MVP Nomination and POV

The MVP nomination was made this morning and once again it is Amanda that was put up by America.

Her initial reaction seemed calm however once the POV is played & if she doesn't win it - we may see he get upset once again.

Besides Amanda, Candice, Jesse and HoH GinaMarie playing for the POV, Spencer and Judd will be playing as well.

The Night Owl

Wow, what a day/night.  So, I might as well start by saying Amanda woke up with a bug up her ass about Judd today.  After her fight with McCrae last night involving them deciding that they don't exactly trust Judd, she apparently woke up in the exact same mindset and then things just snowballed and she talked about him ALL. DAY. LONG.

When the feeds came back from trivia after the POV ceremony, Candice was on the block as expected, but to be honest I have only seen Candice maybe twice today and both times she was horizontal and fighting with Howard about something.  Amanda however was front and center on the cameras after the nomination ceremony.  Early in the morning she had spoken with both Judd and Andy separately about the conversation they had with Spencer and Howard the night before.  Andy being the blabbermouth tattletale that he is of course told her every detail he could muster.  Judd told her the basic jist of the conversation. He told her what Howard was pitching and that they had fake aligned but that he was of course still on board to get Howard out.  What he DIDN'T say to Amanda was that they were pitching for him to vote out Amanda and all the reasons they listed for him to do so.

After the veto ceremony Amanda ran to McCrae to tell him that Judd had LIED to her because he didn't tell her all the details that Andy did.  She told him that she was going to chill out and give him the chance to tell her the truth again but that she didn't think he would do it.  McCrae told her to stop talking game and lay low so that she doesn't turn the house on her with her paranoia.  Amanda then ran upstairs and in front of everyone asked Judd to come have a talk with her.  She basically asked him "isn't there anything else you want to tell me about the conversation you had with Howard and Spencer.  Judd told her that he had not wanted her to worry because she was already on the block, but that they HAD in fact pitched reasons for them to vote her to.  He told her it was a stupid deal though and that there was no way he would take it or turn on them.  Then he went to go take a nap.

Amanda took this information and ran to Helen and started crying to her that Judd was flipping the whole house and that he was so against her and trying to rally up votes.  Helen then ran into the HOH room and told Aaryn that they needed to have a meeting NOW because Judd was flipping and not to listen to ANYTHING he had to say.  Amanda ran to GinaMarie to ask her if Judd had tried to flip her yet and she told Amanda that he had done the opposite and told her NOT to flip...but Amanda still said he was flipping.  Somehow they all ended up down in the cockpit together talking about how Judd was supposedly rallying votes to get Amanda out. This is of course stupid and untrue.  Not only is Judd doing NOTHING of the sort, but even if he did it wouldn't matter because no one else in the house has enough brains to take a stab at getting Amanda out of the house.  McCrae and Andy both told Amanda to chill out more and to STOP talking game. Just to have fun and lay low and get zero votes.  Then they both went to take naps as did Spencer.

While all the boys were sleeping, Amanda made her way up to the HOH room (and the HOH bed of course) to talk to Helen, Aaryn, GinaMarie about this whole Judd flipping thing. They bashed Judd for HOURS and talked about how shady he is and how he is a genius who is just trying to play some "innocent farm boy".  They talked about how he is just playing for jury votes and that's why he wants Jessie in the house right now. 

 

Amanda told Helen that he wants her gone because she would be a vote for one of them instead of him.  She told the whole room that he had made up tons of lies about fake alliances and things Kaitlin supposedly said just so he could get her out because she might vote for Andy in jury instead of him.   THEN it really happened.  Amanda decided that Judd was MVP.  At t his point in time, Judd and Spencer had awoken from their naps and were casually chatting on the outside couch about nothing in particular thinking that the rest of the house was asleep.

Amanda, with Helen now very much in on it too, continued talking about the MVP thing with Aaryn.  They decided that Judd had nominated Elissa to throw people off and then nominated GinaMarie because he wanted to nominate her to begin with and also because he knew she would stay and Kaitlin would go.  They decided that this week he had nominated Amanda because he knew that no one would think it was him if he nominated her, but that she wasn't the target at all.  He nominated her to frame Howard because HE was actually the one that wanted Howard out of the hose so badly...not Amanda.  For those of you that have been keeping up, you know that Amanda has not stopped talking abort wanting Howard out for at least 3 weeks now.  There is also the part of this that makes no sense because Amanda keeps saying Judd is rallying votes against her, but also saying he doesn't want her out this week, but he nominated her to get frame Howard and get Howard out.  Go figure...   In any case, Judd and Spencer remained happily oblivious downstairs, while in the HOH the girls chip chomped away at Judd's new fate.

 

 

Eventually people in the house started to wake up and Amanda and Helen pounced right away.  Amanda  grabbed Andy and pulled him into the cockpit to tell him all about how she had figured out that Judd was MVP, an evil genius, playing them all, playing for jury, and trying to get her out (while he was sleeping).  Andy bought it hook line and sinker of course, because this seems to be the Jonestown series of Big Brother.  Whatever Helen and Amanda say is just the way it is and you don't dare question it or think for yourselves, because if you do, you end up like Nick, Howard, Spencer, Candice and possibly Judd at this point.  In other words, you end up either evicted or on the outside looking in while you are on the eviction list.  You just shut up and drink your Koolaid like a good cult member.  While Amanda was telling Andy exactly what to think and how to act, Helen pulled Elissa into the backyard to do the same thing.  This particular conversation was even MORE mind blowing since not only was it about how terrible Judd is, but it was also about how they (including Elissa) really like Aaryn now and think that Candice basically made the whole thing up about the bed flipping since they have now seen how Aaryn "really is" and they really like her.  WHAT PLANET AM I ON RIGHT NOW?!  Again... Drinking the Koolaid.

 

 

All this paranoia swam in circles for a while as people switched places and Amanda talked more to GinaMarie and Jessie, and Helen told Andy everything she thought Amanda had not told him yet.  Amanda had some sort of brief illness from eating Ramen and talked to Judd to make sure he was still solid on keeping her.  He said he was, but that seemed to fuel her paranoia even more.  She said all the pain was keeping her from being able to walk, but somehow she made it up the the HOH bathroom to continue to talk shit about Judd while hunched over.  Meanwhile, McCrae slept...

 

 

eventually when everyone started to wake up it was impossible to have these one on one private conversations as much and so everyone started to mingle and things started to die down and just get boring.  Howard had a really good conversation with GinaMarie in the Hammock.  Spencer had a conversation with her as well, but that one really wasn't that good, and Spencer really has no understanding of how to come across about people he doesn't like in an acceptable fashion, so I won't recount his tale.  Howard told GinaMarie that with Helen and Amanda running the house with McCrae and Elissa at their sides, things were boring, and that if the rest of the people thought they were not going to get picked off in the process they were crazy.  He talked to her about how she knows she is just a vote right now while they decide when they want to send her home and if they want to let her make it to jury.  GinaMarie agreed with him and they talked a bit about Amanda and the fact that she had orchestrated the evictions of most of her allies in the house.  If I had to guess what GM was really thinking by that conversation, I would say that she actually wishes she could vote out Amanda, but knows she doesn't have the numbers or a way to do it.  I AM however wishing that since Judd kept her safe last week, she would tell him what all the girls have been saying about him so that he can decide what to do with it since he is now a target rather than an alliance member. 

 

 

For a little while after this there was a really boring lull where people were either napping, or eating, or just sitting at the hot tub, but we all know when Amanda decides she has a new target, she is like a dog with a bone.  She worked on this Howard thing for 3 weeks before she got her way and now that he is walking out her eyes are set on her new target, so she returned to the HOH bed to talk MORE about Judd with McCrae.

 

 

The conversation really wound up when Andy came in and started feeding the paranoia.  McCrae tried to say once or twice that they didn't know for sure that Judd had flipped, but Amanda and Andy freaked out and told him to "COME ON!! All the signs are there! It's SO obvious!!".  Their proof now is that Judd had a conversation with Andy asking him if he considered what Spencer and Howard were saying about voting Amanda out.  His actual intention was to make sure Andy wasn't considering it, but somehow now that Amanda has run with it, that PROVES that he is out to get her. He was implying they should take the deal...sigh...

 

 

Meanwhile on the couches outside, still unaware of the goings on of the rest of the house, Judd hit the mid-week slop funk.

 

 

Amanda ended her conversation with McCrae, Andy, and Aaryn by saying "It's done! He lied about Kaitlin so it's DONE! It's over.".  So as of now, Judd is the target, and Aaryn is the replacement member of the "Goof Troop" alliance.

After that conversaton the game talk mostly died down and the rest of the night has been just silliness and bored playing around.  They are still awake, but winding down quickly.

I wish I could tell you that something else happened in the house, but it didn't. I wasn't kidding when I said they talked about this ALL DAY LONG. I'm sad about it. I like Judd and would like to see him go far in the game.  I am hoping that he either realizes what is going on and makes a new plan, or someone else realizes what is really going on and stops the paranoia and ridiculousness.  If Amanda's paranoia doesn't do her in this week (which I don't think it will. They are all drunk on the Koolaid and HOH chips), Judd might be toast next week.  As of now Howard is still going and I don't see that changing. There are still several more days for people to freak out though.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more live feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

Gamer, Winner, or Both?

Here at the BBG Newbie Desk, I endeavor always to come clean about how my biases affect my views. I prefer to live and work in uncluttered environments, for example, and I am more apt to open up to somebody who demonstrates similar mannerisms. I am inspired by those who naturally prioritize the people they care about before themselves. I tend to assume, perhaps naïvely, that each person is inherently good until she or he proves otherwise.

My earliest viewing of #BB15 was during a few evenings while Judd was Head of Household (HOH). The first time that I tuned into the live feeds during a morning, "The Helen Show" was on. It was Sunday, July 21 ... and for more than three hours starting at about 6:45a, Helen had the house to herself. Nobody else was awake. Apparently during a Power of Veto (POV) competition the day before, Helen caught a random "punishment" of an 8:00p curfew. She had to sequester herself from all other house guests; bathroom breaks were permitted but she couldn't talk with anybody. So Helen was well-rested and eager to start the next day.

It was Helen's activities that Sunday morning which I found to be both astonishing and endearing. Rather than adopting an attitude of "Big Brother punished me, so I'm gonna do whatever self-indulgent thing I want to right now, and I don't give a hoot about anybody else" -- and, be honest, who among us wouldn't consider doing exactly that -- Helen started cleaning up the messes everybody left around the place!

Exhibit one was the bathroom. Here's what Helen found (top photo) and then how she organized things (bottom):

The kitchen was exhibit two. Dirty dishes everywhere (top photo) and then dirty nothing anywhere (bottom):

Helen even bagged up the bathroom trash and windexed the kitchen mirrors:

Only after Helen had devoted two hours to cleaning did she take time for herself to make breakfast and go jogging:

I've also seen Helen cooking huge meals (spaghetti, something called "slop balls", etc.) for the entire house several times ... and only once did I see another house guest (Andy) actually thank her for it.

Even so, while catching up with some of what I missed during the first month of #BB15, I keep reading how people say Helen is too bossy and/or too much into delivering lectures even after her week as HOH was up.

But doesn't Helen's repeated selflessness earn the right to be fully engaged in conversations with other house guests, pushing whatever strategic agenda (whether of her design or someone else's) she wants? She takes care of her fellow house guests in ways they neither realize nor thank her for, so I don't see how her frequent cooking and cleaning could be interpreted as manipulative. We don't call Judd or Spencer or even Amanda "bossy" when they push their agendas.

Not, of course, that Helen has to "earn the right." It's a game, and she's playing it -- quite expertly, from my albeit not-yet-very-educated perspective. It's true that I might be biased for having not tuned into #BB15 until after Helen's HOH week. Perhaps you have more reasons to dislike her than to root for her. I can respect that, but I'm in a different place.

The true measure of a person is found in what she or he does when nobody is watching. (In this equation, Internet viewers don't count.) Whether Helen is enough of a gamer to last longer than everybody else in the #BB15 house remains to be seen. But in my book, Helen is already a winner.

Are you already on Team Helen? Or if not, why not? Comments welcome below or find me @uselesstraffic.

Next from the Newbie Desk: What do you do when the only thing you don't want to have happen happens?

The Night Owl

First off, a HUGE congrats to my favorite feed entertainment, Judd, for winning HOH tonight!!! I'm really excited for him!!

 

 

Unfortunately, for Judd to do what he wants this week he will have many people to overcome.  Directly after the live show the feeds came back to Amanda already bossing him around about how much she wants Howard out.  Jessie dared to suggest a different idea like maybe Kaitlin or Aaryn leaving, and Amanda immediately jumped down her throat.  She said everything she possibly could to Judd and everyone else about how "dangerous" Howard is and how important it is to backdoor him this week.

 

 

A little while later Judd got his HOH room and Helen and Elissa's butts remained firmly in place in the HOH bed cockblocking any game talk that could possibly take place by other people coming in and out of the room.  Spencer was able to grab a few precious moments with Judd in which he told Spencer "This is MY HOH and I'm not listening to what someone else tells me to do. I'm not putting you up no matter what. I would like to see a girl leave this week.".  Judd told Elissa and Spencer both that he would prefer to nominate Kaitlin and GinaMarie with GinaMarie being a pawn.  He stated that while Aaryn is a bad person and certainly not fun to be around, Kaitlin wins comps and comes very close to winning the ones she loses.  She is also very social and sweet when she wants to be, making her a bigger threat.  He said he would like to see Kaitlin voted out.

Elissa then pulled Judd aside and told him that she didn't like the idea of sending Kaitlin out and wanted to use "her" MVP to put Aaryn up with Aaryn to go OR to backdoor Spencer or Howard.  We of course know that Elissa will not get MVP this week because we are the ones making the third nomination.  However, the nomination will be the same as if Elissa were HOH, as I am positive Aaryn will be the one nominated. Judd finally gave in and told Elissa that if they had the chance to backdoor a bigger target they could definitely do that, but I believe he was just telling her what she wanted to hear.

 

 

Shortly after this conversation, there was a booze delivery and it was time for the Have-nots to eat.  For a little while everyone happily stuffed their faces and drank their alcohol while Helen droned on and on about being a mom.  She told pregnancy stories that no one cared about, but that was okay since everyone was getting to eat and celebrate.

 

 

During the Have-not feast, Judd found a minute to pull Jessie aside and ask her what she was thinking.  Jessie has been growing on me more and more lately.  In a true statement of how much smarter she is than I originally thought, she told Judd he needs to do what HE wants to do and not let Amanda and McCrae try to force him to get blood on his hands for them.  She told him that if Amanda wanted someone out, let her win HOH and do it.  They both agreed that they do not want a guy going home this week as 3 guys have left already.  Judd told her that he thinks he is going to put up Kaitlin and GinaMarie hoping for Kaitlin to go.

 

 

After his talk with Jessie, Judd tried to pull Aaryn up to his HOH room to let her know that she may be put up by the MVP, but that he was not planning to put her up himself, However, like maggots on dead meat, the troops immediately swarmed the HOH room.  Helen, Andy, Elissa, and Amanda were quite determined to stay in the HOH and eat and talk all night, so Judd resorted to talking game in the have not room.  He told Aaryn he was pretty sure Elissa was going to put her up, but that if he won veto he would likely take her down depending on whether the house would work with him or not and whether Elissa as MVP would work with him or not.  He said that if Elissa was against him and not willing to work with him he might as well just backdoor her instead.  This could be interesting since Elissa won't be getting MVP, but I think the HGs will think she is just lying about not having it.

 

 

A little while later up in the HOH room, Helen decided to give Judd a speech and demonstration on how to be HOH.  She literally gave him a tour of the bathroom and taught him how to feed the fish. I'm not kidding you guys. I can't make this stuff up. She ACTUALLY lectured him on how to HOH.  She then firmly planted her butt on the couch where she fell asleep trying to wait out the others in the room.  Eventually she FINALLY went back downstairs.

 

 

Not to be outdone, once the others started filing out of the HOH room, Elissa started asking Judd if she could sleep on the couch in the HOH instead of the bed everyone had opened up for her downstairs.  She claimed all kinds of reasons such as being a germaphobe etc..  but none of them really made sense. He said she could sleep there if BB would allow her to, but the consensus of the others in the room was that it had been tried before by Aaryn and that BB would not allow it.  She tried it anyway, until BB called her out and made her go downstairs.

Judd eventually got the chance to talk to Howard and Spencer alone.  They both just told him that he should do what is best for his game and not listen to what other people are telling him to do.  Neither tried to make any deals. They just told him that they were willing to have his back if he would have theirs.

While Judd was talking to Howard and Spencer, in the cockpit, Amanda, Andy, and McCrae were talking about how they now see the "Rachel" coming out in Elissa and all agreed that she is freaking them out and needs to go soon.  Amanda still wants Howard out this week and is attempting to make that happen, but she wants Elissa to go soon now.

 

 

Elissa snuck into where Helen was sleeping and the two of them droned on and on and on and on and on about how they HAVE to make it so that Howard or Spencer goes home.  They think Judd is "SO DUMB" for putting up the people he wants to put up.  They want to protect GinaMarie and Kaitlin and make sure that Howard or Spencer goes.  Elissa then said if she couldn't get one of the boys out it HAS to be Aaryn. I wonder how she will react when she ISN'T MVP this week...

Currently everyone is still awake, but not really game talking.  Judd is a little drunkenly (6 Coronas in) talking to Aaryn about how the MVP twist has made people bigger floaters than ever instead of extinguishing them.  He says now they just float to the MVP power.  He is right of course. 

 

 

Everyone is kind of winding down, and I don't expect much more to happen, so I'm going to wrap the blog up here.  Judd seems to be determined to do his own thing and not listen to other people. I am proud of him. I fully expect to see GinaMarie and Kaitlin nominated later today.  The Have-Not competition should come sometime early this morning. 

I'm excited about this week.  I thought it would be another long boring "Aaryn is the target and she is going" kind of week, just like last week with Jeremy.  That doesn't seem to be the case though.  The HOH wants different people out than the rest of the house, and no one is getting MVP.  The MVP vote will be America's, but the house and HOH are not really on board to vote out their nomination.  This could get very interesting. 

In recent minutes, Judd has really started heading towards GinaMarie possibly being his target because he just can't take anymore of the Nick talk and she doesn't want to be there.  I think this could just be drunk talk though.  I doubt GinaMarie will go over Kaitlin or Aaryn. 

Anyway, this could be an exciting week *fingers crossed*.  As always you can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...
