Even though we are far past last night’s show, here’s the recap. Julie interrupted the house guests to tell them that “surprise, surprise!” the eviction would be in a little while and then the HOH competition would be held. This happened on Tuesday.
As the house guests prepared for the live (taped) show, we watch the POV. At this point, Ian is the HOH. Nominated for eviction are Shane and Jenn. Dan and Danielle are the other two remaining HG’s. All will play for the POV. Those of you that watched The Glass House this summer know that CBS totally ripped off one of their games for this POV competition. It involved jumping from one platform to another while putting a puzzle together. To try to disguise the game, CBS used timers to make it seem different. As we all know by now, Shane won the POV.
It really bothered me to see Ian trailing after Dan into one of the rooms after the POV ceremony. Dan sure does spread that “mist” that Britney was talking about. Deep down, I keep hoping that instead of Dan “playing” Ian that Ian has some incredible plan and he is “playing” Dan. A girl can dream, can’t she?
Along with winning the POV, Shane received a luxury prize. He had the opportunity to leave the BB House to attend an Olympic Gymnastics performance and he was able to take one HG with him. He chooses Danielle. They have a cute first date, but I can’t help wondering if he’s playing along for the cameras and for his game. Actually, I really think that’s what he is doing. I wonder if they had the opportunity to talk game or if BB prohibited them from doing so? No game talk during the date was shown.
At least Shane was smart enough to use the POV on himself. Ian had to nominate another HG and he nominates Danielle. That means that either Jenn or Danielle will be evicted. Ian is an idiot for not putting up Dan. I keep trying to figure out his thought process on this, but I can’t. All he had to do was get Shane and Jenn on board with a separate alliance. Ian is stubborn and is sticking to the Quack Pack to the bitter end and I do mean bitter!
After reading Ian’s HOH blog, I think I understand Ian a little better, but that doesn’t mean I agree with him. He goes on and on about his creating the best alliance in BB history with the Quack Pack. Evidently, this was something he thought about and planned for quite awhile before entering the BB house. However, he is sacrificing himself at the expense of saving his Quack Pack. Silly, silly boy. He really believes that it is him and Dan (Renegades) against Danielle and Shane (Showmance). I don’t think this whole Dan playing such an evil game would bother me that much if it wasn’t for Ian. Ian has had to overcome a lot in his life and I just hate to see him not win this. I don’t understand how Dan can be so cruel as to lead this kid (because that’s what he is–a kid) on.
It was interesting to see Jenn speaking out against Dan. She didn’t seem to be taken in by the mist. Now, this doesn’t mean that the other HG’s don’t have reservations about Dan. It means that the producers haven’t shown us if they do or not. It’s all in the editing baby!
With a vote of 2 to 0, Jenn is evicted from the BB House. Since the eviction was a surprise, she doesn’t get House Guest goodbyes. Julie surprises her with a peanut butter and jelly sandwich since she was eating slop for weeks. She immediately begins wolfing it down. If you are a BB diehard you know that before slop the HG’s would get “punished” with only being able to eat peanut butter and jelly.
Let’s move on to the HOH competition. I had questioned this and we were receiving conflicting opinions, but Ian was NOT able to compete. Not being able to compete in this competition really puts a crimp in his game, not to mention that it was a memory one and he would have slayed the competition. The HG’s had to remember pictures that they had seen earlier in the day. Julie would read a statement and they had to decide if it was True or False. Dan and Danielle tied and had to play a tie breaker. I hate those tie breakers because they really are just one big guess. Danielle played it smart and picked a very low number hoping that Dan would go over and that is exactly what he did! Danielle becomes the new HOH and thus secures her place in the Final Three.
That’s it for the television show, now onto the spoilers (she says while rubbing her hands together with glee!). Danielle now has to choose who will be put on the block, her boyfriend or her coach. It doesn’t really matter much because the winner of the POV will hold all the power this week. She puts Ian against Dan. The POV competition is held and guess who wins? Danielle! I know, right? LOL
Now once again all the power is in Danielle’s hands. She will choose who secures the second place in the final three. That player will cast the lone vote for who will be evicted and who will have the third place in the final three. Simple, leave the nominations the way they are and throw the ball into Shane’s court, right? Wrong. Danielle is now considering removing Dan from the block and putting Shane up so that Dan is the one to have “blood on his hands”. What??? I really want Ian to be part of the final three, but I also don’t want to see Danielle play right into Dan’s hands. So I’m torn. You see if she does pull Dan down, word on the street is he will keep Ian and evict Shane. Most likely this is because there will be an endurance competition and he thinks he has a better shot against Ian than Shane. In endurance, I personally think Danielle, Shane OR Ian are likely to beat Dan.
We are almost at the end of this BB season. I can tell because it’s getting a little chilly at night here in Georgia. Next Wednesday is the BB14 finale. Then we move on to Survivor! Bloggergal
