During a late night talk last night between the noms we heard Becky admit her big mistake in openly targeting Vanessa and John reveals some serious misconceptions that could soon sink his game.

Flashback on your Live Feeds to 12:36 AM BBT 8/19 Cams 1/2 as Becky and John sit alone outside on the couches. They’re running through the current alliances, who they could work with, and best hopes for the upcoming returning Juror.

Of course Becky hopes she’ll be the one to come back, but John says he just wants to make sure it’s not Shelli. Becky says if Shelli comes back that’d actually be easy on everyone since she’d be an easy out the next round. John says either Becky or Jackie would be more likely to work with him and Steve.

John worries that if he and Steve team up with James and Meg then they’d be the two stronger players and stand out as the targets while Steve and John teaming up with the Austwins might give them a better chance at survival.

Now as for Steve, John is not reading things well. He tells Becky that Steve and him are the loners in the game right now suggesting they have limited connections. John thinks he’s broken Steve’s link to Vanessa and has suggested that Steve isn’t with Austin and the twins. Yikes.

Over the past few days we’ve watched as Steve continues to push both John and the Austwins on the idea of keeping Vanessa. Steve thinks he’s in tight with Vanessa even after he was told how angry Vanessa was at him about initially denying her his vote. It’s an interesting situation to see John think he’s with Steve while Steve thinks he’s with Vanessa.
