Big Brother 15, Episode #7 – Watch Out for the Mom Squad!
This episode of BB 15 was a hum-dinger! Team Elissa is fighting Team Aaryn/the Moving Company for control of the BB. The CEO of the Moving Squad, and Nick, my #1 pick to win this game, joins the Mom Squad on the block. Which side of the House will come out victorious? Read on and you’ll see.
Before I continue, let me show you how the House was split:
Team Elissa Team Aaryn Moving Company Floaters
Elissa Aaryn Nick Jessie
Helen GinaMarie Spencer Judd
Candice Kaitlin Howard
Back to the show, Amanda and Elissa were talking about who would support their cause of evicting Nick this week. They were sure about everyone in their camp, pretty sure of the Floater, but they did not know where Spencer stood on this matter. Andy and Helen were discussing the same thing, saying if Nick doesn’t leave this week, then he just might win this game. They would also have to be ready for the fallout should Nick or his cohorts become HoH next week.
Elissa and Helen were both trying to get to Jessica, as she was seen as the wildcard of the Floaters. They also knew how she felt about Nick. They emphasized this fact, saying if Nick stayed in the House, then she would be the next nominee on the block next week. With Team Elissa, she would stay to at least make the Jury. Helen also made a very good point that if Nick stays this week that the liars would be exposed in the House, so everyone was anxious about the live Vote and Eviction.
The Moving Company were really not feeling the McCrae – Amanda showmance. They still felt she was a powerful player, and too smart to not to try to influence McCrae, and it could break up the group. Nick and Spencer both made their pitches to McCrae to drop Amanda before she gains more power in the House. McCrae felt conflicted between his feelings for Amanda and his alliance. Both McCrae and Amanda didn’t trust Nick, causing McCrae to second guess who he should vote to evict. He also knew that whatever decision he made would be making pick a side in House.
Julie Chen, channeling the ’70s in the right way in a fab green catsuit and big beautiful hair, asked the House Guests if they remembered that they were being watched 24-hours a day by not only the producers, but by many people over the Internet. When asked to respond, Aaryn said she was an open person, and she was aware of the cameras. Okay, Readers! I know that Aaryn is young, but that is no excuse for her behaviour. Like I’ve said before, I believe in free speech, but to carelessly throw around the comments about people in the House the way she has, she’s lucky one has cussed her out! Trust me, I would have been doing the cussing if I were in the House!
In a segment the show aired right after Aaryn spoke about her “openness,” it showed many of the House Guests whom Amanda spoke ill about discussing how her comments made them feel. Candice was hurt because Aaryn apparently said one of her racially charged comments her hurt. Howard felt as thought there was a personal vendetta against him because of these comments. Amanda was also present during this conversation, and decided to warn Aaryn about how Aaryn should choose her words more carefully around the House. Aaryn literally blew off Amanda’s advice, saying that it was obnoxious how these House Guests were upset over these comments when they were, according to Aaryn, throwing around the blonde comments, and she’s not apologizing for her comments. I am so angry over Aaryn’s reaction to Amanda’s warnings, but I do understand her frustrations if these people are throwing around blonde comments about her. I was also none too pleased with Amanda saying she knew that Aaryn was joking about her comments. Aaryn’s comments are not joke, nor were they funny. Two wrongs don’t make a right, but then be the bigger person and acknowledge your mistakes, Aaryn. I don’t think she may have thought that they may be saying what they’re saying in response to your hurtful comments about them.
At the Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony, Elissa thanked her peeps outside the House for their support, and for the House Guests to really think about who they really would like to stay in the House. Nick thanked specific people in the House for certain memories he got from them. Helen didn’t want to say goodbye, but see you later, and to thank them for seeing the Mom Squad as a threat in the House. Once the votes were in, they fell as follows:
Helen – 0; Elissa – 4; and Nick – 7.
Noooooooooo! Not Nick! I really didn’t want to see any of this week’s nominees go home, and Nick was an interesting character. I wanted to see more of him this summer. Bye-Bye, #1 pick! 🙁
It was another deathly quiet House after the Eviction this week, well, except for GinaMarie bawling her eyes out over Nick’s departure. Howard was comforting her, but she just kept right on crying. She really liked Nick. Based on Nick’s final comments, it didn’t seem as though it was much of a blind-side, but I guess if your head is so fall in the sand in this game,like some of the players’ are, it would have really been a shock!
At the HoH Competition, Overnight Deliveries, the House Guests were awoken throughout the night the night before the Eviction by the BB Express. They had to go to the BB Backyard to see various packages pass by them on a conveyor belt. During the Competition, Julie Chen asked a series of true or false questions based on what they observed. After six rounds, and two tie-breaker questions, Helen, part of the Mom Squad, came out victorious, becoming the HoH this week!
Oh, a power shift so early in the game! I love it, especially if it makes Aaryn, Jeremy and Kaitlin quake in their boots. I didn’t think this would happen, but the Mom Squad has been unleashed on the House, and has significant power. Who will the Mom Squad put up for Eviction? Has the Moving Company filed for Chapter 11? Will Aaryn try to go to Helen and try to create that secret alliance Helen was asking for since the beginning of the game? Will the women continue to rule the House? We’ll find all of this out in the next episode!
Until my next post, Readers!
