Team America: What Happens When A Member Is Voted Out?| August 28, 2014 at 12:30 PM EDT
With tonight’s pending eviction on Big Brother and Donny Thompson being in serious danger of being sent to the Jury House a lot of fans are wondering what happens to Team America when a member is voted out? Will it end there or continue on? Let’s discuss.
From the very first week of voting for Team America we knew there was a real threat of its members being evicted. I mean look at Joey Van Pelt, she didn’t even last long enough to meet the rest of the team before she was sent packing. Luckily for viewers and production the next round of TA members had much better staying power.
Now in Week 9 we’re looking at what is expected to be Donny Thompson’s eviction. He is one third of Team America along with Derrick Levasseur and Frankie Grande. So if he goes does the Team America series of missions end?
If Donny is voted out tonight, even by his own TA allies, the Team America twist will continue on without him. The missions will persist and so will the opportunity to win cash as a result, but Donny won’t be eligible for the rewards.
Even if a second member is voted out it appears as though a solo member may continue to rack up the wins (or with their record so far this season, the losses) until no one is left at all.
I do not expect another member to be voted in to replace Donny. Instead Derrick and Frankie will take care of the challenges on their own.
It’s too bad for Donny there wasn’t some stipulation for TA to need everyone present to continue or even some rule against voting out their own members, but anything like that would have been too restrictive. Had another member been voted out right away it could have led to a quick demise of the twist. And considering this alliance was forged by viewers, not the HGs, forcing them to play nice with each other could have presented its own issues.
What do you think of Team America continuing on without Donny? Should the twist end with the three-member alliance does as well or is it better to let it keep running until they are all gone?
