Big Brother 16: Final Battle Of The Block Competition Today

| August 15, 2014 at 12:00 PM EDT

The final Battle of the Block arrives today on Big Brother 16 as four Houseguests will face off one last time for a week of complete safety. Get ready to say farewell to the BB16 twist.

During Thursday night’s live eviction show, host Julie Chen revealed that just one Battle remained as the season’s twist would come to an end with the crowning of Derrick and Frankie as the latest Heads of Household. Their pairs of nominees will battle it out on Friday afternoon and then we’ll say goodbye to this game changer. It’s almost as if production couldn’t let go until they finally saw an HoH go from the top power to a nominee and, in this case, an evictee.

I know a lot of fans have not liked the BotB twist, but I’ve actually enjoyed having it around and am glad it gave us so much to talk about. In past seasons we’ve spent Friday’s going through the boring routine of “the King (or Queen) will see you now” as HGs drone on with flimsy deals and offers before we finally get the nominations late in to the evening.

Diary Room: Adam Poch Looks Ahead To Week 8 On Big Brother 16

| August 15, 2014 at 11:00 AM EDT

It took 8 weeks, but Big Brother finally got the results they were hoping for when they announced someone who won HoH could also go home the same week. Sadly for us it was Nicole who was so sweet & genuine, but in this game, those are not always great qualities. So now she is off to the Jury house for a week & will be able to compete to get back into the house along with Jocasta, Hayden, and whoever is evicted next.

For the 4th time in Big Brother 16 Frankie won HoH and he is paired with Derrick who won for the 2nd time this year. With only 8 people left, half the house will be on the block tomorrow – the question at hand is who will be going up. Derrick promised his little safety net Victoria she was 100% safe. But depending on how this week plays out – she can always end up going up &/or go home.

Derrick & Frankie promised not to back door each other (how did that work out for Nicole & Christine last week???) and I think they are serious about that as they are part of Team America. There is still money to be made, but they also need to keep Donny around for it to work. This will be a problem since Donny is Public Enemy #1 for everyone else in the Detonators+1.

Derrick promised the live feeders there would be fireworks once the HoH reveal was over – and they would all get together to discuss how to go about the nominations this week. Before hand, Derrick & Frankie came up with a plan (well, Derrick did) where they would try to make sure Derrick remained HoH this week – since they think next week will be endurance – and Frankie would have a better shot at winning that. This puts Derrick in a tough spot as he will be vulnerable.

Team America Gets A Sillier Set Of Missions On Big Brother 16

| August 15, 2014 at 10:00 AM EDT

After weeks of Team America missions seemingly tailored to ruin Zach Rance’s game to put cash in the alliance’s pockets things are taking a turn for the silly with TA’s latest mission vote now open.

Maybe it was the series of failed attempts by Derrick, Donny, and Frankie, but this week’s vote for Team America offers up some much less damaging games to be played in the house.

Mission A: Create a distraction by hiding a favorite piece of clothing from each Houseguest then organize a neighborhood watch program to keep it from happening again.

Mission B: Weaken another player’s game by keeping them awake for 24 hours straight.

The first option is way easier and just requires them to snag five items from around the house without anyone noticing. From there they get people to say they’ll watch for the thievery and *bam!* that’s $5K for each of them.

Big Brother 16 – Week 8 Nomination Anticipation: Taste The Rainbow

| August 15, 2014 at 9:00 AM EDT

The Big Brother 16 power alliances retained control of the game again last night when both HoH seats went to a Detonator. Now they’ll have to make some tough decisions that will force them to nominate their own players to make their next move.

With Derrick Levasseur and Frankie Grande holding on to power in last night’s “Dead of Household” competition the target was quickly set on Donny Thompson. The group agreed that Victoria Rafaeli would stand as the renom backup plan should Donny save himself with the Veto, but I think we all know Derrick will fight that before it happens.

In their first discussion the guys agreed that Victoria would not go up on the block and they would instead use three of their own from The Detonators + Caleb to control the situation. One player would be paired with Donny to throw the competition while the other two would fight to win and leave Donny in the danger zone. Zach Rance was the initial volunteer to go up with Donny, but that didn’t last long.

I’m back again to give you my random thoughts on what has been happening in the BB house and what we have watched on the show. I have to admit that after the episode ended Sunday with kind of a cliffhanger with Frankie saying its time that he tells the house who his sister is I was a little annoyed.

I was thinking that Wednesday’s episode was going to be the Frankie Extravaganza! Thankfully I was wrong for the most part and they talked about it for a small portion of the show and I was excited that when I watched the diary room sessions most of the houseguests were a little annoyed by it but it was scary that it shook Nicole up a bit thinking that America would hate her for wanting him gone. I hope that by hearing the cheers when she was evicted it will eliminate any anxiety the houseguests have of nominating Frankie.

Big Brother 16 Live Feeds: Week 8 Thursday Night Highlights

| August 15, 2014 at 7:10 AM EDT


Another week down in the Big Brother 16 house and another week with the same group in power. But the night wasn’t as boring as one might think. That’s because the big alliance has to put up at least three of their own for their plan this week to work. So watching that all play out was pretty entertaining. Find out what else happened on the Big Brother Feeds in the house yesterday.
