The Big Brother 17 Jury will come together on Wednesday night for the season finale where they’ll cast their vote to help decide which remaining Houseguest will walk away with the half-million dollar prize. Predicting which way it’ll go might be more difficult than it seems.
We’ve looked at the F2 match-ups and there appear to just be two potential cases and while one of them seems clear cut for deciding a winner the other could end up surprising some of us.
If Vanessa wins round three of the Final HoH on Wednesday night then she’s cutting Steve. If she moves on to the F2 with Liz then it’s an easy win for Vanessa. Really though I doubt it’d be a hard win for her against Steve either though.
In a Liz and Vanessa match-up I think Vanessa could take it 7-2 with Julia and Austin being the hold outs. No one expects the Austwins to vote against one another. That just won’t happen. And while we’ve heard comments from James and Meg in the house that they’d never vote for Vanessa, they may not have considered their options.
Vanessa and Liz are coming from the same alliance so it’s not like the Jury gets to pick one side or the other here. If they didn’t like the Scamper Squad group then they’re picking between two unpleasant choices for them. It’s certainly possible that Jurors may feel too burned by Vanessa’s methods to vote for her and that’d be a testament to her fight-then-evict, etc. methods. But with a guide to their Jury round table, they may be able to overcome those frustrations before the big vote.
For Liz to win against Vanessa she’d have to flip three more votes. John and Becky had agreed inside the house that if Vanessa got to F2 they’d vote for her and I think they will. That leaves Jackie, Meg, and James for a possible flip. Maybe. Maybe they would since they certainly didn’t align with Vanessa, but it seems like a long shot for all three of them to do it together. Also keep in mind that James told us he’d like to see Vanessa and John at F2.
As for Steve, he won’t vote bitter. If Vanessa gets the chance to send him out to Jury then he’ll respect her game move and Vanessa will get his vote.
If the F2 ends up Vanessa and Liz then Vanessa wins the $500,000 and deservedly so. Now on to the other match-up.
