Big Brother 15 Episode 9 Recap: A Backdoor Plan Unfolds


Big Brother 15 might see a legitimate backdoor after Wednesday night’s episode after a plan from start-to-finish worked exactly as planned.

The episode picks up right after Helen nominated Aayrn and Kaitlin for eviction. Helen tells us that Aaryn is her target at the moment, but if given the chance, she might have a bigger fish to fry.

Helen meets with her allies to talk about the plan to backdoor Jeremy. So names start coming out about who the MVP should nominate because they don’t want that third nominee to be Jeremy so he has a less of a chance to play veto. Helen suggests Spencer, but Amanda and McCrae are all about Howard being the third nominee.

Spencer and Helen meet and Spencer spills his guts about the Moving Company alliance, hoping to secure his safety with Helen by showing her he’s ready to be honest and loyal. So now she knows Howard lied to her. Spencer tells Howard that so now he has to work on his own safety.


And once again, we find out Elissa is is MVP for the week. And the rules are the same. She has to secretly name the third nominee and we get a Xanax-laced Diary Room from her that sort of makes me want to jump in front of a bus.

Elissa again reveals that she’s MVP to everyone, so McCrae and Amanda tell Elissa that she “HAS TO” put Howard up. Elissa really doesn’t want to do that, though.

Speaking of Howard, he finally decides to come clean with Helen and he does it in front of most of the others. He turns it on nicely and actually pulls out some real tears from Helen this time. Well-played, Howard.

Elissa decides to speak to Helen about the MVP nominee and how important she is to the group. Elissa isn’t thrilled that Helen didn’t talk to her about who she was going to nominate yet they all want Elissa to do what they want with her nominee. Helen and Elissa decide that Spencer might as well go up since that third nominee won’t be the person going home.

The group gets back together and Amanda and McCrae are all HOWARD HOWARD HOWARD and Elissa is all N……………O………….N………..O……….T……….H………oward.

It’s time to find out who Elissa nominated. And it’s not Howard, it’s Spencer.

And the they pick the veto players. Joining Helen and the nominees are GinaMarie and Candice. The Jeremy backdoor is a go and everyone knows it.

But not so fast. Kailtin plans to win the veto and not use it. And she gets to GinaMarie to try to convince her to not use it if she wins.

At the veto competition it’s a memory/still competition and everyone kind of blows at it except for Kaitlin. And she wins veto. That’s a near-Head of Household competition win and now a Veto win. If she gets her head in the game without Jeremy or Aaryn, she could be a contender in this game.


So then Kaitlin has to decide whether or not to use the veto. She considers not doing it, but she finally realizes that would just be ridiculous. So she uses the veto and Jeremy goes up in her place.
