Big Brother 15 – Tuesday Updates

bb15-elissa-listeningI want to make a quick correction from my last post.  I said that Elissa came up with the plan, but I missed the flashback around 10:20pm that had Amanda talking to Elissa and proposing the option.  A lot of people are pointing out how Elissa agreed to the deal after her DR session, and I don’t think that’s coincidence either. Listening to Elissa talk to McCrae last night, she is pretty clueless and scared at this point.   I am pretty sure everyone in the house dissects every question thrown to them in each DR session, and it can influence decisions whether intended or not.

That said, the skeptic inside me says the DR could also ask questions knowing it could manipulate the game, but that’s because I know they have their own interests in mind.  Every TV show wants and needs ratings, and pushing someone like Elissa and Amanda further in the game is a lot better than a GM and Spencer.   Those two in the finals would be like Carolina vs Jacksonville in the Super Bowl (no offense to fans of those teams… all 5 of you – just kidding).

Anyway, not to keep talking about my personal opinion.  I just know if I were in the Big Brother house for 2+ months with people who would like nothing more than to see me walk out the door, I would be in the DR as often as possible trying to pick up any hints or clues I could.  Of course, I’d probably pick up on the wrong stuff and get myself evicted, but that’s why I write about the show instead of compete in it.

Here are the updates:

11:45am – Everyone is still sleeping.  Shocker?  Nope.

12:40pm – Sleep City, USA… aka the Big Brother house

12:55pm – GinaMarie is up and putting on makeup.  I think I should wait a few hours for something interesting to happen.

1:44pm – Elissa has a small talk with Andy in the kitchen about the plans to vote out Spencer.  I can’t believe they don’t see how different Andy acts when he talks about stuff he doesn’t want to do.  He walks away from conversations, gets quiet, etc.

2:23pm – Indoor lock-down.  Elissa and GinaMarie think it’s weird, and it kind of is.  My guess is it will open in a few hours with an HoH thing to practice

The house randomly giving shout-outs to Howard and Aaryn for their birthday today.

2:45pm – McCrae and his new bff Elissa are chatting it up about Thursday.  All of it will be for nothing when Andy sticks with the pest control


Amanda and Elissa then exchange some jewelry as collateral to show they’re being honest about the week.  They hug and separate.  Amanda plans to show Andy it so he can see it’s really happening.

2:55pm – Amanda about Andy – “After everything I did for that f’in kid he better f’in vote for me” … sounds like they know where the leak will be if Amanda goes home.

Judd is wondering if there will be an early eviction this week, but McCrae tells him that’s typically final 4 and Amanda hasn’t received her suitcase yet.

3:00pm – Meeting of the exterminators, but GM has been called to the DR.  I have a feeling both sides are going to worry about Andy this week.  He is the person who will change the outcome of the rest of the season.

3:05pm – Judd hints the DR had influence.  Trying to decipher his mumble ‘She has different ideas every time she comes out of there’. Spencer is worried about Judd’s loyalty… this alliance would last 2 weeks tops if it started at the beginning of the season.  Too much paranoia.

3:15pm – Meetings broke up, Elissa is doing yoga while sounding like Darth Vader, some are eating.  Speaking of eating, be back shortly

3:45pm – Lockdown is over, nothing has changed outside.  The guys discussing Russell Hantz and the flaw in Survivor (and other reality shows) with the bitter jury members.

4:30pm – Andy, McCrae and Amanda are up in the HoH chatting about Thursday.  They are coaching Andy on how to handle a tie (because they think Elissa may be lying)… this should be interesting if Amanda goes and Andy gets off without blame.

5:00pm – Judd mentions how people on Survivor go like 30 days but cry like babies when they see their families, but they’re on day 70+.  McCrae said the living conditions on the island makes it harder, and he said Survivor people probably call them wimps for living in a houses.

5:15pm – Going to take a little break. Something came up.  I will update this thread before I go to bed

8:30pm – Doing a quick check-in.  Amanda is still bff’s with Elissa and chatting game. They don’t think they can trust Andy (which they can’t).  Anyway, have a family issue so updates may be a bit off the next few days but I’ll do my best.

    By no means do I like Amanda at all..but I do like Elissa, with that being said Elissa is like all the other HG in this game, she wants to stay & go as far as she can..she really doesn’t have anyone in the game talking strategy with her..GM, Judd, Spencer & sadly Andy are gunning for her, she will not go far with them, so her only other option is Amanda, McCrae & again either way she’s only trying to get farther than 5th place..if she can get to final 3 or 4 who knows she may at least have a chance of getting to finale.

    I hate that Ratny will be the deciding vote, but like someone posted earlier McCrae should believe that Elissa did vote to keep Amanda & that it was Andy that flipped on them!!

    Finally for once in this game Andy will have to pick a side & betray the other side, I’m loving that bcuz this vote will finally out him for the rat that he is!!

    When did Amanda get married? If it’s just a fake ring why would she care? Therefore she doesn’t have to stick to any plan.

  3. Comments (110)

    To me this isn’t a game because it is unfair I don’t think that CBS know how to play fair they only care about the ratings and how much money they are making with these racist pigs and they don’t care what the fans want writing these comments doesn’t do any good because they don’t read them and they just
    don’t care I guess the only care for racist people and bullies all you
    Amanda and McCrea fans take a hike.

      Interestingly, Julie is on Letterman tonight. I wonder if his questions will be about Big Brother or The Talk.

    • Comments (293)

      Judd says about Amanda: I hate her, I hate Elissa and most of all I hate ghosts.
      A few minutes later, after Andy says Thursday will be rewarding, Judd says, “Unless the ghosts give her a power.”
      Andy says, “They won’t.”

      Are the “ghosts”–the producers?

    Music to my ears Thursday night? Julie Chen “By a vote of 3 to 1…..Amanda….you are safe, Spencer you have been evicted from the Big Brother house, you have one minute to say your goodbyes and gather your belongings.” Oh the looks of shock and awe in that room!!! BOOM!!!

    I have a question that may have been answered earlier today, but I have been taking care of my granddaughter and really do not want to go through all these posts. Did anyone know why GM was directed to her HOH bedroom around 1:27pm BBT and when she opened the door she yelled “yay!” This was on jokers. Do you think she may have gotten pandora’s box? If this has been posted, then please just fill me in. Thanks.

    I think that was the best after dark conversation all season- with Elissa and Amanda…. I hate that Amanda is not onto Andy. I do appreciate how Amanda is right out in your face with what she wants.. as opposed to Andy who smiles and lies to your face..everybody’s face..

    • Comments (1288)

      All of Amanda’s attacks on Elissa last week were part of a plan to keep Andy off the block [he would commiserate and ingratiate himself with Elissa after Amanda upset her]. That attempt did not work and has placed the target on Amanda. She is expecting Andy to repay that loyalty and she may be sadly disappointed.

    suzyq, there is was no reply button by your card, but I wanted to say this: my best friends are black.

    I hate her but still think that Amanda has played her own game. YOU know what your physically capable of doing and she knows herself and sees she is not strong enough to win competitions. What to do? What she has done! She can lie like a champ. Sex doesn’t mean much to her so latch on to some backward player to blunt the hate and plan behind the scenes. How much of the hate is planned? Yes, I think some is really her but remember that she set herself up for a major confrontation with Elissa by yelling, banging on the HOH doors, blowing her horn etc. Why? So Andy could follow up with Elissa and be her protector and savior to keep him off the block. It did not work because Elissa knows Andy is a “RAT” but that was all Amanda doing what she could to protect her people, get GM put up and so save Aaryn..
    This was her plan, Smart. So how much is of what she has done is real. Maybe the racist slams, because that goes back to her basic being but anything else is all game. She is like a cobra who hypnotizes their prey and then strikes. No HG disputed her own claim that she was responsible for 9 people going home.
    Andy had a plan. Again, does he look like he can win anything? He figured “no” that was not how he could win, so how could he stay in the game and become valuable to others. Be a tattletale. Think he has used this before in his real life. He was stupid to tell a few people like Judd but they did not hear or understand what he said and ignored his confession and allowed him to continue to spy. Everyone ignores him as he bounces in and out. His game is made for him.
    Sorry for the long post, but to many of you need to look at how these people made it this far, we have all said of both, they can’t win anything. Yet here they are. McCrea is the one that will hurt after as she has bigger plans and they do not include carrying him as an anchor.

    I hope this is the end of Big Brothers can’t wait until Survivor comes on
    that my best show.

    • Comments (764)

      🙂 Two weeks from tomorrow! On the night this mess ends, Survivor starts!!

      • Comments (1162)

        BB15 is so bad that even when we get a little exciting game play, the thrill is
        over very quickly and then the boring HGs begins boring BB Fans again. Torture!

        Hopefully BB16 is not as long as BB15.
        Just think if the BB15 was using
        the old schedule …….the end would be sooooooo close.
        Or would this be over by now? Ugh!!!!

    • Comments (545)

      The Amazing Race is starting soon also, I like both of them…Big Brother made a LARGE boo boo in their casting of HG this Season.

      As for Big Brother, I will take another look next Summer to see if they have learned anything from this Seasons mistakes.

      • Comments (1076)

        I love Amazing Race. My DVR does not. The show comes on a different time every week and I end up with 1/2 of “The Good Wife” most weeks…LOL…

      • Comments (233)

        I always set the DVR to catch the 2 shows that follow AR and Survivor every week. Then you just have to remember why they are on your ‘recorded list’. 🙂

    • Comments (1076)

      Survivor is my favorite reality show. My best show is when I came in 3rd (win,place,show) at Belmont.

      • Comments (1162)

        Due to Sunday sports, which often run past a projected time, you
        need to DVR, past your favorite shows schedules.
        If CBS is showing a Golfing event or a Football Game, I set the DVR
        for The Amazing Race, The Good Wife and beyond….. for example,
        record The Mentalist as well as the local late night news, sometimes
        even more.
        On some Sundays, it is the only way to DVR some favorite shows in full.

    YEA Elissa is Schooling Amanda on how Disgusting what She did to her was BIG TIME WRONG!!! WAY TO GO ELISSA!!!

  11. Comments (61)

    I cannot believe the conversation between Andy, Spencer & GM right now talking about or rather bashing Elissa =[ How TWO-FACED they All are saying Elissa is always bad mouthing everyone duh You IDIOTS what are You 3 Hypocritical Morons doing RIGHT NOW!!! & Andy talking about his Goodbye Speach for the millionth time just Shut-Up!!! + Spencer’s VULGAR name calling is DISGUSTING as usual with Everyone Happily joining in what I call the “I want to do it but You can’t because We Are Better than You Attitudes !!! btw What do they expect Elissa to do come up to the HOH room & have You All be fake & phony to her acting like You have Her back, how CRUEL are You Andy, GM, Spencer & now sadly add Judd =[ If I was Elissa I would STOP cooking for them & doing the other nice things She does for them NOW!!!

    • Comments (1312)

      Oh, that’s right, Elissa can do no wrong and is a victim of everyone else in the house.

      Meanwhile, she is planning on voting to keep the one person in the house who attacked her family on a personal level. How will Elissa explain that morality move to her son, Reilly.
      “Gee, golly wiz, son, Mommy let a crazy woman bash you on national TV and then I teamed up with her for a little more $$ and camera time – because you know how much Mommy loves fame!!!!

      And Andy, GM and Spencer are the disgusting ones?? Okaaaaayyyy…

      • Comments (1162)

        “Gee, Mommy could have stayed with Crude/Rude Spencer, Rat Andy,
        Unreliable Judd and Disgusting GM, but they had already planned on
        evicting Mommy.
        I was there to play. What could I do? Play the Game!
        Looking around the BBH, I was left with only One Option – joining
        forces with Mean Amanda and Smelly McCrae. Ugh!
        I, also, made certain that I verbally took down Mean Amanda
        for her slurs and hateful comments. She apologized but most
        likely only for her own benefit and I knew that.
        So joining up with McCranda was not ideal but if I wanted to stay in the Game, it was going
        to be my smartest move and at that time, the only move available to me.
        BTW- all of these Scumbags had ridiculed me and those I dearly love.
        None were good choices, so I had to make the best case for myself out of the
        most awful choices available to me.

        Would I have preferred to have Candice, Helen and Jessie there with me?
        Yes- 100%!!!

        Mommy’s Payback to the Scumbags – Becoming the Winner of BB 15!!!”

        “Yes, Reilly, because I want to teach you that fame and money are more important than integrity and scruples. Heck, I even gave her my wedding ring, because I have to prove that I am as good as my sister…”

      • Comments (1162)

        OMG – you’re jealous of Elissa.
        Too funny!!!!

        Why does anyone want to be on Big Brother?
        Fame & Fortune –
        One or Both

        Why select Elissa for your scorn and not the others?
        Did you chastise Helen, also a wife & mother, for being on BB?

        When it comes to judging the values and scruples of the BB15
        HGs, Elissa wins for being the most steadfast to her beliefs and solid
        moral code.
        IF you think you can dispute that, you must not be able
        to comprehend what is happening on BB15.

        I don’t expect Elissa to win BB15, but I can envision her
        taking 2nd place and winning Fan Favorite.
        If that happens, I will think about you and hope
        you have plenty of chocolate milk on hand.
        : )

  12. Comments (27)

    Expanding on the idea that the DR is influencing Ellisa, maybe they suggested to her that she tell Amanda she’s voting to keep her just to prevent an out of control meltdown and self eviction by Amanda.

  13. Comments (293)

    Does anyone think McCrae and Spencer might still be in their original alliance–The Moving Company?

    • Comments (293)

      Before you verbally attack me, remember Danielle and Jason of Big Brother 3.

      • Comments (1076)

        Why would anyone verbally attack you? It’s not like you said McCrae was going to take Spencer to the prom but he refused to be seen in public with a redhead.

      • Comments (293)

        LOL. It was right on the tip of my tongue. But seriously, because they are the only two left of that alliance, it is possible they have kept it secret, but I’m probably giving them too much credit.

      • Comments (1162)

        IMO, you’re giving them too much credit.
        : )

  14. Comments (357)

    WTH is Amanda always talking about Howard for? Is this not the same dude you accused of harassing you? The same on you were soooo scared of Amanda to be in the house with? Let it go and keep it moving! Damage control not working here!!!!!

  15. Comments (1076)

    In all seriousness, what’s with Rodger Federer? He looked sick the other night at the open. I have never seen him so thin before. It was quite disturbing. I hope he is OK. Federer is a class act and it would be so sad if he was seriously ill.

    • Comments (293)

      I may get in trouble for this. You know what happened when I wrote about Breaking Bad.

      • Comments (1076)

        Thanks for the article. That picture of him is from only 3 months ago. He looked about 20 lbs. lighter on Monday night. No healthy person looses that much weight over the summer unless it is intentional or he is sick. He’s a nice guy and I really hope he is OK. And, who cares what these crazy people say about only talking about BB. stevebeans talks about all sorts of stuff and he/she even lets us know when he/she is having family problems. That is what normal people do. And, if you really want to see a black man who is gorgeous and a great actor, Luther is back on BBC America and Idris Elba is well worth watching. I’m watching right now.

      • Comments (1312)

        Can we stick to BB talk – you’re again sounding like someone from the past…

      • Comments (293)

        You’re welcome. Federer does look unwell in the post game interviews. Because I was sure he would beat Robredo, I didn’t watch that match.
        I never started watching Luther because I had so many programs on my list when it debuted. I hear Luther gets a girl and, oh my gosh, she isn’t black! (I think that will put us back on topic–LOL).

    FCC response in me question BB practices a game show:

    “A “game show” in which selected contestants (vs. members of the
    public) participate is governed by Section 509 of Title 47 of the
    United States Code (USC), and regulated by the Department of Justice.
    However ”Big Brother” does not appear to meet the definition of a
    “game show.” Rather, it is a ”for entertainment only” program,
    somewhat similar to professional wrestling in that it is a
    pseudo-contest in which the outcome is fully, or in some measure,

    Well there you have it, it is a rigged show OK, its not a conspiracy theory. It is in the same league as pro wrestling. Saying Amanda was rigged to win is like saying stone cold steve austin, mc foley or the rock and rick flair were rigged to win. Its only inaccurate because it is not a rig it is the intended outcome of the pre-written script.

  17. Comments (143)

    So is that “anonymous” cbs employee who gave their name still a conspiracy theorist?

    I was watching BBAD did you all see Judd giving the cameras the bird I thought that was funny that who he calls the ghost in the house.

    Interesting – McCrae just told Amanda that he believes Elissa will
    vote to keep Amanda, however he isn’t sure about getting Andy’s vote.

    • Comments (1288)

      They might get Andy back with a “nuclear option.” If both Elissa and McCrae tell him that if Amanda goes out both of them plan on targeting him and GM if they win HoH. So he will have to rely on himself, Judd or Spencer winning HoH to be safe.

      On the other hand he can save Amanda, send out Spencer and if Judd wins HoH he will be more interested in going after Elissa or McCranda before he thinks about Andy.

      • Comments (1162)

        Option 3 – McCrae might try to bring Judd into the fold, something
        Andy wouldn’t dream of ever happening.

        Tell Judd how “sketchy & unreliable” Andy’s word is.
        Sure he worked well when he was with McCranda but right
        now, Andy is working to get to the Finale and it is more
        likely Andy would choose Spencer over Judd because Judd
        could win more Jury votes than Andy.

        Judd has little reason to trust Andy and working with
        Elissa, Amanda and McCrae just might be his best option,
        and due its surprise factor, would be considered
        a Big BB Game Move, something Judd’s Game Resume is
        currently lacking.

        If offered, can Judd mull it over and not ask
        Andy his opinion ……LOL

    Slightly off topic: wil heuser’s latest vid is about Aaryn’s eviction
    done as a parody of both BB & the VMAs.

  22. Comments (219)

    Hi all. So, after reading updates here and on the net, it seems Elissa has defected over to the McCranda camp. At first sight, I was thinking, ‘what?!’ But if you’re in the house with an alliance (Andy, Judd, Spencer and GM) and its certain that the major couple is about to be split up, its doesn’t take a genius to realize that Elissa will be the odd woman out.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the Exterminators are treating her a certain way and have made her feel like she needs to grasp onto whoever else is left: McCrae. I hope she wins HOH, so that Andy goes up on the block.

  23. Comments (233)

    Time to shake up the house, and I’m glad Elissa is stirring the pot. She may not last much longer, but I like Judd, too, so maybe he’ll also make it through the DE Thursday. Hoping the evictions will be Amanda/Andy on Thursday, then Spencer and GM, with Judd, McCrae and Elissa in F3. That’s what I think this afternoon, anyway.

    Does anyone else realize how much Ginamarie stuffs her big mouth, god I can’t stand first of all hearing hear chew for god sakes. It’s so disgusting!!! And second she just eats and eats all the freaking time!!!
