Big Brother 17: Live Feeds into Saturday Morning - August 29

Goody goody gumdrops

Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Subdued Seahorse Hamsters:
  • I forgot to mention ... half of the house are Have Nots this week. Oy!
  • John, Meg, James and Julia are the Have Nots. John volunteered, the rest didn't.
  • Vanessa thinks that if James comes off the block, Julia might be the best choice to put up. Neither Meg nor Julia seem to be able to win any comps and Julia would have the votes to stay.
  • Austin still has delusions of grandeur and thinks he and Liz are all that.
  • Wait until he finds out what all that they are!
  • He just can't get past all the cheering he heard when Johnny Mac went out the door on Thursday. He claims there's an applause sign.
  • In the evening's rather subdued Hamster House, there was no Potball, no Slingball, no bowling.
  • There hasn't been any Chocolate Wars since Meg got hit in the eye.
  • About the only moment of tomfoolery is when Steve and Julia tried to scare a sleeping Austin. Julia had foil on her head and a blanket wrapped around her.
  • I thought of Audrey.
  • Meg thinks she and James were lied about to Vanessa or Vanessa is making petty things blow up for her reasoning in putting them on the block.
  • Austwins are sucking up to Meg and James.
  • Hey, everyone is thinking of jury votes.
  • Because the yard was still open late (usually lockdown Friday evening to prep for the PoV comp), they got all confused and wondered if this weekend is Labor Day weekend.
  • Julia thinks there might be 28 days in August.
  • Mind you, she supposedly went to Loyola, if memory serves.
  • Liz did bring up a perfectly valid point -- Meg shouldn't be allowed to float until the end.
  • While she's very personable and often brings a lot of smiles in the house, Meg is basically a more likable Victoria. Those are my words, not Liz's.
  • Meg talked about Vanessa being paranoid.
  • Y'think?
  • James advised Meg to pick Julia if she gets the Houseguest's Choice chip -- because Julia can't win.
  • After all, if not for Liz and Austin, Julia too is a Victoria.
  • Meg thinks that Vanessa wants to work with James.
  • I think so, too. At least to a point, that is. She wants someone else strong to take out the Austwins so that she can rule over the non-connected bunch and hopefully win the game.
  • But, she doesn't want "the blood of Austwins" on her hands for jury vote reasons.
  • If she could work with Steve, Johnny Mac and James ... one of them could get the Out Damn Austwins Spot out of there and she'd be sitting pretty.
  • All are nestled in bed with dreams of sugarplums in their heads as I get this posted.

Liz in a blanket
In the dentist chair again
Ladies love cool James?
At least Austin and Liz are out of that bed

I am giddy that with the amount of people left in the house and no one wants to make the big move and are waiting for James to make it but yet they continually target him for eviction. Like who do they expect to do it then lol. If it comes down to a Vanessa and Liz final two I'm not sure how that would play out jury wise.

ceemurph said...

^^Right?^^
James doesn't play unless he's HOH, then he plays HARD. They should throw him HOH every other week to get out the big guns. Would be fun to see what would happen if only floaters made it to the end (ahem...Andy) ;)

ceemurph said...

Haha at least I like all the floaters this year!

Witt said...

I'd pick James and Johnny Mac to have dinner with any day of the week. I laugh when I see that Austin thinks the world loves him and Liz!! (gag)

Terry is a Texan! said...

Witt totally agree with James...but Johnny Macs weird way of talking/shouting would grate me
Austin is in for some rude awakenings.....blech

Sharon N said...

In real life, I'd bet that James doesn't lack for friends, including females. He's been kind and thoughtful with most there, especially Meg with the pain in her knees. Yeah, he has a bit of a crush. So what? In my experience, "Crushes" haven't always acted considerately!

He has said a couple crude things we, as Today's Women, don't like to hear (so have a few others). In reality, I've heard a lot worse from male friends and educated businessmen! His one downside (for me) is the practical jokes. Never cared for that kind of stuff, but they ARE in the BB House and supposed to entertain us. Silly games and trickery are about all they've got...unless viewers would prefer to watch hour upon hour of pool and/or chess!

monty924 said...

I stayed up until after 3:00 this morning just watching Meg/James/JMac in the HN room with a smile on my face the entire time. I'll be so bummed if James goes out first on Thursday. :((

Sharon N said...

I'm not altogether sure Vanessa realizes James has her game all figured out. He had it nailed to a tee when he was talking to Meg last night.

Vanessa kind of talks like she wants Meg to go instead of James. She builds him up a bit to AusTwins (which kinda suits Aushole), but tears down Meg to them. Maybe she's decided to keep James, realizing she would have a stronger player to help bring down the AusTwins 3-some. I don't think she feels Steve/JMac can help do that job "for her."

Sharon N said...

VETO players picked: Vanessa, Austin, Liz, Julia, Meg, James
If it's a physical comp, it won't bode well for Meg/James, especially with her knee so bad (being iced).

Chacha said...

I think the Veto is Stay/Fold or how bad do you want it.

Sharon N said...

Stay/Fold: If I recall, it's kind of a crap shoot... sometimes guessing, sometimes remembering inane facts.

How Bad Do You Want It: James indicated (last night) that if there was a chance for him to take money, he'd probably do it. He has no clue that he will probably end up Fan Favorite.


monty924 said...

He did say that but I don't think he will when it comes down to it. Meg also was telling him not to do that. I'm hoping one of them comes down and Steve or JMac goes up and Austin gets a clue and keeps Meg or James. One can wish. :))

uncartie said...

I of course am on the other side.@@ I don't like James at all. Even though he's my pool pick I hope he goes this week. Do you guys know that he said if he wins that he wants to "gamble with the money"? What a waste that would be. Can't see him working with Vanessa if Meg were to go.

As Jackie pointed out Meg is funny and very likeable but she had no business being cast. The whole time she's acted like she was on vacation. I'd hate to see her float into the final 2 but I wouldn't mine is she won America's favorite.

Sharon N said...

They all say a lot of things, mostly talking through their hats.
James has also said he wants the money for his daughter, so it's kind of take your pick what he'd do. Probably a little of both, along with hunting, fishing and a few other things he'd never get a chance to do otherwise.

The young are "right now" people who rarely think of doing something like putting it all into investments for the future. The here and now of doing fun things is just too tempting. The rest of the house guests are exactly the same... except Vanessa and she's already wealthy from... GAMBLING.

Despite anything James would say to save himself right now, I don't really think he'd work with anyone except JMac... and JMac has said he wants to take out the AusTwins. So that would also work for James.

Witt said...

With all due respect, who cares what James would spend the money on? If he wins, he earns the right to do with it as he sees fit. If he wants to gamble it all away, his choice. I've never gone to Vegas for a trip since I just don't have the extra to blow (and it would be blown).

Would love to see James and JMac hook up as a team.

Anonymous said...

I guess if Vanessa won the money she wouldn't GAMBLE with it, please, that's all she knows other than how to be a masterful liar.

Witt said...

@ Anon 3:06.....

Vanessa is also a masterful crier!! LOL

Anonymous said...

I agree with you Witt. I, for one, would not mind if JMac and James would be on a team. I was all for taking Vanessa out but right now I just want Ausin and those twins out. If they were smart, JMac, Vanessa, Steve, James and Meg would team out and take those three out. Not sure what these people are thinking. Zoe in California

monty924 said...

I don't care what any of them do with the money. None of my business, lol. I seriously doubt that James would gamble away 500K but if he did it, it's his money to do so. He's a joker in the house but if you listen to his private convos when he isn't joking, he's a straight up guy who loves his daughter and wants to provide for her. He's ex military and worked in corrections, both admirable jobs to me. I think he's got a good head on his shoulders.

Beyond that, I just want him to win veto so it isn't a runaway game here at the end. It makes it more interesting and exciting if he stays and teams up with JMac and Steve. That's all I want. Not a cookie cutter final like last season where we all knew that Derrick had it in the bag.

monty924 said...

*the only exception to my above comment was S9's Adam J who used his money to become an Oxycontin drug dealer. That was disgusting and he deserved what he got for it.

Anonymous said...

SHAME ON ALL OF THEM FOR LETTING THE TWINS IN THE HOUSE! And compounding letting the dumbnuts Austin riding their tail to make it a THREESOME IN NUMBERS GAME!!!!!

James finally said it to Meg on 8-29 that "they never should have allowed the twins in the house" REALLY?!?#!!!! Finally a wake up call..........lil late.

We have all been screaming it not to happen,don't let the twins in the house......so lets see how this plays out now.

Then there is Vanessa...............someone who actually is playing the game. Can she hold it together to the final two AND key, get the jury to vote for her? I bet , NOT.

Now, lets see what finally happens with this snooze feast of a so called game.

Who gets the $500k??????

monty924 said...

After the feeds cut to the comp, I went back and watched the last two season's Stay/Fold comps. It's funny that both seasons had a planned strategy and both failed. It worked out for the HOH both times though, so Vanessa has that in her favor.

Witt said...

Monty, you are right about Adam J....what a disappointment to hear about all that ?!

I think if Vanessa was gone the Austwins would collapse....how many times during his HOH did he ask Vanessa what to do? (Then talked behind her back about everything.) After all, doesn't Julia think August has 28 days?

Petals said...

It's been a 2+ hour comp so far. *fingers crossed* that it isn't a comp for which the Foul Four have already planned a "cheat method".

David said...

Coming up on 3 hours now, no way this was a stay or fold competition. maybe they finally got something new or doing something like the egg through the wire competition.

Sharon N said...

Could be the 'How Much Do You Want it' comp. Those can take quite a long time, what with grabbing what someone else has! lol

David said...

I was trying to think of the comps they have not done yet this year. Egg in the wire, dark room, ball pit, how bad do you want it, cornhole toss, slotted maze, stay or fold, counting objects, wall climb, is all I can think of atm.

Sharon N said...

I don't remember... did Julie announce this Thursday is going to be a DE?

David said...

Yes, she said it will be a double elimination this week.

uncartie said...

Anon 3:06,Vanessa doesn't "gamble" per se. She is an exceptional woman with superior intelligence. When she "gambles" the odds are usually in her favor. I happen to know quite a bit about gambling myself so I was intrigued to learn more.

She was explaining yesterday to the twins how she got started. She mentioned sports betting which is next to impossible to beat unless you're booking the bets yourself. I wasn't buying it until she explained that what she was doing was whats known as "jacking" or "middling" the line. Simply explained.You find someone or a hotel which has got a team -6 1/2points and another place where the line is say 7 1/2 or maybe 8. You then bet the team - 6 1/2 and take the other team +8. If the favorite wins by 7 you collect on both ends,8 you win on one end and tie the other. If it ends on any other number all you lose is the juice (10% of one bet).

She knows every angle. She related that she could also count cards in blackjack and would sometimes work with a team to beat a casino. Poker is a slam dunk for her since it's all odds and math combined with a knowledge of tells or physical mannerisms that will tip you off to what they have or what they're betting on.

I don't care what James does with his money. I would just prefer to see someone else win that would put it to good use. When they did the piece on James home town I thought it was odd that the only people they could find to speak to speak up for him were his drinking buddies.

Last but not least...this takes the cake@@

Sat 11:58 AM BBT Meg tells James she'll be mad if it's the counting comp & everyone uses strategy against them.

LMAO!

Petals said...

If anyone came to my hometown or whatever - all my friends would have a margarita & partying.
His parents chose not to be on the show (so did Becky's & someone else's).

Jus sayin, I disagree with anyone's theory that James is gonna party away his winnings. In fact he can't - anything he earns is declared income. He has to pay child support, so a large percentage of his winnings is already spoken-for.

Petals said...

And this season was a pretty unfairly-stacked game: 5 super fans in a house of recruits! Ridiculous odds. And all but one of the super fans remain.

I Production learns their lesson. Next season, either make it ALL recruits, or ALL fan applicants. Otherwise, it'll be another snooze fest.

jessica UNderwood said...

Any news on the veto ?

jessica UNderwood said...

And yes SHAME on them for letting the twins in that was the most stupid game move!

Sharon N said...

I agree Petals. There's absolutely no reason why there shouldn't be a season of ALL fan applicants...or all recruits. Of course, my preference would be going 'back to the beginning' with all green recruits! After all, the first Big Brother show only had recruits.

There's absolutely no reason why BB couldn't make the show more interesting by letting us watch totally clueless people... nobody being able to name which comps are coming up, and how they are played. As we've seen with recruits that watch a few (2-3) past shows before entering the House, they are still pretty much clueless. lol

Anonymous said...

Uncartie,

Okay, LOL

Petals said...

JAMES WON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sharon N said...

OMG... Petals, our dream comes true!!!!
JAMES WON POV!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!

Sharon N said...

I FLIPPIN' LOVE IT!!!!!

Sharon N said...

Whole lot of sweating and worrying going to be happening... LMAO!!!!!
Gads, I can't stop laughing.


Meg might still go, but I'm hoping Vanessa will take this opportunity to unload one of the AusTwins. She'd have the numbers if she put one of them up and out.

Anonymous said...

WAY TO GO JAMES!!!!

jessica UNderwood said...

I'm glad!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sharon N said...

The house is a mess... everyone but Vanessa (too busy pi$$ing/moaning) working on cleaning it up. Comp must have been one of those "hunt and find" things like the balloons they had a while back.

Anonymous said...

Sharon N

Again you are too funny Vanessa to busy pi$$ing/moaning.

LMAO!

Glenn said...

On other site James tells Meg he will try to make a deal with twins to save Meg. He says he will tell vanessa to her face he is now going after her.

Glenn said...

Vanessa will now have to break another deal. She broke her deal of not putting up James or Meg from the Clay week. Does she break her deal with john or Steve? Does she break her deal with Austin or the Twins? This is not a good week for her heading into a double eviction.

Sharon N said...

Dangerous to come right out and tell someone you are after them, but guess he really has nothing to lose. It's plain to him that AusTwins & Vanessa wanted him out. If he wants to save Meg, he'll have to work with Vanessa this week.

Vanessa is in a tough spot now and she'll have to make a decision she wanted to avoid. She's made alliances and promises to everyone but James/Meg. Question is, which one has she given her word to will she break her word to? Who won't matter as much to her? heh

Anonymous said...

I hope James does not say that to Vanessa, what good would that do, even though she can't play for HOH next week, he and others should just plan and do it, like everyone is saying they have left the Austwins in there too long, along with Vanessa.

Sharon N said...

Vanessa: "Big Brother is rooting for James!" Says they keep f*cking giving him comps to win.

Happy Dancing here!!! LMAO

uncartie said...

I say Van puts up Jmac and Meg goes. Little Caesar James can rant and rave all he wants,unless he wins HOH he can't do a thing. The numbers are still way against him.

Glenn said...

The Funny thing is she literally made deals with everyone in the house including James and Meg. She had wanted to team up with john and Steve to go after Austwins. This is her chance to now. James and Steve and John would win the votes 3 to 2. If James on the block the Twins would be the votes. If a Twin then Austin and other Twin as the votes.

Sharon N said...

uncartie, I think you're right... that Vanessa will break her word to JMac and put him up along with Meg. Of course, AusTwins are so stupidly snowed by her that they'll still vote the way she says.

JAMES for next HOH!!!! and then POV!!!
James is the only one who has figured out Vanessa's game... right down to a tee.

David said...

Ohhhhh great news!! Dictator Vanessa does not get her way. LMAO I guess I will have to go fire up the feeds now and watch the fall-out from this. =) Should be a great evening.

uncartie said...

The green hat is back on Commander Vanessa's head! All is well.

Anonymous said...

I think Ms Paranoia might be in a bit of pickle, she can't play for HOH and Austwins are just waiting for someone to help them get Vanessa out, this might be it. She can't depend on Steve, he is almost as paranoid as she is, didn't she call him out when she won POV and would not take him off the block, he's another one that needs to go, Superfan NOT.

Sharon N said...

Knew you'd be happy David! :)

Don't know though, you might want to turn the feeds off at midnight.
There will be a lot of smacky-mouth and kissy-face going on in the Purple Room.
(you know I can't resist reminding you) LOL

uncartie said...

Vanessa to DR. Grodner's elves will help her draw up the next play.

Sharon N said...

Vanessa's green beanie is her Thinking Cap.
She might stick with getting out Meg, but she's already been thinking about whether it's a wise idea when there are bigger (more threatening) fish to fry. It's just not the timing she preferred.

Anonymous said...

Let Meg go, who cares, she has done absolutely nothing, FLOATER. However she is so adorable to others, it would be a shame if she got to the end.

Sharon N said...

Anon, it all depends on whether who wants to win.
They are all thinking that taking either Meg to the end would be a sure win for themselves. The same can be said about Julia and, unfortunately, for JMac and Steve as well.

uncartie said...

Sharon,I think we can both agree that Vanessa will flip back and forth about a dozen times before she makes her decision. It's gonna be a long night.

Sharon N said...

^^ yep. And then she'll flip back/forth for several days to keep everyone confused. LOL

Anonymous said...

SharonN
All I can think of is that James needs some HELP, Meg is dead weight, other than Vanessa who playing the game (along with James) these people just vote with emotions and whatever way the winds is blowing, remember Andy, he was a floater.

Sharon N said...

Anon, the ONLY plus for James with Meg is that she's the only one he can actually trust, and he knows it.

The best thing is for Vanessa to decide this is the time for her to eliminate one of the other power players. She already suggested Julia to Austin, but needless to say, he's not happy with that plan. The way her mind works, maybe she'll use his lack of cooperation to put up him or Liz. Not going to happen, but that would be my dream come true!!! LOL

David said...

Aaahhhh, drinking down those tears of Vanessa's and Julia's, they are so sad. (I am watching flashback of aftermath) Soooo yummy, mmmmmmmmmmm

Julia and Liz both said they intentionally threw Megs stuff all over the place because they hate her. Sheeeesh, they definitely act like the proverbial mean sorority girls they are.

Sharon N said...

The funny part David...
Meg acted (pretended?) like her clothes being tossed didn't bother her.
After all, she found her lost bra! LMAO

The thing that gets those twins most is being ignored.
