Big Brother 15, Episode # 10 – Playing the Game Too Hard Too Soon Can Backfire on You!

Hey Readers!

I have to apologize for my lateness in these BB 15 posts.  My family and I escaped the city for the almost a week due to the heat wave and a lack of A/C in our home.  I made sure to at least keep up with this show, so I could do my posts once I got back.

Back to BB 15, in this episode, we find out which of the Mom Squad’s nominees is going to be sent packing.  Aaryn has ticked everyone, both in and out of the House, so most people wouldn’t care to see her leave the game.  Jeremy has been pushing the House Guests around, and has been able to win competitions to save himself.  That is a dangerous combination to have walking around the House to win the $500 000 prize.  Spencer, well, he hasn’t been too much of a threat, besides to Amanda and McCrae’s game.  Which of these three actually gets the heave ho?  Keep reading and you’ll see!

While Spencer laid low throughout this episode, Aaryn and Jeremy took the kiss butt and make any deal necessary in order to stay in the House route.  Aaryn confessed that she and Jeremy didn’t deserve to be on the block this week because there were so many other wimps that should be there instead of them.  Well, Aaryn, if those “wimps’ deserved to be on the block, then why did you not win the PoV to save yourself, or why didn’t Jeremy win the HoH Competition to continue your tirade/rule on the House?  Maybe you two are not as great as you think you are!

Jeremy began his “Save Me” campaign by showing his softer side.  He was joking around with people in the House, and even put on a baby suit to try to get the House to forget his past transgressions.  He even began makig deals with Amanda and McCrae, telling them he would guarantee their safety for the rest of the game.  Aaryn took the same approach, dancing around the House, and trying to get cozy with those who she tormented the week before.  It was quite sad to see them do just about anything to get the House on their side.

Jeremy put on his serious face and went to speak to Helen in the HoH Room to see if she could help his cause.  With Elissa present, he proposed that if he was spared this week, that the Mom Squad would be protected by him for the rest of the game.  Helen asked Jeremy who should be put on the block next week should Jeremy win the HoH Competition.  Jeremy said that Aaryn and Kaitlin could go back up on the block.  Helen also wanted for Jeremy to get rid of is super confident attitude, and become a more humble Jeremy.   Jeremy said he would do anything to stay.  Helen and Elissa were considering Jeremy’s offer.

During the Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony, when given the chance by Julie Chen to give their last words, Jeremy said he enjoyed playing the game, and that he was a champ.  Aaryn thanked everyone for the time they spent together.  Spencer thanked his supporters at home, and the House Guests for a great summer.  Here are the results of the votes:

Spencer – 1; Aaryn – 0; Jeremy – 9.

Yet another strong male player has left the game so early!  I’m not sure if this is a record.  I’ll update my post when I find out.  After 15 seasons of Big Brother, you’d think Jeremy would know that excessive arrogance doesn’t always get you far in this game!  I hope Aaryn has learned this lesson, too!

BB Royalty was the name of this week’s HoH Competition.  The House Guests had to guess who America thought which description best fit which House Guests.  The player standing at the end, without any wrong answers, would be the next HoH.  After six rounds, and a three-way tie- breaker question, Judd shot out of the shadows to become the new HoH!

This win shocked me.  Judd didn’t seem to have it in him to win an HoH, but he pulled it out!  Congrats, Judd!  Since he’s a Floater in the House, this will have a huge impact on his game-play.  His nominations will let the House know which side he’s on.  He’ll also be creating enemies he probably didn’t want to make just yet.  Julie Chen also announced that America would be the MVP this week, so they get to choose the third nominee to go on the block. Who will Judd choose for Eviction?  Can Judd handle the responsibilities and stress of being HoH?  Will the power shift once again in the House?  Pop back in to my blog to find out.

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 14, Episode #22 – Hell Hath No Fury….

Hey Hey Readers!

This episode of BB was amazing, at least for me it was.  It was another Double Eviction Night where two houseguests would be leaving the BB House. Frank and Joe were on the block, and Dan was setting Britney up to be blindsided by being evicted from the House.  Does Dan’s plan come to frution, or will Britney dodge this eviction?  You can find out by continuing to read this post!

Britney and Ian were shocked by what just happened.  They never expected for Dan to have tried to backdoor Britney, not this soon, anyway.  Britney then went to Dan, first to congratulate Dan on saving himself, then warned him to be mindful of how he treated people in this game.

Britney then went to work, seeking out Frank in his HoH Room.  Along with Jenn, Britney does not fault them for what had just happened.  Britney said to them she thought they did this because it was payback for Ashley’s eviction.  She also let the two of them know that she would be able to help them get further in the game if they helped to save her this week.  Britney does have the ability to help Jenn and Frank because she has Shane and Ian in her pocket.

Ian and Frank got into a yelling match over Boogie’s eviction.  Frank was calling Ian’s character out to the rest of the House, saying that Ian was sneaky, and that no one should trust him.  Ian defended himself.  Ian also mentioned to the House that anyone would be a fool to take Frank to Final Two because the Jury would vote for Frank to win.  Frank responded by saying everyone in the House already knew this, that Ian was basically wasting his breath.

Britney started a tirade on Dan.  She told anyone who would listen that Dan is willing to do anything to stay in the House, even slit the throats (figuratively speaking) of other houseuests to get to the end.  Frank heard all of this and was happy because Britney was helping to increase the size of the target on Dan’s back, taking some of the heat off of himself.

At the Live Vote and Eviction, Danielle just said how much she enjoyed playing the game, and wanted to continue playing.  Britney pretty much chewed Dan out, calling him her “Judas.”  The vote was 4-1 for Britney to be evicted.  Yeah, you would have thought that Shane would have voted for her, but I guess he figured that having Danielle on his pinky was more advantageous to him than a stronger player like Britney.

Soak Up the Sun was the next HoH Competition.  Each player had to hold onto a rope swing that rotated around a huge sun on the BB lawn in the backyard.  The player that stayed on their swing the longest would be the next HoH.  There was also a consequence for the first person who dropped off of their swing.  This punishment was decided by the viewers on Twitter.

Am I bitter about Britney’s eviction?  No.  I just think Shane had better watch his back from now on because he’s disillustioned if he thinks otherwise.  Danielle’s true loyalty is to Dan, not to him.  I can’t wait for Shane to get his wake-up call, telling him he made a mistake while he’s being stabbed in the back by Danielle and on his way to the Jury House.  How will Britney’s eviction affect the rest of the Quack Pack?  How much more damage will Dan inflict on the House?  Who will be this week’s HoH?  Find out the answers to all of these questions the next time I write about BB 14!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 14, Episode #16 – Showmance Over?

Hey Readers!

It’s another Eviction Night! Yes, this horrible week with Frank as HoH will come to an end.  Don’t get me wrong, he’s a good competitor and all, but when you pretty much have all the power in this game for a week and you don’t flex it strategically, that bothers me.  It was a waste of a week.  He even had the numbers to do what he wanted with the Floaters (Ashley, Joe, Wil and Jenn), as well as Boogie (he would have gone along with it even if he didn’t like it), yet he chose to do what Boogie wanted, again.  Even though he doen’t make any big moves to help his BB game, he does bust a move that could end a showmance in the House.  Let’s see how he managed to do this, as well as who gets evicted this week.

After the PoV Ceremomy, all of the players in the BB House were scrambling, wondering who they were going to evict this week.  Many of them realized they had to win the HoH Competition to make sure Boogie wouldn’t get it.  They didn’t want another week of instability under Boogie and Frank’s thumb.

Frank and Dan discussed a Final Three Deal.  Dan also expessed how happy he was not to have been put on the block at the PoV Ceremony.  Frank was, well, frank in his response to Dan’s happiness.  He told Dan that he was seriously considering putting Dan on the block, but thought it was best for their alliance not to.  After hearing that, Dan trusted Frank even less than he did before.

Ashley wanted to see where Frank’s head was where voting was concerned.  She went up to the HoH Room, to chat about Wil’s situation in the House.  Frank informed Ashley that one of the reasons why Wil may be going this week was because he is an emotional player, and doesn’t always play strategically (Ex. – voting for Janelle to be evicted becuase she offended him without realizing she had done so, yet apologized for it.  Wil never got over it).  Once all of the unpleasantries were out of the way, Ashley spoke about how she missed having testosterone around her.  Frank took that as an invitation to ask her if she wanted to make-out with him.  Without much resistance, Ashley jumped on the Frank Tank and started making-out!  If that was a part of Ashley’s game-play, she had better be careful with Frank.  He doesn’t seem as though he’s the type to mix business and pleasure, if you know what I mean!

While all of that fun was happening, Ian, Ashley’s original “showmance” partner was wondering what was taking so long for Ashley to get the goods from Frank.  Oh, trust me, Ian, she was getting something good, but not in a way that would please you.  Ian asked Britany if that was what she thought was happening.  Britany was honest, sizing up Ian and his competition, and told him flat out that whatever the two of them had was done.  Ian was not too pleased with Britany’s reponse and proceeded to pout in the BB Backyard.

It’s as if the Live Vote and Eviction ceremonies are carbon copies of one another.  As usual, at this ceremony, there was the fill in the blank speech, thus time it was given by Wil, telling the houseguests to make a decision that was best for their game in the House.  At least Joe was Joe.  His speech went nowhere, and Julie Chen had to tell him he was yapping too much.  He eventually told everyone to keep it real, and he’d keep cooking for them if he stays.  The houseguests decided to keep the long-winded Joe, and Wil was evicted. 

The next HoH competition was called Swamped.  Each contestant had to go across their own slippery lane that looked as though it was ice covered with margarine in order to fill a large jar in order to win the HoH spot.  Here’s the catch, Readers: there were two other smaller jugs that were designed to tempt the players not to want to win HoH.  One was labelled “$10 000” and the other was “Safety.”  If any of the houseguests filled any one of these jugs before the HoH jug was filled, then that houseguest won either the money or safety for the week.  Once the larger HoH jug is filled, these temptations would no longer be up for grabs.  Sorry to tell you, Readers, but the episode ended while the competition was still happening.  I know, I hate when BB does that!

Who do you think will be victorious this week?  Will it be someone from one of the alliances in the House, or one of the Floaters?  Fingers, crossed, I’m hoping for someone new to occupy the HoH throne.Leave me a comment or send me an email with your thoughts!  I really want to know what you think will happen this week.

Until my next post, Readers!
