We have waited 63 days for something exciting to happen, and while we have had a few fun nights (especially fight night), this season has mostly been a snoozer. Nobody likes to hear it, but Amanda has a BostonRob-like grip on the house at the moment and it’s been a fairly slow season because of it. Big personalities like Jeremy barely had time for a cup of coffee in the house, and when big moves could be made, they weren’t.
Tonight could change all of that as one of the four current jury members will be competing to re-enter the house and get back to following Amanda’s lead… err, I mean playing Big Brother. Hopefully Julie Chen has something up her sleeve for protection because there is about a 98% chance whoever comes back in will be on the block as early as tomorrow. Giving them HoH would be a fun twist, but giving them a week immunity may be nice as well, just so they can stir things up a bit. If they’re not protected tonight, well this twist will be a dud.
If you want to see how the house reacts to the jury member coming back, sign up to the live feeds right here. I haven’t been pushing the feeds much because they’ve been pretty dull to watch, but I have a feeling tonight should be a good one.
Now on to the updates!
6:00pm – Big Brother is on! Julie Chen announces the juror returning, but now they’re going to show some highlights of the week for a bit.
6:05pm – Julie brings up the juror part again, but resumes highlights.
6:15pm – Highlights done and we’re off to commercials. They only played a brief clip of the Amanda/Elissa argument.
6:18pm – We’re back, and Julie shows the house highlights of the havenot competition. It was a pretty funny comp, but the way Andy/Spencer re-told it to each other was even better. Andy joked they should have slapped Aaryn and asked if she found the slap machine (complete joke – relax).
6:21pm – Voting time:
Amanda – Helen
Andy – Helen
Elissa – Spencer
GinaMarie – Helen
McCrae – Helen
Helen has been evicted 4-1
6:30pm – Helenis now talking to Julie. Helen is giving the audience a motivational speech about taking players out sooner. I wonder if Helen gives advice to everyone she speaks to.
6:35pm – After a long talk by Helen, Julie finally tells her that she has a chance to get back into the house. Helen takes it very well, bounces around and asks for food (she’s been a have-not).
6:40pm – Julie shows clips from the jury house. Finally, I love these clips
6:45pm – After the commercial break, we’ll find out who gets to go back in. Julie tells the house about the juror twist. The jurors enter the house, share hugs, Amanda is quite shocked, then Helen races to the bathroom. Everyone is heading outside for the competition and then HoH competition. I assume it’s going to be endurance
6:55pm – Weird endurance/skill competition. Everyone is on the wall, and it is moving around a little bit. They’re being sprayed with water during it. The reason it’s not fully endurance is they just have to catch 10 balls thrown at them to win. It’s unknown how often the balls will be thrown, but Jessie caught the first one.
I am going to create a new thread to follow the endurance challenge.
