Discussing Caleb’s Theory On America’s Favorite Player

Despite stepping away from the house last night to pick up my suit and eat a burger, I found myself sitting there talking to my girlfriend about, what else? Big Brother. I know this is a few days old, but it’s been lingering in my brain and I have been trying to figure out if Caleb is right or not.  About two-three days ago, Caleb and company were sitting in the HoH room talking about Donny and his chances of winning America’s Favorite, and most don’t think it will happen. Caleb was pretty adamant about it saying “It’s America’s Favorite Player.. not Person”.  This had my brain working like it did when I tried to figure out how they hand out MVP awards in baseball (The debate has always been.. the best person, the best person on the best team, or the person who turns the team into a winner”).

I came to the conclusion, the problem with Caleb’s thought process is that he emphasized the wrong word in that.  He focused on Player, but he should have actually focused on the word Favorite.  It’s America’s -Favorite- Player.  It has nothing to do with who played the best game, who won the most challenges or who made it the furthest.  It has to do with which player won over America and became a favorite player to watch, for whatever reason.  When you ask someone their favorite sports team, they aren’t obligated to pick the best team in the league.  When you ask their favorite movie or actor, it’s not always the won that won the most Academy Awards.  Being a favorite player is completely based on a random process where each viewer has a certain thing they like about people and certain things they don’t.

Caleb may be in the running for America’s Favorite, and I wouldn’t be upset if he won, but it will likely be because of his intangibles and personality rather than whatever he did in game.  We all know he certainly didn’t do a whole lot in game to win an award like that.

Donny will likely win America’s Favorite, and he’ll probably stand next to either Zach, Nicole or Caleb before Julie finally reveals the winner. It’s not because Donny was the best player in the house, it’s not because he won a certain amount of competitions, it’s simply because he is a kindhearted person who stuck true to himself throughout the entire season.  He loves the game, tried his butt off, but wasn’t given a big chance being thrown in the house with a bunch of 20-somethings.

Moving on… double eviction tonight. Likely no campaigning this afternoon (unlike last week), so it’s doubtful I’ll start a live feed thread.  I will put out my predictions and then we’ll get rolling on hopefully an exciting episode tonight!  Have a good Thursday. Weekend is almost here!

    Steve, I agree with you about America’s Favorite Player. I also think it will be Donny followed by Zach.
    Nicole should say something tonight before she leaves. This show has to be stirred up a little. Imagine if she says: “See you in a few minutes Christine or Frankie.” Those two want to evict each other but they haven’t noticed that they need to stick together.

    • Comments (25)

      She needs to say, “I will get the others to vote for the first person who has the balls to get out the 1 person that everyone wants out”.

    • Comments (3)

      I hope she does, she is the only player to show any GAME this season!

    • Comments (1)

      I think it would be awesome if the double eviction happened so that the person voted out tonight just grabs the hand of the person they want to be evicted and both leave the house.
      Julie could tell them…be careful which person you vote out.

        Sarah that would be totally awesome if that happened. I wish Big Brother would come up with a twist like that. Now that would be the twisted twist ever!

        What do y’all think it’s going on in the have not room. The feeds were down for hours and the houseguests said they heard construction. Now it’s sealed shut. Hmm.. what’s going on?

      • Comments (1446)

        And maybe start another hoh comp so need prop for that also

      • Comments (1288)

        It could be an isolation area for a competition punishment, like when Dan was isolated for 24 hours and came up with his funeral plan. Who was it that got isolated and had to hit a snooze alarm every 9 minutes for 24 hours?

    • Comments (22)

      I.m sorry but Zach should win ! because of your definition Americas favorite player because love or hate Zach he did the best he was entertaining

      • Comments (1092)

        If you want to get an idea of who is favorite, take a look at Donny’s profile above. Over one thousand thumbs up, 55 thumbs down. That’s a 95% popularity ratio.

        Zach only has 400 and change, with 300 something thumbs down. His popularity rating is only about 60%.

      • Comments (224)

        Zach’s popularity increased over time though, so those 300 thumbs downs could be people that have changed their minds about not liking him. I’m pretty sure it will still go to Donny anyway though.

      • Comments (843)

        I didn’t find Zach entertaining. He was like a 6 yr. old with ADHD, out of control in both actions and mouth. I taught school for 40 + years and had several students like that. Not their fault at all, but it is tiring and frustrating to those around them.

      • Comments (722)

        Oh! Bless your soul lady.

    • Comments (191)

      It’s the same on Survivor. Remember when Rupert won? He wasn’t the best player but he was the one everyone liked.

  2. Comments (130)

    I have a slight argument with Donny being the locked in America’s Favorite. By the time the results and season comes to a close, Donny could be a distant memory. Peoples perceptions and attentions waiver, especially when you don’t see after two-three weeks.

    Granted, we’re not likely to completely forget Donny, but the general public has a much better view of Frankie than us die-hards have. Plus Donny has already won money with TA.

    I don’t its a lock for him by any stretch.

    • Comments (722)

      Oh no they don’t. Google Frankie Grande.
      The first 3 articles..
      “Why America hates Frankie”
      “How he lost Americas favorite”
      “Ppl yelling over the fence”

      Hes getting noticed for all the wrog reasons.
      He’s the only one that thinks he is gonna win AFP.

      • Comments (211)

        Willie, let’s not forget about Caleb…another one who definitely thinks he going to win AFP (and can’t figure out how/why Donny would, lol.) Can’t wait to see the expression on both of their faces when they realize just how wrong they both were.

      • Comments (722)

        I’ve got a better shot of winning AFP than Caleb, Cody or Christine too!

      • Comments (400)

        I would vote for you Willie, before voting for any of those 3! Heck, I would even vote for Buffalo Bill 🙂

      • Comments (722)

        Hey thanks Renee! I got one more vote than Caleb will get!

      • Comments (79)

        Agreed. SteveBeans seems to like Caleb for some reason. He’s been my least favourite (besides Devin) all season long. He’s worse than Frankie.

      • Comments (722)

        Caleb is unlikable and not a good player.
        Hell so was Elissa though.

    • Comments (843)

      I disagree on the Frankie perception. Every poll I have looked at has Derrick, Christine, then Frankie as the bottom three. Yes, Donny won money but so did Frankie. If you go by the money, Frankie (says!) he is worth millions so based on that premise, why should he get it?

      • Comments (36)

        But Frankie says he’s using his winnings to build schools in Africa. Or so he claims. I doubt Frankie could find Africa on a map. Anyways, I’m voting for Donny. Zach is a close second for me but ultimately my vote will go to Donny.

      • Comments (152)

        I agree. I think Zach is a close second to Donny. But my votes will be for Donny all the way.
        Those other two yahoos are crazy thinking they have a chance at Amereica’s favorite. The mean person inside me hopes Frankie reads all the “Hate” about him and just disappears. (back behind his sister….lol) Caleb…well I personally don’t think he is that bad, but not a real contender for America’s favorite. He lost a lot of that when he didn’t make a big move last night!

    • Comments (10)

      I disagree Frank only made it to the final 7 lasting one more week then Donny, but still went out on day 62, He still won Americas favorite player.

  3. Comments (57)

    That’s why Derrick is running away with this season. No one but him has their sights set on the big prize. They’re already thinking about something other than $500,000. Why worry about the favorite player prize? Focus and do everything you can to secure the big one!

    • Comments (20)

      I have to say last night Derrick won me over. something about how he was talking and literally making things happen and his DR talk I found myself hoping he does win IT ALL and then he lets out what he does for a living & the HG go nuts LOL

      • Comments (1436)

        Right, Blakely.

        Derrick has been the total puppet master this year. Granted, he had a lot of idiots to lead around, but he knew the weakest minds in there and how to keep them close to him.

        Love him or hate him – Derrick is the only one playing the game for himself.

        The rest are all playing it for Derrick.

      • Comments (152)

        I agree. Derrick has played a heck of a game. The others have won more comps, but he didn’t have to. He controlled all the moves from the “Have not” room. lol

      • Comments (37)

        I think he has lost all of those comps on purpose. He kept his persona of being a weak player. I think he will suddenly start winning now that we are at the end to ensure his bidding is done.

      • Comments (1436)

        Could be a double edged sword if he’s up against a comp beast in the final.
        Were there any comp beasts this season?

      • Comments (453)

        Agree that he has been throwing them, he wasn’t happy to have won HOH, and was glad when he was dethroned, and admitted to throwing the last pov.

    • Comments (130)

      Fred, exactly what I was going to say!

      • Comments (1436)

        Yep, stupid Caleb said the other night that the BB prize money was “chump change”, compared to what he was going to make as a “celebrity” on the outside.

        I guarantee that no one will know Caleb’s name outside of Kentucky within 48 hours of the finale.

      • Comments (248)

        Jannie I so agree with you.

      • Comments (211)

        Jannie – and he said that with a straight face? I’m telling you, the kid is a legend in his own mind, LOL.

      • Comments (1436)

        And that’s not even the best line…
        Last night he was talking about how they can all go to concerts now and get shout outs from the stage and backstage passes.
        His favorite is Florida Georgia Line and he thinks(in his own mind) that he will be opening for them in the future!

      • Comments (722)

        Oh boy! I’ve got a better chance of having a successful country music career than Caleb does! And I don’t even sing!!

    • Comments (22)

      Yep derrick has my vote for 500,000 now for the 50,000

      Caleb
      Cody
      Frankie you choose

      Who will be in 2nd

      • Comments (79)

        I think Derrick will find a way to drag Victoria and Cody to the final 3 but then Cody will smoke Derrick and Victoria in the final HOH and he’ll bring Derrick with him to the end. Although, I’m not so sure, Derrick has a lock on 1st place. I don’t know if the jury recognizes how well he played. Either way, I think Derrick & Cody F2.

    • Comments (224)

      Because players these days seem to go into the house not to play the game but to use the show to launch a career in show business. You’d think some of them at some point would realize that very few people have managed to get anything long-term from being on the show.

      • Comments (722)

        Its funny how delusIonal these ppl are..
        Being on BB IS your big shot at stardom.
        You get to be a star on BB! And that’s it!

  4. Comments (3)

    Donnie, Nicole, then Zack are my three favorites…… But BB filled the house with lame people like Derrick Frankie and Caleb none of which have any ballz to make a game move….BORING….. Done with it all

  5. Comments (211)

    Really good point, Steve. If it was America’s Best Player, then you’re right, it opens the field up, but it’s America’ Favorite Player (which, I hope, will be Donny.)

    I agree with Smouse about the whole “Out of sight, out of mind” theory – I really hope BB start showing the audience what’s going on in the Jury House for that reason.

    Besides, it’s got to be more exciting than what’s going on in the BB house (or should I say, not going on…). It would be interesting to see what those in the Jury House are thinking right about now!

    • Comments (1446)

      Elissa went out about the time Donny did and she still won and she had many more haters than donny

      • Comments (130)

        Elissa also had the backing from a previous Winner and two time BB contestant, Rachel.

      • Comments (722)

        Rachel and team Brenchel had more weight than Ariana Grande EVER will with BB fans.

      • Comments (1446)

        But Rachael also had many haters. Only bb fans helped or hurt Elissa because rest of world did not know Rachael. Ariana’s fans probably not many bb fans. Probably have not even seen the show but possible she could run campaign to get them to vote anyway. I hope not

      • Comments (211)

        Trudy – that has been my concern, as well (Frankie’s sister getting her fans to vote for him as AFP.) I’m guessing most of her fans are teenagers, who probably would do it just to please her (without ever having seen the show.)

        As someone else posted the other day, the chance for something like that happening is a great reason for not having “celebrities” (or those related to celebrities?) on BB.

        It would be all kinds of wrong for Frankie to end up winning America’s Favorite Player because of something like that happening.

      • Comments (1446)

        I thought since I found out he was in house it was not fair to other HG. PPL NOT WATCHING BB should not be voting. There should be no unfair advantage. I think it’s ok to have relatives of past bb players in house cause that could be advantage or disadvantage. It hurt Elissa big time in house but outside house I think it was a wash. Just as many who voted for her because of Rachael also did not vote for her because of rachael

      • Comments (722)

        I truly doubt Arianas power.

      • Comments (1446)

        It would be a shame because I have not found even one person who likes Frankie on any of sites. If he got votes to win we would know why.

      • Comments (722)

        CBS pulled strings .. that’s how..
        Hope they don’t. . They didn’t with that last TA mission… so here’s hoping its fair..

  6. Comments (37)

    clab has showed his good side since amber left, but I don’t feel ppl have forgot about donny. it will be the worst move in the game if they can’t get Frankie out tonight. he needs to go before christene. it would be best for the other players if christene won if she would get Frankie out, but who she would put up is a gamble. clab, derrick, and cody was talking about if any of them won the needed to put up vic and Frankie, and just reassure Frankie he in one of the finale 4. but this was a mistake because if calb wins he won’t follow thru. and he can’t hide and thing from Frankie. I would have told calb at the last moment or late last night.

    • Comments (1446)

      If Cody wins and puts up Frankie and Christine Derrick and Vic might save Frankie. He would then know Derrick screwed him but might be too late to help himself unless he wins pov next time. If Christine wins she needs to put up Frankie and another male cause guys might save Frankie. I hope for once they make decent move. Worst thing is id Derrick Frankie win hoh. Cause they will put up Chris and vic. No males go home. And if he’ll turns cold and Vic wins she puts up Cody and Christine I bet. And Chris goes home Whoever Derrick tells her. I want male or Frankie out tonight

  7. Comments (1792)

    No one has said ANYTHING as they walk out Zach was the closes to doing anything remotely entertaining

    • Comments (400)

      That’s true Dan, and I’m the one giving the thumbs up on your comment. But, I’m hoping that the reason they justify it will be they they did not know whether or not they were coming back into the game and were afraid of saying something that would jeopardize them at that point. Unfortunately, I don’t think any of these people this year are that smart. I think we have been dealt a year of lame players that are just happy if they make it to the jury house knowing that they get extra money beyond their regular stipend at that point.

      • Comments (1792)

        Making it to the jury house was so many of there goals
        It’s hard to believe any of these hours guest watch BB before this? Some did not know how the veto worked The others just fell into going along with the house Never trying to do anything for them self Put any of these people in the first 10 season and none make it to jury That includes Frankie ,Derrick, Cody,Caleb,and Christine

  8. Comments (3)

    Good commentary…except Caleb in the running for America’s favorite player? You have to be kidding. If there was a booby prize for the least favorite player, Caleb the Stalker, would be right there with Devin in the vote for it.

  9. Comments (10)

    Derrick is using all his undercover cop skills in this game. Read people, manipulate them, change your strategy on a moment’s notice when things shift and be very likable. He has this sewn up. He has gotten rid of anyone who had a whiff of what his game is–Donny and soon Nicole. I hate to say it but the others just can’t see the forest for the trees and deserve what they get. He will take Victoria to the final because she can’t make any argument about her game play. She had none, they all know it.

    • Comments (2)

      I see Cody, Derrick and Victoria as final 3 and Victoria and Derrick as final two. Derrick will win.
      I honestly have to say…Im a donny hater!!! He didn’t play 100% honest. Yes he was on the block and Derrick asked him straight up, are you talking about me telling everyone im lying to them. Donnie lied straight to his face and said he was hearing untrue statements.
      Donny is a nice guy yes, but that doesn’t mean he played the game and americas favorite player is that key word is “favorite player” donny didn’t play a game! Not a good one at least.

      • Comments (843)

        Are you watching the same BB we are? Derrick has lied to everyone in the game, including Victoria, who is supposed to be his ‘pet.’ Donny had Derrick figured out from week 2, he played the game and didn’t have minions like Derrick to do his dirty work. He won HOH, POVs, and got himself off the block without ANY help, unlike Derrick, who has lied and manipulated the entire game.

      • Comments (1446)

        Donny never mentioned derricks name!!! But your over is yours thankfully u r in minority

      • Comments (1446)

        But your vote is yours. Typo. Also Americas favorite player is player America liked the best does not mean player who played best that’s usually the winner.

      • Comments (224)

        I liked Donny, but I agree that he didn’t play the best game. But, it wasn’t because he wasn’t honest, it was because he was TOO honest. He didn’t pretend to go along with the people that could have gotten him to the end. When he didn’t buy someone’s lie or trust them, he made it pretty obvious that he wasn’t buying it. I really think Derrick would have been willing to work with Donny if in that conversation in the pantry, Donny had acted more receptive to what Derrick was saying. That’s pretty much what re-started the Donny as a target movement.

        There’s also nothing wrong with lying in this game. It’s what gets you to the end. Most people go into the house knowing they’re gonna have to tell at least a few lies to save themselves.

      • Comments (1288)

        Donny should have admitted his conversations with Caleb, Christine and Cody after he had won the safety of the BotB. Those conversations, where Donny wanted to target Frankie and Derrick as the power of the house, went directly back to Frankie and Derrick. Donny should have realized that and told Derrick “you really have them controlled don’t you”. At that point Derrick probably would have opened up to keeping Donny.

  10. Comments (412)

    If Donny doesn’t win AFP, I can only hope it goes to Zach. It could be Nicole but probably not. It better not go to an egotistical maniac like Frankie. I would lose hope in humanity.

  11. Comments (843)

    I don’t expect anything big in tonight’s double eviction. If Christine wins HOH, Victoria will more than likely go—always take the easy target is their motto. If anyone else wins, it will be Christine.

    • Comments (1436)

      I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Mango is in trouble.
      Maybe if Cody wins HOH??

      • Comments (644)

        Papa Derrick already shut down the idea last night about voting Frankie out in the double eviction. Cody said he wanted to vote him out, but Derrick said no, that he wants Christine out. Derrick is quite a skillful manipulator. He sees that Christine will save Cody (Christine is Cody’s Victoria but smarter game wise), and that’s not good for Derrick’s game. And Cody being a good son to Papa Derrick said he would do what Derrick wants. So Cody is preparing the silver platter to hand Derrick the money on finale night.

      • Comments (1436)

        Papa Derrick…lol

        Can’t wait until he explains his game play on finale night.
        He HAS to explain it in order to win, right?? Because he won so few comps…

        Or did he butter them all up enough before he sent them to jury.

        ??

      • Comments (644)

        Jannie, if the game continues as it is and people in jury truly vote for who was the best player, Derrick will win if he is fin final two, no doubt about it. But if he and Victoria are in final two it would be funny if Victoria wins it, I really wouldn’t mind that. Imagine him being so worried about his competition, when in the end his competition is sitting right beside him, he took her to the end. Maybe not fair, but a funny ending.

      • Comments (1436)

        I don’t know what I would think about a Victoria win. A few weeks ago I would have been horrified, but it would be sweet irony to have Derrick play such a dominant game only to be screwed by the person that he thought he could beat in the end.
        But then there’s Victoria – how hard would she fight for herself to the jury?? She was ready to self evict a few nights ago when Derrick even mentioned the possibility of him going to jury before her…

      • Comments (843)

        Victoria would probably hand over her winnings to Derrick anyway.

      • Comments (224)

        The jury don’t always judge best play by the number of comps won. Andy didn’t win very many comps, but convinced others that he controlled the moves made by others. Ian didn’t win that many comps, but the jury wasn’t going to let Dan win again no matter what.
        The best game moves don’t always involve a specific competition. Like Dr. Will asking everyone to vote him out cause he hates them all and doesn’t want to be around them anymore, and making various players in the house “honorary” members of chilltown right before evicting them; Jason convincing Marcellas not to use the veto to save himself; What’s-her-face that basically invented the back-door plan; Dan’s Big Brother Funeral, convincing Frank to have Jen use the veto on him when Frank had been targeting Dan for weeks, convincing Danielle to use the veto on him and put her boyfriend on the block, ect.

        Jannie (sorry, no reply button under your comment) she was in the All Star edition that Boogie won. She just didn’t get very far that season.

        I think she called it the 6 finger plan or something like that but it later came to be known as the Back Door.

      Christine not stupid and she knows she will be next female to go. She should put up males and one would go. If one wins pov she puts up other male. Only chance she has. They are coming after her this week if she doesn’t win so she has nothing to lose and maybe a lot to gain

    • Comments (1446)

      I think only one who would make a big move would be Christine. Don’t like her but I’m rooting for her to win tonight

    Comments (1136)

    I agree with you Steve on AFP except I think it should be Donny,Nichole not Donny, Zach. Zach made no big moves in the game either, he just spouted off a lot and that was usually out of frustration or being egged on by the detonators. Nichole at least tried ( albeit weakly) to make moves. I don’t think people will forget Donny and I think they’ll start showing the jury house after tonight with Donny filling everyone in on the truth about the remaining houseguests. Especially Derrick. Although I think Donny will vote for Derrick as will everyone else if he makes it to final two.

  13. Comments (327)

    Derrick is one smart cookie! His use of manipulation and intimidation has worked all season long! Since day one, he has used the old tactic, if it gets back to me, THEN I know it was you, with everyone in the house! I remeber being afraid of my older sister when she would use that speech when we were younger and she was looking for an out of losing a privilege and being grounded.

    Just my thought, bUT wow oh wow, it sure does irk me when he does that kind of intimidation. Nobody wants to be called out as a tattle tale and he has that form of intimidation down perfectly!

    • Comments (7)

      Caleb is on to Derrick though. Victoria is Derrick’s pet, Christine is Cody’s pet….and Caleb want Frankie as HIS pet. They will all need help to get to F2 and that is each of their methods….having a ‘pet’. Of course these people are not as stupid as Derrick thinks……it’s just that Derrick has thought of the end game better….but much of it will come to chance. He is not shoe in.

    Hello fellow house guest, let me start by say I loved playing with you all. I know you are shocked I made it this far, because I did not win any comps, and was used as a pawn. But that was my strategy, to find someone who could put all my plans in place. This is why I promised to take Derrick with me to the end. I had to have some to infiltrate the males in this house that would other wise not bow down to my superior strategy.

      First Robin, now Joan.

      Not a huge fan, but still sad and shocking nonetheless.

      Hang in there, Don Rickles!

        42?? You’re still a young pup…
        I’ve got almost 10 years on you 🙂

        You’re only as old as you feel!

        If it makes you feel any better I’m older than you. LOL

        Willie you are not old at 42. It’s like when Donny said he was old because he is 42. He was older than the others in the house but that doesn’t make him old. I’m 47 and I don’t think I’m old. Maybe when I’m 80 then I think I’ll be old. I know a 90 year old man that looks better than many 70 year old people. We are no spring chickens Willie, but we’re not old 🙂

        42? You are just a baby. I have a son your age.

        Mr Willie, being on the fourth floor isn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. Now wrinkles, that is a whole other story. LOL!

        I get it guys. . And thanks.
        I don’t want to offend anyone of course..

        I’ve been coming to terms with getting older.. I lost my last grandparent this year, sold the house.. its over… you know.. no going back..
        I mourned my childhood. I officially became an adult when I lost my best ally (Gramma C)..

        Sorry. I had a bit of a moment there…

      Hi Shoe Lover. I just found out through your post that Joan Rivers passed away. She was funny. May she rest in peace. I’m going to say a prayer for her and her family. I feel bad for her daughter, they were very close. 🙁

        Good evening Miss Lilly!
        I came across the article while trying to update myself to the world of texting lingo and social media lingo too. Going to a galaxy 5 phone from a flip phone is crazy quick driving me nuts.

        We are in a world where lives can change any moment and hope her family finds peace and understanding for their loss.

    I have a question, Does anyone else remember there being a dog? ( i think a pom) I think in season 1 maybe 2 Just curious!

    We all have our favorites, people that played the game, Nicole, caleb, derrick(the best by far), Nicole, Zach, and Frankie!!! People who just rode the heals of these people: Donny, Cody, Christine, Victoria, Hayden and all the others that were evicted.
    Derrick said it in his DR lastnight, Donny was catching on to Derrick and he lied to derricks face and said that he wasn’t trying to get the house to see it. Now everyone is saying Donny has played an honest game…NO HE HASNT!!!! im happy to see nicole go also…she jumps back and fourth too much plus that voice is annoying! Victoria also…i would love to see her leave, Frankie has played a game, but watching the live feeds…he disgusts me as a person, the comments he made about victoria and frankly, i agree with what Frankie said “donny didn’t care about Team america like Derrick and Frankie did…twice Donny refused to do the mission!

    • Comments (644)

      Kim, Derrick also didn’t like one or two of the missions but he blamed it all on Donny. The funny part was that then he went to the DR and told us that it was all Donny’s fault. Doesn’t he know we know the truth? There’s cameras on them 24/7. I don’t mind him manipulating the ones in the house since that is his strategy to win the game, but don’t try to manipulate the viewer also. That’s dumb and won’t get you any sympathy from me.

    • Comments (426)

      Donny did not refuse the TA mission. He just brought up the fact that it could possibly have an effect on their own games as they discussed it. It was Derrick who actually called the shot about not doing it, but then blamed it on Donny in the DR.

      • Comments (843)

        Exactly right, Colby. Donny brought up his fears but told Derrick, if they wanted to do it, he would. Derrick is the one who decided not to do the mission then tried to blame it on Donny.

      I love how you say Nicole played the game and Donny rode the heels of others when Donny did much more then Nicole ever did in the house. Donny won more competitions, didn’t fall for Derricks charades and actually made an attempt to turn the house against him. Unlike Nicole who since coming back has just sat on the couch doing little to no campaigning. Also Donny wouldn’t complete the mission because those could ruin his game. In BB you play for yourself first and others later. Also evidently Frankie and Derrick din’t care for Team America either because they tried to get rid of Donny multiple times as well.

    • Comments (1446)

      They all refused one time not just Donny and for the other one it was not going to even involve franki as he had no vote and there is no way Derrick would have done the mission. It would have gotten blood on his hands and everyone would have been mad at him. Donny just happened to say no first and you can believe Derrick breathed a sigh of relief since he wasn’t going to do it then turned around and blamed Donny. America was not fooled but evidently you were

      And Nichole can’t help her voice it’s her thick michigan accent. How would you feel if someone said your voice was annoying and it was your accent you can do nothing about. I’m from Alabama and sure to many sound funny because of my southern accent. I’m sure you have some kind of accent also

      • Comments (722)

        I’ve got a Charlotte accent and a Colombian accent. I write a whole lot better than I sound.. they would have to subtitle me..

        Also, I’m not tone deaf. I pick up and can imitate an accent. I would sound like Nicole after being around her for awhile…

      • Comments (224)

        It’s more than just an accent, it’s also kind of nasally and she draws out every 3rd or 4th word longer than she has to. But, you are right, a lot of her voice isn’t something she can help and is a pretty superficial thing to complain about.

    When were the HGs informed about the double eviction, or do they know? I hope not. It’s not as fun when they are prepared for it.

    Wow caleb has a huge ego… Does he relize Donny to this point has won more comps than him? In fact I think with the exception of franki Donny had the most wins this season. Infact Donny beat caleb in a bob where his partner tried to throw the challenge. The only reason caleb has last longer is he got lucky and ended up in an alliance when every one but two people(Frankie and Derrick) only cares about making it to the final 5. One can say Donny was in fact a better player than caleb. But like it has been said is Americas favorite which to me is Donny in a land slide. As far as people forgetting about him I believe the last two american favorites went out about the same time.

    Wow, you Donny fans are some serious, “don’t anyone say a negative thing about Donny” people. No one is saying that Derrick hasn’t lied. They’re only saying that Donny has lied. And he did lie to Derrick. He also said, “I’m not here for Team America. I’m here for Donny Thompson”; yet he constantly lamented the fact that TA let him down. He also wanted to get out Derrick out in the worst way, who was also part of TA; so his TA argument doesn’t make much sense to me. Guess it all depends who your favorite is; you’re always willing to make excuses for them. Personally, I love Donny and I hope he wins AF. But I love Derrick more and hope he goes home with the 500k.

    My vote goes to Donny for AFP. Derrick has played a good game with his skills as a cop but he hasn’t been playing with the smartest crayons in the box.

    If it America’s Favorite PLAYER, then it should be Derrick, cause he’s the only one playing the rest are being led.
    If its America’s FAVORITE Player, then Donny gets it, though I dislike the Duck Dynasty crap..
    If Victoria gets to Final 3, she should get it America’s Favorite PLAYER, cause she played them all.

    Derrick, Cody and Caleb are playing to win? or are they just playing to make sure each wins money? I think y’all should worry more about those 3 gettin’ it on than about Cody and Christine.

    The end of the story is that this season players played more or less a smart game, and a smart game is a boring game.

    When Donny didn’t come clean to Derrick, he decided not to save Donny. Why does he take the entitled road and think it is okay for him to lie to everyone but if they lie to him the get sent home?
