Sunday started out quiet in the Big Brother house as Shelli worked her way through guarding the BB17 castle, but once that wrapped up we were back to our drama of the week.

Shelli and Clay worked overnight on their Operation Backdoor Steve but it’d take a lot of convincing to get James to change his target at this stage.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Sunday, August 2, 2015:

8:20 AM BBT – Shelli has been doing her Castle Guard work all night. She hits the 1600 sword battles mark. 800 more to go.

10:00 AM BBT – HGs got their wake up call while Shelli and Clay sleep outside. She’s exhausted, but a long way to go.

1:00 PM BBT – It’s slow around the house as Shelli continues her sword battles and reaches 1900.

1:15 PM BBT – Clay and Shelli talking game. Clay doesn’t think he’d do Big Brother again. He’s worried about his opportunities outside the house and if leaving now will impact that.

2:45 PM BBT – Meg and James catching up. They think they have the votes to send out Shelli this week.

3:00 PM BBT – Liz stops by the HoH room. She warns James that Clay is asking to be voted out. James has heard this already and doesn’t seem too concerned.

3:30 PM BBT – There was a message in the sky that said “I love you. – S”. Houseguests could see it, but nearby residents reported on Twitter that it wasn’t aimed toward the house. Shelli believes it was a message to her.

5:55 PM BBT – Shelli completes her 2400 sword battles in time.

6:45 PM BBT – HGs are all quiet or sleeping (in places they shouldn’t be sleeping). Nothing going on.

7:50 PM BBT – Some movement finally going on in the house again. Shelli eating as other HGs wander about.

8:20 PM BBT – Shelli and Clay talking about they want to approach James to use the veto on one of them and targeting someone else.

9:10 PM BBT – James and John talking about why Shelli needs to be the one to go over Clay.

9:20 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Shelli and Clay there’s no reason to get their hopes up because James won’t change the nominations. She gives them some advice on how to still try to get him to change his mind.

9:35 PM BBT – Clay and Shelli want to talk to James but he doesn’t want to. Meg tells him she should at least hear them out so he doesn’t seem like a tyrant.

9:42 PM BBT – James meets Shelli and Clay in the HOH room. They tell James they just want to get to jury and that they will offer themselves up next week (sounds like the same plan Austin made last week and didn’t stick to). Then they say they could ditch the others and be loyal to James and Meg.

10:35 PM BBT Clay mentions putting Steve up. And finally Shelli mentions targeting Vanessa over them.

11:00 PM BBT – James is considering their offers. They tell him they will be loyal to him. But he remains guarded. They won’t tell James who has been targeting him.

11:05 PM BBT – James tells them he will take some time to think about. The talk breaks up and they leave the HOH room.

11:07 PM BBT – James and Meg agree they should stick to the plan. Now they’re talking about why Shelli and Clay didn’t even mention Becky as an option. They’re now suspicious of Becky.

11:33 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Clay and Shelli she’s sorry but she’s gotten them no where. She says she’s useless this week (Vanessa is just afraid of going up).

11:40 PM BBT – Austin and the twins are talking to James now. They ask him if anyone else should be going up on the block. They all think the nominations should stay the same. None of them are ready to sell anyone else out.

11:56 PM BBT – Shelli is getting upset again. She still claiming innocence in Jason’s eviction and says she’s going to go home for something she didn’t do.

12:05 AM BBT – Shelli is mad that Austin is up in the HOH room. She says they saved him last week and now he is selling them out.

12:30 AM BBT – Julia upstairs with Liz, Austin, James, and Meg. Julia says Shelli was harassing her over not getting any backup and support. Says she doesn’t want to talk to Shelli anymore and that makes it easier to vote her out.

12:45 AM BBT – Vanessa checks in with HoH to see if they’re going to renom a floater. James says it’s not likely.

12:55 AM BBT – James tells Steve that people are pushing for Steve to go up as a BD, but he’ll make a safety trade deal and not do it.

1:55 AM BBT – Shelli & Clay talking with Meg. She says Austwins were fine with noms staying as they are. Shelli asks if they formed a new alliance. Meg says no.

3:10 AM BBT – Clay and Shelli tell Austin they know he’s not campaigning for them like they did last week.

3:20 AM BBT – Austin tells James that Clay and Shelli would lay down their games next week if James would take out a floater this week and let them get to Jury.

3:45 AM BBT – Becky warns Clay that Shelli will be a bigger target if she stays. She’s encouraging Clay not to give up.

3:55 AM BBT – James, Austin, and Meg discussing Chelli’s deal. James suggests he’s not convinced and will not use the Veto. Meg thinks the deal from Chelli sounds dirty.

4:15 AM BBT – James suspects Clay, Shelli, Vanessa, Austin, & Liz had an alliance but once they lost power everyone in it scrambled.

4:30 AM BBT – Meg tells Chelli that if they give him all the info they keep hinting at then maybe he’ll be able to change his mind.

Shelli and Clay are working hard to find a way to stay, but James is very doubtful about letting that happen. The night isn’t over yet though so we’ll keep watching to see what happens with that Veto.
