As Expected, the Have Nots Get More Food #BB16

At around 6:00 pm BBT yesterday, the Have Nots learned what America had chosen for them to eat this week, along with the usual slop and protein shakes.

They were locked down in the HoH Room while the foods were displayed. The Spy Screen was de-activated during this time, of course.

They see the pizza boxes on the way downstairs and start cheering.  Caleb is the first one there, followed by Nicole.  Both of them are Have Nots, you know.  America chose "Deep Fish Pizza" which involves pizza and seafood, obviously.

Nicole: That fish looks nasty.

Derrick, running through and clapping:  Let's go America!  Thank you very much!

Derrick is a Have Not, too, you know.

Frankie announces that there are clams, and sardines, both canned.

There are dead fish displayed on the table along with the canned foods, and Caleb says he can scale them, no problem, so they can cook with them, too.  Supposedly Jocosta is on slop, too this week, after something that happened during the PoV competition.

Frankie reads the card from Big Brother with his usual theatrical flair.  Take a look at the picture below, and remember that Frankie told the house guests that he is 26. Yes, 26.  But in reality he is 31, which is older than Derrick.  Frankie knows that, too, because I heard him quiz Derrick hard a few weeks ago regarding exactly when his birthday is.  (Derrick was 29 when he applied to be on Big Brother, but is 30 now.)

I think 31 is a stretch, actually, and want to see his birth certificate before I can believe it.

Donny tries to pump Jocosta up, with her sour face.  She looks so different with her hair pulled up...I was like, who the hell is that?

Jocosta:  I just said to Zach that if I could choose it would be fish, any fish and I would eat it.

That crab on display is plastic, obviously, so I hope Jocosta doesn't try to gnaw on that.

Caleb threatens to bite the head off one of the fish, and someone yells "Do it", so he did.  The camera didn't even have time to center in on him, but he did it.

As I recall, Caleb was also the brave person who tasted the tripe, too.  Zach is yelling in the background about "Beast Mode Cowboy" and it is funny.  Nicole is disgusted and paces nervously.

Amber is all pissy about only getting the few whole fish that are on display.  She even checked the storage room to see if there were more whole fish and now she bitches about it.

You're not even a Have Not, Amber, so Know Your Role and Shut Your Hole.  You can have all the fish you want on Thursday night.  And for the rest of the summer.

Caleb tells Zach that what he just did was "on TV, baby!"  But I don't think the Have Not foods have been seen on the CBS show yet.  Derrick is ecstatic, and shows Christine that the pizza mix from the storage room, which is gluten-free.

Zach Puts the Attack Down on Caleb #BB16

And Caleb never even saw it coming....

Since Hayden won the PoV yesterday, he plans to use it to save Victoria, which allows Frankie to nominate someone to join Jocosta on the block.  The PoV ceremony will happen on Monday morning, as it usually does.

Frankie planned to backdoor Amber this week, but only if they can get Caleb's blessing.  Or maybe Caleb's agreement is a better way to phrase that.  Frankie has said that if Caleb objects, he will be the one going on the block.

But I can't see that happening.  Caleb is loyal to his alliance and will not put them up. They expect a big physical competition coming up, probably endurance, and the Detonators know Caleb has the heart to hang on until his arms fall off, so they want to keep him until then, at least.

OK.  So their mission is to get Caleb on board with the plan to boot Amber.  And Zach has been dropping little bombs everywhere to get Caleb going.  At 3:00 am BBT, Zach and Caleb are alone in the backyard, playing pool.  Amber is in the kitchen with Nicole, Hayden, Christine and Jocosta, laughing as they clean out the fridge and talk about how people bogart the sliced turkey.

Zach is totally pumping Caleb up about how great he is at pool, and Caleb goes right along with it.

Zach:  Damn, you're fucking running it right now...oh my god..

Caleb brings up Amber, saying she's not in the kitchen anymore.

Zach:  Dude, she literally has no fucking idea what is going on...

Caleb:  What did you say to her?

Zach:  Just what you told me to say...I asked her what is the deal with you and Caleb.  And she said (imitating Amber's voice) I don't know...he's making this way bigger of a deal than it actually is...

Caleb, sternly:  She said that again?

Zach:  Yeah.

Caleb:  'Kay.  And?

Zach:  And I was like, honestly, Caleb and I have gotten to be real good friends in the house, and I talk to him, and honestly he is the one person in this house that you can trust more than anyone....and she was like 'yeah, I know, blah blah blah' and then she said "I don't really need him...I'm here to play my own game".  And that pretty much said it all right there...

Caleb is silent, listening, so Zach kept going.

Zach:...and after that I was like, Caleb is my friend and you aren't really thanking him properly..and she was like "I've been playing my own game this whole time...blah blah blah".  So, I dunno dude.

He taps his pool cue on the table, waiting.

Caleb:  It's cool.  She can play her own game in the hotseat on Thursday.

Zach:  Yup.

Caleb:  We'll see how much she can play on her own then...

Zach:  Right?  That's what I'm sayin'....make her sweat a little bit you know?

Caleb:  I'll send her home.  It don't bother me none!

Caleb, sounding angrier:  Fine.  That's what she thinks?  That she's been playin' her own game!  No you haven't!  You've won one HoH, and been saved by all of us!  You're welcome for bringing you in.

Zach:  And somehow she thinks that she's the reason why Devin is gone, too.

Caleb:  Huh?

Zach:  Yeah.

Caleb:  She had no part in that!

Zach:  Yeah.. she said she's mostly the reason why Devin is gone...she's the first person who stood up to him!

FISH.  Damn.

When the feeds return they continue to discuss putting Amber in the hot seat, and Zach reiterates what he told her about Caleb being the most loyal person in the house.  And they both pile on about how Amber never thanks Caleb for anything.

Caleb:  So honestly, she said nothing good that whole time?

Zach:  Nothing!

Caleb:  Nothing.

Zach:  Nothing!  And I was like, how did the date go?  And she was like "well, it went okay but I don't really like him like that, and I don't want to hurt his feelings..

(Oh boy.)

Caleb:  That's exactly what she said?

Zach:  Dude. Yeah.  So...

Caleb chalks up his stick and mutters "great".

Zach:  So, let's put her in the hot seat bro!  Make her sweat bro!  Because she's blind as a bat dude!  Blind as a fucking bat!

Caleb is so flustered he hit the wrong ball.

Caleb:  You already know that I"m gonna ask her if she said that?

Zach:  Yeah.  And she also said she's gonna try not to talk to you, either.  She said she's a human being and it's not right how you ignore her.

Caleb:  She kind of said the same thing to Cody.

Zach imitates Amber saying this, that she's a human being and all.

Caleb:  Yeah.  I know what time it is...

They set up a new game of pool (Zach:  I'll rack, you crack) and they agree that Zach's conversation with Amber went south.

Caleb:  The last time I took somebody's word for it, I regretted it.  So I'm going to ask her...

Zach: Oh, I think you should have stopped talking to her two weeks ago.  I wouldn't lie to you, but you can ask her...

Caleb:  She can sit in the hot seat then...

(I don't think Caleb has any idea that Amber will be voted out.....I think he thinks putting her on the block will teach her a lesson.)

Now Caleb is stuck on the fact that Amber said he "didn't like him like that", and he goes over all of the moments they shared together, and what she said, and what he said, and then what she said to that...blah blah blah.

Zach says that Amber's been treating him like shit in this house, and he's done more than enough in this house.

Caleb:  It's all gravy...the world knows who I am.

Zach:  Beast mode Cowboy!  Dude, you're going to have girls all over you out there.

Caleb:  Oh, it's just because I'm in this house that I'm attracted to her.

Caleb also said he would never like a girl who didn't "meal plan and worship God".

Meal plan?  WTF?

TMZ Asks Amber's Family About the Death Curse #BB16

And this is a little low, even for TMZ.

But with no racist comments in the house, and hardly any nudity, there is nothing else for them to cover, I guess.

I'll say this:  If any of Amber's grandparents are going to die while she's in the Big Brother house, they better do it quickly....  because Amber's ass is out the door this week.  Or that's the plan, anyway.

You can read the TMZ story here, but there isn't much too it.  I think the juiciest thing is that they found such a strange picture of Amber for the story, right?

PS: I will feel HORRIBLE if someone in Amber's family actually dies this week.  But hey, I don't work for TMZ.

You know they hired David Girton last year to be one of the on-camera TMZ people, sitting in the newsroom, right?  I think they wanted him to replace the blonde-haired guy who had just left his job.  Whatever happened, it wasn't good, because David was back home in San Diego within a month, and went off the rails shortly afterwards...

Maybe TMZ should cover that story...

Zankie Says Goodnight #BB16

OK, last night some big events happened in the Big Brother house.  I want to get to everything so that we are all well-informed.


While searching the Flashbacks for what I was looking for, I ended up watching Zach and Frankie have a "bedtime chat", turn out the lights, and then fall asleep.   I am not a Zankie Fangirl, but I am a Zach fan and can appreciate what Frankie has done in this game.

I will present the facts and then add some commentary at the end.


Frankie and Zach both sat in the HoH bed and summarized how great their game is going.  They apparently had gone through each person and how they expect each week to go until the end of the game, when they are left in the Final Two seats.  A few highlights:

*  Frankie said it would either be the two of them with Christine in the Final Three, or the Final Three would be Zach, Cody and Derrick based on the various scenarios.

*  The discussed sending Cody home in the #4 spot.

*  Zach envisioned a scenario where he and Frankie would be with Derrick in the Final Three, and then he would have to stand up and tell Derrick that he and Frankie had a Final Two day since the third day in the house.

*  Zach and Frankie both congratulated Zach on how great he was today in the game (more on that later....I think it was pretty great).

*  Zach said he was tired and would fall asleep in about two minutes.  Frankie frantically searched for his "turban" (really a bandanna) so he could sleep with it over his eyes.  Zach helped him find it, and then got him a bottle of water from the fridge.  Frankie said "whatever would I do without you Zach?"

At this point, they turned out the lights.

Zach then said "who wants a backrub?"  Frankie rolled over to give Zach a backrub, but Zach said he didn't need one, and would give Frankie a backrub.  Zach said it actually helped him fall asleep to do it.

I closely watched this, and I would not really call it a backrub.  It was more of a light stroke across Frankie's back, kind of an absent-minded type of thing.

Then they ended up going off on another "we are so great at this game" tangent, which led to Frankie rolling over and giving Zach a kiss on the side of his head.

Here is the kiss.

Zach:  We really are great friends.

They went on an on about being great friends after the game, and how well they are matched to play Big Brother.  Zach is able to act out in ways that Frankie can't do, and Frankie tries to keep Zach in check.

They agree they are the perfect cover for each other in the game.

Zach:  Too bad I'm not gay, though.

Frankie: Oh, it would be perfect!  It would be the best sex you've ever had!

They both laugh.

Frankie:  Can you imagine if we were really hooking up in here?  What they would say downstairs?

They both laugh some more.

Frankie:  You just keep thinking about it...

No comment from Zach.

Frankie want's to meet Zach's "Little Broski" after the game. Zach says he can't wait for Frankie to meet him, and then the three of them can play golf together.  Frankie says Zach can meet his little sister, too.

They think "Team Zankie" is the best thing ever and that the fans are probably hash-tagging it like crazy.

The conversation trailed off, and they both went to sleep.  For real.  Someone started snoring lightly and at one point Frankie blurted out a semi-word in his sleep.

I point this out because on some Big Brother websites they think there is a huge conspiracy about Production not showing us what is going on in the HoH room at night this there is some big orgy going on up there.

OK.  Now my comments:

1.  Game wise, I'm kind of surprised that Frankie is about to take the step to backdoor Amber.  That has been the plan all along, but I can't believe Frankie didn't try harder to make sure Zach was the final HoH this week.  Frankie chose his nominations first, I think, but he chose the weaker team of Victoria and Jocosta.

2.  Because Frankie's game is going to be out in the open after putting Amber on the block Monday morning.  He pretends to be good friends with Amber, but yet he is going to backdoor her.  Yes, they have been working diligently to be sure Caleb is on board with the plan (more on that later) but if he tries to blame the move on Caleb, wouldn't that indicate that he is in an alliance with Caleb?  And wouldn't that be bad?

3.  The two of them are just a little too pleased with their games at this point.  When you get too comfortable, that is when your game is in jeopardy.  It won't happen soon, but it will happen.

4.  And is Zach gay?  With all of the "I love you" babble and "you're the greatest" declarations I would think Zach would be comfortable just coming out with it at this point.  He's got to know that his family (including his Little Broski) is watching all of this, so I don't understand him keeping up the charade of being straight if indeed he might be gay.

5.  In fact, if Zach was trying to pretend not to be gay, none of this Zankie business would be happening at all.  This sort of thing is the last thing that would be happening.

Right?  Or am I looking at this the wrong way?

Maybe I just love Zach (which I do) and think he could do much, much better if he actually was gay (he can).
