Its true, Britney has left the Big Brother house. By a vote of 5-1 the house guests chose to send the 3rd coach packing, however this time the bag was packed for the second member of the Jury. Britney was a tough player this year, and even having Willie (who was expelled by BB for breaking violence rules, back week 2) as a team member managed to survive until all but one of her players was gone. She will be missed, as the last 7 members of the house lack the normal “spirit” that people like Britney bring to the house. As America’s favorite house guest in the past, she has a chance to again take home the $25,000 cash prize! Stay tuned and vote for your favorites!
After the eviction, the House guests went straight to an endurance competition called “Around the Sun” in which the players had to stand feet on a round (very small) disc hanging from long ropes, and be swung around while hanging on and staying on for the longest. The sun of course sprayed them with “tanning” spray and later a “comet” that looked more like a caveman club to me, would pummel and twist the competing house guests. America tweeted out to CBS during the live show, and the first house guest to be eliminated from the competition would be given (based on the viewer vote) either a punishment or a reward. America decided to levy punishment on Joe, who fell from the ropes after only two minutes (on a personal note, this was before the live broadcast had even ended, Jenn was soon to follow. Joe was punished with 24 hours of hula hoop boot camp (he had to get up and hula hoop whenever a song comes on for the next 24 hours). The contest came down to Shane and Ian, ( it was pretty obvious that Ian had the right stuff to win) and Shane’s muscles could not hold out and he made a deal with Ian for safety for the week and dropped.
Pandora’s Box was offered to Ian, and after seeing a Christmas tree with presents under it, he accepted and opened the door to find many fun cute toy type gifts ( which are perfect for Ian, and he loved them all) and $1000 in cash ( of which he did not mention to the other house guests). As with all Pandora’s box’s, there is something unleashed ( good or bad) on the house. Jessie Claus ( Jessie is a notoriously disliked past house guest) and his return to the house was definitely a negative. Jessie took all the “unhealthy” food out of the house, and replaced it with his idea of healthy food. The house guests were not happy with the visitor nor with his presents, but played along like good sports. It seems this week instead of have-nots, we have a house full of health nuts!
At the nomination ceremony Ian gave easily the best nomination speech of the season. He was frank (pun intended) and honest, and he spoke with the most confidence I have seen from him all season. He even looked both Frank and Jenn in the eyes when he was taking to them, which hasn’t been done a lot at the nomination ceremonies this year. Here’s what he told Frank and Jenn when their keys were not pulled from the box, “Frank, you are a phenomenal competitor in this game. And I downright respect you for it, but you’re a huge threat and that is definitely an issue I have to look at going down the line. Jenn, you have played a remarkable social game so far and you’re also a threat. And I just have to keep these types of considerations in mind when moving forward and nothing personal, just strategy.
Because Julie Chen announced it to the viewers, we are expecting a double Eviction this Thursday. The house guests are not expecting it, but have an idea another double eviction or a fast forward might be coming and have been running around making final 3 and 2 deals with each other. Everyone seems to have more than one deal, and this weeks nominations are no exception. Tune in for tonight’s show to see who will win power of Veto, and possibly save Jenn or Frank from eviction. See who will be put up on the block if the power of Veto is used tonight at 9:00/8:00 Central on CBS!
