Big Brother 17: Counting The Votes In Week 8 [POLL]

We’ve jumped ahead in Big Brother 17 eviction votes this week after last Thursday’s Double Eviction knocked out two players leaving us with just six votes making this round’s big decision of who will be the next to Jury.

It seems like quite the curse to be promised security and safety when going up on the Block and Becky Burgess looks ready to keep that streak alive this week.

After her initial convincing argument to the Austwins on Thursday night it looked like Becky was sure to stay after she pulled back the curtain on Vanessa’s ways, but she was soon to be outdone. Johnny Mac’s similar conversation on Friday night with the Austwins seems to have topped Becky and he’s currently the favorite to stay.

Six votes will be split up between Austin, James, Julia, Meg, Steve, and Vanessa. There is a chance of a tie-breaker as well, but it seems unlikely to come to that as the former Sixth Sense alliance, recently renamed Scamper Squad I guess, will control the decision. Yes, just as we pointed out the danger in keeping Vanessa and her controlling majority it won’t really matter what Meg and James want to do.

Austin, Julia, Steve, and Vanessa are all on board to keep John. Vanessa said she’d promise John her vote in exchange for safety next week, but we know that won’t really be a serious deal if he accepts. Austin and Julia want to keep John as their new mongoose to go after Vanessa. Steve is running a little side semi-serious partnership with John so he’ll keep him too.

James and Meg should be making a similar decision to keep John, but as I mentioned, it wouldn’t matter if they wanted to vote to keep Becky. They’re just along for the ride at this point.

On Thursday I’m expecting the HGs to head inside the Diary Room and cast a unanimous vote of 6-0 with Becky evicted and sent to Jury. Do you see it working out differently?
