Big Brother 17: Nominations and Battle of the Block Show Blog Party - July 19
Good evening! Ready for a blog party?
As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll update this entry with the major happenings. Refresh the page to get the latest. As always, the real party is in the comments area. I hope to see you there!
Let's get this party started!
Recap and Girl Power in the house. Liz tells us they (the twins) only have to get through two more evictions to both play in the house. Austin is suspicious of the two hinky votes to keep Jeff. Liz tells Diary Room that she voted that way because she never made a connection with James.
Jason thinks he's alone in the game and they'll just keep throwing him on the block -- if he ends up going home, no one will care. He tells Audrey of the twins. Duh. She would be the only one in the world who wouldn't know.
HoH Room reveal. Shelli got photos of her dog. Her letter is from her dog. @@ Johnny Mac reads clues into Liz's letter from her mother.
They do the musical they actually did last week.
The HoH crew -- Austin, Vanessa, Clay, Lizia and Shelli -- talk about possible nominations. Jason, Audrey, Jackie and Becky are brought up as possibles. They think Audrey would have to be backdoored. Shelli isn't keen on that because, if Audrey doesn't go, it would look suspicious that both she and Vanessa kept her safe.
Jackie tries to buddy up with Austin and remove herself from being related to the ghost of Jeff. Austin hopes to make her a personal ally. She talks to Shelli. She tells her that Austin said Liz might put her up as a pawn. Not cool, Austin, says Shelli. Austin and Shelli both told Jackie she's safe from going home this week.
Shelli warns Vanessa that Austin has a big mouth.
Shelli has the nerve to tell us that if Liz remains HoH this week, Austin will run HoH. Pot, Clay, Kettle.
Clay asks Johnny Mac to pawn with Jason.
Audrey campaigns to Shelli to get Jason on the block and out of the house.
Nominations today. Liz nominates James and Jackie. No connection with them. Shelli nominates Jason and Johnny Mac. Her pool of people is small. Has been told Jason would come after her.
Liz tells Jackie she's not her target and will be safe.
Jason talks to Shelli. She tells him that the lies told about him that he would go after them came from Audrey. "I am all alone in a house full of serpents." She tells him she doesn't want to go home -- dethrone her.
The twins swap out.
Audrey thinks Jason is blaming her for his being on the block. Oops. She lies to Shelli. Not a good move.
Battle of the Block time! Grunge band theme. Alice is tied in chains, they must unlock the padlock and bring her to Nirvana. The location of the four keys reference Smashing Pumpkins, Pearl Jam and such.
John did not throw it. Nonetheless, Jackie and James won the BotB. Liz is dethroned.
Jason, John and Liz have to form a boys band.
As a side note: There was a lot of action and kerfuffle in the house today. My live feeds report will be up in a few hours!
