The Big Brother 16 Power of Veto competition is over and we have the results! Only five HGs remain so everyone was playing for the power and this was a big, BIG battle with both nominees’ games on the line and one of them a giant target. Ready to find out who won? Read on…
Big Brother 16 Spoilers: Week 12 Veto Competition Results:
Houseguests finally woke up well in to the afternoon today when word came that there was a new Team America mission. It was a bombshell. The reported news was also not correct.
Initial word was that Derrick and Frankie had a new mission, but keep in mind, the details are not correct. It was reported that if they got to the finale together then the winner would win an extra $50K. Red flags went up for everyone. That sounds like blatant production interference to get Derrick to keep Frankie ahead of an eviction attempt. It’s not accurate. This is not true.
Flashback to 1:29PM BBT 9/12. Frankie comes back to the bathroom to join Derrick. After a big hug they begin discussing what sounds like a new Team America mission. “Doesn’t change anything, we still got to get there,” says Derrick. There being the F2 and their reward: an extra $50K to the winner, but do they have to get there together? Not according to the later part of the discussion.
Here’s what got people worked up. Derrick says if they get there (F2) together then they guarantee one of them gets $550K. That sounds like they have to get there together, but as the talk continues it’s apparent that they do not. He points out there is no $50K prize for second. There is no incentive for TA to get to the end together.
Jump ahead to 1:35PM BBT Cams 1/2. (Get the Free Trial now & watch!) Derrick says there’s “only one way to guarantee one of us wins $550K. One option. We both have to be there.” Okay, again that sounds like it means they both have to be there, but wait just a few more seconds.
Derrick adds, “if I knick you off and I’m there, nobody might get it.” There. So either one can still win the $50K bonus for winning as a TA member even without the other being in the F2. Done.
The guarantee part is simply that if both F2 seats are filled by a TA member then obviously one or the other gets an extra $50K. That’s what Derrick is suggesting.
While I was typing this up, Big Brother producer Chris Roach put out on Twitter to BB alum Shelly Moore that it was “not correct” about the claims that Team America had to get to the end together. Well that could have saved me a lot of typing!
So what are they talking about all this “together” stuff for then? Derrick wants to calm Frankie after Caleb spilled the beans about them targeting Frankie for eviction. This makes it sound like Derrick wants to keep Frankie. He doesn’t. Then Frankie keeps pushing “together” so Derrick won’t want to get rid of him. He does.
One addition, 1:41PM BBT, Frankie tells Derrick that if he (Frankie) wins the $550K then he’ll give Derrick $100K. Clarification: Frankie was saying he’d give Derrick half the TA bonus $50K, so $50K for 2nd + $25K from TA missions + $25K from half of the bonus just offered.
You can NOT say that. You can’t offer a bribe. It is explicitly against the rules. Otherwise someone at F3 says “take me and I’ll give you half my winnings.” It’s against the rules flat out. Frankie would know this if he were actually such a big fan of the show as he claims to be over and over.

I don’t want to blow this out of proportion, but we really could be a looking at a F2-deciding situation today on Big Brother 16 with the next Power of Veto competition. The stage is set for a very high-stakes competition and everyone knows it. Thanks, Caleb.
With only five players left in the game this week, again, all of the remaining HGs will be competing in the Power of Veto with the return of “Big Brother Freakshow.” While we know it’ll be the same competition as last week we do not know if it’ll be the same six “freaks.” Considering Big Brother slightly changed up the see-saw comp with more and differ “seeds” I would hope they’d also take the time to do new faces. I’m fairly confident they will do that.
So how could this next all-so critical Power of Veto turn out? Let’s run through the scenarios.
The best thing about Caleb as a HG is he’s so honest. The worst thing about Caleb as a HG is he’s so honest. That honesty could have just put all of the guys in hot water as they were positioning to evict Frankie this week from Big Brother 16.
Derrick and Cody were able to convince Caleb that their best plan of action was to turn on Frankie this week will they had the opportunity. It didn’t take much effort for Caleb to agree after Derrick suggested that unless Frankie was on the block he could be tempted to use the Veto on Victoria and force a Derrick-Cody nomination combo. Of course that’s something you shouldn’t repeat to Frankie, right? RIGHT?
Flashback to 9:18PM BBT 9/11 Cams 1/2 (watch it now on the Free Trial) to find Caleb and Frankie alone playing pool. Caleb had previously told Frankie the choice to put him on the block was a fairness issue as Cody had just come down and Derrick couldn’t play in either HoH. Frankie asks Caleb if there are any other reasons he’s on the block. Okay, before we move on, hold your hand in front of your face and lean forward until your face is comfortable cradled in your palm. Now you’re ready to proceed.
It was actually a pretty exciting day on the Big Brother 16 Live Feeds. We got to see the jury come in and trash the house, hear all about the luxury competition and then watch the slow burn of the fallout of the latest nomination ceremony that did not mirror what happened the first time the HGs played this week.
