The PoV Players are..
The PoV Players have been chosen!
Playing for the PoV are:
- Frank - HoH
- Dan - Nom
- Danielle - Nom
As the feeds come back, we hear Dan say, "We got the draw we wanted."
Frank: I asked what time, and they wont say.. only "today."
Joe: On the sidelines..
Frank: I had to pick Ian to host, cuz I can't let him think I have a grudge aganst him.
Joe: I just wanted to compete.
Frank: It sucks when you're the only name not drawn.. And Ian can't play it..
Dan and Danielle
F 1 and 2
Danielle; He threatened him?
Dan: No, he said, "I just don't know if Frank's gonna threaten me," and I said, "how's he gonna threaten you if we have all the votes?"
Danielle: If he puts up me and Shane..
Dan: I think Jenn.
Dani: But what would Ian do?
Frank What does l'chaim mean?
Shane: Something to life.
Jenn: Here's to Life.
Brit: Like viva la vida.
Jenn: I live in Bensonhurst.
Brit: I never needed to know anything about Judaism til I moved to new york..
Shane's reading the manishevitz box..
Dan and Danielle are nervousing in the living room.. Joe' too.. a the kitchen counter. Ian's stimming at the dining table.. LChaim chatter continues.. and moves on to Jews in general..
Frank: I asked him, "is it gonna be 2 hours or 5 hours," and he was like, "I don't know what time it's gonna be. Just today."
**Thanks for trying, Frank.
Shane, Jenn and Danielle are pre-morning nap chatty in the boom boom room..
Dan is solo and bible reading in Have Nots..
BB asks Shane to change his microphone, and Danielle and Jenn do a tiny bit of whispering..
Danielle: I think it's an endurance comp thursday..
11:05am - Brit's in the kitchen fixing something. She tells Joe, "Jenn did say she was gonna lay back down."
Joe: So what do you think it's gonna be?
Brit: I think it's anybody's guess. I have no idea. I'm just nervous as hell. I know you aretoo.
Joe: It just sucks not being able to control your destny.
Brit: It sucks for me knowing I could go on the block.
Joe: Well, hopefully they'll keep it the same. The only vote I think you might not have would be Jenn's.
Brit: What about Shane?
Joe: I can't imagine that.
Brti: We'll see what happens.
Joe: I wanna talk to ian.. ask him not to use it.
Brit: I don't think Ian's gonna use it. There's no way. I think that's a pretty safe bet.
Joe: I'm gonna be the only peanut gallery.
Brit: Isn't that crazy? The lone peanut.
Joe: Frank said he picked Ian to host, so that he woudn't.. cuz he doesn't want him to use it either. No offense to anybody, I just don't want it used. I have the perfect word for you.. if it's spelling.
Brit: That is a good word.
Joe: `19 letters... and easy to spell.. 1st time Ian wore the shirt, it's been in my head ever since. And then I had another easy word: Tenderloin.
Brit: I think that if anybody except for Dan wins it, Dan's gone. I predict.
Joe: I think so too.. And after Dana nd Ian got in that little tiff yesterday.. Ian would definitely vote for you, i think. Is it too much to ask for things to remain the same?
Brit: You're tellin' me. I'm stressed out.
Joe: Yeah, those are great words, if you run into em. I wont say em to anyone else.
--Timecheck - 11:14am
Brit: I think it'll be How bad do you want it..That'll suck..
Joe: You know Dan'll do anything.. Frank wont cut his hair.. Jenn would dye hers.. I would've done anything except lose the money..
Brit: Would you have taken any of the prizes? One's a phone call home.
Joe: I would've til Frank said I'd be going up.
Dan: What's up guys.. Have you heard any construction?
Joe: Not alot of drilling... some commotion.. whatever it is, it's not a major set-up.
Dan returns to the Have Not Room... Brit and Joe remain in the kitchen area..
Brit: Ian, the toast is ready!
Britney heads up to HoH.. To talk to Frank or get away from Joe? I'm guessing a bit of both.
Frank: What's up?
Brit: Nothing.. I just didn't get to talk to you earlier. Are you doing your beauty rituals in there?
Frank: Just ready to get this comp said n done, so we know what we're workin' with.
Brit: Me too. I'm glad I got picked. I'm afraid though that it's gonna be the who wants it more veto.. just the set up is really light..
Frank: You gonna dye your hair pink?
Brit: I guess. Gonna have to. Not much choice at this point.
Brit: I'm stressin..
Frank: One thing I kept tellin' Ian was all we have to do is win the 1st 2 HoHs.. (** frank's on the spin cycle. i've already transcribed this once today) I do trust ya, but you guys have been pretty tight with Dan and Danielle for some time.
Brit: I've already resigned mytselfg that Dan's probably going this week. he played a good game, but he kinda made his bed. I eel like he's already one foot out the door.. But.. the only thing I worry about is that if Dan wins the veto, I'm worried that i go on the block or Shane goes on the block.. and would we have the votes.
Frank: I believe if it's you up there, next to Danielle.. I think Joe would do what I ask him to..
Brit: I would not have the votes. I would go home, Frank.
Frank: Between us 2, in that situation, if one of you might go home, I'd rather it be Shane..
Brit: Because he's a bigger threat to you..
Frank: No.. Because if Shane's gone, you'd almost have to work with me and Ian.. I want anybody to win that's not them 2..
OK.. Brit's up there covering her tush and getting what info she can from Frank..
Brit: I don't want to work with you, I am working with you. If Dan doesn't win the Veto, then Dan's going home this week. If Dan wins the veto, then we're in trouble.. But I can beat Dan in HoH.. I know I can beat him in Hoh.
Timecheck --- 11:36am -- Scenarios are the order of the day. Until the PoV is played, and we have a winner, it's alllll speculation.**Stretch! :) brb
BB: Frank, please come to the diary room
Frank: I'm not shaving my head, Brit. As stressful as this house is, it might never grow back.
Brit: I guess I'll go downstairs.. (down she goes) What's up, Ian?
F3 and 4
Brit and Dan
Dan: Last night, I'm like, I would throw it to you or Shane, but it's not about trusting you guys.. It's him. I have no questions about you or Shane.. He (Ian) just keeps going back and forth.
Dan: I thought so too. I have to win, or I'm going home..
Brit: If he doesn't use it, one of us is going hjome.
Dan: I know.. So do I win and save myself, but kill one of us, or do I put my fate in his hands? Do you think I mafe the right move in picking Jenn?
Shane comes in..
Dan: I was just telling her.. I woke up this morning, and I was gonna 100% throw it to you guys.. but then like an hour ago, he acted like he wasn't gonna use it.
Brit and Ian
Brit: He wants to know you'll use it.
Ian: If that perfect scenario comes up, I'll use it.
Ian: My 1st word is good. If it's the perfect scenario, it's gonna happen. I'd rather piss of 1 person who can't play HoH next week than the group. You can't say anything in front of JOe. That guy is the worst.
Brit: Dan is freaking out that you're not gonna use it. You need to tell him. I understand that you wont use it, if Dan or Danielle wins, but if me or Shane win, he needs to know you'll use it.
Ian: What shouldI do?
Brit: Go tell him
Ian leaves the room..
Dan: What'd he say?
Brit: He sais he's not gonna use it if you or Danielle win, but he is gonna use it if me or Shane win.
Dan: Whywas he so flaky this morning.
Brit: He said why would I go with someone who can't even play HoH next week?
Dan goes to find Ian.. Ian offers up the answer before Dan can ask the question..
Ian: If it's the perfect scenario, you're getting taken off.
Dan: You were freakin' me out this morning..
Ian: If it's the perfect scenario, you're coming down. Not a doubt in my mind. If Frank wins, I feel bad for you. I'm gonna tell Frank before hand.. I don't wanna blindside him.
Dan: You were freakin' me out.
Ian: The talk last night with the cashier freaked me out.
They end their conversation. Ian paces a bit.
BB: Ian, please go to the..
Ian: No? Yes? No..
Ian: No? Obviously not.
**fishies at 12:01pm.. I'm not opening a new top post yet. I'll tell you when I will.
BB: Frank, please come to the Diary Room.
Ian: I'm shocked you didn't get to host.
Joe: What's the game today?
Ian: How bad do you want it?! I haven't heard much construction, and that's a simple simple set up..
Shane: Slop I'm not gonna do a high number..
Brit: If you wanna do 8, I'll do 9.
Shane: If we tell Jenn to put like 4 or 5.. I'll wear a spiritard..
Brit: I wont take any prizes.. Just let Dan and Danielle take the prizes.
Shane: OK.. And they can give em to us later for helping them out.
Brit: Just don't tell (Jenn and Danielle) them the button pressing technnique.
Shane: What's that..
Brit: As long as between the 2 of us, we take the majority of the punishments, we'll win. Oh.. I thought of another one it could be.. the stock market.. Dan could wait for frank to Drop, then drop right after Frank.. then you and I could drop..
Shane: Right after jenn.
Brit: In that contest, you can cancel people out..
Shane: You want me to cancel out Dan?
Brit: Yeah, and i'll cancel out Danielle..
12:14pm Frank is out of the DR.
Frank: Now I've got that goofy Eminem song in my head.
Ian: I do too.
Brit: One of us has to win this, because if we don't..
Shane: One of them goes..
Brit: One of us goes up... and I don't know if I would have the votes against Danielle.
Frank: Where'd Shane go?
Ian: I think he's sleeping.
Frank goes looking..
Shane and Brit remain chatting in the Arcade. Shane heads out, then to the bathroom, then to the kitchen for beer talk with Frank.
Frank and Shane head up to the HoH Room..
Shane: If you promise me you wont backdoor me, I'll throw you the veto.
Frank: Actually what I wanted to talk to you about is further down the road.. When it gets down to the 3, if it's us and someone else, the someone else isn't gonna pick us. I'm not afraid to take you to final 2..
Shane: Me neither.
Frank lays out all the scenarios with other HGs who would not take Shane or himself to the final 2..
Shane: My goal going into this is I want to earn it. I want to bring someone else who's earned it too. I don't want a close jury vote.
**thought bubble: bubba, you're sweet, but you're an idiot.
At 12:24pm, this conversation is ongoing.. Birth of a final 2 agreement or complete and utter bs. I'm leaning toward the latter.Spying Dan and Ian on the Quad.. I hop over to join them and catch the end..
Have Not Room
Ian: It's just Shane is.. in a physical game, more threatening.. If that happened, I'd have to think hard about it.
Frank: If we win pov, pull the other off.. we can control the votes. As long as Britney's not on the block..
Shane: Dan's been throwing scenarios at her all morning. I'll do anything to win the pov, but I'm not shaving my head.
Frank: Me neither.
Shane: How bad could it be?
**i can hear production laughing thru the walls. not really.
The great head shave debate..
Frank: The one thing I wont do is max out the money..
Shane: Yeah. Ian said some girl gave away 250.
Frank and Shane are ongoing, but we're hopping back to Ian and Dan
Have Not Room
Dan: The other thing was Frank and Boogie questioning me and yelling at me up in the HoH Room.. If I'm gonna throw this competition, I gotta know that if it ends up me and Shane, I've got your vote.
Ian: You and Shane? I would lean toward keeping you..
Dan: That's not enough. I need to know. Next HoH, you wanna go against Shane?
Ian: Definitely not.
Ian: How will I know you're throwing it?
Dan: If I take all prizes..
Ian: It can't be a blatant throw though.. We gotta make sure Britney or Shane win it..
Dan: If something happens and it's me and Shane on the block, I have your word?
Ian (hesitates) Yeah. He's a physical threat.
Dan: Don't tell Britney.
Ian: I can't.
Ian: If anyone's trying to strong arm me, we're gonna have problems.
Ian and Britney
Britney's calming Ian.. tlking him off the ledge.. Ian's very stressed because Frank and Dan are both coming at him with jury vote threats, and Joe's annoying him..
Ian: If we can have 5 of us on Frank, Shane can take and HoH, I can take an HoH.. This week's gonna be a normal HoH, but the next one is gonna be another fast forward.. and I can take Frnk out. I like him, and I'd rather have him here than Joe.. Joe pulled me into the arcade and asked me not to use it.. I said, I want to know who you're playing with.
Brit: He's waiting to see who wins Veto to make his decision.
Ian: Of course he is.
Frank: I'm gonna be pissed if this freakin' comp's at like 5 o clock.
Frank: I kinda hope it's physical.
Shane: With you and me playin..
Talk turns to Dan not being physical, not working out..
Frank: That's why he'd want you and me gone.. because then he could dominate in the comps.
Shane: And people's heads.
Frank: I think Brit realizes that if I go, it's just a matter of time before Dan tries to get you out.
Shane: This game.. One little thing can throw you off. Everything happens for a reason I think...
Shane: That's crazy. I guess I shoulda watched how the end of the show ends.
Brit: Joe wants me to winm becaus ehe doesn' tthink I'll use the veto.. So he's telling me words to spell.. But Joe went and talked to Ian.. He doesn't want him to use the 2nd veto.. Ian's growing balls apparently.. He told Joe that he wants to know where he stands, because all he does is float to the power.
ian: Danielle is throwing this today, right? Cuz that's important.
Dan: If Danielle wins, I'm not gonna try to wheel and deal you. If she wins, i know I'm out.
Ian: If she doesn't throw it. If she wins and pulls herself down.. She has to throw it. Understood?
Dan: I understand, but it's hard for me to tell her to throw it, because it's her life on the line too.
Ian: No funny business, alright?
Dan: If it's How bad do you want it, do you care if I take prizes?
Brit: No. Shane and I have already talked about which punishments we'll take.If your light comes on, you know you got that one.
Dan: The other one we gotta talk about is closest to an hour..
Brit: I was thinking that too, but they'll probably make it so we can't see each other..
Dan: I gotta be right after Frank.. You gotta be right after Jenn..
Brit: If I start to panic and think everyone's going over, I'm gonna drop 1st. That's what I did in my season, and I won. Frank will be thinking, I'm not dropping til Dan drops.
Dan: What if I drop first.
Brit: No, because that'll cancel you out. Oh.. then Shane'll drop right after Frank.. But what if Frank doesn't take that strategy..
Dan: Guys follow the guys and girls follwo the girls.. If it's something creepy, you need to tell me you're dropping.. Say Sorry, Ryan.. I don't think it's gonna be spelling. The last 2 were physical. What does Frank say he's willing to do?
Brit: Everything but shave his head. I don't think he's being honest though. I'm gonna go for the shave the head, because Jenn said she was too..
Dan: I haven't talked to Danielle at all.
1:14pm - This is ongoing.. Both are happy it's Jenn and not Joe playing, since she's more likely to go for prizes..
Brit: Frank says he'll do anything, but I really don't think he will. He hated that spiritard..
Dan: What if you and Shane split the punishments.
Brit: We will.. Frank wont wanna give up any of the money either.. We were talking about how in my season, I was HoH and nobody else went for the punishments. I was like, i know, it was so crappy.. I'm gonna be playing my heart out.
Dan; Does Shane get the concept of it?
Brit: I told him go for the punishments, no prizes..
Dan: Besides the hair, I can't see Jenn going for any of the punishments..
1:18pm Chjecking the Quad, I see Frank with Ian in the Arcade..
Frank: Just, I need..
Ian: You're not gonna go up next week. I need you here! I feel like us 2 and Shane are the strongest ocmpetitors here.
Frank: Especially if Dan goes.
Ian: No matter what. We need to keep working this shit. We need to not nominate each other.
Frank; Ian, I wasn't gonna nominate you.
Ian I know. I just needed to keep me safe. We have to, me and you, we can't nominate each other for a while.. If we get to final 5, it's done. It's a done deal.
Frank; I need you to wash away any doubt about me.
Ian: You do scare me a little.
Frank: While I do kinda trust Britney.. I'm starting..
Ian: A vast majority of people don't want me to. It's very hard. Numbers wise, it's very scary.
Frank: It was a stressful situation. I'm still here. ONe thing.. If you won HoH next week, and Dan's not here, who would you put up next to Joe?
Frank: No. Danielle. I do trust Brit, but if we can keep Jenn around, she'll go after someone other than us. If you get to the end, or if I get to the end, we're gonna need Jenn's vote.
Ian: I know.. but evryone in this game.. We're not gonna go the whole time without being nominated. I have your intersts in mind in anyt move I make. Me and you have a lot of power this week. We need to use it to cement our footing.
Frank: You think Dan's mad at you now.
Ian: We need to look at every angle tomorrow..
Frank: As long as Dan doesn' twin the PoV, he's going out the door. Then we need to win hoH next week..
1:24pm- This is ongoing on 1 and 2..
Dan: Brit, I got in trouble..
Ian: Both of us have a shit ton of power this week, and we need to look at every single angle.. It's gonna get to a point where it's controversial.. Drinkin' and thinkin'..
Frank: It's best to have a clear mind when you'r emaking decisions. As long as Dan doesn't win PoV today, we're ok..
Ian: You never now where Dan is.. He checks his integrity at the door and picks it back up on the way out.
Frank: If you woulda done the right thing on Thursday..
Ian: I know I know I know.. My head was spinning.. I really like to think my decisions through and I had like 30 seconds.. I don' twish that on anybody.
Ian: I admit it was wrong and brash, bu tthe thing is, I'm not gonna nominate you if I get it next week. For sure. No matter whjat. Even if Dan were to come off.
Frank: You're not thinking about using yours on Dan, are you?
Ian: Not now. It doesn't behoove me in any way.
Frank: I'm telling you right now. As long as you don't use that mf'er on monday, I know I can trust you.
Ian reiterates that he wont put Frank up..
**BB, please call Ian to the DR and start this comp---hand Cramp!
BB: Ian, please go to the Diary Room.
Carolyn: Thanks, BB!
Ian: I gotta take a piss.
Frank; This might be it..
Ian: It might..
Dan: I love you, Chelsea. Say some prayers..
1:47pm... Shhhh... They're thinking...
Ian's out of the DR.. He comes to the HoH Room..
Ian: Never thought I'd see the small table.
Frank: We're gonna see the smaller table. If Dan goes this week..
Ian: Please. I want him to go. Please win the Veto.
Frank: The only thing I wont do is shave my head.
Ian: That's so superficial. I would think you'd do everything in your power. You gotta shave your head.
Frank: If he goes this week.
Ian: I want him to go.
Frank: We might be ok next week, no matter who wins..
Ian: Well, Danielle..
Frank; I've had some conversations with her, and I think she might be open.. I talked to her. She understand she's not the target..
Ian: She put you on the block, she put you in the spiritard..
Frank: I just had to make sure she wasn't a vote for Dan.. I don't even think she'd go after us next week. We might wanna get Joe out.
Ian: We really do need to get Joe out.
Frank: Dan came to me last night.. He said, the one thing I don't want is a floater to win this game.
Ian: I want.. and this is totally crazy.. I want the picking of sides ceremony.. where every single person is in the living room.. Me, you and Jenn are on 1 couch, and the others are on the other couch, and Joe's standing there, and I say, pick your side.
Frank: I dn't know if that's a good idea.. He might win hoH next week.
Ian: I trust him less than everyone here. everyone.
Frnak: But Dan.. At the same time, if Joe wins next week, we mightbe able to keep some het off of us.
Ian: I say if he gets it, we're going up.
Frank: I think you'r eright in the sense that he wont win.
Ian: The one person he wants out of here is me.. I said to him today, you're picking a side..
Frank: You've gotta calm that down, bubba.
Ian: I'll go down for what I believe in this game.. The people who deserve to be here are the people that should be here. I know it means we keep strong people here, but..
Frank: Yesterday, people saw another side of you and Dan..
Ian: It wasn't pretty. Everyone was being bad.
Frank: Your name and Dans have been brought up to me more..If you do something like that, people are gonna start thinking you're not such a nice kid.
Ian: Being in here is making me a worse person by the day.
Frank: It doesn' thave to.
Ian: I now know every single flaw I have.
TIme check -- 1:58pm
Ian: basically, if I don't win HoH next week, you're gonna go up, and that needs to be changed soon.
Frank: I've been workin on some.. I've been playing poor poor pitiful me with the girls.. I was cryin' in there before noms yesterday..
Ian: I've wanted a lengthy chat with the show psychologist for a while now..
Ian recounts the comp ugliness..
Ian: Apparently I told her to fk off.. And then when I won tthe Veto, i was like, Wrap F'in City, kids! You gotta know.. I'm the one here keepin' you safe next week, and you gotta know that. I want Joe gone. Without question. We can do soemthing next week.. It's over.. Over.. We make it to final 6? The games are gonna get all mental. Aside from the off endurance comp.
Time check --2:01pm
Ian: I tried to throw it at the end, but Danielle can't do math.
Frank: Why would you try to throw it, ian?
Ian: I was scared...
Frank: I know.. but.. we would've had Ash.. The HoHs turned out exactly how we needed them to.. We could be in such a better spot.
Ian: I know.. I know..
Frank: I really don't want this to be a How Bad do you want it.. I have to win every comp to stay in here.. If I'm a have not, it's not gonna be easy.
Ian: It's not as bad as you think. A lot of people are just big f'in complainers.
Ian: Just win the PoV. Just make sure Dan or Danielle doesn't win it.
Frank: Danielle's not the worst person to win it..
Ian: True.. but could get sticky.. He's too sheisty.. If he's up against anyone else, he's gonna slime them..
Frank: Say it's Britney up there.. We'd have your vote and Shane's vote for sure.. We only need one more. I know for sure that Jenn will vote Dan out.
Ian: And Brit Brit wont go anywhere.. They told you how the Veto Veremony was gonna work, right?
Frank: Tell me..
**Skippy's not keen on us knowing that yet. Quad to dan.
Ian: Just win it today, Bubba.. Shave your head. It's superficial..
Frank: Shaving my head is worse than wearing a spiritard for a week.. and my hair's too pretty, Ian. Like Rachel said on the Amazing Race, I need my hair to look pretty.
Ian (underbreath) superficial.
Ian displays Evicters remorse..
Ian: Boogie was gonna go anyway, but Ashley???
Frank: That's the thing.. I hold them responsible. Not you. It makes me mad that they used fear to intimidate you.
Ian: I'm afraid to hold power.
Frank; You better get ready to hold some power.
Ian: When I hold some power, it gets to be kinda scary.
Frank: We went through a bit of a storm, and now the sun's gonna clear up, and we're gonna get through this..
And we're back to getting Joe out.. --Time check 2:15
Frank: You and I tried out for this. A lot of the people just got found.. They don't know the show. THey're not fans of the show..
Ian: Keepin' you here for a while, bub, so get comfortable.
Frank: You better keep me to the end! I think both of us at least deserve 2nd place.
Ian: We've both made moves.. I'm definitely scummier though..
Frank: I don't think you're scummier.. You just had a dark moment on Thursday and it was rushed..
Ian: I really wanna talk to the show's psych.. (fishies) To get to this point has not been difficult, but I'm not nearly as stressed here as I am in real life.. Additionally, living conditions here are WAY easier than real life. It could get harder in an hour or 2...
Frank; It's been way more stressful for me..
Ian: I'm the only person here who's never been nominated. Brit hasn't this game.
Frank I wish we'd talked more. You know who we shoulda nominated..
Ian: I shoulda been up. I think it woulda behooved us both..
Frank: But if I'da put up Brit or Shane with you, it might've canceled out the good..
Ian: Mistakes are gonna happen. Sometimes the best deals in life are the ones you don't make.
**2:21pm -- I'm going a little buggy.. I need a 15-20 minute break of not looking at the puter..
2:33pm Trivia!!! It's time for the PoV Competition! We'll see you in a new top post with the PoV Spoiler and Aftermath as soon as the feeds come back and the results are known!
