Big Brother 14 HouseGuest Jenn Arroyo fell victim to a surprise eviction this week when she was voted out unanimously by Dan and Shane. Going in to the game Jenn faced an uphill battle as she was a complete Big Brother novice. After a slow start she managed to get involved in some big plays though it’s hard to say they were all in her best interest.
Read on to hear what Jenn had to say about being a true newbie in the Big Brother house, her strategy, who she thinks will be in the Final 2, and what’s next for her career.
Big Brother Network (BBN): Being new to Big Brother, what surprised you the most compared to what you expected going in to the house?
Jenn Arroyo: I didn’t really know what to expect. I didn’t have too many expectations, I was just really rolling with whatever came at me.
BBN: What was your final week’s strategy? Did you take advantage of a day alone with Ian and Dan to try and work any Final 3 deals to secure your safety?
Last night on Big Brother 14 we moved one step closer to next week’s finale when the first part of the three round final Head of Household competition was held. Two more rounds of this multi-stage battle lay ahead. Here’s a walk through of what to expect.
The first round, which you can rewatch on the Live Feeds Flashback, was held last night after the live eviction show ended with a shocking blindside. Well, we weren’t blindsided and neither were you if you had read my preview article. Last night’s endurance competition was pretty mild and ended with one HG being talked in to dropping out. I’m not kidding. Production should just go ahead and write the check.
Next up will be the second round which is typically a physical challenge. Last season the second round was held on Saturday, so I’d expect it to be this weekend this season as well. The winner from last night’s first round will sit out the second round. The other two HGs will fight it out for a chance to move on and join the winner of the first round in the third and final competition.
The third round will take place live on Wednesday’s 90-minute finale show. The winner in the third competition will then cast the final eviction of the season to determine the Big Brother 14 Final 2 HGs.
Now that we know who won part 1 last night, who do you think has the best chance in the next competition if it’s a physical battle like we’re expecting? Either way, I’m pretty sure we all know which HG is heading to the F2 no matter how the rest of this plays out.
If you missed Big Brother 14 last night, then you need to drop what you’re doing, turn off your phone and find a way to watch it.
Dan’s Big Brother “funeral” was nothing compared to what he pulled off on Thursday night’s live eviction episode. But first (said like Julie Chen), let’s step back a second and start from the episode’s beginning.
The show picked up right after Danielle won Wednesday night’s Head of Household. We get to hear Dan telling her to nominate him and Ian for eviction. Huh? Yes. Dan has some more magic up his sleeve, he lets us know. So Danielle once again follows Dan’s orders, even down to his suggestion for a nomination speech. Only she throws in a couple improper uses of “backdooring.”
Next up we finally get a look at life in the jury house. We get to look in Ashley blowing bubbles, then Britney shows up and she and Ashley start working on dream boards or some sort of garbage. Then they predict Frank will show up next and he does. Frank and Britney get into a spat because Britney finally tells Frank that he isn’t the king of honest gameplay. She reminded him that he lied like everyone else and lying is a part of the game.
Then Joe shows up and Britney and Frank spat some more and that’s that. No sign of Jenn yet. Maybe she didn’t know she was supposed to go to the jury house. I mean, you know, since she knows basically nothing about the game.
Here we go! It’s time for the final Head of Household endurance competition on Big Brother 14! Following the shocking, blindside eviction we’ve got only three HGs left in the game and the winner of this comp will face off against round 2′s winner in the third and final round. There is a lot of pressure on this one so let’s get to it.
So here’s the deal: if you want to watch this competition live as it happens then you have to have your Big Brother Feeds up and running. If you don’t have the feeds then this is exactly when you need to sign-up with the free trial and see how they work. You’ll be able to watch everything live and uncut as it happens!

Tonight on Big Brother 14 we’re about to be treated to an awesome live eviction show. This could be the biggest eviction episode of the season if everything goes as planned. Considering production ripped away our last blindside when Frank was saved by the Coaches Twist this should more than make up for that.
As part of tonight’s show there will be nominations, a Veto competition, a Veto ceremony, and then the big live eviction. After the eviction the first part of the 3-part final HoH competition will kick off. It’ll be an endurance competition that you can only watch online so get your Live Feeds ready to go right now!
After Danielle wins HoH we see Dan tell her to nominate him and Ian to make Shane overly comfortable. He told her this several times in the house.
Big Brother 14 Week 9.5 Nominations:
- Dan & Ian nominated.
We get a glimpse in to the Jury House. Ashley enjoyed practicing blowing bubbles. I’m not kidding. Ashley and Britney were having fun before Frank showed up and then we get some sparks between them.
Big Brother 14 Week 9.5 Veto Competition:
- Danielle wins Veto
Now we’ll shift from the pre-recorded content to the live show. Oh boy oh boy here comes the fun stuff. Blindside should be on its way!
Big Brother 14 Week 9.5 Veto Ceremony:
- Danielle uses the Veto on Dan. Shane is renom’d.
Oh boy oh boy oh boy. Everything is lining up for this blindside. Shane pretending to be surprised by Danielle’s decision, but he really will be by Dan’s in just a minute.
Big Brother 14 Week 9.5 Live Eviction:
- Dan votes to evict Shane!
The blind side went through. Danielle is floored. Shane is shocked.
Before the final commercial we get a glimpse of a forest setting for the first round of the HoH competition, but then the show ends before the comp begins. We’re going to keep watching the Feeds to see what’s up. CBS may have just run out of time as they were pushing it there at the end.
Big Brother 14 Final HoH – Round 1:
- Dan won Round 1! Read the full HoH comp recap.
Get ready for a huge episode of Big Brother 14 tonight when Julie Chen returns to deliver the results of the latest nominations and the Veto competition. After that we should get to watch a live Veto ceremony and the next eviction. It won’t stop there though.
Update: Tonight’s show is going to be wild. I thought only one HG would be blindsided, now it seems there will be two! Exec Producer Allison Grodner tweeted earlier:

Tonight will kick off the 3-part final Head of Household competition. The winner of each of the first two rounds will face off in the third round. The winner of the third round will select who to take to the Final 2. Round 1 is expected to be an endurance competition and you’ll be able to watch it play out after tonight’s east coast broadcast ends. Be sure to have your Live Feeds ready or grab the 3-Day Free Trial right now so you can watch along. Round 2 should be a physical competition. Round 3 is typically Q&A with questions regarding what the various jury members are thinking.
Speaking of the Jury House, we’ll finally get a glimpse of the drama there and from the commercial we’ve seen there should be plenty of drama to go around. Hint: Frank and Britney aren’t getting along, but did we really expect him to be happy to be there?
Don’t miss tonight’s show because this should be awesome to watch play out live and then on the Live Feeds as we watch the first part of the final HoH competition. Join us on Facebook and Twitter to get all the updates throughout tonight’s live show.
