Big Brother Chatter

A House, Emptied

Posted on by Finley in BB15 1 Comment

In the end, there was little real doubt.

After a season where people’s mouths kept getting them in trouble, it was Andy’s ability to clearly get across his game moves and strategies that sealed the deal and earned him the grand prize of $500,000. After playing one of the best social games seen in Big Brother, Andy managed to win when needed once more to earn the final HoH and evict his partner in the game, Spencer. With a Day One promise to GinaMarie that she never denied, Andy also managed to prove a loyalty that showed doubters that he could be faithful to a promise.

The Endgame Gambit

Posted on by Finley in BB15 Leave a comment

Making it to Endgame in Big Brother is a remarkable feat, no matter how you get there. The Final Three players are usually entirely in control of the final pairing, and save for some remarkably questionable choices the folks that make it to Endgame can make some sort of case for being there.

Even in Big Brother 15, the three people that remain in the game can make an argument for why they are there. In this article, we’ll look at the argument that each player can make towards why they should be in the Final Two. While ultimately it comes down to the final HoH competition, if there were a case to be made for why someone should make either 2nd or 1st place it would be listed here.

The Likeability Factor

Posted on by Finley in BB15 Leave a comment

Trust is a major factor in Big Brother. Previous winners have been across the spectrum when it came to trustworthiness, but the people who could not be trusted were often removed from the game before the final run of competitions. More amusing is when someone who should not be trusted becomes the more trusted person over anyone else. Normally, this happens because of factors such as social gameplay – a fact that bore out once more this week. Andy’s continued existence in the game over Elissa is a reminder that no matter who you are related to or whom you are friends with outside, in the end you have to play all aspects of the game if you want a chance to win Big Brother.

Ultimately, Elissa and Amanda’s departures this week came down to one major factor – a severe lack of likeability.

Going There

Over 13 years and 15 seasons, many fans have questioned the real usefulness of having Julie Chen as the continued host of Big Brother. While Chen is a well-known fan of the game and the show itself, she hasn’t always been seen as the best host of the show. Many questioned whether if, when the situation called upon it, Chen could be relied upon to ask the truly tough questions to an evicted Houseguest.

Thursday’s show, featuring Aaryn’s eviction, undoubtedly answered those questions in spades.

Amanda Wins Veto, Saves McCrae – Andy Up

Posted on by JaydeW in BB15 Leave a comment

It was Baby Zing-Bot’s first Birthday in the Big Brother House, and to celebrate, a special Power of Veto was played. With the house finally turning on Amanda thanks to HOH Elissa’s budding plan to backdoor her, it was only appropriate that her new target would pull off her first competition win in the game.  Yep, Amanda finally won something, and so, she saved not only herself, but used the power to save her main pizza boy, McCrae, ensuring they’d have at least another week to sneak around, suck face and do the nasty.

With Aaryn as the original target for Elissa’s HOH, now she had the choice of who to put up beside her. GinaMarie, who she promised wouldn’t go up, Spencer, the go-to nomination-seat filler, Andy, he of questionable loyalty, or the returnee Judd.

In the end it was Andy’s flip flopping that landed him on the block next to Aaryn, and with two of the three “A’s” of the 3AM alliance on the block, Amanda and McCrae are trying to save their power player Aaryn, who has shown herself to be a beast in competitions. Andy, however useful as a middle man between the now in Jury Helen’s alliance, hasn’t shown as much competency in competitions and is therefore more of a throwaway member of that alliance.

It all really comes down to the numbers, with three votes needed to evict this week, it’s in the hands of Spencer, Judd and GinaMarie as to who goes home this week. Aaryn is looking like the most likely to be evicted come Thursday, however things can always change in the last hours before a vote – so who really knows?
