Big Brother 15 premieres Wednesday, June 26 at 8/7c on CBS.
Following the premiere on Wednesday, Big Brother will air three nights weekly – Sundays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. The live eviction show hosted by the lovely Julie Chen happens on Wednesdays this season. Also new, Big Brother: After Dark will air on TV Guide Network (TVGN), not Showtime.
Are you all ready for the longest season ever of Big Brother? Big Brother 15 premieres in a little less than one week. This season's houseguests will endure two new weekly twists designed to shake up the game from day one.
First, three Big Brother houseguests will be nominated for eviction instead of two. More hamsters on the block most likely means more paranoia and drama surrounding nominations. So far – I like it.
Second, Big Brother fans will be asked to vote for the houseguest who they feel is playing the best game, and the winner of that vote will be declared the Big Brother MVP. The MVP will get a special power that impacts the game.
“The Big Brother MVP will force the houseguests to rethink their strategies," said Executive Producer Allison Grodner. "With America rewarding good game play, it doesn't pay to be a floater this summer."
The season started with a bang, got a little boring in the middle, and then Dan revived it with some brilliant moves. After 75 days in the Big Brother house, only Dan, Ian Terry, and Danielle Murphree remain.
Who will win Big Brother 14 – Master of the Mist, Awkward Super Fan, or Crazy Teacher Nurse?
After Jenn [Arroyo] City became Jenn Jury (haha, Big Brother, good one), Danielle Murphree, Ian Terry, Dan Gheesling, and Shane Meaney made up Big Brother 14's final four.
Dan points out that the Quack Pack is the final four. He says, "We gotta start eating our own ducks." Of course, Dan has eliminated one duck already, when he sacrificed Britney Haynes to keep himself safe. Tonight, Dan takes out duck number two.
Danielle wins Head of Household. The live feeds were down for almost two days, so there were some key points missing from yesterday's nomination and Power of Veto spoilers. Tonight's episode shows us, once again, just how good at this game Dan is.
Following the HoH competition, Danielle gloats, "I am HoH. I'm guaranteed final three. I just beat all the boys.. again. I am besides myself." Ian understands the importance of winning the final four Power of Veto. Dan is bummed he lost HoH. But, he has final three deals with everyone, so he's not too worried.
Danielle is upset because she has to choose between Shane and Dan. Dan tells Danielle to nominate him and Ian, so that's what she does. A sad Ian says, "It's win [PoV] or go home." An extremely confident Dan says, "Heading into this veto competition, it would be great to win, but I don't have to. I still have a lot of magic left in me. I've already pulled a lot of rabbits out of hats this summer. I'm not done yet."
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.
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.
Immediately following Janelle‘s eviction, the houseguests all but handed the Head of Household to Frank. Frank, the ox-like creature teamed up with Boogie, who has escaped eviction three times in four weeks… makes perfect sense. But, it’s okay, right? The Silent Six should be safe. They promised!
Britney immediately came down with a case of “OH S**T!” In the end, Frank stayed true to the alliance thanks to Boogie‘s insistence, and nominated Wil Heuserand Joe Arvin. Frank really wanted to nominate Dan. Boogie said no. Frank won the Power of Veto and really wanted to back door Dan. Boogie said no. Boogie is such a buzz kill.
The Big Brother week started with Joe as the target and Wil as the pawn. Then, Wil proved just how much he sucks at playing Big Brother. Wil’s flippant attitude left Boogie and Frank feeling uneasy. Who is evicted – Wil or Joe?
Eliminating smelly Frank from the Big Brother house is proving to be impossible!
Week 1: Frank stays and Kara goes. Because Kara was too much of a threat – of taking off her clothes? Honestly, I don’t get the reasoning. Week 2: Frank is Head of Household. Frank’s biggest threat, Willie Hantz, is expelled and JoJois evicted. Two evictions for the price of one HoH. Week 3: Shane makes a bold move and nominates Frank at Veto. Generally, this guarantees the target is a goner.
Shocker: Big Brother declares a reset. Not only is Frank not going home, neither is the suitable consolation prize, dirty and loud-mouth Joe. And, we’re not done yet, folks! Boogie, Frank’s ally, is now eligible to compete – whether the sour puss likes it or not.
Danielle wins HoH. Froogie spend days whining and complaining about how unfair Big Brother is. Danielle nominates Frank and Wil. Mike Boogie Malin, Janelle Pierzina, Dan Gheesling, and Britney Haynesare in the HoH room together. Boogie says “I don’t trust you” to Janelle, Dan is convinced Janelle is a bigger threat than Froogie, and the Silent Six is born. At the Power of Veto ceremony, Danielle blindsides Janelle, nominating her for eviction. Poor Jani didn’t even put on makeup for the event. Horrors!
Who wins this round – Boogie or Janelle? Who is the new HoH?
Shane is everything in the Big Brother house this week – HoH, PoV, and RSM (resident stud muffin). Shane had a secret alliance with Frank, so he targeted Janelle Pierzina‘s team for eviction. Janelle‘s sexual prowess gave her an edge in the (disturbing) coaches challenge. Janelle’s win saved Wil from the chopping block. With Wil off the table, Shane nominated Joe and Ashley for eviction. Whoa, shocker! Everyone expected one person from Team Janelle and one person from Mike Boogie Malin‘s team. The hamsters quickly scurried away from the nomination ceremony to discuss, celebrate, scheme, and/or plan their next move. Except for Danielle. She’s a challenged skinny hamster. She simply found her way to the RSM’s bed and refused to leave. I say “skinny,” because if I don’t say anything, she’ll assume I’m calling her a fat hamster. And I can’t deal with her brand of crazy today.
Janelle worked her magic and Ian worked his social awkwardness, leaving Shane feeling uneasy about Frank. Britney Haynes‘s, like, on a constant 2-day delay in the Big Brother house, but she eventually caught up to Shane’s thinking. At the PoV ceremony, Shane made a bold (stupid? it’s up for interpretation) move. Shane denominated Ashley and named Frank as the replacement nominee. Frank knew it was coming, but Boogie and Ian, who was blamed for the shake up, were blindsided. Shane told Frank that he wasn’t the target, the move was simply a numbers game to ensure Joe‘s eviction. Frank remains optimistic; however, the hamsters are counting down the hours until they can evict him.
Who is evicted – Frank or Joe? Will the coaches enter the game? (as if we really had a choice)
