The Night Owl

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...

You may not want Elissa in power but she is the only one in this game that has made a move in the house. Everyone else is afraid of Amanda. Amanda already pointed out that she has been in control of "every eviction in the house." I agree with you though, it should be interesting if anyone other than Amanda and Mcrea win the next head of house hold.

For the feed watchers I would think it might be the most fun to see Amanda finally win a HOH and put up Ellisa and Judd. The Flip Flop of GM and Andy would be pretty funny. Personally I would love to see Amanda sent packing and finally watch Mccray do his thing and start playing the game I think he is capable of playing. As always Ash great job and thank you for the Owl.
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterbigbrothergossipfanguy
I would love to see Amanda win HOH just to see it go to her head and she be even more of a boss than she is now. If it was her room she would be wanting to have more sex than Mcrae would want to have and he might get fed up with her. It seems like he wants to pull away from her. He doesn't love her like she does him. We will just have to wait an see!

I've been listening to the BBGossip podcast and reading this blog for a long time, unfortunately, I guess I'll have to tone it down. I can't handle such an amazing group of people marred by one person's hate. Scott, Collette and Mike hate all the houseguests equally and it is funny, but completely inaccurate information from Ashley night after night is annoying and she's just fueling the hate fire that has made fans ruin this season. It's sad to have three great personalities' credibility ruined by one person doing the exact thing the rest fight against.
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJessica
Jessica, what are you talking about?? I have the feeds, but don't watch late at night, so I read a couple of blogs to see what went on. Ash's Night Owl always pretty much meshes with the other blogs I read, so I don't know how you can say it's completely inaccurate. And she's one of the least biased bloggers out there!!! Oh, wait... I guess she must have said something negative about your favorite, so now she's not credible.

And FYI, Colette is one of the most biased bloggers I've come across, and makes no apologies for it, which is what makes her so entertaining to read/listen to.
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterkaycee14
I support Ash 110% - there are fans of EVERY houseguest. Ash makes no bones that she doesn't care for Amanda. Yet she is always pretty darn accurate in her reporting of events, if she wasn't she wouldn't still be here writing.

She gets virtually nothing for writing all this up EVERY night this season and I for one use it as my first resource when I get up in the morning.

She also spends hours snagging audio that we use on the show - and for every minute of audio you hear I can promise you she's listened to 30 or more minutes.

If we all liked the same HG or agreed about everything it would be very boring here. The difference is we DONT all agree yet we respect each other's opinions.

TargetJohn was and is a HUGE Helen fan (and wants Amanda out).
Ash likes Judd (I'm guessing she wants Amanda out too).
I don't much care too much one way about one HGs or another with the exception of wanting Elissa out. I never wanted her in.
Can't tell ya where Scott's head is at exactly - but I know he was happy to see Helen walk out the door.
And out fellow podcaster Colette? AMANDA AMANDA AMANDA - yeah she kinda is rooting for her. So be it.

Its a game, root for who you want but don't call other fans names just because they are rooting for someone you don't like.

The fact that you assumed I was defending Amanda are hilarious--because I wasn't. It's not just Amanda.
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJessica
Don't count Aaryn out ..she's smarter than you think..Andy made a fatal mistake forming a new alliance too soon. Now Aaryn is reeling GM back in with the girls against the guys strategy...which will work..unless they're stupid. Plus you know Andy's betrayal will be exposed!!!
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNancy
Great commentary, Ash. I have absolutely no idea what Jessica is talking about in her response so I wouldn't let it get to you. Some of the fans this year are very strange.

I'm thinking it would be interesting to see Andy leave on Thursday. We'll see.
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterGypsy Woman
Also, because I expressed my opinion I must be a "weird first time fan" even though I have watched all 15 seasons of this show since it first aired--as I believe I said in my post.

I think part of the reason this season has been so rife with problems from the outside is that anyone of any different opinion is treated this way. I simply disagree with Ashley's portrayal of last night, and this isn't the first time. I expressed that. I sincerely apologize for expressing myself. I'll never do it again.
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJessica
Jessica, since you didn't specify what inaccuracies you feel exist - I went with the easiest one because out podcast specifically has been accused of 'favoring' Amanda all season. It would be logical for me to think that since you seem to like our podcast - and dislike something in Ash's post - it might be her obvious dislike of Amanda.

And I really doubt you found it 'hilarious' - annoying maybe - odd possibly - but you're telling me you giggled to yourself uncontrollably at my last response? No way. :)
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterindymike
Thanks Kaycee, Mike, and Gypsy Woman for the support. You guys rock! =)

As Mike said, we all support each other. I work with and around very talented writers and commentators. We all like different people and that is what makes BB fun. If someone wants a play by play and not an opinion they can go read Jokers. People who actually do read my posts and tweets obviously know how appalled I am by the extreme hate (which is much different than not liking someone) aimed at the HGs and their families and personal lives. I do not in any way encourage any of that behavior and speak against it often when I am tweeting live updates. The fact that people act insane and do things that completely cross the line will not stop me from having an opinion and voicing it though. It also won't make me enjoy a person as a player or pretend that I do. I would stand up for any of them in every way that I could when it comes to hate that crosses a line (personal info, messing with families etc..) but that is much different than anything I do here.

I would call BS on someone having read and listened "for a while" and calling me "Ashley". Who is that? I did 2 years on the air with BBG before my job got in the way of being able to do it this year, and I don't think anyone ever called me that once. In fact, I don't think anyone (besides teachers when I was in trouble) has ever called me that. Regardless, if someone doesn't get it, they just don't get it. That's fine with me. I don't think threatening to "tone it down" with reading/listening to the other writers/podcasters because you don't like me is going to do much though. Obvious as it sounds, why not just read and listen to everything/everyone EXCEPT my blog? If that seems super easy, it's because it IS.

BigBrotherGossipFanGuy: Thank you also for your support. Your comment about summing up Scott's comments in a "Night Owl" blog cracked me up yesterday. I also agree with you. If Amanda got HOH it would be funny to watch Andy and GinaMarie scramble and flip flop all over the place all week. The entertainment would be high, but I, like you, would also like to see McCrae play by himself and see what he could do. I think he may be a pretty powerful player if left to his own devices, and that's one of the reasons I would like to see Amanda go. She overshadows him so much it's hard for people to even see that he is playing.

Thanks to everyone else for your comments. I don't always have time to comment back, but I do appreciate all of your opinions and speculations. =)

It will end up girls against guys because Amanda is too much for McCrae...who is more suited to Judd. Did you see how he cried when Judd was evicted ? Will GM convince Elissa to join the girls team? This is when egomania may ruin it for her.
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNancy
Jessica, contribute as much as you want. Tell us when you don't agree. Nobody is saying you're a noob or you have to agree with any of us. BUT just because your perspective of events is different than Ash (or anybody) doesn't mean that either of you are wrong. I love discussing the show with those of differing opinions, as long as there is a real give and take. :)
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterScott
I accidentally posted on TargetJohn's last post, lol

I actually did laugh pretty hard, I am a Judd fan, and I don't like Amanda. I guess I should start including a resume of who I enjoy watching any time that I comment on a blog post. In this particular instance I feel that Ashley chose to focus on the negatives of the night, completely ignoring the fun that was had, the flirtiness between Judd and Aaryn that continued even after the tiff, the constant groaning and complaining by GinaMarie, instead focusing on how everything is from Elissa's perspective. It is a trend that has developed in recent posts by Ashley (who's writing I enjoy--her humor is good to me and I have no issue with a lot of the content). I just feel like recently she focuses on Elissa and things through her eyes. I do not mean to say that she likes Elissa or is biased towards her, I just would like to see more focus on other dynamics--GM and Spencer, Judd and Aaryn, etc. I know that Amanda and Elissa are the stars of the CBS show but they are far from the main stars of the feeds.

I am actually a little taken aback that so many who are behind Big Brother Gossip has decided to get in on this conversation, but I appreciate you asking me to defend myself. I listen to your show and have for a have for about three years now--and I rarely comment, I just felt this time warranted it. I apologize.

bet Jessica is mad at Ash because Ash has prettier hair than her just like I hate Scott for being such a chick magnet and his sexy radio show voice. You know when it gets towards the end of the show and he gets a slurry from the booze? ya I get jealous

No resume needed, Jessica. We appreciate your contributions. :)

And shut up, BBGFanGuy. lol
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterScott
Jessica, Stick around and feel free to give your opinions. I always feel welcome here and enjoy the fun jabs we all give each other minus the hate from other sites .This is the only site I feel comfortable in giving my thoughts on the HG and Activities in the house without having my head chewed off. I have to add that this is the first year I don't agree with Ash and find myself agreeing with Mike, Scott and Colette. Believe me that wasn't always the case. I am a huge JeJo and Dan fan.Sometimes the steam would rise from my ears from the remarks about my favs. But they are always done in jest and with no ill intent. This site is a real treat and I am so thankful that I found it years ago and am still able to enjoy my summer addiction without all the hate that is out there now.
Take it from me sooner or later you too will find Miss Ash to be a genius in her opinions just like I did for many years. Only this year it is Colette, Mike and Scott who I find right on. It's all subjective.
As I stated last week, I would like for Aaryn to go this week, then Elissa next week, then GM, then finally Amanda followed by McCrae so he can be tortured in the Jury house with all the crazy females. Final three of Spencer, J U DD and Andy with Spencer getting the justified boot last. I don't care who is HOH as long as all the females aren't anywhere near the prize and that includes the nutless wonder. Oh, and keep the feeds entertaining. I enjoy watching the guys goof around and cringe with all the females in the house.
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKimG
Thanks Kim! We agree more this year than you think. I want the same final 3 that you do. Judd is my favorite and ideally I would like he and Andy in the final 2. But regardless of whether we agree or don't, you have been commenting here since long before I joined this site, and I appreciate your comments and opinions. (even if you do like JeJo =P..kidding..of course)

Lol BBGFanGuy! You seriously crack me up. Are you on twitter? I tried to give you a shout out there last night, but I wasn't sure if you used twitter or just commented here.
August 28, 2013 | Registered CommenterAsh
I've been lurking here today but wanted to chime in with some words of support both for Jessica and for fellow contributor Ash.

Jessica, as others have said above, I too hope that you keep reading / listening to Big Brother Gossip -- and KEEP COMMENTING, without apology. My feeling after reading all of the above is that nothing said here was meant to cause offense ... and that if there were misunderstandings of intent in the commentary, it's due to the fact we're doing this in written form, without benefit of vocal intonations and facial expressions.

Indy Mike and I work nearby and eat lunch together some days. If I were to post a comment on one of his posts which said "You're a freaking idiot! I can't believe you don't think Elissa should be on the show this year" ... well, Elissa fans might start heaping hate on me rather thoroughly.

But if I say exactly the same thing to Mike while we're together at the Greek diner down the street while we simultaneously smile, laugh, and munch on delicious gyros & fries, nobody would misunderstand my intent.

That's my sense of today's comments conversation, anyway. Unfortunate limitations of this form of communication resulting in misunderstandings of intent.

All opinions, when offered in a civil tone, even when in disagreement, are welcome on BigBrotherGossip. Jessica, I think your comments certainly fit!

As for myself ... I pretty much am rubbed the wrong way by about 80% of what Colette writes over on her blog, and I was annoyed regularly when both Ash and Scott constantly whined how they didn't like Helen and wanted her to go. But then I try to think about how I'd interpret their same words if we were together at a coffee shop. I'd probably smile, laugh, call them idiots, and buy each of us another cappuccino. Because Ash, Scott, and Colette all rock. :-)

Deep breath, everybody. There's a lot worse "hate" going on elsewhere. It's possible to agree, disagree, and even agree to disagree ... while laughing together at the fact we're all sharing in the idiocy which is reality television.

(Jessica, want me to delete the comment you accidentally posted in the wrong place -- over on my last post?)
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTarget John
I agree with TargetJohn's comment, and I didn't mean any offense "Ash" I just wanted to express my general reaction and I am sorry that it came out negatively.

And yeah, deleting the comment would be great. : )
August 28, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJessica
Ty. If I misunderstood your intent, I'm sorry. I do encourage you to continue to post your thoughts and opinions if you wish. I welcome the variety.
August 28, 2013 | Registered CommenterAsh
WOW, Look at all the comments the last 2 blogs have caused!!!! Love it. But what I don't understand is why some people are thinking this site and the bloggers are biased to a certain hamster or 2? I have been watching BB and the live feeds for at least 5 years and this is the only site I have found over those years that do not push certain hamsters on us or delete our comments because we don't agree with what is being written or the game play of the hamsters. Esp Target John who is new to the BB experience. Give me a break. This is a game for $500,000 and we are not the ones who are locked up in a house with cameras and mics around our neck 24/7.. This is one of two sites that I read on a daily basis and I read Colette's just because I love how she writes. Plus she is a AManda fan as am I. I love listening to the weekly podcast for the same reasons.

What I don't do anymore is read the live feed chat or tweet about my thoughts because of the HATE from the so called 'fans'. What they are dishing out the year towards certain hamsters and their families are 100X worse then what the hamsters are doing. No I do not agree with the actions of some of hamsters but who is to say that I would not do the same thing if I were in the house. Except for the racist comments, not taking showers for days on end or having SEX on the live feeds. LOL
But like Target John has figured out, it is the chaos I love and what I will miss by the end of the season when all but 3 hamsters are in the jury house.
So Ash, Colette, Scott, Mike and Target John keep up the excellent blogs and podcasts!!!

It would be a boring place to come and read about BB and have everyone gush or crush the same people. It's the variety that brings the fun. I would hope Jessica can see there is mocking in a fun adult way and not straight up hate. I too hope she continues to read and post on the site. Now as for Scott I heard he wanted to get rid of all the girls on here so he could have intelligent conversations and not all the mush girl stuff. But maybe I miss heard him and he wanted to get rid of all the guys so he could have the ladies to himself. Either way this is a place of INCLUSION Scott. Geesh Oh and TargetJohn when you are having lunch with Ikers does he talk you to sleep with all that tech talk?
