The Big Brother 15
live feeds are truly maddening to watch. There have been so many lies,
fake alliances and targets that I have very little clue what's real and
what's not. While the present always seems to be in focus, the future is
constantly changing, and on Monday, everyone decided to find a new
person to scapegoat.SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 15 spoilers.
Somehow, Judd seems to be the newest person everyone is starting to turn against. Before I continue, I should note that I have no idea whether or not any of these things are real and it could all change. I've been quite certain about some things in the past, and I still believe wholeheartedly that Howard is absolutely going to be evicted on Thursday, but everything else is a mystery. This article is just about conversations that took place on Monday, so take them all with a huge grain of salt.
The unlikely trio of Aaryn, Helen and Amanda met up to discuss the state of the game, and while Howard is still the primary target, with Spencer and Candice as the next in line for the firing squad, they're already making plans for jury. Basically, they're all gearing up for war.
Talk turned to Judd, and suddenly everyone is very suspicious of his actions and behavior. The three women all concurred that he is playing a great game and is manipulating Jessie. They also believe he made up lies about Kaitlin to get rid of her, most notably the Grasshoppers alliance with Kaitlin, GinaMarie, Howard and Spencer. We, of course, know that wasn't a lie, but Judd DID make up a lie about Kaitlin saying she was coming after Helen.
Aaryn, Amanda and Helen also told each other that they believe Judd has been the MVP for the past two weeks, secretly making it look like Howard. Helen even compared Judd to Dan Gheesling, her go-to claim to throw someone under the bus (see: Nick).
I have no idea if any of these women believe this, but Helen did tell Aaryn and Amanda that, once jury begins, she would nominate Judd and Jessie because he's a dangerous player who could easily win the game. In the past she's also mentioned going after Amanda and McCrae, so I don't know what she'd really do.
The three women made a vow not to tell anyone else about this conversation, so naturally Amanda immediately ran to tell Andy and McCrae all about it and their suspicions about Judd. There is no such thing as a secret in the house, which should make it quite clear that no one is the MVP.
Later on Monday, Amanda, McCrae, Andy and Aaryn met up in the HoH room to discuss Judd's shadiness and their worries about him. Then something truly absurd happened.
Amanda told Aaryn that the three of them had a Final 4 deal with Judd (aka the Goof Troop), but now that Judd is being weird and not being totally honest about things he's doing, she no longer trusts him. She then proposed a NEW Final 4 alliance with Amanda, McCrae, Andy and Aaryn. Amanda swore to God this is for real and Andy chimed in that he now trusts Aaryn 100 percent because of what she did this week.
I'm 100 percent confused. Is this real? Is the Goof Troop dead, with Aaryn taking Judd's place the same way she already seemed to take Elissa's place in the Knockouts? Is Amanda's paranoia about being nominated causing her to do crazy things?
I have no idea what to believe, but the fact that Amanda told Aaryn about the Final 4 deal she had with McCrae, Andy and Juddi is just a baffling move. I don't see the benefit in outing a real thing unless she's actually turning against it.
One thing is certain: the increased paranoia due to the MVP twist is causing everyone to make highly questionable decisions. I'm not sure if anyone in this house is actually playing a good game or not.
I'm not sure if any of this paranoia will create chaos over the next two weeks since people like Spencer, Candice and Elissa are still obvious mutual targets before jury, but even if that is the case, the post-jury game will be intense.
