Episode 3 – July 2, 2013
Man oh man, this group of contestants is ridiculously stupid. Stupid stupid stupid. They’re stupid not just in gameplay, but also in personal attributes. Now, I had this impression from just watching the show last night, but I’ve had the displeasure of also reading about the “true” things going on in the show from the live feeds, and I’m nauseous. I’m also quite a bit disappointed in my girls Amanda and Kaitlin because of it, while reinforced in my dislike of Aaryn (ugh) and Jeremy (super-ugh). VERY disappointed in finding out about GinaMarie, but probably shouldn’t be surprised. Here’s a link from the site Reality Blurred with the details, if you’re so inclined:
It’s a bit difficult to write about this show without being biased due to the article, but I will continue on for now. If CBS was ballsy, they’d air some of this stuff. Maybe they will as this news is getting a lot of attention.
The MVP and his or her Nomination
I guess I was surprised that Elissa actually received this vote, but if you consider that all the public had to go on was what they saw on the website, an easy thing to vote on would be that she’s sisters with Rachel. It could also have gone the other way too, as there are plenty of Rachel-haters out there too.
Anyway, let’s get the discussion started about “stupid.” Elissa has no clue how to play this game. Rachel did. I believe that Elissa’s huge misstep was to pretend and ignore she was Rachel’s sister. She should have brought it up and laughed it off. She didn’t. Elissa then brought it up in front of not just McCrae but others in the HoH Room, confusing the hell out of me. I was relieved because it seemed she had revealed it, just not on the show. Nope, she makes a crack about her famous sister… being Gisele, confusing and infuriating Jeremy even more. Not that I care if Jeremy is mad, but Elissa should. She then claims she never said that, further pissing Jeremy off.
If all that isn’t bad enough, everyone correctly assumes that Elissa will get the MVP role due to her Rachel ties. She then consults with McCrae on who he wants out (David) and then he tells her that regardless of what she does, when the Veto is played, he’s putting her up. And all she does is whine about it. Here’s a chance to just get things straight with the house and reveal your relationship, hopefully smooth it out, and let people get over it (hello, Aaryn and Jeremy). But no, she trusts McCrae and of course, later on, he does exactly what he promised to do earlier. Good riddance if she gets voted out, but seriously, I could lose at least half of the houseguests in there now and I’d be fine with it.
Why, Kaitlin, Why?
If you read the article linked above, you can only imagine where this picture is in the timeline of events Jeremy talks about. UGH. You seemed to have better judgment but I’m hoping it’s all for game. Because seriously, have you listened to a word Jeremy says? HE’S A FUCKING DOUCHENOZZLE MUTHAFUCKA. Plus, I thought girls had a problem with being called a bitch. Maybe not?
You’re on probationary status for now, Kaitlin, in terms of whether or not you remain one of My Girls. As it is, I’m thinking of including Helen as she at least seems sympathetic and one of the few nice people in the house. I laugh, because watch, I’ll be typing about how horrible a person Helen is a few days from now for something awful we all learn about.
OH FOR FUCKS SAKE. McCrae fucking threw this Power of VETO competition, or so he thought, by submitting an 8-letter word. The mental fucking giants of this competition proved he wayyyyy overestimated his opponents. What other words were there this time? Let’s see – we had David’s ZERO-LETTER submission, Candice’s 5-letter RAFTS, Howard and Jessie tying at 7 letters, and Elissa with the win having the 9-letter POTROASTS…..I shivered thinking CBS would allow it, but since they do have seemingly an iota of shame, they didn’t, as that is in fact TWO WORDS.
Do I want Elissa to stay? Actually, yes. She’s not completely awful in my mind but she is just terrible at this game. Just effing terrible.
Power of Veto Time
McCrae won the Power of Veto and as HoH, he now has the tricky decision of backdooring Elissa (his words, not mine….actually, I think Elissa said that, so here’s where I can say, “that’s what she said”) or leaving his nominations the same. Elissa appeals to McCrae’s original deal with her but since I’ve already spoiled this decision up above, he obviously isn’t interested in that and wants to keep the house happy. Nick also makes a Moving Company appeal to use this as an opportunity to get rid of David, which I am totally okay with. It makes much more strategic sense, although I can also see that as a bold declaration that the game is being played.
Our Final Nominees Are:
A whole lot of brainpower up for eviction, right? To be fair, Jessie may not be that stupid, but she has plenty of arrogance to go around. Elissa has plenty of bad gameplay justifying her place at the nomination couch, but part of me still wants her to stay. Cryptically, McCrae also revealed to us that Elissa is certainly not the actual target for eviction this week, but we’ll have to see tonight’s first live episode in order to determine if that’s the actual truth. Finally, Mr. David, if you end up going home, you should thank McCrae and the Moving Company. Why? Your showmance with Aaryn is all sorts of fucked up. That bitch (Jeremy’s word, not mine) be cray cray. Also, you need to get a fucking job. That whole conversation you and Aryan (fuck it, that’s how I’m spelling it now since it’s been made clear she’s a racist, homophobic motherfucker) had about career and ambition made me throw up in my mouth.
In the next episode? Live eviction and the HoH competition.
