There was a little game talk and a lot of making out in the Big Brother 17 house Tuesday as it’s still anyone’s guess whether or not Shelli and Clay will be going home this week.
One thing is for sure, though: the biggest showmance of the season have thrown all of their own rules out and are making the best of their final days together, as you can see above.
Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Tuesday, August 4, 2015:
10:10 AM BBT – Feeds return from wake-up call. Steve is talking with Vanessa & updating her on late night discussions with Shelli & Clay. Steve wants to form a 4-HG alliance, but Vanessa discourages and says it won’t work. She also discourages him from talking with either Shelli or Clay. (Isolate. Isolate. Isolate.)
10:20 AM BBT – Vanessa suggests that Clay and JMac are related. Steve doesn’t seem to agree. (Clay & JMac also happen to be two of Vanessa’s targets.)
10:30 AM BBT – Most HGs are now back in bed.
11:33 AM BBT – James got his HOH camera, but Austin seems to be the only other HG awake. House is quiet.
11:35 AM BBT – James taking pictures of sleeping houseguests.
12:40 PM BBT – James is able to get in a group shot before he’s called to return the camera back to the Diary Room.
1:43 PM BBT – Vanessa and Shelli are discussing that Clay thinks he’s staying 100 percent. Shelli is upset that he seems to think she should just lay down and die.
2:15 PM BBT – Things are awkward and tense between Shelli and Clay.
2:32 PM BBT – Indoor lockdown has been called.
2:37 PM BBT – John and Becky talking about how they only trust each other. They know they can’t trust Clay or Shelli because their true colors have come out the past week. They know that whoever survives this eviction is with Vanessa, Austin and the twins. Becky says she’s realized she needs to work with Meg, Jackie and James. Becky and John agree that they’ve done a lot for that other side and haven’t gotten anything back from them. Becky says she’s not going to directly target Vanessa’s group but she knows she can’t trust them.
3:14 PM BBT – Austin tells Liz they need to convince James that Clay should be the target. Austin knows that Clay will be coming after him.
3:30 PM BBT – Meg mentions Clay is being mean and wonders if it’s strategy.
3:35 PM BBT – Austin agrees that Clay is acting like a jerk and that it’s making him uneasy. This turns into a Clelli bash-fest.
3:45 PM BBT – Shelli has checked in with Steve to make sure she has his vote. He tells her she does.
4:25 PM BBT – Julia wonders if they should keep Clay. Austin and Liz tell her absolutely not.
4:45 PM BBT – James gets a card to read to HGs. Feeds cut so production can fill them in on something.
4:55 PM BBT – HGs are apparently getting Chipotle tonight.
6:35 PM BBT – Meg, Clay and Shelli talking about the relationships and bonds they’ve formed in the house. Clay says he will never be friends with Audrey.
6:52 PM BBT – Clay and Shelli talking about being split up for a couple months and imply that there’s a bit of fear things will change between them. Clay says if it’s meant to happen it will happen. They are still hoping for some sort of miracle (like they’re all at jury already).
7:10 PM BBT – HGs got their Chipotle and some beer and wine.
8:40 PM BBT – Vanessa talking to Austin and the twins. She’s doing her Vanessa thing and making them all swear to never mess her over. She wants to meet later with them, James, Meg and Jackie to discuss double eviction plans.
8:55 PM BBT – Jackie and James both realizing that there’s probably a plan to keep Shelli and evict Clay. James thinks everyone will stick to the plan his week at least.
9:00 PM BBT – Meg, James, Becky and Jackie aren’t too trusting of Austin and the twins. They talk about going after them if they get the chance. They’ve all made a deal to go after floaters, but they don’t think Austin, the twins or Vanessa will stick to that.
9:10 PM BBT – Jackie says she won’t stick to the deal to go after floaters. She says she’ll target Vanessa.
9:26 PM BBT – Now the whole HOH crew has decided Vanessa should be their target before Austin.
9:55 PM BBT – Vanessa, along with Austin who came earlier, join the HOH crew. She asks them if they want to talk about a double eviction plan. Vanessa asks everyone to agree not to put each other on the block. They say that they’d put up Clay (wait, is he staying or going?) next to John.
10:02 PM BBT – Twins have joined the HOH group and they’re filled in on the plan to not go after each other in the event of a double eviction. So the plan is who ever stays from Shelli and Clay, John and Steve will go during a double eviction.
10:05 PM BBT – Talk goes to who Vanessa thinks should go this week. She’s clearly defending Shelli but everyone sort of overlooks it and agrees that who ever is left can just go next week (as if Shelli won’t win HOH if she stays).
10:10 PM BBT – Jackie asks Vanessa if she’d actually put up Shelli next week if Shelli stays and Vanessa wins HOH. Vanessa says yes. Something tells me Jackie doesn’t buy that any more than I do.
10:12 PM BBT – Steve and John wonder why everyone is up in the HOH room. John tells Steve it’s probably not game talk.
10:20 PM BBT – James tells Austin and the twins that Shelli is the one who was pushing for them to go on the block this week. He also says that Shelli is due for another HOH win and that when she wins she’ll send one of them home.
10:27 PM BBT – Shelli and Clay have broken their no-kissing rule. They’re making out outside.
10:28 PM BBT – HOH meeting breaks up. They all agree to stick to the plan to not target each other through a double eviction.
10:29 PM BBT – A twin comes out and interrupts Clay and Shelli’s make-out session.
10:36 PM BBT – Liz and Julia want to be with the good guys. They think they should vote with the house to evict Shelli. They know that Vanessa would talk them out of it even though upstairs she told everyone to just vote how they feel they should vote.
10:40 PM BBT – Vanessa lies to John and Steve about the HOH talk. She says there was no game talk.
10:44 PM BBT -Jackie talking loudly to James about Vanessa insisting on voting to keep Shelli. Vanessa comes in. She starts her Vanessa gig of asking James if he knows of anything Shelli has said about her so she has a reason to vote her out. James says no and that she should just stick to the promise she made Clay to vote him out. Jackie tells Vanessa it would be easier to vote Shelli out now so she doesn’t have to put her up if she wins HOH. Vanessa agrees that is a good point. Vanessa also remembers that Shelli didn’t include her in the deal she made with James before Shelli dropped out of the HOH competition.
10:57 PM BBT – After Vanessa leaves the HOH room again Jackie calls her out to James saying she doesn’t want to vote out Shelli but claims she’ll nominate her if she wins HOH. Jackie isn’t buying it at all. Jackie is seemingly the only person in the house onto Vanessa.
11:15 PM BBT – James and Jackie talking still. Becky comes in and Jackie asks her how she feels about Vanessa. Becky says it’s more of the same and she talks about how honest she is and how much her word means and then she’ll just break her word. Jackie says Vanessa wants to keep Shelli for her own benefit and wouldn’t care at all if Shelli puts one of them up.
12:00 AM BBT – Vanessa, Austin, and twins going over a plan for what to tell James when they’re ready to admit they want to keep Shelli.
12:55 AM BBT – Vanessa talks with Steve about what was going on upstairs in the HoH room. She suggests James was bullying everyone to get Shelli voted out.
12:55 AM BBT – Austin and Clay have the apology talk that Vanessa was hoping to prevent. Clay promises Austin he’s not mad at him and is on his side.
1:00 AM BBT – Austin updates Vanessa and the twins about his talk with Clay. He’s no longer worried about Clay saying Clay would go after James if he stayed.
2:45 AM BBT – Austin talking with Liz about Clay making amends and why he thinks they might be able to work with him. Sounds like Austin is still thinking of keeping Clay.
The vote continues to be in flux and there’s certainly a chance that Clay could stay, but I’m still expecting Vanessa to apply the last minute pressure to get the votes she needs. Austin and the twins will have to flip on her to keep Clay around.
