When Big Brother 16 is over, we will say this was the season of Coulda Shoulda Woulda. So many big moves planned – and so many safe moves prevailed. People get mad when recruits/non fans are cast, and this season had a lot of superfans (ok, we’ll call them big fans) – and they know that sometimes the best move made are the ones not made.
Fans at home always love to see the big moves because that makes the game exciting to watch, but those big moves could also work against the players in the long run. Remember, the people playing do not have all the info we do, so they are playing based on perception.
Also before I get to the ratings, I also want to say that the Big Brother HG’s have been locked up for 77 days now – away from their loved ones for about 84 or so. While I do not agree with all the things that some of the players say & do – anyone who has never been locked up like that cannot imagine what kind of mindf**k it is. The intense pressure that they are under sometimes brings out the worst in people.
As fans, we are not under the same pressure, so I ask that you think about that before spewing vile comments back at them. We are not forced to watch, we are not forced to listen, we do it because we want to. These people will have to pay for their actions & words when they get out. At the core, Big Brother is a social experiment, both inside & outside the house.
Rant over – now lets see who gets bacon this week – and who gets tofu!
Frankie – 3 strips of Tofu – my pre-ranking rant was based mostly on Frankie. He has gone over the top too many times now for us to ignore, and it’s starting to get to the point where it is truly damaging his game. He was one Beast Mode Conscious decision away from getting backdoored this week. The whispers are getting louder and he sees it coming, but yet instead of trying to mend relationships, he seems more content on playing the villain role.
Does he really think that he will be able to turn those frowns into smiles on the jury member’s faces? They are the ones that truly decide his fate. I would give him an extra strip or 2 of Tofu for not volunteering to be a Have Not this week – but as we have seen, he loves Tofu, so no reward for him.
Derrick – 2 strips of Tofu – while it has not come back to haunt him yet, going for the $5000 Dollas & Hollas during this week’s HoH competition, Derrick has given the rest of the HG’s an excuse to boot him. He is still the mastermind of the house, and the rest of the players do not realize it. They also do not give him credit for it, and perhaps he has been too subtle in his actions – that the jury would not vote for him at the end. Every move (or non move) this season has gone through him, he’s been so deep undercover – if he tries to take credit for it later, will people believe it? Now is the time for him to implement an end game before it’s too late.
Victoria – 1 strip of Tofu – just like her game most of the season, I dont really have much to say about Victoria this week. The $50K insurance policy is still there, back on the block & in no real danger of going home. She should be getting her popcorn ready to watch the final members of the Bomb Squad go after each other after this week. I just fear that something odd will happen during the Double Eviction tomorrow night, and she may be the victim of a knee jerk decision & be sent home.
