More Drama on a Tuesday

The last two Tuesday's have been busy in the drama department on the Big Brother Live Feeds

Amanda has been extremely paranoid since she went up for nomination on Saturday and she is convinced that Howard is the MVP and thus nominated her.  Spencer meanwhile has been trying to get the votes together to vote Amanda out and thus keep both Howard and Candice safe.  The problem is that there aren't enough people that want to go against Amanda, McCrae, Helen, etc etc.  Judd and Andy have lied to Spencer though and let him think they might be willing to flip and vote Amanda out.  Because they are mostly loyal to Amanda, she knows that Spencer has been campaigning to get her out.

Today around 12:29 Amanda confronted Spencer and sorta accused him of going after her.  Spencer lied and maintained that he was going after Candice.  After 30 mintues of arguing Amanda pretty much told Spencer that if anyone voted for her to go on Thursday she would be coming after him.  She also implied she wouldn't come after him if no one voted for her.  Problem is there aren't many people left on the 'wrong' side of the house for Amanda to go after.   This is a discussion well worth checking out so if you have the Live Feeds tune in and watch.

A couple hours later Candice, who had heard Spencer said he was voting for her, called a house meeting where she read Spencer the riot act.  She of course had been approached by Spencer with the plan to try to vote out Amanda.  Spencer should have admitted he told her that in front of everyone with the excuse of, "What was I supposed to say to you? I wanted you out?"  But instead he denied he said anything like she accused him of.  After she was done tearing into Spencer, Howard announced he still wanted to 'self evict' - and rambled on and on about how people weren't playing the game the right way and he'd rather just go (and yet he is still in the house... hmmmm).  Its another place to check out - point your player to 3pm to hear Candice bawl Spencer out in front of the entire house.

The last event worth checking out is a bit controversial.  We only see a brief glimpse of Howard whispering to Amanda around 5:10pm on Camera 4 - then the cam cuts away and you have to switch to Cams 1/2 - after Howard walks away Amanda tells Andy and Judd that Howard whispered something to the effect of wanting to hook up with her after the show. All we can go on is Amanda's word for now and I suspect this will never be seen on the CBS show.  Watch it and decide for yourself!

Howard is still on a path to head home on Thursday.  Aaryn is upset because she wants Candice to go and feels she has no control. Of course thats her own fault for keeping her 'deal' with Amanda and Helen to be kept safe and put up people they wanted.

Wash, Rinse, Repeat

The only thing which I didn't want to have happen last Thursday (July 25, 2013, during #BB15 episode 13) is exactly what happened: Aaryn won Head of Household. Again.

This newbie's preference would have been for either of the following:

- For Amanda, Andy, Candice, Elissa, GinaMarie, Howard, Jessie, or Spencer to win ... so that we could see how things would go in the house from an entirely different perspective, since they have not yet served as HOH. For example, I don't think I've heard Jessie say more than about ten words in the many hours I've watched the live feeds since starting around July 17. She doesn't seem to get much air time. McCrae gets air time ... but given how often he sleeps (usually not alone), his part in this show apparently isn't a speaking role.

- For Helen to get HOH again ... because she's my favorite house guest, and I hadn't bought in to #BB15 yet when she served in that role the first time.

The cameras give the most attention to whomever the HOH is and to the noisiest, most controversial, and/or most scheming of the house guests. When they're bothering to focus on talk, that is.

The feeds seem to devote hours to Amanda and McCrae sleeping (or ... not) under the covers during the day. Why don't they let us listen into more conversations? With 12 people there, isn't there pretty much somebody talking somewhere in the house? Their conversations don't have to be about the game to be more interesting than watching people nap (or ... not).

My first exposure to Big Brother -- not just during #BB15, but ever -- was when news of Aaryn's distasteful speech spilled over into mainstream media a few weeks ago, so I didn't exactly leap for joy when she was re-crowned. (Neither did most of the other house guests, if I read them right.) Just when I was getting into the show, it felt like we'd be in only for a summer rerun.

Even a newbie wonders if the producers conspire to give people like Aaryn more air time for spurious reasons. Being attractive can't hurt ratings.

All right, all right -- maybe not Helen again, even though my enthusiasm about her remains high. Not Helen or McCrae or Judd or Aaryn.

Why don't they disqualify previous Heads of Household from HOH competitions? As a newbie, it feels like the advantages to the show of an always-different-HOH would outweigh the disadvantages. Or if they're going to leave it open to everyone, should they make it extra difficult for previous HOHs to win?

How would you change HOH eligibility? Or should they leave it as-is? Comment below or hit me @uselesstraffic.

The Night Owl

Wow, what a day/night.  So, I might as well start by saying Amanda woke up with a bug up her ass about Judd today.  After her fight with McCrae last night involving them deciding that they don't exactly trust Judd, she apparently woke up in the exact same mindset and then things just snowballed and she talked about him ALL. DAY. LONG.

When the feeds came back from trivia after the POV ceremony, Candice was on the block as expected, but to be honest I have only seen Candice maybe twice today and both times she was horizontal and fighting with Howard about something.  Amanda however was front and center on the cameras after the nomination ceremony.  Early in the morning she had spoken with both Judd and Andy separately about the conversation they had with Spencer and Howard the night before.  Andy being the blabbermouth tattletale that he is of course told her every detail he could muster.  Judd told her the basic jist of the conversation. He told her what Howard was pitching and that they had fake aligned but that he was of course still on board to get Howard out.  What he DIDN'T say to Amanda was that they were pitching for him to vote out Amanda and all the reasons they listed for him to do so.

After the veto ceremony Amanda ran to McCrae to tell him that Judd had LIED to her because he didn't tell her all the details that Andy did.  She told him that she was going to chill out and give him the chance to tell her the truth again but that she didn't think he would do it.  McCrae told her to stop talking game and lay low so that she doesn't turn the house on her with her paranoia.  Amanda then ran upstairs and in front of everyone asked Judd to come have a talk with her.  She basically asked him "isn't there anything else you want to tell me about the conversation you had with Howard and Spencer.  Judd told her that he had not wanted her to worry because she was already on the block, but that they HAD in fact pitched reasons for them to vote her to.  He told her it was a stupid deal though and that there was no way he would take it or turn on them.  Then he went to go take a nap.

Amanda took this information and ran to Helen and started crying to her that Judd was flipping the whole house and that he was so against her and trying to rally up votes.  Helen then ran into the HOH room and told Aaryn that they needed to have a meeting NOW because Judd was flipping and not to listen to ANYTHING he had to say.  Amanda ran to GinaMarie to ask her if Judd had tried to flip her yet and she told Amanda that he had done the opposite and told her NOT to flip...but Amanda still said he was flipping.  Somehow they all ended up down in the cockpit together talking about how Judd was supposedly rallying votes to get Amanda out. This is of course stupid and untrue.  Not only is Judd doing NOTHING of the sort, but even if he did it wouldn't matter because no one else in the house has enough brains to take a stab at getting Amanda out of the house.  McCrae and Andy both told Amanda to chill out more and to STOP talking game. Just to have fun and lay low and get zero votes.  Then they both went to take naps as did Spencer.

While all the boys were sleeping, Amanda made her way up to the HOH room (and the HOH bed of course) to talk to Helen, Aaryn, GinaMarie about this whole Judd flipping thing. They bashed Judd for HOURS and talked about how shady he is and how he is a genius who is just trying to play some "innocent farm boy".  They talked about how he is just playing for jury votes and that's why he wants Jessie in the house right now. 

 

Amanda told Helen that he wants her gone because she would be a vote for one of them instead of him.  She told the whole room that he had made up tons of lies about fake alliances and things Kaitlin supposedly said just so he could get her out because she might vote for Andy in jury instead of him.   THEN it really happened.  Amanda decided that Judd was MVP.  At t his point in time, Judd and Spencer had awoken from their naps and were casually chatting on the outside couch about nothing in particular thinking that the rest of the house was asleep.

Amanda, with Helen now very much in on it too, continued talking about the MVP thing with Aaryn.  They decided that Judd had nominated Elissa to throw people off and then nominated GinaMarie because he wanted to nominate her to begin with and also because he knew she would stay and Kaitlin would go.  They decided that this week he had nominated Amanda because he knew that no one would think it was him if he nominated her, but that she wasn't the target at all.  He nominated her to frame Howard because HE was actually the one that wanted Howard out of the hose so badly...not Amanda.  For those of you that have been keeping up, you know that Amanda has not stopped talking abort wanting Howard out for at least 3 weeks now.  There is also the part of this that makes no sense because Amanda keeps saying Judd is rallying votes against her, but also saying he doesn't want her out this week, but he nominated her to get frame Howard and get Howard out.  Go figure...   In any case, Judd and Spencer remained happily oblivious downstairs, while in the HOH the girls chip chomped away at Judd's new fate.

 

 

Eventually people in the house started to wake up and Amanda and Helen pounced right away.  Amanda  grabbed Andy and pulled him into the cockpit to tell him all about how she had figured out that Judd was MVP, an evil genius, playing them all, playing for jury, and trying to get her out (while he was sleeping).  Andy bought it hook line and sinker of course, because this seems to be the Jonestown series of Big Brother.  Whatever Helen and Amanda say is just the way it is and you don't dare question it or think for yourselves, because if you do, you end up like Nick, Howard, Spencer, Candice and possibly Judd at this point.  In other words, you end up either evicted or on the outside looking in while you are on the eviction list.  You just shut up and drink your Koolaid like a good cult member.  While Amanda was telling Andy exactly what to think and how to act, Helen pulled Elissa into the backyard to do the same thing.  This particular conversation was even MORE mind blowing since not only was it about how terrible Judd is, but it was also about how they (including Elissa) really like Aaryn now and think that Candice basically made the whole thing up about the bed flipping since they have now seen how Aaryn "really is" and they really like her.  WHAT PLANET AM I ON RIGHT NOW?!  Again... Drinking the Koolaid.

 

 

All this paranoia swam in circles for a while as people switched places and Amanda talked more to GinaMarie and Jessie, and Helen told Andy everything she thought Amanda had not told him yet.  Amanda had some sort of brief illness from eating Ramen and talked to Judd to make sure he was still solid on keeping her.  He said he was, but that seemed to fuel her paranoia even more.  She said all the pain was keeping her from being able to walk, but somehow she made it up the the HOH bathroom to continue to talk shit about Judd while hunched over.  Meanwhile, McCrae slept...

 

 

eventually when everyone started to wake up it was impossible to have these one on one private conversations as much and so everyone started to mingle and things started to die down and just get boring.  Howard had a really good conversation with GinaMarie in the Hammock.  Spencer had a conversation with her as well, but that one really wasn't that good, and Spencer really has no understanding of how to come across about people he doesn't like in an acceptable fashion, so I won't recount his tale.  Howard told GinaMarie that with Helen and Amanda running the house with McCrae and Elissa at their sides, things were boring, and that if the rest of the people thought they were not going to get picked off in the process they were crazy.  He talked to her about how she knows she is just a vote right now while they decide when they want to send her home and if they want to let her make it to jury.  GinaMarie agreed with him and they talked a bit about Amanda and the fact that she had orchestrated the evictions of most of her allies in the house.  If I had to guess what GM was really thinking by that conversation, I would say that she actually wishes she could vote out Amanda, but knows she doesn't have the numbers or a way to do it.  I AM however wishing that since Judd kept her safe last week, she would tell him what all the girls have been saying about him so that he can decide what to do with it since he is now a target rather than an alliance member. 

 

 

For a little while after this there was a really boring lull where people were either napping, or eating, or just sitting at the hot tub, but we all know when Amanda decides she has a new target, she is like a dog with a bone.  She worked on this Howard thing for 3 weeks before she got her way and now that he is walking out her eyes are set on her new target, so she returned to the HOH bed to talk MORE about Judd with McCrae.

 

 

The conversation really wound up when Andy came in and started feeding the paranoia.  McCrae tried to say once or twice that they didn't know for sure that Judd had flipped, but Amanda and Andy freaked out and told him to "COME ON!! All the signs are there! It's SO obvious!!".  Their proof now is that Judd had a conversation with Andy asking him if he considered what Spencer and Howard were saying about voting Amanda out.  His actual intention was to make sure Andy wasn't considering it, but somehow now that Amanda has run with it, that PROVES that he is out to get her. He was implying they should take the deal...sigh...

 

 

Meanwhile on the couches outside, still unaware of the goings on of the rest of the house, Judd hit the mid-week slop funk.

 

 

Amanda ended her conversation with McCrae, Andy, and Aaryn by saying "It's done! He lied about Kaitlin so it's DONE! It's over.".  So as of now, Judd is the target, and Aaryn is the replacement member of the "Goof Troop" alliance.

After that conversaton the game talk mostly died down and the rest of the night has been just silliness and bored playing around.  They are still awake, but winding down quickly.

I wish I could tell you that something else happened in the house, but it didn't. I wasn't kidding when I said they talked about this ALL DAY LONG. I'm sad about it. I like Judd and would like to see him go far in the game.  I am hoping that he either realizes what is going on and makes a new plan, or someone else realizes what is really going on and stops the paranoia and ridiculousness.  If Amanda's paranoia doesn't do her in this week (which I don't think it will. They are all drunk on the Koolaid and HOH chips), Judd might be toast next week.  As of now Howard is still going and I don't see that changing. There are still several more days for people to freak out though.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more live feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

Paranoia, The Destroyer

Silly boy, you self-destroyer 

Paranoia, the destroyer 

Self-destroyer, wreck your health

Destroy your friends, destroy yourself

                 Kinks "Destroyer"

 

Yeah yeah, Scott's usually the one to post lyrics but this song has been running through my head all day after Spencer used the POV he won on Saturday and Aaryn put Candice up on the block in his place.

Actually ever since Amanda was put up by "America" the house has been non-stop paranoia.  Amanda is super worried she might go up.  And late last night as Ash mentioned she started to suspect Judd of being some kind of sneaky mastermind.  18 hours later she now seems convinced that Judd is MVP this week and may have even been MVP LAST week.   The running around she has done today from HG to HG may in the end come back to haunt her.

Through all of this they still seem to be targeting Howard to go home, however Spencer is making a bit of an effort to rally the minority of the house to vote out Amanda thus making a 'bold' move.

Its really a strange season.  Helen has been completely obsessed with the Jury and her obsession has worked its way into others thinking.  We don't even know when the just starts yet but franly they should be more concerned about their alliances and not who they want out before or after Jury.

Some have called today the most boring day of the season.  I don't think thats the case but it certainly hasn't been one to write a huge blog post about.  So with that I sign off ;)
