Later today the next Power of Veto Ceremony will be held on the Big Brother 15 Live Feeds. While the outcome was a foregone conclusion for most of us, one HG thought this is the time to finally make a move against a former ally. That’s right, Helen’s “not this week, maybe next week” finally became “this week.” She rallied for support, but as the night dragged on things started to look like we’re facing another flop on the flip.
It all started at 2:26PM BBT 8/18 when Helen finds Aaryn alone in the HoH room. She starts working Aaryn on Amanda playing the house and controlling both sides. This talk goes on for a long, long time but appears to be gaining traction with Aaryn. Later Andy joins the discussion and promises “100%” to Helen that he has her vote to stay. She says she believes McCranda are working against her.
Whether or not Aaryn was really thinking about it, she goes and tells McCranda (4:15 PM BBT) that Helen is campaigning hard against them. Aaryn quickly goes back inside and leaves McCranda to stress the situation.
Later Helen goes to talk with Amanda, who is well aware of Helen’s attempts to flip the house on her. Flashback to 7:32PM BBT. Helen says she thinks the house is trying to pit them against one another. Amanda says she thinks Helen is trying to pit the house against her (Amanda). Amanda revives her standard “I know you’re trying to get me evicted” speech that she’s used week after week. Amanda tells Helen that they weren’t going after her until they found out she was coming back at them. That’s of course a lie, but Helen might not know that for certain.
Jump to 11:45 PM BBT last night and you’ll find Aaryn upset at Amanda. She’s talking with GinaMarie and Andy and is coming back around to the idea of going after Amanda. When Andy goes to the bathroom Aaryn whispers to GM that what set her off was that McCranda wants GM gone so Aaryn would lose her ally.
Aaryn and Helen get back together to share notes. Flashback to 12:22AM BBT to listen in. Aaryn brings up again her worry about being split up from GM. Helen immediately starts using that to support her case against Amanda. Aaryn drops a bomb on Helen, “You think you have Andy, but you don’t.” Helen says that’s “shocking.” Helen is definitely disappointed.
Aaryn starts asking Helen if Elissa would vote out Amanda. Aaryn is worried that if she puts up Amanda they won’t have the votes if they can’t get Andy or Spencer. Helen promises Aaryn she’ll have her vote at the F2 if she does this and Helen goes later.
Just when you think Aaryn is on board she goes back to McCranda and once again tells them everything. Flashback to 1:25AM BBT to listen in as Aaryn spills the beans to Amanda. Aaryn says she thinks Andy was in support of the plan to BD Amanda. Amanda immediately wants Andy upstairs to explain himself. Andy says we was just appeasing Helen and wasn’t serious.
The plan to flip the house against Amanda officially flops at 3:10 AM BBT when Aaryn promises Amanda that she wasn’t even considering going against Amanda. Or has it? Monday is a new day and the Veto Ceremony is still hours away so anything could happen. It’s still a long shot, but let’s keep watching and see what happens next.
What do you think Aaryn should do at today’s Veto meeting?
