In what could have been an explosive few days of Big Brother 16 leading up to this week’s live eviction – instead we have just about the whole house targeting the same person. That makes for a Ho-Hum week. See below for my BB16 player rankings for each person this week.
Caleb – 3 strips of Tofu. Caleb’s crush on Amber is getting old. He has said over and over he is done with her, yet still follows her around and in doing so – lost the trust of his original alliance. This week would have been insane if he went up as the replacement nominee and we could have seen a Cowboy Beast Mode Meltdown. Taking $5000 instead of the Veto just furthered the frustration between him & Cody.
Zach – 3 strips of Tofu. Is anyone else getting sick of Zach’s 3rd Base Coach arm slaps or whatever the hell he is doing?? He asked Cody to put him up on the block because he thinks he would be safe. Zach, bro – you may not be as safe as you think. The Dr. Will shtick is also getting old.
Brittany – 2 strips of Tofu. Brittany has used the same word over and over “deserving” that it kind of lost its meaning. She was the target and lost both the BotB and POV. Instead she won the right to kick a soccer ball 2400 times. Too bad that will have nothing to do with keeping her safe. Her only hope was that she would be sitting next to a bigger threat on Thursday – but as we saw, that plan never panned out. She could still luck out, but don’t think so… she deserves to go see her kids this weekend!
Hayden – 2 strips of Tofu. Hayden has been busier trying to get Nicole to make out with him (which he finally did) than be involved in game talk. He does not seem aware that people are using him as a number and possibly ally later. He also keeps mooning the camera!
Amber – 1 strip of Tofu. Amber’s game is melting down as people in the house are starting to get sick of her. She got nominated again, and won the Battle of the Block again – which is the only reason why she did not get more tofu this week. Making Caleb eat a pickle so she would go on a date with her – and then being shocked that he actually did it (did you really think he wouldn’t)? She has moved up on the target list for the guys running the house right now. She better hope she can keep winning when she needs to.
Donny – 1 strip of Tofu. Donny is the most loved HG in & out of the house. His going up on the block was a good choice by Cody to ensure Brittany leaves. But he is keeping it too cool. He has a lot of ammo to use against other people but chooses not to use any of it. He needs to start building an army instead of just being complacent & let his popularity get him further in the game.
Christine – 1 strip of Bacon. Christine is one of 4 people that has not been nominated yet – and that just shows she is pretty well protected from all sides. She does not take this for granted and still works to make sure she continues to build bonds with people both in & out of the game. I still think she is in the best position in the house – but she will have to step up at some point if she wants to win the $500K
Cody – 2 strips of Bacon. Cody won HoH and was in a position to make the first REALLY BIG MOVE this season by putting Caleb up as a re-nom. As fans we all wanted to see that happen, but for his game, it would not make sense. In the end he played it safe, and right now, that’s smart. As outgoing HoH he will need to keep himself as safe as possible. Only reason he does not get more Bacon is – he is a soccer player & loses a soccer based POV?? Cmon man! I am truly surprised that the rumor has not made its way back to Caleb yet. If it does we can have an epic battle to the death.
Derrick – 2 strips of Bacon. Derrick is still doing a great job getting in people’s ears and having others do his dirty work for him. All the while keeping himself off most people’s radars. There was absolutely no fallout by him getting Devin out last week – and this week he went back to being a cheerleader to Cody while planting seeds of what he should do. I think his talk with Cody was the one that changed his mind to putting up Caleb.
Nicole – 2 strips of Bacon. She worked hard to make sure the nominations stayed the same during the Veto competition, but instead has to wear another outfit for the week. This time the adorable Germatard. Her goofy side has the HG’s not fear her as a player – but she is much more aware of what is going on than people think. Snuggle time with Hayden could end up costing her as people can use that as an excuse to nominate them later.
Frankie – 3 strips of Bacon. Frankie won his 2nd HoH of the season, but also lost his 2nd HoH of the season – which is completely fine at this stage of the game. No blood on his hands, and the people he nominated are not even that upset at him. He has also stayed loyal to his inner circle and is always the one that people come to when they are upset. No one sees him for the huge threat that he is because he constantly deflects anything that can be construed as him having any power.
Victoria – 5 strips of Bacon. The best feeling in the Big Brother house is when you win a Veto when you are on the block. While Victoria was not the number one target this week, her personality has been getting under people’s skin and could have been a victim if she was still on the block come Thursday. She threw a wrench in Cody’s plans and caused him to scramble big time. Everyone thought she was not a strong competitor – but she beat out Caleb, Cody, & Brittany. Chances are next week she will be nominated again, but she may be able to build a little bit of confidence with this week’s POV win.
That brings us to the Tofurkey of the Week. This week was tough because it has been a relatively Ho Hum week. But Jocasta has to get the award. She was kicking ass in the HoH competition with Brittany and would have made for the best HoH duo this week as we have no clue what she would do. She also floundered in the Battle of the Block competition – leaving Amber to have to win by herself. Her vote this week will be interesting as Brittany is her closest friend & Donny gave her his Veto when she was too sick to play for herself. Chances are she will vote “with the house.”
Let’s hope next week will be a little more exciting!
