Big Brother 16 – Week 9 Nomination Anticipation| August 22, 2014 at 10:00 AM EDT
The return of a popular, but ultimately doomed, Houseguest could be short-lived as the tightly knit guys alliance immediately went in to lockdown mode with promises to out anyone who dared speak to the outsider. Nicole’s second trip to the Big Brother house might not last too long.
Now that the new HoH has been crowned and Cody revealed as the winner, having beat Donny out by a half-second, according to Derrick, there is no doubt that Donny and Nicole will be the targets for nomination.
Cody has spent the past several days promising to “go off” on Donny as he has often threatened to do to most of the season’s cast. While he promised to do it if he won HoH there was no such talk in sight. Instead Cody has now promised to trash Donny in his “epic” nomination speech. Thankfully I doubt that will happen as Cody has followed through on few, if any, of his promises in the house.
Nicole is the collateral damage to the targeting of Donny. She’ll be safe unless Donny wins the Veto, and we do know how he likes to do that. Either way, she’ll be going up on the block with him.
Cody spoke with Frankie, Christine, and Victoria last night at 2:20AM BBT 8/22 to confirm his talk with Nicole and what he would say to Donny. There’s little to discuss, as Cody pointed out.
Interestingly we also heard frequently this week that if there was no more Battle of the Block then Donny would not go up on the block so they could hope for improved odds to keep him out of the Veto comp and Backdoor him from the game. I’m not sure what happened to that plan as it did make sense, but that’s no longer their approach.
As for when the nominations will occur, I do not know. All season we had an early Nomination Ceremony to make time for the BotB that afternoon, but this week is different. There’s no more BotB so they have all day for noms prep. In past seasons we’d often get the noms revealed well in to the night which is a shame considering it’s obvious what’s going to happen and it’s nice to get the confirmation and discussion rolling on those.
I will continue to monitor the Feeds for any changes in their plans, but for now you can anticipate Donny & Nicole as the noms today with the target on Donny.
What do you think of Cody’s plan? Is it the right move or should he be considering a flip on his allies?
