shanes eviction

anonymous asked:

People saying ikas flaw was not winning comps but the fact that she came this far almost winning with no comps is what makes her so legendary imo. I'm proud

Tea! social/strategic games are more interesting to watch than comp beast games imo. To get someone to make a decision that isn’t in their best interest is impressive (Sindy nominating Neda, William nominating Demily, Karen/Dillon evicting Jackie). People always talk about Dan’s funeral/Dan evicting Shane because it was that amazing but I doubt anyone can name off the top of their head each comp Rachel or Janelle won.

~~Fave Moment from Every Season~~

BB1: Nothing.. That season was so fucking boring
BB2: Shannon cleaning the toilet with Hardy’s toothbrush
BB3: Marcellas not using the veto and getting evicted
BB4: Allison Irwin
BB5: Drew cutting Diane
BB6: Janelle winning DE after Kaysar eviction
BB7: Janelle cutting Will
BB8: Dick fight with Jen
BB9: Amanda and Allison in medical…that’s it
BB10: Keesha’s Birthday
BB11: Chima’s Expulsion…. But I <3 chima
BB12: Kathy stuck in caramel or Ragan vs Rachel
BB13: Rachel following Dani after Brendon eviction
BB14: Dan evicting Shane in F4
BB15: Andy getting Mccrae to evict Elissa
BB16: Frankie’s face when he lost AFP
BB17: Austin’s Blindside
BB18: James’s face when he lost AFP to Natalie

Except the difference here is that Dan had his back against the wall and instead of letting his 24 hours of isolation break him he managed to blow up his own alliance to get his biggest enemy in the house, Frank, to not only convince Jenn to use the PoV on him but to put Britney a big threat to Dan’s game on the block and backdoor her. When it comes to Danielle and Shane. He got Danielle to use the PoV on Dan when once again he was for sure going home to put up Shane, Danielle’s closest ally and then blindsided both of them by evicting Shane in order to ensure that both Ian and Danielle would take him to the final two in the event either one of them won the final HoH. As far as him manipulating Danielle, sorry that Danielle was continually gullible enough to trust the man that kept repeatedly stabbing her in the back and would just come in a say “oh my bad just kidding!” 

Then we have Vanessa who yes has blindsided Jason. But what is this doing for her game? Does it put her in a better position overall? No not really what Vanessa has successfully done is turn the entire other side of the house against her putting a massive target on her back and at this point in the game there are still enough people to create a massive power switch and end up sending her home. She not only put up nonthreatening Jason she chose to keep Austin who has Liz in his back pocket (despite what she may say in the DR she is still loyal to him) and who is blowing up their alliance and unlike Dan, Vanessa has no control over this crumbling alliance. By choosing Austin to stay she has kind of isolated the other two members of her alliance and we don’t really know where Julia’s head is at so it could be a third since she hates Austin so much! 

To sum it all up, Dan has used blindsiding and manipulation to further his game when he was for sure going home several times and to ensure himself a spot in the final two. Vanessa on the other hand was too afraid to get blood on her hands by getting out the ticking time bomb in their alliance and overall physical threat and in turn is getting far more blood on her hands than she would have if she had nominated Austin, basically ensuring that unless two Sixth Sense members are HoH then she is probably going to be on the chopping block. Now do I think that BB17 is ruined because of her? No. Do I think that the move she made was a dumb one and seriously detrimental to her game? Yes. Sorry for the rant but I don’t see why people are trying to compare the actions of a two time veteran (winner and runner-up) to the actions of the week 5 HoH. But if we want to draw comparisons let us be completely thorough in our analysis.

I’d have more respect for production if they rigged the game by coaching Alex. Let her get herself out of danger if she’s that good of a player. Dan’s funeral, Dan getting Danielle to use the power of veto on him and being the sole vote to evict Shane, Michelle telling Polly with or without him she had the votes to keep Tiffany, Danielle flipping Shane against Cornbread, those are exciting moments for fans to watch. Big moves and strategies are entertaining, handing HG freebies and trying to convince the HoH to protect productions favorites are not.
