Big Brother 17: Nominations, Battle of the Block Show Blog Party - July 25
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!
After the recap, Vanessa tells us that she had to win HoH once Jackie did as she would likely be one of Jackie's targets. Austin talks to Lizia about "Operation Jason." He thinks if he talks twins with Jason, they would be more of a target to Jason than he is. In the twin change, Liz and Julia talk about Austin. Neither seem to to be thrilled with him.
Jason is very suspicious over why Austin is telling him not only about the twins, but even Julia's name. Austin tells Jason he wants to split up the twins. He tells us he'd like to keep them together, but his heart only belongs to one of them. (Too bad it's not mutual!) He wants to be in jury with Liz.
Jason, using the info as ammo, tells Meg, then Shelli. She's upset that Austin let the twins cat out of the bag, thus betraying their 6th Sense Alliance. Of course, she doesn't tell Meg or Jason that. But she does run to Vanessa.
Cut to Vanessa and Jackie talking nominations. They give their words that they won't backdoor each other. Jackie mentions Liz on the block. And Steve. (Wah!) They both talk about getting rid of Austin. Jackie would like to be the one to stay HoH.
Who wants to see our HoH room? Nope, not me. Nothing to see here. Move along.
Vanessa corners Austin in a lie or lies about his talk with Jason. She told Austin never to lie to her.
Vanessa tells Julia about Austin's talk with Jason. Then she talks to Shelli about it. "He lied to my face!" Clay volunteers to go on the block with Becky while the other two nominees -- Liz and James -- are supposed to lose BoB. James agrees to throw it. Liz has no clue of the plan. Then they backdoor Austin.
She tells Austin the plan is to backdoor Steve. She explains away why she's putting Clay on the block.
Nominations Today! Jackie nominates James and Liz, but we knew that. Because each put her on the block. Vanessa nominates Clay and Becky. Try to be fair, game decision.
Vanessa confides in Julia and tells her Lizia isn't the target. During the twins switch-out, Julia won't tell her about the Austin wants Julia out bit.
Battle of the Block time -- they have to study the Memory Wall for a few minutes. It's former hamsters. Breaking news have them tossing paint to reveal letters. They have to unscramble names of three hamsters from last season seen eating at Outback. There's also a special award involved. Liz realizes she has to be the brains with her and James. James and Liz win the BotB despite the fact James threw it. Liz did it all. James doesn't seem too excited. James, Liz and Vanessa get a private Outback Steakhouse dinner. Jackie is dethroned.
Clay and Becky remain on the block. Shelli is worried about her boy toy.
