Big Brother 16 Episode 6 Recap: Devin’s HOH Reign Brings The Crazy


Sunday night’s episode of Big Brother 16 picked up right where much of America decided to scratch their eyes out when Julie tells Cody he is not the new HOH, but Devin is.

They replayed the tape for us and it was clear that Cody fouled. And we’re quickly reminded that Devin has a daughter and he will hopefully get pictures of her in his HOH room. You know, just to make sure he really has a daughter.

Not very many people are happy that Devin won Head of Household. But everyone puts on their fake smiling faces and suck it up and join in on the celebration.

It doesn’t take long for Devin’s guilt to set in for how he treated Donny, so he decides to come clean to him that he passed judgement on him. Donny is really nice about it and tells him not to worry about. But luckily Donny tells us in the Diary Room that it’s not going to be that easy for Devin. He’s going to have to prove that he can trust him.

That wasn’t enough for Devin, however. He decides to call a house meeting to repeat what he just told Donny. And even though I think I know what Devin is trying to do, it’s not working at all. It just makes him look crazy. Really crazy. He tells them that he’s upset, that he’s not playing the game he intended and that he was unfair to Donny and yada, yada, yada. He also said that he’s the reason who the first nominees were. So Caleb and Frankie are all “wait a minute.” They all told everyone the nominees were based on who fell first. So Caleb feels like the house now thinks Caleb was a liar.

We get a Hayden and Nicole flirtmance segment. So that leads to Nicole telling Christine that maybe Hayden would be good to add to their two-person alliance. And then Hayden walks in and they’re all “we want to be in an alliance” and so there it is. Christine says she’s “either really genius, or I’ll be destroyed really soon.”

It’s time for nomination talk. Devin says he’d think about putting up Brittany and Paola. Amber says she will not put up two girls. Everyone agrees that she has to put up a guy. But Amber refuses to put up Donny, so that leaves Hayden as the only other guy not in the Bomb Squad. So Derrick steps in to add Nicole into the mix.

So at the nomination ceremony, it’s no surprise that Devin nominates Brittany and Paola and Amber nominate Nicole and Hayden.

Devin explains to everyone that Brittany is definitely his target. He tells Hayden and Nicole that they have nothing to worry about and they aren’t going anywhere this week. He also says that Paola will throw the competition so Brittany remains on the block. Brittany realizes that she’s the target and says it will take a miracle to save her this week.


It’s time for Battle of the Block and it’s more of the college theme and the nominees have to look at a series of photos and answer questions based on what’s going on in the photos. In the end Hayden and Nicole come out on top. So They get to come off the block and Amber gets dethroned.

That means Devin reigns as the sole HOH and Brittany and Paola are the two nominees ahead of the veto competition and ceremony.

What do you think of the nominations? Who do you think will be going home this week?
