The Night Owl

Most of the feed action today happened during the day.  Not a lot of game related events happened overnight. 

Early in the day Amanda went up as the MVP nomination.  This inspired the usual level of paranoia from her.  She went to pretty much everyone in the house and talked about still being convinced that Judd was the MVP and was the one that nominated her.  There were some arguments between she and McCrae about who would use the veto on her and who wouldn't.  Aaryn did not want her to come off the block because she felt she would go up (likely correct), but Amanda wanted the veto to be used on her even if GinaMarie won it.  Shortly after the tiffs, the veto started.

When the feeds came back from trivia we learned that Judd had technically won the competition, but it was the "White Elephant gift exchange" comp, so he decided to take $5k and let Jessie keep the veto she was already holding.  Apparently there were some major fireworks between Candice and Amanda during the veto competition after Candice told Judd that Amanda thinks and has been telling everyone that he is the MVP.  Judd quickly did some damage control with various people telling them that he was definitely not the MVP, and talks went on in the HOH of putting up Spencer as the replacement nom when Jessie pulls herself off.  Elissa made it clear she still wanted to vote Spencer out and keep Candice if that happened, so for a while there was talk of Elissa going up as the replacement.  Helen and Amanda quickly made sure that would not happen though, and now everyone is back to Spencer going up with Candice still being the target.

Along with the prizes (Judd's $5k and Spencer's trip to the Bahamas) there were plenty of punishments given out in this veto.

GinaMarie gets to wear a Cone Of Shame dog collar for 48 hours.

 

Candice will be wearing a clown suit for the rest of the week.

 

And Amanda won a "50 Shades Of Orange" mystic tan punishment that requires her to go be sprayed with orange tan each time the command comes over the speakers. 

 

After all punishments were given out, there was a lull for a while until an alcohol delivery tonight.  For a while the HGs have been planning the next 2 booze deliveries to be bachelor and bachelorette parties.  Tonight was the bachelor party.  None of the girls got to drink, which brought fits from both Elissa and Amanda, but the boys enjoyed themselves and drank several bottles of wine and a few beers each.   This prompted a lot of silliness.

Andy decided to learn how to smoke cigarettes.

 

And Judd continued to try to convince Amanda that he is not the MVP...with a good buzz going.

 

All of the girls except for Aaryn and Amanda played volley ball outside for a while, and the boys ran around pulling various pranks on people and just having a good time in general.

The only game talk I really saw occur came when Helen pulled Elissa into the storage room to talk about votes.  Helen told her she MUST vote out Candice even though she doesn't want to.  Elissa insisted that she would rather see Spencer or Amanda go.  She attempted to count up votes they could get with Helen, but Helen told her no, that it could not happen this week and Candice was going anyway.

 

I am doubting we will see a whole lot of game this week unless these people get smart enough to realize that booting Candice would be a waste of an HOH when they have a chance to get rid of a stronger social player, but I really don't think that will happen.  All I can hope for is a few more "keeping it real with Candy" sessions to spice things up a bit so that this week doesn't turn out completely dull.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

Big Brother Gossip Show #307: Monkey Business

It's been nothing but craziness for the past week, so we had lots to cover. In fact, it's by far our longest show to date. Not only do we talk about the results of the various competitions (HOH, POV, etc.), but we also discuss whether Howard did come on to Amanda, or whether Amanda said something questionable earlier today.

You can find this episode at the usual online spots, including iTunes, the Google store, or..

Special thanks to my cohosts, Mike and Colette, for their excellent contributions, and for Ash's great help with the audio clips!

We Do It For the Fans!

Although I try to be an equal-opportunity snark, human nature precludes that I'll set my spears on an individual or two. In the past, it's primarily been the vets that have in my mind ruined the game. This year, it was initially Elissa as I didn't think the MVP twist was fair to the rest of the house (plus I feel that family's fanbase is batshit crazy). As the season has progressed, others have popped in and out of my sarcastic radar.

At the end of the day, though, I really don't care who wins. I just want there to be a combination of interesting people at the end so I don't lose interest. Seriously, the idea of a Helen/Andy/Candice finale is a nightmare scenario. There has to be one "villain" to last to the end, even if they have no chance of actually winning. 

Many people, though, seem incapable of looking at this game in any other vision than the eyesight of their favorite player. Anybody that is against that person is evil incarnate, and that person's fan base should be ridiculed, condemned, or, in the case of twitter, sabotaged by reporting it to twitter as abusive.

It's bullshit, people. Enjoy which ever player you want, and dislike those you truly don't like, but don't lecture others that don't think like you. Why should it matter? It would be REALLY boring if we all thought the same.

What set me off today? It's an issue that's been festering for days, especially after the discovery that the family's of a good portion of the case are being harassed at all hours of the day and night. I'm not just talking about those that have used questionable language, either. Portions of the Big Brother community have turned into complete morons. There used to be an unspoken rule that families are to remain off limits, but apparently that's no longer the case.

Furthering my anger at the community is the reactions I'm reading to Amanda freaking out at being the MVP nomination. As her critics salivate at being able to spend their entire day over-tweeting about how much they hate her, they also are digging in to toss the same kind of verbal grenades at those who do like her.

So let me toss this out at you. This MVP thing is a mindfuck now that it's not a weekly Elissa event. They're all freaked out about the identity of the "person" making this pick. Yes, Amanda is over-the-top paranoid about the identity of who nominated her. Isn't that natural?

What would happen if the MVP had been Helen? She'd be crying to some people, and interogating others. Or both. If it had been Candice, there's be another episode of her silly fake show where she'd attempt to call everybody out. Eliisa would run to the diary room to get answers from her buddies. 

The point is that any of them would be acting out in some way. None of them would look calm or gracious. I'm not saying that you can't criticize or poke fun at their reactions. But to say that person's fans are "delusional" for simply being disappointed or raising questions on how this happened is ridiculous.

MVP Nomination and POV

The MVP nomination was made this morning and once again it is Amanda that was put up by America.

Her initial reaction seemed calm however once the POV is played & if she doesn't win it - we may see he get upset once again.

Besides Amanda, Candice, Jesse and HoH GinaMarie playing for the POV, Spencer and Judd will be playing as well.

Check out the feeds and see for yourself what the HGs are thinking - links to sign up are all over the site or you can sign up by clicking here.

Our weekly Big Brother Podcast will be on tonight at 10pm Eastern.  We should know who the POV winner is at that time.  If we find out earlier one of use will update this post or make a new one!!

The Night Owl

Well folks, I'm calling it an early night because there is literally nothing to write about tonight. I guess the HGs used up all they had to make last night explosive. 

Tonight most of the HGs were told they would be woken up at 7am for the MVP nomination and veto, so after a short "who can impersonate GinaMarie" the best competition (McCrae won but gave his BBQ invite to Jessie in exchange for the HOH room for he and Amanda), most of them went to bed.  Spencer, McCrae, Amanda, and Aaryn stayed up for a while.  McCrae and Amanda had a small fight about Jessie sitting close to McCrae during the competition.  They all speculated a while about who the MVP is.  Spencer and McCrae think it's America, but Amanda says there is no way America would have put her up so it HAS to be someone in the house.  She also implied that she still thinks it is Judd by saying "I think it's the person who reacted differently than everyone else to the Howard thing.  Outside of that, nothing at all has happened and most of the lingerers are headed to bed now too. Hopefully the MVP nomination will shake things up this morning. Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Surprise! Your new HOH is the cinnamon eating, FroYo guzzling, not able to digest water, GinaMarie.

 

 

So what happens when you keep evicting all the boys and then you add alcohol?  A really interesting fight night!

When GinaMarie first came back into the house after winning her HOH, she and Aaryn immediately started talking about who the nominations would be and it was between Candice and either Spencer or Jessie with Candice being the target.  We all knew that though.  In the other room, Amanda and McCrae started to talk about how they wanted to get Aaryn to get in GinaMarie's ear to try and go through with their backdoor Judd plan, but both agreed that they may not be able to push their agenda this week and might just have to lose Candice or Spencer.

 

 

Everybody did the go see GinaMarie's HOH room thing.  Spencer talked through his bullhorn (he got a punishment that requires him to only talk through it  until after noms).  GinaMarie got her desired picture of Nick as part of her HOH, Helen debated on who to take to her BBQ party she won by falling early in the HOH comp, and the have-nots got to eat.

Shortly after the have-nots started eating, alcohol arrived.  Candice, Amanda, Elissa, and Helen were all drinking wine of course.  Right after the drinking began, Jessie joined Amanda, McCrae, Andy, and Judd in the cockpit. She started crying because she did not understand why Helen had invited Aaryn to her BBQ party instead of Jessie.  She started getting really snappy with Andy who later said he felt like it was another "it's the ultimate disrespect to sit on a Texan's hat" moments.   Judd tried to calm her down and asked her if there was anything he could do for her.  She snapped at  him with "Maybe if I could take pills I would be happy TOO!" (talking about the meds he takes for anxiety).  She then exited the cockpit saying "I don't even want to be int his house anymore!".

While my brain was still trying to figure out what crazy train Jessie was riding, all of the sudden a fight erupted in the kitchen and Amanda and Candice started screaming at each other about Howard leaving.  Amanda was yelling about her being sad about it and telling her why he had to go, THEN she yelled out what Howard supposedly said to her in the kitchen (which cut to fish of course).  When the feeds returned from fish, they went several more rounds about Howard and alliances etc...   Amanda yelled at Candice about trying to flip the house and told her that she made Judd look shady and Jessie look shady etc.. etc..  Candice snapped back with a lot of replies and also implied that Jessie was the one that came to THEM with the idea to flip the house. Not the other way around.  After the fight had gone on for a while, Helen of course felt the need to jump in with her two cents also.  When the yelling was finally over, Amanda, Helen, and Elissa marched up to the HOH room while Judd and Andy stayed in the kitchen to comfort Candice.

 

 

While Andy and Judd comforted Candice, a hen fest of bitching started up in the HOH room with Amanda, Helen, Elissa, GinaMarie, McCrae, and Aaryn.  They were all re-telling the stories at once and basically sealing the deal to put up Candice and Jessie tomorrow for nominations.

 

 

This HOH bash session went on for quite a while, and then it SEEMED like things were calming down a little when Helen and Elissa went down to the kitchen to drunkenly talk to Candice about how bad they felt evicting Howard and how they are not all working together etc..

Then the feeds went to fish for a while for BB to re-open the backyard.  When the feeds came back, Amanda and Jessie were screaming at each other, and it was dirty!!  Jessie accused Amanda of being a bully, Amanda called Jessie a slut and told her to close her legs as well as accusing her of being after McCrae.  Jessie told Amanda she wasn't the one sitting outside in her freaking underwear all the time.

Then the feeds cut to fish again. Only audio was coming through on a lot of the fights, so unfortunately I don't have many screen caps to show you.  When the feeds returned, instead of being on the backyard fight with Jessie and Amanda, they were on the bedroom where Candice was again sobbing about what Amanda told Candice Howard had said to her.

Then feeds cut again for probably 20 minutes.  When they came back all 4 feeds were on the HOH with GinaMarie and Helen talking about the fact that Jessie and Amanda were still apparently screaming at each other in the back yard, but no one wants to be out there.  I WANT TO SEE IT!!

The fight between Jessie and Amanda has been going on for over 30 minutes now but ou only hear glimpses now and then when someone opens the door to the BY because for SOME reason they will not show the BY and instead keep cutting to fish or all 4 feeds on Helen eating in the HOH room etc..   I am giving up out of frustration. The last thing I heard was about 10 minutes ago when Amanda yelled "You are acting like a psychopath!" to Jessie.

I know one thing.  Guess who is sitting pretty again compared to this past week?  This guy:

 

 

Spencer is situated pretty good now as well.  The crazy known as Candice and Jessie are sinking themselves, and Amanda seems to be on a mission to take herself down with them.

If the feeds turn to what is actually happening and I get to see anything more, I will post a follow-up, but for now I'm going to give up and just post what I have.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.   I expect to see Jessie and Candice nominated sometime this morning.  Until tomorrow night...

GinaMarie - your new HoH

You may want earplugs this week.  Candice is who she wants out.

Spencer, Helen and Candice were the first three off. Candice won the $5,000 - Helen won a BBq for herself and 3 others - Spencer has to use a megaphone for the next 24 hours.

Thats all I got for now.

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 16 Recap

It’s an important night in the Big Brother house. The actual eviction may be nothing special, as it’s pretty clear it is going to be Howard, but the show is rumored to conclude with an endurance competition. This week’s winner should set the tone for what happens throughout the start of the second half of the season.

Before we begin, though, it should be noted that we had some weirdness on the feeds today. In previous weeks the feeds have been live through most of the day. In fact, quite often they’ve gone up to fifteen minutes before showtime before taking them down.

Not today, though. They woke everybody earlier than normal, and then Big Brother made an announcement while they were preparing for the day. Shortly after, the feeds went to trivia, and we haven’t seen them the rest of the day. What gives? Nobody knows, but there’s been lots of rumors floating around.

So let’s get going with the reaction to Spencer taking himself off the block, with Aaryn replacing him with Candice. Spencer is still bummed that Howard is up. “I’ve got to save him and make sure that Amanda runs out that door on Thursday.” Do you think Candice is happy about this? Of course not. She’s pissed the “redneck girl” put her up. Amanda, though, doesn’t feel so bad being up because Howard is still on the block. Howard, meanwhile, is hoping somebody “has the guts” to save both him and Candice.

Howard is now shown on the elliptical telling Candice neither of them are going home. Candice replies, “grab your rebel flag. Black people on the block.” She continues on saying that Aaryn is scary, but he’s adamant neither are going home.

We jump to Spencer talking about getting five votes to get Amanda out. He talks to GinaMarie for a bit, and they both want to “keep that dude”. GinaMarie seems open to voting out Amanda. He then moves on, along with Howard, to Judd and Andy. Their message is that people don’t have to obey the plans of “certain people”. Andy says it all “makes total sense”. Spencer also talks to Candice, saying he wants to be on her side to take out Amanda.

Andy runs to Amanda to tell her about Spencer’s plan. “Of course it’s not going to happen, but they think they have me and Judd.” Amanda is paranoid, and is worried that Andy was MVP. They hug, and she walks out of the storage room.

We’re now outside, and Spencer sits down next to Amanda. They make some small talk, before Amanda says “I know what you’re doing, but it’s not going to work”. Spencer denies that he’s working against her, but Amanda presses him. Spencer claims that his wish is to get rid of Candice, but he’s “not about to kiss her ass”. Amanda says she’s confident that she has the votes to stay, and if he stops the plan that maybe he won’t be the “main target”.

He goes on to complain about how she pushes her weight around, but “I’m not some punk bitch that’s going to kiss your ass”. Finally, he tells her to shut up, and she calls him to quit bullying her. “Who tells a woman to shut up?”

Helen, who was working out, goes inside and reports on the whole story to Candice. “Anything I can do to hurt Spencer’s game, I’m going to do”, Helen explains in the diary room. “Maybe I’ll have a ‘keep it real with Candy’ moment”. She’s pissed that Spencer has promised her to keep her safe this week, so she wants to “put the bullseye smack dab on (his) forehead”.

She goes outside and announces a meeting, leading Amanda to say “house meeting always go really well”. Candice then lays into Spencer, who says that he only said “my personal preference is for Howard to stay”. She responds that she heard that Spencer had said he wanted Amanda to “choke on her saliva”, which he also denies. “Stop being a liar.” She ends it by saying that she hopes that “everybody uses their own mind” when they vote, and that Spencer needs to keep his name out of his mouth.

Jessie is now inside whining to Aaryn and GinaMarie on how Candice is treating her. For some reason, she is afraid of her “fierce social game”. Say what? “That’s scary to me.” Aaryn replies that maybe Candice should be the real target, and GinaMarie agrees. All they need is four votes, after all, and Aaryn is certainly willing. Too bad it won’t do anything but create a false hope for CBS-only viewers.

It’s now time for Julie to talk to the house. She congratulates them for making it to almost the halfway mark, and then informs them of Britney’s baby. Oh yeah, and the stupid Kardashian baby. Ugh, who cares. Baby news over, and Julie asks what Jessie misses from home. It’s her dog. God, this is a waste of time. Judd is asked the same question, and he misses his family, friends, and dog.

Speaking of Judd, it’s now time to meet his family. They’re exactly as you’d expect. Good for them, but I see way too many of those types of folks in my area.

It’s now time for the final pleas. Amanda goes up first, and she says hi to her family and then says “I’m not ready to go home next”. She is grateful for McCrae, and thanks GinaMarie for calming her down. She’s hoping for a Jewish wedding in the house.

Candice then says hi to “both my moms out there”, and babbles and babbles and babbles. “Vote with your heart. Howie, you’re my best friend in the house, and we’re both on the block because of it.”

Howard is last, and he thanks God before thanking his family and his church. He says he loves his castmates, and can’t wait to be friends outside of the house. He wants to people to vote with their heart, not because of what they’ve been told to do.

Voting then starts with Helen, who votes to evict Howard, as does Elissa. Spencer votes to evict his “besty boo” Candice. McCrae goes back to the house choice, and votes against Howard, as does Andy, Judd, GinaMarie, and Jessie. Howard is out, 7-1!

After commercials, Julie announces the news. He hugs everybody, saving Candice for last. She gives him a peck, and is out the door. Everybody gathers to watch his name go dark (why, I  don’t get as I have never understood this ritual). Julie asks why he was seen as a threat, and he goes on about the “power in the house”. Julie wants to know who the power belongs to, and he says Helen, Amanda, and McCrae. He adds that he tried to get in with them, but the Moving Company lie screwed his game. Julie pushes on the Movers and his lie to Helen. Who cares, really?

Julie then brings up the racism in the house. Howard says that outside of the house, “it’s easy to walk away from it”. When you’re in the house, you can’t walk away but he was thankful that Candice was there. He didn’t confront it because he was afraid of his temper, and he gets applause for that answer.

For final goodbyes, Spencer says he’s upset that he’s gone. Amanda bitches that getting him out has been “exhausting”. Helen kisses ass, as she always does. She sucks. Speaking of suck, we get Candice’s baby talk to end the segment. Goodbye, Howard, you were a good guy on the wrong season. Oh wait, we’re not done. Julie asks about Candice’s comments about being “friends”, and that leads Howard to go on and on.

It’s now HOH comp time...and it is indeed endurance. It’s called “Bull in the China Shop”. They’re on a barrel, holding a “bull” as long as possible. When they drop off, their china shatters. Last person standing is the new HOH.

Cue the ultra-cheesy music, and we’re off. Elissa almost falls right away,, but saves herself. She’s not doing well on this comp. Others are acting like this is the easiest game ever, and cheer when Julie announces there are no Have-Nots this week. Before we end the show, Julie announces that the first three to drop will get to open a box...and one of them contains five grand. Nobody falls for it...yet.

So after the announcement that next week is a double eviction evening, that’s it for this week. Jump on the feeds to find out who is the next HOH!

What did you think? Did the right person go? Should Candice or Amanda have gone? Who do you think will win HOH? Let us know!

Eviction Night and Possible Endurance HoH Competition

Just a quickie post - feeds have been on trivia for hours - some of us are getting paranoid that Big Brother is getting their hands dirty messing with the HGs.  Howard is/way a lock to go home as of this morning - if he doesn't it will be because Big Brother got involved in some way.  We shall see.

No matter who leaves tonight, we are expecting another Endurance competition - only because the HGs went on lockdown early ealrly Wednesday morning.  No need if it were just a simple quiz competition.

Stay tuned - we will be about to update you when we know more after the show,  and if you haven't signed up for a free trial of the live feeds - WHY NOT?  2 day free trial - click on a banner and get signed up and watch the feeds with us!
