Big Brother 17 Episode 29: Official Photos Of Live Eviction & HoH Competition

Big Brother did not disappoint on the crazy factor last night with so much going on though I think we were all hoping for a longer endurance HoH comp there than the HGs delivered on. Now we can look back at Thursday’s show in these official CBS photos.

Jumping right in to things the Houseguests were faced with a quick eviction vote that sent John McGuire out the door only to turn right around and head back in to the house and from there on in to the game.

Here’s a new look at the competition from angles that we didn’t get to see during the live show with more looks at the competition itself. Good thing they had their photographer ready to snap pics before everyone was down and out!

  1. I’m kind of confused on why people didn’t do well in the competition. Wasn’t this the exact same competition that was in season 14? (The one that was space themed and Ian won?)

    • Yeah I guess because there was 2 hands and you would run into it and bounce off of it and around it.. Making it a little more difficult. But nothing extra loke water or paint or bubbles shooting onto them.

      Julie even said…..we are in for a looking night…. Then 20 mins later its over???

      Unless people got disqualified for sitting and fish did come up and when the cams came back on people were out…

      • Ya IDK if the extra spinning was to much for people or what? Cuz I feel like in similar comps they usually hold on for much longer.

      • There were at least 3 DQs and possibly 4. From what I read all DQs were for sitting. However, both Vanessa, the winner, and JMac, the runner up and returning juror, both sat on their disks, too. There are photos of them with their feet and bottom on the disk, but you can tell that their weight is on their bottom. So, some were DQ’d and some not for the exact same thing.

        ETA: The viewers were told that the only rule was “last HG standing.” I’ve yet to see anyone confirm if the HGs were given more explicit rules. Also, when Van cheated by putting crisco in her bowl during the fill the bowl comp, BB gave her a warning, instead of a DQ.

      • I think the other HGs were disqualified because their feet were off the disks. We’ll have to wait and see. None of the HGs seem to be complaining about it.

      • I hope you’re right, Philly! TY for the clarification. I asked on another post whether feet were still on the disk for those that got DQ’d. The response I got back was that they were all the same. If their feet were off the disk, then the whole thing is understandable.

  2. It’s speculation that anyone was DQed! None of th house guests are talking about DQ’s.

  3. Wow I don’t think I have ever heard more daffed( stupid) comments from
    people in my life. When did these idiots forget this is a game,Vanessa….

    oh my gravey you could have won the game by getting Dumb and Dumber
    and Danny Tanner out. I believe you just signed the check over to Johnny
    Mac. As for the three stooges….. will they even understand how unatractive they have been in mind and soul. Sadly I don’t think so.
    Memory is so short with these people. Drink the kool-aid. The only person
    that seems to GET Vanessa is JohnnyMac.You are my only hope for this
