Then why on earth did the blogger give the ticket across instead of his BP?!

all to say that story doesn't line up.
To quote from the blog post (emphasis added):

She asked to see the tickets before allowing us further to checkin, then sweetened once we revealed them.

We submitted our boarding passes at the desk and were told we were not permitted entry because we had economy tickets by the second of two lounge attendants. Perplexed that agents hadn’t seen a mixed-cabin ticket before (two domestic segments in coach, four long haul segments in business class) we redirected to our boarding passes which plainly showed our seat assignments in Prestige Class and pushed back.
