The Big Brother 14 action presses on this afternoon with the Power of Veto competition and the stakes couldn’t be higher. The nominations are in and the board is set, but thanks to yesterday’s Pandora’s Box event there could be some big changes hitting the game.
This week’s HoH has suddenly realized what could happen come Thursday if one of two people wins the Veto. The best laid plans could be completely thrown out the window. Then again, HGs continue to spread the word that production is pressed hard to control the players’ actions so who knows.
Read on to find out who won the Veto and what that could mean for the game this week.
Mike Boogie, winner of Big Brother 7: All-Stars, was evicted this Thursday on Big Brother 14. He came as a Coach, was dragged in to the game by his fellow Coaches, and was ultimately sent packing at the hands of his own player. Now that’s Big Brother!
I’ll admit I wasn’t a past fan of Boogie, but he definitely brought something to the game this season. It wasn’t always positive, but he never held back and that helped make it more enjoyable for many of us. Everyone season needs a “love to hate” kind of HG.
I had the pleasure of speaking with Boogie on the phone to discuss Ian’s betrayal, his last words to Frank, who he wants to see in the Final 2, and more. Read on to find out what Mike Boogie had to say.
Big Brother Network (BBN): Why did you hold Frank back when he wanted to target Dan earlier in the season?
Mike Boogie Malin: I really truly believed in my heart of hearts that Dan thought we could be a real powerful force together. My idea was to try and make it a threesome [w/ Frank]. Obviously he had Danielle and other people. At the end of the day, Dan just didn’t want Frank around and I was unwilling to bend on that concept. I trusted Dan and I play no fear, no regrets, but obviously there were points in the game where I could have made different decisions. We could have voted out Danielle and Dan when I was still a coach and we didn’t do it. We could have backdoor’d Dan when Frank was HoH. I don’t even know if Dan would have been voted out now that I know they were altogether. Who knows if it even would have worked. Obviously if you don’t win there are always moments you’re going to look back on.
BBN: Your parting words to Frank were, “Ian can’t be trusted.” Knowing what you know now, would you still advise Frank against working with him?
What a day in the Big Brother 14 house. We had the fallout from the double eviction episode, Pandora’s Box returned, and nominations were revealed. There wasn’t as much drama from the nominations like we had last week but the real action is sure to follow. Pandora’s Box left a surprising power in the game and the pressure is on its winner to make the right decision.

Big Brother 14 Live Feed Highlights – Friday, August 24, 2012:
This week’s nominations have arrived on Big Brother 14 and there are no surprises. The new HoH had a target and a plan to make it happen. Step one is nomination. Step three is profit! I kid. Step two is Veto and three is eviction. It might not be that simple.
Earlier today Pandora’s Box hit the house and has opened a new window of opportunity for the Quack Pack. The stars will have to align, but there is a glimmer of hope for them.
Now that the nomination ceremony results are in we know who is on the block and what to expect this week. Read on to find out who is on the chopping block.
Big Brother 14 Week 7 Nominations:
Expect the expected when it comes to Pandora’s Box on Big Brother 14. We’ve been waiting all week for Pandora to return after first spotting the “?” cube in the crane arcade game last Friday. Earlier today, a little after 1PM BBT the Feeds cut to Trivia after we heard HGs increasingly discuss Pandora’s Box and hearing construction in the backyard. Meanwhile Frank indicated he would take the risk and open the Box.

Ashley Iocco became the second victim of the amazingly awesome double eviction episode of Big Brother 14 last night. That also made her the first jury member of the season which means she holds 1/7 of the power to decide who gets the crown and half-million dollar check next month. I hope someone explains that part to her.
Ashley’s eviction wasn’t surprising after she made a week of bad decisions after a previous five weeks of questionable ones. Her decision to align herself with Boogie & Frank when both players were already on the block was simply not a good one. Combine that with her inability to articulate a defense or strategy in her final days and moments were a Big Brother death sentence.
As much as I was frustrated to watch her meander through the season it’s hard not to smile at a HG whose strategy is to “love love” as she told us in her preseason interview. With that, I give you our eviction interview with ex-HG Ashley Iocco.
Big Brother Network (BBN): What drove your decision to side with Boogie & Frank this past week?
Ashley Iocco: I wanted to make a move…I didn’t want to be categorized as a floater who didn’t deserve to be there. I wanted to be a part of a team and I wasn’t winning comps, so I felt like they would have my back and take me further in the game. I thought Boogie was a strong enough player that he could have somehow saved himself.
BBN: Do you regret your decision to vote out your coach, Janelle?
