Before I begin the post, a quick reminder – no personal attacks in the comments section. I have had a few complaints about it recently and don’t want to start banning people. I’m very easy going with freedom of speech, but when debates get heated to a point more than Big Brother related and I start losing readers, that’s when I step in. People come here to chat about Big Brother, and there are a lot of differing opinions, especially this season, but if you can’t express your opposing opinion without nasty attacks, this is not the place for you. This is my warning, not to sound like a hardass. I love my readers, love the contributions you give, and it’s my responsibility to not let discussions get out of hand.
With that out of the way, today is the day we get to find out who replaces Spencer on the block (spoiler, it will be Candice!). I know this is going to look absolutely horrible for Aaryn, and even she knows it. On Wednesday night’s episode, I can just picture the tweets that will happen when Spencer is replaced by Candice. This is a reminder to anyone just tuning in, Aaryn has almost no power this week. She gave that up last week in a deal with Amanda and Helen to remain in the house over Kaitlin. She promised them they can choose nominees and replacements this week as long as they vote for her. Sure, she can break the promise, but may as well self evict shortly after.
I know Aaryn has said some pretty stupid things this season, but I will defend anyone who is being bashed over a misunderstanding. Aaryn wanted to put Elissa and Candice on the block this week, and that’s because those are the two people most likely to nominate her next week if they win.
This is turning into a pretty interesting week so far. Howard is the favorite to go home, but by putting Candice on the block, this actually gives a glimmer of hope he can remain in the house. Aaryn respects the hell out of Howard, and most other people like him quite a bit, but a few people are severely threatened by him, so they want him gone. If he can sway those who respect him into votes (or if Spencer can do it for him), we may see Howard in the house for at least another week. I will keep you guys updated on the house reaction after the veto ceremony, so stay tuned for a new post when that is complete!
11:15am – Candice and Jessie are having a heated discussion in the bathroom. It’s going to be getting ugly as the week progresses…
