Doomsday Wednesday is the fancy title CBS gave the most predictable hour of Big Brother all summer. This episode's only surprise came when Corn Flakes trumped Fruit Loops as the official cereal of Big Brother 14.
Last week's double eviction took out Frank Eudy and Joe Arvon.
Dan Gheesling recovers from his risky nominations. Ian Terry is honored to have been "Memphised" by Dan. Ian doesn't know he was Dan's target. Danielle Murphree sulks for awhile, because that's what she does, but she goes right back to being Dan's number one girl.
Ian wins the next HoH. Jenn Arroyo talks to Ian right away. Ian tells Jenn he realizes there are "people here who have nominated me." Not I, says the one hasn't won a single HoH competition. Ian tells Dan he might have to use Dan as a pawn to "keep up appearances." Dan will never agree to this "crazy plan." Ever. In a million years. Dan stays silent, at first, and then tells Ian it's Renegades or nothing. Enough said. Ian nominates Jenn and Shane Meaney.
Julie Chen surprises the houseguests with an elimination and a Head of Household competition on a Tuesday. (Crazy, I know!) But first… the Power of Veto.

Power of Veto and Eviction
Time Flies – a puzzle on one platform and a 20-second timer on another platform. The houseguests have to fly from one platform to the other, alternating between assembling a puzzle and resetting the timer. If the time runs out, the puzzle falls apart. This week, the winner of the PoV also wins a luxury prize.
Shane and Jenn are in good shape. Ian is so bad, he eventually gets eliminated. Dan is not going to catch up to either Shane or Jenn. Danielle whines because the puzzle isn't on the ground. Her plan is to cheat off Shane. Ian helps Shane. Dan says, "Ian, put your glasses away and stop helping Shane!" Much to Dan's dismay, Shane wins the PoV.
Shane removes himself from the block, of course. Ian nominates Danielle. Either Danielle or Jenn (hmmm, I wonder) will be the next houseguest evicted from the Big Brother house. Dan says, "I've escaped yet again and everything is going to plan. I can see the half million dollars in sight. I'm wiling to stab anyone and do anything to make sure I win this thing again."
Shane and Danielle (Shane's choice) go to the Kellogg's Tour of Gymnastics, where they're greeted by the Fierce Five and Corn Flakes.
The highlights: Shane compares winning Big Brother to winning an Olympic gold medal, because, dude, a lot of people also try out for Big Brother. Corn Flakes. Shane's hair. Tumbling. Shane and Danielle kiss. Corn Flakes. Danielle comes back to the Big Brother house madly, deeply in love with Shane, because, now, they're "real" outside of the house. More than ever, Danielle's torn between Shane and Dan. Corn Flakes.
Shane, Dan, and Danielle play for HoH. In Photographic Memory, the houseguests have to answer true or false questions about pictures of the game.
At the end of seven questions, Dan and Danielle are tie. The tie breaker question is how many seconds elapsed from the starting horn to the finishing bell in the Time Flies veto competition. Dan answers 626, Danielle answers 155. The correct answer is 584 seconds. Danielle wins HoH.
At final four, the Head of Household secures a place in the final three, but the Power of Veto is the more important win. The PoV winner is the only houseguest who votes. Unless, of course, the HoH also wins the PoV. If that happens, there will be only one person not nominated and he/she casts the lone vote.
FAVORITE BB14 HOUSEGUEST… WHO GETS YOUR VOTE?
