I’ve spent the Big Brother summer dissecting and judging the game and its players, but now as the season wraps up I thought it’d be fun to look back at what’s made these HGs memorable. Sure, I’ve given them plenty of grief, but overall they’ve done a great job and given us lots to discuss.
Tossing tomatoes at the Big Brother stage is part of the routine but the season is almost over so let’s give them a round of applause and look at some of their best moments of Big Brother 16.
Joey Van Pelt – Oh Joey, you were our first goodbye of the season and you went out in grand fashion. It’d be tempting to say her “Alex” adventures were her moment, but I have to go with her decision to make a full head-on attack at Devin.
Joey pulled Devin in to the Hive and explained to him his fate, according to Joey. Caleb had said he’d evict according to the House’s wishes and in her eyes the House wanted Devin gone. She told Devin in no uncertain terms that she was gunning for him and he’d be going home. It was a bold and daring move but oh boy did that turn out poorly. Joey was gone just a few days later, but she went out swinging.
Paola Shea – I thought Pao Pao would be our firecracker this season but her time was cut short in the second week. I nearly went with her swing performance in the first Battle of the Block, but then I remembered that other comp.
Before there was “technotronics.” Now there is “caltoru.” Paola’s attempt at spelling during the Veto comp left us scratching our heads but laughing along with her the whole time. It was memorable enough for Pao to get a (questionable) tattoo and enough to make our list too.
Devin Shepherd – Devin came to win with loyalty and honesty. Instead he left Week 3, but not without some serious entertainment for us. Yes, the #DevinHasADaughter became a thing and we heard about it every thirty seconds, but he was a heck of a competitor and his house meetings were crazy. I think Devin would have made a huge splash on the season if he had stayed longer, but it didn’t work out.
On Wednesday night we’ll get a mix of beginnings and endings as the Survivor 2014 Blood Vs Water season kicks off at 8PM ET/PT with a 90-minute debut. Once that episode ends we’ll be rolling straight in to the Big Brother finale with the Final Three Houseguests starting at 9:30PM ET/PT.
The third round will be held live and decide both the final HoH of the season and the last HG to be evicted and sent out to the Jury. Soon after we’ll learn who won Big Brother 16 along with the hotly contested America’s Favorite Houseguest race likely between Donny and Zach.
While we may be saying goodbye to Big Brother until next summer we are preparing for a new and hopefully awesome season of Survivor! Although it’s tough to cover any other show as in-depth as we do with Big Brother there will still be daily updates and discussions on Survivor along with live recaps and fun chats with other fans.
I hope if you’ve enjoyed our Big Brother coverage then you’ll consider checking out our SurvivorFandom.com fan site and hanging out with us there in the off-season. Amazing to think we’ll have TWO seasons of Survivor before Big Brother 17 arrives!
The Big Brother 16 Hitmen have an important choice ahead for one of them and at this point it’s the only thing they have left to discuss after a season of hard work mixed with lucky breaks for the duo. So which way will things go?
We can break it down in to just two scenarios with two outcomes for each if we’re considering all the possibilities, but talks between the guys have made it easier than that. Here’s what they’ve told each other and the cameras so far.
The Big Brother 16 Final Three had a busy day of eating Panera, taking photos in the photo booth, playing pool and sleeping. But Victoria did spend part of her day begging Derrick or Cody to take her to the final two. Find out what else happened on the Big Brother Feeds in the house yesterday.
Big Brother 16 Live Feed Highlights – Sunday, September 21, 2014:
The Big Brother alumni always seems to have time to get out there and support charity and this weekend was no different. Big Brother 15 alums Elissa Slater and Judd Daugherty along with BB16′s Amber Borzotra joined other reality stars to head to Kansas for a Habitat for Humanity effort.
Judd, Elissa, and Amber were together with past Survivor castaways for the “Reality Racers” team and it looks like they had quite the good time out there. That night they even headed out for some casino fun before packing up for the weekend.
Amber and Elissa are outbound to Los Angeles where Elissa will catch up with Rachel Reilly and then we’ll be seeing Amber soon on Wednesday night’s Big Brother finale.
Check out their group photos and see what the former Big Brother HGs were up to this weekend.
Reminder that tonight on CBS there will not be an episode of Big Brother. BB16 is down to just one show left in the whole season when it returns on Wednesday night at 9:30PM ET/PT for the finale show following the 90-minute premiere of Survivor.
The annual “Memory Lane” episode aired on Friday night and despite Julie’s promises we did not get to watch the first round of the Final HoH. We only got to see maybe a minute of it with the rest on Wednesday. We’ve also already got the HoH Round 2 spoilers here. Read our recap of Friday’s episode.
Live Feed continues to roll inside the Big Brother house as the Final 3 prepare for Wednesday night. The second round of the Final HoH is over, check those spoilers, and that leaves just one last comp and a final decision to evict before the Jury casts their votes. The season is almost over!
