This is one thing for certain that Big Brother has over other shows like Survivor. In a week to week basis, you really have no clue what’s going to happen and how the feel of the house will be after Thursday night’s HoH competition. Last week may have been one of the biggest switches in momentum I’ve seen in a long time, but last night may be right up there as well. Shane managed to win the ‘crapshoot’ HoH competition (although to be fair he was practicing the longest), and all but like 3 people in the house were stunned.
Because of the way teams were set up this season, alliances have been switched back and forth based on the coaches decision, especially on Janelle’s team. I have no clue how Ashley, Joe or Wil would have survived this long without the backing of a strong leader. They would be the definition of floaters if not for the fact that Janelle corralled them up and gave them direction every vote.
That being said, there is a 99.9% chance the coaches will become players on Thursday night which will shake up the entire game (note: I know they’re having you “vote”, but let’s be real, it’s happening regardless of the voting outcome). I think Janelle is still going to try and keep her herd in line and form a pretty weak but big 4-person alliance. Danielle and Shane have already made a final 2 pact, and that will become airtight once she breaks free of the team aspect of the game.
The rest of the house, I’m not really sure what I see happening. In addition, a lot will depend on who goes home this week. While Shane did try to form some type of alliance with Frank, Mr. Blinkies could be the #1 target this week followed by Wil. Will both of them be on the block at the same time, or will Shane spare one for the backdoor option? That is yet to be determined, but I do know after nominations, the live feeds should in fact be very entertaining once again.
The Willie hangover is long gone, and it’s time for people to start playing the game again. It’s extremely unlikely that both nominees will simply roll over and play dead like last week, so I’m expecting some entertainment from here going forward. When the coaches enter the game, that will be another massive twist that will shake up the entire strategy of everyone paying the game.
When the nominees are announced, I will be making a post, but until then feel free to watch the live feeds for 3 days free!
