Good evening! Ready for a blog party? Tonight either Becky or Johnny Mac will go to jury. It's supposed to be an endurance comp (again) tonight. A separate post for screen caps and updates on any of the happenings after the show ends will post at 10pm ET. I'll follow the comp and update, so please join me! On that note, though I do hate to bring this up ... I put a lot of effort forth during the BB seasons while also working full time. Other sites get a percentage of the money from live feeds subscribers; I don't. I do, however, accept and really appreciate donations made to the blog. While I love the community here, there's quite of work involved on my part and little sleep for three months. If you wish to donate, the link is right in the sidebar on the right!
Before we get going, here's the latest update on the blog pool:
Jeff - No pool people due to being announced late in cast
Audrey - David, Chase, Orkmommy, Nicole K
Jason - Witt, Sharon, WolfpackRed
Clay - FairieGoddess0714, QuixoticElf, DonnaNY, JonMD1267
Shelli - Delee, Sharon N, chrob
Jackie - No pool people due to being announced late in cast
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 ... along with the promise of our first look at the jury house. Liz tells us that someone else will get the blood on their hands for evicting Vanessa. Becky realizes Liz won't backdoor Vanessa. John has the idea that he's not the target and will do his "dead fish" strategy -- lie about and not cause waves.
Segment on James and Meg silliness and James's pranks. He wraps all of Steve's stuff up with plastic wrap on a dentist chair.
Johnny Mac is now in with Steve, Austin, Liz and Julia. They all have the same idea about Vanessa. Johnny Mac says he'd put her on the block. Their eyes light up! (Well, not Steve's eyes so much.)
Becky pleads her cast to Austwins ... she also says she would target Vanessa. Now the Austwins have to decide which one is best to keep.
To the living room and showing them James scaring Julia. Then they talk about OTEV and show Meg's head slam. Steve misses his family.
Into a degment about Steve alone in the yard talking to us and then into a family segment on him. His town is all behind him!
Jury house time -- Shelli wants Vanessa to be next. Oh noes, it's Jackie! She tells Shelli it was Steve's doing. Steve told Jackie that he heard she was going to backdoor him. They both know it was Vanessa who told Steve that. They both hope Vanessa is next. Jackie would actually prefer to get back in and evict her herself.
The live vote pleas:
Becky: Lost our minds, fun, great journey, do what's best for your game.
John: Lists Becky's virtues in the house, keeping me here would be dumb, but I want to stay.
The votes to evict:
Steve - Becky
Vanessa - Becky
Meg - Becky
Austin - Becky
Julia - Becky
James - Becky
It's unanimous -- Becky is evicted.
Buh-bye, Becky. She's limping from a toe injury in OTEV, a small part of the reason they voted her out.
ZingBot will appear next week. He also has a Twitter account - @ZingbotOfficial
HoH comp -- Ready, Set, Woe -- a track meet, six races, each race one eliminated. They have to hold three buttons down, watch for words "ready, set and go" to show, then race across to hit their button. Decoy words, time differences, etc. expected.The buttons are held down with hands and one foot/knee.
Meg out first.
Julie promises exciting news about the next eviction. I predict that it's about the jury members competing to return as next week will be the fourth member of the jury.
I'll be following the endurance comp on this post linked here.
