There is no denying that the casting people took a more conservative turn this season after the mess that was Big Brother 15. That said, we can agree the one bright spot this season was none of than RanceyPants himself – Zach Rance.  He has delivered plenty of laughs, plenty of surprises and even a few arguments.. and tonight he has a chance to deliver one more thing – a re-entry into the Big Brother house!

Like much of the season, there isn’t a whole lot of buildup to my prediction threads. Zach is leaving. Just like most of the season, the decision to vote someone out was pretty much made on the Saturday someone won power of veto.   So, there is no need to build it up, no need to create drama for clicks, it’s simple, Zach will be voted out tonight, most likely unanimously.

The big story coming out of tonight will be what happens after he is voted out. Julie has already announced the first four jury members will compete to re-enter the house, and three of them have as good of a chance as any to not only re-enter, but win HoH (should the competition be similar to BB15’s re-enter). Last season, the four jury members stood on the endurance wall alongside the regulars and the last one standing won HoH.  The same can happen tonight and we could see a massive power shift considering there is also no more dual HoH twist.

(note – in bb15, the last jury member on the wall re-entered the house, but if they were last overall, they also won HoH. So the last jury member standing will re-enter regardless. If they do bb15’s approach)

Just try to picture the house should Hayden, Nicole or Zach win HoH tonight. It will be incredible entertainment watching the rest scramble for their Big Brother lives. Donny will be safe another week, already fragile alliances will be shattered and bb16 could take a less predictable approach to the final 4.

Instead of doing predictions of who is leaving (Zach), let’s think who they would target should one of the jury members win HoH if they’re eligible to compete.

Hayden and Nicole – I’d say almost for sure they would go with a combination of Derrick, Cody and Frankie to get one of them out.  Two will be initial nominees, one will be the potential replacement.

Zach – This is tough. He is very smart, but he also knows he is very alone. As much as I think he’d target Frankie, I also think he’d somehow believe Frankie’s crap about working together before he’s screwed over again.  Zach is just as likely to eliminate Frankie as he is Victoria, and that’s kind of scary despite how entertaining he is.

Jocasta – Please don’t let this happen…. but, should it happen, I honestly have no clue. The only thing Jocasta guarantees is Donny safety for another week.

Finally, I’d like to say thank you to the people who have showed tremendous support after I said what I did in the comment section last night.  I was planning on avoiding going into any details as talking about it makes it real, and I guess I’m still in the denial stage. Between that and my wedding racing up on me, my mind hasn’t been 100% on Big Brother lately, but I am still trying my best and will make efforts to keep the posts flowing and the conversation going.  Almost everyone comes here to read Big Brother news, not my personal junk, so I’ll just stick to that going forward.  I am just posting this because I wanted to again give my sincere thank you to the words of support and encouragement, and the stories others have shared about similar situations.  I also want to thank you for being readers all summer, you make this really fun to write about!

Enough rambling.. big show tonight!  Let’s all cross our fingers for a Hayden/Nicole/Zach re-enter and HoH win so they can completely stir the pot!


CBS posted this image about the comeback competition….  (as did mouse via mortys)


From what it looks like, my guess is players will have to roll or slide something to the middle and try to get it as close to center as possible without going out of their area. Since it’s a boxing theme, I’m going to guess you’ll have multiple disc things and can knock others off.

Do you know what this means?  Carnival game.  Jocasta’s chances of re-entering the house shot right up because these are the type anyone can win.  Here are my odds of winning something like this..

Zach – 29%
Hayden – 27%
Nicole – 25%
Jocasta – 19%

Why not all of them 25%?  Because even though carnival games are a lot of luck, there is some skill involved. Not much, but some.

    Sorry steve beans that you are having a hard time. Thank you for taking the time to keep us updated. Love and prayers for you!

      It’s a good lesson to us all when were on blogs or in chat rooms…
      You never know what someone is going through so don’t be an a**hole.

        Agreed. Usually those a-holes are miserable and have lives that are worse than ours… That’s why they’re a-holes 😉 Which is no excuse to come on a blog and bash the blogger. Everyone has a brain and conscience and I don’t pity people who choose to be bullies.

      Hayden because I feel Zach will say all he has to say during the comp and Nicole and Jocasta would be instant prey in the house and the chances Hayden could start an alliance with Donny and Victoria he could get her she has a crush on him and with no Nicole Derek loses her and hopefully Cody will join them he knows he’s behind Donny

  2. Comments (9)

    I really want Nicole to come back! She was the only one that wasn’t afraid to make big moves. If she does come back, she NEEDS to get rid of Derrick, Cody, Frankie or Caleb (maybe even Christine too).

    • Comments (138)

      If she comes back, she’ll forgive Christine and try to work with her again. Again.

      • Comments (383)

        I am afraid you might be right about that. Nicole got screwed over by Christine, then made up with her, then got back-doored. Zach got screwed over by Frankie, called him on it, said he was done, then they made up… and he got back-doored. I was really hoping Zach was just SAYING they were good but actually didn’t trust him at all.

      • Comments (9)

        I would just hope she learned her lesson about Christine, and maybe she wouldn’t trust her again. Maybe she would align with someone like Caleb and make it far in the game.

      • Comments (1446)

        I don’t think you could rip Caleb’s loyalty away from Mango now that he knows he’s got connections to fame. Caleb has been up his butt since the news broke. Maybe Mango will be the one who will need the restraining order – do you really think he will want to pal around w/Caleb outside of the house??
        That’s right, I’m referring to him as Mango from now on. I can’t get the image out of my head every time I see that pink, backstabbing, conceited, pompous, arrogant little weasel.

      • Comments (383)

        Mango. LOL

    • Comments (644)

      After leaving the house Nicole said her target was Christine and I also think she said Cody because everything she told Cody, Cody told Christine. She said she would take Derrick to final 2 even if he had a chance to win over her, which is something dumb. She was my favorite to come back but after saying that about Derrick I don’t think I want her back. But she’s one of the three nicest persons that have been on the show this season (together with Donny and Hayden). I also like Zach but I think he likes the Detonators and would go back to them and he would get evicted right away. Then there’s Jocasta, NOT. And the only one I think would have a clear head if he comes back is Hayden. In the interview with Jeff after he was evicted he said he realized that he had to go against Derrick and Cody; before leaving the house he was against Frankie and Christine, but he had time to think and he realized Derrick and Cody betrayed him. So I think Hayden would be the best person to come back.

    I loved this site last year and returned this year. My work gets busy and I get bored with committing to watch and you do a wonderful job of recap. Take care, life changes and trials are hard but the Lord God made day and night and tomorrow dawns!

  4. Comments (332)

    I want Victoria out. This has gone on too long. I hope they put up Derrick and Victoria! But it will probably be boring Christine and Frankie.

  5. Comments (332)

    And if dumb Caleb wins HOH again, I am totally losing it that dude is awful. I am not even sure why they didn’t just send him out this week and leave Zach alone. Frankie was Stupid. But the name of the game is save your own A** and Caleb did.

  6. Comments (1092)

    Hayden would be fun to have back in. I think he would want to go after Derrick and Frankie.

    Zach might not have the gamespirit, but if he did, I would think Frankie Caleb or Derrick Cody because of the way the final twos look.

    Hope the buyback can get hoh. If not, it will be a boring week.

  7. Comments (722)

    We’re here with you SB! Take your time and do what you need to do. We’ll still be here. Youve got a lot of fans and very few dissenters..

    I enjoy your updates more than the others. Its the only one I read and post on.

    Sorry about your bad news. Youre in my prayers.

    • Comments (1446)

      I read the others for extra info, but this one is most definitely the best! It’s also the only one I post on because, for the most part, Stevebeans attracts the fans who really want to talk BB, not troll for cyber fights.
      Sending good thoughts to you and your family 🙂

  8. Comments (8)

    All the best to your family Steve. Up with the love, and down with the hate. They’ll fall by the wayside eventually.

    As for tonight’s show – it has to be Hayden on the return!! He’s the only one that could realistically get with Donny and potentially take power back over from Derrick. If it is in fact Jocasta, I may give up on this season. She probably is nice in the real world, but her awful cry & useless skills at competitions would be too much to bear.

    • Comments (722)

      Jocasta is going to have a medical dilemna or religious experience that prevent her from completing the competition.
      Lets all be real here. Shes not coming back.

  9. Comments (138)

    Jocasta is the only juror who Derrick or Frankie wouldn’t be able to control. Add to that the fact that Donny can work with her. Her only drawback is that she can’t win competitions. That’s a big drawback, but she might get lucky. You never know.

    • Comments (1446)

      If Jocasta beats Hayden, Nicole or Zach in an endurance, then surely Armageddon is upon us 😉

    • Comments (692)

      Stevebeans—- Keep on keeping on! I enjoy your blog and you have some great followers on here. My sister’s favorite saying, “that which does not kill you makes you stronger.

      As for the show……I hope Zach gets a surprise reprieve tonight due to the breaking of the rules. If not I hope he comes back in the house with a vengeance and goes after Frankie and derrick. I think he was sincere in the way he acted with frankie, he didn’t do it because of Frankie’s sister. he was doing it before the reveal. I think he is a genuinely good person, just young impulsive and yes a little out of control at times but certainly not a backstabber like some others in this game.

    • Comments (5)

      lol I think if she won the competition to come back production would throw a fit

      • Comments (1276)

        I think if she won we would need to look towards her feet (if it’s the same as last year) to make sure their wasn’t a possible Helen type situataion. I still can’t decide if Helen was pushed off, or something else happened, but it sure is suspect.

    Why is no one mentioning the renom? Frankie told Zach he was using the veto and putting him up on the block. BEFORE the veto ceremony. Unless BB changed their rules, that was not allowed before. Here’s to hoping that Zach has a little poem for Frankie and Caleb goes back on the block for what Frankie did. And the other day when twitter was going crazy with RENOM, Frankie’s sister tweeted “Frankie knows the rules of the game”. And when Zach came out of the DR the other night, he was looking in the rule book in the pantry. Hmmmm.

    • Comments (1)

      My dream would be the renom sends Cody to jury and then Hayden comes back to the house. If Donny and Hayden can talk Zach into aligning with them and Victoria comes over because of Hayden’s return, then that leaves Derrick, Frankie, Caleb and Christine. The sides would be even.

    Stevebeans, I just want to say thank you for doing what you do – your site is the first BB site I read each day. You might not have the time this year to do as many updates, but I really appreciate your breakdowns, insightfulness, and commentary. It really adds to the daily updates in the house. I started reading your blog last year during BB15 and will be back again next year for BB 17 :).

    First time poster here, long time reader, so here’s my thoughts on the house: I really hope whoever might come back tonight, actually makes a big move. Please please PLEASE don’t fall under Derrick’s spell. This house needs a shakeup to make it more entertaining. This season has been really dull. I have been a viewer since BB1. The game sure has changed over the years (perhaps I’m being nostalgic, but the earlier Big Brothers just SEEMED so much better than the BBs of today), but what really bothers me is the blatant rigging done by production. Frankie seems to think he WILL win. His ego his huge, but he seems very confident that he will win (what is production telling him?). It would be great if BB17 was a mix of all kinds of people, without any rigging done by production. Wishful thinking, I know.

    I’m going to say Donny is my favourite house guest of all time. He is almost too good of a person to be in this slimy backstabbing game, but he wants to be there, so all the power to him. I was extremely upset yesterday to read that after his talk with Christine, instead of her thinking over the 100% correct info he gave her, she went to that floater Cody and viciously badmouth Donny. Christine and Cody disgust me. I realize BB is a game, but there is absolutely no reason to be as nasty as they were to Donny yesterday. I think both are going to be in for a HUGE wakeup call when they get out of the house and realize how disliked they really are. The same goes for Frankie and Caleb as well.

  12. Comments (1)

    I really hope Zach comes back, with heads to claim >:) I don’t get why Caleb was on Zach so much about throwing challenges, Cody hasn’t done anything for their alliances. Cody actually couldn’t stand Caleb and wanted him out a few weeks ago, Caleb … Ugh I just can’t. Needs to go asap.

  13. Comments (843)

    This is going to be a long day for Donny. The other HG are mad because he dared to talk game! Now they are playing the childish ‘freeze them out’ game. No one is even acknowledging him. Hypocrites, liars, and trash!

  14. Comments (2)

    Hayden wins HOH. Puts up Derrick/Cody or Frankie/Christine. If either of them win POV, there’s always a backdoor with this cast. I can’t wait to see tonight’s episode. I hope that Hayden or Donny win HOH. Can’t really stand too much of the others.

  15. Comments (2)

    They should start reprimanding Christine for signing into the cameras. Caleb is a compulsive liar. Cody is a big baby. Frankie is…well Frankie. Derrick is conniving.

  16. Comments (2)

    Honest question here… Why does everyone hate Derrick? He is my favorite! He reminds me a lot of Dan and everyone loved Dan. He is playing a great game and isn’t that the point?

    • Comments (1276)

      Everyone didn’t love Dan. I did most of the time, just due to his Jedi Mind tricks, but TONS of people talked horribly about Dan. They questioned his morals, faith, even said he should get fired from his job due to it being a Catholic School. People were way meaner about Dan, then they are about Derrick. The meanest thing I have heard anyone say about Derrick (something that could actually be damaging) is claiming that he must be a “dirty cop” becuase of how good he is.
      Personally, like them or not, both Dan and Derrick, played or are playing great games, without getting much blood on their hands.

    • Comments (1092)

      I don’t think it is hating Derrick.

      I think we are just hoping for a change of pace. He has been in control the whole season. It would be fun to see his game crumble to pieces. See him squirm and sweat and get stressed. See his frustration boil over in a fit of red rage !

      “Damn you Frankie you backstabbing bastard !!!! You are next, Frankie. You are ought of here !”.

      All of that, just because Frankie took the last bowl of Fruitloops.

      That is how we want to see Derrick, instead of the incredibly calm master player that he is.

      • Comments (2)

        I would be upset if any one won but Derrick. He has played the best game. It would kill me if Cody or Victoria won. I want a game player winning.

  17. Comments (118)

    hey now stevebeans, when the world is running down you make the best of what’s still around, grin and bear it somehow…

  18. Comments (1)

    Did anyone see on bbad a couple days ago where cody was slathering his lady parts with lotion? Then he started touching the remote with his hands. Sick then he started. to eat at his fingernails . He is so sick with all of his gulping of snot then fondling himself and touching himself . And to Donny, America has your back. Its too bad that team America doesn’t

  19. Comments (118)

    Anyone else find it irritating that Julie hypes up the show on Thursdays and the audience is super excited too? Probably CBS employees. My hope is Hayden comes back because I feel he’ll do the most damage to Derrick’s game. Also I hope Zack on the way out vents about how he feels and lets them have it. Check out BB14 Wil Heuser’s web site:

    SB thanks for another great summer with your blogs. God bless you & your family. Tough call on who I want to return afraid they all still might drink the Derrick kool aid.

  21. Comments (644)

    This is a short video of Big Brother behind the scenes. I think it was done on season 10. It’s with Dani Reyes and Allison Grodner. It’s interesting to see all the work they put into it, and how from the production point of view, the house is like a zoo.;fs=1

  22. Comments (10)

    It’s about time … stir the pot and leave Donny alone … he’s to nice Zip I pray by God’s will Donny gets to the last 2 or is it 3 ?

  23. Comments (120)

    Nicole gave an interview where she said that she would target Christine, but she would have Derrick on the block, just to secure she would be evicted. Because of this, I don’t want her to be the one coming back into the game. Hayden seems like he would bring a lot of drama, but he would also know who his targets would be (Cody and Derrick). He seems like the best scenario (to me) to make it back into the house.

  24. Comments (722)

    3 more hours! Time cant pass fast enough today!!

  25. Comments (843)
    There is a picture here that is supposedly what the evicted jurors will be playing to get back in the game. No idea if it’s true.

  26. Comments (1799)

    Will they have the jury house compeate on there own . While the other house guest watch? Not sure if the returning HG will be safe for the first week back ? That only seems fair Than let’s watch the BombSquad do the math on the numbers game Can they finaly get Donny out of the house Or does one of them make a big move That returning HG will have a big vote Hopefully If Zach wins he dosent give Frankie another chance to backstab him Why don’t these people understand that Donny is the only person telling them the truth Hayden is also one of the people who seem to understand what the power structure is in the house Who ever goes back in watch to see who comes up with a F2 alliance for them

  27. Comments (2)

    Just wanted to take a minute to say that my thoughts and prayers are with you, stevebeans, during this difficult time. That news is always hard to cope with. Nothing but well wishes for your mom.
    As for the blog, keep up the good work.
    Personally, I hope its Nicole or Hayden who win tonight. I feel they have a higher probability to mix things up. Zack is too caught up on Frankie’s friendship and will likely fall victim to the guys a second time. Sad, but true. Either way, it should be an interesting night. I’m ready for some excitement!

  28. Comments (1276)

    I hate when they throw in what looks like just a game of luck at such a crucial time. Grrr

    They have football am gona miss bb.zach is prob gone.I want donnie to win.he needs somone to work with&all to busy kissen dericks butt.christine is a hag,&needs leave not zach.steve I love readen your prayers for you&your family.

    If Zack is so smart why is he on the outside? Derrick with the gift of gab is the smartest person in the house because he knows how to use his words. Zack was too cocky and full of himself and his judgments became cloudy.
