I thought it was going to be a very dull week in the Big Brother 14 house, because typically the final week is. I haven’t even asked people to sign up to the live feeds since Thursday because I fully anticipated the three of them sitting around the house staring at the walls. Granted, they have been doing that for the most part, however occasionally Danielle flares up like the house hemorrhoid and unloads on Ian with rage.
If you flashback the livefeeds to 9:09pm bbt, you’ll find Danielle giving Ian about a 40 minute lecture on how she’s not mad at him, not bullying him or bashing him, yet does all of those things immediately following. She rants about how hard she’s had it in the game from day 1 (riding Dan’s back isn’t hard), and how much she’s done for the alliance (nothing), yet downplays Ian’s season. This makes her either completely delusional or dumb… While Dan has played a phenomenal game this season, one of the key reasons the “quack pack” made it as far as they did was Ian’s willingness to play the ‘villain’ role of the season. Without him completely turning on his coach and friend, there is 0% chance the final four would have been made up of their alliance.
By Ian playing the mole and Dan taking the punishment for it, this completely took any heat at all from the remaining houseguests and allowed them to target Boogie while they had the numbers. The only thing Danielle did the entire season was be a puppet to Dan whenever she won HoH, and to keep going back to a person who lies to her over and over. Is it Ian’s fault that Dan couldn’t trust her enough to warn her about the ‘funeral’ in advance? No, it’s just that Danielle is a pretty mediocre player who happened to get lucky and ride the back of a strong player and good alliance.
Danielle is this season’s Porsche, and because she pretty much did nothing in the house, she may actually wind up with 2-3 votes if she made the F2. She’ll earn the votes of those who are too bitter and butthurt to vote for the better player (either Ian or Dan), but luckily I don’t think there will be as many this season as BB13.
I know this is a pure opinion piece, but watching Ian talk to himself for quite some time on the hammock after the wrath of Danielle finished got annoying and I’ll be glad when he doesn’t have to suffer her any longer.
