Drama in the Big Brother house just doesn’t stop this year. Between racist and homophobic comments, vicious verbal attacks and flat out nastiness, I had given up caring about any of the contestants. That is, until Elissa won the HOH once Helen was out. I thought the house would flip and we might actually see the bullies leave the game.
Of all weeks that Amanda would pull it together, it would be this week. Her winning the veto competition was disheartening. I felt it was a great time for Elissa to finally get the bossy, whiny real estate agent out of the house. Elissa’s plan was set and all was good with the Big Brother world.
After Elissa had talked with everyone and set things up to backdoor Amanda, it seemed the game would finally get underway. Amanda has laid around the house with her showmance buddy, McCrae, all season long. She and McCrae do nothing besides nap, eat and then Amanda spends her awake time complaining, bullying and crying because she has not been able to win anything. This time, she pulled it off. Amanda put the gold veto necklace over her head and the house was doomed.
Amanda went into immediate “Amanda mode,” talking with every house guest, ensuring they know what it is she wants in the game. The veto title went to her head and Amanda was on the path to being Big Brother’s biggest witch of the game.
Around 2:15 Sunday afternoon, Elissa walked onto the patio and told McCrae to speak to Amanda about going through her clothing and personal items. McCrae stated Amanda had not touched any of her things and that Elissa needed to stay out of his personal belongings. The argument quickly escalated when Elissa told McCrae she would tell production about the whole ordeal. McCrae jumped up like a little kid and ran to production first, saying he wanted to tell them before she got a chance to.
McCrae was not buzzed in to the diary room. He went back outside where he and Elissa exchanged words again. Elissa told McCrae she had moved his clothing out of one drawer because they were dirty clothes and he had them sprawled out between three drawers. McCrae informed her that he would go “pitbull” on her if she touched his things again.
Amanda went outside a few minutes later. McCrae began to fill her in and of course, Amanda and McCrae began slamming Elissa with nasty comments about her family. Amanda made a comment about Elissa’s husband being 78-years-old. She added that Elissa is a bad step mother because she never speaks about her step son. Elissa was quiet through the whole childish scene caused by Amanda and McCrae.
Of course, Amanda couldn’t keep her mouth shut. She went inside and began putting on make-up. Aaryn looked on as Amanda threw in comments about Elissa having plastic surgery while she was slapping make-up on her face to cover all of her flaws.
Elissa proceeded to run through her regular routine of yoga exercises while Amanda was in the bathroom with Aaryn. Amanda claimed she hadn’t touched Elissa’s stuff, but she was “going to now.” She went into Elissa’s drawers and grabbed Elissa’s name tag and placed it behind the toilet seat.
The day continued with Amanda following Elissa around the house, blowing a kazoo in her ear. She stated she would keep it up all day, to annoy Elissa. It got to the point where Elissa ran up to the HOH room to get away from her, although Elissa was laughing, it was getting to her.
Amanda did keep it up through the day, even dressing up in a bathrobe and a party hat. She painted her face up to look like a deranged cat. It went on through the afternoon, until the live feeds shut down. When the cameras came back up, the subject was dropped. Later in the evening, Amanda was overheard telling another house guest that she was asked by production to stop what she was doing.
Now, there are hundreds of phone calls and emails flooding CBS, asking to stop the bullying that Amanda is doing to Elissa. Fans are sickened by the fact that Amanda is still in the Big Brother house after she has treated everyone so badly. The latest Elissa bullying is the final straw.
Fans have begun a Facebook page to have everyone sign on to show CBS how serious they are to have Amanda removed. The “Remove Amanda Zuckerman From Big Brother 15” Facebook page now has more “likes” than Amanda’s fan page.
Fans in the live feed are encouraging each other to have CBS remove her from the house. With all of the turmoil on the show this season, I doubt if that will happen unless things go further. Amanda has been told by production to halt her nasty behavior and it seems she has quieted down thus far. We'll see as time progresses.
This group of house guests are in for quite the surprise when they return into the “real world.” Some have been fired from their jobs and the rest are disliked. It will be very interesting to see how these contestants are treated when they return to daily lives. Now, they all periodically speak of their return home and seem to believe they are funny, cute and popular with America. Thinking you’re some sort of television star and returning home to nastiness is definitely going to be a wake up call.
