Shane Meaney was a HouseGuest on Big Brother 14. Shane was a member of Team Britney in the Coaches twist. In the house, Shane proved himself to be a threat, winning three consecutive Power of Veto competitions within the first three weeks and eventually becoming the second male HouseGuest in Big Brother history to win six overall competitions (2 HoH's and 4 PoV's) following Frank Eudy. On Day 69, Shane became the replacement nominee when Head of Household Danielle decided to take Dan off the block with the Power of Veto. He was then blindsided when Dan cast the sole vote to evict him. As a result, Shane placed 4th and became the sixth member of the Jury.
