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...

The Night Owl

A lot happened tonight, but most of it will be inconsequential in the long run.  For most of the day and night Candice did not leave the have-not room and stayed in her airplane bed under a cover.  She had determined that she was likely going to be the target when she is put up today/tomorrow and she felt that had been the plan all along.  She was also dealing with Howard not being happy with her for trying to campaign on his behalf in addition to most of the HGs talking shit about her to varying degrees.

 

 

While Candice stayed in bed there was another stupid nail party up in the HOH.  All the girls plus Andy and minus Candice participated this time while the boys downstairs had a pizza making party.  Much wine and beer was partaken of at the nail party upstairs and all the girls aside from GinaMarie and Amanda (have-nots) were quite tipsy after leaving the party.

 

 

While Helen, Elissa, Jessie, and Andy continued to drink, Amanda told Judd that the general consensus of the nail party is that he is being mean this week and so he needs to be nicer to the girls and kiss a little ass.  She told him she did damage control by telling them that he was a have-not/not feeling good/having anxiety, but that he still needed to be nicer and that Jessie was upset that he was not being more "lovey" with her.  So after checking in on Candice to see if she needed anything, off he went to the HOH to girl bond.

 

 

Meanwhile Amanda went in to speak to Candice about what was going on with her.  They had a VERY long discussion in which Candice told her how she felt and Amanda tried to explain to her that none of this was personal and that it was all game.  She told her that she needed to take her personal feelings for Howard out of it and not to give up. They also talked about Aaryn and Amanda tried to explain to her that the Aaryn thing was also a personal issue and not related to the game.  Candice told her she understood all of that, but that if it was Amanda up against McCrae on the block or if she had been attacked for being Jewish, she would be emotional too. While Amanda was talking to Candice, Helen and Elissa took it upon themselves to listen to the whole conversation at the door.

 

 

After a while Helen and Elissa got tired of listening in on the conversation and decided to just insert themselves into it.  Helen did a lot of self victimizing and martyring of herself as well as telling Candice that she (Candice) could not work with someone who has been lying to her (Helen) for the WHOLE game.  Did I mention Helen was still drinking?

 

 

The conversation eventually wound down after Candice admitted to them that Spencer had been the one to encourage her to campaign for Howard and that he told her what to say to Helen last night.  I don't know if that part is actually true or not. I missed the conversation Candice had with Spencer about campaigning, but I don't doubt it.  Once the conversation was over, Candice finally emerged from the have-not room to move around the house and go outside for a bit.  This made me happy since until tonight I was pretty sure Candice had given up all will to live in the game and might self evict.  I'm not sure she is cut out for BB, but I do feel bad when someone gets so down they become that isolated and cry that much.

For a while it was all fun and drunk games as Helen loudly blabbed about things and Andy threw a lime in the pool and made jokes about Nick that made GinaMarie freak out. The drunk people were tipsy and the have-nots smoked.  Didn't last long though.

 

After the conversation with Candice Amanda went up to the HOH room to talk to Aaryn and GinaMarie about how Spencer was the one to blame for Candice's "threatening" campaigns last night.  She told them that this means they can't go after Candice next, but instead need to go after Spencer and make sure that he is the next one out.

 

 

This conversation was apparently upsetting to Aaryn (who was also drunk) because she does not want Candice back in the game.  At 2 different times during the night she had Spencer up in the HOH room alone to tell him that she thinks Howard is a good man and that she does not want him to go home. She wants Candice to be the target. During her second talk with him she admitted to him that it was not Helen who wanted Howard nominated and out, it was Amanda.  She told him that now she felt trapped like there was nothing she could do because Amanda was now saying that Candice wasn't even a target anymore.

 

 

Downstairs, Drunk Helen told Drunk Elissa that Jessie was now a problem and that she was trying to play head games with them.  She told Elissa that she couldn't get Aaryn alone without Jessie and that she was now sure that Jessie was the one that told lies about Kaitlin to get her out of the house and make sure they kept Aaryn so that she could get Elissa and Helen to target Aaryn next. What?!  Anyway, the two of them made a drunken plan to tell Jessie how much they love Aaryn and want to keep her now just to drive Jessie crazy. Helen also apologized to the camera for evicting Kaitlin (of course).

 

 

The "Goof Troop" alliance minus Judd/plus Jessie had a meeting in the cockpit to make sure they were all still on the same page to get Howard out and then target Spencer next.  They as of now are planning to tell Howard that things are fine and that he is okay and then blindside him on Thursday if they can.  Chances are it won't be a true blindside though since they already told Candice she is absolutely staying.

Aaryn came outside for a while and told Amanda and Judd about her conversations with Spencer and said that she was just trying to make him think that she was low on their totem pole and trying to cover her bases with Spencer. Amanda told Aaryn that she is actually staying for a long time and that Elissa and others were all going well before she would ever be gone.

Helen held court in the storage room where for a while she had a drunk love fest conversation with GinaMarie and then later had a conversation with Howard.  Helen told GM that she would likely win America's favorite player and discussed Nick with her for a while.  Howard told Helen that if he was going to be put on the block next to Candice, he would rather have them keep her and send him home.

 

 

Andy listened in at the door while Helen and Howard were talking and then went to talk to Helen afterwords.  He told her that he realized Howard was a nice guy but that was the reason he has to go.  He later reported everything back to Amanda and the rest of his alliance. He told Amanda and McCrae that he and Helen just think Howard is probably a nice guy outside of the game. Amanda freaked out and went into the "but Howard BULLIED me" speech.  Andy told her to please not pull a Judd and just trust him that he and Helen are solid. 

While Andy was talking to Helen and the others, Howard and Candice got into a fight about everything that Helen and Amanda told Candice earlier in the night.  They told her that Howard had not protected her and was campaigning against her and so she was mad at him about it.  Howard told her that he was sincerely sorry for whatever he had done, but that he was surprised that she would believe the lies of people coming in to talk to her about him.  He also told her he knew that she was definitely staying in the house and that he just wanted her to get herself right and ready for the next HOH. The fight went in circles for a really long time as do most Howard and Candice conversations.

 

 

After the fight, Spencer and Howard went into the cockpit to talk about game. Judd came in and told Howard that he was planning on keeping him but that he thinks Candice is going up. Howard told Judd that he had just had a discussion with Helen in which he told her that if he and Candice were going to be pitted together, he would rather have them keep Candice and send him home. He explained to Judd that it made no sense to him that everyone had been supposedly targeting GinaMarie and Aaryn, but now that Helen was pulling Aaryn's strings, suddenly it would be Candice going up and not GM.  He said that there was also another person on the block that could be voted out (Amanda) and that he had never seen a season where the whole house felt the need to vote together a certain way just because one or two people in power say so.  Andy popped in on the conversation and Howard explained it to him as well.

Howard made very good points to Judd and Andy about people playing just to get to jury and people just doing what the people who are going to beat them in the end are telling them to do, but unfortunately it I am sure it falls on deaf ears since Judd and Andy are solidly aligned with Amanda, McCrae, Helen, and Elissa.

 

 

While this conversation was going on, Amanda and McCrae were outside discussing how they may not trust Andy and Judd. Amanda has decided she is not sure she trusts Judd anymore because he lied (even though he admitted it to her) about Kaitlin wanting Helen out.  The conversation between the two of them started to get heated when Amanda started trying to obviously pull people into the cockpit to talk to them in front of Spencer and the two ended up fighting with Amanda storming out angry.  I missed a LOT of the conversation before the fight due to listening to the conversation with Howard, Judd, Spencer, and Andy, but I THINK it was mostly about Amanda being paranoid and not trusting people in their alliance.

Things are still going right now. Amanda is in the Hammock, McCrae in the cockpit and Spencer and Judd are talking on the outside couch.  A LOT of game talk is happening and it's fun to watch them scramble, but I don't think it changes anything.  I'm still pretty certain Howard will be going home on Thursday.  I will update if any more happens while I am still awake.   The veto meeting should be sometime this morning, and I expect barring something crazy drastic happening, Candice will be put on the block after Spencer takes himself off.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl 

Well, today started out like a pretty normal average day.  It did NOT stay that way for long though.  Early on Tuesday morning everyone was still on board for keeping Aaryn and evicting Kaitlin.  Amanda, Elissa, Andy, and McCrae were talking about Howard and Religion out in the backyard not far from where Howard was actually standing when Elissa started to get a little bit loud about it.  Andy tried to give her a nonchalant "shhh" so that Howard would not hear them and McCrae giggled at the effort.  That's when the few marbles that Elissa still possessed completely fell out of her head.  She was just SURE that they were making fun of her religion and laughing at her about it.  She stormed inside.  Andy and McCrae tried to follow her and let her know it had nothing to do with her religion and that they were only trying to keep her voice down.  Elissa told them she did not want to talk to either of them.  She also added "I'm not stupid. I know you were making fun of me. It's a disgrace. I take my beliefs very seriously.".  It took a while for them to convince her, but finally things SEEMED like they were going to be okay...until the HOH lockdown.

A few hours later there was a lockdown where all the HGs had to stay in the HOH.  Most of them dozed off and slept except for Amanda and Elissa.  They went into the bathroom and Elissa ended up crying in a shower stall telling Amanda again that she is not stupid and knows that they were making fun of her religious beliefs.

Once the lockdown was over Elissa crawled into Judd's HOH bed and went to sleep and the other HGs went their separate ways and did their own thing.  Earlier in the morning, Judd, Amanda, McCrae, Andy, and Helen had all compared notes on Howard and Spencer.  Amanda was still claiming to be in a fake alliance with Howard (she isn't) and saying that he has deals with everyone in the house.  This prompted Judd and Andy to spill about the fake alliance they have with Spencer and Howard that also sort of sometimes includes GinaMarie and Kaitlin.  Helen told Elissa about it and Elissa asked Judd if it was true and he told her yes, and so she agreed that was another good reason to get Kaitlin out and to go after Howard next week.

Amanda hammered on to Judd some more about how she thinks Howard is the problem in the house and how she thinks he is MVP and has secret powers.  Judd who was not feeling well due to running out of his meds and no being able to sleep much then went on a very un-Judd-like rampage of a little bit of meanness and a lot of searching under mattresses and inside pillows around Howard's bed trying to find a "coup de tat" or something similar.  After he got his meds he started to calm down and went to play a game of pool with Howard.

While this game of pool was happening, Elissa, still missing her marbles, decied to go and do her super passive aggressive bitch thing with Kaitlin.  She of course had an agenda...to get Aaryn to be the one voted out. 

Elissa started asking Kaitlin if she had a secret alliance with Howard, GM, Judd, and Kaitlin.  She told her that if she didn't she needed to confront them in front of the whole house so that people would know about it.  She also told her that people were planning to vote her out, but that she wanted Aaryn gone and so she wanted to know what was really happening.  Kaitlin being not very bright in many ways took the bait and immediately ran to Helen and Aaryn to tell them what Elissa had been saying.  Aaryn also told Helen that she had heard her name mentioned.

We all know how quickly news travels in the BB house.  It only took about 10 minutes for everyone in the house to know what was happening.  Helen in an effort to do damage control went searching for Elissa and found her laying in bed with GinaMarie chatting.  She asked if she could talk to her and Elissa said no.  Helen pressed the matter, and then Aaryn walked in. 

Then all hell broke loose.  Aaryn and Elissa started snipping at each other because Elissa kept telling Aaryn that she was saying things about her all the time etc..   Aaryn started defending herself and for ONCE, Aaryn was actually right.  Somewhere during the spat Elissa told Kaitlin she wanted to know the truth and told her to go get Spencer and Howard.  Once they came in, the whole house besides Amanda and McCrae (who still have their asses glued to the HOH bed) and Candice who was sleeping, also joined the party.  The argument was very circular.  Elissa kept accusing Aaryn of lying about her and then asking about the fake alliance.  All involved denied the fake alliance and Aaryn kept telling Elissa exactly what she said and telling her that she had tried to patch things up with her many times. 

In this particular argument, Aaryn was actually completely right.   Before you guys chop my head off, let me say I am NOT in any way defending the things that Aaryn has said, or her as a  person.  I am just saying in this one instance, she was right.  Judd was probably one of the most truly uncomfortable people in the room since everyone including Elissa kept asking "well who said there was an alliance?" when Elissa knew full well that he was the one who told her about it. 

After several really strange rounds, the meeting/fight broke up and Helen and Andy ran straight up to the HOH room to talk to Amanda and McCrae about what had just happened.  Amanda of course started blaming Spencer and Howard, but the room consensus was that Elissa has to go SOON and possible before Howard or Spencer.

While the HOH talks were happening, Judd went out to talk to Elissa in the backyard.  He told her that she was one of his best friends in the house and that he had felt close to her since she had been very kind to him when he was really sick week one.  He then told her that even though they were close he needed to know if she had his back because what she did was putting a huge target on him.  She refused to understand that what she did had any repercussions to his game and in the end told him "you are all liars".  Meaning that she believes he made up the alliance with Howard and Spencer to get her to vote Kaitlin out of the house.

Elissa then went inside to take a shower and also victimize herself to Howard and a few other people that would listen to her.  Things seemed to be mostly dying down for the night other than the mass talks about Elissa being insane....but THEN they got booze!!

Wine always seems to be the thing tha fuels Amanda at her worst/best dramatic moments in the house and tonight was no different.  Helen, Kaitlin, and Candice were in the hammock drinking wine and chatting about what had happened.  Candice was implying that Amanda had created the story about the fake alliance prompting Elissa to do what she did.  Up in the HOH room, Amanda was talking shit about Candice to McCrae.  Eventually Jessie who had heard  the conversation with Candice came up to the HOH and told Amanda what had been said. This fueled the slightly buzzed Amanda to go downstairs and confront Candice.  She yelled at her and accused her of having no balls and then went back upstairs.

And the wine just kept flowing....

After going upstairs and telling McCrae and Aaryn what happened with Candice, and talking a lot of shit about Candice and Kaitlin, Amanda decided to make a return trip for round two.  This time she didn't yell at Candice, but instead was really nasty about people not present mainly Kaitlin and GinaMarie.   Once the outside party was broken up, Amanda pulled Howard and Spencer into the Cockpit to basically tell Howard to control Candice and keep her name out of Candice's mouth. Meanwhile, Kaitlin went upstairs and vented to McCrae about the Amanda situation.

At some point in-between all the fighting and craziness, Amanda started getting even closer with Aaryn, and at this point I think she might actually consider her an alliance member.

Right now things seem to be settling down.  Amanda and McCrae are alone in the HOH room and Spencer, Helen, and Andy are chatting in the Hammock about what happened.

What an INSANE night!! We still have more than 24 hours to go before the eviction so things are subject to change, but as of now, Kaitlin is still leaving and Aaryn and GinaMarie are staying.  Who knows what will happen today though.  With Elissa seeming to have gone off the rails or "gone rogue" as a few HGs have called it, a million things could happen today.  I expect to see a lot of duckfacing it up before eviction night on Thursday.  I will throw some pictures of the night down below for you all to see.  I won't lie, this blog was better the first time I wrote it, but my tired brain accidentally deleted it all and so I had to start over.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

First off, a HUGE congrats to my favorite feed entertainment, Judd, for winning HOH tonight!!! I'm really excited for him!!

 

 

Unfortunately, for Judd to do what he wants this week he will have many people to overcome.  Directly after the live show the feeds came back to Amanda already bossing him around about how much she wants Howard out.  Jessie dared to suggest a different idea like maybe Kaitlin or Aaryn leaving, and Amanda immediately jumped down her throat.  She said everything she possibly could to Judd and everyone else about how "dangerous" Howard is and how important it is to backdoor him this week.

 

 

A little while later Judd got his HOH room and Helen and Elissa's butts remained firmly in place in the HOH bed cockblocking any game talk that could possibly take place by other people coming in and out of the room.  Spencer was able to grab a few precious moments with Judd in which he told Spencer "This is MY HOH and I'm not listening to what someone else tells me to do. I'm not putting you up no matter what. I would like to see a girl leave this week.".  Judd told Elissa and Spencer both that he would prefer to nominate Kaitlin and GinaMarie with GinaMarie being a pawn.  He stated that while Aaryn is a bad person and certainly not fun to be around, Kaitlin wins comps and comes very close to winning the ones she loses.  She is also very social and sweet when she wants to be, making her a bigger threat.  He said he would like to see Kaitlin voted out.

Elissa then pulled Judd aside and told him that she didn't like the idea of sending Kaitlin out and wanted to use "her" MVP to put Aaryn up with Aaryn to go OR to backdoor Spencer or Howard.  We of course know that Elissa will not get MVP this week because we are the ones making the third nomination.  However, the nomination will be the same as if Elissa were HOH, as I am positive Aaryn will be the one nominated. Judd finally gave in and told Elissa that if they had the chance to backdoor a bigger target they could definitely do that, but I believe he was just telling her what she wanted to hear.

 

 

Shortly after this conversation, there was a booze delivery and it was time for the Have-nots to eat.  For a little while everyone happily stuffed their faces and drank their alcohol while Helen droned on and on about being a mom.  She told pregnancy stories that no one cared about, but that was okay since everyone was getting to eat and celebrate.

 

 

During the Have-not feast, Judd found a minute to pull Jessie aside and ask her what she was thinking.  Jessie has been growing on me more and more lately.  In a true statement of how much smarter she is than I originally thought, she told Judd he needs to do what HE wants to do and not let Amanda and McCrae try to force him to get blood on his hands for them.  She told him that if Amanda wanted someone out, let her win HOH and do it.  They both agreed that they do not want a guy going home this week as 3 guys have left already.  Judd told her that he thinks he is going to put up Kaitlin and GinaMarie hoping for Kaitlin to go.

 

 

After his talk with Jessie, Judd tried to pull Aaryn up to his HOH room to let her know that she may be put up by the MVP, but that he was not planning to put her up himself, However, like maggots on dead meat, the troops immediately swarmed the HOH room.  Helen, Andy, Elissa, and Amanda were quite determined to stay in the HOH and eat and talk all night, so Judd resorted to talking game in the have not room.  He told Aaryn he was pretty sure Elissa was going to put her up, but that if he won veto he would likely take her down depending on whether the house would work with him or not and whether Elissa as MVP would work with him or not.  He said that if Elissa was against him and not willing to work with him he might as well just backdoor her instead.  This could be interesting since Elissa won't be getting MVP, but I think the HGs will think she is just lying about not having it.

 

 

A little while later up in the HOH room, Helen decided to give Judd a speech and demonstration on how to be HOH.  She literally gave him a tour of the bathroom and taught him how to feed the fish. I'm not kidding you guys. I can't make this stuff up. She ACTUALLY lectured him on how to HOH.  She then firmly planted her butt on the couch where she fell asleep trying to wait out the others in the room.  Eventually she FINALLY went back downstairs.

 

 

Not to be outdone, once the others started filing out of the HOH room, Elissa started asking Judd if she could sleep on the couch in the HOH instead of the bed everyone had opened up for her downstairs.  She claimed all kinds of reasons such as being a germaphobe etc..  but none of them really made sense. He said she could sleep there if BB would allow her to, but the consensus of the others in the room was that it had been tried before by Aaryn and that BB would not allow it.  She tried it anyway, until BB called her out and made her go downstairs.

Judd eventually got the chance to talk to Howard and Spencer alone.  They both just told him that he should do what is best for his game and not listen to what other people are telling him to do.  Neither tried to make any deals. They just told him that they were willing to have his back if he would have theirs.

While Judd was talking to Howard and Spencer, in the cockpit, Amanda, Andy, and McCrae were talking about how they now see the "Rachel" coming out in Elissa and all agreed that she is freaking them out and needs to go soon.  Amanda still wants Howard out this week and is attempting to make that happen, but she wants Elissa to go soon now.

 

 

Elissa snuck into where Helen was sleeping and the two of them droned on and on and on and on and on about how they HAVE to make it so that Howard or Spencer goes home.  They think Judd is "SO DUMB" for putting up the people he wants to put up.  They want to protect GinaMarie and Kaitlin and make sure that Howard or Spencer goes.  Elissa then said if she couldn't get one of the boys out it HAS to be Aaryn. I wonder how she will react when she ISN'T MVP this week...

Currently everyone is still awake, but not really game talking.  Judd is a little drunkenly (6 Coronas in) talking to Aaryn about how the MVP twist has made people bigger floaters than ever instead of extinguishing them.  He says now they just float to the MVP power.  He is right of course. 

 

 

Everyone is kind of winding down, and I don't expect much more to happen, so I'm going to wrap the blog up here.  Judd seems to be determined to do his own thing and not listen to other people. I am proud of him. I fully expect to see GinaMarie and Kaitlin nominated later today.  The Have-Not competition should come sometime early this morning. 

I'm excited about this week.  I thought it would be another long boring "Aaryn is the target and she is going" kind of week, just like last week with Jeremy.  That doesn't seem to be the case though.  The HOH wants different people out than the rest of the house, and no one is getting MVP.  The MVP vote will be America's, but the house and HOH are not really on board to vote out their nomination.  This could get very interesting. 

In recent minutes, Judd has really started heading towards GinaMarie possibly being his target because he just can't take anymore of the Nick talk and she doesn't want to be there.  I think this could just be drunk talk though.  I doubt GinaMarie will go over Kaitlin or Aaryn. 

Anyway, this could be an exciting week *fingers crossed*.  As always you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

I wish I could tell you a lot happened tonight, but that's the exact opposite of the case.  I think we all knew this would be a pretty boring week since Jeremy is the intended target and he did not win veto.  The only thing really driving people to even talk any game is just the fear that Kaitlin won't use the veto on herself tomorrow.  If she didn't that would force the house to evict her or Aaryn or Spencer instead of Jeremy, and no one wants that. 

Probably the most amusing thing that went on was Jeremy campaigning.  It wasn't amusing because Jeremy is good at it or interesting. In fact I don't really remember him saying much outside of "I really deserve to be here and you know it".  He WAS however wearing a diaper and baby bonnet.  So, that made it a little entertaining.

 

 

While Jeremy was campaigning, GinaMarie decided to turn Helen and Elissa into Jersey Shore type characters so they could put on a show for the house.  I've never been quite so embarrassed for them.

 

 

Howard talked to Kaitlin for a while trying to assure her that she needed to use the veto on herself even though it meant Jeremy would go home.  His intentions were good, but it set off Amanda's paranoia alarm.   Amanda, McCrae, and alternating other people popped in and out of the cockpit for a good portion of the night while Amanda freaked out that Howard might be conspiring to get Kaitlin not to use veto so he could keep Jeremy.  Aaryn eventually talked to Kaitlin and got the real story and told Amanda.  Hopefully this will calm her down or her Paranoia is going to take her out.

 

 

For a very long time the feeds were on Kaitlin and Jeremy making out and GinaMarie and Aaryn having a chat.  Aaryn tried once again to tell GM that she needed to let the whole Nick thing go and just play the game because if it was real, it would still be real after they get out of the house.  GM didn't hear any of her advice though and the conversation kind of went circular.

 

 

Outside of that the night was mostly spent in group conversations where they covered everything from "what would happen if we voted for someone not nominated on the live show?" to "please explain to me what a reach around is?".  There were some funny moments, but overall the night was pretty dull.

 

 

If everything goes as expected, sometime today Kaitlin will pull herself from the block and Jeremy will go up in her place most likely sealing his fate. I don't expect this week to get all that exciting until we see who wins HOH Thursday night, but stranger things have happened before.  At this point in the game I would love to see Howard or Judd win HOH and shake everyone up a little bit.  I'm tired of the Mom Alliance/Nerd Herd part 2.  Helen's HOH-itis is about to drive me over the edge.  As always you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.   Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Not a lot happened today/tonight in the BB house.  The feeds were down for about 5 hours during the veto competition.  When they returned we found out that Kaitlin had won the veto.  She tried to talk to Helen about the idea of putting Howard up on the block instead of Jeremy when she comes off, but Helen said that the house would not be okay with that.  She said the house wanted Jeremy out, but that they would understand if Kaitlin didn't want to vote against him and that she could throw a vote to Spencer. 

Helen did a lot of crying and acted as if her heart was absolutely broken over having to put Jeremy up.  She promised Kaitlin (just like everyone else she has talked to so far) that she would take her far in the game and that she and Andy were going to protect her and keep her around.

Andy and Helen held court in the HOH room for a few hours with various groups coming in and out while they all talked about what horrible game players the already evicted HGs were.  Andy in particular was very vocal about how terrible Nick was at the game and how awful the Moving Company was etc..  He and Helen went on and on as if having an alliance is a crime.  I guess they are the only ones allowed to have alliances.  The fact that Andy is in about 5 alliances at this point seems to matter very little to him.

 

 

Outside of that almost everything was really dull.  GinaMarie decided to go racist again saying Candice should "go back to Africa" and "too bad they don't have any nail technician Asians in the house".  She then went inside and cried some more about Nick...while still wearing his hat.  Andy, Aaryn, Jeremy,  Amanda, and McCrae at different times of the night all mentioned that they can't be around GinaMarie anymore because all she ever talks about is Nick and it's driving them crazy.

 

 

An incredibly unnecessary amount of time was dedicated to Kaitlin and Jeremy making out.  I mean hours upon hours upon hours.  Jeremy knows he is going home on Thursday so there really isn't any drama or questions or anything going on there this week.

 

 

Candice and Howard spent a lot of time together getting closer.  They game talked a little and Howard told Candice he thinks Helen has made too many promises since she has promised pretty much everyone to keep them safe, but she cannot win HOH next week.

 

 

Amanda got a good case of paranoia and spent a good portion of the night telling McCrae and Andy that she is sure that Howard has a deal with Elissa and that's why Elissa did not nominate him even though she told her to. She, Andy, and McCrae talked about it for a while, but they kept getting called out for production talk so the feeds kept cutting, and eventually people started mentioning penalty noms.

 

 

The most interesting thing that happened tonight in my opinion was Judd's slop breakdown. He is on day 2 and already losing it.  He went on a very intense rant about how much guacamole sucks, and said he takes back his "thank you" to America for the food because he can't eat grapefruit and guacamole is useless without chips.  A little later in the night Judd also talked to Spencer and Andy about how he feels like they need to start going after some of the girls because pretty soon there won't be enough guys to combat all the women in the house.  I agree with him.  The last thing I want to be stuck watching is The Mom Squad alliance or GinaMarie and Aaryn sitting around talking shit about everyone.

 

 

I'm sorry there isn't more to report tonight.  There was lots of Andy talk talk talking, and Helen crying and talking about "evil people" in the house, but that's nothing new since it happens pretty much every second of the day.  Hopefully something more interesting will happen in the next 24 hours and I will have something new to report.  As always you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Tonight was a night of confessions, house meetings, love fests, and fights.  After the feeds came back from trivia earlier tonight, we learned pretty quickly that Kaitlin and Aaryn had been nominated.  Neither of them are the target (that's Jeremy), but Helen and her alliance (the rest of the house minus Spencer and  Howard) wanted to put them up just in case Jeremy wins veto so that they can send Aaryn home in a worst case scenario situation. 

After nominations, the confessions began.  I don't remember who was first, but at some point each member of the alliance formerly known as The Moving Company spilled their guts to the various members of the house.  Most had already told Helen before nominations (Howard being the only exception) but Spencer and Howard felt the need to hold a meeting in HOH minus BlondeTourage and Amanda and McCrae.  They confessed their actions in the MC and also left a lot of things out.  They blamed asome things on members not present (Nick and Jeremy) and it ended in a  "Kumbaya let's all hold hands and be good people" love fest.  Am I watching Big Brother? Because I feel like this is turning into something completely different. Spencer claimed that the reason he voted out Nick was because his family would not like him being in an alliance with people "who make offensive comments and slurs against women".  I assume he was talking about Jeremy, but the irony in that of course is that Spencer himself is currently on unpaid leave from his job due to the offensive comments he himself has said about women in the house. 

Helen cried at least 15 times during the course of the day and night, but when Spencer and Howard gave their speeches, she and Andy decided to turn it on extra thick.  She cried and she lectured about people lying.  She talked about how they had to make sure the "good people" win the game and that the "evil people" don't.  I seriously can't with Helen.  I wanted to like her, but I just can't.  She has a terrible case of HOH-itis and victim syndrome rolled into one making her a gigantic pain in the ass.   Andy decided it would be better for his game to pretend that he is still mad at Spencer and splash water on his face to pretend he was crying. What that actually has to do with game play I have NO idea.  I think he was just really hoping they would call him to the DR to talk about it.  I personally hope they DO start calling him in more so I can have a break from his constant feed bombing all over the place. 

Amanda and McCrae decided that when Elissa got her MVP notification (since everyone knew it would be her) they wanted her to put up Howard so the he could either win veto and they could BD Jeremy, or they could send Howard home if Jeremy got to play in veto and won.  Amanda is all about getting Howard out because she knows that he does not trust her and would like to see her leave. 

After Elissa got her MVP confirmation, she told McCrae.  McCrae told her he would take the heat and tell everyone that he got MVP (WHAT?!).   Why he would want to put an extra target on his back bigger than Amanda already is, I have no idea..but whatever..it's what he did. 

Amanda still feeling confident that she could control everything including the MVP nomination decided to start a fight with Candice about Howard going up on the block because Candice had pleaded with Elissa and Helen and McCrae to please keep Howard off the block and put up Spencer instead.  She has grown close with Howard and told Amanda that she would feel the same way about someone wanting to put McCrae up.  Amanda refused to see the reason in this and she and Candice ended on bad terms with Candice going downstairs angry.

Amanda THEN decided it would be a good idea to fight with Howard when he was pulled upstairs to talk with McCrae to talk about being put up as the MVP nomination.  Howard was okay with going up and kept trying to apologize and squash things with Amanda, but as usual she kept beating a dead horse and wouldn't let it go. She kept telling him she wanted an apology from him for "bullying" her (since when is wanting someone out considered bullying?!) and Howard kept telling her that he WAS sorry for wanting her out etc..  Eventually they just stopped fighting about the same ridiculous things that happened last week and Howard went downstairs. 

Then, Elissa was called to the DR to make her MVP nomination.  When she returned upstairs Amanda and Helen were in the room and Elissa told Amanda that she didn't get MVP.  Amanda called her a liar and they started arguing about it.  Finally it came out that Elissa did have MVP but that she did not feel right nominating Howard and had nominated Spencer instead with the target still being Jeremy.  Her nomination could very well be due to production interference because Helen mentioned at least 3 times tonight that the DR did not want Howard nominated and then the feeds immediately cut to fish each time.  Once Amanda learned that Elissa had nominated Spencer and not Howard, she went off and started her third fight of the night.  She said she didn't understand "how Elissa could fuck them that way" and that it wasn't fair that when they protect her she would go against them and make a different nomination.  Elissa said she didn't understand why it would matter if it was Howard or Spencer on the block if Jeremy was the intended Target.  Ellissa then went on to yell at everyone in the room about how they use her and get information from her and get her to nominate people for them, but they don't ever clue her in on what THEY are doing or what THEIR alliance is thinking or who THEY are going to nominate.  The fight really didn't come to a solid conclusion, it just ended with Amanda storming downstairs with McCrae in tow so they could talk about how stupid Elissa is for going against them.  While I'm not surprised and saw this coming from a mile away from the time Amanda started trying to save Elissa to control her, I will grant Amanda the fact that Elissa knows NOTHING about how the game or nominations work.  She makes very stupid decisions about it (like putting Jeremy straight on the block knowing he will likely win veto) unless Helen is in her ear telling her exactly what to do. So really, both sides of the argument were kind of ridiculous.

Meanwhile, Spencer had a really long chat with Judd explaining to him how much he liked him and still wanted to be in an alliance with him.  he told him that everything he had told him in the last week as far as liking him and game play had been true with the exception of not outing the MC to him until today.  Judd asked him a lot of questions about the various members and Spencer told him (and told the HOH crowd earlier) about Nick's real job and going to Yale etc.. Judd was happy that he was right the first week about Nick, Spencer, Howard, and Jeremy being in an alliance.  He had been paranoid about it when he caught some of them talking late at night and was excited that his suspicions turned out to be true.

When Spencer was done talking to Judd, McCrae did damage control about the MVP nomination.  Since he had already told Howard that HE was MVP and that Howard was going up, he pulled Howard into the cockpit and spoke to him about not putting him up.  He got him to swear on the Bible about not coming after them etc..  and then ended it.  He then pulled Spencer in to talk to him about going up (since Elissa had actually already nominated him).   Spencer told him he did not mind being nominated and would take his punishment, but that he would like to not be on the outside of the alliance.  They both talked about how the reason the MC did not work was because of Jeremy being such an asshole and being cocky and paranoid.  They said they both liked Nick, but that they had to stop the alliance because they could no longer be associated with Jeremy.  After their talk, Spencer went to bed. 

Meanwhile, up in the HOH room, Elissa, Helen, and Judd were having a talk about what happened with Amanda.  Elissa started crying and saying she wanted to self evict again, but none of us are actually that lucky, and I'm pretty sure production would handcuff her to the have not room if she even TRIED to leave.  Judd and Helen both told Elissa not to let Amanda push her around because MVP is hers and it's her decision as to who goes up no matter who it is.  Later when Elissa and Helen went to bed in HOH, they both discussed having to turn on people who had protected her implying Amanda and McCrae. 

At some point when all these other things were happening, GinaMarie still dressed in Nick's hat and carrying around his coffee mug and chapstick, was told the truth about the MC alliance and who he really was via Helen.  Helen was nice to her about it and they had a good laugh.  GinaMarie decided that she does not necessarily believe Nick skates because he did not comment on her "skate shoes". *Head Desk*.  After her chat with Helen, GM was called to DR (I'm assuming to talk about what she just learned).  When she got out, Amanda decided to tell her "no one wants to hurt your feelings by telling you the truth, but Nick was saying he needed to get rid of you right away because you are so annoying".  GinaMarie let that soak in for a minute and then laughed it off.  She asked around a bit if it was true and people confirmed it.  She responded by saying she still has feelings for him and will continue to wear his hat and see what happens at the finale.  Again, I can't make this stuff  up. She is REALLY like this.  According to Judd, she now sleeps with the coffee mug that Nick drank out of.  I'm thinking the only thing GM might win out of this season is a straight jacket and a ride to the asylum.

Amanda had a long chat with Aaryn telling her that she was in a good position because everyone wants Jeremy out.  Aaryn told Amanda that Kaitlin said that if Jeremy goes this week she is just going to self evict after him because she doesn't want to be there anymore. Aaryn asked why she is the bigger threat than Kaitlin and Amanda told her that it was because she is stronger and could win HOH.  Aaryn countered that by saying "yeah, but I don't have any votes on my side and even if I won HOH all I could do is nominate whoever the house wanted out. People should just be using me as a tool".

After that chat, pretty much everyone went to bed except for McCrae and Amanda who laid downstairs a while longer alternating kissing and talking about how "stupid" everyone is who isn't going along with their plan.  They then went to bed too.

The HGs have been on lockdown all night, so Veto should be played sometime this morning, and that will seal the fate of either Jeremy, Aaryn, or Spencer.  As always you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates. Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

I don't particularly know where to start tonight.  I really thought this would be a recap where I talked about being disappointed over Nick getting evicted (which I am) and poked a little fun at GinaMarie's reactions to it (and I will get there...trust me), but SO much more has happened tonight that my brain feels like mush.  I will try to explain it all, but there is a lot to tell.

 So, the live eviction goes about as we expected it. Howard and Jeremy were the only members of the MC to vote to keep Nick, and Howard knew that he was going home anyway.  When Nick left we heard the sobs we all knew were coming from GinaMarie.

When the feeds returned, GinaMarie was sitting sobbing and blowing her nose into Nick's shorts (I'm not kidding) while wearing his hat and talking about how if she just had ONE more week with him then he would have wanted her and they would have been together.  She threw out a bunch of other stalkerish lines like "You guys don't know what we had together alone when it was just us" and one of my favorites "How do I know he won't find a girl at home? How do I know he is gonna wait for me?".  At first I thought to myself..."My gosh, I've never met someone so completely unaware of reality.", but then I remembered Aaryn, and boy did she prove her delusions tonight!

 

 

While GinaMarie was still crying in her bed and lamenting her sorrows to Aaryn and Kaitlin, Jessie had the audacity to tell her that she was very sorry this had to happen.  GinaMarie told Jessie it was her fault that Nick was gone and then the fighting started from there.  First there was a squabble between GinaMarie, Aaryn, Kaitlin, and Jessie about the bed situation.  Jeremy and Kaitlin had taken over the bed where Jessie and Judd had been sleeping.  Jeremy and Kaitlin didn't ask, they just did it and then proceded to imply that Jessie was a slut.  Well..it wasn't really just implied.  Aaryn flat out called her one. Judd came into the room to see what was going on between the girls and before he could even say anything Kaitlin Screamed "GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY ROOM, JUDD" (even though it's actually the room where HE sleeps and Kaitlin does not).   Judd grabbed Jessie and they went upstairs for Helen's HOH reveal.

 

 

At some point while everyone else was enjoying Helen's HOH reveal, downstairs Aaryn and Kaitlin (with GM still in the room sobbing into Nick's dirty shorts) flipped over Candice's bed and threw her clothes around the room.  I'm not sure why they did it. I missed that part, but when Candice came back downstairs she wasn't happy about it.  When she first came in the room Kaitlin said something smart to her and that was all it took. Candice said something about them flipping her bed and Aaryn was off and running with the racial slurs all over again.  Candice was mostly calm at first, but Aaryn kept snapping at her and making "the black girl voice" to mock her while telling her "she wants to see that black side come out".   Candice eventually started to lose it, and when GinaMarie chimed in with more nonsense, Candice snapped at GM and GM jumped up off the bed and got into Candice's face AGAIN with more racial slurs.  At this point I think Candice probably would have hit GinaMarie if Howard had not very LITERALLY picked Candice up and dragged her out of the room.

 

 

Once Candice and Howard were in the other room, Howard calmed her down a little telling her that he could not control his temper and needed her to stop so she didn't get kicked out of the game.  She went upstairs and confided in Helen and Elissa while Howard stayed downstairs and sobbed in the room alone.  I won't lie to you guys, I had a REALLY hard time watching that happen.  It's the first time watching the BB feeds has ever been emotionally painful for me.

Meanwhile, Amanda had heard that the girls were being mean to Jessie again, and indeed they were.  While Candice was upstairs, they were all railing on her for being a slut and being with Judd now as her "last and 5th choice when everyone else rejected her".  Amanda came in the room and started defending Jessie and saying "let's just ALL clear the air.  Aaryn was not having it so Amanda decided to rat everyone in the room out about each other and what they had all said behind each other's backs.  She told Kaitlin about Aaryn's problems with her and all the mean things she says about her and vice versa.  She told Jessie what they say about her.  Aaryn still balked and told Amanda she was being ridiculous and so Amanda then told Aaryn how she was trying to help her by helping her to stop talking shit behind her alliance's back and stop being portrayed as a racist.  Well of COURSE in Aaryn's mind this isn't actually happening because "she never said one single racist thing ever" so Amanda and Candice are making it all up.  This fight went on for a while and finally ended with Amanda storming off.

 

 

After that fight was over, there were a few smaller tiffs between the mean girls group while Helen and Elissa celebrated upstairs.  Howard and Spencer kind of scrambled around together trying to decide what to do now.  Very clear lines seem to have been drawn now that Nick is gone and the MC alliance is a bust.  Andy, Amanda, McCrae, and Judd are together.  Elissa, Helen, Candice, Jessie and Andy are together (Andy is in almost all the alliances lol), and BlondeTourage still consists of GinaMarie, Aaryn, Kaitlin, and Jeremy.  When Spencer came to Howard and McCrae and wanted to vote Nick out earlier today (not knowing McCrae was going to anyway) he thought that he would still be with MC, but they would have just ditched one member. That turned out not to be the case.  Howard and Spencer are now sort of floating along together without any real home.  Everyone agreed to not let on that the are no longer welcome in the alliance, but it's pretty obvious that they are on their own.

 

 

A bit later, Amanda tried again with Aaryn.  She tried gently approaching what was wrong with what Aaryn was saying and doing in the house, but Aaryn again managed to turn herself into a victiim.  She cried and claimed that she is afraid that people are going to believe she is racist "when she never said one racist thing and Candice just makes stuff up".   McCrae also jumped in on this one and told her she needed to humble herself and stop acting the way she was acting.  Amanda told her that it was her actions that got people like Nick and David who should still be there evicted, because if her alliance wasn't so awful due to her behavior, they might have actually been working together.   Aaryn of course didn't let any of it sink in, but many of you will be happy to know that she did spend a good amount of time crying in the bathroom about it.  I'm sure it was for selfish reasons, but I still take some pleasure in it.

Meanwhile, GinaMarie STILL dressed in Nick's clothes and hat and blowing her nose into his shorts was making sobbing whaling noises like a dying animal.  That's the only way I know to describe it.  I'm not sure I've ever seen anything like this. It's SO much worse than Jessie's funeral in season 11.  Several people have told her that it "isn't like Nick died. He just got evicted". But there is no consoling her.  She has even been wondering out loud if she could possibly get on the same flight as Nick if she self evicted now.  I so wish I were joking when I say that...but I'm not.

 I thought things were gong to wind down a bit and I might be able to put my tired BB'd out ass to bed when McCrae decided it was time to drop the MC bomb on Amanda and Andy.  He told them that there WAS indeed a guys alliance and told them all about how it was formed and how he turned on the alliance.  He said he turned on it because 1. he wanted to be with Amanda, and 2. because Spencer, Howard, and Jeremy were so bad at it.  He told them that it sucks that Nick got evicted because he was the only one who was actually a really good player and would have been great to work with, but that the other three were horribly and obvious and that they pushed him around about it so he had to turn on them.  Amanda and Andy took it really well. Amanda said she still trusts him, and Andy couldn't stop talking about how he can't wait to talk about it in the DR.  I'm not terribly surprised that Andy is excited to talk about anything. 

 

 

Right now they are all still awake but things seem to be winding down, and I am spent so I'm going to have to call it a night. GinaMarie is still crying, but the others are mostly just chit chatting about various game aspects and trying to figure out how the food comp and nominations will go today.  I haven't even heard anyone say who is being nominated yet because the feeds have just been fight fight fight fight, but if I had to guess I would say it would be Aaryn and kaitlin.  The MVP nomination will of course be up to Elissa I'm sure, and she will likely nominate Spencer as a pawn with the intention to backdoor Jeremy if he can't play in the veto comp, or at least get him up there if he doesn't win veto. 

HOH is really irrelevant this week in that the whole side of the house against BlondeTourage has the votes and the same targets, so all that will really matter is who the MVP nominates and who wins the veto. If Jeremy doesn't win he is going home.  If he does win, Aaryn is going home.  And that's the way I expect the week to play out.  Is anyone else already exhausted even though it's only week 3?!  I'm so glad the feeds are at least interesting this year though.  I'm really disappointed in losing Nick as a player, and I blame a lot of it on the MVP twist (and a lot of it on his own game play as well), but I can't complain about all the explosions that happened due to his eviction.  This is the reason most of us watch the feeds.  After tonight's events I'm going to say fairly confidently that Nick really needs to invest in a restraining order, and Aaryn may have to go into witness protection or something when she gets out of the house.

Anyway, that's it.  I'm sorry if this has been a jumbled mess of a blog, but it has been a very VERY long last 24 hours, my eyes are BARELY open, and it is WAY past time for me to sleep. As always, you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more updates.  Until tomorrow night....

The Night Owl

Well, here we are on eviction night eve and everything hinges on this guy:

 

 

Amanda went to work today as usual setting about saving Elissa.  Elissa had already been in Jessie's ear a little trying to sway her and so Amanda decided that if Spencer and Howard were not going to vote their way, she would just send Judd on a mission to get Jessie's vote so that she could save Elissa.  It worked like a charm and Jessie's vote was swayed.

Nick spent all day campaigning and making sure that everything was still good by the MC and everyone who said that they were keeping him in.  They all reassured him that it was, but it seems this may not be the case.

Once Amanda came to McCrae with Jessie's vote being solid, rather than keeping his usual calm and stoic demeanor, he began to celebrate with her.  I mean REALLY celebrate about them being able to keep Elissa and vote out Nick.  Up until now I have only been nervous and thought that he MAY be tempted to be swayed, but I am now thinking that he might ACTUALLY be voting Nick out.  I'm not going to lie, I'm disappointed by it..a lot. 

Here are the facts and reasons I think he might keep Nick:  If he votes against the MC, he will have 3 strong guys after him plus Aaryn, Kaitlin, and GinaMarie (not that the girls are much of a threat).  The MC will expose him and they will immediately want both he and Amanda out.  He also dropped hints to Amanda as if he thought that Candice or Jessie would vote wrong possibly preparing her for the vote he would have to claim was not his own.

Here are the reasons I think he IS voting Nick out:  He seems to have actually fallen for Amanda the man eater.  I think he thinks he may be able to remain protected within the numbers of the until now faux alliance with all the numbers, and also under the shelter of Elissa's weekly MVP protection.  Keeping Ellissa could prove to be a strategic move on his part and would separate him from people like Jeremy who are obviously difficult to deal with and unpredictable.

So that's where things stand and it all hangs in the hands McCrae.  To my dismay, I think Nick is going home.  I shouldn't be surprised, my favorites ALWAYS go home. I think the twist this year is bullshit and this has productions grubby little hands all over it, but when does BB ever NOT screw us with some kind of twist involving past HGs anymore?  I know not everyone agrees with me, so I will avoid a rant.

here is where the votes are:

To Keep Elissa: Judd, Andy, Amanda, Jessie, Candice 

To Keep Nick: Spencer, Howard, Jeremy, Kaitlin, GinaMarie

Unknown vote: McCrae

It's eviction eve and it looks like we are still going to be stuck with Elissa AGAIN.  Everything hinges on the pizza boy from Minnesota.  Until tomorrow night....

The Night Owl

Well, surprise! The house flipped again tonight!

 Early in the evening Amanda decided to have a chat with Aaryn about some of her racist comments and the way she is coming off.  Aaryn in true Aaryn form and all her KKK glory managed to make herself a victim in the situation.  She pretty much blamed it on Candice twisting people's words and that was the end of that.  Well almost the end...she went and told Howard how she isn't a racist but Candice was twisting her words as well.  All conversations were awkward to say the least.

 As far as game goes, Amanda finally said she is on board with McCrae to vote out Elissa and Keep Nick.  He convinced her that Spencer and Howard were acting too shady for them to chance voting Nick out and being the only votes cast against him (which wouldn't be the case, but he needed her to buy it).  After she got on board, the next task was to try and get Andy to sway.  Andy is still totally against it and has told everyone at LEAST 20 times how much they NEED Elissa to stay in the house.  He has become a broken record at this point and I'm not sure how much more I can take.  

 If you don't have the feeds, you need to understand that just like the creepy chucky doll he resembles, Andy is EVERYWHERE.  No matter which feed you switch to or who you want to see talk, at SOME point during that conversation Andy is going to pop up and feed bomb you wanting to know if he "told you about the time his friend in college blah blah blah..?".  He is making game talk for everyone in the house EXTREMELY difficult.

 For a while no one was really going to tell Judd what the deal was because Amanda figured they could cast the blame in his direction if he was one of the only ones who voted against Nick.  However, after Jeremy came and threatened and kind of scared him by telling him a bunch of lies about things people supposedly said about him, he went and confided in Amanda and McCrae, and they told him they were thinking they should all keep Nick and vote together.  Judd agreed that he would vote their way.

 THEN...they got alcohol and the have nots got to drink. 

 The next thing you know Andy has told Helen that Elissa might be going. Helen got all riled up and went and got Amanda.  Helen got Amanda all riled up and Suddenly we are back to square one. Nick is related to Dan. Nick can't stay. We need Elissa. There is something weird about Nick. We should keep Elissa. BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH.  *HEAD DESK*!!!

 A little while later Amanda, McCrae, and Andy talked.  They flipped back to having to vote out Elissa, but Amanda isn't stable on the idea and neither is Andy.  The two of them are still determined that something is weird and doesn't make sense.  Who knows where this will end up?  Even after tomorrow night there is still all day Thursday before the live show to scramble.  As of now they are still scrambling like crazy talking in their separate corners. I've seriously never seen a cast play this hard this fast.  These people are wearing me out.  As always you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...
