Big Brother 16 Live Feeds Hot Topic For Aug. 8: Zankie Is Dead


Things have gotten crazy in the Big Brother 16 house. Finally. If you don’t know yet, Nicole and Christine are the Heads of Household and they’ve nominated Zach/Donny and Caleb/Frankie respectively.

But there’s a big plan in motion that involves a throwing of the Battle of the Block so that Nicole stays HOH and Frankie can be backdoored. So that also means Zach is safe. Which leads me to today’s Live Feeds Hot Topic. And it’s sort of a two-for-one.

Without further delay, the hot topic is Zankie is dead and Zachole is alive.

It all sounds crazy, but as of today that’s what’s happening in the house. Zach knows that Frankie has betrayed him, so he’s done with him. And he knows that Cody and Derrick are each others’ priorities. Nicole is feeling alone after she and Hayden were blindsided in last night’s Double Eviction that sent Hayden packing. So it sounds like the perfect opportunity for them to team up. From adversaries to unlikely allies.

A lot of the day consisted of this talk, but if want to see the start of it, flashback to 11:52 AM BBT and you’ll see Frankie following Zach around asking him why he’s so mad at him. Zach says he does not have to explain it to him and that he should just know. Christine comes in also and Zach says he does not want to talk to either of them.

Flashback to 12:09 PM BBT for a conversation between Nicole and Zach in the HOH room:

“I honestly hate him. And the fact that my game was in his hands …” Zach says of Frankie.

Zach tells her that they have to work together and that she has him in the palm of her hand if she wants to. She agrees, but us apprehensive.

“Zach, how can I freaking trust you?” she asks, afraid Frankie will try to lie and manipulate him.  “I don’t want him to get in your mind. He’s good.”

Zach says he’s done. He tells her he told him he can’t even stay in the same room with him. He also asks her not to let Christine get in her head. She says she won’t but she has to stay cordial with her. They agree that working together is their best bet. They even bring up a final two idea. They hug on their new agreement.

Do you think Zach and Nicole can make this work?
