Helen just took a one-way ticket to crazy town. I would have hoped that she knew who her allies were in this game, but apparently Helen is throwing them under the bus for whoever is in power. I really had high hopes for her but now it really feels like Helen is becoming a floater, like Andy, Jessie and Judd. Too many life vests are being thrown in this Big Brother house, people need to just sink or swim. McManda has officially said the “L” word and it’s only been a month, young love? Oh and Clownie returns to the Big Brother House.
Playing Nice With Aaryn
I am glad that Candice and Howard aren’t trying to play nice with Aaryn, since she’s this week’s HOH. I’m surprised at how much Aaryn is also trying to play nice with the house because she’s a target and doesn’t want to risk going home the following week. Spencer was right, Aaryn is HOH not anyone else. For Aaryn to stick with her word shows she wants to build trust with others to gain confidence in her. But Helen seems to be on a warpath to make sure to ensure her safety and no one else, even if it’s her closest allies. So many things were said from Helen that I was surprised to hear. For Helen being a political consultant, she’s looking to be on the unfavorable side. Hopefully I’m not the only one that feels this way.
Andy got a little bit of air time on last night’s episode, but it doesn’t make me a fan of his. His game is being a strategic floater and not making any bold moves. Also Andy isn’t really afraid to speak his mind in the Diary Room. The fact he wasn’t sad to see Kaitlin go even though making a friendship with her. This shows Andy playing the game but makes him look flakey and may be a surprise to Kaitlin to hear what Andy says in his Dairy Room confessions. Meanwhile the have not competition looked to have been an easy competition but turned our to be a mental challenge for some of the houseguests.
Who’s Going Up On The Block?
With the nominations looming it seemed certain that Howard and Spencer were going up. So both Howard and Spencer made their case to Aaryn. Aaryn continued to go on about how she doesn’t want to be a target next week and she’s doing what the house wants. Rather than think of what’s best for her game she’s putting a lot of faith on people who will turn on her the second she isn’t in power. I hope for Aaryn’s sake she realizes this and plays her own game. She may not be the most personable person with the viewers, but looking at her as a player in this house, I would like to see her do well.
My Prediction For America’s BBMVP Nomination
I sent out a tweet after Thursday’s episode of how I really wanted to see Amanda get evicted and I’m not the only one who feels this way. So I’m really hoping Amanda gets nominated and I know this will shake up the house. I would like to see Amanda go on a rampage and try to figure out who put her up and little does she know it was America. I think this will either help Amanda’s game if she can get past this week. I hope however that she is sent packing on Thursday. But the veto competition may save her.
My Prediction For POV & Replacement Nominee
If any of the nominations wins POV it is almost certain that it will be Elissa. She won’t be able to play this week since she took the penalty from last week’s competition. So it would seem to be the best move for Aaryn to get her up if POV is used. I would like to see Aaryn win POV because it will give her the power to keep her nominations or change it up and not have to be influenced by the other houseguests. Again I really hope Aaryn starts to play the game and not be used by the other houseguests.
We’ll just have to tune in at 8 p.m. on CBS 62 on Wednesday to see how this all pans out!
