It was a quiet morning and afternoon in the Big Brother 16 house. Not a lot went down, but we continue to be convinced that Joey will be heading out the door this week and Devin continues to become a target. Find out what else happened on the Big Brother 16 Live Feeds and see what’s going on as the HGs prepare for the first eviction.
Big Brother 16 Live Feed Highlights – Tuesday, July 1, 2014:
This Thursday the first Big Brother 16 live eviction will take place when one cast member is sent packing with the undesirable title of “1st Eliminated Houseguest.” We’ve been watching the Feeds and know which way the wind is blowing as the votes are readied.
Since Friday after the Veto Competition things seemed pretty set on where they were going. Really even before the comp there was a plan, but more of a backup option. Once all the pieces came together the opportunity was seized and the table was set. Time to feast on the first sacrifice.
Brand new for Big Brother 16 is a Live Feeds subscriber-only voting system that will let those dedicated fans impact the game every week this season. The first voting round has opened, but it won’t last long so open up your Feeds or grab the Free Trial and cast your vote now!
In the preseason we were teased with news that Big Brother fans who were subscribed to the Feeds would have access to an exclusive voting system separate from what’s seen every season as part of CBS.com’s open offerings to fans. Considering online fans are often more invested and naturally more informed than TV-only viewers who only get part of the story, I was anxious to learn more about what sort of impact we could have.
The teaser details hinted at a question on asking Feedsters which HG they wanted to do everyone’s laundry that day, but the first real voted turned out to be Have-Not foods.
During Big Brother 14 Matt Hoffman & I did a live show called Rants & Roars – on it I would do a weekly ranking on each player, giving them each up to 5 strips of Bacon if they had a good week, and up to 5 strips of Tofu if they had a bad week. When Big Brother Network asked me to do a couple of weekly columns, I decided to bring it back – so here we go…
Big Brother 16 Week 1 Rankings:
Amber – 1 strip of Bacon: She has not been seen much on the CBS show, but the live feeds are obsessed with her. No, not because she is beautiful, but because she is all that Caleb talks about. She has been great holding her own probably because she is unaware how crazy in love he is with her.
Brittany – 3 strips of Bacon: Leaving her kids must have been really tough, getting nominated week 1 must have been even tougher. But kicking ass at the BotB to pull herself off earns her some bacon! Also watching her on the feeds the first day, she was cleaning the kitchen & filling the ice trays. Something I did often.
Caleb – 1 strip of Tofu: Winning the 1st (well, 2nd) HoH was good, making safe nominations that did not ruffle the house was also good. So why did he get Tofu? 2 reasons… 1) his infatuation, borderline stalkerish with Amber (“I see the way she looks at me.”) and 2) he not only killed a hog with a stick – but bragged about it on the live feeds. Yes, I know you have to kill pigs to make bacon, but don’t beat your hog & tell everyone about it! He’s lucky he won that HoH or else he’d get 5 strips of Tofu for that alone!
With an alliance of eight Big Brother 16 Houseguests, the Bomb Squad mega-conglomerate was bound to hit some snags. Now with some showmantic (or lack of) drama brewing inside it some of its members wonder when it’s going to explode.
Caleb confessed his burning love for Amber on Sunday night earning him a deflating “thank you” response. Thanks to Devin having a talk with him (1AM BBT), Caleb is coming to slowly, very slowly understand that maybe that didn’t mean she loved him back. Now his over-sized alliance is waiting to see what happens between them and how it could impact their plans.
Cody and Zach were out playing late night pool at 2:30AM BBT when the topic of what could happen. Cody is confident “it doesn’t hurt as all.” Zach is a little more worried and notes that “ever since he came out to her” they haven’t been looking at each other. “That’s bad for us,” explains Zach.
Cody sees what he’s talking about and notes that “his ego is so bad” that he could decide that since he brought Amber in to the alliance then he can take her back out of it at will.
The Big Brother 16 Live Feeds were SLOW last night. I mean slow. Unless you find Caleb talking about Amber exciting. But the weird thing is, this cast is entertaining. So even though there isn’t a ton of game talk or fighting right now, you’ve got Zach busting a move, Frankie’s alter ego Rhinestone Silversmith and Donny’s cricket calls.
So while there weren’t any major game moves last night, there were some pretty solid social moves. Find out what else happened on the Big Brother 16 Live Feeds, including who is expected to head out the door next week!
