Later today in the Big Brother 17 house the Power of Veto Ceremony will be held and this week’s Head of Household, Steve Moses, will be forced to make a decision. Houseguests all suspect what’s about to be done, but that shouldn’t stop the planned noms from shedding a few more tears.
Yes, game plans were disrupted in this week’s Veto competition, but this went back to proving the point of why the original noms had to be done the way they were. Just imagine the mess Steve would be walking in to otherwise.
Austin won the Veto and will soon take himself off the Block. There’s no chance that he’ll use it on Liz as he’s made it clear he wants to stay and feared he’d be the target if he remained on the Block. Sure enough, Austin was the target, at least for Steve.
So with Austin out of the mix Steve will have to name a renom and he’s made his choice clear. Julia will be going up on the Block. His only other choices were Vanessa and John which wouldn’t make sense for him to use his allies. There’s no chance that’ll happen today.
Speaking to the cameras last night, Flashback to 2:52 AM BBT 9/7, Steve said “I am skeptical of Vanessa, but the Austwins need to be broken up. I’d be a fool to do anything else.” True. At this point the Austwins have survived far past at point of when they should have been cut. I’m still disappointed in the majority of them for allowing that to happen in the first place, but I suppose better late than never.
With the twins up on the Block the House will have to decide who is best to go. Of course Vanessa is working on that plan, but she’s presenting it as a choice the twins want to make themselves and then the house should just lay down and let them pick. That’s crazy. There’s no way anyone outside the Austwins should want Liz to stay another day. She’s the much stronger competitor and has a tighter bond than Julia has available to her.
I’m sure there will be plenty of discussions later in the week over the merits of which twin to keep, but for now we can rest assured that they will be the final nominees of the week. We’ll get the formal Big Brother spoilers later today and have them posted on the site when it happens.
