Big Brother 15, Episode #21 – Helen, You’d Better Watch Your Back!
I really wish the House Guests that aren’t n power would finally band together and take over the House like they should of weeks ago when Howard suggested it. They are rolling over and letting Amanda and Helen run everything. Sure, girl power is great and everything, but to just let them call all the shots like they are is so sad to watch. Now it just feels as though it is a waiting game to see who will pick who off first. By the look of things, it looks as though Amanda will strike first, as a trap seems as though it is being set for Helen to fall for, and she’s unaware of it! How did Helen get to this point in the game without knowing it? Read on and you’ll see!
After the Nomination Ceremony, Andy confessed in the Diary Room that Jessie was his (or Amanda’s) target this week because she was trying to go after Amanda for the past few weeks, and that Spencer was the pawn. Helen thought Andy was playing it too safe with his nominations, and needed to focus on splitting up Amanda and McCrae. To make Jessie feel more at ease on the block, Andy lied to Jessie, telling her not to worry, as she is only the pawn, and that Spencer was the one leaving. How many times have we heard that line in the House, yet Spencer hasn’t left yet? Quite a few times, let me tell you. Andy felt he has to blind-side Jessie to have her go out the door without too much blood on his hands.
Aaryn and Amanda both agreed that Jessie has to go. McCrae and Andy joined the ladies discussion, agreeing to the Jessie plan, along with solidifying their Final Four deal. Aaryn admitted in the Diary Room that this deal was better than the one she had with Helen. Amanda and McCrae were pretending to fight over who was the mastermind of their alliance, but in private, McCrae admitted it was Amanda. Amanda named their alliance 3 AM (Amanda, Aaryn, Andy McCrae).
Helen spoke with her “confidant” Andy about his nominations. She told him his nominations were too safe. In the Diary Room, Helen confessed she can no longer trust Andy because something didn’t seem right with Andy anymore, and she was starting to feel paranoid about being back-doored. Andy confessed in the Diary Room that he would be in trouble if Helen got wind of his true allegiance to Amanda.
The Mom Squad (Helen and Elissa) were trying to piece together what was happening in the House with Andy’s nominations. Elissa was starting to smell the rat that Andy, one of my picks to win this game, was becoming to Helen. Helen was also smelling the stench Andy was letting off. This led Helen to believe she may have to go after Amanda earlier than she expected.
Just as Helen thought, Andy ran to Amanda after his talk with Helen and betrayed Helen, telling Amanda about Helen’s thoughts of going after Amanda. Andy was wondering whether he did the right thing about outing Helen to Amanda in the Diary Room. Amanda came up with a plan to get Helen into a fake alliance with Helen, making a Final Five deal, to gain her trust. Amanda would then dispose of Helen sooner than later.
McCrae, when he was aware of the plan, started to set the trap in motion by pitching the plan to Helen. He did this so he would try to go after two of his alliance member at one time by putting them on the block. Lying to Helen, McCrae told Helen he didn’t want to take Amanda to the end because she would beat him in front of The Jury. He made also made her a Final Three deal since the two of them had a similar style of game-play, as he would want to have Helen at the end with him. Helen, looking for any way to get of Amanda, fell for the deal, hook, line and sinker. Helen! Why would McCrae do this to his fiancée? Think, think, think! Wat about the Mom Squad? I guess the idea of Amanda out of the game was too much to resist for Helen to see things straight.
At the PoV Players’ Meeting, all of the players for this week’s competition were chosen. They were the HoH (Andy), the Nominees (Jessie and Spencer), and Helen, Amanda and Elissa’s names were picked out of a box given to Andy by the producers in the Diary Room. Andy chose McCrae as this week’s host of the competition.
Helen and McCrae were talking about their “secret alliance.” Andy was let in on the details of the plan, and he pretended to be surprised about what was happening, and he was on board for this plan to move forward. Helen! The alarm bells should have been going off, again with Andy being on board with this plan. Were you not just talking to Elissa about how Andy may be trying to play you and be loyal to Amanda? Andy admitted in the Diary Room that he was worried Helen putting the pieces together, blowing his game to bits! Amanda then came into the room they were talking in, and they changed the subject of their conversation.
This group started talking about how to guarantee Jessie’s eviction from the BB House. They figured they were due a competition where they had to guess the correct number of items in a container using a smaller sample as a reference. They decided they would have Helen win the PoV and not use it on anyone. They then went to Spencer with the plan and he told them he was o board with the plan. In the Diary Room he confessed he was totally against the plan, saying he wanted the PoV to make sure his butt was off the block this week so he could compete for the HoH.
BB B Movie was the name of the PoV Competition this week. Just as Amanda and crew had expected, the players had to look at certain items from the BB 15 fake movie, Blood, Bolts and Bandages, to see what a certain number of items looked like in order to predict the number of a larger group of the same item was. If a player was the closest with their prediction in each round, without folding, they received a movie ticket. The player furthest away from the actual number of items would be eliminated. The player with three tickets, or the most tickets, by the end of the sixth round would win the Veto. Spencer almost ruined the plan by eliminating Helen from the competition. Andy saved the day, ultimately beating everyone else out, winning the PoV for himself. Surprisingly, Jessie was oblivious to the plan throughout the whole competition. It was really obvious what the other House Guests were doing. Ignorance is bliss, I guess!
Team Get Rid of Jessie was enraged with Spencer. They felt they now had to watch both nominated House Guests very carefully to see who they wanted out of the House more. Jessie was easy to read and was easily manipulated, but was a whole heap of trouble. Spencer was a harder cookie to crack, yet he couldn’t be trusted. Oh, decisions, decisions!
Jessie, coming to her senses a bit, realized the position she was in and went to Andy to suggest using the PoV on her. She pitched an idea about making a big move in the game right now by going after a bigger fish than herself. She tried to reassure him by saying he would have her support, and that she could drum up the support he needed from other members of the House. Andy, placating er, said he would think about what she told him.
Helen found it hard to talk to McCrae in private since Amanda pretty much has him in lock-down mode (at her side) most of the time. McCrae was beginning to get worried their plan was about to go boom when Helen suggested they try to get rid Amanda sooner than the Final Four. McCrae went to Amanda and told her what happened. Amanda was now itching to get rid of Helen sooner than later.
3 AM was comparing notes about who was saying what in the House in the HoH Room. They got onto the topic of Helen and her interest in having Amanda out of the House. Amanda wanted to take the first opportunity to get rid of her. Andy felt conflicted as to whether he should keep the nominations the same, or to continue to do Amanda’s dirty work and put Helen up on the block.
At the Power of Veto Ceremony, when Andy asked the Nominee why he should use the Veto on them, some interesting things were said. Jessie went the traditional route, saying she would love for Andy to use the PoV on her, but she would respect his wishes. Spencer, on the other hand, said Andy hasn’t done anything intelligent all week, so why should he start now? Whoa, Spencer! I know you’re frustrated with being on the block having no power in the game, but don’t throw in the towel yet! There’s still a lot more time for anything to happen in this game, so don’t screw it for yourself. After Spencer’s shocking statement, Andy announced he would not be using the PoV, keeping the nominations the same for the Live Vote and Eviction.
I really wish Helen would take a step back and realize what was going on in the House. If someone is acting shady in the House, they probably were, and Andy is all kinds of shady where she is concerned. I just don’t get why she is not able to fully realize this. Maybe she thinks Andy wouldn’t do her wrong. If Helen believes that Andy wouldn’t do her wrong, I should take back the kudos I gave her in my last post! Never ever fully trust anyone in this game! Will Helen continue to fall for McCrae and Andy’s rouse? Who will be evicted from the game? Who will be the next HoH in the House? Come back to my blog and find out!
Until my next post, Readers!
