Strap in, kids. Tonight’s going to be a wild ride. If you have watched any of the feeds since Thursday night, or listened to last night’s Big Brother Gossip Show (and if you haven’t, why?), then you know wild shit went down after the live show was over. There was a bit of an online debate regarding if any of that would be shown, but a source told us a few hours before the broadcast that it would indeed be addressed.
It’s a “good”(?) sign that there’s a disclaimer before the show even begins. After the recap of events, we go back to Nick’s eviction. GinaMarie is a mess. “My heart is in pieces.” Oh lord, this is pathetic. Jeremy says he was “flabbergasted beyond belief...we have some goobers in the group”. Aaryn now realizes she’s part of the “minority of the house”. We all know being a minority is her worst dream.
Helen, meanwhile, is celebrating because “her” plan came through. I’m putting in the parenthesis because it wasn’t due to Helen’s work that Elissa was saved. It was Amanda that turned the boys.
We get more footage of GinaMarie bawling as Nick walks out, and Elissa looks at the camera to say she loves America. Jeremy is seen mouthing, “what the fuck”, as Amanda winks at McCrae. GinaMarie runs into the bathroom,, and Aaryn says she has to get herself together for the HOH competition.
Kaitlin, meanwhile, is already yelling at Jessie, who denies voting against their side. GinaMarie comes back out and starts yelling about Elissa’s MVP wins. “All of you’s are so stupid! Cook your own damn chicken parm!” It goes on and on, as Amanda laughs in another room. “You guys are scrubs! You guys are losers!” Amanda is dying.
McCrae then tells us about how he had to choose between the Movers and Amanda. I mae my choice. GinaMarie is still screaming, and Spencer talks about how Jeremy is the one who is making it hard for the Movers to stay together. Instead of giving credit to Amanda for switching sides, he says it was due to Helen’s “emotional pitch”. Ugh. We get a recap of what supposedly happened, instead of what actually happened. Howard claims that he didn’t change votes because he wanted some “wiggle room”.
We then jump to Helen’s HOH victory. She does her wacky little dance, and then tells America’s children to “study”. Ugh. While she’s celebrating, the other side is beyond upset. Jeremy says it’s “not over yet. I’m going to hold my chin high as it’s too pretty to hold it low.” Gross.
Helen,, Elissa, and Candice celebrate their win. Amanda and Jessie also come in, and Helen again does her dumb dance as Elissa says they’re going to change the attitude in the house. Jeremy comes in and congratulates her on her victory. “I am flabbergasted by your game play.” Really?
Aaryn and Kaitlyn go into the lounge to do what they do best...whine. Again, they complain about being the “minority”. GinaMarie then comes in with Nick’s hat and shorts. “I really liked him. I really liked him. We were getting closer.” She’s just nuts. She even blows her nose into the shorts in the diary room.
Jump ahead a few hours, and Aaryn, Kaitlin, and Jeremy are reclaiming the beds they want. too bad one of them is the one that Jessie has been sleeping in her entire stay. They go full “mean girls” on her, and complain about her changing loyalties. Jessie counters that they’ve never had her back, and Kaitlin commands her to “get the fuck out of here”. Judd comes in, and pulls her out of the room. “Judd can be your fifth chance at a showmance.”
The catty comments contniue, and then suddenly Aaryn tears apart Candice’s bed as Kaitlin laughs. We go to commercials...
When we return, Jessie comes back in and climbs into her bed. Kaitlin decides to also get into her bed, and Jessie asks her to leave. Candice then comes in, and wonders what the story is with her bed. Kaitlin plays dead. Jeremy then comes in, and climbs into Jessie’s bed. Jeremy and Kaitlin continue to harass her, and Candice jumps in.
Aaryn then walks into the room, and Candice complains about her bed being flipped. Aaryn then goes into full stereotype “what’cha gonna do, guuuurl?” mode. Howard walks in, and Candice informs him what happened as Aaryn goes into that type of talking again. Howard tries to get Candice to leave the room as now GinaMarie gets into Candice’s face. Finally, Howard lifts her over his shoulders and carries her out of the room as the mean kids laugh.
Howard pleads with Candice to let them have the bed for the night, as he can’t control his temper if this continues. Candice complains about all of the racial slurs she’s had to endure these past three weeks, and Howard embraces her. Howard understands how she wants to stand up for what is right, but one can’t do that in this game. Seriously, you should go watch this on Flashback, as it is a tear jerker. Even this curmudgeon had to wipe a tear or two away when he first saw this go down. Candice finally leaves the room, and Howard sits down and prays with tears in his eyes.
Meanwhile, the mean girls are still yelling at Jessie, and Amanda overhears it. She’s had enough. This is another great moment, as she bitches at them for their cattiness. Not only to the rest of the house, but each other. “That’s why she came over to the other side. It all makes sense!” She goes on about how everybody is talking about Aaryn’s racial comments, and Aaryn denies making any of them. “I tried to help you.” She ends it by saying she’s going to go have fun with the other side of the house. Again, go watch this on Flashback. It was amazing.
Candice is now in the bathroom crying. She says she has never seen anybody as awful as Aaryn, and she tells the whole story of what happened to Helen, ANdy, and Elissa. Helen has had enough, and she says that anybody who has ever been a victim of abuse is cheering for her right now. “We’re going to vote them out.”
After commercials, Amanda and McCrae are laying in the lounge together, and McCrae says he has a secret to tell her. He then tells her all about The Moving Company. He’s hoping this creates a bigger bond between the two as he informs her of the whole story. Amanda says at first she thinks good job as it even fooled her. He goes on to say about how they told him he needs to drop her, but no way was he going to drop his queen.
Meanwhile, GinaMarie is still crying over Nick, and Aaryn and Candice try to cheer her up. Candice says she can’t help “as a woman” to not console her. Aaryn then apologizes. Sort of. She says she has “nothing against any other race”, and claims in the diary room that she is not that type of girl. Of course, she also doesn’t Candice to use it against her. Candice says she accepts her apology, but in the diary room says she doesn’t believe her. “To me, her apology is like dirt.”
It’s Have-Not competition time, and it’s a barnyard setup. After the seriousness of the last half hour, I could give a shit about this, except for the fact that Howard wants to throw it so that Aaryn, GinaMarie, and Kaitlin are have-nots for the week. Let’s jump to the conclusion - the Have-nots this week are Amanda, McCrae, Judd, and Jessie. Somehow, GinaMarie concludes that this is retribution for Nick’s departure.
Jeremy now runs upstairs to confess all to Helen. I just don’t get why it’s so important for everybody to know about The Moving company. Helen is all cocky because she “killed the Moving Company”. No, you didn’t. Jeremy also throws Kaitlin under the bus, and he says he “didn’t come in here to make a wife”. Helen loves this, and “maybe I can use Jeremy in this game”.
We’re showing way too much of this “kiss the ring” stuff, as Howard now comes in. Unlike Jeremy, though, he doesn’t follow through in telling all. He lies about the Movers. He lies about his vote. He finally admits that he voted to evict Elissa, and Helen starts crying. He still lies about the Movers, and Helen is disappointed.
It’s finally nomination time, and Elissa’s key is first, followed by Andy, Candice, McCrae, Amanda, GinaMarie, Judd, Jessie, Howard, Spencer, and Jeremy. Aaryn and Kaitlin are the nominees. Helen gives a bullshit speech about how they are strong competitors and they can save themselves in the veto competition. Ho hum.
Little of substance is said in the final seconds of the show. They hate being on the block. Jeremy didn’t come here to get married. Helen wants Aaryn to go home, but she has bigger targets. “Watch out. Here comes Helen.”
What did you think of tonight’s episode? Were you happy with how they treated the extreme behavior? How about those noms? Tell us what you think!
