Big Brother 15: PoV Show Blog Party - August 14


Yeah, yeah ... I know we already know (at least those who follow the live feeds), but it should be fun to watch anyway. Or, at least the party here can be fun even if the show isn't! As it airs, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest!

As always, if you're here for the party, head to the comments!

The 3am alliance is formed -- Aaryn, Andy, Amanda and McCrae. Helen is finally getting worried about Andy. Amanda decides that McCrae should form a fake alliance with Helen and Andy. Helen falls for it.

Power of Veto players picked -- Helen, Elissa, Amanda. Andy chooses McCrae to host it. With show fans aboard, they've figured out it might be the numbers counting hold/fold comp. They decide that everyone but Helen will fold so she can last out and Jessie just can't win. Spencer isn't thrilled.

The veto comp is indeed the counting hold/fold done in movie theater style ... BB Movie BLOOD, BOLTS AND BANDAGES! They have to earn three movie tickets. The plan got whupped when Spencer decided to actually play. Andy wins it, making himself happy as he won't have to decide a third nominee and get more blood on his hands.

Veto meeting ... Andy doesn't use it. Spencer and Jessie remain on the block.

Hi Jackie, Sharon and Dramahold

Jackie said...

I'm thinking Jessie's storm will be tomorrow.

Dramahold said...

Am I swimming in the wrong pool?

Jackie said...

And, hi all!

monty924 said...

Hey Jackie, Sharon S and Drama. Drinking word?

~~~SPLASH~~~

Dramahold said...

Hi lynn

monty924 said...

Hi lynn1

lynn1 said...

Jackie I am here for the pool party not for these weirdo hamsters!

Sharon said...

Hi all. I'm thinking a bit of the Jessie meltdown will show Thurs night. The pre-eviction scenario thing.

Petals said...

~*~*~*~~**~ SPLASH ~*~*~*~*~**~

Hey everyone

lynn1 said...

HI Monty

RBennie said...

I am attempting to join the party from my phone. Let's see how this goes.

lynn1 said...

I have a big platter of nachos...dig in

Joe in NY said...

hi folks

monty924 said...

Hey Petals, drinking word tonight?

Petals said...

Lynn - Jackie's parties are the only reason to watch this cast. :)

monty924 said...

Hey Joe

Becky said...

Hey, Jackie,Vincent, Sharon, Dramahold, Lynn, Monty, Petals, RBennie and Joe!.... also to any others who arrive.

Suggested word, "The House".

monty924 said...

One of the more original alliance names

Dramahold said...

What would make next week fun is if Spencer wins HOH and puts up Helen and Amanda.

monty924 said...

Helen wanted to make Andy's nominations like she made Aaryn's. Didn't work out this time.

Petals said...

Drinking word, I thought of Nick, Jury and another one...I forgot.

Shoot. Help! I am drinking anyway.

(for the record, Andy is the only person worthy of "fan fave" and the prize, IMO)

Dramahold said...

The House as a drinking word? We'll all be schnookered by the next commercial.

monty924 said...

Drama, Spencer would make a great HoH, because nobody knows what he'd do. I think you're right in that he'd nominate Amanda and Helen.

monty924 said...

Spock's love child, lol

RBennie said...

There have been more fake alliances in this game than real ones.

monty924 said...

Where's Becky? I need advice on puppy sitting an 11wk old beagle. She's wearing me out!

lynn1 said...

I feel such apathy for all these people

Sharon S said...

Hi all!

I'd love to see Spencer get it and put up Helen and Amanda.

Dramahold said...

If Hellen/Amanda were up next week that backstabbing and nastiness would be priceless.

Becky said...

Silk, if you arrive, I want you to know the blog suggestion you made on the previous was wonderful.

Do they post every day? I almost wet my pants laughing. And it felt so good to laugh.

She said:
For those who have not already discovered it, this weekly blogger is funny: http://www.bsideblog.com/2013/08/big-brother-photocap-andy-proceeds-gingerly/

It's the past week of BB in photos with captions.

If Helen and Amanda went up it would at least be interesting and not the boring crapola we have seen for weeks

Joe in NY said...

IF you can get past your dislike of most of the HGs, this is actually a pretty good strategic group. The Amanda and Helen teams have actually played this quite smart, annihilating everyone else in the house. It's kind of nice to see people playing slowly and deliberately rather than getting antsy and blowing up their own game. Like remember Janelle's 1st season when the two power blocks just took each other out and let the floaters coast to the end.

It might prove to be a very interesting battle when they decide it is time to take on each other. I hope it doesn't just peter out.

Sharon said...

Dramahold - yup, it would make Jessie's meltdown look a church service! lol

monty924 said...

Hey Becky, check my last post, lol. I must have channeled you. ;-)

Helen and Amanda on the block would be BB gold.

monty924 said...

I agree, Joe. I'm rather enjoying the strategy this season. I know that isn't a popular opinion, but that super alliance has been doing exactly what a super alliance should do. Control the house.

Petals said...

Monty - Becky is for shizzle your Beagle expert :)

lynn1 said...

Elissa looks like she just walked in from the 70's

Petals said...

Becky - good one! "The House"

What is UP with these sheeple??

Petals said...

elissa is pretty.

Anonymous said...

how stupid is Helen?

lynn1 said...

I guess I am not seeing group strategy. I have seen Helen and Amanda be strategic and the rest of the house follows their lead

monty924 said...

That was idiotic to ask him if you think about it. Why would Spencer throw the veto when he's on the block? I mean to the point where Jessie is out, but after that... why would he???

Sharon said...

Sometimes Helen is crafty and smart.
Other times, she can be dumb as a post.

Joe in NY said...

I'm with you, Monty. I think most watchers just want people to vote their emotions. This group has been remarkably deliberate.

And it really isn't that big a group that's been running the house. You've got Amanda/McCrae/Andy vs. Helen/Elissa/late addition of Aryan. Seems like a big group now, but that's is really 5 (since Aryan was with Jeremy early) people running a house with 10-20 people. Quite an accomplishment.

Dramahold said...

The strategy for both sides is to go slowly - which is fine as LNG as they are controlling HOH.andy may be in the best positioned one side takes a fatal hit next week. He just slides to the one left standing.

Becky said...

Monty, how lucky. Puppy breath! What's up? First thing and most important, do NOT believe those eyes. They lie with no shame. They will tell you they are starving and have eaten in days. They will actually eat when they are not hungry.

Is it house trained? Petals, would you please send Monty my email address om a private message on Facebook?

RBennie said...

There have been more fake alliances in this game than real ones.

Dramahold said...

*long

I hate auto correct

monty924 said...

Becky, she definitely ISN'T house broken and has a bladder the size of a pea. Lots of accidents... ugh

Sharon said...

I don't know how they keep track of whose in all those fake alliances, along with keeping track of the alliance names! It's crazy.

monty924 said...

This is cracking me up.

Joe in NY said...

lynn1, You're right in that it is Amanda and Helen leading their blocks. And, as I said, the core of the groups are small. But in past seasons, you often had a smallish solid group take on another smallish solid group with the result that both groups annihilated each other. The two groups here aren't really allied with each other. Helen knows Amanda is in her way and Amanda knows Helen is in her way. But they are smart enough not to move too soon.

You are also somewhat right in that I'm not sure what some of the other people think happens if they stick with Helen or Amanda till the end. But I'm not sure it is crazy for McCrae and/or Andy to think they can beat Amanda in a Final 2. Amanda has been flaky and made a few enemies. Elissa just doesn't seem to care about winning at this point. Aryan? I don't know.

But, let's assume Aryan wants to win and believes she can't beat Helen. She still can't take out Helen NOW. You've got to ride your group to the Final 3 or 4 and then hope you can win the key HOH at the end. That's why I think it is good strategy more than indifference.

People (maybe you) seem to think that if you want to win you need to take out Amanda like 5 people ago. But if Amanda is part of your core and you take her out, you probably leave right after her. Even if you are aligned with Amanda and want to take out Helen, it is suicide to do it when you still need Helen's support to run the house.

monty924 said...

DRINK

Hillarious

Joe in NY said...

That's not a horrible plan, but they could have just let Spencer win.

Dramahold said...

That was a dumb plan.

monty924 said...

Wth??? Elissa's dumb routine is worth another DRINK!

Dramahold said...

If they let Spencer win, he takes himself own ... And Andy doesn't want blood on his hands.

Dramahold said...

Down

monty924 said...

Once again, I'm in agreement with Joe. They should have let it be Spencer and he would have went along with the plan willingly. You just can't ask someone on the block to throw the comp. Otherwise, the plan was brilliant.

Dramahold said...

Monty - pace yourself, we still 20 minutes.

Sharon said...

Aryan is kind of like Andy at this point. She's got an alliance (or agreement) with Helen, and she's aligned with with McManda too. And like Andy, she'll flip when someone falls.

Becky said...

Monty, please do contactg me. I was on the AOL Beagle Board and learned all kinds of tricks and things to do. Like if they wet a pee pad or owned the floor wipe the liquid up and then put it in a place in the yard that you want her to use. Put her on a leash and lead her to it. Suggested times a day.... every two-three hours. Their bladders are little. No more Off Topics from me.

monty924 said...

Lol @ Drama. It's just so much fun to DRINK during the pool parties. I think I may be the lone drunk here tonight though. Who's my driver? Petals? :)))

Dramahold said...

Aaryn made horrible moves early but really got herself back,in the game. It's a survival strategy but its worked for her. And she does have connections to both sides. Next week could be crucial.

Dramahold said...

Oh the suspense is killingme

monty924 said...

Why did she fold? It's the last question... DUH

monty924 said...

Thanks, Becky. She's not my puppy, but I'm in charge of her during the day. Frustrating because my Joey (BT) was so easy to house break.

lynn1 said...

I guess my problem is that I don't find anyone I want to cheer for. I enjoy seeing people get knocked off when they aren't expecting it. with the exception of Judd getting backed doored, lately the evictions have been r more personal rather than inspired game play.

Joe in NY said...

Beagles are notoriously hard to housebreak. Good luck, Monty!

Joe in NY said...

Depends on how you look at it, Lynn. Certainly the Candace eviction was nasty and personal. But for the most part, all the evictions were of people not in the two alliances. They had to be weeded out. The floater strategy was/is totally ineffective this season for that reason.

Joe in NY said...

I find it hard to believe that Helen has bought so much of this crap. I mean, she can't possibly give an ounce of credence to a McCrae alliance if she has even half a brain.

Dramahold said...

I am SO hoping for Spencer to win HOH tomorrow.

Dramahold said...

Joe in NY - Macrae doesn't want Amanda to win because then he would HAVE to marry her.

RBennie said...

Well it looks like Helen is toast. I can't believe she is falling for this.

lynn1 said...

I think most of these folks are suffering from something similar to a form of Stockholm syndrome. They are willing to believe anything one of the power brokers tells them

Anonymous said...

I think Helen out smarted herself this time. Thats what he gets, as much I dislike Amanda, Helen needs to go for being so STUPID, did she really think that he would turn on Amanda this early in the game, she's taking care of his needs, I bet he doesn't get that too much outside of this house, look how unsanitary he looks.

monty924 said...

Helen was really freaking out that Andy was going to put her up and out.

Dramahold said...

Andy wusses out on back dooming Helen? I've lost what little respect I had for him.

Anonymous said...

I CAN'T STAND HOW RUDE AND ARROGANT AMANDA & MCCRAE ARE!!!! Who do they think they are? They ALWAYS have ANDY'S HOH BED!!!!!!
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! PQ

Joe in NY said...

Drama, I don't doubt McCrae wants to win. My only point is that Helen can't possibly trust the defection. I mean, even if McCrae really wanted to abandon Amanda, Helen can't let herself believe it because of the relationship between McCrae and Amanda.

lynn1 said...

I love Spencers words to Andy! LOL

Dramahold said...

I REALLY want Spencer to win HOH tomorrow.

Joe in NY said...

And from an objective standpoint, McCrae has a better chance opposite Amanda than Helen.

Anonymous said...

ANdy doesn't even kick people out of his HOH bed. NO backbone. FOR ANYTHING let alone a big move. PQ

RBennie said...

Well it looks like Helen is toast. I can't believe she is falling for this.

monty924 said...

Well, that was fun folks. Thank you Jackie for hosting. Will see everyone tomorrow night.

lynn1 said...

Thanks Jackie. See all of you tomorrow

Jackie said...

PQ - Andy is the first HoH this season who actually kicks people out of his HoH room at night and won't share it.

Dramahold said...

IJoe - I thinkmHelen is treading carefully. Elissa really isn't a strong ally. Aaryn is sitting on the fence and we know where you get splinters when that happens. The odds are really working against Helen.

Anonymous said...

GREAT IDEA! I hope Spencer wins HOH, too!!!! PQ

Jackie said...

Thanks for stopping by!

Sharon said...

Since Andy won HOH, he has not allowed anyone to sleep in his bed at night (don't know about the day though). Plus, he wouldn't give it up to the Bride & Groom last night either. Andy came right out and said said that he's too selfish to give it up. lol

Sharon S said...

Lynn -- I agree -- most have Stockholm syndrome and Helen and Amanda are holding them hostage!

Dramahold said...

G'NIGHT everyone. I'll work on my typing before tomorrow.

Anonymous said...

That is great, Jackie! I'm glad Andy does it at least at night. It just looks so weird the way he gives up his power seat/bed to Amanda & McCrae. Thanks for everything, Jackie! PQ

Sharon said...

Thanks for hosting the party Jackie!

Anonymous said...

Thanks, Sharon! PQ

Becky said...

Jackie, thank you for hosting. See you tomorrow night.

uncartie said...

I think the show tonight was heavily edited to make Helen look foolish and inept. I don't buy it for a minute. She may have come off looking that way tonight but it's because she has never or rarely confronted people.

I doubt she's as easy to fool as the show made her look.

Anonymous said...

Amanda is ..impressive?

She is ruthless, even to use McCrae..

And now this..wow, if she pulls this off she will be the greatest of BB ever (meaning nothing, of course)

She plays us as well as them (?)
Nice. All I have to say. (Not a fan of the negative things she has exhibited, let's get that out of the way). She might just be the 'next generation' of BB...

Anonymous said...

wow. this supermajority is really getting arrogant. telling Spencer to throw the veto comp when he is the nom!? hahahahahahaha are you kidding me, do they think everyone is beneath them? oh yes they do.
