The Goof Troop took control of the HoH this week, although if it were up to Judd, that wouldn’t have happened. He tried to throw the final tiebreaking question, but apparently McCrae and Kaitlin were worse guessers than he is. He seemed ok with it until Julie dropped the ‘expect the unexpected’ line before signing off, and this resulted in a lot of panic and speculation throughout the night. They know a twist is coming, they just don’t know what… yet
Who will be walking out that door on Thursday night is a tricky question, as is who will even be nominated. There was a lot of discussion on that last night with Judd, Amanda and crew, but so far they have not really reached a conclusive first two. Right now it seems like two of the three mean girls, but Judd has promised Aaryn he wouldn’t put her up, which will make him a liar if he does. The overall goal still seems to get Howard out this week, so the plan is to do a backdoor attempt while thinking they still have full control over the MVP. Little do they realize, the twist is that America is now just voting for the 3rd nominee instead of an MVP.
I’ve been trying to figure out why they changed it, and it came down to 4 reasons (with my % of being accurate)
1. They had this planned all along – 20%
2. They forgot to prevent back to back MVP winners, and didn’t want Elissa to keep winning – 50%
3. They are going to keep letting us vote for Aaryn as the 3rd nominee until she’s out – 20%
4. This has the chance for some extreme drama when the mvp nom is someone random (because Aaryn may already be up), which creates a lot of drama in the house – 10%
I know a lot of people are going to pick #3, but I just don’t see it. Aaryn is very hated in the house, was recently nominated and the game is still super early. I have no doubt it would be a PR nightmare if she actually won the game, but I don’t see that happening at all. I’d be willing to bet BB also sees it, so keeping her around a few more weeks for ratings isn’t a bad idea. My best guess is they just didn’t think about Elissa locking it down every week, especially considering she’s done next to nothing in the house.
Anyway, my fan broke last night, it’s 100 degrees here, and thanks to your donations over the past few days, I can run out and get a new one! You guys are life savers, as it was a miserable sleep last night. Also, havenot competition is going on, which made me think of this poll….
3:00pm – Judd is making the rounds with the mean girls because he’s still struggling on his decision on nominations. The MVP twist has him confused, he is at the point where he wants to put up Aaryn so he has control over that nomination. This means the MVP will be powerless to deal with Aaryn, and he (Judd) can try to get his new buddy off the block if he wins PoV.
Note, confirmed two have-nots so far. Spencer and Andy. Rumors of a few others. Will put up top when I confirm other 2
3:30pm – Judd to the DR, nominations are likely soon. Right now it seems Aaryn and Kaitlin will be on the block, but that can change over a tear or two by Helen
5:17pm – Trivia for the nomination ceremony. When they called Judd into the DR about an hour ago, I thought nominations were going to be soon, I guess I was wrong. Oh well, when feeds come back up, I will let you know who is nominated!
