Derrick is BB Champ
I probably won't get a chance to watch the show until this weekend, but I wanted to give a quick update on Big Brother. Cody won the final HOH, and he took Derrick. Derrick won, with only Jocasta and Donny voting for Cody. Donny won America's Favorite Player.

Final HOH Competition
I finally got around to watching Friday's episode of Big Brother. I wasn't keen on watching the episode because it was basically a recap episode of things that happened over the past year. Victoria says that she has been working with Derrick since the start of the game. Victoria doesn't seem to get that Cody and Derrick had a final two since the second day in the house. Victoria thinks that she will be sitting beside Derrick. Derrick tells her that they are brother and sister.

CBS then showed the past takes of the show. Derrick, Cody, and Victoria talked about the events before they were shown.

The last four minutes of the show dealt with the first part of the last HOH competition. It was an endurance with the house guests having to hang off a hang glider. Victoria was the first out, and Cody won. Of course, we just saw the beginning. But from the feeds, I know that Cody won with Derrick taking the second HOH competition. The question is whether Derrick will let Cody win the final HOH so Derrick doesn't have to choose between the two remaining.

Caleb Leaves
On last night's Big Brother show, we saw the conversation between Frankie, Caleb, Cody, and Derrick in the HOH room. Frankie said that evicting him will reconnect him with his millions of followers and the members of the jury. Frankie claims that he will single-handedly decide who wins the game in that situation. I'm not sure that's true, but that's Frankie all over. Cody tells Frankie that Frankie isn't Jesus, and Caleb says that if Frankie were in the final two, Caleb would smoke him. Derrick sits quietly, and finally says that he respects Frankie and the others as players.

Derrick talks to each house guest alone. Derrick has a final two with all three. Derrick tells Victoria that she has to go up, but he wants her to stay. Cody says that he doesn't want to go on the block. Derrick says he won't put up Cody. Then Derrick manages to talk Caleb into volunteering to go on the block. As Derrick tells them all, it doesn't matter who he puts up, but it does matter who wins POV, because that person is going to decide who is evicted.

Victoria has been doing a great job of pretending that she and Derrick are at odds when they are really working together. We see a segment on Caleb and his family. Caleb seems to think that he has some sort of movie deal in the offing. We see a ton of clips of Caleb going on and on about how wonderful he is.

The final veto competition pimped a new CBS TV show called Stalker. The competition is the same, match a house guest to a set of clues that describes the house guest. It's funny to see clips of Victoria, Cody, and Caleb saying that they know Derrick has their back. As we already know, Cody won the veto.

Cody evicted Caleb, and Caleb was hurt by the event. Caleb said that he was hurt by Derrick because he thought they had a close bond.

Wednesday, September 17, 2014 -- Afternoon

Final Four
My schedule has been extremely busy with my classes this term, and I finally got a chance to catch up on Big Brother. Yesterday's show started after the nomination ceremony with Frankie and Victoria on the block. Caleb tells Frankie that Caleb did not want to put Derrick up because he did not compete in the past two HOHs. Caleb also tells Frankie that Frankie might want to take Victoria off if Frankie won the POV. Frankie can't believe that the other three guys are still conspiring against him. Cody comes out as Caleb is talking to Frankie. Cody cannot believe that Caleb is telling Frankie this stuff. Frankie says that he has done nothing but prove his loyalty throughout the game.

Frankie uses pita to study Frankie is studying for the POV, saying he blew them out of the water last time, and he will do better this time. Cody says it won't happen again. Cody is wearing his glasses as he studies. Meanwhile Victoria is just studying the back of a bag of pita.

We see a segment on Team America because if a member of Team America wins, he gets an extra $50,000.

Cody was up first in the POV. We find out that this time, the first place sets the time to beat, and the others have to beat it to win. Cody whips through the competition and gets a tie of 2:21. Caleb is next, and screws up because he didn't turn off the lights for the first set, which eats up his time. Victoria is next. Victoria seems to be whizzing through them, until she got stuck on the fourth one, and lost. Then Frankie is up next, and he's stuck on the second face. He's out on the third face. Caleb and Cody start to celebrate. Derrick assumes that the time is Frankie's. Derrick is good, and he is on the last one, and just misses out on getting the POV. Derrick was sure that it was Frankie's time and that Derrick was going home.

Frankie tells Cody that he should use the POV because Derrick has never been on the block, and he should be. Frankie is frustrated. Frankie tries to convince Cody and Derrick that he is after Caleb.

It's eviction time. Victoria says she fought hard to get to that point, and the audience laughs. Frankie pimps Ariana Grande. Blah! Frankie says "go Grande, or go home." Bye!
Frankie is out. Frankie tells Victoria to please try to win something. Frankie runs out squealing and throwing confetti, telling Julie that he loves her. Frankie says that he and Cody had a bumpy road. Frankie feels that Cody has been playing him for a while. Frankie also tells Julie that he can't go into a competition and just not win things. Frankie says that he doesn't regret turning on the guys last week. Frankie also said that he knew Derrick would turn on him because of how Derrick turned on Donny.

Time for the HOH competition, and it's a before or after competition. Everyone got a point on the first and second question. Victoria and Cody got the third question. They all got the fourth question. Derrick and Cody got the next one. Cody leads with 5 points. Derrick and Cody got the next one. The last question only Derrick gets right. There is a tie breaker question. How many seconds long was the luxury competition from the official start until Hayden eliminated Nicole. Derrick said 420, Cody said 680, and it was 460. Derrick is the new HOH.

Remember to vote for your favorite house guest!

Monday, September 15, 2014 -- AFternoon

Bye Frankie!
Well, the BB feeds are on Jeff Loops (looping shows of Jeff showing us entertaining clips of the house guests). There is going to be an early eviction today, with Frankie being the one to go. Then there will be another HOH competition. Then later this week, another house guest will go leaving us with the final three. I didn't get a chance to watch yesterday's show because my DVR recorded 60 minutes. I'll have to see if I can catch up online or On Demand, but I just haven't had the interest.

Saturday, September 13, 2014 -- Evening

Frankie on the Block
Finally! Caleb put Frankie and Victoria on the block. When they played the POV yesterday, Cody won with a much improved time. So the guys are planning on voting out Frankie while not telling him to the very last minute. I think this is wonderful news because I really can't stand Frankie, and I think it will be a much needed blow to his ego to wind up as an inconsequential jury member!

Thursday, September 11, 2014 -- Afternoon

Rewind Episode
I watched the Rewind Episode, but there wasn't much point in it because everything was undone. We see how Derrick and Victoria hatched a plan for Victoria to convince Frankie that she is really pissed at Derrick for not voting for her. Victoria does an extremely good acting job, crying and saying that she has been betrayed by Derrick.

I watched specifically to see the jury house. The first bit of the jury house had Zach get a pink hat for his birthday. Hayden did not want to see Nicole come back, but she did. They could not wait to see who was evicted in the second eviction. Zach thinks that Derrick played a great game and wants to see him at the end. Everyone wants to see Christine in the house because no one wants her to win. Christine walks in, and everyone was ignoring her because they were just saying that they were hoping it was Christine. Everyone was ripping on and laughing at Christine. Hayden asked her if she had a thing for dinosaurs now since Cody had the dinosaur outfit. Then Donny asked if she had an attorney, hinting at a divorce. Christine also told them that she got the loudest boo, and Hayden thinks that it was because of her interactions with Cody. Everyone in the jury house agrees that Derrick is the person who was pulling the strings. Donny commented on how Frankie won so many competitions and had a good social game.

Cody gave his exit speech, and then Victoria gave hers. When it was time for the vote, Derrick could not get into the room, and Julie left them to stew over what would happen. Frankie was really freaking out. Julie tells them that they have to repeat all of the events of the past week. It will be the same HOH and same veto competition. Everyone, except Derrick, competes. Cody has to put the dinosaur costume back after the HOH competition.

From watching the feeds, I know that Caleb won the HOH. Nominations should be sometime today.

Sunday, September 7, 2014 -- Afternoon

Big Brother Pointless Show
The Sunday Big Brother show is basically pointless. Everything will be reset on Wednesday, so this is just stupid filler. If you are interested, you might want to watch to see Jeff ask Jordan to marry him. Of course, she said yes. The whole thing went down in the BB backyard with the remaining house guests. I might fast forward through to see it, but really tonight's show holds no interest for me.

Friday, September 5, 2014 -- Afternoon

So Frankie won the HOH last night, but it's pointless because as soon as the house guests had access to the gold button, Frankie insisted they push it because it would be some sort of prize. Obviously, Frankie hasn't watched Big Brother before. That means we already know that the nominations and veto will just be meaningless games because everything will be reset on Wednesday's show. Sigh! So we just have a pointless week ahead. The only thing that could save this is that the others might get pissed at something Frankie does, thinking that he'll be getting rid of someone, when it ain't gonna happen. Maybe that might put a bigger target on Frankie's back.

Thursday, September 4, 2014 -- Evening

Double Eviction Night
I really hope that the double eviction tonight spices things up. The Big Brother house guests have been extremely boring. There's supposed to be some sort of twist with a golden button. We'll have to see if it really is an exciting twist.

Julie Chen called this the most twist summer ever. Bah! Jeff and Jordan are going to be in the BB house on Sunday with a surprise. Bah! Probably that they are going to get married in the house.

Nicole complained about how Frankie and Caleb were arguing over eating chicken or fish for dinner. Nicole and Victoria talked about how Caleb was a wimp for not putting up Frankie. Caleb does tell Frankie that he was thinking of putting Frankie up. Caleb told Frankie that it was Cody's idea. Frankie tells Caleb that Frankie is Caleb's biggest ally. Then Frankie tells Derrick that he knows about the plan to put up Frankie. Derrick blamed it on Caleb. Frankie says he's not stupid, and he realizes that Caleb was serious.

Julie breaks the news about the double eviction, even though everyone knew about it. They've been talking about it on the feeds. Nicole gives a quick speech saying stop playing Big Baby and play Big Brother. Victoria had on a slutty pink dress, and really didn't say much. Time for the vote.
Nicole gave a very boring interview. She really didn't have anything new to say. Time for the HOH competition. They will see a video of an evicted house guest with a bleeped out word. They have to guess the bleeped out word. Donny was first. Was the bleeped out word massages? Everyone except Derrick said true, but it was kisses. So Derrick is HOH. Of course, afterwards, Frankie was claiming he KNEW it was kisses. Idiot!

Derrick met individually with everyone. Christine and Victoria are going up, but the plan is to get rid of Christine or Frankie. Veto competition is next. They have to navigate a ball through three crop circle mazes. It could be anyone's game, and it could take some time. Frankie made the second maze first, then Christine, Caleb, Victoria, Cody, and Derrick. Frankie made it to the third maze first. Frankie won with Caleb a close second.

Frankie just looks like an idiot with his spinning and smiling. Christine says that she did not expect Frankie to use the veto. Victoria said that she did try, and understands if he doesn't use it. Frankie does not use the veto. Christine whines and says she wants to be the last girl standing. Well, she won't be. Time for the vote.
Christine does not hug anyone, and just goes right out the door. Someone was booing really loud, and they heard it in the house. Julie asked Christine about not saying good bye to anyone. Christine says that she got involved in a boys' club. Julie asks since she is out in sixth place if she regrets her decision. Christine said that the guys knew they could beat Victoria, which is why they kept her. Christine understands being voted out. The boos had to affect her.
It seems that the golden button will be a rewind button. If it is used, then the nominees come off the block, and they start all over again. Since CBS has football on Thursdays, the BB show will be on Tuesdays and Wednesdays: both are class evenings for me. As the show ends, the house guests can see the golden button, but they don't know what it is.

Wednesday, September 3, 2014 -- Evening

Big Brother Update
I haven't been watching the Big Brother show very much lately because I have been busy, and because the show has basically been either boring or irritating, with Frankie being the Prima Donna. I'm watching tonight's show late, and it was pretty much the same old same old.

Derrick comforted Nicole and told her to win the POV. Derrick also said that if Nicole pulled herself off the block, he would like to see Christine go out the door. Christine is disgusted with the guys, and they see her as expendable. In the POV, Caleb picked house guest's choice, and he chose Cody. Nicole picked Derrick, and Christine picked Victoria. That meant that Frankie couldn't play. So Caleb, Derrick, and Cody talked about how Frankie is at the bottom of their list. In the POV competition, the house guest have to defuse bombs by watching a video, then to cut the appropriate wire to defuse the bomb. The first person out has to wear a dinosaur costume. That was Cody. Everyone gets the second round. The competition is really lame. Caleb was out second, then Victoria was out. Nicole and Derrick went out together, so Christine won.

Caleb is a bit upset that Frankie ran right up to Christine and started chirping in her ear. Caleb wants to know what Frankie was saying to Christine, and that's when Caleb starts talking about putting up Frankie because Frankie can beat them in competitions. Christine says that Frankie told her that he would have won that competition, because everything is about Frankie. Cody doesn't like Frankie is undermining him and Caleb. Cody just looks stupid in the dinosaur outfit.

Tons of talk about how Frankie is a threat and how they should put up Frankie. However, that doesn't happen. Derrick was panicked because Nicole said that Derrick was like Dan Gheesling. Christine comes off the block, and Victoria goes up in her place. As Nicole said, the Detonators have been voting as a group. However, all five can't win first place.

Sunday, August 31, 2014 -- EveningUpdate on Big Brother

I haven't had much time to update about Big Brother, but I did watch Caleb win the HOH on Thursday night. It was a close match between him and Christine, with Frankie and Nicole behind them. Derrick went for the little snow man and the $5000, and he got it. When Caleb finished, he twisted his knee, and at first thought he would need crutches, but he got better soon. Caleb nominated Christine and Nicole for eviction, and Christine won the POV on Saturday, so Caleb is probably going to put up Victoria in Christine's place, but he was talking about backdooring Frankie. Cody and Derrick aren't interested in that scenario, which is really stupid of them. They should get rid of Frankie as soon as they can.

There was also controversy because right before the POV competition, Frankie, Cody, Caleb, and Derrick were talking, and Frankie made some really offensive remarks about how Cody and Caleb should rape Victoria, taking her virginity. Frankie is a real punk, and I'm sure that he's going to say that America can't accept a gay man. No, Frankie, we can't accept people who ride on the coattails of their famous sister, while pretending they are great in their own right. And we can't stand folks who make offensive comments about women and men, and who make jokes about rape. No, Frankie, we just don't like you because you are an A-1 jerk!

Thursday, August 28, 2014 -- Late Evening

Quad cam of the endurance competition
It looks like Frankie is leading the HOH competition. It also looks as if everyone is going for the big snowman.

Thursday, August 28, 2014 -- Evening

Eviction NIght
I have been very busy this week, and I did not see last night's Big Brother. Basically, Cody won POV, and did not use it. Nicole and Donny stayed on the block, and Donny was the target.

Tonight started with Donny and Nicole talking about the vote. Cody thinks that sending Donny home is best for Cody. Nicole asks Derrick if she is good, and he says that she is. Derrick tells Nicole that everyone thinks Donny is dangerous. Then Nicole tries to Christine. That should send out warning bells to the guys. Christine says that for sure she is voting for Donny to stay. Frankie is watching Nicole cozying up to Christine. So now Frankie is worrying that getting rid of Nicole might be better for his game. ON the live feeds, Caleb and Frankie have been campaigning a bit for Donny. Frankie says that he wants to keep Donny in the house, but he has to get everyone on his team on Donny's side. As Derrick and Frankie talk, they say that Donny would have no choice to trust them. Frankie thinks that Donny's number one target is not Frankie or Derrick. Frankie says that it's down to Caleb. Frankie and Caleb talk, and they say that Nicole won't put up Christine. So the question becomes what will happen.

Frankie finds out that Julie will ask a question of one of them during the live show, if they became a have not, what food would you want. The Team America member would say apple pie. If she says yes, then they accomplished the mission. Caleb talks to Derrick about Nicole being a big threat. Derrick thinks that they have to do it as a group. Christine will not flip her vote. Then they showed last night's conversation with Caleb, Frankie, Cody, and Derrick. Caleb and Frankie try to get over that Nicole is a stronger threat than Donny. Derrick does not want to give his opinion because he's a wussy. So Julie says that we can vote on a punishment for the upcoming endurance to be 5000 hollars or having the person wear a stupid t-shirt.

Victoria is asked about her wisdom teeth. She said that Big Brother took good care of her. Frankie was asked the have not question, and the answer was an overwhelming no. Mission failed. HA! Then the house guests got to see a clip from their favorite family member. Ariana Grande was there for Frankie. Blah! Christine's husband is really ugly. Derrick's little girl is so cute! We got to find out what Christine's really ugly husband thought of her being all over Cody. Ugly Boy doesn't like the hand holding, but the other stuff seems okay, although he also said some boundaries have been crossed. Ugly Boy thinks he is as attractive as Cody. Not! Christine's mom and dad do not like how Christine is acting. Cody's did looks cross-eyed. Cody's sister thinks Cody should back off. Ugly Boy liked the zing from ZingBot. Ugly Boy is going to tell Christine that he is not happy with how she acted, and says he wants to play with Cody's hair and have Cody's arm around him the whole evening.

Time for the vote. Donny gives his usual spiel. Nicole says the same stuff. The vote:
Frankie said that he did not want to, but he had to evict Donny. They did not realize that they could vote against Cody. If Nicole wins, you will see who goes up.

Donny is crying because his feelings were hurt, and he has so many emotions in his heart. Donny said that no one in particular hurt his feelings, but he feels let down by Team America members. As Donny said, he does not blame them because it is an individual game. Donny said that with his age and look, he would not fit in. Donny said that he did not understand why everyone targeted him. Donny said that everyone loving him who left, it would not be good for the others in the house. Donny says that he has nothing in common with the people who stayed up late at night. Donny said he tried, but there was nothing in common with them. Christine called Donny one of the most intelligent and sneakiness of men. Caleb said Donny had suction cups. Frankie said that it wasn't for his personal interests to keep Donny. Derrick claimed he tried to keep Donny, but could not convince people. Then Julie told Donny that the Bold and the Beautiful want Donny to guest star on the show.

It's going to be an endurance competition tonight, and I'm hoping Nicole wins just to rub it into Cody that he should have gotten rid of her. Then she can put up Cody and Derrick and backdoor Frankie. The endurance is the usual race down the slippery runway with a cup. Then you put the liquid into a snowman, until a ball raises to the top. There's a small snowman next to the big one. The small snowman gives the winner $5000 AND 5000 hollas. The house guest will be bothered with call outs for the rest of his/her time in the house. Victoria sucks at the game, per usual. Christine is equally bad. In fact, Christine and Victoria look like they are standing in place on the slippery track. Nicole seems to be doing pretty good.

Next Thursday will be another double eviction night.

Monday, August 25, 2014 -- Afternoon

Jocasta plants a wet one on Nicole's lips
Quick Update
Classes started today, and I have classes on Wednesday night, so I'll probably be missing the Big Brother show, and just catching up with a very quick recap. As for yesterday's show, I'll only have time for a quick update today. In fact, for the next month, I will have way too many other things to do to pay much attention to anything!

In last night's show, we saw the recap of Nicole coming back into the house, and Hayden telling her to target Derrick and Cody, and Jocasta trying to plant a kiss on Nicole's lips. Christine is worried because she backstabbed her friend. Donny fills Nicole in on how Christine helped out the other team in the Battle of the Block, and Donny said that Victoria did not know she was in the game. Victoria went back to tell Derrick, Frankie, and Cody about Donny talking to NIcole. Derrick wants Donny out because Donny is onto Derrick's game. Derrick reminds Cody and Frankie that they have the numbers if they stick together.

The HOH competition was on where the house guests had to answer questions by punching in numbers about when something happened. The first question was the comic book hero competition and that was on day 44. The last person to put in the numbers is out. Nicole was the first out. Joey became Alex on day 12. Everyone got it on the first try except for Victoria. The day Brittany scored her soccer goals was on day 31. Cody was first in. Christine was out next. The day Paola fell off the swing was on day 6. Donny got it first. Caleb was out next. The next question was about the day Devin went on the block, which was day 25. Donny was in first. Derrick was out next. It's down to Donny and Cody. On what day did Amber win her third competition? Day 29. It was really close, and Cody just managed to win.

In the HOH room reveal, Donny said something about always thinking Cody wasn't too bright. The others were shocked, but Cody isn't that bright. Later, Nicole tries to sway Cody to keep her, and she promises him safety. Derrick and Cody talk about Nicole being more trustworthy than Christine. BB showed Donny talking to Cody in the HOH room. They made it seem that Donny got Cody up early in the morning, instead of showing that Cody was sleeping late in the day. Cody was just umming and not really listening to Donny. Cody is an idiot. Of course, Cody then puts up Nicole and Donny. They did show Derrick and Donny talking about Derrick wanting to save Donny. Derrick claims he likes Donny next to Cody in the the house.

Sunday, August 24, 2014 -- Evening

Update on Show Tomorrow
I'll have an update on tonight's Big Brother show when I can watch it and fast forward through the annoying parts. Cody won the POV, and he's not going to use it. Donny is going home on Thursday. Donny got the news that the Team America mission was one that the three members could make up and America would vote on whether it was a success. Donny tried to get it to be to save himself, but Frankie, said, "no, let's make it fun. Let's put on a Broadway show." Puke! I really hope that Frankie is out of there soon. but it will be Nicole next week.

Friday, August 22, 2014 -- Afternoon

Cody is HOH
Cody as HOH = Same Old, Same Old
The HOH competition was held around 1:00 AM ET. It seems that it was a tight contest, with Donny finishing a close second. Nicole was the first person out the competition, so that means it was pretty much left to the rest. Cody won HOH, and it's a no-brainer that Donny and Nicole will be going up later. If one of them should win POV, then the other will go home. If neither wins, it seems that Donny will be the next out. Donny tried to talk to Cody about strategy this morning, but Cody, Christine, Caleb, and Victoria are all incredibly stupid. And of course, Frankie and Derrick are playing them all.

Thursday, August 21, 2014 -- Evening

Returning Juror
Jocasta, Hayden, and Nicole were on stage for the returning juror competition. I really hate hearing Frankie's voice whenever he speaks. It seems that the competition will just be between the returning jurors, and that it might not be an endurance competition. This year has sucked because it has not had any endurance.

The show started with a phony baloney story about Zach having an attack still left in him, and that anything was possible. Yeah, right. Cody is not going to sit back and hope that people don't flip on him. There hasn't been anything like that on the feeds. Donny tries to get Christine to see the light about her place with the group, but it's pointless. Christine is an idiot with her head up Cody and Frankie's asses. Donny and Zach talk about the votes, and Donny promises Zach his vote. Zach tried to talk Caleb into voting for him, but Frankie turned on Zach and said that Zach can't be trusted. Zach says that he is going to try to campaign. Frankie tells Zach that he basically was put up because Zach refused to throw the competition and stay on the block.

The neighborhood watch is still going on. Frankie thinks it's so much fun. People were still targeting Zach. It seems that they managed to get the neighborhood watch for 24 hours, so Team America got the money off of Zach's back. Zach was trying to talk to Victoria, and they showed Victoria taking back the pink hat that she gave to Zach in the first week. They showed Victoria cutting the hat into pieces. These people are fricking idiotic, jerks. As Zach says, Victoria is kicking Zach on his way down. I'm not a fan of Victoria either. She's a lazy, stupid girl.

We then see the segment where Donny tried to talk to Christine about who she can trust. As Donny says, it might be a good time to get Christine to think of whom she should trust. Donny tried to tell her that Derrick, Cody, and Victoria are together. Donny told Christine that she is alone just like him and Zach. But Christine is really stupid. In the DR, Christine says that she does not want to finish fifth. As Donny said, if he were her, he would feel stupid if that happened. The thing that they did not show is that Christine went and told Cody everything. Zach talks to Frankie about what is best for Frankie. Frankie claimed that he did not want Zach going home. Yeah, right! Then why did you put him up. The edit looks like Zach has a chance, but he has none.

Julie showed the house guests some footage from the Battle of the Block competition. Julie asked Christine why the competition was so hard for her. Because she was cheating and working for the other team, and the three of them could not beat Donny. The house guests are then told that the double HOH is over. Cody's speech is boring. Zach does a rap and says he will see Julie shortly. Time for the vote.
Julie lets everyone know that Zach is evicted. Before she can say anything, Zach is throwing Froot Loops at people and heading to the door. Julie asked Zach about being prepared for leaving. Zach says that he was targeted because he could not keep his mouth shut. Zach says that he really hates Victoria because she gave him the hat and took it back. As Zach says, he hates Victoria for a laundry list of things. Zach says that he does not know what happened with Zankie. Zach did not see it coming. Zach is deluded and thinks that Frankie is a great person. Zach says he is not Zach Attack outside of the house, but he's really lovable outside of the house. Zach is very eloquent and funny. Zach calls the Zankie shomance a great friendship. Christine says that Zach is the biggest cry baby she ever met. Donny said that he enjoyed every minute of Zach attacking people. It was entertaining to watch. Frankie claims they will be friends outside. Victoria then showed Zach the shredded hat. Zach says he has no regrets. Zach says that he doesn't know who he will target if he is HOH, and that he might throw the competition. Julie then tells him that he can get back into the game.

They showed a jury house segment with Jocasta joined by Hayden. They think that Victoria may come in, but that it would be smart to be Derrick or Cody. And it was Nicole. Hayden called it bittersweet because he would like to still see her in the house. Nicole and Hayden would love to get back into the house. I think Jocasta is happy to not have competitions again.

All four are now on stage in basketball gear. Julie then tells everyone in the house to gather in the living room, and they are told that there will be a competition to have someone come back into the game. The four jurors go through the front door. Everyone then goes into the backyard.

The competition is come back fight. It will be seven rounds, and the house guests have to send disks down the chute that only has an open gate for a short period. The one with the most disks after seven rounds wins. After three rounds, only Nicole lost a disk. Round four and Zach and Hayden lost a disk. Jocasta was in the lead. Round six: and Nicole, Zach, and Jocasta tied. Last round: Nicole won because she was tied with Jocasta, but she had a disk closest to the center. Zach has to go to the jury house. That was an incredibly stupid game because Jocasta could have won. Idiotic game!

We don't know who the new HOH will be. Then Julie did the ALS Ice Bucket challenge.

Thursday, August 21, 2014 -- Afternoon

Donny thanks Jesus for winning the BOB
Zach's End
I waited until today to watch Big Brother so I could fast forward over annoying sections. I know that Frankie has been viscously arrogant in the house, and I'm sure that the CBS producers have been editing him to be "cute." So I don't want to puke too much.

On to the recap. The show started with Donny thanking Jesus. Donny is in awful pain because he has been nothing but nice to these people, and he knows Christine threw the competition. After all, he gave her a bone. Christine knows that Donny has to know she threw it. Also, as he said, he gave her a bone, and Donny has to 100 percent know that Christine threw it on purpose. Cody feels like they are the gang who can't shoot straight. Derrick says that this is the first week things haven't gone his way, and he does not feel good. Zach in the kitchen says that he wishes that they could have seen what happened in the house. Frankie says that he is nervous that he will have to do something he does not want to do. Puke! Jerk! He is the HOH, and the POV holder. It was all his choice. Derrick says that the trust would Donny could be gone if Donny realizes that Derrick put up Christine so Christine could throw the competition. Donny says that he is not the country bumpkin they all assume he is. Donny knows that Derrick has been blowing smoke up all of their asses, and that he is trying to blow it up Donny's ass now.

Derrick tells Frankie that Donny knows that Christine threw the competition, because he saw the look Donny was giving the camera. Frankie is nervous that Donny or Victoria would win POV and not use it. Frankie says that he would take down Caleb if Frankie won the POV, and then put up Victoria. Derrick wants Zach to go up, so he's going to play that route.

In the storage room, Donny tells Zach that Donny hopes that Zach plays and wins the POV. Donny says that he hasn't heard anything, but he is trying to befriend Zach. Donny hopes that he and Zach can play together. Donny says that the others act like Zach is part of the alliance, but Donny doesn't think he is. Zach goes to Frankie, and asks if Victoria wins POV and uses it on Cody. Zach says that if Victoria wins it, they are fucked. Frankie plays along. Zach says that if Derrick makes it to the final two, Derrick wins. Zach realizes that he, Zach, has blown things up, and he hopes that Frankie goes through with backdooring Victoria.

Then we had a segment on the Team America task to hide a clothing item from everyone. Derrick tells Donny and Frankie that he thinks it wil be fun. Derrick grabs Victoria's robe and hides it. Frankie blabs, then steals Caleb's cowboy boots. Donny took Cody's baseball hat.

They pick players for the veto competition. Frankie picks Victoria. Cody picks Donny. Donny says that if he wins the veto, he's going to take some color coded candy to see if he uses it or not. An obvious rip on the way he was supposedly selected to go on the block. Caleb picks Christine. Zach realizes that it is now out of his control. Caleb wants someone to use the veto, and he doesn't know if he trusts Donny or Victoria to use it. Caleb does not think Victoria will win. Donny tells Zach that he will try his best to win the POV to save Zach.

Kathy Griffin zings Zach Zingbot 3000 enters the house. Donny thought that Zingbot was nicer than he has been in the past. Caleb said that Zingbot kept on throwing out props. Then the doorbell rings and Kathy Griffin comes in. Frankie squeals like the idiot he is. Griffin is there for a zing-ervention. First is Caleb. He's told that he has something in common with Amber. Caleb thinks Amber is drop dead gorgeous, and Amber just wants Caleb to drop dead. Christine is told that glasses make people look smarter, but she disproves that. Griffin said that she would zing Victoria, but she's only supposed to zing people who are playing the game. Victoria did not get that one. What an idiot! Zach is told that he is not afraid to cry, wear pink, and cuddle with men. What was funny about that one was that Frankie thought the zing was going to be aimed at him.

They go into the backyard, and Kathy Griffin says that they have to reboot Zingbot by basically wiring four individual circuits so the light bulbs on the boards will light. The first person to get everything wired so the lights will light, wins. Frankie was first to get the board lit, and Donny was right behind him. Frankie claims he used to do stuff like this as a kid. Victoria is unable to do it, and Cody is not much better. As Derrick says the two aren't necessarily the brightest bulbs. Caleb, surprisingly, was doing pretty good too. It was down to Frankie and Caleb working on the fourth board. Frankie won. Frankie squealed. His voice really hurts my ears.

Zach is nervous because Frankie won the veto. Zingbot comes out of the box, and tells Frankie that he has a nice tan, which is surprising because of the amount of time he spends in his sister's shadow. Derrick is made fun of being ugly. Donny was told that he looked Duck Dynasty, but his game was suck dynasty. Cody got zinged by being told that he has an enemy in Christine's husband.

Frankie said he wanted to win POV, and he tells Caleb that he will use it on Caleb. Zach is trying to make friends with Frankie so he doesn't go up on the block. Frankie doesn't want to send Victoria home. He wants to turn on someone who has been bad for Frankie's game from the beginning: Zach.

Cody notices that his hat is missing. Everyone goes crazy over the saboteur. Zach said it was a big deal when his gator shirt when missing. CBS so edited the event to make it seem a lot nicer than it was. On the live feeds, they were all ready to lynch Zach. Christine blames Zach. Caleb brought up all the crap that Team America has blamed on Zach. Frankie then says the craziest thing. Frankie claims that Zach was a saboteur in getting Christine up on the block instead of him. We see Zach in the DR being very upset because people really believe that Zach is the person responsible. Frankie is such as ass, calling Zach a liar because Zach says it wasn't him. I really hate Frankie. I hate him more than anyone else who ever played Big Brother. Even more than Evel Dick.

Frankie claims that Zach is his best friend. Frankie uses the veto on Caleb. Then Frankie babbles out a rap, putting Zach up. I hope Zach comes right back in tonight.

Big Brother Recap
I am really having trouble getting into Big Brother. Most of the characters are boring, and I really hate Frankie. He is the most obnoxious, egotistical person, and I just can't stand the smug look on his face. Last night, the house guests noticed that things were missing, and Frankie turned it into a lynch mob against Zach. Meanwhile, the things were missing because Frankie and Team America took them and hid them.

The show started with Frankie talking about putting up alliance members because they are running out of people. Everyone wants Donny to go home, except for Derrick, who says in DR that he wants Victoria and Donny to stay. Donny feels disappointed and sad because he will probably go on the block again. He says he's outnumbered, but not out yet. Meanwhile Cody, Caleb, and Derrick talk about getting Zach to volunteer to go up. Caleb says that he is pissed because he is always volunteering to go up, but no one else is. Cody doesn't liks throwing competitions because everyone sucks at throwing things. Then Frankie prances in.

They tell Victoria that she is safe and has one more week in the BB house. She is excited. Derrick wants to stay HOH, and then says that he will never put up Frankie. Derrick and Frankie talk about Cody never being on the block, and about Derrick staying HOH so Frankie can compete in the upcoming endurance. I'm so glad that Frankie can't compete next week.

HOH room reveal. Frankie screams and acts like an ass. Every picture has Ariana Grande in it. Puke! Derrick got a letter from his wife. Frankie screams at his sister's letter. Puke!

Derrick talks to Donny about how not to be suspicious about Donny not being a target. Donny doesn't know if he should believe or trust Derrick.

We find out the Team America mission: hiding people's stuff, with organizing a neighborhood watch for 24 hours. Everyone except Donny and Victoria talk in the HOH. Christine and Cody don't want to go up. Zach and Caleb say that they have been up. They decide to pick people who go up by picking colored Skittles. Christine chooses purple and goes up with Donny. Cody's red gets picked. Then Caleb's green is picked. Zach did not get picked.

Then we have the obligatory Frankie saying Zach is gay clip. Then all the guys are watching Christine and Cody who are constantly touching. Everyone thinks that it's strange that they constantly flirt with and touch each other. Christine does come across like a slut, but maybe she has an open relationship with her husband.

Derrick, Caleb, and Cody talk about getting rid of Zach. Then Derrick and Frankie talk to Donny about Donny going up. Donny picks up that Derrick and Frankie are working together because they always says "we think this<" etc. Donny doesn't like that his fate is decided by color coded candy. They do the nominations, but everyone already knows it. Frankie makes his faces at the camera. Puke!

Derrick tells Cody that Donny is not buying that he is not a target. Derrick tells Cody to work hard to win.

Time for the Battle of the Block. Both teams enter a black box. They have to search for bones, and put the bones, one at a time, to the score board. Not all bones fit. They have to find five. Donny and Christine have the star board, and Cody and Caleb have the circle board. They have different boards because they are in the dark. They go into the box, Christine screams, and Frankie makes faces. Cody and Caleb stuck together. Donny was on his own. Christine wasn't doing much at first. Christine says that it is the best competition to throw. Donny did his best to find the bones. Christine handed off a bone to Caleb. She's an ass too. Fortunately, the piece that Christine gave him doesn't fit. HA! Donny finds his fourth bone, and realizes that Christine has found none. Meanwhile Christine finds another bone and gives it to Caleb, but it doesn't fit. Donny won it on his own, while Christine was trying to help the other team. Donny says he doesn't like to brag, but he feels that he won the Battle of the Block on his own.

I did a lot of fast forwarding through the show. I really can't stomach Frankie, Christine, Cody, and Caleb. What a bunch!

Donny, the competition beast
HA! I really have to laugh because sometimes karma bites people on the ass. When Derrick and Frankie discussed their HOH week, Frankie said that he wanted to put up people who would win the Battle of the Block so he would not be HOH this week and could compete in next week's endurance HOH. Both Derrick and Frankie wanted to target Donny and get him out this week, so Derrick put up Donny and Christine. He wanted to put up Zach, but Zach said that he had enough of that. Christine said that she would throw the competition. She started to act sick before the competition. Well, the feeds just came back post competition. Whatever the competition was, Christine didn't find any. But Donny won the Battle of the Block for the two of them! Woo-hoo! That means that Caleb and Cody are still on the block, and Frankie will remain HOH, unable to compete in the next HOH. Great! It will be interesting to see who will be sent to jury.

Thursday, August 14, 2014 -- Evening

Only Two Girls Left
The BB show this evening started with "just because you are HOH, doesn't mean you are safe." Tonight, we will get to see Caleb, Christine, and Frankie at the Dallas Cowboys practice. Christine and Cody go to the HOH room, and hug. They are constantly hugging and touching on the feeds, and the other house guests are commenting on how inappropriate it is. Later, Nicole asks to talk to Christine, and Nicole wanted to know what was going on. Christine claimed that she was forced into getting rid of Nicole because the guys told her that Nicole was after Christine. Christine is stupid because the guys won't keep her.

Donny and Zach talk in the Have Not room, and Donny talks about how he is left out of the conversations and others wanting to interact with him. Donny asks what he brought into the house to cause people to fear him. Zach says it's the beard. Nicole and Victoria talk about how Christine and Cody are all over each other. Victoria realizes that if Nicole leaves, the guys will just get rid of Victoria and Christine too.

Christine and Nicole talk how Donny is better to get out than Nicole. Christine claims it is getting through to Christine that Nicole would be an asset. They had to talk in the downstairs bedroom because Frankie took over the HOH bedroom because he claims that he earned it. Ass! Nicole then talks to Cody. Cody wants to send Donny home. Derrick says that nothing would shock him about Donny going for the others, but Derrick wants to keep Team America together.

We got to see Caleb, Christine, and Frankie went to the Dallas Cowboy training camp, which is in California. They got a tour of the locker room, and Caleb drooled over Tony Romo's locker. Then they all got to see Jerry Jones. Caleb felt like he was in a dream with Jerry Jones there. They also met Jason Witten, Tony Romo, and Dez Bryant. Christine said it was very surreal to be so close to them practicing. Caleb was so excited. Frankie feels reinvigorated. Puke!

Julie talks to the house guests in the living room. Caleb said his favorite to met was Jerry Jones. Caleb said it would have made his hair stand up. Victoria said the most surprising thing in the house was how emotional she got with all the lies in the house. Zach said he hates everyone in the house, but hates Frankie less, and they are buds. Frankie talks about winning the Battle of the Block. Blah!

It's time for the live vote. Nicole says she is blessed, loves them all, and wishes them the best of luck. Donny thanks everyone, and says that they have all been like little brothers and sisters to him. It's time for the live vote:
Nicole leaves the house, and Donny thanks everyone. Julie talks to Nicole about going from HOH to being evicted in one week. Nicole said that the guys made her sound like a huge threat, but she's not. Nicole says that she loves Donny when Julie asked if she would want to keep in touch with anyone in the house. The audience ahhed. Nicole said it was a smart move for Christine, but that Nicole is hurt. Julie asks about the relationship with Hayden. Nicole wants to see him in the jury house, but she doesn't know if the relationship would continue. Nicole watched BB since she was eight, and she had a great experience in the house. Christine hopes they can be friends outside. Frankie blabbed. Derrick looks forward to talking to her outside. Donny says that Nicole was his last, close friend in the house, and he will be very alone in the house. Nicole said that she would do things differently if she goes back in the house. Tease for the return to the house by a jury member next week, I'm sure. They did it last year when the fourth person went into the Jury.

We got to see some clips of the zombies in the mirrors that were in the BB house last night. Nicole saw it and screamed, scaring Zach who was with her. Frankie really di an extreme "scared" act when he saw it. They went in the bedroom, turned out the lights, and watched the mirrors. Then there was an emergency alert about zombies taking over everyone. They gave a series of details about the zombies that will make up the questions for the HOH competition. The backyard is setup like a graveyard; the competition is called "Dead of Household." It's an A or B quiz. The first question: which city was mentioned in the first announcement. Answer was B, Los Angeles. Caleb is out. How high can the zombie virus fever go. A, 113. Zombies appetite for human brains were insatiable. B. Donny and Victoria are out. Next question was A, and Zach is out. It's down to Cody, Derrick, and Frankie. The next few questions are a tie. Including having everyone get the answer wrong. Derrick and Frankie get the last question right, and they are the new HOHs. Gosh, I can't stand watching Frankie prancing and leaping around. Barf!

For some god-awful reason, BB brought Rachel Reilly back, with Julie asking Rachel questions about the current season. Rachel loves Zankie. Puke! Rachel thinks that Derrick will win this season. I had to stop listening because her voice got on my nerves!

Double HOH is over next week, and one of the jury members gets to come back. So I'm assuming an endurance competition next Thursday.

POV Show
I did not watch the whole BB show tonight, just bits and pieces. i was really not into watching the Frankie show. Over the past few days, Frankie, Christine, and Derrick got to go to the Dallas Cowboys practice, and from what Christine told the others, Frankie was quite a diva at the practice. i wonder when they will show the event since it wasn't on tonight's show.

Tonight we saw the reveal (which I purposefully missed, the POV competition, and the nomination of Nicole, who went up in Zach's place. We also got to see Victoria's shock when Zach told her that the Detonators was formed a few weeks ago instead of a few days ago, as Derrick told Victoria. Derrick has been playing everyone as much as Frankie has been, with misdirection and lies. Frankie and Zach did have it out a bit on the show tonight. Frankie tried to be offended because in his opinion, Zach came after him. Zach tried to explain that it was after Frankie tries to get Zach evicted twice. I'll be watching the live show tomorrow to see what happens. I only hope that Donny wins HOH, and that somehow Frankie goes home, but I'm not holding out much hope. I think they will being the jury back next week, when there are four people to compete. That's what they did last year.

Update on the Feeds
Zach won the POV, and used it on himself. Nicole went up in his place. Frankie claimed that Nicole was bad mouthing his sister because Nicole repeated what Frankie had said: that he had Victoria in his back pocket because Victoria loves his sister, and that Caleb now thinks that Frankie is Jesus. Frankie has really become annoying, and the feeds are irritating to watch as he prances around with his big head and demanding ways.

Standing Up For Principles
I'm joining the group of BB Feedsters, like Big Brother Gossip, who are boycotting tonight's and Wednesday's episodes of Big Brother. I've been really disgusted with how CBS manipulated the Battle of the Block to make it easier for Frankie to win on his own. And I'm really sick of the whole "Frankie Grande is a Superstar" treatment. Frankie is just trying to make money off his sister. So, no Big Brother for me until Thursday, when I can hopefully see someone win HOH who will put up Frankie.

Saturday, August 9, 2014 -- Evening

I'm disgusted. The Battle of the Block was delayed yesterday, and it's probably because CBS and the BB producers came up with a competition for Frankie to play by himself. It seems from what the others said, Caleb was disqualified because he was going to throw the competition, and Derrick and Cody talked about how the competition was one that was easier to win by a single person instead of a team. So Frankie won. Then Frankie told everyone he was related to Ariana Grande. Whoopee! The thing is that Nicole started to say that she was sorry that she put him up, and she would never do that again. And Caleb has been kissing Frankie's ass now because Caleb thinks Frankie will get him a record contract. Frankie is also claiming he is going to give money to a charity. Well, he could give them a dollar and fill that promise. CBS does this all the time, and in my opinion, this stuff ruins the game. If CBS didn't interfere, Frankie would probably be going out this week. Now chances are strong that Frankie will make the finals, and probably win. Disgusting!!

Possible BB House Drama
Christine and Nicole won HOH last night, and they made their nominations today. Christine put up Zach and Donny, and Nicole put up Caleb and Frankie. The plan is to get rid of Frankie this week, and if Frankie gets himself off with the POV, to put up Christine (unless Christine wins the POV and uses it on Frankie). Caleb claims that during the Battle of the Block, he's going to sit down, and not play, while asking Frankie questions about his performance. It will be interesting to see what goes down. Some feedsters are wondering if CBS is going to play it's usual tricks to keep Frankie in the house by making the Battle of the Block an individual competition, so it won't matter if Caleb doesn't compete. Also, Frankie has been running around telling people in the house that he has something to tell them that is not game related. It may be that CBS has given Frankie the green light to say that he's related to Ariana Grande, like anyone will know who she is, or care who she is.

Thursday, August 7, 2014 -- Afternoon

POV Show
Again, I was behind schedule. However, I have to admit that this week was a boring one, until last night, in the BB house. Christine did not use the POV, and it seemed sure that Zach was on the way out. What got my goat was that Derrick and Frankie were chastising Zach for sexist remarks when THEY were the ones who encouraged it so they could win Team America money. JERKS!! However, last night, Caleb started talking to Derrick about how they need to keep their numbers and to keep Zach in. Derrick saw the light, and it seems that maybe Jocasta might get voted out. I can only hope that she does, praise god! :)

Now on to the show. Zach went off to the Have Not room because he was unhappy with losing the Battle of the Block. Jocasta is trying to be happy about being on the block. Her plan, HA, is to win the POV. Yeah, right. Caleb was complaining about being chained to Victoria, shaving his hair, and eating slop. Caleb claims he will look dumb. Frankie says that he would have sex with Caleb even more after the head shaving. Nicole and Victoria celebrate because Nicole is going to target Frankie. Caleb watches Zach making food, and says it looks good. Zach says that Caleb chose slop to which Caleb says he chose to be a winner. Zach says he chose that too, only he failed. Caleb says that he won, but he's worse off than Zach. Zach says he is on the block, and he would shave his head, armpits, legs, arms, and toes to stay in the house.

Meanwhile Frankie goes up into the HOH bed with Nicole. Frankie asks what Nicole wants. Nicole says for Zach to go home. Frankie says that everyone is probably against Zach. Nicole doesn't trust Frankie because he is trying to get information. Frankie says that it will be all out war soon.

Caleb and Victoria go to get their Adam and Eve outfits. Frankie says it will be a double murder because Caleb and Victoria hate each other. Caleb calls himself Beast Mode Adam. Caleb calls Victoria a nincompoop. It's hilarious to see them arguing in the DR. Then we see Caleb crying over getting his hair cut. Caleb claims that he will use Miracle Grow to get his hair back. Frankie thinks it's really hot to see Caleb's hair getting shaved and exposing his nicely rounded skull.

Derrick talks about the alliance with Nicole, Hayden, and Cody. Derrick says that he and Cody have to solidify their alliance. Hayden says he trusts Derrick and Cody the most, which is really stupid. Nicole always wanted to make a BB alliance, so she's happy. Then they start to come up with names. They come up with The Rationale. Derrick thinks it's stupide, but if Nicole's plan falls apart, Derrick is Team Detonators all the way. Christine wants Zach to go home because he put her up. Also, Christine feels that her connection with Nicole is falling part. Christine says that if Frankie wins POV and takes out Zach, then Nicole should put up Derrick or Cody. Also, Christine is against Hayden. Christine makes up a story that Hayden and Victoria kissed. That could backfire on Christine. I hope it does because I don't like her. So Hayden goes to the HOH room, and Nicole tells Hayden that Christine told her that Hayden and Victoria were making out, and that Hayden told Christine that he loved Victoria. Hayden says it shows Christine's cards very well. Nicole also said that Hayden wants Zach to stay, and is going to voting for him. Nicole is upset that Christine is trying to manipulate her.

Nicole tells Cody that Christine was trying to get her to put up Derrick or Cody. Nicole says that moving forward, they have to really watch Christine and not trust her at all. Cody then gets to tell Derrick that Christine said Cody or Derrick to go up. Cody says that Christine must be working with someone. Cody thinks it's Christine and Frankie and that Frankie needs to go home. Time to pick players for the veto. Nicole picks Caleb. Zach picks Christine, and Jocasta picks Victoria. No one that Nicole wanted to have picked were picked. Zach says in DR that if he doesn't win against this bunch, he should be called a Froot Lopp dingus.

We then see a slew of outtakes of Caleb and Victoria chained together. Caleb called them a couple, and then took it back. He calls Victoria tremendously annoying. Zach talks with the Detonators and says that he is going to try to win, and he is going to be okay anyway because he has the votes. Christine says she won't vote for him. Derrick says that he and Cody will either blow up the Detonators or throw the Rationale to the curb.

The Comic Book POV competition It's time for the POV competition. They have to go one at a time. The back yard is setup with a studio wall and window. Through the window, they can see sixteen BB comic book covers. They have to go onto a "computer" wall, and match up what they have with the way the BB studio is setup. They have to slide by on a zip line to see into the studio, and they have more than one version of the comic. Plus the comics have to go in the right order. When they have the comics setup, they push the buzzer. If nay are wrong, the clock still goes on, and they have to fix the comic (without knowing which is wrong). They only have 35 minutes to complete the game. If not, they are out. It's the typical, make one thing look like another timed event. Nicole went first. She got the first one wrong, and then realized that she got her comic wrong. She felt that she wasted valuable time. Cody tries to win for his boy, Zach. Caleb loves his and Amber's comic book covers. AS Caleb said, he may have to sneak the Amber cover into his room. Victoria is next. Victoria loves the comic book covers, even hers. I think she looks like a guy in it. Victoria says that this is so out of her element. She's not strong in her arms, and she's afraid of heights. Victoria can't get it right, and eventually runs out of time. Jocasta is next, saying that she is going to win the POV, and show her family that she is a super hero. Jocasta is delusional. Jocasta could not figure out what was wrong, but she finished before time ran out. Christine goes next. She wants Zach to go home. Finally Zach gets to go, after sitting and waiting. Zach thinks he's rolling. He got two wrong the first time, and the same two wrong the second time. Zach could swear he has them all right. Zach just claims he finished it and starts throwing things around instead of making suer he has them in the right order. After wasting time, he realized that he had the Donny and Victoria covers switched. Zach has a breakdown because he just ruined his chances to win the POV. He just has a meltdown in the back yard.

Everyone comes out to see the comic book covers. Cody says he loves Zac Effron, and was his body guard on the cover of his comic. Nicole finished in 12:20. Caleb had 15:48. Victoria had 35:00. Caleb made fun of Victoria. Jocasta had 14:39. Christine had 11:50. Zach had 26:17. Poor Zach. Christine got the POV. I really hate Christine. She reminds me physically of someone I know and don't like that much. Zach says that he may have called Christine a floater, but she'e the only one who can save Zach. Nicole wants Christine to use the veto, so Nicole can target Frankie. Christine goes to talk to Frankie, Derrick, and Cory. Christine says that she will convince Nicole that Zach stays. Zach tells Christine, "thank you. I have never loved you so much in my life." Christine doesn't know what to do, and whether she should turn the Detonators against Zach.

Victoria says that guys would be praying to be attached to her. Caleb said and after 48 hours, they would want to be rid of her. HA! Then we get to see Nicole and Hayden snuggling. Hayden tells Nicole that he is going to call Christine, "Christine Appleseed." Nicole thought that Christine would be the one person that Christine would trust. Zach wants Christine to not use the veto because Jocasta would get sent home. Jocasta thinks that Zach would go home. Time for the veto meeting. Zach makes a stupid joke about a grasshopper going into a bar. The bartender says he has a drink named after him. The grasshopper says, you have a drink called Bill? Christine does not use the veto because it was too risky. Christine is going to make it her mission to get Zach out. Nicole wants Zach out, and Derrick says that Zach may not be safe.

Sunday BB Show
Tonight's show started with the tie breaker for the HOH competition. The question was in seconds, what was the total length of the Giddy Up POV competition from official start to end? The answer was 568 seconds, which means that Donny and Nicole because they were the closest. Zach stormed off, pretending to pissed because he didn't want to be a target to the others. Derrick wonders if Donny will be loyal to Team America. Frankie wonders if his alliance will be safe because they aren't HOH. Jocasta was crying because she's stupid and unable to win any competition. Derrick was consoling her. Jocasta wanted to see pictures of her family or hear from them. Derrick tells her that Donny will keep her safe. Hmm.

Then we see Donny and Nicole talking. Donny would to get Hayden's input, because as Donny says, he knows that Hayden hangs with the other side and may have input. Donny and Nicole tolk about the three who never were nominated: Cody, Frankie, and Derrick. Nicole claims that the guys need to know what the girls were feeling. In the storage room, Zach tells Nicole to put him on the block. He claims that he deserves it, and Nicole won't tell Zach anything. Zach thinks he's playing reverse psychology. Nicole won't tell Zach anything, even though he says that he won't say anything. Derrick and Frankie talk about how Donny cost them each five grand in the last Team America competition. Already they are planning on threatening Donny. Asses! Derrick goes to talk to Nicole about who she is going to put up. Nicole says that she is thinking about Zach. Nicole also says that Frankie is everywhere. As Nicole says, Frankie is everywhere, and he's friends with everyone. Derrick says that he agreed with backdooring Frankie, but he really isn't in with the plan.

Donny was happy to see a picture of his beautiful girlfriend Christine. He was also glad that his house mates could see that Donny's girlfriend is so hot. Caleb claimed that he wanted to get hooked up with Nicole's girlfriend. As if! Donny got a letter from his girlfriend. Donny's letter was really nice, and his girlfriend said some nice, romantic things to him. Caleb is nervous about Donny being HOH. Caleb tells Donny that he does not want to go up. Donny tells Caleb that Donny was up three time, and Caleb put up Donny as a target. Caleb denies it, but Donny isn't a dummy. Caleb tries to talk Donny into not putting him up because Caleb will fight for Donny in the future. Then Caleb said that if he does go up, he does not want to go up with Donny. Idiot! So now Donny knows who to put up with Caleb.

Nicole and Hayden are playing pool. Nicole is not good at the game, but Hayden tries to help him. Hayden says that Nicole knows what she is doing because she hit the pool ball off the table and into Hayden's balls. Donny tells Derrick and Frankie that he would not either of them up. Derrick wants Donny to remain HOH because it will derail Nicole's plan. Frankie says that he doesn't want to tell Donny anything. Donny agrees to put up Victoria, and to talk Nicole into Jocasta. Nicole and Donny talk about putting up Victoria and both say that they don't want to put up Jocasta. Nicole says that she would put up Frankie as a badkdoor. Donny said that if Nicole backdoors Frankie, he's okay with that. Donny says that he would be a vote against Frankie. Nicole says that it will be a huge risk because if Frankie does not go home, he will be after her.

Zach goes into the HOH room, and Christine says that Zach looks suspicious. Zach wants to talk with Nicole. Now Zach wants to explain to Nicole that it's not a good idea to put him up. Zach says that she better not putting him up. Zach says that Nicole needs to put up weak players, and that Nicole should not go against the grain. Zach tells her that if she puts up two weak players, she can backdoor anyone.

Nicole wants a strong competitor to go out this week. Donny doesn't want to be a bigger target in weeks to come. Nicole went first, and she nominated Jocasta and Zach. Donny nominated Caleb and Victoria. Donny said that it's tit for tat wiwh Caleb, and that Caleb should consider them even after this. Victoria has been the target of others, so it won't be on his hands. Caleb thinks he's going into the Battle of the Block by himself because Victoria is such a weak player. Derrick tells Nicole that she did great. Then Frankie comes running into the room, telling Nicole that she did everything perfect. Donny tells Zach that he's sorry that Zach is up. Zach says in DR that next week when he wins HOH, Nicole will be up again.

Zach tells Frankie that there's no way he will lose to Caleb and Victoria. As Zach tells Frankie, Caleb and Victoria hate each other and will be screaming at him. Frankie then snuggles with Zach. Zach talks with Jocasta. They agree they have to communicate and they have to win. Jocasta calls herself Mama J, and she says that Zach doesn't talk back to her because she is Mama J. Meanwhile, Victoria goes to talk with Caleb. Victoria says that they have had differences, and Victoria tells Caleb to give her direction. Victoria says that it is just communication.

Time for Battle of the Block. Christine is the hostess. The backyard is setup like a kid's playroom. They have to create a path of dominos to their buzzer, and then push over the dominos to ring the buzzer. They have to choose three punishment dominos to include in the mix. Zach and Jocasta do not want to shave their heads, so they are missing that one. Caleb doesn't want to shave his head, but it looks like the quickest route there. Zach and Jocasta take the no HOH next week. Victoria was working well, grabbing dominoes, and running, and not needing to be directed. Caleb and Victoria pick Adam and Eve. Both Zach/Jocasta and Caleb/Victoria take slop for two weeks. Caleb says the turns are going to be difficult. Victoria tells Caleb that Jocasta is ready to push dominos down. Zach and Jocasta went far, but they stopped at a curve. Caleb said "at the end of the day" they had to go, and they did get all of the dominos to fall. Victoria showed them that she could win. They will be on slop for two weeks, Caleb will shave his head, and they will have to wear Adam and Eve bathing suits, and chained together for 48 hours. Jocasta claims that she is going to win the POV. Yeah, right! Zach says Jocasta will go home.

Caleb and Victoria dressed as Adam and Eve
Big Brother Update
Donny and Nicole each decided to put up someone from the dominate group os males, so Donny put up Caleb and Victoria while Nicole put up Jocasta and Zach. Of course, it made sense for Nicole to put up Zach because he put her up last week. The problem for me is that Caleb and Victoria won the Battle of the Block. It seems there were punishments in the competition, and Caleb and Victoria have to spend 48 hours handcuffed to each other and dressed like Adam and Eve. Well, Adam and Eve with trunks and bikini. So it's really not the same. The outfits look like fig leaves as you can see in the screen capture. Unfortunately, Christine won the POV last night, and it seems like she is not going to use it. Now, Cody and Derrick were talking with Hayden and Nicole about putting up Frankie as a replacement nomination and voting him out. But as I said, I doubt that Christine will use the POV. That probably means that Zach will go home, and unfortunately for those of us watching the feeds and show, Zach will take the entertainment with him. Well, we'll have to see if the Detonators get rid of one of their own. This coming Thursday is a double eviction, so we'll have to see who is still left standing next Friday.

Donny and Nicole discuss their nominations as HOH
Donny and Nicole are HOH
Donny and Nicole won HOH. At least they are being congratulated. Good job! This should shake things up! They are talking in the hive room about nominations, and how they have to know what they will be doing.

Thursday, July 31, 2014 -- Evening

Double Eviction Next Thursday
As we wait for the HOH results, Julie mentioned something about next week being a double eviction. I missed it because the DVR switched to record another show. So I'm not sure how that will all happen because it sounded like there will still be two HOHs this week.

Thursday, July 31, 2014 -- Afternoon

Catchup on POV Show
I'm finally getting a chance to catchup on last night's BB show. However, the Team America challenge came through last night, and it's for the Team to vote against the house, but blame it on someone else. When Derrick told Donny, Donny was not interested in doing it. As Donny said, he came to play the game for himself, and not for America. However, Frankie is a money grubbing, self-centered, egotistical schmuck, and he is trying to force Donny into it. I was thinking that I would like Frankie, but in the past week, his ego, and head, have exploded in size. They need to get that kid out now. Frankie says that they can blame Zach and Caleb. Poor Zach is really being thrown under the bus by his chum. If Donny doesn't do it, Frankie told Derrick that they should target Donny next week.

Now onto the show. The show started right after the Battle of the Block, and Frankie says to Zach that two week players are competing for POV. Frankie wants to backdoor Amber, and says that he needs to get Caleb onboard. Zach thinks that he and Frankie are tight (HA), and that Amber has to go. Nicole and Christine celebrate winning the Battle of the Block. Elsewhere, Victoria is crying, and saying how much she hates Jocasta. As Victoria says in DR, it was all Jocasta's fault. Jocasta calls Victoria a toddler, and then tells Victoria that it is all good. That's because Jocasta thinks that Victoria will go out before here. In the HOH room, Zach talks with Cody and Frankie. Zach says that he needs to irritate people, so he plans on going downstairs to eat in front of the have nots, Christine and Nicole. Then Zach asks if they want Starburst or beef jerky. Nicole makes a comment about eating slop, and Zach says, that's what you get for being lazy. Up in HOH, Cody is telling Frankie that Zach put up on of his alliance. Frankie says that if Zach runs around attacking the villagers, they may decide to revolt. Cody thinks Zach will blow up everything.

Frankie tells Zach to calm down so everyone doesn't start asking Frankie to put up Zach. As Frankie says, he wants to get Zach to explode, but at the right time so Frankie gets money from Team America. I really hate that Team America crap. Nicole does a strip tease to get rid of her germitard. It looked very awkward, but Hayden said he wouldn't have it any other way. Hayden says that Victoria is alone in the house. So he goes up to Victoria, and asks if she will pick him for the POV if she gets house guest choice. Nicole sees it going down and thinks that Victoria and Hayden are making out. Hayden sees it as a vote for him and Nicole. Nicole says that she wants to know what is going on because she likes Hayden and wants to know what is going on. Hayden of course tells Nicole that he he kissed Victoria, and Nicole believed it.

Then we found out that Derrick's grandfather died. He came out of DR, gave the others the letter, and then said that he had to go off and be by himself. As Derrick says, getting this news is really difficult. Derrick says that the worst is not being there for the funeral. Derrick goes into the Have Not room to cry by himself. Unlike the Frankie show, Derrick just kept quiet.

Amber is cleaning something in the kitchen, and Caleb goes to talk to her, and Amber ignores him. Caleb doesn't know why Amber is ignoring him because they had a really good date! (HA) Caleb claims that he doesn't care anymore, then BB shows Caleb talking on and on about Amber. Caleb tries to call himself Beast mode Cowboy. Then Frankie and Zach are in the HOH bed, and Zach is giving Frankie a back rub. Zach says that if he was gay, Frankie would be his guy. Frankie says that Zach is petting Frankie to sleep every night. They are a nice couple.

Time to pick for the veto competition. Jocasta wants Donny to play so he can win for her again. Frankie picks Donny. Victoria gets house guest choice, and she picks Hayden. Nicole doesn't like that. Jocasta picks Christine. Christine does not like that the Detonators put her up. Christine plans on winning to show that she can. (HA) Amber tells Frankie that the nominations should stay the same because only Donny can go up, and she doesn't like that idea. Frankie says in DR that Amber should not worry about Donny going up because it will be Amber.

Caleb goes up to the HOH room because Amber isn't talking to him. Frankie says that he'll take care of Caleb. Caleb says no more romantic cowboy in this house.

The POV competition Time for the Veto competition. The backyard is converted into the wild west. Donny really thought it looked realistic. They have to get on a horse, rock it forward and back for 60 rocks, then they have 30 seconds to dismount and stack 50 gold bars on top of their horse shoe. They have to get back on the horse before the 30 seconds times out. If it does, they are out of the game unless they agree to eat slop for a full week. So as the 30 seconds wind down, they can run back, and get 30 more seconds. Victoria claims she won last week instead of Caleb being too stupid to take the veto. Hayden wants to pull it off and win. Christine wants everything to stay the same. Jocasta stacks her blocks stupidly, and half of them fall as she runs to get back on the horse. That girl is a waste of space. Frankie talks about how his nether regions hurt. It seems he rubbed himself raw. As Zach says, Donny was not rocking as hard as the others, and he was hoping that others would win so it would end. Jocasta did not watch the clock and ran out of time so she had to take slop. Frankie had 40 bars up when he knocked them all down. Victoria is not aware that she is in a competition. Jocasta claims that Satan was knocking down her blocks. Christine buzzed in first, but she didn't realize that she left a bunch of bars on the ground. Idiot! So Hayden won. Hayden was excited that he got the job done. Jocasta says that she has to focus now on how to stay in the game. Frankie hopes that Hayden will use the veto on someone so he can backdoor Amber this week.

In the HOH room, the guys ask Hayden about the veto. Hayden says that he is using the veto on Victoria. Frankie says that he has to get Caleb on their side. Hayden doesn't have a problem with it, because it's not one of his folks, like Nicole. Zach says that the showmance that never was is on the rocks. As Zach says, he smells blood in the air. Zach asks Amber why she broke up with Caleb, and she's pissed. Zach runs down and tells Caleb that Amber said Caleb is blowing everything out of proportion. Caleb is feeling pissed off, and he thinks that he has to give Amber a good scare and get her back in line. (HA) As Zach says, it is too easy to get Caleb to agree. Caleb goes up to talk to Frankie, and says that Hayden should use the veto on Jocasta and that this will get Amber back in line. Caleb says that he's running the game, so this will be the opportunity to bring her in line. Frankie doesn't realize who is more clueless, Caleb or Amber. The plan was that if Amber blew them up, they would send her home.

We had a blurb for the Team America vote to either put in votes against the house, or to get people to throw the competition in their favor. As we know, the vote against the house won. I don't think they will be doing it though based on action from the live feeds.

Frankie calls up Derrick and Donny to chat in the HOH. Frankie told the pair that they don't need to have two people have a heated argument. Frankie tells Donny that Amber will be backdoored when Hayden uses the veto, and that Zach will go and attach Amber. Donny asks for no details because he wants to be surprised. As Donny said, it will be very entertaining.

Hayden used the veto to take Victoria off the block after giving them both the chance to talk. Jocasta praised god, and said that Hayden wasn't her target. Victoria says that she showed she is a competitor, who knows how. Frankie claims he didn't know that would happen. Frankie nominated Amber. Zach looks agape. Zach then says he wants to say something really quick. Zach says that he can't be happier that she is on the block. Zach goes into the whole these are all the things that Caleb has been doing for you, like eating the pickle. The mission failed because Amber didn't say anything. Caleb's face was turning red.

Memory Wall Studies
Studying the memory wall I'm not sure if I will have a chance to watch the BB show tonight, but I can watch tomorrow afternoon. There has been some action in the house, when the other guys told Caleb that Amber was going to target him if she stayed in the house, and that she really did want to go on the date with Caleb. Caleb has been ready to explode and was going to confront her and do mean things to her. The girl can't help that she can't stand Caleb. After all, he is one hot mess. The guys managed to talk Caleb down, but he has been depressed and crying. What a wuzz! Just now in the late afternoon, BB has been showing video clips of previous events in the house, and the house guests have been studying them, see above. There are rumors that it will be a double eviction tomorrow, but who knows. It does seem likely. More on tonight's show tomorrow.

Monday, July 28, 2014 -- Afternoon

The Zach and Frankie Show
I missed Big Brother last night, but I caught up this afternoon. Nicole couldn't be happier for Frankie, but she's worried about Zach because you don't know what he will do. Derrick reiterates that Zach is a wild card. We get more tender music, and Frankie crying, while people say they had to give him the HOH. Really? They should not allow the outside world to intrude into the game because then crap like this happens. Cody and Zach celebrated in the pantry. Jocasta talks to Donny. Jocasta thinks that she will be put up with Donny. Donny realizes that he can go up there because they seem to be picking him, Victoria, or Jocasta. Frankie celebrates with Zach in the hive room (looks like a honeycomb with seats). Frankie calls them Zankie. Frankie wants Zach to get blood on his hands. Zach doesn't care because he loves the Zach Attack. Zach wants to send Amber home, and get blood on his hands. Zach then talked to Caleb, still looking all made up with his mascara and blush. Yep, he does do that. Caleb does not want Amber to go up. However, Caleb thinks that Amber is getting too big for her britches, and forgetting who is keeping her in the game. Mainly Caleb wants Amber kissing his ass. Caleb tells Amber that Zach thinks that Amber is out to get Zach. Amber tries to pin the blame on Donny and Jocasta, but it wasn't them who told Zach that Amber was out to get him.

Blah! HOH room reveal. Zach shows everyone pictures of his little brother. Then we got to see pictures of Frankie's grandfather. Then Frankie goes crazy over getting Justin Bieber music. Frankie talks to Christine, and they agree that Zach is crazy. Zach tells Christine that he wants to nominate her with Amber and have Christine throw the competition. Christine refuses to throw the competition. As Zach says, Christine brings nothing to the competition, and he's pissed in DR that she does nothing for the alliance.

Now we find out about the pickle thing. Amber was eating a pickle, and Caleb said that you could not pay him to eat a pickle. So Amber said that she would go on a date with him if he ate a pickle. He ate the pickle, calling it the nastiest thing ever in his mouth. Now as Amber says, she doesn't know how to get out of the date, and she wishes that she had kept her mouth shut. Caleb calls himself a helpless romantic. BB makes the date look lame and awkward. Caleb had the guys help him drag chairs near the pool. Then Caleb kept on talking about stuff while Amber was looking over at Cody playing pool. Caleb wants her eyes on him. In DR, Amber says that was her first and last date with Caleb, but that he doesn't realize it. Cody worries that Amber can't be put on the block, and Zach asks why. Cody says because it will blow up the Bomb Squad, and Zach says to who? Victoria? Good one! Cody realizes that Zach is like a lit firecracker. Frankie says that he would put up Donny, but he didn't want to. As Zach says, people who don't pull their own weight should be put on the block. Frankie says that Zach looks like a monster to Frankie. Zach says that he is looking after himself.

Zach really likes Nicole because she is extremely gullible. Zach tells her in a perfect world, he would put up Christine and Amber, and have Christine throw the competition. Zach asks Nicole that he has things he can't tell her. He then starts talking about how much Nicole trusts Christine. Nicole denies that she is in an alliance with Christine, but Nicole gets paranoid and confused, and goes to talk to Christine. Nicole says that she wants to confide in Christine, and Christine tells Nicole that Zach is nuts and claims there is no alliance. Nicole says that her heart would be broken if Christine has been playing her this whole time. NIcole is so gullible!

Derrick and Cody play pool, and talk about what a great game they are playing together. Derrick tells Cody that he whole heartedly believe that he and Cody wil make it to the end. Derrick says that the alliance is too large: Zach unpredictable, Frankie charismatic and sly, and Christine, floating, but methodical. Cody and Derrick try to come up with a name for their alliance of two. Derrick comes up the Hitman. Donny gets the Team America mission of having two house guests have a heated argument at the nomination or veto ceremony, and it has to last 20 seconds. This has since changed as we know on the feeds to just have someone go off for 20 seconds. How lame!!

Zach starts prepping his speech for the nomination ceremony. Zach calls Christine a floater, and Frankie and Derrick see this a way to complete the Team American mission. Amber admits in DR that Zach is her target. Amber goes into the HOH room to talk to Zach. As Zach says in DR, thanks for getting me up at 5 a.m. to discuss this. He says he will backdoor her, which is the plan.

We now get the nominations ceremony. Frankie nominates Jocasta and Victoria. Zach nominates Christine and Nicole. Zach is ready to bathe in blood he says. Frankie says that he did it because it is strategic because by nominating people he already put up, he doesn't get any additional blood on his hands. Zach says that Christine because of her floating. For Nicole, Zach says that Nicole looks looks so cute in her germatard. However, the girls don't argue with Zach, they laugh! Christine says she is pissed off in DR. Nicole is laughing hysterically, and Zach says "no hard feelings I guess." Nicole was surprised to be called a Froot Loop dingus. Nicole says her feelings are hurt. Then after laughing, she starts crying. Amber, Jocasta, and Hayden go to comfort Nicole. Christine talks to Zach about telling Nicole not to trust Christine. Christine says that she is upset only over that. Victoria and Jocasta talk, and Jocasta claims that she is going to win. As Jocasta says, she needs to get Victoria to win the competition. Because Jocasta can't compete.
Christine and Nicole compete in the Battle of the Block
Then Frankie talks to Nicole and Christine, making it about Frankie. Frankie throws Zach under the bus as only a good BB best friend would. Blah!

For the Battle of the Block, the backyard has been made into a wedding celebration. The pairs have to build a giant, stable wedding cake. Then they have to climb it and stand on the top for three seconds. Victoria and Jocasta are doomed! Nicole grabbed the pieces while Christine stacked them. Christine and Nicole seem to be on the same page. Jocasta is upset because she told Victoria they have to alternate hard and soft. Zach is cheering for Victoria. Christine and Nicole start climbing. So do Victoria and Jocasta, but their tower is falling apart, and they fall. Christine and Nicole easily win. Zach says his reign as HOH may be over, but he gets to play next week. Jocasta talks about winning the veto. HAHAHAHAHAHA!

Amber, Frankie, Christine

Friday, July 25, 2014 -- Evening

Frankie is HOH
There was controversy overnight, and most of it was stirred up by Zach. In order to complete the Team America challenge this week, Frankie and Derrick egged Zach on to nominate Christine, and to call her out on her lack of doing anything so far this season. Zach nominated Christine and Nicole, after going back and forth over nominating Amber. Frankie nominated Jocasta and Victoria. Well, you can imagine what happened in the Battle of the Block. Christine and Nicole won, so Zach was dethroned, and Frankie is the sole HOH. His nominations are still on the block: Jocasta and Victoria. So far, the plan may be to backdoor Amber, but who knows how the POV goes and if Frankie would have the balls to do anything.

Thursday, July 24, 2014 -- Evening

Eviction and New HOHs
Time for the eviction and HOH show. The show started with Donny talking about Cody assuring Donny that Donny would not go up. Brittany said that Donny has been by her side this whole time, and she hates knowing she has to campaign against him. Meanwhile, Cody is crying and angry in the HOH room because he put up Donny after promising not to. Also Cody does not believe that Donny should be on the block. Derrick and Frankie tried to tell Cody that this was the best move. Frankie runs over to assure Donny that Donny has Frankie's vote and everyone is out to get rid of Brittany. Then Donny talks to Derrick. Derrick feels terrible about Donny too. Derrick also tells Donny that he is safe. Donny is suspicious that Derrick is the kingpin and behind Donny going up. Cody talks to Donny about the nomination. Donny says that being a Big Brother fan, he knows that pawns go home. Donny tried to fish for information about the bigger alliance with Cody, but could not get information. Then Brittany talks with Caleb about Donny being a bigger threat her. Caleb thinks that keeping Brittany is safer for his game than Donny. Caleb then goes talking to the others about how Brittany should stay because she fought harder. Caleb really campaigns to get rid of Donny. I'm not a fan of Caleb. He's a real jerk and psycho.

We then had a segment about Frankie's grandfather dying. Frankie gets the letter in the DR, then comes out and tells the other, crying. Brittany read Frankie's letter out loud to everyone. Frankie's grandfather, also named Frank, died of cancer. Frankie then told stories about his grandfather, and how his grandfather was the first to accept Frankie being gay. They all gave Frankie a group hug.

They go to the living room to talk to the house guests. Frankie gets condolences from Julie. Caleb said that he needed the money more than the veto. Zach was glad that he got the trip. Cody said that coming up with the replacement nomination was the hardest thing. Then they find out that the have nots are based on lack of activity with the fitness bracelet. They are Nicole, Caleb, Christine, and Derrick.

Then we get a segment on Nicole and Hayden. We got the typical interviews with the family about how wonderful they are. Then we saw some kissing in one of the beds.

Brittany and Donny get to make a speech. Brittany says she's a professional being there three times. Brittany says that she has never given up. Brittany asks for one more chance and acknowledges that Donny stood beside her. Donny thanked God for playing BB, and that he loves his family, and there is a special place in his heart for each and every one of them. Donny also blesses America. Time for the vote:
Brittany is out. Julie asks about the landslide vote against her. Brittany said that there are a lot of people in there who are just scared, and want to stay in the house. Brittany thought that she was a target three times because it was easier to put up the same people all the time. Time for the good-bye messages. Zach said it was better to get rid of her for his game, and he didn't care if he didn't see her. Jocasta said it was hard for her, but Donny saved her. Hayden said that Brittany is unpredictable. Donny said that he hoped she did get the message because otherwise it would be him. He said he is going to miss their nightly ice cream dates. For a first, CBS brought Brittany's three kids on the stage to say hello.

Time for the HOH competition. It's a two at a time competition based on pervious competitions. They will hear a song, and have to determine if it is about HOH, Battle of the Block, or POV. The person who wins pick the next two to face off, etc. If not one buzzes in, both are out. Christine goes against Hayden and gets HOH for the song, and wins. She picks Donny and Jocasta. Donny got Battle of the Block first. Jocasta is out. He picked Frankie and Caleb to face off. Frankie quickly got Bottle of the Block. Caleb is out. He then picked Amber and Victoria. Amber guessed that it was the POV competition, and got it right. Victoria is out. Amber picked Donny and Derrick. Derrick guessed HOH, and got it. Donny is out. Derrick picked Zach and Nicole because they did not go yet. Zach beat Nicole to the POV competition, and Nicole is out. Zach picks Amber and Christine. Christine picked Battle of the Block, and knocked out Amber. Frankie and Derrick are up next. Derrick asked Frankie if he wanted to see his grandfather, and Derrick did not buzz in. Frankie is the first HOH. Zach and Christine were up next, and Zach got Battle of the Block. Zach is the second HOH.

Derrick said that he gave Frankie the win because some things are bigger than the game, like Frankie seeing a picture of his grandfather. The next task for Team America is to play puppet master and get two house guests to get into an argument at either the nomination or veto ceremony.

Thursday, July 24, 2014 -- Afternoon

POV Show
Now for catchup on last night's show. The show started with the post Battle of the Block ceremony. It seems the gibbering that Jocasta was doing was talking in tongues. That woman is a whack job! Cody is hoping that things don't go wrong with the POV. Frankie is glad that Brittany is still on the block and the target. We now see Zach talking to Brittany. Brittany claims that everyone is acting as if she is shunned. Brittany said that she trusted Cody, and that got her on the block. Zach says that there is nothing Brittany or her boobs can do to save her. Brittany says that she is alone. Victoria is telling Hayden the same thing: does not trust and all alone on the game. Victoria doesn't seem to understand that she is on the Big Brother reality show.

Next we see Cody and Brittany together in the HOH room. Meanwhile, Caleb goes around creeping in the hall, crawling so he can be in stealth mode and not seen by the HOH cameras. Caleb hates seeing Cody with his hands on Amber. Caleb leaves pissed, and the others in the HOH room comment on it. Caleb then talks to Zach about how he hates Cody having his hands all over Caleb's woman. Zach says in DR that Amber is not interested in Caleb, and Zach is going to relay the whole conversation back to Cody ASAP. Caleb is out in the backyard being pissed because Amber does not appreciate him. Caleb said that for the past week Amber has been all over Cody. Brittany says that the reason she has not been after Cody is because all the other girls are after him. Caleb says that he is evicting Victoria because she doesn't do anything. Caleb tells Brittany that she can talk to him anytime.

Up in the HOH room, Zach tells Cody that Caleb is upset with him. Cody says that he doesn't care Caleb has been creepily obsessed with Amber. Frankie says that Caleb is alone in the game, so that means it's not that bad. Cody does not like that Caleb is after him.

Time to pick for the POV. Cody picks Zach. Victoria picks Nicole. Brittany picks house guest choice, and she picks Caleb. Cody does not understand why Brittany picked Caleb, and suspects they are working together. Brittany claims it is because Caleb looked yummy in his shirt. Barf! Caleb tells Cody that Brittany picked Caleb because they were talking in the backyard.

Time for the POV Competition. The backyard is setup like a soccer stadium. The house guests got to find out that Germany won the World Cup. In each round, they use a mechanical foot to kick a soccer ball on a numbered grid. The person with the lowest points in the round is out. That person gets to pick a prize. It's the typical the person who gets out after the first one can take any of the previous prizes. The veto is one of the prizes. Cody was the first out with a 4. The sixth place prize is the veto. Brittany doesn't get it on the grid and gets a zero in the second round, so Brittany is eliminated. Brittany gets the fifth prize, which is a penalty kick. She exchanges it with the veto. Now Cody has to give himself ten kicks in the butt with the mechanical foot whenever the whistle goes off. Zach is out next, and his fourth round prize is a trip to Germany. Zach says he'll take Frankie. NIcole is out next, and the third place prize which is to score 2400 soccer goals in 24 hours. If she doesn't do it, she will not be able to compete in the next POV. Nicole trades it for the POV. Final round: Caleb versus Victoria. Victoria misses the grid and gets a zero. Caleb just has to make the grid. He gets the 50. Victoria get the second place prize which $5000. Victoria trades Nicole for the $5000 and gets the veto. Caleb gets the germitard. Caleb trades for the money. When he does that, Nicole says "are you serious?" Donny says to Hayden that Caleb is not a team player and a dumbo. Donny hopes that Cody nominates Caleb to go on the block. Victoria is happy with the veto. Even Brittany can't understand Caleb taking the money. Cody is really mad at Caleb for his stupidity. Cody thinks that Caleb looks good as a replacement.

Frankie goes up to the HOH with Cody and Zach. Cody says that Caleb should go on the block, and he thinks that might be the best for his game. Even though Frankie agrees that Caleb was dumb, he is an ally, and Frankie wants to stick to the plan. Brittany realizes that she is through with the game. Brittany seems to be really bad at making the net, which is really close. Then Cody has to give himself kicks in the butt. Nicole then gets a germitard, which is basically lederhosen. Brittany thinks making little kicks is SOOOO difficult. Baby! Donny talks to Hayden and Zach about putting up Caleb because it would be great to get Caleb out of the house. Zach really likes that because Caleb is a liability.
In 12 hours, Brittany only had 1000 kicks. She was whining that her toes were broken. Donny is trying to comfort Brittany, but she's just whining about how hard is to do this. Donny, NIcole, and Hayden start to cheer Brittany on. They all line up as she makes her 2400 kick.

In the HOH room, Zach tries to talk Cody into putting up Caleb. Derrick says that Caleb would go home if that happens. Derrick says that Donny should go up. Cody says that not putting up Caleb is good for everyone else's game. Cody also says that putting up Donny is good for everyone else. Derrick says that Brittany and Amber forming a girls alliance is more dangerous than Caleb.

Donny and Cody talk. Donny tells Cody to do what is best for Cody's game, not what everyone else wants. Donny says that if he goes up, he won't hold it against Cody, he will hold it against them. Cody said why does Donny have to go on the block when Caleb doesn't care about his game. Cody goes out and tells Frankie, Nicole, and Hayden that he is going to put up Caleb. Frankie says in DR that this is a bad move. Frankie then goes to talk to Derrick in the have not room. Amber comes in, so they leave. Derrick says that he has a matter of minutes to convince Cody to put up Donny. Cody says that he is so pissed he is in this position because of Caleb. Derrick says that Caleb will not put up the guys. Cody is upset that they want him to put up Donny, who has done nothing to deserve it.

Time for the POV ceremony. Will Cody put up Caleb who sold him out for $5000, or Donny and lose Donny's trust? Victoria takes herself off. Cody puts up Donny in Victoria's place. Donny says that he thinks Cody did it because of other people in Cody's ear. Brittany is going to try to campaign against Donny. Frankie says it sucks for Team America, but it will be fine.

Group hug for Frankie

Wednesday, July 23, 2014 -- Evening

Sympathy for Frankie
I won't be able to watch the POV show tonight, but I will have a recap of it tomorrow afternoon. Meanwhile on the live feeds, Frankie found out that his grandfather died. The family wants him to stay on the show. When Frankie came ouf of the DR with the information, the whole house (except Caleb who slept) gathered around to offer sympathy and hear stories. After a while, Frankie got a group hug. He's buried in the middle of the hug you see to the right.

Monday, July 21, 2014 -- Afternoon

HOH Show
I wasn't at home last night, so I'm just catching up on the latest Big Brother episode on my DVR.

We got to see the HOH competition. Frankie and Cody were into it. Frankie tried to get Amber into getting the HOH room. Donny said that he had to win. Victoria seems to be completely incompetent in the game, and so is Caleb. Caleb claims he has big man hands. Brittany and Jocasta seem to be working well together. Frankie and Cody then decided to put two eggs into play at all times to get caught up because they keep on hearing how good others are going. Victoria keeps on dropping eggs. Donny said that Derrick was coaching Cody and Frankie. Donny wondered where his love was. Victoria was extremely incompetent at the game, and they showed a montage of the house guests making jokes at her expense. Amber did not like that Devin controlled her game last time, and she wants HOH again. Amber and Zach had 11 eggs and were neck and neck with Frankie and Cody. Cody and Frankie just beat out Amber.
Frankie and Cody in the HOH competition
Cody said that he has been catching weird vibes from Caleb, and he doesn't have ta set target this week. Derrick wants to hold on to the numbers that they have. Zach goes to talk to Frankie, and both say they are safe this week. Brittany and Donny talk. Neither feel safe from the block. Brittany believes that she will be up on the block because she is not part of the Bomb Squad. Donny tells her to put his happy face on. Donny said that Frankie is in Team America with him, and Cody is a friend, but that means nothing.

The house guests go to see the HOH room. Frankie was glad that this picture he got had his sister, Ariana Grande as a child with skeleton makeup. Cody heard from his dad. Frankie got a letter from his sister, and he cried. Frankie cries during his letter. Zach, Cody, Derrick, Frankie, and Christine admit that Caleb and Amber are outside of the alliance. They decide that they are the five who will go all the way to the end. They call the alliance the Detonators. Derrick came up with the name. Christine says that she has gotten into two alliances because she just happened to be in the right room at the right time. She's the only girl out of the five, and she'll be the first to go.

Hayden, Zach, and Frankie talk about how Zac Efron is the man. They have a man crush on him. Donny sat there and joined them. Donny seems to barely know who Zac Efron is. Hayden likes Leonardo DiCaprio. In the DR, Frankie gets the Team America mission of getting a physical threat on the block. Frankie says that's going to be hard because Frankie is aligned with every physical threat in the house. They decided it would be Amber because she is the strongest woman. They have to get Donny to agree. Derrick tells Donny that Amber is the strongest physical threat, even though Donny tried to say it should be a guy.

Brittany talks to Frankie about how all the girls are throwing themselves at Cody, and how she is the oldest girl in the house. Brittany goes and tells Cody that Brittany told him that Cody would put her up. Cody is offended that he would make his nominations based on which girls go to his room. He calls it a high school response. Brittany is in the kitchen, and she says that she can't sleep. She says that she's over it. Brittany says that she can't deal with the fakeness and lies. Cody says that he is friends with Brittany, but he's insulted. Brittany doesn't make her case by being bitchy to Cody.

In the HOH room, Frankie is in bed with Caleb while Cody is in bed with Brittany. They had separate bedrooms, and Caleb gets pissed that Amber closes the door to the second HOH room. Cody said tells Amber that Caleb won't like it, and Amber claims that she is not interested in Caleb at all. Frankie asks Caleb how he feels about Frankie putting up Amber. Caleb thinks that Amber is trying to play him.

There are no have nots this week, and no one, but no one as Zach says, wants to sleep with Victoria. Brittany said that Victoria is a ton of work and keeps everyone awake. The problem is that Victoria inappropriately likes to cuddle people. Brittany got offended because Nicole said that it didn't bother her to sleep with Victoria. Victoria seems shocked and she's hurt that no one wants to sleep in a bed with her.

Frankie talks to Amber about going up on the block. Amber said that she doesn't want to be a pawn. Frankie is hoping to tell Amber the truth and get her to be on his side if she comes off the block. Amber asks why a guy can't go up on the block instead of a girl. Exactly! The girls in that house are really stupid.

It's time for the nominations. Cody goes first, and he picks Victoria and Brittany because of all the stuff that has gone on in the house. Frankie goes second, and he picks Jocasta and Amber because Jocasta is fierce and Amber is a strong, physical competitor. HA! Brittany doesn't like being compared to Victoria because Victoria does nothing in the game. Brittany is furious. Victoria is bummed; she thinks it's pathetic. Cody goes to talk to Victoria. She cries. Cody tells Victoria that she is an innocent bystander, and that he doesn't want her to go. Derrick and Frankie celebrate putting Amber on the block and getting $5000 to do it. Meanwhile Amber talks to Christine, and asks why Amber went up. Christine said the guys are trying to play a guys game. Amber really, really trusts Christine. Amber wants ta girls alliance to go after the guys. Brittany is going on about how pissed she is to be compared to Victoria, who is the weakest house guest. Victoria is clueless when she comes into the room to talk to Brittany.

For the Battle of the Block, that backyard is made out like a chess board and pirate ship. Brittany says that she should have taken Donny up on his offer to learn chess. The competitors have to move like a knight. Once they land on a square, that square is out of the competition. The last team with a knight standing, wins. All the girls are each in a corner. Jocasta goes first. Victoria went second. Everyone did the exact same move. As Frankie says, they are either diabolical geniuses, or they just did what the first person did. Frankie is leaning toward the latter. Me too because these girls are dumb! Brittany was trying to tell Victoria what to do. Victoria was totally clueless, as usual. Jocasta was the first person to eliminate herself. Caleb said in DR that he's sure that Amber was hoping Caleb could save her butt. Jocasta is crying and acting like a gibbering idiot. Amber makes the last move, and Victoria had no more moves to make. Jocasta stops gibbering to brag about how she whooped ass. Not! Frankie was dethroned. Cody is HOH, and Brittany and Victoria are still on the block.

POV Competition
The POV competition finished just a little bit ago. It seems from the conversation on the feeds that the competition was one where the first person out of the competition got to select from one of six boxes. One had the POV. The others have either prizes or punishments. It seems that there is a lot of controversy because Caleb competed in the POV, and he passes up the veto for a $5000 prize. Victoria wound up with the POV, and obviously, she will take herself off the block. So far, the discussion seems to be to put Donny up in her place so the others will vote out Brittany for sure. We'll have to see how things go over the next few days until the POV ceremony on Monday. Meanwhile, as you can see in this screencap, Brittany is trying to plot for her salvation with Cody. I doubt that it would work.

HOH and Battle of the Block
So the live feeds did not come back on until the HOH competition. Cody and Frankie won the competition, and then it became time to make nominations and compete in the Battle of the Block. Frankie nominated Amber and Jocasta, and Cody nominated Victoria and Brittany. It seems that Frankie and Derrick decided that Amber would be considered a strong physical threat, and her nomination would affect their alliance with the Detonators (the Bomb Squad subset). Well, Amber and Jocasta won the Battle of the Block, so that leaves Victoria and Brittany to battle for POV>

Thursday, July 17, 2014 -- Evening

See You Later, Devin
Tonight's eviction night in the Big Brother house. Julie Chen started the show by saying that volunteering to go up on the block can be dangerous. Donny said that he thought it was his duty to fight for Jocasta since she couldn't fight for herself. After the POV ceremony, Devin said that he would be a fighter because there are things that Caleb has that can be used against him. In DR, Jocasta cries and says she will do anything for Donny and hopes they are together at the end. Meanwhile Caleb keeps on putting blankets on Amber, and whispers to Hayden about the things he does for Amber and that at the end he wants to win a date with her. In the backyard, Cody and Donny talk about how Caleb wanted to go on the block. Donny said that Caleb was trying to get points with Amber. Donny says they should get Caleb out sooner than later because Caleb is a beast, and Caleb will always back Amber and do whatever she wants.

The funniest scene was Victoria going out in the backyard with a bikini, and Hayden says what's her name. He really meant it too. Then we see Amber and Cody in one of the bedrooms, and Caleb goes walking through the room to check on them. As Cody said, Caleb is always going around looking for Amber. Derrick says that Caleb is playing with his heart instead of his head. Zach says that Amber likes Amber, and Zach doesn't want to lose an alliance member because of a love triangle. On to a romance that's working: Nicole and Hayden. They snuggle together, and Hayden says that Nicole seems to be warming up to him. Nicole asks Hayden if he is a good kisser. Then Hayden starts kissing her on the neck. Victoria comes in and ruins the whole mood.

Cody and Devin are outside talking. Devin is telling Cody about his daughter because that's all Devin talks about. Devin hopes that Cody could be influenced to his view. Cody said that it's a side of Devin that Cody saw at the beginning, but that disappeared for a bit. Cody and Zach are talking about Devin and Caleb, and Zach says that he had a dream that Caleb went home. Cody and Zach both say that they want to send Caleb home. it's strange that they all talk about it, but no one wants to pull the trigger. Zach and Frankie talk in the backyard about getting rid of Caleb. Frankie then goes over to talk to Christine, then Frankie goes to Derrick to talk about the plan. Derrick wonders why Frankie thinks there is a plan to get Caleb out of the house. Derrick said that as long as Devin is in the house, he'll always be a bigger target. In DR, Frankie says that Caleb is so oblivious to what it going on around him that it will get Caleb out of the house.

As a side story, Jeff Schroeder goes to meet Donny's family. Donny's parents say they don't watch Big Brother because it's on too late and they go to sleep. And Donny's dad says that he doesn't like shows like Big Brother. Jeff shows them some clips of Donny on Big Brother. It's funny seeing Donny's family react to the show. They say that Donny doesn't give up. Donny says that he misses his brother who is handicapped, missing one arm and a disfigured arm. Donny's girlfriend looks pretty good.

Back in the BB living room, Jocasta says that she feels great. She again says that Donny giving her the veto was really nice. Zach is asked about what surprises him living with these people. Zach says he doesn't like a lot of people, and the people in the house are extremely annoying. Hayden says there is no worse part to being a have not, and asks if he can be on Survivor. Julie says that this week there will be no have nots, but to expect the unexpected. As Julie says to the audience, over the next week, they will monitor the activity trackers and make the group based on their activity levels.

Caleb is first to talk, and he thanks God. Then Caleb says both are beasts, but that's he not a liar or backstabber. Caleb said that Devin all-in-all is a good guy. Devin says that he had highs and lows, and he would do thinks differently. Devin brings up the Amber bit, and how Caleb would do anything for Amber. Devin said that he doesn't have that alliance. Devin says that Caleb is a beast, but he is a monster, and can take people with him.
Devin is evicted. Everyone wishes him good bye, and then they are all cheering in the house. Brittany gave Devin a aluminum foil heart. Devin said that his mistake was playing too hard too early. Devin said that when he was in the HOH room, he had a lot of paranoia. Devin was worried about the side moves, and thought outing the Bomb Squad would put targets on others instead of him. Devin said he thought he would have integrity, and had to change up his game. Julie asks Donny what Donny is. Julie tells Devin that Donny is a groundskeeper. Jocasta was positive. Caleb said that Caleb just made some errors. Zach said that Devin's social game was god awful. Donny wishes Devin the best of luck. Everyone was told to form teams of two. Victoria and Christine are on the first team. Caleb and Nicole are the second team. Brittany and Jocasta are the third team. Amber and Zach are team number four. Donny and Hayden are team number five. Cody and Frankie are team number six. The winning team will be the two heads of household. And yes, it is an endurance competition!

The competition is called Deviled Eggs. They have to move 12 eggs through the slots to the other side. The first team to get all 12 win. The pair are in separate cages. It's the typical handling an egg through a mesh fence. Frankie is the first to get an egg to Cody.

Team America's next challenge is to get someone who is a physical threat on the block. Good luck with that one! Amber and Zach, and Cody and Frankie have one egg in the slots. Big Brother starts to dump ashes on the house guests.

POV Show
Quad feeds in the BB house The show started with the usual recap of events. Nicole's frog costume is revealed to everyone. Christine said that if you blur your eyes a little bit, it looks like the frog is throwing up Nicole. Hayden says she's a cute litte frog, and he has to hit on a cute little frog. Derrick is glad that he is HOH, and that they have a chance to backdoor Devin. Even Devin realizes that he will be given the backdoor. Frankie congratulates Donny and Amber because they won. As Amber said, she and Donny were communicating.

Meanwhile, Jocasta is the worse for wear, and she is upchucking in the bathroom. Caleb helped her to the bathroom. Everyone was concerned about Jocasta feeling better. The heat and the lack of drinking really did her in, and she did seem as sick as a dog. That's why she did not play in the POV competition.

Amber and Caleb are talking in the backyard, and Amber does not like that Caleb seems to expect something from her about throwing the competition. Meanwhile, Amber asked Caleb to not throw the competition. Amber says in DR that she isnot changing her mind about dating him. Amber does not like him, and Caleb is really pushing her to date him, and go to the end party with him.

Meanwhile, all the girls are talking to Nicole, and how much they like the frog. Hayden said that usually the princess kisses the frog, but with Nicole looking so adorable, he may need to kiss her. Back to Cody giving Amber a back rub in the living room. Cody says that Caleb is giving him death looks because she is with Cody. Amber tries to explain that she is not interested in Caleb. In DR, Cody admits that it is awkward. Cody said that it looked as if Caleb overheard the conversation with Amber. It can cause problems. Caleb heads up to the HOH room. As Caleb said in DR, Cody is trying to put his hands on Caleb's queen. Caleb and Cody go outside the HOH room to play chess. Cody laughs at Caleb because he noticed that Amber was around Cody a lot. Cody says with Caleb's ego, Caleb will go after Cody because of Amber trying to distance herself from Caleb. Cody is afraid that Caleb will be after him.

Derrick tells Caleb that Caleb cannot be accused of throwing the comp because then people won't trust the group. Derrick asks Cody about Devin getting the POV. Cody says that this will be the number one shot to get rid of a potential problem: Caleb.

Back to Team America. Donny calls Nicole out of the backyard, and he tells Nicole that Zach and Amanda from BB 15 are cousins. He said Paola told him. Nicole gots to talk to Christine and repeats the rumor that Zach is Amanda's cousin. Derrick tells Caleb knowing that Caleb will tell Amber. Done. Derrick tells Zach that Donny told him that Paola said Zach is Amanda's cousin. Zach then goes downstairs to spread the story. Nicole buys it. Frankie's role is the mole, and he hears Zach talking about it. Victoria claims she knew it because Zach and Amanda are Jewish. Everyone does seem to think Zach and Amanda lookalike.

Donny takes Jocasta to bed, and it seems that she is so sick from heat exhaustion. Time to pick players for the competition. Jocasta is not playing because she is ill. Derrick and Caleb will pull chips; Derrick pulling for Jocasta. Derrick pulls Christine. Caleb pulls Devin. Zach is pissed that Devin is playing. Then Derrick pulls Donny for Jocasta. Cody is the host. Devin says that he is going to animal it because he is fighting for his life. Caleb said that Devin better bring his A game. Derrick says that Donny is all over the place. Derrick talks to Donny about trying to get Devin out. Donny says in DR that he won't share his game with Derrick since Derrick didn't share Derrick's game plan with him. Donny asks Derrick what Derrick thinks Donny will do. Donny says that he does not know anything.

Derrick and Caleb put on their game faces, including eye black. Frankie puts John 3:16 on Caleb, and puts Derrick's wife and daughter's initials on Derrick's cheeks. Time for the competition. The backyard is setup like a casino. Hayden says the house wants Devin out, and in Vegas, the house always wins. The competition is a tumbling dice match. They start out in pairs. Cody spins a wheel, and gets a number. They have to come off the block in the cube and then come back with the number on top of the dice that matches the number on the wheel. The order selected is Christine, Derrick, Donny and Caleb. Christine wants to face off against Devin. The first number is four. It's harder than ou think because you have to get the right number on top with the last move. Devin won the first round. Derrick is up next. He chooses Devin. The number is two. Derrick says that the more times he goes, the better he gets. Derrick got distracted being in the dice. Derrick is standing on the two, and doesn't seem to realize it. Everyone is getting frustrated. Devin won the second round. Donny is up next.

Zach says that he will punch himself in the eye if Devin wins. Donny picked Devin. Donny wants to win every competition that he can. Donny wants to make his family proud. Devin still doesn't trust Donny. Donny wants a three, four, or five. The number is a six. Donny has to figure it out as he goes. Nicole says she is sweating. Devin is going hard and fast. Donny got the six first, and everyone on the side lines starts screaming and crying. Devin is out. Devin said that was the saddest moment of the game for Devin. Now it's down to Caleb versus Donny. The number is two. Donny wants to take out both of the big male competitors. Caleb said his mom used to say that he wasn't the brightest crayon in the box, but at least he's in the box. Donny got the two first, and Donny won the POV. Caleb says he's still on the block, but he should be okay if his alliance steps up. Devin can only hope and pray for a miracle. Derrick hopes that Donny uses the veto on Jocasta so he does not blow up Derrick's and Donny's game.

Donny goes into the house and goes to Jocasta and says Jocasta's not going home this week. Jocasta starts sobbing. Frankie and Brittany are there and crying too. Donny says that maybe Jocasta can rest now. As Donny said "a friend in need is a friend indeed." Then Cody goes in and does a semi strip, to which Frankie says "Christmas time early!" Devin goes off by himself. He has his daughter's name on his wrist, and it makes him feel that he let his daughter down. Donny said that the house should know what he is going to do with the veto, but that house is so paranoid.

At the veto meeting, Donny says that he decided to use the veto to save Jocasta. As he said, she was too sick to compete, and he just wants her to get better. Jocasta sobs again. Derrick names Devin as the replacement nominee. Derrick said that his job as HOH is done this week. Caleb said that he would feel stupid if he leaves the house. Devin said that he won't be surprised to be there after the vote. Jocasta sobs hysterically about how she is so used to giving and now she gets to receive. Donny is really a nice guy.

Sunday, July 13, 2014 -- Evening

HOH and Battle of the Block Show
House guests use the photo booth The show started post HOH. Derrick hopes the boys in blue are proud of him. Nicole did not want to be HOH this week. She felt that she wasn't on anyone's radar, and now she's anxious about being on others' radar. Zach is happy becaue the Zach Attack is back, and Devin could be the next one out the door. Devin is hoping that he put some targets on others backs so that he is safe. Jocasta, wrapped up in her hoodie, asked why he is telling them stuff. Brittany can't understand how anyone could make an alliance in the first two days. We then get a rehash of Devin running around and telling everyone about the Bomb Squad.

Derrick and Devin talk about the nominations. Derrick isn't dumb, and as he said, there's no way he is putting Devin on the block and give him two chances to take himself off. Derrick and Caleb talk about trying to get out Devin. Derrick explains why Devin wants to go on the block now. Caleb is stupid and didn't get it at first. Christine talk with Nicole and Hayden because those are the ones she wants to go the farthest with in the game. Christine explains to Nicole that she felt pressured into joining the Bomb Squad. Christine tries to reassure Nicole. Nicole is shocked and hurt, but says at this point in the game, she has to trust Christine.

Time for the HOH room reveal. Hayden loves that Nicole was a basketball player (baller), and says she can ball on him anytime. Derrick has to remind himself that he is there for his family, even though his daughter is growing as he's away. Derrick's daughter is a cute little baby. Zach and Cody cry as Derrick reads his letter from his wife. Derrick says that it's good that he gets to work with Nicole, because Derrick is a super fan, and he hasn't talked game with Nicole. Nicole said that she was worried about confiding in Derrick. They go through the people they do not want to nominate. Derrick said that Nicole can put up Amber because Amber put up Nicole. Derrick explains how Nicole should put up Amber, and Derrick will put up Caleb because that would be a way to get him to play for Amber. They just can't come up with a fourth name.

Hayden and Nicole flirt on the hammock. Nicole does not know what "offic" means when Hayden said they should make it offic for official. Hayden really likes Nicole, but she is not going to make out in the game. Good girl! Derrick tells Caleb that Nicole is putting up Amber. Derrick said that we all want to work together, so Derrick is not going to threaten Nicole. Derrick is a genius, and gets Caleb to ask to be nominated to save Amber. Derrick tells Caleb that he can come across like a knight in shining armor or a jerk. Caleb goes to talk to Amber about how Devin is the target. Caleb tells Amber that Nicole wants to put up Amber because Amber put up Nicole. Caleb tells Amber that he nominated to go up so Derrick remains HOH. Caleb will be on the block. Caleb says that he will do it for her. Amber doesn't want to say "Caleb save me" because she hates Caleb. Nicole tells Donny that she is going to put up Amber. Nicole tells Donny that Derrick is going to put up Caleb. That's shocking to Donny. Donny talks about putting up another girl like Christine. Donny says that Nicole should not have to vote her buddy out, but is her buddy her buddy.

Amber overhears Donny telling people that he heard that Caleb is going to go up and throw the competition. Amber runs up to tell Nicole. Nicole tells Christine that she can't trust Donny because he's causing trouble by talking and that Donny told Nicole to put up Christine.

Time for Derrick and Nicole to make nominations. Nicole gets to go first, and she picks Amber and Donny. Derrick goes second and picks Caleb and Jocasta. Nicole makes her nominations to the group. Jocasta rolls her eyes at being nominated. Derrick says that he wants Jocasta to lose her floater status. Derrick also says that Caleb asked to be nominated. Devin is upset that he didn't get nominated. Duh! Donny is surprised that Nicole put him up. Devin is complaining that the backdoor is the only door. Nicole is sorry that she nominated Donny. Nicole talks to Hayden, and Hayden said that Donny is awesome, but that Donny's head is not always in the game. Zach and Frankie are in HOH talking about Devin with Derrick when Devin comes into the HOH. Devin is hoping that Derrick will keep him in the game. Derrick said that he is going to do what is best for Derrick's game. Derrick says that Devin is definitely his target.

Victoria asks Frankie about his sister, and talks about how she looks. Victoria won't let Frankie go about his sister. But Frankie is determined to keep things about his sister on the down low. Derrick gets Team America's first challenge, to get three people in the house to spread a rumor that someone in the house is related to a former BB house guest. Derrick tells Frankie and Donny. Frankie says that they should say that Paola told Donny before she left that Zach was related to Amanda from last season. Donny thinks they should start with people who will spread the rumor.

Nicole and Donny talk, and Nicole cries about the nomination. Donny tells her that it's okay. Donny starts crying because Nicole is crying. Donny tells her is is just a game, and that he doesn't hold it against her. Nicole told him that others told her that Donny was staying that Caleb would throw the competition. Donny asked Nicole if she asked him not to tell. Nicole thinks about it and admits that she did not. Donny and Nicole agree to work together.

It's time for the Battle of the Block. NIcole thinks that Derrick looks like Harry Potter on steroids. The backyard is setup like Hogwarts. One of the pair has to get puzzle pieces, hand it to the other, and that person goes up by a cable when the runner runs back to create the puzzle. Brittany is the hostess. Donny and Caleb are the ones running with the pieces while Amber and Jocasta put up the pieces. Meanwhile, Donny is giving Amber how to put the puzzle together. Donny loves all sorts of puzzles, and he seems pretty good. Amber is an idiot. Hayden said that Donny and Amber are communicating, but Caleb and Jocasta are not. Donny tells Amber that they are putting together a duck. Caleb and Jocasta look close to it. Caleb siad that Jocasta seems disoriented. Amber and Donny win the Battle, but Jocasta looks out of it. Amber is hugging Donny.

Derrick said that he doesn't want it getting around that Caleb threw the competition. Jocasta said that she wants to throw up, and then she almost does right there. Nicole is not HOH, and Nicole "vanishes." She must have been sent to the diary room to put on her frog costume. We'll find out what happens in the next show.

Saturday, July 12, 2014 -- Evening

Nicole as a frog
POV Competition
Devin got to play in the POV competition, but Jocasta did not. It seems that she was sick from getting dehydrated, so Big Brother did not let her play in the competition. That would suck if Jocasta were in threat of leaving. However, she's really safe, and Donny said that if he won, he would take her off the block. Well, guess who won? Donny did! The guy may come across like Forest Gump, but he has been really good with competitions. Meanwhile, Nicole been stuck in a frog outfit. I'm not sure how long she has to wear it, but it's a punishment from her nominations winning the Battle of the Block.

Friday, July 11, 2014 -- Evening

Battle of the Block
Nicole and Derrick made their nominations last night. Nicole put up Donny and Amber, and Derrick put up Caleb and Jocasta. The plan is to basically put up Devin and get rid of him. So, of course, he could not be nominated straight up. Now they may be able to backdoor him. Derrick was the one who made all the decisions with the nominations, telling Nicole to put up Amber while he put up Caleb. The thought process Derrick has was that Caleb would battle to save his princess and would stay on the block, keeping Derrick as HOH. Well, Nicole went along with Derrick's plan, and a rather lengthy Battle of the Block just finished. Donny and Amber won, so Derrick is still HOH and Caleb and Jocasta are still on the block. Now to see who wins the POV.

Thursday, July 10, 2014 -- Evening

HOH Practice
Practising for HOH The house guests got a croquet mallet, ball, and obstacle course last night to practice for the HOH. They were allowed outside last night at 9:00 PM BB time (PST). They only had an hour, and everyone was to get three chances to get in a shot. It will be interesting to see how the practice helps them. I know in the past, sometimes the folks who were good in practice sucked when it got to the competition, just because things got tweaked. I hope that the next week is explosive entertainment!
Eviction/HOH Show
I was so looking forward to this show because there was so much drama in the BB house this week. The show started with the fallout from the veto meeting. Brittany asks to say something really fast, and Zach wants to go second. Brittany outed Paola by saying that Paola threw the Battle of the Block competition. Paola said that they all know how Devin is and that she would rather throw her head in the toilet bowl. Donny loved having a front row seat to the drama. Paola said that she did not throw the competition. Then Devin said she did because he offered her the veto. Paola called Devin a liar and said that his daughter was going to be watching Devin lie. Then Zach comes up. Zach sayd that there is not an ounce of truth in Devin's body. Zach said that he wasn't sure who would vote for him, but Devin chances with every blow of the wind. Devin smiles like a puppet. and doesn't say anything. Zach apologized for outing others in the alliance, but he had to out Devin. Cody was really pissed at Devin and said that Devin putting up Zach showed how Devin can't be trusted. Paola doesn't know what will happen. Devin goes upstairs to watch the secret HOH camera. Frankie was upset that Zach outed people. Caleb said he was going to gun for Zach for throwing him under the bus. Frankie is super pissed at Zach because it made everyone think that Frankie can't be trusted. Frankie said it was just terrible what Zach did to him. Frankie said that Zach threw him under the bus. Zach realizes that he took it too far, and he tried to apologize, but it was too late. Frankie said in DR that Zach totally ruined his game.

Paola asked Zach if people would vote for him or her. Zach said that people would vote for him. Zach called Paola a liar. Zach keeps on saying that Paola threw the competition. Paola tried to drag Derrick into it, but Derrick refuses. Derrick says in DR that Zach is making it hard on himself. Devin said that Zach is no longer in the Bomb Squad. Devin tells Caleb that Hayden would be the perfect person to take Zach's spot in the Bomb Squad. Hayden goes to the HOH room, and Devin tells Hayden everything. Hayden turns to Frankie says that this is so fast. But as Hayden says, he is feeling forced into it, and he has no choice. Hayden says in DR that he say yes to the alliance, and then do everything to blow it up.

Derrick tries to get Zach to keep a level head. As Derrick said if he can keep Devin and Zach in the house, they will go after each other, and he will be safe. Derrick tells Zach that he has to go to others and kiss their ass to get them to keep him. Derrick, Frankie, and Donny talk about who to vote for. Donny said that Paola is his best friend in there, but he would vote her out. Donny assures Frankie that he and Derrick have Frankie's back more than Devin. Derrick then talks to Caleb. Caleb says that if they keep Paola, they can use her. Derrick says that Paola would flop. Derrick says that Zach is after Devin, and that Zach is better in the house than Paola. Derrick goes to Frankie and says that Caleb would vote for Zach. Then Frankie goes up to Devin and tells Devin that Zach is staying. Frankie figures that he can tell Devin and use it to his advantage. Devin tells Frankie that Devin is not in the Bomb Squad anymore. Devin keeps on referring to his daughter. Devin tells Frankie that he wants to take every person out one by one.

After commercial break, it's back to the living room. Jocasta used the word crazy to describe the veto meeting. Frankie called it insanity. Devin is asked how to rate his HOH reign. He gave it a 4.5 out of 10. Time for the final speech from Paola and Zach. Paola said that she feels like a winner if she stays or goes. Paola said that Devin has five different personalities that all suck. Paola says that she will never throw anyone under the bus. Zach says he's blessed and thanks his family for how he is, and thanks everyone and says that they should keep him safe because he will go for Devin. Voting time! The votes are:
Paola's out with a vote of 10-2. Paola hugs Donny, and then starts hugging the others as she leaves. The house guests gather to see her photo go black and white. Julie outed Paola about throwing the comp because she admitted it in DR. Time for the messages. Zach called Paola a huge liar. Jocasta said that she loves Paola. Devin said that he's so sorry, and that he sorry he didn't keep his word. Donny said that Paola made him laugh and comforted him. Donny said that Paola was his best friend in the house. Paola said that she and Donny don't have anything in common, and he's 42. Who would think they would be best friends?

Time for the HOH competition. The backyard is setup like an ocean floor. One at a time, they get one shot to hit a polo ball down the field. The two with the highest score will be HOH. it you don't get into a slot, you get zero. This is how they did:
So Derrick and Nicole are the two new HOHs. As they were celebrating in the yard, Julie mentioned that all the house guests have fitness trackers, and we can track them to see how active they are. Somehow she mentions that it may affect the game.

Derrick wants a letter from his wife and daughter. Nicole answered for him. She wanted to get a letter from home and is very excited. Donny said that it's really exciting to be a part of the show.

Devin all alone
Devin Blows up and Big Brother Show Recap
It seems that every time I go to sleep, the BB house breaks out into real turmoil. Devin AGAIN outed the Bomb Squad, thinking this will be to the detriment of everyone else. However, it seems that he really hurt himself, and he appears to be everyone's target next week, while the rest of the Bomb Squad might become secondary targets. The one thing you don't want to do is make alliances with people in the BB house so quickly. Devin was crazy from the get go, and now his alliance members are suffering from it.

The show started with day 15, and the post Battle of the Block fall out. Devin said that he considers himself the puppet master because he has been pulling so many strings. Meanwhile in the storage room, Nicole, Hayden, and Christine celebrate. Amber hopes that she is safe since she and Devin are part of the Bomb Squad. Brittany tells Paola that she thinks she (Brittany) is going home. However, Brittany plans to fight to stay in the house. Devin apologizes to Hayden, and Paola, who is listening in, claims that she could have dominated in the competition. Devin claims that he is keeping Hayden safe and gave Hayden a creepy man hug (as Hayden called it.) Hayden does not want to be associated with Devin and his creepy evil genius plan. Hayden asks Nicole for a kiss, but she says no. Zach says there are two parts to the Bomb Squad: the supporters of Devin (idiots) and the ones who think that Devin is insane. The last are Zach, Cody, Christine, and Derrick. Zach says that they need to backdoor Devin. Amber, Christine, and Caleb are at the hammock, and Caleb is flirting with Amber. It is so obvious that Caleb is in love with Amber. Devin wants to break up Amber and Caleb. Caleb does not like that Devin won't allow Amber to talk. Derrick and Christine try to talk Amber and Caleb into keeping Brittany. Caleb says that he would protect Amber over Devin any day. It seems that Devin has been treating Amber like dirt and not letting her talk.

Caleb tells Devin that more people want Paola gone than Brittany. Devin starts to go psycho saying that Brittany needs to go home. Devin claims that Caleb is saying this because Caleb talks to Brittany. Caleb said that he was just bringing something to Devin's attention, and all that Devin does is go crazy. Meanwhile, Caleb tries to tell Devin that the girls are afraid of talking to him. Frankie says that he's watching this clash of the not so Titans, and all that is going to happen is that the alliance is going to break up. Devin goes to the HOH room to rant to himself about Caleb. Then Devin goes back out to tell Caleb that Caleb is wrong and there is no more alliance.

CBS then announced that Frankie and Derrick are the other two members of Team America. They will get $5000 for each mission that Team America carries out. They all have to meet at the weight bench at 9:30 that night and use bald eagle and apple pie in a sentence to find out who the other two members are. Derrick knows as soon as he sees Donny come outside that he's a member of Team America. As Frankie says, they have the brains, the beard, and the beauty. Time to choose for the POV competition. Devin chooses Zach. Brittany picks Derrick, and Paola picks Amber. Devin doesn't know if Derrick and Zach will stay loyal to the Bomb Squad. Caleb goes up to the HOH room to apologize to Devin. Devin said that it set him off that Caleb said something about how Devin talks to women. Caleb said that people are telling him that they want to get rid of the floater, Paola. Devin thinks that Caleb is full of crap. Caleb then Devin that Devin that everyone is saying that they need to get rid of Devin. Caleb goes down and collects people. Derrick says "another house meeting, sponsored by Devin." Devin says that they have to keep the floaters and get rid of the strong. Devin says that he guaranteed Paola safety. Amber and Christine would not talk. Zach says that Paola is the biggest floater, and Zach would rather keep Christine. No one else said anything. Devin asked who wants to get rid of him. Zach said that he probably opened his mouth too soon and put a target on his back. Zach then tells Devin that he wanted to get rid of Devin, but that Zach would be loyal.

Time for the veto competition, and Devin turns to Paola and says that if he wins, he will use the veto on her. They go into the backyard that is all setup like a outer space. The six contestants come out looking astronauts. Devin comments in DR about how the planets are named after famous couples. He wants a planet named after him, "Devtopia." The house guests have to balance ten planets on a mobile without having them touch the ground. Zach wanted to win and take the power out of Devin's hands. Devin wants to win, and Derrick says that if he wins, he is keeping the nominations the same, and sending Paola home. Paola is totally hopeless. Paola couldn't get any ball to stay on the mobile, and everyone laughs at her. Zach is rooting for Derrick, and so is Christine. Derrick starts hurrying because he sees that Devin is close. However, Devin wins POV. Brittany has to figure out a way to stay in the house. Paola says that Devin promised to take her off the block, but you can every tell because Devin is like the devil.

Zach goes up to the HOH room to do damage control. Devin asks Zach who he would vote out: Paola or Brittany. Devin tells Zach that he doesn't trust him. Zach realizes that he's screwed. Zach talks to Frankie in the storage room. Frankie asks Zach if he's surprised that Devin is upset with him. Frankie tells Zach the problem is that Zach told the truth. Zach should lie. Frankie, in DR, says that Zach doesn't know how to play the game and might blow up Frankie's game. Frankie says you can't reason with an unstable person (Devin). Brittany goes up to Devin and talks to him about how people want her to stay, and she also brings up the fact that like Devin, she is a parent. Brittany says that it's not worth it to miss everything for her kids to go out so early. Devin says that touches his heart. Devin asks Brittany if she would be loyal to him for the rest of the game. Brittany said that he has her word. Brittany says in DR that she knows it's wrong, but she has to agree with Devin to stay. Devin then tells Brittany that he got Paola to throw the Battle of the Block. Devin goes to the living room to talk to Zach. Zach tells Devin that he admitted to saying things that he didn't mean. Devin says he doesn't want to trust Zach. Zach says if you want to put me up, he can't stop him. Devin claims it wasn't on his mind, but if Zach wants to go home, Devin is putting Zach up. What??? Devin is crazy!

Devin admits that he promised to use the veto on both Paola and Brittany, and that putting up Zach will go against Devin's alliance. Zach says in DR that if Devin puts him on the block, he's taking Devin down. Paola does a stupid move by just posing and pouting when she got the chance to talk about herself. Brittany says that her target is Paola. Devin says he put up Brittany for personal reasons, and he refuses to let a single mother sit on the block. Then Devin puts Zach up in Brittany's place. Then we got a tease that all hell broke loose post veto meeting, but they cut away. I guess it will start tomorrow's show.

Zach tells all
BB Drama
Big drama in the BB house. There was a breakdown in the Bomb Squad and the Frankie and Zach friendship. Devin used the POV today, and he took Brittany off the block to put Zach up in his place. Frankie and Devin think that this is a good movie for their game. I'm not quite sure what went down, but once Devin gets it into his head that he can't trust you, you are out. The thing is that the others will probably keep the floater, Paola, and Zach will be gone this week. After the ceremony, Zach blew up, and now, he's running around the house telling everyone about the Bomb Squad. I think that one of my favorites in the house is Derrick, the cop. I hope that this doesn't blow up his game too.

The house guests in the BB house
Updates on Feeds
I haven't been watching the feeds as much as I would like in the past week, but Devin is creating a ton of tension in the house. His nominees, Nicole and Hayden, beat out Amber's pair of Paola and Brittany. Then Devin won POV. He's been going around like a crazy person, threatening to out his alliance and giving people who tried to form an alliance the stink eye. All the while that he does this, he proclaims that he is doing things for his daughter. He makes me want to puke. I can only hope that he is evicted soon, although, I guess nut cases like Devin provide the entertainment.
Nomination Show
Tonight's show started right after the revelation that Cody was disqualified from the HOH competition. Cody's heart dropped. Cody's food definitely hit the ground. Devin then started talking about his kid again. "I'm here for my daughter." As Victoria said, it is one week of hell, and Cody hopes that Devin does not go power crazy. Caleb and Frankie celebrate with Devin, but Frankie thinks Devin does crazy shit, and he really doesn't trust Devin. Meanwhile Zach tried to keep Cody's head in the game.

Time for the HOH room. Amber just wanted to see pics of her mom and sister. Devin, of course, wanted to see his daughter. Puke! Caleb looks teary-eyed as Amber reads her letter, and he wants to take her home to his parents. Devin cries because he was thinking about his daughter. So he decides that he has to tell Donny that he didn't trust him. Devin tells Donny that he thought Donny was a threat. And then Devin tells Donny that Devin was responsible for Donny going on the block. Cody is pretending to sleep there, and he hears Devin spill the beans. Donny says in DR that he won't trust Devin. Then Devin feels that he has to tell the whole house. Zach says that whenever anyone calls a house meeting it's bad. Then Devin talks about his daughter (PUKE!). Devin tells everyone that he forced Caleb to nominate Donny. Brittany then wonders if Devin is telling the truth because she thought the nominations were for people who fell off first.

Then Devin asks to talk Caleb who tells Devin that others said that Devin threw him under the bus. As Caleb said, straight up it made him look like a liar. When Devin asks Frankie, Frankie said that yes, Devin made everyone think Caleb was lying. Frankie tries to explain that it is a game, and that he has to watch what he says. Devin thinks that Brittany misconstrued what he said and was after him. Devin thinks that Brittany is the most paranoid paranoid person in the house. No Devin, that would be you!

Hayden and Nicole chat outside, and he admits that he would take Nicole on a date. Nicole admits that she would go out with him. Nicole tells Christine that they should align with him. Christine says that us weirdos need to stick together. When Hayden goes into the storage room,and they are there, Nicole and Christine say they should have a three person alliance. Hayden says that he will save Nicole if she goes on the block. Christine says she is either a genius for being in two alliances or going to get destroyed soon.

Caleb talks to Devin about wanting to cuddle someone. Caleb gets teary-eyed. Devin and Amber meet with the Bomb Squad about to talk about nominations. Devin wants to only put up girls, but Amber isn't happy with that. Derrick says that Hayden would be okay with being nominated. Derrick also says that Nicole is a floater. Caleb says that Jocasta is a floater.

Devin goes around telling people they have to clean the house. Brittany does not like that Devin is telling her to clean house when she has three kids. Devin gets to nominate first. I think that's the problem with the two HOHs discussing nominations together. Devin nominated Paola and Brittany. Amber nominated Hayden and Nicole. Devin goes to Nicole and tells her to go to the HOH room, and he will explain how she is not going home.

Brittany tells Poola that it's not Amber, but Devin who is trying to control things. She also tells Paola that Nicole and Hayden were picked to win the Battle. Up in HOH, Devin is telling Hayden and Nicole that Brittany is his target. Meanwhile, the person who nominated them sits there saying nothing. Hayden says in DR, "duh, you love me so much that you put me up?" Devin tells them and Paola is going to thrown the competition to keep them on the block. What a douche!

Zach says he is not gay, but he feels like he has a boyfriend relationship with Frankie. Frankie says in DR that he does not know what he has in Zach, but it's good for now. Zach does seem to cuddle with Frankie all the time, and Zach says that Frankie is one of the greatest people he ever met.

Devin then talks with Paola about throwing the competition so Brittany goes out. Devin acts like he has all the power in the house, and that he will keep Paola safe. Devin tells Paola that Brittany is the target.

While some of the house guests were sleeping, they were called out into the back yard. Paola doesn't know what she is going to do, but Paola is so stupid that she couldn't win if she were the only person competing. Derrick is the host, and they will see pics of the house guests in various situations. Whoever rings in with the right answer wins a point. The house guests are stupid and can't see worth a darn. If you get it wrong, the other team gets a point. Brittany got the first answer wrong, and the other team got a point. Brittany got the first answer wrong (woo instead of moo) was given beer goggles. Paola got the second answer right (cat under the piano), and gave Hayden a hangover cure. Brittany got the next one wrong (BB Brewer). Brittany had to do a cannon ball. Paola got the next answer wrong, and got a beer helmet. So Nicole and Hayden got their points from Brittany and Paola getting things wrong. Brittany got the next one right, and gave Hayden a swirly (putting his head in a toilet). Hayden got the next question right. So Devin stays as HOH.

First Eviction Night
It's time for the first eviction of the BB season. The big question is whether Joey can save herself. However, it seems that everyone in the house wants her to be gone. Caleb felt that Joey threatening him by saying he made his biggest mistake nominating her was a mistake on Joey's part. Paola plans on laying low so Joey goes home, which is a great strategy. Joey hopes that since she was born on February 7, that 7 is her lucky number, and that she will stay in the house. Brittany likes Joey. Nicole isn't so sure about keeping Joey, but is considering it since Joey doesn't know how to play the game. Devin goes around trying to make sure that everyone votes out Joey. Victoria does not like that Devin is trying to tell everyone to vote out Joey. He wants it to be unanimous vote. Frankie doesn't care if it is unanimous as long as Joey goes home. Devin is threatening other people if they vote for Joey at all. Christine tries to let Joey know that she is the house target. Joey tries to talk to Zach about voting for her. Zach says he wants to vote with the house, and Caleb and Devin are dictating the vote. Joey is going to try to do something, but realizes that the whole house is scared of Devin and Caleb. I don't know why they are afraid of them. Caleb can't be HOH next week. Joey dresses up like a guy, and calls herself Alex. Hayden notices that she has on his clothes. Joey is being funny, but it really doesn't seem to be sinking in. Nicole thinks that the Alex thing is ridiculous, but that Joey makes a good point about sticking together as girls because the boys are running the house. Paola loves the Alex routine because it means Paola is safe. Victoria agrees that everyone should be voting the way they want to vote, not the way the house wants.

We then saw a segment on how Caleb loves Amber. All he does is talk about her, obsessively. Frankie says that the whole Caleb obsession is so eighth grade. Caleb tells Amber that she is looking at him a lot. This is news to Amber. She didn't realize that Caleb was obsessively adoring her. Amber says that she doesn't feel the same for Caleb, and that she doesn't know if she ever will. Caleb, however, is not going to give up.

Time for the live vote. Joey goes first and says that she believes that she is a strong person and should be kept in the house. Paola thanks Joey for saying she sucks at competitions. Paola wants to share her positive energy and still has a lot of fight in her. The votes are: Unfortunately, its is a unanimous vote. Joey tells everyone that she loves them, and she heads out the door. Frankie hugs Brittany, who appears to be the only person crying. Joey's talk with Julie Chen was painfully boring. Basically, we found out that it's hard in the BB house because people are quiet and form cliques. Joey wanted the others to have gonads. Then we had the good bye videos. Frankie tells her that they were built from the same cloth. Caleb tells Joey that she was blown up by the Bomb Squad.

The HOH competition is next, and before the commercial, we found out that the teams would be split into men versus women. The comp is called Greek Week. They will both compete in the same comp. When Julie says go, the girls have to cross a balance beam, and then move six kegs to the opposite side. If they fall off, they are out of the competition. The first to move all six keys wins. The guys are on a balcony, and they get to throw frisbees at the girls. Amber is in the early lead, followed by Brittany and Christine. Most had three kegs down before Paola got one. Brittany dropped a keg, and she was out. Amber got all six over, and she was the first HOH. Time for the males to compete.

the men start out, and Frankie flies across the beam. Derrick is out because he drops his keg. Hayden takes the early lead. The guys are really close though. Hayden got his sixth keg, but then he fell on the return to the buzzer and was out. Cody won. However, Julei informed us before the commercial break that there may have been a foul.

Donny was voted as a member of Team America, and finds out that each mission the team completes gathers the team $5000. Donny was emotional and very appreciative.

The review of the tape showed that Cody fouled, and his foot hit the floor before he pressed his button. That made Devin the second HOH. I really hate Devin, so that's not a good thing.

POV Competition
I did a quick watch of the two BB episodes that I missed, and the two things that I should comment on is that Caleb is a beast. He does not throw a competition, and he is a fierce physical competitor. Devin, on the other hand, is bat-shit crazy. Without talking to the others in his six person Bomb Squad alliance, he told Amber and Christine about the alliance, and invited them into it. Idiot! So now it's time for tonight's episode.

After the usual recap, we saw the celebration after the Battle of the Block competition. Brittany and Victoria celebrated, and Frankie was worried about his back, even though Caleb says he has Frankie's back. Donny thought it stunk that Pao-Pao (Paola) sucked so much in the competition. Pao-Pao admitted that she lost the competition for them. Donny started to cry because it touched his heart to see the young kids caring for his 42-year-old self. Paola said that outside the house she is selfish, but she wants to take are of Donny.

Meanwhile in the HOH room, Caleb, Frankie, and Devin celebrate. Caleb said that Donny was a competitor and a beast in the Battle of the Block competition. It seems Donny was really good at pouring liquid while on his swing. Devin seems really maniac, and says that they should all be in it together. Meanwhile, Devin goes to Donny who is crying. Donny says that he is emotional because of the people in the house who care for him. Donny says it touches his heart. Donny said that they aren't emotional at home, and Donny wants Devin to tell the others why he is crying. Devin has no plans to do it.

Nicole believes that there is ghost in the fire room, and she manages to convince Christine of it too. Christine wants to take Nicole to the final two, but doesn't think that she can if Nicole won't let her drink. Donny talks about having a tall drink of water socks. Caleb tells the others in the HOH room that Donny is ex-military because arm boots rubbed the hair off his legs. Devin thinks Donny is a Navy Seal, and convinced Caleb of that. Frankie thinks it's hysterical that Devin is so sure that Donny is a super military guy.

At night, Devin asks Donny if he is being honest. Devin thinks that Donny is not what he says he is. Devin wants Donny to come clean. Devin tells Donny that he thought Donny was in the military. Donny thinks it's strange because Donny was never in the military. Donny thought Devin trusted him. Donny thought that Devin made him feel like he did something wrong. Donny says that he will continue to trust Devin.

The house guests come into the house, and see slop on the table. Caleb gets to name the four people who will be the Have Nots. Hayden and Joey volunteered. Then Cody and Brittany did too. The new Have Not room is a cold room with icicle beds and an emergency blanket.

Meanwhile, Joey is not pleased with her all girl alliance. Jocasta says that you can't start an all girl alliance with seven other guys. Amber says that there isn't an all girl alliance because she's in it. Amber wants to get rid of Joey because Joey wants to form the all girl alliance. Joey does't realize how girls will get far if they don't stick together. Derrick's cop sixth sense tells him that the girls in the bathroom are up to something. It must be an all girls alliance. Devin, Derrick, can Caleb decide to go after the person starting the alliance. Caleb asks Amber about it, and tries to figure out who was trying to form it. Caleb plans to target Joey because of her plan.

Joey feels like an outsider, and she decides to out the fact that she tried to start an all girls alliance. Joey realizes that Devin is acting weird around her. She goes to talk to him, and admits that she tried to start an all girls alliance. Why she feels she has to tell Devin and apologize, I don't understand.

Time for the POV selection. Caleb picks Victoria. Paola picks Zach, and Donny picks Cody. Caleb thinks there's no possible way that Donny, Paola, or Zach can win POV. Paola cries because she thinks that no one will use the POV on her or Donny. Jocasta said that her destiny is in her hands. Jocasta prays over Paola, and Paola starts to laugh. Paola just feels intimidated by the others. The competition is called Miami Lice. The contestants have to jump into the pool, go under the brush, and find lice, which have letters on them. It's the usual find a letter take it back, and spell the longest word in the shortest time. Paola wants to turn it into beast mode. Victoria says that Miami is not about lice or bugs. Caleb wants to get rid of Donny. As Caleb said, he graduated high school, and he knows how to spell. Donny says that he's not smart. Zach starts hiding letters to make it easy for him to spell words. Caleb wanted to spell "specialize" but there is no p. Donny is going really slow. Christine said that Donny was going so slow, that he didn't know he was fighting for his life. Donny just wanted to be calm, cool, and collected without soap bubble in his eyes. Zach thinks he is going to win because he run in first. Then Donny buzzed in. Only thirty seconds remain, and the others buzz in. Zach spelled "warning," and Frankie made fun of Zach for not adding an S. Cody spells "competively," which is misspelled. Caleb tried to spell specialize, but he could not find a p. Christine said that she wondered why the Bomb Squad wanted a little girl like her, and then she realized, they just wanted someone with a brain. Good one! Victoria tried to spell pharmacist, but there was no c. Paola to spell calculator, but spelled "caltoru." Donny is last, and must correctly spell an eight letter word.

Donny spells "splinters," which is a correctly spelled nine letter word. Donny won the POV. As Donny says, "fear the beard." Caleb has to pick a replacement. Donny said that the competition wore him out. As Donny said, they may think he's a dumbo, but he can spell splinters. Caleb gives cudos to Donny, and says they have to find another target. Caleb tells Joey that she is targeted because it is way to early to form an alliance. Joey thinks she is on Caleb's good side.

As Donny calls them in for the video meeting, it's obvious that Joey will go up. Donny uses the POV on himself. Joey goes up in Donny's place. Joey said that she will try whatever she can to stay in the house. Paola, on the other hand, feels safe.

Fast Forward Catchup!
I was not able to watch the Thursday or Sunday episodes of Big Brother because I was out of town for an even filled wedding. I am still trying to catch up on a week's worth of life that was put on hold for the wedding, and I doubt that I will get around to those two episodes before tomorrow's episode. You can watch the episodes online from CBS. In the meantime, i've updated my Big Brother 16 stats page. I will have a recap of tomorrow's show, and more comments about things that I see on the live feeds.

Wednesday, June 25, 2014 -- Evening

Welcome Back Big Brother
Big Brother started this evening. I'm going to be out of town for the next two episodes, but I'll try to post some updates about the show.

Tonight's show started with quick video clips of eight of the house guests, focusing first on Paola. Then came Donny, who looks like he came out of Duck Dynasty, including the accent and camouflage. He has a typical Donny Day that starts with a pop tart. Next was Cody without his shirt. Hot! Frankie, who says he's the brother of one of the most famous people on Earth, Ariana Grande, who I never heard of. Frankie talks about his 1.2 million YouTube followers. Amber wears a bikini and talks about being athletic and being a gun fan. Next came Nicole, from Ubly. She's obviously the Jordan-alike. I think the BB people try to get people like former house guests. Next was Devin, baseball player. He thinks he looks like the Rock. I say not. Joey from Seattle with great short blue hair. She's also extremely liberal. Frankie brought pink high heedls. Nicole brought three months of eye lashes. Nicole is super scared of ghosts, and needs a cuddle partner at night. Paola wants a guy with a six-pack. Cody isn't sure about a showmance. Julie Chen tells the house guests that it will not be as they might think it will be because there are twists. Joey, Amber, Donny, and Cody are the first four into the house. Donny says that he is like a fish out of water. In his diary room entries, they play hick country music. Donny reminds me of Gomer Pyle. Nicole, Devin, Amber, and Frankie go in. They all start talking in high pitched voices.

As an aside, Julie Chen looked pregnant in her loose, flowing orange dress. I think she has been trying to get pregnant again. Julie at least looks bigger from the side.

Meanwhile back on the show, all the women and Frankie go on and on about how hot Cody is. Joey thinks that she and Frankie are soul mates. Amber thinks that Devin is eye candy. Devin thinks Joey is his type, smoking hot, and a 10. Donny like Nicole. Donny seems very Forest Gump, and can't remember Nicole's name. Devin realizes that they have to circle the wagons, and plan ahead.

Devin realizes that the original eight need to stick together and target the other group. They call it the Crazy Eight Alliance. The guys take off their shirts, and they do sit-ups, lead by Frankie. Well, except for Donny who doesn't do crunches. Donny says that he has watched every season and every episode. Devin wants a side alliance with Donny. That's not something that anyone would expect. They are the Double Ds. Paola doesn't want another Brigade; she wants girl power. Paola talks to the girls about a girl winning this year. Joey says that the guys know that the culture turns girls against each others. The girls agree to an alliance. They are El Cuatro. Nicole doesn't know what that means.

The house guests are called into the living room. Julie tells them that one of the eight will be the first HOH. The HOH will get to nominate two people, but they won't be completely safe. As Julie says, this is going to be a twisted summer. HOH does not mean you are safe, which means that the HOH from the second group of eight can nominate the other HOH. Paola and Cody are talking. Paola says she can get any guy she wants outside the house, but she wants Cody. Cody mocks Paola because she has to count the year difference between her 27 and his 23. Cody says he likes someone who works out and has a good personality. She should really be into her body in his opinion.

Time for the first HOH of the summer. The house guests have to get into their bathing gear. It's an endurance, with the house guests on a log, holding onto a rope with a kite. The last person still holding onto a kite wins the HOH. Donny is the oldest, and he wants to prove he is competitive. Paola is the first down. She seems like a real loser when it comes to competition. Joey has no balance. Devin is an athlete who works out six days a week, and he says that the competition was painful. Joey was the second one down. After she fell, sun screen was sprayed on them. Nicole was third out. Amber wants them to bring it on. Paola just fixates on licking Cody's stomach. Donny has a good save.

The log stops, then it starts going in the other direction. Donny is out next. Devin falls shortly after him. As Donny says, "dog gone it" because one of them should win. Cody is off next, and it comes down to Amber and Frankie, and then Amber did a horrible job of throwing the competition. She obviously drops the rope so she can somehow stay safe. Nicole seems really confused. Frankie doesn't know what it means to be a problem since he is HOH. All eight agree that they have Frankie's back.

Julei tells them that a second group of eight will come into the house, and one of them will be an HOH. However, only one HOH will be left standing by the end of the week. The house guests have no idea what will happen. Meanwhile, the general public got to vote for someone to play on Team America. Team America will have three members, and we will find out tomorrow night who the first member of Team America is.

Tomorrow's show will show us the second HOH competition, and the final details of the "shocking" game twists. There will be a new competition shown on the Sunday show.

Big Brother House Guests
The Big Brother 16 house guests have been announced, and it will NOT be an all-star season. All the house guests are new, and there are tons of BB websites that have interviews with them. One of my favorite is Big Brother Gossip. The CBS Big Brother page also has photos, interviews, and bios. So check them out, and pick your favorites.

Wednesday, June 18, 2014 -- Afternoon

The Big Brother House
My favorite summertime show, Big Brother starts next Wednesday. There have been lots of rumors about it, and so far, the strongest one is that it will be an All-Star show. Will people who have already been on Big Brother return with family members in a blood versus water setup? We'll find out later today. CBS did release a first look at the house, and they went with an outdoorsy, tree-house theme. The Hollywood Reporter has photos of the house. I can't wait for the show to start!
Two Heads of Household
The twist this year, as revealed by Julie Chen on today's The Talk is that there will be two heads of household this year. That means that if you win HOH, you won't necessarily be safe. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
