A Day In The Life Of: Kaitlin

Just when I thought it was going to be an easy week, a giant gust of change hit the Big Brother house. Everybody was all set to finally evict Arryn, especially CBS. There’s no doubt the change in the MVP vote was to ensure her nomination and departure, but it backfired and put the show’s pet (Elissa) in danger.

That, of course, changed when Elissa won the veto competition in an event that even the other contestants believe was rigged. We now have Arryn, Kaitlin, and GinaMarie on the block, and it looked like everybody was going to get what they wanted.

But no! There have been rumblings from various people that maybe Kaitlin should be the one to go this week. Elissa was dead set against this idea, as she wants that girl whose very presence is an affront to her to immediately leave. Hours of rambling from Helen, though, finally broke her down, and it now looks like we’re in the last days of Jeremy’s little love kitten.

Before we get to what should be her last Tuesday in the house, let’s backtrack a bit. It probably is a smart move to get rid of Kaitlin. Besides a veto win last week that ultimately saw her boy toy get evicted, she has forced two straight HOH competitions to go to a bonus question. Imagine how different this season would be if she had pulled out that victory against Helen two weeks ago, or Judd last week.

Today started with Big Brother attempting to wake up the house at 9:30, but only a handful of people roll out of bed. Because of this, we’re treated to closeups of Andy picking zits in the bathroom. He heads outside, and joins Helen, Jessie, and Judd in scripting just how they’re going to get rid of Kaitlin. (Actually, they’re overthinking it a bit, planning some goofy scenario where Kaitlin barely gets more votes than Arryn.)

It’s not until after 1 pm that we get our first glimpse of Kaitlin, as Andy comes into the bedroom and starts babbling to GinaMarie. Oh wait, Kaitlin has slipped out of bed at some point. The camera jumps to the bathroom, where Kaitlin is fixing her hair. Andy plots down and starts babbling to her. They’re actually shocked that Judd has locked his HOH door!

Various people ramble in and out as Andy keeps up his nonstop chatter. “Have you ever been punched? How about you, Spencer? I bet Amanda has been punched.” They gossip a bit about Helen acting like she is still the HOH, and both hope the next HOH comp is endurance.

Finally left alone, Andy says that he has something to tell her. “Don’t make yourself like a threat”, he counsels. “You’re fine don’t seem like a Jeremy.”

This freaks out Kaitlin, and she complains that she’s been hearing from others that Arryn has been spreading stories about her. She’s also bummed that everybody says that GInaMarie has nothing to worry about, and will probably get no votes. Andy lies and said he’s heard none of this. “Who told you that”, he asks. “Helen and Elissa”, Kaitlin responds. Andy says that he’s not heard a word from them, and says that he’ll keep his ears open for her.

Elissa wanders in, and makes fun of Spencer’s lusting after Jessie. “I wonder what Marilyn thinks every time he says ‘I just love watching her in a bathing suit’”, she says. “Ewww, it’s so gross.” Kaitlin laughs how he acts like he’s so respectable, and says she doesn’t believe they’re really together. They go on to talk about Spencer and Marilyn’s financial woes.

Then Elissa goes into her patented whine. This time it’s because Big Brother took all of her “cute” bathing suits. “Mmmm hmmm. They took the top to this bathing suit, which made it really cute” Arryn eventually joins them, but little is said outside of hair care tips.

She then wanders into the kitchen where Helen and Jessie are cooking slop, and complains that her legs and arms are sore. The whining continues as she prepares some food, but out of nowhere Helen tells her that her “resemblance to Megan Fox is uncanny”. Um, really? Gossip time, and we go to fish.

When we return, Candice waddles in dressed in her pink footy pajamas, and Kaitlin teases her about them. “Please, can you wear those all day?” There’s more small talk, including GinaMarie’s successful cinnamon challenge from the previous night and how Big Brother is so much longer than Survivor and Amazing Race. Both Helen and Elissa (who almost went on with her sister except for a visa snafu) want to go on Amazing Race so they can travel the world.

Kaitlin, GinaMaire, and Arryn, who had joined the kitchen chatter, then move back into their bedroom. They’re sorting laundry, and Kaitlin complains that some of her favorite items are missing. Last night, Arryn had claimed to be Jeremy’s sister, and Kaitlin laughs about how she believed it. They have a minor tiff, and Arryn and GinaMarie giggle about it when Kaitlin wanders into another room.

Arryn says it’s frustrating how people twist their words, and Kaitlin bitches that Amanda never gets in trouble for her “racist” words but somehow she’s the one portrayed as one. “I’ve never said anything specifically racist”, claims Arryn. There’s also some bitching about how Big Brother didn’t allow them to bring in their favorite bikinis (similar to Elissa!), and that they should do a Victoria Secret-ish fashion show. (I concur!)

Judd now has the HOH camera, and comes in to pose for pictures with the girls. Once he’s gone, they lay down and continue to talk about how they believe the next HOH comp will be endurance. Kaitlin is worried that Elissa’s yoga will give her a balance advantage. They also make fun of the fact that Elissa made fun of Amanda’s one-piece bathing suit the other night but was complimenting Candice’s. GinaMarie wanders back in, and talk moves to the MVP. Kaitlin still thinks it could be Elissa, and GinaMarie complains that the only people to “make game-changing moves are you and Jeremy”. For some strange reason, GinaMarie also bitches about Jessie’s “big nipples that kind of freak me out”. She also bitches that Jess is constantly walking in and out of their room. Wait, she’s doing an Andy?

The girls finally head outside for more HOH pictures and pooltime. Actually, I think Kaitlin is still packing her clothes, as she’s not seen outside. The cams eventually move to Amanda/Elissa/McCrae (1&2) and Candice/Howard (3&4). I was right. Kaitlin wasn’t outside, as we now see her walking through the kitchen. She’s on for a fleeting moment, as it’s more important for us to hear Elissa complain and gossip...and then get pissed over a religious comment.

As Elissa continues to have a hissy fit in the bedroom, Kaitlin begins cleaning out the fridge. The cams go to trivia for a few minutes, and now Kaitlin is in the HOH room with a number of others. It actually appears to be a full HOH lockdown, except without Elissa. Oh wait, she is in the room, and talk is about scripted reality shows and past Big Brother seasons. Out of nowhere, Kaitlin suddenly babbles, “my mom has a prescription to People Magazine”. Prescription? Really? That’s a GinaMarie type line!

Around an hour later, the HOH lockdown finally ends, and after a slight delay Kaitlin meanders out of the room. She disappears from the cams, but we do see Helen lecture...I mean explain to Arryn how she’s going to survive the wee. She briefly reappears as GinaMarie discovers that a number of ducks have been added to the pool, and then heads off to lay down next to the hammock with GinaMarie. This doesn’t last long, as she heads inside after changing her mind about the next competition. Instead of endurance, it’s now going to be questions again. (Doubtful.)

When she walks into her bedroom, Judd is looking for a bed to take a nap. You see, as always, his HOH bed is occupied by others. Kaitlin tells him to just sleep on her bed, as the bed GinaMarie uses is covered by makeup. She is then seen in the kitchen with a chomping GinaMarie, and she spends a bit of time cleaning out the mold and meat blood in the fridge. After GinaMarie wanders off, Candice comes in to eat, wearing that godawful pink onesie.

Kaitlin is off cam for the next hour or so, but then reemerges in the outdoor couch area with GinaMarie, Amanda, and McCrae. There’s more speculation about how much time Howard spends in the diary room; a topic that gets GinaMarie fired up. Kaitlin also teases her again about her makeup-covered sheets. Like always, GinaMarie dominates the conversation that’s about nothing, which eventually turns into a (sometimes tasteless) bitchfest against Candice.

For the next hour or so, little happened. Judd acted like a goof, sorting through everybody’s stuff (primarily Howard) to find the “MVP card”. GinaMarie took a bath; Arryn took a shower. Other laid around and did nothing.

Then out of nowhere comes a bit of shit-stirring. Elissa and Kaitlin were in the kitchen, and out of the blue Elissa whispers, “somebody’s lying. We either need to sit everybody down and see who is telling the truth, or you’re going to go home”. Kaitlin sort of walks away, saying she’s “definitely going to ask them”, but Elissa isn’t finished. A couple of minutes later, she asks Kaitlin what she’s going to ask. Elissa wants a house meeting, so she tells her that it’s not going to do any good to just ask them all separately. “You’re going to go home if you don’t, and I’m going to be upset.”

Kaitlin replies that if they’re going against her, they’re actually going against Elissa. “Against me? How me?” Kaitlin replies that those people “are your little minions. They follow you around.” If the vote doesn’t go Kaitlin’s way, it’s Elissa’s fault. “Nobody’s going to do what I say”, Elissa claims. “Everybody does what you say”, counters Kaitlin. I’m kind of liking this conversation. Good for Kaitlin!

Elissa says she’d rather that Kaitlin stay over Arryn, but “not if you’re working with Howard and Spencer”. Kaitlin denies that is the case. Elissa won’t let it drop, saying that Jeremy worked with those two. Kaitlin says she could “never work with them again”. To Elissa, that means that Arryn is making stuff up again. Elissa asks that Kaitlin not mention this conversation to anybody, Andy then walks in, and Kaitlin makes her escape.

I didn’t catch this, but Arryn apparently heard this entire exchange, and heads up to the HOH to complain to Amanda and McCrae.

So what happened here? Wasn’t Elissa in on the plan to let Kaitlin believe she’s safe? There are a couple of possibilities here. One is that Elissa is still bitter over the religion disagreement from earlier in the night, and wanted to passive/aggressively create some controversy. It’s plausible, because Elissa is an evil machine.

I think what really happened is that the diary room instructed Elissa to interject some action into an otherwise boring night. They have a need for some pre-eviction footage for Thursday night, so why not program their little robot to create it?

Andy is dragged into the storage room to be informed as to what just happened. Andy claims that nobody has talked to her about changing anything (technically a lie), and says she’s crazy. Kaitlin is irritated because Elissa is “lying to my face”. Andy said that Elissa is “full of shit” and promises her that he’d tell her if that was the case.

They leave the storage room, and Kaitlin encounters Arryn in the kitchen. “You’re going to enjoy this one. I’m so irritated right now”, says Kaitlin. An annoyed Arryn barely responds. They head into the bedroom, and Kaitlin tells her the entire story, and Arryn denies hearing anything. GinaMarie walks in, and Kaitlin repeats the story again. She wants to talk to Helen.

Arryn leaves in the middle of this retell, and meets with Helen in the cockpit room. Helen reassures her that the plan is still in place.

Kaitlin can’t find Helen, so goes out and confronts Howard and Spencer, who asks how it is possible to have a final four deal with just three people. He instructs her to just let her be upset, and Howard says that Elissa has had an attitude with her all day. She heads back inside to find Helen, who has now headed upstairs  

Kaitlin then goes up to get Helen, who asks for a few minutes. She encounters Arryn, who wants to know who is upstairs. “I don’t know”, she curtly replies. Strangely, Elissa is now talking to GinaMarie, complaining that Arryn lies. Kaitlin continues to pace around the house.

Helen finally finds Elissa, who downplays it all and claims that people keep making up stories. “I’m so tired of being lied to. and manipulated. I don’t know what the deal is. Stop being so over-dramatic.” She spins it and spins it, and, of course, Helen believes Elissa’s bullshit. At the same time, Kaitlin is yelling to a disinterested Judd about why he wants her to go.

The only good thing that happens is that Arryn plops herself down in the room with Helen, Elissa, and GinaMarie, and says she heard every word. “Why are you trying to stir things up?” Elissa makes it all about herself, of course, complaining that Arryn is the one who plopped herself down in the room and started in on her without an invitation. “This has nothing to do with you”, says Elissa. Kaitlin comes into the room, and verifies what Kaitlin says. Elissa is still dismissive of Arryn.

Kaitlin goes off to get Spencer and Howard, who all say they want to know who is talking about them. Elissa wants to know if it is true, and they both deny it. “I’m alone in this game”, says Kaitlin. “Nobody tells me anything.” Seriously, the spin and half-truths that come out of Elissa is pretty amazing. Kaitlin adds that she has been honest in the entire game. “I have not lied to anybody in this room.”

GinaMarie then goes on a rant that somehow includes Nick. It’s a waste of five minutes, making me wish there was a yogurt machine for her to deep throat. The floor goes back to Elissa, who again is just an innocent waif who did nothing wrong.

Things get comical when Arryn again stands up for herself and bitches about the half-truths that people like Elissa have been spreading. She says that for whatever reason Elissa won’t even acknowledge her presence, so there’s no way to clear the air with her. “I don’t even think about you. That’s funny. Don’t flatter yourself.” Sorry, Brenchel fans, but Elissa is the worst bitch in the world.

Stupidly, Katilin buckles and pretty much comes close to kissing Elissa’s feet. It’s disappointing that only Arryn is standing up for herself, and Elissa just replies over and over that she never thinks about Arryn. That, my friends, is the biggest lie of the season, as she does talk about her all day long.

Spencer, of all people, has the line of the debate, asking why he would even think about making alliances with people on the block. Good question, especially when either of them could go.

Finally, the fight ends...although Elissa continues to badmouth Arryn to Spencer. “I cannot be in a house with Arryn. She is such a bad person.” Spencer is pissed at her, as she has been “giving me the cold shoulder all day”. “Can you see how she attacked me”, she replies. She continues to play the victim when Judd heads outside, complaining that nobody stood up for her. Ugh.

Meanwhile, Judd, Arryn, and Kaitlin can’t believe what just occurred. “What the fuck just happened”, asks Kaitlin. Arryn now says that she knows what Elissa is capable of doing, and starts crying. “It’s just one person fucking everything up.”

Kaitlin finally storms out of the bedroom, and ends up in the backyard with Elissa. Yes, you probably predicted what happened here. Elissa lays in to Kaitlin for bringing her into this situation...and again, Kaitlin folds. “But I’m the one who got attacked”, complains Elissa. “It’s not fair.” Kaitlin just wants to know what condiment to put in her meal, and Elissa offers to make it. What? How does this happen? They cooked together???

Amanda comes down, and Kaitlin says that she missed the big show. Amanda, who is wearing Judd’s HOH robe, says she’s happy that she wasn’t there, but outside wonders how her name was brought into it. Judd fills her in, and she takes it as an opportunity to yell at Spencer and Howard. Spencer’s reply? “I don’t even speak your fucking name.” Kaitlin comes out, and relays to Amanda the entire story. “This is a bunch of bullshit”, concludes Spencer.

Amanda asks for the exact incident with Elissa, and concludes that this is all Candice’s fault. After a few more minutes, Helen finally pipes up to deflect the blame away from Elissa. Kaitln’s dumb move is believing that the whole incident is because people have seen the late night crew hanging out together. No, it’s because Elissa wanted (or production wanted) some shit stirring.

Arryn comes outside now, and the bickering continues. “Congrats”, says Arryn. “Now you’re for sure staying.” Candice also comes out, so we get yet another retell of the story. After hearing it, Candice babbles some self-help bullshit, and walks away.

For the next hour or so, there’s a lot of self-indulgent spin management going on. Everybody is trying to ensure their hands are clean of everything. In the midst of this, Big Brother provides some booze. Great idea...for us viewers at least. Amanda takes the opportunity to use this controversy to go after Candice again (and also Kaitlin), leading Kaitlin to just sigh, “self evict. I want to smoke a joint so badly.”

Kaitlin then heads up to the HOH room, and tells McCrae and Judd that if she’s going home she needs to be told. There’s talk that Arryn may indeed be saved just to get back at Elissa. She then wanders downstairs and eavesdrops on a bunch talking about the incident in the cockpit room. When Amanda comes out of that room, Kaitlin goes in...and now Amanda is eavesdropping. Kaitlin whines that she’s going home after being nothing but nice to everybody and that Elissa conveniently forgets what she says five minutes after saying it. “She is a crazy liar.”

There’s a few other chats of this type, including another one with Andy where he plays dumb. Kaitlin doesn’t understand why everybody is so afraid of Elissa and Amanda, but Andy says he’s never really involved in their conversations. He says he has her back.

The night ends with a typically bizarre chat with GinaMarie and a more reassuring one with Judd. She ends up being the last person we see awake, deep in thought while dipping her feet in the tub.

So that’s it. A day that looked to be a bore turned into one of the silliest nights I’ve watched in quite some time. At the end of the day, though, it looks like Kaitlin is still going home. The only difference is that she now has knowledge this may happen. Who knows what will happen tomorrow?
This edition of the series should result in tons of comments. Do you think Kaitlin will be saved? What caused Elissa to go nuts? Which fake alliance is a real alliance? How many real alliances are ake? Tell us your thoughts!

The Night Owl 

Well, today started out like a pretty normal average day.  It did NOT stay that way for long though.  Early on Tuesday morning everyone was still on board for keeping Aaryn and evicting Kaitlin.  Amanda, Elissa, Andy, and McCrae were talking about Howard and Religion out in the backyard not far from where Howard was actually standing when Elissa started to get a little bit loud about it.  Andy tried to give her a nonchalant "shhh" so that Howard would not hear them and McCrae giggled at the effort.  That's when the few marbles that Elissa still possessed completely fell out of her head.  She was just SURE that they were making fun of her religion and laughing at her about it.  She stormed inside.  Andy and McCrae tried to follow her and let her know it had nothing to do with her religion and that they were only trying to keep her voice down.  Elissa told them she did not want to talk to either of them.  She also added "I'm not stupid. I know you were making fun of me. It's a disgrace. I take my beliefs very seriously.".  It took a while for them to convince her, but finally things SEEMED like they were going to be okay...until the HOH lockdown.

A few hours later there was a lockdown where all the HGs had to stay in the HOH.  Most of them dozed off and slept except for Amanda and Elissa.  They went into the bathroom and Elissa ended up crying in a shower stall telling Amanda again that she is not stupid and knows that they were making fun of her religious beliefs.

Once the lockdown was over Elissa crawled into Judd's HOH bed and went to sleep and the other HGs went their separate ways and did their own thing.  Earlier in the morning, Judd, Amanda, McCrae, Andy, and Helen had all compared notes on Howard and Spencer.  Amanda was still claiming to be in a fake alliance with Howard (she isn't) and saying that he has deals with everyone in the house.  This prompted Judd and Andy to spill about the fake alliance they have with Spencer and Howard that also sort of sometimes includes GinaMarie and Kaitlin.  Helen told Elissa about it and Elissa asked Judd if it was true and he told her yes, and so she agreed that was another good reason to get Kaitlin out and to go after Howard next week.

Amanda hammered on to Judd some more about how she thinks Howard is the problem in the house and how she thinks he is MVP and has secret powers.  Judd who was not feeling well due to running out of his meds and no being able to sleep much then went on a very un-Judd-like rampage of a little bit of meanness and a lot of searching under mattresses and inside pillows around Howard's bed trying to find a "coup de tat" or something similar.  After he got his meds he started to calm down and went to play a game of pool with Howard.

While this game of pool was happening, Elissa, still missing her marbles, decied to go and do her super passive aggressive bitch thing with Kaitlin.  She of course had an agenda...to get Aaryn to be the one voted out. 

Elissa started asking Kaitlin if she had a secret alliance with Howard, GM, Judd, and Kaitlin.  She told her that if she didn't she needed to confront them in front of the whole house so that people would know about it.  She also told her that people were planning to vote her out, but that she wanted Aaryn gone and so she wanted to know what was really happening.  Kaitlin being not very bright in many ways took the bait and immediately ran to Helen and Aaryn to tell them what Elissa had been saying.  Aaryn also told Helen that she had heard her name mentioned.

We all know how quickly news travels in the BB house.  It only took about 10 minutes for everyone in the house to know what was happening.  Helen in an effort to do damage control went searching for Elissa and found her laying in bed with GinaMarie chatting.  She asked if she could talk to her and Elissa said no.  Helen pressed the matter, and then Aaryn walked in. 

Then all hell broke loose.  Aaryn and Elissa started snipping at each other because Elissa kept telling Aaryn that she was saying things about her all the time etc..   Aaryn started defending herself and for ONCE, Aaryn was actually right.  Somewhere during the spat Elissa told Kaitlin she wanted to know the truth and told her to go get Spencer and Howard.  Once they came in, the whole house besides Amanda and McCrae (who still have their asses glued to the HOH bed) and Candice who was sleeping, also joined the party.  The argument was very circular.  Elissa kept accusing Aaryn of lying about her and then asking about the fake alliance.  All involved denied the fake alliance and Aaryn kept telling Elissa exactly what she said and telling her that she had tried to patch things up with her many times. 

In this particular argument, Aaryn was actually completely right.   Before you guys chop my head off, let me say I am NOT in any way defending the things that Aaryn has said, or her as a  person.  I am just saying in this one instance, she was right.  Judd was probably one of the most truly uncomfortable people in the room since everyone including Elissa kept asking "well who said there was an alliance?" when Elissa knew full well that he was the one who told her about it. 

After several really strange rounds, the meeting/fight broke up and Helen and Andy ran straight up to the HOH room to talk to Amanda and McCrae about what had just happened.  Amanda of course started blaming Spencer and Howard, but the room consensus was that Elissa has to go SOON and possible before Howard or Spencer.

While the HOH talks were happening, Judd went out to talk to Elissa in the backyard.  He told her that she was one of his best friends in the house and that he had felt close to her since she had been very kind to him when he was really sick week one.  He then told her that even though they were close he needed to know if she had his back because what she did was putting a huge target on him.  She refused to understand that what she did had any repercussions to his game and in the end told him "you are all liars".  Meaning that she believes he made up the alliance with Howard and Spencer to get her to vote Kaitlin out of the house.

Elissa then went inside to take a shower and also victimize herself to Howard and a few other people that would listen to her.  Things seemed to be mostly dying down for the night other than the mass talks about Elissa being insane....but THEN they got booze!!

Wine always seems to be the thing tha fuels Amanda at her worst/best dramatic moments in the house and tonight was no different.  Helen, Kaitlin, and Candice were in the hammock drinking wine and chatting about what had happened.  Candice was implying that Amanda had created the story about the fake alliance prompting Elissa to do what she did.  Up in the HOH room, Amanda was talking shit about Candice to McCrae.  Eventually Jessie who had heard  the conversation with Candice came up to the HOH and told Amanda what had been said. This fueled the slightly buzzed Amanda to go downstairs and confront Candice.  She yelled at her and accused her of having no balls and then went back upstairs.

And the wine just kept flowing....

After going upstairs and telling McCrae and Aaryn what happened with Candice, and talking a lot of shit about Candice and Kaitlin, Amanda decided to make a return trip for round two.  This time she didn't yell at Candice, but instead was really nasty about people not present mainly Kaitlin and GinaMarie.   Once the outside party was broken up, Amanda pulled Howard and Spencer into the Cockpit to basically tell Howard to control Candice and keep her name out of Candice's mouth. Meanwhile, Kaitlin went upstairs and vented to McCrae about the Amanda situation.

At some point in-between all the fighting and craziness, Amanda started getting even closer with Aaryn, and at this point I think she might actually consider her an alliance member.

Right now things seem to be settling down.  Amanda and McCrae are alone in the HOH room and Spencer, Helen, and Andy are chatting in the Hammock about what happened.

What an INSANE night!! We still have more than 24 hours to go before the eviction so things are subject to change, but as of now, Kaitlin is still leaving and Aaryn and GinaMarie are staying.  Who knows what will happen today though.  With Elissa seeming to have gone off the rails or "gone rogue" as a few HGs have called it, a million things could happen today.  I expect to see a lot of duckfacing it up before eviction night on Thursday.  I will throw some pictures of the night down below for you all to see.  I won't lie, this blog was better the first time I wrote it, but my tired brain accidentally deleted it all and so I had to start over.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...

A Day In The Life Of: Aaryn

Today should be interesting, as I’m going to follow around America’s favorite racist. I should have done this profile earlier in the season, though, as she’s been almost forgotten the last few days. It’s now almost assumed that she will be nominated every week, but last week there was a much bigger fish to fry.

This week may be different, although there are some cracks in the foundation that may result in one of a handful of others that see Julie Chen on Thursday. It’s doubtful in my mind that this will actually happen, and it will ultimately depend on the next person down the list on America’s nominee voting.

It’s a lazy day in Big Brother, as the house had a late-night that saw Aaryn actually fight against some of the charges against her. Insanely fight, of course, but she seems to be perplexed why people want her gone. Like I said, she insanely debated the charges.

Anyway, it’s a quiet morning, except for the plop plop fizz fizz of Helen’s feet as she jogs around the house. Why somebody who is trying to sleep doesn’t get up and yell at her for being so inconsiderate is beyond me, but we don’t see Aaryn at all until after 12:30. In the meantime, Helen has gathered the troops into another gigantic alliance that will last until the next giant alliance. What’s strange is that she’s seen making small talk about Elissa, who is doing her usual passive/aggressive method of gaining knowledge she already knows. Aaryn doesn’t give her much as she continues to much down her cereal.

She putters around the kitchen or a bit before disappearing off camera. We do hear her a little bit later saying “good afternoon” to Judd, who is still stuck in solitary confinement. Instead, the cams either focus on Jessie cooking slop or Amanda and McCrae finally waking up (along with Helen blathering on for hours outside). This raises a question. Is CBS so fed up with Aaryn that they’re no longer giving us the tittilation of our little racist getting ready in the morning (I mean afternoon)? Is McCrae making a bed or Jessie stirring a pot more entertaining than watching a cute blonde girl go through her daily routine?

The camera does return to her as she sits silently in the living room. She does take Amanda aside and informs her that Elissa and Helen are spreading stories from last night. She’s pissed that she is now the person to blame for everything that ever happens in the house. Amanda doesn’t seem to care, though...for now.

Aaryn again disappears for a time, as there are more important things to show. Amanda versus Candice. Amanda versus Elissa. Helen’s interrogations and repeated descriptions of her curfew. At least various people show up to cheer up (or is it bother?) Judd during his solitary confinement.

She is then seen talking to McCrae about various topics, including the circumstances of her birth and her heart murmur. She then moves on to laundry as Helen continues to bore everybody with more of her chatter. She also suggests that Amanda and McCrae should clean up the HOH, but doesn’t get much of a reply.

As Helen holds court in the pool, Aaryn continues to work with the laundry before heading inside to sit around as Candice makes “slop balls”. There’s some babbling about self-help books, and “inflamed intestines”. Arryn claims to have once wanted to be a relationship counselor, but after reading a million books she realized that there is no correct answer. “It stirred me more away from relationships rather than being in them.” This explains a lot.

Ok, reverse my earlier complaint. We do get nonsense footage of Arryn fixing her hair, while GinaMarie is working on her extensions. Little is said by either of them. Kaitlin joins them, chowing down on some food like she’s a “Neandertall”, but the chat doesn’t improve. They complain how Candice is going around saying that they’ve all been talking trash about Elissa. “I’m jaded by it”, replies Aaryn. “I really don’t care anymore...I feel like I’ve been chastised to the point where I’m not fun anymore. I’m not even like me.”

The whining continues as Aaryn complains about how people portray themselves as victims. She does make a point, though, when she complains that Amanda ends up apologizing to the person, Elissa, who was making fun of her last night. GinaMarie finally tires of the conversation, and tells her she doesn’t give a fuck. They even snip at each a little before GinaMarie stomps off to have a bizarre conversation/confrontation with Elissa. While that goes down, Arryn plops herself on the floor to chat with Judd.

Once that ridiculous conversation is finished, GinaMarie reports everything that was said (or her version of it) to Amanda. Meanwhile, Aaryn is now having an argument with Kaitlin in the bathroom. Yes, it’s about that same conversation with Amanda last night. The MVP situation has EVERYBODY on edge, and Aaryn’s complaint is that the two of them are supposed to be friends, yet she went to Elissa to bitch about her. “It’s gameplay”, replies Kaitlin. They move their fight into the kitchen, where Amanda joins in. It’s really a silly she said/she said fight. “You’re playing into that whole word mistake thing”, Aaryn complains. Somebody explain what that means, please.

Kaitlin wanders off to complain about Arryn, which leaves GinaMarie to endure more of her whining. It’s really just the same stuff over and over, although it is funny when GinaMarie claims “I never talk shit. I don’t need to.” Really? Aaryn finally wanders off to report to Judd her latest complaints. “It’s killing me. It’s killing my game.” Poor Judd.

She’s then off camera for a time, as Howard and Candice play pool, while Kaitlin befriends the likes of Spencer, Helen, Andy, and Spencer. Yes, exciting.

I did then watch the CBS show with the feeds on in the background. The only thing of consequence that happened during that hour was that Judd was released from solitary confinement, and Aaryn was part of the welcoming committee that rewarded him with beer and pizza. She sits outside with him and a few others afterwards, and confides that she is finally learning how to stop talking. Finally, during the week you’re probably going home!

It’s now photo booth time, which is a good place for a break. It’s the same as always. They all participate, and it’s really boring as a viewer. Oh wait, they don’t. A couple of them do, and they most wander back to what they were already doing.

Aaryn wanders back outside, where Amanda and Judd are gossiping. Amanda’s rage is now against Kaitlin and her new alliance, which obviously is something that Aaryn is pleased to hear. Judd’s not really against this plan, or so he says.

Suddenly, she’s back in the bedroom with Kaitlin, but I can’t make out anything they’re whispering. GinaMarie barges in anyway, so Arryn decides to participate in the photo booth silliness.

A little later, she interrupts a very tense meeting in the HOH involving Spencer, McCrae, and Amanda. She exits pretty quickly and the talk carries on. She returns to Kaitlin and GinaMarie in the kitchen.

My patience is starting to wear thin as Arryn now gets in the hammock with GinaMarie and Kaitlin to continue her daily theme on mean people and lies. It’s the same stories over and over. Jessie breaks it up a bit by joining them, and the talk moves to slop and jewelry before she wanders off.

Thirty minutes later, she joins a number of people outside on the couch. Spencer is at his best, almost begging Jessie to take off her bra as he has a “secret alliance” with her nipples. Classy. The feeds don’t last long on this group, as Helen is again pontificating in the HOH, and Elissa is being her typical weird self in the kitchen. They do return to the group scene from time to time, and when it’s not minor items they’re discussing it does all go back to Elissa and how weird she is.

There is one major happening in the house this evening, and since it doesn’t involve Aaryn she’s hit and miss for quite some time. There’s a fake engagement between McCrae and Amanda, and GinaMarie shows her jealousy because she didn’t get such an event with Nick. Aaryn is one that attempts to talk her down, and there is also a funny moment where Aaryn compliments Elissa on a treat that she had made. Elissa ignores her.

After that, it’s a pretty calm night. Aaryn is more sociable than usual, and she even ends up in the same vicinity with people she normally spends little time with (Candice, etc.). There’s lots of homelife talk, but nothing really serious. The night ends with Aaryn sitting up in the HOH with Judd, Kaitlin, GinaMarie, and Spencer. The prime talk again is Elissa, and her strangeness.

So that’s it. A full day with the most hated woman in Big Brother history, and you know what? It wasn’t that much of a chore. She really has calmed down, and while she does have a tendency to whine, for the most part she’s no more self-absorbed than anybody else in the house.

Any thoughts on this piece? Should I have piled on with condemnation like every other Aaryn report? Tell us what you think.

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 11 Recap

After the craziness of the last few episode, it’s probably a good thing that tonight’s should be pretty calm. There will be the aftermath of Judd’s HOH victory, a Have-Not competition, and Judd’s nominations. I’d expect lots of filler, and more than a few times that subtitles are used to transcribe Judd’s mumbling. Or Elissa.

The show begins with Jeremy’s eviction, and Kaitlin (kind of) sadly blames herself. “He deserves to be here a lot more than some of these other people.” Aaryn also claims to be a bit bummed, but she’s “just happy to be here”. Of course, Helen screams in the diary room, but says she can’t get too cocky. She says this as she’s acting cocky, of course. Jeremy asks for his “princess”, and is out the door.

As his picture turns black, Amanda jokes that “he looks better in black and white, though”, and hugs Kaitlin. Spencer is happy that he’s still in the house, but is bummed that all of the guys are leaving. Kaitlin, though, is just “trying to hold it together”. She’s worried she’ll take it out on other people.

We move to the HOH competition, and Judd’s victory. He’s excited to be “king of the house for a week”. Surprisingly, Jessie is even more excited. Oh wait, I know why. He’s the only guy that pays attention to her. GinaMarie, though, is shocked, and says the cute girls need to play up to him to “get the scrubs outta the house”.

Filler moment number one. Jessie has Judd’s crown, and he has to kiss her to get it back.

Meanwhile, Aaryn and Kaitlin are sad that Jessie is gone. Kaitlin thinks she’s owed some safety for a few weeks, and Aaryn says she should be happy to still be in the house. Kaitlin thinks she does have a better shot at doing well without Jeremy being around.

In the lounge area, Amanda is freaking out about Julie’s announcement about the MVP twist. McCrae says his “mind is starting to spiral” about this twits, and they wonder who Judd is going to put up. They think it should be Kaitlin and GinaMarie, but Amanda thinks it should be Howard. Judd and Jessie walk in, and Amanda asks what he thinks. She wants Candice and Howard, or Aaryn and Kaitlin. She says in the diary room that she has “to keep him in check”. Judd, though, says that Amanda is getting on his nerves. “She may run McCrae, but she does not run J-U-Double-D!

Candice and Howard are now together, and they pretty much just rerun everything we just heard. Howard feels confident because “I’m in with my boy, Judd”. The twist is on their mind, too.

Ugh, it’s the “who wants to see my HOH room” segment. I don’t participate in this idiocy. Fast forward time.

Judd is now upstairs with a bunch of people, and says he’s thinking about putting up GinaMarie. Spencer wants to know if she is the target, but Judd doesn’t really know. Elissa, though, wants Aaryn up, and Howard pushes for Kaitlin. Elissa says GinaMarie would be a “waste”. Of a nominee, that is. Spencer really doesn’t care as long as he and Howard are safe.

Filler moment number two, as we deal with GinaMarie’s butchering of words. I guess it’s better than some of the other words she uses, but it’s another fast forward moment.

Filler moment number three, as they try to force another showmance on us. Look, CBS viewers, Howard really doesn’t care about Candice. This is all in her mind. And the network’s desire to create showmances is one of the reasons the casting has deteriorated in recent years. Stop it!

The show jumps ahead to Judd’s “Kiss the Ring” conversations, and Aaryn is telling him that she has no desire to go after him. He pretty much tells her that he has to put her up, but “GinaMarie is annoying”. He’d be “down for campaigning against her”. Aaryn, though, wants Howard to be put up. Judd says that’s a bad idea because he would probably get the veto. Aaryn is pissed.

FIller moment number four, as Kaitlin and GinaMarie both talk about their “men”. Aaryn walks in, and complains that being on the block is too stressful. Kaitlin complains that she shouldn’t freak out about it, and Aaryn says that all three of them are going to go up. The other two girls don’t agree, which angers Aaryn. GinaMarie snaps at her, saying she needs to think positive. “Just relax and talk normal.” Somehow, NIck’s name comes up, of course, even though Aaryn said nothing about him. Wait, did we just get a sympathetic Aaryn moment?

Time for the “funkiest have-not competition of the summer”. They’re all in swimsuits, and they have to drink these awful flavors of yogurt. The team that gains the least weight wins. I don’t quite get it, either, and don’t really care. I do know that Elissa throws up, and later complains about being filmed puking. It’s a terrible segment, except for GinaMarie’s excelling at taking the yogurt straight down her throat. The results are that GinaMarie’s team won, and the new have-nots are Jessie, Helen, Andy, and Candice. Andy is pissed and whining.

Immediately afterwards, Judd talks to Amanda about nominations. We know who she wants, and again she pushes for Howard, Spencer, or Candice to go up. This goes on a bit, but Amanda isn’t getting the answers she wants.

Filler moment number 5000. Yoga with Elissa...and Howard. Seriously, this is a waste of time.

Jessie and Elissa now head into the HOH to talk to Judd, and Elissa says this set of nominations will be a “gamechanger”. Judd announces that he wants to put up GinaMarie and Kaitlin, but Elissa doesn’t like that. “It’s a waste of a HOH.” She wants Aaryn to go home. “Aaryn is a ticking time bomb.” Seriously, what is the difference between the three girls? Why is Kaitlin going home a waste of a HOH, but not Aaryn?

(By the way, this segment is way out of place. This conversation happened Friday morning, before the Have-not competition, and before the “kiss the ring” segments we’ve seen with Amanda and Aaryn.)

Amanda is now raging about how the “house” wants Howard out. Andy says that Judd doesn’t want to put him up, but Amanda is adamant that he “HAS” to do that. Andy’s reply is that Howard is no threat to Judd, but Amanda counters that you “can’t play selfishly”. Um, what? Judd then walks in, and Amanda is all over him about his nominations. Judd says he doesn’t know who he is going to nominate, and Amanda goes off on her reasons once again. Sorry, folks, but this obsession with Howard is killing Amanda’s game. For once, Andy and I agree on something.

It’s now nomination time. Finally, after all of this filler. I’m ready for the conclusion of this episode. I am proud that Judd is able to read the script without any problems, and everybody else fulfills their roles. Spencer’s key is pulled out first, followed by Jessie, Elissa, Candice, McCrae, Andy, Helen, Howard, GinaMarie, and Amanda. Kaitlin and Arryn are the nominees. “Thanks, Judd”, says Amanda with a sarcastic twinge.

After a few diary room comments, that’s it for the show. DId it seem like it took three hours to you? Are you happy with Judd’s nominations? Let us know what you think!

The Night Owl

First off, a HUGE congrats to my favorite feed entertainment, Judd, for winning HOH tonight!!! I'm really excited for him!!

 

 

Unfortunately, for Judd to do what he wants this week he will have many people to overcome.  Directly after the live show the feeds came back to Amanda already bossing him around about how much she wants Howard out.  Jessie dared to suggest a different idea like maybe Kaitlin or Aaryn leaving, and Amanda immediately jumped down her throat.  She said everything she possibly could to Judd and everyone else about how "dangerous" Howard is and how important it is to backdoor him this week.

 

 

A little while later Judd got his HOH room and Helen and Elissa's butts remained firmly in place in the HOH bed cockblocking any game talk that could possibly take place by other people coming in and out of the room.  Spencer was able to grab a few precious moments with Judd in which he told Spencer "This is MY HOH and I'm not listening to what someone else tells me to do. I'm not putting you up no matter what. I would like to see a girl leave this week.".  Judd told Elissa and Spencer both that he would prefer to nominate Kaitlin and GinaMarie with GinaMarie being a pawn.  He stated that while Aaryn is a bad person and certainly not fun to be around, Kaitlin wins comps and comes very close to winning the ones she loses.  She is also very social and sweet when she wants to be, making her a bigger threat.  He said he would like to see Kaitlin voted out.

Elissa then pulled Judd aside and told him that she didn't like the idea of sending Kaitlin out and wanted to use "her" MVP to put Aaryn up with Aaryn to go OR to backdoor Spencer or Howard.  We of course know that Elissa will not get MVP this week because we are the ones making the third nomination.  However, the nomination will be the same as if Elissa were HOH, as I am positive Aaryn will be the one nominated. Judd finally gave in and told Elissa that if they had the chance to backdoor a bigger target they could definitely do that, but I believe he was just telling her what she wanted to hear.

 

 

Shortly after this conversation, there was a booze delivery and it was time for the Have-nots to eat.  For a little while everyone happily stuffed their faces and drank their alcohol while Helen droned on and on about being a mom.  She told pregnancy stories that no one cared about, but that was okay since everyone was getting to eat and celebrate.

 

 

During the Have-not feast, Judd found a minute to pull Jessie aside and ask her what she was thinking.  Jessie has been growing on me more and more lately.  In a true statement of how much smarter she is than I originally thought, she told Judd he needs to do what HE wants to do and not let Amanda and McCrae try to force him to get blood on his hands for them.  She told him that if Amanda wanted someone out, let her win HOH and do it.  They both agreed that they do not want a guy going home this week as 3 guys have left already.  Judd told her that he thinks he is going to put up Kaitlin and GinaMarie hoping for Kaitlin to go.

 

 

After his talk with Jessie, Judd tried to pull Aaryn up to his HOH room to let her know that she may be put up by the MVP, but that he was not planning to put her up himself, However, like maggots on dead meat, the troops immediately swarmed the HOH room.  Helen, Andy, Elissa, and Amanda were quite determined to stay in the HOH and eat and talk all night, so Judd resorted to talking game in the have not room.  He told Aaryn he was pretty sure Elissa was going to put her up, but that if he won veto he would likely take her down depending on whether the house would work with him or not and whether Elissa as MVP would work with him or not.  He said that if Elissa was against him and not willing to work with him he might as well just backdoor her instead.  This could be interesting since Elissa won't be getting MVP, but I think the HGs will think she is just lying about not having it.

 

 

A little while later up in the HOH room, Helen decided to give Judd a speech and demonstration on how to be HOH.  She literally gave him a tour of the bathroom and taught him how to feed the fish. I'm not kidding you guys. I can't make this stuff up. She ACTUALLY lectured him on how to HOH.  She then firmly planted her butt on the couch where she fell asleep trying to wait out the others in the room.  Eventually she FINALLY went back downstairs.

 

 

Not to be outdone, once the others started filing out of the HOH room, Elissa started asking Judd if she could sleep on the couch in the HOH instead of the bed everyone had opened up for her downstairs.  She claimed all kinds of reasons such as being a germaphobe etc..  but none of them really made sense. He said she could sleep there if BB would allow her to, but the consensus of the others in the room was that it had been tried before by Aaryn and that BB would not allow it.  She tried it anyway, until BB called her out and made her go downstairs.

Judd eventually got the chance to talk to Howard and Spencer alone.  They both just told him that he should do what is best for his game and not listen to what other people are telling him to do.  Neither tried to make any deals. They just told him that they were willing to have his back if he would have theirs.

While Judd was talking to Howard and Spencer, in the cockpit, Amanda, Andy, and McCrae were talking about how they now see the "Rachel" coming out in Elissa and all agreed that she is freaking them out and needs to go soon.  Amanda still wants Howard out this week and is attempting to make that happen, but she wants Elissa to go soon now.

 

 

Elissa snuck into where Helen was sleeping and the two of them droned on and on and on and on and on about how they HAVE to make it so that Howard or Spencer goes home.  They think Judd is "SO DUMB" for putting up the people he wants to put up.  They want to protect GinaMarie and Kaitlin and make sure that Howard or Spencer goes.  Elissa then said if she couldn't get one of the boys out it HAS to be Aaryn. I wonder how she will react when she ISN'T MVP this week...

Currently everyone is still awake, but not really game talking.  Judd is a little drunkenly (6 Coronas in) talking to Aaryn about how the MVP twist has made people bigger floaters than ever instead of extinguishing them.  He says now they just float to the MVP power.  He is right of course. 

 

 

Everyone is kind of winding down, and I don't expect much more to happen, so I'm going to wrap the blog up here.  Judd seems to be determined to do his own thing and not listen to other people. I am proud of him. I fully expect to see GinaMarie and Kaitlin nominated later today.  The Have-Not competition should come sometime early this morning. 

I'm excited about this week.  I thought it would be another long boring "Aaryn is the target and she is going" kind of week, just like last week with Jeremy.  That doesn't seem to be the case though.  The HOH wants different people out than the rest of the house, and no one is getting MVP.  The MVP vote will be America's, but the house and HOH are not really on board to vote out their nomination.  This could get very interesting. 

In recent minutes, Judd has really started heading towards GinaMarie possibly being his target because he just can't take anymore of the Nick talk and she doesn't want to be there.  I think this could just be drunk talk though.  I doubt GinaMarie will go over Kaitlin or Aaryn. 

Anyway, this could be an exciting week *fingers crossed*.  As always you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...
