I thought today was going to be a very small recap post based on what I covered throughout the day yesterday – nothing. Apparently after I went to bed, the house had a few drinks which could only mean one thing… drama! Wait, there wasn’t much drama… ok, it could also mean… game talk! There definitely was a lot of that last night around 11:45pm bbt (flashback here). Aaryn has been lightly campaigning all week, but came out with some strong statements to Amanda that had her re-thinking the weekly plan.
Aaryn told Amanda that the best option would be to keep her in the house and she’s stupid if she doesn’t (in so many words). The house is going to be gunning for them, and Aaryn can be somewhat of a shield in front of the duo. I will give her credit, she knows her role and what buttons to push, but it may be too late to save herself. Even though she’s right in being a much bigger target than Andy, McCrae is worried about losing their game-long ally. Little do they know that Andy is also working with Spencer, Judd and GM, but I do think in the end, Andy would remain with Amanda and McCrae… maybe.
McCranda are really between a rock and a hard place this week because Aaryn flat out told them she isn’t voting for either of them to win unless they’re in the f2 together. She is pissed that she used basically all the power she had this season on whatever Amanda wanted, and now she’s being tossed aside. While it sounds like sour grapes, and another bitter jury member, I think it’s just a bluff…. With that said, a short while later, Andy also said that he’d be very upset if he were blindsided this week, and that’s the only way they’d be able to get him out. If they tell him now, he’ll campaign his ass off to stay.
At this point, the duo needs to think which member would be more likely to respect ruthless gameplay. Andy should respect it considering he did the same thing to quite a few people, including one of his closest friends in the house (Helen). Aaryn is less likely to respect it, but I can’t possibly see her voting for Spencer or Elissa to win, so Amanda/McCrae would have to take one of them to the f2 if they wanted her vote. There is a snag however, because if they take Elissa to the f2, she’d likely have the votes from Helen, Candice and possibly even Jessie, GM, and Judd. That would be enough to win if she had all 5.
With ‘The Exterminators’ still talking as an alliance, and people leaving the game pissed at Amanda, things are not looking good for McCranda moving forward. If you’re a fan of the duo, you better be crossing your fingers and toes one of them wins HoH this Thursday because the door is slowly closing on their chances to win it all.
(ps – I am still going through the moderator e-mails. I received a ton and trying to decide on one. Thank you for the e-mails so far!)
