Big Brother 16 Episode 33 Recap: HGs Make The Week Pointless And Jeff Proposes to Jordan


The Big Brother 16 house guests had a surprise visit from Jeff and Jordan and helped them celebrate after Jeff popped the question. Oh, and the HGs hit the button that will rewind the game this week. Did someone tell Jeff the rewind doesn’t cancel out his proposal?

The episode picked up right after Christine was evicted and the house guests heard all the boos. They immediately decide they all hated Christine all along, basically. It’s pretty hilarious. Luckily, we don’t get to hear many of their delusions because the rewind button pops up on the screen. They don’t know what it means, but they start speculating right away.

Then they go to search for it. They go into the Have-Not room and there it is, along with a TV screen that says “The Choice is Yours.” Right now they can’t even get the glass box open. So more speculating. Frankie says he doesn’t think it would be a good result. And Derrick is afraid it will mess up his flawless game. Caleb is the only one who thinks it might be something good.

They start talking about Christine’s boos again. Frankie decides it has to be that America wasn’t OK with how close Christine, as a married woman, was with Cody. Frankie and Caleb think Christine really had something for him. But they all tell Cody they know he just wanted to be her friend.

As soon as Victoria leaves the room, the guys celebrate on making it to the final five and likely the final four. But there might be some other options for a few of the guys and most of them are aware of the options.


It’s HOH time. The HOHs have to transfer seeds (balls) across a giant teetering shovel. They have to collect all their seeds without letting them fall out of the end of the giant shovel. In the end, Frankie wins the Head of Household because no one else in this season other than Frankie can ever win anything physical.

As soon as the HOH is over, the HGs run into the button room and see that they are now free to push the button. They are still debating, but Frankie insists they must push the button, but they have to be prepared for the worst. The push it and a timer pops on the screen. Something happens in 5 days and 20 some hours.

Victoria is upset about losing the game but Derrick tells her that he thinks the button is going to change everything, so there’s no reason to worry. He then tells her that she’s the best girl from Big Brother 16. And we all try not to laugh.

Frankie now has to start talking about tough choices. He has to figure out who to nominate of the other final five. Derrick and Caleb of course push for Cody. So that seems like the easy choice.


And now for Big Brother’s attempt at competing with Utopia’s premiere. The HGs are sitting around and the doorbell rings. And in comes Jeff and Jordan. And it’s fun to watch all the people who have never seen the show pretend like they’ve loved Jeff and Jordan they’re entire lives.

The HGs and Jordan think they’re there to host a luxury competition, but it’s really just the ploy for Jeff to finally pop the question. Their families pop up as do country music artist Brett Eldridge.

OK, back to the game. It’s time for the nomination ceremony. Frankie goes with the most expected scenario and nominates Victoria and Cody. Of course we all know that the HGs pushing the rewind button means the nominations as of now mean nothing.
