Is #BB15 Allison Grodner's Last Season?

This article from TV Grapevine claims there are rumors out there that would seem to coincide with a change in Endemol executive management.

Will this be a good thing for Big Brother USA?

Change can be a good thing.

Scenes From the Last Few Days #BB15

I have been super-busy with fall tax season, but I took these pictures while I worked over the weekend and am posting them now instead of just deleting them.  I will try and remember some of the conversation that went along with the pictures, but I'm a little brain dead from fatigue so I can't promise much.

Because these lazy fools sleep all day, I usually start by looking at Flashbacks from the night before since I am on the East Coast.

Here are pictures of McCrae and GMZ going into the DR for a joint session.  Gina Marie didn't want to go, as you can see by her holding the 'friendship cord' like a noose around her neck.  I think I recall that this was their last session before getting the bracelets removed, but I would think she would be a little more skippy about going in the DR.





Andy found this laying in his bed.  It is a Play Doh model of Andy with a pin through his heart, like a voodoo doll.  Andy was "upset" about this but they all laughed and laughed.  Andy wondered if it was a threat of some sort.


I know there was a reason why I took these conversation pictures, but I can't remember what was said.  I think this was right after the nominations, so they were discussing what would happen if McCrae won the PoV.  (Which he later did, of course.)



McCrae was strangely calm after nominations.  He listened to Spencer blow smoke up his ass about how he wanted him to stay in the game, but I could tell McCrae's wheels were turning.  He needs to win every time now, and I think he knows it.  This is the McCrae I wanted to see all season, rather than the 'lay-in-bed-with-a-loud-mouthed-whore' version.


Judd comforted Gina Marie after the nominations.  He told her not to worry.



Spencer with his shirt off is very scary to me.  It just seems so wrong.


McCrae was able to make his own sandwich without any direction from Amanda.

I remember a great conversation he had with Spencer about Amanda.  Spencer told McCrae that it was evident how important family was to him, and that he should ask Amanda to move to Minnesota with him so he could be close to his friends and family.  He pointed out that Amanda could do real estate anywhere.  McCrae didn't seem overjoyed about moving to Florida with Amanda, but I've seen guys act this way in front of other guys, and then tell a different story when the wifey is around.

If McCrae wins Big Brother, I really hope his loved ones have an intervention for him before he decides to join Amanda anywhere.  That money could be more than he would earn in 20 years of hard work, and he needs to make the right choices.


Production gave the house guests a wide variety of Play Doh for them to entertain themselves.  I'm not surprised that Gina Marie was so creative with it.  They were also given plain white rubber ducks with a paint set so they could decorate them.  I wish I had taken a picture of Judd's duck----he painted it matte black with orange Tennessee logos.  The artwork was impressive.
 


This is Gina Marie's Play Doh Spencer.  You can tell she did a great job with his beard and striped tank top.
 


Lots and lots of black and white pictures on the Memory Wall.


This picture was taken after GMZ got 10 stitches in her leg.  It was a bloody mess and is very painful for her.  I'm not sure if she was given anything for pain, but the location of the wound would make it hard to forget about, I think.  If you plan on standing up, that is.


The PoV Ceremony is Over... #BB15

And Judd is on the block with Gina Marie.  He is sad about it, and told the rest of the Exterminators that if they see him sitting with McCrae the next few days, to please come and sit with him because he doesn't want anybody to get the wrong idea.

He got called to the DR and ate a few Townhouse Crackers before he left the room.


The group was quiet after he left, and said they hated that McCrae won the PoV and their group is getting split up.  Then GMZ pointed out that Judd "just quit doin' the puzzle, so he coulda done more to save himself".

Then, for good measure she points out Judd already had a second chance to win the game.


Spencer says that it is pitiful to watch Judd now...he is so sad and broken now.  Apparently Judd made some sort of speech during the Ceremony that had unusual timing.

Andy:  When he reached his hand in his pocket I was so scared he would pull out a Diamond PoV!


GMZ says McCrae is sleeping now, but Andy thinks that he might be lying there, and not sleeping.  She tells the guys that if she is going home this week, she would appreciate them letting her know so she can wear a pretty dress.

GMZ:  I mean, my leg is all messed up, so it won't look too pretty, but you know what I mean.

Spencer:  Ten stitches!

(In reality, the eviction will be held on Tuesday, with BBAD being taped on Tuesday morning.  That is tomorrow for them. Then the feeds will be down until Wednesday after the CBS show airs.  The eviction will not be held in front of a studio audience, although there may be some CBS employees on hand, similar to Howard's eviction.  In the past there were leaks regarding who was evicted right after it happened, but the new process this year may ensure that is not the case. )

(Last year Jenn City was evicted at this point, you can see how the news was leaked here.  Much love to Miss Cleo.)

Gina Marie is indeed smarter than she's been made out to be this summer.  After thinking for a moment she says who knows what Judd will do to stay in the game---she's worried about it.  She mentions the lie that Judd told about Kaitlin going after Helen, and Spencer says that is a very good point.

****BONUS****

Andy left the room during this conversation, but not before I captured this picture of him picking his nose.  I actually like Andy and think his level of game play this year was high-level sneaky and the results speak for themselves.  Spencer didn't even think about nominating Andy, even though he knows Andy betrayed Helen & Elissa, and also Amanda & McCrae.  It really is incredible how many times he has been overlooked, even after it was clear that he screwed over Amanda and tried to blame it on everybody else.

FYI I'm pretty sure he wiped his finger on that sequined pillow.
