For the most part the feeds were really boring yesterday and tonight. There were a few tidbits here and there that are worth mentioning though.
Jessie and Spencer are nominated as predicted. While Andy was the one to put the keys in, this is of course another Amanda/Helen HOH...mostly Amanda this time. When the feeds returned from the nomination ceremony, Amanda was telling McCrae "Helen MUST GO next week." and that she must be backdoored. This is typical for Amanda at this point. As soon as the nomination ceremony happens each week, by the end of it she is pushing for the next week's target.
Earlier in the day, Helen had given a gentle push to Andy about possibly getting Amanda out this week, but as he is more loyal to Amanda than Helen, this of course did not fly. She continued to question it off and on a little tonight through stealth whispers, but each time Andy just told her "it's not time to make a move like that yet."
I'm honestly not sure what exactly it is that Aaryn is up to. She is supposed to be in a final 4 alliance with Amanda, McCrae, and Andy, but they all want Jessie gone this week, and Aaryn is suddenly pushing to keep Jessie and evict Spencer. She only dropped subtle hints about it to Andy and Helen, but she spent a good portion of her night coaching Jessie on various veto comps and how to win them as well as how to manipulate the HGs into thinking they need you to stay.
While Aaryn was coaching Jessie, Amanda and McCrae talked about who they are taking to the final 3 with them. Amanda has become very comfortable with the idea (or fact as it is in her mind) that she will be in the final 2. She and McCrae talked about taking Elissa "because she can't win anything"...I guess Amanda forgot Elissa has won one more comp than she has. They talked about other people too, but never came to a conclusion. When Judd was still in tight with Amanda, he told her several times not to get comfortable because if you do, the next week you'll go home. I've never ever wished for a prediction to come true so hard in my life...although Helen going out would be great too.
Veto should pbe played sometime today. Most of the HGs are pretty sure it will be either the "count until an hour" comp or the "count things and play poker" comp. I have no idea what it will actually be. With Andy being HOH this week and the MVP twist gone, I don't expect anything crazy to happen. Even if Jessie or Spencer wins Veto, it will just mean that GinaMarie will go up and likely go home instead of Jessie (although Amanda says Jessie must still go even if GM goes up). The most exciting thing we will probably see this week is whether Amanda or Helen is a better schemer since the two are now ready to go after each other next week. As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates. Until tomorrow night...
