About Last Night....The Afternoon After #BB16

Today is an easy day for the house guests.  No competitions, no pressure.  Nicole probably has plans to work on Caleb in an attempt to get Frankie on the block next to her.  Not sure how successful that would be, but we can hope, right?

The girls are going to get some sun.

Cody made himself some breakfast and got some information About Last Night.

Derrick:  Dude, you passed out and we didn't mess with were out.

Cody:  I think I went to sleep upstairs too.

Derrick:  Yeah, you did.

Cody:  My stomach hurts so bad...

(Should have eaten those late night carbs, Cody.)

Derrick laid on the floor to show Cody exactly how he fell asleep, with his arms in the air.  Derrick needed a hand to get back up, though, due to the lingering HoH comp pains.

Nicole and Christine talked across the back of the yard about blood vessels and other gross topics that skeeve me out.

Christine's husband said that the tattoo on her collarbone says "I am second" and this relates to her religion.  (I googled it to save you the trouble, and you can learn more here.)

Christine and Frankie both loved the wake up music today, but no one else even remembers hearing it.  I think one of the songs was from Pocahantas and Christine wishes all three songs were from Disney films.

Cody is embarrassed About Last Night.  He hates it when he slurs and starts talking in "the drunk voice".

Cody:  I'm self conscious about it even when I'm not on TV...

Frankie tells Cody that he went from "playful to comatose" last night very quickly.

(You can read my recap of the drunken events here.)

Frankie tells him that Victoria made Cody look sober, and this made him feel better.

(But Victoria didn't get really buzzed in an obvious way until Cody was already passed out in La La Land.)

Derrick is obviously trying to think today  (hopefully about BOOTING FRANKIE) but Victoria sits with him and is full of the kind of chatter that probably drives Derrick crazy.

Victoria:  And Christine apparently knows everything about you...

She tells Derrick a rambling tale about doing laundry this morning, and Christine said something like "Derrick's wife doesn't even fold his laundry like he likes it, so you'd better not touch it".

Victoria:  What is she talking about?  I've been doing your laundry for weeks?


Victoria:  She's a motherfucking nasty whore!

(Whoa! Slow down there Victoria.)

Cody reports that the costume is hard to sleep in, because he can't really scratch his dick.

I hope Victoria doesn't look out of the window and see this.

Cody Calzone is a Cheap Date, Apparently. #BB16

People with a buzz are fun.  Energetic, talkative, often very witty.  But once you cross the line into intoxication, it is just kind of sad to watch.  Earlier tonight, Cody and Caleb drank four beers apiece, and Cody drank most of a bottle of red wine.  Caleb and Victoria had some wine, too, because a bottle of white wine got drained, too.

Then around 10:00 pm BBT, Caleb and Cody were upstairs listening to Caleb's FGL CD and were probably about to fall asleep.  Derrick went in the storage room and found four more cold cans of beer and another bottle of red wine.

Derrick made the announcement that there was more booze and they came running downstairs to drink more.  There was still another hour of TVGN coverage to fill, so I guess Production figured, what the hell.

Cody came down wearing Frankie's silver Mom Drag Shoes, crowing about how tall he looked in them.  And then he and Frankie grabbed each other's butts.  Yes, they did.  And they both squeezed, too.

Cody is getting sloppy, for sure.

Take a seat, Cody.  Maybe drink some water, too.  Because you're wasting the beer you are drinking now.

Caleb let Victoria wear his cowboy hat for about 2 minutes before taking it back.  Victoria says she goes country line dancing at home with a group of friends and it's fun.  She wants to salsa dance with Caleb tomorrow and he says he's up for it.

Caleb has been drinking just like Cody has, but his voice is steady and he is not being silly at all.  He can handle his drinking.

Frankie does his dinosaur imitation.

Derrick went upstairs to listen to the FGL CD and then Caleb came upstairs, and they talked about their plans for the rest of the game, and the possibilities of being in the Final Three together with Cody.  Derrick knows just how to stroke Caleb's ego, telling him that it is likely that whichever of them doesn't make Final Two will probably get America's Favorite Player, because they've been in the game so long and have been playing so hard.

(Meanwhile, I don't even think there will be an America's Favorite Player this year, since so much money has already been spent on the Team America bullshit.  I would like Zach to win some cash though....but I'm tired of the "Poor Donny.....Poor Donny" crap.  If you watch the live feeds than you know that Donny did nothing but sleep when everyone else was awake and then sit pouting during group conversations. And Donny's family is embarrassed about the "Give Donny Money" fund and asked people not to contribute to it. Donny doesn't need or want charity.)

Caleb said whoever makes HoH next needs to put up Frankie and Christine and whoever they think they can't beat needs to go home.  I was hoping Derrick would pounce on this comment, but Victoria came in to tell Derrick that the chocolate slop muffins she made were ready to eat.

In the kitchen they talked about BB14, when the coaches came in.

Derrick:  What if the eight of us come back in the house and we all decided to work together again.

Christine:  That would be AWESOME!

Derrick:  And then Frank Eudy comes in, and Dan, and Mike Boogie, and we'd all be like, "what?".  Dan would call me aside to talk game with me and I'd just be an idiot, saying, "So Dan, you want to talk game to me?  you want me to go on the block, and then go home?  OK!"

Cody:  If Jeff wanted to talk game with me, I'd just be like, bye everybody! I'm working with Jeff now!

Derrick:  Well that's what happened to them!  They were all starstruck!

What are you doing with your hand Cody?

And what are you doing with your hand Frankie?  Your gnarled, Glitter Gnome Hand?

Derrick started eating the slop muffins, and Cody had something to say about him.

Cody:  You're so thin man.

Derrick:  What?

Cody:  You're so look great.

Derrick:  Thanks.

Cody, slurring:  ...Good looking as fuck..

Derrick was thrilled to hear that and ran around the counter to give Cody a hug.  BB should have given Derrick a Holla for that....

Then Frankie had to get in on the Hug Cody action, too.  Around this time, Cody started really slurring and appeared to be having trouble sitting upright.

Christine wanted to get in on the Cody action too, and started licking a spoon in a suggestive manner to get his attention.

Cody, slurring big time:  I saw that.

Christine, give it a rest, hon.  We get it.

That dinosaur head must be heavy...

A big clue that you are wasted is if everyone talks about you like you're not even there.  A discussion started about how Cody should eat right now.

Nicole:  Yeah, he really should be crushing some food.

Victoria, who drank also but is well-behaved:  Some carbs.  He needs some carbs.

Christine:  Want me to make you a quesadilla?

Cody, trying to be snappy, but slurring:  No.  I make the quesadillas here....

Christine:  But you've made me so many.  Let me make you one.

Frankie:  What about a bagel?  A toasted bagel?

Frankie tries to leer in a caring way.

Frankie:  You want to go to bed now?  Aren't you tired?

Cody denied all food offers and trudged upstairs to the HoH room and collapsed on the couch.  Caleb sounded sober as a judge while he told Cody that the flag he got in his HoH basket flew over Baghdad, and discussed how there was no one for Cody to cuddle with.

Caleb:  Christine is married...and Nicole is dating Hayden...and Victoria...well...neither one of us like her.

Cody tried to respond a few times, but it was clear he was failing fast.

The camera guys have some fun...surveying the damage from the night.

Scenes From Last Night #BB16

We knew it would happen eventually, but Cody the Dinosaur started with the hugging.

Meanwhile, Victoria has been pouting with Derrick, and he met with her to try and get to the bottom of the problem.  As usual, he had to drag it out of her.

Derrick: Okay.  Something is obviously wrong.  What is it?

Victoria:  I don't's a lot of things....

Derrick:  Don't censor yourself.  Just tell me.  It's always better when you just say what you feel.  Start with one thing...just one thing.

Victoria is upset that Derrick talked to Christine for "like, three hours" last night in the bathroom.  Derrick tells her he doesn't talk game to Christine.. and then BB calls out Victoria for not wearing a microphone.  Derrick is very aware of the entire house right now, and the last thing he needs is for the others to think he and Victoria are talking game.  So he gets out of there as fast as he can, saying he'll be back later and she should just calm down.

(Victoria doesn't want Derrick to discuss ANYTHING with Christine for that long.  She is very territorial about her relationship with Derrick, and she knows that Christine talks shit about her all of the time.  I guess she's worried that Christine and Derrick will talk shit about her  I heard Victoria mumble last night as she watched Christine walk across the yard "there she goes...going over to my best friend.")

Nicole is chopping up mushrooms for the Have Not dinner.  They have so many varieties of mushrooms now and are going to make a few dishes in hopes of feeling full and satisfied.

Frankie came over and hugged Nicole, telling her that "he loved playing the game with someone who loves it as much as he does".

As Nicole walked to the kitchen I could read the look on her face....Frankie is so fake and he used the past tense when he spoke, assuming her eviction would be a done deal.

Earlier, Cody commented on how good Nicole looks tonight, with her hair down and her jeans on.

Cody:  Why don't you wear your hair like that more often?

Nicole:  I don't know....but I brought three pair of jeans in here but I don't think I've worn them yet.

Christine:  I wear jeans all of the time.

Cody, to Nicole:  Well, I'm a-looking, and I'm a-liking.

No response from Christine on that.

Nicole had a moment to herself in the kitchen, and she mumbled to herself, and us, saying she wished he had been a stronger competitor.  She really wanted to go farther in the game, but at least she got another week out of it (i.e. surviving the block last week).

Derrick came in the kitchen later and the two of them made dinner.  Nicole asked him how close Caleb was to Frankie, clearly thinking that Frankie could go on the block next to her.  (Don't we wish...)

Derrick:  They're pretty close, but I don't know.  And I don't have much influence over Caleb...surely you see that.

Nicole:  Yep.  Don't tell anybody about this conversation, okay?  I want everyone to think I've given up right now....and I'm gonna try...but it's gonna be really hard to change things.

Derrick:  I like your swag...I'll tell you that.  I'm loving your game swag.

Flash forward a few hours later.  A few drunken hours.

And the group outside discusses whether love at first sight is possible.  Caleb believes that looks are what attract you to someone, but there is no way you can know them enough to fall in true love at first sight.

Caleb:  That's lust at first sight.

Cody says that he meets a lot of beautiful girls, but if he learns that they hate their family, and hate what they do, he's not interested at all.  He shared a story of meeting his ex-girlfriend in a bar.  Cody was thinking about taking some sort of blueberry shot, and this girl encouraged him to do it, saying she would "be his chaser".

Christine:  That's so hot!  I like her already!

Cody:  And she wasn't a 10...or a 9...or an 8...or a 7...well, she was a 7.  But it was her personality that attracted her to me.  She ended up cheating on me and it destroyed me.  I still think about her.  Her new boyfriend lives near me, and he's a good guy.  I respect him, but I still think about her.  I just saw her the other day...

Caleb:  Really?  Like, 77 days ago?

Caleb tried to do a role play with Victoria to demonstrate that love at first sight is not possible.  Victoria swears that it is, and that happened when her sister's husband saw her sister for the first time.

Shortly after this, a Drive By Shouter struck, but from a different side of the backyard.  What they said wasn't clear---it just sounded like shouting.  As soon as they heard it, Derrick, Victoria and Frankie got up from the hammock area and went inside, along with everyone on the couch.

BB:  This is a lockdown.  Please go inside.

Victoria:  Damn those fuckers.

(Victoria is learning some new vocabulary words this summer....)

I listened to the shouting twice, with my headphone volume turned way, way up, and I couldn't tell what they said.  I read online that the same guy who did it last time claims to have done this one, too, and said something like "Frankie is destroying everybody in the DR, especially Derrick!"

If that is what he said, it is clearly untrue. I can't remember Frankie trashing Derrick at all in the DR.

But it sounds like the Drive By Shouter wants Derrick to get Frankie put on the block during the PoV ceremony, so maybe his heart is in the right place.
