Big Brother 16: Derrick Works To Convince Cody Of Double Eviction Targets| September 4, 2014 at 11:00 AM EST
Big Brother Houseguest Derrick Levasseur has been hard at work this week to make sure everyone is on the same page for the upcoming Double Eviction. His page, that is. But there may be one wrinkle in his plan and it’s coming from his closet ally, Cody Calafiore.
Derrick wants Christine out. He’s got Caleb and Frankie on board with voting her out, but the hold out is Cody. Cody thinks he has Christine in his pocket the way Derrick has Victoria in his so Cody doesn’t want to throw that away and it’s going to take some convincing.
Jump to 10:30PM BBT 9/3 as Derrick talks with Caleb and Cody. Derrick is pushing the plan to target Christine this round and then Frankie after that so that would leave the three guys and Victoria. Derrick says they could then celebrate for making it to the F3. Heh. Derrick won’t cut Victoria at F4.
Cody isn’t so sure about going for Christine over Frankie. Derrick points out if Frankie wins HoH and they get Christine out then Frankie can’t compete in the next HoH and they could go for him then. Cody protests saying he’s more worried about Frankie being there next week to win HoH and the Veto then putting up two of the guys next to each other. Derrick still has work to do.
Move along to 12:09AM BBT 9/4. Cody comes to Derrick and flat out tells him “I can’t go after Christine over Frankie tomorrow. No chance.” Derrick tells him that’s his call and he’ll support him. Derrick promises Cody that Frankie has told him he’d go after Christine, not them (Cody/Derrick). Cody thinks that could be a lie.
Cody points out that Caleb is fighting to keep Frankie in the house and should be a concern for them as well. Derrick suggests Caleb will vote out Frankie, but Cody counters that Caleb would only do that in a BD scenario on Thursday night. Cody says Caleb believes he (Caleb) can beat Frankie in a F2 so he doesn’t want to get rid of him. Still more work to be done, Derrick.
Back at it, Derrick is again trying to convince Cody to go after Christine. They’re talking again at 3:28AM BBT 9/4. Cody says if he goes after Christine and she stays then she’d be coming after him. (Well the same would go for Frankie, so?) Derrick says that with Cody’s “gift of gab” (?) he could smooth things over with Christine should she stay. She’ll cross to the other side if he makes that move, says Cody.
Cody has a new plan. He says he could put up Frankie with Victoria and then if Frankie comes down Cody would put up Christine. Then Derrick and Caleb, who would be in on Cody’s plan, would have to act like Cody betrayed them all. Cody could go up as decoy in subsequent nominations against Victoria and then Caleb/Derrick could vote her out. Yikes. This is Cody’s own idea.
Derrick says “Caleb does not have the mental capacity” to handle that plan. He points out that Caleb divulged their talk about BD’ing Frankie to Frankie of all things! Derrick pushes back saying Christine is the easier target that they need to go after first with Frankie as their back-up. It’s the same plan we’ve been hearing for days from Derrick and Cody gives the same uninterested replies.
Cody just isn’t going for this and it all boils down to perceived control. “I have her ear more than I think you have Frankie’s ear,” says Cody to Derrick. And that’s where things really stand in all this.
I do not see Cody going for Derrick’s plan. Derrick wants Christine out because she isn’t part of his master plan. Cody wants to keep her because she’s part of his plan. It’ll all depend on who gets HoH tonight and while Derrick will likely push again on Thursday, don’t look for Cody to capitulate on this.
What do you think is the smarter plan for the Hitmen? Would getting rid of Frankie or Christine most help their game and move them closer to the finale?
