“Operation Brittany” is in effect this week as the Big Brother 16 Houseguests have resumed their mission to blindside this week’s target. No easy feat considering their plan was already exposed, but that’s not going to stop them.

There will be nine votes on Big Brother this week which means no chance of a tie and Frankie Grande’s role is over for the week. So which nominee can avoid racking up five votes against her? Let’s count them up.

The Brittany “operation” is a reference to the HGs tricking the target in to believing she is safe for the week. This seems to be part sport and a larger part of trying to keep the target from blowing anything up as they wait to get to eviction night. Right now, Amber is that target.

Yesterday when Amber was renominated she realized she was in real trouble and so did Caleb. Caleb went around the house scrambling to gather votes to keep Amber safety after realizing he had put her in the way of danger to soothe his ego. Nothing like a little time to wash away reality though.

By this morning Caleb was back to asserting he was in control as the HGs were telling them overnight that they were going to vote to keep Amber. I think Amber is a little more cautious about her chances as she told Caleb the guys had possibly formed a new alliance without. “I run the alliance,” said Caleb. “I. Run. It,” he added for emphasis.

At this point the only person I see voting to keep Amber is Caleb in which case we’d get a 8-1 eviction vote with only Caleb casting a vote against Jocasta.

As always though, we are still a long ways away from Thursday night’s vote and much can change. Can Amber pull another four votes in to keep her around? I’m doubtful, but you never know.

What do you think will happen on Thursday night for Big Brother 16? Will Amber or Jocasta be evicted? Cast your vote in our poll now!
