Fathers: Days 44-45 - August 14
The story so far:
EVICTED: Carol, Joe, Mike, Nick, Kail
Nominated: Dick vs. Danielle
Jessica’s reign has got Dick and Daniele feeling
like total idiots. There have been so many swaps of power that they feel like
they should have seen this coming. Regardless, Dick has made it his full
intention to make sure that he gets voted out and that Daniele gets to stay.
This might seem a little premature when you consider that the Power of Veto has
not even been awarded yet.
The entire house for once seems united as everyone seems happy with the plan to
get rid of one of the “Double D’s.” As a result there isn’t that much strategy
talk going on. Instead, most everything is a pep talk as players get ready for
the Veto competition.
But who will get the chance to play in the veto competition? As always, a random
draw will reveal the houseguests’ fate.
Jessica draws Jameka
Daniele draws Dusting
Dick pulls out Zach
Daniele and Dick aren’t really that happy with the selections as they feel that
no one will help to veto them off the block, but they already knew that would be
the case anyway.
Let’s play Wicked Wickets!
Each player will in secret be challenged to drink 10 different Big Brother
concoctions ranging from plain water to pickle juice to a bacon, egg, cheese and
OJ smoothie (YUM!) For every drink that a player downs they will be given on
croquet whack of a ball. For every wicket they knock the ball through they will
score a point with a perfects shot passing through 4 wickets and hitting the
wood pole being worth 5 points (thus max 50)
The highest score will win the Power of Veto.
With the gruesome eating task standing before the wickets, many houseguests
decide that they don’t really need this veto that bad. Here are the drink
But would those drink turn into enough points to win the veto.
Zach’s 3 shots earn him 6 points.
Jameka sets the new bar at 10 with her 4 shots.
Jessica brings a little heat, pushing the high score to 17
Daniele fights for her life scoring 20, but with the shot difference, this game
is really just between Dustin (“Princess”) and Dick.
Dustin maintains consistent shots (including a perfect one) to score 32.
After 9 shots, Dick has managed to pull close to Dusting but with 28 points Dick
will need a perfect shot to win the veto.
As if this would be Big Brother is anything else happened. Dick hits it straight
down the middle. A perfect shot for a total of 33, beating Dustin by 1 and
winning the Golden Power of Veto.
Veto in hand, the gamesmanship on the part of the Donatos will not cease.
Daniele heads to the HoH room later that evening (where everyone but her Dad is)
and breaks down crying letting all the players knows that she is hurt that they
define her by her father. Jameka isn’t fully buying it and says that if Daniele
doesn’t want to be lumped in with her father that she should stand against him
more often. Eric chimes in citing how both she and her father attacked his
reputation in the house.
Daniele is mildly defensive, but most people in the room seem to believe that
she is being genuine. Daniele says that this is how she was actually feeling,
but that she realized her feelings could be used to her strategic advantage.
But back to the real problem at hand. With veto usage imminent, who will be the
replacement nomination? America wants Eric to make is Dustin and unbelievably,
Dustin offers himself up in front of Jessica. Eric seizes the opportunity saying
what a funny smack in the face it would be for Dick to go home while sitting
next to Dustin.
The chance for revenge seems to taste too good to Jessica and after Dick removes
Daniele from the block, Jessica takes Dustin up on his offer.
So now it is Dustin vs. Dick. Dustin is having a little bit of pawn’s remorse,
but will it affect his final standing in the house? Keep tuning in to find out.
Fourteen Americans are sent into isolation from the rest of
the world for a chance to win up to $500,000. All with the
all-knowing, all-seeing eyes and ears of Big Brother watching
All 51 and 74 of them.
