Hardly anything is happening in the BB house now given that they are down to 3 people, okay, Danielle in her bikini out by the pool right now, but other than that it gives us time to read John's blogs about recent days....

'Big Brother 14' Spoilers: Who Won Part 2 of the Final HoH Competition?

It's all over until the finale. Big Brother 14 has held its last competition of the season, not including the third part of the final HoH which will air live during the finale. Inside the house it's now four days of waiting.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 14 spoilers.

Dan won part 1 of the final HoH competition on Thursday.

Ian won part 2.

As soon as the feeds came back, Danielle was throwing a massive hissyfit about how, if Ian wins and takes Dan to the end, she will taint the entire jury against Ian and convince everyone to vote for Dan. She claims she can convince Shane and Ashley not to vote for Ian. She's mad at Ian for turning into Dan, still acting like she doesn't ALSO have a deal with Dan.

But this is all an act dreamed up by Dan and Danielle to threaten and bully Ian into throwing the final HoH competition to Dan so that Ian doesn't cut Danielle and earn her wrath. The plan also involves Dan continuing to say he'd bring Ian to the end, which he wouldn't. This might work on Shane, but Ian isn't a moron and he's telling Dan that he will NOT throw the final competition. Dan seems to think otherwise.

Now it all comes down to the last HoH competition, which is typically a simple six question quiz held during the live show where the HGs are asked questions about exit interviews from the six members of the jury.

There are only four possible ways this game could end, so let's look at them.

Dan Wins and Takes Ian to the Finale: This won't happen so I won't even bother writing about it.

Dan Wins and Takes Danielle: This has been Dan's dream all along. He wants to win at the end and take his former player because he knows it will make everyone in the jury think that his coaching and gameplay are what dragged Danielle to the end, thus ensuring that they will vote for him to win. It's safe to assume that Shane will NEVER vote for Dan. I have faith Britney and Ian would both respect the game enough to give the win to Dan. Assuming Frank has had enough time to calm down (and assuming he will start to appreciate Dan's backstabbing once he sees what happened to Shane), he and Ashley could easily go for Dan. It helps that Frank views Danielle as a pathetic, Bachelor contestant wannabe and doesn't respect her at all as a player. Jenn and Joe are wildcards, as they have been all along, but I think Dan's final speech to the jury would provide enough Mist to get him the win. I also think Britney in the jury house is the key to Dan's success because she will be pushing hard for a serious game player to win, and that's not Danielle.

Ian Wins and Takes Dan: If Ian wins the last competition he will have four HoH wins and two PoV wins. That, combined with forming the Quack Pack and betraying Boogie, should easily get him a win over Dan, especially since everyone hates Dan. Shane wouldn't vote for Dan and Britney would go for Ian since she likes him. I think no one in the jury WANTS to give Dan the money, and with six wins and a huge alliance under his belt, Ian is worthy enough to allow them not to let Dan win. Sure, Danielle is bitching and moaning about how she'll turn everyone against Ian if he does this, but that's exactly what Adam said last season when he voted against Rachel because she didn't take him, and that didn't hurt her one bit.

Ian Wins and Takes Danielle: This would be an unlikely and possibly dangerous move. Shane and Dan would probably vote for Danielle (Shane for love and Dan for personal glory so he can say he coached the winner). I could see the sympathy factor being strong with Danielle, but I'm not sure that would be strong enough to sway the rest of the jury. As I said, Frank doesn't respect Danielle, and if Ian evicts Dan at the end, that will make Frank and others VERY happy.


It's hard to predict what will happen in the finale because it depends on the jury's state of mind. Will they understand that it's a game or will they punish someone they hate? Will they reward an undeserving winner out of spite for everyone else, or sympathy for the tough emotional stress she's been under?

I'm obviously of the belief that both Dan and Ian have played superior games to that of Danielle, so I should hope that whichever guy wins the last HoH will win the game.

UPDATE: On the live feeds Dan is now talking to himself, saying that he thinks his best move is to throw the final part to Ian and let him win and evict Danielle. He thinks he can NOT win against Danielle, but he can win against Ian, and that his conscience (yes, he has one, as he says) wouldn't allow him to evict Danielle if he wins. Clearly he's getting a little too cocky, because I'm not sure he could beat Ian, but I think he can beat Danielle, even though both Dan and Ian have convinced themselves that Danielle will win if she makes the finale.

Who are you rooting for to win the final HoH competition and who do you think will win Big Brother 14?

Big Brother 14 was a very unusual season. At times it fell like the most boring one ever (see Frank's second HoH reign when he evicted Wil) and at other times, it was the most exciting season ever (Dan's funeral).

The one thing that is undeniable is that it was a season of records. Big Brother 14 had some of the biggest winners and losers in the history of the game, as well as the most lopsided gender disparity ever. And now there's a chance it could end with a big record as well. Here are just some of the statistical records set during this season.

Most Competition Wins by Men: 21 out of 26 (81 percent)

There were 13 HoH competitions and 13 PoV competitions this season, and men won almost all of them (including the special second Veto from Pandora's Box and the final HoH, which is between Dan and Ian). Men won 11 of 13 HoHs and 10 of 13 PoVs, both of which are records for a single season. In total, men won 81 percent of the competitions this season, compared to the previous high of 71 percent in seasons 9 and 12. The saddest part is that, for the five wins the women had, four of them came from one person, Danielle.

Most Nominations: Frank Eudy

Technically Frank tied the all-time record by getting nominated six times before being evicted. Only two other HGs have ever achieved this record: Amy Crews from season 3 and Sharon Obermueller from season 9.

Most Individuals with Five or More Wins: Shane Meaney, Frank Eudy and Ian Terry

Prior to this season there were only eight HGs in the history of the game to win five or more competitions in a single season. And the only time more than one person did it in the same year was season 9 with Ryan Quicksall and Crazy James Zinkand. But in season 14, three different HGs achieved this impressive feat as Ian, Shane and Frank all earned five or more competition wins.

Six or More Wins in a Single Season: Shane Meaney, Frank Eudy and Maybe Ian Terry

Prior to this season, only three HGs had ever won six or more competitions in a single season: Janelle Pierzina during All-Stars, Daniele Donato in season 8 and Rachel Reilly in season 13. This year two more HGs joined that elite group as Frank and Shane both won six competitions. And there's a chance another HG will since Ian could win a sixth competition if he wins the final HoH. This season could double the number of HGs with six or more wins.

Most Consecutive PoV Wins: Shane Meaney and Frank Eudy

In season 9, Crazy James Zinkand set the record by winning three Power of Veto competitions in a row. This season that record was tied not once but twice. First Shane did it, then Frank did as well.

The Three PoV Curse: Shane Meaney and Frank Eudy

This season Shane and Frank both won at least three Power of Veto competitions, joining an elite group of nine other HGs who have done this in a single season. And they also continue an impressive record as none of these people have ever won the game. The curse continues: If you win three or more PoV competitions, you will NOT win the game.

Worst Finish with Three HoH Wins/Five Total Wins: Frank Eudy

Including Frank and Ian from this season, 12 HGs have won at least three HoH competitions in a single season. And 11 of them finished in the top four. But Frank certainly set an impressive record by winning HoH three times, yet still getting evicted in 7th place. Frank also has the record for the worst finish out of anyone who has won five or more competitions in a single season (previously it was Crazy James Zinkand from season 9 who finished 6th with five wins).

Most HoH/PoV Wins in the Same Week: Four

In season 6, Rachel Plencner, Janelle Pierzina, and April Lewis all won the HoH and PoV in the same week. In season 14, that same feat happened four times as Shane, Frank and Danielle (twice) managed to win both the HoH and PoV in the same week. In addition, Danielle is the only player to ever do this twice.

POTENTIAL RECORD - Youngest Winner Ever: Ian Terry

This may or may not happen, but if Ian wins the game, he will set the record as the youngest winner ever, winning at just 21.5 years (the finale falls exactly on his half birthday). This would narrowly edge out season 1 winner Eddie McGee, who was 21 years, 7 months and 5 days old when he won.
