Big Brother 16, Episode #13
You would think that with Devin out of the House that the mood would be calmer, but it has only gotten crazier! This is all thanks to the House’s resident cowboy, Caleb. His affections toward Amber have him going a little bonkers, causing others to be on edge. And with no other huge targets in the House anymore, Caleb and his antics are sticking out like a sore thumb, which is helping the game of the Floaters. Will Caleb’s actions cause the House to get him out early? Read below to see what happened.
An Overlooked Threat in the House
Amber is on the war path as of late. She was upset because she thought she had been put on the Block as a pawn too many times, and she has become sick and tired of being used this way. Amber confessed that she was gunning for the boys, and they had better look out for her.
With this most recent BOTB victory (as Jacosta was of no help to her in this one), Amber has been a formidable competitor this season. This should be something that the boys should be looking out for, but they can’t seem to look past her, uh, exterior.
Brittany Feeling Bummed Out
Brittany was dishing with Zach how disappointed she was about being stuck on the Block for another week. She felt shunned by the House and by Cody for putting her on the Block. Zach asked her how bad did she want to stay in the House, and she said she would fight to stay. Zach confessing the Diary Room that she would have to win the PoV to make her wish come true.
Cody Heating Things Up, Literally and Figuratively
Cody began warming up Amber’s cold hands under the eagle eyes of Cowboy Caleb and other on-lookers in the HoH Room. Caleb did not like how Home Skillet (Cody) was moving in on Ole Girl (Amber) right in front of him. Caleb left the room, and he was talking to Zach about how upset Caleb was at what Cody was doing, and about lying about not wanting to be with Amber. He was also angry about Amber not “showing her appreciation” to Caleb for “saving her” from the Block last week. Caleb keeps forgetting he put her there, without asking her, then made himself her knight in shining armor! Zach just shook his head and told Caleb what he wanted to hear, then skulked off to inform Cody of what he heard.
Finding Company in Misery
Brittany and Caleb were commiserating over their plights in the House. Caleb heard what Brittany had to say about how she didn’t deserve to be on the Block, and he found himself agreeing with what she was saying. Caleb told her about the Amber and Cody situation, and she said that the only reason why she was still on the Block was because she didn’t want to be lying on Cody’s lap to make him happy. Brittany confessed in the Diary Room that having Caleb on her side may be a good thing because everyone in the House was intimidated by him.
Veto Comp Players Picks Meeting
Here are the players for this week’s PoV Comp:
Cody (HoH), Brittany (Nominee), Victoria (Nominee), Zach (Cody’s pick), HouseGuest’s Choice (Caleb – Brittany’s pick), and Nicole (Victoria’s pick).
Cody Smells Something Fishy
Cody was shocked that Brittany chose Caleb as her HouseGuest’s Choice for the PoV. He took Caleb aside to figure out what was going on. Caleb told him that he was talking with Brittany, and that he believed that Cody was making a mistake with his target this week. After hearing this, Cody could no longer trust where Caleb’s head was anymore.
PoV Comp – BB CUP
In honour of the FIFA World Cup, BB 16 decided to have one of their own, BB style. This PoV was another Comp where it was played in a series of rounds. Each riund, the players had to use a “kicker” to aim a soccer ball into a goal that was divided up into different numbered areas. The player with the lowest score would be eliminated,and would have to take a “prize” from the trophy table . Players that were eliminated in later rounds were able to swap their prize for one that a previous loser chose. The winner would be the person that ended up with the golden power of Veto.
This is how this Comp panned out:
1st Eliminated – Cody. Prize – Veto.
2nd Eliminated – Brittany. Prize – Penalty Kicks (must receive 10 self-inflicted kicks in the butt whenever the signal goes off for 24 hrs). She traded with Cody for the Veto.
3rd Eliminated – Zach. Prize – Trip to Germany. He kept this prize.
4th Eliminated – Nicole. Prize – Goal Oriented (must score 2400 soccer goals in 24 hrs. If not complete the punishment, then cannot take part in the next Veto Comp). Nicole traded this prize with Brittany for the Veto.
5th Eliminated – Victoria. Prize $5 000. She traded prize with Nicole for the Veto.
Last Player Standing – Caleb. Prize – Germatard (a German-themed unitard that must be worn for a week). He traded it with Nicole for the $5 000.
Victoria won the PoV
Punishments Dealt Out
Nicole came out of the Diary Room in her second fun outfit in two weeks. This time, she was in her cute Germatard! She did look cute in it, and, once again, the house made her feel good about her punishment. The House was also supportive of Brittany and Cody of their punishments. Whenever they could, the HouseGuests would go out to the BB Backyard and cheer Brittany on as she scored goal after goal. Her feet became sore and hurt, but she was a trooper, not giving up until the task was complete. Everyone also watched Cody as he used this “kicker” to give himself 10 kicks in the butt for a day. There were times that the buzzer didn’t go off and he gave himself the punishment because he thought he heard the buzzer go off! The house had to tell him a few times that he was hearing things.
Donny Talking Strategy
Not wanting to act as a pawn in this game, Donny finally started talking strategy with Zach and Hayden. He was thinking that Cody could back-door Caleb this week. His reasoning: because Caleb would become more cocky the longer he stayed in the House. Everyone understood what Donny was talking about.
Playing With Your Pride or Playing With Your Head
Cody was furious with Caleb for taking the $5 000. He was ranting and raving about how he was going to put Caleb on the Block as Victoria’s replacement. Frankie and Zach were frantically trying to get Cody to change his mind about putting Caleb up on the Block. Frankie told Cody not to loose an ally (Caleb) over something like this in the game. Later on, Derrick tried reasoning with Cody, telling him that they could get Caleb soon, but Brittany needed to go now because she was gunning for them, while Caleb on had his sights set on getting Amber to want to be with him. Cody disagreed with them, saying that Caleb couldn’t stay because he treated Cody like a punk for taking the money over the Veto. Derrick said that is not looking long-term in the game (which is true), but Cody also has a point. He shouldn’t let people step all over him in the game, either.
Donny went to speak with Cody about what was happening. Donny said he didn’t want to be used as a pawn to get rid of Brittany, and that Cody should be playing his game, not the game that others want him to play. Donny Cody also said that he would not hold it against Cody if up as a replacement Nominee because he knew there were other people behind this decision. Cody liked what Donny had to say, and told him, shaking his hand, that he wouldn’t be put up on the Block.
Victoria swiftly used the PoV to take herself off the Block. With a heavy heart, Cody had to break his gentleman’s agreement and put Donny on the Block. Donny vowed to get to the bottom of who was responsible for putting his safety in the game in harm’s way. Brittany said she had into game mode in order to stay in the House.
Wow, Readers! My second pick is in real danger of leaving the House this week. It doesn’t look good for Brittany since more people in the house would rather see Donny stay over her. It also does not look good for the solidarity of Team America. When Donny finds out that it was his fellow members that fought Cody to put him on the Block as a pawn, I am not sure what he will think about wanting to be a part of a team that wanted him on the Block, no matter how “safe” we was. Will Brittany go home this week? Will Donny find out it was the remainder of Team America that put him on the Block? Who will be next week’s HoHs? Come on back to see the results of this week’s Eviction and more on my blog.
Until my next post, Readers!
