Big Brother #14, Episode 14 Recap

Apparently, there is a strike of sorts going on tonight. As we talked about on last night's Big Brother Gossip Show, there was a short diary room leak to the house that could have potentially informed the entire house of the "Secret Six" alliance.

Nothing really came out of this leak besides a line of questioning from Joe, and Janelle was still evicted on Thursday. That hasn't stopped at least one website, and a number of that person's followers, from claiming that they are now boycotting the feeds and tonight's show. The claim is that enough angry tweeters will be enough for CBS to cut out the production interference in the casting, game design, feeds, and the actual broadcast.

Isn't that cute? I'm all for grassroots behind-the-scenes involvement by fans and critics, but nothing will change even if every single person who uses the #bb14 hashtag suddenly disappear from the Nielsen counters. If you're a part of this movement, more power to you, and at least you'll still know what happens from this recap. I'll happily watch so you don't have to.

In case you're not aware of the typical Sunday night template, you're going to see reactions to Thursday's eviction and HOH competition, some plotting, a HOH room reveal (zzzz), a Have-Not competition, more plotting, and nominations. Hopefully, there won't be any fake showmance filler, but I'm not holding my breath.

Here we go with a flashback to Janelle's eviction. Frank wonders how he has managed to survive through three nominations, while Joe SCREAMS his displeasure at the 8-1 vote. "NOW I'M ON AN ISLAND ALL BY MY LONESOME SELF!" Shut up! Wil adds that he was quite confident that nothing would come out of voting against his former coach, so why not join them to keep from being a target? (Foreshadow alert!)

With Janelle gone, we have to have the typical idiotic celebration dance from Boogie and Frank. "Ding dong, the witch is dead", says Boogie. Yes, we know about your All-Star eviction, Mike. "It's safe to say...I'm on top of the house."

Meanwhile, Britney is crying that she helped evict a friend, an ally, a lifelong sister. Then why did you do it, you silly twit? Joe is then seen pacing around the house, and Ashley tells him that she is sorry, but he just brushes her off as he wanders past.

We then jump to Frank's HOH victory, and another silly Chilltown celebration. Yes, we know, Frank. You've gone from almost-evicted to HOH twice now. For some reason, we have to also hear Danielle complain that she better be safe. (No foreshadowing here.) Joe, however, knows he's in trouble...and slowly yells once again. Dan believes that this week will be the Silent Six's ultimate test to see if they really are a team.

Joe has gone right into the bedroom, and in the diary room complains "there are some despicable human filth in this house". He lies on the bed as his rant continues on, but he knows he's in trouble. Frank wanders in to ask him a cooking question, but Joe clearly doesn't want to help with the cooking.

Britney is also sad, still crying about evicting Janelle. Danielle attempts to calm her down by coldly saying "you're that closer to the money". Britney thinks that Frank is going to win the game, but Danielle counters that everybody will be gunning for him...which may be the smartest thing she's said all season. Britney isn't buying it however. "If he's in the final three, it's over. Sign the check." Danielle, though, says she's beaten him twice, and can do it again. Um, wow.

Frank and Boogie are now plotting their week, and the goal is to "really work Wil". Frank, though, wants to put up Joe and Dan, which makes Boogie laugh. Frank's view is that after last week's attempt at a blindside, maybe he should know what it feels like. Cooler heads prevail, though, as Boogie explains how they're going to need Dan and Danielle's votes.

HOH reveal time. No need to recap this.

Wil and Ash are now talking, and Ash has suddenly awakened. She just now has realized she voted out somebody who is "on my side. Now it's just me and Wil playing this game alone." Really? Who are these people? Joe joins them to find out why they voted against Janelle. Wil says he didn't have any deal for his vote, and explains it's because he has a big mouth AND being her only vote makes Joe a big target. Ash also babbles something, but it's not a human language. Joe figures that the three of them are the only possible candidates for nomination.

Filler time, as Shane and Frank talk about dreams. Um, no way I'm going on about that idiocy. Even worse, it's followed by out-of-context fake showmance shit with Danielle and Shane. Please, they are NOT a showmance!!!

Thankfully, this segment is now over and we're back to game talk...kind of. Boogie is gloating how the last three evictions...or exits have been people he didn't want around. Frank and Boogie are feeling Dan out about putting one of their own up as a pawn to "disguise" their big alliance, and Dan wants no part of being that pawn. "I'm such a threat in this house that if I'm on the block I'm going home." Boogie's response? "You don't trust your alliance, huh?" Would you?

More filler time, as Britney and Boogie talk about how Danielle hates mornings. We also have to endure talk of her idiocy about calling herself a school teacher, and Boogie lets it out that he doesn't believe that story anyway. He believes she's either in medical school or is a nurse. The only good part of this conversation is Britney's super short shorts, and sitting in a non-classy position.

On to another big topic of the last couple of days - Ashley's medical issues. She has awful back spasms that make it so she can barely move, so the boys have to help her move around the house. "I am very lucky I have two muscular man-crutches", she says. "I feel very blessed to have everybody be so kind to me."

As if there's not enough filler in this episode, we have a have-not competition. Since Ashley is injured, she can either play or have Frank play for her. She goes with Frank. Bandanas and hats are handed to Ian, who is immediately tackled.

This week's game features everybody dressed as giant limes and lemons, and there's a lemon pond. The lemon team is Joe, Britney, Shane, Danielle, and Jenn dressed as a farmer. The rest are the limes, with Frank as the farmer. The competition has everybody soaking up juice from the big pond, and they must squeeze their juice into the jars of the other team. Boogie whispers to his team to also fill their mouths with the juice to spit into the jar.

Britney and Danielle don't want to be have-nots, as you may expect. Also, in case you didn't understand how the game works, Dan yelled it out once again in the diary room. Once the game began, it became the farmers job to help squeeze the juice out of the costumes. Danielle is appalled that a lesbian is now humping her. Oh please. I'm sure you've had those fake lesbian bar kisses to get the attention of the boys.

There are plenty of other thinly-veiled gay jokes, and even more Britney bitching. Joe doesn't appear to be doing much other than sitting in the pool, which has Daniele whining, and Ian is bummed that this would have been a possibility for Ashley to be on top of him. Ugh, even more fake showmance stuff as we see Danielle and Shane hugging to get juice.

Jenn's team is far behind, but suddenly the other team has a kink in their hose. Maybe they has a shot in the game! Frank discovers the kink, but it is now almost even. Finally, the game ends with a victory for the lemons! The Have-nots for this week are Shane, Danielle, Britney, and Joe (who complains and complains).

They walk into the house to discover their food for the week, which is candy canes and cod. Cue more whining from Danielle, but Britney isn't so upset.

Joe now heads up to talk to Frank. He says that since he's alone in the game, this could be good for his game. He also wants Frank to think about loyalty, and also how "there is not a soul that (Wil) has not lied to...if it is in my power I will try to get him out before I leave here".

My God, even more filler after another commercial. Seriously, people diving into the pool with a mini-basketball is worthy footage?

Ok, back to the game. Wil heads into the HOH to "grab your ear for a hot second". He says he expects to go up, and there's no hard feelings. Boogie goes on about going after duos at a certain point, and that their focus is on Joe. Frank asks who Wil wants to go after Joe's departure? Wil demurs, saying it's a "dangerous question", and that he believes there is a large group working together. He refrains from commenting on who he wants to go out, and Boogie is flabbergasted after he leaves. Suddenly, he is the target...although Frank still wants to get revenge on Dan. Boogie counsels that they are still not considered trustworthy, and it is not the right time to do this. "When you make a run at somebody like that, it has to be definite." For the CBS footage, though, Frank reminds us that it is still his decision as to who is nominated.

Finally, it is nomination time. We get the usual silliness from those that may be put up, including Dan (yeah, right), before everybody is pulled in. The first key pulled belongs to Britney, followed by Danielle, Shane, Ashley, Jenn, Ian, Dan, and Boogie. Yes, Wil and Joe are nominated! Frank says he nominated Joe because he voted against him against Janelle, and Wil's nomination is due to a "big ol' fib" he told him the previous week.

Wil says that everybody in the house has lied, and he's a "not classy hypocrite", and Frank says that Wil is the one who will be going home this week. Dan claims to be surprised that he wasn't nominated, as you really can't trust Boogie. "He's done a lot of diabolical things in this game." Joe screams that he's not done, as "revenge is a dish that's best served cold!" Ugh make it stop.

That's it, strikers and non-strikers! What did you think of tonight's show? Way too much filler for you, too? Give us your thoughts!

Big Brother #14, Episode 13 Recap

Willie May stumbling in the outfield during the 1973 World Series. Brett Favre hobbling off the Metrodome turf after his millionth interception. The surviving Beatles adding computer-enhanced vocals to John Lennon demos. Johnny Unitas being sandwiched by defensive linemen on play after play in a San Diego Chargers uniform. The entire roster of actors that co-star on TV Land “original” shows.

These are just some of the embarrassing codas to otherwise legendary careers, and tonight we say goodbye to another type of superstar. Sure, calling a reality television star a “legend” is kind of silly, but Janelle Pierzina is one of a handful who could make that claim. A blonde, athletic beauty, Janelle’s two earlier appearances were full of must-see TV moments. Ultimately, she lost both times, but her competition prowess and sexy swagger made her the only Big Brother cast member to win two “Favorite House Guest” awards.

She will be leaving us tonight primarily for having lost that touch that endeared her to both viewers and fellow players in her previous season. Her fibs betrayed any appearance of honesty. Emotionally, she was a stiff who spent more time sleeping than she did interacting with others. Most importantly, she failed to sniff the changing crosswinds in the house, and was ultimately outplayed by her most hated rival, Mike “Boogie” Malin. Like everybody listed in that above paragraph, the instincts and reflexes were just not there this season.

Before we get to that moment where thousands of hardcore fans smash their televisions and leap off their balcony, we have lots of silliness to plow through. Yes, it is reaction time. How did Janelle and the rest of the house feel about the shocking move to replace Wil’s nomination with Janelle?

Like always, it depends on who is doing the talking. Janelle is shocked, especially since “she is not even on my radar, and now she definitely is”. She’s going to do what she needs to do to say. Britney notes that unlike usual veto meetings, everybody is kind of frozen in “shock and horror…but the truth of the matter is, nobody is truly shocked except for Janelle”.

Wil screams in celebration while in the diary room, and promises to bake a cherry pie in celebration. Britney, though, rushes into the bedroom where Janelle is reading the Bible (lol) to pretend like she has no clue this was going to happen. At the same time, Boogie asks the camera if he can take a bow. “Danielle thinks she’s the head of household this week, but basically I just took over her HOH and got everybody to do what I wanted.”

Danielle is now in the HOH, and Janelle rushes in to ask why she was put up. Danielle claims that “everybody” has been telling her that Janelle is after her, and is lying to her. “I’ve never said to anybody in this house that I’m coming after her.” Janelle knows that people have been feeding lies to her, as “she could never come up with this on her own”. She immediately blames Dan, but Danielle claims she hasn’t talked to him all day, and that she’ll probably survive the week anyway.

Dan now joins Danielle in the HOH, and yells in the diary room that she has graduated from the Dan School of Big Brother. Oh please. She recounts the conversation with Janelle. Well, she sort of tells him, exaggerating just a little bit.

Dan now pulls Janelle into the storage room, and claims that he has no idea what caused her nomination. It’s just a girl thing, he says, and he probably won’t be able to vote to save her because it would piss her off. Janelle thinks that she only needs two more votes, and Dan says any coach is screwed if they’re put up.

Boogie interrupts the conversation by coming in for some milk, and takes his time before leaving. Janelle repeats her complaint that she didn’t even put on makeup because she had no clue this was coming in, and after leaving the storage room she says she’s confident she can get the votes.

She heads into the lounge with Wil and Joe, who both claim that they’ll be voting for her. She also tells Jenn that she wouldn’t target her if she stays, and also whines to Ashley that she hopes she wouldn’t vote her out.

Now that she believes she has the votes, she pulls Britney into the lounge to verify that she has her vote. She runs down all the votes she has, and Britney replies that she believes there may be some things happening that she’s not aware of. Janelle adds that the coaches “need to stick together, or we’ll have no shot”. Britney says in the diary room that not only is Janelle making her feel bad, but she’s “making some really good sense. She’s not coming after me. She’s not coming after the coaches. Why am I voting out someone who is an ally and an asset to me in this game?”

Britney races to the HOH, and cries that she can’t “keep up this charade any longer. I feel like a bad, bad person.” Dan, Shane, and Danielle don’t seem to really care for what she has to say, even when she asks why they’re voting her out. “When she doesn’t need you, she avoids you and treats you like crap”, replies Danielle in between bites of Cheez-its.

After commercials, it is time for the dreaded house interview. As predicted on last week’s Big Brother Gossip Show, the first question goes to Frank’s “spiritard”. He’s even made to give a cheer. Gag me now. Boogie is then asked about how he wasn’t happy with the game reset, but he says he’s feeling better about it now. “I did a little work this week, and I think I’m feeling better about it.”

Wait, a question to Jenn??? Wow, shocker! She’s asked about competing with the coaches, and she says she’s “just living on a prayer”. She also claims that she believes her chances are better now that she’s on her own. Oh, I’m sure that will be discussed later tonight.

Ugh, and as also predicted on the Big Brother Gossip Show, we have to sit through a montage of Ian as a dog. He says he’s been loving every minute of his time in the house, and “it wouldn’t be the full Big Brother experience without a penalty costume”.

OMG, more filler – the fake romance between Ian and Ashley…complete with their parents. Gross, and CBS should be ashamed for this selective editing. Wait, his mom thinks the house is “scared” of him??? Bwahahahahah!

As they say on BBUK, it’s “crunch time”. Frank gets to make the first plea, and he claims that he’s played the game “like a gentleman”. Mama told him to “keep it classy”, and he says he’s done just that. Ooof, even Julie says that he sounds like Ron Burgendy.

Janelle is up next, and she says she loves “all of you”, and would be willing to help anybody with their game if they keep her. Otherwise, no hard feelings if she does leave tonght.

The live voting then commences with Boogie, who obviously votes to evict Janelle, as does Jenn. Joe, though, votes to evict Frank, but Wil, Ashley, Britney, Shane, kiss-ass Dan, and Ian all vote to evict Janelle. She’s out by a 8-1 vote!

Julie makes her announcement, and Janelle calmly hugs all (saying “it’s just a game”) before heading out the door to a huge cheer! Mickey Mantle has left the building! Julie notes that she kept it classy, and Julie notes that she isn’t nearly as surprises as she was when nominated. She says she’s out because she’s a strong player, which is a compliment. While she is being cool and calm, what is with the little girl voice that she’s using? Julie also asks why she hit the reset when she still had three players in the game, and it’s just because she wanted to play.

Frank is the next topic, and she says that she was “scared of him” because he was such a strong player. It may have hurt her a little in the game, but he was also the focus of others. Janelle is then asked about the fateful coach’s meeting n the HOH, and she says she “didn’t want to throw Wil or Joe under the bus”. This leads into her rivalry with Boogie, but while he got her this time the “target is too big on him to win the game this time. I’m rooting for Dan. I love Dan.”

The goodbye messages then roll, and Dan explains how her unwilling to sacrifice her teammates is what cost her. Britney whines about how she feels bad about being a part of the plan, and Joe does his customary nonsensical screaming. He promises to avenge her eviction. Boogie brags that she shouldn’t blame the others – “this one was all me. So for the third time, always the bridesmaid but never the Big Brother bride.” Janelle’s response? “He’s such a loser. What a douchebag. Screw you, Mike Boogie.”

Ok, it’s now HOH competition time, and it’s a “knockout” type question game called “Big Brother Battle of the Bands”. Hmmm, this would be a perfect title for a game that Jenn wins. A song is played, and then the players choose whether the song describes a HOH, Coach, or Veto competition. A right answer means you remain for the next round; the wrong answer means the other player remains.

The game starts with Wil versus Jenn, and they’re both confused before Wil correctly answers that it was a HOH song. He chooses Boogie versus Joe in the next round, and Boogie correctly chooses a veto song. He then picks Wil versus Ashley, who almost flashes us. Ashley is first this time, and she is right on with her HOH guess.

Ashley is completely confused about what she has to do next, and finally picks Britney and Shane for the next round. Britney is the first to ring in, and she is also right on with her coach choice. Ash and Ian are now up, and Ian correctly picks Coach. He then picks Dan and Britney, and this time Britney is right with HOH. Frank and Boogie then face each other, and Boogie immediately hits veto before the song even starts. He’s obviously wrong, and Ian and Britney now have to face each other.

They both leap at the button at the same time, but Britney is just a split second early with the correct veto pick. It’s now Frank versus Britney for the HOH victory, and Frank picks veto. Yes, he is right…and Frank is the new HOH!!!

There is one final segment in the show, with Julie talking to Frank. It’s a pretty worthless couple of minutes, and that’s it for this episode. What did you think of tonight’s show? Are you sad to see Janelle hit the road? Give us your thoughts!

Big Brother #14, Episode 12 Recap

“How does it feel

To treat me like you do

When you’ve laid your hands upon me And told me who you are

I thought I was mistaken

I thought I heard your words

Tell me how do I feel

Tell me now how do I feel” – New Order, “Blue Monday”

From an album, Power Corruption and Lies, that could also be the title of tonight’s episode, “Blue Monday” was the breakout track for a band that before that moment lived in the shadows of their former incarnation, Joy Division. Ignored by music critics, this track made them international superstars.

While not nearly as talented as any member of this band, tonight’s episode is Danielle’s “Blue Monday”. Ignored by most of the house, and laughed at by the live feed viewers, the nurse/teacher/would-be Miss Alabama’s reign as HOH was seen by EVERYBODY as nothing more than an opportunity for others to do their dirty work under her name.

Yet tonight’s episode sees the girl with a thousand diseases take control of the house and use it to make the biggest move of the season so far. Sure, her reasoning was more catty than strategic, but tonight’s show does end with her accomplishing something that arguably nobody else would have dared attempted. The question remains, though, will this ultimately be a good move?

Before we get to the shocking conclusion, we have lots of filler to sit through, starting off with the reactions to Danielle’s nominations of Frank and Wil. For once, there is a funny comment in these diary room statements. “All good southern girls go to heaven”, says Wil, “but nasty southern belles go to hell.”

Danielle explains that Wil is just a pawn, because she wants Frank out the door. Frank, though, says he’s been “dodging bullets” all season, and just wants to save himself in the veto. “Then I’m going after Dan and Danielle.” Dan, though, just wants to keep the nominations the same.

Wil heads up into the diary room, where he hugs a crying Danielle. He says it is ok, but he is still worried as most pawns end up going home. He even tries to tell her it is a relief, as “I’m not really cut out for this game”. Danielle reassures him that everybody indeed loves him.

Frank and Boogie are now in their usual spot in the house, in the nomination chairs laughing at their misfortune. “I think it’s the hair, dog”, says Boogie. Beneath their jokes, Frank says he’s frustrated. They both complain about how they’re so over Danielle, Dan, and Janelle. Hell, they’re over everybody, actually. Adding to their paranoia, Boogie thinks there is a chance he’s being set up to be backdoored.

Now Janelle heads up to the HOH to supposedly use the bathroom, but instead whines to Dan about Boogie. We talked about this on last Saturday’s Big Brother Gossip Show, so there isn’t much need to go through this conversation…just like the next scene of Dan confronting Boogie about his attitude towards the other coaches.

After commercials, Ian comes into the HOH to talk to Danielle and Britney because he’s “feeling really alone...I’d like to be in one of the (groups)”. Britney asks if he would be willing to vote out Boogie at some point, and he says that he would do just that. Britney adds that he would have to be 100% committed to any group he adds, and she does admit in the diary room that she’s not completely sold.

Dan now joins the conversation, and says that he really likes Ian. “Are you truly reset and away from Team Boogie?” Ian admits that he does like Frank a lot. Truthfully, the conversation ends with little settled.

Time to pick veto players – Danielle pulls out Shane’s name, Frank gets Jenn, and Wil gets Ian. Boogie is not happy, as he is “basically alone”. Yes, Boogie’s other two players are in this event, but neither Ian or Jenn “have shown much competition prowess”. The host for the competition will be Dan.

Frank runs into Janelle in the bathroom, and asks her if she still believes he wants all the coaches out. A disinterested Janelle says she has no idea what he wants as they have never talked, but does follow up with that very question. She says that she “definitely wants to work with a strong player, as I have no one”. Silly Britney wanders downstairs and is shocked to see Janelle actually talking with the very person she wants out, and scampers back upstairs to tattle.

Oh how the tide has turned, as Danielle gets to jump back on the anti-Janelle bandwagon. “She infuriates me.” Dan is upset because he wants to unite all the coaches, and is pissed that Britney is making such a big deal about “one talk”.

It’s now veto competition time, and the backyard is in a baseball theme. Danielle’s panties are immediately wet because she thinks Shane looks “so cute” in a baseball uniform. “I hope I can focus on my game.” Please gag me with the fake relationship shit.

To play this game, a ball rolled down a ramp into a diamond-shaped structure. At the end of each round, the lowest score is out. They then get to go claim their prize, but future “losers” get to take whatever they have “won”. Yes, it is a variation of a comp that happens every single year.

Ian has decided that he is going to throw this comp, as he has no clue yet who he is working with. He then rolls a three, but Shane only gets a two. Jenn, who says she actually wants to win this game, rolls a nine, and Danielle gets a four. Wil ends the round with a six, which means that Shane is out in the first round. His prize is the veto, but at least he is smart enough to realize he won’t be holding onto it long.

In the second round, Ian scores a perfect twenty. Jenn gets a six, as does Danielle. Will nabs a five, while Frank hits a nine. Wil is now out, and his prize is a “veto ticket”, which guarantees that he plays next week. After a handful of Cracker Jacks, he does trade for the veto.

For the third round, Jenn gets a two, Danielle nabs a ten, and Frank’s score is a four. Ian’s roll if a five, which makes Jenn this round’s loser. Her prize is a Maui vacation, and she elects to keep it. Britney isn’t impressed.

Round four kicks off with a nine for Danielle and Frank, while Ian only gets a four. He’s now out, and his prize is a “dog’s life”, where he has to wear a dog costume and do nothing but stupid dog tricks. He’s already smiling, and does elect to keep the prize…which infuriates Boogie.

In the final round, Frank rolls an eight…but Danielle beats him by rolling a ten! Frank’s prize is five grand, but he trades for the veto. Danielle’s prize is a “spiritard”, but obviously she trades it for the veto. Yes, Frank has to wear this year’s version of the “unitard”. Frank is bummed, but Boogie claims he still has some tricks up his sleeve.

After the comp, Boogie and Dan head into the lounge to chat. “I just got beat by a sorority girl in a POV”, complains Frank. They talk about how no matter what they do, they have to get Dan on board for any plan. “I wish I could talk him into putting up Janelle”, says Boogie. “I want Janelle out of here.” They know this will take work, but they’re going to do their best.

First, though, we have to endure the filler for this episode – the “spiritard” and the dog costume. Yes, Ian, you are the Big Brother house pet. Actually, you have been all season. Yes, hilarity ensures.

Ok, back to the game, as Jenn and Dogboy head into the HOH. Oh wait, Jenn just brings the puppy up to the room, and then leaves so he can “solidify my alliance” with Dan, Shane, Britney, and Danielle. Dan screams that he loves the idea, but we have to sit through the idiocy of picking an alliance name. Their decision? The Quck Pack. Shoot me now.

Hilarity finished, Boogie now comes in the HOH to talk to Danielle. He wants to take out a really, really, really dangerous player out, and Danielle’s eyes light up when she finally figures out that he’s talking about Danielle. This way, next week when she can’t play she has “five warriors”. Danielle says she worries that Boogie will turn against her, but Boogie claims it would never happen.

Boogie then has the same conversation with Dan, and he knows that this will take more work. Funny thing is Janelle walks into the HOH just as they start the conversation. Boogie launches into how she will never “be workable”, and that he feels like he is “selling water in the Mojave desert”. Janele returns, but this time she is with Britney. Boogie tries to give the girls the boot, but they won’t budge. Janelle, though, is now rah rah Boogie, who outright says he doesn’t trust her. He isn’t willing to send Frank home to work with people that “have done nothing for me”.

Dan tries to mediate, but Boogie says he can’t trust Joe. So why not put up Joe in place of Frank? Janelle doesn’t respond, which Dan screams in the diary room it indicates she is lying. After this stalemate, the girls leave and even Dan admits that the coach alliance is never going to work. “It’s about time the two winners of the game got back on the same side.” Frank joins them in the HOH, and they celebrate their new partnership.

After the last commercial break, Danielle comes into the HOH and Dan tells her the story of what happened. Britney and Shane also join in…and eventually even Ian comes in. They go around the room to see what they think, and Ian says that while Boogie wouldn’t nominate any of them Janelle would have no problems with anybody in that room. “I think that it is much safer to get Janelle out of here because she’s much more likely to win HOH.” Wow, Ian. That is your biggest statement of the season. Danielle and Dan vote the same, while Britney and Shane are undecided.

Frank and Boogie now join the crew, and Britney says that she is worried what will happen if either Jenn or Wil win HOH. Once again, a name is more important than anything else, and they settle on “The Silent Six”. Gross.

But here comes Janelle! She knocks on the door, but nobody responds. Classy.

Finally, it is veto ceremony time…thankfully cut short so we could get that last scene in. Danielle calls everybody in, and we don’t even get the pleas from the nominees. “I have decided to use the power of veto to save Wil. This is nothing personal. It’s completely strategic.” Her replacement nominee is Janelle!

Britney pretends to be shocked as Danielle shuts the wooden veto box. Makeup-free, she gloats in the diary room, while Janelle complains that she felt so safe she didn’t even bother to put on makeup before the ceremony. “I would have put on a cute outfit, and actually washed my face and hair. I have no idea what happened, but I’m not going to go down without a fight.”

The show ends with Boogie and Frank doing their idiotic Chilltown II crap. Dammit, Boogie, just when I like you again.

So…what did you think of the show? How about those new alliances? Will Janelle leave the house tomorrow? Let us know your thoughts!

No Recap Tonight

Sorry, folks, but I'm not going to do a recap tonight. This will be pretty straightforward episode, and everything that happened has already been covered her (plus on last night's BBGossip show). 

If you still want to know what happened, here's my prediction on tonight's show structure:

8:00 - 8:03 pm EST. Announcer tells the entire story of the season, just in case you forgot.

8:03 - 8:10 pm EST. We see everybody on the endurance contraption, but it quickly shifts to the moment Julie announced that "America" (cough cough) had voted to allow them to enter the game. There will be flashbacks of them hitting (or not, in Boogie's case) the red button, accompanied by diary room cheers and jeers.

8:10 - 8:30 pm EST. The actual endurance comp. Again, pretty straightforward, with the exception of typical diary room comments (Joe and Dan screaming, Frank and Shane angry at themselves for dropping). Boogie discovering the plot to evict Frank will also be included, using footage involving conversations with Dan, Joe, and finally Boogie spilling it all to Frank. The culmination will be the negoitations between Ian, Britney, and Danielle, and finally, the "From Here To Eternity" kiss between Danielle and Shane (with Dan's suggestion that Shane do this edited out).

8:30 - 8:50 pm EST. Danielle's HOH room reveal (gag me) and her desire to nominate Janelle start the segment, before moving on to show the coaches working on Danielle. Interspersed in this footage will also be Boogie's growing anger over the Frank situation. The final commercial break will occur after we see Dan "coaching" Danielle on who should be nominated.

8:50 - 9:00 pm EST. Danielle reads the HOH nom script (not very well), with the proper dialogue from anybody who the editors have deemed the viewers may believe will be nominated. The show will then end with the nominations of Wil and Frank, with proper angry reactions from the nominees and Boogie, along with smug smiles from Danielle.

While tonight's episode is destined to be a snoozer, the real actions could be on Wednesday's show. As stated by Ash's report last night, there really is a movement to put up Janelle. Danielle is seemingly working with Shane AND Frank right now. Obviously, this plot is one conversation away from not happening, but it could enliven Wednesdya's episode! Turn those feeds on and view for yourself!
