derrick levasseur big brother 16 grandfather dies 'Big Brother 16': Derrick Levasseur's grandfather dies; second death news in a weekMore sad news out of the “Big Brother 16” house. Warning: Spoilers ahead from the live feeds.

Around 7:45 p.m. PT Friday (July 25), Derrick Levasseur came out of the diary room having received word that his grandfather has passed away. This is the second grandparent death for the houseguests in a week’s time, with Frankie Grande being informed of his grandfather’s death this past Wednesday.

The houseguests were quick to comfort Derrick, though he soon retired to the have-not room to be by himself. He later told Hayden that he came to play the game for his wife and daughter, so he’s going to stay in the house.

As for the Power of Veto competition, which should be taking place later today, the six players are HOH Frankie and his nominees Jocasta and Victoria, plus Donny, Hayden and Christine. The plan this week is still to backdoor Caleb, though the guys running the house (mostly Frankie and Derrick, a little Cody and Zach) might also take this opportunity to get Amber out.

I know which one of those two I’d target and it ain’t Amber. But we’ll see how it plays out. Check back later here at Zap2it for the Power of Veto results. Or you can sign up for the live feeds to follow the action for yourself.
