Big Brother 15: Episode #33: Dodged Another Bullet
Hi There, Readers!
This episode was a special night, where a House Guest was going to leave the House a day early McCrae is in a bit of a sticky wicket as he is up on the block with GinaMarie, one of the members of The Exterminators. He’s alone in the House with no real allies. His only hope: winning the PoV to take himself off the block, giving him another shot to win the next HoH. Does he have what it takes to get himself out of the hole he is in? Continue reading and you’ll find out!
While McCrae worried about his safety in the House, Spencer, GinaMarie and Judd were in the HoH Room talking about what would happen if McCrae did the unthinkable and win the PoV to save himself. Judd asked Spencer who he would put up. Without really skipping a beat, Spencer said it would be Judd. Judd was taken aback for a moment, then tried to get Spencer to change his mind. Judd later confessed he found it weird that Spencer would be shielding Andy at this point in the game instead of himself.
GinaMarie and McCrae were asked to go into the Diary Room. They came back out, their friendship bracelet cut, letting everyone know their punishment was officially over. Judd was released from his punishment after having to do 75 sit-ups in the BB Living Room.
Spencer and Andy were keeping up the ruse to get McCrae to let down his guard so he wouldn’t fight so hard for the Veto. They were also making sure they were on McCrae’s good side should he win the Veto and then win the next HoH competition so they could then work with him and get further in the game.
This week’s Power of Veto Competition had a special guest host. It was none other than last season’s winner, Ian! In Super Veto, a of the House Guests and Ian were dressed in superhero tights and capes. The players had to put together a puzzle. The trouble was that they only had 20 seconds to keep the the board the pieces were stuck to magnetized. They had to fly, with the help of wire harnesses, between their boards and a button that reset their time to 20 seconds. If a player does not get back to their board within 20 seconds, all of their puzzle pieces would demagnetize, making all of their pieces fall off the board and having the player start from scratch. If the player then didn’t get back to the buzzer to reset the timer within 10 seconds, then they would be eliminated from the game. After many restarts, Judd dropped out of the game to help Andy, while McCrae used his pizza delivery boy powers to serve himself up a much needed win, dodging yet another bullet in the game.
After the Veto Competition, Spencer and GinaMarie were talking in the HoH Room about what was going to happen next. Spencer said Judd was definitely going up on the block because of how he quit the Veto comp to help Andy and no other Exterminator, as well as for his suspicious nature. The two of them.also swore to have each other’s back for the rest of the game. Let’s see how long this pact lasts for!
Judd went to Spencer to talk about Spencer’s next move. Judd felt that he would be the one to be leaving over GinaMarie. Spencer tried to get him to cool down, telling him he was safe, but Judd didn’t believe Spencer. Judd then became nervous, which then made Judd take a hissy-fit, cursing and tossing things all over the House. Judd’s behaviour was not doing him any favours with the rest of the House Guests.
At the Veto Meeting, as expected, McCrae took himself off the block. Spencer then replaced him with Judd. This made Judd do one of the craziest things I’ve ever seen a player do in the BB House. He decided to tell everyone that his one and only target was McCrae, and that he was coming after him. I know, Readers, it seems kind of crazy for Judd to do this, but I get what he was trying to accomplish. His rationale was this: if the House Guests thought Judd was going after Judd, they would vote GinaMarie out so they could still work together to get McCrae out. Where Judd went wrong was how he went about it. You don’t announce it to the House the way Judd did. You go to each person and explain your plan to them, so you don’t lose a vote, like Judd did with McCrae.
At the special (and early) Live Vote and Eviction Meeting, Judd reiterated his intentions of solely going after McCrae, even they were allies at the beginning of the game. Gina Marie reminded the guys that she was loyal, and always tried her best to compete in the game. Once again, Readers, it was a pretty predictable Vote. It was yet another unanimous 2-0 vote to evict Judd. Oh, Judd, it’s your second eviction! At least he saw this one coming, unlike his first one.
During Judd’s exit interview, Julie Chen asked him about why he dissolved his alliance with Elissa, and whether or not it was a mistake. He said he couldn’t take Elissa irrational and indecisive behaviour, so no, he didn’t make a mistake in cutting himself loose from her.
Before or After was the next HoH Competition. Julie Chen gave the players, except for Spencer, a series of events, and they had to decide whether they took place before or after another series of events. Each correct answer gave them a point. The player with the most points after 7 rounds would become the HoH. It was a close one, Readers, as it was a three-way tie between all of the players. It came down to them being asked to figure out how many seconds it took for McCrae to win the PoV. Andy was the closest to this number, making him the HoH!
Wow, Readers, it was a crazy shortened week in the BB House! McCrae saving himself, and then Judd having his huge freak-out and eviction! The next episode will also have an eviction, so we’ll be seeing yet another House Guest leave the House and join the Jury. Who will be the next HoH? Will McCrae dodge yet another bullet and make it into the Final Three? Who will be joining the Jury? Check back into my blog to find out!
Until my next post, Readers!
