Lousy image, but I think the old screenshot captures this week pretty well. Elissa walking away with Nick in the background looking puzzled at what just happened. It’s been that kind of week, heck, that kind of season on Big Brother and it may just be getting better. These houseguests are here to play and win (well most of them), so even though the term is overused with this game… expect the unexpected.
I recapped the week in my last post, but it’s still a bit surprising how everything has turned out, especially considering the one nearly going home pretty much did nothing to stop it. If Elissa is still in the house after tonight, she should be kissing the feet of both Amanda and the person on the block next to her, Helen. This third nominee twist had one of the most unusual things happen in Big Brother history… a nominee spent the entire week campaigning FOR another nominee.
This is probably one of the hardest predictions I had to make in the past few seasons doing this, because even today they were scrambling on the feeds for votes. The vote can literally be anything from 8-3 in favor of Elissa to 8-3 in favor of Nick depending on a few key swing votes. Based on what I’ve seen, however, this is how I picture it going…
Person voting – Their vote to evict
Amanda – Nick
Andy – Nick
Candice – Nick
GinaMarie – Elissa
Howard – Elissa
Jeremy – Elissa
Jessie – Nick
Judd – Nick
Kaitlin – Elissa
McCrae – Nick
Spencer – Elissa
Nick will be voted out by a 6-5-0 vote this week
Some alternatives could happen, however. Here they are:
– Spencer and Howard could accept that it’s happening and just vote with the house, which would turn it 8-3 with Nick leaving
– Jessie could chicken out at the last minute and be a 6-5 vote for Elissa leaving (or 7-4 if she tells Judd)
– McCrae could stick with Moving Company and severe ties with Amanda for a 6-5 vote for Elissa leaving
I am pretty sure my original scenario will play out. I don’t really see Spencer and Howard voting with the house simply because they are still a pretty strong alliance and this is just a setback. If they vote with the house, they may as well start packing because they’ll struggle to make the jury.
There will be a live eviction thread popping up around 8:30pm est, and I will also be tweeting and have a facebook thread about it. It should be an entertaining night, so grab your popcorn, join the live feeds and watch the fireworks after the show!
