Big Brother 16, Episode #13

Hey Readers!

You would think that with Devin out of the House that the mood would be calmer, but it has only gotten crazier! This is all thanks to the House’s resident cowboy, Caleb.  His affections toward Amber have him going a little bonkers, causing others to be on edge.  And with no other huge targets in the House anymore, Caleb and his antics are sticking out like a sore thumb, which is helping the game of the Floaters.  Will Caleb’s actions cause the House to get him out early?  Read below to see what happened.

An Overlooked Threat in the House

Amber is on the war path as of late.  She was upset because she thought she had been put on the Block as a pawn too many times, and she has become sick and tired of being used this way.  Amber confessed that she was gunning for the boys, and they had better look out for her.
With this most recent BOTB victory (as Jacosta was of no help to her in this one), Amber has been a formidable competitor this season.  This should be something that the boys should be looking out for, but they can’t seem to look past her, uh, exterior.

Brittany Feeling Bummed Out

Brittany was dishing with Zach how disappointed she was about being stuck on the Block for another week.  She felt shunned by the House and by Cody for putting her on the Block. Zach asked her how bad did she want to stay in the House, and she said she would fight to stay.  Zach confessing the Diary Room that she would have to win the PoV to make her wish come true.

Cody Heating Things Up, Literally and Figuratively

Cody began warming up Amber’s cold hands under the eagle eyes of Cowboy Caleb and other on-lookers in the HoH Room. Caleb did not like how Home Skillet (Cody) was moving in on Ole Girl (Amber) right in front of him. Caleb left the room, and he was talking to Zach about how upset Caleb was at what Cody was doing, and about lying about not wanting to be with Amber.  He was also angry about Amber not “showing her appreciation” to Caleb for “saving her” from the Block last week. Caleb keeps forgetting he put her there, without asking her, then made himself her knight in shining armor! Zach just shook his head and told Caleb what he wanted to hear, then skulked off to inform Cody of what he heard.

Finding Company in Misery

Brittany and Caleb were commiserating over their plights in the House.  Caleb heard what Brittany had to say about how she didn’t deserve to  be on the Block, and he found himself agreeing with what she was saying.  Caleb told her about the Amber and Cody situation, and she said that the only reason why she was still on the Block was because she didn’t want to be lying on Cody’s lap to make him happy. Brittany confessed in the Diary Room that having Caleb on her side may be a good thing because everyone in the House was intimidated by him.

Veto Comp Players Picks Meeting

Here are the players for this week’s PoV Comp:

Cody (HoH), Brittany (Nominee), Victoria (Nominee), Zach (Cody’s pick),  HouseGuest’s Choice (Caleb – Brittany’s pick), and Nicole (Victoria’s pick). 

Cody Smells Something Fishy

Cody was shocked that Brittany chose Caleb as her HouseGuest’s Choice for the PoV.  He took Caleb aside to figure out what was going on. Caleb told him that he was talking with Brittany, and that he believed that Cody was making a mistake with his target this week. After hearing this, Cody could no longer trust where Caleb’s head was anymore.

PoV Comp – BB CUP
In honour of the FIFA World Cup, BB 16 decided to have one of their own, BB style. This PoV was another Comp where it was played in a series of rounds. Each riund, the players had to use a “kicker” to aim a soccer ball into a goal that was divided up into different numbered areas. The player with the lowest score would be eliminated,and would have to take a “prize” from the trophy table . Players that were eliminated in later rounds were able to swap their prize for one that a previous loser chose. The winner would be the person that ended up with the golden power of Veto.

This is how this Comp panned out:
1st Eliminated – Cody. Prize – Veto.

2nd Eliminated – Brittany. Prize – Penalty Kicks (must receive 10 self-inflicted kicks in the butt whenever the signal goes off for 24 hrs). She traded with Cody for the Veto.

3rd Eliminated – Zach. Prize – Trip to Germany.  He kept this prize.

4th Eliminated – Nicole. Prize – Goal Oriented (must score 2400 soccer goals in 24 hrs. If not complete the punishment, then cannot take part in the next Veto Comp). Nicole traded this prize with Brittany for the Veto.

5th Eliminated – Victoria. Prize $5 000. She traded prize with Nicole for the Veto.

Last Player Standing – Caleb. Prize – Germatard (a German-themed unitard that must be worn for a week). He traded it with Nicole for the $5 000.

Victoria won the PoV

Punishments Dealt Out

Nicole came out of the Diary Room in her second fun outfit in two weeks. This time, she was in her cute Germatard! She did look cute in it, and, once again, the house made her feel good about her punishment.  The House was also supportive of Brittany and Cody of their punishments.  Whenever they could, the HouseGuests would go out to the BB Backyard and cheer Brittany on as she scored goal after goal.  Her feet became sore and hurt, but she was a trooper, not giving up until the task was complete.  Everyone also watched Cody as he used this “kicker” to give himself 10 kicks in the butt for a day.  There were times that the buzzer didn’t go off and he gave himself the punishment because he thought he heard the buzzer go off! The house had to tell him a few times that he was hearing things.

Donny Talking Strategy

Not wanting to act as a pawn in this game, Donny finally started talking strategy with Zach and Hayden.  He was thinking that Cody could back-door Caleb this week.  His reasoning: because Caleb would become more cocky the longer he stayed in the House. Everyone understood what Donny was talking about.

Playing With Your Pride or Playing With Your Head

Cody was furious with Caleb for taking the $5 000.  He was ranting and raving about how he was going to put Caleb on the Block as Victoria’s replacement.  Frankie and Zach were frantically trying to get Cody to change his mind about putting Caleb up on the Block.  Frankie told Cody not to loose an ally (Caleb) over something like this in the game. Later on, Derrick tried reasoning with Cody, telling him that they could get Caleb soon, but Brittany needed to go now because she was gunning for them, while Caleb on had his sights set on getting Amber to want to be with him.  Cody disagreed with them, saying that Caleb couldn’t stay because he treated Cody like a punk for taking the money over the Veto.  Derrick said that is not looking long-term in the game (which is true), but Cody also has a point. He shouldn’t let people step all over him in the game, either.

Donny went to speak with Cody about what was happening.  Donny said he didn’t want to be used as a pawn to get rid of Brittany, and that Cody should be playing his game, not the game that others want him to play.  Donny Cody also said that he would not hold it against Cody if up as a replacement Nominee because he knew there were other people behind this decision. Cody liked what Donny had to say, and  told him, shaking his hand, that he wouldn’t be put up on the Block.

Veto Meeting

Victoria swiftly used the PoV to take herself off the Block.  With a heavy heart, Cody had to break his gentleman’s agreement and put Donny on the Block.  Donny vowed to get to the bottom of who was responsible for putting his safety in the game in harm’s way.  Brittany said she had into game mode in order to stay in the House.

Wow, Readers! My second pick is in real danger of leaving the House this week.  It doesn’t look good for Brittany since more people in the house would rather see Donny stay over her.  It also does not look good for the solidarity of Team America.  When Donny finds out that it was his fellow members that fought Cody to put him on the Block as a pawn, I am not sure what he will think about wanting to be a part of a team that wanted him on the Block, no matter how “safe” we was.  Will Brittany go home this week?  Will Donny find out it was the remainder of Team America that put him on the Block?  Who will be next week’s HoHs?  Come on back to see the results of this week’s Eviction and more on my blog.

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode # 18 – Boy, Have the Tables Turned!

Hiya Readers!

It was another crazy episode of BB 15!  So much drama, verbal cat fights, and the luck of some House Guests changed in the blink of an eye.  As well, a relationship looked as though it was ready to crumble before our eyes!  Oh, and there was a PoV Competition, too.  What happened to who, and where is this all going, you ask? Read on and it’ll begin to make sense!

After the Nomination Ceremony, Amanda, Judd, McCrae and Andy were in one of the BB Rooms discussing who could potentially be the MVP.  Yes, Amanda was still on this from last week since she was put up by America, yet none of the House Guests have stepped up and claimed responsibility for this choice.  She was pulling a “Jessie” (whining, complaining like a child) about being the third nominee last week, and worrying about the same thing happening this week.  She didn’t understand why America would pick her if this was indeed true.  She asked, “What did I do wrong?”  Oh, Amanda!  When you see what you did wrong, you’ll understand.

Amanda then found her way to the HoH Room only to find Jessie sitting next to her McCrae.  The Green-Eyed Monster came out of Amanda, and she all but demanded McCrae to sit by her, as if he was her possession and he was expected to jump when she wanted him to.  McCrae stood his ground (good for you, McCrae!), and stayed where he was.  Amanda got so mad, she got up and stormed out of the room in a big huff.

At bedtime, Amanda gave McCrae the cold shoulder for his actions.  McCrae asked why she was treating him this way.  Amanda told him she was not going to be competing for his attention.  McCrae said he was not having any of this nonsense.  The next day, Amanda was showering, and McCrae asked if she was still mad at her.  She said she was.  He told her she was wrong for being so mad at him.  While McCrae was in deep thought, Amanda was badgering him about their relationship, and got even more upset when he wasn’t responding to her questions.  McCrae then confessed in the Diary Room that he was beginning to think about exiting this relationship because it reminded him of ones he had had in the past.  He also had to think about what this would do to his game-play.  If they split, he felt Amanda would target him and get him out of the House.

At the MVP Nomination and Veto Players Meeting, America’s pick for the third nominee was revealed.  Yay!!!! It was Amanda, again!  Good work, America!  Maybe this enrage Amanda even more and will throw off her game during the Veto Competition. The last two players this week were Spencer and Judd.  GinaMarie chose Aaryn as this week’s host.

After the Meeting, Amanda had a new idea about who the MVP was in the House.  She was beginning to think it was Judd!  Really!  Well, her reasoning was that she felt Judd was acting weird and shady.  She didn’t even trust him when he went up to her and told her he was going  to pretend to fight for Jessie and really win the Veto for her.

GinaMarie and Aaryn thought that the MVP was stupid for putting Amanda up.  They felt that Amanda was in good hands.  Amanda joined the ladies in the HoH Room.  Amanda asked GinaMarie if she would use the Veto on her if she won. Aaryn got so upset at Amanda’s question that she stormed out of the room.  A lot of people are doing that this season.  Anyway, Aaryn confessed that Amanda was being selfish for asking this of GinaMarie.  Aaryn was afraid of being put up as a replacement nominee if Jessie or Spencer win the PoV.  Why would you think this, Aaryn?  GinaMarie is your girl!  Why would she put you up?

McCrae, doing damage control for Amanda, told GinaMarie in the HoH Room to keep the nominations the same if she won the PoV.  He felt that Amanda wouldn’t be leaving this week.  Amanda joined the conversation, saying she must find out who the MVP was to figure out why she was chosen as the third nominee.  I know, she’s beginning to sound like a broken record.

McCrae told Amanda when they were alone to chill out because she was freaking everyone out and annoying them.  Amanda took offense to McCrae’s “harsh” words, saying he wasn’t helping her.  McCrae told her she was ruffling too many feathers around the House.  With Judd in the room, McCrae told Amanda she also had to think about GinaMarie’s situation in the game right now, and GinaMarie was looking out of Aaryn.  Amanda told McCrae to stop worrying about Aaryn and start thinking about her and her situation.  If McCrae could last through all of this, he and Amanda really can get through anything and have a good life together.  McCrae, you’re a good man to still be with Amanda right now in the game.   Hopefully, McCrae is not using her as a shield so the target on his back isn’t as big as Amanda’s.

Frog Darts was the name of this week’s Veto Competition.  In each round, the contestants had to toss a frog onto a lily pad with the highest number possible.  The player with the lowest score in each round was eliminated.  They then ad to pick a prize.  The most recent eliminated player had the option of trading their prize for one another previously eliminated player held.  The player that held the Veto at the end of the game won the Power of Veto. This is how the competition played out:

1st eliminated: GinaMarie – got the Veto

2nd eliminated: Amanda – got The Cone of Shame.  For this punishment, the recipient has to wear a cone that dogs have to wear to prevent them from biting themselves.  The winner of this item has to wear it 48 hours.  Amanda traded with GinaMarie for the Veto.

At this point in the competition, Candice was telling Judd about how Amanda and Aaryn thought he was shady.  This started a verbal cat fight between the two ladies.

3rd eliminated: Candice – got a trip to the Bahamas.  Candice traded with Amanda for the  Veto.

The verbal war of words continued between Amanda and Candice.  Candice wanted Amanda to stop talking trash about her.  In the Diary Room, McCrae wished Amanda would shut up and stop the blow-ups because the target was growing ever bigger on bot of their backs.

4th eliminated: Spencer – 50 Shades of Orange.  This punishment made its recipient have to enjoy getting a spray tan in the BB Backyard every time a bell sounded for 24 hours.  Spencer traded this punishment with a delighted Amanda for the trip to the Bahamas.

5th eliminated: Jessie – $5 000.  She traded this prize with Candice for the Veto.

Winner of competition: Judd – Won the punishment of the Clownatard,  The recipient had to wear the Clownatard for 48 hours.  Judd traded with Candice for $5 000, and Jessie becomes the permanent winner of the Veto.

Even after the competition was over, Amanda just won’t stop arguing with Candice!  Amanda’s behaviour was beginning to really bother the other House Guests.  Helen said that Amanda was rubbing people the wrong way with all of her out-bursts and her attitude.  Candice was happy everyone was seeing this side of Amanda.  She was hoping the House Guests saw Amanda for who she was, and that this influenced how they voted.

Back in the House, McCrae and Amanda were talking about her need to chill out.  Amanda didn’t understand why everyone was getting so upset with her.  McCrae just advised her to try and keep her mouth shut so she didn’t come off as looking stupid.

Aaryn saw that Candice was looking too calm and comfortable after what happened.  Aaryn was watching as Candice and Elissa were in the BB Kitchen laughing and having fun.  Aaryn didn’t like this and wanted to keep Candice on the path to Eviction.  Candice, on the other hand, wanted to keep this momentum going by being happy and really “owning” the Clownatard instead of making it seem as though the punishment was a real punishment.

While Amanda, Candice and GinaMarie are all having fun with their punishments, Helen was taking this time to go to work and make deals with GinaMarie to ensure Elissa’s safety so Elissa doesn’t become the replacement nominee for Jessie.  Aaryn wants Elissa’s butt up on the block because of the bad blood between them.

At the Veto Meeting, as predicted, Jessie removed herself from the block.  This forces GinaMarie to replace Jessie with another House Guest.  The lucky House Guest was Spencer!

Yes, Readers, it was one hell of an episode to watch!  Jessie thought she was on the outs, while Amanda thought she was sitting pretty.  Yeah, the tables have definitely turned around for these ladies quickly.  Amanda really has to calm down, and learn how to pick er battles now.  Who knows what will happen to her down the line in the BB House.  Who will be the House Guests to be evicted from the BB House?  Who will be the next HoH to rule the roost?  Don’t forget that the next episode will be a Double Eviction Night!  I love these nights on the show.  Find out what happened by popping back in to my blog!

Until my next post, Readers!
