8/30 BB14 Recap LIVE/Eviction Show: Whomp-a-Doodle; Whack that Mole
Julie: The raves are in and the fall-out is about to begin.
Week in Review:
*Frank wins HOH and nominates Dan and Danielle
*Dan holds his own funeral, but Danielle is the one who is buried
*Dan convinces Frank that they can work together
*Dan makes up with Danielle in private; no one is to know they are together except their new alliance, Frank and Jenn
*Jenn, POV winner, takes Dan off the block
*Frank replaces Dan on the block with Britney
Julie: The house is stunned in the wake of the biggest comeback in the game.
Britney: I’m shocked. I just attended Dan’s funeral last night and today a giant carrot put me on the block next to my best friend in the house.
Ian: I have a strong suspicion that Frank knows I’ve been playing both sides since the reset. This is bad.
Dan: People thought I was dead, but guess what…I’m back stronger than ever and you can’t stop me.
TOE TO TOE
The Ian, Frank confrontation begins immediately after the Veto meeting when Ian charges into the HOH room loaded for bear. Ian begins by saying he feels blindsided, and Frank tells him he knows he was playing all sides which Ian tries to deny saying he didn’t use the first veto. Frank comes back with, “That is because you thought I would send Britney home.” Ian’s splutters become louder, but not as loud as Frank ejecting him from the room.
Ian, “I will avenge this, for sure.”
Frank tries to enter the Storage Room when Ian snidely remarks that Frank had a tough decision with a couple of days to make it, unlike Ian who had a couple of minutes. Frank gets loud by the door and leaves it to go the kitchen yelling at Ian that Ian voted out Boogie then put Ashley on the block.
Frank, “I thought they were taking advantage of you because you were a kid. Turns out you were just being sneaky.”
Ian, “No, that’s not true. I’m not sneaky at all.”
As the voices get louder and louder, Dan, who is in the Arcade Room smiles then laughs. This couldn’t be going better for you, could it Dan. You now have the two sides of the house yelling at each other and you can choose your chips as they fall.
Frank’s final observation is to laugh at himself, “I’m in this freakin’ Carrot Top having a Toe to Toe.”
Once Frank’s back is turned, however, Ian has the last word by gesture – ala Jerry from Season 10 – by prancing three times at Frank’s back with an extended middle finger.
Jerry is referenced once again this episode…wait for it.
When Britney tracks down Dan for an explanation, he tells her to talk to the HOH. She reminds him that how he treats people will be reflected in Jury votes.
Britney treks up to the HOH and ends her session tearfully saying that she will fight. She will be good for them, will protect them (Frank and Jenn) now that her back is against the wall.
Shane: I am in the worst deal. I either have to vote my coach out from day one or my best friend.
Shane moans to Joe about his dilemma and Joe promises to follow his vote.
To a small group on the patio, Britney does her take on Dan’s funeral where he had nice words for everyone.
Oh…this is me crying…oh, it’s Dan’s funeral…oh…”I was passing out tissues for his funeral. I only wish it had been his funeral, friends.” Dab…dab…poor Dan….I am so sad.
“Please no one forget that this guy’s already won half a million dollars, but he’s willing to slit peoples’ throats to win it again. (At that statement, Danielle covered her face with a towel.)
Frank is pleased with this turn of vitriol as the target on Dan’s back is growing.
Britney, “Let’s be in alliance – death or dishonor.” Scowl, “Death for you.”
“Have some apple pie….made from arsenic.”
“Hey, Danielle, I’m sorry about last night. I knew that you wanted to be on my team and we would be friends forever.” Scowl, “You’re dead to me.”
Britney in DR: I know in my rational brain that Dan is just really good at this game.
“Sweet dreams Britney. Sweet dreams Dan.” Scowl, “Tomorrow your game is over.
Ian – The mood in the house is better but tenser than a couple of weeks ago.
Jenn – Taking Dan off the block was the most brutal decision I’ve made thus far in the house. I love Danielle to pieces. It was absolutely a game move on my plan.
Dan – That funeral I will someday regret, but it feels good to be alive in the house. I’ll never forget what Jenn did for me considering my birthday is coming up this Saturday. The big 29 and I got a present from Jenn so I’m very grateful for that.
Shane – Claims he cried at the funeral because the girls were crying.
THE BRIGADE (or Brogade or, as Enzo called it, The Bragade)
We are taken down memory lane of Britney’s eviction on season 12 where she was blindsided in fourth place by the secret alliance calling themselves, The Brigade.
The members were Enzo (the Meow Meow) Matt (the Brains) Lane (the Beast) and Hayden (the Animal). They stuck together until the final six when they took out Matt then Ragan then broke the news to a very shocked Britney who had been promised Final Three by Lane. They all keep in touch and Enzo says that Britney is now part of the Brigade.
They are all cheering her in season 14, but don’t understand the Quack Pack. It seems wimpy to them. Enzo says the Brigade worked because they had loyalty and a plan. The Quack Pack has no loyalty. At the end of the clip, they raise a glass to Britney.
Julie: Why did you change within a one hour conversation? (actually, 43 minutes in all)
Frank: Dan and Boogie and I were working together at one point and we thought he was the one who ratted us out about Britney going up; it turns out it was Ian. I kind of had my assumptions all along, once I found out that was true, I had to pull the trigger on trying to get Britney out.
Julie: How sincere are you about taking Dan to the end?
Frank: Right now I’m trying to build some trust with Dan. I’m not sure how I’m going to trust him, but the next few weeks will show if I can and then that will be sincere.
Julie: Where do you and Ian stand after your heated words?
Frank: I pretty much know he wants to get me out of this house. He’s going to feel a little lonely this week once Britney is gone, so I’m hoping maybe I can rope him in a little bit, just to see where his head is at. At the same time, I’m going to do everything I can to get him out this next week.
Danielle, “I have loved this whole summer and I would nothing better than to stay. Britney, I love you.”
Britney, “I love my family and hello to all the fans. To the houseguests, it’s been a real pleasure being here with every single one of you. To quote a very, very wise old man (Jerry reference regarding Dan) you’ll always be Judas to me.” The audience groans and as Julie whooshes out, “All right,” Britney says it was supposed to be a joke.
Dan votes to evict Britney
Jenn votes to evict Britney
Ian votes to evict Danielle
Shane votes to evict Britney (The audience moans an Ahhhh)
Joe votes to evict Britney
Britney is evicted with a 4-1. Hugs for Danielle and Ian, a cheek kiss for Dan and she is on the doorstep.
Britney tells Julie that she respects Dan’s game move, but since she is sitting on the front porch, she is not happy about it. Julie asks if he is pure genius or pure evil. Britney,“both.” He really, really is good at this game. He flipped the entire house in about an hour. She thinks that her allegiance to Ian was a pretty big downfall in the game.

THE HOH COMPETION
Soak Up the Sun
All evening long, those watching the show live have been able to tweet whether they want the first to fall in this endurance comp to receive a reward or a punishment. By a slight majority vote, Punishment wins. We won’t discover the punishment or the completion of the competition until the Sunday show.
The object of this endurance is to stand on an elevated small platform held up to rigging by a rope. The “planets” all revolve at varying speeds around the sun and get squirted with plasma blasts from the sun and whomped by a comet. The last person holding on wins the HOH key.
While the show is still airing, Joe falls off first and he will receive the punishment. Jenn is the second to fall, but to be fair; she was knocked off by a comet.
Next Thursday will be a DOUBLE EVICTION and this next week will be another struggle for power – stay tuned.
