Bagels, Bees and Bugs #BB16

Christine and Nicole are sitting outside murmuring about what they should do this week, and who they would put up on the block if they win HoH this week.  It sounds like they don't need to win very badly, nor would they want to.  Nicole went through almost every house guest and said she wouldn't put them up.

Nicole doesn't want Caleb or Amber to win HoH.  Christine doesn't want Donny or Jocosta to win, and is terrified at the prospect.

(Christine really has been biting the bullet and trying to exercise with both Donny and Jocosta, walking around the backyard with them.  It is kind of painful to hear her overact with them...everything they do is "AWESOME" but she is really trying to work them, and doesn't show them how she really feels.  I don't think it's working, by the way, but it will keep her out of the Have Not room next week due to all of the exercise.)

Nicole:  It would be great if Victoria won HoH next week....Hayden could totally tell her what to do...

Christine:  And Derrick, too...

They both like the idea of that.

 Nicole ate a bagel.

Donny sat down with them, which abruptly ended the HoH talk, and then speak of the devil, Jocosta herself showed up and perched nearby. (Ha ha ha the irony ha ha ha)

Donny swatted at a wasp and Nicole and Christine flinched.  They are scared of wasps, but Nicole has never been bitten before.

Donny:  Oh, I get bit every year.  My job is to kill bees for the school, so every year one of 'em gets me.

Christine:  OH MY GOD!  (classic overacting)

Donny:  And the thing with wasps is, once one of 'em gets near you, they release a pheremone on you that tells all the other ones to come over to you, and they chase you.  I've literally been bitten and run the length of a football field and when I get in the truck, a few of them are there with me.

Christine:  OH MY GOD!  That is my worse nightmare!

Donny:  So what we do is, we wait until it's cool, and then we pour gasoline in the'll melt their wings off....gasoline is strong.  (looks at camera)  But that was our secret potion, so everybody needs to just forget that...

I think Christine was too stunned to pretend that was awesome.

Christine:  Well, maybe you'll save someone's life.  I've only been bitten by a bee three times, but that was not a good experience.

Donny:  I got stung nine times.  I had my hedge trimmers on, and the bees don't like the vibrations.  I had my headphones on for the noise, and this other guy seen 'em coming out but I couldn't hear him yelling at me about it.  They all got on my pants and started stingin' my legs.   I was right there in front of the Administration building, where all the big shots work.  I had my hand on the door knob and thought, I can't take them in there, so I ran all the way to my truck and killed nine of them hanging on my pants.  The bee sting burns worse to me than anything.

He also says last year he felt something on his back, and put his hand back there and a wasp stung him.

Donny:  I haven't been stung yet this year.  I always get stung every year....I just want to go ahead and get it over with.

Christine: Well go over there and grab that wasp Donny!


Yesterday I watched Cody take several pictures of Nicole with his HoH camera, but when the pictures were posted on the CBS website all of the Nicole pictures were deleted.  I'm guessing they don't want to show the German-tard until tonight's CBS show, where the PoV will be broadcast.

Which is stupid, because anybody who goes online to look at the damn HoH pictures surely already knows exactly what is going on in that house, right?

Who Will be the Chicken Fat This Week? #BB16

I told you yesterday about the Chicken Fat song....and Julie told us last week that the Fitness Trackers would be determining who will be the Have Nots next week.

Here are the updates as of July 21st...they are several days behind pulling the information together for the CBS website, but here are the bottom five house guests with the latest information posted.

Couple of interesting notes:

*  As of one day earlier, Brittany was #1 on the list, and only one day later she plummeted to the bottom.  This demonstrates how after she finished her soccer kicks, she has barely moved.  I heard her tell Cody that Big Brother offered to get her a walker, but she declined.  She really wants to walk out of the house in high heels.  And I certainly don't expect her to survive this week's vote, so we need to take her out of the picture to determine who the Have Nots will be.

*  Derrick was in the bottom four yesterday, and on day later pulled out of it.  Anything can happen, really, but since the house guests are expected to be locked in later this afternoon until the live show there probably won't be too much moving going on.

*  What if Cody, Caleb and Amber are all Have Nots next week?  Trapped in that little room together?  Sleep-deprived and starving?

*  I really wanted Frankie to be a Have Not next week.  I know he has issues with his hands, but they can give him mittens or hand warmers to wear.  I just wanted him to lose the ability to drop in on every conversation like he does now. (Yes, I know his grandfather died, but Frankie's life in the game goes on...)

Cody Blogs: He's a Family Guy #BB16

Cody has written his HoH blog, and the entire post is included below.  I heard him talking to Derrick after he wrote it, and he said he once he got started, he just typed and typed.  Cody loves his family, that's for sure.

I’M ON BIG BROTHER!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

This is such a surreal experience and I feel blessed to have been given this opportunity so I'd like to give a HUGE THANKS to the people that helped make it happen! 

Daddyo!! I miss you! This house is crazier than we could have ever imagined while we were watching the seasons over the years. I bet you never thought I'd be one of the people volunteering to be a have not in the first week, but hey, it’s BIG BROTHER BABY!! That slop stuff is just no bueno... I lost so much weight and had the worst sleeping schedule. I hope everything I'm doing in this game is making you and everyone at home proud I'm kind of sorry I took one of your Father’s Day gifts but it must have had some luck because it ended up being the shirt I wore in the HOH challenge I won so WHADDDDDUPPPP!! I honestly never thought I'd miss messing with you on a daily basis as much as I do and I hope Mommy and Angelina are taking it easy on you! I hope everything is amazing at home and I can't wait to see you, I love you Daddyo! P.S I hope you’re not screaming at me through the TV.

MAMA!! I miss you so much! I hope I'm making you proud and I wish I was able to hear from you too when I won HOH. If you’re ganging up on Daddy with Angelina while I'm not home there's going to be serious issues when I get back! I try to think every single day about how you and daddy would want me to be making decisions in this house and I'm hoping that I'm making you guys proud. Try to keep daddy from losing it at home without me because I know he's been struggling :). I miss you more and more everyday mama and love you so much! I can't wait to see you! Paulino and Tiny Meanie!! I have to say (no offense mommy and daddy) I miss you guys the most :(. I think about you guys every single day and wish I could get 1 dang phone call to at least hear something from you guys. Tiny, I hope you saw one of my shout-outs to you on your birthday. It killed me to not be able to be there to spend the day with you. Hey Paul… you better be taking Angelina out with you everywhere you go or you’re getting a swift clean kick to the butt when I get out! I hope everything is going amazing with the gym at home, Paulino, and you’re tearing stuff up for when I get out. I hate not knowing what's going on with you because everything you do makes me want to do that much more for myself. I love you guys so much and can't wait to see you! Let Billy know that he's THE BIGGEST! Give Stryker and Apollo a HUGE hug and kiss from me!! 

This game is so wild and being HOH makes it that much crazier. The whole flirty social game I'm playing is not an easy one to keep up with. I know as a fan watching the show I never thought it would be as tough as it was to look people in the face when you put them on the block. That is easily the toughest aspect of being the HOH in this house and I give props to everyone in the past for making it look so easy. 

Everyone else out there that is watching and reading up on all of this, Thank you so much for the support that you give to us, it is amazing to know that we have so many people watching and rooting us on.

TMZ Reports on The Death in Frankie's Family #BB16

There were "deathbed wishes" , of course.

Miscellaneous Pictures and Useless Info #BB16

The first series of pictures features Hayden, Cody and Amber taking snaps with the HoH camera yesterday afternoon.  This was towards the end of the hour-long photo session.

Only someone thin as a rail would dare wear a top printed with an assortment of donuts, right?

Cody got those cheesy white sunglasses in his HoH basket---they were confiscated from him when he first went into the house, from what I've heard him say.

Now let's skip ahead to after 2:00 am, as Cody and Derrick talk about the game.  Brittany came in and was obviously toasted.  She went on and on about not wanting to leave the game before Victoria.  She was very frustrated that nobody she approached would tell her who they were voting for, so Derrick told her to try again on Thursday.

Cody and Derrick started flirting with Brittany, which is always fun when someone is buzzed like Brittany is.  She said she can get really wasted on about 4 beers in the outside world.

Derrick:  Can you imagine her at 18 or 19 (i.e. when she got married)?  Smokin' hot...

Cody:  Oh, a smoke show!

Cody asked Brittany about the 35 year old guy she was seeing before she came in the house---is that something he should have to worry about?  Brittany said that she tried to talk to him to find out what his feelings were, and he said he'd see her again when she came back home.

Derrick:  Well, you were going on a reality show for the summer!  What's he supposed to say?

Brittany:  He made the choice to go to the King's game, when it was the last night we could spend time together...

Derrick:  A Kings game?

Brittany:  Well, it was a playoff game.

Cody:  A play off game? Well....

Brittany:  I spent the rest of the time with my was too late for him.

Cody:  That's cold.  And bitter...

Brittany hasn't introduced him to her kids yet.  She says that only happens when a relationship is official.  Cody asked her how many instagram pictures she has.

Brittany:  Oh, about 3,500.

Cody:  Well that's how many messages you are going to have waiting for you....comments on every one of them when you leave here.

Derrick thought his hair looked outstanding tonight.

Zach came in and wanted to know why Derrick couldn't stop talking about Production.  Derrick had been talking about the stipend with Cody, who didn't believe they would actually get one. Derrick said he actually read every word of the contract they all had to sign and they get $1,000 for each week they appear on the show or in sequester.

(I don't think the winner gets the stipend, though.  The winning prizes are listed as such on your 1099, too, so they are not taxed as self-employment income.  The stipends would qualify for self-employment taxes, though, in addition to income taxes, of course.  California taxes also have to be paid on all BB earnings, since the money was generated in that state.)

Brittany made an unkind comment about Cody's back, which is breaking out with psoriasis.  Cody was offended and Brittany apologized, saying she was just trying to be funny.  She offered to rub the psoriasis medicine on Cody's back, so I guess he forgave her for the smartass comment.

Zach came over to get a look, saying it didn't look too bad to him.  Cody said the skin problem is hereditary, and he is lucky because he doesn't have too bad a case of it, but it might get worse with age.

(I worked with people who had it, and their hands looked like burn really can be horrible.)

I could tell Derrick wanted to leave the room and go to bed, but he didn't want to leave Cody and Brittany alone.  (Probably so she wouldn't start begging Cody for a vote.)  Once Zach said he was ready to get in bed, then Derrick left the room, leaving Zach as the chaperone.

Brittany stroked Cody's arm for a few minutes.  He said his grandma used to do that, with her "long Italian fingernails".

Cody then said it was Brittany's turn, and started stroking her arm.  You can see Zach trying to shut them out and sleep on the other side of the bed.

Downstairs Amber, Jocosta and Frankie were getting ready for bed.  Frankie's acne is flaring up and he is considering going back on acne medication.  Derrick joined them, and I think Hayden was there too for a few minutes, flossing and brushing.

Derrick brought up Julie Chen saying this summer would be one long twisty twist after another, and they try to speculate about what that means in terms of Have Nots, double evictions, etc.  There was much discussion about Brittany being upstairs in bed between Cody and Zach, and also about who would be sleeping in what bed downstairs, and with whom.

After much discussion they realized Victoria was sleeping with Nicole, and Derrick said he didn't think Brittany would be coming downstairs tonight.  Jocosta was VERY upset about this, muttering that it just didn't look right....and Brittany wasn't thinking clearly....and she has kids.

Frankie went upstairs to find out what was going on.  He came right back down and said Brittany planned to sleep upstairs, and was in bed between Cody and Zach.

Jocosta paced, and was very upset about the whole thing.

Amber flossed, but did so in front of her compact mirror, probably so the entire internet would not see what was going on between her teeth.  Derrick said goodnight, and gave them each a family smooch as he left for bed.

Jocosta:  Amber, I have gas.  I am very worried.  Why am I so upset about this?  What does she think those boys can do to help her?  What if her kids watch this on their cellphones?  It just isn't right.

Amber continued to floss.
