Big Brother 17: Second HoH (non-live), Nominations Show Blog Party - August 16
Good evening! Ready for a blog party? While many of us already know the results of the PoV comp, tonight's episode will focus on the second HoH comp and nominations not shown (not done at the time) on Thursday. It's kind of like experiencing jet lag!
Tonight's show is running about a half-hour late here due to golf. But, when it starts, I'll update this entry with the major happenings as it airs here on the East Coast. Refresh the page to get the latest. As always, the real party is in the comments area. I hope to see you there!
Finally, 8:32pm, it starts with the recap.
Meg cries. People are confused. James thinks someone was in Steve's ear. Steve regrets winning HoH. And, yes, Vanessa was in his ear.
Steve cries. Julia tells us that they have to keep him safe because he kept them safe. Steve cries more. Meg cries.
I do not cry.
He tells the camera "about 50% acting." Hmm.
Becky, Meg and James think they're alone. Then Johnny Mac joins them. They think they need to get Steve on their side. Steve talks to them and it's evident that Vanessa is the one who told him Jackie was talking about evicting him. They offer to work with him.
The HoH comp has the backyard done up in emojis and a giant keyboard. Mixed Emoji. Done in rounds.
James against Meg - Meg wins, James out
John against Austin - John wins, Austin out
Vanessa against Julia - Julia wins, Vanessa out
Becky against Liz - Liz wins, Becky out
Meg against John - John wins, Meg out
Julia against Liz - Liz wins because Julia got wrong answer
Steve is doing a great job hosting!
John against Liz - (Commercial break) Lis wins and is the new HoH
Becky is worried, as she should be. She is sure that Vanessa will push for her to go home.
Sure enough, Vanessa's first words after their happy dance is that they need to get Becky out.
The twins, Austin and Vanessa discuss who to put up. The target is Becky. Liz doesn't want to send John home. They think of putting up John and Meg, replacing one with Becky after PoV. Then, John and Becky. But what if Becky wins PoV?
Becky spills the Vanessa beans over the Austin backdoor plan from Vanessa to the Austwins. Will that save her?
Vanessa tries to put the past argument with Johnny Mac behind her and wants to work with him. Heh. He calls her a bully and says he doesn't like it when she cries and yells at people.
She runs to Austwins and says Johnny Mac shouldn't be just a pawn this week. And she fusses about him. Johnny runs up to HoH and interrupts them claiming he's worried.
Nominations today! Liz tells us her nominees will be based on previous loyalties and who she considers a threat to her and her sister in the game.
She nominates Becky and Johnny Mac. JM - Veto superstar. Becky - undercover superwoman, great at everything. Best of luck in veto comp.
Johnny vows to us if he makes it through, he's going after Vanessa.
