The house is really being silly, though. They're all acting like they are afraid he will snap at any moment and physically attack people. It's all nonsense. They're calling him a bully, but it's all based on his imposing physical presence. He hasn't acted aggressively toward anyone. He's just extremely paranoid about the game. I actually feel bad for him.

the same type of comments are being made about caleb's obsession over amber online. is caleb acting emotionally immature and delusional? sure, he is. but has he done anything to lead someone to believe he's violent or a threat? no way.

but, if you read online comments, people are calling him a stalker, and acting as if amber is in imminent danger - way overblown.

Devin is one of the HOH's for this week. This will not be a trainwreck -- said nobody ever!

(Amber is the other HOH)

a predictable week 2 power shift if amber remains hoh, fun to watch unfold.

if devin is left as hoh? you're right, this week will be a hot mess! this is shaping up to be an enjoyable season.

A whole week with Devin HOH. Sigh. Oh well, I guess the cockier that he gets, the more fun it'll be to watch him fall. Hopefully Brit can stay somehow. PaoPao is useless and will just be the pawn every week until she's no longer needed.

My best case scenario would be that the battle of the block would remove Devin from HOH & one of the remaining people on the block would win the power of veto so Devin can be backdoored.

Amber nominated Nicole and Hayden
Devin nominated Paola and Brittany.
Nicole and Hayden won the battle of the block so Amber is no longer HOH.

devin wants brittany to go this week, the rest of the squad aren't convinced it's the best vote. caleb told devin it was personal (against brittany), and devin agreed. then, devin said caleb is being infuenced by his talks with amber...boom! devin goes into freak-out mode.

a little later, when caleb and devin talk alone, and devin says the alliance is over. caleb says fine, then your going home next week. frankie is doing damage control, trying to hold the squad together without exposing them, while the house watches.

july 4th fireworks at the bb house!

What were his sins? What was the mtg about? Why are hg's creeped out by Devin? Lost about what is going on...

IIRC, he confessed that it was his idea to nominate Donny.

He's gets very excited and paranoid in conversation. Coming from a man his size is apparently intimidating to people. I think they're cowards and the fear is a form of hysteria.

It's all tied in with the game, of course, and people are using this as an opportunity to realign themselves in the game. But, so far I haven't seen anyone self-aware enough to acknowledge that fact.

most of the intimidation is felt by the ladies, from both devin and caleb. when anyone mentions "going with the house", it means "doing whatever devin and caleb want so we aren't their targets (until we see an opportunity to get them out)".

a couple of other notes from last night's fireworks:
  • caleb was tearful (again?) over the holiday, saying he was sad remembering friends he lost in the service. next, he asked frankie tell the rest of the house how sad he was, so they'd be careful of what they said while he was sad!? clearly a play for sympathy, but frankie does it anyway. a repulsive attempt to manipulate the house with sympathy for caleb.
  • caleb borrowed a shirt from cody, and returned it unwashed. caleb also wore the outfit on the live show that cody said he was wearing (glasses, shirt). when derrick and cody were playing chess (as christine watched), cody made it clear to derrick he was over caleb, and was ready to make his feelings known. derrick wisely calmed him down, saying it was too soon. cody now has a short fuse, ready to explode on caleb.
  • jacosta has a talk with devin, where he denied he was in an alliance with caleb (after frankie had told jacosta the opposite during the fight, while doing damage control trying to hide the squad). devin then admitted he had told caleb about amber's confession of a lack of interest in caleb, and amber denied it to caleb when confronted. he felt caleb and amber's talk in the hammock last night, rehashing these issues, contributed to devin's blow up.

When 2 of the guys were playing chess, one told the other one that Devin told Nicole & Hayden that they were safe because he convinced Paola to throw the battle of the block competition because he really wants Brittany to go home. It looks like if Brittany doesn't win the power of veto, she may be going home.

pov players: devin, pow pow, britt, amber, zach, derrick
winner: devin

the plan was devin taking pow pow off the block since he promised her safety if she threw the bob comp (so he would be hoh) - he would put up victoria as a replacement. instead, he's trying to deal with brittany to take her off (breaking his promise to pow pow).

caleb and zach are talking about devin being mad at zach for wanting to keep brittany, and now devin is turning around and trying to deal with brittany, without talking to the rest of the sqaud first. they think hoh has gone to his head (and nobody saw that coming! ).

They did say he won, but then right before the commercial break Julie said they had to review the footage because there may have been a foul. When they came back to the house Julie announced that Cody's foot landed on the ground before he hit the buzzer and Devin was named HOH.

did anyone notice devin walked directly off set towards the house following julie announcing cody as winner? i wonder - was it devin that reported the foul, making himself the winner?

I doubt Devin could even see Cody from were he was. And it was a bam-bam finish between the two, so his eyes would have been on the balance beam and the button.

So Devin promised to use the veto on PaoPao for throwing BotB. Then promised to use it on Brittany. Victoria was the likely replacement nominee. Now, he's thinking of putting up Zach. Dude's all over the place. At one point, BS was down to 7 members leaving out Devin. Now it seems to be at 5 excluding Zach, Cody, and Derrick.

you have described the past 12 hours on point and succinctly.

devin has been the architect of this roller coaster, flip-flopping mess, only a brief consultation with a few in his alliance. frankie appears to have thrown zach under the bus, along with derrick, and cody (it could be a rouse).

when's the pov ceremony? this could be an interesting few days!

yes, they met in the back yard and later in the storage room, talking about being picked, the money, forming an alliance, and wondering about the tasks.

they all were thrilled, derrick especially - he was out of character compared to what we've seen until now, excited and talkative.

Devin keeps getting better and better. Now that he thinks he as squashed his beef with Brittany he realizes he has a crush on her and has let it be known. Awkwardness ensues.
