Big Brother 14, Episode #23 – We Break Up Just to Make Up!

Hello Readers!

Well, this episode of BB 14 made me scrarch my head for a second before I said to myself, “Hello!   This is a reality show!”  I keep thinking why do people continue to trust what other players say?  I guess when you’re caught up in the moment, some of your common sense goes out the window.  What am I talking about? Well, Readers, read on and you’ll find out!

The show began with the continuation of the Soak Up the Sun Competition.  Joe let go of his swing first, making him the proud winner of whatever punishment the Twitter viewers voted for.  This punishmemt was better than I thought it would be.  He had a 24-hour hula hoop boot camp, where he had to use a hula hoop whenever a song played over the loud speakers until it stopped.  It was sooooo much better than Frank’s 24-hour chum baths. It took an hour and fifty-six minutes for Ian the Avenger to out-swing the other players and win the HoH spot this week.

There were mixed feelings about Britney’s eviction.  Ian felt aweful and unsafe now that Britney was backdoored from the BB House.  He thought that Britney was voted out because of her loyalty to him.  Dan, on the other hand, was bitter-sweet about Britney leaving.  He said he was going to miss her because she was a great person, but he happy because it was one less person he had to go through to get the $500 000.

The show then flashed back five hours before the live show aired.  Dan wanted to smooth things over with Shane just in case Shane won HoH so Dan would not find himself on the block.  Dan said all the things that Shane wanted to hear, and Shane fell for it.  Where’s Britney when Shane needs her most? Oh, yeah, she was going to out the door soon, so I guess her help would no longer be appreciated.  Dan felt good about how things went with Shane because now he was in the middle of two alliances in the House, and they both thought Dan was still loyal to them.  Dan affirmed in the Diary Room thar his one and only true loyalty was to himself, no matter what happened in the game.

Flashing forward to the present, the houseguests were trying to see how to get in good with their new HoH.  If you don’t remember, Ian was the only one who voted for Britney to stay in the House.  Dan has secretly turned his back on his alliance with Frank and Jenn, and is planning to try to get in good with Ian and the Quack Pack.  Danielle and Shane were talking about who they thought Ian would nominate.  Shane told Brintey of the deal he made with Ian at the end of the HoH Competition.  Ian promised that Shame and Danielle would both not be nominated or backdoored this week if Shane eliminated himself.  Frank and Joe hoped that Ian would target someone else because everyone voted for Britney to leave, and the two of them have been on the block just about every week.

Ian called the former Quack Pack together to have a meeting.  He unveilled his nominations for the week, being Frank and Joe, and threw up the idea to mend their alliance.  Since the other members didn’t want to be in Frank or Joe’s shoes, they jumped on board with Ian’s idea.  The Quack Pack is back, y’all!

Frank wanted Ian to hear his plea not to be nominated, so he went to Ian to try and get him to see his point of view.  Ian told Frank he should sweat a bit, probably because of what happened between them last week.  Frank told Ian that Dan didn’t have his back, and that they should make a Final Two deal.  Ian thought about this idea because Frank was not allowed to compete in the next HoH as one of the punishments of the Draw Something PoV competition. 

When Ian was alone, he found Pandora’s Box had made another apperance in the House for the HoH to open.  This time, it was a Christmas scene.  The card said that if he opened Pandora’s Box, he would have the best Christmas ever.  Ian didn’t take too long to decide that he wanted to open the Box, not knowing if it was truly a good or bad thing to do.  Well, it was an amazing decision for Ian o make.  He got so many things he wanted, along with $1 000.

It was one of the worst times of the year for the rest of the houseguests, thanks to Ian’s decision and Pandora’s Box.  Instead of being showered with gifts and money, they were visited by Jesse Clause.  Yes, it was time for former BB houseguest, Jesse’s, annual visit.  Gifts were handed out by Jesse.  Not great ones like Ian was getting, but organic food that most of them didn’t like.  Oh, and Jesse was more of a taker than a giver by also removing all of the junk food from the BB House.  Jesse pretty much made everyone, except Ian, a Have-Not for the week. 

At the HoH Meeting, all of the House’s suspicions were confirmed.  Ian indeed named Frank and Joe as the nominees for the week.  No surprise there! Frank said he was going to do everything he could to stay in the House longer.  Joe yelled he was going fight as hard as he could to stay as well. 

What is going to happen this  week?  Will Frank or take themselves off the block?  Will the Quack Pack stay strong this time? Wil Dan continue to snowball the houseguests?  Check back onto my blog to find out!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 14, Episode #20 – Ian’s Coming Out of His Shell

Hello Readers!

I’m still reeling from my last BB post.  I’m also upset that Frank is still on the House after having a double eviction night where he should have left!  Then Ian came out of the woodwork as a force Frank now has to deal with…it’s crazy!  In this post, we find out how the House moves on from Boogie’s exit, and the fallout it potentially causes.  Let’s see how everything plays out!

Britney has to play Ian’s bodyguard against Frank’s fury over Boogie’s departure.  It was getting to the point where Frank was yelling at Ian, and Ian was trying to stand his own ground against Frank’s attacks.I guess Frank is taking a page out of Willie’s playbook.  Remember what happened to him, Frank!

Frank was trying to get Shane on his side again.  He realized he was now alone in this game.  He wanted to split Shane and Britney up because Frank doesn’t trust Britney and wants her out of the House.  Frank lied to Shane, blaming Boogie’s leaving the game on Dan.  Frank also went so far as to say that if he wins HoH that he would nominate either Joe and Dan or Dan and Britney dependant on why Ian tried to get rid of him.  Frank still doesn’t understand why Ian would make a decision like this, unless there was pressure put on him from either Britney or Dan.  Frank still can’t trust them.

Shane let Britney in on what Frank told him, and they became worried about Frank being a force to be reckoned with.  Britney decided it would be best for both of them to make a deal with Frank just in case he does win HoH this week.  Britney then spoke with Frank.  She made a deal with Frank to work together if he is HoH.  Britney secretly hoped she wouldn’t have to keep this deal because she doesn’t trust Frank.

This week’s HoH Competition seemed as though it was rigged.  Holes in Strings had the houseguests using strings to get a ball up a board with holes in it.  After a ranking round, the houseguests competed two at a time up the board.  The winner moved on to the next round.  The winner would be the player who kept advancing through the rounds and beat everyone.  Frank just kept winning round after round until he won the whole competition.  The houseguests just couldn’t believe Frank’s luck, and it seemed too easy for him to win.

Britney went to Frank to solidify their deal.  After a lot of talking, Frank came up with two people to nominate.  Even though she really wanted Frank out of the House, Britney reluctantly agreed to have Dan and Danielle go up on the block.

When Frank went up to his HoH Room, he found Pandora’s Box waiting for him.  He read a card that said if he chose to open Pandora’s Box, he could win $10 000.  After some debate, he decided to open it, thinking the money was better than what could befall the rest of the House while he was in there.  Out of the many boxes in the room, he could only choose three of them.  I guess Frank’s luck ran out because he chose boxes that held $1.05, $7.11 and $3 333.33.  He then had to remain in this room for one hour, separating him from the rest of the houseguests and whatever fate they were going to face.

Luckily for the houseguests, their fate wasn’t too bad.  They had to collect fifty cents in change that fell from the sky in the BB backyard and take it to the claw machine.  Within this machine, the cube with the question mark on it was replaced with a golden Veto ball.  The player that was able to remove this ball from the machine would be able to be a secondary Veto at the Veto Ceremony.  This is a lot of power to have this week, and since Frank was at the healm, everyone wanted to win it to possibly influence Frank’s nominations and Veto choice.  Dan showed his true competative nature, shoving anyone getting in his way, and trying to make people think he won it.  All of his work was for nothing as Ian, coming even more out of his shell, won this coveted prize.

Once Frank was released, they caught up with each other, explaining what they did during their time apart.  Even though Frank doesn’t trust him, he took Ian to his HoH Room and told him about his plan for nominations.  Ian told him to do what he wanted, trying to make Frank not want to put Ian up only to take himself off the block or to backdoor him. 

Britney then took her minion aside, and discussed what Frank told him.  Britney wanted to try to take Dan off the block.  In the Diary Room, Ian confessed he was not sure if having Frank or Dan in the House was beneficial to his overall game.  He, along with the rest of the House were worried about what Frank would decide where nominations were concerened.

At the Nomination Ceremony, Frank ravelled to the houseguests his decision.  He chose to go along with his original plan and put Dan and Danielle up on the block.  His reason was the most honest of anyone’s this season.  He said it was payback for Boogie and Ashley leaving.  Frank then went on to say that Dan wanted Frank out the House, so he had to strike now while he could.  Danielle was just a person of circumstance.  In other words, it’s punishment for being so closely aligned with Dan, but not the target.  Everyone knew that honour was all for Dan.

Joy, oh joy.  Another week with Frank as HoH makes me so happy.  No, Readers, I’m not doing back flips.  Frank needs to go, houseguests!  He’s going to win this game if he doesn’t leave soon.  Even though I don’t agree with his tactics, my fingers and toes are are crossed for Dan to come through this week and to win this game.  I do have to tip my hat to Ian as he has seriously stepped up his game and is someone the other players have to now watch out for.  Maybe he has a bit of luck on his side, but I thought he was out the door a while ago because he is so awkward within himself.  How will Ian and Dan’s luck and BB skill play out for the rest of this week? Will Frank be able to finally get his nemesis, Dan, out of the House?  Only way to find what happens is to follow my blog!

Until my next post, Readers!
