Tonight’s live eviction episode of Big Brother opened with Julie and the live audience before rewinding back to the Veto Meeting. Elissa knew Andy was working with Amanda and McCrae, so she wanted to nominate him to make sure she weakened their game. Aaryn assumed she was going home, and Andy was ready for his new plan going forward, without Amanda or McCrae.
Amanda continued to torment Elissa and talked to her the entire time she sliced an apple, asking how many doctors it took to get her face that way. Elissa continued to ignore Amanda. Elissa walked upstairs to the HoH Room, and Amanda went into the bedroom with McCrae and Spencer to continue her tirade. Spencer told her to chill out as she unleashed a string of swears and nasty comments about Elissa and wondered why everyone was being so nice to her. Andy stood and listened before trying to walk away, but Amanda yelled at him and told him to stay and listen to her.
Outside, GinaMarie, Andy, Spencer, and Judd sat around and decided to form an alliance to go against Amanda and McCrae. Judd suggested they call themselves “The Exterminators,” to get rid of snakes and rats.
Amanda told Aaryn she wanted her to stay, but Andy was with them before Aaryn. Aaryn said it made her mad that she put so much work in and did it for people who wouldn’t even keep her safe. The two of them were both in tears, so Amanda climbed into Aaryn’s bed to hug her and tell her she still had two more days.
Aaryn went to GinaMarie to ask for her vote, and GinaMarie told her she had her vote and needed to get two more. (In the Diary Room, GinaMarie said she wanted Aaryn to stay, but she made the alliance in case Aaryn wouldn’t). Outside, Aaryn moved onto Spencer and Judd, and Spencer questioned Aaryn’s loyalties. Aaryn admitted to being in an alliance with Andy, Amanda, and McCrae. Aaryn also said Amanda and McCrae were not going to keep her.
Aaryn told Amanda and McCrae that her staying there would be best for everyone’s game. She felt it took the target off everyone there, she had done more for Amanda and McCrae, and if she didn’t get their votes, she wouldn’t vote for them in the end. Aaryn even told them Spencer told her he would put both Amanda and McCrae up on the block, so Amanda called Spencer over, and he denied it. Spencer said he had never said that and had never talked game with Aaryn, so Aaryn kept saying he was the biggest liar ever, and Spencer walked off. After he left, Amanda said she knew he was lying, and Aaryn agreed to take them to the final three, leaving Amanda undecided on her vote.
Julie sat down with Season 10 winner and last season’s runner-up, Dan Gheesling. They talked about Amanda, and Dan felt she was one of the few people playing the game, but she was being really mean. He thought she was playing the game like a brat. Julie asked if Dan talks to anyone he blind-sided. Dan said everyone had forgiven him and he was cordial and friends with everyone. Back to this season, Dan said he is a big fan of Judd and is rooting for him. Julie asked his take on Amanda and McCrae, and Dan wondered why they were keeping a showmance in the house so long.
Next, they showed taped segments of the biggest showmances – first were Brendon and Rachel, who are now married. Dani and Dominic met during Season 13 and apparently had feelings for each other…and are now married. (What?!) Jeff and Jordan have been together four years and are still not engaged, but it is on the horizon…along with a big family.
Julie spoke with the houseguests and welcomed Judd back to the game. She wanted to know how he thought things in the house had changed, and he said people did him a favor and got rid of a couple people while he was gone. Julie congratulated Amanda on winning her first competition before asking why she tormented Elissa. Amanda said Elissa pushed her buttons, but she has since apologized, and now the houseguests know not to push her buttons. (Amanda was visibly uneasy after being called out on her rotten behavior). Elissa said emotions were running crazy this week and added bygones were bygones. Julie told them Twitter was abuzz at how messy the front bedroom got. She congratulated Spencer for not being on the block this week before asking him about the room. He told her Judd came back and took his drawers, so he has piles.
Julie gave Aaryn and Andy one last chance to speak – Aaryn said hi to her family and friends and thanked them for her letters before thanking Big Brother and telling the houseguests she was thankful to be in the house for 70 days. Andy gave a brief “Fourscore and seven years ago” speech to honor Abraham Lincoln and the state of Illinois before saying “Good night, good luck, and I love Anderson Cooper.” Everyone voted to evict Aaryn, and before Julie broke the news, she reminded us that because Aaryn was going to the Jury, she could not share any information with her from the outside world. (In other words, she still couldn’t be told she was fired from her job).
Aaryn hugged everyone good-bye and headed out to speak with Julie. At first, there were cheers, but there were also a lot of “boos” from the audience. Julie put on her serious voice and asked Aaryn why she was evicted 5-0, and Aaryn felt the others thought Andy would be easier to beat, since Aaryn had won so many competitions. Julie questioned Elissa and Aaryn’s relationship, and Aaryn said she loved Rachel and wondered what else Elissa was lying about when she didn’t tell them she was Rachel’s sister. Julie read off some of Aaryn’s racist comments, which she didn’t even remember saying. She regretted them and felt horrible and said she never meant to hurt anyone’s feelings. Aaryn said the show taught her a lot about people, and she loved everyone in the house. In the good-bye messages, Judd told Aaryn he loved her, but he had to get her out because she was aligned with Amanda and McCrae; Amanda told her she loved her, and she was the strongest female competitor in the house; Elissa told her she had nothing to say to her and to have fun in the Jury House…or not; and GinaMarie repeated that they are besties, and she will always be her BB buddy.
Next was the HoH Competition, called “Big Hopportunity.” Each houseguest had to reach through a fence, pick up an egg, work it through a maze that spelled HoH, and hop back to their basket with the egg. The first person to get 12 eggs in their basket would win. (Their feet were tied together the entire time, so they had to hop back and forth from their basket to the fence). Julie also revealed there would be a punishment for the houseguest with the fewest eggs in their basket, and America had chosen for that person to wear a chicken suit for the next 48 hours.
At the end of the show, the competition was still going, with Andy and GinaMarie in the lead, having two eggs each.
Spoiler Alert!! GinaMarie ended up winning HoH as the competition wrapped off-air, and the live feeds returned. The show will not reveal the winner until Sunday night’s episode, when the houseguests will also compete in a special competition. Then, next Thursday night will be the second live double eviction.
