The Overnight Report
If you went to bed before 1am eastern, or you were out and about last night, go immediately to BoB Spoiler and Aftermath post. I've read it 3 times now AND watched the flashback on the live feeds.. The reaction to Frankie's revelations are priceless, and Lessa's coverage is a thing of beauty!
"It's Frankie's funeral. I buried the Frankie you know, and standing before you is @FrankieJGrande."
If you haven't gotten the feeds yet this season, it's well worth the price of the 2 day FREE trial to gettem and check this out for yourself. ;-) Plus - this season just frikkin' rocks, and you should be watching it all on the feeds anyway. 'Nuff said.
From my point of view, Zach's been internally struggling with his where-the-hell-did-these-come-from-feelings for Frankie the whole season. But, he has stopped exclaiming "I hate Frankie" with every other breath, and has even said he loves him a few times.. but not TO him. So, I'm on Zankie watch, even more than usual.
End of Have Nots
Caleb: The football thing we get to go on? It's gonna be nuts.
**There was a prize for winning the BoB - It sounds like Frankie, Christine and Caleb get to go to a football game.
Derrick: Outside the house.
Caleb: Outside the house.
Derrick: Even the football players will probably be instructed not to say anything to you, if they watch the show.
Frankie: It was slightly draining.. All the running and the pulling and the..
Caleb: It says 12:00, Frankie..
Frankie: Yay! Cheers!
Upstairs in HoH, Christine is alone in bed, sniffling a bit.
Nicole and Victoria are in the bathroom On Camera 1 and 2..
Nicole: Just know that I do love you, and anything I've said in the DR.. it's not anything.
Victoria: Don't worry.. It's fine.
Christine and Nicole
Nicole: Let's just start keeping things between us? Not even Cody.
Christine: I don't tell Cody anything anymore.
Nicole: The thought that Caleb wanted to throw that comp and now they're best friends again? And knowing that Frankie's famous, and I'm sitting here putting him on blast? It makes me feel like poop, but at the same time, it shouldn't matter who you are. You were playing a very dirty game, and I called you out on it, and I'm sorry that you had fans before this, but I am gonna continue to play my game. I could very well surrender, but I'm not..
Christine: We're screwed. I pray that Donny wins the Veto.. Because if Donny wins the Veto, Victoria goes up, you, Frankie and Donny vote out Zach, and I'm the tie breaker. That would be perfect.
Nicole: (couldn't hear)
Christine: I don't trust that Victoria would vote the way we want her to. She's gonna do whatever the hguys want.
Christine: Unless... Now that Frankie is..
Nicole: Ariana Grande's brotherrr..
Christine: Do you think he'd have some pull with her?
Nicole: Probably.. I don't know, Christine.
Christine: Damn.. I want Donny to win so bad.
Christine: I promise I wont. Don't even worry about it. I promise.
Nicole: Please, do not. Cuz I would not have done that to you.
**actually, putting Christine up as the ReNom was Nicole's plan from the get-go.
Nicole: And we already promised each other, but I just, please don't blindside me like that, and if you are going to? Tell me. I've been blindsided so much these past few days, I feel sick. I have nobody.. That's why I feel they're gonna try to get you to put me up. I wanna work with you moving forward, and the only way we can do that is with a clean slate.
Christine: Derrick and Cody played us so hard. Oh my God.. Zach could come back.. But there's no way Zach could beat Hayden in anything.
Nicole: And we don't even know if there's a buy back.. (an HG from the jury pool returning)
Christine: Nicole, we can do this. Eff them. If we get Zach out, then Derrick and Cody are completely alone.
Christine: Except for, they have Caleb.
Nicole: I don't know where I stand with Frankie, and if I have to work with him, I will, but do you understand why I don't trust him? He has been playing everyone like a fiddle.
Christine: We don't know the new Frankie.. It would be like playing with an all new player. To be honest, I feel totally uncomfortable around him now..
Nicole: Now it's like, "I'm famous..
Christine: I don't care who his sister is.
And we're moving forward into the night..
***Kiss you where, Cody?
***Aww. ok.. if you insist.
Frankie and Christine
Christine: Are they mad that I put Zach up?
Frankie: I think they're afraid you're gonna backdoor Cody.
Christine: No, I'm gonna vote Zach out. That's what's gonna happen.
Frankie: I don't know.
Christine: Cuz I need him to go home.
Frankie: I know. I need him to go home too.
Christine: In a perfect world, Donny wins the Veto, I put up Victoria..
Christine: Donny, You, Nicole vote Zach out. I'm the tie breaker.
Frankie: He dug himself such a grave today.
Christine: Oh my God.
Frankie: His behavior..
Christine: Why are Cody and Derrick acting weird toward me after Zach's blowup? They're hanging out with him..
Frankie: That's what they were doing to me all day!
Frankie starts nudging toward getting Christine to want to put Nicole up as the ReNom, telling her that if she blames everything on Nicole, the guys will think they can trust her again.. Then he goes in for the kill..
Cody: Will you come cuddle with me?
Nicole: Ok, but let's talk first. I totally wanna cuddle you though.
Cam 1 and 2
HoH - Frankie and Christine
Following through on his promise to the guys to try to get Christine to put Nicole up as the Renom, Frankie gets to work... Keep in mind, he has til Monday, really.. And PoV hasn't been played yet..
Frankie: She says everything to the guys. She says everything that you say, and she says everything I say. So we just can't talk to her anymore.
Frankie: She is a huge liability.
Christine: I need to deal with her, not to backdoor her, although she did give me Donny..
Frankie: Yeah, but she took me!
Cody and Nicole
Nicole: I'm probably being portrayed as the villain, because I don't take shit from anyone. I hope they don't show me looking into your eyes, saying I'll never trust you again.
Cody: They're gonna show it.. I got asked about it.
Nicole: That was a vicious look I gave you. I'm sorry.
Victoria comes through, very upset, Nicole goes to see her in the bathroom.. Victoria is crying but says she's just stressed.
Nicole: Don't be stressed Vitoria. We have each other. Look at me. I have your back.
They move into the Beehive..
Nicole: Honestly, I want Zach in this game, but not if it comes down to you and him. We have to just keep the target on his back right now. You and I are fine!
Camera 1 and 2
Have Not Room
Zach and Cody
Zach: I don't know, bro.
Cody: Well, you're not gonna get any pity from me. Stop feelin' f'in sorry for yourself.
Zach: He f*cked me..
Cody: Ok.. He wanted you out of the house..
Zach: But he flipped the script.
Cody: On who?
Zach: On everyone!
Cody: On who?! On who, bro?
Zach: I just hope I win Veto..
Cody: You're not going f'ing home, even if you don't win the Veto.
Frankie comes in.. He offers to leave, and Cody tells him no need.
Cody: It's gonna be a tough situation.. We're probably gonna sit next to each other.
Frankie: You're not sitting next to each other.
Cody: It's gonna be a shitty situation.
Frankie: You're not sitting next to each other. I just had a good conversation with Christine. I told her about what um Nicole's been saying, which apparently she's also been lying when it comes to Christine.. She's really pissed, and (whispers) I think I can get her to backdoor her. She's on the fence.. She's on the verge of that right now.
Cody: Oh God.. Did you say stuff that I said?
Frankie: no. I just said that she's been lying about stuff that I said.
This is ongoing, much like the night. We're moving forward..
Papa Derrick is comforting baby girl Victoria on 3 and 4..
Cody's with Zach on 1 and 2
Cody: I don't give a f*ck about that right now. I care about you staying.
Zach: I know, but it's not looking good.
Cody: Yes it is.
Zach: I have to win the Veto. Because, if Christine wins the Veto, what is she doing?
Cody: (shakes his head) That's why I wanna make sure I'm on her good side, because if I sit there next to you, then I will blow up in a worse way than..
Zach: Dude.. (puts his head down)
Cody: ..you could have ever imagined.
Cody: Cuz like, today? I started to get so heated.. I was like..
Cody: "You didn't want me to stay!" And was like, dude, you need to pull it back.. we're not outside of the f'in house.
Zach: Dude, that's nothing compared to what I did.
Cody: Yeah, but like, I just never wanna get to that point in here.
Zach: I was literally, like, cursing Christine out.
Cody: Oh yeah, dude, you gotta dial back on that. I don't think your mom's gonna like that, bro.
Zach: Obviously not.
Cody: Yeah, so don't f'in do it. Like, I love the whole character that you are, cuz i think it's hilarious..
Zach: That's me, bro.
Cody: ..but you don't need to curse. Every time. Like "f*cking" comes out of your mouth every time, and it probably ruins the shot. Can you imagine how sick it would be if they never had to bleep you?
**you're kidding, right, Cody? I guarantee you drop more f bombs than anyone in the house.
Zach: Yeah, but I..
Cody: You don't have to explain it. Spur of the moment. I get it. I curse worse than a sailor.
Zach: Dude.. I curse so much, I can't help it. I just like cursing. I'm a very intense person, and it makes shit more intense when you say the f word.
Cody: I love it. Don't f'in explain to me.
Zach: We're gonna need a miracle to get through this week.
Cody: No. We're not.
Zach: I mean, if I win the Veto, we're golden.
Cody: Not really.. cuz what if you come off and I go up?
Zach: Then Donny goes home.
Cody: That's what I'm saying.. Even if you don't win the Veto.. You just gotta gun it.
Cody: Honestly, mend it with Frankie.
Zach: (deep breath)
Cody: Just a little. I know you don't want to.
Zach: He tried to get me out of the house last week.
Right on cue.. Frankie passes through..
Frankie: Night boys.
Cody: Night buddy. Love you.
Frankie: See you tomorrow.
** :-( booo.. no Zankie snugs tonight.. Oh well, the Z half isn't ready by a long shot.
Zach: He tried to get me out of the house last week.
Cody: Just because you got played like a little bitch doesn't mean you need to sulk about it. You shoulda f'in known when you had someone like me ___ in week 2. You were laughin' at him behind his back..
Zach: I know.. and I deserve to go home.
Cody: Why are you mad at him?
Zach: Cuz I don't understand what his reason was to..
Derrick enters the room..
Cody: Well what was your reason to do it to me or him?
Zach: I didn't do anything..
Cody: You were doin' the same f'in thing he was doin' to you.
After asking permission, Derrick joins them..
Zach: Technically, yes. I'm not gonna deny it.
Cody: Yeah, so don't f'in be a little bitch about it. You don't see me n him sulking.
Zach: But.. But..
Zach: But I didn't go behind one of your guys' back and try to get you out. Know what I mean? Dude, just cuz I had a final 3 deal with them and I had a final 3 deal with you guys, and I told Frankie I had a final 2 with him, doesn't mean I went behind your guys' back and tried to get you out. I had a f'in good game plan goin', and I was lettin' it ride. It was gonna work.
Cody: It wasn't gonna work. You were losin' face with me so f'in fast. I been sayin' to to him for a while.
Cody: I was like, I'm callin' this kid for what it is now..
Zach: Alright, well you're smarter than me. Frankie's smarter than me..
Cody: I still had your back
Zach: ..and I got f*cked. I know you guys have my back. You guys have saved me twice already. But, the fact of the matter is, ya know, it's just not looking good.. for me. I can only speak for myself. Obviously, you guys want me to stay for your guys' game too, and.. we need a miracle.
Derrick: Why do we need a miracle?
Zach: I don't now..
Cody: Us 3 need to be careful, because you were trying to play the whole final 3, final 3, so now everybody knows about it. So now, if anyone's sitting next to one of us 3, we're goin' home.
Zach: You guys do what you need to do. If you need to throw me under the bus, do it.. I don't care at this point.
Moving ahead a few minutes.. to 1:21am.. Caleb has now joined them.. Derrick counts votes and tells Zach he will stay over Donny with their votes and Victoria's..
Caleb: Frankie told me, "if Zach doesn't come around and talk to me like a man, why would I want to keep him here, but at the end of the day, I don't want Zach gone. I've wanted Donny gone for a long time. So, I'm gonna vote to keep Zach here."
Zach: But he was plotting to get me out last week..
Zach keeps coming back to that, and the guys have had enough of it.. It's time to move on to bigger things. Derrick tells Cody, Caleb and Zach that it may be a good idea to let Christine know that Nicole had planned to backdoor her.
Cody and Christine
Christine tells Cody that Frankie's sleeping up there with her.. Cody pulls her down for a snuggle.
Christine: I don't want you to worry that he's sleeping up here, because I don't listen to anything that comes out of his mouth... ever again.
Cody: You're such a liar!
Christine: What do you mean?!
Cody: I'm just kidding.
Christine: I didn't even speak to him today..
Cody: Is he up here?
Christine: No, He's in the DR. That's why I'm talkin' to you.
Cody: Oh. You're such a liar.
Christine: What am I a liar about:? You're such a turd.
Christine: I love you, Cody.
**Skippy goes in close on her wedding pic.
Christine: You wanna make a pinkie promise with me?
Cody: Pinkie promise that you love me?
Christine: Pinkie promise that I'm not going to backdoor you. Stop worrying.
And we're moving forward..
Derrick and Nicole
Nicole's very worried Christine is going to put her up as a ReNom, even though she promised she wouldn't... likely because that was Nicole's plan for the week too. Derrick calms her, and advises her to be nice to Caleb, just in case, because he'd rather vote out Donny than her, at this point.
Talk turns to Frankie's revelation to the HGs tonight, and they get into the game mechanics and value of it..
Derrick: If I got caught in the situation that Frank got caught in.. On any of the past 15 seasons of Big Brother, I would not be going home this week because I won the Veto, but I'd be re-targeted every week. This was a great decision by Frankie, and I respect it. He knew that he had lost the house's trust. And what other card did he have but to say, "Listen, I have the support of millions of people," and it creates a level of fear.
Nicole: But it sucks! I don't want anyone to be afraid of him. If I'm still here next week, I'm going after him again.
Derrick: Well, I'm just telling you, that this is a game, and..
Nicole: Ok.. Well this game sucks right now.
Derrick: I'd be lying to you and everyone watching if I didn't say that honestly, I feel a little bit slighted, and these are the reasons.. I feel slighted because, although Elissa played in this game and had the support of the Brenchel Army, there's..
Nicole: We stand no chance for America's Favorite.
Derrick: .Done. That's already done. You know that.
Nicole: Oh yeah. No chance whatsoever. So that's 25 grand in his pocket.
Derrick: He's here.. He's gonna donate the whole thing to charity.. So any type of America's twist, they're gonna give it to him. I didn't come here for fame or the tv show. I didn't come here for that. I don't think you did either.
Nicole: Not at all.
Derrick: Bottom line is, we're fans of the show first.. We both wanted to be here and try to win an amount of money that we wouldn't make for a very long time. That's why we're here. Unfortunately not everyone is here for that same reason. And I can't promise you that one of us is gonna win it. You know better than I do.. The best players don't always win.
Nicole: Look at last year. 3 floaters made it to the final 3.
Derrick: Sometimes it's just luck. But.. I will say in his defense.. He said it himself, "Here's my Dan's Funeral Speech." It was a great decision by him. It really really was. And I gotta respect it. He saw..
Nicole: But I don't think people should forgive him for what he did.
**which is exactly the same thing Derrick and Cody did, only Hayden and you didn't call them out about it.
Derrick: I would concur with that, but what I'm saying is in his defense, it was a great move by him, and it's up to the house to decide whether that gives him a free pass in this game. That's really it. I can tell you one thing.. There's only 4 people..
Nicole: That's why I'm upset. It's me, you, Victoria, Cody.
Nicole: And I'm just scared because I heard that Christine said she's the only girl who could win this game.. So I don't think she would keep me. And say I'm up against Zach.. I don't have the votes to stay in this house if I'm against him.
You get the gist.. And it's time to bring this Overnight Report to a close.. Let's join Cody and Derrick as Derrick shares his musings on an ideal final 4 for them..
Cody and Derrick
Derrick; Know what I would like to see in a perfect world? Me, You, Caleb, Victoria.
Cody: Yeah, that'd be nice.
Derrick: Vote Caleb out first, cuz he can always win another comp..
Derrick: And then vote Victoria out, whoever wins the (final 3 hoh) comp.
***It's been clear to me that this is what Derrick has been grooming and nurturing the relationship with Victoria for since the get go.. In the event she wins the F3 HoH.. I don't know if he'd throw it to her.. He's just chosen now to share it with Cody.
Derrick: I take you or you take me.. and we do it.
Cody: Yeah. She would never beat us.
Derrick: She would never beat us.
Cody: Oh it's a wonderful game we play.
Derrick: Our luck, she would win the comp, take either you or me, then come out and start talking perfectly good English and be like, "I'm actually a PhD.. It was all strategy."
They continue talking, mostly about Frankie's revelation this evening... then about liars in the game.
Derrick: I think the only ones who tell the truth on that board are Victoria, cuz she doesn't know how to lie, and Caleb. That's it.
And this concludes the Overnight Report! See you when BB wakes the HGs. On today's agenda - PoV Player Picking, The Power of Veto Competition, and hopefully.. movement on the Zankie front.. Here's my ideal world scenario: Frankie gets picked to play in the PoV, wins, and like a night in sparkly Zankie armor, he rescues his hurting prince from the block. The End.
