Are you looking forward to tonight’s episode? I am, even though I know every thing that’s going to happen. However, I can’t wait to see both Helen’s reaction to discovering that she’s the target and her efforts to turn Aaryn against Amanda. Plus, we’ll get to see the veto competition.
So, tonight’s episode might actually be a good one.
As for what’s going on in the house — well, not much. Helen seems to know that she’s going home but, to her credit, she hasn’t stopped campaigning to stay. Unfortunately, it’s a bit too late for Helen to flip the house. Her fate was sealed weeks ago when she refused to vote out Amanda.
At this point, Helen has been forced to going with the “good vs. evil argument.” This is the argument where a houseguest says that she should be allowed to stay in the house because she (and, by extension, the people who support her) are “good” people and therefore, voting her out will allow the bad people to win.
As McCrae correctly put it after listening to Helen’s pitch, this argument is essentially “Nerdherd 2.0.”
So, for the most part, Helen and Elissa have spent the past few days talking about how they’re both good people and everyone else in the house is a bad person. Helen has cried at least once a day. To be honest, it would be difficult to watch if the tears were being shed by anyone but Helen.
Last night, there were two interesting conversations in the house.
Around 1:00 a.m., Helen and Elissa were talking about Amanda. Helen said, “Maybe America was the MVP and they were trying to send us a message.” Gee, Helen, you think? Seriously, it’s not as if Helen didn’t have a hundred clues that Amanda would turn on her.
A little bit later, Amanda and McCrae had several conversations about who their next target is going to be. As much as Amanda irrationally hates Elissa, it appears that Elissa might be safe next week. Instead, Amanda and McCrae were saying that next week, Aaryn needed to go because Amanda no longer trusts Aaryn (and is jealous of the fact that Aaryn can actually win competitions and wear a thong without making everyone watching the live feeds physically ill). So, McCrae and Amanda’s plan appears to be to nominate Aaryn and (yawn) Spencer next week.
Of course, Amanda is assuming that either she or McCrae will win HoH on Thursday and she doesn’t realize that an evicted Houseguest will be reentering the house.
Later on, Amanda and McCrae wandered into the HoH bedroom where they joined Aaryn in having a conversation where they speculated about what the viewers think about each of the houseguests. Amanda said that the viewers at home probably hated her but loved McCrae.
Well, Amanda, I thought, you’re half right.
