The Area 51 Alliance (or The House Alliance) was an alliance in Big Brother 15. It was formed in Week 1 to counter the The Blonde-Tourage The alliance is also known for it's strict loyalty of it's members, should one member of the alliance tries to switch the eviction plan or conspire against other members, that person will be immediately targeted.
In Week 1, Amanda Zuckerman pitched the idea to McCrae Olson in keeping Elissa Slater in the house in order to control the MVP nominee. McCrae agreed to the idea and told his then alliance The Moving Company about the plan and agreed to it. Amanda recruited then outsiders Andy Herren, Helen Kim and Judd Daugherty in order to gain the majority of the house. Moving Company members Spencer Clawson and Howard Overby joined in on the plan and The Blonde-Tourage was blindsided with David Girton being evicted with 7-5-0 Vote.
The Dramatic Flip
Aaryn Gries later won the following Head of Household competiton, out for revenge she targeted Elissa and put Elissa alongside her closest ally Helen. Elissa later won her second MVP in a row and discussed with Helen on who should she put up as the MVP nom. It was later revealed that Jeremy was the MVP nominee, but Jeremy later won the POV. Elissa was contemplaining on putting Kaitlin Barnaby up as the replacement MVP nominee, but Candice Stewart wanted her to put up Nick Uhas in the idea that there was a boys-alliance running the house. Elissa was hesitant at first but later agreed when Nick didn't gave Elissa a straight answer when she asked if she would put up Kaitlin he would keep her safe, this led Elissa to believe Nick wouldn't keep her safe so she decided to put her as the MVP replacement nominee. This would have been the final nail in Elissa's coffin, however thanks to Amanda and Helen's strong campaigning, Elissa and Judd getting Jessie Kowalski to defect from The Blonde-Tourage, and McCrae's contention with The Moving Company's desire to target Amanda, the majority of the votes shifted to Nick. Hours before the eviction, Helen spilled the beans to Spencer that they had the votes to evict Nick, which led Howard and Spencer to defect from The Moving Company. The Blonde-Tourage was once again blindsided with Nick being voted out by 7-4-0 Vote.
Rise to Power
Helen later won the following Head of Household, which put the Area 51 Alliance in control. The aftermath of Nick's eviction led to numerous confrontations and arguements, especially when Aaryn flipped Candice's matress which made Aaryn the main target. McCrae quickly came clean about the Moving Company Alliance, while Spencer and Howard took a while to reveal the truth which caused the Area 51 Alliance to turn against the two of them. Helen later nominated Aaryn and Kaitlin for eviction with the intent of backdoring Jeremy McGuire. Elissa won her third MVP in a row, Amanda campaigned for Elissa to put up Howard as the MVP nominee, but Elissa stated the she couldn't put up Howard and instead put up Spencer. This caused tension between the alliance which led Amanda, Andy, Judd and McCrae to form an alliance called The Goof Troupe which later expanded to create a sub-alliance called The Knockouts which consisted the four members of The Goof Troupe and Helen and Elissa. Kaitlin later won the POV, and was pressured by members of the alliance to use it on herself in hopes of backdooring Jeremy. Kaitlin decided to use the POV on herself and Jeremy was named as the replacement nominee. Jeremy was successfully backdoored by a 9-1-0 Vote.
Judd went on to win the following Head of Household, and was pressured by Amanda to put up Howard. But Judd in fear of an all girls-alliance nominated Aaryn and Kaitlin up on the block. Spencer and Howard with the idea of Amanda, Elissa, Helen and McCrae were running the house, formed an alliance with GinaMarie Zimmerman, Kaitlin and Judd with the goal of overthrowing the four whom they thought were running the house (Young Grasshoppers).Elissa was later nominated by the MVP (America) which caused confusion among the houseguests on who the MVP is. Elissa later won the POV and used it on herself and GinaMarie was named the replacement. Judd later betrayed the Young Grasshoppers Alliance by spreading a rumor that Kaitlin wanted Helen out, when the rumors spread to Helen, Aaryn and Helen made a deal that Aaryn would either throw the next Head of Household competition or let Helen choose her nominations in exchange of evicting Kaitlin instead. Elissa upset with the plan to keep Aaryn, told Kaitlin that she may be going home, this later erupted into a confrontation between Elissa and several houseguests which led some of Elissa's allies to lose trust in her. Kaitlin was evicted by a unanimous vote of 9-0-0.

This resulted into most of the alliance turning on Judd and The Goof Troupe later replaced Judd with Aaryn. Jessie began stirring the pot and suggested to Aaryn and GinaMarie to evict Candice instead of Howard. However Candice told Helen that she thinks they will split the vote and get Aaryn to evict her.
