Big Brother 14 Episode 11 Recap: Wait, Who Is In Power?


Sunday night’s Big Brother 14 presented us with a kind of surprising new Head of Household, a reset game, and of course two new (OK, one new and one not-so-new) nominees.

The episode starts right after Julie announced the coaches were entering the game and that no one was going home Thursday night. We get Janelle and Britney lying about pushing the button to reset the game and then we’ve got Dan making a non-Dan move and telling Boogie that Frank was about to be blindsided had the game not reset.

Boogie doesn’t have much time to digest that because the 12 contestants now on equal ground were being rushed to start the HOH competition.

During the competition, a lot of dedicated players surfaced out of no where. For the first time in several seasons, an endurance competition really turned into an endurance competition. No one went all night Season 6 style or anything, but they lasted longer than people have in resent seasons.

Here’s the order our and time for each contestant:

  • Boogie: 1:10
  • Jenn: 1:10
  • Joe: 1:13
  • Ashley: 1:51
  • Dan: 1:55
  • Frank: 2:13
  • Shane: 2:43
  • Wil: 2:43
  • Janelle: 2:49
  • Ian: 3:15
  • Britney: 3:15
  • Danielle wins.

I initially couldn’t believe Danielle won HOH when I watched it play out on the Live Feeds Thursday night. I had apparently missed the catalyst though and CBS included that in Sunday night’s show. Shane told her if she won, he’d kiss her again. And that’s all it took. It all makes perfect sense now. She won the HOH because of her psychotic obsession crush on Shane and really wanted that second kiss. And she got it. Even though Shane told Julie last week he wasn’t interested in Danielle. Guess he’s just playing the game. Good for him.

While the HOH was still playing out, Boogie and Frank go inside so Boogie can share Dan’s remarks with Frank. They both continue to be shocked that Frank was about to be blindsided with an eviction so they’re not very happy with Danielle and Wil at this point.

Dan realizes he made a mistake telling Boogie about the plan to blindside Frank so he does what he can to make it good. Everyone else involved is playing dumb with Boogie, but he’s not buying it. He definitely isn’t happy right now and would, at this point, much rather still be a coach and not a player.

Danielle can’t think for herself, so she gets her group in the HOH room to talk about who to nominate. Boogie, Frank and Janelle are tossed around a bit. But Dan puts an end to Janelle and Boogie talk because it’s in his own best interest to not allow a former coach be nominated or evicted. So for some reason Frank and Wil’s names come up and that seems to be the plan. Even though Danielle promised Wil she would not put him up if he bowed out of the HOH competition ahead of her.

It’s time for the nominations and everyone has their keys pulled except for Frank and Wil. Frank isn’t so surprised, but Wil is because Danielle didn’t stick to her word.

Up next is the veto competition and then the nomination ceremony. And if you can’t wait until Wednesday to find that out, keep an eye on our Big Brother 14 spoilers.
