Big Brother Season 15, Episode 23 Recap

It’s a pretty straightforward episode tonight. A little blonde hated by America is again in the HOH, and her nominations are pretty much sewn up by a pre-live show tantrum. Also, an embarrassing video package of another pair’s exchange of rings. Or so we’re led to believe.

We start off with a look back at Jessie’s eviction. Amanda is happy, and brags about “having a hand in every single eviction”, and hopes to have the same influence “on every single person who will be” sent packing. Jessie is seen hugging Helen, who hopes that the rest of the house believes her word over Jessie’s. Spencer says what he says on every Sunday’s show - he’s happy to be saved again but doesn’t want to be nominated ever again. He does think he’s in a good position. Jessie finally hugs Andy, who says he loves her, and she’s out the door.

Spencer thanks them all as they watch her picture go black, and then Andy walks away crying. He says it wasn’t a “personal vendetta”, but it was good for his game. She was a good friend, though, so he’s sad she’s gone.

We move on to Aaryn’s victory over Amanda in the HOH contest. Aaryn says in the diary room that it’s great to win, but it’s also “really scary because every time a big move needs to be made in this game, I’m the person people go to”. GinaMarie makes her nightly cameo, saying that even though they have their fights, they’re like sisters. I have no idea what that means, but they do have an hour to fill.

Amanda, though, is upset. “I can’t win anything!” She starts bitching to McCrae, who says that since it was musical he thought she’d win. Amanda just can’t handle pressure, though, and McCrae makes the mistake of saying he’ll never throw another competition. Amanda responds that “just the fact you’re saying that means you don’t trust her”. He doesn’t trust anybody, he replies. She then jumps up, and starts crying. “You don’t need to rub it in. I know. I know I suck.” McCrae says that he needs to start trusting the “next best person out there”.

The funny music comes up as Amanda hides behind a garbage can in the storage room to cry. Meanwhile, Spencer and GinaMarie talk about how she’s a sore loser. “I hope he fucking loses this whole...she’s just going to fucking ruin his life”.

Elissa and Helen are now lounging in the cockpit room. Helen whispers to her that she shouldn’t worry, as “you have the votes to stay”. In the diary room, Elissa mumbles out the most obvious statement of the show - “Aaryn winning HOH is not good for my game”. Really, Sherlock? Elissa tells Helen that she’s worried that Aaryn will put both of them up. “She won’t”, replies Helen, which makes this writer giggle. Elissa then says it could be her versus Amanda, as we get another shot of Amanda behind the garbage can. Helen tells Elissa to go talk to Aaryn, but she doesn’t want to do that.

Instead, Helen does it for her. As she walks across the set, we get to listen to an overly-extended diatribe on how Helen is going to work her magic on Aaryn. Out of the blue, Helen grabs Aaryn by the arm and tells her that she won on her own, and shouldn’t feel bad for her own success. Aaryn gives her a “bitch, please”, while Helen continues on her cheerleading act. “I am so amazed by you.” Seriously, this is idiotic, although Aaryn says in the diary room that she enjoyed the “turn your frown upside down, girlfriend” chat.

Poor McCrae is still trying to make Amanda feel better, and she claims that after a bit of alone time she’s ready to “target my next victim”. She tells McCrae that it was better that neither of them won, as they’re becoming a huge target. “She needs to put up Elissa and Helen”, with Helen going home.

McCrae heads into the cockpit room to talk to Aaryn, who says she’s putting up Elissa and Spencer. She says that’s the best move for her, but McCrae warns her that Amanda is going to say Helen instead of Spencer...at the exact moment that Amanda walks in. She explains that if Helen isn’t put up, if she wins veto then neither her nor Elissa will go home. Aaryn is worried that they’re going to know the three of them are working together, so McCrae walks out.

After he’s gone, Amanda tells her to make Helen believe Elissa is actually her target. Andy then walks in, and Aaryn says in the diary room that she’s not exactly excited about the “blood” that comes with putting up Helen. Andy, though, is all for the Helen/Elissa noms.

We sit through some commercials before some filler. It’s all about how hard it is for 3 AM to get together without anybody noticing. So they all have roles - Amanda is the Mastermind, Andy is the Agent who makes deals, Aaryn is the beast because “I get things done”, and McCrae is somehow the Enforcer. “It’s ironic”, he says, but Aaryn says it’s because everybody trusts him.

Speaking of filler, it’s time for the HOH reveal. Ugh, this sucks. I”m as excited as Elissa.

With that idiocy over, Helen is again telling Elissa that she needs to talk to Aaryn. Elissa doesn’t want to talk to anybody she doesn’t care for. “I’m really not sure that talking with Aaryn is worth my time.” Helen is pissed. Elissa goes on about how she misses her kid, and Elissa reminds her that it’s the same situation with her. Elissa also says that if she’s evicted, she’s not going to jury. She’s going home, instead. Now Helen is really pissed. “So if I make it to the end, you’re not there to vote for me?” Elissa’s response is to stare. That’s it.

Funny how they’re not showing how Elissa snubbed Aaryn and GinaMarie right before the last eviction show. That’s really what this is all about.

Helen finally walks away from Elissa, and turns on her tear ducts before walking into the HOH room to fight their battle. She’s still pissed at Elissa, because she has done so much for her. Finally, Helen walks in, and Andy asks her how Elissa is doing. Then it all starts. Sorry, but despite what Helen says in the diary room, these tears are fake. Helen goes on about Elissa’s plan to not go to jury, and how that means she’ll lose her vote. Sorry, Helen, but that is the wrong thing to say, although they all pretend to feel concerned. Plus, it gives them all an open opportunity to bitch about her...especially GinaMarie. “Helen, don’t cry”, says Amanda with a smile in the diary room. “Elissa’s not the target. You are.”

It’s now time for the Have-Not competition. There’s a black box, and the teams with the fastest time wins. That’s the only description you’re getting from me, because I don’t really care. The end result is that the girls (minus Aaryn) are Have-Nots.

Back to the real game. Oh wait, it’s more filler, as Helen talks to GinaMarie about her background. Complete with uplifting music, until GinaMarie says something stupid. Ugh.

Ok, we’re now back, and Elissa is now apologizing and sucking up to Aaryn. It just doesn’t work for her, though. Maybe she was right in telling Helen that it was a waste of time. Elissa can’t grovel. She can’t give praise. She can only do what is good for herself, although saving herself would be good for her. Which is why this apology turns into Elissa complaining about her stupid yoga mat. Oh well.

This is followed by Helen asking Andy to leave the room so she can talk to Aaryn. She says she knows that Elissa is going up, and Aaryn says that she doesn’t care if Elissa or Spencer goes home. This isn’t good news for Helen, who claims that she would not use the veto if those two were on the block. Aaryn again tells us in the diary room that Helen is her favorite person in the world, but “nobody comes between her and 3 A.M.” Ewwwww, CBS, why did you feed her that awful line?

So here we are with the nominations. Will it be Elissa and Spencer? Or Elissa and Helen? Or none of the above? As we watch Aaryn put in the keys, we’re led to believe it could by any combo of the three people.

They’re all called in, and the first key pulled belongs to GinaMarie, followed by Spencer, Amanda, McCrae and Andy. Yes, Elissa and Helen are nominated. Aaryn says she nominated them both because they’re a “power duo” that will come after her “power duo”.

Spencer, of course, is beaming because for the first time in weeks he’s not nominated. Elissa seems to be reading a script as she complains that she hates being on the block, and doesn’t want to lose her partner, Helen. Surprisingly, Helen is upbeat, saying that she “trusts” Aaryn, but she “doesn’t take anything for granted. Even close friendships.” Amanda ends the segment by happily bragging that everything is going her way, and she just loves a “good old fashioned blindside”. Well, you’ll have to keep your big mouth shut for that to happen.

That’s all, folks. What did you think of tonight’s episode? Are you happy with the nominations? Or the sight of Amanda behind a garbage can? At least we didn't have her embarrassing "wedding", as we were told we'd see. Tell us. Tell us now!

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!
