Before I begin my predictions, the highlight of the feeds last night was at 11:53pm. Helen said she was going to go down in 5 minutes, and a random ‘That’s what she said’ appeared over the speakers. That line never gets old, and I love when production has a random sense of humor.
I guess it’s pretty sad when the highlight of the feeds was a random line over the speakers, but meltdown aside, it’s been that type of week. Watching the CBS episode of Big Brother last night reminded me of the big moves Andy could have made this week, and reminded me how sad I am that a perfect opportunity was wasted. I said in my last post, you can’t blame Jessie for at least trying, and she’ll be leaving the house as one of the few girls this season who can show their face in public when it’s over.
Another comment on the episode and the week, it’s funny listening to Helen, McCrae and Andy talk about their secret alliance considering what they’re saying is 100% true. It’s just too bad only 33% of that alliance actually believes it. Even a bitter jury would vote for Amanda over Andy, McCrae or anyone else, simply because she’s played a great game whether you like her or not. To be able to control the house like she does without winning any challenges is impressive. Sure, she does say a lot of dumb things, and has grown more annoying over the season, but she is a good player.
When you consider her ability to even take others ideas and claim them as her own, I can’t see how she’d lose in the finals. Look at the veto competition thing, she basically went ahead and took full credit for ‘the plan’, but McCrae had a large part in it as well. He was the one who brought up the competition, and mentioned folding each round. Amanda took it, made it her plan and got upset when Spencer didn’t follow along with it. It’s certainly an ‘evil dick’ bully tactic, but you know what? It’s working and working really well on this house.
The sad part of it all, if and when Amanda wins, there is about a 5% chance of her and McCrae staying together. If he is content with going to the final 2 with her, good for him, but hopefully he’s content with 2nd place. This isn’t a Jeff/Jordan, Brendon/Rachel situation where they’re both ‘winners’ because they remain together. I think there is a bigger chance Helen and Elissa will hook up than there is McCrae/Amanda staying together when the season is over, but who knows? Maybe I’m wrong?
Anyway, here are the easy predictions for tonight:
Aaryn – Jessie
Amanda – Jessie
Elissa – Jessie
GinaMarie – Jessie
Helen – Jessie
McCrae – Jessie
Another vote, another unanimous outcome. It’s kind of getting old. At this point, I don’t know who I want to win HoH tonight. Who has the potential to create the biggest waves next week? Jessie was probably the only one, but she’ll be in jury.
One thing I can guarantee, Jessie won’t be on the block next to Spencer next week…
