Big Brother Season 15, Episode 17 Recap

If you’re a stickler for correct sentence construction, or even a semi-accurate use of the English language, this is going to be a tough episode to endure. You see, a certain (former) pageant executive is going to live her dream of running the Big Brother house. She’s going to get her stuff, including a few pictures, and may even be able to take care of that mess down there, if you know what I mean.

So let’s kick it off with the start of the endurance competition. Immediately, Helen is struggling, and we hear Spencer say that he just has to win this. Then Elissa almost falls. She’s on her knees, but is able to save herself. Funny enough, it is Andy who makes fun of her difficulties.

Candice talks about being a big target, and being alone in the house, and starts crying over how lonely she is. “I’m a fighter”, she says. We then get a flashback to Howard’s eviction, and Amanda saying the “house did the right thing”. Aaryn adds that she hopes this is the beginning of a relationship with Helen since she did what Helen wanted. Andy goes on about Howard’s ‘weird metaphors” that indicated how shady he was. “As a result, he had to go.” As he leaves, he tells Candice he loves her and “go get your bed”.

They all stare at Howard’s photo as it goes dark, with Elissa adding a long, long “it’s saaaaaaad”. Spencer explains that he still wanted to vote against Amanda, but all it would hae done is piss her off. They hug anyway, although he says “I wish it was a goodbye hug”.

Amanda then heads into the bathroom and apologizes to Candice. Helen does the same, and babbles about how every week she decides who needs to go to help her game. Yes, another great edit for Helen.

We’re back to the endurance comp, and Helen is still struggling...and over-explaining how you have to do it. Aaryn mentions that McCrae makes it look easy, and he replies that “I have carny blood in me”. He then adds that he never works out, but “for some reason this competition is really easy for me”.

The barrels then pick up speed, and it is clear that Helen is about to drop. Spencer is also starting to sweat and breath really heavy. The contraption then reverses, and it’s now Andy’s turn to over-explain as many are struggling. Spencer is the first out and he punches the “china”. Candice is next, saying all she cared about is going out after Spencer. “My intuition told me to play a low-key game this week.” Say what?

Helen and Amanda both almost fall, and then Helen does drop, as Amanda says, “like broken cowboys after a long night of drinking”. Elissa is next, and then Amanda. McCrae is pissed that “all of my alliance members really suck at this”. A bit later, Judd is the next to fall, and he’s mad because “this was my competition”. Andy is next, leaving Jessie, GinaMarie, and McCrae left in the game.

It’s now time to open the “prizes” for being the first to drop. Spencer “wins” a bullhorn that he must use for the next 24 hours. Candice’s box has five thousand bucks. “Thank you, Jesus. Something good happened to me in the Big Brother house!” Helen, meanwhile, won a barbecue with four guests.

Back to the final three. Jessie starts to struggle, and falls. GinaMarie immediately starts offering the HOH room to him and Amanda. She’s non-stop chatter, and Aaryn wants her to win as she’s the only sure allie she has. GinaMarie just wants her crown and stuff, and complains that McCrae is a tough sell.

We head to commercials, and when we return Helen is shouting encouragement to the final two. Elissa hopes that GinaMarie doesn’t win because Arryn “will be in her head”. GinaMarie is still offering her deals, but McCrae says you can only trust yourself. They keep jabbering, and GinaMarie even offers to let him put up somebody. She’s getting upset that he won’t take her deals. “This Italian stallion ain’t going anywhere.”

Suddenly McCrae loses his balance and falls. GinaMarie isn’t sure what this means. “Did I win? DId I win? Can I get down?” Everybody hugs her, as she says it’s “like a dream come true”. Yeah, let her have her moment in the sun.

People are nervous, though, as GinaMarie is a “wild card’, as Amanda says. Candice hopes that she remembers how she felt when Nick left, because it’s just like her and Howard. Helen is also worried, as “no one knows where her head is”. She does what Helen does best, and completely kisses her ass about how great she is. Seriously, I hate Helen’s diary room comments even more than I did back in the Dan days.

GinaMarie runs off into the bedroom, stopping to kiss Nick’s pic, to dance around with Aaryn. Andy even comments how dumb they look as they jump around. McCrae looks a bit worried, but Amanda says there’s no way GinaMarie would nominate either of them. “She knows we’re not going after her.” McCrae, though, is concerned that somebody will get in her ear as “this would totally be the time to make a move on us”.

Amanda is then unpacking her clothes as Spencer is wandering around with his bullhorn. He motions that the two of them are cool. “I know what you did, and it’s cool”, she says. Spencer even says in the diary room that things with them are now ok. “I’ll keep him around as long as I need him”, adds Amanda.

Now GinaMarie is telling Aaryn how great she is, and totally so proud of herself for her victory. They want Candice out of the house. “Everyone in this house hates her.” GinaMarie wants her out for three reasons, and one of them is her voice. I can’t argue with that logic. Plus, she helped vote out Nick “so she can kiss my ass”.

One more set of commercials, and it’s time for what is normally my least favorite segment of the week - the HOH room reveal. But for shits and giggles, I’m watching tonight. “Let’s get it onnnnnnnnnnnn!’ They all head upstairs, and she screams. She has her crown, photos...and a pic of her and Nick! Holy hell, that’s funny. Plus, she got her hair dye, and as Andy says “all the things in her room insinuate she’s fifteen”, including the godawful Christina Aguilera CD.

Silliness over it’s now Spencer, Judd, Helen, and Jessie in the cockpit room. Helen is babbling about her grill. She has chosen Aaryn and Elissa, but that third spot is still up for grabs. Jessie asks why Aaryn, and gets whiney about it. Aaryn then walks in for a second, and doesn’t stay long.

Aaryn moves on to the bedroom, and reports how Jessie was whining about her being invited to the BBQ. “It was so awkward.” Jessie then walks into the room, and gives the evil eye before sitting on the bed.

We’re now back in the cockpit room, and Jessie is still whining about the BBQ. This time, it’s to McCrae and Amanda, who says not “to take it personally”. Amanda attempts to explain why it was done, but Jessie won’t let it drop. “What about my whole loyalty thing? Does that have any weight in the BBQ thing?” Jessie thinks it’s a big deal to be able to drink, and that “it’s completley an ass-kissing move”. Amanda adds in the diary room that maybe she isn’t the one to complain about loyalty. “Just sit there, shut up, and look semi-pretty”.

It’s now a bit later, and Jessie is still whining. “I’m done playing games. I’m just over the fakeness.” Amanda brings up how she tried to get people to flip the votes against her the previous night, and we get the footage of her talking to Howard and others about that very issue before Andy shuts it down. We also see Andy reporting the plan to McCrae and Amanda.

Jessie says that all she did was ask Andy if it would work. Amanda says she should go to everybody else’s face and tell them that they’re fake. “Don’t sit there like a little girl and cry abotu not being invited to a BBQ when you’re talking about flipping the house against the girl with the BBQ.” Amanda walks away, and then informs Helen, who thinks maybe she should give her that final spot. We go to commercials with a final shot of Jessie crying in the diary room.

When we come back, McCrae is now talking to Jessie about “loyalty and trust”. Jessie responds that she is tired of them “controlling the vote for the last three weeks”. McCrae says that you “have to pick your battles”, but Jessie doesn’t like to take orders.

Uh oh, here comes Amanda in her panties as McCrae continue sot lecture Jessie. Andy is then thrown out of the bus a bit, and Jessie and Amanda go back to yelling at each other about the audacity of her going to him with a plan like that. “You are acting like a not-staying person”, says Amanda. Jessie makes fun of her sitting there in her underwear, and finally says “fuck you” to her. She calls Amanda a bully, who responds that her entire game is playing a “victim”. Amanda finally says that Jessie is acting like somebody who is going home this week, and Jessie’s last words is that she’s not scared of her. Seriously, the edit of this is going way longer than it needs to be.

We’re now back in the house, and McCrae is lecturing Amanda, telling her it makes her “look bad”. He wants her to apologize, saying in the diary room she doesn’t need to take everything so personally. Candice, after all, is the target. He tells her not to act so dumb, which pisses Amanda off. “You never have my back.” Spencer interrupts them, ending the segment.

Now it is time for GinaMarie to interview the house, and her first subject is Jessie. She talks about the fight last night, and weirdly pleads that she shouldn’t be up next to Candice. Ginamarie does say that Candice is her target, but doesn’t know who to put up next to her.

It’s now the moment of truth, as GinaMarie gets to help pick the people she’s “gonna send packing”. She brings everybody in, and manages to get through the speech. The first key belongs to Aaryn, and is followed by Helen, McCrae, Judd, Amanda, Elissa, Spencer, and Andy. GinaMarie then says she put up Candice because she questions her “loyalty”, and for being a “drama queen”, “tattle tale”, and “a little bit of a rat”. Everybody starts cracking up, as she stumbles over the whole “do the best in POV” part of the speech. Holy shit, that’s funny.

She then tells Jessie that she nominated her because she’s a “flip flopper”, which is “worse in my book”. Everybody continues to giggle as she tries to explain how she runs from one side of the house to the other. She goes on and on and on before it’s finally over.

Candice says she’s “genuinely shocked by the things that came out of her tongue-ringed mouth”. She’s going to work her ass off to save herself. Spencer feels pretty good for herself, while Jessie continues to pat herself on the back for standing up to Amanda. She thinks people are going to respect her more, but Amanda says that putting her up is like putting a child into time out. I’m not so sure about that, Amanda.

So that’s it. DId you enjoy tonight’s episode? What about that fight between Amanda and Jessie? Who came out looking worse? Tell us what you think!

Big Brother Gossip Show #307: Monkey Business

It's been nothing but craziness for the past week, so we had lots to cover. In fact, it's by far our longest show to date. Not only do we talk about the results of the various competitions (HOH, POV, etc.), but we also discuss whether Howard did come on to Amanda, or whether Amanda said something questionable earlier today.

You can find this episode at the usual online spots, including iTunes, the Google store, or..

 

Special thanks to my cohosts, Mike and Colette, for their excellent contributions, and for Ash's great help with the audio clips!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 16 Recap

It’s an important night in the Big Brother house. The actual eviction may be nothing special, as it’s pretty clear it is going to be Howard, but the show is rumored to conclude with an endurance competition. This week’s winner should set the tone for what happens throughout the start of the second half of the season.

Before we begin, though, it should be noted that we had some weirdness on the feeds today. In previous weeks the feeds have been live through most of the day. In fact, quite often they’ve gone up to fifteen minutes before showtime before taking them down.

Not today, though. They woke everybody earlier than normal, and then Big Brother made an announcement while they were preparing for the day. Shortly after, the feeds went to trivia, and we haven’t seen them the rest of the day. What gives? Nobody knows, but there’s been lots of rumors floating around.

So let’s get going with the reaction to Spencer taking himself off the block, with Aaryn replacing him with Candice. Spencer is still bummed that Howard is up. “I’ve got to save him and make sure that Amanda runs out that door on Thursday.” Do you think Candice is happy about this? Of course not. She’s pissed the “redneck girl” put her up. Amanda, though, doesn’t feel so bad being up because Howard is still on the block. Howard, meanwhile, is hoping somebody “has the guts” to save both him and Candice.

Howard is now shown on the elliptical telling Candice neither of them are going home. Candice replies, “grab your rebel flag. Black people on the block.” She continues on saying that Aaryn is scary, but he’s adamant neither are going home.

We jump to Spencer talking about getting five votes to get Amanda out. He talks to GinaMarie for a bit, and they both want to “keep that dude”. GinaMarie seems open to voting out Amanda. He then moves on, along with Howard, to Judd and Andy. Their message is that people don’t have to obey the plans of “certain people”. Andy says it all “makes total sense”. Spencer also talks to Candice, saying he wants to be on her side to take out Amanda.

Andy runs to Amanda to tell her about Spencer’s plan. “Of course it’s not going to happen, but they think they have me and Judd.” Amanda is paranoid, and is worried that Andy was MVP. They hug, and she walks out of the storage room.

We’re now outside, and Spencer sits down next to Amanda. They make some small talk, before Amanda says “I know what you’re doing, but it’s not going to work”. Spencer denies that he’s working against her, but Amanda presses him. Spencer claims that his wish is to get rid of Candice, but he’s “not about to kiss her ass”. Amanda says she’s confident that she has the votes to stay, and if he stops the plan that maybe he won’t be the “main target”.

He goes on to complain about how she pushes her weight around, but “I’m not some punk bitch that’s going to kiss your ass”. Finally, he tells her to shut up, and she calls him to quit bullying her. “Who tells a woman to shut up?”

Helen, who was working out, goes inside and reports on the whole story to Candice. “Anything I can do to hurt Spencer’s game, I’m going to do”, Helen explains in the diary room. “Maybe I’ll have a ‘keep it real with Candy’ moment”. She’s pissed that Spencer has promised her to keep her safe this week, so she wants to “put the bullseye smack dab on (his) forehead”.

She goes outside and announces a meeting, leading Amanda to say “house meeting always go really well”. Candice then lays into Spencer, who says that he only said “my personal preference is for Howard to stay”. She responds that she heard that Spencer had said he wanted Amanda to “choke on her saliva”, which he also denies. “Stop being a liar.” She ends it by saying that she hopes that “everybody uses their own mind” when they vote, and that Spencer needs to keep his name out of his mouth.

Jessie is now inside whining to Aaryn and GinaMarie on how Candice is treating her. For some reason, she is afraid of her “fierce social game”. Say what? “That’s scary to me.” Aaryn replies that maybe Candice should be the real target, and GinaMarie agrees. All they need is four votes, after all, and Aaryn is certainly willing. Too bad it won’t do anything but create a false hope for CBS-only viewers.

It’s now time for Julie to talk to the house. She congratulates them for making it to almost the halfway mark, and then informs them of Britney’s baby. Oh yeah, and the stupid Kardashian baby. Ugh, who cares. Baby news over, and Julie asks what Jessie misses from home. It’s her dog. God, this is a waste of time. Judd is asked the same question, and he misses his family, friends, and dog.

Speaking of Judd, it’s now time to meet his family. They’re exactly as you’d expect. Good for them, but I see way too many of those types of folks in my area.

It’s now time for the final pleas. Amanda goes up first, and she says hi to her family and then says “I’m not ready to go home next”. She is grateful for McCrae, and thanks GinaMarie for calming her down. She’s hoping for a Jewish wedding in the house.

Candice then says hi to “both my moms out there”, and babbles and babbles and babbles. “Vote with your heart. Howie, you’re my best friend in the house, and we’re both on the block because of it.”

Howard is last, and he thanks God before thanking his family and his church. He says he loves his castmates, and can’t wait to be friends outside of the house. He wants to people to vote with their heart, not because of what they’ve been told to do.

Voting then starts with Helen, who votes to evict Howard, as does Elissa. Spencer votes to evict his “besty boo” Candice. McCrae goes back to the house choice, and votes against Howard, as does Andy, Judd, GinaMarie, and Jessie. Howard is out, 7-1!

After commercials, Julie announces the news. He hugs everybody, saving Candice for last. She gives him a peck, and is out the door. Everybody gathers to watch his name go dark (why, I  don’t get as I have never understood this ritual). Julie asks why he was seen as a threat, and he goes on about the “power in the house”. Julie wants to know who the power belongs to, and he says Helen, Amanda, and McCrae. He adds that he tried to get in with them, but the Moving Company lie screwed his game. Julie pushes on the Movers and his lie to Helen. Who cares, really?

Julie then brings up the racism in the house. Howard says that outside of the house, “it’s easy to walk away from it”. When you’re in the house, you can’t walk away but he was thankful that Candice was there. He didn’t confront it because he was afraid of his temper, and he gets applause for that answer.

For final goodbyes, Spencer says he’s upset that he’s gone. Amanda bitches that getting him out has been “exhausting”. Helen kisses ass, as she always does. She sucks. Speaking of suck, we get Candice’s baby talk to end the segment. Goodbye, Howard, you were a good guy on the wrong season. Oh wait, we’re not done. Julie asks about Candice’s comments about being “friends”, and that leads Howard to go on and on.

It’s now HOH comp time...and it is indeed endurance. It’s called “Bull in the China Shop”. They’re on a barrel, holding a “bull” as long as possible. When they drop off, their china shatters. Last person standing is the new HOH.

Cue the ultra-cheesy music, and we’re off. Elissa almost falls right away,, but saves herself. She’s not doing well on this comp. Others are acting like this is the easiest game ever, and cheer when Julie announces there are no Have-Nots this week. Before we end the show, Julie announces that the first three to drop will get to open a box...and one of them contains five grand. Nobody falls for it...yet.

So after the announcement that next week is a double eviction evening, that’s it for this week. Jump on the feeds to find out who is the next HOH!

What did you think? Did the right person go? Should Candice or Amanda have gone? Who do you think will win HOH? Let us know!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 14 Recap

Tonight’s episode should be pretty basic and lackluster. Covering the 24 hours after Arryn’s dramatic HOH victory, there will be just a little bit of shuffling and gaming. Since Arryn quicly acquiesced to the promises she made earlier in the week, the real focus tonight will be filler segments and the Have-Not competition.

So we start off tonight with a look back at Kaitlin’s departure. Arryn is happy that she succeeded in staying. “I’m extremely proud to have figured out a way to get the majority of people on my side after pretty much being on the bottom of the barrel.” Helen hopes that Arryn holds up her side of the bargain, and accurately reads CBS’s cliche of the night. “I hope I didn’t just make a deal with the devil.” Elissa is not happy, and slowly drawls how the pressure of the house made her vote out Kaitlin. Howard echoes a similar thought, but more succinctly.

Andy then gets his token, and much desired, spot on the episode, babbling about how Kaitlin set a record in leaving after her eviction. “I’m sure that Jeremy is waiting with open arms on his boat.”

We then move to the HOH competition, and Elissa’s futile effort to beat Arryn. “I went from being on the bottom of the barrel to the tip top of the mountain”, she sort of exclaims. GinaMarie shows the real enthusiasm, but she’s virtually impossible to understand as she goes on about her “BB bunny”. There’s also a funny shot as Arryn hugs everybody, but her and Elissa both avoid the uncomfortable moment. Elissa is “speechless”, and the world is thankful.

Helen, though, is worried that Arryn won’t stand up to her promise to put up Howard and Spencer. We get a shot from earlier in the week of them shaking on this deal before moving on to Candice saying “I just want to throw up. Are you serious?”

Arryn and Jessie head into the bathroom to celebrate, and Jessie says she has to play like they’re best friends this week. Meanwhile, Candice is straddling Howard, complaining that her and Elissa will probably be put up. Howard says they’re just going to have to “kiss butt”. Candice also knows about the “game-changing deal”, and we get another shot back in time as Jessie informs her of the deal. She tells Howard, and he promises not to tell anybody.

Spencer is now shown talking to Arryn. He wants to make a deal, but she says she has to wait to hear from the house. She tells him that she doesn’t want him to go home, and says she respects him. She also says she’s under pressure to put up Howard, but doesn’t really want to do that. She has no alliance, so she has to make people happy. This pisses Spencer off, but he still looks at her ass in the final shot.

Helen now grabs Arryn and pulls her into the storage room. Helen congratulates her, and then tells her that Candice knows about their deal. We get another shot from the past as Candice asks Helen about that a few minutes before the eviction. Helen complains that Candice was “threatening” her, but she clearly wasn’t. They both know that it was Elissa who informed Candice, and Helen is furious. Maybe putting Elissa up isn’t a bad idea, and while not against it, Helen says her name has to be out of that conversation.

Elissa and Candice are now complaining about Arryn, who conveniently walks in. Elissa gives her pure glaring looks through the mirror as Arryn wanders around the kitchen. Arryn complains in the diary room how Elissa makes it harder on herself. She did, after all, promise to not put her up. she could at least try to be cordial. Yeah, right.

Fluff time, as the “who wants to see my HOH room” music comes on. Everybody is hiding from Arryn, though, which at least adds another little twist to a boring segment. They finally go in, and there are laughs and fake cheer. Zzzzzzzz! Oops, there is one moment of awkwardness as Arryn complains that Candice has her saying “aks” instead of “ask”. Oh boy.

Helen is now holding court in the cockpit room, telling Judd, McCrae, and Amanda about Candice knowing the Arryn deal. She’s pissed at Elissa! “I hate to say this, but we have to get her out.” Yeah, right.

Fluff time, as we now watch the burgeoning relationship between McCrae and Amanda. Seriously, while I like her I don’t need this garbage.

Spencer now heads up into the HOH for his official “kiss the ring” moment with Arryn. He wants to “defend” himself to her, and says that if he wins HOH he would not have put her up. Arryn doesn’t believe it, but Spencer says that the house needs to have a “power shift”. Again, Arryn says that to save herself last week she had to make deals she didn’t want to make. Spencer rebuts this idea of a HOH that is nothing more than to gain protection, and he doesn’t believe he’ll be safe after this week. “There are other people in the house that can give you more protection”, he says. “I’m not mad at you...yet.”

It’s Howard’s turn to state his case, and he complains about the “lies” that are coming out about himself and Candice. She then tells him about what Candice has been saying about her deal with Helen, but confirms that she has to do what they say. She claims that she doesn’t want to put After commercials, it is time for a CBS tie-in competition. Sirens scream, and everybody runs to the living room. Somebody named Poppy Montgomery, from an unknown CBS show that just happens to be premiering tonight, is on the screen. Andy claims he knows who she is (“she’s a ginger”), but it’s doubtful anybody else does. She introduces the Have-Not competition, and they head outside.

It’s a police station motif, and after a scripted quip from Judd, this Poppy person gives them their instructions. It’s a two-part competition, and I don’t really care. Sorry, folks, but I never recap what happens. It’s always the same. Diary room stuff is nothing but how they don’t want to be Have-Nots, and reading the rules over and over. The results are that this week’s Have-Nots are Amanda, Judd, Candice...and GINAMARIE!!! Finally, she has to move out of the bed she shared with Nick TWO WEEKS AGO!!!

When we return to the show, it’s more fluff. Elissa is doing stretches, and complaining that there is no gym. Jessie, who is also in the room, doesn’t respond. We get more shots of Elissa stretching and doing yoga throughout the house. “I’ll do it anywhere.” Ugh, why? Why?

Silliness over, Candice is again complaining to Howard. He thinks that they have a chance to save the game, and that if she has something to say she should say it. Wait, what? You’re the one who has been telling her to keep quiet! They want to force Arryn to put up Amanda and McCrae. “Go take your bed”, he says. “Now you can go get your bed.” Perfectly dramatic moment, Big Brother editors.

So Candice does just that, but I have to interject here. This conversation I’m about to recap actually took place way earlier. It happened before the Have-Not competition. It happened before her conversations with Spencer and Howard. Hours earlier, in fact. It was so early in the day that most feed watchers didn’t see it.

Candice then comes into the HOH, where Arryn is in the bathroom brushing her teeth. She sits down and complains about how “certain people are running the house”, and that this is a crucal week that should result in a big move. Arryn counters that she has “to make the most amount of people happy”. She adds that she doesn’t want to put up Howard, but a lot of people aren’t happy with him. Candice pleads with her to break up Amanda and McCrae, but Arryn won’t even consider that as she is the main person who has helped her. Candice claims that Amanda is actually working to put her up next week, but Arryn says she has a “Candice switch” and she doesn’t really pay any attention to what she says.

Candice heads back downstairs and tells Howard that she won’t put up Amanda and McCrae. She believes they’re both going on the block, and Howard says that’s not how it sounded last night. Candice is now upset that she may have taken the heat off him and onto her. “That’s fine, Howie. Whatever. Have a great life. Whatever happens, happens.” Yes, she feels used. He asks if she thinks he’s running a game on her, and she backs away from him. “Let’s just not talk about it.” She wants him to leave her alone, and he walks off.

Andy is now upstairs with Arryn and a number of others, pushing for Howard and Spencer to be put up. Arryn says she is considering putting up Elissa, but Andy says she can’t. “Howard and Spencer are such schemers”, he says. Andy walks out, and Arryn complains how stressful it is to be in this position. Jessie says she’ll be completely supportive of whatever she wants to do, including putting up Elissa. Arryn complains that she’s not a “direct target” of either of those men, but she always will be Elissa’s main target. Jessie counsels that she should do what is best for her game, not the house’s game. (It’s interesting how they’re making it sound like there was ever this kind of deep thought about going after Elissa.)

The hour is almost up, so it’s time for the moment of truth. Arryn still makes it sound like Elissa is a possibility, and brings in everybody for the ceremony. The first key she pulls belongs to GinaMarie, and is then followed by Jessie, Andy, Elissa (who gives a weird look), Candice, Helen, McCrae, Amanda, and Judd. Yes, Howard and Spencer are nominated!

Arryn says it’s “nothing personal”, and it’s what is “best for my game”. The show then ends with Howard and Spencer both saying that it’s not over yet for them. Elissa, meanwhile, is “shocked”! Helen is happy that Arryn stuck to her deal, but reminds us that MVP could screw up the whole plan.

So that’s it! What did you think tonight? Should she have put up Elissa? Or anybody else? And who is Poppy Montgomery? What are your thoughts?

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 13 Recap

Three mean girls - two racists and one loud-mouthed sex machine. One of them is going home, but which one? Live feeders know the answer, but there is certainly a case for any of them.

The real mean girl of the series, however, is safe. Just like last night, I have a feeling her true colors are going to be shown once again. Yesterday, she had two major incidents, and one of them is most definitely going to be used for the opening “let’s create some eviction doubt” video package.

Let’s go right to the show with the replacement of Elissa with GinaMarie. Oh wait, Julie has to explain that Arryn won that third nominee spot in a landslide, so that’s how Elissa, and then GInaMarie, went up (like we didn’t know that already). GinaMarie doesn’t know who the MVP is, but “i daught people liked me but obviously MVP BB doesn’t like me do that’s why I am up.” Did you follow that?

Kaitlin is bummed to be next to two good friends, but she has been told that she is just a pawn. “If I go scramble for votes, it’s just going to make me look super paranoid.” Arryn says she’s going to have to pull out a “magic trick” to get some votes as the biggest target in the house.

She is now upstairs making her case, complaining to Judd and Jessie about how GinaMarie is so negative. In the diary room, she says her work this week is going to be tougher, and she promises that she’ll never put up Judd or Jessie. Now Judd is reconsidering his promise to Kaitlin. They go over just how good Kaitlin has been in recent competitions.

Of course, Helen pops her head in. Arryn then leaves, and she says that her and Elissa (who is right behind her) needs to know how to vote. Judd makes the case that every week Arryn wil go up, and Kaitlin is a stronger competitor.

Elissa isn’t happy about this. “My opinion is Elissa all day, and every day...Arryn affects my game because she’s constantly talking about me.” Ugh, really? She also says that it affects Candice and Howard’s game, but Jessie says that’s exactly why they should keep her.

Speaking of Candice and Howard, they’re laying around in the cockpit, and Judd comes in to talk about who to evict. Judd repeats the “awesome competitor” line, but Candice says “her mouth is so potent”. Judd says that both her and Elissa need to put the personal thing to the side, and Howard says it’s 50/50 on what he wants to do.

Arryn is now talking to Helen about earning Elissa’s trust. She’ll basically do whatever she wants, and Helen says it “may be a deal too good to pass up”. Helne pulls Elissa into the storage room, but Elissa doesn’t believe her. “Arryn says stupid about me, but I can’t get that she has made derogatory racial comments.” Helen says that Elissa needs to look at who is more dangerous to their game. In the diary room, Elissa says she “just can’t support mean girls”. So she doesn’t support herself?

It’s now morning, and Judd calls over Helen to talk to him and Jessie. Andy joins them, and Helen says that nobody can tell Spencer or Howard the deal. “They’ll ultimately do what I want to do”, he says, and then tells Helen about their other alliance. It’s fake, though, he says. “They think it’s real.” Helen is shocked, shocked, shocked. How dare she try to start an alliance! Really?

After commercials, we go to Helen talking to Elissa and Amanda about that five-person alliance. Again, this shows how devious that little Kaitlin is. They have to keep this knowledge a secret, though.

We now see Arryn in the bathroom, and Elissa and Kaitlin are in the kitchen. Elissa doesn’t do what Helen requested. Instead, she comes right out and asks Kaitlin if she had made a deal with Spencer and Howard. Kaitlin denies it, and Elissa pokes and prods her some more. “I would rather you stay than Arryn.” We see Arryn craning her head around, listening.

For more detailed coverage of this incident, please read what Mike, Ash, and I all wrote yesterday about this. You really can’t pull two hours of bitching into a five minute segment, but let’s just say that Helen and others are pissed at Elissa. The only good thing that comes out of it is that once again Elissa is finally being exposed on CBS as the real bitch that she is. I mean, come on, I’m feeling bad for a racist! Howard does his diary room job by saying that maybe he’ll have to vote against Arryn after all!

It’s now time to talk to the house. Julie starts by telling Judd that twitter is “abuzz” about his stupid bear shirt. Judd says that he’s not wearing it tonight because it’s in the wash, and Julie says that maybe she’ll wear it next week. Yeah, right.

McCrae gets the next question after being told happy birthday. Julie wants to know if he’ll ever be able to top this year’s celebration. He babbles about how being in the house is a dream come true. Julie brings up the frozen yogurt competition, especially GinaMarie’s deep throating the machine. GinaMarie is asked about how bad that tasted, and I have no idea what she says. “I took one for the team, Julie. I took one for the team.”

It’s final plea time, and Arryn goes first. She says that she wants to stay in the house, and has learned a lot from everybody. Kaitlin thanks her family and friends, and that it’s been great to get to know everybody. GinaMarie is last, and again thanks everybody. “I have a big heart, and a bad accent.” She rambles on, and throws a kiss to Nick.

Voting time, and Amanda votes to evict Kaitlin, as does McCrae, Helen, Candice, Elissa (sadly, sadly, sadly), Spencer, Howard, Andy, and Jessie. Yes, it’s unanimous!

There’s another commercial break, and then Julie breaks the news that Kaitlin is evicted. Helen gets up to hug her, but Kaitlin brushes past everybody to get to the door. She does give GinaMarie a hug, and is gone!

Just like last week, the house is pretty calm post-eviction. They all just stare at the wall waiting for it to go black, and then it goes to Julie and Kaitlin. Julie asks why she sprinted out without hugs, and Kaitlin complains “everybody lied to my face”. She was a little bit shocked it was unanimous, but says she’s not necessarily mad at anybody. She says that she is hurt the most by Andy.

Julie wants to know why she went from pawn to evictee, and Kaitlin responds that obviously people saw her as a bigger threat...and the company she kept didn’t help either. Julie then informs her that the public is calling the three of them the “mean girls”. She says that she thought she was nice to everybody, but “I did align with some catty girls”. Julie adds that people feel Arryn was the leader, “especially the night she flipped over Candice’s mattress”, and she was a part of it. Kaitlin says Arryn’s actions rubbed off on her, and that she has some regrets.

The interview ends with a Jeremy question, and Kaitlin says she “has no clue” if they’re going to see each other. “I’m going to Vegas.” Is Jeremy invited? “He can do what he wants.”

We end with the messages from the house, and Helen apologizes (of course), but “Arryn gave us a deal we couldn’t resist.” Candice says she’s “super beautiful and sweet”, and says that it was because of Jeremy she is probably is gone. Judd says she’s “hot as hell”, and wishes he could have worked with her a little sooner. Arryn says she can’t wait to meet her after the season is over.

With Kaitlin gone, it’s now HOH comp time. It’s called “Roulette Me Win”, and they get to roll a ball onto a roulette wheel. The player with the highest score is the next HOH.

Andy is up first, and rolls a 23. McCrae then rolls a 28 to beat him. GinaMarie’s score is 3! Bwahahahaha! Candice then rolls a 27, and Spencer takes the lead with 34! Arryn is next, and she hits a 36 to take the lead! It’s the highest score possible! Howard then rolls, and hits 17. Jessie then gets a 2, Helen hits 28, Amanda gets 1, and Elissa is one slot short and gets a 0! Arryn is the new HOH! Wow! Funny how there is no celebration afterwards!

Julie then says the public is again voting for the third nominee, and promises a Jeff interview to end the show. Something that I won't sit through, of course!

So that’s it for tonight! What did you think of the episode? Are you shocked that Kaitlin is gone? Or that Arryn won HOH? Tell us what you think!
