I’m not going to rush right into this because Thursday’s are always a very slow day in the house (correction, almost always). The live show is tonight, and unless the house is mixed on the vote, they spend the day primping and prepping. That made me think of something I’ve always wondered… has the live show plea to the house ever worked to switch a vote? In the years blogging this show, I’ve never been surprised on who went home because the decision was pretty much made sometimes days before the live show. Despite quite a few solid arguments in keeping a person over the years, I don’t remember a time when that actually swayed the decision. Oh well, it’s still good for TV. We get some of the best moments from those pleas (and some of the most awkward).
Another week has gone by, and I want to welcome any new readers to the blog. I try my best to keep you as updated as possible, with as much info as I can squeeze in without flooding you with useless stuff. Needless to say, filtering the interesting from the uninteresting is one of the hardest things to do while writing about the show, because there are a lot of moments where it’s uninteresting conversation.
It was a pretty wild week, and as long as Devin remains in the house, it will continue to stay that way. A lot of people talk about him, and it’s hard not to. He has his hand in everything and is a huge target by the house now. At this point, I feel sorry for the guy. Watching him sit in the HoH room staring at the monitor, seeing everyone talking and socializing while he was in the HoH room alone… it made me sad. Maybe I am just a pushover, but it would suck to have the entire house against you. He had Nicole up in the room talking for a few minutes, and she spent the entire time with a bored look before standing up and inching toward the door.
Anyway, the house is pretty set on who it is voting tonight, and that could mean big things down the road. Team America will be doing their thing, Caleb is still obsessed with Amber, and the house is just waiting to drop the bombshell on him about how bad she speaks of him when he’s not around. The ‘Bomb Squad’ is just about dead, and even Nicole+Donny are scrambling to steal some of the good players from that alliance (Hayden, Cody for example).
Big Brother 16 is just getting started!
Here are the votes for tonight:
- Amber – Paola
- Brittany – Paola
- Caleb – Paola
- Christine – Paola
- Cody – Paola
- Hayden – Paola
- Jocasta – Paola (maybe)
- Nicole – Paola
- Victoria – Paola
- Derrick – Paola
- Frankie – Paola (maybe)
- Donny – Paola (maybe)
I am pretty confident on all but 3 of those votes. It was set to be a closer vote than that, but with Caleb flipping over to Team Zach, I have a feeling the rest of the house is just going to vote Paola out and not create any waves. Frankie was supposed to vote Zach to mix up the votes, but I doubt that will even happen. My guess is 12-0, but it’s possible you’ll see 9-3 or even 7-4. Either way, Paola is going home.
If anything happens on the feeds, I’ll create a new thread, otherwise I’ll see you tonight for the live show!
