Big Brother Season 15 Episode 15: America Got It Right!

By Mark Drum

Thank you America. I'm so happy that we got Amanda voted as the third nominee for BBMVP. However these houseguests are trying their best to play this game, but I would just really like to yell at them and get the people controlling the house out. Or at least those who are way to cocky and need to get themselves a reality check. I must say though I thoroughly enjoyed the reaction of Amanda finding out that she was the third nominee. Thank you America, we got it right! Well at least for who we thought should be nominated. Nonetheless still right in my eyes!

Howard's Town Hall Meeting

I really couldn't understand where Howard was going with his little meeting. I think Howard was trying to say he wasn't really controlling anything in the game. But it sounded like nothing to the other houseguest.  Even Dan Gheesling tweeted that Howard gave an "A+" effort, but lacked actual meaning. I did however like that Howard did attempt to try and save himself. Maybe he should have stuck with a funeral and called people out. Howard was just rambling and wasn't getting his point across. It was a flop but freaked the other houseguests. Now it freaked out the floaters because they need to leach onto whoever is in power and they were not buying it. Those floaters being Andy, Judd and Jessie. People who are controlling the game are Helen, Amanda and McCrae.

McManda On The Hunt For BBMVP

Speaking of McManda, I was jumping with joy seeing Amanda's face appear as the third nominee. However I was expecting the full spectrum of emotions from her; tears, hysteria, anger, depression, etc. Helen should be careful what she says in the Diary room, you never know who the BBMVP is. America has been the BBMVP for two weeks now, who says we won't be it next week? The houseguests should think strategically why the third person was nominated since the HOH isn't the one nominating them. Rather than who nominated Amanda, I something the houseguests seem to forget America is watching and don't think that America could have a say in the game.

I wasn't surprised by McCrae's shocked look, but I was annoyed by how pissed he was that Amanda was nominated. He has every right to be pissed but this isn't a dating reality show this is a social experiment type reality show with competitions. McManda can just start to go away. Did anyone else find it ironic that Amanda talked about Candice and Howard being in a showmance and putting the targets on them. Little does she forget that herself and McCrae are also a showmance couple. Dan said it best "love" doesn't work in the Big Brother house. Hopefully McCrae realizes that and actually starts playing the game without having a crutch in Amanda, because let's face it if Amanda had the chance she would thow McCrae out the door for her chance to win the half a million dollar prize.

Random Segments For Floaters

As I've mentioned before Andy, Judd and Jessie have been floaters. Andy is a "strategic" floater while Jessie is just a floater and Judd is playing both strategic and lackluster gameplay. I feel as though editing had felt obligated to showcase both Andy and Jessie since neither have really had a chance to shine. Andy still comes off annoying and catty about many situations. It was funny however seeing him get attacked by the bird. According to Dan, they tried getting a bird in the house but Dan states he needed some "Ginger" to get some birds to land. I was cracking up by this statement.

Jessie's little soapbox is starting to get old. She can just stay in that box to float. Jessie has yet to make any interesting moves to shake up the house. Her attempt at the POV competition was a bit sad, hoping Jessie would prove the other houseguests wrong, to show she was a competitor. I really didn't understand Jessie's need to communicate to Howard about being nominated. I would have hoped Jessie would fight to stay in the game rather than just coast along. While Judd is sitting pretty being safe from last week with a deal with Aaryn, while Judd isn't being seen as a target by the other houseguests. Which can hurt and hinder the characters.

My Prediction Of Eviction

Sadly it will be a unanimous vote for Howard to be eliminated. I really wished by some chance Amanda would be sent packing but I don't see that happening in the near future. I would be pleasantly surprised if someone does vote for Amanda to get booted from the house. Here's hopping that a slim chance that we see Amanda go home. But Helen being the political consultant she is, has already secured the votes from others for whom she'd want to be addicted.

My Prediction For HOH

I just hope it's Candice or a floater. It would be interesting to see Candice see revenge against Helen and Elissa.  Or floater (i.e. Andy, Judd & Candice). The reason I would say a floater may get it is because this time in the game now calls for the players to play hard and have a "Go Big or Go Home" mentality. But I also have a feeling this HOH may be an endurance competition so we'll have to wait and see.

Looking forward to tonight's episode of Big Brother 15 and see who will eliminated tonight! Tune in at CBS 62 at 9 p.m. to find out who will go home and check out my recaps to get caught up before the live eviction!
