A Trip Around the Live Feeds to Survey Damage From the ZachQuake #BB16

Needless to say there is a lot of action on the live feeds this afternoon, after that action-packed nomination ceremony.

Cody looks stunned.  I don't know yet if he was aware at all of Zach's planned nomination speech.  I'm not sure he was, since his role this week was to get right back to flirting with all of the girls.  He didn't stay up in the HoH last night, kicking it instead in the Rock Room.

Frankie came in the Storage Room and made a case for why they can't let Zach be the final HoH this week.

Hey Boo.

Frankie says someone needs to drill it in to Victoria's head that she needs to lose the BoB this week.  He knows Jocosta is going to fight.

Nicole wanted to know if Frankie had any idea what Zach was going to say.

Frankie:  No, I didn't.  I mean, he kept changing his mind about what he was going to do about four times, and he kept saying it was going to be epic, but I had no idea.

(Of course he was right there when Zach put it all together...)

Nicole says she had no idea that she and Christine would be nominated together, but she did suspect she would be on the block today.  Check my DR, she says.  (Of course, no one can ever check your that is an empty statement.)

 Meanwhile, Victoria is sobbing in The Hive, while Jocosta tries to pump her up.  They both agree they have to win today...there is no other option.

Victoria:  I have done nothing in this house!  And nothing in this game!  So why does this keep happening?

(ha ha ha ha)

Victoria knows her parents will be upset to see her picked on every week.  Jocosta says that no matter what the competition is, they need to maintain constant eye contact throughout the entire thing, to make sure they are working together to win.

Jocosta:  Well, no matter what happens, I'm not gonna be rachet on TV...I have two boys.. and a husband...and a sister...and I'm not going to embarrass them..and God...I'm not going to embarrass him!  And have him look down on me and say what have I created?

Not a moment too soon, the cameras change to the HoH room, where Donny is sitting calmly chatting with Zach and Frankie.

Frankie says at least Zach put on a show for them, and admits nominating Jocosta was not a very heroic thing to do, since she's such an easy target.

Frankie:  You understand why I did it, though?

Donny:  Yeah, I do.

Frankie:  Did you enjoy this episode of Big Brother?

Donny:  Yes, I did.  But it's about time for somebody else to walk up here, so we better stop talking.

Zach:  Yeah, it's time for Amber to show up.

Donny:  She inventories every room, every ten minutes...

(ha ha ha)

Zach pours a bowl of Apple Jacks and starts crunching away. They all say they will use the PoV no matter what, and the backdoor is implied but not spoken of out loud.  Donny gets up to leave and makes a small speech.

Donny:  I want to thank both of you gentlemen for not puttin' me up...I've been up there three times already and I'm tired of it.

Zach:  No problem Donny.  You played a big part in getting Devin out of here so you've definitely paid it forward.

As soon as the door clicked shut behind Donny, Zach had something to say to Frankie.

Zach:  I think I put another rumor out there....I might have told Nicole not to trust Christine...

Frankie:  Okay...

Zach:  Christine came up to me and said I'm not pissed at you about the nomination...I'm pissed that you told Nicole not to trust now they're working against each other...

(This is neither here nor there, but  I like Zach's new cap.  It is very becoming and I was getting tired of that pink one. Also, that is his Grandma's refrigerator magnet he is wearing as a pendant.  LOL.)


After watching BBAD, I realize there is a reason why I like Zach's new cap---it is an FSU hat!  My alma mater.  The hat is not new, and Zach thinks it is a joke since he obviously went to UF.  He thinks it is his uncle's hat.  Zach wearing an FSU hat makes it even better...he has balls.  Because the two schools have a HUGE rivalry.


Zach:  We'll see how it plays out...but I'm stirring up a lot of shit in this a good way though. I think this is the best thing I could do..

Frankie says it is making people nuts, but they will understand the plan at some point.  They agree all Caleb cares about is keeping Amber off the block---he doesn't care that Zach nominated Christine, who is supposed to be in his alliance.

Zach plowed through another bowl of cereal, saying he wants to go downstairs and tell Nicole to "stop crying and being a frickin' baby".  Zach slurps and crunches his cereal and the noise is very loud.

(I guess his microphone is "turnt up".)

Derrick arrives and sits on the couch and they wait for him to speak.

Derrick:  Wow.

Frankie:  Status?

Derrick:  Well, everyone is kind of separated from each other down there.  How do you want me to play this?

Zach:  ***crunch crunch***  Honestly, I don't know.  Christine hates me...because I might have told Nicole not to trust her.

Derrick:  So you don't want me to say anything to them?

Zach:  Honestly, I just want Nicole to cry right up until the time of the BoB, and then blow it so I can be the HoH.  If anything, I might say worse things to them..

They agree to say that Zach's actions were spontaneous, and that he is going to do whatever he wants to do, playing by the seat of his pants.  Both HoH's have a plan to target someone other than the nominees, so whatever happens they can say it was all a plan.

Zach rips into a package of candy and says "it is what it is".

Today's Drama, Brought to You By Zach Rance #BB16

Once again, Zach, we salute you!  Thank you for not making this another boring Friday!

We speak your name!

Zach's Nomination Performance Stuns and Shocks #BB16

Hayden:  I was so shocked, I didn't know whether to laugh or cry.

That green elbow belongs to Christine!  And she is not crying!  

Christine:  Oh Jesus...we're going to win!

Cody, repeating what Zach said: look real cute in your German-tard, you Froot Loop dingus..?

(C' just know Christine wants to laugh...)

Hayden:  It's's absurd....

Cody:  He's off the rocker....but he's clearly on a power trip..

Christine:  I don't even know what he just said to least I get an extra competition..

Amber bursts into the Storage room with her game face on, followed by Nicole.  Christine starts to giggle 

Christine:  A Froot Loop dingus!

Nicole:  Oh, after I heard your's I knew mine was coming!

Nicole:  That was unbelievable...

Hayden:  I don't even know what to say!

Nicole:  Did I break the silence by totally putting my head down and laughing?

Hayden:  You just burst out laughing like this (demonstrates spitting and laughing)

Christine:  I didn't see that coming, but with Zach I should have known.

Amber wants to get right down to business, telling Christine that she and Nicole are a strong pair, and can win today.  Christine says she wishes she hadn't "screwed herself" and feels sick.  I guess she and Nicole both need to eat some slop, pronto.


I don't even know what a "dingus" is, or if I've spelled it correctly.   What exactly is a "dingus"?   Is this a word that they can use on CBS?  Can The Chenbot repeat it?  (ha ha ha ha)

And can someone tell me what type of snack that is in the light blue bag in the picture above?  I'm assuming it is a German snack since they got a bunch of bags after the PoV competition.  It looks like it might be marshmallow-based, but I can't quite figure it out.

Frankie Does Damage Control, Throws Shade on Zach #BB16

Frankie is in the Fire Room with Victoria, who is sniffling and crying.  Frankie may or may not have nominated her, but the real story is going to be Zach's performance during the nomination ceremony.

(Frankie did nominate Victoria...)

Victoria:  But why Nicole?

Frankie:  I don't know...he's a lunatic...and Christine is sick to her stomach, throwing up,...this is going to be a mess!

Frankie:  And if you win HoH, you can put me up!  But not in a double a double eviction, you can put them up....don't're not going home this're a warrior princess...that's what you are...

Victoria:  I knew it was coming...

Frankie:  I wanted to prep you, but I didn't know what to do.

Frankie:  You're going to get through this week, and then we'll be happy!

Zach Called Nicole a "Froot Loop Dingus" #BB16

Nicole:  I've never in my life....

She's being comforted by her friends now.

Nicole:  A Froot Loop dingus?

Amber:  You did the right thing by just laughing..

Jocosta offers to get her something to eat.

Nicole:  Yeah...I need to eat something before this...

(the BoB, coming up this afternoon)

Somewhere inside, Nicole surely knows this is TV Gold...

Zach Plans to Attack With His Nominations #BB16

The nomination ceremony is actually happening right now. Zach prepared this morning, and plans to rock his HoH Robe during the ceremony.  He was trying to put his Grandma's refrigerator magnet around his neck with some dental floss, but had some problems with it so I"m not sure if we will see that on TV.

As you know, Team America's challenge is to incite some sort of fight during the nomination or PoV ceremonies this week.  I think they have to "call" the fight ahead of time in the DR, like you have to "call" your pool shot beforehand to make it count.

Zach is going to help them accomplish this, by planning a brutal speech to nominate Nicole and Christine.

He plans to tell Christine that if you look up the word "floater" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of Christine and Jenn City holding hands, because both of them are irrelevant and never get called to the DR.

He's going to go a little easier on Nicole, saying she looked cute in her German-tard but for a Super Fan she was clueless and didn't see this coming.

Frankie and Derrick are both hoping Christine "comes for him" during the ceremony, so they can win their money of course.  Zach seems unconcerned about that, saying they can clear things up with her later.  Derrick recommended that Zach not to get too personal, but to stick to the script.

Earlier this morning, Zach and Frankie kind of discussed what they wanted to do as they got ready for bed.  At the time, Zach kept saying that being HoH is hard.  He really enjoyed hanging out in the HoH room with his friends who won, but having to nominate and strategize is harder than expected.

Zach says Frankie's grandpa looks just like him, and that his grandma is beautiful.  Note the picture next to it with Frankie and his grandpa laying out in the sun, Frankie in a bikini and his grandpa wearing a suit.  Frankie has mentioned this picture several times on the live feeds.

Caleb came in, still clutching that stupid monkey.  WTF?  Why is he carrying that damn thing around?

Caleb is upset about Amber, and is implying he does not like her behavior tonight.  He implies they shouldn't put her on the block, but should target her after the PoV, if possible.

Zach:  Dude, you've been to the moon and back for that girl already...several times.

Caleb:  Not no more, though.

(I've heard that before...)

Zach Eats Sour Patch Kids, Paces #BB16

I'll just tell you right now there will be a lot of Zach Rance on the website this week.  So all of you haters can just love to hate that, if you must.

Even Zach's haters would have to agree that he is entertaining. And deliciously unpredictable.

Frankie is in the bathroom and Zach paces, popping Sour Patch Kids in his mouth, but only one at a time, which shows remarkable restraint, if you ask me.

Zach:  Dude this is rough...who is our target?

Zach examines one of Frankie's pictures and announces he looks just like his grandpa.

Zach turned on the Spy Screen and scratched his butt, simultaneously.

Zach:  So...Amber, Nicole and Christine? You think?...OK.

Frankie's mic is turned off right now, which is probably a good thing.


I like to follow the house guests on Twitter after they are evicted, to learn what they have to say about the game.  I am still following Joey, who doesn't post very often.

I had to give up on Pao Pao.....she did post some interesting links to her music and pictures, but it was just too much for me.

And last night I had to unfollow Devin....he had just a little too much to say about the game and posted a little too much about it.  He does watch the live feeds, and BBAD, and tweets while doing so, but I just couldn't take it anymore.  He was a little too high on his own "game play", but does seem to be a very nice person.

If I miss something good on his Twitter, please let me know.
