Matt Hoffman (BB12) makes a special return today with his thoughts on Big Brother 14’s “Reset” event on Thursday’s live show. Matt doesn’t pull any punches with his reactions to what brought the game back to square one. Read on for Hoffman’s brutal honesty.
Quite a twisted up series of events we had in the Big Brother house last night. Julie tells us that America has voted to give the coaches the option to forego their coaching duties and enter the game as players for the $500,000. Here are the parameters of their decision options, as I understood it…
If any ONE coach hit the “reset button” in the Diary Room
- Every coach is forced to enter the game as a player.
- There is no eviction tonight.
If EVERY SINGLE coach passes on hitting the “reset button”
- Coaches remain coaches.
- Pigs fly.
- Someone gets evicted.
- Hell freezes over.
- Big Brother is going to bring back houseguests that were already kicked out who are probably scorned/angry.
- Big Brother owns the souls of the coaches’ firstborn children.
- The coaches lose their stipend.
- Upon exiting the house, the coaches must live the rest of their lives in captivity on Allison Grodner’s island of misfits reality slaves.
Oh no, coaches – no one made you push that button. But what coach in their right mind (I said “in their right mind”, Boogie) would opt for the whirlwind of cow dung spiraling around Option B??? Of course at least one coach will surely push that poorly-made toy buzzer. And therein is the root of my problem…
Another week has ended in the Big Brother 14 house and even though things got turned upside down Thursday night when the coaches entered the game, there’s still a week to look back on. Sure Shane’s Head of Household reign is now a total wash, as is the big game changing move. Even Janelle’s hard work this week was for nothing. But that doesn’t mean there wasn’t some great (and terrible) game play.
Best Players of the Week
1. Shane: For the second week in a row, Shane’s game can’t go unrewarded. He won HOH and his third Power of Veto in a row. And he actually used the Veto, mJaking a game move that hasn’t been used so well in years. The fact that he played Boogie and Frank so well all the way up to what we thought would be the live eviction show, says a lot for his overall game play. We already know he’s a good physical player, but now we know he’s a good strategical player as well. Whether or not his social game will stack up will likely be tested this week when he’s not in power.
2. No one: I mean, really. There was no other good player this week. I gained a little respect for Wil for standing up for his own game and not letting Janelle control his every move. But I think he would be better off letting her do so. And Danielle is only concerned with bagging Shane. Jenn is still apparently hiding in the walls and Ian’s summer vacay continues. Ashley remains stoned from that really powerful bowl she smoked before entering sequester back in July. Frank didn’t do anything. Then there’s Joe. Speaking of Joe, let’s segway.
We welcomed a lot of new readers to the Big Brother 14 Live Feeds last night with the arrival of the season’s first endurance competition. If you missed that action then check it out on Flashback. That was one of the best we’ve seen in seasons as it ran for almost three and a half hours. Now that you’ve got your Live Feeds here’s what you can expect.
All Friday we’ll be watching the HGs scramble to kiss the HoH’s butt while covering their own. The new HoH will be making nomination decisions and holding lots of meetings throughout the day. Previous enemies will suddenly become new besties.
Then later tonight we’ll be able to watch the fallout from the nomination ceremony. Two BB14 HGs will go up on the block and the backlash will begin. We can’t see the ceremony itself on the Feeds, but the real drama comes afterward as the house reacts.
On Saturday the Veto players will be picked and the competition will be held shortly after. Both events should happen in the early afternoon. We’ll be able to watch and discover who is wearing the coveted medallion to start learning what could happen next.
The Veto ceremony won’t happen until Monday, but if the Veto falls in to the right hands we’ll get lots of pleading and deal making throughout the house until then.
Fridays through Mondays are really the most exciting days in the Big Brother house so enjoy your new Live Feeds and watch along with all of us!

All week — OK, all season — long, we’ve been wondering if the Big Brother 14 coaches would enter the game and we got our answer during Thursday’s live episode.
As you probably know by now, the coaches did choose to enter the game after America voted yes to give them the option. Oh, and that little twist resets the game, meaning no one was evicted either. So it’s not only Britney, Janelle, Dan and Boogie’s lucky day, it’s also Joe’s and Frank’s.
At the start of the episode we pick up where we left off the night before. Shane had just used the Power of Veto on Ashely and renominated Frank. We got to see Ashley think “she did it!” Did what? Surely she doesn’t think she got herself off the block? Hahahahaha.
We also get to see Frank and Boogie’s shock and awe. That’s pretty quickly squashed when everyone involved in the big game move makes Frank and Boogie think Frank really isn’t the target. They just wanted to control the votes so Joe would be the one to definitely go home. Riiiiiiight. But then somewhere along the way, Britney tells Boogie that Ian made them worried with his comment about putting Shane up. So maybe Frank is at risk? Who knows. (And who cares since that’s all a moot point later anyway). Boogie let’s Ian have it, but not in a terribly awful way, for not telling Britney what she needed to hear.
Here we go! It’s our very first Big Brother 14 Endurance HoH Competition! We just saw the Coaches decide to enter the game and in a big twist there will be no elimination. That means everyone will be competing tonight including both nominees & the HoH.
The endurance competition is called “Walk the Plank” and it’s set up like many past endurance competitions. They’re perched on small ledges as the wall tilts forward and back. The last HG standing becomes the next HoH.
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!
Big Brother 14 Week 4 HoH Endurance Comp Results:
I’ll be updating this post here with the live eviction and HoH results as it’s revealed on the show. Have your Live Feeds ready to go (not signed up yet? use the Free Trial) because when the broadcast show is over the Live Feed returns and that’ll be the only place you can watch the endurance battle play out. Combining tonight’s big reveal of the Coaches entering the game and the deceitful voting, this will be a big one.
Before we get to the eviction, Julie Chen makes the announcement that the Coaches will have the choice to enter the game. If they enter then there’s no eviction and all HGs will play in tonight’s competition. Wow, that’s a little bit of a twist on the twist.
The 4 coaches will have the chance to accept the challenge. All it takes is for 1 of the 4 coaches to accept and they’re all bound. Yep, Britney is up first and accepts.
Big Brother 14 – Coaches Twist voting:
- Britney votes ‘yes’ – that’s all it takes
- Boogie votes ‘no’
- Dan votes ‘yes’
- Janelle votes ‘yes’
There is no eviction tonight after all. All HGs are now players and all will remain in the game. Now it’s time for the endurance competition! All HGs head to the backyard.
Big Brother 14 Week 4 HoH Competition – ‘Walk the Plank’:
- The HGs are perched on a small ledge aside a pirate ship. The last HG standing wins HoH. We’ll be live posting updates here.
Once the eviction show is over the Live Feeds turn back on and we’ll either have a brand new HoH in the Big Brother house or the endurance competition will rage on! Make sure you’re ready to watch the house react to who is in power. The nominations will be revealed on Friday night with the Veto competition on Saturday, so stay close by!
