Shane Meaney might have entered the Big Brother 14 as a complete novice, but he came in swinging and racked up win after win early on. After winning three straight Vetoes and two HoH’s Shane scaled back his game and let other HGs become the bigger targets. Aligning with the powerful “Quack Pack” Shane moved far down the line until his time in the game was shockingly cut short.
I had the chance to pose a few questions to Shane this week after his eviction and took the opportunity to ask “Why?!” Read on for Shane’s responses on why he went along with Danielle’s renom plan, what was the hardest part of the game, and who he thinks will be at the end.
Big Brother Network (BBN): Why oh why did you agree to let Danielle replace you on the block with the Veto?
Shane Meaney: I didn’t really agree. I obviously didn’t want this to happen but I had my trust in her and at the time I had my trust in Dan. I didn’t want it to happen but she had all the power and it was her ultimate decision.
BBN: You started out strong winning competitions early on but then seemed to throttle back. Was that intentional or did the competition ramp up?
Just three little mice left in Big Brother 14. The drama has cooled since Thursday night’s explosive eviction, but there’s still work to be done. One competition down and two to go before the big finale show. HGs spent the day cheerful in a group of three, but whispering in pairs while they awaited the second round of the final HoH.

Big Brother 14 Live Feed Highlights – Friday, September 14, 2012:
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.
