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!

Eviction Night and Possible Endurance HoH Competition

Just a quickie post - feeds have been on trivia for hours - some of us are getting paranoid that Big Brother is getting their hands dirty messing with the HGs.  Howard is/way a lock to go home as of this morning - if he doesn't it will be because Big Brother got involved in some way.  We shall see.

No matter who leaves tonight, we are expecting another Endurance competition - only because the HGs went on lockdown early ealrly Wednesday morning.  No need if it were just a simple quiz competition.

Stay tuned - we will be about to update you when we know more after the show,  and if you haven't signed up for a free trial of the live feeds - WHY NOT?  2 day free trial - click on a banner and get signed up and watch the feeds with us!

The Night Owl

I don't particularly know where to start tonight.  I really thought this would be a recap where I talked about being disappointed over Nick getting evicted (which I am) and poked a little fun at GinaMarie's reactions to it (and I will get there...trust me), but SO much more has happened tonight that my brain feels like mush.  I will try to explain it all, but there is a lot to tell.

 So, the live eviction goes about as we expected it. Howard and Jeremy were the only members of the MC to vote to keep Nick, and Howard knew that he was going home anyway.  When Nick left we heard the sobs we all knew were coming from GinaMarie.

When the feeds returned, GinaMarie was sitting sobbing and blowing her nose into Nick's shorts (I'm not kidding) while wearing his hat and talking about how if she just had ONE more week with him then he would have wanted her and they would have been together.  She threw out a bunch of other stalkerish lines like "You guys don't know what we had together alone when it was just us" and one of my favorites "How do I know he won't find a girl at home? How do I know he is gonna wait for me?".  At first I thought to myself..."My gosh, I've never met someone so completely unaware of reality.", but then I remembered Aaryn, and boy did she prove her delusions tonight!

 

 

While GinaMarie was still crying in her bed and lamenting her sorrows to Aaryn and Kaitlin, Jessie had the audacity to tell her that she was very sorry this had to happen.  GinaMarie told Jessie it was her fault that Nick was gone and then the fighting started from there.  First there was a squabble between GinaMarie, Aaryn, Kaitlin, and Jessie about the bed situation.  Jeremy and Kaitlin had taken over the bed where Jessie and Judd had been sleeping.  Jeremy and Kaitlin didn't ask, they just did it and then proceded to imply that Jessie was a slut.  Well..it wasn't really just implied.  Aaryn flat out called her one. Judd came into the room to see what was going on between the girls and before he could even say anything Kaitlin Screamed "GET THE FUCK OUT OF MY ROOM, JUDD" (even though it's actually the room where HE sleeps and Kaitlin does not).   Judd grabbed Jessie and they went upstairs for Helen's HOH reveal.

 

 

At some point while everyone else was enjoying Helen's HOH reveal, downstairs Aaryn and Kaitlin (with GM still in the room sobbing into Nick's dirty shorts) flipped over Candice's bed and threw her clothes around the room.  I'm not sure why they did it. I missed that part, but when Candice came back downstairs she wasn't happy about it.  When she first came in the room Kaitlin said something smart to her and that was all it took. Candice said something about them flipping her bed and Aaryn was off and running with the racial slurs all over again.  Candice was mostly calm at first, but Aaryn kept snapping at her and making "the black girl voice" to mock her while telling her "she wants to see that black side come out".   Candice eventually started to lose it, and when GinaMarie chimed in with more nonsense, Candice snapped at GM and GM jumped up off the bed and got into Candice's face AGAIN with more racial slurs.  At this point I think Candice probably would have hit GinaMarie if Howard had not very LITERALLY picked Candice up and dragged her out of the room.

 

 

Once Candice and Howard were in the other room, Howard calmed her down a little telling her that he could not control his temper and needed her to stop so she didn't get kicked out of the game.  She went upstairs and confided in Helen and Elissa while Howard stayed downstairs and sobbed in the room alone.  I won't lie to you guys, I had a REALLY hard time watching that happen.  It's the first time watching the BB feeds has ever been emotionally painful for me.

Meanwhile, Amanda had heard that the girls were being mean to Jessie again, and indeed they were.  While Candice was upstairs, they were all railing on her for being a slut and being with Judd now as her "last and 5th choice when everyone else rejected her".  Amanda came in the room and started defending Jessie and saying "let's just ALL clear the air.  Aaryn was not having it so Amanda decided to rat everyone in the room out about each other and what they had all said behind each other's backs.  She told Kaitlin about Aaryn's problems with her and all the mean things she says about her and vice versa.  She told Jessie what they say about her.  Aaryn still balked and told Amanda she was being ridiculous and so Amanda then told Aaryn how she was trying to help her by helping her to stop talking shit behind her alliance's back and stop being portrayed as a racist.  Well of COURSE in Aaryn's mind this isn't actually happening because "she never said one single racist thing ever" so Amanda and Candice are making it all up.  This fight went on for a while and finally ended with Amanda storming off.

 

 

After that fight was over, there were a few smaller tiffs between the mean girls group while Helen and Elissa celebrated upstairs.  Howard and Spencer kind of scrambled around together trying to decide what to do now.  Very clear lines seem to have been drawn now that Nick is gone and the MC alliance is a bust.  Andy, Amanda, McCrae, and Judd are together.  Elissa, Helen, Candice, Jessie and Andy are together (Andy is in almost all the alliances lol), and BlondeTourage still consists of GinaMarie, Aaryn, Kaitlin, and Jeremy.  When Spencer came to Howard and McCrae and wanted to vote Nick out earlier today (not knowing McCrae was going to anyway) he thought that he would still be with MC, but they would have just ditched one member. That turned out not to be the case.  Howard and Spencer are now sort of floating along together without any real home.  Everyone agreed to not let on that the are no longer welcome in the alliance, but it's pretty obvious that they are on their own.

 

 

A bit later, Amanda tried again with Aaryn.  She tried gently approaching what was wrong with what Aaryn was saying and doing in the house, but Aaryn again managed to turn herself into a victiim.  She cried and claimed that she is afraid that people are going to believe she is racist "when she never said one racist thing and Candice just makes stuff up".   McCrae also jumped in on this one and told her she needed to humble herself and stop acting the way she was acting.  Amanda told her that it was her actions that got people like Nick and David who should still be there evicted, because if her alliance wasn't so awful due to her behavior, they might have actually been working together.   Aaryn of course didn't let any of it sink in, but many of you will be happy to know that she did spend a good amount of time crying in the bathroom about it.  I'm sure it was for selfish reasons, but I still take some pleasure in it.

Meanwhile, GinaMarie STILL dressed in Nick's clothes and hat and blowing her nose into his shorts was making sobbing whaling noises like a dying animal.  That's the only way I know to describe it.  I'm not sure I've ever seen anything like this. It's SO much worse than Jessie's funeral in season 11.  Several people have told her that it "isn't like Nick died. He just got evicted". But there is no consoling her.  She has even been wondering out loud if she could possibly get on the same flight as Nick if she self evicted now.  I so wish I were joking when I say that...but I'm not.

 I thought things were gong to wind down a bit and I might be able to put my tired BB'd out ass to bed when McCrae decided it was time to drop the MC bomb on Amanda and Andy.  He told them that there WAS indeed a guys alliance and told them all about how it was formed and how he turned on the alliance.  He said he turned on it because 1. he wanted to be with Amanda, and 2. because Spencer, Howard, and Jeremy were so bad at it.  He told them that it sucks that Nick got evicted because he was the only one who was actually a really good player and would have been great to work with, but that the other three were horribly and obvious and that they pushed him around about it so he had to turn on them.  Amanda and Andy took it really well. Amanda said she still trusts him, and Andy couldn't stop talking about how he can't wait to talk about it in the DR.  I'm not terribly surprised that Andy is excited to talk about anything. 

 

 

Right now they are all still awake but things seem to be winding down, and I am spent so I'm going to have to call it a night. GinaMarie is still crying, but the others are mostly just chit chatting about various game aspects and trying to figure out how the food comp and nominations will go today.  I haven't even heard anyone say who is being nominated yet because the feeds have just been fight fight fight fight, but if I had to guess I would say it would be Aaryn and kaitlin.  The MVP nomination will of course be up to Elissa I'm sure, and she will likely nominate Spencer as a pawn with the intention to backdoor Jeremy if he can't play in the veto comp, or at least get him up there if he doesn't win veto. 

HOH is really irrelevant this week in that the whole side of the house against BlondeTourage has the votes and the same targets, so all that will really matter is who the MVP nominates and who wins the veto. If Jeremy doesn't win he is going home.  If he does win, Aaryn is going home.  And that's the way I expect the week to play out.  Is anyone else already exhausted even though it's only week 3?!  I'm so glad the feeds are at least interesting this year though.  I'm really disappointed in losing Nick as a player, and I blame a lot of it on the MVP twist (and a lot of it on his own game play as well), but I can't complain about all the explosions that happened due to his eviction.  This is the reason most of us watch the feeds.  After tonight's events I'm going to say fairly confidently that Nick really needs to invest in a restraining order, and Aaryn may have to go into witness protection or something when she gets out of the house.

Anyway, that's it.  I'm sorry if this has been a jumbled mess of a blog, but it has been a very VERY long last 24 hours, my eyes are BARELY open, and it is WAY past time for me to sleep. As always, you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more updates.  Until tomorrow night....

The Night Owl

Well, here we are on eviction night eve and everything hinges on this guy:

 

 

Amanda went to work today as usual setting about saving Elissa.  Elissa had already been in Jessie's ear a little trying to sway her and so Amanda decided that if Spencer and Howard were not going to vote their way, she would just send Judd on a mission to get Jessie's vote so that she could save Elissa.  It worked like a charm and Jessie's vote was swayed.

Nick spent all day campaigning and making sure that everything was still good by the MC and everyone who said that they were keeping him in.  They all reassured him that it was, but it seems this may not be the case.

Once Amanda came to McCrae with Jessie's vote being solid, rather than keeping his usual calm and stoic demeanor, he began to celebrate with her.  I mean REALLY celebrate about them being able to keep Elissa and vote out Nick.  Up until now I have only been nervous and thought that he MAY be tempted to be swayed, but I am now thinking that he might ACTUALLY be voting Nick out.  I'm not going to lie, I'm disappointed by it..a lot. 

Here are the facts and reasons I think he might keep Nick:  If he votes against the MC, he will have 3 strong guys after him plus Aaryn, Kaitlin, and GinaMarie (not that the girls are much of a threat).  The MC will expose him and they will immediately want both he and Amanda out.  He also dropped hints to Amanda as if he thought that Candice or Jessie would vote wrong possibly preparing her for the vote he would have to claim was not his own.

Here are the reasons I think he IS voting Nick out:  He seems to have actually fallen for Amanda the man eater.  I think he thinks he may be able to remain protected within the numbers of the until now faux alliance with all the numbers, and also under the shelter of Elissa's weekly MVP protection.  Keeping Ellissa could prove to be a strategic move on his part and would separate him from people like Jeremy who are obviously difficult to deal with and unpredictable.

So that's where things stand and it all hangs in the hands McCrae.  To my dismay, I think Nick is going home.  I shouldn't be surprised, my favorites ALWAYS go home. I think the twist this year is bullshit and this has productions grubby little hands all over it, but when does BB ever NOT screw us with some kind of twist involving past HGs anymore?  I know not everyone agrees with me, so I will avoid a rant.

here is where the votes are:

To Keep Elissa: Judd, Andy, Amanda, Jessie, Candice 

To Keep Nick: Spencer, Howard, Jeremy, Kaitlin, GinaMarie

Unknown vote: McCrae

It's eviction eve and it looks like we are still going to be stuck with Elissa AGAIN.  Everything hinges on the pizza boy from Minnesota.  Until tomorrow night....

The Fortune Teller Finally Speaks - Feeds Will Be Down For 24+ Hours

Monday night at 9:37pm the Fortune Telley, who we now know is named "Crystal," started telling fortunes about all 14 house guests.  These fortunes will obviously be used in the next HoH competition that will take place tonight (Tuesday) at the end of the taping of the eviction show (More on that shortly).

"Crystal" did each fortune a couple times over the course of the night - the HGs were kept up almost all night long with the last fortune being given around 6:30am.  Rachel stayed in bed towards the end since she can't compete in the HoH competition.

The fortunes are all 'funny' and I am guessing the three HGs that compete will have to answer something like 7 questions for points and the HG with the most points will win the competition and be the new HoH.  The fortunes are as follows:

  • In 2018 Shelly will make millions when her book "How I created the perfect tan and how you tan too."  reaches #3 on the all-time best seller list.
  • In 2017 after the hot Miami sun becomes too much for her to bear, Porsche will move to Anchorage, Alaska, and buy an igloo with an Eskimo named Ernie.
  • In 2014 Jeff will disappear from society, he will be last seen wandering the Chicago streets muttering only two words, "Clown Shoe."
  • On Oct 15th, 2011 at 3:42pm Dani will reconcile with her father Dick. On Oct 15th, 2011 at 3:49pm they will go back to not speaking.
  • In 2014 after sleeping for 19 straight days and making national headlines in a sleep study, Kalia will earn her dream job as a matress and pillow tester.
  • In 2016 Lawon will take new york fashion week by storm when he launches his "handsomefied" line of hats, ties, and jackets.
  • After taking 9 years to earn his PhD, Brendan will shock scholars and physicians alike after discovering the cure for an ailment that plagued him his entire life.. Athlete's foot.
  • In 2020 Adam will file for bankruptcy after investing his life savings into a line of bacon scented heavy metal teddy bears for children.
  • In 2018 Rachel will give birth to a 9lb 6oz bouncing baby boy, naming it Bookie Junior after it's proud father.
  • In 2012 Cassie will land a role alongside international mega star David Hasselhoff in the "countryfied" baywatch reboot, Riverwatch.
  • In 2015 Evel Dick will start a Christmas tradition by bringing gifts to heavily tattooed orphans changing his name from Evel Dick to Old Saint Dick.
  • In 2013 Dominic will grace the cover of 17 magazine with the headline "Total DOM-ination" He will dethrone pop sensation Justin Beiber as America's favorite heart throb.
  • In 2015 Keith will land a job hosting a new dating show called "Love Rejection" but it will be short lived after it's revealed he tried to date all 29 female contestants.
  • In 2011, after the runaway success of the humilitard Jordan will launch a line of humilitard inspired items including the humilcar, the humilifier and the humili-bake oven.

With the taping of the eviction show today, the feeds will be (or have been) cut off around 2pm and we have no confirmation on when they will return but we hope it will be after the airing of the eviction show on Wednesday.  So if they cut them at 2pm and turn them back on at 6pm Wednesday they will be off for just over 24 hours.

Assuming they have a live audience tonight we should know who is evicted long before the feeds return and we should also know who wins the next HoH (although the sources will have to be highly trusted for that info).  Even without a source I am 99.9% sure Kalia will be voted out tonight.

Big Brother After Dark tonight will show a pre-taped part of the live feeds from 9am-12pm today.  The Hgs toasted the final five with Mimosas and then made tie dyed shirts and played cards (Big Brother finally gave them real cards to replace the ones they had made themselves.

If you have the live feeds Real is going to provide extra content to fill in the downtime (CBS controls the feeds - Real has no say over when they are blocked) - planned for today is the following:

  • 2-3pm PT live call-in show with Howie and Kevin
  • 3-4pm PT Howie Skypes with Janelle
  • 4-5pm PT Game Show Hour with Kevin & Howie
  • 5-6pm PT Happy Hour w/ Kevin & Howie
  • After that there will be some Live Feed highlights played in a loop overnight.
  • I assume there may be additional programming on Wednesday during the day.

Goodbye Brenchel

The plan of the house all week has been to make Brendon think he's being evicted tonight instead of Rachel. However, the person they'll be evicting is Rachel. They want to blindside Brendon so that he's out of sorts for the HOH competition.

At the beginning of the week, I doubted that they would keep the plan alive and it would be tossed aside along with every other idea that seems to pop up so early. The plan is still full steam ahead though. Rachel will probably have a nervous breakdown tonight - either when Julie announces her eviction or during her interview with Julie. There's no telling what Brendon might do.

I get that the other hamsters don't like Brenchel. Hell, I don't like Brenchel. I can't help but wonder why none of these ding dongs in the house aren't more interested in their two jury votes though. You stick it out in the house with Brendon and Rachel all that time and then, when it's the first week of jury, you decide to just lose it with them and send them out of the house in such a dramatic fashion?

There's no doubt that Brendon and Rachel have had a bad week. Some of it they definitely brought on themselves. But some of it was also brought on by the others in the house. I'm just thankful they didn't hear all of the vile and nasty things that were said about them behind their backs.

Do you think this surprise switch eviction is a good idea? If so, why? Is it because it just makes good TV? Do you think that this helps anybody's game or vote in the jury house? What do you think Brendon's and Rachel's reaction will be on the show tonight?

Let's Go!

There is finally going to be some action up in the Big Brother house today! We are definitely ready for it and I know the hamsters are as well. Now all we have to do is wait to see who becomes HOH tonight to find out exactly how much action there will be.

It's pretty much a given that Annie will be voted out tonight by an 11-0 vote. I suppose there's a chance of a hinky vote by the saboteur but still. Annie knows she's pretty much a goner but it hasn't stopped her from trying to swing some votes - constantly. I appreciate that she's not just laying down and dying but the other houseguests are really sick of it. They see her coming and want to run the other way.

Yesterday, Hayden wrote his HOH blog and received the Big Brother digital camera to take pictures with. He wrote that he believes Britney is the most dangerous person in the house and I tend to agree with him on that. Hayden is worried about Enzo too even though he's in an alliance with him. And it's interesting that Hayden also singled out Kristen in his blog. I do believe he has a little crush on her.

Big Brother 12 houseguests - Week 1Also yesterday, they received oversized golf clubs and balls to practice with in the backyard. That means tonight's HOH competition will involve them using something to hit something else and will be elimination-style. Big shocker right? Britney seems to have some golfing experience and was doing quite well in the practice. Matt, Lane, and Enzo? Not so good.

The saboteur will be revealed to us tonight during the live show. I'm not quite sure how I feel about that. At first, I was excited to be learning who the saboteur is but I think I'd really rather they keep it a secret to us so that we can try and figure it out on our own. Personally, I still have no idea who it is. There are a few people I have in mind (Matt, Britney, Kathy) and there are a few people I know it definitely isn't (Andrew, Lane, Hayden). But I guess I'm going to find out who it is tonight regardless of whether I want to or not.

Now I definitely can't wait to find out who wins HOH tonight and who they nominate tomorrow. If you have the live feeds, you'll want to make sure they're on at 9:00 PM ET to watch the aftermath of the HOH competition as well as all of the ego-stroking and drama the rest of the night.

Who do you want to win HOH tonight? Do you think the vote to evict Annie will be unanimous tonight? Do you think Annie will go quietly into Julie Chen's arms or do you think there will be some drama in her leaving? Who do you think the saboteur is and would you rather find out tonight from CBS or would you prefer figuring it for yourself? Let us know in the comments!

Tonight's (Not) Live Broadcast Preview

The rumors have been confirmed - tonight's show will be taped earlier in the afternoon, and the BB sites have been filled with complaints.

But I sort of get the reasoning behind it, as I don't believe it's just because of the fears of a few curses or racial epithets getting through. This is bound to be the most explosive episode in history, and tempers could lead things to get out of hand. CBS is just as afraid of hand gestures and violence as they are of the "seven words you can't say on TV". Flipping a person off can't be digitally blurred on the fly, and even the quickest control room can't guarantee that they'll make the camera changes on time.

It sucks, but is the reality of broadcast television.
