I know I didn’t write a blog after last week’s eviction, but I have two very good reasons for that. One, I was still in a little bit of shock that Dan somehow managed to pull his huge move off. Second, I was lazy. I did try to make up for it with a vlog. Let’s move onto this week’s evictions. Yes, evictions. There were two again this week and for this season, the double eviction has been about the only exciting thing in the house. Let’s recap. Frank and Joe were on the block and Frank was expecting to stay unless he was backstabbed for the 4 millionth time or scumbagged for 643,256th time. BTW, scumbagged? Seriously? What kind of word is that? Between Frank and Willie this season, America was introduced to new words and sayings, but I digress. In the end only Jenn voted to keep Frank and he was sent packing. He was slightly shocked which is always fun for the viewers. I’ll never forget being in the live audience during Season 10 when Jessie was evicted. The look on his face was priceless.
After the eviction they went right into a HoH competition. There was a series a seven questions and the HGs got a point for each one they got right. The person with the most points after the seven questions would win. At the end, Dan Danielle and Jenn were all tied. They would write their answer for the tiebreaker question: How many minutes was Jodi in the house before being evicted? Dan was closest and became HoH. He had a brief moment before having to nominating two people. He decided on Joe and Ian. Joe knew he was going up and Dan’s reasoning for Ian going up was that Ian had yet to be on the block. I think it was also done to hide any alliance that Dan has with Ian outside of the Quack Pack.
They HGs then went back outside for the PoV competition which, since there were only six people left, everyone got to play in. They had to move a shark fin through a maze on a board and then hit their button. Ian and his analytical mind won in convincing fashion and he took himself off the block right after the competition. This left Dan having to name a replacement nominee. In a surprise move, he nominated Danielle. Well, at least she seemed surprised and I was surprised, so I say it was a surprising move. Here’s where, at least to me, the show got interesting. Because CBS is stupid and the President’s speech ran long, I missed what happened next. Thanks to my great investigative skills though, I found out what happen. Joe was sent to the Jury House and Danielle is still c̶l̶i̶n̶g̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶S̶h̶a̶n̶e̶ in the game.
I don’t know what the next HoH competition was, but Ian won. What’s he going to do next? Who will he nominate? He’s going to have to put at least one member of the Quack pack up on the block along with Jenn. I’m assuming she will be one of the nominees since she’s not in his alliance. Everyone gets to play for veto, so it’s better to have Jenn up so if she wins PoV she wouldn’t be able to save two people. If she doesn’t win it, you have to imagine that she will go home unless a couple of people would rather bring her to the final three and then final two.
Dan is probably the only one who has been giving serious thought as to who he would want to face in the final two. Ian might have given it some thought, but not like Dan has. If the rest of them are not thinking about it, they will end up in the jury house because even if it’s not your decision, you need to be able to convince someone that it’s in their best interest to bring you along.
Here’s this week’s odds based on the game through last night’s episode.
I don’t think Jenn can win the whole thing, but I do think she could make it to the final two. Ian and Dan are playing the best games right now and are in complete control.
