Let's dive into the afternoon pre-nom talks with Andy! :D
Currently on the live feeds...
Andy is telling McCrae that he's putting up Spencer/Jessie but lied to Jessie and told her she's safe this week (she's the target). He told Jessie that he has a "master plan" just to keep her calm this week in case she ends up staying.
McCrae thinks that Elissa is gonna gun after him (Mc) next week if she wins HOH.
Andy tells GM she's not going up & asks for the favor in return next week if she wins HOH. She says ok. Andy says to not tell Jessie that she's the target and to fight for veto so that Jessie can't win. They hug & she leaves to go get Spencer to talk to Andy next. (Spencer in the shower, though.)
Andy: "I don't want Spencer to go anywhere this week."
Helen: "So we have to make Jessie feel like she's safe this week."
Andy tells Spencer he doesn't want him to go anywhere.
Andy: "If you go up, there is not 1 f**king chance in hell you're going anywhere. It is best for me to go into next week with zero enemies...that's the best thing for the both us going forward. Jessie is my target & even if she wins veto, GM will go up and out. You have to trust me."
Spencer: "I trust you."
Andy: "I SWEAR to GOD you are not going home!"
Spencer: "If you have the votes to keep me, then.."
Andy is reassuring Spencer that either way, he's 100% safe, no matter who wins the veto.
Andy: "I have the votes, no matter what, you WILL stay! OK?"
They think by Andy putting him up, it'll make it look like Andy doesn't care too much about Spencer so they won't think they're working together in the game. Spencer says he trusts Andy.
BB: "Houseguests, this is a lockdown. Please go outside."
Spencer/Andy leave the HOH room.
HG's start going outside.
**Could be for the Have Not food reveal.
All HG's are outside.
HG's still outside on lockdown.
Feeds on fishies.
Have Nots got their food for the week: Mung beans & Mackerel (it's a type of fish).
Elissa: "That's so gross, all those fish heads."
Andy: "I wanna blindside Jessie. I told her she's not my target. If I win the veto, I'm keeping the nominations the same. I don't want GM to go home."
Andy: "If you get picked to play for veto, win it & keep the nominations the same."
They're talking about Spencer: Andy trusts him, Aaryn..not so much.
Aaryn: "I just don't wanna go up next to Amanda, and I have a feeling (Spencer) would put me up against her."
Andy starts saying how if his plan goes accordingly, then he won't have any blood on his hands and zero people after him next week. Aaryn warns him that if GM goes up, she'll have to go home because she'll go crazy.
Andy: "Are you ok with this plan?"
Aaryn: "Mm hm! I do."
Aaryn said that Jessie is really loyal to her now and doesn't want her to go home, but totally understands why Andy does & will do whatever he wants. Andy said to see how the week goes & if the house wants Spencer gone, then they could blindside him but he doesn't wanna do that.
Aaryn: "Did you tell Helen that Jessie's going after Amanda & McCrae?"
Andy: "Umm..no I didn't."
Aaryn: "Jessie's gonna have a breakdown. And if GM goes up (as a replacement nom), she's gonna freak the f**k out."
Andy: "She'd be so mad at me!"
They agree the current plan is good: Jessie/Spencer as noms, Jessie target, GM as a Plan B.
They both go downstairs.
Elissa/Amanda/McCrae are talking on the BY couch. They're talking about how "Judd was MVP".
Amanda says even if Jessie is against GM, that Jessie "has to go" this week, no matter what. Andy said they'll talk after the veto comp tomorrow but the plan is Spencer/Jessie, with GM as a replacement nom.
Andy lied to Amanda and told her (when asked) that Helen has not suggested that Amanda/McCrae go up. (Helen suggested it in the Andy/Helen convo earlier.)
Amanda/Andy are still talking.
Helen told me that she wnated me here longer than McCrae and now McCrae is scared that he'll go out soon. He deserves to be here more than I do."
Andy: "I think you've played brilliantly so far in this game."
Amanda said that McCrae wants to be there so bad and this "is his life". (re: BB) Amanda also said that Judd told her to "get Jessie out" when he was leaving the house last night.
They agree to talk more after the veto & both hope that Jessie doesn't win it. Andy said they should keep lying to Jessie and make her feel safe all week.
Same story: Jessie/Spencer as noms. Jessie as target. Hope she doesn't win veto. GM would be replacement nom. Andy wants to make zero enemies this week.
GM/Aaryn have been making up a dance routine & practicing.
