You don’t tug on Superman’s cape. You don’t spit into the wind. You don’t pull the mask off the old lone ranger. And you don’t mess around with King Kaysar. In what will go down as the greatest strategic move in Big Brother history, it took Kaysar Ridha all of one week to avenge the elimination of his secret partner Michael Donnellan.
In the early stages, this season of Big Brother looked to be shaping up to be a snoozer. Eric Littmann seemed to be fully in control of the house and the elimination process. Then, King Kaysar won the head of household competition and proceeded to turn the game upside down.
Instead of going straight after Eric, Kaysar shocked the house by nominating James Rhine and Maggie Auburn. A move designed to expose the secret pairs and break up the strongest alliance in the house. The plan plays out to perfection as Eric and James turned on one another. In a move to save himself, James comes clean and tells Kaysar that Sarah Hrejsa is his girlfriend. This opens up the door for Kaysar to create an alliance of six consisting of himself, James Rhine, Sarah Hrejsa, Janelle Pierzina, Howie Gordon, and Rachel Plencner.
King Kaysar’s alliance plots to win the power of veto competition in order to pull James off the block and put up Eric instead. Captain Eric and his sheep are completely oblivious to the plan until James picks Janelle as his partner in the power of veto competition. It is only fitting that the power of veto competition turns out to be a chess competition. Watching Eric and his sheep slowly realize the game has turned as the others quickly swarm to eliminate Maggie and Ivette from the power of veto competition is priceless.
Even after James wins the power of veto and it becomes obvious what is happening, Maggie doesn’t quite catch on and accuses Kaysar of sealing her fate. Kaysar replies, “No. I sealed your partner’s fate. I caught the bigger fish.” Maggie turns pale as only then does she begin to realize that Kaysar has figured out every secret partner and is in complete control of the game. An infuriated Eric demands that Kaysar look him in the eye and tell him if he’s going up to which Kaysar calmly replies, “That’s my pick.”
In the power of veto ceremony, James uses the power of veto to save himself. Kaysar then proceeds to put Eric up in James’ place. With Kaysar in control of the majority of votes in the house, Eric’s elimination looks to be virtually sealed. Tune into Big Brother on CBS at 8P.M. ET on Thursday, July 28, 2005 to see what promises to be a very entertaining Big Brother elimination.
