Monday Morning before the PoV Ceremony
Good morning, BB Lovers! It's a BIG day in the BB14 house! PoV Ceremony Day! We thought it was going to be a non-use, but late last night, after hours of effort from Janelle, Wil and Ashley, and the blessing and approval of Britney, Shane threw Team Janelle a Hail Mary pass. He plans on saving Ashley today in the PoV Ceremony and putting Frank up as the ReNom.
What does this mean? Well, for starters, we're very likely going to have a grand display of daytime fireworks after the PoV Ceremony today.. starring Boogie and Frank. Kaboom!
All Joe really needs to do this morning is keep his mouth shut and continue to appear dejected. If Joe cannot do this, and Shane, Britney, Frank or Boogie get spooked, it could all go away and be Joe's ticket home.
If you need catching up on last night, please have a look at these 2 previous posts:
As I write, it's 8:15am in the BB house, and the HGs are all still sleeping for the moment, so indulge me... All the HGs and coaches think that this coming Thursday will be an Endurance Comp.. YAY! Janelle also thinks it'll be the end of the Coaches twist..
Here's my little fantasy scenario for getting the coaches into the game...
Julie: The coaches have declared their intent and desire to become players, but only 2 will make the cut. The coaches will now take their places alongside the house guests in the Head of Household Endurance Competition. The last 2 remaining coaches in the endurance competition will be allowed to enter the game as players and compete for the 500,000 dollars. Watch it all happen tonight on the Big Brother Live Feeds..
Something like that.. I haven't worked out what would happen to the other 2 coaches. Maybe stay coaching, or leave the house. Who knows.. maybe they'll all get to enter, and that'll make room for a double eviction night or 2 down the line.
Julie: Coaches, you've declared your desire to get into the game, but you're going to have to earn your spots. In order for all of you to enter as players, 1 of you will have to win the endurance comp.
That would set up a battle royale between the coaches and all the players. The most epic Endurance Comp EVER! ♫Looooveeee!! oh em geee.. Make it Thursday already!! There is nothing better than a great endurance comp on the live feeds. :))) If you haven't gotten the 3 day free trial yet, click here to take care of that.
With all the old school players in the house, and the hang on til I'm bloody attitude of the newbies, my BB endurance comp loving heart goes pitter patter every time I think about this one. :)
OK.. 8:40am and they're still sleeping. Methinks BB wants them to have enough energy to do battle today after the PoV Ceremony. I love this game! I'll start updating the morning in this post.. as soon as they're up and coherent...
9:12am BBT Fishies!! Wakey, Wakey, houseguests! It's time to get up and entertain us on the live feeds! Joe, I have 4 words for you - keep your mouth shut. Boogie, Frank... I've always wondered what a nuclear explosion might look like inside the BB house, and I have a feeling you might just show us that today after the PoV Ceremony.. Oooh lordy, lordy! It's gonna be a heck of a Monday!
9:22am BBT And they're up!
Frank: Hello, Hello..
BB: Frank, please exchange your microphone with one in the storage room.
Frank: On my way, boss.
Frank: What time did you go to bed?
Wil: I don't know.. but I know it was late..
Frank: I had a weird dream about Gary Busey.. He was on a reality show and he was flipping houses in my home town.
Boogie: That is weird.
Grumbling amongst them men about Britney not ever touching a dish the whole time she's been in the house.
Boogie: Can you even imagine if she ever has a baby? She has no comprehension of the amount of bottles and clothes and diapers..
Frank: Mike slept in today..
Boogie: Yeah, I was having a dream that I was on the US Olympic soccer team, and we were playing the Russians..
Frank: Dream are like pictures, Mike. If nobody's havin' sex, and I'm not in em, I don't wanna hear about em. (it's a movie reference)
9:30am Joe enters..
Wil: Hey, Joe..
Frank: Hey, Joe.. ♫Lay down your head..
Joe: Oh I love getting about 45 minutes of sleep a night.
Talk turns to Boogie's lactose intolerance. He can have milk, but it makes him really, really gassy.
BB: Frank, please exchange your microphone with one in the Storage Room.
Frank: Wow. I'm your boy this morning.
Joe has a seat at the counter. So far, he's doing a good job keeping up the sad face.
Boogie: Know what I'll do? I'll wait til the Veto box closes, then I'll hand this to Brit and say, here, wash your shit. No offense, Joe.
Joe: Can you imagine her husband's life??
Boogie: And she wants to have a baby.
BB: Mike, please exchange your microphone with one in the Storage Room.
**teehee.. BB wants to make sure Frank and Boogie are well mic'd up before the fireworks begin.
Frank: It's almost big doodie time. So you didn't get much sleep again, Joe?
Joe: No.. I think I played pool with myself most of the night..
Joe, Boogie, Wil, Frank
Backyard - Couch
Joe: I don't need anymore sun.. I'll get plenty of that in the jury house..
Boogie: You could take up a new sport - AJ.. avoiding JoJo..
Wil: ya know???
Mocking JoJo all around..
Wil: The best was when she honestly thought she traded a pack of cigarettes for a vote... No offense, Joe.
Boogie: It was a great bait and switch.. Cuz Joe got to look like a mensch..
Talk in the backyard moves from JoJo mocking to making the perfect ice coffee.. They all prefer Dunkin Donuts to Starbucks.
Frank: That's one thing I haven't been able to find in Naples is a good donut shop.
Talk turns to Graceland.. Joe's dad did Elvis impersonations.. He had a show.
Joe: We used to go through his house.. It was the most gaudy looking thing you've ever seen.
Boogie: Is it super big?
Joe: From the front, it reminds me of the White House. And tons of acreage.. And when I went, they still had all his cars there.
Frank gives a shout out to a used car lot near by.. Good Fellas Auto Sales.. Talk turns to used car sales in general, and how they must be on the rise with the economy as it is..
Boogie, Wil, Frank, Joe
Talk in the backyard has turned to Boogie's cars.. Mercedes, BMW.. cars that exist in my fantasy life.
Boogie: A few years ago, I bought my dream car, which was a convertible Bentley... But with the kid, it just wasn't practical.. It was also in an accident, but i found a dumb rapper kid to buy it..
Car chatter continues.. lalala... guy talk.. whatevs..
The guys are up and talking about traffic tickets in the backyard, while the rest of the house snoozes..
So far, so good for Joe though, on avoiding looking happy about what's to come..
Wil: I was a listed fugitive at the age of 16.. They never wrote down that I came to court.. But they knew I went to traffic school. The warrant wasn't even out for an hour, but they come to arrest a 16 year old, when there are rapists and murderers in the world.. Had I not been in the Florida Keys with the rest of the fugitives of the world, I would have been in jail all weekend.. for nothing.
Boogie: Yeah.. You don't wanna get arrested on a weekend.
Joe one ups Wil's story.. of course.
10:10am On feed 1, Shane wake up and drops trow for us. Thanks, Shane.
Feed 3 and 4
Joe and Wil
Joe's so in check, he's not even whispering about anything to Wil when they're alone in the kitchen. Good boy.. So far.. Joe goes to the restroom, while Wil fixes himself some eggs for breakfast.
Britney and Shane
Brit: Are you sure it's the best decision?
Shane is firm..
Brit: Jenn and Ian will still come after you. I asked Ian yesterday, and he was so weird about it. I asked him are we still good? Are you guys not gonna put up Shane next week? And he said, "That's not in the foreseeable options.": I'm like, what do you mean foreseeable options? What I'd like to hear is no.
Shane: The reason why I wanna get rid of Frank.. I like Frank, but I don't trust Boogie. At all. The risk I'm taking is if Ian wins HoH. I gotta take a risk somewhere.
Brit: What about Joe? Did you talk to him last night?
Shane: I just told him to play it cool.
Brit: Did he thank you?
Shane: Yeah, he's like, I owe you my life.. Something like that. Who knows if you can trust him.
Shane: I know.. because Joe is back and forth all the time.. But they're gonna be trashing Joe this week.
Brit: oh, I know. I just don't wanna tell you taht I 100% know it's the best move.
Shane: I'm aware of that.. I think percentage wise, it's the best move.
Brit: And the house is gonna be uncomfortable and terrible.
Shane: oh well.
Brit: What'd Danielle say?
Shane: She's on board 100%.
Brit: They're gonna be on her for a vote, but in a good way..
Shane: Man.. That pisses me off about Ian.. Little Faggot! I'm sorry. I shouldn't say that.
Brit: Do not say that word.
**really, Shane? really? come on, now. you're better than that.
Shane; I'm sorry. Going against his word first week.. I haven't even done anything yet and they're still sayin' I'm untrustworthy.. That's why I'm making this decision. I don't trust their coach. I'm willing to feel the burn, feel the pain, whatever..
Brit: I just don't want you to feel the brunt when you're doing the dirty work, and Wil's down there being BFFs with Frank.
Shane: I know..
Brit: It just feels like we're doin' Janelle's team's dirty work.
Shane: We did the dirty work week 1, and we're doing it week 3.. It just comes down to not trusting Boogie.
Brit: I'm just scared crapless.
Shane: Of Boogie?
Brit: Of the whole thing. According to Frank and Boogie, you guys had a deal. An iron clad 100% deal..
Shane: I'll just say, I didn't trust it.. Not when you've got players like Ian saying he's gonna put me up next week.
Brit: He didn't say he was going to.. He said not in the foreseeable future..
Shane: I want 100%. Not foreseeings.. I know you're just lookin' out for me, and you're looking out for yourself.
Brit: The 2 go hand in hand.. You're th eone who's gonna have to bear the brunt.. You're doing a favor for everyone else, and you're the only one who's gonna take the punishment..
Shane: I kept my word;. I didn't nominate him. He had a chance to play PoV. He didn't win. And I think if Boogie had a chance to get rid of me next week, he would. And I don't like that Frank's already bragging about winning the money...
Brit: I just know they're gonna have a smear campaign against you.
Shane: I realize that.. It's putting you in a bad spot too, but it's only for 3 days..
Brit: Not really.. I don't control you. I just think you'r ein major hot water if Ian wins HoH.
Shane: But I would've been regardless. My mind's not made up, but I'm leaning towards one side.. and I've got to do the best for me and you. Do you think Ian will be frazzled enough? Ashley's not gonna win anything.. Joe's not gonna win.
Brit: SO you really only have Danielle and Wil playing.. and it depends what type of competition it is.. Hopefully just like Janelle's players.. When Frank's tearing you to pieces.. Hopefully Janelle's players stick bny you to some extent. Do you believe they will?
Shane: I do. To some extent. I think they wanna get Frank out as much as I do. It'd be stupid not to get rid of him right now. We know we got Ashley's vote.. and Danielle's too. And Dan's on board. And even though Frank'sa replacement nominee.. He doesn't know he's going home. I could feed him a line..
Brit: You could say, i was too worried about you guys flipping votes. Boogie knows I pulled him up here yesterday.. I can say I talked to Ian, and he gave me a shady answer.. and I needed to secure the votes. And I know that Ian and Jenn will vote for you to stay. 100%. I don't know that they will vote for Ashley to stay. nd you can say, i talked to Danielle.. Danielle told me she would vote for you to stay..
Shane: mmm.. so it's on her hands, Not mine.. Perfect.
Brit: Just say, I had to secure the votes. I didn't have a choice.
Shane: And I'll just be like, talk to Danielle. She's the swing. And she'll be like, yeah, you got my vote. Cuz Frank thinks she owes him something..
Brit: This is gonna be freaking scary.I'm surprised Janelle's not up here yet..
Timecheck - 10:45am
After brief fishies.. Joe and Britney are in the backyard having a private moment. Joe is pledging allegiance to the flag of Shane.
Joe: I talked to Shane, and he has my utmost loyalty.. If it's up to me, he will be in the final 2. My utmost loyalty.
Brit: Ok. They're gonna after Shane like nobody's business.
Joe: I know... but if we have the numbers.
10:48am - Britney heads inside to chat with Janelle at the dining table.. Just touching base.. very quietly.
Brit: This is gonna be good for you and I.
Janelle: Really good!
Outside, Boogie and Joe are talking about Joe's inability to sleep in the Have Not Room..
Shane and Frank
Shane: If we keep the nominations the same, we're afraid you're gonna get the votes to get Ashley out..
Frank: I'd much rather work with you than Joe.. he told me in there, Good luck, I know I'm goin' home..
Shane: He knows he's goin'.
Frank: And you know Ian's gonna vote to keep Ash.. Boogie and I tend to have those conversations when it gets a little bit closer. We don't wanna reveal too much to him, cuz he's just a kid.
Danielle knocks. Shane asks for a minute.
Shane: I may have to put one person from your team up.. just to secure the votes. Joe's goin' home this week, no matter who goes up.
Frank: You know you got mine..
Shane: And Danielle's the 3rd vote, so that's a guarantee.
Frank: And because of Ian's little crush on Ashley.. I'm workin' with you going forward..
Shane: You have their vote, and I.. I think I can trust Boogie, but when it comes down to it, next 2 -3 weeks.. I just want to let you know where my head's at and I'm jus tinterested in securing the votes.
Frank: I'm still on board with you and Danielle going down the road.. I trust more that you 2 can win comps than Jenn and Ian.. I gave Joe the chance to give me the truth the other day.. I'm done with him.
Shane: I trust Danielle, but I don't know if I trust Dan..
Frank: I do.. I think she might listen to us though, in certain times, over Dan.. I do like that we've kept this quiet a littl ebit.. Cuz it could possibly hurt Jenn and Ian's votes down the road.. if thy knew we were working together.
Shane: I was up late, but it wasn't much game talk.. Ian's the only thing that flustered me.
Frank: I think his main this.. his i don't know part is that he hasn't talked to Boogie about it yet.
Shane: Cuz he hasn't been playing his own game.. He's playing Boogie's..
Frank: Ill have a little sit down with him.. tell him we have to have your back for the next week. I was worried last night.. Britney came outside.. and she was like, I just know that Janelle is gonna be going after all the votes.. and I was anticipating them asking me for votes, and never once did votes come up..
Time check - 11am
Brit: Hey, Shane, I definitely wanna talk to you before the ceremony, and it's about to start.
Brit: (to Frank) I talked to Ian yesterday and he made me very nervous.
**Either they're prepping Frank for waht's about to come, or they're wavering..
Brit: I friiking am worried about securing the votes. You guys could pick up..
Frank: I trusted Danielle goin' our way, but that's the thing, it puts all the power in her hands. Me and Boogie talked to Jenn last night before bed, and she's 100% on board with voting out Joe. ANd Ian's got such a crush on Ashley, he's not gonna vote her out. He knows that if he goes against the group, he's just gonna put a monster target on his back.. like the first week.
Shane: I trust you.. I just don't trust Janelle's team.. I'm afraid they're gonna get rid of Ashley.
Frank: I trust Jenn's vote 100%. Ian, i trust him 98%.
Brit: I think Joe's gonna go home, but I'm worried about securing the vote.
Frank: I think Janelle looks at me like a burnt bridge.. She wont try with me til Thursday.. That's the way I am.. I will tell you the conversation,a nd if it had to do with game, I'll tell you..
Meanwhile, in the bathroom, Janelle is having a confab with Ashley and Danielle.
Danielle: This is making me nervous...
Janelle: Dan's not gonna tell Boogie, is he?
Danielle: Hell no! Dan doesn't tell him anything.
Frank: I swear on my dear Nana's life that Wil and I have not had a conversation about final 2. I like Wil. He's a nice kid. But I don't wanna sit bext to him at the final 2. He's too well liked.
Frank: I feel like both of em are pretty defeated..
Brit: If he's telling you you're safe.. Everybody can't be safe.
Shane: We want Joe gone. He's a liar. He's a snitch. We just need to secure the votes. I think it's more paranoia than anything..
Frank: I know you guys are in a tight spot too.. Just like last week.. You guys not putting me on the block, Mike and our players are gonna roll with you 100%.
Shane: Ian's the thing..
Frank: I trust it's gonna be a 4-1.. but even if Ian does do the wrong thing, it'sll be a 3-2.
Brit: I know.. but 4 days is a long time. After this meeting.. HoH is gonna be a ghost town.. No oine needs him anymore.. They're gonna be downstairs spreading lies.. It's a long time to trust that people aren't going to change their votes.. Shane has to do whatever Shane wants to do.. I'm just saying from my perspective..
Frank: I will say, the only negative possible recourse of putting up a Jenn or an Ian.. they might take it the wrong way.
**no probs. they'll put you up.
Brit: This game is all about risk.
Shane: It would be different if JoJo were here.. but we have no votes.
Brit: We feel secrure with Danielle's vote, cuz she'll at least tell us how she's gonna vote. But we don't want either team to have 3 votes. I told Boogie this last night, and he was like, don't worry about the votes...
Time check - 11:15
Frank: As far as I know, Mike wants to get rid of Joe..
Brit: I'll let you guys talk.
Frank: No, I know you wanna talk..
Frank leaves the room, and Shane and Britney speak in hushed tones..
Brit: They're gonna be pissed! But as long as they know it's about securing the votes.
Shane: I think he knows he might be going up.. You can't separate from me today. As soon as it's over, Boogie's gonna be on me.
11:19am BBT - Trivia!! The PoV Ceremony begins!
