It was a mild Sunday in the Big Brother 17 house, but that’s to be expected when any one of Austin or his Angels are Head of Household.

Meg and James spent the day trying to figure out how to convince Vanessa that Meg shouldn’t go anywhere this week, but they’re mostly coming up short.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Sunday, August 30, 2015:

11:00 AM BBT – HGs finally starting their day.

11:15 AM BBT – Steve and John talking strategy. John wants to have each of their three (including Vanessa) team up with a second player to manipulate them. Steve says they need to keep Vanessa happy this week and make sure she feels good about them supporting Meg’s eviction.

11:20 AM BBT – Austin asks Steve how things look with John. Steve downplays their relationship and says he thinks things might be okay with John.

11:55 AM BBT – HGs are sent to the backyard for lockdown. This finally forces some of them to get out of bed.

12:30 PM BBT – Back inside the HGs find Fun Dip as a reward from the Feedsters.

12:35 PM BBT – John tells Vanessa that their cover story is working with Steve because he thinks the two of them are still at odds. Vanessa reminds John that Meg needs to go or she’s a dangerous pawn that will always stay over her co-nom. Vanessa tells John that Austin will make a deal with him to exchange safety just between the two of them. John likes that deal.

1:10 PM BBT – James and Meg trying to decide how to handle Vanessa’s upcoming renom. Meg wants to suggest it’s more dangerous to send her home. They wonder about Julia going up as a pawn against her.

1:18 PM BBT – Vanessa offers Julia $10,000 of her own money if her pawn plan doesn’t work out.

1:30 PM BBT – Vanessa giving an emotional retelling of her talk last night with James. Vanessa is exaggerating a lot of it, but the twins seem to believe it all and are very supportive.

1:40 PM BBT – Vanessa returns after a very short DR session. She says she “got spanked” over offering Julia cash as insurance to trust her pawn plan. Vanessa says what she meant to say to Julia was she feels very confident in her plan.

2:15 PM BBT – Steve promises Liz that he will vote to keep Julia safe.

2:35 PM BBT – Meg heads up to HoH to have “the talk” with Vanessa. Meg isn’t going to be able to influence Vanessa but she has to try.

2:55 PM BBT – Talk continues between Meg and Vanessa. Vanessa suggests this game has been very hard for her in part because she’s gay.

3:20 PM BBT – Vanessa and Meg end their talk. Vanessa has encouraged Meg to campaign no matter who goes up on Monday.

5:10 PM BBT – Game talk has slowed down. Austin excited for his one-week anniversary with Liz.

6:05 PM BBT – Photobooth is open again.

6:25 PM BBT – Meg is feeling like she’ll be evicted this week. James is surprised to hear that.

6:40 PM BBT – James and Meg discuss how bitter the jury is and will be against Vanessa. They don’t think she will win after the way she’s played the game.

7:26 PM BBT – Austin tells Vanessa he wants to try to convince James if he’s HOH to only nominate Vanessa and not Vanessa and Austin so he can win the veto and use it on her. Vanessa tells Austin John has agreed to go after James next week.

7:27 PM BBT – Julia tells Liz that she thinks Vanessa is keeping John safe so he can go for Liz and austin.

7:40 PM BBT – Julia now expressing her reservations for being a pawn. She’s afraid Steve won’t vote to save her.

8:12 PM BBT – Vanessa again trying to make Steve feel bad for turning on her last week. She really seems to enjoy doing that to Steve in particular.

8:20 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Steve that Austin has changed his mind about wanting to be in the final 3 with Liz and Julia.

8:35 PM BBT – Austin tells James and Meg that Vanessa is doing what Evel Dick did, as in take her to the end because no one likes her (that’s not what ED did. He just didn’t like anyone and didn’t pretend to). James again says the jury will be bitter against Vanessa.

8:40 PM BBT – Austin speculates about next week when the have-not room is gone and what twists they might use it for.

8:52 PM BBT – Austin goes to Vanessa and tells her everything he just talked about with Meg and James.

9:05 PM BBT – Dinner time.

9:28 PM BBT – Julia tells Liz it would be funny if James saves Meg with the veto.

9:40 PM BBT – HGs playing pool, lounging around or cleaning up after dinner.

10:20 PM BBT – James said if Meg leaves, he’s done being friends with people and that its all about winning then. They talk about what Meg can say to Vanessa to appeal to her wanting Meg to stay. Meg will promise to throw HOH and will even tell James to put her up over Vanessa.

1:00 AM BBT – Vanessa and Liz discuss just telling Meg what’s going on and that they won’t be swayed.

1:30 AM BBT – Meg goes up to HoH to have her talk with Vanessa. Meg offers her the moon and everything in between. She promises she won’t try to win HoH but if James does then she’ll agree to go up as a pawn. Vanessa says she’ll consider the deal but doesn’t think James would hold to a deal with Vanessa.

2:10 AM BBT – Back downstairs Meg is telling James how it went. James is nervous about the idea but willing to see where it goes.

Vanessa won’t take Meg’s deal but she’ll let her think she might. It’ll be good to try to act civil with James and Meg since at least James is staying for sure, but I don’t think Vanessa will be interested in letting James keep his ally. After Monday that choice won’t be up to her though.
