Thursday’s HoH competition held a lot in its balance. On one side you had Elissa, in the middle there were The Exterminators, and on the other side you’ll find McCranda. Unfortunately for McCranda they don’t quite yet realize the house is against them.
Julie Chen promised us we’d see a mysterious competition on Sunday’s Big Brother 15 and sure enough the HGs were surprised by a luxury comp earlier today.
The Live Feeds went to Trivia when the HGs were still slowly waking up and when they returned the house was a disaster zone. Confetti and popped balloons littered the house as HGs swept the floors and talked about what just went down.
It turns out that Spencer was the big winner and earned a $10,000 prize! Combine that with his Bahamas trip and his stipend even if he wins nothing else and he’ll have done pretty well for himself this season.
The HGs were given an hour to complete the competition but Spencer found all the tokens he needed to win in under four minutes, according to Judd. Well that was probably a letdown for BB! They can probably play it at normal speed on the show!
Which HG would you have wanted to win the $10,000 prize?
Aaryn Gries became the fourth member of the Big Brother 15 Jury last night when she was evicted in a 5-0 vote. Following her eviction Aaryn sat with Big Brother host Julie Chen for the customary interview, but the interview was anything but ordinary.
Confronted by statements Aaryn made in the house, Aaryn denied remembering those things being said or that any of it was said with malice or ill intent. When Julie asked how she would respond to accusations of racism Aaryn had this to say:
“Being Southern, it’s a stereotype. I have said somethings that have been taken completely out of context and wrong and I do not mean to ever come off racist and that’s not me and I apologize to anyone that I’ve offended for that.”
When offered a chance for her final thoughts Aaryn blamed the situation on a misunderstanding of cultural differences:
“I honestly, I feel horrible. I feel like in Texas, we say things that are sometimes we joke and don’t mean it. I really feel bad that this is how it’s being seen and how I’ve come across to people.
I don’t want to seem like that person. I really do respect everyone in this game although we’ve had some really hard times because we’re fighting for our lives in this game.”
Julie closes by telling Aaryn that she hopes she’ll find a new perspective on things once she goes home and sees the footage for herself.
In online comments we reviewed some viewers felt Julie Chen and the studio audience went too far while others were glad CBS and Julie took the time to address the issue. How do you feel about Aaryn’s exit interview and the things that were said?
Aaryn is now headed to the Jury house and will have no additional interviews until after the season finale next month. She will not be aware of the real world results of her actions such as losing her modeling contract until after the show has ended.
If you missed the interview on last night’s Big Brother or want to see it again then watch the video below. Note that CBS isn’t pulling any punches per the official video’s title.
As part of the latest BB15 HoH competition the HGs were fighting not only for the power to pick the nominations but also to avoid a punishment.
The last place players, those with the fewest eggs in their basket at the end, would be stuck with either a chicken or bunny suit. Viewers voted live and the chicken suit won out, but now that we know who got the suits I’m kinda wishing they had been bunnies!
Spencer and Judd came in last place and after a trip to the DR they returned to show off their new feathers. Everyone loved their costumes, well, except for the guys wearing it!
It’ll just be for two short days so enjoy it while you can. Spencer has already been busy making chicken jokes and I’d guess Judd will get over the embarrassment soon enough to have some fun with it. At least neither is alone in the situation!
Which HGs would you have wanted to see wearing the chicken suits?
Aaryn is gone and GinaMarie holds the Big Brother 15 Head of Household power, so it didn’t take long for Amanda to start telling GinaMarie what to do with her HOH this week. But GinaMarie isn’t having it. She seems pretty solid with her new alliance with Andy, Judd and Spencer.
Read about those moments and others on our Live Feed highlights below. And remember to sign-up now for the Big Brother Feeds so you can watch any of these moments by using the Flashback archive feature.

Another endurance comp?! Well, it’s more of a mini-endurance comp as six HGs must race to be the first to get a dozen eggs through the maze behind chicken wire mesh. The last place HG will have to wear a chicken suit for a few days.
Are you ready to find out who won tonight’s competition? It was a critical battle to decide if McCranda or Elissa would end up this week’s target. Read on for the spoilers!
