What the Hell, Derrick #BB16

Derrick just swore Caleb to secrecy about his plan to backdoor Devin.  He told Caleb that he would not discuss it with anyone, not even Cody.

But what is he doing now?  He's telling Zach and Cody, and if I'm not mistaken, there is at least one person in the WC.  And Derrick is not whispering..


Derrick's squad listens intently, taking it all in.  Derrick tells them that Devin asked him to just put him on the block tomorrow.



Zach:  What does he, think you're stupid?

Derrick:  He's going to learn that I'm not stupid..and you have to make nice with him all week.  I mean it...you can't make waves...we almost lost the game last week..you can't do it..


Derrick:  And we'll have plenty of time to talk up there...it's our office now.

Zach and Cody:  Hell yeah!



Victoria comes in and they start a detailed chat about the competition and their scores.  Derrick knew exactly where to aim after seeing Zach hit the ball and bank it off the wall.  Zach just missed so Derrick hit it a little softer and he knew when he hit it that it was a winner..


For once, Cody says he's not sore about losing.  He explains this by saying that there were a lot of scores above his, and he was in the middle, so he wasn't even close to winning.

(And that makes him feel better?)

This is Zach's tank top.  Production recently cleared it and gave it to him, but he didn't want to wear it tonight.  (Not a big fan of that tank top.)


Victoria can't wait to see Derrick's wife.  Derrick can't either, but is just dying to see his little girl.

Derrick has a daughter, you know.


Hayden comes in with pizza and both Derrick and Victoria stare at him.  Zach is so close he can probably smell the tangy sauce.  The Have Nots are starving.

Derrick:  Douche.


Zach says this week was the worst ever, and today was especially tough.

Live Show Aftermath..and the Game Shifts #BB16

Cody was talking to Jocosta, and seemed totally absorbed in the conversation.  It was personal, I think, with Jocosta talking about her life.  (Are Cody and Derrick deliberately dividing and conquering this week?)


Cody asked Jocosta what she had in her mouth.  She said it was cucumber.

Cody:  Why do you have a cucumber in your mouth?

She explained that she didn't have any gum, and it keeps her breath fresh.  Cody was surprised to hear that.


I think this Amber shot could be in Elle (but not Vogue) with a desert safari theme in the background.


Derrick is relaxed and is enjoying things.



Hayden and Victoria are tired, I guess.  They certainly don't look too peppy.  I know Victoria has had a tough week in the Have Not room, so maybe that explains her Gangsta Lean in the picture.


Frankie decides to put on the Frankie Show, really hamming it up and acting like he is Derrick's best friend.  Due to Team America, I certainly don't think Frankie has to worry, but I think he's lucky to have that connection with Derrick.  Derrick doesn't really trust Frankie.

If Nicole wins the overall HoH, then Frankie may need to put on a different show.






Zach is loose and easy on the couch.  He didn't win HoH, but Derrick winning is the next best thing for him.  And he gets to eat in a few hours, too.


Donny tells him that Paola ended up being kind of sweet on Zach, even after their fight this week.

Donny:  She likes you...she told me so...maybe she can be your date to the Finale.

Zach:  Unless I'm in here....

Donny:  She'll be good and liquored up!


Derrick taps his FitBit.  If you tap it twice quickly, you get an indication of your steps..a little dot for each 2,000 steps taken.  The clock starts over at midnight, and you can track your workouts, too.  (It's really cool. I also use mine for sleeping---it tells me how long it took me to go to sleep, how many times I woke up, and how many times I was restless...I would LOVE to see that for the house guests.)


Nicole announces that she is glad that she gets to share the experience with Derrick.  Derrick says he is, too, and he never really gets to talk to Nicole much, and they both say they can talk now.

Derrick: I wonder what your dad will think about this?  Up there with a guy?

Nicole:  Oh, he knows you're married.

Derrick:  Maybe we'll mess up the blankets just to get him going..


Nicole says she doesn't care which bedroom she gets, but ends up saying she wants the back bedroom and that is fine with Derrick.  I'll bet Derrick is going to make good use of that Surveillance Spy Screen.



Amber's nervous ya'll.  Especially after Zach told her last night everyone was gunning for her. (A dastardly lie.  Sort of.)


And Cody is still in deep discussions with Jocosta, wearing Zach's camouflage tank top.  She is telling a story that ends with her saying that she always gets screwed over...she expects that.


Hey Boo.

Good lord.


What the hell is going on here?  Good thing her breath is cucumber-fresh.

Derrick Takes Office #BB16

Derrick tells Caleb he wants Devin out this week.  Caleb is not to tell a sole, Derrick says, and he doesn't plan to discuss this with anybody else.  If word gets out, he will know Calcb talked.  People in the house are talking to Devin, and he doesn't want Devin to do what he did last week.


Caleb nods and agrees.  Derrick says that whoever wins PoV, they can use it on whoever they want, and he will put Devin up on the block.  Derrick knows next week when he can't compete for HoH, he's a big target for Devin.


Caleb brings up that Derrick said with tears in his eyes that he would take another week of slop, just so he could see his daughter.

Caleb:  And you get to see your daughter now.  Without eating slop, and being healthy.

Derrick can't wait to see his daughter, and for everybody else to see her, too.  He says some people think he might not really have a family, but they'll see that he does this week.

(I've never heard anyone say that...)

Caleb says he can go ahead and volunteer himself, Amber and Frankie for Have Nots, but only if Derrick wins the overall HoH and gets to choose.  Derrick says he might not want to do that, let's just see how it goes.

Derrick:  I kind of want him in there (Devin) so he can have a week of not eating and not sleeping----I haven't slept well in 5, no 6 nights.


Caleb says it is really Frankie's fault that things went down like this.  Frankie went up there to Devin and told him that Caleb and Zach had made a deal.

Derrick said Nicole is easy to talk to.  Devin already approached Derrick to tell him to go ahead and nominate him.

Derrick:  He wants two chances to get off the block, so I'm not going to nominate him. He's gonna know what I'm doing, but I don't care.  We're not going to make the same mistakes we did last week.  We're not going to trust him with information, because we can't trust him.

(I think Devin is testing Caleb's loyalty here..if he squeals then Derrick will have every right to target him, too.)


Derrick's Barber Shop #BB16

The feeds came back around 2:00 pm, BBT, and the guys were getting ready for the big day.  Devin was shaving his own head and Derrick prepared to give Frankie a trim.  Earlier Frankie said he could wait a week for a haircut, but I guess he changed his mind.




While Derrick was waiting for the hair clippers, Derrick pulled Victoria aside, after Frankie apparently relayed a message to him that she had a question about the vote tonight.  Victoria wanted to know is they were still voting to keep Zach.


It sounds like two people were up late, talking and this gave Victoria cause for concern.


Derrick assured her everything was still on track, and cautioned her against overthinking things.  This seemed to make her happy.  At first I was annoyed with her and her wishy-washiness, but then I realized how scary it would be to find everyone else changed their vote, leaving you out on a limb all by yourself with the lone vote.


Derrick starts to work on Frankie's hair, and Devin tells them to be careful, because one of his buddies got ringworm on his head from using dirty clippers.  Derrick showed him how he cleans them, but I couldn't see how based on this camera angle.



Frankie:  You do this really good, don't you?

Derrick:  No, not compared to somebody who does hair...





Devin kind of sheepishly asked Derrick to even up the back of his head.  Derrick did it.  No problem.


Why didn't Devin shave in the HoH Suite, when he still had the chance?

Donny is watching Amber do her makeup, and she talks aloud to him in what I think is a condescending way.

Amber:  Now for the best part...the countouring.

Donny:  Contouring?

Amber:  I'm going to paint my face like a warrier, then wipe it all off!

(Like she's talking to a two year old.)


Donny reads one of Amber's makeup labels.

Donny:  Ur-ban de-cay.

Amber:  Good Donny!


The house guests were all given "Fitness Trackers" to wear---I'm sure these will come into play somehow in the game.  Or maybe they are related to a new sponsor.  I got a FitBit for Christmas last year and wear it every day.  Maybe we will be able to see each house guest's Dashboard that shows the amount of activity and calories burned.

It would be really interesting to see how much sleep each person actually gets, and the pattern of sleeping.  But with the FitBit you have to tap it a certain way when you are ready for bed, and then tap it again when you wake up and it takes care of everything else.

Who knows what type of tracker they are wearing, though, and what it does.
