Big Brother 15, Episode #8 – Turn Around is Fair Play
This was one of the most emotionally charged episodes of the season yet! Yelling, name calling, crying, changes of allegiances, you know, all of the things that make BB so popular to watch. What else happened in the House with Helen as it’s HoH? Continue reading and you’ll see!
Frustration between the House Guests finally came to a boil as Nick was evicted from the game. I mentioned in my last BB 15 post that GinaMarie fell apart, crying hysterically all over the House. All of this happened before the HoH Competition. When she wasn’t wailing over the loss of her one-sided showmance, she was taking a temper tantrum, scream and shouting threats to those who voted Nick out of the game, swearing to exact vengeance on them. The House Guests she was yelling at were in scattered around the House, shaking their heads at what GinaMarie was saying.
After the HoH Competition, Jeremy was miserable because the power has shifted away from his side of the House, and the Moving Company is crumbling. He decided that he had to look out for his own game from this moment on, so he went to speak to Helen in the Have-Not Room (which they did not show off to my recollection), applauding Helen’s game-play, and sucking up to the Mom Squad any way he could.
Aaryn, GinaMarie, and Kaitlin took a different approach to dealing with the power shift. They were upset and worried about Helen taking their HoH Room away from them. They were also wondering which of them would be chosen to nominated to go on the block this week. It was really sad to see the three of them sulking like children because things were not going their way.
Team Aaryn continued began taking their frustration on being on the wrong side of the House on other players. They ganged up on Jessie for changing sides by verbally attacking her while she was in her bed. Aaryn then took a hissy fit and trashed Candice’s bed, tossing the sheets and mattress flying across the room. Judd popped his head into the room to see what was going on, and got yelled at by Team Aaryn. They then continued to attack Jessie, calling her all sort of things because she lied to them about who she was voting out the House. Candice then entered the room to find her bed in shambles, and being attacked by Team Aaryn as well. Both Aaryn and GinaMarie started talking their horrible version of ghetto talk to her to egg Candice on, and Candice was yelling back, trying to defend herself. Way to go, Team Aaryn! Since one of you can’t stand up for yourself, you can only attack people in packs while your “victim” is alone. You’re really justifying why all of you should go up on the block and be evicted!
Thank goodness for Howard! He overheard the verbal cat-fight and stepped in to diffuse the situation. He took Candice out of the room, and talked her down so she wouldn’t go back into the room and continue the fight. He also got Candice to turn the other cheek about Team Aaryn and their delightful comments. Oh, Howard! You’re such a good guy!
Team Aaryn turned their tirade back onto Jessie. Jessie was defending Candice, and the other ladies in the room were trying to tell Jessie that the Mom Squad and their new allies were talking smack about her, but, thankfully, Jessie didn’t believe them and their petty accusations. Jessie had to remind these ladies of the smack they’ve been dishing out all over the House, and that they are victimizing themselves.
Later on, when the House simmered down, GinaMarie was crying, again, on the couch with Aaryn watching her. Candice noticed GinaMarie crying and went over to her to see if she could help GinaMarie get over whatever she was going through. Both GinaMarie and Aaryn saw the great person she was, and apologized for their words and actions. Candice confessed that she accepted their apologies, but she didn’t believe they were being sincere, especially in Aaryn’s case. She said after GinaMarie stopped crying, she would pretend they didn’t exist because she couldn’t trust them.
This week’s Have/Have-Not Competition was a stinky affair. The House was split into three teams:
Blue Red Yellow
Howard Judd Spencer
Kaitlin McCrae Andy
GinaMarie Amanda Elissa
Aaryn Jessie Candice
One person from each team had to stand in a huge bucket of curdling rotten milk and pass this milk by tossing it out of their smaller bucket to another teammate, and they continue this until they can pour it into a huge jar at the end of the line. The last team to finish will be the Have-Nots this week. The Red team finished the competition quickly, cheering their victory. Howard confessed he was trying to throw the Competition by tossing the milk on GinaMarie, and pretending to have trouble getting milk into his bucket. He wanted for his teammates to suffer just that much more this week because of all of the waves they were making in the House. Howard’s plan was done all in vane, though, as McCrae was even worse than Howard was pretending to be in this challenge. Howard’s teammates were still able to fill their jar before the Yellow Team could, making Team Yellow the Have-Nots for the week.
After the competition, Jeremy swallowed his pride and told Helen about the Moving Company, how he blames McCrae for turning on their alliance and on Aaryn. Helen was so elated because Candice’s suspicions were right, and Nick leaving really was the best decision to make. Helen then asked Jeremy if he would care.if Kaitlin went up. He said as long as his butt was safe, he didn’t care whether Kaitlin went up or not. Wow! What happened to all of your chivalry from last week, Jeremy, telling Kaitlin you’d tell her if anyone was after her, and making sure she didn’t go anywhere. All of that huffing and puffing to the Moving Company about keeping Kaitlin safe, practically ruining your alliance last week for nothing! Lovely, just lovely, Jeremy!
Howard also stopped by the HoH Room and had a chat with Helen. When asked about the Moving Company, he denied it. Why? Howard, your alliance is D-E-A-D! Why try to hold on to it? This just made your stock plummet in Helen’s eyes, warning her that she can’t you.
At the HoH Nomination Ceremony, guess which two House Guests were chosen as Nominees? Yeppers! It was Kaitlin and Aaryn! Helen fed them some bull about how they were strong competitors, and how they will get their chance to get off the block by winning the PoV. Helen then confessed she’s after bigger fish, and to wait for her to reveal her plan later on in the week.
I know, so much went on during this episode! It was really something to watch. Team Aaryn really have to stop being babies about their lot in the game, and do something about it. Did they forget that this could happen to them in the game. Who will be this week’s MVP? Who will this person nominate as the third person on the block? Will Team Aaryn continue apologizing to other House Guests over their actions? Who wiol win the PoV? All of these questions will (hopefully) be answered within my next post!
