The Night Owl

For the most part the feeds were really boring yesterday and tonight.  There were a few tidbits here and there that are worth mentioning though.

Jessie and Spencer are nominated as predicted.  While Andy was the one to put the keys in, this is of course another Amanda/Helen HOH...mostly Amanda this time.  When the feeds returned from the nomination ceremony, Amanda was telling McCrae "Helen MUST GO next week."  and that she must be backdoored.  This is typical for Amanda at this point. As soon as the nomination ceremony happens each week, by the end of it she is pushing for the next week's target.

Earlier in the day, Helen had given a gentle push to Andy about possibly getting Amanda out this week, but as he is more loyal to Amanda than Helen, this of course did not fly.  She continued to question it off and on a little tonight through stealth whispers, but each time Andy just told her "it's not time to make a move like that yet."

I'm honestly not sure what exactly it is that Aaryn is up to.  She is supposed to be in a final 4 alliance with Amanda, McCrae, and Andy, but they all want Jessie gone this week, and Aaryn is suddenly pushing to keep Jessie and evict Spencer.  She only dropped subtle hints about it to Andy and Helen, but she spent a good portion of her night coaching Jessie on various veto comps and how to win them as well as how to manipulate the HGs into thinking they need you to stay. 

While Aaryn was coaching Jessie, Amanda and McCrae talked about who they are taking to the final 3 with them.  Amanda has become very comfortable with the idea (or fact as it is in her mind) that she will be in the final 2.  She and McCrae talked about taking Elissa "because she can't win anything"...I guess Amanda forgot Elissa has won one more comp than she has.  They talked about other people too, but never came to a conclusion.  When Judd was still in tight with Amanda, he told her several times not to get comfortable because if you do, the next week you'll go home.  I've never ever wished for a prediction to come true so hard in my life...although Helen going out would be great too.

Veto should pbe played sometime today.  Most of the HGs are pretty sure it will be either the "count until an hour" comp or the "count things and play poker" comp.  I have no idea what it will actually be.  With Andy being HOH this week and the MVP twist gone, I don't expect anything crazy to happen.  Even if Jessie or Spencer wins Veto, it will just mean that GinaMarie will go up and likely go home instead of Jessie (although Amanda says Jessie must still go even if GM goes up).  The most exciting thing we will probably see this week is whether Amanda or Helen is a better schemer since the two are now ready to go after each other next week.

The Night Owl

Well, it's been a long night.  We watched the first double eviction of the season go down, and while the drama was very high and entertaining, I was also extremely sad to see my very favorite person in the house walk out the door. 

When the feeds returned after the show, Amanda and Helen had already begun to game hard again.  They were exchanging stories to Jessie and Aaryn and Spencer and anyone else who would listen about how "Bad" Judd was and how he was a liar and had to go etc..   Alternately, McCrae and Andy were crying and McCrae was second guessing his decision.  When McCrae got a moment alone with Spencer, Spencer told him "I don't know what all this other crap going around about Judd is, but he always told me he was loyal to you and Amanda and Andy.".  This later spawned a conversation between Amanda and McCrae where McCrae told her that he did not actually believe that Judd was up to all the stuff she was claiming he was, and he felt like this was a really bad game move for him to get rid of one of his allies.  DING DING DING!!

Shortly after the feeds had come back, they went to trivia again so the next HOH comp could be played.  Surprise! Andy won!!  I was actually really shocked by the fact that he won, but unfortunately it's disappointing (in my opinion anyway) because it means this will be  ANOTHER freaking week of doing what "the house" wants...meaning what Amanda and Helen want.   Amanda has already told Andy to put up Spencer and Jessie and make Jessie the target.  If one of them wins veto Amanda wants GinaMarie to go up. Andy has agreed to all of this. ...*snore*

Amanda had a meltdown (surprise!) and a small fight with McCrae because she did not win the HOH comp and she blames him for beating her out.  It sounds like it was one of those games where you play against each other and then the last people standing battle it out.  From what I understand the last pairing came down to Andy and McCrae.  Andy then got to choose have-nots, but people volunteered, so he didn't have to choose.  Have-nots ended up being Elissa, Helen, Aaryn, and GinaMarie.

There was a lot more talk between various HGs over the course of the night, but very little of it had to do with game.  Most of it was either sadness over Judd being gone or just talk of how stressful the double eviction was.  Aaryn got her HOH basket. Andy got his HOH room. He got an old fingernail that fell off when he was a kid and his teeth in his HOH basket.  I'm not kidding. They got alcohol and Helen smoked a celebratory cigarette and trumpeted on and on about Andy being "America's HOH" right now. blah..blah...blah..

I expect we will see Spencer and Jessie put on the block this morning.  It should be a fairly uneventful day and week really since there is no longer and MVP or third nomination, and not even a have-not comp.  Even if one of the people on the block wins veto, a predictable nom is going up in their place. 

I have a lot of questions in my head this week.  Why oh WHY won't they take a swing at Aaryn? With 3 HOH wins and a veto win only halfway through the season, why not go after her when they KNOW she can play HOH again this coming week?  They all thought Howard and Judd were "the most dangerous players in the game", but for some reason no one will take a swing at Aaryn the comp monster or Helen or Amanda who have been running every HOH via manipulation since the season started.  I don't get it!

I also want to know what Julie means with all her cryptic tweets about reset buttons and her comment to the HGs during the live show that "this year going to jury does not necessarily mean you are out of the game.".  It could be something totally stupid, OR (and I'm afraid to even hope) it COULD mean one of the evicted HGs will get to come back into the game.  He was one of the only people I was actually entertained by while watching the late night feeds.

Outside of pondering  twists and why this cast REFUSES to shake things up or make a move, the only thing left to do is wait until all the outsiders are voted out so we can actually see who will get who first when it comes down to Helen and Elissa vs McCrae and Amanda.

The Night Owl

A lot happened tonight, but most of it will be inconsequential in the long run.  For most of the day and night Candice did not leave the have-not room and stayed in her airplane bed under a cover.  She had determined that she was likely going to be the target when she is put up today/tomorrow and she felt that had been the plan all along.  She was also dealing with Howard not being happy with her for trying to campaign on his behalf in addition to most of the HGs talking shit about her to varying degrees.

 

 

While Candice stayed in bed there was another stupid nail party up in the HOH.  All the girls plus Andy and minus Candice participated this time while the boys downstairs had a pizza making party.  Much wine and beer was partaken of at the nail party upstairs and all the girls aside from GinaMarie and Amanda (have-nots) were quite tipsy after leaving the party.

 

 

While Helen, Elissa, Jessie, and Andy continued to drink, Amanda told Judd that the general consensus of the nail party is that he is being mean this week and so he needs to be nicer to the girls and kiss a little ass.  She told him she did damage control by telling them that he was a have-not/not feeling good/having anxiety, but that he still needed to be nicer and that Jessie was upset that he was not being more "lovey" with her.  So after checking in on Candice to see if she needed anything, off he went to the HOH to girl bond.

 

 

Meanwhile Amanda went in to speak to Candice about what was going on with her.  They had a VERY long discussion in which Candice told her how she felt and Amanda tried to explain to her that none of this was personal and that it was all game.  She told her that she needed to take her personal feelings for Howard out of it and not to give up. They also talked about Aaryn and Amanda tried to explain to her that the Aaryn thing was also a personal issue and not related to the game.  Candice told her she understood all of that, but that if it was Amanda up against McCrae on the block or if she had been attacked for being Jewish, she would be emotional too. While Amanda was talking to Candice, Helen and Elissa took it upon themselves to listen to the whole conversation at the door.

 

 

After a while Helen and Elissa got tired of listening in on the conversation and decided to just insert themselves into it.  Helen did a lot of self victimizing and martyring of herself as well as telling Candice that she (Candice) could not work with someone who has been lying to her (Helen) for the WHOLE game.  Did I mention Helen was still drinking?

 

 

The conversation eventually wound down after Candice admitted to them that Spencer had been the one to encourage her to campaign for Howard and that he told her what to say to Helen last night.  I don't know if that part is actually true or not. I missed the conversation Candice had with Spencer about campaigning, but I don't doubt it.  Once the conversation was over, Candice finally emerged from the have-not room to move around the house and go outside for a bit.  This made me happy since until tonight I was pretty sure Candice had given up all will to live in the game and might self evict.  I'm not sure she is cut out for BB, but I do feel bad when someone gets so down they become that isolated and cry that much.

For a while it was all fun and drunk games as Helen loudly blabbed about things and Andy threw a lime in the pool and made jokes about Nick that made GinaMarie freak out. The drunk people were tipsy and the have-nots smoked.  Didn't last long though.

 

After the conversation with Candice Amanda went up to the HOH room to talk to Aaryn and GinaMarie about how Spencer was the one to blame for Candice's "threatening" campaigns last night.  She told them that this means they can't go after Candice next, but instead need to go after Spencer and make sure that he is the next one out.

 

 

This conversation was apparently upsetting to Aaryn (who was also drunk) because she does not want Candice back in the game.  At 2 different times during the night she had Spencer up in the HOH room alone to tell him that she thinks Howard is a good man and that she does not want him to go home. She wants Candice to be the target. During her second talk with him she admitted to him that it was not Helen who wanted Howard nominated and out, it was Amanda.  She told him that now she felt trapped like there was nothing she could do because Amanda was now saying that Candice wasn't even a target anymore.

 

 

Downstairs, Drunk Helen told Drunk Elissa that Jessie was now a problem and that she was trying to play head games with them.  She told Elissa that she couldn't get Aaryn alone without Jessie and that she was now sure that Jessie was the one that told lies about Kaitlin to get her out of the house and make sure they kept Aaryn so that she could get Elissa and Helen to target Aaryn next. What?!  Anyway, the two of them made a drunken plan to tell Jessie how much they love Aaryn and want to keep her now just to drive Jessie crazy. Helen also apologized to the camera for evicting Kaitlin (of course).

 

 

The "Goof Troop" alliance minus Judd/plus Jessie had a meeting in the cockpit to make sure they were all still on the same page to get Howard out and then target Spencer next.  They as of now are planning to tell Howard that things are fine and that he is okay and then blindside him on Thursday if they can.  Chances are it won't be a true blindside though since they already told Candice she is absolutely staying.

Aaryn came outside for a while and told Amanda and Judd about her conversations with Spencer and said that she was just trying to make him think that she was low on their totem pole and trying to cover her bases with Spencer. Amanda told Aaryn that she is actually staying for a long time and that Elissa and others were all going well before she would ever be gone.

Helen held court in the storage room where for a while she had a drunk love fest conversation with GinaMarie and then later had a conversation with Howard.  Helen told GM that she would likely win America's favorite player and discussed Nick with her for a while.  Howard told Helen that if he was going to be put on the block next to Candice, he would rather have them keep her and send him home.

 

 

Andy listened in at the door while Helen and Howard were talking and then went to talk to Helen afterwords.  He told her that he realized Howard was a nice guy but that was the reason he has to go.  He later reported everything back to Amanda and the rest of his alliance. He told Amanda and McCrae that he and Helen just think Howard is probably a nice guy outside of the game. Amanda freaked out and went into the "but Howard BULLIED me" speech.  Andy told her to please not pull a Judd and just trust him that he and Helen are solid. 

While Andy was talking to Helen and the others, Howard and Candice got into a fight about everything that Helen and Amanda told Candice earlier in the night.  They told her that Howard had not protected her and was campaigning against her and so she was mad at him about it.  Howard told her that he was sincerely sorry for whatever he had done, but that he was surprised that she would believe the lies of people coming in to talk to her about him.  He also told her he knew that she was definitely staying in the house and that he just wanted her to get herself right and ready for the next HOH. The fight went in circles for a really long time as do most Howard and Candice conversations.

 

 

After the fight, Spencer and Howard went into the cockpit to talk about game. Judd came in and told Howard that he was planning on keeping him but that he thinks Candice is going up. Howard told Judd that he had just had a discussion with Helen in which he told her that if he and Candice were going to be pitted together, he would rather have them keep Candice and send him home. He explained to Judd that it made no sense to him that everyone had been supposedly targeting GinaMarie and Aaryn, but now that Helen was pulling Aaryn's strings, suddenly it would be Candice going up and not GM.  He said that there was also another person on the block that could be voted out (Amanda) and that he had never seen a season where the whole house felt the need to vote together a certain way just because one or two people in power say so.  Andy popped in on the conversation and Howard explained it to him as well.

Howard made very good points to Judd and Andy about people playing just to get to jury and people just doing what the people who are going to beat them in the end are telling them to do, but unfortunately it I am sure it falls on deaf ears since Judd and Andy are solidly aligned with Amanda, McCrae, Helen, and Elissa.

 

 

While this conversation was going on, Amanda and McCrae were outside discussing how they may not trust Andy and Judd. Amanda has decided she is not sure she trusts Judd anymore because he lied (even though he admitted it to her) about Kaitlin wanting Helen out.  The conversation between the two of them started to get heated when Amanda started trying to obviously pull people into the cockpit to talk to them in front of Spencer and the two ended up fighting with Amanda storming out angry.  I missed a LOT of the conversation before the fight due to listening to the conversation with Howard, Judd, Spencer, and Andy, but I THINK it was mostly about Amanda being paranoid and not trusting people in their alliance.

Things are still going right now. Amanda is in the Hammock, McCrae in the cockpit and Spencer and Judd are talking on the outside couch.  A LOT of game talk is happening and it's fun to watch them scramble, but I don't think it changes anything.  I'm still pretty certain Howard will be going home on Thursday.  I will update if any more happens while I am still awake.   The veto meeting should be sometime this morning, and I expect barring something crazy drastic happening, Candice will be put on the block after Spencer takes himself off.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

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

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

 

 

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

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

 

 

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

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

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

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