When you end up on the losing side of two out of three there’s not much you can do other than throw your weight around in the form of threats. That’s exactly what we’re down to now on Big Brother 14. The first two rounds are over and the only thing between two HGs and the chance at a half-million dollars is one last set of questions. Well, that and a whole lot of threats.
After Ian won the second round of the final HoH competition Dan and Danielle’s plan was put in to action. Dan immediately celebrated Ian’s win and Danielle went in to assault mode. Their goal was to frighten Ian in to throwing the third round so Dan could take Danielle on to the end per his desire to fulfill his role as a Big Brother coach. So far it doesn’t seem to be working.
Danielle has been pushing at Ian with threats that if he wins the next round and cuts her then she’ll lose his vote and Shane’s vote. Instead of worrying Ian, Danielle has managed to annoy and aggravate Ian.
Flashback to last night at 9:11PM BBT to find Danielle working on Ian. She is digging in and reiterates that he’ll lose lots of votes and she’ll go out “guns blazing.” She tells him Dan will win 5-2 if he goes to the end with Ian. Danielle goes over this reason and that reason why he shouldn’t evict her. Ian doesn’t talk much but defends himself from time to time. She goes on for forty minutes before going inside while Ian heads for the comfort of his favorite hammock.
Later Ian comments to himself that he won’t be turned by threats in reference to what Danielle’s been doing. Ian seems committed to taking Dan with him to the Final 2 and he’s repeatedly said that he will not throw the final competition.
The funny thing is that Dan is now getting worried about his chances at the end if he wins the next round and cuts Ian. Dan has been considering his options aloud and may throw the third round to Ian so Ian cuts Danielle instead of him cutting Ian. But if Danielle manages to get through to Ian and Ian also tries to throw it then we could have an interesting situation. It’d be the first guy to screw up and accidentally get a question right that wins. I don’t think it’ll come to that, but it’d by entertaining and probably obvious.
What do you think Ian and Dan should each do heading in to Wednesday night’s finale show? Should either of them throw it to the other or fight to guarantee their F2 seat?
