If this week in the Big Brother 17 house has proven anything, it’s that John and Becky are really boring nominees.

It has been an incredibly slow week with only a few Vanessa meltdowns and I think I speak for everyone when I say we’re sick of seeing Austin and Liz kiss and … well you get the picture. The good news is, this week ends tonight and next week will surely be an exciting one! So let’s just prepare for that.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Wednesday, August 19, 2015:

9:00 AM BBT – Becky is up and icing her toe before heading in to the DR.

9:40 AM BBT – James and Meg are up talking to Becky. Becky is crying from the pain. She asked for a doctor over five hours ago and has not received any attention of medicine.

10:30 AM BBT – Sleep. Sleep. Sleep.

12:30 PM BBT – Becky gets called to the DR. She stands up and hobbles down the hall. Cameras do not follow her path.

12:55 PM BBT – Austin wakes Liz up with breakfast. They’re the only two up and around in the house.

1:00 PM BBT – Austin tells Liz that Becky needs to campaign so they can tell her John made a more convincing argument.

2:17 PM BBT – Liz and Austin agree that Becky is milking this toe injury as strategy. People could think she’s not a threat if she’s injured (she has said she can only win comps that involved running). They say they hope no one is falling for it and that they still want her to go to jury. They say they will decide which side of the house they’ll go with depending on who wins the next HOH.

3:10 PM BBT – Julia says she’s going to try hard to win HOH. Austin tells her that if it comes down between her and someone else they’d like to win she should make a deal and throw it. Austin thinks it would be good for James to win HOH.

3:23 PM BBT – Liz and Julia talking about not wanting Vanessa to win next week. They wonder if she would backdoor Austin and then they talk about everyone telling Vanessa all the things they’ve said about her this week.

4:40 PM BBT – Becky finally got antibiotics and pain meds for her foot injury.

6:00 PM BBT – Vanessa and John talking game. He’s grown comfortably numb to be nominated and says he’s ready if his eviction happens. Vanessa suggests being HoH is more difficult than being nominated. John says he won’t campaign against Becky.

6:05 PM BBT – Vanessa tells John she does all her own accounting because “unless you have millions and millions in the bank” it isn’t worth paying someone to do it for you. Yep.

7:15 PM BBT – HGs are finally getting their meal from BB. They’ve ordered In-N-Out.

8:00 PM BBT – Feeds cut to highlights. Must be dinner time (why exactly can’t we see them eating In-N-Out?

9:00 PM BBT – Feeds are back. HGs are getting ready to play their makeshift bowling game. This means no game talk. Again.

9:58 PM BBT – HGs get a new BB announcement: “Houseguests: Please clean your house!”

10:00 PM BBT – Becky apologizes to John for having to deal with her complaining. She said she’s taken two vicodin and is still in pain.

10:10 PM BBT – JMac and Becky spending their last evening together in the house.

10:15 PM BBT – Austin and Liz have retreated to the HOH room. Austin is annoyed with Vanessa again. They talk about a final five with them, Julia, James and Meg.

11:09 PM BBT – What Austin and Liz thought might happen has happened: Julia has fallen for what they think was Becky’s plan: exaggerate her injury so she won’t be a threat. Julia asks if the should keep Becky. Liz says no way.

11:13 PM BBT – Vanessa shows up in the HOH with the same idea as Liz (remember when Vanessa PROMISED Johnny Mac he wouldn’t be going home this week?).

11:15 PM BBT – Liz is still trying to advise against this idea. She suggests she might be better by veto and then she wins it and is in the house yet another week.

11:22 PM BBT – Austin joins the girls in the HOH. They’re telling him their thoughts. He’s receptive but still advising against (remember he and Liz want JMac to take Vanessa out).

11:24 PM BBT – Elsewhere Meg and James are talking about how exhausting Becky and her problems are and they want her out.

11:25 PM BBT – Vanessa wants Austin to get John so they can talk to him about making deals.

11:28 PM BBT – Austin says that this week coming up isn’t the one they want to win. They should let James or Johnny Mac have it and they can go after each other. Vanessa agrees (but I doubt she really agrees).

1:00 AM BBT – Austin and Liz doing their making out again. He’s trying for more but she’s shutting him down.

1:45 AM BBT – Liz and Austin excited about parties after the finale.

2:00 AM BBT – Steve and Becky talking about life back home.

3:45 AM BBT – Becky was up for DR and hobbling around.

There’s talk of a shift, but I don’t think we’ll see it. There’s no pressure to shake things up at this point and the votes are likely to end up as they’ve been planned for days now.
