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.
Ian Terry, Britney's closest ally, won Head of Household. The Quack Pack (Dan, Danielle, Murphree, Ian, and Shane Meaney) promptly reunited and targeted Frank. Ian nominated Frank Eudy and Jenn Arroyo. Dan won Power of Veto and removed Jenn from the block. (Ugh! I'm totally going to be singing "Jenny from the Block" for the rest of the day. And so are you now. You're welcome.) Ian nominated Joe Arvin.
Who will be evicted – Frank or Joe? Also, it's a double elimination night!
Last week on Big Brother, Shane Meaney nominated Mike Boogie Malin and Frank Eudy for eviction. Frank won the Power of Veto, removed himself from the block, and Jenn Arroyo took his place. Immediately after Boogie, aka Frank's best buddy, was evicted, Julie Chen surprised the house guests (not really) with a double eviction. Ian Terry won HoH and nominated Frank and Ashley Iocco. Frank saved himself by winning his third PoV in a row. The house guests are going to have to set the house on fire to get Frank out of there. Ashley, aka Frank's only other ally, was evicted.
After losing both Boogie and Ashley in the same night, Frank won HoH. He nominated Dan Gheesling and Danielle Murphree. Frank was gunning for Dan so hard, he willingly accepted several punishments in the last PoV competition. However, Frank was disqualified for breaking a rule, and Jenn won the PoV. The PoV was not supposed to be used… In a shocking turn of events, Dan flipped the house. Dan made a final two deal with Frank, who had Jenn save Dan from eviction, and… deep breath… that's how Britney Haynes found herself nominated for eviction this week.
How does the house react to this turn of events? Who is evicted – Danielle or Britney?
Jenn‘s mad that someone finally realized she’s in the Big Brother house. “I’m on fire, being put on the block, especially as a replacement nominee,” she says. “Usually, I lean back – I like to chill. At this point, I’m going to be a force to be reckoned with.” Jenn complains her way through the house. Ian says, “This tattooed rocker is overreacting. She couldn’t be a bigger pawn right now against a legend of the game. She needs to chill out.”
Who is evicted – Mike Boogie or Jenn? What happens during the Fast Forward?
