This is not much of a surprise, but for the 3rd time in a row, Elissa has been named Big Brother MVP. Look, this is nothing against Elissa at all, as I have no grudges against her, Rachel or really anyone. With that said, the MVP twist is becoming silly, especially after this last week. Helen and Amanda absolutely busted their butts to change the outcome of the week, while Elissa did a fraction of the work, but they didn’t win MVP? I don’t understand it.
I’m not going to bash Big Brother, the producers or anything like that. The twist was a pretty decent idea, and has made for some excitement so far this season, but it was just poorly implemented. A basic rule should have been no back to back MVP’s, just like HoH. Another could have been a ‘top 5’ option selected by the producers, but I know that would have just created a big stir with BB conspiracy theorists.
As far as the MVP nominee, it’s pretty clear from watching the feeds that Jeremy is the target and he’ll either be MVP pick or a backdoor option. Aaryn is an alternative, but Jeremy is the guy this week.
Moving on, the blowup last night has resulted in a lot of apologies tonight. Howard and Spencer are going around the house on an ‘I’m sorry’ tour, sitting down with nearly everyone and shedding tears while confessing their sins of playing the game. Lying about having a side alliance was such an awful thing that it resulted in tears from Helen, Andy and many more… really? Am I watching Big Brother here?
What happened to owning up to your strategies? There was nothing wrong with Moving Company, and nothing wrong with keeping it from Helen, Candice and the rest of the house. Keeping a secret alliance a secret is kind of the key part of it. Those who are getting upset from it are clearly either playing it up for more power, or have never seen this show before. You can’t tell me that Helen, Aaryn, Jessie and others went into this game thinking they can trust everything everyone says.
I think what the house is going through is still shock from last night, and they don’t know how to handle it. The tension was bubbling for a week or so, and it finally blew up and splattered like spaghetti sauce all over a clean kitchen. Right now the house is still looking around a bit stunned from the mess, and starting to get ready for the long cleaning process. The question I have is, will they try cooking again, or will they order a pizza?
We will find out over the next few days which course the house will take. I hope they keep trying to cook because nothing makes for a good Big Brother season like some nice tasty tension and drama to go around!
Did I carry my metaphor too long? Anyway, veto competition sounds like it will be held tomorrow, I think Elissa has to make her decision tonight, and I’ll be back giving you updates as soon as I hear them! The house appears to be turning in early tonight, so I think I will too.
