big brother 15 cast 'Big Brother 15' Week 6 power rankingsThere are five weeks down in the “Big Brother 15”
house, with Howard going home Thursday night (Aug. 1). 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.

Beware of slight spoilers below, just talking a little about the live feeds after the live eviction show ended last night.

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

1. Helen (last week 1)

Helen is still in a top-notch spot. She’s running the house (along with McCranda) and yet she seems to be on nobody’s radar.

2. McCranda (last week 6)

These two have moved up considerably because Amanda went on the block, acted like a total crazy person and still did not receive any votes to leave. Until the house wises up to the vice grip these two and Helen have on the house, they are sitting very pretty.

3. Andy (last week 3)

Andy is still in power but also
nobody sees him as a threat — plus people are
starting to get suspicious of Judd. We aren’t sure Judd is some kind of
evil super-genius, but that’s what the house is starting to think, which
can only be good for Andy’s spot in the house.

4. Aaryn (last week 4)

People are really starting to come around on Aaryn, realizing she’s all alone and she’s a pretty good competitor, so she’s a good one to snap up into an alliance. Helen was very savvy to bring the Texas tornado into the fold.

5. GinaMarie (last week 8)

She won Head of Household, so this week she moves up a few spots. She’s also well-liked, but not much of a gamer. So she’ll be around a couple more weeks, but she doesn’t seem to have what it takes to go all the way.

6. Judd (last week 2)

Judd is playing a great game, but people have started to suspect he’s much more of a gamer than they previously thought. He’s not a target this week, but Judd is going to have to be careful.

7. Elissa (last week 12)

Elissa will not be winning MVP this week, but she has really fallen off the radar (thanks Candice!) as a target to get out of the house. She should be able to float along for a couple more weeks.

8. Spencer (last week 10)

Spencer is, actually, not the target this week. That honor belongs to our last two houseguests. So if he lays low, he should be good to go for another week or two.

9. Jessie (last week 5)

Jessie has dropped like a stone in the rankings because GinaMarie (who is actually being controlled by Aaryn) is targeting her this week. She’s not the primary target, but she’s a secondary target because she’s considered a “floater,” Amanda is mad at her for considering flipping against her last week, and Aaryn wants Judd, so Jessie must be dispatched.

10. Candice (last week 9)

At this point in the week, Candice is out the door if she doesn’t win Power of Veto and take herself off. The house hates her and doesn’t want her to be on the jury, though we can’t understand why they wouldn’t want to keep a non-challenge-threat crazy person around. Maybe somebody will figure out that Candice is not anywhere close to being the person they should evict right now.
