Dan asks Boogie if he already told Frank the house had turned against him, and Boogie admits he did. Dan realizes he made a big mistake in telling Boogie this, which, duh. Meanwhile, Shane’s still complaining that he got totally screwed last week. Well, dude, making out with the new Head of Household is certainly not going to get rid of the massive target on your back. Danielle, for her part, doesn’t like Janelle, which is a random rivalry that came out of nowhere. I guess there aren’t many girls left in the house, so the catty ones have fewer targets to fight with.
Britney asks Frank and Boogie what she’s missed, and Boogie tells her about the get-rid-of-Frank plan. Britney acts totally shocked, and I actually believe her for a second, until she explains in the Diary Room that she’s pissed someone spilled the beans. She grabs Shane and tells him that they need to talk to Danielle and Dan and shore up that alliance, while also managing Frank and Boogie. Uh oh, look at Britney, doing pretty well! She goes back to Frank and Boogie and basically says, “I don’t know what’s going on!” over and over, playing the dumb blonde card.
“I literally don’t even know what this thing in my hand is. A hamburger? I don’t know anything!”
Danielle and Britney corner Dan, and he admits he told Boogie and apologizes. And then it’s time to see the HoH room, always the least exciting part of the Sunday episodes. “I can’t stand this girl,” grumbles Grandpa Boogie as they head up, and then we get several minutes of looking at pictures of Danielle’s family and listening to her mom’s letter. Strangely, we learn that Danielle didn’t tell her parents she was going on Big Brother, which is pretty hilarious. “I’ll just let them think I disappeared for 3 months, they’ll be fine.” Danielle may turn out to be a sociopath. Shane says he’s excited to see Danielle’s family and room, but I mostly just think he loves it when a room is redecorated.
We have the first official meeting of the Dan/Danielle/Britney/Shane alliance up in the Head of Household room, and they all agree that Frank, Boogie, Janelle, and Wil are the top four threats to their alliance. Dan tells us in the Diary Room that he doesn’t want a former coach nominated yet, because he needs them to act as shields for him, so he proposes Wil and Frank as nominations. Later downstairs, however, Wil reminds Danielle that she promised him safety. Danielle tries to figure out what to do, but it looks like her poor little brain can’t handle much more of this.
Danielle: don’t do motions like this. You make it too easy for recappers.
Whimsical tuba music means it’s time for some lighthearted filler! Ian is continuing his pursuit of Ashley outside, which, dude: give it up. She’s not going to sleep with you. This is embarrassing. Things get worse when Shane proceeds to do shirtless workouts not five feet away from them, which is just awkward under any circumstance, but especially because Ashley can’t tear her eyes off of him. “I was lifting the same amount of weight earlier, except I wasn’t struggling,” Ian jokes to a totally unhearing Ashley. Awwww. Poor Ian. I thought your joke was funny! And, if it makes you feel better, Shane’s display is probably more for your benefit, anyway.
