It was talk in circles day yet again in the Big Brother 17 house as Vanessa and sometimes Austin pushed for John to stay while the twins remained pretty concrete on their plan to push him out the door.
But what about Meg and James? They were probably sleeping. I kid, I kid. Meg and James are undecided, but Meg has a personal vendetta against Steve, so she seems to be leaning more toward voting him out. But we’ve got another full day of this before anything will be certain. That’s the BB17 way.
Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Tuesday, August 25, 2015:
9:40 AM BBT – Steve is up and wandering around.
10:40 AM BBT – James and Steve making jokes about comparing their “camping gear.” Meg laughing at their silliness.

12:37 PM BBT – John talks to Vanessa about if they want to discuss deals. He’s campaigning to stay but also says if he doesn’t then Vanessa has his Jury vote. John promises that if he comes back then he won’t go after her but rather her other targets.

1:50 PM BBT – John campaigning to Vanessa. Says Austwins were hiding their plan from her by not putting her up from the start. Plan was for all to use the Veto and her to go up or if she won it for James to go up and out instead.
3:35 PM BBT – Liz and Austin have been arguing today so he comes in to try and convince her to go upstairs. They leave. John sits up and pretends to vomit.
5:15 PM BBT – Vanessa upstairs in HoH room telling Austwins she’ll set a trap for John by sending him to the Goblins to try and get them to flip to keep John. This would be a trust-test trap for James and Meg.
5:25 PM BBT – Austin getting very upset that John would be plotting against them. Austin says if he wants a war he’s got one. Liz doesn’t understand why they did to deserve this (umm nominate him for eviction?).
5:30 PM BBT – Talking in circles continues. It literally changes every few minutes on who should go and why. It always goes back to John, but Austin and Vanessa keep bring up reasons to keep John but then shortly after squash the thoughts.
5:42 PM BBT – Austin and Liz call John a “pansy” for how he played the game and threw competitions for people and went up as a pawn so many times.
5:47 PM BBT – Liz and Vanessa imply that all dentists are crazy. Later Austin, the failed wrestler, calls dentists “medical school dropouts.”
6:15 PM BBT – Steve goes to the HOH room. Austin makes fun of Steve and John’s alliance name, “The Rockstars.” Vanessa switches the conversation to Becky bashing. This is a nice group of people, folks.
6:47 PM BBT – Vanessa is back to talking to John. More of the same. She talks about potential scenarios to keep him. She advises him to work on twins before James and Meg.
7:05 PM BBT – Meg and James talking about wanting Jackie to come back into the game.
7:07 PM BBT – Vanessa now in bathroom telling twins that John is still campaigning. Julia doesn’t understand why he won’t just roll over & give up. Vanessa must be bored because she’s going back and forth between John and the twins and contradicting herself every time.
7:40 PM BBT – Twins agree to vote to keep Steve even if the other three don’t.
8:00 PM BBT – Vanessa is pitching Johnny Mac staying to Austin. She tells him John said he’d throw HOH. Austin likes this idea. Austin is worried about Steve being the one to take him out (Like Ian did Boogie).

10:45 PM BBT – James and Austin now discussing who should go this week. Austin, even though he seems to be wanting people to keep John, is giving James all the reasons John should go. He tells James that John is James’ only competition for endurance comps so if he goes James wins those.
10:55 PM BBT – Twins talking about Vanessa (and Austin) wanting John to stay for their own games, but it’s not good for their games. They think Vanessa will get Meg and James to keep John.
11:13 PM BBT – Meg expressing her thoughts to James and Austin on who should go: Steve. But just like everyone else, that conversation goes round and round
11:18 PM BBT – Twins and John meet up to talk. They tell him they’re voting with Vanessa so they want to know what he has to offer. He tells them that he has no problems with them and that there has been a lot of miscommunication. He says if they keep him he will do whatever they want and they all three of them won’t be nominated by him. He agrees that he will target the returning juror and they won’t even go up as pawns.
11:25 PM BBT – Twins won’t tell JMac that they’re keeping him but also promise not to blindside him. They said he’ll know Wednesday night what their decision is.
11:33 PM BBT – Twins telling Austin about their talk with JMac. They don’t think John was offering them a deal. Austin still pushing for Steve to go (this hour anyway).
11:50 PM BBT – Vanessa shows up and the twins tell her about their talk with JMac.
11:53 PM BBT – Austin tells Vanessa and twins that Meg seems to want Steve out. And Vanessa, contradicting everything else she’s said and done today says that’s incentive to keep Steve. I give up trying to understand what she’s thinking. I don’t even think she knows.
11:55 PM BBT – Meg and James having a night swim. They say they wouldn’t vote for Vanessa to win Big Brother because she’s played too dirty.
12:00 AM BBT – Meg says she’d sooner vote for one of the twins than Vanessa to win the game because she doesn’t like how Vanessa has done it.
12:45 AM BBT – Vanessa tells John that Austin is indifferent and the twins suggested that it’s up to her to decide.
2:44 AM BBT – Austin worries that if Steve is voted out and then comes back he’ll be able to work with John to go against them after they broke their deal. Liz says they need to keep Steve and let James take him out instead. Austin agrees and says Steve must stay.
Vanessa campaigned on and off while John did the same, but as we saw she made strange comments and moves that seemed to undermine those efforts. We’ll learn more on Wednesday of the house’s leaning for votes and what Vanessa decides to try next.
