'Big Brother 14' Recap: The Fierce 5 Get Cut Down to 4

John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

We're one week away from the Big Brother 14 finale, and things are about to pick up. One houseguest will be evicted tonight and tomorrow, another one goes as we get down to the final three. But before the eviction, there's a Power of Veto completion and a visit from the U.S. Women's Gymnastics team.

Even though this episode isn't technically live (Julie Chen filmed her portions yesterday), I'll be here throughout the hour with my live updates.


But as we already know due to a twitter post by someone who was at the taping today, Jenn was evicted as expected and Danielle won HOH which was less expected. Now we need to find out who won POV, before the "live" (taped) show airs an hour from now.....

Big Brother 14: Final 3 Scenarios Dissected
By: Matthew Boyer (GTP) | Tagged: Big Brother, Big Brother 14, Big Brother Spoilers

Shane Danielle and Dan toast on Big Brother 14

Now that we know who was evicted last night during the special Big Brother 14 episode taping and who went on to win the next HoH we can start to do some solid speculation regarding who will make it to the Final 3 this season. If youíd rather dodge the latest Big Brother 14 spoilers then stop reading now. Otherwise, letís take a look.

The basis of this discussion will be two assumptions: 1) Jenn was evicted & 2) Danielle is the new HoH. Based on the highly credible leaks last night I couldnít be more confident in these assumptions.

Whatís special about this round of Final 4 competitions is how the Power of Veto becomes more powerful than having won Head of Household. Thatís not to say the HoH is pointless this week though as it guarantees a seat in the Final 3 which means anyone targeting that HG for eviction will now have to hope for another chance in the following round. The Veto holder this week will have the option to change the nominations and then cast the sole vote for eviction. With no opportunity for a tie-breaker this reign of HoH is powerless outside of safety from the moment it begins.

Since Danielle is the alleged HoH that leaves us with a few potential scenarios. Itís effectively pointless, but Danielle will nominate two HGs today if she hasnít already. Danielle previously teased Dan that she would nominate him and he told her thatís exactly what she should do if she wins HoH. As such, I wouldnít be surprised by Dan and Ian nominations. If Danielle doesnít do that then itíll be Shane and Ian. Either way I expect Ian on the block as he has the weakest connection to Danielle of all her options.

Letís look at the 4 potential Veto scenarios starting with Dan. If Dan wins the Veto heíll have his choice between evicting Shane and Ian. This is a no-brainer. Shane is Danielleís other closet ally so getting him out of the picture guarantees Dan with a Final 2 seat. Danielle will take Dan over Ian to the F2 and Ian will take Dan over Danielle.

If Ian wins the Veto then heíll pick between Dan and Shane for eviction. Ian has sworn up and down that heíll take Dan to the end and I believe him. Ian will evict Shane. In that F3 scenario I believe Dan would take Danielle to the F2 and Danielle would take Dan to the F2. If Ian wants to get to the F2 heíll have to win that last HoH battle.

Should Shane win the Veto then heíll get to evict either Dan or Ian. Bound to Danielle, Shane will choose to keep her happy and evict Ian over Dan. From there I believe Dan would take Danielle and Danielle would probably take Dan. Iím highly confident on the former and mostly confident on the latter. If Danielle is love-struck enough by Shane she could consider taking Shane as a way to win his heart, but considering Danielle has hidden things from Shane makes me think sheís on Team Dan to the end. Just like Ianís case, if Shane wants to get to the F2 then heíll need to win the final HoH comps.

Last scenario has Danielle winning the Veto. Now this one is trickier because the eviction will depend on her nominations. Of course she could change her noms if she was trying to hide anything by the original nominations, but Iím guessing with Ian most likely on the block she wonít need to do that. Okay, nevermind, I donít really think this situation is trickier since Iím expecting Ian on the block in either case. If itís Dan and Ian nominated then Shane would vote out Ian to keep Dan. If itís Shane and Ian nominated then Dan will evict Shane to keep his one-sided F2 deal with Ian in play. Should I be completely wrong and Dan and Shane are nomíd then Iíd expect Ian to vote out Shane.

Right now Iíd say Danielle and Dan have effectively secured a F3 seat. Who ends up in the third spot there just depends on who wins the Veto as detailed above. Shane and Ian both have a fifty-fifty shot at the chance. A Shane or Danielle Veto win secures Shaneís F3 spot. A Dan or Ian Veto win secures Ianís F3 spot. A Danielle win goes back to all the potential outcomes with 2/3 of them favoring Ian. Iíd say Ian has a slightly better shot at F3 than Shane.

Now itís your turn. What do you think will happen? Are my scenarios way off or do you agree? Share your thoughts while we wait for the Live Feeds to return!

Update: Haste makes waste. In my rush to summarize nearly 800 words in to a few sentences I mangled my thoughts by stating a 50/50 shot for Ian and Shane. Iíve corrected that error to show my suspected odds favoring Ian.
