    I'm so sick of people saying that Will had such a big target on his back all season. The biggest target from the beginning is the S6 target. Everyone in that house knew they had to get rid of S6 people before Will because they had numbers. There are two main reasons Will is still here. The run of HOH's by S6 and the decision of S6 people (without Will's influence) to remove floaters. I agree that Will has made the most of the situation but had there not been 4 S6's from the start, he would be gone by now. He is obviously the best player in that house but is that really saying anything?

    That is really flawed logic. Sure its POSSIBLE that Mari would use the veto to save Danielle, but its GARUNTEED that Danielle would use the veto on herself. You eliminate Danielle first, period.

    Not much considering the jury gets sequestered and doesn't get to see all the backstabing and lying that was going on behind their back. Since they don't get to see any of this until after they vote for the final two, they aren't really "reaping what they sow".

    Given this fact, if Janelle gets evicted, I hope James is the HOH to do it. If someone else does his dirty work for him then Janelle might never know for sure that James betrayed the S6 alliance, and if James makes it to the final two he might get her vote. Also, I would love to see the week of Janelle yelling at James if he nominates her...she'll tear him a new one.

    But Will did start out with a target on his back since he was the only person in the house to ever win the game. It's a testament to his skill as a player that he managed to parlay that target first to Allison and then to the s6 alliance. They both ended up with *bigger* targets, but that's in large part because they came on so strongly with the s6 alliance after week one

    Will is the greatest player ever. And that is not saying much. Still entertaining though. :p

    I can't believe Janelle is playing the game like this. I hope she has a master plan!

    Exactly - Will controls Janelle (who controls Howie). It's "win win for Chill Town," once again. :up:

    Admittedly, Danielle is not playing the competitively in the competitions, but c'mon, she's playing the game strategically and that's much more important. She's got a group of people who are committed to keeping her in the game, hence the throwing of the competitions. That's a lot better than Janelle.

    Janelle may have won a bunch of the competitions, but the only person in the house who wants to keep her is Howie. In fact, her winning is one of the biggest reasons that people consider her a threat. In the bigger picture, Danielle is playing a lot better than Janelle.

    Well... that depends. What if Marcellus and Danielle and Erika are the only people that you want to nominate. If you take out Danielle and Marcellus wins, then he could always use it to save Danielle.... then you'd be forced to nominate someone else. On the other hand, if you take out Marcellus and Danielle wins, she takes herself off and you could always put Marcellus up. So there is some logic there.

    She' got a group of people who are committed to keeping her in the game?...Well right now she does! It's her peak time, Janelle had the same thing early. A group of people who are committed to keeping etc...Season 6 alliance 4 strong running the house 4 weeks in a row until James jumped ship and Kaysar went down AGAINx3 Now her and Howie are on the ropes.Like I said before Dani isn't half the player Janelle is! Janelle wins things herself and gets the job done! Has anybody even won more BB Competitions then Janelle has? Danielle has been handed everything and let's not forget her HUGE blunder week 1 that almost cost her the game.

    It's flawed in that it presupposes something that I'm not sure would happen (i.e., that Marc would save Danielle), but still contains a certain amount of logic. The post I had been responding to made it sound like Will's claim made no sense because if he had eliminated Danielle, the problem would have been solved. That's a greater flaw in logic because it discounts the possibility that someone like Marc would take here off. Either way, Will's logic seemed to have worked to deflect attention from himself, no doubt because James could only come up with the logically sound but wholly unbelievable excuse that he was confused and thought Erica was the one that Janelle wanted to leave (not to mention his bad acting job). At least Will's excuse had some semblance of logic, flawed as it might have been.

    Did anyone else feel like they were watching a rerun of when Janelle was caught in her lie by Howie. This time around though, it was James that seemed to be caught lying badly that he thought it was Erika that needed to be taken out.

    There are times though, that winning HOH, isn't the right thing to do.

    That is true for some people but not for others. Janelle would have been on the block every week that a S6'er didn't win HOH. I find it funny that originally the houseguests thought it was unfair that S6 got 4 people in the house. That may have let them stay in the house past the first few weeks but that fact was eventually gonna hurt them more than help. James was smart to distance himself from them at the best time. My problem with him is that in the diary room, he tries to lie to the viewers on why he does things.

    Anyone have any idea how the show is going to work tonight with the Coup thing? I was just thinking usually both evicted HGs have to pack their bags but if the winner of the Coup decides to send someone else home that wasn't on the block, how is that going to work? This new power really confuses me.

    I'm sure the producers will find a way to get the evicted HG their belongings...

    Chenbot did say that the new vote would take place "immediately" correct?

    It's pretty unclear, honestly.

    We know what the power is, we know that only the winner will found he/she won and what he/she won tonight, we know he/she can use the power once in the next 3 weeks.

    We don't know the timing of when it is used, though. Does winner use it prior to votes? After votes? THe actual execution of the power is where it gets fuzzy, for me.

    The way I remember it was that Julie said that before eviction (or was it before the initial vote, assuming today is a live vote for TV) the power holder would be revealed and learn what the power was.

    At that point the power holder could decide to replace either person on the block with anyone (including HOH?). Or keep the power to use in a subsequent week. (in which case the element of suprise is gone)

    Then - immediately, on live TV, without a chance to confer with others - the HGs would have to vote for one of the two people on the 'new' block.
