Big Brother 15, Episode #16 – Once Again, I Shake My Head!

Hey Readers!

I don’t think the House Guests are seeing the big picture where their game is concerned.  Why am I shaking my head,as it’s suggested in the title of this post?  Well, in my opinion, the game’s latest evicted player was just another bad choice that the House Guests made, as they are just lining themselves up to be picked off one-by-one.  Who was this unlucky individual?  Read below and find out.

Spencer, seeing his partner-in-crime Howard still on the block, was trying everything he could to save him from being evicted.  He devised a plan to save not only Howard, but Candice as well.  He figured it would be beneficial for him to have two allies in the game rather than just one.  Before going ahead with his plan, he spoke privately with Candice, telling her to trust in him, and that he was working to have her and Howard stay.  Candice was happy to hear that someone was on side trying to get Amanda out of the House.  Spencer saw Amanda as a threat to his game because she was targeting both Howard and himself.  Spencer’s plan:  changing at least two out of the five votes currently going against Howard to Amanda so Howard will stay and Amanda will leave the game.  He pitched his plan to bot Andy and GinaMarie, two people who would most likely flip their vote.  GinaMarie said she was on board, sealing it with a fist bump, and Andy said he liked the plan.

Even though House Guests say they like a plan, they may also be lying to your face.  Andy was this type of person.  He ran straight to Amanda to give his report to her about Spencer’s plan.  Amanda confronted Spencer in the BB Backyard.  Amanda told Spencer she knew what he was doing, and it wasn’t going to work.  Spencer tried to deny knowing anything about the plan.  He even tried to ay his target was Candice, not her.  Amanda didn’t believe him, telling him she had the numbers to stay in the House.  Spencer gave up trying to cover his tracks, and started yelling at Amanda after she kept hounding about his plan.

You have to be careful who is listening to conversations in the BB House, because people love sharing this information!  Helen was present for the blowout between Spencer and Amanda, and told Candice what she heard.  Candice was upset, thinking Spencer was trying to play her, and called a House Meeting to call him out.  Once all of the House Guests were assembled, she asked Spencer if what Helen told him was true.  Spencer admitted that he said what he said, but he was really trying to help her.  Candice didn’t believe him, and told the House not to believe anything that came pout of Spencer’s mouth.  She also wanted the House to vote with their hearts, and that she was going after Spencer next week.

Yes, Readers, this was another successful House Meeting.  After Candice went off on Spencer, Aaryn, Jessie and GinaMarie were in the HoH Room talking about what just happened.  Aaryn was pressing the idea of voting Candice out because Candice was becoming a loose cannon and attacking people who are against her in the House.  Hello, Aaryn!  Didn’t you attack anyone who threatened you the last time you were HoH?  I love it when people are so hypercritical on BB!  I’m so over Aaryn!  She really needs a reality check as soon as possible.

At the Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony, each of the eviction nominees got to say their last words.  Amanda thanked her family, and said she was not ready to leave the House yet.  Candice also thanked those supporting her at home, to vote with your heart, and that she wanted to stay in the game.  Howard thanked God and his loved ones, and to respect however they voted for.

Here is how the Vote went down this week:

Candice – 1; Howard – 7; Amanda – 0.

Sadly, Howard was sent home.

For the HoH Competition this week, Bull in a China Shop had the House Guests holding on to a bar with a bull’s head that was attached to a cord while walking on a revolving barrel.  If the House Guests fall off or let go of their “bull,” the bull head will smash into an display case of china, ending their chance at becoming the next HoH.

Since this was an endurance challenge, Julie Chen made some announcements to the House, as well as to the audience in private.  She told the House there would be no Have-Nots this week.  Candice was excited since she’s been a Have-Not for most of her time in the House.  She announced to the audience that America would be the MVP for the third week in a row.  This is the route the BB producers should have gone at the beginning of the game, always keeping the House Guests guessing who the MVP was.  Since none of the players fell off the barrel yet, Julie Chen enticed them by offering for the first tree House Guests that drop out of the competition the opportunity to open three boxes.  One box contained $5 000.  At this point in the competition, no one wanted to drop out. The competition will continue into the next episode.

Oh, I forgot to say that Julie Chen told the House Guests that Britney had her baby!  She named her Tilly, and she was born on July 13, 2013!  Congrats Britney!  Another piece of news I forgot to share was a bit shocking, but cool once it sunk in.  Amanda and McCrae are engaged!  I know, but you go with what feels right, right!  Congrats, and I hope they share pics of the happy day!

Alright, Readers, another House Guest out of the House, and, maybe, one of ht first that didn’t deserve to go yet.  Maybe this is Karma for Howard lying to Helen about what he knew about the Moving Company.  I was routing for Amanda to leave this week because she’s becoming just too pushy around the House, and those who realize this attribute of hers magically end up meeting Julie Chen at the end of the week.  Can someone PLEASE catch onto  this, like Spencer has, and send her out of the game along wit Aaryn!  Oh, there is just one more piece of BB news to share.  This coming Eviction Night will be a magical Double Eviction Night!  Yay!  It’s like a two for one sale!  Who will be the HoHs this week?  Who will win the PoV to save themselves?  Will the power shift yet once again?  I will have these answers, and you can find out by visiting my blog again!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode #15 – Just Say What You Mean, Howard!

Hey Readers!

Howard and Spencer are in hot water as they have been put up on the block by Aaryn.  No one was shocked, but these gentlemen were plenty fired up to try and get them out of trouble, forcing someone else to take their place for Eviction.  One way to do this is by making an appeal to your fellow House Guests to say their minds about you being up on the block.  Do Howard and Spencer sweet talk their way into the House Guests’ hearts, or do they dig themselves a deeper hole to get out of?  Let’s read on and find out!

After the Nomination Ceremony, Helen went to Aaryn to thank her for sticking to their deal.  What Helen didn’t know was that Aaryn was telling anyone while she wasn’t around that she was being forced to put Spencer and Howard up by the power or majority of the House (Helen and Amanda), and everyone else understood what was understood by that.  Elissa made her way to the HoH Room and graciously thanked Aaryn as well for doing as she promised, as well as for not putting Elissa up for Eviction.  Elissa even mentioned the possibility of working with her more in the future.  Please, Elissa, please let this be just words to butter Aaryn up before you try to send her packing next week via the back door!

Meanwhile, in the Have-Not Room, Howard went to pray to clear his mind and calm down.  Jessie disturbed him to tell him she was sad he was on the block, and  that he was one of the people who deserved to win this game because of who he was and what he does for everyone in the House.  Howard was touched by Jessie’s words, and said he would fight to stay in the game.  I’m not sure just how sincere Jessie’s words were to Howard because of her pledge of support for Aaryn’s nominations in the last episode of BB 15.  Did she say this to make Howard think he had her on his side, or did she truly mean it?  I guess only time will tell.

McCrae and Spencer had a private conversation about the nominations.  McCrae told Spencer that he wasn’t the target for the week.  McCrae also confessed in the Diary Room that he would want rather work with Spencer than Howard because he felt that Spencer would be more loyal to him than Howard would.  Spencer, on the other hand, confessed he didn’t trust McCrae and the reason why Howard was on the block was because he would not bend to the will of others in the House, so that made him a threat to others in the House.

Howard confessed to Spencer that he was loosing faith in staying, and that he needed another week in the House to campaign to change the minds of some of the other House Guests.  He also felt that he was being targeted by someone in the House, so he believed that  calling a House Meeting and talking to the other players would be is best chance at clearing up any sort of negative notions anyone had about him.  I think that calling the House Meeting was not a bad idea, but the way Howard presented his case to the House is not what you want to do in the BB game.  Instead of just saying what he meant in a clear and concise manner, Howard went off on a tangent, using his metaphors in a way that  others in the House didn’t understand.  They just tuned him out after a while.  Howard, just speak plainly, and they will get it, and maybe not see you as this shady character who can’t be trusted.  The House Guests were so confused by Howard’s speech that some of them felt as though he was targeting them.  It didn’t help that Amanda caught on to this paranoia, and added fuel to this fire, either.

Amanda and McCrae were feeling too comfortable in the game.  While in the hammock in the BB Backyard, Elissa joined them to talk about who the MVP was for the past few weeks.  Elissa suggested Andy because e just seemed too comfortable in the House.  Once Elissa left, Amanda and McCrae just shook their heads at Elissa’s suggestion, further believing that she was the MVP, and that she was trying to shift the target onto another player.  They also felt that Elissa was targeting them, so they were even more on Elissa watch than they were before.

The House was called to the BB Living Room by Aaryn for the MVP’s Nomination and the Veto Players Selection Meeting.  When America’s MVP pick this week appeared on the screen, the House was shocked once again…it was Amanda!  You could see the wheels turning in her head for the rest of the meeting as to who put her up for nomination.  She confessed she now thought it was Howard who was the MVP, and he wanted to take some of the eat off of him by having her on the block with Spencer and himself. Aaryn drew the other two names of the players for the Power of Veto Competition.  They were Jessie and Candice.  Aaryn chose Helen as this week’s Host for the competition.

McCrae took this opportunity to try and spook Spencer into playing harder for the Veto by telling Spencer that Howard was the MVP, and he was trying to mess Spencer up.  Spencer saw right through McCrae’s ruse, putting more mistrust in Spencer’s head about McCrae.

After the meeting, Amanda and Howard had a conversation in the Have-Not Room.  She had to ask him if e was the MVP for the week, and why he would put her up on the block.  Howard had to tell her over and over again that he was not the MVP.  Amanda still couldn’t trust Howard, and this gave her even more of a reason to see Howard walk through the BB Front Door this week.

Back in Time was the name of the POV Competition this week.  The House Guests had to walk through the Time Transporter to go back in time (really they walked through a mini room in the BB Backyard built for this competition) to the Mesozoic era (this was the time when dinosaurs roamed the Earth).  They had to find the broken pieces of the PoV were scattered all over the place, then put the PoV back together.  Once they did this, they had to jump on their stump to be declared the winner of the PoV.  This competition was a hard one to watch because so many players this week were horrible at putting puzzles together.  This competition really came down to Amanda and Spencer, as they were the only ones who were close to putting the puzzle together.  In the end, Spencer came out victorious, winning the PoV for himself.

Amanda was happy about this outcome because Howard, her target for the week, was still stuck on the block.  She was still hoping everyone was going to stick to the plan to evict Howard this week.  Aaryn didn’t like Spencer coming off the block because this meant she had to nominate another person in his place, putting more blood on her hands and an even bigger target on her back.

Luckily for Aaryn, she received a lot of help to come to a decision as to who this replacement should be.  In the HoH Room, Aaryn, along with Amanda, McCrae, Andy and Helen were brainstorming who should be on the block.  Aaryn felt that Candice should be on the block because she was a major thorn in her side for most of the game so far, and she would be glad to see her go.  Helen said she would tell Candice she tried to say Aaryn’s choice, but there was nothing she could do to change Aaryn’s mind.  Wow Helen!  Way to protect your ally who cracked the Moving Company information to you.  What a show of loyalty.  Andy said it was a no-brainer decision for Aaryn to make.

Howard and Candice’s ears must have been ringing because they felt as though if they were going to make it through the week, they needed to have Helen the Puppet-Master on their side.  Candice then went to Helen to see what Helen could do to keep them off the block.  Helen tried to tell Candice there was nothing she could do to change Aaryn’s mind about keeping Candice off the block, but Candice wouldn’t except what Helen had to say to her.  Candice was willing to make deals to keep the two of them safe, but Helen refused to help her.  Candice got so fed up with Helen that she called Helen out, asking her whether she was her ally or not.  Helen pretty much threw her hands in the air and gave up on the conversation.

Helen didn’t like how Candice called her out, so she decided to start a smear campaign against her to Aaryn and the rest of her cohorts.  Helen lied, saying that Candice threatened Helen about coming after all of them, and they all believed Helen.

At the Veto Ceremony, as expected, Spencer took himself off the block.  Aaryn then replaced Spencer with Candice as this week’s third nominee for Eviction.  Candice swore she was going after Helen and Elissa if she stayed in the House after this week.  Howard decided if he was going to be in the House after this week that Amanda and McCrae were going to be his targets.

A lot happened in this episode of BB 15.  Hopefully Howard didn’t end his game by that speech he gave to the House.  I love that Candice is now on fire, ready to play this game, too.  Helen doesn’t see she’s alienating more of her allies.  If she and Elissa are not careful, the two of them will on the block should some one she has turned er back on becomes HoH next week.  Who will the House decide to evict?  Who will be the next HoH?  Come back to my blog and find out!

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 #13 – Don’t Count Your Chickens…

Hey Readers!

What a wonky Eviction Night! Wow, the House really surprised me this week with who they voted out.  And the new HoH just makes me more excited about the rest of this season! What happened, you ask? Read on and you’ll see!

Before seeing what happened after the PoV Ceremony, Julie Chen revealed to the audience the break-down of America’s votes as the MVP.   Aaryn was America’s first choice, but since Judd had nominated her for Eviction, Elissa, America’s next choice got bumped up to the first nominee for the MVP.  GinaMarie got the third highest amount of votes, and will be the replacement nominee should Elissa take herself off the block with the Veto.

The House a divided as to whether Aaryn or Kaitlin should be the House Guest to leave the House this week. While speaking to Aaryn and Jessie about evicting Kaitlin because she such a threat in competitions, Judd also shared his dislike for Aaryn with Elissa and Helen because of her shady actions and mean girl-like tendencies.  Judd then went to Candice and Howard, and even they were conflicted as to how to vote.

Aaryn was in the campaign trail, making a deal with Helen where if Helen and Elissa both don’t vote for Aaryn to leave this week, and Aaryn becomes HoH this week, Aaryn will do whatever they want her to do.  Aaryn went to Elissa with this same deal, but Elissa was not sure if Aaryn could be trusted.

Judd let the secret about alliance against Aaryn, Amanda and Elissa out of the bag. He told Helen, Andy, Jessie (a few of them that were also part of this same alliance) why they formed the alliance, and not to let Howard and Spencer know that he spilled the beans. They also discussed Kaitlin possibly leaving the House this week because she was a threat to win the game.  Helen then made a bee line to Elissa and Amanda to let them in in the news, and to keep their mouths shut about what they were just told.

Maybe some secrets should be kept away from Elissa because she went blabbing away to Kaitlin about it! Elissa asked Kaitlin if she was a part of the alliance while they were primping themselves in the bathroom. Kaitlin was upset over the secret being out, and wanted to call the House out to find out what was going on. Unfortunately for Elissa, Aaryn was skulking in the bathroom, listening to their whole conversation, ready to start drama because Aaryn thought Elissa sharing this information with Aaryn, and not her, was breaching their deal. Kaitlin then went to Spencer and Howard to let them know the jig was up, and they said they were going to play it off.

Helen found out that Elissa opened her mouth about the secret alliance when Aaryn entered the room, complaining that she wasn’t let in in the news. Kaitlin, who was also present, asked Elissa why Elissa said anything. Helen said it was because of Elissa’s vendetta against Aaryn. Spencer and Howard then entered the room, and they were barged with questions about their alliance. They played dumb, saying they knew nothing about this alliance. Aaryn and Elissa then got into a yelling match in front of the whole House! Howard confessed that maybe Aaryn should go home because of the trouble she starts with other House Guests.

The show then cut back to Julie Chen announcing it was time for the Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony. When the nominees were asked to give their final words, Aaryn thanked everyone in the House for a great summer, Kaitlin thanked House as well for her summer on BB 15, and GinaMarie thanked both the House Guests and her supporters at home, as well as telling Nick she missed him.

Here is how the Vote went down:
Aaryn – 0; Kaitlin – 9; GinaMarie – 0.
Yeah, the House got rid of Kaitlin! Crazy, huh!

Julie Chen then tells the audience that America will be the MVP again next week, getting to decide who will be the third nominee this week.   I love how this twist on a twist is playing in the House!  It’s keeping the House Guests confused and on their toes where their game-play is concerned.

At the HoH Competition, Roulette Me Win, the House Guests had to roll a ball over a play area with bumpers and have it land on the highest number possible on a revolving roulette table to become the next HoH. After everyone, except Judd, had their turn, Aaryn, went from being on the block to becoming the next HoH, repeating Helen’s pattern two weeks prior.

Oh, Readers! What is going on here? As I said in my last BB 15 post, this week’s vote was a no-brainer! Aaryn should have been speaking to Julie Chen, not Kaitlin. How did Helen and Elissa think they could trust Aaryn over the possibility of Kaitlin winning HoH. Especially after they knew what the HoH Competition was going to be? It was a lucky roll Aaryn had to get the highest number possible on the roulette wheel. What kind of torture will Aaryn put the House through this week as HoH? Will Elissa make it through this week, not being able to play the Veto? Who will Aaryn put up for Eviction? Who will America put up as their MVP nominee? Bring yourself back to my blog to find out!

Until my next next post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode #12 – How Assumptions Become Truth in the BB House!

Hiya, Readers!

This episode of BB 15 was an interesting one!  Suspicions are whispered behind closed doors, alliances begin to crumble, new ones are created, and out of all of this, the stage is set for this week’s Eviction.  America even assisted in making the events of this episode fall as they did with the decisions it made for the final nominee for Eviction.  Who did America choose?  How does it play into how the House flipped on its head?  Continue reading and find out!

At the Nomination Ceremony at the end of Episode #10, Judd made a comment about Aayrn which Aaryn felt made her shady.  No, Aaryn, you have done this all on your own!  Don’t fault Judd for your smart actions in the House!  Aaryn went to speak to Judd about what he said about her and about being put up on te block.  Judd calmed er down, saying he was planning to back-door someone else, and that she wasn’t his target.  Judd confessed he was saying anything to shut Aaryn up and make her happy.

Kaitlin and Amanda were also talking about the nominations.  Kaitlin was worried about Aaryn winning the PoV and taking herself of the block, leaving Kaitlin stuck there and possibly leaving this week.  She also asked Amanda if she was the target.  Amanda told her it wasn’t her.  Aaaryn then enters the room, still whining about possibly leaving this week.  Amanda tell them she’s on a mission to get Howard back-doored this week.

Elissa started tripping (not falling, but going batty) around the House because she would have heard by now  whether she was chosen as the MVP by now.  Her attitude and paranoia was rubbing the other House Guests the wrong way.  Elissa was worried that since she hadn’t heard anything yet, this must then mean another member of the House was chosen, and she could  find herself as the third nominee on the block.

In the BB Backyard, Howard and Spencer were cooking up a coup d’etat while playing pool.  They knew that Elissa and Amanda were running the show around the House.  They figured that if they got the Floaters together, along with GinaMarie, that they could take control of the House away from the ladies.  In the HoH Room, their plan seemed to magically fall into place, when all the people they wanted to talk to about this new alliance came into the room (GinaMarie, Andy, Judd, Kaitlin).  After feeding these people lines about rising up against the oppression Elissa and Amanda were imposing upon them, they all agreed to  get rid of them together.

At the Veto Players Selection Meeting, Elissa’s worst fears came to fruition: she was not selected as this week’s MVP, and she was put up on the block!   Yes, America voted for Elissa to sit next to Aaryn and Kaitlin!  Maybe it was because they knew she probably had the best chance at beating Kaitlin and Aaryn for the PoV.  The other two players chosen for the Veto Competition were Helen and McCrae.  Even thoug Elissa is on the block, the players for the Veto could really work in Elissa’s favour.  The only two players that really don’t want Elissa off the block are Aaryn and Kaitlin.  McCrae would be the wild card, as Amanda is a bit annoyed with Elissa’s behaviour up until now.  If Elissa really pushed Judd, he probably would Veto the MVP’s nominee and take Elissa down.  Helen would fight tooth and nail to get her fellow Mom Squad member off the block.  Oh, I can’t forget to say that Elissa isn’t too bad at competitions, either.  Don’t sweat it, Elissa, you have more than a fighting chance at getting off the block!  Tis week’s host, chosen by Judd, was Andy.

After the meeting, Elissa confessed she felt betrayed by whoever the MVP was.  She thought she was nice to everyone in the House, and she didn’t understand why America didn’t choose her this week.  She was also didn’t know why she was picked to be on the block.  She was beginning to think the MVP was someone of Team Aaryn. Elissa even asked them if one of them was the MVP, and they honestly said no, they were not the MVP.  Their response didn’t satisfy Elissa’s suspicions of Team Aaryn, further fueling her anger toward Aaryn.

Team Aaryn were thinking in the total opposite direction.  They all thought Elissa was the MVP, and nominated herself in order to make the target on her back smaller.  It’s not a bad idea, but Elissa being such a big target in this House, as well as being on the block before wouldn’t make Elissa want to put herself in this position voluntarily.  There is too much of a risk of not winning the Veto and being sent home at this point in the game for Elissa to do this, but this is Team Aaryn we’re talking about, Readers!  In my opinion, they’re not really seeing the full picture where the game is concerned.  They only rely on Aaryn’s point of view, and what they hear second-hand.  It’s a wonder they’re still shocked tow of the three of them are on the block right now.

At the Veto Competition called Veto Election, the players were asked to dress to impress.  As they walked ou to the BB Backyard, they saw why they were all so snazzy.  For this Competition, they had to crawl under benches through a huge pile of mud to collect envelopes that held ballots with various numbers of votes.  Some of these votes also had punishments on them.  The players could only have four ballots to accumulate as votes as possible to win the PoV.  The votes with punishments, if the players chose to use the votes with punishments on them had to do them, regardless of whether or not they win the PoV.  After a lot mud slinging (I guess this little joke was not lost on the producers of BB 15), Elissa won the PoV.  Here are the punishments each player has to endure due to the points they chose to use:

Helen – 8 PM curfew two nights in a row

Judd – 24-hour solitary confinment

McCrae – $5000

Elissa – Can’t play in the next Veto Competition.

While Judd was having fun by himself in a room where he nothing but to eat but slop,  and an alarm clock that went off every nine minutes for 24 hours, the rest of the House decided to throw McCrae a 24th birthday party he wouldn’t forget.  Amanda made this party unforgettable by dressing up in a one-piece bathing suit and heels, and giving McCrae his birthday beats with a leather whip.  Now, unless the producers provided the whip for this impromptu  fiesta, who would bring a whip into the House as something they needed in their luggage?

Elissa, in some strange mood, decided to badger Amanda about her wardrobe choice, from when she put it on, until the party was over.  Why would you do that, Elissa?   What would possess you to share your feelings about Amanda’s choice of attire?  These thoughts should have been kept to yourself!  This could seriously come back to haunt you, Elissa!

At the Power of Veto Ceremony, Elissa took so much pleasure in taking herself off the block leaving Aaryn and Kaitlin on it.  The House Guests then found out who America secretly chose as their replacement nominee.  A smile broke out across my face when I saw GinaMarie’s picture pop up on the BB TV screen!  GinaMarie, along with the rest of the House, was in shock!  If Elissa was the MVP’s first pick, why would GinaMarie be their second one?  This further fueled the idea that Elissa was indeed the MVP, while Elissa was just as baffled as everyone else!

Oh, Readers, this was such a great ending to a BB 15 episode!  Everyone is still questioning who the MVP was and Team Aaryn are all on the block!  Having any one of them out of the House would make me happy, but the possibility of having Aaryn out of the game is so great!  No more sense of entitlement and no more sneaky, snide two-faced comments!  But I’m celebrating too early.  The votes haven’t been cast yet.  This vote should be a no-brainer, though.  Will my thoughts come to fruition and Aaryn actually does leave the House?  Who will become the next HoH and MVP?  Come on back to my blog and find out!

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 #7 – Watch Out for the Mom Squad!

Hey Readers!

This episode of BB 15 was a hum-dinger! Team Elissa is fighting Team Aaryn/the Moving Company for control of the BB. The CEO of the Moving Squad, and Nick, my #1 pick to win this game, joins the Mom Squad on the block. Which side of the House will come out victorious? Read on and you’ll see.

Before I continue, let me show you how the House was split:

Team Elissa              Team Aaryn     Moving Company        Floaters
Elissa                            Aaryn                       Nick                             Jessie
Helen                           GinaMarie               Spencer                      Judd
Candice                       Kaitlin                      Howard
Amanda                                                         Jeremy
Andy                                                               McCrae

Back to the show, Amanda and Elissa were talking about who would support their cause of evicting Nick this week. They were sure about everyone in their camp, pretty sure of the Floater, but they did not know where Spencer stood on this matter. Andy and Helen were discussing the same thing, saying if Nick doesn’t leave this week, then he just might win this game. They would also have to be ready for the fallout should Nick or his cohorts become HoH next week.

Elissa and Helen were both trying to get to Jessica, as she was seen as the wildcard of the Floaters. They also knew how she felt about Nick. They emphasized this fact, saying  if Nick stayed in the House, then she would be the next nominee on the block next week. With Team Elissa, she would stay to at least make the Jury. Helen also made a very good point that if Nick stays this week that the liars would be exposed in the House, so everyone was anxious about the live Vote and Eviction.

The Moving Company were really not feeling the McCrae – Amanda showmance.  They still felt she was a powerful player, and too smart to not to try to influence McCrae, and it could break up the group.  Nick and Spencer both made their pitches to McCrae to drop Amanda before she gains more power in the House.  McCrae felt conflicted between his feelings for Amanda and his alliance.  Both McCrae and Amanda didn’t trust Nick, causing McCrae to second guess who he should vote to evict.  He also knew that whatever decision he made would be making pick a side in House.

Julie Chen, channeling the ’70s in the right way in a fab green catsuit and big beautiful hair, asked the House Guests if they remembered that they were being watched 24-hours a day by not only the producers, but by many people over the Internet.  When asked to respond, Aaryn said she was an open person, and she was aware of the cameras.  Okay, Readers! I know that Aaryn is young, but that is no excuse for her behaviour.  Like I’ve said before, I believe in free speech, but to carelessly throw around the comments about people in the House the way she has, she’s lucky one has cussed her out! Trust me, I would have been doing the cussing if I were in the House!

In a segment the show aired right after Aaryn spoke about her “openness,” it showed many of the House Guests whom Amanda spoke ill about discussing how her comments made them feel.  Candice was hurt because Aaryn apparently said one of her racially charged comments her hurt.  Howard felt as thought there was a personal vendetta against him because of these comments.  Amanda was also present during this conversation, and decided to warn Aaryn about how Aaryn should choose her words more carefully around the House.  Aaryn literally blew off Amanda’s advice, saying that it was obnoxious how these House Guests were upset over these comments when they were, according to Aaryn, throwing around the blonde comments, and she’s not apologizing for her comments.  I am so angry over Aaryn’s reaction to Amanda’s warnings, but I do understand her frustrations if these people are throwing around blonde comments about her.  I was also none too pleased with Amanda saying she knew that Aaryn was joking about her comments.  Aaryn’s comments are not joke, nor were they funny.  Two wrongs don’t make a right, but then be the bigger person and acknowledge your mistakes, Aaryn.  I don’t think she may have thought that they may be saying what they’re saying in response to your hurtful comments about them.

At the Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony, Elissa thanked her peeps outside the House for their support, and for the House Guests to really think about who they really would like to stay in the House. Nick thanked specific people in the House for certain memories he got from them. Helen didn’t want to say goodbye, but see you later, and to thank them for seeing the Mom Squad as a threat in the House. Once the votes were in, they fell as follows:

Helen – 0; Elissa – 4; and Nick – 7.

Noooooooooo! Not Nick! I really didn’t want to see any of this week’s nominees go home, and Nick was an interesting character. I wanted to see more of him this summer.  Bye-Bye, #1 pick! 😦

It was another deathly quiet House after the Eviction this week, well, except for GinaMarie bawling her eyes out over Nick’s departure.  Howard was comforting her, but she just kept right on crying.  She really liked Nick.  Based on Nick’s final comments, it didn’t seem as though it was much of a blind-side, but I guess if your head is so fall in the sand in this game,like some of the players’ are, it would have really been a shock!

At the HoH Competition, Overnight Deliveries, the House Guests were awoken throughout the night the night before the Eviction by the BB Express. They had to go to the BB Backyard to see various packages pass by them on a conveyor belt.  During the Competition, Julie Chen asked a series of true or false questions based on what they observed.  After six rounds, and two tie-breaker questions, Helen, part of the Mom Squad, came out victorious, becoming the HoH this week!

Oh, a power shift so early in the game!  I love it, especially if it makes Aaryn, Jeremy and Kaitlin quake in their boots.  I didn’t think this would happen, but the Mom Squad has been unleashed on the House, and has significant power. Who will the Mom Squad put up for Eviction?  Has the Moving Company filed for Chapter 11?  Will Aaryn try to go to Helen and try to create that secret alliance Helen was asking for since the beginning of the game?  Will the women continue to rule the House?  We’ll find all of this out in the next episode!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode #6 – Put Your Feelings Aside and Woman it Up!

Hey There, Readers!

As you can tell by this episode’s title, the women were finally beginning to pick up their game play in the BB House! This started during Episode #5 when Candice began piecing together the members of the Moving Company, and that they were gunning at getting rid of the women first.  Will the women in the House snap out of their cattiness and get their game faces on?  Read on and you’ll see!

After HoH Aaryn’s nominations of Elissa and Helen, Both women vowed not to campaign against each other, and to work together to change their fortunes in the House.  They planned to also target Aaryn should both of them remain in the House after the next Eviction.  Candice joined the ladies and figured out the all-guy alliance’s plan to control the House and get all the women evicted.  The three women were trying to come up with a way to put an end to their plan.

Meanwhile, in the Storage Room, members of the Moving Company were laughing and celebrating over their plan going over so well.  They thought that the women were too caught up in their egos that none of them realized they were being duped by the guys!  None of the guys realize that someone was on to them.

Helen wanted to continue this women’s movement by going to the HoH Room and trying to get Aaryn on her side.  She reminded Aaryn of the deal she made during the last episode where if Aaryn were to keep her from Eviction, then the two of them would secretly work together to take over the House. Aaryn remembered this talk, and said she’d keep it in mind.   Aaryn confessed that she liked the idea of having a secret alliance, but had to see where it fit into her strategy.

This week’s BB MVP was revealed! Guess who it was?  No surprise here, Readers, it was Elissa for the second week in a row! This week, I think, it was a mix of the Rachel fans and those who are anti-Aaryn fans who voted for her. Smartly, Elissa told Helen, and told her not to say anything to anyone about it. The ladies were then trying to figure out who to target. This choice was a no-brainer for Elissa: Jeremy.  She knew he was the one controlling Aaryn and her decisions, as well as being the House’s biggest physical threat, so he needed to leave before he could do more damage.

It was time to pick the players for the PoV Competition. The last nominee chosen by the MVP in secret was announced.  Jeremy was revved and ready, calling himself a manimal because he was so excited to compete.  This was making Elissa and Helen worry a bit because most people hate being on the block, and it didn’t even phase him. T hen Aaryn picked the last two names out of a box. Amanda and Nick were the last two players this week.  Amanda also wanted Jeremy out for what he did to the Have-Nots at the end of last week. Nick was happy to play because he could help get his fellow Moving Company member off member off the block.  Aaryn then GinaMarie as this week’s host of the Competition.

Elissa, trying to hedge her bets in winning the PoV, went to Nick to make a deal with him. If Nick threw the Competition, Elissa promised to give him a two-week free pass should she and Helen get HoH, or the MVP, whoever it was, would put Nick up as a replacement nominee if someone took themselves off the block.  Nick agreed to the deal, because he thought it was a win-win for him. He wanted to try and win the PoV for himself to save Jeremy, and if he didn’t win, he felt safe because the MVP wouldn’t touch him because of his deal with Elissa.

Britney from BB 12 and 14 visited the House via video with a special announcement: she was preggers! She said the PoV Competition would help finish together her nursery by putting together a super big mobile with stuffed animals. The first House Guest to have 10 stuffed animals balanced on the mobile and hit their nightlight would win the PoV.

It took the competitors a while to figure out how to get the animals to balance on the mobile, but Jeremy must have used us maninal powers to figure out the pattern in order to balance out the animals. He ran over to his nightlight, and won the PoV!

Howard was pleased that Jeremy won because it helps his game. He confessed that it would solidify his reason to have him eventually go because Jeremy’s successes also make him a bigger threat to win the game. He needs to go! Howard! I never saw this coming from you! I’m beginning to like you more and more!

In the HoH Room, Jeremy and Kaitlin were “celebrating” his victory by making out on the King-size bed. GROSS! Aaryn has to sleep on those sheets, and you’re doing who knows what on the sheets and not washing them afterwards. One word, Readers: Nasty! Kaitlin was telling Jeremy her fears of being put up as the replacement nominee and being blind-sided by him and the House. He said he would never do that, and he would tell her if she was going.  Really, Jeremy! Why not fight for her to stay in the House, not don’t just tell her she’s going.

Maybe he wanted to prove his loyalty to Kaitlin, or maybe he heard me screaming at he TV, but he went around the House, as if he was in a mission, “pulling rank” with the rest of the Moving Company and telling them that Kaitlin must not go up on the block. Here were their reactions:
Spencer – agreed with Jeremy because he didn’t really care unless it was someone from their alliance.
Nick – was on the fence because he.knew if Kaitlin didn’t go up, it would be him.
McCrae – didn’t like Jeremy and his demands. He felt.these decisions should be done by the group, not by any one individual.
Howard – didn’t tell Jeremy his true feelings, but he was so not on board. He said the only person he listens to is God.

Elissa and Candice were talking about the reason why so many men have won Big Brother. They felt it was because not many of the women in the game make big moves. Candice wanted to suggest to Aaryn that they should try to separate Nick and Jeremy because the ladies knew that these two guys were part of some kind of alliance. Since they couldn’t go after Jeremy, they should then go after Nick. Candice was unaware of the deal Elissa made with Nick. Elissa didn’t want to go against the deal she had with Nick, but she also didn’t want to leave the House, either. What she didn’t know was that Nick trying to win the Veto, so their deal was null and void.

Elissa was going to make her decision based off of her conversation with Nick. She asked him if he was going to vote for her for Eviction. He didn’t give her a definitive answer, and couldn’t look her in the eye. You all know what that means! Elissa understood what that meant, and went to Helen to to tell her what happened. Nick could no longer be trusted.

At the PoV Ceremony, as expected, Jeremy used the PoV on himself, and the House awaited the replacement nominee the MVP chose Nick’s pic5ture appeared in the TV screen, and Nick took his place beside Helen and Elissa on the block.

Helen said that her alliance with Elissa they’ve named the Mom Squad were coming after Nick and the rest of the guy alliance. Nick said that Elissa was.going to be the one to be packing her bags this week, not him. Elissa said she was going to convince the House that Nick was a threat, and he needed to go!

This was such a good episode! So proud of some of the women in the House for seeing through the smokescreen the Moving Company put ip in Week 1, and are fighting against it. It’s too bad the rest of the women are so clouded by their pettiness and their narcissism, that they can’t see what’s going on.  It just sucks that Elissa’s camp doesn’t hold too much power in the House. Sure, anything can happen on Eviction Night, but it will be an uphill battle. Yes, I’m beginning to warm up to Elissa. So far, she is the toned-down version of Rachel. Elissa has to get kick that Reilly spirit into gear to win another competition, that is if she’s not voted out. Will the Mom Squad get their wish and have my Number 1 pick, Nick, be voted out of the game? Is the cookie beginning to crumble for the Moving Company? Who will the next HoH in the House? You’ll only.find out by checking back into my blog!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 15, Episode #4 – “Nice Guys” Finish Last!

Hey Readers!

Tonight’s the first live Eviction! I was really anxious to see who would be the first one out of the BB House, and when I saw this person go through the door, I was as happy as a kid on Christmas with a ton of presents.  Who was this lucky individual, you ask?  Well, you’ll have to read on to find out.

As a side note of BB news, House Guests, Aaryn and GinaMarie have been saying some rather unpleasant things about their fellow competitors. Racial and homophobic comments were shared amongst these two ladies while hanging out in the BB Backyard (Thanks, Big Brother Seasons 15 for the link!).They truly must have forgotten that CBS has a 24-hour feed running that some super fans watch religiously. Due to their actions, they have both lost their jobs with their modelling agencies, and who knows what other repercussions will come about because of their opinions.

Readers, even though I wasn’t cool with what came out of their mouths, I do believe that everyone should be able to think and believe what they want. This is only true if these beliefs are kept to one’s self, and not used to hurt others. Once, again, I was wrong about a House Guest.  I’m sure that Aaryn is still a nice person, she’s just nit who I thought she was.  Oh well, c’est la vie!

Back to the BB House…the House Guests had mixed reactions to McCrae and his decision to use the PoV on Candice, then change his nomination by replacing Candice with Elissa.  McCrae did this to try and appease as many of the people in the House as possible. If his former claim of playing this game his way was true, I wonder if would have done what he did.

Elissa, using that Reilly wit of hers, began damage control by coming clean with the House, telling them that she was in fact Rachel’s sister. Some House Guests were receptive to Elissa’s play at honesty. Andy and Amanda were two such players, and now wanted ti start to work with her in the game.

Showmance #2 is underway!  Jeremy and Kaitlin are the this twitter-patted pair, and their secret chats and their PDA sessions were done all over the House. Yeah, they’re not keeping their feelings for each other a secret. They’ve become so close so fast, but hey, lust is lust!

Everyone in the House agreed to help the Have-Nots celebrate the end of their punishment by cracking open a bottle of red wine with everyone at midnight. You’d think everyone could hold off until then, but this is the BB House, so you know someone couldn’t wait. In his case, it was Jeremy, Kaitlin and Aaryn. They took the bottle of wine and drank it all in the BB Backyard.

When midnight arrived the Have-Nots found out that there was no wine to be had.  After some whispering around the House, Jeremy confessed to being the wine thief, and told the others not to blame the others he was with.  He also told them he didn’t care that the Have-Nots had been jilted or upset with him. Helen started crying because of the arguments starting up over the stolen wine. This was so not the time to fall apart. I know Helen may be over reacting because she had been a Have-Not the past week, but emoting so much puts a target on your back, and makes some people perceive you as frail and expendable in this game.

Amanda took Jeremy up in his invitation, and called him out on taking the wine and drinking it with his gaggle of friends. She was defending the Have-Nots and the others that have started to take a disliking to Aaryn and Kaitlin. Jeremy continued to defend his actions, saying he knows he was a jerk for doing what he did, but didn’t care. He also said he was here to compete, so he wasn’t afraid of possibly being nominated. He then stormed inside of the House ending the argument. The House exploded for the first time this season, and in a big way, too!

What? Another showmance has begun between two unlikely House Guests. Amanda and McCrae started canoodling in his HoH Room. McCrae was so amazed that a pizza delivery boy could score with an upscale real estate realtor. I’m not sure if it is truly genuine on Amanda’s part, but, hey, as long as you know what you want from each other, no one should get hurt. Let’s see how long this showmance lasts.

There was a difference of opinion as to which House Guest will leave on Eviction Night. David and Aaryn think it will be Elissa because there are a number of players who don’t like Elissa. It’s due to either her connection to Rachel, or they find her annoying. The Moving Company think that David will be shown the door because they want to keep Elissa around. They figure that if Elissa stays in the House, she’ll win the MVP every week. They would put up with her and use her nomination and vote each week in exchange for her safety in the House.

Woohoo! Julie Chen, in another stunning dress and heels, announced it was now time for the Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony! The nominees each got a brief moment say something to try to save themselves. Jessie, who stayed away from the drama and knew she wasn’t going anywhere, thanked the House for her time there. Elissa came up with a good reason to keep her. She said you should keep a target in the House in order to keep the target off yourself. David said he should stay because he was a nice guy, and that he should get to stay for a bit longer.

The Votes were cast, and this was the breakdown of the Vote: Jessie – 0; Elissa – 5; and David – 7. Yep! David was the first House Guest to be evicted! David and Aaryn seemed shocked by these results. Once David was out the door, Aaryn looked like she was already out to get revenge for her David’s early departure.

Oh, there was another weird occurrence after David’s leaving. Usually, people are scheming and plotting their next move, but, for the most part, the House was silent. There wasn’t much conversation between people, everyone seemed as though they were in mourning. I’m not sure what to make of it.

The next HoH Competition called “BB Barbeque” had the House Guests, minus McCrae, put into pairs. While on a slippery surface, one member had to pass barbeque sauce to the other over a hedge in a small scoop and put it into a large jug. The teams also had the option to fill a smaller jug which would release two larger scoops the pair could use to potentially finish the task faster. The pair that fills their large jug first wins the Competition. Then the pair has to decide amongst themselves which one of them will become the new HoH. Personally, Readers, I think this is a horrible way to decide who will be the HoH. How would you decide between you and your partner if you both wanted to be HoH? You also loose the distinction of saying you won a HoH when it was a team effort. This Competition continued after this episode ended, so we’ll find out the winner on the next show.

What an explosive episode! Who would have thought the House would have blown up so quickly over a bottle or two of wine! David’s eviction also further inforces the saying, “Nice guys finish last.”  It’s hard to be nice and win this game.  It’s possible, but you have to have an amazing social and competitive game, too.   Now, there are also two camps in the House: the Elissa Camp and Aaryn Camp. Which one will come out triumphant this summer? Who will be the next HoH? Who will be crowned the next MVP? Find all this out in my next BB 15 post!

Until my next post, Readers!

Reese.
