A lot has changed in 24 hours in the Big Brother 17 house, but it wouldn’t be the Big Brother house if that wasn’t the case.

Yesterday it was almost certain that Vanessa would be heading home first this Thursday, but now The Goblins have realized that keeping Shelli in the game benefits Becky, but leaves them vulnerable. So a lot of the day, James, Meg and Jackie talked about why and how they should keep Vanessa.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Tuesday, August 11, 2015:

9:45 AM BBT – John is the first up and grabbing breakfast.

11:00 AM BBT – Vanessa says her eyes are swollen from an allergic reaction and definitely not from crying.

11:45 AM BBT – Vanessa complains that Becky is cold, heartless, and calculated in this game.

12:00 PM BBT – Vanessa came back inside now that the HoH camera is out. Says she can’t fake it with Becky because she’s not phony. Vanessa is waiting for Becky to apologize to her.

12:13 PM BBT – Vanessa asks Steve if she has his vote. He asks her to give him until tonight. She tells Steve that if she doesn’t  have the votes two hours before the eviction, he can vote her out to watch out for his game. She is riding Steve pretty hard and treating him pretty unfairly. She reminds him that she’s the only one who has been keeping him informed in the game (which isn’t true, but some might say she’s using bullying tactics).

12:27 PM BBT – Steve asks John if he’s sure the Goblins are voting to evict Vanessa. John says yes.

12:55 PM BBT – Goblins talk about the vote this week. James says he was feeling out Becky last night and she won’t want to budge on Vanessa. He says that’s great for her game, but not theirs – his in particular. He knows Shelli will be coming for him. They talk about making a deal with Vanessa for the entire group. They wonder if Becky would hold a grudge against them if the flip on her. They decide to talk to Austin to see what he thinks.

1:10 PM BBT – Sounds like James, Meg and Jackie are really leaning toward keeping Vanessa over Shelli.

1:30 PM BBT – HGs here noises outside the fence. Feeds cut. But it was nothing.

1:43 PM BBT – James says he knows Shelli took back Clay’s shirt because DR asked him about it (they’re seemingly trying to stir trouble with Shelli and James). He says that they’re all grow-ups and she could have just asked him for the shirt.

1:53 PM BBT – James and Meg saying  how much they believe what Vanessa told them yesterday after her showdown with Becky. James: “200%.” They talk about how Becky is sitting pretty with all the money she’s won and what little blood she has on her hands. James wonders why Becky took so long to let them in on her secrets. Vanessa has really got them paranoid about Becky. Good job, Vanessa.

2:00 PM BBT – Meg and James have concluded that Becky wants to keep Shelli around so she can take them out and Becky can sit back and let it happen.

2:09 PM BBT – Meg tells James they need to be a little careful what they say around Jackie because she’s close to Becky. They get paranoid because Jackie is talking to Becky in the HOH room.

2:40 PM BBT – James and Jackie now talking about being worried over Shelli staying. So it sounds like Jackie supports their idea to save Vanessa over Shelli.

3:28 PM BBT – James, Meg and Jackie are now talking outside. They are still unsure what to do this week, but plan to start feeling out other people. They talk about how weird the vibe is in the house.

3:36 PM BBT – Meg says Shelli knows too much about the game and knows what days everything happened on. James says that’s why she has to go this week.

It’s starting to sound like Vanessa will make it this week, but there’s still a whole day before eviction, so things are likely to change 10 more times before the actual eviction. But one thing is for sure, the Live Feeds will surely be interesting.
