The Overnight Report
Good morning, BB Lovers! Happy Friday and Happy Helen Week to you! Today in the House, we're expecting a Have Have Not Comp and Nominations.. And of course, all the HoH meetings prior to nominations..
But first.. The Overnight Report... Amid racial tensions and funeral like mourning, McCrae comes clean to Amanda about The Moving Company.
If you missed the craziness on the live feeds last night just before and after Helen's HoH Reveal, get on over to Lessa's post: Helen on High!
The following happened before the Overnight began, but it's important to watch.. Make sure to follow Candice and Howard into the next room... when he picks her up and carries her there. The heartbreaking beauty of part 2 outweighs the ugly of part 1. Start at 10:53pm on Camera 3, July 11th.. You can click the pic to get there..
Small World Room
Aaryn: I haven't said one derogatory racist thing. They were waiting for the opportunity and the comment I made about the fish.. They take what I say and twist it.
Jeremy: I know, girl. It's been a rough day.
Checking on Howard on Cam 3..
A picture's worth a thousand words.
Candice: She flipped my mattress off my bed. I cannot. I cannot.. I will lose my temper if I sleep in there with them. I am going to reneg on my Evel Dick and I'm going to just chill out.. and one of them will go home this week.. I am going to listen to Howie and take his advice..
Amanda: That takes a lot of self-control.. If they sat in my bed and wouldn't get up?
Candice: I kinda want to do that, but I want to respect Howie. Jesus came into my heart as Howie and I were praying and told me it's gonna be ok, so it's gonna be ok.. What would all of you do?
Amanda: I went in there.. and I was like (whisper yelling) "You're a racist! And all America is gonna know it!"
Andy: Spencer and Howard cannot be trusted. I just know it. Spencer and Howard framed Jessie. THey planted one vote to cast doubt on Jessie.
Helen: Why would they do that?
Andy: Because they thought the power would go to the other side. I saw them all day having secret meetings. When you have a rat, you have to lure it in, and then kill it. You have to trust me.. Spencer and Howard cannot be trusted. It wasn't Jessie. They oversold it. They think we're idiots. All day, they wanted to frame Amanda and McCrae for it.. and then when they found out we had Jessie, they decided to vote with us.. But I'm telling you Spencer and Howard are rats. Howard swore on the bible up here that he didn't vote David out, and he did. I can see right through this sh*t.
Helen: I know the second I won HoH, he was like holy shit.
Andy: They're not giving you, me, Amanda and McCrae credit.. It just goes to show, even in the future, they can never, ever be trusted.
Andy is 100% on to Spencer and Howard, and it sounds like he's making progress bringing Helen there too.
Helen: Seriously, if Jeremy miraculously comes off the block, and Aaryn and Kaitlin are still there, Spencer's going up.
Andy: Spencer and Howard just made it easier for us to take McCrae, Amanda and Judd to the final 5.
Helen: You would take me?
Helen: I'm glad today showed everyone - He Can Lose. After all of his bullying and intimidation tactics..
Helen: Before he leaves, I want to get some information.
Andy: About Howard and Spencer flipping..
Helen: And he's gonna be the 1st one to give that up.
Helen: I gotta say, Judd has really surprised me. (in a good way) I can't wait til they call me to Diary to talk about the vote.. I mean, literally, we were working the house all day..
Andy: I'm exhausted from it.
Helen: And Spencer, before the vote, came to me saying, I have always had your back. I said, it's all about the votes today.
Candice comes up, asking to take a shower.. They ask how she's doing.. She says she's gonna sleep in HN with Howie. Helen invites her to sleep in HoH with her..
Helen: You can listen to U2 if you want.
Andy: Ooh! I want to listen to some U2. I wanna win an HoH so bad!
Helen: You can, Andy! Win the next one.
Candice is talking from the bathroom, but I can't make out what she's saying..
Candice: I just pulled my pants down and flashed my vajayjay to the world.
Andy: I'm sure it's nothing people haven't already seen.
Meanwhile, downstairs on Cam 1, Our poor maligned and misunderstood racist is feeling attacked.
Aaryn: That hurts. That made me look like the biggest idiot ever. You weren't even involved. You just gained an ally. Good for you.
Amanda: She was being attacked.
Aaryn: I know you have to be heartless in this game, but you're taking it to a new level.
Amanda: I'm sorry that you took it that way. I just think you put yourself in a bad position. I tried to give you hints that you were putting yourself there.. It's not personal. It's a game.
Aaryn: Comments like that. That's forever.
**Aaryn - Just so you're clear... America doesn't think you're a racist because Amanda said so.. We think you're a racist because you've shown yourself to be one.
Aaryn: The way you're talking to me right now is condescending. You have to one up everything I say. I'm already in the minority. You came in there and attacked me.
Amanda: Because you were attacking Jessie.
Aaryn: It's not your battle.
**It's always your battle:
"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?" Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14
Amanda: Look up the word condescending, because you're using it the wrong way..
Amanda: Fair or not fair, everyone had the opportunity to use the twist equally..
Elissa: Amanda, c'mere real quick. I gotta show you something.
Amanda: It better be your vagina, or I'm out.
Elissa: It's better.
Amanda goes in and talks quickly with Elissa and Jessie in the darkened room..
Amanda: She's just being an idiot.
Amanda returns to the Chair Room, and McCrae has taken up where she left off..
Jeremy: It is a game. You just gotta take it on the chin, stay strong and move on.
Andy shares how he became a target merely by being friends with Elissa.. and that was very uncomfortable for him. It's starting to feel like group therapy.
Timecheck - 12:48am
Cam 1 and 2
Helen and Candice
Candice: Something's weird about that kid.. He wasn't who he said he was.. I'd bet he was lying about his profession, and, not that it matters, but.. Ginamarie was so into him and..
Helen: He was a good kid. The wrong person went home. (should've been Jeremy) And when Elissa said, if I put Kaitlin up, will you vote to evict her, he said no, and that hurt his game.
Candice: I'm proud of Elissa.. She's made big moves fearlessly... There's something with Amanda too.. Bigger fish to fry.
Helen: Bigger fish to fry. We need McCrae.
Candice: I love McCrae. This racial stuff has gotta stop though.
Candice: I wanna just say, if we can all accept each others cultures, the color of our skin and our sexual preferences.. this will be a much better place.
Talk turns to Howard...
Helen: Are you guys hooking up? You should marry him. He's such an eligible bachelor.
Candice: No, it's not like that. Although I will admit, we were just praying together and I was slightly turned on by the prayer.
Skippy flips us to a crying, nose blowing Aaryn, and although I cry at Hallmark commercials, I can't seem to muster any compassion.
Checking the Quad... 1:08a
Then Spencer heads up to HoH...
Spencer: All the racial stuff is just corrupting this game. I don't have a racist bone in my body. It doesn't make sense to me.
Helen: Come in!
Jeremy: I just had to get out of there. Gems is going crazy.
Jeremy: I'm jealous that you have 2 boys. I want boys. I don't want any girls.
Spencer: I told him the other day, you're gonna have all girls...
Helen: After the show, we're going for number 3.. I was on bedrest, complete bedrest, with the 2nd one for 4 months.. and then I ended up getting an infection, and I was sick for another 3 months.. I know I'm probably gonna go on bedrest again.. so I wanted to do something fun first. (BB)
Jeremy: Do you mind me asking why you went on bedrest?
Helen: Not at all. 20 weeks in, I was 1 cm dilated.. So I was on moderated rest for 4 weeks.. and I went in and I was 2 cm dilated.. so they said, ok, you're on complete bedrest..
Checking the quad, Howard has just finished comforting Ginamarie... stroking her hair.. He connects with Candice in the Hallway. He wants a night alone. Ginamarie can be heard wailing off camera...
after some resistance..
Candice takes her turn comforting The Wailing Widow Uhas...
Helen, Jeremy, Howard, Spencer, Judd
Helen is holding court.. After recounting her HoH win by request, Jeremy takes his leave.. As the door closes.. Helen can't resist a giggle at the joy of reliving her HoH win with Jeremy in the room.
Howard: I didn't mean to bring you down.. I just wanted you to know.. The whole time I was washing dishes, I was like, stay out of it, stay out of it.. She can't take the high road, like you.. It made me feel so bad.. and I was so enraged.. I know I'm put on this earth to defend that woman.
Helen: Also, she's already had a lot of snide comments made, and I'm a minority too..
Howard: Any time something like that is said, it's to all of us.
Judd: I don't like it either.
Howard: I just have to think of them as kids.
Judd: At 22 they should know better.
Howard: I told Candice, I need you to be quiet, so I can be quiet.. To defend somebody, when i know that's what I should be doing, I'll gladly go home. If we didn't have the advantage and the numbers.. Just this once, chill out.. take the high road.. Like, I'm proud of her being down there with G right now. I know Kaitlin and Gm have good hearts.. and that other spark plug.. I pray for everyone in this house.
Helen: I hope what happens is that when she visually sees the appalling behavior, and she's with her family, who cannot condone it.. perhaps she'll grow from it.
Howard: I commend Jeremy.. I talked to a couple of the producers.. and we talked.. (and skippy heard the word producers, so... fishies.)
Helen: Hopefully when she sees her behavior, she'll realize..
Spencer: She thinks she's gonna get a career out of this..
Helen: She's not gonna get the career she wants, after her behavior. Like, you're not gonna be a cohost on the The Talk...
Talk turns to Helen's upbringing.. Her parents were very conservative..
Helen: I was a geek. Total geek. I have love for geeks. I went to prom because I asked someone out.
Spencer: There is nothing sexier than a girl asking you out.
Helen: It made me feel bad.. Like, am I not pretty enough..
Prom stories continue..
Helen: My senior prom date ended up hooking up with my friend.
Howard: You should shout him out.
Helen: Marty Weekes.. Senior prom date.. I forgive you. Let's be friends. Let's go to lunch. No hard feelings.
Andy's in the Cockpit with Amanda and McCrae. Kaitlin knocks and asks him to come talk with her. He goes. Skippy flip us to...
Aaryn apologizes to Candice. Candice accepts and apologizes for things she said tonight..
There is no hug it out.
Candice goes, leaving Aaryn to comfort the Wailing Widow Uhas.
Kaitlin: Now that I'm looking at it from a fresh perspective..
Andy: I recognized it right away..
Kaitlin: Like everything she was saying to me, I just trusted it.. I believed it.. I really do trust Jeremy.
Andy: I think Jeremy is one of the most trustworthy people here.
Kaitlin: Aaryn tried to get me and Jeremy to turn against each other this week.
Andy: Helen knows you're a good person. We've had in depth conversations about it. We want to play this game with good people who deserve to people.
Kaitlin: Jessie I was rude to the most.. Out of our alliance, I stuck up for her all the time..
Andy: But You have to realize, people in your alliance treated her like shit.
Kaitlin: Trust me, I get it.. I get all of it now.
Andy: Take a couple days.. Think about people you trust.. think about who you like.. It's only week 3. We have like 69 more days. The only reason I've been lying to you is because you're aligned with the enemy, and I don't feel like you're the enemy. I'm telling you. I worked so hard to make sure you didn't go up and Nick did.
Kaitlin: Thank you. Thank you. Seriously.
Andy: I know the Kaitlin I met on night 1, and I know that's the true Kaitlin. Just know that you have a friend in me.
As of 1:57am, this conversation is ongoing on 3.. I've gotta stretch.. brb.
Helen, Howard, Spencer
Helen: I feel that this is McCrae's HoH and Amanda's HoH and Elissa's.. I'm happy for everyone.
Howard: I'm happy for you.
Helen: Thank you. This is a victory for you.
Howard: I'm thinking since this was 7-4.. It kinda jilts the thing a little harder.. Just to add some extra confusion.. Be ready for the backlash..
Helen: Someone came up to me earlier this week and said ELissa's going home, and I was like, that's the stupidest move ever. If you have an alliance and it's foolproof, why go against it?
Howard: My thing was, let's just weigh every option. If there was ever any doubt with me and Spencer, if she does keep it, to us, it looks like guys are leaving every week.
Helen: One guy before tonight.
Spencer: There's a thing going around the house that she wants all girls..
Helen: My HoH is not gonna be like Aaryn's. I want people to relax and have fun. We're gonna make another hard vote. It wont be such a blindside this time..
Spencer: I wanna talk with you a little bit too.. Maybe tomorrow or the next day. I feel like you trust me now. I hope you do. I want you to.
Helen: I want your honesty. I will never hold it against you. That's all I want - loyalty and honesty.. If you can't give me loyalty, give me honesty.
Spencer: I want us to be completely on the same page.
Helen: I look at you guys as having my back.
Spencer: And we do. Howard and I have talked and we've never...
Helen: You guys know - I love both of you. So any suspicion really broke my heart. I will never hold that against Andy.
Spencer: What I did was just reel myself back in.
Talk turns to Elissa..
Helen: She's the sweetest girl.
Spencer: She came with a huge albatross around her neck.
Helen: She could just as easily gone to the other side, but they were so mean to her..
Talk turns to comps and intelligence and strength.. Helen feels Nick was the biggest intellectual threat on the other side..
Helen: Now I don't have to worry about Nick in intelligence comps.. And physical? He was up there with McCrae the whole time.. Why wouldn't you take that guy out? And a fine social game.
Spencer: He got better on the block, because he had to talk to people.
Howard: Yeah, that was my 1st time really talking game with him, when he was on the block.
Helen: So anyhow, it's not that Elissa's coming after the guys, it's just taking out the people we need to move forward.
Howard: We really trust ya'll now too.
Helen gets to the crux of the matter...
Helen: I just don't wanna be Brigaded.
Jeremy and Aaryn
Jeremy: I don't think Helen's gonna come for us. She might, but I doubt it. Cuz Helen wants to be here with competitors.
Aaryn: I don't know how many times I have to explain myself to people.
Jeremy: You don't have to explain yourself to anyone. Look at Howard. He is a true black man, and he doesn't think you're a racist. That is one fake bitch in there. I didn't even know those existed. That is absurd.
Aaryn: I've heard people talk about that.. but I've never met one til now.
Jeremy: I don't know why Big Brother brought her in here.. but I hope she crashes and burns
Aaryn: That's what I said coming in here.. The things that you do in life catch up to you one day. The energy you put out on a regular basis returns. If you're mean all the time. You're attracting shitty things to come back to you.
Spencer: What's up?
They ignore him completely and continue their conversation as if he hasn't spoken.
Jeremy: You know the tv's gonna love you, so even if you don't make it to the end, they'll invite you back.
**not so much.
Aaryn: I have no meanness.
Jeremy: I have plenty.
Aaryn: I mean, I have it... I'm just drained.
Jeremy: I seriously thought I was gonna come into this house and just coast. And I'm not.
Aaryn: I manifested this. I thought this was exactly what would happen, and it has.
Talk turns to the HoH Comp..
Jeremy: Of all the people who could've gotten it on their side, this is best.
Aaryn: I heard them talking, and she said, we have the numbers to make it to the final... They're going to turn.. Helen hates Amanda..
Jeremy: Not only that, she hates floaters like Judd. She even said it upstairs..
Aaryn: Judd.. I can't believe Judd.
Jeremy: I'm gonna frikkin frog gig the shit out of Judd one day.
Aaryn: I can't believe he's such a douchelord..
- It could be a blank wall and I'd rather sit with it for a few minutes...
McCrae and Amanda
McCrae: If we didn't win HoH, my plan was to expose Moving Company.. cuz they were like, she's out to get you..
Amanda: You knew I wasn't though.
McCrae: I don't care anymore. They can't trust me? F*ck em. You just have to know that there's no way I was gonna let them go after you. I was gonna expose them all.
Amanda: So since the vote..
McCrae: I told Spencer that I was gonna throw up a vote to keep Nick.. Howard came to me in the Storage Room and said if you're gonna throw a vote, you have to at least tell Manda, so when the numbers came back,I was like, those f'ing sons of bitches... I'm done.
BB: Helen, please come to the DR
Amanda and McCrae head up to the HoH Room
Amanda: Helen, do you mind if we use your HoH while you're in Diary?
Helen: Of course not. Come in. Eat anything you want. There's prosciutto and cheese and stuff too, so make a sandwich if you like..
Amanda: Can I have some Hummus?
Helen: Take whatever you want. It's the people's food! People who voted for Nick today.
Helen asks about feeding the fish.. McCrae shows her what to do.
2:52am - Helen leaves for the DR
Amanda: Come here. I need you.
McCrae: That's not appropriate.
Quick but intense, they break it off and start game talking.. as McCrae tells Amanda more and more about The Moving Company.
Amanda: So if I had won the Veto, you would've had me keep it the same and vote out Jeremy.
McCrae: Yeah.. and I think they would've wanted that anyway.
Amanda: So he knew that I wasn't voting out Nick.
McCrae: Yeah. And Helen told whoever.. and Spencer.. It got f'in dicey.. What the whole thing came down to was.. I was the swing vote this week.. See ya later, assclowns.
Amanda: Spencer's an asshole. He was such an asshole before, and now he's up my ass.
McCrae: I was gonna call a house meeting. That was my plan.
McCrae: They're dumb, they don't know what they're doing, and they didn't count on me being a wild card.
McCrae: I told the DR.. I tell the moving company I can cut her whenever, but the truth is, I need her..
Amanda: I'm glad you told me. I don't want any secrets.
Talk turns to Nick.. McCrae would have liked to work more with him..
Amanda: Was the alliance created with us my idea? The 8?
McCrae: No. That was the moving company's idea. It was Spencer's idea. Spencer and Howard.
Amanda: That was a really good idea. Nick was a f'in genius. He must've really masterminded this before he came in. It was very smart.. except for the people he chose for it.
McCrae: You don't hate me now?
Amanda: No.. I'm glad you told me.
3:10am - Helen knocks on the HoH Door.
Amanda: You don't have to knock on your own door!
Helen: I didn't want to interrupt anything..
They tell her goodnight and head downstairs to the memory wall, where they point out the gray zigzag they'd like to make.. David, Nick, Jeremy, Spencer..
3:14am - Bedtime for McCrae and Amanda!
Jeremy, Kaitlin, Aaryn
Jeremy: I feel like I let you down. I told you we were all gonna be safe..
Kaitlin: You didn't let us down.
Aaryn: I didn't either.
Jeremy: I think people just think I bully because of my size.
Aaryn: I think they just want America to hate us so we never win MVP.
**... we now return to Land of Delusion.
Aaryn tells them goodnight.. Jeremy and Kaitlin stay..
3:28am Kaitlin continues..
Kaitlin: I don't want them to backdoor you.. Aaryn's only gonna bring you down.. This is serious.. I've been wanting to talk to you about this for the past 2 hours. The entire house is against us right now.
Jeremy: I know, babe.
Kaitlin: So what can we do?
Jeremy: We've got some work to do tomorrow. What id I get Helen to throw up Amanda and Spencer?
Kaitlin: You are a strong person..
Jeremy: Helen already told me she wants to talk to me.
Kailtin: I'm telling you right now.. Aaryn is their huge target.
Jeremy: You don't have a bad bone in your body. I already know it.
Kaitlin: I don't want you to go home.
Kaitlin: We're gonna have to switch to the other side.
Jeremy: We don't switch.. but we are gonna have to work with em... I have a huge crush on you. It's a stupid huge crush.... You wanna have my babies..
Kaitlin: Woah! You just went from 0 to 60.
Kaitlin: I already apologized to Judd for yelling at him tonight. I'm so sorry. I don't ever yell at people like that.
Judd: I'm sorry too. We're gonna be living together for a while. I'm sure we'll argue more, but I'll try not to use harsh words like that.
Kaitlin: Thanks, buddy.
Judd goes into the WC.. Jeremy resumes Romancing the Minnesotan...
Timecheck - 3:36am
Candice comes into the bathroom.. Then joins Howard in the Have Not Room..
Jeremy: Can we just go to sleep?
Kaitlin:We need to think about it. We don't have too many days.. I don't trust anybody. At all.
Jeremy: I have to try. It's the name of the game. I would rather be backdoored.. I would blame myself so hard if I lost veto.
Kaitlin: Ok.. here's the problem - everyone in this house sees you as a threat. Change that.
Jeremy: I just went out on the 1st question.
Kaitlin: I know. It's gonna hurt.
They're finally in bed..
Jeremy's getting frisky..
Kaitlin: Stop, stop.. We can't.. As much as I want to.. Trust me, I know.
Jeremy: No, you don't.
This concludes The Overnight Report.. I'll see you when the HGs get up! :0)
