After gaining an extra Houseguest this week there’s again no chance of a tie-breaker so that means James Huling’s role is over and will be sitting back to watch how it all turns out. It’s almost time to see if he gets his wish or if the house goes against him.
First we saw Jackie and Meg lock down there votes against Shelli while Vanessa was set on keeping her. What about the Austwins? After starting on Vanessa’s side of the vote plan they actually started to shift around before agreeing overnight to vote out Clay.
Then we’ve got middle ground players like John, Becky, and Steve who could decide the whole thing if they wanted to get more control in the game. Becky is definitely voting against Shelli and I think John might be doing that too. Steve? I thought he’d never go against Vanessa’s wishes but in a late night rant he expressed anger at Clay for lying to him and then lied to Shelli. Steve could be the big swing!
If Vanessa can pull off keeping Shelli then this will be awesome for her game. I do think Vanessa can work with either Clay or Shelli, but obviously Shelli is a stronger player and a more reliable ally for Vanessa. They’ll be a powerhouse together.
Of course that’s an excellent reason for everyone else to fear keeping Shelli. Clay could be a strong player, but so far he’s been outclassed by Shelli. He’d have the advantage of running the middle of the house a lot better and I think he’d be less of a target if he stayed. More options for him and for the other HGs with Clay around over Shelli.
So what’s going to happen? It’s still being debated! It’s crazy. Crazy awesome. Austin said he’d tell James around 3PM BBT which is just a few hours before the show, but it might not come down to the Austwins if Steve shocks the house with a hinky vote that keeps Clay.
I’m going to base my prediction on Steve going with a surprise move that will better position him by moving him up the totem pole with Vanessa even if that means he secretly went against her wishes. It’d be a huge move if he does so we’ll see. And yes, I’ll admit it’s a long shot.
I can not wait to see what happens at tonight’s live eviction show. Join us for it!
Update: Feeds returned ahead of tonight’s show and everyone is scrambling. LOTS of game talk and the pressure is building to evict Clay. James, Meg, and Jackie learning from Austin how the votes are mounting to keep Shelli.
Austin promises the plan remains to immediately evict the remaining half of Chelli. Jackie points out that Vanessa is fighting to keep Shelli this week but will suddenly be willing to put her up in the next immediate round? (Exactly.)
We shall see what happens.
Update 2: WOW! Clay is probably definitely going now. Flashback to 2:19PM BBT as Vanessa questioned James in an attempt to pin things on him, but James isn’t having any of it and immediately went to test her claims. HUGE FIGHT ensues. HUGE!
Clay got up in James face & words exchanged. Vanessa shows up and starts calling out Clay but Clay says she’s lying. It’s wild. It’s crazy. You have to watch. It lasted over 30 minutes of complete chaos.
Clay is going home 100% now. Scratch all debates.
