A bad weekend is about to turn in to a bad week for Jeff Weldon on Big Brother 17 as Vanessa Rousso has shifted her targets from James Huling to her other least favorite Houseguest.

Originally Vanessa had been looking to go after James, but Austin appears to have won out in the debate as after today’s Power of Veto meeting the house is likely to have another target instead.

John pulled off a PoV victory yet again on Saturday and that’s going to be big for this week’s results. He’ll be safe and most definitely taking himself off the Block which means Vanessa will have to make a renom. Initially there was panic and chaos ringing in her ears over this decision but now she’s decided to make the most of it.

Forget about evicting James this week. Vanessa now wants Jeff gone and Austin couldn’t be happier. He wanted Jeff out after their continued distrust and just minutes after Austin won HoH he was plotting Jeff’s eviction. This couldn’t have worked out better for Austin.

Jackie had warned Jeff that Vanessa is dead set on getting him to the Block where she’ll do everything she can to make sure he’s evicted from Big Brother this week. This prompted Jeff to make at least two trips to the HoH room on Sunday to plead his case. Vanessa was aggressive enough that she should really hope he’s not waking up there on Friday morning. Flashback to 2:35PM BBT 7/12 to find an unpleasant meeting between the two and again at 1:35AM BBT 7/13 that doesn’t go much better.

Jackie has promised Jeff her vote of support and you can expect another hinky vote from Audrey but that will be far from enough. There are eleven votes this week so no chance of a tie-breaker. The surviving nominee will need six votes to stay, but with both likely noms coming from the same side of the house we’re even less likely to see a close vote.

What do you think of Vanessa’s plans? Is she making the right choice to go after Jeff instead of James, her original target? Any chance Jeff can pull this off and stay this week? The PoV Ceremony is coming up this afternoon and we’ll have the spoilers and results as soon as it’s over.
