The Power of Veto ceremony on Big Brother is usually a predictable affair. If one of the nominees won it, they will save themselves. If not, it probably won't get used. This week is more predictable than usual.

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 14 spoilers.

Frank nominated JoJo and Shane and Shane won the Power of Veto.

Shane saved himself and Danielle was nominated.

And so begins the painfully predictable week. Boogie and Janelle's teams are working together (Boogie has dubbed them the Eight is Enough Alliance since, counting the two coaches, there are eight of them). So by process of elimination, Danielle was the ONLY person Frank could've nominated.

But she's the pawn as it seems everyone wants JoJo out. Janelle and her team want JoJo out, but they're afraid that if they say that then Frank and Boogie will find it suspicious and go against them. Ironically, Frank and Boogie ALSO want JoJo out.

Of course Frank and Boogie are also trying to shore up Shane's support, convincing him that they want to work with him. Of course they basically want to use him as a fourth vote to turn against Janelle's team when the time is right.

This is the big problem with the season, and the reason I'm already bored with how predictable Big Brother 14 is. It's a team game and there's no changing that. Boogie is completely controlling Frank, Ian and Jenn while Janelle is controlling Wil, Joe and Ashley. It's become impossible to break up either of those teams, so the other HGs need to align with a team, not with an individual.

Even worse, the coaches are manipulating everything. Last night on the live feeds Boogie and Dan had a long chat about strategy and how everything will go down. Neither of them are actually playing this game, but they were talking as if the newbies are chess pieces they can make do whatever they want. It was depressing because they weren't wrong.

The coaches have taken complete control of this game and the newbies have let it happen. It has become a boring, predictable game. There's no way for JoJo to survive this week because it's not a matter of getting a few votes. At this point, Boogie and Janelle's teams are voting together. So when Thursday comes, it will either be a 5-1 vote or a 6-0 vote.

Watching a bunch of sheep blindly go along with their teams makes for incredibly boring and awful television. Big Brother 14 needs to shake things up in a major way next week. Because right now I can barely stomach the dull live feeds.
