The House Guests Get Ready for Some (Preseason) Football #BB16

As you know, Christine, Caleb and Frankie won a prize after Frankie single-handedly winning the Battle of the Block on Friday.  They get to attend an NFL event, have some "gourmet tailgate food" and meet some NFL players.

They were awakened early by Production, and hurried to get ready to go.  Caleb wanted to wear this blue shirt, but Frankie told him it was going to be hot, and he might have "pit stains".  

Frankie:  That's why I'm wearing this.  (i.e. the age-and-occasion inappropriate cheap tank top)

Caleb asked if he could wear one of Frankie's tank tops...the striped one.  Frankie agreed, and told him where he could find it.

Meanwhile, Frankie was busy putting his face on.

The application of the glitter.

Remember weeks ago when Frankie's red Kaballah bracelet broke?  And he told Cody that the bracelet absorbs negativity, and when it can't absorb anymore it just falls off?  (Cody listened with a straight face, too.)  Then Frankie pitched a hissy fit in the DR until they replaced it.

When will the replacement bracelets break?  Hasn't there been plenty of negativity in there?

Now Caleb starts with the powdering.  You'e going to a football event, bro!  Snap out of it!

At one point, Frankie commented on how excited Caleb is to go, in a very condescending manner.  For the record, Caleb is allowed to eat today, and has been on slop for weeks, so I'm sure that is just as exciting to him as leaving the house.  He has said he wants to get hammered, too, and have at least six beers, but he doesn't want that part to be on TV.

Ironic that Caleb is going to a "tailgate party" with two people who don't drink, and who probably don't give a hoot about football.

They got a four minute warning from Production.

Frankie:  If we ride in a helicopter, I'll just die.

Caleb:  A helicopter?  That could happen..

They got called to the Diary Room, so Christine and Frankie started scrambling to grab breakfast and choke it down.  Caleb's not eating...he's going to wait for the real food.

Beast Mode Cowboy puts on his finishing touches.  Another ironic part of this situation is that Christine is the only girl going on the outing, but is by far the lowest-maintenance person in the group.

There is a last minute crush as they call for Frankie to come on, because "the NFL waits for no man".  And with that, the three of them disappeared into the Diary Room.

When you think about it, that must be so scary...they haven't left the house in over 50 days, and now they are headed to an unknown place, with unknown people.  They will likely be blindfolded until they are on the interstate.   There have been trips where the house guests leave or come back through a door in the backyard, too.

They left the house at 10:05 am BBT.

OK.  Flash forward to the trio's return, at about 8:30 pm BBT.   Everyone gathered around to hear their stories.  The feeds were cut as they came back to the house, and when they returned everyone was in the backyard, so I suspect they may have come in through that door I mentioned.

Frankie:  I feel like we were in a gentlemen's club...everyone was such a gentleman!

Caleb:  Yeah, everybody was really nice.

They said they were indeed blindfolded as they left the house, and were not allowed to remove them until they were "in the RV" and out of the studio.  As you can see, they were given Cowboys clothing to wear, probably to blend in better with the crowd. 

There were a few feed interruptions as they talked.  Caleb says he had some interaction with "Jessie" and that Jessie "did Caleb's pose".  I don't think Jessie got to talk with them, but Caleb said Jessie made the "I'm watching you" gesture with his hands before making the Beast Mode Cowboy pose.  

Caleb:  Then he threw me a pass and I caught it.  It was cool.

Frankie:  I sexually assaulted Jessie!

(You really can't take him anywhere...)

Christine says Jessie "handed her a pickle". 

Frankie:  I asked him to feed me a pickle!

Caleb:  It was cool.

Frankie:  I was like, can I give you a lap dance?  And he was like, I gotta go...

Christine laughed nervously.  Let me remind you, Frankie J. Grande is OLDER THAN DERRICK.  And this behavior is NOT CUTE.  

They got to go down on the field with the players, and met Jerry Jones.  

Caleb:  Rich, the Vice President of Communications guy who was walking us around was saying his family is the biggest fan of Big Brother, and that his twin boys don't miss an episode.

Zach:  NO WAY!

Frankie:  Two 16 year old boys! 


Caleb:  He said they watch every episode of Big Brother and Survivor.

Zach:  People like, actually watch this show.

(I'll bet Derrick is too worried right now to really enjoy the easy would it be for a fan to yell "Derrick is a cop", right?  You can't shove that genie back in the bottle...)

Frankie:  When I heard people say my name, or his name, and one person said "is that Christine?" and she turned around and they said "that is her!".

They said it was all surreal and weird.

Caleb:  It was weird for us to be there, but it was surreal and weird for them to see us!  They recognized us!

Yep, look at Derrick's face as he listened to this.  Sergeant Derrick is doing a risk assessment right now, and I'll bet he will have a very pointed conversation in the DR about this.

Frankie:  The live feeders know.....

Caleb:  I wish we could at least say "hey" to 'em..every time a fan...


Caleb:  Jerry Jones looked at me and said they needed to suit me up, that I looked like a running back!

Caleb:  We weren't even allowed to talk about the game at all...we couldn't even mention ya'll's names..they would stop us.

Christine:  Yeah, we mentioned the OTEV comp and they said, 'you can't talk about that!".

Zach:  I can't believe you met Dez Bryant..he's probably my favorite player.  I don't even care about getting his autograph...I just want him to say 'hey, what's up".

Frankie:  Well, Caleb saw some hotties...the football players' wives!

Caleb:  Oh my god..they were so hot..they could have their own show...

Donny, asking the important questions:  What about the cheerleaders?  Did you see any of them?

Caleb:  No, they weren't there.

Zach:  You said you're not allowed to wear those hats?

Caleb:  We will be...when they air..

(I guess they can't wear their Cowboys gear on the live feeds until Wednesday's show airs?  Or maybe they can't wear it in their DR sessions?)

Caleb:  They were real strict about Jerry Jones..Rich told everybody before he came down to the field that once we talked to him, it was over.  There would be no reshoots, no redos, nothing.  Once he talked to us and they filmed it, it was over and we'd never see him again.

(I guess the remote Production team was nervous too...they needed to get the footage they needed for the show the first time.)


Later, I heard Caleb say the ate three hamburgers and three hotdogs.  He didn't want to keep eating like that, but "they" encouraged them to do it.  I also  heard him say that several people said "hey...Cowboy!" at him, and one "Mexican dude" yelled, "Beast Mode Cowboy!"   One lady and her daughter called out "Caleb!" and wanted a picture with him, but he had to turn around and couldn't talk to her.

Caleb said it would have been worse if he was wearing his overalls or cowboy hat, but they all were kind of incognito with their Cowboy's garb and they had to pull their hats down low.

On BBAD I watched Frankie's face as this was discussed, and there was something happening there..some pursed lips....some irritation.  Did anybody recognize Frankie?  Did he sense his growing unpopularity?  Did no one know who his half-sister is?

I also read online that Christine said Frankie acted like a diva all day, demanding this and that.  She said he thinks he is a celebrity, so he certainly acted like one.


Beast Mode Cowboy has a look, a distinctive look, and with his crazy persona he is getting noticed.  How GREAT would it be if HE was the one to get cast in some sort of acting role and get some measure of success, INSTEAD of Frankie?

Frankie, who has already said he couldn't even get a manager in Hollywood with all of his connections....

I'm not envisioning Caleb winning an Oscar or anything like that, mind you.  Maybe a part in a movie with The Rock, or Vin Deisel?  Something like that?


During BB14, you may remember that Shane and Danielle got to leave the house after winning a competition.  They were all excited, speculating they would go to the Emmy's or Grammy's or something.  It turned out to be a gymnastics exhibition show, to coincide with the timing of the Olympics.  They got to meet the "Dream Team" but it didn't mean that much because the house guests hadn't been watching the Olympics.

It was anti-climatic, for sure.

Way back during BB4, Jun Song won HoH during a live show and was immediately called to the DR.  Everyone worried there would be immediate nominations or something.   We saw the DR tell Jun that she was going to New York, to the MTV Music Awards, and led her out wearing a blindfold.

She didn't even get to take her clothes or makeup...they gave her all new stuff for the trip.  She took a private plane to New York with a handler and then walked the red carpet at the awards.  If I remember correctly I think her boyfriend was in the crowd yelling for her. (She was from NYC.)

It really was crazy.  They had a competition while she was gone where certain clues were given, and they had to guess where Jun was.  I don't think anyone guessed correctly.  I remember Jun saying on the live feeds that she saw 50 Cent sing "In Da Club" and it was awesome.  She got to watch the show standing in the pit, right in front of the stage.

During BB13, Daniele Donato and Rachel Reilly also got to leave the house to be on a game show.  I don't remember what it was, but neither of them won any cash.  I don't think they went to New York for that, bur of course I could be wrong.


Daniele Donato left the house with Amber ("Wahmber") during BB8 to appear on "Power of 10" and they did indeed fly to NY.  Thank you to @Kareny for correcting me!
