Big Brother 14 Episode 9: Did Shane Use The Veto?| August 1, 2012 at 9:22 PM EDT
If you’re one of those people who don’t watch the Big Brother 14 Live Feeds or keep up with Showtime’s After Dark, then you were probably in for a surprise during Wednesday night’s episode of Big Brother.
Shane made the first pretty bold move in several seasons of Big Brother (at least this early in the game). But before we get to that, let’s back up and start from the beginning.
The show picked up right after Shane’s nominations that were revealed Sunday. Ashley and Joe just learned they were put on the block and instead of them rushing off to find out why and work themselves, off, Janelle jumped on it. That’s what’s different about this season so far. The coaches have basically done all the work. So those who say the coaches should not enter the game at the end of this week, should think about that. They’re the only ones really playing so far, so why not?
Janelle first chats with Britney and plays the Janelle game by saying she’s not mad and that she understands why Shane made the move. Janelle does her part then heads down to coach Ashley, Joe and Wil on how to get on Shane and Britney’s good side.
But before any deals can really be made, the Power of Veto has to be played. Chosen to join Shane, Joe and Ashley in the Veto competition were Danielle, Wil and Frank. Everyone freaks out because Frank was chosen as if Frank is some sort of threat. He’s won ONE competition and it was a memory quiz. I’m not sure why everyone thinks Frank is such a threat.
At the Veto Game, or the Big Brother Circus, the players are dressed as clowns and have to keep two balls from touching the ground. Wil is first out followed by Joe. Frank is out next followed by Danielle, who by the way is not having a showmance with Shane despite what CBS wants you to think.. So it’s between Ashley and Shane. Ashley’s ball hits the ground, so Shane wins. Again. That’s three vetoes in a row.
Shane and Britney run off to the HOH room hoping to get some peace before the begging starts. Britney gets in a HILARIOUS imitation of Joe before Janelle comes in making her pitch. Then, one by one, her team enters the room and Britney’s eyes risk permanently rolling into the back of her head.
Janelle tells Britney and Shane she doesn’t just want a one-week deal, she wants them to work together from now on. She wants them to take out Boogie’s players, staring with Shane. Janelle has a lot to lose so she’s desperate, but Britney and Shane are kind of falling for it.
Then Joe makes his pitch. He all but begs for Shane to stay. Shane’s considering using the veto, but it has nothing to do with anything Joe said. It’s actually Ian that gets the ball rolling. Or should I say Britney. She has a little talk with Ian where she asks if he’d put Shane up. He couldn’t give her a straight answer so she gets suspicious of him and his team, which of course includes Frank.
Britney tells Shane and suddenly Janelle’s idea of putting up Frank in place of one of her players starts sounding better.
Shane has a talk with Frank and hints at putting him or one of his teammates up. He says it’s so they can control the votes to get Joe out. With Joe up against his teammate Ashley, there’s no guarantee Joe will be the one to go. So Frank kind of buys that, but suggests Shane put Ian up instead of himself.
At the Veto Ceremony, Shane announces that is indeed going to use the Veto. He takes Ashley off and puts up Frank in her place. Frank is surprised but Boogie is shocked. Janelle, of course, is thrilled. Shane still wants Frank to think he’s not the target when he actually is. And Frank, though nervous, believes him. It’s going to be a real blind side Thursday night when Frank is voted out. IF that’s what happens.
Do you think Frank will be going home? Who would you rather go home?
