Big Brother 15, Episode #12 – How Assumptions Become Truth in the BB House!
This episode of BB 15 was an interesting one! Suspicions are whispered behind closed doors, alliances begin to crumble, new ones are created, and out of all of this, the stage is set for this week’s Eviction. America even assisted in making the events of this episode fall as they did with the decisions it made for the final nominee for Eviction. Who did America choose? How does it play into how the House flipped on its head? Continue reading and find out!
At the Nomination Ceremony at the end of Episode #10, Judd made a comment about Aayrn which Aaryn felt made her shady. No, Aaryn, you have done this all on your own! Don’t fault Judd for your smart actions in the House! Aaryn went to speak to Judd about what he said about her and about being put up on te block. Judd calmed er down, saying he was planning to back-door someone else, and that she wasn’t his target. Judd confessed he was saying anything to shut Aaryn up and make her happy.
Kaitlin and Amanda were also talking about the nominations. Kaitlin was worried about Aaryn winning the PoV and taking herself of the block, leaving Kaitlin stuck there and possibly leaving this week. She also asked Amanda if she was the target. Amanda told her it wasn’t her. Aaaryn then enters the room, still whining about possibly leaving this week. Amanda tell them she’s on a mission to get Howard back-doored this week.
Elissa started tripping (not falling, but going batty) around the House because she would have heard by now whether she was chosen as the MVP by now. Her attitude and paranoia was rubbing the other House Guests the wrong way. Elissa was worried that since she hadn’t heard anything yet, this must then mean another member of the House was chosen, and she could find herself as the third nominee on the block.
In the BB Backyard, Howard and Spencer were cooking up a coup d’etat while playing pool. They knew that Elissa and Amanda were running the show around the House. They figured that if they got the Floaters together, along with GinaMarie, that they could take control of the House away from the ladies. In the HoH Room, their plan seemed to magically fall into place, when all the people they wanted to talk to about this new alliance came into the room (GinaMarie, Andy, Judd, Kaitlin). After feeding these people lines about rising up against the oppression Elissa and Amanda were imposing upon them, they all agreed to get rid of them together.
At the Veto Players Selection Meeting, Elissa’s worst fears came to fruition: she was not selected as this week’s MVP, and she was put up on the block! Yes, America voted for Elissa to sit next to Aaryn and Kaitlin! Maybe it was because they knew she probably had the best chance at beating Kaitlin and Aaryn for the PoV. The other two players chosen for the Veto Competition were Helen and McCrae. Even thoug Elissa is on the block, the players for the Veto could really work in Elissa’s favour. The only two players that really don’t want Elissa off the block are Aaryn and Kaitlin. McCrae would be the wild card, as Amanda is a bit annoyed with Elissa’s behaviour up until now. If Elissa really pushed Judd, he probably would Veto the MVP’s nominee and take Elissa down. Helen would fight tooth and nail to get her fellow Mom Squad member off the block. Oh, I can’t forget to say that Elissa isn’t too bad at competitions, either. Don’t sweat it, Elissa, you have more than a fighting chance at getting off the block! Tis week’s host, chosen by Judd, was Andy.
After the meeting, Elissa confessed she felt betrayed by whoever the MVP was. She thought she was nice to everyone in the House, and she didn’t understand why America didn’t choose her this week. She was also didn’t know why she was picked to be on the block. She was beginning to think the MVP was someone of Team Aaryn. Elissa even asked them if one of them was the MVP, and they honestly said no, they were not the MVP. Their response didn’t satisfy Elissa’s suspicions of Team Aaryn, further fueling her anger toward Aaryn.
Team Aaryn were thinking in the total opposite direction. They all thought Elissa was the MVP, and nominated herself in order to make the target on her back smaller. It’s not a bad idea, but Elissa being such a big target in this House, as well as being on the block before wouldn’t make Elissa want to put herself in this position voluntarily. There is too much of a risk of not winning the Veto and being sent home at this point in the game for Elissa to do this, but this is Team Aaryn we’re talking about, Readers! In my opinion, they’re not really seeing the full picture where the game is concerned. They only rely on Aaryn’s point of view, and what they hear second-hand. It’s a wonder they’re still shocked tow of the three of them are on the block right now.
At the Veto Competition called Veto Election, the players were asked to dress to impress. As they walked ou to the BB Backyard, they saw why they were all so snazzy. For this Competition, they had to crawl under benches through a huge pile of mud to collect envelopes that held ballots with various numbers of votes. Some of these votes also had punishments on them. The players could only have four ballots to accumulate as votes as possible to win the PoV. The votes with punishments, if the players chose to use the votes with punishments on them had to do them, regardless of whether or not they win the PoV. After a lot mud slinging (I guess this little joke was not lost on the producers of BB 15), Elissa won the PoV. Here are the punishments each player has to endure due to the points they chose to use:
Helen – 8 PM curfew two nights in a row
Judd – 24-hour solitary confinment
McCrae – $5000
Elissa – Can’t play in the next Veto Competition.
While Judd was having fun by himself in a room where he nothing but to eat but slop, and an alarm clock that went off every nine minutes for 24 hours, the rest of the House decided to throw McCrae a 24th birthday party he wouldn’t forget. Amanda made this party unforgettable by dressing up in a one-piece bathing suit and heels, and giving McCrae his birthday beats with a leather whip. Now, unless the producers provided the whip for this impromptu fiesta, who would bring a whip into the House as something they needed in their luggage?
Elissa, in some strange mood, decided to badger Amanda about her wardrobe choice, from when she put it on, until the party was over. Why would you do that, Elissa? What would possess you to share your feelings about Amanda’s choice of attire? These thoughts should have been kept to yourself! This could seriously come back to haunt you, Elissa!
At the Power of Veto Ceremony, Elissa took so much pleasure in taking herself off the block leaving Aaryn and Kaitlin on it. The House Guests then found out who America secretly chose as their replacement nominee. A smile broke out across my face when I saw GinaMarie’s picture pop up on the BB TV screen! GinaMarie, along with the rest of the House, was in shock! If Elissa was the MVP’s first pick, why would GinaMarie be their second one? This further fueled the idea that Elissa was indeed the MVP, while Elissa was just as baffled as everyone else!
Oh, Readers, this was such a great ending to a BB 15 episode! Everyone is still questioning who the MVP was and Team Aaryn are all on the block! Having any one of them out of the House would make me happy, but the possibility of having Aaryn out of the game is so great! No more sense of entitlement and no more sneaky, snide two-faced comments! But I’m celebrating too early. The votes haven’t been cast yet. This vote should be a no-brainer, though. Will my thoughts come to fruition and Aaryn actually does leave the House? Who will become the next HoH and MVP? Come on back to my blog and find out!
Until my next post, Readers!
