Donny won a spelling competition in Big Brother 16 Episode 4 that saved him from the block, while everybody else was unable to find all the letters to create any words. Not at all suspicious. In his place, Joey was nominated alongside Paola.
Paola plans to stay under the radar for the week and just let Joey keep digging her own grave. She may not be campaigning for herself, but Devin sure is, continuing his overly aggressive style that is worse than Joey’s stupid attempt to create an all girl alliance. As for Joey, she dresses up as a man (her alter ego Alex) and pretends to be one of the guys.
Caleb has a crush on Amber. When he finally admits it, he creates an awkward atomsphere because she does not feel the same way and does not plan to.
By a vote of 13-0, Joey has been evicted from the Big Brother house. I would have preferred that at least one person vote the other way just for the sake of screwing with Devin. The most important part of this vote is that it decimates this season’s other stupid twist, Team America. Let’s keep going in that direction. Paola made a terrible first impression, but I have found her a lot more likeable over the past couple of episodes.
This week’s HOH will be split into two parts, one for the men and one for the women, effectively ensuring that the all male dominance is at an end or at least wobbling for the time being, unless either Amber or Christine win. Both sets of people will compete in the same competition, transferring kegs across balance beams while having frisbees chucked at them.
Amber is in the lead the whole time and just keeps getting further ahead, eventually becoming this week’s first HOH. More importantly, she just saved the Bomb Squad from having to lose power this week. In hindsight, Devin bringing two girls into the alliance seems very smart, even if it was stupid for him to do so without bothering to discuss it with anyone else. Since almost all the guys are in the Bomb Squad, it seems a safe bet that they will get the other spot. But it’s Hayden who is dominating the game. When he gets a few feet away from winning, he falls and is eliminated. Cody wins. Or does he? Nope, his foot hit the ground before he hit his button. That makes Devin the second HOH of the week. Cody’s probably better off that way anyway.
Unsurprisingly, Donny is the second member of Team America. As much as I like him, I also like that he’s got a big target on his back. America does not need influence over this game. If you want it that way, just go back to season 1.
Ugh. Joey has been eliminated. So now the rules are changed. They won’t just let her go. No, they will be letting an additional person into Team America to keep it at three. CBS, you suck. Let these stupid twists die a natural death rather than trying to prolong the misery.
