This weeks PoV competition was already going to be pretty huge. If Frankie loses, there was a good chance Cody and Derrick were going to take that opportunity to send him home. Caleb being Caleb decided to randomly tell Frankie that … in not so many words. Last night around 9:20 or so, Caleb and Frankie were sitting around playing pool when Frankie started grilling him a little more on being put on the block.
Ho Hum, no big deal, Caleb just casually tells Frankie it’s basically because the guys didn’t trust him, so he had to be contained by being on the block. Frankie naturally is pretty bothered by this and wonders where it’s coming from. Caleb pulls the ‘well, if anyone WOULD pull Victoria from the block, it would be you‘ routine, clearly making it worse. Frankie tries to point out that he had all the power last week and Victoria was still going home. Why in the world would he want to screw things up now?
Caleb stumbled around his words for a bit while Frankie continued with his shocked reaction. Cody then approached and was lucky enough to get caught up in the conversation and Frankie now grilling him. The loyal soldier Caleb threw himself on the grenade and said he was the one who put Frankie up, not Cody or Derrick. He just feels the best way to get to the final 4 with the guys would be to prevent the evil mastermind from possibly screwing things up. See, if Frankie was not on the block and won the PoV, he could very easily pull Victoria from the block and send either Cody or Derrick home.
That’s where this gets both funny and sad for Caleb. Derrick staged his fake fight with Victoria last week, and many people bought right into it for some reason. Derrick has also managed to convince Caleb that he would lose against any guy in the final 2. Even if you disregard the fight, Derrick still has the biggest motive to keep Victoria in the game because he basically admitted to Caleb he could only beat Victoria. When you combine that with Derrick only losing to Frankie by about 20 seconds in the last PoV, that makes it even more dangerous to keep Derrick off the block – from Caleb’s point of view at least.
Sure, none of them are aware of the reality that Derrick will likely win against ANY of the remaining houseguests, but poor Caleb is too dense to even connect the dots on the lies Derrick has been telling him. Derrick has been playing a great game so far, but he got sloppy there and almost had to make a move this week because of it. If Frankie does not win the power of veto, he has to go. Caleb can be left wondering what happened, but that won’t matter because Derrick has the numbers against him as well, and now has the motive. Caleb can’t be trusted (at least with his mouth) and has to go before Victoria as well. Boom, final 3 of Derrick, Cody and Victoria and you can just write the check out to the best player this season – Derrick.
However, should Frankie win the power of veto.. well.. Victoria will likely go home, and the numbers will be even heading into the final 4. Cody and Derrick versus Frankie and Caleb.. and based on the season so far, I certainly wouldn’t put my money on the former when it comes to competitions.
Hopefully veto competition is today. I need to see who wins.
