On last night’s Big Brother we had another great double eviction show. I sort of wish they did that every week. Frank and Joe both getting evicted was not a big shock. Hallelujah! Frank is finally gone. He left like a punk. He seemed to think that because he had devoted so much time to getting on the show that everyone should just let him win. His social game sucked. His only hope was to win all the challenges to keep himself safe. While he did a pretty good job of that, his domination of the challenges finally came to an end when he was outsmarted by Ian and his reverse induction strategy. The exciting part was Dan’s brief HOH where he nominated not only Ian (who he really wants out despite his bogus final two agreement) and Danielle. I was shocked about the Dani nomination and she seemed to think she was going home. Ian and Jenn lost an opportunity to get rid of her there but both of them are currently playing Dan’s game. Very late last night there was an HOH competition. Keep reading if you want the spoilers on the game and the outcome.
The HOH comp was a one where you had to know what day in the house a specific event happened. The houseguests knew this ahead of time, or at least anticipated that would play into the comp. For reasons I don’t clearly understand, Ian, who knows everything about everything that happens in the house was coaching Danielle and pretty much everyone else on the facts.
Once the game started there was a small twist. You not only had to know the date, but it seems you had to roll a ball into a slot representing the correct day. Jenn again claims she “almost won” but it sounds like Shane and Ian ended up in a tie breaker. WTF? Shane doesn’t even know what day today is. How could that happen?
Ian won HOH and immediately started freaking out and pacing. When they came back in they were on a lock down and he could not get to his hammock. Ian is starting to realize he is in a game with a big money prize. He muttered repeatedly that if he can get to first or second his entire family’s life would change. He’s clearly the underdog a lot of us are rooting for. The problem is he is convinced Dan is taking him to final two. Right now Dan has a final two with everyone except Shane. He may even have one with Shane and I just missed it. Dan wants Shane gone next since Ian is HOH and he can’t get rid of him. He knows he can’t beat Ian. Dan tells Ian to put up Jenn and Shane. If Shane wins veto then Dani will be the replacement. Ian says that was his plan as well. We shall see what happens. At this point the nominations don’t really matter. EVERYONE needs to win POV or they will likely end up on the block.
UPDATE: Ian got a Pandora’s box. I think he had a choice to take a Skype from home or give the housemates Skypes from home. Whether it was his choice or not, the housemates got the Skypes. Shane’s was from his sister. Danielle’s was from her sister. Jenn’s was from her mother, who is a cancer survivor and Dan’s was from Chelsea. Ian got a Skype from Rachel Reilly. This apparently pleased him.
Dani and Dan agreed to vote out Shane this week. Shane won POV. Dani will go up. Jenn will most likely leave. The thing is, she is leaving on Tuesday. It’s a Fast Forward week. BBAD will be a recorded episode. Feeds will be down from Tuesday afternoon until???? Probably at least until after Wednesday’s live show.
I love this season. It’s been consistently exciting the entire time. Who are you hoping will win the whole thing? Who do you think will win America’s Favorite? I really like Dan, but I am pulling for Ian.
