During Big Brother 14, Dan Gheesling had a house meeting that would go down in Big Brother history. He called it Dan’s funeral, and it was done so brilliantly, he ended up going to the finals where he really should have been the first two-time winner in Big Brother history. In Big Brother 16, we are just a few weeks in and already had our first house meeting, and this time with another guy starting with D, but not Dan.. It was Devin.


Devin – the player who is constantly referred to as ‘bi-polar’ because of how dramatically his mood shifts on an hour to hour basis – held a meeting what can best be described as Devin’s Funeral.  No, not in the sneaky, yet brilliant way to get sympathy, but in the ‘your game is over, buddy’ way.  The house, including his own alliance, has already been very dubious with Devin all year long. The way he talks to people, the way he intimidates some, flips back and forth on others, and says things then does the complete opposite.

While he may be the HoH now, the house meeting did nothing but show how completely unstable both he and his alliance is right now. Devin couldn’t even understand what Caleb and Frankie told him about throwing Caleb under the bus. The first set of nominations went under the lie “the people who fell first” and “house vote”, so when Devin revealed he had influence, that sparked quite a few lightbulbs in that room.

This recap isn’t intended to bash Devin the entire time, but it’s hard not to considering he was the focal point of the episode. CBS did a pretty good job making him look as bad as he’s looked so far this season, and it’s quite sad because he’s going to be awfully disappointed when he leaves the house to read negative reactions about his gameplay. Even simple things like basically taking over Amber’s nominations was not received well, yet I’m sure he thinks he did nothing wrong with that.

As mentioned, it was the nomination episode tonight, and Devin’s nominations were not at all a surprise. He nominated Brittany and Paola for eviction, while Amber was told to nominate Hayden and Nicole. It was not by accident that Devin got to nominate the weaker Paola while Amber nominated the smart Nicole and fierce Hayden. This was all part of the plan to have his nominees lose so he can remain in power for the week, and it worked quite well for him. Devin managed to convince Paola to throw the Battle of the Block competition, and it was actually a challenge she had a legitimate shot at competing in.

The two teams had to look at flashing images on a screen and simply reveal answers based on clues given. It was so easy, Paola had a difficult time throwing the competition without making it look very obvious. Naturally, Nicole and Hayden won and took themselves off the block which means Brittany and Paola will be the nominations until the power of veto ceremony. Brittany said it will take a miracle for her to stay in the house this week, but you’re going to want to tune in on Wednesday night or keep checking this website because that miracle may come true.

Also, a few notes from the feeds:

  • The night of the cleanup argument, production squeezed in nominations and the botb competition very early in the day because it was on the 4th of July. I assume this was to give many in production a break for the holiday, but it did a number on the houseguests.
  • When Devin and Brittany got into a little argument over the hand lotion, that was late Thursday night when the house was staying up to do the nominations. While the houseguests were all dressed up like it was a normal day, that nomination ceremony actually took place in the middle of the night, only a few hours before the botb competition.

Tune in Wed night at 8pm est for the power of veto competition and ceremony.

    Excellent recap – everything spot on – I will control my emotions and not talk about Devin this time – I truly hope Brittany is saved this week – she has come across as being genuine and nice – and the reason for her nomination was absurd – having said that I don’t have a clue right now who should go home beside the obvious – we are seeing the annual destruction of the early alliance
    I think it is excellent that my two favorite girls I slowly gathering an alliance beggining with Hayden (he is a bit “goofy”) but seems to be able hold his tongue on important issues – and besides he’s got a “4th grade crush” on Nicole and she seems abit interested back

    I hope the house votes the way they want. Devin is not te boss!!! I would prefer if Brittany were to be saved.

    Devin is a jerk!!
    I’d love to see more between Caleb and Frankie. I think maybe Caleb wants to do some “exploring”!

    I think we have seen time and time again that only 2 types of alliances work. Either an alliance that is made towards the middle of the game, or an alliance made by people who genuinely like each other. Either way, they are usually 4 people, not 8 people that come together in week 1.

    The bomb squad was made really early by guys just trying to avoid the block for the first few weeks. I think the alliance of Nicole and Hayden might go far because they will grow with the game. They have Christine and they will slowly add people here and there.

    The sad thing is that Paola will be the pawn throughout the game because she isn’t good at competitions. She will be nominated with the real target and she will be probably beat the record for the number of times of been nominated.

    At this point i really want Jocasta and Nicole out. For better or for worst, they seem to add 0 value to the show. They remind me of people going to work and just standing there waiting for their paycheck. They are slowing the game down.

      Johnny – in paragraph 2 you said the Nicole-Hayden-Christine alliance could go far — in paragraph 4 you say you would like to see Nicole out – are you just confused my friend – or have you caught the Devin virus LOL.

    Devin talks a lot. He never stops. I watch the after dark show every now and then, and I can’t get through it because of Devin’s incessant talking. Devin either overthinks or doesn’t think.

    Right now Christine seems to be in a good position because she is in two alliances. Also, I like Derek. He seems smart. He says just enough.

    I like Amber because she seems to have the ability to win comps and make friends with all of the people in the house.

    They call Jocasta a floater, but on After Dark she has developed a friendship with Amber, Frankie, Victoria, and Pao Pao. Is the definition of a floater someone who is not in an alliance? I thought it was someone who literally floated by either under the radar or from group to group.

    Hayden, Brittany and Cody are blah to me.

    The have not room is cruel!

    Typos schmypos – we all make them – so we can all overlook them – the content is what’s important

    Anyone notice the Team America is now Donny, Frankie and Cody. Am I wrong?

    I beg of the house guests: please send Devin home…immediately.

    Damn! On Sunday nights show I thought Britt looked amazing! Smoking hot MILF!!! On a scale from 1-10 she is “borderline 11” (compliments to Joe Pesci in “Gone Fishing”)

    • Comments (343)

      Ya, but she’s only 29! Had her kids a few years ago on top of that. It isn’t that uncommon to look like that at 29 if you were hot before your kids.

    This is rather off topic but can someone please change Dan’s bio from the unnecessary hatred that is in it now?

  11. Comments (343)

    Yes Devin does seem a bit crazy, and is an erratic game player, but he’s not a bad guy. Just kind of jerky, as are most (sorry) that get called to play BB! It takes a certain personality type to actually want to put yourself through this. A mix of ego, “wannabe,” and fame lust. So, while he is not great at BB and a bit jerky, HE IS NOT LIKE THE JERKS WE SAW LAST SEASON (or Evil Dick), who spew racist stereotypes around, and a few who really were High School type bullies. This being “scared” of him seems stupid — why, just because he’s big and all over the place?! So, while I don’t care for Devin, he isn’t the bad guy that some paint him. Actually, in BB he is atleast one who has made this season not boring!

    I really don’t believe Paola threw that BOTB competition, I think she is just not good at competitions. The fact that she even thought about it blows my mind. Never stay on the block if you can avoid it. I am waiting for these women to wise up, start strategizing and really playing.

    You are right Dan. I meant to say Derrick. I had assumed the new Team America is was big news when I saw it. I wondered why it took so long to be mentioned?
