Princess Victoria's Jewels. #BB16

So by now you know that the Jury stormed the Big Brother house last Friday and made a little mess.

Well, kind of a big mess.  Jocosta was reportedly the worst, being extra-malicious with her choice to pour sauce all over the beds, and throw raw chicken all over the floor.  Well see that situation on tonight's CBS show.

Zach was the star, of course, and mainly danced on the coffee table and threw some Froot Loops around after encouragement by Nicole.  But he apparently stepped on Victoria's necklace and broke it.  She was very angry about this, and wanted it replaced immediately.  Derrick tried to fix it, but it was hopeless.

(You can see Zach dance on the table here.  And Victoria bitch about her necklace here.)

Victoria wanted us all to know that the necklace wasn't some "Forever 21 piece of shit".

Caleb:  But did it cost $5,000?

(Because that is how much she won in the Luxury comp.)

Victoria:  No, it was from Aldo.

Caleb says he loves Aldo, too, and that he will have on an Aldo watch at the after party, with the "large face".  I did some digging, and here is a very close match to Victoria's necklace.  And no, it's not a $5,000 necklace.  Victoria told Caleb that the necklace cost $80, so she clearly bought it full price.  And bought two of them, at $40.  Maybe she's quoting some other  currency there.


On Friday night, Victoria got called to the DR and they gave her a replacement necklace.

Victoria:  Derrick look!  They bought me a new one!  And it had packaging and everything...I had to take it out in there and put it in my make up bag.

The necklace is very sparkly in her hand.



Derrick tells her to speak quietly, so the guys won't hear them talking.



Victoria:  That was so sweet!  Thank you Big Brother!  I hope it came out of Zach's money..


FYI, Caleb is very worried about the logistics of going to the Wrap Party after the finale.  He wants to be sure that Production takes him to his hotel room to check in right after the show so he can get his luggage and dress for the party.

Derrick said he didn't think it would work like that, as they would each have a "handler" who would already be sure their luggage is in the hotel room, and would accompany them to be sure they were safe and "not in a ditch somewhere".   And they won't have time to go to the hotel...things will be hectic.  They will leave the show and head straight for the party.

Frankie says this is "absolutely correct" so we can all feel confident about this.  You know, because Frankie knows show biz and all....

Clearly Caleb is worried about looking good for Amber at the Wrap Party.   I haven't seen the bunny slippers in a long time....I'm guessing Caleb was forced to give them to the DR so they could return them to Amber.

Scenes After the PoV Ceremony #BB16

Cody didn't use the PoV, leaving Frankie and Victoria on the block.

So unless Cody is making out with that Travelocity gnome, I think that is Frankie under there.  I hope Cody gets out of there alive.


The house is quiet.  Derrick inspects a package of sliced turkey.


Victoria comes sweeping down the hallway. She and Frankie decided to dress up for the PoV ceremony.  They both worked on their speeches for the last day or so.


I think that is iced coffee she is stirring.  Now that Frankie is still on the block, I think she is beginning to feel confident that she will survive the eviction.  She asked Frankie about his speech...she was expecting something much more elaborate, based on his reported plans for the speech.


Frankie says he's really got something good planned for the live show this Wednesday.

(Not so fast there, Frankie.)

Frankie says he's going to say a lot, but he'll say it quickly.  Sounds like he plans another rap.  (You know, because America loved it so much last time.)


Victoria started trying to recite Zach's famous "Roses are Red"  speech and Frankie chants it with her.  They got stuck on the line he used to rhyme with Jocosta, but Caleb correctly recited it as he strolled into the kitchen to get something.

(Supposedly there was a Drive By Shouter outside while they were locked out....the feeds were down at the time but they did yell something about the Beast Mode Cowboy.)


Derrick was in the WC for a long, long time.


When the feeds return Derrick is alone up in the HoH, and is putting on the headphones to listen to Brett Eldridge.  He talks to us.

Derrick:  Hey live feeders. You can tell my wife Jana that the Beast Mode Cowboy has converted me into liking country music.  So Jana I'll listen to it in the car with you now...but it's got to be FGL or Brett Eldridge.



They just have that little MP3 player now.  They used to have some sort of flimsy Discman contraption, but this seems to work better.



Meanwhile, Caleb shows Victoria where the bathroom door was signed with Jocosta's name.  Victoria had to look at from several angles, but she finally saw it.

Victoria:  Do you think that was here before?  Or did she just put it there?


She went to get Frankie so he could take a look.

(Victoria is clearly worried about which Juror vandalized her name in the bathroom when they visited last Friday.  They all thought Zach or Christine may have done it, but Victoria was leaning towards Christine. You can read about that here.)


She had to really point it out for Frankie, but once he saw it he recognized the word.

Victoria:  It better not have been her.  Right?


Upstairs Derrick's relaxation was interrupted by Caleb, who was giving an impassioned speech.  I was confused at first, because he said things like this:

Caleb:  Don't get me wrong....I like you, but I'm sick of being around you.  I want to go home and see my friends....drive my truck....

Derrick:  Just get back to life..

Caleb:  Exactly.


Turns out I think he is describing what he wanted to say to Frankie.  Frankie is driving everyone crazy right now.  Not only is he paranoid about the upcoming vote, he appears to be extra-dramatic right now, as if he wants to wring every second of camera time that he can.


Both Caleb and Derrick assure Victoria that Frankie is leaving, and that's a given.


Derrick:  And don't even let him talk to you about it.  See what a drama he just made out of that whole thing just now?  And it will be even worse on Wednesday.  So don't take the bait..don't let it get to you.

Derrick appeared to remember that he and Victoria are supposed to be on the outs right now.

Derrick:  I mean, you can have whatever personal feelings you have right now...I respect that, but I'm just saying if I were you I'd avoid his drama.


Suddenly Frankie burst in the room and just jumps in the HoH bed and gets under the covers.  Derrick kind of stammered as he acted like everything was just peachy keen.


Caleb apparently thought it was smart to pretend to sleep sitting up, complete with gentle snoring.

(Like Frankie just didn't hear him talking to Derrick from right outside the door!)


Derrick changed to topic to some of the songs on the CD.  He says Brett is killing it on a couple of songs, and Caleb tells them that Brett plays every single instrument on his CD.  He has backup musicians in concert, of course, but plays every instrument on the recorded songs.

Frankie expressed surprise at that, but Caleb says it's true, because he saw Brett playing all of the instruments on the music video.

(Caleb is so guilible.)


Wil Heuser Presents: The Saga Episode 11 - Wil Gets Sloppy Drunk. Again. #BB16

This is the second episode of the saga this season where Wil gets hammered and describes what happened on Big Brother.  To be honest, for the first one, I had never seen or heard of "Drunk History", but now that I know that is a thing, I have a better understanding of Wil's thing.

If that makes sense.

While I like to party, I do not recommend drinking to the levels that Wil is claiming to drink in this video.  Do you think Wil is really that drunk?

Once again Wil is very critical of Julie Chen's stylist.  I tend to think maybe she has no stylist this season.  Maybe she has a personal shopper at Macy's.

(I have to laugh, because I have heard Frankie say several times that Julie Chen's fashion has been "on point" this year.  That must be the kiss of death, coming from someone who dresses like a Bratz doll.)



Also...Wil may have had a little buzz on when he posted this video on You Tube.  There is an extra minute of dead air at the end of the video, but you'll deal with it when you get there.



Dinner and Dancing #BB16

Last night the house guests gathered to make a big dinner.  Frankie said, "if they won't throw us a Final Five party we'll do it ourselves!"

Cody made a salad, with assistance from Victoria cutting up carrots.  Derrick pounded chicken breasts and he and Cody made chicken parmesan, but with mashed potatoes instead of pasta.  Caleb wishes they had French dressing, and Cody does, too.  Victoria and Frankie had never heard of it before, but are open to trying it now, after Caleb's rave reviews.


They think they will be having another family dinner on Tuesday, but if things go as I think they will, Frankie will be evicted no later than the end of Monday.

Look at the way Frankie handles his fork, holding it out like a shovel.  Where did he learn that behavior?  Probably the same place he learned the smacking and the slurping.

Caleb nominated Frankie and Victoria for eviction this week, you know.  Frankie was annoyed with Caleb for not telling him beforehand.  He feels wronged, but has been assured by both Derrick and Cody that they will vote for him to stay.

(No, they are not planning to vote for him to stay.  Of course.)

Cody won the PoV, too, so Frankie has no powers at the moment.  That we know about, anyway.


Both Cody and Caleb sat down to eat without waiting for the others.  Cody ate a bowl of salad and Caleb just wolfed down one of the pieces of chicken parmesan.  He is avoiding carbs right now, from what I've heard him say.  He wants to start shredding to look good at the Finale.

(But I've also seen him house some cookies and other snacks, very quickly, usually standing up, as if the calories don't count that way.  We all know that move, Caleb.)


Derrick can't tolerate many spicy foods, and even Cody's red sauce is too spicy for him.  He tasted it and wanted to eat more, but knows it would make him sick.  So he just had plain chicken with the mashed potatoes.

(Can you imagine a life without Siracha or tabasco sauce?  I can't....)


Once in awhile someone would say something about the Final Five, but there was a lot of silence as everyone chewed and sat, waiting to see what would happen next.



Victoria is very reflective on how much her life has changed in the last year.  She has brought it up quite a few times.  They all expect the next eviction to happen live on Wednesday, and that it will be a Double Eviction episode.

But that is not true.  The next eviction will occur sometime by the end of day Monday, as I said earlier, with the eviction airing on the taped Tuesday night show.  So it will be a "fake" live eviction in that it will not be broadcast live on CBS.

They will have a live audience, but it could be studio worker "plants", but they could also admit a "real" live audience for the taping.  There is precedent for both in recent Big Brother history.


Derrick will stay thin if he eats in this manner.  He takes a few bites and then puts down his utensils and adds to the conversation.  Some would call this mindful eating.


And Derrick, I'll point out, is not from a famous showbiz family, but he does know how to properly handle a knife and fork in a "grand" manner.


After dinner they all laid around and complained about how full they were. Derrick compared to a Thanksgiving type of full, and Caleb pulled up his shirt and stuck his stomach out to prove his point.  (No pictures of that.  Sorry.)

For some reason Cody got down on the floor to practice what looks like some break dancing moves.  He says he took a few classes, but has a hard time with this series of moves.  Basically it involves a lot of rolling around with your legs in the air.


This floor covering always freaks me out in pictures, even though I clearly know where Cody is right now.


He wanted Victoria to come over and help him with his legs.

No, I don't understand that, either.


I don't understand what she is doing, but she is clearly doing something.



Frankie must see the camera coverage so he comes over to get his share.  He lays down and tells us how much his groin hurts.

Victoria:  Is that your groin?


Victoria tells the guys that during the "Seed Saw" challenge she hurt herself too, because she had her legs open so wide.  She shows them.

That's wide.
