Big Brother 16: Derrick Moves To Shut Out Caleb From Final 3

Last night on the Big Brother Feeds we saw Caleb Reynolds start to position his pieces for a run at the Final Two by working on Cody Calafiore that they should both be looking to sit beside each other and not an “easy win” like taking Derrick Levasseur.

It didn’t take long for Caleb’s boasting and plans to take Cody to F2 to work their way back to Derrick through Victoria. Once alerted to the situation Derrick quickly went to work to do what many of us have expected for awhile and as he’s hinted to Cody along the way. Time to get rid of Caleb.

Flashback to 1:53AM BBT 9/13 Cams 3/4 as Derrick and Cody settle in for a discussion while Caleb is in the DR. Derrick might be trying to sniff out hints of betrayal by Cody regarding Caleb’s offer when he brings up talk of how they can make sure the two of them are F2. Cody doesn’t try to hide anything and opens up about his conversation with Caleb.

Cody tells Derrick that Caleb said he wouldn’t want to go to the end with someone like Derrick “because I think I would smoke them,” says Cody about Caleb’s claims. This is accurate from Cody’s earlier talk.

Derrick says he expects Caleb will tell them both what they want to hear. I’m surprised that at this point Derrick doesn’t mention Caleb having a talk with him around 10:35PM BBT the same night that he (Caleb) thinks a F2 will be the best plan for each of them.

Derrick tells Cody that his fear is they keep Caleb until F3 and then Caleb wins two of the last three final HoH comps and is able to split them up and the Hitmen don’t make it to the F2 together. Derrick says if he’s going to lose then he wants it to be to Cody, not Caleb.

Cody says he would feel terrible betraying Caleb and he worries that if they keep Victoria and a freak accident happens she could win in the F3 HoH comps. Really, Cody?

Derrick assures Cody that their odds of controlling the F2 are far better if they go against Victoria than Caleb. Victoria would have to win two consecutive comps to give her the power to choose. Considering her record, that seems highly unlikely when compared to odds of Caleb doing it.

They continue to discuss what Caleb might do. Cody worries that if Caleb really thinks beating Derrick is such a lock then maybe Caleb would take Derrick. Derrick says if Caleb really wanted to beat the best then Caleb would be trying to keep Frankie for a F2 pairing. Hmm, not a bad argument.

It comes back to Cody saying he feels “terrible crossing him,” but Derrick counters with asking Cody how bad he’d feel if they keep Caleb and he takes Derrick over Cody. Cody slowly admits he knows Victoria would never win in F3 and eventually relents saying he’ll do whatever they need to do to get to F2.

Do you think the Hitmen will make it to the Final Two? I’d say there’s just one Veto comp in between them and making it to the end together. It’s been an impressive season for them if they can pull it off, but they can’t relax just yet.
