'Big Brother 16' Recap: 'Who made it to the Final Seven…The Groundskeeper or the Small Town Girl?'

By Chris Howcroft,

Thursday night's show featured another live eviction, as well as the crowning of a new HOH for the week. I’m thinking Donny is going home tonight, but as you know in this game, you never know for sure.

Nicole and Donny accept their circumstance

Nicole and Donny sit outside and talk about what they are going to do. They understand that one of them is going home this week. Donny says they are going to have to enjoy these next few days. Nicole hears that the target is Donny and is trying to figure out how to stay. Donny fears that TeamAmerica is his only hope and they are not as strong as he would like them to be. It seems at this moment Donny should be leaving, but votes and opinions change by the minute.

TeamAmerica staying strong?

Frankie is paranoid of the Christine/Nicole relationship because he fears that Nicole is going to be coming after him. He tells Derrick that he preferred Donny to stay, and not Nicole. Frankie is looking out for the TeamAmerica alliance. Frankie is pushing Caleb to help him send Nicole home. He is terrified of the Christine/Nicole friendship. They find out that they will discover if they accomplished the entertaining America mission by the password “apple pie.” They find out right before the live show that they did not accomplish their mission this week.

‘The Detonators’ contemplate their options

Caleb and Derrick discuss on what the best move is for the alliance this week. It seems that the entire alliance is going back and forth on who to send home this week. They have a meeting in the HOH room about what to do.

Derrick describes this situation as a “lose, lose.” Caleb and Frankie are leaning to evict Donny, while Cody seems more on board to get rid of Donny. Derrick seems to be still on the fence about what to do this week.

Live Eviction…Who makes it to the final Seven?

Before the live eviction, we see the HG get clips from their friends and loved ones. We also find out what Christine’s husband thinks of the flirting between Cody and Christine. The husband feels like she has crossed a few boundaries and the rest of the family does not like what she is doing. We see the perspective from Cody’s family. Cody’s dad says that he is flirty in nature and it will be an interesting finale night.

Host Julie Chen tells us an hour before the show went live, Caleb and Frankie tried to flip the house and get everyone to keep Donny safe. Donny and Nicole give their final speeches before the HG vote to evict. It looks like their plan did not work because TeamAmerica loses their first member as Donny is evicted from the house 5-0.

Donny is emotional when talking to Julie outside the house. He says he feels a little let down by the TeamAmerica alliance. He admits that his social game was not very strong and he didn't have too much in common with the younger HG.

Endurance competition for the next HOH

The competition is called “Sloppy the Snowman.” The must fill up a snowman head with liquid and remove the coal from the head. They must run back and forth down an ice/snow path. Many of these HG are losing their balance and I have a feeling that there are going to be several wipeouts during this competition.

We find out at the end of the episode that next Thursday is going to feature another live double eviction. We find out this Sunday night who wins this endurance competition and is the next HOH!
