Kaitlin is evicted, Aaryn wins HoH and gives in to Amanda

July 25, 2013

A Recap of Day 35 in the Big Brother 15 House

11:00-12:00 PM: Candice informed Howard that Helen and Elissa made a deal with Aaryn, in which Aaryn will let them pick the nominees if she wins HoH. Candice asked Howard not to tell Spencer about the deal. Howard said that he would not and that he has not talked game with Spencer in two days.

1:00-2:00 PM: Spencer told Howard that they saw how quickly the entire house turned against Kaitlin for no good reason. Spencer said that it's because of Amanda. Spencer said that Judd must be the rat, as people knew stuff about The Grasshoppers that only he would know. Spencer's plan is to kiss ass until jury, at which point he said that he will win HoH and throw a bomb. Spencer explained that they need to stay loyal to Amanda until jury. At that point, he said that he will be willing to cut Amanda's head off. Spencer believes that everyone is too scared to take Amanda out at this point, so it's dangerous to even suggest it. Spencer advised Howard to act as though they are with Amanda and McCrae, in order to make it hard for those two to make the move that they want to make by coming after he and Howard.

2:00-3:00 PM: Howard asked Andy if everyone is still on the same page with voting out Kaitlin. Andy said yes and that it will be a 9-0 vote. Howard then went to McCrae to inform him that he is good with the four person alliance between the two of them, Spencer and Amanda. Howard said that it could work well since everyone thinks that they hate each other.

3:00-4:00 PM: Helen told Kaitlin that people have been telling her that Jeremy asked her to go after both she and Howard. Kaitlin said that Jeremy never said that about Helen. Helen said that the plan was always to get rid of Aaryn, but then the whole Grasshoppers alliance came up. Helen said that she wants to protect Kaitlin as much as she can but she no longer knows what is going to happen. Kaitlin told Helen that Amanda knows that she (Kaitlin) would never nominate Helen, Elissa or Andy and knows that Aaryn would never nominate Amanda or McCrae, so that's why she is pushing for Aaryn to stay. Helen said that she assumes that everyone is voting Aaryn out.

5:00-6:00 PM: Roughly 20 minutes before the live show, Elissa asked Helen if they should see if everyone would vote Aaryn out. Helen said that they cannot do it today, cause the rest of the house would come after them. Helen told Elissa that she would nominate Amanda and Aaryn on the block. She said that she wonders what the deal is between Aaryn and Amanda. Helen was very mad that Candice found out about their deal with Aaryn. It made her think that Aaryn told Candice and that those two are working together.

6:00-7:00 PM: Kaitlin was evicted by a vote of 9-0-0. It was then announced that America will again be the BB MVP for the week ahead. Aaryn ended up winning her second HoH of the season.

7:00-8:00 PM: Elissa was immediately worried for her safety, given that Aaryn had won the HoH competition and that she cannot play for veto this week. Amanda assured her that she is safe and that she will not be going on the block. Amanda said that Aaryn will be nominating Howard and Spencer. Helen went to Aaryn and said that Elissa is ruining her game. Helen explained that Elissa had definitely told Candice about their deal with Aaryn. Aaryn said that she has been asked to nominated Elissa, but she will do whatever she and Helen agree on. Aaryn said that she would have the votes to send Elissa home. Helen said that she could not be a part of it and that it would have to be done without her. Aaryn mentioned that her preference is to get rid of Elissa. Helen said that she will think about it.

Amanda told Judd and McCrae that she has been working on Aaryn for three weeks and that Howard and Spencer will be nominated. Amanda said that this is the best possible scenario, seeing as they won't have to get the blood on their hands. Helen then joined the conversation and said that Elissa tried to flip the house in order to evict Aaryn, but she shot it down. Helen also said that Elissa told Candice about the deal with Aaryn. Amanda told Helen that Howard and Spencer are going up, so don't let Aaryn know that Elissa tried to tip the house. Helen said that she hates to say it but Elissa needs to go. Amanda told her that Howard and Spencer need to go first.

Amanda told Aaryn that Howard and Spencer need to be nominated no matter what. Aaryn was concerned that she will be the next to go, once Howard and Spencer are gone. Amanda said that that is not true. Amanda told Aaryn that Elissa can go up as a replacement but it would be pointless since she would not go home anyway. Amanda then told Aaryn that Howard is the one that keeps bringing up the "racist shit" and that Spencer will "lie right to your face". Amanda prefers that Howard leaves but is fine with either of the two going home. Aaryn was concerned that Elissa would take her out. Amanda said that even if she nominated her, it would be next to GinaMarie, Spencer or Howard and those people would all go before her. Amanda explained that Howard, Spencer and Candice would all nominate her next to Aaryn, ensuring that Aaryn would go home. Aaryn said that if she wanted Elissa to go home, she would but she is not going to do it cause she trusts Amanda.

8:00-9:00 PM: Candice was concerned that it would be her and Elissa nominated. Helen said that everyone wants Elissa out but that she will not let it happen. Helen told Candice that she will push for Spencer to go home over Howard if it comes down to it. Candice asked Helen to look into pulling Aaryn away from Amanda and McCrae in order to go after them this week. Helen then went to Elissa and let her know that she will not be nominated, saying that Amanda has already confirmed that. Helen said that Howard and Spencer will be the nominees.

9:00-10:00 PM: Spencer told Howard that he is worried that he may be going up, but he thinks that Elissa is the target and that Elissa and Helen may be nominated. McCrae went to work, trying to protect Spencer. He told Amanda that Howard and Candice should be nominated. Amanda said that both Howard and Spencer have to go up so that one of them will for sure go this week. Amanda said that Howard is the target since he is the one that connects Spencer and Candice.

Aaryn, Elissa, Judd, Amanda, McCrae and Andy had a discussion. Amanda said that Howard and Spencer will try to blame Elissa for trying to flip the house on Aaryn, but it was really those two that tried to do it. Aaryn told everyone that Howard and Spencer will be going up no matter what. Aaryn said that she picked the wrong people to play with and that she really wanted to win this HoH so that she could show her loyalty and start over. It was discussed that Howard will be the target for this week. Elissa later told Helen that she was glad that Aaryn won over Spencer. Helen said that Howard will probably nominate either one of them or GinaMarie as the MVP nominee.

10:00-11:00 PM: Helen told Candice that Amanda is trying to control things but she doesn't care what happens as long as the two of them and Elissa don't end up on the block. Helen said that Amanda tries to control everything and she doesn't know how they will get her out of the house. Candice said that maybe Elissa would nominate Amanda if she gets MVP. Helen wasn't sure about it but said that it was a possibility.

11:00-12:00 AM: GinaMarie asked Aaryn if she was nominating Candice. Aaryn said no and explained that she is nominating Howard and Spencer cause she made a deal with Helen in order to stay. Aaryn said that she gave up her nominations in order to keep herself safe. Aaryn told GinaMarie that they are now in the numbers and will be sticking around for a while. Aaryn said that everyone wants to go after Elissa once Howard, Spencer and Candice are gone.

12:00-1:00 AM: Candice told Howard that Aaryn will likely not nominate Helen or Elissa but she needs to make a power move and go after Amanda and McCrae. Howard said that he doesn't want to mention any names but he is going to tell Aaryn that she really has a chance to change things. Howard said that two of the "power four" (Helen, Elissa, Amanda, McCrae) need to be nominated. Candice told Howard that she thinks that he will be nominated with Spencer. Candice said that she is about to screw Spencer completely over if that happens. Candice feels as though nobody trusts Spencer and that Howard would stay over him.

2:00-3:00 AM: Howard went to Aaryn's HoH room to discuss nominations. Aaryn said that she made a deal with Helen and said that they would decide the nominations together. Aaryn said that she doesn't want to do anything that would harm Howard but her safety relies on doing what the numbers want. Howard said that Aaryn is smart enough to see who is running the house and that it's going to take someone to do something bold in order to change it. Howard explained that Aaryn is right back in the same position that she was if she listens to what the numbers want.
