For the readers: I do not condone racism or support what Aaryn said in the Big Brother House. I was just trying to make a point about how even though Aaryn was a bully … was it right for America to be a bully right back at her? Thank you to everyone who commented, facebooked, Tweeted, emailed me about Thursday’s recap. Good, bad or indifferent, I appreciate you taking the time to check out CBS Detroit and my recap! I hope everyone had an enjoyable Labor Day weekend.
Aaryn is in jury — FINALLY! However most of America would have liked her evicted weeks ago. With Aaryn in jury it will make for interesting jury house footage and her actions spoke just as loud as her words. If you want a good laugh check out Wil Heuser’s web series #BB15Saga. Hopefully in the jury house Aaryn will be doing some evaluation of her life because she’s going to need it after everything that she’s said in the Big Brother house. But I digress, GinaMarie, Aaryn’s confidant in the game hopped and maneuvered her way to her second HOH win! Talk about floater finally making a move. Although can we stop with the Nick references? Poor Amanda, how will she get herself out of this mess?
Exterminators Go To Work
With the whole Exterminator alliance battling for HOH the odds were in their favor to win over McManda. I still find it ironic that Andy the Rat is part of this alliance. Also his Exterminators dance is hilarious in the fact that I can only imagine him exterminating himself in this game! Looking at this season, these floaters who are all in the Exterminator alliance are slowly making moves in the game. I feel as though it’s a little too late for me to give them respect as a game player because they weren’t a threat or tried to make big moves. All of them hid behind Amanda, McCrae and/or Helen. I do give props to both Andy and Judd for winning HOH, but they did the bidding of the previously mentioned houseguests. Elissa is a floater as well but after last week, she took out her number one rival out of the house and into the jury. If Elissa isn’t in the final two expect her to win America’s Favorite Player.
The Bully Continues Her Attack
Amanda continues to go off the deep end. Her bullying continues to reach new heights. I find it ironic that a few weeks back when speaking to Julie about feeling safe, her response was to not assume that. Fast forward to this week Amanda’s feeling safe and now finds herself up for eviction with her Boy Toy, McCrae. It took five weeks for these houseguests to realize that Amanda needs to go after America was secretly BB MVP have been trying to evict her from the game! Let’s hope third times the charm and we see the Bully sent off to the jury house.
Now if I were a houseguests, I would continue to use any prizes the other houseguests may win to my advantage in getting them evicted out of the house. Judd and McCrae have won cash and now Spencer, after winning a trip to the Bahamas has won $10,000. If Amanda was smart she would use that to get GinaMarie to possible consider evicting one of them out of the game. Also after a few weeks of female evictions, the guys have taken the numbers. Remember back in the beginning when Elissa wanted to have an all female alliance, well look how that turned out and now she’s one of three ladies left in the game. Also the jury should remember to take prizes into consideration as well because it’s not about winning a trip to the Bahamas or winning small cash prizes, it’s about bragging rights for winning Big Brother and earning $500,000. Besides the small prizes will still be taxed, so why not just win the ultimate prize of the show and be taxed on that. I hope these houseguests have a good financial adviser helping them out, I know I would and have one! I miss the days when luxury competitions were about earning rewards for the house, like fitness equipment or a hot tub. Many fans, myself include would like some of the aspects of the show to go to a “back to basics” format with less controversial people and more game players.
Prediction For POV
I wonder if McCrae would give up the POV to Amanda if he wins? My answer would be false! McCrae is in it to win and he has to protect himself over Amanda. Besides McManda is a full on Showmance that I really don’t expect to last after the show. After GinaMarie’s “dynamic” nomination speech, I believe McCrae has a fire relit in him to compete. I expect and predict that he’ll win POV, then use it to save himself. But this won’t happen after a whole montage of Amanda pouting, crying and nagging that “it’s not fair,” “use it on me,” “I’m the bigger threat,” or some ridiculous excuse for McCrae to use on her other than himself. If McCrae does use it on Amanda, I would lose all hope for his gameplay and will have to give credit to Amanda for saving herself once again. If the POV is used, I expect Spencer to be the replacement nominee as the “pawn.”
Tune in tomorrow at 8 p.m. on CBS 62 to see who wins! Please continue to comment, Tweet, Facebook, or email me! I love to hear from the readers!
