Big Brother 17 Recap: Episode 31 — Vanessa Continues Playing ‘Too Hard, Too Fast’

Wednesday night’s episode of Big Brother 17 gave the TV-only viewers a look at who Vanessa actually is on the Live Feeds, and after her post-veto ceremony decision, we also got proof that she’s not as good at this game as she thinks she is.

We pick up right after Vanessa nominated James and Meg for eviction. Vanessa tells us she went with those two because they’re a strong pair, not on her side of the house and was the best decision to keep unnecessary blood on her hands.

Meg and James are confused and clearly regretting why they ever kept Vanessa in the game. It doesn’t take long for Meg to end up in tears and they’re both aware that one of them will be going home no matter what.

Vanessa, who is just such a wonderful person, decides she wants to give James and Meg something she didn’t have when she was up and that’s an explanation as to why she nominated them. Aww, how sweet Vanessa. She tries to explain and in usual Vanessa fashion, she spews complete garbage. None of Vanessa’s reasons or excuses ever make any sense and Meg just isn’t having it.

After Vanessa leaves her fresh nominees, she goes to talk to Steve abbot what to do if James wins veto since he’s the target. Vanessa realizes that she has so much blood on her hands already that she can’t go for Austwins or she will have pissed off every single person in the game and doesn’t stand a chance at winning a jury vote. Hint: she already doesn’t if you ask me.

Speaking of veto, at the draw, Vanessa picks Julia, James picks Liz and Meg draws Austin. Things aren’t looking good for James and Meg now and they know James has to win if there’s any chance that both of them can stay this week. They believe there’s still a possibly that if Meg is sitting next to someone else, she could stay. And any Big Brother viewer or player would probably agree. I mean, it’s Meg. Why would anyone take her out when so many bigger players remain in the game?

It’s time for the veto competition and it’s “Hide and Go Veto” and just as it sounds, the players are given a veto card and have three miinutes to go into the house and hide their veto card. Then they’ll each get two minutes to find the hidden cards. The last person’s card to be found, wins veto.

Meg gets to hide her veto card first and she hides it in a nook and cranny in the bedroom. Austin puts his in the duvet cover right next to Meg’s. James decides to put his card under the living room rug. Julia hides hers inside a cushion in the lounge. Liz puts hers inside a pizza box. Vanessa decides to hide her card inside a sofa cushion.

Since she got to hide first, Meg also gets to hunt first. She returns empty handed. Austin is up next and he makes a huge mess and finds none. James goes next and he decides to just ransack the house also and finds no card. Julia also returns empty-handed. And so does Liz. Vanessa finds Liz’s veto card inside the pizza box. Oops.
