Early this morning, Big Brother 16 fans united in an effort to save their favourite player from being nominated as the replacement nominee later today.
Fans of the show know that Frankie is the sole HOH after Donny single-handedly beat Caleb and Cody in the BoTB competition that aired in last night’s episode. Since then, Frankie has made it clear that his intention is to break-up Zankie for good and name Zach as the replacement nominee.
On Monday morning, after the Team America task asked Donny, Derrick, and Frankie to take personal items from their fellow housemates and institute an all-night neighborhood watch, Zach was accused of being the saboteur for the entire seasons as the houseguests all blamed him for their missing items. Zach initially lied and said it was him, but the joke didn’t carry over and Frankie planned to use the anti-Zach sentiment as the reason for naming him the replacement nominee.
When Zach confronted him, Frankie admitted that he did plan on nominating him and that’s when fans of the show took over.
According to Big Brother rules, the HOH is forbidden from telling a nominee that they are definitively going on the block. While it is rumored that the show cancelled this rule, this didn’t prevent hoards of fans from using the “RenomRule” hashtag on Twitter in an effort to get the show’s producers attention and to save Zach from being nominated. The topic started trending worldwide and still is at the time of this writing.
Oddly, Frankie’s superstar sister, Ariana Grande also tweeted “RenomRule” and said that she thought Frankie knew about the rule and could be doing it as a master plan to save Zach while still keeping the trust of the rest of the Bomb Squad.
No word on whether the campaign is working…
