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...
