Big Brother 17: Live Feeds into Friday - August 7

Becky takes all the prizes!

Oh my. My blog pool person is the new HoH, plus she also got the Never Have Not and the $5,000. Whatever will she do as HoH? Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Slippery Sliding:
  • Shelli cried. Now, she wasn't the worst -- Meg, Austin and Vanessa can take credit for that. But, she wasn't all that close in the running in the comp.
  • Becky rarely fell while Austin spent a lot of time down.
  • Johnny Mac looked sad and seemed to be crying. He's tried very hard at the last two comps. We should keep in mind that he, like Steve, Jason and Austin, is a huge fan of the show. I think he's been planning to make his big moves last week and this week and failed.
  • I could be wrong.
  • Becky SEEMS to have chosen a side ... Jackie, James, Meg. Apparently something Vanessa said set her off against those other folks.
  • Johnny Mac wants all to band together against Vanessa.
  • While Johnny Mac and Becky are buddies, it seems like every single "band together" plan has flopped this season.
  • Or, flip-flopped. Or waffled.
  • Johnny Mac told Steve about the target Vanessa plan.
  • Hmm.
  • Steve told Vanessa that they (he and she) might not be safe this week.
  • I think he's absolutely right.
  • Vanessa tried to defend whatever happened during the fight pre-show. Gosh, she can yap a mile a minute and leave you totally befuddled.
  • In her whirlwind of words, she told Shelli about the "secret" Geeks and Freaks alliance. 
  • Loose lips do what?
  • When she told Steve that she told Shelli about it, he wasn't happy.
  • Shelli continued to creep me out by talking about how much Clay looks like her brother.
  • Okay, this week's plan (if it actually works) is to nominate Steve and Shelli, backdoor Vanessa.
  • That's according to Becky, Meg, Jackie and James and then by Becky and Johnny Mac separately.
  • A worried Austin promised Becky safety if a double eviction comes up. He's hoping not to go on the block.
  • He really shouldn't worry -- he's rather inept at comps and his social game is far from the best. I don't think he could ever be a threat to win it all.
  • Vanessa tried to make a deal with Becky, but no way. Becky said she's done with deals.
  • Becky keeps harping on how Steve needs to play THIS season, not keep spouting facts about past seasons.
  • She's actually right.
  • In privacy, Becky told Johnny Mac her one true target and the only person she "hates" in the house is Vanessa.
  • The twins and Becky agreed not to target each other.
  • Heh. No more deals, eh? 
  • Just not deals with Vanessa, Becky's new found nemesis.
  • Vanessa's paranoia is kicking in. She went to Austin to see if Becky made a deal with him. He told just the original double eviction safety deal. Vanessa told him that Becky is bragging about her group -- James, Meg, Jackie.
  • Austin said that was puzzling because he thought he and the twins were close to Becky.
  • Of course, we know that Johnny Mac is the one closest to Becky.
  • Vanessa thinks she's going to be the backdoor target.
  • Methinks she's right.
  • Whoa? A diary room "leak" seems to have James receiving an America's Player card. Hmm.

New green hat?

Feeling safe

Summit meeting

Inner circle meeting

Pawn? Target?

Safe this week?

Here is the complete story of Becky's train injury..
The Story About Becky and Her Injury #BB17
http://bigbrotherlivefeedupdates.blogspot.com/2015/06/the-story-about-becky-and-her-injury.html

Vanessa is going to have literally catch a miracle card on the river if she expects to stay in this game. OTOH,the stooges (Jackie,James & Meg) game plans have backfired every time. Start moving those lips into high speed,Vanessa.

JonMD1267 said...

Hope Becky sticks to her plans this week. Should be some scrambling by Vanessa. Will be interesting if her magic hat can get her through. Lol

Petals said...

HA! I loved that Whhaaanessa was blocked-at-every-turn last night. Choke on your own
medicine, Lady MacBeth!
*fingers crossed* that this week goes smoothly for the good guys.
I heard the DR leak, too! Awesome for James and for us!

Cheryl in NC said...

I hope Becky sticks with this plan too.I was worried she would align with the dark side.Maybe Jmac talked some sense into her.

Anonymous said...

Oh how I wish she would put Shelli on the block,but it's okay because when James or Jackie win HOH next week she'll go up and probably OUT.

Anonymous said...

I'm hoping that with double eviction they get SHELLI and Vanessa out. GO JAMES !!!!!

Anonymous said...

I'm surprised Jackie never went into details about the big brouhaha yesterday before the live show!

Chacha said...

Anon 9:49-
The brouhaha was great on the feeds, it all centered around Vanessa, Clay and John.
Last night when she was trying to explain it to Jackie and Meg they caught her in another lie.
V was stating that all this happened before the "vote flip". Jackie didn't say a word then Meg said that isn't true. She didn't tell Vanessa how they knew that. Vanessa didn't realize that Austin had already told them they were going to flip it to vote clay out.
Vanessa didn't really know where to go from there. She left the room and Jackie and Meg just laughed at her.

Mind you this was after the HOH when Vanessa stated that no one would hear from her for 12 hours as she was so tired.

Chacha said...

The only flaw i can see in this Shelli/Steve up for noms is if Vanessa wins POV and pulls Shelli off.
I am not sure she would do it. If she did then Austin or a twin would go up and she still loses a player. If she used it Austin and the twins would flip out.

Whats important is Becky is the tie breaker this week. She already has Meg, Jackie, John and James.

Witt said...

:::rubbing hands together in glee:::
Vanessa and Shelli possibly out in the same week???? A girl can dream, right??
Come on Becky, do the right thing!!

Witt :)

Chacha said...

Witt-
It would be wonderful.
What does your gut say if Vanessa is picked and plays in Veto?
I know Becky told Shelli the plan. If Shelli doesn't pick Vanessa if she gets Houseguest choice does Vanessa go all out rat?

IAgirlsmom said...

So, Becky must not want Shelli out if she is telling her the Vanessa plan.. I thought the 6th Sense was outed, but apparently not. Otherwise, if Becky put up Shelli and Vanessa she could mostly guarantee one of them.
Double eviction means a new HOH right?

Anonymous said...

If for some reason that Becky does put Steve and Shelli on the block and blindside Bucky Beaver(Shelli) that would be awesome,However since Sneaky Steve is so unpredictable, I wouldn't mind if he left. But Shelli and Vanessa leaving would be so bitter sweet, they could do their reminiscing in the jury house, let Bucky Beaver think about how trustworthy she was, and Ms Paranoid needs the get back to that poker game, because she surely doesn't know how to play the BB game.

Sharon N said...

Becky climbs another notch (for me) by requesting OneRepublic!!
Is that a tad shallow? lol

Chacha said...

IAgirlsmom-
the sixth sense alliance hasn't been outed vocally but everyone knows the people. No name has been given.
Anon 11:38-
Becky wants to keep Shelli as a shield(IMO) this weeks breaks her from Austin and the twins. Austin will gun from her and she from them.
SharonN-
No not shallow

Joe in NY said...

Am I the only one left who kind of likes Vanessa? She's made a couple mistakes, but she's been the hamster playing hardest.

And, frankly, except for James the rest of the HGs haven't done much of anything except follow the Late Clellessa's orders.

I wonder how much different it is if Clellessa doesn't save Austin? They might all be sitting pretty with the rest of the morons - including James at that point - just doing their bidding. It's only the backdoor of Jason that woke them up.

Witt said...

You know, Cha Cha, thinking about it further, I think I'd rather have Vanessa go farther than Shelli or Austin or the twins. Vanessa HAS been playing the game. Shelli, for some reason, just rubs me the wrong way. I think her whole "I don't DESERVE to be nominated!!" stance was really off-putting.

OK, today's wishes: Let's say goodbye to Shelli, then Austin (since he has no idea about this game and I think Liz would be grateful), then Steve.

Joe in NY, you are right. "The other side" sort of floated along until Jason went. However, I just don't like how one side dominates and taunts the other. Maybe I need to find a new summer show (and I've been watching it since the beginning!).

David said...

You are right Joe. This whole thing started because Vanessa saved Austin and backdoored Jason. Austin has not won anything and is nothing more than a sounding board for Vanessa. I wonder if she regrets that decision now, I know Shelli does and has said so.

If Becky does indeed do what she has said she will, that should create some drama. Especially if the backdoor plan works with Steve coming off the block and Vanessa up next to Shelli. That's who I want up next to each other. There could be so much throwing each other under the bus they will both be covered in road rash and red eye's from all the crying.

Joe in NY said...

We really could have done Liz a favor and sent Austin this week. If I were her, I wouldn't want to be alone with him in the jury house.

Chacha said...

Witt-
Don't get me wrong, I don't really like Shelli or Vanessa. I would love to see the two start throwing each other under the proverbial bus.
Shelli rubs me wrong but I have to see how she is without Clay or Vanessa. With the conversation she had with Becky last night its like a light bulb went off and she may see that Vanessa really doesn't have anyones best interests but her own.

Austin- he has watched the game, done podcasts and still has done nothing.


uncartie said...

Be careful what you wish for folks. Getting rid of Vanessa and Shelli will turn the game into another follow the leader,what's best for the house,snoozefest. We'll be left with a boring cast that has shown to be incapable of making long range decisions and will be afraid to offend anyone.
Do we really want to be left with a season where the biggest storyline will probably be Sasquatch trying to get in the jury house with Liz?

IAgirlsmom said...

Joe - no problem with Vanessa really and agree she is at least playing, but all the crying and redirecting just wears on me. Uncartie - you are so right, the game could get down right boring without them. I just think - as far as what's best for the James and then Becky HOHs - is to get rid of the actual players on the obvious other team. Vanessa and Shelli could have a chance to win it all. I don't think Steve does. I guess it's a bit of tight rope though - if Steve and Meg and Becky were all that is left... Hmm Good thing I'm not in there, I coul dbe a waffler...

Sharon N said...

Agree with Agirlsmom.
Vanessa wears me out and I want to drag out several rolls of duct tape! Yeah, Vanessa is playing the game, but now she's all tangled up in her own underwear! But even if Vanessa goes OTB, I'll be thoroughly surprised if she 'folds' (haha) on her machinations!

I'm glad Becky appears willing to make some game decisions.

Chacha said...

IAgirlsmom-
I agree with you.
I want Vanessa gone this week, I do not want Shelli gone in DE. Remember someone will be coming back in the house. At DE i really would like to see Steve out the door.

Sharon N said...

Ok, now this is too funny... Austin telling Liz that he didn't want to have to prove himself by running back and forth in ballerina slippers (during HOH comp). @@
His male ego must be so fragile... completely depending on what shoes he had to wear for comps? LMAO!!!!!

Chacha said...

I saw that a while ago. That is too funny.
I can see why he isn't in the wrestling world now.

Sharon N said...

Hard to believe that dude is younger than Shelli.
He must lead one heck of a hard life... looks more like he's in his 40's.

Sharon N said...

This HN rotation bit is getting tiring also.
Becky picked James, Jackie & Meg as HN's.
But maybe she's sending a message to everyone: don't get too comfy with me.

Anonymous said...

People do you really think these people care if we're entertained, the fact that they don't really know how to play the game to our liking means absolutely nothing to them, the problem is that some of us like some of the players and some of us don't,but they all went in there wanting to win the $500K, with the exception of Shelli, she obviously went in there looking for love. The days of Dr Will, Janelle,Kaysar, Nakomis and so many others are gone. Heck Dr Will never told a lie, he told just what he was going to do (nothing) and he won. BB has completely turned there cast around, they've had plenty of showmances, but they still played the game, so people now want that kind of caliber of people and they just aren't there. People loved Evil Dick he cursed them out said and did nasty things but hee made it to the end. Now people don't like James' way of playing because he lied to Shelli . So maybe BB needs to get better players, because this group here is just confused.

Sharon N said...

Anon,
I think most folks here agree that BB has to stop recruiting the BB-clueless, and stick with those who are fans/really want to play/been applying for years. No matter what age.

Seasons of 'The Beautiful People' rarely work. They are too busy preening for outside possibilities. The non-fan slurp-derp 'showmances' don't make for great tv either (just ask David how his gag reflex is doing... lol).

However, this season started to turn around a bit last week. Although I would have preferred Shelli gone, after listening to the last exit interview with Julie, I'm just fine with non-BB fan/all-around douchebag (Clay) being gone.

I hope Becky will follow through with her plans this week and that we will see Vanessa and Shelli scampering. There could be hope yet.... :)



David said...

Oh come on Sharon, just because I kept a bucket next to me during the show in case they showed the clip of them slurping each other, and they did complete with sound effects, at least on the show they cut it down to an almost acceptable time. It went on for at least 5 minutes on the feeds.

I want to know about this James getting America's player deal. I didn't vote on anything except if they should get a shark or a snake for the pool this week. I know James was up with Jason this week for most popular on fan sites but no voting went on that I can see.

Anonymous said...


While I like James, I'm also wondering how we can have an "America's" Player, if America didn't get to vote. I miss Janelle and Kaysar and all the great players from the old days.

Anonymous said...

Anon 1138...you're one of those people Jackie was saying are evil when you make fun of things people really can't control. @ Bucky beaver. It's old now.

Anonymous said...

I thought they said James had won some kind of America's Card. I'm not sure, surely they don't think they can put one over on us,the people here on Jackie's blog who has been here since day one,and she is best and most informative blogger of all. So I guess we might have to ask her if that indeed happened.

monty924 said...

It was a DR leak. You could hear James saying, "America's Player Card?" and then the production voice said "Congratulations" and it was sort of a funny congratulations. We don't know if James just said that to be funny and the production person on the other side played along. We also didn't pick Erik to be AP. That was set before the season started, so I can see BB throwing something in there on us. I don't think this AP thing is fully legit even though I DID hear it for myself. We'll know when they tell us.

Sharon N said...

Maybe naming James AP is one of those 'twists'?
ya know, those weekly twists that haven't been happening? LOL

However, James is such a prankster that I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he decided to see if he could pull another... by naming himself AP where someone could hear it. lol

monty924 said...

Exactly, but I doubt he knew that the DR audio feed was live. I'll just wait and see what comes of it. Now that Shelli and Steve are on the block, I want Austin or one of the twins to win veto and keep the noms the same. I still want Vanessa in there even if she is damaged goods at that point with the other side of the house. She brings the drama. :))

monty924 said...

And... just to add. It wasn't live to the house. Only we heard it.

Sharon N said...

Well, Steve isn't happy that Vanessa is the BD plan, so he might try to mess with them.
Better be careful though... he just might end up being the one to go!

David said...

LOL, and yep, as a BB fan he should know to never stir the hornets nest when you are sitting on the block.

monty924 said...

Clay's live chat with Jeff:

http://www.cbs.com/shows/big_brother/video/E7hN7ofvg_czeC37RjyXDFgeHPsBWA6Z/big-brother-live-chat-clay-honeycutt/

I always like these because we get more info or insight into what they were really thinking inside that house. BB doesn't give us enough true DRs anymore. Most of them these days are fluff stuff to set up comps or other things. Not saying that I love Clay now, but he did answer some things in my mind.

Come on Austin or twins. You need to win veto and NOT use it or Vanessa is in bad shape.

JonMD1267 said...

Monty hush, I want to see Vanessa on the block to just see how she will get out of it lol

monty924 said...

LOL, Jon... I don't this week :))

Sharon N said...

It's time to see Vanessa feel the heat for a while! Although Shelli would like to think she's been the one in charge of all the HOHs, it's really been Vanessa. But there's a very good chance she'll over-play now... via her own paranoia.

JonMD1267 said...

Aww Monty why you have to be like that lol Let's hope the Americas Player thing is hide or burn all hats in the house lol

monty924 said...

Yes, burn the green beanie :))
