At the beginning of the night tonight there was a forecast of clear skies with no chance of fireworks. That proved to be at least a little inaccurate.
Early in the night the HGs planned that if they got alcohol they would have a beer pong tournament. This SOUNDED really entertaining in theory. I mean who doesn't like watching beer pong and buzzed HGs? However, it was mostly a flop. Amanda pulled her bossy card out and started controlling all the rules and no one liked the rules she was pushing because it meant very little beer at a very very slow pace for everyone involved. The setup in and of itself proved to be a really difficult process involving many small arguments. They didn't have paper cups at first and then the DR provided them. They decided to play on the pool table meaning they would be outside, so McCrae, Judd, and Spencer being the beer conservationists that they are, wanted to just have water in the cups and do shots of beer on the side...because if you knock over a paper cup you lose some of the 4 precious beers they have. That's not to mention how dirty the ball would get falling into the dirt and then being put back in the beer cups. Amanda insisted though and so they started the game with Beer in the cups and of course the first ball thrown knocked over a cup and they lost beer so the whole thing had to be started again with water. Elissa decided that she was tired of waiting for the whole thing to happen and just poured a glass of wine to drink (and some say she had a beer too, but I didn't see that part myself, so I'm not sure.). This was fine with everyone except Amanda who kept jabbing at her about it. When all was said and done they had mostly just snapped at each other and had a few sips of alcohol each over the course of a few hours.
After the tournament was over, Elissa went upstairs to her HOH room and while everyone else moved to the outside couch to play a few rounds of Telephone. While they were playing and talking Elissa came down and pulled Andy aside to tell him she was kind of freaking out and that he needed to be campaigning because she would absolutely walk out of the house if Aaryn doesn't leave on Thursday. When Andy returned outside, he told the rest of the outside crew a little of what was going on, and Aaryn decided to make up her own version of what she thought was happening. She told everyone that Elissa was just super jealous of her because she had confided in her that she had a crush on Judd and thought he was the hottest guy in the house, and that she was mad that Aaryn was flirting with Judd all day. Amanda decided that even though Judd didn't want her to go talk to Elissa about it, she needed to stir it up. In her mind, if she ran to Elissa with that info, it would make Elissa so uncomfortable that Judd wouldn't be able to work with her. What happened instead was Elissa hysterically laughing and making a joke out of it, and Judd being pissed off at Amanda and Aaryn for stirring up trouble.
Aaryn, Amanda, and McCrae stayed on the outside couch while Judd, GinaMarie, Spencer, and Andy all went over to the hammock to kind of avoid everything that was going on. While they were gone, Aaryn took it as her opportunity to campaign to Amanda and McCrae. She told them that they would be stupid to keep Andy over her when Spencer, Judd, and GinaMarie had all told her they were coming after them and Andy would never be put up again and was going to make it to the final 3. Amanda questioned Aaryn a little further about Spencer saying he would put them up, and then abruptly called Spencer over in front of Aaryn and McCrae to call him out. Spencer called Aaryn a liar and she called him one back and they argued for a while. Spencer finally walked off saying he was done with the conversation, and Amanda came to the conclusion that Spencer was lying and Aaryn was right...they would be stupid to get rid of her.
Aaryn quickly went inside after giving her campaign speech, and Amanda tried to talk to McCrae about the idea of voting out Andy. He shut her down quickly though and basically told her that if those people were coming after them, they are going to come after them anyway, but that Aaryn will still be a liar and untrustworthy and not loyal so they need to keep Andy because he is more solid.
The truth of the matter is that Amanda may be right on the Aaryn thing. Andy is pretty heavily invested in The Exterminators alliance right now, and is ready to get rid of Amanda, but none of them know about that and Andy has had a good poker face about it. The rea trouble will come for them if Amanda gets power this coming week and decides it would be in her better interest to put up Spencer and GM or Spencer and Judd instead of Elissa. I am happy Aaryn is going and Andy is staying though. I really want to see how the whole Exterminators thing plays out this coming week when someone else other than Elissa is in power.
Outside of those conversations, most of the rest of the evening has been spent just having general chit chat between Amanda, McCrae, Judd, Andy, Spencer, and GinaMarie. I'm not sure if they are waiting each other out, or if it's just that no one is tired yet because they all slept until 2pm or later, but for whatever reason they are still up. I don't expect any more drama or any big changes to happen tonight though. I think Aaryn is still going on Thurs. and then next week will depend on a lot of different variables...mainly who wins HOH. As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates. Until tomorrow night...
