So Amanda has a new best buddy and her name is Elissa. And when you have a new best buddy, you have to love and hate all the same people...because that's how high school works...
Elissa started early in the day by giving her wedding ring to Amanda as collateral for her vote. As soon as Amanda got the ring she pulled Andy into the storage room to let him know that all systems were go and that she was staying. Andy of course is NOT voting to keep Amanda, but still has to play along at this point in order to blame his vote against Amanda on Elissa. McCrae is already thinking that the plan may go bad and Elissa may not actually vote to keep Amanda, so he told Andy to blame his vote (the one to keep Amanda that he is not casting) on Elissa if the votes come back as a tie. Convenient, right?
Anyway, after the ring was exchanged, it was on to things like curling up in the hammock together and showering at the same time and making sure they have the same Enemies for Elissa and Amanda. They did not even try to be subtl, and it was noticed by everyone. Judd is now public enemy number one in their eyes with GinaMarie being target number two and Spencer number three..finally followed up by Andy who is in the final four with the two girls and McCrae. Lord help Judd who accidentally offended Elissa's crazy ass at least twice today. The best one being when he said that he didn't personally like it when super rich people brag and flaunt their charity contributions. Elissa then spent the rest of the night complaining to Amanda about how he is a disgusting and unsuccessful person because he is jealous and just hates successful people. I can't make this shit up. Elissa really just IS this freaking weird. I don't know where she was hatched, but wherever it was, they didn't really teach social skills so far as I can tell.
Throughout the night while Amanda and Elissa got more and more arrogant about Amanda staying and sending Spencer home...bragging things like "I can't WAIT to see the look on Judd and Spencer's faces when we blindside them".. The Exterminators did a lot of bragging of their own in the HOH as they started to count down the hours until time to evict Amanda and try to get Elissa out next. They too are looking forward to the shocked and blindsided faces. I can't say I'm not looking forward to it myself.
The hilarious thing about Elissa's insane behavior in the last 24 hours is that it is really only putting more of a target on her than before. Previously, Judd was planning on going after McCrae and trying to keep Elissa during the DE, and the other three didn't care all that much if it was She or McCrae that went next. Now, however, she is their number one target if they win. Elissa's only chance of staying in the house really is winning veto or HOH during the DE.
The Exterminators met several times to re-confirm their plans and for Andy to let them know what was going on and how committed he is to getting Amanda and Elissa out. They also of course took time to bitch about how obnoxious Amand and Elissa are together.
Judd also came out of the DR really annoyed at one point in the evening and wouldn't say exactly what happened, but implied that they were trying to push his vote again. I don't doubt it. Elissa has talked about how she takes what they hint to her in the DR very seriously because she respects the producers so much for putting her on the show and wants to do what they want. That's one of the reasons I think her new relationship with Amanda could have been tipped off by DR. That's just a theory though..not a fact. Judd however does not view the production interference the same way as Elissa does and has been pretty over the whole thing for several days now.
This whole Night Owl is really just a "something out of nothing" blog. Nothing really happened tonight that changed anything. It was all just a bunch of reiteration of last night's events and nothing has changed. Amanda is still leaving. Elissa is still the next target unless she wins HOH or veto, and Thursday can't come soon enough. I'm just ready for it all to happen. I'm personally super nervous about an Elissa HOH that takes out Judd on the 2nd eviction (AGAIN). So, I want to just rip the band-aid off and see what is going to happen. I realize tonight's re-cap was more opinion than happenings, but they didn't give me a lot of new material to work with, so I took the opportunity to rant a little. As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates. Until tomorrow night...
