Big Brother 17 (OAD 8/19/2015)

OK... So I at least got a little of what I was hoping for... Vanessa did, in fact, dig a deeper hole...

I was hoping she'd find herself on the block, but I really didn't have any confidence that Liz would make the big move... It'll be interesting to see if she pays for it later... Vanessa could be convinced to put Austin up on the block if she gets in power again (heck, she was willing to back door him just a few weeks ago, right?).

James continues to be hilarious... I was hoping to see him scare someone... Liz (or was it Julia) was onto him...he must have established a reputation as the house jokester...

More crying and whining from Vanessa... Wow... She's not even in danger and the tears are flowing!

Oh well...looks like "the other side" is taking a hit in their numbers tomorrow

Becky is a goner. And can someone explain Steve's issue with Becky? Oh right, he's wanted her out but did not put her up when he was HoH

I can't believe I KEEP falling for their misdirection editing LOL.

I was sure they were going to backdoor Vanessa.
Hope Johnny Mac didn't make a mistake throwing that Veto competition.

Ditto. This could be a huge mistake.

Not surprised that Liz didn't make the big move. Her logic is fine, but there have been several cases where someone put off sending a certain person home when they had the chance, and the chance never happened again.

JMac was a big BB fan, right?

Dumb! Dumb! Dumb!

If you're on the block - win the veto. Do not throw and then talk about how safe you feel.

I hope it works out. Fingers crossed and all that.

If the point of throwing the competition was to insure that the noms stay the same, why would you go out in the first round? He should have tried to stay until it was clear that one of the people who would keep the noms the same was going to win.

I think not putting Vanessa up will bite the Austwins in the butt. How does anyone think they're not a strong 3 person alliance that more than likely won't turn on each other.

Did anyone else think that the way Austin was holding Liz when they were having their "30 second" make out session was kind of creepy?

Everything about him is creepy.


I will have a slight smile on my face if JMac goes to the Jury house tonight. What an incredibly dumb move to throw a veto comp when you're on the block.


Worse case scenario is Meg or James would have gone up. Even so, nobody dislikes them as much as Austwins and Vanessa dislike Becky so she would still go.

Becky shouldn't have been so nasty to Vanessa during her reign, and she also should have done some better perception management with her opponents on the other side...

She may have gone home this week anyway...but I think it is possible to put a plan in play for Vanessa while visibly pretending to "protect" the folks on the other side of the house...

I think Liz kept Vanessa because without Vanessa, the twins or Austin/Liz would be the next major targets. Gives them at least another week.

I think it was that...and she is avoiding the social awkwardness of having to deal with a disgruntled (and emotionally unstable) alliance member on the block for a few days... Easier to explain away the decision by saying that she's such a big target, someone else will take care of getting rid of her later...

Agreed. And in a way it's risk free for the austwins. If Vanessa wins HOH, she will put John, Meg, or James instead of the austwins. They would be safe during Vanessa's HOH.

It'll be interesting to what happens if Austin or Julia win the next HOH.

Anybody besides me still not able to tell the twins apart?

They need name tags or BB should add some kind of on screen tag whenever they are shown.

This. I also look at it this way. They still have Vanessa's vote which is important for now. And for game play, if they are the final four, it's much easier to get rid of her at that point, where she'd probably understand why she was getting voted out than to do it now and risk her being a vindictive juror. And if Vanessa wins the next HoH, she will still target the other side of the house. To me, the Austiwns have a great shot at the final three if they don't screw it up. But they annoy the crap out of me. The Twins to me are as creepy as Austin. There's just something about them I don't like. Maybe it's their sinister sounding laugh.

I wouldn't want my game to depend on Vanessa not going off the deep end and deciding I'm the one who's after her.

Julia win something?

When one of them came in to vote, and Julie said, "hello Liz" I was wondering how she knew. But I suppose she knows the order.

I posted kind of the same thing above. But if Vanessa is smart, she will realize that she's the expendable member of that alliance. There's no way she'll be higher than 4th with that alliance.

So if she wins HOH, she could ally with the other side of the house and break up the austwins. That would make for great TV.

Ideally though, she'll go next week.

I don't see it. She's too emotional, and she still harps on "loyalty". The only way she changes her tune is if someone like James or JMac, explain it to her. But I don't see it happening.

For some reason, more than any other season, the red herrings are becoming more and more obvious. I didn't, for one minute, think Vanessa was going home. But they needed to fill an hour and they needed to try and put some doubt out there or it would have been incredibly boring.

At the end of the season, read the spoilers thread. We go into more detail on all the stuff that's happening. Sometimes we talk about stuff that is not aired or is only mentioned briefly.

Maybe you'll join us there next year?

I can tell them apart if I see them up close enough. If it weren't for HDTV, I would not be able to.

Don't be too sure about that. Vanessa is constantly testing the waters with all the house guests and when mutual interests come into alignment a collaboration is possible with the 'other side'. Vanessa must know even she can't win unless the Austwins start being broken up. Ideally she needs someone on the other side to do it, but if push comes to shove.....
