Diary Room: Big Brother 16 Week 12 Player Rankings By Adam Poch

Well, the Big Brother Feeds have been down almost 24 hours – there has been an eviction & a new HoH – all of which has been under lock & key by CBS (as of now – no spoiler leaks).

I will look back and give my Big Brother 16 rankings on the Rewind week & what I am hopeful for in the fast forward week.

Victoria – 2 strips of Tofu – Victoria’s so pretty – she accidentally won $5000 – yeah, that pretty much sums up her week & her game. Accidentally getting further. As fans – we like to see players shake it up and be aggressive all season. As a player – you need to do whatever you can to get to the end. Victoria has done pretty much neither – BUT… all the people that went home before her, would swap their spot with her any day. So hate her game play all you want, just know hate = jealousy.

Derrick – 1 strip of Bacon – In the week that was not really a week, Derrick came up with a plan to get jury votes & get the rest of the people left in the house to want to take him to the Final 2. He once again played his Victoria fiddle perfectly and she went along with it. Was that a genius move by Derrick, or could it come back and bite him in the butt? Well, if it gets out there that it was all fake, he may have a hard time getting out of that jam. Luckily for him, these people have not compared notes all season.

Cody – 3 strips of Bacon – Cody didnt do horrible in the Veto the first time around – but stepped up his game and won the Veto this time. Perhaps it was a little less stressful this time around for him since he was no ton the block. Either way, Veto at this time in the game is even more important than HoH, since he will have 2 chances to get himself into the Final 3.

Caleb – 4 strips of Bacon – after just losing by a couple of balls, Caleb came back and won the re-wind Seed Saw HoH. He wasted no time attempting to get more blood on his hands and nominated Frankie with the hopes that he goes home next. He could have made a big mistake if Frankie won Veto and saved himself, but Beast Mode Cowboy did not care. At the end of the day – Caleb is building up quite a resume to present to the jury. Just needs to win Veto in the short week since he is not eligible to play in the HoH (that was already played).

That leads us to this week’s Tofurkey of the Week – which is Frankie. Has anyone else had the roller coaster of a season as Frankie has? At first he was beloved by HG’s & fans alike – then the big reveal – and since then, he has been both a competition beast, and threat to win the game. He had come close to being backdoored twice – once by Caleb who was scared to pull the trigger, and once by Derrick during the 2nd Double Eviction of the season.

Frankie then went on to have all the power last week by winning HoH & Veto. Too bad for him it did not mean a thing – as the week was wiped out by them pressing the Rewind Button, which he said before to everyone not to touch (but then was the first one to want to push it). I bet he is wishing he stayed true to his original thought because Frankie went on to lose HoH, lose Veto, and probably walked out the door. A real Penthouse to Outhouse story.

As mentioned in the header – we still do not know the official results of last night – so here are 2 scenarios, 1 as a fan, and 1 as a prognosticator.

FAN – Victoria stayed against Frankie, won HoH – nominates Cody & Caleb. The 2 guys realize that the fight between Vic & Derrick was a hoax, Caleb wins Veto – and votes to evict Derrick. Yes, I have been singing the praises all season of how amazing of a game Derrick has played, but at this point, the fan in me wants to see someone else win.

PROGNOSTICATOR – Derrick probably won HoH – will nominate Victoria & Caleb – will also win Veto – Cody will be the only vote, and get rid of Caleb as the Hitmen see him as their last hurdle to sitting next to each other in the final 2. For Derrick’s sake, he needs the short week to play out like that. If it is reversed & Cody wins HoH & Veto – that will build up his resume a bit to the jury – and even if he is sitting next to Derrick – he will have a fighting chance for the big check.

We are just 8 days away from putting this season to a close. With the end in sight we can only hope to see some much needed fireworks, as the season of the “Safe Moves” has left us with a lot of anticipation only to see the moves not made.

Question of the week for you all – if Frankie was sent to jury – do you think he will spill the beans to them about Team America in an effort to sabotage Derrick from winning?

If you are in the NY/NJ area and want to come watch the final 3 HoH & then play general trivia to win $50 & prizes – come out to Willie McBrides in Hoboken tomorrow night – more info – click here: https://www.facebook.com/events/664029360375008/
