As Ash described in her most recent post, things got a bit crazy last night with Janelle (mostly) convincing Britney of the need to get Frank out before the coaches enter the game as she now fully expects they will. The pane came to fruition this afternoon and Frank is now on the block, replacing Ashley.
I wouldn't even dream of predicting who will go home on Thursday at this point. Danielle should be the swing vote if Ian and Jenn both vote to evict Joe and Ashley and Wil voting to evict Frank.
Right after the POV meeting the feeds were (are) all a chatter with people reacting. Britney lied and told Mike Boogie that they decided they needed to split the vote because otherwise Mike's team would have three votes and thus control who was evicted and they wanted to make sure Joe goes home and not Ashley. She has assured him that the plan is still to vote out Joe. Mike seemed to buy the story and proceeded to coach Frank and Ian to stay calm and they would need to start working on Danielle for her vote. Shane also told Joe the same story.
Ian was a victim of collateral damage because it seems Britney used something he said earlier this week as a reason to put up Frank to control the vote. I believe the jist of it was Britney claimed Ian wouldn't promise safety for Shane down the road. Ian is not happy at all because he said what Britney claimed isn't accurate.
Never the less. It will now be Frank or Joe walking out the door on Thursday. Will whomever walks out return? Since we know Kara and JoJo are in sequester we assume at least one HG may get the opportunity to return. My guess is that if the producers want Frank or Joe to return they will set up a skill competition similar to the one Brendon defeated Lawon in last year. Both Joe and Frank are much stronger competitors than JoJo or Kara.
Who do you think is going? Was this a good or bad move by Shane?
