Joey Scrambles....Spills the News About her Secret #BB16

Joey spoke with Christine earlier this morning and asked for her vote.  Christine told her that people might be afraid to vote against the house at this point in the game, for fear of being targeted.  Christine encouraged her to meet with people and offer them incentives to keep her in the house.

So, Joey went to Caleb, who was sitting in one of the eviction chairs noisily chomping on an apple.  She kind of awkwardly offered to keep Caleb safe in the house, pointing out that she would be a better competitor than Paola and has better chances to win competitions.

Joey:  And when you asked for Have Not volunteers, I raised my hand.

Caleb:  I appreciated that..

Joey:  And I can volunteer to do it again, in place of someone else...

Caleb basically said he would take all of this into consideration, but she can't expect him to go around and recruit votes on her behalf without doing the same for Pao Pao.

During this conversation, Hayden was laying face down on the couch, like a sack of potatoes.  After Caleb left, he turned over and told Joey that he had never heard any of that before, but if she said the same thing to him, he would consider voting for her to stay.



Hayden:  You should have that same conversation with everyone....I would much rather you stay than Paola, but you need to start talking to everyone...

Joey:  I just don't know this game, I'm learning...


Joey:  I have other things to offer, but I can't tell you about them yet.....

Hayden:  Huh?

Joey swore him to secrecy and he promised to keep it quiet.

Joey:  I was voted America's Favorite....and there's going to be three of us..

Hayden:  So what does that mean?  What can you do?


Joey made it clear that she really doesn't know yet, but told him that the power doesn't start until this Thursday.  Hayden promised to keep it quiet.

Do you think he will keep it quiet?


Joey went into The Hive and woke Zach up to talk to him.  She told him she needed his vote, and made the point about having more to offer than Pao Pao.  Joey did not tell him about the America's Team, but Zach coached her on what to say, and how to present the argument.


Zach encouraged her to make her case to Caleb and Devin, because no one wants to make enemies of them and Caleb is "going to win HoH every other week".

Zach:  And a lot can happen before Thursday.....Paola can say something stupid to Caleb, and she leaves all kinds of dishes in the sink, and Devin is very easily influenced....

Joey:  I'm on good terms with Devin.


Zach:  Well, everyone is going to vote with the house, and right now the house may want you to leave, but the whole thing can turn on a dime and change.

Cody Looks Good, but Talks Too Much #BB16

He is rocking in the hammock with Christine and talking about the game and the players.  He said he likes Frankie, but Frankie is playing the game really hard right now.

Cody:  Frankie likes that everyone is showing him all of their cards, but he's not sharing all of it.  I'm careful when I talk to him not to give him too much, because if he knows what I'm thinking he could use it against me.

Christine:  Uh huh....um hmmm.


They say winning the PoV at this point kind of sucks because you really can't use it or else you will show too many of your cards..

Cody:  But I would use it to save Derrick....I just can't lose him in this game right now

Christine: Uh huh....um hmmmm.


CODY SHUT UP!  Christine was telling her secret BFF Frankie last night that she thought Cody was too close to Derrick!



Cody's dad is a BB fanatic and told Cody he was worried about the season being stacked with BB veterans.

Cody:  He was like, sorry, but all the vets are saying they want to play, but they want to get paid more...and Julie said it would be the twistiest summer ever!

Christine:  I know!  My mom said Julie Chen said it would be twist after twist after twist..

Cody was shocked that there were two HoH's---he never would have guessed that.  He is glad they get to eat at midnight on Thursday---that gives him at least one day to eat nutritious food until there is another group of Have Nots.




You're welcome, Cody fans.

Rise and Shine...and Whine #BB16

Amber has a sunny disposition today....not a care in the world, it seems.  (Caleb confessed his feelings for her last night, and she made fun of him later --see the link about halfway down the page.)


Derrick got called in the DR and came out pretty quickly.  His baby daughter had some sort of surgery this morning.  Derrick said previously that it was scheduled before he came in the house, so hopefully it is nothing too serious.  He came out of the WC and told the girls that "it's all over" and gave the impression that everything is fine.

Can you imagine if Devin's daughter had surgery?  With the way he carried on about her just having a birthday?

Devin actually came in the bathroom and talked to the girls about Derrick's daughter, saying it is a relief that everything is fine.

Devin:  Can you imagine?  While you're in here?

(I'm sure those girls are all thinking the same thing that I'm thinking about having to listen to Devin obsess about that...)



Maybe Amber shouldn't try to look so purty today, right?  And maybe she should stop giving Caleb all of those looks...



Amber is assisting Nicole with her skin and makeup this summer in a very helpful way.


Brittany took a cold shower and didn't enjoy it very much, from the sound of things.  Big Brother told everyone to prepare for an outdoor lockdown and she groaned, trying to hurry.




A line quickly formed for the WC, since there is no bathroom outside.



Hayden said Pao Pao could go in before he did.  In fact, he recommended that.  Nice of him.


Meanwhile, the Sweet Angel catches a quick nap.


CBS spelled Jocosta's name wrong in the opening credits of the show last night. Or else they've been spelling wrong in the preseason....




So Let's Catch Up With the Big Story From Last Night...... #BB16

But First.....I took the following pictures yesterday afternoon but didn't get to post them.  I know people like the bikini shots so better late than never, I guess.

Brittany certainly does not look like she popped out three kids.  That is a definite advantage to having your children while you are young...your skin is very elastic and just snaps right back in place.




This is as close as Derrick got to tanning yesterday (although I certainly might have missed some action).  He came out and plopped down on the backyard couch , covering himself with a towel and said something along the lines of "at least I'm getting some sun now...".

Not necessarily, Derrick.  I am not a police officer and know nothing about blood coagulation or felony statutes, but I am a former Beach Bunny and minored in Professional Tanning.  So I can assure Derrick this method of tanning will not be effective.

Derrick and Cody are becoming fast friends and it may be a little too obvious to everyone that something is going on there.  Plus, Jeff Schroeder is going to be jealous.



At one point Donny came outside in his swim trunks and said that at home his girlfriend is probably at home saying, "every time Brittany is outside sunning Donny goes out there" and all of the guys laughed.




OK, fast forward to Flashbacks from last night.  I heard Caleb confessed his feelings to Amber so I'm looking for that (around 2:00 am) but of course I stopped when I saw Derrick.

I guess he did get a little color outside today.  I'm big enough to admit that.


The Have Nots got some bad news last night.  They had been putting blankets over the beds to make them warmer but in the DR they were told that they can't do that anymore---the beds need to be clear of items before they lay down.

The Have Not situation hasn't even been covered on the CBS show yet---so Production has to be sure they get enough footage to be able to explain the horrors of being a Have Not to America.  So I'm guessing they need some more footage of shivering in bed, etc.

The worst time to be a Have Not is the first week of the game, because the rules are much stricter and America doesn't vote to give them additional foods to eat (like Liver & Lollipops or Bok Choy & Baby Food).  Plus they are feeling lethargic during the crucial first days of the game, but they do form very strong bonds with the other Have Nots who they may not be aligned with---this could help them later on in the game.


Zach and Cody laughed about how Victoria thinks Cody is into her.  Zach said her face is busted but she has a nice body and he could tell that Cody was tempted.  Victoria told Derrick that something was up because "Cody wasn't talking to her".  Derrick, Cody and Zach say one of them has to win HoH next week.

(I think their alliance name is "Jump Street", which is pretty funny since Derrick worked undercover.)

Zach thinks Amber will throw comps because no one in the house would put her up on the block.  Derrick thinks there will be two separate HoH competitions.


Joey came in to complain about having to move her clothes again but they end up thanking Big Brother for letting them bend the rules for a few days.


Zach and Cody stayed behind in the room when everyone left and they talk about how bad they want to win HoH.  They whisper about putting Victoria, Jocasta, or Donny up.

Zach:  After week five...me, you and Derrick.....

Cody:  Yeah...we'll just clean up!

Brittany came in and then left the room.  Cody said she "had, like an attitude, and he loves it".  He thinks she's on to his game because she knows he's aligned with the guys.  Zach said that next week when Cody is HoH....(made hand signals to indicate Cody will hit that).  Then they acknowledge that Brittany is a mother so that would be inappropriate.  They can't believe all of the shoes that Brittany brought in the house.


OK, here we go.  Caleb has summoned Amber to the HoH Room for a little chat.  Amber is perched on the Bird's Nest Bed as far away as she can get, without falling out of the nest.

Caleb:  I like you.  OK?  We've already done gone over most of this already.  I'm not looking for a showmance and neither are you.

Amber:  Right.

Caleb:  Showmances are for a short time and for 9 million people to see and then it's over, and that's not what  I want.  I don't know if I'm seeing what I'm seeing....I haven't had this conversation in like, 4 years.....I am attracted to you in ways beyond that you are drop-dead gorgeous...I see you reading the Bible and giving people Scripture and that attracts me to you...

(I may vomit.  Seriously.)

Amber:  Is that a good thing?

Caleb:  Yes!

Amber:  Then thank you for the compliment.


Caleb:  I don't know...but there is one thing I do know..you look at me a certain way, and I know you feel the same way....am I wrong?

Amber:  I don't know.  I look at everybody a lot.

Caleb:  Well, people have told me that you look at me in a certain way.  Everybody sees it.  And there is this vibe between us....of course not now, but when this is all over...

Amber:  This is, like, news to me...

Caleb:  This is news?  Well, you know I was attracted to you at the gym (in sequester?) but then when I seen how you really are, I saw you were a lot different than I seen you to be...

(The preceeding statement by Caleb was not altered by me for comedic purposes.  I swear.  As they say, "check the tape".)

Caleb:  Pao Pao told me to wait, but I don't want to wait.  There might be a twist and one of us could be gone and then I won't see you no more....hopefully when this is all over I can stay out here and take you out on a big-time date...have some dinner...maybe see a freaking movie or something...I don't know...I don't know nothin' about California.

Amber:  You're all giddy.

Caleb:  I haven't given a speech like this in a long time. I want to know a lot more about you then I know now.  I don't know why people are sayin' what they're sayin' right now...

Amber:  We're in a house right now with nothing to do but get to know each other.

Caleb:  I feel like people see it, and there nothing we've done to make them see it like that, but I know every time I walk into a room, you leave, and I think you do it so people won't see it...

Amber:  I'm sorry...do I do that?  Leave the room?

Caleb:  I think it's your security...you don't want to put a target on yourself...while I was here I just wanted to tell you how I feel...

Amber:  Well thank you.

Caleb:  I know I've only known you for about a week and a half, but I seen you at finals....


Amber told Caleb she "was good" and changed the topic to being thirsty after eating some sort of salty snack.  She told him she wants to get to know him and everybody else as a friend and he nodded and said "cool".  The conversation ended awkwardly, with Caleb saying "I don't know...I don't know" over and over.

Amber immediately went downstairs and told the girls what just happened.

Amber (whispering loudly): Caleb just confessed that he liked me, and I was like....I...don't....like...you!

Jocasta:  Don't worry....it will go away....but we're trapped in here...ha ha...no it won't go away....

There was another awkward moment as Caleb came downstairs to go in the DR and tried to play it off like he got called in there after every conversation he has "up there".

Amber:  Because you're HoH?

After Caleb went in the DR Amber laughed about the way Caleb said "I see the way you look at me!".  Nicole and Victoria were in the kitchen, too, enjoying the laughs.

(NOTE TO MEN:  In case you don't know, we talk about you, too, in ways that can be far more hurtful then you just criticizing the size of our boobs.)


Frankie and Christine had a meeting in The Hive where they both said they would love to go to the end of the game together.  They "practice" for competitions together by reciting what happened each day and talk about how stupid everyone else is.

Christine kept bringing up Derrick and Cody's relationship like that might be a problem.


Caleb sat alone and probably wondered where it all went wrong.  I think Amber made it really clear that she's not interested, and Caleb may have even heard her laughing about it when he went downstairs.  I think Caleb has potential to be volatile in there, particularly when he has to live in the General Population after being HoH.  Amber may be sorry she didn't keep the conversation to herself....by tomorrow afternoon everyone will know all about this...I'm predicting Caleb turns on her....big time.

Do they still have the spy screen up there in the HoH?


Nicole used Amber's conversation about Caleb to reiterate that she is not having a showmance with Hayden.

Nicole:  I mean, I wanted a back massage but I didn't want everyone to think we're involved.


Cody sat in the Have Not room and laughed with Joey about how some house guests seem to get drunk after only one or two drinks.  Like Nicole, who admitted she was a lightweight, and Victoria, who Cody says is an angry drunk.

Cody:  This is why they don't give us a lot of booze....if they gave us an overabundance...Pao Pao would end up punching someone in the face..


Joey:  Yeah, why don't they give us more alcohol?

Cody:  Because this isn't The Real World!

I think Joey might be staying....it sounds like Cody and Zach are on her side, and we know Devin is....
