I loved the montage of DR tears though I was kind of surprised they showed notRachel openly asking about the DOR process. I guess it doesn't really matter at this point since the America's Choice check is basically hers.
I did read about Britney on twitter. So sad and scary. Her baby, Tillie, is just a couple of months old.
Keeping good thoughts for her and family.
So sad to hear about Britney's baby. I hope it isn't terminal and that she can get treatment and beat the cancer.

An anti-climatic finish, but after 15 seasons, a gay person finally won.
It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.
I couldn't believe how incoherent and idiotic Gina Marie sounded in her responses to the jury's questions. She deserved to lose just for that nonsense. Andy at least had a focus for his responses and played the jury well. He deserved the win.
I'd rather be thought of as absolutely ridiculous than as absolutely boring.
zaphyre I agree - I thought GM had a shot and was really surprised when Andy didn't take Spencer. But she blew it in Survivor Amanda style, while Andy aced it. I think she was truly happy just to win $50K though.
I'll be searching around a little for fallout in the coming days - from the transcripts of Jeff's backyard interviews it sounds like they got into bullying and racist remarks, but the fact that GM lost her job, Aaryn lost several contracts and Spencer's job is in question didn't seem to be in play yet - it doesn't sound like GM and Spencer knew yet, but I suspect Aaryn has had a bit of briefing in the jury house.
I did think Spencer did get that something big had happened and he was part of it, and he looked really concerned about it - you could see him leaning over to talk to McCrae several times as he tried to understand what was going on. Julie almost seemed smitten with him in her interview - clearly the people that brief Julie are selective in what they tell her.
Annoying that they chose the rambling Howard to bring the issue forward, and that Jeremy didn't say the one thing that got to a lot of people about Helen's tears - the fact that she said in DR that she fakes tears to her kids to get what she wants. Helen clearly didn't get where the question was going.
Can't stand Helen - she's now saying that she trusted Elissa the most from the start, which is not true as she said many time in DR that it was Andy who she trusted the most and Andy who she planned to take to the end, and in gameplay she showed she was ready to ditch Elissa any time. Revisionist history anyone? She's likely already convinced herself that it all went down completely different than it did.
Amanda said in her Jeff interview that she didn't know what was happening with her and McCrae because they hadn't talked in two weeks. My math may be wrong, but he was voted out 6 days before the finale, so even if they had him aside for a day or more, they should have had several days together by now.
I missed the ending so am wondering who won the "fan fav" money. I realize it might be on the CBS website but I am just too weary already this am to go look. Please share?
Crazy about sports!
Aaryn did do her press walk last night with two PR folks in tow so at least her mom came though with her promise to get her some professional handling. Will it help, who knows but Candice did say that Aaryn wasn't racist, just ignorant so things might not end up being that bad for Aaryn in the long run. Candice sounds very forgiving of her but not Gina Marie which makes sense as what GM said about Candice's mother was very, very personal.
One of the reporters was live tweeting and he said that he was the one to break it to the various jury members about the lost of jobs, etc. Ah to have had a camera on those exchanges.
I agree Jenny, Spencer knew something was up but wasn't sure what was going on. Will be interesting to see if he is able to work with his union and keep his job.
As for the outcome, I stopped caring awhile ago who actually won the money so it really didn't matter to me if Andy or GM took home the big check. Hopefully Andy invests his money wisely and doesn't blow it.
Just read on another board that Candice and Aaryn were on some local newscast talking about what close friends they became in the jury house. Aaryn said that one of the modelling companies she was with wasn't that good anyway (meow!) and that she had a bunch of meetings lined up with other agencies/opportunities. I think she's going to be fine.
re America's Favorite - I did like that they shared the runners up for the first time. Those choices alone should tell them a lot - I think they all knew Elissa would win and Judd was popular, but for someone who didn't even make the jury to be in contention is very unusual. Also tells people that America didn't like them after all - Amanda already knew and is likely OK with it, Andy might be a bit sad about it but OK because he got the money and that's the most important, and Helen probably fancied herself a favourite but will now take credit for Elissa's popularity. McCrae, as a superfan, is probably still quite pissed at the realization that he blew his opportunity in so many ways.
btw, Howard is doing an upcoming appearance on the Bold and the Beautiful - again not something that an early boot usually gets to do, so maybe Howard's Hollywood dream will be realized in some way after all.
I'm glad for Howard that he can extend his 15 seconds of fame a bit more. The night of bedgate was horrible for him as you know he wanted to go off but couldn't.
Candice and Aaryn becoming friends is good for both of them. I'm not sure what kind of opportunities they can have out in LA but they should both try. I know that Jessie is staying out there too but she's such a nonentity on the show nothing probably will happen for her. I do hope she stays away from porn.
From the feeds, Andy wanted to be loved, loved, loved by America so he's probably a bit upset he isn't but his big check will help lessen the blow.
Jessie has seemed so incredibly bitter in jury, the return comp, and last night. One of the first things you have to learn in Hollywood is that having talent and/or looks isn't enough - it's just as important to be someone that other people want to work with. Professional, willing to work, cooperative, doesn't cause trouble. I see Aaryn already working on that; Jessie has no idea.
Not sure how Howard got that opportunity - BB players have been on the show before so there's a connection, but I wonder if someone was rooting for him specifically and made it happen. I'm not sure I see a lot of other opportunities for him, but as you say, it's something.
Then, in addition, comes this press release from DuPage:
“Andy Herren has formerly worked for College of DuPage as a part-time instructor. He does not currently work for the College. Any behavior or language he uses on the CBS reality show “Big Brother” does not represent the opinions or values of College of DuPage.“
Speaking of questions, I really wish that each jury member got to ask their own question, survivor style.
And it seems that Elissa is going to get the biggest bang for the buck out of her BB experience.
