I think we’ve got our next Brenchel, folks! How perfect are Caleb and Amber! Team Camber!
OK, I’m joking. As we saw during Wednesday night’s episode of Big Brother 16, Caleb has it bad for Amber, but he’s not even a blip on her radar. So the edit we get is far from the sweet showmance edit Big Brother typically gives us. It was actually quite creepy.
But the entire episode wasn’t just the story of a potential fatal attraction, it was also the story of a hero in the form of a school groundskeeper.
The episode picks up after the Battle of the Block competition and the houseguests find that Nicole didn’t really disappear. She just had to go to the Diary Room to puck up a frog costume. Devin quickly reminds us that he’s clearly the target and Derrick backs that up. The backdoor plan is on.
Meanwhile, Jocasta is near death, so the house pitches in to help her out. It was apparently a little too hot for her during that competition, so she’s found herself overheated.
More on Jocasta later. Let’s get take a trip to Creepville.
So Claeb threw the Battle of the Block to make sure Amber is safe this week. He decides to cash in his heroics with Amber. He thinks what he did deserves him a date to the Big Brother 16 finale. She says no and is clearly not even remotely interested in him. He gets super creepy and weird (as does the background music) and Amber gets upset. Cut to the next scene and we’ve got Cody giving Amber a back rub as Caleb watches and listens from the bedroom.
Caleb gets up, walks by, glares at them and walks on. Caleb decides to confront Cody about it. He says he feels like something is going on, and if there is, it’s fine. He just wants to know about it, he tells him. Cody assures him that nothing is going on.
Cody is now worried about Caleb, so he decides he might have to strike first. He and Derrick talk about the idea that if Devin escapes the backdoor plan, it might be the time to send Caleb out the door. Love bites, indeed.
I guess I should talk about the Team America mission even though I’d rather not even think about it, much less write about it. Anyway, Donny tells Nicole. Nicole tells Christine (point scored). Derrick tells Caleb. Caleb tells Amber (point scored). Derrick and Donny tell Zach. Zach tells everyone (final point scored).
Back to the walking dead (Jocasta). Seriously, she looks like death. She’s still laid up in bed and won’t even be able to play in the veto competition to save herself from the block. Speaking of the veto, competition, what the HGs didn’t want to happen happened. Devin got picked to play, along with Donny, Christine, Derrick as HOH and Caleb as the nominee.
At the casino-themed veto competition Devin and Christine square off and Devin wins round one. Christine is out. Oops. Up next is Derrick vs. Devin. Devin wins round two. Oops. Derrick is out. The next round is Donny vs. Devin. Donny wins won the third round, knocking Devin out. So it’s Caleb vs. Donny. And again, Donny wins the round and the Power of Veto.
My favorite part of the veto competition? Amber’s “Good job, buddy” hug to Caleb. Where she followed it with “ew, you’re all sweaty” and a dry heave. I think she’s in love, y’all!
Donny goes inside and shows the veto to Jocasta and tells her she’s not going home this week. And she explodes in tears. But those tears are dried quickly when Cody comes in and performs a striptease for her.
Elsewhere, Devin is defeated and knows what’s ahead. He knows he’ll be going on the block and most likely going home. And at the Veto Ceremony, Donny sets that plan in motion as he uses the veto on Jocasta. Derrick names Devin as the replacement and should be going home during tomorrow night’s live eviction episode.
