After facing some more challenging missions, well kinda challenging, Team America ended up with a gimme $5K in its lap this week when viewers sent them a new task.
Derrick received word on Friday night that America had assigned them a mission to spot a fictional mouse and keep the rest of the House, three other people, awake overnight in hunt of the interloping rodent.
The details given to Derrick and relayed to Frankie explained they couldn’t let anyone fall asleep before 6AM or they’d “risk” failing the mission, so no not really. They were also told that they could start it whenever they wanted as long as they reached the 6AM marker. Sheesh.
After HGs were allowed to sleep until late afternoon they started discussing staying up overnight. Bingo. Easy peasy $5K. Derrick and Frankie decide to wait until 3AM to give it a go which means they just have to keep eyes open for 3 hours. Yeah.
Flashback to 3:22AM BBT 9/7 as Frankie lets out a shriek and the mission is underway. HGs suggest it’s a mouse or a rat. Cody freaks out and jumps up on the bar stools as he’s terrified of rats. Of course he is.
HGs make their own mouse traps and production even plays along when they go in to DR and ask for real traps. Derrick even gets back out the headlamps they used during the Saboteur/Screw-Zach mission from the other week.
Caleb is determined to catch the mouse and stays on the hunt with Derrick. Victoria starts to fall asleep but Derrick pulls her back to the task and she returns to hang out in the kitchen.
6AM BBT rolls around as Frankie and Cody play pool while Derrick, Caleb, and Victoria all head in to the DR together to record a segment on their efforts. And just like that the mission is over and I’m not really sure what they did, but the money is theirs on this one and CBS has a new segment to run on Tuesday.
Big Brother 16 is back tonight on CBS at 8PM ET/PT with the Head of Household competition held late Thursday night and a lot more things you’ll want to see.
Along with the HoH competition and nominations, there will be several special events in tonight’s show including the Big Brother Rewind twist segment where we get to see how the HGs decide to handle the mysterious button.
Jeff & Jordan also arrive with some fun news for their fans… they’re engaged! The Big Brother couple finally took the plunge this weekend when they stopped by for a surprise visit for the HGs and then Jordan got a surprise of her own when Jeff popped the question. That whole segment will be shown tonight, but for now we’ve got pictures for you of the newly engaged couple and Jordan’s diamond ring.
Can’t wait to find out who who wins HoH & who goes on the block? I have those Big Brother spoilers right now if you want to get ahead of tonight’s show.
Saturdays in the Big Brother house are usually tense with anxious HGs awaiting the game impacting Power of Veto. This week wasn’t so tense as HGs slept the day away as the guys felt assured they could stomp out their female competitor.
Later the next Team America mission went in to effect as Derrick and Frankie worked to keep HGs awake until 6AM looking for a mouse. Considering they slept all day and said they’d stay up until sunrise anyway this was a bit silly.
Find out what else happened on the Big Brother Feeds in the house yesterday.
Big Brother 16 Live Feed Highlights – Saturday, September 6, 2014:
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 of “not that it matters.” The HGs might not know it, but everything they’re doing this week will be nullified in just a few more days.
Yesterday we learned that Jeff & Jordan are engaged after a surprise visit to the Big Brother 16 house where Jeff Schroeder popped the question to his long time girlfriend, Jordan Lloyd. But other than a few glances we didn’t have an up-close few of the ring. Now we do.
CBS released a video of Jeff going to the jeweler to pick up Jordan’s ring just a few days before he gave it to her. Jeff says he’s very nervous when he goes to pick up the ring and jokes that there’s no turning back now, but not that he’d want to.
Check out the zoomed in shots of Jeff getting the big diamond ring for Jordan. It’s huge! I’m thinking the jeweler helped out here in exchange for some promotional time through CBS. Nothing wrong with that as I’m sure Jordan would agree!
What do you all think? Did Jeff make a good pick for his newly minted fiancee?
The Power of Veto competition will be held on Saturday afternoon in the Big Brother house and with just five Houseguests left in the race there aren’t many options for what could happen next. All the same, HGs are plotting and scheming even if none of it matters at all.
Only two Houseguests remain “safe” and off the block this week with two more nominated and one sitting as HoH. Should either of the “safe” Houseguests win the Veto today and decides to use it then the other one would be forced into becoming this week’s renom.
Last night Derrick spoke with Cody about that very possibility and how they should handle it if the opportunity arises.
