Well, it’s Monday and you know what that means — it’s my busy day and it’s also the day when I usually post my shortest, most rushed update.
Usually that doesn’t matter because, with this current Big Brother cast, nothing interesting ever happens on Sunday or Monday. (Or Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday…)
However, last night — things actually got a little bit interesting. For a while, it looked like the entire game could be turned upside down. Now, it looks like it probably won’t happen but there’s still a small chance that, at today’s veto ceremony, Aaryn might end up nominating Amanda.
I have to thank Kevin11 for posting most of the details under the previous post but here’s the long and the short of it:
Helen has figured out that she’s the target this week and she’s gone into full campaign mood. Say what you will about Helen but at least she isn’t taking her eviction lying down.
Helen went to Aaryn last night and had a very long conversation with her. Fortunately for her, Helen picked the perfect opportunity to talk to Aaryn. As we all saw on last night’s episode, Amanda has been making jealous and snarky comments ever since Aaryn beat her to win Head of Household. Meanwhile, Aaryn has allowed the fact that she’s won HoH four times totally go to her head. (Seriously, Aaryn has spent the majority of her fourth HoH obsessing on the fact that Janelle holds the record for most competitions won with 9. Aaryn wants that record!) Aaryn is getting sick of being ordered around by someone who hasn’t won a single challenge. As well, Aaryn was drunk last night which meant that she was even more vulnerable to Helen’s brand of ass-kissing than she usually is.
Essentially, Helen told Aaryn that she needed to nominate and backdoor Amanda and, for a while at least, it looked like Aaryn was seriously considering the idea.
During their conversation, Aaryn also told Helen the truth about Andy. Needless to say, Helen was shocked to discover that Andy is not — and never has been — her biggest ally in the house.
Now, before anyone gets too excited, Aaryn later told Amanda the full details of her conversation with Helen. I imagine that Aaryn will probably turn on Amanda (or Amanda will turn on Aaryn, depending on who has the power in the house) but it probably won’t happen this week.
In other words, it would be neat if Amanda went up on the block but I get the feeling that, when it comes time to announce her decision, Aaryn will still play it safe and go with Spencer.
We’ll find out later today!
