Big Brother 16: What’s Going On Inside During The Blackout?

The Big Brother 16 Feeds have been down since early Monday morning, but sight unseen we still have an idea of what’s been going on in there. My guess? It’s been very busy.

Based on past seasons it’s safe to say the HGs have had a lot on their plates as the F5 became the summer’s Final Four last night as Big Brother taped the events for Tuesday’s show. The two voting HGs went inside the DR and made the latest eviction official, but things didn’t stop there.

It’s safe to expect that Frankie was evicted yesterday evening during an episode recorded and prepared to be broadcast tonight starting at 8PM on CBS. Once his eviction interview with Julie was wrapped up the remaining HGs prepared for the next Head of Household competition.

Caleb as the outgoing HoH was ineligible to compete which means this round went to either Cody, Derrick, or Victoria. Last season this HoH comp was the “Before or After” challenge which really could go to any of them. Wouldn’t this be an amazing time for Victoria to pull off her first solo win of the season?

Tuesday’s show will likely stop right there with the new HoH being crowned, but those BB16 HGs, they kept right on working!

At some point either Monday night or early Tuesday morning the HGs held the next Nomination Ceremony. Only three options are available which gives Derrick a narrow chance to once again avoid the chopping block if he doesn’t win HoH for himself.

Once noms were set the next event was the Power of Veto competition and this was a big one. If the HoH wins it then he or she will decide who will stay off the block and cast the sole vote. If any of the other three HGs wins then he or she will be the only one voting and decide who to send to Jury.

Last year the Veto Ceremony was held live during the eviction show rather than being pre-recorded like the Veto comp portion before it. It seems reasonable to expect that again.

Wrap it all up: Tonight’s show will take us through Frankie’s eviction and the next HoH competition. Once Feeds return we’ll learn who was nominated and who won the critical Power of Veto comp. From there we’ll be setup for Wednesday’s show for the Veto Ceremony and live eviction to reveal the BB16 F3.

It’s going to be a VERY busy few days in the house once Feeds return so be sure to join us on Facebook, Twitter, and get our Email Updates so you catch all the latest spoilers and updates.
