Big Brother 14 - Willie Hantz Drama and More!

I reserved judgement on the new season of Big Brother until after I saw few episodes and am glad I did.  The first episode left me feeling a bit indifferent.  I wasn't a big fan of the 4 coaches from prior seasons being brought in.

I figured that would completely mess with the traditional alliances and throw the whole game off.  But after watching for 2 weeks now, I'm cool with the changes.  Having the coaches compete in their own competition, with the winner being able to keep one player safe or swap a player adds an interesting twist.

Spoiler Alert:  If you have not seen all of the episodes up to now, be aware the rest of this post may contain spoilers.

Willie Hantz and Joe
Willie Hantz, the brother of the famous Survivor player Russell, is now gone due to his confrontation with Joe, which I think is good for the house overall, but bad for ratings probably.  He certainly hasn't gone away quietly.  He apparently got into a battle of words with former player Evel Dick on Twitter...

When a fan tells Dick that she’d love to see a future “Big Brother” that pitted Dick against Willie (“Big Brother 15: Season of the Phallic Names?”), Evel Dick wasn’t up for the challenge.

“Willie sucked... handed HOH and self evicted before even POV was played... why would I bother?” wrote Dick.

Dick tweeted that comment to Willie, who then responded with his own insult.

“[Dick] quit cause of withdrawals. I got kicked off for checking a punk. So stop with the comparisons. Thanks”

“Go choke on a fat **** willie,” tweeted Dick. “You couldn't hang when Janelle made you her b**** and fed you dog food … When the going get tough the p****** self evict,” added Dick.

Willie also got into a Twitter fight with Alex Stein (who?) from the Glass House show, but that was most likely just to draw attention to that show since no one is watching.

And as I was typing this, I got an email from one of my sisters with a link to Willie getting arrested last night and being charged with Operating a Vehicle Impaired (OVI).  No shortage of drama surrounding him. 

Shane and Frank
As far as the remaining players in the game, I definitely think Frank is one of the strongest players both competition wise and personality wise, but he does have a bit of a target on his back being on Mike Boogie's team. 

Shane is also a very strong competitor and I like his game play.  He is playing both sides, trying to align with Frank, while also keeping that info from his coach and the rest of his team.  I think as long as none of that comes to light, he's making good strategic moves.

Ashley and Jenn
I think the stealth, under the radar players are Jenn and Ashley.  Jenn does not get a lot of TV time, so that's probably why I say that.  I don't think anyone has mentioned her name and she really hasn't created any waves in the house.  She may be one that makes it pretty far in the game without much effort.  Ashley is the bubble head that is terrible at competitions, so I think she will fly under the radar for a while as well. 

If I had to pick someone that I WANT to win the game it would be Frank, but I have a feeling it might be Shane that beats him out.  The under the radar player that I think will make it the longest will be Jenn.  The coach that I think will make it to the end is Janelle.

Now after watching Thursday night's episode, we get to vote on if we want to let the coaches compete with the players.  Hmm...that potentially changes everything once again.  I don't think that is fair to the players, but I think America will say yes.   I will be voting no.  FYI, you can vote up to 10 times per person.  Just keep clicking your vote until it says you've hit 10.  

What are your thoughts?  What do you think of the game so far and who do you want to win?  Who do you think will fly under the radar the longest?  Will you vote yes or no to let the coaches enter the game with the players?  Drop a comment below and let me know!
