The Night Owl

McCrae won the veto!  The HGs competed in some kind of BB Bowling veto that involved spinning around a lot and throwing bowling balls.  They also got beer.  And McCrae won.  My hope was that he would be super excited about winning and staying in the game and that he would start trying to fit back in with people and save himself, but so far that hasn't happened at all.  For the most part he has been campaigning for Amanda and trying to help her campaign for herself.

For a good while after the veto, McCrae and Amanda both went in between napping and campaigning, but their campaigning mostly consisted of the same old tired arguments "Judd is bad"  "Elissa is bad"  "Keep us and we will be loyal till the end" and a lot of other things that still don't change the fact that they are an overt couple working as a pair in the house. 

When Amanda and  McCrae were not around, the Exterminators alliance decided it would probably be best to put Spencer up instead of Elissa so Elissa does not end up pissed off at them and they all know they will still vote out Amanda.  GinaMarie said that it wouldn't matter if Elissa convinced her that she had sex with Nick, she STILL wouldn't put her up against Amanda because they need Amanda to go.

Other than the campaigning, most of the afternoon was slow and most everyone was either tired out or drunk after the veto and many slept for quite a while.  When everyone started waking up again the house was on indoor lockdown because of a wedding playing loud music in the backyard.  They got  more alcohol and decided to play poker games.   Poker is always pretty dull for most of us watching, with the most interesting part of tonight's rounds being Andy losing and ending up in one of GinaMarie's outfits.

Andy and Judd had some short discussions here and there about how to proceed in the coming week if it's a double eviction (which it is).  They both feel it will be best if one of them wins to put up either McCrae against one of them and then if anyone wins veto put up Elissa, or put up Elissa against one of them and if someone comes off put up McCrae.  That way they only piss off both McCrae and Elissa if they have to, and one of them definitely goes home since their alliance will still control the votes.

Other than that it's been a super slow night and it's been FILLED with constant feed cuts every few seconds as Elissa and Amanda don't seem to be capable of going a full minute without singing or mentioning production once they have had a little alcohol.  So that's pretty much it. There is not much more to tell.

I'm happy with the veto results.  I'm excited to (hopefully) see Amanda walk out the door this week, and I would be even happier if Elissa followed right after her in the double eviction. Alternately, if McCrae doesn't actually start playing this week, I would be fine with him going too.  I'm sad that he made the choices he did in the game as I felt he had SO much potential to be a graet player when he came in. That's just my personal opinions/desires.  I expect to see Spencer or possibly Andy or Judd on the block next to Amanda on Monday, but none of them will be in danger of going home or getting voted out.   In between now and Thursday we should see a lot of ups and downs from Amanda as she swings between acceptance and campaigning.  Maybe she will make one last loud bang, or maybe she will just stay in bed all day, I don't really care either way.  As always, you guys can follow me @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Well, GinaMarie did it.  Amanda and McCrae were put up on the block together today and the aftermath went just about the way most of us expected it to go.  First Amanda and McCrae ran to their bed to go talk about whose fault it was (Judd and Elissa of course) then Amanda marched to the HOH room.  Upon arriving in the HOH room, Amanda yelled at GinaMarie and told her that they were never coming after her and genuinely wanted to take her to the final four.  Amanda told her over and over and over and over that it didn't make sense to put the two of them up together.  GinaMarie kept her cool and told Amanda that it DID in fact make sense.  She told her they were a power duo and a couple. Two people playing the game together.  She told her she felt that this would make it a more even playing field to separate the two of them so they are not playing for each other. Amanda then told GinaMarie "You just fucked your own game.  You just fucked up! if Spencer or Andy win veto they will take one of us off the block and then whoever the replacement nominee is will go home!"  That sparked a fire in Judd who spoke up and said "So I guess we should all just pack our bags then and push you both to the end?"  Amanda hurled a few more insults and then ran downstairs to the have not room to cry and tell McCrae how she doesn't even want to be there anymore and how she can't live with these people.  She just wants to leave now!  She can't stand the idea of being apart from him (for two weeks).  etc.. etc... etc..

There was some more time spent in bed and then Amanda went off to find Andy in the storage room who she still believes is on her side and will take her off the block if he winse veto.  She started crying and talking about Elissa saying she couldn't stand to spend another week in the house with her "joker face" etc..  and Andy mosty just said "yeah, but don't give her what she wants.  Just try to squash it."  While they were talking, Elissa listened outside the door until Amanda got wise to her listening and tried to bust the door open on her.

Most of the rest of Amanda and McCrae's night was spent not saying anything other than comforting words to each other in their bed.  There was also a lot of laying in silence.  The only thing they did outside of that was go to the bathroom once, eat once, and Amanda went up to the HOH room crying and apologized to Judd, Elissa, Spencer, and GinaMarie saying she knows she is leaving and she loves all of them.  She asked them not to blame her actions on McCrae who so wants to be there.  The two of them still have no idea that McCrae is the target. They just assume that Amanda is the one going home...but really, they just laid in bed all night for the most part.  I was starting to think mirrors  might be needed to check for breath, but in the wee hours of the morning they popped up for a short but relatively normal chat/joke talk with Spencer, Andy, and Judd.

After the storage room event, Andy started to get really spooked about the idea of Elissa sending him out of the house after she started needling him about what he said to Amanda and why.  She acted suspicious and Andy talked to Spencer about it a while later.  He and Spencer agreed that if one of them got HOH they might need to put Elissa up next to one of their own alliance so they could get rid of her first and then just deal with Amanda next.  I'm not sure if Andy is still on that same page though as after some booze later on in the night, he and Elissa had a really long heart to heart and agreed that they totally trust each other.  I am sure he still wants her out, but I'm not sure if he wants her gone next or if his fears were eased.

While McCrae and Amanda laid in bed together, the other HGs drank, played Jenga, ate dinner, and cut up with each other.  They started calling Judd the "Slutty Chicken" because his chicken costume is now so ripped it won't stay on.  They teased GinaMarie about how broken she is now that her toe is broken along with her hurt back and finger.  And the night for the most part was relatively strategy talk free.

There WAS a little bit of gaming for a while between Spencer, Judd, and Andy in the cockpit.  Most of it was just going over what they already have about doing what they need to do in order to win veto and send McCrae  home, but a few new things popped up here and there. They decided that if McCrae or Amanda does win veto and come off the block, it would be a good idea for Spencer to be the replacement nominee so they can just vote out whichever of the two is left up and not piss Elissa off yet.  That way Elissa stays focused on getting out the other member of McCranda instead of getting mad at all of them for putting her up and coming after two members of The Exterminators.

That's pretty much it as far as the game talk went.  Now it's all up to vet and what happens after that.  Part of me kind of hopes that McCrae wins veto so that Amanda goes home instead, but that is from a personal standpoint as I do like McCrae more than her.  From a strategy point of view, it is better for Judd, GinaMarie, Spencer, and Andy to get rid of McCrae and leave Amanda begging to go to jury right after him.  After seeing the way Amanda acted today about the game and her worries about being on the block, I honestly think she may use the veto on McCrae if she wins it.  She is extremely worried about him going to jury first and being there with Jessie and Aaryn.

Either way, even if neither of them wins it, it should be an interesting day.  If Andy somehow accidentally wins it, he knows he is screwed.  He won't be able to use it because of the current alliance he is loyal to, but that could potentially turn Amanda on him and keep her from going after Elissa.  Anyone else who won will likely just be subjected to bartering by Amanda and McCrae to use it, but likely won't.  We shall just have to see how it plays out.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

GinaMarie is the new HOH!! But that almost seems inconsequential compared to everything else that has happened since then.  When the feeds came back after the HOH comp tonight Amanda was already in GinaMarie's ear telling her that she just HAS to put up Elissa and Judd.  GinaMarie did a good job of skirting her demands though and pretended to go along with her to an extent, but gave us plenty of eye rolls and other expressions into the camera when Amanda was not looking. 

Shortly after GinaMarie got away from Amanda, the Exterminator alliance celebrated in the storage room since they are now able to go through with their plan of keeping themselves safe this week and putting up Amanda and McCrae together.  After their small celebration it was time for Judd and Spencer to get their chicken costumes they won for being last in the HOH competition.

After the chicken costumes were revealed, GinaMarie was called to the DR to have her diary room session before the reveal of her HOH room.  While she was in there, all hell broke loose again between Elissa and Amanda.  Amanda technically started it this time by going into the house and calling Elissa a liar and basically following her around jabbing at her for various reasons.  I think this was mostly spawned because Amanda was so angry about Elissa's answer to Julie's question about their fight on the live show.  It didn't matter that Amanda started it though, Elissa gave as good as she got for the most part.  For the ENTIRE night, each time those 2 were anywhere near each other it turned into a poke and jab fest.  Elissa would talk about how much she "misses Aaryn" just to get Amanda riled up, and Amanda would go after Elissa being a mom blah blah blah...  There really isn't any point in me giving specifics of what they said when and where because we have all seen every comment over and over again this past week.

Meanwhile everyone else just tried to stay out of it and tried to avoid taking a side when Elissa or Amanda would come to them expecting them to side with them.  That is of course with the exception of McCrae who was on Amanda's side.  He did do a good bit of yelling at her to try to shut her up tonight though.  Judd and Andy had a discussion about how Amanda is driving them up the wall with antagonizing Elissa and then playing the victim and crying about it, but they both agreed that McCrae is probably the bigger threat and the one that will likely need to go this week if he doesn't win veto.

After the first real round of low blows, it was time for GinaMarie to get her HOH room.  She got pictures of Nick, a letter from her mom and step dad, and the usual goodies in her HOH basket.  Most everyone was happy for GM except for Amanda and Elissa who were too busy taking shots at each other, and then the stand off began.  Everywhere GinaMarie would go, Elissa would be 2 feet behind her, and 2 feet behind HER would be Amanda.  They eventually ended up in one of the most awkward HOH wait out fests I've ever seen.

For the record, neither Amanda nor Elissa won the wait it out contest. GinaMarie decided to leave the HOH first and go downstairs and while Elissa went to bed and Amanda was busy crying to McCrae outside about how Elissa "bullies" her and how tortured she is and how Elissa tortured Aaryn and how it's not fair, Judd, Andy, and Spencer made their way up to the HOH room with GinaMarie to have a small exterminators meeting and make sure they were all on the same page.

GinaMarie told them she was definitely putting up Amanda and McCrae, and they all agreed that they would like to get McCrae out this week if possible since he is the stronger competitor of the two.  There is also the fact that Amanda would really go off the deep end and just be a flailing loose cannon who probably would not be able to play very well if McCrae walks out the door.  They also all suspect a double eviction is coming this week, so they think even worse case scenario for them is Amanda or Elissa getting HOH, but they would still likely put each other on the block next to one of the Exterminators, and they can just vote out either Amanda or Elissa depending on which one is on the block.  They also all agree they will do whatever it takes to win veto to keep McCrae from coming down and keep GinaMarie from having to nominate Elissa and piss her off. 

While the meeting went on upstairs, Amanda sat downstairs still crying and bitching to McCrae about Elissa.  She really seems to have no idea whatsoever at this point that she and McCrae are going on the block.  Kudos to GinaMarie for her poker face, because Amanda truly believes that Elissa and Judd are going up.

After a while GinaMarie came outside and spoke with Amanda, McCrae and Andy.  Amanda tried to make a fake final 4 deal with them, and GinaMarie played it off as if she bought it.  Amanda then started asking again about who would be going up next to Elissa.  She wants Judd, but said that between Judd and Spencer she does not care which one goes up as long as it's Elissa.  GinaMarie played it off again and told them not to worry, that she sees what Elissa is doing by following her around etc..  And she isn't going to listen to her.

Everyone is kind of winding down and going to bed now.  I don't see anything else big happening tonight.  I personally am really excited about this week.  I think tomorrow's nominations are going to be a total blindside (possibly a first for this year) because Amanda and McCrae don't seem to have any idea at all that GinaMarie might put them up together, and they certainly have no idea that Spencer, Judd, Andy, and GM are working together.  There should be plenty of fireworks when they go up.  I'm excited for Judd that he has managed another week of safety provided he makes it through the double eviction this coming Thursday (and I think he has a good shot this time).  I'm happy about Andy's game and the way it is going.  He is breaking away from Amanda and McCrae at the perfect time for him.  They helped him get pretty far while he helped them also up to this point, but now he knows he has to play against people who are not coupled up and powerful, and he is easing into his new alliance very well.  I know people hate Andy for playing both sides, and I constantly get the "Andy is a rat and a snake and a floater" comments on twitter, but I feel that he is playing well and right now I am enjoying him.

I'm hoping GinaMarie tops her last nomination speech this week.  Her HOH's are always a little comical to me as she really is a cartoon parody of herself.  So here's to some great fireworks tomorrow afternoon when nominations happen.  Fire up your feeds and don't make any plans to go out or you might miss it.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Another crazy day and relatively uneventful night in the BB 15 house. 

Judd started out the morning talking to Elissa for a really long time about why he did not want to work with Amanda and McCrae and his feelings on them in general.  He explained to her why he thought that the two of them needed people to work with and could possibly work with Spencer and Andy and GinaMarie so that they are not alone going into this next week etc..   Everything he said made sense and for the most part of the conversation Elissa was cool, but she was of course still adamant about wanting to put up Andy instead of GinaMarie.  Judd told her to do what she wanted to do, but that he just wanted to do what was best for them.  Keep in mind that Judd thinks Amanda and McCrae are voting Andy out and that GinaMarie is the swing vote. 

After Judd came downstairs, shit was immediately stirred when Aaryn told Andy that she knew for a fact Judd was upstairs telling Elissa to put him on the block instead of GinaMarie (completely false obviously).  Andy asked Judd about it and told him that he believed him over Aaryn, and judd went off to confront Aaryn.  He basically just called her on her bullshit and then walked away.  I cannot rave enough about how much I love Judd 2.0 that does not give a shit what Aaryn or Amanda think of him. 

Things seemed like they might calm down for a little while and I kind of wasn't paying attention until all of the sudden Elissa and McCrae were arguing because Elissa thought McCrae and Amanda had gone through or touched her things and stolen some balls from a comp from her.  Elissa had apparently moved some of McCrae's clothes so they would all be in the same place instead of spread out in different drawers.  They went tit for tat for a few minutes with a few biting comments to each other and then literally fought to get to the DR first to be the first one to ask if other HGs were allowed to touch each others things.  No it's not daycare, guys, it's BB 15. 

Never one to be left out of a fight, Amanda of course came outside to put her 2 cents in and started first telling Elissa that she is a bad mom and saying that her husband is 75 years old.  She then told her that "She should have been a blowjob but got stuck in the wrong hole".  Things pretty much went nuts from there.  Elissa kept laughing and went inside, but Amanda had bigger plans for the day. 

Amanda was and is still determined to try to get GinaMarie on the block so that she can keep Aaryn for herself (when really she doesn't have the votes either way.  Andy and Spencer confirmed many times and even told McCrae today that they would have to keep GinaMarie and that Aaryn has to go.).  So, Amanda dressed herself in some kind of makeup to make herself look like "New Years Granny" and went around blowing horns in Elissa's ear, and screaming random things about hating her and America hating her etc.. for the rest of the day.  It was all rather amusing in my opinion if not a little watered down and weak in comparison to people who have done similar things in seasons past. GinaMarie's face in the following picture is just a happy accident. I don't know what was being said to her.

After hours of Amanda putting ketchup on pads and blowing horns, we got trivia, and when the feeds returned Amanda was talking about how she had been told she had to cool it for a while.  The details are unclear, but apparently BB told her she can't do anything that makes Elissa feel afraid or threatened.  Amanda spent a good portion of the rest of the night reading the BB rule book to find out what she was and wasn't allowed to do to Elissa.

None of what Amanda was trying to accomplish worked.  Her plan was to have Andy comfort Elissa and that way Elissa would think he wasn't working with her and wouldn't put him on the block.  Elissa was unphased in the way of nominations though and still intends to put Andy up.  She went a step further when she came outside to talk to Andy and Spencer, and Andy told her that GinaMarie had refused to commit her vote to keeping him.  Elissa called GinaMarie outside in front of them plus Judd and asked her if she put up Andy would GinaMarie vote how she wanted.  GinaMarie said she would, and Elissa said "that's all I needed to know" then went inside her HOH and locked the door and wouldn't let Andy in.

Andy and Spencer agreed later on in the night that since the whole "Amanda and McCrae will vote him out" thing is fake and he has the votes to stay, it is probably better for him to go on the block than GinaMarie, because that way they can get rid of Aaryn without having to fight Amanda about it.  Andy even shut Judd down who was still trying to help him by telling him that he didn't want him to get himself nominated, so to not bother pushing Elissa anymore with the idea of putting up GinaMarie and just let her nominate him. 

Amanda and McCrae are of course still planning on keeping Andy at this point even though Amanda pulled this elaborate scheme and acted liek they were voting him out, so a good bit of their planning with Andy tonight was how to deal with Judd because obviously Aaryn will run to him and tell him that the plan was all fake.  So the plan is that after Andy goes up for nomination tomorrow, McCrae will pull Judd aside and let him know that the plan was all to try to save Andy from the block, and that Andy didn't know about it, and they were not sure if they could trust Judd yet, so they just let him go along with it.  This way Andy's hands stay clean, and it (in Amanda and McCrae's mind anyway) will build some trust back between Judd and McCrae.

Judd spent a good portion of his night talking with Andy and Spencer about what could happen in the coming weeks and just having general chit chat with them.  They all agree that Amanda and McCrae need to be split up.  Andy has added that he may have to get rid of Elissa first though as he is afraid after she gets rid of Aaryn, he will be her next target.  When Judd walked away a few times, Andy and Spencer both agreed that they might want to get rid of Elissa this coming week and then split up McCrae and Amanda, and then GinaMarie if they have any control at all in the coming weeks.  This is good news for Judd if either of them get power, but we all know the likelihood of that.  And yes, I am still aware of Andy's flip flops between being loyal to Amanda vs being loyal to Judd and Spencer.  Right now I think it could go either way depending on who gets HOH this coming week.

After things had mostly settled down and all were in their beds except Andy, Spencer, and Judd, GinaMarie could hear Aaryn still laughing and whispering with Amanda.  Aaryn really has played this whole thing with GinaMarie very VERY badly.  She knows that GinaMarie hates Amanda, but has not even tried to not tattle everything GM says to Amanda and spends most of her time trying to crawl up Amanda's ass.  I guess it got to be too much for GM, because she got out of bed and marched outside to the hammock clearly annoyed.  Judd, Spencer, and Andy all went to talk to her and she ranted for a really long time about Aaryn and the way she is being treated by her.  She hates that Aaryn chooses Amanda over her all the time and that Aaryn pits her against every EXCEPT Aaryn.  She brought up a lot of things and it was a pretty fiery rant, but I thought it was amusing to watch to say the least.  I kind of like fired up GM.  Spencer, Judd, and Andy all assured her that even if she was the one to go up instead of Andy, they would all keep her and boot Aaryn anyway.  They told her that they wanted to work with her and Judd told her he was on the same page with her wanting to split up Amanda and McCrae by getting rid of Amanda. 

Where GinaMarie's vote lies at this point is a TOTAL mystery, which is unusual for me as a feed watcher.  I usually know because each person usually has someone you can tell they are being truthful with.  I can't tell with GM though.  She told Aaryn and Amanda that people are stupid if they think she would ever vote against Aaryn, but she has promised her vote to Andy and promised Elissa that she will vote Aaryn out as well.  So who knows.  In the end it will only matter if Amanda and McCrae actually flip and try to oust Andy instead of booting Aaryn, which I am doubting will happen, but never say never..

Things are mostly winding down now and I think everyone will be heading to their beds soon.  I expect to see Andy put on the block in place of McCrae at the veto ceremony this morning barring anything strange happening to make Elissa shift her crazy eyes to a different target.  I'm pretty sure she is dead set on Andy and there is no changing it though.  We will have to wait until close to Thursday to see if Amanda gets her paranoia good and revved up and decides to take a stab at getting rid of Andy (which I could totally see happening). 

As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Crazy, Crazy, CRAZY!!  They are ALL out of their minds and have been at it nonstop for most of the day and night.  I don't even know how to begin explaining all that happened, so I will just try to hit the high (and really low) points.

When I fired up the feeds today the veto comp was already underway.  When the feeds returned we learned that it was the Zingbot veto comp and that Amanda had won.  I think we were all kind of expecting that to happen.  No, I do NOT think it was rigged. I just think that in BB, typically if a lot of the HGs don't want someone to win, they usually do. IE Elissa winning HOH this past week. I think this year may see the end of the Zingbot comps, or maybe they will just start doing them at a different time in the season, because this one was as rough as last year.  Last year the person wearing the Zingbot costume had a heat-stroke and fainted.  This year Judd threw up and had to be put on oxygen, and some of the others required oxygen and medical attention because they couldn't breathe.  Heat is not a friend to the Zingbot comps.

One would THINK that winning veto and being able to keep both herself and McCrae safe would make Amanda happy, but ohh no, not until she is in complete control of every move made by the HOH can she rest.  Amanda does not want anyone but Judd or GinaMarie going up next to Aaryn on the block because she wants to be able to keep Aaryn.  Elissa wants/wanted to put Andy up because she felt that Amanda and McCrae would not vote Andy out in order to keep Aaryn (which is true).  Amanda created an elaborate scheme to fool people. She marched up to the HOH and told Elissa that she HOPES she puts up Andy because no one else will, and that she is keeping Aaryn no matter what and so will McCrae.  She told Elissa that everyone likes Andy so this is the perfect opportunity to vote Andy out.  Elissa remained mostly unaffected and jus tkind of made fun of Amanda saying that to her face.  After Amanda went back outside, Elissa came down and saw her sitting and talking game with Andy.  She asked her if she was telling Andy her latest scheme to vote him out.  THe truth is, Amanda was in fact telling Andy that  he needed to act like she told him she was going to vote him out.  (it's already confusing and I just started).

Anyway, Andy ran into the house and went in the cockpit and started fake crying to Elissa and telling her that Amanda said she was going to vote him out, but the only way to make sure Aaryn went home was to ptu up GinaMarie.  Elissa told Andy she wasn't sure if he was just faking and in on the scheme or not, but that she didn't want him to go home, she just wanted to assure that Aaryn went home.

A little while after this, many fireworks happened here and there between Amanda and Elissa.  Elissa while giggling told Amanda that she threw the competition to her to help her stay safe (in order to annoy her).  Her plan worked, and Amanda got all fired up and started yelling about how ridiculous it was for anyone to say that etc...  Then she told Elissa that she looked plastic and started insulting her husband and kids etc... as Amanda does.   Elissa brought up Amanda telling everyone she was pregnant during the sequester time before the show, and asked her why she would still come on the show after losing a baby and then immediately hookup with someone who wasn't her boyfriend the first week.   Blows like this were exchanged throughout the night for a while until they got booze and they went into their separate groups to talk trash about each other to other people.  Amanda strutted around wearing the veto necklace while doing this...I just couldn't leave that part out.

At some point Judd talked first to Andy and Elissa up in the HOH room about making sure that Andy stayed if he went up.  Elissa told everyone she was convinced that GinaMarie would be voting out Aaryn with everyone else, and Judd even said he would offer GM is $5k to vote against Aaryn.  Andy was still nervous about the idea of going on the block though and also still playing it up for the two of them, and exited the HOH in kind of a huff.  Judd then talked to GinaMarie downstairs in front of Andy and started asking her if she would vote Aaryn out.  GinaMarie was non-committal about it (because she will never vote against Aaryn).  GinaMarie had also had a LOOOONG mind bending chat with Amanda during all the fighting, and was starting to distance herself from Elissa a little.  She told Judd "I can't vote out my BB bunny"  when it was just the 2 of them, and that got Judd thinking. What he did not realize is that what he was thinking is exactly the plan that Amanda wanted.

Judd went to Andy and Spencer and asked them if they would vote out Aaryn and they both said they would and swore to it.  Judd said maybe Elissa SHOULD put up GinaMarie since that's the only vote they are not sure about.  He ran the idea by Elissa and told her why.  She asked Andy and Spencer about their votes if she put up GM, and made them swear by them, and they all had a really REALLY long talk about all working together to get Amanda out of the house in the upcoming week. Everything SEEMED to be right on track.

Judd went outside where Amanda, McCrae, and Aaryn were trahsing Elissa by the hot tub, and Amanda tried to get into it with Judd, with Aaryn jumping in like the good lapdog that she is.  Amanda kept pointing out "you hate me. I can tell.  I didn't do anything to you that everyone else in this house didn't do.  It was Helen and Elissa that wanted this for you"  blah blah blah blah blah.  Judd wouldn't take the bait and just kept telling her he didn't want to bring up old wounds, but he did mention that he saw the tape where she smiled really big when Aaryn nominated him.  Aaryn kept throwing in something about how he had used the term "BB Bunny" in a condescending way towards her (WHAT?!).  So help me, it was the dumbest thing she has said since "the most offensive thing you can do to a Texan is sit on their hat." 

While this half argument was going on, Andy and Spencer talked to each other in the cockpit alone for a few minutes.  They agreed that they really DO want Aaryn gone this week and that they were just going to have to tell Amanda "Look, we are voting her out and that's just how it is."  Andy also told Spencer that truthfully he is leaning more towards working with Judd and Elissa than with Amanda and McCrae, and that if he got HOH he thinks he would have to put Amanda and McCrae up so they could get Amanda  out of the house, because it is time to cut her loose. They both agreed that even though they had been scared about Judd coming back in the house, they both feel now that it's the best thing that could have happened, and perfect timing for going after Amanda.

Judd went and talked to GinaMarie a little bit and told her he didn't know if she would go up or not, but that if she did, for her not to worry because she was staying.  He promised her he would never directly put her up and told her how grateful he was to her for being one of the only 2 people that did not want him out when he got evicted.  Aaryn came in and started telling lies and talking bullshit as usual (this really is all Aaryn does.  She mostly runs to Amanda and just makes things up out of nowhere.  It's really strange).  She told GinaMarie to go and have a chat with Elissa.

Judd went upstairs to tell Elissa what was going on  and warn her that Aaryn had told GinaMarie to come and have a conversation with her.  This is when Elissa lost her marbles again.  Elissa decided that Judd was working with Amanda/McCrae/Aaryn again.  I have NO idea where this came from, but she was clearly angry about it.  Judd tried to tell Elissa that wasn't the case and explained to her all the reasons he can't stand them now and wants Amanda out and wants Aaryn out.  Elissa wasn't having it.  Judd gave Elissa the gold coin he keeps with him that his mom gave him and told her that if he was lying she could keep it. Then Andy came in the room.  Andy confirmed everything Judd was saying about being anti-Amanda and Aaryn now and wanting to vote Aaryn out.  Elissa did not believe them and dismissed them from her room saying she was going to bed...but she didn't.

Elissa decided to hold court with GinaMarie and told her that Judd wants her up on the block SOOO bad because he wants Elissa and GM to turn against each other...which is NOT true at all.  Judd really wanted to work with GinaMarie, Elissa, Andy, and Spencer.   Elissa told GinaMarie that she is NOT putting her up, but that she is pretending she is going to and then she is putting Andy on the block anyway.  Putting Andy up won't send him home, Aaryn will still go, but Elissa's perception of what is happening is WAAAY off the map.  GinaMarie TOLD Elissa she will vote out Aaryn.  Whether she actually will or not, I don't know, but Amanda and McCrae are not going to vote Andy out, so really it won't matter in the end except that now Judd won't have the original support he did from GinaMarie and Elissa.

Spencer and Judd are still awake just talking about past things and about wanting Amanda out.  A few others are still awake as well, but things seem to be winding down for the night.  So much game happened tonight it's hard to keep up, and I LOVE it.  I am loving the fact that the feeds are not boring again. 

I know a lot of people tweeted me in anger about Judd working with Andy and Spencer tonight, but honestly, what could he do?  He can't just work alone with Elissa who can't play for the coming HOH, especially because she is bat shit crazy and stops trusting people out of nowhere for weird ass reasons.  He has to have someone, and he can't work with and doesn't want to work with Aaryn/Amanda/McCrae.  So there it is.  I think it was sort of a wise choice with his only mistake being telling Elissa to put up GM instead of Andy..which he really had good intentions about.

It's time for me to wind down now myself so I can gear up for another day of non-stop gaming.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Wow, what a night! First off, "Guess who's back, back again!"  I could not be more excited that of the 4 people competing, Judd won the competition to get back into the house!

And just as the whole house didn't want Aaryn to win HOH when she stayed, but she did, they all did not want Elissa to win tonight, so of COURSE Elissa got HOH.

As soon as the HOH comp was over and everyone came inside, the HGs scattered to their various corners to talk about how unhappy they were with both the return of a HG and with Elissa getting HOH.  Amanda immediately started her same old loop. She pulled Andy and McCrae into the cockpit so she could talk about how she is still SURE Judd was MVP and he just HAS to go because he has been trying to get her out of the house for WEEKS now.  Andy was more than happy to jump in with about a million "it's not fair's" and McCrae agreed.  Amanda also went straight to Elissa to try to get Judd put on the block. Elissa flat out told Amanda she would not be putting up Judd.

Elissa did tell Amanda that she would definitely be putting up Aaryn and possibly McCrae next to Aaryn.  What she said out loud was that she wants someone on the block that can beat Aaryn in veto, and that she wants someone who will fight their heart out to keep Aaryn from getting it.  It's very possible that this is the case, but I'm hoping that Elissa has bigger plans.  Amanda ran straight to McCrae to talk to him about what Elissa told her.  Amanda started crying over how she didn't win HOH and how McCrae might be going on the block, and they both schemed about how to get GinaMarie put up so they could still vote out Aaryn but keep themselves safe.  They also schemed about what to tell Judd about his eviction and eventually decided to blame it all on Helen and tell him that Helen had been telling them that he was MVP and he was after her.

McCrae then pulled Elissa into the cockpit to tell her how "dumb" it would be to put him on the block next to Aaryn.  He told her he would do anything to win the veto anyway including shave his head, and made a pretty long and convincing, if not somewhat forceful argument.  For a while it seemed like Elissa bought it.  She told McCrae she would consider not putting him up, but that Aaryn MUST go and if she feels like ANYONE doesn't fight as hard as they can for the veto, she is putting that person up next to Aaryn.

  Then Elissa pulled Spencer into the have-not room.  She made the same threats about veto that she made to McCrae to Spencer and also made a deal with him for 2 weeks of safety if she didn't put him on the block and told him she would likely be putting up McCrae and Aaryn.  Spencer acted like he was cool with all of this but then ran to McCrae and Andy to report all that Elissa had said. 

During this time Aaryn (who I am sure knows the deal) mostly just laid around and looked like she might die, and Andy revived his old game of "pop goes the weasel" into every conversation he could fit himself into. 

Pretty late in the night Elissa got her HOH room.  She got her Yoga matt (though it wasn't the right kind) and pictures (though they were not the ones she wanted), Fake eyelashes (that she said she would NEVER wear), pictures her little boy drew for her, a necklace from her mother, A letter from Rachel, and a large bottle of Skinny Girl Tequila.  Aaryn was the first to say she was tired and leave the HOH.

Once Aaryn went downstairs, Andy eventually followed her so that he could talk to her.  He told her he did not want GinaMarie going up next to her and that he thought McCrae would probably be the one going up with her.  He told her that he would prefer that over GM going up.  Now, I don't know if Andy is totally serious about his final 3 with Aaryn and GM or if he is just saying things to her in case she comes off the block, but if he is serious, McCrae, or whoever takes that spot next to Aaryn tomorrow could actually be in trouble.

Not to be deterred from being able to control the nominations, Amanda wasted no time in snuggling right up to "her new best friend".  I'm hoping all of this has no affect at all on Elissa just like everything else anyone tells her.

It's very hard for me to tell if Elissa really does live on another planet, or if there are actually wheels turning, but here is what I am HOPING she is doing.  I am hoping she is trying to break up the two major duos still left in the house by putting one of each up (McCrae and Aaryn).  If Aaryn won veto I am hoping she would put up Amanda next to McCrae to break them up, or put up GinaMarie next to Aaryn if McCrae came down.  That way you break up one of the couples either way.  I'm not positive this is what she is doing, but it's the only thing that I think would make sense with the nominations she is making. 

At this point a lot of them are still awake and I'm not sure how much more game talk will happen tonight, but I THINK it's likely that Aaryn and McCrae will go on the block today with Aaryn being the target.  Elissa is a little different from all the previous HOH's though, and that could be subject to change..especially with Amanda and McCrae constantly in her ear.  It should be an interesting week depending on who goes up and who wins veto.  Elissa seems determined to make her HOH count (that's what Helen told her to do) so maybe a decent sized move will be made.

I'm SO happy Judd is back! I'm not an Elissa fan, but I'm happy to see the person they all did not want to win HOH actually get it, and if she sends out Amanda, all the better for me.  This has the potential to be an interesting week between all the paranoia, campaigning, and fighting.  I don't think it will go exactly as any one person has planned out...for once.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

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...

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, the have-not comp was played and nominations happened today.  The week's have-nots are Helen, Elissa, GinaMarie, and Amanda.  Elissa and Helen were nominated as expected.  When the feeds returned after nominations, Helen and Elissa were talking to each other about how it all comes down to veto tomorrow.  Helen has no idea she is the target.  She has been told Spencer is the target if they can backdoor him, but if not, Elissa will go home.  Most of the HGs think this will be the "how bad do you want it" veto, and Helen said she is prepared to shave her head and eat slop for the rest of the summer. It will be interesting to see who does win veto as that could change the plans this week.

For a while Elissa talked to McCrae and Amanda about how she feels her time in the BB house has been unfair to her and how she wants to go home.  She still claims she will not stay in jury, but will walk if she gets evicted.  She also told him had she had an idea she would get evicted after jury started then she would have tried hard to get evicted before jury started so that she could go home to her family. My head hurts from all the eye rolling.

Amanda started on her newest campaign obsession tonight.  With Helen firmly planted on the block for now and her intention to send Spencer packing next week, she is hoping after that she can get Andy out because she feels no one can beat him in the end.  She told McCrae and said that Aaryn agrees with her. McCrae didn't seem to like the idea, but he wasn't exactly opposed to it either, which means if Andy doesn't watch out, he may be in trouble soon.  As much as I dislike Amanda personally, I can't deny the fact that she has controlled most of the evictions this season.  If she sets her sites on someone, they usually go.  This could all change though depending on who comes back into the house this coming Thursday. She may have to do a 180 and set her sites on re-evicting that person.

The rest of the night was mostly boring.  There was another nail party (yawn) and the boys downstairs plus Amanda spent a good portion of their night begging for booze.  McCrae and Amanda also did the usual face sucking among other activities.

After talking a lot with Aaryn over the course of the night, Helen came to the conclusion that Aaryn and everyone else (except Andy in her mind) will not use the veto if they get it.  So, she spent a while coaching Elissa on how she MUST win tomorrow in order to stay there.  This conversation turned into more of Helen boasting how she would never give Jessie a job recommendation in real life because she has bad character etc..  Helen really cannot go fast enough.

That's pretty much it game wise.  It all comes down to veto today.  If Helen wins, Elissa will go.  If Elissa wins, Helen will go.  There are perks to both in my opinion.  I just really hope something happens to liven things up after veto.

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!!
