Diary Room: Adam Poch’s Player Rankings: Big Brother 17 – Week 9| August 26, 2015 at 9:00 AM EDT
It’s Day 70 inside the Big Brother House – and this season’s 2 biggest superfans Johnny Mac & Steve are on the block. Unless some unknown never been seen before super power gets unleashed on the house in the next 36 hours – one of them will be walking out the door.
However, with the Jury Revival comp waiting for us this Thursday – they could walk right back in the door. BUT FIRST… lets take a look at the week that was – and see who deserves porky treats – and who deserves some inferior soy based disgusting stuff!
Vanessa Rousso – 5 strips of Bacon – I am still not 100% convinced that Vanessa’s fortune in the house is all strategic on her part, but hey, it’s working. She has been public enemy number one for a few weeks now, and came up big this week winning the Veto to ensure her safety. When she found out she was in fact the backdoor target by all of the house – she did what she does best, call people out and demand to get the answers (with some tears mixed in here & there). I still think the rest of the house will be kicking themselves when they could have gotten her out 3 weeks ago.
James Huling – 4 strips of Bacon – somehow James has kept himself safe the last few weeks despite being the only player willing to make big moves. He keeps the rest of the HGs entertained and quietly is playing a solid game. He has told Meg that if he wins HoH he will have no problem putting Austin & Liz on the block. That’s a good gamer right there – and if that happens and he can get himself to the end of the game, that is a huge talking point when addressing the jury, breaking up both Showmances this season.
Liz Nolan – 2 strips of Bacon – Liz has herself protected by 2 solid alliance members, her twin sister Julia & her boyfriend Austin. Liz does a great job making decisions after talking them over (and over and over) with them and seems like she is less of a threat than Austin. Despite her being in on the plan to back door Vanessa, nothing is coming back on her like it is the rest of the house (minus Julia).
Johnny Mac – 1 strip of Bacon / 1 strip of Tofu – I have given some players both Tofu & Bacon in the same week before. For Johnny, he earns Bacon for trying to do some last minute scrambling and willing to throw anyone/everyone under the bus. He earns Tofu because he is just sealing his own fate in doing this. I’ll be sad if he leaves, but lets face it – other than a few well timed Veto wins, his game never quite lived up to it’s potential.
Julia Nolan – 2 strips of Tofu – I still do not see much of a player in Julia. Yes, she was hindered by the fact that she was the “other twin” – and not really in the mix early on. She has yet to win anything to prove her worth to the alliance, but the rest fear her as part of the Austwins alliance.
