Big Brother 16: Will The Bomb Squad Alliance Explode?

With an alliance of eight Big Brother 16 Houseguests, the Bomb Squad mega-conglomerate was bound to hit some snags. Now with some showmantic (or lack of) drama brewing inside it some of its members wonder when it’s going to explode.

Caleb confessed his burning love for Amber on Sunday night earning him a deflating “thank you” response. Thanks to Devin having a talk with him (1AM BBT), Caleb is coming to slowly, very slowly understand that maybe that didn’t mean she loved him back. Now his over-sized alliance is waiting to see what happens between them and how it could impact their plans.

Cody and Zach were out playing late night pool at 2:30AM BBT when the topic of what could happen. Cody is confident “it doesn’t hurt as all.” Zach is a little more worried and notes that “ever since he came out to her” they haven’t been looking at each other. “That’s bad for us,” explains Zach.

Cody sees what he’s talking about and notes that “his ego is so bad” that he could decide that since he brought Amber in to the alliance then he can take her back out of it at will.

Overnight there was also talk from Caleb about bringing Brittany in to their fold (2:57AM BBT). Yes, a ninth member. Or, maybe an eighth if he decides Brittany should replace Amber. Brittany certainly seems to be “playing” the game more, but does the Bomb Squad really need any more cooks in its kitchen or simply votes to keep its control?

Most of the Bomb Squad alliance members have known this ridiculously sized group couldn’t last. It’s just a matter of what breaks it first and with so many moving parts it’s a race to that title. If Caleb’s rejection goes as well as some of us suspect then we could see their “BS” alliance fizzle out in no time.

What would you do if you were a Bomb Squad member? Stick by Caleb and oust Amber, add on Brittany to keep him happy, or maybe even decide to make a move on eliminating Caleb altogether? Share your thoughts below.
