Judd the Stud? #BB15

Judd and Jessie are laying on the couch all tangled up, like this:

They are actually telling each other where they live, and describing where in Texas and Tennessee their towns are located.  Doesn't it seem odd that they have been living there for over one month and haven't talked about this yet?  Life in the Big Brother house is such a suspended reality --the basic parts of life just don't matter much to them since they have nothing to do with the game.

She said his face smelled so good, but then she did some sniffing and they decided it was Judd's hair gel.  She asked him about it but Judd could barely remember the name of it.

And then it was over.  Jessie went to the kitchen to eat some Baked Lays and everybody's life just went on.

Four Will Have Not This Week #BB15

The foods that America voted for were Ramen and Raisins.  They certainly don't make for a very colorful display, do they?

I guess they can use the raisins to flavor slop cookies, but the ramen noodles are just chock full of sodium.  It might be tasty for a day or so but after a few days we will certainly hear some bitching and moaning about it.

Let's guess who the biggest complainers will be from the list of Have Nots this week:

Gina Marie

Judd is going to have a ROUGH week in there with those girls.  I just heard him say that Gina Marie's constant talking about Nick after two other people have left the game is getting close to insanity.

How will GMZ handle slop for the first time?  Candice  just came off of a week of slop last night, at midnight, so that sucks for her. 

I also heard Helen say that her real last name is Fitzpatrick, but she wanted to use her maiden name so that people she has known for years will recognize her and get in touch.

Howard spent some time in the HoH with Aaryn and it was a pleasant conversation on the surface, but Howard left the room with the impression that he would be going on the block but was not Aaryn's prime target.  She told him she would not backdoor him, because she thinks that is a "bullshit move".  She also told him that people are afraid of him because they think he has been throwing the competitions, and will start playing hard and just "clear the house".  She also told him people have said he is using religion as game strategy in the house and it might be an act.

Aaryn would not say who her real target is, but Howard told her that if he makes it through, he will not harbor a grudge.  He feels that he can win HoH next week, and he's not afraid to make a big move at that time.

Howard didn't name names, either, but I think he was talking about Amanda.  Then he went into the bedroom and brought Judd and Spencer up to speed on the conversation.  Howard asked him what he would do if Candice got backdoored this week and Howard said there may be nothing he can do about it. 

I am particularly proud of the following picture.  Howard did throw the banana in the air quite a few times so I had a few chances to get it right.

Helen is still running things in the house, and summoned Andy to a meeting with her in the storage room where they compared notes and believe that Spencer and Howard are going on the block.

Amanda burst in and said that she had a talk with Elissa and she said she would put Spencer and Aaryn on the block if she wins HoH next week.  I guess that means they want to keep her this week?  We had a weird DR leak that turned out to be Amanda in the DR reciting the rules for the Have Not competition that was just held.  It was a Brain Busting Challenges and they had to clear some stuff off their desks.  Or something like that.

 Later, Jessie examined the ringworm on the left side of Amanda's face.  Amanda refuses to wear a band aid over it, but she is willing to wear the nicotine patches.

Jessie slid into the living room in her socks and started "The Jessie Show" for Judd, who is calmly eating a bowl of Ramen noodles and asked her if he should change clothes before the nomination ceremony.

Is it just me, or is McCrae getting a little cuter every week?  I like him with his hair off his face like this.  Maybe he looks cuter because Amanda isn't there and he can actually think and speak for himself.  He is talking more in the meeting than I have heard him say in weeks.

He met with Helen and Andy in the Cockpit and they think Aaryn is willing to do their bidding this week.  McCrae says they have to be able to control Elissa as much as they can.

McCrae is really worried that Elissa will win HoH and "go rogue" and says this is a certainty if she wins.  Helen says the war between Candice and Amanda is about to start and she is going to just sit back and let it happen without getting involved.

McCrae says their group is logical and sane and they then laugh about Amanda.  McCrae says he is going to try and control her and realizes she is a target in the game.  Helen says they all must be very careful not to tell Elissa anything important.  Helen says they have to be careful because America loves Elissa and McCrae immediately says he doens't think that is true.  Andy agrees and says he thinks America nominated her last week.  The MVP nomination will be announced tomorrow, so knowing who that is will help them figure out who the MVP is.  Helen just wants to know when the MVP twist is over.

Helen also wants Aaryn out and says there is no way she should go to the end because she "doesn't deserve" to be there. Helen also told both guys about Candice's tearful declaration today that she and Howard are playing separate games.  All three of them smirked and indicated this was a big fat lie.  Andy said he is going to watch them like a hawk.

(That Helen is cold.  She'll cut a bitch.  I am shocked with how sincere she is with each person to their face, and they don't even seem to realize that she is one of the biggest threats in the house.  Shelley from BB11 wished she could play this hard.  Dastardly, indeed.)

Amanda came in with a HUGE bowl of noodles and said she just wants to get really full.

Andy tried some, too.

 Helen said that ramen is really good if you put an egg in it, and then apolgized when she remembered eggs are not an option for the Have Nots.

Andy:  You're an asshole.

Andy is always cursing and calling people names but it is really funny and not offensive due to his accent and personality.  He is very quick with the insults and that is part of his charm.

The New HoH Gang #BB15

Everyone is sitting around waiting for the Have Not competition.  Andy is super stressed about it--he has been a Have Not for three of the four weeks of the game and is understandably worried about it.

He says if Aaryn comes out of the DR with different colored bandanas he might start bawling.  He does not want to be on a team with Spencer and says Spencer is the primary reason why they lost last week.

Amanda says her team was full of people who were Have Nots only 12 hours earlier, so they ate the effing ice cream like crazy.

McCrae said he was going downstairs to "stuff my fucking mouth with as much food as I can".  Andy would like to, but says he has a big knot in his stomach and may be too worried to eat.  Aaryn encouraged them to go down there and eat.

They can't wait to find out how Elissa is portrayed on the show.  Amanda said if she is portrayed as some sweet little thing who is bullied that she is going to be ill.  McCrae says he wonders about that, too.

McCrae came back upstairs with a sandwich and Amanda threw a  Demanda Hissyfit about how inconsiderate he is not to bring her any food, too.

McCrae:  Well, I said I was going down there and you didn't ask for anything.

Amanda:  I shouldn't have to ask.  I always get something for you every time I get food!

(Then date a woman, Amanda, if you'd like that level of service.  You may be eating sandwiches in Boca Raton within a week if you don't start Shutting Your Hole.)

You think that's peanut butter?  I sure don't see any lettuce or tomatoes.  It appears to include the Brown and Yellow food groups only.

Jessie looks really cute and she and Amanda started going through the list of reasons why they hate Spencer. 

Amanda:  He came in here and said he's single, and now he says he's in love with Marilyn?  What the fuck?

Jessie:  And he said that they've been together for four years and he's thinking about buying a piece of jewelry for her?  Why doesn't he just go fuck himself instead?

(ha ha ha I like Angry Jessie.)

Jessie:  When he said he doesn't decorate for Christmas I just had to stop talking to him!  Did you notice that?  I literally didn't speak to him for the rest of the day.

McCrae said you can tell exactly how things are going in the house by Spencer's actions.  If he is really caring and considerate then you know he is in trouble.  They agree that when he is sarcastic and nasty that is the real Spencer.  Amanda badmouthed the Moving Company and said how stupid it was, seeming to forget her "fiance" is one of the founding members. 


Amanda was very sure that Julie Chen would be discussing her "engagement" on the live show.  Aaryn said when Julie asked McCrae about his birthday Amanda was displaying her ring prominently, waiting to discuss it.

Ha ha ha ha.

Candice Faces the Facts #BB15

After talking to Elissa and Helen for over an hour at the kitchen counter, they went into the Cockpit to have a private conversation.

Candice told the girls that today she and Howie decided to play separate games.  She just can't try to cover for him and keep him safe all of the time.  They're still going to be friends and snuggle, but she came into the house to play Big Brother, not to get into a showmance.  She is a big enough fan to know that those couples often lose, and her family would probably want her to play for herself.

 She held it together pretty well, and then a few minutes later she started talking about worrying about her mom.  She has been saying that she dreamed her mom had a heart attack, so she went in the DR and asked them to call her mother.  She thinks that they can't tell her that her mom was okay, but would probably tell her if her mom was seriously ill.

She said she's having a hard day, and that she's getting her period, too, and then the tears came.  Helen came over first to hug Candice.

Then Elissa came over to hug Candice from the other side.

I have to say that I am really feeling Candice today and what she is going through.  She is very reliant on her intuition and reading people's actions.  She was the first one to suspect The Moving Company, and she is right about needing to play separately from Howard.  She's doing the right thing. 

And I think she was right that keeping Kaitlin would have better for her game. 

Helen snapped into Pep Talk Mode but I guess they really needed it.  With girls sometimes if your friend cries, it is all the excuse you need to cry as well, because it seems we all have a little list of feelings and emotions that we have been putting off and shoving down to deal with later.  So I think Elissa is feeling that now, the loneliness of her own situation and frustration she may not be winning support from America anymore, for whatever reason.

I forgot to post earlier that now Candice is very suspicious that Amanda might have been the MVP last week, mentioning that she heard Amanda say that every time she goes in the DR she asks them if they have "an envelope under the couch for her".  She asked Elissa if she got an envelope off the couch when she was awarded MVP, and we got FISH, but Elissa must have said yes.  Because when the feeds came back Candice kept saying how would Amanda know that?

(Maybe as a fan she's seen that on the show before?  Jeff's Coup D'Etat was in an envelope because remember that he was supposed to read it aloud and had difficulties pronouncing the words?) 

Then Spencer came in and when he saw Candice crying he actually asked if he could join them instead of just barging in.  He asked Candice if she was okay and she told him  she was just thinking about her family.  I guess she didn't want to discuss Howard in front of Spencer, but maybe he knew that Howard is down today, too and had his own suspicions.

Well, Helen took the opportunity to discuss Jeremy, and how horrible it was when he confronted Helen and yelled at her.  Helen said it was one of the worst experiences in her life.  For the life of me I don't know what Helen is talking about.  Jeremy came in the kitchen and told the entire group not to blame anyone but him for stealing the wine.  Yes, Helen wanted some booze, but was what Jeremy said really so bad?  I don't get it.

Helen:  I'm just thankful I won HoH and got him out.  I can't imagine what it would be like if he won HoH after that and I had to go up and talk to him about the game.

Candice:  Probably just how I felt after Aaryn flipped my bed, and talked about the fish, and I had to go up there today and talk to her as the HoH!  But she won fair and square and it is what it is.

(That should shut Helen's trap right there---Candice has real reason to dread dealing with Aaryn.)

Helen left to go exercise, and when Spencer left he went over and gave Candice a sweet hug.  She apologized to him for something GMZ claimed she said about him and then said it wasn't true.  He said it is okay and not to worry. 

 At some point Andy had joined them, and when Candice was alone with him he kept prodding her to explain the real reason why she is upset today.  He just kept innocently asking questions, and then asked her if she knows if he can trust Howard or not.  Her answer eventually led to her telling Andy about her break from the game with Howard.

(I was like, No Candice!  Don't tell him!)

But this Andy is an Effing Gangster. He really is.  He finds a way to connect with people in there without making it seem like he has an agenda.  By the time they all figure out what Andy's game is, it may be way too late. 

So, kudos to Andy.  He's not going anywhere for a long time.  In fact, I don't think he needs to win HoH until maybe the Double Eviction night, if only to stab his alliance in the back quickly and efficiently.

He is VERY concerned about losing the Have Not competition today and says he is more worried about that than nominations.

Then Candice went to take a nap while waiting for the Have Not Competition to start.  Howard looked up and murmured something about having her trust him again but I don't know what she said.

(Don't do it Candice!  Don't do it!)

Watching the live feeds is so surreal sometimes.  I was just sitting watching Candice's face, and knowing how sad she is and how much she really likes Howard and how much it must mean to have someone like that in the BB house (or any house) and I started tearing up myself.  When she rolled over right at that moment to snuggle with him I really felt creepy for watching this.  We're freaks, right? For caring about this?
