First off, when I uploaded this photo, I noticed I have far too many screenshots of Aaryn in the same spot. I know she’s been HoH pretty much all season, but you’d think she would get up from the bed once in awhile. I don’t know who has spent more time in bed this season, Aaryn, Amanda/McCrae or Candice.
With that out of the way, let’s get to the highlights from last night after I pulled an Aaryn and went to my own bed.
Last week, the house did a practice run of trying to blindside someone when they put Jessie on the block. Needles to say, they failed pretty bad and Jessie was loosing her mind by Tuesday. Did the house learn anything from their mistakes with Jessie when they tried the same to Helen this week? Based on Helen’s massive campaign effort last night, I’m going to say no.
It didn’t take long for Helen to see the differences in people as soon as she was on the block. Amanda talked to her less, McCrae has been more ‘wishy washy’, and even Andy has been more sneaky than usual. This prompted Helen to sit down with Aaryn yesterday afternoon and chat about the situation in the house. Helen called it a ‘come to Jesus moment’, while it appears Aaryn was just humoring her. A fake final 4 alliance was formed between Aaryn/Andy/Helen/Elissa in the afternoon, and by the evening, Amanda knew all about it.
Amanda and Helen to have a somewhat heated discussion about the situation which I covered in the Sunday Highlight thread. Once things settled down in the house, I went to bed, but I guess things were not settled for too long. Flashback to 11:05pm to see Aaryn getting worked up over a little tiff she had with Amanda that night. I guess the fish-gate incident was brought up once again, so this pissed off Aaryn and she retreated to the HoH room. Amanda eventually went up after her, and the two had a little exchange where nothing was really accomplished.
When Amanda left the room, Aaryn sat in her HoH bed for awhile chatting with Andy, and said things how she can backdoor Amanda this week and have GM and Elissa vote her out (I’m not sure where the 3rd vote would be unless she was counting on Andy or Spencer). Andy basically played peacemaker all night and told her what a good thing they had, and how the new final 3 alliance should be him, Aaryn and GM. The pair talked about that, and Aaryn eventually agreed that Amanda wouldn’t be the renom this week. The question will be whether or not Andy runs to Amanda about this new F3 deal, or if he was serious about it.
If you’re a Helen/Elissa fan, things were probably starting to head in the right direction until Aaryn had her change of heart once again. With the PoV meeting today, time is running out for Helen to convince Aaryn to make a big move. Once Spencer goes on the block, it will be pretty hard for the plan to change. Andy would become a possible huge swing vote this week, but he is pretty firmly attached to Amanda, so he’ll do whatever she wants in the end. I expect Helen to be walking out that door on Thursday night, but little does she realize she’ll be heading right back in to compete with the other jury members. That should make for an interesting live show this week!
With that, I’m going to watch Breaking Bad then start a Monday Updates thread!
