Big Brother 15: Nominations Show Blog Party (Returning Hamster, new HoH) - August 25


Oh my gosh ... I forgot that people who only watch the show don't know who the returning hamster is, nor the winner of the HoH. As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest news!

The real party is in the comments ... come join us!

The HoH comp continues -- Spencer and McCrae down almost simultaneously. Helen is handing out intel on the house to the jury competitors as they play. Jessie, Elissa and Amanda are doing the best. Andy is down.

Jessie falls, yelling at Amanda on her way out. Amanda acts shocked. Helen falls followed immediately by Candice but the show really stretched that out with filmed commentary. And we go to commercial without her falling! Sheesh.

Judd returns to the house! He falls, so he won't win HoH. But he does return to play the game.

Elissa wins HoH! Only Amanda and GM were still up there at the time.

Elissa wants to target Aaryn. Amanda thinks she needs to put GinaMarie on the block with her so Aaryn will go. But ... Elissa is getting a kick out of causing issues between Aaryn, McCrae and Amanda by putting one of the other two up on the block with Aaryn. Heehee.

Judd aligns with Elissa. Aaryn worries. Amanda is upset because she has no control.

Time for nominations! Key order -- Judd, GinaMarie, Spencer, Andy, Amanda. Aaryn and McCrae are on the block. Elissa tells McCrae she hopes he wins the veto. She tells Aaryn now she knows how she has felt all along.

Hey Lynn and Sharon S

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie and all of you fans. I have really lost interest in this show. You guys are the only reason I still watch it.

Sharon said...

Hi fellow BB addicts!

Hi Sharon and Becky

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Jackie!!! Thank you for hosting us.

I'm on limited power. My computer died, so I'm on the little one. Looking at computers now to see what I'm going to get.

Yes, I checked the power cord, the battery - both are only 2 months old. The processor does not even come on. Black screen, that's it. Glad I backed up my computer. I'm sad, though. Can't do much on a mini computer. :-(

Penny

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Becky - how are you doing?

jennifer said...

One huge question I have... Why is everyone scared of Amanda? I haven't figured it out!

Nickelpeed said...

Any one have advice on a computer. I play a lot of games. That's why I think the other one died. Did have it for about 5 years and used it a lot.

monty924 said...

Have to admit... this is funny

Sharon S said...

I love Judd -- so glad Mumbles is back.

Nickelpeed said...

Andy is such a snake. r

David said...

Nickelpeed, I just got a new gaming computer. Custom built it on cyberpower web site. Had to go through a custom builder because wanted windows 7 on it. I can't stand windows 8 so had to go that way.

lynn1 said...

Helen makes me ill with all her love fest crap

Sharon S said...

I love how they are playing with the stand -- and only throwing the balls at random times with long periods between them. They really had to focus for this one.

lynn1 said...

Penny I bought a Lenovo a few months back and I like it a lot. I was replacing a dell which I liked too

Jackie said...

Jennifer - I think our blog commenter Joe hit it on the nose with Amanda. She has a charisma (which can be an evil thing as well as used for good). People follow her and do her bidding. So, they're not as much scared of her, but the power she seems to wield over others.

Nickelpeed said...

Who makes Lenovo?

lynn1 said...

This will b my last pool party for a while. we are going on Vacation for the next 2 weeks. I will of course be able to check on Jackie's blog to see what is happening

monty924 said...

Love J-U-Double D

Sharon S said...

I hope you have a good vacation Lynn. We'll miss you!

Sharon S said...

Yoga def helped E recover there.

lynn1 said...

I don't know. Lenovo makes them ? The one I have has Intel insides and Windows 7

Nickelpeed said...

Thanks David. There are some that do have Windows 7. I'm torn between an Intel Core i3, 8GB Ram, 720GB or an i5, 4 GB Ram, 500GB.

Or is an AMD a better gaming processor?

Penny

monty924 said...

Great save there

lynn1 said...

Thanks Sharon we are going to Nevada and Utah so It will be fun

Nickelpeed said...

Wow that some save

monty924 said...

Another great save

Nickelpeed said...

But, does she use it appropriately...:::sigh:::

Nickelpeed said...

Someone needs to knock Amanda and Aaryn off their blocks.

monty924 said...

I have Lenova at work, Penny. It's an IBM

Nickelpeed said...

He's Switzerland now, eh??? LOL

David said...

Nickelpeed, I went with an intel i7 3770k, 32GB, 1TB computer. I have always used intel chips so don't know anything about AMD to give an opinion about them.

Nickelpeed said...

Well, she needs to put up both Amanda and McCrea, but she's out to get Aaryn.

Of course you don't want to be put up Amanda, you will leave. Dang....I'd rather keep Aaryn over Amanda.

Becky said...

No sympathy to any of this fall from glory and running into someone who will not let her tell her what to do. Yeah, Amanda I am talking about you.

Nickelpeed said...

Thanks David. i7's are just too expensive. I really wanted one, but really can't afford that high of a GB, etc.

monty924 said...

That has to be the sloppiest bedroom in BB history!

Nickelpeed said...

David, how many GHz? and what size?

Nickelpeed said...

Man, McCrea will have no fingers left by the time BB is over!!

lynn1 said...

Elissa has tarantula eye lashes

traci said...

My ocd would be in overdrive these people are pigs i want to jump through the tv and clean

David said...

I have my comp. overclocked to 4.3Ghz. Custom towers are big. About twice the size of a normal one. Mine is also water cooled.

Sharon S said...

Why does Amanda think she shouldn't have to be the underdog in the game ever?

Nickelpeed said...

Yes, you will be weakened. That's what they want. She doesn't want to listen to you, Amanda. That's right Amanda cry....you see how Elissa has felt week after week.

Becky said...

Penny, my back pain is history, that to acupuncture, chiropractor treatments and a visit to my family doctor.

Gosh, don't those hamsters EVER pick up after themselves. They just drop their clothes.

McRanda is frustrated because she can't control El. Love it, loveit, love it.

monty924 said...

Lynn, just saw your post about your vacation. Sounds like a lot of fun. Have a great time!

Brent McKee said...

"There's no getting through to her." (Amanda talking about Elissa)

It must be difficult for Amanda to have to deal with someone who has a mind of her own and is willing to use it!

lynn1 said...

I find it very entertaining to see Amanda beg and cry

Nickelpeed said...

OMG, David! That's unreal!! 4.3Ghz? Amazing!!! o_O So, you have a desktop?

monty924 said...

LMAO

David said...

Nickelpeed, yes, mine is a desktop. sorry, didn't know you were looking at the notebooks, =]

Nickelpeed said...

So David, it's better to have a large MB and Ghz?


OMG!!! Nail polish remover????

lynn1 said...

Aaryan feels like a loser hahahaha

monty924 said...

Elissa was in a no-win situation this week.

David said...

Nickelpeed, when looking at gaming computers it is always better to get the most you can afford. Games are constantly evolving and I wanted enough computer to handle them for years to come so I don't have to buy another computer in a couple of years. =]

Wish I could see what you all are seeing. Show doesn't start for another 10 minutes here.

Sharon S said...

McCrae seems like a shell of himself from the start of the season. Has Amanda crushed his spirit completely, or is just really bored?

Nickelpeed said...

SHe's got to be kidding...her world? Amanda....you've lived in your little for a long time...call the kettle black...

Nickelpeed said...

Have fun on your vacation, Lynn.

Not going to be a good week for Elissa. She did to then what they did to her....hurts doesn't it Amanda and Aaryn.

Now you know how Elissa feels, Aaryn. Gee whiz.

Thanks for hosting Jackie. See everyone Wednesday!!!

lynn1 said...

What's the deal about the fans taking someone off the block?

monty924 said...

Well, that was pretty satisfying with the DR sessions. Didn't like McCrae going up, but we know how the POV turned out.

See everyone on Wednesday. Thank you for hosting Jackie!

lynn1 said...

Thanks Penny and Monty We can't wait to see Bryce Canyon and Zion National parks.

lynn1 said...

Thanks for hosting us Jackie

Jackie said...

Take care and thanks for stopping by!

Joe in NY said...

Missed it! LOL

Sharon said...

So satisfying to see Aryan in tears.
Although, I would like to have seen Amanda coming unglued too.

Amanda is getting particularly gross and nasty this evening (Sunday night). I think DR is finally trying to call a halt to some of her BS.

monty924 said...

I doubt it Sharon. She isn't breaking any rules. Hasn't Elissa ever heard of Evel Dick? ... or Russell tormenting Ronny?

Sharon said...

Probably not, but at the same time, it looks strange that each HGs were called in rather rapid-fire and now everything seems not to be as Amanda-style crazy.

McC isn't at all unhappy with Amanda going nuts and being particularly awful (and gross). He thinks Amanda's insane behavior adds fuel to the fire and will get her voted out before him.

monty924 said...

They're calling them in for their meds tonight. Normally they put them in the storage room, but Elissa said that Amanda took her Advil the other day/night.

monty924 said...

This IS a rule violation. Elissa is in the HoH with the lights off listening to her CD. Lights are supposed to say on during the day.

monty924 said...

Amanda just said that DR said she didn't have to stop that she wasn't breaking any rules. They think Elissa will get fed up and self-evict. So it was more damage control rather than rules violation.

deaflady said...

could someone help me understand why Elissa (can't, doesn't, wont) put Amanda on the block if Amanda uses the veto to take McC off the block??? If she uses it on him, that should make her available to go on the block...

Anonymous said...

Is it me, or does Aaryn have vampire teeth?

Sharon said...

If it's night time and she has decided to go to bed for the night, is it still a rule violation?

Elissa was taking a shower, then climbed into bed. Does BB allow lights off before a specific time at night?

monty924 said...

deaflady, the veto winner is immune from the block regardless if they use it on someone else. The only way the veto winner can be on the block is if they're already on the block and use it on the other nominee, like Evel Dick in S8. He won veto and took Danielle off. He stayed on the block and Dustin went home.

monty924 said...

No sure about what time specifically, Sharon. I'm pretty sure they (BB) could be taking it easy on her tonight though because she threatens things when she doesn't get her way. Self-evict, not go to jury if she's evicted, etc.
