The Night Owl

McCrae won the veto!  The HGs competed in some kind of BB Bowling veto that involved spinning around a lot and throwing bowling balls.  They also got beer.  And McCrae won.  My hope was that he would be super excited about winning and staying in the game and that he would start trying to fit back in with people and save himself, but so far that hasn't happened at all.  For the most part he has been campaigning for Amanda and trying to help her campaign for herself.

For a good while after the veto, McCrae and Amanda both went in between napping and campaigning, but their campaigning mostly consisted of the same old tired arguments "Judd is bad"  "Elissa is bad"  "Keep us and we will be loyal till the end" and a lot of other things that still don't change the fact that they are an overt couple working as a pair in the house. 

When Amanda and  McCrae were not around, the Exterminators alliance decided it would probably be best to put Spencer up instead of Elissa so Elissa does not end up pissed off at them and they all know they will still vote out Amanda.  GinaMarie said that it wouldn't matter if Elissa convinced her that she had sex with Nick, she STILL wouldn't put her up against Amanda because they need Amanda to go.

Other than the campaigning, most of the afternoon was slow and most everyone was either tired out or drunk after the veto and many slept for quite a while.  When everyone started waking up again the house was on indoor lockdown because of a wedding playing loud music in the backyard.  They got  more alcohol and decided to play poker games.   Poker is always pretty dull for most of us watching, with the most interesting part of tonight's rounds being Andy losing and ending up in one of GinaMarie's outfits.

Andy and Judd had some short discussions here and there about how to proceed in the coming week if it's a double eviction (which it is).  They both feel it will be best if one of them wins to put up either McCrae against one of them and then if anyone wins veto put up Elissa, or put up Elissa against one of them and if someone comes off put up McCrae.  That way they only piss off both McCrae and Elissa if they have to, and one of them definitely goes home since their alliance will still control the votes.

Other than that it's been a super slow night and it's been FILLED with constant feed cuts every few seconds as Elissa and Amanda don't seem to be capable of going a full minute without singing or mentioning production once they have had a little alcohol.  So that's pretty much it. There is not much more to tell.

I'm happy with the veto results.  I'm excited to (hopefully) see Amanda walk out the door this week, and I would be even happier if Elissa followed right after her in the double eviction. Alternately, if McCrae doesn't actually start playing this week, I would be fine with him going too.  I'm sad that he made the choices he did in the game as I felt he had SO much potential to be a graet player when he came in. That's just my personal opinions/desires.  I expect to see Spencer or possibly Andy or Judd on the block next to Amanda on Monday, but none of them will be in danger of going home or getting voted out.   In between now and Thursday we should see a lot of ups and downs from Amanda as she swings between acceptance and campaigning.  Maybe she will make one last loud bang, or maybe she will just stay in bed all day, I don't really care either way.  As always, you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Well, GinaMarie did it.  Amanda and McCrae were put up on the block together today and the aftermath went just about the way most of us expected it to go.  First Amanda and McCrae ran to their bed to go talk about whose fault it was (Judd and Elissa of course) then Amanda marched to the HOH room.  Upon arriving in the HOH room, Amanda yelled at GinaMarie and told her that they were never coming after her and genuinely wanted to take her to the final four.  Amanda told her over and over and over and over that it didn't make sense to put the two of them up together.  GinaMarie kept her cool and told Amanda that it DID in fact make sense.  She told her they were a power duo and a couple. Two people playing the game together.  She told her she felt that this would make it a more even playing field to separate the two of them so they are not playing for each other. Amanda then told GinaMarie "You just fucked your own game.  You just fucked up! if Spencer or Andy win veto they will take one of us off the block and then whoever the replacement nominee is will go home!"  That sparked a fire in Judd who spoke up and said "So I guess we should all just pack our bags then and push you both to the end?"  Amanda hurled a few more insults and then ran downstairs to the have not room to cry and tell McCrae how she doesn't even want to be there anymore and how she can't live with these people.  She just wants to leave now!  She can't stand the idea of being apart from him (for two weeks).  etc.. etc... etc..

There was some more time spent in bed and then Amanda went off to find Andy in the storage room who she still believes is on her side and will take her off the block if he winse veto.  She started crying and talking about Elissa saying she couldn't stand to spend another week in the house with her "joker face" etc..  and Andy mosty just said "yeah, but don't give her what she wants.  Just try to squash it."  While they were talking, Elissa listened outside the door until Amanda got wise to her listening and tried to bust the door open on her.

Most of the rest of Amanda and McCrae's night was spent not saying anything other than comforting words to each other in their bed.  There was also a lot of laying in silence.  The only thing they did outside of that was go to the bathroom once, eat once, and Amanda went up to the HOH room crying and apologized to Judd, Elissa, Spencer, and GinaMarie saying she knows she is leaving and she loves all of them.  She asked them not to blame her actions on McCrae who so wants to be there.  The two of them still have no idea that McCrae is the target. They just assume that Amanda is the one going home...but really, they just laid in bed all night for the most part.  I was starting to think mirrors  might be needed to check for breath, but in the wee hours of the morning they popped up for a short but relatively normal chat/joke talk with Spencer, Andy, and Judd.

After the storage room event, Andy started to get really spooked about the idea of Elissa sending him out of the house after she started needling him about what he said to Amanda and why.  She acted suspicious and Andy talked to Spencer about it a while later.  He and Spencer agreed that if one of them got HOH they might need to put Elissa up next to one of their own alliance so they could get rid of her first and then just deal with Amanda next.  I'm not sure if Andy is still on that same page though as after some booze later on in the night, he and Elissa had a really long heart to heart and agreed that they totally trust each other.  I am sure he still wants her out, but I'm not sure if he wants her gone next or if his fears were eased.

While McCrae and Amanda laid in bed together, the other HGs drank, played Jenga, ate dinner, and cut up with each other.  They started calling Judd the "Slutty Chicken" because his chicken costume is now so ripped it won't stay on.  They teased GinaMarie about how broken she is now that her toe is broken along with her hurt back and finger.  And the night for the most part was relatively strategy talk free.

There WAS a little bit of gaming for a while between Spencer, Judd, and Andy in the cockpit.  Most of it was just going over what they already have about doing what they need to do in order to win veto and send McCrae  home, but a few new things popped up here and there. They decided that if McCrae or Amanda does win veto and come off the block, it would be a good idea for Spencer to be the replacement nominee so they can just vote out whichever of the two is left up and not piss Elissa off yet.  That way Elissa stays focused on getting out the other member of McCranda instead of getting mad at all of them for putting her up and coming after two members of The Exterminators.

That's pretty much it as far as the game talk went.  Now it's all up to vet and what happens after that.  Part of me kind of hopes that McCrae wins veto so that Amanda goes home instead, but that is from a personal standpoint as I do like McCrae more than her.  From a strategy point of view, it is better for Judd, GinaMarie, Spencer, and Andy to get rid of McCrae and leave Amanda begging to go to jury right after him.  After seeing the way Amanda acted today about the game and her worries about being on the block, I honestly think she may use the veto on McCrae if she wins it.  She is extremely worried about him going to jury first and being there with Jessie and Aaryn.

Either way, even if neither of them wins it, it should be an interesting day.  If Andy somehow accidentally wins it, he knows he is screwed.  He won't be able to use it because of the current alliance he is loyal to, but that could potentially turn Amanda on him and keep her from going after Elissa.  Anyone else who won will likely just be subjected to bartering by Amanda and McCrae to use it, but likely won't.  We shall just have to see how it plays out.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

GinaMarie is the new HOH!! But that almost seems inconsequential compared to everything else that has happened since then.  When the feeds came back after the HOH comp tonight Amanda was already in GinaMarie's ear telling her that she just HAS to put up Elissa and Judd.  GinaMarie did a good job of skirting her demands though and pretended to go along with her to an extent, but gave us plenty of eye rolls and other expressions into the camera when Amanda was not looking. 

Shortly after GinaMarie got away from Amanda, the Exterminator alliance celebrated in the storage room since they are now able to go through with their plan of keeping themselves safe this week and putting up Amanda and McCrae together.  After their small celebration it was time for Judd and Spencer to get their chicken costumes they won for being last in the HOH competition.

After the chicken costumes were revealed, GinaMarie was called to the DR to have her diary room session before the reveal of her HOH room.  While she was in there, all hell broke loose again between Elissa and Amanda.  Amanda technically started it this time by going into the house and calling Elissa a liar and basically following her around jabbing at her for various reasons.  I think this was mostly spawned because Amanda was so angry about Elissa's answer to Julie's question about their fight on the live show.  It didn't matter that Amanda started it though, Elissa gave as good as she got for the most part.  For the ENTIRE night, each time those 2 were anywhere near each other it turned into a poke and jab fest.  Elissa would talk about how much she "misses Aaryn" just to get Amanda riled up, and Amanda would go after Elissa being a mom blah blah blah...  There really isn't any point in me giving specifics of what they said when and where because we have all seen every comment over and over again this past week.

Meanwhile everyone else just tried to stay out of it and tried to avoid taking a side when Elissa or Amanda would come to them expecting them to side with them.  That is of course with the exception of McCrae who was on Amanda's side.  He did do a good bit of yelling at her to try to shut her up tonight though.  Judd and Andy had a discussion about how Amanda is driving them up the wall with antagonizing Elissa and then playing the victim and crying about it, but they both agreed that McCrae is probably the bigger threat and the one that will likely need to go this week if he doesn't win veto.

After the first real round of low blows, it was time for GinaMarie to get her HOH room.  She got pictures of Nick, a letter from her mom and step dad, and the usual goodies in her HOH basket.  Most everyone was happy for GM except for Amanda and Elissa who were too busy taking shots at each other, and then the stand off began.  Everywhere GinaMarie would go, Elissa would be 2 feet behind her, and 2 feet behind HER would be Amanda.  They eventually ended up in one of the most awkward HOH wait out fests I've ever seen.

For the record, neither Amanda nor Elissa won the wait it out contest. GinaMarie decided to leave the HOH first and go downstairs and while Elissa went to bed and Amanda was busy crying to McCrae outside about how Elissa "bullies" her and how tortured she is and how Elissa tortured Aaryn and how it's not fair, Judd, Andy, and Spencer made their way up to the HOH room with GinaMarie to have a small exterminators meeting and make sure they were all on the same page.

GinaMarie told them she was definitely putting up Amanda and McCrae, and they all agreed that they would like to get McCrae out this week if possible since he is the stronger competitor of the two.  There is also the fact that Amanda would really go off the deep end and just be a flailing loose cannon who probably would not be able to play very well if McCrae walks out the door.  They also all suspect a double eviction is coming this week, so they think even worse case scenario for them is Amanda or Elissa getting HOH, but they would still likely put each other on the block next to one of the Exterminators, and they can just vote out either Amanda or Elissa depending on which one is on the block.  They also all agree they will do whatever it takes to win veto to keep McCrae from coming down and keep GinaMarie from having to nominate Elissa and piss her off. 

While the meeting went on upstairs, Amanda sat downstairs still crying and bitching to McCrae about Elissa.  She really seems to have no idea whatsoever at this point that she and McCrae are going on the block.  Kudos to GinaMarie for her poker face, because Amanda truly believes that Elissa and Judd are going up.

After a while GinaMarie came outside and spoke with Amanda, McCrae and Andy.  Amanda tried to make a fake final 4 deal with them, and GinaMarie played it off as if she bought it.  Amanda then started asking again about who would be going up next to Elissa.  She wants Judd, but said that between Judd and Spencer she does not care which one goes up as long as it's Elissa.  GinaMarie played it off again and told them not to worry, that she sees what Elissa is doing by following her around etc..  And she isn't going to listen to her.

Everyone is kind of winding down and going to bed now.  I don't see anything else big happening tonight.  I personally am really excited about this week.  I think tomorrow's nominations are going to be a total blindside (possibly a first for this year) because Amanda and McCrae don't seem to have any idea at all that GinaMarie might put them up together, and they certainly have no idea that Spencer, Judd, Andy, and GM are working together.  There should be plenty of fireworks when they go up.  I'm excited for Judd that he has managed another week of safety provided he makes it through the double eviction this coming Thursday (and I think he has a good shot this time).  I'm happy about Andy's game and the way it is going.  He is breaking away from Amanda and McCrae at the perfect time for him.  They helped him get pretty far while he helped them also up to this point, but now he knows he has to play against people who are not coupled up and powerful, and he is easing into his new alliance very well.  I know people hate Andy for playing both sides, and I constantly get the "Andy is a rat and a snake and a floater" comments on twitter, but I feel that he is playing well and right now I am enjoying him.

I'm hoping GinaMarie tops her last nomination speech this week.  Her HOH's are always a little comical to me as she really is a cartoon parody of herself.  So here's to some great fireworks tomorrow afternoon when nominations happen.  Fire up your feeds and don't make any plans to go out or you might miss it.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

The veto ceremony took place today and as expected, Andy was put up on the block after Amanda pulled McCrae down.  Apparently there were some fireworks during the veto ceremony. Amanda used a Rachel line "No one comes between me and my man." *gags*  Elissa then told her something to the effect of "My sister would be ashamed that her words are coming out of your mouth."   Then Amanda said "sit down trash bag."  or something like that.  I'm sure we will see an edited version of it on the Weds show.

After the feeds returned, Amanda and McCrae followed through with the plan to tell Judd that the plan had always been to keep Andy.  Andy played dumb as if he did not know about it, and Judd struck a one week deal (that he later said he did not intend to keep) to not put up McCrae and Amanda if they would give him the same one week safety.   Amanda half heartedly continued to harass Elissa for a little while, but then ultimately gave up and went to bed for a good portion of the day. It's never so pleasant on the feeds as when The Beast is sleeping.

Aaryn at first gave up and told everyone she knew what was going on and she was just going to go out happy, but not more than an hour later she was spreading lies and bullshit as usual and trying to turn Amanda and McCrae on Spencer and Judd, Trying to turn Elissa on everyone, trying to turn GinaMarie on Amanda and McCrae etc.. and so on.   The only one who remotely believed her was of course Amanda who ate up everything Aaryn said about Judd. This means nothing though as she is still not voting Andy out of course.

While Amanda was sleeping, McCrae and Elissa got into a somewhat heated discussion about what was bothering them about each other.  They each had some good points and also some stupid ones.  The end result was basically them being more cordial to each other than before.

At some point during all of this Spencer and Andy made it into the cockpit to talk about how excited they are about their new alliance they formed last night.  For those that don't know, Andy, Judd, Spencer, and GinaMarie formed "The Exterminators" in the wee hours of the morning right after my last blog was posted.  The real question of course is where does Andy and Spencer's loyalty lie.  During this conversation they talked about wanting to go with The Exterminators more than Amanda and McCrae at this point.  They both agreed that Amanda has got to go.  Their plan as of now is to wait and see who gets HOH, and if it's Judd or GinaMarie, help them evict Amanda or McCrae.  If it's McCrae or Amanda, they will wait to see which one of their alliance (most likely Judd) is put up beside Elissa, and they will just vote out Elissa instead.  If either of them (Andy or Spencer) gets it, they will put up Amanda and McCrae with Amanda to go because they both feel like this would be a REALLY big move to have on your final 2 resume. Whether any of this will happen or not, I don't know. It's just what they are saying for now, and to be honest, it makes me SO happy that people are at least talking about getting out Amanda this coming week. More people than just Judd and GinaMarie I mean.

After McCrae talked to Elissa, he went and woke up Amanda to tell her all about their conversation.  Amanda got really mad that he was talking to/being nice to Elissa.  Then she cried of course.  Then she went on a rant about how she isn't playing a social game and just plans to win everything from here on out and that's how she will win the game with McCrae.  I literally laughed out loud at some of the stuff she was saying while crying.

None of this anger lasted that long though as Amanda and Elissa ended up making dinner together, and then much later in the night after some wine they hashed everything out and made theri respective apologies.  I don't think Elissa bought any of it...as she shouldn't, and I doubt Amanda bought any of it either, but there it is.  They said it...oh and Amanda cried.

Outside of all that, most of the night was spent listening to Aaryn campaign to no avail, and just having general chit chat.  Some played pool and some plucked their eyebrows.  Some hung out by the hot tub.  GinaMarie re-did her hair extensions...you get the idea.  It was pretty quiet.

As of now Andy is staying and Aaryn is going home.  I don't really see that changing.  Judd, Spencer, and GinaMarie seem completely solid in their new alliance, and I doubt Amanda or McCrae will try to flip it to keep Aaryn now that Aaryn is trying to turn the house against them and they know it.  Now we just have to wait until Thursday and hope someone gets a bug up their ass and causes some fireworks before then.  I think "Hurricane Poopie" (Aaryn) might have it in her, but we will just have to wait and see.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Another crazy day and relatively uneventful night in the BB 15 house. 

Judd started out the morning talking to Elissa for a really long time about why he did not want to work with Amanda and McCrae and his feelings on them in general.  He explained to her why he thought that the two of them needed people to work with and could possibly work with Spencer and Andy and GinaMarie so that they are not alone going into this next week etc..   Everything he said made sense and for the most part of the conversation Elissa was cool, but she was of course still adamant about wanting to put up Andy instead of GinaMarie.  Judd told her to do what she wanted to do, but that he just wanted to do what was best for them.  Keep in mind that Judd thinks Amanda and McCrae are voting Andy out and that GinaMarie is the swing vote. 

After Judd came downstairs, shit was immediately stirred when Aaryn told Andy that she knew for a fact Judd was upstairs telling Elissa to put him on the block instead of GinaMarie (completely false obviously).  Andy asked Judd about it and told him that he believed him over Aaryn, and judd went off to confront Aaryn.  He basically just called her on her bullshit and then walked away.  I cannot rave enough about how much I love Judd 2.0 that does not give a shit what Aaryn or Amanda think of him. 

Things seemed like they might calm down for a little while and I kind of wasn't paying attention until all of the sudden Elissa and McCrae were arguing because Elissa thought McCrae and Amanda had gone through or touched her things and stolen some balls from a comp from her.  Elissa had apparently moved some of McCrae's clothes so they would all be in the same place instead of spread out in different drawers.  They went tit for tat for a few minutes with a few biting comments to each other and then literally fought to get to the DR first to be the first one to ask if other HGs were allowed to touch each others things.  No it's not daycare, guys, it's BB 15. 

Never one to be left out of a fight, Amanda of course came outside to put her 2 cents in and started first telling Elissa that she is a bad mom and saying that her husband is 75 years old.  She then told her that "She should have been a blowjob but got stuck in the wrong hole".  Things pretty much went nuts from there.  Elissa kept laughing and went inside, but Amanda had bigger plans for the day. 

Amanda was and is still determined to try to get GinaMarie on the block so that she can keep Aaryn for herself (when really she doesn't have the votes either way.  Andy and Spencer confirmed many times and even told McCrae today that they would have to keep GinaMarie and that Aaryn has to go.).  So, Amanda dressed herself in some kind of makeup to make herself look like "New Years Granny" and went around blowing horns in Elissa's ear, and screaming random things about hating her and America hating her etc.. for the rest of the day.  It was all rather amusing in my opinion if not a little watered down and weak in comparison to people who have done similar things in seasons past. GinaMarie's face in the following picture is just a happy accident. I don't know what was being said to her.

After hours of Amanda putting ketchup on pads and blowing horns, we got trivia, and when the feeds returned Amanda was talking about how she had been told she had to cool it for a while.  The details are unclear, but apparently BB told her she can't do anything that makes Elissa feel afraid or threatened.  Amanda spent a good portion of the rest of the night reading the BB rule book to find out what she was and wasn't allowed to do to Elissa.

None of what Amanda was trying to accomplish worked.  Her plan was to have Andy comfort Elissa and that way Elissa would think he wasn't working with her and wouldn't put him on the block.  Elissa was unphased in the way of nominations though and still intends to put Andy up.  She went a step further when she came outside to talk to Andy and Spencer, and Andy told her that GinaMarie had refused to commit her vote to keeping him.  Elissa called GinaMarie outside in front of them plus Judd and asked her if she put up Andy would GinaMarie vote how she wanted.  GinaMarie said she would, and Elissa said "that's all I needed to know" then went inside her HOH and locked the door and wouldn't let Andy in.

Andy and Spencer agreed later on in the night that since the whole "Amanda and McCrae will vote him out" thing is fake and he has the votes to stay, it is probably better for him to go on the block than GinaMarie, because that way they can get rid of Aaryn without having to fight Amanda about it.  Andy even shut Judd down who was still trying to help him by telling him that he didn't want him to get himself nominated, so to not bother pushing Elissa anymore with the idea of putting up GinaMarie and just let her nominate him. 

Amanda and McCrae are of course still planning on keeping Andy at this point even though Amanda pulled this elaborate scheme and acted liek they were voting him out, so a good bit of their planning with Andy tonight was how to deal with Judd because obviously Aaryn will run to him and tell him that the plan was all fake.  So the plan is that after Andy goes up for nomination tomorrow, McCrae will pull Judd aside and let him know that the plan was all to try to save Andy from the block, and that Andy didn't know about it, and they were not sure if they could trust Judd yet, so they just let him go along with it.  This way Andy's hands stay clean, and it (in Amanda and McCrae's mind anyway) will build some trust back between Judd and McCrae.

Judd spent a good portion of his night talking with Andy and Spencer about what could happen in the coming weeks and just having general chit chat with them.  They all agree that Amanda and McCrae need to be split up.  Andy has added that he may have to get rid of Elissa first though as he is afraid after she gets rid of Aaryn, he will be her next target.  When Judd walked away a few times, Andy and Spencer both agreed that they might want to get rid of Elissa this coming week and then split up McCrae and Amanda, and then GinaMarie if they have any control at all in the coming weeks.  This is good news for Judd if either of them get power, but we all know the likelihood of that.  And yes, I am still aware of Andy's flip flops between being loyal to Amanda vs being loyal to Judd and Spencer.  Right now I think it could go either way depending on who gets HOH this coming week.

After things had mostly settled down and all were in their beds except Andy, Spencer, and Judd, GinaMarie could hear Aaryn still laughing and whispering with Amanda.  Aaryn really has played this whole thing with GinaMarie very VERY badly.  She knows that GinaMarie hates Amanda, but has not even tried to not tattle everything GM says to Amanda and spends most of her time trying to crawl up Amanda's ass.  I guess it got to be too much for GM, because she got out of bed and marched outside to the hammock clearly annoyed.  Judd, Spencer, and Andy all went to talk to her and she ranted for a really long time about Aaryn and the way she is being treated by her.  She hates that Aaryn chooses Amanda over her all the time and that Aaryn pits her against every EXCEPT Aaryn.  She brought up a lot of things and it was a pretty fiery rant, but I thought it was amusing to watch to say the least.  I kind of like fired up GM.  Spencer, Judd, and Andy all assured her that even if she was the one to go up instead of Andy, they would all keep her and boot Aaryn anyway.  They told her that they wanted to work with her and Judd told her he was on the same page with her wanting to split up Amanda and McCrae by getting rid of Amanda. 

Where GinaMarie's vote lies at this point is a TOTAL mystery, which is unusual for me as a feed watcher.  I usually know because each person usually has someone you can tell they are being truthful with.  I can't tell with GM though.  She told Aaryn and Amanda that people are stupid if they think she would ever vote against Aaryn, but she has promised her vote to Andy and promised Elissa that she will vote Aaryn out as well.  So who knows.  In the end it will only matter if Amanda and McCrae actually flip and try to oust Andy instead of booting Aaryn, which I am doubting will happen, but never say never..

Things are mostly winding down now and I think everyone will be heading to their beds soon.  I expect to see Andy put on the block in place of McCrae at the veto ceremony this morning barring anything strange happening to make Elissa shift her crazy eyes to a different target.  I'm pretty sure she is dead set on Andy and there is no changing it though.  We will have to wait until close to Thursday to see if Amanda gets her paranoia good and revved up and decides to take a stab at getting rid of Andy (which I could totally see happening).

The Night Owl

Crazy, Crazy, CRAZY!!  They are ALL out of their minds and have been at it nonstop for most of the day and night.  I don't even know how to begin explaining all that happened, so I will just try to hit the high (and really low) points.

When I fired up the feeds today the veto comp was already underway.  When the feeds returned we learned that it was the Zingbot veto comp and that Amanda had won.  I think we were all kind of expecting that to happen.  No, I do NOT think it was rigged. I just think that in BB, typically if a lot of the HGs don't want someone to win, they usually do. IE Elissa winning HOH this past week. I think this year may see the end of the Zingbot comps, or maybe they will just start doing them at a different time in the season, because this one was as rough as last year.  Last year the person wearing the Zingbot costume had a heat-stroke and fainted.  This year Judd threw up and had to be put on oxygen, and some of the others required oxygen and medical attention because they couldn't breathe.  Heat is not a friend to the Zingbot comps.

One would THINK that winning veto and being able to keep both herself and McCrae safe would make Amanda happy, but ohh no, not until she is in complete control of every move made by the HOH can she rest.  Amanda does not want anyone but Judd or GinaMarie going up next to Aaryn on the block because she wants to be able to keep Aaryn.  Elissa wants/wanted to put Andy up because she felt that Amanda and McCrae would not vote Andy out in order to keep Aaryn (which is true).  Amanda created an elaborate scheme to fool people. She marched up to the HOH and told Elissa that she HOPES she puts up Andy because no one else will, and that she is keeping Aaryn no matter what and so will McCrae.  She told Elissa that everyone likes Andy so this is the perfect opportunity to vote Andy out.  Elissa remained mostly unaffected and jus tkind of made fun of Amanda saying that to her face.  After Amanda went back outside, Elissa came down and saw her sitting and talking game with Andy.  She asked her if she was telling Andy her latest scheme to vote him out.  THe truth is, Amanda was in fact telling Andy that  he needed to act like she told him she was going to vote him out.  (it's already confusing and I just started).

Anyway, Andy ran into the house and went in the cockpit and started fake crying to Elissa and telling her that Amanda said she was going to vote him out, but the only way to make sure Aaryn went home was to ptu up GinaMarie.  Elissa told Andy she wasn't sure if he was just faking and in on the scheme or not, but that she didn't want him to go home, she just wanted to assure that Aaryn went home.

A little while after this, many fireworks happened here and there between Amanda and Elissa.  Elissa while giggling told Amanda that she threw the competition to her to help her stay safe (in order to annoy her).  Her plan worked, and Amanda got all fired up and started yelling about how ridiculous it was for anyone to say that etc...  Then she told Elissa that she looked plastic and started insulting her husband and kids etc... as Amanda does.   Elissa brought up Amanda telling everyone she was pregnant during the sequester time before the show, and asked her why she would still come on the show after losing a baby and then immediately hookup with someone who wasn't her boyfriend the first week.   Blows like this were exchanged throughout the night for a while until they got booze and they went into their separate groups to talk trash about each other to other people.  Amanda strutted around wearing the veto necklace while doing this...I just couldn't leave that part out.

At some point Judd talked first to Andy and Elissa up in the HOH room about making sure that Andy stayed if he went up.  Elissa told everyone she was convinced that GinaMarie would be voting out Aaryn with everyone else, and Judd even said he would offer GM is $5k to vote against Aaryn.  Andy was still nervous about the idea of going on the block though and also still playing it up for the two of them, and exited the HOH in kind of a huff.  Judd then talked to GinaMarie downstairs in front of Andy and started asking her if she would vote Aaryn out.  GinaMarie was non-committal about it (because she will never vote against Aaryn).  GinaMarie had also had a LOOOONG mind bending chat with Amanda during all the fighting, and was starting to distance herself from Elissa a little.  She told Judd "I can't vote out my BB bunny"  when it was just the 2 of them, and that got Judd thinking. What he did not realize is that what he was thinking is exactly the plan that Amanda wanted.

Judd went to Andy and Spencer and asked them if they would vote out Aaryn and they both said they would and swore to it.  Judd said maybe Elissa SHOULD put up GinaMarie since that's the only vote they are not sure about.  He ran the idea by Elissa and told her why.  She asked Andy and Spencer about their votes if she put up GM, and made them swear by them, and they all had a really REALLY long talk about all working together to get Amanda out of the house in the upcoming week. Everything SEEMED to be right on track.

Judd went outside where Amanda, McCrae, and Aaryn were trahsing Elissa by the hot tub, and Amanda tried to get into it with Judd, with Aaryn jumping in like the good lapdog that she is.  Amanda kept pointing out "you hate me. I can tell.  I didn't do anything to you that everyone else in this house didn't do.  It was Helen and Elissa that wanted this for you"  blah blah blah blah blah.  Judd wouldn't take the bait and just kept telling her he didn't want to bring up old wounds, but he did mention that he saw the tape where she smiled really big when Aaryn nominated him.  Aaryn kept throwing in something about how he had used the term "BB Bunny" in a condescending way towards her (WHAT?!).  So help me, it was the dumbest thing she has said since "the most offensive thing you can do to a Texan is sit on their hat." 

While this half argument was going on, Andy and Spencer talked to each other in the cockpit alone for a few minutes.  They agreed that they really DO want Aaryn gone this week and that they were just going to have to tell Amanda "Look, we are voting her out and that's just how it is."  Andy also told Spencer that truthfully he is leaning more towards working with Judd and Elissa than with Amanda and McCrae, and that if he got HOH he thinks he would have to put Amanda and McCrae up so they could get Amanda  out of the house, because it is time to cut her loose. They both agreed that even though they had been scared about Judd coming back in the house, they both feel now that it's the best thing that could have happened, and perfect timing for going after Amanda.

Judd went and talked to GinaMarie a little bit and told her he didn't know if she would go up or not, but that if she did, for her not to worry because she was staying.  He promised her he would never directly put her up and told her how grateful he was to her for being one of the only 2 people that did not want him out when he got evicted.  Aaryn came in and started telling lies and talking bullshit as usual (this really is all Aaryn does.  She mostly runs to Amanda and just makes things up out of nowhere.  It's really strange).  She told GinaMarie to go and have a chat with Elissa.

Judd went upstairs to tell Elissa what was going on  and warn her that Aaryn had told GinaMarie to come and have a conversation with her.  This is when Elissa lost her marbles again.  Elissa decided that Judd was working with Amanda/McCrae/Aaryn again.  I have NO idea where this came from, but she was clearly angry about it.  Judd tried to tell Elissa that wasn't the case and explained to her all the reasons he can't stand them now and wants Amanda out and wants Aaryn out.  Elissa wasn't having it.  Judd gave Elissa the gold coin he keeps with him that his mom gave him and told her that if he was lying she could keep it. Then Andy came in the room.  Andy confirmed everything Judd was saying about being anti-Amanda and Aaryn now and wanting to vote Aaryn out.  Elissa did not believe them and dismissed them from her room saying she was going to bed...but she didn't.

Elissa decided to hold court with GinaMarie and told her that Judd wants her up on the block SOOO bad because he wants Elissa and GM to turn against each other...which is NOT true at all.  Judd really wanted to work with GinaMarie, Elissa, Andy, and Spencer.   Elissa told GinaMarie that she is NOT putting her up, but that she is pretending she is going to and then she is putting Andy on the block anyway.  Putting Andy up won't send him home, Aaryn will still go, but Elissa's perception of what is happening is WAAAY off the map.  GinaMarie TOLD Elissa she will vote out Aaryn.  Whether she actually will or not, I don't know, but Amanda and McCrae are not going to vote Andy out, so really it won't matter in the end except that now Judd won't have the original support he did from GinaMarie and Elissa.

Spencer and Judd are still awake just talking about past things and about wanting Amanda out.  A few others are still awake as well, but things seem to be winding down for the night.  So much game happened tonight it's hard to keep up, and I LOVE it.  I am loving the fact that the feeds are not boring again. 

I know a lot of people tweeted me in anger about Judd working with Andy and Spencer tonight, but honestly, what could he do?  He can't just work alone with Elissa who can't play for the coming HOH, especially because she is bat shit crazy and stops trusting people out of nowhere for weird ass reasons.  He has to have someone, and he can't work with and doesn't want to work with Aaryn/Amanda/McCrae.  So there it is.  I think it was sort of a wise choice with his only mistake being telling Elissa to put up GM instead of Andy..which he really had good intentions about.

It's time for me to wind down now myself so I can gear up for another day of non-stop gaming.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Wow wow WOW!! What a night!!  I will try to gloss over the early day and evening stuff so I can get to the juicy bits for you.   Early in the day McCrae and Aaryn were nominated.  Elissa had stated to everyone that Aaryn was her target, but as I said before, I was hoping she had a bigger plan.  Elissa made a deal with Judd to work with him for as long as they could toward the end, and Elissa told him she was so happy he was back and confided in him her plans. 

Aaryn moped around knowing that she could quite possibly be going home, and despite everyone telling her to just be quiet and they have the votes to keep her, she still for some reason ran to the ONE person who wouldn't and couldn't help her....Amanda!  She told Amanda she was so pissed that Judd was back in the house and got his key. She told her she was sure that GinaMarie had a deal with Elissa (which she kind of does, but not the kind of deal Aaryn was thinking).  Amanda and Aaryn bitched and whined to each other and laid around for most of the evening.

While Amanda, Aaryn, and McCrae were laying around, GinaMarie had a very very long conversation about Aaryn and about Amanda.  Elissa told GinaMarie a lot of the things Aaryn has said about her and they both agreed for the most part that Amanda was a huge part, if not all of the problem between the girls in the house. 

Cut to a little while later and Elissa has a DR session.  when she came out of the DR session she caught Judd in the bathroom hallway and asked him what he thought about the idea of getting rid of Amanda instead.  He said he was on board.  She asked him if he thought it was a better idea than getting rid of Aaryn, and he said definitely.  So she sent him to go get Aaryn and send her up to the HOH room.

When Aaryn came into the HOH room, Elissa just came right out with it: "I think we should just put everything behind us and work together and get Amanda out."   She asked Aaryn if she would be on board and of course Aaryn said yes.  Elissa told her that she almost wanted to win the veto herself just to prove to Aaryn how serious she was, but that she still wanted Aaryn to fight like crazy for it.  They had a long talk in which Elissa told her that she felt like Amanda was the problem between the two of them and she really wanted to see if they could work together with Amanda out of the house and not in the middle of them.  It's honestly one of the only times I think I've ever seen Aaryn not scowling.

A little while after Aaryn found out about what was going on, she only had time to fill GinaMarie (who already knew) on a little bit of it when the feeds were cut to fish so they could draw players for the veto competition.  Elissa told Aaryn in their discussion that if she gets HG choice she could do whatever she wanted to, but that she might want to consider picking Judd over GM as he is a little stronger in competition and she knew for a fact Judd would take Aaryn off the block.  Earlier in the night Amanda had told Aaryn that she had to pick HER to play for her (why Amand though Aaryn would pick her is beyond me.  Yes, I pick you so you can play for you and yoru boyfriend and not me..).  While picking Amanda might be a smart move because she has yet to win anything, Aaryn went with Elissa's plan instead.  When the feeds returned, chaos had ensued.

Spencer was complaining because he did not get drawn. McCrae and Amanda were freaking out about Aaryn picking Judd to play for her.  Everyone was essentially going a little nuts.  Once Spencer calmed down, McCrae came into the cockpit to bitch about the situation and about how he didn't think Elissa looked happy when she drew Amanda's chip to play. Everyone was making their own argument for their own problem at once and also wondering if it would be a night comp or a morning comp.  I preferred the Judd response.

Just when all the boys in the cockpit were starting to get settled down, Amanda started her mad pacing through the house watching for anyone who might be talking game.  She passed by GinaMarie and Elissa drinking at the kitchen counter a few times and mean mugged them until Elissa finally spit her drink out (literally) in a fit of giggles.  This sent Amanda off.  She thought they were whispering to each other, and so she started yelling really loudly to Elissa that GinaMarie had talked more shit about her than anyone else in the house etc..  GinaMarie fought right back though with a "And you never said ANYTHING about her though, huh?"  It got louder and louder until all you could hear was GinaMarie yelling over Amanda, and Elissa took GM by the shoulders and told her to just stop because it was what Amanda wanted. 

Amanda and McCrae retreated to their bed so that Amanda could talk about how much she hates all the "phony ass kissers" in the house and talk about how she would never do that and how REAL she is. (lol I'm not even trying to be funny..this joke just makes itself).  GM came in and apologized for getting loud and told her that they really were just laughing at her pacing and making faces at them. 

Amanda still on a mission marched up to the HOH to "talk" to Elissa.  She started with her usually loop "I've been the only one there for you." "I saved you" "They hate you" "They are all terrible people and you only have me."  She ended in tears and sobs asking Elissa if she was going to be "backdoored (even though you can't be backdoored if you are playing in veto).  Elissa literally could not contain herself.  She started laughing and she couldn't stop.  A few times Elissa tried to hold in the idea of Amanda going up, but every time Amanda asked she kept bursting into giggles.  After a while of Amanda's ranting, Elissa told her she was going to bed and they would just have to talk about it later and sent Amanda and McCrae from the room.

Amanda of course started whining and complaining to McCrae, and Aaryn when she could find her about Elissa laughing at her.  She also kept trying to convince Aaryn that Aaryn needs to let HER win the veto so she can take McCrae off and then convince everyone to keep Aaryn

While Amanda went through her motions and loops, the rest of the house studied the memory wall together and speculated whether this would be "morphomatic" veto or "How bad do you want it" or something else.

Everyone has gone to bed now, but Aaryn halfway filled in Spencer on what the real plan really was before they went to bed, and Judd let Andy speculate without actually saying anything to him that it would really be the best for all of them if Amanda did not win veto and went home this week.

I really feel bad for McCrae.  The poor guy is on the block for the first time, but as per usually he is forced to try to calm his crazy ass girlfriend down and try to save both of their asses now that she is making so much noise.  At this point he is kind of stuck with her until she leaves because it would be too risky to jump ship just now without actually knowing what the plan is or having a sure fire parachute alliance. 

I do not think the veto will be tonight.  It may be early in the morning, or they may have just done the draw tonight because tension was high and they knew people would explode and lose it.  If the latter, I'm thankful they brought the entertainment.  If anyone playing in the veto (McCrae, Aaryn, Judd, Elissa, GinaMarie, Amanda) besides Amanda wins it, it looks like Amanda might actually be toast this week.  Elissa is nuts and I have no idea what she has in store or if she will keep her sights set on Amanda, but for now I like where this is headed.  Then again, the one person you don't want to win  always does, right?  Either way, this has been a fun evening to watch on the feeds.  There was also a lot of humor and entertainment in between that I didn't have time to write about (thank you Judd).  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Here's hoping things get even more nuts after veto tomorrow!! Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Wow, what a night! First off, "Guess who's back, back again!"  I could not be more excited that of the 4 people competing, Judd won the competition to get back into the house!

And just as the whole house didn't want Aaryn to win HOH when she stayed, but she did, they all did not want Elissa to win tonight, so of COURSE Elissa got HOH.

As soon as the HOH comp was over and everyone came inside, the HGs scattered to their various corners to talk about how unhappy they were with both the return of a HG and with Elissa getting HOH.  Amanda immediately started her same old loop. She pulled Andy and McCrae into the cockpit so she could talk about how she is still SURE Judd was MVP and he just HAS to go because he has been trying to get her out of the house for WEEKS now.  Andy was more than happy to jump in with about a million "it's not fair's" and McCrae agreed.  Amanda also went straight to Elissa to try to get Judd put on the block. Elissa flat out told Amanda she would not be putting up Judd.

Elissa did tell Amanda that she would definitely be putting up Aaryn and possibly McCrae next to Aaryn.  What she said out loud was that she wants someone on the block that can beat Aaryn in veto, and that she wants someone who will fight their heart out to keep Aaryn from getting it.  It's very possible that this is the case, but I'm hoping that Elissa has bigger plans.  Amanda ran straight to McCrae to talk to him about what Elissa told her.  Amanda started crying over how she didn't win HOH and how McCrae might be going on the block, and they both schemed about how to get GinaMarie put up so they could still vote out Aaryn but keep themselves safe.  They also schemed about what to tell Judd about his eviction and eventually decided to blame it all on Helen and tell him that Helen had been telling them that he was MVP and he was after her.

McCrae then pulled Elissa into the cockpit to tell her how "dumb" it would be to put him on the block next to Aaryn.  He told her he would do anything to win the veto anyway including shave his head, and made a pretty long and convincing, if not somewhat forceful argument.  For a while it seemed like Elissa bought it.  She told McCrae she would consider not putting him up, but that Aaryn MUST go and if she feels like ANYONE doesn't fight as hard as they can for the veto, she is putting that person up next to Aaryn.

  Then Elissa pulled Spencer into the have-not room.  She made the same threats about veto that she made to McCrae to Spencer and also made a deal with him for 2 weeks of safety if she didn't put him on the block and told him she would likely be putting up McCrae and Aaryn.  Spencer acted like he was cool with all of this but then ran to McCrae and Andy to report all that Elissa had said. 

During this time Aaryn (who I am sure knows the deal) mostly just laid around and looked like she might die, and Andy revived his old game of "pop goes the weasel" into every conversation he could fit himself into. 

Pretty late in the night Elissa got her HOH room.  She got her Yoga matt (though it wasn't the right kind) and pictures (though they were not the ones she wanted), Fake eyelashes (that she said she would NEVER wear), pictures her little boy drew for her, a necklace from her mother, A letter from Rachel, and a large bottle of Skinny Girl Tequila.  Aaryn was the first to say she was tired and leave the HOH.

Once Aaryn went downstairs, Andy eventually followed her so that he could talk to her.  He told her he did not want GinaMarie going up next to her and that he thought McCrae would probably be the one going up with her.  He told her that he would prefer that over GM going up.  Now, I don't know if Andy is totally serious about his final 3 with Aaryn and GM or if he is just saying things to her in case she comes off the block, but if he is serious, McCrae, or whoever takes that spot next to Aaryn tomorrow could actually be in trouble.

Not to be deterred from being able to control the nominations, Amanda wasted no time in snuggling right up to "her new best friend".  I'm hoping all of this has no affect at all on Elissa just like everything else anyone tells her.

It's very hard for me to tell if Elissa really does live on another planet, or if there are actually wheels turning, but here is what I am HOPING she is doing.  I am hoping she is trying to break up the two major duos still left in the house by putting one of each up (McCrae and Aaryn).  If Aaryn won veto I am hoping she would put up Amanda next to McCrae to break them up, or put up GinaMarie next to Aaryn if McCrae came down.  That way you break up one of the couples either way.  I'm not positive this is what she is doing, but it's the only thing that I think would make sense with the nominations she is making. 

At this point a lot of them are still awake and I'm not sure how much more game talk will happen tonight, but I THINK it's likely that Aaryn and McCrae will go on the block today with Aaryn being the target.  Elissa is a little different from all the previous HOH's though, and that could be subject to change..especially with Amanda and McCrae constantly in her ear.  It should be an interesting week depending on who goes up and who wins veto.  Elissa seems determined to make her HOH count (that's what Helen told her to do) so maybe a decent sized move will be made.

I'm SO happy Judd is back! I'm not an Elissa fan, but I'm happy to see the person they all did not want to win HOH actually get it, and if she sends out Amanda, all the better for me.  This has the potential to be an interesting week between all the paranoia, campaigning, and fighting.  I don't think it will go exactly as any one person has planned out...for once.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

After a very very eventful day, tonight wasn't really anything special.  We all know Elissa went crazy today, to avoid having to re-write the details of all that, you can just read Scott's blog about it here: http://www.bigbrothergossip.com/bbg/2013/8/21/crazy-elissa.html

Prior to Elissa's total insanity fest, most of the people in the house were targeting either Amanda or Amanda and McCrae for the upcoming week, but using "we are going after Elissa" as their cover story.  However, now that Elissa decided to sink her own ship, everyone actually is after her.  As mad as everyone is right now, I'm not even sure they will target the returning jury member over her, which in my mind is great. It would give whoever returns a week to re-integrate themselves in and try to form some bonds, make deals etc..  Instead of walking right back out the door the following Thursday.  Unless it's Helen, in which case she can walk right back out at any time.  PLEASE don't let it be Helen!! The only way I think Elissa will be able to be saved this week is 1.  The HGs do decide to just oust whoever comes back, 2. she wins HOH (in which case Aaryn and Spencer will go up or Aaryn and Amanda) or 3. She wins veto again.

Anyway, after all the big events of the day, for a long time it was just Elissa bashing and Movie talk.  Around midnight GinaMarie got very sad and started to cry in the cockpit.  It's her birthday and she is a have-not, plus she felt some of the others were making fun of her.  So, while she cried in the cockpit, the other HGs (minus Elissa) decided to toilet paper her bed and dress up in her clothes and throw a party to cheer her up.  GinaMarie gave a speech and they all talked about their favorite GM moments, and everyone was happy for a while.

After the party was over, there was some general chit chat and then the HGs (minus Helen and Elissa) started speculating about the coming HOH.  Amanda and McCrae do want Elissa out, but they are also after Aaryn this week.  Everyone thinks this is going to be The Wall endurance.  To be honest, I didn't pay attention to what time they were locked down, but it could very well be endurance.  With a HG coming back from Jury, it would be fitting to do an endurance comp and make them really fight it out for HOH. 

Helen has accepted that she is leaving, and the other HGs have made lots of plans for the upcoming week, but all of those may become null and void once the announcement of a returning player comes.  We will just have to see.  I am super excited as this should be a pretty crazy night regardless of who comes back and who wins HOH (GO JUDD!!).  I'm going to prepare myself for an evening of madness.  As always, you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight live feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Sometimes when you add alcohol crazy things happen.  The night started out pretty standard.  Amanda had a confrontation with Helen because she knew that Helen had been campaigning to Aaryn and GinaMarie to stay in the house.  The conversation took a really long time and went in a lot of circles, but basically ended up with Amanda outing all the information her allies had asked her not to about their conversations with Helen, and then Amanda telling Helen that she did not want to vote  to keep her, but that she was just one person and she didn't know how the others would be voting.  She also said she would vote with the house. 

After this there was some scrambling back and forth from Helen about votes.  Andy told Helen he was keeping her 100% (he isn't) and McCrae kind of said he was keeping her, but also tried to bait her a little because he said he wants to know if Elissa was MVP or not, and thinks Helen might tell him for his vote.

Shortly after the scrambling, alcohol arrived.  Aaryn caught a little bit of a buzz and she and Amanda got into it while re-hashing the silly red wine Jeremy incident.  Aaryn told Amanda she was being a "little cunty" that night and Amanda freaked out. Aaryn pointed out that Aaryn had actually told her she WAS a "cunt" before but Amanda tried to justify that by saying it was just a joke.  Aaryn didn't take it so lightly and the next thing you know they are arguing with each other. 

Originally it was just a small spat, but then Amanda started fighting with McCrae about it when McCrae told Amanda he did think she was a little "cunty" the night of the wine.  Amanda freaked out at McCrae and while she was yelling at him, upstairs Andy and Aaryn were talking about their ideal final 3 being GinaMarie and the two of them.  Andy drunkenly agreed with Aaryn that Amanda And McCrae are after GM because she is close with Aaryn, then Amanda came  up to the HOH with what started out trying to be something close to an apology, but ended up being a defensive mess that started a bigger fight.

After Amanda marched out of the HOH room mad to go fight with McCrae some more, Aaryn and Andy had a really long chat about everything Aaryn doesn't like about Amanda right now.  Aaryn cried about how she feels like she is doing Amanda's dirty work instead of doing what she wants to do.  She complained about how she feels like she is just being used while she is at the bottom of their alliance etc..  Eventually Amanda was traded for GinaMarie and Aaryn continued her rant.

After a while of ranting and talking about Amanda not having Aayrn's best interest in mind, GinaMarie and Aaryn came up with a plan to possibly backdoor Amanda in the morning at the veto ceremony.  They talked for a long time about the votes they thought they would have and the possibility of working with Helen and Andy, and eventually came to the conclusion that they wanted to follow through with the plan.

While GinaMarie and Aaryn were plotting Amanda's demise this week, Amanda continued to fight with McCrae downstairs.  McCrae felt like Amanda needed to just shut her mouth and let it go with Amanda, but Amanda of course said she "can't just sit there and let Aaryn think she is right about this!"  I am AMAZED and astounded at this point that Amanda has not killed her own game yet.  Her need to be right all the time is one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen in the BB house.  To me it seems like the worst social game ever to walk around screaming at people all the time when you are usually wrong and can't win anything, but apparently in this season it gets everyone to think they have to listen to you.

Regardless, while Amanda and McCrae continued to fight, Aaryn got GM to go downstairs and summon Helen to the HOH room.  Helen and Aaryn talked about how Amanda only uses them both for her own gain and Aaryn told Helen she would feel way more comfortable with her there.  She told Helen all about Amanda's plan to get her out and about the fact that the nomination were not her choice again this week.  She told Helen that if Spencer goes up on the block she is going home, because that is Amanda's plan.  She then presented her with the idea of backdooring Amanda and asked for Helen's advice on getting the votes to make sure Amanda would go home.  They had just begun to get into a talk about making a deal with Spencer to get him to vote their way when Andy entered the HOH.

Aaryn approached Andy with the idea even though she had originally said they couldn't tell Andy because he would never vote that way.  Andy said (for the sake of saving face in front of Helen I'm sure) that he would definitely vote out whoever Aaryn put up and that he was cool with the plan.  Helen started sobbing and grabbed Andy's arm and told him she would NEVER vote him out so he better vote to keep her.  The plan was starting to gain some momentum when suddenly Amanda decided to march back up to the HOH and scatter everyone out so she could squash her beef with Aaryn.

Amanda told Aaryn that she alone had been keeping Aaryn safe and she alone was the reason Aaryn was there.  She also said she alone is the one that trusts Aaryn (even though last night she was planning when to get rid of her) and this whole "everything I do for you" rant went on for a long time.  For a while Aaryn resisted and told Amanda the problems she has with her, but eventually as we knew would likely happen, Amanda talked until Aaryn finally broke down.  Once we reached sobbing levels, I knew it was over and the backdoor plan was off the table.

Unfortunately for Aaryn, GinaMarie, Helen, and Elissa had been downstairs talking in the cockpit about the plan and Andy had told Spencer about it.  Spencer actually surprised me by telling McCrae and Andy that he was going to go volunteer himself and campaign to get himself put up because putting up Amanda was a bad idea.  He then swore that even if Amanda got put up, he would not vote against her no matter what.  Spencer and McCrae then started discussing how Aaryn needs to go very soon...like sooner than Elissa or anyone else..as in next week.

While Amanda and Aaryn were hashing it out, Aaryn lied her ass off and told Amanda that Helen had come to her sobbing and begging Aaryn to consider backdooring Amanda.  She then told her that Andy had been on board for the plan, but that it may have just been for show.  She also told Amanda that Andy had told her she and McCrae were gunning for GinaMarie, so Amanda had Andy summoned to the HOH room so she could confront him in front of Aaryn.  Aaryn pretty much fed Andy his lines of "you were just playing along for the sake of Helen, right?  Were you up here when she came crying to me with this plan?" etc..  Amanda bought it and eventually went back downstairs to talk with Spencer.  Andy remained in the HOH to ask Aaryn if she was still considering backdooring Amanda.  She said no, she was back on the plan to put Spencer up.  Aaryn told him that Helen was going to die now when she puts Spencer up in the morning.

Andy went downstairs and talked with Amanda and told her that he had stopped Aaryn from backdooring her, but that she needed to start keeping her mouth shut more because it was close.  As of now there is a game of "wait each other out" going on in the HOH room.  Helen is listening to the CD and waiting to be the last person in Aaryn's ear, while McCrae and Spencer sit around and talk with Aaryn making sure that Helen can't talk to her before she goes to bed.

Either way, even if Helen talks to Aaryn, I don't think it will make a difference.  I think we are back where we started at the beginning of the night with Spencer going up and Helen going home.  The only things that have changed are that Helen now knows she is going if Spencer goes up, and most of Aaryn's alliance doesn't trust her now.  I feel like if Aaryn had actually put Amanda up, she may have actually been able to secure the votes, but by just threatening to put her up and not actually following through, she now has Amanda, McCrae, Andy, Elissa, and Spencer possibly gunning for her this coming week.  Then again, someone is coming back from the jury and could potentially become public enemy number one...especially if Helen just bounces right back in.

I do not expect Aaryn's mind to be changed and I am certain that Spencer will be on the block by this afternoon.  I think this will be his 5th time, but don't quote me on that..it might actually be his 6th.  Unless anything super drastic happens, that's pretty much it for tonight. As always you all can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...
