Can America’s Vote be to have Julie Chen go ‘Beast Mode’ and enter the house to play the game? I know I would enjoy that twist! Tonight’s episode solidified another showmance ending but another blooming and we’re treated to a repeat competition for HOH. It’s just another live eviction episode of Big Brother!

A Big Bang Bust

As Penny & Leonard broke up on the “Big Bang Theory” so have Ian & Ashley. While Ashley is now seeking a showmance with Frank. I’m going to dub this showmance “FrAsh” because it only seems fitting. Ladies … would you really buy that move Frank did? Guys … has that worked for you?

Either way, I really liked how Britney was just letting Ian know it’s over, while Dan was kind of pestering Ian that he hasn’t done anything more. But ZingBot from last episode definitely made it clear for Ian. Does anyone want to see Ian & Ashley get back together or will “FrAsh” be going strong?

The Cook Survives Another Week

The vote wasn’t unanimous, as I predicted, but Wil was sent packing with a 6-2 vote. His Team T#!s alliance voted for him to stay, while the Quack Pack and Boogie sent him packing assuring Joe another week in the house. The “pleas” were a bit long but quite entertaining.

It was interesting to see only Joe’s family for a segment and not Wil’s family or friends. What do you think America? Was that was a subtle hint to us, the viewers, that Joe was staying? I think so and Joe’s “Jun (Season Four Winner) Strategy,” of cooking his way to safety and to the$500,000 prize. Wasn’t it funny that Wil’s exit was eerily similar to Janelle’s exit walk? Coincidence? I think not.

They’re like two peas in a pod even though they didn’t end on good terms. In the end, karma bit Wil in the butt.

HOH Competition Winner – Jenn

I’m still hoping Jenn wins this HOH! Now for the consolation prizes; I think Dan will win safety for the week and Boogie will win the $10,000. If anyone remembers from last season, this competition has finished but the name was changed and “temptations” was added in the title.  Either way it’s still a good competition but it would be nice to see a new game or twist to the competitions.

Half Way Point Prediction Winner

So as Julie Chen said, it’s already the half way point of Big Brother and that means summer is almost over. I think it’s only fitting that I give a prediction of who the winner will be for this season. As much as I want to go with Jeff, Dr. Wil and Chelsea Gheesling, I don’t think Ian will win this game.

My prediction, at this half way point, is that the winner will be Dan. I can really see him go to the final two and winning this.

Even though his game play has been pretty much the same as his first season, he’s definitely making the right alliances and choosing his battles carefully.

But I’ve mentioned this before  — now is the time for Dan and the other players to start thinking “end game” scenarios. Which means to start eliminating strong competitors and relying on the weak ones. So we’ll see if my prediction of the winner will pan out.

Tune in Sunday to see who’ll win this HOH competition and who’ll they’ll nominate for eviction. I really hope this next week we’ll see Chilltown 3.0 on the chopping block. Also who’s excited for the Double Eviction? That means the two voted out this week will start the Jury House! Wouldn’t it be funny to see both Frank & Boogie packing? It would not only be great but awesome to see both of them gone.
