The Overnight Report
Good morning, BB Lovers! Happy Sunday to you!
There is hope, Team Donny. Derrick is extremely conflicted, and there's BIG game talk with him and Donny in your immediate future.. unrelated to the Team America task.
Yesterday, amid the worry over Victoria, Donny came up with what I believe is a fake Team America mission, designed to save himself. He told Derrick that their mission was to come up with their own mission, to be completed by the PoV Ceremony, and America would vote on if it was interesting enough, and he had the perfect idea: You and Frankie throw the PoV Comp to me (if you're selected to play), and/or Save Me from eviction this week. Checking the Team America Voting page on CBS, the last task is still there.. no new task.
The flaw in Donny's hail mary is that he told them the mission must be completed by the PoV Ceremony, and conclusively saving him cannot be.
After several DR visits for both Derrick and Frankie, they're still talking about what to do for the task, (which is pretty fishy, considering that for every other challenge, they've each had to get confirmation from the DR) and they're leaning towards something more creative or another saboteur thing, because they don't think they can save Donny without making it extremely obvious to the house that they're all in cahoots. Even so, the notion of somehow making the Donny Save happen is still getting tossed around by them after midnight, as we rejoin them for the Overnight Report.
Let's dive in..
Derrick, Caleb and Frankie
Reminiscing about Zach.. We join this conversation in progress.
Derrick: There's no doubt why he was selected for the show.
Frankie: No.. He was great.
Frankie: He was great. And I miss him! Even though he was such a f*ck up.
Derrick: I do too.
Frankie: I miss that little f*ck up.
Derrick: I do too.
**We do too.
Frankie: Can you imagine if the 1st competition Jocasta won for the summer was the one to get her back in the house?
Caleb: She almost did..
Frankie: And do you think she would've actually done something?
Frankie: Shuffled around, doin' nothin'.
Derrick: It would've been easier, cuz she would've gone home next week. You wouldn't have had to worry about people winning and putting you up.
Derrick: It was close.
Caleb heads outside.
Frankie: I really want to win this double evict.
Derrick: Yes, Rose. I agree. But if we don't, we work around it, ya know?
Derrick: We don't win it, we still got outs.
Nicole, Victoria and Christine
Christine is talking about the differences this season, and Nicole is responding, altering between biting her nails and biting her bottom lip.
Christine: Oh the Key thing.. Don't like that one bit.
Nicole: That saves a lot of time on the show though, how it just pops up, instead of pulling each key.. But as a viewer, I think I would like more the key pulling.. I like traditional.
Christine: That's what I'm saying. I don't like change. If I was watching the season from home, I'd be so frustrated!
Nicole: mm hmm
Christine: Positioning (the order of keys) it was a big deal! It was cool.
Victoria: And now it's just 2 pictures popping up.
Christine: Yeah, it's boring.
Nicole: What else?
Christine: The competitions.. We compared.. Frankie's played 11 competitions. Donny's played 20.
Christine: Isn't that nuts? I wouldn't like the twist, cuz it knocked girls out like that (snaps fingers)
Nicole: It did.
**actually, Christine and Amber being in the guys' alliance did that, not the twist.
Derrick and Frankie are brainstorming what to do for the Make Up Your Own (quite probably fake) Team America Challenge this week.
Derrick: So you want us all to play one of the 8 evicted HGs for 3 hours straight, and you can't break character once?
Frankie: I don't know.. That's complicated.
Derrick: Do you think that's elaborate enough? That's what I'm asking you.. Cuz we have to have people on board with doing it. It's not as easy as it seems.
Frankie: It's complicated. That's what I'm saying. It's elaborate.
They throw out more ideas.. A play.. A Broadway show.. A Saboteur thing.. Hiding things again.. Stripping the sheets off of every bed..
And then.. glimmers of hope for Donny.
Derrick: The easiest thing, we're not doing it, but the easiest thing would be to flip the vote. That's 5 grand in the bank for each of us, no problem.
Frankie: How do we do it?
Derrick: Honestly, maybe it's cocky, but if me and you wanted to do it, we could. I don't know if it would ruin our game. It very well could. They could be like, Frankie and Derrick are playin' games, on the block, one of yous goin' home. I don't think it's worth the risk.
Frankie: I just want her gone so badly.
Derrick: hehe.. I like how you say that. Thing about him is, right now he's bein' nice to us, but whenever he's safe, he's not nice to us, and that's what I have to remember. He sliced us.
Frankie: And she is most likely coming for me.. and Christine. And if I'm sitting there next to Christine, I'm ok.
Derrick: 100% ok.
Frankie: If I'm sitting there next to Caleb, I don't know what would happen.
Derrick: I'm voting for you to stay. I don't know what Cody and them would do.
Frankie: I don't know either.
Derrick: I think Victoria would vote for you to stay.
Frankie: I think those are the only 2 feasible option for her to put up.
Derrick: Well, first she has to win.. The odds are not in her favor. She's gonna be under so much pressure.
Frankie: If I'm sitting there next to you, I'll just shoot myself in the face.
Derrick: We're absolutely boned.
Frankie: It would just be the worst thing.
Frankie: Who would Donny put up?
Derrick: Honestly, I think he'd put up..
Derrick: I don't know. Probably me and Christine. But then, I don't know what that guy's thinkin'. He could put up me n you. He could.
**and very likely would..
Derrick: ..and it would be huge.
Frankie: Yeah. It really would.
Frankie and Cody
Cody: It makes it easy.
Frankie: Done. Simple. Regardless, they're putting 2 of us up. So we do.. whatever makes everyone happiest.
Derrick: Tell me what to do.
Derrick: If I flip this, he's gonna send me home. (**yup)
Less than a minute passes, and Donny enters the room.
Donny: Are you alone? ok..
After a minute of chatter about potential options for the task..
Derrick: Besides that, how're you feelin'?
Donny:Well, I'll tell you how I feel.. Last week, earlier on, you was sayin' it's lookin' pretty decent, you'd keep me posted, and I haven't heard that yet.
Derrick: It's not lookin' good for you.
Donny: It's not looking' good.
Derrick: Contrary to what you may believe, I've been pretty straight up with you about that stuff.
Donny:mm hmm And I knew you would be.
Derrick: I'm torn, man. I'm so torn.
Donny: You said it to me, America put us together for a reason.
Derrick: Oh Donny.. there's no doubt in my mind that who you are outside of this game.. There's no doubt that there's somethin' in your story or somethin' you did, or something you do, people love you, and I should love you too.
Donny:What's the big distrust that I've done to you?
Derrick: Because I know, in my heart, for whatever reason, there have been points where you've probably said my name.. and maybe you don't mean anything by it..
Donny: mm mm
Derrick: But there have been numerous people, on everything I love, that have told me.. I'll give you an example. I don't mind sayin' it.
Donny: mm hmm
Derrick: I told you that I had talked to Jocasta before she left, because you had asked me about it.
Donny: m hmm
Derrick: And right before Nicole left, she said that you had said that.. and you were the only person I had said that to.
Donny: What now?
Derrick: Remember I had said to you, and this is nothin' bad, this is me bein' straight up with you. Jocasta kinda knew she was goin, and I said to you, "yeah, I gave her a little bit of a heads up," not a blatant, I still told her I had her back..
Derrick: I didn't, obviously. And I feel guilty about that to be honest.. And Nicole, when she was campaigning (before she was evicted) said, "Donny said you had talked to Jocasta before she left, and you're playin' a good game," and generally, the reason I talk to her, cuz I know I don't have her vote.. I'd stabbed her in the back right before she walked out the door. I genuinely was just tellin' her for my own conscience. But I felt back when I heard that. Now maybe Nicole misconstrued it..
Donny: She did.
Derrick: I'm sure she did. There's no doubt in my mind she did.
Donny: Because when you even told me that you had told her, I already knowed.. cuz when she was sittin' there in her seat, she said, Donny, I'm goin home. I said, no you're not, Jocasta. And she didn't say you said it, but once you told me, I realized it.
**ahh, but he was referring to how you repeated it to Nicole, not Jocasta..
Derrick: I'm torn because I know.. Alright.. I'll just lay it out there. F*ck it.
Derrick: I want this money as bad as you do.
Donny: mm hmm
Derrick: We can both agree on that. Only 2 of us are gonna win it, any real money.
Derrick: And if I knew I was gonna get 50 grand, and somebody else would get 500, just by stickin' with him the whole time, I would do it.
Derrick: Cuz 50 grand to me's life changin'.. but I really don't know the road map to get there. And at this point in the game, 65 days in, it's wearin on me.
Derrick: ..because it's a lot of pressure,
Donny: mm hmm
Derrick: ..I'm missin' my family like crazy, and I'm doin' this a lot more than I was doin' it in the beginning. I just don't know what to do.
Donny: At this point, everyone's runnin' scenarios. I was Head of Household 1 time. I wasted it. I put Caleb up, just so he wouldn't put me up first.
Donny:That was the only thing. I've got nothin' against the boy.
Donny: I put Victoria up, cuz that's who everyone told me to put up. I wished em luck. I even coached Victoria. She didn't cry like she normally does, because I had made her feel good about it.
Derrick: Right, and she thought you were really rootin' for her.
Donny: And I was! I was! I didn't mind bein' dethroned.
Derrick: I get what you're sayin'.
Donny:It must sound too good to be true, but I really haven't done nothin' to none of em. Christine has been so scared of me, and I've never done nothin' to her..
Derrick: Nobody's mad at you. Nobody dislikes you. Everyone in this house loves you.
Donny: mm hmm
Derrick: They're scared of you.
Donny: But how so?
Derrick: Because Donny, you have more heart than anyone in this house. And you're an intelligent man. And you're a great guy. And if you're in the final 2 with somebody, and I'm not up there, I'm givin' the money to you, because you deserve it more than anybody in this house. Period.
**Donny appears to hear the subtext loud and clear, and he's momentarily crestfallen.
Derrick: So for that reason, people are scared of you, cuz you're the best guy in this house. Hands down.
Donny: You n Frankie shouldn't be scared of me..
Derrick: nononono.. I'm not sayin' me. I'm tellin' you..
Donny: why they are..
Derrick: ..what the perspective is. And has anyone ever said that to me directly? No. Cuz everyone's scared of everybody in here. Nobody trusts nobody at this point. That's my perception.
Derrick: That's my perception. Take it for what it's worth. Has anybody said that to me directly? I'd be lying to your face if I said somebody did.
Donny: mm hmm
Derrick: But that's my perception. Because when I see you compete.. as a fan of the show.. you are the Frank (Eudy) of this season.
Derrick: Hands down. You are him.
Donny: Thank you.
Derrick: It's the truth.
I'm skipping ahead about 15 minutes in the conversation. If you'd like to watch the whole thing on flashback in the live feeds, the times and cameras are always listed. We're currently at 12:52am on camera 4.
Camera 3 and 4
Donny, Frankie, Derrick
Donny: She came up with it, it's Operation Revolving Door. When someone comes back in, they go right back out. I don't think that would be hard to sell someone.
Frankie: Yeah. I don't know. I feel like this is all talk-about-able, I just don't think it should be the Team America mission, because it can't be accomplished by the Veto Meeting, so it doesn't matter. We have to do something that needs to be accomplished by the Veto Meeting. That's Monday. We can't get the votes flipped by the Veto Meeting. So it's a mute (sic) point.
**Donny set the parameters, and they're not working in his favor.
Derrick: You mean getting him to take him off the block is not gonna happen?
Derrick: I know..
Donny: Well, I mean, getting the votes would be what would have to happen, not to take me off the block.
Frankie: No, but the mission has to be accomplished by Monday.
Derrick: The mission has to be done by the veto meeting..
Donny: Well, I can say this, because I asked em.. it's a different scenario now.. all you would have to do is.. mission by Veto.
Frankie: I think it would be too strange if we started campaigning before the Veto Meeting.
Donny: Well, you wouldn't have to campaign much. You sent Nicole home first last time, you could send her home again, and then me next, and we all get 5,000 dollars.
Frankie: I just feel like it's simpler..
Derrick: I definitely want the 5k.
Donny: I definitely want it too. I mean, it's the last thing I'll get.
Derrick: If we did this right, that'll be $25,000 for each of us. It's ubbelievable.
Donny: Absolutely. It's life changing..
Derrick: I think we can agree that you going home is not a done deal.
Frankie: I agree.
Derrick: But I also agree with him that it's not plausible to make keeping you here.. If we keep you here, it's gonna be because..
Donny: It'll be several days of talkin'. It wont be one..
Derrick: And it also might be Nicole stepping on her own dick by saying something...
Derrick: It's possible. She did it last time.
Derrick: She starts runnin' around talkin' to people, throwin people under the bus.. That in itself could flip the vote. Plus, us going out proactively.. and needing to rush it for a deadline? Is not working.
Donny: I agree.
Team America agrees on the (very likely fake) mission: BB Broadway, coming to you Sunday night during TVGN time..
Derrick: Now that we've agreed on it, I hope they call me in soon, or you in soon, and we can tell them BB Broadway.
Donny: I mean, she went home before me last time.
Derrick: I know.
Camera 3 and 4
Derrick and Donny
Derrick: I'm telling you to your face, I'm not sold on sending you home. I gotta figure out not only what's good for my game, but what's good for my conscience. As sad as that sounds, cuz you're supposed to leave that at the door when you enter here, but I'm not doin' that, so... That's where I'm at. Honestly.
Donny:Well, I appreciate ya bein honest.
Derrick: That's all I can be.
Donny:My bags is gonna be packed anyway.. if it's a double eviction.
Derrick: You could stay and i could be out the door next. I know at any given time, I could go home.
Donny: But I could stay and win HoH and somebody else could be goin' home in your place..
Derrick: Right. I getcha. I gotcha. Trust me, I gotcha. And I don't think you're comin' after me. I don't.
Derrick: Because Frankly, Donny, whether you like me or not, you don't have anybody else.
Donny: I have no one.
Derrick: I know. I know. I'm callin' a spade a spade.
Derrick: There's no one in here that you can trust more than me or less than me.
Donny: There's no one you can trust more than me, also.
Derrick: Agreed. There's my cards.
Donny: mm hmm
Derrick: I don't know what else I can say. This is Big Brother. You're not supposed to do that. And that's what I'm doing. So.. It might seem like I might be in a better situation, but that's for this week.
Derrick: And unless I win HoH..
Donny: But at least you're here to fight. I'll be gone.
Derrick: I agree. I agree wholeheartedly. I think what we do is get this 5,000 dollars.
Donny: mm hm
Derrick: Because I'm not guaranteed to be here after Thursday..
**The HGs are certain there's a double eviction coming this week.
Derrick:We gotta get that money tomorrow, and then we figure out, if there's an opportunity, if there's a light, we take it. I will talk to you throughout the week. You have my word.
And this concludes the Overnight Report...
