Big Brother 15, Episode #29: Surprise!
Hi There, Readers!
With Aaryn gone, there was more of a chance for everyone else to win the HoH spot this week. After the winner was crowned, it was a game of cover up to hide the names of this week’s nominees. Let’s just say when one of the nominees figured out they were going up on the block, they were so shocked that their jaw dropped wide open. Oh, the BB 15 producers had a very nice surprise for the House Guests, but only one of them got to enjoy it. Who were the big winners and losers during this episode of BB 15? Read below and you’ll see!
Big Hoppertunity was in full swing at the beginning of this episode. While the competition played out, the House Guests shared their feelings about their safety in the House this week. Amanda was worried about not winning the HoH because if they didn’t win it, one or both of them would most likely go up on the block. Elissa was worried because, since she was the out-going HoH, she wasn’t able to play this competition, so she was a sitting duck should anyone want to target her for Eviction. Andy felt this was one of the most important HoHs for him to win because he wanted to make sure The Exterminators got rid of Amanda this week. GinaMarie was sad her BFF, Aaryn was gone, but she must try to win this HoH to get rid of Amanda because of she and McCrae didn’t try to save Aaryn instead of voting her out. After a lot of hopping and egg breakage, GinaMarie hopped her way into the HoH crown this week. There was also a punishment for the two players who had the lowest egg count in their baskets at the end of the competition. These two lucky people had to wear a chicken costume for 48 hours. Spencer and Judd were these lucky people.
Since Amanda never knew where GinaMarie’s loyalty lie in this game, she decided to aggressively push GinaMarie to follow her agenda, as others had in the past, and get Elissa up on the block. Amanda’s angle was that Elissa was solely to blame for Aaryn’s eviction. Amanda went to GinaMarie with her thoughts, but GinaMarie confessed that she wasn’t the stupid person Amanda thought she was, and she wasn’t going to be doing Amanda’s dirty work like Aaryn did. GinaMarie was going to play her own game.
While most of The Exterminators were celebrating GinaMarie’s victory, Spencer was laying down the ground work so this week’s nominees wouldn’t think they would be considered. I’m talking about Amanda and McCrae. Yippee! Finally, someone was stepping up and getting both of the m on the block at the same time. He was telling them that he was worried that GinaMarie would probably put him up because she didn’t trust him. Amanda, not leaving anything to chance, said she was going to be all over GinaMarie to make sure both she and McCrae weren’t on the block this week.
It was time for Spencer and Judd to pay the piper. They were called into the Diary Room, and then came back out to show everyone their new duds for the next two days: their chicken suits! Both guys took their punishment in stride, both laughing and dancing around the BB Living Room. GinaMarie loved their wuits so much, that she called Spencer “Deep Fried Chicken, and Judd got the name “Chicken Nugget”
Amanda was true to her word. She was all over GinaMarie about who she should nominate for Eviction. She asked if GinaMarie had any ideas for Eviction. GinaMarie lied, telling her she didn’t, and that it could be anyone in the House. Amanda, in her most non-threatening tone, said that she was just asking GinaMarie not to put up her or McCrae, and to put up Elissa. Amanda said it wouldn’t matter how the other nominee was, because the whole House wanted Elissa out.
Elissa was sharing her feelings about her dislike for Amanda with Spencer and Andy, when, magically, Amanda came out of nowhere to ear all of Elissa’s comments about her. Amanda decided to sit down with them and paint her nails while she started another argument with Elissa. It got to the point where Andy couldn’t take anymore of their drama, and left the room. Elissa followed Andy, sick and tired of Amanda berating her. Spencer spoke to Amanda and McCrae. Spencer warned Amanda she has to stop attacking Elissa. Amanda said she couldn’t stop because Elissa was pushing her buttons too much. When Spencer left, McCrae gave her the same advice. He also advised her to take the high road from now on where Elissa was concerned, and to let the House see Elissa as the instigator of the arguments. McCrae also wanted Amanda to try to make nice with Elissa, so the House can see she was trying to turn over a new leaf, making the target on their backs smaller. Elissa was getting this same advice from Andy in the BB Backyard.
Amanda, halfheartedly, went to Elissa to apologize for her behaviour over the past few days. Wait a minute! Didn’t they tell Julie Chen they had apologized to each other already before the Live Vote and Eviction Ceremony? I see that was either a lie, or both ladies just couldn’t leave well enough alone. Elissa, seeing through Amanda’s apology, just shook her head and walked away. Amanda was furious! She was so furious, she went around the House, telling everyone that she tried apologizing to Elissa, but Elissa walked away from her, trying to drum up some sympathy from the rest of the House.
Amanda continued her “I’m Really Good” campaign by trying to sway Judd and Spencer while they were soaking up some sun “roasting” in the BB Backyard. Amanda turned on the waterworks, crying about being the “bad guy” in the situation, and how sad it was making her. She was just wasting her crocodile tears on them, as Judd said he didn’t believe a word of what Amanda was saying. GinaMarie joined the group, and she wasn’t buy what Amanda was trying to sell, either.
I guess the House was asked to go into the HoH Room while the BB producers literally filled the House with balloons of all sizes! It’s Luxury Prize time! The House Guests were advised by a card left on a table that one of them would be able to win $10 000 if they found a chip with a “1,” a chip wit a “0,” and a chip with a “K” on it hidden within the balloons all over the House. The first person to find these three chips and ring the bell on another table won the cash prize. After a furious hunt for the three chips, Spencer was the first to find all three chips and ring the bell, winning $10 000. He said he was the “cluckiest” man in the world.
GinaMarie was trying to avoid talking to Amanda as much as she could. It got to the point where GinaMarie pretended to be busy talking to Judd so she could not speak to her. About two minutes later, Amanda interrupted GinaMaire again, determined to talk to GinaMarie. Once Judd left, Amanda started her pitch to get rid of Elissa, again, and to also put Judd up with her. Amanda’s reasoning for these picks was that they would guarantee that GinaMarie would have less targets on her back if she took Amanda’s advice. Amanda also added that she had been influential in choosing the nominees as of late, so she should know what she was talking about. As McCrae joined their conversation, Amanda tried to sweeten the pot by lightly mentioning a Final Three deal with McCrae and herself. GinaMarie just nodded her head as if this sounded like a great idea. Amanda, satisfied with their talk, left McCrae to finish talking to GinaMarie, and left the room.The rest of the House helped Amanda feel as though she was safe by telling her she was safe, and it was them who had something to worry about.
At the Nomination Ceremony, Amanda’s blanket of security was rudely ripped off of her and McCrae when their keys were the only two that didn’t come out of the Nomination Box. Boy, was Amanda shocked! Her jaw was on the floor, and she was speechless (for once)! McCrae just looked lost ad confused. GinaMarie told MCrae he was nominated because she wanted to see the light come back on in his eyes like they were during the first HoH Comp. GinaMarie told Amanda she was on the block because she was crazy, but she loved Amanda. While Elissa and the remainder of safe House Guests were elated to see Amanda’s expression when she found out she and McCrae were on the block, Amanda was still in shock. She didn’t understand, after all of the browbeating she did to GinaMarie, that she and McCrae were both on the block. McCrae was crying in the Diary Room, realizing their time together in the BB House was going to end shortly with one of them leaving this week. GinaMarie said Amanda could cry all she wants, and that Amanda’s bullying tactics weren’t going to work on her.
Oh, Readers! It was good to see Amanda get put in her place. I don’t think she’s going to take any of this lying down, though. I can see Amanda trying to go full force to get everyone to keep her over McCrae because she did all of the heavy lifting in their alliance. Oh, her one Veto victory will erase all of the strong-arming, the taunting and the threats she dished out to the House over the past few weeks and make all the House Guests want her to stay over McCrae. If my thoughts are indeed true, Amanda had better wake up, because she will be on her way out the BB front doors if she doesn’t win the Veto this week. Who will win the PoV this week? Will any of them sacrifice themselves in the name of love to save the other? Will Amanda cool her jets and continue her nice act to smooth things over with the other House Guests? You can find all of the answers to these questions by coming back to my blog!
Until my next post, Readers!
