July 8, 2013

A Recap of Day 18 in the Big Brother 15 House

10:00-11:00 AM: Helen let Amanda know that Spencer was suggesting that she should be the replacement nominee. Amanda said that Spencer is also turning on Helen, mentioning that she has been having secret conversations with Aaryn. Amanda went to Spencer to let him know that everybody will come after him if he turns on the group.

Howard told Jeremy that Spencer had come up with the idea of making a nine person alliance in order to get Amanda to back off. The alliance would be the five Moving Company members plus Amanda, Kaitlin, Aaryn and GinaMarie. Howard said that Amanda is only two or three weeks away from figuring the Moving Company out. Jeremy said that the alliance is too risky since it could expose the Moving Company. Jeremy told Howard that Amanda will be gone within two weeks. It was also discussed that McCrae may need to be cut if he won't let go of Amanda. It was suggested that Aaryn could replace him in the Moving Company.

11:00-12:00 PM: At the veto ceremony, Jeremy used the Power of Veto on himself. The MVP, Elissa, nominated Nick in his place. Amanda went to work on Candice, letting her know the importance of keeping Elissa around. Candice was in agreement with her. Elsewhere, Spencer was warning Jeremy that McCrae has no control over Amanda. Spencer then went to McCrae and told him that one option may be to convince Amanda that the other side wants the two of them, he and Howard to join them. McCrae said that it will be tough to get her to switch sides, because she will get suspicious if he pushes too hard. Spencer then informed McCrae that Helen trusts Amanda the least out of everyone in their alliance and wants to get her out in order to make McCrae more focused. McCrae later went to Howard and swore that he is loyal to the Moving Company. He did point out that he feels that Amanda is still of use to them.

7:00-8:00 PM: Kaitlin told Jeremy that Aaryn is still planting things in her head about him. Jeremy said to let her and see who takes her further. Meanwhile, Aaryn was telling GinaMarie that she is sick of Jeremy and Kaitlin. Aaryn said that Kaitlin went to Jeremy and told him everything that she had said. The girls were concerned that Kaitlin could mess everything up and cause Nick to go home. Aaryn told GinaMarie that if she ever gets MVP, Kaitlin is going home.

8:00-9:00 PM: Jeremy told Spencer and Howard that they may need to go to McCrae and tell him that Amanda has to go. The guys agreed that it's not that they don't trust McCrae but it's that Amanda is too smart and is on to their guys alliance. Spencer said that they will have to put Amanda up if they ever get MVP. Jeremy also pointed out that Aaryn may have to go, seeing as she is falling for Amanda's traps and is questioning him.

Amanda went to Elissa to ask if she would be upset if she went home. Elissa said yes and that she doesn't want to go home. Amanda explained that Jeremy is bullying people into sending her home and that people are falling for it. Amanda said that she wants Elissa to stay but she is concerned about the others.

9:00-10:00 PM: Jeremy told McCrae that he is concerned that the Moving Company is going to be exposed because Amanda is already catching on. McCrae said that Amanda is on board with Jeremy and Aaryn but is concerned about Nick. Jeremy told McCrae that Amanda needs to be kept in check, as she is scaring Aaryn by bringing up a guy alliance. Howard then spoke up about Amanda being a threat to the Moving Company due to her intelligence. Jeremy explained that it is imperative that they break down the Elissa alliance, consisting of Elissa, Candice, Andy and Helen. Jeremy and McCrae agreed that the Moving company members need to start bad mouthing each other to the other houseguests, to throw people off.

10:00-11:00 PM: Nick approached Helen with a deal, saying that he would not campaign against her if she would not campaign against him. Helen said that she is going to lay low since she did not want to campaign against Elissa. She said that she would be happy not to campaign against Nick either.

Amanda again went to work on trying to convince McCrae that Elissa needs to stay. McCrae told her that Spencer will not vote with them. Amanda was frustrated, saying that they are losing one of their important people and keeping someone that is one of the most shady in the house. Amanda didn't understand why McCrae is trusting Jeremy. McCrae explained that it's not about trusting him but rather about getting Jeremy to trust them. Andy and Amanda later discussed that they want to keep Elissa but are concerned about Howard and Spencer.

11:00-12:00 AM: Judd told Andy that his biggest fear is that they vote out Elissa and then Jeremy laughs at them and is like "I got you!". Andy agreed, adding that they have such a foolproof plan right now. Andy said that the way that people talk to Elissa makes him want to cry. Judd said that he would almost be ashes to vote her out since he would look like a coward. Andy and Judd discussed that they don't actually believe that Candice is the next target for the other side out the house. Andy told Judd that they will get the brunt of things if they vote to keep Elissa, seeing as they have been good friends with both sides of the house.
