Spoilers ahead! Warning: Big Brother 15 Week 10 HoH and POV win spoilers referenced.
The house is about to fall on Amanda Zuckerman. Even her #1 flying monkey has fled the scene.
On Big Brother 15 Week 10, the most unlikely hero emerged to save us all from the dreaded showmance “McCranda” — GinaMarie Zimmerman. Nick’s future restraining order recipient not only won Head of Household and put up both Amanda and McCrae Olson, she managed to blindside them with the nominations. McCrae was the original target, but he just won Power of Veto on Saturday, August 31.
Even before McCrae won POV, Amanda was assuming she was the target and told him she wanted him to keep going and win. On the live feeds, McCrae was saying if Amanda had won POV, he was going to ask her to give it to him, since they seem to think he has the better shot at winning. It does seem like he may have been holding back until this point, letting Amanda be the bad cop while he preserved his strength. He was the one who won the season’s first HoH and POV, then held back … until now.
So it’s looking like Amanda will be the first boot of this week’s double eviction. However, if Amanda magically finds a way to stay safe from either eviction, we may have to believethose rumors about the show being rigged in her favor. How insufferable would it be if McCranda both managed to stay until Week 11? If the Big Brother Powers That Be really love the showmance drama, they could pull some weird punches with this week’s twists to try and keep the couple around. Would you stop watching, if that happened?
