Another week, another blindside on Big Brother 15. This time Nick Uhas fell victim to the MVP twist and found himself betrayed by his alliance and evicted in a 7-4 vote as part of last night’s very exciting and intense live show.
Today I spoke with Nick about his experiences and reactions to what went on inside the house. We talked about what went wrong with the Moving Company alliance, his questionable showmance with GinaMarie, and what he’s got planned for his future.
BBN: Why, oh why didn’t you tell Elissa what she wanted to hear?
Nick Uhas: Talk about one situation where you can basically pinpoint the downfall of Nick Uhas. I was on this uphill battle to gain trust with the Blondentourage so I never wanted to be seen with Elissa or ever talking game with Elissa.
She asked me in the middle of the kitchen. I didn’t want to give her an answer, talk to her, or be close to her. I wanted to get out of the situation, not tell her what she wants to hear.
Elissa is a loudspeaker to the house. If I gave her a name, ‘Kaitlin, yeah that’s good,’ that would get back to the Blondentourage. All my hard work and getting in to the Blondetourage would be impossible.
BBN: Who do you blame the most for your eviction?
Nick: I blame the most actually Spencer, but to my knowledge now it looks like Helen.
BBN: What do you think caused the breakup of the Moving Company?
Nick: Oh man, totally bummed. The problem with the Moving Company’s demise was that there wasn’t enough time to build significant trust. My attitude going in was I would blindly trust five people and build trust over time. You can’t have a secret alliance without trusting them and trusting they’re going to do what they say in this game. Otherwise you’re going to spend so much time paranoid that you’re going to paranoia yourself out of that situation.
I think that was actually the downfall of the Moving Company. I think that Howard and Spencer got to a point where they talked so much game among themselves that Spencer eventually paranoid’d himself out of the Moving Company. I don’t know why it was advantageous to remove himself by casting a vote against me. He did have so much power on his side of the house that it made sense for him to not be exposed by the Moving Company, but I was thinking a little more long term.
BBN: If you got to start over and build a new MC, who would you ask to join?
Nick: I would ask the exact same people to join. Only difference is I would start another alliance among myself, GinaMarie, Helen, and Helen’s pals. Helen is a shaker and a mover who is intelligent who I completely overlooked until almost the last day but it was too late because we were on the block together. It’s really hard to build an alliance when you’re almost competing with each other.
BBN: What was your best move and what was your worst?
Nick: The best move in the house was creating the Moving Company! The worst move in the house was creating the Moving Company!
BBN: How do you really feel about GinaMarie?
It’s time for a little payback on Big Brother 15. The underdogs are in control of the Head of Household and likely the upcoming MVP power as well. Later tonight we’ll have the official nominations revealed on the Live Feeds.
If you thought last night was action-packed on the Feeds then just wait until the Mean Girls alliance and company go from feeling the heat to feeling the fire.
We’ve been watching the Feeds and know where Helen, the new HoH, is heading with her nominations. Find out what she’s planning and how she wants to make it happen.
Voting has opened for this week’s BB15 MVP and you better hurry because the polls close at 6PM PT (9PM ET) tonight (Thursday).
So far we’ve seen two straight weeks of Elissa holding the power and while I’d like to hope it’d be time for a new face in control I’m guessing we’ll see that continue this week. There are lots of great alternatives with Amanda, McCrae, Helen, Candice, etc. but really all those HGs are on the same team. So if we see Elissa get the power again but you really wanted someone else on her side then keep in mind that they’re all working together and it’s an important tool for the team, not just the individual.
As a reminder, the winner of CBS’ official poll will be given the choice of this week’s third nominee to face off against the two noms picked by the current HoH.
Of course we welcome you to vote at CBS.com however you best see fit and invite you to share your vote using our unofficial MVP poll below as well.
Another week has passed in the Big Brother 15 house and there’s been a big power shift in the house, but before we start the new week, it’s time to look back on how the houseguests played the game in Week 2.
I’ll pull out the Top 5 players and then rank the rest in order from best to last. And this is only from Week Two. Anything that happened after Thursday night’s live show will be considered for next week’s rankings. So let’s get to it.
Big Brother Week Two Player Rankings
1. Candice. Despite Candice suffering a HUGE amount of torture from Aaryn and her crew, she’s managed to keep her head in the game. So much so that she all but figured out the Moving Company alliance (despite being snowed by Howard). It was her prompting that lead to Nick’s nomination over Kaitlin. Candice is pretty much a hero in my eyes right now. Some might think Amanda or Helen deserve the top spot, but I beg to differ.
2. Amanda. This girl is playing this game. Not only did she form all the alliances she needed to keep her and McCrae safe, she managed to get everyone on board to save Elissa. She’s also playing the social game well and is great at being a behind-the-scenes puppet master.
Last night the Live Feeds gave us the most Big Brother 15 action we’ve seen all season and it’s only week 3. When the eviction show ended the Feeds burst in to fire with fights, threats, and more fights. What started as a sobbing mess of near pity transformed in to some of the worst hate we’ve seen yet. It was too much and went too far.
The first fight broke out at 9:21PM BBT when GinaMarie, who had yet to stop crying over Nick’s eviction, lashed out at Jessie and blamed her for Nick’s eviction. Jessie was trying to hide in her bed which was unfortunately in the room the Mean Girls alliance had now adopted. Jessie told her she was sorry she was feeling so bad, but GinaMarie responded saying it was “all your fault.” Kaitlin jumps on Jessie and blames her as well. GM suggests Jessie was just jealous of her and Nick which prompts Jessie to leave while telling them if they want to be mature then they can talk to her.
GinaMarie follows her out to the other room where the rest of the house is sitting and starts a lengthy, rambling rant. Her nonsensical blabbering is full of gems like these that must be watched to fully enjoy:
It was an insane night in the Big Brother 15 house after Nick’s surprise eviction. There were fights after fights and tears after tears all night long. And a lot of the battles were way below the belt. It was so insane that there’s not enough time in the day to recap all the highlights. Your best bet is to just get the Live Feeds now and flashback from 7:06 PM BBT and play it though.
