Big Brother Episode Recap: Eviction 3 Season 14, Episode 13

Given how quickly and easily Boogie turned the Big Brother house on its head in Wednesday's episode, is there any way to imagine that his plan won't work? In other words: Does Janelle have any chance of staying in the house this week? I'll admit that if anybody could figure a way out of a hopeless situation, it might just be Janelle. Especially when one player begins to question the Silent Six's plan. So, who was sent home? And who is the new head of household? Let's find out.

While Boogie celebrates the way he "took over" Danielle's HOH reign, Janelle is fittingly surprised to get put on the block. Danielle confirms that she chose to leave Frank on the block instead of Wil in order to better hide the new alliance. Good thing, I guess, since Janelle charges right into Danielle's room demanding answers. Danielle's not thoroughly convincing in my mind, but she basically sticks to a story that everyone told her Janelle was coming after her. Janelle is flabbergasted and suspects Boogie and Frank, who Janelle reminds Danielle have "motivations" to lie. Danielle insists she was acting outside the advice of Dan and that Janelle shouldn't be worried because Frank will probably still go home. Janelle tells Danielle she made a mistake and leaves the room.

When Janelle asks Dan what the heck Danielle was thinking, he too plays dumb. He chalks it up to Danielle's "girl feelings," which is something he can't rationalize against. (Boogie accidently interrupts the conversation, but hilariously takes his sweet time leaving the two alone again.) Dan says Janelle should be able to get the votes she needs, and suggests that he will vote to keep her.

Janelle then works the others in the house, including Joe and Wil, who promise Janelle their votes. Britney, who is probably the best actress in the house (her shocked face at the veto ceremony was pretty convincing), also promises Janelle her vote repeatedly. But Britney starts to crack. Janelle's comments that she would never target the other coaches hits Britney hard and makes her wonder why she's sending home an ally. She asks her alliance to just come clean with Janelle and tell her the plan because she's tired of lying and backstabbing. (Um, hello? It's Big Brother!) 

Useless pre-taped package alert: The producers visit the homes of Ian and Ashley and ask their parents to weigh in on their showmance. (Really, it was one slop date and a bunch of nerdy awkwardness from Ian ever since). We learn that Ian is really smart (he knew all the flags of the world at age 3!) and Ashley is a free spirit (she meditates!), both of which we already know. Ashley's parents actually love Ian and think he'd be good to Ashley. Yay! Moving on...

It's time to vote, and as I suspected, this is one back-door operation that wasn't going to blow up. Janelle is evicted from Big Brother a third time by a vote of 8-1, with Joe being the only person voting to evict Frank. Janelle tells Julie that everyone was afraid of her and that she's not surprised they got her out now. She feels she perhaps went too hard after Frank, but knows he's a strong player. And even though she concedes that Boogie is a great player, she says the target on him is too big for him to actually win. After Boogie in his goodbye message takes credit for Janelle's eviction --"always the bridesmaid, never the Big Brother bride," he says -- Janelle calls him a loser and a "douchebag."

For the HOH competition, the players had to compete two at a time to listen to some terribly cheesy songs and decide whether the lyrics describe a HOH, veto or coaches' competition. The first person to ring moves on if they are correct, or is eliminated if they are wrong. The winner gets to pick the next two players to face-off.

Wil beats Jen in the first round, and Boogie beats Joe in the second. Wil then is eliminated by Ashley, and Britney boots Shane. Ian eliminates Ashley, and Britney puts out Dan. (Boogie seems to be orchestrating the pairs from the sidelines, even when he's not choosing. Why not make your "silent" alliance a little more obvious?) Frank knocks out Boogie (who threw the competition on purpose at that point), Britney eliminates Ian, and Frank beats Britney to become the new HOH.

If you're keeping score, pretty much the only time Frank hasn't been on the block is when he's been HOH. He's a strong player, and I wonder how the people who sent home Janelle feel about it now. Granted, getting Janelle out early is smart, and the alliance that remains could go far, unless it implodes. We'll see what happens!

Who do you think Frank will nominate? Were you glad to see Janelle go? And who do you think will win? Vote in our poll below!
