Throw Out The Alliance Charts - Here Is How I See It.

I've had a really hard time this season explaining the 'Alliances' to people when asked.  The reason is because since Jeremy was given the boot, there really has not been one easy to define alliance of more than two people much less two major opposing alliances.  So after much thinking I came up with a visual of a piece of tile, or perhaps a plate where the outside keeps getting chipped away slowly.

That lead me to create the following image - which I further refined by placing circles trying to show who was closest the middle where the strongest forces are.

Helen is one very strong 'force' and I see Amanda/McCrae as the other (I do feel Amanda is the more dominent of those two however). 

The next layer out has Andy and Elissa.  These two have close ties to both Amanda and Helen but I don't think of them as floaters since Amanda and Helen have been working together for most of the game (this relationship HAS to end soon). 

Next in "orbit" (I've also compared this to a Solar System with two suns), would be GinaMarie, Judd and Aaryn.  Judd has fallen out of favor of late, although he doesn't seem to be too aware of it, if I were to re-do this I might bump him out to the next area.

That next and, once Candice leaves, final area has Jesse and Spencer in it.  Today Helen has been working to get closer to Spencer but I suspect thats only to keep him from getting close to Amanda/McCrae, I don't think she plans on pulling him in any closer.

Candice is all but gone - she and Howard would have been in the same area last week.

Thats how I see things, its going to have to fall apart soon, Helen and Amanda have already both explored the idea of voting each other out just this past weekend.  As soon as they split the others will pick a side and the lowest will probably end up floating between while the middle people get picked off.

Does this help you visualize things?  It will most likely be worthless after the second eviction on Thursday, although Jesse or Judd may go, the last three players to go via the second eviction in a double eviction night were Joe (BB14), Mike Boogie Ashlee (BB14) and Jeff (BB13).

More Drama on a Tuesday

The last two Tuesday's have been busy in the drama department on the Big Brother Live Feeds

Amanda has been extremely paranoid since she went up for nomination on Saturday and she is convinced that Howard is the MVP and thus nominated her.  Spencer meanwhile has been trying to get the votes together to vote Amanda out and thus keep both Howard and Candice safe.  The problem is that there aren't enough people that want to go against Amanda, McCrae, Helen, etc etc.  Judd and Andy have lied to Spencer though and let him think they might be willing to flip and vote Amanda out.  Because they are mostly loyal to Amanda, she knows that Spencer has been campaigning to get her out.

Today around 12:29 Amanda confronted Spencer and sorta accused him of going after her.  Spencer lied and maintained that he was going after Candice.  After 30 mintues of arguing Amanda pretty much told Spencer that if anyone voted for her to go on Thursday she would be coming after him.  She also implied she wouldn't come after him if no one voted for her.  Problem is there aren't many people left on the 'wrong' side of the house for Amanda to go after.   This is a discussion well worth checking out so if you have the Live Feeds tune in and watch.

A couple hours later Candice, who had heard Spencer said he was voting for her, called a house meeting where she read Spencer the riot act.  She of course had been approached by Spencer with the plan to try to vote out Amanda.  Spencer should have admitted he told her that in front of everyone with the excuse of, "What was I supposed to say to you? I wanted you out?"  But instead he denied he said anything like she accused him of.  After she was done tearing into Spencer, Howard announced he still wanted to 'self evict' - and rambled on and on about how people weren't playing the game the right way and he'd rather just go (and yet he is still in the house... hmmmm).  Its another place to check out - point your player to 3pm to hear Candice bawl Spencer out in front of the entire house.

The last event worth checking out is a bit controversial.  We only see a brief glimpse of Howard whispering to Amanda around 5:10pm on Camera 4 - then the cam cuts away and you have to switch to Cams 1/2 - after Howard walks away Amanda tells Andy and Judd that Howard whispered something to the effect of wanting to hook up with her after the show. All we can go on is Amanda's word for now and I suspect this will never be seen on the CBS show.  Watch it and decide for yourself!

Howard is still on a path to head home on Thursday.  Aaryn is upset because she wants Candice to go and feels she has no control. Of course thats her own fault for keeping her 'deal' with Amanda and Helen to be kept safe and put up people they wanted.

Paranoia, The Destroyer

Silly boy, you self-destroyer 

Paranoia, the destroyer 

Self-destroyer, wreck your health

Destroy your friends, destroy yourself

                 Kinks "Destroyer"

 

Yeah yeah, Scott's usually the one to post lyrics but this song has been running through my head all day after Spencer used the POV he won on Saturday and Aaryn put Candice up on the block in his place.

Actually ever since Amanda was put up by "America" the house has been non-stop paranoia.  Amanda is super worried she might go up.  And late last night as Ash mentioned she started to suspect Judd of being some kind of sneaky mastermind.  18 hours later she now seems convinced that Judd is MVP this week and may have even been MVP LAST week.   The running around she has done today from HG to HG may in the end come back to haunt her.

Through all of this they still seem to be targeting Howard to go home, however Spencer is making a bit of an effort to rally the minority of the house to vote out Amanda thus making a 'bold' move.

Its really a strange season.  Helen has been completely obsessed with the Jury and her obsession has worked its way into others thinking.  We don't even know when the just starts yet but franly they should be more concerned about their alliances and not who they want out before or after Jury.

Some have called today the most boring day of the season.  I don't think thats the case but it certainly hasn't been one to write a huge blog post about.  So with that I sign off ;)

Elissa Don't Flatter Yourself, and other stuff.

Today I happened to have very little time to check out the feeds - which seemed just fine as the drama seemed to be on hold since the house seemed to be on track to vote out Kaitlin on Thursday and she seems non the wiser.   I knew that Judd would get his camera and tweet and do his HoH blog and that would be it for a lazy Tuesday.

So I was amazed to find out Elissa had several 'break downs' today - getting very upset with other HGs and 'production' - saying she wanted to go home and more.  She also warned Kaitlin that she might be going home - forcing the HGs wanting Kaitlin out to scramble to cover their butts.  I went back to catch up and here is a partial timeline of the events I caught and when you can see them on flashback. 

3:15pm Elissa is sitting out back with Amanda, McCrae and andy and Elissa is complaining about Howard whom she feels uses his religion as a tool in the house (I think by swearing on the bible, etc).  Amanda goes on saying she takes her religion seriously and as she is venting Andy and McCrae are apparently exchanging glances with each other as Elissa is being a bit loud.  This exchange between Andy and MCrae includes an uncomfortable laugh. 

Its this laugh that Elissa latches on to and accuses Andy and McCrae of making fun of her religion.

Thats it folks - that was the beginning of the meltdown of Elissa that went on for HOURS.  Andy and McCrae tried talking to Elissa in the bathroom and in a bedroom and Elissa won't give them much time at all - telling each not to 'flatter themselves' that she isn't trying to impress people (it really makes little sense but that phrase is used often by Elissa.

4:18pm The HGs are all on an HoH lockdown - I'm not sure why.  Elissa heads into the HoH bathroom and takes up residence in the HoH shower - talking with Amanda and complaining about Andy and McCrae again as well as Howard, GinaMarie..... Productions.... feeling she isn't being treated fairly.

4:49pm Helen tells Aaryn that she should be safe on Thursday - that she thinks they have the votes to keep her.  Elissa was asleep and not melting down when this went on.

7:31pm Elissa tells Kaitlin that someone is lying and she may be going home.  She says that she heard Kaitlin had a final four alliance with Spencer and Howard.  This was a semi-lie told to Elissa by Helen to get her to want to vote out Kaitin.

7:38pm Unseen to Elissa - Aaryn apparently overheard parts of the convo (specifically the part about a final four alliance) and she runs and reports the info to Amanda and McCrae in the HoH room..

At the same moment Kaitlin talks to Andy in Storage Room and he tries to calm Kaitlins fears and Kaitlin seems to think Elissa is just messing with her.

7:48pm Kailtin actually tells Aaryn what she and Elissa talked about.  At the same moment Andy is filling McCrae and Amanda in on his talk with Kaitlin.

7:51pm Aaryn fills in Helen on the convo between Elissa and Kaitlin.  Helen is stupified and Aaryn feels Elissa wants her out so bad she'll do anything.

7:55pm Kaitlin actually goes and talks to Howard and Spencer.  Telling them what Elissa told them.  Of course they are all clueless because there is no deal - it was just a lie made up for Elissa.

7:58pm Elissa is in a back bedroom complaining about Aaryn to Gina and Judd.  Helen enters the bedroom and Gina laughs saying Elissa is talking about an alliance and Helen acts stumped in front of Elissa - who of course got the info from Helen.  SOMEHOW Elissa turns this around and blames it on Aaryn. 

8:06pm Aaryn walks into the bedroom and she and Elissa start to have words.  This ends up in almost the entire house meeting in a bedroom.  Elissa never names Helen as the person that told her of the alliance she is all fired up about.  Its hard to describe it all as its VERY late for me - you really should just use flashback to go to each of these moments to watch them unfold.

In the end it looks like Kaitlin is still going home - and the tension between Aaryn and Elissa has reached new levels.  Elissa should be figuring out that she was lied to - or at the very least she can't trust Helen.

Its 12am - I need to get my tail to bed.  Night all!!

Oh - now we have some more potential drama with Amanda talking to Howard about things Candice has said about her.  She wants Howard to make sure Candice doesn't say bad things about her.  OMG this convo is hurting my head.  Amanda and Howard don't like each other and they are pretending to be in an alliance with each other.  Its painful to listen to them dance around each other with their words.
