Usually the drama on Saturdays for Big Brother come from the Power of Veto competition, but this week it was all about Victoria being found crumpled up on the toilet stall floor. Feeds cut and Victoria was gone for hours before returning to the game.
Later Team America got its new mission: choose your own adventure. Donny said they should save him. Frankie said, no, let’s put on a play. I’m not kidding. So it was all going to rest on Donny’s chances at winning the Power of Veto.
Find out what else happened on the Big Brother Feeds in the house yesterday.
Big Brother 16 Live Feed Highlights – Saturday, August 23, 2014:
The Big Brother 16 Power of Veto competition is over and we have the results! Donny Thompson is the main target this week and the PoV was his shot at safety, but could he overcome a house against him?
Flashback to 12:31 PM BBT to find Donny and Derrick in the Storage room. Donny has been given the details of their next opportunity and is passing it along to Derrick while Frankie sleeps away.
Donny tells Derrick that this week America has voted to allow Team America to set its own mission. Okay, hold up. We know America did not vote for this. So did A) production embellish this element, B) Donny embellish, or C) Donny just assumed it was a voted-on event since the rest were.
Note: I am not questioning if this is a legitimate mission, but rather wondering just how it was described by DR to Donny. I do not think Donny would be allowed to lie about a mission.
Big Brother 16: Victoria Rafaeli Medical Emergency – Found On Bathroom Floor & Live Feeds Cut – Update| August 23, 2014 at 2:45 PM EDT
On Friday Victoria made several trips to the Diary Room asking Big Brother for assistance with concerns that she was having problems with her wisdom teeth. This morning the issue escalated when Nicole Franzel found Victoria laying on the floor of the toilet stall.
Earlier Derrick commented to Christine that Victoria was in such bad shape from her tooth pain that he did not think she’d be able to compete in the Veto.
Flashback to 11:12AM BBT Cams 1/2 to find Victoria walking to the bathroom where Nicole is preparing for the day. Two minutes later Nicole becomes aware of a problem and goes to the stall door. She asks if Victoria is okay. “No,” responds Victoria. Nicole asks if she needs something but when no response comes she goes and opens the door to find Victoria laying on the floor.
Nicole asks Victoria if she’s okay and notes how sweaty Victoria is. Nicole immediately shouts out to Derrick that they need to get help. Derrick runs towards the bathroom at 11:15AM BBT and the Feeds cuts.
Currently it is 30 minutes later and the Feeds have not returned. (Updates below.)
I will continue to monitor the situation and report any updates. I do not know what would happen if someone had to leave the game permanently, but HGs have in the past left the house temporarily for medical attention and re-entered the House. Let’s keep Victoria in our thoughts right now and hope she’s able to come back soon and feel better.
Update: Feeds returned at 11:58AM BBT. Victoria is not present. HGs are sitting around the kitchen table. Still waiting for details.
Update 2: Victoria is back! At 1:56PM BBT Victoria came back in to the house through the DR door. She explained to Christine that she received an IV for the pain and the dehydration. Victoria says she has more medicine coming for her.
If her name is drawn for the Power of Veto competition today then they’ll figure that out later. Reminder: Jocasta was too ill to play in Veto earlier in the season so 5 instead of 6 HGs competed. It sounds like the comp will not be delayed. Players have still not been picked.
Confirmed: If Victoria is drawn for the PoV then she will not participate & there will be only 5 players.
With Cody at the helm and Derrick holding the reins, many Big Brother fans are expecting a mild week, but what’s this? Cody is considering a Frankie renom scenario? Let’s see how far Derrick lets that ride.
Here we’ve got Cody in the HoH room and Derrick joining him to discuss an idea. What if, Cody proposes, he puts up Frankie should Donny come down with the Power of Veto? “Ohh, you’re talking big boy moves!” says Derrick. Heh.
Friday night offered up the Big Brother 16 nominations and a lot of Donny bashing. Christine hates Donny on a personal level and thinks him evil while Cody can’t wait to physically attack Donny in the Jury house. It’s a great bunch in there!
Booze did find its way in to the house the night before a critical competition as we await the Power of Veto results coming up on Saturday. From the talks we’re hearing there could be a shift, but only if Derrick allows his student to make it. Find out what else happened on the Big Brother Feeds in the house yesterday.
