Big Brother 15, Episode #26: Oh, How the Tables Have Turned, Again!
With the Jury Members and the remaining House Guests all competing for the HoH, the future of the BB House is really up in the air! Will Helen have a comeback, crushing 3 AM, or will another Jury Member be able to come back into the House to try and finish what they started at the beginning of the summer? Read on and you’ll find out!
The Off the Wall Competition continued in this episode, with McCrae and Spencer being the first two casualties of the game. Andy and Jessie quickly followed them. Helen was trying to hang on in order to beat Amanda, but she, too, fell off the wall, followed by Candice, wishing Judd, the returning Jury Member, good luck in the BB House.
As the mini platforms began to move quicker beneath the feet of the remaining competitors’ feet, Judd fell off, losing his chance at being HoH this week. Everyone else (Elissa, Amanda and GinaMarie) were hanging on for dear life. After tapping into her Reilly Power Ring for extra power, Elissa pulled off some really spectacular saves to catch 10 baseballs first, making her this week’s HoH! Oh, Readers, it was amazing! My oldest and I were at the edge of our seats! We were also watching some major boot shaking from many of the other House Guests.
Elissa confessed that she wanted Amanda and McCrae on the block to make up for splitting up the Mom Squad the week before. She was also curious as to why Judd didn’t want to give her hug wen he left the House a few weeks ago. Judd told her about how he wasn’t happy with how he had left the House at Helen’s bidding. Judd went on to say that this unpleasantness was water under the bridge, and that he wanted to return to the game with a new slate.
Amanda, curious as to where Elissa’s head was at, went to her and asked if she and McCrae were safe this week. Since Amanda is Elissa’s main target this week, Elissa said that the two of them being on the block together was a possibility. ELissa also said Aaryn was a probable pick. Amanda tried to change Elissa’s mind by throwing GinaMarie in the line of fire, if she was going after Aaryn. Amanda left the room, even more worried and upset over not getting her way.
After relaying the information to McCrae, Amanda got McCrae to go to Elissa, since he was able to persuade many other HoHs to do 3 AM’s bidding. McCrae also started throwing GinaMarie’s name around as a possible candidate for Eviction. Elissa simply told McCrae that this was her HoH week, so she would be deciding who was going up on block. McCrae tried every way possible to get Elissa off of the Idea of Amanda and himself being on the block, but Elissa stonewalled McCrae at every turn. Amanda, after hearing about McCrae’s negative progress with Elissa, went back to Elissa, in fear of not being able to control this week’s nominations, crying and pleading to not to have the two of them on the block together, but no dice, Readers! Elissa wouldn’t budge for them!
Aaryn, also worried about Nominations this week, was so preoccupied in her thoughts about being on the block that she took a swig of nail polish remover instead of her water from her water bottle! Spencer and Andy witnessed what happened, and they knew why she did such a crazy thing.
Elissa was sharing her thoughts with Judd on how she would like for this week. She wanted to see either Amanda or Aaryn go to the Jury House this week. Judd pledged his full support for Elissa’s plans, and wanted to befriend Elissa. She reciprocated Judd’s sentiments, so much so that they agreed to create an alliance between themselves. I wonder what they will name their alliance?
Aaryn went to Elissa to try and sway Elissa not to put her up on the block. Aaryn was trying to make Elissa fall for her line of BS by proposing fake promises, and fake deals. Just as Aaryn had done to her the week before, Elissa listened with deaf ears.
At the Nomination Ceremony, Elissa’s choices for Eviction were revealed: Aaryn and McCrae. Elissa said she nominated McCrae because he was a strong player, and she hoped he would win the Veto to get himself off the block. Elissa nominated Aaryn to show her how Elissa felt when Aaryn targeted her last week, and because Aaryn as been making Elissa’s life in the BB House miserable since Week #1. Elissa, please tell us how you really feel.
Oh, Readers, I smell a back-door situation being set-up by Elissa here to get rid of Amanda! The only way this won’t work is if McCrae or any other competitor wins the PoV and doesn’t use it at all. This way, the nominations stay the same, and Amanda is safe for the week. Amanda wouldn’t care if Aaryn is directly in the line of fire. She was just using Aaryn to lock her HoH noms last week. 3 AM was doomed to fail from its inception. Will Elissa’s plan work? Will McCrae save himself or sacrifice himself for Amanda? How will the PoV change the game this week? Oh, before I forget, in my next post, the House Guests will be getting a visit from another seasonal visitor! Come back to my blog to check up on this season of BB 15 to see who it is!
Before I go, I do ave to give a humongous thank you to fellow WordPress blogger, Notes from a Southern Kitchen for showing so much support to my blog, and to my eldest child, for giving me a HUGE assist on this episode’s post! It really means a lot to me.
Until my nest post, Readers!
