Among the most compelling series of events in recent BB memory, Dan flipped the game on its head and somehow managed to save himself in Big Brother 14 Episode 21 by using one of the craziest strategies I’ve ever seen. He told the truth (aside from the part where he for seemingly no reason ripped apart his closest ally, though there was a method to that madness, however unnecessary it may have seemed). It’s moves like this that separate coaches/winners Boogie and Dan from Janelle and Britney. Dan’s cold, calculating, strategic stroke of evil genius is how the game’s supposed to be played.
Ian had been playing well and was looking like a favorite to win this whole thing, but he blew it when he revealed his secret to Boogie and then proceeded to try and fail to get rid of Frank. His carelessness has come back to bite him, and he ain’t happy. He says that he will get revenge because his allegiance to Frank is now gone. Yeah, I noticed it was gone two or three weeks ago.
Britney warns Dan that it’s important to her, as a jury member, how he treats people. She then goes to talk to Frank, sarcastically saying she was responsible for Shane’s and Ian’s nominations. She was.
Shane’s put in the middle. He has to choose between his coach and the most tepid showmance ever. Joe agrees to vote however he wants.
Of course, Dan hasn’t exactly escaped this unscathed. His target, which should have been bigger than it was, is growing. If Britney’s going down, she’ll keep swinging at him, right until the very end.
By a vote of 4-1, Britney has been evicted from the Big Brother house. She seemed to be in the strongest position, but it all collapsed with just one move, her control that made her such a big threat ultimately being her downfall. The other casualty is Ian, who remains to the end a lone wolf in sheep’s clothing.
America has voted, and 51% of the voters have decided to give a punishment to the first person eliminated in this endurance HOH competition, which has them holding on ropes and going in circles. As we conclude the live show, less than 5 minutes after the competition started, Joe has already fallen. Jenn falls, too. This doesn’t look like it will last very long. Want to know who wins HOH before Sunday’s show? Check out the BB14 spoilers.
