And It's Down to Two... Still Hanging in the HoH Part #1 Competition #BB16

While Victoria is wrapped in a towel, Derrick and Cody talk.  Derrick thinks the next competition could be anything...a crapshoot.  Cody kind of wants this one because it's an endurance.  Derrick wants to drop, but he doesn't feel confident.

Cody is surprised at this.  He is confident, and wants Derrick to feel that way, too.

(About each other, or his ability to win the Part #2 comp?)

Cody: Now This is Torrential! - The HoH Part #1 Comp Continues #BB16

The rain starts really pouring down on them now.  Cody and Derrick laugh and talk about how this is Big Brother.

They are hanging at an angle where they really need at least one hand on that bar most of the time.  I think the "sky" tilts back and forth to make things challenging.  Cody said the bar is going to get slippery and harder to grip.

Lights flash and Cody yells about the lightening.  It's funny.  Victoria is silent, not talking at all.  I can hear her breathe sometimes when the guys are quiet.

These are Derrick's legs.  You can see there is room to stand on, but not much.  Derrick asked Cody a few minutes ago if "he said whether the foot thing would move" and Cody didn't have information about that.

I'll bet those wet extensions are heavy, especially if your scalp is sore.

The rain stops for a minute and there is quiet, as they all catch their breath.  Police sirens are heard in the background, racing closer to the house.

The rain starts again, hard, and I can hear Victoria singing in her native language.  The melody sounded to me like a song from The Sound of Music---the Lonely Goatherd Song, but I have no idea what it was.  Production let it go on for awhile and then cut the feeds.

When we come back it is raining really hard now, and the wall tilts forward and they all breath hard, holding on.

This picture is scary to me.  It is Derrick's right hand.  He is obviously having problems with it.  He keeps hanging it down and shaking it.

When the rain stops and they can stand up easier. they all try to dry off their grip, and stretch a little.

Victoria:  How long do you think we've been up here?  Ten minutes?

Cody makes her repeat it and asked Derrick if he knew how long they'd been up there.

Derrick:  Heath?  Are we allowed to get a time check?


Cody admits to Derrick that he's hurting, but his voice sounds the most energetic to me.  Derrick thinks Frankie would have crushed this comp, but Victoria points out that his hands would have turned purple by now.

The "sky" tilted forward again and you could see Derrick's posture and grip change.

Yeah, Derrick's arms are in trouble.  He put his right arm inside his shirt for a few minutes.  He still wears the Band Aid on his left middle finger from when he sliced his finger opening a champagne bottle at the engagement party.

Derrick and Cody just whispered something about "her" to each other but I'm not sure what it was.  I think Cody might have asked Derrick if he thought he could outlast Victoria on this thing, and Derrick may have shrugged.

Earlier when they were waiting for the competition to start, Victoria mentioned the HoH Part #1 comp in BB14 where Dan got Danielle to drop from the fishing bobber.  So she knows about that...interesting.

Victoria tells them her hands hurt, and they both immediately encourage her, tell her to hang on and that seems to help.

Victoria's hands are asleep and Derrick says he can't even feel his.  Cody snorts at this and Derrick says, "hey I'm old!  give me a break!"

 The wall tilts as the rain beats down and Victoria is in trouble.  She's slipping and she knows it.

She lost and she's upset.  The guys congratulate her and say good job.

Victoria:  Good job my ass!

And We're Back----Everyone is Hanging for HoH Part #1 #BB16

They are paragliding, standing on small platform in the sky.  Derrick asks Victoria if she's hanging in there and she chuckles.

The set is gorgeous, and when the camera sweeps over the scene it feels like I am watching from a plane.  The backyard is quiet, with only Cody and Derrick chatting easily and the faint sounds of planes in the air.

Just look at that aerial view.  A "cloud" or something comes up and I think they got rained on a little but it was hard to tell.  Cody was afraid that the step they are standing on would pull back in the wall.  He brings up Caleb, and Derrick thinks Caleb would have smoked this competition.

Cody: He's gonna hate me.

I guess that is the cloud in the picture below.  Can the pooping birds be far behind?

Julie Chats With Entertainment Weekly about Frankie and His Glitter...And Her Family Secret #BB16

Julie answered three questions for Entertainment Weekly.  You can read the article on their website here.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: You called Frankie’s reaction after being voted out, “the happiest eviction I’ve ever seen.” Did all that enthusiasm and flying glitter take you back a bit?

Not at all. I expected no less from a showman like Frankie. He was consistent this summer — always interesting to watch. This guy was born to be in front of an audience.
How do you think Frankie would have done with the jury had he made it to the finals?
Good question. If against Victoria, landslide. If against Derrick, probably would only get Zach’s vote and anyone who had sore feelings against Derrick and being “played” by him…but probably not enough votes to win.  Against Caleb, he would have a good chance of winning but it would probably be a tight vote. Against Cody, he’d probably win as long as people voted with their head and not their heart.
You and I have talked about what a great game Derrick has played so far, but who’s his biggest competition left for the $500,000 at this point?
Hmmmm…Victoria. Just kidding! See? Chenbot has a sense of humor. Um, probably Caleb?  It’s hard to say. Cody is sweet but didn’t win as much as Caleb.
I have to shift gears before we finish because you revealed on The Talk yesterday as part of Secrets week that your grandfather was a polygamist. How nervous were you about sharing that information publicly for the first time?
I was very nervous. My voice was a bit shaky the entire time cause my heart was pounding so hard and I was sweating! They say never let ‘em see you sweat but yesterday I think I may have. Glad it’s over and happy about all the nice comments I got from viewers, friends, co-workers and even my husband!
