Veto Day for the Big Brother 17 Houseguests started out slow but nothing like a little delusional level of expectations to set off the tears and drama when things didn’t go the way a particular set of twins thought it might.
Yes, Liz and Julia were back in tears mode today as they struggled with a new reality and that left Austin in the dog house with a bleak chance of escaping anytime soon.

Vanessa is upset that he was trying to coordinate with the twins to save all three of them since that would have sent him to the Block. (Yes, how dare he try to play the game too.)

6:05 PM BBT – Vanessa is trying to encourage the twins to see which of them has a better chance to win. She says Julia is playing for $50K at best while Liz could pull off the win and get $500K. Neither seems to question why someone would encourage the stronger competitor to stay to benefit them against her.
6:15 PM BBT – Austin says he’s still wearing the Veto so the Feedsters know who won. The competition ended over three hours ago. Steve says he’s sure BigBrotherNetwork.com has already published the information for everyone online. (Steve is very generous in his shout outs to us!)
