Big Brother 15, Episode #30 – Romeo vs Juliette
This episode of BB 15 had a different kind of feel to it. It started off with the same energy the other episodes this season had, but them it became sad. Why did the liveliness leave the show for me? Well, it was because the show focused on Amanda and McCrae’s relationship, and how it could potentially be over at the end of this week. How romantic! Pitting Romeo verses Juliet. Personally, I’m no longer an Amanda fan, and I wasn’t saddened by how the last showmance still together this season may be splitting up, but some of the House Guests were. Read on to see how it came to this.
Amanda was in shock, and was in investigative mode to try and figure out how her and McCrae’s game had just taken a 180° turn for the worst. She and McCrae were trying to figure out why GinaMarie would target the two of them, but couldn’t pin down the culprits.
Amanda decided to interrogate GinaMarie about who her accomplices were so she could make sense of what was happening in the House. GinaMarie said this was her decision, and she was getting revenge for how Amanda used Aaryn to run her agenda. Amanda tried to argue that her target should have been Elissa for everything Elissa did to Aaryn while she was in the House, and for her eviction. GinaMarie told Amanda she was playing her own game, and she wasn’t going down like Aaryn did. Amanda said that GinaMarie was ruining her game by doing this, and she should go after other people in the House.
Amanda went back to McCrae, head spinning, to figure things out. She admitted that everone in the House lied so well. Hey, Amanda! You’re not the only one playing this game, remember? Other people are allowed to lie about things in the House, too. This game is not about you and McCrae. She came to the conclusion that Spencer and Judd must be in on this coup in order for GinaMarie to go ahead with this plan, and that she would have their votes, too.
From this point in, most of the show became sappy. Amamda and McCrae were reminiscing about their time in the House, and how sad they were that their time together could be coming to a close.
Andy, still working both sides of the House, took a defeated Amanda into the Storage Room to give her a pep talk to pump her up for the Veto Competition. He told her not to let Elissa’s cattiness get to her, and to fight to win the Comp. Unbeknownst to Andy and Amanda, Elissa was listening at the door to their whole conversation. This set off the alarm bells in Elissa’s head about who Andy really was loyal to in the House if he was acting this way towards Amanda. Amanda and Andy found out that Elissa had heard this conversation, and Amanda had then declared war on Elissa for, once again, doing something that she does constantly in the House.
At the Veto Player Selection Meeting, GinaMarie (HoH), McCrae (Nominee) and Amanda (Nominee) chose Elissa (GinaMaire), Spencer (Amanda’s House Guest’s Choice) and Andy (McCrae) out of a box of names to participate in this week’s Veto Competition. GinaMarie was also happy to announce that Spencer and Judd’s punishment was officially over, so they could get out of those silly chicken suits.
After the Meeting, Amanda spoke with Andy and Spencer about using the PoV. She asked them not to feel pressured to use it on either her or McCrae to save them from Eviction. Spencer later confessed that he had no intention of using the PoV on any of them, because he wanted to keep his butt off the block at all costs.
Elissa was sharing her suspicions about Andy with Judd in the BB Bathroom. She said she didn’t trust Andy, and shared with him what she heard earlier between them in the BB Storage Room, and that Andy had also voted Helen out of the House. Judd wet to Andy, accusing him of working both sides of the House. Andy brushed off these accusations, saying Elissa was crazy.
Bowlerama was the name of this week’s PoV Competition. Played tourney style, each player, wearing lovely leggings and a tutu, had to knock down 4 bowling pins on an upward slanted lane after spinning themselves around 15 times to unlock the gate guarding their lanes. They only had 15 seconds to throw as many bowling balls as possible up their lane. The player who knocked down their pins the fastest won the golden Power of Veto. Amanda played her heart out, defeating every player she came across until she came up against her showmance, McCrae. After a hard fought battle, McCrae came out the winner, bringing Amanda to her knees in defeat, and to tears. Some of the House Guests commented on how sad it was to watch them battle for their BB lives against each other this way. Well, it’s either them or you, House Guests!
As Amanda and McCrae were consoling each other in the BB Bathroom, The Exterminators were in the HoH Room trying to figure out who to put up as a replacement for McCrae. The guys were unanimous in putting Elissa up, but GinaMarie felt differently about this choice. She said that since Elissa had the choice to put her up last week against Aaryn, but chose Spencer instead, that she would return the favour. Spencer, feeling secure he was safe this week, volunteered to go up, again!
At the Veto Meeting, as expected, McCrae took himself off the block, forcing GinaMarie to then put Spencer up as a replacement. After the Meeting, McCrae confessed he should have used the PoV on Amanda, then tried to work his magic to save himself because he felt she was a much better player than he was in the game. Spencer also spoke about this being his 7th time on the block, which is a Big Brother record for any player ever to have played the game! He’s hoping to also set the record for also coming off the block still in the game 7 times as well.
So, Readers, unless there is some form of unforeseeable deal made, it looks like Amanda will be the next House Guest exterminated. That’s another eviction I can’t wait for! She wreaked enough damage in the House that she deserves this kind of divine justice. But, as I’ve learned so many times by watching this show, never count your chickens until they’ve hatched. You never know what will happen in this House. Will Amanda actually be the one leaving the BB House, or will Spencer finally feel the sting of being the Pawn this week? Oh, the next episode is going to be another Double Eviction Night, so two people will be leaving the House to become part of the Jury this week! I can’t wait to see who it will be.

Until my next post, Readers!
