I have a busy Tuesday night even without Big Brother changing nights so this recap is likely to be a quick one. I still want to get through Utopia and Below Deck! Plus this week is not going to count at all so the main point of watching is to hear the diary rooms and watch the competitions.
I don’t know why people harp on Victoria’s looks. I think she is very pretty. I think it is an American thing. I also think that she has done the best she possibly could with what she had. She laid low, didn’t piss people off, and didn’t pose a threat. She is also smarter than people give her credit for about the dynamics of the house. So this package where they make her say that she played an amazing social game in the diary room and then play clips of her crying and being ridiculous is rather mean. She struck a final two with Derrick early on, and never did anything to endanger their deal. Unlike the other bitches that ping ponged around from man to man, she stayed true to one person in the house. She’s the last girl standing for a reason. Plus, I love that she never quits even when there is no possible way for her to win. So production putting words in her mouth like Derrick is he sidekick and she is the super hero, is just mean. Lay off my girl.
I haven’t had time to watch feeds so this is all new to me this week. It is sort of refreshing. Derrick is a bit worried whose side Caleb is on in his DR. Is he with Cody and Derrick? ( I think so) or with Frankie (nah he hates Frankie at this point, he gets all the attention).
The veto comp is the BB Freakshow. It’s the pictures that are parts of two houseguests mixed together. Except this season they mixed three together. Ya’ll know I have facial recognition issues so I would just take the penalty on this one and find a beer I’d stashed in the house and drink that and talk to the live feeders in isolation. I have a confession to make. Despite all of Caleb’s tall tales, stalker behaviors and PTSD, the kid is sort of likeable. There, I said it. I’d be okay with him coming in second. Why was there no bearded lady? 🙁 Frankie wins with a time of 5:54 Victoria was last with 17:18. Derrick lost by 21 seconds. The guys realize they should have backdoored Frankie last week. Duh.
Frankie and Derrick do a good job with the Team America mission to pretend there is a rat in the house. Unfortunately it came on the day that they were shamed into cleaning the house for five hours after Jeff and Jordan told them it smelled and was disgusting. Cody is pissing himself over the idea of a rat. Caleb invents a glue trap and baits it with cheese. A rat patrol is formed they plan to stay up all night. Derrick, Victoria and Caleb to a short DR about the rat. Franking went mental on live feeds because he didn’t get to do a diary with other people. He’s such a douche! Cody suggest spraying cheese with toilet bowl cleaner. Victoria ties to go to sleep. Derrick convinces her to stay up with him until six. Mission Accomplished! I am so glad Derrick gets another $5K.
Frankie yammers on to the camera in HOH about how he has won 9 competitions. Victoria dresses to the nines for the veto ceremony. Frankie says it is with a very heavy heart he has decided not to use the POV.
