It was a calm and quiet morning building up to the action, but now we’ve got three more days of maneuvering from one of the sneakiest players this season. I don’t think she’s going to disappoint.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Monday, August 10, 2015:

9:15 AM BBT – HGs getting up for the day and are on the move. John and Becky chatting up the upcoming craziness.

9:35 AM BBT – John waited for Vanessa to take a shower then sent Austin up to see Becky. Becky warns him what she’s about to do with the Vanessa renom.

9:45 AM BBT – Becky tells Austin she doesn’t need their votes to evict Vanessa so he should do what’s best for him and the twins. She says he can deny he knew and she’ll cover for him.

10:10 AM BBT – Austin is back downstairs. He tells Meg then Jackie that he knows what’s going on. Austin gives Liz a heads up that something is going to go down.

11:02 AM BBT – Feeds return. Vanessa accusing Shelli of knowing. Shelli is the only one there to comfort Vanessa as she suggests Shelli knew and hid it from her. Well, yeah, but still.

11:05 AM BBT – Becky talking to the Austwins upstairs and explaining her decision.

11:10 AM BBT – Vanessa says she knew there would be a BD because production woke them up early. (It wasn’t that early for this season.)

11:20 AM BBT – Tears have arrived for Vanessa as Shelli continues to console her.

11:30 AM BBT – Vanessa is so upset that Becky lied to her in that conversation where Vanessa was lying to Becky.

11:35 AM BBT – Austwins have arrived. They all immediately deny knowing. At least 2 of the 3 did.

11:40 AM BBT – Moments after promising not to campaign against Shelli, Vanessa says she’s going to campaign really hard but won’t say anything bad about Shelli.

11:45 AM BBT – Austin and Steve run through the vote and realize Vanessa has no shot with the tie going to Becky. Vanessa is done.

11:52 AM BBT – Vanessa goes to find Becky. She wants answers. Becky says she’ll tell her why, but that’s it then she’s done. Becky explains how Vanessa was forcing loyalty in group settings by pointing at each of them and demanding their loyalty to her plans. Becky gets up and leaves as Vanessa starts crying.

11:55 AM BBT – Vaness goes inside and cries telling HGs that Becky was pointing and yelling at her. Both were elevated in their talk, but there was no yelling by either of them.

12:00 PM BBT – Vanessa goes to the HN room to find James, Meg, and Becky. There are no sympathetic ears in that room. She cries and says Becky attacked her. No one gets up or pays much attention. Vanessa escalates her game. She starts to tell them all the things Becky did and said over the past few weeks. Jackie shuts her down saying they already knew and they’re close now.

12:10 PM BBT – Vanessa has left, but James is actually thinking about what she just said and how Becky was considering making James a target. It seems that Vanessa got her hooks in him, but just how deep?

12:12 PM BBT – James is still thinking about Becky. Jackie tells him not to get hung up on that because they were trying to turn Becky against them and Becky was vulnerable. James agrees, but still seems to be worried about Becky.

12:16 PM BBT – Becky goes into the Have-Not room to tell James, Jackie and Meg her side of the story about her talk with Vanessa. Becky retells it more accurately than Vanessa did. They tell Becky that Vanessa said she yelled at her and pointed her finger at her. Becky laughs at Vanessa’s exaggerations. Becky explains that she pointed her finger at Vanessa to show her how Vanessa had pointed her finger at her when they were all forced into the target Shelli and John agreement. Liz is in on the conversation, laughing and making fun of the situation.

12:20 PM BBT – Vanessa has been called to the Diary Room so even Austin joins the Vanessa talk in the have-not room.

12:29 PM BBT – Austin talking to Liz in the storage room. They talk about breaking their plan with that side of the house during the double eviction. They don’t want to target Shelli. Austin says since Becky broke her plan with Vanessa, then they won’t feel bad about breaking theirs.

12:39 PM BBT – Becky about Vanessa: “It sucks being next to your friends on the block. Thanks for teaching me that trick!”

12:48 PM BBT – HGs talking about Steve hiding out in the lounge to avoid drama. John says he’s playing it smart.

1:08 PM BBT – Jackie tells Meg that they have to play it smart. They have to law low this week, then target Shelli and then they’ll have all the numbers they need.

1:35 PM BBT – Vanessa breaks out the Bible and is reading in bed.

2:15 PM BBT – HGs are just hanging out outside in the pool. No game talk at the moment.

2:38 PM BBT – Johnny Mac and Shelli talking game. John says he feels expendable because no one talks game with him. He feels like he might be taken out before the two sides go for each other.

2:44 PM BBT – John explains to Shelli why he doesn’t trust Vanessa. He also tells her he would nominated the twins and backdoor Austin.

3:10 PM BBT – Shelli tells Vanessa that everyone, including her, was going to put her on the block. Vanessa says, yeah, but they would’ve had the votes to keep her.

3:12 PM BBT – Shelli tells Vanessa that people don’t care about breaking their word in the house (including Vanessa). Vanessa agrees, ignoring that she has broken her word in the house. Vanessa tells Shelli that everything she agreed to and did this week was to ensure that Shelli would stay and John would go.

3:17 PM BBT – Vanessa asks Shelli if she really thinks Austin and the twins didn’t know. Vanessa thinks they did. Shelli says she doesn’t think so, but has to wonder herself.

3:30 PM BBT – Vanessa asks Austin and Liz if they think she forced Becky to give her word last week? They say know that Becky willingly agreed. Vanessa says that Becky just had to come up with a reason to put her up over John (that sounds familiar, Vanessa).

3:33 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Austin that he is next and if he shouldn’t think otherwise.

3:37 PM BBT – Vanessa says to Austin “I made it happen for you” when he was against the wall and tells him to do the same for her. She tells Liz that she’s protected her also, so she needs to help her. They know they need one more person to make sure it’s not a tie.

3:45 PM BBT – Vanessa says she was fine until Becky was mean to her and now her feelings are hurt. Austin and Liz leave to figure out a way to save Vanessa.

3:47 PM BBT – Austin tells Liz that he doesn’t think he is the next target. He thinks they’ll still be going for Shelli or Steve next. Liz says that she’s not sticking to the plan if she wins during the DE. She says she’ll target Becky, James and company. Liz also says she’s not doing Vanessa’s dirty work for her. She and Austin agree that she got herself into this mess and she can get her out. They talk about why she thinks they owe her.

3:49 PM BBT – Austin: “I understand why Becky did it.” Liz talks about all the reasons Becky gave them for why she decided to target Vanessa. Austin says Vanessa should have just kept quiet. He says she talked to much. They talk about how annoying it is that she’s reading and quoting the Bible.

3:54 PM BBT – James says he would nominate a twin and Shelli so that they’d be forced to vote out Shelli. Jackie and Meg talk about winning the HOH after the double eviction and hope Steve wins the won before it (not sure why they want Steve to).

4:00 PM BBT – Jackie, Meg and James go to check on Becky. They say they have to have her back after the huge move she made today.

So Vanessa is scrambling and Shelli is feeling more and more safe. It’s sounding like Vanessa doesn’t stand a chance this week. Meanwhile, Austin and the twins are preparing to turn on their deal during the double eviction coming up this week. Expect a lot more drama this week as it all unfolds.
