Big Brother 15 – Another Week, More MVP Paranoia

bb15-howard-speech

Update: Wow, big news out of the Big Brother house today.  Apparently Amanda was named the MVP nominee which could possibly create a lot of drama inside the house this week.  I’m still hosting the baby shower, but I’ll be posting much more details about this and the PoV a little later.  Sorry about the lack of updates today.

At 11:27pm last night, Howard decided to call an impromptu house meeting, which turned out to be more awkward than enlightening. Don’t get me wrong, Howard appears to be a pretty solid, stand up guy, but his public speaking can use some work.  Watch the speech here, and use the flashback feature.

Once it was over, people spent a majority of the time trying to figure out what he was actually saying versus absorbing his words.  That’s never a sign of a good speech, but hey at least he got whatever it is he had to say off his chest.  I’m no great speech writer either, but I’m going to try and decode what we really wanted to say…

“look, I feel like an ass for swearing on the bible, outside of the game I never would have done that, and I hope you don’t hold that against me.  Also, despite the fact that Aaryn has said some pretty shitty things in the house, I respect that she had to put me on the block because she was forced to by Amanda. This is an eye opener for you guys to see who is actually running the house, and it’s best to take that out before you watch her walk away with your prize money at the end”

I think wording it the way I did would have created some massive drama, but it also may have helped Howard remain in the game (depending on the MVP nominee).  The house can see she’s a big threat, they’ve discussed it, but every week they sit on their hands is another week they lose the numbers to get her out.  Unless Andy, Helen and Judd flip as soon as this week, Amanda should be cruising to the final 4.

While I’m on that subject, I’ve seen a lot of people mention this theory that it’s rigged for Amanda to win this year. Apparently some anonymous person posted how Amanda is bffs with the producer and it’s a guarantee she’s going to win this year.  I call bull on that.  Every year I see people say certain aspects are rigged, including silly things like Jeff (BB’s sweetheart) given fewer shoes in some competition he had to win (the comp was to search for shoes in a pile of balls).   His fans said that BB wanted him out, but why would they?  They love him.  He’s a charming, funny guy who may say dumb things on occasion, but he’s the perfect type of person they’d like to win the game.

I look at the Amanda situation like people claiming it’s rigged for the Yankees, Patriots or Heat to win championships.   By saying that about strong teams that have a good chance at winning every year, it’s so much easier to ‘prove’ your theory correct if they win.  I want to see someone claim the game is rigged in favor of Jessie or Candice, and then I’ll believe it if they win (nothing against those two, they’re both just kind of floating along).    Yes, Amanda worked on some show ‘Big Shot Live’, and there is a very good chance that helped her get ON the show, but the producers are not stupid enough to rig the game like that.  They’re not going to risk 15 seasons of history for a person who used to do occasional reporting on a show nobody has ever heard of.

That’s my take on the Amanda rigging situation.  Disagree with it if you want, but I won’t be talking about it again because it’s silly.

With that out of the way, MVP nominee and Veto should happen today.  There is plenty of paranoia on who the MVP will be this week, and I am at a loss for who could be the nominee at this point.  I’m going to guess Elissa once again, or maybe Amanda.  I am hoping Amanda just for the massive amount of drama that would bring, and I love drama like mosquitoes love ruining my summer nights.


Comment Policy

I don't want to moderate every single comment on this blog, so please don't make me have to. Please do not bash other people for their opinions, also don't swear like Amanda. Once in awhile is ok, but every other word is not (kids can read this).

The obvious stuff is also there... no attacks, threats, etc. No racist remarks, etc. Use common sense and talk to people like you'd talk to your grandmother who is a Big Brother fan

Thank you!

    I hope Amanda goes up too. Even though she has the votes to stay (unless something huge changes that) the drama trying to figure out why she was put up can be fun to watch. They pretty much know it’s America’s vote so maybe she’ll quite down a little if she sees America wants her on the block.

      i agree. i hope amanda is the 3rd nominee. i’ve voted for her as the mvp nominee.

      if she’s not nominated (or evicted in the next 2 weeks, well the rumours that bb15 is rigged for Amanda to win.

          You’re correct. Amanda hasn’t won any competitions. And yet she has managed to control every HOH (and their choices) since the beginning. That entire house can’t be that stupid not to realize Amanda has been in their ear continually telling them what decisions to make. And, they’ve faced her anger when they’ve dared not to comply with her instructions. Case in point: Elissa when she refused to nominate Howard. Anyone who doesn’t do her bidding is next on her list for elimination. Amanda needs to go. I hope the house gets a shakeup this week and Amanda finds herself eliminated. Enough of her entitlement attitude. Her elimination this week would also squash the “rigged for Amanda to win” rumors.

      I agree. I hope Amanda goes up too. I’m not sure if I want to see everyone rally together and flip to get her out (it would be smart of them to do so), because she is entertaining and I like her. The only reason she’s able to run the house is because people let her. She’s getting a lot of heat for it, but come on, every time someone gets some power or info they run to Amanda first.

      What I’m hesitant about, is everyone blaming MVP on Elissa. That would be horrible for her since Amanda is such a big threat, if she didn’t get knocked out (and even if she did), it might seal the deal for Elissa going home because they’ll think at any point they could be targeted by her next.

      At any rate, I think this week should be interesting :)

      Self-centered Amanda will refuse to accept that it was America, but somebody in the house was the MVP, probably harass Elissa for the remainder of the week as the culprit. After all how could America not like her egotistic ways.

        IF Amanda is chosen as the MVP ……you’re right about her never believing America doing it
        to her.
        She might choose to go after Elissa as the culprit or she’ll go after Candice.
        After all, she hates Candice. In fact yesterday, she said she would like “to KILL HER!”
        And then, followed that up with calling her a “bit*ch face cu*t.” Like the other
        MEAN GIRLS, Amanda never said those hateful words to Candice.

        AND, SHE THINKS AMERICA FINDS HER COMMENTS FUNNY!!!!!!
        She is suffering from delusion….BIG TIME!

            I think this blog is a good consensus of how America is thinking, odds are good she will eventually be put up on the block since we see and hear it all literally 24hrs via the Live Cam subscribers relaying the highlights to us like Steve Beans, who does a pro job synopsis of whats up.

        “Self-centered Amanda”? How so? Please elaborate. I haven’t seen ANYTHING from her that shows evidence of being “self-centered.” The only “self-centered” one I’ve seen on the show is Aaryn. Amanda is playing a great game. As she said, “I’M playing Big Brother. What game are YOU playing?”

            I will agree that Amanda is playing the best game, she has controlled the house the whole time, and hasn’t won crap. But, she has really managed to go from someone who has a since of humor to making some pretty horrible remarks. As mentioned above, she’s made horrible comments against Elissa and Candice, wanting to cause them physical harm, upto and including a rape comment.
            I’ve tried to like her, she is gaming, but, I can’t continue to support someone who keeps saying that sort of thing.

          I wouldn’t say Amanda is any more self-centered than most of the other house guests. She is aggressive, loud, and narrow-minded (she is like a dog with a bone as far as getting Howard out), but she does seem to show empathy to others in the house. That is not being self-centered.

      I’m glad he decided to give a speech. I think it makes it interesting for it to be out in the open. It will solidify everyone’s opinions about Amanda’s power in the house. For Howard to say that in front of the Amanda lovers no matter how inelegant it was, is such a risky move. They either love him for it or hate him. I actually like the fact he said it bluntly without crème because it allows the truth to sink in much deeper than being polite. Anyway, we’ll see what happens =).

    A new fun thread cuz I’m tired of all the negativity…
    If you were on Jury…let’s say the house waits too long to make their move and “McCranda” makes it to the final two. Do you think the other houseguests would vote for her or McCrae?
    If I was on Jury, I would vote for Amanda, and I think the house would too.

    What about if it’s Judd and Jessie? (not likely, but…)
    I would vote for Jessie and I think the houseguests would vote for Judd.

    Helen and Elissa? (if Elissa doesn’t totally screw it up)
    I would vote for Helen and I think the houseguests would too.
    Any thoughts?

    • Christina says:

      Unless McCrae does something horrible, I’d vote for him. 2 reasons, he’s actually won something (but needs to start winning more) and because I couldn’t in good concience vote for Amanda.
      I’d vote for Judd 100%, again he’s actually won something, and Jessie, well, she’s nice and all, but Judd is super nice too, but she’s basically a floater.
      Helen and Elissa is the only one I couldn’t say for sure right now. They’ve both won 1 thing each. If one of them wins more I’d pull for that one. Personally I like Elissa better, even with the break down the other day, and I just don’t like that Helen seems to think she can use guilt on EVERYONE.

    Hope there is one of the other twists this week but doubt is since CBS didn’t announce it like they usually do… but one could hope.
    And I agree with stevebeans that the Amanda rumor is just that… a rumor… but wonder is small small truth ignited it?
    I think it is great we don’t know for certain the next evicted as in past years… so that makes it an interesting season.
    Could go without the extra amounts of bashing that has been going on.

        If GM makes it to final two, then all the hypocrites that scream injustice for the racial comments need to sit down and shut it.

        She has been more offensive than Aaryn, she was the one that made the Asian comment about nails that Aaryn added on to and used the N word to note a highly offensive remark about government assistance but all the posters on here rarely bring her up…
        and oh.. did you know that GM noted she had eye shadow for colored people.. ya, that was sweet Thursday night…

          I for one try to remind everyone that she’s just as bad if not worse than Aaryn. Aaryn has said more, but I think what GM has said is worse. She’s terrible. I think people just don’t consider her because she should be super easy to pick off. She hasn’t even come close to winning anything.

    they are hoping no one else did.

    Amanda HAS to go up. If you look at the poll on Big Brother Network site, she’s leading everyone by more than double the votes! If Elissa or GM go up, they are rigging it.

        I don’t believe in rigging competitions. Nobody can interfere with them in such short time. Now picking nominations or America’s vote is a different story. The producers can switch the votes/lie about who is chosen. It’s not hard to see that Amanda is the one chosen to be nominated by America.

                He said he has a friend that runs dog fights out of his house. He said that’s smarter than doing it in the woods because its harder to get caught.

                Then he talked in detail about the fights including an exact price for a shock collar you can get to pull your dog off before it kills the other dog. He finally talked about the money involved and said “if you got a prime time dog, I’ll put 20k on it tonight”

                He never flat out confesses to it like it’s a court of law, but he definitely talks about betting on dog fights.

          Real Estate Agents are self-employed, however if they work for a Real Estate
          Brokerage (Firm), they can lose their employment within that firm for any number
          of reasons and Amanda’s vicious comments on BB would be a total embarrassment
          for any reputable Real Estate Brokerage.

    all i have to say is that i am sick of everyone ragging amanda because she’s “running” the house. now i don’t have live feeds so i am not privy to all of her behaviors but when dr. will and mike boogie completely ran the house and played everyone it was awesome and everyone loved them. why is amanda being treated diffferently? please someone explain to me the difference. may i also add i am not rooting for amanda hardcore or anything, i am just confused by people not approving of her game. in my opinion she is doing it right. i’d rather back someone like her who is playing well and actually paying the game instead of just following the house. imo, thats good gameplay to have everyone under her thumb.

          I’m carrying a grudge against those bigots, and I’d like to see them go out one-by-one: Amanda, Aaryn, GM, Spencer. Wasn’t McCrae laughing heartily at Amanda’s throat-slitting, anal raping scenario about Elissa? Truly sick. Then they can finish the game with people who are at least a step or two above that filth. It feels like CBS was giving fans the opportunity to clean house. It would be great if fans would say THIS IS NOT OK.

    Amanda told Jessie and Aaryn that she wants them to drop out of the competition at
    certain times, so she can win the Veto.

    Looks like Amanda isn’t able to play at anything with integrity.
    She is a total loser!

      Omg really? I hope they don’t throw it. POV can be an amazing tool even if Jessie and aaryn can’t go up. And how does Jessie know that MVP won’t just put her up for saving Amanda or throwing the competition for Amanda.

        I so totally agree with you! It would be a bad move for Jessie not to play for veto AND keep the nominations the same. It’s not likely that she is second runner up for MVP nominee but to risk it is not worth it IMO.

    What is faster than a speeding bullet? Andy trying to get from room to room before he misses any of the conversation. It is starting to get a little annoying…..everywhere you look there is Andy. Instead of find Waldo….find Andy lol.

      LMAO! I commented the same thing a couple days ago. It’s just uncanny how many conversations that guy can butt into every day. It’s like there are two of him in the house!!

        I know it is crazy. Today he was in the HOH and then I’m not sure I think he flew off the balcony to get to the kitchen to be part of that conversation lol.

    Putting Howard and Spencer up isn’t such a bad move, and Amanda right next to them on the chopping block is great. If Amanda is next to them it will be a VERY interesting Power of Veto competition. That’s for sure.

    If Helen/Andy don’t take advantage of getting Amanda out this week then they deserve the third and fourth place they end up with.

      I think he being up might be enough to kick start the house and make them realize that they won’t have too many chances to get her out. If she doesn’t get VETO (assuming McCrae isn’t playing Veto and can’t get it for her) then it’s the perfect time to strike.
      I have to say, if they do get her out, I think there is a good chance that Helen will take her place as “Queen B” and will just start telling everyone what to do. The one thorne in her side will be McCrae, he’ll be gunning for anyone who went against Amanda.

        What Amanda leaves out to tell the puppets what to do, Helen picks up the slack and gives the rest of the orders. I would like to see GinaMarie go up as a replacement nom for who comes down, actually anyone but Elissa and Candice.

    Aaryn thinks howard is being framed for MVP she thinks its elissa. Elissa also promised to aaryn she wouldnt nominate her next week.

    Silly Helen thinks it’s a little too early to get Amanda out. Good grief! I hope she can gain some clearer vision before the vote…
