This is likely going to be a pretty short recap, unless of course you’d like a weather report of my area.  The show was cruising along, showing the HoH competition that ran late into the night on Thursday, and then during a commercial break, a tornado warning pops up and cuts out everything between the HoH and the nomination.  If you’re wondering, the warnings were not for my direct county.

I will say the coverage of the HoH competition was pretty fun to watch. I am disappointed they didn’t show Caleb drinking from the gross pool of water, but they did a pretty good job editing it together.  I watched the entire competition on Thursday night, and honestly Victoria was on screen probably 50% of the time, so I didn’t even get to see a lot of Caleb doing his thing.  I heard his pep talks and all of the other calebisms (a word I created), but I never even knew where his snowman head was until about 5 minutes before he finished.

As far as the stuff between the competition and the nominations, I’m going to assume they showed Caleb nursing his knee, possibly talking to Nicole about her situation in the house, and then showed a bunch of clips making it seem like nominations could have possibly been someone other than Nicole and Christine.

I’m not trying to be cynical, but that’s basically every episode, especially when there isn’t a whole lot of content to pick from. There have been some fantastic CBS episodes this season, but I know the house was pretty dead on Friday.  They were battered, bruised and didn’t really do a whole lot.  That said, I’m sure there were a lot of funny moments with the ‘Derrick, holllllla’ going off at random times.

Sorry for the poor recap, like I said, I missed all the DR sessions and don’t really know what they showed, so I’m just going by the live feeds.  If you’d like to discuss the episode and talk about what was said during DR sessions, please feel free to do so in the comments!

    I live in your same area stevebeans & missed most of it due to tornado warnings. CBS is showing it again at 12:30am. (probably after getting a lot of complaints.)
    From comments I’ve heard on another sight, it sounds like Frankie didn’t come off looking too good this episode.

    Mango forgeting that America has seen all his backstabbing Calling Donny dead weight is an insult to us all Now we have Derrick working on Nichole’s final vote Telling her just like he told Donny Hay behind the scean I’m working hard to keep you What I don’t understand is all Caleb needs to make his plan to Backdoor Frankie is 2 votes It’s a tie as HoH he breaks it and sends Frankie out to boos

    • Comments (1446)

      You may get your wish.
      On BBAD, Caleb and Derrick are talking about back dooring Mango.

      After his comments about Victoria, he needs to go….now.

      Tired of him molesting all the guys in the house – now that Zach is gone, he’s like a dog in heat.

      • Comments (492)

        Yeah…he took advantage of Zach
        He won’t do that to Derrick or Devin or Donny
        Just young men

      • Comments (692)

        Mom, have you seen the pictures of Frankie with his hands in derricks pants?? Even derrick is letting him feel him up. Several comments have been made about it.

      • Comments (1276)

        I didn’t see that at all. I’ve seen shots of Derrick with Frankie under his arm in bed. But not anything that extreme. Derrick even said he’s going along with the vibe in the house (which is honestly Frankie can molest anyone, anytime) to try to fit in, for the “undercover” role he’s playing.
        Don’t get me wrong, there isn’t much I hate more than a Homophobe, that being said, these guys are for sure more, ummm, comfortable, than any straight guys I know. I personally prefer straight guys that are secure enough to be able to joke/flirt around with everyone the same, women or gay guys, but hands in the pants???? At some point is anyone ever going to say (in BB Production speak) “Frankie… Stop That”

      • Comments (692)

        There was a picture on either joker or the hampster site of Frankie up derricks shorts. There was a comment made on here about it a couple of blogs ago that said derrick was asking him how many times he was going to do that and Frankie replied for I have 3 left. Derek said ok.

    It seems that Caleb and Cody’s brains are growing a little because they’ve talked amongst themselves and then with Derrick that they want to evict Mango soon. But Papa Derrick keeps shutting down that idea, he doesn’t want Mango to get evicted so soon. If anyone knows please tell me when does Derrick want to get Frankie out. Maybe after Mango gets him out Derrick will say, I didn’t see that coming……..Maybe Derrick wants to be nice to Mango because his sister is famous and he could get something out of it, or maybe also because he knows he can beat him in final two, in which case his deal with Cody and Caleb is a lie. I don’t know what to think of Derrick’s strategy anymore. Why is he holding on to Mango so strongly?

    • Comments (372)

      Derrick is doing the same move as always … should we ..IDK ..what do U think… always make them think they pulled the trigger …but Derrick will be the bullet when it counts.

      …bye bye Fakie

    • Comments (426)

      I think Derrick probably really does want Frankie out, but he has to put on a show of trying to save him for TA. He’s trying to play us all.
      I don’t want Frankie to stay, but will laugh out loud if Derrick does manage to shut it down and Frankie gets him evicted. The others will take care of getting Frankie evicted.

      • Comments (487)

        TA doesn’t care anymore about Frankie. If Derrick wants to avoid guilt by association he really needs to back Caleb up and BD Frankie.

    • Comments (224)

      I think he does want Frankie out soon, but wants Nicole to go out before him since there’s still the whole paranoia about the girls ganging up on the guys to get them out.

  4. Comments (682)

    Shut Up Derrick! Let Caleb do what he wants.


  5. Comments (174)

    I do believe right now Derrick is playing it to safe with Frankie and it could come back fire on him.

    Christine was just telling Cody how she is going to come visit him and hang with his family and friends. This girl is in for a big shock when she gets out. Cody’s mom is not going to let her anywhere near Cody.

    • Comments (682)

      Frankie and Derrick have been concerned that they have not received a new TA Mission. They normally would have one by now. The website doesn’t show anything to vote on so maybe it IS over now that Donny is gone. This should be a clue to Derrick and eliminate his desire to keep Frankie.

      • Comments (832)

        I hope the TA missions are over. With the money they won from the missions they completed & Derrick’s 5k in the HOH comp, they’ve won more than their share. If they do TA again they need to tweek it quite a bit. I thought it would have been more interesting if they’d had 2 TA’s during the dual HOH’s & made TA compete against the other TA without either team knowing about the other.

    • Comments (426)

      Yes, she thinks she is going to family reunions. She is very enamoured with Cody’s work ethic and jobs. It’s just for the game my azz.

    • Comments (487)

      Does Christine really think Tim is going to happy with her ‘visiting’ Cody? Somehow I don’t think so. Unless, she is planning to divorce Tim when BB16 is over? But the real problem for Christine will be Cody’s sister.

      • Comments (644)

        We’ll see Christine and Cody cuddling and holding hands in those visits while Tim smiles sitting next to them.

  6. Comments (644)

    Derrick is being such an a-hole to Victoria right now. He shouldn’t talk to her that way. She is really blinded by him, and is so under his spell.

    • Comments (832)

      I wish she was a bit older & wiser. I think she’s beginning to see through him but she so desperately wants to be accepted she continues to fall under his spell. She’s so young & still in that phase of being too worried what people think about her.

  7. Comments (383)

    I just want to see Frankie’s face when he gets voted out. Ugh. I HATE HIS STUPID FACE!!!!

  8. Comments (266)

    I’m shocked that I am saying this but… I’m kind of turning to Team Caleb. Gasp!! After Nicole is out, rooting for beastmode. He’s kinda been on his own throughout this game without knowing it.

  9. Comments (83)

    I’m on team Caleb as well. As soon as Amber left,
    He completely changed and is really a cool guy.
    I hope team America has ended to teach Frankie and
    Derrick a lesson. Frankie hitting in drunk Cody was really
    Weird and uncomfortable to watch. I think Victoria
    And Caleb should hook up. They get on each others
    Nerves and call eachother out. Perfect couple lol !!!

  10. Comments (692)

    I want to know is caleb sleep alone tonight or is frankie weasels his way back into the HOH bed.

    • Comments (692)

      **if Caleb sleeps alone tonight or IF **

      • Comments (832)

        If Frankie has his way, we know where he’ll be!

      • Comments (692)

        In the past it seems that what Frankie wants, Frankie gets BUT maybe the mood of the house is changing.
        Have the houseguests gone to bed yet?? If so, who’s in the hoh bed??

      • Comments (843)

        Cody is sleeping in HOH room and Frankie is totally ok with it—bwahaha He is LIVID! Now if Caleb will do what his brother said and put on his ‘big boy panties’ and get that freak OUT!

      • Comments (1276)

        Yep, I’m sure Frankie didn’t mind that at all. The only thing that would make it funnier, is if Cody and Caleb had a convo saying they slept up there to get away from Frankie. Now that would have made me laugh 😉

  11. Comments (682)

    The person closest to Frankie wants to backdoor him because he doesn’t trust him. Why would you argue with him then? If Caleb doesn’t trust him the others need to see there is a reason he shouldn’t be trusted and get him out now.

  12. Comments (875)

    I am so sick and tired of the BB HG voting in the majority, with not only this season, but last season also!!!

    Why doesn’t CBS allow the HG going into the house to have two Tribes, or sides of the House, like on Survivor, but they all compete in the comps together for the HOH, then both sides get together to decides who goes on the block, & voted out. All least their would be no more “majority rules” house votes!

  13. Comments (15)

    He Stevebeans they did a whole segment on Christine’s laugh did you get to see that. Victoria told Derrick that something must be wrong with her the way she laughs at everything whether it’s funny or not

    • Comments (1092)

      That was great ! Evertime they showed Christine laughing, Vic is in earshot. The expression on her face makes you think her head will expload next time Chris laughs.

      • Comments (692)

        It was funny, wasn’t it?? The thing is I think that no matter where you are in that house you can hear her cackling. The house is not that big. Her laugh is so annoying. I feel so sorry for the folks in the jury house IF/WHEN she goes there. Maybe it will be big enough they can get away from her. However, she may not be laughing so much IF/WHEN she gets to jury and realizes how unimportant she was to the guys.

      • Comments (1092)

        Right. Just herexpression when she was 2nd nominee said it all.

        She now knows how the pecking order is falling.

    • Comments (266)

      Vic: “omg if I drop a Cheerio on the floor… She laughs!! That’s not normal.”


      • Comments (644)

        I laughed when Victoria said that about the Cheerio.
        I’m wondering if both Christine and Cody make it to the jury house will Cody change, or will he still touch her?

  14. Comments (83)

    Imagine there was big brother celebrity edition??? That would
    Be amazing!!!!!

  15. Comments (875)

    I am watching BBAD, and Mango keeps popping in, and out of the HOH Room. Frankie “knows” something is up, that’s why he keeps going into the HOH with Cody, Derrick, and Caleb. And with Caleb not even looking Mango in the eye, that’s a dead give away something is up.

  16. Comments (426)

    OMG. I just realized that Derrick is stringing Nichole along saying he is trying to save her so if Caleb does end up back-dooring Frankie he can take credit for it.

  17. Comments (15)

    I don’t understand why no one called Frankie out about being a have not only one time. seems like a small possibility Frankie may get the boot. caleb seems to be leaning that way at least now but so much can change so fast. sb, kneeless and gertibell; we had a pretty big earthquake last week but most power was back on pretty quickly. it helped that the earthquake was at 330am.

  18. Comments (426)

    Frankie’s comments to Caleb as posted on Jokers tonight:
    ‘I have a vested interest in what the world thinks of me. I have a NAME I have to uphold to.’
    ‘I cannot disrespect my name. l always think about if my actions reflect badly on my family, on my sister. I don’t have the luxury of being a total dickfuck.’
    ‘ It’s just a game but if you come off as a monster and no one wants to have anything to do with you, then it’s not worth it. People lose their jobs and livelihoods over this’.

    Is it irony, or has BB prod talked to him??????

  19. Comments (92)

    Previously on Big Brother Spoilers and more: The Blog Guests(BG’s) were very upset that their All American Hot Blooded Donny was gone. Donny who love Victoris’s clevage and wanted another performance during Frankie’s play didn’t get it (Donny was missing his woman), even the comment to Julie, Gee your pretty showed he is a hot blooded American man. The BG’s All American girl Nicole was a mess and crying louder than a 2 month old girl. Meanwhile, BG Willie was typing out his hatred for Frankie calling him names and a sociopath. But, the real hatred for Frankie begins with his belief that homosexuals are sinners. The new hero in the house is now Caleb, a man just a month ago the BG’s thought was crazy. Turns out he is an American hero who fought for our freedoms. Once the BG’s heard this, Caleb is now a BG favorite. The BG’s found out just 5 hours before last weeks eviction Frankie the H sated wanted the most beloved player in BB history to stay. The BG’s have to know this is Nicole’s last few days. The BG’s full attention is on Frankie, which is good for Cody who comes from a very loving Italian family. Will the hatred toward Cody return? Will Willie keep on being angry? Will the BG’s rush the BB house and with torches and ask for Frankies head? until next time on Big Brother Spoilers and more.

    • Comments (1276)

      No one said they “hated” Frankie because he’s a gay “sinner”. Frankie is a jerk, which is why people want him out. If you are going to go on your stupid little childish rants, at least try not to just make crap up to talk about. If you don’t like someone says, then state why. Don’t just pretend that Willie or anyone else has said stuff, just to get attention.
      What a sad little man you are.

      • Comments (17)

        Please,don’t feed the trolls..

      • Comments (1276)

        I know, I know, this guy just rubs me wrong. He just makes crap up, in the hopes that either someone new will log on and believe the crap he’s throwing out there, or just to try to attack perfectly nice people.
        I was his No. 1 target a week ago, and I’m sure I’ll be it again. I just hate watching anyone else getting their names in his gross stupid little posts.

      • Comments (198)

        I don’t even read what he has to say. I just skip right over his post.

      • Comments (692)

        Christina, if you remember he attacked you, Willie and also myself. I thing you and Willie got the worst of it. Don’t feed him, he’s not worth the time. He’s rediculous with his comments.

      • Comments (1276)

        I was so enjoying the few days of no posts from him. I just HATE seeing it when he goes after anyone, and like you said, he likes to go after you, willie and me. Honestly, the ones going after me, I find so dumb, all I can do is laugh and poke at him with longer sticks.
        It just amazes me (as well as the new troll we have on here) how people actually go onto blogs just to bother people. I would feel bad for them, I mean honestly, what kind of a sad miserable life must one lead to get their kicks being a troll? But, they are such jerks, I just can’t even feel bad for them.

  20. Comments (1799)

    Caleb is hung up on this Nichole buy back thing He holds on to how he doe sent think its fair that she is back in Caleb must get past this and realize Frankie is his biggest threat Caleb also is saying he thinks America loves Frankie and they will hate him if he evicted Frankie Nothing could be further from the truth Most of America would applaud him I bet Frankie is not too happy that Cody is sleeping with Caleb tonight Not just because he likes the chance to fondle Caleb More importantly he can whisper things in Caleb ear to keep himself safe Mango knows that Caleb’s weakness is his desire to be famous Frankie keeps stocking how he has all these contacts and could help set Caleb up If Mango talks about introducing Caleb to his sister We will know Mango is desperate and has no shame
    Derrick keeps laying out why he thinks it’s best to evict Frankie but stops and always adds he will do what the house says That way he makes it look like he Isn’t the one targeting someone Here are the 10 reasons I think we should dump this person not that I’m saying we should don’t go running to them and saying I want them out Stop covering your ass Derrick just say lets do something big and Backdoor Mango

    • Comments (1288)

      Why should Derrick risk the excellent game he is playing? I wonder if he is really distancing himself from Frankie because of Frankie’s meltdown with America? He is currently laying the groundwork with Nicole in case the backdoor Frankie plan goes through. Nicole seems primed to target Nicole and Cody, that works for Derrick, Caleb and Victoria. Nicole has done a nice job shining Christine and Cody along but she seems done with them.

      The wild card is the time between the POV ceremony and the eviction. If Caleb nominates Frankie there is no hiding the intention. Frankie will know that Derrick, Cody and Caleb all have to be behind this move. He might get traction telling Christine she is at the bottom of the pecking order – maybe it will make it through to that tiny bird brain. He might also blow up Derrick’s game with Victoria but it is hard to see her ever switching over to him. But even if she did and Christine did there is no third vote to save Frankie.

      Unless Derrick is worried about when to get Caleb out … then he might go for a double-cross. Get Frankie put on the block by Caleb, then vote out Nicole – save Frankie – and have the entire house targeting Caleb since he cannot compete for the HoH during the DE episode.

      • Comments (843)

        Why are they worried? Derrick and Cody will vote. Victoria always votes however Derrick tells her to. Vote Frankie out.

      • Comments (1276)

        they always say they are worried mouse. this has been their MO. if they aren’t sure about something, they act like they haven’t had the numbers since day one, and that way if they decide not to make the move, the hide behind, we didn’t have the votes. it’s so frustrating.

      • Comments (1092)


        They all talk great game, but they are each even better keeping a card (another idea) hidden up their sleeves.

      • Comments (1443)

        If Frankie gets put up he’s gone. They can’t afford to do anything else look what happened to Nichole for putting Frankie up!! Since he did not go it ruined her game and haydens

    Frankie:I cannot disrespect my name. l always think about if my actions reflect badly on my family, on my sister. I don’t have the – PowerofVito
    luxury of being a total dickfuck.
    This is from jokers last night.

    • Comments (1276)

      IMO, he’s saying that crap because he knows who butters his bread. If his family/sister knows that he doesn’t actually care about how his actions affect them, do you think his sister would continue to bring him around the world with her? Or continue to show loyalty to him?
      He has proven, time and again, that he cares about Frankie, above all else. But, it looks to me that he probably has been able to get away with this kind of crap his entire life. You know, piss on everyone around him and call it rain?
      The way it looks to me is he knows that as long as he puts up the front that he cares, his family will forgive all els. Don’t get me wrong, that says a lot about his family, we all should have families that love us no matter what, but it looks like he just plays them the way he tries to play everyone else.

  22. Comments (487)

    Poor Caleb. He is so stuck on evicting Nicole he is missing the bigger picture and will lose 500K. And now he thinks that America will hate him if evicts Frankie. Little does he know, unless BB Production gives him the hint, that he will become BB16’s Hero for evicting Frankie.

  23. Comments (59)

    Ugh. Hours away from getting Frankie out but they stay up for hour and hours and talk themselves out of it. If I ever play big brother, before I go in I would get a tattoo that reads “make the big move”. Or something like that to remind myself of what needs to happen in the game. If they had gotten Frankie out weeks ago…they wouldn’t have this dilemma. Put on your big boy pants, get the big target out early. Especially on a BACKDOOR where he can’t come back to get you. Jury members will probably vote for the big move maker, not the dud who “goes with the house”. Take a chance. You didn’t have 500k before going into the game so nothing changes if you come out without it.

  24. Comments (843)

    Citizens of Derrick’s hometown: Aren’t you proud that one of your police officers was laughing about a woman being raped? Would he be laughing if that was his wife or daughter? Yes, it’s a game. NO, that is not acceptable behavior. That isn’t game play. It’s vicious, disgusting, and vile.

    • Comments (26)

      Derrick is from Providence, I am from East Providence, I think he is a sergeant in CF. He did make the comment that Vic’s father would be upset. He can’t stop Frankie from being a horrible person. I would be happy to see either Derrick or Caleb win. You need to chill.

      • Comments (692)

        Derrick added his own comments and even made hip movements as if having sex. He did NOT help the situation at all, as a matter of fact he fueled the fire.

      • Comments (26)

        I saw it Franko. I think we all have by this point. And I think we all have our own opinions. I really don’t think Derrick’s behavior rose to the level of “vicious, disgusting, and vile”. That is my opinion.

  25. Comments (198)

    SB can you please post a picture of Victoria with out her extensions in. Around 6:30 am. Thanks

  26. Comments (843)

    BB is like a scripted TV show. We all know what’s going to happen. Caleb will talk and talk about making a big move, but he won’t. He will put up Victoria and Nicole will go home. We can always get Frankie out later you know. 🙁 Double eviction Thursday so Christine will more than likely go home, with Victoria the following week. There’s your final 4—Derrick, Caleb, Cody, and Frankie.

  27. Comments (492)

    Do you think Caleb doesn’t want to vote out Frankie because , Frankie told Caleb when they get out of the house he was going to take Caleb to show him all these great and famous people?

  28. Comments (492)

    How much money did Derrick win so far?
    $20,000. ?

  29. Comments (1276)

    I think Derrick really wants Frankie out, he knows that no one can actually trust Frankie. However, with the shout outs taking place, and really making it clear that most people can’t stand Frnakie, he might be taking that into account, and realizing that there is a good chance almost anyone should be able to beat Frankie in the end.
    The flip side of that is the fact that the jury doesn’t get to see what all of us see. So there is no telling how they all really feel about Frankie. They aren’t seeing how nasty he really is towards basically everone. Even Caleb, who has been very loyal to Frankie, has been on the wicked end of Frankie’s comments, saying things like Caleb is a good and loyal dog.
    If these guys have any since at all, they will pull the trigger and get out Frankie while they can. The only reason I can think of to not get him out now, is he’ll have a lot of time to try to poison the jury. He’s such a vile person, acting like America will love him, but after loosing the mission, due to his pitiful acting in his stupid play, he is in the back telling Derrick, that we are stuck with him, and we can just deal with it. That he doesn’t care what “America” thinks, and so on. And now saying all of this crap about having to always watch what he says and does so that it doesn’t reflect badly on his sister or family??????? He’s a joke, and acting like he cares how is actions effect anyone is the best “acting” I’ve seen him do.

  30. Comments (492)

    wicked… right
    Keep him in the house and away from Zach.
    Maybe some of the clips they bring to the jury house will show Frankie and his wicked side.

  31. Comments (75)

    I know wveryone hates Frankie but he isn’t going to win. I don’t get why Cody and celeb think they can beat Derrick. People need to wise up and get rid of Derrick!! It would be nice to see Frankie and Derrick leave on Thursday!!

  32. Comments (1799)

    Caleb forgets BB truth First big move wins It was Caleb when he saved Zach It’s all about the numbers You will never have the numbers like you have now to evict Frankie After this it will be just pure chance with the DE HoH game on Thur

  33. Comments (487)

    Since Zach has been in the jury house I pray that Jocasta and Hayden had a heart-to-heart talk with Zach about his friendship with Frankie and how it appears to outsiders. Yes, Zach is young, but he needs to take a good long look at how he is perceived by others. The same goes for Derrick, Cody and Caleb. I see great potential in these young men, but if they don’t get it together and give some heartfelt and genuine apologies to Nicole and Victoria because of the way they treated them and the lies they told them to their faces and things they said about them behind their backs, karma will come and bite them in their collective a$$es. It would serve Derrick right if his wife makes him wait one more week before letting return to their bed for not shutting Frankie down with those comments about Victoria and not trying to break Frankie’s hand when he reached into his pants. — JMO Thanks for letting me vent. LOL

  34. Comments (75)

    What were Derricks comments during the Victoria thing the other night? Was he the one that said the thing about making her bleed?

    • Comments (1276)

      He basically said that if he was Victoria’s dad he would have broken the computer when Frankie said what he did. But he was laughing and joking about the “gang bang” part of it.
      Honestly, when I’ve watched it back, I’m about 99% sure I heard derrick, Cody and Caleb say that it wasn’t ok, and even Cody saying that he didn’t even want to be in the room for the convo. But none of them really called Frankie out for what he said, and why it was so nasty. They were all laughing a joking… I honestly think they were trying to just ignore the “rape” part of it. But it doesn’t look great for anyone in that room.

    • Comments (453)

      That was Caleb who made that remark about blood. Derrick imitated zing bot having sex.

    • Comments (644)

      The one that talked about Victoria bleeding was Caleb.

    That was Caleb that said that but I think the minute it came out of his mouth he regreted it. I don’t think he said another word. Frankie on the other hand just doesn’t know when to stop. Deririck went too far too. PLEASE back door Skankie and save Nicole!!!!!
