Big Brother 16 Wrap Up: Team America Missions

Big Brother 16 Twist
Team America
Team America Members were chosen by America. The first Member of the team was Joey. However, she was evicted Week 1.
She was replaced with Donny and then Derrick and Frankie were added to the Team.
Each week they were given Missions by America to complete. If they were successful, each would receive $5,000.
Team America ended in Week 12. Below is a summary of their missions:
Mission 1:
Spread a rumor that a current Houseguest is related to a previous Houseguest.
They began the rumor that Zach was Amanda Zuckerman's cousin.

     Mission Completed

Mission 2:
Try and get someone that's a physical threat nominated.
They decided that Amber was a physical threat and she was nominated.

     Mission Completed

Mission 3:
Get 2 HG to argue during the Nomination or POV Ceremony or have one rant for 20 seconds.
They encouraged Zach to do the deed for them. Although he gave a "rant" during the nomination ceremony, it was not long enough. They then encouraged him to target Amber with a rant during the POV ceremony. He did and since it was longer than 20 seconds, they won the Mission.
There was a lot of controversy surrounding this Mission. Fans were outraged that Amber was verbally targeted for this Mission.
Team America said they passed the Mission. However, Big Brother showed the TV audience they didn't. I included this as a Mission completed in their total earnings.
     Mission Completed

Mission 4:
Vote against the majority of the house and publicly accuse 2 other Houseguests for the vote.
Donny felt publicly accusing someone of the vote was out of character for him. He felt it would look too suspicious and effect his long term game. He declined to do the Mission.

     Mission Declined

Mission 5:
Work together to convince someone to go On the Block as a pawn and then get them evicted.

     Mission Declined

Mission 6:

Hide a favorite piece of clothing from each Houseguest. Then get 3 Houseguests to participate in a Watch group for 24 hours.

     Mission Completed

Mission 7:
Make up their own mission. Although Donny wanted the Mission to involving saving him from the block or from eviction, they did a Big Brother Broadway Play instead.
America voted on whether they passed or failed the Mission. The results were given to Team America, in code, during the Live Eviction show.
     Mission Overwhelmingly Failed

Mission 8:
Keep the Houseguests up all night looking for a rodent.
Frankie and Derrick pretended to see a mouse and keep the Houseguests up until 6am looking for it.

     Mission Completed

Derrick and Frankie each earned $25,000 each and Donny earned: $20,000

Big Brother Spoiler: Who won Part 2 Final HoH

Big Brother Spoiler
Final Week
Who won Part 2 HoH?
Derrick and Victoria competed in Part 2 of the Final HoH.
Derrick won. Or according to him,"smoked it".
Victoria took 30 minutes to complete the competition, but was correct on her first try.
The competition required them to put the eviction night nominees in order, while scaling a wall. If they dropped one of the Houseguest plaques, they would incur a 60 second time penalty.
They did not compete side by side, but instead one at a time. Therefore, neither knew how the other did until the time reveal.
Congratulations to Cody and Derrick who will now compete in the Final HoH. The winner of the final round will decide who will join them to face the Jury as the Final 2.
Derrick and Cody both say they are taking each other. I had my doubts, but it does appear sincere.
And it's now official - Victoria has never won an individual competition. And yes, I know she got the Veto, but she did not win the competition - Caleb did.
I was reviewing my preseason notes the other day and under Derrick's I wrote"he is non-threatening and will stay under the radar. I really like him and hope he aligns with Cody". Funny how things can change in the course of 13 weeks. And as they say... careful what you wish for.

Big Brother Spoiler: Final HoH Part 1

Big Brother Spoiler
Final HoH . Part 1

In week 13, we finally get an endurance competition to watch on the Live Feeds.

The Houseguests were standing on a small platform while holding a bar directly in front of them, attached to a hang glider. The wall would tilt forward and then back, making their reach farther. And what would an endurance competition be without a little water? Let it Rain. Let it Rain. Let it Rain.

We don't know the exact time the competition began, but I would estimate Victoria lasted 30 minutes.

As soon as she dropped, Derrick told Cody he would hang for "a couple and then jump off". And 15 minutes later, Derrick stepped off, making Cody the winner for Part 1.

And with that, the Endurance Competition was about as exciting, as this season has been.

Victoria falls off after approximately 30 minutes
Derrick steps off

Cody wins Part 1 of the Final HoH

Big Brother Poll: Who do you hope are the Final 3?

Big Brother Spoilers: Final 4 Nominations and POV Winner

Final 4 Smaller Table
Big Brother Spoiler
Final 4 Nominations and POV Winner
Week 13
The Live Feeds were blacked out for the Final 5 eviction; HoH; Nominations and POV. However, there was a 5 minute feed leak and we saw Derrick won the HoH.
When the feeds returned after the West Coast airing tonight, we saw Cody had his key in the Memory Wall which meant Derrick nominated Victoria and Caleb.
We also learned Cody won the POV and he will have the sole vote on who to evict tomorrow night during the Live Eviction episode. This will take them to the Final 3 and the beginning of the 3 part Final HoH competition will begin.
Cody confirms he plans to evict Caleb and he and Derrick will drag take Victoria to the Final 3.
The 3 Part Final HoH Competitions
Part 1:
All 3 Houseguests will compete. The Winner will advance to Part 3.
The competition is traditionally endurance and shown on the Live Feeds.
Part 2:
The 2 that lost Part 1 go head to head in traditionally a physically competition.
The Winner will advance to Part 3.
Part 3:
The Winners of Part 1 and Part 2 face off in a live Q and A competition.
The competition is generally about the Jury Members.
Example: Did Donny say he'd rather (A) Be Loved by America and Lose or (B) Be Hated by America and Win.
The Winner of Part 3 then decides who is evicted, leaving the Final 2 Houseguests.

Big Brother Spoiler: The Final 4 and HoH Winner

Big Brother Spoiler
The Final 4 and HoH Winner
Although the feeds are blacked out, a feed leak came through today at 11:54am.
Frankie is in fact gone and the Final 4 are Caleb, Cody, Derrick and Victoria.
Derrick is the new HoH. It's unknown who he nominated. Victoria seemed very nervous about the POV, so I am taking a guess that she is one of the nominees.
They were dressed and ready to play in the POV, but had not yet played.
The winner of the POV will decide who is evicted, as they will be the only one not on the block. 
If Derrick wins POV then the only Houseguest not on the block, will cast the sole vote to evict.
