I will be the first to admit, Aaryn was one tricky player this season. By tricky, I mean she was willing to say anything and sell her soul to anyone for a few more weeks. Aaryn probably should have gone home on day 35, but she played the game, Kaitlin didn’t, and Aaryn is still in the Big Brother house today… for a few more hours at least.
By making deals wherever she could, this gave Aaryn about 2 months worth of weekly paychecks from Big Brother (the cast are paid $1k/week stipend, like most reality show contestants), and also some time to do damage control on her personality. While I don’t expect a roaring applause for Aaryn as she sits next to Julie Chen tonight, I can easily say the response will be better from both the crowd, and Julie, than it would have been a month ago.
When Kaitlin sat next to Julie, she faced some pretty tough and uncomfortable questions that I never would have expected. Had it been Aaryn, I can only imagine the questions would have been worse, as she was the leader of the ‘Mean Girls’. Since her partner in crime left the house, Aaryn has mostly kept her ignorant comments to herself, and let a new person take over as the ‘most hated’ – Amanda.
Based on that, I think the predictions will be pretty obvious….
Amanda – Aaryn
GinaMarie – Aaryn
Spencer – Aaryn
McCrae – Aaryn
Judd – Aaryn
Another week, another unanimous eviction.
Did you know, since Nick’s eviction in week 2, there have only been 3 votes that went against the house.
Week 3 – Kaitlin for Spencer (she knew Jeremy was going, but couldn’t vote for her showmance. Everyone understood)
Week 5 – Spencer for Candice (Spencer and Howard were friends all season, this was not a surprise)
Week 8 – Elissa for Spencer (there was no way Elissa was voting for Helen, and Spencer even said it in his speech)
There you have it, that’s been the season so far. Once the two blindsides were finished, the only surprise was the double eviction when Judd went home. I think the producers need to sit down this off-season and try to figure out a creative way to shake things up next season. The third nominee was an attempt, but that fell flat when Elissa joined the house and received all the votes.
I’m going to toss up a poll anyway just to see what you guys think….
