What an absolutely wild night on the feeds that will probably rank right up there with Dr. Will’s “I hate you all” speech he gave to make himself less desirable to be evicted.
Before I begin explaining what happened, you can watch all of this on the flashback section of the live feeds by tuning in to 8-26, 7:51pm bbt and enjoy the next few hours. While the Friday night meltdown was extremely entertaining a few weeks ago, this tops it by far.
I did a ‘live blog’ format of the night in my previous thread, but I know people are in work now and don’t feel like reading a transcript to make it all out, so I tried to summarize it, but it came out long… sorry about that.
It started with the veto competition that has yet to air on CBS. During the competition, Dan told Danielle to throw it to him because it would have been easier to save them both with Dan off the block. Danielle is well liked in the house, and she easily had the numbers to stay versus almost anyone except for say a Britney. However, during the competition, Danielle decided to go for it a little, and then Dan witnessed Britney whispering things to Danielle during the competition.
As most people know, as a result of the competition, Dan ended up in 24 hour solitary confinement while Frank so desperately tried to win the PoV that he took on multiple punishments only to become disqualified due to a mistake in the competition. Those two factors play a huge role in what happened last night.
During his time in solitary, Dan started to realize that he was slowly becoming very alone in the house. His biggest ally has a huge crush on Shane, while she’s best friends with Britney. It’s very clear she can be easily manipulated and would likely have been a cause of Dan leaving the house, even if he did manage to stay the week. In addition to looking inward, he looked outside his alliance and saw just how hard Frank has been playing the game, going to the point of sacrificing two HOH competitions in order to secure Dan’s exit. Most people on his own team are the “I’ll let someone else do the dirty work” type, so to watch Frank do what he’s been doing clicked how impressive of a player Frank is this season.
Dan had plenty of time to come up with some plans, and he finally settled on one which took place last night beginning at the house meeting at 7:51pm bbt. He dressed in black to claim it was his “Big Brother Funeral”, then went from person to person giving high praise to each player, except one. He saved the last for Danielle in which he ended up completely humiliating her by saying she’s dead to him and they’re no longer working together. Danielle’s jaw dropped, everyone else had to pick theirs up, including myself. It was shocking to hear.
To “apologize for things he said” to Frank, both players then left and went into the HoH room while everyone else just sat stunned trying to comfort a broken up Danielle. Up in the HoH room, Dan had more than apologizing to say to Frank. He took up his bible, swore on that, his wife, and anything else he could that everything he was going to say to Frank was the 100% truth – and it was. During the conversation, he completely opened up about Ian’s role in the house, how Dan sat back and took tons of abuse while Ian was trying to stay clean.
Dan also explained how he really did want to work with Frank and Boogie, but due to Ian’s mouth, he was forced to go with the group on the Boogie witch hunt. In all honesty, Dan was sitting in a good position playing both alliances, so it didn’t make sense for him to mastermind Boogie’s exit. This made sense with Frank and things started to fall together for him. Frank said he has been a little iffy on Ian for awhile now, but this just seals it for him. In addition, Dan also told him the plan Britney had where if Shane or Brit won PoV, both Ian and the PoV winner would have used their vetoes to save both Dan and Danielle, which would have kept the “Quack Pack” together. This didn’t jive well with Britney telling Frank that she was willing to work with him, so Frank felt alone in the house yet again.
The pair talked for quite some time, but when they split up, Dan immediately went to find Danielle and explain the situation to her. He told her that in order to get a real reaction from her, he needed to be harsh like he was, otherwise it wouldn’t have been convincing. His plan was to give Danielle the complete sympathy vote while getting himself removed from the block. The biggest hurdle, working Jenn to remove Dan without everyone realizing what they are up to.
The way the veto will work, Ian will go first and probably not use it, so Dan and Frank agreed they have to get Jenn to use hers on Dan and then Frank will put up Britney as a replacement. Well, Frank pulled Jenn into the HoH room and actually convinced her to use the PoV on Dan, so that appears it will happen today. While reluctant at first, they opened up to her and a new alliance of four was born. I don’t think they have a stupid name yet, but I’m sure they’ll come up with something.
As it stands, the biggest current hurdle is to come up with some reason why Jenn wants to remove Dan and not Danielle. They’re going to be working hard on that today until the PoV ceremony happens this afternoon. Look for quite a shift in house momentum if this all goes down. Danielle will be on the block next to Britney and it will likely be the last few days in the house for Brit.
