Big Brother 15 – Mid-Point, Jury House #BB15 #JuryHouse @HamsterWatch @bigbrothernet

bb15Last night marked a monumental point in the game.  Besides the ugly screw that Amanda and Helen gave Judd, it marked the point where house guests become the ultimate judges in the game and move to the Jury House once they are eliminated.

Once voted out, the house guests become the jury who will eventually determine the winner of Big Brother 15.  Additionally, if Julie Chen‘s hint was understood last night, it also means that at some point one of those house guests will reenter the game.  GO JUDD GO!!!

I thought this would be a good time to go back and look at my very first post on Big Brother 15, my “first impressions” look at the contestants and see how those predictions hold up today.  I am sure I will have egg on my face with some, but others may be spot on…. let’s find out.

My original post is here.

BB 15 AARYN  Aaryn, smart girl, pretty, seems likeable and has Southern charm on her side.  I predict she will be the final FEMALE standing.  TODAY:  STILL SMART AND SEEMINGLY SMARTER ALL THE TIME, STILL PRETTY ON THE OUTSIDE BUT ONE OF THE UGLIEST CONTESTANTS EVER ON BIG BROTHER.  HER LEGACY FOR THIS SHOW WILL BE BECAUSE OF HER WE NOW HAVE A VIEWER ADVISORY THAT APPEARS BEFORE EACH EPISODE.  AARYN IS VILE AND HER LIFE WILL BE FOREVER ALTERED ONCE SHE LEAVES THE BIG BROTHER HOUSE

BB15 DAVID David, like quite possibly the dumbest human on the planet dude!  But he is going to be some GOOD TV!  TODAY:  YOU KNOW I WAS RIGHT!  TOO BAD HE WAS THE FIRST TO GO, HE WOULD HAVE BEEN FUN.

BB15 ELISSA  Elissa, sister of demon spawn Rachel, won’t make it to week 3.  The other cast members are already on to her secret.  TODAY:  I WAS WRONG ABOUT HER NOT MAKING IT PAST WEEK THREE, HOWEVER I BELIEVE IF IT WERE NOT FOR THE MVP VOTE SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED MUCH SOONER.  THAT POWER SHE HAD EACH WEEK MADE HER SOMEONE THE OTHERS WANTED TO ALIGN WITH AND HELPED HER GAME.  SINCE LOSING THAT POWER SHE HAS FADED INTO THE BACKGROUND AND IS JUST KEPT AROUND AS A VOTE FOR THE WILL OF HELEN.

BB15 GINAMARIE   GinaMarie, this is her audition for a future in porn, she will succeed at that audition.  TODAY:  RIGHT AGAIN!  SHE IS ANOTHER OF THE VILE MEAN GIRLS, OVER VERBOSE, CRUEL AND LACKING A FILTER.  WE HAVE LEARNED A FEW THINGS ABOUT GM WHILE IN THE HOUSE….  SHE FELL IN LOVE WITH A GUY FOR 2 WEEKS WHO NEVER ACKNOWLEDGED SHE WAS AROUND, SHE HAS NO GAG REFLEX AND CAN SWALLOW DIRECTLY FROM THE TAP (REMEMBER THE YOGURT EATING CONTEST).  HER COMMENTS TO CANDICE REGARDING ADOPTION LAST NIGHT WERE SO FAR BELOW THE BELT THAT ANY HOPES OF PUBLIC REDEMPTION ARE NOW GONE, IGNORANCE IS BLISS BUT IT ISN’T EXCUSABLE!

BB15 HELEN     Helen, everyone better watch out for Helen, she works in politics so we know she can be deceptive and manipulating.  If she makes it to jury weeks, she could be a key player at the end of the game.  TODAY: LOOKS LIKE I WAS DEAD ON WITH MY INITIAL IMPRESSION OF HELEN.  SHE HAS BEEN RUNNING THIS HOUSE SINCE WEEK TWO AND IT APPEARS THAT NO ONE WANTS TO TAKE HER ON.  THE BIGGEST MOVE A PLAYER COULD MAKE WOULD BE TO PUT HELEN AND AMANDA ON THE BLOCK TOGETHER WITH MCCRAE AS THE BACK UP IF POV WERE WON BY EITHER, I WOULD LOVE TO SEE THOSE TWO QUEENS OF THE BLACK HEART FIGHT IT OUT!

BB15 HOWARD  Howard, my early prediction for WINNER of BB15.  He already has both men and women in the house in love with him.  If he plays it cool, he has everything he needs to win the half million!  TODAY:  HOWARD NEVER MET HIS POTENTIAL IN THE GAME.  HIS CRITICAL MISTAKE WAS LYING TO HELEN, THAT CONVERSATION IN THE BATHROOM WITH HER COULD EASILY HAVE COST HIM THE WIN.

BB15 JEREMY  Jeremy, will be an animal in challenges and before the end of week 2 will probably have a “secret alliance” with every person in the house.  Look for Jeremy to be the first backdoor eviction of the season.  TODAY:  WELL HE WASN’T THE FIRST, BUT HE WAS A BACKDOOR AND FOR THE REASON I LISTED.  EVENTUALLY ONE OF THESE BIG GUYS WILL LEARN TO BE COOL FOR A WHILE AND NOT LET THEIR TESTICLES RULE THEIR GAME PLAY!

BB15 JESSIE   Jessie, well she thinks highly of herself…..  probably too highly for Big Brother.  TODAY:  I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I EVEN SAID THAT ABOUT JESSIE, UNTIL LAST WEEK I HAD FORGOTTEN SHE WAS IN THE HOUSE.  AT THIS POINT SHE IS JUST THERE FOR A VOTE, THE SECOND SHE IS NO LONGER NEEDED SHE IS GONE… PROBABLY THURSDAY.

BB15 JUDD  Judd, will be fun to watch but no chance of winning.  TODAY:  OH JUDD, EVICTED BECAUSE OF PARANOIA BY TWO EVIL WOMEN.  I HAVE A FEELING HE WILL BE BACK IN THE HOUSE SOON AND HOPEFULLY HE WILL BE THERE TO RIGHT SOME WRONGS!

BB15 KAITLIN  Kaitlin, was she on the show?  TODAY:  MAYBE I MISTOOK HER FOR JESSIE ON THE FIRST NIGHT… WHATEVER THE CASE SHE IS GONE AND HER BEST MOMENTS IN THE HOUSE WERE OUTSIDE THE HOUSE WHEN TALKING TO JULIE.

BB15 MCCRAE  McCrae, yes America, he really is a pizza-boy.  He is also the first Head of Household which doesn’t usually fare for success in the house.  I hope he stays around for a while because he could be really fun!  TODAY:  I SO WISH HE COULD GET OUT OF THE EVIL GRASP OF THAT NASTY COUGAR AMANDA,  WHILE HE HAS PLAYED A DECENT GAME SHE HAS HELD HIS REAL POTENTIAL DOWN.  HE HAS A CHANCE OF WINNING, BUT ONLY IF HE GETS AWAY FROM AMANDA.

BB15 NICK  Nick, will be the character that America grows to hate, QUICKLY!  Won’t see his blind-side coming!  WE DIDN’T HATE HIM, BUT HE ALSO DIDN’T SEE HIS BLIND SIDE, SO I WOULD GIVE MYSELF A 50% ON THIS ONE.  I HOPE HE HAS CHANGED HIS ADDRESS AND GONE IN THE WITNESS PROTECTION PLAN BECAUSE ONCE GINAMARIE GETS OUT OF THIS PLACE HE IS GOING TO BE IN TROUBLE.

BB15 SPENCER Spencer, will be the character most likely to blow up first.  Watch out, when he blows it won’t be pretty!  TODAY:  I JUDGED SPENCER WRONG, HE HASN’T BLOWN BUT WOW HE HAS SAID SOME INAPPROPRIATE STUFF AND I WOULD THINK HIS LIFE IS PRETTY MUCH SCREWED ONCE HE GETS OUT OF THE HOUSE.  EVERYONE WANTS HIM OUT OF THE HOUSE, IT IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL IT MAKES SENSE TO MAKE IT HAPPEN.

Well ladies and gentlemen, those were my predictions and my updates.  Some I was pretty close on others, not so much.

Overall, I am not impressed with this season, the ugliness has just been too much for me and the characters aren’t really that interesting.

The humor of Amanda is outweighed by her constant need for attention and just gross demeanor.

Helen is like a gnat going from person to person being annoying.

McCrae is being held down by cougar vagina and GinaMarie is just too icky to even watch when on the screen.  The others are just floating along being told what to do.

I am going to miss Judd’s one liners, but hopefully he will return to the house soon and this time NOT be Mr. Nice Guy, but Mr. I Am Here for Revenge.

I wish I could like Aaryn because she is becoming a major power player, but I just can’t.  Could she win?  PLEASE Lord, don’t let that happen…. PLEASE!!!!!!!!

At this point, Amanda and Helen are running the house, I see no one willing to cross them but neither of them are any good at the competitions, at this point Helen probably has the advantage for winning, but from those left in the house (not including a reentry) my hope would be for McCrae to win it all.

Big Brother 15, Episode 11; #BB15 #HOH #Nominations

bb15So when we were last together, Jeremy was on his way out the door and Judd became king of the mountain.

Judd has officially become my favorite player in the house, I think he is hilarious and is showing that you can play the game with class and honor.

Now let’s see what’s going on in the house…

SPOILERS BELOW: 

Advisory still starts the show.

Show begins with recap of eviction, Kaitlin crying in diary room, Aaryn trying to be humble and Helen celebrating.

Spencer worries about an all girl alliance as the first three people evicted have all been men.

The majority of the house genuinely seems excited that Judd has won HOH.

Amanda immediately begins the push Judd to put Howard on the block for eviction.  Her pushing rubs Judd the wrong way, as I have said before Amanda’s “push” will be what gets her evicted.

Judd’s HOH room is exactly what you would expect…  goofy pictures of High School Judd, pictures with his mom, a sweet letter from his mom and dad.   At some point CBS will probably need to start using permanent sub-titles for Judd.

GinaMarie’s use of the English language is a comedy segment for the evening.  Interprenator, compronisation, et al, she’s a genius.

Howard and Candice began a showmance…. it’s sweet.

The nasty girls, GinaMarie, Aaryn and Kaitlin have a tiff, that’s the thing with nasty girls, they will turn on you at the drop of a hat.

Have and Have Nots competition is a fro-yo “nasty food” tasting for weight gain.

Orange team is Andy, Spencer, Candice and  Jessie  – gained 11 pounds in the competition

Blue team Helen,  GinaMarie, Kaitlin and Aaryn – gained 13.2 pounds

Green team  McCrae, Amanda, Howard and Elissa – gained 12.9 pounds

GinaMarie has the best swallowing talent.  (See my prediction for GinaMarie in my first impressions.)

Have nots are Andy, Spencer, Candice and Jessie

Amanda continues to push for Howard to be nominated along with Spencer and Candice.

Elissa and Howard share a session of yoga…..  exercise porn for the masses.

Amanda once again pushes Judd to nominate Howard.  McCrae and Andy just watch her push, Andy states the obvious and what the rest of the world is thinking….. Amanda is playing WAY to hard and pissing people off.

NOMINATION CEREMONY:

Nominated for Eviction……

BB 15 AARYN  Aaryn

BB15 KAITLIN  Kaitlin

Julie Chen rocking the bright red asymetrical dress!

Show starts, recap, recap, diary, recap, diary

Jeremy dressed like a baby, Aaryn trying to act like a human, GinaMarie mourning Nick, Amanda making boob jokes, McCrae loving Amanda’s boobs, Judd being awesome and Andy sitting in the middle of everything watching.  Is Jessie still on this show?

Jeremy tries to make nice with Helen and Elissa, I am shocked that Helen bought into it as much as she did.

Julie visits the living room and interviews the house guests.

Amanda and McCrae showmance of the summer and their families weigh in.  Hilarity ensues.

BB15 JUDD

Big Brother Season 15 Episode 9, #BB15 #POV #MVP

bb15It is Wednesday and I am pretty confident I know who will be going home tomorrow night.

I am confident by the end of tonight’s show you will too.

Let’s get started….

SPOILERS BELOW….

Viewer advisory still starts the show….. this is sad for me as a long time fan.  I hate that CBS and Big Brother are risking this long-time brand by allowing the little racist princess to stay in the house.

With Kaitlin and Aaryn on the block for eviction, the show begins in the diary room with comments from those nominated and the HOH.

In diary Helen makes it clear that the nominees are not her target, if she has to send one out of the house it should be Aaryn, but she has bigger targets for a backdoor plan.

Jeremy is convinced the MVP will nominate him.

Helen does not want the MVP to nominate Jeremy, she wants to backdoor him as he is her ultimate target.  Helen wants Spencer nominated by the MVP.  Amanda and McCrae want Howard nominated.

Spencer meets with Helen.  He admits the Moving Company is no more.  He tells her who was in the group.  Helen lets Spencer know she thought about nominating him and she also let him know that Howard lied about the Moving Company.

Spencer pledges his allegiance to Helen.

Spencer goes to Howard and lets him know that Helen knows he lied about the Moving Company.

BB15 ELISSABig Brother MVP is…….  Elissa!  Three weeks in a row.  Honestly I didn’t like Elissa at the beginning of the season, now, I really like her, MUCH more than her sister!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Elissa tells Amanda and McCrae she is MVP.  They want her to put Howard up for eviction and she is not happy about their choice.  She feels used by the alliance.

Howard goes to Helen and her alliance to let them know about the Moving Company.  He apologizes for not telling the group and says he was aligned with the wrong people.

Elissa ask for a private meeting with Helen to discuss MVP.  Helen and Elissa decide they want to backdoor Jeremy and they will nominate Spencer as the third nominee.

Amanda, Andy and McCrae try to pressure Elissa into nominating Howard.  Amanda brings Elissa to tears with her forceful pushing, this type of heavy-handed attitude will eventually be Amanda’s downfall.

As Helen calls the house guests together to choose players for the POV, the MVP nominee is announced….  Spencer.

BB15 SPENCER

The contestants for the POV Competition are….

Helen, Aaryn, Kaitlin, Spencer, GinaMarie and Candice.

Jeremy knows by not playing for the POV he is going to be backdoored and the remaining house guests all have glee on their face knowing Jeremy will more than likely go home this week.

Kaitlin begs GinaMarie not to use the veto if she wins, Kaitlin sees this as the only chance she and Jeremy both have at staying in the house.

Amanda lets Kaitlin know  if she wins veto and doesn’t use it she will be the target to go home.

BB15 JUDDFINALLY, JUDD ….. Judd hosts the veto competition.

A backyard filled with classical paintings representing the BB15 guests as the art subject.  A trampoline, a wall, artwork and trying to duplicate the other side is the object of the game.  This is a timed competition, quickest to finish wins….

Candice  8:46

Helen  8:55

Aaryn  9:50

Spencer  12:19

GinaMarie  8:56

Kaitlin  7:09

The POV Winner is…… Kaitlin

BB15 KAITLIN

Helen is afraid that Kaitlin will not use the POV so that the house can backdoor Jeremy.

Jeremy decides he is going to turn on the “Cherokee Charm” and convince Kaitlin not to use the POV.

Kaitlin thinks she can get Helen to nominate Howard.

Helen is upfront with Kaitlin that if she uses the POV she is going to backdoor Jeremy and if she doesn’t she will go home.  Kaitlin tries to convince Helen to nominate Howard and Helen lets her know that Jeremy’s actions are what is going to get him backdoored.

Jeremy let’s Kaitlin know that he is ok with being backdoored and will walk out with his head held high.  Kaitlin lets him know his attitude is what is evicting him.

In diary, Kaitlin says that she may not use the POV to keep Jeremy safe.

At the POV meeting, Kaitlin uses the POV and removes herself from the block for eviction and Jeremy is nominated in her place.

BB15 JEREMY

As much as I would love to see Aaryn kicked out of the house on her racist ass, I am confident we all know who is the bigger threat and we know who will go home tomorrow night…..  the Cherokee Chief, Jeremy.

 

 

 

Big Brother Season 15, Episode 8 #BB15, #HOH, #Nominations, #Have/HaveNots

bb15It’s Sunday night and when we left off on Thursday we had a new Head of Household… the Mom Squad had moved to the Queen of the House and Helen sat at the head of the BB kingdom.

Now let’s see what happens with this new reign.

SPOILERS BELOW…..

With a late start due to Golf, the Sunday night show started at 8:19 EST.  I don’t like it when this happens because it screws up my DVR, but such is Sunday night television.

WOWBig Brother began with an Advisory and discussion of Aaryn’s racism…. WOW!

The show begins with GinaMarie’s “heart in pieces” and Jeremy confused by what has happened with Nick being evicted.

Kaitlin confronts Jessie over her vote and GinaMarie explodes on the house because Nick is gone.

Jeremy “the Cherokee Wonder” goes to the Helen and Elissa and compliments their game play.   Aaryn and Kaitlin console each other as they are “strong players” and now the weak will just eliminate them.

Through it all, GinaMarie continues to cry.  UGLY, snot running, can’t catch your breath cry!!

Jessie is confronted by Kaitlin, Jeremy and Aaryn.  Judd comes to her rescue and takes her away.  Aaryn attacks Candice bed and overturns the mattress onto the ground.

Candice comes in to find her bed on the ground, pillows on the ground and clothes thrown about the room.

Candice confronts Aaryn about the bed flip and the Klans-woman goes into her best “black girl” racist voice.  Candice tries to leave the room and GinaMarie blocks her, Howard literally picks her up and carries her out of the room.

Howard tries to speak reason to Candice and tells her to not let them push her minority button.  A heartbreaking conversation between Howard and Candice about racism and the way they are being treated in the house by the bullies.

In prayer and through tears Howard ask God for help with the situations of racism that are rampant in the house.

McCrae tells Amanda about the Moving Company.

Gina Marie continues to mourn the loss of her two-week non romance with Nick.  Candice shows her compassion.

Aaryn apologizes  to Candice for the way she treated her, the story she shares in the diary room is different.

Candice takes the high road and “accepts the apology.”

The Have/Have Nots competition is a farm-yard theme with three teams of four.

Howard, Aaryn, Kaitlin, GinaMarie

Judd, McCrae, Amanda, Jessie

Spencer, Andy, Elissa, Candice

Have Nots for the Week Are:  Judd, McCrae, Amanda, Jessie

Jeremy goes to Helen and tells her about the Moving Company.  Helen and Jeremy have a VERY honest conversation about the game.  Helen uses Jeremy to get valuable information moving forward.

Helen ask Howard about the vote. He is finally honest and tells her he voted to keep Nick.  He lies about the Moving Company alliance.  Helen is honestly disappointed by Howard’s lies.

Helen nominates:

BB 15 AARYNAaryn

BB15 KAITLINKaitlin

And GinaMarie finally stopped crying.

NOTE TO CBS AND BIG BROTHER PRODUCERS:

It is time for you to take a stand.  Last season you eliminated Willie Hantz from the house for being a threat to the other house guests.  Aaryn Gries is that contestant this year and needs to be removed from the house.

The intolerance Ms. Gries has displayed to the other house guests, her cruelty, lack of understanding basic etiquette for people to live together and abject racism has hurt this show, not only for Season 15 but the future.

CBS and Big Brother Executives need to take a stand and let it be known this type of behavior will NOT be tolerated now or in the future.  Ms. Gries needs to be sent out of the house and her 15 minutes ended for good.  Let her accept responsibility for her actions outside the house and live with her comments there.

Ms. Gries or no other contestant is worth ruining the Big Brother brand, she needs to be removed from the house now.
