Big Brother Season 15, Episode 8 Recap

Strap in, kids. Tonight’s going to be a wild ride. If you have watched any of the feeds since Thursday night, or listened to last night’s Big Brother Gossip Show (and if you haven’t, why?), then you know wild shit went down after the live show was over. There was a bit of an online debate regarding if any of that would be shown, but a source told us a few hours before the broadcast that it would indeed be addressed.

It’s a “good”(?) sign that there’s a disclaimer before the show even begins. After the recap of events, we go back to Nick’s eviction. GinaMarie is a mess. “My heart is in pieces.” Oh lord, this is pathetic. Jeremy says he was “flabbergasted beyond belief...we have some goobers in the group”. Aaryn now realizes she’s part of the “minority of the house”. We all know being a minority is her worst dream.

Helen, meanwhile, is celebrating because “her” plan came through. I’m putting in the parenthesis because it wasn’t due to Helen’s work that Elissa was saved. It was Amanda that turned the boys.

We get more footage of GinaMarie bawling as Nick walks out, and Elissa looks at the camera to say she loves America. Jeremy is seen mouthing, “what the fuck”, as Amanda winks at McCrae. GinaMarie runs into the bathroom,, and Aaryn says she has to get herself together for the HOH competition.

Kaitlin, meanwhile, is already yelling at Jessie, who denies voting against their side. GinaMarie comes back out and starts yelling about Elissa’s MVP wins. “All of you’s are so stupid! Cook your own damn chicken parm!” It goes on and on, as Amanda laughs in another room. “You guys are scrubs! You guys are losers!” Amanda is dying.

McCrae then tells us about how he had to choose between the Movers and Amanda. I mae my choice. GinaMarie is still screaming, and Spencer talks about how Jeremy is the one who is making it hard for the Movers to stay together. Instead of giving credit to Amanda for switching sides, he says it was due to Helen’s “emotional pitch”. Ugh. We get a recap of what supposedly happened, instead of what actually happened. Howard claims that he didn’t change votes because he wanted some “wiggle room”.

We then jump to Helen’s HOH victory. She does her wacky little dance, and then tells America’s children to “study”. Ugh. While she’s celebrating, the other side is beyond upset. Jeremy says it’s “not over yet. I’m going to hold my chin high as it’s too pretty to hold it low.” Gross.

Helen,, Elissa, and Candice celebrate their win. Amanda and Jessie also come in, and Helen again does her dumb dance as Elissa says they’re going to change the attitude in the house. Jeremy comes in and congratulates her on her victory. “I am flabbergasted by your game play.” Really?

Aaryn and Kaitlyn go into the lounge to do what they do best...whine. Again, they complain about being the “minority”. GinaMarie then comes in with Nick’s hat and shorts. “I really liked him. I really liked him. We were getting closer.” She’s just nuts. She even blows her nose into the shorts in the diary room.

Jump ahead a few hours, and Aaryn, Kaitlin, and Jeremy are reclaiming the beds they want. too bad one of them is the one that Jessie has been sleeping in her entire stay. They go full “mean girls” on her, and complain about her changing loyalties. Jessie counters that they’ve never had her back, and Kaitlin commands her to “get the fuck out of here”. Judd comes in, and pulls her out of the room. “Judd can be your fifth chance at a showmance.”

The catty comments contniue, and then suddenly Aaryn tears apart Candice’s bed as Kaitlin laughs. We go to commercials...

When we return, Jessie comes back in and climbs into her bed. Kaitlin decides to also get into her bed, and Jessie asks her to leave. Candice then comes in, and wonders what the story is with her bed. Kaitlin plays dead. Jeremy then comes in, and climbs into Jessie’s bed. Jeremy and Kaitlin continue to harass her, and Candice jumps in.

Aaryn then walks into the room, and Candice complains about her bed being flipped. Aaryn then goes into full stereotype “what’cha gonna do, guuuurl?” mode. Howard walks in, and Candice informs him what happened as Aaryn goes into that type of talking again. Howard tries to get Candice to leave the room as now GinaMarie gets into Candice’s face. Finally, Howard lifts her over his shoulders and carries her out of the room as the mean kids laugh.

Howard pleads with Candice to let them have the bed for the night, as he can’t control his temper if this continues. Candice complains about all of the racial slurs she’s had to endure these past three weeks, and Howard embraces her. Howard understands how she wants to stand up for what is right, but one can’t do that in this game. Seriously, you should go watch this on Flashback, as it is a tear jerker. Even this curmudgeon had to wipe a tear or two away when he first saw this go down. Candice finally leaves the room, and Howard sits down and prays with tears in his eyes.

Meanwhile, the mean girls are still yelling at Jessie, and Amanda overhears it. She’s had enough. This is another great moment, as she bitches at them for their cattiness. Not only to the rest of the house, but each other. “That’s why she came over to the other side. It all makes sense!” She goes on about how everybody is talking about Aaryn’s racial comments, and Aaryn denies making any of them. “I tried to help you.” She ends it by saying she’s going to go have fun with the other side of the house. Again, go watch this on Flashback. It was amazing.

Candice is now in the bathroom crying. She says she has never seen anybody as awful as Aaryn, and she tells the whole story of what happened to Helen, ANdy, and Elissa. Helen has had enough, and she says that anybody who has ever been a victim of abuse is cheering for her right now. “We’re going to vote them out.”

After commercials, Amanda and McCrae are laying in the lounge together, and McCrae says he has a secret to tell her. He then tells her all about The Moving Company. He’s hoping this creates a bigger bond between the two as he informs her of the whole story. Amanda says at first she thinks good job as it even fooled her. He goes on to say about how they told him he needs to drop her, but no way was he going to drop his queen.

Meanwhile, GinaMarie is still crying over Nick, and Aaryn and Candice try to cheer her up. Candice says she can’t help “as a woman” to not console her. Aaryn then apologizes. Sort of. She says she has “nothing against any other race”, and claims in the diary room that she is not that type of girl. Of course, she also doesn’t Candice to use it against her. Candice says she accepts her apology, but in the diary room says she doesn’t believe her. “To me, her apology is like dirt.”

It’s Have-Not competition time, and it’s a barnyard setup. After the seriousness of the last half hour, I could give a shit about this, except for the fact that Howard wants to throw it so that Aaryn, GinaMarie, and Kaitlin are have-nots for the week. Let’s jump to the conclusion - the Have-nots this week are Amanda, McCrae, Judd, and Jessie. Somehow, GinaMarie concludes that this is retribution for Nick’s departure.

Jeremy now runs upstairs to confess all to Helen. I just don’t get why it’s so important for everybody to know about The Moving company. Helen is all cocky because she “killed the Moving Company”. No, you didn’t. Jeremy also throws Kaitlin under the bus, and he says he “didn’t come in here to make a wife”. Helen loves this, and “maybe I can use Jeremy in this game”.

We’re showing way too much of this “kiss the ring” stuff, as Howard now comes in. Unlike Jeremy, though, he doesn’t follow through in telling all. He lies about the Movers. He lies about his vote. He finally admits that he voted to evict Elissa, and Helen starts crying. He still lies about the Movers, and Helen is disappointed.

It’s finally nomination time, and Elissa’s key is first, followed by Andy, Candice, McCrae, Amanda, GinaMarie, Judd, Jessie, Howard, Spencer, and Jeremy. Aaryn and Kaitlin are the nominees. Helen gives a bullshit speech about how they are strong competitors and they can save themselves in the veto competition. Ho hum.

Little of substance is said in the final seconds of the show. They hate being on the block. Jeremy didn’t come here to get married. Helen wants Aaryn to go home, but she has bigger targets. “Watch out. Here comes Helen.”

What did you think of tonight’s episode? Were you happy with how they treated the extreme behavior? How about those noms? Tell us what you think!

Big Brother Gossip Show #304: Bye Bye Moving Company

It was another week of weirdness (to say the least) in the Big Brother house, and we attempted to cover it all in this week's episode. Mike was missing tonight, but Scott and Colette rambled for almost two hours. Racism, the dissolution of The Moving Company, Helen's HOH win, and the continued bad actions of the "Mean Girls" are just some of tonight's topics.

Like always, you can find this on Scott's The Ledge app, stream it via iTunes, or...

 

As always, thanks to those that listen to us live, and to everybody that has been downloading it every week. Also, thank you to Ash for the audio clips, and for Colette's expert analysis!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 7 Recap

A word of warning to the few who read these recaps. I’ve been in a foul mood all day. Like “screw this world” kind of foul. It will be a miracle if this marathon set of simple words even makes it to the web page, as the laptop could easily be tossed at my television.

Why the anger? Until last night, this eviction looked to be my highlight of the year. The production “plant” was all set to go, and had done absolutely nothing to save herself. It looked like the eviction was going to be a formality, and then maybe this MVP silliness could become a fun feature for the year.

Then a tiny political strategist (supposedly) got into the act. From day one, she had been the person campaigning for Botox Baby, even though she was sitting right next to her on the block. All of her prancercizing seemed to do little good, though, until suddenly out of the blue a young real estate woman took over.

Now it appears that tonight will be my worst nightmare. Unless there were some last-minute reconsideration of the plans, a certain stupidly named alliance will be finished. Which is kind of cool, except that a moron will have been saved and a couple of non-stop babblers will suddenly believe they have some power.

I’m jumping ahead a bit, here, so let’s get right into the show. Like every episode, we kick off where we left off last night, with the replacement of Jeremy with Nick as the third nominee. Jeremy is still confident that Elissa is going home, while Elissa drawwls about how Nick is such a huge threat. Nick doesn’t believe he is in danger. Then we get an overly long, overly dramatic explanation from Helen.

Amanda is then shown talking to Candice, asking about what they should do this week. Candice wants to ensure that a man goes, and Amanda reminds her that her vote is really important. She heads into the have-not room to tell Elissa that she thinks they have the numbers. Helen enters the room, which means that the conversation goes on way too long. Helen is getting suspicious of Spencer, and this vote will show if he’s with them or not.

Now Andy is talking with Helen, who says if Nick doesn’t “go home this week, we can’t win this game”. Andy counters that at this point, that side of the house isn’t going after them. Helen reminds him that as long as Elissa is around, she will be a target. They just have to be ready for the rage of Jeremy, Kaitlin, and GinaMarie.

Now we see Elissa crawling into bed with Jessie (wait, what?), and she tells her how important it is to get such a competitor out of the house. Jessie says that for the whole time she has been dead set on getting her out, but with Elissa now giving her attention she’s reconsidering.

Jessie then heads into the have-not room to talk to Helen. Yeah, it’s a recap of what they already said, and how the biggest, greatest alliance of all time will protect her. Until they don’t, actually.

Everybody is now sitting outside, and Howard heads inside to talk to Nick. He’s worried about the Amanda/McCrae relationship, especially since Amanda is so smart and strong. Spencer wanders in, and Howard leaves. They continue to talk about Amanda, and how they don’t believe McCrae will get her to vote as the Movers want them to.

They pull McCrae aside, and inform him that Amanda is going to figure out the Movers. He tells them “I need you guys to trust me”. He affirms he’s 100% with them, and will cut her out if he needs to. Sure you will.

McCrae goes back to Amanda, who says they have to keep Elissa. Amanda is already getting the vibes that McCrae isn’t telling her something. “I think it just makes sense to keep her here”, she says. McCrae says this week sucks, as he either has to cut loose the Movers or Amanda.

Julie now talks to the house, and the first question goes to Jeremy about not being worried about being nominated. “I was ready.” She then asks about showmances, including those who want to be in one. Yes, that question then goes to Jessie. She’s asked about why there are so many relationships, and she babbles some nonsensical garbage. Julie then reminds everybody that they’re watched and heard 24 hours a day. Amanda is asked if she keeps that in mind, and she says that after awhile you forget about it “all the time”. Aaryn is also asked, and claims that she’s just a “very open person. Everybody who is here knows a lot about me, and so does America now.”

Julie’s response? “Yes, we all do.” With a nice side of sarcasm. This was my highlight of the show. Julie reminds the nominees that one of them will be leaving, and she’ll be back with them later.

With that opening, Julie talks about how some of the comments have stirred up controversy for the show. This is a setup for footage from the house, starting with Candice complaining about things Arryn says in her presence. Howard talks about the white fish/black fish joke she had said earlier, and we get a replay of it. “You can’t play the game like that”, says Howard, who adds in the diary room he’s sensitive about it since he’s from the south. “You feel like there’s a personal vendetta, and that game play could be derailed because of it.”

Amanda replies that she doesn’t think that Aaryn is intentional in those comments. Just ignorant. In the diary room, Amanda says that she is sensitive to these remarks, and heads into the HOH to tell her that people are talking about these comments. Aaryn’s reply? “That’s the most obnoxious, annoying things I’ve ever heard.” Amanda goes on, and Aaryn carries on that she doesn’t care. “I really just think that’s the most immature thing ever. They call me Barbie and all sorts of shit about me being blonde all the time. What’s the difference?”

Oh boy, amanda is pissed. “That really shows her character.” The segment ends with a angry “stay with us” from Julie.

After commercials, it’s eviction time. Elissa goes first, and I don’t really understand anything she says. Actually, she acts like she just won an Emmy or something. “I am a target, but Nick’s the bigger threat.” Nick is up next, and he talks about how much he loves everybody. Helen is last, and she goes on about how she’s a huge Big Brother fan. She throws out a line against Jeremy, too.

The voting now starts with Jeremy, who votes to evict Elissa, as does Kaitlin. Andy, though, happily votes to evict Nick. GinaMarie is next, and votes against Elissa. Judd’s vote goes against Nick, as does Spencer and Jessie. Howard votes against Elissa, though, but McCrae’s big stand is with his girl as he votes to evict Nick! Amanda does the same and Candice. Nick is out 7-4!

Too bad there is a delay before the votes are read, but after commercials Julie reads the results. His eyes widen in shock, and GinaMarie covers her face. Nick hugs Aaryn, and then GinaMarie breaks down before Nick walks out the door.

Before his interview with Julie, we see GinaMarie continue to wail, as Howard consoles her. The rest of the house says nothing. Even after going into another room, we hear her wailing.

Julie asks Nick what is going through his mind, and he says that he believes it’s all Spencer’s fault. The audience doesn’t agree, and Julie asks why he thinks Spencer is controlling the house. He says he thinks everybody trusted him. Julie says that is the case, and if he’s mad about it. Nick says he’s not, and Juie confides that McCrae didn’t vote for him. Nick admits that the Moving Company was a “fake” game, and as you go through the time in the house you develop real game. He’s then asked if the Moving Company is done, and he says that since Amanda has figured it out it probably is over. They just couldn’t keep it secret.

We get the goodbye messages, and McCrae says he had to do it for his game. Jeremy says he doesn’t understand why Nick is gone, and he’s not happy to live another week with this “Phenbot”. Speaking of that creature, she slurs a goodbye to him and other stuff I can’t understand. Helen gives him some platitudes, and says she played a big part in his departure. GinaMarie ends it with how much she likes him. Julie ends it by saying he should have kissed Jessie. “She would have given you a vote!”

So it is now HOH competition time, and we start with a package of footage from last night. The HG’s were awakened a few times during the night with “clues” for tonight’s competition...and certain people didn’t really participate.

Heading to the backyard, it’s a true/false question competition based on the “deliveries” from last night. A wrong answer eliminates you. Judd and Jeremy are out on the first question. So much for that “photoshop memory”, Jeremy! GinaMarie, Andy, Amanda, Spencer and Elissa are out on the second question. Candice goes out next, and everybody left answers the next couple of questions correctly. It’s time for the tie-breaker question, which is the number of “BB Cola” cans “delivered” last night. The answer is 168, and all but McCrae give that answer. The second tie-breaker is how long it took Jeremy to win the second veto competition. Helen is the closest, and is the new HOH...which means we get her super-awkward dance. (BTW, Kaitlin was in second place.) What a different week that would have made!

So that’s it. Nick is gone, and Helen is HOH! America knows that Aaryn doesn’t give a fuck about being labelled a racist, and GinaMarie is considering suicide? Are you happy with these results? Are you glad the Movers are out of business? Or that slurring Elissa is still around? Tell us what you think!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 6 Recap

A simple intro to what should be a simple (and annoying episode). MVP silliness. Veto comp hosted by a Big Brother alum. A “thrown” performance that wasn’t good enough for the deal maker. Filler. Nominations.

So let’s start with the reactions to Aaryn’s nominations of Elissa and Helen. Guess what, neither are happy! Elissa doesn’t understand how people say she is “making waves”, and complains that it was “vindictive” to nominate Helen because of her. Helen thinks Aaryn is threatened by her friendship with Elissa. For some strange reason, Helen believes they were put up together to create a fight between the two of them. Hmmm, not really.

Helen enters the have-not room with tears in her eyes, followed by Elissa. “How original, right”, says Elissa. They hug, and Elissa goes into the standard Reilly “she’s so mean to me” mantra. Just to make sure you understand the mood of the room, the sad background music comes up as Helen promises to help save Elissa.

Candice joins the pair, and Helen tells her she shouldn’t hang out with the “pariahs of the house”. Again, we get to hear Candice’s (correct) theory about the all-boys alliance. Elissa almost forgot her script, but finally says “please, Brenchel fans, vote for us for MVP”. No worries about that.

In the storage room, the Movers are talking about how all of the women are going crazy. “I can’t wait to send them all home”, says Jeremy. He says that the girls are going to go home “one by one by one”. Yeah, right.

Helen is now upstairs playing chess with Howard, and after Kaitlin walks out of the HOH, she asks if he would mind if she talked to Aaryn. Helen still wants to work with Aaryn, who says it was hard to put her up. The music builds up as they continue to talk about secretly being an alliance, and Helen even says that putting her up was a smart move.

Ugh, here we go with the MVP bullshit...and yes, it was indeed Elissa. Yeah, act surprised, you dumb twit. “Like, how?” Really? In case you forgot how MVP works, she reads the exact same card from last week. “America, thank you so much...I’m doing this for you.” Ugh.

Elissa heads into the Have-not room to tell Helen, who does the weirdest little dance I’ve ever seen. They decide not to tell anybody, and Elissa says that Jeremy is her ultimate target. Helen is thinking ahead, though, and wants to know who would be the replacements? “Kaitlin.” But if...oh god, Helen, you’re thinking way beyond Elissa’s line of thinking. So now the question is whether they immediately put up Jeremy, or wait to do a backdoor. Ultimately, they go with Jeremy after all.

Filler time, as GinaMarie flirts with Nick. Poor Nick, even though he plays it well in the diary room. He’s not interested in Jessie. He’s not interested in GinaMarie. That doesn’t stop CBS from pushing it, though.

We’re spared from more of this ugliness, as it is time to pick POV players. First off, there’s the MVP nomination, and after a long buildup it is indeed Jeremy. Aaryn pulls out Amanda and Nick’s names. Nick is happy to be a part of it, and hopes to be able to save his “homeboy” Jeremy. GinaMarie will host, and she couldn’t be happier.

Elissa admits she’s a bit concerned over her choice as Jeremy, as he’s pretty fired up. To make sure we know just how focused he is, he puts on a show in the diary room on how he is such a “manimal”.

Arryn, meanwhile, heads upstairs. The girls all make fun of Elissa’s choice, as Jeremy is going to kick her ass. “This is the worst move she could possibly make”, says Kaitlin.

GinaMarie is asking Nick if it is smart for him to try to win this comp, and he thinks it is. They’re interrupted by Elissa, who is worried because “Nick is a fierce competitor”. She proposes a two week deal with Nick, and if he doesn’t throw it she will put him up as a replacement. He says that this is a win/win for him, as if he loses he won’t go up but a win also ensures he won’t go up. They shake on the deal.

Ugh, even more Elissa time. Her and Helen are crying about missing their kids, and Howard comes in to cheer them up. He leads them in a prayer. Please find me my bucket to puke in. This leads to a medley of Howard praying. Great for him, but a bore for viewers. Move on!

It’s now veto competition time, and GinaMarie is dressed as a baby. Yes, I typed that correctly. GinaMarie is dressed as a baby. Fitting, right. She introduces a video message from Britney. She shows her pregnant belly, and she tells them to head outside for the cmopetition.

The backyard is dressed up as a baby nursery, and they have to create a “giant baby mobile”. The first one to perfectly balance ten stuffed animals wins the veto.

After a bunch of cutesy diary room comments, the contest begins. This isn’t exactly exciting. Nick again explains his idea is to actually try to win, and...that’s enough. Why we need everybody involved to tell us how this works is beyond me.

For a second it looked like Amanda was going to win, but one of the animals was touching the ground. She makes an adjustment, and it still didn’t work. “Much like a baby, I need a bottle...of vodka”. She’s really getting a good edit.

Jeremy then tells us how he figured out how to win this comp, and he starts moving faster. Helen, though, is close to him, but Jeremy suddenly sprints to the win! Ugh, he is really the worst winner ever. Helen knows that somehow they need to come up with a bigger threat than the two of them. Well, a bigger threat than Elissa. Nobody thinks Helen is a threat.

After commercials, we get some filler of Jeremy and Kaitlin making out. They quit kissing, though, as Kaitlin is worried that she may be going the same route as David did last week. Yeah, the porn music comes up as they keep kissing. Oh wait, she’s upset again. Oh wait, they’re kissing again. Ok, enough.

Once the making out is over, Jeremy heads down to chat with the Movers to make sure that Elissa is the one that goes home this week. He tells Jeremy that if somehow Elissa doesn’t go, that means that a Mover made a wrong vote. Nick is not happy with this. “We’re a business.”

Jeremy moves on to the other Movers with the same story, and none of them are happy about this. “God is the only boss I listen to”, complains Howard. “Who died and made you boss”, asks McCrae. They’re all becoming a bit suspicious of Jeremy.

We move on to Elissa, who is talking to Candice. Like before, Candice wants to get rid of the guys, and complains that girls never make big moves in the house. There’s no way that a girl can be put on the block to replace Jeremy. Candice wants Nick put up, and that he’s working with Jeremy.

Elissa is conflicted, though. She promised to not put him up, and doesn’t want to go against her word. Candice moves on with the reasons why Nick has to go, and Elissa is shown nodding her head in approval.

Before we get to the veto ceremony, Elissa is seen going up to Nick and asking if he’d vote to evict Kaitlin. He gives an unintelligible answer, and says he’s not in “gameface right now”. She says that if he can’t answer, she may have to break their deal. He wants some time to think about it. Yep, she has her way out of their deal. In her mind, at least. (Especially since they didn’t show the conversation where Nick did try to work with her.)

It’s NOW finally veto meeting, and they still have Jeremy stare at the wall of keys. Why? We know he’s saving himself. Oh yeah, we have to have the commentary from those on the block, or possibly going on the block.

Everybody is called in, and Jeremy indeed saves himself. Elissa gets up, and after many, many seconds of buildup, has nominated Nick. GinaMarie is about to die! The Movers aren’t happy either!

So that’s it, after blah blah blah I want to win blah blah blah the game’s not over blah blah blah Momsquad. Wait, Momsquad??? Ugh.

Your thoughts on this episode? Did Elissa break her word? Were you happy to see Britney back? How bad does Elissa read her script? Tell us your thoughts!
