Putting Jenn up as a re-nom in place of Frank may have been the best decision Shane made all year. Not because of the entertainment value between Dan and Boogie (although that’s certainly a bonus)… but because we have now realized how Jenn remained in the house as long as she has. Her gameplan of blending into the walls worked perfectly until this point because it was able to mask her completely terrible social game.
Jenn has managed to go from being one of the most secured pawns in years to potentially going home simply because of her efforts to campaign. To be fair, most pawns are generally told that’s what they are by the HoH shortly after they’re nominated, but that’s Shane for you. He would find a way to talk himself INTO a ticket even if an officer just wants to give him a warning.
Boogie has 48 hours left
Watch him scramble for votes here
This week Jenn has been huffing and puffing about being nominated, while everyone else around her is just like “omg, like what’s wrong Jenn? Like, everyone gets nominated at some point, gawd just deal with it!” until finally Joe of all people sat her down and told her he’s almost positive she was just a pawn and tried to explain why. I’m not quite sure she really listened at the time, but she has calmed down a bit since the talk and things may be settling in for her finally. It’s too bad, I was really itching to see Boogie instigate and argument between Jenn and Joe because that would have been the funniest thing I have seen all week.
Speaking of Joe. This guy is something. Right now here are his options:
a) Side with Dan/Shane/Danielle/Britney and be the 5th wheel in a very tight alliance with 3 strong competitors.
b) Side with Boogie/Frank/Ashley and be the 3rd/4th person in a tight two man, loose 3 person alliance. In addition, one of those people is a restaurateur and Joe is a chef. Then factor in how incredibly weak Ashley is in competitions and you see top 3 with ease.
I understand the risk/reward in siding with Dan versus Boogie. It’s the short-term gain, long-term loss. That’s fine with Joe considering he has said quite a few times he doesn’t care if he wins, he basically wants to be on the show as long as possible (ie, to promote his cooking agenda). That leads to the confusing part, because Joe is passing up an opportunity to open some doors in the real world, but he isn’t even thinking about that option. What is he really thinking? Does he have a plan, or is he really just like a dog who is loyal to Shane regardless what danger it puts him in?
Also, Joe has promised all day that he’s going to cause some scene with Boogie by telling him he’s not going to work with him, but where is it? Is this guy all talk, or is he really going to do it? Stop dancing around and create the stir you wanted to make because I can only watch Britney eat so many chips before I feel like puking.
