Countdown to Meltdown

Amanda and McCrae are going on the chopping block soon and they don't even know it's coming.

This afternoon (Friday), Spencer and Andy have been feigning annoyance to Amanda about GinaMarie not being willing to talk with them ... and talking down about Elissa to stay in Amanda's good graces.

Amanda & McCrae mope. GinaMarie preps for her second HOH nomination ceremony.GinaMarie and Elissa have been plotting what could or should happen if the surviving half of McCranda doesn't win the next HOH comp -- while Amanda worries from downstairs what they're talking about.

Of the remaining four players (not counting McCrae), I've been wondering who Amanda could turn to for comfort or potential allegiance in the aftermath of the nominations.

Andy tried to come in while Elissa was talking with GM -- and Elissa asked him to wait outside.Not Judd. Amanda arranged his first eviction and wasn't cheery about his return. And she wants GM to put him up with Elissa.

Not Elissa, who Amanda targetted with her yelling and horn-blowing only days ago and who holds onto remnants of last week's HOH power.

Not Spencer. I could be forgetting (it's still difficult for a newbie to remember who allied with whom over all these weeks) ... but I don't seem to remember Amanda and Spencer having any particular closeness.

Andy? As one of the members of their 3AM alliance, possibly. But Amanda doesn't know that he is conspiring with GinaMarie and the others to get her out.

Friday, 3:05p: "If you put up Elissa and Judd, I will voluntarily go up as a pawn," says Amanda to GM.One thing is certain: The live feeds are going to be very fun to watch after the nomination ceremony tonight!

How big of a meltdown will Amanda have? Is there anything she could say to sway votes her way? Share your thoughts here or @uselesstraffic.

The Night Owl

GinaMarie is the new HOH!! But that almost seems inconsequential compared to everything else that has happened since then.  When the feeds came back after the HOH comp tonight Amanda was already in GinaMarie's ear telling her that she just HAS to put up Elissa and Judd.  GinaMarie did a good job of skirting her demands though and pretended to go along with her to an extent, but gave us plenty of eye rolls and other expressions into the camera when Amanda was not looking. 

Shortly after GinaMarie got away from Amanda, the Exterminator alliance celebrated in the storage room since they are now able to go through with their plan of keeping themselves safe this week and putting up Amanda and McCrae together.  After their small celebration it was time for Judd and Spencer to get their chicken costumes they won for being last in the HOH competition.

After the chicken costumes were revealed, GinaMarie was called to the DR to have her diary room session before the reveal of her HOH room.  While she was in there, all hell broke loose again between Elissa and Amanda.  Amanda technically started it this time by going into the house and calling Elissa a liar and basically following her around jabbing at her for various reasons.  I think this was mostly spawned because Amanda was so angry about Elissa's answer to Julie's question about their fight on the live show.  It didn't matter that Amanda started it though, Elissa gave as good as she got for the most part.  For the ENTIRE night, each time those 2 were anywhere near each other it turned into a poke and jab fest.  Elissa would talk about how much she "misses Aaryn" just to get Amanda riled up, and Amanda would go after Elissa being a mom blah blah blah...  There really isn't any point in me giving specifics of what they said when and where because we have all seen every comment over and over again this past week.

Meanwhile everyone else just tried to stay out of it and tried to avoid taking a side when Elissa or Amanda would come to them expecting them to side with them.  That is of course with the exception of McCrae who was on Amanda's side.  He did do a good bit of yelling at her to try to shut her up tonight though.  Judd and Andy had a discussion about how Amanda is driving them up the wall with antagonizing Elissa and then playing the victim and crying about it, but they both agreed that McCrae is probably the bigger threat and the one that will likely need to go this week if he doesn't win veto.

After the first real round of low blows, it was time for GinaMarie to get her HOH room.  She got pictures of Nick, a letter from her mom and step dad, and the usual goodies in her HOH basket.  Most everyone was happy for GM except for Amanda and Elissa who were too busy taking shots at each other, and then the stand off began.  Everywhere GinaMarie would go, Elissa would be 2 feet behind her, and 2 feet behind HER would be Amanda.  They eventually ended up in one of the most awkward HOH wait out fests I've ever seen.

For the record, neither Amanda nor Elissa won the wait it out contest. GinaMarie decided to leave the HOH first and go downstairs and while Elissa went to bed and Amanda was busy crying to McCrae outside about how Elissa "bullies" her and how tortured she is and how Elissa tortured Aaryn and how it's not fair, Judd, Andy, and Spencer made their way up to the HOH room with GinaMarie to have a small exterminators meeting and make sure they were all on the same page.

GinaMarie told them she was definitely putting up Amanda and McCrae, and they all agreed that they would like to get McCrae out this week if possible since he is the stronger competitor of the two.  There is also the fact that Amanda would really go off the deep end and just be a flailing loose cannon who probably would not be able to play very well if McCrae walks out the door.  They also all suspect a double eviction is coming this week, so they think even worse case scenario for them is Amanda or Elissa getting HOH, but they would still likely put each other on the block next to one of the Exterminators, and they can just vote out either Amanda or Elissa depending on which one is on the block.  They also all agree they will do whatever it takes to win veto to keep McCrae from coming down and keep GinaMarie from having to nominate Elissa and piss her off. 

While the meeting went on upstairs, Amanda sat downstairs still crying and bitching to McCrae about Elissa.  She really seems to have no idea whatsoever at this point that she and McCrae are going on the block.  Kudos to GinaMarie for her poker face, because Amanda truly believes that Elissa and Judd are going up.

After a while GinaMarie came outside and spoke with Amanda, McCrae and Andy.  Amanda tried to make a fake final 4 deal with them, and GinaMarie played it off as if she bought it.  Amanda then started asking again about who would be going up next to Elissa.  She wants Judd, but said that between Judd and Spencer she does not care which one goes up as long as it's Elissa.  GinaMarie played it off again and told them not to worry, that she sees what Elissa is doing by following her around etc..  And she isn't going to listen to her.

Everyone is kind of winding down and going to bed now.  I don't see anything else big happening tonight.  I personally am really excited about this week.  I think tomorrow's nominations are going to be a total blindside (possibly a first for this year) because Amanda and McCrae don't seem to have any idea at all that GinaMarie might put them up together, and they certainly have no idea that Spencer, Judd, Andy, and GM are working together.  There should be plenty of fireworks when they go up.  I'm excited for Judd that he has managed another week of safety provided he makes it through the double eviction this coming Thursday (and I think he has a good shot this time).  I'm happy about Andy's game and the way it is going.  He is breaking away from Amanda and McCrae at the perfect time for him.  They helped him get pretty far while he helped them also up to this point, but now he knows he has to play against people who are not coupled up and powerful, and he is easing into his new alliance very well.  I know people hate Andy for playing both sides, and I constantly get the "Andy is a rat and a snake and a floater" comments on twitter, but I feel that he is playing well and right now I am enjoying him.

I'm hoping GinaMarie tops her last nomination speech this week.  Her HOH's are always a little comical to me as she really is a cartoon parody of herself.  So here's to some great fireworks tomorrow afternoon when nominations happen.  Fire up your feeds and don't make any plans to go out or you might miss it.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

Anybody Who Isn't McCranda

GinaMarie remains mean-spirited and disturbing. But she won HOH again on Thursday evening ... and if she puts Amanda and McCrae on the block, GinaMarie will have earned some respect back from me.

Amanda certainly wasted no time trying to fill GM's head with final four promises, lies of her certainty that Judd had been MVP, and her fervent desire for Elissa and Judd to be nominated for eviction.

Thursday, August 29, 2013, 8:57 PM: Mark this time, #BB15 fans! Is it genuinely the beginning of the end of McCranda?

My personal hope was for anybody who isn't McCrae or Amanda to win HOH, but I was probably wishing for GM be least likely to get the room key. Would she be strong enough to make one of the biggest moves of the season, or would she fear retaliation?

On the other hand, they've done the math: There are only so many weeks left, and during their conversation GM and Amanda talked about how two people are likely to leave next week. (They're right: Julie told viewers #BB15's second double-eviction happens next Thursday night.) Does the coming double affect GM's game play for the week? 

Accidental opposites: GM is blonde & wearing pink over black. Amanda is brunette & wearing black over pink.

GM ... Did you really do it? Did you successfully play Amanda? Does she really believe you're gonna do what she wants you to?

For the moment, it looks like she did! The moment she left the room, GM started silently taunting Amanda. And minutes later, GM talked with Andy about nominating McCranda.

We'll see exactly how impressionable GM lets herself be as everybody kisses her ring on Friday ... and then whether she has the guts to go through with nominating Amanda and McCrae later Friday. The other house guests seem to want it.

So now I'm rooting for somebody I don't like at all. That too is part of the game.

Will GM do it? Can Amanda win POV again to save herself? And then who's gonna be the double evictee next week? Let our games begin in the comments or @uselesstraffic.

The Night Owl

The veto ceremony took place today and as expected, Andy was put up on the block after Amanda pulled McCrae down.  Apparently there were some fireworks during the veto ceremony. Amanda used a Rachel line "No one comes between me and my man." *gags*  Elissa then told her something to the effect of "My sister would be ashamed that her words are coming out of your mouth."   Then Amanda said "sit down trash bag."  or something like that.  I'm sure we will see an edited version of it on the Weds show.

After the feeds returned, Amanda and McCrae followed through with the plan to tell Judd that the plan had always been to keep Andy.  Andy played dumb as if he did not know about it, and Judd struck a one week deal (that he later said he did not intend to keep) to not put up McCrae and Amanda if they would give him the same one week safety.   Amanda half heartedly continued to harass Elissa for a little while, but then ultimately gave up and went to bed for a good portion of the day. It's never so pleasant on the feeds as when The Beast is sleeping.

Aaryn at first gave up and told everyone she knew what was going on and she was just going to go out happy, but not more than an hour later she was spreading lies and bullshit as usual and trying to turn Amanda and McCrae on Spencer and Judd, Trying to turn Elissa on everyone, trying to turn GinaMarie on Amanda and McCrae etc.. and so on.   The only one who remotely believed her was of course Amanda who ate up everything Aaryn said about Judd. This means nothing though as she is still not voting Andy out of course.

While Amanda was sleeping, McCrae and Elissa got into a somewhat heated discussion about what was bothering them about each other.  They each had some good points and also some stupid ones.  The end result was basically them being more cordial to each other than before.

At some point during all of this Spencer and Andy made it into the cockpit to talk about how excited they are about their new alliance they formed last night.  For those that don't know, Andy, Judd, Spencer, and GinaMarie formed "The Exterminators" in the wee hours of the morning right after my last blog was posted.  The real question of course is where does Andy and Spencer's loyalty lie.  During this conversation they talked about wanting to go with The Exterminators more than Amanda and McCrae at this point.  They both agreed that Amanda has got to go.  Their plan as of now is to wait and see who gets HOH, and if it's Judd or GinaMarie, help them evict Amanda or McCrae.  If it's McCrae or Amanda, they will wait to see which one of their alliance (most likely Judd) is put up beside Elissa, and they will just vote out Elissa instead.  If either of them (Andy or Spencer) gets it, they will put up Amanda and McCrae with Amanda to go because they both feel like this would be a REALLY big move to have on your final 2 resume. Whether any of this will happen or not, I don't know. It's just what they are saying for now, and to be honest, it makes me SO happy that people are at least talking about getting out Amanda this coming week. More people than just Judd and GinaMarie I mean.

After McCrae talked to Elissa, he went and woke up Amanda to tell her all about their conversation.  Amanda got really mad that he was talking to/being nice to Elissa.  Then she cried of course.  Then she went on a rant about how she isn't playing a social game and just plans to win everything from here on out and that's how she will win the game with McCrae.  I literally laughed out loud at some of the stuff she was saying while crying.

None of this anger lasted that long though as Amanda and Elissa ended up making dinner together, and then much later in the night after some wine they hashed everything out and made theri respective apologies.  I don't think Elissa bought any of it...as she shouldn't, and I doubt Amanda bought any of it either, but there it is.  They said it...oh and Amanda cried.

Outside of all that, most of the night was spent listening to Aaryn campaign to no avail, and just having general chit chat.  Some played pool and some plucked their eyebrows.  Some hung out by the hot tub.  GinaMarie re-did her hair extensions...you get the idea.  It was pretty quiet.

As of now Andy is staying and Aaryn is going home.  I don't really see that changing.  Judd, Spencer, and GinaMarie seem completely solid in their new alliance, and I doubt Amanda or McCrae will try to flip it to keep Aaryn now that Aaryn is trying to turn the house against them and they know it.  Now we just have to wait until Thursday and hope someone gets a bug up their ass and causes some fireworks before then.  I think "Hurricane Poopie" (Aaryn) might have it in her, but we will just have to wait and see.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...
