PoV Ceremony Spoiler & Aftermath

The live feeds went to trivia at 10:13am, signalling the start of the PoV Ceremony.  Without question, Amanda will use the PoV on McCrae, thereby insuring both of their safety.  It will then come to Elissa as HoH to nominate a replacement.  Andy is the most likely to go up, with Ginamarie a distant second..

Then again, this is Elissa, so absolutely anything could happen!  As soon as it does, we'll have it for you here within this post.

If this is your first time on BBDish today, you need catching up! :0)  Here are the links to today's previous posts: Monday Morning Before the PoV CeremonyThe Overnight Report.  Also, there was much ado about Amanda's antics yesterday.  Here's the transcript to how it all began: Amanda Gets Nasty With Elissa

Much more to come..  As soon as the feeds come back.  When you get a chance, check out BB Alumni Ronnie and Adam's New Show! :0) I've had the pleasure of spending time with both of them, and they're really good guys.


Amanda: I told him what we talked about before.. Idiot.  She ruined my f'in day.
Judd: What turned me off.. I'm just gonna vote my way.
Amanda: It was just a last ditch effort to not have him go on the block.  We just needed genuine reaction from you.
Judd: I had suspected that, but I wasn't sure..
Amanda: but it didn't work.  Sorry..  Was there ever a moment when she was gonna put up GM?
Judd: You have 3 votes for sure..

CONFIRMED:  Andy is the Renom

Judd: Do y'all wanna make a 1 week deal?
McCrae: We're all going after Elissa.  That's all I want in this house.
Amanda: Judd, the entire house is against her.  In order to not make waves.. You can see she's not reasonable..

McCrae: Sorry to put you through that, Judd.
Andy: There were like 9000 instances where i wanted to say something.
Amanda: Just know my loyalty never wavered with him.  The whole thing was to try to keep him off the block.
Judd: I'm a target from hell next week.  I wanna make deals and stuff.

Amanda: If we get HoH next week, we wont put you up.  I'll do that deal with you.
Judd: Same..
McCrae: We're gonna have ot rebuild our trust.  Once trust is broken, the only way to get it back is to slowly build it.
Judd: It's hard to trust anyone in this game. My biggest thing is people in jury need to not take things personally. If I don't get to final 2, I don't want some scallywag to win.

Judd comes in for a hug with Amanda, then McCrae.. McCrae and AManda leave..

Andy: I want you to know.. Exterminators is what I want..
Judd: That was a lie.  I would never keep them safe.
Andy: oh, I know.. I know.

Amanda: The backdoor's still locked.
Andy: What do you think's going on?  Maybe it's a luxury comp!!!

Rainbow Room
Gm and Aaryn

Aaryn: 3 days..
Ginamarie: You have my vote.  That's all you need. That's all you need.
Aaryn: If you know something, just tell me.. It's a game.  I just want to know.

Cam 3

Amanda: Hey what's up?  How are you, angel?  That was a great speech you made up there.  Wanna play chess?

Elissa: Sure.
Amanda: Do you feel threatened and scared?  I'm very threatening and scary.   Why don't you look like any of your pictures? What exactly have you done to your face?  How many doctors did it take?
Elissa: hehe
Amanda: Right?  It's a joke. Your face is a joke.  How many more days do you have left before you're not HoH?  2 and a half?  And then you're stuck down here with me.  I don't think there are any doors that lock down here either.  Oh there's the Diary Room..

Amanda: Where you going, Joker?  Have fun up in your room..  Now you put up another ally of yours.. and you have no one.

Cam 3
Amanda: I wonder if she was the secretary.. The mistress maybe?  She was married before.

Chair Room

Amanda: I want you to stay, but I may be the only one.. The fact is, Andy's been with us longer.  it doesn't matter what I say.
Aaryn: It's gonna be an awkward 3 days.
Amanda: It doesn't have to be.

Aaryn tears up.. Amanda moves to comfort her.

Amanda: I'm sorry.  I tried SO hard..
Aaryn: Andy's gonna win.  He never has to do anything. It's all for nothing.
Amanda: You're just up against the most liked person in the house.  Even if it's a better game move, people don't care.  You still have 2 days.  You never know what's gonna happen.
Aaryn: I hope you win this game.  I don't regret anything.
Amanda: (breaks down) I tried so hard.
Aaryn: I know you did.

Amanda: She will leave next week.
Aaryn: GM's gonna work with her.  I know she will.  Just so you know.. Don't use this til you need it.. Spencer and Judd are both gonna put you and McCrae up, if they win. Andy is probably too..
Amanda: When did they tell you that?
Aaryn: They didn't say it straight out.  They just insinuated it.  You have to be careful.. I think Judd's gonna work with Elissa.. Gm 100%..  Just wait til I'm gone.
Amanda: I want McCrae to know..
Aaryn: I don't want them to hate me for the last 3 days.
Amanda: I never ever thought I would win this game.  I never even thought I would come in 2nd.  Up til now, I've played this game.. I've run it.. I'm a good player. I don't care what people say.  I'm not Jordan, or even McCrae or Andy who flies under the radar..  And neither are you.

Timecheck -- 11:53am  This is ongoing.

It's time for a wee bloggy break.  We'll be back with a new top post for afternoon coverage soon. :0) Please mind the critters on the live feeds.  They really haven't been on their best behavior this week..

And once again, this is why I have battled between not sticking up for some of the things Amanda has done but still feeling as though I am pulling for her.

Throughout this entire game she has been the mouthpiece of her alliance. Partly because she is good at it and partly because she was encouraged by the rest as long as it protected them all. During the course of the game she received a lot of animosity from a lot of people (Howard, Spencer, Candice and Jessie) that really should have been directed elsewhere but was not. Helen was controlling that side of their alliance at that point but the heat always came back on to Amanda. Maybe some of these things (fights with Jessie and Candice) would never have happened, or at least not have gotten so bad.

Amanda has been stressed and has been told by Helen, Andy, McCrae and I think even Judd at one point that they know she gets the brunt of everything and it is not fair, but in the end it will help them all.

And once again, Amanda has to fall on her sword. She has to admit her and McCrae's part in 'keep Andy of the block.' It may backfire-it may not. But Andy and Spencer walk away with their hands clean and she admits her plan in order to keep Andy safe. So, if nothing else at least give the girl credit for being loyal and playing a good game.

And there it is...Amanda did 99.9% of the work to get as many of them to the end as she could and Andy has walked away with clean hands and a new alliance. (I may have to eat my words. Sometimes it is hard to know exactly where Andy's head is at.)

If the Exterminators is the real alliance Andy wants I will say this-Andy did NOT want to go down as the Shelley of the season, however that is exactly what he has become.

It's funny to me. Amanda and McCrae act like nothing can touch them and when the chips come down they get mean and agressive. Hello this is BB and this is the way it should be. They have been running the house long enough. Good for Elissa for doing what she did and shocker next week one of the McCranda's will be gone! Carolyn thank you for all that you do! I don't know how you do it because I want to jump in there sometimes and go Hi. There is a real world out there and this is going to smack you in the face when you come out.

I'm not a fan of the way Amanda is behaving toward Elissa, it's too much. Just like I wasn't a fan of the way Elissa treated Amanda on McCrae's birthday. I call wrong wrong when it's wrong...doesn't matter who it is. It's no secret here on the Dish that I am not really a fan of either of these ladies in the game...I don't know them personally, and I believe this type of game stresses or "pressure cooks" these people, so I try not to judge too harshly. My opinions on Aaryn have never been too high, as her types of comments early on were not game related, so I have very little sympathy for her as far as her job is concerned. I hope she learns from the consequences of her actions, and I hope BB fans aren't malicious and/or violent...and I really hope they leave the families of these contestants alone!!!

On another note, I totally love Judd lol

Amanda really has been the workhorse of her alliance and I commend her for that. Say what you will about her, she's fiercely loyal which is more than can be said about most of the house. Not only that, but she's incredibly entertaining. Only Judd is funnier.

Love her or hate her, Amanda is playing the game hard and making sure this season doesn't go down as a bore. Rock on, girl.

While Amanda may be playing a good game, the nastiness is not necessary. At all. Especially, since she started this as a tactic to keep Andy off the block and it didn't work, so she should stop now. It's not flattering. At all. I guess this is how she acts when she doesn't get her way. It's really the first time that she did not get her way.

Just for game sake-

Say Andy got evicted- How fast before GM came running back to 'Bunny'? I would say as long as it took Elissa to forget about working with Aaryn once POV didn't go the way she planned. Where would Spencer go? To the other loan Exterminator or back to McCranda? And what would Judd do if he did not win HOH? He made a one week deal with McCranda to not go after each other. As soon as they walked out the door he said that it was a lie. If one of them won HOH, would he say that he lied when he said he was lying?

I don't think it's going to happen. I'm quite sure that Poopy is getting flushed. But it could make for another interesting week of game play.

Hello all-
Thank Carolyn for the updates, always:)
Grendon- I always appreciate your incite into things. People are going to hate Amanda for bullying, etc., but she seems to be the only one in the game that has stayed true to her alliance (even McCrae is hinting at letting her go). I know that she has said and done some repulsive things, I will not apologize for her.
But in a game that has every house guest touting, "All you have is your word"- she's never wavered from Andy and McCrae.
Andy was afraid of being a floater and thinks that getting rid of one of his game-long allies will change that; just one more person that doesn't understand what a "floater" really is. Andy has easily gone from my favorite to least favorite.

Oh, excuse my manners. Hello Carolyn!!! And Dishers! ;)I'm just so disgusted at Amanda. I hope Judd gets HOH and puts her up!!!!!! Please, somebody stand up to them.

Poor Amanda, she didn't get what she wanted this week for GM to go home. Heaven forbid that Elissa would ever go against Amanda's wishes. ELissa is doing what she wants getting Aaryn out of the house and Amanda knows that. Instead she goes after Elissa trying to keep Aaryn and to save Andy, which shows the rest of the house who is really in their alliance.Amanda made a huge mistake and this will be her downfall next week if one of the others get HOH.

i agree with Grendon, Amanda in showing her loyalty has taken the brunt of the actions to save Andy from the block and the 3AM alliance. Some ,ight not agree with the tactical nature of her strategy but sometimes you need the nuclear strike when the other side has put up a strong defense.

If Andy does jump from 3Am to the terminators then he truly is this year's shelly. jumping from the showmance who showed unquestionable loyalty to the rats.

Aaryn this week will go, but like amanf=da did say to Elissa, there was one possible future alliance and vote elissa may have had down the road.

Judd, welcome back, i can't believe he still has not figured out that siding with Elissa i=will spell his doom, once again.

After looking at several polls at this and other sites, there is overwhelming evidence that the majority of people watching BB are offended by Amanda's behavior. For a while there, I was wanting Elissa to leave, but her ability to stick to her own way of playing the game has helped me find some respect for her. Thank you, Carolyn, for keeping us all so well informed!

BB did step in...Amanda isn't allowed up in the HOH and they gave her the rule book to read! Hehe.

I appreciate good game play, but I don't think mean girl tactics and bullying going on with Aaryn and Amanda is good BB game. Attacking someone's physical attributes and personal life really stooping very low. I'd really hate to see this game to lazy sloths who lay around a bitch about everyone else.

I am appalled at Mcranda's behaviour. She is disgusting and kudo's to Elissa for ignoring her and not falling into her trap of responding to any of her crap. this appears to be the first time in this season that an HOH didn't do exactly what Amanda said and she's furious. I would not consider her a good game player. She is rude, disgusting, shameful with a big mouth that just grates on my nerves - the second things don't go her way she takes to her bed crying like a baby. I cannot wait to see her face when she gets evicted, hopefully backdoored . . and her reaction when she gets out and finds out her reputation is shot, along with her job.

Amanda stepped WAY over the line when she brought up Elissa's husband and child. This child is in the 3rd grade. WAY over the line and I would love any Amanda fan to back that up. Children are always off limits! As a mom, that kills me she would say those things.

Her husband is balding? So what! McCrae could use a haircut but again, so what! Bringing up looks is shallow and tacky.

Really the next logical choice.
Last week ended his shady game. He really thinks he is the smartest person in the hs, over the last few days he has been cracking under pressure. last night he was almost melting in panic sweat! Absolutely dumb founded as to Elissa's choice, Really ? wow someone not including you in on whats best for their game? never mind he has been doing exactly the same thing week after week, getting his voice in who is the nom, pawn and evictee.
At this point his game could be falling apart. Arryn might just be in a position to help expose all the dirty dirt on everyone's hands , followed by an apology tour")

I don't feel Amanda would have gotten as far as she has if it wasn't for Helen. Helen did the footwork and talked a lot of the HG's into going along with Amanda because they liked and trusted Helen. Helen is the one that pulled Aryan in to do Amanda's bidding. Amanda is just wrong in her actions and nastiness. I hope these other HG's have finally come out from under her broken wings and fly on their own.

If any of your children were spoken to the way Amanda is speaking to Elissa in school, etc. you'd be horrified and there'd be no arguing she's a bully. Bullies and intimidators should never win.

Blogger brnidgrl said...

Susan Efird....Thank you!! I couldn't agree more. Elissa needs to GO.
For the record, I noticed that other sites are posting the link to the CBS Feedback page (for people to complain about Amanda), but here's what I wrote to them:
"I'm sick and tired of Elissa's elitist, entitled, hypocritical behavior on BB15!!! She's treated EVERY single HG like they're dirt under her shoes, has stated that she hates them, has accused them of being on DRUGS, and has CLEARLY stated, "No one will ever evict me because I'm Rachel's sister. BB is in my blood." She melts down and threatens to self-evict one week, lords her fortuitous HoH over everyone, then runs to the DR/production crying when someone fights back at her when SHE started the whole fight in the first place by putting HER hands on someone else's things (witness the fight with McCrae Sunday afternoon)!!! Many commenters on the blogs and/or "fans" are going to complain about Amanda, but not this one! I, for one, am sick to DEATH of Elissa & her special treatment and she can't be evicted soon enough to make me happy!! AG made a mistake casting this prima donna because, unlike Rachel, she has NO game, no logic, and no strategy! She's a loose cannon and this viewer will be utterly disgusted with the franchise if she even gets a sniff at F2! Please remember that "Brenchel Army" are biased and haven't watched the actions of "Rachel's sister" with ANY kind of objectivity. They have blinders on and will make ANY excuse for her. Be aware, too, that there are LOTS of rumors floating around about the preferential treatment that Elissa gets from production, not to mention the ones that production has intervened and fed her with game strategy by having the DR ask her VERY leading questions. She's just not smart or logical enough to have come up with some of the moves she's discussed in the last week. If production is intervening in ANY way with Elissa, please STOP now! Otherwise you may just lose a viewer going forward. If it's not ok for Amanda to be aggressively honest with people, then it's equally NOT ok for Elissa to claim her own goodness while she talks trash about EVERYONE in the house. Enough is enough. Get her out of there sooner rather than later."

Does anyone here who is taking up for Elissa and wishing Amanda would go to He!! remember Evel Dick!!!!! He was no angel, treated people like crap, followed Jen around just like Amanda is doing Elissa, even poured a glass of water over her head and everyone thought he was wonderful! Seems to me the same thing.

Amanda has gone a bit far but Elissa is NOT an innocent. She has said terrible things about everyone in the freaking house. Accused them of 'being on drugs' because they take Adderal, comparing it to heroine and said many horrible personal things about everyone. She is not a nice person.

I, for one, would like to see her leave on the next boat!

Sorry but I just get so frustrated hearing everyone dog Amanda. She has been very loyal (to a fault) and has taken the brunt of everything for her alliance. She deserves some respect at least for her game play.

I just don't get it. How is Amanda making up crazy lies about Elissa 's husband and children being "aggressively honest"? Is it aggressively honest to threaten to slit the throats of anyone who doesn't put up Elissa? I think I have a very differentt definition of entitled. Cooking for and cleaning up after the HGs, which Elissa does seems not to fit that, while sulking in bed while demanding others bring food to Amanda does.

Well said brnidgrl and Susan Efird... I would also like to remind folks some of the special treatment El gets. Uses a comforter will sleeping in the HN room. Demanda is told she can't use a bath towel as a blanket while sleeping as a HN.
Lights off in the HOH when lights are required to be on.

Finally, that last HOH comp was designed for her - small feet, great balance, good with balls...

Elitists' act like that because they are allowed to!

Bravo Branidgrl. I agree wholeheartedly. Elissa pushed buttons and provoked that fight. She knew everyone was feeling the tension and she almost got what she wanted as I believe she truly was trying to get mccranda thrown out of the house. Elissa has shown her true colors throughout this season based on her behavior from day one. She thinks she's her sister with this mean girl attitude not realizing she will never be her sister. And just to refresh everyone's memory Rachel too was hated by America as she too got away with the gay slurs to Ragan. Do I think Amanda's actions are acceptable? NO. But it is a two way street and Elissa has had her fair share of very mean comments such as the comments about Amanda's pregnancy, etc. I do feel that Elissa was the first to antagonize all the house guests with all her malicious comments and the only one in my opinion to stand up to her has been Amanda. Helen was Elissa's go between as Helen covered for all of Elissa's personal attacks and crude comments regarding all HouseGuest's as I don't believe anyone escaped Elissa's mean comments. Also, one last thing, don't know why everyone is complaining to CBS when all they have to do is not watch any of this. Feels good to vent.

Amanda, on the other hand, is a disgusting human being. I get it's a game, but she is gross.

Spencer has good game right now.

Ah the little seed of Doubt has been planted!
Arryn warns Amanda to be careful of Spencer, Judd and Andy!
Amanda will go in over drive uncovering the truth. My guess is she will work on Judd( he's fresh from jury , really hasn't been back long enough to forge a real alliance and desperate to make deals. Amanda will want to make sure she is voting out the right person.
Watering this little seed of doubt will be Arryns mission to save herself!
Hmm interesting how things can change just like that in BB house.

I'm not sure where I stand on how Andy has been playing the game.

Regardless whether he likes being called one or not, he is the ultimate floater. I wonder if he is admitting it in the DR.

On one hand, he is positioning himself to go far in this game ... if he survives being on the block, and that's not a given. Moving to the power (and the new alliance is a voting block power) to keep safety is a valid tactic.

However, always having "clean" hands doesn't usually garner votes to crown the BB winner. Andy's "big move" so far was being HoH and evicting Jessie. lol ... okay.

What is he going to say to the Jurors if he is F2? He let Helen, Aaryn, Amanda and Ellisa do his dirty work for him?

I still think there is a chance Andy leaves this week. Amanda and Aaryn would have to shore up GM's and McCrae's vote. Strategically, if I was GM/Amanda/McCrae, I would want the better competitor (Aaryn) in the next HoH to try and knock Ellissa out next week.

What did Jen do to deserve the treatment she got from ED? BB is a game of psychological warfare. She could have stayed home and skated in her ice rink

I cannot believe anyone is still defending Amanda or even calling here a game player. What she is doing is vile, well beyond the game, and she has loyalty only to herself. By being passive the other HG are just as bad in my eyes. I really thought Judd was going to be the voice of decency, but seems he is falling back into the negativity of the house. Speak up for what is wrong when you see it. If not, eventually YOU are the one wronged.

Not an Amanda dan but prefer her over Elissa. Comments about kiss out of bounds but I am bothered by the doting over her kid while seeming to rarely mention step kids. It makes me wonder if this is reflective of how she interacts with them. When a person marries someone with kids, treating them like your own is part of the package they are not lesser because they have a different mother.

Aaryn is trying to get in good with Elissa and Elissa says "I'm sorry for you" Aaryn says "for what?" Elissa "your life, who you are". Oh yeah, she's a peach. This is going nowhere. Elissa is on a Helen is a saint. Elissa says "the damage is done and that's like trying to apologize to someone after you kill them in a car accident". GM is in the room too and Elissa is trying break the bound between her and Aaryn. She is at an all time high of pompous and snarky. Finally being frustrated with this whole thing Elissa says that I'll think about it. Elissa says that Aaryn is lying and GM you shouldn't work with her, don't campaign for her.

Elissa pulls Andy over to the hammock. Elissa asks Andy to not be upset with her. Elissa tells her that Aaryn came up and threw him under the bus. Andy says he won't do it back. Elissa says she would never use him as a pawn. She says "I have to put Amanda in her place". Elissa's just mad that even as HOH and not following Amanda's plan she still can't get what she wants.

Aaryn makes a plea to Judd. Judd keeps rubbing his mic on the blanket and I almost lose my hearing. Basically she wants him to talk to Elissa on her behalf. I think Aaryn has burned to many bridges. Aaryn says if I try and talk to Elissa with Spencer they, McCranda, will freak out. In the earlier conversation with Elissa she told GM that Aaryn said to Spencer that she wanted GM out. Aaryn denied it of course but not very well. Aaryn believes if she can get Spencer she might have the votes. Judd tells Aaryn he wants her to stay over anyone. She's off and running.

I've been reading this blog off and on all summer and just wanted to say thank you for your work! :) I live rural and don't have great Internet so the feeds aren't am option to me.

It's interesting to read what the HGs are saying to each other here and watching an episode to see the HGs say: I would have said anything at that point to win a vote, or something to that effect in the DR. They are pretty good liars in this house!!

Anyway... while I agree that Elissa has been no angel in this house and she is kinda annoying (just like her sis), Amanda is taking it to a new low and I totally agree with the person who commented that if someone was acting like that to your child, it would be unacceptable. The thing is... Amanda is an adult!! She should know better and if Elissa had attacked Amanda's looks or family etc. Amanda would have gone ape s$&@!

I absolutely give kudos to Elissa for ignoring them... That is incredibly hard and laughing in her face?? I don't think that was disrespectful of Elissa. I think it was clever. If my kid was being bullied in school, I hope they'd have enough guts to laugh in their face and walk away instead of retaliate by doing the same thing back. They best (and hardest-I've been there) way to deal with a bully is to show them it doesn't bother you and walk away.

Amanda's ruining her own game. If she had continued to be relatively nice to people throughout the game, I think she could've won. Now... I hope she gets evicted ASAP!! She comforted Other HGs when they were attacked... Is she that delusional to the fact that she's one of the (if not the) biggest bullies in the house?

:) hope everyone has a good day!!

Elissa tries to bury the hatchet. McCrae apologizes too, sorta. He says "I don't know" hundreds of times, almost literally. Are you still playing the drinking game? You're going to be toasted. McCrae was not happy about being on the block. McCrae says he has been walking on eggshells around here. This is going back to the supposed laughing at her about religion. He is also talking about when Elissa made fun of Amanda on his birthday. McCrae is bringing up Elissa saying Jessie was on drugs. This is not going well. Elissa says she didn't mean those things the way the people took them. Elissa says she was trying to help Jessie. Elissa says I don't say mean things. It's not even in my character. Not well at all. She's bringing being a mom into it. McCrae is using her own words against her. Kind of the way she does to everyone. They both say that each other is a great person.

McCrae says "I don't know what is going to happen in this game going forward" That pretty sums him up doesn't it.

McCrae calls her out on called Aaryn and GM freaks. She says she didn't say that and he looks at her and she admits it. McCrae tells her he disgusted that she said she would walk and not go to jury.

Elissa says "do you know how many people wanted me to play this game?" He says it back to her about him and then says "no one cares about McCrae Olson being here". McCrae keeps saying that she doesn't respect the game and he doesn't respect that.

While all this is going on Andy has been holding court in the cockpit. Spencer and now GM are his subjects so far.

Skippy switches cams 3/4 to the kitchen where Spencer and Aaryn have a whisper fest. I didn't hear anything.

5:23pm cams 1/2 are on Elissa and McCrae now. BB calls McCrae to the DR. Elissa says everything she does is because she's a mom.

5:25pm Andy and Spencer real quick in cockpit. Spencer says he won't tell Aaryn he's voting her out right now.

Cams 3/4 Aaryn is on the HOH landing playing chess with GM. More whispering than playing. Aaryn tells her she is going to try and get Spencer.

The vote I would go after is Spencer. Make it 4 on 3 with all allegiances known. HOH would be 4 on 2 with one being GM and guessing it will be mental after all these physical comps lately. Most likely the next week HOH would be 3 on 2 as well. Get Spencer and it is pretty clear sailing to final four with the only road block being Judd.

Hi Carolyn,

I am so sorry there is sooooooooo much drama in and out of the house. What everyone needs to remember is this is a game, we are all different in our feelings and most of the time 2 people can't even agree....

These HG's have been locked up for 67 days with no escape and are getting very paranoid. They have no they can trust and that is huge.

We the fans have everything they don't have and still don't get along and can't agree.

It probably will get worse in the house. It usually does, if you look at past seasons, so I hope you get lots of rest Carolyn and can find special glasses to protect you eyes and plugs for your ears...I know you have several people out there that help you...thank you lessa, Michigan Man and Ryder..xoxox...you all rock...hehe

I have watched every season of BB. Follow all the feeds. I don't have a houseguest that I am pulling for this year. They have ALL done things that bother me. All of them!

With that being said, if you condone the comments and bullying of Amanda, you need to really think long and hard about some things.

This isn't ED. This isn't Janelle. This is a bully. Vile, hateful, and nothing to do with gameplay. It is different and shame on those who think otherwise.

He played the game ~ stop whining about production stepping in ~ they didnt when the racial slurs happenned ~ but let someone who obviously thinks anyone beneath her is scum whines a little ~ everyone jumps up on Amanda.... yes my rant...

Hi, Carolyn,

I'm not sure I'll ever understand why people say some of the things they do online. I've even had friends and family say things online that I know they would never say to me in person. It's so cowardly.

And it makes no sense whatsoever to harass the blogger. Just click the mouse and leave the site if you don't like it.

Really nothing has happened all night, game wise. Now they are drinking and telling stories. McCrae traded five cigarettes to Judd for a beer. Elissa helped GM with her hair for a long time. Elissa is sitting with the house, including Amanda, so I guess that whole thing is over.

Aaryn is now exiled, by choice. She's been spending most of her time today alone. She's in the hot tub alone while everyone else is on the couch. GM is in DR.

11:27pm I was going to say that we are getting some good inside info on casting without them being called out but instead Skippy flips the quad to Aaryn, doing nothing. She's eating a cookie.

11:29pm cams 1/2 are back in the backyard. They are still talking about production stuff and not getting called out.

11:31pm GM is out of DR.

11:33pm cams 1/2 Elissa and Amanda talking, alone. Elissa says she didn't expect fans liking her so much and she said she was nervous about accepting requests on Facebook. Elissa is explaining what Rachel was doing before BB and she had fans before from other things. Elissa says that Rachel was a very goodie goodie child and it wasn't until she went to Vegas she changed.

Switches back to Elissa and Amanda hashing out why things got out of control. Amanda is telling Elissa that the only reason she went after Helen is because she did it first. Amanda is trying to convince Elissa that GM is completely loyal to Aaryn. Amanda is telling her that Aaryn is going no matter what.

11:43pm cams 1/2

Aaryn went out to get her shoes and then comes back in to tell GM that Amanda and Elissa have made up. Aaryn says she wish she'd done what she wanted with her HOHs.

Back to the guys, talk about Survivor. Judd is telling them about the new one. That didn't last long now it's back to Aaryn and GM.

11:53pm cams 3/4

Amanda says she regrets what she said to Elissa and apologizes to her. So haters, get over it. Like the McCrae conversation earlier this afternoon this isn't going as well as it should. They both say sorry.

About 11:40 pm bbt Cam 4 Elissa and Amanda have a very deep convo in the BY. Amanda crys about the personal attacks that Elissa made about her on Sat night and tells her that is part of the reason she has done what she has done back to her. Amanda also tells Elissa that she will vote out Aaryn and she will keep Andy who has been loyal since the beginning. They talk about Elissa laughing while Amanda cried in the HOH Sat. night. This is heavy stuff...Amanda says she lost the baby but Elissa didn't have to bring it up and use it againist her. Elissa said (Sat night) that Amanda should never have come in the house & that she should have stayed home and mourned the loss. Elissa is offended by that. Elissa says everyone in the house is crazy (except her- ha ha that was me).

Yoohoo! Amanda WAS JOKING! She and Elissa made up and were on good terms and she was joking, saying those things at the kitchen counter. Honestly, it's like hatered blinds people to the paragraphs about them not being mad, E said she was laughing the whole time. So Amanda went for some more laughs--it's what she does. Like all comics, they just have to gor for another, like a drug, then they go too far....

Grendon, I so agree--Andy is thinking all skewed if he thinks the way to not be a floater is to dump your alliance as soon as they lose power, jump to the side in power, and resume play. Shelly. AND the very definition of a floater.

This imo is the move where McManda will lose BB15. Keeping Andy, a loose canon, who finds it so easy to trash them behind their backs, who refuses to stick his neck out for them, is NOT the person they should keep. They always look for double and triple effects from a single move. Well, keeping Andy gives Spencer and Judd a season-long ally in the house. Voting Aaryn out gives Elissa GM, a person she can work with even if the guys splinter off as Spencer has tried to do all season. Keeping Aaryn would keep GM from Elissa. Come an endurance comp on their feet, and she'd be good to have on their side. Andy has done terribly in comps. Aaryn is the "beast" and good to final 4. Andy and friends say McManda go up next week? Big mistake. Huge.

Michigan man, thank-you! Carolyn, super thanks all season.
