Big Brother 14, Episode #18 – Ian a Master-mind?

Hey Readers!

I’m excited about giving you the scoop in this episode.  There was so much happening between he houseguests, Ian master-minded putting Boogie and Frank on the block together, and then the Veto Competition happens…I know, I know.  Let’s just get to it!

Boogie and Frank were still wondering how they wound up on the block, and, more importantly, who put them there.  They both think it was Dan or Britney who master-minded this coup, but low and behold, it was their “loyal pal” Ian who was behind it all. 

They went to Shane to find out some information, and Shane told them he heard the two of them were gunning for him, so he felt he had to strike first.  When asked where he heard this from, he did not give up his source.  With his swift wit, Shane came up with the idea to throw Britney under the bus for his decision to put them up for eviction, telling them that she was pressuring him to make a big move.  Way to hide under Britney’s skirts, Shane! 

Shane then let Britney in on his encounter with Boogie and Frank.  She was livid with him.  She had to then go to Boogie and Frank to do damage control for Shane’s blunder.  Boogie then went fishing for more information with Britney.  The boys now placed the blame for their predicament on Dan. 

Britney then let out her frustrations on Shane, pretty much telling him he should have been a man and owned up to his decisions instead of pointing the finger at her.  Shane then whinned about having to get his hands dirty.  Wake up, Shane!  Remember what reality game show you signed up for? It was Big Brother.  You may have to get your hands dirty once in a while.  Suck it up, man!

Boogie and Frank then move onto Dan with their investigation.  They told him they were upset they felt like they looked like fools to he rest of the House.  Dan, of course, denied telling Shane what he heard.Boogie then had Britney and Shane join their party to get the real story.Britney asked Boogie and Frank straight out if they were coming after Shane and herself.  They did their song and dance to avoid any blame for making this comment.  Britney commented in the Diary Room she was surprised Boogie didn’t remember telling Ian he was gunning for Shane and Britney.  This would have saved Boogie a lot of time if he had.  Since Dan still not devulge his source, Boogie and Frank decided that Dan was indeed the one behind their nominations.

I wanted to be a part of this week’s Veto Competition.  Candy World was the name of the game.  The HoH, the Nominees, along with Jenn, Ian amd Ashley had five minutes to look around the delectable displays of sugary delight.  For each round, they then had to guess how many of a certain type of candy was on each display.  For each round they won, they earned a lollypop.  The first person to earn three lollypops won the game and the Power of Veto.  Once again, to my dismay, Frank saves his butt from eviction and won this competiotion.

Boogie saw the trouble he was in and began to get to work to change his fortunes.  His plan of action: rally the troops against Dan.  He gathered the Floaters and presented his pitch about Dan being a bigger threat to them in this game than he was.  They should then pressure Shane to name Dan as the replacement nominee for Frank.  By getting the Floaters on his side, Boogie figured he then had the numbers to boot Dan out the door.  He also presented his plan to Britney and and Shane.  He tried to appeal to Britney’s sympathies by telling her he and Frank no longer blamed her for the nominations, even resorting to tears at one point, to sell his idea to her.  Britney was not as gullible as Boogie thought.  She didn’t fall for Boogie’s tears.

Boogie then decided to work on Shane man-to-man.  He told Shane that Dan was dangerous, and how Dan will win the game if he remained in the House.  Boogie’s strategy was this: if he was he last person to speak to Shane, that he would be able to influence Shane enough to get Shane to go along with his plan.  While this was happening, Britney was getting worried about the amount of time Boogie was spending with Shane alone.

At the Veto Ceremony, Frank took himself off the block.  Shane then had to name a replacement for Frank.  Everyone in the House was a bit shocked to hear his replacement for Frank…it was Jenn!  I guess Shane figured no one would really vote for Jenn with Boogie being on he block with her.  Boogie was upset that his plan failed.  Jenn was also upset about her nomination, and she was now fired up and ready to really start playing the game.  Why start now, Jenn!  All you have to do to make it throught this eviction is to sit tight and keep your mouth closed.  Please don’t cause any waves, or it will be your butt out the door, not Boogie’s!

This episode was a whole lot of back of back and forth between the BB players.  Poor Dan, getting blamed for Ian’s rouse.  I hope Ian can keep himself under wraps for a little bit longer.  I have my fingers and toes crossed for Boogie to be the packing his bags in the next episode.  Come back to find out if Ian’s deception is successul.

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!
