Big Brother Season 15, Episode 30 Recap

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Play Nice!

There’s been a bit of an uproar on this site (and a few others) in recent days, particularly in the comments section. Rather than go through and respond to each of them individually, I thought I’d just throw out a little statement here...and then everybody that hates me can reply accordingly.

As I’ve always said, I never truly care who wins this show. I don’t root for anybody. However, I admittedly do root against certain individuals. I do root against stunt casting. I do root against returning players. Having said that, at the end of the day I still don’t care if they win. It’s the process that matters to me, not any specific person.

I also don’t care who others root for. Every person on every season has a fan base. Even the most wretched person has people rooting for them. Conversely, every player has people that root against them. There’s nothing wrong with that. How boring would it be if we ALL thought exactly alike?

My rants about “fans”, whether on this site or on our podcast, aren’t targeted towards the vast majority of viewers or feed watchers. We’re (almost) all adults here. There’s no reason why we can’t have serious conversations about our different opinions. Calm debates are fun!

It’s the unreasonable people that I have my issues with. It’s the “timeline trolls” - people who search the #bb15 timeline for any negative mention of certain people - that are ruining an otherwise fun season for me. Their replies are both predictable and, to use a favorite word of this season, “vile”. One is considered an evil person for not thinking like them. Who has so much time that they can actively search for people to scream obscenities at?

Along the same lines, the idea that I’m supposed to change my opinion to match the public is ludicrous. Whenever I see the word “bias”, I know that means nothing more than our opinions don’t match. Have we really come to the point where the only viewpoint a person is expected to hear is the one that matches their own? Again, how boring would that be?

Most of the dissension obviously centers around one specific person. Well, you’re all getting your wish as the floaters finally made a move this week. Somehow it’s been decided that I’ve been rooting for her this year. Oh yeah, rooting against another certain person means that I’m her biggest fan. I almost forgot.

It’s certainly not true, for me at least (we do have one admittedly unabashed fan on our show). Every show needs a villain, though, and she has perfectly played that role. She’s made some smart moves, and a LOT of bad moves, and has lasted much, much longer than I ever expected. You have to admit, though, that CBS would have had a hard time coming up with storylines these last few episodes without her antics.

We have just over two weeks left of the season, and only two more episodes of our podcast. Instead of the usual hatred in the comments, let’s try something different here. Who do you think will win this season? Not who you WANT to see win, but who appears to be the likely recipient of the check?

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 29 Recap

After the drama of Thursday’s eviction of Aaryn, tonight’s episode should be fairly low key. The first half will be dominated by a competition involving a chicken coop, and the second half will be about chicken costumes and a nomination blindside that is only shocking because a handful of numbskulls actually kept a secret.

The HOH competition is where we start tonight (after a questionable recap that missed much pertinent details), and in case you forgot they have to push “eggs” through a fence. The first to get 12 wins. The footage starts with the usual “I have to win” silliness, so I’ll skip ahead here.

Once GinaMarie mentions that “her girl, Aaryn” is gone, we go back to a time where TV footage is in black and white (fitting, right?). Julie announces Aaryn’s eviction, and we see McCrae apologizing to her. Amanda says that they had to pick Andy since he was with him longer, and then “the rat” says that he now has to cut ties with Amanda and McCrae. GinaMarie adds that Aaryn walking out the door was one of her worst experiences, “besides Nick leaving”.

Andy thanks everybody after Aaryn walks out, and Amanda starts bitching about “taunting”. Elissa says she didn’t taunt her, and it’s really a nothing argument that didn’t deserve TV play.

Back to the game. There’s more useless diary room talk, and even more useless play by play from former HOH Elissa. Really, it’s only the conclusion that matters, and even silly circus music can’t add excitement. Even worse is Andy’s awful puns.

Finally, GinaMarie is on her last egg...and easily wins. Yes, the dumbest girl in the house is nothing less than fantastic at repetitive games. “Yeah, Nick. I’m gonna see you again, baby!” Ugh. The last place finishes were Judd and Spencer, so they’ll have to wear chicken suits for the next two days.

GinaMarie is over-celebrating with Elissa, and Amanda complains that they shouldn’t be so excited “after sending your best friend home”. In the diary room, Elissa says that “I’m so sick of Amanda’s rude, over-the-top behavior. She’s got to go.” Amanda runs over and hugs GinaMarie so she can sarcastically say it’s time for her to send home the person who evicted Aaryn. Amanda claims that she’s going to “make sure” she makes GinaMarie’s target move to Elissa.

After commercials, GinaMarie walks by Aaryn’s picture and “shows” her the HOH crown. “Bunny, you’re going to be so proud of me!” Both Amanda and Elissa agree. Again, we hear that Amanda is going to get into GinaMarie’s head. She walks into the bathroom and hugs her. “Once she sees that you sent home Elissa, she’s going to go bananas.”

In the diary room, GinaMarie says that she’s not Aaryn, and is going to play her own game. She’s now seen in the storage room celebrating with the rest of the Exterminators (Andy, Judd, Spencer). Andy says their goal is to break up Amanda and McCrae.

Spencer has left the room, and Amanda asks if he thinks GinaMarie is going to put up Judd and Elissa. He feigns that he has no idea, while in the storage room the celebration continues. Judd warns her that the pair will be all over her, but she says that no matter what one of them is going home.

Meanwhile, Spencer is still talking bullshit, saying he thinks that he’ll be up. In fact, he says he’s sitting there wondering which one he wants out the most. Amanda adds that she’s going to be “her new bunny” this week, and will be all over her ass.

GinaMarie has moved into the kitchen, and air kisses Elissa after agreeing that McCranda is going up. Elissa is ecstatic. “This is better than Christmas”, she reads from her production script. “This is better than anything. I can’t wait for them to get a taste of their own medicine. Mmmmm, bitter.”

I’m starting to get bored as we’re hearing the same things over and over, though. We know who the target is, and who the targets want out. Oh wait, it’s now filler time, as Spencer and Judd are called to the diary room for their chicken suits. “Fuck fuck fuck”, says Judd. “It’s cluck cluck cluck”, replies Spencer. At least it gives simple GinaMarie something to get excited about, just like on photobooth night.

Back to the same old stuff, as Amanda is now asking GinaMarie what she’s going to do. GinaMarie lies and says that Elissa is going up, but doesn’t know who will be with her. Amanda pushes for Judd, and asks that neither her or McCrae are put up. Afterwards, GInaMarie agrees that she should put up two people that the majority of the house wouldn’t argue about. “Unfortunately, those two people are Amanda and McCrae.” You just know she’s proud of that line! She’s so proud, in fact, that we get to see GinaMarie playing to the camera a bit.

More filler, as we get to see GinaMarie’s HOH room. I don’t give a shit, so I’m going to fast forward!

Now Elissa is sitting on the couch with Spencer and Andy, bitching about Amanda...who walks in just at that same time. “You never try to lower anybody, right”, Amanda counters. “You’re better than everybody. You’re Big Brother royalty.” It’s a good tirade until she thinks she’s informing Elissa that she’ll be on the block tomorrow. “That’s funny”, replies a giggling Elissa. Amanda continues on, and Elissa giggles on. Suddenly, Elissa says that she loved Jessie, and that she was the “only ten” in the house. Here we go again. Andy and Spencer is not comfortable with this, and kind of groan before walking away...followed by Elissa.

After commercials, McCrae and Spencer are now with her. Amanda is defending herself, and says that “the sweet revenge will be when she’s nominated tomorrow”. McCrae says that she needs to calm down. “Be a bigger person.” He tells her that she should take Elissa’s abuse and not reply at all. She’ll look better that way. “You have to be the victim.”

When Amanda comments how Elissa is probably talking about her right now, we cut to Elissa at the pool doing just that. “She’s a mean, disgusting person.” Wait, I thought that was the description of Aaryn! Andy tells her to just walk away, and that pisses off Elissa.

Back to Amanda bitching about Elissa. Ugh, I’m so bored with this topic...on both ends. Amanda then walks into the bedroom to complain how Elissa “antagonizes” her, and Elissa just walks out of the room. Seriously, this is the whole show? We even get a piano music segment as Amanda tears up.

We do get a little break from the Amanda/Elissa silliness, as they have a luxury comp. The house is full of balloons, and they have to pop them to find a 1, 0, and K to win ten thousand bucks. They all read the typical puns in the diary room, and it ends up with Spencer winning the cash. Good for him, I guess.

GinaMarie is now upstairs with Judd, but is interrupted by Amanda. She’s told to walk away, and Judd flips her off. GinaMarie explains that she has to keep them in the dark, and continues to talk about nothing with him before Amanda is finally let back in. We get a redo of the earlier conversation, where Amanda explains who would put the least targets on her. McCrae joins them, but it doesn’t go any better than it did last time. She even mentions how Elissa was responsible for getting rid of GinaMarie’s best friends, Nick and Aaryn, but too bad she really is “as dumb as we think”.

There’s some more babbling as Amanda wanders around telling everybody that Elissa is going up. Andy and Judd are pretty proud of themselves, and can’t wait for the actual ceremony. “Stay tuned, America. You’re not going to want to miss this one”, says Judd.

So here we go. The blindside of the season. The moment the Brenchel Army has been waiting for. How exciting can it be, though, when it’s orchestrated by the dim bulb GinaMarie? This is the girl who can’t say simple words. The girl whose highlight of the week is the photobooth. Most importantly, the ONE PERSON IN THE HOUSE WHO HAS SAID THE WORD THAT CAN’T BE SAID!

She’s all dolled up (no scrubs, yo) for her big moment, and we get to hear again from everybody who the nominees will or should be, and GinaMarie finally pulls everybody into the house. The first key pulled belongs to Andy, followed by Spencer, Elissa, and Judd. Yes, McCranda has been nominated. Ooof on Amanda’s face.

GinaMarie says that they’re a “huge, dynamic power couple. Nobody had the balls or was too chick, no pun intended, to put you guys up.” She tells McCrae that at the beginning he had “so much fire” that he lost with Amanda. To Amanda, she says that “people think I’m crazy New York? Girl, you top the cake. But that’s one of the reasons why I love you.”

Actually, the words didn’t quite come out like that. Dumb GinaMarie had to do second and third takes, and still screwed up some of her words. The rest of the house is happy, though. Judd is jumping around in his chicken suit, and Elissa’s smile stretches that botox so far I’m scared it’s going to snap her lips right off her face.

We end with some of the usual diary room reactions, including tearful Amanda and McCrae comments, and that’s it. Here you go, kids. I know the pro-Elissa crowd is ready to fill up this space with “vile” comments, so have at it. I’m moving on to Breaking Bad after posting this.

American Big Brother Challenge - The Land of Big Brother Part IV by "East Side" Dave McDonald!

Before you bite my dick off and spit it out onto the floor and stomp on it because I haven't written a Big Brother blog post in a month, let me explain.  OK?  That's the least you could God Damn do.  I'll be honest with you people.  I'll tell you the truth as to my whereabouts for the previous thirty days and then hopefully you'll understand.

I was kid-napped by a band of criminal midgets who time travel.  We went all over place.  We saw great historical people like Napoleon and Sean Connery.  It was nuts.  

Alright, alright, I was lying just there.  That was the film "Time Bandits".  I'm sorry.  Let's just move past this and start fresh.  OK.  I'll just come clean and we'll continue our friendship.

Anyway, I was locked inside the world famous Frankinson Fart Factory, where they make farts all day.

Fine.  That was another lie.

The truth is that I got a new job and simply haven't had the time to write shit down.  But it being Labor Day Weekend and all, I've decided to get back into the swing of things.  So here's my take on a few developments.

I think Amanda and McCrae may turn into a couple.  Also, I'm pretty sure Elissa is related to someone.  Jesus, just how long have I been away anyway?

I can't stand these unanimous evictions.  This is the biggest collection of spineless people I've seen since I was at a Christopher Reeve Clone Convention.

I guess I'll root for Judd but if he says "J-U-Double-D" one more time while talking about himself I'm gonna puke on my dog.  Fuck it.  I think I'm gonna puke on my dog anyway so that I can put it up on Instagram.

That little Daisy David Duke broad Aaryn finally got kicked out of the house.  She kind of reminded me of a young version of Marge Schott, the deceased Cincinnati Reds owner who threw around N-bombs like a liquored-up priest giving out indulgences and hand jobs.

The season has lacked a lot of drama, especially on Thursday nights.  It's sad when you get more plot twists and better story-lines out of Jeff Foxworthy's "American Bible Challenge" (a real fucking game show that I recently stumbled upon all high an' shit.  It features three-person teams who play in a knock-down battle to see who knows the most about the Bible.  I felt like I was on acid when I saw three sassy women who went by the name "Preachin' Divas" start high-fiving after exclaiming "Ezekiel!").  


Maybe this week something good will happen...like a large asteroid hitting the Big Brother house.  That would be a weird way to go.  You're sitting there, eating some slop, and a giant fucking space rock slams into the kitchen and rips Gina Marie's head right the fuck off.  A part of you would have to be thinking, "Wow, the special effects for these P.O.V. competitions have really improved.  I mean, it REALLY looks like 'GM' has just been decapitated.  Cool."

Shit, not even Zing-bot was good this year.  I can't believe I just wrote that fucking sentence.

So enjoy the rest of the season at your own peril, ladies and gentlemen.  As for me, I just vomited on my Pomeranian.  What?  I told you I was gonna do it.
