The Overnight Report - HoH Reveal & Probable Noms
Good morning, BB Lovers! Happy Friday to you! If you missed out on last night, here are the 3 previous posts to get you up to speed a bit: Beastmode in the HizHouse!, Endurance Comp Coverage, Live Show Viewing Party.
In a nutshell, Donny was evicted, Caleb won the HoH, and Derrick took the 5 grand and the Hollas for the rest of the Summer.
I'm starting this Overnight Report with the HoH Conversations that are happening right now at 3:23am BBT.. I'll be filling in the blanks on the HoH Reveal and a couple of other pertinent conversations as soon as we get confirmation on who the nominees are going to be.. And during the 3:55am conversation with Derrick, Caleb and Frankie transcribed below, we just did.. The Nominees will be Nicole and Christine. So it's fill in the blanks time.
Derrick and Victoria
Victoria: (whispers) Is Caleb putting me up?
Derrick: Not if I have my way.
Victoria: Who would he put up against Nicole?
Derrick: Christine. Just don't say nothin'. I mean, I don't know if it's her. That's who I'm thinkin'.
Victoria: mm hmm
Caleb's HoH Reveal
You have to watch this on flashback. It's the slowest ascent up the HoH stairs ever.. As Caleb says..
Caleb: We're all hobblin'!
Frankie: (Can't resist ribbing) Oh Cody, poor Cody.. Can you make it up ok?
Caleb: I was about to say, wait a minute, where's Donny?
Caleb: Ya'll ready? (he opens the door) My beautiful mom! Oh my goodness!
Caleb: Alright, check this out, I'm gonna givbe you guys a little insight on what these mean.
Frankie: Yes, please.
Caleb: Alright.. This flag right here.. Basically, what they do when you're deployed is they have a memorial. We were the last infantry unit to leave Baghdad, so they took flags of each of us that was there, and they flew em in the soil of Baghdad.
Caleb: Now this guy here.. this is my heart.. it means a lot to me. Very select few people get these. It's a blue cord. It's an infantry cord. Basically means, you're the front dude. When you wear this, people know that you mean business.
Making it even more special, Caleb requested his father, who is retired Special Forces, present it and put it on him..
Caleb: So I was standing there in formation, and he walks up, and puts it on me, and he was like, "Good job, son." And it goes right here, and it clips in your Class A's.
Caleb: So that's what this is. Not everyone gets em. These are awesome to me. I'm amazed they sent my hat. Specialist Reynolds. Letter?
Caleb: Alright everybody... My Bruh..
VOICE: Can I get a Holla?!
Caleb:My brother Blake wrote this one..
Dear Caleb,All: hehehe
For starters, just know we love you, bro. We're proud of you for all that you've accomplished. If there were going to be a Reynolds on tv first for something good, it would be you. Keep your head in this game. Don't get sidetracked by ANYTHING. At the end of these 90 days, you will either be 500,000 dollars richer, or you will leave with a few new friends. Either one is great, but you have plenty of friends.
So focus on your mission to win. Keep your eye on the prize, bro. We love you and we want you to hang in there. Put your man pants on. Keep tough. ~Blake
Cody: That was awesome.
Frankie: That was great.
Caleb: My bro. I got to see his face in a video AND got a letter from him.
Derrick: Alright, so what's behind "Gippy"?
**it's on the hat.
Caleb: Gippy was a guy I was deployed with. He got hurt... Just one of my battle buddies that I was real close to.
To watch the rest of the HoH Reveal, go to 1:42am on the quad, and go full screen. :) To watch from the beginning, start at 1:32am...
Nicole and Caleb
Nicole: I want to have a serious convo with you.. to talk about our games in the future. Coming back in the house, you see a lot more than when I was in here. Straight up, you've never done anything to me, I've never done anything to you.. Do I threaten you in this game?
Caleb: Yeah, you do. You're definitely a comp beast. Donny was too.
Nicole: If I were to have won today, there was no way I was putting you up. I'm totally alone.. When you think about pairs.. I can be as loyal to you as I was to Hayden, because I don't have anybody.. I could promise you, and swear on anything that I would never put you up, and never vote you out. I would love to sit next to you in the final 2.
Caleb: There's definitely 2 people here who wouldn't promise me that.. and I think you know who those 2 people are.
Nicole: I will never put you up as a nom or a replacement nom.. I am very loyal. We are both very trustworthy people. We have the same background.. Just something for you to think about.
Caleb: I will keep it on my mind, for sure. I don't think you were gonna put you up..
Nicole: If you are scared about me putting up Frankie, I'll promise that too. If Cody had won, who would he put up? Not Christine and not Derrick.. Who does that leave?
Caleb: Tomorrow is a tough decision.. (fishies)
Nicole: If I promised you, you could tear me apart.. (fishies)
Caleb: If you didn't win, you would go up.
Nicole: I think it's gonna be the Before After comp. I've been studying.. And if that's the case, I just want you to think about your game, and not take out someone that would work with you.. I would work with you, not against you. I hope you'll think about that. I've watched this game since I was 8 years old. THis is when you've got to make big moves. I haven't offered this to anyone else, since Hayden.. You are a man of your word, Caleb.
Caleb: I am.
Nicole: I am so committed, I would fight for you 100%. You need people working with you, not against you. That's what I can promise you, and I hope you'll consider it. It is a big thing not to put you up on the block.
Caleb: That is a big thing. I gotta think about it, and there's not much time.
Nicole: I feel like I'm one of the smallest targets in the house, and I keep going up.
Caleb: You are not a small target.. That's why you're up.. That's why you've gone up..
Nicole: I've been stabbed in the back by people in this house.. Frankie's one who hasn't stabbed me as much as others..
Caleb: Who else stabbed you? Derrick?
Nicole: And Cody..
Caleb: And we know Christine did.. When y'all left, Donny was all, I'm all alone in this house, and I've always been alone.. We're like, no you haven't. Your people just got voted out, so now you're alone..
Frankie comes out of the bathroom.. He offers to grab anything for them.. Aleve and Advil are requested.
Caleb: Whatever one of the guys are up, tell em to come up in like 5 minutes..
Nicole: All I'm asking for is 1 week of safety, and I will never put you up. I just want to know what you're worried about..
Caleb: I'm not worried.. You put me up, I put you up. My thing is, I know, unless you're really good, unless you win HoH and PoV and HoH and PoV.. you're not gonna make it in this game.. You're too big a target.
Nicole: I've heard people say I'm not such a big target..
Caleb: You have PoV to play in, win it you're safe.. Next HoH, win it you're safe..
Nicole: That' not something that's supposed to be used against me.. It's not my fault I won the comp and got back in. I understand the first time.. But If I keep getting thrown back up there..
Nicole continues pleading her case to Caleb, but he's such a company man at this point, it doesn't look like she's getting through..
Caleb: I honestly want to know what Christine's thinking most.. We all know you're good at this game.
Nicole: I'm not that good. I lost the last 3 comps.
Caleb: This next one might be your niche. The thing is, I'm really trying to figure that girl out.
Nicole: I think she's protected by a lot of people in this house.
Caleb: She's protected by no one in this house. At the end of the day, I gotta do what's best for Caleb.
Nicole: Everyone's gonna want you to put me up, because they know I could possibly work with you. If someone is promising you never to put you up, why would you even think about putting them up? What if I won the double eviction, you would never have to sweat..
Caleb: I would never have to sweat regardless. My game is mine. I ask other people what they think but I grew up a long time ago.
Nicole: Do you really think the person who backstabbed me, that I would want to help her?
Caleb: That's what I've been trying to figure out since you got back. It's just tough. It's a lot of thinking.. You're not a huge target of mine, but you're a target..
Nicole: But if I'm promising to work with you, I shouldn't even be on your radar..
Caleb: The only thing I can do is think about it.. ponder on it.. I want you to know, to me, what happened in the past is over..
Derrick pops in.. Nicole asks for one more minute..
Nicole: From one country-folk to another, I would love if you would take into consideration.. I've thought long and hard about what I would do coming back into this game.. If I had won HoH, I would have called you up and had this conversation. I'm so tired of being so honest and getting literally beat for it in this game. I just want it to pay off once.
Caleb: I do want you to know that I'm taking into consideration what you said..
Asked, Nicole goes into great detail about Christine not telling her about using the slushy..
Nicole: Why would I ever want to help her? If that can stay between you and I, I would appreciate it.. I'm willing to be the most loyal person you've had in this game. Please think about it.
Nicole leaves.. Derrick comes in.. And we know immediately that Caleb will not be considering a word she said..
Caleb: She was buggin' me.
Derrick: What'd she say?
Caleb: Just about Christine and the slushy thing..
Derrick: Well, that's perfect for you.
Caleb: She said so much..
Derrick: Throwin' people under the bus?
Frankie returns to hoh..
Frankie: How was that?
Caleb: That? Oh my gosh. Literally death. Basically death to my ears.. She's like, If I win HoH, I'm not putting you or Frankie up, so I'm thinkin', ok, so you're gonna put the rest of my squad up? Ain't happenin'.
Derrick: And honestly, once she wins HoH, she's gonna say, "There's 2 weeks left. Go f*ck yourself."
Frankie: Literally, before the HoH comp, I pulled her aside, and said, I hear that I'm going up as your target.. and she was like, I can't tell you you're not going up as my target.. She loses HoH, pulls me into a room, and says, I just want you to know, you're not my target.
Derrick: Right, because Caleb won.
Caleb: She said, "Country girl to country boy.. just hear me out.. I'm not a beast in this game.. I've won 3 comps.. I will give you the same bla bla bla as Hayden.." The funny part is, she said who do you think is gonna win the Before and After Comp next week? I know everything, I've been studying, Im gonna win it."
Frankie: mm hmm. We have to study all week.
Derrick: We have to start bein' more blatantly obvious and just start studyin' in here all week.
Caleb: Not in front of Christine. Nicole told me that Christine's been wanting to work with her since she got back into the house.. I told her I had a feelin'. She said a lot of stuff. "Listen to your brother's letter. You need to do what's best for your game.. I'm the only one in this house who wants you to be here."
Frankie: 1, 2, 3 sitting together at the end of this game.
This is ongoing.. here's the crux:
Derrick: What does it really say? We have to divide the 2 of them, Nicole and Christine, and then Cody doesn't have one of them either, know what I'm sayin'? One of them gotta go.
Caleb continues, telling Frankie and Derrick everything Nicole just said to him, and whenever there's an opening for it, both add more damaging info on top of it..
Derrick: Bottom line is, this is so much easier of a decision than last week.
Frankie: Yup. You tell Christine, "obviously, you're going up as a pawn so that we can have a backdoor option. Don't take it personally. Just go win the Veto." That's all you say.
****Willing Nicole to win the Veto.. WonderDish Powers, Activate!
Derrick: If by chance we're wrong and Frankie's right, and Christine wins the Veto and goes, "guess what, guys.."
Frankie: But she can't if she's sitting next to her.
Derrick: That's what I'm saying.. If she wasn't...
Frankie: I wouldn't say all that.
Derrick: I wouldn't either. Just say, we want a backdoor option with Victoria. That's it.
OK.. And we have our Nominations named.. The boys are still talking, but with this information now in place, I'm going to backtrack a bit on the night and fill in the blanks on a couple of key moments. They'll appear above this point, so they'll display in chronological order.
And this concludes the Overnight Report. I'll see you back here when BB wakes the HGs!
