Move forward to 2:54 PM BBT as John talks with Shelli and Clay. John warns Shelli that Vanessa has deals with everyone and she’s been dragging Chelli’s name. “She’s been doing this crying bullshit that she does everytime,” says John. He points out that her drama has sent home HG after HG. “She’s good. None of this is pinned on her,” says John
Part of Vanessa’s efforts in this was to divide Clay and Shelli which seems unnecessary considering they’re about to be voted apart! All the same, she’s trying to convince Shelli that Clay was plotting against Shelli to get the votes to stay. Vanessa swears she heard John and Clay planning the votes overnight. This doesn’t seem to have happened, but maybe Vanessa does believe she heard it. John now knows for sure that Vanessa is gunning for him, despite her assertions otherwise.
Later in an effort to, um, heck I don’t know what her motive was here, but at 3:19 PM BBT Vanessa corners John and Clay again. She wants to know why they’re covering for each other. Vanessa says “Seriously. You’re either gay lovers or you’re f**king related. That’s the only thing that makes any damn sense.” Or, maybe Vanessa, neither want to give you any more fuel for your assertions.
The whole thing was a total mess. I don’t see much good for Vanessa from all this. Why did she do it? Clay was already on his way out but this did seal his fate and shift from a potentially close vote to a unanimous one. Was that guaranteed eviction worth putting herself in the spotlight and making her a center of negative attention right before the next round of noms?
Vanessa has a bad habit of making unrelated situations suddenly not only relate to her but to put her in the middle of them. What’s really bad in this situation is the way she went on the attack against John. Maybe she should have waited to find out who would be in power this week.
Now Becky is in control, knows Vanessa is causing problems, wants to help protect John, and will use this position of power to do just that with her planned nominations. Watch out, Vanessa. This could be a bad week for her. Nominations are coming up Friday night so get ready for the drama.
