The Big Brother 16 live feeds only started Thursday night, but there's already a ton of action going on. The nominations and the first Battle of the Block are over, and now the first Power of Veto competition has been played.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 16 spoilers from the live feeds.

HoH Frankie nominated Brittany and Victoria while HoH Caleb nominated Donny and Paola. Brittany and Victoria won the first Battle of the Block competition, meaning they are safe and Frankie is no longer HoH. Cody, Victoria and Zach were chosen to play in the PoV competition.

Donny won the Power of Veto!

Wow, that's a bit unexpected, especially since it was the typical "spelling" competition where the HGs ran through water and bubbles to collect letters and spell the longest word. Donny won with "splitters." It's good for him since Donny was the target. He's who Caleb, Devin, Frankie and Zach all wanted to get evicted, but now they need to enact Plan B.

From the talk, the back-up plan is to backdoor Joey. Unless something crazy happens, she'll probably be the replacement nominee and there's a good chance she'll be evicted, since Paola is seen as a weak wild card who will self destruct. Plus, Joey has apparently exposed El Quatro, her all-girl alliance with Paola, Nicole and Amber.

However, the girls are plotting to see if Caleb would put up a strong guy like Devin or Cody. That's highly unlikely. Brittany also claims Paola would probably go if she's up against Joey, but that doesn't seem so sure.


The game thus far seems to be run by the guys. Frankie and Zach already have a Final 2 deal and they are thick as thieves, plotting and scheming with each other and talking about how they're destined to win.

There's also yet another formal alliance in the house, a group of eight HGs called the Bomb Squad. Frankie, Devin and Caleb appear to be the main three and the architects of it, possibly having joined forces with the trio of Zach, Cody and Derrick (though they are really two separate trios that are only loosely associated, with Frankie and Zach working together on both sides). Amber and Christine were brought in later, but the guys don't completely trust them because Amber is too emotional and Christine is close with Nicole. Frankie's main role seems to be the diffuser, calming down the craziness of Devin and Cody.

It's likely that Donny will continue to be a prime target for the Bomb Squad, with Victoria as another target. This is definitely bad news for the ladies this year, and potentially HILARIOUS news for the Team America twist, since Joey is the first member and may be evicted before it even begins. It's hard not to be reminded of season 12, when Annie the Saboteur was the first HG evicted, thus ruining the twist. If this keeps up, it's going to be a bad summer for the women of Big Brother 16.
