Veto Day was an important one in the Big Brother 17 as the targeted pair had just one chance to break up the plans for eviction night and save themselves.

Just as the HGs were expecting the comp involved the prize swap and resulted in some fun punishments including a tough challenge of 2400 sword fights with a bigger penalty attached.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Saturday, August 1, 2015:

8:15 AM BBT – HGs get an early wake up call and are starting their day.

10:30 AM BBT – Veto players were picked. Vanessa, Becky, and Jackie

11:00 AM BBT – Fallout from the players pick has Austin confused as James had said he’d pick him but chose Jackie instead. Vanessa using this as an opportunity to show that Austin shouldn’t trust James.

12:15 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Becky how hard last week was for her. Becky reminds Vanessa she was on the Block.

12:40 PM BBT – Vanessa is very concerned about getting BD’d. She asks the twins and Austin to promise to vote to keep her if she gets renom’d. They agree.

12:55 PM BBT – Vanessa asking the twins who they want to keep. They agree on Shelli. Vanessa says if the three of them plus Austin plus Steve vote to keep Shelli then they’re good.

1:00 PM BBT – Target plans for Vanessa, Austin, and twins next week: Jackie with Meg then use James as the renom if needed.

4:03 PM BBT – Feeds return. Shelli and Clay look downtrodden. Neither won the Veto. James holds that honor along with all the power to decide this week’s final noms.

4:20 PM BBT – Clay is pleading with Vanessa to keep Shelli over him. This is exactly what she wanted.

4:35 PM BBT – Vanessa letting Shelli know that Clay has been going around the house asking to be voted out instead of Shelli.

4:50 PM BBT – Clay and Shelli are much calmer today. Clay tells James that there are no hard feelings and it’s just a game.

5:45 PM BBT – Twins trying to decide who to vote out. They know Clay would be easier to beat in comps based on his track record, but they think Shelli would be more determined to go after the other side.

6:40 PM BBT – Becky agrees to vote Clay out, but says he can’t tell anyone since she knows James wants Shelli out.

7:15 PM BBT – Clay asking Meg to vote him out but she won’t make that promise. She says it’s tough love and he should play.

8:50 PM BBT – Knight Jackie and Squire Vanessa have emerged from the DR. Jackie has to wear the costume for a week. Vanessa just has to follow her around for 24 hours while shining her armor.

9:40 PM BBT – Shelli emerges with her punishment. She is the “Castle Guard” and must complete 2400 sword fights in 24 hours. In the backyard Shelli is starting out her punishment. She has to hit a series of three targets each round and do it 2400 times. If she doesn’t then she can’t compete in next week’s Veto comp.

10:53 PM BBT – Clay has a plan to get Steve up as the renom. He talks to Julia about it. They don’t think James will use the Veto. Clay asks them to vote him out.

11:00 PM BBT – Julia says she wants Clay to say. Austin suggests they just wait and see what happens when the dust settles.

11:10 PM BBT – Shelli is already at 300 out of 2400 rounds.

12:20 AM BBT – Vanessa putting together a bed to sleep on the floor per her punishment.

1:50 AM BBT – Spin the bottle is going on courtesy of the Feedsters vote.

2:00 AM BBT – And the game is over.

3:10 AM BBT – Shelli reached 1000 rounds. She’s keeping a strong pace.

4:00 AM BBT – Clay told Liz about the renom Steve plan of his. Clay wants them to back up the story he’s going to tell James. Liz telling Austin. Austin does not think this plan will work.

4:20 AM BBT – Shell is at 1200 rounds, the halfway point.

4:40 AM BBT – Twins talking about voting out Clay instead of Shelli. They’re worried about voting against what James said he wanted since they made a deal.

4:50 AM BBT – Shelli and Clay awake and outside. Shelli has to sleep there until she’s done.

The votes are there to send Clay home if everyone decides they want to follow Vanessa’s instructions, but I’m curious to see what Austin does since he seems almost resistant to the idea of keeping Shelli over Clay. Might not be a bad choice for him.
