Big Brother 17: Power of Veto Show Blog Party - August 5
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!
James is not scared. It's good to know that. Clay's biggest fear was being put up on the block next to Shelli. Shelli cries a tear. Clay tries to intimidate James by yelling at him. James is not scared.
Now Clay and Shelli are scaring Vanessa. They blame her saving Austin for them being on the block. Vanessa cries.
Shelli and Clay talk to James. They go on about having had his back all along. James doesn't fall for their twisted tales. Shelli cries.
Shelli backtracks and goes for damage control with Vanessa. "This alliance is still on." Shelli cries. Vanessa cries. "Why this week? I'll be spending the rest of the time in the jury house without HIM!"
Time to pick PoV players! James wants to win to keep the nominations the same. James draws Houseguest's Choice, goes for Jackie. Shelli draws Becky. Clay draws Vanessa. Vanessa is not thrilled.
Becky sits in with Jackie and James as they talk about winning the veto and keeping the nominations the same.
Time for the PoV comp! Kingdom of Big Brotherhood. Played in rounds, catapult darts. Reveal the prize inside crowns. It's the comp where they can trade prizes with rewards and punishments. The onlookers can drink wine while they watch.
Vanessa scored 26. Clay 19. Becky 11. Shelli 22. Jackie 1. James 29. Jackie out. Jackie's prize is the veto. She knows it will go.
In the second round, Shelli's dart lands in the water. Shelli is out. She wins a Knight in Shining Armor (costume). She takes the veto from Jackie.
Round three, Vanessa out. She wins an Ireland vacation, keeps it.
Round four, Clay is out. Knight of Shining Armor, 24 hours of shining the shining knight's armor. He takes the Ireland trip from Vanessa.
Last round, Becky is out. She wins $5,000, keeps it.
James wins Castle Guard, doing guard duties 2400 time in 24 hours. He likes the idea of the money, but takes the veto. Shelli is the Castle Guard and James wins the Veto.
Meg is all woozy and she and Clay kind of cling on each other, both a bit teary. Clay, sober, is kind of a hands on kind of guy during this!
Jackie gets her armor for the week and Vanessa must buff it for the day. Shelli got a sword -- must hit a punching bag, stab a target and knocking a bar down with the sword. Every 100 she has to run in the house ringing a bell to let the kingdom know they're safe. She does it!
Shelli tells us she has information from the twins that might sway James to use the veto. They talk to him. He tells them that he would need enough information to put someone else up. Shelli tells James about the Austin/Judas bit. She says that Judas voted for Audrey, Judas changed the target to him. She throws Austin under the bus. James tells them he'll think about it and then decide.
Veto meeting time! Clay says how much he cares fro Shelli. Shelli they've been good to their word, don't deserve to be nominated. James says they turned their backs on him, left him in the dark about stuff and does not use the veto.
