Aaryn is the HOH. Trying to figure out the votes on how David got the boot. If she's smart (probably not) she'll figure Jeremy had a hand in it.

Only to keep his hands clean. Spencer is the key. The girls HAVE to figure out their connection if they want to stay and not get 'moved' out.

Nothing new here, just more of the same. Discusses the guys and their misogyny, and more racist comments from the girls about Helen from yesterday.

On a funnier note, there is a major misinformation campaign in play right now by the MC and the floaters (basically everyone who voted out David) to confuse the hell out of the people ho voted out Elissa. The upshot is, if it makes it to TV it should be some entertaining TV into who voted for who.

Might actually be out. While I like the twist of the MVP and how that can screw things up, I don't like that America chooses. No way to know if it is truly who America voted for. The editing can skew how people are perceived.

Add to this the "cheating" that supposedly went on in regards to the past HOH comp and I am close to bailing on this.

Maybe I'm naive, but I don't think there is anyway CBS would award the MVP to anyone who didn't actually receive the most votes. They're charging a buck a text, so surely the whole process has some oversight, right?

some people seem to forget that bb is aired on broadcast tv, and therefore subject to the rules and regulations of the fcc. if they rigged any part of the game, they would be fined and/or shut down for good.

due to cbs and endemol contractual obligations, both inside and outside the house, i suspect they do everything they can to avoid crossing the fcc, inviting a lawsuit, or asking for any negative publicity regarding deception. that would not only permanently tarnish their reputations, but would ultimately end a successful show, and open both companies up to a heap of unwanted trouble from many different directions. it's simply not worth it.

There was a Survivor lawsuit some time ago where it was ruled that reality shows are not subject to gameshow regulations. Also, the fine print on the CBS website gives them the right to reject any vote for any reason.

1000 times this. It is not classified as a game show and thus does not have to follow those regulations.

game show regulations are not the only tools available if there actually was wrong doing.

Yowza... some NSFW action last night.


Big Brother 15 Amanda Nude
You need to upgrade your Flash Player

Also around midnight, it sounds like Jeremy and Kaitlin's relationship progressed.

Amanda is out there sometimes. It reflects in her play, not disciplined. More NSFW between Jer and Kait but that is going to be most nights when they have time alone these days.

ok, let's say you're right, the votes are fixed, and the producers are altering votes just to give viewers the illusion of participating without influencing the outcome.

why do you watch? why would anyone watch? and why would anyone try out to be on the show? if you really believe it's true, and watch anyway, why complain?

Where did I complain? I watch because I like the show. I really don't care if the producers are fixing votes. We all know they try to direct the drama in the house via the diary room. It's part of the show.

BTW, I didn't say that they ARE fixing votes, just that they could based on the language used on the website.

Jeremy was the MVP nom. He won Veto and took himself off the block. The MVP (Elissa) replaced him with Nick.

So Either Helen gets screwed this week, Elissa gets tossed because the MC can't pull it together, or Nick goes home and I think the MC falls apart (McCrae hooking up with Amanda and Elissa, Howard, Spencer, and Jeremy forming a new MC).

The last half of that sentence is speculation on my part. I would be willing to bet money Helen goes home.

Shoulda put up Kaitlyn as replacement nom. She was already freaking about it and it would put her over the edge and Jeremy with her.

anything can happen in 3 days in this house, but i never imagined that elissa might have a chance. this could get interesting. my first thought was 8-3 (elisaa/nick, zero helen votes), elissa gone, mc exposed.

i like helen, and as smart as she is, her game hasn't been. mccrae might come around, and if jeremy and aaryn change their minds, helen could be gone (jeremy has a mind?).

i would love for someone in this house to finally figure out there are three nominees, not two with a perpetual pawn, and swing votes to the third nom to control the vote. maybe next week.

Jeremy created a new five person alliance of himself, Kait, Aaryn, Spencer and Howard. This will supersede the MC but the other MC members won't know about it. Not sure how solid it is at this point.

Amanda figured out the boy alliance..not all the members but that they are working together..cause Spencer has been lying to everyone and they compared notes. McCray is still lying to her about his part in it...even when Amanda made him swear on their future babies that he doesn't know anything.

As a result Amanda is scrambling for votes to keep Elissa and vote out Nick. Right now she has Jessi, Andy, Judd, Howard(not solid) and herself. She'll use McCray to vote only if needed to break a tie so if he gets hinky it could explode things between them.

No idea. I use an app for updates and browser for live feeds and read jokers just for the discussion forums.

Oh you mean the daily summaries. Its very hit/miss on those at Jokers but the running updates always work.

None of the MC have splintered off. As of now they will keep Nick and move forward as planned. Any other side alliances are for show--an attempt to placate those paranoid about some combination of Spencer, Howard, Jeremy, and Nick working together.

The only way Elissa stays is if 1.)Amanda breaks McCrae away from the MC or 2.) Aaryn and/or Kaitlin are convinced (by the DR or by MC stupidity) that there is an all male alliance.

There is also an outside chance that Aaryn and Kaitlin could have a spat, causing Aaryn to break away on her own.

Just catching up on the thread.... Out of 5 cable providers of course mine would be the only one that doesn't get tvgn lol, so no reporting from me this year. Watching BB without BBAD is painful!! I have no idea what there "real" personalities are...

I read abt Aryn, Ginamarie and Spencer - would've preferred to see/hear it for myself, but doesn't look like it was edited to look worse than it was etc... Shame on them!!

@ Waldorf - pic = hilarious

I'm feeling sooo sorry for the other HG's - having to sit there and here this crap, and not being able to really address it or even hearing comments being made about other HG's. Wow. How awful!

Didn't really care for Elissa, but she's def got my vote as at least she said something, as it's much better coming from her than others. Oh, I guess this is what Aryn meant by "She's the cause of a lot of arguments in the house".

I can't believe I'm actually kinda liking Elissa. I *loathed* her sister and fully expected to not like her either. Surprising!
