After a very very eventful day, tonight wasn't really anything special. We all know Elissa went crazy today, to avoid having to re-write the details of all that, you can just read Scott's blog about it here: http://www.bigbrothergossip.com/bbg/2013/8/21/crazy-elissa.html .
Prior to Elissa's total insanity fest, most of the people in the house were targeting either Amanda or Amanda and McCrae for the upcoming week, but using "we are going after Elissa" as their cover story. However, now that Elissa decided to sink her own ship, everyone actually is after her. As mad as everyone is right now, I'm not even sure they will target the returning jury member over her, which in my mind is great. It would give whoever returns a week to re-integrate themselves in and try to form some bonds, make deals etc.. Instead of walking right back out the door the following Thursday. Unless it's Helen, in which case she can walk right back out at any time. PLEASE don't let it be Helen!! The only way I think Elissa will be able to be saved this week is 1. The HGs do decide to just oust whoever comes back, 2. she wins HOH (in which case Aaryn and Spencer will go up or Aaryn and Amanda) or 3. She wins veto again.
Anyway, after all the big events of the day, for a long time it was just Elissa bashing and Movie talk. Around midnight GinaMarie got very sad and started to cry in the cockpit. It's her birthday and she is a have-not, plus she felt some of the others were making fun of her. So, while she cried in the cockpit, the other HGs (minus Elissa) decided to toilet paper her bed and dress up in her clothes and throw a party to cheer her up. GinaMarie gave a speech and they all talked about their favorite GM moments, and everyone was happy for a while.
After the party was over, there was some general chit chat and then the HGs (minus Helen and Elissa) started speculating about the coming HOH. Amanda and McCrae do want Elissa out, but they are also after Aaryn this week. Everyone thinks this is going to be The Wall endurance. To be honest, I didn't pay attention to what time they were locked down, but it could very well be endurance. With a HG coming back from Jury, it would be fitting to do an endurance comp and make them really fight it out for HOH.
Helen has accepted that she is leaving, and the other HGs have made lots of plans for the upcoming week, but all of those may become null and void once the announcement of a returning player comes. We will just have to see. I am super excited as this should be a pretty crazy night regardless of who comes back and who wins HOH (GO JUDD!!). I'm going to prepare myself for an evening of madness. As always, you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight live feed updates. Until tomorrow night...
