Big Brother 14 Week 8: You Scratch My Back I’ll Veto Yours| September 3, 2012 at 1:00 PM EDT
Later today the next Big Brother 14 Power of Veto ceremony will be held and we’ll get a whole new round of drama keeping the game afloat until Thursday’s eviction. Listening in on the in-house Live Feed cameras we have a pretty good idea of what’s going to happen and why. Read on for the latest Veto spoilers.
Dan is the winner of this week’s Power of Veto after what it sounds like was a very close OTEV competition between Dan and Frank in the final round. I was initially surprised to hear Dan had allowed himself to be in this situation as it could force him to reveal his dueling alliances. However, if it was down to him or Frank winning the Veto then it makes a lot more sense that he felt he had to win it.
Shortly after the Feeds returned following the Veto competition Dan announced to the cameras that this [Veto] was his ticket to getting Frank out of the house. Dan’s intentions were clearly stated. He wanted Frank out of the house and after numerous nominations and housewide failures it seemed like it could finally happen. Now to figure out what to do with the Veto.
In a bizarre turn of events last week Dan was able to convince Frank to convince Jenn to save him from the block. The stars have aligned for Dan. Dan now has an excuse to save Jenn rather than Frank. Had Frank won the Veto last week and saved Dan then there’d be the expected pressure to save Frank and let Jenn battle it out with the renom. Instead Dan gets to keep his Frank-Jenn alliance concealed, act in its supposed best interest, and return the favor to Jenn.
Last night a little after 2AM the Quack Pack met up in the HoH room to discuss the upcoming Veto ceremony. Everyone agreed with the plan: Veto Jenn, renom Joe in her place, and evict Frank on Thursday.
Dan has also discussed his plan with Frank and things are in the clear there. Frank was confident he’d have the votes to keep Joe because once again the house is lying to him. Well, Frank did feel confident. A little after 1AM last night Frank began discussing with Dan the idea of possibly saving him instead of Jenn and having her face off against Joe on the block. Frank said the DR was making him nervous about his chances at safety before the cams cut away to Fish. If true then it’d seem production is meddling in the game again. When the cams returned Dan deflected the situation for later discussion.
No matter what pressure is applied to Dan today before the Veto ceremony I am confident that Jenn will be saved and Joe will be the renom. Now how those votes turn out on Thursday will be interesting. There are only four votes which means Dan could force a tie and put the blood on Ian’s hands, but will Ian crumble under the sudden rise of pressure and keep Frank in the game? We’ll know more soon!
What do you think? Should Dan use the Veto at all today or keep Ian’s nominations as they are? If he uses the Veto would he be best served by saving Jenn or Frank?
