It was the first night on the Big Brother 17 Live Feeds without Audrey, so how did the drama hold up without her? Not too bad, actually.

Vanessa and Jackie had to figure out what they’re going to do as Heads of Household and things aren’t looking too great for Austin, especially after Vanessa caught him in a lie.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Thursday, July 23, 2015:


7:05 PM BBT – Feeds return and HGs are discussing the excitement. Meg thought this was going to be her comp to win.

7:10 PM BBT – Becky confirms that Have-Nots end that night at midnight. It was a short run. (Really short for one of them.)

7:20 PM BBT – Steve camtalking and feels good that Jackie would put up Austin and Liz instead of him.

7:30 PM BBT – Becky says Audrey was turning off the lights on her when she was trying to sort her laundry. She promised to turn it off when she was done, but Audrey turned it off three times on her. She was annoyed.

7:35 PM BBT – HGs scrambling to figure out the hinky vote. Austin sits quietly and listens. He told Liz and Julia, so it might not spread.

8:00 PM BBT – Becky is cleaning up the HN room and all the trash Audrey left behind her chair and floor sleeping spot including half eaten food. Delightful.

8:05 PM BBT – Meg and Jason discuss wanting Jackie to stay the HoH so they can get Austin out thinking Vanessa wouldn’t do it.

8:40 PM BBT – Jason says he’s convinced that Steve is throwing all these HOH competitions. Shelli agrees.

8:50 PM BBT – Vanessa and Jackie discussing nominations. Jackie says Liz would be an easy choice for her since she nominated her last week. She says she would put Steve up next to Liz. They agree not to backdoor each other after Battle of the Block dethrones one of them. Jackie tells Vanessa that she’d like to remain HOH and Vanessa says that’s cool with her.

9:00 PM BBT – Jackie says instead of targeting the twins they could get rid of Austin and that would leave the twins alone in the game.

9:15 PM BBT – Jackie and Vanessa have come up with a preliminary plan. Vanessa would nominate Becky and Clay and Jackie could nominate Liz and Steve, hoping Liz and Steve lose BOB. So then the veto could be used on Steve and Austin would be backdoored next to Liz.

10:16 PM BBT – It’s HOH reveal time. HGs check out Jackie and Vanessa’s photos. HGs stick around to hear them read their HOH letters.

10:48 PM BBT – Jason and Austin are discussing Steve. Jason says he would not want to be in jury with Steve. They talk about the possibility of Steve going this week.

10:50 PM BBT – Vanessa is telling Austin and Julia that Jackie thinks she’s OK with getting dethroned this week but she’s 100 percent not OK with it. She tells them that she will update them at the end of the night on everything. Also, Austin lies to her about what he told Jason about the twins and Vanessa knows it. She tells him to never lie to her and he says he won’t.

10:56 PM BBT – Austin leaves the room and Vanessa looks at the camera and says he just lied to me. She asks “why did he have to lie to me?”

11:10 PM BBT – Becky is giving Jackie HOH advice.

11:15 PM BBT – Jason and Meg discussing what might happen this week and how safe or at risk they are.

11:16 PM BBT – Clay and Shelli go up to talk to Vanessa. She tells them that she’s stressed out. Vanessa tells them that Jackie wants to work with them so they shouldn’t worry. But she tells them about Austin lying to her about what he told Jason about the twins. She tells them that she can’t trust him so she can’t work with him. But she’s worried that he has so much information on them. She tells Clay and Shelli that Jackie wants to put up Austin and Liz. They discuss a way to move forward that might not include Austin.

11:21 PM BBT – Jackie comes up to the HOH room and joins the conversation. Jackie tells them that Austin is the person she’d like to go home. But she’d rather have him as a backdoor option, but if that’s not possible then Liz going is as good a target.

11:23 PM BBT – Austin comes up to talk to Jackie so she leaves the room to talk to him. Shelli tells Vanessa and Clay that Jackie winning HOH was good because now they can all get her in their circle. They talk about working with Jason and Meg and James in case they have to let go of Austin and the twins.

12:20 AM BBT – HGs agree that John has earned a week of rest from the Block.

12:40 AM BBT – Vanessa explains to Julia how Austin revealed the twins to Jason. Julia isn’t surprised and suspected she was expendable once they were both in the game.

12:55 AM BBT – Vanessa told Becky the plan to target Austin. Becky agrees to go up as a pawn to work with Clay to win the BotB so Vanessa can be unseated and Jackie remain as HoH.

1:10 AM BBT – Vanessa explains to James, Jason, and Meg who she and Jackie want to target Austin this week.

1:30 AM BBT – Jason tells Jackie about Julia. Jackie had been a hold out on believing it.

1:35 AM BBT – James agrees to go up as a nom alongside Liz so he can throw the comp and keep her on the Block.

1:40 AM BBT – HGs form a F8 group. Vanessa, Jackie, Clay, Shelli, Meg, Jason, James, and Becky. Ridiculous.

2:10 AM BBT – Austin volunteers to go up as a nom for Vanessa to throw BotB since he’s expecting Jackie to nom Liz.

2:20 AM BBT – Vanessa tells Shelli, Clay, Becky, and Jackie that Austin said he didn’t want to go up and that she should nom Clay instead. Austin had actually volunteered.

4:25 AM BBT – Julia explained to Vanessa that it was Austin who voted to keep Audrey in a bid to frame Steve. In exchange, Vanessa tells Julia about the plan to go after Austin.

Well Austin could be done here if he doesn’t pull off a Veto win on Saturday, but if he’s not on the Block his chances are limited, though not impossible to get a spot in the comp. If Julia remains on the Block and he gets to play for Veto then you’ll see him fight like crazy though to win it so he can be the hero.
