Well, we can always count on Elissa to bring the crazy. I've said it before and I will say it again, there is NO working with Elissa because she flips on whims all the time and you never know when it's coming. I could explain to you all the ins and outs of Amanda's campaigning toda, but none of that really matters since it was all the same old "broken record" stuff and really didn't matter...much anyway. BUT, things DID get a little crazy tonight.
After Elissa had some wine she suddenly pulled Amanda into the cockpit and told her that she wants to keep her and be in an alliance with Amanda, McCrae, and Andy. Now of course, naturally, at first I thought Elissa was just pulling one last stunt to poke at Amanda, but it turns out....she is ACTUALLY serious. Andy came into the cockpit conversation and Elissa told him what she thought and how she wanted to work with the three of them and get out Judd and GinaMare and Spencer. The look on Andy's face was priceless!!
The good news is, whatever you think of Andy, he isn't a moron and he knows the deal. He knows you cannot work with Elissa and he knows he cannot go to the end with a couple like Amanda and McCrae. He waited things out as Elissa and Amanda talked in the rainbow room about how Elissa is on board 100% and Amanda is definitely staying, and McCrae sat outside where Judd and Spencer were. Once he had a chance to talk to Spencer and Judd alone outside, he immediately told them that Elissa is trying to flip the house on them, but there is no way in HELL he will vote to keep Amanda no matter what. They then set forward the plan that Andy will have to blame his screwy vote on Elissa so that McCrae still goes after Elissa in the double eviction rather than going after one of the Exterminators alliance members.
Amanda then talked to Andy and told him to feel it out and make sure it's real. She has her hopes back up and thinks she is probably staying. Andy went ahead and started planting seeds that if the vote didn't come ot the way it should, it would be because Elissa is nuts. Amanda told Andy that she told Elissa the only way she will believe her is if she gives her her wedding ring as collateral. I'm not sure if Elissa actually agreed to that or not. Andy then told Amanda he would continue to feel her out and see if he could figure out if she was serious or not.
Then it was time to fill in GinaMarie. While Judd kept Amanda and McCrae distracted in the bathroom downstairs, and they thought Andy was in the DR, he went upstairs and told GinaMarie (with Spencer) what was going on. GinaMarie agreed to break the tie and send Amanda packing no matter what happens. Spencer of course started getting nervous, but Andy assured him that there is no way that he or Judd will waver at all on their votes.
Andy then went back outside with Judd and Spencer to talk to them more about what was going on and how they were going to move forward with their alliance. The four of them are now pretty solidly focused on getting Elissa out instead of McCrae in the upcoming double if they can. Judd told Andy and Spencer about Elissa's weird flip when she was HOH from wanting Aaryn out to wanting to BD Amanda as soon as she left the DR, and he is convinced that the DR is talking to her again this week and trying to get her to flip the house. I personally wouldn't doubt it. Production does like to play with the storyline. Andy has told everyone in The Exterminators that no matter what the MUST act normal and pretend the don't know what is going on since if one of them tips off Amanda or Elisssa, they will know that he was the one that told and their alliance will be screwed during the DE if McCrae or Elissa get power. They all agreed to play dumb.
Everything is winding down now and The Exterminators are all still discussing how to handle the Elissa thing. If Elissa keeps on with her quest to keep Amanda, this coming DE will be even more interesting than we thought because Amanda will be blindsided when the vote comes to a tie. So there it is, a mostly boring night made interesting once again by alcohol. We shall see how this all plays out in the next 2 days before eviction. Whichever way it goes it should still be interesting. Oh, did I forget to mention that Spencer was put on the block as the replacement nom when McCrae came off? As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates. Until tomorrow night..
