Big Brother 16 Episode 3 Recap: Nominations And Battle Of The Block Go Down

Big Brother 16 continues to show that it’s ready to be fresh and beat the stigma that attached itself to Big Brother 15. There’s a new opening and a new layer of competition added to what seems to be a fantastic cast. Good job, Big Brother. Let’s hope this momentum sticks.

I will say that I’m not in love with the new opening or the new nomination ceremony, but I’m all for refreshing a show that’s 16 seasons old.

And since there’s a new competition to include, the usual Sunday episode saw some changes, too. We got the “Who wants to see OUR HOH room” right from the start this time and the nomination ceremony happened mid-episode. But let’s back up and start from the beginning of the episode.

Cut to Christine and Nicole on the hammock. It seems the two super fans have bonded. They’re simple girls who shop at Wal-Mart, Christine says, so it’s only natural that they would gravitate toward one another. They’ve decided to work together and for each other.

How Do Big Brother 16 Double HoH Nominations Work?

| June 29, 2014 at 9:30 PM EDT

Say goodbye to the good ol days of a giant round block holding the HGs’ hopes and keys. As of Big Brother 16 it’s been retired in favor of a new nomination reveal system.

Along with the all High-Def cameras and brand new Memory Wall screens this season we’re seeing a whole new way for the Heads of Household to reveal their nominations. Of course several of these changes were necessitated by the existence of twice the HoHs in the first place.

Here’s how the Double HoH nominations work. To avoid nomination overlap, the HoHs must draw a number for draft order. These numbers are drawn from within small wooden eggs kept inside a little glass house. Why not just use the old Pov draw bag? Good question.

Once the order is decided the HoHs move to their separate quarters. HoH who drew #1 gets to pick his or her two noms first. Opening the suitcase of keys, all options are before him or her. The HoH picks out two keys and puts them in a small key holder box.

The briefcase of keys is now handed off to the second HoH who repeats the process albeit with two fewer choices. This way the HoHs can’t pick the same HGs.

First HoH has the advantage of picking from all the HGs, but second HoH has the advantage of seeing who the other HoH already selected. You could adapt your decision based on this information. I’d much rather go second.

Once all keys are placed in the little boxes the HoHs head downstairs together where more changes are waiting in the process.

Joey Van Pelt Cracks The Big Brother 16 Code & Then Her Own Game

| June 29, 2014 at 1:00 PM EDT

Joey Van Pelt came in to the Big Brother 16 house as a complete novice to the series but, after a series of critical mistakes, could be on her way to make a name for herself in the BB record books along the lines of Week 1 evictees, Brian Hart and Keith Henderson. Let’s discuss what went wrong.

When the Feeds first launched we learned Joey had out’d her all-girls alliance as she joked about no one wanting to work with her. She’s since explained that decision away as a “dip s*** move” and one rooted in trying to help her allies escape any consequences of their failed attempt to bond.

Now with an upcoming Veto Ceremony the house has shifted and Joey is in serious danger of being the final target for the week. Unfortunately for her chances of survival, Joey made a very questionable move last night and confronted her own target with bad (but entertaining) results.

After last week’s double premiere event we’ve been eating up all the fun on the Live Feeds and even though we already know all the spoilers for tonight’s episode, starting at 8PM ET/PT on CBS, I am still very excited to see how this new competition event will play out.

The Battle of the Block will pit the four nominees by the two HoHs against each other in a new competition event. The nominees will operate in pairs as decided by their nominating HoH. So Frankie’s noms will play together against Caleb’s noms. The winner of this week’s BotB will come off the block and bring down the nominating HoH with them.

After a calm day Joey started to scramble when she realized how much danger she was in, but what did she do? She dug that hole of danger even deeper. Much, much deeper.

Joey made a house announcement then went to Devin and exposed her plans to get him out. Unfortunately for her this didn’t work like she thought it would.

Find out the highlights from overnight on the Big Brother Live Feeds and get caught up on where the house is headed next. Looks like we’ve got a fun week ahead of craziness.
