As expected, the fifth episode of the fourteenth season of Big Brother dealt with the ejection of Willie Hantz after an altercation with fellow houseguest Joe Arvin.
What needs to be said is that the show was edited to make it look like Hantz had just snapped. On the live feed, a totally different story was shown. Hantz had been talking about performing a violent act the day before. It gives the impression that the producers were egging Willie on for the sake of ratings.
As for Allison Grodner saying violence isn’t tolerated in the house, obviously that’s the preferred goal for everyone. But let’s not forget an incident in BB8 between Dick Donato, Jen Johnson, and a cigarette. No action was taken against either party, and Donato wound up winning that season.
Sooner or later, there will be an incident in that house everyone will wind up regretting. CBS and the producers always cast someone on the borderline of mental sanity. One of these days, it will bite them in the ass, and hard.
Other than that, it was a fairly decent show. The coaches competition was a hoot, with Boogie snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, allowing Janelle to win. She elected not to trade, giving immunity to Ashley.
As is the producers custom, the “showmance” angles are being built. Ian and Ashley and Shane and Danielle are the likely couples to be in the house.
Ian continues to be the star of the show, volunteering to go on slop a second HOH cycle straight. Also seems the go-to guy when it comes to giving diary room opinion.
The big question now is, with the game reduced to eight players Thursday night, is will the coaches become houseguests? Notice how the show is allowing these kind of open questions to be aired.
They are also not being denied, so I assume the answer is yes.
