Vanessa and Steve secured their spot in this round but the third seat went to the surviving nominee between John and Liz. Unfortunately for the Johnny Mac fans, he was evicted again on Wednesday night.

Now we’ve got the final endurance competition to settle who wants it the most for a chance at the third round. The losers here moved on to the second round later this week while the Round 1 winner relaxes so the pressure is on to hang in and get this win.
