Big Brother 17: Zingbot Power of Veto Show Blog Party - August 26
Good evening! Ready for a blog party? We have the Zingbot ahead!
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!
We have to get through the "Previously on Big Brother ..." segment first.
Okay, Johnny Mac and Steve are on the block. Austin claims that's the best move for his game. Um. Okay, whatever. Steve gives Vanessa credit for being good.
Vanessa plays nicey-nice with Austin. He plays along. Steve questions who the target is -- Austin tells him Johnny Mac unless Steve comes off the block, then maybe Vanessa.
James pranks once again.
Time to pick players for the veto comp! Austin draws Vanessa. Johnny Mac draws Meg. Steve draws Julia (who had just whined about never being picked).
Steve thinks Vanessa might save him and wants to rebuild their relationship.
Zingbot comes in the house. Newly Zingle and got an upgrade - Zingbot 9000 now on Twitter. To James - Meg will take you to the Friend Zone after the show. Liz - Confused, less attractive, less intelligent, less charming ... oh, wait -- that's Julia. Steve - Less cool than a trombonist who cries for his mommy? Nothing!
Please take out the trash, it stinks in here, that's just Austin! Meg - Your New York attitude is very stuck in the city, too bad your gameplay is stuck in the city. JM - 4/5 dentists agree the only thing less attractive than your laugh is your back hair! Vanessa -- Playing a masterful game, assuming that game is The Crying Game. Liz -- You've become such an important part of Austin's life ... are you more excited to meet his mom, his dad or his GIRLFRIEND?
Liz is ticked.
Veto comp time. James and Liz are secluded and allowed to watch. Julia is up first for the morph/Zingbot related comp.
Julia's time is 4:45.
Steve is up next. Weird, they let Julia in to watch with James and Liz. Steve is out -- he didn't beat Julia's time. Then he enters the room.
Austin is up next. He also can't beat Julia's time and is out, in the room with the others.
Vanessa is up. Her time is great! 2:51. She takes over the lead.
Johnny Mac next. He's out now.
Meg goes up. Heh. She's out.
Vanessa wins the Power of Veto.
Vanessa talks to Johnny Mac. She quizzes him about his previous alliances (that have been voted out). He tells her he's alone in the game. She claims to be alone in the game, too. He offers to work with her going forward. She hints that she might use the veto, but has to talk to Austin. (So, the blame won't be on her if she doesn't! She's thinking ahead, for sure.) She does push for JM to stay with Austin. He's not keen on her idea of putting James on the block.
She tells JM that Austin doesn't want her to use it and, if she does, the Austwins will target her. JM tells her that he was in a five-person alliance last week to get her out. She confronts Julia who tells her it was Steve's idea.
She lights into Steve. He denies orchestrating it and she says he doesn't have her vote.
Veto meeting time.
Steve - Will respect whatever strategic decision you make.
JM - A gazelle asking a tiger to hang out, don't use it on me.
She gives a short bitter speech about Steve.
Vanessa decided NOT to use the veto to save either of them.
