The window of opportunity to stay in the Big Brother house is now closed for Brittany as the house is in full prep mode for the live show tonight. Very rarely do people get the chance to actually campaign on Thursday, and often times most people know who they’re voting out by Wednesday night. Every once in awhile we get a Thursday surprise with some scrambling, but that’s few and far between. This week is certainly not going to be one of them as the house is so locked in, one nominee hardly campaigned this week.
Britney gave it a try the past two days, but I really don’t think there was much she could have done. As soon as Cody picked Donny as the replacement nominee, Brittany’s time in Big Brother was over. Even without the Team America twist, it would have required an absolute pro to stay in the house against Donny this week. Could it have been done? Certainly. When there is talk of Donny going home in 2-3 votes (according to their ‘plan’), Brittany could have bought herself a few more weeks. The only alliance Donny is part of doesn’t even really act like one. On top of that, their missions are so half-assed, they’re at the point of insulting our intelligence as fans (seriously, Amber is a huge physical threat? Maybe to Caleb’s heart).
The week was full of questionable decisions and poor moves, and tonight when the girls in the house go to cast their vote for Brittany, they’re basically casting it for themselves as well. In a soon-to-be very male dominated house, there will be only two girls who aren’t in immediate jeopardy of going home. One of those girls is so expendable, she’s already been nominated twice and forced from her HoH role the time she won it. Amber’s short time as HoH was so insignificant, Devin basically picked all four nominees and made sure the person throwing the competition will be one of Amber’s (so she loses her HoH spot).
Note – I don’t mean to make it a gender war, but that’s basically what it has become considering most of the ‘Bomb Squad’ and ‘Detonators’ are guys with two female add-ons. Their goal from the beginning was to send the girls home one by one, so don’t shoot the messenger about constantly bringing up the sex of a player when I talk about the game.
The reality is, Brittany is one of the strongest female competitors this season, and she is one of the few chances to prevent an all-guy final 5. If anyone had the brains or guts to form together an ‘outcast’ alliance, it would have been her. The guys know it, and that’s why she didn’t have much of a chance this week. Britt’s only hope would have been to sit next to someone more threatening (Caleb), but that didn’t happen.
Here are my predicted votes:
- Everyone will vote for Brittany to go home
Yup, another unanimous list.
I am also hoping the HoH competition will be an endurance challenge (where they’ll let us watch the feeds), so that should draw some entertainment.
See you in just over 3 hours for the live show!
