The Big Brother 17 Live Feeds will now only have three houseguests for us to watch, and while they aren’t the most exciting of the 17 to play this season, it should still be interesting as each one decides who they should take to the final two.

After part one played out, the houseguests were a little exhausted and didn’t do much strategizing but based on the outcome, some presumptions can be made. Read on to find out what went down last night.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Wednesday, September 16, 2015:

6:01 PM BBT – Feeds return. Final 3 gathered in the kitchen.

6:05 PM BBT – Vanessa doing a lot of talking. Says John made a F2 offer and she had to accept it in case he stayed. Steve points out the choice of him staying was hers to make…

6:15 PM BBT – Vanessa whispers to Liz that she has more to tell her later. Vanessa says she could hear the audience go “awww” when she evicted John. Liz is a little hurt.

6:23 PM BBT – Steve, alone, says he’ll take Liz to F2 if he wins Round 3.

6:25 PM BBT – Vanessa gives her word to Steve that she doesn’t have a F2 with Liz. Or that she didn’t use those words. You know how she carefully phrases these things.

7:00 PM BBT – Steve tells Vanessa they have a great, unique alliance because they are both very similar. He says they are not a Derrick & Victoria pairing.

7:07 PM BBT – Steve again brings up his “secret” to Vanessa and hints around at things including “virgin,” “girls,” and “coming out.” You can listen and decide.

7:30 PM BBT – Steve starts talking to Vanessa again about his secret saying he wishes he could tell her everything. She says to wait just a little longer.

7:58 PM BBT – DR calls Steve in. Vanessa jumps up, says this is it, and wakes Liz.

8:00 PM BBT – Vanessa starts telling Liz how girls need to stick together. She waited for Steve to go in to DR for this conversation.

8:02 PM BBT – Feeds cut for Part One of the final Head of Household competition.

12:47 AM BBT – Feeds return. Vanessa has won the first stage of the final HoH.

12:48 AM BBT – Vanessa says she won’t even be able to move come finale night because she’s so much older than the other HGs. Steve promises there is nothing else physical for the season for her.

12:52 AM BBT – While Liz gets ready for the shower Vanessa tells Steve she knows he can win round two.

12:55 AM BBT – When Vanessa leaves the kitchen Steve goes to the clock to start working out how many minutes had past in the HoH comp in case that’s the tie-breaker in round three.

1:30 AM BBT – Vanessa gives Liz her word that she’ll cut Steve at F3 and take Liz to F2. Vanessa tells Liz they can’t let Steve know though and she promises to take her no matter what Vanessa might be saying to Steve. Liz promises she won’t even try to make a deal with Steve.

1:35 AM BBT – Vanessa explains to Liz that this is all about revenge for her over Steve trying to bring John in to replace her. Says she doesn’t owe any loyalty to Steve but Liz has always been good to her.

1:55 AM BBT – Vanessa says she’ll get Liz to the F2.

2:00 AM BBT – Vanessa is working on Liz about things Austin did to plot against the twins.

2:10 AM BBT – Liz tells Vanessa she won’t hold it against her that she evicted Austin. She’s making excuses for Vanessa and saying she didn’t have a choice. Vanessa says Austin and JMac were making deals. Lots of “I know-uh” from Liz. The Austin roast session runs for awhile.

2:20 AM BBT – Vanessa points out that she and Liz have a combined 7 HoH’s. Vanessa suggests her Round 1 win makes her the current HoH. Someone should explain that to her later.

2:45 AM BBT – HGs settling in for sleep.

Vanessa continues to make deals with anything that moves and especially anything still set to compete against her in the third round. Once part two is settled we should see her narrow her focus of deal making. It’ll be interesting to see who gets scumbagged because Vanessa can’t keep these promises to both HGs and she sure won’t intentionally throw round three to avoid that.
