When it comes to the Battle of the Block competition on Big Brother 16
it's usually pretty easy to predict the winner. In the first five
weeks, Paola, Victoria or Jocasta have been on the losing side every
time. But what happens when the two sides are evenly matched with skill
and lack thereof?SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 16 spoilers.
Donny and Nicole won the HoH competition
. Donny nominated Caleb and Victoria, Nicole nominated Jocasta and Zach
.Caleb and Victoria won the Battle of the Block!
This means Donny is dethroned, Nicole is the first female permanent HoH of the season and Zach and Jocasta are on the block.
The competition was very quick, included dominos and the winners had to take various punishments. It sounds like Caleb and Victoria are on Slop for two weeks, Caleb has to shave his head (which he's not happy about) and they will have to be chained together for 48 hours dressed like Adam and Eve. Here's Victoria as Eve and a newly-shaved Caleb as Adam:
:The Beastmode Cowboy finally won something else after going on an 8-competition losing streak following his first HoH, so maybe getting rid of Amber was good for his game. More importantly, this marks the fourth time that Victoria has come off the block, so she's like a cat with nine lives in this house. Victoria also has three wins, so she's tied with Frankie and one behind Donny and Nicole. She's won as many competitions as Derrick, Cody and Zach...combined!
With Nicole in power, things could get interesting. She and Hayden really want to backdoor Frankie this week, so if the PoV gets used, that's a very real possibility. Cody is also on board with the plan, with Donny and Derrick saying they'd do it, but who knows if Team America would stop that.
If Jocasta comes off the block, then it could be Zankie in the two nomination chairs on Thursday night. If Zach comes off the block, a Jocasta vs. Frankie vote would certainly draw battle lines. If the nominations stay the same, there's a chance Jocasta could just get evicted and this entire week will be for nothing.
The worst case scenario for Haycole would be if Frankie wins PoV and saves Zach. Nicole would have to choose a replacement nominee from: Hayden, Derrick, Cody, Donny and Christine. She promised not to backdoor her fellow HoH, she's in a showmance with Hayden, she just made a Final 4 deal with Hayden, Derrick and Cody and she has another alliance with Hayden and Christine. That would be awkward.(Image courtesy of CBS)
