Veto Used – Frank & Janelle Up

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.

Danielle Won Veto

Winning her second competition in a row, Danielle is showing her strength as a competitor in this new ‘reset’ game of Big Brother. Now not under the protection of any coach, all newbies were able to be nominated, along with all the former coaches. As Head of Household, she nominated Wil and Frank for eviction, giving them the chance to take themselves off the block. Alas, that will not come to pass, as Danielle now holds all of the power in her hands.

The competition seems to have been a baseball based pick and switch game; with both bad and good prizes. The players competing for them were Danielle, Frank, Wil, Ian, Jenn and Shane. Obviously, Danielle took the POV, but she got it by switching it for BB’s new creation, the Spiritard… taking the Veto from Frank. Now, Frank will have to spend the week on the block and in a ridiculous costume bodysuit, most likely taking a walk out the door and meeting Julie, too.

Ian took yet another punishment, and now has to live in a kennel for 24 hours, eat out of a dog bowl and be lead around on a leash if he wants to go anywhere in the house. To make it clear, it is his strategy, and he gave a vacation to Jenn so he could take it. Really. Shane came out with a Veto ticket, ensuring that he will play next week and Wil got five thousand dollars.

Now is the time for scrambling and deal making, yet the chances that Danielle will use the Veto are very slim. It’ll sure be fun to watch, though.

The Big Red Reset Button

Strategy and planning are important parts of Big Brother. Players that have been considered fan favorites are known for their mastery of the rules of the game, and their ability to strategize and plan the demise of their enemies in the house. In that light, the game reset that occurred this week becomes all the more important when you realize that any previous Houseguest strategy now has to go out the window.

While the now-former coaches have known that this reset was a possibility for at least 2 to 3 weeks, many of the new players had no idea – or at least, didn’t think for sure it was going to happen. Because of this, any plans that they may have had have to be scrapped in favor of new alliances, new alignments and a new approach to the game – one that must include playing against former masters of the game.

Shane Off, Danielle Up

In the late morning Veto Ceremony today, Shane took himself off of the block and Frank named Danielle as the replacement nominee. Now, with JoJo and Danielle sitting in the nomination chairs, the house has to decide who to send out the door. Jo Jo, the spunky Staten Islander who talks big game and well… talks. Or Danielle, the Southern Belle, who in Real Life is a Nurse at 23. However when she says it, it sounds an awful lot like ‘Kindergarten Teacher’.

There are many reasons to keep and evict both, but it seems that the house is still reeling from Willie’s Hantzheadedness, so the target still firmly remains on his former ally JoJo. She was target #2 on the BB Hit List after the chips fell over Willie’s explosion.  Added to that is the fact that JoJo is viewed as more dangerous player in the game physically and has more of a chance in the HOH endurcance competitions.
