Big Brother 15 Episode 3: McCrae’s Strategy Spells Disaster

My head hurts from all the face palms caused by this episode. For being a super fan of the show — McCrae didn’t use it to his advantage. He would know that the things he’s doing haven’t worked out for former houseguests. This pizza delivery boy better start analyzing his strategy or he’s headed for disaster.
Truth & Consequences
“I’m not going to cry in the corner about it,” and the next clip we see is Candice crying about it in the diary room. That moment was too funny. I do agree with Candice that McCrae shouldn’t apologize for his game play. McCrae should really get a game face and not show his hand. Candice is intuitive and pretty much called out the “Moving Company” alliance.
Elissa won because her sister Gisele Bündchen the super model and her fans will vote for her. I thought that was pretty clever, but nobody was really buying that. Now for the fact Elissa won and then immediately told the HOH, would have been a good move if it was someone you could really trust. McCrae seems to be trustworthy, but then we immediately saw him betray Elissa’s trust. This example should have been enough for Elissa to not trust McCrae anymore. Elissa is also showing tact attempting to gain support. McCrae continues to babble more words than he should. Why tell someone you’re going to backdoor them? McCrae is becoming an enemy with a target on his back.
Barbie & Ken On The Rocks?!?
So it’s already been a week for the houseguests and the showmance of “Barbie & Ken (Aaryn & David),” are already having a rough patch. David’s reaction was very much deserved because of the MVP twist. You really won’t know who it is until right before the POV competition. Their conversations are quite comical. However some comments were made during the live feeds that have many viewers upset. Let’s just say, if you’ve got nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all. But in the Big Brother house there’s someone always watching thanks to the live feeds. I am surprised how quickly they got into a fight over the MVP nomination. I wouldn’t think the person I’m schmoozing would nominate me. It would have been a smart move, but only around jury house time.
Who’s The Bigger Idiot?
A first in Big Brother history, someone was unable to complete the POV competition. I do commend David in using the resources around him. David looked at the banner to get inspiration for the “competition.” For Elissa “pot roasts” is not one word and an eight letter word won. Ironic that it was “delivery” and won by the “Delivery Boy,” McCrae. Candice had 50 minutes and all she came up with was “rafts”! I’m surprised neither Candice or Jessie tried harder.
Now just before the POV, its was announce from McCrae to Amanda that Elissa won MVP. Now telling secrets in the Big Brother house is like a “giving a mouse a cookie,” and the news will travels fast. I was surprised thought the group didn’t confront Elissa on whether or not she’s Rachel’s sister or winning MVP. Jeremy passively did it but also started attacking Elissa, which I wasn’t surprised by. I was surprised though by the touching moment between Elissa and Helen.
Prediction For Eviction
Even though the “Moving Company” wants David gone, the votes may not be in their favor. I predict it will be a 1-5-6 with Elissa going home, David narrowly getting safety and Jessie getting a vote from Amanda. However it could end with a tie which would mean McCrae would have to vote and admit to wanting Elissa evicted. He could also throw a curveball by evicting David which would surprise a part of the house. So either Elissa has as many lives as her sister Rachel during her season or will be going home because of being related to a Big Brother alum.
Prediction For HOH
I’m going to say Helen because I’m a fan of her and I’d like to see a lady in power next week.

Due to the holiday, my thoughts on tonight’s episode will be posted sometime next week along with Sunday’s episode.
FYI, starting July 13th, Big Brother will move from Wednesday “Live Evictions,” to Thursdays at 8 p.m, while keeping Sunday at 8 p.m. and Tuesday at 9 p.m.
Have a Happy Independence Day!
