Tonights Eviction, new HoH and why POV matters more.

Just a quick blurb to let you all know whats up since the feeds have been off for just over 24 hours now.

From the traffic out there on the world wide interwebs it seems the strongest rumors have it that the show that was recorded yesterday was mostly a 'private' affair with a very select audience of people tied closely to the show (or friends of people tied closely to the show). 

That of course hasn't stopped at least two different 'sources' from revealing what went on yesterday and that's enough for me to post this as semi "fact" - if this proves wrong you can take away my journalism degree and burn it.

The word 'on the street' is that Judd was indeed evicted (the easy part to guess) and that Andy was the winner of the second to last HoH competition.  I'll leave the details at that because that's as much info as both sources confirmed.

Of course as I and others have said over and over the last few days, all Head of Household means this time is that you have made the final three.  The real power will be the Power of Veto winner which is most likely being played today (and we will figure out who won it when the feeds return around 9pm BB time tonight).  The POV winner will get to pick which two HGs are nominated and, unless it the POV winner is the HoH (as Danielle was last season) will also get to vote out one of the nominees with the only vote of the 'week.'

As an example, lets assume Andy is HoH.  He will have nominated two people (it really doesn't matter who though).  Lets say he nominates GinaMarie and McCrae (since Spencer kept him safe last week).

All four HGs will compete for the POV.  If, say, McCrae wins it, he would of course save himself (in the above scenario) and by default Andy would have to put Spencer on the block in his place.  Then McCrae would be the only non-nominated person and thus cast the only vote to evict.

Make sense?  That's why this time around the POV is more important that the HoH.  The one kink in this 'week' is if the HoH also wins the POV - in that case they get to decide the final 2 noms, but also are stuck with whomever the non-nominee decides to vote out.  An excellent example of this happened last season when Danielle won both HoH AND POV.  She initially nominated Dan and Ian.  Dan convinced her to play the POV and save him, thinking he would vote out Ian.  Instead Dan voted out her 'showmance' Shane and her jaw dropped for the millionth time.


Defending the Crazy

Trust me, I understand all the criticism of our nutty little Southern belle. She's a complete mess. She's no longer putting on makeup. She hasn't seen a brush in days. Her days are spent either dropping tears all over her bed, begging for compliments from Dan, or complaining to both Dan and Ian how they've ruined her life.


Yet she's the ONLY reason to continue watching the feeds.


I generally tune out the feeds during the last few days of the season. Once they're down to the final four, there's not much game play left. Everybody generally knows their place at this point, and the ramifications of each competition is usually obvious.

It gets even worse when the four become three. Those final days are usually nothing but sleep and reminiscing. How many times have you tuned into Showtime and saw everybody in bed? Even worse, how often can you bear listening to them predict their popularity outside the house, or the amount of money they think they're going to earn off ebay or personal appearances?

Yes, sometimes there is an odd man/woman out that can complicate things, but even then the feeds are a bore. Remember the last time Dan was in the house and old man Jerry was forced to spend a whole week sitting by himself? I actually felt sorry for that goof, which was the only time all year I had any empathy for him.

It's just a rare situation where the final week's feeds are entertaining. I'll still tune in now and then, and I definitely still watch the reactions to the final competitions. That's it, though. After almost three months of feeds, I'm ready for the finale.

This year is different, and it is all because of that hot Southern mess. She's a dream girl for those that study multiple personalities, manic/depression, master/servant relationships, daddy issues, and/or any other psychological issue. One minute she hate, hate, hates her coach-who-hasn't-been-a-coach-since-August 2; the next she's throwing competitions to him or begging for compliments. She doesn't want to be bothered by either Dan or Ian, yet she ensures they know she's around as she stomps around looking for Cheetos to feed her pain.

Speaking of Ian, while it is true that her treatment of him is due to "coaching" from Dan that will only ensure that HE is carried to the finals, I believe there is something more to it. Ian may have named the Quack Pack, but people seem to have forgotten that this alliance was created ONLY to get him to vote as they wanted. It was only after they did succeed in evicting certain people did the group become real, and only then that people like Britney and Dan saw him as more than a goofy kid. Danielle and Shane, though, never really accepted him, and after Shane's departure there is no doubt that Danielle had no clue how close Dan was to him.

The little light bulb in her head must have turned on at the conclusion of Saturday night's competition. Again, I know that Dan had instructed her to go off on Ian if he won, but she's not a good enough actress to keep this up as long as she has. Last night's bitchfest with Ian seemed to confirm that, as Danielle brought up a post-comp celebration more than once. Ian is known to go a little over-the-top in his victory celebrations, and I'll bet that Dan helped turn that into even a bigger scene.

Regardless of whether it's an act or not, she has single-handedly put a stop to the backslapping that always happens in those last few days. Ian and Dan still have moments when they try to tell each other how great they are, but it is always just a matter of minutes that Hurricane Danielle interrupts them and tells them how they've ruined her life. Add to that the growing list of maladies, threats, and former occupations, and I'm least for a few minutes at a time.


Tonight's Live POV and Eviction - One Worth Watching? Endurance Comp Too!

Ash explained in her Night Owl post that  Danielle thinks Dan will vote out Ian tonight after she saves him with the POV which will be shown live tonight.

But after much dilligent live feed watching we saw Dan stand in front of the memory wall and say that he would be voting out Shane (only the net viewers heard him of course) .

Danielle is going to be shocked, as will Shane of course when Dan votes him out.  Danielle even had Dan swear to her that he was voting out Ian and I watched as he said he was earlier this afternoon (no Bible was in sight if that matters to anyone).

I'm hoping for an huge jaw drop by both Danielle and Shane - and I'd rather the camera NOT follow Shane out the door or have his post eviction interview with Julie - instead I'd like to keep the cameras in the house to watch Dan and see if he goes into full on game mode or tries to convince Danielle it was the right move.

Then we have the endurance competition!  I seldom plug the live feeds on in the write ups here but if you want to see the endurance competition be sure to sign up via any link on the site!  I'd sure appreciate it and you do get three days free.

Keep your fingers crossed for a good show.


Live Feed Blackout Info

The feeds will be back in 5+ hours and we have a show in a bit to fill us in but for those that don't follow us on twitter here what is up.

On the show Tuesday (it was taped for tonight), Jenn was evicted 2-0 and then Danielle won the HoH competition, apparently beating Dan in a tie-breaker.

So the quack pack made it to the final 4 (without Brit) and Danielle has locked a final three spot.

The Power of Veto is MORE important than the HoH this time as no matter who Danielle nominates, the POV winner will be safe and able to vote out one of the other two non HoH peoples.  This assumes Danielle doesn't win POV - if she does then she can change her noms if she wants to select who gets to vote the 2nd quack pack member out.

We will probably find out nominations and who won the POV competition after the feeds return - my guess is the POV meeting will be live on Thursday's show since there are only 4 people left in the house and it can be used for filler having it 'live.'

There you have it - remember Thursday's show will end with Part 1 of the final HoH competition and will be endurance.


Scott's BB14 Endorsement

Since we're just over two weeks away from the most important reality television vote of the year, it is probably time that I show the world where I stand. Various factions have been courting me for the last few weeks, hoping that I turn my attention to their side. I have leggy brunettes on one side loading up their twitter timeline with sultry poses. On the other, it is all glitter-enhanced breasts and lacey panties. Which side will I choose?

Neither, actually. I've given so much thought to who is the most deserving winner of Big Brother #14. I've looked at flashback footage of everybody left in the game. I have googled their pre-show lives and listened to their post-show aspirations. As I sit here on my couch this Labor Day Monday, though, nursing a whiskey-Coke and chainsmoking American Spirit menthols, a lightbulb just exploded above my head.


Excuse me while I change that bulb.


Ok, I'm back. There is only one real choice for a Big Brother winner that would fully encapsulate this season. This person represents not just the dreams of anybody who signs up to go on the show, but also the reality of what will come in the weeks, months, and years after they are crowned the victor. This person is also what the producers, cameramen, viewers, feedwatchers, bloggers, and podcasters deserve for sitting through this drivel for the last two months.

Clearly, the perfect choice to win this year's version of Big Brother just has to be a delusional, mutton-faced, wanna-be Southern belle by the name of Danielle Murphree. She combines a great sense of grandeur with a complete lack of self-awareness, but, to be honest, everybody left in the house is guilty of these mismatched character traits.

Take Frank. Please, take Frank. One of the great competition machines in recent seasons has zero capability in judging character or reading between the most heavily-spaced lines in history. Or look at Jenn...if you can find her. Her "big move" that "proved" she was a master competitor did nothing but make her look like a fool.

And then we have Ian. Oh, poor poor Ian, the human vibrator. If Ashley really did want to get off while in the house, she should have just laid on the hammock whenever Ian was in a shaky mood.

Everything these morons have done in the last few weeks is set us up for the inevitable Dan victory that Grodner has clearly desired since he was handed a few tens of thousands to return to the show, but Grodner doesn't deserve this satisfaction. No, it has to go to our little snack-chomping mirror-poser.

If you don't agree with me, just think of the possibilities after the season ended. Danielle believes that Big Brother is the kickstarter to fame. Instead of Honey Boo, Teen Mom, or Real Housewives on the covers of supermarket tabloids, our little Danielle truly believes she will be their next cover girl. Time after time, she has related fantasies of being recognized and hounded wherever she goes after the season ends. What a better cap to this season is to see each and every one of her dreams crushed within days, if not hours, of her victory?

Let's be honest here. We may love Big Brother, but it has yet to be the stepping stone to any kind of fame. Their biggest star, Dr. Will, is lucky to make a cameo on a Real Housewives episode or a TLC "documentary". Their second biggest star hosts an internet show that is only a quarter-step above what we do every Saturday night on the Big Brother Gossip Show. After that, you have a serial tweeter, a Playboy TV asslicker, and a few dozen people who could walk onto Julie Chen's set this week and be recognized by NOBODY.

This is Danielle's year, and from here on in I will do nothing but push for her triumphant victory. Are you with me? I can't hear you. ARE YOU WITH ME???


Power of Veto Meeting - Epic? Does Dan have the votes?

Dan is up and waiting for the Power of Veto meeting which will start sometime around 11am BB time.

We assume since Ian won his POV first that he will be given the chance to use it first.  He doesn't plan to use it.  Then Jenn will go and is planning to use it to save Dan and Frank will put Britney up in his place.

Are you going - wait - what?  Then you need to read Ash's recap of last night's craziness.  Go here to read it.

Once that is over we hope the feeds will come back quickly - usually they are back by 12pm BB time. 

Britney may be in full meltdown mode or she may still be processing things.

I've speculated on the next part all morning.  Whats going to happen with the voting?

It is all well and good that Dan will most likely now be safe but for his plan to work 100% he wants to see Britney evicted on Thursday.  There are five people voting and only 2 for sure will be voting out Britney.

Dan and Jenn will of course vote out Britney as they have now formed an alliance with her and Frank.

But what of the other three votes?  Shane, Ian and Joe?

Since the plan by Jenn and Frank is to somewhat call out Ian when the POV is used (Frank is going to tell Britney to 'pop a squat'), I'd have to assume that he will be solidly in Britney's corner.

Will Joe and or Shane try to join a four person  alliance and vote out Britney?

If they do the math - like I have been - they'd be better to vote out Danielle - forcing Dan, Jenn and Frank into a three person alliance vs the other four and Frank can't play for HoH for 2 weeks.  Ian, and Shane have both won HoH and Britney has been close.  What have Dan and Jenn done?

It just depends on the way things play out from this afternoon to Wednesday night.  As of right now I could see it going either way.  As much as I wanted all the coaches out - I'd rather see Britney stay this week and have Danielle sent to the Jury House to spend some quality time with Ashley.

Your thoughts?  Do you think Joe will scurry over to Frank and Dan and be their third vote?  Will the Nomance resume and we'll see Shane vote out his own coach?

Its gonna be interesting.



You are dead to me (in this game).

After '24 hours' (not really quite that long), Dan came out of the Have Not room and acted like he was all disorientated and confused.  He then called a house meeting and announce he knew he was going home so this was his funeral.

He proceeded to say nice things about each HG and finished off with Ian, whom he compared to himself, Frank, who he said was his biggest adversary in the house, and Danielle.....  oh about Danielle.

Dan started out explaining that when he played with Memphis he could trust him to never hurt his game intentionally or unintentionally....  he then went on to talk about Danielle and said she had broken her trust with him and she knows what she did but he wasn't going to explain it - but from now on Danielle is 'dead to me in this game.'

He then wrapped up the meeting and went off to talk to Frank alone in the HoH room.

With Frank he proceeded to swear on everything that he was going to be truthful with him, explained all the things he had been involved in from the start, outted Ian and the 'quack pack' and then proposed Frank try to get Ian or Jenn to save him with the POV and the two of them work together for a final two alliance.  Dan hopes to see Britney put up in his place tomorrow if the veto can be used.

Frank seems to have taken this offer very seriously - not sure if he can get Ian or Jenn to use it as both seem quite unhappy with Dan's 'funeral' and the way he hurt Danielle.

Dan then went down to find Danielle - and told her it was all a set up - and Danielle - after being briefly upset - is now over it and will keep working with Dan - he has mostly been honest with her although I think he lied about how he felt sick after his solitary time.  He has told her he made a final 2 deal with Frank (that he apparently doesn't intend to keep).

If Dan pulls this off - he rockets right up to the top for his ability to manipulte - although you have to admit he has a perfect subject to work with in Danielle who is so ready to forgive him no matter how badly he treats her.

I could go on and on but its late.  Is this amazing gameplay by Dan?  Or is it going too far?


Pandora's Box and Nominations

CBS is promoting Pandora's Box for Sunday's show and currently Frank is locked out of the HoH -  when he is let in - expect the feeds to cut for "Pandora's Box" which I personally expect will help Dan's game since he is Frank's number one target this week.  The HGs are also locked out of the backyard so while Frank is in 'Pandora's Box' the other HGs will be doing something out back.  That MAY be shown on the feeds.

Frank says he wants Dan gone and will probably put him up against Danielle.

On the net many people are convinced that pandora's box will help Franks game but I can't see how right now - nor does it seem necessary since he will be in the house for at least 2 more weeks which puts us up to Sept 7th. 

The table has also been shrunk and Dan got Mozzarella and Matzo for his food.



Nominations are in. Have Nots too.

Frank has put up Joe and Wil.  I think Frank and Boogie are actually looking to get Wil out.

Before the nominations the Have Not competition was held and some details are a bit fuzzy but I do know that Shane, Danielle, Joe and Britney are have nots.  It seems like it was a repeated competition - involving moving liquid from small pools to bottles by soaking the liquid up and then squeezing it back out.  Britney commented on the costumes resembling lemons.

The Have Nots also get Candy Canes and Cod to eat this weak.  I hate the food thing, its just a stupid excuse to 'involve' America.

Joe really ticked off Britney and Danielle by yelling at them during the competition.  One reason I feel Franks and Boogie want to get Wil out is they discussed telling Joe to tone it down so as not to put such a huge target on himself.

One other note - Ashley has been in a ton of pain all day and has received more cortizone injections in her right hip area.  She's had difficulty walking today and didn't participate in the have not competition.  She's had issues since the first week.  Some really desperate fans hoped Janelle would come in and Ashley would go home - sorry guys - Janelle is already home according to a tweet tonight.


Shocker! (Not Really)

As Ash stated in her overnight report, the tide turned against Janelle late last night and an agreement was made to put her up. Yet plenty of feed watchers still had their doubts. Would Danielle actually make such a move, or would she chicken out?

Well, she did, putting Janelle up in place of Wil, and in her nominating speech apparently made a comment about how she's so "not a pawn". Janelle was completely obliviouis. Her day had started like most days - she slept in and never really had a chance to be clued in by others...or production. 

Like one would expect, Janelle attempted to confront Danielle immediately after the ceremony, denying that she had ever said anything about her and that she believed they were working together. She then confronted Britney and Dan, and both of them denied knowing anything about this plan. She's now attempting to gather votes, and it seems to me that many are just blowing smoke up her ass. Wil has told her she has his vote, which is a complete lie, but now Joe is telling her that Wil is lying.

So what do y'all think of this big move? Are you shocked that a person that in some of our eyes is pretty useless has actually made a truly controversial move? Give us your thoughts!
