Big Brother 16: Wednesday Morning ~ Operation Damage Control
It's wakey wakey time for the Big Brother 16 HGs, and they are in full damage control mode this morning on the live feeds. I'm working on getting enough caffeine in my blood stream to keep up with them. Damn 20-somethings. ;-p
Last night, upon hearing he wouldn't be getting his way, Devin decided he wasn't part of the alliance anymore, and he'd be taking them all out one by one. He started by informing Brittany, then Jocasta, all about the Bomb Squad. Then Devin woke Donny in the middle of the night to tell him.. If you haven't read the Overnight Report yet, I strongly encourage it. ;-) It's another super fun one, and it's about MUCH more than just that...
Frankie and Christine
Christine: Everyone knows how he strong-arms people. You can't say no. Hayden tried.
Christine: It's just not possible.
Frankie: Yup. Now at least we have the go ahead to go full speed open (at him), which is better.
Donny and Derrick
Derrick: So what's up with him now?
Donny: He said, "Donny, I gotta tell you something about something that could effect your game. They're gonna vote Pao out." Uh.. "There's an 8 person alliance." Then he was like, " I can' tell you in the mornin'." I was like, yeah yeah, please do. Then he jumped up in the bed and laid beside me. I was like, Oh lord! Someone's gonna come by here n see this.
Donny: So he started rippin' out the names.He said it was like.. It was him, Caleb, Frankie, Amber, you..
Derrick: mm hmm
Donny: Cody, Zach.. I'm not sure about the 8th, but he said he switched from Zach to Hayden.
Donny: And he said that's what's now that went against him.
Derrick: So here's the situation, what Devin doesn't know about..
Frankie joins at 10:09a
Derrick: We've kinda been on the fence about the Zach Pao situation, as far as Team America.
Donny: mm hm
Derrick: We went to Devin last night, probably around.. What time did you go up there.
Frankie: Probably like 11.. to tell him that Caleb and Zach had brokered a peace deal.
Frankie: So that most likely now Pao is going home.
Donny: Why did Devin need to know?
Derrick: Because Devin is basically tryin' to say, "Hey listen, I'm HoH this week." He came to us individually, the 8 people you mentioned, and he says, "I want him gone. If you vote this way, I will keep you safe this week, and next week you gotta keep me safe."
Donny: mm hmm
Derrick: So we all thought about it, and we were like, it's not in our best interest to keep Pao here. It's in our best interest to keep Zach. Because Pao has already proven she's not too loyal with people.. because of comp throwing and deal making..
Donny: mm hmm
Derrick: In addition to that, Zach came out and said who his target is. That's better for everybody.
Frankie: For me, when Caleb brokered the peace with Zach, I felt like it was my responsibility to go to Devin with that.. and all I did was say, "Caleb and Zach are on the same pages, so I'm pretty sure Zach has the numbers to stay."
Derrick: So he comes downstairs, and he starts pullin' Brittany, Jocasta, all the people he didn't come to to make this deal.
Derrick: Well, he didn't come to you, because you were possibly gonna go up. That's it.
Donny: mm hmm
**Derrick is so good at this. Every time he opens his mouth, I'm more and more impressed.
Frankie: What he's done is kind of forced our hands to BE an 8 person alliance to get him out.
Derrick: Ultimately, Devin's digging his own grave. Zach's a loose canon, but he isn't a threat to our games.
Thus conversation is ongoing.. but I'm playing catch up, so I've got to move forward.
Christine and Amber are outside on the Hammock deciding the best ways to deny, deny, deny, and Frankie and Derrick are still in the BeeHive with Donny, explaining away the non-Alliance Devin told him about.
Frankie., Donny and Derrick
Frankie: It's actually kind of perfect for Team America..
Derrick: We're 3 of 12, which is 1/4 of the voting. It comes out to simple numbers. $5,000 a week and power in voting. The only alliance I have in this house is this alliance. I'm a big fan of the show, you're a huge fan of the show. The biggest provilege I've had is having America voting for me.
Derrick: That's the only alliance. Any other alliance you hear about is either a deal that I'm making to keep myself safe, or.. But the only alliance I'm honoring, for both personal and financial reasons is yous two. You have my word. This is the only alliance I will honor until I'm gone. As long as we have some level of trust, we can move ahead. I don't know what his plan is, but I don't think many people are gonna buy it. He's told so many lies.. I think he's just trying to take the target off himself and put it on others.
Frankie: It's kind of a good thing.. He brought 8 people together against him.
Derrick: We gotta make sure the 8 people don't target him (Donny)..
Donny: I ain't worried about it.. HoH changes, it'll be a different 8. I'd like to give Pao my vote. She's my little best friend. We gotta make sure it wont effect the way things go down.
10:24am Frankie leaves.
Derrick: Devin's going, period. He's a loose canon. He tried to get rid of you week one. Now he's trying to do this. He's gotta go.
Donny: Don't let him know exactly how close you are to Cody and Hayden..
Donny: Out of the 3 of us, he's our loose cannon. (Frankie)
Derrick: You're gonna hear a lot today. Anything you don't feel comfortable with, come to me.
Donny: Well, I'm gonna go take a dump. When y'all get the numbers 100% down pat, I'd like to give her a vote..She's my friend.
Derrick, Christine, Frankie
Derrick: The bad thing is, if one of those girls wins HoH, she could put you and Amber up. You gotta keep saying those words... "It was a week to week alliance." But Brittany, if she continues on this path of "not gonna speak to anybody but Devin, she's gonna go home too.
Christine: She better be careful.
Derrick: They're going to talk right now..
Derrick and Amber
Derrick: Just so you know, he woke them up last night and told them every detail.
Amber: What details?
Derrick: Every member of the bomb squad, every deal, every thing. I know this because Donny just talked to me. It is what it is.
Derrick: Brittany, can I actually talk to you?
They move to the hammock.. Derrick calls on their mutual respect and parent bond..
**I have to power down for a few minutes. REALLY bad storm.. and REALLY CLOSE! Be back soon!
