Tuesday Morning Update - Double Eviction Info.

Howdy folks,

As Ash posted on Sunday she's a bit busy with "real life" and the feeds, to be brutal, are not that spellbinding the last couple days so I thought I'd make a brief post to catch those of you without them up.

I will also give those of you that have requested it a short primer in the world of double evictions (at least how they have been done in recent seasons).

As I write at almost 6am Tuesday morning the house is asleep with the exception of Derrick and Cody.  Now I know I am biased as I see Derrick as in total control of the house.  Scott will (and has) pointed out that Derrick is not the most interesting character to watch on the feeds - but if you do watch you will notice the amount of time he spends stroking his little beard, a thing he does when he is thinking deeply according to his wife.  Derrick is the top dog in the house, although few (any?) seem to realize it.  That doesn't mean he is going to win by the way, but he has a great shot.  His game could be over (or put on hold) in 60 or so hours if he is the second evictee on Thursday night.

Derrick and Cody check out the graffiti from previous Big Brother players.

Derrick has managed to form alliances with everyone in the house to some degree.  His biggest 'foe' in the house a few weeks in was Donny and even he seems to be playing along at this point, in part due to "Team America" (ugh).  However of all the alliances Derrick has, his closest is Cody, not that he would have a problem dropping Cody in an instance if he felt that relationship became a liability.  I do think Derrick would have no issue sitting next to Cody in the end, frankly unless something changes drastically he should be able to beat anyone easily in a final two.

And that brings us to the reason the feeds have been pretty quiet the last couple of days.

When Christine won the POV on Saturday night, it became apparent that she wasn't going to use it.  Christine is close to Frankie and up until she won the POV the most likely target to go home if the POV was used was Frankie.  That obviously wasn't going to happen.  Derrick is all about adjusting to the flow of the game and generally only making minor changes if possible, as much as everyone talks about blindsides the only big blindside in the house this year has been to the person going home, everyone else knew it was coming.  Derrick came to the conclusion Sunday/Monday that between Jocasta and Zach he'd rather have Jocasta (whom he has been nurturing a relationship with over the last couple of weeks, notice who was crying on his shoulder on Sunday's show?).  Zach's loose mouth finally did him in even though it was via a game of telephone as Zach told Frankie weeks ago he had an alliance with Cody & Derrick then Frankie more recently told Christine and just the other day Christine told Cody who reported it to Derrick and declared "Los Tres Amigos" null and void.

Zach should be the first Jury member on Thursday

Almost an afterthought, for the first time this year the POV was not used yesterday.  Considering this season the most exciting part of the feeds have been the Monday and Tuesday after the POV has been used you can understand why yesterday and most likely today, will be a snooze fest.  Zach feels confident he is staying and no one is going to tell him different.  Derrick even got Frankie to sign on to the idea yesterday, not that that was very hard.  Jocasta has learned not to make waves and she will be fine (until she is evicted of course which will actually happen one of these times).

Frankie has been a bit player this week altought CBS will most likely edit it differently.And there you have it.  Today will consist of Nicole, remember her? She's actually the HoH this week, getting to do her HoH blog (oh golly gee!) and tweet and take her pictures and thats about it.  I expect no drama, no changes, perhaps Derrick mking sure all are on board with a unanimous vote.  There was also talk of a split vote but as of now that idea is off the table - Derrick doesn't like drama and a split vote might create drama after Zach's departure, better to have everyone all on the same page.

Oh - and Caleb? Quite frankly he's been a non factor this week as well. Other than the shaves head and the Adam and Eve get up for 48 hours, I can't really tell you what he has been up to because its not been much of anything. Look at him below, sleeping like a baby, images of Amber, or maybe Nicole's friend (Marissa?) dancing in his head.

At the end of the day it is what it is...........

And with that, on to the

Double Eviction Primer

 

Since it was announced that the finale for Big Brother 16 will be on September 24th - later than its ever been (don't hold me to that - BB2 was delayed due to 9/11 - and I am too lazy to look up when it ended), we may very well have TWO double evictions this season just to spice things up and I'm positive we will have at least one house guest re-enter the house later on (so don't give up if you are only watching for Zach).

Here is how the double eviction has gone down in recent seasons.

We start with the vote - they to it pretty fast. So Zach will be evicted and speak to Julie briefly while the HGs get ready for the first HoH competition.  At this point I also expect Julie to announce the double HoH is over and done with.  I can't see them trying to squeeze in a Battle of the Block on Thursday.

Expect LOADS of short commercial breaks on this episode.

The house guests will compete (Everyone but Nicole) and a new HoH will be crowned.  The new HoH will be told they have a few minutes to decide who to nominate and while we see another commercial everyone will try to get in the new HoH's ear, I expect Frankie and Derrick (assuming neither is HoH) to be first in line.

Nominations will be made and the HGs will play for the POV - not everyone will play since we still have more than 6 HGs left - the players will most likely be picked during a commercial break.  Once we have a POV winner there will be yet another commercial break and much scurrying (in the back bedroom or Hive room) as again people try to get in the POV winner's ear AND the HoH's ear if the POV might be played.

POV ceremony will be held and used or not used followed immediately by speeches, a vote and the second eviction.  In the past this has been the end of the show (after Julie talks to the 2nd evicted hg) and the second HoH competition has been held after the show ends.

For reference - last season Candice and then Judd were the House Guests evicted in the double eviction episode last season and they returned along with Helen and Jesse two weeks later to compete to get back into the house.  I would expect a 'big name' HG to get the boot second this coming Thursday as well.

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 20 Recap

Throughout the years, a good percentage of the post-double eviction show is basically a recap of what happened during that frantic hour. We’ll see more of the behind-the-scenes maneuvering that led to Candice and Judd’s evictions, along with lots of diary room commentary.

There will also be a late-night HOH competition, and some maneuvering that led to new nominations. It’s not going to be the most vital show of the season, but there should be plenty of intriguing commentary.

So we begin tonight with the Candice/GinaMarie fight. This time, we get it with GinaMarie’s mic on, as she keeps babbling her “thirty seconds is up” as Candice continues to berate her. In the diary room, GinaMarie claims that this shows that Candice is exactly like she had “called her out on”. Not really, you dumb twit.

The voting begins, and Candice is still shooting daggers at GinaMarie. Spencer says that the double eviction alone is crazy, but this situation is really “turning it into a madhouse”. “You can dish it, but you can’t take it”, Candice singsongs as Aaryn rolls her eyes. “You defamed me, so I can defame you.” Oh God, this is silly on both ends...and Andy agrees.

For a few seconds, I have to admit that Candice is actually looking worse than GinaMarie...until GinaMarie throws out a line about her mother wanting her. No, this isn’t as Candice was walking out the door. This is still during the vote. Even Aaryn is shocked. “I’m afraid that her actions are going to reflect on me and hurt my game.”

Finally, Spencer even tries to get the two to stop. Helen also has to put in her two cents, although I do agree with what she’s saying.

Candice is then evicted, and GinaMarie says “should I say to get to stepping now?” Amanda adds that she doesn’t mind this going on, as it doesn’t affect her. “Hold on. Let me get the door for you”, GinaMarie calls out. Elissa makes it all about her, as she can relate to how “hard” Candice has had it, and says she’s sad to see her go.

Kissing everybody as she gets to the door, GinaMarie is waiting. Yep, it’s a repeat of the “mother” line. “My mom likes me, unlike yours.” As they walk away, GinaMarie shouts out that “she wants to do low blows. I can do low blows, too.”

We now move on to Aaryn’s quick HOH win. GinaMarie is the first to congratulate her, and Aaryn admits that she didn’t really want to win. Jessie couldn’t be more bummed about this, as she knows she will be going up.

Everybody heads inside, and Judd is the first to get to her. Spencer wants to know what she’s going to do, and Aaryn says everybody wants Jessie out. Spencer asks if he’s going up, and Aaryn says while she wants to put up GinaMarie, “I can’t.” Andy suggests putting her up as a replacement.

Ultimately, Spencer and Jessie are put up, and Spencer is pissed how he’s told all the time that he’s safe. Jessie says it’s “very, very scary”, and the veto comp is her last chance of safety. Well, she obviously fails, as Aaryn again wins. At this point, Aaryn says she’s happy that she’ll be sending Jessie to jury.

Helen immediately gets in Aaryn’s ear, and asks if they can backdoor Judd. She doesn’t want anything to do with that as Judd comes up to hug her. Helen explains that Judd has been a target for quite some time, and we get a recap of the “evidence” that is ultimately all in Helen and Amanda’s minds.

Aaryn convenes with Jessie while a number of others are chatting in the bedroom. “When I’m done, I want to talk to everybody”, she says as her and Jessie storm by. “If I take you off the block, you cannot fuck me, Jessie”, says Aaryn. Jessie says she will never come after her. “Okay. Send them in.”

Helen comes in with the names of people that will ensure her safety. She wants to take out a “big fish”, and she goes on and on with her analysis. “You have the votes”, says Helen.

In the kitchen, Judd is asking if he needs to go beg for votes. Amanda and McCrae frown at him like he shouldn’t be so silly. Meanwhile, GinaMarie is brought into the room to inform her of the Judd decision. Judd then walks in, and asks if they’re keeping Jessie. “No”, says Helen.

Amanda and McCrae now bring Spencer into a room, and tell him to just go with the flow “if the veto gets used”. Amanda tells him to vote out the replacement nominee if it is him the veto is used on. Of course, Spencer agrees to everything.

Andy comes in, followed by Judd, who now knows what is going on. “Don’t listen to that, Andy. I heard at the door.” Ok, maybe he doesn’t know everything but he’s scrambling. McCrae says that Judd believes they’re all talking about saving Jessie, but it’s actually about evicting him. “It feels icky”, adds Andy. McCrae adds that he’s “fucking heartbroken”.

Then we get to see the move of replacing Jessie with Judd. He’s gobsmacked. Aaryn says that if she didn’t do that, she’d be going home. As Julie goes to commercial, Judd says that he wasn’t playing Aaryn. Helen tries to stop him, but Judd says he’d be willing to bargain with anybody. Aaryn starts crying, and Judd keeps begging.

Helen jumps in and tells Aaryn she’s amazing, and that she’s “going to win this game”. Don’t go too far. Andy also breaks down as Judd continues to plead. Amanda asks if he’s MVP, and he denies it. “Elissa has always been MVP.” Amanda also starts crying, reminding him that it’s just a game. “I really love you.” Judd then starts in on Jessie, saying the “snake always wins the game”.

Judd is then evicted, and Jessie says that she’s happy that she didn’t leave the game. Amanda still thinks he’s MVP. “Great BB players don’t miss their shot.” Elissa, though, is upset that Judd wouldn’t hug her. “It’s a slap in the face.” Funny how the rare Elissa quotes in the last few episodes have just been about her self. We hear her tell Judd that this had nothing to do with her, and Judd also says he doesn’t want to hug Helen. He hugs Aaryn, and whispers “it’s not true”. She says she feels horrible, and he wanted to be here “more than a lot of people”.

Judd is gone, and half the house is in tears. Amanda still thinks he was MVP. Helen says “at least he’s going to jury”. Yes, Helen we know that’s all you care about. Judd got his dream of being in the jury. Oh wait, that’s what you think is Spencer’s dream.

After commercials, Aaryn is still upset over what just happend. She says it shows “just how quickly things can change” in the Big Brother house. “You can never feel too comfortable.” Busybody Helen comes in with fake tears to help her feel better. “This is the biggest game move this season...you are Janelle, dude.” No, she’s not. “For once in this game, no one is after you.” Ugh, she sucks.

McCrae is also crying in the photo booth, and he’s joined by Andy. McCrae complains that Judd was his best friend in the house, and he’s surprised he feels this strongly. “I’m a big wussy, I guess.” Amanda then pulls Aaryn into the have-not room, and hugs her saying that her and McCrae will never doubt her again. “He was scary in this game.” She thinks that the three of them and Andy will make the final four. In the diary room, Aaryn says she thinks that feels the greatest trust in Helen, but she says she “needs” to agree to this deal. They walk out, with Aaryn asking for some wine.

Ok, enough with the tears. Amanda, McCrae, and Andy are still bawling, telling themselves this was for the best. ENOUGH!!!! This is a televised game show! Oh God, now Helen and others join the crowd before Andy walks off to cry by himself. The rest of the house joins them, and Helen carries on with her cheerleading. Spencer, though, is kind of turned off by what happened. “They were like wild hogs eating one another.”

We then jump to the HOH competition, and it’s set up like a 50’s malt shop. They have to land their “cherry” on top of a “sundae” by tilting the “banana”. It’s a knock-out type competition, and the first to get the cherry in is the winner of the round. The HOH winner also gets to pick the week’s Have-Nots.

The first match is Helen versus Jessie, but we have to wait until after a commercial break. Jessie wins, but neither were great at it. Andy versus GianMarie is the second match, and Andy wins (obviously). Amanda then beats Spencer, and McCrae defeats Elissa (who complains that “McCrae was totally distracting me”) to end the first round.

The second round starts with Jessie versus Andy, with Andy winning. Amanda then has to go against her man, and McCrae’s ball hits just before Amanda’s gets to the sundae. She starts bawling, because he should have thrown it for her. “Jeff did it for Jordan. Brendon did it for Rachel, but McCrae doesn’t do it for Amanda.” Oh, come on.

The final match is Andy versus McCrae, and Andy is thriving in the diary room. For once, he’s actually part of the competition instead of just pithy commentary about it. It’s over pretty quickly, as Andy is now the new HOH! He has to pick Have-Nots, but Helen, GinaMarie, Aaryn, and Elissa volunteer. “In the spirit of Aaryn the Good Witch, I must take one for the team.” Oh boy.

Afterwards, Amanda starts bitching at McCrae about him not throwing the competition. “I was barely trying”, he says. She’s bawling about how she wants pictures from home.

We’re running out of time before the end of the show, but we have to have more of head mom Helen. She’s now consoling Amanda, and says that they’re all still there because of Amanda. “You have played an amazing game. You’re winning without having to win.” Ugh, she’s so full of shit! Andy then comes in, and she carries on about how she’s the only person who hasn’t won anything. She finally storms off, and Jessie says she “needs to get over it. Stop throwing a pity party for yourself, and move on.” She doesn’t, though, and is still crying as McCrae is in the shower. They hug, and he talks about how they have controlled everything that has gone on in the house. He reminds her that they should still be safe with Andy as HOH.

Andy is now in the HOH with Helen, and he tells her that he’s putting up Jessie and Spencer. Helen doesn’t like this, and almost commands him to put up Amanda and McCrae. The edit doesn’t quite show it accurately, but she did her usual method of “blah blah blah I love you and support you” but “blah blah blah this is what you should do” mind tricks. The edit makes it look like Andy is paying attention to her logic, but he’s really not. There was never a moment when Andy was going to do HELEN’s big move.

It is now that time, and after the usual diary room commentary, Andy calls everybody into the house. The first key pulled belongs to GinaMarie, followed by Helen, McCrae, Aaryn (“Poopy”), Amanda, and Elissa. Spencer and Jessie are nominated! He says he “adores” both of them, but “on a strategic level”, this was what he needed to do.

Jessie says she’s not surprised as she’s “an easy target”, but vows to fight to stay in the house. Spencer says he needs to somehow get “inside” the house, but he thinks “something is going to look better for him soon”. Amanda is happy that she’s not in danger this week, and hopes that Jessie ends up in jury house with “J-U-Double Eviction”. Ugh Amanda. That’s a bad joke. I prefer the “semi-pretty”line. Helen, though, gives Andy a thumbs down, but is going to push for a McCrae or Amanda backdoor.

So that’s it! What did you think of tonight’s episode? DId the behind the scenes stuff change any of your opinions? What about Andy’s HOH win? Or Amanda’s temper tantrum? Tell us what you think!

Big Brother Gossip Show #308: Class Personified

Double evictions always bring out the class in Scott, Colette, and Mike, so tonight was a show meant for royalty. We talked about everything that happened in the double eviction episode, along with many things that happened before and after that show. Add in Andy's HOH, a new (short-lived) alliance, and a special musical appearance by "Judd", and you have a show worth the two hours of time it takes to listen.

Grab this show from the usual online spots, including iTunes and Stitcher, or...

Special thanks to Ash for the audio clips, and to Mike and Colette for their contributions. Please spread the word via Facebook, twitter, or other forms of social media!

The Night Owl

Well, it's been a long night.  We watched the first double eviction of the season go down, and while the drama was very high and entertaining, I was also extremely sad to see my very favorite person in the house walk out the door. 

When the feeds returned after the show, Amanda and Helen had already begun to game hard again.  They were exchanging stories to Jessie and Aaryn and Spencer and anyone else who would listen about how "Bad" Judd was and how he was a liar and had to go etc..   Alternately, McCrae and Andy were crying and McCrae was second guessing his decision.  When McCrae got a moment alone with Spencer, Spencer told him "I don't know what all this other crap going around about Judd is, but he always told me he was loyal to you and Amanda and Andy.".  This later spawned a conversation between Amanda and McCrae where McCrae told her that he did not actually believe that Judd was up to all the stuff she was claiming he was, and he felt like this was a really bad game move for him to get rid of one of his allies.  DING DING DING!!

Shortly after the feeds had come back, they went to trivia again so the next HOH comp could be played.  Surprise! Andy won!!  I was actually really shocked by the fact that he won, but unfortunately it's disappointing (in my opinion anyway) because it means this will be  ANOTHER freaking week of doing what "the house" wants...meaning what Amanda and Helen want.   Amanda has already told Andy to put up Spencer and Jessie and make Jessie the target.  If one of them wins veto Amanda wants GinaMarie to go up. Andy has agreed to all of this. ...*snore*

Amanda had a meltdown (surprise!) and a small fight with McCrae because she did not win the HOH comp and she blames him for beating her out.  It sounds like it was one of those games where you play against each other and then the last people standing battle it out.  From what I understand the last pairing came down to Andy and McCrae.  Andy then got to choose have-nots, but people volunteered, so he didn't have to choose.  Have-nots ended up being Elissa, Helen, Aaryn, and GinaMarie.

There was a lot more talk between various HGs over the course of the night, but very little of it had to do with game.  Most of it was either sadness over Judd being gone or just talk of how stressful the double eviction was.  Aaryn got her HOH basket. Andy got his HOH room. He got an old fingernail that fell off when he was a kid and his teeth in his HOH basket.  I'm not kidding. They got alcohol and Helen smoked a celebratory cigarette and trumpeted on and on about Andy being "America's HOH" right now. blah..blah...blah..

I expect we will see Spencer and Jessie put on the block this morning.  It should be a fairly uneventful day and week really since there is no longer and MVP or third nomination, and not even a have-not comp.  Even if one of the people on the block wins veto, a predictable nom is going up in their place. 

I have a lot of questions in my head this week.  Why oh WHY won't they take a swing at Aaryn? With 3 HOH wins and a veto win only halfway through the season, why not go after her when they KNOW she can play HOH again this coming week?  They all thought Howard and Judd were "the most dangerous players in the game", but for some reason no one will take a swing at Aaryn the comp monster or Helen or Amanda who have been running every HOH via manipulation since the season started.  I don't get it!

I also want to know what Julie means with all her cryptic tweets about reset buttons and her comment to the HGs during the live show that "this year going to jury does not necessarily mean you are out of the game.".  It could be something totally stupid, OR (and I'm afraid to even hope) it COULD mean one of the evicted HGs will get to come back into the game.  He was one of the only people I was actually entertained by while watching the late night feeds.

Outside of pondering  twists and why this cast REFUSES to shake things up or make a move, the only thing left to do is wait until all the outsiders are voted out so we can actually see who will get who first when it comes down to Helen and Elissa vs McCrae and Amanda.

As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...
