The ‘Mean Girls’ Alliance Shows Signs Of Cracking On Big Brother 15| July 9, 2013 at 2:28 PM EST
There are many other names I’d find far more appropriate for this little trio of ladies, but in an effort to keep this discussion clean let’s just call the Big Brother 15 team of Aaryn, Kaitlin, and GinaMarie the “Mean Girls” alliance.
Nearly a week ago I suggested the then pending exit of David would signal Aaryn’s shift to steal Jeremy for her own and oust his late-night naughty buddy, Kaitlin. Now it looks like Aaryn has decided Kaitlin is an obstacle in her path to have Jeremy for herself in this game. Whether or not it’s as a romantic interest is yet to be seen, but Aaryn does think Jeremy should be playing to help her, not Kaitlin.
Flashback on your Feeds to Sunday, 7/7 at 8:30PM BBT to find Aaryn talking privately with GinaMarie in the HoH room. Soon in to this conversation Aaryn reveals to GinaMarie that she wants Kaitlin out. She feels Kaitlin is clouding Jeremy’s mind and focus on the game. “We need to get her out without anyone knowing… between only me and you,” Aaryn said to GinaMarie. “We are gone before her… because she’s his squeeze.” Aaryn repeats that no one can know, but the two of them have to find a way to get her out without Jeremy knowing.
So how could these two manage to secretly get Kaitlin on the block? Enter Andy. Around 8:40PM BBT Andy comes up to the HoH room and talks with Aaryn about the upcoming vote and MVP renom. Andy tells her he wants Candice out, thinking that’s what she wants to hear. When he tells her not to worry about losing an alliance member Aaryn says she’s more worried about Kaitlin staying in the game. Does this sink in and send Andy running back to Helen and Elissa to say they could have an easier way of keeping both of them this week by MVP renom’ing Kaitlin? Nope. Not at all. He remains clueless.
On Monday we saw Elissa submit Nick’s name for the MVP renom instead of Kaitlin, her alternate option according to discussions. I definitely think this is a very risky move and will pose a much bigger challenge for her and her alliance to keep her over Nick. She could have faced off with Kaitlin who would have been a perfectly timed target for Aaryn, GinaMarie, and anyone else they could secretly convince to oppose her so Aaryn could have Jeremy all to herself.
Ah well, opportunity lost. Thanks, Andy. Well, Andy and GinaMarie could both be faulted here. Looking to protect Nick, GinaMarie could have realized Kaitlin going up would mean Nick couldn’t be voted out. If she had relayed this “Aaryn now wants Kaitlin out” message then he could have taken that back to Elissa since he knew she was considering renom’ing him. Whether or not she believed him would have been be up to her, but again, ah well.
The crumbling Mean Girls alliance took a few more hits last night as Aaryn continued to plant the seeds of doubt over Kaitlin in whoever she could get to listen. Jump to 11:20PM BBT 7/8 to hear Aaryn trashing Kaitlin to McCrae & Amanda. She’s again using the complaint that Kaitlin had never seen Big Brother before sequester, angling for the “get out the recruits” line of thinking.
A few hours later Aaryn is back at it with McCrae & Amanda. It seems to be working too. After Aaryn leaves and GM comes over Amanda parrots Aaryn’s complaints that Kaitlin is acting jealous and causing problems with her relationship with Jeremy. GM then repeats Aaryn’s complaints about Kaitlin being a recruit.
Aaryn then grows bold and goes to Jeremy with her Kaitlin complaints. Watch her work on him at 2:15AM BBT. Jeremy deflects most of Aaryn’s concerns and says he told Kaitlin to get over their feud and move on. I don’t think Aaryn is going to convince him to go against Kaitlin anytime soon.
While we won’t see the Mean Girls split up this week, or Jeremy’s rage reaction as a result, it still looks like we’re on the course to destruction with Aaryn feuding with a phantom problem and Kaitlin taking the brunt of Aaryn’s paranoia. Once again this year, there won’t be an all-girls powerhouse alliance. They rarely work in Big Brother, and here’s another case of it.
What do you think of Aaryn and GinaMarie turning on Kaitlin? Do you want to see them split up or stay together in the Big Brother 15 house?
