10:00 PM BBT – HGs playing blowing. Nothing else going on.

11:25 PM BBT – Vanessa is getting impatient about knowing how the votes are going to fall. She ask Julia when she will know and says she wants it to be soon.

12:40 AM BBT – Shelli goes to the HOH to talk to Becky, Jackie and Meg to try one final push to stay. She tells them she would put up Austin and a twin if she wins HOH. Shelli promises if they vote to keep her she won’t put them up. She seems to be weary about including James in the deal, but she kind of has to.

12:46 AM BBT – Shelli reminds the three of them that Vanessa and Austin have put them and their friends up but she never has. She says it just doesn’t make sense why they would want to keep Vanessa.

1:27 AM BBT – Austin says he won’t lie to Meg, after Vanessa goes after Becky & a floater then she’ll probably be coming after the Goblins next. Meg nods & smiles along.

1:45 AM BBT – Becky has been campaigning hard for Shelli. She wants James to make a choice, but he escapes the conversation.

2:05 AM BBT – Meg joins the talk. Becky presses her to evict Vanessa. Meg says Vanessa will be easy to get out when they want. She also thinks the Austwins will be easy to beat.

2:35 AM BBT – James and Meg alone reaffirm voting out Shelli. They’re frustrated with Becky and say they wouldn’t mind if Austwins gets Becky out.

2:45 AM BBT – Vanessa promises Jackie the Goblins will be safe with her. Says she has no control over the Austwins and doesn’t even know where their game is.

3:00 AM BBT – Jackie tells Steve she’d target Vanessa in the second round of a DE.

3:05 AM BBT – Jackie, back with the Goblins, says she think Steve would target Austin and Vanessa.

3:35 AM BBT – Meg wonders if someone will win HoH on Thursday and they’ll be screwed. The Goblins all laugh. Meg asks what if Austin and Steve have secretly been working together this whole time. They all laugh real hard again.

The Goblins are sticking to their evict-Shelli plan with very few concerns on keeping Vanessa. Like their plan or not, it is based on thoroughly flawed and inaccurate assessments of the game right now. They’ll need luck on their side because logic isn’t helping.
