Big Brother Season 15, Episode 25 Recap

It’s been hyped and hyped all week long. Big Brother alum have even been prodded to live tweet the event like it’s the Super Bowl. It’s a “first”, y’all, so aren’t you excited?

Meh. Just because it’s never happened before doesn’t make it a groundbreaking event. Plus, those idiots up north did the exact same thing earlier this year.

What am I talking about? The super-duper special competition that will allow jury members (plus tonight’s evictee) compete to return to the game. Excuse me while I yawn. Sorry, but I’m a purist. Once you’re gone, you’re gone. There’s no do-overs. Why should a week of work in the house be wasted (or in the case of Judd, a few minutes of work). It seems to me that the only people that love this twist are those with emotional attachments to one of the individuals who could come back, or whose hatred of somebody remaining is borderline scary. In other words, the vast majority of this year’s fans.

Let’s get it over with. After Julie hyping the history-making event, we have to go through a lengthy recap before the reactions to Spencer replacing Elissa on the block. Spencer says he’s not really surprised, and “isn’t really sweating it”. Funny, as he looks like he is CONSTANTLY sweating. Aaryn doesn’t make much sense in her diary room comment. She wanted to put up Amanda, but ultimately has to “appease” her. Wait, what?

Aaryn heads upstairs as Elissa and Helen hug. Helen says that she’s now “starting to regret not taking Jessie seriously about getting Amanda out of the game sooner, but it’s clear by Aaryn’s speech that she’s being bullied by Amanda”. Sensing an opportunity, the two of them head upstairs. In tears, Helen demands that Elissa start working with Aaryn and GinaMarie. Oh boy. Elissa says that “100% we have to work together”. Hmmm, interesting since she spent a full day bitching about Aaryn just two days ago.

Andy then pops in, and it gets awkward. Helen says that he is the swing vote, and Andy snaps that she has him 100%. “If I don’t stay, it’s going to be because of your vote”. She is hoping that her emotional state will get into his heart. “America is rooting for us right now (ugh).” He just can’t let the bullies win! This pisses off Andy, as Helen has done as much bad things as anybody else. Out of the blue, Aaryn then complains that this conversation will end up hurting her.

Andy then wanders downstairs and tells Amanda all about the good/bad people speech. “Don’t say that I told you that”, he adds (as usual).

As a person who works in politics, Helen says she “reads people all the time”, so she has to work on more than just Andy. She pulls McCrae into the cockpit room, and goes into an anti-Amanda rant. “Stick up to her. Be the man that McCrae is.” It goes on and on, and all we get from him are a lot of “yeah”. Ugh, she again brings up “America”. Make it stop! McCrae’s not happy about it either.

Oh wait, there is Amanda! She walks in, and McCrae follows her back out. Of course, he reports to her everything that Helen said. Amanda grabs her drink and wanders back in, pissed off at Helen. She reports to Spencer and Andy what was just said. “Do you think I’m a bully?” Although Spencer did actually say yes to the answer on the feeds, we skip to McCrae talking about how Amanda pushes him around. Oh wait, Spencer does finally say what we heard.

It’s now dark out, and Elissa and Helen try to work on GinaMarie by the hot tub. It’s the same speech, but a little bit angrier, and GinaMarie says that she’d like to keep Helen.

Andy is now seen walking into the HOH to talk to Helen and Elissa. When confronted about his vote, Andy claims that he’s “wavering”. Aaryn walks in as Andy explains his reasoning. “Do I lose one now, or a couple if I keep you here.” Elissa talks about loyalty, and how Amanda and McCrae only have loyalty to each other. Helen says that he has no targets right now, but will if he votes out Helen. When they threaten to get him nominated, Andy says in the diary room that he begins to worry. Then Helen pulls out the “America” crap once again.

It’s interesting how this was edited together. It’s from a couple of different days, and lots of stuff is missing. Like the edit on Elissa, and how she confronted Andy in that last conversation. It didn’t actually make him have second thoughts. Her threats reinforced his resolve. Lots more can be said, and I’m sure we will on Saturday’s Big Brother Gossip Show.

It’s already to go to the living room, and Julie talks about how they’ve all been “left in the dark”. They’re then shown footage from the last Have-Not competition, and Julie asks Amanda abotu what went through her mind entering the black box. She says that she was scared that Elissa was leading her through it. GinaMarie is then asked about the hardest part of that challenge, and she babbles about looking for Nick’s hat at four in the morning. “It was crazy bananas.”

The next question is about Elissa’s veto cmopetition, and they get to watch some footage from it, including Elissa knocking Andy into the wood. Andy says that he was terrified by “the ambition in Elissa’s eyes”.

Live voting is now already set to begin. Spencer gets to go first with his speech, and he says hello to all of his friends, and how he likes everybody. “Helen, you’re an amazing competitor.”

Helen then gets up, and my typing fingers already have cramps. She also says hi to her family and friends. She begins to tear up while talking about her family. She says that she’d love the votes from the house guests, and no matter the vote count they’ve all given her special memories. “I love you all. This has been the best of times, and never the worst of times.”

Voting begins with McCrae, who votes to evict Helen, as does Amanda. Elissa, though, votes to evict Spencer. Andy is next, and in tears he votes to evict Helen, as does GinaMarie. It’s a 4-1 vote, kids!

Julie reads the news to the house, and calmly hugs everybody. Her and Elissa have some words during their embrace, and the tears come. She blows kisses, and is then out the door.

We don’t cling to the picture wall as long as normal, as we go to Julie and Helen. She’s asked why the alliance with McCrae and Andy didn’t work, and she thinks it goes back to Andy’s nominations last week. “I knew in his heart he loves me, and he needed to make a big move.” Wow, it’s impossible to keep up. Keep trying to steal Julie’s job, Helen!

She also believes that Judd was more dangerous than Amanda, and that somebody else could eventually take her out. “What was so scary about Judd”, asks Julie with a chuckle. It was all the conspiracy theories, replies Helen. She then asks about the tears and whether they were real. Helen admits that she can turn them on at will, and even today she thought she could save herself when talking to GinaMarie.

It’s now goodbye message time, and Andy explains how he was troubled by the “good versus bad” comments. “You’ve been good to me, but you’ve been bad to other people you were supposed to be aligned with.” McCrae talks about the chess board, and how she kept wanting to go after his queen. Amanda then talks about how she knew weeks ago that she was coming after her. Elissa slowly talks about how she hopes that Helen is not watching it, as it means she’s been evicted. She promises to “fight for both of us”.

Julie concludes the segment by asking what she would have done different if given the chance. “I would not have taken Howard out of the game”, and would have evicted Amanda when she was the MVP nominee. She’s still pontificating!

Julie then informs her that she may get to go back in the house. “You and the rest of the members of the jury will be competing live tonight to get back into the game.” Oh God, she starts dancing around in her seat at this news. Helen still won’t shut up, as she wants to know if she can get some food first.

After commercials, we get some jury house footage. They indeed get to co-mingle while inside there, which I don’t agree should be done. Candice walks in first, and then Judd comes in and informs her that he had a “good old fashioned backdooring”. They’re sitting around playing cards when Jessie walks in the house. She sits down and tells them how Helen had done her wrong...and also how she did Judd wrong the previous week. She even tells them how she went out “guns blazing”. Judd is hoping there’s “some way I can get back in that house”.

They are now shown walking into the kitchen, where there’s a message giving them the news that they get to compete to return. All three want to get either Helen or Amanda out of the house! “Amanda really is the devil”, says Judd. Candice also wants to get out GinaMarie.

We go back to Julie, and the four are on the stage. Helen is jumping up and down as she always is, of course. She tells them that they’re going head to head in a live competition, and will go in as if they’ve never been evicted.
Julie again lies that the house has no clue, and the TV comes on in the house to bring everybody into the living room. She reminds them about what she said two weeks about not “being out of the game”. She tells them that the four members of the jury are going to compete to come back in.

The doorbell then rings, and the four come in! There’s lots of screaming, and Candice even hugs Aaryn! Wow, Candice also hugs GinaMarie, and tells her happy birthday. Helen is seen sprinting into a back room as the hugs continue. Amanda looks a bit concerned, though.

Julie has everybody head to the backyard, and we go to the backyard for a combined HOH/juror competition. FIrst, we have to endure commercials, but when we come back they’re standing on small ledges that look like they’re in a baseball dugout. Balls are going to be thrown at each of them, and the first to catch ten without falling wins HOH. So, if a evictee is the first to catch ten, they’re not only returning but they’ll be the HOH. No clue what happens if one of the others is the first with ten.

We hear a crack of a baseball bat, and then they all come down. Jessie actually catches one! Before the second balls comes, though, the “sprinklers” come on. Too bad we don’t get to see another ball hit as it’s taking forever between “hits”!

There’s one more mini-segment before the show is over, but it doesn’t look like anybody else has a ball. Wow, what if Jessie does return? Balls are then hit, and a number of players (including Jessie) catch them. One more set of balls comes a bit harder as we head into the credits, but it is still surprising how long they’re taking between rounds.

Well, that’s it! What did you think? Who is going to win this comp? Let us know what you think!

Tonight's the Night!

Ok, who is going home? Will it be Ms Prancersize? Or the butterscotch lover? Will "America" care either way?

More importantly, who is coming back? Tonight's evicted person? The angry clown? J-U-DoubleD? Or will it be butterscotch booty? Let's get a consensus here!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 24 Recap

I almost forgot there was a show tonight. The feeds have been full of silliness today, and I just spent three hours watching the entire house have a meltdown. Too bad only a couple of minutes of this footage will actually make tomorrow night’s show.

I looked at the clock just in time, so here we go. There will be lots of pontificating tonight. Maybe even a cheerleader dance, and a slightly unexpected veto win in a competition hosted by a “lovesick beaver”. Sound like fun? Well, let’s go then!

Before we get to that, though, we have to sit through some pontificating from Elissa and Helen, the current nominees. Aaryn says that her speech was “very strategic”, designed to make it look like she was protecting herself and GinaMarie instead of the unknown 3 A.M. alliance. Helen says that you should never feel safe, but she actually does because of her (phony) final three deal with Andy and McCrae. Eliissa, meanwhile, feels “really sad” to be up on the block with her “closest ally”.

Elissa is then seen moaning “I’m sorry” to Helen, and then stating the most obvious thing a nominee can say. “We have to win the veto. I mean seriously” No shit, Sherlock! Somehow Helen thinks that nominating the two of them is a hope they’d turn against each other. No, not really, but she is right in saying that she needs to temper Elissa’s behavior the next few days. “No more fighting with Aaryn. We’ve got to be calm.” The idea, although they don’t really have the power to complete it without Aaryn, is to win veto and put up Spencer. “Just one of us has to win the veto.”

Andy walks into the room, and Helen grabs him for a chat in the cockpit. He says he “feels very out of the loop”, and Helen then says that she was a bit angry with Elissa for what happened (and was not really shown on Sunday) the day before. She also lies and says that Elissa said it was her fault for Helen being nominated. Andy fake cries, and says that he can’t handle losing either of them. She reiterates that they have to make Spencer the target.

Meanwhile, Amanda is grinding all over McCrae before they’re interrupted by Elissa. She plops herself down on the other bed, and Amanda tells her they were just making out. Elissa asks McCrae for his thoughts, and he says they need to win the veto. Elissa then complains that she thinks that Helen is blaming her for being nominated. Wait, what? Amanda sees an opening, and says that Helen is now going to start campaigning for herself. “Just play hard”, she says. Elissa almost accurately reads the script that says that part of her thinks Amanda is “just manipulating me”, but another part sort of believes her. (Too bad a lot of good stuff wasn’t shown here.)

Now Spencer comes into the cockpit room, and Andy tells him what Helen just said. Andy says he needs to fight for the veto, but Andy can’t. Spencer hopes that there will be a situation where Andy can throw it to him.

Oh boy, it’s already time to pick the players! Arryn pulls her chip first, and it is GinaMarie. Helen then pulls Spencer, her worst nightmare. Elissa’s chip is house guest choice, and she picks Andy, who didn’t want to play. “Dammit!”

Helen and Andy talk again, and she asks if the plan is to send her home. Andy feigns ignorance, saying that nobody is telling him. He says that she has him and McCrae, for sure. She also thinks that he would use the veto on her if he was to win it. “I’m so blatantly lying to her face.”

Beating a dead horse, Amanda and Arryn are talking about how Helen can’t win. Andy joins them, and Amanda tells him that he can’t throw it until it’s definite that she won’t win. This doesn’t please Amanda. “I feel like right now in the game, I’m damned if I do and damned if I don’t”, he says in the diary room.

After commercials, it is indeed VETO time. They look up and see a giant beaver. Yes, it’s OTEV time, although Helen mispronounces it. So each round has a “love letter” written to an evictee, and then they all have to find the letter in the mud. The last one to return is eliminated.

We sit through a few “have to win it” diary rooms before the first round. It’s about a rant about wine, and the game is on. Jeremy is obviously the correct answer here, and Helen is the first up with it. Elissa claims that while looking for his letter, she scanned where the others are. Elissa is the second up, followed by Arryn, Andy, and Spencer. Yes, GinaMarie is out...and not happy. “All I wanted was to hear a Nick riddle.”

Round two is about Judd’s bear shirt, and this time Spencer is the first to return. Almost all of them are returning at the same time, but Elissa jumps in just ahead of Helen. I mean, she sprinted as Helen was halfway up as Elissa was still in the water. Helen is out, and Amanda giggles.

The next round is about a clown, so it’s Candice. Again, Spencer is easily the first back up, followed by Aaryn. Helen is getting mad as Andy isn’t moving real fast, but they both race back at the same time. Elissa knocks Andy to the side, and he bumps his head on the log. “Elissa Enzo’d me!” Yep, Andy is out this time.

The fourth “love letter” is about a body “chiseled from stone”. Elissa says it has to be Howard, so she’s the first back up this time, followed by Spencer. Arryn is now out!

We’re now down to Spencer versus Elissa. Normally, this would be no contest, but Spencer has been kicking ass so far. Can he continue? The question is about giving away money, so Elissa says it has to be Jessie. Spencer is concerned as he’s never seen her name in the mud, and he grabs his around the same time as Elissa. Unfortunately for him, she makes it up in plenty of time to win the veto! “I guess I’m good in the mud!” Helen is as excited as Elissa (ok, more), and Amanda can’t figure out why as she’s the actual target.

It’s commercial time, and afterwards Elissa and Helen have a “crazy dance”. Well, Helen does. Elissa doesn’t really do much but high five. It’s also time for Helen to give one of her patented motivational speeches. “Your head is in this game.” Now they have to get Arryn to put up Spencer.

Andy joins them, and Helen thanks him for “trying to win it for us”. Actually, she admits in the diary room that she was disappointed in him. “I saw how he was playing in that comp. He wasn’t hustling at all!” Uh oh, maybe Andy isn’t fighting for her at all!

We’re now in the kitchen, and Elissa asks Amanda what’s going to happen. Amanda says it looks like Spencer is going up but Helen is going home. Amanda says in the diary room that she’s telling her this so that Elissa will become closer to her. She adds that there is nothing that they can do to stop this, and that the more she does to try to save her will hurt her in the long run. Elissa is not happy with this, but “I definitely don’t want Amanda gunning for me, as the whole house will be against me again”.

Helen is then seen talking to Elissa in the bathroom. After Elissa complains about how dirty it is, Helen tells her that she’s going to go talk to Arryn about what’s going to happen. Elissa warns her about something that is impossible. “We have to make sure they’re not going to back door you.” Look, you can’t back door an original nominee! Helen asks if she thinks Amanda is trying to get rid of her, and Elissa gives a weird little answer. Yep, Helen now knows it’s true, but Elissa doesn’t want to be involved. “Please don’t bring me into anything with Amanda.” Helen knows that Elissa’s weirdness is sending her a signal, and that Amanda has clearly threatened her.

She then barges into the HOH room, and immediately goes on the offensive about how her “life is on the line”. Ugh, one of those cliches I hate. We hear this spiel about how her, Elissa, Aarryn, and GinaMarie have finally came together “to get rid of everybody in the house”. It’s because of Amanda and McCrae that her and Elissa were on the block, and this starts to pull on Aaryn’s heartstrings. Oh wait, I’m not supposed to believe that Aaryn has a heart! Aaryn, though, lets slip that she thinks Andy is on their side, too. Cue the music! Aaryn continues on about how everything she has said has gone to Amanda. “The game changing move for this game may be getting Amanda out of this house”, proclaims Helen as we go to commercials.

Ugh, we’re now back to talking about the time that Jeremy stole the bottle of wine. Why are they showing this idiocy? Oh, I see why, as the retell starts a big fight between Aaryn and Amanda. I still don’t give a shit. McCrae’s not happy about this, especially as this is shortly before Aaryn has to put up a replacement nominee. “Who does she thinks she is?” says Aaryn as she wanders up to the HOH.

Andy follows her up, and reminds her that they have a “solid position” in the house. He says they’ve “never once given one doubt” about them. Amanda comes into the room, and they again rehash “winegate”. This time, Amanda storms out, and Aaryn starts crying about how she’s always done what Amanda wanted with no respect back from her. Andy continues to tell her that this is the correct road to go down. Well, we got the footage needed to make it look like we don’t know who will be the new nominee.

Guess what? It’s time for the veto ceremony! Let’s skip the bullshit voice overs. We know that Elissa is going to use it, and Spencer is indeed put up in her place “because this is the corner that I’m being pushed into”. Elissa gives us a bit of a changeup, though, as she says that she wishes she could use it to save Helen instead.

Spencer is worried, Helen is disappointed, and Aaryn has no guts. “Amanda is scary. People are scared to piss Amanda off because she has a way of getting the house on her side and doing whatever she wants to do.” Amanda is obviously happy with Aaryn, and that’s it for tonight!

What did you think of the episode? Did you enjoy the OTEV? Should Helen go home tomorrow? Tell us in the comments!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 21 Recap

I’m not going to lie. I almost skipped tonight’s episode, as it covers a time period where NOTHING happened. I mean absolutely nothing. Sure, there was a veto competition, but the results are truly anti-climatic. Expect lots of filler. Lots and lots of filler.

As we always do on Wednesday night, we begin with reactions to Andy’s nominations of Jessie and Spencer. Andy explains in the diary room that his target is Jessie, as she has gone after people he is aligned with, and Spencer is somebody that nobody will vote out. Jessie whines about how many times she’s been nominated, and hopes to win the veto so “Andy can put up Amanda or somebody to make a big game move this week”. Spencer’s also not happy, but “I’m kind of used to this position. My game plan this week is to be cool, be friendly, be funny.” Amanda is happy, as “Jessie is my main target this week...I don’t trust her.” Helen is heard telling Andy his speech was great, but she’s disappointed in his nominations. “I was really hoping he’d put up McCranda.”

I need to go off-script here for a second. While we all wish the feeds would have been more exciting this week, Helen is completely wrong here. Andy making a big move would have not helped HIS game at all. It would have just helped her.

Andy is in a great spot. His pop-in method of playing is working wonders, as he’s a trusted member of both of the main alliances. Doing what Helen (or Amanda, for that matter) would have caused him to draw a line in the sand. Putting up two forgettable people sets him up perfectly for a run to the end. Whichever side loses a person next week will be the deciding factor as to who he runs with, and his HOH ends with only one person mad at him - the evicted person.

Everybody is now in the kitchen, and Andy asks to talk to Spencer. Once up in the cockpit, he tells Spencer not to worry. Spencer says he just wants to get through the week, but “I trust you”. In the diary room, though, Spencer says “I don’t trust anybody at all. Period. I just have to sit up on the block, be cool, and hope Andy is telling me the truth.”

Now in the HOH, Andy is telling Jessie that he wants to come out of this HOH with “no blood on my hands”. He tells her that she’s not his target. “Hopefully, it will benefit you.” What a crock of shit! Jessie says she wants to work with Jessie.

In the Have-Not room, Amanda is telling Aaryn that Jessie has to go because “she would vote me or McCrae out”. Aaryn says ok, and then Andy walks in...followed by McCrae. Amanda wants the four of them to solidify a final four alliance. She doesn’t want anybody to know what they’re doing, though. Aaryn agrees that these guys can get her farther than anything Helen can do.

Of course, they have to come up with a name...and we already aired this audio on last week’s Big Brother Gossip Show. Amanda doesn’t care, she says the finals “is between me and my pizza boy”. After a number of misfires, they decide to call it 3 A.M.

Helen is now up in the HOH with Andy. He asks if it was a good decision, and Helen says it was a “safe” decision. “You know me. I’m guns blazing.” Wait, what? Since when? Oh yeah, when it’s somebody else’s HOH. “You’re not going to ruffle any feathers with this move.” In the diary room, Helen says she’s not so trustworthy with now. “Something doesn’t smell like with Andy’s nominations.” She is worried that she’ll be blindsided. Andy is also a bit worried that she’ll find out he’s “more Team McCranda than Team Helen”.

Helen moves on to Elissa, asking her what she thinks of Andy’s nominations. Why would you ask silly Elissa anything? “I think it’s good”, she says. Helen doesn’t agree, as “it’s not a very big game move”. Elissa suggests they talk to Andy about backdooring Amanda or McCrae. “He’s not up for it”, she replies, wondering if he’s loyal to them.

Andy now asks Amanda and McCrae about his moves, and complains how Helen was badgering him about making a big move. Amanda’s suggestion is for him and McCrae to make a fake alliance with Helen, “because she won’t put up her own alliance members, will she?” Andy’s suggestion is that McCrae make that approach. Andy thinks this could be the move that propels him to the win.

When we return from a break, McCrae is doing just that. He pulls Helen into the cockpit room, and asks Helen about her views on McCranda. He claims that if it was the three of them at the end, he’d have no problem dumping Amanda. Oh, this (heavily-edited) segment is right up Helen’s batshit crazy ideas. McCrae tells her that he thinks Andy plays the same kind of game as they do, and she says she’s open to that. She even thanks him for coming to her with this plan! “He’s finally woken up. He’s realized that if he is to win this game, he has to cut her loose.”

It’s now the time we find out who is playing the veto competition. Besides the nominees and Andy, the additional players are Helen, Elissa, and Amanda. Jessie is not happy with that selection. The host will be McCrae.

Before we get to the comp, though, Helen pulls Andy aside for a chat with her and McCrae. She throws out the final three idea, and Andy smiles. Andy pretends to be shocked that McCrae is in to this idea, and hopes “that my acting job is as good as I think it is”. McCrae also piles it on, saying how much better Amanda is at everything. He even adds that he wants either Andy or Helen to be the one to give Amanda the boot.

Then the music slows down, as Amanda walks in! She’s all fired up about the veto competition, and Helen goes on about how they need to make sure Jessie or Spencer doesn’t win. Andy then makes a silly comment about how the three of them (Helen, Amanda, McCrae) are the people he’s the most comfortable with in the house. They then talk about the counting competition, and if that is today’s game how they should go about winning it. The plan is to let Helen win. They bring Spencer in...but honestly, I’m bowing out on this conversation. If this week wasn’t so slow, we wouldn’t be going this deep into it. At least Spencer isn’t on board with the idea of throwing it.

Another set of promos burned, it’s now time for the veto comp...and guess what, it is the “counting” game. Set up like a horror movie set (of sorts), they get a few minutes to count various items.

Questions are then asked, and after making a guess they get to “hold” or “fold”. We have to listen to some dumb commentary before we get to see the first set of answers. The plan goes as they directed, as everybody but Helen folds. Helen wins the first ticket.

For the second round, everybody but Helen again folds. She’s now one away from winning. the plan seems to be working. For the third round, Spencer decides to not to throw the round...and he knocks out Helen! Good for you, buddy. Amanda’s not happy, though. “Oops.”

Wow, they’re really struggling to fill this hour, as we get this lengthy idiotic description of math from Elissa. Really, CBS? Amanda, Elissa, and Andy stay in this round, and Andy gets the ticket this time, with Amanda eliminated. Yes, she’s still pissed. “I don’t even know if I want Jessie gone.”

For the next round, Spencer is the only one to fold. Jessie, who picked a huge number, is out, and Elissa gets this ticket. Yes, she’s an idiot. There’s no reason to carry on here. Andy ends up winning the last question, and the veto. Oh yeah, and dummy Elissa folded on the last hand.

They stretch it even more by having people babble after the veto comp is over. This person wants this, and that person wants that. Seriously, there’s no need for it. Let’s just get to Amanda bitching about Spencer not following the plan. Andy now wants to figure out which of the two are the more dangerous. Spencer is harder to read than Ms. Obvious Jessie. “I just want to make sure we’re making the right moves.”

Spencer now comes into the room, and it’s awkward. He asks Amanda if he’s pissed, and she denies it before finally admitting that she was. He says that he was stressed out during that competition, and claims he would not have used it if he had won. Then Jessie shows up, telling them that alcohol has arrived. As they all wander out, Andy has Amanda hold back, and they talk about Spencer’s lame excuse. “We really need to keep an eye on him”, says Andy. “He will say and do anything.”

Jessie now in the HOH with Andy, and she talks about how four people are making all of the “decisions in the house”. If he was to make his move now, he’d be the top dog in the house. She would have his back if he did just that. “You would change the game.” He asks for time to think about it.

Helen now grabs McCrae to talk in the storage room. She wants to verify that their earlier conversation is not to be told to anybody, and that Amanda may need to be cut loose before the final four. McCrae says in the diary room that this is a huge red flag, and they may need to get rid of Helen earlier than originally planned. McCrae reports to Amanda this conversation, and she takes it more calmly than one would normally expect. No fireworks. None.

After one final commercial break, we have a “3 A.M.” meeting. Funny thing, though. They have to blur Amanda’s ass as her pants are riding a bit low. Amanda reports what Helen said to McCrae, and that they have to go after Helen. This is helpful to create some fake footage about Andy actually thinking about using the veto. He actually never gave it a single thought.

Finally, this long hour is over. Andy puts on the veto necklace, calls everybody in, and decides to NOT use it. Shocker! Ok, it was funny that Spencer basically called Andy a dummy. Again, it leads to fakery about who may go home tomorrow.

So that’s it. At least there weren’t any frivolous segments, like the wacky things GinaMarie says. Or Amanda and McCrae’s engagement or wedding. Or Helen’s life stories. Anyway, any thoughts on tonight’s episode? Did anything stand out as interesting? Or were you as bored as I was? Tell us!
