Ian Terry is teaching reality television fans one major lesson: Don’t ever doubt the nerd. Ian, who wasn’t a major threat in challenges for the first half of Big Brother 14, the superfan science nerd has risen to the top as one of the most powerful players in the season. After saving himself from the second of two evictions during last Thursday’s episode, Ian found himself back in power as the game continues winding down. Is he the little spastic nail-biting nerd that could?
For the second time this season, the Big Brother 14 house had a special fast-forward episode as the contestants faced a double live eviction. Heading into the first live elimination of the night, a pre-taped segment showed Frank starting to get a tad nervous that Dan was going to turn back on his word. He was fearful that their final-two alliance was worth nothing and the house might choose to oust him instead of Joe who was nominated as a replacement when Dan used the Power of Veto to save Jenn. Despite numerous promises from Dan, the deal was certainly off and he was out for blood against Frank. But was the fierce competitor with nine lives able to squirm his way to safety once again?
Dan Gheesling, the main mastermind of Big Brother 14, is definitely playing both sides of the house. He’s doing it extremely well. After making a final-two with Frank, his biggest enemy, he also found a way to cut a major alliance with Ian — also to go to the end of the game. After winning the Power of Veto in tonight’s episode, Dan found himself stuck in the middle of both alliances. Which way did he turn with Frank and Jenn on the chopping block? It’s no so unexpected.
Big Brother 14 fans watched recently as Ian took HoH, after his ally Britney Haynes was evicted from the house. After her eviction, Britney Haynes shared her thoughts about her time in the house, and while she did say she has “no regrets,” she also admitted that she made some very “poor decisions” during her time there.
Big Brother 14‘s much-needed momentum continued in tonight’s episode as Ian took power when he needed it the most. After Britney, his main ally, was evicted from the house, the reality television nerd was out for revenge. He was determined to win Head of Household — which he did after spinning in the endurance challenge for nearly two hours. His HoH victory was something he needed more than ever because Ian was definitely a target for several people. And with him in power, old alliances rekindled.
Thursday night’s episode of Big Brother 14 left us without a new Head of Household because the contestants were still battling it out for the power as the credits rolled. After just a few minutes into the competition, chef Joe and Jenn both fell out of the endurance competition in which everybody was holding onto an elevated rope that spun them in circles. But who ultimately won the contest? Final warning! If you don’t want to have the upcoming events of the show spoiled before they air on Sunday night, turn away now. Spoiler ahead!Read on to find out!
At the end of Sunday night’s episode, I was convinced that Dan Gheesling, the winner of season 10, would be sent packing at the end of tonight’s episode of Big Brother 14. But Dan pulled off one of the most miraculous plays in the show’s history and formed an alliance with Frank, his biggest enemy. Even Dan knew his move was stunning when he said to the viewers, “Getting that Veto necklace from Jenn was my finest hour in this house. I don’t know I can ever top it.” Suddenly, the most unlikely duo of Frank and Dan took Jenn on their side and tossed Britney on the chopping block against Danielle and set the stage for the biggest elimination of the season. But before one of the two ladies was evicted from the house, Dan’s plan stirred up several fights between Ian and Frank who went toe to toe in a venomous verbal battle.
Tonight’s episode of Big Brother 14 was the resurrection this season needed to help itself rise from the grave as the worst season ever. The entertainingly fun hour featured one of the biggest moves the game has ever seen in which season 10 winner Dan Gheesling masterfully won the house over by holding his own funeral. Trying to save himself from certain eviction, Dan gathered the house together and cried his way through the mock funeral as he offered them all positive comments about their game. While he was nice to all of them, he sent shockwaves through the house with the few words he sent Danielle’s way.
If you missed the first 15 minutes of tonight’s episode of Big Brother 14, it was basically a review of what happened during last Thursday’s excellent episode with a few new bits mixed in. After Boogie and Ashley were evicted at Ian’s hand, Frank was so intensely frustrated with the rest of the house. He erupted and yelled at almost everybody — even calling Ian a “terrible person.” As Ian escaped to the bathroom, he told Dan that his actions were going to send him straight to hell. I’d like to add that he’d be going to hell with freshly shaved armpits (hahaha). Meanwhile, as Frank’s rage roared, Britney asked him to stop yelling at Ian because he feels bad for his actions. Oh, Britney. I want you out of the house so badly I can’t stand it. It’s a game. Frank has every right to be upset. After calming down for a bit, he moved from player to player to start a new strategic plan knowing that he was otherwise a man alone in the game.
Thank goodness! This seemingly endless season of Big Brother 14 knocked two of the 10 remaining players out of the game with a special double eviction night, which was the most intense episode of the summer! It all started with Boogie still asking questions about why he was targeted this week. He began by blasting Shane with questions before he said “You’re just looking like Dan’s bitch right now.” His focus quickly turned to Dan because he’s the guy Boogie believed sold him out in the first place. As Dan tried to quietly read on the couch, Boogie antagonized him. Dan didn’t offer much of a response as Ian, the true turncoat, sat there and watched in silence. But there was a new storm brewing in Jenn, the replacement nominee. She was pissed that she was the person being played as a pawn.
