Vanessa Rousso might have woken a sleeping Johnny Mac on Thursday when she went after him ahead of Clay’s eviction. The Rockstar Dentist felt the heat and is on the move to cut off Vanessa’s next move before she can do it to him.
Overnight John McGuire held two important conversations with Houseguests he now considers to be his best ally hopes: Shelli Poole and Steve Moses. John worked to secure their support and draw up a plan before the Veto competition on Saturday.
Flashback on your Feeds to 12:49AM BBT 8/8 as John sits down with Shelli. After their initial chatter John drops to a whisper and warns Shelli that he knows the plan to go after Vanessa but he fears she does too.
John tells Shelli it’s them two and Steve fighting for their Big Brother lives. He goes on to explain the plan Vanessa helped craft was for the remaining half of Chelli to go up on the Block alongside Steve and John. This is all news to Shelli.
When it comes to the Veto picks, John warns Shelli that if she picks him then Vanessa will know that they know. Heh. He knows that Vanessa put together the 8-person plan but then has been coming downstairs telling him that the other seven are after him and her. John is on to her.
Shelli worries what to do about the Veto picks, but John says it’s best to pick him even if it exposes their position in the game. The clincher may come when John tells Shelli Vanessa’s modus operandi: blow up in a fight with Vanessa then evicted. Shelli realizes he’s right.
John reiterates that it all comes down to him, her, and Steve alone against the house. He says there was never any Becky for them. Apparently something has happened to make John distrust Becky and I’m not sure what it was. He promises to use the Veto on Shelli if he gets the Veto. Shelli tells John she wants to work with him and not Vanessa.
Vanessa’s support team is eroding fast. Vanessa placed the wedge between her and Shelli/Clay on Thursday with that big (completely unnecessary) fight, Becky knocked it in to place by telling Shelli about her plans to get out Vanessa, and John just may have rammed it home with this talk.
Move forward to round 2 as John goes to Steve. Flashback to 1:09 AM BBT as John grabs Steve and they go in to the Lounge. John catches Steve up with the same sort of information he just gave Shelli.
