Vanessa pulled the trigger on her Big Brother 17 nominations today so that means all of the reasons she invented over night to go after her targets are getting good use.

Vanessa, even though thinks she is making a big move, took the easy route this week that has left a certain houseguest in tears. Read on to find out the details of today’s events.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Friday, August 28, 2015:

9:18 AM BBT – Feeds cut for wake-up call.

9:21 AM BBT – Feeds back. HGs are still sleeping.

9:30 AM BBT – HGs getting up for the morning.

10:05 AM BBT – Vanessa discusses noms plan with Austin and making James the target with only Veto in his way of eviction. She says she has to make the biggest move she can with minimal blood on her hands. James isn’t with them but he’s still a threat, so he’s the logical choice, she thinks.

10:20 AM BBT – Austin talking with Vanessa and Liz speculating about fan favorites and crowd reactions.

10:35 AM BBT – Austin thinks getting the clown nose in his basket means he’s the funny guy of the season. Austin is hopeful he and Liz are perceived like a Brenchel couple. Vanessa says she thinks no one will be hated from this season (oops America kind of doesn’t like Austin and Liz).

11:12 AM BBT – HGs sleeping or not on camera at the moment.

11:45 AM BBT – Austin talking about what he wants to do with his life after Big Brother. He’s talking about being a fitness instructor.

12:20 PM BBT – Vanessa and Austin working on her nomination speech. Vanessa mentions how Meg hasn’t done anything or won anything all season but ride coattails. The speech plans turn to chess references and it all sounds pretty lame.

1:00 PM BBT – Vanessa and Austwins talk about how hard that HOH competition was. Austin thinks it was designed for the jurors to do well because they were all rested (expect JMac who was evicted literally 10 minutes before the comp and outlasted the others).

2:20 PM BBT – Have-Nots revealed for the last week of the season. Vanessa takes volunteers of James, John, Julia, and Meg.

2:30 PM BBT – James is upset and says Austin has never been a Have-Not. (Austin has been a HN twice.) Meg and James are starting to worry that they may be the noms. (Yep.)

2:35 PM BBT – James suddenly remembers the deal he made with Vanessa that she couldn’t nom him along with one other person from weeks ago. (Vanessa remembered this deal last night but planned to lie about an overriding deal with Steve.) James says they just need to make it through this week and they will be fine.

2:40 PM BBT – Feeds cut. Nomination ceremony time.

3:43 PM BBT – Feeds return. Vanessa nominated James and Meg. Meg is upset. James tells her she needs to calm down before talking to Vanessa.

3:50 PM BBT – Meg and James feel like they didn’t do anything to deserve being nominated. Meg says Vanessa won’t win Big Brother with how dirty she’s played.

3:55 PM BBT – Meg says one of them are definitely going home and James says yep, but at least he’s always wanted to see the jury house.

3:57 PM BBT – Vanessa is giving Meg and James her reasons and in typical Vanessa fashion, she’s spazzy and none of her reasons are real reasons. Meg even says she’s lost.

So unless Vanessa realizes that James and Meg really aren’t her biggest concerns this week, one of them will go home. As of now Vanessa does realize Austin and the twins could stand in the way of her end-game, but she doesn’t seem too anxious to do anything about it just yet.
