Big Brother Season 15, Episode 19 Recap

It’s one of the highlights of the Big Brother season. A night when a whole week of the season (more, actually) is crowded into one hour of craziness. It’s a night that has seen fan faves and season powerhouses suddenly leave the house. It’s a night that generally sets the pace for the last few weeks of the show.

Of course, I’m talking about double eviction night. Adding to the usual madness of this extravaganza, CBS announced earlier this week that everybody still in the house has made jury. A tweet from Julie Chen added even more intrigue. The “reset” button was in the tweeted picture, which has made everybody believe that the MVP twist is now over (thank God).

Here we go with the usual Thursday opening of the reactions to Jessie taking herself off the block with the POV. Spencer isn’t too worried, but he knows he “can’t do anything to change anybody’s minds”. Candice, though, has a bit of new life, as she’s heard about Amanda’s various “schemes”. Amanda again whines about the “anonymous MVP”, and says she has to “play nice Amanda”.

Amanda and Jessie are now shown still babbling about their fight from earlier this week (as shown on last night’s episode). Amanda’s complaint is that she thought they were friends, and she apologizes. Jessie says she doesn’t believe her.

Now Amanda and McCrae are sitting in the cockpit with Andy and Judd, and Amanda remarks that they haven’t met up in a while. Yes, her paranoia has not gone away, and Andy isn’t too happy about this. We see a repeat of their final four deal, and then Judd says that he doesn’t want to see any more outbursts from Amanda. This doesn’t make her happy, especially as she thinks he is MVP.

Candice is now shown complaining to Elissa about being the target. Jessie walks in, and Candice says, “I don’t get how I became a bigger threat than McCrae and Amanda.” Jessie agrees, and later starts to work on Helen. She tells Helen that “Amanda is so influential”, and that if they don’t do it this week, Amanda will go after her next week. Helen isn’t convinced.

Now Jessie attempts to work on Judd, saying if Candice goes this week that will mean Jessie goes next week. Judd says he thought she squashed her beef with Amanda, but Jessie says he should come in with her and the other girls. Judd is also not completely convinced, and ends up giving her a couple of kisses. Does that mean they’re engaged.

Wait, maybe it did work, as Helen meets up with Andy and complains that Amanda and McCrae are “too comfortable”. She claims that she is about huge moves, but can’t do it without Andy. Andy shakes his head, and says they have yet to do anything to make him reconsider his trust. “It’s like chess, and it’s way too early.”

Now Helen is outside with Candice, telling her that “part of the deal is making deals”. When she says that Candice is not her first choice to go home, Candice responds that it’s insane to let Amanda stay in the house. “Why don’t you tell this spiel to anybody else in the house?” Jessie says it’s because nobody can make this kind of move without Helen. Here response is that she has tried to help Candice to no avail, and that Amanda has “not done me any wrong”. She’s ready to do it “when the house is ready”.

It’s time to announce the big news to the house, and she starts with the news of the expanded nine-person jury. “That is the good news”, says Julie. The bad news is that tonight is double eviction night, and that “just because you’re on the jury doesn’t mean you’re out of the game”. Say what?

Final plea time, starting with Candice. She complains about GinaMarie’s personal attack, and we can hear GinaMarie respond. Oh boy, this is funny. Julie attempts to stop them, to no avail. They’re still screaming as Spencer gets up for his final plea. He tries to be funny, but who can hear them? Amanda then thanks her family, and that she loves everybody in the house. “I want to stay here badly.”

Voting now starts with McCrae, who votes to evict Candice, as does Aaryn, Helen, Jessie, a frowning Elissa, Andy, and Judd. It’s unanimous. Candice is out the door!

Julie announces the decision, and she hugs almost everybody. Well, except GinaMarie, who continues to shout at her about her mother not wanting her as she walks out. We hear Candice apologize to Julie as we watch them stare at the wall of pictures. Julie asks about what happened, and Candice complains about the personal attacks. “I’m a lovely person, inside and out”, she complains. The fight with Amanda is up next, and Candice says that Amanda has a lot of protection around her.

Julie then brings up the racism angle, and Howard’s plea to ignore it. Candice says she’s a “person who defends myself”, and she said that she “stayed true to myself” while still listening to Howard’s advice. There’s no goodbye messages this week, and we head right to commercials.

Commercial break over, it’s time for the HOH competition. It’s a question contest called “Summer School”, and it’s about items and events in the house. The answers are “more” or “less”, and wrong answers get you out of the game.

The first question is about airplane seats, and Elissa is already out! The second question is about the popsicle factory competition, and Andy and Jessie are now out. For question three, Julie asks about the number of black fireballs, and everybody is correct. Next is about the veto election competition, and Aaryn is the only person to get it right. She’s the new HOH! And doesn’t seem to be too happy about it!

We head to more commercials, and when we return Aaryn has to immediately state her choices for nominations. She’s seen talking to Andy, McCrae, and Spencer, who volunteers to go up. Aaryn tells them all they need to fight hard for veto. Amanda and McCrae walk out, and Andy asks her what she wants to do. She doesn’t want to make waves, and Andy doesn’t want Spencer to go home.

Julie then announces that it’s time for the nomination ceremony, and everybody heads back into the living room. Before we get to her nominations, Julie announces that there will no longer be the MVP twist. Amanda yells the loudest in response. Now Aaryn gets to make her nominations, and puts up Jessie and Spencer.

More commercials before the POV competition, which will also include Andy, Judd, and Amanda. It’s called “Nailed It”, and they have to race to their toolbox to get different colored nails for their veto puzzle. If you do the puzzle incorrectly, you’re out of the contest. Just a minute or two into the contest, Aaryn has already won! Wow, I wasn’t expecting that at all!

Yet another commercial break before Aaryn has to decide to make a replacement nominee. We see Jessie hugging various people, and then the Amanda clique are talking. Meanwhile, Helen is giving Aaryn some “advice”, and telling her that she is amazing. Julie then calls everybody back into the living room, and Aaryn then she takes Jessie down and puts up Judd for “playing her”. Apparently, all but two people want this, and “I’ll be going home if I don’t do this.” What the fuck just happened???

Holy crap, there are more commercials before we get to the second eviction of the evening. The final pleas begin with lots of bleeps before Spencer stands up. He hopes that anybody has any plans for him in the long term. Judd stands up and says he loves everybody, and doesn’t understand why he’s been put up. “Don’t vote how people are telling you. Vote how you want to.” He then points to various people to change their vote, and says that not everything is true.

Amanda starts the process by voting to evict Judd, as does McCrae, GinaMarie, Andy, Helen, Elissa, and Jessie. Yes, it’s again unanimous.

The news is given to an angry Judd, who sprints to grab his hat before hugging the house. For some reason, Elissa whines, “this has nothing to do with me”, as he sprints out the door. Half the house is crying as we await the interview, and Helen calls Aaryn “Janelle”. Wait, what?

Julie asks Judd what just happened, and I honestly can’t understand what he said. He doesn’t know what Aaryn was referring to, and says that maybe he shouldn’t have trusted Amanda and McCrae. He does say that he was loyal to them, though. That’s it, though, as the time is up.

I need some time to process what just happened. I don’t really care that Judd went home. I liked him, but he had been acting even stranger than usual in recent days. What do you think? Was this a big move? Who should Aaryn have gone after? Why is Elissa making this about herself? Tell us what you think about tonight’s show!

When Judd was evicted, Elissa tried to hug him & he told her he didn't want a hug from her. He also said the same to Helen. I believe that is why Elissa said that it didn't have anything to do with her. :)

I'm so irritated! These players are so afraid of making a move. They are all already in jury, and the powers that be have made it clear the war starts at jury. I just hope Helen or Amanda makes a move against the other, and soon. That is the only thing that could spice things up.

Even though she's one of the most hated players, Amanda is really the only person who deserves to win this game. Everyone else in the house is a floater, and she's used her manipulative power to get those out who she can't control (Candice, Howie, Nick, etc.). All it takes is someone to stand up to her, and the only person left is ... Jessie. If she wins HOH, she'll put her up for sure.

I kinda liked Judd but he got what he deserved in the end. Jesse and Candice tried to warn him about Amanda for the past week but he refused to listen. I wonder how loyal he'll feel when he finally finds out that his "Goof Troupe" were the ones who stabbed him in the back and put him out of the house. This season sucks royally because everyone one of the HGs are nothing but sheep following Amanda's orders and will be picked off one by one until the end. I am so tired of hearing I'm doing this for my game by all these people when all they are doing is handing the game to Amanda The Wicked Witch of the South!

Please pardon my rant, I'm just pissed that the people are ruining one of my favorite shows.

What ultimately killed Judd was a fight he had with Jessie this afternoon. We'll be covering it Saturday on the Big Brother Gossip Show!
August 8, 2013 | Registered CommenterScott
Guessing Amanda will win, because Helen, for all her talk is just that, and everyone is too timid or scared or stupid to cross Amanda. Helen has likely missed her chance to push Amanda out. Expect her to be evicted very soon. Don't care which one gets the money this year, wishing jury could pick none of the above.

Oh No! Not J U DD! he was so much fun on the feeds! I thought for sure Jessie was going when Aaryn won both HOH and POV way to go girl. How many wins now? 3 HOH's and how many POV's? The girl came to play!

Wow. Some salty comments going on. Sad to see Judd go. Should've been Jessie. I like to see BB fans play BB and it looks like there's only one left. I was already on team McRae anyway but there are a few people I would've like to see go out before Judd.
August 8, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterbadisdizzie
Wow what an episode..i knew going into tonight that either Judd or Jessie were gone if either did not win Hoh tonight and it totally slipped my mind when the time came for Aaryn to name a replacement. but it was still a shock!!...I just want to say that Amanda deserves to win this game if she makes it to the end.
August 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterEvander
I think it's a huge stretch to say Elissa is making this all about her.
August 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMe
Am sorry that this years BB has so predictable. Too bad that the house guests have allowed Amanda to take over the house No matter who is HOH, she seems to have the last word. Where have all the heros gone? Or were there any to begin with.

HOW WAS CANDICE COMPLAINING ABOUT PERSONAL ATTACKS.. SHE WAS ASKED ABOUT THE RACIAL REMARKS AND SHE TOLD JULIE WHY... I DONT SEE HOW THATS COMPLAINING... SOUNDS KINDA BIAS TO ME BE OF COURSE YOU ALWAYS ARE
August 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLEE
I ACTUALLY THINK HELEN IS IN CONTROL OF THE HOUSE AND IF HER SIDE WINS HOH TONIGHT, ANOTHER MALE WILL EXIT THE HOUSE.... ITS ACTUALLY GOOD TO SEE THE GURLS IN CONTROL AND NOT BEING USED TIL THE END FOR A CHANGE... AMANDA AINT RUNNING NOTHING, SHES A TARGET WAITIN TO HAPPEN UNLESS EVERYBODY FIGURES OUT THAT THEY COULD WIN THE WHOLE THING BY TAKING HER TO THE END BECAUSE NO ONE WOULD GIVE HER THE MONEY
August 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLEE
I'm trying to figure out why Helen called Aaryn, "Janelle."
August 9, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDave
The word complaint is a descriptive. It doesn't mean she was not justified. Calm down, Lee.
August 9, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterScott
Can't believe the comment GM made as Candice walked out the door...so hateful, and shows what a dirtbag she is. I am not too interested in watching the rest of this season, considering what is happening in this house....such a sad commentary on humanity these days.
August 9, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterQuincy
In the last 10 seconds of Thursday's episode, Helen tells (re-affirms to?) Aaryn that they're going after Spencer next. Not too much of a surprise, I suppose.
August 9, 2013 | Unregistered Commentercharlie
It's actually Jessie they're targeting, though.
