Big Brother 14 Episode 12 Breakdown: Let’s All Clique
America, I feel like I just watched a teenage movie staring Lindsay Lohan & Rachel McAdams on tonight’s episode. I feel like the Big Brother house was transported into a high school. Where the brain (Ian) wanted to be a part of the cool kids (Dan, Shane, Britney & Danielle) and the mean guy (Boogie) was going after his threat (Janelle). Yes, everything I’ve observed in high school can also be seen in the Big Brother house. Don’t you agree America?
I wasn’t really surprised that Ian was finally cutting ties with Boogie. I was really excited that he realized that his former coach wasn’t really looking out for him. However Ian’s decision to wear the dog suit was a very bad strategy. The whole sacrificial lamb act is getting old and it’s time he started playing this game to win. I did like that he was noble but again shared the torture with the other houseguests. We all love to see other houseguests get tortured. It was funny seeing Boogie having a bit about his “brain” and “brawn” houseguests getting the punishments during his diary room confession.
Boogie Vs Janelle
If the coaches can’t band together then their against each other, right? Well it’s the case for the two veteran houseguests, who are in their third appearance in the Big Brother house. I know I’ve said this multiple times but it’s something to take note. You’ve got Boogie & Janelle who have been against each other since day one. The old phrase, “Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer,” speaks volumes between the two. These two are definitely playing to win the game but it’s an all-out war between the two. Who’s going to win this battle? It seems that it’s in Boogie’s favor, however the Big Brother house is known to change sides day by day.
My America’s Choice Pick
America I’ve been good about picking what the “Have Nots” get to have with their slop so here’s my selection for this upcoming week, Candy Cane & Cod. Beside the fact that I prefer that over Rice Cakes & Rutabagas or Onions and Oat Bran, you could crush the Candy Canes small enough to put in slop and for the Cod you can get your protein and omega 3s. I’m personally not a fan of rutabagas and I don’t want my breath to stink from eating onions. So America let’s give the “Have Nots” Candy Cane & Cod. Speaking of America’s Choice, does anyone else miss when the houseguests had to compete for luxury items and food competitions? I’ve been on the fan sites and word is that these houseguests have been getting pampered. Do you think it could be because of the former houseguests getting special treatment? Or has the production team gone lax with the houseguests? Either way I’d like to see more competitions as well as punishments. Call me crazy, but it would definitely make for more ”TV” moments for each episode.
Top Player Of The Night – Boogie
I hate to say it, but Boogie has been doing a great job playing the game socially. He’s getting into the minds of the other houseguests to ensure Frank safety and to put up Janelle for eviction. However his cockiness bothers the heck out of me and I hope he’s gone before Jury House. I did find it great to see Boogie call Janelle out but I wish Janelle threw it back to Boogie. I’m looking forward to seeing Janelle cause some havoc before tomorrow night’s live eviction, if she is to go home. Hopefully the buxom blonde will dodge a bullet and send Frank home.
My Prediction For Eviction – Janelle
I know I said that I hope Frank gets the boot, but let’s be honest America. Danielle now wants Janelle out, Boogie wants Janelle out and Dan is glad to have “Chilltown” back on the same page. Unless Janelle pulls some tricks or causes some explosive mayhem, she’ll be getting the boot and even before the Jury House. Unless there’s another “twist” in the game, Janelle will be done.
Prediction For The HOH Competition
I think tomorrow’s HOH competition will be an elimination game that involves memory. I’ll make an even bolder prediction and bet either Dan or a floater (Ashley, Joe or Jen) will win tomorrow. The house is definitely divided and they’ve already formed their groups. It’s Chilltown 3.0 (Frank & Boogie), The Showmance & their coaches (Danielle, Shane, Dan & Britney), the floaters (Ashley, Joe, Jen & Wil) and the “Outsider” (Ian). If Janelle were to stay then she would have her houseguests who she coached on her side with the exception of Wil.
Looking forward to seeing Julie Chen (aka Chen Bot) speak with the house. A good friend of mine brought the idea that the next twist should bring the Chen Bot into the game. Wishful thinking I guess. I’m looking forward to tomorrow’s eviction and whether we’ll see Frank dodge his third bullet or if Janelle sends Boogie’s main ally packing.
