Big Brother 15, Episode #28: Julie Chen Saw Through the Smokescreen
It’s another Eviction Night episode on BB 15. This eviction will permanently break the 3 AM alliance apart. Either way, a very strategic player will be leaving the House. As well, a new alliance was formed to rid the House of Amanda and McCrae. The best part of this episode was Julie Chen. She saw through a smokescreen of fake comments, and she made sure it didn’t slide through the cracks of one of her interviews during the show. How did everything play out? Read below and you’ll see!
Amanda was still on her mission to taunt and humiliate Elissa at any chance she could around the House. The House Guests were getting pretty sick and tired of Amanda’s antics. Spencer finally broke the House’s silence about Amanda’s behaviour. He asked Amanda to stop bothering Elissa, telling her she was acting like a bully. Amanda answered back by saying she was not bullying Elissa, and that Elissa deserved everything she was dishing at her. Andy confessed Amanda’s constant outbreaks were not helping his game since the House knew he was aligned with her.
In the BB Backyard Spencer, Andy, GinaMarie, and Judd were discussing the Amanda and McCrae situation. With Spencer leading their pow-wow, they decided that this showmance had to leave the House, or else the two of them would be in the Final Two. They also agreed to create an alliance to rid the House of this showmance. Since they were getting rid of he last showmance in the House, they named their alliance The Exterminators.
Aaryn, worried about her chances of staying in the House after this week, went to talk to Amanda to see where her loyalty lies within their alliance. I guess Aaryn figured Amanda would have sided with hr since it was Aaryn did all of Amanda’s dirty work for her she may have assumed Amanda would throw her a bone and try to keep her around longer…no such luck. Amanda let Aaryn know that she and McCrae were giving their votes for Andy to stay. Amanda confessed in the Diary Room that she and McCrae were going to support Andy over Aaryn because Amanda was able to trust Andy more than she could Aaryn. Aaryn started crying because because she felt as though now no one had her back in the House.
Aaryn began her to campaign for votes with some of the other House Guests. She was trying to persuade Spencer and Judd to vote for her, but they didn’t give it to her. Since they couldn’t reveal they were apart of The Exterminators, they told her she would think about saving her.
Aaryn decided to go back to Amanda and McCrae to try and change their mind about their votes. Aaryn thought by throwing Andy under the bus that it would change their minds. Aaryn told Amanda and McCrae Andy was in cahoots with Spencer and Judd to get rid of them (Aaryn was only guessing this. She was unaware that Andy actually was part of The Exterminators). Amanda, wanting to get to the bottom of any plan against her, called Spencer over and asked him if what Aaryn said was true. Spencer went on the defensive, and became angry at Aaryn for throwing his name into something he wasn’t a part of. After arguing with Aaryn, Spencer went away in a huff, making Aaryn’s story more believable to Amanda. Amanda and McCrae began to throw around with the idea of keeping Aaryn instead of Andy.
At the Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony, when given the chance to try and save themselves, Aaryn said she missed her family and friends, and that she enjoyed her time in the BB House. Andy said he hoped he wasn’t going to be evicted, and that he loved Anderson Cooper. It was another unanimous Vote…Aaryn was finally evicted from the BB House!!! We did a happy dance as we watched her go through the front door.
As many of you have noticed, I don’t talk about Julie Chen’s exit interviews with the House Guests. Due to how awesome this episode’s interview with Aaryn was, I really had to share it with you! After Julie Chen sat Aaryn down to talk Julie Chen proceeded to ask her about the unfavourable comments she made about some of her fellow House Guests. Aaryn’s response was that she was from the South, and that everyone where she was from talks and jokes around like that, and that she didn’t mean to disrespect anyone or hurt their feelings. Quite a different line than the one she gave earlier in the season to Team Aaryn while she was in power. Julie Chen saw through Aaryn’s lines of BS, and read aloud certain racial and homophobic comments she said about Helen, Candice and Andy. Aaryn tried to explain she wasn’t trying to be mean about what she said, making her seem worse to anyone watching. At my place, we were all yelling at the TV at Aaryn’s attempts to make Julie Chen and the viewers at home understand what she meant by her comments. We were also so happy that Julie Chen didn’t let Aaryn’s explanation slide by so easily. We were so proud of her. We cheered Julie Chen on throughout the whole segment. Way to go, Julie Chen!
After all of the excitement, Julie Chen announced it was time for the HoH Competition. This week’s game.was.called Big Hoppertunity.. Each of the House Guests had to pick up an egg from behind a fence to chicken wire, wind it through an HoH path on the fence, then hop it over to their colour-coded egg cartons. The player who filled their carton with unbroken eggs first would be the new HoH. Julie Chen also announced a twist in the game. She told the House Guests that the three players who had the least amount of eggs in their cartons by the end of the competition would be punished by having to wear a chicken costume for 48 hours. Unfortunately, Readers, the Comp had barely begun by the time the show ended. It will continue into the next BB episode.
Ah, sweet relief, Readers! Aaryn is finally out of the House! She should have left many weeks ago. After everything she has done this season to other people, I don’t believe she deserved to win the $500 000 prize. Now Amanda needs to leave the House. She’s way to unstable to stay in the House. Hopefully, The Exterminators will stick to their plan and get her out. Who will win this week’s HoH Competition? Are Amanda and McCrae be safe this week, or does Elissa have a lot more than Amanda’s wrath to worry about? Come back to my blog to see how everything plays out!
Until my next post, Readers!
