The Night Owl

Well, Aaryn is HOH for the freaking 4th time this season, but for once I am actually kind of glad that for the most part Amanda controls her.  I want to see Helen or Elissa evicted this week, and that is likely going to happen. 

As soon as the feeds returned after the HOH live show, we found Amanda once again crying and picking a fight with McCrae because she didn't win HOH.  The amusing part about this particular time was that both McCrae AND Aaryn tried to throw it to her, but she STILL couldn't win it.  I take that back, the MOST amusing part about it was that she crawled behind a trash can in the pantry to cry about it.

Shortly after the hiding behind the trash can incident, Amanda pulled herself together to go immediately get in Aaryn't ear and let her know they were evicting Helen this week.  Aaryn was totally okay with the idea of putting up Elissa and Helen, and Elissa did not help herself by apparently making comments about not wanting to sit near GinaMarie or Aaryn during the live show.

Right before or after (I don't remember which) the time that Amanda and Aaryn were deciding to put up Helen and Elissa (with Spencer as a replacement if one of them comes down) McCrae and Andy had a chat with their fake alliance member Helen and promised her to try to pitch for Spencer to be the one to go up on the block with Elissa so they could vote out Spencer.  This of course won't actually happen, but everyone is trying to get Helen to believe she is not the target.

While Andy and McCrae sweet talked Helen, Amanda filled in Spencer on what was going on in the other room.  Since it's necessary to put up Helen with Elissa (so that Helen can't win veto and use it on Elissa) Spencer will not be going up, so Aaryn and Amanda agreed they must make deals with him this week.

After Helen was finished talking to McCrae and Andy, she went and briefly spoke with Aaryn and GinaMarie about the things Elissa had been saying about them during the live show.  She could tell they were pretty upset and she then fled the room to go find Elissa and try to get her to apologize and play nice with Aaryn to keep herself off the block.  Elissa being..well..Elissa, was not okay with the idea of apologizing to anyone.  Most of her argument consisted of her talking about how she has more to worry about than some 22 year old. She has kids at home.. blah blah blah.  I really thought Rachel was weird in her first season, but finding out that Rachel was the normal one of the two sisters continues to blow my mind on a daily basis.  Elissa proceeded to talk about how she would walk if she were sent to Jury because she would rather go home to her family than spend time with the people in the jury house.

This conversation sent Helen flying back up to the HOH room where Aaryn, Spencer, Andy, McCrae, and Amanda were all hanging out.  Helen turned on the tears and sobbed it out about how she NEEDS Elissa's vote if she is in the final 2, and now she can't help Elissa anymore, but she has to play for herself.  In my opinion, all of this (including the tears) was Helen speak for "You can't put me up on the block if you feel sorry for me because I'm sobbing and I'm a mom."  Apparently I'm not the only one who felt that way since Amanda and McCrae want downstairs and chatted about how they both had no sympathy for what Helen was doing.

Helen eventually calmed down and after that everyone hung out in the HOH (well everyone except for Elissa) and chit chatted for the predominant part of the rest of the night.  They all spent a while telling Helen she just has to play for herself etc..  They did Candice impersonations. They talked about Jury house and how awkward it will be when Jessie gets there, and they tried to make Helen feel comfortable because no one wants her freaking out or knowing she is the target. They want her to believe the target is Elissa, and from what I understand, they want Elissa to believe she is the target as well until they blindside Helen. 

Helen has now gone downstairs and says she is going to bed.  Everyone else seems to be winding down, and I am about to give up since they won't stop talking about production and getting the feeds cut every few seconds.  I am very very VERY excited to see Helen on the block as the target this week, but I do have reservations.  The jury twist was announced on tonight's live show.  The absolute LAST thing I want to happen is to have Helen evicted this Thursday only to bounce RIGHT back into the house by winning the competition against Judd, Jessie, and Candice.  I feel like if Elissa got booted, it would likely be Judd or Jessie (hopefully Judd) going back in, but if Helen goes makes me nervous.  I will just have to see how the week plays out.  For all we know Helen could win veto and save herself leaving them to oust Elissa. Or if Elissa makes them miserable enough this week, they may oust her anyway. 

Either way, there should be a have-not competition this morning followed by nominations in the evening.  Helen and Elissa should go up unless something drastic changes between now and then.  Hopefully nominations bring fireworks! As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight live feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

I don't know. The thought of Helen getting evicted, winning her way back in, getting put back up on the block and evicted a second week in a row warms my cold cold heart.

It really doesn't matter who comes back from Jury. If they are not able to play for HOH or are given some special power, the house will just boot them right back into the Jury. This has to be the most frustrating season ever.

The only reason this didn't work in BBCan, was that the day Gary came back, Dan was a special guest in the house. Originally, they were going to vote him out, but Dan made a couple of them think that they could win against Gary. Only one person could have at that point and Gary booted him in the final 3. Also, that comeback was the worst example of production tampering ever. He should have never won Veto due to him falling asleep after taking so many punishments(one was to stay awake for 24 hours) and it seemed like his buzzer was the only one working at times.

If played right, a returning HG can work, but not if its Candace, Elissa or Helen, as it would feel like production had a hand in helping them get back.

I would love it Helen wins POV and Elissa goes out almost insuring J U DD comes back. It should be done before the HOH and he gets to compete. I think they did let Frank and outgoing HOH play in the reset last year. I'm trying to remember what happened when Brandon came back in Season 13, anyone remember? Anyway, that or they get one week immunity would only be the fair thing. I hope he does play and WINS! Imagine all the fireworks and bus rolling, and back peddling and excitement that would bring! Oh the anticipation......just hope it's not for nought and it all fizzles with Candice or Jessie coming back in or worse yet, Elissa.

The worst part of all this is that the whiny a** b**** Amanda will probably win it, BB15 is the worst season in the history of BB. I've watched them all and I've never seen one suck this hard. As bad as this season is, I may not watch another...

I'd love it if they just decided to eliminate them all and start over, because they are all terrible players and none of them are worthy of winning.

This may backfire on Amanda and McCrae because once Helen is evicted, the jig is up and if Helen comes back into the game and win HOH, she putting up McCranda

If America were to vote on who comes back, they would pick Judd
August 16, 2013 | Unregistered Commentertim
i think this is the 1st time i don't care who wins, just wishing the torture was over.

i would hope that if a jury member comes back they can not be put on the block for the 1st week. is that possible?

and to think i was really looking forward to this season...........

Picking Judd would just result in Elissa going home, as he would not put up Amanda and/or McCrea.

America isn't voting. It's going to be a competition.

When Brendon returned, it was early in the season. The first four evictees were up for a public vote, and then Brendon played a comp against the just-evicted Lawon to come back.

Thanks Scott, but did Brandon get to play in the HOH comp when he came back in?
August 16, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKimG
I don't believe so. But I could be wrong. I think he did get a free pass for a week.
