The Big Brother 17 Live Feeds last night could make someone dizzy as Austin continued to go back and forth on what should happen this week, but one thing is starting to become clear: Vanessa has gotten back into Austin’s head and has again secured her safety in the game.

Things aren’t looking too good for one of the fan favorites, Johnny Mac. There’s still veto to be played, but as of now Austin can’t think of a better target than him.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Friday, August 21, 2015:

4:00 PM BBT – The house is rather calm following the Nominations Ceremony. Meg working on baking.

5:45 PM BBT – HGs discussing possibility of Zingbot arriving this weekend. (Yep. He’ll be there on Saturday.) Hopefully Meg is joking when she asks if Zingbot is a real robot.

6:40 PM BBT – Liz and Vanessa talking in bathroom alone. Vanessa profusely thanks Liz for not letting her go up on the Block. Liz takes credit and also mentions Steve was throwing Vanessa under the bus to get her nominated instead of him. Vanessa says she is, was, and will always be loyal to them.

6:50 PM BBT – Upstairs, Liz and Austin hope Meg or James win the Veto so they don’t get any more blame. Austin says if John wins it then they’ll be okay too because he’ll be on their side.

6:55 PM BBT – HGs are all sleeping or laying in their beds.

7:13 PM BBT – Austin cam talks. He says he wants to stick with James and Meg because they have fun together. They want the Live Feeders to help them decide (believe us, we wish we could). Liz says they need to keep Vanessa because she’ll always be a target over them. They decide that James or Meg winning veto and not using it would be ideal.

7:23 PM BBT – Steve is also cam talking. He says he thinks John will go this week and then he will be next. He’s blaming Vanessa on getting in Austin’s head.

7:35 PM BBT – Steve is now checking in with Austin. He’s asking him if he trusts Vanessa again. Austin says he just wants to keep her one more week. Austin is defending Vanessa to Steve, but adds that she’s better as a backdoor option. This talk goes on for a long time. Steve is actually kind of riding Austin pretty hard and it’s great.

8:00 PM BBT – Steve asks Austin if he really has Vanessa’s vote this week. Austin says he definitely does.

8:25 PM BBT – Austin and Steve are discussing who in the season were fans of the show and who are recruits. Steve tells him that 10 of the 17 were recruits. Austin is surprised and asks what’s even the point of the application process.

8:46 PM BBT – Steve and Austin say there’s another twist this season that they aren’t supposed to talk about. Austin says it’s the reset (like the button from BB16?). Feeds cut.

9:50 PM BBT – Not much going on in the house now. HGs are eating around the new, smaller table.

10:00 PM BBT – Everyone is talking about Zingbot and how he’ll probably come tomorrow (today).

10:10 PM BBT – Time for another game of pot ball.

11:19 PM BBT –  Johnny Mac thinks the veto will be used regardless of who wins.

11:30 PM BBT – HGs playing candy wars again. Liz manages to break her mic in the process. Candy wars no more.

12:30 AM BBT – Twins agree that John needs to go so they can isolate Steve again. Liz suggests to Julia that DR told her John and Steve are closely working together.

12:55 AM BBT – James scares Julia by hiding in the closet and making noise then jumps out.

1:35 AM BBT – Austin and Liz take a break from making out. Austin starts to discuss Veto to hear what she thinks they should do, but they’ll talk more tomorrow.

Just as John blew the HoH competition by not trying because he thought all would throw it to him, he’s about to blow the Veto comp assuming everyone is still trying to BD Vanessa. Now Steve knows that’s not the case, but John is Steve’s competition for safety. We’ll have to wait and see if Steve warns him before the comp.
