Tonight’s live eviction episode of Big Brother started out with Julie Chen and the live audience before rewinding back to the Veto Meeting. Spencer wasn’t surprised to go up on the block, and Helen and Elissa went to Aaryn and GinaMarie to talk about working together. Helen became very emotional, and Andy joined the group. As Helen cried, she told Andy that he was the swing vote, and she knew she already had Elissa and GinaMarie’s votes 100%, but she needed his. Andy was offended that Helen was questioning him, so he stormed out of the room and went downstairs to tell Amanda.
Helen pulled her “alliance member” McCrae into the lounge room to talk. She ended up lecturing him on standing up to Amanda and not letting her treat him the way she does, because how would she treat him for the rest of their lives if he didn’t do something now? Amanda walked in and asked for a cigarette, so she and McCrae went outside together, and he told her everything. Amanda went up to the HoH Room and complained to Spencer and Andy, asking them if she was a bully. Spencer told her she is just “assertively honest,” and McCrae admitted she is bossy.
Elissa, Helen, and GinaMarie talked around the hot tub. Elissa said Helen was what keeps her, GinaMarie, and Aaryn together. GinaMarie said she wanted to keep Helen because Spencer never talks to her. Elissa and Helen decided to tell Andy he would end up as a target and go up on the block next week if he voted Helen out, so they went upstairs to tell him. Andy was honest and said he was wavering with his vote. Helen reminded him that America is watching him, and he is the swing vote. (Who’s the bully now?)
Julie checked in with the houseguests and showed them footage of the last Have/Have Not Competition, which took place in the large black box in the backyard. Julie then asked Amanda what entered her mind, and she said she was scared that Elissa was leading them. Julie asked GinaMarie the hardest part of the challenge, and she said walking around and not seeing anything in front of their heads, not even their hands. They also showed footage of the last Veto Competition, and Julie asked Andy what he was thinking when Elissa took him out. He said her eyes were burning right through him, and he didn’t want to get in her way.
Julie gave Spencer and Helen the chance to speak – Spencer said hi to his friends and family, told Elissa he couldn’t ask for her vote, and told Helen she is a wonderful competitor. Helen also said hi to her family and friends and thanked her husband for taking care of her house and children before telling the houseguests she would love their vote and would take the memories with her forever. Everyone except Elissa voted to evict Helen, so she gave the group tearful hugs before finally leaving the house.
Helen joined Julie outside the house, and Julie asked about Helen’s alliance with Andy and McCrae. Helen explained she could tell Andy wasn’t loyal to her during his time as HoH. Helen thought Judd was a bigger threat than Amanda and mentioned all of the conspiracy theories around Judd. Julie asked about Helen’s tears this week, and she said she was trying to stay in the house. In the good-bye messages, Andy told Helen she had been bad to other people, so he needed to get rid of her; McCrae compared the game to a chess board and said Helen kept going after his queen; Amanda told Helen she had to get her out before she got Amanda out; and Elissa told her she would miss her every single day. Julie asked what Helen would have done differently, and Helen said she would have taken Amanda out instead of Howard. Julie then told Helen she would be competing against the other Jury members for a chance to get back in the house, which Helen was quite excited about.
They showed footage of Candice and Judd arriving at the Jury House. Candice hoped for GinaMarie, but she was shocked to see Judd and find out he was back-doored. They were both surprised to see Jessie, and Candice immediately wanted to hear all the gossip. Jessie filled them in on Helen’s shady behavior. Two days ago, the three of them received a giant spread of food and a note telling them one of the Jurors would get back in the game. All three of them immediately plotted their revenge.
Back in the studio, Helen was literally bouncing with excitement as Julie explained they would compete against each other in a head-to-head competition. Julie called the houseguests to the living room and revealed the twist, which they were shocked to hear. The doorbell rang, and the four Jurors strutted back into the house to plenty of happy hugs and screams. Julie instructed everyone to head out to the backyard.
The Jury competed at the same time the rest of the houseguests competed for Head of Household – the four of them were sectioned off and wore red shirts, while the others wore gray shirts. Each person stood on a small platform and had balls shot at them. (The platform moved back and forth and up and down). The first person to catch 10 balls would win HoH, and the first Juror to catch 10 balls would get back into the game. If that person was also the first of everyone, they would get back into the game and be the new HoH.
As the show ended, the houseguests were being sprayed with sprinklers, and Jessie was in the lead, having caught two balls.
