Diary Room: Big Brother 16 Week 3 Power Rankings By Adam Poch

After last week’s fireworks – we had a relatively drama free week inside the Big Brother House. There was plenty of possibilities for some mayhem, and still a long way to Thursday – but we pretty much know this week is over. With that said – here are this week’s rankings.

Amber – 2 strips of Bacon. After a brief HoH stint last week, she didn’t get too upset when Nicole nominated her as payback this week. The fact that she has been keeping Caleb at bay despite his obvious crush on her is to be applauded. Even though the Battle of the Block was thrown to her, she still kept her composure and pulled out the win.

Brittany – 3 strips of Tofu. After lighting the fuse at last week’s Veto meeting, she basically slide back into the background. With no real alliances in the house, another week of safety gave her the time to try to forge some more bonds around the house. Instead she is still on the outs with most of them and chances are she will be going back on the block next week unless she wins HoH.

Caleb – 1/2 strip of Bacon. Remember how last week everyone got mad at Paola for throwing the BotB? Caleb volunteered to do the exact same thing this week, but no one got upset. The whole house wants Devin out, and he did his part to see that that happens. Even though it was not strategic, it was romantic-ish. He did not get the reaction from Amber he was hoping for, but it is nerve-racking sitting on the block all week.

Christine – 1 strip of Bacon. Good job by Christine doing damage control over the possible fallout with Nicole regarding Christine’s role in the Bomb Squad. She has been doing a good job sitting back & keeping her cool while everyone else around the house going a little crazy. I see a strong 2nd half of the game from her.

Cody – 1 strip of Tofu. Pretty much a nonfactor on the the CBS show – but always flirting with the ladies in the house on the Live Feeds. While that strategy may work, giving Jocasta a strip tease dance after the Veto to make her feel better was a little creepy.

Derrick – 5 strips of Bacon. A perfect week for him as HoH. He manipulated Nicole into making the nominations he wanted her to do, he manipulated Caleb into “volunteering” to go up, and his plan to backdoor Devin seems to be working perfectly. Derrick did his part with Team America to help spread the rumor about Zach being related to BB15 Amanda. To top it all off – he did some camera talking & let the live feeders at home know what was going on in his head. Gee, I wonder where he got that idea from???

Donny – 4 1/2 strips of Bacon. Derrick has had the perfect week – Donny had a near perfect week. Not freaking out that he was nominated again, he helped lead his “team” to the BotB win. Then coming back to win his 2nd Veto of the season – and unselfishly used it on Jocasta who was too sick to compete. His only hiccup was spreading the Team America rumor a little thick leading some people to question if he was America’s Player. This can come back to bite him later, but if he keeps winning POVs – then he can do anything else he wants.

Frankie – 1 strip of Tofu. Everyone is starting to figure out he is playing the best social game, but yet they still allow him to do his thing without any repercussions. He was not as active in the Team America task, but still gonna collect $5,000 this week. With that kind of money, he can buy his own bacon!

Hayden – 2 strips of Tofu. Perhaps if he stopped asking Nicole to make out with hi, he may actually be getting some from her.

Jocasta – 4 strips of Tofu. Who knows the real reason she was “too sick” to compete in the POV this week. But if you are on the block – you should be looking deep inside yourself for strength to compete. If not for her buddy Donny taking her off the block, she may have stayed in bed all week.

Nicole – 2 strips of Bacon. She knew she made a big mistake winning HoH this week, but allowed Derrick to take control and allow her to slide back under the radar. Having both Hayden & Cody flirting with her could be useful later, so she is keeping them both at arms length, but allowing some froggie cuddle time.

Victoria – 5 strips of Tofu. Ummmm – I got nothing

Zach – 2 strips of Tofu. Similar to Brittany, created a lot of drama last week during the Veto meeting, and definitely stirred up the house. But after getting the votes together to keep himself safe, he spent most of this week doing what he has done so much of the rest of the time, ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ. (side note – anyone remember before the season Dr. Will said he was coaching someone??? Could this be who he was talking about?)

That brings us to the Tofurkey of the Week – and for the 2nd time in 3 weeks – that award goes to Devin. He tried to get Derrick to nominate him so he could have 2 chances of saving himself this week. That did not work, so his only hope was to get picked int he Veto competition. Reports say that he was doing well in the Veto and could have won, but didnt. After the Veto meeting, he has pretty much rolled over and died. He seems content to going on a date with Julie Chen this Thursday. I hope he has a little fight left in him, this is a perfect opportunity for the house to get Caleb out. I see Devin trying something, but it may be too late. He should have started working on people earlier in the week.
