Big Brother 14, July 19 – When Froot Loops Decide the Game

Usually people aren't playing the game so early on Big Brother. The first person to leave is usually the most annoying. But with Willie taking Coach Britney's advice, he put up two players who aren't the most annoying in the house. No matter who leaves tonight, it will be someone who had the wherewithal to go far, although if Frank leaves, it will be someone who was also somewhat annoying. But if Kara leaves, it will just be because she she was attractive, smart, and likable, so a very big threat to Britney's game.

Julie Chen opens the show by explaining the coaches may think they're controlling the game, but they should know more than anyone that “its' the players who control this game.” After Shane decided not to use the veto, he explains he doesn't want any blood on his hands. He hopes this shows Willie that they can go far in this game together. Kara says it sucks, but she's all cried out. She needs at least five votes to stay, and if it's a tie at four and four, Willie will be breaking the tie.

Frank feels as though Willie is the key for him getting the votes to stay this week. Smart one, isn't he? He goes up to the HoH to talk to Willie and tells him he doesn't trust anyone else in the house as much as Willie. Willie promises him he'll get him the votes to stay, and tells him the only way it won't work is if he goes around and starts talking to people. If he turns on Willie, he'll vomit. Vomit? I can't possibly be hearing that right. If he does get the votes for Frank, it will prove to him that Willie wants to work with him. He promises he can trust him.

Willie wants Frank to stay in the house, because later on down the road he might help him. He has an alliance, so just has to convince them they need to keep Frank. He thinks he can work them any direction he wants. This group includes Britney's and Janelle's teams. He holds a meeting with them to talk about sticking together and who to keep. Wil sees Kara as the better choice for a team game, while Kara is the better choice for a single game. Britney wants to eliminate all of Dan's players, because then he'll go home too. She thinks Dan has magic power, and that when he talks you hear an angel's chorus. Willie thinks Kara would definitely put some of them up next week, as Dan would make her. Joe's on board with getting rid of Kara, and everyone else agrees to it as well.

Janelle talks to Dan, because she's worried he'll be mad at her if Kara goes. She tells him she's not sure why, but the others really want to keep Frank. Dan tells her it's stupid, as they'll never get Frank out. Janelle explains these people are stupid, and it sucks, as keeping Kara would allow them run of the house. Britney notices the conversation going on and thinks Janelle is thinking the grass is greener over on the other side with the other coach.

Britney realizes looking at the memory wall that her picture has a hole for a key next to it, as do the other coaches. She wonders if they'll be entering the game as players in a big twist. She discusses it with Willie and tells him not to discus it with anybody. With the numbers, there aren't enough people in the game right now. It leaves two missing weeks. She thinks Janelle knows this and this is why she wants to work with Dan. Willie knows this means the coaches won't be looking out for their best interests, He doesn't want them controlling the way he thinks, explaining he's nobody's pawn.

When several houseguests are sitting around later, Britney asks Joe how he's doing. He says he's happy the game's on. Britney doesn't want the game to be on and just wants everyone to live harmoniously. Willie takes the opportunity to call a house meeting, and Britney starts to freak out about what he's going to talk about, seeing her entire game going down in flames. Janelle tries to go in for the meeting and is told Willie just wants the players and not the coaches.

Dan tells Britney if that was one of his players, he would have nixed that. Britney tries to act cool, saying she just just wants to let them have their meeting. Willie tells the others he thinks they're being pitted against each other by their coaches, and he thinks it's the dumbest thing in the world when they're in the there to win the money for themselves. They could change the game and play like they don't have coaches. He encourages the others to not let the coaches make their decisions for them. They could play like they don't have coaches.

Danielle is tired of feeling awkward because people are supposedly going to the coaches and the coaches are going to people. She's tired of people not talking to her. Janelle, Dan, and Britney begin to wonder where Boogie is, and Dan says he could be leading the meeting for all they know. Nope. He's inside sleeping.

Willie also tells everyone there's a good possibility the coaches might be coming back into the game. He points out the key slots by their names. Ian, the Big Brother trivia expert, explains the game is meant for fourteen now and hasn't been played with twelve in the past ten years. Kara thinks the coaches will band together, while Joe thinks Willie is playing too fast by guessing at what will happen. Wil just wants to take a 24-hour break from game talk.

Frank felt better about his chances before Willie called the meeting. He needs to go talk to Willie privately to see where his head's at. They start talking about staying legit with each other, and Britney walks in to interrupt the pow wow. Willie does a pretty good impression of Wil, repeating the line about the 24-hour break. Frank remarks that Willie made everyone paranoid with his town meeting, and now he believes he's mocking Wil. It just rubs him the wrong way. It really didn't appear like he was mocking him though, just a really good impression.

Frank goes down to talk to Jenn and Joe and tells theme he's worried the meeting might have hurt him more than helped him. We hear from Joe at this point, because of course we never hear from Jenn. He adds that Willie already told them he wants them to split the votes. This makes Frank a little hot, because Willie has told him he will fight hard to get him the votes that he needs to stay. He doesn't think he can trust him anymore. Duh.

Frank tells Joe about Willie repeating Wil's comment about the 24-hour break, and says he was mocking him. Joe is not happy at all and says that's not part of the game. Joe then corners Wil in the Storage Room and tells him what Frank said. Wil tells the DR he doesn't tolerate one ounce of anyone mocking anyone. He guarantees this will come back to bite Willie in the ass. He notes he's making gay slurs, and whether it's sectionist, racist, or homophobic, it's not right.

Wil goes and talks to Frank and Britney about it, but she still thinks Willie is a good person and a loyal guy. However, Britney goes to talk to Willie who is up in HoH with Ashley. She says this is because she loves him, but he's screwed. She explains the whole story about mocking Wil, and he says “I never done that!” Britney tells him Frank is turning the whole house against him. Willlie says it's crazy news, because he had Frank's back. He doesn't know what his agenda is, but it's pissing him off.

Willie goes outside to find Frank and tells him he's been tring to save him all week. Frank asks fires back at him, seemingly as if he was outside lying in wait for him. Willie mentions that now Frank is slinging his name in the dirt trying to make him look like an idiot. Frank points out he was promised he wouldn't be put up on the block, and now he's up on the block. This goes back and forth until Willie shouts that he hopes Frank goes home this week, because he's a shady [bleep].

Willie says he's a grown ass man, and when he wants to eat, he's going to go in and eat some Froot Loops, because that's what he wants to do. Frank isn't worried about him eating his Froot Loops. Willie tells everyone listening to vote for Kara to stay, because he hopes Frank goes home. Boogie jumps into it and asks why Willie is the boss of everyone and gets to tell them what to do. He then wanders off mocking Willie for eating Froot Loops. He asks everyone if they're willing to get bullied by willie, and Willie turns around and tells them not to follow Boogie until the end so he can cut their neck off. “Unreal, dude.”

So You Think You Can Dance, July 11 – A Fantastic Ending

I'm ready to get this party started. It's been too long of a wait. American Idol had its finale at the end of May, and here we are after the 4th of July and we haven't even started the competitive part of So You Think You Can Dance. It's time to get moving with it.

We start off with a group dance right away, to Architect of the Mind by Kerry Muzzey. Bear in mind the group dances used to be reserved for results night, but we won't have nights dedicated to results anymore. I hope this doesn't mean we'll do away with the beginning showing everyone introduced to a quick two- or three-second solo. It's a routine that has the guys in a business uniform of slacks, white shirts, and ties, and the girls in working women shirts/skirts combos. It's really a great routine, and I can't figure out who's choreographic mind this came from.

Ah-ha. Here's the familiar intro with the dancers each out for their quick solos. They're in different clothes than from the above, so this is all apparently not live. I don't remember some of these people after the two week break. Is it a new announcer? This part must be live, as he said, “This is So You … This is So You Think You Can Dance. Please welcome your host, Cat Deeley.” It turns out it was Christopher Scott as the choreographer behind the routine.

Our judges for the night will be Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy, and film director and choreographer Kenny Ortega. He's the one behind High School Musical and Michael Jackson's This Is It. Nigel announces that instead of voting for couples, we'll be voting for individuals. Next week, two guys and two girls will be leaving. Our votes will lead to the bottom three, and the judges will decide on which ones will leave after watching them dance a second time next week.

To introduce the dancers to us a little more, they'll each get nine seconds to tell us who they are. Witney Carson, 18, goes first. She plays guitar and drums, likes to play golf, has over one-hundred relatives, is afraid of crickets, and can do a flower with her tongue. Her partner is ballet dancer Chehon Wespi-Tschopp, 23. He was born in Chicago, but grew up in Switzerland, is a ballet dancer, and speaks in two languages.

Witney and Chehon are dancing the samba tonight, choreographed by Louis Van Amstel. He's looking for hot, hot movement. He wants them to shake their moneymakers. Witney says it's upbeat and flirty and exciting. She's a ballroom dancer, but knows it will be difficult for Chehon, since it's so different from ballet. Louis says in Brazil when they do the steps, all they do is shake. That's the very part Chehon struggles with. Louis admits it's a natural for Witney, while Chehon still looks like a pretty boy that he's going to somehow have to turn into a “masculine, hot dude.” They dance to Jump by The Cube Guys & Luciana. Chehon finds a way to move those hips convincingly. I'd say they have some good chemistry together.

Nigel calls it “lovely” to have Louis back on the show, and Louis returns the compliment by shimmying. Nigel believes he summed up Witney perfectly by calling her a firecracker. She looked like a star, danced like a star, and is a star. Chehon is a fantastic dancer, and he doesn't want to critique his style, but wants to give him some advance. As a ballet dancer, it gives him placement, brilliant technique, and a great core, which he'll need for every routine in the show. He needs to be careful, though to not overcompensate by turning his feet in. He needs to ejoy it more, as it's no longer classical. He wants him to just give into it more and enjoy the music

Mary thought it was a great routine, but also recognized Chehon's feet problems. However, when he corrects the feet issues, he is sailing with his body across the floor. He can really move and does it in a really dynamic way. As far as Witney, he thinks she's in need of some serious transportation. Of course she's on the hot tamale train, as she's been there from her first audition. She just got a first class ticket, although Nigel adds she is in her own genre. Kenny can't bring everyone back to earth, as Witney brought us into space. It was like Marilyn Monroe in Some Like it Hot, but was hotter. He wants Chehon to trust in the choreographers and believe in himself, as he's so talented.

Tiffany Maher, 19, is nicknamed T-Maher-Star, has baby hands, once had a pet duck, and likes laying on the beach. Her partner is George Lawrence II, 19, whose dad is George the I (natch). His favorite color is green, he loves collard greens, hates being outside, is camera shy, and had a pet frog. I wonder how her duck and his frog would get along.

The two partners will be taking on an emotional contemporary routine, choreographed by Sonya Tayeh. She explains the routine is about when the stars are aligned for two people, leading them to see each other for who they really are. Their love is so strong it takes their breath away. Their touch turns to butter and they melt into each other. They dance to Turning Page by Sleeping at Last, and turn it into a beautiful Sonya routine. It would be hard to seem that connected to someone who is still relatively new to you.

Mary is breathless after watching the routine, and mentions living in the moment. She points out what Kenny had said to her about surrendering themselves to their choreography, and they both did every second and with every nuance. She had great expectations for George, and he certainly didn't disappoint. He is one of the best in the competition and is phenomenal. Tiffany may be a teeny little thing, but the strength that she possesses was effortless. She believes this number connected with everyone.

Kenny can only imagine how much fun it was to be in the room with Sonya to come to understand the piece and interpret it, and how much joy Sonya must have had to watch Tiffany and George tonight. They did surrender and were so generous for each other and there for one another. It brought him back and reminded him of his youth and the pain of youth and glory of youth, and ability we have when we're young. They were breathtaking to watch. They spilled it.

Nigel can't remember that far back, but tells Sonya he remembers her being a quirky choreographer. Now she's going through a soft, romantic period, and has even grown her hair out. He thinks she's found love. Tiffany and George are a wonderful couple and dance right to the end of their fingertips, so that when she gives them a contraction, it means even more. He particularly loved the lift and vulnerability of giving themselves to each other.

Janaya French, 20, wants to meet Shamu, loves fuzzy socks, and hates orange socks and Chucky. She's partnered with Brandon Mitchell, 27, from Kansas City, Kansas, who is severely allergic to cats and dogs, and whose little brother just set the world record in the long jump for 8-year-olds. Well, that last one isn't really about him, is it?

These two will be taking on hip-hop with Napoleon and a very pregnant Tabitha D'Umo. The story is about a guy who is an alcoholic who must choose between the bottle and the love of his life. They can't do the routine unless they're on the same page. Brandon knows this is the type of piece that could touch people's lives, but he knows they're not quite at that point with it yet. They dance the routine to Take Care by Drake (feat. Rihanna). As a contemporary routine it would be awesome, as a hip hop routine it puts another interesting element onto it. By the way, he makes the right choice in the end.

Kenny tells Tabitha and Napoleon that he loves watching hip hop turning into a deeper language, and to be able to tell a story with it is refreshing, exciting, and promising. He believed every word of the story as if Janaya and Brandon were speaking. He felt the frustration, struggle, the love, and the desire to help this guy.

Nigel believes Tabitha and Napoleon were very clever, as they didn't expose the rough and toughness that usually comes with hip hop. They smoothed it out, which allowed them to get away with certain things. Janaya needs to lower her core in hip hop, but was pleased Brandon chose her over the vodka. If someone would ask him to choose Mary or vodka, he'd choose Mary every single time … because he only drinks Scotch whiskey. Mary doesn't comment on that, but says she loved how deeply Brandon went into character making it completely believable. Janaya needed to be more gritty and should have shown herself fighting for this relationship. Nigel asks them to pull their socks up and do even more.
