Right now, we are in a quiet time on “Big Brother 16” … at least when it comes to strategy.
The only person who really has anything to think about right now is Derrick, and he has to deal with mostly the ramifications of what happens if he doesn’t take Victoria to the final two. He’s well aware that no matter what choice he makes, he is going to make someone angry in the process. He is either going to deprive Victoria or Cody a chance at getting some money, and Victoria is now happy about it.
After she lost the second part of the final Head of Household Competition last night, Victoria had a long meltdown last night complete with tears, and went on and on saying how hurt and disappointed she was with all that has happened. She feels like she’s on the outside looking in, and she feels like Derrick led her on with not telling her about the Hitmen.
His response was about as on-the-fence as one could be. He never said to her that he would for sure take her to the end, but he said that he was not for sure going to win the final competition, that he loves both her and Cody, and he is going to have a very hard time trying to figure out which one of the two he is going to take.
For the record, we feel about 90% sure that he will take Cody. He’s not having these sort of conversations with him, and this feels like Derrick preparing to ease the backlash if and when he votes to send Victoria home at some point in the future.
