Willie Hantz has left the Big Brother game.
On Friday, the live 24 hour Internet feeds went black suddenly for over three hours. When the feeds returned Willie Hantz, the brother of Survivor’s Russell Hantz, had left the house and Willie’s demoralized team were licking their wounds in the Have Not bedroom.
Shane Meaney, the 26-year-old house flipper and JoJo Spatafora, the 26-year-old bartender sat with their Coach, Britney mulling over their dire situation.
“Willie screwed all three of us,” grumbled Britney.
“I f-----g hate him,” spat JoJo, who at one time was Willie’s closest partner in the game. “I never want to see him again.”
“Now we are a man down,” groaned Britney.
“It is what it is. We are going to fight,” said Shane.
JoJo gave Britney a hug to comfort her before the meeting ended.
Shane and JoJo were nominated by this week's Head of Household: Frank.
“Don’t feel bad, please,” said JoJo to Britney.
Moments later in the kitchen, Wil commented on Willie’s actions.
“I cannot believe he threw it all away,” he said.
“He f----d us over so bad,” replied an angry JoJo. “I am just glad that he is gone.”
JoJo confirmed later in the evening that CBS has banned Willie from the finale, reunion show and the wrap party.
As Head of Household last week, Willie threw the hour into turmoil by starting a newbie mutiny against the Coaches and his bitter falling out with his former alliance pal, Frank.
Not sure if Janelle may have been joking or not, but in an HoH conversation with Britney, Frank, Boogie, Ashley and Joe, she "told" the live feeders that Willie threw pork rinds at her while screaming obscenities at her. He also kicked the Have Not room door and may or may not have head butted Joe.
Joe still wished the guy well, and hope he gets help figuring out who he really is, as the blow up that happened was really scary. Britney was concerned about his temper troubles, and regretted ever trusting him. She also said she hopes Willie figures out his issues, so that he doesn't explode somewhere else in an uncontrolled environment.
It's looking pretty rough for Britney's team right now, and I think it may come down to Janelle and Boogie's team. Boogie, Frank and Joe have confirmed that Shane is the big target to go home because of his ability to win at physical competitions.
In response to the news, Willie's nephew and former Survivor player - Brandon Hantz - posted a video on YouTube.
In it, Brandon defends his uncle saying he was under a lot of pressure and being lied about in the house.
"He's my family. He's my blood. He's my uncle. I am going to go to bat for him," said Brandon. "I don't care what kind of situation it is, if it is Big Brother or whatever, these are real people who have real feelings."
