    It sounds like GM won HOH.

    And Amanda won't leave her alone. Amanda wants Elissa out and is telling GM what to do.
    I hope GM is strong enough to do her own thing.

    Just turned on the feeds and GM was in the storage room with Andy and Judd; she told them that Amanda and McCrae are going up.

    I really can't see her putting up Elissa nor going against the 3 guys in her Exterminators alliance so I expect GM to put up McCranda tomorrow.

    I guess we'll see if that holds true or not sometime tomorrow evening!

    Thank god I was wrong and Amanda didn't win. The quote I read on jokers made it sound like she won but that was because she was telling GM what to do. I hope GM is smart and puts up McRanda. They have to go up and one of them has to go home. Don't try backdooring, if they are both nominated you can still guarantee one goes out if the house is in agreement.

    PML, I was at a game and came home halfway through the show and STILL got to see Aaryn's eviction. WTF was that stupid couples thing? I never need to see Daniele Donato or Jeff and Jordan ever again.

    I still think it would have been great if Aaryn had walked out to absolute silence, but WOW, Julie and TPTB did a great job with that interview. It only could have been better if Julie had, instead of trotting out the comments from 3-4 weeks ago, said "here are some remarks you made LAST NIGHT", since there certainly were some that would fit. Has the BB live show crown ever heckled like that? Wow.

    Gina Marie! :respec: PUT UP McCRANDA!! :cheer2: And even though GM is certainly not going to use the serene approach that Elissa did, I think she'll have no problem at all dealing with Amanda's inevitable shit show.

    If Gina Marie does go after Amanda, I hope she does it while holding a soda in her hand as that was one of the funniest parts of that fight with her, Elissa and Amanda the other day was GM saying "I'm just trying to drink my mutherf*ckin soda".

    I think GM is solid in her hate of McCranda so I really can't see her doing anything else.

    And she did this last night:

    Its her telling feed watchers that Amanda is CRAZY!

    I'm so glad I don't have plans tonight and will be home doing laundry as I can't wait for the feeds to come back on after the nomination ceremony as McCrae and Amanda are totally clueless right now that they will be the nominees. They think a combo of Judd/Elissa/Spencer are going up. And I really don't think anyone plans on spilling to them what's really going on in the house. Andy flipping on them has really left them blind as he really was their eyes and ears out there and now that he has flipped, they have no one else.

    If GM really wants to mess with them, she needs to put Elissa's key last!

    Cause they are having some sort of luxury comp this morning, Amanda had to get up out of bed before 3pm. First thing she did was go to the HOH room and cry to GM. Like that will work on GM!

    I really, really hope that Andy stays mute and doesn't ruin the surprise of McCranda being nominated today. McCrae seems worried but Amanda is her delusional self!

    Judd and Spencer will have to do the comp in their chicken suits!

    Was there really a crowd in the studio last night when Aaryn was evicted? In every other week, we got to see the audience every time they came back from commercial break before the camera moves to Julie. Last night we didn't see one audience member. The sound of the audience almost sounded like it was dubbed in afterwards...after Aaryn had left the studio. And Aaryn didn't even move her head even slightly when the "audience" reacted negatively...as if there was nothing for her to hear during the interview?? Very strange.

    I actually feel bad for Aaryn, although I hate so many of the things that she said. But she is a product of her environment, I don't think she's alone in her way of thinking in regards to the people around her back home. I think this experience will be a BIG wake-up call and if people cut her just a little bit of slack instead of seeing her as racism/homophobia personified, then I think she could make a lot of positive changes in her life which will affect others in her life as well. But if she's labelled too much as a demon, she might harden herself, dig her heels in and take the label and not change at all... :(

    I think a big part of how the press/public will react to Aaryn's return to society after September 18th will be based on what Candice says when she too gets out of the jury house and is free to speak her mind. If she comes out forgiving both Aaryn and GM for how they treated her, I think that could go a long way in helping both Aaryn and GM.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Julie has Candice come on to "The Talk" and chit chat with her about everything.

    I don't see Aaryn as being that stubborn or stupid. I've always thought she was more a mean girl than a racist/homophobe - someone who was used to being popular and relished in the mean girl game of belittling others and making them feel uncomfortable in whatever way would do the most damage - whether their race, sexuality or anything else. I bet she's made as many remarks about people being fat or ugly or unpopular or old or poor or too tall or too short or whatever as anything else.

    I think Aaryn is not the girl who went into that house at all. She's come quite far in such a short time, and surely has a long, long way to go, but I think she'll get there. Here time in the jury house with Candice, Jessie and Helen will help, because she was no doubt quite upset by her interview with Julie and will want to talk about it - not to mention that fresh from hearing her words repeated back to her she's going to see the very people she aimed them at.

    It would be more interesting to have several of them on the show to talk about it - what happened in the house, what happened in jury, what happened when they went back into the world, how it's affected them all. Candice, Aaryn and GM would be the most interesting to me, preferably together. Howard would just continue with his own angle, Helen would take over the discussion and talk about what great girls they all are as though she raised them herself, Andy wouldn't have anything new to say, Amanda will still be too much of a mess to have an open and honest discussion. I imagine when Spencer finds out how he has jeopardized a job that it sounds like he loves, he will lay low and work on getting his life in order instead.

    My bet is that Candice, Aaryn and GM will have stories to tell on how this experience affected them for the better, IMO. At least I really hope so :)

    I thought Aaryn was visibly shaken by the response from the audience. Had it only been her and Julie I think she would have held onto her swagger, despite the tough questions. Plus, the HGs know it's a live audience on Thursdays, they expect it on eviction - it would definitely show on Aaryn's face if she'd walked into an empty studio.

    I agree with the first paragraph - Aaryn's complete lack of investment in the things she says is what makes her so awful. I think she's so narcissistic that it just doesn't occur to her that anyone who isn't the direct target of her words in that moment could ever think she thinks that way about them.

    I don't think she's come far at all, though. Had she still had any power in the house the last few weeks she would have been just as rotten as the first half of the game, and to the last night she was spewing bigotry. She still thinks it's 100% ok. Honestly, her response to Julie last night was entirely her pageant training on how to handle questions you weren't expecting and trying to spin them to your best advantage (and then Julie was NOT HAVING IT).

    There's hope for Aaryn, but she hasn't come anywhere as far as, say, GM, who is truly a product of her very limited background and has shown willingness and interest in learning new things.

    It looks like the competition was for luxury items. Spencer won $10,000.00.

    I saw the audience last night & was surprised to note how many men were sitting there. Aaryn was very shocked when people laughed at her attempts to explain anything she said was meant in humor. I would imagine there are many Texans who will be angered by her claim that they all share her views.

    Not a bad summer for Spencer, if he doesn't end up making the final 2:

    Stipend which I think is 17,000
    10,000 cash
    Trip to the Bahamas

    He might be jobless though as between the garbage that comes out of his mouth and bragging about using drugs, he's in a sh*t load of trouble with the railroad.

    :duh: of course! Here I was thinking she was being surprisingly poised, especially since she does a lousy job at hosting competitions for someone who fancies herself getting an on-air hostess job. Her training and experience only extends to taking that one question at a pageant.


    Yeah, I think he's going to be devastated as I get the impression he loves his job and is very proud of it. At the same time, I can see where he might just get a slap on the wrist, because I have to think that in what is likely a male dominated work culture, Spencer hasn't been saying anything that isn't said around the workplace all the time.

    At least though he's getting the benefit of a process around his job - unlike GM, who was fired without any warning or opportunity to try and save her job. In every workplace I've ever been part of, the only way you'd be fired like that is if you were found guilty of breaking the law - even the accused have usually been given a leave of absence while the charges are pending. For more minor offenses - such as GM's behaviour being inappropriate for her workplace, which I agree it is - that would result in a verbal warning, then a written warning, and then as a final step, firing - with severance. I wonder if she's even got a case for wrongful dismissal.

    Aaryn as I understand it wasn't fired so much as two contracts were broken/not renewed, and it's likely they had clauses in them that allow that.

    Make sure you watch Sunday night as the blindside of Amanda and the nominations is hysterical.

    GM has held her own on the feeds, speaking pretty clearly about how as a couple they needed to be broken up as everyone else is alone. Add to the fact that Spencer and Judd are in their Chicken suits and it makes it all the more better.

    Amanda needs to find out ASAP that Andy has flipped cause I need to see that confrontation! But so far Andy is doing a good job of pretending he doesn't know anything!

    I used to like Andy but not anymore. Talk about untrustworthy!...Aaryn was in a position where she was forced to go with the house or be voted out earlier but she kept her word. He sneaks around listening to what everyone has to say & at the last minute flips flops on his weaker looking alliance. I hope he gets dumped after MCcranda. I don't like Spencer either so hope Judd, Elissa or GM are final 2.

    I play chess with a friend sometimes...and his Knight always moves so gallantly and friendly-like across the board. Being so nice to all my pieces. And then all of a sudden, he whacks half of them off the board!!! That Knight is SO untrustworthy! :(

    McCrae won veto.

    So now GM has to make a replacement nom. She has a loose final 2 arrangement with Elissa but not as official as the Exterminators. Spencer and Andy "volunteered" early today to go up in case one of McCranda won so we'll see if that's the way GM goes. No way GM risks both McCrae and Amanda staying in the house so she'll put up a pawn. I'm looking at you Andy!

    I hope Andy goes up! I really dislike his game...oh wait he has no game! But I'm sure Amanda will tell McCrae to use it on himself and she will throw herself on the sword to save him. I feel bad for those in the jury! They all hate her! and she hates them. But she will have to be nice to try and make it so McCrea wins. I really dislike the season of BB. I really don't like any of the hamsters very much

    GM just said that she will not put up Elissa. She is keeping her word to Elissa that she would keep her safe for the week in thanks for Elissa not putting up GM last week, where GM would have gone home over Aaryn.

    Seems like it will be Spencer as the replacement nom since Andy did something in the POV comp that "proved" his loyalty to GM. Andy knows that there isn't the votes to save Amanda so he has finally fully flipped over to the other side but he and Spencer are making nice to McCrae incase McCrae wins the next HOH. Elissa/GM would be McCrae's targets if that would happen.

    As long as Amanda is going out the door, I don't mind McCrae having won the veto. Hopefully he will be the only vote to save her.

    (Been lurking here since this season started. Never really had anything to contribute until now.)

    Don't be so quick to think Amanda's gone.

    Based on what I've read on Morty's feed recaps, it almost looks as though McRae is going to take Amanda Off instead of himself.
    The guys (the exterminators) are seriously considering trying to get Elisa on the block to go next. :wall: They want to keep McRae around!!!

    I'm at the point where I really don't care who goes, stays or wins the damn thing. Mind you, I can't wait to actually see Amanda get hers during the nomination ceremony.

    But if Amanda can pull this off, you might as well just hand her the money right now.

    Brilliant playing on her part.
    Stupid, stupid, stupid (did I say stupid) move for the exterminators

    GM is not putting Elissa up. None of that is happening. Amanda is out the door unless Mcrae saves her.

    I did think of McCrae vetoing Amanda and not himself, but really really really, is he that stupid, this showmance lasts long enough for her to get free and run with the money, doesn't he get that?

    Judd had a theory that he could try to convince McCrae to use the veto on Amanda, with McCranda thinking that Elissa would be going up after some acting on GM's part. McCranda would think that Spencer/Andy/Amanda would be the three votes to keep McCrae and Elissa would go home. But in reality, if he vetoed her off, GM would put Spencer up anyway and McCrae would go home. I think Judd was ultimately talked out of the idea last night, but Judd absolutely wanted McCrae out first. He knows if McCrae wins HOH, he and Elissa go up, and if Elissa wins veto, Judd goes home.

    But in reality, there is no way that McCrae would not use the veto on himself. No way.

    On the flipside, Spencer/Andy want Elissa out after Amanda goes and before McCrae. Judd and GM would have a problem with that. They all know that McCrae would target Judd/GM and Elissa would target Andy/Spencer. It's going to all depend on who wins HOH. But I don't think Spencer/Andy would be able to win HOH and convince one of Judd/GM to vote out Elissa over McCrae. They'd need one of their votes to seal the eviction and I don't see that happening. Elissa isn't coming after them and McCrae is.

    Even though most of these diary room talking bits are staged, I have found most of them to be pretty funny tonight.

    And it really is amazing that once Andy stopped feeding them info, how blind McCranda were! Well Helen the blabbermouth was telling them stuff when she was in the house too.

    Can't wait to see what the editors do with all the great stuff from Friday night on Wednesday's show.

    It should be titled "It just doesn't make sense" since that's what Amanda said over and over and over and over.
