We are nearing the Power of Veto Ceremony Monday in the “Big Brother 14” house, and this is really turning out to be quite an interesting game. Why? For the first time really since he has been in the house, Ian now knows what it feels like to have some sort of actual power — and unlike some others (let’s all point at Danielle or Shane!), he’s not letting it get too much in his head.
With Frank winning the Veto, Boogie is trying to do everything that he can to push Dan as a replacement nominee to give himself a chance to stay. He knows that Ian is a superfan, and so with that in mind he has told his former team member to go up to the Head of Household Room and tell Shane about everything dishonorable that Dan did during his season. What Boogie does not know, however, is that Ian is largely responsible for him going home to begin with — and all Ian told Shane about was that Dan was usually pretty loyal to one alliance, and disloyal to everyone else. The only silly move than Ian made to Shane is volunteering to go up as a pawn if need be, since he believes that he really has the votes to stay in this game.
Shane’s other major option — and the one he leaning towards — is putting up Jenn, who did follow Boogie’s lead and try to get Dan backdoored and sent home. She is someone who would be a vote for Boogie to stay in the house, and this argument is that Ashley would want to keep her around over Mike. Therefore, Frank’s really the only guaranteed vote to move in Boogie’s direction come Thursday night.
Do you think Ian as a pawn is a good idea at all, and what do you think about the way he is handling this game? If you want to check out our full review of Sunday night’s new episode, be sure and read the story over at this link. The Veto should happen on Monday afternoon.
