Helen and Elissa are on the Big Brother block thanks to Aaryn and her alliance with Amanda, McCrae and Andy. “Elissa is the pawn, and Helen is the target,” says Aaryn.
Helen is certain she’s safe thanks to what we know is a fake final three deal with McCrae and Andy. Elissa feels sad because she doesn’t want to lose Helen, but she doesn’t want to go home either.
But anything can happen during the Veto Competition!
Before that, Andy admits Helen has been a wonderful friend and the situation is heartbreaking for him because he has “to lie to her to save the people” he’s aligned with.
The logic is baffling, because, as BB All-Star and OKMagazine.com blogger Rachel Reilly has pointed out, the only way he has a chance to win this game is by joining forces with friends. Instead, he’s propping up Amanda and McCrae for whatever reason. Good luck with that, Andy.
So Helen spins her wheels focusing on getting Spencer kicked out. Amanda and McCrae celebrate sitting pretty in the game by spending their days lying around and making out. Spencer focuses on preparing to fight for the Veto if he gets to play. And Andy starts to show more confidence playing the houseguests.
Now it’s time for the Veto Competition!
The players will be Elissa, Helen, Aaryn, GinaMarie, Spencer and Andy.
For this week’s POV, the players must kneel before OTEV. This year it’s a brokenhearted love beaver, who has been writing letters all summer to evicted houseguests.
Unfortunately, a flood has scattered the letters throughout the forest before he could mail them. Each round, the beaver will read a portion of a missing letter he wrote to an evicted houseguest.
When the players think they know who he’s addressing, they must slide down the dam and find the letter addressed to that particular former houseguest.
The last player back up the dam is automatically out of the competition. Whoever is left on the last stump and has the correct envelope at the end of the game wins the POV!
GinaMarie is out first, followed by Helen, Andy, Aaryn and Spencer.
That means Elissa has won the Power of Veto!
Helen thinks Spencer will go up and is SO excited. But Amanda reminds viewers that “Helen, you’re going home!”
Suddenly, the light goes off in Helen’s head and she realizes Andy didn’t really try to win the POV, which means he doesn’t want to fight for her to stay.
Meanwhile, Amanda tries to bully Elissa, who says she doesn’t like to be threatened into doing her bidding. Elissa then tries to warn Helen to be wary of Amanda and getting back-doored.
Helen talks to Aaryn and GinaMarie about joining forces with Elissa and her to stop McCrae and Amanda from pitting everyone against each other and running the house. “I’ve always really liked Helen, and I’ve wanted so badly for her and I to work together,” admits Aaryn.
Finally, something sensible comes out of Aaryn’s mouth!
“The game changing move for this show could be getting Amanda out of this house,” says Helen.
Broken record. How many times do we have to hear this from houseguests before somebody finally does it? Unfortunately, it seems like we’re stuck with McCranda until the end.
But Amanda suddenly makes a grave mistake by fighting with Aaryn about drinking all the wine earlier in the summer.
“Here we go again…Amanda’s fighting with Aaryn, who’s in our alliance,” says McCrae. “Plus, Aaryn’s HOH, which is a recipe for disaster.”
“I’m bathing in the blood of everyone Amanda has wanted out of this game,” says an angry Aaryn.
She then refers to Big Brother 15 as “The Amanda and McCrae Show.”
So will the Mean Girls finally (wisely) turn on each other? Let’s find out during the POV Ceremony!
Elissa uses the POV on herself.
Aaryn then chooses a replacement nominee. She selects…
Spencer. Waa waaaaa. Aaryn calls Amanda “scary” and she admits she’s afraid to piss her off. Great game play, Aaryn. It is pretty frightening to have to fight so hard for the right to hand all that prize money over to another player on a silver platter.
Will the game ever get any good? Maybe there’s a slim chance since tonight one of the last four evicted houseguests—Candice, Judd, Jessie and either Helen or Spencer—will battle it out to get back in the game!
