From before the time Caleb Reynolds walked in the Big Brother 16 house he’s had wedding bells in his mind for the very beautiful Amber Borzorta. Now he just has to let her know she feels the same way.
How did Caleb know he was destined to be with Amber before the game started? According to the Big Brother Feeds, Caleb saw Amber at the airport and wished for the chance to be with her for 90 days in the BB16 house. I don’t know if it’s true, but that’s what was said.
So here they are, face to face, a couple of Big Brother spoons. Caleb has his chance at Amber and he’s not going to let it get away. Ever since the Feeds came on last week we’ve seen Caleb holding therapy sessions with various HGs telling them about his deep, deep feelings for his future wife. Totally normal when you’ve just met someone, right? Of course!
Most Houseguests advised Caleb to just wait and not say anything, but after days of saying “tonight’s the night I tell her of our love” he finally did it. How did it go? How do you think?
Caleb kicks off the awkward moment with a nervous laugh and the quick declaration, “I like you.” He explains neither one of them wants a showmance. “It’s not what I want. It’s not what you want.” That might be the last accurate statement Caleb makes in this conversation. No, wait. “I don’t know if I’m seeing what I’m seeing, or if I’m seeing something incorrectly.” That was the last.
Amber explains she doesn’t do showmances and Caleb is glad, because he doesn’t either. It’s Day 11 for both of these seasoned reality TV vets, mind you. He goes on to say that he’s attracted to her for more than just being gorgeous. He likes her for her morals and religious convictions.
Here’s where it really turns. “There’s a certain way you like at me throughout the day and I’m sure you feel the same way.” Uh oh. Run, Amber, run. “You look at me a LOT,” explains Caleb to Amber. “Am I wrong?” “I don’t know,” says Amber. “I didn’t know I looked at anybody a LOT.” Caleb says that “everybody sees you [do it].”
Caleb says he hopes that when this is all over… she interrupts him to say “this is all news to me.” Nevermind that, Amber, Caleb has more to tell you about your undying romance. Settle in and just accept it already.
When this is all over, Caleb explains, he’s going to stay here in California and they can be together and go on a “big dinner date” and watch a movie. He’s already got big, big plans. Just accept it.
Now Caleb raises a concern. When he comes in a room she leaves. Caleb doesn’t know why, but “it happens everytime!” He thinks it might be because the house sees them as the next Romeo & Juliet and that could make them a target. He’s pretty sure that’s it even those “we” haven’t given them a reason to think that. Oh yes, he’s already elevated their relationship to a “we” status. Perfect.
Amber drops the F-Bomb on Caleb: Friends. She wants to be friends with everyone. Not passionate lovers. Friends. I’m guessing Caleb is hearing a much different F-bomb though. He says he hasn’t be thinking about this too much. Lie. He can not stop talking about her and his obsession. Daily discussions on it. But no worries. Caleb says he understands and is much more interested in knowing her outside of the house. Translation: he thinks she doesn’t want a showmance, but loves him just as much and wants a real world romance. And babies. LOTS of babies.
This goes on for way too long. Amber thanks for him for telling him about their romance and slowly backs out of the room and runs for safety.
Later Amber laughs about the whole situation to the other girls. The word “crazy” gets tossed around. Flashback your Feeds to 3:02 as Amber goes to Jocasta, Victoria, and Nicole for help. There’s even more talk on this there for you to watch on your Feeds.
It’s hard to blame Caleb for his infatuation. Amber is a beautiful woman for sure. Ships have sailed for less. But Caleb, you’re getting way ahead of yourself. It’s creepy. Let’s keep our eyes on the prize here. Oh who am I kidding? There’s a good chance this will keep blowing up in his face and he’ll mistake the flames for her burning love.
As for Amber, come on, girl! Use this to your advantage. Bat your eyes, smile his way, and use him to advance your game and keep you safe. He’s already said he would take you to the end. Let him! Sadly I’m not sure Amber knows of the power of “love” in this game as she’s another complete novice to the series. And we’ve already seen how novices are doing so well this season.
Let’s just keep watching and see what fun develops from this. Now no one wants to see Caleb get hurt, but some highly awkward moments and chuckles at his romantic attempts are fair game, right?
