Big Brother 15, Episode 23 – #BB15; #Nominations

bb15For weeks now we have been watching and hearing Helen tell whomever is Head of Household that they need to make a big move.  They need to nominate someone unexpected, they need to make a game changing move that the HOH will be remembered for.

For weeks we have watched and listened as Helen has run the house, pulled the puppet strings of her castmates and whispered in the ears of anyone who would listen how they should play the game.

This week Aaryn is the Head of Household for the fourth time….  I wonder if she will make that game changing move that Helen has been hoping for this week?  <EG>


Sunday night’s show starts with Amanda in the diary room bragging that she has had a hand in every eviction in the last several weeks.

(On a side note…. what’s with the headbands this summer?)

Andy is not happy he had to send Jessie out, but he knows for his game it was smart and keeps him relatively safe with the other house guests.

BB 15 AARYNAaryn wins HOH for the fourth time.  It seems like she is much more popular in the house than she once was and house guests seem to genuinely like her.

McCrae and Amanda give each other a sob story for losing the HOH competition.  Amanda complains that she can’t win anything and McCrae tells her he is never going to throw another competition.  Amanda blows up on McCrae for the comment… would someone PLEASE give her some medication… ugh!

Amanda goes into the pantry and hides behind a garbage can…. yes a garbage can, to cry about losing the HOH competition.

Elissa is worried Aaryn will nominate her.  Helen assures her she will not be evicted because she has the votes to stay if she is nominated.  Helen tells Elissa not to feel defeated this is a game and you just have to keep playing.  In the diary room, Helen says she would never play the game with a defeated attitude like Elissa.

Helen goes to Aaryn to kiss ass and tell her what a great game player she is and how much she deserves to win.

When Amanda comes out from behind the garbage can, she decides that Aaryn should nominate Elissa and Helen… a really big move.

Aaryn tells McCrae her plan is to put Spencer and Elissa up for nomination.  Amanda tells Aaryn to put up Helen and Elissa and to let Helen think Elissa is the target.

Aaryn does not want to nominate Helen.  Amanda pushes and tells Andy in front of Aaryn that she will be nominating Helen and Elissa with the vote going to Helen for eviction but telling her all week she is the pawn.

3 AM finally assigns each member a name:  Amanda is the Mastermind; Andy is the Agent; Aaryn is the Beast and McCrae is the Enforcer.

Aaryn show her HOH room….. again.

Helen tells Elissa that she needs to talk to Aaryn and not to give up.  Elissa does not’ know if it will do any good.  Helen tells Elissa she is trying to prop her up and just trying to help her.

Helen and Elissa both cry over not seeing their families and their kids going back to school.  Elissa tells Helen if she gets evicted she is not going to the Jury House, but she is going home.  Helen cries because “she has done so much for Elissa,” and it hurts her for Elissa to just give up.  Helen cries to McCrae, Amanda, GinaMarie, Spencer, Aaryn and Andy that she feels like she can’t save Elissa any longer.


Two teams:  This is a black box competition, the teams must find a key in a totally blacked out room.

GREEN TEAM:  Helen, Amanda, Elissa and GinaMarie  – GinaMarie finds the key and the green team exits with a time of 7:21

ORANGE TEAM:  McCrae, Spencer, Andy and Aaryn  – Spencer finds the key and the team exits with a time of 3:41

Have-nots for the week are Helen, Amanda, Elissa and GinaMarie.


*Side Note – is it just me or does “The Crazy Ones” with Robin Williams look awesome!?!?!??!

CLASSIC conversation with GinaMarie and Helen discussing her families immigration from South Korea to the United StatesGM makes the comment, “it’s like being in a different country or something.”  You just can’t make this stuff up!

Elissa goes to Aaryn and tells her she is a lovely girl and has grown up in the house a lot.  This is her attempt to try to remain in the house and not be nominated.

Aaryn assures Elissa if she is nominated she is not the target.  Elissa doesn’t even hear her say it.

Helen goes to Aaryn and tells her she knows Elissa is going on the block.  Helen tells Aaryn she will do whatever she wants with the nominations, assuming she is going to put Spencer and Elissa up for eviction.  However, Helen thinks she may go up for eviction because of her close alliance with Elissa.


Helen and Elissa are nominated.



Hey Helen, you got that big move you were looking for…. are you happy now?  I am!!!!!
