Big Brother 14 -2012 Day 16

Not much to add to this. Coaches comp. this afternoon and POV comp. tomorrow will dictate the path out of several possibilities that the game will take.

'Big Brother 14' Spoilers: What Happened After Shane Won HoH?

John Kubicek

It's always interesting to see what happens when the power shifts on Big Brother 14. Last week was mildly interesting since Frank went from being nominated to being HoH, but since he'd already formed a super alliance between Boogie and Janelle's teams, he was already in power. But this week, Shane went from being the number one target for nearly everyone left in the house to sitting pretty in the HoH room.

And Thursday night's Big Brother After Dark was full of exciting twists and shifting alliances.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains details from the Big Brother 14 live feeds.

Here's what you need to know about where people's heads are at.

Shane has made it clear to Danielle that she is 100 percent safe this week. The two even struck a Final 2 deal and shook on it in the HoH room. As Britney said to Dan, it's like their children are dating.

Shane's original plan was to put up Wil and Joe with the target being Wil. But Britney and Danielle were able to convince him that, in order for Danielle to have all the power as the swing vote, it's best to nominate one person from Janelle's team and one person from Frank's team.

They basically decided that they'd be happy if Frank, Ian, Wil or Joe went home, depending on the Coaches Competition and Power of Veto results. Sure, last week Shane made a deal with Frank not to put him up, but the two girls have already talked him out of that.

You see, Shane isn't very bright. Sure, he's insanely good-looking (Showtime 2 viewers got a nice long scene of him folding laundry without his shirt on while strategizing), but he's easily manipulated. He's admitted that he never actually watched Big Brother before and doesn't understand the game. He's token eye candy for this season.

Danielle, on the other hand, is proving to be smarter than the average HG. Sure, she annoyed the crap out of me when she cried about Dan letting her play the game on her own (her co-dependency with him is still a problem), but she is smart enough to see what she needs to do.

My favorite moment from Thursday's Big Brother After Dark came when Dan and Danielle were rehashing their deal with Shane and Britney. Shane's primary target was Wil because he was sure Wil was coming after him. "Why does Shane think Wil hates him?" Dan asked. "Because he does," Danielle responded.

Danielle knows that Wil can't stand Shane and would definitely target him, while Frank probably wouldn't go after Shane if he won next week. But she also knows Wil WON'T nominate her and Frank probably would, so Danielle is playing Shane to get out HER biggest threat, not his. It's a bit like the last season of The Walking Dead when Lori was whispering in Rick's ear about how Shane was a big problem, and then Rick killed him.

So while Shane and Danielle were solidifying their alliance and their plan to possibly evict Frank, Boogie's entire team was basically asleep at the wheel. That left Janelle's team to scramble.

Janelle, who is an emotionless robot, (but very Cutie ) immediately told Joe and Wil to throw Frank under the bus as hard as they possibly could. That woman will turn on you faster than a venomous cobra biggrin . While Joe and Wil know they're targets, they also realize that if they can get someone from Boogie's team nominated alongside them, they can get the votes to stay because they think they have Danielle in their back pocket.

How will everything unfold? The Coaches Competition and the Power of Veto will certainly shake things up, but right now it seems that Frank is the biggest target, followed by Wil, Ian and Joe. After the first three people sent home were girls (not counting Willie, who got expelled), it's nice that a guy will finally be going home.

Equally fun will be next week. Everyone is planning for next week, with Shane trying to figure out how he'll stay safe. But with the possibility of some or all of the coaches entering the game, no deals from this week will matter.


I agree that all four coaches will enter the game and that's definitely what the prods. want.

On Thursday's episode of Big Brother 14, Julie Chen revealed the latest twist. America will get to vote on whether the four coaches will be given the opportunity to enter the game as players.

Hopefully this will go over better than last week's big trade twist, which didn't happen. That's what happens when you give people the option to do something, and this week's new twist might backfire as well. But it seems obvious that America will vote in favor of letting the coaches choose, because the possibility of something is better than nothing. And even if America doesn't vote that way, I'm sure CBS will lie and say they did, because the producers know they need to shake things up.

The real question is whether the coaches would actually accept the offer to play the game instead of coach it. Let's look at each coach and see what they might do.

Dan: He seems to love coaching, but since he's down to one player (and that player is Danielle), he has to know that his odds of winning the $100,000 are slim to none. He has nothing to lose by entering the game.

Britney: Similar to Dan, she only has one player, and Shane is a HUGE target after basically winning four of the first five competitions (he was a part of the team that won the first HoH). Unless she thinks he can win either HoH or PoV EVERY SINGLE WEEK, Britney has to know Shane isn't going to win. Also, since she's generally perceived as the worst coach and weakest player, she might have a better chance to survive as a player.

Janelle: Janelle has a pretty solid team and, if all three of her players remain safe after this week, she could have a chance at victory. But Janelle is a competitor and she hates sitting on the sidelines, not being involved in the action. I'm pretty sure she'd jump at a chance to play again, especially since she's never won.

Boogie: Like Janelle, he could survive this week with all three players, and people like Frank and Ian could very easily win the entire game. So Boogie would probably have the most reason to stay a coach to try and collect $100,000. But there are two problems with that. First, he's quite successful and rich and doesn't need the money. He's playing for glory. Second, as Dr. Will Kirby said, Boogie's biggest weakness is his Texas-sized ego. Boogie is so damn cocky that he would probably jump at the chance to play the game again just to have some fun and prove how amazing he is.

If the coaches are given the option to play the game, I suspect all four of them will. Why would they want to just sit back and not play the game for the rest of the season? They would also need to align with one another as the newbies would most likely turn on them.

It will also mean we would actually get some double eviction nights. Right now there are seven live eviction episodes BEFORE the finale.

Here are the five possible outcomes.

If no coaches enter the game, the show will need to have one non-elimination week, or bring back one of the evicted HGs.

If one coach enters the game, there will only be two people in the finale.

If two coaches enter the game, then we'll either have a final three or one double eviction episode.

If three coaches enter the game, we'll have a final three AND a double eviction episode.

If all four coaches enter the game, we'll have a final three and TWO double eviction weeks.


Next Thursday's episode is bound to be an exciting one that could definitely change the entire game. If any or all of the coaches enter the game, alliances will be forced to shift and break up and chaos will ensue. After the rather predictable second week, that sort of insanity would be a welcome change of pace.

There is some concern that Ian is putting himself on Slop (what the Have Nots eat) too much. This makes the third week. He's pretty small and people always lose weight during their time on Slop.
I'm that Janelle won the coaches comp. By saving Wil she tweaks the expected nominations. The nom ceremony has been done tonight....still waiting to see who went on the block... scratch

'Big Brother 14' Spoilers: Week 3 Coaches Competition Results
Friday, July 27, 2012

With news that the coaches may enter the game as players next week on Big Brother 14, this may be the final Coaches Competition of the season. Thus far Boogie has dominated the game, though technically Janelle won last week (but only because Britney and Boogie were DQed and Dan was trying to lose).

So which coach has the power this week and who's safe?

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 14 spoilers.

Janelle won the Coaches Competition and she gave Wil immunity. She had the option to trade once again, but declined it. Of course she did, is this show really stupid enough to think that, after all the time the coaches have put into their players, that they would suddenly trade one? That's just bad planning on the production side.

This clearly sucks for Shane since Wil was his number one target. That basically leaves Joe, Frank and Ian, because Shane wouldn't waste his HoH on Ashley or Jenn and he already made a Final 2 deal with Danielle. For the moment it sounds like it could be Frank and Joe, though Shane and Britney could probably fall on whatever side is best for them later in the week.

It also makes the Power of Veto a lot more important, because if one of those three guys wins it (or if someone on one of their teams wins it and uses it on them), Shane's list of potential nominees will shrink radically. Britney is smart enough not to waste time making deals before the Power of Vet because she knows that could change everything.

Now is also the point where the coaches start campaigning for things they were campaigning AGAINST week or two ago. For instance, Janelle could've easily sent Frank home in week 1, but she kept him, although now all she can talk about is getting rid of him. Similarly, last week Britney's claims that Danielle should've gone home to get rid of Dan fell on deaf ears, but now Boogie is trying to make the EXACT SAME argument to her. So last week it was a bad idea, but now it's a great idea? Funny how that works.

As for Have-Nots, it seems Britney got to pick them (not sure how or why) and she went with Joe, Ian and someone else. Sorry Ian, but when you tell Julie Chen on the first live show that you could be a Have-Not for all 75 days, that's kind of an open invitation for people to give it to you every week. But it seems Ian also won $3,000 somehow from the Coaches Competition, so obviously there were multiple prizes/rewards/punishments that the coaches probably got to split up.
