Breakfast Chatter #BB16

But First....

A few more pictures from last night.  Nicole accessorized her Frog Costume with a jaunty pink bow, which was adorable.  This reminded me of BB8 when a group of people had to wear bunny suits and they always used accessories to individualize their looks.

Cody ate something and licked his fingers.

Then he trapped Nicole in a bear hug and kissed her on the cheek, saying that kissing "was his favorite".

Nicole tried to act irritated, but finally gave in and smiled.

 OK.  On to this morning.  Cody and Christine sat outside while she ate her breakfast, and they were both very glad that the sky was overcast.  Christine is not a big fan of the sun...I guess she gets enough sun in Arizona.

Cody was working out this morning, and kept saying that he felt so good being up so early today.  He wants to feel like this everyday.  (Even though every time he stays up all night he says that is the best, too.)

Jocosta is up and is drinking GatorAde to stay hydrated.

There was a rumor on the internet that Victoria stepped out to run some errands, but I found her.  She and Nicole whispered furiously about the horrid Amber, who continues to use Victoria's beauty products.  Even putting your own items in a zipped case inside your basket doesn't keep people out.

Victoria is incensed that Amber has been using her deodorant.  She knows it, because she can usually predict how long it takes to use a certain amount...she made Nicole look at it and they both can't believe how rude and thoughtless Amber is.

Remember the ugly bow headbands that Amber wore for the first few weeks?  Well,  it turns out those were Victoria's...Amber asked to borrow it one day and didn't give it back.  I know Amber has about eight or nine siblings...maybe she is used to just grabbing whatever she can.

Zach made himself a pancake chock full of M&M's.  Everyone was very impressed.  Zach used butter to grease the pan, he says.

Derrick explained that if Zach put a little oil in the center of the pan, and then poured the batter right on top of that, the oil would spread out along with the batter and the edges would get really crispy and brown.

Zach:  Did you go to culinary school?

Derrick:  No.  If I did, I would tell everyone, so they would keep me in the house.  Like Chef Joe!

They gave Joe a shout out as the cameras give us a shot of Zach's pancake.

And a close up.  The M&M coating is melting all over the pancake and looks smeary, but it is the taste that will matter here.

Zach even cleaned his pan for Derrick, who wanted to make himself an egg white omelet.

Cody was eyeballing Zach's pancake, too.

Derrick put a big wad of spinach on top of his eggs.

They discussed how nice the weather is today.  Devin says it isn't overcast very often, but the people in California love it.  Zach says in Florida it rains every single day at 3:00 pm.

(He's right....but only Central or South Florida.)

They discussed the possibility of a competition to watch a movie in the HoH.

Derrick:  If one of you jamokes win, you'd better take me, too.

Zach:  Oh, don't worry.

Derrick:  Watch Zach be like, I'll take my girl girl girl Nicole, and the two of us will be standing there holding our dicks.

They all laugh and Cody says that is entirely possible.  Cody whispered that Brittany is forgetful and often leaves food out on the counter.  He says she left out a package of salmon and ruined it.  They also say that she doesn't really trust them at all, no matter what she says, and will get them out whenever she has a chance.

Derrick:  She thinks we're after her...and she's right...

This is Derrick's breakfast, and now Cody is going to cook his own eggs.  He doesn't use egg whites..he uses the whole egg.

Derrick scraped the pan clean for Cody while Cody remembered that in Season 12 the movie the house guests got to see was The Other Guys.  Cody loves that movie and started saying direct quotes about drug dealers.  (I think this was a cop movie...)

BB keeps telling Cody to stop quoting movies, while Derrick cracks up at Cody's lines.  Cody and Derrick both agree that the non-stick pan they have is anything but...the food always sticks to it.

Derrick asked if Zach snowboards...he says Zach needs to fly up to Rhode Island and they will go on a trip.

Derrick:  He (Cody) can just drive down, and my brother will come with us, too, and we can drive up to New Hampshire for the weekend.

Derrick sounded particularly excited about waiting to buy "all the booze" across the New Hampshire state line, since there is no tax on booze in that state.  (New Hampshire is expected to be the next state to legalize pot, too, from what I hear.)  Derrick says they can rent a house and just party and snowboard all weekend.  Zach was worried about the cost but Derrick says you can rent a house for the whole weekend for $400.

Derrick:  And you guys will love the is always full of beautiful girls and you guys can just destroy it.

Cody:  I'm crushing that, dude.

In the backyard Zach whispered a devious plan to Christine, who loved it.  The cameras didn't switch over in time for us to hear what it was, but Zach said he thought "she would totally believe it and it would be funny".  He asked Christine to keep it quiet for now.

Christine has a great laugh and all the guys love talking to her.

Victoria is getting all dolled up.  I think she needs to lose at least two feet of that drags her down but I know she doesn't feel comfortable without it.

Brittany is getting ready, too, and Victoria asked Brittany if she believed the rumors of Zach being related to Amanda.

Brittany:  No, I don't.  Pao Pao said A LOT of things on her way out of this house....

And with that, I believe the Team America challenge this week is complete.  Devin came in to put on hand lotion and tried to have a little conversation with Brittany about how she slept, etc.

Then Amber came in and Devin gave her advice on how to sleep to avoid getting blemishes.  (She's a model, dumbass..she knows...)

Amber zipped her hair up when she was putting on a hoodie last night and got her hair stuck in the zipper.  This is one of those stories that everyone loves to hear.

Good Night Cowboy. #BB16

Like John Boy, right?  Anybody remember The Waltons?


The crew in the kitchen finally admit they've had enough, and start drifting off to bed.

This is Cody, giving Nicole the Frog a good long hug goodnight.  I like this picture because you can see Cody three times---also in his memory wall photo and the reflection in the glass.  Can you imagine if Cody was an identical triplet?  I don't think the world could handle that.  He certainly wouldn't have time to be on Big Brother, so I guess we should be glad he's a one and only.

(Although I've heard him say his brother Paul is more handsome than he is...)

Hayden watched that hug.

Christine told Zach goodnight, and he told her she is a "great woman".  Not great enough to get a hug, apparently.

Frankie stopped by the HoH to discuss the Team America challenge.  Derrick thinks that the challenge was an easy one, and he doesn't want to lose an easy $5,000, so if the rumor doesn't spread again like he planned, he's going to be a little more pushy tomorrow.  I think they have a certain number of days to make it happen to win the money.  They each picked one person to tell the rumor to, and Derrick chose Victoria, but so far she hasn't been spreading it.

Derrick:  All Victoria does is talk shit about people, but she won't spread this one fucking rumor?  Who would have thought?

(Maybe Victoria likes Zach...and doesn't want to hurt his game....I can see that happening...)

Hayden started bundling up, putting on socks and a hoodie to get ready for bed in the Have Not room.

And Zach's tooth-brushing routine is exhausting.  Is Zach's dad a dentist?  Because somebody has instilled good dental habits in that boy.  He brushes, rinses, and then brushes again, at least twice.

Caleb had been outside trying to teach Amber how to play pool.  He proceeded to tell Zach all of his philosophies about how in pool, you have to learn to use the pool cue first.  In his rambling speech he likens the pool cue to a golf club, and then a gun, going on an on.

The good thing about Zach brushing his teeth is that he couldn't respond when Caleb was explaining to him how important it is to hold a golf club correctly.  I could see the irritation in Zach's eyes.

(Zach HATES Caleb but is doing a good job to make it seem otherwise, stroking his ego and egging him on sometimes.)

Caleb also practiced his speech for either the PoV ceremony or the live show, and they joked that he should end it with "Beast Mode Cowboy Out", and Frankie encouraged him to pretend to twirl two revolvers and put them in his holsters.  (OMG I hope Caleb does that....)

Amber came in the house, too, and started walking slowing to where she needs to be.

Caleb is sporting yet another new look today, wearing the pink shawl like a Jesus robe or something, still talking and talking.  Look at Zach's face.  Ha ha ha.

Here is Zach spitting.

And then continuing to brush.  Damn that is great Dental Dedication.

Frankie tottered to the bedroom wearing pumps, saying he felt like a tipsy girl on the way home.

Caleb met with Amber in The Hive for a few minutes....and he brought up the rumor about Zach being Amanda's cousin.  He's not sure if it's true, but he thinks it might be part of some twist.

(This may be the conversation that wins the Team America challenge, but if Caleb has already repeated the rumor to Amber earlier, it may not count.  Who knows.)

Caleb is wearing Derrick's HoH robe to keep him warm in the Have Not room.  He's not allowed to use any of the HoH blankets, but the robe is allowed.  And speaking of Derrick:

Caleb:  That is one guy in here who I totally trust...with everything.

Amber:  I agree. It's a good thing that he's HoH.

They talked about how Devin is going around the house saying that Donny won't use the PoV, or he heard that Donny will use it, but Derrick will put a girl on the block instead of Devin.

Caleb says everyone  knows it's all a load of bullshit, and that Devin's going home.

Caleb cautioned Amber to be careful who she speaks with.....Donny, Brittany and Jocosta are up to something, and may take things she says out of context and try to flip her.


The PoV Ceremony is today, where Donny will exercise his option to use the PoV he won, and Derrick will nominate someone else.  I will be covering that action, of course.

And this is the time of year where the CRAZY fans come out of the woodwork.  I"m not talking Super Fans like most of us...I'm talking the people who passionately HATE certain house guests for reasons that just seem insane.  These people often passionately LOVE other house guests, and often imagine all sorts of fantasy love affairs and showmances between them.

I have already seen evidence of The Crazy, but am choosing to ignore it.  It can be really funny, but I will use judgement as to when things need to be nipped in the bud so we can all enjoy this GREAT Big Brother season.

I think these are the same type of fans who try to contact the house guests families and/or employers, stirring up trouble. FYI to those people:  nothing is truly anonymous anymore....they can find you and shut you up, so please try to control yourselves and don't forget to take your meds.
