Big Brother 16: Caleb Plants a Save Zach Seed and it grows and Grows and GROWS!
The live feeds were down for a couple hours in the early evening as the HGs celebrated their Half Way party. Ordinarily, that's a pretty big deal. Tonight, not so much.. Not so much at all.
At 9:02pm, Caleb planted a Save Zach seed, and over the next couple hours it grew to immense proportions, a la Jack and the beanstalk. And it's a beautiful, beautiful beanstalk!☺ Caleb, I promise to not make fun of you for at least.. 12 hours. Maybe even 24. Derrick and Cody.. you already know how I feel about you. ♥ Read on, dishers.. Read on..
Or just use the time stamps and the camera numbers provided to watch for yourself on flashback. It doesn't get any better or any more Big Brother than this! If you haven't gotten the feeds and you'd like to check em out, here's the 2 day free trial.
Caleb, Frankie.. then Derrick
Caleb: I been thinkin'.. If we get rid of Zach, our numbers are gone, they still have a number, and they can go against us.
Frankie: I'll grab Derrick.
Frankie brings Derrick into the room.
Caleb: What if we go Zach, Christine flips, they have more numbers than we have, and then we could be in trouble.
Frankie: I said I don't think that's a concern, but he's worried she wouldn't vote Nicole out.
Caleb: I think she has Nicole's back over any of us. I feel it.
Derrick: Lemme shave and think about it. So you're sayin' Keep Zach..
Caleb: I'm not sayin.. I'm sayin' what if... Remember, we supposedly have his number.
Caleb: But.. none of us really have Jocasta's number.
Derrick: Right.. and if he goes home, is she gonna vote with Donny, if Donny's workin..
Caleb: Exactly. So the thing is, it'd be Christine, Donny, Jocasta, Victoria.. I think Victoria would vote with you, but..
Derrick: Yeah, she would..
Caleb: But.. What if Christine says, Hey, I'ma tell you guys everything..
Derrick: That would only work if one of us didn't win HoH. But I get what you're saying. But if we vote out Jocasta, they're gonna know.. They're gonna know that something's together.. And if they win, they're gonna put 2 of us up together, and one of us take ourselves off, they'll put another one of us up.
Caleb: Even if we vote to keep Jocasta, Jocasta's not a number for us.
Derrick: I agree.
Caleb: Either way. She's gonna put you up.
Derrick: Cuz I put her up.
Caleb: Exactly. And then more 'n likely, Nicole's gonna say, Hey, I already know about their little scheme, I know about it all. Put Derrick up, or Frankie, Caleb..
Derrick: It's possible. It's possible. We're not the only ones who are working as a group. There's another group workin'. That's Big Brother.
Caleb: I guess the biggest question is, do you think.. if we voted Zach to go home, Christine would play on that side of the fence to help their numbers?
Derrick: I don't think so.. but anything's possible.. I could flip.. anybody could flip.. People are gonna do what's good for their game.
Derrick goes to shave. Frankie's tells Caleb he's not worried and Zach it too erratic and he's talking about all of them and even trying to form a group to get Caleb out.. Caleb hears all this and still comes back with..
Caleb: At the end of the day, Jocasta's not with any of us.
Frankie: Yeah, but she also doesn't do anything
Caleb: That's true too, BUT she's a number against us.. no matter what.
**Caleb, I could kiss you!
OK.. the seed has been planted.. We're moving ahead, so we can watch it take root..

Derrick and Cody
Derrick: Frankie called me in here. Caleb's havin' doubts about votin' Zach out, and he's 100% right, if he knew everything, because he's like, listen, you don't realize, if we send Zach home, they do have the numbers.
Derrick: ..if Christine is workin' with them. And he's right. He's definitely right. But I was just like, I gotta shave first. What were you gonna say to me?
Cody: I was gonna say, do you think that Frankie's actually telling Zach?
Derrick: No, I don't. Not at all. 100% not tellin' him.
Cody: I mean, do you think Frankie's tellin' Caleb?
Derrick: Oh, I meant to tell you.. We told him last night at the pool table and included you 100% in it.
Derrick: Lemme ask you a question. I've thought about this all day today. Me n you have 2 options in this game.. There are 3 twosomes in this game right now - Me n you, Nicole and Hayden, and Christine and Frankie. OK?
Derrick: If we get Zach out, and then we vote Christine out, do the math, we're f*cked... if we don't win HoH, because Nicole and Hayden will have Donny and Jocasta. Christine and Frankie don't have anybody, even though they think they have Nicole and Hayden. We know they don't. So if we went against them, they don't have anybody.. So votin' out Christine is not a good move, because she doesn't have enough numbers to vote us out, if she puts us up, even though she thinks she does.
Cody: She does though.
Derrick: She doesn't.
Cody: She does.
**Duck, duck duck duck..Goose!
Cody: Because, I don't think Nicole and Hayden are workin' together with her.. They're playin' everybody.. Nicole and Hayden are playin' everybody. If Christine puts us up on the block, Nicole and Hayden are gonna be like stay loyal to them..
Derrick: I agree.
Cody: Nicole and Hayden are playin' everybody.
**Hmm.. sounds like a fab reason to keep Zach. So glad you guys figured this out tonight, and not too late..
Derrick: So lemme ask you this then.. We have 2 options: we go with the flow, we vote Zach out, and then we vote out.. cuz he wants me to put up Frank and Christine, if I win HoH.. That's what Hayden wants me to put up. And he told me today.. I didn't ask him about it, but he told me today that Donny said I was good and I'm not even on his radar.
Cody: He told me that yesterday. His targets are Caleb 1, Frankie 2, Christine 3..
Derrick: You 4.
Derrick: He didn't even say me 4.
Cody: Ok, so he lied to you about that.
Derrick: Oh he's playing us.
Cody: He's tryin' to play both of us now.
**the "he" is question is Hayden, in case that wasn't completely clear.
OK.. This conversation is ongoing, but you get the gist. Beautiful bells and whistles are going off like firecrackers in Derrick and Cody's heads.. We're moving forward!
Derrick speaks directly to the feeds.
**talk to me, baby! I've been waiting for this all week!
Derrick: I can't get 2 f*ckin' minutes with Cody alone, because Frankie's paranoid and Christine's paranoid. We gotta make a move tonight, feedsters. I have to talk to him. About to stir this up, if he's game, cuz.. I'm not gettin' played. Goin' in this game.. Doin' the dirty work of someone else..

Cody and Derrick
Derrick: I was with Nicole upstairs, and she goes, "are you and Cody flippin', cuz Frankie seems like he's flippin'. Zach has to go this week! He has to go this week!" Why does he have to go, Nicole? He's not puttin' me an' Cody on the block.
Cody: You know what I just said to Christine? I said, "You really don't see that the numbers are goin'? 3 out of the 4 weeks, someone from the original 8."
Derrick: I know..
Cody: "If we get rid of Jocasta.."
Derrick: They're down.
Cody: I literally just said to Christine, 3 out of the last 4 weeks, one of the original 8 are going home every week. She was like, Oh my God.. I didn't realize that. I was like, Don't act like you haven't realized that, Christine. She was like, I really haven't.
Derrick: He told me, he wants me to put up Frankie and Christine next. We're gonna have nobody left. We're gonna go up next to each other. Donny and Jocasta are gonna vote us out, and we're gonna go home. We're gonna be finishing 5th or 4th place.
Cody: That's not gonna happen.
Derrick: I'd rather go home makin' a big move and sayin' beat me.. just beat me..
Cody: I couldn't look at her in the face.. She literally goes, "Ask Nicole how much I love you." And I wanted to be like, Really?
Derrick: Nicole wants to send you (Christine) home.
Cody: I was like, do you want me to ask how much, because she's been tellin' you all week how she wants me as a replacement nom,,
Derrick: And she wants to send you home..
Cody: But here's the thing, Christine goes, "Ask Nicole how much I love you." Do you think..
Derrick: Nicole's playin' us..
Cody: Nicole's playin' us?
Derrick: Yes! Yes!
Cody: Do you think she's feeding us shit that Christine isn't saying?
Derrick: Yes! They need us to vote them out. Listen, they're on the outside right now. Whether you realize it or not, we have the numbers right now. If we stay loyal to each other... Frankie, Christine, you, me and Zach, they can't beat us.
Cody: And Caleb..
Derrick: And Caleb. We have the numbers. Unless they put both of us on the block, they can't vote us.. We have the numbers, and we're literally cannibalizing ourselves.
Cody: I literally just said this.
Derrick: So we're gonna even out the numbers FOR them. We're lookin' like f*ckin' fools.
Cody: OK.. SO you want us to keep Zach?
Derrick: I think we should.
Cody: You wanna do some big time shit?
Derrick: I think we should. And if we go home, we f'in go home.
Cody: We'll call a f'in meeting.
Derrick: yup. Hey, if we go home..
Cody: F*ck it.
Derrick: I'm goin out guns blazin'.
Cody: But here's the thing.. We need to realize Zach's f'in us.
Derrick: But he's not. He's playing both sides, but if he wins HoH tomorrow, he's puttin' Nicole and Hayden up.
Cody: OK.. I'm gonna tell Frankie and Christine that we need to talk.
Derrick: We definitely need to talk.
Have Not Room

Cody and Christine
Cody is filling Christine in on all the inconsistencies and doubts created by Nicole and Hayden, lastly that Christine and Frankie were trying to save Zach, and Frankie enters the room...
Cody: Me n Derrick need to talk to you and her. I think you 2 guys, and I think me and Derrick are getting played by Nicole and Hayden.
Christine: Frankie, we are getting played so hard by them right now. They said that you and I wanted..
Cody: Ok.. it wasn't just Zach that said it.
Cody: I guessss... I was targeting you, because Nicole kept saying all week that I'm your number one target and you're going after me in the double evict.
Frankie: Going after you?
Cody: yeah. And she told us that you went up there to them, not with an alliance, but with a "working together" unnamed group of you, her, Donny and Hayden.. and they said all week, you guys have been trying to get us put up as Renoms..
Christine: This is unbelievable.. They're brilliant. They're brilliant.
Cody: ..that you kept goin' up there sayin' that I needed to be a replacement, and that it's gotta be me or Derrick, and saying that me or Derrick had to go up, or else Zach's not gonna go home.
Frankie: Alright.. So Zach's staying?
Cody: It's not up to me.. but if we vote Zach out, it'll make it seem like we appeased them.. If we vote Zach out, we're actually playing right into their hands, so..
Frankie: So Zach is staying? Zach is staying?
*** #ZankieLove written all over his face. Frankie is not a hard sell on this one at all.
Cody: That's what..
Frankie: 1, 2, 3, 4, Caleb's 5.. Zach can stay. Let's do it.
Cody: They were trying to make it out that you were trying to play us or we were trying to play you...
Frankie: (Thought Bubble: Your lips keep moving, beautiful boy, but all I hear is Zach's staying!)
Camera 1 and 2
Cody is telling Christine what a mastermind Donny is, and how he tried to manipulate him into putting Caleb up when he was HoH. Christine agrees Donny is brilliant.
Frankie: I told Caleb.. (what?) We're keeping Zach!
Fresh from the DR, Derrick enters the Have Not Room..
Cody: I pretty much.. I told em.
Derrick: That's ok. BB Confessional! This is the f'in BB Confessional!
Derrick: I'm f'in in there f'in rantin'
Derrick: What did you tell them so far?
Cody: Well, I told them everything, pretty much.
Derrick: Are we done playing the games, seriously?
Derrick: Ok. Good. Because they're trying to pick us off one by one.
Frankie: They are! And they're doing a good job.
Derrick: ok. They told us everything you guys said.
Christine: We didn't say it!
Christine: That's what's f'd up.
Derrick: (to Christine) Nicole told us right out that you wanted us out. (to Frankie) They're playin'.
Derrick: It doesn't even matter. It doesn't even matter.
Derrick: We're gonna keep Zach.
**And the Angels Sing....
Derrick: We're gonna keep the numbers, and they're gonna know, and if we don't win HoH, one of us is goin' home, period. So we gotta win or lose, but you know what? We ain't f*ckin' pawns, period. Hayden wouldn't even discuss putting Donny up. (to Christine) They wanted to put you up. (to Frankie) They wanted to backdoor you. That's why. Dude. We got it. Dude. (to Frankie) By the way, you're welcome, cuz we're the reason you didn't go on the block. Me n him. I know you're tight, but listen: They're. Playing. Us. We send Zach home this week. Then they wanna send you home or you home next week. Now we don't have the numbers, and then we're gonna go home too.
Camera 3 and 4
Derrick, Frankie and Cody discuss the best way to bring Victoria on board and make sure they have her vote to keep Zach.. They decide to tell her Hayden said he would put her up..
Derrick: We basically gotta do what Nicole tried to do with us...
Cody: Just lie to her? Alright. You drop the lie to her. I'll f'in do it too.
Derrick: Do you think it'll work? If you don't think it'll work..
Frankie: Do you think there's any advantage to going up to Hayden and Nicole and just being like, "Sorry, we're voting to keep Zach."
Cody: I don't think that's a good idea.
Derrick: Dude, we could..
Cody: It's either gonna be 5-3 or 6-2. If it's 6-2, it looks better, but if it's 5-3, Victoria's gonna.. This is my thing...
Cody: Victoria's trust is not with you and it's not with Hayden.
They toy with the idea of giving Nicole a heads up.. and how to go about that..
Derrick: If we don't tell em, the line's drawn, we lied to their faces, but if we tell em, "Hey, Listen, we're gonna keep Zach this week. He's a huge target. He's a bigger target than all of us.."
Cody: He's a bigger target than Jocasta..
Derrick: That way, Zach is here, and if any of us go on the block, we have a larger target next to us.
Cody: But then, Hayden's gonna be like, "You just told me yesterday that Zach said he's gonna come after me. Why would you keep him?"
Frankie: Cuz he says that about everyone.
Derrick: Just say, I know I have the votes against Zach.. if he tries to put me out.
Cody: I'd rather have someone like Zach sitting next to me than someone like Jocasta.
Derrick: Exactly. And.. they're not gonna buy it. Let's be honest. They're not gonna buy it, but it's a little bit.. We're still f*cking him.
Derrick: ..but we're putting lube on.
They debate this a few minutes more, decide it's better to tell Nicole and Hayden tomorrow.. then get back to blindside...
Cody: I f*ckin' love blindsides. Look up blindsides.. It's f'in trending. Hashtag Blindsides. #Blindsides
Derrick: Here's the thing, if I don't get Victoria's vote, what if Christine flipped? It'd be 4-4.
Derrick: Nicole would vote Zach out, and we'd be exposed.
Cody: No way, No Chance.
Frankie: I agree with you that there's no chance, but let's not take it.
Cody: So we blindside em?
Derrick: Are we still gonna try and get Victoria?
Derrick: And what do we say to her?
Frankie: I think literally right before the vote, after the 2nd lockdown, you grab her and say, listen, the majority is voting to keep Zach, and then I'll say the same thing, and you (turns to Cody) say the same thing. And then if she goes to Hayden, at that point, who f'in cares?
Derrick: I think that's bad. I still think I should say "they're gonna put you and Jocasta up if they win double evict. I don't want you up there. We need to keep Zach here, because if you're up next to Jocasta, you could go home."
Frankie: Or you can say, Zach's targets are Nicole and Hayden..
Cody: And Zach's gonna go home if he sits next to you anytime.
Derrick: yeah. Perfect, Perfect..
Cody: I think if it comes from you, she (Victoria) may not even go to Hayden. I think you're her number 1, Hayden's her number 2.
Derrick: I hope so. We're gonna find out tomorrow. The last week he's gotten close with her, because he knew this was coming.
Cody: I say we roll with it tomorrow. We get Victoria - 6 to 2, if not 5-3, we drew the line. F*ck it. At least you f'in told Victoria so she doesn't have a lack of trust in YOU. Same with us.. We put the trust in her to f'in tell her, cuz we don't want her to be blindsided either. If she doesn't trust us, then fk it, who cares..
Derrick: If she votes the other way still, she'll be the 1st one gone, after we get rid of them.
Cody: Yeah, exactly.
Derrick: And the best part is, by keeping Zach, we're already getting rid of another one of their numbers.
Frankie: Exactly. Why is Caleb the smartest?
Cody: F*ck that.
Frankie: Wanna know why? Cuz he's stupid. He sees only black and white.
Frankie: He's like (points) "You, good. You, bad."
Derrick: But that leaves them only Nicole, Hayden and Donny.
Cody: If they f'in beat us, then I'm gonna punch myself in the dick...
They wrap it up.. Frankie plans to go out and entertain for a bit, lighten the mood, get them laughing.. Derrick leaves first.. Frankie and Cody linger behind..
Frankie: You didn't cuddle with me this morning.. I knew something was wrong.
Frankie: This is exciting!
Cody: I know! It's so exciting! This game is so crazy.. I can't wait.. I just love the blindsides.. I just wanna see Nicole's face, cuz I hate that she was tryin' to f'in play us.
Frankie: That's unbelievable.
Cody: It pisses me off. And Hayden, too.
Frankie: What an idiot.
Cody: Know what I was thinking?
Frankie: No one anticipated our bond.
Frankie: I don't think anyone anticipated our bond.. not even Zach.
Cody: No, I don't think anyone realized.. And that's the thing..
Frankie: We don't wanna hate each other. It's in our genetic code.
Cody: Like, I can go out and I can be fake to Brittany, Hayden, Nicole, but with you, I was like, this motherf'er, that motherf'er..
Frankie: I love you, too. And you know that this is real.
Cody: I know.
Frankie: I've never been happier in my life.
Cody: C'mere you motherf'er..
Frankie: The whole day I've been so sad..
Cody: He's gonna be so happy to stay tomorrow.. I said so much shit to him in the goodby message.. I was like, you f'in mother f'er..
Frankie: me too.. I cried. No, I didn't. I tried to cry..
Frankie: oh oh oh.. My goodbye message to Jocasta is perfect.
Cody: What'd you say?
Frankie: Like, if it's jury, she's gonna be like "aw that sweet kid.."
Cody: Oooh right!
Frankie: Mine was so sweet.
Cody: I told her... I said.. "I feel like you're not even playing the game." F*ck.
Cody: Oh, I love you..
Frankie gets out of bed and walks back and forth, back and forth in the room..
Cody: What're you doing?
Frankie: Jocasta. This is what she's been doing for 47 days.
Cody: Yeah.. Exactly..
Frankie: I knew we could fix it.. be like (pounds Cody's chest) bad boy! Bad boy!
Cody: (imitates Zach) I know.. I was just tryin' to play the game. Are you guys mad at me?
Frankie: We're gonna enforce a buddy system with him. He's never allowed to speak to anyone alone.
This is ongoing, and sweet and silly.. and so nice to see them smiling again.. and so nice to BE smiling again. If you love the Frody love, check this out on flashback starting at 11:47pm.
And this is a wrap on this post. ☺ They do fill Zach in after midnight, inasmuch as they tell him that Hayden and Nicole were targeting him hard and they will be blindsided tomorrow.. As of bedtime, the plan to keep Zach stands.
It was a truly fantastic night on the feeds.
If you decide you've just got to see this all for yourself, here's a 2 day free trial of the live feeds. It doesn't get any better or any more BB than this!
