    No real surprises here I suppose. We figured Aaryn was going home. How interesting that Elissa succeeds in getting out her original target and she's unhappy about it. You screwed up Elissa, and once again, McRanda wind up running the house, by getting out who they wanted.

    Was nice to see Julie have a backbone and call Aaryn out on her comments, and even went as far as reading a few of them outloud to her. I knew Aaryn was going to play the "I'm from the South" card. If that's really a reflection on how Southerners behave, then that's really very sad. I hope Julie is right and she reflects on her behavior, but I kind of doubt it.

    Another extended HoH competition. I'm debating whether to go look to see who won. I'm kind of afraid to find out!!

    And another double eviction next week. I had a feeling that was coming since they brought back someone and there's what, 2-3 weeks left?

    I wonder if Andy will stick with the "Exterminators" or slink back to McRanda. I bet if Mcranda wins HoH Andy will be back with them in a heartbeat.

    I wondered why GM didn't vote to keep Aaryn in the house, even as a sign of solidarity with "her girl". Aaryn explained why, but I don't think it matters one way or the other, I think GM and Elissa are the next target of McRanda if they win HoH.

    Why does it almost always seem that the one person most don't want to win a specific competition actually wins? I haven't seen any statistics, but in years of watching the show, it's uncanny how often this at least seems to happen.

    And how did GM still almost win after dropping her ball with a score of like 90 or so? Did Amanda drop hers? If so, it wasn't shown.

    I think because that person is usually susceptible to being put up, and thus tries harder? I dunno.

    I think Amanda went very slowly. The others were going quickly and kept dropping the balls.

    anyone i know in the south would have been shocked and embarrassed by her comments. i've never understood why others think southerners behave like a "hive mind" - that we think and act the same way, or that we all agree with a group of bigoted people who lived here 50 years ago, before i was born.

    are there bigots in the south? sure. there are bigots in california and new york, too. check out the list of hate groups listed online by the slpc, it shows that the number of hate groups increases with population, no matter where you live in the country:

    I agree. I felt very embarrassed for you in the south when she said that. That was really horrible. Blaming it on a "southern upbringing" is terrible. She just can't help herself. She's very naive. Maybe her family is very old school south, and she gets her ideas from that. What a shame!

    GM seemed to be going twice as fast as most of the others in the HoH comp. Hope that pans out and she can get some revenge. :)

    I also cringed at Aaryn's "I'm from the South" comment. I really wonder if she even knows or remembers what she says.

    I was happy to see the floaters finally realize they have the numbers and form an alliance. It's just a shame Elissa is such a bad player that she never reached out to any of them during her reign as HoH. It was a golden opportunity for her to solidify some deals, but instead she basically wasted her HoH. Now she's on the outside of the alliance, and it's going to be tough for her to make it to the end. Not that she deserves to. She is seriously one of the worst players I've ever seen. Even her taped goodbye to Aaryn was a huge blunder. Here is someone that will be casting a vote at the end of the game. Why on Earth wouldn't she at least try to make it seem like she felt bad for evicting her. Say something like "I know we had our differences in the house, but I honestly fought for you to stay. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get the numbers. Oh well, I'll probably be joining you next week, since McRanda and Andy are clearly gunning for me."

    My how things can change quickly in the BB house. Suddenly, it's not looking so good for McRanda. If neither of them wins HoH this week, I think it's almost a fact that they will both be on the block. With the double eviction, they could both very well be heading to the jury this week.

    That interview with Aaryn after she was evicted was one of the most uncomfortable things I've ever seen. I had been waiting for it with eager anticipation all season, but when it finally came, I almost felt bad for her. She was like a deer caught in the headlights. I don't think she saw that coming at all. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad Julie called her out on everything, but it was still hard to watch someone get lambasted on live TV like that.

    I read what Aaryn said quite a bit different than you guys. I felt that she was saying the viewership was ascribing her these racist tendencies because THEY are stereotyping her because she is Southern.

    The audience laughing at Aaryn's answers was kinda awesome. I'm sure she wasn't expecting that.

    So are the others going to be called out on this on live TV, or just Aaryn? Given the TV edit the others have gotten, I suspect the latter.

    with all of the coverage of aayrn's comments, i really couldn't see that jc had another way to go with the exit interview.

    yes, aaryn was stunned, and her face turned a shade of plum, but it wasn't because she was embarrassed by what she said - she finally realized that someone overheard her, and called her out for what she "thought(?)" were "private" comments.

    julie quoting aaryn to her face made this season worth watching, and it was satisfying to watch aaryn squirm. maybe she'll think twice before making comments like that ever again.

    One can only hope so. I just worry that hatred like that is too deep seeded.

    My feeling is that, when she goes back to her family and friends, who may very well be just like her, she'll act as she always did. For once I thought Julie handled the interview very well. I was really wondering how they were going to handle it. Kudos to CBS for calling her out on it. Maybe they had to make peace with the viewers and HAD to call her out. But they could have softballed it and they didn't.

    On Elissa, I guess she didn't think she would have gotten Aaryn's vote anyway, so it didn't matter what she said to her.

    Don't know if it's been mention in other BB threads, but I always found it interesting how her name is spelled.

    Yeah, I think it was mentioned. I noticed that right away when the stuff came out about the racist comments.

    Julie was appalled and personally offended by Aaryn's comments in the house. Considering her husband is the head of the network, it was pretty obvious she wasn't going to pull any punches. I agree that she handled it very well.

    It's too bad Aaryn went to jury instead of having to do the interview rounds right away. Kudos for Julie/CBS for laying it out there, thought for sure they were going to fill the audience with CBS puppets or change timing ala Howard. Loled when Aaryn said she was now good friends with Candace.

    I spotted actors in the audience so they did try to stuff it with CBS friendlies and she still got booed.

    I watched the east coast feed online so didn't record. Were they wearing uniforms? :)

    No uniforms just recognized some people from other shows. Like spotting someone in Hells Kitchen.
