Diary Room: Adam Poch Gets Us Ready For Week 3

As I predicted last week, this past week in the Big Brother 16 house was one of the crazier ones in Big Brother history. I do not think we have seen a POV meeting blow up like that since the Veto Roulette in Season 10.

Also – as most of us predicted, the Bomb Squad exploded from within. This is why Alliances that big just do not work. Too many Chiefs and not enough Indians. Devin’s reign of terror ended with Paola being evicted. He must have told her 1000 times she was going to be safe, he would save her with Veto – and then went against his word and went against his alliance. Everything Zach said to Devin & about him was true. Devin said he would never jeopardize his integrity for any amount of money & did just that. When Zach called Devin out at the VZeto meeting and gave him a chance to explain himself – Devin’s response was “Good luck bro.” He had to know Zach was right!

So now looking forward to the new week. I am happy for Derrick to win HoH and see a picture of his wife & daughter (hey Devin, did you know Derrick has a daughter?). And Nicole was a surprise getting the top spot – just proving once again that there is a little bit of luck in the BB Game. They both agree that Devin is their target this week – and both want to backdoor him. But this could blow up in their faces if somehow he gets picked to play & win POV. Nicole is still a bit bitter over the Bomb Squad – and her best friend Christine was part if it, knew she was going up as a “safety nominee” and did not warn her. Will this come back at some point and fracture their friendship / alliance? We’ll see.

Both HoH’s went right to work to figure out how to play this out in their favor – and both are very smart players. They were running different scenarios, and two names being thrown around as possible nominees include Donny, Jocasta, because they “voted against the house” to keep their friend Paola. Another scenario includes Nicole putting up Amber as a payback for Amber putting her up last week. And Caleb “volunteering” to go up as one of Derrick’s nominees so he can “throw the BotB” and come out looking like her knight in shining armor.

But with so many things having to fall into place, one wrong move, one slip of the tongue (didnt everyone get pissed at Paola for throwing a challenge?) and one of these Superfan HoH’s could come out with more blood on their hands than they want at this point in the game. Derrick is doing an amazing job getting people to do what he wants – without them becoming suspicious of him. I do not think he will get a case of HoHitis, he’s got to much to lose.

A quick little rant here – why why why can’t BB use the HoH competition to also decide who the Have Not’s will be. Last night was simple – lowest 4 scores become Have Not’s. The volunteering / HoH picking is ridiculous to do in the first place. You should have to fight for your food and comfort. I understand why they don’t have a competition at this point in the game, the CBS Sunday shows are too packed with the nominations & BotB (which is also why we probably wont see any endurance HoH’s til this twist is over).

OK – that’s it for me for now. Hopefully #OperationBackdoorDevin works because I like both of the HoH’s – and anything other than him going home could be detrimental to their games.
