Judd is one of the few superfans on the show this season, even though he’s not really portrayed as one on the CBS shows. Both he and McCrae know their stuff when it comes to Big Brother, and clearly weren’t recruited at some bar (*cough* Kaitlin). It is pretty interesting when you carefully listen to the words he says because right now he’s currently on the ‘other side’ of what production wants, and it’s showing.
Starting around 8:50pm, Judd came out of the diary room and was clearly angry for awhile. He basically let it slip he’s upset because he feels DR pushed Elissa to do this move, and he’s probably not wrong. Honestly, with the PR nightmare this season, if they can get in the head of Elissa to make a move to hopefully become one of the final 3, that’s a hell of a lot better than a final 3 consisting of Spencer and GinaMarie… both of whom had issues outside of the house for things they said inside. Their worst nightmare was Aaryn being the 3rd, but they don’t have to worry about that now.
I don’t believe they tell people how to vote, but it’s been said by numerous people outside of the show that when you’re in the house for so long, DR sessions can impact decisions. Imagine talking to the same group of people who would like nothing more than to see you walk out the door, and then talking to a 3rd party who happens to know the ins and outs of what everyone is thinking. Former winner Jun even said that sometimes when they ask you simple questions, you misinterpret that as them giving you a hint or suggesting something.
Anyway, I’m rambling. I don’t know whether the DR influenced Elissa, or how much it did. At this point, unless Andy gets flipped, it won’t matter anyway because Amanda will be walking out the door and there should be a few surprised faces Thursday night. Andy is already planning on blaming the flip on Elissa, but with Elissa giving up collateral to prove she’s telling the truth, Andy could be in trouble. I don’t think either McCrae or Elissa will believe Andy’s story, and if either of them win HoH during the double eviction, it’s a pretty safe bet Andy will be following Amanda to the jury house.
PS – I feel like this is the second or third time that Andy has had to make a game changing decision in the house. I guess it’s easier to be a swing vote when you play all sides of the house…
I’m not going to be able to update much today as I will be traveling to visit my parents who live a few hours away (very short notice). I will check the feeds tonight and probably write a recap post when I’m settled in, and I will also definitely be live blogging the eviction show whether I have to rent a hotel or not to do so.
For now, I leave you with a poll….
