Big Brother 15: DR Conspiracy to Save Amanda Zuckerman?
The Overnight Report, the internet exploded with charges of DR interference. DR Conspiracy? Not so fast.. This is Amanda's life in the game we're talking about here.
Elissa didn't come up with the idea, and neither did the DR. Amanda did, in a conversation that took place at 10:23pm Monday night on camera 1 and 2... well before any alcohol had been consumed.
I've transcribed the 2 conversations and placed them one after the other in this post.. The times and cameras are included, if you'd like to view for yourself on flashback.
Remember, just because the HGs are paranoid doesn't mean you have to be.. ;0) All season long, the people in the Diary Room ask the houseguests to consider scenarios from all angles, mostly for the sake of DR soundbites, as they do not actually have a vested interest in the outcome, ie., they don't care who wins. It is not until later in the season, once the HGs are so close to the 500k they can taste it, that paranoia is at an all time high, and everything said to them in the DR becomes perceived as some form of manipulation.
Elissa and Amanda
Amanda: I know that this is kind of a lost cause, but I figured I'd present something to you anyways, cuz um.. I dunno.. So.. Spencer said yesterday to McCrae that the next people he wants to go after is you and Ginamarie. And it's always you.. Like, you and Judd or you and Ginamarie. You can even go back to him and tell him, because he said it in front of people..
Amanda: I know that we've had our differences, and for you, Helen was close to you and helped your game, and for me, Aaryn was close to me and helped my game.. numbers wise. I feel like, at that point, we';re kinda back to square one, because you got rid of Aaryn, we got rid of Helen, and in the beginning of this game, when it seemed as though, like you, you were gonna go, I stuck my neck out there.. for you and I saved you..
Elissa: (nods in the affirmative)
Amanda: ..and I mean.
Elissa: But there's no way I would've went, and if I went, they would've brought me back..
Amanda: Well, even if that was the case..
Elissa: There's no way.
Amanda: But I didn't know that. Like, if you didn't have the votes, then you wouldn't.. You would've gone. You know what I mean? And there's probably gonna be a double eviction, after this next eviction, and after I go? Like, I just feel as though, if you kept me here, I would have.. I have nothing else. You would have me an McCrae. Hands down. Fighting for you. And we would not put you up on the block, and that's 2 votes right there. 100%. I would give you.. You can hold on to anything to guarantee that.. If you save me, it would be all you. You would be.. the swing vote.
Amanda: And that's 2 people right there saving you.. as opposed to Spencer who is definitely coming after you, 150%. And he said you and Ginamarie, he wants to put up together. So.. I mean there's really not much. I know I've been a total asshole to you, and we've had our personal differences, but it the end, like I told you from the beginning, I will always be honest with you. I was honest with you about the Helen thing.. I've been honest with you since the beginning... of the game. I feel like I never lied to you.
Amanda: I know that it's probably a lost cause, but I feel like, game wise, if you save me, then you would have 3 people playing for HoH next week that would protect you. Me, McCrae and Andy would..
Elissa: So you think Andy is definitely voting to keep you?
Amanda: If you would keep me, Andy would keep me. If you wouldn't, then he wouldn't. If he knew that we had the votes to keep me, he would.
Amanda: ..but not if he doesn't. If I'm still here, Spencer will still be going after me (**from the jury house?), Andy will still put me up, Ginamarie will 100% still have to go after me and McCrae, Judd will be going after me and McCrae. You know? Like, i'll still be here, I'll still be a target off of you.. Know what I mean? We're 2 seats.. Especially in a double eviction.
Amanda: It's something to think about. I don't need an answer from you now. I know it's a stretch, after everything that I've put you through, but gamewise, just know that loyalty is a huge thing for me.
Amanda: That's why I fought so hard to get Ginamarie up on the block, and not Andy on the block.. When I was like, I'll vote Andy out.. That was just a whole ploy to have you question whether you should even put him up.. I wanted to keep those two safe, because I was loyal to them.. In the end, I was more loyal to Andy, because at the end of Aaryn's HoH, I felt like she was faltering anyway. So.. Loyalty is huge to me.
Elissa: mm hmm
Amanda: And completely disregarding anything personal, just from a game perspective, if you were to save me, I would be.. 100% loyal to you. And I would never falter from you. Because I knew that you would be the one who saved me. It would be all you.
Elissa: mm hmm
Amanda: So.. I mean.. If you want think about it.. Want to get back to me about it.. I don't want any false glimmers of hope..
Amanda: Just know that if you think about numbers, like next week, like, if you kept me here, I would be a huge target, it would keep you off the block during a double eviction and it would give you three times more opportunities to stay off the block, out of 5 people playing.. because all of us would keep you safe and not put you up. So.. umm.. that's all. Thanks for hearing me out. Is there anything you want to say, or not really?
Elissa: Well, I just feel like, Ginamarie and Judd would be forcefully gunning for me too.
Amanda: Ginamarie would be gunning after me.. (whispers) But you could also blame it on Judd. No one would have to know that you were the one who was the swing. I wouldn't tell anybody.. No one would ever imagine that you kept me over him.
OK.. Now Fast forward 2 hours.. Elissa's had some time to think..
Amanda and Elissa
Elissa: I want you to stay.
Amanda: Are you serious?
Elissa: I swear to God.
Amanda: Are you serious?
Elissa: I am.. I feel like I trust you and McCrae more than I trust Andy and them. You think you can get Andy? You have to swear to me that you would protect me.
Amanda: oh my God.. I feel like I was dying and you are saving me..
Elissa: Me, you, McCrae, Final 3
Amanda: Yes. Swear to you.
Elissa: over Andy? You guys would take me over him. 100%?
Amanda: You can hold on to anything of mine.
Andy comes in.. Elissa tells him.. His reaction..
Elissa: I swear on my life.. I think we make a better final 4..
Amanda: I would do anything for you.
Elissa: I feel more of a connection with you and McCrae.. I'm not drunk.
Amanda: I swear to you with everything..
Elissa: Do you think Andy will tell?
**Did that really just happen? I could barely type I was so stunned. Make sure to watch it on flashback. Here's the 2 day free feeds trial, if you need it.
