Afternoon: Part 2 (Trying to Save Donny)

Good evening, ladies & gents! I was gonna do the Afternoon Part 2 post much earlier but as I said over on twitter, I turned the feeds on and saw everyone sleeping. lol :P

Okay, let's get to it!

There's been a lot of talk between Frankie/Derrick today about saving Donny this week! Here are the two convo's that say it all.

4:27pm BBT:
Backyard Lounger

Derrick: "We look like a before and after tanning pic. I'm the before. F*ck my life."

Frankie starts whispering about flipping to keep Donny.

Derrick: "I think we need to have a conversation later. Make magic (happen) want a show America? We'll give you a show."
Frankie: "Yep."

They see Vic/Nic together in the backyard and mention how dangerous they are because they're getting close. Derrick says maybe they should go into the D.R. and ask them if saving Donny can be the mission this week and mention that they couldn't do it before because of the pre-veto ceremony deadline.

Derrick: "I know one thing: America would be happy."
Frankie: "I know."
Derrick: "They'd be ecstatic. There's no way Christine will keep him, though. She hates that man."
Frankie: "But I think it's better for all us (to keep Donny)."
Derrick: "Maybe. Me and you gotta be alone later and break it down."

Which brings us to...

9:03pm BBT:
HOH Bathroom
Frankie said he's planted seeds to Christine & Caleb and that Caleb is "teeter totering" (on who should go this week). Frankie also mentions that Cody is concerned about how much Nicole is rebuilding relationships in the house, but thinks they could all beat her in HOH.

Derrick: "I do think, with the exception of you, the endurance comps are setup for the girls to win."
Frankie: "Absolutely."
Derrick: "Are you dead-set convinced this is the right move (to keep Donny)?"
Frankie: "I am dead-set that this is the right move, because.."

Frankie says that the DR was excited that it could be a possibility of saving Donny.
Frankie: "If we do this for (Donny) and he wins HOH, we're safe. I know we are. I'm 100% convinced. Nicole is coming after me and if she was smart, she'd put me up against you or Caleb. That's what I would do."

Derrick thinks Nicole would go after Christine.

Frankie: "The way that things have been hinted to me.."
BB: "You're not allowed to talk about your Diary Room sessions with other houseguests."
Derrick (to BB): "We're tryin' to make a miracle happen here."
Talk continues..

Derrick: "Victoria would go with the house, anyway."

Derrick said he won't bring up the idea of saving Donny to Caleb because it'll look too shady, but that if Caleb approaches him about it, he'll try to convince him it's a good idea to keep him this week.

Currently at 10:03pm BBT, Derrick and Caleb are talking in the Fire Bedroom.
Caleb said that Frankie is planting seeds to getting Nicole out this week. Derrick said that Nicole would put up Christine if she stayed. Caleb adds that she'd put up Frankie VS Christine. Derrick said that Nicole/Cody are getting close again and that Christine/Nicole are fighting for Cody. Caleb said that if he won HOH, he'd put up Nicole/Christine. Derrick agrees. Derrick then starts talking about how Cody is lining up jury votes and that he definitely has Christine's vote.

This convo is ongoing. I'll update this convo in the morning in the Overnighter.

*And that's pretty much it for the Afternoon Part 2 post! It seems that the wheels are in motion to save Donny! I'll be curious to see how the next couple of days unfold before Thursday's live show. I'll see y'all back in the morning with the Overnighter! :D Until then, enjoy the live feeds!!

Stay tuned...

Jamie, Wil's newest BB Saga is by far the best to date, lol you should put up a link for everyone else to see :)
Thanks for all that you do!

Jamie said...

omg it was HILARIOUS! I tweeted it earlier and figured I'd put it up in tomorrows Overnighter so people had something to watch as they waited for the post to be done. Thanks for the heads up tho!

PS so nice to see his Elisa impression back! lol

The original song is called Shake It Off by Taylor Swift. I don't like her version bit will cracked me up!!

Tony Akinremi said...

Wow Jamie thanks again for all your work on this site.

Wow I'm glad something ticked in Frankie snd derricks head about saving Donny. The thing now is they will go after Nicole. I wish they'd just bask door Victoria or Christine.

Derrick and Frankie would really have to work some magic to save Donny because everyone else hates him right now. In the end I think they'll decide it's too dangerous for their own games to push it much at all or risk sketching the others out about them. I mean they could probably do it by Derrick just straight telling Victoria you're evicting Nicole but they'd pretty much have to ditch the other 3 to just work with Donny which they are not going to do. Maybe they could get Caleb to be ok with it but I don't see any way with Cody and Christine.

I have been following your blog since BB10. Thank you so much for all of your time!!! The first chance I get to get online everyday, I go straight to your blog to see what's happening :)
In the time that I have followed Jamie's blog, you are usually right. I hope you are wrong this time! Derrick seems to be able to talk his way out of anything!


Anne Donovan said...

Jamie have you seen Jill Rance's (zach's mom) 80 minute interview with missCleoBB? It's great.

Andy Tatnall said...

As much as I would like to see Donny stay, I'd hate for it to be solely because of heavy-handed DR "hints" and intervention.

Derrick's played a brilliant game thus far, and it's hard to see how flipping on the house would not put that in jeopardy (unless, of course, he can flip the rest of them, which seems unlikely). I'd hate to see his game suffer because the DR is nervous about a ratings dip.

I like Nicole, but she came right back into the house and went into isolation mode with Donny. I was hoping she'd see she needed to go right in and try to work with some of her enemies, but that hasn't happened.

Derrick might be able to eventually talk his way into saving Donny. But I don't think he cares enough either way between Donny and Nicole to put in the work. I think he views the risk to his game in trying hard to save Donny as greater than the risk in Nicole staying over Donny. Derrick and Cody are the closest relationship in the house and Cody is deadset on getting Donny out for the dual reason of being anti Donny and thinking Nicole would work with him down the line over the others if needed. So Derrick is not going to risk fracturing that relationship even a little for a move he doesn't think is that more beneficial to his game to make it worth it. So ultimately Derrick will just shut it down to Frankie that there's too much pushback from everyone else to make it worth trying too hard.


SDfan said...

Jamie and Brian - what is your opinion on Donny disclosing TA to the others if he goes this week?

Kim @ TiesThatBindQuilting said...

Derrick - no! Donny is going to come after you. You are his main target. Do not save him this week! Do not listen to the DR's heavy hints!

Mike Slagley said...

It really sounds like production has been putting ideas in Derrick's and Frankie's heads.

"You guys want to really shake up this season and make it exciting? You guys want to be legends? Find a way to keep Donny...."

I love Donny, but don't want him to stay if it's due to suggestions from production.

I believe Derrick is Nicole's top target as well so I'm not sure it really makes much of a difference there. I mean perhaps she might be more susceptible to Derrick's silver tongue than Donny. But he does have that Team America bond with Donny which he hasn't really been buying as true but if he worked hard to keep Donny safe this week perhaps he could start to build back up. Nicole is also more likely to win HOH if it's endurance as everyone suspects which makes her dangerous while Donny has proven himself able to win POV which means someone else in your alliance must go that next week and Donny could then win the HOH after that. So it's kind of 6 of 1 half dozen of the other for Derrick choosing which of the 2 is best to get rid of this week. Which is why I see him just going with the flow and letting the minions in his alliance get their way this week as there's not a clear enough benefit in it for him to even try to change their minds.

To be honest I don't really know enough about the rules of how they are allowed to tell people about Team America. If he's only allowed to out himself as being in it then it doesn't make much sense as I don't see how it could help. If he could hint vaguely at other members the non TA HGs have such a negative opinion of Donny they probably wouldn't even believe him. If he could just flat out name Derrick and Frankie there may be more of a chance they believe him but I still don't think it would save him this week. But perhaps it could hurt their games so if he wanted to be spiteful and try to take them down with him on his way out then he could do that if allowed. I wish there was more readily accessible info on how revealing works and even if it's different rules for revealing in the BB house and in the Jury House.


Tanbucket1 said...

Totally agree. It is their game to play. We like Donny too but production needs to stay out of it

Angela said...

I don't think Christine has ever peeled a potato before

Tony Akinremi said...

I don't mind if production is trying to help Donny. I figure they would do the same thing for Derrick and Frankie just to keep the TA thing going. Donny not t he big a target as a Caleb or Cody could turn into. Sadly we have to see a Donny eviction before we can see these knuckleheads start playing the game.

I'm hope for a Derrick Donny f2 but if that doesn't happen then Derrick and either Cody or Caleb.
