Big Brother Houseguests are preparing for the upcoming Double Eviction this week and while they don’t know for sure, Derrick is feeling especially confident about its arrival and has been working hard to grease the tracks.

On Tuesday Derrick made his rounds in the house talking with the expected F6 Houseguests about best next steps for “their” game while pushing his angle and working to convince them of what needed to be done.

With Nicole as the anticipated eviction there will be five players left to compete in the first HoH battle of the night. Christine, Cody, Derrick, Frankie, and Victoria will all have a shot to win and Derrick wants to make sure each of them are pointed in the “right” direction.

Talking with Caleb and Frankie yesterday Derrick was sure to mention to both of them how secure of a supporting vote from Victoria would be for them and how foolish it’d be for them to evict her over someone more uncertain, like say, Christine.

In a follow up discussion later on Tuesday, Flashback to 3:07PM BBT, Derrick is sitting with Caleb explaining how much better a F4 of the guys plus Victoria would be for their game. What an easy week they’d have in that situation, suggests Derrick. Frankie joins them and all discuss the noms pairing should be Christine and Victoria with Christine being evicted.

Meanwhile inside you’ve got Christine and Cody talking down about Frankie. Christine is actually crying over worries that she’s been tied to Frankie and the guys are plotting without. Both say they want to get Frankie on the block and send him home before Victoria leaves. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Christine, should she pull off the HoH win, put up Frankie alongside Victoria.

Derrick sits down with Christine much later in the night. Flashback to 11:35PM BBT for their talk. Christine asks if Derrick would put up Victoria. He says he has to, but then adds that “as far as going after [Victoria], it might be a waste, ya know.” Christine says she’s been thinking about the money vs their F5. “You don’t have to convince me,” says Derrick in regards to sending Frankie home over Victoria and breaking up their F5 plans.

In a late night talk between Derrick and Cody, Flashback to 1:29AM BBT 9/3, Cody says Christine would definitely put up Frankie while Frankie would most likely put up Christine. It’s tough to tell which direction Derrick is trying to point Cody in as he tells him concerns on both possible targets. Cody may not be open to suggestions though as he firmly states he will put up Frankie.

As their conversation continues it appears that Derrick is making sure Cody wouldn’t vote out Victoria over Christine in case they’re paired on the block (as he’s discussed with Frankie). Derrick also pushes Cody to avoid putting Caleb up as a renom if Frankie came down because he suggests Caleb might stay and Victoria would go then Cody would be stuck with one angry Caleb. What I think Derrick is really doing is making sure that if Cody noms Frankie but Frankie wins Veto then Cody puts up Christine. This way Derrick can make sure to get out either Frankie or Christine no matter what scenario plays out.

Right now it looks like Derrick has Frankie and Caleb convinced that Christine should be the target in the DE. Caleb can’t nominate, but he’ll be able to vote. Then he’s got Christine thinking that someone other than Victoria should be the one to go and he knows she’s none too happy with Frankie right now. Lastly he knows Cody is set to nominate Frankie as well and wants him gone over Victoria.

All that boils down to Frankie and Christine are primed as the main targets in Thursday’s Double Eviction. It will depend on which side of the target-divide wins HoH and then we’ll go from there.

Which Houseguest would you rather see evicted in the second round on Thursday night? Christine or Frankie? Share your thoughts.
