    I think being a floater is generally a good strategy in Big Brother, at least for the first half of the season. It allows you to fly under the radar, but still forge strong personal relationships. When the time is right to make a move, the floaters are often in the best position. For example, Jessie, Andy and Judd could join together and then flip the script at some point and change the whole game. By using their three votes as leverage, they could make some key deals that would get them very far. Since there are three people on the block every time, three votes is HUGE, especially deep in the game.

    It's unbelievable how little screen time she gets. I'm not really privy to what's going on with the live feeds, but the way they edit it on the show makes it seem like she's a complete non-factor. I always find it interesting how much the editing can affect how America views the players. It's my understanding that Amanda comes off as kind of a ***** on the live feeds, but that's not the case at all on the show.

    The only close relationship Jesse has is with Judd. She is certainly aligned with the house majority right now but she had a hard time fitting in at the beginning of the season. The mean girls let her tag along with them but treated her like dirt. The other side did not associate with her because they did not know if they could trust her. When the coup to kick Nick out happened getting her on board is pretty much what broke her away from Aaryn, Kaitlyn, and GM.

    Kaitlyn says she stands up for gay people in a post eviction interview when asked about her comment that gay people are untrustworthy in a game like BB.

    http://insidetv.ew.com/2013/07/26/big-brother-kaitlin-says-not-racist/

    At the bottom of the article is an audio file that has the whole interview.

    The best (or worst) part is when she explains away her comment about telling Candice that her "black was coming out"

    Kaitlyn said that Candice would always say that she had a white side and a black side. Ok, nothing wrong with that statement until you realize that Kaitlyn is saying that Candice has (good) white side and a (bad) black side because her blackside came out when she got into it with GM.

    The house did make the smart move continuing to vote out the strongest people. I was surprised not more players could figure out that it was nobody in the house had MVP. I suspect this week they will figure it out, especially since Helen already mentioned it from the very beginning.

    I agree Judd's HOH was a complete bust. It was a useless week overall in the grand scheme of his game in my opinion. I am sure I don't have the whole story as to what was said' and promised this week to him but it seems like he did not use the HOH to his advantage. One thing I can say was a plus for him is that he came out of it without much blood on his hands.

    I was routing for Spencer, Andy or Howard to win HOH, hoping to see how they played their alliances. But if that could not happen one of the best results is Aaryn having the power. With the amount of promises she made to houseguests she is going to have a hard time keeping them all happy.

    I would love Elissa to get on the block or even better get voted by MVP again. As already stated with her not playing Veto itsthe week to move her butt out. (Even as sad as I would be to watch her little butt walk out ;)

    Just realized that I don't think Julie has talked with the current HoH privately at all on the live show this season. "Remember that your housemates cannot hear you so feel free to speak your mind"

    Not sure it's missed but it was nice to occasionally see how somebody was thinking when asked directly.

    That was the aim since he didn't even want to be HOH. He'd much rather have been Andy this round. Either Aaryn or Kaitlyn going would be good for his game. It takes out people who are better at comps than him and he isn't blamed for it.

    He wanted it. He said as much in his HOH blog.

    At the very least, you need to use the power of HoH to make some deals that guarantee your safety. Like you said, all we know is what we see, but they never once showed Judd negotiating with any of the other players in any way shape or form.

    It's certainly been a very unique season in this regard. So far, every single player that has gotten voted out has been either a strong player, a smart player, or both. It never goes down like this.

    I hadn't even thought about that. I kind of like when Julie does this. Maybe they are waiting until later in the season.

    Not sure if serious. I'll use your source: 'I nominated Kaitlin and Aaryn for eviction this week and by doing that I was hoping to not ruffle any feathers.' His HOH was to go along and to get along not to make any moves. Perhaps you mean he wanted HOH for the bed and snacks. :)

    i respectfully disagree. he left hoh without becoming a bigger target, he maintained his alliances, it was the first unanimous vote all season, and one of the bigger competitors against his alliances was eliminated.

    could it have be better? sure, but it could have been a whole lot worse. all in all, i say it was mission accomplished.

    Not wanting to ruffle feathers by nominating the two biggest pariahs in the house is not the same as not wanting HOH.

    The point is there was no game moves to be made, he's not on anyone radar and he doesn't want anyone in particular to leave, if anything he raised his profile which he did not want at this stage, thus he left the choices to others. If AM/Mc/Ellen/Ellissa could've agreed on Howard/Spencer up he'd have equally ok with it.

    Why did he try and get HOH at all then? He just wants to be seen as competent not a total country bumpkin although that has worked for him thus far. He wanted to win HOH like I want to win the lottery.

    So many BB episodes kind of mix them all together for me, but WTH was with Elissa's vignette of picking on Amanda? Seemed pretty harsh and personal, not to mention extended. Amanda strikes me as a pretty tough chick and if Elissa reduced her to crying in the bathroom then it went too far (IMO).
