Big Brother Live Recap: Season 16 Premiere Episode 2

Tonight on Big Brother 16 we learn the fate of eight additional Houseguests as they join last night’s first group and enter the house to compete for a half-million dollars. Along with the results of the next HoH comp we’ll also learn the first member of this season’s Team America twist.

Picking up where the Big Brother premiere left off last night the remaining eight Houseguests will repeat a similar process. We’ll be introduced to their BB16 personas as they receive their keys and are whisked off to Los Angeles and climb the steps to the Big Brother house.

Ahh the introductions. Victoria is that same Victoria I met last week. I don’t think I could deal with the princess act for very long. Here comes Caleb showing off his hunting skills. Christine shows off her quirky side and husband. Speaking of husbands, Brittany is just out of a ten year marriage and looking forward to getting in that house.

But wait, there’s more. We’ve also got Derrick the cop. I like his potential for smart game play. Hayden promises to surprise HGs with his smarts hidden under his beach bum look. Zach is another one with fun potential but he’ll need to watch himself and not go overboard. And then there’s Jocasta. She’ll be a big personality in the house for sure, but should be lots of fun too.

Now back at the house, Julie reveals to the HGs another eight have already gone in and there’s even an HoH already. Don’t worry, HGs, because another one will be crowned tonight.

Once inside we’ll find out more about how the first group of eight handles the arrival of “The Others” who are invading their home. It’ll be interesting tonight to see what the second group thinks when they discover they’re showing up to the party a day late.

First group in: Hayden, Caleb, Christine, and Jocasta. They quickly meet and then dash off for rooms.

Next group is Zach, Derrick, Brittany, and Victoria. The house is going nuts as they great and meet.

Potential mini-alliances start growing. Frankie and Victoria immediately pair up and start plotting to get HoHs together. He wants to work with her on the “other side.” Then over there you’ve got Paola feeling out Caleb. Not literally. She’s worried about him.

Waiting in the backyard for Group 2 is a Hawaiian Luau but with no piggies in sight it’ll be these new Houseguests roasting in a battle to become the second Head of Household opposite Frankie Grande.

First out of the competition is Victoria, so there goes Frankie’s plan. Seven are left in the comp. Brittany is out next after Big Brother starts spraying them with BBQ sauce. Oops, there goes Jocasta who slips right off.

Next we see Christine falling and soon behind is Zach, who drops on purpose, as does Derrick. That leaves just Caleb and Hayden, as I reported earlier today… Hayden falls. Caleb is HoH!

Caleb will join Frankie as the other Head of Household this week!

Julie brings the HGs in to the Living room for big twist details. She explains both HoHs nominate two players, but here’s the Battle of the Block twist. The BotB comp will ONLY feature the four nominees but not the HoHs. Which ever duo wins will dethrone the HoH who nominated them. Won’t this just create an incentive for HoHs to nominate weak players so their noms don’t win BotB and knock them off their throne? Okay, this doesn’t sound good for letting HoHs pick the targets they want, but anyway.

The dethroned HoH is then vulnerable to be nominated when the Power of Veto is played out. You can go from HoH to evicted in the same week. Crazy.

Time to reveal the first member of Team America. Who will it be? Joey?? Seriously? Well okay. She reads the details and reveals the Team America players will all be aware of each other through their challenges. Speaking of other members, you can vote at CBS’s site for member #2 now.
