Big Brother 14 - Britney, Danielle, and Shane

Power shifts are always entertaining on Big Brother and this season has not disappointed as we’re now seeing our second week in a row of “outhouse to the penthouse.” Last week Frank was ready to take the opportunity to pursue revenge on his nominator, but that obviously fell apart. This week we might see some real payback.

After the live show ended the HGs were happy and bubbly, but that soon died down and strategy talk returned. Fear and paranoia spread throughout as no one is terribly sure what to expect with Shane in power. Boogie tells Ian that he expects their team to be safe this week and Team Janelle to land in the hot seat. Meanwhile, Jenn is worried Shane will set his sights on Frank. No one agrees on what to expect.

Joe is getting worked up and expects he’ll be nominated alongside Wil. This eventually leads to Joe planning to make Shane a big breakfast-in-bed meal for the next morning. He’s even coordinating timing with Britney. As concerned as Joe is, he might sneak by this week as there are bigger targets than Joe’s DR yelling, as annoying as that is.

Shane and Danielle shared several discussions through the night as they appear to be aligning in their last-team-member-left state. An early talk focuses mostly on Danielle’s emotional insecurity as she pokes and prods Shane for information on whether he had a showmance with JoJo. Clearly this is the most pressing issue at this point in the game. Reminder: Danielle didn’t come here to win $500K. She came to Big Brother 14 to find a husband. Thankfully they turn to real game talk later.

Flashback to 1:00AM BBT on Cams 1/2 to hear Danielle pushing for Frank’s nomination. Earlier she decided with Dan that this would be the best angle to play this week. Shane was previously resistant to the idea because he doesn’t want to betray his word to Frank. Persistence is key however as Danielle manages to convince Shane that he needs to eliminate Frank if he wants to improve his chances to win. Wow, I’m impressed with Danielle for the first time this season. Maybe she did come to play.

Danielle instructs Shane to tell Frank he nominated him up front so he could play for the Veto rather than backdoor him. If Frank wins Veto then Ian goes up in his place to sit next to Wil on the block. They could still consider an Ian eviction as a win.

Later Britney returns to the HoH room and the Frank-nomination plan continues. Britney agrees it’s a no-brainer to nominate the previous HoH in return for Shane’s own nomination. So there we have Shane’s plan as of late last night. Shane will nominate Frank and Wil as long as Boogie doesn’t win the Coaches Comp on Friday.

If Boogie does win then I’d expect Shane to still split the noms between Team Janelle and Team Boogie, it just probably wouldn’t be Frank… unless… Boogie is so confident that Shane will hold up their deal that he gives immunity to Ian or Jenn for show. Oh that’d be fun to watch play out on the Live Feeds.

Best line of the night comes from Shane. “I’m not going to tell him [Frank]. He’ll find out when he doesn’t pull a key.” This should be awesome for Big Brother 14 drama!

What do you think Shane should do with his nominations? They’ll be revealed later tonight on the Live Feeds. If you haven’t started watching those then these next few days are a great time to start.
