    He can't win HoH. POV is his only chance to stay alive.

    Speaking of the double eviction, it definitely screwed any chance Elissa had to remain in the game. McCrae falsely assumed that she went back on her word. If it was a normal week, she would have had time to convince McCrae that it was Andy who betrayed him. I don't think she would have been successful, but at least she would have had a fighting chance.

    IDK, Aaryn won comps and did the bidding of McCrae and Amanda. Out of those three Aaryn was much better at the comps. Much of their power was social. For whatever reason people were afraid of Amanda. Till the last couple comps she didn't win any comps and hadn't really shown much (other then the baseball catch thing). She was able to turn it on a bit. She did pretty well at that bowling thing as well she missed it by a second or two and was targeted by the others.

    I do agree it was probably personal but getting Aaryn out ahead of those two really wasn't a horrible move either.

    I was a bit surprised that McCrae didn't fall on his sword and let her win the POV in the bowling comp. That and he didn't use it on her and try to work some votes to save both. Perhaps this might have added to why Elisa thought maybe McCrae stabbed her in the back instead of Andy. He has fooled most of the house this season. He is a weasel and I hope they figure it out before he wins the money.

    I think he's forged plenty of relationships. In fact, he's easily one of the most well liked players in the house. He also formed some alliances that could have potentially carried him to the end. His main downfall is that his girlfriend turned out to be a psycho mega-*****.

    i figured it was the smartest move for both of them. amanda was such a big target, no matter what, she was a goner. at least mccrae had a few relationships in the house, and could find a way to go forward in the game. if he does move to florida with her, they could share any money he might win, and he wouldn't be flat broke.

    I will second the conspiracy that BB producers only had 2 bones in specific houseguests "yards". If I was playing the game regardless if the HOH competition was over I would have kept searching for my 2. LOL I thought it relevant that they asked them to IMMEDIATELY leave the competition and go back inside. I understand live tv constraints and all but I would have wanted to know I actually had a chance to win and it was not setup.

    As to the ongoing conversation about Elissa's intelligence I think we have all come to the conclusion that this cast of players were some of the worst Big Brother players in some time. Usually you get a couple bad players in the mix but this year I think the majority of "smart" players were evicted early. Not to say the earlier houseguests were more intelligent but as to playing the game they would have been better players overall in my opinion. Elissa could not hide her emotions well, she could not think through her moves more then a week or two.

    McRea does not have a chance in my opinion to get to the end without a win streak of vetos.

    Andy has to be given props as he is still going strong with his cons.

    GM so loves the Thug life style.

    Spencer must have a lifevest in this game... 8x nominated?? jeez

    Judd - You won another competition - keep doing that and you may have a chance to win this!

    Except that SHE thought that McRae had voted out Amanda.

    I don't like double evictions. I think it goes against the spirit of the game. Just like the MVP did earlier this season. So much of the game happens between competitions where things can change on actions and reactions to what houseguests do. How many times have we seen over the years where a "pawn" ended up going home. That can never happen on a double eviction.

    In this case though, I think Elissa goes home anyway, unless he could flip someone from the Exterminators, and the only one who would possibly flip would be Andy.

    Maybe there's more to it but I cannot believe Elissa (or anyone) would give another person their wedding ring to use as some kind of faithful promise of a vote. What kind of person thinks this is acceptable?

    you're not alone, but it surprises me, since the de has been around for so long. the trouble comes when an alliance doesn't prepare for the de, and are blindsided during the live show.

    i think it's a great way to shake up the game, and it makes it more entertaining to me.

    True, but if they had time to compare notes, it's possible that they would have realized that they were both played by Andy.

    I agree. The double evictions mess with the natural flow of the show, as they don't give people a chance to strategize. Someone can be playing a great game and get totally screwed by the double eviction.

    I also hate the DE, but particularly in the end game (like now).

    Is next week another effective DE separated by a day or is the first elim not live and held off for TV, giving more time between? If they are live eliminations one day after each other why not do them same night? After a final four post-Wednesday I doubt any scrambling will change anyone's mind on who they want to go to final 3.

    ...or a person wearing costume jewelry in the house, so giving it away means nothing...

    I think Elissa would have said it was fake when Julie brought up the ring during the exit interview.

    I don't think that's how she rolls anyway. You saw her busting out laughing almost every time she tried to lie in the house.

    She is a terrible liar, but I can relate as I'm a pretty bad liar myself. Not a good thing in BB.

    On the other hand, I wonder if those close to Andy in real life will view him with different eyes after they've seen on BB just how well he lies.

    Between the time when McCrae won HOH and the nominations, what was with the arguement about whether Elissa knew about Judd's eviction? McCrae is HOH, not Judd. Why would that be a determining factor in who McCrae nominated last night?

    That was before the POV ceremony (wasn't it?) - and Judd had POV.

    Was it? Maybe you're right...I can't remember. It does seem that the Judd eviction was all Helen and/or Amanda's doing at the last second and everyone else seemed shocked...but they ALL voted him out.

    I know it was Helen who pulled over the HoH (Aaryn I think) and told her to make Judd the target. I think at that point of the game Helen and Amanda were still on the same side. Helen said in retrospect voting Judd out and not targeting Amanda at that point was her biggest mistake. She could have had Amanda out without her putting up a fight if she did it then, and she'd still be in the game.
