As always, we had several minutes of recap, including the coaches return to the game and picking up with the endurance challenge on the pirate ship to select the new HOH.
Britney knew her chances of making it to the end and winning the coaches prize was not good, so that is why she hit the button. Boogie was sitting pretty and thought he could make it to the end, which is why he didn’t push the button.
Before the HOH comp, Dan let Boogie know that the plan was to vote Frank out because he needed to build trust with him. Janelle lied about hitting the reset button to make herself look innocent, while giving it her all to win the whole game.
The HOH game continued for a few hours, and it came down to Ian, Britney and Danielle. Wil dropped along with Shane, but not before Danielle promised to keep Wil safe. Shane pretty much knew he was safe with Danielle or Brit. Janelle jumped because she was “back in with Britney” and hoped she’d keep her safe. Ian was the next to try and work out a deal with Danielle. Dan then told Danielle to set the deal, don’t make the deal. Danielle knew that Dan had her back and she had his. Ian got Danielle to promise he was safe and there would be no backdoor, so he dropped. Britney then dropped to give Danielle the HOH. Dan gave her a huge hug, and Shane gave her a huge kiss!
Everyone who fell stayed around, except Frank and Boogie. They went inside to get warm and talk strategy. Boogie knew Danielle and Wil told Frank that he was safe, but they were lying. Frank and Boogie, where were inside, were shocked to learn Danielle won HOH.
Dan realized his confiding in Boogie about sending Frank home was already backfiring as Frank now knows. Meanwhile Shane was upset that his HOH turned out to be pointless. Boogie remained on a rampage to find out who knew about the plan to send Frank home. Britney played innocent, though everyone was planning to get him out and she knew someone has a big mouth. Britney needed to find out who threw the entire house under the bus. Britney talked to Shane about not admitting anything about the original plan to get rid of Frank, and to stay on Danielle and Dan’s good side. Britney went back to Boogie and Frank and says Shane swore to Frank that he was good, she’s clueless.
Dan admitted to Danielle and Britney that he was the one who screwed up and told Boogie that Frank was going, he was just so excited that he blabbed. Well we know that’s not what happened, he wanted to get on Boogie’s good side.
Danielle got her HOH room, and most weren’t very happy about it. It was another ass kissing session in the HOH room!
Danielle, Britney, Shane and Dan all tried to figure out who to nominate. Dan didn’t want another coach up, because if a coach goes this week then he has the biggest target on his back. Dan suggested Wil and Frank, with Wil as the pawn. Danielle agreed that Frank needed to go. Later Britney and Danielle talked with Wil about nominations, and Wil reminded Danielle that she promised to keep him safe! Danielle felt bad about just deciding to put him up . . .
Dan and Danielle had another conversation. She doesn’t know if she wants to nominate Wil as a pawn and make him an enemy, but she’s also afraid of Boogie not being on the block. Dan continued to try and keep a coach off the block, as they’d have his back later. Danielle didn’t want to piss off Will, but if she put Boogie and Frank then one would go guaranteed. That would be good for her game.
The nominations were held, and in the end Danielle nominated Wil and Frank. Wil was furious he was on the block. Danielle wanted Frank to go, and hadn’t yet talked to Wil about being a pawn. Boogie however was insulted he wasn’t on the block!
If you want to know the Veto results . . . keep reading!
Danielle won Veto. Will she keep the noms the same, or go with her gut and take Wil off and put Boogie up?
