‘Big Brother 16’ Counting The Votes In Week 7| August 12, 2014 at 12:00 PM EDT
We’ve made it so far in the Big Brother 16 season that just six votes are in play this week. That also means a tie-breaker for Christine as HoH is possible, but will it come to that? Let’s run through the votes as they sit today.
A week ago we looked at a near lock for Zach’s eviction which proves anything can happen at any time. While it may look like one player is doomed to a Jury arrival, anything is possible as we’re still two days away from the next eviction vote.
Over the weekend the plan to send Frankie out the door fell apart when he won Battle of the Block, so the guys needed a new plan. They were thrown for another loop when Zach, the next most probable target, won the Veto.
Christine admitted up front that she’d use Victoria as a renom should it come to that. Derrick didn’t want Victoria going up on the block because he soundly controls her game. So instead Nicole became the preferred renom option, but could they really get Christine to renom one of the final female HGs? Turns out that wasn’t an issue.
Christine was easily convinced to renom Nicole and she’s now the main target. She’ll need four votes to avoid a tie-breaker because if it goes to Christine I still think she’ll send her to Jury.
Nicole’s easiest source of support, and perhaps her only one left, is Donny but he’s sitting on the block next to her. So there goes that. Another possibility could be Victoria, but when Nicole went to her last night there wasn’t much hope in what Victoria told her.
Nicole hoped if she could get Cody and Derrick to swing their support to her then maybe Victoria would join them. Nicole’s thinking here is that Christine would vote to keep her, but we’ve already addressed that.
Victoria told Nicole it was unlikely to get Derrick or Cody to vote to keep her. Later when Victoria discussed the situation with Derrick he again confirmed that Nicole would be going home.
Considering Derrick doesn’t especially trust Donny I’m surprised there wasn’t a shift to evict him instead. Donny is on to Derrick’s role in the house, but maybe without anyone to support his theories it doesn’t matter how much Donny wants Derrick gone if Derrick can control the votes.
Caleb, Zach, and Frankie have also agreed to send Nicole packing and there’s no big advantage for them to change that plan. Expect them to stick with sending her out the door.
Unless there’s a major revelation Nicole will be sent to Jury this week, but with this returning player twist in the mix we could see her heading back to the house. Not sure what she could do differently this time though if that were to happen.
