Well it’s about time that we see Amanda & McCrae having to face each other. Although I was expecting chivalry from McCrae…NOT! This is a game and not a reality show about finding a significant other or potential lover. It’s about winning a half million dollars and being crowned the winner of Big Brother. Along the way I feel both Amanda and McCrae have lost that spark. I’m over the Exterminator Alliance because it has four floaters and they’re finally making some big moves. After last night’s episode, I just want to yell the same voice Amanda has said to all the past houseguest she’s evicted on her possible eviction this week, “Bye!”
Amanda’s Meltdown & The Exterminators
How can this really be a blindside for Amanda & McCrae? Call me crazy, but Amanda has said it earlier that if you feel safe, you shouldn’t and well she felt safe. Apparently she can’t listen to her own advice after being interviewed by Julie Chen. After the nomination ceremony, Amanda goes on the war path as always when she somehow doesn’t get her way. It’s like she’s in a three step program of crazy; first step – cry, second step – accuse/threaten, third step – defeat and repeat as many times as needed. For Amanda to say McManda is one of the longest showmances to survive, clearly she forgot about Diane & Drew from Season 5. If I was Amanda I would have been trying to make deals with houseguests as well as GinaMarie to fight to stay in the house. But as always, Amanda cried about it for a bit, then started to accuse & threaten others and lastly admitting defeat and wanting to be a quitter. It was nice to see both Amanda and McCrae off their high horses and feeling the heat of nominations.
The Exterminators bother me because the whole alliance consists of all floaters. Waiting until the last few weeks to final make some big moves in the game. But to justify the last few weeks before the finale as a strong reason one of the exterminators should win is preposterous. I would have liked to have seen them actually compete earlier but as the game progressed only the socially cunning or physically least threatening survived. So with that birth the Exterminator Alliance and their little dance or handshake is quite ridiculous.
Andy Getting Caught & POV
I really can not stand Andy’s game play of playing both sides. Elissa is catching on to Andy and should be careful with a double eviction looming. I was glad to see that Andy was being exposed as the Rat that he is. Funny how Spencer just walks right into the room with Amanda & Andy, while Elissa runs off and to cause some drama tells Amanda that Elissa was listening in. Which in Spencer’s part was a smart move to get people riled up accusing each other and moving the target away from himself.
The POV competition looked to be an easy challenge, but it wasn’t. The houseguests would have to know how to keep balance and how to throw a bowling ball. I didn’t feel sorry that Amanda had to go three times in a row to fight for survival during the POV competitions. I was surprised that when GinaMarie was talking to Andy about him going up against Amanda that McCrae didn’t call them out on that then. In the end McCrae pulled of a win and did one of the smartest moves this season, by not using the veto on his showmance Amanda and on himself. At least we see McCrae is still playing for the title and the cash prize.
Prediction For Eviction
Duh! Amanda! Bye! This will also be a non unanimous vote as McCrae will likely favor to vote against Spencer than his showmance. I would be surprised if McCrae voted with the house. I hope we also see some clips from the Jury house now and what they’re up to during tonight’s live eviction episode.
Prediction For Double Eviction HOH, POV & Eviction
I predict Elissa to win HOH during the double eviction, nominate McCrae and Spencer. McCrae wins POV and Elissa replaces McCrae with Andy. Then by a unanimous vote, Andy is evicted from the Big Brother house.
Prediction For HOH Post Double Eviction
If Judd survives the double eviction, I predict he’ll be next week’s HOH.
Tune in tonight at 9 p.m. on CBS 62 to see what happens and if Amanda or Spencer leave the house with a class or with a bang?
