Nicole is back in the Big Brother 16 house! So that means Donny has a new ally and that the Detonators might finally be at risk! Right? No. Not at all. Despite the possibility, we just get more of the same this week.
The episode picks up right after Nicole won the jury competition. Hayden tells her to go after Derrick and Cody and she says “OK.”
And only Donny is excited to see Nicole back in the house. Everyone else is just stone-faced and already thinking about getting her and Donny out. Christine is the most worried, however, because she’s the one that backstabbed her and sent her out the door last week. Cody tries to express his concerns, but he sounds like someone who just learned English, so I think he isn’t too happy either. But I’ll let you know for sure later if that’s what he said if I can find a translator.
Donny fills Nicole in on all the dirty garbage that has gone on in the short week that she’s been gone. But he’s doing so in front of Victoria and she goes to tell godfather Derrick. And Donny knows she’s going to tell them and he doesn’t care.
Yesterday on the Big Brother 16 Feed it looked like there might be an opening for Donny Thompson. Team America received a new open-ended mission that would allow them to choose their own goal, even possibly saving one of their own missions.
After bringing the details to Derrick and Frankie Donny was sure to suggest to each of them that they could make this very easy and simply vote to keep him. Each of them would pocket a cool five thousand dollars for working to keep Team America together, argues Donny.
Frankie & Derrick got together and immediately rejected the idea of simply throwing the Veto comp to Donny as Donny had proposed. Later on, post Veto comp, Team America had another meeting and things continued to look bad for Donny.
Big Brother 16 is back tonight on CBS and picks up the storyline where we left off on Thursday with the return of Nicole who just barely eeked out a win to return after facing off in the Juror Comp. Now that she’s back, can she do some damage to the majority alliance or will they get her again?
With Nicole back in the house she’s a line of support for Donny who was this week’s target heading in to things, but there are several opportunities for safety. Tonight we’ll see how the HoH goes and then Veto results will be part of the Wednesday episode.
The latest Head of Household competition was held late Thursday night and from what we heard the final two players were very, very close. As one HG described it, less than a second apart decided the fate of this entire week. Frustrating when you let that sink in.
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.
Note, this is our first week without a Battle of the Block event on Sunday’s show which means there is little new content other than seeing the nomination ceremony itself. Sort of a bummer. I know many viewers didn’t like the BotB, but at least it made Sunday shows worth watching. Though I guess we get the HoH comp this week. I wonder if they’ll delay things next week to make that Sunday’s episode enticing as well.
Join us tonight at 8PM ET to chat with other fans as we enjoy the latest Big Brother episode.
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.
