It was a busy day on Saturday in the Big Brother 16
house. Besides a brief medical emergency for one HG
there was also the usual Power of Veto competition. Without the Battle
of the Block competition, this is the only opportunity for the nominees
to save themselves.SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 16 spoilers.

Yawn. It's inevitable that the PoV won't be used for only the second time this season. It was the Stay/Fold competition, and afterwards the Bomb Squad gathered in the bedroom to celebrate and confirm that Cody won't be using it. Like last week with Frankie, now Cody has all of the power. He also won a prize to watch the premiere of the new CBS drama Scorpion
and chose to watch it with Donny and Nicole. So at least he's giving them something after putting them both on the block and making them Have-Nots.
Donny and Nicole will stay on the block and Donny will probably be evicted on Thursday. Donny is the biggest target, especially for Derrick, because he's the only person in the house smart enough to see Derrick for the huge threat he is.
The only real hope is that Donny has mentioned that this week's Team America mission is to come up with their own mission and he has suggested keeping Team America safe this week. It's unclear if this is for real or just a lie he made up to convince them to save him. Frankie seems more willing to do it, but Derrick doesn't want to.
But now there are five whole days of live feeds with nothing to do. The powerhouse alliance has already made up its mind (yes, they only have one mind and it's Derrick's). Instead of watching the live feeds, why not devote your lives to something more productive, like the "Every Simpsons
Ever" marathon on FXX. That's 24/7 entertainment that won't leave you depressed.FUN FACTS
