Big Brother Season 15, Episode 28 Recap

This is it. It’s a night a good percentage of the Big Brother community is waiting for. A cute (former) model is about to walk out the door, not knowing that she’s been face of Aryan culture for the past two months.

Unfortunately for the blood thirsty, it’s unlikely she’ll actually get her true comeuppance tonight. She is headed to the jury house, after all, so Julie Chen can’t mention anything that’s happening in the “real world”. Will bad behavior be discussed? Certainly, but not at the level that would have happened a few weeks ago before the ousted headed to jury. You’re just going to have to wait for the finale to see how CBS handles her...and others.

Before we get to that moment, though, we have a replacement nominee to discuss. Amanda, the veto winner, took down her man, and Elissa put up Andy as his replacement. Elissa explains that she really wanted Amanda out this week, but she had to put up Andy because she knows he’s been working with her. Aaryn adds that this makes it the end of the “3 A.M.” alliance, and she has a bad feeling that she will be the one going home “because Andy has deals with almost everyone here”. Andy admits that he’s “freaking out”, and he really needs Amanda and McCrae’s votes. He adds that it is also the “beginning of a new plan that I have for myself that does not involve Amanda and McCrae”.

Elissa is now shown in the kitchen, and you can hear a New Year’s Eve party buzzer thing (what are they called?). “I’m back”, yells Amanda. “Hey Elissa. How are you, angel?” Elissa ignores her as Amanda continues to hover over her. “I’m very threatening and scary.” She asks her why she doesn’t look like any of her pictures. “How many doctors did it take to make your face look like that?” Elissa giggles and walks away. “I’m not about to be manipulated by a girl like her”, she says in the diary room. Amanda continues to talk as Elissa heads into the HOH.

Amanda is now seen in bed, asking the other boys why everybody is being nice to her. “I’m the only one standing up to this bitch, and everybody else is hiding in my shadow being, nice and kissing her dumbassed, cologenic injected face.” Spencer tells her to chill out, and Amanda continues to yell about her. “I want to punch her in her fucking face.” Andy complains in the diary room that she’s acting “appalling”. He says he’s not going to talk game with anybody, and Amanda says her next target is anybody seen chatting to her.

Time for a bitch session. GinaMarie is flapping her gums about Amanda to Judd, Spencer, and Andy, but I can never understand what she’s saying. Spencer calls her “repulsive”, and wants things to change. They just can’t have the two of them at the end, so Andy says they should just “cut ties” and go for their individual games. Judd says they should call themselves “The Exterminators”, and of course GinaMare loves that!

Aaryn is now talking to Amanda, who says she did everything she could to get GinaMarie up instead of Andy. She explains that Andy was with them long before Aaryn, so that’s where their loyalty lies. In the diary room, she explains that she also trusts Andy more than Aaryn because she chose Judd in that last veto comp. If she only knew what Andy was plotting. Aaryn whines a bit about how much work she’s done for nothing. “I did (the work) for people who won’t even keep me safe.” Amanda then starts crying, and then crawls into her bed to cry. “You still have two more days. You never know what’s going to happen.” The only way Aaryn can stay is to get the votes of Spencer, GinaMarie, and Judd. “This is going to be hard.” Impossible, actually.

She attempts to work it anyway, and first goes to GinaMarie, who promises her a vote. In the diary room, GinaMarie says she has to make fake alliances with both nominees. Aaryn then tries to work on Judd and Spencer, who says he has “concerns about your loyalties”. He adds that her past HOH’s furthered other’s needs, but she counters that she only did that to survive. Spencer and Judd both say they have to think about it, so Aaryn says she needs to start throwing some people under the bus.

Aaryn then tries to work on Amanda and McCrae again, pointing out that she’s done so much more work than he has. She points out that they have the two biggest targets on their backs, and that everybody is going after them. When she mentions Spencer’s name, Amanda gets a bit upset. She calls him over to the couch, and asks him if that’s true. “She’s full of shit”, he replies. Aaryn tries to refute him, but it goes nowhere. “Nobody trusts anything you say”, he tells Aaryn, before wandering back over to the hammock to report to Andy. Aaryn continues to fight for her side, and Amanda asks if she’d take them to the final three. So now we get that footage that makes the upcoming eviction vote appear to not be a slam dunk.

Ugh, a Dan segment is next??? NOOOOOOOO! I’m not recapping anything what that asshole has to say.

And now we have more bullshit with Brendon, Rachel, Jeff, Jordan, Dom and Danielle???? Nope, not watching that idiocy either.

After that silliness, Julie talks to the house. She welcomes Judd back to the game, and asks him how things have changed since his return. He babbles about how it’s the same people, but a couple are gone, so “they really did me a favor while I was gone”. Ok then. Amanda is then congratulated for her first victory, and is asked about “verbally taunting Elissa”. She replies that “Elissa really pushed my buttons”, but she has since apologized. “Now the house guests knwo not to push my buttons.” That’s not going to get a good response in the online world. Elissa is asked to respond, and she complains that Amanda took it past “game-related things”. That’s about all I understood from her lengthy non-answer.

Julie then wastes some more time talking about how twitter is so obsessed with the dirtiness of the bedroom. A picture is shown, and Spencer is asked why it’s so dirty. It’s a dumb question, so I’m not going to bother to state his reply. Oh wait, this is funny. “Thank you for asking me a question, by the way. It’s only been about ten weeks.”

It’s now crunch time. Aaryn gets the first final speech, and she tells everybody at home how much she misses them. She babble some more, and says she respects their decision. Andy then quotes Abraham Lincoln, but his joke falls flat. Even his Anderson Cooper quip stinks.

Voting then begins with Judd, who votes to evict his “little Texas tornado”. Spencer also votes against Aaryn, as does a crying GinaMarie, Amanda, and McCrae. Aaryn is out by a unanimous vote!

We have to endure more commercials for the much-anticipated meeting between Julie and Aaryn. It’s a peaceful departure, as she hugs everybody (including lengthy ones with Elissa and GinaMarie), and actually gets some cheers as she comes out. Oh yeah, and a few catcalls.

Wow, we don’t get the usual stupid footage of the house staring at the picture wall. Julie announces they have a lot to talk about, and she is then asked about the unanimous vote. Aaryn says that she believes Amanda and McCrae kept Andy over her because of her competition success. But why not GinaMarie, and Aaryn explains that the unanimous votes are so that they don’t become targets. Ugh.

Julie then brings up Elissa and their rocky relationship. Aaryn says that at first they were friendly, but the lie about not being Rachel’s sister brought on some animosity.

Ok, here we go. “In the early days of this game, you said some pretty harsh things about your fellow housemates.” Julie adds that Amanda even attempted to let her know that some of the things she said were being interpreted as racist. It’s not a good answer. Aaryn complains that since she’s southern, things have been taken out of context. “I do not mean to ever come off as racist. That’s not me, and I apologize to anyone that I’ve offended for that.” (Note, you can hear people in the audience laughing at that dumb response.)

Julie then reminds her that everybody going into the house knows that they’re on the internet, and proceeds to read some of the things she stated. Oh yeah, this isn’t going to end well. As the audience laughs, she says she doesn’t remember saying any of those things.”That was not meant to be serious, and I feel horrible for that. I regret that.” Julie follows that up by asking if the experience has taught her anything. Clearly flustered, Aaryn just spits out a few words about how her and Andy, Candice, and Helen are “great friends”.

The segment ends with the usual goodbye messages. Judd says that he thinks that she is “awesome”, but that “I feel that you are playing for Amanda and McCrae to win this”. Amanda says that this is the toughest eviction for her, and she loves her like a sister. Elissa then says she has “nothing to say to you except have fun in the jury house. Or don’t.” Interesting, as just a few minutes ago Elissa acted like she was her best friend. GinaMarie ends it by saying that she loves her. “You’ll always be my BB bunny.”

Julie asks for her final thoughts, and it’s clear the past few minutes are the only thing she is thinking about. She says she feels awful, and that in Texas they joke about things without really meaning it. “I really feel bad that this is how it’s being seen, and how I’ve come across to people.” Julie then tells her that after she’s home and watches the footage, “you’ll have a whole new perspective on things”.

It’s now time for the next HOH competition, and they’re wearing bunny ears. It’s called “Big Hopportunity”, and they have to maneuver balls through a maze. The first to collect a dozen “eggs” in their basket is the new HOH. Their feet are tied together, so they have to hop around the playing field. After they begin, Julie announces that the last place finisher will have to wear a chicken suit for 48 hours.

Before we end, Julie announces that on Sunday there will be a “surprise competition”, and that next Thursday will be another double eviction. That should be fun!

Well, that’s it. We leave the show without a new HOH. Who do you think will win? Who do you want to win? What did you think of the interview with Aaryn? Or the return of certain people I will never mention again? Let us know!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 25 Recap

It’s been hyped and hyped all week long. Big Brother alum have even been prodded to live tweet the event like it’s the Super Bowl. It’s a “first”, y’all, so aren’t you excited?

Meh. Just because it’s never happened before doesn’t make it a groundbreaking event. Plus, those idiots up north did the exact same thing earlier this year.

What am I talking about? The super-duper special competition that will allow jury members (plus tonight’s evictee) compete to return to the game. Excuse me while I yawn. Sorry, but I’m a purist. Once you’re gone, you’re gone. There’s no do-overs. Why should a week of work in the house be wasted (or in the case of Judd, a few minutes of work). It seems to me that the only people that love this twist are those with emotional attachments to one of the individuals who could come back, or whose hatred of somebody remaining is borderline scary. In other words, the vast majority of this year’s fans.

Let’s get it over with. After Julie hyping the history-making event, we have to go through a lengthy recap before the reactions to Spencer replacing Elissa on the block. Spencer says he’s not really surprised, and “isn’t really sweating it”. Funny, as he looks like he is CONSTANTLY sweating. Aaryn doesn’t make much sense in her diary room comment. She wanted to put up Amanda, but ultimately has to “appease” her. Wait, what?

Aaryn heads upstairs as Elissa and Helen hug. Helen says that she’s now “starting to regret not taking Jessie seriously about getting Amanda out of the game sooner, but it’s clear by Aaryn’s speech that she’s being bullied by Amanda”. Sensing an opportunity, the two of them head upstairs. In tears, Helen demands that Elissa start working with Aaryn and GinaMarie. Oh boy. Elissa says that “100% we have to work together”. Hmmm, interesting since she spent a full day bitching about Aaryn just two days ago.

Andy then pops in, and it gets awkward. Helen says that he is the swing vote, and Andy snaps that she has him 100%. “If I don’t stay, it’s going to be because of your vote”. She is hoping that her emotional state will get into his heart. “America is rooting for us right now (ugh).” He just can’t let the bullies win! This pisses off Andy, as Helen has done as much bad things as anybody else. Out of the blue, Aaryn then complains that this conversation will end up hurting her.

Andy then wanders downstairs and tells Amanda all about the good/bad people speech. “Don’t say that I told you that”, he adds (as usual).

As a person who works in politics, Helen says she “reads people all the time”, so she has to work on more than just Andy. She pulls McCrae into the cockpit room, and goes into an anti-Amanda rant. “Stick up to her. Be the man that McCrae is.” It goes on and on, and all we get from him are a lot of “yeah”. Ugh, she again brings up “America”. Make it stop! McCrae’s not happy about it either.

Oh wait, there is Amanda! She walks in, and McCrae follows her back out. Of course, he reports to her everything that Helen said. Amanda grabs her drink and wanders back in, pissed off at Helen. She reports to Spencer and Andy what was just said. “Do you think I’m a bully?” Although Spencer did actually say yes to the answer on the feeds, we skip to McCrae talking about how Amanda pushes him around. Oh wait, Spencer does finally say what we heard.

It’s now dark out, and Elissa and Helen try to work on GinaMarie by the hot tub. It’s the same speech, but a little bit angrier, and GinaMarie says that she’d like to keep Helen.

Andy is now seen walking into the HOH to talk to Helen and Elissa. When confronted about his vote, Andy claims that he’s “wavering”. Aaryn walks in as Andy explains his reasoning. “Do I lose one now, or a couple if I keep you here.” Elissa talks about loyalty, and how Amanda and McCrae only have loyalty to each other. Helen says that he has no targets right now, but will if he votes out Helen. When they threaten to get him nominated, Andy says in the diary room that he begins to worry. Then Helen pulls out the “America” crap once again.

It’s interesting how this was edited together. It’s from a couple of different days, and lots of stuff is missing. Like the edit on Elissa, and how she confronted Andy in that last conversation. It didn’t actually make him have second thoughts. Her threats reinforced his resolve. Lots more can be said, and I’m sure we will on Saturday’s Big Brother Gossip Show.

It’s already to go to the living room, and Julie talks about how they’ve all been “left in the dark”. They’re then shown footage from the last Have-Not competition, and Julie asks Amanda abotu what went through her mind entering the black box. She says that she was scared that Elissa was leading her through it. GinaMarie is then asked about the hardest part of that challenge, and she babbles about looking for Nick’s hat at four in the morning. “It was crazy bananas.”

The next question is about Elissa’s veto cmopetition, and they get to watch some footage from it, including Elissa knocking Andy into the wood. Andy says that he was terrified by “the ambition in Elissa’s eyes”.

Live voting is now already set to begin. Spencer gets to go first with his speech, and he says hello to all of his friends, and how he likes everybody. “Helen, you’re an amazing competitor.”

Helen then gets up, and my typing fingers already have cramps. She also says hi to her family and friends. She begins to tear up while talking about her family. She says that she’d love the votes from the house guests, and no matter the vote count they’ve all given her special memories. “I love you all. This has been the best of times, and never the worst of times.”

Voting begins with McCrae, who votes to evict Helen, as does Amanda. Elissa, though, votes to evict Spencer. Andy is next, and in tears he votes to evict Helen, as does GinaMarie. It’s a 4-1 vote, kids!

Julie reads the news to the house, and calmly hugs everybody. Her and Elissa have some words during their embrace, and the tears come. She blows kisses, and is then out the door.

We don’t cling to the picture wall as long as normal, as we go to Julie and Helen. She’s asked why the alliance with McCrae and Andy didn’t work, and she thinks it goes back to Andy’s nominations last week. “I knew in his heart he loves me, and he needed to make a big move.” Wow, it’s impossible to keep up. Keep trying to steal Julie’s job, Helen!

She also believes that Judd was more dangerous than Amanda, and that somebody else could eventually take her out. “What was so scary about Judd”, asks Julie with a chuckle. It was all the conspiracy theories, replies Helen. She then asks about the tears and whether they were real. Helen admits that she can turn them on at will, and even today she thought she could save herself when talking to GinaMarie.

It’s now goodbye message time, and Andy explains how he was troubled by the “good versus bad” comments. “You’ve been good to me, but you’ve been bad to other people you were supposed to be aligned with.” McCrae talks about the chess board, and how she kept wanting to go after his queen. Amanda then talks about how she knew weeks ago that she was coming after her. Elissa slowly talks about how she hopes that Helen is not watching it, as it means she’s been evicted. She promises to “fight for both of us”.

Julie concludes the segment by asking what she would have done different if given the chance. “I would not have taken Howard out of the game”, and would have evicted Amanda when she was the MVP nominee. She’s still pontificating!

Julie then informs her that she may get to go back in the house. “You and the rest of the members of the jury will be competing live tonight to get back into the game.” Oh God, she starts dancing around in her seat at this news. Helen still won’t shut up, as she wants to know if she can get some food first.

After commercials, we get some jury house footage. They indeed get to co-mingle while inside there, which I don’t agree should be done. Candice walks in first, and then Judd comes in and informs her that he had a “good old fashioned backdooring”. They’re sitting around playing cards when Jessie walks in the house. She sits down and tells them how Helen had done her wrong...and also how she did Judd wrong the previous week. She even tells them how she went out “guns blazing”. Judd is hoping there’s “some way I can get back in that house”.

They are now shown walking into the kitchen, where there’s a message giving them the news that they get to compete to return. All three want to get either Helen or Amanda out of the house! “Amanda really is the devil”, says Judd. Candice also wants to get out GinaMarie.

We go back to Julie, and the four are on the stage. Helen is jumping up and down as she always is, of course. She tells them that they’re going head to head in a live competition, and will go in as if they’ve never been evicted.
Julie again lies that the house has no clue, and the TV comes on in the house to bring everybody into the living room. She reminds them about what she said two weeks about not “being out of the game”. She tells them that the four members of the jury are going to compete to come back in.

The doorbell then rings, and the four come in! There’s lots of screaming, and Candice even hugs Aaryn! Wow, Candice also hugs GinaMarie, and tells her happy birthday. Helen is seen sprinting into a back room as the hugs continue. Amanda looks a bit concerned, though.

Julie has everybody head to the backyard, and we go to the backyard for a combined HOH/juror competition. FIrst, we have to endure commercials, but when we come back they’re standing on small ledges that look like they’re in a baseball dugout. Balls are going to be thrown at each of them, and the first to catch ten without falling wins HOH. So, if a evictee is the first to catch ten, they’re not only returning but they’ll be the HOH. No clue what happens if one of the others is the first with ten.

We hear a crack of a baseball bat, and then they all come down. Jessie actually catches one! Before the second balls comes, though, the “sprinklers” come on. Too bad we don’t get to see another ball hit as it’s taking forever between “hits”!

There’s one more mini-segment before the show is over, but it doesn’t look like anybody else has a ball. Wow, what if Jessie does return? Balls are then hit, and a number of players (including Jessie) catch them. One more set of balls comes a bit harder as we head into the credits, but it is still surprising how long they’re taking between rounds.

Well, that’s it! What did you think? Who is going to win this comp? Let us know what you think!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 24 Recap

I almost forgot there was a show tonight. The feeds have been full of silliness today, and I just spent three hours watching the entire house have a meltdown. Too bad only a couple of minutes of this footage will actually make tomorrow night’s show.

I looked at the clock just in time, so here we go. There will be lots of pontificating tonight. Maybe even a cheerleader dance, and a slightly unexpected veto win in a competition hosted by a “lovesick beaver”. Sound like fun? Well, let’s go then!

Before we get to that, though, we have to sit through some pontificating from Elissa and Helen, the current nominees. Aaryn says that her speech was “very strategic”, designed to make it look like she was protecting herself and GinaMarie instead of the unknown 3 A.M. alliance. Helen says that you should never feel safe, but she actually does because of her (phony) final three deal with Andy and McCrae. Eliissa, meanwhile, feels “really sad” to be up on the block with her “closest ally”.

Elissa is then seen moaning “I’m sorry” to Helen, and then stating the most obvious thing a nominee can say. “We have to win the veto. I mean seriously” No shit, Sherlock! Somehow Helen thinks that nominating the two of them is a hope they’d turn against each other. No, not really, but she is right in saying that she needs to temper Elissa’s behavior the next few days. “No more fighting with Aaryn. We’ve got to be calm.” The idea, although they don’t really have the power to complete it without Aaryn, is to win veto and put up Spencer. “Just one of us has to win the veto.”

Andy walks into the room, and Helen grabs him for a chat in the cockpit. He says he “feels very out of the loop”, and Helen then says that she was a bit angry with Elissa for what happened (and was not really shown on Sunday) the day before. She also lies and says that Elissa said it was her fault for Helen being nominated. Andy fake cries, and says that he can’t handle losing either of them. She reiterates that they have to make Spencer the target.

Meanwhile, Amanda is grinding all over McCrae before they’re interrupted by Elissa. She plops herself down on the other bed, and Amanda tells her they were just making out. Elissa asks McCrae for his thoughts, and he says they need to win the veto. Elissa then complains that she thinks that Helen is blaming her for being nominated. Wait, what? Amanda sees an opening, and says that Helen is now going to start campaigning for herself. “Just play hard”, she says. Elissa almost accurately reads the script that says that part of her thinks Amanda is “just manipulating me”, but another part sort of believes her. (Too bad a lot of good stuff wasn’t shown here.)

Now Spencer comes into the cockpit room, and Andy tells him what Helen just said. Andy says he needs to fight for the veto, but Andy can’t. Spencer hopes that there will be a situation where Andy can throw it to him.

Oh boy, it’s already time to pick the players! Arryn pulls her chip first, and it is GinaMarie. Helen then pulls Spencer, her worst nightmare. Elissa’s chip is house guest choice, and she picks Andy, who didn’t want to play. “Dammit!”

Helen and Andy talk again, and she asks if the plan is to send her home. Andy feigns ignorance, saying that nobody is telling him. He says that she has him and McCrae, for sure. She also thinks that he would use the veto on her if he was to win it. “I’m so blatantly lying to her face.”

Beating a dead horse, Amanda and Arryn are talking about how Helen can’t win. Andy joins them, and Amanda tells him that he can’t throw it until it’s definite that she won’t win. This doesn’t please Amanda. “I feel like right now in the game, I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t”, he says in the diary room.

After commercials, it is indeed VETO time. They look up and see a giant beaver. Yes, it’s OTEV time, although Helen mispronounces it. So each round has a “love letter” written to an evictee, and then they all have to find the letter in the mud. The last one to return is eliminated.

We sit through a few “have to win it” diary rooms before the first round. It’s about a rant about wine, and the game is on. Jeremy is obviously the correct answer here, and Helen is the first up with it. Elissa claims that while looking for his letter, she scanned where the others are. Elissa is the second up, followed by Arryn, Andy, and Spencer. Yes, GinaMarie is out...and not happy. “All I wanted was to hear a Nick riddle.”

Round two is about Judd’s bear shirt, and this time Spencer is the first to return. Almost all of them are returning at the same time, but Elissa jumps in just ahead of Helen. I mean, she sprinted as Helen was halfway up as Elissa was still in the water. Helen is out, and Amanda giggles.

The next round is about a clown, so it’s Candice. Again, Spencer is easily the first back up, followed by Aaryn. Helen is getting mad as Andy isn’t moving real fast, but they both race back at the same time. Elissa knocks Andy to the side, and he bumps his head on the log. “Elissa Enzo’d me!” Yep, Andy is out this time.

The fourth “love letter” is about a body “chiseled from stone”. Elissa says it has to be Howard, so she’s the first back up this time, followed by Spencer. Arryn is now out!

We’re now down to Spencer versus Elissa. Normally, this would be no contest, but Spencer has been kicking ass so far. Can he continue? The question is about giving away money, so Elissa says it has to be Jessie. Spencer is concerned as he’s never seen her name in the mud, and he grabs his around the same time as Elissa. Unfortunately for him, she makes it up in plenty of time to win the veto! “I guess I’m good in the mud!” Helen is as excited as Elissa (ok, more), and Amanda can’t figure out why as she’s the actual target.

It’s commercial time, and afterwards Elissa and Helen have a “crazy dance”. Well, Helen does. Elissa doesn’t really do much but high five. It’s also time for Helen to give one of her patented motivational speeches. “Your head is in this game.” Now they have to get Arryn to put up Spencer.

Andy joins them, and Helen thanks him for “trying to win it for us”. Actually, she admits in the diary room that she was disappointed in him. “I saw how he was playing in that comp. He wasn’t hustling at all!” Uh oh, maybe Andy isn’t fighting for her at all!

We’re now in the kitchen, and Elissa asks Amanda what’s going to happen. Amanda says it looks like Spencer is going up but Helen is going home. Amanda says in the diary room that she’s telling her this so that Elissa will become closer to her. She adds that there is nothing that they can do to stop this, and that the more she does to try to save her will hurt her in the long run. Elissa is not happy with this, but “I definitely don’t want Amanda gunning for me, as the whole house will be against me again”.

Helen is then seen talking to Elissa in the bathroom. After Elissa complains about how dirty it is, Helen tells her that she’s going to go talk to Arryn about what’s going to happen. Elissa warns her about something that is impossible. “We have to make sure they’re not going to back door you.” Look, you can’t back door an original nominee! Helen asks if she thinks Amanda is trying to get rid of her, and Elissa gives a weird little answer. Yep, Helen now knows it’s true, but Elissa doesn’t want to be involved. “Please don’t bring me into anything with Amanda.” Helen knows that Elissa’s weirdness is sending her a signal, and that Amanda has clearly threatened her.

She then barges into the HOH room, and immediately goes on the offensive about how her “life is on the line”. Ugh, one of those cliches I hate. We hear this spiel about how her, Elissa, Aarryn, and GinaMarie have finally came together “to get rid of everybody in the house”. It’s because of Amanda and McCrae that her and Elissa were on the block, and this starts to pull on Aaryn’s heartstrings. Oh wait, I’m not supposed to believe that Aaryn has a heart! Aaryn, though, lets slip that she thinks Andy is on their side, too. Cue the music! Aaryn continues on about how everything she has said has gone to Amanda. “The game changing move for this game may be getting Amanda out of this house”, proclaims Helen as we go to commercials.

Ugh, we’re now back to talking about the time that Jeremy stole the bottle of wine. Why are they showing this idiocy? Oh, I see why, as the retell starts a big fight between Aaryn and Amanda. I still don’t give a shit. McCrae’s not happy about this, especially as this is shortly before Aaryn has to put up a replacement nominee. “Who does she thinks she is?” says Aaryn as she wanders up to the HOH.

Andy follows her up, and reminds her that they have a “solid position” in the house. He says they’ve “never once given one doubt” about them. Amanda comes into the room, and they again rehash “winegate”. This time, Amanda storms out, and Aaryn starts crying about how she’s always done what Amanda wanted with no respect back from her. Andy continues to tell her that this is the correct road to go down. Well, we got the footage needed to make it look like we don’t know who will be the new nominee.

Guess what? It’s time for the veto ceremony! Let’s skip the bullshit voice overs. We know that Elissa is going to use it, and Spencer is indeed put up in her place “because this is the corner that I’m being pushed into”. Elissa gives us a bit of a changeup, though, as she says that she wishes she could use it to save Helen instead.

Spencer is worried, Helen is disappointed, and Aaryn has no guts. “Amanda is scary. People are scared to piss Amanda off because she has a way of getting the house on her side and doing whatever she wants to do.” Amanda is obviously happy with Aaryn, and that’s it for tonight!

What did you think of the episode? Did you enjoy the OTEV? Should Helen go home tomorrow? Tell us in the comments!

Crazy Elissa

After this morning's manifesto on Helen, I thought I'd lay off the feeds today. I assumed it would be more of the same. Oh boy, could I have been more wrong.

It all started around 11:30 this morning, and Elissa came upstairs to talk to Aaryn. Things started well, as Elissa stated that they should work together to go after Spencer. Remember, last night the brain trust of Helen and Elissa figured out that would scare everybody.

Well, that didn't last long, as Elissa just couldn't control herself. Throughout the chat, there were little digs on how much better her life is than Aaryn's. For a bit, Aaryn just ignored these little jabs as Elissa continued to say that they should forget everything that has gone on in the past. "I've never put you up", she says. Well, yeah, Elissa has never been HOH! "I don't feel that you're a threat to me", she adds.

Things get worse when Elissa tells Aaryn that she's naive to think she'd get any votes other than Amanda and McCrae. If Helen does go home, she's going to blame Aaryn because she didn't convince Andy to vote against Spencer. "I'm not being mean here, but you haven't done a thing in this game." Really? Aaryn points out her wins, but Elissa just scoffs at them as luck or because of a partner.

This went on for about an hour, and got especially worse when Elissa blurted out, "I'm Rachel's sister. They cast me for a reason. They're not going to get rid of me."

Helen came up and attempted to play peacemaker, but couldn't have been less successful. She blurted out a bunch of her mom stuff, and her dreams, and eventually even Elissa sort of turned on her rhetoric. "America is watching me as a mom who can't be saying things like B-I-T-C-H." 

Elissa finally leaves, and Aaryn unloads on Helen about the conversation with Elissa. "She thinks we're scum. She think we don't deserve to live. She thinks we're peasants!" The whole situation has been ridiculous.

Andy is then brought upstairs, and Helen pretty much commands him to do what she wants. This doesn't go over well with Andy...and it's still going on as we speak. Fire up those feeds!
