As Big Brother slowly comes to an end, not much is going on in the house. Part 3 of the HoH competition will take place on Wednesday. It’ll be Gina Marie vs. Andy and whichever one wins will probably take Spencer to the final two.
Until Wednesday, the final three are just hanging out and spending most of their time talking about how little they think of the former houseguests who will be deciding who walks out of the house with half a million dollars. For whatever reason, they especially seem to hate Elissa.
When they’re not complaining about Elissa, Andy and Spencer are spending their time speculating about whether or not Julie was drunk during last week’s live eviction.
Seriously, when Gina Marie is the classiest person in the house, you know you’ve got some problems!
Unlike some people, I’m not prepared to declare this to be the worst season of Big Brother ever. Big Brother 9 will always have that title, if just because the end result of Adam winning was him using the money to try to set himself up as a drug lord and going to prison as a result.
I have to admit, though, that I could totally imagine Spencer using his prize money to try to go all Breaking Bad and set up a meth ring.
As for last night’s episode, it was the annual Big Brother clip show. These clip shows always seem rather awkward to me. It’s always obvious that the houseguests have been ordered to sit in the kitchen and pretend to have a spontaneous conversation about the season. Andy may be a good liar but he’s a terrible actor and that was pretty obvious during last night’s episode.
For the most part, the previously unseen footage was nothing surprising.
We got to see Jeremy stealing the wine and then threatening to scalp everyone. I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that I’m glad Jeremy got voted out early.
We got to see Amanda and McCrae’s wedding. I have to admit that the spectacle was kinda sickening just because I know, from the live feeds, that Amanda was wearing an unwashed bed sheet. Playing the role of the minister, Andy looked like an anemic vampire.
We got to see a bit more of Amanda bullying Elissa. As I watched that, I seriously found myself wondering how even Amanda could possibly be so deluded to think that her behavior would lead to a positive outcome.
We also got to see Amanda and GinaMarie going at it the night before Amanda was evicted. As much as I dislike Amanda, I have to admit that it always annoyed me that McCrae would never stand up for her. Seriously, way to be a crappy boyfriend.
Previous clip shows have always featured at least a few quirky or fun moments that served to humanize the houseguests. Last night’s clip show was just one fight after another.
Since this season began, we’ve been talking about what should have been done differently. As the season comes to a close, now seems like a good time to ask: “What would you do to make Big Brother 16 better than Big Brother 15?”
I’ll be sharing some of my ideas tomorrow.
