Big Brother 14, Episode #20 – Ian’s Coming Out of His Shell
I’m still reeling from my last BB post. I’m also upset that Frank is still on the House after having a double eviction night where he should have left! Then Ian came out of the woodwork as a force Frank now has to deal with…it’s crazy! In this post, we find out how the House moves on from Boogie’s exit, and the fallout it potentially causes. Let’s see how everything plays out!
Britney has to play Ian’s bodyguard against Frank’s fury over Boogie’s departure. It was getting to the point where Frank was yelling at Ian, and Ian was trying to stand his own ground against Frank’s attacks.I guess Frank is taking a page out of Willie’s playbook. Remember what happened to him, Frank!
Frank was trying to get Shane on his side again. He realized he was now alone in this game. He wanted to split Shane and Britney up because Frank doesn’t trust Britney and wants her out of the House. Frank lied to Shane, blaming Boogie’s leaving the game on Dan. Frank also went so far as to say that if he wins HoH that he would nominate either Joe and Dan or Dan and Britney dependant on why Ian tried to get rid of him. Frank still doesn’t understand why Ian would make a decision like this, unless there was pressure put on him from either Britney or Dan. Frank still can’t trust them.
Shane let Britney in on what Frank told him, and they became worried about Frank being a force to be reckoned with. Britney decided it would be best for both of them to make a deal with Frank just in case he does win HoH this week. Britney then spoke with Frank. She made a deal with Frank to work together if he is HoH. Britney secretly hoped she wouldn’t have to keep this deal because she doesn’t trust Frank.
This week’s HoH Competition seemed as though it was rigged. Holes in Strings had the houseguests using strings to get a ball up a board with holes in it. After a ranking round, the houseguests competed two at a time up the board. The winner moved on to the next round. The winner would be the player who kept advancing through the rounds and beat everyone. Frank just kept winning round after round until he won the whole competition. The houseguests just couldn’t believe Frank’s luck, and it seemed too easy for him to win.
Britney went to Frank to solidify their deal. After a lot of talking, Frank came up with two people to nominate. Even though she really wanted Frank out of the House, Britney reluctantly agreed to have Dan and Danielle go up on the block.
When Frank went up to his HoH Room, he found Pandora’s Box waiting for him. He read a card that said if he chose to open Pandora’s Box, he could win $10 000. After some debate, he decided to open it, thinking the money was better than what could befall the rest of the House while he was in there. Out of the many boxes in the room, he could only choose three of them. I guess Frank’s luck ran out because he chose boxes that held $1.05, $7.11 and $3 333.33. He then had to remain in this room for one hour, separating him from the rest of the houseguests and whatever fate they were going to face.
Luckily for the houseguests, their fate wasn’t too bad. They had to collect fifty cents in change that fell from the sky in the BB backyard and take it to the claw machine. Within this machine, the cube with the question mark on it was replaced with a golden Veto ball. The player that was able to remove this ball from the machine would be able to be a secondary Veto at the Veto Ceremony. This is a lot of power to have this week, and since Frank was at the healm, everyone wanted to win it to possibly influence Frank’s nominations and Veto choice. Dan showed his true competative nature, shoving anyone getting in his way, and trying to make people think he won it. All of his work was for nothing as Ian, coming even more out of his shell, won this coveted prize.
Once Frank was released, they caught up with each other, explaining what they did during their time apart. Even though Frank doesn’t trust him, he took Ian to his HoH Room and told him about his plan for nominations. Ian told him to do what he wanted, trying to make Frank not want to put Ian up only to take himself off the block or to backdoor him.
Britney then took her minion aside, and discussed what Frank told him. Britney wanted to try to take Dan off the block. In the Diary Room, Ian confessed he was not sure if having Frank or Dan in the House was beneficial to his overall game. He, along with the rest of the House were worried about what Frank would decide where nominations were concerened.
At the Nomination Ceremony, Frank ravelled to the houseguests his decision. He chose to go along with his original plan and put Dan and Danielle up on the block. His reason was the most honest of anyone’s this season. He said it was payback for Boogie and Ashley leaving. Frank then went on to say that Dan wanted Frank out the House, so he had to strike now while he could. Danielle was just a person of circumstance. In other words, it’s punishment for being so closely aligned with Dan, but not the target. Everyone knew that honour was all for Dan.
Joy, oh joy. Another week with Frank as HoH makes me so happy. No, Readers, I’m not doing back flips. Frank needs to go, houseguests! He’s going to win this game if he doesn’t leave soon. Even though I don’t agree with his tactics, my fingers and toes are are crossed for Dan to come through this week and to win this game. I do have to tip my hat to Ian as he has seriously stepped up his game and is someone the other players have to now watch out for. Maybe he has a bit of luck on his side, but I thought he was out the door a while ago because he is so awkward within himself. How will Ian and Dan’s luck and BB skill play out for the rest of this week? Will Frank be able to finally get his nemesis, Dan, out of the House? Only way to find what happens is to follow my blog!
Until my next post, Readers!
