What Could Have Been....#BB15

The air in the house is certainly deflated right now.  No one knows who the MVP is, so everyone is on edge knowing they could be the one nominated on Monday to replace Elissa.

Why, the person next to you could be the MVP.  Or the person you fought with last week.

Judd is in some sort of solitary confinement for 24 hours.  They hope he will be out in time for McCrae's birthday party tomorrow.   It doesn't usually last for 24 hours, more like 21 or 22 to minimize Sunday overtime for the crew.

Aaryn is still blonde, so she doesn't have to dye it after all.  I think she may have been saying that the mud was so dark she thought he would be a brunette.


 Andy got all dressed up.


This is the dress I've been waiting to see on Gina Marie.  You know the one....from her video with Jeff.  (You can see that here.)


McCrae has mud in his ears and is very down about the stigma of winning a $5,000 prize.  Jessie assured them that he just found it, and anyone would have kept it.  She doesn't think the amount is large enough to make people want to vote him out.

Kaitlin said it would be different if Aaryn won PoV and McCrae took the money, but things are fine now.  



Gina Marie enjoyed a piece of dried mango.  Andy, who is a Have Not, commented on how tasty they are, and I know he will bitch later about GMZ bogarting the Have Not's treat foods.


Those dried mangos can be tricky.


Elissa fixed a plate of something but then put it in the fridge when McCrae offered her the next shower in line.  She's certainly not gloating.  She's the only relaxed person in there right now, it seems.


Jessie and Amanda were talking about who to put up in Elissa's place, but I don't even know why they are bothering to waste calories on it...neither of them can do anything about it.  The paranoia in there is at an ALL TIME high, but it seems to be a quiet type of panic, since no one knows if they will be the next shocked nominee.



Helen gave McCrae a pep talk, saying to stop talking about the money immediately.  That is good political advice.  Just ignore something and it will go away.  But from McCrae's viewpoint the MVP could be pissed about this, and it is up to them who will take a seat on that nomination couch.

Judd is getting ready to go into isolation and he says he just wants to get it over with.  I saw him eat something and McCrae went upstairs to get Judd's new orange Tennessee blanket for him to take with him to isolation.

McCrae:  There's nothing you can do out here, so just take in some dental floss and play some games and whatever, I don't know...

I'm kind of worried about Judd in there alone.  I know he takes Xanax and maybe some other medications and that he is very anxious in general.  He said this morning that his biggest nightmare is "sittin' around waitin' for things to happen" and he paces constantly, and can't relax.

Being in a small space alone might be the same type of feeling to him as laying in a coffin.  I did that one time at a Halloween party, and it felt like the longest 15 seconds of my life.

If Spencer is worried, he certainly doesn't look it.  What in the world would happen if Helen gets put on the block?  Holy cow some drama would ensue.


 In the HoH Kaitlin finished her shower and chatted with Amanda and Gina Marie.  Andy was up there too for a few minutes, of course.  Amanda says McCrae is freaking out right now, and announces she and McCrae may have their "date night" tonight in the HoH, since Judd won't be there.

I'm sure other people would like to sleep up there, too.  I'll bet McCrae will realize that they need to stay downstairs tonight, to stay with the crowd since they don't know who the MVP is.

But whether he will do it or not will depend on what Amanda wants to do, of course.  She's wearing those pants, and she is the predator in that relationship.  Amanda is actually very polarizing with the fans and she might just get an unpleasant surprise this week.

 

Elissa came up and they chatted for awhile.   GMZ and McCrae are there, too.  They asked her who didn't seem happy that she won HoH and she said  McCrae, Judd, Candice and Howard.


 She looks so much like Rachel in this picture.  She was pointing at McCrae as she named him as not being happy she won.  She points with her hand upside down....it that common?  I just tried it four times and it didn't feel right at all.


GMZ is fed up with Aaryn and says she has tried so many times to tell her to tone it down and stop rolling her eyes and Aaryn just cuts her off.  Just a few weeks ago GMZ was calling Aaryn "her girl" and now she's pointing a finger at her.  She thinks whoever gets put up can relax, because they all want Aaryn out, it seems.


Elissa left to go get ready because she knows she'll be in the DR later.


 McCrae wondered why she said that to him.  He's pissed.  And worried, of course.

Aaryn came up with her bowl of cereal and they are all trash talking Elissa and they are just positive that Elissa as MVP nominated herself.  They are all providing various "facts" and convincing each other that Elissa pulled some big super strategic move.

Even if McCrae leaves this week (and he certainly won't)  I think he will LOVE the devious fan actions this week.  Allegedly, of course.  (See here.)


Aaryn says Elissa just smiled at her, and offers this as proof of sheer evil.  Andy knew Elissa won by her facial reactions during the reveal of the final scores.  She broke into a huge smile when she saw Aaryn's score.

 Kaitlin says every time she eats a nectarine her tongue gets so itchy.



Elissa Won PoV. #BB15

So whoever got the next largest number of votes from America will be nominated in her place.

McCrae won $5,000 but a lot of people won punishments.  Helen tells him not to worry, but McCrae says this is bad for him, to win so much when so many lost things.

I think Aaryn has to dye her hair.  I'm not sure what Helen's punishment was, but she said that she hoped it wouldn't be a punishment for the house.  I don't think it was, but they think there may have been some house punishments still "in there" somewhere.  Maybe in the mud?

Helen really wanted the signs, and McCrae says they were really cool.  Helen is going to decorate a room at her house with Big Brother stuff.





I think Elissa has to dye her hair, too, because Aaryn just apologized to her for it.  Elissa was very gracious.  Aaryn says she has mud "in her crack".

Everyone is freaking out about who the MVP will nominate in Elissa's place.  No one was going to use the PoV because of this...they didn't know who would be the next target.  McCrae said he wouldn't do it because Amanda might go up.

Hinky MVP Votes May Be the Big Story This Week #BB15

A reader let me know that there was a campaign to vote Elissa for MVP this week, even though we know the vote was for the nomination, not the MVP.

I know many people knew exactly what was going on here, but I'm also sure this ruse ensared a few innocent voters. 

But if the internet is going to help you with something, it's only fair that it can hurt you too, I guess.  I don't think Middle America ever votes for anything like this anyway, just the Super Fans or people obsessed with being "friends" with former players.

Check out the top posts for #elissa4mvp this week.


And here are a few posts from Big Brother Gossip after we all learned that Elissa was nominated.

This kind of reminds me of Howard Stern's "Vote for Sanjaya" compaign when a horrible singer named Sanjaya was on American Idol and these "fan" votes kept him in the competition weeks longer than he should have been there.  I don't even watch American Idol but I voted for Sanjaya a few times  myself, because Howard told me to.

The Have Nots Chowed Down at Midnight #BB15

While the PoV plays out I just watched the Have Not week end on Thursday at midnight.  As usual everyone gathered in the kitchen and a pizza was put in the oven so that it would be ready at the precise time.

A bottle of red was poured, and they waited for the clock to strike twelve.  Judd could have eaten as soon as he won HoH, but he wanted to wait until his Co-Have Nots could eat, too.  The Pizza Boy took the pizza out of the oven and cut it up when there was about a minute to go.  I heard McCrae tell Amanda that he liked to button his shirts like this, "casino style" with only one button fastened.


 Helen led the LOUD cheering as the clock counted down.

 

 At midnight they all toasted and cheered, and then started eating the pizza.


These two don't look happy, do they?  GMZ has some pretty bad issues with food, from what she has said on the live feeds, so I can't imagine that she ever lets herself enjoy food like this in front of people.



 Kaitlin likes to drink beer.




Amanda doesn't eat the crust.  I had an old boyfriend who called them the Pizza Bones.


McCrae danced around after eating a few bites and said the taste was glorious.





 Judd started chugging down one of his Coronas from his HoH Room.


After nine minutes I heard the girls say that they were getting full, and after 15 minutes it was really slowing down.  Just like Thanksgiving.

Amanda got out a big plate of cookies and started passing them around.  McCrae cut up limes for the Tecate beer.

I was watching Gina Marie, and the cameras were, too.  I was kind of worried about her.


Then the cameras showed us this.  So funny.
