Big Brother 15, Episode #19: It’s a 2-for-1 Special!

Hey Readers!

It’s Double Eviction Night!  It’s a night on BB 15 when 2 people leave the BB House on the same night, as well as a whole week of competitions (except the Have-Not competition) are played.  These nights are so much fun to watch because the House Guests become even more, and if there’s no room for error, either.  You can really see where a player’s allegiance lies, too, as there is no real time to plan a strategy, or to try and recover from saying or doing something stupid.  It’s do or die time, and, well, someone’s gotta go!  Who were the two unlucky characters to get the boot out of the BB House?  Continue reading below and find out!

After welcoming the audience to the Double Eviction Night, Julie Chen announced that, from this point on, the House Guests that are evicted from the game will become part of The Jury who selects who will ultimately win BB 15!  Yeah, I know, 9 jury members!   Usually there are 7, but since this season started so early, I guess the producers figured they’d add 2 more members!

Now, getting to the show itself…Amanda figured she’d better start playing nice in order to save her butt from Eviction.  She went to Jessie to “reason” with her about their fight a few days ago.  Amanda even said she would support Jessie to the end of the game!  Can you smell the desperation Amanda must have been feeling in order to say that to get Jessie to change her mind?

Amanda then spoke to her secret alliance of McCrae, Judd and Andy about trusting each until the end of the game.  In the Diary Room, she confessed she didn’t truly trust Judd.  To her, he had been acting a bit shady, and this didn’t sit well with her.

Candice, Elissa and Jessie were trying to figure out ways to save Candice from Eviction.  They thought the only way to get this done would be to switch the Vote to Amanda.  Jessie went to talk to Helen to see if she could use her sway to accomplish this task.  Helen said she would need to have all of her allies on board in order to do this.

Jessie then went to her buddy, Judd, and asked if he would vote Amanda out as well.  Judd confessed in the Diary Room that if he went along with this plan, it would completely change the outcome of the game.

Helen went to her confidant, Andy with this plan.  Oh, Helen, if you only knew how close Andy was to Amanda, and that Andy squeals EVERYTHING e hears around the House to her.  Andy confessed in the Diary Room that if he did this, he would lose one of is biggest allies in the game, and that this plan may not be the best one for his game.

Candice was doing everything she could to stay.  She went back to Helen to see if there was anything she could  to change the Vote.  Candice told Helen that the House was crazy to want Amanda to stay because she’ll win if she doesn’t leave soon, and that she knew Helen had enough clout around the House to make things happen.  Helen’s weak defense was that Amanda hasn’t done anything against her.  Candice warned her it was only a matter of time until Amanda did.  Helen confessed in the Diary Room that if Amanda was to leave the House that the next big target would be her.

The show then went back to Julie Chen and the live studio audience.  Julie Chen spoke to the House Guests and told them she had good and bad news for them.  The good news was that the Jury would begin that night with the next evicted House Guest.  The bad news was that it was also a Double Eviction Night, and just because you’re on the Jury doesn’t mean you’re out of the game.

It was then time for the first Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony of the show.  Wen it was time for the nominees’ final words, Candice used her time to cuss GinaMarie out, making Julie Chen have to yell at them to stop.  Spencer thanked his family and the House Guests for the summer.  Amanda greeted her family, and said she was giving the same speech as last week.  There is no need to break down the Vote for this Eviction.  It was an unanimous decision:  Candice was evicted from the BB House, and was the first member of The Jury.

After Julie Chen spoke with Candice, it was time to start off the next week of BB 15 in one night.  Summer School was the name of the HoH Competition.  It would suck to be the HoH on a Double Eviction Night because you only hold this had position for about 40 minutes, yet you are ineligible to compete in the next HoH Competition.  You have no real time to strategize about who to nominate, and you put a large target on your back.  In this competition, the players, except GinaMaire, had to answer questions about items and events within the BB House.  They had to say whether it was more or less than what Julie Chen asked.  After just 4 rounds of play, Aaryn came out as the winner and the HoH!

Aaryn had so many voices in her ear, trying to tell her who she should nominate for Eviction.  When it was time for Aaryn to give her nominees for Eviction, Julie Chen told the House that the MVP twist was now over, so from this point on, there would be only two nominees for Eviction each week.  The House seemed relieved at this news, since they didn’t know for sure who it was for the last two weeks.  Aaryn then told the House that she chose Spencer and Jessie for Eviction.

The show then went to the PoV Competition called Nailed It!  The players (Amanda, Judd, Andy, Aaryn , Spencer and Jessie) had to find  6 different sized nails that fit into certain holes on a Veto board.  Once they found all of them and hit their buzzer, and they were put into the right holes, they would win the PoV.  If the nails were in the wrong holes and they used the buzzer, they would be eliminated from the competition. It didn’t take Aaryn too long to complete this game, winning the PoV, holding all of the power to decide who stays or goes on the block.

Before the PoV Ceremony, Aaryn was pulled aside by Helen, giving her more advise.  Yeah, Helen, you really don’t have any clout around the House.  The cameras also showed Amanda and McCrae holding each other and crying.  Was one of them going to be back-doored? Aaryn put my suspicions to rest by revealing what she was going to do with the Power of Veto.  She vetoed Jessie’s nomination, and replaced her with Judd!  She told him if she didn’t do this, she would be evicted next week.  How gracious of you, Aaryn!  You can never take any responsibility for your own actions in the House, can you?  Judd?  He was a pal of hers, as well as the rest of the House.

It was quickly time for the second Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony of the night.  Spencer thanked the House Guests, again, for the summer, and that he wanted to stay and play.  Judd told the House he loved all of them, and pleaded with them to keep him in the game.  He also said what was being said about him was wrong, and to change their minds about their vote.  It was another unanimous decision.  Judd was sent packing out of the BB House.  It was the first time this season I saw just about the whole House sad about someone leaving the game.  I say just about because Helen and Elissa were the only ones for really upset, and Judd didn’t want them to hug him.  Whoa, that’s huge, since Judd was such a nice guy.  I liked him, he was so real with the House Guests.

Well, Readers, this wraps up Double Eviction Night!  It was a crazy one, though.  I loved the Candice-GinaMarie verbal cat-fight!  I can’t wait for Gina-Marie to leave the House.  The best part about Double Eviction Nights is that , unless it’s apparent who the power players are, you never know for sure who will be the second person evicted.  Tonight was one of these nights.  Judd’s quick dismissal from the House left me with a lot of unanswered questions.  Why would Helen go after Judd?  What will happen to the House now that Judd’s gone?  Will new battle lines be drawn because Judd is gone?  We’ll find all of this out when you return to my blog for the next BB 15 episode wrap-up!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 14, Episode #25 – Bon Voyage!

Hey Readers! It’s another Double Eviction Night on BB 14. We will see if Dan was able to do what everyone in the House wasn’t able to do all summer. You know, to send Frank packing. If he is successful, please just give Dan the $500 000 right here and now. If not, maybe Frank will be thrown out during the sped-up week later on in the show. Let’s get cracking and find out what happened to the houseguests in this episode! Dan was beginning to crack a bit under the BB pressure. While speaking to Frank about Joe leaving the House this week, Dan let his backdoor plan slip a bit by suggesting the idea that there was a chance that Joe could stay. Frank was worrying about not being able to compete in the next HoH Competition because of his punishment in the Draw Something PoV Competition, but he really didn’t catch what Dan said. Lucky dog! Frank then brought up their Final Two deal. Dan tried to skip around the question. Hopefully, Frank got the message, but I think that’s very doubtful. Joe and Ian had their heads together as well. Joe wanted to make sure that he was just a pawn in Ian’s decision to use him as a replacement for eviction. Ian assured Joe that this was indeed the case, and advised Joe to just lay low and to keep his mouth shut. In the Diary Room, Ian confessed that the only person that could screw up this plan was Joe, and that he was right not to leave Frank in the game. Joe then does something that could have really hurt his chances in the game. While going to sleep, he starts talking to who he thought was Shane in the bed next to him about strategy. What Joe didn’t know is that it was actually Dan he was speaking to. This got Dan thinking how he couldn’t trust Joe, and maybe Joe should go before Frank. What if that was Frank in the bed and not Dan? Dan had some pros and cons to work out before the eviction. At the Live Vote and Eviction, Julie Chen let the houseguests in on the double evictions happening that evening. The houseguests had mixed emotions about this news. They liked the idea of having one extra person exiting the House that evening, but they didn’t like the idea that they may be that extra peraon walking out the door. Frank seemed relaxed. He gave a shout-out to Boogie, and reminded the houseguests that he wasn’t a threat because he couldn’t compete in the next HoH. Joe.joked about being a threat to anyone in the House, thanked the houseguests for the summer, and told them to vote how they felt would help them best. The vote was 3-1 to have Frank evicted! He really didn’t see the backdoor slamming into his face until Julie announced he was indeed evicted. Bon voyage, happy trails, and get a move on Frank! I couldn’t stand another week of seeing Frank’s smug face in the House, looking as though he was entitled to win the game. He really needed Boogie to play for him. One more down, four more houseguests to get through, Dan! After the short celebration, the HoH Competition, Make Your Case was played. Julie Chen read the pleas of evicted houseguests, and the players had to guess who said it. The player with the most correct answers won HoH. After breaking a three-way tie with Danielle and Jenn, Dan continued to assert his dominance in the House by coming out victorious. Dan promptly namerd Joe and Ian as his Nominees. Swimming with the Sharks was the PoV Competition. All of the players were allowed to compete since there were only six of the left in the House. They had to guide a shark fin through a maze then race back to the beginning of the platform and hit a buzzer to win. Ian blazed through the maze to save himself from eviction. Ian really knows how to pull out a win when it counts. I’m happy he won. I’m not ready to see him leave the game yet. Dan needs someone to compete against. At the Veto Meeting, Ian removed himself from the block. Dan announced that his replacement would be non other than his gal Friday, Danielle. A shocked Danielle took Ian’s seat. I thought he did this to guarantee Joe’s eviction. At the Live Vote and Eviction – Part Two, Danielle said she was not ready to leave the game and asked to be kept in the House. Joe thanked all the houseguests, and reminded them of his loyalty. The vote was 3-0 to evict Joe from the BB House. He wasn’t his Foghorn Leghorn-self. He was graceous, said his goodbyes, then left the House. Dan did it, again! This time, it was to someone who deserved it. Looking back, it wasn’t so much of a backdooring, but more of a total manipulation that Dan did on Frank. Unless Ian and the rest of the House gang up on Dan, there’s nothing to stop Dan from winning everything. The only thing Dan should be focusing on now is how to get Jury Votes, since he has had a hand in sending all of its members there so far, along with the other potential members still in the House. Tread carefully, Dan! Check back into my blog to see if Dan can indeed keep up his dominance over the rest of the House! Until my next post, Readers! Reese.

Big Brother 14, Episode #24 – Dan: The Pied Piper of BB 14!

Hi Readers!

It’s time for another BB post! It’s as if Dan, in case, we’ll call him The Pied Piper of BB 14, has worked his magic on the houseguests, leading them to their evictions from the BB House. Dan’s magic has worked especially well on Frank because he doesn’t see that Dan is trying to backdoor him out of the House! Will this Pied Piper’s flute continue to keep the House under his spell?   Read on and you’ll see!

Jenn and Danielle were wondering who this week’s target was.  They both thought it was Frank, but Jenn was getting nervous, worrying about the big move she made by taking Dan off the block.  Really, it was Dan’s move that he planted in in her head.  Frank then joined their conversation, thinking that Joe was the intended target.  Frank and Jenn have no idea about the Quack Pack is back and is about to play both of them for suckers.

Frank then has a meeting with Dan in the Storage Room.  Frank still doesn’t trust Dan, but Dan used his sweet powers of pursuasion to make Frank think he’s not the target.  Dan was then trying to convince Frank to throw the PoV competition to make sure Frank stays on the block.  Frank wasn’t sure about this plan, but he was considering it.  In the Diary Room, Dan was laughing at Frank because he was actually thinking about throwing the PoV competition knowing there was a chance he could be leaving the House this week.

Frank then started doubting Dan’s trust and was having second thoughts about throwing the competition.  He has been on the block too many times this summer.He continued to be conflicted about what he should do until this week’s Veto Competition.  In Otev: The Absent-Minded Alien, the HoH, the Nominees, along with Joe, Dan and Danielle, had to listen to a riddle Otev gave them about different departed houseguests, them find a cob of corn with the correct name on it in order for Otev’s flying saucer fuelled up to continue his journey.  The winner is the player who had all of the correct corn cobs at the end of each round, and was not the last player back to Otev.  After many rounds of the houseguests searching for corn cobs in tall grass and gooey ponds, Dan pulls off his magic and wins the PoV.

Dan and Frank discuss what he should do with the PoV.  Dan then convinced Frank that it would be a good idea to use the PoV on Jenn instead of himself.  Frank thought it was to strengthen their alliance and to keep Jenn loyal to Dan.  Dan added he would also tell her that he owed her one for her using the PoV on him last week.  Dan said he would then get Ian to put Joe up as Jenn’s replacement, then Joe would be evicted.  Dan and Frank then told Jenn and Ian the plan, keeping the rest of the Quack Pack in the dark.

At the PoV Meeting, Dan’s plan went off without a hitch.  Dan removed himself from the block, and Ian, pretending to be upset with Dan, used Joe as Dan’s replacement.  The rest of the House were scratching their heads, wondering how Dan got off the block and is now safe while Frank is still on the block.

I’m not sure how he does it, but when Dan talks, people do what he wants.  Maybe his voice is like a magical spell, or he knows mind control.  The Pied Piper even got Frank to trust him.  Frank, who has been battling against Dan for the whole summer, and doesn’t trust.  If I were in Frank’s shoes, I wouldn’t trust Dan as far as I can throw him!  I’m kind of hoping Dan wins the money because so many people are allowing Dan to do whatever he wants, or they haven’t done anything of real significance of heir own free will (example – Danielle).  We’re getting close to the end of the season, Readers.  Check back in to my blog to see if Dan can continue his control over the House, making Frank his next victum.

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 14, Episode #22 – Hell Hath No Fury….

Hey Hey Readers!

This episode of BB was amazing, at least for me it was.  It was another Double Eviction Night where two houseguests would be leaving the BB House. Frank and Joe were on the block, and Dan was setting Britney up to be blindsided by being evicted from the House.  Does Dan’s plan come to frution, or will Britney dodge this eviction?  You can find out by continuing to read this post!

Britney and Ian were shocked by what just happened.  They never expected for Dan to have tried to backdoor Britney, not this soon, anyway.  Britney then went to Dan, first to congratulate Dan on saving himself, then warned him to be mindful of how he treated people in this game.

Britney then went to work, seeking out Frank in his HoH Room.  Along with Jenn, Britney does not fault them for what had just happened.  Britney said to them she thought they did this because it was payback for Ashley’s eviction.  She also let the two of them know that she would be able to help them get further in the game if they helped to save her this week.  Britney does have the ability to help Jenn and Frank because she has Shane and Ian in her pocket.

Ian and Frank got into a yelling match over Boogie’s eviction.  Frank was calling Ian’s character out to the rest of the House, saying that Ian was sneaky, and that no one should trust him.  Ian defended himself.  Ian also mentioned to the House that anyone would be a fool to take Frank to Final Two because the Jury would vote for Frank to win.  Frank responded by saying everyone in the House already knew this, that Ian was basically wasting his breath.

Britney started a tirade on Dan.  She told anyone who would listen that Dan is willing to do anything to stay in the House, even slit the throats (figuratively speaking) of other houseuests to get to the end.  Frank heard all of this and was happy because Britney was helping to increase the size of the target on Dan’s back, taking some of the heat off of himself.

At the Live Vote and Eviction, Danielle just said how much she enjoyed playing the game, and wanted to continue playing.  Britney pretty much chewed Dan out, calling him her “Judas.”  The vote was 4-1 for Britney to be evicted.  Yeah, you would have thought that Shane would have voted for her, but I guess he figured that having Danielle on his pinky was more advantageous to him than a stronger player like Britney.

Soak Up the Sun was the next HoH Competition.  Each player had to hold onto a rope swing that rotated around a huge sun on the BB lawn in the backyard.  The player that stayed on their swing the longest would be the next HoH.  There was also a consequence for the first person who dropped off of their swing.  This punishment was decided by the viewers on Twitter.

Am I bitter about Britney’s eviction?  No.  I just think Shane had better watch his back from now on because he’s disillustioned if he thinks otherwise.  Danielle’s true loyalty is to Dan, not to him.  I can’t wait for Shane to get his wake-up call, telling him he made a mistake while he’s being stabbed in the back by Danielle and on his way to the Jury House.  How will Britney’s eviction affect the rest of the Quack Pack?  How much more damage will Dan inflict on the House?  Who will be this week’s HoH?  Find out the answers to all of these questions the next time I write about BB 14!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 14, Episode # 12 – Danielle: Loosing Grip on Power?

Hey There Readers!

I was kind of happy at first about Danielle winning HoH, but after this episode, I’m not so sure I am anymore. I mean, sure, nominating Wil and Frank, two players that are threats in this game in their own ways, but there are also bigger fish to fry around the House. She is taking advice Dan who has his own end-game, and may not be looking out for her best interests. Let’s see how Danielle handles her power on the House.

After the Nominarion Ceremony, Danielle and Wil go up to her HoH Room. Danielle was crying, sad about putting Wil up as a pwan. Wil doesn’t believe her, but he tells her that things are cool between them, just in case she decides to take him off the block.

Janelle and Dan were talking in the HoH Room about how Boogie and Frank were complaining about the nominations, as well as how they were talking strategy so blatantly in public. They were worried that the Coaches deal was going to fall through because of Frank’s continual presence in the House. They decided to try and work on Boogie to see if he would be able to get rid of Frank.

Dan took Boogie into the Storage Room to talk strategy. Boogie was upset over the fact that he looked like an idiot, may be backdoored due to how the nominations went, and how he thought Danielle felt about him. This is what really bothers me about players like Boogie in this game. They like to dish out all of the punishments in the House, but they think it’s unfair to receive any of it. It’s a game, Boogie! You can tell he was just one of those kids who didn’t play well in the sandbox. Dan tried to smooth things over by agreeing with whatever Boogie said, but also slid in the possibility of Frank leaving the House this week. Boogie was against this idea, and said that if he got the chance to win the Veto Competition, he would save Frank from eviction. Red flag waving, anyone?

Since Frank was nominated, again, and saw how guarded Boogie is of him, Ian did the first smart thing in this game. He went to Britany and Dan to see if he could work with them to save his butt. I’m not sure if you remember me writing about this in my first BB post, but this is the strategy he wanted to use before he entered the game. Britany told Ian he had to be loyal to their alliance. Ian wanted to have Frank’s safety, but the reaction he received to this idea, he then began to think that he would be safer in the House if Frank was gone.

Frank decided to talk to Janelle in the bathroom. Janelle was trying to clear some of the bad blood that was spilt between them, but in no way was she trying to be on good terms with him. Britany witnessed their exchange, and misinterpreted the situation. She thought Janelle was going against their alliance and getting buddy-buddy with Frank.

Letting her cattiness get the best of her, she ran off to complain to Danielle about what she saw instead of asking Janelle about what happened. Oh, Ladies of BB14! In order to be successful at this game, you have to play less catty and more stratigically. This fueled the suspicious feelings Danielle had towards Janelle. Dan saw this and was beginning to think that he may not be able to get rid of Frank and keep all of the Coaches together like he hoped.

At the Veto Competition, Field of Veto, the HoH the nominees, along with Wil, Shane and Jenn, had to roll a baseball on a ramp and try to score as many points as possible during each round. The person with the lowest score after each round was eliminated, and has to pick a prize or punishment. They are able to trade with another player for their prize. The winner is the person who ended up with the PoV at the end of the Competition. After many rolls and swaps, here is how the game concluded:
Frank – had to wear a “Spiritard” for a week
Jenn – won a trip to Maui
Ian – had to live a dog’s life for a day
Wil – won $5000
Shane – got a ticket to compete in the next PoV competiton; and
Danielle – won the PoV.

Boogie doesn’t like Danielle having all of the power in the House, so he decided he and Frank had to figure out how to get an “in” with Danielle in order to get Frank off the block. When he spoke to Danielle, he used the only card he knew would get her to reconsider changing her mind about Frank: the “I-Hate-Janelle” card. That sparked a charge in Danielle. Oh, Danielle, here we go again with the playing with your emotions instead of with your head strategy. Boogie then planted this seed with Dan to have it solidified in Danielle’s mind.
The Coaches then got together to talk strategy. Boogie took this opportunity to make Dan and Britany believe that Janelle couldn’t be trusted. Since Boogie was not willing to let Frank go on the block, Boogie suggested that Ashley should take Frank’s place. Janelle didn’t want more of her former players leaving the House, so after a slight pause, she said not this week. This, for some reason, put doubt in Dan’s mind about Janelle’s motives. What bothers me about Dan’s thoughts is that he is suspicious of Janelle’s motives, but he is not suspicious of why Boogie is so set against not letting Frank go to show good faith to the other Coaches.

Britany and Dan told Danielle about the meeting, trusting Boogie, how Janelle could no longer be trusted, and having Janelle backdoored. Ian, who was also present at this meeting was backing having Frank stay in the House. Even though it went against her better judgement, Britany went along with the majority on this new plan. Britany and Dan then went to Boogie to solidify the plan and to set conditions on their new alliance – The Slient Six.

At the Veto Meeting, Danielle used the Veto to remove Wil from the block, and surprised Janelle by using her as Wil’s replacement. This change in nominations also had some mixed reactions to the rest of the houseguests.

Come on, Houseguests! Boogie should not have gotten away with this plan. He has hijacked Danielle’s HoH week, and she doesn’t even realize it. Way to control the House, Danielle. Readers, they all have watched Boogie at work, yet they think they can still trust him? Un.be.leav.able. And poor Janelle! A possible backdooring. If Boogie pulls this one off, this is showing how desparate he is to get Janelle out. He’s afraid of her in this game, so he has to resort to backdooring. Really, it’s a few steps down for him. Well, Readers, come back for my next BB Post find out if Boogie’s able to pull off this scheme against Janelle.

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 14, Episode #13 – Boogie the Puppet Master

Hello Readers!

Wow! What a difference a few days, as well as a crafted scheme, makes!  It makes me shake my head every time I think about what happened in this episode.  Let me tell you what happened…

Janelle was still shocked that she was chosen as Wil’s replacement on the block.  Usually in BB history, the players put up as pawns are the ones that go home.  Wil, you were an exception to the rule.  Janelle asked Britany why she was being targeted by Danielle.  As per usual, Britany gave her the run-around, leaving Janelle with more doubts than she had before. 

Janelle then went to Danielle to see if there was any bad blood between them, and to turn things around in her favour.  Danielle told her it was because she was told that Janelle was coming after her.  Danielle said it was because she felt as though Janelle was targeting her, so Danielle really wanted to beat Janelle to the punch and get her out of the House first.  Janelle thought that there was a rat behind Danielle’s excuse, and it’s name was Boogie.

Britany was having second thoughts about going through with the plan to backdoor Janelle.  After speaking to Janelle, she still wasn’t 100% sure why it was bencficial to have Janelle out of the House.  The Silent Six convinced Britany of Janelle’s bad-mouthing and lying ways.  Britany still looked confused, and unsure of her decision.

At the Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony, Frank, still wearing his spiritard, spoke of how unfair it was that his name was dragged through the mud, and for the houseguests to keep things classy in the House should he leave.  Janelle, half-heartedly, told the players that she loved them all, and to vote how they felt.  By a vote of 8-1 (I guess Joe didn’t get the memo), the House voted to evict Janelle.  I guess this was the only “fair” way Boogie could have gotten rid of Janelle since she is such a strong player.  I’m not how many times I have said this, but this was a cheap move on Boogie’s part. I guess if Boogie can’t go head-to-head with a player this season, his only play is to backdoor his enemies.

Battle of the Bands was the next HoH Competition.  Two houseguests take turns listening to descriptions of competitions played so far this season (HoH, Coaches’, or Veto).  The first one to guess the game correctly moves on until there is a winner.  Of all the people to win, Frank comes out victorious! 

Shane, Danielle, Britany, and Dan may be in for a world of hurt this coming week. Watch your backs, guys!  Maybe they should have gotten rid of Frank, again, when they had the chance, again.  If they think are safe with Frank, they are sadly mistaken, especially with Boogie pulling Frank’s strings!

Well, that’s the end of another episode of BB!  We’ll find out in my next post BB post how Frank deals with the knowledge he was given from Boogie, and just how much puppeteering Boogie will do to make his plans a reality.

Until my next post, Readers!
