The Night Owl

Crazy, Crazy, CRAZY!!  They are ALL out of their minds and have been at it nonstop for most of the day and night.  I don't even know how to begin explaining all that happened, so I will just try to hit the high (and really low) points.

When I fired up the feeds today the veto comp was already underway.  When the feeds returned we learned that it was the Zingbot veto comp and that Amanda had won.  I think we were all kind of expecting that to happen.  No, I do NOT think it was rigged. I just think that in BB, typically if a lot of the HGs don't want someone to win, they usually do. IE Elissa winning HOH this past week. I think this year may see the end of the Zingbot comps, or maybe they will just start doing them at a different time in the season, because this one was as rough as last year.  Last year the person wearing the Zingbot costume had a heat-stroke and fainted.  This year Judd threw up and had to be put on oxygen, and some of the others required oxygen and medical attention because they couldn't breathe.  Heat is not a friend to the Zingbot comps.

One would THINK that winning veto and being able to keep both herself and McCrae safe would make Amanda happy, but ohh no, not until she is in complete control of every move made by the HOH can she rest.  Amanda does not want anyone but Judd or GinaMarie going up next to Aaryn on the block because she wants to be able to keep Aaryn.  Elissa wants/wanted to put Andy up because she felt that Amanda and McCrae would not vote Andy out in order to keep Aaryn (which is true).  Amanda created an elaborate scheme to fool people. She marched up to the HOH and told Elissa that she HOPES she puts up Andy because no one else will, and that she is keeping Aaryn no matter what and so will McCrae.  She told Elissa that everyone likes Andy so this is the perfect opportunity to vote Andy out.  Elissa remained mostly unaffected and jus tkind of made fun of Amanda saying that to her face.  After Amanda went back outside, Elissa came down and saw her sitting and talking game with Andy.  She asked her if she was telling Andy her latest scheme to vote him out.  THe truth is, Amanda was in fact telling Andy that  he needed to act like she told him she was going to vote him out.  (it's already confusing and I just started).

Anyway, Andy ran into the house and went in the cockpit and started fake crying to Elissa and telling her that Amanda said she was going to vote him out, but the only way to make sure Aaryn went home was to ptu up GinaMarie.  Elissa told Andy she wasn't sure if he was just faking and in on the scheme or not, but that she didn't want him to go home, she just wanted to assure that Aaryn went home.

A little while after this, many fireworks happened here and there between Amanda and Elissa.  Elissa while giggling told Amanda that she threw the competition to her to help her stay safe (in order to annoy her).  Her plan worked, and Amanda got all fired up and started yelling about how ridiculous it was for anyone to say that etc...  Then she told Elissa that she looked plastic and started insulting her husband and kids etc... as Amanda does.   Elissa brought up Amanda telling everyone she was pregnant during the sequester time before the show, and asked her why she would still come on the show after losing a baby and then immediately hookup with someone who wasn't her boyfriend the first week.   Blows like this were exchanged throughout the night for a while until they got booze and they went into their separate groups to talk trash about each other to other people.  Amanda strutted around wearing the veto necklace while doing this...I just couldn't leave that part out.

At some point Judd talked first to Andy and Elissa up in the HOH room about making sure that Andy stayed if he went up.  Elissa told everyone she was convinced that GinaMarie would be voting out Aaryn with everyone else, and Judd even said he would offer GM is $5k to vote against Aaryn.  Andy was still nervous about the idea of going on the block though and also still playing it up for the two of them, and exited the HOH in kind of a huff.  Judd then talked to GinaMarie downstairs in front of Andy and started asking her if she would vote Aaryn out.  GinaMarie was non-committal about it (because she will never vote against Aaryn).  GinaMarie had also had a LOOOONG mind bending chat with Amanda during all the fighting, and was starting to distance herself from Elissa a little.  She told Judd "I can't vote out my BB bunny"  when it was just the 2 of them, and that got Judd thinking. What he did not realize is that what he was thinking is exactly the plan that Amanda wanted.

Judd went to Andy and Spencer and asked them if they would vote out Aaryn and they both said they would and swore to it.  Judd said maybe Elissa SHOULD put up GinaMarie since that's the only vote they are not sure about.  He ran the idea by Elissa and told her why.  She asked Andy and Spencer about their votes if she put up GM, and made them swear by them, and they all had a really REALLY long talk about all working together to get Amanda out of the house in the upcoming week. Everything SEEMED to be right on track.

Judd went outside where Amanda, McCrae, and Aaryn were trahsing Elissa by the hot tub, and Amanda tried to get into it with Judd, with Aaryn jumping in like the good lapdog that she is.  Amanda kept pointing out "you hate me. I can tell.  I didn't do anything to you that everyone else in this house didn't do.  It was Helen and Elissa that wanted this for you"  blah blah blah blah blah.  Judd wouldn't take the bait and just kept telling her he didn't want to bring up old wounds, but he did mention that he saw the tape where she smiled really big when Aaryn nominated him.  Aaryn kept throwing in something about how he had used the term "BB Bunny" in a condescending way towards her (WHAT?!).  So help me, it was the dumbest thing she has said since "the most offensive thing you can do to a Texan is sit on their hat." 

While this half argument was going on, Andy and Spencer talked to each other in the cockpit alone for a few minutes.  They agreed that they really DO want Aaryn gone this week and that they were just going to have to tell Amanda "Look, we are voting her out and that's just how it is."  Andy also told Spencer that truthfully he is leaning more towards working with Judd and Elissa than with Amanda and McCrae, and that if he got HOH he thinks he would have to put Amanda and McCrae up so they could get Amanda  out of the house, because it is time to cut her loose. They both agreed that even though they had been scared about Judd coming back in the house, they both feel now that it's the best thing that could have happened, and perfect timing for going after Amanda.

Judd went and talked to GinaMarie a little bit and told her he didn't know if she would go up or not, but that if she did, for her not to worry because she was staying.  He promised her he would never directly put her up and told her how grateful he was to her for being one of the only 2 people that did not want him out when he got evicted.  Aaryn came in and started telling lies and talking bullshit as usual (this really is all Aaryn does.  She mostly runs to Amanda and just makes things up out of nowhere.  It's really strange).  She told GinaMarie to go and have a chat with Elissa.

Judd went upstairs to tell Elissa what was going on  and warn her that Aaryn had told GinaMarie to come and have a conversation with her.  This is when Elissa lost her marbles again.  Elissa decided that Judd was working with Amanda/McCrae/Aaryn again.  I have NO idea where this came from, but she was clearly angry about it.  Judd tried to tell Elissa that wasn't the case and explained to her all the reasons he can't stand them now and wants Amanda out and wants Aaryn out.  Elissa wasn't having it.  Judd gave Elissa the gold coin he keeps with him that his mom gave him and told her that if he was lying she could keep it. Then Andy came in the room.  Andy confirmed everything Judd was saying about being anti-Amanda and Aaryn now and wanting to vote Aaryn out.  Elissa did not believe them and dismissed them from her room saying she was going to bed...but she didn't.

Elissa decided to hold court with GinaMarie and told her that Judd wants her up on the block SOOO bad because he wants Elissa and GM to turn against each other...which is NOT true at all.  Judd really wanted to work with GinaMarie, Elissa, Andy, and Spencer.   Elissa told GinaMarie that she is NOT putting her up, but that she is pretending she is going to and then she is putting Andy on the block anyway.  Putting Andy up won't send him home, Aaryn will still go, but Elissa's perception of what is happening is WAAAY off the map.  GinaMarie TOLD Elissa she will vote out Aaryn.  Whether she actually will or not, I don't know, but Amanda and McCrae are not going to vote Andy out, so really it won't matter in the end except that now Judd won't have the original support he did from GinaMarie and Elissa.

Spencer and Judd are still awake just talking about past things and about wanting Amanda out.  A few others are still awake as well, but things seem to be winding down for the night.  So much game happened tonight it's hard to keep up, and I LOVE it.  I am loving the fact that the feeds are not boring again. 

I know a lot of people tweeted me in anger about Judd working with Andy and Spencer tonight, but honestly, what could he do?  He can't just work alone with Elissa who can't play for the coming HOH, especially because she is bat shit crazy and stops trusting people out of nowhere for weird ass reasons.  He has to have someone, and he can't work with and doesn't want to work with Aaryn/Amanda/McCrae.  So there it is.  I think it was sort of a wise choice with his only mistake being telling Elissa to put up GM instead of Andy..which he really had good intentions about.

It's time for me to wind down now myself so I can gear up for another day of non-stop gaming.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Perfect Backdoor -- Or Not

Amanda on the block with no ability to save herself!

That's what I woke up this morning thinking about. #BB15 events had finally led to a scenario which helped this newbie better understand the concept of the "backdoor." Indy Mike helped me learn it in generic terms:

Elissa holds court in the HOH room.- Head of Household nominates two people for eviction.

- In the Power of Veto competition, players consist of the HOH, the two nominees, and three additional randomly-drawn house guests. (Sometimes one of the chips drawn says "house guest's choice," so one player is slightly less random.)

- Earlier in the #BB15 season when the MVP picked a third nominee, the POV players consisted of the HOH, the three nominees, and two additional randomly-drawn house guests.

- If the HOH wins POV, she or he might save one of the original nominees -- so that s/he can nominate somebody different, who would then have no opportunity to compete to pull her/himself off the block before the eviction vote. This new nominee (who, by the way, would be labelled on our Ticker graphic at right as "Nominated via POV"), if evicted, would be considered to have been "backdoored."

- If one of the nominees wins POV, s/he virtually always saves her/himself ... so whomever picked the saved nominee (HOH or, earlier in the season, MVP) picks a new nominee. This new nominee, if evicted, is considered to have been "backdoored."

Power of Veto.- If a non-nominee wins POV, s/he gets to choose to pull somebody off the block. And then ... yup ... a new nominee goes up. If the new nominee is evicted, is s/he also considered to have been backdoored?

- The POV winner may choose not to use his/her veto, leaving the original eviction nominees in place. (Andy did that last week.)

As the day started this morning, the situation was this: Elissa is HOH, Aaryn and McCrae are on the block, and the POV competition was coming up. Elissa was Helen's strongest ally and she's no fan of Amanda. I haven't myself been much of an Elissa fan (I certainly had nothing good to say about her in my last post), but there was reason to think Elissa had been scheming to backdoor Amanda. And this, to me, was indeed good news.

Oh, noooo! See what Amanda's wearing today?What I didn't realize until reading Ash's "Night Owl" post this morning is that the house guests selected to be the additional POV players today were Judd, GinaMarie, and ... Amanda. Uh oh!

Here's another thing newbie viewers need to learn: An unnominated house guest who wins POV also wins immunity for the week. She or he can't be nominated.

You get one guess who won POV early Saturday afternoon. So much for the perfect backdoor! It was exactly the right time for somebody who had previously won nothing to win a comp.

My dream scenario for this next week is ruined. Since my favorite house guest (Helen) was evicted, I was hoping to see Amanda go next -- thus eliminating the two most powerful players in consecutive weeks and necessitating an entirely new power structure to be formed in #BB15's remaining weeks. That would have been absolutely delicious to watch.

Let the next speculations begin. Current thinking is that Elissa will put up Andy, Spencer, or GinaMarie. Who do you think is most likely? Amanda will save McCrae, obviously. Will Aaryn go to jury or the new nominee? Comment below or hit me up @uselesstraffic.

Knowing they're potential replacement nominees, Andy and Spencer try to get on Elissa's good side.

The Night Owl

Wow wow WOW!! What a night!!  I will try to gloss over the early day and evening stuff so I can get to the juicy bits for you.   Early in the day McCrae and Aaryn were nominated.  Elissa had stated to everyone that Aaryn was her target, but as I said before, I was hoping she had a bigger plan.  Elissa made a deal with Judd to work with him for as long as they could toward the end, and Elissa told him she was so happy he was back and confided in him her plans. 

Aaryn moped around knowing that she could quite possibly be going home, and despite everyone telling her to just be quiet and they have the votes to keep her, she still for some reason ran to the ONE person who wouldn't and couldn't help her....Amanda!  She told Amanda she was so pissed that Judd was back in the house and got his key. She told her she was sure that GinaMarie had a deal with Elissa (which she kind of does, but not the kind of deal Aaryn was thinking).  Amanda and Aaryn bitched and whined to each other and laid around for most of the evening.

While Amanda, Aaryn, and McCrae were laying around, GinaMarie had a very very long conversation about Aaryn and about Amanda.  Elissa told GinaMarie a lot of the things Aaryn has said about her and they both agreed for the most part that Amanda was a huge part, if not all of the problem between the girls in the house. 

Cut to a little while later and Elissa has a DR session.  when she came out of the DR session she caught Judd in the bathroom hallway and asked him what he thought about the idea of getting rid of Amanda instead.  He said he was on board.  She asked him if he thought it was a better idea than getting rid of Aaryn, and he said definitely.  So she sent him to go get Aaryn and send her up to the HOH room.

When Aaryn came into the HOH room, Elissa just came right out with it: "I think we should just put everything behind us and work together and get Amanda out."   She asked Aaryn if she would be on board and of course Aaryn said yes.  Elissa told her that she almost wanted to win the veto herself just to prove to Aaryn how serious she was, but that she still wanted Aaryn to fight like crazy for it.  They had a long talk in which Elissa told her that she felt like Amanda was the problem between the two of them and she really wanted to see if they could work together with Amanda out of the house and not in the middle of them.  It's honestly one of the only times I think I've ever seen Aaryn not scowling.

A little while after Aaryn found out about what was going on, she only had time to fill GinaMarie (who already knew) on a little bit of it when the feeds were cut to fish so they could draw players for the veto competition.  Elissa told Aaryn in their discussion that if she gets HG choice she could do whatever she wanted to, but that she might want to consider picking Judd over GM as he is a little stronger in competition and she knew for a fact Judd would take Aaryn off the block.  Earlier in the night Amanda had told Aaryn that she had to pick HER to play for her (why Amand though Aaryn would pick her is beyond me.  Yes, I pick you so you can play for you and yoru boyfriend and not me..).  While picking Amanda might be a smart move because she has yet to win anything, Aaryn went with Elissa's plan instead.  When the feeds returned, chaos had ensued.

Spencer was complaining because he did not get drawn. McCrae and Amanda were freaking out about Aaryn picking Judd to play for her.  Everyone was essentially going a little nuts.  Once Spencer calmed down, McCrae came into the cockpit to bitch about the situation and about how he didn't think Elissa looked happy when she drew Amanda's chip to play. Everyone was making their own argument for their own problem at once and also wondering if it would be a night comp or a morning comp.  I preferred the Judd response.

Just when all the boys in the cockpit were starting to get settled down, Amanda started her mad pacing through the house watching for anyone who might be talking game.  She passed by GinaMarie and Elissa drinking at the kitchen counter a few times and mean mugged them until Elissa finally spit her drink out (literally) in a fit of giggles.  This sent Amanda off.  She thought they were whispering to each other, and so she started yelling really loudly to Elissa that GinaMarie had talked more shit about her than anyone else in the house etc..  GinaMarie fought right back though with a "And you never said ANYTHING about her though, huh?"  It got louder and louder until all you could hear was GinaMarie yelling over Amanda, and Elissa took GM by the shoulders and told her to just stop because it was what Amanda wanted. 

Amanda and McCrae retreated to their bed so that Amanda could talk about how much she hates all the "phony ass kissers" in the house and talk about how she would never do that and how REAL she is. (lol I'm not even trying to be funny..this joke just makes itself).  GM came in and apologized for getting loud and told her that they really were just laughing at her pacing and making faces at them. 

Amanda still on a mission marched up to the HOH to "talk" to Elissa.  She started with her usually loop "I've been the only one there for you." "I saved you" "They hate you" "They are all terrible people and you only have me."  She ended in tears and sobs asking Elissa if she was going to be "backdoored (even though you can't be backdoored if you are playing in veto).  Elissa literally could not contain herself.  She started laughing and she couldn't stop.  A few times Elissa tried to hold in the idea of Amanda going up, but every time Amanda asked she kept bursting into giggles.  After a while of Amanda's ranting, Elissa told her she was going to bed and they would just have to talk about it later and sent Amanda and McCrae from the room.

Amanda of course started whining and complaining to McCrae, and Aaryn when she could find her about Elissa laughing at her.  She also kept trying to convince Aaryn that Aaryn needs to let HER win the veto so she can take McCrae off and then convince everyone to keep Aaryn

While Amanda went through her motions and loops, the rest of the house studied the memory wall together and speculated whether this would be "morphomatic" veto or "How bad do you want it" or something else.

Everyone has gone to bed now, but Aaryn halfway filled in Spencer on what the real plan really was before they went to bed, and Judd let Andy speculate without actually saying anything to him that it would really be the best for all of them if Amanda did not win veto and went home this week.

I really feel bad for McCrae.  The poor guy is on the block for the first time, but as per usually he is forced to try to calm his crazy ass girlfriend down and try to save both of their asses now that she is making so much noise.  At this point he is kind of stuck with her until she leaves because it would be too risky to jump ship just now without actually knowing what the plan is or having a sure fire parachute alliance. 

I do not think the veto will be tonight.  It may be early in the morning, or they may have just done the draw tonight because tension was high and they knew people would explode and lose it.  If the latter, I'm thankful they brought the entertainment.  If anyone playing in the veto (McCrae, Aaryn, Judd, Elissa, GinaMarie, Amanda) besides Amanda wins it, it looks like Amanda might actually be toast this week.  Elissa is nuts and I have no idea what she has in store or if she will keep her sights set on Amanda, but for now I like where this is headed.  Then again, the one person you don't want to win  always does, right?  Either way, this has been a fun evening to watch on the feeds.  There was also a lot of humor and entertainment in between that I didn't have time to write about (thank you Judd).  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Here's hoping things get even more nuts after veto tomorrow!! Until tomorrow night...

There's Logic Behind My Loyalty

HelenThose here who like me, if anybody does, won't like me at all after reading this: I have been, and proudly remain, a loyal member of #TeamHelen.

Helen is the only house guest who hasn't annoyed me with confrontational mannerisms and deceit.

Don't misunderstand ... I'm not at all saying that she hasn't been confrontational and deceitful. As does every game player, she absolutely has employed her share of each. It just didn't annoy me.

Unlike, say, Amanda. Who has won nothing yet controls everything. Who has nothing kind to say about anybody. Who treats even her allies with disdain.

Unlike GinaMarie. Who is quite possibly the most mean-spirited non-fictional character I've ever seen on television. Geez, did you hear what she said to Candice the very last second that unfortunate woman was in the house? That was the moment when I was simply done with GM.

Amanda, you'll go eventually. Won't miss ya. GinaMarie? Sorry, I'll miss you even less than Amanda.Unlike Aaryn. Who was seemingly hated by all house guests (and viewers) for weeks yet survived it. Who has become, whether via actual skill or blind luck, one of the strongest players in the house ... yet who has resolutely and dutifully wasted the many opportunities given to her. Who has dreamt out loud in the Diary Room about big moves but who did only what others dictated.

Unlike McCrae. Who lives in the shadow of an autarch without realizing he can't win unless she goes first.

I will do what I want as HOH. I will do what I want as HOH. I will -- d'oh!! (Aaryn channels Homer Simpson.)Unlike Andy. Who lies and floats and lies and floats, feigning loyalty throughout. Who, except during his HOH week, purposely avoids success during every competition.

Unlike Candice. Who deserved none of the disgusting comments thrown at her by ignorant bullies but who literally slept through her eviction week, totally refusing to compete.

Unlike Elissa. Who is there only to shill for Elissa Slater Enterprises Company Incorporated, apparently under license and permission from CBS, if rumors about her higher stipend and special considerations are true.

And, at least a little, unlike Spencer. Who seems to survive not by being likable but by being less dislikable than others.

Helen's & Elissa's alliance is inherently less powerful than McCrae's & Amanda's. Showmance trumps friendship. Would Amanda have been as powerful without McCrae?Resigned to her fate, Helen packs.Helen has played the game enthusiastically, unapologetically, and, especially this week, constantly. She talked with everybody, trying to shape events and to prolong her time. Her strategy worked for many weeks, effectively sharing power with Amanda. You might not enjoy Helen's ceaseless talking and/or the ways she manipulated (or attempted to manipulate) people, but can't we agree that Helen is way more of a game player than many others in #BB15 are or have been?

Who makes you feel like this more often, Spencer? Amanda or Helen?Yes, I'm still new to all of this ... and, yes, she's been my favorite since I started watching. But as I've learned more about this game, my respect for Helen has grown.

I have no expectation that this will convince anybody to join me on #TeamHelen. Also, despite lots of speculation, to me it feels quite unlikely that Helen will win the jury comp to bounce right back into the house tonight.

Even so, even if you don't like her, wouldn't that be delicious to watch? After endless weeks of unanimous, predictable, boring eviction votes pre-arranged not by the HOH but by Amanda and, somewhat less directly, Helen, I would love to watch the following turn of events:

- Helen wins the jury competition and comes right back in.

- Elissa or Helen wins HOH.

- The HOH nominates, say, GinaMarie and Andy, with the intent to backdoor Amanda. Or Amanda and McCrae, for the sheer theatrics of it.

Helen dreams of a miracle. With Helen or Elissa as HOH, how hard would it be to convince Aaryn, GinaMarie, and Spencer that they'd last longer with Amanda gone -- and be happier, too?  For the second week in a row, only a three-vote majority would be needed to make it happen.

Only three votes!

On the other hand, this newbie has learned that Amanda's nastiness, while universally acknowledged by the house guests, apparently has no bearing on their strategies.

I haven't yet learned why.

"Unfortunately, this is how it ends. Unless a miracle happens," Helen said (at 6:46 PM last night, August 21, on camera 4). And she's right.

I hold one hope for #BB15 redemption: If Amanda goes the week after Helen, it'll be a whole new show.

When Helen goes, I'll be sad ... but Ash and Scott will be delighted. And for the record, I will enjoy reading their snarkiness about the entire episode in their next posts, as I have in their last ones. Don't take anything we write here too seriously, folks! We're glad you're reading, even when you might not be agreeing. What's your miracle scenario? Share it below or tweet me @uselesstraffic.

The Night Owl

Sometimes when you add alcohol crazy things happen.  The night started out pretty standard.  Amanda had a confrontation with Helen because she knew that Helen had been campaigning to Aaryn and GinaMarie to stay in the house.  The conversation took a really long time and went in a lot of circles, but basically ended up with Amanda outing all the information her allies had asked her not to about their conversations with Helen, and then Amanda telling Helen that she did not want to vote  to keep her, but that she was just one person and she didn't know how the others would be voting.  She also said she would vote with the house. 

After this there was some scrambling back and forth from Helen about votes.  Andy told Helen he was keeping her 100% (he isn't) and McCrae kind of said he was keeping her, but also tried to bait her a little because he said he wants to know if Elissa was MVP or not, and thinks Helen might tell him for his vote.

Shortly after the scrambling, alcohol arrived.  Aaryn caught a little bit of a buzz and she and Amanda got into it while re-hashing the silly red wine Jeremy incident.  Aaryn told Amanda she was being a "little cunty" that night and Amanda freaked out. Aaryn pointed out that Aaryn had actually told her she WAS a "cunt" before but Amanda tried to justify that by saying it was just a joke.  Aaryn didn't take it so lightly and the next thing you know they are arguing with each other. 

Originally it was just a small spat, but then Amanda started fighting with McCrae about it when McCrae told Amanda he did think she was a little "cunty" the night of the wine.  Amanda freaked out at McCrae and while she was yelling at him, upstairs Andy and Aaryn were talking about their ideal final 3 being GinaMarie and the two of them.  Andy drunkenly agreed with Aaryn that Amanda And McCrae are after GM because she is close with Aaryn, then Amanda came  up to the HOH with what started out trying to be something close to an apology, but ended up being a defensive mess that started a bigger fight.

After Amanda marched out of the HOH room mad to go fight with McCrae some more, Aaryn and Andy had a really long chat about everything Aaryn doesn't like about Amanda right now.  Aaryn cried about how she feels like she is doing Amanda's dirty work instead of doing what she wants to do.  She complained about how she feels like she is just being used while she is at the bottom of their alliance etc..  Eventually Amanda was traded for GinaMarie and Aaryn continued her rant.

After a while of ranting and talking about Amanda not having Aayrn's best interest in mind, GinaMarie and Aaryn came up with a plan to possibly backdoor Amanda in the morning at the veto ceremony.  They talked for a long time about the votes they thought they would have and the possibility of working with Helen and Andy, and eventually came to the conclusion that they wanted to follow through with the plan.

While GinaMarie and Aaryn were plotting Amanda's demise this week, Amanda continued to fight with McCrae downstairs.  McCrae felt like Amanda needed to just shut her mouth and let it go with Amanda, but Amanda of course said she "can't just sit there and let Aaryn think she is right about this!"  I am AMAZED and astounded at this point that Amanda has not killed her own game yet.  Her need to be right all the time is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen in the BB house.  To me it seems like the worst social game ever to walk around screaming at people all the time when you are usually wrong and can't win anything, but apparently in this season it gets everyone to think they have to listen to you.

Regardless, while Amanda and McCrae continued to fight, Aaryn got GM to go downstairs and summon Helen to the HOH room.  Helen and Aaryn talked about how Amanda only uses them both for her own gain and Aaryn told Helen she would feel way more comfortable with her there.  She told Helen all about Amanda's plan to get her out and about the fact that the nomination were not her choice again this week.  She told Helen that if Spencer goes up on the block she is going home, because that is Amanda's plan.  She then presented her with the idea of backdooring Amanda and asked for Helen's advice on getting the votes to make sure Amanda would go home.  They had just begun to get into a talk about making a deal with Spencer to get him to vote their way when Andy entered the HOH.

Aaryn approached Andy with the idea even though she had originally said they couldn't tell Andy because he would never vote that way.  Andy said (for the sake of saving face in front of Helen I'm sure) that he would definitely vote out whoever Aaryn put up and that he was cool with the plan.  Helen started sobbing and grabbed Andy's arm and told him she would NEVER vote him out so he better vote to keep her.  The plan was starting to gain some momentum when suddenly Amanda decided to march back up to the HOH and scatter everyone out so she could squash her beef with Aaryn.

Amanda told Aaryn that she alone had been keeping Aaryn safe and she alone was the reason Aaryn was there.  She also said she alone is the one that trusts Aaryn (even though last night she was planning when to get rid of her) and this whole "everything I do for you" rant went on for a long time.  For a while Aaryn resisted and told Amanda the problems she has with her, but eventually as we knew would likely happen, Amanda talked until Aaryn finally broke down.  Once we reached sobbing levels, I knew it was over and the backdoor plan was off the table.

Unfortunately for Aaryn, GinaMarie, Helen, and Elissa had been downstairs talking in the cockpit about the plan and Andy had told Spencer about it.  Spencer actually surprised me by telling McCrae and Andy that he was going to go volunteer himself and campaign to get himself put up because putting up Amanda was a bad idea.  He then swore that even if Amanda got put up, he would not vote against her no matter what.  Spencer and McCrae then started discussing how Aaryn needs to go very soon...like sooner than Elissa or anyone else..as in next week.

While Amanda and Aaryn were hashing it out, Aaryn lied her ass off and told Amanda that Helen had come to her sobbing and begging Aaryn to consider backdooring Amanda.  She then told her that Andy had been on board for the plan, but that it may have just been for show.  She also told Amanda that Andy had told her she and McCrae were gunning for GinaMarie, so Amanda had Andy summoned to the HOH room so she could confront him in front of Aaryn.  Aaryn pretty much fed Andy his lines of "you were just playing along for the sake of Helen, right?  Were you up here when she came crying to me with this plan?" etc..  Amanda bought it and eventually went back downstairs to talk with Spencer.  Andy remained in the HOH to ask Aaryn if she was still considering backdooring Amanda.  She said no, she was back on the plan to put Spencer up.  Aaryn told him that Helen was going to die now when she puts Spencer up in the morning.

Andy went downstairs and talked with Amanda and told her that he had stopped Aaryn from backdooring her, but that she needed to start keeping her mouth shut more because it was close.  As of now there is a game of "wait each other out" going on in the HOH room.  Helen is listening to the CD and waiting to be the last person in Aaryn's ear, while McCrae and Spencer sit around and talk with Aaryn making sure that Helen can't talk to her before she goes to bed.

Either way, even if Helen talks to Aaryn, I don't think it will make a difference.  I think we are back where we started at the beginning of the night with Spencer going up and Helen going home.  The only things that have changed are that Helen now knows she is going if Spencer goes up, and most of Aaryn's alliance doesn't trust her now.  I feel like if Aaryn had actually put Amanda up, she may have actually been able to secure the votes, but by just threatening to put her up and not actually following through, she now has Amanda, McCrae, Andy, Elissa, and Spencer possibly gunning for her this coming week.  Then again, someone is coming back from the jury and could potentially become public enemy number one...especially if Helen just bounces right back in.

I do not expect Aaryn's mind to be changed and I am certain that Spencer will be on the block by this afternoon.  I think this will be his 5th time, but don't quote me on that..it might actually be his 6th.  Unless anything super drastic happens, that's pretty much it for tonight. As always you all can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...
