Turning Tides

It can often be said in the Big Brother House that the success and failure of any player’s game shifts each week much like the tide rolls in and out. Going from the zenith of power to the nadir of helplessness isn’t just a possibility, it’s an expected and somewhat regular occurrence. The years are littered with the corpses of gameplay that took “tragic falls” from one week to another, and many a player has felt the sting of Julie’s Boudoir a mere 7 days after being in “total control” of the house.

Rarely, however, has an alliance felt such a stinging rebuke as Britney’s team did in the past 7 days. From having three strong players and an alliance with a power trio to having one player remaining, Britney’s tenure as coach can only be described as having one major success so far. But what a success it is, folks.

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.

Willie Out & Shane Won Veto

Yesterday was quite an eventful day inside the Big Brother house, if not on the feeds. Trivia started in the afternoon while the Coaches Competition took place. A balancing, collecting and stacking challenge that in the end was won by Janelle, who decided to skip trading any of her players and saved Ashley from the threat of nomination.

She also won the right to choose the Have-Nots for the week, unsurprisingly targeting Team Britney making Willie, JoJo and Shane (for the second straight week) Have-Nots. One more was needed and Ian, being the ultimate good sport (crazy), volunteered to spend another week in the vortex. The good thing about being a Have-Not this week is the Americas Vote food began and now they can eat pork rinds and pudding to their hearts content.

Willie, however, didn’t take going from the HOH to the Have-Not Room very well at all. In fact, in the few minutes of feeds we saw after the Coaches Competition, he stormed around pissed off, threatened violence, and started to have a complete Big Brother meltdown. After a bit of that, he raged through the living room indiscriminately cursing the players he despised, dropping F and C bombs like they were ‘please’ and ‘thank you’. Predictably, the feeds were cut off and almost four hours of trivia began.
