We’re just two days away from crowning the winner of Big Brother 17, but how will the Final 2 turn out? We’ve got two main scenarios with these three last Houseguests of the season.
The first two rounds of the Final HoH are now complete revealing who will face off on Wednesday’s season finale giving us enough information to start reviewing the most likely match-ups and how those could turn out.
Following our spoilers from the Feeds we know Vanessa won the first round and Steve won the second round. Had Liz beat out Steve in the second round then this would have been a very short discussion. Vanessa had been hoping to sit next to Liz at the end but now that’s not a guarantee though they still have a good chance of pulling it off. Unlike last year, we will have some real suspense on Wednesday night.
Vanessa definitely wants to take Liz to the end with her. If she wins round three then we will see Vanessa vote to evict Steve. Earlier today Vanessa explained to Liz that Steve had betrayed Vanessa by trying to replace her in the Scamper Squad with a JMac replacement. Vanessa says that’s her always necessary “reason!” to send him out the door. She says she “really, really” wants to win that third round because she has a big speech to give about cutting Steve. Who know who else is planning for a big speech that night?
On the other side of the round three competition, should Steve pull off the win then he also plans to take Liz. Over the past few nights we’ve heard Steve practice a long speech about evicting Vanessa and how she’s the Derrick of their partnership. It’s really more than he should be saying and maybe production will tell him he doesn’t have that much time to cast his vote, but right now he’s still preparing for it.
I can’t be sure, but Vanessa does seem to believe Steve may be planning to take her (Vanessa) to the F2 if he wins R3. Vanessa told Liz she’s forced to make a fake deal with Steve to make sure she gets to the end whether or not she wins, but if she does win then Liz is going with her. Even if Vanessa believes Steve is taking her, I do not for a moment think she is willing to throw R3 to make sure she doesn’t have cut Liz since she should believe she can beat either Liz or Steve in F2. Round 3 will be a tense showdown.
That gives us either a Vanessa & Liz or a Steve & Liz Final 2. I really don’t see either Vanessa or Steve changing their minds and taking the other so a F2 of them facing the Jury is very unlikely. Kinda crazy to think nearly 100 days worth of work and a half million dollars can all come down to a series of silly questions and answers from the Jury. Vanessa thinks she has the edge with her background in behavioral studies, but as Derrick noted, this competition is “basically a guessing game.”
Who do you think is more likely to win the last round of the Final HoH competition? Does either player have an edge or will it come down to guesses and luck? Share your thoughts and get ready for Wednesday’s Big Brother 17 finale at 9:30 PM ET/PT.
