I wanted to post a quick update and give y’all a new page to comment under before I hit the road on my vacation.
Elissa is Head of Household. She nominated Aaryn and McCrae for eviction. As I mentioned in my previous post, I wasn’t too happy that Elissa decided not to nominate Amanda but I could see her logic.
Afterall, Aaryn wins every competition.
And Amanda wins nothing, right?
Somehow, Amanda won the power of veto. I’ve read all sorts of conspiracy theories online about Amanda suddenly winning the one challenge that she needed to win.
There’s a part of me that does think the whole game is being rigged and that the challenge probably was specifically designed to allow Amanda to win. That part of me also thinks that Elissa would have gotten a Pandora’s Box if Amanda hadn’t won the veto. There’s more than one way to rig a game, after all.
The more rational part of me that feels that Amanda knew she was going to have to win this challenge and, as a result, she actually focused and made an effort to win.
After all, this has been the first week that either she or McCrae has actually been in danger. This is the first week that either one of them really had to win a challenge.
It’s hard to say for sure because the challenge was not broadcast over the live feeds. Everyone will have to wait until Wednesday to see how Amanda won that veto and even then, we’ll always wonder if we’re seeing the whole story or just a selectively edited version.
Anyway, Amanda is going to veto McCrae and she’ll probably give one of her standard, “I’m-so-cute” speeches when she does it. Elissa says that she’s going to nominate Andy in McCrae’s place.
Andy is sobbing about it.
So, who goes home? Andy or Aaryn? As of right now, it looks like Amanda and McCrae will vote to to evict Aaryn while GM will vote to evict Andy. Judd might be planning to vote to evict Andy but his vote still seems like it might be up in the air. Spencer might end up being the swing vote and I have a feeling that Spencer will vote to keep Andy around.
Finally, how will last Thursday’s HoH competition is portrayed on tonight’s show. Will we see Jessie cursing out Amanda after she falls? Will they acknowledge the crazy fan who somehow popped up in the backyard? Though I’m going to miss tonight’s episode, I’ve got the DVR set to record it so I can find out once I return home.
Bye for now and stay supple,
