In a not so surprising move, Judd was put on the block to replace McCrae. Apparently, that’s about all the excitement we’ll get until the feeds go dark sometime in the next few days (they’ll block out feeds for the eviction until after Wed episode). Before heading to the DR, Judd told his alliance that he’s not going to be campaigning against GM and doesn’t even want to talk to McCrae alone. This is so nobody can twist words around and make it seem like he is campaigning against her… basically he’s going down without a fight. Well done, superfan.
It’s nice to see Judd playing for friendships that he’ll have with random people across the country who will likely rarely talk to him within 5 years. Either that or he thinks a miracle will happen and they’ll vote out a beaten up GM, and he’s trying to get her vote if he makes the F2. I’m going to guess that’s his plan, or at least I’m going to hope it is. It would be a real pathetic way to end the season for a guy who has waited his entire life to play the game.
I understand Judd is very bitter at production this season, and may never watch the show again going forward. He feels some shady stuff has gone down, and based on the comments every post, he’s not alone. I’m sure it’s productions dream to have a bunch of floaters, boring people, and hated cast members make the final 4. Sure, some had an advantage over others (like Elissa winning MVP because of her DNA), some things have been pretty questionable (like Elissa agreeing to the Amanda deal after her DR session), and some pretty unfair (again, like Elissa allowed to use thicker blankets while a havenot).
The problem with that is, that’s reality TV these days. If you don’t think production tries to influence the outcome of every show to keep entertaining characters in the season longer, you’re kidding yourself. It seems every show I watch these days ends up having some ‘villain’ who everyone hates, or ‘fan favorite’ everyone likes, yet the cast keep both of them around as long as possible. It’s the only way I can explain how returning members either win, or come pretty damn close to winning whether on Survivor or Big Brother (Survivor is notorious for that, which is why the show has tanked pretty bad the past seasons).
I may use this as an update thread for anything that happens today, but expect a lot of sitting around doing nothing in the house.
– Spencer is trying to reassure GinaMarie that they’re together. GM is bashing Judd how he just gives up so easy and often. So if Judd isn’t campaigning against GM, she’s working against him
– GM called to DR shortly after Judd enters the HoH room. Spencer is now reassuring Judd he’s safe if it’s a tie vote this week
