This has been a very predictable week the second Dan won the PoV, and it’s still following it’s course. As expected, Dan paid his debt to Jenn by removing her from the block, and a “mad” Ian replaced her with Joe (Ian acted mad – he wasn’t).
So now either Joe or Frank will finally get hit by the eviction bullet this Thursday after doing their best Neo impressions all season. Between the two of them, they have been nominated 10 times either through first or second nominations. That’s pretty crazy considering Frank was HoH for 33% of the nominations this season. In addition, this may be the first time two houseguests were seated next to each other on Thursday night twice in the same season.
If the week continues to play out like it should, Frank is going to be completely convinced that he is safe this week, and then he will leave from an Ian tiebreaking vote on Thursday night. To be fair, it’s not exactly hard to convince Frank of anything, all you have to do is tell him something and he’ll believe it. He’s not stupid, but he is very gullible.
I see a lot of animosity towards Dan for swearing on the bible and then going back on it, but I need to defend him here. There is a lot of semantics going on in this situation. While Frank may think the final 2 deal means that Dan was his new Boogie, it didn’t. I took it as Dan was going to casually align with Frank and they were not going to vote for each other until the end. As long as Dan votes for Joe to leave this Thursday, he held up his end of the deal as far as I’m concerned.
Is it Dan’s fault that Frank was too foolish to fall for this rookie mistake? Frank knew Dan is a huge threat and tried to get him out twice, only to be convinced not to do it both times. Also, Frank should have seen the writing on the wall when talk of removing Jenn was an option. This type of move dates back to early reality show gaming where someone promises a vote but then has other people do the dirty work while said person remains free of guilt. Frank is supposed to be living his Big Brother dream, yet I seen this playing out 2 minutes after Dan won veto. How is Frank still in the dark? This is part of the social/strategic game that Ian said Frank is lacking, and it’s showing through here.
This is going to be pretty obvious, but what do you see happening on Thursday:
Don’t forget, there is still time to sign up for the live feeds. Next week should prove to be very entertaining as all of Dan’s alliances should be looking to him for support, and he finally has to choose one.
