Big Brother 16: Houseguests Speculate On Mysterious Button

The Big Brother 16 Houseguests have pressed the mysterious button that arrived in their home and the clock has been counting down ever since. So what happens next? They’re not sure, but that isn’t stopping them from speculating on all the possibilities.

As soon as the HGs saw the button flash up on the Memory Wall screens they began speculating on what this could mean for the game. Gotta love all of Caleb’s wild fantasies about the treasures it would bring them. You can tell he isn’t terrible familiar with Big Brother’s history of “surprises.”

Eventually the HGs all decided to push it together just as they’ve done everything together even though Derrick warned them this could be bad. As it turns out this could hurt Frankie the most, he just doesn’t know it yet. Or maybe he does.

While Derrick told Frankie that same night he was worried the button would result in Frankie being dethroned it’s still just a guess for them. All they know at this point for sure is the clock will hit zero at 5:35PM BBT on Wednesday. That will be right in the middle of the new schedule’s live eviction show.

Since the Veto Ceremony arrived a day early the HGs have come to the understanding that there will most likely be a live show Wednesday night, but the rest of their guessing has been entertaining.

Yesterday afternoon the guys gathered in the mystery room to discuss the importance of the mirrors and the word “GAME” written across the walls. Flashback to 12:15PM BBT 9/7 as their guesses run wild.

Someone suggests the mirrors hint that the HGs will have to “reflect on their game” and have a deep meaning instead of just being mirrors. There are lots of guesses on the repeating word as well but it seems they’re just bored and killing time with ideas. The button is going to turn their week upside down so that’s what I’d guess was behind the design, but we know a lot more than they do.

When the timer does hit zero the HGs will “rewind” the week and do it all over. Frankie will lose his HoH and Veto win along with his safety. If he wants to avoid eviction, as he thinks the guys are coming after him, then he’ll have to win them all over again.

Considering the clock hits zero at 5:35PM BBT that seems a little late in the hour to get a new HoH, noms, Veto comp, Veto ceremony, AND a live eviction covered in just 25 mins. So either the timer isn’t exact or we’ll just get a few parts of the do-over included in the show.
