everyone else will paint targets on their own backs. Caleb walks in
and tells them that Donny is probably putting him on the block. Caleb tells
them that he told Donny that if he nominates the strong players and they win
then he is dethroned. Cody says that Donny doesn't say much. Caleb says that
Donny doesn't talk much game, he just says how he feels. He says that "at
the end of the day" he'd much rather play and have the opportunity to play
and save himself twice than be backdoored. "At the end of the day" he just
doesn't want to be nominated with Victoria. Donny's meeting with Jocasta
ends and Nicole tells him not to go to bed too early because she wants to be
sure they have a chance to chat.
9:53PM BBT: Caleb says that he's not afraid to play the game, Donny
says he's not either. Donny says that's because they are competitors. Caleb
tells Donny that since the first time he was up he has seen him as someone
who deserves to be here. He's a competitor. He says there's a few people
here who think they are at summer camp. We are here to play a game and do
what you need to do to stay. Caleb tells Donny that if he's put up he would
DIE to be put up with Victoria. He says that he would want to be put up with
a gamer. [Let me put this in terms Donny would appreciate: Caleb, if brains
were lard, you wouldn't grease a very big pan. -Morty]
9:58PM BBT: Derrick and Nicole are talking. He says you know that
Nicole isn't going to put you up. Frankie and Cody talking. Cody tells
Frankie that he assured Donny that the house was behind him. He told Donny
not to be nervous about Christine. He tells Frankie that he may put up Caleb
and Victoria. We get FotH. When we return Donny and Jocasta are going into
10:05PM BBT: Jocasta tells Donny that everything Amber ever told
Nicole and Christine they went and told Caleb, Derrick, and Frankie. She
feels like Nicole will put her up because she knows she isn't going to put
up Hayden, Christine, Victoria, or Frankie. Donny says that Zach called her
a Froot-Loop. Frankie and Cody are talking about the Brigade and how they
were never on the block until the end. Frankie says that they have to make
sure not to keep information from one another because it creates dissension.
Jocasta and Donny both agree that Frankie is a power player in the game.
10:20PM BBT: Donny is talking to Victoria and he tells her that if he
hadn't won he would be one of the people going up on the block. Nicole is
talking to Jocasta in the beehive. Nicole tells her that she doesn't know
who Donny is putting up yet. They agree that they thought it was going to be
one HoH this week. Nicole says that Jocasta will not be her target and she
doesn't want it to be unfair. Right now she doesn't know what Donny is doing
and she just wishes she could enjoy being HoH. She hates this part of it.
Donny and Victoria have both been put up three times, both have been put up
by Cody. He says whoever is put up gets the BotB and PoV to save themselves.
If he's dethroned he also has a vote to help save her if she's put up.
10:25PM BBT: Donny asks Victoria how much she would hate him if she
went on the block with Caleb. He tells her it would be better than being
paired with a weak player. He also tells her that he doesn't believe she'll
be voted out. She says it's just that there are some people who haven't gone
up at all, so it's just frustrating. He agrees, but at least she would be up
with a fighter so she would have a fighting chance. He reiterates that he
hasn't even talked with Nicole yet so nothing is set.
10:31PM BBT: Donny and Nicole called to the DR. HoH room reveal is
probably coming soon. [Donny is up past his bedtime!] Victoria is in beehive
talking to Derrick. She's upset about possibly going on the block. Derrick
tells her to stay calm for him this week.
10:36PM BBT: Donny and Nicole: "Who wants to see our HoH Room?"
Everyone is seriously excited to see Donny's pictures. They are blown away
by pictures of his girlfriend and of him with no beard. Caleb is holding
pictures of Nicole up to the camera.
10:40PM BBT: Donny got a Gilligan hat, pop tarts and Journey: Greatest Hits
. He puts on some sunglasses "to hide his tears." He asks to read his letter
to himself first and immediately starts to cry when he begins reading it.
Donny's letter is from his girlfriend Christine and it's beautiful. Here it
Squirrel, Zippy, Brown Eyes, Poopy, My Love. Well, if you are
reading this you won HOH. Congratulations. You earned it and
deserve it. Everyone is doing well and they say, “Hey.” Been
talking to Penny, Ma, and Tommy a lot. Your house, yard, and
chicken truck are all in good shape. Bear and Josie miss you.
They can’t wait for belly rubs (woof, woof). I’m still going to
the gym a couple days each week and to the pool on weekends but
neither one is fun without you. I get bored and lonely. Watching
some fireworks with the dogs this week but it’s not the same
without you, either (wink).
Been going to Albemarle on weekends to look at houses and to
visit Ma, Penny, and Tommy. Been getting some good home cooked
meals, too. Narrowing down the list of houses for when you get
back. I miss you so much. I miss your kisses, holding your hand,
your touch, your hugs, and your massages with those wonderful
hands. I miss snuggling with you and lying next to you. I miss
the way you smell. Since you’ve been gone I have realized that
there is an emptiness in my life and a void in my heart without
you here. You complete me and make me whole. You mean the world
to me and I don’t ever want to be without you or away from you
like this again.
You’re doing a great job there. Keep it up. We are all very
proud of you. Stay strong and positive. Sending heart hugs,
prayers, and lots of love your way. God be with you. I love you
so much. Thank you for loving me.
Love always, your biggest fan,
10:45PM BBT: Nicole's letter is from Mariah, her "soulmate".
|Nicole “Young Chipmunk”
I want to start out by saying I am so proud of you. As for what’s been going
on in my life, still living the dream as a waitress. You know how much I
love that, NOT! Also, I recently got a boyfriend. Oh my god, I’m totally
kidding and you probably didn’t buy that for a second but I felt like I had
to throw in something exciting. I miss you so much. This is by far the
longest we have gone without talking since we have met and it’s a struggle.
But like I said, I’m seriously so proud and lucky to have you as my best
friend. Even though I miss you I hope it’s a couple of months before I hear
from you. Keep having fun, kicking butt, and making friends. Just don’t make
any friends that you like better than me.
Love you so much,
Mariah “Young Turtle”
11:05PM BBT: Everyone loves Donny’s stuff and congratulates him.
Christine and Jocasta enjoy Nicole’s pictures. Frankie tells Donny he is
going to sleep great for like 14 hours with the room of his own.
11:15PM BBT: Zach and Hayden ask about Nicole’s friend and we learn
she lives three hours away and they go to music shows all the time. Frankie
thought that Donny was about to propose while reading his letter because he
was crying so much.
Downstairs in the living room , Caleb is 90% sure he is going up. Zach
doesn’t think he is. Caleb said he told Donny if he doesn’t put him up, then
Caleb won’t put him up.
11:25PM BBT: Derrick says that as long as
Nicole and Donny put up one Bomb Squad and one other person then they are
golden. They just have to send the other one home. Cody enters and the boys
figure out sleeping arrangements. The boys do not know if Donny and Nicole
will agree about who to put up so one of them might get stuck putting up two
of the big guys.
11:35PM BBT: Hayden, Nicole, and Donny are talking in HoH now. Hayden
says Frankie is running the show on the other side of the house. Hayden says
that Caleb is so easily manipulated. Hayden does a scenario where Jocasta
and Zach are up against Caleb and Victoria. Hayden says if Caleb loses then
he goes home over Victoria unless veto is used then if Frankie goes up it
will be tough to keep Frankie. Donny says he doesn’t feel comfortable back
dooring Frankie. Donny says that if Nicole is sole HoH she can do that plan.
Donny is worried about not having the votes.
11:55PM BBT: Donny says that he told Christine he won't put her up if
he gives she give him one week of safety. They move onto have not picking and Hayden
says he will volunteer to be one if it comes down to it. Donny says that he
probably has another appointment or two then he can head to bed, at midnight
of course. Victoria comes up and Nicole tells her she is not putting her up.
If Donny puts her up she is not the target.
12:05AM BBT: Nicole and
Victoria are listening to her CD. Victoria calls Caleb rude because she
wanted to listen to her CD but he kept bugging her to figure out if he was
going up. She wants to listen to her CD this time because she didn't get to
last time. She leaves and heads to hang out with the living room group.
12:15AM BBT: Fish with no sound for a few minutes, then we come back,
the whole group sans Caleb (he is listening to music), is talking about
Amanda from last year. They say that they need to turn the heat up in the
house because everyone hooked up last year. Hayden says he kissed Nicole
once, but it was a small peck with no tongue.
12:25AM BBT: Frankie is alone in the fire room reading a tiny Bible.
We get fish with no sound again. He gets up to make some cereal. The living
room group is talking about SNL and Chris Farley, they get in trouble
for quoting movies.
Up in the the HoH room, Caleb is still dancing along to Nicole's CD. Zach
asks if Nicole would hook Caleb up with her friend, Mariah, after the show.
Nicole makes a face and says if she sees him on this show and that's what
she wants, the she guesses she would.
