Picking back up for the second half of the night’s talks we get Vanessa continuing her back and forth on targets as she holds more talks with the other four Houseguests.
12:50 AM BBT – After a long reprieve, Vanessa resumes her game talk with Austin as he extols the benefits of keeping him and Liz as a target before her. Vanessa tells Austin she wants them to target John if he’s on the Block come eviction time.
12:55 AM BBT – Vanessa has additional deal requirements: Austin will vote out Johnny, won’t use the Veto, and (along with Liz) throw round one of the final HoH comp to her. Austin agrees.
1:05 AM BBT – Austin agreeing with all the reasons Vanessa has for making John the target and keeping Steve as Steve will be a problem for Liz, not them.
1:25 AM BBT – Vanessa explaining to Liz how watching Johnny Mac’s video message from home where his family did the air guitar has convinced her there’s more to the Rockstars alliance (with Steve) than she imagined.
1:30 AM BBT – Vanessa making her list of demands to Liz: vote how Vanessa tells her and throw round one of the final HoH (as previously discussed and agreed to).
1:40 AM BBT – Steve now makes his way up to HoH room. Vanessa explains why it seems like she should choose the showmance to target, but she feels Steve would take John over her to the F2. (As compared to the showmance taking you? What?) Vanessa says she thinks John would pick Steve over her to go to the end. Now back up, hours ago John explained to Vanessa why he wouldn’t take Steve over her since Steve is well liked and Vanessa isn’t (as she continues to insist), so we know this is pure bull.
1:45 AM BBT – Vanessa says everyone left has won a lot except John. She likens John’s record to Julia’s. John won 4 comps and threw others… (I think John has won more comps than Austin after a quick scan of the wins list.)
1:50 AM BBT – Steve is worried Liz and Austin will vote against him, not John if they’re on the Block together. Vanessa assures him they’ll vote as she instructs.
2:05 AM BBT – Vanessa explaining her vision for F4 where Austin will throw Veto but then Vanessa wants Steve to win it and take her and Liz on to F3.
2:20 AM BBT – Vanessa promises to tie-break in Steve’s favor if John comes down and Steve is up there at eviction time.
2:45 AM BBT – John arrives for his talking-to. Vanessa explains how John could take her spot because he’s won less and is tempting to other HGs in a F2 scenario. John doesn’t argue at all about her reasoning that he and Steve are a pair just like Austin and Liz are a pair.
3:00 AM BBT – Vanessa prodding John to make arguments against her proposed plan, but he declines. She asks if he’s okay with Steve leaving and he says he is.
3:20 AM BBT – John and Vanessa continued their talk. He’s not resisting her suggested noms of him and Steve. Vanessa asked if he’d vote how she wanted if he isn’t on the Block. John agrees.
3:30 AM BBT – Steve is stressing and scampers back upstairs when John leaves. Vanessa tells Steve that John doesn’t know he’s the target.
3:35 AM BBT – Austin arrives and blocks Steve’s game talk where he was working out scenarios with M&Ms. Vanessa gives him the boot and talks with Austin.
3:40 AM BBT – Vanessa tells Austin she’s good with either Steve or John leaving. She claims Steve’s campaigning to protect John has her more convinced of their alliance.
3:50 AM BBT – Vanessa relays stories to Austin about her conversation with John and how he didn’t even put up a fight or argue to her suggestion that he’d be a nom.
4:30 AM BBT – Austin is back down and out of the HoH room. Vanessa remains awake and going through scenarios using the candy Steve left.
4:38 AM BBT – DR leak as Vanessa goes in and we can hear production and her chatting briefly. Nothing of value, but interesting if you like the insight of their general talk.
4:50 AM BBT – Vanessa finally, finally goes to bed and lights out.
Vanessa is saying her target is John and she’s saying her target is John and Steve. Earlier she said her target was Austin. Oh and she also mentioned her target was Liz. We can be fairly confident she’s not targeting Vanessa. Mostly confident at least. I don’t think John is her real target as compared to a showmance, but we’ll see.
Big reminder here that the Feeds will go down for 14 hours on Friday as the HGs have an early nominations ceremony and Veto competition. We won’t get Feeds and spoilers for those until nearly midnight BBT. In the meantime, we’ll get what we can out of these HGs before things go dark.
