Today has been a nice lazy Sunday, and apparently the Big Brother house was not immune to the laziness. I went to the gym and then relaxed for the rest of the day, and during that period there were only brief moments of game talk. With Dan holding the power of veto, I had a feeling today was going to be a bit slow. It’s like the days in work where the boss shows up early, is full of energy and decides to have everyone work late. You know you’re doomed because there is little you can say or do to prevent it. Just a nightmare, boring day.
How that compares is that Dan is too busy playing chess while the rest of the house is playing checkers. There is 0 chance anyone in the house will actually influence him to use the veto a different way than he intends to use it, and it feels like people know that. The most chatter in the house was Frank talking about his “swear on the bible final 2 deal” with Dan, but that doesn’t matter. For someone who talks like an expert of the game (Frank), this is reality show 101. Dan has a perfect opportunity to go back on his word while not appearing to go back on his word, and he’s going to do it. This is not some newbie here, Dan has his ‘get out of jail free’ card this week and he’s going to play it.
I’ve covered it already, but here is what I see happening (if you’re just reading this tonight). Frank and Jenn are on the block, and Dan won the veto. During the night of the ‘funeral’, Dan swore on the bible to Frank that he’d do a final 2 deal with him. Of course, by doing that, he’d lower his chance at winning, and also be forced to turn on Danielle and/or Shane. So, in order to “repay” Jenn for saving him last week, he’ll clear his debt by using the veto on her, Joe will likely be nominated, and Dan can also keep his word to Frank by voting for him.
The problem? While Jenn and Dan may vote for Frank to stay, Shane and Danielle can easily be convinced to tie the vote by voting Joe. This leaves the one and only “I entered the house to play a villain character” to drill the final nail in his former allies coffin with some speech he thinks will impact the game and earn him a vote in the finals. Naturally Ian will try to take credit for removing the strong player, but the reality is it – again – will be all Dan. Both Danielle and Shane can easily be convinced to vote whatever way Dan wants, so if Dan wants Frank to stay, Frank is staying regardless of Ian. Dan is simply going to go along with Ian looking like a bad guy because Ian thinks it will earn him respect in the finals, while Dan knows that Ian won’t have to worry about being in the finals.
The veto is tomorrow, and if Jenn is removed and Joe is replaced, you can almost say goodbye to Frank and cut Dan a check. Get the live feeds for free and watch to see if it happens.
