Conspiracies, theories, facts, fiction.....

Here is a LONG post I've been adding to over the last several weeks.  First some things about this season of Big Brother and then more general information about the ways production can influence the HGs or the game.

I started this a right before Amanda’s eviction so take that into account (yes it took me ages to write this).

Show connections, casting, recruiting:

Amanda is not 'friends' with Alison Grodner (BB Executive Producer) and was not 'recruited' to be on Big Brother.  I heard (via the twitter grapevine) that during the baseball HoH competition Amanda said she knew one of the 'production' people that was throwing the balls at them. Amanda DID previously work in LA so its possible she saw someone she knew from her past life when she was trying to become a star.  Amanda was not 'pre-destined' to win Big Brother 15 (As we saw she was evicted and not because the 'secret' plot was posted on facebook 2 months ago).

On the other hand, Elissa IS at the very least acquainted with Alison Grodner and was recruited to be on Big Brother by CBS.

With the exception of Kaitlin who said she was approached to apply while bartending - the other HGs seemed to have all applied.  Aaryn's agency may have applied on her behalf or encouraged her to apply but you get my point, the only members that were 'cast' for this season were Elissa and Kaitlin and they were two very different situations. Helen also was not 'cast' but that goes in a different conspiracy (mini update - someone tells me Candice has said she was sort of recruited - so toss her into the mix as well).

Helen was not a CBS plant and did NOT 'throw' the HoH competition where she fell off the platform. Why she would quit the game right when she had a chance to get back in is beyond reason to me. How much could CBS have paid her to give up a shot at $500k? And I come to that conclusion without even watching the "live" video (and not the 5 second copy floating around) - its very obvious she simply lost her balance and jumped off. GO back – watch the last 2-3 minutes before she fell – you could see how she was struggling.  No pushing or 'tapping.'  Candice also lost her balance and fell off just a few moments later.

Money: Yes the HGs are PAID for their time on Big Brother.  The Hgs last season and this season have implied they now get about $1,000 a week while in sequester, the BB house, and Jury House (the number $13,000 has been tossed around a lot by the HGs when talking - BB is about 13 weeks).  In the previous seasons the number was always said to be about $750 per week. Alumni are believed to GET MORE. I think the 'coaches' last season had separate contracts with as the very least a guaranteed minimum they would get to come back on the show.  I also believe Elissa is being paid much more than the other HGs this season because of her connection with her sister Rachel.


Who’s actually been fired?

As of this writing, 9/16/2013, the only two CONFIRMED people that have lost their jobs are Aaryn and GinaMarie.  Keep in mind that Aaryn was simply dropped by her agency – she considers herself a college student.  GinaMarie’s job couldn’t have been that much of a full time gig since she was able to take off the entire summer.    Actually EVERY house guest this season was not fully employed (Spencer being the one exception) – they all were part timers or between jobs.

Rumored job losses are just that – false rumors.   

Spencer has not lost his job, he took a leave of absence before starting Big Brother – I believe he is off until the beginning or end of October – they can’t ‘fire’ him – I don’t think he will lose his job no matter what but nothing will happen either way until he is back on the job.   He is a union member and you can be sure that they will work their tails off to keep him from losing his job and that is if the company even feels it has a reason to fire him (again, I don’t think he is in any danger of losing his job).

Andy is listed on the show as a “College Professor” but that is a HUGE stretch (one made by CBS in my opinion and not Andy). In reality Andy has done stints with a SMALL college in the Chicago area (a two-year community college) as a “Part Time” instructor.  Folks that means he may have his Masters degree at best and they paid him to teach one or two classes a semester.   He said in the house that he couldn’t go back to that job if he was still in the house after a certain point.  The college put out a statement saying he is not employed by them BECAUSE HE ISN’T – not because he was ‘fired.’  Huge difference.

Amanda’s name has also been tossed out as having lost her job.  Amanda’s most recent occupation before Big Brother was / is as a Realtor.  Having done this type of work for a couple of years myself I can tell you that it’s not a job you can be fired from.  You are your OWN boss.  At best you work for a broker but you are paid on commission only and if a broker were to drop you, you could just walk down the street to another broker and sign up with them.

These are all rumors stirred up by people looking to generate traffic to their websites.  Go to trusted sources only for your info.

And now some more general Big Brother stuff about competitions and such…

 

Certain competitions favor certain Hgs:

Production CAN, to some extent, control the 'game' if they choose to (I'm not saying they always do - but sometimes we sure wonder).  CBS does EXTENSIVE 'testing' of applicants - they know each one's strengths and weaknesses. 

Hanging competitions WILL favor lighter & smaller framed Hgs (same goes on Survivor - see who lasts the longest when they hang over water - 90% of the time its the small women). Yes McCrae won the first competition that involved hanging but he also said later he has the body of a woman (yes he said that).

If a certain Hgs is good at memorizing, then perhaps production would choose a important week for that HG to give the house a competition involving memorization. Example? BB14 Ian claimed to have a photographic memory and won a critical competition near the end of his season that required a good memory (As a side note BB15 Jeremy said he had a "photoshop" memory - poor guy).

Ask Brendon about competitions that favor people with SMALL feet (standing on a ledge?).  Balance can also play a huge factor. I said it on the night of the baseball competition this season that Elissa had a HUGE advantage with her yoga background as she was able to grab balls and maintain her balance while others struggled to do both.

Comps that involve cold/wet conditions may favor HGs with more 'body fat' because they won't lose their body temperature as quickly.

Drugs? Its hard to argue about the talk in the house this season of certain HGs being on ADD meds or Xanax and that it might help or hurt them in competitions depending on when they were given. Some HGs feel that certain comps were slated to take place when these HGs were at their 'best' from the meds they happen to be on (Aaryn, Amanda and Judd all are taking medications - others might be as well). I for one doubt it gave any 'advantage' but at best evened the playing field.

Production giving certain ‘lanes’ an advantage?  In theory the way the Hgs line up for competitions is done by a ‘random’ draw – but we never see the draw so we can only guess how that works (if any former HG wants to chime in and tell me they think its always legit – please do!).  What we do know is there have been several times in the recent years where things have seemed to be set up to ‘help’ a favorite to win that POV or HoH when it was needed.  Two quick examples would be:

1: The ‘clown shoe’ competition (BB13) that Jeff lost because he accidently tossed out a clown shoe that was seemed  very close to the top of the ‘bouncy balls’ he had to dig though.  Had he seen it he would have beaten Porsche by a huge margin and would have stayed in the game (so this is viewed by many as a attempt to influence the game that failed).

2: The reward/penalty POV competition this season where Elissa got the most points and won the POV when she needed it most.  After the competition the HGs commented on how all the high numbers were on one side of the ‘mud pit’ – the side that Elissa was on.  As a matter of facet the top three places were from one side of the mud pit.  Once has to wonder how Elissa, who would most likely have been voted out had she not won, was selected for that lane – or were the numbers places in the pit AFTER lane selection?

 

Power of Veto Selection:

The Power of Veto was introduced in BB3.  It has gone through several changes.  It was introduced as a way to give the nominations a chance to be changed up.  Originally everyone played – then the number was limited. In Big Brother 5, Nakomis came up with the plan to “backdoor” Jase by not nominating him and NOT letting him play for the POV.  This eventually led to the addition of the “Wheel” to select players which only lasted 2 episodes during Big Brother 7.  They then moved to the ‘bag’ that names were drawn from.    This bag has raised all kinds of questions and theories.  Most of the time the HGs are NOT allowed to dump out the bag after selecting names to verify all names are there (yes they did dump it out at least once last season).   We just have no way to know for sure that the current name selection process to play for POV is legit.

 

Coup d’Etat, Pandora’s Box:

Because there is no rhyme or reason to when the things happen, most hard core fans agree the Coup d'Etat & Pandora's Box are only vehicles used by production to help certain players (or just for entertainment value when no special powers are awarded with Pandora). 

The  Coup d’etat, where the holder gets to whipe out current nominations and make his/her own at a moment’s notice, has only been awarded twice – the first time Mike Boogey won it and didn’t use it (since his alliance was in power those two weeks) – the second time Jeff won it and used it to save himself (we felt it was used that season for this very reason - to keep Jeff in the game). 

Pandora’s box is often just sillyness – but since there is no set rules on what the award / penalty is – or if it’s just a ‘for fun’ thing – production can announce it ahead of time and change how it is presented depending on who is the HoH at the time – thus having the chance to majorly influence the game. 

 

Diary Room ‘Influence’

Every season we hear the Hgs talk about the “DR” wanting things – or not wanting things.  I’ve always felt that the Diary Room is where production can work on the HGs mindsets and, by asking certain questions, get them to think in certain ways.  They can also brow beat a houseguest into thinking about nominating or not nominating someone by presenting may many alternative options while asking those leading questions.   I’ve talked about this one enough in previous seasons and actually this year I didn’t feel it happened as much – except perhaps when we thought Howard was going to get nominated by MVP Elissa and instead she put up Spencer.  Helen, Elissa and others all felt like the DR was pushing very hard to NOT have Howard go up that week (and he didn’t).

And there you have it.  A HUGE post about loads of rumors, gossip, speculation and a few facts tossed in for fun.  I may or may not post again this season but in case I don’t – thanks for sticking with us or finding us this year.  Assuming there is a Big Brother 16 we will be back reporting all over again.  And yes we will probably have some ‘favorites’ but in the end I probably won’t care who wins – just like I don’t care who wins this season.

Double Eviction #2 Episode Guide

Double your (dis)pleasure? Amanda and Elissa, the most hated, loved, and/or controversial remaining house guests (each of you likely attaches varying labels to each), might both be leaving tonight.

Here's how things might happen during #BB15's second double eviction episode:

- Recaps.

- The eviction ceremony. GinaMarie, who happened to be HOH back when we headed into #BB15's previous double (putting Candice and Jessie on the block that week), nominated showmance power couple Amanda and McCrae for tonight's eviction in perhaps the biggest move of the season. (Like her as a person or not, and I certainly don't, I give her propz for doing what the previous two HOHs wouldn't.) McCrae won veto to save himself, and GM replaced him with Spencer as a pawn. Despite recent buddying with Elissa and the usual fake assurances from Andy, Amanda should be on her way to the jury house. If there's a 2-2 tie in the voting, GM will evict Amanda.

- Julie interviews the evicted house guest.

Amanda (top left) still thinks she's safe, but GinaMarie (top right) as HOH has conspired to keep her in the dark. Andy & Judd (bottom left) will probably be safe in tonight's double. Elissa must win HOH or POV.- New HOH competition. (As outgoing HOH, GinaMarie must sit this one out.)

- Nomination ceremony of two HGs by the new HOH. If Elissa or McCrae win HOH, she or he will likely nominate the other (plus one of "The Exterminators" alliance: Judd, GinaMarie, Spencer, or Andy).  If neither win HOH, Elissa and McCrae might both go on the block.

- POV competition. We think winning veto will be essential to either Elissa or McCrae.

- POV ceremony. One nominee comes off the block and another one goes up.

- Eviction ceremony #2. If Elissa is still up, current thinking is that she'll be on the way to the jury house.

- Julie interviews the double-evictee.

Next from the Newbie Desk: The next HOH competition might begin before or after tonight's live episode ends -- and it's likely to be a shorter-than-usual reign for this head of household. I'll tell you why in my next post.

Amanda's a goner for sure, but do you agree Elissa is the next most likely to go? If Elissa or McCrae wins HOH, which Exterminator(s) will s/he nominate? Share your thoughts in the comments or tweet @uselesstraffic.

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 30 Recap

Do you have your earplugs within reach? I have a feeling you’ll need them, as the last episode’s concluding scene of Amanda and McCrae’s nominations is destined to create a rising crescendo of noise. When one of these two are not screaming, the sniffling and tears are bound to be just as annoying. Not to mention the godawful backslapping by that ignoramus who nominated the pair.

Let’s jump right in. What exactly does everybody think of these nominations? You can probably guess. GinaMarie is pretty proud of herself for putting up the “power duo that is about to get destroyed”. A tearful Amanda admits that she “was completely blindsided by this one”. She goes on to say that a showmance has never made it to the end together. “I wanted to be the first.” (Well, there’s a reason for that.) McCrae says that Amanda is important to him and his game, and that everything “was going too good” until this happened.

Elissa is then shown hugging GinaMarie and telling her it was an “awesome move”. In the diary room, she boasts “finally, the days of McCranda are coming to an end”. She’s then shown telling GinaMarie she “made the best move ever”.

McCrae heads into the bedroom, where Amanda is already in bed. She has (finally) figured out that everybody else in the house was involved in the blindside. “It was not just Judd and Elissa behind it.” She says in the diary room that while she “was upset for a few minutes, now I’m pissed! And crazy! And confused!” Oh boy. We know what’s coming.

We hear for the first time on the episode (but the zillionth time on the feeds) that it “doesn’t make sense” to not put up Elissa. Yep, they’re all involved, and Amanda gets up to confront everybody. She heads into the cockpit and confronts Andy and Spencer. “Why me?” asks Spencer, who honestly doesn’t play dumb very well. Well, he plays dumb well, but not a dumb liar.

It works well enough, I guess, and Amanda continues to say it doesn’t make sense. Andy, who has been called a rat for the last couple of weeks, says in the diary room that his goal for the week is to make it seem like he had nothing to do with this. Yep, he’s a rat. (Not really. I just wanted to join the club.)

Amanda finally heads out of the room to go confront GinaMarie, who is in the HOH. She points out that Elissa has sent out both Nick and Aaryn, and that they’d never been targeting her. GinaMarie claims that they turned their back on Aaryn, and that Elissa had tried to get Amanda out the previous week.

Hearing the noise from upstairs, Judd heads into the cockpit to report what’s going on. Obviously, Spencer wants nothing to do with this situation, but Andy agrees to go upstairs with Judd. Upstairs, Amanda is still yelling at GinaMarie that by putting Elissa up she would have had no targets on herself.

The two boys walk in as GinaMarie explains that she had to break up the duo. “I can’t believe you’d listen to Elissa”, counters Amanda. “You listened to a girl who is crazy.” GInaMarie claims that Elissa had nothing to do with the nominations. “You just fucked yourself”, cries Amanda as she walks out. “If Andy or Spencer or a whole bunch of people win the veto, they’ll take us off the block.” Well, no they won’t.

Judd then speaks up. “So y’all just run the game, basically. Should we all just pack our bags?” Amanda then walks out the door after saying she never said that, and Judd follows. “There’s other people in this house”, she responds to Judd’s rant about him going up. They all start screaming at each other, while Elissa cooks some dinner and McCrae reads the Bible.

When GinaMarie points out that she still has the chance to win the veto, Amanda begins crying again and says she doesn’t want to be in the house anymore. “I want to go home now. I can’t be with these people.” Judd replies, “love you, too”.

Amanda heads into the have-not room, and McCrae joins her. We hear more of how she doesn’t want to be there anymore, and even more of the usual “why not Elissa” rants. She advises McCrae to not trust Spencer or Judd. “She wouldn’t put us up if she didn’t have the votes.” The sad piano music then comes up, and we get some teary diary room junk. They both tell each how they love each other.

After commercials, Elissa is jogging around the house, and Amanda is talking to Andy in the storage room. Andy tells her to be “calm and collected, and just win the veto”. Amanda says she wants to go home, and Andy tells her to knock it off. Again in the diary room, we have to hear about how tough this is for Andy. Elissa then stops to listen to them through the door as Andy tells her to “not let (Elissa) get to her”. Elissa now thinks he’s more loyal to Amanda then her.

Spencer then walks up to Elissa, who tells him to be quiet. He knows that this could be trouble, so he then enters. Andy asks if Elissa was listening, and he admits she was. Amanda slams the door open, and goes in to report to McCrae. When she jogs past, she makes a snide comment about her listening in on her.

Now fired up, Amanda claims that if either of them win veto, she’s going to make sure that Elissa goes up and goes home. Well, that’s not happening. In bed, she tells McCrae that she thinsk America is going to love that she hassled Elissa so much last week. Some of us did, my dear, but not Helen’s “America”.

It’s now time to pick veto players. Basically, everybody but one person is playing, so to make it easier that one person ends up being Judd. Andy’s not happy, because that means the rat may be exposed. Elissa does say in the diary room that she’s getting even more paranoid about Andy’s loyalties.

We then see Amanda heading up to the HOH to tell Andy that she picked Spencer over him because she didn’t want to put him in a bad spot. Spencer also walks in, and they all say they’re going to fight hard for the veto. When Amanda walks out, the two guys giggle on how even if they win they’re not going to use the veto.

Elissa is now whispering to Judd that she doesn’t trust Andy. “I just feel, like, he’s working with both sides of the house.” Andy then pops in, and Elissa says she is going to go take a nap. Judd then informs him of what Elissa just said, so his paranoia goes way, way up. “It is crucial that Elissa is not suspicious of me, as I don’t want to be Elissa’s target.”

He then runs upstairs to inform GinaMarie, who explains it was because of Amanda’s expression after he was picked to play veto. Andy says there’s no way he’ll take either of them down. Spencer then walks in, and we have dumb chatter about alliances. Yes, you three dummies are so powerful. Judd joins them, and they all giggle about how great they are as “exterminators”. Seriously, this is beyond idiotic.

It’s now veto comp time, and they’re all dressed as ballerinas. But there’s also a bowling alley. It’s a knockout type game, and they have to knock out their bowling pins, They do this after spinning around fifteen times, though.

The first round is Amanda versus Elissa, and we hear some silliness about “bullying” (god, I hate that word) before Amanda beats her. The rest of the competitors then decide to just pick Amanda for every round, and Andy does just that. Amanda wins again.

GinaMarie is up next, and she also picks an exhausted Amanda. Guess who wins? Yes, Amanda. McCrae is the next competitor, but he picks Spencer. And wins.

This means that it is now Amanda versus McCrae, and neither are pleased. “It feels like bringing Old Yeller out to the field, and I have to put her down”, says McCrae. Wait, what? We have to wait through a round of commercials before we get to see the epic battle, and when we return Amanda says that McCrae is now “my worst enemy, and he mine”. They’re both working hard, but McCrae has a slight lead early on. They both have to go back to spin, and Amanda then ties it up. She then goes up by one pin, and they’re tied as they now have to spin again. The first one to knock a pin will now win, and McCrae narrowly (and I mean narrowly) gets that fourth pin...and then pukes. He takes his medal, but is upset because he says “she’s a much better player”. Both of them have teary diary room comments before we head to commercials.

When we return, they’re embracing in the bathroom. She congratulates him, and says “my game is over”. Upstairs, the rest of the house is talking about who has to “sit and look pretty” next to Amanda. Elissa’s name is mentioned, but GinaMarie says she can’t do that. If you watched on the feeds, you know who volunteered to go up, but that would ruin this next, concluding segment.

McCrae is now staring at the wall of pictures, and claims that he’s actually thinking about saving Amanda instead of him. Well, that’s silly. Amanda adds that GInaMarie should not even be in the game, and that “she has too much of a power for way too small of a mind”.

More people babble before McCrae brings them all into the house for the inevitable use of the veto to save himself. Oh wait, he gives Amanda the opportunity to plead her case, and she stands and talks about how hard they fought for the veto. “I kicked everyone’s ass who challenged me. But if I were to lose to one person by one pin in one second, I’m glad that that one person was you. So I would never ask, nor expect, nor want you to use the veto on me.”

She sits down, and McCrae does use it on himself. “I’m sorry.” GinaMarie then stands and nominates Spencer to go up because “he does one heck of a chicken dance”.

McCrae then kicks the veto box shut, and says that he thinks he let Amanda down. “I have a lot of regrets.” Amanda adds that she thinks that GInaMarie is jealous of her, and Spencer jokes that he is proud of being the most nominated house guest of all time.

Well, that’s it for tonight. While I had little hope for tonight’s show, I felt that it was actually put together well. Even the veto competition material was pretty stunning. What do you think? Are you happy that Amanda is going tomorrow? Or that the rat has been exposed? Tell me! I want to know!

The Night Owl

Well, GinaMarie did it.  Amanda and McCrae were put up on the block together today and the aftermath went just about the way most of us expected it to go.  First Amanda and McCrae ran to their bed to go talk about whose fault it was (Judd and Elissa of course) then Amanda marched to the HOH room.  Upon arriving in the HOH room, Amanda yelled at GinaMarie and told her that they were never coming after her and genuinely wanted to take her to the final four.  Amanda told her over and over and over and over that it didn't make sense to put the two of them up together.  GinaMarie kept her cool and told Amanda that it DID in fact make sense.  She told her they were a power duo and a couple. Two people playing the game together.  She told her she felt that this would make it a more even playing field to separate the two of them so they are not playing for each other. Amanda then told GinaMarie "You just fucked your own game.  You just fucked up! if Spencer or Andy win veto they will take one of us off the block and then whoever the replacement nominee is will go home!"  That sparked a fire in Judd who spoke up and said "So I guess we should all just pack our bags then and push you both to the end?"  Amanda hurled a few more insults and then ran downstairs to the have not room to cry and tell McCrae how she doesn't even want to be there anymore and how she can't live with these people.  She just wants to leave now!  She can't stand the idea of being apart from him (for two weeks).  etc.. etc... etc..

There was some more time spent in bed and then Amanda went off to find Andy in the storage room who she still believes is on her side and will take her off the block if he winse veto.  She started crying and talking about Elissa saying she couldn't stand to spend another week in the house with her "joker face" etc..  and Andy mosty just said "yeah, but don't give her what she wants.  Just try to squash it."  While they were talking, Elissa listened outside the door until Amanda got wise to her listening and tried to bust the door open on her.

Most of the rest of Amanda and McCrae's night was spent not saying anything other than comforting words to each other in their bed.  There was also a lot of laying in silence.  The only thing they did outside of that was go to the bathroom once, eat once, and Amanda went up to the HOH room crying and apologized to Judd, Elissa, Spencer, and GinaMarie saying she knows she is leaving and she loves all of them.  She asked them not to blame her actions on McCrae who so wants to be there.  The two of them still have no idea that McCrae is the target. They just assume that Amanda is the one going home...but really, they just laid in bed all night for the most part.  I was starting to think mirrors  might be needed to check for breath, but in the wee hours of the morning they popped up for a short but relatively normal chat/joke talk with Spencer, Andy, and Judd.

After the storage room event, Andy started to get really spooked about the idea of Elissa sending him out of the house after she started needling him about what he said to Amanda and why.  She acted suspicious and Andy talked to Spencer about it a while later.  He and Spencer agreed that if one of them got HOH they might need to put Elissa up next to one of their own alliance so they could get rid of her first and then just deal with Amanda next.  I'm not sure if Andy is still on that same page though as after some booze later on in the night, he and Elissa had a really long heart to heart and agreed that they totally trust each other.  I am sure he still wants her out, but I'm not sure if he wants her gone next or if his fears were eased.

While McCrae and Amanda laid in bed together, the other HGs drank, played Jenga, ate dinner, and cut up with each other.  They started calling Judd the "Slutty Chicken" because his chicken costume is now so ripped it won't stay on.  They teased GinaMarie about how broken she is now that her toe is broken along with her hurt back and finger.  And the night for the most part was relatively strategy talk free.

There WAS a little bit of gaming for a while between Spencer, Judd, and Andy in the cockpit.  Most of it was just going over what they already have about doing what they need to do in order to win veto and send McCrae  home, but a few new things popped up here and there. They decided that if McCrae or Amanda does win veto and come off the block, it would be a good idea for Spencer to be the replacement nominee so they can just vote out whichever of the two is left up and not piss Elissa off yet.  That way Elissa stays focused on getting out the other member of McCranda instead of getting mad at all of them for putting her up and coming after two members of The Exterminators.

That's pretty much it as far as the game talk went.  Now it's all up to vet and what happens after that.  Part of me kind of hopes that McCrae wins veto so that Amanda goes home instead, but that is from a personal standpoint as I do like McCrae more than her.  From a strategy point of view, it is better for Judd, GinaMarie, Spencer, and Andy to get rid of McCrae and leave Amanda begging to go to jury right after him.  After seeing the way Amanda acted today about the game and her worries about being on the block, I honestly think she may use the veto on McCrae if she wins it.  She is extremely worried about him going to jury first and being there with Jessie and Aaryn.

Either way, even if neither of them wins it, it should be an interesting day.  If Andy somehow accidentally wins it, he knows he is screwed.  He won't be able to use it because of the current alliance he is loyal to, but that could potentially turn Amanda on him and keep her from going after Elissa.  Anyone else who won will likely just be subjected to bartering by Amanda and McCrae to use it, but likely won't.  We shall just have to see how it plays out.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...
