He's playing the game as it was meant to be played...love it!
I don't think how a person acts in the Big Brother house necessarily reflects how they act outside the house. People who are going to be scarred for life for things Dan did to them in the house are definitely taking the game too seriously.
Play on, Playa :D
Love it - since the funeral. Thought some of his strategies in the first half weren't that smart (throwing challenges, etc.).
For those who say Frank was stupid (or got misted), you've got to remember Frank was alone (Jenn had just joined him) so he really had no choice - He WANTED to believe Dan because that is the only choice he had at the time. Where Frank messed up was letting Boogie talk him out of backdooring Dan earlier AND then letting the notion that he was considering it get out. This seemed to awaken the beast (DAN)!!
Love it! He was the first coach down to 1 player, Dani. In the first weeks there were strategies to get Dani out and lose him as a coach. He has managed to almost make it to the end...the underdog team...is close to making it to the end...how unbelievable!!! His game play has allowed that...he has taken the hit for it. He is the master this season...no denying!!!
Big Brother is all about, social, physical, deception, manipulation...he has done it all!! Good job Dan Gheesling!!!
First off, you can only take advantage of someone who lets themselves be taken advantage of.
Second, I like the way Dan is playing because he may be lying to people, using them, & "misting" them, but he doesn't mock them, demean them, or make fun of them behind their backs. This is the difference between him & people like Boogie or Dr Will, which is why I have no respect for either one of them. Evel Dick, on the other hand, did it right to their faces to knock them off their high horses & keep them from thinking straight. I have no problem with that.
Dan continues to be a nice likable guy. He's just a nice likable guy with a goal that he keeps his eyes on. He knows this is a game & plans to win. He has no delusions about loyalties that change on a weekly, daily or hourly basis. These people aren't your friends. They are the competition. Afterwards some of them may become your friends, but during the game, no.
I don't think he'd take any hard feelings with him if he left. He knows that what people do is part of the game, not personal treatment. Providing personal attacks aren't involved.
