Hey all - Here's the 7/18 RECAP
Kara and Frank are the first official nominations of the season. Only, their coaches have a little something to say about that.
Boogie’s not so happy because Willie told him they were good. He says, “Lying in the Big Brother house? It happens. Here’s what you don’t want to do…lie to me.”
Too bad Boogie only looks like a grumpy, old man when he says this!
Dan tells Kara he’s going to try to work some Dan magic and save his strongest player but she’s a little worried because, after all, everyone knows Dan…
Boogie then strategizes with Frank and tells him to make good with Willie, only I don’t think it went quite the way Boogie thought it would go. Both say they wish they didn’t have the coaches because Willie knows Boogie’s coming after him and Frank doesn’t like how the coaches can influence other players. Frank says their best chance of getting further in the game is to work together. But will Willie go for it…
Meanwhile… the “Blonde Ambition Alliance” (coined by Boogie) is happily celebrating how easily they got their teams to go along with their “witch hunt” against Dan & Boogie because the girls convinced them all that the guys were gunning for them.
Only, “witch” kind of looks like it could fit Britany at this moment…
Boogie gets back on his high horse and says he doesn’t want to leave before either of Team Blonde and he wants to do whatever he can to make that happen…
One of the players who’s going to help him with that is Ian, the kid who’s been watching Boogie since he was 10. See, Ian’s got a super power – it’s called kicking yourself in the face.
After all, who needs a bully when you can kick the crap out of yourself??
Boogie watches Ian show off his special talent and asks America to kick HIM in the face.
Veto competition time and after listening to Frank tell us which two players he doesn’t want to play (Danielle and Shane), guess what? We see Danielle and Shane get picked! I love how that happens sometimes.
Willie picks Danielle
Kara picks Shane
Frank picks Wil (with one L)
And Jojo in all her Brooklyn glory is chosen to host the competition.
Kara & Frank each pull Shane aside separately and ask him to help them out but he’s noncommittal to both.
Boogie sits down with Britany in the HOH room and after feeling her out, finally gets to the point and asks if Janelle’s people are off limits. She says they’re not and he says if the replacement nominee is Jen, his other player, then that will speak volumes and draw a line in the sand.
Britany is obviously worried.
She says his threatening her doesn’t worry her or faze her and then throws down by saying (in a PI) that she thought he was supposed to be a good player. She tells Boogie she can’t control what her player does and Willie’s going to do what’s best for him.
Afterwards, Britany gives the low-down to Janelle and says her strategy is now to smear Boogie any time he does something shady or tries to threaten or intimidate her.
As soon as Britany walks away, Boogie approaches Janelle about taking Dan out because the rest of the teams have 3 players and can vote his out. Not surprisingly, Janelle runs to Dan and tells him what just happened.
Dan says one thing you never do is turn your back on a Renegade because you’re going to get stabbed. [Sigh, I miss the Renegades.]
It's Day 6 and all the coaches are on to Boogie!
Veto Comp time finally arrives and the players visit the Big Brother Laundromat to play “Loose Change”, a game where they have to find either a nickel, quarter, or dollar and then run back and throw the coin in the laundromat slot. First player to get $1.30 in exact change wins the POV!
After lots of slipping and sliding, the comp comes down to Shane, Frank, and Willie with Shane ultimately winning.
While her team is busy celebrating their victory, Britany “advises” Shane not to use the veto b/c then it would draw a line in the sand with Boogie and they don’t want to do that yet. Shane pushes back in a PI and says he needs to think about his own game.
Ultimately, though, he decides NOT to use the power of veto…
Look for Arielflies’ recap to see who was ultimately sent home after this first official eviction…
