I 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.
