Big Brother Season 15, Episode 18 Recap

A cone of shame. A clown-itard. Multiple tanning sessions. A contest to determine a place at a barbecue. Yes, tonight is going to be full of silliness.

Yet it won’t be all giggles. There will be a MVP nominee reveal that will revive a whole mess of paranoia, culminating in an extremely contentious POV competition that will bring the ugly side of at least two competitors. Yes, this will be a strange episode that will be talked about for quite some time. Or at least until tomorrow’s eviction.

Before we get to that silliness, though, we have to relive the moment GinaMarie nominated Candice and Jessie. GinaMarie says that Candice is “pretty much my target”, as she’s a rat and “drama queen”. Jessie is just a pawn. She goes on to utter stupidity about how New Yorkers “tell it like it is”. Stop this, diary room.

Candice says she’s “appalled” by GinaMarie’s comments, and admits that she feels like an outsider. We hear GinaMarie inform the girls that she wants to talk to them upstairs. Uh oh. Jessie is also bummed out about GinaMarie’s comments, and says she’s “going to fight hard to remain here”. Meanwhile, Amanda and Judd run into the cockpit room to make fun of GinaMarie’s speech.

Jessie is first to talk to GinaMarie, who compliments her about being a “beast” at POV. “You’re not going home.” Candice is her target, and she wants Jessie to remain cool for the week. Jessie says that she’ll definitely have her back.

Candice is downstairs, and Judd apologizes to her. Candice says she has “thick skin”, so none of this matters to her. GinaMarie then yells for her to come upstairs, but she really doesn’t want to. She does anyway, and complains about how “harsh” GinaMarie was to her. This is a dumb conversation that we covered on last week’s Big Brother Gossip Show. Neither of these two ladies are really good at speaking, and it’s pretty much all silliness. GinaMarie, though, somehow believes that this conversation is going to smooth things over.

Now we have the first moment of MVP discussion. Spencer seems to be the only one who truly believes that viewers are picking the third nominee, although he says in the diary room that he has no clue. Amanda is the one who is completely convinced that it’s not America, and she claims that the public wouldn’t vote her up. Even McCrae laughs at that comment. “I’ve been getting out all the mean people in the house. I don’t see why they’d put me up.” The rest of the room is speechless.

Jessie is now seen going up to the HOH room again, where everybody is hanging out. Nobody really talks to her, and Amanda complains about her sitting down next to McCrae. She calls for McCrae to move next to her, “which is annoying”. She then gets up and leaves the room, and McCrae says he doesn’t know what is wrong. “This is so high school it’s ridiculous.”

McCrae tracks her down in the bedroom, where she tells him he’s “annoying”. She brings up why he wouldn’t move next to her, and we then have a really silly argument. An annoyed McCrae finally gets up and walks away.

The next scene shows McCrae walking into the bathroom as Amanda is taking a shower, and the discussion carries on. “Girls like that drive me up the wall”, she says. She then complaisn that he’s not responding, and McCrae says in the diary room that she is now reminding him of past girlfriends. She asks if he’s mad at her, and he’s still quiet. “Can you talk, please. You’re driving me crazy.” He adds in the diary room that if he was to separate from her she would probably come after him. “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and Amanda can scorn.”

After the first commercials, it is time to find out the identity of the third nominee. You probably already guessed, but it’s Amanda. She’s obviously not happy. “Why??? It doesn’t make any sense!” Meanwhile, Jessie is fighting back a smile. McCrae says that her attitude hasn’t been doing her any favors in recent days. The other plays in the competition are Judd and Spencer, with Aaryn as the host.

Now Candice and Elissa are giggling in the cockpit room, and Helen joins them. Helen tells Candice that she “needs to keep your brain focused’ to get herself off the block. They suddenly think that Judd is the MVP. Amanda is walking in, and Elissa asks if it is Judd. She agrees. “He just acts super weird.”

Amanda then pulls Judd aside and asks him if he’s MVP. He doesn’t reply, but says if he wins MVP he’s going to use it on Jessie. Amanda replies, “are you serious?” He then changes it to acting like he’s going to use it on Jessie, but actually use it on her. Amanda complains that he is being sketchy.

She then approaches Spencer to see if he’d use it on her, and he’s pretty non-committal. In the diary room, though, he’s not as afraid to say no way. “It would be like if the Joker went to Batman looking for help”. They promise to talk later about it, though.

Amanda then walks into the HOH, and GinaMarie hugs her and says that she didn’t expect it again. She wonders why anybody would do that, and McCrae says that it’s her own fault because of her attitude. Amanda doesn’t see it that way. “It is stupid. It doesn’t make any sense.” GinaMarie says that she would definitely use it on her, but she should win it herself.

For some reason, this makes Aaryn walk out the door, complaining that she’s so selfish. Amanda continues on, complaining that Aaryn is pissed because that would potentially put her up instead.

Andy is now in the storage room with McCrae, talking about how pissed Aaryn is about this. “In front of Aaryn, she should not be pushing for GinaMarie to use it on her.” McCrae then back upstairs, and tells GinaMarie to just keep it for herself. Guess who is right behind him, though?

Yeah, this isn’t going to go well. Amanda wants to know why he’s fighting to keep her on the block. Aaryn says the “same reason you’re worried is why I’m worried”. McCrae complains that Amanda thinks everybody owes her something, which they don’t.

Oh God, this is continuing. She’s now in the have-not room with tears, and Judd tells her not to worry. She starts yelling at McCrae again, and she refuses to understand their fight. “You need to stop your dictatorship in this relationship.”

It’s now time for the competition. The backyard is set up like a froggery (is that a word), which greatly pleases Judd. They have to sling their frogs into the pond, and the last place person in each round is out. They then pull a prize, which can be traded in for whomever is lower than them.

Jessie is up first, and gets a three. McCrae gets a five, Candice a 4, Judd a 8, Amanda a 23, and Gina completely misses the target. She’s out, and her prize is the veto! (Temporarily, of course.)

In round two, Spencer goes first with a five. Candice gets 24, Judd an 8, Jessie a 4, and Amanda only gets a 1. She’s now out, and her “prize” is the Code of Shame. Obviously, she trades it with GinaMarie’s veto.

In round three, Judd kicks it off with a 21, followed by Jessie’s 9, and Spencer’s 5. Before the final throw, though, Candice whispers to Judd that Amanda thinks he’s the MVP. “They think you’re shady.” He says he’s not MVP, and Candice replies, “they call me a rat. I’ll be a rat.”

Amanda catches on, and tells her to “shut your big fat mouth”. In the diary room, Amanda complains that Candie is digging her own grave, as her plan was to push for Jessie to go home instead. Amanda says that maybe Candice is actually the MVP. Candice then starts sing-songing a stupid reply about “all day I’ll put you up”.

Oh boy. Amanda’s response? “That’s the Saniqua coming out in you, I guess.” Sigh. Elissa is smiling, but complains in the diary room that comments like that should not be made. Amanda continues on, bitching that everybody made fun of her in school because she acts like a fool. McCrae pleads with her to stop.

Finallly, Candice is up to toss, and her throw goes right into the water. Amanda continues to make fun of her as she opens her prize to find a Bahamas vacation. She trades it for the veto.

Amanda won’t let things drop, though, asking why she won’t let things drop and that she is the reason Howard went home. “You have no gameplay.”

“It’s the wrong game, boo”, replies Candice, and continues to bark at Amanda, who says she’s “fucking nuts”. Of course, the real insult of the competition isn’t heard, as it’s about Howard’s penis.

Round 4 finally begins with Judd getting a 23, Jessie getting 13, and Spencer hitting only a 6. His prize? “50 shades of orange”, which GinaMarie begs to receive. Instead, he trades it for the vacation.

Now it’s the final round, and Jessie hits the 50 but it falls into the water. Judd then throws a 20 to win the competition! Amanda then starts yelling some more, as does Candice. “I’d rather Jessie get it any day of the year over you.” Judd tells her to do just that. Her envelope is for five grand, but she obviously trades it for the veto. Judd’s prize is the clownitard, and he trades it for the money, making Jessie the holder of the POV!

Amanda is pissed, but at least Candice didn’t win either. Candice, meanwhiles, hopes that the fight will ultimately save her.

It’s now the aftermath of the competition, and Amanda and McCrae have yet another fight. “I told you to shut up, and you then keep going.” Amanda says that Candice is stupid, and McCrae says that she is the stupid one. “Am I supposed to just sit there?” McCrae says she’s running around like a bully, but Amanda doesn’t understand. She finally tells him to just leave.

In the kitchen, Aaryn and Elissa are laughing about the clownitard. Candice walks into the room, and says she’s just “going to stay calm and collected” in hopes that the target moves on to Amanda. Aaryn is now worried that Elissa may try to save Candice.

Aaryn heads upstairs to tell GinaMarie about what she thinks about Elissa’s plans. She wants Elissa to be put up as Jessie’s replacement.

It’s now time for funny filler. Candice heads in for her clown costume, and comes out to much laughter. Spencer says she’s handling it “really cool”, though.

Next up is Amanda’s “50 shades of orange”, which means she gets a spray tan whenever the music comes on. “I look like a raccoon”, she complains. “God, I’m good looking.”

Finally, it’s the cone of shame, and, of course, GinaMarie is relishing every second. We get a montage of her life in the house with that stupid thing on her head.

Back to the game, as Helen heads into the HOH room to ensure “my allies are safe”. We get the classic “I really like you” lines from Helen, and then GinaMarie tells her about what they’re hearing about Elissa. Oh no, this can’t happen. Helen goes full bore on her “I love you” bullshit, and how she wants to keep both her and Elissa in this game. Funny stuff, really.

It’s now time for the show’s conclusion, and Jessie again for reasons that make no sense stares at the picture wall. She calls everybody in, and takes herself down. GinaMarie then puts up Spencer, who says he’s in a pretty good spot next to these two people. Amanda also thinks she’s safe, though. Candice thinks that Amanda is “more of a threat than me”, and promises “world war three in the big brother house this week”.

That’s it for the night. Remember, tomorrow night is double eviction night. What did you think of tonight’s episode? Were you happy with the editing of the POV fight? Or how crazy Amanda came off? What about the Cone of Shame? Let us know your thoughts!

Wow. If the MVP twist doesn't end, Amanda is going to be on the block every single week. That is two really bad (but well-deserved) edits in a row. I can't wait to see her go.

The reign of terror of Demanda continues...

They certainly edit like McCrae is getting smarter about his "queen", but smart enough to turn on Demanda? One can only hope...

My hope is that the RESET button that Julie has alluded to means that the MVP twist is over. I am hoping that Candace goes this week as planned and that Spenser is the second eviction with either Amanda or Helen winning the second HOH. It would be great to see the remainder of the house divide in a big way this next week as Amanda or Helen are forced to nominate from the remaining group and target the real threats. Part of me wants Amanda safe for another week just to watch the hater "fans" of BB continue to stew in their obsessive hatred. In other news, GM's histrionics about her HOH blog made me go to the CBS site to check it out; a first for me. I can certainly see why she was so concerned about it. If this girl has a high school diploma, or even a middle school diploma, the issuing educational establishments should lose their accreditation. Also, Nick may just want to skip out on the CBS after party.

I was pretty stunned by the Amanda edit tonight--not that it was negative, which she has earned, but that it was relentlessly so. The POV fight (the parts of it they could show) needed to be seen. Don't have a problem with it. But the repeated making of the point, including THREE separate fight scenes with McCrae just seemed needless. And GinaMarie now has the biggest heart in all outdoors? No room for a little coverage of the mean girls waiting for Candice to reveal the clownietard, and how dearly they hoped that she would be humiliated by having to wear it? Or perhaps some juxtaposition of the kinda clueless, bumbling GM the HGs and CBS seem to embrace with the raging bitch GM, who makes ridiculous threats and mean girl posing in HOH with Arryan. Surprised not to see the GM impersonation contest. I'm fine with it not being included, believe me, but that's catnip to them that make the teepee show. Finally, it did seem that the punishments got less airtime than usual. Felt like a lot of trouble for the amount of footage they ended up using.
