Now that we have officially met the cast on the show, here is my take on the cast :
The Two Heads of Household –
I really like Frankie, he is high energy. His eyes remind me of my old pal, Jonathan, but he’s not him.
The other HoH, Caleb, is a beast. Though I feel bad that people kept giving him all the props when Hayden did just as good, just didn’t hold out as long by a minute.
My favorite thus far, will probably be Brittany – maybe I just have a thing for ladies on Big Brother named, Brittany? I’m not sure. Though Britney Haynes spells it differently. Also, this Brittany will never be as good as Britney. That’s just a fact. Hopefully she does well though, in the house and doesn’t turn out to be a horrible person. She is also a mother of three and newly divorce.
Hayden, in the confessional, referred to Amanda as looking like Whitney Houston. In what world is that a compliment?
Christine is from Tuscon, Arizona – which is close enough to Yuma, that I will be cheering for her. She seems funny enough.
There are some interesting noses going on in this season’s cast. I like cute noses so my eyes go looking for that. Is that weird? I don’t think so.
Cody, I don’t have any feelings on just yet. Seems like a decent guy.
Derrick, isn’t telling people that he is a police officer. Which would be fine but don’t tell people that you work in a different field. That will always back fire.
Devin, the guy who looks like the Rock – some say but I don’t really see it or I’m fighting seeing it, is another parent in the house along with Derrick and Brittany. I’m not sure if I could go into the house right now with Walker Dennis being so young. Maybe once he is older (like two years old) but I would miss the little guy too much.
Donny, super funny! He needs to learn some names though! Also, he is the oldest in the house so hopefully he doesn’t fall into the trap of house caretaker.
Jocasta, now that I’m hearing her name, all I think about is the would be wife to Ultron, Marvel character. I like her bow ties, I’m just waiting to hear if she is a Doctor Who fan.
Joey, poor Joey. She’s the first in Team America, which I’m not a fan of them knowing about each other. I’m also surprised that America choose her, as I thought Frankie would a sure bet. Maybe his fans didn’t want to screw up his game, that makes sense. Also, if Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin are not there, are they really Team America? Or awesome puppets? Now that I think of it, Haas / Benjamin were Team Angle and World’s Greatest Tag Team, they were never ‘Team America.”
Nicole, I have high hopes for but now I feel like she’s going to quickly become background.
Paola, as I’m not sure if one is suppose to type it Pao Pao, though that looks like it could be right. She was my favorite of the first eight but I like how the second eight pretty much broke up any plans of having it be two sides of the house against each other. If the house guests were separated by more than just a night, that might have been a bigger divide but it makes sense that they will all just become a group of sixteen instead of two groups of eight.
Victoria, I liked how Frankie approached her and once she was first out, he seems to have ignored her to go with his fellow HoH.
Zach, I keep getting Dan vibes from him, I believe it is the air but he doesn’t seem right in the house. He’s too in people’s faces or he’s faking a personality in the house but the dairy room shows a different calmer side to him. He’s like a worst Dan.
Not sure who else America will choose to be in an alliance with Joey. I imagine America is now thinking about who will go with Joey well. Frankie and Victoria would be my initial idea.
I must admit with the Battle of the Block, that I completely misheard Chenbot about the rules. Speaking of which, what the heck was Chenbot wearing this past two days? The first day red dress made her look way too skinny and the second pink dress didn’t flatter her at all. Wardrobe must take better care of her, she’s the host and the boss’ wife! Get it together, production!
So the way Battle of the Block works is that the two HoH nominate two people each. Then those two groups of two will compete in that competition and the winning duo will be safe from further nominations and also, the HoH who nominated them is put into the pool of candidates. So if one of the other two losers (not winners?) wins PoV (Power of Veto), then they are off the block and the two previous winners will be safe from going up onto the block. But now the losing HoH can be put up as a candidate. But if the remaining two initial nominees don’t win POV or one of the other four players (one of whom will be the winning HoH) don’t take one of those two off the block, then this whole extra competition doesn’t really amount to anything.
The schedule will be – HoH competitions (with maybe the last two standing, winning. maybe?) next, the four nominations, Battle of the Block competition, then the POV competition, lastly the live eviction episode. With maybe the Have and Have Not competition thrown in from time to time. I have no idea how one live episode and two edited episodes is enough to cover all of that, plus the interactions. Though the live episode does cover competitions as well but with time allotted to Chenbot’s forced interactions and lousiness, it is a lot of show to cram into forty minutes.
Hopefully my Anti-Chenbot opinions don’t keep me from being eligible to be on the show. Though my wife doesn’t want me on the show but I really want to be on it, so badly! I think I would do quite well on it.
Speaking of my wife, shout outs to her for explaining the Battle of the Block, as I misheard the one key sentence and thought it was a completely different result. I thought the winning side will take down the losing side’s HoH, hence why the HoH would want to put up good competitors to keep themselves safe but the winning duo takes down the HoH that originally nominated them, so now the HoH will want to nominate weaker competitors to keep themselves safe. Either way works but only one is the way Chenbot explained it.
So now that I’ve typed all of this, I’m not sure how often I will do BB16 posts. I thought it might be pretty regularly but I was thinking of how last year, I would have had lots to say about each episode but I’m not expecting much hijinks and drama from this year. Which seems to be the point, that they cast older than 24 year olds and it is the nicest diverse cast they have had in a while.
We will see how the season goes but I am super excited!
This season’s Brittany is one good looking lady but her profile picture does not do her any justice.
Here is what she really looks like :
You are welcome
Hopefully in tonight’s episode, we see more of her and less of everyone else!
Also, that she doesn’t go the route of Porsche from Big Brother 13 – and be the hot girl who eventually just dons sweats and eats all day. Oh, how production must have been disappointed with her after the third week.
