Well, as you’ve probably already heard, they held the POV competition earlier today and Donny won! That means that Donny has now won 2 out of 3 of the POV competitions so far. Could the bearded gentleman from North Carolina turn out to be this season’s challenge beast?
Time will tell.
But, while we’re on the subject of Donny, what does everyone think of the game that he’s playing so far? Or, to be more to the point, does anyone think that Donny has even started playing the game? It’s funny — for all the talk of the other HGs being convinced that Donny must secretly be a mad genius of some sort — Donny really doesn’t seem to have any strategy, beyond being a nice guy. Lately, he’s been saying that he thinks that its important that a “good” person wins but that’s not really a strategy. (Add to that, it drives me crazy when people talk about good and bad on a reality show. Anyone who can survive until the end of the game deserves a chance to win the money, as far as I’m concerned.) Donny is finally a member of an alliance but that’s just because America voted him into one.
It’s easy to see why Donny is one of America’s favorite players but, as far as playing the game is concerned, he really doesn’t seem to be playing it.
But anyway, Donny won the veto and, before the veto competition, he promised Jocasta that he would use it on her. Jocasta is nominated for eviction but apparently, she has come down with the flu and was on death’s door during the hour right before the veto competition. Now that Donny has won the veto and Jocasta knows that she’s probably going to be coming down off the block, she seems to be feeling a lot healthier.
Now, a lot of people think that Jocasta was faking being as sick as she claimed to be. I happen to be one of those people. However, I think that was brilliant strategy on her part. By saying that she couldn’t play for her safety because of a circumstance that was out of her control, she got everyone’s sympathy and made it so, regardless of who actually won the POV, the only decent thing to do would be to use it to save Jocasta.
Myself, if I was a houseguest, I would be concerned about being literally trapped in a house with someone who had the flu so severely that she literally could not get out of bed. I mean, it’s not as much of a concern as Jeremy’s ringworm but still, the flu is the flu.
I guess my point is that if Jocasta was so sick that she couldn’t even compete for the veto than it would be fair to ask if she’s too sick to stay in the house.
So, here’s the situation:
Derrick is HoH.
Caleb and Jocasta are nominated.
Donny has the POV.
Donny says he’s going to take down Jocasta.
And, if all goes according to plan, Derrick will nominate Devin in her place.
If you had to choose between voting out Devin or Caleb, who would you go for? Personally, I’d have a hard time making up my mind. They’re both challenge threats. Devin is more irritating but he’s also so unpopular that I imagine just about anyone could beat him if Devin somehow made it to the final two. Caleb, however, may have his issues but he’s not disliked the way that Devin is.
So, if you’re voting based on who you don’t want to reach the final two, then I think you have to take this opportunity to vote our Caleb while you can.
But if you’re voting on who is more annoying, then you have to vote for Devin.
It’ll be interesting to see how it all plays out. I have a feeling that Devin (assuming that Derrick sticks with his original plan) will be voted out on Thursday, if just because nobody wants to run the risk of getting trapped in the jury house with him.
