Take Time Out For Cute Puppy Pictures of Zach's Doggie #BB16

This is Zach's dog Tiger Woods.  If Zach goes home to Florida instead of the Jury House, you can console yourself with the thought of Tiger greeting Zach when he returns.

Zach's HoH letter reported that Tiger had ruined some loving room furniture...puppies can be hellions but nothing is as lovable as man's best friend.

 Oh, I got these pictures from Zach's Instagram account.  Please don't sue me, Zach.

Nicole Blogs, And Owns the Frootloop Dingus Label #BB16

Nicole's blog is one of the best I've seen.  It is sincere and heartfelt, and it paints a picture of her life that is exactly how I thought it would be.

Have you heard Nicole say something is "B.A." on the live feeds?  Well, she means Bad Ass, and I guess they don't even say the word "ass" in her family because she mentions "Bad Butt" in her blog.  Funny.

Here is her HoH blog in it's entirety..lifted straight from the CBS website.

Hey guys! Is this real life?!

First off let me take a second to think about how freakin' cool it is to be doing this right now! I literally can't believe I'm in the Big Brother house, my life is complete, but it would be more complete if I made it to the finale of course. As a big brother super fan;), this experience is absolutely amazing and better than anyone could imagine. I am so fortunate to be here and thankful for the awesome houseguests they have locked me up with. I have made such great friends:)…or so I think o_O p.s. the birds nest bed is the bomb dot com.

Mom, Dad, Jesse- I miss you guys like crazy and love you so much. I think about you every day and I can't wait to see you. Mom, I know you are my number one fan and I couldn't thank you enough for all the support you have given me throughout my life to help me be here. Dad, I hope you are understanding the show ;) and I want to thank you for teaching me to be so strong and determined... I really am a lot like you. Jesse, I bet you miss annoying me and there is no doubt that I miss it too. (Especially since Zach is taking your job way too seriously) I hope I'm not embarrassing you too bad, and please be careful. Give Paris, Beyonce and Rain a kiss for me. I love you all more than words could say. Shout-out to my hometown, Ubly Michigan..thumbs up!

I want to thank everyone for their support! Thank you to my fans! Wow, that is nuts to think that I might have fans! I hope I am making you proud. To all my friends and family--I miss and love you all. Mariah, Caleb has a crush on you if you didn't already know… thanks for the awesome letter! Grandparents I love and miss you. Chris, Carson and Izzy--Coconuts better be your favorite houseguest this year ;) To all of my nursing friends, I hope you rocked the NCLEX! Oh and mom, send pictures of me with family and friends in them, not just of me! Just incase I win HOH again, which I might!

I am here to play this game and make big moves, which makes this game a lot more fun. I am getting a lot of things checked off of my Big Brother to-do list including wearing a unitard, getting pickup lines as a frog, winning HOH, taking a bath in the HOH room, being a have-not, playing in the classic Veto Competition and actually wanting the veto. Oh and being called a Fruitloop Dingus was definitely on that list too…not. Mine and Zach's relationship isn't really that bad. He needs someone to pick on and I guess I am that person. We get along 95% of the time even though it may not seem like it. I didn't expect relationships to form so quickly in this house, it's amazing how close you get with people so fast. When you are around someone 24/7 it does make a huge difference. I feel like these people are my friends and family. Anyways, thanks for reading my Blog! I kinda stink at typing so this was pretty short. Thanks again!

xoxo, Nicole aka Fruitloop Dingus p.s. being the first girl this season to spend a week in the HOH room is pretty bad-butt, right?!

Mom stay strong! and listen to country strong if needed. I remember when we went out shortly before I left and danced to that song.

Radio Interview With Derrick's Dad #BB16

Last week, before Amber was eliminated, his father Tim Levasseur did a phone-in interview with a local radio station that is pretty interesting.  You can listen to it at this link.

A few highlights:

*  The ditzy female host of the radio show HATES Zach, so don't expect to love her.  Or even like her, based on her overly enthusiastic verbal stylings.

*  Tim is watching the live feeds...he mentions seeing Derrick confront Caleb about a lie he told Derrick.

*  Tim contacted Production when  Derrick was a Have Not about his sudden weight loss and trouble sleeping, and they assured him that Slop was filled with nutrition and that Derrick would be fine.

*  Derrick's dad sounds really cool and understandably proud of his boy.

Derrick really has the support of his community...a local bakery is making cupcakes decorated with pictures of  Derrick and The Hitmen alliance logo is is pimping them on Twitter....they do look tasty.

What Will the Next Batch of Have Nots Eat? #BB16

As usual, the Big Brother live feeders have been voting for the last few days to determine what extra foods the Have Nots will enjoy next week.  

Caleb is still on slop for another week, of course, after taking a two-week slop penalty in last weeks Battle of the Block competition.

So as you can see, the winning snacks are "Peanut Butter and Jelly Fish".

This choice could mean a few things...we know that they will be given three additional choices to eat for the week.  The simple solution would be:

1.  Peanut Butter
2.  Jelly
3.  Fish

But this sounds too easy, doesn't it?  Maybe the additional choices will be:

1.  Peanuts
2.  Butter
3.  Jelly Fish

But are Jelly Fish edible?  I did a little research about it, and I did learn that a group of Jelly Fish are known as a "bloom" or "swarm". And then I found the following information on Wikipedia regarding the edible nature of Jelly Fish:

In some countries, such as Japan and Korea, jellyfish are known as a delicacy. "Dried jellyfish" has become increasingly popular throughout the world. The jellyfish is dried to prevent spoiling; if not dried they can spoil within a matter of hours. Once dried, they can be stored for weeks at a time. Only scyphozoan jellyfish belonging to the order Rhizostomeae are harvested for food; about 12 of the approximately 85 species. Most of the harvest takes place in southeast Asia.

Based on this info, I am officially guessing they will be given Peanuts, Butter, and dried Jelly Fish.

FYI #1  If their blender is hearty enough, they can easily make "natural" peanut butter out of peanuts.  I do it all the time with my food processor.   And butter is not one of the condiments they are currently allowed to enjoy as Have Nots (I am 95% sure that last statement is true.)  so I'm sure they can find a way to utilize it in an appetizing manner. 

FYI #2  The Have Not-concept is a new one in the last few years of Big Brother.  Since BB3, they have had week-long food restrictions, but it is only in the last few years that their sleeping habits were impacted by introducing an actual room for them to stay in.  From BB3 up until whenever Slop was introduced to Big Brother (BB8 or BB9?) the house guests were "tortured"  by having to eat only Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches as a penalty or punishment.

They got bread, a few varieties of jelly, and usually regular and reduced-fat peanut butter.  Personally, I would love that.  Peanut butter (and almond butter...and sunflower seed butter..) is my kryptonite.  I would love an excuse to eat only peanut butter for every meal...
