The game was on the line for Aaryn, Jeremy and Spencer as "Big Brother" sent its third houseguest packing. Would Helen and her alliance complete their backdoor strategy to eliminate the physical powerhouse, Jeremy? Aaryn, who's been controversial since Day One with her racial comments and general "mean girl" attitude, suddenly seemed safe.
When the final votes came in, she didn't get a single one. Jeremy's showmance, Kaitlin, voted to eliminate Spencer. Every other vote was to get rid of Jeremy. To his credit, the same guy who was parading around the house with arrogant cockiness a week ago left the house with grace and humility -- well, some humility.
While Jeremy was trying to convince everyone he was a nice guy and willing to work with anyone, Aaryn was doing some damage control of her own. She was being nice to everyone, and even apologized to some of the people she may have offended along the way. Was it genuine?
“You’ve been doing really good the past few days," Judd told her in the bathroom one day.
“You know it’s hard for me to, like, act the way I’ve been acting. And, like, being, like, nice to everyone," Aaryn said in response. "And I think I deserve to be acknowledged for that.” So ... not sincere at all.
Entertainment Weekly thought it was pretty funny that Aaryn thought she deserved recognition and kudos for being a decent human being. Clearly, she doesn't think this is how people normally behave. Buddy TV thinks most people can see right through her, though, and predicts that she'll be gone next week, now that Judd is the new HOH.
Judd hasn't been so strongly aligned with anyone, though, so his nominations could be more unpredictable. For all of her terrible behavior, is she a real threat at this point? Find out who he picks as "Big Brother" continues, Sundays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET and Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on CBS.
