Well that was a frustrating morning. My website was having some issues, and I had to figure out what it was before the live show tonight. It seems to be working OK now, but I have a feeling it will crash right as Big Brother goes live.. because that’s what it does. I paid for a really strong server this summer but for some reason it still sucks. Oh well, hopefully it will be better next year.
As a result of the server problems, I haven’t had a minute to watch the feeds, so my prediction is going to be leading up to today. Hopefully there wasn’t a major flip in the house, mostly because I hate getting predictions wrong!
I think I forgot to mention in my previous post, Aaryn drank the nail polish remover because she thought it was her water. I’d laugh, but I can’t count the amount of times I’ve picked something up only to stop myself just before drinking gross stuff. The stress involved with the Big Brother house, I’d probably be medically removed by day 10.
(random note: I have a few errands to run tomorrow afternoon. I will have an update thread, but it will be updated sporadically throughout the day)
With the week of doing live updates in addition to recaps, I feel there isn’t much else to recap here, so I’ll just get to my predictions…
Votes to leave:
Amanda – Helen
Andy – Helen
Elissa – Spencer
GinaMarie – Helen
McCrae – Helen
Helen should be walking out of the house in a 4-1 vote.
If you weren’t paying attention last week, she’ll be turning right around and joining Judd, Candice and Jessie in some sort of competition to re-enter the house as a full member. This is the first time in Big Brother (US) history that someone from the jury re-entered the house, so that should be pretty interesting. Most of the time it has happened within the first few weeks of the season, and the numbers are there to just boot them again. With only 3 votes to get evicted, it’s a bit easier for that person to actually have a shot.
Let’s take a quick look at the potential returnees….
Jessie – If she returns, there is no doubt in my mind that Amanda will snatch her right up until the HoH competition is complete. If Jessie doesn’t win HoH, she’ll likely be nominated and evicted, although because of Elissa, that Jessie could go next week instead.
Candice – Similar to Jessie. Big Brother should just install a revolving front door if Jessie or Candice win the competition. The biggest question will be whether or not Elissa will go before or after them.
Judd – Out of all the returnees, Judd is the only one who has a chance to survive without the use of competitions. Aaryn has been a bit tense with Amanda lately, and I can easily see Judd slipping back into his role in their alliance, replacing the person who replaced him. I don’t think Judd will be thrilled to do this, and he’ll probably try to work with Spencer, Elissa and maybe Aaryn/GM to get out McCranda, but that will still be a tough one.
Helen – If Helen returns tonight, she is going to fall right back into her role of Elissa’s ally. On the positive side, that’s 1/4 of the house working together during HoH and veto competitions, but on the negative side, I don’t see how Helen coming back would result in anything different than her leaving. This basically just gives her and Elissa a chance to win HoH and flip the house.
