Fandy Land Falls, and Then Gets Back Up? #BB15

One of Andy's friends started a Tumbler site at the beginning of the season to support Andy's efforts on Big Brother 15.  The site seemed to start off well enough, with some splashy graphics and a celebrity mentioning Andy on Twitter.

But then after July 15th, the posts died off until September 11th.  That's a pretty big time gap.

Big Brother is a marathon every year, and if you sprint out of the gate as a player or a blogger it is easy to burn out.

You can visit Fandy Land yourself here.

Doing Nothing is Very Tiring #BB15

This is what was happening right now in the BB house, and what will likely happen for most of the time until the Finale.

Last night after Andy won Part #2 of the Final HoH competition, he and Gina Marie had a long talk while Spencer was in the Diary Room.  From the sound of it, it seemed that both of them were pledging to take each other to the end, no matter what.

(You can learn more about the HoH Part #2 competition here.)

Andy even did the "we both just won at least $50,000" routine with her, and they both kind of crowed about the fact that neither of them earned any money throughout the season, which seemed really fair.

(But didn't Andy win $94 just last week?)

Andy said he didn't want to go to the end with anybody but Gina Marie, and bless her heart, she took that as a compliment.  (I think Andy meant it, but only because he thinks he can beat her.)

I was hoping to see Spencer and Andy in the Final Two, because I'm not sure that Gina Marie winning Big Brother 15 is a good thing for the sport.  I don't think this is anybody's Favorite Final Three, but at least Andy and Spencer are true fans of the game.

I've heard Andy make this same Final Two pledge with Spencer, too, so if he wins the Final HoH live this Wednesday night I won't be certain who he will choose until that very moment.

And CBS must have had an emergency meeting before coming up with the half-baked plan to goose the ratings by having Dr. Will question the Jury.  Dr. Will has no idea what to do, and a quick glance at his Twitter feed confirms this.

He's clearly scrambling.

The finale will be "outrageous"?  The results may be an outrage, I'll give Dr. Will that, but I seriously doubt it will be "outrageous".  But maybe CBS will give Will the green light to quote some of the nasty things the jurors have said, and maybe show a highlight reel featuring some of the worst comments.

Now THAT would be "outrageous".

Matt Hoffman knows Dr. Will is out of ideas, too, and really let him have it in his own sarcastic way.

Spencer and Andy Got Crabs Last Night. #BB15

So who won Part #2 of the Final HoH Competition last night?  (Andy won.)

When BBAD started last night, the competition was still happening in the backyard.  Spencer and Andy were playing in the Part #2 competition and it lasted well over two hours.  It was one of those competitions where each guy took his turn completing the challenge and the fastest time won.  Gina Marie just sat around waited inside the house, I think, while all of this was happening.

All of a sudden all three of them were in the kitchen, where Andy proceeded to talk like a MOTORMOUTH for quite some time.  Apparently they had to climb up a net with crabs bearing pictures of the evicted house guests, putting them in order of eviction.

This sounds EXACTLY like last year's competition, where we saw Ian beat Danielle scaling up a city scape set up in the backyard.

Andy:  I couldn't find Candice!  I couldn't find Candice!  I was freaking out that I couldn't find Candice!

GMZ:  Yeah, fuck that bitch.

Spencer:  I couldn't find Aaryn, dude.

Andy says this competition was the hardest thing he has done all season, and he feels sore already.  Spencer says he had to stop and take a break after only placing five crabs, and worried that he might not be physically capable of finishing.  He thinks he will sleep all day on Sunday due to soreness.

Gina Marie wanted to know why someone didn't get Nick's crab for her and Andy gave some sort of hurried response that I didn't understand.  They all know that GMZ would have killed that challenge due to her physical skills.  She says the key would be to use your legs to move up the net, not your arms.

Andy says the first couple of times were fun, but you had to climb 14 times and that is what was difficult.  They had only 60 minutes to finish, and then each crab not placed in the net after 60 minutes would add time to their score.

 Here is Andy holding one of his crabs.

Andy is very excited and is still blabbing a mile a minute.  You'd think he would be a little more respectful to his friend Spencer, but I guess he doesn't have to be at this point.  Spencer has no power anymore---it's up to whoever wins Part #3 live on Wednesday night to choose who they will take to the Final Two.


And there are a few of you out there in InternetLand would want to see this, I guess.  Spencer went to take a shower and probably to get away from Andy's constant self-congratulatory chatter.

He has a clean pair of plaid shorts to put on after his shower, lest you think he plans to put the same pair afterwards.  Spencer may be disgusting, but he's not gross.

After he got in the shower and under the spray, he started singing "Sweet Baby James" and we got FISH for a moment.  ("Rockabye, sweet baby James"....)  In your wildest dreams, would you expect Spencer to come up with a song like that at a time like this?

Even with the shower running, the sound of Andy's motormouth could be heard in the kitchen talking to Gina Marie as she started making chicken parm for dinner.

Andy, running in the bathroom:  Do you think if I ask them they would give me the Candice Crab?  I think I'm going to ask them and maybe they will give it to me later. Oh my god that was so hard!  It was so hard!  Oh my God!  Oh my God!

Spencer took a moment to reflect before he got dressed and ready.  Note that he could still hear Andy's constant yapping from the kitchen.  

FYI I will say again that as intimidating and mean as Spencer looks most of the time, as soon as he speaks his voice is always even and good-natured.   Even if that is easy for him it is an impressive skill, particularly at a time like this when he must want to throw somebody through the wall.

Sad, Sad News

This is so sad.  I just can't understand how something like this could happen to a sweet, innocent baby.

Britney (Haynes) Godwin and her husband Ryan have announced that their infant daughter Tilly Elizabeth has been diagnosed with cancer.

You can read the article on Reality Tea here.

If you watched the live feeds last year, then you know Britney couldn't wait to be a mother.  Ryan was her high school sweetheart and they both wanted to start a family as soon as possible.

I am sending strength and good wishes to Britney, Ryan and Tilly.
