Well I might as well start off the blog by saying there was alcohol and this happened:
Amanda walked around in underwear with bandaids on her nipples for a good portion of the night and got Big Brother to spout off some new lines including "ZIIIIING".
Outside of the alcohol the last 24 hours has mostly been a mass of flipping and flopping. Helen, Amanda, and Andy are still on a mission to save Elissa at all costs and will stop at nothing. They have been running their mouths (Andy in particular) all day and night to anyone who would listen about how important it is to keep Elissa. Helen now believes that Nick is related to past HGs Dan or Will and decided to tell everyone that she has figured it out from her DR clues. She seems to think this will make them vote him out as opposed to Elissa.
Elissa is still planning to put Nick up at the veto ceremony (most likely in the morning) and feels she has the votes to get him out. She flip flopped a little between he and Kaitlin, but ultimately landed on Nick as predicted.
There have been several meetings with various members of the MC alliance to chat about votes and make sure they can still get Elissa out. Everyone says they are on board. The one major problem is that McCrae is telling them he has Amanda under his thumb and that she is going to vote with them. This is not really true. Amanda is absolutely set on getting rid of Nick and keeping Elissa to the point of fighting with anyone who suggest otherwise and dismissing the idea of switching no matter what McCrae tells her. Howard and Spencer had several meetings where they discussed Amanda's vote not mattering since they have themselves, McCrae, GinaMarie, Jeremy, Kaitlin, and probably Jessie to vote in favor of keeping Nick.
Via the BB grapevine Nick was told that he would likely be the one going up. He said he was not terribly concerned since the votes SHOULD come out in his favor, but he did decide to go and have a chat with Elissa to see if she was going to honor her deal with him to not put him up since he threw the veto for her. She made a bunch of excuses about how he didn't vote for her week one (which she said wouldn't matter if he threw the veto) and then mid conversation she walked out of the have not room leaving Nick mid sentence asking "are you even going to answer my question?". Can we PLEASE get this Reilly beast out of the house?! PLEASE?!
After Nick's conversation with Elissa..or lack of one, GinaMarie came in and of course had a melt down and needed to be comforted by the person about to go up on the block...sigh.. Jeremy also came in with Aaryn and they were all just beginning to talk strategy when conversation cock blocker Andy decided to show up and make sure no one could talk any game without him.
The late night talks have continued between the various groups and are still going on. Lots of flip flops and scrambling already and the veto ceremony hasn't even happened yet.
If all goes as planned then hopefully Elissa will be walking on Thursday, but the pessimist and realist in me knows that many times these things go horribly wrong between wonky votes and people jumping sides, not to mention what production wants, so we will just have to see how it all pans out. Until tomorrow night...
