It wouldn’t be Big Brother 17 if the Houseguests didn’t do the opposite of what the majority of the fans think they should do and here we’re set to go again this week.

Yes, I’m talking about keeping Liz. Throughout the day and night, everyone but Steve was in on the plan to keep Liz. Vanessa used the idea to strike a deal with Austin and Liz, even though Liz swears to Julia she will no longer honor any plan with Vanessa. Read on to get the details from the night’s events.

Big Brother 17 Live Feed Highlights – Tuesday, September 8, 2015:


(note: The Live Feeds clock has been off by several minutes today, so flashback times could be off for 9/8 events but the clock was reset on midnight 9/9.)

5:50 PM BBT – Austin updates Liz that Vanessa says she’ll keep Liz if Steve says it’s okay. Austin says he’ll pressure Steve, who doesn’t have a vote, to agree with keeping Liz.

6:00 PM BBT – Vanessa starts asking Julia about them wanting Liz to stay. Vanessa gives reasons why it’d be better for Julia to stay. Vanessa again promises to vote to keep Liz if Steve gives his blessing

6:30 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Austin she’ll do it, but it puts her in a bad spot at F3. Says they’ll need to give her a nice Christmas for doing this. (Maybe they can drop off her presents at the manor?)

6:40 PM BBT – Vanessa has three terms to keep Liz: can’t be original nom but can be renom, gets to pick if Steve or John goes next week, and if Liztin doesn’t make it to F3 with her then the surviving member has to take her. Lots of smiles and nods from Liz and Austin.

7:00 PM BBT – Feeds are down for HGs to get Chinese food. Kinda silly to take down the Feeds for eating food, but that’s what they’re doing.

7:25 PM BBT – Feeds return. HGs have eaten.

8:02 PM BBT – Vanessa tells everyone there is a bat in the backyard.

8:39 PM BBT – Vanessa tells Austin and Liz that it’s actually good for Liz to stay because if John wins HOH and nominates them and one of them goes, she’d still have a strong ally. Vanessa is being Vanessa and tells them that this shows just how loyal Vanessa is and she expects it in return. Vanessa also tells them that Steve has made some strategic mistakes and it would be better to get rid of Steve next over John.

8:42 PM BBT – Liz, Austin and Vanessa swear allegiance to one another (Still part of Austin’s test or do they have no other choice at the moment?)

8:50 PM BBT – Vanessa, Austin and Liz worry about the reset from last season, especially since all the takeover twists were dropped. Vanessa says she wouldn’t push the button. Austin said he would if he was nominated.

9:25 PM BBT – Time for Johnny Mac and Steve to talk game in the hammock. John says if he wins HOH he’s putting up Austin and whatever twin is left. Steve confirms to Johnny Mac that the Scamper Squad was a thing. John knew from Liz’s nomination speech during the double eviction.

9:30 PM BBT – Steve tells John that he HAS to win the next HOH. John is wishy-washy like always and Steve seems a bit annoyed and says he shouldn’t have thrown the last HOH then. They start studying for any kind of days comp.

9:35 PM BBT – Liz and Austin exchange “love yous” (eek).

9:53 PM BBT – Vanessa now talking to John about keeping Liz. She is still acting like she’s with John, so she must feel pretty covered from all angles now. Just like that Johnny Mac is on board to keep Liz. Whatever Vanessa says goes, as always.

10:08 PM BBT – Vanessa and John say they have to make sure that Steve isn’t upset with Julia going over Liz.

10:28 PM BBT – Liz tells Julia about Vanessa’s three terms for keeping her. She calls them ridiculous. Sounds like Liz still might not be as devoted to Vanessa as she was before.

10:30 PM BBT – And Liz confirms to Julia that she’s not sticking to anything she told Vanessa. Julia is really upset with Vanessa. Liz has to quiet her down.

10:35 PM BBT – Liz thinks Julia should still let Vanessa have it on Thursday but Austin is poo-pooing the idea.

10:43 PM BBT – Julia tells Liz that she and Austin need to get to the final 3 with John. She says Steve needs to go next then Vanessa.

10:45 PM BBT – Austin and John agree to keep each other next week. They’ve made a F4 deal.

10:50 PM BBT – Austin goes to the twins and lets them know John is on board with keeping Liz and he’s on to what Vanessa has been doing. They’re planning a talk for later with Steve included. (That talk doesn’t happen overnight since John fell asleep.)

11:00 PM BBT – Julia is excited by the idea of how Liz staying will be worst case for Steve. She’s happy to see Vanessa’s game in trouble too.

11:35 PM BBT – Liz tells Julia she’s determined to get Steve out and would rather let Vanessa win than Steve. They’d vote for Vanessa over John or Steve at the end just to see a girl win.

12:00 AM BBT – Steve in chatting with the twins and aspects of the game, but not game talk.

12:15 AM BBT – Shifting to game talk, Julia promises Steve that Liz isn’t coming after him if she stays.

1:40 AM BBT – Steve and Vanessa are outside talking about the Liz situation. Vanessa worries they’re crazy for keeping Liz. Steve is stressing this choice. Vanessa tells Steve the Austwins want to target Steve next week.

2:11 AM BBT – Steve and Austin talk. Austin asks Steve to be supportive of the twins and what they decide on who should stay. They promise to vote to keep the other if one is on the Block. Their plan to talk together with John is scuttled since John went to sleep.

2:16 AM BBT – Steve is upstairs watching Vanessa and Austin talking on the HoH spyscreen. He’s seriously stressing out that they’re having a long talk. Steve is confident he’s the next target and is extremely suspicious that Austin and Vanessa are making the same deals and agreements he’s made with them. Steve believes Vanessa is safe next week no matter how this plays out.

What a mess. Vanessa agreeing to keep Liz? This is a bad move for everyone except Austin so kudos to him and shame on the rest. Wednesday should be interesting as talks will shift to setting up the plans for next week’s target.
