Big Brother 16 Live Feeds Spoilers (Week 7 Nominees and Battle of the Block Results)

Find out what has happened inside the Big Brother house since last night’s live eviction here:

Last night Jocasta and Hayden were evicted from the Big Brother house. There was a lot of fallout from the double eviction, but which two houseguests won HoH?

Nicole and Christine won HoH.

Nicole was obviously going to be the next target after losing her closest ally Hayden, so it was crucial that she won HoH this week. Christine will try to play her HoH safe, but she’s actually a target for a lot of people in the house.

Nicole nominated Frankie and Caleb.

Christine nominated Donny and Zach.

So how did this all happen? Well, Nicole had a lengthy conversation with Zach explaining how he was very close to being evicted from the house by his own allies this past week before there was a last minute flip that she, Hayden, and Donny were excluded from. Zach believes her and is furious with Christine and Frankie; Zach is adamant about getting Frankie or Christine out next, and is not even trying to hide the fact that he wants nothing to do with them. That’s right – Zankie is no more.  Zach then came up with an idea for Nicole to nominate him and Frankie together so he could throw the Battle of the Block competition to ensure that Frankie stays on the block. As a result, Nicole will stay HoH and if Frankie were to win the Power of Veto, Christine could be the replacement nominee instead.

However, Nicole is unsure whether Zach really would throw the Battle of the Block competition. She then had a long conversation with Derrick before Caleb joined their conversation. Caleb then offered to be nominated next to Frankie so he could throw the Battle of the Block. Nicole believes Caleb will be more willing to throw the competition, so that’s why Caleb is on the block with Frankie.

Despite being a big part of blindsiding Hayden and Nicole, Derrick and Cody are still in a decent position in the house. However, Nicole did admit to not trusting Cody as much anymore. After they won HoH, Nicole and Christine had a long talk about backdooring Cody this week. As well, Christine even contemplated nominating Derrick. However, Derrick had a long talk with Nicole afterwards and smoothed things over with her, and Nicole says she trusts Derrick the most in the house. So yes, Derrick is still running the house.

The Battle of the Block competition will be played later today. I’ll update this post when that competition has taken place. If everything goes according to plan, Donny and Zach will win the Battle of the Block and Christine will be dethroned. Frankie is the target this week and will likely be the next one evicted if he doesn’t win the Power of Veto.

However, the Team America mission this week is to get someone to volunteer to be a pawn and then evict him or her. Well, Caleb has volunteered to be a pawn this week. Still, it’s unclear whether this can be considered as part of Team America’s doing since Caleb offered to be a pawn without any encouragement from Derrick, Frankie, or Donny. I guess we’ll have to see how the week plays out, but Frankie is definitely the target for most people in the house.

UPDATE: Frankie won the Battle of the Block. Frankie and Caleb are safe for the week. Nicole is dethroned, Christine is the sole HoH, and Donny and Zach remain on the block.

Caleb tried to throw the Battle of the Block, but apparently Frankie was able to win it anyway. There was a huge argument between Zach and Frankie about how much Frankie has lied to everyone. Cody even got heated with Frankie too. Afterwards, Frankie revealed to all the houseguests that Ariana Grande is his sister. Some of the guys don’t know she is, so they didn’t care about this reveal. A lot of people are still against Frankie, but Frankie’s reveal did stop the arguing.

The Power of Veto competition will be played tomorrow. I’ll post an update after the competition takes place.

    I watched the live feed tonight, a few thoughts:

    I think Frankie reveling who he was to help himself more psychologically than helping his game, as well as to explain himself to the others. I do believe what he said about that combined with his grandfather dying affected how he played the game and his judgment. That is a lot for someone to take, especially in this kind of situation where he couldn’t see or talk to his family, or really even talk about them. I do also think that lying is part of the game, but by the end he was lying to too many people and that’s what was hurting him in the game.

    From the other houseguests point of view gamewise, I think it will hurt Frankie, because they wouldn’t want someone semi-famous in the house. I think Derrick was planting the seed to the others that he would be difficult to win against the others. I think Frankie knows this and this was not meant as a game play, I think he just couldn’t take it anymore.

    Derrick went RIGHT to work after the reveal, planting seeds everywhere he could. He even got to Victoria, who was totally starstruck at first.

    Frankie was totally safe this week, but the house had turned against him and he played the only card he had left. The star card, hoping hgs would be too starstruck or intimidated to mess with him. It was a pretty manipulative move.But too transparent.

    Poor Nicole is so naive. She’s afraid people will hate her when she leaves the house because she went after Frankie. She needs to get over that, stat.

  • Karen C

    I agree about Nicole. She shouldn’t let it affect her game.
    I do think Frankie played the star card, and maybe he could have done an apology and explaination without reveling who he was. But I think he knows it might hurt him more than it helps. The others were starstruck at first, but now most of them are seeing that this could hurt them, and Frankie knows this.

    They really do need to get over the “star factor” because the have to realize that people outside the house do not vote in the end, 500k first and deal with the rest afterwards.

    I don’t watch the live feeds, so I may have missed something that would explain why it would help Frankie to let the HGs know about his sister. If it was truly a desperation move, why play that one-time-only card during a week when he was safe? Am I missing something or is it just Frankie being crazy?

  • Karen C

    I think they are beginning to realize this, from the conversations today. The only thing it really affects is the America’s Favorite, which is given in some years at the finale. Derrick realizes that is why he was probably one of America’s players, though he might have been anyway if people liked him enough.

    Thursday after the eviction, people began questioning about Frankie after Nicole said he and Christine were trying to get Zach out. In the meantime, Frankie and Christine went to Nicole and they tried to make a deal with them, I think he even told her about the Detinators. He talked to Zach too, and told him he was only trying to get him out because others had told him things. After all this there was some kind of blow up because Frankie was playing all sides , and just about everyone except for Christine turned on Frankie. So, he was nominated for eviction, but won the Battle of the Block. All day he stayed in bed buy himself, and said he wanted to make an announcement. He said that the reason he was telling everyone because the lying about who he was made him paranoid especially after his grandfather died, that’s why he was going from one side to another. I really don’t think it was a desparation move, I think it was really bothering him. I think he realizes this makes him more of a target.
