Sunday's Big Brother 15 started off per usual giving us a more in-depth look at all the behind the scenes goings on from Thursday's live eviction. It was all the more interesting since this week it was a double elimination with a lot of bickering and dealing going on. We got confirmation that McCrae did know who the disloyal houseguest was in the "Big Brother" house, but his move he made was so as to appease the others, according to Zap2it on Sept. 8.
McCrae realized Elissa was loyal, and Andy was the flipper, but he knew he had to put Elissa up for elimination and get her out because that's what the others wanted.
Elissa makes a good argument to keep her, since nobody in jury will vote for her. Not many in the BB house like her other than Helen. Also, given her wealthy husband and former "Big Brother" winner sister Rachel, she's less likely to win in the end.
Then there's Elissa's game playing. The fact that she asked McCrae if he voted his own showmance lover Amanda out shows how clueless she can be.
But, when Judd won POV and Elissa begged for her life to him, she insisted she had nothing to do with his prior eviction. While true, it was masterminded by Helen and Amanda, she did vote him out.
So the deed is done, as Elissa followed Amanda out the door. Now onto the next HoH competition. It involves the houseguests having to recognize a pixelated image of a comp and then assemble a puzzle of that person's face who won it.
The slowest guest after each round was eliminated. In one round, Judd freaks when he can't assemble Aaryn's hair correctly. He jokes after that Aaryn voted him out, then he voted her out, and now she's screwing him again with her "dang" hair.
In the end, Spencer prevails, exclaiming how nice it is to be on top of the heap after sitting on the block seven times. One of his HoH perks is that he gets to bestow "gifts" on the other houseguests.
He decides to bestow the gift of friendship on GinaMarie and McCrae, which means they're tethered together for 24 hours. Spencer chooses GM to do this because he trusts her most, she's the most honest and upfront in his opinion and won't form a new alliance.
GinaMarie jokes that McCrae just lost his ball and chain, and now he's got a new one.
Spencer gives Andy the gift of wealth, which meant he got to pick three piggy banks from 24, where he could possible win $5,000 in cash.
Unfortunately Andy ends up with a whopping $94.83. The final gift was given to Judd, which was the gift of health. He had to jump up and do exercises whenever the BB drill sergeant hollered out orders.
While McCrae is tied up to GM, he tries to form final two with her. She seems to go along, but in reality she admits this means he's smarter than she thought, is onto the Exterminators, and has to go.
McCrae thinks just Judd, Andy and Spencer are in cahoots. He knows he's the obvious target now, but he vows he's got a lot of game left in him, that they haven't really seen him play yet.
Spencer lies to McCrae telling him he wants GM out and he's safe. He claims he wants the final four to be a guys only club. Spencer's hoping this lie will make McCrae not try for the POV as hard. Nice try, but not likely.
Spencer warns GM he's putting her up next to McCrae as a pawn. It all comes down to this week's POV, since McCrae will most likely walk out of the "Big Brother" house if he doesn't win it.
If he does manage to get POV, everything could change because that means one of the mighty Exterminators will be evicted.
The nomination ceremony is understandably anticlimactic, as GM and McCrae go up on the block.
Spencer calls McCrae the last "speedbump" on way to an Exterminator final four.
News comes at the end of the show that in Wednesday's special elimination episode, former BB winner Ian will make an appearance.
It's a big week in the "Big Brother" house, as the final three will be in place for next week's finale after Thursday's live eviction episode.
