Big Brother Gossip Show #305: Twitter Triumph

It began as a sluggish week, but the excitement level went up after our hero J-U-Double-D won HOH. Tonight's show went through everything that happened after his victory, including our successful online victory against the dreaded Reilly sister. 

Of course, that victory was shortlived, and we hang our heads in shame. We admit our defeat, though, and laugh at the silliness that ensued. Download this now! I said now! You're also not going to want to miss the debut of the new opening theme!

You can grab this at the usual online sources, or through Scott's The Ledge iPhone/android app. Or...

 

Thanks to those that listened live, and also for the contributions of Colette and Mike. I also can't forget our Ash for her wonderful work as Audio Producer!

We Did It!

What a shocking, and hilarious, day! It appears (to some people, at least) that a grass roots effort resulted in success!

To understand what's happening, let's go back to Thursday night's eviction episode. Towards the end of the episode, Julie Chen announced that this week we would be voting for the third nominee instead of a MVP. Big Brother Gossip Show co-host Colette Lala posted on twitter that we should all vote for Elissa, and within minutes the gang here at this board jumped on the bandwagon.

It was great fun for all, as Mike, Barb, and myself posted ridiculous tweet after ridiculous tweet. We were all inundated with replies. Some called us bad names. Others attempted to "correct" us for our "mistake". Most just laughed.

Others joined us in our fun, and it actually became a bit scary as the Brenchel Army attempted to have twitter take away some accounts. For the most part, though, it was great fun, and we all retweeted the highlights of the replies. My tweets became more and more ridiculous, with ties to catladies, orphaned puppies, and Congressional proclamations. Some still didn't get it.

Did we ever believe that our fun would result in what we desired? I can say that I never thought it would happen. Yet earlier today, it was announced that Elissa was indeed the third nominee this week.

Let's analyze this a bit. Nobody believes that Elissa actually got the highest number of votes. That was clearly Aaryn, who was already nominated. The already-nominated Kaitlin may have even received the second highest vote total. If CBS is being honest, that would mean the person with the highest number of votes not already on the block would become the new nominee. That was Elissa.

Even without our shenanigans, she would probably have gone up. For one, despite the fact that the family name guarantees her an advantage in any poll, there are also a ton of people that are not fans of her or her sister. There are also Big Brother purists who are angry at the advantage that she has being Rachel's sister. Then there are those that don't care about her legacy but aren't impressed with her accomplishments this season. Here competition record is 0 for 9, by the way.

Then there are those who didn't read the rules, and just voted for Elissa like they have done this entire season. Chen's announcement was almost an aside. I for one didn't actually hear it until I saw twitter explode. The polls also opened before the West Coast feed aired. The combination of mistaken votes AND anti-Brenchel fans added up to put her where she is this very moment.

It's also probably the correct move, as Elissa has been acting even weirder than normal the last couple of days. She was clearly upset that she wasn't called into the diary room to make her MVP vote last night. She dolled up for nothing! This morning, she had the weirdest conversation I've ever heard when she told Judd that she's a production plant who knows everything that is going to happen. For more on that, and everything else that has happened this week, tune in to the Big Brother Gossip Show at 10 pm ET!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 10 Recap

Tonight marks the end of a reign of terror. No longer will the house cower in fear, waiting for the next chip to fall. They’ll be able to act as they please; to hang around with anybody they want.

You probably are thinking right now that I’m referring to the departure of one of the nominees - Jeremy, Aaryn, or Spencer. Oh no, no, no. The person in question is the current HOH, Helen. For the next few days at least, the rest of the house will be free of scheduled activities, lectures about what America wants, or orders to NEVER EVER consider putting up the Royal Highness of any of her court. Or any of her court’s court. Or any hangers ons of the court.

It’s a night of celebration, even if I do believe we’ll be subjected to one last speech from her. I just know that this is the episode that they’ll reintroduce the HOH interview. Julie will toss her softballs, and then have to cut Helen off as she again wanders off on too many tangents about being a mother.

One piece of good news came out a bit before the show commenced. Apparently, there is going to be “big news”regarding the twist. Does that mean no more fixed MVP??? Please say yes, and please take that botox twit along with it!

I’m getting ahead of myself, though, so let’s go right to where we left off last night. As a result of a Romeo and Juliet version of Sophie’s Choice (or at least the CBS edit did), Kaitlin took herself down knowing that her replacement would be Jeremy.

Ugh Helen does her little victory dance in the diary room as she squeals in joy. “He’s finally leaving this house!” Kaitlin and Aaryn hug, and Aaryn says she’s going to “kiss some butts this week”. Kaitlin says she should feel thrilled, but she’s bummed that Jeremy is up. Jeremy, though, says “it’s not over until it’s over”. Yeah, it’s over.

Aaryn is now in the bathroom with Jeremy, who understands why he’s up but it “sucks because it’s so early”. For some reason, Aaryn tries to sound smart, talking about how it’s just like real life. Both Jeremy and her are being “discriminated against” because they’re pretty and are good at competitions. I can just see the glee in the Big Brother producer’s eyes as he captured that soundbyte. Just put your bikini on, little girl.

In the diary room, Jeremy admits that maybe he was a little bit too gung ho at the beginning, but now he’s going to do whatever it takes to save himself. First off, he’s dressed as a baby to show he’s actually fun. He thinks it “got into people’s hearts”.

While dressed as a baby, he attempts to woo the favor of McCrae and Amanda, who deadpans “I figured he either wanted to breast feed or campaign”. She plays it perfectly, by glancing at her breasts while saying, “thank God he was just looking for some votes”. Good girl.

Jeremy makes his plea, saying that he’d let the two of them make his next HOH picks if they save him. Judd is now with them, and he also says that he’ll think about it. Jeremy then does a handstand across the backyard.

Sexy music comes on as Aaryn starts doing some exercises in front of Jessie, Andy, GinaMarie, and Judd. Her plan is to show that she’s a fun person. She is then shown kissing up to various people, including Helen and Amanda. She even apologizes to Howard for “any comment” she may have made.

Finally, Aaryn walks into a room where people are talking about GinaMarie. “She is nuts”, says Amanda as we get another shot of her crying into Nick’s shorts. They talk about the collection of his garbage that she is treasuring, and decide to hide it. After gathering her stuff, GinaMarie discovers they’re all missing, and completely freaks out. She blames it on Aaryn, first with a smile that turns into dramatic tears. She wanders off and they all giggle. Amanda and McCrae return the items, telling her it’s just a joke. Aaryn is bummed that she didn’t take their fun as a joke.

Amanda then points out to McCrae that while Amanda was a bit of an instigator, she quickly pushed the blame onto them. “Fuck Aaryn”, says McCrae. “Bitch.” Maybe keeping Jeremy isn’t a bad idea after all.

On cue (or editor’s cue), Jeremy heads upstairs to grovel at Queen Helen’s feet. He says he’ll never go against her or Elissa (who is also in the room), and Helen says that he has to cast aside Kaitlin and Aaryn over the two of them. Yeah, right. Helen then says that his attitude has to completely change, and must protect Elissa and Helen. Anything else, Queen Helen? It’s a waste of time, but it gives CBS the footage needed to make it look like somebody else just may go home tonight.

After commercials, Julie addresses the house. Elissa gets the first question, asked if she is enjoying her first week not on the block. I honestly can’t understand her response. Candice is then asked about the events of last Thursday night. Candice replies that she has forgiven Aaryn. Kaitlin is asked how hard it was to take herself down, and the answer is what you’d expect. Howard is next, with a question about his religious beliefs. He replies that it’s hard to deal with the fact that lying is a part of the game, and that “I’m feeling better about it”.

Now we finally get a family portion of the show, and it is Amanda and McCrae’s folks! A bit of a disclaimer here. I’ follow Amanda’s dad and sister on twitter, and find them to be a treat. I’m not going to apologize for being a proud friend here. After some cutesy footage of the pair, we move to McCrae’s family cheering him on as he makes out with Amanda. His dad describes him as “unique”, and how he and his mother has been diehard fans for years.
Time to move on to the Zukerman’s. Her mom says that she has dated “quite a bit”, and all kinds. Her dad adds that she always gets what she wants. A little tiff is then shown between the pair, and Andy says they should get married. McCrae’s dad complains that Amanda “wears the pants” in their relationship. Amanda’s mom does hope there is more to McCrae than pizza delivery. A fun little segment.

More commercials before we move to the final pleas. Jeremy goes first, and he pretty much concedes that he’s a goner. He says that he played too hard, and throws in some reference to poop for some reason. Aaryn is next, and thanks her family but says she’ll respect any house decision. Spencer thanks a bunch of people, including Dave Grohl. Wait, what???

Voting then starts with Candice, who votes to evict Jeremy, as does Andy, Howard, and Elissa. Kaitlin, though, votes to evict Spencer as does GinaMarie. Wait, GinaMarie actually voted against Jeremy! Amanda also votes against Jeremy, as does McCrae (for eating the last pizza in the house), Jessie, and Judd. Jeremy is out 9- 0 -1!

We have to wait, though, before his eviction. Julie announces the vote, and Jeremy is up before she’s even done. He’s pretty calm, hugging everybody and saying “it’s nothing personal”. Saying “where’s my princess”, the last kiss and hug goes to Kaitlin. “Play hard”, he says as he walks out.

There’s no in-house craziness with this eviction, as they all calmly wait for Jeremy’s picture to go dark. We quickly return to Julie and Jeremy, who starts off by asking if his cockiness is why he’s gone. He says that everybody said he had to “calm down, but I’m a winner”. Even Julie thinks this is idiotic, but he says that because of Kaitlin he is walking out a different man. Julie goes on about the bully image, which Jeremy denies with some silliness about being big. God, he’s a moron. Julie won’t let the growing thing die, and we get more of this garbage about “working on his inside”.

Goodbye message time, and it starts with McCrae complaining about his arrogance. Elissa doesn’t have anything to say, which isn’t anything new. Helen does what she does best...lecture. Kaitlin then sadly says she can’t bear to deal without him, but she can’t wait to see him afterwards. Julie asks how excited he will be to see her afterwards, and he says “she better bring home the check”. Classy, dude.

I initially missed this, but I guess this week America is choosing a nominee instead of a MVP??? Wow, interesting. Vote Elissa!

With the eviction over, it’s time for the HOH competition. Earlier this week, there were questions on CBS.com where we were to pick which house guest were best described by a royal character (jester, queen, etc.) Well, kinda like that. More like “who is the queen of clumsiness” type of thing. It’s called “Big Brother Royalty”, Two names are read for each question, and you’re out if you get it wrong. Pretty much like last week’s competition, really.

The first question is about the “Earl of Egotism”, and everybody correctly picks Aaryn. The second question is the “Lord of Laziness”, and Andy, Amanda, Candice, and Elissa incorrectly choose Judd. The third question is the “Baron of Boneheads”, and they all correctly pick GinaMarie. Question four is the “Knight of Naughtiness”, and and everybody again correctly chooses Amanda. The next question is the “Duke of Dork”, and Aaryn, Jessie, and GinaMarie are now out. The last question is the “Sultan of Sexy”, and Howard and Spencer are now out.

It’s between Judd, Kaitlin, and McCrae for the tiebreaker. Julie asks how many gallons of milk would it take to fill the vats in the scary dairy competition. Kaitlin writes 410, Judd has 650, and McCrae has 600. Judd is the new HEAD OF HOUSEHOLD!!!! Fantastic!

Well, this week should be more entertaining, although I have a feeling he’s going to pay too much attention to the likes of Helen and Elissa. Maybe he’ll surprise us, though. At the very least, I’ll have new material for this week’s Big Brother Gossip Show.

Before we go, though, Julie announces the twist that the MVP is not to be what they think. "Expect the unexpected." Hey, it's better than having Elissa pick somebody!

What did you think? Are you happy that Jeremy is finally gone? Or that Judd is the new HOH? Or that Julie did NOT do the HOH interview segment? Tell us your thoughts!

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 9 Recap

After Sunday night’s dramatic events, tonight’s show is bound to be a sleeper. It’s going to be chock full of filler, along with the not-so-dramatic reveal of the MVP and the veto competition. Seriously, this is going to be a snoozer of a show, filled with lots of pontificating from the so-called “good people”.

So let’s get this over with. You know the drill. The show starts with the predictable nominations of Kaitlin and Aaryn. The nominees are angry; Helen and her nerd herd posse are thrilled and believe this is the biggest move in Big Brother history, especially if she can put her real target up as a replacement nominee.

Jeremy is in the bedroom now with Kaitlin, who says she’s not worried. Jeremy knows that he’s probably the third nominee, or will go up as a replacement. “There’s no doubt in my mind.” Kaitlin is a bit more upbeat, as she says everybody is after Aaryn. He says she’s right, and kisses her.

Helen then convenes her nerds up to the HOH to talk about the third nominee. She’s joined by Amanda and McCrae, and informs them of Howard’s lie. Yet, it’s Jeremy she wants out, but she wants to “backdoor Jeremy with a smile on our faces”. Amanda is pushing for putting up Howard instead of Spencer, with Jeremy as the replacement.

Helen now meets with Spencer, who knows he has to spill the beans about the Movers. She obviously already knows, and thanks him for finally informing her. For some reason, she starts bawling about how this alliance “makes me look like an idiot to America”. In the diary room, she claims to be faking all of her house tears, but I don’t buy. She gives Spencer a lecture, and they hug and he walks out. Judging by the diary room, though, Spencer seems to be buying her act.

Spencer heads downstairs and informs Howard that Helen does know about the Movers, and her feelings are hurt. Uh oh. “I don’t know if I’m going to be able to face them”, he says.

Ugh, MVP time, and our winner is dolled up again. “Shut up”, says Elissa as she enters the room, and I wholeheartedly agree. “Oh my gawwwwwwsh.” Why she has to read that same script for the third week is above me, but whatever.

Elissa is now talking to McCrae about the MVP, and Amanda walks in as she talks about how it’s going to kill her to put up Howard. Amanda says she HAS to put him up, and Elissa complains about how she supposedly wasn’t involved in that decision. “It’s super frustrating. I feel so used. UGGGGGH!” My feelings exactly. On the ugh. (Conveniently, they edited out the part where they agree to let McCrae pretend he won MVP. This actually is why Amanda is angry a couple of paragraphs down. One simple edit makes a huge difference, folks!)

More Movers talk, as Howard now comes up to confess his sins. Why does it matter? They had an alliance, so what? Why is this whole week focused on this big “lie”? It drives me up the wall. Howard apologizes, and the tears come out from not only Helen but for some reason Jessie. Helen again gives a lecture.

Elissa asks everybody to leave the room, and she then asks Helen if the feelings for her are genuine. She complains that she’s just being used for her MVP’s. “This is as much your HOH as it is mine”, consoles Helen. They conclude it doesn’t matter who is put up, as they’re going to backdoor Jeremy anyway.

Amanda and McCrae are brought back up, and Amanda complains again about putting up Spencer instead of Howard. Elissa whines...and whines some more about how all of the strong guys are going to be against her. Elissa says in the diary room that she doesn’t like her agenda. Amanda’s point is that Spencer is not as big of a threat as Howard, and points out how Howard has not voted with them either week. It’s still a problem for Elissa, as she says she has to do the “dirty work” anyway. We see fake tears as she says “ultimately it comes down to what is good for my game”.

There should be another segment here where Elissa looks like a complete fool after making (but denying) her MVP pick. Oh well, gotta look good to ensure those phony MVP votes!

Time for the MVP reveal, and it is Spencer, who says he knew it was going to happen. Elissa says her only reason to nominate him is because of the “pressure” that Amanda and McCrae put on her. BULLSHIT!!! Helen then pulls out the chips to see who CBS wants to play for veto, and it’s GinaMarie and Candice. Jeremy is pissed because he knows what will probably happen. The host for the competition will be Judd.

Before the competition, though, Spencer and Candice head up to the HOH. Helen tells them that they need to win so that Jeremy can be backdoored. Spencer couldn’t be happier with this plan. Meanwhile, Jeremy knows what’s going on, and is a bit mope-y as he talks to Kaitlin and Aaryn, After he walks out of the room, they continue their whinefest. It would feel awful for them to win veto and be replaced by Jeremy. They actually talk to GinaMarie about winning the veto and not saying it so that he can’t be backdoored. “I want to keep these nominations the same”, says Kaitlin in the diary room. WTF? Actually, I should say WHAT THE FUCK???

Kaitlin is now talking to Amanda about not being pulled off, and Amanda tells her that she’s crazy. Kaitlin thinks that Aaryn would be the one to go home if the noms don’t change, and Amanda says that’s crazy because Aaryn is alone while Kaitlin has Jeremy.

It’s now veto comp time. There are a bunch of pieces of artwork that has house guest pictures in the place of the classic pieces. They have to jump on a trampoline to look over the “wall” to see how the pictures are placed on the wall. The person who recreates that wall in the shortest time wins.

LIke always, I’m not going to recap every description and incident that happens, especially after Candice’s whiny voice slowly reciting her script. GinaMarie gets her panties all wet by seeing a piece involving Nick. The results are in, and Candice’s time was 8:46, while GinaMarie was 8:56. Spencer was 12:19, Aaryn placed at 9:50, but Kaitlin is the new leader at 7:09. It’s all up to Helen, but alas her time was 8:55. Kaitlin is the new veto holder!

It’s apparently a big decision, because taking herself down is going to mean Jeremy is going home. Helen adds to the fake controversy by also complaining. No need to fret, ladies. Amanda already saved the day!

After commercials, Kaitlin and Jeremy are again babbling about her “awkward position”. Jeremy babbles in the diary room that he didn’t come to play a game where a bunch of dumb girls will beat him, so he’s going to use his charms to get Kaitlin to not user her veto. Kaitlin’s idea is to get Helen to put up Howard instead. Good luck with that.

Kaitlin dutifully makes her way upstairs, and Camp Counselor Helen congratulates her on her win. She openly admits that Jeremy is somebody she wants to go up, and if she doesn’t do that “the house will kill me”. Kaitlin says Howard is untrustworthy, and is throwing competitions. Helen agrees, but because Jeremy has treated everybody so badly that the house is making her put him up. In case you forgot, they replay the “winegate” silliness. Kaitlin continues to campaign, and somehow Helen calls her “sweet”. Sweet whore, maybe, but “sweet”? No.

It’s finally starting to sink in that Jeremy is toast, and she takes him into the storage room to give him the bad news. Shockingly, he’s not entirely a dick...and the romantic music comes up as they embrace. In the diary room, Kaitlin complains that she doesn’t want to be in the house without him, and that she doesn’t believe that she’s the biggest target on the block. Maybe she shouldn’t save herself? (Oh God, that has to be scripted!)

It’s finally time for the inevitable. Is there really anybody watching that doesn’t believe she’ll use the veto? Come on, even without the online spoilers it was a ridiculous idea. She does read the script a bit more believably than most of her costars, but she obviously does use the veto to save herself...after a long, long delay. Helen then gets up, and nominates Jeremy.

After the usual little diary room babbling, the episode is over. I have to admit it wasn’t as fluffy as expected, and the Camp Counselor material was kept at a minimum. What did you think? Were you “surprised” by Elissa’s MVP win? Or Kaitlin’s decision to save herself? Let us know what you think!
