The Rules: Each week our two combatants will create separate power rankings. The ranking of the person who is voted out of the next episode will determine the number of points the two players will earn. For example, if Donny is voted out this week, Rachel will receive 3 points and Gordon will receive 2 points. At the end of the season, the person with the most points will be named the “Big Brother” Power Rankings Challenge Champion!
Last Week: Rachel called it, she had Paola in spot fifteen. Gordon has Paola in spot fourteen. So, the current score is Team Rachel 28, Team Gordon 27.
Quick Note: “Big Brother” is always going on. These Rankings were handed in Monday.
Rachel’s Score = 28
Gordon’s Score = 27
Any advice for Gordon? Drop him a line on Twitter: @gordonholmes
| 1. Derrick – As reigning HOH Derrick is safe this week, he even had one of his allies volunteer to go on the block for him. So, he only had to get blood on his hands with one houseguest. His back-door-Devin plan makes the house happy and no one thinks of this as a crazy HOH week. Question is; is Derrick using his HOH to make his game better or to do what the house wants?
|| 1. Derrick – Derrick’s having a near-perfect week. His plan to send Devin packing can only be derailed by a Devin Power of Veto win. He’s having a blast with his Team America buddies. And, he doesn’t have to wear a frog outfit.
|2. Nicole – This cute small-town girl is showing us that she is not only a fan but has a few wins up her sleeve, we expect to see a lot from this one. She nominates Donny last minute and feels badly about it and cries to him, he says it’s OK and then they make an alliance. Way to turn your cards in your favor!|| 2. Donny – Donny’s gotta be the guy everyone’s afraid to go to the end with. He’s fun, he’s funny, he’s sweet, but he can’t stick around forever. For now he’s safe, but they’ve got to keep an eye on him.
| 3. Donny – Donny is on NO ONE’S radar and he’s everyone’s BFF! He has an alliance with the people not in the bomb squad so he wont be caught in the drama!
|| 3. Amber – Am I a bad person for really hoping that Amber has a serious boyfriend waiting for her on the outside? Either way, she’s super safe. The fallout of the destruction of the Bomb Squad will probably take out Caleb and Devin, but she should be able to slink away.
| 4. Amber – I think Amber is losing her game with the girls since she’s growing closer to the boys everyday. She needs to grab some girls or other allies on her side ASAP or she’s going to be on the outs of the house.
||4. Hayden – The good news: You’re invited into the big alliance! The bad news: The big alliance is crumbling. But, no harm, no foul. Nobody’s worried about Hayden.|
| 5. Frankie – Frankie is BFF with everyone and very charming. He’s in the bomb squad but he’s also distancing himself so he won’t get caught in the fire.
|| 5. Frankie - Wait a minute…that guy’s eyes and mouth look just like teen singing sensation Ariana Grande! I know Frankie was one of the heavy hitters in the Bomb Squad, but he’s likable enough that he should be able to move on without too much heat.
| 6. Christine – Christine is good with Nicole and Hayden and in with the boys. She seems to be gaming we just want to see her step up her game in a competition.
|| 6. Amber – Superman has kyptonite, the Green Lantern has the color yellow, and Devin has people who have kids. Weird, right? Anywho, I was sure Brittany was a goner last week. But I guess with all the time between nominations and the actual vote, there’s plenty of time for people’s minds to be changed.
| 7. Cody – Cody is part of the bomb squad and also BFF with all the boys! All the girls love him and there’s NO WAY he would be considered as a veto replacement.
||7. Zach - You dodged a bullet last week, my bro-tastic friend. And, I’m betting that your nemesis Devin is on his way out of the house. What’re your next steps? Who can you trust?|
| 8. Zach – Zach is part of the bomb squad and also friends with Derrick. There would be no reason for Derrick to backdoor Zach.
|| 8. Christine – Great move by Christine on outing the Bomb Squad to her buddies before it caused them not to trust her. Whatever alliance ends up taking the lead now, I’m betting Christine will be near the top of it.
|9. Brittany - Brittany shouldn’t be put up as a replacement since she’s friends with Derrick and the boys seem to like her. Brittney still seems to not really have an alliance in the house but we see her gravitating towards Jocasta and Donny. This should keep her in the house longer since no one is going to target them.||9. Nicole – Nicole, you’ve got to put on your big girl pants and start playing like an adult. No more crying when you put “Duck Dynasty” extras up on the block. No more worrying about the ghost that haunts the CBS sound stage. Suck it up!|
| 10. Victoria – Is Victoria on this show? We’re all confused…where she’s been?
||10. Cody – Smart, likable, in shape, under-the-radar…he’s exactly who I’d be trying to get rid of at this point. I wonder if anyone else realizes that…|
| 11. Hayden – Hayden is probably safe this week but if Derrick was playing the game for himself he should use the veto to put Hayden up. Hayden isn’t in Derrick’s alliance and Hayden isn’t friends with him, so it would make a lot of sense to put Hayden up and vote out a strong guy! I like Hayden and especially with Nicole but if Derrick wants to win the game he’s got to eliminate the competition!
||11. Victoria - If she was on “Survivor,” I’m thinking they’d be calling her “Purple Victoria.”|
| 12. Jocasta – Jocasta should be safe this week. Even on the block she shouldn’t be a target since she hasn’t done anything and is friends with most everyone in the house.
|| 12. Jocasta - She’s like Pow Pow Part Deux. And like Pow Pow, she’s probably not the real target.
| 13. Caleb – Caleb volunteered to be on the block this week and then THREW THE BOB so he should go home just because of that. It blows my mind he THREW the BOB for Amber when she doesn’t even like him…you’re not being a gentleman or a hero you’re just being DUMB! You’re on the “Big Brother” Caleb not a dating show.
|| 13. Caleb – Welp, I put myself on the block and threw a challenge for you. Now you’re going to have to marry me. Seriously, I haven’t seen an unrequited love this sad since Steve Urkel was putting the moves on Laura Winslow.
| 14. Devin - Devin, Devin, Devin…what are they going to do with this one? The SMART game move for Derrick would be to keep Devin in the game so there’s a target in the house and Devin isn’t going after Derrick! SO FOR THE HOH it’s a win-win. Plus, Derrick should just get rid of Hayden since he is a strong guy too and likeable!
|| 14. Devin – OK, I’m fuzzy on the rules. Can Devin volunteer to perform in the Power of Veto competition? If not, that’s kind of messed up that he doesn’t get a chance to protect himself. That being said, it looks like he’s a goner unless he can claim that cool Ghostbuster-esque necklace.
