Big Brother Gossip Show #309: STFU Helen

What a nutty week! We had Jessie's infamous rampage, Elissa's snubbing of Aaryn and GinaMarie, and Helen turning up the tear ducts in an effort to save not only herself but Elissa. We cover it all, along with nominations, Have-Nots, and the veto competition results. Plus, we talk a bit about the glory of Big Brother UK and Big Brother Australia. 

Grab this great episode from the usual sources, or...

A special thanks to everybody who participated in the chat, even if you didn't agree with a word we said! Thanks must go to all who have supported this silly little show, and to Ash for her great work on the clips! Seriously, she did excellent work on the Jessie and Elissa mashups! Also thanks to the great contributions from my cohosts Mike and Colette!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 21 Recap

I’m not going to lie. I almost skipped tonight’s episode, as it covers a time period where NOTHING happened. I mean absolutely nothing. Sure, there was a veto competition, but the results are truly anti-climatic. Expect lots of filler. Lots and lots of filler.

As we always do on Wednesday night, we begin with reactions to Andy’s nominations of Jessie and Spencer. Andy explains in the diary room that his target is Jessie, as she has gone after people he is aligned with, and Spencer is somebody that nobody will vote out. Jessie whines about how many times she’s been nominated, and hopes to win the veto so “Andy can put up Amanda or somebody to make a big game move this week”. Spencer’s also not happy, but “I’m kind of used to this position. My game plan this week is to be cool, be friendly, be funny.” Amanda is happy, as “Jessie is my main target this week...I don’t trust her.” Helen is heard telling Andy his speech was great, but she’s disappointed in his nominations. “I was really hoping he’d put up McCranda.”

I need to go off-script here for a second. While we all wish the feeds would have been more exciting this week, Helen is completely wrong here. Andy making a big move would have not helped HIS game at all. It would have just helped her.

Andy is in a great spot. His pop-in method of playing is working wonders, as he’s a trusted member of both of the main alliances. Doing what Helen (or Amanda, for that matter) would have caused him to draw a line in the sand. Putting up two forgettable people sets him up perfectly for a run to the end. Whichever side loses a person next week will be the deciding factor as to who he runs with, and his HOH ends with only one person mad at him - the evicted person.

Everybody is now in the kitchen, and Andy asks to talk to Spencer. Once up in the cockpit, he tells Spencer not to worry. Spencer says he just wants to get through the week, but “I trust you”. In the diary room, though, Spencer says “I don’t trust anybody at all. Period. I just have to sit up on the block, be cool, and hope Andy is telling me the truth.”

Now in the HOH, Andy is telling Jessie that he wants to come out of this HOH with “no blood on my hands”. He tells her that she’s not his target. “Hopefully, it will benefit you.” What a crock of shit! Jessie says she wants to work with Jessie.

In the Have-Not room, Amanda is telling Aaryn that Jessie has to go because “she would vote me or McCrae out”. Aaryn says ok, and then Andy walks in...followed by McCrae. Amanda wants the four of them to solidify a final four alliance. She doesn’t want anybody to know what they’re doing, though. Aaryn agrees that these guys can get her farther than anything Helen can do.

Of course, they have to come up with a name...and we already aired this audio on last week’s Big Brother Gossip Show. Amanda doesn’t care, she says the finals “is between me and my pizza boy”. After a number of misfires, they decide to call it 3 A.M.

Helen is now up in the HOH with Andy. He asks if it was a good decision, and Helen says it was a “safe” decision. “You know me. I’m guns blazing.” Wait, what? Since when? Oh yeah, when it’s somebody else’s HOH. “You’re not going to ruffle any feathers with this move.” In the diary room, Helen says she’s not so trustworthy with now. “Something doesn’t smell like with Andy’s nominations.” She is worried that she’ll be blindsided. Andy is also a bit worried that she’ll find out he’s “more Team McCranda than Team Helen”.

Helen moves on to Elissa, asking her what she thinks of Andy’s nominations. Why would you ask silly Elissa anything? “I think it’s good”, she says. Helen doesn’t agree, as “it’s not a very big game move”. Elissa suggests they talk to Andy about backdooring Amanda or McCrae. “He’s not up for it”, she replies, wondering if he’s loyal to them.

Andy now asks Amanda and McCrae about his moves, and complains how Helen was badgering him about making a big move. Amanda’s suggestion is for him and McCrae to make a fake alliance with Helen, “because she won’t put up her own alliance members, will she?” Andy’s suggestion is that McCrae make that approach. Andy thinks this could be the move that propels him to the win.

When we return from a break, McCrae is doing just that. He pulls Helen into the cockpit room, and asks Helen about her views on McCranda. He claims that if it was the three of them at the end, he’d have no problem dumping Amanda. Oh, this (heavily-edited) segment is right up Helen’s batshit crazy ideas. McCrae tells her that he thinks Andy plays the same kind of game as they do, and she says she’s open to that. She even thanks him for coming to her with this plan! “He’s finally woken up. He’s realized that if he is to win this game, he has to cut her loose.”

It’s now the time we find out who is playing the veto competition. Besides the nominees and Andy, the additional players are Helen, Elissa, and Amanda. Jessie is not happy with that selection. The host will be McCrae.

Before we get to the comp, though, Helen pulls Andy aside for a chat with her and McCrae. She throws out the final three idea, and Andy smiles. Andy pretends to be shocked that McCrae is in to this idea, and hopes “that my acting job is as good as I think it is”. McCrae also piles it on, saying how much better Amanda is at everything. He even adds that he wants either Andy or Helen to be the one to give Amanda the boot.

Then the music slows down, as Amanda walks in! She’s all fired up about the veto competition, and Helen goes on about how they need to make sure Jessie or Spencer doesn’t win. Andy then makes a silly comment about how the three of them (Helen, Amanda, McCrae) are the people he’s the most comfortable with in the house. They then talk about the counting competition, and if that is today’s game how they should go about winning it. The plan is to let Helen win. They bring Spencer in...but honestly, I’m bowing out on this conversation. If this week wasn’t so slow, we wouldn’t be going this deep into it. At least Spencer isn’t on board with the idea of throwing it.

Another set of promos burned, it’s now time for the veto comp...and guess what, it is the “counting” game. Set up like a horror movie set (of sorts), they get a few minutes to count various items.

Questions are then asked, and after making a guess they get to “hold” or “fold”. We have to listen to some dumb commentary before we get to see the first set of answers. The plan goes as they directed, as everybody but Helen folds. Helen wins the first ticket.

For the second round, everybody but Helen again folds. She’s now one away from winning. the plan seems to be working. For the third round, Spencer decides to not to throw the round...and he knocks out Helen! Good for you, buddy. Amanda’s not happy, though. “Oops.”

Wow, they’re really struggling to fill this hour, as we get this lengthy idiotic description of math from Elissa. Really, CBS? Amanda, Elissa, and Andy stay in this round, and Andy gets the ticket this time, with Amanda eliminated. Yes, she’s still pissed. “I don’t even know if I want Jessie gone.”

For the next round, Spencer is the only one to fold. Jessie, who picked a huge number, is out, and Elissa gets this ticket. Yes, she’s an idiot. There’s no reason to carry on here. Andy ends up winning the last question, and the veto. Oh yeah, and dummy Elissa folded on the last hand.

They stretch it even more by having people babble after the veto comp is over. This person wants this, and that person wants that. Seriously, there’s no need for it. Let’s just get to Amanda bitching about Spencer not following the plan. Andy now wants to figure out which of the two are the more dangerous. Spencer is harder to read than Ms. Obvious Jessie. “I just want to make sure we’re making the right moves.”

Spencer now comes into the room, and it’s awkward. He asks Amanda if he’s pissed, and she denies it before finally admitting that she was. He says that he was stressed out during that competition, and claims he would not have used it if he had won. Then Jessie shows up, telling them that alcohol has arrived. As they all wander out, Andy has Amanda hold back, and they talk about Spencer’s lame excuse. “We really need to keep an eye on him”, says Andy. “He will say and do anything.”

Jessie now in the HOH with Andy, and she talks about how four people are making all of the “decisions in the house”. If he was to make his move now, he’d be the top dog in the house. She would have his back if he did just that. “You would change the game.” He asks for time to think about it.

Helen now grabs McCrae to talk in the storage room. She wants to verify that their earlier conversation is not to be told to anybody, and that Amanda may need to be cut loose before the final four. McCrae says in the diary room that this is a huge red flag, and they may need to get rid of Helen earlier than originally planned. McCrae reports to Amanda this conversation, and she takes it more calmly than one would normally expect. No fireworks. None.

After one final commercial break, we have a “3 A.M.” meeting. Funny thing, though. They have to blur Amanda’s ass as her pants are riding a bit low. Amanda reports what Helen said to McCrae, and that they have to go after Helen. This is helpful to create some fake footage about Andy actually thinking about using the veto. He actually never gave it a single thought.

Finally, this long hour is over. Andy puts on the veto necklace, calls everybody in, and decides to NOT use it. Shocker! Ok, it was funny that Spencer basically called Andy a dummy. Again, it leads to fakery about who may go home tomorrow.

So that’s it. At least there weren’t any frivolous segments, like the wacky things GinaMarie says. Or Amanda and McCrae’s engagement or wedding. Or Helen’s life stories. Anyway, any thoughts on tonight’s episode? Did anything stand out as interesting? Or were you as bored as I was? Tell us!

Revenge of the Semi-Pretty

If you missed last night's theatrics, Jessie is up to her tricks again. The daytime edition is just as humorous as last night, as she's just babbling non-stop about everybody who has sinned against her. In other words, the whole house. She's gone after Aaryn, and is waiting for her moments with Elissa and Helen. Surprisingly, Amanda has patiently listened to her stories. 

Meanwhile, Helen is freaking out. She honestly thinks that those with an axe to grind may come hunt her down after the season is over. I don't mean figuratively, either. She honestly believes Jessie and Judd are mentally unbalanced, and may murder her. You can't make this shit up!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 20 Recap

Throughout the years, a good percentage of the post-double eviction show is basically a recap of what happened during that frantic hour. We’ll see more of the behind-the-scenes maneuvering that led to Candice and Judd’s evictions, along with lots of diary room commentary.

There will also be a late-night HOH competition, and some maneuvering that led to new nominations. It’s not going to be the most vital show of the season, but there should be plenty of intriguing commentary.

So we begin tonight with the Candice/GinaMarie fight. This time, we get it with GinaMarie’s mic on, as she keeps babbling her “thirty seconds is up” as Candice continues to berate her. In the diary room, GinaMarie claims that this shows that Candice is exactly like she had “called her out on”. Not really, you dumb twit.

The voting begins, and Candice is still shooting daggers at GinaMarie. Spencer says that the double eviction alone is crazy, but this situation is really “turning it into a madhouse”. “You can dish it, but you can’t take it”, Candice singsongs as Aaryn rolls her eyes. “You defamed me, so I can defame you.” Oh God, this is silly on both ends...and Andy agrees.

For a few seconds, I have to admit that Candice is actually looking worse than GinaMarie...until GinaMarie throws out a line about her mother wanting her. No, this isn’t as Candice was walking out the door. This is still during the vote. Even Aaryn is shocked. “I’m afraid that her actions are going to reflect on me and hurt my game.”

Finally, Spencer even tries to get the two to stop. Helen also has to put in her two cents, although I do agree with what she’s saying.

Candice is then evicted, and GinaMarie says “should I say to get to stepping now?” Amanda adds that she doesn’t mind this going on, as it doesn’t affect her. “Hold on. Let me get the door for you”, GinaMarie calls out. Elissa makes it all about her, as she can relate to how “hard” Candice has had it, and says she’s sad to see her go.

Kissing everybody as she gets to the door, GinaMarie is waiting. Yep, it’s a repeat of the “mother” line. “My mom likes me, unlike yours.” As they walk away, GinaMarie shouts out that “she wants to do low blows. I can do low blows, too.”

We now move on to Aaryn’s quick HOH win. GinaMarie is the first to congratulate her, and Aaryn admits that she didn’t really want to win. Jessie couldn’t be more bummed about this, as she knows she will be going up.

Everybody heads inside, and Judd is the first to get to her. Spencer wants to know what she’s going to do, and Aaryn says everybody wants Jessie out. Spencer asks if he’s going up, and Aaryn says while she wants to put up GinaMarie, “I can’t.” Andy suggests putting her up as a replacement.

Ultimately, Spencer and Jessie are put up, and Spencer is pissed how he’s told all the time that he’s safe. Jessie says it’s “very, very scary”, and the veto comp is her last chance of safety. Well, she obviously fails, as Aaryn again wins. At this point, Aaryn says she’s happy that she’ll be sending Jessie to jury.

Helen immediately gets in Aaryn’s ear, and asks if they can backdoor Judd. She doesn’t want anything to do with that as Judd comes up to hug her. Helen explains that Judd has been a target for quite some time, and we get a recap of the “evidence” that is ultimately all in Helen and Amanda’s minds.

Aaryn convenes with Jessie while a number of others are chatting in the bedroom. “When I’m done, I want to talk to everybody”, she says as her and Jessie storm by. “If I take you off the block, you cannot fuck me, Jessie”, says Aaryn. Jessie says she will never come after her. “Okay. Send them in.”

Helen comes in with the names of people that will ensure her safety. She wants to take out a “big fish”, and she goes on and on with her analysis. “You have the votes”, says Helen.

In the kitchen, Judd is asking if he needs to go beg for votes. Amanda and McCrae frown at him like he shouldn’t be so silly. Meanwhile, GinaMarie is brought into the room to inform her of the Judd decision. Judd then walks in, and asks if they’re keeping Jessie. “No”, says Helen.

Amanda and McCrae now bring Spencer into a room, and tell him to just go with the flow “if the veto gets used”. Amanda tells him to vote out the replacement nominee if it is him the veto is used on. Of course, Spencer agrees to everything.

Andy comes in, followed by Judd, who now knows what is going on. “Don’t listen to that, Andy. I heard at the door.” Ok, maybe he doesn’t know everything but he’s scrambling. McCrae says that Judd believes they’re all talking about saving Jessie, but it’s actually about evicting him. “It feels icky”, adds Andy. McCrae adds that he’s “fucking heartbroken”.

Then we get to see the move of replacing Jessie with Judd. He’s gobsmacked. Aaryn says that if she didn’t do that, she’d be going home. As Julie goes to commercial, Judd says that he wasn’t playing Aaryn. Helen tries to stop him, but Judd says he’d be willing to bargain with anybody. Aaryn starts crying, and Judd keeps begging.

Helen jumps in and tells Aaryn she’s amazing, and that she’s “going to win this game”. Don’t go too far. Andy also breaks down as Judd continues to plead. Amanda asks if he’s MVP, and he denies it. “Elissa has always been MVP.” Amanda also starts crying, reminding him that it’s just a game. “I really love you.” Judd then starts in on Jessie, saying the “snake always wins the game”.

Judd is then evicted, and Jessie says that she’s happy that she didn’t leave the game. Amanda still thinks he’s MVP. “Great BB players don’t miss their shot.” Elissa, though, is upset that Judd wouldn’t hug her. “It’s a slap in the face.” Funny how the rare Elissa quotes in the last few episodes have just been about her self. We hear her tell Judd that this had nothing to do with her, and Judd also says he doesn’t want to hug Helen. He hugs Aaryn, and whispers “it’s not true”. She says she feels horrible, and he wanted to be here “more than a lot of people”.

Judd is gone, and half the house is in tears. Amanda still thinks he was MVP. Helen says “at least he’s going to jury”. Yes, Helen we know that’s all you care about. Judd got his dream of being in the jury. Oh wait, that’s what you think is Spencer’s dream.

After commercials, Aaryn is still upset over what just happend. She says it shows “just how quickly things can change” in the Big Brother house. “You can never feel too comfortable.” Busybody Helen comes in with fake tears to help her feel better. “This is the biggest game move this season...you are Janelle, dude.” No, she’s not. “For once in this game, no one is after you.” Ugh, she sucks.

McCrae is also crying in the photo booth, and he’s joined by Andy. McCrae complains that Judd was his best friend in the house, and he’s surprised he feels this strongly. “I’m a big wussy, I guess.” Amanda then pulls Aaryn into the have-not room, and hugs her saying that her and McCrae will never doubt her again. “He was scary in this game.” She thinks that the three of them and Andy will make the final four. In the diary room, Aaryn says she thinks that feels the greatest trust in Helen, but she says she “needs” to agree to this deal. They walk out, with Aaryn asking for some wine.

Ok, enough with the tears. Amanda, McCrae, and Andy are still bawling, telling themselves this was for the best. ENOUGH!!!! This is a televised game show! Oh God, now Helen and others join the crowd before Andy walks off to cry by himself. The rest of the house joins them, and Helen carries on with her cheerleading. Spencer, though, is kind of turned off by what happened. “They were like wild hogs eating one another.”

We then jump to the HOH competition, and it’s set up like a 50’s malt shop. They have to land their “cherry” on top of a “sundae” by tilting the “banana”. It’s a knock-out type competition, and the first to get the cherry in is the winner of the round. The HOH winner also gets to pick the week’s Have-Nots.

The first match is Helen versus Jessie, but we have to wait until after a commercial break. Jessie wins, but neither were great at it. Andy versus GianMarie is the second match, and Andy wins (obviously). Amanda then beats Spencer, and McCrae defeats Elissa (who complains that “McCrae was totally distracting me”) to end the first round.

The second round starts with Jessie versus Andy, with Andy winning. Amanda then has to go against her man, and McCrae’s ball hits just before Amanda’s gets to the sundae. She starts bawling, because he should have thrown it for her. “Jeff did it for Jordan. Brendon did it for Rachel, but McCrae doesn’t do it for Amanda.” Oh, come on.

The final match is Andy versus McCrae, and Andy is thriving in the diary room. For once, he’s actually part of the competition instead of just pithy commentary about it. It’s over pretty quickly, as Andy is now the new HOH! He has to pick Have-Nots, but Helen, GinaMarie, Aaryn, and Elissa volunteer. “In the spirit of Aaryn the Good Witch, I must take one for the team.” Oh boy.

Afterwards, Amanda starts bitching at McCrae about him not throwing the competition. “I was barely trying”, he says. She’s bawling about how she wants pictures from home.

We’re running out of time before the end of the show, but we have to have more of head mom Helen. She’s now consoling Amanda, and says that they’re all still there because of Amanda. “You have played an amazing game. You’re winning without having to win.” Ugh, she’s so full of shit! Andy then comes in, and she carries on about how she’s the only person who hasn’t won anything. She finally storms off, and Jessie says she “needs to get over it. Stop throwing a pity party for yourself, and move on.” She doesn’t, though, and is still crying as McCrae is in the shower. They hug, and he talks about how they have controlled everything that has gone on in the house. He reminds her that they should still be safe with Andy as HOH.

Andy is now in the HOH with Helen, and he tells her that he’s putting up Jessie and Spencer. Helen doesn’t like this, and almost commands him to put up Amanda and McCrae. The edit doesn’t quite show it accurately, but she did her usual method of “blah blah blah I love you and support you” but “blah blah blah this is what you should do” mind tricks. The edit makes it look like Andy is paying attention to her logic, but he’s really not. There was never a moment when Andy was going to do HELEN’s big move.

It is now that time, and after the usual diary room commentary, Andy calls everybody into the house. The first key pulled belongs to GinaMarie, followed by Helen, McCrae, Aaryn (“Poopy”), Amanda, and Elissa. Spencer and Jessie are nominated! He says he “adores” both of them, but “on a strategic level”, this was what he needed to do.

Jessie says she’s not surprised as she’s “an easy target”, but vows to fight to stay in the house. Spencer says he needs to somehow get “inside” the house, but he thinks “something is going to look better for him soon”. Amanda is happy that she’s not in danger this week, and hopes that Jessie ends up in jury house with “J-U-Double Eviction”. Ugh Amanda. That’s a bad joke. I prefer the “semi-pretty”line. Helen, though, gives Andy a thumbs down, but is going to push for a McCrae or Amanda backdoor.

So that’s it! What did you think of tonight’s episode? DId the behind the scenes stuff change any of your opinions? What about Andy’s HOH win? Or Amanda’s temper tantrum? Tell us what you think!
