Evil prevails and Aaryn is Head of Household on Big Brother this week.
Naturally, that means Elissa and Helen are up for elimination, though Helen is just collateral damage for Aaryn, who is totally targeting Elissa for getting her showmance David booted from the house. After all, hell hath no fury like a showmance scorned.
Of course, Elissa says she “expected it” and tells Helen they should “just act cool.”
While those two are acting cool, Candice seems to be the only one actually thinking about the game. “I already have this theory that there’s an all-boy alliance in the house,” she says, noting she believes these guys got Aaryn to do her dirty work.
Yes, Candice, you are right. The guys have formed what they call the Moving Company. And since Aaryn is already tainted by her racist and homophobic comments lobbed at fellow houseguests, doesn’t it make sense that she should be the tool to get her hands even dirtier?
Anyway, the guys are thrilled with their secret power, and it’s gone to their heads—where there’s plenty of room since a few of these dudes don’t have bulky brains wasting space up there…
But while the guys gloat, they seem to have forgotten about this year’s tiny twist in the game—the MVP award, which allows whichever houseguest America elects to have the power to put up a third nominee in secret. In a non-shocking surprise, Elissa was chosen for the second week in a row. “So exciting…” she unenthusiastically says. Even she can’t muster the strength to pretend not to know it was coming her way.
When Jeremy is revealed as the third nomination, he is ready to rumble. “Let’s do this!” he yells.
And the players chosen to compete in the Veto Competition—Amanda and Nick—only help his chances. Of course, Nick is “stoked” to give his “homeboy” Jeremy his full support in the game. Meanwhile, Nick’s “homeboy” says he is “a caged animal” or a “manimal.”
The “manimal” and other Veto Competition players watch a video starring Britney Haynes from Big Brother 12 and 14. She’s pregnant! And this Veto will require contestants to create giant mobiles for her nursery by balancing stuffed animals while dressed in onesies.
Long story short, Jeremy the “Manimal” is good at balancing his animals and he wins the competition. Of course, he has to rip off his onesie in celebration and roar, “Guess who’s bringing it home to mommy?”
Gross. Instead of mommy, Jeremy brings it home to Kaitlin, who joins him for some celebrations in bed. He reassures her that he will protect her and she shouldn’t worry about going up on the block. He then makes out with her, grabs her butt and somehow holds himself back from clubbing her over the head and dragging her off to his man cave.
Jeremy, of course, uses the Power of Veto on himself and Elissa makes the smart decision to put up Nick, the self-proclaimed CEO of the Moving Company, despite her earlier hesitation for reasons that make no game sense.
Helen is certain the “mom squad” will prevail while Nick is sure Elissa needs to pack her bags.
