By comparison to last week in the Big Brother house, things have been relatively tame this week. But there has been some interesting strategizing as the houseguests attempt to line themselves up in a good position to make it to the finale. Unbeknownst to (though occasionally speculated by) the houseguests, tomorrow night's live episode will see two contestants walking out the door and headed to jury.
The following post contains information from the live feeds for Big Brother, including the outcome of the Veto competition and ceremony, which has not aired on TV yet (Veto comp/ceremony airs tonight). Consider yourselves spoiler warned!
There hasn't been a lot of drama in the house this week, though there has been a lot of game talk and activity. As we previously reported, Dan won the Veto and per his plan with Ian, used it to take Jenn off the block. From what has been revealed on the feeds (we don't actually see the Veto competition and ceremony on the feeds), per Ian and Dan's plan, Ian pretended to be surprised and annoyed that Dan used the Veto to save Jenn, making it look like Dan went against the HoH's wishes (and hiding the alliance between Ian and Dan), and that Ian had no other choice but to put Joe up, since he made a deal with Shane during the HoH competition to keep him and Danielle safe. This leave Jenn grateful that Dan helped her out and Joe irritated at Dan for putting him in danger, but not mad at Ian for nominating him.
Since then, as far as I can tell, the plan is still to get Frank out. But Dan hasn't been fully honest with Frank about that. That's probably as much an effort not to let Frank think Dan's going back on their Final 2 deal - which might cause Frank to start bad-mouthing Dan and revealing the deal they made - as it is trying to keep Frank from relentlessly campaigning all week.
But Frank and Joe have both been campaigning all week, and neither appears to feel safe. Danielle and Dan had plans to work on Jenn a bit today so she won't be bitter or angry if/when Frank goes. Danielle had a conversation with Jenn about it a little while ago, which basically tipped her off that Frank was going. Things seem to go smoothly, though it's possible Jenn was keeping her reaction to herself. Danielle brought up some things Frank apparently said about deserving to win the game more than other people, and his plans to carve a "W" on his water bottle when he wins the season. These may be exaggerations on Danielle's part, but it was a good way to show Jenn what a bad social game Frank is playing, so that maybe she won't fault the other houseguests so much for wanting him out.
And it's really true. I'll admit, Frank's morning solo-chat sessions with the camera when he's alone outside have warmed me to him as a person. He seems like a genuinely nice guy. But for a game that relies, at least in part, on the things you say, Frank has a tendency to say the wrong things to the wrong people. And also, I really don't think Boogie helped Frank much in the social department. Chilltown at its best (in All Stars) was a balance of Mike's competitive nature and Dr. Will's charm. Frank is a nice guy, but he doesn't have the charm or finesse of Dr. Will. So despite how well Frank and Mike got along, they weren't a winning combination in this game, hence Mike's departure, and Frank's numerous nominations.
Jenn pulled Frank aside and told him he needs to talk to Danielle again and be really nice to her. She didn't outright tell him he's going home (yet), and she told Danielle she was going to tell Frank to talk to her again and be extra nice, so Danielle should be expecting a polite confrontation from Frank. Whether or not Frank can turn things around remains to be seen, but Jenn not outright telling him the house is voting him out tomorrow makes me think she's more or less resigned to his fate, at least for now. She has her own game to look out for, after all.
In lighter news, the houseguests have been filling their hours talking, playing card games, and in Dan's case, breaking things... accidentally. He broke a ceramic vase outside when he was trying to put up the flag, and then last night he broke (or turned off) Wil's memory wall photo. For some reason, he thought it was a good idea to put a mug up on top of the memory wall, but apparently there's a space between the memory wall and the actual wall, so the mug dropped down behind it and out went Wil's photo (see it blacked out in the photo above). I'm sure BB will get it fixed by tomorrow night's live show.
Danielle and Shane have been sleeping in the same bed, but is it a showmance or a "nomance"? Dan seems to enjoy instigating conversations with Danielle and Shane about their relationship, but as far as I've seen, aside from sleeping next to one another, there hasn't been any smoochies lately, and I get the impression there isn't as much interest on Shane's end as there is on Danielle's.
Speaking of Dan instigating, he engaged in a long chat with Ian about Pokemon the other day. And by "engaged," I mean Ian talked and Dan asked a lot of questions. Whether it's genuine interest and/or amusement, or part of his social game, I've noticed that Dan has a tendency to sit with people and ask a ton of questions. Whatever his motivations are, it's a great way to fill the feeds, as it usually gets people talking about their personal lives, which can be interesting. I may not share Ian's passion for Pokemon, but I have my own geekish tendencies, so he gets points from me for passion, dedication and his substantial knowledge on the subject. The same can be said for Ian's knowledge of past Big Brother seasons. Dan got Ian talking about the house decor and furnishings from previous seasons, and Ian's knowledge on the subject was impressive. As for Dan, whether or not it's intentional, he gets points for inching closer to the houseguests by encouraging them to talk about their interests and being a good listener.
Tonight is the Veto episode, and tomorrow night we'll see two houseguests walk out the door! Will Frank be one of them? Or will he manage to turn things around between now and then?
