We settled in for one very wild ride during last night’s Big Brother 17 special eviction episode as the Final 5 face the Power of Veto, an elimination, and another HoH competition played out with spectacular drama in a fast-forward round of Big Brother

When things left off on Sunday we had just seen Vanessa send John and Steve to the Block, but with Veto looming nearby anything could happen and the week’s target could shift dramatically. By the end of this show we’ll have one less Houseguest and be on our way to another eviction show on Wednesday.

This wasn’t a live show, but we still got a lot of important events to watch leading up to the first eviction of this week’s double elimination round. The second eviction arrives during Wednesday’s live eviction show starting at 8/7c.

Big Brother 17 Week 12 Veto Competition:
This challenge required the HGs to run across a beam to work on a magnetic puzzle on one side and the 20 second timer on the other side.

  • Johnny Mac wins the Veto!

Big Brother 17 Week 12 Veto Ceremony:

  • John saves himself, Vanessa names Austin as the renom

Now John will decide to evict Steve or let things go to a tie. In the case of a tie the choice goes to Vanessa: evict Steve or Austin.

Big Brother 17 Week 12 Eviction Votes:

  • Liz votes to evict Steve
  • John votes to evict Austin
  • Tie!

Vanessa breaks the tie against Austin! Just as I explained would happen here yesterday.

Liz is shocked & Austin is pissed. Really, really pissed. Austin tells Julie that no one in Jury will vote for Vanessa.

Big Brother 17 Week 12.5 HoH Competition – “What The Bleep?”:
Houseguests have to guess True/False on words provided by Julie to fill in the blanks for things the evicted HGs have said. It’s pretty silly and there’s even a “camping” reference mixed in which is an inside joke for the Feed watchers.

  • Round 1: All get a point
  • Round 2: All get a point
  • Round 3: Steve gets a point
  • Round 4: All get a point
  • Round 5: John gets a point
  • Round 6: No one gets a point
  • Round 7: John & Steve get a point
  • Tie-breaker: Steve wins after John goes over!

Congrats to Steve, the new HoH!
