    See now I feel stupid- I didn't even catch it when I was typing it...since I knew what she meant. (He's been a have not for two weeks, hasn't he?, what do they expect?)

    I did get that she used introverted entirely wrong.

    Well the website is down, so they are rigging it already :)


    If they do join, I hope they have to be have nots all summer. Otherwise the competition will just be handed to them, just like last summer.

    Looks like Boogie's plan to cozy up to Shane was a good one - Janelle may pay for this now.

    Loved Dr Will's segment!

    Meh on America's Vote - note that the wording was rather vague, saying the coaches might have the opportunity to enter the game. I guess the producers haven't decided yet.

    I think they probably didn't like JoJo saying over and over that it's an unfair game (even though she said she knew that and was OK with it) - Julie seemed uncomfortable with her.

    Not really- Brit and Shane were discussing putting up Frank and I guess joe or wil- to pit Janelle and Boogie against one another. There's so much that is happening more than what is shown on the show- it really helps to follow jokersupdates and/or BBAD to see what is really happening.

    How was the wording vague? The coaches are definitely coming into the game. People will vote for that of course, but even if they didn't, they would make it look like we did.

    I think that was the least of Jojo's problems. It was her general attitude- the fact that she didn't ask about anyone's personal life until she was on the block, and she just talked about herself all the time, and how she kept saying that she DESERVED it. Most everyone couldn't stand her, including her own coach. Shane seemed pretty annoyed at having to vote for her to stay last night. She just had an absolutely terrible social game from day 1. I feel bad for Shane being saddled with the 2 biggest idiots in the house on his team- he must be a bit relieved to have them gone- so he can make friends with nicer people like Danielle.

    I do follow the feed updates on several sites. What Shane says around Brit may not matter, as he has been saying that he's playing for himself for some time, and now that he doesn't have a team, there's no need to stay loyal to Brit. Even if she comes in the game, she has no one on her side, so continuing to align himself with her would be a mistake. He already felt burned being loyal to Willie.

    I think he might be planning to work with Boogie and Frank, and if they make a deal and Shane doesn't put any of that team on the block, they have the three votes to get rid of someone on Janelle's team, or Danielle, who has been buddying up to Janelle as well.


    It says "should the coaches be offered the chance to enter the game?" So even if America were to vote a resounding yes, the producers could still make the offer or conditions such that they turn it down, or some turn it down and others don't. They also didn't put any timeline on it other than to say the results would be revealed next Thursday - that could be before or after the vote, and before or after the HOH comp, all of which could make a difference in who is eligible to come back, when they come back, etc.


    That wasn't my point. I wasn't suggesting why JoJo was voted out - I was commenting that her remarks might have ired CBS because she called the game unfair. Losers often do so no biggie, but since she said she was fine with it, it was spoken like it was a fact, that Big Brother is an unfair game. I don't think that's the positioning CBS is after.

    Oh, sorry I misread that part about Jojo. I didn't even consider that but yes, her saying that the game was unfair was kind of odd, as was saying she deserved it more than Danielle. Nobody "deserves" to be a Big Brother contestant- you just kind of luck into it if they like your audition. And then there's no barometer for who deserves to stay in or win- granted those who win HoH and Veto comps earn their spot although plenty of those are luck too. So basically what Jojo was actually saying is that she deserves to keep being lucky, which is quite silly. A bunch of the houseguests thought her exit speech was very strange and really total nonsense, which is kind of what I made of it too. She was kind of a dud

    As far as Shane- he seems to be working closely with Danielle and Brit, and he was very open about the fact that he did not want to nominate Frank on the part of BBAD I just watched (although I think there was a convo between Shane and Brit later in the night about nominating Frank since Frank nommed him but it doesn't seem that was the way he was leaning from what I just saw). I think Shane trusts Brit, Danielle, and Dan more than the rest of those in the house. So the plan seems to be nominating Ian and Wil right now - sorry bout my earlier post pointing to Frank. Sounds like Shane is keeping the path open to working with Boogie and Frank- and his main target is Wil this week...so maybe when the coaches come in- then Dan, Shane, Boogie, Brit, Danielle and Frank can all work together? We'll see.

    So Shane nominated Joe and Ashley - two people from Janelle's team (she won coaches comp and protected her third player Wil). If noms stay the same, Boogie's team has three votes and controls the result.

    Joe and Ashley haven't shown much comp ability so far that I can recall, but if one of them wins, we'll know everything based on whether Shane nominates one of Boogie's team (who would likely get voted off by the remaining two of Janelle's team plus Danielle), and Danielle, which will send her into fits, not realizing that she'd be the one to stay because apparently everyone thinks she's an ideal F2.

    I guess Janelle sealed her team's fate when she put Shane on slop during week 2 as he was pissed about that. I can see the noms staying the same as Joe and Ashley haven't shown any capability in the comps yet but it could be different when their backs are against the wall.

    I watched a little from BBAD the last 2 nights.
    Discussion on hemarrhoids, sounds like both Frank and Ian have or had them. Britney asking questions about whether the shape of the their poop is changed by the hemarrhoid.
    Last night - Brit mentioning several times how there was a deal w Janelle's team, they bailed, celebrated when Frank won HOH, so don't trust them.
    Wil is fired up about the noms, and Danielle is pouting. Joe seems annoyed, but working on calming down. Ashley seems ok.
    From the little I saw, if Joe or Ashley get taken down, would not be suprised to see Frank or another Boogie team member backdoored. But also think they don't mind getting rid of Joe.
    Have to go watch the Olys

    POV participants are Shane, Ashley, Joe, Wil, Frank and Danielle.

    Unless its something not very athletic, Frank or Shane should win since they have won everything else.

    Shane won POV, again.

    Unless he has a complete change of heart in the next 24 hours, the noms should stay the same and either Joe or Ashley are going home.

    If someone doesn't try to get Shane out next week then they are dumb. It will probably take multiple attempts to get him out so you need to start soon. I know some people wont do that because they feel safe with him but I would NOT want to find myself in the final 3 trying to win against him.

    Last night was one of the best nights of the season on BB...(actually best night in a few seasons). Big Brother gave them alcohol, they got wild and I couldn't stop laughing. Drunk Wil is funny...it was his birthday. He streaked in his birthday suit and jumped into the pool.

    They played spin the bottle and things got even crazier. If anyone has flashback on SuperPass, I recommend watching it.

    Poor Danielle though. Throwing herself at Shane and he just doesn't respond.

    Wil streaking lol: http://www.ihatebigbrother.com/part...other-14-house/big-brother-14-party-night-12/

    I watched a couple of hours this morning on flashback and it was indeed the most fun on the feeds for this season. Loved Wi's birthday party and his streak!

    Poor Danielle, its pathetic watching her throw herself at Shane. And Brit and Janelle shouldn't be encouraging her as it just makes it even more cringe worthy.

    Shane decided to make a move and pulled Ashley off and put up Frank; This is after team Janelle got to him last night.

    Danielle is the swing vote and I can see her waffling 500 times over the next three days but I expect her to vote with Ashley and Wil and send Frank packing.

    Boogie and Frank are blaming Ian for Frank being put up.

    At least someone made a move! How is this Ian's fault? I would imagine Danielle will vote however Shane wants her to vote considering she continues throwing herself at him.

    Ian wouldn't commit to keeping Shane safe for a few weeks when Shane and Britney talked to him last night so during the POV ceremony, Shane said something like "this is all Ian's fault" instead of the truth which is he decided to remove a big threat from the game. All will be moot if Danielle flips but I can't see her doing so.

    Oh, well that is a really smart move though because Shane puts an even bigger target on Ian's back. Even to the point where perhaps his own team-mates would prefer to cut their losses? We shall see. It is wise to give yourself every possible advantage in this game and Shane just gave himself another possibility as things continue.

    I don't have the feeds and missed last night's show, but good heavens Danielle seems like an idiot. Mooning all over Shane, who if at all interested certainly doesn't want to showmance and make out on air, but is being forced to string her along because her vote is now so important (which is of course Shane's doing).

    Now I'm just reading on Joker's that Frank is now flirting with her for her vote, and she is all excited about it. :rolleyes:

    She already thought she was the most important vote before the veto (which she wasn't at all - Boogie's team owned it), and now that she actually is the swing vote, she's turned up the needy 10x.

    Dan was just trying to talk her down, discouraging her from going up to HOH, definitely don't try to sleep there, trying to keep her focused (pointing out rightly that Shane's power is now gone) - and then moments later Britney was telling her to go work it with Shane!!

    :wall:

    Maybe I'm missing something, but she seems so pathetic to me.

    I don't even like Shane and I feel sorry for the guy, his HOH was a waste of time and he really has a grade 1 stalker in Danielle.

    I did giggle when she blabbered on about having all the power with her vote and whooops, no vote!!

    HOH endurance contests are always interesting to follow. Can see this one going a long, long time.

    Did they let Shane compete for HoH again since his week was a complete waste of time? That isn't really fair, it was all Willie's fault.

    It came down to Ian, Danielle and Britney, the three smallest people. Ian got a promise from the girls that he would be safe from nomination and replacement nomination so he jumped. Britney then gave it to Danielle.

    Danielle is such a nutcase I can see her going after a bunch of different people. Should be a wild week.

    I was happy that Danielle never got to cast her swing vote, but unhappy this morning to find out she's HOH. Now she'll be able to turn up the needy and delusional x10. :rolleyes:

    I'm not a Shane fan, but I did think it was good to let him have a shot at HOH. It's not so much that his was wasted and he's owed one, it's more than he had to take the risks and make enemies, so now he deserves a chance to protect himself.

    Danielle's noms will be based on whoever gets to her right before she has to make them, and it will probably be what Dan wants. If there's a veto situation, the real fun might come in trying to figure out who the replacement will be, and then she might not listen to Dan, because by then the power will have gone to her head and she might do whatever someone convinces her is a Big Move, aka what they really want.

    I knew Boogie wouldn't hit that button. Knew Dan and Janelle would, and sure enough Britney hesitated as I thought she might. Since Boogie can no longer win $100K and I think realizes $500K is a long shot, plus he's already won once, I think he might be happy to be the first member of the jury and chill for the rest of the summer. Mind you, it might depend on his cash situation with his businesses, lawsuits, child support etc.

    I don't think she's that bad. She's with Shane and Brit and Dan. Ian will be safe- she said she plans to honor the deal she made with him during the comp. She was saying last night that she hates Janelle, but it sounds like the group will work with Jani and Wil now anyway. Kind of hard to say which of Boogie, Frank, and Joe she will put up. I assume she'll leave Jen and Ashley alone for now unless she decides they are the best person to put up against Frank or Boogie.

    Obviously I'm no fan of Danielle :lol:

    Reading summaries and discussions is always a bit of a Rashomon experience with BB - everyone is exposed to the same footage, but they see completely different things, usually depending on who they like and dislike.

    I'm reading Joker's now, and it seems to me that Dan and Brit are doing a really good job of protecting their fellow coaches - Brit apparently even said that Janelle is small potatoes compared to Frank and Wil, and Dan is saying that Frank is definitely the biggest threat.

    Yeah, the biggest threat to you Dan! I'm amazed that the HGs aren't at least considering the most obvious targets - the two guys who have already won this game, or the two women who have been variously blamed for causing everything - ie. the former coaches.

    Danielle's only other potential in discussion that I've heard is Joe, and Brit and Dan are feeding her a lot of mistrust of Ian, and how his loyalty needs to be tested.

    Everyone is busy with Olys, but just to update...

    Wil and Frank nominated, Danelle won veto. Thoughts are Frank will probably leave this week as of now but of course lots of the week left.

    I watched a lot of BBAD -Sat pm/Sun am.
    Danielle won POV. Frank is in a purple spiritard for a week. Ian is a dog for 24 hrs, has to sleep in doghouse outside, has a leash. someone always with him.

    boogie finally snapped out of his slump and made a suggestion to Britney, Danielle, Dan, and Shane, with Frank on his side.
    The 6 of them in an alliance. Danielle to take Frank off and put up Janelle and back door her. I have never liked Boogie but he made some good points about it being a strong alliance.
    Then Brit/Shane/Danielle/Dan were discussing what to do. They think Boogie's idea has merits, but not sure whether to trust him. boogie claims to be annoyed with Ian, since Ian took the dog outfit over a trip to Maui. boogie also thinks Jen is more of a floater. The 4 (Brit/Shane/Dan/Danielle) - decide to clue in Ian and he must not say a word to Boogie/Frank. Ian is there 5th if Boogie and Frank double cross.

    The 4 had a good conversation, playing out all sides.
    Interesting turn of events. If I did not know Boogie, I would think he was sincere. But this is Boogie.

    I heard Danielle was going to backdoor Janelle but has gone back to her original plans to not use veto and get out Frank. I guess we will know when they hold the ceremony.
