First, New York City fireman Tom Westman dominated the other contestants on his way to winning Survivor: Palau. Now, Las Vegas fireman Eric Littmann looks to be doing the same thing on Big Brother 6. Not only is Eric head-of-household this week, but he is firmly in charge of the game.
Eric calls the other houseguests together and gives them pep talks about winning. Eric tells the other houseguests to ration their food. Eric decides who goes and when. While the other houseguests were still settling in and getting to know each other, Eric organized several of the men into an alliance. However, when Eric noticed that several of the female houseguests were becoming upset with Michael Donnellan, he turned on his initial alliance and put Michael up for elimination.
Currently, Eric Littmann looks like almost a sure thing to bring home the title of Big Brother 6. Here is how he has set things up to win the whole game. First, he has his secret partner Maggie Ausburn, who is definitely loyal to him until the end. Second, he has earned the trust of Ivette Corredero, who will also control the vote of her secret partner Beau Beasley. Third, both April Lewis and Jennifer Vasquez have come to look at Eric as a protector and confidant. Eric has five solid supporters who will follow his lead.
In addition to his five solid supporters, Eric also seems to be in control of James Rhine, who will also control the vote of his secret partner Sarah Hrejsa. Meanwhile, Howie Gordon and Rachel Plencner seem to be willing to follow the direction of the majority of the house. With nine people voting in accordance with Eric’s direction, Eric will first pick off Michael Donnellan, then Janelle Pierzina, and then Kaysar Ridha. Then, Eric will pick off Howie & Rachel and James & Sarah before they even see it coming.
When it is down to the final six, Eric will direct his attention toward eliminating April & Jennifer because they will be the most athletic of the remaining houseguests. Then, it will be easy for him to finish off Ivette & Beau in the competitions. Thus, leaving Eric Littmann and his secret partner Maggie Auburn as the last two houseguests standing.
Will Eric continue his domination of the Big Brother 6 contest? The next episode of Big Brother 6 airs on Tuesday, July 19, 2005 at 9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT.
