Big Brother 17: Power of Veto Show Blog Party
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!
A side note before we get going: If you live in the NYC Metro viewing area (as I do), tomorrow night's live double eviction show will be airing on WLNY 10/55 instead of WCBS2 due to NFL football.
Let's get this party started!
Recap, promise of the BB comics veto ahead. And Steve vows he'll win the veto and make Becky his target next week. Vanessa is upset because Becky won't talk to her.
Jackie gets to take off her armor. Yikes, that seems to have happened so long ago when you watch the live feeds!
Vanessa gets Shelli to agree to choose her if she gets HG choice for the veto player pick, then gets Steve to agree to it, too. Johnny Mac is in the oust Vanessa camp due to his lack of allies in the game.
Johnny Mac talks to Steve, tells him they will send Vanessa home. He told Steve that he has to pick him (JM) for veto if he gets HG choice. Then he tells Steve that he would save Shelli. Steve bemoans the fact that his two closest allies hate each other ... to the camera, not to Johnny Mac, of course.
Gah. Liz tells us in the DR that Austin is growing on her. Ick.
Veto Player pick time! Becky draws Austin, Shelli gets HG Choice and goes for Vanessa, Steve draws Meg. Johnny Mac hosts.
Veto comp time! Comic book covers featuring the hamsters. 17 new superheroes, sneak into the studio via zipline, memorize the comics order, put them in correct order. The one in the shortest amount of time wins.
Steve wins the Power of Veto!
Vanessa is very worried ... par for the course for her. She tried to corner James but he escaped. She corners Becky with fast talk. Vanessa thinks Becky owes her for getting Jason out instead of her. Becky tells us she owes Vanessa nothing.
Time for the veto meeting:
Steve saves himself, Becky puts Vanessa on the block saying it's a personal decision for her own game. Doesn't know who she's with, who she's against, drops people like that when they don't benefit her game, etc.
