The nature of “Big Brother” is that when the balance of power shifts in the house, hamsters often have to go from “I hate so-and-so” to kissing so-and-so’s butt. Such is the case this week with Elissa winning Head of Household.

So, Amanda and GinaMarie get into a fight that basically boils down to who is sucking up to Elissa more. From Amanda’s perspective, she’s freaking out about McCrae being on the block and now GM being all buddy-buddy with Elissa, because Amanda wanted Elissa to use GM as the replacement nominee after POV.

From GM’s perspective, she’s actually had kind of a come-to-Jesus thing with Elissa, plus GM doesn’t have much of an alliance, so she’s working on that. And Amanda is calling her out on something that is … kind of the way the game works.

Unless you’re in Season 6 and the house is divided in half and each half openly hates the other half with the fire of 1000 suns.

Either way, the fight is delightfully entertaining, though watch out for coarse language (of course). Here’s a sample excerpt:

GM: “I want to let you know that I enjoy working out with [Elissa], this is weeks before she was HOH. … Why are you starting a fight with me for? … Whatta you wanna do, Amanda? … You talk about her one minute and then you’re best friends the next.
Amanda: “That’s what you do.”
GM: “I enjoyed working out with her before she was HOH.”
Amanda: “Everybody in the entire house notices that you talk s*** about her and now you’re up her f***ing a**.”

And if you’d like to watch another fun segment, check out the Elissa/Amanda HOH conversation starting around 12:43 a.m. PT.

Keep your eyes peeled here for the POV competition results. It’s taking place as of about 10 a.m. PT. Or just sign up for the live feeds, because they’ve been pretty awesome since Thursday night.
