Following Danielle’s HOH win in Big Brother 14 Episode 11, she and former coach Dan suddenly became visible for a change, and they chose to nominate Frank and Wil.
Danielle tries to justify going back on her word with Wil. He’s just the pawn. Likely story. Not to be a broken record, but rule #1 in the Big Brother house: if you really don’t want somebody going home, you don’t nominate them.
Janelle and Dan want to work with the coaches, which would include Boogie, who doesn’t want to work with anybody other than Frank because everybody else lied to him.
Ian feels even more alone than before now that the coaches have joined the game. He says he’s willing to vote against Boogie if he has to do so, or at least he realize he’s going to have to at some point as the numbers dwindle.
Danielle is joined by Shane at random for the veto competition, Frank picks Jenn, and Wil picks Ian. Despite having all of his players in the competition, Boogie is not happy because Ian and Jenn suck at competitions and pretty much in general.
Britney sees Janelle in the bathroom whispering with Frank. Here comes the paranoia. Granted, this is a conversation worth being paranoid over, but Danielle and Britney are going to take it to another level. Dan doesn’t get it, as he says Janelle has a personal vendetta against Frank that can’t be buried by one conversation.
In the veto competition, they will toss a ball to try to hit the box with the highest number or at least not the lowest number. The beauty of this game, which is largely based on dumb luck, is you don’t need to get the highest score… you just need to not score lower than everybody else.
Frank scores 20. Ian scores 3, telling us he’s going to throw it, as if it matters. Shane scores 2. Jenn scores 9. Danielle scores 4. Wil scores 6. With the lowest score in the first round, Shane is eliminated, and he receives the power of veto as his prize.
Ian scores 20. Jenn scores 6. Danielle scores 6. Wil scores 5. Frank scores 9. Wil is eliminated in the second round, and he receives a veto ticket that guarantees him to play in next week’s veto competition. He trades it for the power of veto, great logic if somebody else down the line isn’t going to just snatch that from his hands.
Jenn scores 2. Danielle scores 10. Frank scores 4. Ian scores 5. Jenn is eliminated next, and her prize is a Maui vacation. Britney is so glad that Jenn gets a vacation from all the hard work she’s been doing in the Big Brother house.
Danielle scores 9. Frank scores 9. Ian scores 4 and is eliminated. He receives the ability to live a dog’s life for 24 hours, which involves staying in a pen for a day and only going out if somebody agrees to take him for a walk on a leash. He’s looking forward to it.
Frank scores 8. Danielle scores 10. Frank’s prize is $5,000, which he for some reason trades for the power of veto. Like Wil, he believes somebody else isn’t going to want that veto. Danielle’s prize is to wear a spiritard for the week, which she obviously trades to Frank for the veto.
Boogie’s not worried. He and Will never relied on competitions in this game. They thought winning them was stupid because in most cases it is.
Ian has agreed to join an alliance with Dan, Danielle, Britney, and Shane. Their alliance name: Quack Pack. What the bloody hell is that, Ian?
Boogie has an alternative proposal: Boogie, Frank, Dan, Danielle, Britney, and Shane. Their first target would be Janelle, and with that amount of votes, they don’t need anybody else to get rid of her. He doesn’t trust Janelle, and he openly tells her that, which receives no response.
Dan, Danielle, and Ian support getting rid of Janelle, while Britney and Shane could go either way.
This new alliance’s name: Silent Six. At least it’s better than Quack Pack. I like this alliance, but I don’t get it. The biggest threats (plus Danielle) all combined. What, they’re just going to target people like Ashley (who I assume is still in the house) and Jenn (who I know is still in the house because she, uh, won a trip to Maui) for the next month?
Danielle removes Wil from the block. Janelle has been nominated in his place. She has no idea what the heck just happened.
