Don't Get Too Excited About Nicole's HoH Tweets. #BB16

This morning I heard Nicole nervously ask Hayden and Christine some hurried questions about tweeting when she got called to the DR for her little computer session.

How can a recent college graduate not be on Twitter? How can she be a Big Brother Super Fan if she doesn't follow her favorite (and least favorite) house guests on Twitter?  Nicole wore a "3AM" T-shirt last year while she watched the show and she doesn't follow Andy and McCrae on Twitter?  Not even Amanda?

That is crazy to me.

The first tweet listed below is a little strange to me.  I've never heard Nicole talk about herself in the third person, ever.  I'm thinking Production had to write that one for her so they could use  the super popular Froot Loop Dingus hashtag that swept the nation last week.

The second tweet listed below sounds just like Nicole, though.


I do like Nicole's choice of  hashtags in this tweet though.


Something tells me that Nicole will become quite proficient with Twitter in the next few months. She will need to learn in order to survive.

If you're ever bored, just head over to Survivor Sucks and check out the Big Brother "What the Houseguests are Saying on Twitter" thread sometime.

Believe me, there have been a number of times where I wanted to comment here about what happened on Twitter between the house guests after BB15, even as late as a month ago.  So much drama!

But I didn't want to get dragged in on any of it. There are some fans who take things WAY TOO FAR in their support for and/or attacks on former house guests.

It is entertaining, but ugly....

Beast Mode Bunny Slippers #BB16


If Caleb winds up in the Final Two, I would love to see him wear Amber's bunny slippers.

Donny is telling him about how he and Kristine went to the races and someone ran over Kristine's cornhole board in the parking lot.


HoH Picture Friction Time #BB16

I had the live feeds going and my wireless headphones on, and wasn't really paying attention to the live feeds until I heard the clear sounds of Christine bitching at Victoria in a VERY snappy tone.  I immediately looked up to see just what was going on.

Nicole has her HoH camera, but don't be surprised if the only pictures on the CBS website involve Nicole, Christine, Hayden, Victoria, and Donny.  Donny posed for a few shots with this green wall backdrop and then went about his normal morning routine.

Victoria and Nicole were going to pose against the wall, and at first Victoria was on the other side of Nicole, opposite of what you see below.

Victoria:  I need to be on the other side of Nicole.

Christine:  Why?

Victoria:  Because I need to be.

Christine:  She's the HoH..she can stand on any side she wants.

Victoria:  But I have a facial defect...you'll all see after the show is over.

Christine, so snappy:  What facial defect?  You wear your hair up...we all see everything!

Victoria wanted to use the beach ball as a prop, and then ended up being on the side she wanted to be on.


Nicole didn't want to do it, and had to be persuaded to throw her head back and smile.




They took almost every possible combination of shots together, so Hayden went for some action poses like playing pool or running but they had constant problems with the lighting not being right.  Nicole thanked them for being awake right now, unlike everybody else.






I would love to have Nicole's hair, just for one day.


I'm sure Victoria would, too.


They went inside and Victoria suggested that they shoot a picture of Nicole coming down the staircase.
Nicole:  Yeah, the staircase is really neat looking.

Victoria:  I know..I'm a photographer!

They took the picture and Nicole loved it---Victoria had directed her to lean over on the staircase a little and Nicole loved all the bright colors.

Victoria:  You see?

Then she wanted Nicole to get on Hayden's back for a picture.

Nicole:  No...that's so stupid...


Victoria:  Just try it.



Nicole:  Oh it's really cute...look Hayden!

Christine:  I want to see!

Hayden:  It's the cutest thing I've ever seen!


As all this takes place, we see Zach sleeping in the Rock Room, while the sounds of Christine laughing are nearly deafening.

Earlier today Donny told Hayden that the sound of Christine's "piercing cackle" drives him crazy, and he thinks the people in Production that have to hear it in the control room probably want to quit their jobs at least five times a day, because it probably isn't worth it.


Zach's Poetic Speech For Thursday Night #BB16 #ZachAttack

Zach does very well on the fly when Julie Chen calls him out on the live show.  But you may not know that for all of Zach's other speeches and presentations featured on both the live shows and taped ceremonies like the PoV and nomination ceremonies, he practices. (Even the Froot Loop Dingus speech.)

He practices his words, and also his delivery.  There are hand motions and facial expressions.  Zach is so good at it that it doesn't seem rehearsed....it comes off very naturally when he finally delivers.

Last night he practiced his poetic speech again, just before 3:30 am BBT, while his bros Cody and Derrick played pool around him.  I wonder if they feel a little guilty about this whole thing.  I'm sure they do..

And they are nervous, too, because they know there is about 30 seconds after Julie announces the vote when Zach can blow up their game.  And Cody is worried about Zach borrowing his boots for Thursday night...he wants those boots back.

I don't think Zach will go out nasty like that, though.  If the vote is unanimous he will be even more shocked, since he thinks he has the votes to stay, but I think he will also realize that he is on live TV, and is about to walk into a studio audience full of fans who either love him, or love to hate him.

Zach's poem starts slow, but then builds momentum until the cuteness compounds every half second.  I know some of you are math nerds, so that is a lot of cute for just a short poem.

Zach:  Roses are red, and violets are blue.  Everyone here is great.  I love each and every one of you.


Zach:  You've all touched my heart, and for that I'm so grateful. Maybe I'll even change my ways, and not be so hateful.


Zach:  The Jury's in our sights...we're on the right track..


Zach:  ..viewers at home, please hashtag Zach Attach.


Zach:  House guests I'm begging you..please give me another chance...


Zach:  If you want to follow me on Instagram or Twitter...my name is Rancy Pants..


Zach: Your decision tonight is crucial..the wrong choice may cost ya..

(Derrick:  I hate this fucking speech already.)


Zach:  So when you WALK into that Diary Room, vote for Jocosta.


Cody is openly irritated at having to hear the speech over and over, but likes the part where Zach raises his voice when he says "when you walk into that Diary Room".  Frankie likes the part where he pimps out his social media accounts.  (Of course Frankie would like that.)


Zach sometimes starts out "Roses are red, violets are brew" when he practices.  If he makes that mistake on the live show, he says he'll just say please vote for me to stay and sit down.

Yes, we will all miss Zach in the Big Brother game, but we will always have his images and words right here.  And also in the Big Brother bathroom.

You may know that inside the bathroom closet downstairs, a number of house guests over the years have either written or carved their names into the door.  Dan's name is there, and Frank's.  McCrae also wrote something on there, too.

Zach said he imprinted his name so hard, it would take a lot of spackle to erase it.  It used to just say "Zach", but now it says "Zach Attack".

Frankie:  I didn't know you spelled it that way...I thought there was a "K".

Cody and Christine "Love Fest" #BB16

I know people all over the internet get all upset about Cody and Christine's friendship.  Cody flirts with all the girls...it's his thing.  But there are only a few girls left in the BB house right now, so the flirting is concentrated on just a few females.  Christine doesn't really seem to laugh it off though...

After 2:00 am  BBT, Cody was in the kitchen and apparently left a trail of stink behind him.  He's on slop, so his stomach is on shaky ground.

Derrick:  Your farts smell so bad, I have to go to the bathroom now!

So of course Christine has to go over and comfort Cody, who is saying over and over in a Mexican accent that his stomach is sick.

Does Christine's nose work?  Can't she smell the funk?



The camera crew know what the chatter is all about online.  They read the BB websites, too.



Christine is ready to go to bed, but says her lip balm is still in the backyard.  She doesn't want to go get it though, since Zach and Frankie are out there.

Cody makes her promise that she never says anything like that about him...


Which calls for another round of hugs, of course.


And you know how Cody is an Arm Stroker.



Christine asks if Cody is mad at her, which leads to some close-up staring and whispering.


And yet another round of hugs.



Finally she leaves the room, after Cody says twice "I love you" and she "loves him" right back.

Good lord.  If you think you love everybody, than you don't really love anybody.  Right?


Being a Have Not is exhausting for Cody.  It takes a lot of energy to do all of that hugging.

A few minutes before this Lovefest, Derrick and Caleb were in the kitchen with Cody, and Derrick says as a Big Brother fan he used to wonder what Slop was like.  He addressed the cameras and told us to go to Whole Foods and buy the blandest type of steel cut oats, and eat them with barely any condiments.  And then keep doing that for seven days.

Derrick:  Don't even eat a fucking cookie.  Not one.  And you'll know what it's like.

Cody:  And sleep on the kitchen floor, with the A/C turned way down.

Derrick:  Sleep on the sidewalk!

Caleb said in the military, it was okay to spend time in the woods, eating MREs, because everyone else is doing it, too.  But in the BB house, people are eating food all around him, and there is food right there in front of him.

(Caleb said he had to wait in the Storage Room on Saturday night while that super long PoV competition was going on.  He told Production how cruel that was, since he was a Have Not, and they said they didn't think about that, and were sorry.)


The following four pictures are from yesterday afternoon.

Derrick stared at his daughter Tenley's footprints that he got in his HoH room, and was probably trying to have a few moments alone to reflect.


But of course Victoria was there, laying next to him and chattering non-stop.  He really is a good listener, and rarely seems irritated or annoyed.  All of that patience is paying off, though, and will continue to reap dividends.  Because Victoria will basically do anything in the game that Derrick tells her to do, and represents a solid vote for him to win at the end.

Or maybe all the votes if Derrick is in the Final Two with Victoria....

Derrick told Cody last night that when Victoria really gets going with the chatter he wants to kill himself, but he will not talk smack about her in front of Frankie because Frankie will run and tell Victoria immediately.

Derrick:  I really miss my family.

Victoria:  ***crickets***


Victoria also whined in the kitchen with Jocosta, about the same old shit---being nominated every week, no one giving her credit for her competition wins, etc.

Jocosta tried to pump her up with some inspirational ideas, and pointed out that at least Victoria had never faced elimination on Thursday, gently hinting that maybe Victoria should think about other people and STFU.  But she didn't say that part, of course.


Jocosta did some general cleaning in the kitchen, but refused to wash some of the dishes, saying she keeps washing dishes and she's tired of it.  I'm guessing many of the dishes relate to Frankie's slop cooking.  I think he's used to having a house keeper in Los Angeles, and Amber in the BB house.   So now there is a big mess.

The house was empty much of the day on Monday, as most people slept in...and in...and on and on.  Jocosta walked through the house saying how boring everyone was..all they wanted to do was sleep.


Wil Heuser Presents: The Saga Ep. 6 - The Hunt for Amber #BB16

This episode of Wil Heuser's Big Brother 16 Saga is kind of slow and breezy.  It's snowing in the BB house, so maybe that means it is a cold day in hell.

In this episode, we see Zach pimped out in a fur coat, still claiming to be heterosexual.  We also see Caleb in his onesie and crown, chasing Amber through the woods, brandishing a shotgun.

And Julie Chen's stylist gets a few direct shots, too.





FYI If you don't know, Wil Heuser was a house guest on BB14, leaving the game way too early...
