Double Eviction #2 Episode Guide

Double your (dis)pleasure? Amanda and Elissa, the most hated, loved, and/or controversial remaining house guests (each of you likely attaches varying labels to each), might both be leaving tonight.

Here's how things might happen during #BB15's second double eviction episode:

- Recaps.

- The eviction ceremony. GinaMarie, who happened to be HOH back when we headed into #BB15's previous double (putting Candice and Jessie on the block that week), nominated showmance power couple Amanda and McCrae for tonight's eviction in perhaps the biggest move of the season. (Like her as a person or not, and I certainly don't, I give her propz for doing what the previous two HOHs wouldn't.) McCrae won veto to save himself, and GM replaced him with Spencer as a pawn. Despite recent buddying with Elissa and the usual fake assurances from Andy, Amanda should be on her way to the jury house. If there's a 2-2 tie in the voting, GM will evict Amanda.

- Julie interviews the evicted house guest.

Amanda (top left) still thinks she's safe, but GinaMarie (top right) as HOH has conspired to keep her in the dark. Andy & Judd (bottom left) will probably be safe in tonight's double. Elissa must win HOH or POV.- New HOH competition. (As outgoing HOH, GinaMarie must sit this one out.)

- Nomination ceremony of two HGs by the new HOH. If Elissa or McCrae win HOH, she or he will likely nominate the other (plus one of "The Exterminators" alliance: Judd, GinaMarie, Spencer, or Andy).  If neither win HOH, Elissa and McCrae might both go on the block.

- POV competition. We think winning veto will be essential to either Elissa or McCrae.

- POV ceremony. One nominee comes off the block and another one goes up.

- Eviction ceremony #2. If Elissa is still up, current thinking is that she'll be on the way to the jury house.

- Julie interviews the double-evictee.

Next from the Newbie Desk: The next HOH competition might begin before or after tonight's live episode ends -- and it's likely to be a shorter-than-usual reign for this head of household. I'll tell you why in my next post.

Amanda's a goner for sure, but do you agree Elissa is the next most likely to go? If Elissa or McCrae wins HOH, which Exterminator(s) will s/he nominate? Share your thoughts in the comments or tweet @uselesstraffic.

Countdown to Meltdown

Amanda and McCrae are going on the chopping block soon and they don't even know it's coming.

This afternoon (Friday), Spencer and Andy have been feigning annoyance to Amanda about GinaMarie not being willing to talk with them ... and talking down about Elissa to stay in Amanda's good graces.

Amanda & McCrae mope. GinaMarie preps for her second HOH nomination ceremony.GinaMarie and Elissa have been plotting what could or should happen if the surviving half of McCranda doesn't win the next HOH comp -- while Amanda worries from downstairs what they're talking about.

Of the remaining four players (not counting McCrae), I've been wondering who Amanda could turn to for comfort or potential allegiance in the aftermath of the nominations.

Andy tried to come in while Elissa was talking with GM -- and Elissa asked him to wait outside.Not Judd. Amanda arranged his first eviction and wasn't cheery about his return. And she wants GM to put him up with Elissa.

Not Elissa, who Amanda targetted with her yelling and horn-blowing only days ago and who holds onto remnants of last week's HOH power.

Not Spencer. I could be forgetting (it's still difficult for a newbie to remember who allied with whom over all these weeks) ... but I don't seem to remember Amanda and Spencer having any particular closeness.

Andy? As one of the members of their 3AM alliance, possibly. But Amanda doesn't know that he is conspiring with GinaMarie and the others to get her out.

Friday, 3:05p: "If you put up Elissa and Judd, I will voluntarily go up as a pawn," says Amanda to GM.One thing is certain: The live feeds are going to be very fun to watch after the nomination ceremony tonight!

How big of a meltdown will Amanda have? Is there anything she could say to sway votes her way? Share your thoughts here or @uselesstraffic.

Anybody Who Isn't McCranda

GinaMarie remains mean-spirited and disturbing. But she won HOH again on Thursday evening ... and if she puts Amanda and McCrae on the block, GinaMarie will have earned some respect back from me.

Amanda certainly wasted no time trying to fill GM's head with final four promises, lies of her certainty that Judd had been MVP, and her fervent desire for Elissa and Judd to be nominated for eviction.

Thursday, August 29, 2013, 8:57 PM: Mark this time, #BB15 fans! Is it genuinely the beginning of the end of McCranda?

My personal hope was for anybody who isn't McCrae or Amanda to win HOH, but I was probably wishing for GM be least likely to get the room key. Would she be strong enough to make one of the biggest moves of the season, or would she fear retaliation?

On the other hand, they've done the math: There are only so many weeks left, and during their conversation GM and Amanda talked about how two people are likely to leave next week. (They're right: Julie told viewers #BB15's second double-eviction happens next Thursday night.) Does the coming double affect GM's game play for the week? 

Accidental opposites: GM is blonde & wearing pink over black. Amanda is brunette & wearing black over pink.

GM ... Did you really do it? Did you successfully play Amanda? Does she really believe you're gonna do what she wants you to?

For the moment, it looks like she did! The moment she left the room, GM started silently taunting Amanda. And minutes later, GM talked with Andy about nominating McCranda.

We'll see exactly how impressionable GM lets herself be as everybody kisses her ring on Friday ... and then whether she has the guts to go through with nominating Amanda and McCrae later Friday. The other house guests seem to want it.

So now I'm rooting for somebody I don't like at all. That too is part of the game.

Will GM do it? Can Amanda win POV again to save herself? And then who's gonna be the double evictee next week? Let our games begin in the comments or @uselesstraffic.

Chaos Theory

McCrae is off the block, Andy is the replacement nominee, Aaryn is still up, and I am surprisingly not entirely disappointed with how this week is going.

When Amanda got into the POV comp and won, she was obviously going to save McCrae ... and it also became impossible for Elissa to backdoor her. And there went all the fun out of my #BB15 week ... or so I thought.

But watching Amanda squirm over her lack of control of Elissa has been kind of fun. Watching Amanda campaign in one room to save Aaryn while McCrae campaigned in a different room to vote her out was delicious! And Amanda wanted GinaMarie put up as the replacement ... so the fact that Elissa chose Andy instead is downright exhilarating.

Admittedly, I like it more because it's not what Amanda wanted than because I want to see Andy go before GM. On the other hand, Andy's duplicitous game style is annoying ... even though he seems like he'd be a likable person in the real world. As a newbie, I haven't quite reconciled that it should be acceptable for me to cheer for deceit -- it's just a game.

Monday, August 26, 2:48p on cams 1 & 2: Andy and Aaryn admitted privately to each other that Elissa played them expertly.Three votes are all they need to evict someone this week.

Earlier in the day today (Monday), it seemed likely that Judd and Spencer would evict Aaryn ... while Amanda and possibly McCrae (put firmly back in his place, one assumes) would evict Andy. GinaMarie might have been the swing vote.

But by late afternoon, with her "save me" tactics not working, Aaryn seemed to know she's going. If that becomes a foregone conclusion (like Helen this time last week), which is more likely this Thursday?

- We get a 5-0 vote to evict Aaryn, providing cover for everybody ("I'm just doing what the house wants!") and dullness for fans.

- We get a 3-2 or 4-1 vote to evict Aaryn, with the dissenting votes from, say, McCranda or just McCrae. I might like to see how this would play out -- especially if one or both of them chose to lie about their votes to each other and/or to other house guests. Imagine McCrae saying, "Amanda, you know I'll always vote with you" when he didn't ... or Amanda saying that GinaMarie or Judd (take your pick) "was the only one who didn't do what the house wanted" when in fact they did.

I'm learning what it is that I really want from Big Brother: chaos.
