After a seemingly boring week in the house, despite the looming presence of Hurricane Amanda just offshore, things ramped up a bit out of nowhere. Flashback to 9:20pm (9/4) to see how it all went down.
Amanda left her diary room session and joined the others in the kitchen as they were playing Jenga. GinaMarie mentioned something about the bedroom situation, and Amanda gave her a smirk/smile (taking a play out of Elissa’s book) and that was enough to flip GM’s lid. When I turned on the feeds to see them arguing, I was almost certain Amanda started it, but to my surprise, it was GM who freaked out and started taking the nasty shots first.
The two pretty much let it all out at that point, taking low blow after low blow on whatever they can think of. Amanda took a lot of shots at GinaMarie’s craziness about Nick, while GM took a lot of shots at Amanda hopping into bed with McCrae when she had a boyfriend heading into the show.
The fight played out a solid 20 minutes before Amanda retreated to the bedroom crying, while GM mockingly shouted ‘Here come the waterworks!’. After stewing in the room for some time, McCrae finally went to join Amanda in the bedroom and she started going off on him for sitting there with a stone look the entire time. She wanted him to defend her, or at the very least try to calm the situation down, but he just sat at the table staring off into space.
It’s hard to blame McCrae at this point considering he’s been trying to coach Amanda into a less aggressive game, and even though she didn’t exactly start it, she could have just walked away instead of stooping to GM’s level. Amanda probably would have done herself some big favors if she sat there and took the shots from GM in front of swing votes like Andy. To take the bait all but sealed her fate for tonight’s live eviction.
I’ll get on a prediction and update thread (if anything happens today) and of course my live eviction thread for tonight.
