Sorry about the lack of updates over the weekend, I tried my best to stay updated but it was really tough with spotty Internet service. I went to visit my parents deep in Maine and let me just say that they have one traffic light in the entire town. I am shocked I was able to get Internet at all, even if it was very spotty.
With my life story out of the way, let me do a little weekend recapping for those likely tuning in after watching the nominations on CBS (Sunday night). After the wild and intense live show on Thursday night, the show was cut off before the HoH competition, so people who just watch CBS still have no clue who actually won the HoH. (hint: sign up for the live feeds, there is still time in the season to enjoy it).

Here is what happened on this wild weekend once Julie Chen went off the air and our Big Brother 14 houseguests were back on their own….
HoH was played and finished shortly before 1am est, and in fact BBAD came on a few minutes before the live feeds did. Luckily I picked up Showtime this winter and watched as the first thing they showed was Frank had the key around his neck. This means Frank won the HoH.
Frank is showing weakness without Boogie:
Frank and Ian tried to talk it out and let me say, I’m a bit shocked at the Tank. Ian has somehow convinced Frank that least week was just a random lapse in judgement because Dan got to him, and he’s still aligned with Frank. Let me just say, Frank claims this has been a dream of his, but when did this dream start? 2011? He can’t be that clueless so see that Ian is lying to his face, especially after the guy nominated both Frank and the girl he had a crush on. Guys like Ian don’t simply nominate girls like Ashley unless he’s deeply embedded and loyal to that alliance. Come on Frank, you know better … or do you?
Nominations were only a mild shocker because I thought for sure that Dan and Shane were going to be nominated. While he didn’t make a stupid decision like Jenn and Joe, it was a little puzzling to see Dan and Danielle nominated. Frank has two huge physical threats remaining in the game, both have worked hard to get him evicted. If Danielle goes home this week, that almost makes things easier on the quack pack because neither Dan nor Shane have to feel obligated to slit each others throat to take Danielle to the finals. Of course Frank doesn’t know the inner dynamics of the alliance like the fans do, but still… not really a good choice there.
This was finally introduced into the season after a week or so of the clue in the arcade room. What happened was they hid quarters around the house, and you had to try and take the balls out of the machine. One of those balls was a special veto power, and Ian was the winner of that. As of now, he doesn’t plan on using it (because he is scared to make big moves) but that veto set up the possibility of both Dan and Danielle being removed from the block. It’s a good thing this didn’t happen last week, otherwise fans would tear down the BB house claiming it’s all a conspiracy to keep Frank and Boogie in the house.
The PoV may as well have been called the punishment of veto competition this week. Talk about a suck challenge. Houseguests had to figure out a drawing and buzz in. If they buzzed in, they had to either guess it, earn buts but also take the punishment or be disqualified. Frank was the big loser of the competition as he buzzed in the most, got the most penalties, but then was disqualified for accidentally saying the answer when Britney buzzed in. He was dominating in points, and for some reason even took the two week with no HoH punishment (for 10 points), which was mighty stupid of him. For an HoH, maybe.. but for PoV when you have 5-7 people after you? Let someone else have the veto. Worst case is Dan and Danielle come down and Shane and Britney go up. In no way whatsoever was the 2 weeks of HoH-less time was worth it.
Jenn ended up winning the veto by spending the rest of the summer on slop. Another dumb move.. I’ll have to watch the competition to find out if they had to do that, but let me just say.. if Frank didn’t HAVE to take the HoH punishment, and Jenn didn’t HAVE to take the slop, they’re a lot worse at the game than I thought. Boogie really was carrying Frank. Jenn had nothing to fear this week with Shane/Dan/Danielle/Britney being massive targets. It was a terrible decision, but it doesn’t shock me.
