Thanks to information revealed by Becky the night before, the Austwins have been suspicious of Vanessa so when she came to them with tales of a “raging” Johnny Mac the pieces came together again.

To kick this party off you’ll need to rewind to 1:06PM BBT 8/14 Cams 3/4 as Vanessa talks with Johnny Mac about the upcoming nominations. Talk turns to how John says he knew what was going on last week with him being a pawn alongside Shelli because she told him. Vanessa doesn’t like that.

There’s a series of back and forth as Vanessa insists John’s memory is faulty and she didn’t tell him. John says he heard her tell Chelli about the 8-HG alliance. Vanessa says she never told them and he’s lying. John says okay, but he heard her and it’s in his brain.

Vanessa leaves the Have-Not room. John jokingly asks “wheeeerrrreee ya going?” He decides he should follow her. It’s a good idea.

Vanessa grabs Steve and pulls him in the Lounge. She immediately goes on the offensive telling Steve he has one opportunity to tell her the truth. Vanessa wants to know if Steve told John. He denies. John opens the door and walks right in. “Hello! How’s it going? What are we doing?” asks John in an overly friendly tone. Flashback to 1:29PM BBT to watch. Later Vanessa will lie about that in her retells.

Vanessa starts digging in to John about what he’s been saying. He insists it’s not a big deal, but she thinks it is. Steve asks if he can leave. “No,” replies Vanessa who then returns her focus to grilling John. After a few Steve gets out of the room and John almost escapes when Vanessa says she wants to talk. John shuffles back to the couch and slumps down.

It’s a lot to listen to, but John is quietly slouched on the couch listening to Vanessa do her rapid speech spiel. John tells her he felt bullied when she aggressively went after him just before Clay’s eviction. She denies any such thing. This was when she publicly accused him in a grandstanding fashion then said he was either related to Clay or his gay lover. You know, keeping it classy and all.

Finally John tells Vanessa that he doesn’t like it when she cries and yells at people. In this case it was him on the receiving end of that, John tells her. As we’ve heard John tell others, that’s the kiss of death for Vanessa’s targets. Vanessa says she’s sorry he feels that way and walks out. Feeds cut for the nominations, but the Vanessa adventure hasn’t stopped.
