Diary Room: Adam Poch’s Player Rankings: Big Brother 17 – Week 4

We are at the 1/3 point of the game and its been an insane week inside the Big Brother house. The backdoor plan that has stalled the last 2 weeks looks like it is finally going to happen this week as all signs point to Audrey walking out the door this week.

More on her later – but first… Lets see who gets to chow down on bacon, and who would rather eat slop than the Tofu I will give them.

Shelli Poole – 5 strips of Bacon – Shelli won her 2nd HoH this season and this time did what she wanted to do. Her last HoH she made some enemies by getting out Da’Vonne and that still may come back to haunt her later. But this week by doing everyone’s dirty work and putting Audrey on the block she has pretty much guaranteed her safety for next week (maybe). She came off as convincing in the house meeting even though she was lying through her teeth. As a fan – that’s what we want to see!

Vanessa Rousso – 4 strips of Bacon – last week she was the Tofurkey of the Week – and this week I am giving her the 2nd highest rating? While she has done some damage to her credibility inside her alliance – she did win the Veto & use it to get Shelli to put Audrey up. Perhaps she learned that she could have saved the house a week of agony if she put her emotions aside last week. The “other side” of the house are still looking at possibly breaking up Shelli & Clay / Austin & Twins – so she is not on their radar. Plus she has that side alliance with Steve that could be very dangerous as the numbers inside the house go down.

Steve Moses – 3 strips of Bacon – even though he did a HORRIBLE job throwing the HoH this week – he was never in jeopardy of going home. People still either over or under estimate him – but he is doing a great job collecting information from observing everyone. His quirkiness is still there – but he seems to have it under control and using it to his advantage. I would love to see him accidentally win an HoH to see if he has a meltdown or if the cool, calm, collected Stefan steps up.

Jackie Ibarra – 2 strips of Bacon – last week I gave Jackie some bacon because I wanted her to have some energy and start playing the game. Well, it looks like it worked as she is starting to come out of her shell and is actually talking game to people. She has the potential to be a strong competitor and with Jeff gone, she will have to rely on herself only to get further. Look out – I think she will come alive in the next few weeks and she will be the one who tries to take out the bigger players on the other side of the house.

James Huling – 2 strips of Bacon – James kept his cool after being nominated, and during the Battle of the Block never freaked out despite being so far behind. He proved that you never give up in any competition as him & Jackie came back to win and keep themselves safe this week.

Liz Nolan / Julia – 1 strip of Bacon – at this point in the game, everyone knows about the twin twist in the house, yet she still denies it. They have such a huge target on themselves – but have surrounded themselves with people willing to keep them safe. If they can make it through this week – the rest of the Houseguests will be kicking themselves later when they now have to get 2 people out instead of one.
