I'm always one for a good conspiracy, but last night's "Helen Jumped" one takes the cake.
Before I go too far, if you have the live feeds - use the flashback feature to go to 8:06pm on Thursday night. You can watch Helen fall/jump off about 12 seconds later.
She isn't pushed, she isn't 'tapped' by someone to tell her it is her turn to get off, she simply lost her balance, realized she was falling and jumped to the ground.
What has people CONVINCED that there was something else at work it because you can see someone moving behind the wall the HGs were leaning against.
The platforms the HGs were standing on were all synchronized together - they moved in unison. Apparently there were one or more production people behind the wall controlling or monitoring the machinery.
Right before Helen went down the platforms pulled back very close to the wall - which cause the 'mud flaps' above the platforms to pull back. You could see someone moving from left to right through the opening by Helen's feet (update: A twitter follower pointed out she saw the flap behind Elissa being adjusted by someone earlier in the competition - this makes sense as the flaps would move as the platform did and production probably did not want the viewer distracted by the big hole behind the HGs feet so they would adjust them after big platform moves).
It was just at that moment that Helen went off and people are adamant that because they see someone behind the wall at the same time, there must be something amiss.
So WHY, if Helen was pushed, did she prance off the set wishing everyone well and not yell FOUL!?!?!
The crazy people (5 of whom I blocked from my twitter last night because I was so annoyed), came up with the theory that Helen was IN on it, that she was paid off to quit.
Why? So Judd could come back? Seriously? And how much would Helen need to be paid to give up on $500k? As much as she annoyed me in the house, I have NO doubt she was one of the most passionate about the game this season.
If you want a conspiracy, you would be much better served watching Elissa today and seeing how she acts. Helen was the one giving her instructions on what to do and say this last week, without Helen around I expect production, via Diary Room visits, to influence Elissa greatly because frankly I don't think Elissa has a game plan except to get out people she doesn't like.
Feel free to discuss.... not that I think anyone can give me ANY viable reason why Helen would have willingly quit the game.
