Big Brother 16 – Huge Veto Competition Today


First off, I want to thank you again for your support yesterday. I was a bit numb as I wrote my intro, and still can’t even believe it because it sounds too fake to be true.  Just before I was set to do my morning recap, my mother called and told me the lump on my father’s neck that was supposed to be ‘nothing’ turns out it could be soft cell cancer and needs it removed asap.  I spent the day feeling like I was punched in the chest by The Mountain (I finished GoT last night), so now it’s just a massive waiting game.  I didn’t want to write about it, and I am still not sure if I should, but I had to get it off my mind. It’s been a pretty brutal summer but have been handling it fairly well because I can open up the blog and just write, and the support I see in the comments is just absolutely mind blowing.  Thank you again.

Now, on to the game (hopefully this week I can just talk about BB). I don’t like to hype up competitions and pretend they’re big when they’re not. Last week’s PoV – meh. Garbage. Didn’t matter who won really. It would have been nice to see Donny win, but it wasn’t a game changer. Nicole was going home had Donny won.  This week, however… it’s big. Christine and Nicole sit on the block, and even though she’s against the entire house, if Nicole can pull off a victory, we will finally get to witness the beginning stages of that alliance crumbling.

Caleb will instantly think about replacing her with Victoria, but Derrick is not going to let his puppet go that easy.. and Derrick has been running the house. I can see him convincing Caleb to put up Cody or Frankie as a ‘pawn’ to make sure Christine is indeed eliminated because if Victoria goes up, there is a good chance she’ll go home.  Derrick is going to convince Caleb that eliminating Victoria is a waste of an HoH, and the only way to make sure that doesn’t happen is to keep her off the block.

However, all of that is completely moot if Nicole doesn’t return from the veto competition with that necklace. Speaking of the veto necklace and continuing my GoT’s references.. what veto competition was Sensa Stark competing in to win this?


Big Brother should totally introduce the black PoV where the winner can place it around the neck of someone who not only has to leave the house, but apparently has to join the Night’s Watch.  Too many GoT references today?  I can’t help it, I watched three episodes last night to fully catch up. Love that show.

More updates later today.  Big day for Nicole!

    Steve, yesterday I watched when the live feeds for Utopia started. Since you asked, I think it’s a good idea if you start a blog for that. I’m watching right now, they’re planting seeds. The HGs in BB should go and help out! In Utopia they have to really work, and they wake up early.
    Now about BB, I hope Nicole wins the veto, and if she doesn’t I hope they evict Christine, she is really a bigger threat to the guys than Nicole, who is all alone in this game.

    Steve beans, I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. I hope he does well and I hope that your mom gets the help she needs and if they both recover. As someone who lost both parents one month apart when I was only 20 I can totally understand part of what you’re going through.
    my prayers and thoughts are with you and with your family.

    SB – hope the best for your pops…

    I kinda hope Victoria wins Veto and saves Nicole … then the alliance will start to crumble….

    • Comments (15)

      That would be amazing! But poor Victoria can’t seem to win any kind of comp! She was hoping for a physical comp all week and then still couldn’t come close to winning. She’s waking up to the fact she’s a “throw away” player and it’s her only value in the game.

  5. Comments (16)

    My thought are with you and your family SB! <3

    Im hoping the veto is won by Nicole, so we can actually get some drama in this house, but I dont think thats going to happen at all. This season been pretty dry /:

    Sorry for all you’re going thru right now Steve. I sucks big time when our parents have to deal with these things and suddenly we the children feel like the parents. Prayers to you all.
    Just have to say it but Victoria hasn’t won anything so far. Nicole will have to save herself…again. Christine is a much bigger threat to the guys than she is. Funny how people will do anything for money…right Christine?? I don’t want to sling any mud her way but she does deserve all we sling.

      Have you seen Christine’s husband? I think she’s stroking Cody for more than just the money.

        I highly doubt that Cody would give her the time of day outside of the house.

      • Comments (722)

        Codys dad basically said that on his segment that in real life.. it wouldnt happen.. poor Christine.. almost feel sorry for her…
        If she wasnt so arrogant, so unawares and so cocky..

    Anyone else find it strange that for two years in a row a house guest (this year Christine) has ” figured out” that Stay or Fold hadn’t been played yet and then they form a strategy of who is to stay or fold? Last year they formed a strategy ahead of the competition but, if I remember correctly, Spencer blew it up.
    Do you think Production had anything to do with these “revelations”?

    • Profile photo of marie2
      Comments (609)

      Yes, that is very strange, but it makes me wonder if BB has become so predictible that the HGs plan how to handle the comps even before they come into the house. This is supposed to be the most “twisted” summer of BB; yawn, when is it gonna happen?

      • Comments (674)

        Yes, it should be an automatic:

        Player farthest away is automatically eliminated until last one standing.

      • Comments (722)

        I know I would figure a strategy for that ice comp.. maybe bending my knees and “riding the ice”, snow boarder- style.. havent figured how Id walk UP the ice, but “squatting and riding” seems like the best way to come back down..

        That sounds like something Mango would say. Sorry!

    Hmm…so winter is coming for the Detonators? Has stupid Christine realized she is on the bottom of Detonator alliance yet or does she think she is a pawn up there? She should have stuck with the nerd alliance.

    • Comments (644)

      If Christine doesn’t know that she is the last one in the totem pole she’s very ignorant. Whoever they put up as a pawn is almost always the least important in the alliance. She could have asked them if I’m not going home, why not put up Derrick or Frankie.

    • Comments (722)

        Oct will be here before we know it!

        They screwed with the wrong ppl..

        you know Rick really said ” the word”, but theyd have to beep it to run it and that ruins the whole effect of what hes saying.. so they reshot it with “screwed”..

  14. Comments (16)

    Glad to see you talk about your parents. Even though we are all strangers in a sense you should feel free to let it out and vocalize. I come here for my bb updates and you deliver thank you . Now to the show SO Christine’s husband is ok with her actions nor her mom , dad or brother how interesting. Said it before and will say it again for real bb entertainment lets show Christine when she gets home that I would watch with pleasure

    When it rains, it pours.. that only means that after the storm you will have a beautiful rainbow..

      Well said Willie! It made me remember all the times my dad would say ‘keep your chin up’ when I was facing some difficult life situations. (then he would add ‘and don’t let the bastards get to you’, lol)

  16. Comments (16)

    Sorry meant. To say her husband in NOT ok with her actions

    Can Frankie be a skank? Because he’s really coming across as one. My only concern is when he finally gets to jury house, will he try to poison everyone there with all of his lies about the other HGs.

    • Comments (644)

      Even though I wanted Frankie out of the house long time ago, it would be nice to see him make final three and then eliminated. So close, but he gets nothing. Not even America’s Favorite Player. That way he’ll stay in the BB house and not poison the jury members.

  18. Comments (15)

    Prayers went up for your family today. And they will continue. Stay strong!!

  19. Comments (37)

    Christine needs to be the second to go and they need to back door Frankie this time or they won’t get him out and he wins hoh easily. then Christine, nick is under control. Derrick will see to that and sent her out on the 3dr vote. cody or clab will need to go but with Derricks game he has a 1 on 1 game with everyone in the house, so it won’t matter who with really. but cody will be the only one to give him a run for the money in the end.

  20. Comments (9)

    Sorry to hear about both parents. I pray they both recover.
    As well as pray for the DR’s taking care of the.

  21. Comments (191)

    Nicole must win. If not the only thing to watch for is how Derrick will keep Victoria in the game.

    Steve prayers for you & your family. Derrick is definitely trying to work Nicole. I hope she knows his game.

    • Comments (644)

      I know Derrick is a manipulator, he is being nice to Nicole, and she needs that right now. Look at Frankie and how he is and talks about her.

      • Comments (2)

        Nicole has never liked Frankie, and I’m pretty sure if her plan to backdoor him would have worked, she wouldn’t have been nice to him while he was on the block.

  23. Comments (37)

    she does but, to stay in the house she has to go along with him. besides all she really want is to stay longer then Christine.

  24. Comments (37)

    Frankie and Christine. out has been her goal for a long time. after that she wouldn’t mind going. and would get derrick the votes in the jury house to help derrick. most will respect derricks game in the end. or atleae before the find out hes a cop

  25. Comments (4)

    Steve this is the first time I have written here although I folow your writing. I just want to say I am sorry to hear about your mom and now your dad having cancer. I went through the same thing in 2007 when my dad and my son were both diagnosed with different cancers.All I can tell you is keep the faith, be strong for them and tell them often that you love them. Be there for them even if they get a bit cranky and forget and forgive them.Your strength will help them be strong to fight the cancer. I will be thinking of you and your family often and praying for good results.

  26. Comments (15)

    hopefully Nicole won’t psych herself out and win veto. derrick figured out pretty quickly what buttons to push on the hg to keep folks in line. his experience as a cop hasn’t hurt and couple that with a bunch of weak women(I consider myself a feminist so that’s hard to say)derrick has been brilliant. he’s not my favorite hg but i’ll credit where credit’s due.

    positive energy coming to your family sb.

    • Comments (674)

      Derrick was brilliant volounteering for havenot. It must have figured Nicole would be the other.

      This gives him access to her all week. Time to bond, and maybe even form yet anothet final two if he thinks she is gullable enough.

    • Comments (722)

      Its not that the women are weak.. “women” is so subjective.. more like “girls”..

      Weve got a grown man trained to deal with criminals and other grown men who usually spend their time in correctional facilities .. these are children who have probably never had a parking ticket

      If the house was more adults (Donny- types), Derrick wouldnt get away with what he has. These children will fall for anything.. the okey doke..
      Derrick eliminated the only adult who knew what was really going on..

    What has Frankie actually done besides the monkey voice on Dora? Appropriate since he does resemble a monkey and has the manners of one. Apologies to monkies everywhere. He keeps talking about Broadway but I can’t find anywhere he was actually IN something.

    • Profile photo of DanDaMan
      Comments (1288)

      You must not be looking very hard, his Wiki is readily available.

      Dual Bachelor of Art and Bachelor of Science degrees in 4 years, national stage tour with Dora, Mama Mia on Broadway etc. It also covers the philanthropic efforts he has made. He is not a big star but he is a paid performer.

      • Comments (722)

        Hes definitely burned bridges if hes been reduced to Youtube anđ reality TV.

      • Profile photo of mouse
        Comments (843)

        I did read that. If you actually look up each thing, it’s a lot of hype mostly plus Wikipedia is easily modified by anyone. He wasn’t IN Mama Mia, he was an understudy. The only things he produced were regional theater and off broadway and very few of those. As for the philanthropic efforts, that was ‘granddaddys’s’ money. Yes, he went to Africa but I doubt there was much actual work done by him.

    • Comments (2)

      I was watching an older episode of SNL and saw that Frankie resembles Chris Kattan. Maybe he could pick up a gig as an impersonator for Kattan if his social media mogul stint doesn’t work out.

  28. Comments (37)

    he’s been off broadway for years he’s been following his sister around. I am so glad is play failed. I think it took him down a few pegs. lol he has been running around scared since.

    Hi Steve,

    I think the best thing to do is to stay positive, and to be there for your family.

    Cancer is a scary word to hear, and disease to be faced with.

    However, the flipside of that coin is, is that research has come a long way in the last couple of decades.

    With somewhat early detection, proper procedure to remove the tumorous cells, chemo and radiation, and things look a lot better than someone who had the same thing a few years back.

    No, it isn’t easy to see it happen to someone you know, but, try not to look at it as if there is no hope.

    We briefly chatted about my dad. For him, he went through almost two years of mis-diagnosis because what he had was extremely rare. So, surgery removal was not an option because the tumor was too big when it was finally discovered, and the location was too tricky to attempt removal.

    Hopefully detection was early, and that your dad can handle the chemo and radiation well.

    Being positive in front of your folks is so important. Venting your anger, sadness, and frustration when they are not around to see it is also best.

    Show them the guy that is there to help. The positive guy whose good spirits are going to help everyone get through. You being there for them gives them strength.

    Again, all the best to you and your family. I sincerely mean it.

    Hates BB now that Donny is gone! It’s a home run for Derrick now if the others don’t soon wake-up. Wishing you and your family positive thoughts as you go through this! You aren’t alone!

  32. Comments (198)

    I would sure love to hear a lot more hollas than we have. The best time would be is when they are sleeping it sure would liven up the place.

  33. Comments (37)

    is this really the last season? I wish they would do the rest of the comps/vop different from the last seasons, throw the hg off this to easy for them and boring for us. when there the same as the other years. all these hg know what’s coming. with all the beast in the house and in there on why there smart to. I would like to see the logs like the first on again whit there sore muscles it would be a channeled for all them.

  34. Comments (19)

    Haha a great GoT game would be to do a Night’s Watch game of enderance, where contestants have to hang onto “The Wall” while the night’s watch dumps their “Defenses” of Water, Slime, Paint, etc, to try and drop them off the wall. The Host could even dress up as John Snow and every time something is about to fall you can hear him go “Ready Arms!” or something… if you haven’t seen up to episode nine of season four, you won’t get the reference just yet.

      • Comments (19)

        (Oh, so you’ve seen that part!) Haha yeah, they’ve used foamy type distractions before, I don’t see why they can’t add a huge foam anchor come swinging down (Maybe even more than one as a BB fun twist). Someone needs to get on this, stat.

    12:08 Feeds are back. Frankie is not playing in the Veto. He says he hopes he and Jeff will co-host. Derrick says that’s one person who will probably never appear. Frankie says “Well they would change it for me!”

    Hello HGs! Why are you keeping him. Perfect time to Backdoor Frankie right out of there.

    Wasn’t Pow Pow some kind of big DJ in New York City? I kept thinking, if she was that into that kind of scene, she should have recognized or at least heard of Frankie.
