Big Brother Season 15 Finale Recap

Finally, our long summer nightmare is coming to an end. After 36 episodes, 90 days, and dozens of head-scratching moves and comments, we’re down to three people of questionable taste and talents. There’s “Pop-In” Andy, whose main talent was to somehow interrupt every single conversation every house mate had this season. There’s butterscotch booty-loving Spencer, a terminal pawn that could never find a competition he wasn’t a complete failure. Finally, there’s GinaMarie, a brash imbecile who apparently utilizes a unique form of insurance and is obsessed with a manchild who is unlikely to ever give her the time of day again (unless she wins).

Yep, this is not the best trio of finalists we’ve ever had. To be fair, though, they all did what was necessary to make it to the end, and that’s all that counts. Andy was a master at playing both sides as long as possible. Spencer had just enough of a social game that he was never considered a real threat. And GinaMarie...ok, I can’t quite figure out how she made it this far.

Despite all the hand wringing on social media about these folks, and the season as a whole, I’m going to be a bit shocking and say that I’ve enjoyed this season more than the last few. There’s been plenty of action, both good and bad. There’s been game changing moves. Most importantly, there hasn’t been quite as much production interference. There weren’t veterans put in with twists designed to keep them as long as possible. Pandoras, DPOV’s, and other bogus tricks weren’t utilised to ensure certain outcomes. Outside of one gimmick plant, this was a pretty pure season.

Of course, a good portion of you readers won’t allow me to get away without addressing the main criticism of the year. Yes, too many people said too many dumb things that offended everybody. It’s also happened in previous seasons, though, and around 8 PM Big Brother time each and every one of these offenders will begin to see the ramifications of their words. They’ll discover the lost jobs, the online backlash, and embarrassed friends and family members. If this major issue isn’t (properly) addressed tonight, as I don’t think it will, just keep in mind that the real world won’t let them forget.

So here we go with tonight’s finale. To be honest, I’m not going to be nearly as thorough as I have been throughout the season. There will be no need to recreate entire conversations, or every jury/Julie question, so quotes will be kept to a minimum.

After a long, long intro recapping the entire season, we go right to the first HOH competition. Funny thing is that this roller skating comp lasted just a tad longer than that intro. Why didn’t they show this on Sunday’s recap show? They are hanging onto a bar while skating, and there’s obstacles, smoke, bubbles and other garbage. Of course, all of this silliness brings on the clown music. All you really need to know is that Spencer went down almost immediately, and Andy struggled for a few more minutes before falling. Yep, GinaMarie won part one, and celebrates in a pile of glitter! Worst “endurance” comp ever...although there’s a semi-comic moment when GinaMarie “chokes” on glitter!

Part two then features Andy versus Spencer, and it’s an underwater treasure hunt...without the water. Andy makes a Little Mermaid joke (groan) before he describes how they have to find crabs of all the evicted houseguests and then put them in order. Oh, and they have to place them at the top of a rock climbing wall. Guess who will win this one? The fastest time is the winner.

Andy goes first, and we get all of the stupid “stakes have never been higher” silliness as we see him working his way up and down the platform. Andy has trouble finding Candice’s crab, and then after finding it he discovers he has a mistake in the order. He climbs back up and fixes it, and he’s done!

It’s now Spencer’s turn, and he repeats the speech about how important this competition is for his game. Yep, we get it! Spencer is quickly struggling with the wall, as expected, and keeps falling. He’s getting frustrated, and the inspirational music comes up as he thinks about his family and friends back home. Ugh. He gets a second wind, and finally finishes.

The times are then announced, and Andy was finished in 21:54. Spencer’s time was 36:11. Andy wins round two, and will be up against GinaMarie later in the show for that final HOH spot!

Spencer’s plan is to now make both of them feel comfortable with him, which, honestly, is what they’re all doing now. GinaMarie thinks she would take Andy, and starts crying because she doesn’t believe she’d beat him.

We move on to jury time, and Dr. Will surprises them. Yes, Helen jumps up and down in excitement (as expected). He asks who they think will be joining them, and after a couple of people say they want it to be Andy, Elissa babbles about how McCrae deserves to be there because he screwed up his game.

McCrae is then brought in, and he not explains what happened...and apologizes to Elissa. Will then asks about how they’ve all got along in the jury house, and it’s Amanda versus Elissa and Candice. Yep, we get another stupid “Candyland” mention. Surprisingly, Candice and Aaryn reportedly got along in the house.

WIll brings it back to game talk, as they begin talking about GinaMarie’s supposedly big moves. “The girl has guts”, says Elissa. Not shocking, but Amanda doesn’t agree. Candice then brings up the personal aspects of the game, and how wrong that was. Now I’m getting bored as they move on to talking about Andy. The only surprising comment is that McCrae admits that he would not have taken Amanda to the final two. The Spencer chat isn’t much better, although I’m a bit surprised that Helen stands up for his gameplay. Will finally ends the segment by encouraging them to vote on who they think deserves to win.

After a few adverts...ok, quite a few, it’s time for that final HOH competition. It’s the usual format, where statements from jury members are read. Two possible endings are read, and they have to pick which one is correct. The first question is about Candice, and the most “shocking moment”. They both pick the bed flipping incident, and they’re both correct.

Jessie’s quote is next, and it’s her most “irritating moment”, and they both pick when she didn’t get to come back in the game. They’re both wrong on this one. Question three belongs to Helen, and her most “uncomfortable moment”. Judd pleading for his life was A, while wine-gate is B. A was correct, and Andy gets the point.

The fourth question belongs to Aaryn, and it’s who she would spend a romantic night with - Judd or David. They both pick Judd, and they’re correct “because he has manners”. Question five goes to Amanda, and it’s the moment she doesn’t want friends or family to see. Answer A is none, because that’s who she is, while B is every single one. GinaMarie picks A, while Andy picks B. The correct answer B, so Andy is now up by two, with two to go.

Question six is Elissa’s, and it’s which house guest she is most shocked by, and Andy picks Amanda, while GinaMarie picks Aaryn. Oooh, GinaMarie gets this one correct. It’s now 4-3, as we got to question seven. Judd’s biggest regret is the next question, and they both are wrong.

It’s now time for the last question, and GinaMarie has to get this correct. McCrae is asked about the best thing in the house, and they both pick “free food”. Andy is the new, and final HOH!

A few more adverts later, it’s time for Andy to pick who is going to the final two with him. He tells Spencer that his word means everything, and he’s had an agreement with GinaMarie since night one. Spencer is then evicted, and walks out to talk to Julie.

She starts the questions by asking if his loyalty to GInaMarie shocks him, and he says no as we continue to hear GinaMarie’s mic. Spencer says he has no “hard feelings” over being evicted, and claims to sort of know it was coming as Andy was avoiding him the last couple of days. He’s then asked about being a record-setting pawn, and the segment is already over! He concludes by saying that he’s proud to be a part of his favorite show.

Of course, there are more commercials before the jury is brought on the stage. Julie asks who Helen think is the final jury members, and she thinks that the smartest move would be Andy, as he’ll have the most votes. Spencer is then introduced, and Julie informs the rest of the jury what happened.

We move right to the jury questions, and Amanda goes first. She says GinaMarie did little before joining the Exterminators, and asks her what big moves she did, outside of getting her out. GinaMarie responds with nonsense for awhile, before saying it was getting her out. Ooops. GinaMarie doesn’t back down, though, as it was her decision to do before the Exterminators. Ok then.

The next question is from Elissa, and it’s the same question. His answer is that his biggest move was aligning with Amanda and McCrae, and how nobody knew how close they were. He says he kept going back to them with the info on what was happening. Oh, and also convincing her to put up Nick.

Helen goes next, and asks GinaMarie what her biggest obstacle to overcome was. Yep, we get the “play with my heart” silliness, and then says that Nick’s departure was her biggest obstacle. Somehow, though, it made her a bigger person.

McCrae then asks about how jury members are bitter when they’re stabbed in the back. Since he stabbed them all in the back, why should anybody vote for him? He responds that he feels terrible, and that he “said that to cover his own ass”. He deserves to win this, and that he was instrumental in every eviction. He’s sorry, and “loves them all so very much”.

Oh boy, here we go. Candice gets to ask GinaMarie a question, and she doesn’t hold back. She points out how she’s offended everybody on the jury, especially with her “cock-a-roaches” comments. “Why should we give you the money?” GinaMarie responds with more Nick talk, and then says that the money would change her and her family’s life. Yep, she throws in a heart comment, and how positive she always is. She’s ridiculous.

Jessie then asks Andy why he “unnecessarily” lied to so many jurors. He repeats how he loves them all, and he apologizes again (oooh, this plays right to Helen). They’re both just repeating themselves at this point.

The questioning ends with Spencer, and he asks Andy why he should give him the money. Here we go again. Andy says he was “loyal to a fault”, and then says that on night one he made his promise to her. It’s proof that he’s so loyal.

Before the voting, we get final pleas. GinaMarie tells the jury they all look beautiful, and says she’s played loyal from the beginning. She claims that she made a connection with all of them, and she’s happy she’s met them all. Please, somebody stop her!

Andy goes next, and he says he played with both his heart and mind. He meant all of his personal connections, but he played primarily with his mind. He made moves, and adapted to everything that happened in the house. “Everywhere I went in this house, people went home because of me.”

Julie finally shuts them up, and the voting begins. They all give the usual comments as they place their keys about voting for the best player, blah blah blah. Judd does exclaim, “let the best exterminator win!” McCrae adds that he hopes whoever wins “is buying drinks tonight”.

Before the votes are read, though, we get a brief segment with the pre-jury evictees. Before going to them, she flips over to Amanda and her obsession with knowing about the status of MVP. She says she now believes it was America, and Julie explains how it worked. “Thank you, America”, Amanda says sarcastically. She adds that when she got booed on eviction night, she now understood how she was nominated.

Julie then goes over to Howard, and what he was seeing on the feeds after he was evicted. Howard says that he was shocked, and that he was infuriated by the racial and personal things that was said during the season. Julie informs them that various things they’ve said made national headlines, and asks Spencer his response. He says that he hates that stuff, and asks if he said anything. “We don’t have enough time”, she replies.

Jeremy is then asked what surprised him the most, and he says it was Helen’s use of the “mom thing”. Helen then claims that her tears were real, but eventually admits that some were fake. All I can say is “STFU Helen”. (As we go to jury, we hear GinaMarie scream for Nick. Ugh.)

If you haven’t watched, you can probably guess how the votes will go (and if they don’t go the way I’m thinking, this recap is going to look stupid). Here we go. Spencer and McCrae voted for Andy, but Judd voted for GinaMarie. Elissa voted for Andy, as does Andy. Aaryn voted for GianMarie, but Helen voted for Andy to make him the new winner!

The two then rush out to confetti and hugs, and GinaMarie rushes to Nick (obviously). Poor guy. More commercials interrupt the hugfest, and when the show returns Julie announces that the other two votes went to Andy. He won 7-2. Nick is then mentioned again before Julie announces that the top three vote getters for MVP were Judd, Elissa, and Howard. The winner, as expected, is Elissa, who started screaming before Julie even read her name. Of course she did. Gross.

So that’s it for the show...and the season. Thank you all for putting up with me, Ash, Target John, Indy Mike, and East Side Dave this year. A special thanks also to Colette Lala for her work on the Big Brother Gossip Show, and please read her excellent Survivor updates at colettelala.com.

But we still want to hear from you. What did you think of this episode? Do you agree with Andy’s victory? How about Elissa’s MVP? Tell us what you think!!!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 28 Recap

This is it. It’s a night a good percentage of the Big Brother community is waiting for. A cute (former) model is about to walk out the door, not knowing that she’s been face of Aryan culture for the past two months.

Unfortunately for the blood thirsty, it’s unlikely she’ll actually get her true comeuppance tonight. She is headed to the jury house, after all, so Julie Chen can’t mention anything that’s happening in the “real world”. Will bad behavior be discussed? Certainly, but not at the level that would have happened a few weeks ago before the ousted headed to jury. You’re just going to have to wait for the finale to see how CBS handles her...and others.

Before we get to that moment, though, we have a replacement nominee to discuss. Amanda, the veto winner, took down her man, and Elissa put up Andy as his replacement. Elissa explains that she really wanted Amanda out this week, but she had to put up Andy because she knows he’s been working with her. Aaryn adds that this makes it the end of the “3 A.M.” alliance, and she has a bad feeling that she will be the one going home “because Andy has deals with almost everyone here”. Andy admits that he’s “freaking out”, and he really needs Amanda and McCrae’s votes. He adds that it is also the “beginning of a new plan that I have for myself that does not involve Amanda and McCrae”.

Elissa is now shown in the kitchen, and you can hear a New Year’s Eve party buzzer thing (what are they called?). “I’m back”, yells Amanda. “Hey Elissa. How are you, angel?” Elissa ignores her as Amanda continues to hover over her. “I’m very threatening and scary.” She asks her why she doesn’t look like any of her pictures. “How many doctors did it take to make your face look like that?” Elissa giggles and walks away. “I’m not about to be manipulated by a girl like her”, she says in the diary room. Amanda continues to talk as Elissa heads into the HOH.

Amanda is now seen in bed, asking the other boys why everybody is being nice to her. “I’m the only one standing up to this bitch, and everybody else is hiding in my shadow being, nice and kissing her dumbassed, cologenic injected face.” Spencer tells her to chill out, and Amanda continues to yell about her. “I want to punch her in her fucking face.” Andy complains in the diary room that she’s acting “appalling”. He says he’s not going to talk game with anybody, and Amanda says her next target is anybody seen chatting to her.

Time for a bitch session. GinaMarie is flapping her gums about Amanda to Judd, Spencer, and Andy, but I can never understand what she’s saying. Spencer calls her “repulsive”, and wants things to change. They just can’t have the two of them at the end, so Andy says they should just “cut ties” and go for their individual games. Judd says they should call themselves “The Exterminators”, and of course GinaMare loves that!

Aaryn is now talking to Amanda, who says she did everything she could to get GinaMarie up instead of Andy. She explains that Andy was with them long before Aaryn, so that’s where their loyalty lies. In the diary room, she explains that she also trusts Andy more than Aaryn because she chose Judd in that last veto comp. If she only knew what Andy was plotting. Aaryn whines a bit about how much work she’s done for nothing. “I did (the work) for people who won’t even keep me safe.” Amanda then starts crying, and then crawls into her bed to cry. “You still have two more days. You never know what’s going to happen.” The only way Aaryn can stay is to get the votes of Spencer, GinaMarie, and Judd. “This is going to be hard.” Impossible, actually.

She attempts to work it anyway, and first goes to GinaMarie, who promises her a vote. In the diary room, GinaMarie says she has to make fake alliances with both nominees. Aaryn then tries to work on Judd and Spencer, who says he has “concerns about your loyalties”. He adds that her past HOH’s furthered other’s needs, but she counters that she only did that to survive. Spencer and Judd both say they have to think about it, so Aaryn says she needs to start throwing some people under the bus.

Aaryn then tries to work on Amanda and McCrae again, pointing out that she’s done so much more work than he has. She points out that they have the two biggest targets on their backs, and that everybody is going after them. When she mentions Spencer’s name, Amanda gets a bit upset. She calls him over to the couch, and asks him if that’s true. “She’s full of shit”, he replies. Aaryn tries to refute him, but it goes nowhere. “Nobody trusts anything you say”, he tells Aaryn, before wandering back over to the hammock to report to Andy. Aaryn continues to fight for her side, and Amanda asks if she’d take them to the final three. So now we get that footage that makes the upcoming eviction vote appear to not be a slam dunk.

Ugh, a Dan segment is next??? NOOOOOOOO! I’m not recapping anything what that asshole has to say.

And now we have more bullshit with Brendon, Rachel, Jeff, Jordan, Dom and Danielle???? Nope, not watching that idiocy either.

After that silliness, Julie talks to the house. She welcomes Judd back to the game, and asks him how things have changed since his return. He babbles about how it’s the same people, but a couple are gone, so “they really did me a favor while I was gone”. Ok then. Amanda is then congratulated for her first victory, and is asked about “verbally taunting Elissa”. She replies that “Elissa really pushed my buttons”, but she has since apologized. “Now the house guests knwo not to push my buttons.” That’s not going to get a good response in the online world. Elissa is asked to respond, and she complains that Amanda took it past “game-related things”. That’s about all I understood from her lengthy non-answer.

Julie then wastes some more time talking about how twitter is so obsessed with the dirtiness of the bedroom. A picture is shown, and Spencer is asked why it’s so dirty. It’s a dumb question, so I’m not going to bother to state his reply. Oh wait, this is funny. “Thank you for asking me a question, by the way. It’s only been about ten weeks.”

It’s now crunch time. Aaryn gets the first final speech, and she tells everybody at home how much she misses them. She babble some more, and says she respects their decision. Andy then quotes Abraham Lincoln, but his joke falls flat. Even his Anderson Cooper quip stinks.

Voting then begins with Judd, who votes to evict his “little Texas tornado”. Spencer also votes against Aaryn, as does a crying GinaMarie, Amanda, and McCrae. Aaryn is out by a unanimous vote!

We have to endure more commercials for the much-anticipated meeting between Julie and Aaryn. It’s a peaceful departure, as she hugs everybody (including lengthy ones with Elissa and GinaMarie), and actually gets some cheers as she comes out. Oh yeah, and a few catcalls.

Wow, we don’t get the usual stupid footage of the house staring at the picture wall. Julie announces they have a lot to talk about, and she is then asked about the unanimous vote. Aaryn says that she believes Amanda and McCrae kept Andy over her because of her competition success. But why not GinaMarie, and Aaryn explains that the unanimous votes are so that they don’t become targets. Ugh.

Julie then brings up Elissa and their rocky relationship. Aaryn says that at first they were friendly, but the lie about not being Rachel’s sister brought on some animosity.

Ok, here we go. “In the early days of this game, you said some pretty harsh things about your fellow housemates.” Julie adds that Amanda even attempted to let her know that some of the things she said were being interpreted as racist. It’s not a good answer. Aaryn complains that since she’s southern, things have been taken out of context. “I do not mean to ever come off as racist. That’s not me, and I apologize to anyone that I’ve offended for that.” (Note, you can hear people in the audience laughing at that dumb response.)

Julie then reminds her that everybody going into the house knows that they’re on the internet, and proceeds to read some of the things she stated. Oh yeah, this isn’t going to end well. As the audience laughs, she says she doesn’t remember saying any of those things.”That was not meant to be serious, and I feel horrible for that. I regret that.” Julie follows that up by asking if the experience has taught her anything. Clearly flustered, Aaryn just spits out a few words about how her and Andy, Candice, and Helen are “great friends”.

The segment ends with the usual goodbye messages. Judd says that he thinks that she is “awesome”, but that “I feel that you are playing for Amanda and McCrae to win this”. Amanda says that this is the toughest eviction for her, and she loves her like a sister. Elissa then says she has “nothing to say to you except have fun in the jury house. Or don’t.” Interesting, as just a few minutes ago Elissa acted like she was her best friend. GinaMarie ends it by saying that she loves her. “You’ll always be my BB bunny.”

Julie asks for her final thoughts, and it’s clear the past few minutes are the only thing she is thinking about. She says she feels awful, and that in Texas they joke about things without really meaning it. “I really feel bad that this is how it’s being seen, and how I’ve come across to people.” Julie then tells her that after she’s home and watches the footage, “you’ll have a whole new perspective on things”.

It’s now time for the next HOH competition, and they’re wearing bunny ears. It’s called “Big Hopportunity”, and they have to maneuver balls through a maze. The first to collect a dozen “eggs” in their basket is the new HOH. Their feet are tied together, so they have to hop around the playing field. After they begin, Julie announces that the last place finisher will have to wear a chicken suit for 48 hours.

Before we end, Julie announces that on Sunday there will be a “surprise competition”, and that next Thursday will be another double eviction. That should be fun!

Well, that’s it. We leave the show without a new HOH. Who do you think will win? Who do you want to win? What did you think of the interview with Aaryn? Or the return of certain people I will never mention again? Let us know!

Big Brother Gossip Show #307: Monkey Business

It's been nothing but craziness for the past week, so we had lots to cover. In fact, it's by far our longest show to date. Not only do we talk about the results of the various competitions (HOH, POV, etc.), but we also discuss whether Howard did come on to Amanda, or whether Amanda said something questionable earlier today.

You can find this episode at the usual online spots, including iTunes, the Google store, or..

 

Special thanks to my cohosts, Mike and Colette, for their excellent contributions, and for Ash's great help with the audio clips!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 7 Recap

A word of warning to the few who read these recaps. I’ve been in a foul mood all day. Like “screw this world” kind of foul. It will be a miracle if this marathon set of simple words even makes it to the web page, as the laptop could easily be tossed at my television.

Why the anger? Until last night, this eviction looked to be my highlight of the year. The production “plant” was all set to go, and had done absolutely nothing to save herself. It looked like the eviction was going to be a formality, and then maybe this MVP silliness could become a fun feature for the year.

Then a tiny political strategist (supposedly) got into the act. From day one, she had been the person campaigning for Botox Baby, even though she was sitting right next to her on the block. All of her prancercizing seemed to do little good, though, until suddenly out of the blue a young real estate woman took over.

Now it appears that tonight will be my worst nightmare. Unless there were some last-minute reconsideration of the plans, a certain stupidly named alliance will be finished. Which is kind of cool, except that a moron will have been saved and a couple of non-stop babblers will suddenly believe they have some power.

I’m jumping ahead a bit, here, so let’s get right into the show. Like every episode, we kick off where we left off last night, with the replacement of Jeremy with Nick as the third nominee. Jeremy is still confident that Elissa is going home, while Elissa drawwls about how Nick is such a huge threat. Nick doesn’t believe he is in danger. Then we get an overly long, overly dramatic explanation from Helen.

Amanda is then shown talking to Candice, asking about what they should do this week. Candice wants to ensure that a man goes, and Amanda reminds her that her vote is really important. She heads into the have-not room to tell Elissa that she thinks they have the numbers. Helen enters the room, which means that the conversation goes on way too long. Helen is getting suspicious of Spencer, and this vote will show if he’s with them or not.

Now Andy is talking with Helen, who says if Nick doesn’t “go home this week, we can’t win this game”. Andy counters that at this point, that side of the house isn’t going after them. Helen reminds him that as long as Elissa is around, she will be a target. They just have to be ready for the rage of Jeremy, Kaitlin, and GinaMarie.

Now we see Elissa crawling into bed with Jessie (wait, what?), and she tells her how important it is to get such a competitor out of the house. Jessie says that for the whole time she has been dead set on getting her out, but with Elissa now giving her attention she’s reconsidering.

Jessie then heads into the have-not room to talk to Helen. Yeah, it’s a recap of what they already said, and how the biggest, greatest alliance of all time will protect her. Until they don’t, actually.

Everybody is now sitting outside, and Howard heads inside to talk to Nick. He’s worried about the Amanda/McCrae relationship, especially since Amanda is so smart and strong. Spencer wanders in, and Howard leaves. They continue to talk about Amanda, and how they don’t believe McCrae will get her to vote as the Movers want them to.

They pull McCrae aside, and inform him that Amanda is going to figure out the Movers. He tells them “I need you guys to trust me”. He affirms he’s 100% with them, and will cut her out if he needs to. Sure you will.

McCrae goes back to Amanda, who says they have to keep Elissa. Amanda is already getting the vibes that McCrae isn’t telling her something. “I think it just makes sense to keep her here”, she says. McCrae says this week sucks, as he either has to cut loose the Movers or Amanda.

Julie now talks to the house, and the first question goes to Jeremy about not being worried about being nominated. “I was ready.” She then asks about showmances, including those who want to be in one. Yes, that question then goes to Jessie. She’s asked about why there are so many relationships, and she babbles some nonsensical garbage. Julie then reminds everybody that they’re watched and heard 24 hours a day. Amanda is asked if she keeps that in mind, and she says that after awhile you forget about it “all the time”. Aaryn is also asked, and claims that she’s just a “very open person. Everybody who is here knows a lot about me, and so does America now.”

Julie’s response? “Yes, we all do.” With a nice side of sarcasm. This was my highlight of the show. Julie reminds the nominees that one of them will be leaving, and she’ll be back with them later.

With that opening, Julie talks about how some of the comments have stirred up controversy for the show. This is a setup for footage from the house, starting with Candice complaining about things Arryn says in her presence. Howard talks about the white fish/black fish joke she had said earlier, and we get a replay of it. “You can’t play the game like that”, says Howard, who adds in the diary room he’s sensitive about it since he’s from the south. “You feel like there’s a personal vendetta, and that game play could be derailed because of it.”

Amanda replies that she doesn’t think that Aaryn is intentional in those comments. Just ignorant. In the diary room, Amanda says that she is sensitive to these remarks, and heads into the HOH to tell her that people are talking about these comments. Aaryn’s reply? “That’s the most obnoxious, annoying things I’ve ever heard.” Amanda goes on, and Aaryn carries on that she doesn’t care. “I really just think that’s the most immature thing ever. They call me Barbie and all sorts of shit about me being blonde all the time. What’s the difference?”

Oh boy, amanda is pissed. “That really shows her character.” The segment ends with a angry “stay with us” from Julie.

After commercials, it’s eviction time. Elissa goes first, and I don’t really understand anything she says. Actually, she acts like she just won an Emmy or something. “I am a target, but Nick’s the bigger threat.” Nick is up next, and he talks about how much he loves everybody. Helen is last, and she goes on about how she’s a huge Big Brother fan. She throws out a line against Jeremy, too.

The voting now starts with Jeremy, who votes to evict Elissa, as does Kaitlin. Andy, though, happily votes to evict Nick. GinaMarie is next, and votes against Elissa. Judd’s vote goes against Nick, as does Spencer and Jessie. Howard votes against Elissa, though, but McCrae’s big stand is with his girl as he votes to evict Nick! Amanda does the same and Candice. Nick is out 7-4!

Too bad there is a delay before the votes are read, but after commercials Julie reads the results. His eyes widen in shock, and GinaMarie covers her face. Nick hugs Aaryn, and then GinaMarie breaks down before Nick walks out the door.

Before his interview with Julie, we see GinaMarie continue to wail, as Howard consoles her. The rest of the house says nothing. Even after going into another room, we hear her wailing.

Julie asks Nick what is going through his mind, and he says that he believes it’s all Spencer’s fault. The audience doesn’t agree, and Julie asks why he thinks Spencer is controlling the house. He says he thinks everybody trusted him. Julie says that is the case, and if he’s mad about it. Nick says he’s not, and Juie confides that McCrae didn’t vote for him. Nick admits that the Moving Company was a “fake” game, and as you go through the time in the house you develop real game. He’s then asked if the Moving Company is done, and he says that since Amanda has figured it out it probably is over. They just couldn’t keep it secret.

We get the goodbye messages, and McCrae says he had to do it for his game. Jeremy says he doesn’t understand why Nick is gone, and he’s not happy to live another week with this “Phenbot”. Speaking of that creature, she slurs a goodbye to him and other stuff I can’t understand. Helen gives him some platitudes, and says she played a big part in his departure. GinaMarie ends it with how much she likes him. Julie ends it by saying he should have kissed Jessie. “She would have given you a vote!”

So it is now HOH competition time, and we start with a package of footage from last night. The HG’s were awakened a few times during the night with “clues” for tonight’s competition...and certain people didn’t really participate.

Heading to the backyard, it’s a true/false question competition based on the “deliveries” from last night. A wrong answer eliminates you. Judd and Jeremy are out on the first question. So much for that “photoshop memory”, Jeremy! GinaMarie, Andy, Amanda, Spencer and Elissa are out on the second question. Candice goes out next, and everybody left answers the next couple of questions correctly. It’s time for the tie-breaker question, which is the number of “BB Cola” cans “delivered” last night. The answer is 168, and all but McCrae give that answer. The second tie-breaker is how long it took Jeremy to win the second veto competition. Helen is the closest, and is the new HOH...which means we get her super-awkward dance. (BTW, Kaitlin was in second place.) What a different week that would have made!

So that’s it. Nick is gone, and Helen is HOH! America knows that Aaryn doesn’t give a fuck about being labelled a racist, and GinaMarie is considering suicide? Are you happy with these results? Are you glad the Movers are out of business? Or that slurring Elissa is still around? Tell us what you think!
