The Zingbot 3000 made an appearance in the Big Brother 14 house, and I really hope I’ll be able to understand him this year. While the thing usually comes up with some decent cracks, it’s high pitch drives me nuts… yet for some reason I can’t get enough of it.
In what was probably the latest start of the season for the PoV competition, it was a pretty pivotal moment for The Herd (nickname explanation below) if they wanted to still have a chance at the money or simply let The Silent Six dominate the rest of the season as they sit back and simply wait for their turn.
Well, it appears that The Silent Six will remain in control, until they start turning on each other that is. Frank won the PoV and nominations will likely stay the same this week as it would be shocking to see the HoH overturn their own veto 3 weeks in a row. There is no need for him to use it at this point, so Monday’s meeting will likely come and go with no big changes.
While it may be a slow week in the house, you can only wonder what Big Brother is cooking up for the houseguests because I highly doubt they’re going to just sit back and watch The Herd go down without any fight. It’s bad TV, bad for the feeds, bad for everyone. If there is nothing they can do, expect possibly some weird stuff like a back to back double eviction to quickly knock them out and get back to the drama.
Anyway, as far as the nickname, well it’s simple. Right now you have the pride of lions (The Silent Six) all circled around a herd of gazelle. Those poor things are just standing around knowing they’re doomed, but they’re trying to ignore the circling lions and pretend nothing bad is about to happen. A lion snatches up a gazelle, the rest just turn their head and sigh that it wasn’t them… until it is.
When that food is gone, then we’ll see some excitement again.. until then, The National Geographic channel will have to suffice.
Side note – What’s the over/under on Danielle talking about whatever crack zingbot made towards her for a solid 2 weeks?
