It’s been a long time since Frank has been on the block and did not win the veto to save himself, but that streak had to come to an end, and it could cost him his time in the Big Brother 14 house.
Today, the veto competition was played, and Dan emerged victorious leaving him with a decision on whether or not he should save Jenn, save Frank, or not use it. Early chatter is that he may repay Jenn by taking her off, while Ian replaces her with Joe. This is an interesting move that Ian may gladly go along with, and perhaps encourage Dan to use it.
Ian is talking about a “resume builder” for the finals, and one good way to do that is to evict strong players. While he foolishly got rid of a strong player who respected those types of decisions before jury, this could be a chance for not only Dan to keep his word, but Ian to finally get some real blood on his hands.
Of course, Dan is going to come out on top in the situation, as he’s been doing all year, but to Ian’s credit this may be the best move for him in order to seem like a real player. As much of a competitor as Frank is, there are only so many bullets you can dodge before one hits you. This may be his time. The way I see it right now, Dan and Jenn vote for Frank to stay, Danielle and Shane vote for Joe, while Ian breaks the tie with some speech that he prepares all week for. Hopefully it’s a good one and not some pathetic “I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry” speeches, but something tells me it won’t be. Now that the cat is out of the bag, he no longer has to pretend to be grateful for Frank (and Mike) for getting him to this point in the game.
Right now, Frank is actually thinking of going along with the whole plan too, and plans to encourage Dan to use the veto on Jenn. I’m not really sure where Danielle and Shane stand, but something tells me that Dan is simply going to encourage them to vote for Joe to stay so Frank will be eliminated, Ian will look bad, a strong competitor is gone, and Dan will keep his word. In fact, I almost guarantee that’s what Dan is going to do, and I’ll be shocked otherwise. This is his perfect time to get Frank out while not going against himself swearing on the bible.
It’s going to be an interesting week, but I do suspect the veto will be used on Monday, I also suspect Jenn will come off and Joe will go up. The big thing will be where Dan steers his two puppets.
