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.
