Big Brother 17: HoH Endurance Winner, Nominations Show Blog Party
Good evening! Ready for a blog party? Tonight's episode will show the outcome of the HoH endurance comp ... which many of us already know about, but ...! "It's going to be a tense week." And, we love tense!
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!
Recap, recap. (Of course.) Cut into the endurance comp in action. The rain comes down, the wall tilts forward and the stuffed birds attack. Now they're getting glopped with "bird poop." Steve out first, immediately followed by Austin. Julia down, then Meg. More stormy weather and bird attacks. In DR, Johnny Mac thinks it's awesome.
Jackie's out. James knows he needs to win it. Liz is out. Vanessa tells us anyone but James would be okay for her. Becky out. Clay out. Shelli tries to make a deal for safety for her, Clay and Johnny Mac. James agrees. Johnny Mac goes down. Shelli jumps.
James is HoH, promises to get blood on his hands and go for big targets. To us, that is, not to the fellow hamsters. Shelli is sure he'll keep his word.
They show Julia has shown up on the Memory Wall but don't point out that they put her in place of Jace.
Liz and Julia talk about Austin. Liz tells Julia that Jason twisted everything. Julia is less than thrilled with him. She doesn't trust him at all. I like Julia!
Vanessa is bothered that Shelli didn't include her in the safety deal with James.
James, Meg, Jackie and Becky talk about how Shelli and Clay are running the house. "What they did to us, we'll do to them." James wants Shelli out.
Becky runs to tell Chelli that a backdoor plan is in motion.
Vanessa ran to James to make her own plea for her own safety, throwing Clay and Shelli under the bus -- about the Jason thing and the fact Shelli didn't include her in the deal. They never showed James's HoH room reveal. Is that a first? She offers him a safety deal down the road.
Clay and Shelli visit James. They throw Austin under the bus. James is just telling them what they want to hear at this point.
James tells Meg he might just throw both Shelli and Clay on the block, that way one would go home.
Nominations Ceremony time! James nominates Clay and Shelli. Ha! He says his contract wasn't valid. Shelli pleads her case.
