It was an interesting evening in the Big Brother 17 house as Jackie and Vanessa’s Battle of the Block plan backfired and left the wrong HoH in power to take out this week’s target

Austin remains the target, but now Vanessa has to be the one to get the blood of her once closest ally on her hands. Clay, who is beating himself up over losing yet another competition, will now have to work on winning Veto to secure his safety this week and help see the backdoor Austin plan come to fruition.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Friday, July 24, 2015:

4:50 PM BBT – Houseguests are lounging around waiting to get the BotB on the road when Feeds finally cut to Jeff Loops.

6:55 PM BBT – Feeds are back and that didn’t go to plan. Clay & Becky lost the BotB so Vanessa is stuck as HoH. Now she’ll have to target Austin herself if she wants that to happen.

7:00 PM BBT – Vanessa confirms that she still wants to press ahead on targeting Austin for eviction.

7:10 PM BBT – Vanessa worries that Austin is on to them that something is up and she thinks he’ll know it had to do with her.

7:25 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Jackie she has enough ammo to take on Austin and get him evicted. She thinks it’s poetic that it’ll be her to send him out now.

8:00 PM BBT – Austin was telling Clay he thinks Liz may have been a target and James was trying to throw the comp (he was, dramatically so according to later retells).

8:01 PM BBT – Vanessa is worried about Austin confronting her. Meg and Jason are telling her that it doesn’t matter what Austin thinks this week because they have the numbers to get him out. Talk turns to Liz … HGs seem to like Julia more so they’re ready for the switch to happen again because it’ll be easier to get Austin out with Julia in the house.

8:17 PM BBT – Jackie and Vanessa tell Becky not to worry that the veto will be used no matter what and if Austin is the one who won veto, then Steve goes up.

8:28 PM BBT – Austin and Liz are talking about whether or not James threw the Battle of the Block. Liz thinks he threw it so she could get evicted. Austin says he thinks it’s just because he wanted Jackie to stay in power because he was afraid of what Vanessa might do (like backdoor Jason or someone close to James).

9:37 PM BBT – Austin is out of control. He’s telling Shelli and Clay that he knew both twins liked him so he had his choice of which one he wanted. He also says that he was told Jackie likes him.

9:48 PM BBT – Shelli assures Clay that anyone who would win veto (aside from Becky) would take him off the block.

10:05 PM BBT – Austin and Liz talking about protecting Vanessa because she’s been protecting them. Austin reminds Liz that Vanessa can’t know he voted to evict John this week (Vanessa knows, of course).

11:00 PM BBT – Jackie talking to Vanessa and Clay about the twins. She thinks they only have Austin in the game.

12:50 AM BBT – HGs goofing around and renaming everyone based on their memory wall photos along with new occupations.

1:20 AM BBT – Becky is frustrated by Liz and Austin who were celebrating in front of her after Battle of the Block. She’s concerned that James didn’t try very hard to throw it.

1:30 AM BBT – James, Jason, and Meg annoyed by Steve for listening in on conversations tonight.

2:00 AM BBT – Austin stole a kiss from Liz. She’s not thrilled.

2:15 AM BBT – Clay tells Steve he’s safe this week and not the target while admitting things hadn’t gone to plan.

2:40 AM BBT – Steve is camtalking. He overheard the complaints about him eavesdropping (heh) and feels stressed about it. Steve is trying to figure out what the original plan was and wonders if the twins were the target. Steve wants to win the Veto and save Clay.

Vanessa is stressing over Austin becoming aware of their plans. If she can keep him out of the Veto comp then she says they’ll have a clear path to getting him out of the house. Backup plan is likely still Steve, but you never know this far out.
