It’s Day 3 of flip-flopping on who will go home this week in the Big Brother 17 house and it’s gotten so bad that the idea of deciding who goes based on the game Rock-Paper-Scissors was brought up. And yes, they were serious.

Talk later turned to just letting everyone vote how they want and not even tell anyone how they’re voting. This is my favorite idea, but with Vanessa in the house, this could never happen. It’s anyone’s guess who will be walking out the door Thursday night.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Wednesday, August 26, 2015:

9:30 AM BBT – Feeds are up and so are a few HGs. John is hanging around in the backyard.

11:45 AM BBT – BB calls a lockdown. HGs head inside. They’ll be there until after Thursday’s show.

12:10 PM BBT – Austin tells Vanessa his idea about having the eviction decided live on Thursday by having the noms play Rock Paper Scissors on the spot. Austin doesn’t think production could stop them from it if they decided that’s what they’d do during the live show.

12:30 PM BBT – Vanessa, Austin, and Meg continue to discuss the eviction vote and how they could do it. They consider just having everyone vote how they want instead of playing RPS. Vanessa then suggests maybe they should vote to keep whoever says they’ll throw the HoH comp. Of course Vanessa knows that would be John. Meg says Steve told her he would not throw the HoH comp.

12:50 PM BBT – Vanessa suggests whoever is evicted on Thursday night will be the one to return. (It hasn’t worked out like that the past few seasons though.)

1:40 PM BBT – Vanessa questions Steve and wants to know if she would have been the evicted HG last week if Becky had won the Veto. Steve says he doesn’t know. Vanessa leaves.

2:18 PM BBT – Meg tells James she’s not into the RPS voting idea. She says it will make them look like bullies. Meg is talking about how this could be a real vote (referring to the discussion that everyone should just secretly vote how they want).

2:36 PM BBT – Meg, James and John talk about what happened to the Takeover twist and wonder if it was dropped because America didn’t like it.

2:56 PM BBT – Vanessa still coming up with conspiracy theories. She wonders if Jackie and Jeff were actually married.

3:14 PM BBT – Liz and Austin talking about making sure Steve is cool with them in case he wins the next HOH. Austin also talks about how to make sure John will be OK with them if he gets evicted then wins the competition to come back in the game and then wins HOH. Liz doesn’t think John or Steve would win because they’d be too flustered after what had just gone down.

3:35 PM BBT – Meg and Vanessa are now discussing the vote. Meg says Steve might be harder to get out later because he’s been pretty good at fighting his way off the block. She says this might be their chance to get him out. Vanessa says she’s fine with with that and fine with either going. Meg wants to know if anyone feels strongly one way or the other Vanessa says just her because of her fight with Steve (so she prefers Steve to go). Vanessa is always up to something the past two days so she’s working on something to use against Meg here, surely.

3:37 PM BBT – Vanessa and Meg agree that Steve is very fake in the game and that neither of them have that skill like he does.

3:46 PM BBT – Vanessa is still bored so she goes to Austin and Liz to talk about whether or not Johnny Mac threw the POV. Austin says he’s not sure but maybe. Vanessa says it doesn’t make sense that JMac would’ve thrown the veto being up next to Becky (she has a feeling she was an actual backdoor plan, it seems). She wants to know if Steve is still not being honest with her.

3:48 PM BBT – Austin tells Vanessa that they need to come up with something to make sure John is OK with them if he gets evicted and then wins the comeback competition and HOH and comes after him. Vanessa is still wondering if Steve is still just being fake about everything. Vanessa can’t shake her Steve doubts.

3:50 PM BBT – Austin says it’ll be easy to get John out next week unless Becky comes back and makes them a strong duo. They are starting to annoy themselves and production with all the flip-flopping. Vanessa orders them to make up their mind and stop changing it.

3:57 PM BBT – It’s yoga time in the living room.

I still can’t conclude as to what’s going to happen tomorrow night. It always seems like Johnny Mac has the most potential to be evicted, but Vanessa is still pretty upset with Steve. But then she turns and contradicts herself, so we’re left scratching our heads.
