Thanks! What a week! Another crazy few days in the Big Brother house… not to mention that I've gotten to sleep upstairs for two straight weeks now :P. Getting the Quack Pack to the end together definitely wasn't easy at all, and though we did lose Britney along the way, we still managed to get 80% of our alliance to the Final 5.

Though I don't know a whole lot of what's going to happen in the next few days, it seems as if the Quack Pack will make its mark as one of the most successful alliances in the history of Big Brother. QP is the alliance that I'd always dreamed of and even planned out before coming on the show. Shane, with his athletic prowess, was able to combat Frank in several competitions. Dan, was older and wiser than the rest of us, and able to impart some of his Big Brother wisdom on us. Danielle was able to use her Southern charm and determination to succeed in many situations we faced in the house. Britney, while she was with us, used her persuasive tongue to get what we needed during the week Frank nominated Wil and Joe. I somehow brought this group together, founded it, did some strategizing, and got information from our opponents that we could use against them. QP was the perfect Big Brother alliance combination, especially since unconditional trust held the group together. Even though I know that this alliance will soon become a fierce two-on-two match between the Renegades and the Couple, I'm thrilled to have taken part in the QP!

Evicting Frank from the house was a tremendous relief for me and the rest of the Quack Pack, and I hope that he isn't too bitter about the whole situation. I seriously thought I would never see the day when his picture turned to grayscale. I will say that I am definitely disappointed in Joe's eviction. It really shouldn't have been him, but as Dan said, "It's either your hand or mine."

Now that I'm done with this Quack-Pack related bragging, I'd like to move to a more serious topic.

11 years ago today, America was faced with the largest attack on our country's soil in history. It seems like just yesterday I was sitting in my 2nd period Social Studies class as a 5th grader when I found out the news that turned my life (and most of America's lives) upside-down. I ask that anybody reading this take a moment to reflect on the lives of those lost in the tragedies and on the family and friends of those victims as well.

I'd like to shout-out to my friends, family, and all of the eliminated BB14 HouseGuests.

Best, IPT
