Big Brother 7/13/2014

I have mixed feelings about the plan to back door Devin. On the one hand, I can't stand him. On the other hand, he introduces a lot of drama and controversy in the game, and is therefore has massive entertainment value.

But in the end, I think he needs to leave... He just is not playing smart.

It was funny to watch Donny play innocent with Nicole. "Did you tell me not to tell anyone?"

Watching Caleb flirt with Amber, and sell her on his hero sacrifice was a little painful for me to watch ;-)

I love that Team America is going to start the rumor about Zach being Amanda' cousin. The edited videos comparing the two of them was priceless!

Good season so far.

I may have missed something during the Team America mission instructions. Could they have come up with a rumor about one of Team America. Seems it would be easier to spread that rumor if one of them was in on it.

In fact Frankie could have started the Ariana Grande rumor, and it would have been true!

I find with BB that entertainment value always finds itself. I think there will be plenty going forward. So yeah, I'm all for Devin to leave. Under normal rules, I normally would rather take the risk and put Devin up on the block right now, but I agree, that the only way is to back door him and not give him two chances to go off the block.

success of the plan hinges on who wins the veto, and how the veto is played. that's why it's risky, and important to have a well thought plan b, just in case.

Caleb is quickly becoming one of my least favorite contestants on the show. He is letting his 2nd head play the game for him and quite honestly looks like a total dumb ass the way he is falling over for Amber. She is not into you dude, don't continue to put yourself out there, of course with a crush comes blinders and he is having a hell of a hard time seeing/thinking straight when it comes to her. I really wish one of the guys would pull him aside and tell him he needs to get his emotions in check. Maybe Devin can snuggle up tight with him and get his mind back in the game.

Some of these players are about as interesting as a rock. I did like that Frankie got grilled about his sister and you know she (what ever her name is) knew that she was famous. Without some of the drama caused early by Devin I don't know if I would have any clue where these peoples loyalties stood.

Donny started playing the game and quickly gets a target, by one of his "allies" too it was quite funny.

I'm fine with him going, but also part of me wants him to stay for entertainment value. I'm ok with Caleb going too.

I think Devin would be a good person to take to the final 2. Who would vote for him?

I thought (putting it in spoilers since I don't remember if it aired in yesterday's episode or I read it in the spoilers thread)

Spoiler:

they said Caleb was the plan B?

I'm really enjoying the season so far. Devin has proven to be ridiculously entertaining. My wife and I are convinced that the producers purposely choose some players that fail the psychological profile test.

Donny is more savvy then the 'aw shucks' routine indicates, plus he is good in comps. Think he actually needs to downplay the gameplay a bit its too early to emerge.

I thought it was pretty funny how Derrick said Caleb would fall on the sword for Amber and true to his plan Caleb just had to be led a little and followed along just as planned.

Since they changed the rules after the awesome "Five Finger Plan" was played a few years ago, Devin could still get to play for Veto. What would be awesome is if his name got drawn and he wins POV and leaves the noms the same. And then wins HoH next week. That would be so entertaining on many levels.

Did he say she had a number one song? I don't know who she is, although the name is vaguely familiar, but I thought someone said she really wasn't all that big a star? So he thinks this will work against him because she has money? Why would anyone care?

When he started telling his partner where to put the puzzle pieces, I thought he should just worry about getting them to her and let her go, but he really did know what he was doing. All right, Donnie. It was stupid to tell the girls what Not-Jordan told him, though. I'm not sure he's as smart as he thinks he is.

Funny when they have one of those HoH comps that are 99% luck--and then someone who would never purposely win HoH is stuck with it.

What is the 6 finger plan? I figured the only problem is if he's picked to play for the veto--which you don't have that great a chance at when there are this many in the house--and he wins it.

There didn't used to be any chance involved. The PoV players used to be the HoH, the nominees, and one selected by each of those (hence six). So if you nominated two allies (and had three allies left to pick), you completely controlled PoV.

Here's a video that she did with Frankie (I think it's him anyway), it was a few years ago with her doing some singing and other impressions.

Frankie's Sister



This is her most recent number one song. (At least I believe it went #1)

Ariana Grande - Problem

I think Derrick is quickly becoming the puppetmaster. Dan would be proud.

Lets not crown Derrick yet, he's just not as stupid as most of the rest.

Nicole crying like she just buried Donny...come on girl!

Thanks. She has a pretty good voice. I like Frankie better with dark hair.

There's also her previous single "The Way" from last year... A Top 10 Billboard single (and many have compared this single to Mariah Carey vocals).

Almost any teenager and young adult (early 20s) will know Ariana Grande... She has an acting presence on Disney Channel, and is on heavy rotation on the radio these days...

What's more interesting for me is that my daughter tells me that Frankie is a bit of a YouTube celebrity in his own right, and that she (my daughter) was shocked that no one in the house recognized him...

I have to say this has been the most entertaining BB in a while. Last few seasons I have bailed after the first couple of weeks but for some reason I am 100% hooked this year.

I think this song really shows off her vocals.

I like it. A good reminder that there's money out there if you want to go get it.

I have to agree. Right now he and Nicole are my favorite players. I think if Derrick plays it smart, he could win. I don't think he's in Dan's league yet, but then again, to me, there is Dr. Will and Dan in that league and nobody else.

My daughter tells me that they are cancelling her show (or she's leaving it, I forget) on Disney, so she can pay more attention to her singing career.

So far, I think it's better than last season, but not as good as the coach season (2 years ago?), with Dan.

LOL, I was thinking the same thing. Considering I only use YouTube when I need to (like learning how to use something, or researching a product or a trip), I really don't "get" this YouTube celebrity thing. Of course I'm probably 30 years old than the users who probably "get" it.

Dan's first season was also awesome, IMHO.

I think Victoria knows who Frankie is. Her questions were to on the nose about his sister, and she strikes me as someone who might know who his sister is and even who he is.
