Frank Won Veto

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.

Shane Used Veto – Frank & Joe Up

So sure of his players’ security, Boogie made a rookie mistake last night – going to bed early. Even after a conversation where Britney said that in her opinion the winners in Big Brother are the ones who stay up the latest, since they get time to plot, he was still in bed at 10 o’clock; leaving the HOH door clear for Team Janelle to wheel and deal their way out of a certain eviction.

And what a job Team Janelle did, working overtime until the wee hours of the morning convincing Shane and Britney that the best option was to backdoor Frank. Unsure of how the votes would play out, Britney was reluctant to commit to anything without making sure that they would have the votes evict him.

Shane Won Veto, Again

When we last left the intrepid houseguests, former nominee/veto winner Shane, had won the ‘On Thin Ice’ HOH Competition. Faced with nominating two people in the house, he had to wait until the Coaches Competition was over to know who he wasn’t able to target for the week. Janelle again won the ability to save one of her players and chose likely target, Wil, to be safe; a smart move, since he was a certainty to be on the block.

With the number one target on Janelle’s team unable to be nominated, Shane debated whether to split the nominations between Boogie’s and Janelle’s team, or to draw a line in the sand and nominate two people from the same team. When the feeds cut for nominations he was still undecided and after, admitted that he spent a good five minutes  debating before he placed the last key in the slot. In the end, the two nominees were Joe and Ashley, the only two players who could be nominated from Janelle’s team.

Order From Chaos.

After two weeks of complete disarray, Thursday’s Big Brother live show served as a return to the normal order of things. The previous HoH (Willie) was removed from power, and in a standard trope of reality show it looks like he will get his comeuppance under the reign of the new HoH. To say that Willie’s reign was a disaster is only half-right. When one looks at the overall picture, it is at best a mixed bag. Willie’s original target was removed, his nominations were kept the same and he survived the week without getting thrown out of the house.

On the flip side? Well, the entire way that he went about things could be best described as a clusterfrack. Willie bullied and bashed his way through his HoH reign as few had before him- the closest comparison to this power trip would be BB11’s Ronnie. Willie blew up alliances, nominated people he was allied with, destroyed a Coach’s alliance between Britney and Janelle and essentially made it easy for a power change to go from the Blonde Ambition Alliance to Chilltown 3.0.
