From the live feeds this evening, transcribed by Angel:
Britney to Danielle
“Way to go Frank, you’re right you are the best player in big brother history. Let’s see you took a chum bath for 21 hours, you got put into an effing carrot suit, you dyed yourself green, and you bench yourself for two HOH’s just to use the veto anyway. You are a mastermind. Why haven’t I just been listening to you this whole time you’re a freakin genuis.”
“You’re a freaking genius!”
Silence, Dan comes back outside
Dan “Sorry, it’s only 9:24 though”
Britney “The night is young”
Dan “It is”
Britney “Allow me to repeat what I just said.”
Dan “Whatever it was was funny because you were both smiling”
Britney “Yes Frank, you are the best player to ever play this game, you dyed yourself green, you put yourself in a carrot suit for a week, you benched yourself for the next HOH competition, and…what was his other one?”

During the last 24 hours what may be the best game play in Big Brother History has gone down. At the center of it all? Dan, winner of Big Brother 10, author of How to Get On Reality TV, and Big Brother strategy mastermind. It all began with 24 hours in solitary confinement. Although he was subjected to strobe lights and really annoying party ‘music’ (CBS sure didn’t break the bank on that one), Dan had one thing that nobody in the BB house gets – time to think and time to plan.
Dan went in to Solitary confinement after the Veto Competition on Saturday afternoon, and a few hours in to the confinement he stopped talking to everybody, having already played it cool with Danielle, not talking to her since Veto. Of course, Danielle took that personally. Whining to Britney that Dan was mad at her, and wondering why. Britney, thinking that Danielle was reading too much into it and playing emotionally, assured Danielle that he wasn’t mad and was just sleeping, or couldn’t hear them. Dan came out of solitary confinement in the Have Not Room, he appeared pale and shaky. Having been subjected to constant strobe lights and music made it impossible for him to actually rest, and he looked exhausted. However, at the sink he stood and gave the camera a quick wink. There was nothing wrong with Dan.

After the epic Double Eviction episode on Thursday night that sent Boogie home and Ashley to Jury, Frank won yet another HOH competition and moved his stuff back upstairs. It’s been an extra fun HOH for him since he opened Pandora’s Box and was locked in while the rest of the house searched for quarters in balls so they could play the claw game in the Arcade Room. The Golden Ball was the goal and the winner, Ian, now has the new Golden Ball Veto.
In making his nominations the next day, Frank didn’t hesitate to nominate his main target Dan along with Danielle, Dan’s closest ally in the house.
Continue reading “Jenn Won Veto”
Frank used the Veto to take himself off the block today and an unsuspecting Jenn was nominated in his place. After days of having all of their allies, including Jenn and Ashley, campaign for Dan to be the replacement nominee, Frank and Boogie are not happy (the understatement of the season) with Shane.
After the Veto Ceremony they stomped around the house, threatening and raging at Shane, stating that he’s Dans bitch, and he has now made himself the number one target in the house by screwing them over. Of course, the fact that Shane didn’t do what they wanted him to do and made a game move for himself just makes them seethe all the more.

Today, in the afternoon Veto Competition Frank once again came out on top. On the Block for the fourth time, he finally secured his chance to vote in a live show; something he hasn’t been able to do since entering the game. Nominated by Shane alongside Boogie, his former coach and number one ally, Frank had to win today’s Stay or Fold Counting game to stay in the house.
Some controversy did unfold before the Veto commenced, after the picking of the players Frank admitted to Boogie he palmed the House Guests Choice chip so a strong player couldn’t be chosen to play against them. Boogie was so proud.

“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.”
– Mark Twain
In sports, the above quote is often used to describe what has commonly been referred to as a player’s heart. The most successful athletes have had the inner drive to compete, succeed and conquer. This week showed the antithesis of that, as it was more defined by the lack of fight in Houseguests. From Janelle’s lackluster exit to Wil’s lack of real campaigning before his eventual (but not unavoidable) ouster, we saw players essentially give up in the game.
For many fans, this is sacrilege. So few people have had the opportunity to play Big Brother that anyone who is seen as “not putting their heart into it” is seen as a wasted spot, a body filling a slot that could have been filled by a true competitor. Say what you may about Mike “Boogie” Malin, but he is fully invested in getting as far as he can in the game. On the opposite end was Wil, who appeared to have mentally checked out and was ready to leave before Jury.

Frank chose to not use the Veto today, keeping his nomination of Wil and Joe the same, no big surprise. Frank, holding all the power in his hands, toyed with the idea of turning on his newly minted ‘Silent Six’ alliance and taking out one more coach by taking Joe off the block and replacing him with Dan. After debating with himself (and a number of others) about a possible backdoor of Dan, Boogie once again talked him off the ledge.
All week Boogie has been trying to make Frank look long term and not act on his fear of Dan in the game. Boogie knows that keeping the Silent Six intact will cause much less drama, distrust and chaos in the house. Even though one reason Frank wanted to put up Dan was his relationship with Boogie, citing a conversation he overheard of ‘Two’s Company, Three’s a Crowd’ (he’s three), there’s no question that Boogie is still in control of Frank.

The ZingBot again paid a visit to the Big Brother House today in an evening Veto Competition. Surprising the housguests and assaulting them with insult after insult, he led them outside to lend a hand in adding to his ZZZZing Family – with the introduction of Baby Bot.
With Frank again sleeping upstairs and holding the HOH title, he nominated Joe and Wil for eviction. The rest of the Veto players were Ashley, Boogie and Jenn, who were drawn from the bag, along with Shane who automatically plays after winning the Veto Ticket last week. Ian acted as the host along with ZingBot, his dream position after actually playing in a ZingBot Puzzle Challenge.

Few players in this game have been as polarizing as Janelle Pierzina. After two seasons, viewers had come to either love or hate her- rarely were people inbetween. What was never in doubt before this summer was that she was one of the hardest players in the game. Janelle combined this with a game play that had strong social overtones thanks to friendships with Howie and Kaysar, and the result was a player who has been widely regarded as one of the best never to win the game.
When viewers watched Janelle this season on the feeds, it was clear something was different. Perhaps too much time had passed since her last season. Perhaps her changed perspective on life (following marriage and motherhood) had turned this once-monster player into less of a force to be reckoned with. Janelle’s investment in this season seemed weaker than in past seasons, and her game play was off all season.

Time to eat my words, folks; Danielle used the Veto.
The scrambling and deal making between the Veto win and the Ceremony was Big Brother at its best. Multiple alliances were formed and revealed, and the most relevant to this situation is now called the Silent Six.
After Dani won the Veto, Boogie turned his game on full blast. With Frank in peril, he knew that now was the time to form a majority alliance with the people who have been dominating competitions since day one. As Shane and Danielle are the only Veto and HOH winners to date, besides Frank himself, he set up shop in the HOH and proposed the following; a final six deal with Dan, Danielle, Britney and Shane. Thus, the Silent Six was born. They whisper huddled and everything.
