Well, here we are on eviction night eve and everything hinges on this guy:
Amanda went to work today as usual setting about saving Elissa. Elissa had already been in Jessie's ear a little trying to sway her and so Amanda decided that if Spencer and Howard were not going to vote their way, she would just send Judd on a mission to get Jessie's vote so that she could save Elissa. It worked like a charm and Jessie's vote was swayed.
Nick spent all day campaigning and making sure that everything was still good by the MC and everyone who said that they were keeping him in. They all reassured him that it was, but it seems this may not be the case.
Once Amanda came to McCrae with Jessie's vote being solid, rather than keeping his usual calm and stoic demeanor, he began to celebrate with her. I mean REALLY celebrate about them being able to keep Elissa and vote out Nick. Up until now I have only been nervous and thought that he MAY be tempted to be swayed, but I am now thinking that he might ACTUALLY be voting Nick out. I'm not going to lie, I'm disappointed by it..a lot.
Here are the facts and reasons I think he might keep Nick: If he votes against the MC, he will have 3 strong guys after him plus Aaryn, Kaitlin, and GinaMarie (not that the girls are much of a threat). The MC will expose him and they will immediately want both he and Amanda out. He also dropped hints to Amanda as if he thought that Candice or Jessie would vote wrong possibly preparing her for the vote he would have to claim was not his own.
Here are the reasons I think he IS voting Nick out: He seems to have actually fallen for Amanda the man eater. I think he thinks he may be able to remain protected within the numbers of the until now faux alliance with all the numbers, and also under the shelter of Elissa's weekly MVP protection. Keeping Ellissa could prove to be a strategic move on his part and would separate him from people like Jeremy who are obviously difficult to deal with and unpredictable.
So that's where things stand and it all hangs in the hands McCrae. To my dismay, I think Nick is going home. I shouldn't be surprised, my favorites ALWAYS go home. I think the twist this year is bullshit and this has productions grubby little hands all over it, but when does BB ever NOT screw us with some kind of twist involving past HGs anymore? I know not everyone agrees with me, so I will avoid a rant.
here is where the votes are:
To Keep Elissa: Judd, Andy, Amanda, Jessie, Candice
To Keep Nick: Spencer, Howard, Jeremy, Kaitlin, GinaMarie
Unknown vote: McCrae
It's eviction eve and it looks like we are still going to be stuck with Elissa AGAIN. Everything hinges on the pizza boy from Minnesota. Until tomorrow night....
Well, they were all in bed and I had JUST gone to bed when an alarm sounded and the feeds went to trivia. It is 5am, so I'm not sure I will last through the trivia to update what is going on, but I would be willing to bet it has something to do with tomorrow's HOH competition. Likel clues to some kind of quiz etc... If the feeds come back while I am still awake I will update.
Feeds came back and the HGs said they will be awoken hourly. They are all memorizing numbers and facts. I think this will definitely be the memory comp for HOH.
Most of the HGs are studying together. Jeremy, Kaitlin, and Aaryn have gone back to bed. As a first that I have seen in BB history, Elissa and Amanda are being allowed to use their makeup and some paper to write things down...the other HGs have not been writing them down. I don't know if BB will take the papers away or not.
They are all studying boxes as they go by on a conveyer belt of some sort. Also, shortly before this alarm, McCrae pulled Elissa into the Cockpit to tell her he is voting to keep her no matter what he promises, but that her job is to stay on top of Jessie and constantly remind her why she is voting to get Nick out. Looks like he really has flipped on MC.
