Big Brother Episode 28 Recap: Donny’s Veto Streak Ends, Team America Puts On A Play


It looks like Donny’s Big Brother 16 Power of Veto winning streak has come to a close. But don’t worry, America, Team America decided to take their mission into their own hands and do something about it! By putting on a Big Brother play! Did you guys hear that record scratch sound? Yeah, me too.

Yeah, despite what Big Brother and all of America had in mind, Frankie J. Grande thought it would be best to put on a play instead of save one of his fellow Team America members.

The episode picks up right after Cody decided to nominate Nicole and Cody for eviction. Donny says he’d be more surprised if he wasn’t nominated. He says if he doesn’t win veto, he’s probably going home.

Nicole is feeling deja vu as this just happened to her two weeks ago.

Derrick and Cody are already planning for Donny, the veto king, to win another veto, so Cody floats the idea of nominating Frankie in Donny’s place. But Derrick, being Derrick, puts his puppet back in his box and squashes that idea.

Speaking of Frankie and Derrick and Donny, it’s time for Team America’s first mission without Zach as their scapegoat. This week Team America must work together to attempt their own mission and impress America. If America votes that they were impressed, they win the mission. If not, they lose.

Donny, of course, wants the mission to be keep all the Team America members together this week (aka DO NOT evict Donny this week). I like this idea. But Frankie and Derrick won’t. Derrick will pretend like he does to Donny and us, but he really doesn’t want that mission.

Look everybody, it’s time for Victoria’s shining Big Brother 16 moment! Her wisdom teeth are coming in and she’s in pain AND she passes out in the bathroom! A doctor comes in and takes her out. But have no fear! She’s just fine and we’ve got the cherry guitar riffs to prove it!

At the veto draw, Christine, Derrick and Frankie are drawn to join Cody, Donny and Nicole in the competition.

So what about the Team America mission? So what’s Frankie think? He wants to put on a Big Brother play! Womp womp. Sorry, America. Frankie doesn’t care about Team America. But at least Donny shades Frankie’s idea in the diary room so maybe America will reject Frankie’s stupid idea.


It’s veto time. And it’s a counting/stay or fold competition with a CBS fall show (“Scorpion”) tie-in. And that tie-in is quite the stretch. Oh, and the Detonators, as usual, are planning to throw the competition because Frankie is apparently a good counter.

Out int he first round of the veto competition is Frankie. The plan to throw the comp didn’t work on the first round. No one is out in round 2 and Cody earns a point. In round 3, the same thing happens, so Cody has two points. And the next round they do the same thing. And Cody wins the veto and a viewing of “Scorpion.” So the Detonators have finally successfully thrown/controlled a competition.

At least Cody decides to not be a total ass and chooses Nicole and Donny to watch the premiere of “Scorpion” with him.

Team America decides to do Frankie’s “brilliant” play idea. So Frankie decides that each of the HGs should play one of the evicted HGs. And it’s all horribly stupid. It’s not even a play. It’s just a bunch of bad imitations. And not just bad, but horrible. If America votes yes for this, then I don’t know what’s wrong with America.

There’s one last editing trick to make us thing that Cody is going to use the veto and put up Frankie. But at the veto ceremony, that’s not what happens. Cody keeps his nominations the same so either Donny or Nicole will leave the house Thursday night.
