'Big Brother' houseguests evict Caleb Reynolds and determine Final 3
By Reality TV World staff, 09/18/2014
Big Brother's houseguests evicted Caleb Reynolds during Wednesday night's 38th broadcast of the show's sixteenth season on CBS.
Caleb, a 26-year-old adventure hunting guide from Dallas, TX who currently resides in Hopkinsville, KY, was evicted from the Big Brother house via a 1-0 vote over Victoria Rafaeli, a 22-year-old photographer from Brooklyn, NY and Holon, Israel who currently resides in Weston, FL.
With only four houseguests remaining in theBig Brother house, Cody Calafiore, a 23-year-old sales account executive from Hackensack, NJ, was the only houseguest eligible to cast an eviction vote.
Caleb and Victoria had been nominated for eviction by Derrick Levasseur, a 30-year-old police sergeant from Providence, RI who had won the week's Head of Household competition.
Caleb, Cody and Derrick had all been in a season-long alliance together in which they had pledged to take each other to the season's Final 3 and then battle it out to be the season's final HoH.
As such, Caleb had volunteered to go on the eviction block alongside Victoria after Derrick explained his initial nominations didn't matter since the winner of the subsequent Power of Veto competition would really be the one to decide who would remain on the eviction block and be voted out.
However, Caleb didn't realize Derrick and Cody had already decided they would prefer to take Victoria to the Final 3 instead. Not only has Victoria been a poor competitor in all of the season's challenges, but her weak gameplay has made her unlikely to receive any jury votes from the previously evicted Big Brother houseguests that will determine the season's winner.
Cody then won the Power of Veto competition and opted to keep the nominations the same -- setting the stage for Caleb's eviction via his sole vote. But unbeknownst to Cody, his victory was also aided by Derrick's decision to secretly throw the challenge, hoping that Caleb would blame Cody for his eviction even though Derrick had been the one to nominate him.
While he succeeded in evicting Caleb, that last part of Derrick's appeared to fail. Following his eviction, Caleb told Big Brother host Julie Chen that he was most disappointed in Derrick even though Cody sent him packing as he had considered Derrick his best friend in the competition.
