Crazy Devin Shepherd continues his rampage

Feeling a bit swamped I have no time to write this morning. None-the-less I feel like I have to write something because last night’s episode of Big Brother was off the hook! Full of twists and turns as you would expect during a week where the house is controlled by an unstable HOH like Devin Shepherd.

We all know he entered this week with Brittany as his target for very personal reasons.  This started to backfire on him as some of The Bomb Squad and other houseguests realized that strategically Paola was the better person to vote out.  With Paola and Brittany still on the block after The Battle of the Block all hell began to break loose in the house as people took to Brittany’s defense.

I hate to break it to Devin, but the house has a point. Brittany is a strong competitor and really not a threat to anyone’s game as of right now. If handled correctly she could be a good ally for many in the house. unfortunately for Devin he hasn’t been handling her correctly.

Brittany showed some great social game as she worked to win over Devin.  She might not like the guy, but she knew the necessary evil.  Knowing he is a parent and holds that over everyone’s heads she tried to relate to him on that level and it seemed to work.

TO make matters better for Brittany, Devin called a Bomb Squad meeting that ended up in an explosive nature.  From what I can see the Bomb Squad is divided:

  • Amber, Cody, Zach, Frankie, Christine

standing against

  • Devin, Caleb

The issue is that Devin is in power and is unstable.  Zach and the other teammates spoke up to Devin and quickly found out that he is not a team player and will not condone contrary opinions.

In a shocking move Devin removed Brittany from the block and placed Zach on the block for disagreeing with him.  Game changing move.

The Bomb Squad has exploded and tonight’s episode should air exactly what the fall out will be. Devin now has the largest target on his back of all season.

The way I see it is that if Devin really wanted to be bold and say “F You” to all those who disagreed with him, wanted to keep Brittany, but also he wanted to prove a point of his power… he should have removed Paola and replaced her with Zach. That would have put the player he wanted out, Brittany, up against an alliance member. He would have got Brittany out and stirred the pot. At least he could have won something in that scenario.  Now he just stands to have Paola leave and Zach on attack mode.

I also feel like he is setting a horrible example for his daughter, something he feel passionately about. Showing his daughter that colleagues, friends or allies cannot have a dissenting opinion makes you seem a bit like a dictator or tyrant. Your alliance members aren’t out to get you until you make them.  You aren’t the leader of the alliance, you are a team.  Their opinions, even if contradictory to yours, should matter.

Tonight’s episode is sure to be explosive and you won’t want to miss it!
