Much debate about who should be nominated beside Elissa

July 4, 2013

A Recap of Day 14 in the Big Brother 15 House

10:00-11:00 AM: The morning after David's blindside, houseguests continued to plead their cases to Aaryn that they did not turn on David. First up was Howard. He explained that he was just as shocked as they were that David went home last night. On a personal level, he said that he loved David. Additionally, he added that it's a business vote and why would you keep someone (Elissa) in the house that is making the game unfair? Aaryn understood and said that they will be going after the people that were responsible for taking David out.

Aaryn and Kaitlin discussed all of the stories they had been hearing, with Kaitlin saying that these people are so stupid. Aaryn said that they are smart cause Elissa keeps the target off of them, and they know that they (Aaryn/Kaitlin/Jeremy etc) are a powerhouse. Both girls agreed that Nick cannot be trusted. Neither of them feel that Nick voted for Elissa to leave. Kaitlin's concern is that they will nominate Elissa and everyone will do the same thing again, choosing not to evict her.

11:00-12:00 PM: Spencer caught up with Howard to let him know that Aaryn does not trust Nick or GinaMarie. He also said that Jeremy is making this week's nominations for the most part and he wants Elissa to leave. Spencer said that he is on board with the plan, cause that opens it up for one of them to get MVP.

12:00-1:00 PM: McCrae warned Amanda that she cannot even go up on the block, otherwise she will end up going home. He told her not to get paranoid, not to get worried, and just do as he says. He also advised her not to talk about Nick being the shady vote. Andy came down from the HoH room and reported back to Amanda and McCrae. He said that they want Elissa up and Kaitlin is worried about going up as the MVP nomination. Furthermore, Andy said that he is pushing so hard for Candice to go up. He noted that the HoH crew thinks that Nick is being sketchy, so he has also been planting that seed.

1:00-2:00 PM: Helen told Elissa to do no campaigning this week, cause they have the votes and just need to hope that they get MVP. Helen suggested that they nominate Kaitlin if they get the MVP. If Kaitlin were to win the veto, they would backdoor Jeremy. Helen said that GinaMarie reached out to them, and they need her, so they have to give her a week's trust. As for Candice, both agreed that they would like to work with her and protect her, but they can't trust her enough to tell her anything.

Spencer let Jeremy know that Amanda is trying to get Elissa to nominate Jeremy with the MVP nomination. Spencer said that it's going to be tough to get the votes to save Jeremy if he ends up on the block, but Jeremy didn't seem too worried. He said that he will just win the veto. Amanda continues to be someone that is on a lot of people's radars. Spencer said that Amanda needs to go and that he could easily get enough votes to take her out.

2:00-3:00 PM: Amanda made her way to the HoH room, trying to cut a deal with Aaryn. When questioned about having voted out David, Amanda said "I swear to God on my niece that I did not send David home." Amanda said that if her and McCrae are guaranteed safety this week, she can potentially manipulate Elissa into putting up who Aaryn wants with the MVP nominee. Jeremy and Kaitlin both mentioned that Elissa could put Nick, cause he is being super sketchy and is playing both sides of the house. Amanda said that she and McCrae would 100% vote however Aaryn and Jeremy wanted. Jeremy said that it's obvious that they want Elissa to leave this week.

4:00-5:00 PM: Jeremy and Aaryn discussed nominations. While the Elissa nomination is a given, there was debate as to who the second nominee should be. Jeremy said that Amanda could go up and then she fight against Elissa. Aaryn felt that nominating Candice would create the least drama in the house. Jeremy then suggested nominating Helen, with Amanda being the potential replacement nominee if Helen were to win the veto. Jeremy made it clear that Elissa needs to go this week. He said that they cannot be stupid like every other cast.

6:00-7:00 PM: Aaryn spoke with Helen and let her know that her name hadn't been coming out of anyone's mouths until Helen kept running back to Elissa. Aaryn explained that she was willing to work with Elissa, but that Elissa ruined that early on when she started saying mean things about her. While Helen understood the frustration with Elissa, she also tried to get Aaryn to open up to the possibility of working with she and Elissa. Helen said that you get further in this game with people that help you, not just the people that are your social friends. She added that she can help in making it advantageous to Aaryn to have Elissa around, if Elissa ends up staying. Either way, Helen made a point of telling Aaryn that they could work together to help further each other's games. She said that no one would expect it, making it even more advantageous. Aaryn did not rule out the possibility of doing just that.

After speaking with Aaryn, Helen told Elissa that they need to lay low this week in order to give themselves the best chance of staying in the house. She specifically said that Elissa can't be throwing any jabs at Aaryn. Helen explained that they can play up that they can be Aaryn's biggest asset, make sure that they survive the week, and then they can take her out.

8:00-9:00 PM: The houseguests had a 4th of July party. The feeds were down during this time, and it appears as though we missed plenty of drama. While Jessie and Judd were dancing, Elissa apparently gave them a look that Jessie did not take too kindly to. Jessie proceeded to tell Elissa that she knows what she is trying to do, in trying to make the house think that her and Judd are a showmance. Jessie was involved in more drama, as Amanda felt that she was trying to get in between her and McCrae. Jessie said something about wanting to work with McCrae once Amanda is out of the house.

9:00-10:00 PM: There was still discussion as to who should be nominated this week. Aaryn said that Jess is a fighter when she wants to be, so she could be an option. Jeremy said that Helen is the best bet and that way they still get out a strong player if Elissa wins the veto. Jeremy later met up with a couple of his Moving Company allies, Nick and McCrae, to tell them that Elissa will go this week if they all stick to the plan. He added that Helen needs to go the following week.

11:00-12:00 AM: Kaitlin continued to voice her concern about going home this week. She told GinaMarie that Candice and Jess are two people that all of the guys hate, making them better options to go on the block than Helen. Kaitlin told GinaMarie and Andy that she feels that it would be best to go after the people that voted David out, cause nobody will vote to evict Elissa anyway.

Jessie came up to the HoH room to explain what had happened during her meltdown. She said that the fact that her loyalty is questioned every single day is what is getting to her. She added that the game is not fun for her anymore. Jessie felt that Elissa had given her one of her "infamous looks", which caused her to snap. She took some time to speak to Elissa afterwards, something that Aaryn was not impressed with. Aaryn pointed out that Jessie was kissing Elissa's ass and it's sickening. When Jess mentioned that Elissa is not a bad person, Aaryn asked Jessie why they would even want to share their plans with her anymore after hearing that.

12:00-1:00 AM: Helen and Elissa discussed that they have to put their faith in the guys on their side of the house. She said that Andy is really playing things up with the other side, which is going to lead to them being very mad at him when he votes against them. Helen advised Elissa to watch what she says about Rachel, cause it rubs people the wrong way. Elissa explained that production wants her to talk about Rachel and she wouldn't be there if not for Rachel. Elissa said that this isn't about me, this is about putting Rachel's sister into the house.
