Ian Wins Big Brother 14!

by BBBlogger on September 20, 2012

Last night’s finale of Big Brother 14 cleared up some things for me. Let’s review. We were shown that prior to the first part of the HOH competition, Dan pulled Ian aside and asked him to throw the competition. His reasoning was that he (Dan) could not beat Danielle in the second part of the competition, but Ian could. Ian agreed to this. Then, Dan went to Danielle and told her that he had convinced Ian to drop in the first part of the competition. He told Danielle that when she saw Ian drop, she would know that he was being honest with her. Well, sure enough, Ian dropped at the 17 minute mark. Dan then convinces Danielle to drop telling her in essence the same thing he told Ian. He (Dan) didn’t think he could beat Ian in the second part of the competition. This set up the second part of the competition…Ian versus Danielle.

This competition involves scurrying (yes I used the word scurrying!) up a wall, finding the house guest pictures and placing them in order of eviction. The winner is the HG who finishes the quickest. Ian beats Danielle with about a minute to spare. Once again, Dan has engineered a plan. He “accidentally” lets Danielle see him and Ian celebrating after Ian’s win. Ian is PO’d with Dan and Danielle pretends to go ballistic on the two of them. She threatens Ian and tells him that she will taint the Jury against him. I’m still confused as to how this is supposed to help Danielle. What it does do is insure that Ian will pick Dan if he wins the final part of the HOH competition.

Now we are caught up and at the Live Show. The third part of the competition between Dan and Ian is questions. The questions involve deciding which answer an evicted HG gave when asked a particular question. I didn’t feel that Ian had an advantage in this part because the answers were not concrete. Word on the street was that Dan planned to throw this part of the competition so Ian would have to choose to evict Danielle, thus keeping his hands (relatively) clean. Yes, I am very aware that Dan’s hands are far from clean, but anyway…Ian does win.

Ian had to choose who to take to the Final Two and he picks Dan. I think this shows that Ian has integrity. There was definitely more of a chance for Ian to NOT win the money with Dan than with Danielle, but he stuck to his final two deal. Danielle is finally evicted from the Big Brother house.

The Jury is introduced on the Live Show and then Danielle is brought in. Since the live show continues Danielle never has the opportunity to talk to the Jury before the vote (unless she did during the commercials). Another interesting tidbit that I picked up during the Live Feed Backyard Interviews was that Shane never went to the Jury House. He was put in a hotel and sequestered alone until the Finale. That means he didn’t have the opportunity to talk to the Jury prior to the Finale either. Huh! We do see the Jury discussing who should win the money. I’m not sure when this scene was taped.

Next we have the questions from the Jury to the final two Big Brother contestants. I replayed this part because I feel that this was the deciding factor of the Jury vote. I read some comments that Ian was arrogant during the question and answer section. I think at this point in the game, if you aren’t arrogant you have a good chance of losing. You have to put yourself out there and do your best to take home the money. I think that when Dan said that he had stabbed practically every house guest in the back, he hurt his chances or maybe he hurt his chances when he stabbed every house guest in the back!

The question that seemed to clinch this thing was when Danielle asked Ian if he was aware that she and Dan had a Final Two alliance. Ian seemed really surprised at this and told everyone that Dan had given him his grandfather’s gold cross as collateral for sealing their final two deal. When Dan admits that he did plan to take Danielle to the final two, Ian is visibly shaken and keeps repeating to Dan, “Really? Really?” This was one of my favorite moments on the show last night!

To make a long story less long…the vote was 6 for Ian and 1 for Dan. Danielle voted for Dan to win the $500,000 because she said that she wanted to do what she said she would do and support Dan all the way. When she watches the show, I bet she’s going to change her mind. In fact, in the Backyard Interview, she is asked if she knew that when Shane was evicted, Dan whispered in his ear that Danielle was using him throughout the whole game. Danielle did her now famous jaw drop and asked the interviewer (Spicy), “did he really say that?” When Spicy said yes, Danielle was fuming and asked her to change the subject. Spicy also asked her if she regretted throwing the first part of the HOH competition and she said yes.

Also interesting during the Backyard Interviews was Shane. When asked about his continuing the relationship with Danielle, he said he didn’t think it would work because he lives in Vermont and she lives in Alabama. He said that if one of them had won the money, they would be able to afford plane fares, but at this point it didn’t look good for them. He seemed really upset when he talked about returning to Vermont with no job and no money. Spicy said that maybe something would come up and Big Brother will change his life, but he looked depressed and not convinced. When Spicy asked Danielle the same question, poor delusional Danielle replied that they would definitely be continuing their relationship. Me thinks its time for Shane to get an unlisted phone number!

I forgot to mention that America’s Favorite Player was Frank. The cutie played a good game and has a good personality so I think he was a good choice. I did want to see Jodi win because she was shafted by BB, but maybe they will take pity on her and let her play in a future game. Another aside is that CBS did announce last night that BB has been renewed for another season. So we have something to keep us occupied next summer. Yay!

By this time, it was after 1:00 a.m. on the East Coast and so I never did get to see the interview with Ian or Dan. I was bummed, but I do have to be able to get up each morning!

There will be one more blog for this season. I have a few friends attending the Big Brother Wrap Party tonight in Hollywood. They have agreed to “dish” a bit about it, so I will be back with those interviews late Friday or Saturday. As you know, BBBlogger and I have joined forces to work on Survivor this season. I’m really looking forward to only having to blog once or twice a week! LOL I’ll be heading over to the Survivor blog to recap last night’s show after signing off here.

OH, DANNY BOY SHOULD BE THE RINGTONE ON SATANS’PHONE
I TOOK THE LIBERTY OF CHANGING THE LYRICS JUST A TAD
SO IAN FAN SING ALONG WITH ME

Oh, Danny boy, the church, the priests are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer’s gone, and all your hopes are dying
‘Tis you, ’tis you must go and Ian must bide.

But never come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
‘Tis Ian will be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh, Danny boy, oh, Danny boy, the jury hates you so.

And if you come, and all the flowers are dying
If your lies dead, as dead you well may be
I pray you’ll find the place where you started lying
And kneel and say an “Ave” there for thee

And they shall hear, though soft you tread above me
And all on your bb grave will warm and sweeter be
And then you’ll kneel and whisper that you lied to me
And the jury shall sleep in peace until you never return to me.
or the jury simply sleep in peace knowing that you will never come to me.
And they shall rest in peace knowing you will never come to me. or Oh, Danny boy, oh, Danny boy u fuc”””””up so

TO SATAN/DEVIL HERE IS ONE FAN WHO HOPES TO NEVER SEE YOUR SORRY HORNS AGAIN CIAO CIAO CIAO
—————————————————————————————–

Congrts again to Ian winner of bb14 he showed he knows his chess game he proved a pawn can take the game

from the bb house to the penthouse

I was also thinking a few of you asked if anyone seen dan’s wife i think she came in for a second since it was required then she exited state right with her head hanging in shame.
ciao

Is it me, or did a lot of the conversation between the cast seem scripted? Especially when the jury was supposed to be having their back yard discussion. Everything that came out of Frank’s mouth seemed so planned. I was a little disappointed in the finale last night. Glad Ian won though.

mm: Thanks for the play by play. I was at a meeting last night and watched the taped version when I got home. Saw it the same way you did. Ian earned it and I did think he was pretty arrogant at the question and answer. However, he has watched BB for years and he knows how it works. I believe it was a combination of being ticked at Dan when he found out he had been duped and also knowing what the jury wants to see. Quite honestly, he had a right to be arrogant and cocky. There are times that juries just vote based on what they consider game play and other times when they use their emotions more. I believe this was one time they used their emotions and disgust for Dan. Just guessing, but I don’t know if Dan’s wife was as much ashamed as she was just not wanting to see negative toward her husband. I don’t know but I think that may have been part of it. I hope this will show players in the future that even if you believe in playing the game that there is a line between being ruthless and being evil.

I just gotta say, that Danielle was one serious dimbulb!! Like, really, how stupid do you have to be to be used by someone, right up to the end, and then want to reward them for it?? I’m glad Ian won, and that the rest of the jury gave Dan exactly what he deserved, nada!! Looking forward to Survivor!!!

I still can’t believe Ian AND Danielle were gullible enough to drop early and Danielle was gullible enough to threaten and upset Ian over jury votes. Dan is $50,000 richer but his dead Grandfather is cursed and stuck in Catholic Purgatory, Dan’s Marriage is now cursed and won’t last and after all the blatant lying and misdeeds after giving his solemn oaths on his Bible Dan’s soul is cursed and hellbound. Dan is a total creep. Danielle is a total lemming dumbass—she still gave Dan her vote. What???????

Perfect recap, Bloggergal. MM loved your Danny boy song lyrics but Dan is too evil to be associated with a beautiful song.
I don’t think that much meanness can be just turned on and off for game play. I think part of his true self came through. I’m in total agreement if they ever bring Dan back I won’t be there to watch.
Thank you to BBBlogger and Bloggergal for a wonderful place to spend the summer. Thanks to all the bloggers for being such fun and interesting people.

I rarely comment here but feel like I need to today.

Did many of you just plain forget that BB is a GAME? Yeah its a GAME – if you throw someone under the bus or make promises on the bible, significant other or your dead family member – its all a part of the game and the goal is to WIN! Get it? Win a GAME! Sheesh!

Everywhere I read about this season’s BB I see so much Dan bashing. We only know of Dan what we were shown by CBS. One simply cannot base an opinion about someone on what you were shown on TV. You don’t know him personally, and neither do I. Give the man a break – he played the GAME and he played it WELL.

Thanks for listening

Great write up….being a longtime fan myself of big brother and watching faithfully since season 2 I must say this was one of the first finales that really didn’t have an obvious path to the finish line and if you think back only a week last night’s results could have been much different.

Rewind one week, if Dan had let Ian out the door I think Dan would have had a better shot at winning, it would have been a relatively even playing field and regardless, contrary to many posts, Danielle, I think is a loyal person and would have picked Dan, remember she won HOH and Veto, she is/was a force to be reckoned with, in my opinion.

If we play out the scenario of Shane winning final HOH even he, being logical, would take Dan due to the amount of blood on Dan’s hands but Dan got cocky and too over zealous in his quest to be the mighty manipulator and the mighty manipulator made two gross mistakes in the last hour of the show.

Number One – I think Dan threw the comp, he answered some of the latter questions prior to Julie finishing them, Danielle already had her suspicions, her facial expressions spoke a thousand words.

Number Two – Dan for spending about 150 cumulative days in the BB house should have remembered that the camera is always watching, what does he do after the comp? Celebrates and its shown on the screen AND to make matters worse he gets his gold necklace back, cmon Dan that is a rookie mistake.

Whether Danielle knows it or not the question she asked from jury row definitely put the nail in the coffin, he was busted and looked like an absolute fool, deer in headlights, you could say this was blind justice for Danielle and put Ian’s name on that cheque. If there was any chance of a close vote that question nixed it totally.

As for Danielle, not sure why the hate is so deep for her, she may have had her moments (worst ones at the end) but all in all, she plays the southern belle role to a tee and truly believe she is genuine with a pinch of devil.

Going back to week 1 her and Dan were on the bubble right off the bat, I think they did a fantastic job of positioning themselves through a majority of the game but the turning point I think was the funeral, it just made Danielle look so feeble and weak. When will contestants (from any reality show) learn that emotional connections are never good, well maybe jeff and jordon.

Looking forward to your follow-up column and as always, for me, the end of big brother is the official end of summer, it is a solemn day. Looking forward to next season and BBCanada. Cheers -rob

Thanks for answering my question ~ which was where / was Dan’s wife ? I did see her when they showed the families, but that was all. Wow, but Dan did swear on his wife and deceased grandfather. Perhaps Dan’s wife never saw this side of Dan. Since she left and did not go to Dan and left with her head down. Dan went to far and she walked the walk of shame. UUM, I wonder if Dan will have a job when he goes home? Just wondering.
Had a great time on this BB Blog, thanks to all of you, see yall next season.

To Laura: You are absolutely right about the questions being scripted. This whole season has actually been scripted that’s why the hamsters were constantly going into the DR. They spent more time in the DR this year than all the years put together, not to mention that the hamsters gave it away by telling each other what production told them to do. I am very disappointed in how they handled the reset, not fair that Frank got to stay. I do not believe that Frank was America’s favorite player, he was CBS’s favorite player. All the polls throughout this season Frank never once was a favorite. Why would America chose someone who cheated, belittled others, bullied and thought of himself as the best player ever to play BB…..Come on!!! Please do not insult my intelligence like that.

Glad Ian won, he studied this game for years. Dan did not play a good game, he lied a good game. He sold his soul to the devil is what he did. I even hate that he won $50,000. Shane was my favorite, b/c he was a nice guy with great morals. He refused to sell his soul to win. Frank and Shane both left to early, now those 2 in the final 3 with Ian, that would have been a great finale to watch! SOOOOOOOOO glad Dan did not win, he should be ashamed of his antics. If I was his wife I just dont think i could handle what all he said. He truly seemed insane at times on BBAD. I as a christian am very offended by him. Oh and 1 last thing I am so proud that Jenn voted the way she did, I would have been discussed if she had voted for Dan, but she showed true integrity. I like her next to Shane.

Dan should have won. It is a GAME and he played it the best he could. Come on people – sold his soul? He did alot of backstabbing but I think Wil said it best that they all should take responsibility for not realizing the game play.
He was out the door before he came up with the funeral scenario.
I think his wife is fine — she knew it was all game play to him.
He kept getting himself out of situations week after week.

As a fan of Dan’s for this season I completely agree with Janelle who had the luxury of watching the entire season play out. “It would be a travesty if Dan didn’t win.” And it was. I actually think some jurors might reconsider as they watch what they didn’t get to see behind the scenes.

I feel the same way this morning as I did when Coach did not win Survivor. To quote JT WTF?

@mike this is what i found so far re americas vote i do not think it is what u r asking so i will continue to check out

America’s Vote

America’s Vote, formerly titled America’s Choice, allows the viewing public to select a HouseGuest to receive a special opportunity not available to other HouseGuests. Voting is done through the CBS website and text messaging. Though HouseGuests do not actively compete for the reward, it is essentially a reward based on viewers’ opinions of the HouseGuests. America’s Choice contests begin midway through each season and occur weekly. Previous contests have allowed HouseGuests to make a mobile phone call to family, have a walk-on role for a CBS soap opera, and conduct an internet chat with fans. In season six, the first America’s Choice contest was to vote a previously evicted HouseGuest back into the house. America’s Choice is not always a choice between contestants to earn a special opportunity. Sometimes viewers are asked what challenge the HouseGuests should play or what kind of appliance would be given to the HouseGuests. In season eight, America’s Choice spun off into America’s Player, where Eric was chosen to fulfill tasks voted on by the public for financial reward. During Big Brother 7: All-Stars, America’s Choice was renamed America’s Vote. An America’s Vote poll during Big Brother 10 allowed viewers to select a food item that houseguests on food restriction could have without penalty, from seasons 11-14 they have continued a similar poll.

@mike this may help check out the final sentence that is about all i could find

Julie Chen revealed that Frank Eudy won the $25,000 prize for being “America’s Favorite Houseguest.” There had been a big online push to vote for Frank, especially once it was clear that Ian was likely going to be in the final two. There were a lot of great contenders this season, however, so some are surprised that Frank won.

Typically and magically the final two never end up winning, even though they often seem to be viewer favorites.””

Ian did his thing, he out spoke and out classed Dan in such a large way.

I could have slapped Dan for interrupting Ian while he was trying to answer his question for the jury.

Dan looked like a big unprofessional fool. Danielle looked like an angry bitter b***h! So much for her tainting the jury during the commercial break. I loved when Britney said she wanted Danielle to join the jury.

Danielle bullied her way to the jury. She had ample time to tell Ian that she and Dan had a final 2 deal. She could have set Dan up and let Ian hear it for himself while they were still in the house. I think Ian would have taken her and he still would have won!

I’m so happy Ian won! I wish Dan had been sent to the jury, that would have been the icing on the cake!

So glad Ian won. It just goes to show that you don’t have to play dirty and totally deceitfully to win this game. Yes, Ian stabbed Boogie in the back but if you think about it, Ian’s alliance with Boogie was never even his choice, that alliance was forced upon him by the coaches twist. At the reset, it was every man (and woman) for himself and Ian aligned with the people he thought he could work with.

@Sadie, yes, we get that BB is game. Dan not only played ruthlessly, he played without any sense of integrity or honor. He even claimed at the very end that he can’t win competitions but he threw most of them, only winning when he absolutely needed to in order to save himself. I doubt Dan threw the final part of the HOH comp though but its possible because he really didn’t care who he sat against, his ego told him that he could win against either of them. He forgot that the only friend he had on the jury was dimwitted Dani.

I loved how Dan tried to second guess Ian’s game play. He didn’t even remember what had happened that day the quack pack was founded. He claimed that Brit brought Ian to the HOH room in his dog suit and told him they needed him as the fifth vote in their already formed alliance. It was Jen who took the dog suited Ian to the HOH room. Jen then left and Ian brought up the idea of the 5 in the room working together. Ian, I think, already suspected they had an alliance and wanted in on it. This was when Dan also tried to claim that Ian was a puppet. Dan actually thought he’d pulled Ian’s strings all summer. Ian may have gone along with a lot of Dan’s ideas, but if Ian didn’t see the upside for himself, I don’t think he would have. I think this is actually where Dan lost the game. Dan showed the jury what an egotistical, self-righteous person Dan actually is. He felt he was right about everything, nobody else did anything on their own or for their own benefit, they all just played “Dan’s game”. I feel up that point there still have been a slim chance of Dan winning, but he let his superiority get in the way.

BB has had strict rules against any form of physical violence since season 2 when that one guy (I can’t remember his name) held a knife to that girl’s throat as a “joke”. But there should be a rule also against excessive bullying. Bullying is a serious problem in this country and when teens or kids (and a lot of young people watch BB) see that type of behavior on TV, see it rewarded, they think it is appropriate behavior. This is why I was so disappointed when evil Dick won and vowed never to watch again–I was back the following summer though, hoping for something different. Some might think it makes for good TV to have people picking on somebody weaker, younger and less knowledgeable about life than the bully. IMO, it is needless and crass to appeal to humanity’s baser instincts. Most diehard BB fans would watch the game if there were no fighting or bullying ever. And it would be so much fun to watch those immature types who think the way to get ahead is by bullying getting the boot by production. Verbal fights and disagreements are one thing–like the one between Ian and Frank after Boogie’s eviction. What Dan and Dani did to Ian in the final few days was excessive, uncalled for and really had nothing to do with the game. Dan, especially, should be ashamed of himself.

Being on team Frank this season, I am so glad he won America’s choice. It really showed the other HG’s that thier opinion really didn’t count with America. So glad Ian won over Dan. All Dan got was $50,000, now he has to ask himself, was it all worth it. I know it was only a game but how is he going to explain this outside the house? I really don’t wish bad will to Dan, he is the one who has to live with himself. One lesson his not winning will teach the boys on his team, lying does not win the game. The one person I do feel sorry for is his wife, hopfully they will get beyond this. No game is worth a marraige.

This is a game people. Did Dan go too far. Yes! But he did what he had to do to get to the end. Not a Dani fan but Dan should have won part 3 and had taken Dani. He would have had a better chance to win against Dani.

Can anyone clear up what Janelle said when she spoke right before the vote? It sounded like she said she was amazed by “all the lies Danielle told” and Dan’s game. Did she say Danielle or Dan told all the lies? This has baffled me since the show last night. I didn’t really think Danielle told that many lies and if she did, they weren’t really critical ones.

Congratulations Ian! You deserved this win!

Thank you

Probably one of the dirtiest and cruelest things anyone has ever done in this game is Dan whispering into Shane’s ear as he is leaving the BB house is that it was Dani who planned Shane’s getting backdoored.

Still, I wouldn’t be surprised if in a week or so, Shane looks out his front window to see a pickup truck pull up into his yard with Dani in it with all of her worldly possessions loaded in the back.

It’s funny, never trust someone willing to hand over their family heirlooms or swear on the wedding rings, it’s almost like they are willing to devalue them over a game. If you remember, Janelle also was going to give up her wedding rings to Britney. It will be interesting to see if anyone else does this in future seasons and if their promises too are as hollow as their value of the items are to them.

@Laura: It was really scripted (backyard fake chat) and usually is. They don’t want anyone watching to think any one HG has their mind made up so as to take the luster off the Final. Jenn’s vote was the only one that really surprised me as he talking about “rats” and “snitches” made me think she was anti-Ian. Trust me, it won’t get any better (as in non-scripted) or will we see any real heart-to-hearts in the backyard chats in CBS’s over-controlled environment.

@northern_lass (Pam): I wrote your e-mail down and will keep in touch when BB UK starts up again in January. Another addiction of mine all of a sudden.

@All: Thanks for all the great comments this season and love to see so many backing Dan and sticking up for what they believe. I was always anti-Coach and hated the hoodwink CBS pulled on us but am happy that maybe the shortest, lightest, youngest and overly-energetic HG possibly in BB history won last night. I gave him no absolutely chance in the first month and then he grew on me and can’t believe how my opinions of him and Boogie have changed for the better while my opinions of Janelle and Dan have changed for the worst.

We all know it’s just a game, just a TV show but one’s character is reflected in one’s actions and blaming editing or saying someone is way different out of the House just doesn’t cut it for me. I could have a beer with Joe or Frank or Ian or Wil or Shane but wouldn’t feel good about drinking with someone like Dan. Not my cup of tea but I really respect the opinions of those who wanted him to win. People’s perceptions and Life experience often affect their judgment and i will always dislike it when people use the Bible or their spirituality in reality TV shows.

I’m sure if there is a God, She has more important things to worry about than whether Coach wins Survivor (I also think he as well as Russell Hantz were robbed princess) or if Dan or Ian wins Big Brother. If She (God) is spending her time on such silliness, not doubt we are all doomed as simple homo sapiens simply trying to feed ourselves and pay the bills.

Love how many cool people I have met here and cherish all of you. Keep thinking and sending positive energy to our boy JT’s sister Denise and anyone else here needing psychic support. That is truly a noble and worthy cause for us to get worked up over. You all rock.

53 Sirrock 09.20.12 at 6:01 pm

On pure game play, I still feel Dan should have won. I don’t care if he swore on his Grandma’s underwear or his Uncle’s flip flops. Its just a game. He had little chance of winning because of the game he played, not to mention he already won it before. His only chance was to maybe drag Joe or Jen to the end and it just didn’t work out for him.

That said, I’m happy for Ian. I liked that quirky little dude. The money will change his life and it will be for the positive. He wasn’t innocent in the game, but he played a “cleaner” game than Dan. I’m sure as shit happy that Dani didn’t win. What a bitter person she is. She has the right to be upset but she allowed all of the “Dan Mist” to fool her time and time again.

The game is based on competitions and social game. I guess it doesn’t matter much if you get to the end and everyone who has the ability to vote for you to win, hates you.

I will say this, if Dan didn’t do what he did for the second half of the season, this may have been one of the worst seasons in BB history. I’d watch either way, but Dan’s play made most of us tune in.

Maybe he “misted” the TV audience too. :)

@TheKhanKubla: Spot on. I can’t believe he said that to Shane either on the way on but as mm would say ( and possibly in all caps ;-) ) “There is no honor among thieves,” or something like that. I think Dan overthought the Game too much and tried to be like Dr. Will but there’s nothing wrong with NOT SCREWING people and nothing wrong with winning an occasional HoH or PoV en route to trying to win.

And CBS, could you possibly jack the f&#*ing prize money up to $1 million? And maybe film in HiDef before 3012? I know the ratings aren’t as they once were but this and Letterman and TAR and Survivor and sports are the shows that butter your bread. Maybe consider having a season where you let the fans vote for evictions (and then the winner) at 99 cents a pop and then use all that “fan” money you raised to actually makes the show a little better for us fans. We’ve had your back for years. It’s about time you had ours. Seriously.

Bloggergal, absolutely fantastic summation of last night and you filled in a lot of blanks too. I didn’t see the interview. I’m sorry if this was answered above but I haven’t gotten to all the above posts but why is Ian buying Sunglasses? I’ll keep reading so don’t answer if it’s already above.

Thanks everyone for all your comments. No time to respond to you all but know this is a great blog and our differing opinions are respected. Giving our opinions in a respectful manner is what makes this blog special, of course, BBBlogger & Bloggergal do the hard part.

If I’ve said it once in the last few weeks, I’ve said it many, many times: I do not believe someone like Dan can behave so viciously, disgustingly and satanish without really being that way to some extent. There’s no way that you can become a villain in the snap of a finger and turn back to sweetheart with the next snap. In his uninspirational speech he said something to the effect that he leaves his morals and feelings at the door when he enters BB house, well he forgot to leave his wedding ring, grandfather’s cross and bible too!

I’m so happy for Ian and I hope he continues his education and lives a very nice life with some cute brainiac like him and they have little brainiacs and live happily ever after. Amen!

I felt bad for him last night. I think he wanted to wring Dan’s neck and make that snarky smile disappear forever. He won’t be forgiving Dan any time soon.

@starfish Neither will I be forgiving Dan any time soon. I don’t want to carry all that negativity around with me so I suppose I’ll do what my faith suggests…pray for him….weven though it grates my soul. I think you are quite right, starfish, Dan had to have those qualities in him to act like he did. We all have the seeds of sin inside, but, not your thoughts, but your actions cause them to grow. All you Dan lovers, I get it. He did play the best (albeit dirty and reprehensible) game, but unless I’m mistaken Julie told the jury to vote for who you WANT to win, not vote for who you thought played the best game. See? Already I’m beginning to let go of my disgust for Dan.
@K11 I think the jury interview was scripted too. No one accuses hg of being good actors. When Jen was talking about the rats and snitches, had no one told her how Dan ratted out and snitched to Frank about the Quack Pack? I feel Boogie redeemed himself in my eyes by how he applauded Ian. First time I ever saw him act human. Maybe what EW said about him made him reevaluate his reputation. Thenagain, Janelle sank in my estimation. Funny even after the bb’s are well over, I still have an ebb and flow about former hg. And, Kev, from your typing to CBS’s eyes. We deserve a show that has progressed and is not staying stuck back in 2000.
@JT Thinking and praying for you and your sister.
@mm Danny Boy was genius. I’ll never hear that song again and not think of Dan so you ruined it for me forver! : ) That’s ok. It was worth it.
Again bbbgal and guy AWESOME job, as always.
I may be still somewhat blinded by my love of Rachel, (oh, gosh. I can see I’m going to have to be dodging angry emails attacking my sanity!!!) but didn’t she win America’s Favorite the season she won? Ouch, ouch. Incoming emails aimed at my head. : )

I just watched the finale for the third time. I know, nutty person. The main reason was to watch Dan’s face again when he missed the Britney question. That disappointed expression looked real to me compared to the other ones and I watched it closely. Told you I was nuts. Remember he asked Ian after the comp how did Ian know the answer to the Brit question and Ian said he was guessing. I don’t believe that for a minute. But I do believe that Dan really missed that Brit question and at that moment, Dan decided he probably wouldn’t win against Ian and lost the rest of his questions so it really looked like he threw it. I think his ego is too big to really lose this HOH so he had to make it look like he threw it. So that’s my analysis and I’m sticking to it. :D

Also, big props to Boogie. He tipped his hat to Ian before and gave him props again with his comments. He appreciates good game play.

Thanks for a great year BBBlogger and Bloggergal. I raise my glass to you!

Well, not sure anyone is going to read anymore or this late but..I watched the Finale Party on Superpass tonight..for 3.5 HOURS!!!! OMG! I am cross-eyed as I was watching it mostly on my iPhone!!! Can you say ADDICT???LOL
@Jane……You nailed it, GF! Dani WAS at the party!!! With her tenacles wrapped all around Shane!!! And wearing that red and black striped one shoulder dress….again!!! It’s so funny, we know all the clothes the HGS had and they haven;t had time to get anything different yet so I recognize everything they are wearing..lol
Shane kept saying he needed to get home to pay all his overdue bills and how he works 3 jobs, yadayada. Gets a lil old. We ALL have lives and bills babe!!! when asked if he’s forgiven dan he said NO!!! And he didn;t care if he ever talked to or saw him again!!! Bitter much???? This was a very bitter jury. No one voted gameplay,just on their hate for how Dan screwed them allover in some way!! When asked longterm plans, Dani said she’d be IN Vermont SOON…and Shane just gave her a werid sideways glance..lol but they do say they are a couple and giving it a shot. Dani is alot more manipulative than Shane so…..I have no doubt they will be married eventually!! Danielle and Dominic(I guess they are living togetehr??) were there giving *out of the house couple* advice to shane and Dani. I didn’t even know they were together!!!!!
I could go on for hours about teh party..did anyone else watch it??? There were alot of downtimes, just watching the crowd but, it was pretty good otehrwwise. had a ffew old HGS there like Bucky, who was hitting on Kevin from S12 who was interviewing….Chelsia, who I never liked but who turned her 15 mins of fame into a career as she has wored pretty much ever since S9 for Superpass in some way…..Cowboy was there UGH!!! Never liked him and the years have not been kind..lol Stil wearing that DUMB hat and it looks like his head has gotten alot bigger!!!! J&J were there of course and I gotta say, as sweet as she may be, Jordan is so country DUMB and I said that her whole season! Never says a word and when she does, after Jeff goads her, you wish she hadn’t cuz its usually embarrassing!! Most of the HGs from this yer were there minus =Joe and Brit…guess spouses called and they went!! Ian’s family was there and I can see where he got his nerdiness…dear old dad..lol

@Starfish…..My theory was wrong, to put your mind to rest. Dan was asked if he threw the final comp. He said no, he missed the brit question and it jsut flusterred him. But he said he should have known because the qustion had her saying *like* and he said she never uesed that word as she was a very eloquent speaker!!! but he said it wouldnt have matteresd if he’d won as he would have taken Ian anyway!!!!
Oh..and MEMPHIS was there! Very last interview was he and Dan. memphis said tht ians’s membership in the Renegades was DENIED!!! lol Dan said it wasn’t real anyway and only he and Memphis would ever be renegeades. I am sure the $500,000 will wipe up Ians teras over that one…lol

@Patricia…in your comment #65…..I totally agree that BB VERSUS Survivor wins hands down EVERY time!!!lol Watching people dig around in the dirt just ain;t me. Now DISHING the dirt is another matter….lol I watched last nite but for me, it’s like trying to watch football. I really TRY, but the minute I start to , my mind just sort of goes blank!!!lol I thought it was boring last nite . The only thing I evr like are the tribals so…..I may stop by the SS BLog but I won’t haevealot to say about the show.:( (is that cheeering I hear????LOL)

@Kev11…what can i say,Tinman???? Love ya and it was so good to have you back this yeear! Going to miss talking to ya and reading your astute and humorous posts!;) Don’t forget my email addy and USE it!!! Tell ya what,..if you stop by the Survivor blog, i will too! At least once in awhile. Deal?

I was almost happy the season was over and now I miss it and don’t know what I am going to do with myself!! Loved being here with everyone, regs and newbies alike!!! Thanks for all you do Bloggergal and guy! And especialy thanks for the trophy and prize for being the 50,000th poster!!! it was a good summer all around!!!!

Peace,love and light,
Stra

@ Star

I saw the finale party, not all of it, i thought, they really need to be more organized, they paused way to long between interviews and instead of panning the camera around the room, they seem to keep it in the same place, pretty boring at times really.

Some funny moments, I don’t blame them about Dan really, he was pretty over the top this year, Of course Brenchel was liking Dan. And they suggested an Allstars with all them and Memphis, Please, I hope that doesn’t happen.

I saw Ian with his Parents, Real appreciative, but seemed pretty overwhelmed by everything. I wonder what Ian things of Dan Now? They need to get much more organized with that show, there are parts that was not great.

@aggie..have to agree with you about the wrap party. Very unorganized!! And not only do they need to pan with the camera during downtimes, they need to turn on some house lights!!!! man.talk about eyestrain trying to see in the dark thru the strobe lights..lol

I thought most of the old HGS that came back were kinda losers!! Didn;t see Dr. will or ED there, did we??? At least this year no one irritated me . Just seeing Cowboy , Bucky and Chelsia brought back bad memories..lol
I didn’t see Ian intereacting with Dan at all, but then we didn’t see alot of things. Wouldn’t surprise me if they didn’t really talk after what happened and cuz Memphis was there and taking up most of Dan’s time and atention.

Anyway, another BB down the drain! I am going thru withdrawl already!!! Keep in touch and cya on FB!!!! ;)

@ Star

I thought Bunky from season 2, Dr will’s season, was a sweet guy, he’s a nice guy in life also. Chelsea was a bitch on season 9, I didn’t like her, but she seemed pretty cool in life. Cowboy i just hated, I hated when Drew Took him instead of Diane. Ian is all about big moves, I suppose he will forgive Dan, But shane of course and others won’t. Good luck to the kid, well deserved.

I wish I would have found this forum earlier, it’s so nice to get the lo-down in 10 minutes of reading.

A few comments…

I’ve read a few published interviews with Dan post finale, he has answered the “did you throw the comp” both yes and no. I think he made one move to many and the Shane eviction was the too many.

Dani confirmed she saw him jumping on the screen post part 3. Another mistake/dagger by Dan.

I really don’t understand the hate for Dani by many, I know she padded a lot but who didn’t, was disappointed in Janelle for her call-out.

Many comment about how Shane needs to get over his bitterness and I thought for a minute, but look back exactly one week. He had a high probability of winning and so did Dani, there was a strong possibility for a one and two spot for the two of them, now they are reality TV leftovers that have been scorned by none other than their own. They HAD the winning lotto ticket with all the numbers, the wind took it and gave it to IAN.

No one forced Dani to do what she did by using the veto, Shane knew she was going to use the veto, talk about passive, complacent and lack of passion, I’ve put up more stink for 20 bucks, but that small mistake was likely a half million dollar mistake, there is no doubt in my mind. Suck it up buttercups, maybe Shane can take his fuscia shirts and be the male spokesperson for Mary Kay with Janelle.

If I had my choice, I would like to see an open public vote of all CBS cast members from all reality shows to do one super all-stars version of BB meets survivor meets amazing race. Bring together the best of the best, the best minds, the best brawn and the best teams, one prize, one winner, no runner-ups. Imagine, boston Rob against Dan?

And one final note, I was not on TeamIan, I had other picks however again when sitting back and looking at all the houseguests, it really irks me to see how many guests actually use the show as a vehicle to bolster their public presence. I was totally oblivious to dan’s (made for TV style) website until I finally got up one night off the couch due to sheer curiousity what dan was always mumbling to the camera. I had no idea Kara was a playmate, Jojo was an aspiring model, likewise for Dani and Shane (go figure) and gawd knows who else.

I believe Joe, Jenn and Britney voted based on actually “need” not gameplay which is a reality TV faux paux, nonetheless, I’m in it for the regular Joe, the person who is trying to make that difference in their/families life. Reality TV is far to tainted with self promotion (CBS please lose the Mr. “pec”tacular in speedos, not cool) and would like to see the real put back into reality, and with this, I can say I’m happy and satisfied to see Ian coming out on top, he deserves it and officially on the TeamIan bandwaggon, cheers to a good win, spend it/save it wisely and enjoy and to all BB fans out there I bid you a good day.

Star, thanks for that. Whether he truly threw it or not I guess is a question but I was pretty sure he really blew the Brit question so thanks for that. What caught my eye in your post was that he said he would have taken Ian if he won. You think?

Aggie, thanks girlfriend for your “pokes”. Always love your comments. Things are calming down for me now and so am I. My daughter’s upcoming wedding is keeping me sane. :)

Robbied, Great post! Hope you join us next year. Loved your prospective on things. For sure Dan just went one too many daggers and they weren’t clean cuts either. He gave every dagger an extra few twists. The voting was as it should be IMO. Voting on “need” isn’t necessarily a bad thing and Ian did play the game too just more respectfully. Dan admitted he could have been sitting in the final chair if he played the game differently but he chose to play as he did and it didn’t work. So, me too on TeamIan. I was most of the season. I just don’t understand Dani’s loyalty to a fault with Dan. I was young a gullible once too but she was just followed along like a sick puppy and Shane too. I agree he was so passive when she first mentioned using the POV that it shocked me. Duh ok, if you want to do that. Just really surprised me. Ok, I’m done. Hope you stop in next year.

Star said everything I was going to say in my next blog! See, that’s why I don’t read the comments. LOL I think I’m going to copy and paste Star’s comments onto the blog. Is that okay with you, Star? I am waiting to hear from my friends that attended the party to see if they have anything to add. It’s funny that you didn’t like when the camera just sat and watched the crowd. I did like that part because I had a lot of friends there and I could see what they were up to!

Thanks to all of you who reported on the finale party. I didn’t have accerss and thought I missed something, but if I did, it was evidentally not that important. Old hg VERSUS bb14 hg…not so interesting. I wished all the bb14 hg would have been there and interviewed, and we would perhaps be entrertained by a fight or two breaking out, or at least Shane running through the party trying to get away from Dani. : )
@Star Do you think it would lessen the interest in Survivor if they threw each tribe a bar of soap? I feel like I need to scrub down after every episode! If the cheering you hear is us hoping you come visit the Survivor blog now and again, it is!!! Your posts are always so entertaining, I’ll prolly come to see if you’ve posted rather thancomment on Survivor. BB was so easy because of BBAD. Every day there was something to talk about. Survivor…once a week. Going to be hard to keep up that addictive momentum.
@Robbied Better late than never!!!! Don’t forget to come back next year. I want to read more of your posts. I agree that I was shocked at how passive Shane was when Dani told him she was going to use the POV. Brain cells, anyone? Maybe when Dani swept in for a kiss, he blanked out. Once in the HOH room post Frank eviction, Shane and the other remaining males were talking about…what else…the girls, and Shane said he was really attracted to Kara and Dani was not his type. He said at the finale he would like to go and hit up Kara but he could never do that to Dani. Then being a couple is, I’m afraid, over in the not going to last column.
@K11, aggie, starfish and bobo I’m already excited in anticipating BB15 and spending the summer with all of you again. Please, let’s hanf on the Survivor blog and TAR blog and we all need to work on Star to make sure she checks in often. Please, Star, I’ll send you soap! : )

And on with the show!

@Bloggergal…you definitly have my permission to use my blog….typos and all!!lol There was more I could have written about the wrap party I was so geeked about it but I thought no one would read it cuz it would be so LONG…not that it wasn’t long already…lol And I didn’t mind the cameras watching the crowd…..but they stay in one place and it’d so dark!! I am a people watcher so I love that. Just want the CAM to PAN and turn on some hpuse lights up in there!!!!lol

@Pat2E/Oatricia/Patricia…lol See how we get so many nicks om this blog??:) I will stop by the Survivor blog. I just don’t know what to say except HI to everyone! I’m hardly a long time fan so don’t have alot of insights and like you say,it’s only on once a week so you do run out of gossip or gametalk!!! Funny you should mention the soap cuz I was just telling my mom, who has been sick with bronchitis, that she needs to start washing her hands ALOT more!!!!lol So maye the dirt factor does ick me out a bit!!;) Geez, everyone complained about Joe not washing his nasty-ass hands on BB……but yet they watch the Survivors with dirt stuck under their nails and no one says a word. UGH!!!!
I appreesh your comments about my posts! I think the entertainment value is to see what new and how many typos I have made tho..lol

@Robbied…..also enjoyed your post and wish you’d found us sooner!!!! You have alot of the same ideals we do…..we want new HGS, no Vets, no JESSIE or RACHEL…GAG…. and gameplay is gameplay…..however you can get there, may the best HG win!!!! You have really good insights and would be a great addition to our little blog family!!! Cya next year!!!! :)
