Big Brother 17 Live Feeds Week 13: Sunday Highlights

Yes, it’s nearly the end of the Big Brother 17 Feed days and the Houseguests are ready to be done, but they’re doing a good job of trying to keep something going here as they count down the hours.

After a slow start to the day the final three were up and managed to mix in a little bit of gametalk as Steve continued to push Vanessa on an idea she’s trying to avoid.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Sunday, September 20, 2015:

10:20 AM BBT – Houseguests have their wake-up call and start the day.

10:30 AM BBT – HGs having breakfast. Vanessa is trying to convince Steve that she’s still injured from the endurance comp and will be weakened for round three on Wednesday.

12:00 PM BBT – Steve and Liz are back in bed, but Vanessa is meandering around the house and backyard.

1:30 PM BBT – Liz and Steve are up and out of bed.

2:45 PM BBT – Steve and Liz having a friendly chat while Vanessa heads back to bed like they’re trading off a watch on the house. Liz is recommending some Disney movies for Steve, but he’s not much of hanging around doing nothing that long. (Try 100 days in a house.)

3:00 PM BBT – Vanessa is back and teaching them poker.

4:00 PM BBT – Cards continue. Liz and Steve are having a good time. Too bad they don’t know they should be trying for as much coaching as possible from Vanessa while they can get it!

4:40 PM BBT – The ladies are pretty sure Steve is cheap as they quiz him on things he’d buy. They conclude he is indeed cheap.

6:00 PM BBT – Steve returns to the topic of telling Liz, but Vanessa is again dissuading him from the idea.

6:32 PM BBT – Steve is worried about what the outside world thinks of everything.

6:52 PM BBT – Liz is making food and Steve and Vanessa are playing cards. Steve says he doesn’t watch the live feeds at Final 3 because nothing happens (word, Steve).

7:22 PM BBT – Vanessa beats Steve at a game of Gin Rummy.

8:08 PM BBT – HGs eating the dinner Liz made.

8:35 PM BBT – Steve is laying down while Vanessa and Liz play cards.

9:25 PM BBT – Steve has returned to the kitchen to watch Liz and Vanessa’s gin tournament.

9:36 PM BBT – Steve heads to bed after seemingly annoying Vanessa.

9:40 PM BBT – Vanessa is hungry.

9:50 PM BBT – Liz tells Vanessa she saw Steve pacing outside last night. We know he was working on his evict-Vanessa speech.

10:11 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Steve she can see his worry all over his face. He says he’s worrying about public opinion.

10:15 PM BBT – Liz comes out of the diary room and lets the others know they got fondue voted on by the Live Feeds watchers.

10:25 PM BBT – Liz, Vanessa and Steve eating the fondue.

10:50 PM BBT – Houseguests enjoying the last of their fondue while Liz worries Austin may have moved on to Jackie at the Jury house.

11:20 PM BBT – Vanessa is laying down, Liz is cleaning up, and Steve heads out to play in the pool.

11:25 PM BBT – Steve is rehearsing his speech for if he gets to cut Vanessa from F2. Not much has changed since the night before.

1:00 AM BBT – Steve is still outside practicing his finale night speeches for both cutting Vanessa and F2 talk to the Jury.

1:30 AM BBT – Steve studies the events from the entire season. He’s going over possible tie-breaker questions.

2:30 AM BBT – Steve mentions he thinks Vanessa still believes he’ll take her to F2, but he won’t.

3:00 AM BBT – All Houseguests are down, but Steve doesn’t stay there for long.

Few more days to go before Steve and Vanessa face off. This is going to be a very high stakes series of silly questions. The entire season will come down to basically a guessing game. Kinda crazy.

  1. Anybody has this issue ? Since yesterday. I’m not getting the message for new posts on any on the board on this site. To see new posts I have to reload.

    • I don’t think I’ve had that issue. What browser are you using? Does it happen in more than one browser?
      Oh and based off your Raiders logo, I’m guessing you’re pretty happy about yesterday’s game. That was painful to watch at times.

      • But the last 49 seconds were great! Sorry, I kind of butted in on your convo…I’ve used Chrome, Mozilla, Foxfire…nothing helps.

      • Hey that’s cool! :)
        It seems like our team is falling apart! The defense is not what it used to be, that’s for sure.

      • We need to form a huge pep rally to give them some much needed doses of encouragement. Power in numbers and all that!

      • LOL! What’s funny, is that I never even watched the Raiders play until I kept seeing Captain’s avatar! It sent a subliminal message to me!

      • My oldest nephew is a HUGE Raiders fan. He is only 4 yrs younger than me so we were raised more like siblings than aunt/nephew. Anyway, I got my company’s TN Titans tickets occasionally and my nephew flew in from STL when we hosted the Raiders. That was cool. He’s a good guy so I don’t mind the trash talk (which is minimal from him anyway).

        I tell them all the time to come to Nashville – It’s a great place to live and visit, I think. So much to do besides sports. But yeah, he’s only come here when the Raiders were in town. Nice.

      • Yeah it was painful for us. I need to stop wearing my baltimore shirt because it’s just getting embarrassing….

    • I am not able to vote at all. This is fixed. It won’t let me or my sister, who doesn’t live with me, vote. This isn’t fair. I’m sure other people are having the same problems.

      • No, I see the new article arrive. I put up post and I see it. But I don’t those blue message that someone else has posted. But I just thought of something I did on Saturday. Will let you know if it is the case.
        In that same line I experience the other problem Cyril and I talk to you 2 weeks ago. I had it last Tuesday night. I took a picture, so I send it to you.

    • In disqus..up under your login name, where you would add a new comment, make sure you are “set to newest” so the newest comments appear at the top of the comment section. Sometimes, it will set itself to default, which is “oldest” first. Hope this helps Cap’n..

      • That just change the sequence of the posts. 1st post at the top or at the bottom. Doesn’t affect the message for new post.

    • YES! I’ve switched browsers…re-set the Disqus…fixed my flash player and when I type, it takes 4 or 5 seconds before it shows on the screen. I get messages that tell me a plug-in has failed or something has crashed. There are a LOT of pop-up ads too, which seems to be making it slower. I’ve had this problem all season long. ???!!!

      • I’ve had the issue with type not coming up right away at times but I figured I was just typing too fast for my phone.

        Does it happen on other sites too? If you’re using a PC, you may want to do a virus scan.

      • No, it doesn’t happen on other sites. And I actually did do a virus scan, because I figured it had to be my computer. Didn’t help. I didn’t have a problem last year. I’m stumped.

      • Sorry for all the obvious questions, they’re just things ya gotta ask. Like on IT Crowd Roy answers the phone “hello, IT, have you tried turning it off and on again?”

        A while back (late July I think) I was having problems with this site for most of a week. The video ads on the sides would start to play and if you tried to scroll down it would yank you back up the page to the ad, even after it had ended. I’m still not sure what was up then. I wish I could help more but I’m out of ideas. Sorry :(

      • Try installing AdBlock Plus (it’s free). That resolved a lot of issues I was having in the beginning on disqus and bbnetwork!

      • I’ve yet to have all the problems many of you have experienced. I’ve had another browser crash, but after uninstalling that completely and installing Google Chrome, I’ve yet to experience any more crashes!

      • See, that’s what I did, Joni. I switched to Foxfire—and it helped for a while. Then the problem got worse, so I uninstalled it and went back to Google Chrome. It was OK for a little while, but then the same problems…so I switched AGAIN and had to uninstall that too. I really am at a loss. But at least (eventually) I am able to make and get replies to my comments. Oh well…just a few more days, anyway. ):

      • Could have to do with a glitch in your operating system. I installed Classic Shell so I can make Windows 8.1 run like Windows 7 or XP. Not sure that has anything to do with processing Flash-operated blogs…but more to do with navigation. If I knew exactly the problems you’re having consistently, I might be able to help to some degree. I’ve been modifying and customizing operating systems since 1995…Most operating systems and browsers have gotten much more user friendly as the years passed and a whole lot more advanced technically than my basic experience can keep up with anymore! :-)

      • Stuff has gotten more user friendly to the point that some functions are hidden because the average user wouldn’t know what to do with them and probably shouldn’t mess with them anyway.

        Growing up, my parents were contracted by Motorola to fix pagers so they worked in our basement. We’re a techie family but I’m not great with troubleshooting.

      • Classic shell has nothing to do all these problem. It just reactivate a few line of code that was put to sleep by MS. Classic shell is very solid and problem-free.

  2. Why in the heck does Steve keep pushing this “let’s tell Liz” issue? Does he want to piss Vanessa off that much more on finale night when and if he does evict her? I hate that the end of this game comes down to guessing on questions about HG’s..I think all three rounds should be endurance/mental/skill.

    • Know what, I think he’s keeping the counter suspicion alive. If he just stops asking, height be thinking the V, will get suspicious. Odd that iT’s ass backwards but he’s got to keep up the con in order to make her think he thinks she just, just, might not have a final 2 with Lizzy, which he knows she does. He’s gaming.

    • He is pressing to tell Liz to make Vanessa uncomfortable. He knows that if she was sincere in taking him to F2 – it wouldn’t be an issue telling Liz. It’s a button to push (over and over again) to see her reaction and reassure himself that he planned strategy is correct.

      • Well, if he isn’t careful, he will lose her vote..which if Vanessa does go out to jury..I think she will give her vote to Liz. Steve better be careful with these jury votes..Liz has Austin, Julia, maybe Vanessa, I think she would get Shelli and Meg and James..that’s enough to win the game. Steve and his baby ways and “I’m sneaky,” and “I want my mommy, have become so annoying to me. Especially on the feeds the last few days.

    • I think Steve really isn’t sure what Vanessa is going to do and he is trying to see if she would commit to keeping him by telling Liz she is not going to final two with either Steve or Vanessa. Perhaps he is building his case to let Vanessa go if he wins. He can tell her she made him suspicious by not doing what Cody and Derrick did last year.

  3. Does Vanessa not realize what round 3 is or does she think Steve is stupid enough to fall for that? Ridiculous.

      • I believe Lynn is referring to the (probably) final part of the HOH competition. Steve and Vanessa would both stand on one platform that is part of a giant scale. Each time one gets a correct answer and the other does not, the scale tips in favor of who is ahead. I’m blanking a little on exactly how it works or what the questions are about, but I think that’s the general idea, and I’m pretty sure it’s what they used for part 3 HOH in the last few years, but I’m not entirely sure.

      • Ooh thank you for your help. Did they used to do the final round inside the house years ago? Because that’s what I picture for round 3 so am I losing it? lol

      • Yes, they have done it inside the house for years..but just recently moved it outside within the last couple of years.

      • Well I feel less crazy but also not so observant :P I had a rough night so I am not thinking very well.
        I’m kind of remembering the scales now, but what is there to not understand (like you said earlier about Vanessa)?

  4. You know the phrase; “she left the reservation, or better said she flew the coup”? Well unlike most people the V (can’t look at her face or say her name) the V, has 5 reservations or chicken coups at once. On top of some speed meds dabbled in and whatever peosonal damage she brought into the house, which.makes her an emotional beast.

  5. CBS should consider moving finale night to Sunday and forget that stupid walk down memory lane. If they feel they must do that then have a “reunion” show a couple of days after the season is over.

    There is too much time between the F2 and finale and its boring.

  6. I’m already starting to feel homesick somewhat. Not from the show about to being over, but missing everyone I’ve come to enjoy spending time with here on the blog! Although us regulars have never met, I feel we’ve developed a special bond via the vehicle of Big Brother! Anyone else doing this?

      • He didn’t believe he deserved it…I’m like, what? Just goes to show how some of us are our own worst critics! I’m going to miss him so much more now that I won’t see him on a regular basis from the comfort of my home! LOL

      • Me, too, sister! Yes, he was very humble which made me that much happier he won. :)

        He’s a STL Cardinals fan and we clinched our playoff berth this weekend so maybe now he can come see some games?

      • I loved how he climbed up onto the stage! I’m a huge fan of his, and I LOVED how he redeemed himself in the finale. He’s a great comedian, too. And pretty easy on the eyes! *sigh*

      • I loved the roll. I don’t care if it was the Emmys – I loved it! His self-deprecating ways get to me, too. He is HILARIOUS in skits, etc. I love that!

      • He can be very funny. Ever seen the show Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt? He’s only in a couple episodes. He’s basically the villain of the show and we get to see him use lawyer show cliches to get out of some pretty nasty criminal charges.

    • Most of us will be at survivorfandom dot com.
      Same as here, run by Matthew also. Not as much talk between show, but we’re there during the broadcast.

  7. I don’t get why Vanessa would try to convince Steve that her injury will affect her in the final round, it’s not a physical comp, it’s always the same comp where you have to guess how the jury members finished phrases or answered questions. Am I missing something?

    • Maybe she wants pity or wants him to think she’ll be on painkillers/meds and groggy so he won’t have to study or try hard.
      I’m sure it’s total game by her and by him, as well (pressing for them to give Liz the Victoria talk). But I don’t have live feeds; just here mostly & some BBAD.

      • I don’t have the live feeds either. Last year I watched them on one of the free sites but I didn’t bother trying this year since I dunno if they’d work on my smartphone. Now I’m tempted to try…

      • I just started subscribing to the live feeds three months ago. I’ve met some great people in the chat rooms there and we all ended up forming our own private chatroom to avoid some of the trolls and overly obsessive hg fans…and will use that room next season!

      • That’s cool! Trolls are (sigh) annoying. I usually just ignore them. Don’t feed the trolls, right? You’ll never change their minds, they won’t listen or hear you out so why waste your breath? No sense in being aggravated about something you enjoy :D

      • My father says I can be a bit vindictive at times…I disagree…just enjoy the mind games people try to play that I’ll never fall for! :-)

      • 7-18 here. But I don’t like to eat crabs, unless they’re already disassembled. Never want to work that hard for my meal! hahaha

      • love crab! guess you’re not “into” crawfish either, huh, Joni? all that work for just a lil bite of meat?

      • Virgo was my 1st thought but then he likes to play around and reminds me of my youngest bro, who’s a bull. :)

      • I’m Sagittarius and first hubby was a Scorpio. Whew! Talk about having passionate arguments! And passionate…never mind. :)…too much of a lady to say. lol!

      • Tell me about it. My sister and I have never seen eye-to-eye on anything and well…I’ve never liked her since I knew she existed! She no longer talks to me – out of sight, out of mind kind of thing for years now and I’ve never been made to feel welcomed in her home…I tend to stay in a hotel when I go back home. She’s passionate about stuff I find petty and superfluous! And massively vindictive…wooosh, I don’t need that much of a dosage! hahaha Love my Sagittarian brother, though!!! He cracks me up!

      • I’m Sagittarius and first hubby was a Scorpio. Whew! Talk about having passionate arguments! And passionate…never mind. :)…too much of a lady to say. lol!

      • I was really disturbed that production allowed V to take her muscle relaxer with alcohol! As much as I hate her game play, I don’t want anything bad to happen to her. Production should have stepped in…drugs and alcohol—DANGEROUS combo. I don’t care if she’s always done that— your body (and tolerance) can change. Even one pill with one drink…man-oh-man. What was production–and V—thinking?! Everyone who thinks the show is scripted—you must be crazy to think that the drugs and alcohol was written into that ‘scene’.

      • I found that odd, too, when I read she washed down her meds with booze. Maybe she did it before they could stop her but it sounded like that’s a regular thing for her? Woof. Like you, that is a little disturbing.

      • Oh boyo can it ever. I got some insight early on when hubby decided to drink while on a new medication that said “drinking while on this medication may enhance the effects of alcohol!” I didn’t read this on the bottle until after the aftermath at the time he did just that. It was not a very pleasant ordeal to say the least. I just told him that if he ever becomes too old and feeble for me to handle that I’m hiring a nurse named Bubba to care for him as I just cannot lift him when he’s in that kind of condition! LOLOL

      • Yeah everyone should know the best way to chase a muscle relaxer is with a joint not a drink.

        Side note:
        Did they ban smoking in the bb house or yard?
        Were there smokers this season and I just didn’t pay much attention.. Now that I think about it.. I think I recall Jayson smoking so that may answer my question.
        Next question is, with the pot laws letting up, when will we have a “medical patient” puffing on pot in bb House?

        Edit: I don’t condone mixing of drugs or the use of illegal narcotics.

      • Jason was the only smoker this year. But you bring up an interesting point about the medical weed. In MI, it’s legal to HAVE the pot—but it’s illegal in my apartment building to use it. ??!! Guess BB will have to move to Colorado and see what happens. BTW, I don’t use.

      • I’m familiar with Michigan law lol I’m close to Ann arbor and its always had leniency toward MJ.
        I’ll plead the 5th on my use or giving care to those who may use.

      • I live very close to A2, too. Love that town!
        It makes me paranoid, and I’m not talking about A2. lol! I mean, I THINK it would. I wouldn’t know.

      • Ahh high neighbor lol
        I am on North lake, if that tells you anything.
        From that town where Jiffy mix is made lol

      • Yes! Go west about 15 miles and you’ll find me. Go ten more minutes down 94-W and you’ll find the big porn shop.

      • A friend lives in gillets lake at exit 145 lol
        I’ve seen that shop..didn’t know what they sold so I figured I’d go look around lol

      • Ha! You made me spit out my water! Such a guy thing…you figured you’d go look around. ;) Did you find anything?

      • I remember years ago they had a “hash bash” on the U of M campus. Yep I was a part of it. Back in my foolish days. Lol

      • I would think that if someone truly needed that then they probably aren’t healthy enough to be in the game. I was surprised Meg was allowed considering the condition of her knees.

      • I felt the same way. I know they would have given her a safe dose, but muscle relaxants are serious. If you take too many at a time, your lungs stop working and you can’t breathe on your own. It’s scary stuff if misused.

      • I was concerned too. For sincere reasons… but also can you imagine having to be around her after production almost let her die? ;)

    • She’s never watched Big Brother very much at all and its workings…like superfans do. So every week comes as a surprise to her than to Steve! That’s a plus for him now more so going against her! He’s not cluing her in anymore!

  8. Humph! “Liz worries Austin may have moved on to Jackie at the Jury house.” Already? I guess that’s what happens when you date a guy that has a girlfriend. Whe you are out of sight, out of mind and he moves on (or you are in constant worry he will do the same to you).

    • What she going to do when he’s several states away from her? Geesh. Paranoia has set in big time with her. Jackie doesn’t care for Austin at all.

    • That kinda surprised me. Julia’s in the house. She could set him up if she doesn’t really “love him” like she said in her exit interview.
      That boy is lovestruck!

      Like Brian, I wondered, “Why Jackie?” She’s hot but I wondered if he mentioned being attracted to her before. Or has Jackie mentioned being attracted to him? Or is this something that Vanessa put in her head?

      Wouldn’t be Shelli, Julia for sure. Why not Becky or Meg? Oh well, surely he can behave for a week or so.

      • In her exit interview, Julia told Julie she “loves” Austin. Along those lines….she supports their relationship, etc.

      • and she LIED! lol. What else is she going to say “ewwww, Julie-uuuuhhhh. He’s so gross and nasty.” That would be bad for Liz….

      • I don’t doubt that but who knows? I’m just saying if she doesn’t really “love” him, she could set him up by whispering in Liz’s ear after the show, about alleged flirting between him & other ladies in JH. (Especially given Liz voicing doubt now.) That’s all. I don’t really care. Just saying :)

      • Yea, it’s nothing like people think. Can’t see all the hours and bond made between the 3. Its intense and unique. Judging doesn’t give credit against it. U say something pretty amazing boys. if you don’t understand l, I can’t explain it. The gf thing also is you think.

      • I thought he would have moved on to Julia to get his Liz fix. It wouldn’t be Shelli because of Clay, Meg because of James, Becky because of James (maybe). Even though Jackie entered the game with Jeff, they didn’t seem like they were together so that leaves Jackie.

    • ‘Tis true. If they will cheat with you, they will cheat on you. So Liz has Austin. What exactly does she have? A man who will cheat on his girlfriend.

    • Great point about cheaters, but in this case I’m pretty sure Liz doesn’t have anything to worry about; I bet Jackie would throw up at the idea of kissing Austin.

      • I would have thought any normal person would feel that way about him. But these are NOT 2 normal people. Remember before Liz started to like him, she said she was afraid to be in jury with him because he might sneak into her room and rape her.

  9. Praying to the BB Gods that Steve wins part 3. That will be the best part of the entire season watching Vanessa walk out that door.
