The power shift has arrived on Big Brother 16 as Week 6 rolls in to the station. We have two new HoHs with one of them making a first visit to the penthouse suite while the other seems ready to do it right this time and not get so worried about the decisions needed to be made. Those decisions are coming up very soon.
When last night’s show ended we did not know who won Head of Household on Big Brother, but luckily the Live Feeds came to the rescue and we discovered which two HGs held the power of nominations.
Donny Thompson and Nicole Franzel are this week’s HoHs as the Battle of the Block twist continues. They’ll both be nominating two HGs today at the Ceremony and after listening in on their conversations we know who to expect up on the block.
It didn’t take long for Donny and Nicole to get together in the Hive to discuss their options, but both wanted to keep appearances that they were not collaborating on this decision. In the twist’s sixth week I’m not sure anyone would take that claim seriously though.
Donny said he would not put up Jocasta, a decision Zach later questioned Donny over by asking how long he was going to carry her. She’ll still go up, just not as his. Initially Donny discussed going with some bait and switch nominees, but finally seemed to settle on going for a big target up front.
Donny will be nominating Caleb and Victoria. He gave Caleb a long talking-to about how turn about is fair play and if he went up at the Ceremony then he’d have more chances at safety. Victoria is of course panicking, naturally, and is very worried about being paired with a competition loser like Caleb. Heh.
Nicole is going with a similar approach in her nominations. She’ll use one weaker player with a stronger one to get the job done. Hers will be Zach and Jocasta.
Later in the night Nicole and Donny agreed on a backdoor target should everything work out like they hope. Expecting Nicole to remain HoH they would target Frankie for a Backdoor, but settle for a Zach eviction. I’m kinda surprised they aren’t going for a Caleb backup eviction over Zach, but maybe Nicole is still miffed about being called a “Froot Loop Dingus.” Thanks, Team America.
Regardless of what they expect, it comes down to who can do it better in the Battle of the Block later on Friday. Will Victoria and Caleb be able to pull off the win over Jocasta and Zach? It totally depends on the challenge. It could either be a pure thinker comp like Knight Moves or another physical comp like last week’s cake building. Tough call on who could win.
What do you think of their nomination plans? Would you want to see Caleb, Frankie, or Zach evicted this week on Big Brother 16?
