BB day 15/20

Post  Banjo on 2014-07-09, 10:53

Will the new scheming save Zach over Paola ? Darned if I know.  scratch Meanwhile today will be another slow day in the house because tonight's CBS show won't be live, just action from last Saturday, so the women won't have to spend all day primping for a 'live' appearance, as tomorrow, which will prove interesting. Zach or Paola ? Which will be booted ?

'Big Brother 16' Spoilers: A New Deal Blows Up the Bomb Squad Even More

If you're not watching the Big Brother 16 live feeds this week, you're missing out on some of the best television of the year. Things are topsy-turvy and continue to shift and change on an almost hourly basis, with twists and turns, new alliances and deals and an ever-changing target. On Tuesday night, things changed yet again and this week's eviction is looking more solid. Also, the number of people who know about the Bomb Squad is now up to 13 out of 15.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 16 spoilers.

Devin won the Power of Veto. He used it to save Brittany and nominate Zach.

On Monday, all hell broke loose as Zach told Hayden about the Bomb Squad, Christine told Nicole about it, Devin tried to strong-arm Hayden into joining the Bomb Squad to replace Zach and everyone was dealing and double-dealing to figure out how to vote.

On Tuesday, it looked like Frankie was trying to work out some deal where the vote would be 7-5, possibly to keep Zach, so that he would have cover and could blame the votes on someone else. However, he and Derrick hatched a plan to avoid that. The plan was to convince Caleb to keep Zach and make it a near-unanimous vote. This seemingly began because they noticed a growing divide between Devin and Caleb, with Devin telling Frankie he doesn't trust Caleb at all anymore.

The New Deal to Save Zach

Derrick went to work, coaching Zach on what to say to Caleb and prepping Caleb on the reasons he might want to keep Zach. It keeps the targets off big players and can keep the house united in the Bomb Squad's original mission statement of getting rid of the weak players until jury.

Then came the big meeting between Zach and Caleb. Zach successfully argued that trying to keep the Bomb Squad together until jury is still possible and that tearing the house apart with a split vote this week would make people like Caleb targets. It seemed to work, and they even came to an understanding that Zach would not nominate Devin until they got to the jury. Caleb is also sticking to that deal, though they would both be fine if someone else nominated Devin.

Afterwards, Caleb talked to Paola and seemed very noncommittal, like he was trying to lay the groundwork for her possibly being evicted. Meanwhile, Zach celebrated with Frankie in the storage room that the crisis may have been averted and the vote will now be 12-0 or maybe 11-1 if Jocasta still votes Zach out.

What makes this deal more plausible is that Cody and Derrick were also there, then Caleb and Zach talked to Amber about it to get her on board, followed by Caleb and Derrick agreeing to the terms. Cody then comforted Amber about the fact that Devin can still be a target next week, something she really wants. And Caleb talked one-on-one with Frankie to confirm that keeping Zach is the plan and figure out how to break it to Devin.

Devin Exposes the Bomb Squad Even More

Frankie then had the unenviable task of informing Devin about this deal. Devin was understandably unhappy and didn't believe it at all. Devin's response was that he is no longer in the Bomb Squad and is ready to become a one-man army fueled by the love he has for his daughter, picking off the rest of the house one by one. Frankie was, for once, at a loss for words and just said he'd still have Devin's back.

Upset by this news, Devin once again woke up Donny in the middle of the night, this time to tell him all about the Bomb Squad, from its name and members to the addition of Hayden, but it was quick before Donny went back to bed. Given the fact that Donny is in Team America with two members of the Bomb Squad, this should be interesting.

He then went up to the HoH and told Brittany all about the Bomb Squad, including the fact that he told Donny. Their conversation was very long as he explained every detail. Interestingly, Devin was actually honest about the fact that Zach and Cody were the people fighting to keep Brittany when she was the original target. Brittany was most disappointed about Derrick, because she trusted him the most (though Devin defended him), and she was most surprised by Christine. Devin encouraged her to nominate Amber and Caleb if she ever wins HoH.

After a while, Jocasta joined them and Devin proceeded to tell her all about the Bomb Squad too. Jocasta stood by the fact that she's voting out Zach solely because she runs a women's ministry and he talks down to Victoria, calling her a "bitch." Later they talked about whether Christine has told Nicole about the Bomb Squad, and they all assume she hasn't (even though she has).

Once the girls left the HoH room, Brittany's horrible poker face and refusal to talk with Derrick pretty much clued him in that Devin probably spilled the beans about the Bomb Squad to Brittany and Jocasta.


At this point, Victoria and Paola are the only HGs who don't know about the Bomb Squad yet.

He's lost it. This sometimes happens to HGs when forces turn against them. At the extreme they threaten physical harm against another HG which causes them to be booted immediately by the producers eg. Russel Hantz two seasons ago. Or they may take milder action such as ripping off their mic and xmitter and throwing them in the pool, which also gets them immediately booted, eg. the woman (don't remember her name) from 3 seasons ago.

Devin Shepherd Lights Bomb Squad Fuse & Outs Alliance

How many times can the Bomb Squad alliance be out’d inside the Big Brother 16 house? Apparently a lot of times because it happened again when Devin Shepherd opened up to some of the final Houseguests to be in the dark during a late night attempt to save his game.

Last night, on the Big Brother Live Feeds, seems to have been the self-aware launch of Devin’s downhill slide. Sure, we knew he was sinking his own ship, but he remained confident he had control and was making the right moves. Frankie remedied that situation for him.

Flashback to 12:43AM BBT last night as Frankie goes to Devin to let him know Zach isn’t going anywhere. Devin asks how that happened. Frankie says Zach just has the votes to stay and explains Cody and Hayden aren’t going to vote Zach out. “Hayden told me today [that he would]!” Devin exclaimed. Devin is simply blind to any dissent or disagreement. He doesn’t understand that maybe strong arming HGs to his will won’t always work.

Devin closes his eyes and lays back letting parts of reality, not all of it, wash over him. He grasps that he’s a one man alliance now with the rest of the house against him. Even Caleb’s support is gone. Devin says the entire house will have to stop his love for his daughter. Um, okay. But he’ll pick the house off one by one.

Jump forward to 12:55AM BBT for Devin going to Donny. Here he reveals the Bomb Squad alliance to a sleepy Donny. Devin explains something “really bad just happened” and that it’d threaten everyone’s game. Well, mostly just yours, Devin. Devin tells Donny that Pao is going home.


Devin asks if it’s okay to talk to Donny about it now. Donny asks if he can wait until tomorrow. Hah! Devin says of course, but then carries right on telling him anyway. He says there’s a 9-person alliance, no wait, 8-person alliance now, he explains. (Devin just excused himself from it there.) Devin says he “bowed out” after they tried to make it a 9-person. Great plan, Devin. Donny will surely save you after what you did to him… (no, not really).

Leap again to 1:15AM BBT to find Devin telling Brittany all about his Bomb Squad alliance. He explains everything to her including who is involved and how long ago it started. Devin says he only trusts Jocasta, Donny, and Frankie at this point, but gee, he’d really like to trust her too.

Devin again uses his story that he left the alliance on his own (not that it abandoned him) but this time it’s after the group decided to keep Zach despite his “anti-woman” behavior. Devin is trying to rally girl-power to get Brittany behind him.

Devin moves on to the next Houseguest who doesn’t know about the Bomb Squad when he pulls in Jocasta (2:09AM BBT). He tells her about the alliance and how the mean, cruel other members of it are the problem here, not him turning on said alliance.

Devin also explains how he pulled in Hayden after Zach told him about the alliance and worked Hayden over to join their side. I’m not sure how Devin’s continued activities in the alliance after it was exposed is supposed to help his position, but he’s using it that way.

In a strike against his former ally, Devin tells Jocasta and Brittany that if they get the power they need to put up Caleb and Amber against one another. He’s turning on everyone. Devin even specifically calls out Derrick, Christine, and Frankie as knowing how to play the game. He’s just thrashing out at everyone.

The only people who may still not know about the Bomb Squad alliance are Victoria and Paola, but it doesn’t really matter. It hasn’t really mattered since Devin called an 8-HG meeting the other night in front of everyone and made it completely obvious.

Preparing for the fallout, the guys are planning to say it was just a one-week deal that Devin has embellished to help himself out of a bad situation. We’ll have to keep watching today and see what happens next with these wild Houseguests! What do you think of Devin’s moves?
