When you are in the “Big Brother” house, it’s no secret that you are dealing with what is a complicated and ever-changing mechanism. Depending on what happens each week, you need to have multiple plans — and even when one alliance looks like it is falling apart, you need to make sure you find a way to cover yourself later.
(Warning: the following contains spoilers.)
After Head of Household Danielle made her huge move at the Veto Ceremony and put Janelle up on the block, a number of the other ex-coaches starting to scramble with their claims that they didn’t know that she was going to be backdoored. The “comp queen” was of course furious and desperate for some sort of explanation, mostly because she had no idea that this was going to be happening. Unfortunately for her, both Dan and Britney effectively said that Danielle didn’t tell either of them that they knew everything that was going on behind closed doors. In throwing Danielle under the bus, they are making her target larger — but we really don’t know whether or not Janelle is silly enough to actually believe that a pair of All-Stars are really that clueless when it comes to this game. They just don’t want to anger her in the event that she actually stays.
As for Janelle’s former players, they are mostly just telling her what she wants to hear. Joe and Ashley seem to be the two who are really the most surprised and/or angry about the move, while Wil has already decided to abandon ship, blast Janelle to some of the other players, and tell Frank that he is siding with him on the block. (Of course, he told the same exact thing to Janelle.)
For now, one of our only two three-time players seems to be spending most of her time in the house gathering information, and she will likely use that starting tomorrow to make a few deals here and there. We still think that the odds of her actually staying in the game are pretty low, but you know that Janelle is not going to go down without a good fight.
Do you think that Janelle buys for a second that the other former coaches are “clueless” about what happened with her? To get some more details about the Veto Ceremony itself for the week, click here.
