Big Brother 15 – Counting The Votes In Week 3

Aaryn counting her fans

Thursday night marks the third eviction of the BB15 season and with three nominees on the block there are more choices than any season before. But once again this week the attention is likely to focus on just two of the nominees with the third unlikely to get any eviction votes.

While last week saw some incredible 11th hour flipping in the Big Brother house, I’m not so sure that’ll happen again this time around. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the vote counts for who is most likely to be evicted on Thursday night.

The current row of Big Brother 15 nominees includes Spencer, Aaryn, and the renom Jeremy. The bulk of the house has been set of getting Jeremy out all week and they appear close to pulling it off. He won’t be sent out unanimously though as Spencer is the obvious target for the Mean Girls alliance.

There will be ten votes this week plus the chance for a tie-breaker from Helen as the current HoH. Here’s how the votes should break down:

  • Voting to evict Jeremy: Amanda, Andy, Candice, Elissa, Howard, Jessie, Judd, & McCrae
  • Voting to evict Spencer: GinaMarie & Kaitlin

Things are clearly stacked against Jeremy, but to his credit he hasn’t given up. Jeremy has been on his best behavior and offering up deals left and right. He spent over an hour talking with Helen last night in the HoH room and appeared to getting her to at least consider the idea of keeping him. Unfortunately for him Elissa and Andy quickly shut down that discussion. Andy doesn’t trust him and Elissa summed up her emotions by reminding him he rubbed her hat down his ass crack.

Should anything flip I’d expect it to be Aaryn who goes home rather than Spencer. One way or the other the Mean Girls are either going to lose a member or a supporter.

Do you think Jeremy is the right choice to evict? I know many of us would rather seen Aaryn done and gone from this season, but as a BB15 HG it’s understandable that they have more to worry about coming from Jeremy than her.

    • Only when there is an even number of voters or a multiple of 3. Last week there were 11 voters, so no chance for a tie breaker. Next week there will be 9 voters so there “could” be a three way tie.

      • Yes. Since there are 3 nominees there is always the possibility of a tie breaker. If there is an odd number of people in the house then if an odd # of people vote for 1 nominee and the vote is split with the other two you have a tie breaker situation. The fact that there has not been any votes so far this year where each nominee has received a vote is irrelevant. It could happen.

  1. I wonder if, given that so many viewers claim to be so horrified by the behavior of Gina Marie and Aaryn, the MVP may be given to someone other than Elyssa since she did nothing try and get the top racists out of the house.

    • Spencer is pretty bad to imo in what he says, Gina marie’s actions haven’t really been shown and she has sympathy for losing nick. That and Aaryn/Kaitlyn were already on block

      • If it’s an act then she obviously has no future in Hollywood. Unless they decide to remake Psycho. Then she could use experience as her guide.

      • I don’t know what it is. Nick did not appear to care much about anyone! How she caught feelings in two weeks is one of the great mysteries of the world. In truth I doubt if Nick would give GM a second look had they crossed paths in NYC.

    • That’s not really fair since the first nomination was before the racism started really. Plus both of her first two nominations were really more about saving herself. The third was Spencer when everyone else wanted Howard.

      You can’t blame Elissa for not voting out the racists considering this is the first week she will actually get a vote.

    • there is no vote, production just gives the MVP to Elissa every week since she’s agreed to put up whoever they ask her too, duh… haven’t you seen the pattern in previous seasons on production interference in the game… wake up america, its a scripted show.

    • she is playing a good game. Although what the mean girls are doing its still a game for 500000. and Jerm is a threat, so get him out as soon as you can. The others will fall out soon but always get the better competitor out when you can. No one is realizing that Elyssa is playing a hell of a game.

  2. As long as either Jeremy or Aaryn goes this week I’m fine with it. I just hope they don’t give Aaryn the Dr. Will position in the house. There is still enough time for some twists. Unless she wins some comps she should go.

  3. Now that the world knows Aaryn and GinaMarie were fired from their jobs I think they should put Unemployed under their names.

  4. I can not wait till Aaryn gets voted out..I want to see Julie’s speech and more importantly what Barbie will see and say once out of the house..Has she got a rude awakening. And Gm and Kaitlin are simply trash…Pathetic humans..

    • I have to say I doubt if Aaryn will care much about how we view her. She appears to be set in her ways.
      However, I think GinaMarie will be suprised and hurt that she decided to associate herself with that side of the house. She may find a cold reception once she gets back to the Tri-state area.

      • She belongs with that side of the house. Her racist comments were as bad as theirs. They are well matched. Yes, GM is more sensitive than the others…but only to her own feelings, not to the feelings of Candice or Howard or Helen or… Her comment on Medicare being “N***er insurance” was uniquely HER comment and one of the worst uttered. Good riddance to bad rubbish whenever she goes!

      • Don’t get me wrong, I understand that GM is an awful bigot. However, I think she will be suprised when people see her and call her a bigot. Aaryn is from TX where being a bigot is the norm.

  5. Jeremy needs to be the nxt house guest to get the boot. He has provided the “muscle” for the mean girls and they are likely to be a bit more realistic about the game when he is gone.

    • You are giving the means girls too much credit, I don’t think they will change what-so-ever. They will still sit around and sulk about losing, and they will be awful as usual.

  6. CBS decided to air Aaryn’s actions and even Julie talked about it on her show. Just based on those airings Aaryn should be the one to go. I know they are going strategic with Jeremy, but does this mean all the hateful remarks doesn’t bother these people any longer? I know Elissa is mad about the hat, but what about all the other vile things that have been said to the house guests? Even if Aaryn has calmed down this week so has Jeremy. Yet Spencer continues with his. I guess bottom line is the money means more to them then what was said against them. I heard Helen say America will be so happy and feel vindicated when Jeremy is gone, but I disagree. The fact that they are letting Aaryn stay in for even another week is not sending the right message imo. I am not saying Jeremy is not guilty, but so are a lot of other people. All 3 that are on the block are guilty, but to go along with what CBS decided to air it should be Aaryn imo.

    • Howard’s the one that needs to go for throwing the comp.Hopefully that’ll happen next week.

      • People throw comps all the time, it’s no big deal. He is trying to look non-threatening even though physically he looks to be in good shape. Plus he couldn’t even throw the have-not competition right, his team still won……

  7. If they do not vote to evict Jeremy, then they all dserve to lose. I know Helen is thinking if she keeps him for the final two she will win against him, but only if the jury house if filled with her alliance and not his or Amanda’s. If she does not support the eviction of Jeremy the house will know something is up and they will target her next. Amanda already doubts her.

  8. Jeremy has said racist comments. A fly landed on Howard and he said “don’t worry he’s African he’s used to it” and while talking to Kaitlin he said “black people can’t swim” (referring to Howard in the first have/have-not challenge) and she was like “don’t say that” which btw leads us to believe Kaitlin isn’t really a mean girl just going along with Aaryn and GM. I’ll be glad when he’s gone. He’s just as bad as Aaryn tbh.

    • I didn’t take it to mean that Kaitlin isn’t one of the mean girls…I took it to mean she didn’t want Jeremy showing his a** on the live feeds anymore than he has already.

  9. Jeremy doesn’t the know the game like Aaryn does. They have to remember things that happened in the house .. I dont see Jeremy remembering what happen on day 16 ..If they really want to get Howard out I think Jeremy is the only guy that could beat him

    • GOOD! Then I’m glad Jeremy is going. Although I don’t agree with your premise. Howard doesn’t seem to have that many friends in the house. And he hasn’t won anything yet.

  10. Ever since Jeremy bullied Alyssa in the HOH room week 1, he’s been 1st on my list to kick out.

  11. It’s over. Just hand Helen the money right now. She is the ultimate politician and the remaining people in the house will never see it. They are mostly too young and naive about life. It is almost an unfair advantage she has – and she knows it. And, please CBS, stuff the ballot box against Elyssa – enough already, we get it.

    • What do you mean it’s over? There’s already a plot brewing within her alliance to put her on the block. So if Amanda gets everything in order, Helen could be popping a squat AGAIN, soon….so I don’t understand the basis of your prediction.

      • Amanda may try, but Helen is too seasoned in dealing and lying to people. I may be wrong, but I’d be very surprised if Amanda can pull it off.

    • Helen will fall due to her hubris. She thinks she’s a sly manipulator, but she will get blindsided.
      Someone who still uses a passive/aggressive approach is not a real leader. She’ll be abandoned as soon as enough realize she’s using them.

  12. LOL guys stop voting that Aaryn goes home, she’s really not even in the equation. I think it’s a double eviction tomorrow btw folks, just a feeling :P

  13. Did anyone see the article in the New York Times where she was referred to as a nauseating racist? This was an exceptionally strong piece for The Times about a game show. This was a shocker.

  14. NYT BB ARTICLE:

    Thirteen years ago, on the first season of the CBS
    reality competition “Big Brother,” one houseguest was William Collins, also
    known as Will Mega, an intensely political black man who proved polarizing in
    the house for his sometimes confrontational talk about race. It was a novelty,
    this sort of conversation, in network prime time, and in the eyes of Americans,
    perhaps not a welcome one: the audience voted Mr. Collins off the show first.

    In the years since, “Big Brother” casts have displayed
    token diversity, but rarely has race been a subject of conversation, partly
    because of the producers’ apparent belief that it will arise only when members
    of a minority group are present and vocal, a scenario they’ve largely avoided.

    This season, though, race
    has become the dominant narrative thanks to a handful of white cast members
    who’ve turned the show, which runs three nights a week, into a rare opportunity
    to watch white privilege and unconscious racism in the field. It may be
    occurring in a sealed-off space, but it’s feasting on the oxygen of national
    network television.

    Sunday’s episode was the most disturbing of the season
    so far. Aaryn Gries, a young white woman, flipped the mattress of Candice
    Stewart, one of the show’s black cast members, then taunted Ms. Stewart with an
    exaggerated, stereotypical voice: “What you gon’ do, girl?” and “Where’s yo
    class, girl?” She was soon backed up by another white cast member, GinaMarie
    Zimmerman, who screamed at Ms. Stewart, “You want the black to come out?”

    This is execrable stuff by any measurement. The
    bullying is childish, but that’s standard on “Big Brother.” It’s the unchecked
    race privilege — the belief in the normative nature of whiteness, leading to
    blithe intolerance like that expressed by Ms. Gries — that is nauseating.

    Later on Sunday, Ms. Stewart cried in the arms of
    Howard Overby, the other black cast member, and detailed other aggressions that
    had been directed her way, including being called “Shaniqua.”

    Race is also encoded into conversations in more
    subtle, slippery ways. When a player is described as “strong” by other
    houseguests, almost invariably that player is one of the white, conventionally
    popular cast members. On Sunday’s episode, Ms. Gries complained that the
    housemates had teamed up against her. “They’ve come to the conclusion that they
    want to pick off all the strong players, just keep picking off the strongest
    players until the weakest person wins,” she griped, as if picking off players,
    strong or otherwise, weren’t part of savvy game play.

    It’s not a surprise that the alliance that has
    targeted Ms. Gries and her comrades includes most of the minority group members
    — Helen Kim, who is Asian-American, and Andy Herren, who is gay. (Mr. Overby, a
    deeply religious youth counselor, has proved a more complicated player, and
    Jeremy McGuire, who is part Cherokee, is aligned with Ms. Gries.)

    The operative conceit of “Big Brother” is the hermetic
    seal, both of the house itself, which is cut off from the outside world in all
    meaningful ways, and of the show, which turns nonactors into characters, and
    theoretically affords them an opportunity to present a self that is different
    from the one they display in their normal lives. Living in the house must feel
    like a safe space for those who are prejudiced. Possibly they forget that they
    are under constant surveillance, and come to believe that their worst behaviors
    might stay locked up inside.

    But shows like this aggressively seek story lines
    rooted in conflict. After revelations about the irresponsible comments made by
    Ms. Gries and others, the producers were criticized for not including them in
    the show. (The offensive behavior was first noticed and detailed by fans who
    obsessively monitor and document — on blogs and Twitter — the live Internet
    feeds of the house, which are available for a fee.)

    On a couple of recent episodes the comments were
    highlighted in the context of demonstrating how they affected Ms. Gries’s game
    play. But by Sunday’s episode her intolerance had become her narrative. Amanda
    Zuckerman, another houseguest, told her that she was “racist on this show, O.K.,
    and when you get out of this house, you’re gonna have a lot of people” — here,
    she added a profanity — “hating you.” (Ms. Gries has already lost a modeling
    contract because of her actions, although she has not been informed.)

    On Sunday, for the first time, the show opened with a
    disclaimer noting that “the houseguests may reveal prejudices and other beliefs
    that CBS does not condone.”

    Suddenly “Big Brother” is in the business of
    broadcasting regular peeks into the actual experience of racism. While it might
    not be brave, it is revelatory.

    Reality television has occasionally floated into this
    territory before — think of the fight between
    Kevin Powell and Julie Gentry in the first season of MTV’s “Real World” about
    race in America, or the callous prejudice of Colton Cumbie on “Survivor: One
    World.”

    But the tensions in the “Big Brother” house are
    continuing, and seemingly increasing. This conflagration is unfolding at a tense
    moment in American race relations, coming after the not-guilty verdict in the
    killing of Trayvon Martin. On Monday Anderson Cooper interviewed a juror in the
    trial, and it was hard not to hear similarities between the comments of that
    woman, whose opinions appeared to be rooted in a lack of diverse cultural
    exposure, and the galling opinions expressed by Ms. Gries and other “Big
    Brother” contestants.

    Racism flourishes in the shadows, where accountability
    is nil, but “Big Brother” is becoming a laboratory experiment in what happens
    when it is instead blatant and overt. Ms. Gries is eligible for elimination by
    her housemates this week — nominated by Ms. Kim — but she may survive. Certainly
    it will be a huge problem for CBS and “Big Brother” producers should Ms. Gries
    continue on the show, or even go on to win.

    That seems unlikely, though. On Sunday night she
    listed the people in the house she felt she could trust, then concluded, “We are
    the minority.” She didn’t look happy about it.

    • Thank you for sharing. This article is very much how I feel why I think Aayrn should be the first to go. There is no way Jeremy can win all the time and he doesn’t have the numbers. Are all these players afraid they can’t possibly beat him? He didn’t win the last HOH comp. and was out first. He could go next. I think it will be a big problem for CBS if she doesn’t go this week. They chose to air her and should make sure she leaves. I know people who only watch the 3 shows and don’t belong to a site such as this. They all think that Aaryn will be the one leaving this week.

      • These HGs are beyond belief. The worst of the worst. CBS is going to take a terrible beating for casting these bums. The thought of Aaryn the Aryan in the house for another week is revolting.

  15. The Cherokee chief MUST go. I am so sick of the cherokee remarks he keeps making. If he was a real Cherokee….his works and actions would be more respectful. He continues to dishonor his ancestors. Howard is more of a cherokee than Jeremy. Shame Jeremy.
