If this was Survivor they would have mixed the tribes up by now since the balance of power has been skewed to one side of Big Brother 16.

After another unanimous vote, Brittany was sent out the door. The CBS show did not give us the false edit like they did last week, Brit was a goner no matter how hard she tried to campaign. Instead we got a fluff piece with Nicole & Hayden’s slow moving showmance. Only part of that I found entertaining was the little kid saying she did not like Hayden “trying to make sex with Nicole.”

The segment with BB telling Frankie about his grandfather’s passing was very sad. I just hoped that it would not impact the game. As we saw later, it did. Derrick sacrificed himself, knowing he would be a Have Not if he did not win HoH. Would he have done that had they not know about Frankie’s grandfather? I think so, but don’t think he would have made it so obvious.

Derrick’s game of influencing others is starting to build comparisons to other great manipulators in BB history. With Frankie as 1 HoH & only Zach & Christine left to battle it out for the other HoH, he would be safe again.

Zach stunned us all earlier in the show by not being one of the laziest HGs. I guess bouncing around & flapping his arms when talking burns calories. (Weight loss tips by Zach). He was not done surprising us as he won his first HoH.

So now we have the other showmance of the season, Zankie, sharing the HoH. The Internet went crazy expecting this to be a boring week as the Detonators would be in control again. Well Hurricane Zach proved right away this would not be the case. All night & into the wee hours Zach’s brain was all over the place. And so was his mouth. He was stirring up so much drama by asking people who he should nominate & then telling everyone different things.

When word starting getting around just about everyone was a target and pissed off at him. Even one of his closest allies Cody was having a meltdown & starting to turn even more against Zach. This is playing perfectly into Team America’s task to have a fight go down at the nomination ceremony or Veto meeting. It will not take much to get Zach amped up and call someone out. Looks like Zach plans to nominate Christine and call her the Jenncity of the season. But like everything else Zach says & does, it can change in a moments notice.

At last check it sounded like Amber & Caleb are the true targets for the week. But how Zankie plans on making this happen is still to be seen. Plus after the ensuing fallout of the nomination ceremony the house may finally be divided and no one will be safe.

I am still hopeful that the 2 HoH twist will be done soon. The idea of someone being HoH at the beginning of the week and sent packing at the end of the week has not panned out. But this could be the week if Frankie stays HoH & Zach ruffles too many feathers. Although like most other wishes by fans this season, anything shocking will probably be replaced by safe gameplay. (Who else is missing Devin’s erratic behavior?)

By the time you read this everything above will probably change. So don’t hold me responsible if I am completely off base. Be sure to check Big Brother Network often for updates, or just lock yourself in a room and keep up on your own with the live feeds. Fingers crossed this will be a great week! Catch me Tuesday for my Bacon/Tofu rankings.
