Big Brother Season 15, Episode 23 Recap

It’s a pretty straightforward episode tonight. A little blonde hated by America is again in the HOH, and her nominations are pretty much sewn up by a pre-live show tantrum. Also, an embarrassing video package of another pair’s exchange of rings. Or so we’re led to believe.

We start off with a look back at Jessie’s eviction. Amanda is happy, and brags about “having a hand in every single eviction”, and hopes to have the same influence “on every single person who will be” sent packing. Jessie is seen hugging Helen, who hopes that the rest of the house believes her word over Jessie’s. Spencer says what he says on every Sunday’s show - he’s happy to be saved again but doesn’t want to be nominated ever again. He does think he’s in a good position. Jessie finally hugs Andy, who says he loves her, and she’s out the door.

Spencer thanks them all as they watch her picture go black, and then Andy walks away crying. He says it wasn’t a “personal vendetta”, but it was good for his game. She was a good friend, though, so he’s sad she’s gone.

We move on to Aaryn’s victory over Amanda in the HOH contest. Aaryn says in the diary room that it’s great to win, but it’s also “really scary because every time a big move needs to be made in this game, I’m the person people go to”. GinaMarie makes her nightly cameo, saying that even though they have their fights, they’re like sisters. I have no idea what that means, but they do have an hour to fill.

Amanda, though, is upset. “I can’t win anything!” She starts bitching to McCrae, who says that since it was musical he thought she’d win. Amanda just can’t handle pressure, though, and McCrae makes the mistake of saying he’ll never throw another competition. Amanda responds that “just the fact you’re saying that means you don’t trust her”. He doesn’t trust anybody, he replies. She then jumps up, and starts crying. “You don’t need to rub it in. I know. I know I suck.” McCrae says that he needs to start trusting the “next best person out there”.

The funny music comes up as Amanda hides behind a garbage can in the storage room to cry. Meanwhile, Spencer and GinaMarie talk about how she’s a sore loser. “I hope he fucking loses this whole...she’s just going to fucking ruin his life”.

Elissa and Helen are now lounging in the cockpit room. Helen whispers to her that she shouldn’t worry, as “you have the votes to stay”. In the diary room, Elissa mumbles out the most obvious statement of the show - “Aaryn winning HOH is not good for my game”. Really, Sherlock? Elissa tells Helen that she’s worried that Aaryn will put both of them up. “She won’t”, replies Helen, which makes this writer giggle. Elissa then says it could be her versus Amanda, as we get another shot of Amanda behind the garbage can. Helen tells Elissa to go talk to Aaryn, but she doesn’t want to do that.

Instead, Helen does it for her. As she walks across the set, we get to listen to an overly-extended diatribe on how Helen is going to work her magic on Aaryn. Out of the blue, Helen grabs Aaryn by the arm and tells her that she won on her own, and shouldn’t feel bad for her own success. Aaryn gives her a “bitch, please”, while Helen continues on her cheerleading act. “I am so amazed by you.” Seriously, this is idiotic, although Aaryn says in the diary room that she enjoyed the “turn your frown upside down, girlfriend” chat.

Poor McCrae is still trying to make Amanda feel better, and she claims that after a bit of alone time she’s ready to “target my next victim”. She tells McCrae that it was better that neither of them won, as they’re becoming a huge target. “She needs to put up Elissa and Helen”, with Helen going home.

McCrae heads into the cockpit room to talk to Aaryn, who says she’s putting up Elissa and Spencer. She says that’s the best move for her, but McCrae warns her that Amanda is going to say Helen instead of Spencer...at the exact moment that Amanda walks in. She explains that if Helen isn’t put up, if she wins veto then neither her nor Elissa will go home. Aaryn is worried that they’re going to know the three of them are working together, so McCrae walks out.

After he’s gone, Amanda tells her to make Helen believe Elissa is actually her target. Andy then walks in, and Aaryn says in the diary room that she’s not exactly excited about the “blood” that comes with putting up Helen. Andy, though, is all for the Helen/Elissa noms.

We sit through some commercials before some filler. It’s all about how hard it is for 3 AM to get together without anybody noticing. So they all have roles - Amanda is the Mastermind, Andy is the Agent who makes deals, Aaryn is the beast because “I get things done”, and McCrae is somehow the Enforcer. “It’s ironic”, he says, but Aaryn says it’s because everybody trusts him.

Speaking of filler, it’s time for the HOH reveal. Ugh, this sucks. I”m as excited as Elissa.

With that idiocy over, Helen is again telling Elissa that she needs to talk to Aaryn. Elissa doesn’t want to talk to anybody she doesn’t care for. “I’m really not sure that talking with Aaryn is worth my time.” Helen is pissed. Elissa goes on about how she misses her kid, and Elissa reminds her that it’s the same situation with her. Elissa also says that if she’s evicted, she’s not going to jury. She’s going home, instead. Now Helen is really pissed. “So if I make it to the end, you’re not there to vote for me?” Elissa’s response is to stare. That’s it.

Funny how they’re not showing how Elissa snubbed Aaryn and GinaMarie right before the last eviction show. That’s really what this is all about.

Helen finally walks away from Elissa, and turns on her tear ducts before walking into the HOH room to fight their battle. She’s still pissed at Elissa, because she has done so much for her. Finally, Helen walks in, and Andy asks her how Elissa is doing. Then it all starts. Sorry, but despite what Helen says in the diary room, these tears are fake. Helen goes on about Elissa’s plan to not go to jury, and how that means she’ll lose her vote. Sorry, Helen, but that is the wrong thing to say, although they all pretend to feel concerned. Plus, it gives them all an open opportunity to bitch about her...especially GinaMarie. “Helen, don’t cry”, says Amanda with a smile in the diary room. “Elissa’s not the target. You are.”

It’s now time for the Have-Not competition. There’s a black box, and the teams with the fastest time wins. That’s the only description you’re getting from me, because I don’t really care. The end result is that the girls (minus Aaryn) are Have-Nots.

Back to the real game. Oh wait, it’s more filler, as Helen talks to GinaMarie about her background. Complete with uplifting music, until GinaMarie says something stupid. Ugh.

Ok, we’re now back, and Elissa is now apologizing and sucking up to Aaryn. It just doesn’t work for her, though. Maybe she was right in telling Helen that it was a waste of time. Elissa can’t grovel. She can’t give praise. She can only do what is good for herself, although saving herself would be good for her. Which is why this apology turns into Elissa complaining about her stupid yoga mat. Oh well.

This is followed by Helen asking Andy to leave the room so she can talk to Aaryn. She says she knows that Elissa is going up, and Aaryn says that she doesn’t care if Elissa or Spencer goes home. This isn’t good news for Helen, who claims that she would not use the veto if those two were on the block. Aaryn again tells us in the diary room that Helen is her favorite person in the world, but “nobody comes between her and 3 A.M.” Ewwwww, CBS, why did you feed her that awful line?

So here we are with the nominations. Will it be Elissa and Spencer? Or Elissa and Helen? Or none of the above? As we watch Aaryn put in the keys, we’re led to believe it could by any combo of the three people.

They’re all called in, and the first key pulled belongs to GinaMarie, followed by Spencer, Amanda, McCrae and Andy. Yes, Elissa and Helen are nominated. Aaryn says she nominated them both because they’re a “power duo” that will come after her “power duo”.

Spencer, of course, is beaming because for the first time in weeks he’s not nominated. Elissa seems to be reading a script as she complains that she hates being on the block, and doesn’t want to lose her partner, Helen. Surprisingly, Helen is upbeat, saying that she “trusts” Aaryn, but she “doesn’t take anything for granted. Even close friendships.” Amanda ends the segment by happily bragging that everything is going her way, and she just loves a “good old fashioned blindside”. Well, you’ll have to keep your big mouth shut for that to happen.

That’s all, folks. What did you think of tonight’s episode? Are you happy with the nominations? Or the sight of Amanda behind a garbage can? At least we didn't have her embarrassing "wedding", as we were told we'd see. Tell us. Tell us now!

The Night Owl

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present your veto winner:

I know. I was surprised too.  Apparently the veto comp was this year's version of OTEV. OTEV was a love-sick beaver.  From what I have heard on the feeds, Elissa went into beast mode and was unstoppable in the competition even managing to someone half-blacken Andy's eye.

The most hilarious part of this veto win for me is that Helen was jumping up and down, dancing embarrassingly, and arrogantly boasting about how she and Elissa are both staying and Spencer is leaving when in actuality, Helen is definitely still leaving.  The scary part of course is that with Helen leaving on THIS Thursday, she could potentially bounce right back into the house if she wins the competition to re-enter.

Right after the veto comp McCrae and Amanda had a bit of a debate about next week.  Amanda already has her plan in place to ditch Spencer, but McCrae thinks that Elissa is more dangerous since she has now won more comps than Spencer and cannot be controlled once Helen is gone.  I'm pretty sure Amanda will end up winning again as usual, but it's worth noting there was at least a debate about it.

Speaking of Amanda and McCrae, they also had a small tiff when Amanda decided to have a meltdown because....wait for it.....she had not seen enough of McCrae today.  I'm not sure how that's even really possible in the BB house, but she manged to freak out about it.

Helen wasted no time after the veto comp in trying to make a new alliance wtih GinaMarie to secure GinaMarie''s vote.  She is sure that she has Amanda, McCrae, Elissa, and Amanda, but she wants it to be a unanimous vote, so she went to work on GinaMarie.  GinaMarie did her usual "agree with everything but mean none of it" thing and later told Aaryn about the whole conversation.

GinaMarie also had a meltdown tonight.  She was apparently sad that OTEV did not ask any questions about Nick, and "that's all she wanted".  While she was crying to Aaryn about it, Aaryn leaked Andy's suggestion from earlier in the day that the three of them got to final three instead of taking Amanda and McCrae.  Aaryn was not supposed to tell GinaMarie, but I doubt Andy will find out she knows since GM is probably the ONLY one in the house that is good about keeping her mouth shut when it comes to Game info.

Amanda once again told Elissa tonight that Helen is leaving.  She told her it's done and there is no point in her trying to get a campaign together because it will just put a target on her.  Amanda had dropped hints to Elissa before about Helen possibly going this week, but apparently it did not sink in until this time.  I'm curious as to whether in the coming days Elissa will tell Helen or not.  She doesn't really have any reason not to as she has her veto and can't be sent home this week.  She is also much closer to Helen then she is to Amanda, so chances are high she will tip Helen off at some point.

The rest of the night was mostly spent drunkenly (for the ones that could drink) talking over each other and hanging out.  Since Helen has no idea she might be the target, there really isn't a lot of campaigning or gaming going on yet, but I am sure as she gets more paranoid it will ramp up in the next few days.

That's pretty much it. As always,  you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight live feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Well, Aaryn is HOH for the freaking 4th time this season, but for once I am actually kind of glad that for the most part Amanda controls her.  I want to see Helen or Elissa evicted this week, and that is likely going to happen. 

As soon as the feeds returned after the HOH live show, we found Amanda once again crying and picking a fight with McCrae because she didn't win HOH.  The amusing part about this particular time was that both McCrae AND Aaryn tried to throw it to her, but she STILL couldn't win it.  I take that back, the MOST amusing part about it was that she crawled behind a trash can in the pantry to cry about it.

Shortly after the hiding behind the trash can incident, Amanda pulled herself together to go immediately get in Aaryn't ear and let her know they were evicting Helen this week.  Aaryn was totally okay with the idea of putting up Elissa and Helen, and Elissa did not help herself by apparently making comments about not wanting to sit near GinaMarie or Aaryn during the live show.

Right before or after (I don't remember which) the time that Amanda and Aaryn were deciding to put up Helen and Elissa (with Spencer as a replacement if one of them comes down) McCrae and Andy had a chat with their fake alliance member Helen and promised her to try to pitch for Spencer to be the one to go up on the block with Elissa so they could vote out Spencer.  This of course won't actually happen, but everyone is trying to get Helen to believe she is not the target.

While Andy and McCrae sweet talked Helen, Amanda filled in Spencer on what was going on in the other room.  Since it's necessary to put up Helen with Elissa (so that Helen can't win veto and use it on Elissa) Spencer will not be going up, so Aaryn and Amanda agreed they must make deals with him this week.

After Helen was finished talking to McCrae and Andy, she went and briefly spoke with Aaryn and GinaMarie about the things Elissa had been saying about them during the live show.  She could tell they were pretty upset and she then fled the room to go find Elissa and try to get her to apologize and play nice with Aaryn to keep herself off the block.  Elissa being..well..Elissa, was not okay with the idea of apologizing to anyone.  Most of her argument consisted of her talking about how she has more to worry about than some 22 year old. She has kids at home.. blah blah blah.  I really thought Rachel was weird in her first season, but finding out that Rachel was the normal one of the two sisters continues to blow my mind on a daily basis.  Elissa proceeded to talk about how she would walk if she were sent to Jury because she would rather go home to her family than spend time with the people in the jury house.

This conversation sent Helen flying back up to the HOH room where Aaryn, Spencer, Andy, McCrae, and Amanda were all hanging out.  Helen turned on the tears and sobbed it out about how she NEEDS Elissa's vote if she is in the final 2, and now she can't help Elissa anymore, but she has to play for herself.  In my opinion, all of this (including the tears) was Helen speak for "You can't put me up on the block if you feel sorry for me because I'm sobbing and I'm a mom."  Apparently I'm not the only one who felt that way since Amanda and McCrae want downstairs and chatted about how they both had no sympathy for what Helen was doing.

Helen eventually calmed down and after that everyone hung out in the HOH (well everyone except for Elissa) and chit chatted for the predominant part of the rest of the night.  They all spent a while telling Helen she just has to play for herself etc..  They did Candice impersonations. They talked about Jury house and how awkward it will be when Jessie gets there, and they tried to make Helen feel comfortable because no one wants her freaking out or knowing she is the target. They want her to believe the target is Elissa, and from what I understand, they want Elissa to believe she is the target as well until they blindside Helen. 

Helen has now gone downstairs and says she is going to bed.  Everyone else seems to be winding down, and I am about to give up since they won't stop talking about production and getting the feeds cut every few seconds.  I am very very VERY excited to see Helen on the block as the target this week, but I do have reservations.  The jury twist was announced on tonight's live show.  The absolute LAST thing I want to happen is to have Helen evicted this Thursday only to bounce RIGHT back into the house by winning the competition against Judd, Jessie, and Candice.  I feel like if Elissa got booted, it would likely be Judd or Jessie (hopefully Judd) going back in, but if Helen goes out...it makes me nervous.  I will just have to see how the week plays out.  For all we know Helen could win veto and save herself leaving them to oust Elissa. Or if Elissa makes them miserable enough this week, they may oust her anyway. 

Either way, there should be a have-not competition this morning followed by nominations in the evening.  Helen and Elissa should go up unless something drastic changes between now and then.  Hopefully nominations bring fireworks! As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight live feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

FIGHT NIGHT!!!

Loose lips sink ships, and Helen talks a LOT!  At some point during the night a conversation happened (that I missed) in which Helen talked in front of both Aaryn and Jessie about Jessie trying to flip the house last week.  This offended Jessie.

Next thing you know, Jessie marched herself downstairs to confront Helen at the pool table about saying that in front of Aaryn who is a known ally of Amanda.  Helen told Jessie it was common knowledge that she tried to flip the house last week. Jessie called Helen out by telling her it wasn't just HER trying to flip the house. Helen and Elissa were in on it too.  Helen responded to this by saying "Well, that's a lie!" (it isn't) and marching back inside to try to find someone to victimize herself to.

 

Then the re-tells began! Helen ran and started re-telling her version of the story to Amanda and Andy.  Helen's version was of course far from the truth and made it sound like Jessie might as well have been running after her with a butcher knife. 

While Helen was upstairs rattling on about what a victim she was, Jessie was downstairs in the cockpit with McCrae telling him EVERYTHING.  She told him about the plan to get Amanda out. She told him she was in on it.  She told him that the reason it crumbled was because Helen and Elissa needed her to make out with Judd and try to get his vote, but they were not able to get Judd or Andy, so the plan failed.  This of course was validation to McCrae that everything Judd told he and Amanda about Helen and Elissa was actually true.  A little late, but he gets it now.  Unfortunately, Amanda came along and like some bellowing over protective freak yanked him from the cockpit and wouldn't let him talk to Jessie anymore.

Jessie followed McCrae and Amanda outside and started to tell Amanda the exact same information, but as people started filing in and out of the house, the conversation kind of stopped.  Amanda however, was in favor of calling a house meeting to get everything straightened out.  The house meeting never happened, but Helen confronted Jessie in the bathroom in front of Amanda and McCrae as soon as they came inside.  Helen accused Jessie of being a liar, and Jessie basically just said "yeah, okay Helen" and off stomped Helen to the HOH to complain and victimize herself some more.  She only stopped on the way to announce "That's okay, she's going HOME on Thursday!" to the entire house.

After Helen had begun her 3rd or 4th re-tell of the night to Andy, Jessie came upstairs and round 3 began Jessie vs Helen.  Jessie was calling Helen on everything! She was on point too.  All of this happened right in front of Andy.  All Helen could really do was keep saying "Okay, I'm DONE with this!" and "No I didn't"  in a very non-convincing manner.  Jessie sucks at competitions and at Big Brother for the most part, but she OWNED Helen in this fight. 

During the middle of the fight, Elissa felt the need to lean in the HOH door and ask Jessie if she was on any new drugs from the DR.  Jessie told her she was offended that Elissa would ask that.  Elissa told her that she was acting so crazy, she just thinks she is on some kind of new medication. I'm not kidding you guys, this is how Elissa acts.  I can't tell if she is bat-shit crazy, a passive aggressive shit stirrer, or both.  Whatever it is, I'm so amused!

Eventually the fight between Jessie and Helen ended and Jessie was called to the DR.  Amanda, McCrae, Aaryn, and Andy were then subjected to Helen's thousandth re-tell of the night in the HOH room.  Each re-tell of course being even MORE ridiculous than before, and Helen of course still not admitting that she DID in fact try to get Amanda out last week and even celebrated when she got Elissa on board for it.

Amanda and McCrae eventually went downstairs into the bedroom they have to themselves this week and had a small fight where Amanda told McCrae that it was a huge slap in the face to her for him to have been talking to Jessie in the cockpit.  McCrae explained to Amanda that he has to play his game too. They also argued about the fact that McCrae thought Jessie was telling the truth for the most part and that meant that Judd was not the one putting up Amanda and not the one trying to get her out.  Amanda did not agree at the time, BUT, in the middle of their spat, they heard yelling coming from upstairs and decided to go listen.

Helen and Jessie were having round 4 at the chess table!

Amanda and McCrae listened as Jessie and Helen went back and forth again.  This time, THINKING she was more alone, Helen admitted to being in on the plan a little more than she had before.  I guess she didn't realize she was screaming it at megaphone volume though.  Elissa realizing what was happening came running to where Amanda and MCrae could hear what was happening and started talking REALLY loudly about how offended she was that Jessie was offended about the "on drugs" inquiry.  She made sure to talk loud enough that they could no longer hear what Helen was saying, and kept it up until round 4 of the fight was over. 

Elissa then planted herself in McCrae and Amanda's bed with them, so that she could sit and talk shit about how "insane" Jessie is.  Aaryn joined them along with Helen, and it became a free for all talk shit about Jessie session.  Amanda and McCrae were basically just laughing along with what the others were saying, but Helen was still screaming and so was Elissa, and Aaryn was still talking at audible volume.  They laughed about the plan to blindside Jessie this week, and about her going to jury.  They kept talking about how crazy she is etc.. etc..

Jessie was listening at the door to the whole thing.

Everyone scattered to their separate places to chat after a while.  Helen, Elissa, and Aaryn went into the have-not room to continue bashing Jessie, while Amanda and McCrae went into the bathroom to chat.  Amanda and McCrae both agreed that they knew now that Helen was trying to get Amanda out, and that Elissa was likely in on it.  Both stated that this means they HAVE to strike first this week and get Helen gone unless she wins veto in which case they send home Elissa.

While they were in the bathroom talking, Jessie started hiding people's things and then went to her bed to start reading her Bible.  While she was reading, Andy came in the room to ask her what was up.  Jessie told him "I know everything, Andy. I heard them all talking through the door."  Andy asked "What did you hear?"  Jessie said "What do you THINK I heard?!".  Andy then realized he was busted and Joined Amanda and McCrae in the bathroom to talk some more about what was going on.

Andy, McCrae, and Amanda all agreed that Helen and Elissa messed up the plan to just have a drama free week and not have anything happen until they blindsided Jessie.  Andy agrees that Helen or Elissa need to go, and that Jessie was right about Helen trying to get Amand out last week. 

Jessie came out of her room and went to go smoke slamming the door behind her while they were all talking.  Spencer and GinaMarie were outside and played dumb to knowing what was going on.  Both of them knew for the most part what was happening, but had the fortunate luck to have not been in the rainbow room talking shit while Jessie was listening at the door.

Jessie told Spencer and GinaMarie that she is content now and that she doesn't mind going, she is just glad she knows that she wasn't crazy and that all these people really were working together and not with her.  She said she can now go with a clear conscience now that she has called out Helen on all of her bullshit. 

Everyone is starting to wind down now and just talk game in their little corners.  I think the main thing that happened tonight was the beginning of the sinking of the SS Helen.  The only people left that actually trust her now are Aaryn and Elissa, so she should probably start praying now that one of them gets HOH.  A lot of other small conversations and tiffs also happened tonight, but it was really hard to keep up as all of this stuff happened very quickly on all four feeds.  I think you get the general idea though. Jessie is DEFINITELY going home now, but she didn't go down without providing some last minute entertainment for us all.  We still have a few more days before eviction for some blowups to happen (fingers crossed).   The upcoming HOH comp just got a LOT more exciting!! 

As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night... (unless something crazy starts happening again and I need to follow-up.)
