Big Brother 14 Episode 24 Recap: Dan Continues To Play Hard| September 5, 2012 at 9:50 PM EDT
On Wednesday night’s Big Brother 14, there might have been a power of veto game played and a replacement nominee named, but what stood out was Dan’s continuing saga of great game play.
Dan officially has three (or maybe more by now) Final 2 deals and is practically in an alliance with everyone in the house. He has everyone smoked and unless the jury house gets together and figures out Dan played them all, he might be the first person to win $1 million from Big Brother.
The episode picked up right after Ian’s nominations of Frank and Jenn. Frank notes his alliance with Jenn, Danielle and Dan and thinks he’ll be safe at the week’s end regardless. Jenn is fired up and talking big. She thinks because she won a veto by default and made a terrible move by using the veto, that she’s now on Dr. Will’s level of Big Brother game play.
Joe reads between the lines and knows if Frank or Jenn come off the block, he’ll go up. So he goes to Ian to check things out. Ian puts Joe at ease by saying he may end up on the block, but he won’t be the one going home.
Frank and Dan have a Final Two meeting and they’re talking about the veto. Frank says it would be best for Dan to win so he could pull Jenn down. That way Joe can go up and they can vote Joe out. Dan plays along but then heads to the Diary Room to let us know that he does not plan on upholding his Final Two deal with Frank and that his goal is to get him out this week.
Dan’s the only one playing dirty between the two of them, however. Frank is actually afraid that if the veto is used on him then Dan might go up. That’s why he’s hoping Jenn comes off and Joe goes up. Oh Frank. I don’t even know what to make of the situation you’ve gotten yourself in now.
The veto players were chosen and Shane is the only one not playing. At the competition, we find out Otev (Veto spelled backwards) has returned and this time he’s back in the form of an alien who has crashed landed in the Big Brother backyard. He needs ears of corn for fuel to return to the planet Veto but not just any ears of corn. They have to be ears of corn with particular names written on them. And the only way to figure those names out is by solving a riddle Otev spouts off.
Danielle is out of the competition first, followed by Ian. (Take not that Joe or Jenn were not the first OR the second out in this game! Congrats!!!). Joe is out next, however, and then Jenn. So it’s between Frank and Dan. Frank has finally gotten nervous about trusting Dan so he decides to play the veto to win. But he doesn’t succeed. Dan wins.
Frank still feels pretty safe though, because he trusts their plan to pull Jenn of and put Joe up will work.
Ian and Dan get together to talk about veto options and tosses out the whole Renegades reference again. He goes in for the kill with the Final Two deal with Ian. He accepts.
At the nomination ceremony, Dan does take Jenn off the block and Ian, pretending to be irritated, puts Joe up as the replacement. Ian and Dan’s plan is playing out all while Frank thinks his and Dan’s plan is playing out.
Who do you think will be going home Thursday night, Frank or Joe?
