Kaitlin Barnaby became the 4th evicted HG and first female to leave the Big Brother house this week when she was voted out in a 9-0 tally. As a complete newbie to the Big Brother game she often gave us an entertaining turn at the game though she didn’t leave without her own part in this season’s drama.
Read on to find out what Kaitlin had to say about her approach to the game, who she wishes she had aligned with, and her take on the racial commentary this season.
Big Brother Network: What was your best move this season and what was your worst?
Kaitlin Barnaby: I think my worst move this season was giving my loyalty away too fast to Aaryn. I think she was great downfall in my game. I definitely aligned with the wrong people in the house.
My best move in the house was probably continuing to be a hard competitor.
BBN: As for aligning with the wrong people, if you could start over and pick a new alliance with 4 other HGs, who would it be?
Kaitlin: I would probably have to say Andy and Helen, and I know they were associated with Candice and Elissa as well. I think Helen is a very loyal player, she’s brilliant, and I love Andy to death.
BBN: What are your thoughts on the MVP nominee this past week now that you know it’s America?
Later today the next round of Big Brother 15 nominations for Week 5 will be announced. Thanks to what we’ve heard on the Live Feeds we have a clear picture of where Aaryn, the new HoH, is heading with her picks, or should we say the picks she’s been assigned.
Part of Aaryn’s deal to avoid eviction on Thursday was that she’d let Helen and others on that side tell her who to nominate this week. At the close of last night’s show we saw Big Jeff tell Julie he didn’t think Aaryn would stick to that agreement. I didn’t think she would either, but apparently she’s actually going to make good on that.
Just five short mins after the Feeds returned last night Helen had already pulled Aaryn in to the Storage Room to discuss possible nominees. Flashback to 7:05PM BBT to listen in. Surprisingly part of the discussion turned to Elissa and Helen’s consideration of putting her up. Aaryn told Helen that she’d do that for her, but then Helen would have to pretend to be angry at her about it. Helen indicated that wouldn’t be a problem, but she wanted to think about it.
It was an interesting week in the Big Brother 15 house. And by interesting I mean almost no one deserves to be on the list of top players. That’s because every time someone made a good move, they’d make a terrible move to cancel out the good move. So this week’s player rankings list is going to be interesting. So let’s get to it.
Big Brother 15 Week 4 Player Rankings
1. America. Yes, you are No. 1 this week. Simply because you “overwhelmingly” voted Aaryn as this week’s MVP nominee. Of course Judd nominated her, so America’s No. 2 pick – Elissa – went up. Which still baffles me. Does Elissa have just slightly few haters than she does fans? Because you guys voted her MVP three other times. Or were you really just confused as to what you were voting for. Maybe you really don’t deserve to be No. 1, America!
2. Aaryn. This is very painful to admit, but Aaryn is the only player who didn’t cancel out any good moves she made. She made all the right deals and threw all the right people under the bus to go from public enemy No. 1 to safe (and coincidentally the Week 5 Head of Household). I’m a credit where credit is due kind of guy. And while I’d love to put Aaryn in last place for all the things she’s said, I just can’t.
For the second straight week, America will be acting as the Big Brother MVP and voting to nominate a third Houseguest. This could be the new trend for the season twist at least until Elissa is evicted. I guess production grew tired of handing the power over to the same person week after week.
Voting is open now at CBS.com and will close tonight at 6PM PT (9PM ET) so you won’t want to wait too much longer. The official nominations likely won’t be revealed until after the voting has closed so if you are waiting for those details before voting then you will probably miss your chance to vote. Currently Aaryn is suggesting she’ll nominate Howard & Spencer, so adjust your voting plans accordingly.
A few reminders on how the voting works for BBMVP. The HoH can not be nominated. If you vote for Aaryn then your votes are basically tossed in the trash. Similarly, the HoH’s nominees can not be nominated for MVP either. If your vote target ends up nominated then those votes are also discarded. Production will go down the list to find the next available HGs in the results who is neither HoH nor nominated to name this week’s 3rd nomination.
So who do you want to become this week’s MVP nominated HG? Vote in our poll and share your thoughts below! Don’t forget to vote at CBS.com before the polls close tonight.
It’s the night after a Big Brother 15 live eviction, so that means a lot of scrambling, alliance shifting and sucking up. And we got all of that and more last night on the Live Feeds.
Read about those moments and others on our Live Feeds highlights below. And remember that you can check out any of these moments by using the Live Feeds flashback/archive feature.
Big Brother 15 Live Feed Highlights – Thursday, July 25, 2013
After three weeks of saying goodbye to a guy houseguest, we finally said goodbye to a girl on tonight’s Big Brother 15. A “Mean Girl,” to be exact. Hey, even Julie Chen called them that, so I think it’s officially OK for me to do so.
At the top of the episode Julie tells us how the MVP votes played out. Apparently we “overwhelmingly” voted for Aaryn to go up as the third nominee, but since Judd nominated her, Elissa went up as the person with the second-most votes.
The episode picks up right after America decided to replace Elissa with GinaMarie as the MVP nominee. GinaMarie, Aaryn and Katilin start scrambling. Aaryn starts her campaign agains GinaMarie right away. And then when she realizes that’s not working, she starts throwing Kaitlin under the bus.
The other houseguests are agreeing that Kaitlin is a target so the talk among the house turns to maybe keeping Aaryn until next week and ditching Kaitlin because she’s more of a threat. Elissa, Candice and Howard are more inclined to evict Aaryn, but eventually Kaitlin’s name gets moved to the top of the list.
