Advertisements Derrick would've taken Cody because he knew that he could beat him. Cody took Derrick knowing that he would lose. He wasn't sure that he could beat Victoria and losing to Derrick is a lot more respectable than losing to Victoria. Also, I don't think the casting department is the problem. The producers are looking for certain types and have the final decision. The same group cast a great group for Big Brother Canada last year. Strong females, multiple masterminds, etc.
