In the first three weeks of Big Brother 16
two-thirds of the original nominees have been women. In addition, seven
of the first nine HoH and PoV competitions were won by men (and one of
the others was only between the women). It's hard not to see an obvious
gender disparity this year. Will the fourth week bring some equality, or
will men continue to win and women continue to get nominated?SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 16 spoilers.
Cody and Frankie won the HoH competition
.HoH Cody nominated Brittany and Victoria.
HoH Frankie nominated Amber and Jocasta.
Obviously the trends of men winning competitions and women getting nominated is even more pronounced than ever as this is the first week that all four original nominees are female. Now 75 percent of original nominees are women and 82 percent of all HoH and PoV competitions have been won by men.See Who Won the Battle of the Block>>
The primary targets are Brittany or Jocasta, so it almost doesn't matter which pair wins the Battle of the Block. However, there's also talk of possibly backdooring Donny, and even his Team America alliance of Frankie and Derrick seem OK with that as a Plan B in case their target wins the PoV.
Whatever happens, this is another week where the Detonators are dominating. That's the five-person alliance of Frankie, Derrick, Cody, Zach and Christine. They are also very close to Hayden and Nicole and still have the remnants of the Bomb Squad with Caleb and Amber.
As for the Team America mission, Derrick, Frankie and Donny agreed that Amber is a "physical threat" because she's the "strongest female." As ridiculous as that sounds, it means they've successfully won their second Team America mission and now each have $10,000. The sad part is that Frankie decided to nominate Amber before he even got the Team America mission, so this wasn't a challenge and it didn't affect anything. The same people would've been nominated if there was no such thing as Team America, or even if viewers chose the other option (with Victoria being named the floater). At this point, Team America is just free money for those three guys.FUN FACTS
-Brittany is the first HG this season to be nominated three times.
-This is the second time Brittany and Victoria have been nominated as a pair. Frankie nominated them back in week 1.
-All four nominees have been nominated before, and all of them have competed in the Battle of the Block. Amber and Victoria are undefeated in the BotB, while Jocasta has never won it.
-Frankie, Cody, Derrick and Christine are still the only HGs yet to be nominated. Those four and Zach are the only ones who haven't played in a Battle of the Block competition.(Image courtesy of CBS)
