Once Da’Vonne discovered the Twin Twist and recognized the differences between Julia and Liz yesterday afternoon she quickly this information to Jason. After further debate and consideration Jason decided to take this information to way too many Houseguests. Oh well. At least this will be fun!

At this point the only Houseguests who weren’t part of this overnight, wide revelation are Audrey, Austin, Becky, John, and Vanessa. Everyone else, besides Liz/Julia of course, spent part of the night gathered around. Flashback to 4:05 AM BBT to watch this play out. Don’t have the Live Feeds yet?

Now the question is how to smoke out the twins and get the confirmation they need. The Houseguests have lots of ideas and this should be fun to watch play out on the Feeds.

They plan to look for physical characteristics like facial structure and overall size. Eye colors, hair color in their roots, and any other body marks they can identify. There are plans to hold in-depth conversations with her to the point that she won’t have time to relay all the details. It’s going to be an information overload.

At 5:19AM BBT Da’Vonne jokes she’s about to be her new best friend. They’re going to be sticking to Liz/Julia as closely as they can to observe any time she walks in or out of the Diary Room since they know that’s the most likely swap point.

Perhaps their best plan is to hold another of their backyard talk show podcasts. They’ll set up enough unique details and then continue to quiz her on it after they suspect a switch has happened. Da’Vonne tried this earlier by asking Liz/Julia about her character the night before, but Jackie ruined it by answering the question first. Thanks, Jackie. You finally get involved and that’s what you do. Smh.

Something to keep in mind is that as far as it’s been explained to us by Julie Chen (see the video below), uncovering the Twin Twist isn’t enough to end it. The Houseguests will have to evict Liz by the 5th eviction or she’s going to play with her twin side by side. Had Da’Vonne uncovered this a few hours sooner she might be in a better position right now.

Update: Things started out quietly for the most part, but Steve went for it and started quizzing Liz/Julia. Flashback to 12:35PM BBT to find Steve asking her all sorts of questions. Part of the plan was to ask what was the final name of their inflatable giraffe. Liz couldn’t answer but Audrey finally jumped in and answered.

Steve continued to ask about more personal topics. This should be fun to watch unravel.
