Big Brother 15, Episode #23 – 25: The Writing’s on the Wall

Hello Readers!

I have to apologize for my lack of BB 15 posts, Readers.  The past few weeks have been filled with so many events that I’ve become behind on my BB 15 posts.   To save on time, I will condense this past week of BB 15 for you into one post.  This week of BB15 was so hard to watch.  There was only one real focus: Helen.  I kept smacking my hand against my forehead, asking Helen via my TV why can’t you see what’s happening? What happened to make me almost bruise my forehead in frustration?  Read on and you’ll see.

Episode #23

After winning her fourth HoH competition, Aaryn confessed she felt honoured to have accomplished this feat, but she was also worried she would be made to do someone else’s dirty work, getting blood on her hands.

Amanda was still complaining about not being able to win any competition she played in so far this season, even when McCrae threw the last challenge to make Amanda happy. McCrae made the mistake of telling Amanda he wasn’t going to throw any more competitions for Amanda to win because he wanted to try and hold onto the power in this game as much as possible. This information angered Amanda for two reasons: Amanda wanted McCrae to be able to show trust in the others un their alliance (Aaryn and Andy); and she wanted McCrae to help her win something so she didn’t look like a looser. Amanda then stormed out of the Have-Not Room to have her baby hissy-fit in the Storage Room.

Amanda and McCrae  spoke with Aaryn in her HoH Room about nominations.  Aaryn wanted to nominate Elissa and Spencer, but the happy couple wanted someone else to take Spencer’s place on the block: Helen.  They wanted Helen to think Elissa was the target, to not to win the Veto, and not see what was going to happen until it was too late.  Aaryn, on board with this plan gave everyone in their alliance, 3 AM a codename.  Amanda was the Mastermind for obvious reasons.  Andy was the Agent because he brought information back to the group no one else would.  Aaryn was the Beast because she was good at winning competitions.  McCrae was called the Enforcer because he was able to convince people to do what he wanted.

Helen was sad because Elissa didn’t think she wanted to be in the game anymore if she ended up being evicted this week.  Elissa told her she wouldn’t be part of the Jury, and would go home instead.  Helen made the big mistake of telling this to the 3 AM alliance while sobbing.  They were all trying to convince Helen anymore in order to turn Helen against her.  3 AM were all secretly laughing at Helen, as Helen was the actual target, and Helen should have been worried about herself, and not Elissa.

After a lot of harping from Helen, as she was under the impression that Elissa was this week’s target, Elissa went to Aaryn to see if she could change her mind about putting her on the block.  After a bunch of babbling on about her yoga mat issues, Aaryn was more convinced than ever to put Elissa in harm’s way.

Have/Have-Not Competition: The Black Box

Team Orange (Spencer, McCrae, Andy and Aaryn) and Team Green (Amanda, GinaMarie, Helen and Elissa) had to go as a team into a pitch black room created in the BB Backyard and find a key amongst some crazy vasts of objects and a slimy floor.  They then had to race outside and unlock the buzzer to stop the timer that was keeping how long it took them to complete the task.  The team that did this in the longest amount of time were Have-Nots for the week.  Team Orange blazed through the competition, making Team Green the Have-Nots for the week.

Nomination Ceremony

At the Nomination Ceremony, it was no surprise who Aaryn put up for Eviction this week.  Yep, Helen and Elissa were on the block against each other.  3 AM wanted the Mom Squad to forget about their alliance and to start fighting against each other.

Episode #24

Helen, still wearing her rose-tinted glasses, thought her Final Three deal with Andy and McCrae was still intact.  What about the Mom Squad?  Where was Elissa in your plans, Helen?  Even though Helen wasn’t thinking of Elissa in her future plans, she wanted to help Elissa get through this week by advising her about keeping her behaviour, especially where Aaryn is concerned, in check.

Elissa interrupted Amanda and McCrae’s make-out session to ask about the nominations.  Since Amanda’s fun time was cut short, she felt like messing with the Mom Squad by pitting Elissa against Helen.  Luckily, Elissa didn’t fall for Amanda’s fake words of advice.

Veto Player Selection Meeting

These were the players competing in this week’s Veto competition:

Aaryn (HoH), Helen (Nominee), Elissa (Nominee), Spencer, GinaMarie and Andy ( their names were drawn out of a hat; Andy was Elissa’s choice).

Power of Veto Competition – OTEV

This season’s OTEV was a heart-broken beaver who had written love letters to certain evicted House Guests, but had lost them.  In each round, OTEV would give clues as to which letter he wanted the players to find in a forestry-bog-like setting in the BB Backyard.  The last player back to OTEV, either because they could not find a letter, empty-handed because the letters were found, or they found the wrong letter, was eliminated.  The winner would then receive the Veto.  Elissa must have put on her Reilly Ring of Power for this competition, because she was diving under water, and tackling people out of her way in order to win the PoV this week.  It was like seeing Rachel in the game, only the nicer version.  Readers, it was pretty awesome!

Elissa went to Amanda about putting their beef aside to work together and get Spencer out of the House.  Amanda told her this wasn’t going to happen, because Elissa was never the target, but that it was actually Helen.  Elissa went back to Helen, trying to relay this information to her without it actually coming out of her mouth.  Helen somehow deciphered Elissa’s message, took off her blinders to what was happening in the House against her,  and started to rally the troops (Spencer, Andy and GinaMarie) to take Amanda down.

Veto Ceremony

It was no shock to the House that Elissa used the PoV to take herself off the block.  It also was no shock, to me, that Aaryn put Spencer on the block, then blaming the power ruling the House for pushing her into a corner to do so, or else she’d be going home next week.  Boo-hoo, Aaryn!

Episode #25

Helen was putting the pressure to the House Guests to start fighting against Amanda.  She was trying to paint Amanda as a bully (not much paint job was needed, Helen), so that the House would want to keep Helen in the House to defend them from this “bad” person.  She was absolutely sure that her Final Three alliance was fake when she was rejected by Andy and McCrae to change their vote this week to Amanda.

Amanda heard how Helen was portraying her, and she asked McCrae, Andy and Spencer if this was how the House really saw her.  McCrae didn’t answer her (smart man), but Spencer, bless his honest heart, told her that she was kind of a bully.  Amanda tried to brush off Spencer’s assessment of her by saying Helen was mad because Amanda had beaten her at her own game.

Helen had finally saw that the writing was on the wall when she got the truth out of Andy.  He said he was going to vote for Helen to leave the House this week because it would be better for his game if Helen left now.  Helen warned Andy that if he voted for Helen to leave, there would be more targets placed onto his back.  Andy confessed that if this was true, that he may start to rethink what was really best for his game.

Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony

When given the chance to say their last words, Spencer thanked his family, again, and said he wanted to stay and keep playing.  Helen said hi to her family and friends at home and thanked then for their support.  She also said that this game was her dream, and she would love to continue playing.  The Vote was, once again, predictable, as Helen was the one to leave the BB House.  (The Vote was 4-1 for Helen).

Jury/House Guest HoH Competition – Off the Wall

After Julie Chen spoke with Helen about her impressions of the House, Julie Chen announced to Helen and the other House Guests that the HoH Competition would be played by the Jury (Candice, Judd, Jessie and Helen), as well as the remaining House Guests, to see which Jury Member would return to the House, and which individual, Jury Member or remaining House Guest, would become HoH.  In this game, the players would be standing on a moving platform against a wall while trying to catch 10 baseballs and getting sprayed at by jets of water.  The last Jury Member left in the game would win their chance back into the House and continue playing for the $500 000 prize.  The last person standing, Juror or remaining House Guest, would be HoH for the week.   I’m sorry to say Readers, but the show ended with the beginning of this competition.  It will conclude in the next episode.

Whew!  That was a lot of typing and editing from what I like to share in my BB 15 posts.  I’m just happy I got this one out!  I’m glad I’m getting back into the swing of things, and I’m almost caught up.  My pick of the Jurors to return to the House?  Helen.  You know, to get Amanda out and gain some redemption.  Who do I rooting for to win this HoH Comp?  Elissa, of course!  Why?  Because turnaround is fair play in the Big Brother game, no?  Who really will win this HoH Comp?  Which Jury Member really will reenter the House?   How will all of these outcomes influence the games of the remaining House Guests?  Pop back into my blog for the answers!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode # 14 – Doing the Dirty Work of Others

Hello Readers!

I’m still shaking my head at the House’s decision to keep Aaryn in the House!  Really, House Guests?  Sure, Kaitlin was good at competitions, but she doesn’t stay focused like Aaryn does.  Kaitlin was ready to jump ship from Team Aaryn to Howard and Spencer’s new alliance and do whatever anyone swayed her to do.  Aaryn, on the other hand, isn’t as easily swayed.  She’s a dangerous player, and anyone making a deal with her will end up out of the House before her.  Now that Aaryn is HoH again, will she have another bout of HoH-itis?  As for Elissa, we saw a bit of her own catty nature come out when she was teasing Amanda about her “sexy” outfit for McCrae’s birthday.  Will she start becoming the mean girl she had begged Aaryn for?  Read on and find out!

The House was reeling from Aaryn’s rise to HoH power after the HoH Competition.  While Aaryn and Jessie were celebrating in BB Bathroom, new showmance Candice and Howard were worried about their safety in the game.  They were also worried about the deal Jessie told them about involving Helen and Aaryn.  Jessie overheard the deal struck by Helen about keeping Aaryn safe in return for the decision-making power over her nominations should Aaryn become HoH this week.  Howard and Candice didn’t like how this plan went down, nor that Helen and Elissa were still calling the shots around the House.

Aaryn, Spencer and GinaMarie were discussing Spencer’s safety in the House.  Aaryn explained to Spencer that she wanted to keep him safe this week, but she was getting pressure from the “power” in the House to put Howard and himself up for Eviction.  Spencer told Aaryn what I would have said to her, which was to do what you wanted to do since this was her HoH week, not theirs.  Spencer was doing anything possible to sway her decision to save Howard and himself from the block.

Helen and Aaryn speak privately in one of the various BB Rooms.  Helen first congratulated Aaryn for her HoH win.  Helen told Aaryn that Candice was aware of the deal the tow of them have.  Aaryn promised she would take all the heat in order to uphold her end of the deal.  Aaryn might be starting to cause some dissension the Mom Squad by saying to Helen that she thought Elissa leaked the details of the deal to Candice.  Oh, Aaryn!  Such a good move on your part!  Don’t get me wrong, Readers, I love the Mom Squad, but this is how you take advantage of the cracks an alliance! I’ll tip my hat to you, Aaryn, for that move!

Aaryn’s comments may have actually planted a seed in Helen’s head as she went to Amanda, McCrae and Judd to talk about Helen’s deal with Aaryn.  They agreed with Aaryn, saying that it was probably Elissa who spilled the beans about the deal to Candice.  Helen then went on about how Elissa was ruining her game-play by her assumed actions.  Helen, why don’t you just talk to Elissa about your suspicions instead of asking others about their thoughts on the matter.  If Elissa did tell Candice, then be mad at her.  Then again, if Helen goes to her with this, it could further enrage Elissa against Aaryn, taking Elissa’s head more out of the game.

Spencer was still trying to change Aaryn’s mind about putting Spencer and Howard on the block.  He suggested to create a power shift in the House by nominating those in power for Eviction.  Aaryn came clean to Spencer about the deal she has with Helen, and how her hands are tied.   Spencer then told Aaryn that she could have protection in the House to help her to stay so Aaryn could turn her back on Helen’s deal.

Howard wanted to plead his case to Aaryn as well.  Aaryn also told Howard about Helen’s deal, and couldn’t go against it because she was going along with what the majority of the House wanted.  Howard also told Aaryn this was the time to shake things up in the House, and to also know who her friends in the House were., is this your idea of taking the “heat” for going along with Helen’s deal to keep your behind safe?  This is more along the lines of you opening the door to the BB House for Helen to be evicted next week!  Aaryn said she would ultimately do what was best for her game where nominations were concerned.

Sirens went off in the BB House, and all of the House Guests were guided into the BB Living Room.  The TV turned on, and who should appear but Poppy Montgomery promoting the season premiere of her show, Unforgettable.  She was also the host of the this week’s Have-Not Competition called Unexpectedly Unforgettable.  This one was a tricky one.  The House Guests were split, again, into teams of three, Purple, Orange and Green.  Here is a list of the team members:

Purple – Helen, Spencer, Howard, Jessica

Orange – Elissa, Andy, McCrae, Aaryn

Green – Candice, GinaMarie, Judd, Amanda.

This challenge was to be done in two parts.  In Part 1, each team had to collect items from their makeshift evidence lockers in the BB Backyard, then stack them in the correct order.  The teams wanted to finish first during this part because they would receive an advantage for Part 2 of the challenge.  Team Orange won Part 1, followed by Team Purple and Team Green.

Part 2 of this competition is where everything gets more difficult.  The teams then had to remember where all of their evidence went in their evidence lockers.  Each team would also receive a picture with a certain number of of their items belonged.  The advantage Team Orange received was that they got a picture that revealed where 10 of the 24 items belonged.  Team Purple got a picture that showed where 9 of their items went, and Team Green got a picture where 8 of their items belonged.  After trying to unlock their memories, Team Orange won Part 2 of this challenge, followed by Team Purple, meaning that Team Green would have to be the Have-Nots for the week.

After Candice and Howard talk about trying to convince Aaryn to not nominate Howard and Spencer, Howard gets Candice to try to go for this plan, putting up Amanda and McCrae in their place.  Once Candice pitched this idea, Aaryn stuck to her sorry story about voting with the numbers this week to keep herself in the House.  Candice tried to tell Aaryn that she was trusting the wrong people in the House, but in true Aaryn fashion, she tuned Candice out.  How rude!  Come on, Aaryn, at least try to repair some relationships in the House and just listen to Candice for a second!  You never know when knowing what information in this House could be beneficial for your game!

Candice went back to Howard with the bad news.  Howard was surprised because he didn’t get this impression of Aaryn’s mood the night before.  Candice was now worried about a target being placed on her back because she brought this up to Aaryn, and Aaryn wasn’t receptive.  When Candice mentions she wants to go home, this triggers a mini fight between the newest showmance in the House.  Oh, no!  Keep it together, guys!

Aaryn, Elissa, GinaMarie and Jessie were in the HoH Room talking about how Howard and Spencer were “scammers”, and how the “super-people” (Helen and Amanda) wouldn’t change their minds about who was to be nominated.  Jessie said she would support anyone Aaryn picks to nominate.  That’s saying a lot, since Jessie is floating around to everyone in the House to save her own skin.  Aaryn knew that Spencer and Howard were not targeting her, but she’s choosing to do Amanda and Helen’s dirty work.

At the Nomination Ceremony, after all the keys were retrieved, Aaryn’s choices for nominations were as everyone thought: Howard and Spencer.  Aaryn said it was nothing personal against them, and that this was the best choice for her game.  Ha!  Howard, following his faith,  said that his destiny was not in the hands of anyone else but the Man upstairs, and that it wasn’t his time to go yet.  Elissa was elated that she wasn’t on the block considering her relationship with Aaryn.  Spencer said he was going to fight to stay in the House.  Helen was happy tat Aaryn stuck to her end of the deal.

Oh, Readers! I can’t wait for this decision to blow up in Aaryn’s face!  She was so played by Helen and Amanda.  I don’t care what deal you agreed to, you never do anyone’s dirty work!  It will just turn around on you, sending you packing the next week.  Howard and Spencer, as much as I am all for the ladies ruling this game, I think they made a terrible mistake in nominating you two this week.  There are bigger fish to fry than the two of you.  Who will America, as the MVP again this week, pick for the third nominee for Eviction?  Will Howard or Spencer get themselves off the block?  Will Howard and Candice’s showmace last beyond the next episode?  You’ll see if you pop back to visit my blog!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode #11 – Can’t Have Your Cake and Eat It, Too!

Hey Readers!

This week should be an interesting one with Judd as HoH.  As I’ve said in my last post, since he hasn’t aligned himself with any side of the House, his nominations for Eviction will tell where his head is in the game.  You could tell by the way everyone was congratulating Judd after he won that they were all worried about possibly being put up on the block.  Whose worst fears will be realized by being nominated by Judd?  Continue reading and you’ll see!

After the HoH Competition, many of the House Guests were trying to put in their two cents about who Judd should choose for his two nominations this week.  Amanda was practically pushing her suggestion of Howard and Spencer on Judd.  It was almost as though she was afraid they were coming after her!  It must be because of what McCrae told her about what the Moving Company tried to tell him a few weeks ago about Amanda being a strong player.   She might think they are still gunning for her to leave the House.  Spencer was suggesting that Aaryn and Kaitlin should be on the block this week, again.  Get rid of who the House would want out first, then maybe deal with other issues (Amanda) later would be my guess.  Judd was so confused as to which direction to go where his nominations were concerned.  He honestly didn’t know what to do!

There might be another showmance in the works!  Candice and Howard were becoming  closer in the House, and they were being cuddly with each other.  This season of BB has been riddled with mini showmances.  I’m not sure if the show has seen so many people find some sort of romantic connection within the same season ever!  I’ll have to look into this and update you on my findings.

Back to Judd, Aaryn has been trying to convince him that there were bigger fish to fry in the House than her.  She also told Judd she wouldn’t vote for Judd if he were to ever be put up on the block, and that he was never her target.  Judd told her he may be thinking of putting GinaMarie on the block because of what he did to his pal, Jessie last week.  Aaryn was discouraging this plan, and told him that if Aaryn was to go up, then she would most definitely be the one to leave.

Aaryn then went and told the rest of Team Aaryn what went down between the two of them, and they were not too pleased.  GinaMarie and Kaitlin told Aaryn to keep positive because they had no idea who Judd would actually nominate.  Aaryn disagreed with them, and it turned into a mini squabble amongst Team Aaryn.

The Have/Have-Not Competition this week involved a lot of eating.  In Big Brother Froyo Competition, the House was split into three teams of four.  After being weighed as a team, two members from each team had to eat two different flavours of frozen yougurt: chocolate/vanilla and anchovy/habanero.  The team that gained the least amount of weight after eating both kinds of froyo would become the Have-Nots for the week. Here is the break-down of the teams:

Green: Elissa, Amanda, Howard and McCrae

Orange: Andy, Candice, Spencer and Jessie

Blue: Gina Maire, Helen, Aaryn and Katlin                                             

After downing tons of yummy and disgusting spicy froyo, the Orange team weighed the least, giving them the status of Have-Nots for the week.

Amanda was still going full steam ahead with her “get rid of Howard, Spencer and Candice” campaign to Judd.  At this point, she was shoving it down his throat!  Judd didn’t want to put any of them up to do Amanda’s dirty work, but he also wanted to make a big move for himself in this game.  Elissa was also whispering her suggestion of GinaMarie and Aaryn into Judd’s ear, further confusing Judd as to who he should nominate.  Judd had no idea what to do.   For Judd, Shakespeare’s line from Henry IV really applies here, “Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown.”  The crown must be crushing his skull because he wanted to please the House with his decision while the House was so divided on who they wanted to leave this week.

At the Nomination Ceremony, after contemplating what was best for his game, Judd finally came up with his two nominees for Eviction.  Once the House Guests were gathered around the BB dining table and all the keys were removed, the House discovered that Aaryn and Kaitlin, two of the nominees from last week, were back up on the block.  While Aaryn whined about being on the block, again, Kaitlin felt she was back on the block because of her association with Aaryn.

No surprises there, Readers!  I’m happy with the nominations because I want to see Aaryn go.  She put that target on her back when she thought she was brave enough to share her “thoughts” with other members of the House, and torment them for a few weeks.  Hopefully, my wish will come true!  Will Judd’s nominations stick, or will these nominations blow up in his face with the nomination still to be made by America, this week’s MVP?  Will Aaryn somehow turn the House in her favour?  Will any more showmances pop up in the House?  We’ll see in my next BB 15 post!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode #8 – Turn Around is Fair Play

Hiya Readers!

This was one of the most emotionally charged episodes of the season yet!  Yelling, name calling, crying, changes of allegiances, you know, all of the things that make BB so popular to watch.  What else happened in the House with Helen as it’s HoH?  Continue reading and you’ll see!

Frustration between the House Guests finally came to a boil as Nick was evicted from the game.  I mentioned in my last BB 15 post that GinaMarie fell apart, crying hysterically all over the House.  All of this happened before the HoH Competition.  When she wasn’t wailing over the loss of her one-sided showmance, she was taking a temper tantrum, scream and shouting threats to those who voted Nick out of the game, swearing to exact vengeance on them.  The House Guests she was yelling at were in scattered around the House, shaking their heads at what GinaMarie was saying.

After the HoH Competition, Jeremy was miserable because the power has shifted away from his side of the House, and the Moving Company is crumbling.  He decided that he had to look out for his own game from this moment on, so he went to speak to Helen in the Have-Not Room (which they did not show off to my recollection), applauding Helen’s game-play, and sucking up to the Mom Squad any way he could.

Aaryn, GinaMarie, and Kaitlin took a different approach to dealing with the power shift.  They were upset and worried about Helen taking their HoH Room away from them.  They were also wondering which of them would be chosen to nominated to go on the block this week.  It was really sad to see the three of them sulking like children because things were not going their way.

Team Aaryn continued began taking their frustration on being on the wrong side of the House on other players.  They ganged up on Jessie for changing sides by verbally attacking her while she was in her bed.  Aaryn then took a hissy fit and trashed Candice’s bed, tossing the sheets and mattress flying across the room. Judd popped his head into the room to see what was going on, and got yelled at by Team Aaryn.  They then continued to attack Jessie, calling her all sort of things because she lied to them about who she was voting out the House.  Candice then entered the room to find her bed in shambles, and being attacked by Team Aaryn as well.  Both Aaryn and GinaMarie started talking their horrible version of ghetto talk to her to egg Candice on, and Candice was yelling back, trying to defend herself.  Way to go, Team Aaryn! Since one of you can’t stand up for yourself, you can only attack people in packs while your “victim” is alone.  You’re really justifying why all of you should go up on the block and be evicted!

Thank goodness for Howard! He overheard the verbal cat-fight and stepped in to diffuse the situation.  He took Candice out of the room, and talked her down so she wouldn’t go back into the room and continue the fight.  He also got Candice to turn the other cheek about Team Aaryn and their delightful comments.  Oh, Howard!  You’re such a good guy!

Team Aaryn turned their tirade back onto Jessie.  Jessie was defending Candice, and the other ladies in the room were trying to tell Jessie that the Mom Squad and their new allies were talking smack about her, but, thankfully, Jessie didn’t believe them and their petty accusations.  Jessie had to remind these ladies of the smack they’ve been dishing out all over the House, and that they are victimizing themselves.

Later on, when the House simmered down, GinaMarie was crying, again, on the couch with Aaryn watching her.  Candice noticed GinaMarie crying and went over to her to see if she could help GinaMarie get over whatever she was going through.  Both GinaMarie and Aaryn saw the great person she was, and apologized for their words and actions.  Candice confessed that she accepted their apologies, but she didn’t believe they were being sincere, especially in Aaryn’s case.  She said after GinaMarie stopped crying, she would pretend they didn’t exist because she couldn’t trust them.

This week’s Have/Have-Not Competition was a stinky affair.  The House was split into three teams:

Blue                                            Red                                                 Yellow
Howard                                   Judd                                                Spencer
Kaitlin                                     McCrae                                           Andy
GinaMarie                             Amanda                                         Elissa
Aaryn                                     Jessie                                              Candice

One person from each team had to stand in a huge bucket of curdling rotten milk and pass this milk by tossing it out of their smaller bucket to another teammate, and they continue this until they can pour it into a huge jar at the end of the line.  The last team to finish will be the Have-Nots this week.  The Red team finished the competition quickly, cheering their victory.  Howard confessed he was trying to throw the Competition by tossing the milk on GinaMarie, and pretending to have trouble getting milk into his bucket.  He wanted for his teammates to suffer just that much more this week because of all of the waves they were making in the House.  Howard’s plan was done all in vane, though, as McCrae was even worse than Howard was pretending to be in this challenge.  Howard’s teammates were still able to fill their jar before the Yellow Team could, making Team Yellow the Have-Nots for the week.

After the competition, Jeremy swallowed his pride and told Helen about the Moving Company, how he blames McCrae for turning on their alliance and on Aaryn.  Helen was so elated because Candice’s suspicions were right, and Nick leaving really was the best decision to make.   Helen then asked Jeremy if he would care.if Kaitlin went up.  He said as long as his butt was safe, he didn’t care whether Kaitlin went up or not.  Wow!  What happened to all of your chivalry from last week, Jeremy, telling Kaitlin you’d tell her if anyone was after her, and making sure she didn’t go anywhere.  All of that huffing and puffing to the Moving Company about keeping Kaitlin safe, practically ruining your alliance last week for nothing!  Lovely, just lovely, Jeremy!

Howard also stopped by the HoH Room and had a chat with Helen.  When asked about the Moving Company, he denied it.  Why?  Howard, your alliance is D-E-A-D!  Why try to hold on to it?  This just made your stock plummet in Helen’s eyes, warning her that she can’t you.

At the HoH Nomination Ceremony, guess which two House Guests were chosen as Nominees? Yeppers!  It was Kaitlin and Aaryn!  Helen fed them some bull about how they were strong competitors, and how they will get their chance to get off the block by winning the PoV.  Helen then confessed she’s after bigger fish, and to wait for her to reveal her plan later on in the week.

I know, so much went on during this episode!  It was really something to watch.  Team Aaryn really have to stop being babies about their lot in the game, and do something about it.  Did they forget that this could happen to them in the game. Who will be this week’s MVP?  Who will this person nominate as the third person on the block?  Will Team Aaryn continue apologizing to other House Guests over their actions?  Who wiol win the PoV? All of these questions will (hopefully) be answered within my next post!

Until.my.next.post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode #2 – Let Me Put in My Two Cents…

Hi, Readers!

Episode #2 has the House Guests settling down into the rhythm of the BB game.  Just about every House Guests wants to be able to influence HoH, McCrae’s decision over who should be up for the first Eviction of the season, and it’s making it hard for McCrae to decide who to nominate. Who will he ultimately choose to be on the block? Read on and you’ll find out!

After McCrae won the HoH, and the new twist of the BB MVP was announced, the House Guests were excited and worried how this new power would effect their game. They were also sizing up the opposite sex. Jeremy thought and Judd that one of the hot women of the House would be chosen as the first MVP. The ladies were more about the looking at the guys, and less about game play. Some of them gave who they thought was hot code names so they could talk about them without them finding out. Here were some of the ones they revealed:

David – Ken (3 guesses why…)
Nick – Manhattan, then changed to Big (SATC reference)
Jeremy – The Sailor,(because he works on a boat).

McCrae then showed off his HoH Room to the House Guests. He also promised the House Guests that he would not catch HoH-itis (having a power trip because you are HoH). Everyone laughed because a bunch of the House Guests started referring to Rachel when she cause this -itis every time she became HoH. Some of them even did impressions of her, and started talking smack about her. This worried Elissa because this could be placing a huge target in her back in this game.

Nick and Jeremy were talking strategy in one of the various bedrooms in the House. Nick brought up the idea of having a five-person alliance. It would have them, along with Howard and Spencer for their straightforwardness and strength, and McCrae because he seemed wily, and the fact that he was currently the HoH doesn’t hurt either. Jeremy loved this idea because it brought along his original alliance of three (Howard and Spencer), so he wouldn’t have to cross enemy lines to make decisions in the game. Nick then took this idea to the others formerly mentioned. They were all on board. The next order of business for this group of guy was to figure out who to put up for nominations. After a few ideas were thrown around, David’s name popped up because he was, according to them, the last good-looking guy in the House, and the only other physical threat in this game besides themselves.

Aaryn and David had plans of their own for this game. They decided to work together as a team while swinging in the BB hammock in the backyard. David was over the moon about this idea because he wanted to have a showmance this summer more than the money, and he had been admiring Aaryn since they got in the House, and he felt she would be the brains of their operation. Aaryn felt the same way about David, and was excited to play them game with him.

Elissa doesn’t know it yet, but the whole House was.a buzz about their suspicions about her being Rachel Reilly, sister. Some House Guests were upset because they thought she was shady and stupid if she thought anyone wouldn’t figure out who she was. Others thought she was going to have the same attitude as Rachel, and started pegging her as Rachel. I wonder how she’s going to get out of this predicament.

The first Have-Not Competition, “Cooler the Gang” took place to figure out which House Guests would have to be Have-Nots for the week. The House Guests were split up into three teams: Red, Blue and Yellow. Each team had one person paddling with their hands on a inertube raft across the BB man-made lake to retrieve empty beer cans. This person had to then go into their team’s cooler and get a can and row themselves back to where their team was holding up a platform for them to build a pyramid of 15 cans. The last team to finish this task would be Have-Nots. The Blue team finished quickly, while the Red and Yellow teams struggled. After many fumbles and bumbles, the Red team watched as the Yellow team completed their pyramid, making them the Have-Nots. These people are: Elissa, Howard, Helen, Andy and a fifth person. ( I couldn’t tell who it was…I will update this post ASAP when I figure it out).

The Have-Nots were then shown the Have-Not Room for the season. Their luxurious beds this season are actually airplane seats. BB, you’re so bad! I think I would end up sleeping in the floor! Just about all of the Have-Nots were “excited” about their new digs.

The focus of the game shifted to McCrae and who he was going to nominate for Eviction. People kept popping into his HoH Room to give their two cents about who they felt he should put up on the chopping block. A bunch of House Guests were also advising McCrae while relaxing in the BB backyard. They were all talking about how they didn’t like Candice. Others were trying to lean McCrae towards Jessie because she was annoying them with her silly crushes. Elissa felt she should come clean to someone, so she went to McCrae and told him. She also did this because she felt it would make her seem less shady and asked if he wouldn’t put her up because of her situation. Some wanted Elissa up because of who she was. As much as McCrae wanted to please everyone in the House, he wanted to nominate people that would get him further along in the game.

At the Nomination Ceremony, It was revealed that McCrae had chosen Jessie and Candice for Eviction. After feeding his nominee some stupid reason why he chose them, he admitted that they were the two least liked people in the House at the moment. He also didn’t want too much blood on his hands so early in the game. He wanted to leave that to the BB MVP.

That was an interesting episode. I like his choices. They were safe, and at this point in the game, you have to really beef up your social game before you start backstabbing your new friends. Will Jessie and Candice save themselves from Eviction by winning the Veto? Who will be BB’s first MVP? Will we finally see our first BB showmance kiss? Hopefully all of these questions will be answered on the next episode of Big Brother!

Until my next post, Readers!
