Big Brother 14 Episode 25 Recap: A Nail-Biting Double Eviction

Big Brother 14 - Frank and Joe nominated

Aaaaaaah do we love double eviction episodes or what? I know I do. I’m finally coming down off the high from this week’s Thursday night live installment of Big Brother 14.

During that hour, we saw one eviction go as planned, a new HoH crowned, two new nominees, a veto winner and yet another nominee. And it was all topped of with a second eviction. And there wasn’t much time to breathe in between any of this.

At the beginning of the episode, we get a lot of Dan’s backstabbing Frank and Frank remaining completely oblivious. Dan played hard the past week and Frank is the one going to pay for it. It becomes very obvious that Frank will be the first houseguest going home, so Big Brother throws in some Joe mess-ups to attempt some suspense.

Joe keeps saying the wrong things and even starts to talk smack about Dan TO Dan, thinking he’s Shane. Ian even says if anyone could mess up the plan to get Frank out, it’s Joe. But we’re not falling for any of this are we? Nah. Let’s get to the first vote.

Julie asks Frank and Joe to make their final pleas. Frank gives a good speech and you can see it in his eyes and hear it in his voice that playing Big Brother has been so important to him. I’d almost feel sorry for him had I not seen him seem so entitled for the past several weeks.

Joe’s speech is like all of his others: kind of loud, and very confusing. I never know what he’s trying to say or why he’s saying what ever he’s saying that way.

Here’s how the votes played out:

  • Dan: evict Frank
  • Danielle: evict Frank
  • Jenn: evict Joe
  • Shane: evict Frank

Frank is evicted and he shuns everyone but Jenn. During his conversation with Julie, he’s clearly shaken and knows that his biggest mistake in the game was not sending Dan out last week when he should have. Julie seemed equally upset, which leads me to presume she is a Frank fan. See you on All-Stars 2, Frank.

It’s time for the HoH contest. It’s a who said what quiz and Shane and Joe blow it. Jenn, Danielle and Dan are neck and neck the whole time and end up having to answer a tie-breaker question. They’re asked how many minutes Jodi spent in the Big Brother house. Dan wins with his guess of 363 minutes.

Dan has very little time to make his nominations decision so Joe helps save some time and already takes a seat in one of the chairs. Dan does nominate Joe and then asks Ian to sit next to Joe. We have no idea if Dan let Ian know that he was going to do that or not. People watching the Live Feeds do know that Dan’s plan was to send Ian out next though.

At the veto competition called “Swimming With Sharks,” the HGs had to guide a shark fin through a vigorous maze and then be the first to hit their button. Ian finishes without anyone even on his tail. He wins the veto.

Ian takes himself off the block and Dan scrambles to make a replacement nomination. Trying to keep Jenn from getting too angry, he aimed for Shane but then asked Danielle to sit next to Joe. And the universe smiled.

With only three votes, it’s unanimous and Joe is the next HG evicted.

So your Big Brother 14 Top 5 are Ian, Dan, Danielle, Jenn and Shane. One of them is the new HoH and we’ve got those results already posted for you if you don’t want to wait until Sunday to find out.
