I’ve spent the Big Brother summer dissecting and judging the game and its players, but now as the season wraps up I thought it’d be fun to look back at what’s made these HGs memorable. Sure, I’ve given them plenty of grief, but overall they’ve done a great job and given us lots to discuss.
Tossing tomatoes at the Big Brother stage is part of the routine but the season is almost over so let’s give them a round of applause and look at some of their best moments of Big Brother 16.
Joey Van Pelt – Oh Joey, you were our first goodbye of the season and you went out in grand fashion. It’d be tempting to say her “Alex” adventures were her moment, but I have to go with her decision to make a full head-on attack at Devin.
Joey pulled Devin in to the Hive and explained to him his fate, according to Joey. Caleb had said he’d evict according to the House’s wishes and in her eyes the House wanted Devin gone. She told Devin in no uncertain terms that she was gunning for him and he’d be going home. It was a bold and daring move but oh boy did that turn out poorly. Joey was gone just a few days later, but she went out swinging.
Paola Shea – I thought Pao Pao would be our firecracker this season but her time was cut short in the second week. I nearly went with her swing performance in the first Battle of the Block, but then I remembered that other comp.
Before there was “technotronics.” Now there is “caltoru.” Paola’s attempt at spelling during the Veto comp left us scratching our heads but laughing along with her the whole time. It was memorable enough for Pao to get a (questionable) tattoo and enough to make our list too.
Devin Shepherd – Devin came to win with loyalty and honesty. Instead he left Week 3, but not without some serious entertainment for us. Yes, the #DevinHasADaughter became a thing and we heard about it every thirty seconds, but he was a heck of a competitor and his house meetings were crazy. I think Devin would have made a huge splash on the season if he had stayed longer, but it didn’t work out.
