Season 15 of CBS’s hit reality show Big Brother is heating up to be one of the must-watch shows of the summer. This year they opted for all-new houseguests — even though Rachel Reilly’s sister Elissa is in the house. We’ve seen our fair share of controversial remarks, epic showmances, and superb strategizing already. Each Thursday one houseguest heads home — except for the dreaded double eviction weeks — and we’ve got your recaps of who went home each week right here!
This was an intense week of gameplay for the houseguests. Aaryn was HOH and she went after one of the biggest power duos in the house: Elissa and Helen. Lucky enough for Elissa, she ended up winning the Power of Veto and took herself off the block, leaving her best friend behind. In a desperate attempt to save herself, Helen attempted to convince Aaryn to put up Amanda against her to break up her showmance with McCrae. But with Aaryn being a part of the 3AM alliance (Aaryn, Amanda, Andy, and McCrae), she opted to do what Amanda wanted and put up Spencer (for like the millionth time).
After attempting to convince the house to keep her, Helen was ultimately eliminated, with only Elissa voting to keep her around. Julie Chen revealed to Helen that she had a chance to get back into the house, by competing against the other jury members (Judd, Candice, and Jessie) later in the show. That challenge, which involved the houseguests catching balls while standing on a mobile platform, was later dominated by Elissa, who won HOH, and Judd was the first of the jury members to secure his spot back in the house. With Elissa friendless this week and the 3AM alliance still dominating everyone, it will be interesting to see who she goes after as HOH.
