Big Brother was in full swing on Saturday as Veto Day arrived and caused as much chaos as one could hope, but chaos can’t be good for all the Houseguests and a changing landscape is about to leave one player without a seat at the table.

Following a non-existent Friday thanks to all the downtime we were ready for some action and we weren’t disappointed following a crucial Power of Veto competition. Read on to find out who won, what the planned appeared to be, and who should be getting very nervous.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Saturday, September 12, 2015:

11:30 AM BBT – HGs have been slowly wandering through the house, but no real activity.

11:51 AM BBT – Feeds cut for the Veto Competition.

4:42 PM BBT – Feeds return. Johnny Mac won the Veto. Scamper time!

4:45 PM BBT – Liz and Austin are in bed and not happy. Liz thought she was close but John couldn’t throw it because Steve almost won.

4:50 PM BBT – Liz tells Austin she would want to work with John but she can’t trust him.

5:00 PM BBT – Vanessa decline Steve’s company and says she’s very frustrated and upset right now. She goes upstairs with candies to start working scenarios.

6:00 PM BBT – Things have been quiet downstairs as Vanessa worked for an hour plotting out next moves with candy before laying down for rest.

7:00 PM BBT – Steve asked Vanessa if he could visit, but she again declined.

7:15 PM BBT – Steve decides he’s visiting anyway and is now in the HoH room to talk with Vanessa about next moves.

7:20 PM BBT – John tells Austin he’s going against what Vanessa expects. He’s going to vote out Steve along with Liz or Austin so they can work together to get Vanessa out next.

7:30 PM BBT – Vanessa and Steve running through scenarios. She wants his input on whether Austin or Liz should go up next.

7:35 PM BBT – Vanessa asks Steve to pick something important and then swear on it that he will vote to keep Vanessa next week. Steve picks his mother. (Since she’s a huge BB fan I imagine he could be okaying with disrupting that swear later, but he may be sincere.)

7:50 PM BBT – Vanessa promises Steve he’s not going home this week, she needs him, and they’ll be together at F2.

7:55 PM BBT – Steve breaking down F2 vote scenarios for Vanessa against either Liz or Austin. He starts with Liz and says Vanessa loses 6-3 against her but then doesn’t get to Austin as they’re sidetracked.

8:00 PM BBT – Steve wants to know about her candy arrangements. Vanessa gets agitated, says he’s annoying her, and to stop even looking at the candy because that’s upsetting her.

8:10 PM BBT – Vanessa warns Steve to not act comfortable. He needs to look nervous, but he’s bad at acting. Vanessa doesn’t want Liztin tipped off that she’s conspiring to split them.

8:40 PM BBT – John relays to Liz and Austin that Julia did talk with him before she left and warned him not to trust Vanessa. (So she did have that talk after all.)

9:00 PM BBT – Liz is sitting down with Vanessa for their talk. Liz advocating for Austin to go up since he’s closer to JMac.

9:15 PM BBT – Liz tells Vanessa she’s worried about going to F2 with a guy (Austin).

9:20 PM BBT – Austin’s talk time. Vanessa points out Liz was just up last week. Austin says he’ll go up if he has to.

9:35 PM BBT – John’s turn with Vanessa. Vanessa is advocating for splitting up the showmance so they can get to F3 better.

9:45 PM BBT – Vanessa suggested John could beat Steve at the end, but John says he thinks Liz would be easier to beat.

10:15 PM BBT – Vanessa continues to run through why John should vote one way over the other. She’s suggesting voting out Austin before switching to why Steve could go.

10:25 PM BBT – John explaining why it’s better to keep Austin and Liz saying they’ll be easier to beat in the final comps as compared to Steve.

10:45 PM BBT – Final Five sit down for dinner.

11:15 PM BBT – Austin assures Liz that Vanessa will be good to them or everyone will target her (Van) next round. Austin says he feels good that John will want Vanessa out next. He says they’re in a good spot with both Vanessa and John wanting to keep them for F3.

11:45 PM BBT – Houseguests hanging around doing general chatter.

12:30 AM BBT – John visits with Austin and Liz in the backyard. John says Vanessa told him Austin had volunteered to go up and that the choice was on John. He mentions how overwhelming it is to listen to all of Vanessa’s scenarios.

12:45 AM BBT – John tells Austin he feels the F2 deal with Steve has caused him problems and he’s ready to shed that weight. John mentions Vanessa called out the showmance as being something to avoid in the F3.

12:50 AM BBT – Austin worries to John that Vanessa might be letting him volunteer to go up while planning to get him out. John tells Austin, “it’s time for me to do bad things.” John says he’ll blindside Steve and is tired of HGs playing nice.

3:00 AM BBT – Houseguests all in bed for the night.

Things definitely went off the track today for Vanessa and she wasn’t happy with having to find a new path to the end. Now she’ll be working on the choice between Austin or Liz but if John sticks to his plan the final eviction this round won’t be in Vanessa’s hands as she might have initially expected.
