First off, thank you a ton for the donations I received earlier today. That boosted my spirits quite a bit after the stupid car thing 🙂 You guys are great.
Also, tonight the girls are throwing the party for Amanda, and there is going to be some booze flowing mixed with a lot of tension in the air. It could be an interesting night, you may want to crank up the feeds.
This post may cover that unless I pass out while typing, but for now I want to bring something up that has puzzled me all year long. Why do certain players insist on putting off strong players until later in the game? Helen has been notorious for this, and she’s been going around the house tonight complaining to anyone who will listen because Jessie wants to make a move on Amanda this week.
Jessie tried, and failed miserable (but at least tried) to hatch this little plan where she basically did the ‘mom said to ask you’, ‘dad said to ask you’ routine kids pull on Helen and Judd. She basically told each other that the other was down for voting out Amanda if they said yes. Both spoke with each other about that and realized what Jessie is up to and agreed they’re still voting Candice out. You know, the huge threat who sleeps all day.
Helen’s plan is to keep getting out these people and then ‘deal with Amanda later’, but when is later going to happen? I am writing not because I want to see Amanda go, but because moves like this puzzle the crap out of me. Aaryn, GM and Helen all chat with each other and praise Amanda’s social game while in the same breath bash Jessie for trying to get her out. Wait, what? Did I hear that right? Amanda has a great social game, so your plan is to keep her in until the last possible moment and then if and when you do finally get her out, have her go taint the jury against you?
I’m going to try and look at the big picture for Helen here…..
This week, vote out Candice and target Jessie next week. This will leave…
Helen + Elissa
McCrae + Amanda
GinaMarie + Aaryn
Then Judd, Spencer and Andy who will ultimately have the power to go to any sub-alliance and make a strong final 5 run.
Then when you look a little deeper at things, Amanda is pretty close with Aaryn these days, and McCrae is close with Judd. GinaMarie will pretty much do whatever Aaryn does, while Andy has shown loyalty to McCrae, Amanda and Helen. Even if you remove Spencer, which will probably happen after Jessie, Amanda and McCrae are sitting in a pretty good position for this ‘end battle’ Helen keeps planning.
This is kind of like Braveheart (spoiler alert!!), William Wallace (Helen) is going to head into the final battle thinking she’s in a much better position than what she actually is. She will be expecting a fair, even fight to the finish, but next thing she knows, her ‘army’ isn’t backing her up and she’s left kneeling in a guillotine. What would be fitting is if she exits the house yelling FREEEEDOMMM!!!
Ok, time to turn on the feeds and see if anything interesting is happening. If I suddenly stop posting, it’s because I’m staring at the back of my eyelids on the couch next to my cat.
