Big Brother 15, Episode #2 – Let Me Put in My Two Cents…
Episode #2 has the House Guests settling down into the rhythm of the BB game. Just about every House Guests wants to be able to influence HoH, McCrae’s decision over who should be up for the first Eviction of the season, and it’s making it hard for McCrae to decide who to nominate. Who will he ultimately choose to be on the block? Read on and you’ll find out!
After McCrae won the HoH, and the new twist of the BB MVP was announced, the House Guests were excited and worried how this new power would effect their game. They were also sizing up the opposite sex. Jeremy thought and Judd that one of the hot women of the House would be chosen as the first MVP. The ladies were more about the looking at the guys, and less about game play. Some of them gave who they thought was hot code names so they could talk about them without them finding out. Here were some of the ones they revealed:
David – Ken (3 guesses why…)
Nick – Manhattan, then changed to Big (SATC reference)
Jeremy – The Sailor,(because he works on a boat).
McCrae then showed off his HoH Room to the House Guests. He also promised the House Guests that he would not catch HoH-itis (having a power trip because you are HoH). Everyone laughed because a bunch of the House Guests started referring to Rachel when she cause this -itis every time she became HoH. Some of them even did impressions of her, and started talking smack about her. This worried Elissa because this could be placing a huge target in her back in this game.
Nick and Jeremy were talking strategy in one of the various bedrooms in the House. Nick brought up the idea of having a five-person alliance. It would have them, along with Howard and Spencer for their straightforwardness and strength, and McCrae because he seemed wily, and the fact that he was currently the HoH doesn’t hurt either. Jeremy loved this idea because it brought along his original alliance of three (Howard and Spencer), so he wouldn’t have to cross enemy lines to make decisions in the game. Nick then took this idea to the others formerly mentioned. They were all on board. The next order of business for this group of guy was to figure out who to put up for nominations. After a few ideas were thrown around, David’s name popped up because he was, according to them, the last good-looking guy in the House, and the only other physical threat in this game besides themselves.
Aaryn and David had plans of their own for this game. They decided to work together as a team while swinging in the BB hammock in the backyard. David was over the moon about this idea because he wanted to have a showmance this summer more than the money, and he had been admiring Aaryn since they got in the House, and he felt she would be the brains of their operation. Aaryn felt the same way about David, and was excited to play them game with him.
Elissa doesn’t know it yet, but the whole House was.a buzz about their suspicions about her being Rachel Reilly, sister. Some House Guests were upset because they thought she was shady and stupid if she thought anyone wouldn’t figure out who she was. Others thought she was going to have the same attitude as Rachel, and started pegging her as Rachel. I wonder how she’s going to get out of this predicament.
The first Have-Not Competition, “Cooler the Gang” took place to figure out which House Guests would have to be Have-Nots for the week. The House Guests were split up into three teams: Red, Blue and Yellow. Each team had one person paddling with their hands on a inertube raft across the BB man-made lake to retrieve empty beer cans. This person had to then go into their team’s cooler and get a can and row themselves back to where their team was holding up a platform for them to build a pyramid of 15 cans. The last team to finish this task would be Have-Nots. The Blue team finished quickly, while the Red and Yellow teams struggled. After many fumbles and bumbles, the Red team watched as the Yellow team completed their pyramid, making them the Have-Nots. These people are: Elissa, Howard, Helen, Andy and a fifth person. ( I couldn’t tell who it was…I will update this post ASAP when I figure it out).
The Have-Nots were then shown the Have-Not Room for the season. Their luxurious beds this season are actually airplane seats. BB, you’re so bad! I think I would end up sleeping in the floor! Just about all of the Have-Nots were “excited” about their new digs.
The focus of the game shifted to McCrae and who he was going to nominate for Eviction. People kept popping into his HoH Room to give their two cents about who they felt he should put up on the chopping block. A bunch of House Guests were also advising McCrae while relaxing in the BB backyard. They were all talking about how they didn’t like Candice. Others were trying to lean McCrae towards Jessie because she was annoying them with her silly crushes. Elissa felt she should come clean to someone, so she went to McCrae and told him. She also did this because she felt it would make her seem less shady and asked if he wouldn’t put her up because of her situation. Some wanted Elissa up because of who she was. As much as McCrae wanted to please everyone in the House, he wanted to nominate people that would get him further along in the game.
At the Nomination Ceremony, It was revealed that McCrae had chosen Jessie and Candice for Eviction. After feeding his nominee some stupid reason why he chose them, he admitted that they were the two least liked people in the House at the moment. He also didn’t want too much blood on his hands so early in the game. He wanted to leave that to the BB MVP.
That was an interesting episode. I like his choices. They were safe, and at this point in the game, you have to really beef up your social game before you start backstabbing your new friends. Will Jessie and Candice save themselves from Eviction by winning the Veto? Who will be BB’s first MVP? Will we finally see our first BB showmance kiss? Hopefully all of these questions will be answered on the next episode of Big Brother!
Until my next post, Readers!
