Now that we’re past the extended first week and the Fourth of July falling in week 2, Big Brother 16 is back to a regular schedule. That means the Power of Veto competition takes place Saturday afternoon, and with the plan to backdoor Devin, there’s only one thing that can mess it up. Well, maybe a few things.
SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 16 spoilers.
HoH Derrick nominated Jocasta and Caleb. HoH Nicole nominated Amber and Donny. Amber and Donny won the Battle of the Block (and as a result, dethroned HoH Nicole is in a frog costume for the rest of the week). Devin, Donny and Christine were picked to play in the PoV competition.
Donny won the Power of Veto!
Wow, Donny has now won two PoV competitions, I don’t think anyone saw that coming. And now the Double Ds have won the first three PoVs. Donny is undefeated in PoV comps. He’s now in rarefied air, winning two of the first three PoVs. Others to do this are season 6’s James Rhine, season 8’s Daniele Donato, Matt and Natalie in season 9, Brendon Villegas in both seasons 12 and 13 and Shane Meaney in season 14 (who won the first three in a row).
The competition was a face-off where one HG challenged another. Christine challenged Devin and lost, Derrick challenged Devin and lost, Donny challenged Devin and won and the final battle was Caleb vs. Donny, with Donny winning, Jocasta is so sick that, despite being one of the nominees, she did not participate in the competition.
This puts Donny in the middle, but it sounds like he’s going to use it to save Jocasta and Devin will go up as the replacement nominee. That’s when things will get interesting.
With Devin vs. Caleb, a lot of people are going to start to think about getting rid of Caleb instead of Devin. Nicole and Hayden are already scheming to do it and will try to rally Victoria, Brittany, Jocasta and Donny, aka the Outsiders (or non-Bomb Squad members).
However, will they be able to convince the rest of the house that this is a good move? Derrick seems eager to keep Caleb while Cody is on the fence, so this could divide the house. Just when I thought everything would be simple, it’s not.
There’s bound to be plenty of plotting and scheming on the live feeds over the next several days as some people try to get Caleb evicted instead of Devin. It would be hilarious if, two weeks in a row, someone who voluntarily tried to throw the Battle of the Block competition winds up going home. However, HGs have mentioned that Caleb didn’t actually throw it because he couldn’t, but rather Jocasta blew the competition because she was so sick. Since Friday afternoon, she’s been throwing up and laying in bed.
Do you think Hayden and Nicole will succeed in turning the house around to evict Caleb? Or will Devin remain the target and go home on Thursday?
In addition, after the PoV competition, the Have-Nots were chosen. Devin, Amber, Caleb and Hayden all volunteered. Christine originally offered, but since she is allergic to flour and can’t eat gluten, Hayden took her place. In addition to slop, they can eat Tortillas, Tripe and Tomatillos. This is Hayden’s second week, but the first week for the others. After just three weeks, there are only five HGs left who haven’t been Have-Nots: Donny, Frankie, Christine, Nicole and Jocasta.
