Big Brother 15, Episode #19: It’s a 2-for-1 Special!

Hey Readers!

It’s Double Eviction Night!  It’s a night on BB 15 when 2 people leave the BB House on the same night, as well as a whole week of competitions (except the Have-Not competition) are played.  These nights are so much fun to watch because the House Guests become even more, and if there’s no room for error, either.  You can really see where a player’s allegiance lies, too, as there is no real time to plan a strategy, or to try and recover from saying or doing something stupid.  It’s do or die time, and, well, someone’s gotta go!  Who were the two unlucky characters to get the boot out of the BB House?  Continue reading below and find out!

After welcoming the audience to the Double Eviction Night, Julie Chen announced that, from this point on, the House Guests that are evicted from the game will become part of The Jury who selects who will ultimately win BB 15!  Yeah, I know, 9 jury members!   Usually there are 7, but since this season started so early, I guess the producers figured they’d add 2 more members!

Now, getting to the show itself…Amanda figured she’d better start playing nice in order to save her butt from Eviction.  She went to Jessie to “reason” with her about their fight a few days ago.  Amanda even said she would support Jessie to the end of the game!  Can you smell the desperation Amanda must have been feeling in order to say that to get Jessie to change her mind?

Amanda then spoke to her secret alliance of McCrae, Judd and Andy about trusting each until the end of the game.  In the Diary Room, she confessed she didn’t truly trust Judd.  To her, he had been acting a bit shady, and this didn’t sit well with her.

Candice, Elissa and Jessie were trying to figure out ways to save Candice from Eviction.  They thought the only way to get this done would be to switch the Vote to Amanda.  Jessie went to talk to Helen to see if she could use her sway to accomplish this task.  Helen said she would need to have all of her allies on board in order to do this.

Jessie then went to her buddy, Judd, and asked if he would vote Amanda out as well.  Judd confessed in the Diary Room that if he went along with this plan, it would completely change the outcome of the game.

Helen went to her confidant, Andy with this plan.  Oh, Helen, if you only knew how close Andy was to Amanda, and that Andy squeals EVERYTHING e hears around the House to her.  Andy confessed in the Diary Room that if he did this, he would lose one of is biggest allies in the game, and that this plan may not be the best one for his game.

Candice was doing everything she could to stay.  She went back to Helen to see if there was anything she could  to change the Vote.  Candice told Helen that the House was crazy to want Amanda to stay because she’ll win if she doesn’t leave soon, and that she knew Helen had enough clout around the House to make things happen.  Helen’s weak defense was that Amanda hasn’t done anything against her.  Candice warned her it was only a matter of time until Amanda did.  Helen confessed in the Diary Room that if Amanda was to leave the House that the next big target would be her.

The show then went back to Julie Chen and the live studio audience.  Julie Chen spoke to the House Guests and told them she had good and bad news for them.  The good news was that the Jury would begin that night with the next evicted House Guest.  The bad news was that it was also a Double Eviction Night, and just because you’re on the Jury doesn’t mean you’re out of the game.

It was then time for the first Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony of the show.  Wen it was time for the nominees’ final words, Candice used her time to cuss GinaMarie out, making Julie Chen have to yell at them to stop.  Spencer thanked his family and the House Guests for the summer.  Amanda greeted her family, and said she was giving the same speech as last week.  There is no need to break down the Vote for this Eviction.  It was an unanimous decision:  Candice was evicted from the BB House, and was the first member of The Jury.

After Julie Chen spoke with Candice, it was time to start off the next week of BB 15 in one night.  Summer School was the name of the HoH Competition.  It would suck to be the HoH on a Double Eviction Night because you only hold this had position for about 40 minutes, yet you are ineligible to compete in the next HoH Competition.  You have no real time to strategize about who to nominate, and you put a large target on your back.  In this competition, the players, except GinaMaire, had to answer questions about items and events within the BB House.  They had to say whether it was more or less than what Julie Chen asked.  After just 4 rounds of play, Aaryn came out as the winner and the HoH!

Aaryn had so many voices in her ear, trying to tell her who she should nominate for Eviction.  When it was time for Aaryn to give her nominees for Eviction, Julie Chen told the House that the MVP twist was now over, so from this point on, there would be only two nominees for Eviction each week.  The House seemed relieved at this news, since they didn’t know for sure who it was for the last two weeks.  Aaryn then told the House that she chose Spencer and Jessie for Eviction.

The show then went to the PoV Competition called Nailed It!  The players (Amanda, Judd, Andy, Aaryn , Spencer and Jessie) had to find  6 different sized nails that fit into certain holes on a Veto board.  Once they found all of them and hit their buzzer, and they were put into the right holes, they would win the PoV.  If the nails were in the wrong holes and they used the buzzer, they would be eliminated from the competition. It didn’t take Aaryn too long to complete this game, winning the PoV, holding all of the power to decide who stays or goes on the block.

Before the PoV Ceremony, Aaryn was pulled aside by Helen, giving her more advise.  Yeah, Helen, you really don’t have any clout around the House.  The cameras also showed Amanda and McCrae holding each other and crying.  Was one of them going to be back-doored? Aaryn put my suspicions to rest by revealing what she was going to do with the Power of Veto.  She vetoed Jessie’s nomination, and replaced her with Judd!  She told him if she didn’t do this, she would be evicted next week.  How gracious of you, Aaryn!  You can never take any responsibility for your own actions in the House, can you?  Judd?  He was a pal of hers, as well as the rest of the House.

It was quickly time for the second Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony of the night.  Spencer thanked the House Guests, again, for the summer, and that he wanted to stay and play.  Judd told the House he loved all of them, and pleaded with them to keep him in the game.  He also said what was being said about him was wrong, and to change their minds about their vote.  It was another unanimous decision.  Judd was sent packing out of the BB House.  It was the first time this season I saw just about the whole House sad about someone leaving the game.  I say just about because Helen and Elissa were the only ones for really upset, and Judd didn’t want them to hug him.  Whoa, that’s huge, since Judd was such a nice guy.  I liked him, he was so real with the House Guests.

Well, Readers, this wraps up Double Eviction Night!  It was a crazy one, though.  I loved the Candice-GinaMarie verbal cat-fight!  I can’t wait for Gina-Marie to leave the House.  The best part about Double Eviction Nights is that , unless it’s apparent who the power players are, you never know for sure who will be the second person evicted.  Tonight was one of these nights.  Judd’s quick dismissal from the House left me with a lot of unanswered questions.  Why would Helen go after Judd?  What will happen to the House now that Judd’s gone?  Will new battle lines be drawn because Judd is gone?  We’ll find all of this out when you return to my blog for the next BB 15 episode wrap-up!

Until my next post, Readers!

Big Brother 14, Episode #19 – Ian’s Mission: Accomplished?

Hey Readers!

It was a special episode of BB.  It was a double eviction night! That’s right, two houseguests will be leaving the BB House in one night.  For those of you not familiar with BB, this means that someone will an HoH for about 30 minutes.  It’s great if you have someone in your sights, and you want to get rid of them, but you don’t get to enjoy the other HoH perks, like having an HoH Room, or safety from slop for a week.  Will Ian’s silent mission of getting rid of the Boogie, and eventually Frank, be accomplished tonight, or will the House get swayed by Boogie’s rhetoric, sending Jenn home?  Read on to find out.

Boogie was still reeling from Shane’s decision not to put Dan up on the block. He spoke with Shane about this choice in Shane’s HoH Room along with a gaggle of other houseguests present.  Boogie thought he was being jerked around.  If you remember my last BB post, Boogie thought he could influence Shane’s veto choice by speakjng to him right before the Veto Ceremony.  Boogie has to stop believing his own hype and realize everything can’t go his way all the time.  Shane told Boogie he didn’t jerk him around, and he made a move that would benefit his game.

Boogie was then pressuring Dan to admit it was he that has become the turncoat of their alliance.  Ian, the real turncoat, just sat quietly while Dan, once again, took the heat for Ian’s actions.  That’s really uncool, Ian.

When Jenn and Shane were alone, she then asked him why he would put her on the block.  Shane told her she was a pawn, and that Boogie was the target.  No one likes being the pawn, so Jenn then asked why he didn’t put Joe up.  Shane explained to her that she had nothing to worry about.  Jenn was still wary about this plan once their talk was over.

During the live portion of the show, Julie Chen informed to the houseguests about the double eviction happening that night. The houseguests were shocked and excited about what was to come.  They were also told that the second person evicted that night would become the first jury member, being sequestered at the BB Jury House until Finale Night.

At the Live Vote and Eviction, Jenn gave the “I Love  Everyone” speech, then commented on how it was uncool of her former Coach and teammate to be campaigning against her, and to vote for whoever will advance their game.  Boogie thanked family and friends, then turned to Joe, telling him it was payback time since he saved Joe last week.  The vote was 5-2 to keep Jenn in the House.  I was cheering so loud when I saw Boogie’s hopes and threats die before his eyes.  During his goodbyes, Ian and Boogie spoke to each other, then Boogie told Frank than Ian couldn’t be trusted, then walked out the door.  During the Farewell Messages after Julie Chen’s interview, Boogie learned of Ian’s betrayl.  Boogie was proud of what, he felt, he taught Ian in order to get him evicted.  Thanks, Ian, for inflating his ego even further!  At least Part One of Ian”s plan has come to fruition.

The houseguests then got ready for the HoH Competition, Before or After.  The houseguests had to guess if a certain event Julie Chen described happened before or after another event occured. The winner was the player that got all of the questions right.  At the end of the game, Ian finally came out victorious.  It is bitter-sweet, though, because he finally has power in the House, but it will rushed and short-lived.  Now Ian has a chance to complete his mission in one night.  Let’s see if he can do it.

Everyone was rushed into the House to have the Nomination Ceremony. Ian had about two minutes to decided that he wanted Frank and Ashley up for eviction.  Ah, is this sweet revenge for his failed showmance with Ashley, or is there something else going on that we don’t know about?

Somewhere Over the Veto was the PoV Competition.  The HoH, the Nominees, Shane, Dan and Joe had to find two clovers at the end of their lanes, then had to get the veto.symbol and race to hit the buzzer in order to win the PoV.  After racing back and forth along their lanes, Frank won the PoV to save himself from joining Boogie on the outside of the BB House.

The houseguests then rushed back inside for the PoV Meeting.  Of, course, Frank took himself off the block, forcing Ian to replace him with another player.  Poor Joe was them bestoded with this honour.

At the second Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony, Ashley gave a speech that made no sense.  Surprisingly, Joe just stood up and sat down.  It was probably because of the yammering speech the last time he was in this position.  The vote was 5-1 to evict Ashley.  She became the first BB Jury member, and will be sequestered at the BB Jury House.

Wow! That was a lot of BB for one night.  It got my mind whirling, wondering what to make of Ian’s nominations.  I think Ian’s plans were slightly foilled by Frank’s good luck, or his poor decision making. Why not backdoor Frank to make sure he couldn’t win PoV to save himself?  Was revenge really the reason Ashley was put up?  I can’t wait for the next episode to find out the answers to these questions.

Until my next post, Readers!
