Last night’s Big Brother show gave us the opportunity to watch the goings on during the double eviction. When Dan won the HOH, he immediately targeted Ian. Everyone was on board to get Ian out of the house, but as we know, Ian won the POV. Dan then wanted to evict Shane, but Shane’s stalker Danielle talked Dan out of it. Dan ended up replacing Ian with Danielle so that Joe would be voted out of the house.
So now this whole game comes down to what is Ian thinking. Ian knows that Dan put him on the block. I don’t think he was convinced he was on the block as a pawn. Ian also clearly saw that Dan protected Jenn by not putting her up against Joe.
I think we have all come to believe that Shane is just hanging out in the BB house with very little game play. That could be true, but even though he doesn’t seem to “love” Danielle, he still has her caught in his net. She saved him during the double eviction. Could this be his plan or is it just dumb luck?
Danielle will very soon have to choose which of her alliance she really trusts. Will she stick with Shane or will she follow behind Dan? From a non-game standpoint, who would you choose? Yep, you betcha…Shane.
Of all the house guests, Jenn seems to be the most clearheaded. She sees that Dan is manipulating the game. Of course, she’s helpless to fight against him.
What can I possibly say about Dan? He is the consummate BB player. Don’t forget that none of the HG’s that vote on jury will see how Dan manipulated everyone until after the game ends. He definitely would be on the “evil” team in a good versus evil show. When he threatened Ian before the vote that he would “rip his head off”, Ian should have heard alarms ringing in his head.
We were able to see the HOH competition on the TV show last night also. This competition involved knowing what day certain things happened. Yep, this was a no-brainer for our photographic memory man Ian, but there was a catch. Instead of writing the number down, the HG’s had to roll a ball into the correct slot. Fortunately for Ian, he was pretty good at this. The winner of the HOH came down to either Ian or Shane, with Ian winning. After watching the whole show, I would have rather seen Shane win this HOH. He definitely would have gone after his buddy Dan because Danielle told him that Dan wanted to target him during the double eviction.
As mentioned in my previous blog, Dan talks Ian out of putting him onto the block. Instead, Ian nominates Jenn and Shane. He tells them that the Veto will decide all, which is pretty much true.
We also know from the previous spoiler that Shane wins the POV and will pull himself off the block. This is Ian’s chance to get rid of his biggest competitor and backdoor Dan. If he doesn’t get that accomplished this week, I’m thinking that Dan is going to walk away with the money once again. I’m pretty sure that Shane would vote Dan out so even if Danielle doesn’t vote for Dan to be evicted, the final vote would be up to Ian. Ian will win Big Brother if he gets Dan out of the house on Thursday.
IMO, if Ian does not put Dan on the block, he doesn’t deserve to win Big Brother. It’s do or die Ian…please don’t let us down!
Happy Monday all! Bloggergal
