Big Brother 17 Recap: Episode 21 – Sixth Sense Can’t Regain Power

The Sixth Sense alliance has again lost control of the Big Brother 17 house and once again one of them will be targeted this week. And it’s a big one.

Sunday night’s episode picks up in the middle of the Head of Household competition as the houseguests are slipping and sliding all over the place. Shelli has revenge in her sights so James is keeping a close eye on Shelli’s progress.

Vanessa is seemingly worried the most because she knows that her game has been so all over the place that anyone outside of her alliance would be crazy not to target her. And then there’s John. He lets us now that just before eviction, he went from flying under the radar to one of the biggest targets in the house. So cut back last week… we’ve got John telling Clay that he doesn’t want him to go. He knows that Vanessa is in Shelli’s head. Clay decides to tell Vanessa that James said Vanessa was in Shelli’s head. Oh, Clay.

So Vanessa then goes and asks James why he’s throwing her name out there. She asks him if he has a problem with her and why he told John she was in Shelli’s head. He swears that’s not true and wants to know who said it. She tells him it was Clay. So James goes for Clay.

Clay and James get heated. Clay gets in James’ face and then Vanessa comes in and blows up on Clay and John. So Vanessa breaks out the tears and John, like us, know this about the sixth time this has happened. And as if she doesn’t look crazy enough, she actually suggests that Clay and Johnny Mac are either “gay lovers” or related.

So while John thinks his game was blown up, Vanessa actually has seemingly blown up her own game.

Let’s cut back to the HOH competition. Becky is in the lead followed by Jackie, Shelli and Julia. After some more slipping and sliding, no one is able to catch up to Becky and she wins all three prizes, including the Head of Household title. And she tells us right away that the house might be surprised to see who her target will be this week. “I want to take out a big fish,” she says.

After the HOH competition, Shelli has a GinaMarie-style meltdown over Clay being gone. She knows she’s alone in the house and she knows she remains a target.

Now that Becky is HOH she knows she has to decide which side to go with since she’s been playing both sides. She tells us that she trusts Jackie, James and Meg more. So that’s who she is going to continue playing the game with. Sorry, Sixth Sense.
