This week's Big Brother
was clearly dominated by the Renegades. To recap, Dan
won Head of Household (HoH) and cooked up a scheme to nominate Jerry
in an effort to keep their alliance a secret. Additionally, Dan won the luxury competition while Memphis won Power of Veto (PoV) and took himself off the block.
Read on for this week's best of the Big Brother 10
Dan and his trip
Dan decided not to take a current houseguest for the luxury trip because it will only cause tension and will tip-off his alliance in the house. Instead, he opted to go with Michelle
, the jury member he most grievously wronged when he back-doored her. However, Dan cleverly told the houseguests that he had a choice of taking one of them or going alone, completely leaving out anything about the jury houseguests. He apologized and told them he wanted to go alone so as not to create animosity in the house and everyone was surprisingly fine with his decision. When Dan returned from his trip, he immediately described what happened at the private island, leaving out the fact that he invited Michelle as an opportunity to sway her vote.
Keesha on the block
After Memphis won PoV, he took himself off the block, leaving Dan the decision to put Keesha up as a replacement. Initially, Keesha was fine with being nominated because she knows that Dan has no choice but to put her up and she was just thrilled to know that Jerry is going home. Eventually, however, she started to feel unsafe because Jerry was being so nice to her (because he knows he's staying) while Memphis kept running away from her whenever she confronted him about being voted out.
Interestingly, Dan became Keesha's knight in shining armor. He comforted her and put the blame on Memphis by saying that the plan was to evict Jerry but that when he left for the luxury competition, Memphis changed his mind. He hugged her and let her eat his food and eventually let her sleep upstairs with him so she wouldn't have to be around Memphis. (Dan is a genius.) Keesha tearfully thanked Dan for his support and promises him her vote and that she'll work for him in the jury house.
