Wash, Rinse, Repeat

The only thing which I didn't want to have happen last Thursday (July 25, 2013, during #BB15 episode 13) is exactly what happened: Aaryn won Head of Household. Again.

This newbie's preference would have been for either of the following:

- For Amanda, Andy, Candice, Elissa, GinaMarie, Howard, Jessie, or Spencer to win ... so that we could see how things would go in the house from an entirely different perspective, since they have not yet served as HOH. For example, I don't think I've heard Jessie say more than about ten words in the many hours I've watched the live feeds since starting around July 17. She doesn't seem to get much air time. McCrae gets air time ... but given how often he sleeps (usually not alone), his part in this show apparently isn't a speaking role.

- For Helen to get HOH again ... because she's my favorite house guest, and I hadn't bought in to #BB15 yet when she served in that role the first time.

The cameras give the most attention to whomever the HOH is and to the noisiest, most controversial, and/or most scheming of the house guests. When they're bothering to focus on talk, that is.

The feeds seem to devote hours to Amanda and McCrae sleeping (or ... not) under the covers during the day. Why don't they let us listen into more conversations? With 12 people there, isn't there pretty much somebody talking somewhere in the house? Their conversations don't have to be about the game to be more interesting than watching people nap (or ... not).

My first exposure to Big Brother -- not just during #BB15, but ever -- was when news of Aaryn's distasteful speech spilled over into mainstream media a few weeks ago, so I didn't exactly leap for joy when she was re-crowned. (Neither did most of the other house guests, if I read them right.) Just when I was getting into the show, it felt like we'd be in only for a summer rerun.

Even a newbie wonders if the producers conspire to give people like Aaryn more air time for spurious reasons. Being attractive can't hurt ratings.

All right, all right -- maybe not Helen again, even though my enthusiasm about her remains high. Not Helen or McCrae or Judd or Aaryn.

Why don't they disqualify previous Heads of Household from HOH competitions? As a newbie, it feels like the advantages to the show of an always-different-HOH would outweigh the disadvantages. Or if they're going to leave it open to everyone, should they make it extra difficult for previous HOHs to win?

How would you change HOH eligibility? Or should they leave it as-is? Comment below or hit me @uselesstraffic.

Paranoia, The Destroyer

Silly boy, you self-destroyer 

Paranoia, the destroyer 

Self-destroyer, wreck your health

Destroy your friends, destroy yourself

                 Kinks "Destroyer"

 

Yeah yeah, Scott's usually the one to post lyrics but this song has been running through my head all day after Spencer used the POV he won on Saturday and Aaryn put Candice up on the block in his place.

Actually ever since Amanda was put up by "America" the house has been non-stop paranoia.  Amanda is super worried she might go up.  And late last night as Ash mentioned she started to suspect Judd of being some kind of sneaky mastermind.  18 hours later she now seems convinced that Judd is MVP this week and may have even been MVP LAST week.   The running around she has done today from HG to HG may in the end come back to haunt her.

Through all of this they still seem to be targeting Howard to go home, however Spencer is making a bit of an effort to rally the minority of the house to vote out Amanda thus making a 'bold' move.

Its really a strange season.  Helen has been completely obsessed with the Jury and her obsession has worked its way into others thinking.  We don't even know when the just starts yet but franly they should be more concerned about their alliances and not who they want out before or after Jury.

Some have called today the most boring day of the season.  I don't think thats the case but it certainly hasn't been one to write a huge blog post about.  So with that I sign off ;)

Power of Veto Ceremony Results

Today the Power of Veto Ceremony was held and as we expected Kaitlin used it on herself and Helen put Jeremy up in her place.

Now Jeremy, Spencer (Elissa's MVP nom) and Aaryn are nominated with the eviction scheduled for Thursday.

Odds are pretty high that Jeremy will be the one going and so far he doesn't seem that interested in staying since the meeting - he's already gotten into a argument with Candice over Candice's intentions towards Amanda early on (claiming Candice campaigned to get Amanda out). 

I really thought that Aaryn might be the one to go home since eliminating Jeremy will mean 3 guys in a row and a ratio or 8 women to 5 men in the house.   If Jeremy goes this will be the first season of Big Brother where three people of the same sex have been evicted (or kicked out or left voluntarily) at the start since Big Brother 3.  That season 3 women were the first three out (Lori, Tonya and Amy - Amy eventually returned).

Today Helen decided to address the cameras (again) and talk to Jeremy's mom - implying he was getting what he deserved for his actions in the house and she was sorry - Helen finished by blowing a kiss to Jeremy's mom.

I really really really hope this alliance of Elissa and Helen ends soon - the Mom Alliance is going to turn the house into a summer camp much like Big Brother 6 when Maggie and company would sit up in the HoH room and talk about being the good people (Helen uses the term 'good people' a lot).

Tonight Helen has scheduled a "Nail Party" for the girls and is having Kaitlin co-host it with her as a way to make her feel good especially since she will now be the reason her boyfriend Jeremy leaves on Thursday.

The Night Owl

Well, the shit hit the fan in the BB house tonight!  First there was some game talk so I will get that little tidbit out of the way first.

 

The Moving Company had several meetings of the minds both in the HOH and the Hammock to discuss the plan, make sure it was still on, and discuss who they would like to see go next.  They ultimately came to the conclusion that it doesn't matter who goes next as long as it isn't one of them.  My personal favorite part of these conversations was Nick talking about the insanity (while making wrist slashing motions) of having to "hang out and listen to GinaMarie's garbage pail mouth and put up with Aaryn's stupid bullshit" while pretending to be in the BlondeTourage.

 

 

BUT THEN THEY GOT ALCOHOL!!!

 

Okay, lots and lots happened and if you have the feeds and want to see it you should flashback to around midnight BB time when the Have Nots went off food restriction. (did I mention the have nots were allowed to eat and drink?)

Before midnight, Jeremy decided that he would steal the entire bottle of red wine that Elissa had been looking forward to and drink it all himself..sharing only a little with Aaryn.  He got pretty buzzed and then went out to the hot tub with Aaryn while the have nots had their "yay we can eat" party.  Well, Aaryn decided that it just wouldn't be any fun for everyone else to be having a good time and decided to get up on her mean girl high horse and tell Jeremy how everyone was "mean mugging" her as if she stole the wine.  In reality no one was looking at Aaryn at all and the only thing said about the wine up to that point was Elissa saying "where is the red. I've been a have not and I wanted some. That sucks.".  She didn't say it to anyone in particular though.

After Aaryn got Jeremy all riled up about them getting "mean mugged", Jeremy decided to go into the kitchen in the middle of the party and start yelling at people.  He said a whole bunch of things that didn't make sense along the lines of "go ahead, put me up. I came here to win and it was all me. Ya'll can just be mad at me" etc..   At some point he yelled specifically at Helen and she started to cry and got really upset about it. 

He also yelled either at or about Amanda? It's hard to keep up with.  Anyway, he then went out to the hot tub. Judd followed and said something along the lines of "I'm just happy to be able to eat"  to which Aaryn replied "you don't need to get all snappy with ME Judd. I've had your back this whole time!".  WHAT?!

Then Amanda decided she had to get her 2 cents back in at Jeremy and came out to the hot tub and started yelling at him about how she didn't say anything about the wine except to "check people's teeth if they wanted to know who drank it."  So Jeremy vs Amanda commenced and they yelled for a while and Amanda cried.  She eventually went inside.

Meanwhile, Kaitlin who had been hiding in the back bedroom decided that she was mad enough to need to call Jeremy inside so that she could confront him, but on her way through the kitchen, Elissa decided to yell at Kaitlin, but that tiff only lasted for less than five minutes and then Kaitlin began beckoning Jeremy to come inside so she could have a  piece of the action.  Jeremy however was not ready to come inside since he was busy fighting with Andy at the hot tub!!

Eventually Jeremy came inside and Kaitlin told him how stupid he was being and told him that he was going to get David sent home etc.. etc.. and he asked her if she was breaking up with him and wanted her ring back. She said "I'm not saying anything like that." and eventually went outside. 

Candice, not to be left out of the action, came in to defend Elissa and Helen to Jeremy but was only able to do so for a moment before Aaryn decided that this battle better turn into a hat issue again and SHE began fighting with Candice.  That fight died down for a little while...long enough for Gina Marie to convince Jeremy that he needed to apologize to the still sobbing Helen.  So off he went to apologize to Helen.

Aaryn, was not to be shaken though and continued to fight with Candice while Jeremy apologized to Helen.  Candice then came with my favorite line by far of the whole fight: "I ain't afraid of you, boo thing.".

Eventually, Judd, McCrae, Amanda, and Andy made it up to the HOH room and started talking about how Aaryn MUST go because she is the starter of all of the shit. 

All of these fights and discussions went on for a pretty long time and it would be impossible for me to include everything that happened here.  I hope you guys have flashback.  All I can do now is let a stream of pictures speak for themselves. 

Oh, on the smarter side of the house, Howard was nowhere to be seen or heard during all of this and stayed away from the Drama.  Nick was in the room, but as usual had on his "completely no reaction" face the entire time. 

So here you go...the fight in pictures:

 

 

 Aaryn drinking and shit talking

 

Jeremy with stolen wine

 

Amanda vs Jeremy

 

A lot of people fighting

 

Kaitlin vs Jeremy

 

Candice vs the room/hat

 

Andy vs the room

 

Helen after the fact

 

Aaryn still being a bitch vs Candice part 2

 

Apologies and Aaryn still fighting

 

Completely unaffected

 

Well..unaffected until the meeting with McCrae and realization that the house was turning on itself as planned.

 

You guys!! This is amazing drama that happened before BB would usually even start.  What an exciting night.  If you don't have the feeds you really should consider them. It's only going to get more volatile.  I'm spent for tonight and they haven't even headed to bed yet.  Until tomorrow night... (unless they get into it again in which case you will get a follow up.)
