The Night Owl

Well, GinaMarie did it.  Amanda and McCrae were put up on the block together today and the aftermath went just about the way most of us expected it to go.  First Amanda and McCrae ran to their bed to go talk about whose fault it was (Judd and Elissa of course) then Amanda marched to the HOH room.  Upon arriving in the HOH room, Amanda yelled at GinaMarie and told her that they were never coming after her and genuinely wanted to take her to the final four.  Amanda told her over and over and over and over that it didn't make sense to put the two of them up together.  GinaMarie kept her cool and told Amanda that it DID in fact make sense.  She told her they were a power duo and a couple. Two people playing the game together.  She told her she felt that this would make it a more even playing field to separate the two of them so they are not playing for each other. Amanda then told GinaMarie "You just fucked your own game.  You just fucked up! if Spencer or Andy win veto they will take one of us off the block and then whoever the replacement nominee is will go home!"  That sparked a fire in Judd who spoke up and said "So I guess we should all just pack our bags then and push you both to the end?"  Amanda hurled a few more insults and then ran downstairs to the have not room to cry and tell McCrae how she doesn't even want to be there anymore and how she can't live with these people.  She just wants to leave now!  She can't stand the idea of being apart from him (for two weeks).  etc.. etc... etc..

There was some more time spent in bed and then Amanda went off to find Andy in the storage room who she still believes is on her side and will take her off the block if he winse veto.  She started crying and talking about Elissa saying she couldn't stand to spend another week in the house with her "joker face" etc..  and Andy mosty just said "yeah, but don't give her what she wants.  Just try to squash it."  While they were talking, Elissa listened outside the door until Amanda got wise to her listening and tried to bust the door open on her.

Most of the rest of Amanda and McCrae's night was spent not saying anything other than comforting words to each other in their bed.  There was also a lot of laying in silence.  The only thing they did outside of that was go to the bathroom once, eat once, and Amanda went up to the HOH room crying and apologized to Judd, Elissa, Spencer, and GinaMarie saying she knows she is leaving and she loves all of them.  She asked them not to blame her actions on McCrae who so wants to be there.  The two of them still have no idea that McCrae is the target. They just assume that Amanda is the one going home...but really, they just laid in bed all night for the most part.  I was starting to think mirrors  might be needed to check for breath, but in the wee hours of the morning they popped up for a short but relatively normal chat/joke talk with Spencer, Andy, and Judd.

After the storage room event, Andy started to get really spooked about the idea of Elissa sending him out of the house after she started needling him about what he said to Amanda and why.  She acted suspicious and Andy talked to Spencer about it a while later.  He and Spencer agreed that if one of them got HOH they might need to put Elissa up next to one of their own alliance so they could get rid of her first and then just deal with Amanda next.  I'm not sure if Andy is still on that same page though as after some booze later on in the night, he and Elissa had a really long heart to heart and agreed that they totally trust each other.  I am sure he still wants her out, but I'm not sure if he wants her gone next or if his fears were eased.

While McCrae and Amanda laid in bed together, the other HGs drank, played Jenga, ate dinner, and cut up with each other.  They started calling Judd the "Slutty Chicken" because his chicken costume is now so ripped it won't stay on.  They teased GinaMarie about how broken she is now that her toe is broken along with her hurt back and finger.  And the night for the most part was relatively strategy talk free.

There WAS a little bit of gaming for a while between Spencer, Judd, and Andy in the cockpit.  Most of it was just going over what they already have about doing what they need to do in order to win veto and send McCrae  home, but a few new things popped up here and there. They decided that if McCrae or Amanda does win veto and come off the block, it would be a good idea for Spencer to be the replacement nominee so they can just vote out whichever of the two is left up and not piss Elissa off yet.  That way Elissa stays focused on getting out the other member of McCranda instead of getting mad at all of them for putting her up and coming after two members of The Exterminators.

That's pretty much it as far as the game talk went.  Now it's all up to vet and what happens after that.  Part of me kind of hopes that McCrae wins veto so that Amanda goes home instead, but that is from a personal standpoint as I do like McCrae more than her.  From a strategy point of view, it is better for Judd, GinaMarie, Spencer, and Andy to get rid of McCrae and leave Amanda begging to go to jury right after him.  After seeing the way Amanda acted today about the game and her worries about being on the block, I honestly think she may use the veto on McCrae if she wins it.  She is extremely worried about him going to jury first and being there with Jessie and Aaryn.

Either way, even if neither of them wins it, it should be an interesting day.  If Andy somehow accidentally wins it, he knows he is screwed.  He won't be able to use it because of the current alliance he is loyal to, but that could potentially turn Amanda on him and keep her from going after Elissa.  Anyone else who won will likely just be subjected to bartering by Amanda and McCrae to use it, but likely won't.  We shall just have to see how it plays out.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Crazy, Crazy, CRAZY!!  They are ALL out of their minds and have been at it nonstop for most of the day and night.  I don't even know how to begin explaining all that happened, so I will just try to hit the high (and really low) points.

When I fired up the feeds today the veto comp was already underway.  When the feeds returned we learned that it was the Zingbot veto comp and that Amanda had won.  I think we were all kind of expecting that to happen.  No, I do NOT think it was rigged. I just think that in BB, typically if a lot of the HGs don't want someone to win, they usually do. IE Elissa winning HOH this past week. I think this year may see the end of the Zingbot comps, or maybe they will just start doing them at a different time in the season, because this one was as rough as last year.  Last year the person wearing the Zingbot costume had a heat-stroke and fainted.  This year Judd threw up and had to be put on oxygen, and some of the others required oxygen and medical attention because they couldn't breathe.  Heat is not a friend to the Zingbot comps.

One would THINK that winning veto and being able to keep both herself and McCrae safe would make Amanda happy, but ohh no, not until she is in complete control of every move made by the HOH can she rest.  Amanda does not want anyone but Judd or GinaMarie going up next to Aaryn on the block because she wants to be able to keep Aaryn.  Elissa wants/wanted to put Andy up because she felt that Amanda and McCrae would not vote Andy out in order to keep Aaryn (which is true).  Amanda created an elaborate scheme to fool people. She marched up to the HOH and told Elissa that she HOPES she puts up Andy because no one else will, and that she is keeping Aaryn no matter what and so will McCrae.  She told Elissa that everyone likes Andy so this is the perfect opportunity to vote Andy out.  Elissa remained mostly unaffected and jus tkind of made fun of Amanda saying that to her face.  After Amanda went back outside, Elissa came down and saw her sitting and talking game with Andy.  She asked her if she was telling Andy her latest scheme to vote him out.  THe truth is, Amanda was in fact telling Andy that  he needed to act like she told him she was going to vote him out.  (it's already confusing and I just started).

Anyway, Andy ran into the house and went in the cockpit and started fake crying to Elissa and telling her that Amanda said she was going to vote him out, but the only way to make sure Aaryn went home was to ptu up GinaMarie.  Elissa told Andy she wasn't sure if he was just faking and in on the scheme or not, but that she didn't want him to go home, she just wanted to assure that Aaryn went home.

A little while after this, many fireworks happened here and there between Amanda and Elissa.  Elissa while giggling told Amanda that she threw the competition to her to help her stay safe (in order to annoy her).  Her plan worked, and Amanda got all fired up and started yelling about how ridiculous it was for anyone to say that etc...  Then she told Elissa that she looked plastic and started insulting her husband and kids etc... as Amanda does.   Elissa brought up Amanda telling everyone she was pregnant during the sequester time before the show, and asked her why she would still come on the show after losing a baby and then immediately hookup with someone who wasn't her boyfriend the first week.   Blows like this were exchanged throughout the night for a while until they got booze and they went into their separate groups to talk trash about each other to other people.  Amanda strutted around wearing the veto necklace while doing this...I just couldn't leave that part out.

At some point Judd talked first to Andy and Elissa up in the HOH room about making sure that Andy stayed if he went up.  Elissa told everyone she was convinced that GinaMarie would be voting out Aaryn with everyone else, and Judd even said he would offer GM is $5k to vote against Aaryn.  Andy was still nervous about the idea of going on the block though and also still playing it up for the two of them, and exited the HOH in kind of a huff.  Judd then talked to GinaMarie downstairs in front of Andy and started asking her if she would vote Aaryn out.  GinaMarie was non-committal about it (because she will never vote against Aaryn).  GinaMarie had also had a LOOOONG mind bending chat with Amanda during all the fighting, and was starting to distance herself from Elissa a little.  She told Judd "I can't vote out my BB bunny"  when it was just the 2 of them, and that got Judd thinking. What he did not realize is that what he was thinking is exactly the plan that Amanda wanted.

Judd went to Andy and Spencer and asked them if they would vote out Aaryn and they both said they would and swore to it.  Judd said maybe Elissa SHOULD put up GinaMarie since that's the only vote they are not sure about.  He ran the idea by Elissa and told her why.  She asked Andy and Spencer about their votes if she put up GM, and made them swear by them, and they all had a really REALLY long talk about all working together to get Amanda out of the house in the upcoming week. Everything SEEMED to be right on track.

Judd went outside where Amanda, McCrae, and Aaryn were trahsing Elissa by the hot tub, and Amanda tried to get into it with Judd, with Aaryn jumping in like the good lapdog that she is.  Amanda kept pointing out "you hate me. I can tell.  I didn't do anything to you that everyone else in this house didn't do.  It was Helen and Elissa that wanted this for you"  blah blah blah blah blah.  Judd wouldn't take the bait and just kept telling her he didn't want to bring up old wounds, but he did mention that he saw the tape where she smiled really big when Aaryn nominated him.  Aaryn kept throwing in something about how he had used the term "BB Bunny" in a condescending way towards her (WHAT?!).  So help me, it was the dumbest thing she has said since "the most offensive thing you can do to a Texan is sit on their hat." 

While this half argument was going on, Andy and Spencer talked to each other in the cockpit alone for a few minutes.  They agreed that they really DO want Aaryn gone this week and that they were just going to have to tell Amanda "Look, we are voting her out and that's just how it is."  Andy also told Spencer that truthfully he is leaning more towards working with Judd and Elissa than with Amanda and McCrae, and that if he got HOH he thinks he would have to put Amanda and McCrae up so they could get Amanda  out of the house, because it is time to cut her loose. They both agreed that even though they had been scared about Judd coming back in the house, they both feel now that it's the best thing that could have happened, and perfect timing for going after Amanda.

Judd went and talked to GinaMarie a little bit and told her he didn't know if she would go up or not, but that if she did, for her not to worry because she was staying.  He promised her he would never directly put her up and told her how grateful he was to her for being one of the only 2 people that did not want him out when he got evicted.  Aaryn came in and started telling lies and talking bullshit as usual (this really is all Aaryn does.  She mostly runs to Amanda and just makes things up out of nowhere.  It's really strange).  She told GinaMarie to go and have a chat with Elissa.

Judd went upstairs to tell Elissa what was going on  and warn her that Aaryn had told GinaMarie to come and have a conversation with her.  This is when Elissa lost her marbles again.  Elissa decided that Judd was working with Amanda/McCrae/Aaryn again.  I have NO idea where this came from, but she was clearly angry about it.  Judd tried to tell Elissa that wasn't the case and explained to her all the reasons he can't stand them now and wants Amanda out and wants Aaryn out.  Elissa wasn't having it.  Judd gave Elissa the gold coin he keeps with him that his mom gave him and told her that if he was lying she could keep it. Then Andy came in the room.  Andy confirmed everything Judd was saying about being anti-Amanda and Aaryn now and wanting to vote Aaryn out.  Elissa did not believe them and dismissed them from her room saying she was going to bed...but she didn't.

Elissa decided to hold court with GinaMarie and told her that Judd wants her up on the block SOOO bad because he wants Elissa and GM to turn against each other...which is NOT true at all.  Judd really wanted to work with GinaMarie, Elissa, Andy, and Spencer.   Elissa told GinaMarie that she is NOT putting her up, but that she is pretending she is going to and then she is putting Andy on the block anyway.  Putting Andy up won't send him home, Aaryn will still go, but Elissa's perception of what is happening is WAAAY off the map.  GinaMarie TOLD Elissa she will vote out Aaryn.  Whether she actually will or not, I don't know, but Amanda and McCrae are not going to vote Andy out, so really it won't matter in the end except that now Judd won't have the original support he did from GinaMarie and Elissa.

Spencer and Judd are still awake just talking about past things and about wanting Amanda out.  A few others are still awake as well, but things seem to be winding down for the night.  So much game happened tonight it's hard to keep up, and I LOVE it.  I am loving the fact that the feeds are not boring again. 

I know a lot of people tweeted me in anger about Judd working with Andy and Spencer tonight, but honestly, what could he do?  He can't just work alone with Elissa who can't play for the coming HOH, especially because she is bat shit crazy and stops trusting people out of nowhere for weird ass reasons.  He has to have someone, and he can't work with and doesn't want to work with Aaryn/Amanda/McCrae.  So there it is.  I think it was sort of a wise choice with his only mistake being telling Elissa to put up GM instead of Andy..which he really had good intentions about.

It's time for me to wind down now myself so I can gear up for another day of non-stop gaming.  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Wow wow WOW!! What a night!!  I will try to gloss over the early day and evening stuff so I can get to the juicy bits for you.   Early in the day McCrae and Aaryn were nominated.  Elissa had stated to everyone that Aaryn was her target, but as I said before, I was hoping she had a bigger plan.  Elissa made a deal with Judd to work with him for as long as they could toward the end, and Elissa told him she was so happy he was back and confided in him her plans. 

Aaryn moped around knowing that she could quite possibly be going home, and despite everyone telling her to just be quiet and they have the votes to keep her, she still for some reason ran to the ONE person who wouldn't and couldn't help her....Amanda!  She told Amanda she was so pissed that Judd was back in the house and got his key. She told her she was sure that GinaMarie had a deal with Elissa (which she kind of does, but not the kind of deal Aaryn was thinking).  Amanda and Aaryn bitched and whined to each other and laid around for most of the evening.

While Amanda, Aaryn, and McCrae were laying around, GinaMarie had a very very long conversation about Aaryn and about Amanda.  Elissa told GinaMarie a lot of the things Aaryn has said about her and they both agreed for the most part that Amanda was a huge part, if not all of the problem between the girls in the house. 

Cut to a little while later and Elissa has a DR session.  when she came out of the DR session she caught Judd in the bathroom hallway and asked him what he thought about the idea of getting rid of Amanda instead.  He said he was on board.  She asked him if he thought it was a better idea than getting rid of Aaryn, and he said definitely.  So she sent him to go get Aaryn and send her up to the HOH room.

When Aaryn came into the HOH room, Elissa just came right out with it: "I think we should just put everything behind us and work together and get Amanda out."   She asked Aaryn if she would be on board and of course Aaryn said yes.  Elissa told her that she almost wanted to win the veto herself just to prove to Aaryn how serious she was, but that she still wanted Aaryn to fight like crazy for it.  They had a long talk in which Elissa told her that she felt like Amanda was the problem between the two of them and she really wanted to see if they could work together with Amanda out of the house and not in the middle of them.  It's honestly one of the only times I think I've ever seen Aaryn not scowling.

A little while after Aaryn found out about what was going on, she only had time to fill GinaMarie (who already knew) on a little bit of it when the feeds were cut to fish so they could draw players for the veto competition.  Elissa told Aaryn in their discussion that if she gets HG choice she could do whatever she wanted to, but that she might want to consider picking Judd over GM as he is a little stronger in competition and she knew for a fact Judd would take Aaryn off the block.  Earlier in the night Amanda had told Aaryn that she had to pick HER to play for her (why Amand though Aaryn would pick her is beyond me.  Yes, I pick you so you can play for you and yoru boyfriend and not me..).  While picking Amanda might be a smart move because she has yet to win anything, Aaryn went with Elissa's plan instead.  When the feeds returned, chaos had ensued.

Spencer was complaining because he did not get drawn. McCrae and Amanda were freaking out about Aaryn picking Judd to play for her.  Everyone was essentially going a little nuts.  Once Spencer calmed down, McCrae came into the cockpit to bitch about the situation and about how he didn't think Elissa looked happy when she drew Amanda's chip to play. Everyone was making their own argument for their own problem at once and also wondering if it would be a night comp or a morning comp.  I preferred the Judd response.

Just when all the boys in the cockpit were starting to get settled down, Amanda started her mad pacing through the house watching for anyone who might be talking game.  She passed by GinaMarie and Elissa drinking at the kitchen counter a few times and mean mugged them until Elissa finally spit her drink out (literally) in a fit of giggles.  This sent Amanda off.  She thought they were whispering to each other, and so she started yelling really loudly to Elissa that GinaMarie had talked more shit about her than anyone else in the house etc..  GinaMarie fought right back though with a "And you never said ANYTHING about her though, huh?"  It got louder and louder until all you could hear was GinaMarie yelling over Amanda, and Elissa took GM by the shoulders and told her to just stop because it was what Amanda wanted. 

Amanda and McCrae retreated to their bed so that Amanda could talk about how much she hates all the "phony ass kissers" in the house and talk about how she would never do that and how REAL she is. (lol I'm not even trying to be funny..this joke just makes itself).  GM came in and apologized for getting loud and told her that they really were just laughing at her pacing and making faces at them. 

Amanda still on a mission marched up to the HOH to "talk" to Elissa.  She started with her usually loop "I've been the only one there for you." "I saved you" "They hate you" "They are all terrible people and you only have me."  She ended in tears and sobs asking Elissa if she was going to be "backdoored (even though you can't be backdoored if you are playing in veto).  Elissa literally could not contain herself.  She started laughing and she couldn't stop.  A few times Elissa tried to hold in the idea of Amanda going up, but every time Amanda asked she kept bursting into giggles.  After a while of Amanda's ranting, Elissa told her she was going to bed and they would just have to talk about it later and sent Amanda and McCrae from the room.

Amanda of course started whining and complaining to McCrae, and Aaryn when she could find her about Elissa laughing at her.  She also kept trying to convince Aaryn that Aaryn needs to let HER win the veto so she can take McCrae off and then convince everyone to keep Aaryn

While Amanda went through her motions and loops, the rest of the house studied the memory wall together and speculated whether this would be "morphomatic" veto or "How bad do you want it" or something else.

Everyone has gone to bed now, but Aaryn halfway filled in Spencer on what the real plan really was before they went to bed, and Judd let Andy speculate without actually saying anything to him that it would really be the best for all of them if Amanda did not win veto and went home this week.

I really feel bad for McCrae.  The poor guy is on the block for the first time, but as per usually he is forced to try to calm his crazy ass girlfriend down and try to save both of their asses now that she is making so much noise.  At this point he is kind of stuck with her until she leaves because it would be too risky to jump ship just now without actually knowing what the plan is or having a sure fire parachute alliance. 

I do not think the veto will be tonight.  It may be early in the morning, or they may have just done the draw tonight because tension was high and they knew people would explode and lose it.  If the latter, I'm thankful they brought the entertainment.  If anyone playing in the veto (McCrae, Aaryn, Judd, Elissa, GinaMarie, Amanda) besides Amanda wins it, it looks like Amanda might actually be toast this week.  Elissa is nuts and I have no idea what she has in store or if she will keep her sights set on Amanda, but for now I like where this is headed.  Then again, the one person you don't want to win  always does, right?  Either way, this has been a fun evening to watch on the feeds.  There was also a lot of humor and entertainment in between that I didn't have time to write about (thank you Judd).  As always, you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight feed updates.  Here's hoping things get even more nuts after veto tomorrow!! Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present your veto winner:

I know. I was surprised too.  Apparently the veto comp was this year's version of OTEV. OTEV was a love-sick beaver.  From what I have heard on the feeds, Elissa went into beast mode and was unstoppable in the competition even managing to someone half-blacken Andy's eye.

The most hilarious part of this veto win for me is that Helen was jumping up and down, dancing embarrassingly, and arrogantly boasting about how she and Elissa are both staying and Spencer is leaving when in actuality, Helen is definitely still leaving.  The scary part of course is that with Helen leaving on THIS Thursday, she could potentially bounce right back into the house if she wins the competition to re-enter.

Right after the veto comp McCrae and Amanda had a bit of a debate about next week.  Amanda already has her plan in place to ditch Spencer, but McCrae thinks that Elissa is more dangerous since she has now won more comps than Spencer and cannot be controlled once Helen is gone.  I'm pretty sure Amanda will end up winning again as usual, but it's worth noting there was at least a debate about it.

Speaking of Amanda and McCrae, they also had a small tiff when Amanda decided to have a meltdown because....wait for it.....she had not seen enough of McCrae today.  I'm not sure how that's even really possible in the BB house, but she manged to freak out about it.

Helen wasted no time after the veto comp in trying to make a new alliance wtih GinaMarie to secure GinaMarie''s vote.  She is sure that she has Amanda, McCrae, Elissa, and Amanda, but she wants it to be a unanimous vote, so she went to work on GinaMarie.  GinaMarie did her usual "agree with everything but mean none of it" thing and later told Aaryn about the whole conversation.

GinaMarie also had a meltdown tonight.  She was apparently sad that OTEV did not ask any questions about Nick, and "that's all she wanted".  While she was crying to Aaryn about it, Aaryn leaked Andy's suggestion from earlier in the day that the three of them got to final three instead of taking Amanda and McCrae.  Aaryn was not supposed to tell GinaMarie, but I doubt Andy will find out she knows since GM is probably the ONLY one in the house that is good about keeping her mouth shut when it comes to Game info.

Amanda once again told Elissa tonight that Helen is leaving.  She told her it's done and there is no point in her trying to get a campaign together because it will just put a target on her.  Amanda had dropped hints to Elissa before about Helen possibly going this week, but apparently it did not sink in until this time.  I'm curious as to whether in the coming days Elissa will tell Helen or not.  She doesn't really have any reason not to as she has her veto and can't be sent home this week.  She is also much closer to Helen then she is to Amanda, so chances are high she will tip Helen off at some point.

The rest of the night was mostly spent drunkenly (for the ones that could drink) talking over each other and hanging out.  Since Helen has no idea she might be the target, there really isn't a lot of campaigning or gaming going on yet, but I am sure as she gets more paranoid it will ramp up in the next few days.

That's pretty much it. As always,  you guys can follow me on twitter @ashes2ashes13 for more overnight live feed updates.  Until tomorrow night...

The Night Owl

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.

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...

Aliens!!!



BB is repeating the trick from previous season's of "aliens" appearing in the mirrors and windows. Rumor is there's a late-night POV, and I'm sure they'll be incorporating these appearances into it.
