Big Brother 14 Recap: Froot Loops, What ‘Grown-Ass’ Men Eat

July 19, 2012 07:34 PM by Ryan Haidet

The first live eviction slammed the house on tonight’s episode of Big Brother 14.  But the real reason most people watch this show is for the fighting.  And the house was really blasted with the first verbal battle of the season, which brought up a weird argument about “grown-ass” men eating Froot Loops.  It all started because of speculation Britney had confided in Willie that she believes herself and the three other coaches will be welcomed into the game as full-fledged players soon.  That idea came when Britney noticed that the coach pictures on the Memory Wall also had keyholes next to them just like all of the new houseguests.  She also pointed out the amount of time left and how it doesn’t work out to only have 10 active players eligible for the $500,000 prize after this week.  How did the vocal explosion erupt after this and who was evicted from the house?  Read on to find out!

Not Keeping A Secret

After Britney asked Willie to keep her thoughts a secret, he quickly called a house meeting — but didn’t invite the coaches.  Willie finally did the smartest thing I’ve seen in the house all summer and told all of the newbies to start playing the game for themselves.  He warned everybody that the coaches could (and probably will) return to the game in coming weeks and could be in front of them and their $500,000 grand prize.  He suggested they take the game by the horns themselves and worry about their own personal strategies — not those of the veterans.  While almost everybody seemed to nod in agreement, and Ian adding that it’s a likely possibility considering how few active players are currently in the game, Joe thought everybody was speculating too much.  And then, Wil foolishly said that he was taking 24 hours off from thinking about the game.  Excuse me?  What?  I’m sorry, Wil.  You aren’t a true player.  To make that statement in front of all your fellow competitors is absolutely stupid.  It shows them you’re not 100 percent head-first into the game.  All you have is a well-pedicured toe dipped into the surface.  If you’re in the game and you’re a serious player, you should always be thinking about the game — especially when you’re dealing with nearly every human being involved in said game.

These moments were all just small events leading up to the big explosion.  It all started to go down hill when Willie told several people in the HoH bedroom, including Frank, about Wil’s comments that he wanted to take 24 hours off from the game.  I haven’t been a big fan of Willie’s, but I actually think he was right in pointing that out.  It’s a weakness of Wil’s that needs to be discussed.  But Frank took offense to the way Willie sounded when talking about Wil — almost as if he was mocking him.  I didn’t take it that way whatsoever.  In fact, I was happy Willie made the point.

Definitely upset about it, Frank went and told Joe and Jenn about Willie’s remarks.  Joe quickly went and told Wil, who was clearly upset that he was being mocked.  He said in the Diary Room that he wouldn’t stand for that and was going to be “damn sure” Willie’s actions come back to bite him in the butt.

It’s On!

When Willie was told that Frank was rallying people against him, he went to the backyard and started yelling.  He told Frank that all he has been doing for the entire week is asking people to vote to keep him in the house.  He repeatedly told Frank that he was on his side all along.  But Frank made a solid point by saying that he had been promised safety but still wound up on the block by the guy who cut him the deal.  Trying to keep the fight in his favor, Willie rose to his feet and started screaming at Frank saying he hopes everybody changes their vote and decides to take him out of the game instead of Kara.

Then things got strange.  Willie started talking about how he’s a “grown-ass man” who should be allowed to go downstairs and eat Froot Loops whenever he wants to.  Huh?  You’re making an argument about being a “grown-ass man” and then you refer to a child’s sugary breakfast cereal to prove your point?  I’m guessing you just like digging to the bottom of the box for the prizes.  You know, the thing “grown-ass” men do.  “I can’t reach the toy car.  Poo!”  Weird, right?

This is when Boogie stepped into the argument and asked Willie who made him king of the house.  After a few more words were hurled around the backyard, things quieted down.

The First Live Eviction

All of the fighting surrounding Frank, and very limited scenes with Kara, it almost seemed like the surfer-looking dude was toast. In their plea to the house, Frank said, “Nobody should let a bully dictate how they play this game or how you vote.  ‘Cause bullying is not OK outside this house or inside this house.”  Kara told everybody that she’s played an honest game thus far, but honestly, I’ve seen no game from her at all.  Her game has been Dan’s.  And when the house voted, it was close.  Here’s how it all played out:

  • Danielle: Frank.
  • Shane: Frank.
  • Joe: Kara.
  • Ian: Kara.
  • JoJo: Frank.
  • Jenn: Kara.
  • Wil: Kara.
  • Ashley: Kara.

With that, Kara was evicted from the house.  Immediately after she was booted, the Twitterverse went nutty with some hilarious comments.  One person said Kara is too hot to be evicted.  Another commented that they vote to evict Boogie’s hat.  What did you Tweet?

What “Grown-Ass” Men Do

The HoH competition swirled around questions concerning late-night videos that had been splashed onto the living room screen throughout the night of a Hamburgler-looking dude (who clearly likes his hamburgers) doing disgusting things all throughout the house.  By the second question, the contest was already down to two: Frank and Wil.  A few questions later, Frank went from the bottom of the house to the suite by claiming the second HoH.  When Willie had to hand over the key, he did what “grown-ass” men do and pouted.  He wouldn’t even look Frank in the eye.  He passed the key off and walked away from everybody else and pouted as the others offered Frank a congratulatory hug. Oh, Willie.  Just go eat your Froot Loops.  People will respect your adult ways much more then.

One Final Twist

Right before the credits rolled, Julie Chen revealed that the coach who wins this week’s coach’s challenge would have a big decision on their hands.  They can either choose to trade one of their players for another.  Eh, who cares?  I’m tired of this coaches thing already.  If they are going to be welcomed into the game like everybody is anticipating, then it needs to be done sooner than later.  All this free pass jazz isn’t jivin’ with me.  I don’t think it’s fair at all.

What did you think of tonight’s episode?  Are you happy Frank was spared from elimination?  Do you like Willie so far?  What is your definition of a “grown-ass man”?  Sound off and leave a comment below!

    I am thinking all the blustering is going to blow all the “grown ass men” out of the race and all that will be left will be the little “girlie men” and the girls. Then we will be watching cat fights and soap operas. I was hoping to see more mission impossible and not so much payton place. Come on Big Brother- come up with some better twists.

    Did anyone else notice Kara sitting on the couch in one of the scenes as the houseguests were woken up at night to see the cat burglar videos? If she was evicted prior to that happening, why would she be in one of those scenes? I’m confused, but I think it had something to do with pre recorded segments and the live eviction. My wife was the one to notice.

    I think the game is playing out really well for Frank. Three times tonight he got lucky:
    1. He was not evicted.
    2. He won HOH
    3. He is now not eligible to be traded which means it works out really well for him and Boogie.

    The way everyone voted really makes a statement about how everyone is playing. Frank is an individual player despite having Boogie as a coach and he has expressed his individual game many times. Kara is playing Dan’s game which pretty much says that she is working the the coach’s game: the opposite way! I think that everyone that voted for Frank to be evicted is really smart, he is a threat. Danielle, Shane, and Jojo are aware that Frank needs to go even though he is a lovable guy. I can’t wait to see what their strategies are from here on out.

    I honestly hope Frank goes all the way. It be great to see a nice honest person win this stupid show for a change. I tune in every now and again when nothing else is on and well. He got me. Thanks, Frank! Good Luck!
