Big Brother Season 15, Episode 9 Recap

After Sunday night’s dramatic events, tonight’s show is bound to be a sleeper. It’s going to be chock full of filler, along with the not-so-dramatic reveal of the MVP and the veto competition. Seriously, this is going to be a snoozer of a show, filled with lots of pontificating from the so-called “good people”.

So let’s get this over with. You know the drill. The show starts with the predictable nominations of Kaitlin and Aaryn. The nominees are angry; Helen and her nerd herd posse are thrilled and believe this is the biggest move in Big Brother history, especially if she can put her real target up as a replacement nominee.

Jeremy is in the bedroom now with Kaitlin, who says she’s not worried. Jeremy knows that he’s probably the third nominee, or will go up as a replacement. “There’s no doubt in my mind.” Kaitlin is a bit more upbeat, as she says everybody is after Aaryn. He says she’s right, and kisses her.

Helen then convenes her nerds up to the HOH to talk about the third nominee. She’s joined by Amanda and McCrae, and informs them of Howard’s lie. Yet, it’s Jeremy she wants out, but she wants to “backdoor Jeremy with a smile on our faces”. Amanda is pushing for putting up Howard instead of Spencer, with Jeremy as the replacement.

Helen now meets with Spencer, who knows he has to spill the beans about the Movers. She obviously already knows, and thanks him for finally informing her. For some reason, she starts bawling about how this alliance “makes me look like an idiot to America”. In the diary room, she claims to be faking all of her house tears, but I don’t buy. She gives Spencer a lecture, and they hug and he walks out. Judging by the diary room, though, Spencer seems to be buying her act.

Spencer heads downstairs and informs Howard that Helen does know about the Movers, and her feelings are hurt. Uh oh. “I don’t know if I’m going to be able to face them”, he says.

Ugh, MVP time, and our winner is dolled up again. “Shut up”, says Elissa as she enters the room, and I wholeheartedly agree. “Oh my gawwwwwwsh.” Why she has to read that same script for the third week is above me, but whatever.

Elissa is now talking to McCrae about the MVP, and Amanda walks in as she talks about how it’s going to kill her to put up Howard. Amanda says she HAS to put him up, and Elissa complains about how she supposedly wasn’t involved in that decision. “It’s super frustrating. I feel so used. UGGGGGH!” My feelings exactly. On the ugh. (Conveniently, they edited out the part where they agree to let McCrae pretend he won MVP. This actually is why Amanda is angry a couple of paragraphs down. One simple edit makes a huge difference, folks!)

More Movers talk, as Howard now comes up to confess his sins. Why does it matter? They had an alliance, so what? Why is this whole week focused on this big “lie”? It drives me up the wall. Howard apologizes, and the tears come out from not only Helen but for some reason Jessie. Helen again gives a lecture.

Elissa asks everybody to leave the room, and she then asks Helen if the feelings for her are genuine. She complains that she’s just being used for her MVP’s. “This is as much your HOH as it is mine”, consoles Helen. They conclude it doesn’t matter who is put up, as they’re going to backdoor Jeremy anyway.

Amanda and McCrae are brought back up, and Amanda complains again about putting up Spencer instead of Howard. Elissa whines...and whines some more about how all of the strong guys are going to be against her. Elissa says in the diary room that she doesn’t like her agenda. Amanda’s point is that Spencer is not as big of a threat as Howard, and points out how Howard has not voted with them either week. It’s still a problem for Elissa, as she says she has to do the “dirty work” anyway. We see fake tears as she says “ultimately it comes down to what is good for my game”.

There should be another segment here where Elissa looks like a complete fool after making (but denying) her MVP pick. Oh well, gotta look good to ensure those phony MVP votes!

Time for the MVP reveal, and it is Spencer, who says he knew it was going to happen. Elissa says her only reason to nominate him is because of the “pressure” that Amanda and McCrae put on her. BULLSHIT!!! Helen then pulls out the chips to see who CBS wants to play for veto, and it’s GinaMarie and Candice. Jeremy is pissed because he knows what will probably happen. The host for the competition will be Judd.

Before the competition, though, Spencer and Candice head up to the HOH. Helen tells them that they need to win so that Jeremy can be backdoored. Spencer couldn’t be happier with this plan. Meanwhile, Jeremy knows what’s going on, and is a bit mope-y as he talks to Kaitlin and Aaryn, After he walks out of the room, they continue their whinefest. It would feel awful for them to win veto and be replaced by Jeremy. They actually talk to GinaMarie about winning the veto and not saying it so that he can’t be backdoored. “I want to keep these nominations the same”, says Kaitlin in the diary room. WTF? Actually, I should say WHAT THE FUCK???

Kaitlin is now talking to Amanda about not being pulled off, and Amanda tells her that she’s crazy. Kaitlin thinks that Aaryn would be the one to go home if the noms don’t change, and Amanda says that’s crazy because Aaryn is alone while Kaitlin has Jeremy.

It’s now veto comp time. There are a bunch of pieces of artwork that has house guest pictures in the place of the classic pieces. They have to jump on a trampoline to look over the “wall” to see how the pictures are placed on the wall. The person who recreates that wall in the shortest time wins.

LIke always, I’m not going to recap every description and incident that happens, especially after Candice’s whiny voice slowly reciting her script. GinaMarie gets her panties all wet by seeing a piece involving Nick. The results are in, and Candice’s time was 8:46, while GinaMarie was 8:56. Spencer was 12:19, Aaryn placed at 9:50, but Kaitlin is the new leader at 7:09. It’s all up to Helen, but alas her time was 8:55. Kaitlin is the new veto holder!

It’s apparently a big decision, because taking herself down is going to mean Jeremy is going home. Helen adds to the fake controversy by also complaining. No need to fret, ladies. Amanda already saved the day!

After commercials, Kaitlin and Jeremy are again babbling about her “awkward position”. Jeremy babbles in the diary room that he didn’t come to play a game where a bunch of dumb girls will beat him, so he’s going to use his charms to get Kaitlin to not user her veto. Kaitlin’s idea is to get Helen to put up Howard instead. Good luck with that.

Kaitlin dutifully makes her way upstairs, and Camp Counselor Helen congratulates her on her win. She openly admits that Jeremy is somebody she wants to go up, and if she doesn’t do that “the house will kill me”. Kaitlin says Howard is untrustworthy, and is throwing competitions. Helen agrees, but because Jeremy has treated everybody so badly that the house is making her put him up. In case you forgot, they replay the “winegate” silliness. Kaitlin continues to campaign, and somehow Helen calls her “sweet”. Sweet whore, maybe, but “sweet”? No.

It’s finally starting to sink in that Jeremy is toast, and she takes him into the storage room to give him the bad news. Shockingly, he’s not entirely a dick...and the romantic music comes up as they embrace. In the diary room, Kaitlin complains that she doesn’t want to be in the house without him, and that she doesn’t believe that she’s the biggest target on the block. Maybe she shouldn’t save herself? (Oh God, that has to be scripted!)

It’s finally time for the inevitable. Is there really anybody watching that doesn’t believe she’ll use the veto? Come on, even without the online spoilers it was a ridiculous idea. She does read the script a bit more believably than most of her costars, but she obviously does use the veto to save herself...after a long, long delay. Helen then gets up, and nominates Jeremy.

After the usual little diary room babbling, the episode is over. I have to admit it wasn’t as fluffy as expected, and the Camp Counselor material was kept at a minimum. What did you think? Were you “surprised” by Elissa’s MVP win? Or Kaitlin’s decision to save herself? Let us know what you think!

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!
