Big Brother is a great big pressure cooker and eventually most everyone feels the heat. Last night after the live show ended Amanda cracked from all that stress.
When the Feeds returned we immediately found Amanda tearing up and explaining her loss to McCrae. The obvious was confirmed. McCrae threw his round to Amanda and Amanda repeatedly instructed Aaryn to throw the last round to her. Aaryn later admitted she waited and waited for Amanda to ring in since the answer was clear, but when it seemed she wouldn’t hit her buzzer Aaryn went ahead, hit it, and won.
Amanda said she was nervous and her brain doesn’t work well under pressure. McCrae was frustrated, but was still going very easy on her about it. When he declared he wouldn’t throw another competition again Amanda got really upset.
Flashback to 7:05PM BBT 8/15 on your Live Feeds and you’ll find Amanda jumping up from the Lounge couch and pouting to McCrae about how he’s “stuck” with her and she “sucks.” She then immediately heads to the Storage room where she sits down in the corner and drags the trash bin in front of her to hide and cry.
Amanda stays there in the corner hiding for at least a solid eight minutes before the cameras give up and move back to the rest of the house. When she does emerge Amanda continues to complain about her competition performance. She tells Aaryn that she’s mad that she has to see Aaryn’s pictures again instead of her own.
Amanda predicts she’ll leave the game having never won anything. Aaryn jokes that next week she (Aaryn) can’t compete in the HoH comp so maybe she’ll win that one. The joke doesn’t go over so well.
But whether Amanda won or not, she quickly recovers and gets back to what she does best, controlling the other HGs and the upcoming nominations.
Do you think think Amanda has what it takes to win a competition this season?
