Big Brother twists have a knack for imploding like an unprepared Houseguest in the first week of the game. So when Big Brother 16 set up “Team America” with a three-week slow boil I started to wonder what would happen if its members start getting evicted before they’re even gathered together for the first time. Cue Joey’s first week in the house. Guess what’s likely to happen?
While I questioned the choice of a complete Big Brother novice as the top pick as America’s ally other’s pointed out that most of these votes are a popularity contest and Joey came off as very popular. They’re right. Joey was very friendly and I liked her a lot as a person during our interview, but I wouldn’t want to rely on her inside the house. I don’t wanna say I was told ya so, but…
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.
After Saturday night’s craziness with Joey learning the Big Brother ropes I wasn’t sure what they’d have left in them for Sunday. Luckily the Veto Ceremony arrived early and kept the HGs on their toes for what comes next on Big Brother 16.
Houseguests were up early, well early when you consider they went to bed just a few hours earlier, and put on their game faces as the Veto winner had a big, but easy choice to make. From there the final nominees this week set off on securing votes and their safety.
Find out the highlights from overnight on the Big Brother Live Feeds and get caught up on where the house is headed next. Looks like we’ve got a week of sneakiness ahead.
Big Brother 16 Live Feed Highlights – Sunday, June 29, 2014:
Big Brother 16 continues to show that it’s ready to be fresh and beat the stigma that attached itself to Big Brother 15. There’s a new opening and a new layer of competition added to what seems to be a fantastic cast. Good job, Big Brother. Let’s hope this momentum sticks.
I will say that I’m not in love with the new opening or the new nomination ceremony, but I’m all for refreshing a show that’s 16 seasons old.
And since there’s a new competition to include, the usual Sunday episode saw some changes, too. We got the “Who wants to see OUR HOH room” right from the start this time and the nomination ceremony happened mid-episode. But let’s back up and start from the beginning of the episode.
Cut to Christine and Nicole on the hammock. It seems the two super fans have bonded. They’re simple girls who shop at Wal-Mart, Christine says, so it’s only natural that they would gravitate toward one another. They’ve decided to work together and for each other.

Say goodbye to the good ol days of a giant round block holding the HGs’ hopes and keys. As of Big Brother 16 it’s been retired in favor of a new nomination reveal system.
Along with the all High-Def cameras and brand new Memory Wall screens this season we’re seeing a whole new way for the Heads of Household to reveal their nominations. Of course several of these changes were necessitated by the existence of twice the HoHs in the first place.
Here’s how the Double HoH nominations work. To avoid nomination overlap, the HoHs must draw a number for draft order. These numbers are drawn from within small wooden eggs kept inside a little glass house. Why not just use the old Pov draw bag? Good question.
Once the order is decided the HoHs move to their separate quarters. HoH who drew #1 gets to pick his or her two noms first. Opening the suitcase of keys, all options are before him or her. The HoH picks out two keys and puts them in a small key holder box.
The briefcase of keys is now handed off to the second HoH who repeats the process albeit with two fewer choices. This way the HoHs can’t pick the same HGs.
First HoH has the advantage of picking from all the HGs, but second HoH has the advantage of seeing who the other HoH already selected. You could adapt your decision based on this information. I’d much rather go second.
Once all keys are placed in the little boxes the HoHs head downstairs together where more changes are waiting in the process.
The PoV meeting arrived early this week as the HGs adjust to a new schedule and are actually on Day 10 inside the house. The current Head of Household has made his intentions clear so if you’ve been following our updates or the Feeds then there won’t be a big surprise ahead.
