Once the comp was over the next round of talks were underway as the HoH was busy making sure they were making the right decision which of course means a hundred loops on every possibility before returning to the original plan anyway.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Saturday, August 22, 2015:

Liz doesn’t like how Steve is working closely with JMac so she thinks Steve needs to go. Julia joins them and is shocked to hear HGs might be lying to them.

12:25 AM BBT – Vanessa interrogating Steve and wants to know if there was a BD plan against her this week. He denies hearing anything like that.

12:30 AM BBT – Steve warns John that Vanessa is on the warpath. John is worried that Meg and James will rat them out about Vanessa being a target. Steve says they could deny saying they couldn’t have known that.

12:45 AM BBT – Twins think the noms will stay the same this week as they don’t expect Vanessa to use her Veto.

2:50 AM BBT – Meg tells James she’s upset that Vanessa was harassing her about the crying. She was just emotional.

2:55 AM BBT – Liz notes that HGs were coming up after the Veto comp. She suggests that means HGs don’t trust them and were worried. Earlier Austin and Liz said that since no one came up to them before the comp it means HGs didn’t trust them and were worried…

3:00 AM BBT – Austin contemplates going after James for eviction. Liz thinks that’s a great idea and would get Steve back in their corner.

3:05 AM BBT – Downstairs James and Meg are worried. They want to get back the surviving member of John and Steve to work with them along with whoever comes back. They know Austwins and Vanessa are a F4.

3:30 AM BBT – Austin and Liz still up alternating between making out and talking game. Liz worries about what Vanessa suggested was going on. Austin wonders if there was some other plan going on with the other four players (Goblins & Steve/John).

There’s talk of targeting Steve or James, but things keep returning to John. He remains the most likely target at this time but it’s a long road to Thursday night from here as we carry on through the second straight week of total control by the Austwins and Vanessa side of the house.
