Big Brother 16: Week 8 Veto Plans – What Renom Rule?

Later today on Big Brother 16 Live Feeds the Veto Ceremony will be held and sadly for the fans of one particular HG, the same target from earlier this weekend has remained the top candidate and things are only making it worse as the days progress. And the Renom Rule? Forget about it.

Since the Veto was won on Saturday talk around the house quickly shifted to targeting Zach for eviction. Soon everyone knew but Zach and even that was just a matter of time. Last night on the Feeds Frankie and Caleb tied up that loose end.

Flashback to 10:14PM BBT 8/17 Cams 1/2 as Caleb and Frankie kick off the talk. Actually Zach kicks it off by saying he read an open letter to the future BB16 Houseguests by Dan Gheesling. Dan reminded those soon to be players that this was all a game and to treat it as such. Zach goes on to say it’d be a waste to send home Victoria when Frankie could get someone like him or Cody out. Or Derrick, Zach. Or Derrick. Not that anyone ever mentions Derrick’s name. It’s amazing.

Frankie tells Zach that everyone in the house has come to him and say they want Zach gone. Frankie assures Zach this isn’t about Zach’s past transgressions because he has healed, but Zach obviously hasn’t. Huh what?

Frankie goes on to tell Zach this was all Zach’s idea and he (Zach) planted the seed. Frankie insists he didn’t even think of it until Zach mentioned the idea. Of course that’s a lie considering Frankie has been pushing for Zach to go for weeks and weeks. Zach tells him to stop saying that because it’s making him feel bad, but he understands that it’s better for Frankie’s game for him to go.

Now comes the Twitter-storm. Fans got all worked up over the “Renom Rule” which says an HoH isn’t allowed to tell a nom or a renom that they’re going up on the block. Guess what: this happens every season and we can only find one instance where it was actually enforced. In BB12 Brendon told Brittany she was going up against Lane. Brendon was called to DR, told he couldn’t tell her that, and the noms were changed to Lane and Ragan.

Remember earlier this season when Devin went around to all four pending noms, not just his two but all four, and told them they were going up? Yep. He told them each individually of their upcoming nomination. Remember how production then canceled out all those noms because Devin violated the rule? Yeah, I don’t remember that happening either because it didn’t happen.

Even Frankie’s family joined the protests online through Twitter saying Frankie was using this rule as part of this plan to save Zach by getting him prohibited from becoming the renom. Come on, folks, we know that’s not true. I can imagine Frankie using that excuse later when he gets out and feels the backlash from Zankie fans. Frankie has wanted Zach out for a long, long time. This week he’s going to get his wish.

Later today at the Veto Ceremony Frankie will take Caleb off the block and put Zach up next to Cody. With Cody on the block and only five votes out there it’s a lock for Zach to go. Caleb, Victoria, and Derrick will vote to keep Cody and that’s all it takes.
