    I just ran the numbers in my head and I think Jeremy can do it.

    Six votes is all he needs.

    Candice, Howard, Elissa all hate Aaryn. He can play upon that.

    McCrae, Andy, Judd have to be concerned about all the boys leaving, he can play upon that.

    Kaitlin has said that she is voting out Spencer as she can't vote for her friends but he can work on her changing her vote to Aaryn so he would only need five of the first six I mentioned.

    One more thing:

    Jeremy staying would make Helen's head explode as people wouldn't be doing what SHE wants and that would be hysterical. Helen's HOHitis is off the charts. So drunk on power!

    I know that's the Grodner edict, but I would be really disappointed if that's how it plays out. I don't think it's better for the show in the long run to manipulate Aaryn out of the game - they've gained a ton of credibility by showing people how they really are. Ushering Aaryn out the door just reeks of coverup, and it's back to taking no responsibility for their casting decisions.

    As much as Jeremy is the target this week, I'd actually be surprised if he gets out. Production wants Aaryn out. And this house is insane: a target has not left once, in the first 2 weeks! They all change their mind the final day.

    It could be a money issue. If sponsors are making waves to CBS about being associated with the show as its stands now, they might not have any choice but (1) remove her from the house or (2) force her out by manipulation.

    Grodner is not going to allow some stupid racist immature girl to ruin her cushy CBS job so Aaryn has to go.

    Production aside, I think Jeremy's got a shot as he will campaign, and there are a few weapons in his arsenal that Aaryn doesn't have.

    I don't think CBS has to worry about advertisers. CBS can simply choose to make it all a non issue and never show any more racist comments in the show and leave it out of exit interviews plus place a gag order on the contestants that leave pre-jury, which I am sure they are within their rights to do. I don't think Aaryn going home would be horrible and her leaving over Jeremy is not a disgrace. As matter of fact, most casual viewers would see it as a great thing that the mega racist is gone and not even realize what role producer manipulation played in all of it. The only hurdle this week for CBS was making sure Howard didn't go home or even get nominated.

    Well we'll know soon on the feeds if there is going to be diary room manipulation as if someone like Judd or McCrae comes flopping down on the outside sofas after visiting the diary room and say "you know, maybe Aaryn going home this week would be a good thing".

    So Jeremy needs 6 people to vote out Aaryn or at least 5 if the votes go 5-3-2. So what does he do yesterday!?! Pick a big ole fight with Candice, one of the people he needs to flip. So the odds of getting Aaryn out this week just fell considerably but the diary room still has 2 days to work on things.

    Oh Aaryn's attempt to pull Judd away from Jessie is in full force. If she keeps it up, Jessie is another person the DR/Jeremy can work on to vote out Aaryn.

    I think the funniest thing on the feeds last night was everyone messing with Gina Marie's shrine to Nick. Hope that gets shown on the broadcast. And poor Helen is such a dummy sometimes. She decides that all the girls need to bond over doing their nails. Great way to make the boys even more nervous about the number of girls left in the house.

    My personal favorite item in the shrine is his chapstick.

    And then his hair gell, which both Andy and Judd have admitted to using just to mess with her.

    I think I read somewhere that Nick tweeted that those weren't his shorts - he thought they might be David's.

    I don't think Candice is going to vote out Aaryn - they've been making amends, but more importantly, Candice is determined to vote out boys, so if not Jeremy, it'll be Spencer for her.

    I think Jeremy's best bets are the remaining men - Howard, Judd and McCrae and then maybe Andy through the latter two, but that would take a different kind of persuading as he has never done the bro thing (and Spencer can't vote). At the same time, I think he does have a shot at some of the women - Kaitlin won't vote him out of course, and while Jessie doesn't like Jeremy I think if Judd is on board he could talk her into voting our Aaryn fairly easily. Not sure if McCrae could persuade Amanda as she has her own mind, but if he's on board he might at least move her vote to Spencer instead of Jeremy. I don't think GM will vote against Jeremy or Aaryn as they are two of her only remaining friends, so although eliminating Jeremy leaves her and her two besties as three widows together, I think she's more likely to vote out Spencer. Pretty sure Elissa will vote out Jeremy, but if Helen suddenly decides to keep her deal with Jeremy and refocus her sights on Spencer, that could happen too.

    It's a long way to voting time!

    Bad news for feed watchers:

    Gina Marie won't let them have a "memorial service" for Nick. Candice and a couple of others floated the idea to her last night that maybe having a service would be a help for GM to move on. I guess after sleeping on the idea, she's all against it and thinks its disrespectful.

    "How disrespectful," GM says, while blowing her nose into a crusty pair of abandoned shorts.

    I think we've all known for a while now that eventually a season of Big Brother would feature something disrespectful.

    I really liked Helen in the beginning, but she can't seem to stop giving out information she isn't suppose to. Her alliance is getting annoyed that she says things like "If I keep you safe this week, you have to keep Amanda/McCrae/Judd/Andy/Elissa/Helen safe". She is basically outing her alliance members every time she does that, making them all targets. Her alliance is at the point they don't trust her. The second you tell Helen info, it's passed through the whole house within 10 mins. They need to drop Helen by evicting her soon.

    Luckily Amanda/McCrae/Judd/Andy have a smaller alliance group called "The Goof Troup". :lol:

    oh, Helen :wall:

    per Dingo's site, seems like Jeremy is the most likely to go. Until the DR goes into overdrive?

    Unless something changes with the DR, Jeremy is leaving as you never hear Aaryn's name brought up as a possibility of going. I'm sure Grodner is a nervous wreck over Aaryn staying in the house and Howard still being everyone's #1 target. She'll probably rig the HOH comp for him to win and press for her and Kaitlin to be nominees again. Then just give him the MVP vote too! Or just tell Elissa to put up Gina Marie.

    As for Helen, Judd is already pushing for Jessie to move up the ladder in the bigger alliance over Helen. We could end up with:

    Spencer/Helen/Elissa/Candice vs Judd/Jessie/Amanda/McCrae with Andy being the floater.

    I think that would be an interesting standoff.

    I wonder what GinaMarie will do when her cronies are gone. She seems like the lowest target of her group, since she's too busy mourning to have any kind of strategy going on.

    Ugh I hate these random "how do you think America voted" HoH comps. This is how we're going to end up with a Kaitlyn HoH.

    Those HoHs are complete luck. I don't like them either but it makes for good TV because anyone can win and it often comes down to a tie break, which is also complete luck (ex: How many seconds have you been in the Big Brother house...don't go over, good luck).

    I'm thinking Grodner & Co have accepted that Aaryn isn't going home and maybe this will be another opportunity for Julie to clue in the hamsters as to how they are coming across. I'm not willing to give CBS my info so I can't vote, but please let one of the questions be "which houseguests will need to go into the witness protection program at the end of the summer?"

    Jokers has a list of the questions - some of them are a bit convoluted - not to mention Julie's ability to read them clearly - so if they have to guess how America answered on the fly there could be some odd answers.

    Might as well just pull a name out of a hat for this HOH.

    Quite night on the feeds last night. Guess all the craziness with the first two boots wouldn't last. I'm actually kinda surprised that Grodner is content to see three guys leave in a row and didn't push for Aaryn's eviction.

    Helen is getting on her alliance mates nerves. Jessie had a great quote: Helen is having a showmance with her HOH key! So it will be interesting to see if Helen's continued over play and promise to SAVE EVERYONE is going to bite her in the ass in the coming weeks.

    Aaryn is making a play bigtime for Judd. Its actually kinda amusing to watch. I guess having two girls fighting over him will be something new for Judd so I can see him milking it for all its worth though gamewise, he still remains firmly with Jessie in his final 2 alliance.

    Have plans tonight so I'll be curious to see who wins the random HOH when I get home. I'm hoping for a Candice win but who knows what will happen.

    They put on a variety talk show last night during After Dark. Of course Helen played host. It was funny at times...especially GinaMarie doing a sports segment and Candice doing the "Get Real" segment. Judd was funny. It's worth a look if you haven't seen it.

    Interesting ring but more interesting are her nails! Canada's maple leafs on them? Is that a call-out to us Canadians watching the show? One can wish/hope, right?

    Does anyone know if Rachael will ever be back on survivor. She is my favorite survivor player ever. I miss seeing her on the show. I think Rob came back for about 5 survivors so I hope she is back soon.

    The best part was Candice's segment where she asked Aaryn what she has learned the most inside the Big Brother house, and she replied, "that I should invest in a grade-A muzzle." :lol:

    There is another message board I post on and they have two threads for Big Brother, one for spoilers and one for people who just watch the shows. It is so aggravating to go into the non-spoiler thread. Holy hell it is AMAZING how little those people know. I think almost all of us watch but we all also follow the feeds and internet chatter. These people who only watch the show are so clueless and don't you dare try to clue them in because they will tell you how stupid you are. They don't realize they are only working with half the information. It really hit home how much better this show is if you spoil it, I know the competitions aren't as fun to watch that way but that is a small sacrifice to know what's actually happening in the house. For instance, they all think Helen is playing the best game and is in the best position in the house. They also all think that Elissa stood her ground by not nominating Howard and that shows what a strong player and person she is. They have no clue Helen is digging her own grave by blabbing all the alliances in the house and making too many deals and they have no idea that Elissa is the productions pet and follows orders from the diary room.

    Jeremy is evicted 9-1-0. Judd (of all people :lol: ) wins HOH. America is MVP this week and will vote for the 3rd nominee.
