Big Brother 14: Blood Up to My Elbows


ML- The picture says it all: Dan Gheesling is a mastermind.

(I'm not even going to address the clip show episode tonight. All you need to know is Dan won endurance Part 1).

He has gotten himself into a situation where both remaining players want to bring him to the Final 2, guaranteeing him $50,000 and giving him a pretty great case to the half-a-million.

But will the "blood up to his elbows" blind the jurors from voting for Dan, who has played an amazing strategic game but failed to handle jury management? We got our first glimpse at the jury house last week, where we saw Britney battle Frank over Dan's gameplay. Frank thought Dan was playing dirty because he made a deal then went back on it, but Britney reminded him Frank did the same thing to her. What it all comes down to is that it is A GAME, and, as Boogie said, "this is the Big Brother house. You can bounce checks." Remember that, Frank? Chill out, bro.

How will the votes fall? I did a juror-by-juror recap at Final 5, but with more information, let's project how the votes fall.

Dan/Danielle:
Ashley: Dan?
Britney: Dan
Frank: Danielle (maybe Dan)
Joe: Dan
Jenn: Danielle
Shane: Danielle
Ian: Dan
Verdict: Most likely Danielle, unless Frank stops playing Susie High Horse and votes for Dan. I honestly think Frank will come around, as a fan of this game, and vote for Dan.

Dan/Ian:
Ashley: Ian
Britney: Ian
Frank: Ian
Joe: Ian
Jenn: Dan?
Shane: Ian
Danielle: Dan?
Verdict: Ian easily.

Danielle/Ian:
Ashley: Ian
Britney: Ian
Frank: Ian
Joe: Danielle
Jenn: Danielle
Shane: Danielle
Dan: Toss Up
Verdict: I think this all comes down to Dan. Will he vote for his player or for the better player? My guess is Danielle.

So everyone has a shot to win this! Can't wait to see the final HoH Wednesday night and to go to the finale party on Thursday! If anyone has questions for any of the Houseguests, be sure to post them in the comments and I will do my best to make sure they are asked!

Winner Pick: Dan
Episode Grade: C for the Clip Show, A for Shane's eviction.
Original Airdate: 9/16/2012 for the Clip Show, 9/13/2012 for Shane's eviction.

  1. The look on Danielle face when Dan voted Shane to go home was priceless. I found the reminiscing part to be a bit boring. The only entertaining part was when Britney was beating up the teddy bear. I couldn’t stop laughing when she slipped and fell on her butt. I missed part one of the competition last night, so this morning I made sure to watch it on my Hopper with the Auto Hop feature. It automatically skips the commercials for me, so I got ready for work while watching it. The feature saves me time, so I had a chance to grab coffee on my way to work at Dish. I think anyone could win this game, but my vote is for Dan. I think he has played the game the best so far.
