Quickie Poll

It's pretty safe to say this jury will very likely be the most bitter we've ever seen on Big Brother. All season long, they proclaimed their hatred for the Donatos, and now they have to fork it over.

For them, I believe it's definitely going to come down to a lesser of two evils vote. They may couch it in "I'm voting for the best strategic game player," but come on... Ultimately, I think they'll give the money to the Donato they hate the least.

Below are 2 polls. Please let us know who you think the jury will give the money to in the first poll, and how you think the vote will be split in the second. If you'd like to get specific - which jury member will vote how - please do so in the comments section here on the blog.

OK, so this is how I think it will go, when the jury members speak with the D's by satelite, Dick will exibit the talent he doesn't even know he has...his true endearing honesty, and in the end, this will win over more of the jury than Dani. All season, even after being a total jacka** to most of the houseguests, he truly does have the ability to connect with them and share his true feelings in a gentle manner. Dani, I think, will come off to them as bored, bratty and unacessable and this will just piss them off.
Because of it being a true situation of "the lesser of two evils" to most of them, the final vote will be based on today, and with that, Dick has the upper hand.

I agree with Julie that today will be a deciding factor for the jury. I see it boiling down to three scenarios.

a. The jury are all feeling personally angered by the Donato triumph. At the "hearing" today the evicted HG's attack the Donato duo with personal questions. Dick can't hold himself back and he goes off on everyone about how he doesn't care to answer their questions because either way he wins. Dani will sit back and smirk, answer wittily, and come off as the lesser of the two evils. His over excited behavior will cause most to vote for Dani.

In this case I see it looking like this:

5:2 for Dani

b. The jury have all come to the conclusion that personal opinions have no place in the verdict process. The jury asks GAME related questions that do not set Dick off on a whirlwind. Dick answers with solid, charming answers and Dani gets a little awkward. The jury decides that while Dani has won more comps, Dick has manipulated the houseguests more and had better game in terms of a combination of strategies.

In this case I see it looking like this:

5:2 for Dick

c. The jury is split with some insisting on casting a strategic vote based on game play, and others feeling so ticked off, will vote for whoever they like better overall.

In this case I see it looking like this:

4:3 for Dani

I can't say that I think one of these three is more likely... except for the fact that Jen will NEVER vote for Dick. I think Zach could go either way as well as Amber perhaps. Jameka will most likely vote for Dani and I think Jessica is probably going to lean towards Dick (especially if America chose him since Eric was tasked with campaigning for one of them). A whole lot is riding on what questions are asked and how D&D answer.

I happen to like them both and will not be disappointed if either of them win. There are arguments to support either choice. If I were forced to chose one though, it would be Dick. The deciding factor or me is that he invested a lot of his time getting to know most of them and certainly did a lot of Dani's dirty work!

Also, I think Dick is going to LOVE the AP twist and I think him and Eric will carry on a friendship outside of the house. The two of them were my favorite team this season when Eric finally surrendered his game to America.

We'll see how the jury/DD exchange goes today (tomorrow night CBS?), but as things stand right now, I think the "Js" will vote for Dani, and the rest will vote for Dick...4-3.

interesting poll results...

in the dick v dani - it's a 50-50 split.

in the jury votes poll, dick is definitely leading...

i tend to view poll #2 as the likeliest to be more accurate...

Zach and Jameka are toss ups. Dick really rubbed both of them the wrong way but I think they respect that it worked and he made F2. Jen will NEVER give a vote to Dick. Amber thinks she and Dani have a connection. Jess said in a convo with Eric a few weeks back that she'd give it to Dick over Dani, plus if he votes that way, so will she. I think Dustin will give it to Dick for being the best strategically.

Everyting Dick said and did was from a father's perspective for the benefit of his daughter.I have come to realize that Daniele is the queen of ice and I would rather see her father in control of the money so she remains his "buddy".Because Daniele has only been nice to anyone including her Dad for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If she does get her pot of gold, I don't see this backstabber splitting it fairly with her father.. as I assume was the agreement struck for their alliance.

Sorry this is off the subject, but does anyone know how the BB producers found the rivals/enemies for the "twist"? I can't figure out how they find these people and keep it secret until show?? Like the "ex" twist a few seasons back? And the one with Nakomis & Cowboy?? Carolyn, any ideas??

Doc Rocket- you are right on with your possibilities :)

Dick's heart on his sleeve honesty means he speaks what he feels- so a lot will depend on what he's feeling during the questions. If he feels attacked- or moreover if he feels anyone is attacking DANIELE- he will go off. He will insult everyone and be cocky and turn a lot of people off.

Hopefully he'll be relaxed now that the pressure's off - he needs to be more subtle- if he's smart he will play up the "I'm so glad I had a chance to connect with my daughter, and that's the real prize.." that's the only way he will win over people like Amber and Jameka (and maybe Jess). He should also point out that he's the only player in BB history to be on the block and use the veto to take the OTHER player off the block, which left him very vulnerable, and enabled Dani to continue in the game. That will win over the "I like a big game player" folks who otherwise might be looking at Daniele's quantity over Dick's quality wins.

I think you all are underestimating Jen though- I think she and Dick actually would have been ripe for an alliance, and had a strange bond. Don't forget she voted to keep him in the house, and at that point he'd already been horrible to her...

Jen- odd duckie who LOVED her unitard- who was hard to rattle even when Dick poured iced tea on her or called her names- could easily forgive and forget and say that she's voting for Dick because he was the best of the best, the most evil (evel), and the one who managed to get her out of the house- and we know her high opinion of herself, right? She didn't like Daniele- they had that girl rivalry thing over Nick when Jen claimed he kissed her- she was jealous of Dani, and don't forget that Dani went back on her word to Jen. Dick was a jerk, but Daniele "BETRAYED" Jen, and girls like her don't forget that. I think Jen won't be happy with her choices, but I think she'll vote Dick all the way.

Votes I think are solid:
Jen's vote- Dick
America's vote- Dick
Jameka's vote- Dani (she's the "better person")
Amber's vote- Dani (better person, and got to know her on P of 10 trip)

2 to 2

Iffy votes:
Zach's vote- Dani (due to convos w Jameka that he would take her to end because she was a better person and deserved money more, but I think Dick's determination in the HOH Bunny Hop may have impressed him. He may easily flip to Dick as the better player- his ego will only allow him to lose to the BEST player, not #2 who shivered through the bunny hop)

Dustins vote- Dani (spent more time talking with Dick, but at sequester house he was really hoping Dick would come through the door so I don't know?)

Jessicas vote- Dick (will want to vote for Dani but will probably be swayed by Eric- but Amber and Jameka might get to her too...)

...which would give Dani a 4-3 win, but again, Amber or Jameka could be swayed by a passionate Dad speech, and Dustin and Zach may listen to Eric's arguments too why Dick should win- "he outlasted us all- he played mean, but it was effective". (Every poll I've seen indicates that Dick will be AP pick, so that's why I'm assuming that's a given).

Who should win, Dick, but I think Dani probably will, Zach's going to be the swing vote either way. And I'd bet the farm on Jen voting for Dick- I can't wait to see if I'm right! Also can't wait for the AP reveal...

I believe Dick will take it with one vote... merely because AP vote and campaign and there is no doubt America will vote in favor of Dick over Dani.

That would please me... since a dad can share with his kids and not have to be punished as severely with taxes.

I am a bit perplexed...

Last night due to boredom and withdrawal I watched yesterday's House Calls with Alison Grodner. There were some interesting points there. We will se the Jury deliberations on Tuesday, for sure. CBS knows many people are watching the Emmy's and Sunday is a recap of the season. The first ever! A lot of drama this year.

Timeline is confusing...

Q&A with Jury is tonight... but I guess round table with Jurors may be tomorrow. Why? Well, Eric won't know who to campaign for until about 9 PM PST this evening and I believe the Q&A is before then. He needs to campaign to fulfill his job as AP.

Also, Grodner said that at no time during the season of BB8 did Eric have a choice not to do certain things, because then he would be in breach of contract and lose all his earnings. This is why his role as AP is definitely not known as of now.

The AP will be revealed between the actual voting and the reveal of votes on Tuesday.

Dick was funny last night when he was talking about going to Europe and ride his 'new' Harley (that he wants to buy) next month. Then he muttered to himself:

"It rains a lot. It will be cold. That's the last thing I am looking for after THIS... being wet and cold".

However, he's waiting for his Irish citizenship to be processed. Dick again: "Unless they have seen me being a dick".

FYI, VIncen't mentioned in the chat with Nick and Janelle earlier this summer that somebody had offered to totally fix up his (D's) Harley and make it like new as a gift for the entertainment this summer... so hopefully he won't have to buy a new one.

My take is a 4-3 on voting with Dick as the winner.

Why I chose these four because I really think they will vote who was the best player this season and in my opinion that was Dick.

These three would rather die than to give their votes to Dick,who they deem as the devil incarnate.

For me, much to the chagrin of the many nasties who let me know about it all the time, it's all about creating community, no matter what our endeavor... and creating a community real people can enjoy.

Let the rest of the www bash each other.

With having the Donato's win , BB8 ended last thurs.
Like evil Dick said, the final night doesn't mean a thing, they know they won it all.
There's no competition at all on tues.
On an other note, isn't there a rule that they can't share the winnigs, or am I wrong , was it Survivor that had that rule?

2:32 PM  
Blogger Carolyn said...

georgette - you are correct. there is a rule that says they cannot share the winnings. there is a way around it though: "gift" giving is fine. Alison Grodner talks about this during her housecalls interview. i strongly recommend giving it a look.
