'Big Brother 15': Andy plays it safe
Anyway, the show makes us relive Candice and GinaMarie's fight -- turns out they kept at it all throughout the live eviction, including that Candice's birth mom didn't want her and that she's fat. GinaMarie is super gross but they're both absolutely ridiculous.
Then we have to relive the sped-up "Big Brother" episode that ended in Judd's blindside. It turns out the Judd blindside was the plan all week in case there was a double eviction. We weren't aware of that because due to other work committments, we couldn't follow the live feeds as closely as we normally do.
Now, the editing would have you thinking this Judd eviction happened in the span of the few minutes that the show cut to eviction, but Helen and Amanda had started orchestrating this days ago on the live feeds.
Watching Judd beg for his life during the commercial break is pretty sad. No wonder everybody was crying. This really feels like the first time we've seen so much footage from the double-eviction commercials.
Helen bucks up Aaryn, while Andy and McCrae cry in the cockpit room like Judd is dead. And McCrae's going to feel even worse when he finds out Judd wasn't the MVP nominating Amanda every week.
And now the beginnings of the "3 a.m." alliance form -- Amanda, Aaryn, Andy and McCrae. Aaryn agrees to it, as she should, but she trusts Helen more, as she should. Aaryn has to know she's low person on the totem pole in the 3 a.m. alliance.
The Head of Household Competition
There's a '50s diner in the backyard and the competition is tourney-style, with two people trying to get the "cherry" on top of the sundae using the contraption they gave them earlier in the week to practice on.
After beating GinaMarie and then Jessie, it's Andy in the finals versus McCrae and Andy pulls it out for his first win of any kind in an individual comp. Good for him, his DIary Room after he wins was super cute. However, the way he's totally in Amanda's pocket means that Jessie should be worried. Also, the Have Nots are Elissa, Helen, GinaMarie and Aaryn (by volunteer). Aaryn says she's being a "Good Witch," which ... yeah, now, to the other hamsters, she totally is.
There is then an awesome montage of everyone talking about how much they love Andy and how safe they are with him as HOH. That was some clever editing, "Big Brother" guys. Kudos.
What we do not give "kudos" to is Amanda's meltdown against McCrae about him not letting her win the HOH round where they were against each other. Yeah, she's crazy. RUN, MCCRAE, RUN!
As Jessie says, "Stop throwing a pity party for yourself and move on," Amanda. Seriously. You need to reel it in, girl.
The Nominations When talks turn to noms, Helen is talking to Andy about taking out Amanda/McCrae but little does she know that Andy is way more loyal to McCranda than he is to her. Frankly, Helen should be rounding up Elissa, Jessie and Aaryn into a Final Four deal. She's smart, but she doesn't quite have a handle on just how much power Amanda wields in the house.
For Andy's part, he's wondering if he has to show his hand this early or float by a little longer. What's he going to do? Spoiler alert -- he's going to hedge his bets a little longer.
In the end, Andy plays it safe and nominates Jessie and Spencer. As a viewer, that's super boring and we're very disappointed. But as far as Andy's game goes, that was pretty smart at this point. Why make waves if you don't have to? Make the next HOH do it. Plus, he is VERY unlikely to be nominated next week because everybody loves him and no one sees him as a threat.
Jessie is pretty much dead girl walking this week, unless she can win Power of Veto.
What do you think, hamster fans? Did Andy do the right thing?
