So, was it just me or was last night’s episode of Big Brother kinda weird? In just a few weeks time, all of the big personalities have been taken out of the house. With the eviction of both Amanda and Elissa on Thursday, the show lost the two players who have dominated probably about 75% of this season.
Last night was the first episode since the show started that we did NOT have to listen to Amanda in the Diary Room. Now, for me, this is kind of a blessing because, whenever I saw Amanda in the Diary Room with the little smirk on her face and robotically delivering jokes that were obviously fed to her ahead of time, it was like listening to nails on chalk board.
However, now that Amanda is gone, last night’s episode seemed to be dominated by Andy. Seriously, it seemed like every time I looked up at the TV screen, there was that red-faced little rat. I know that, since the show started, Andy has been one of the HGs that most frequently gets called to the Diary Room and I’ve heard him saying, in the past, that he hoped they were using his Diary Room visits for the show.
Well, now, they are and, to be honest, it would probably be better for Andy if they hadn’t. If you didn’t dislike Andy before, just wait until you see him in the Diary Room.
After last night’s show, Rachel Reilly tweeted that she’s never going to watch Big Brother again. Now, I have to say that Rachel says this pretty frequently but I can understand why she was upset after last night’s episode. While Elissa did get on my nerves with her constant plea of “Please don’t vote me out!”, it was impossible not to feel sorry for her as Andy (who apparently has no conscience) continually called her a liar.
Don’t get me wrong. I think Elissa deserved to get voted out because, honestly, she wasn’t that good of a player. I’m just not happy about the way it happened.
(Of course, we also know what the show didn’t tell us — that the remaining HGs spent the rest of the night saying some amazingly vile things about Elissa and throwing her stuff around the house.)
Anyway, as for what’s happening the house right now, GM and McCrae are the nominees but McCrae has won the veto. I believe they’re having the Veto Ceremony today.
When last I checked, Andy and Spencer were trying to convince McCrae to either not use the veto at all or to use the veto on GM. McCrae, however, told them: “If I wouldn’t use the veto save Amanda, why the f*ck would I save GM?”
The plan right now is that once McCrae uses the veto, Judd will go up as the replacement nominee and will be voted out (for a second time) on Wednesday.
As a final note, as much as I would have hated the idea of Amanda winning the game, now I have to prepare myself for the fact that it looks like Andy or Spencer could very well end up winning.
As much criticism as this season has received, we all know that Big Brother will return next season. Alison Grodner may or may not return and they may replace some people involved in casting this season but the show will return.
When it does return, I hope they’ll have an entirely new house. Can you imagine being a houseguest on Big Brother 16 and knowing that you’re in the same room that once housed Spencer and McCrae? I can’t look at either one of them without thinking about bedbugs. What they need to do is build an entirely new house and perhaps have a priest come in and bless it.
Seriously, this season is going to leave some evil spirits that need to be exorcised!
