Tim Stinks Clears the Air. #BB16

I really like Christine's hubby Tim.  He is intelligent, articulate, and talented.

I'm a little uncomfortable with the earlobes, though.  I'm from a different generation where you try to keep your freak flag hidden, so it doesn't fly during important job interviews.  Plus, it looks like it hurts.

Anyhoo, here is Tim responding to the many questions he's received about "Chrody".  Tim gets a lot of hate directed at him ---none of this is any of his fault.  He can't do anything about what Christine is or isn't doing this summer.  He can just sit and watch and wait it out like the rest of us.

I'll just shut up and let Tim talk.

If you haven't heard Tim sing yet, you can enjoy that here.

Frankie: This Isn't America's Favorite Fuck Up #BB16

Some trusty Super Fan has put together a compilation of some of Frankie's obnoxious moments in the Big Brother house.  I saw some famous moments here that I am quite familiar with, along with a few other moments that were new to me.

Enjoy hating these moments.  Fall in dislike all over again...

Blind Item - Is This About Frankie? #BB16

The popular guess for the second guy is Frankie, of course.  But who is the first guy?

You can read the original item, and get in on the guesswork here.

From getting to know Frankie Grande for two months now, I would think he would be proud to have famous hookups....he's certainly not shy about his sex life, either.  So from that perspective, maybe this isn't so juicy... 

Donny: Scorpions Was About Geniuses! #BB16

About 9:10 pm BBT, the HoH room burst open and Cody, Nicole and Donny came downstairs with armloads of candy and other snacks.  There were loud clacking noises as each of them dumped loads of candy in the middle of the coffee table.

If you don't know, Cody won the PoV and the right to invite two house guests to join him to watch the premiere episode of Scorpions in the HoH room.  He invited Donny and Nicole, who he also "invited" to be Have Nots on Friday.  Oh, and he also "invited" them to sit on the block for eviction, too.

That drink in the picture below is some sort of "Apple Pie" flavored soda that Donny got especially for Caleb.

Nicole:  It was too short, because there were no commercials.

Derrick:  It really would have been neat if you could meet the stars of the show.  (David Hasselhoff watched the premiere of some show he was on with Jeff and Jordan in the HoH room during BB13.

Nicole:  The lead guy was hot..

They report that the show was about four geniuses who are working together on some project.  Nicole says one of them is a body language expert who can look at someone and tell if they have something important to say.

The lead character's IQ is 197, they say.  Donny reports that they also had pizza, but weren't allowed to bring that downstairs.  Donny says his belly is stuffed after this experience.

Donny:  Katherine McPhee from American Idol was on it.

Frankie:  She's a genius?

Donny:  No, she was a waitress.  But she's a mama to a little boy who's a genius.  It was couldn't have got up and went to the bathroom, because you woulda missed somethin'.

Christine dug into a box of Butterfingers.  (Yum.)

Donny:  I ate two pieces of pizza and a whole box of Butterfingers.  I think I'm gonna be sick.

Cody says the soda flavors were all weird...there was a bacon-flavored soda, and also a peanut butter and jelly flavor.

Cody says the show was sick, and will be a big hit with 20 year olds.  It sounds like they do computer-based jobs, like hacking into an airplane.  The show premieres September 22nd on CBS.

Donny says the pizza was loaded with toppings, so he could only eat two pieces.

Frankie:  Was it different pizza?

Cody:  I don't like the pizza that they give I didn' was the same kind.

Oh, to Be a Fly on the Wall During the HoH Lockdowns This Year #BB16

Last night when BBAD started, I was watching and when I heard the conversation, I was like "what?"

So today I am flashing back to just a few minutes earlier, to see if I can figure it out.  At the time, Cody is upstairs in the HoH Room with Nicole and Donny, watching the premiere of the CBS show Scorpion.  Victoria, Caleb, Derick and Christine are lounging in the living room, talking about personal topics.

Victoria apparently had a boyfriend who treated her very badly.  She has said before that she is a virgin and plans to wait until she is married to have sex.  The guy she dated apparently tried to grab her butt a few times when they were kissing and she had to put his hands on her hips, telling him they had to stay right there, not move up or down.

He said he respected her, but she says he was a horrible person and she had to "kick him in his ass".  Derrick thinks the guy was making an investment, by following the rules so that she would open up to him later.

Victoria:  He was using me.  I was doing everything for him...bringing him food...he got what he wanted out of me.

Caleb: No he didn't!  He wanted a big handful of donk!

Christine giggles.  Derrick keeps wanting her to get to the good part, when the guy cheated on her.

Derrick:  And you found out he cheated..

Victoria:  No.  I didn't know that until after...but he was at my house every day, and  it got to the point where I was just too embarrassed to let him come in to my house.  He treated me horribly.

Caleb:  So every makeout sesh ended with him trying to touch your butt.

Victoria:  No, it was more of a joke.

Caleb went on with that line of conversation for awhile.  (They got beer and wine earlier, which explains some of Caleb's behavior. Even Christine had a glass of wine, and she rarely drinks.)

Caleb stood up and showed everybody how he likes to "pick his girl up and put his hands in the fold". (i.e. below a woman's butt cheeks).  This evolves into Caleb showing them how he "slams" the woman around on the coffee table, using various wrestling moves.

Derrick:  What the hell?

(Relax, Caleb is clearly joking and putting on a little show.)

Derrick:  So, you make love to her and then you beat her to death?

Caleb:  It got a little out of got DIRRRTTTY.

Christine:  I don't know if that's's got real dirty.

Derrick:  I killed her.

Caleb, still joking:  I told the judge, she asked me to do it harder!

Victoria promises to tell them what really happened with her boyfriend on Thursday.  She is referring to the HoH lockdowns every Thursday morning, where the entire cast is trapped in the HoH room so the production crew can get the living room set up for the live show.  They do a technical rehearsal with lights and camera angles, and they also give direction to the cast.

In past seasons, the live feed cameras focused on the HoH room during this time, so we could watch them.  Often, the BB theme music blared throughout the house, so the house guests couldn't hear the production crew talking inside the house.


I used to love watching the HoH lockdowns because there was often so much tension in the room.  But my favorite HoH lockdown was from BB12.  Brendon, Matt Hoffman, and Ragan Fox were chatting about various jobs they've had, when Brendon dropped a bomb about working for the Scientology center.  And then Ragan dropped a nuclear bomb when he said he knew L. Ron Hubbard's son.

You can read my update here.  I remember being scandalized by the fact that Production didn't cut the live feeds during this conversation, and thinking that they must have been really busy with the action downstairs.  And when I went to Joker's Updates to see their coverage of this conversation, it just said something crappy like "HG discuss non-game topics in the HoH room".

Now I don't know about you, but I think people LOVE to hear about non-game conversations.  In fact, they CLAMOR to hear juicy tidbits of the house guests' mundane conversations.  It's really why I even bother writing this blog, and why I used to write updates for Jokers.

Anyway, on vacation earlier this year I read "Going Clear", a non-fiction expose about Scientology.  It's a good read, if you're interested.  Your local library probably has a copy.


So Victoria plans to tell the real story during this week's HoH lockdown.  And earlier this year, Frankie promised to share the stories of his wild days of drunken screwing when he was on Broadway during one of the lockdowns.

(And really, would wouldn't want to hear that?  Other than Frankie's mom, of course.)

Christine says she has some stories to tell during this week's lockdown, too.

Caleb:  I'm excited to hear what you have to say.

Christine:  I don't want Donny to be there though...he's so irritating.

Derrick:  I already nailed it.

Christine:  Yeah, you kinda did.

Derrick:  I could see that all day...

Caleb:  Oh, I already heard about you going to sex toy parties...

Christine:  Well yes, I've been to Passion Parties, but...

Derrick:  I know exactly what it is...remember about a month ago outside when I was really discreet..I don't think the cameras were focused on us....

Caleb:  It's the nerd with glasses who are always the freaks...

Christine:  It's so true.

Caleb:  I guarantee it. It's very true...

Derrick:  My wife wears glasses...well, contacts.  (makes click click sound with his voice)

So what could it be?  Three ways? Swinging? Leather?

I think BBAD should have a very special highlight show with "after hours" topics like this.

Zach Really Did Pack on the Ell Bees This Summer #BB16

According to the CBS website, there was a lot more of Zach to love when he checked out of the Big Brother 16 house last Thursday.  9.7% more, to be exact.  Zach gained 15 pounds this summer.

Must have been those "Candyland Pancakes".  At some point, Zach started adding mini chocolate bars to the recipe, along with a handful of M & M's.  And of course, the nightly chocolate chip cookie baking that has occurred in the last few weeks is going to get everybody....even Donny.

Even Hayden gained two pounds, and he worked out every day.

Jocosta lost weight, though.  A whopping seven pounds, lending credibility to her claims of constant illness.
