A House, Emptied

In the end, there was little real doubt.

After a season where people’s mouths kept getting them in trouble, it was Andy’s ability to clearly get across his game moves and strategies that sealed the deal and earned him the grand prize of $500,000. After playing one of the best social games seen in Big Brother, Andy managed to win when needed once more to earn the final HoH and evict his partner in the game, Spencer. With a Day One promise to GinaMarie that she never denied, Andy also managed to prove a loyalty that showed doubters that he could be faithful to a promise.

The Endgame Gambit

Making it to Endgame in Big Brother is a remarkable feat, no matter how you get there. The Final Three players are usually entirely in control of the final pairing, and save for some remarkably questionable choices the folks that make it to Endgame can make some sort of case for being there.

Ebb and Flow

In the last few weeks, the power struggle of the house has been made apparent between Helen and Amanda.

Fittingly, it was the person whose overconfidence finally bit her where it hurt.

Andy Wins Veto – Doesn’t Use It

So, Andy proved this week he can win a couple competitions, taking the Veto this week home to his HOH room. With Spencer and Jessie being his nominees the chance for making a big move in the game was at his fingertips, but as you’d expect, he played it safe. This season in the Big Brother house the theme seems to be “Don’t rock the boat, baby” and Andy, being Andy, decided to ‘go with what the house wants’ to not upset the balance (Amanda).

Having played ‘both’ sides of the house (Helen and/or Amanda) since the beginning, he has kept both thinking he’s working for them. His true loyalty was tested while he was in power, Helen brought forth a potential plan to backdoor Amanda – he squashed it immediately; it couldn’t happen without him, of course. It also showed that at this point in the game he considers Amanda his stronger ally.
