big brother 15 cast 'Big Brother 15': Week 4 power rankingsThere are three weeks down in the “Big Brother 15”
house, with three strong male competitors our the door. We’re going to
break down the houseguests every week for you, but sign up for the live feeds if you’d like to watch all the craziness for yourself.

Zap2it’s Power Rankings
caveat — these rankings are based solely on game play, not any remarks players have been making in the house.

1. Judd (last week 4)

No, we aren’t always going to pick the new HOH as the no. 1, but in this case, it’s apropos. Judd is playing a dynamite social game — everybody likes him (except maybe GinaMarie, but she’s a crazy person) and, like Helen last week, we would bet money that even after his HOH, nobody will targeting him. That’s power right there.

2. Helen (last week 1)

Predictably, Helen evicted one of the biggest gamers in the house and still no one has her on their radar. They might have her on their radar for farther down the road, but the houseguests think there are bigger fish to fry right now, despite the fact that Helen is nice, smart, pretty, works out all the time and has done well in some competitions.

3. Andy (last week 5)

Andy and Judd are one half of the Goof Troop, a new alliance with them and McCranda. It’s a solid foursome, plus Andy is very well-liked in the house. He’s also kind of aligned with Hel-El (or they at least majorly trust him), so he’s in a good spot.

4. McCranda (last week 8 and 7, respectively)

Their alliance is in power, they have each other in a very solid relationship (maybe more than just a showmance) and they aren’t being targeted while Howard, Aaryn and Kaitlin remain in the house. Now, should power shift, Amanda’s going to have to watch out. She’s not as likable as McCrae and is seem as a huge threat, but for now, they have a lot of power without having to do much dirty work.

6. Jessie (last week 10)

This girl is steadily climbing the ranks — why? Because she finally figured out the Mean Girls aren’t the alliance she wants. She and Judd have become fast friends (maybe more? time will tell) and he is working hard on the Goof Troop to bring her into the fold.

7. Elissa and Candice (last week 2 and 6, respectively)

This female duo is sitting well in the house only because everybody assumes Elissa is going to get MVP again this week. That gives them a lot of power. Then Candice has both Hel-El and Howard protecting her, so until some more hamsters get booted from the house, these girls are pretty safe.

10. GinaMarie (last week 11)

You would think GinaMarie’s crazy cat lady routine would make her a target because everybody is so annoyed with her — but it’s kind of deflecting attention off of her. She doesn’t have any real power in the house, but she’s definitely in a better position than her Mean Girl cohorts or Spoward (Hencer?).

11. Spoward (last week 3 and 9, respectively)

These two have buddied up but aren’t really sitting that pretty. The Mean Girls at least partially blame them for the ousters of their men, while Hel-El doesn’t entirely trust them and McCranda wants Howard out in the worst way. They both might survive this week because Judd seems to be targeting the Mean Girls, but they won’t have any sort of power unless one of them wins the next HOH.

13. Rynlin (last week 12 and 13, respectively)

Kaitlin may have been removed from Jeremy’s side, but she is also seen as a huge threat in the house. She’s come very close to winning the last two HOHs, plus she killed that Veto comp this past week. Meanwhile, nobody really likes Aaryn (maybe not even Kaitlin) except GinaMarie, who also has very little power right now. We would expect one of the Mean Girls to leave this week and if Kaitlin doesn’t win Veto, it’ll probably be her.
