This week on Big Brother 14
Frank Eudy went from nearly getting
evicted to the Head of Household. As his reign ends he's posted his HoH
blog at CBS
, providing insight into him as a player and a person.
And for me, the insight is that he's painfully dull and annoyingly upbeat. His blog is considerably longer than Willie's three-sentence, grammar-impaired nonsense last week. But all he does is ramble on and on about how he's such a huge fan of the show and how being in the house and playing the game is so cool and surreal.
Reading his blog, it's easy to picture Frank's face with his obnoxiously plastered-on grin. I realize there's no actual reason to hate him as much as I do, but his positivity and unending joy annoys me. He's the kind of guy who smiles at everything, who sees every obstacle as an opportunity and who uses the power of positive thinking to act like everything's OK. I mean, the dude is unemployed, so I'm not sure why he's so damn happy all the time.
Another thing that bothers me about Frank is that he's constantly driving home the point that he's a nice guy. Seriously, if you watch the live feeds, take a shot every time Frank refers to himself as a "nice guy" or a "good guy." He does it all the time, and anyone who needs to say those kinds of things over and over again rubs me the wrong way.
His blog also includes a shout-out to his six-person alliance with Ian, Jenn, Will, Joe and Ashley. Is he really dumb enough to think that alliance is going to last longer than this week? After Thursday's eviction there are only eight players left in the game (until whatever new twist unfolds and, more likely than not, the coaches enter the game). You can't have a six-person alliance in a game of eight players, because sooner or later they will have to turn on one another.
Read Frank's HoH blog for yourself and decide if he's a brilliant strategic player or just an annoyingly upbeat person."Going from the block to the HOH room is definitely not a lateral move! Being a huge fan of the show made just competing in my first solo HOH competition an incredible experience, and winning my first HOH (hopefully many to follow) was just icing on the cake. I'm sure everyone is aware of the drama that has taken place in the Big Brother house over the last several days, especially somebody's self eviction, but as a fan of the show I do hate to see somebody leave the house in that manner. It would have much sweeter to send him home with the help of my current alliance this Thursday.
I wish I could ask everyone who reads this if I'm making good decisions and aligning with the right people. This house is like the twilight zone at times, I believe I started off down the wrong road and I hope now that I have corrected my course. The people with whom I am working are definitely a fantastic group of people (Ian, Jen, Wil, Ashley, and Joe) and completely diverse which makes our group very unique. Since I am a big fan of Big Brother its definitely pretty surreal to be playing the game with the coaches that helped make me such a fan. They are larger than life and as entertaining as I expected them to be!
Of course I want to send my love to Nana, Mom, Gunnar, Dad and all of my other family and friends. Jungle Juice Daniel and Zebra Cake Chris, I hope you like your new nicknames, you're definitely a hit in the house. David I hope you're taking good care of the house and not throwing too many pool parties.
If I can back it up a little bit, just being in the Big Brother house is a dream come true! For all the fans out there who have tried or want to try to get on, take it from me, sometimes you meet resistance but it was definitely worth the wait. Everyday in the house I wake up utterly grateful for the chance that I have been given, I wish I could describe the feeling of actually playing the game to all you fans out there! I hope that we're entertaining everyone more than enough (and not singing too much) and don't forget to eat your fruit loops!"
