BB 15: Week #4
July 18, 2013 at 6:04 pm #270757
Well it’s another week and we’re all still hanging out, so I think we are all hooked!
Helen did her thing as the last HOH and brought everyone together in a more harmonious household. There is no more distinct division of sides. Jeremy is gone and we have a new HOH, but I don’t know who yet…
We will see who sides with who this week and where the cracks are in all of these alliances depending on who wins this HOH.
Thanks to everyone for making this season so entertaining with all of your opinions and humor!
July 18, 2013 at 6:07 pm #270759
“The hunter has become the hunted”?!?…really Julie? Isn’t it a bit early in the season start phoning it in with cliches like that?
July 18, 2013 at 6:19 pm #270760
It is interesting how CBS is making it look like either Jeremy or Aaryn could go home tonight…
July 18, 2013 at 6:44 pm #270761
OH SNAP OH SNAP OH SNAP
July 18, 2013 at 6:44 pm #270762
July 18, 2013 at 6:46 pm #270763
Ahahahaha this is going to scare the hell out of the houseguests (and Elissa is no longer safe from all harm hahaha)
July 18, 2013 at 6:57 pm #270764
July 18, 2013 at 7:03 pm #270765
Wow, Jeremy sure got off easy with Julie. Hmmph.
July 18, 2013 at 7:03 pm #270766
Incidentally if this isn’t a sign CBS wants Aaryn OUT OF THERE, I don’t know what is. You know she’s going to be an absolute forgone conclusion, if Judd doesn’t stick her up there to begin with. If not her…well, I don’t know – Kaitlin maybe, or GinaMarie – people are sick of her crying.
July 18, 2013 at 7:11 pm #270769
I think people are super sick of Elissa being MVP, hence the audience getting to choose. Aaryn will get nominated anyway. Yay Judd!!!
July 18, 2013 at 7:23 pm #270770
This new “expect the unexpected” BBMVP is CBS’s cop-out..They didnt want to expel Aaryn but the know America has no problem with it…Now if we can just get these idiots to vote the bitch out!
July 18, 2013 at 7:30 pm #270771
If they are told “Hey, America was the MVP this week and nominated Aaryn btw,” I am pretty sure most of the houseguests would be keenly interested in getting rid of the person America doesn’t care for.
Also, I’m really really really really REALLY hoping it works out and she’s nominated via MVP, because oh man will the tears when she realizes “Oh hey America doesn’t LIKE YOU” will be particularly delicious
July 18, 2013 at 7:50 pm #270777
Just got caught up from yesterday. I would be the old guy in the corner checking everyone out and being relatively quiet, (AKA: Stealtheye). When I had everyone figured out, I would be much like Helen was this week manipulating everyone to find out what I already knew.
I think CBS was afraid the MVP thing was becoming too boring with Elisa every week. And I agree, what better way to get rid of Aaryn. Called that one earlier this week.
July 18, 2013 at 8:07 pm #270778
I said from the very begining that America’s choice of MVP wouldn’t necesarily have anything to do with who is America’s favorite, and more to do with picking the person who will likely put the most unfavorite person up on the block. Hope that made sense.
July 18, 2013 at 8:55 pm #270785
I’m voting to evict Elissa. She needs to go because she’s a useless cliche’. She’s being protected by CBS and for what? Aaryn will get her nomination via an HOH. Why waste an MVP vote.
July 18, 2013 at 9:08 pm #270787
Chooch, like CBS would even think about allowing Elisa to be the MVP Nom, Really?
July 18, 2013 at 9:26 pm #270790
I have feeling that now that Judd is HOH, Jessie is going to be all over him.
July 18, 2013 at 9:27 pm #270791
Amanda is already pushing her agenda on Judd. She had Judd, Pizza Boy, Elissa & Jessie in the lounge discussing the plan for the week. Judd will put up Kaitlin and Aaryn, then Elissa will put up Spencer as the MVP nomination. sure does sound like a repeat of last week to me. She wants to make sure that the two girls know in advance that they are just pawns. They’re real target will be howard and if he happens to win the VETO, then Aaryn will be the one evicted. It’s just that simple. Does everyone agree? Of course they do! Elissa wants to get rid of Aaryn but Amanda says it’s a numbers game and she doesn’t have anyone, but Howard has Spencer & Candice… that’s a force of 3. He’s a bigger danger (to her & PB). Jessie thinks Kaitlin’s a big threat because she’s so good at the HOH comps, making it to the end twice now. Amanda poo-poo’s that too, telling her too that it’s a numbers game. Kaitlin’s got no alliance either. Amanda hounds the shit out of Judd about doing things her way and not trusting Elissa with her MVP vote.
When Judd gets her alone, he asks her if they are good with her nomination and she tells him yes, but she not so sure about Julie’s “expect the unexpected” and what it means. Judd says something about the Coup D’état and Elissa says maybe someone is coming into the house. Judd tells her, “We need to know what each other are doing. You have as much power as I do.” Elissa admits that she just feels weird, but maybe it’s because she hasn’t worked out today.
July 18, 2013 at 9:31 pm #270792
Even though I like Elissa as much as I can like someone I have only seen on tv, and she hasn’t really done anything to disgust me like a few of them have, I agree with you Chooch. Mainly because She Hasn’t Done Anything… At least her Sis went balls to the walls during challenges. She does nothing.
I think that she has been picked for MVP time and time again because she telegraphs her target and her target is usually a good one. Nick,Germy,David…
July 18, 2013 at 9:51 pm #270794
I’m pretty sure right now, looking at how it’s all been playing out so far, that if Judd does not nominate GM, GM will likely go up as America’s MVP nom. She’s had bad press too, remember – not as much as Aaryn, and she hasn’t been highlight as much as Aaryn, but the clips are out there and she lost her job, which made headlines just as much as Aaryn’s eviction did.
Right now, Judd is trying to decide who to put on the block. He doesn’t want to stick Aaryn up there because he lied to her a lot – he’d rather put Kaitlin and GM up there. Everyone else is pushing for Aaryn and Kaitlin. If Judd puts up Kaitlin and GM, guarantee you America’s nominee is going to be Aaryn. If Judd puts up Kaitlin and Aaryn, it’ll probably be GM.
Regardless, unless Judd puts Howard up immediately, he may not even end up on the block – but if Kaitlin wins and takes herself off (Frankly, I don’t see GM or Aaryn winning a comp at this point, let’s be real here), they could absolutely backdoor Howard no questions asked.
Now here’s MY question – if America votes for the MVP nominee, and that person wins PoV and takes themselves off, do we get to vote a secondary nominee? Or will they just go down the list according to who had the most votes, and pick the next person in line?
July 18, 2013 at 9:54 pm #270795
The funny part right now is that Judd is spending way, way more time talking strategy with Elissa and making sure she’s on the same page with him than McCrae or Helen EVER did in their HoH’s. He’s actually trying to actively involve her in the process. And it’s all because everyone assumes she’s going to get MVP again. The hamsters learned that Elissa is a useful tool, and now they expect her to work for them automatically – how are they going to react when they find out the useful tool is no longer useful?
More importantly, is BB going to TELL the houseguests that America chose the third nominee, or leave it in the dark? If they just leave it in the dark, holy crap will there ever be a mountain of finger-pointing and accusation-throwing.
July 18, 2013 at 10:00 pm #270796
CBS and BB can’t keep a secret. They will tell them.
July 18, 2013 at 10:11 pm #270797
This is my disappointed there will be no mad chaos face
July 18, 2013 at 10:26 pm #270809
I think they will tell them, too. Especially since Julie, in her best Jedi Mind control voice said “Expect the Unexpected”.
Also, I may be wrong but didn’t Julie mention that if indeed the person America voted for is no longer able to be on the block, then the one with the following number of votes would be the pick?
July 18, 2013 at 10:30 pm #270810
Hi all – I’m watching BBAD – Judd is getting his HOH room. He’s not very excited. But he perked up when he read his letter from home. It was sweet and the first time he cracked a smile.
July 18, 2013 at 10:33 pm #270812
LOL – he has Capn Crunch but not the Booberry cereal he asked for. They only sell that at Halloween, amiright?
July 18, 2013 at 10:35 pm #270813
OK..Did anyone else notice that Germy was instructed to take the long way around to Julie, wasn’t able to get anywhere near the audience and didn’t get to high five folks like most are able to do? They kept him and his cooties far away from the studio audience.
July 18, 2013 at 10:37 pm #270815
I liked him already but my opinion just went through the roof of Judd – his music pick is Red Hot Chili Peppers. I thought for sure it would be country (is that racist? or just elitist? haha).
July 18, 2013 at 10:43 pm #270818
You would be suprised at how many southerners like the RHCP. “I don’t ever want to feeeeel like I did that day..take me to the place I love”…
July 18, 2013 at 11:00 pm #270833
It’s hard with his accent I cannot understand about half of what he says. Too bad I don’t have the same problem with Aryan.
July 18, 2013 at 11:08 pm #270837
Everybody is still gunning for Howard, which I just don’t understand. He’s terrible at the competitions, he’s not a good liar, what is up with that?
July 18, 2013 at 11:20 pm #270841
I think it is all Amanda when it comes to getting Howard out. I think she knows he has Candi and Elissa and Andy.And it scares her. Her big mouth will be the end of her.
July 18, 2013 at 11:30 pm #270850
Eee! Just finished my recap! I think I’m happier Judd is HoH than he is!
July 18, 2013 at 11:55 pm #270860
There’s lots of speculation in the house about what Julie meant when she said “expect the unexpected…” some of the theories that have been thrown out:
-They’ll put a limit on how many times one HG can win MVP or eliminate it
-Double eviction or a returning HG
-GinaMarie (and GM only) thinks that both Nick and Jeremy are going to come back to the house. Seriously. Interestingly, she’s also freaking out about why America thinks she’s stupid.
Judd has been paying a whole lot of attention to Elissa, collaborating on potential nominees, assuming she’s going to have MVP, and giving her the credit that Helen sorta denied her this past week.
July 19, 2013 at 12:53 am #270862
McCrae’s birthday is on Sunday, and he says all he wants for his birthday is to not be a have-not, and to get booze.
Someone suggests maybe he’ll get a stripper for his birthday.
Judd adds maybe it will be “a little person stripper!”
McCrae says he has never been to a strip club, and really doesn’t want to ever go to one – the idea of women being in a position that they have to take their clothes off to make ends meet makes him really uncomfortable.
Spencer agrees with McCrae, he doesn’t really like strip clubs. And then adds they “they don’t like it when you throw quarters at them.”
July 19, 2013 at 1:01 am #270863
Elissa and Amanda are having a heart-to-heart about relationships, how great a guy McCrae is and how much Amanda loves him, and the nature of Elissa’s relationship with her husband when she first met him. And like, Elissa like uses the word “like” like, way too much. It’s like grating on my, like, nerves.
July 19, 2013 at 1:18 am #270866
Judd is assuring Aryan that she isn’t his target, but is suggesting he might use her as a pawn.
Aryan is a little freaked, and is throwing all her allies under the bus – she suggests both GM and Kaitlin as alternatives to her. She also advises Judd to put up Howard & Candice, and says she’s afraid Elissa is going to get MVP again, she’s throwing names out like it’s her JOB.
Judd tells her he would be happy if GM went home this week.
July 19, 2013 at 2:25 am #270867
I was disappointed Julie didn’t ask Asshat Jeremy if he didn’t feel like he’d been “jewed” by the other houseguests (yes, he said it again just yesterday, right before telling Julie how much he’d changed. Well, fuck you, you asshole.) Julie definitely softballed him. Although I did notice they didn’t let him get anywhere near the audience, didn’t let them cheer (or boo).
I’d love to see what Amanda’s goodbye message was! They’re starting to pump her up now on the show. She’s about the only funny one left.
Aryan Aaryn is definitely a twit. It looks like the others have made peace with her being there though — maybe because they figured out she’s just a bitter old bitch?
Judd clearly did NOT want to win that. I’m glad Kaitlin didn’t though! She needs another week or two to be de-brainwashed. Maybe she’ll turn into a decent person?
July 19, 2013 at 2:26 am #270868
Hmmm….another thing that is going to make this MVP thing a bit tricky is when the voting is going to open and close. Does anyone know?
If the voting doesn’t open until after the noms are announced on Sunday, then there won’t be problem with the HOH nominating the same person as the MVP. If that’s the case, then Aryan will be the obvious choice. If, on the other hand, the votes get tallied before the viewing audience knows who are the HOH picks, then it gets less predictable. If the audience’s top first and second choices (Aryan and probably GM) are already picked, they would have to go with the third choice? Elissa maybe?…I’ not sure. The timing of when BB/CBS reveals the twist to the HG (before or after HOH noms) is also going to affect strategy.
I think that the producers are going to want to maintain as much control of the situation as they can. They are going to reveal the twist to the HGs after after Judd’s noms and then open voting after Sunday’s show. Elissa is going to have a freak out when she realizes that there is no need for the others to consult with her any more.
July 19, 2013 at 2:28 am #270869
Also, is there some kind of symbolism to Elissa’s sideways cross thing? Is that like a wink, along the lines of “look, I know religion is just silly, but if it’ll help me get MVP votes…”? Or does it have some kind of deeper meaning.
I’m enjoying how they’re playing up Howard as the bible dude. He’s already admitted that he originally wanted to play the Jeremy part but that production told him to be Bible guy. And now we also know he’s just another reality famewhore.
July 19, 2013 at 3:08 am #270880
Well, shit. That’s what I get for stepping out of the room during the show. I didn’t realize until now that they had explained how the voting was going to work…
July 19, 2013 at 4:06 am #270884
-the sideways cross thing is just a trend. I work in fashion and crosses were on everything last year. I actually have a similar necklace as Elissa and I’m athiest.
-I think America choosing the MVP is not only a ploy to get Aaryn out but to keep Howard in. I think he and Candace have become the underdogs in American’s eyes after Bed-Gate and I dont think America will vote for Howard. It will either be Aaryn or GM. (Personally I used all 10 of my votes on GM. I HATE Aaryn but I’d like to keep seeing her embarass heself and her family. GM has to be the most annoying person on TV i have ever seen. That title used to belong to Enzo and those “meow meow” noises.)
-im loving that Aaryn’s only “friends” in the house dont trust or even seem to really like her much anymore. (BTW, Aaryn’s mom has hired a publicist to try and salvage her reputation.)
-WE BETTER start seeing interviews with Jeremy soon because im starting to worry that they are planning on putting him back in the house.
-i cant wait til GM leaves and finds out that Nick couldnt give two shits about her. theres no way in hell Nick would date Staten Island trash like her. Not that I think Nick is some kind of catch.
July 19, 2013 at 5:27 am #270885
I don’t understand Amanda’s logic. Doesn’t Aaryn have GM and Kaitlyn? So Aaryn and Howard both have two allies in the house.
July 19, 2013 at 5:55 am #270887
All my votes are going with putting Elissa up..Ive said from Day 1..she is no Rachel..Why does she talk like that??? She reminds me of a stoned Barbie! Oh wait! Was that a racist thing???
July 19, 2013 at 5:58 am #270888
Aaryn and Kaitlin can barely stand each other, and everyone is sick of GM. Now that Kaitlin will no longer be intoxicated by Chief Asshat Jeremy’s Axe body spray, she’ll no doubt turn on Aaryn as soon as she needs to.
July 19, 2013 at 6:06 am #270889
I guess Jeremy’s already home?
July 19, 2013 at 6:27 am #270890
But seriously as soon as David and Nick were out they were making their interview rounds. We better start seeing some from Jeremy soon or we can be sure that he’s going back in. Keep your eyes peeled please!
July 19, 2013 at 6:30 am #270891
Big Jeff has his interview with Jeremy today at 3:00 EST CBS/connect
July 19, 2013 at 7:22 am #270893
July 19, 2013 at 7:34 am #270894
Get your votes in! The voting for the third nominee ends today (Friday) at 6PM (Pacific). I gave 5 to Aaryn and 5 to GM. As someone said, it would be awesome for Aaryn to find out that America put her up! And I am soooo sick of GM crying! At least Elissa is nominating people and it hasn’t been in secret.
Big contrast between GM’s (still continuing) post Nick demeanor and Kaitlin’s post Jeremy demeanor. And there was probably some REAL emotion with the latter pair.
Judd shouldn’t nominate Kaitlin, seems like she can do well in competitions. Do let Howard get nominated! We still need beefcake in the house! Plus I like the Howard/Candice pairing.
July 19, 2013 at 8:01 am #270895
Agreed Tax girl. Jeremy seemed to really like Kaitlin. When he was leaving he said something along the lines of “where’s my princess”. I am not sure Nick gave GM two thoughts after hearing he was evicted.
July 19, 2013 at 9:02 am #270900
July 19, 2013 at 9:08 am #270901
Well, I went to bed early last night so I’ve just check out what everyone has had to say about last night and then I went to the feeds to see what Judd had to say.
He really didn’t want this HOH like Dashley said and when I flash-backed to when it was just him and Jessie alone in the HOH bed together, I got filled in on their conversation. she is very grateful he is letting her stay upstairs with him and he’s just happy to have her sharing the room with him. You knows she’s afraid of those mean girls. They were busy bashing her right after the show last night, saying she was going to be right up Judd’s ass now that he’s HOH.
Anyhow…. Judd wants to wait and see what the MVP nom is before he worries about the VETO and whether or not to throw it. Jessie thinks that he’s being used to get rid of Howard, but he tells Jessie that his target is Gina Marie. He wanted her out of the house this week. He’s going to put up her & Kaitlin with Kaitlin as the pawn. Jessie can’t understand why he’d keep Kaitlin & AARYN over Gina Marie! Judd tells her that he’s already made a deal with Howard, AND Gina Marie doesn’t deserve to make it to the jury. Jessie just doesn’t see the house voting GM out, that they will vote out one of the other girls and then the others will come after her. Judd tells her that he’s already told Aaryn that he would not put her up, no matter what. (Well, now America can put her up then) Jessie tells him that she just feels that Andy and Amanda like Kaitlin better than they do her and when the time comes, will choose Kaitlin over Jessie. Judd tells her not to worry, Kaitlin doesn’t know anything about BB and that’s what matters.
July 19, 2013 at 9:09 am #270902
July 19, 2013 at 9:10 am #270903
July 19, 2013 at 9:33 am #270910
Just a little while later Judd meets up with his homies in the bathroom to discuss his next move. He tells Spencer about his plan to get rid of Gina Marie. Spencer says he’ll vote for whoever Judd wants him too BUT he tries to tell him that GM’s easy pickins, like low-hanging fruit, that she can’t win shit and they can get her anytime they want. Judd tells him how much he hates the whole MVP thing and wishes it was over. He thinks it makes MORE floaters, not less. They both don’t like dealing with Elissa. Spencer says “She hates me and I voted for her!” When Howard joins them they fill him in on Judd’s plans and Judd decides to keep his noms with GM and Kaitlin, but they talk about the possibility of back-dooring Elissa, especially if she doesn’t do what they want her to.
July 19, 2013 at 9:35 am #270913
He obviously doesn’t know anything yet. Or he really is THAT DUMB.
July 19, 2013 at 10:43 am #271074
Already four pages . . . wow!
I’m happy it’s Judd too!
@JimmyT: I changed my avatar to reflect my inner hooker for you. Picture her with a bit of Harvey and as much class as GM has!
Good one on the link, Itchy!
Thanks everyone for your help. Does it cost a buck to vote? I think I’d be apt to vote out Elissa too, just for being so useless.
The talk show they did was pretty fun, Aaryn genuinely smiled during parts.
Did anyone mention that Amanda is going to be Mc’s sugar momma . . . hmmm, I picture him in a suit with a haircut in 10, 9, 8 . . .
July 19, 2013 at 10:56 am #271076
Judd made one final stop last night, checking back in with Amanda & Pizza Boy. Of course, Amanda hadn’t veered off her course. She was still harping on about back-dooring Howard. Judd told her he was putting up Kaitlin & GM. Amanda said she was told that he was going around saying there was an all-girl alliance he wanted to break up. He said that’s what he told Kaitlin. Amanda wanted to know who Elissa was going to put up and Judd said Aaryn , but he doesn’t want her to. He says he wants her to put up Candice, but if he doesn’t do what he wants then what good is she. He should back-door HER! Amanda says that Elissa is never gonna put up Candice, she’s gonna put up Aaryn, cuz that’s who she wants gone. Judd thinks he’s pretty sure that Aaryn will stay and Amanda says she doesn’t give a shit who he puts up as long as Howard is the one who ends up going home. Then they start thinking about how Judd’s going to explain to Gina Marie why she’s going on the block. Judd says he’ll tell her, ” I had a vision from Nick last night and he needs you back in Staten Island. I’m sorry you have to go up.” He swears that’s what he’ll say, laughing like crazy “I’ll do it, I’ll do it!”
July 19, 2013 at 10:57 am #271077
JuddFan?? Is that a Barbie??? Didnt you know being a Barbie is being a racist??? sheesh!
July 19, 2013 at 11:00 am #271078
I cant wait for them to all find out that Elissa is having no say on that 3rd nominee!! Especially, when Elissa finds out! Nothing like ASS_U_ming you are entitled to that honor every week!!!!
July 19, 2013 at 11:25 am #271080
@Noody: I assure you my inner hooker is an equal opportunity ho! And it’s not Barbie, it’s actually a Farrah doll from the 70’s (just don’t tell anyone)
Forgot to add, seriously, GM worked in beauty pageants? How is that possible in this universe . . . She can hardly speak. Did anyone catch her falling into jibberish on the talk show they did . . . just bizarre! I do wish she hadn’t lost me with her insurance comment etc, coz otherwise, she’d fit right in with the grrrls on the stroll-I’m just sayin’
July 19, 2013 at 11:34 am #271083
Howard….. cooking breakfast.
Up in the HOH room, Judd had a long conference with Elissa with Jessie chirping in now and then. Elissa would like to target Spencer or Howard with her vote. It amazes me how sure everyone is that Elissa will be the MVP again. Judd asks about her and Helen’s deal with Kaitlin to keep her safe this week. Elissa tells him that the deal is with Helen, not her. Judd says she can’t be making deals. “…. you can’t promise what I’ll do when I’m HOH. That’s your deal.” Judd is frustrated that there are so many side deals, like 90 of them! You got to pick the right one so everybody’s happy. Everyone is so focused on getting rid of Spencer and Howard and one of these girls has got to go. He thinks all three of them should go up. Elissa wants Aaryn gone, but Judd thinks it should be Kaitlin. Elissa wants to know why NOT Aaryn. Judd says it’s because she’s a loner like you were and I stuck up for you, now I’m doing it for her.
Whem Helen joins the crew and finds out Kaitlin and Gina Marie are the targets, she starts the fake crying act, telling Elissa that she promised Kaitlin she would be safe this week. Now Kaitlin KNOWS she’s the target and Helen swears she didn’t tell her. Aaryn must have and is setting Helen up! When Judd come into the room she calls Aaryn a ‘fucking bitch”, saying she was set up by Aaryn, that whatever she says , she’s a liar! They all agree that Aaryn is just a shit-stirrer and not to believe anything her or Kaitlin say. They can all three go up on the block.
July 19, 2013 at 12:04 pm #271084
Howard can come to my house and cook breakfast anytime. I’m drooling over here, for more than one reason.
I don’t think Judd is being stupid for wanting GM out. She’s an emotional vote, and he wants to make sure that she doesn’t get to jury. You can’t reason with her or change her game based on a deal, because she doesn’t know how to negotiate that way.
He didn’t want HoH this early, he doesn’t want to become a target by attempting to get a strong player out. Getting out GM is the least bloodstained his hands can be.
Plus, he’s hella irritated with her. She STILL hasn’t gotten over Nick, and he’s sick of hearing about it.
July 19, 2013 at 12:20 pm #271085
Sent 8 questions to the live chat, Jeff is only picking “safe” ones.
July 19, 2013 at 12:26 pm #271087
anyone wondering about the music video Kaitlin was in. YOU’RE WELCOME:
July 19, 2013 at 12:29 pm #271088
Thank you Chooch!!! Howard is Yummy!!!!
Dashley would you like to do a four on three off type of schedule for his breakfast duties?
July 19, 2013 at 12:44 pm #271091
I read on reddit that this happened:
“Amanda getting off; Cam 1 and 2, 3 am on the 18th.
heavy making out, maybe more, haven’t watched it all. cam 1 and 2 the 19th at 5 am”
Any chance of getting a rewind screencap or two?
July 19, 2013 at 12:51 pm #271093
Oh yeah, Amanda and McCrae have been either having sex or dry humping in the lounge late at night/early in the morning (around 4 AM usually) every day now for 3 or 4 days. If you look at last week’s forums, I put a picture in there. But you can’t see much – they always make sure there’s a comforter covering them.
And Amanda is ALWAYS on top.
July 19, 2013 at 12:52 pm #271095
Listen Classy, I like you, but what makes you think I want to share?
You can have him for lunch. I don’t care about lunch.

Btw, if you guys are wondering why there haven’t been any updates in a while, it’s because we’re on trivia while they do the have/have-not comp. There were bandanas to choose, and the people who haven’t been have-nots yet were strategizing last night how to choose bandanas to somehow increase their chances of winning, so fingers crossed they’re just blowing smoke up each other’s asses.
Have-not wish list: Aryan, GM, Kaitlin at LEAST. And I hope the food America chose was Sauerkraut and Seaweed, though artichokes and anchovies would also be a little evil. Macaroni and mangoes is going WAY too easy on them.
July 19, 2013 at 1:37 pm #271121
Umm, I don’t think that Aryan’s mom had the same thing in mind when she hired a publicist than most other people would.
July 19, 2013 at 1:54 pm #271126
A little more Jessie/Judd cuteness! (Am I the only one excited that these two are totally in love with each other?)
While they were sleeping last night (well, this morning at about 7 AM) they were THISCLOSE all night to spooning. And Judd (unconsciously) had his hand down his pants.
Big Brother woke them up at 9:30 and said “Jessie, please go to the Diary Room.) She suddenly wakes up and whines, “Meeee? Why meee?” And Judd, who was already up and getting ready for the day, answered her “it’s because you are the only one who looks good without makeup and shit, not like the rest of em.”
July 19, 2013 at 1:58 pm #271130
This is turning into the lovingest season of BB ever. Ironic, considering it’s also the most hate-filled season ever (impressive, considering we’re only starting week 4).
July 19, 2013 at 2:00 pm #271131
Awwwwww, that J_U_Double D Pardy Dardy is such a cutie patootie!
July 19, 2013 at 2:17 pm #271134
I’ll have some of what you’re drinking!
July 19, 2013 at 2:18 pm #271135
Helen, Elissa, Candice and Jessie are Have nots..They got macaroni and mangos..Not too bad for them
July 19, 2013 at 2:51 pm #271137
Aw man! If Jessie is a have-not this week, Judd’s going to be sleeping all by himself in the HoH, and he’s not going to get any even with all that privacy! Poor thing. Plus, Jessie was a HN last week, and she had a freakout about it last night a couple of hours before she was able to eat again, and this week might just break her.
July 19, 2013 at 2:53 pm #271150
Correction..Have nots..Spencer, Andy, Jessie , Candice…I think! lol
July 19, 2013 at 3:04 pm #271152
Correction: Andy, Candice, Jessie, and Spencer are have-nots this week.
It was just confirmed that the nomination ceremony is today, and Judd is scrambling to talk to people to figure out what to do. Right now it looks like he’s going to nominate Kaitlin and GM, both as pawns that he won’t miss if they go home for some reason, with the intention of backdooring whomever his alliance decides to after POV.
July 19, 2013 at 3:12 pm #271154
Awwww yisss don’t nominate Aaryn, let America do that for you and watch her face crumple when she realizes America wants her out of there! This ought to be entertaining, and I’m pretty sure the week will be filled with petulant bitchfits as a result. If Kaitlin wins PoV (and she’s honestly the only one out of the three that is likely to do so on a physical challenge) and takes herself off the block, I don’t know if that’ll really change anything at all. I suspect Aaryn will be going home this week whether she likes it or not.
July 19, 2013 at 3:14 pm #271155
Really, my only regret if Aaryn goes home this week is that the little shit didn’t get stuck as a have-not while she was there. And the only reason I’d want her to stay is to see that happen.
July 19, 2013 at 3:14 pm #271156
Aaryn has been spreading a rumor around the house that Helen and Kaitlin have a deal, and it’s making Judd very paranoid.
Judd spoke with Elissa about it, and she advises him that he needs to be “smarter than that” because everything they’ve done as a team to this point has been solid, and it is in the other side’s best interest to cause contention.
Aryan also asked Judd “who do I need to be nice to” to avoid being put on the block? Uh… how about everyone, dumbass? Anyway, Judd advises her to suck up to Elissa and Helen and be generally nice, “Even though I know that’s hard for you.”
July 19, 2013 at 3:19 pm #271158
MY dream scenario is that it is announced BEFORE the veto comp that this week’s MVP is America, and Aryan is so caught up in how she has been portrayed as a racist (because she’s so discriminated against being pretty and from Texas) that she totally BLOWS the POV. That would be beautiful.
July 19, 2013 at 3:20 pm #271159
Aw, crap. Except Judd is working on the assumption that “Elissa is going to put up Aaryn anyway” so he’s going to put her and Kaitlin up with GM as his potential replacement nominee if he needs one.
July 19, 2013 at 3:27 pm #271160
Aryan also asked Judd “who do I need to be nice to” to avoid being put on the block? Uh… how about everyone, dumbass? Anyway, Judd advises her to suck up to Elissa and Helen and be generally nice, “Even though I know that’s hard for you.”
And that, right there, is why I hate Aaryn. She may be racist, she may not be racist. It doesn’t matter. That little piece of gold-covered-shit is the ugliest person I have ever seen on this show because she has absolutely no shred of common human decency toward anyone but HERSELF. She will sit there and pretend to be close friends with anyone and everyone, but it doesn’t matter in the long run because you can bet your ass 10 minutes after your perfectly nice conversation with her she will be talking to someone else about how horrible it was to talk to you and have to pretend to get along. That goes for Kaitlin, it goes for Jeremy, it goes for GM, it goes for David, it goes for every single last person in that house. I don’t even think she has friends out here in the real world, she just has people she talks to and uses to further whatever selfish, petty goals she has set for herself.
And she has the BALLS to say she has excellent gameplay when her strategy consisted of spreading her legs and slapping her vagina to some dude’s leg like a lamprey and riding them to the end of the game – she complains about floaters, yet her “strategy” was one of the BIGGEST FLOATER STRATEGIES OUT THERE. The ONLY thing that little shit has going for her is the fact that she’s pretty (which is arguable because her nose gives her a perpetual expression of constantly smelling something unpleasant), and she not only thinks that’s going to get her far in the game, she EXPECTS to get farther in the game because of it.
She is one of the most rancid, disgusting, entitled assholes I have ever seen on this show and you know what, last week I said I felt some small margin of dread for what was going to happen to her – I take that back. I seriously take it all back because every conversation she’s had after that just illustrates that that tsunami of horrible shit that is just waiting for her on the other side of that door is exactly what she deserves.
July 19, 2013 at 3:30 pm #271161
LOL GM is sooo bad at this game. She takes her turn to make her case to Judd, and she tells him that the fact she isn’t a have-not this week proves that she is feeling better, and is in this game now, and can win competitions. And then she offers to Judd to work with him, but leaves it there, nothing specific is discussed. He thanks her, and that’s the end of that. The whole conversation lasted about 60 seconds – even though she knows there’s a good chance she’s going on the block.
July 19, 2013 at 3:34 pm #271162
WW, I agree with you 100%.
And I would add that this season is a great example to point to about how someone’s personality changes the perception of their attractiveness. If you rewind to the first week, I thought Aryan was one of the most beautiful girls I had ever seen, and now every time I see her, I feel a little sick. To me, she’s incredibly unattractive. Contrast that with Judd and McCrae, who I didn’t think were particularly hot at all, and I now have a crush on both of them and think both of them are hot, because they are good people.
July 19, 2013 at 3:40 pm #271163
Helen, Candice, and Jessie are having a little anti-Amanda meeting right now. They think she has deals with too many people and she has too much influence in the house. They also think she might be responsible for the rumor that Kaitlin and Helen have a deal (they may not be wrong, I’m not entirely sure on that one.)
Also, I missed this originally in the VERY short Judd & GM conversation, but she apparently offered to keep him company in the HoH bed this week (GAG).
July 19, 2013 at 3:44 pm #271165
My wish is that Aryan will get the MVP nomination, but then not get voted out. Then next week she will become a have-not, the producers will keep America as the MVP and she will get voted again, and then voted out. Otherwise, she is not going to take the hint.
July 19, 2013 at 3:48 pm #271166
CBS.com has a couple of pictures from the HN comp- it was BB froyo, with nasty combinations like anchovy-habanero twist.
I love me some Amanda (especially because she has come the closest to figuring out the twist – a little bit ago she suggested that something was going to happen with MVP this week) but she needs to pull back a little. Judd isn’t anywhere CLOSE to nominating Howard right now, and Amanda’s like, “But you HAVE to! Not nominating him makes no sense!”
July 19, 2013 at 4:00 pm #271167
Judd keeps joking to Jessie and Elissa that he’s going to nominate them. “Jessie, because you’re the biggest floater that has ever been in the BB house, and Elissa, because you’re the second-biggest floater. Good luck.”
July 19, 2013 at 4:01 pm #271168
Eep! Judd JUST said “I hope that the twist isn’t that America votes on the nominee and screws me or something.”
He said if it’s Pandora’s box he’s going to open it.
July 19, 2013 at 4:04 pm #271169
Oh Judd. Poor, dear Judd you are right on the money and you don’t even know it
July 19, 2013 at 4:15 pm #271173
McCrae’s birthday is Sunday and hes gonna go to the DR and see if the have-nots can eat on his birthday..I really doubt that but good luck McCrae…We share the same birthday as mine is Sunday too! I will eat for the have-nots (doing my BB duty)
July 19, 2013 at 4:16 pm #271174
While Spencer is in HoH telling Jessie, Elissa, and Andy about GM’s pathetic attempt at a negotiation and they all laugh about it, let’s switch cameras, where Howard is giving Candice a REALLY thorough massage.
Unnnf. I’m starting to hate Candice myself, not because she’s black (like SOME people in the BB house do), but because I’m really, really jealous.
July 19, 2013 at 4:17 pm #271175
Okay guys, I’m signing off for now! Happy Friday!
July 19, 2013 at 4:28 pm #271176
I’m starting to think that we are beginning to see the beginning of a wedge between Judd and Amanda. If he doesn’t cave on the Howard thing, I’m pretty sure that Amanda is going to be as obsessed with getting Judd out next week as she is with Howard this week.
July 19, 2013 at 5:21 pm #271178
July 19, 2013 at 5:32 pm #271180
Another Jeremy interview to read while we wait for nominations….
July 19, 2013 at 7:16 pm #271190
Judd put Aaryn and Kaitlin on the block
July 19, 2013 at 7:17 pm #271191
I guess Judd didn’t keep his promise to Aaryn…. and America can choose another MVP vote.
It’s Aaryn & Kaitlin on the block!
July 19, 2013 at 7:19 pm #271192
Oh Noody…. you posted it quicker because I got Aaryn’s pouty face!
July 19, 2013 at 7:41 pm #271194
Since Judd nominated Aaryn and Kaitlin, America’s vote might actually be Amanda. If so, if any of those three came off the block using Veto, then Judd could put up GinaMarie. Although, I suppose GM might end up being America’s vote. It doesn’t matter. Seeing either GM’s or Amanda’s face if they got put up would be so entertaining.
July 19, 2013 at 8:04 pm #271195
I know I am in the minority here..but I do not care much for Amanda. She isn’t as funny as she thinks she is, and it is a good thing (for her) that Aryan, Hatelyn and Germy were in the house; otherwise the hateful things that SHE said in the first week might not have been so easily forgotten.
I also think that her plan all along was to get with the guy who would be “grateful” to be with a fairly attractive chick so that she could turn him into her titty baby.
July 19, 2013 at 8:21 pm #271196
Spencer and Judd watch SpyTV while they talk about the nomination ceremony. spencer wants to klnow what brought on Judd’s change of mind about putting up Aaryn instead of GM. he heard there was a blow up “up here” this morning. Judd said it wasn’t really nuthin’. It was Helen sayin’ that Kaitlin was told she was going on the block. Helen was blamed for telling her. Helen said that Aaryn was behind this lie and was stirrin’ up shit. Helen and the others want Kaitlin to stick around awhile longer. (Actually Helen promised her safety and Judd caved!)
I guess during the nom ceremony Judd told Aaryn that she twists what people say and it causes a lot of trouble. That was his reason for put her up.
Aaryn interrupted the boys TV time to talk to Judd so Spencer excused himself. She was all teary-eyed and confused. He tells her that if there’s a power, that maybe she will get it. She is afraid she is going home and everyone is after her. He tries to tell her that they’re not. She asks him to promise that she’s not going home, but he doesn’t answer her, but offers her Skittles instead.
She just doesn’t think she twists things, that she says anything wrong. She really wants to know if she does twist some things, what are they?
Judd gives her a quick hug and offers up those Skittles, not committing to a thing but telling her that there is something coming that could change things.
When she goes down to the bathroom, Aaryn tells Amanda & Kaitlin that earlier Judd told her the MVP would probably put her up, not him and Kaitlin says “What if the twist is America nominates one of us?”
July 19, 2013 at 8:46 pm #271197
I’m so disappointed that Judd put up Aryan Aaryn. I was so looking forward to her hearing the fact that she’s America’s Festering Asshole and not (as I’m sure she thinks) America’s Sweetheart. That was the whole reason I used my 10 votes on her.
Oh well. What can ya do?
July 19, 2013 at 8:50 pm #271198
I’ve been checking out other sites that have been conducting polls on who they want for the MVP vote and, of course, over 50% of the votes go to Aaryn, but the next in line in all of these polls is Amanda…. some by as much as 20%.
July 20, 2013 at 12:28 am #271207
Just checking in to let you guys know that Judd & Elissa are freaking out because Elissa hasn’t been called to the DR tonight to get her notice that she’s the MVP and she usually knows by now, like a long time ago…..
July 20, 2013 at 1:08 am #271208
I’m still on the fence about Amanda. She’s clearly (along with Helen) the smartest person in the house, but she doesn’t have Helen’s smarminess to even her out. She’s definitely an East Coast personality, which doesn’t always go over well with midwesterners (Slow) and southerners (slower).
I think what happened between her and McCrae was it started out being a joke for her, but then she actually really started to like him (and his dick, apparently).
And so far there’s been no indication at all that this guy is anything other than a pizza delivery boy, right? You’d think by now, if he was hiding something, people would have found that out.
I find it hard to believe that the producers didn’t “guide” Judd’s nominations — it’s true, it would have been a great slap in the face to Aaryn. But maybe they’ll reveal the ACTUAL vote to the houseguests, then say, since Aayrn has already been nominated, the MVP vote goes to the second in line.
July 20, 2013 at 1:52 am #271209
I tried to watch the feeds tonight, but the showmnances split off to themselves… Candice & Howard were with pizza Boy & Amanda for awhile and then they split off. Amanda & PB have taken over the lounge/cockpit for their own little love-nest. This is where she gives him his nightly hand job and then he returns the favor by letting her hump the shit out of him from on top. Candice has made it clear to Howard that she’d like to see Amanda as the MVP nomination. He see no use for Elissa if she has no MVP powers anymore. Elissa, of course, can’t keep her mouth shut, and not let on that she hasn’t gotten the MVP notice. She running around like the sky is falling! She is worried that Judd got the MVP and is just not telling her. Kaitlin is sure that she’s the one going home and wants everyone to tell her it’s not true, that she’s safe. Her and Aaryn have been being a little snippy with each other…not the buddies they were yesterday. It’s a fact that Jessie wants her gone and she’s telling Aaryn that Kaitlin’s going to win that VETO and take herself off. Aaryn tells her she doesn’t talk game anymore. What’s the point!
Everyone is wondering who the fuck will be the replacement nominee tomorrow. No one has a clue?
July 20, 2013 at 2:29 am #271210
Elissa seems to have figured it out. Amanda went up to the HoH and announced that she had heard from somewhere that she was the target for the MVP. Everyone in the HoH – Andy, Judd and Kaitlin, went “WHAT?!” and seemed absolutely, genuinely shocked. Judd asked where she heard it from, she said it was just the “word on the streets.” Spencer came in, Amanda immediately got up and left, went downstairs, saw Elissa, gave her a look. Elissa followed her into the storage room and Amanda said “I heard I’m going to be the MVP target,” Elissa went “…why you?” Amanda asked her if she was MVP, Elissa said she wasn’t, and Amanda knows she wouldn’t lie to her. Amanda is trying to figure out why anyone would say she was a target. Elissa is trying to figure out who would nominate Amanda of all people – she suggests Aaryn or GinaMarie, Amanda says “Why?” Elissa says Kaitlin, Amanda says that still doesn’t make sense.
THEN, Elissa says “I bet they made America the MVP.” Amanda goes “…you think so?” Elissa says can you even imagine, they probably get to vote who the nominee is. Amanda says well then how would anyone know it’s me? Elissa says obviously someone was just being mouthy without any verification. They go to the kitchen, Kaitlin joins them. Incidentally, you can tell Jeremy is gone because Kaitlin has done nothing along the lines of basic grooming – her hair is messed up, she doesn’t look like she’s wearing makeup at all. Kaitlin talks with Elissa, asks if she’s MVP, Elissa says no – Amanda says she thinks it was just a rumor. Elissa tells Kaitlin she thinks America is going to be the MVP and they’re going to vote. Amanda asks Kaitlin and Elissa not to tell McCrae about what she heard, because he would seriously freak out.
Much, much later, Elissa and Helen are in the bedroom – they’re bunking together it looks like – and now they’re discussing who America might vote to evict. They’re also discussing how people are likely being portrayed on the broadcast and how that might affect America’s vote. They start pondering whether or not the comments by GinaMarie where she called them all cockroaches are going to be shown – and they’re laughing about it – then start talking about Howard and Candice, think they’re probably getting a sympathetic edit – fishes – Helen meekly says she didn’t know that was considered talking about production and apologies to BB.
July 20, 2013 at 2:37 am #271211
Also, so far – everyone thinks Elissa is acting weird. Kaitlin thinks Helen is acting weird. Elissa thinks Kaitlin is acting weird. Apparently everyone thinks that everyone else is acting “weird,” which is making for a pretty quiet night on the feeds. There’s a bunch of people in the HOH (Spencer/Kaitlin/GM/Howard/Andy – not sure where Judd is at, if he’s there he’s being quiet) talking about random shit – oh wait, they’re discussing Elissa. Kaitlin calls her fembot and says she’s scary because she’s had too much plastic surgery, Spencer says Elissa has two holes in her back and wonders if it’s from lipo, GinaMarie says no it’s not from lipo.
Amanda and McCrae go up to the HoH – ah, Judd is apparently in the DR. Jessie is, of course, already sleeping – she’s never, EVER up late. Horrible gameplay, everyone KNOWS you stay up late if you want to catch all the plotting!
July 20, 2013 at 2:42 am #271212
Kaitlin says don’t eat my Skittles (they are Judds), Andy gleefully tells them about a Skittles commercial that never aired with a woman having sex with a guy and when the guy reaches orgasm, Skittles come out. Kaitlin is disgusted. May swear off Skittles (NICE WORK ANDY WOO). Amanda goes back downstairs, McCrae stays upstairs, GM asks if they’re fighting, McCrae says uh, no – GM says she always gets worried that they’re fighting when they aren’t together. Kaitlin says the cameras are watching someone else because they haven’t moved in the HOH for 20 minutes. Spencer suggests maybe sleeping Jessie rolled over and “a tit popped out” – now they’re talking about Jessie’s clothing and how she’s always showing her nipples (uh…ooookay guys) – talking about Jessie freaking out week one, now we’re on fish. Probably Elissa/Helen said something they shouldn’t again, because the HOH sure isn’t saying anything interesting.
July 20, 2013 at 2:47 am #271213
Hahahaha – talking about being woken up in the morning, Kaitlin said she was so mad when they got woken up early. Andy says it was super funny that they actually had to re-shoot the “WHO’S READY FOR THE FUNKIEST HAVE NOT COMPETITION EVER” because everyone’s response was to shuffle to the door, half-awake. He says he totally started screaming and overdoing it the second time. Kaitlin says she reacted exactly the same as the first time. Judd is on his way back upstairs, GinaMarie screams “OH MY GOD THAT IS CRAZY” before Judd comes in the door just to fuck with him. Judd goes for the Captain Crunch, Andy says the “ooops, all berries” version is such bullshit, because it’s not an OOPS, they obviously manufactured it that way. Kaitlin starts dissecting the font on the box and how it’s messed up.
Kaitlin mentions that Elissa said America will vote the third nominee. Judd says that’s what Elissa told him too. Judd said he asked her if she was sure, said she was acting funny about it every time he asked her about it.
July 20, 2013 at 3:14 am #271214
Ahahahaha I found the commercial (NSFW OBVIOUSLY)
July 20, 2013 at 3:21 am #271215
The only people that seem to be up and awake are in the HOH room – Spencer, Howard, Kaitlin, GM, Judd, McCrae, Amanda and Andy. Everyone else is downstairs and asleep I think. Jessie is a have-not so she’s in the airplane room, I’m assuming Candace is sleeping in there too. Elissa and Helen are in bed. Howard is wearing the crown from the HoH comp, hahaha.
July 20, 2013 at 3:37 am #271216
McCrae and Amanda go outside. McCrae points out that Howard and Spencer are up in the HOH room still, and that Howard would usually be in bed by now – says that they are waiting Judd out, waiting for everyone else to leave. Amanda asks if he thinks Howard has MVP, McCrae says I don’t know. Amanda says she doesn’t think Kaitlin has it, just by Kaitlin’s reaction to the idea of Amanda going up on the block (which was one of sheer incredulous-ness, incidentally).
Ahhhh, apparently Aaryn told Amanda that Kaitlin said she was going up. Andy’s in the backyard now (surprise surprise). Andy says Elissa still says she doesn’t have MVP, but she’s been acting weird (seriously, everyone is saying everyone is acting weird) – they’re saying they’ll see tomorrow what happened.
Andy goes back upstairs to tell the HoH room goodnight, Judd goes down to talk to McCrae and Amanda – now it’s just Howard, Spencer and GM in the HOH room. Amanda and McCrae tell Judd that Aaryn told Amanda that Kaitlin said Amanda was going on the block – Judd asks if Aaryn’s MVP, Amanda says no way.
McCrae asks if Howard and Spencer are still in the HOH, Judd says yes, McCrae says they’re waiting you out to talk to you, tell them GM is going up if one of the girls comes off the block. Judd points out that he’s made a deal with GM, said that she keeps her mouth shut if she’s loyal to you. They are, I think, planning on putting up either Spencer or Howard if Aaryn or Kaitlin comes off the block.
Spencer is downstairs in the bathroom, followed Andy there – hahaha I think he’s trying to form a final three with him, Howard and Andy. Andy tells him he’s got his back and won’t vote him out if he’s on the block (I think Andy is just blowing smoke up Spencer’s ass really, he’s given this same line to just about anyone that’s come to him).
Spencer hangs in the kitchen, looks outside – I think he’s waiting for Judd to come back in. Judd says he thinks America’s voting, now they’re talking about who America would put up – GinaMarie, maybe Spencer (Judd says not Spencer, he’s a good guy and funny, little does he know).
Spencer’s back up in the HOH talking to GM with Howard. Talking about how McCrae is one of the safest guys in the house, even though he was in the MC. Saying that McCrae was the first to ditch them, and they are targets and he isn’t. GM says it sucks that they’re getting all the blame even though he was just as responsible. Ooo, now they’re talking about Amanda again, saying they don’t like her. Howard is still quietly saying she has to go. Judd comes back upstairs.
July 20, 2013 at 3:44 am #271217
GM is back to talking about Nick (are we surprised), only now she’s pointing out that Nick was the closest thing they had to a split vote because everyone liked him. Complaining that she’s alone in the house and doesn’t really have anyone to talk to because Aaryn and Kaitlin are cool with people now but she still feels like she’s on the outs.
July 20, 2013 at 3:51 am #271218
Amanda and McCrae were talking to Kaitlin in the bathroom – they told her Aaryn was the one that said that Kaitlin said Amanda was going up on the block. Kaitlin is -LIVID- about it. McCrae and Amanda go to bed, Kaitlin goes back upstairs and tells the HoH peeps (GM/Judd/Spencer/Howard) what happened. Says she can’t believe Aaryn would say that, especially when she’s up on the block. Doesn’t understand why Aaryn would try and throw her under the bus like that, to try and get on McCrae and Amanda’s good side? Judd says that Aaryn said something about how Judd was laughing at her – and FISHIES (dunno why!). Nobody really seems surprised that Aaryn was once again stirring up shit and just making up stuff.
I’m going to head to bed. But I think Aaryn just dug herself an incredibly deep hole and I don’t know if she’s going to be able to talk her way out of it. Everyone knows she was lying now, Amanda’s not happy about it, McCrae’s not happy about it, Kaitlin is PISSED about it and has said as much to Amanda and McCrae, GM doesn’t seem happy about it either. It might not matter WHO goes up as the MVP vote at this point.
July 20, 2013 at 6:52 am #271219
Ha, seems like Aaryn’s actually pretty good at something: she’s a born shit-stirrer. I’m kind of enjoying how she gets people to believe her, even though they all should have known she was full of shit from week 1.
Oh and– Whatwhat for Feeds MVP!
July 20, 2013 at 8:13 am #271221
I’m glad it is playing out this way. Now, hopefully the MVP nom will help set up next week’s power play. I hope it is Amanda since it may set up a rivalry between her and Helen which would make for an interesting few weeks.
Speaking of Helen, she’s been totally invisible. I’m not sure if it is by her design (making everyone get along and get Germy out) or because of all this stuff surrounding the MVP, but this seems to be one of the few times in this show when no one is thinking on targeting the HOH from the previous week.
July 20, 2013 at 9:12 am #271222
Thanks for the updates last night what what…I do wish that Aaryn was put up by America but hopefully CBS will do what Itchy said and reveal the votes.
Amanda going on the block would be good for entertainment also. I can’t wait to see what happens with that.
Dashley, I’ll take lunch then. Look as us…compromising like adults.
July 20, 2013 at 9:43 am #271223
From what we’ve seen of Amanda so far, her being on the block would be lots of fun: guaranteed she’d freak out and go into overdrive.
Well, we’ll see what “America” (i.e., the producers) decide.
July 20, 2013 at 9:45 am #271224
I really think Helen’s playing a great game so far — everyone loves her, no one’s targeting her, they let her manipulate them and happily so.
Plus, she does all these dorky cheerleading dances whenever she’s happy. What’s not to love?
July 20, 2013 at 10:58 am #271225
The MVP Nomination is ELISSA!
July 20, 2013 at 11:06 am #271226
I was just on Facebook and sister Rachel is FURIOUS!
#bb15 WTF who voted elissa the third nominee ????????????? Good job guys if elissa gets voted out over Aaryn I’m not watching –
She must have put it on Twitter.
Anyhow, in the house, everyone thinks NOW that America did NOT vote for the MVP and that someone in the house put her up. Pizza Boy thinks that Elissa voted for herself. Aaryn says that now she’s really fucked and HAS to win the VETO or she’s going home for sure. No one in the house will vote Elissa or Kaitlin out.
July 20, 2013 at 11:12 am #271227
HAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! so she’s the most loved and the most hated.
So basically what happened was Rachel fans were voting to make her MVP. Rachel haters were splitting their votes between the other house guest. Now Rachel haters all vote Elisa out and the Rachel fans split their votes among the house guest.
I wish it was Amanda but Elissa will work also.
July 20, 2013 at 11:17 am #271228
Amanda & Pizza Boy are the other two playing in the VETO competition today. They don’t want Elissa to win it and take herself off the block. They are of the mind that if she is the MVP and will replace herself with someone other than Howard. But they were saying earlier that they thought that Aaryn might be the MVP and was the one who put up Elissa. Either way, they want to be the ones who win the VETO today.
BB apparently didn’t tell them it was America who voted. Elissa even suggested that maybe Jeremy got to pick the MVP when he left.
July 20, 2013 at 11:53 am #271232
I have a question.
Let me just say a quick hello to everyone and say I’ve been a lurker for a few months, but this is my first post. =)
Ok, just wondering…since America voted for the 3rd nom (Elissa), if Elissa should happen to win the POV (highly doubtful, I’m sure) would America have to take another vote to replace her, or would Judd do it?
July 20, 2013 at 11:58 am #271233
Good Question Moony… and glad you came out of the fog! I didn’t really read on the CBS site just how that works, but I’m thinking the next in line, on the voting scale, will be the replacement. I will check in a bit to see if and what it says.
July 20, 2013 at 12:08 pm #271235
I was thinking it probably fell to America’s 2nd choice, too cuz there probably isn’t time for another vote.
July 20, 2013 at 12:22 pm #271236
Ah yes, “America.” I don’t believe it for a second. Elissa had a four-week contract to be on the show and the time is up. She probably misses driving around in her Lotus.
July 20, 2013 at 12:24 pm #271237
OMG! Helen is so awesome today. She has that knack. I wish she was my mom! Elissa was all upset that she is now no longer important in the house because she’s not the MVP. It was the only reason anyone kept her around and now she’s on the block and probably going home because no one needs her for anything anymore… wah wah wah… Well, leave it to Helen to turn that frown upside down! She just told Elissa that this is the best thing that could have happened to her. Now the pressure is off of her. She’s not going home. The house loves her. The target is off her back now and proves she’s NOT the MVP because you are on the block…. that’s good for her… and she has the votes to stay in the house. So why worry? She definitely has her & Candice. Candice agrees….and Pizza Boy and Judd, they love you too. Really this is the best thing to have happen to her right now. She doesn’t have to worry every week about being MVP and being a target. It’s open to everyone now. And if it Kaitlin or Aaryn goes off the block, she’s still not the one going home. She throws in that Rachel fought every single week she was in the BB house and she’s probably telling you right now to fight! She also tells her that if Kaitlin had anything to do with Elissa going on the block, she made a big mistake, because she had promised to do all she can to help keep Kaitlin in the house, but that’s all changed now. She’s going to make sure Elissa stays in this house NOW! She tells her she’s going to be just fine and to put on a poker face for now. She’s not going anywhere.
July 20, 2013 at 12:25 pm #271238
This is not what I was expecting, but it is shaping out to be a pretty entertaining situation. I think Classy nailed it into why is it that Elissa got nominated. I’m glad that it happened. I think that she was starting to act a little entitled about always being the MVP.
I’m also liking that they haven’t told anyone that America voted for the MVP. It is starting to create some fun paranoia. Since Aryan has been lying like crazy over the last day or so, I’m hoping that they all start pointing fingers at her and making her life miserable.
July 20, 2013 at 12:26 pm #271239
Now, who do you guys think will get backdoored (if someone comes off the block)? I thought that it is probably going to be Howard, but with this MVP paranoia I’m now thinking that it might be Spencer (since they also think he is a liar and super shady). Maybe Amanda?
July 20, 2013 at 12:34 pm #271240
As for the voting a replacement MVP, I wonder when would they let the viewers know about that. The results of the veto comp wouldn’t be known until Wednesday night and it seems that that would be too little a turn-around time. I don’t see them changing the format of the show for this (like Chooch says, they always stick to what they know). My guess is that if Elissa comes off the block that the replacement nom would be whomever got 4th place. Hard to tell who that would be (Amanda maybe based on some of polls Chooch saw last night?).
Then again, they might have another vote, if anything so that the can make more money off the viewers. What is it $1 per vote up to 10 votes?
July 20, 2013 at 12:37 pm #271241
I made a mistake… I know that’s hard to believe…. but I was wrong about who was playing in the VETO competition. Amanda isn’t playing, Helen is! so it’s…
McCrae, Elissa, Aaryn, Kaitlin, Helen & Judd
Sorry… I blame Amanda!
July 20, 2013 at 12:51 pm #271244
JimmyT, Judd was just talking about the replacement nomination with Helen and Elissa. He said if either one of them won the VETO, they should use it to take Elissa off the block, let everyone know they are going to use it, to possibly flush out the MVP. The VETO ceremony is always on Monday, so we live feed people will know then who the replacement nominee will be then, if the VETO is used.
Aaryn was walking thru the kitchen earlier and Elissa was standing there with some of the others and she said to her as she passed by: “I’m not stupid enough to put you up even if I got it.” Then she keeps on walking to the bathroom. Aaryn knows that no one is going to vote Elissa out of the house and the chances of them voting Kaitlin out are looking slim too. Her only hope is to win the VETO or have an even better target as a replacement nom, like Howard.
July 20, 2013 at 12:54 pm #271245
I wish they’d realize they could use the 3-way split vote to their advantage, but like you said JimmyT, they just can’t seem to grasp the concept!
July 20, 2013 at 1:13 pm #271249
“WEIRD” continues….. Aaryn tells Judd that Elissa is just weird. She swears to Judd that she’s not the MVP and Judd says this whole MVP thing can just go to hell. He hates it and just wants it to end. Aaryn just wants him to know that everyone thinks that Elissa is acting weird, “sketchy” is the word for it according to Amanda, who thinks she’s acting.
July 20, 2013 at 1:30 pm #271251
This is why I love Big Brother SO much. This is fucking beautiful.
Judd was doing his damndest to protect Aryan, because he felt like she would have his back in the future. He wasn’t happy about it though, because he just doesn’t like her. And then she spent the whole night stirring shit she didn’t have to, so now she’s everyone’s target again, and if Judd won the POV, I would be SHOCKED if he used it on her like he was originally planning to.
Meanwhile, now that Elissa is on the block, she’s going to have to earn her spot in the house without a MVP nomination to help her out. She’s going to have to win POV or scheme well enough that she finally has the respect of the others.
July 20, 2013 at 1:35 pm #271252
As I was putting my votes toward Aryan Aaryn, I was thinking that for some reason TPTB wanted Elissa nominated and they were tricking all of us by making “us” the MVP nom this week. I wasn’t tricked, because I can read, but I’m not sure if that’s true of the majority of America sometimes, especially Brenchel fans. There’s probably a good deal of non-Brenchel fans out there that don’t like Elissa so their votes plus idiot Brenchel fans would get the Elissa nom in the bag.
And then I thought – nah, TPTB wouldn’t have dreamed that up. They used this to get Aryan Aaryn out of there without making it look like they were expelling her themselves. Whatever was I thinking?
July 20, 2013 at 1:36 pm #271253
Elissa is having a nervous breakdown wondering who put her up. She watched all last night who went in and out of that DR seeing who might have gotten that MVP because it certainly wasn’t her this time. She narrowed it down to Howard because he was in there the longest. the only other one in there for any length of time last night was Aaryn and she was called in at a moments notice. If it had been important, like getting the MVP, she wouldn’t have gone in there all grungy, she would have put on some make-up and looked presentable. So she jumps up Howard’s ass, telling him she knows he nominated her and how could he do that after she saved him last week! Everyone wanted him on the block, but NO, she wouldn’t do it, she put up Spencer instead and now he turns around and stabs her in the back and puts her up! He thinks she’s bat-shit crazy and tells her he was in the DR so long because they wanted to know why he sucked so bad at the last competition. Candice tries to intervene, saying that Aaryn doesn’t necessarily wear make-up all the time to do the DR sessions because she really doesn’t need it.. Wow! Burn! LOL! Howard thinks Elissa just needs to have fun during the competition and not worry. No one is voting her out. Just relax and don’t let them see you sweat… that’s what they want.
July 20, 2013 at 1:47 pm #271255
The Feeds have gone to TRIVIA so it’s VETO time!
July 20, 2013 at 1:55 pm #271256
Before it went to trivia I was listening to the feeds while I did my dishes and I heard Pizza Boy tell Kaitlin that if he won the VETO he wasn’t going to use it. He wanted the nominations to stay the same so he didn’t have to worry about Amanda going on the block. He needed to protect her and himself. Kaitlin had told Judd earlier that she really wasn’t going to try and win the VETO, that she wasn’t actually going to throw the game, but she wasn’t worried about winning either. She didn’t want to come off the block and have to be one of the people to vote Aaryn out of the house. That’s just fucked up! These people need their pills taken away.
Amanda and Pizza Boy still think there’s some sort of power going to be sprung on them or that Elissa already has it. That’s why she’s on the block. Makes sense to me!
July 20, 2013 at 2:11 pm #271257
People constantly amaze me! I am shocked at how many of the hamsters think that Elissa nominated herself to be the third nominee! Why would someone nominate themselves for voting out of the house? I guess there is stupid, more stupid and most stupid…
July 20, 2013 at 2:11 pm #271258
Okay, could you give me an example of how they can use the three-way nominations to their advantage? I don’t really see it. For me, it just seemed like a way to keep Elissa in the game for a few weeks.
July 20, 2013 at 2:28 pm #271259
Okay, let’s look at this week… assuming nominations stay the same, Aryan is the target, Kaitlin is a pawn, and Elissa is MVP nom. Kaitlin will probably have zero votes, because the HGs only ever consider two nominees at a time. There will be nine votes total. If the vote split was 6-3, the person with six votes would be going home. But if a three-person alliance (say, Candice, Howard, Spencer) wanted to make waves in the house, they could secretly all cast their votes for Kaitlin. Aryan would most likely still go home, because Judd would cast a tiebreaking vote. But it would throw the house upside down, allowing them to control the chaos, and therefore, the house.
July 20, 2013 at 3:03 pm #271261
Ah, okay, I see. I just couldn’t wrap my head around this one. I’d suck at this game. But I’m not stupid enough to ever sign up for it. So there’s that, right?
At this point, I hope Elissa goes home. Bet the MVP mysteriously ends when that happens too.
July 20, 2013 at 3:28 pm #271263
Oh my god I am laughing my ass off at all of this I AM SO GLAD THEY DIDN’T TELL THE HOUSEGUESTS AMERICA WAS THE MVP SO MUCH DELICIOUS CHAOS
So here’s my going theory about the twists this season. America was tired of floaters. Production decided to throw in the MVP twist. But this WASN’T TO GET RID OF THE FLOATERS. Because there was a part two to that twist, and it’s Elissa. Production knew, they HAD TO KNOW that Elissa, being the relative of a really well-known BB contestant, would auto-win MVP. There’s just no way around it. If they had really wanted MVP anonymous, they wouldn’t have put someone so completely obvious in there. Elissa was put there on purpose. So why would they do that?
Because the MVP twist wasn’t about getting RID of the floaters – it was about putting a very blatant advantage in the house of hamsters, and seeing who would recognize that advantage for what it was, and USE IT. It was another tool for players to use to try and get ahead in the game. Essentially, production threw the floaters a life-vest and cleverly used Rachel’s sister as that life-vest. If floaters were smart, they’d ally with Elissa and use that third nomination as a weapon.
Strong players, in the meantime, would likely get incredibly annoyed that someone came into the game and auto-won an advantage, and would attempt to take her out – leaving her and the floaters on a much more even playing field. They now have something to offer to players that want to flip – they have a guaranteed third nomination.
BUT – and here’s the fun part – the floaters had grown all-too complacent. They did what was expected and used Elissa’s nomination, successfully enough that they got three strong players – David, Nick, and Jeremy – booted out early. That’s all well and good, but if the floaters start resting on their laurels and assuming they still have all that power, well … that’s not entertaining television.
So flip the MVP nominee choice to America. After three weeks of Elissa winning and being expected to continue to win, it would throw the house into a panic. All the players that assumed they had the upper hand to survive in the form of Elissa and her nomination no longer have it. Elissa herself no longer has any value in the game. She hasn’t won any competitions or done anything remarkable other than act as a tool for the house to use.
So now we’re left with three things that have to happen. 1. Elissa needs to stand up and actually play her own game IF she wants to stay put. Maybe she does, maybe she doesn’t – she’s a mom, she likely misses her kids, the house hasn’t exactly been kind to her. 2. The floaters that have been clinging to Elissa for safety now have to do the work themselves. They don’t have a patsy that can sit there and continue to get the blood on their hands anymore. 3. Strong players now have a crystal-clear shot at getting out the one advantage the weaker players had – and given Elissa’s shaky value outside of her MVP nom powers, the weaker players might see an opportunity to get her out now as well, while they still can. Because if she stays, and that power is placed back in her hands, there may be no getting rid of her until the bitter end.
This is honestly a really interesting twist, one of the better ones that they’ve had – but you can’t look at the twist as just the MVP nom, you have to look at the twist as MVP nom + guaranteed MVP winner. Either which way, it’s making for some really entertaining scrambling as the hamsters try to figure out what’s going on.
July 20, 2013 at 3:59 pm #271266
Elissa won POV!
July 20, 2013 at 4:03 pm #271268
The POV players are all soaking wet and lining up for the shower.
They had to find tiles of some sort in a pool, and there were numbers involved. It sounds like there might have been some punishments they had to take, too.
July 20, 2013 at 4:15 pm #271271
Judd is in solitary confinement and McCrae won $5000.
Howard, Spencer, and Candice are already scheming about what they’re going to do if Elissa doesn’t use the POV on herself (really guys? This house is LOSING it.)
Aryan was the first in the shower and is complaining about how hard it is to get the mud out.
Andy, as host, was dressed in a suit and tie. For some reason, GM was dressed up too, in her (infamous, ugly) one-sleeve dress.
July 20, 2013 at 4:16 pm #271272
Judd has solitary confinement, Aaryn has to dye her hair, McCrae won $5,000. Don’t know the rest…
July 20, 2013 at 4:18 pm #271273
Well now isn’t that interesting!
July 20, 2013 at 4:18 pm #271274
Well, at least McCrae is 20% of the way to getting Amanda’s engagement ring…
July 20, 2013 at 4:18 pm #271275
Amanda and Jessie are talking, and Amanda is worrying that McCrae is upset – sounds like he came really close to winning POV, and maybe was edged out by Elissa because he took a hit in point for the 5K? Jessie tells Amanda he’ll be okay, because by the end of the week, he’ll still be here and 5K richer, which is a good amout of money but not enough to put a target on his back. (Jessie’s smarter than she pretends to be, I think.)
July 20, 2013 at 4:20 pm #271276
July 20, 2013 at 4:26 pm #271279
Am I the only one who wishes he’d sit up straight once in a while!
July 20, 2013 at 4:32 pm #271280
Candice is talking game to Helen while cuddling with Howard. They’re talking about how it will be much easier to figure out who MVP is once they know who Elissa is replaced with. Candice lays the guilt on thick, saying she just doesn’t know who to trust though, because LAST week she was told McCrae was MVP when it was really Elissa, and no one consulted her on who the nom should be. Helen tells Candice Spencer wasn’t HER decision (LOL- Howard was and he’s RIGHT THERE!) and that she was lied to also.
July 20, 2013 at 4:43 pm #271282
I’d like him to sit up straight too. And cut that stupid hair.
July 20, 2013 at 4:47 pm #271285
Poor Judd… they supposedly built him a special room for his solitary?
This is the last we saw of him before his solitary started.
Meanwhile, all his “friends” are hanging out in HIS HoH room, eating HIS food, while they frantically go around and around, trying to figure out who MVP is. Elissa cast suspicion on Judd, while GM thinks it was Aryan. GM says, “Obviously SOMEONE is lying, because everyone is saying it’s not them… I mean, DUH! Obviously someone is a fucking rat!” lol…
July 20, 2013 at 4:49 pm #271287
Did they accidentally apply a cheesy instagram filter to one of the cameras?
July 20, 2013 at 4:52 pm #271288
I think the producers deciding to make “America” the MVP voters was the best idea they’ve had so far. It’s done what they’ve wanted the twist to do in the first place…. make the MVP vote a secret. Having Elissa the MVP week after week was such a bore and so predictable… and she told EVERYBODY! So, if in fact, they were going by viewer votes, it was definitely time to make a change. Now the house guests are going crazy trying to figure out who it is and who will go up when the VETO is used. It makes it a totally different game now. No one feels safe right now and that’s a good thing!
July 20, 2013 at 4:58 pm #271289
They’ve always put the solitary confinement person in the Have-Not room. That looks like where Judd was going to me.
July 20, 2013 at 4:58 pm #271290
No wonder Amanda was worried earlier… McCrae is losing his shit over taking the 5K. He doesn’t seem to realize that no one seems to care because it’s not a high enough amount, plus if there is anyone in the house that could get away with a HIGH amount, it’s him – because he’s a pizza boy, and everyone thinks he deserves the money. But every time a camera cuts to him, he’s worrying about it to someone else.
July 20, 2013 at 5:00 pm #271291
Maybe you’re right Chooch, but after he disappeared, there were still people hanging out in the HN room, and no one was moving their stuff out of there.
July 20, 2013 at 5:05 pm #271292
I’m trying to figure out how they’re going to handle the replacement nom situation… will it be the person with the NEXT most votes? And if so, will it be Amanda or GM? Or will Judd be able to choose one? And when do the HGs find out that America was MVP?
July 20, 2013 at 5:09 pm #271293
BB-Online caught this picture of the VETO set where they had an auction for the VETO. Elissa can’t play in the next VETO competition if she ‘s still in the BB house next week…. and Aaryn has to dye her hair BROWN.
July 20, 2013 at 5:12 pm #271294
Elissa took a punishment, too: she can’t play in veto next week. Which only serves to make everyone even more paranoid. You see, Elissa IS MVP, she’s a production mole, she put herself up, all the high-point options were closest to her in the veto comp, AND she has coup d’etat, which is why she was cool with not playing veto next week. That’s the narrative right now. Elissa might as well put on a cape and start flying around, because they all think she’s a superhero.
July 20, 2013 at 5:15 pm #271295
I can’t wait till Aryan’s hair is brown. Question: is she still going to complain about how she’s discriminated against and people expect her to be racist?
July 20, 2013 at 5:19 pm #271298
Well… I just don’t know what they’ve done with Judd??? Spencer is hanging out in the Have-Not room and it looks like he’s in no hurry to go anywhere…. seems to be just chillin’… I’m perplexed. We’ve always been able to watch the torture of the one who’s been put in confinement…. unless they’ve secretly taken Judd someplace we don’t know about… expect the unexpected…. that was the DR he went into when we last saw him. Where could he go on a Saturday night in LA?
July 20, 2013 at 5:20 pm #271300
Judd was in DR that whole time, it seems he’s not allowed to talk to anyone – he goes straight to the cockpit – it seems that’s where his solitary is.
He’s got a little bathroom setup behind that curtain.
July 20, 2013 at 5:22 pm #271301
Judd yelled out to BB, “How do I flush the toilet?” I don’t know whether to laugh or cry for him! Maybe I should feel worse for the poor CBS intern that has to REMOVE that toilet when it’s all done…
July 20, 2013 at 5:22 pm #271302
Right here is Judd in solitary confinement..Have not room? So where would the have nots go?
July 20, 2013 at 5:26 pm #271304
Well, I suppose if they wanted to be truly evil they COULD HAVE driven him south here to San Diego and taken him to Comic-Con. Definitely NOT solitary, but it WOULD be torture, so…
July 20, 2013 at 5:29 pm #271311
Oh ..okay, there he is! I can call off the search dogs! … But now where are Amanda & Pizza Boy going to have their hand-n-hand sex tonight?
July 20, 2013 at 5:29 pm #271312
Awwww… sometimes you find out who your true friends are.
They found out they’re allowed to talk to Judd through the door, so Andy, Helen, and Jessie come to say hi and keep him company. Also, he forgot his nicotine patches, so Jessie is going to find out if she can slide them to him under the door.
July 20, 2013 at 5:33 pm #271319
Oh LORD! He’s going to poop where Howard prays! Isn’t that sacrilegious or something?
July 20, 2013 at 5:36 pm #271325
It’s like Jameka praying to Boogie’s Jack Shack…
July 20, 2013 at 5:39 pm #271329
Now Helen is paranoid about Amanda.
“You can’t TRUST her!”
She’s even thinking Amanda was MVP. So if Amanda ends up as the replacement MVP nom, I think the house might explode.
July 20, 2013 at 5:45 pm #271337
This Amanda thing has taken a life of its own, VERY quickly. Helen convinced Elissa, and now the two of them are convincing Jessie. Jessie confirms that Amanda has been telling everyone that Elissa used MVP on herself. They decide they need to keep it a secret from Andy, because he’s “brainwashed by them.” They also are certain she’s related to the Donatos, and she’s an actress.
July 20, 2013 at 5:48 pm #271344
THis is what’s happening right now… an Anti-Amanda League meeting and McCrae keeping Judd company in solitary.
July 20, 2013 at 5:50 pm #271349
Yay! Great coverage everyone! Things are getting better. Can’t wait to see Aaryn brunette. I’m enjoying the rampant paranoia as well. I enjoy Amanda’s diary rooms but her pushiness is becoming too much for me. I, too, can see her trying to completely steamroll our poor pizza boy. I’m hoping he realizes this and doesn’t pursue her after the show. Judd or PB for the win for me right now. Also, I think Howard’s tattoos and brands may be from jail or gangs or both when he was younger. It would explain the struggling Christian, ability to control temper because he knows what he’s capable of doing, and the fact that the tattoos are so faded like jail ones tend to do over time, not like I’d know or anything…
July 20, 2013 at 5:50 pm #271350
Helen, who was the one saying to the other ladies not to tell Andy about their Amanda suspicions, of course waits less than 60 sec before telling Andy, “I HAVE TO WARN YOU.” She tells him not to trust Amanda and McCrae, and that the ENTIRE HOUSE is against them.
July 20, 2013 at 5:54 pm #271351
LOL! Dashley I just got the same picture of Helen telling Andy and was just going to post it!
July 20, 2013 at 5:56 pm #271354
LOL, I’ll let you take it then, Chooch – I’ve got some things to do, and I need to just stop doing this for a while. It’s like a compulsive thing for me at this point (aaggghh!)
July 20, 2013 at 5:58 pm #271357
I DID get this picture of the girls working on Jessie in the storeroom.
….and I realized that since Judd’s in Amanda & PB’s love-nest they’ll just use his HOH bed. Amanda’s got her ass firmly planted in it.
July 20, 2013 at 5:58 pm #271359
And I’ve been trying to figure out what “character” I’d be in the BB house but I don’t fit any really. I’m nice but blunt. I’m quiet but I speak up. I love people but I don’t trust them. I wouldn’t want to be a “Rachel” in competitions but I hate losing. Omg, I would be a floater!?! Well, one thing for sure, I would stay up late then wake up early to talk to the cameras/feed watchers. Hated Ragan but looked forward to his honest opinions and observations.
July 20, 2013 at 6:07 pm #271360
I have a feeling I’d do okay in the house. I like talking to people, I’m ridiculously chatty if you get me in the right mood, but I also like looking at not what people are saying, but what they aren’t saying and why they aren’t saying it. I don’t know if I’d fare too well in physical competitions though. Mental, puzzle or memorization? Sure thing. And I’d enjoy talking to the cameras when nobody was around – I miss that from this season, although Judd has given shoutouts to several different sites, which was nice, and McCrae has talked to the camera once or twice, too – I think he might do more of it as the house empties out. Do I think I could take the whole thing? Eh…not so much, not unless people in there were really, really dumb.
Plus the thought of being stuck in a half dozen rooms and a backyard with a bunch of strangers for three months is not the most appealing thing ever.

Howard Howard Howard…. he’s telling Kaitlin he sees things that most people don’t see because he has a pure heart. He is pure of heart and mind and when you have a pure heart and mind, you can see people for who they really are and where they really are coming from. He explains to her that Amanda is the type of person who preys on the weakness of others.
July 20, 2013 at 6:30 pm #271362
Amanda is seriously being bitten in the ass right now – Elissa is blabbing to Howard about how Amanda was demanding he go up last week, Kaitlin is saying Amanda keeps telling Aaryn she’s safe, Helen thinks Amanda is a liar, etcetcetc. If the situation doesn’t change drastically in the next few days, Amanda may be on her way out – although with Judd locked in solitary confinement, he can’t even participate in all this discussion unless someone talks to him under the door. In order to do that, they’d have to be in the main hallway.
Helen has a curfew of 8pm, so she can’t stay up late. If Amanda plays her cards right, she might stand a chance. I hope she doesn’t end up going – honestly, she’s one of the few people that’s actually entertaining to watch on the show itself.
July 20, 2013 at 6:48 pm #271363
The Amanda Hate-Gate is spreading… Elissa is now telling Howard about how she was approached by Amanda and PB last week and they were adamant that she make Howard her 3rd nominee and if she had the chance to make him the replacement nominee to do that when she put up Spencer instead of him. They were furious when she didn’t do what they told her to do. Elissa told them that Amanda says that Howard is always using the “race” card in his game play. She also said she is NOT the MVP this week. She says that Amanda is an actress, it’s her profession and she’s not to be believed. She’s good at her job. Howard excuses himself to go pray and Elissa swears that she’s not MVP again to Candice. She says that Amanda is trying to say she nominated herself. She says you can’t even do that! Candice tells her that “Yes you can!” and Elissa says how do you know that and Candice tells her that Judd asked and the DR said that the MVP can nominate themselves. Elissa says, “Are you sure?” and Candice says that yes it’s true.
July 20, 2013 at 7:06 pm #271366
Yeah, right Candice. The person who told you this also happens to be the person in Solitary. How convienient.
July 20, 2013 at 7:09 pm #271367
Elissa & Candice go up to the HOH room to confront Amanda about her scheming and lies….
Candice is calling her out on the “race card” comment. She’s telling her that this week is personal and not to fuck with her and Howard this week. She has had to put up with all the Shaniqua talk, the black fish, the bed tossing, the token black and all that crap and she just wants Amanda to back off for this week. She wants Aaryn gone and when that happens then next week we will start a new week. She heard that Amanda was telling Aaryn she was safe this and was NOt going home and not to worry. Amanda wants to know who told her that. Candice tells her it doesn’t matter who told her that, but Aaryn is right outside the door and they can bring her in here right now and ask her if Amanda told her she was safe this week. Candice just wants her to know right now that she and Howard do NOT want some racist mean bitch to make it to the jury house. They need to go right now. Amanda wants to know if it was Gina Marie and Candice says it doesn’t matter who, it’s the fact that this was suppose to be an easy week and Aaryn was suppose to go. Candice says to fuck with us another week, just leave us alone this week. Amanda says “Wait! what are you saying… you think we are coming after you?” and Candice says “I’m not saying that at all, I don’t have any idea what is going on with you, I’m just saying that if you thought I was coming after McCrae that you’d come to me and discuss it.” Amanda wants to know when Aaryn told her she was safe and Candice said she didn’t tell me, it was an open statement she said in the kitchen. Candice is trying to not fight, she’s coming to let them know up front what she wants to happen and that this is important and personal. This is not battle time. Elissa swears again that she is not the MVP, something or someone else is responsible for this MVP nomination. Elissa asks if America put her on the block and they all said NO at the same time! They think it must be Jeremy.
July 20, 2013 at 7:13 pm #271368
“I can’t wait till Aryan’s hair is brown. Question: is she still going to complain about how she’s discriminated against and people expect her to be racist?”
I expect her to see this as validation. “See, I told you that I was discriminated against because I was a blue eyed blonde from the south! Look what they made me do! They turned me into a brunette and everyone knows that brunettes are ugly!
July 20, 2013 at 7:29 pm #271369
A group chat with Judd under the door! Helen is talking about her soon to be bedtime at 8pm and she’s wondering if she has to stay there and whether she can eat in bed, take food in there with her. Judd says she’s sure she can get up to go to the bathroom but can she get up to get a drink? Judd tells her she better go to the DR now and find out.
July 20, 2013 at 7:52 pm #271370
I hope that Aryan not only gets her hair dyed but that she also gets a nice tight-curl perm to go with it.
July 20, 2013 at 7:55 pm #271372
Aaryn came into the HOH room all on her own and the first thing Amanda did was ask her if she told her she was safe this week. Aaryn told her no. she said “Everyone in this house is trying to frame me!” This girl really doesn’t understand what she’s done that makes her so disliked by everybody. She comes right out and asks them why they all want her out. Candice just totally pretends she didn’t just ask that question and starts to talk about Judd’s solitary confinement room. Then they start talking about the VETO competition. Aaryn said she started getting her numbers along the sides and they were high ones. Candice said that was where Elissa got her numbers too and that’s how she won. Pizza Boy again says he feels bad for winning the money. They all start talking about the MVP again. Elissa joins them and they try to figure out who might have it. they all agree that none of them have it. They come to the conclusion that one of the evicted houseguest could be the MVP.
July 20, 2013 at 8:04 pm #271373
Wow, I thought that something like this would happen but not so quickly. All the paranoia is making people realize that Amanda is pushy and a strong player. Helen is already starting to take advantage of it and having Elissa and some of her other people do her dirty work while she goes to be…love it!
The only potential problem is going to be Howard and Candice since they want Aryan out now instead of backdooring Amanda. But, I think Helen was already anticipating this problem since she’s been thinking of keeping Aryan around. My guess is that if Amanda goes this week, that Candice and Howard are going to become the next targets. This would be a great time for someone figure out and use the vote-split thing and mess with everyone even more.
July 20, 2013 at 8:09 pm #271374
OMG! They are so clueless. How can they think that Jeremy or another evicted HG got the MVP? Next, they are probably going to start blaming Boofles, saying that they are not jealous that Elissa is coming through as more likeable than them and want her off.
July 20, 2013 at 8:16 pm #271375
What he hell is going on here?
Okay… it’s a sweat suit… right?
Look what I can do!
July 20, 2013 at 8:19 pm #271376
Elissa is trying to sweat, that’s why the saran wrap. Amanda said something about Elissa looking like a tuna fish sandwich. XD
July 20, 2013 at 8:27 pm #271378
I cant find the picture now, but I KNOW I saw a picture of Aaryn with her hair red, so dying it brown will be no biggie for her.
July 20, 2013 at 8:35 pm #271379
Helen had to go to bed at 8:00 and she’s not allowed to talk to anyone at all.
And everyone realize that they forgot to have Nick’s Memorial Service yesterday. Candice is the one to bring it up to Gina Marie and she says she knows, but realizes that things were so busy and happening too fast. I guess she had Nick’s chap stick with her at the VETO comp.
I’m going to take a break now… I need to watch some TV.
July 20, 2013 at 8:36 pm #271380
I hope I don’t miss Aaryn dying her hair tho…..
July 20, 2013 at 8:45 pm #271381
If PB really won $5k, then I think that Judd should really be in solitary and Helen should really have to go to bed at 8pm. Perhaps if the losers had to actually lose, they might not be so happy for the winner of the challenge after all.
Don’t those people know that they can just stand there and talk to Mr. Solitary confinement through the door? They don’t have to lay on, and put their faces on that nasty carpet to talk under the door! WTF is wrong with them?!
July 20, 2013 at 8:50 pm #271383
Amanda and Elissa have moved on to wrapping their faces for the sake of beauty. Or they’re just trying to surreptitiously kill each other.
July 20, 2013 at 9:22 pm #271384
Spencer goes to talk to Aaryn, he tells her everyone wants her out. She says why her? Spencer says they’re going down that side of the house (I’m guessing the whole Jeremy/younger side etc) systematically. Aaryn says then why me first? Why not Kaitlin? Spencer awkwardly avoids saying “Because everyone thinks you’re a racist bitch” and instead lamely says well that’s the consensus of the house.
July 20, 2013 at 9:27 pm #271385
Cameras are all fucked up all over the house right now – there is audio coming in on all feeds, but like, no picture. Driving me nuts, because it’s hard to tell who’s talking. Think I’ll shut off the feeds for the night.
July 20, 2013 at 10:30 pm #271386
ew aryan looks like an angry midget in that pic facing off with a giant. she’s terrible but ten bucks says whatever color she dyes her hair is gonna look good.
July 20, 2013 at 10:32 pm #271387
I mean little person.
July 20, 2013 at 10:49 pm #271388
I hope she will be given a product placement “Nice and Easy” box of hair dye. And she has to apply it by herself.
July 21, 2013 at 12:37 am #271393
IT’S MCCRAE’S BIRTHDAY!
The boys went up to the HoH room where McCrae was hiding and held him down. At the stroke of midnight, in comes Amanda in a makeshift dominatrix outfit saying “I HEARD IT WAS SOMEBODY’S BIRTHDAY!” to everyone’s delight.
The guys pull up his shirt so she can give him 24 kisses on his chest, and then she has them hold him down on the bed so she can give him 24 spankings. …I think she enjoyed that part a little TOO much!
Everyone is laughing and counting with Amanda, when she’s all done they cheer and then start singing happy birthday to McCrae – FISH – they come back and Elissa (who is drunk by now), says it was a nice moment that they’ll never see because production probably cut it out for the singing (it’s okay Elissa, we saw the rest). Drunk Elissa then says production hates her and flips the camera off – sadly, none of the cameras were actually ON her at the moment because I would’ve loved a screencap of THAT one!
July 21, 2013 at 12:42 am #271398
OKAY… so everyone was reallllly drunk (Except for Helen, who had her 8 PM curfew, and Judd, who is in solitary with an alarm that goes of every 9 minutes). Amanda decides she’s going to do something special for McCrae’s 24th birthday at midnight. She tried on a number of outfits, and finally settled on a dominatrix look.
Everyone helped out! Spencer, Howard, and Candice tied him up:
Then Amanda gave him 24 kisses on his stomach, followed by 24 lashes with a whip she fashioned out of household objects:
Afterwards, McCrae was a very happy 24-year-old:
July 21, 2013 at 12:43 am #271399
July 21, 2013 at 12:46 am #271400
Sadly, ANDY was downstairs and missed all the fun! He came up shortly after, and they saw him on spy cam. All at once, every keeled over and began fake snoring just before he opened the door. He fake tiptoed in and then everyone started laughing.
It looks like pretty much everyone else was up there except for Helen (who is in bed because of 8pm curfew) and Judd (who is in solitary confinement. Poor Judd!)
July 21, 2013 at 12:47 am #271401
Hahaha that’s okay Dashley – it was totally worth the double recap and absolutely hysterical – for those with the live feeds, flashback to midnight in the HOH room, I think all four cams were focused there for the show.
July 21, 2013 at 12:49 am #271402
Yeah, meanwhile, it’s not just flipping off production – Elissa is losing it. Every other thing out of her mouth is a complaint about production and a “they hate me.” At one point, she even made Amanda cry because she was called Amanda chubby and told her she looked like a stripper. Aryan was there to comfort her.
July 21, 2013 at 12:51 am #271403
We gotta go back to before midnight, because at one point, Andy was walking around in heels and not doing very well with it, so it makes for a funny picture. This whole thing was on mute on my computer in the background while I watched a movie on TV
July 21, 2013 at 12:53 am #271404
Wow, Amanda is flipping out right now. Crying in the bathroom. Apparently whatever she said went beyond chubby Dashley, because Amanda is totally losing it.
July 21, 2013 at 12:59 am #271405
Ohhh shit, yeah so after going back a bit it looks like not ten minutes after the little show Elissa started going off. There was the chubby comment, and then they were all joking that Amanda should put whipped cream on her chest in a big M for McCrae, and Elissa said that she would seriously vomit if that happened and said that would be really gross. That’s when Amanda headed downstairs with Aaryn on an errand for something in the kitchen that turned into a full-on cry session in the bathroom downstairs.
July 21, 2013 at 1:02 am #271408
Elissa apparently got called to the DR after that, said she was going to be the next person evicted. Also said Amanda looked like the “Spearmint Rhino.” Dang, I don’t think she had more than a glass of wine, the hell was that all about?
July 21, 2013 at 1:03 am #271409
WW, I’m curious: how do we have the EXACT SAME picture of McCrae receiving the lashes? It’s straight up weird, because mine is a screen shot from my computer.
A couple of outtakes from the preparation for McCrae’s birthday surprise…
Amanda’s cowgirl outfit:
Andy walking in heels (and he looks like a baby giraffe walking for the first time – SUPER awkward.)
July 21, 2013 at 1:07 am #271410
I DON’T KNOW Dashley, I was wondering that too! Mine’s also a screenshot from my computer – we apparently hit pause at exactly the same moment. OUR BRAINS ARE CONNECTED
July 21, 2013 at 1:11 am #271411
Yeah, Amanda, Aryan, Kaitlin, GM, and Jessie are all hating on Elissa in the bathroom now, comparing stories of thinly-veiled insults and bitchy moments she has had. I believe Elissa is still in DR.
I’ve heard houseguests talk to each other about this side of Elissa, but I never saw it until tonight. I wonder if this would be happening if the “MVP” hadn’t put her on the block this morning. Maybe she really just can’t handle pressure.
July 21, 2013 at 1:13 am #271412
We should like, play the lottery or something. I don’t know. WHAT DO WE DO WITH THIS NEWLY DISCOVERED SUPERPOWER? I refuse to accept that the only thing it’s good for is BB screencapping.
July 21, 2013 at 1:15 am #271413
Apparently – and this is weird – they’re saying Elissa knows way too much about production, that she knows the names of everyone in their, their wives, was mentioning where they worked, that’s why we kept getting fish. AND – now mind you this is Aaryn and GM saying this – they said the veto comp was rigged in her favor, that all the “big numbers” were in Elissa’s lane. Aaryn said she had to go into Elissa’s lane to get any number that was bigger than a 5. I don’t know what the PoV comp was exactly, they said something about blackjack, tiles, being in mud, so…uh, good luck guessing until they actually show it.
July 21, 2013 at 1:23 am #271415
Elissa’s out of DR – Amanda asked her if she got in trouble, she said she was told never to say those things again, and shrugged. Amanda was clearly looking for an apology, but didn’t get one.
July 21, 2013 at 1:51 am #271416
I’m not sure these HGs are ever going to get alcohol again as long as they’re in that house.
After Amanda’s sexy show, Elissa’s bitchy meltdown, and Amanda’s subsequent cryfest, we got more racial shit.
Spencer, in HoH, called Helen Kim Jong Un again (not the first time), asked out loud, “was that racist?” When his fellow HGs answered that it kinda was, he talked through it and decided it wasn’t.
GM, in the bathroom with Kaitlin, said about Candice, “I can’t stand that bitch. Howard don’t like your fucking fat, skanky ass. I’m so white, I’m so black, I don’t know what to be!”
July 21, 2013 at 1:55 am #271417
Meanwhile when Jessie, Helen, and Judd get up (and out of confinement) they’ll discover their alliance has fallen apart. This season…so bad it’s good! Or so good it’s bad?! Best Worst season evah!
July 21, 2013 at 2:01 am #271419
I’m sure the alcohol clashed with whatever cocktail of medications Elissa takes, overriding whatever fog she normally drifts through to allow the real her out. I mean, anyone who wraps herself in cellophane in order to sweat has a serious personality disorder.
And I was gonna say, damn, Amanda should eat slop all the time. Too bad about the fake tits, but it looks like the got the ultra-realistic nearly-30 saggy model, so it kind of works for her.
I’m loving how quickly the girls in the house shift back and forth. It’s like watching a school of fish.
July 21, 2013 at 2:02 am #271420
So then Elissa cornered Kaitlin and Aryan in the bathroom, and asked lots of questions about Jeremy that they construed as rude, and like she was making fun of him, or something. Later on, after Elissa leaves, Aryan has a tantrum in the bathroom because “My blood is boiling.” Kaitlin thinks she’s referring to the Elissa conversation, and Aryan says, “No, it’s because anyone else can say anything in this house, including racial shit, but as soon as I say something, it’s misconstrued and I’m SICK OF IT. This is real shit, and it can fuck things up for me, even outside of this house.”
The others in the bathroom try to help out, Andy says that people watching live feeds will know the truth. Spencer offers that all Aryan has to do to make the rumors go away is give Howard a blowjob. (Sigh.) Aryan starts complaining about how “public figures only have to like, take a shit wrong or something, and suddenly they’re gay. If anyone ever asks me a question about being racist or something, I’ll just look at them and tell them to never ask me another question like that EVER AGAIN.”
God, please please PLEASE let Julie Chen ask her about it.
BTW, all this is going on with that stupid alarm going off in Judd’s solitary confinement – he’s been sleeping through it for hours.
July 21, 2013 at 2:03 am #271421
I don’t think I’d qualify GM’s comment as racist — she was clearly referring to Candice’s adoption sob stories.
July 21, 2013 at 2:17 am #271422
Itchy, I do qualify it as racist – but I’m much more offended by GinaMarie, of all people, calling someone a skank.
July 21, 2013 at 2:24 am #271423
I really hope they start showing some of Spencer’s stupidity soon. They let Asshat Jeremy off easy, though. Maybe the producers only want to pick on the girls who are mean to their Pet Elissa?
July 21, 2013 at 2:28 am #271424
Well, even if she’s just repeating Candice’s own whining? Of course, from everything she’s said, we know she’s an idiot, so yeah, she’s already dug her hole.
But my take on GM is that she thinks she’s on Bad Girls Club, where this kind of talk is permitted, and she’s just been trying to keep up with Aryan Aaryn and Kaitlin and the others. GM’s more of the “trashy ho” type herself. She would have been awesome on Jersey Shore.
Not to worry, though. She’s near the top of my list of least-favorite players this season.
July 21, 2013 at 2:44 am #271426
Okay well, it’s late, I can’t listen to Judd’s alarm constantly going off (I don’t know why so many HGs are hanging out in the bathroom tonight with that stupid alarm right next to them), McCrae and Amanda have been off the feeds ever since they kicked out the other HGs from HoH to have sexytimes, Candice and Howard are decompressing from the crazy day and getting ready for bed, and so I think I will too.
I’ll say goodnight with one final note: I finally saw a houseguest wash their hands WITH SOAP today! Kaitlin wins the award for being the only hamster with acceptable hygiene! Congratulations, Kaitlin!
July 21, 2013 at 3:06 am #271427
Another Jeremy interview. They ask him some good questions but alas he plays dumb:
July 21, 2013 at 3:07 am #271428
EW: How do you think Kaitlin is going to react to a certain term you used to describe a private part of hers?
McGuire: [Laughs] I don’t know because I don’t know what you’re talking about. But hopefully, she reacts well.
July 21, 2013 at 3:33 am #271429
Yeah, people are really taking it easy on him. I keep waiting for someone to ask him to conjugate the verb “to jew.” But no one has.
And he thinks Les Moonves is going to let him on Amazing Race?
July 21, 2013 at 7:38 am #271430
OK, so here is my theory of what is going on with Elissa. Before the show started, Rachel probably gave her all this insider info on the production team so that the could try and be buddy buddy with them. This was probably part of a strategy to play with a much lower profile than Rachel and use those connections to get herself further in the game. When the show first started and she got all those MVP, everything was well. She felt confident that production had her back to the point that she wasn’t even scared of going up on the block. And, most HGs consulted her about game moves because they thought the MVP was a given.
With the MVP rule changes, she started feeling paranoid that the other storylines were pushing her to the side. Even though it seems like production tried to help her out with the POV, she started to think that they don’t want to deal with her anymore. She probably then over-compensated and started using all the insider personal info on the production team to try to get back in their good graces. In the process she reinforced all the paranoia that the HGs have that she is a production plant. Meanwhile, production started getting nervous that all her talk about them to the HGs and on camera could out them for behind-the-scenes manipulation so they started scolding her.
Now, things are falling apart for her: 1) The HGs are getting even more paranoid about her insider position; 2) because of this week’s MVP rule change, they no longer see her as an important asset; 3) production is also annoyed with her. As Itchy pointed out, all that stuff combined with the alcohol has started to penetrate all those protective layers of medication she has been under and we are beginning to see the Riley gene starting to come out.
I’m sure there will be more crying, tantrums when things are going bad for her and the obnoxious gloating when she is feeling good. Its going to be good, but hopefully it won’t get in the way of all the other great stuff that has been unfolding for the last few days.
July 21, 2013 at 10:12 am #271442
Hmm….something’s wrong. I could’ve sworn I left a comment a couple hours ago….
July 21, 2013 at 10:51 am #271443
For the Amanda Lovers:
July 21, 2013 at 11:32 am #271446
You know how much it would cost for the show to use “Happy birthday?” A whopping $1500. That’s all. If the show’s producers had any smarts, they would have Betty Crocker sponsor a quick moment so they could show the celebration.
July 21, 2013 at 11:56 am #271452
I really hope we get to see Elissa’s freakout. Maybe someone’s put the clip up on Youtube?
July 21, 2013 at 12:05 pm #271454
It kept going to *FISH* too many times because she was using producers names and talking about production. there isn’t anything to post. The camera wasn’t even on her when she was flipping them off.
July 21, 2013 at 12:37 pm #271456
Notice how Aaryn who thought she had Judd’s back, hasn’t visited him ONCE in solitary.
July 21, 2013 at 12:56 pm #271457
I’m not going to spend the day in the BB house. I have to take my truck to get it fixed… so I’m going to actually LEAVE my house!
Just so you all know, Andy has figured out for sure that America is the MVP. He told Helen and Jessie that this morning. Being the only real BB fan, Andy says that he thinks as a viewer, if he was watching and Elissa continually got MVP “I would vote to nominate her.” He says, “For every 1 Rachel fan, there are 2 that hate her.” See, he knows what he’s talking about!
Helen has been trying to convince him that Amanda & PB are evil and he needs to dis-associate himself from them. she tries to say that the house has turned against them and they are planning to get rid of Amanda. Andy is reluctant to do that. he says they have done nothing to make him not trust them. Helen tells him it’s not so much Pizza Boy, but it’s Amanda they are after. She never says that she’s involved in this witch hunt. She tells him that it’s Aaryn this week and then they are going after Amanda next. Her and Andy need to do what’s best for them. They talk about the fight with Elissa and Amanda last night. Helen was in bed, so knew nothing about it. Andy says Amanda overreacted. Helen tells him that the 2 of them need to stay out of it … far, far, away from it.
Another thing… Helen got up at the crack of dawn to a pig sty… she cleaned the whole house. Then she told Judd to make sure he washed his sheets before he lays on that HOH bed again!
When Elissa got up, she made the remark to Helen how much cleaner the place was now that Jeremy was gone…. Helen looked at her and said “I’ve just finished cleaning everything!” Elissa went to tell Judd that the DR told her to tell him that he has to turn off the alarm when it beeps. Judd slept right thru the beeping all night long and it beeped continually, making BB crazy, not Judd! Judd said they may as well just unhook it cuz it doesn’t bother him at all. He told Elissa that Amanda was crying in the bathroom last night. she asked him why and he said he couldn’t here why. She said she wondered what upset her so bad? They were having fun last night.
If there’s anything else I forget…
July 21, 2013 at 1:38 pm #271458
Thanks for the update Chooch.
Hmm… Blackout drunk or playing dumb?
Maybe her meds did react with the alcohol and she doesn’t remember anything?
July 21, 2013 at 3:04 pm #271485
Anyone know anything about Adderal? I’ve had two people in my life, both heavy drinkers, get on Addie (sigh) and mix the two to awful results. Both of their lives spiraled out of control, they stopped caring about anything and everything. ONe ended up divorced and living with a guy with no job who had to blow clean (no alcohol) to drive. The other is in AA and trying desperately to stay clean. I do think he’s still on meds tho.
I know one other person who’s on Adderal, but he doesn’t drink, so I guess it’s ok with him.
I’m personally concerned that this over medicated society we live in is removing too much empathy from us, especially kids. Its like their education ends, and they’re already addicts.
Anyhoo, would love to hear what you all think, as always, I love a spirited debate.
thank you all so much for all the coverage, it’s so nice to have this distraction!!! xoxo

My daughter’s boyfriend takes it for his ADHD (attention deficit hyper disorder) to help him stay focused and alert. He says it kinda like speed to him. If you over medicate, it can kill you. He doesn’t take it half the time and instead sells it for big bucks because it’s a huge money maker on the street.
July 21, 2013 at 4:34 pm #271498
Seems like half of my nephews and nieces are on something or other. It’s a weird thing. One nephew clearly needed something, at least when he was a kid, he was pretty much over the top. But then, I was a hyperactive kid, but my mother refused to put me on meds (they were pretty new back then) and I’m glad she did. But still, I was hard to handle, for the other kids and the teachers, which probably made life a lot more difficult for me. It’s hard to know.
I wonder about adults taking this shit though.
July 21, 2013 at 5:38 pm #271500
Jumping in here: I had three different docs tell me I should try Adderall because I had every major indicator for severe adult ADHD. I spent years refusing it because there’s so much judgmental shit out there about adults who take this stuff and how it’s just legal speed and all that. I totally believed it and talked all sorts of shit too. Then I finally caved when I started having really bad anxiety attacks and my GP told me that if ADHD was actually what was wrong, that treating it would help with everything else as well.
I’ve been taking a low-dose of Adderall daily for the past five years, and the difference it has made in my life is unreal. I’m better in social situations and my anxiety level is much lower and I can sit down to do something and just get it done without feeling like I’m going to burst into tears of frustration because it’s taking so damn long. People with ADD are operating on a much lower base level of dopamine in the brain. Dopamine is a huge part of the reward center, and not having enough of it makes you prone to bounce all over the place because your brain isn’t rewarding you for following anything through to completion. Kids that take it as a study aid or overperform are essentially fixing something that isn’t wrong, and thus flooding their brains with extra dopamine they don’t actually need.
I’ve never gone asking for a higher dose. I actually had my doc lower my dose about two years ago because I felt like I could function with less. While overmedication is certainly a problem these day, there are plenty of people like me who take Adderall because it means being able to function on the SAME level as everyone else. Not some higher one. I don’t drink heavily or frequently, but I do drink. The only danger I’ve found with Adderall and alcohol as a combo is that you can drink a lot more without passing out or blacking out, so if you’re prone to drinking until you drop, then the combo could kill you.
I don’t think Elissa is on Adderall or any uppers at all. I’ve known plenty of junkies in my life and Elissa looks to me like she’s hitting the Benzo’s hard. Either that or painkillers, but considering she hasn’t mentioned any pain conditions that would warrant being jacked up on Oxy’s all day, my money’s on something like Xanax. Mixing downers like Xanax with alcohol has a severe potentiating effect. One glass of wine if you’re already on a cocktail of Benzo’s is more than enough to send you into sloppy drunk territory. And if she is on opiate pain-killers, I speak from experience (dated a Percocet addict for a while) and opiates, especially mixed with booze, can make people MEAN. Not like normal mean girl mean, but like look you dead in the eyes and tell you with zero emotion everything they think is wrong with you and how you should go kill yourself.
Anyway, sorry for the pharmaceuticals lesson. Back to lurking for me.
July 21, 2013 at 5:38 pm #271501
OK, so I just had to share this somewhere with someone: Nick probably just watched GM’s performance sucking down that froyo and is pissed at himself for not giving her a chance…
July 21, 2013 at 6:07 pm #271510
Thanks, the miki, sounds like you’ve got it working for you, and frankly, all the jumping around, I do that all the time! LOL!!! I’m probably a little bit of everything, like dyslexia etc, but so far so good.
And I get why they give it to kids, but I have one sister whose family has been on everything forever. I get it that some of this stuff runs in families, but I’ve never been comfortable with it. It felt like she drugged them coz she couldn’t deal with them. She’s yelled more than once, “Did you take your pills today!” It’s not my place to tell them what to do . . .
Elissa’s outburst almost seemed bi-polar in description, kind of out of nowhere . . .
July 21, 2013 at 6:25 pm #271515
Hey guys! Time to do some catching up!
So after last night’s drama, Elissa basically made Amanda apologize to HER to make the tension go away, and then spent the entire day telling everyone how she NEVER talks about Aaryn, Kaitlin, and GM. I guess we can add Elissa to the list of this year’s HGs that don’t understand irony.
Meanwhile, everyone else seems to have calmed down from “Amanda’s the evil MVP controlling the house” narrative, except for Helen, who is still heavily pushing the idea, but it’s not getting her as far as it got her yesterday. Candice still doesn’t trust Amanda though, because she’s pretty sure (and she’s right) that Amanda is the main person trying to get Howard out of the house. Of course, Helen is the one she complains to about this, and Helen was totally complicit in the whole plan to evict Howard. But for now, Amanda’s eviction isn’t as high on Candice’s priority list as Aryan’s eviction.
Also, there was some kind of he said/she said drama between Howard and Kaitlin, of all people.
Judd made it out of solitary! Most of the HGs were there to cheer him on, and they saved a beer for him from last night, which he started drinking immediately.
Still no veto ceremony, so we still don’t know who the replacement nominee is. Tonight, Amanda and McCrae are planning a birthday dinner date, and I think McCrae might finally give Amanda that ring he made for her.
July 21, 2013 at 7:03 pm #271516
Tonight’s show sucked. The only part I liked was when Judd put Amanda’s key last. That was a very clear “you are not HOH and I’m going to nominate who I want, and I’ll nominate you if you keep trying to boss me around.”
So what’s the mood in the house now?
July 21, 2013 at 7:03 pm #271517
Adderal and other ADD drugs can be very good for people who actually have the need, but there are plenty of other who just abuse it. I’ve had a couple of friends and went on it as adults and it worked great for them. One other friend, didn’t do so well, it worked fine for a few months but eventually stared getting panic attacks and suicidal thoughts so he went off it. He tried a couple of other ones but the same thing happened so he is now looking at alternatives with no meds.
The bigger problem is the abuse by those who don’t need it. I used to teach at a fancy college and a few of my students told me that they could get crib sheets that told them how to answer the long questionnaires that psychiatrist gave them to figure out if you had ADHD so that you could get your own prescription. Kids who were on prescription also often would have their meds stolen from their room, especially before finals. There was a whole culture of grinding the pills into a powder and the snorting them, supposedly to make the effect more intense so that it would help you cram before an exam or big paper. The funny thing is, that the couple of good students that I knew and who admitted to having tried that said that it did more harm than good when it came to papers. They felt that it tended to over-focus them on small details in an obsessive sort of way and lost their ability to see the big picture. They could crank out a paper quickly but often got mediocre grades because they were long but totally rambling and at times incoherent.
July 21, 2013 at 7:14 pm #271519
Spencer let McManda know that Amanda’s name is getting floated around and the house is turning against her. Amanda’s having a quiet freakout over this, and asks Spencer why it’s just her and not McCrae too – Spencer told her that the house views McCrae as being carried by her. When Amanda and McCrae are alone, she actually tells him that she doesn’t particularly like Aryan, but at least she trusts her, because Aryan always tells her the truth, unlike some of the people they’re allied with.
McCrae tells Helen that they’re hearing Amanda’s name floated and Helen, says “As long as we all stay together, it should never be a problem! We have the votes to protect all of us!” (Helen is the one who started the anti-Amanda campaign.) McCrae asks Helen to tell him as soon as she hears anything against Amanda so that they can work to neutralize the threat.
July 21, 2013 at 7:16 pm #271520
I guess adderal is the no-doze of the kids these days (damn, I said it again!)
Thanks for all the insight everyone!
July 21, 2013 at 7:52 pm #271521
I have to chime in here about the Adderall. My son who is now 20 has Asberger’s and ADHD. We were adamant not to put in on anything and his school life was hellish. Finally in 5th grade we tried Ritalin then we switched to Adderall in middle school and through high school. The effect was that it calmed him down completely and allowed him to focus. We tried different dosages as he grew, usually less. He went off it completely as an adult because he felt like it “dragged him down” kind of like a fog. But while he was in school it helped so much.
Here’s the interesting thing – he deliberatly will drink caffeine and it has the same effect. Instead of hyping him up like everyone else, coffee or coke slows him down.
It’s ridiculous to think adults are abusing it – how stupid. I heard that a lot of girls like it because it’s an appetite suppressant (which is definitely one of the side effects).
Anyway – what a great couple of days I had to catch up on!
July 21, 2013 at 9:02 pm #271537
In other news, Judd decided to chitchat with the cameras for a bit while he was in solitary confinement: http://www.rickey.org/big-brother-15-judd-says-hi-from-solitary-alarm-clock-confinement-video/
The video’s at the bottom of the post. SO FRIGGEN ADORABLE. Really, my opinion of Judd hasn’t really done anything but go up since the first time I saw him.
July 21, 2013 at 9:11 pm #271548
So at dinner, McCrae finally asked Amanda… “Will you be my Big Brother wife?”
She says yes! And runs out to announce to everyone… “We’re engaged!”
When she finds out that Elissa helped McCrae “pick out” the ring, she asks Elissa to be her Maid of Honor, and Elissa says yes!
July 21, 2013 at 9:18 pm #271564
Amanda decides it’s going to be a Jewish wedding, and then when she’s not in the room, Elissa decides she is officially the wedding planner, Andy will officiate, and Judd will be Best Man. Candice names herself dress designer.
And then GM was in the backyard bitching about how McManda are allowed to be together, but they have to break up everyone ELSE’S relationships. Even Kaitlin rolls her eyes at that one, and she and Jeremy were the next couple in line in terms of closeness.
On a side note, am I the only one wondering where Aryan’s brown hair is? How come she hasn’t had to dye it yet? Does anyone else know? I WANT TO SEE HER SUFFER.
July 21, 2013 at 10:32 pm #271571
Ever since McCrae and Amanda got “engaged” GinaMarie has been SUPER pissed for some reason. Because of that, everyone’s favorite topic of conversation has been how ridiculous she is – seriously, the ENTIRE house has been making fun of her all night, behind her back.
But the award for the BEST GinaMarie joke goes to Judd, who said to Amanda, “If [your boyfriend at home] isn’t your ex-boyfriend by now, him and GinaMarie should definitely hook up.”
July 21, 2013 at 10:51 pm #271572
I’m thinking that Aaryn doesn’t actually have to dye her hair – I think she made an offhand comment about how her hair was going to be brown just because of the mud they had to slog through in the PoV comp. Which is a MAJOR BUMMER if that’s the case – but if she had to dye her hair, they would’ve made her do it by now, since Judd and Helen are both doing their punishments already.
July 21, 2013 at 11:10 pm #271573
Yeah, you’re probably right. Oh well, it was a nice thought.
Helen is so sneaky; I’m starting to want to see her exposed.
July 21, 2013 at 11:44 pm #271574
I also liked the way that Judd arranged the keys, (J)Peachy. It was nice seeing Amanda squirm.
July 21, 2013 at 11:51 pm #271575
I’m a big fan of how Helen is playing the game. Sure she’s being sneaky and manipulative, but every underhanded move she’s made has been playing the game. She hasn’t been mean or nasty or generally shitty to ANYONE just for the sake of being mean. Yay for people playing the game (and playing it well) without taking cheap shots just for the sake of revenge or pettiness.
July 22, 2013 at 12:01 am #271576
Have any of you noticed that Judd seems to have a crush on Aaryn. They have a lot of moments together where he’s very sweet to her. I know she’s not interested but she’s noticed and is using it to her advantage. That may also be why he hasn’t made a move on Jessie and why he’s distancing himself from her. And as of late he’s been trying to keep Aaryn in the house and convince others to get Kaitlin out.
July 22, 2013 at 12:12 am #271579
Helen is a perfect example of why they need to stop casting wanna-be’s.
She came in there with no agenda other than play a game and win $.She already has a stable, put together life to go back to. (other than that “crying to get the kids to do what you want, thing)..thats just weird…
Anyway, we need more Remi’s and Helens and Sarge’s,etc. Folks that are there to play a game and win money. When th
July 22, 2013 at 12:48 am #271582
I’ve noticed that about Judd. Aryan is putting her best pretty/mean girl moves and doesn’t even have to try very hard. He is probably a little insecure and figured that a girl that looks at her would not give him the time of day. Now she keeps coming around asking for help and advice and he is doesn’t even realize that he is being played. It is sad too, if she doesn’t get voted out this week she is probably just going to ignore him like he never existed next week. He’ll be crushed and by then will probably have screwed things up with Jessie (well maybe not, Jessie has been pretty desperate for a showmance and she would gladly overlook Judd straying if it mean to having to settle for Spencer).
July 22, 2013 at 1:07 am #271583
Not that we need proof McCrae is a nerd but here you go:
July 22, 2013 at 3:14 am #271584
I dunno… I get the feeling Judd sees right through Aryan Aaryn and is just humoring her. Sure, he’s probably attracted to her, but he’s equally repulsed by the idea of being attracted to her.
On the other hand, Jessie really isn’t all that attractive. While Kaitlin… well, she should spend the next few weeks redeeming herself. Those eyebrows!
I like Helen too. Even though part of me is hoping she’ll be exposed — if only to see how she’ll get herself out of it. I think she’s a Dan-type player.
And it looks like we’ve sucked TheMiki into the live feed comments? It’s about time she showed up!
July 22, 2013 at 5:54 am #271587
Yes, Helen is a bit like Dan, but minus the sleazy emotional manipulation (at least for now). Towards the end of last season there were so many people pissed off at him that his plan backfired and Ian got the win. Helen seems to be following a less aggressive strategy and if she pulls it off to the end, she will probably get everyone’s vote. I can’t wait for her to be exposed and how she deals with it, but I’m willing to wait a while. I think it can get tedious if it become all about her too soon.
July 22, 2013 at 6:06 am #271588
Mon 3:42 AM BBT
Aaryn: “Judd, I wish you weren’t in a showmance so I could snuggle w/ you.” Judd: “I’m not in a showmance.”
Kait: “Yeah but Jess would freak the f*** out.” Aaryn: “And I don’t want that.”
Judd: “That sucks.”
July 22, 2013 at 6:18 am #271590
@Itchy, yeah yeah, I’ve been officially sucked in. Last year I avoided reading live feeds for the most part because I like to cap as I watch the episode for the first time, so knowing what’s going to happen kinda cramps my style. This season there was just too much going on that was getting talked about non-stop but not getting aired, so I decided I should really keep on top of it. But I don’t actually have the live feeds or anything, so I’ll just be here throwing in my two-cents and not actually contributing to the arduous task of watching these idiots live 24/7.
Also, we continue to display the same taste in women. Kaitlyn is so damn hot! It’s a shame her personality is so ugly.
July 22, 2013 at 6:59 am #271591
If you’ve seen that rap video Kaitlin was in, she’s clearly not racist. Or a homophobe. She’s just a party girl — nothing wrong with that at her age. I think she just fell in with the wrong people at the start. Certainly she realizes what a twit Aaryn and GM are. It’s a bit harder to accept her snuggling up with that asshat. But she’s not exactly weeping now that he’s gone.
I don’t have the live feeds either — I’m not in the States after all. I depend on the good graces of people here. This year I’m a little more obsessed than usual, though. I’m actually reading Joker’s too (I’ve always like Hamsterwatch).
July 22, 2013 at 7:22 am #271592
Kaitlin’s rap video is Week 4, Page 5
July 22, 2013 at 7:37 am #271597
I didn’t think Kaitlyn was a racist or a homophobe at all. Just a mean girl. That sort of catty bullying behavior is a such a huge turn-off. Hopefully with most of the other asshats out of the house we’ll see a less bitchy side. She’s insanely gorgeous, and pretty badass at comps, so I wouldn’t mind seeing her stick around for a while…
July 22, 2013 at 7:43 am #271599
Well, those eyebrows earn her the benefit of the doubt from me ;-P
July 22, 2013 at 8:55 am #271604
My most recent ex had killer eyebrows. She was psychotic. I tend to attract/be attracted to girls who should probably be heavily medicated and removed from decent society.
July 22, 2013 at 9:21 am #271606
I get the feeling half this cast is heavily medicated, Kaitlin included. But as long as I don’t have to live with them, there are some I prefer to look at more than others.
At least Aarynn is aware of her lip issue — she spoke about getting plastic surgery (in front of Elissa and her fish lips no less!) the other night.
July 22, 2013 at 10:00 am #271611
Just because you appear in a rap video doesn’t mean that you are not racist. There are plenty of different types of people who will make an exception to their beliefs for prospect money or celebrity. Having said that, Kaitlin does seem to be a party girl with a mean streak that is more a follower than a leader. She gravitated to the group that she thought seem like the most popular/powerful, latched herself onto the alpha male and assumed the role of submissive female, doing what he and the rest of the group did to get herself further in the game. The more I her Germy talk about her in interviews and the more she seems totally indifferent to him being gone, the more I’m convinced that she played him. Had the cast been different or the first few days played out differently she probably would have latched onto someone else.
July 22, 2013 at 11:26 am #271644
Sure, she essentially did what Candice is doing with Howard, making herself submissive to someone to whom she was clearly superior. Which is a shame. But then, these kids are young.
It’s ironic that Aaryn, who claims to yearn to be submissive to a male, is anything but.
July 22, 2013 at 11:34 am #271645
Veto ceremony happened – Elissa, not surprisingly, took herself off the block. GM was put up as the replacement nominee. So now they get to choose between Aaryn, Kaitlin and GM. GM is being all loud and obnoxious and talking about how ‘she ain’t scared,’ etcetcetc
July 22, 2013 at 11:36 am #271646
The VETO ceremony was just finished being held and Gina-Marie is the MVP replacement nominee now on block since Elissa took herself off the block. GM says all the beautiful girls are all sitting together on the block.
July 22, 2013 at 11:38 am #271648
I am glad that it isn’t Howard, Helen, Candice or McCrae on the block but I would have loved to have seen Amanda’s head explode if she were on it. Oh well, there is always next week…
July 22, 2013 at 11:39 am #271649
So, the way it stands right now – Candice wants Aaryn to go home, I believe Elissa is of the same opinion. Jessie wanted Kaitlin gone, I know she was gunning for her pretty hard at the onset because of the whole bed thing. Judd wants GM gone, but he did make a deal with her. Amanda and McCrae both seemed to think Kaitlin would be best to send home because Aaryn has pretty much nobody in the house so she’ll do what people tell her to do – she can’t make an alliance to save her life. Either way, it looks like one of the “mean girls” are going home.
Also, Elissa looked at a camera and said “Please don’t let them do that again, that was ridiculous,” making me think either they told them that America was the MVP, or someone in production told Elissa that America was the MVP – or that Elissa finally believes what Andy’s been saying all along that America is the MVP.
At the moment, I have no idea who the hell is going home but at this point I don’t really care one way or another, I don’t like any of the people on the block anyway!
July 22, 2013 at 11:48 am #271650
I’d really appreciate GM or Aaryn leaving. I just want to see how Big Brother handles their departure.
Kaitlin is a mean girl. I don’t know that she’s racists but she does seem to think racial jokes are funny so that makes her disgusting.
July 22, 2013 at 11:53 am #271652
And…GinaMarie’s meltdown starts in 5……4…….3……..2……
July 22, 2013 at 12:03 pm #271653
GM is actually being fine at the moment, says she’s not worried, if she gets voted out she gets to see Nick. …ahahaha
Also, just saw this. Guess who was a Bridezilla?
Maybe Amanda SHOULDN’T let her plan the BB wedding…
July 22, 2013 at 12:12 pm #271654
I love me some Silver Fox but if that clip was any I indication of what his show was like, no wonder it was cancelled.
July 22, 2013 at 12:21 pm #271657
Well, this might be a good outcome after all. We wouldn’t want the season to peak too soon and then have to stick it out for weeks with a bunch of boring people.
Hard to tell which was is going to go. Sure Aryan is the obvious choice, but I seems that people are beginning to realize that Kaitlin can be dangerous and she might go first. Then again, if GM continues with all her meltdowns and weirdness, they might not be able to take it.
July 22, 2013 at 12:31 pm #271658
I’m still thinking it’s going to come down to Aaryn and Kaitlin – people are worried about Kaitlin because she’s come REALLY CLOSE to winning the HoH comps quite a few times now, and it’s only a matter of time before she wins one. She’s a way stronger player than Aaryn or GM (unless there is froyo involved in which case GM is a goddamned beast). Helen is even talking about getting Kaitlin out – funny part, she’s talking about it separately from Mc/Amanda. If they all just sat down and talked together I suspect they’d realize their goals are still the same – for this week, anyway.
Honestly once they get the “mean girls” out, they’re going to start devouring each other, and THAT is going to be really entertaining. Right now, weirdly enough, the person standing out the most in my mind is Andy of all people – he’s making friends. All over the place. He’s listening to everyone. He’s not hiding the fact that people are approaching him for alliances – he’ll mention it to anyone, then laugh in a “isn’t that silly” kind of way. I cannot peg who he’s actually seriously aligned with right now – and I don’t think he really IS aligned with anyone right now, he’s just covering his bases on both sides.
But he’s doing a pretty ingenious job of doing it. Nobody hates Andy. Nobody’s looking at Andy as a target. He’s not stirring up trouble, he’s not making waves. He’s being a very friendly, caring non-entity, and if he starts winning some comps, he could go really far.
July 22, 2013 at 12:53 pm #271660
I think that the differences between Andy and Spencer are very interesting. From the start they were both talking to everyone and trying to be friends with everyone. It has worked far better for Andy though which is pretty amazing since he is doing it all more or less in the open. I guess when everyone is super paranoid and vigilant of people being sneaky, they all miss the guy out in plain sight.
By the way, does the fact that GM was nominated mean that she was next in line in America’s vote? I guess that makes sense but I’m a little surprised that it wasn’t Amanda.
July 22, 2013 at 12:57 pm #271661
Yes, it definitely means she was next in line. So I’m guessing the votes were Aaryn/Kaitlin/Elissa/GM or something along those lines. I’m pretty sure the outcry for getting Aaryn and Kaitlin would be pretty big given their involvement in Bedgate, along with GM – but there are just as many Elissa haters out there, probably more than Elissa fans.
Amanda was not on anyone’s radar last week – her commentary on the show was pretty glib and funny, plus they showed the McManda showmance and interviewed parents of both parties. Most of these voters aren’t seeing what we see on the feeds – they’re just seeing what’s on the show. Amanda hasn’t really gotten a terrible edit, although last episode they were talking about her being controlling. But that was after the MVP vote had already been taken and counted.
July 22, 2013 at 1:07 pm #271664
Actually…thinking on it, I wouldn’t be surprised if the order was Elissa/Aaryn/Kaitlin/GM. Mostly because I think part of the Brenchel army was REALLY DUMB and just blind voted for Elissa because they thought it was yet another MVP vote without actually READING what the page said. The people who don’t like Elissa are voting for other people, and their votes are split between the remaining houseguests. However, if given the opportunity to get Elissa out, suddenly all those split votes are concentrated on one target. Aaryn/Kaitlin/GM are all no-brainers given their portrayal on the broadcast shows in the past week. Everyone else probably came in somewhere underneath that.
July 22, 2013 at 1:10 pm #271665
Elissa got married last year but has an 8 year old and is 27(which means she was 18 when she had him).she hasn’t mentioned to anyone she was married last year and I’ve seen her lie about her age. Her husband is 40-something .yet she keeps talking about her morals and her ministry. Self-righteous hypocrite.
July 22, 2013 at 1:24 pm #271666
YES, WW – you’re right. Those Elissa votes were dumbass Brenchel fans who didn’t understand what they were voting for. The result in the house is that every houseguest is now fully convinced that Elisa self-nominated and then replaced herself with GM. They truly don’t believe America would ever nominate GM, so even those that caught on the the fact that we were MVP have now convinced themselves otherwise. And they’re now worried about what the twist is going to be – they don’t realize it’s over.
To be fair, Elissa is 29. But she apparently thinks her shit doesn’t stink, and frankly, I’m sick to death of her.
Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think Kaitlin would be on America’s radar as someone they wanted to get rid of… without Jeremy, she barely would have any screentime at this point. And how could broadcast-only viewers hate her when feed watchers can’t even muster any hate for her? Maybe in some other season, but there are much more polarizing figures than Kaitlin this season.
The point about Amanda not being seen as controlling in the broadcast is a good one. I was really nervous that she was going to be put up, because I love her, but I know how much other people don’t like her.
So btw there’s a new campaign in the house to get rid of Kaitlin for being a threat… stay tuned.
July 22, 2013 at 1:30 pm #271670
Yeah, you are right WW, it is only recently that Amanda has been portrayed as pushy/bossy. I keep forgetting that most people don’t follow the feeds.
I like your theory about the Boofles Army not noticing who to vote for. There’s definitely more haters than lovers of those two. Actually, it would be even funnier if before the season started Brandon got some of his supposed scientist friends to write a bunch of web bots to automatically vote for Elissa and they totally threw her under the bus when the rules changed.
July 22, 2013 at 1:35 pm #271671

Whoops, you’re right. Apparently, I accidentally got a bit of the Elissa koolaid in my mouth, because she has been telling people in the house that she’s 29, so.
July 22, 2013 at 2:32 pm #271705
So she’s the same age as her kid!?
July 22, 2013 at 2:46 pm #271707
I kind of want to see Amanda’s reaction to this.
July 22, 2013 at 2:53 pm #271708
oops, just re-read, and it says 8 and she’s 27, for a minute I was gonna say . . . that’s some creepy Hulk Hogan shit!
July 22, 2013 at 3:02 pm #271711
HE LIKES THE MEN?
This cast has an especially high number of embarrassing youtube videos, don’t they?
July 22, 2013 at 3:03 pm #271712
I’d be happy to see Elissa eliminated over any of the Klan girls, even Aryan Aaryn. She comes off as a stuckup prig who only came on the show to become a “star” like her sister.
July 22, 2013 at 3:40 pm #271715
Apparently Kaitlin had an abortion at some point prior to the show. She made the mistake of saying this where Elissa could hear it, and now Elissa thinks she’s satan or something.
Yeah so I think we can happily chuck Elissa out now
They ARE using religion to manipulate people, by the way. Spencer and Howard were playing pool the other night and Elissa came out, Spencer started talking to her about faith and religion and how he’s really spiritual but he hasn’t been in the house and he was wondering if she would like to get together and pray at some point and Elissa was all “Sure! That would be awesome” and after she left Spencer looks at Howard, Howard looks at Spencer and says something along the lines of “That was perfect”
July 22, 2013 at 3:50 pm #271716
Well, surely they’ve noticed that huge douchebag cross on Judd’s back? Can’t believe they’re not flirting with him too.
By the by, it seems Jeremy has just fallen off the face of the planet in the past couple of days. I saw a couple of interviews with him (in which he continues to be a dickweed) from just after his eviction, and that’s it.
Silence is the best revenge.
July 22, 2013 at 4:03 pm #271719
Just a small sampling of the douchebaggery since he got Twitter back yesterday…
July 22, 2013 at 4:07 pm #271721
BUT credit where credit is due, Jeremy’s not NEARLY as Twitter annoying as Nick, who retweets every compliment he receives, answers EVERY dumb question and uses lots of exclamation points!!!
July 22, 2013 at 4:10 pm #271722
i agree that religion is definitely being used a strategy but not race.
July 22, 2013 at 4:12 pm #271723
I was really disappointed with the show this Sunday. Instead of showing Gina Marie for the horrible racist that she is, even worse than Aaryn at times IMO, they do a clip of her as this crazy “Jersey Girl” who mangles the English language! Geez, why didn’t they include the ‘nigger insurance” into that clip? Let’s face it, CBS is thrilled that their ratings has shot right up and they are now winning their time-slot every night they air because they’ve decided to embrace the racism in the house BUT since the did, they’ve gone back to showing us the same old shit they always have! …..Even though the bullshit is still going on, especially with Gina Marie and SPENCER! It’s the perfect time for them to get real about some real things and a great opportunity for BB to make some changes. But , they just aren’t going to do it. The TV show is NEVER going to show what really happens on the live feeds. I remember one of the houseguests saying the first or second week in the house, when one of the others was explaining the live feeds to them, I think it was Andy explaining them to Aaryn. He was telling her that the people watching on the internet could see everything that they, the houseguests, were doing in the house 24/7 and she looked at him and said “Then what is the point of having the TV show?”
July 22, 2013 at 4:28 pm #271727
on the central casting thought, the other day on AD, Aaryn was plucking Kaitlin’s eyebrows, and they were chatting. Rather intense looks on A’s face digging in. The way K was talking, made me totally think this was an acting gig for them. Something like, “I can’t believe I’m stuck here in this house with these people” Doesn’t sound like someone in it to win it . . . I wont be surprised if Howard, Candice and Amanda are all plants.
July 22, 2013 at 6:37 pm #271770
Proof is in the swallowing!
July 22, 2013 at 6:47 pm #271778
I have to believe GM’s extraordinary abilities come from her experience as a bulimic. While I’ve never experienced the disorder, I have heard from others that your gag reflex becomes almost voluntary. You learn to vomit on command- or hold it in if you need to.
July 22, 2013 at 6:49 pm #271780
The tide is turning……
Helen is now campaigning to keep Aaryn and boot Kaitlin out the door this week.
July 22, 2013 at 7:33 pm #271786
Since Itchy turned us all on to “Naked and Afraid…” EJ from the Africa episode is on the latest episode of “72 Hours.” Apparently he is an actor, not a wilderness survival guide. Central casting strikes again!
EDIT: He also was a finalist for “Big Brother” and “Survivor,” but didn’t make the cut both times. So there, I brought it back to topic!
July 22, 2013 at 7:49 pm #271791
The Africa episode was my favorite episode! I am so disillusioned now…….
July 22, 2013 at 8:06 pm #271792
In his defense, he was pretty kick-ass on 72 Hours. He obviously knew his stuff. He was starting fires, kicking ass with the machete, etc. etc. He even carried one of his teammates up a 4000 ft mountain when she passed out from lack of water. He knows his survival stuff. He just also happened to be on a bunch of tv shows and movies.
July 22, 2013 at 9:27 pm #271815
It’s still neat to watch 2 nekked and afraid folks that have to tolerate one another and 21 days without Jeff Probst, Mark Burnett, and a food reward every other day. I also love, love, love the things folks pick as their “luxury” item. One of my favs happened recently when the gal brought a machete and the guy brought….goggles. To a place that had only shallow water. I could tell he was kinda embarassed by his choice after I saw him pick up a stick and flail at the brush saying ” I don’t need no Machete”
July 22, 2013 at 9:32 pm #271828
They must tell the people what the other person is bringing, or else I think it would be two machetes every time. I also think they at least tell the people what area of the world they will be in, or at least what climate. Otherwise, why would the guy with the goggles bring those if he could end up in the desert and why would the lady in the Sahara bring a cook pot?
So when central casting people give job descriptions on reality shows, are those just flat-out lies? Or do most of these “actors” have other jobs they work full-time, but they do acting/modeling gigs when they can get them?
While I don’t watch the feeds, I don’t think Amanda is an actress. I do think she’s on the show to build clients for her business. Real estate is a tough industry, so anything you can do to get ahead is welcome. I still question if her interest in PB is genuine.
July 22, 2013 at 10:05 pm #271831
In the fist week when the HGs were still getting to know each other Amanda actually said she was pursuing acting but then gave up because she didn’t want to be a struggling actress her whole life. She said she uses her “acting ” in real estate and its just as rewarding. I think BB is her last ditch effort to be discovered and/or get fame/fortune. Just the other night, some of the girls were saying they could see her in a Chelsea Handler/Howard Stern type job. Raunchy comedian/talk show host type.
July 22, 2013 at 10:16 pm #271833
Judd’s bear shirt: Who Wore it Best?
If Judd’s bear shirt ends up on eBay, we should all buy it together, and share it. Sisterhood of the travelling bear shirt.
July 22, 2013 at 10:46 pm #271840
It’s sad that our interests are in another show and not what’s happening in the BB house today. I have turned on the feeds twice and it’s been a huge bore!
Once it was just Howard & Candice on all 4 feeds and when the 2 of them talk it’s a real snooze-fest. Candice just wants Howard to keep his mouth shut about the stuff she tells him. She doesn’t want him running to Spencer and telling him everything she says. He tells her he’d never do that. They both talk about Helen’s new dislike for Amanda. She likes Pizza Boy but not Amanda where as Elissa seems to be getting along with her now. Jessie came in to talk to them and tells them she wants someone to cuddle with like they do. They tell her that Judd is a southern boy and he probably hasn’t been around women like her, strong-willed, and he just doesn’t know how to act around her. Jessie acts like she’s not really interested in having a cuddle-fest with Judd, but doesn’t come out and say so.
It’s mostly been a back and forth over who the fuck the MVP is! Everyone one has been considered the MVP at one point or another. One thing is for sure, the tide was shifting towards Kaitlin as the evictee and that she is the MVP because America felt bad that she lost Jeremy…. that is until someone realized that America wouldn’t have enough time to vote her MVP after he was evicted. Elissa spent half the day going from “America still loves me” to “America HATES me!”… last I knew, she thinks they hate her. Aaryn, on the other hand, is starting to campaign to stay in the house. When she found out that Gina Marie was told that she was totally safe and NOT going home, then she said it was time to get some votes. She went to Judd. He told her he was personally trying to keep her in the house and they started to count votes in her favor. Jessie, Helen and him, so that’s 3 right there. She tells him: “If I stay here, and say you vote Kaitlin out, you don’t have to tell people. You can say you voted me out. I’m kind of in the bottom of the barrel here. Anyone who’s loyal to me, I will be loyal to them for the rest of the time.”
Later she works on Spencer & Howard, asking them not to tell Candice that she talked to them. She asks them that if the majority of the house will vote to keep her, will they vote that way too? They say that they do what is best for them. Spencer says that they are walking around with a huge Scarlet letter on their chest anyways because of the MC scandal, so everyone thinks they’re shady anyways. Howard tells her they were all pissed off at him for training her in the backyard. “I ain’t no punk! I’ll train you the next day and again. I’m not going to kiss their ass because supposedly they have a power!”
After she left, Howard told Spencer he should be a detective and Spencer said maybe he should be Batman, the Dark Knight and Howard could be Robert Downey Jr’s Ironman. Howard reminds Spencer of one thing: “If it’s the final 2, I take you over Candice any day. I promised you that day 1.”
July 22, 2013 at 10:51 pm #271841
It looks like Candice isn’t going to be too happy with this week’s eviction … Helen has finally convinced Elissa that Kaitlin is a bigger, more dangerous target due to her winning things. Mc/Amanda are already wanting Kaitlin out. Judd wants Kaitlin out. Jessie wants Kaitlin out. That’s six votes right there, and Howard/Spencer seem to be convinced too, along with Andy.
Unless Aaryn does something REALLY HORRIBLE the next couple of days, she’s going to be in the house for another week.
…unless it’s a double eviction in which case they might take the opportunity to swipe her out then, or possibly Howard if the opportunity presents itself.
July 22, 2013 at 11:36 pm #271848
I’m enjoying how Aaryn has obviously been given instructions by the producers to tone down her racist bullshit and how she keeps grumbling about that. Any minute now she’s going to break out into song: “I got to be meeeeee!!!!!”
But with Jeremy the Asshat out, and Spencer acting like a scolded puppy with worms, and GM being exposed as an utter moron, Aryan just seems less… I dunno… threatening?
When it seemed like she was part of a gang/klan, it was disturbing. Now she’s more like a chihahua. Still nasty, but kind of laughable.
July 22, 2013 at 11:40 pm #271849
Also, didn’t Howard admit on the feeds that the producers forced him to play Bible-Thumper Guy? He said he came in wanting the play the Asshole Asshat character, but Jeremy got that role –because he’s a much more natural fit for that. Howard’s just too dumb.
I think Howard’s working on going for the double role. Now that Asshat Jeremy is out, he can be the Bible Dude AND the Asshole.
But yeah, I don’t think he’s (or Candice) are using race as a strategy. But the producers definitely scrambled to protect Howard at the height of the racism thing.
July 22, 2013 at 11:44 pm #271850
And another thing… I think if you scratch the surface of pretty much any reality show cast these days, you’ll find that most of them have either already been on a reality television show, or at least auditioned for enough show to get noticed as a potential candidate. And the rest of them are all struggling actors/performers of some sort trying to get noticed.
It makes sense. Who else can take off that much time from their jobs? Maybe at the beginning of the reality show phenomenon they used real people. But at this point, they’re all professionals at this. Which is probably why casting has skewed so young.
And I think a lot of the professions they give to people are things they used to be, before they started reality-acting full time.
July 23, 2013 at 2:09 am #271852
July 23, 2013 at 2:55 am #271853
Itchy, if that’s the case, it’s kind of impressive that these people manage to maintain these “characters” as long as they do. I just planned a surprise birthday party for my hubby and could barely keep my mouth shut for a month, let alone three! Secrets are hard.
Bad news, peeps! According to Hamster Watch, there will be no Sisterhood of the Traveling Bear Shirt because the shirt has gone missing! How can a shirt go missing in a closed-off house of only five rooms?!
July 23, 2013 at 3:51 am #271854
I’m not saying they’re pretending to be someone else, like real actors (although I imagine that might happen sometimes), just that they’re playing the role of “themselves” for the camera.
And it seems like a lot of these people try out for multiple reality shows. I’m guessing there are a limited number of casting agents specialized in stocking these types of programs, so certain characters tend to get recognized — and ultimately cast on one show or another.
So it’s not as if most or any of these people are random people who spontaneously decided to try out for Big Brothers. Even the so-called “superfans” are known entities. McCrae is apparently linked to Hamsterwatch, for example). Candice was already on a show about her adoptive mom. And Elissa was on Anderson cooper. Nick was with that fish-lipped designer daughter woman.
I’m sure someone can dig up the bit where Howard’s speaking about being “assigned” the bible-thumper role.
None of this takes away the fun of these shows (for me). But I think it’s good to be aware of the “realities” behind reality tv.
July 23, 2013 at 6:00 am #271855
Nasty Chihuahua is a good description, Itchy.
Aryan has become irrelevant not only because the producers are on her to tone her down, but because she’s lost her little group of lackeys. Those hanger-ons are really the ones that give mean girls like her their power. Once Germy and David went away and the other mean girls started to realize that they should not be associated with her, she lost all of her influence. For a little while there, she didn’t go down without a fight and kept blaming everyone else, but by now she just wants out…which is why won’t be disappointed if she sticks around while longer.
July 23, 2013 at 7:19 am #271857
Itchy-I definitely want to see the clip where Howard says he had to take the religious role.
I found out where you can buy the bear shirt! they have other animals too. I think I might actually buy the “Forest Scene” print
July 23, 2013 at 7:56 am #271858
Is there a way to search the forums? I think it was during the second week? Or maybe I read it on Joker’s?
July 23, 2013 at 8:06 am #271859
I don’t remember Howard saying that about himself. All I remember was PB talking to someone (maybe Spencer or Amanda?) about how they felt Howard didn’t really give a damn about religion and was probably playing a role.
July 23, 2013 at 8:18 am #271861
Well, I’ve been looking around, but can’t find any mention of it. Maybe I just made it up?
I still think the guy’s a poser.
July 23, 2013 at 8:30 am #271862
July 23, 2013 at 8:58 am #271864
He’s 5’10?!?!?? Ugh…that’s a negative ghost rider. He’s all yours Dashley.
July 23, 2013 at 9:32 am #271867
July 23, 2013 at 10:35 am #271875
Yuck! He’s a shorty mcshorty pants…
July 23, 2013 at 10:47 am #271877
I thought 5’10” was pretty average, and it’s not like he’s not taking up enough space!
July 23, 2013 at 11:03 am #271878
Here is what you read Itchy, but I never heard Howard say it on the feeds. If he did, it would have been that first week in the house.
David: Oh, not at all I was just playing that card, the dumb card cuz I didn’t want them to know how I really am. I’m a pretty smart cat & I knew how to act the dingbat cuz I have long blonde hair & I’m a surfer so why not play the dumb card?
BB Evers: Yes but, you played it almost too well!
[This semi-confirms my suspicion that the BB houseguests no longer go in as themselves but are given a scripted “performance” to make them act a certain way. Howard has talked on the feeds about planning to be Jeremy’s outspoken loud persona but “they” said he should play the bible dude.]
July 23, 2013 at 11:19 am #271879
July 23, 2013 at 11:27 am #271881
I think I remember that now Chooch and Itchy.
July 23, 2013 at 11:56 am #271894
Why do we even need a “bible dude”? It could of been fun having two alpha a-holes fighting it out?
July 23, 2013 at 12:07 pm #271899
Helen was already working the “Save Aaryn” campaign first thing this morning. She told Jessie that maybe they should tell Aaryn that if they save her, she needs to step up and be a have-not for the next week. Jessie told her that with her luck, she’d probably win the HOH then. Helen then went to Judd to convince him not to tell his buddies, Spencer & Howard, that they have made a deal with Aaryn… that she’ll put those two up if she wins HOH, in return for her safety. I guess that means him & her plus Jessie, Andy, Amanda & Pizza Boy. (or if they change their minds- Haha- whoever they want on the block). Judd just has to make them see that it’s a better idea to get rid of Kaitlin because she’s a stronger competitor and smarter. Judd is not wanting to do this because he’s in an alliance with these guys.
When Judd & Andy talk later, Andy says he’ll just tell Howard & Spencer that Amanda wants Aaryn out sooo bad she can’t stand it and that will do it. Those two guys can’t stand Amanda and will do the opposite of what she wants, so they will vote out Kaitlin to spite her. LOL! Such strategy! They both talk about getting rid of Howard next week if they can and their growing mistrust of Helen. They both prefer Elissa over Helen, but she wants an all-girl ending. They think they can make it to the end with Amanda and Pizza Boy, but decide that today they will work on Spencer & Howard voting out Kaitlin.
July 23, 2013 at 12:15 pm #271905
I watch the feeds, mostly in the morning and that’s when Howard does his praying. I have to say that I don’t think he’s faking that at all. He REALLY gets into it and it goes on for about an hour. He does the out loud praying and he knows all the verses and someone who is just pretending to be the “Bible dude” doesn’t know that shit like he does. He also opens the Bible and reads for awhile too. I don’t think his faith is fake. But I do think he believes he’s playing with “clean” hands now and he’s not at all. he’s arrogant when it comes to his BB game-play. Actually he’s kinda stupid! I swear he doesn’t realize that these people talk to each other. Spencer does the most talking and he’s his buddy!
July 23, 2013 at 12:36 pm #271948
It wouldn’t make sense for producers to randomly assign roles to the HG. Rather, they probably talk them into emphasize one of the qualities/personality traits that they already have. David is a dumbass so he was asked to play a dumbass (and further confirmed this by thinking that the reason why he was being asked to play that part was because he was really smart in real life). The same with Germy (the smelled douchebag all over him and told him “hey, we think that you could make some great TV if you played the alpha male”).
Howard is a former football player and clearly has an ego and a high opinion of himself so arrogant alpha male would have been a good choice for him. But he probably also talked about being a Christian and TPTB then probably said something along the lines of “it would be for America to see a good and decent Christian man on the screen” and got him to play that role. I think this also explains why he keeps talking about his conscience and doing the right thing all the time. He may genuinely believe that, even though it is at times at odds with the things that he says and does, but more importantly he is also doing it to give TPTB good soundbytes for his edit.
July 23, 2013 at 12:44 pm #271954
JimmyT always says exactly what I’m thinking, so uh, ditto. (Hey guys, I’m starting to wonder if I have a multiple personality that signed up for an account under the name JimmyT, and maybe I should see a shrink instead of asking you.)
Classy – 5’10 too short for you? I don’t mind so much – He’d still be taller than me wearing 4-inch heels, so that’s cool. If ever I was a little put off by his height, I’d just ask him to take off his shirt, and that would take care of that.
And yeah – I’m pretty sure at this point that Kaitlin’s going home tomorrow. If the vote happened RIGHT THIS SECOND, that would be the result – but of course, things can change pretty quickly, so we’ll see! (Candice is gonna be soooooo pissed. Maybe it’ll fuel her to get HoH – I would love to see a Candice HoH.)
July 23, 2013 at 12:47 pm #271955
Gina Marie prove once again that having an eating disorder makes for some great moments ion the BB house. Last night she successfully completed the tablespoon of cinnamon challenge, not once, but twice.
First time was a charm….
All gone and not a cough!
Okay, everybody watching! let’s do it again!
The crowd is cheering…..
Hmmm… not quite so easy the second time, but it stayed down!
July 23, 2013 at 1:00 pm #271956
I’m with Dashley on Howard. I like just right in men, and I’d rather have shorter than too tall, but that’s me, and I’m just a pinch taller than Howard anyway!
July 23, 2013 at 1:03 pm #271957
Well Dashley, that would explain all the mysterious blackouts and lost time that have been worrying my family.
July 23, 2013 at 1:15 pm #271964
JIMMYT WINS THE INTERNET TODAY!
July 23, 2013 at 1:16 pm #271965
As or the backyard shenanigans last night… the Three Stoogies tried it first, before Gina Marie stepped up to the plate, but they only tried it with a teaspoon full of cinnamon, being the wimps they are.
Thar’ she blows!
It’s a chain reaction!
July 23, 2013 at 1:19 pm #271966
I just gotta say… an hour praying every morning? This guy has something seriously heavy on his conscience. Maybe a few date rapes when he was an college football hero?
I mean, you people know how I feel about the whole prayer thing. But this is just obsessive. At least Jessie and Elissa keep their biblitis on the down-low.
I’ll be pissed if they vote out Kaitlin. I’m not done looking at her yet.
July 23, 2013 at 1:19 pm #271968
LOL… JimmyT & Dashley…. I swear you two are a reality show in the making!
July 23, 2013 at 1:22 pm #271969
Also, I’m pretty sure I read about the Howard playing a role before that interview, but it might be there. At any rate, if he is acting, he’s doing some Deniro-level method acting.
Hey! There was Jessie! She’s still in the house!
I really hope Judd gets with Aaryn. That’ll be hysterical. Especially when he starts bossing her around.
July 23, 2013 at 1:25 pm #271971
Chooch, don’t taint Jimmy’s and my beautiful connection with talk of something so low as a reality show.
Now, a gameshow on the other hand… we would totally rock that. I’m all for making money off this enterprise.
If we needed a third for our team, I think Whatwhat would be a good candidate, because we had that weird thing where we sceenshot our computers on the EXACT same frame during McCrae’s birthday.
July 23, 2013 at 1:26 pm #271972
I felt bad for Howard and Candace because of the racial stuff. He’ll I still do. But now that that’s passed from a game standpoint I’m done with Howard. All talk no strategy. I respect the way he handled Bedgate (although I would of reacted differently) but he’s just deadweight. And Candace, stop fighting Howard’s battle. no one likes you now and that sucks because I like you.
July 23, 2013 at 1:58 pm #271987
Here’s few pictures of Kaitlin for you Itchy. They’re from the exercise class in the backyard last night…
July 23, 2013 at 2:09 pm #271992
Well, thanks Chooch. But you know, I’m not Spencer.
At least she’ll have something to be proud of when she’s old and wrinkly.
July 23, 2013 at 2:13 pm #271994
Well I have given up my lunch rights to Howard so you can have him then Juddfan as Dashley has already claimed breakfast. Even with his shirt off he’d be too petite for me.
July 23, 2013 at 2:24 pm #271995
Right now in the BB house… Amanda’s boobs are all sparkly while she talks to Spencer, Andy, Howard & Candice (who’s wearing that stupid ripped pink onsie) about Broadway shows. Jessie comes out in her bikini and joins them. Jessie asks Amanda if she likes “Glee” and Amanda tells her that her BFF is on the show. She’s the new girl that’s the bitchy one that’s the new trouble maker. They went to college together and were room-mates. Jessie is sooo amazed cuz she’s such a GLEEK! She can’t believe haw much Amanda has done already in her life. Amanda starts telling her all the things she’s done and throwing names out there. BB keeps giving us *FISH* when she names names. Howard’s asking how to get into some things cuz he’s been trying to get into that stuff. he is signed in with the modeling and he was started in the stage stuff but he wants to get into the television stuff and she asks what he’s been studying so he’s telling her what he was doing and the acting classes he went to. he talks about the casting people and mentions Robbie Green and we get *FISH* . He tells her living in Miss. is not the place to be. she says it’s the only place is LA or NYC. She says she was into acting for quite awhile and the reality part of it and she got into the production end of it, but there is no union in reality TV and they don’t pay you shit. She finally had to just get out of it all together and get into real estate and that’s what she’s been doing ever since.
Inside it’s Helen, Aaryn & Kaitlin sitting at the counter eating & listening to Elissa go on and on about Survivor and if they had been on it, they’d be gone already.
July 23, 2013 at 2:27 pm #271996
Sorry, I didn’t realize I double posted Amanda! and I couldn’t edit the post…..
July 23, 2013 at 2:29 pm #271998
Game show sounds like fun, although I’m not sure which one.
I do know of a game show that would be perfect for Itchy, though:
July 23, 2013 at 2:36 pm #271999
Judd got the HOH camera so I’m taking a break….
July 23, 2013 at 2:52 pm #272005
Nope Itchy. I know you don’t like whole religion thing but several churches have prayer hour in the mornings. So praying for an hour isn’t uncommon. My parents pray from 6-7 am (I think at home…I don’t know if they go to the actual church anymore)
July 23, 2013 at 3:58 pm #272009
Well, I know Muslims are supposed to do it five times a day. And of course, Orthodox Jews can spend the entire morning in temple (and the really Orthodox spend all their time studying the Torah/Talmud). But still — these people don’t tend to go on reality TV! Thankfully!
Although I suppose there are people out there who tune in just for the excitement of watching Howard read his bible. I can’t wait until he gets to the parts about not seeking material gain…
And Jimmy, yes, I remember that show. They had to cancel it because the religious people kept losing their faith…
July 23, 2013 at 4:00 pm #272010
Oh, and my condolences Classy, for the loss of your Howard crush. Although you ought to have been able to figure out his height just by seeing him stand next to the others…I guess you were too dazzled by other parts of him.
July 23, 2013 at 4:47 pm #272038
Wow. Does Elissa know how to beat a dead horse or what?! What part of “we werent making fun of you!” doesnt she get? shes about to go tattle to production after lockdown is over.
July 23, 2013 at 4:52 pm #272040
Ha, according to Joker’s, Elissa’s freaking out about this very thing right now… Oh, how I wish I was in the hosue with her right now! That’d be a hoot! She’s threatening to self-evict! I wish she would!
July 23, 2013 at 4:53 pm #272041
Yo… Elissa needs to recalibrate her dosage. She was talking with Andy and McCrae and complaining about how Howard uses his religion in the game, and how she doesn’t respect that (of course, comparing him to herself.) Andy and McCrae tell her to quiet down, because she’s talking really loud and people Howard are aligned with are within earshot. Elissa FLIPS, and storms around the house pissed at them for making fun of her religion, which they absolutely did NOT do. They calmly try to explain this to her, even apologizing that it came off that way, and she’s not having it. She’s been pissed at them for the better part of an hour for disrespecting her and her religion.
She’s using phrases like, “Don’t flatter yourself, I don’t care what you think.” “I shouldn’t be subjected to defamatory remarks.” etc, etc… she even bitched about it to Amanda, Judd, pretty much everyone.
July 23, 2013 at 4:56 pm #272042
shes like a stepford-wife going haywire
July 23, 2013 at 4:58 pm #272044
Oh, I almost forgot – she’s talking self-eviction, too. To Amanda. Who is feeding the fire, agreeing about how awful all these people are (except for McCrae of course, who clearly wasn’t trying to offend her), and then turning around and telling everyone else how CRAZY Elissa is.
July 23, 2013 at 5:05 pm #272045
Also, Helen confirmed to Aryan that the votes have been counted, and Aryan is definitely staying. But not to say anything to anyone, because they’re planning on blindsiding Kaitlin.
Let’s see how long it stays a secret…
July 23, 2013 at 5:32 pm #272047
The HGs were on lockdown in the HoH room for a while, and when they got out, they saw that Roscoe the Pool Duck had babies!
July 23, 2013 at 5:42 pm #272048
GM’s got some anger management issues, too. There was an announcement from BB that said “Candice, Houseguests: This is a reminder. Sleeping is only permitted in the bedrooms.” GM says “She better get a fucking penalty nom because she’s a fucking havenot and she’s always trying to fucking sleep somewhere else.” My editorial: Maybe you should keep your mouth shut about it until YOU have been a HN… Christ. She said it with SO much anger, too. It’s not your life, get over it.
July 23, 2013 at 5:45 pm #272049
LOL and Amanda asks GM what she has been hearing around the house about votes tomorrow and GM is saying she feels pretty good because, “He didn’t ‘pacificly’ say anything…” Seriously, in 30 seconds she uses “pacificly” instead of “specifically” at LEAST four times. Fucking idiot. I wish they would vote HER out.
July 23, 2013 at 6:41 pm #272056
@itchy if you mean muscles and peen shots then yes I was
And you can seek material gains as long as you keep God first. Muchos people were used by God that were rich.
I’m really disappointed. I really want to see how they handle GM or Aaryn’s departure.
They seem to keep the blindsides pretty quiet in the house from what I can tell. Game play wise it’s best to at least get Kaitlin out since she’s good at comps and would def beat all the girls in an endurance comp.
July 23, 2013 at 6:44 pm #272057
GM probably says “supposubly,” too.
July 23, 2013 at 7:22 pm #272060
Right now, Judd is hanging out by himself, finding empty rooms and searching furiously for something. It could be his bear shirt, but I suspect that he’s the only one with a brain in the house that realizes during HoH lockdown earlier, TPTB HAD to have done something other than add rubber ducks to the pool. He hasn’t found what he’s looking for yet, and I’m not sure whether or not he has more to go on, but I’ll let you know if I figure it out.
July 23, 2013 at 7:32 pm #272062
He looked a little bit in the lounge and the living room too, but he keeps returning to Howard’s stuff specifically – so he’s probably hoping to find proof Howard is MVP?
July 23, 2013 at 7:44 pm #272063
OOOOoooo this house is in a MOOD!
Sure enough (saw this one coming from a mile away), Elissa decided to tell Kaitlin that she’s going home because everyone thinks she has a final 4 deal with Spencer, Howard, and…. who the hell knows. Aryan overheard the conversation and runs up to HoH where McManda are hanging out to ask them who the HELL told Kaitlin that everyone thinks she has a deal with those guys. McManda claim innocence.
Meanwhile, Kaitlin’s freaking out now, panicking to Andy, who is trying to appease her, and claiming that Elissa is just trying to stir things up by telling lies.
Everyone’s just nasty in there today. Even Judd called Candice a “gold-digging slut” to McCrae earlier.
July 23, 2013 at 7:56 pm #272066
We interrupt our regular programming to present you with a very important Public Service Announcement…
Don’t let Pageant Hair happen to you, or someone you love. If you suspect that someone you love may be afflicted with Pageant Hair, please find the nearest clippers and shave them bald as quickly as you can.
July 23, 2013 at 8:58 pm #272082
WOW, the house is blowing up! Everyone is arguing with everyone about Elissa telling Kaitlin the plan was to send her home: Did Kaitlin really have a final 4 deal with Howard and Spencer and Mystery 4th HG? Did Aryan make that up? What is the real plan – to send home Aryan, or Kaitlin? Is Elissa CRAZY? (Yes.)
LOL Andy called her a malfunctioning robot. It’s apt.
July 23, 2013 at 9:02 pm #272086
Have to say I’m really enjoying your posts. Getting funny loons from my family as I laugh at my phone.
July 23, 2013 at 9:21 pm #272092
Well, Elissa is a total idiot. After this week, pretty much everyone is going to be gunning for her, regardless of who goes home this week. I guess Aryan is going to be around a while longer.
July 23, 2013 at 9:26 pm #272093
Elissa should have lied and said she was MVP and nominated herself. She had the power and now she’s losing it. Now that she really has to play she is either showing her true colors or she’s just breaking under pressure.
July 23, 2013 at 9:31 pm #272094
Well, Elisa has certainly stirred the shit, today. This is why I love Big Brother!
July 23, 2013 at 9:43 pm #272095
Hey, thanks Wally!
Yes, Elissa stirred the shit. But what’s weird about that phrase is that it makes it sound purposeful… as though she had some sort of strategy. In truth, she’s just straight-up crazy and has no idea what she’s doing.
July 23, 2013 at 9:56 pm #272143
I kinda like that Elissa is screwing uup everybody’s game play. I think she is just as self absorbed as Aaryn just without the mean girl tendency.
July 23, 2013 at 11:00 pm #272185
So here is the house meeting – Elissa has CLEARLY gone off her damn rocker.
July 24, 2013 at 12:15 am #272187
Well, we watched the Jesus Christ Superstar movie last night, to try to get into the swing of things. The most important thing we noticed is how SLENDER people were back then. But I love the song at the end of the movies. Al-ways look on the bright, si-ide of life, de-dum, de-dum did-diddy dum.
At least Howard’s not using his religion to browbeat people — to him, it seems more like a security blanket. Elissa, on the other hand, clearly uses her “religion” to thump OTHER people on the head with. You’d think between her “faith” and her yoga practice she’d be on a more even keel, right?
Here’s hoping the plan to evict Kaitlin dies then. My guess is that production had Elissa step in to expose the plan, make it blow up, because they really want the ratings bump of seeing Aryan Aaryn evicted — they know that the longer she’s in the house, the less impact her eviction is going to have.
July 24, 2013 at 12:40 am #272192
So Candice slept through everything. Elissa losing her mind, the subsequent arguments, the house meeting, all of it. When she wakes up, a couple of people start to fill her in, and she becomes convinced that Amanda was the engine behind ALL of it, which honestly, couldn’t be further from the truth. But NOW there’s a whole new argument between Candice and Amanda, because Amanda is really pissed that Candice would try to pin it all on her, and though Candice is denying it to Amanda’s face, she hasn’t really backed down from her certainty that Amanda is the one that started everything.
So THEN Amanda is having a conversation in the lounge about the Candice drama with Spencer, Howard, and Andy, and Kaitlin eavesdrops:
Once Amanda leaves the lounge, Kaitlin goes in to have a similar conversation with the same guys, and AMANDA eavesdrops:
Honestly guys… there is WAY too much going on, I can’t even keep track. But think of a combination of any 2 or 3 people in the BB15 house, and I promise you they had an argument tonight. And all parties lied about something in the argument.
July 24, 2013 at 12:43 am #272193
July 24, 2013 at 12:54 am #272196
Okay guys… time for me to get to bed – big day tomorrow! Going to a trampoline park! Send me good thoughts that I don’t break any limbs! (VERY accident-prone over here…)
July 24, 2013 at 12:55 am #272197
Elissa was the one that told Candice that Amanda was behind all of it. I don’t even
July 24, 2013 at 1:02 am #272198
I think a huge problem with this season is that every single one of these people seem to be on one medication or another.
July 24, 2013 at 1:43 am #272200
Ahahahaha – SO. Apparently Elissa went to Howard and Candice and said that Amanda and McCrae were bashing Howard’s religion. Please note: Elissa was the one that was bashing Howard nonstop earlier today. That was when Andy and McCrae were laughing, because she was doing it too loud right in earshot of GM, and they were trying to get her to shut up. She got offended because she thought they were making fun of her religion, they spent…lord, hours trying to explain to her that they were just laughing because she was speaking so loud.
So Elissa is basically a total twat that is trying to deflect anything bad she’s said, in a proactive fashion. I have a feeling if word of what Elissa said gets back to McCrae, Andy or Amanda (Amanda was there, she wasn’t laughing with Andy and McCrae but she tried to explain what was up to Elissa, who didn’t want to hear it), there are going to be some major, MAJOR explosions.
July 24, 2013 at 5:40 am #272216
Itchy, did you mean “Life of Brian” instead of “Jesus Christ Superstar?” The song you quoted was from LoB (which is an infinitely better movie).
I always thought BB was doing itself a disservice by keeping the booze to a minimum, as booze + dumb people = entertainment. But if everyone is on so much medication, I suppose BB doesn’t need to provide as much alcohol. Most of these people shouldn’t be mixing with their medicines anyway.
It was just great to see the free-flowing booze turn the BB Canada house into a high school make-out party half the time. Those people seemed to have A LOT of fun and I nearly peed myself when Talla fell into the hot tub and peed herself.
July 24, 2013 at 5:57 am #272217
I don’t watch movies about Jesus. They always end the same. Spoiler alert. He dies.
What is wrong with Elissa? Are her meds not level? Did they make everyone in the house take something so they didn’t get ring worm?!?!
I too think the house would be better if they had more access to booze, but i guess they don’t want the show to be about 15 booze bags in the house. i think it would be fun to see people compete while complaining about their hangovers.
July 24, 2013 at 6:21 am #272218
No, I meant JCS, with a wink at LOB. JCS is one of my favorite musicals, I listen to the original album all the time. Go figure. The movie wasn’t that great, I agree.
And there’s no question, BB Canada was great — such a huge contrast to this season. They actually had fun most of the time. These people? They all seem miserable and intent on making each other miserable.
I tried to watch that video… I honestly don’t know how you feeds watchers can stand it. Listening to those people go on and on and on… Well, sure, I’m glad you’re doing it so I can just read about it.
July 24, 2013 at 6:23 am #272219
And damn, Classy. You’re an early bird, aren’t you? Forget finding a tall guy. You need someone who doesn’t like to sleep.
July 24, 2013 at 7:01 am #272222
LOL, when I saw that GIF of Eric Idle I was sure I didn’t remember him being in JCS. Thanks for the clarification.
July 24, 2013 at 7:13 am #272229
My favorite JCS line: “Prove to me you are no fool…walk across my swimming pool!”
All of these meltdowns and dramas are pretty fun (although probably not to listen through–thank you all for putting up with that for the rest of us!). I think that one of the interesting things about all of this is that there are now multiple potential targets being set up for the next few weeks. In addition to Aryan and Kaitlin who are on the block people now have big problems with Elissa, Amanda, Howard, Candice and by association with them Spencer and maybe PB. Meanwhile, Helen and Andy are staying at the margins of all of this and Jessie and Judd are pretty much invisible.
If this isn’t a bonanza for Helen who is probably going to try to strategically take advantage of the chaos, then it will be a floater’s dream season and one of the other ones is going to make it to the end. Usually I’m not a fan of floaters, but I have to say that this is the first season in a while that doesn’t feel like it has quickly fallen into the usual ruts.
July 24, 2013 at 9:22 am #272238
Hamsterwatch’s take on Howard is interesting:
“I still can’t listen to his know-it-all monotone for long, but I did catch a bit of Monday night’s sermon for Candice when he was talking about how he believes a wife should be subservient to her husband. That’s all well and good if that’s how a couple chooses to live, consenting adults etc, but Candice wasn’t so sure. I have to wonder if something like that came up before the feeds: it could explain a lot about Amanda’s antagonism towards him. A very lot.”
July 24, 2013 at 9:31 am #272239
I’m up and at em at 615 am EST Itchy. So when I posted I’d been at work for about an hour. That’s why it was so easy for me to pass up breakfast. No one is getting up early enough to make me break fast.
July 24, 2013 at 9:32 am #272240
I think they are right. It also explains that “Control your woman” comment he made to PB a few weeks ago. Clearly he also doesn’t think highly of Amanda being the one wearing the pants in McCranda’s showmance.
July 24, 2013 at 11:15 am #272293
Thanks a lot classy drunk! Way to ruin it for all of us who haven’t seen a Jesus movie before! I purposely have avoided reading the bible so I wouldn’t know how it all ended and now you have RUINED it all for me! So rude.
July 24, 2013 at 11:44 am #272377
It’s ok, Potty, he comes back from the dead in the end, oh, ah, oops . . . does that help!?
July 24, 2013 at 12:01 pm #272391
LOL, this is why I have pledged my undying love to y’all!
July 24, 2013 at 12:08 pm #272392
Well I did say spoiler alert
July 24, 2013 at 12:23 pm #272401
Well, technically, we haven’t really reached the end…yet.
July 24, 2013 at 12:43 pm #272408
That’s right, we are still waiting for that blockbuster summer sequel. Hopefully they won’t over do it with the cgi, explosions and gimmicky 3D. You still need to have some plot.
July 24, 2013 at 1:02 pm #272416
“Spanish Inquisition: The Revenge of the Jesus. You’ll never expect what he’ll do next.” *Explosion*
I’m totally watching that shit.
July 24, 2013 at 1:15 pm #272418
Lemme guess – Michael Bay is directing.
I love you guys. For realsies.
July 24, 2013 at 1:27 pm #272419
There’s only one Director, PottyMouth. Supposedly.
July 24, 2013 at 2:20 pm #272420
Well, maybe Michael Bay is being divinely inspired.
I can just see the slow motion, dramatic music, rotating camera scene where all the heathens are stoically marched to…
July 24, 2013 at 3:02 pm #272427
That Spencer is a true piece of work. And by “work” I really mean “shit”. This from Joker’s : “Spencer jokes to Amanda about Hitler,”next time we are in the bathroom I’m going to say Come here Amanda, I have a shower for you”
July 24, 2013 at 3:37 pm #272444
Well guys… most of you probably didn’t even notice at all, but I’ve been away from my computer and Big Brother since early yesterday afternoon. Seems a lot has happened in the house since then with Elissa and her major melt-down and the arrival of all these baby ducks. now we are into this religious war thing…
To be truthful…. I really didn’t even take the time to watch the video of the BB house meeting. I read everyone’s posts and from what I read….. I don’t even care what Elissa did or the aftermath of it all. I think she was pushed by the producers to do SOMETHING to expose the fact that Kaitlin was about to be evicted and NOT Aaryn…. this, of course, was news to her for the most part and she handled it all wrong. The girl is an awful actress and can’t keep a straight thought in her head for more than 5 minutes without rambling. She’s mentally unstable to begin with and they sent her out to do a job she couldn’t handle. They picked a real winner when they put her in the house.
I haven’t even turned on the feeds today. I don’t care who gets evicted this week. I just want it to be over with.
You know the season’s gone to hell, when I come here and you guys are all talking about fucking religion…. WTF?
July 24, 2013 at 3:44 pm #272453
Well, BB is a religious experience for some folks…
And most of us did notice you weren’t here..and you were missed.
July 24, 2013 at 3:58 pm #272460
Yes, it’s not the same without you Chooch. But like I said, I don’t know how you feedwatchers can do this, even for a good season. This season? These people are all awful.
And we’re not talking about religion. We’re talking about movies. Sort of.
July 24, 2013 at 4:00 pm #272461
How attractive is this???
July 24, 2013 at 4:04 pm #272464
Tomorrow is the live eviction and know what??? For the first time in 15 seasons, I dont care who is going home either! I’m with you Chooch..I just dont care about these people (cept Judd..Hes a cutie)..Its finale nite for Hell’s Kitchen and I’m spending my nite with Gordon Ramsey (~swoon~) So piss off!
July 24, 2013 at 4:48 pm #272468
July 24, 2013 at 5:39 pm #272469
So apparently not much has happened today, going by what other update sites have had to say. I was investigating an Aryan DR leak (it was just the producer telling her about a request for foundation that she put in, no biggie) when I stumbled upon THIS gem of a conversation: McManda, Judd, and Spencer (ugh) were hanging out, talking about Game of Thrones, and Amanda was saying how great an actor Peter Dinklage is. Spencer swears up and down that “remember that one season that they brought those gnome guys into the Big Brother house? I swear he was one of them. When we get out of here, we should check his imdb page and it will say he was a gnome on BB.” So, if you’re keeping track, not only does Spencer think that Peter Dinklage, an Emmy-nominated, respected actor for more than ten years, would demean himself to entertain BB contestants, but he sails right past the offensive term “midget” to the outright outrageous term “gnome.” He never disappoints, does he?
BTW, I read earlier that he told Jessie he thinks her pussy would taste like butterscotch? I can’t even bring myself to find out if that’s true, so.
July 24, 2013 at 5:58 pm #272470
So I DID investigate, and it was Jessie telling Amanda (at 11:43ish) that Spencer told her that her vagina probably tastes like butterscotch. So it didn’t actually make it to the feeds, but somehow I don’t think Jessie is making it up.
Also, since last night, Spencer has made a couple of jokes about how he’s going to go Hitler on Amanda and send her to the showers.
I’m SO done with him. Can we get a quadruple eviction up in this bitch and get rid of Aryan, GinaMarie, Spencer, and crazy Elissa in one shot? That’d be great, thanks.
July 24, 2013 at 6:36 pm #272472
Chooch, I ALWAYS miss you when you’re away. I don’t comment here as often as I’d like to but I read all the comments and feedcaps and can’t imagine watching without you guys.
July 24, 2013 at 6:39 pm #272473
I also miss the hell out of Cherie. I wish she was here more often.
July 24, 2013 at 6:42 pm #272474
He definitely said that about Jessie. A few weeks ago he said the same things to Germy.
It is sad, because now that Aryan-gate has blown over, there is no way that CBS/BB is going to air any of his crap. If they did, they would be an admission that they used Aryan as a distraction from all the other people spewing this crap. Also, I don’t see viewers campaigning for him to go out since Aryan still i the house.
I don’t really care who goes home either, but I do want to know whether they are going to reveal the MVP thing to the HG. I have a feeling they won’t. I also wonder if the original MVP rules are going to go back again next week. I kind of wish it would stay with America keeping the MVP vote.
July 24, 2013 at 6:54 pm #272477
You guys know I’m pulling for a Judd/Jessie showmance, and we just got a little closer to that happening… Jessie needed someone to vent to (“I just HATE her!” – either Candice or GM, not sure which she was referring to), and Judd was there to comfort her. They did a little cuddling, she played with his hair…
Then STUPID GM stomped through the room like a buffalo. Ruined the moment. So Jessie decided to go to the HN room because she needed a nap, so they had a VERY long hug, at the end of which she kissed his shoulder and he kissed her cheek.
C’mon… am I the only one who thinks this is really cute?
July 24, 2013 at 6:59 pm #272478
Quadruple eviction sounds wonderful, Dashly! Mine would be: Gina Marie, Spencer, Aryan and Amanda.
Speaking of Amanda; She has a melt down because she thinks that Elissa talked about her body?? If you are going to walk around in front of strangers, oh yeah, and America, with band-aides on your nipples; you give folks permission to talk about your body. And, when you turn someones B-Day into a perfect opportunity for you to show off what you assume are your assets; you give folks permission to talk about your body.
July 24, 2013 at 7:04 pm #272479
I think it is adorable, too, Dashley.
And it gives me another reason to not like GM!
July 24, 2013 at 8:17 pm #272485
I’m pulling for them also, Dashley…but then again we share a brain so I’m not sure that counts.
July 24, 2013 at 8:21 pm #272486
I think Jessie and Judd are super cute too and I think it’s adorable that Judd is too shy to make a move. Jessie did start out on the wrong foot with the self proclaimed hottest girl in the house comment, but has slowly grown on me. I hope whole experience of having to deal with Mean Girls has opened her eyes. She and Judd actually seem to be one of the more believable couples of all the showmances.
July 24, 2013 at 8:28 pm #272497
“I don’t watch movies about Jesus. They always end the same. Spoiler alert. He dies.”
classy drunk…you need to hang around for the credits. He doesn’t stay dead.
July 24, 2013 at 9:09 pm #272509
You guys are really too funny. Itchy jimmy t and glitterous
I’m in stitches over here
July 24, 2013 at 9:14 pm #272511
What Catty??? I thought I stayed until the end? #mindblown
July 24, 2013 at 11:13 pm #272542
So we have a good idea of what the HoH comp is going to be tomorrow – a couple of hours ago, the HGs were given a practice game where they roll a ball down a ramp into a big rotating disk with various buckets:
July 24, 2013 at 11:27 pm #272544
Judd, still clearly convinced that Howard is hiding something, takes the opportunity while literally every other HG but him is occupied with another activity (HoH practice) and tries to search through Howard’s things, but doesn’t get very far. He doesn’t realize that those suitcases are just there for show, and don’t actually contain anything.
Amanda is pretty good at the HoH game, and Andy was doing pretty well, too.
The house has gone crazy again, but in a much more positive way. Most everyone is in a happy, laughing mood, and they’re having graphic discussions of sex while they hang out.
July 24, 2013 at 11:29 pm #272545
Okay, I’ll keep doing my dorky Judd/Jessie updates when there’s something to report if I’m not the only hopeful one.
July 24, 2013 at 11:33 pm #272548
So, a little preview of my recap of tonight’s BB episode, guys: I gave Spencer a new nickname.
Introducing Misogynistic Santa Claus!
July 25, 2013 at 12:08 am #272549
You know, going up to a Jewish person and joking you want to gas them… I hope someone cuts this guy’s balls off one day.
And he’s been overtly harrassing Jessie for a while — he does this in front of her too. If he said even a fraction of what he’s been saying to her and others in the workplace, he’d be canned in a second.
I’ve been saying for weeks now that Spencer’s the worst. Far worse than Aryan Aaryn, who’s just an idiot kid. Even worse than Jeremy, who was mostly intolerable because he was a giant ignorant douchebag. Spencer’s not an idiot, he’s not ignorant. He knows exactly what he’s saying. That’s what makes him so awful.
Also, Amanda was crying because Elissa took a couple of potshots at her while she was trying to do something nice for McCrae’s birthday (and they were all fueled on alcohol or whatever weird chemical cocktail they’ve been giving people this season). But obviously she has a body complex, that’s why she got the fake tits.

I don’t want to “dash” anyone’s hopes but… Jessie was complaining yesterday that she hadn’t gotten called to the DR for a week — which made her figure out she’s not being featured in the show.
So all of a sudden she starts snuggling with Judd… And guess what happens? She gets called to the DR!
I think they’re the chaste “virgins until we marry” type. At least Jesse seems to be.
July 25, 2013 at 1:19 am #272551
Also, a lot of people seem convinced that Elissa will “win” HOH this week. Although I don’t see how they can rig a ball-throwing contest? We’ll see.
July 25, 2013 at 1:20 am #272552
Also, I still got plenty of Local Sluts here, if anyone needs one.
July 25, 2013 at 1:22 am #272553
I think Amanda has the best looking body of all the girls… fake boobs and all. I’m not one to judge a girl because they bought some boobs. If I was young again,. I’d probably buy some too. At least her ribs aren’t sticking out. She certainly isn’t fucking fat!
July 25, 2013 at 1:35 am #272554
Oh… this HOH comp is definitely rigged for Elissa to win! Didn’t you know she was the 2011 Regional Skittleball Champion at the Cabarrus County Fair, which was held at the Dale Earnhardt Plaza in Kannapolis, NC.
July 25, 2013 at 3:06 am #272555
I give Amanda credit for purchasing a fairly natural looking set at least. Seeing her stand next to the Silicone Princess (Elissa), she looks just great. Even though either the other girls are tiny, or Amanda’s an Amazon.
Elissa was on another reality show last year, not just the Anderson Cooper thing. I think this is all part of a ploy to turn the Reilly family into another Kardashian Krew. Are there any other sisters?
July 25, 2013 at 4:33 am #272556
Candice and Howard were talking about their concern of Aaryn on the jury a couple of days ago, but I’m unsure how that’s an issue for this week. There are still 13 people in the house, so there are four more evictions before people start getting thrown onto jury.
However, I think now is the time they should be thinking about who they would want voting for them in the end. There’s no competition power-houses in the group, so, in my mind, the biggest threat is social game. Personally, I would be looking to drop any wishy washy votes (Elissa, Aaryn, GM, Jessie), before Jury, then start getting rid of anyone without conflict in the house (Judd, Andy, McCrae). Drop Amanda before she expects too much about the girl alliance falling apart, drop Howard, and then fight it out to the end between Candice, Kaitlin, and Spencer. Helen gets to stay to the end because a) I adore her and b) I’m looking at this from her perspective because I think she and I would have the most similar game play in the house.
July 25, 2013 at 6:26 am #272557
Candice and Howard have no chance in hell of winning this. No one trusts Howard and no one respects Candice (because she’s let Howard shove his hand too far up her butt by now…she’s become his puppet). Plus, they’re aligned with Spencer, which just goes to show how deeply they’re taking this whole bigotry thing.
I’m sure CBS would LOVE for one of them to win though. Maybe they can weasel out of the contract they signed with Elissa and Reilly Inc.?
July 25, 2013 at 6:45 am #272558
I just read somewhere that supposedly Howard was hitting on Amanda or did something to her before the live feeds started airing. It must have been something seriously bad to have pissed her off this much.
July 25, 2013 at 9:05 am #272582
Probably when he was going for the d-bag role. I could see that…
July 25, 2013 at 9:06 am #272583
Misogynist Santa! Love it! Let’s hope that ass gets outed before he goes home. I totally agree with your take on him, Itchy.
So, any sense of where the vote is headed tonight? Not that I care all that much.
July 25, 2013 at 9:09 am #272584
I think Howard hates Amanda as much as the other way around. I think he blames her for pulling away PB from the MC and ruing his chances and for being a woman who “doesn’t know her place”. Whatever happened before the feeds went on probably adds to it.
July 25, 2013 at 9:16 am #272585
What did you all think of Elissa’s edit last night? I thought that they showed a little of her annoying side, but TPTB also tried hard to send a message to the Brenchel army that they needed to keep voting for her as the MVP or she would just go home.
The show also, reminded me of how stupid everyone is being with the MVP. They all just keep assuming that she is going to get it and plan all of their strategies that way and I’m sure it will go back to that next week. This could have been a good twist if they hadn’t cast her, with people trying extra hard each week to be sneaky, evil, funny, etc. in order to get America’s vote. What a waste. If TPTB have any sense, they will keep the audience as MVP and not tell them until the end of the game.
July 25, 2013 at 9:41 am #272587
No doubt Howard hates Amanda for killing Christ
They’re definitely giving peeks into Elissa’s bitch queen routine — and from some of the comments I’ve read elsewhere, it’s working.
But I think the idiots who are ‘fans’ of Rachel (and by extension Elissa) like exactly this kind of idiocy, so they’re probably eating it up. Maybe they’ll start showing some of Elissa’s computer glitch-like freakouts. The Brenchel Army will have a giant collective orgasm. Life vest? We’ll need a submarine!
July 25, 2013 at 10:18 am #272588
I don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up, but … maybe AFTER Week #5 is over Julie will say the magic words “Double Eviction”.
July 25, 2013 at 11:06 am #272611
SQEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Double elimination!!!!
July 25, 2013 at 11:09 am #272613
Chooch did you watch Dexter on Sunday? There’s so much on tv on Sundays it’s taking away from my Sunday Funday
July 25, 2013 at 11:17 am #272629
Dashley, how ’bout Misogynist Kris Kringle!?
Can’t wait to see if the pic shows up . . .
July 25, 2013 at 11:18 am #272630
oh well, I thought of Kris Kringle when I first saw him, you know, the one from Sant Claus is coming to town . . .
July 25, 2013 at 11:23 am #272633
My take on Elissa is she’s so above all this . . . very snobby, and her comments on Amanda’s fringe one-piece were stupid. Is it me, is there something wrong with a one-piece? She was so dismissive and condescending . . . . very rude.
I don’t know why, but every time Amanda goes after Howard it feels vindictive and bugs the shit out of me! I can’t see what he’s done, and she’s not Itchy, so I don’t get it . . .
Funny how the girls way outnumber the boys, but can’t stop fighting amongst themselves!
July 25, 2013 at 11:53 am #272646
How about Santa Klaus Barbie? Too obscure? Cause I have recapping duties tonight and I’m officially making that Spencer’s nickname unless someone discourages me.
July 25, 2013 at 12:02 pm #272652
How about Pervy Klaus?
July 25, 2013 at 12:11 pm #272654
By the way, TheMiki, I love the Cthullu-Horton love child you have for your avatar. Oh, if Dr. Seuss would have gotten to illustrate Lovecraft…
July 25, 2013 at 12:25 pm #272658
PERVY CLAUS! LOVE. Guys, we’re all such a good team!
July 25, 2013 at 12:36 pm #272659
July 25, 2013 at 12:37 pm #272660
Itchy, I think you especially should read this blog post by former BB winner Jun, but really, it’s an interesting read for anyone who’s a BB fan. She did an FAQ about what happens in the Diary Room: http://jundishes.com/2013/07/23/big-brother-diary-room-faqs/
The moral of the story is that, yes, there is a little producer influence on the game via the Diary Room, but all these conspiracy theories about the game being fixed are just conspiracy theories.
As for Jessie, I don’t know. She HAS been resistant to a Judd showmance up until now, but so has he. Obviously, as evidenced by his anxiety over being HoH and being seen as a target, his strategy is to get through the summer with people never considering him a threat. And that includes resisting a showmance. Isn’t it possible that they just really like each other, and Jessie feels like the rest of us – the better she gets to know him, the more attractive he is? Even when they do have moments of affection, they both seem like they’re REALLY holding back, and those moments are really brief.
Just like everyone else, I really didn’t like Jessie at first, especially with that comment about being a target because she’s pretty. But now that I’ve seen so much more of her on the feeds, she reminds me a LOT of a good friend of mine, and I think it’s possible that she was joking and it just didn’t come across. Keep in mind that that whole conversation happened before the feeds started airing – and she might have already started to notice that the other ladies were being catty. We don’t know the timeline or the order of the events, so she may not have had those thoughts in a vacuum. I’m choosing at this point to give her the benefit of the doubt, because I like her so much more than most of the people in that house.
July 25, 2013 at 12:38 pm #272661
Dammit! Why is there an option to add a link if it won’t actually let you add a link???? Jimmyt, there’s an entire rewrite of The Call of Cthulhu (fully illustrated) done as a Dr. Seuss book. It’s brilliant. If you google search Dr Seuss Cthulthu Deviantart you’ll find it. The guy that does it is amazing.
July 25, 2013 at 12:56 pm #272669
TheMiki, just copy and paste your link, don’t bother with using that stupid icon. Nobody else does.
As for tonight’s show, you shouldn’t have much of a problem recapping it. Andy was up in the HOH room this morning with his report to Judd. according to him, the vote will be unanimous, so there will be no blood on Judd’s hands. Kaitlin’s gone.
Oh… and Jessie helped Judd pack all of his stuff from the HOH room to take downstairs.
July 25, 2013 at 12:58 pm #272671
Last night, at 3 AM:
“Why did you have to leave? I miss him.”
July 25, 2013 at 1:00 pm #272672
July 25, 2013 at 1:09 pm #272678
Also, Judd outed the “Grasshopper” alliance to McManda, Andy, and Elissa. They all think it’s the funniest thing ever. And it has only strengthened Amanda’s resolve to target Howard.
July 25, 2013 at 1:39 pm #272688
Well, I didn’t pay attention to Big Brother much until about season 6, and it was only when I discovered the live feed forum (I think that was season 9 or 10? Maybe even later) that I really started enjoying the show. So I can’t really speak to whether the DR sessions have changed since Jun’s season. And I couldn’t say when it was that people really started complaining about producer manipulation.
Jun does admit that it has indeed been 10 years since her season, the DR sessions might be different. And obviously the producers would handle different people differently — some people are simply really thick and need help to make the season go they want it to. Especially, as she points out, the morons they’ve been bringing in lately.
But she makes a good point that, in all this time, no former contestant has ever come out and said any of this was rigged. So there’s that.
This season does feel a little different. The whole idea of bringing in Rachel’s sister, at the same time as the MVP, which Rachel’s sister magically wins week after week (even though it was pretty clear after the first week she was a dimwit), and then, each time she’s up for elimination, she somehow gets spared… I dunno. Smells pretty bad when you sniff it up close…
Besides, part of the fun of Big Brother (for me) is conspiracisizing (as GM would say) about the producer manipulation. So ex-cu-u-use me!
As for Howard, I’m fascinated by the way he talks with his hands. He obviously studied at the Chris Harrison school of Hostdouches.
July 25, 2013 at 1:47 pm #272689
Does no one in this house know the proper way to eat a mango?
July 25, 2013 at 1:58 pm #272693
Aw, Itchy, I wasn’t telling you that you were wrong or anything – I just thought you would find it interesting to hear the perspective of someone who has lived through it.
Did you see that facebook post from a supposed former BB production person that says everything is fixed and Amanda is going to win the season? It reeks of made-up weirdness, especially because she’s all like “the reason I am doing this anonymously…” except that her name and picture are right there, so that’s a little odd. But in any case, it’s food for thought. I personally don’t rule out the conspiracy theories entirely, but I also think that if the HGs are good enough at the game, they should be able to overcome production interference.
July 25, 2013 at 2:16 pm #272696
Heh, I don’t mind being wrong, not to worry (well not about Big Brother). But I think Jun’s right in that they’re stocking the house with idiots these days.
And there’s definitely a tendency now among reality shows to produce “stars” (who they recycle for followup seasons) that didn’t seem to exist in the past. And Elissa definitely falls into that category — CBS was hoping they’d get viewers to tune in just because they weren’t casting Rachel’s sister. Too bad it backfired — Rachel may have been annoying as hell, but she was an outlandish television presence. Elissa, on the other hand, is drugged up self-righteous prig.
Anyhoo, I don’t doubt for a moment that Judd and Jessie are having a true flirtmance. But I think the realization that the flirtmance is going to get her more camera time is helping Jessie move things a bit more quickly.
And yes, she actually seems like one of the nicer people in the house. If not the nicest (even Judd gets a bit caustic when his meds wear off).
July 25, 2013 at 2:28 pm #272699
Oh, TheMiki — I got the Klaus Barbie reference. But it’s just not enough.
How about simply: Maggot ?
July 25, 2013 at 3:18 pm #272714
I think producers certainly nudge, and with increasingly dumber people they need to nudge even more. I love conspiracizitimating with your guys but I also believe that in most cases what people perceive as conspiracies are really the result of inept people trying to cover up for their own incompetence.
Given who made it into the house this year, I’m pretty sure that the Grodner team is full of those kind of people. Come to think of it, they are probably hiring people like Lawon or Enzo to be in the production team. That would explain A LOT! Now that that’s a conspiracy I can get behind.
July 25, 2013 at 3:23 pm #272715
I understand why Judd and Jessie are worried about showmances (well at least Judd, Jessie was dying for one at first). In the past people have tried to break those up right away but this year there is so much other weird stuff going, not to mention two other more worrisome showmance already happening, that I don’t think they have anything to worry about.
Let’s hope it happens. If anything so that we can use their couple name: Jedd!
July 25, 2013 at 3:57 pm #272730
“CBS was hoping they’d get viewers to tune in just because they weren’t casting Rachel’s sister. Too bad it backfired — Rachel may have been annoying as hell, but she was an outlandish television presence. Elissa, on the other hand, is drugged up self-righteous prig.”
July 25, 2013 at 4:36 pm #272731
Except for the typos. I really need to start proofreading before I hit ‘send.’ Sheesh.
July 25, 2013 at 4:49 pm #272733
I didn’t really notice DR manipulations or production meddling until Dr. Will returned for the All-Stars in season #7. He would go in the DR and plug ideas to them about different things that he & Boogie could do to make the show more entertaining. Of course, he & Boogie would do them anyways. But they spent a lot of time on these little “stories”. Dr. Will even talked about doing a show for CBS in the future. He ended up doing something on Entertainment Tonight and then there was that stint where he removed Boogie’s dick warts. THIS is when the producers realized they could have some sort of “different” control over the house guests and the things they do… IMO.
July 25, 2013 at 5:01 pm #272734
Well, I can’t see how they could possibly manipulate this next HOH comp — it’s seems entirely random. Completely based on luck. Literally anyone could win this. Even Howard!
But I love how the HGs go around talking about how they’re definitely going to win this one, then talk about who they’ll nominate.
July 25, 2013 at 5:31 pm #272736
Helen finally pulled Kaitlin aside to pretend she was wishy washy on her vote and *pretend* she might be thinking of voting to evict her. Kaitlin was none too pleased, and after trying to sell Helen on voting to evict Aryan, started in with some threats about who she’s going after if she wins HoH. LOL… poor girl has NO clue the vote is going to be unanimous, and she’s going home.
Everyone’s putting on the finishing touches getting ready for the live show, and GM, dressing to the nines for television, seems to forget there are already cameras on her:
Anyhoo, West Coast over here, and for some reason I try not to hang out on the feeds or the forum until AFTER the episode, so I’ll see you guys in the Week 5 forum in a few hours!
July 25, 2013 at 5:37 pm #272737
I’m checking out until I’ve had a chance to watch the show…
Shame about Kaitlin though. Oh well…
July 25, 2013 at 5:47 pm #272738
I didn’t see the typo until you brought it to my attention! After many years of reading Gasmi, and now Trashtastics..I read posts from folks that I know will interest me. I leave spelling, punctuation and grammatical error to the obnoxiously smart people who let us know the error of our ways.
