Big Brother 15, Episode # 18 – Boy, Have the Tables Turned!
It was another crazy episode of BB 15! So much drama, verbal cat fights, and the luck of some House Guests changed in the blink of an eye. As well, a relationship looked as though it was ready to crumble before our eyes! Oh, and there was a PoV Competition, too. What happened to who, and where is this all going, you ask? Read on and it’ll begin to make sense!
After the Nomination Ceremony, Amanda, Judd, McCrae and Andy were in one of the BB Rooms discussing who could potentially be the MVP. Yes, Amanda was still on this from last week since she was put up by America, yet none of the House Guests have stepped up and claimed responsibility for this choice. She was pulling a “Jessie” (whining, complaining like a child) about being the third nominee last week, and worrying about the same thing happening this week. She didn’t understand why America would pick her if this was indeed true. She asked, “What did I do wrong?” Oh, Amanda! When you see what you did wrong, you’ll understand.
Amanda then found her way to the HoH Room only to find Jessie sitting next to her McCrae. The Green-Eyed Monster came out of Amanda, and she all but demanded McCrae to sit by her, as if he was her possession and he was expected to jump when she wanted him to. McCrae stood his ground (good for you, McCrae!), and stayed where he was. Amanda got so mad, she got up and stormed out of the room in a big huff.
At bedtime, Amanda gave McCrae the cold shoulder for his actions. McCrae asked why she was treating him this way. Amanda told him she was not going to be competing for his attention. McCrae said he was not having any of this nonsense. The next day, Amanda was showering, and McCrae asked if she was still mad at her. She said she was. He told her she was wrong for being so mad at him. While McCrae was in deep thought, Amanda was badgering him about their relationship, and got even more upset when he wasn’t responding to her questions. McCrae then confessed in the Diary Room that he was beginning to think about exiting this relationship because it reminded him of ones he had had in the past. He also had to think about what this would do to his game-play. If they split, he felt Amanda would target him and get him out of the House.
At the MVP Nomination and Veto Players Meeting, America’s pick for the third nominee was revealed. Yay!!!! It was Amanda, again! Good work, America! Maybe this enrage Amanda even more and will throw off her game during the Veto Competition. The last two players this week were Spencer and Judd. GinaMarie chose Aaryn as this week’s host.
After the Meeting, Amanda had a new idea about who the MVP was in the House. She was beginning to think it was Judd! Really! Well, her reasoning was that she felt Judd was acting weird and shady. She didn’t even trust him when he went up to her and told her he was going to pretend to fight for Jessie and really win the Veto for her.
GinaMarie and Aaryn thought that the MVP was stupid for putting Amanda up. They felt that Amanda was in good hands. Amanda joined the ladies in the HoH Room. Amanda asked GinaMarie if she would use the Veto on her if she won. Aaryn got so upset at Amanda’s question that she stormed out of the room. A lot of people are doing that this season. Anyway, Aaryn confessed that Amanda was being selfish for asking this of GinaMarie. Aaryn was afraid of being put up as a replacement nominee if Jessie or Spencer win the PoV. Why would you think this, Aaryn? GinaMarie is your girl! Why would she put you up?
McCrae, doing damage control for Amanda, told GinaMarie in the HoH Room to keep the nominations the same if she won the PoV. He felt that Amanda wouldn’t be leaving this week. Amanda joined the conversation, saying she must find out who the MVP was to figure out why she was chosen as the third nominee. I know, she’s beginning to sound like a broken record.
McCrae told Amanda when they were alone to chill out because she was freaking everyone out and annoying them. Amanda took offense to McCrae’s “harsh” words, saying he wasn’t helping her. McCrae told her she was ruffling too many feathers around the House. With Judd in the room, McCrae told Amanda she also had to think about GinaMarie’s situation in the game right now, and GinaMarie was looking out of Aaryn. Amanda told McCrae to stop worrying about Aaryn and start thinking about her and her situation. If McCrae could last through all of this, he and Amanda really can get through anything and have a good life together. McCrae, you’re a good man to still be with Amanda right now in the game. Hopefully, McCrae is not using her as a shield so the target on his back isn’t as big as Amanda’s.
Frog Darts was the name of this week’s Veto Competition. In each round, the contestants had to toss a frog onto a lily pad with the highest number possible. The player with the lowest score in each round was eliminated. They then ad to pick a prize. The most recent eliminated player had the option of trading their prize for one another previously eliminated player held. The player that held the Veto at the end of the game won the Power of Veto. This is how the competition played out:
1st eliminated: GinaMarie – got the Veto
2nd eliminated: Amanda – got The Cone of Shame. For this punishment, the recipient has to wear a cone that dogs have to wear to prevent them from biting themselves. The winner of this item has to wear it 48 hours. Amanda traded with GinaMarie for the Veto.
At this point in the competition, Candice was telling Judd about how Amanda and Aaryn thought he was shady. This started a verbal cat fight between the two ladies.
3rd eliminated: Candice – got a trip to the Bahamas. Candice traded with Amanda for the Veto.
The verbal war of words continued between Amanda and Candice. Candice wanted Amanda to stop talking trash about her. In the Diary Room, McCrae wished Amanda would shut up and stop the blow-ups because the target was growing ever bigger on bot of their backs.
4th eliminated: Spencer – 50 Shades of Orange. This punishment made its recipient have to enjoy getting a spray tan in the BB Backyard every time a bell sounded for 24 hours. Spencer traded this punishment with a delighted Amanda for the trip to the Bahamas.
5th eliminated: Jessie – $5 000. She traded this prize with Candice for the Veto.
Winner of competition: Judd – Won the punishment of the Clownatard, The recipient had to wear the Clownatard for 48 hours. Judd traded with Candice for $5 000, and Jessie becomes the permanent winner of the Veto.
Even after the competition was over, Amanda just won’t stop arguing with Candice! Amanda’s behaviour was beginning to really bother the other House Guests. Helen said that Amanda was rubbing people the wrong way with all of her out-bursts and her attitude. Candice was happy everyone was seeing this side of Amanda. She was hoping the House Guests saw Amanda for who she was, and that this influenced how they voted.
Back in the House, McCrae and Amanda were talking about her need to chill out. Amanda didn’t understand why everyone was getting so upset with her. McCrae just advised her to try and keep her mouth shut so she didn’t come off as looking stupid.
Aaryn saw that Candice was looking too calm and comfortable after what happened. Aaryn was watching as Candice and Elissa were in the BB Kitchen laughing and having fun. Aaryn didn’t like this and wanted to keep Candice on the path to Eviction. Candice, on the other hand, wanted to keep this momentum going by being happy and really “owning” the Clownatard instead of making it seem as though the punishment was a real punishment.
While Amanda, Candice and GinaMarie are all having fun with their punishments, Helen was taking this time to go to work and make deals with GinaMarie to ensure Elissa’s safety so Elissa doesn’t become the replacement nominee for Jessie. Aaryn wants Elissa’s butt up on the block because of the bad blood between them.
At the Veto Meeting, as predicted, Jessie removed herself from the block. This forces GinaMarie to replace Jessie with another House Guest. The lucky House Guest was Spencer!
Yes, Readers, it was one hell of an episode to watch! Jessie thought she was on the outs, while Amanda thought she was sitting pretty. Yeah, the tables have definitely turned around for these ladies quickly. Amanda really has to calm down, and learn how to pick er battles now. Who knows what will happen to her down the line in the BB House. Who will be the House Guests to be evicted from the BB House? Who will be the next HoH to rule the roost? Don’t forget that the next episode will be a Double Eviction Night! I love these nights on the show. Find out what happened by popping back in to my blog!
Until my next post, Readers!
