Big Brother 14: Live Feeds - Dan's Plea Practice - Sept 19

Dan goes over his speech to the jury

"When this game was reset, I knew I was in trouble. On the pirate ship, I saw two huge physical competitors in Frank and Shane that I couldn't beat. I saw two huge social competitors in Jenn and Joe ..." On and on.

He's using a stopwatch to time himself. He's basically going on the fact that everyone's game was so great that he had to play a ruthless game, not because he wanted to, but he had to. He couldn't depend on winning competitions. He had to get people to do something for him, then stab them in the back. He had to do the funeral to make it seem like he wasn't working with Danielle. When Joe figured it out, he had to go. The funeral was also a cover to make a deal with Frank -- if Britney knew, she would have stopped it.

He goes from mentioning that Ian said nasty things about Ashley to the fact that he doesn't have a photographic memory like Ian. I think he's settling on the latter one. I personally think that's a better choice. If he trashes Ian, it looks sleazier and childish.

But, he's obviously setting all of this up planning to be sitting next to Ian ... NOT Danielle. I think he will indeed throw the comp. After all, if he's practicing the speech and timing it, it would throw everything awry to be sitting next to Danielle.

For some reason, his speech is reminding me of a domestic abuser telling his victim, "You MADE me do it. I love you, baby." Oh, sure. It's a bit nicer. Jus' sayin' ...

I will put up another post with the highlights of yesterday and last night. But I felt this deserved immediate attention. Nothing else has been as newsworthy.

Well this blows. I still can't think why he's not considering taking Danielle.

Ninboh - Part of Dan's game is control. I seriously think he's worried that he wouldn't be able to beat Ian in the last part. Dan has to be in control. He knows Ian will definitely take him to the final two and vote Danielle off. I think Dan wants to concentrate all his focus on a Plan A rather than think of a Plan B, too.

He has more control if he goes with the assumption that Ian wins the final round. He knows he's golden for the final two. I think he feels he only needs to get to that point, then it's up to his plea.

If Dan throughs the win to Ian, Can someone please explain to me why Ian wouldn't do to Dan what Dan has done to everyone else by stabing him in the back and keeping Danielle. If he is such the controll freak - why wouldn;t he want to win so he can "controll"

I think Dan thinks the same way I do about Ian -- it's not in Ian to backstab him. Dan has asked Ian several times to reassure him that he'd take him to the final two. Ian would really wham it totally if he wins and takes Danielle ... but I don't think he will. He has this thing about "to be the best, you have to beat the best" -- that would be Dan. Ian also has loyalty to the "Renegades."

Since Ian has such a strong chance to win the final part of HoH, Dan's safest route is to make plans for an Ian HoH win. He likes to have everything thought out.
