Things changed by the minute in the house throughout the day. Targets have been (in random order): John, Steve, Meg, James, John, Steve … and so on. You know, the usual when this alliance is in power.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Sunday, August 23, 2015:

10:50 AM BBT – HGs got their wake up call but most are slow to leave bed.

11:25 AM BBT – Liz tells Austin she doesn’t kiss on the second date and their Outback reward dinner doesn’t count as a date.

11:45 AM BBT – Vanessa wants to ask John a question. Uh oh, John. She asks if he was sincere to their safety deal. He says he was unless he heard new information.

11:55 AM BBT – John explains to Vanessa that he has no one in the game and could be a useful ally. Vanessa tells John she was a victim of Jackie and Becky in that 8-HG alliance. It wasn’t her fault like they suggested.

12:10 PM BBT – Still chatting, Vanessa continues to dig for information and John is telling her pretty much anything she asks to know. She wants to know one more thing, whether or not he lied about anything Steve told him. John says no.

12:20 PM BBT – Vanessa tells John he has never, ever been her target and wants to fight to save him this week. She’d love to use the Veto on him, but will have to see if she can get approval.

12:55 PM BBT – Vanessa goes to Austin and Liz to tell them John would work with them and agree to nom the Goblins.

1:00 PM BBT – Vanessa suggesting to Austin and Liz that Meg is a huge mastermind working the house.

1:15 PM BBT – Austin talking with John and confirms that Vanessa’s most recent bout of paranoia was kicked off by Meg crying after she lost in the Veto comp on Saturday.

1:40 PM BBT – Vanessa talking to the twins and telling them why everything is good and how they should all trust each other. Smiles and nods from the twins.

2:20 PM BBT – Vanessa on more info hunting this time with Steve. She wants answers. Steve has them. He admits to lying to her about knowing she was a BD target.

2:50 PM BBT – Steve continues to divulge anything he can think of to Vanessa. He says Meg didn’t like that Vanessa pushed a deal on her during the DE. Vanessa is none too pleased.

3:15 PM BBT – Vanessa pushing Austin to send out a Goblin this week.

3:35 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Austin that Meg has been lying to them and playing both sides.

4:45 PM BBT – James realizes that Vanessa may be really hard to get out. (Oops.)

5:00 PM BBT – Vanessa continuing to press to get a Goblin out this week. She says she wants Meg gone.

5:30 PM BBT – Steve is in HoH room with Austin. They’re trying to smooth over things. Steve makes a case for him to come down and James to go instead of Meg. Austin seems into it (for now). Austin talks about coming up with a reason for the twins to vote against James.

6:45 PM BBT – Liz tells Julia that Austin is not a good kisser and her guy back in Miami is better (remember the Sunday night episode where she tells us in her Diary Room that Austin has grown on her? OK, Liz).

7:00 PM BBT – More Austin talk from the twins. All signs point to Austin is toast as soon as they’re out of the house.

7:07 PM BBT – Austin decides that unless he can catch James in a lie he’s not going to ask Vanessa to not use the veto. He’s also worried that will make him and the twins sitting ducks. Julia says Vanessa’s conspiracy theories are stupid and nominations just need to stay the same.

7:15 PM BBT – Austin tells the twins that taking James out helps Vanessa but doesn’t help them.

7:35 PM BBT – Vanessa starts her interrogations again. First it’s JMac and then it’s James. He tells Vanessa only Jackie suggested targeting Vanessa during the double eviction and that he and Meg did not.

8:05 PM BBT – Vanessa asks James who he would target next week. He said he’d ask them for input and that he wouldn’t do anything without them. After they end their talk, Vanessa goes searching for Meg.
