After Thursday night’s live eviction and wild Returning Juror comp the Big Brother 16 Houseguests were left without a new Head of Household in the new phase of the season with just one Head of Household. The competition was held and we have the results of who won HoH last night.
The HGs were on an indoor lockdown after the show while production deconstructed the “Comeback Fight” competition from the evicted HGs. With that out of the way the remaining seven eligible Houseguests, everyone but Frankie as outgoing HoH, faced off and the stakes were high.
As soon as the Live Feeds returned we heard Derrick telling all the guys, minus Donny, that NO ONE was allowed to speak privately with Nicole and that she would be the new target alongside Donny. So unless one of those two won the plan would be simple and the returning HG would be wasted.
Big Brother 16 – Week 9 Head of Household:
We’ve already see three of the four spots in tonight’s Jury competition with Jocasta Odom, Hayden Voss, and Nicole Franzel previously evicted from the house. During tonight’s show we expect to see Zach Rance join their ranks and battle it out.
So who will win their way back in for a second chance? The competition looks to pit all four players against one another instead of a jumbo-sized endurance competition like in last season of Big Brother.
In past weeks Nicole proved to be a very strong HoH competitor with several wins while Hayden has one Veto and one near-win HoH as well. Jocasta has won a BotB herself. Zach has had his own wins but will the adrenaline from his recent eviction give him the edge?
Yes! Zach was evicted and is now part of the Jury and will compete in tonight’s challenge. One of them will get back in the game. Let’s find out who!
Big Brother 16: Who Came Back From Jury? – Results:
Tonight on Big Brother 16 the spoiler results for this week’s eviction and HoH competition will be revealed as one HG will be sent to the returning Juror comp and one HG will be crowned HoH.
We’re about to see Jocasta, Hayden, and Nicole return to the Big Brother house as they face off in this four-way battle along with this week’s evicted HG which will likely be Zach.
As for how the next HoH gets decided, that should be interesting since last year this round was an endurance, but we’ve seen none of those in-season yet. Should it be an endurance comp then you’ll need the Live Feeds to watch. Don’t have them yet? Get the Free Trial now!
We pick up with Zach going up on the block as a renom but he doesn’t realize he’s been the target for awhile by Frankie. Of course TV-only viewers won’t know that either. Frankie has been itching for nearly two months to get Zach out.
Along with Zach’s Team America troubles, which did not at all contribute to his pending eviction, we see Victoria destroy the pink hat Zach wore all summer long. It was her hat and yes, she destroyed her own belongings. She says it was her most satisfying moment of the season. Hmm.
The HGs learn the Battle of the Block twist is over. No one seems surprised.
Big Brother 16 Week 8 Votes:
- Derrick votes to evict: Zach
- Christine votes to evict: Zach
- Donny votes to evict: Zach
- That’s enough votes. Zach has been evicted.
- Caleb votes to evict: Zach
- Victoria votes to evict: Zach
Zach Rance has been evicted 5-0. Before Julie can even announce the results Zach stands up on the coffee table and starts tossing candy or Froot Loops at the HGs. Julie is laughing. He comes out to a roaring crowd and has a great interview with Julie. Easily the most energized interview of the season and you can tell she’s enjoying the talk.
Now Zach will face off against Jocasta, Hayden, and Nicole to return. We are low on time so I highly doubt we’ll get this returning Juror comp and the HoH comp. The HoH comp will have to spill over to Sunday’s show, but we’ll get the results from the Live Feeds!
Big Brother 16 Week 9 Returning Juror Comp – “Comeback Fight”:
Last season there was one large jumbo endurance competition where all competed together, but that will not be the case this time around. Instead the four Jury HGs will face off in their own competition, but as for what happens to the winner is still not known.

From what we can see the four evicted HGs will be set up in a simultaneous battle which looks like shuffleboard of sorts. How it works is a guess, but you can see the rings in the center. I’ll speculate they slide markers down their lanes and try to get close to the middle with the chance to knock out others along with getting their own markers knocked out.
I think they could end up with more than one marker since there’s a basket behind them in the mock-up, but that’s another point to consider. This is a mock-up and while they’re usually very close to the finished product it is no guarantee.
Also notice the boxing ring style ropes around the game field. We’ve had “knockout” themed set ups like this before, but that could just be for the hype of the event rather than anything to do with what’s involved in the competition.
This one could really be a toss-up. Would Jocasta coming back get you excited? No? You want Zach or Nicole maybe? Share your thoughts!
Donny Thompson is easily one of the most aware and observant Houseguests on Big Brother 16, but unfortunately that knowledge has been coupled with a stunted social game and lack of true alliances. With the writing clearly visible on the wall and those same walls closing in, Donny made a valiant effort to find an ally this week. Unfortunately, his options weren’t too receptive.
On Tuesday Donny caught up with Cody while everyone else was asleep. Flashback to around 10:20AM BBT 8/19 to watch their lengthy talk. I was highly doubtful of its potential, but what else has Donny got to lose? Donny did what he could to try and convince Cody that he was being used as a pawn in Derrick’s game and Derrick has F2 with everyone in there. Donny also points out that Frankie has Caleb under his control.
Cody leaves and whispers under his breath that Donny is wrong about everything. Actually, he was pretty darn spot on with most of it. Later that night Cody told Derrick that he needed to tell him about his talk with Donny. But then the weird thing was he never gave Derrick the details, he just let it go. Well, at least on Tuesday he did.
Wednesday afternoon around 12:20 PM BBT Donny sits with Christine and has a very similar talk with her. I have even less faith in the potential here. Donny gives her his reasoning on why she should team up with him rather than going out on the bottom of the totem pole.
Let’s be honest. Christine has no one here. She thinks she has Cody, but Cody is much tighter with Derrick. She thinks she has Frankie, but Frankie would definitely pick Caleb over her. Christine is the odd-HG out and she’s lining herself up to be Britney’d. She doesn’t see it though.
Not long after (2:35PM BBT) Christine runs to Cody, jumps in his bed with a big hug of course, and then tells him everything. It’s only at this point that Cody reveals he’s had the same talk with Donny. Derrick is sleeping in the bed next to them and around 3:10PM BBT they tell Derrick what’s been going on.
Alliance Meeting time! Jump to 3:32PM BBT as Derrick, Cody, Caleb, Frankie, and Christine gather in the HoH room to discuss. Cody spills all the beans but it’s interesting that he uses the cover story that Donny suggested in case anyone came out back on Tuesday: he just got up to brush his teeth.
There will be just five votes up for grab so no tie-breaker tonight, but the evictee could come back with the twist! Right now it looks like Zach will get that chance while Cody will skate past his very first trip to the Block, but nothing is official until Julie announces the vote.
