Frankie's Not the Only Attention Whore This Summer #BB16

I got excited when I saw this headline, but I warn you, the story isn't what you were expecting.

Basically, it sounds like this kid is a patent troll who is trying to earn a quick buck off CBS relating to the text message voting. 

Good luck with that, kid.

(Another patent troll went after Adam Carolla and is clearly barking up the wrong tree...)

Guess Who's Singing the National Anthem at the NFL Kickoff Extravaganza? #BB16

Frankie's meal ticket little sister.

According to this link, the kickoff extravaganza will be broadcast on NBC, not CBS. 

But still....

Frankie's HoH Twitter Questions Should Keep Him Busy! #BB16

Or it is probably more accurate to say that Production is busy trying to screen them....

Enjoy this sample of "fan" twitter questions.  I actually did laugh out loud at a few of them.  I'll let you guess which ones...

Frankie is So Proud of Himself Today #BB16

The PoV Ceremony is over, and Frankie is prancing around the bathroom hugging everyone and telling them he loves them.

Of course.

He wore his sparkly vest for the occasion.  He also did a rap when he nominated Zach, so you can look forward to seeing that on the Wednesday CBS show.

Frankie took Caleb off the block and replaced him with Zach.

Frankie, to Caleb:  You owe me one.

Zach is already in bed, doing laps with The Sandman.

Derrick is still doing the Fucking Patrol for Team America.  I'm not even going to comment on how stupid that whole thing is.  They all think they're fighting some sort of Saboteur who has been jacking their belongings.  (I thought one of the rules was that they can't blame Production, or a game twist.)

If Derrick loses BB 16, it will be partially due to the whole Team America situation.  He actually seems to think that America gives a damn and that we all want the three of them to stick together.

Christine wants to get on a regular schedule now inside the house, so the "feedsters don't hate her".

Derrick comments on Cody taking his shirt off all of the time, and then admits he's totally jealous.

Christine:  There's no room for jealousy in life.

Derrick:  Yes there is.

Christine:  You just have to focus on your own assets, and how beautiful they are.

Christine:  I think I'm going to set up a fan email account when I get home.

This brought up a discussion of fans wanting Christine to sign things...she says we can just email her to ask about it.  (I'm sure Derrick is referring to Dan's PO box that he set up to receive mail from fans.)  Yes, he mentioned setting up a PO Box, but Christine says she only wanted to email past house guests, not write them letters.

Derrick:  You'll probably get a 1,000 emails a day.

Christine:  That's so weird.   But it will be fun, too.

Derrick:  You'll probably get one from the same person every day...."die Christine, die!".

Christine:  I'll have Tim monitor them, and delete the mean ones.  And then I'll just read the nice ones.

Derrick, imitating Tim:  You got a 1,000 emails today...I had to delete 998, but you'll love the other two.

Victoria is feeling ill, and has been in and out of the DR since last night, trying to address it.  Christine gives a shout out to her mom, who always took care of her when she was sick, and sat up all night with her after she had a miscarriage.

Christine's Hubby Has One Less Problem #BB16 #DontBlameTim

Tim Brecht, Christine's hubby, is a musician and from the sound of things, a good one.  Over the weekend he put up a You Tube video of him covering Ariana Grande's big hit "Problem".

I'll just say it:  I like it better than Ariana's over-produced version.  But admittedly I'm clearly not in Ariana's target market.  Her version gets on my nerves, the ones I have left at this point in the Big Brother season.

The only thing that would make this better is if Iggy Azalea jumped out of the closet, rapping and stomping around.

Maybe Tim will cover "Fancy" next......

McCrae's Podcast Appearance -- "McCravin Slop"

McCrae Olson recently made an appearance on Chelsea Peretti's podcast.  I have to admit I had never heard of Chelsea Peretti before this, but I'm sure she's never heard of me, either.

Apparently she's a Big Deal, appearing on Brooklyn 9-9 and writing for a number of comedians.  And she's a Big Brother fan, albeit a very guilty, self-loathing Big Brother fan.  But aren't we all,  in one way or another?

This podcast isn't very long, and it is irritating to have Chelsea constantly say her fans are going to be mad that she talked about Big Brother for a whole episode, but I recommend listening to it for the following highlights:

*  Chelsea is legitimately obsessed with Big Brother, and everything that goes with it.

*  Chelsea films her show on the same lot as Big Brother (Radford Lot?) and admits to driving the long way out of the studio every day so she can try and get a glimpse of the action.

*  Chelsea admits to seeing sets being built and other construction outside the Big Brother walls days before we see it on the show, but knows she can only text her closest friends with this info due to the fact she'd like to keep her CBS job.

*  McCrae tells Chelsea he only went to a BB casting event at Mall of America so he could meet former players like Janelle, but I think he was clearly lying to try and sound cool to Chelsea.

*.  McCrae talks about how he was only an alternate house guest for BB15 until the last minute, when there was a knock on his hotel room door.

*  Towards the end, Chelsea hits McCrae with a HUGE topic...the love letter that McCrae wrote to Jessica that Amanda found on his computer, which ended his relationship with Amanda in spectacular fashion.

She did not, however, ask McCrae about his rain-soaked odyssey in search of LSD after the break up.  Well, there's always next time.
