So far, all of the Big Brother 14 live eviction episodes have been held on Thursday nights — except for tonight. At the start of the hour, the final five contestants were gathered in the living room where Julie Chen told them they would be voting somebody out by the end of the night. But before we get to that point, there was a Power of Veto competition, which resulted in a surprise appearance by the USA women’s championship gymnastics team. None of that was nearly as entertaining as Julie’s verbal blip when she mispronounced a simple word, ongoing proof that she is only great with total guidance from producers. Wow. Just wow.
PoV Winner Meets USA Olympians
With Jenn and Shane on the chopping block, both of them wanted to win the PoV so they could save themselves. Dan was hoping anybody but Shane would win because that’s who he was hoping to blindside this week. In the end, Shane won the PoV, which also came with a special prize — a chance to meet the five female gymnastics stars from Team USA. Shane chose Danielle to go along with him for the experience, which took them outside of the house for the first time in weeks. As their limo drove around, both of them were admiring everything the outside world has to offer. Things like cars, other people and gas prices at $4.33. Remember, none of the remaining houseguests were able to see a single second of the London Games, so they don’t know who these girls are. But when the gymnasts arrived, Shane acted like he was meeting President Obama. So phony. He didn’t have a clue who these girls were. Nobody would have if they were secluded for months. Watching his fake reaction to initially meeting them was embarrassing.
When Shane and Danielle returned to the house from their first date outside, Dan went into action. He was hoping Shane wasn’t able to sway her much because he was still hoping she was holding true to their final-two alliance.
At the Veto meeting, Shane obviously used the PoV to save himself. With that decision, Ian selected Danielle as a replacement nominee. In the Diary Room, Dan explained how excited he is to have escaped potential eviction once again.
Another Joins The Jury
Heading into the eviction, only two contestants were eligible to vote — Dan and Shane, both of whom have an alliance with Danielle. Ian, the current Head of Household, was only eligible to vote in the event of a tie. Would either of the two guys vote to evict Danielle, their ally and friend? Nope. When the votes were tallied, both of them voted to evict Jenn. As she walked out of the game for good, Jenn became the fifth member of the jury. Plus, she also ended her summer-long slop punishment as Julie gave her a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at the end of her exit interview.
The New HoH
After a memory-based trivia competition, Danielle won the power of HoH. Ian, who had no shot at winning as outgoing HoH, I believe stands as the player most in danger heading into the next eviction. It seems everybody wants him out of the game, and if he can’t win the PoV this week assuming he’s nominated, I expect the BB nerd to get the big ol’ boot next.
My favorite moment came when Julie asked a question about a previous challenge, which forced her to say “fajitas.” And wouldn’t you know it, she said it with a hard “J” sound and it came out sounding like this: fuh-gee-tuhs. Somebody better hit that reset button on Chenbot tonight. That was ridiculous.
Thursday night’s episode also delivers another live eviction, which will whittle the house down to the final three.
What did you think of tonight’s episode? Are you happy Jenn was evicted? Of the final four houseguests, who do you think deserves to win the $500,000 prize? Who do you think doesn’t deserve a penny of that prize money? Sound off and leave a comment below!
