BB day 69 Thursday

Post  Banjo on 2013-08-29, 15:06

The live feeds were down for awhile, now back without anything important going on. They will go down again an hour or two before the live show. But that's okay because we have a reliable east coast live feed of the CBS show from a station in Nova Scotia of all places....scratch


Tonight on Big Brother another HG will be sent to Jury and this time itís down to Aaryn and Andy. Thereís little doubt which one of them will be evicted. The HGs decided days ago that this is Aarynís week to say goodbye. Elissa will consider her HoH a success with Aarynís eviction as that was her original goal coming in to power last week.

As for who gets power next, well thatís going to decide a lot. There will be six players competing for HoH, but Iíd argue that only four or five of them will really be trying.

Andy and Spencer might be part of The Exterminators alliance, but theyíre sitting right in the middle and might not want to risk alienating either side by having to name the next set of nominations. Iíd expect Andy to most likely throw this comp and possibly Spencer as well with all that in mind. Judd and GinaMarie will be playing hard to win.

Should McCranda score a win tonight then watch out, Elissa. If itís anyone elseís win then McCranda are likely to find themselves split up at the next eviction.




'Big Brother 15' Recap: Zingbot Returns and Amanda Loses Her Mind
Wednesday, August 28, 2013

Senior Writer, BuddyTV

Big Brother 15 finally started to get great this week with Judd's return, Elissa winning HoH and Amanda not getting her way for the first time all season. I suspect CBS knows this is the best week ever, which is why they're doing everything in their power to make fans happy. Enter the Zingbot!

I know some people may think the snarky robot is dumb and annoying, but those people are idiots. Zingbot is my hero. Zingbot represents everything good and pure in society. He is the alpha and the omega, one of the most glorious creations in the history of mankind. Thank you, Big Brother 15, for giving me something to zing about.

Nomination Fallout

Aaryn is sad and McCrae is uneasy about finally losing power, but the real fallout comes from Amanda, who is furious that two members of her 3 A.M. alliance are on the block. When GinaMarie dares to be nice to Elissa, Amanda loses her mind and wants to punch GM in the face with brass knuckles.

Amanda then interrogates Elissa about what she'd do if Aaryn wins PoV. Elissa is noncommittal and evasive, which means she's lying. She's the world's worst liar, so Amanda is suspicious. As bad as Elissa is when it comes to actually talking to people, Amanda is even worse, acting indignant that anyone would dare lie to her or not do exactly what she wants. She's the kid who thinks she owns every toy, and if another kid starts playing with something, she runs over and steals it, even if she doesn't want it.

This prompts Elissa to start to plot against Amanda, telling Judd she wants to backdoor her. Elissa then tells Aaryn about this plan. It's a good idea, but this is NOT something you should be talking about before the Power of Veto. This is yet more proof that Elissa isn't strategic enough to be great at this game.

Veto Player Drama

Elissa picks Amanda to play for the veto, and once again, Elissa is incapable of hiding her feelings. Aaryn gets Houseguest's Choice and chooses Judd, which makes Amanda furious because she should've picked Andy. Why? Andy is more loyal to McCranda and would've saved McCrae, not Aaryn.

This leads to a fight between Amanda and Aaryn that happens while Amanda is in the shower...with McCrae. Gross. It's yet another argument where Aaryn talks about doing what's best for her, and Amanda says that doesn't make any sense because it's not what's best for their alliance.

Amanda vs. Elissa

Later, Elissa and GM are talking in the kitchen and when Amanda walks by, they stop. This infuriates Amanda, so she calls them out on it and starts yelling at GM. It's a great fight, with McCrae trying to drag Amanda away as Elissa just laughs about how ridiculous the situation is.

Afterwards Amanda and Elissa have a one-on-one where Amanda vents about how fake GM is for being nice to Elissa, claiming that she's been Elissa's friend the whole time. That's just a giant lie. It's kind of true that Amanda has always wanted to keep Elissa, but only because she hates her so much, thinks she doesn't deserve to be there, and knows she could beat her at the end.

Amanda then asks if she's going to be backdoored, and Elissa is vague, but then says "No." Amanda demands to know the truth, and Elissa starts laughing. Amanda cries and her tears give me joy. Elissa should be laughing, because that's what happens when you realize a bully doesn't really have any power over you.

Zingbot!

The Zingbot wakes everyone up and calls them all "losers." He then proceeds to dole out some of the harshest zings ever.

The Zingbot calls out McCrae for letting Amanda wear the pants in their relationship. He says GM is like the chick from Fatal Attraction, Andy is a floater (which cuts him to his core), Aaryn is mean, Amanda has a tramp stamp and Elissa is a cheap imitation of Rachel. To use Amanda's favorite word, it was "glorious."

The Power of Veto Competition

It's Baby Zingbot's 1st birthday party, and it's the typical competition where HGs must roll a ball back and forth 250 times across an inclined plane without dropping it.

There's a lot of dropping by the HGs. GM drops her ball after about 50 times, then starts again. Judd drops after 164 and he's so winded that he starts dry-heaving. That's a great anti-smoking commercial.

Amanda, miraculously, does the best, slow and steady without ever dropping her ball. It actually comes down to her and GM, who comes back to within 10 away from Amanda despite having that first 50 deleted.

Unfortunately, it's too little too late and Amanda, who has never won anything, wins the Power of Veto, allowing her to save McCrae. Man, she really DOES wear the pants.

Worst Case Scenario

Elissa is crestfallen because her plan to backdoor Amanda is now DOA. Aaryn is equally despondent, and Andy is worried because he's smart enough to see that he could be in danger.

Amanda and McCrae are just happy that the McCranda Army is sticking around. Amanda thinks this is great, not realizing that her buddy Andy is freaking out.

Elissa laments how she's going home next week because everyone who goes against Amanda goes home. Judd promises her that he'll have her back.

Amanda's Master Plan

Elissa smiles and acts like she's OK with Amanda winning, making a joke about how she threw the competition. This pushes the wrong button on Amanda, so she goes nuclear, yelling in Elissa's face about how much she sucks and how all of her botox is nasty. It's awful, but they don't even show the worst of it, when Amanda started making fun of Elissa's husband and children.

This is allegedly part of Amanda's "master plan" to get GM put up on the block. She wants to torture Elissa so that Andy can swoop in and be a shoulder for her to cry on so that Elissa will like Andy and want to keep him, thus forcing her to nominate GM instead.

Unfortunately, Elissa doesn't tolerate bullies and all Amanda really accomplishes is making others (especially GM and Judd) realize what a disgusting, ugly, horrible person she really is.

Andy admits that he "despises" this behavior, but thinks it may be good for his game. He goes along with Amanda's plan by telling Elissa he's sorry, he's her friend and he's ashamed he was ever aligned with someone like Amanda. All of this was part of Amanda's plan.

The Power of Veto Ceremony

Amanda gets snarky by using Rachel's "No one comes between me and my man" line before using the Veto on McCrae. Elissa responds by saying that Rachel is probably mortified that Amanda stole her line. Elissa then nominates Andy. Amanda gets in one last dig, calling Elissa "trash" before ending the ceremony.

Amanda then pronounces 3 A.M. dead, but says 2 A.M. will still be around. Not so fast, silly girl. That's followed by the single greatest moment of the entire season. Better than GM eating fro-yo. Better than Aaryn drinking nail polish remover. In the diary room, Andy says:

"I need Amanda and McCrae's loyalty this week, and in turn, I will NOT be giving them my loyalty from this point on. Because Amanda and McCrae have gotten me this far, but I'm not playing this game for third place and it's time to get rid of them."

HALLELUJAH! In the span of a few seconds, Andy may have gone from my least favorite HG to my most favorite.

I thought the studio audience was a little harsh on Aaryn. Sounded like there were some 'holier than thou' dolts in the audience. HOH comp is still going on with the feeds down. They may come back up before it's over. Either way, we can hope for a McCranda defeat.



'Big Brother 15' Recap: Week 9 Eviction
Thursday, August 29, 2013

John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

There's good news and bad news tonight on Big Brother 15. The good news is that all of those people who petitioned to get Aaryn out of the house are finally getting their wish as she's nominated and certainly going to be evicted. The bad news is that, because she's in the jury, Julie Chen probably won't be telling her about losing her job.

Still, it's sure to be a very awkward interview, especially since Aaryn was still doing her racist Asian voice as recently as last night. Will Julie dare to confront her on it?

We also finally get to hear Andy give a nominee speech (he's been talking it up a lot over the past few days) and there's a new HoH competition with a lot on the line. It's basically the Exterminators (Andy, Spencer, Judd and GinaMarie) vs. McCranda.

BUT FIRST...this is my Big Brother 15 live blog!

As soon as Julie starts talking, we see Andy on the screen stand up and tug on his shorts for some reason. How dare you steal focus from the Chenbot!

The Exterminators

Aaryn thinks she's going home and Andy is freaking out a bit after being nominated, but he's looking forward to his new plan that does NOT involve McCranda.

Despite the failure of Amanda's master plan to torture Elissa, she's still being a raging bitch, getting in Elissa's face and talking about her plastic surgery. Elissa, to her credit, refuses to give Amanda to satisfaction of reacting.

Amanda then rants to everyone about how she's the only person being mean to Elissa while everyone else is being nice to her, and it's making her look like the bully. She's doing a lot more than looking like a bully. She then rants about how anyone who dares to be nice to Elissa will be her target.

Amanda's behavior is a topic of discussion for GM, Spencer, Judd and Andy as they all find her actions disgusting. They all realize that McCranda has been pulling the strings, so they decide to team up to take them down.

The Exterminators are born, a four-person alliance designed to take out snakes and rats. Well, it's actually just a group united in their combined hatred for Amanda.

Elsewhere, Amanda gets emotional with Aaryn talking about how hard she tried to keep her safe. Um, she only tried hard to keep Andy off the block. Amanda knows Andy has been loyal to her longer, so that's all that matters to her.

Knowing that McCranda are against her, Aaryn decides to try and woo Spencer and Judd. She tells them all about 3 A.M. and how she was only doing what was best for them. However, Aaryn has proven herself to be willing to abandon an alliance if it saves her (Jeremy and Kaitlin, 3 A.M., etc), so they don't really want to keep her.

Aaryn changes her approach and goes back to McCranda, saying that she's done more for them than Andy and that she's a bigger target than Amanda. She also throws Spencer under the bus, telling Amanda that Spencer told her he's coming after McCranda. Amanda immediately calls Spencer over to confront him, and Spencer denies it. Her points are valid and Amanda is actually considering keeping Aaryn.

Pick the Punishment

The first person or people eliminated from tonight's HoH competition will get a punishment we get to vote for. They will have to wear a bunny or chicken suit for 48 hours. I'm already laughing. Spencer the Foul-Mouthed Easter Bunny? Amanda the Slutty Chicken? Awesome!

Julie and Dan the Man

Season 10 winner and season 14 runner-up Dan Gheesling shows up to offer his take on the game. Dan gives Amanda credit for actually playing the game, but he also thinks she's just naturally mean and is playing the game "like a brat."

Dan then tells us that Danielle, Ian and Frank are all friends with him, so they've forgiven him for the Mist. Dan also picks Judd as his favorite. He also hates showmances and is astonished McCranda are still there. He just really, REALLY hates showmances.

Showmance Update

We then get to see how famous showmances have done in the outside world. Rachel is very bubbly as always and Brendon says almost nothing. That poor man. I think he blinked "S.O.S." in Morse code.

Rachel also says they had the first Big Brother marriage and she wants the first Big Brother babies. But hot on their trails are Daniele Donato and Dominic Briones from season 13, who are also married. They are so damn cute, and Daniele's hair has gone from blonde to black to brown. As much as I hate Brenchel is how much I love Daninic or Domiele or whatever you call these two.

Finally, Jeff and Jordan are cute and simple, as always. Jordan basically demands that Jeff put a ring on it already. Seriously, dude, it's been four years.

Julie and the HGs

Julie asks Judd how things have changed since he was in the jury house, and he thinks it hasn't changed at all. She then calls out Amanda on being mean to Elissa, and she claims Elissa just pushed her buttons and it's all in the past. Elissa starts talking and you can see that Amanda wants to go off again on live TV.

Julie then calls out the HGs on being so messy. After she congratulates Spencer on NOT being nominated, he talks and then mouths off about how Julie has never asked him a question.

The Eviction

Aaryn's speech is about how much she loves her family and the opportunity to be on the show. Andy quotes Abraham Lincoln and professes his love for Anderson Cooper. WTF?

Judd votes to evict...Aaryn (the Texas Tornado)
Spencer votes to evict...Aaryn
GinaMarie votes to evict...Aaryn (she's really sad)
Amanda votes to evict...Aaryn
McCrae votes to evict...Aaryn

Aaryn is evicted 5-0!

This is one time where I'm NOT upset about a unanimous vote. It's the fifth one of the season, and this also marks the ninth time McCrae has voted with the house, tying the record set by season 6 winner Maggie Ausburn.

There are some "Boos" from the audience when Aaryn comes out. Awesome. Aaryn gives the origin story of her feud with Elissa about not being told that she was Rachel's sister.

We finally get the racism conversation and Aaryn says nothing she said was intended to be racist. Julie then reads back some of her worst comments and she claims she doesn't even remember saying them. The audience definitely doesn't believe her and laughs and jeers at her defense. They laugh some more when Aaryn claims she's friends with Andy, Candice and Helen. This is just brutal.

Goodbye Messages: Elissa has nothing nice to say, so she doesn't say anything at all.

For her final words, Aaryn starts to do some damage control and Julie ends it by saying she hopes that, when Aaryn watches this season back, she'll see what she did wrong and start to change. I'm not sure if this was as satisfying as I'd hoped. I want to feel badly for her because she literally just walked into a room of people who hate her and take joy in watching her squirm, but she DID say those things.

The HoH Competition

The HGs must pick up an egg through a maze and maneuver it through a maze and bring it back to a basket. The first person to a dozen eggs wins. In addition, their feet are tied together, so they must hop. And whoever has the fewest eggs at the end has to wear a chicken suit for 48 hours. Actually what it is, is to maneuver a plastic egg behind chicken wire , reaching through with their fingers and getting it over to the opening where they can grab it and take it back to their basket, hopping all the while.


Next Thursday is ANOTHER double eviction! Uh-oh, watch out Judd. Also, Julie promised a "special competition" on Sunday's show. I'm guessing it's a luxury comp and will most likely tie in to one of CBS' new fall shows, or maybe a preview of the new season of Survivor, featuring Big Brother 12 winner Hayden Moss.

Whoo doggies ! GinaMarie won the HOH ! clap†As a member of the Exterminators it is now expected that she will put Amanda and McCrae up for eviction. This will be epic ! Even if one of them wins POV, the other will go out, because the replacement will only be the pawn. This shapes up to be a very entertaining week. woohoo
