Big Brother 17: Pre-Veto Plans In Week 8 – Update: Players Picked| August 15, 2015 at 2:30 PM EST
With no Backdoor plans on the horizon for a change this week in the Big Brother 17 house the Veto comp was actually coming down to a very important event for both of the nominees.
The stress isn’t reserved for just the players today though as the new Head of Household and her allies are worried about what could happen later today in the comp.
John and Becky are up on the Block after Liz put them in the hot seats. Now they’ll join her and three other players in the Power of Veto comp later today.
Originally Austin and Liz decided they wanted Becky to win after she pulled back the curtain on Vanessa to them on Friday night. Austin has long feared JMac coming after them so this would be a great opportunity to get rid of John and keep Becky as their new weapon.
Liz and Austin’s ideal scenario was that instead of them worrying about taking Vanessa out themselves they could instead have Becky stay this week and make her their mongoose to eliminate Vanessa next week. But wait, what’s better than one mongoose? How about two.
Last night John made similar revelations with the Austwins over Vanessa’s behavior. At this point Austin and Liz decided it’d be better to keep John than Becky because, um, who knows for sure. Austin might think he can work better with John down the road while the twins said they could manipulate John more easily with their hotness. They’re a fickle bunch.
At this point Liz and Austin don’t feel it’s absolutely critical for their game in one way or another who stays though they’re currently leaning to having John around longer. What they do think is important is to have both of those nominations stay the same. The only people who would change them as of now would be the nominees themselves.
Becky had asked the Austwins if they’d be willing to save her after she gave them all of her Vanessa information. They declined. Instead Liz promised Becky complete safety with no chance of going to the Jury. Kinda like how Becky promised the same to Shelli last week, right? Yes, that promise was made before the whole situation with John came up and they decided it’d be great to have John there instead. Oops.
