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!! 

As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night... (unless something crazy starts happening again and I need to follow-up.)

The Night Owl

So, I didn't watch a lot of the feeds tonight, but not that much really changed from what I can tell. 

Early in the day Jessie gave Andy her usually "let's get Amanda out" speech.  The problem with this of course is that it only makes sense for Jessie's game.  This is probably what put the final nail in Jessie's coffin for the upcoming eviction.  Until now, Aaryn had been pushing for Spencer (she still is) and Andy was really thinking about keeping Jessie, but now that he knows she is still after Amanda, and told Amanda as much, there is probably no chance of her staying.

Amanda and McCrae whispered in bed for a good while about who they want out next week.  Amanda still wants to backdoor Helen.  McCrae and Andy have both tried expressing to Amanda that Helen is after here.  Amanda says she does not believe Helen would put her up, but still wants to backdoor her if she can.  If not she will get rid of GinaMarie or Spencer. 

After leaving their downstairs bed, Amanda and McCrae headed to the HOH bed to talk to Andy and Aaryn aobut next week's plans.  They continued to talk about getting rid of Helen or Elissa.  Andy seems more up for getting rid of Elissa, while the rest are all about getting rid of Helen..except for Aaryn who wants to get rid of Spencer. Amanda feels the four of them have everything worked out perfectly so that even if Helen won and nominated them, they still are untouchable.

Andy spent a good while talking to Spencer in the hammock.  They discussed the fact that they don't really think Judd was MVP. They think it was America.  They talked about the upcoming weeks and Andy told him how much he wants to keep him.  Spencer was pretty candid with him about most of his thoughts (although he never rats out the game he talks with GinaMarie).  When Andy talks with Spencer, it's the one person I cannot tell if he is being sincere with or not.  Part of me thinks he IS sincere about wanting to keep Spencer for a while, but just doesn't want the others to know he is close with him.  He could just be playing the same old "friendly with everyone" social game though.  It will be interesting to see if he has a hand in cutting him soon.

Eventually everyone but Spencer and GinaMarie moved up to the HOH to talk.  Helen wanted to talk about how they need to get Aaryn out so that she doesn't "HOH her way" to the end, but Amanda was not having it.  Amanda left the room shortly after Helen's comments were made, and the rest of the group agreed that Aaryn needs to go soon.  While that group was talking in the HOH, Spencer and GinaMarie talked on the patio about how unsafe they are going to feel unless something changes to get rid of one of the powerful 4 running the house.  I don't really think getting rid of Elissa is a power move. I think she is just included because she is close with Helen, but I guess they include her and call it a "foursome".

Also worth noting (although I didn't hear the full conversation) was a talk McCrae had with Andy much earlier in the evening about how he isn't really sure he trusts Amanda.  He mentioned that the DR really makes him not trust her, and that he thinks she may cut him loose soon.  He also talked about a girl he has back home for a little while.  I'm not sure if Amanda or McCrae will ever actually break from each other outside of one of them being evicted, but it would be very interesting to watch if it happened.

They are all still paranoid about one of the jurors coming back into the house, but no one really has a set plan in mind at this point.  Yesterday McCrae had mentioned wanting to get Elissa out so that she would be voted back in over Judd, but he seems to have either changed his mind today, or is just not willing to argue with Amanda and Helen about it.  They all pretty much came to the conclusion that they should stop worrying about the twist for now since there is nothing they can do about it.

The rest of the night was spent just drinking alcohol and having general chit-chat along with playing a few games.  They talked a lot about "this movie or that movie" etc..   But nothing really worth mentioning.

As I have mentioned before, I expect this week to be extremely boring as there are no real surprises happening.  The veto meeting will happen this morning, but for the first time this season, the veto will not be used.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more of my feed update silliness. Until tomorrow night...

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

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.

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

The Night Owl

Well, tonight was the halfway party and tomorrow is the start of Jury.  There was a tweet today from Julie with a picture of last year's reset button that was used to end the coaches twist and bring them into the game.  I'm going to go ahead and speculate that the picture means the end of the MVP twist and the beginning of 2 nominees instead of 3 for this season.

As far as what happened tonight, the HGs got a practice game for the coming double eviction.  It was one of those "roll the ball down the slide and get it in the bucket" sort of things.  I personally think it will be the final HOH.  I'm thinking the DE will go as usual and be a quiz for the first HOH and then a "run and find something inside a bin of something" to win the veto" comp.  The HGs are all pretty sure it's a double eviction now though because production insisted that GinaMarie needed to practice the game as well, which of course means she will be competing (which she wouldn't be if it was a regular HOH).  Aaryn, Amanda, and Elissa were all very good at the practice game.  The others caught on pretty quickly and got better at it.  Jessie and Judd were not great at it (unfortunately since they are the 2 main targets) and Candice got no balls in, but that's okay since she will be headed to jury by the time it's played.

Right after the hour of practice was over and the backyard was again locked down, the halfway party began.  When the feeds came back, everyone was a little drunk and food coma'd out.  They were excited they got to hear music and eat cake and pizza and drink.  So, for a LITTLE while everyone played nice and were civil to each other.  The only strange whisperings going on were about Jessie who apparently isolated herself during some of the party, and at some point told GinaMarie that it was "her vote" when GM asked her who she was voting out.

Amanda and McCrae had made a deal with GinaMarie earlier in the week for her HOH room for the night, so shortly after the party, they began trying to clear people out of the HOH so they could spend their night up there.  For several hours people popped in and out to talk strategy and votes.  Amanda, looking a lot like Cruella Deville got things stirred up for a while when she went between Aaryn and GinaMarie getting info and then confronting the other about the info she got from the first one.  She also made sure to get her final plugs into Aaryn about Judd being bad and needing to go.

Amanda also started a fight with McCrae as soon as they had the room to themselves.  This one had something to do with Aaryn, but to be honest I tuned a lot of it out.  Andy, McCrae, and Amanda all made sure that they each were on board with the plan to put up Jessie and Spencer and backdoor Judd unless he wins the veto.  Then Andy hopped downstairs to Helen to make sure she would do the same thing, and also get Elissa to do the same thing should either one of them win HOH. 

For a little while McCrae protested to Amanda that they are stronger with Judd there than with him gone, but Amanda said "HE MUST GO!! He put me on the BLOCK for 2 weeks now!!".  Then she had sex with him in the HOH bed and the matter seems to be settled.

Jessie, Elissa, Helen, and Candice had kind of a girls night in the have-not room, but I only caught bits and pieces of it.  A lot of it was Jessie explaining to Elissa that she did not understand why everyone was so much more determined to get her out next and no one was even considering evicting someone like Amanda.  They also did Bible studies and just chatted in general.

 

McCrae and Amanda had an after sex chat in the HOH room about who would go home if they were put up together.  Amanda said there was no way she would get voted out over him.  She believes everyone would vote him out instead.  She also added that "there is NO WAY anyone would put them up together. It just isn't going to happen.".  Okay, Amanda...

Candice and Elissa are still up chatting in the living room, and Amanda and McCrae are still off and on game talking in the HOH, but most everyone else is in bed and things are winding down.  So here it is:  Judd has only a few options to survive this DE.  He wins HOH, he gets drawn to play for veto and wins, Spencer wins HOH, Jessie wins HOH, Julie tells the HGs that America has been the MVP the last 3 weeks before the eviction happens.  Outside of one of those 4 things happening, he is likely toast.  In the event that one of those things does happen and he stays, Jessie will likely be the second person out tomorrow night. 

I will be super sad if Judd leaves.  His game may not be perfect (none of them are playing a perfect game) but I am highly entertained by him, and my late night feed watching will get a lot tougher without him there, so I'm really hoping he somehow pulls this off and manages to stay.  Dream scenario for me would be Jessie winning HOH and actually having the balls to put up Amanda and McCrae or Amanda and Helen, and with only 2 nominees, Amanda or Helen would go.  Before you jump down my throat, please notice I said "DREAM" scenario.  I don't believe it will actually happen.

The good news in all of this is that double evictions usually bring pretty exciting nights, and I expect this one will as well (hopefully anyway).  So, that's something to look forward to.  As always, you guys can follow me on twiter @ashes2ashes13 for more feed updates.  Happy double eviction day!!  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

A lot lot LOT of game talking went on tonight.  I think we are basically back where we started with Candice going home, but that didn't stop a lot of plans and freak-outs from happening.

When I first turned on the feeds tonight, Amanda was telling Aaryn about how she would like to win HOH this coming week and put up Helen and Jessie with the option of backdooring Judd OR possibly just sending Helen home.

While Amanda was having this talk with Aaryn, Jessie, Helen, and Elissa were plotting a way to get the votes to keep Candice and take Amanda out while they had the chance and she was on the block.  They discussed how it would have to work, and came to the conclusion that they needed to first pull Andy's vote and then Judd's.  Helen having no idea that Andy is much more loyal to Amanda than her, decided to go ahead and pull him into the storage room to talk to him about it.  Andy of course immediately said "no no NO!!" to the idea of voting out Amanda.  He told Helen he didn't feel comfortable with doing it this week.  Helen told Andy that she had heard that Amanda had plans to get her out the next week.  I'm not sure if she had really heard that or not, but if she was lying, it was a good one since it's actually kind of true.  Andy told her he had never heard anything from Amanda about wanting Helen out, and they needed to stay solid.  While they were talking, Aaryn was listening outside of the door to the storage room and then entered in the middle of the conversation.  She asked what they were talking about and they lied and said they were trying to figure out how they were going to tell Candice that she was going home.

Knowing that what she heard was a lie, Aaryn pulled Amanda into the have-not room to tell her everything she had heard.  Andy was not far behind Aaryn to come and spill what Helen had been saying to him.  He gave Amanda a much lighter version of what had been said and told her to NOT freak out or let anyone know that she knew what was going on.  They discussed making some deals or new alliances that might make Helen trust Amanda more and not want her out, then Andy left.  Aaryn continued telling Amanda that she was pretty sure that people were going to vote her out this week because she was certain that Jessie and Helen were going to be able to pull Judd's vote.

At the moment Aaryn was saying this, Helen was telling Judd about the plan in the storage room and trying to get his thoughts on it.  Like Andy, Judd said no, and that it was not a good idea for their game this week to turn on Amanda and get people after them in favor of keeping Candice who he had never talked any game with.

Although Amanda had been told by Andy to tell no one and not to freak out, she was apparently incapable of holding her tongue, and immediately ran outside to where Helen and Elissa were sitting and started crying to them saying "I just have a feeling there is a plan to get me out and something is going wrong this week.".  They assured her that this was not the case and that she was totally safe because they were all voting to evict Candice.

Meanwhile, Aaryn pulled Judd into the have-not room to ask him a bunch of questions about who he was going to vote out and if he was the MVP.  She aked her questions in a way that very much tipped off Judd that Amanda and the rest of his alliance may not trust him anymore.  He reassured Aaryn that he had no intentions of keeping Candice, and was definitely going to keep Amanda.

Because Amanda freaked out and tipped off Helen and Elissa that she knew something was going on, Andy had to pull Helen into the HOH room to do some damage control.  They discussed Amanda just being paranoid and it not being a good idea to get her out this week.  They then pulled Jessie into the HOH room to tell her that it wasn't going to happen.  Jessie told them that she did not feel secure keeping Amanda, but she did not push the issue since the votes were not there.  At the end of this conversation both Aaryn and GinaMarie entered the HOH room.

After Andy, Helen, and Jessie left, Aaryn began telling GinaMarie that she was sure that Amanda was getting voted out insted of Candice.  She said she was positive that Elissa, Jessie, and Helen were going to be able to convince Judd or Andy to vote with them.  GinaMarie said that she would just have to put up someone who was going to keep Candice as the replacement nom instead of Spencer.

GinaMarie then began holding meetings in the HOH room, starting with Judd.  She kind of threatened him about his vote and insinuated that she may put him up if he didn't agree to vote the way she wante dhim to.  Judd was completely confused as to who might be saying that he wasn't voting out Candice, and went on to convince GM that there would be no perks to him keeping Candice and that he definitely would not vote out Amanda.  At the end of the meeting GM told him he was 120% safe, but the meeting was of course enough to set off Judd's paranoia. 

After a few more meetings in the HOH room, GinaMarie was convinced that they still had the votes to get Candice out and decided to go back to her plan of nominating Spencer when Jessie pulls herself off the block. Meanwhile downstairs, Aaryn was telling McCrae and Andy how she needed GinaMarie gone sooner than later since she was freaking out and had the worst case of HOH-itis Aaryn had ever seen.

For a little while, there was a lull in game talk since Amanda was convinced that she was okay and that they had the votes, and Helen had stopped trying to push for a vote to get Amanda out.

During the lull dinner was cooked and served, and alcohol was delivered.  Amanda decided she did not feel up to having her bachelorette party tonight, so the alcohol was distributed between the regular drinkers (Judd, McCrae, Aaryn, and Elissa). 

The lull did not last long.  Aaryn started telling Amanda some things Jessie had said about getting she and Helen out last week when Aaryn was HOH, and that set Amanda off all over again.  Adding to her paranoia was the fact that Jessie and Elissa were in fact down in the cockpit room trying to figure out a way to get her voted out.  Elissa's brain is still stuck on not voting out Candice and so she and Jessie have set their minds to trying to find the votes.  Judd, Andy, and Candice at different moments in time tried to come into the cockpit, but in her awkward and very obvious Elissa way, she ran them all off one by one causing each one of them to run up to the HOH where Amanda was having her freak out so that they could report what they had seen.

Helen, Amanda, Aaryn, GinaMarie, and Andy all tried to talk over each other in the HOH room for quite a while, but they were all basically saying the same thing.  It doesn't matter what Elissa or Jessie does, because they have all the votes they need and are not going to be swayed.

Eventually after being convinced once again that she was alright, Amanda decided she was okay and went outside to talk to McCrae leaving Judd to talk to Helen and GM about whether he made a stupid mistake by letting Jessie keep the veto.

As Judd's aggrivation with Jessie has grown this week, he has stopped sleeping in her bed and tonight was planning to sleep in GinaMarie's old bed and let Aaryn sleep there as well.  Andy was planning to sleep with Jessie.  Aaryn has been gradually (or not so gradually or subtly) putting the moves on Judd as he distances himself from Jessie.  This became an issue tonight when Elissa found out where Aaryn was sleeping.  Elissa told Jessie, and Jessie told Judd that she missed sleeping with him and wanted him to come back to her bed.  Elissa then threw out "I dunno Jessie, I have a feeling a new sleeping situation is happening tonight"  In her passive aggressive Elissa way.  For a while this made things awkward and Judd talked to Amanda, McCrae, and Andy about it, but it actually led to a VERY interesting conversation.

At the height of all the weirdness with the bed situation, Jessie got Judd to come talk to her in the room where they normally sleep.  She laid out the entire game as she sees it right now.  She talked about how she knows that Amanda and McCrae have been controlling who does and doesn't go home from the very beginning. She told him how Helen knows that Andy is more loyal to them after tonight. She explained how Aaryn is also completely loyal to them and GinaMarie does whatever Aaryn tells her to.  She broke down for him what would happen if he voted with Helen, Elissa, and herself to evict Amanda.  She said McCrae would be after she and Helen more than anyone and would likely have to stick with Judd just to have someone unless he just wanted to stick with Aaryn.  She told him Andy would likely become completely loyal to Helen once he no longer had Amanda because he would have no choice.  She finished it by explaining that she knows that if Candice goes this week, she will go next week, and after that it will be Elissa, and then he or Helen going home.  She had a lot of valid points.   When she was done telling him how she saw things, she told him to just think about it and not decide what to do right away.  Judd told her he would think about it and that he definitely saw what she was saying.  Surprisingly, he did not tell Amanda and McCrae about this plan to get Amanda out...

When Judd did not tell Amanda and McCrae about his conversation with Jessie, I thought he was possibly considering what she said, and maybe he is a little bit since he did make out with Jessie for a while (stop that! NO MORE SHOWMANCES!!), but a little later, he did start to tell Andy that Jessie wants Amanda out, but that he did not want to tell Amanda because it would cause her to freak out, so my gut feeling is that he is not even going to take it into consideration.

At this point I still feel like Candice is leaving even though we have a few more days and a bachelorette party to get through before that happens.  I expect to see Spencer put on the block in Jessie's place later today.  Hopefully the scrambling will keep on coming.  At least it isn't boring.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night..

The Night Owl

Surprise! Your new HOH is the cinnamon eating, FroYo guzzling, not able to digest water, GinaMarie.

 

 

So what happens when you keep evicting all the boys and then you add alcohol?  A really interesting fight night!

When GinaMarie first came back into the house after winning her HOH, she and Aaryn immediately started talking about who the nominations would be and it was between Candice and either Spencer or Jessie with Candice being the target.  We all knew that though.  In the other room, Amanda and McCrae started to talk about how they wanted to get Aaryn to get in GinaMarie's ear to try and go through with their backdoor Judd plan, but both agreed that they may not be able to push their agenda this week and might just have to lose Candice or Spencer.

 

 

Everybody did the go see GinaMarie's HOH room thing.  Spencer talked through his bullhorn (he got a punishment that requires him to only talk through it  until after noms).  GinaMarie got her desired picture of Nick as part of her HOH, Helen debated on who to take to her BBQ party she won by falling early in the HOH comp, and the have-nots got to eat.

Shortly after the have-nots started eating, alcohol arrived.  Candice, Amanda, Elissa, and Helen were all drinking wine of course.  Right after the drinking began, Jessie joined Amanda, McCrae, Andy, and Judd in the cockpit. She started crying because she did not understand why Helen had invited Aaryn to her BBQ party instead of Jessie.  She started getting really snappy with Andy who later said he felt like it was another "it's the ultimate disrespect to sit on a Texan's hat" moments.   Judd tried to calm her down and asked her if there was anything he could do for her.  She snapped at  him with "Maybe if I could take pills I would be happy TOO!" (talking about the meds he takes for anxiety).  She then exited the cockpit saying "I don't even want to be int his house anymore!".

While my brain was still trying to figure out what crazy train Jessie was riding, all of the sudden a fight erupted in the kitchen and Amanda and Candice started screaming at each other about Howard leaving.  Amanda was yelling about her being sad about it and telling her why he had to go, THEN she yelled out what Howard supposedly said to her in the kitchen (which cut to fish of course).  When the feeds returned from fish, they went several more rounds about Howard and alliances etc...   Amanda yelled at Candice about trying to flip the house and told her that she made Judd look shady and Jessie look shady etc.. etc..  Candice snapped back with a lot of replies and also implied that Jessie was the one that came to THEM with the idea to flip the house. Not the other way around.  After the fight had gone on for a while, Helen of course felt the need to jump in with her two cents also.  When the yelling was finally over, Amanda, Helen, and Elissa marched up to the HOH room while Judd and Andy stayed in the kitchen to comfort Candice.

 

 

While Andy and Judd comforted Candice, a hen fest of bitching started up in the HOH room with Amanda, Helen, Elissa, GinaMarie, McCrae, and Aaryn.  They were all re-telling the stories at once and basically sealing the deal to put up Candice and Jessie tomorrow for nominations.

 

 

This HOH bash session went on for quite a while, and then it SEEMED like things were calming down a little when Helen and Elissa went down to the kitchen to drunkenly talk to Candice about how bad they felt evicting Howard and how they are not all working together etc..

Then the feeds went to fish for a while for BB to re-open the backyard.  When the feeds came back, Amanda and Jessie were screaming at each other, and it was dirty!!  Jessie accused Amanda of being a bully, Amanda called Jessie a slut and told her to close her legs as well as accusing her of being after McCrae.  Jessie told Amanda she wasn't the one sitting outside in her freaking underwear all the time.

Then the feeds cut to fish again. Only audio was coming through on a lot of the fights, so unfortunately I don't have many screen caps to show you.  When the feeds returned, instead of being on the backyard fight with Jessie and Amanda, they were on the bedroom where Candice was again sobbing about what Amanda told Candice Howard had said to her.

Then feeds cut again for probably 20 minutes.  When they came back all 4 feeds were on the HOH with GinaMarie and Helen talking about the fact that Jessie and Amanda were still apparently screaming at each other in the back yard, but no one wants to be out there.  I WANT TO SEE IT!!

The fight between Jessie and Amanda has been going on for over 30 minutes now but ou only hear glimpses now and then when someone opens the door to the BY because for SOME reason they will not show the BY and instead keep cutting to fish or all 4 feeds on Helen eating in the HOH room etc..   I am giving up out of frustration. The last thing I heard was about 10 minutes ago when Amanda yelled "You are acting like a psychopath!" to Jessie.

I know one thing.  Guess who is sitting pretty again compared to this past week?  This guy:

 

 

Spencer is situated pretty good now as well.  The crazy known as Candice and Jessie are sinking themselves, and Amanda seems to be on a mission to take herself down with them.

If the feeds turn to what is actually happening and I get to see anything more, I will post a follow-up, but for now I'm going to give up and just post what I have.  As always you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.   I expect to see Jessie and Candice nominated sometime this morning.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

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

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

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

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 

Well, today started out like a pretty normal average day.  It did NOT stay that way for long though.  Early on Tuesday morning everyone was still on board for keeping Aaryn and evicting Kaitlin.  Amanda, Elissa, Andy, and McCrae were talking about Howard and Religion out in the backyard not far from where Howard was actually standing when Elissa started to get a little bit loud about it.  Andy tried to give her a nonchalant "shhh" so that Howard would not hear them and McCrae giggled at the effort.  That's when the few marbles that Elissa still possessed completely fell out of her head.  She was just SURE that they were making fun of her religion and laughing at her about it.  She stormed inside.  Andy and McCrae tried to follow her and let her know it had nothing to do with her religion and that they were only trying to keep her voice down.  Elissa told them she did not want to talk to either of them.  She also added "I'm not stupid. I know you were making fun of me. It's a disgrace. I take my beliefs very seriously.".  It took a while for them to convince her, but finally things SEEMED like they were going to be okay...until the HOH lockdown.

A few hours later there was a lockdown where all the HGs had to stay in the HOH.  Most of them dozed off and slept except for Amanda and Elissa.  They went into the bathroom and Elissa ended up crying in a shower stall telling Amanda again that she is not stupid and knows that they were making fun of her religious beliefs.

Once the lockdown was over Elissa crawled into Judd's HOH bed and went to sleep and the other HGs went their separate ways and did their own thing.  Earlier in the morning, Judd, Amanda, McCrae, Andy, and Helen had all compared notes on Howard and Spencer.  Amanda was still claiming to be in a fake alliance with Howard (she isn't) and saying that he has deals with everyone in the house.  This prompted Judd and Andy to spill about the fake alliance they have with Spencer and Howard that also sort of sometimes includes GinaMarie and Kaitlin.  Helen told Elissa about it and Elissa asked Judd if it was true and he told her yes, and so she agreed that was another good reason to get Kaitlin out and to go after Howard next week.

Amanda hammered on to Judd some more about how she thinks Howard is the problem in the house and how she thinks he is MVP and has secret powers.  Judd who was not feeling well due to running out of his meds and no being able to sleep much then went on a very un-Judd-like rampage of a little bit of meanness and a lot of searching under mattresses and inside pillows around Howard's bed trying to find a "coup de tat" or something similar.  After he got his meds he started to calm down and went to play a game of pool with Howard.

While this game of pool was happening, Elissa, still missing her marbles, decied to go and do her super passive aggressive bitch thing with Kaitlin.  She of course had an agenda...to get Aaryn to be the one voted out. 

Elissa started asking Kaitlin if she had a secret alliance with Howard, GM, Judd, and Kaitlin.  She told her that if she didn't she needed to confront them in front of the whole house so that people would know about it.  She also told her that people were planning to vote her out, but that she wanted Aaryn gone and so she wanted to know what was really happening.  Kaitlin being not very bright in many ways took the bait and immediately ran to Helen and Aaryn to tell them what Elissa had been saying.  Aaryn also told Helen that she had heard her name mentioned.

We all know how quickly news travels in the BB house.  It only took about 10 minutes for everyone in the house to know what was happening.  Helen in an effort to do damage control went searching for Elissa and found her laying in bed with GinaMarie chatting.  She asked if she could talk to her and Elissa said no.  Helen pressed the matter, and then Aaryn walked in. 

Then all hell broke loose.  Aaryn and Elissa started snipping at each other because Elissa kept telling Aaryn that she was saying things about her all the time etc..   Aaryn started defending herself and for ONCE, Aaryn was actually right.  Somewhere during the spat Elissa told Kaitlin she wanted to know the truth and told her to go get Spencer and Howard.  Once they came in, the whole house besides Amanda and McCrae (who still have their asses glued to the HOH bed) and Candice who was sleeping, also joined the party.  The argument was very circular.  Elissa kept accusing Aaryn of lying about her and then asking about the fake alliance.  All involved denied the fake alliance and Aaryn kept telling Elissa exactly what she said and telling her that she had tried to patch things up with her many times. 

In this particular argument, Aaryn was actually completely right.   Before you guys chop my head off, let me say I am NOT in any way defending the things that Aaryn has said, or her as a  person.  I am just saying in this one instance, she was right.  Judd was probably one of the most truly uncomfortable people in the room since everyone including Elissa kept asking "well who said there was an alliance?" when Elissa knew full well that he was the one who told her about it. 

After several really strange rounds, the meeting/fight broke up and Helen and Andy ran straight up to the HOH room to talk to Amanda and McCrae about what had just happened.  Amanda of course started blaming Spencer and Howard, but the room consensus was that Elissa has to go SOON and possible before Howard or Spencer.

While the HOH talks were happening, Judd went out to talk to Elissa in the backyard.  He told her that she was one of his best friends in the house and that he had felt close to her since she had been very kind to him when he was really sick week one.  He then told her that even though they were close he needed to know if she had his back because what she did was putting a huge target on him.  She refused to understand that what she did had any repercussions to his game and in the end told him "you are all liars".  Meaning that she believes he made up the alliance with Howard and Spencer to get her to vote Kaitlin out of the house.

Elissa then went inside to take a shower and also victimize herself to Howard and a few other people that would listen to her.  Things seemed to be mostly dying down for the night other than the mass talks about Elissa being insane....but THEN they got booze!!

Wine always seems to be the thing tha fuels Amanda at her worst/best dramatic moments in the house and tonight was no different.  Helen, Kaitlin, and Candice were in the hammock drinking wine and chatting about what had happened.  Candice was implying that Amanda had created the story about the fake alliance prompting Elissa to do what she did.  Up in the HOH room, Amanda was talking shit about Candice to McCrae.  Eventually Jessie who had heard  the conversation with Candice came up to the HOH and told Amanda what had been said. This fueled the slightly buzzed Amanda to go downstairs and confront Candice.  She yelled at her and accused her of having no balls and then went back upstairs.

And the wine just kept flowing....

After going upstairs and telling McCrae and Aaryn what happened with Candice, and talking a lot of shit about Candice and Kaitlin, Amanda decided to make a return trip for round two.  This time she didn't yell at Candice, but instead was really nasty about people not present mainly Kaitlin and GinaMarie.   Once the outside party was broken up, Amanda pulled Howard and Spencer into the Cockpit to basically tell Howard to control Candice and keep her name out of Candice's mouth. Meanwhile, Kaitlin went upstairs and vented to McCrae about the Amanda situation.

At some point in-between all the fighting and craziness, Amanda started getting even closer with Aaryn, and at this point I think she might actually consider her an alliance member.

Right now things seem to be settling down.  Amanda and McCrae are alone in the HOH room and Spencer, Helen, and Andy are chatting in the Hammock about what happened.

What an INSANE night!! We still have more than 24 hours to go before the eviction so things are subject to change, but as of now, Kaitlin is still leaving and Aaryn and GinaMarie are staying.  Who knows what will happen today though.  With Elissa seeming to have gone off the rails or "gone rogue" as a few HGs have called it, a million things could happen today.  I expect to see a lot of duckfacing it up before eviction night on Thursday.  I will throw some pictures of the night down below for you all to see.  I won't lie, this blog was better the first time I wrote it, but my tired brain accidentally deleted it all and so I had to start over.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight updates.  Until tomorrow night...
