A lot has changed in the Big Brother 17 house since Monday night. For one, Vanessa is no longer bed-ridden and crying. Instead, she’s up and laughing.
And she has a few sneaky goblins to thank for her new cheery disposition. Yes, you’ve got it, the house has flipped. Will it flip back before Thursday night? Who knows.

Becky gets scared and starts reminding Meg how big a risk she took lying to Vanessa and then putting her on the block. She’s freaking out a bit but Meg tells her not to. Becky says she trusted her group to vote Vanessa out so that’s why she did it the way she did (blindsiding Vanessa).

So right now it’s looking like Vanessa will stay at least during the first eviction this week. But Becky and Shelli have grown suspicious so look for some hard campaigning to go on throughout Wednesday.
