So this is what Big Brother 16 has become, drawing skittles out of a hat to see who will be nominated this week. Seriously. At midnight, shortly after the HoH reveal, the entire house (minus Donny and Victoria) were up in the HoH room trying to decide who was to go on the block this week. Everyone wants Donny gone, but nobody has the guts to get nominated with him and throw the BotB. I guess that will happen when they see someone (Christine) screw over a friend (Nicole) despite a ‘handshake agreement’ last Thursday night. If you’re new, they both won HoH, and agreed to not backdoor each other. Nicole went to jury last night.
(I have an idea, try playing the game and stop throwing competitions. Maybe you won’t lose to Derrick this season)
Christine drew the short skittle and ended up being matched with Donny. Caleb and Cody should be the other nominees. Derrick also convinced people he should remain HoH this week, so he’ll be the one to nominate Donny and Christine. Typically I’d be excited about the potential for drama over this, but it’s not going to happen. Donny is likely going to be upset both of his “allies” won HoH yet he is going to be one of the four nominated, but he’s not going to do or say anything about it. (Almost) everyone can agree Donny is a great guy, but he’s simply not cut out for this game. He’s going to head to jury and vote for the person who screwed him over the least. On the bright side, he should win America’s Favorite (get that campaign going. Don’t let Frankie win because of his sister).
Julie also revealed Team America missions last night, and they were just as dumb as they’ve been all season long. They either have to hide a piece of clothing from each houseguest and create a neighborhood watch or keep another person up for 24 hours (too bad they booted Brittany, she would have been easy for this). The first one is kind of funny and would make for good TV, but I’d rather it happen when America isn’t relying on Team America to stir the pot or save Donny. Before they found out what their mission is, they promised to complete it, but I am not even sure if people really care any more. Whenever they’re given missions that could impact their game, they pass… so I have a feeling we’re passing on showing interest in this twist.
Luckily this dual HoH role is ending this week because it’s starting to get real weird. Half the house will be nominated today and by Monday there will only be three people available as replacement nominees should someone win PoV. Hopefully next week will get more interesting, but Donny really has to win PoV this week for this to happen. Should Donny leave on Thursday, either he, Nicole or Hayden will re-enter the house that night, but they’ll just be pegged off as soon as possible (Oh, I suppose I should include Jocasta, but does anyone think she has a chance of winning a competition?).
If Donny somehow saves himself, he could potentially pick up an ally this Thursday and at least have a slightly better chance at advancing further in the game. We’ll know more about the veto tomorrow after it is played… who knows, maybe Donny can pull out a Botb win and shake up the house.
