It was quite a busy and crazy night in the Big Brother 17 house following the double eviction as the house adjusted to what just went down and prepared for the next Head of Household.
When the Live Feeds returned with the second HOH results, we learned that the Sixth Sense alliance (they’re going to need a new name) has regained power.
Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Thursday, August 13, 2015:
7:10 PM BBT – Feeds return to John sitting alone in silence. Few HGs gathered in the bathroom.
7:15 PM BBT – Goblins continue to sit in complete shock.
7:20 PM BBT – Becky talking to Austin about the shock of Steve’s decisions. She says Steve has no one behind with him. Becky says this to Austin.
7:35 PM BBT – James and Meg believe this was all planned by Austin and Vanessa. They say those two are trouble.
7:45 PM BBT – Steve warns Vanessa and twins that this will likely be a Days comp so they can start to study and prepare.
7:55 PM BBT – John gets permission from Steve to tell HGs that Steve asked him not to use the Veto during the DE. Steve says yes since that’s the truth.
8:10 PM BBT – Becky thinks Austin is throwing comps and can do much better than he is letting on.
8:15 PM BBT – John and Becky talk in the Lounge. He tells her about Steve asking him not to use the Veto. He thinks Becky or James would have gone up. Becky asks John to come tell the Goblins that info.
8:25 PM BBT – James realizes that if you make a deal with Austin and Vanessa that you’ll be at the bottom of their priority list.
8:35 PM BBT – John is in with the Goblins and Becky. They’re trying to figure out what went wrong. Meanwhile the other side is busily studying dates. They were told by Liz about thinking it’ll be Days, but Meg thinks that happens at the end, not now.
8:40 PM BBT – Becky says they’ll need to get Steve on their side to have the votes to influence anything. Steve is actively in the other room hanging out with Austin and Vanessa. Oops.
8:50 PM BBT – Steve arrives in HN room. He tells Meg he had never connected with Jackie and was told she was coming after him. Meg swears Jackie was never coming after Steve. Becky warns him whoever told him that was pushing a hidden agenda.
9:00 PM BBT – Meg suggests whoever lied to Steve tried to set him up to be the distracting target for the Goblins. Steve seems to be pretending and believing them. Becky asks who told him, but he won’t name names and says she can guess.
9:18 PM BBT – Feeds cut for HoH competition.
10:14 PM BBT – Feeds return. Meg isn’t happy.
10:15 PM BBT – Julia comes out of the toilet and is greeted by Liz. They start jumping up and down and celebrating. Liz has the HOH key around her neck.
10:23 PM BBT – Vanessa and Julia are celebrating Liz’s win. Vanessa already talking about HER plans for this week. She thinks Becky needs to go so that she and Jackie are in jury together and only one can return. Vanessa says if they play their cards right this week they are a lock for final five.
10:25 PM BBT – Liz comes in and Vanessa gives her a hug. More celebrating among the three of them.
10:26 PM BBT – Steve comes in the room to celebrate as well (because “Freaks & Geeks” alliance is real, Steve. Sure it is).
10:28 PM BBT – Meg and Becky talk about how they thought Johnny Mac had it. Guess he almost won.
10:35 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Steve and Johnny Mac they’re safe (as if she’s the HOH).
10:48 PM BBT – Vanessa keeps trying to get John to agree to a deal. She tells him that they need to work with Steve so it’s 3/3/3 (as if she’s not a part of one of those 3s). She tells John again that he’s safe this week but now adds even if you go up.
10:52 PM BBT – Becky is upset and worried. She says she’s so sick of the game and that ever since the house changed their mind on Vanessa, her game has been on a downward spiral.
11:07 PM BBT – Vanessa suggests Liz put up Becky and John because Becky can win a veto but John could beat her. And if Becky wins veto, then they can backdoor James.
11:13 PM BBT – Becky tells John and Steve that she’s going home this week for her failed attempt at taking out Vanessa.
11:14 PM BBT – They’ve seemingly decided on Becky and John as nominees so now they’re discussing deals they can make with Meg and James for the following week.
11:20 PM BBT – Vanessa wants to make a 6-person deal with James and Meg. Then as an alternate they’ll make a 6-person deal with Steve and John.
11:35 PM BBT – Austin says if anything goes wrong with their plan they’ll just BD James.
12:00 AM BBT – Have-Nots have ended, for the week.
12:24 AM BBT – Steve got his HoH basket of goodies. HGs checking out his pictures.
1:45 AM BBT – Liz announces her HoH room is ready.
2:10 AM BBT – Vanessa wants Liz to tell Becky that she’s not making any deals to get back at her for saying that to Vanessa.
2:20 AM BBT – James and Meg are in the HoH room talking through making themselves good with the power this week.
2:35 AM BBT – Becky finally gets up to the HoH room and talk with Liz.
2:40 AM BBT – Back downstairs Meg decides she can trust Austin and his allies after all. James agrees saying Austin knows he and Meg were helping them so they’ll do the same.
2:50 AM BBT – Becky continues to work on Austin and Liz upstairs. She says she didn’t tell JMac about the 8-HG deal and it must have been Vanessa. Becky starts to explain what she knows about the plan to BD Austin the other week. She uses cereal to explain.
3:10 AM BBT – Becky’s plan may have actually worked. Austin thinks maybe they need to keep Becky to help take care of Vanessa and they should target JMac this week instead. He says they’ll just have to tell Vanessa she’s good with them, but they’re going to do this other plan instead.
3:20 AM BBT – Vanessa is back upstairs. She asks what Becky talked about, Austin denies any real game talk. (Ohh.) Vanessa says they have to come up with a new alliance name for Freaks & Geeks. (That was a TV show.) Liz had suggested “Nerd Herd” not knowing about S6. They go with “Scamper Squad” and do a dance that’s as cheesy as you’re probably imagining.
So Vanessa’s side has the power again this week, but how much longer will they remain Vanessa’s side? Austin doesn’t seem ready to go after Vanessa head on, but he may be willing to let someone else take her out.
Nominations ceremony coming up later on Friday and then Veto will be played out on Saturday. We’ll need to get through both of those to see which of the “others” will be taken out this week.
