Another Big Brother 17 day, another exaggerated Vanessa target. Who is it this time? Well, it’s Johnny Mac, of course. Vanessa has now concluded that he has a “mood disorder” and spat rage at her today.

So it should come as no surprise that Liz nominated John and Becky for eviction. And while the target was originally Becky, it’s quickly shifting to John, even though Vanessa swore on everything he wouldn’t go anywhere this week). So in summary: just another week in the Big Brother 17 house with Vanessa running things.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Friday, August 14, 2015:

9:55 AM BBT – HGs are up and getting ready for Nominations Day.

11:00 AM BBT – Liz camtalks saying she’s sure she’ll put up John and Becky as her noms. She hopes it’s the right choice.

11:50 AM BBT – Liz and Austin say they’re still interested in keeping Becky to go after Vanessa. They decide to tell both Becky & John that they’re safe so they can decide later who to send out if things change.

12:36 PM BBT – Have-Not food revealed. “Pork Slops.” It’s pork chops as the additional food. Few weeks ago the HNs had lollipops. This week they get an actual meat/protein source? Okay then. Vanessa, Steve, and John are picked/volunteered.

12:38 PM BBT – Production leak of staff stocking the SR. Camera 1.

12:43 PM BBT – Julia warns Liz that Austin may be pushing to VTE John because Austin thinks John is coming after him.

12:50 PM BBT – Austin thanks Becky for all the info she brought them last night. He says it really has changed things for them.

1:10 PM BBT – John tells Vanessa he heard her tell Chelli about the 8-HG deal to target them. This sets Vanessa off on a 45-minute mission. She denies, denies, denies. John says okay, but he heard her.

1:20 PM BBT – Goblins upstairs with Becky and Austwins. Goblins spilling their guts on the week Vanessa got James to try and throw the comp. They reveal how Vanessa pulled them in the HoH room and told them what was going on so they followed along. Meg also mentions how Vanessa tried to make deals during the live DE. Austwins are shocked by all of this.

1:30 PM BBT – Vanessa leaves HN room so John decides to follow her. She pulls Steve in and basically accuses Steve of telling JMac about the 8-HG deal. John busts in on the conversation and acts like nothing is going on. JMac doesn’t care. Vanessa starts tearing in to John. Steve asks if he can leave. Vanessa tells him “no” and turns back to berating John.

1:50 PM BBT – John tells Vanessa he felt bullied by her blow up at Clay where she interrogated him demanding answers. He doesn’t mention how she accused him of being Clay’s “gay lover.”

1:58 PM BBT – John tells Vanessa he doesn’t like it when she cries and yells at people. He says she did that to him. Vanessa says she’s sorry he feels that way and walks out.

1:59 PM BBT – Feeds cut for nomination ceremony.

3:08 PM BBT – Feeds return. Becky and John were nominated. Austin and the twins are saying Johnny Mac has  gone crazy (based on what Vanessa has told them).

3:12 PM BBT – Julia calls John weird and Liz says she hates him and wants him gone this week. Liz talks about how Austin does all of her dirty work.

3:20 PM BBT – Julia tells Liz not to let Austin run her HOH. She says he didn’t win the HOH so he has no say in anything. But Julia is softening to Austin especially since she’s now onto Vanessa and not happy with her.

3:29 PM BBT – Liz and Julia are going all over the place. Now Liz wants Julia to smooth things over and after saying the love James and Meg, they’re talking about backdooring James. They want to make bold moves.

3:32 PM BBT – The twins are upset with Vanessa but they say she hasn’t given them enough reason to evict her (I guess being poised to win $500K isn’t a big enough reason). They agree that everyone else is going after Vanessa so they don’t have to.

3:40 PM BBT – Julia and Liz suspect America loves John and now they’re afraid to talk badly about him.

3:46 PM BBT – Vanessa doesn’t understand why Becky and John doesn’t like her. She says that John had “red rage” in his face today (yeah, just like when Becky yelled at her and pointed her finger at her outside). Vanessa says John doesn’t handle rings with class.

3:47 PM BBT – Steve and John have been talking about how to make sure John stays this week. John wants to know if he should pick Steve to play in veto if he gets HG choice. Steve tells him to let him check first if he’s allowed to use the veto on John (this, folks, is a “super fan”).

3:55 PM BBT – Steve goes up to the HOH room. Austin tells Steve that John has gone rogue this week and they want to know his take on the situation. For some reason they think Steve is actually going to talk game. Steve tells them to talk to John. Liz asks what John has said since he’s been put up. Steve says he’s just napping and that he thinks he needs to win the veto. Vanessa doesn’t understand why he’s so paranoid (WHY WOULDN’T HE BE NERVOUS? He is the target).

3:58 PM BBT – Vanessa is again saying he has problems with his emotions (HAHAHAHA, yeah only John has that problem, Vanessa). She continues exaggerating her talk with John and for some reason thinks she doesn’t deserve any of it.

So Vanessa is keeping the Live Feeds interesting, but for a lot of fans on social media, her actions are getting to the point of unbearablility. Here’s to hoping Johnny Mac’s veto competition prowess continues so he can further complicated things for whatever the Sixth Sense alliance are calling themselves these days. That’s when the Live Feeds are at their best.
