Big Brother 15, Episode #19: It’s a 2-for-1 Special!
It’s Double Eviction Night! It’s a night on BB 15 when 2 people leave the BB House on the same night, as well as a whole week of competitions (except the Have-Not competition) are played. These nights are so much fun to watch because the House Guests become even more, and if there’s no room for error, either. You can really see where a player’s allegiance lies, too, as there is no real time to plan a strategy, or to try and recover from saying or doing something stupid. It’s do or die time, and, well, someone’s gotta go! Who were the two unlucky characters to get the boot out of the BB House? Continue reading below and find out!
After welcoming the audience to the Double Eviction Night, Julie Chen announced that, from this point on, the House Guests that are evicted from the game will become part of The Jury who selects who will ultimately win BB 15! Yeah, I know, 9 jury members! Usually there are 7, but since this season started so early, I guess the producers figured they’d add 2 more members!
Now, getting to the show itself…Amanda figured she’d better start playing nice in order to save her butt from Eviction. She went to Jessie to “reason” with her about their fight a few days ago. Amanda even said she would support Jessie to the end of the game! Can you smell the desperation Amanda must have been feeling in order to say that to get Jessie to change her mind?
Amanda then spoke to her secret alliance of McCrae, Judd and Andy about trusting each until the end of the game. In the Diary Room, she confessed she didn’t truly trust Judd. To her, he had been acting a bit shady, and this didn’t sit well with her.
Candice, Elissa and Jessie were trying to figure out ways to save Candice from Eviction. They thought the only way to get this done would be to switch the Vote to Amanda. Jessie went to talk to Helen to see if she could use her sway to accomplish this task. Helen said she would need to have all of her allies on board in order to do this.
Jessie then went to her buddy, Judd, and asked if he would vote Amanda out as well. Judd confessed in the Diary Room that if he went along with this plan, it would completely change the outcome of the game.
Helen went to her confidant, Andy with this plan. Oh, Helen, if you only knew how close Andy was to Amanda, and that Andy squeals EVERYTHING e hears around the House to her. Andy confessed in the Diary Room that if he did this, he would lose one of is biggest allies in the game, and that this plan may not be the best one for his game.
Candice was doing everything she could to stay. She went back to Helen to see if there was anything she could to change the Vote. Candice told Helen that the House was crazy to want Amanda to stay because she’ll win if she doesn’t leave soon, and that she knew Helen had enough clout around the House to make things happen. Helen’s weak defense was that Amanda hasn’t done anything against her. Candice warned her it was only a matter of time until Amanda did. Helen confessed in the Diary Room that if Amanda was to leave the House that the next big target would be her.
The show then went back to Julie Chen and the live studio audience. Julie Chen spoke to the House Guests and told them she had good and bad news for them. The good news was that the Jury would begin that night with the next evicted House Guest. The bad news was that it was also a Double Eviction Night, and just because you’re on the Jury doesn’t mean you’re out of the game.
It was then time for the first Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony of the show. Wen it was time for the nominees’ final words, Candice used her time to cuss GinaMarie out, making Julie Chen have to yell at them to stop. Spencer thanked his family and the House Guests for the summer. Amanda greeted her family, and said she was giving the same speech as last week. There is no need to break down the Vote for this Eviction. It was an unanimous decision: Candice was evicted from the BB House, and was the first member of The Jury.
After Julie Chen spoke with Candice, it was time to start off the next week of BB 15 in one night. Summer School was the name of the HoH Competition. It would suck to be the HoH on a Double Eviction Night because you only hold this had position for about 40 minutes, yet you are ineligible to compete in the next HoH Competition. You have no real time to strategize about who to nominate, and you put a large target on your back. In this competition, the players, except GinaMaire, had to answer questions about items and events within the BB House. They had to say whether it was more or less than what Julie Chen asked. After just 4 rounds of play, Aaryn came out as the winner and the HoH!
Aaryn had so many voices in her ear, trying to tell her who she should nominate for Eviction. When it was time for Aaryn to give her nominees for Eviction, Julie Chen told the House that the MVP twist was now over, so from this point on, there would be only two nominees for Eviction each week. The House seemed relieved at this news, since they didn’t know for sure who it was for the last two weeks. Aaryn then told the House that she chose Spencer and Jessie for Eviction.
The show then went to the PoV Competition called Nailed It! The players (Amanda, Judd, Andy, Aaryn , Spencer and Jessie) had to find 6 different sized nails that fit into certain holes on a Veto board. Once they found all of them and hit their buzzer, and they were put into the right holes, they would win the PoV. If the nails were in the wrong holes and they used the buzzer, they would be eliminated from the competition. It didn’t take Aaryn too long to complete this game, winning the PoV, holding all of the power to decide who stays or goes on the block.
Before the PoV Ceremony, Aaryn was pulled aside by Helen, giving her more advise. Yeah, Helen, you really don’t have any clout around the House. The cameras also showed Amanda and McCrae holding each other and crying. Was one of them going to be back-doored? Aaryn put my suspicions to rest by revealing what she was going to do with the Power of Veto. She vetoed Jessie’s nomination, and replaced her with Judd! She told him if she didn’t do this, she would be evicted next week. How gracious of you, Aaryn! You can never take any responsibility for your own actions in the House, can you? Judd? He was a pal of hers, as well as the rest of the House.
It was quickly time for the second Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony of the night. Spencer thanked the House Guests, again, for the summer, and that he wanted to stay and play. Judd told the House he loved all of them, and pleaded with them to keep him in the game. He also said what was being said about him was wrong, and to change their minds about their vote. It was another unanimous decision. Judd was sent packing out of the BB House. It was the first time this season I saw just about the whole House sad about someone leaving the game. I say just about because Helen and Elissa were the only ones for really upset, and Judd didn’t want them to hug him. Whoa, that’s huge, since Judd was such a nice guy. I liked him, he was so real with the House Guests.
Well, Readers, this wraps up Double Eviction Night! It was a crazy one, though. I loved the Candice-GinaMarie verbal cat-fight! I can’t wait for Gina-Marie to leave the House. The best part about Double Eviction Nights is that , unless it’s apparent who the power players are, you never know for sure who will be the second person evicted. Tonight was one of these nights. Judd’s quick dismissal from the House left me with a lot of unanswered questions. Why would Helen go after Judd? What will happen to the House now that Judd’s gone? Will new battle lines be drawn because Judd is gone? We’ll find all of this out when you return to my blog for the next BB 15 episode wrap-up!
Until my next post, Readers!
