Big Brother 17: HoH Endurance Comp Updates - September 10

Once the live feeds return, this post will be updated with the happenings!



Austin and Vanessa tied for the lead with three eggs each. 10:10pm ET

All seem to be going for the HOH and saving the Luxury for last.

10:13pm ET - Vanessa has four, takes the lead. (Thanks to Steve for the announcements!) A minute later, Liz got her second egg in.

John now tied with Vanessa

Austin in pain and slowing down.
10:16pm ET - Vanessa in the lead again, got 5th egg.
10:17pm ET - Austin gets 4th egg in.
Fishcam interlude.

Counting the eggs before they hatch

Another fishcam break. Steve thought Vanessa was starting egg #7.

10:24pm ET - Austin 5, JMac 6, Vanessa 7
10:26pm ET - JMac gets 7, Austin up to 6, Vanessa is still a bit ahead of Johnny Mac. Liz might as well go for the luxury -- she just finished 4.

Vanessa's slight edge over John


10:35pm ET - Austin gets his 8th egg. But either Vanessa or John will have this.
10:37pm ET - Johnny Mac gets 9, but Vanessa is already on her way to ten.

10:38PM ET - VANESSA WINS HOH!
Liz, far behind, got the luxury prize.

Austin has a big lead but Jmac has figured out how to drop two or three holes at a time down the mesh.

Usually we hit it at about 945 on eviction night

jamie Shonk said...

oh man...i dont Austin or Vanessa to win lol..this is going to be a very bad week with them in Power

Anonymouse said...

Vanessa Austin and Jmac all have three egs. In that order

uncartie said...

Vanessa planned for this comp within the last week I think. I don't remember who she was strategizing with though. I think she'll get better as the competiton gets longer.

monty924 said...

I think this is Vanessa's to lose. JMac is with her but Austin is behind now. She's smoking through this.

Anonymouse said...

JMAC in sec9nd. Austin tiring. Think Vanessa has it, unless she feels safer with JMac.

Bet a deal comes so they both have excuse for not nominating each other

uncartie said...

Van half way there

David said...

I am surprised Vanessa is going for it. I guess she figures someone needs to beat Austin. If she wins she will definitely have to show her hand on who she wants out. Probably Steve and maybe austin on the block. Hard to say for sure.

monty924 said...

She has seven already... not sure how many JMac has

uncartie said...

Van now leading with 7

Sharon N said...

Off topic...
Is there a pool going for Survivor this season?
If so and it's not too late, I want in! :)

monty924 said...

I can't tell what Jmac has

Susan in MA said...

Who will Vanessa put up if she wins? I still hope Johnny Mac wins. This season has been nothing but disappointing!

uncartie said...

Revised Current standings (per Steve): 4 eggs Aus, 5 eggs JMac, 6 eggs Van & 3 eggs Liz

uncartie said...

Van 7,Jmac 2nd with 7,Aus 6

Jackie said...

Liz should go for the luxury. She's too far behind.

uncartie said...

How funny would it be if Liz won Luxury and announced she would take Julia?

uncartie said...

Van 8 Liz has luxury with 4

David said...

Gooooooo JMac, it is neck and neck it looks like from that screen shot.

uncartie said...

Vanessa is the only one doing hers on the side panel. She must have figured out an advantsge

9 Van Jmac 2nd with 9

I would like to thank all the live feed watchers who are updating the comments sections every day and providing us with updates tonight as well as Jackie for year after year of bloggertainment. Truly, thank you all!

monty924 said...

Vanessa got her 10th... Johnny Mac should go for the luxury now

uncartie said...

Van wins. Woo hoo!! Goodbye bigfoot I hope

Judy said...

Jackie, I agree - thanks to Steve for the play-by-play!

Anonymous said...

just 10 eggs!?! Why not a dozen!?!? Bogus.

Sharon N said...

Let's hope Vanessa puts up Austin/Liz... but I have a feeling she'll put up either JMac or Steve along with Austin or Liz. I don't know, but doubt she'll put up both JMac/Steve together.

monty924 said...

Vanessa will nom one from each side and then work her magic until Monday ;-)

Thanks Jackie.

meb said...

This was a good one. Thanks Jackie and everyone for keeping us current.

Petals said...

Anyone but Aushole!!! Please!

If Van wins, she'll nom Aus & Liz, right? The logic being that... wait. What am I thinking? Any logic & rationale left this game a lloooong while back, LOL

I was hoping JohnnyMac would prove to be EGGSceptionally good at this, with his dental dexterity.

ACK, this is EGGSasperating!

uncartie said...

HaHa Monty. Paging the Green beanie!

Thanks for putting up with me all these years,Jackie and best wishes for your future.

Cheryl in NC said...

Surprised I thought Van did not want to win...interesting that she did not let Jmac win...does not bode well for him

uncartie said...

She'l nominate Liz and a pawn then backdoor Austin.

Anonymous said...

was that austin begging viewers to put him on the bold and beautiful?

David said...

Let Vanessa win the luxury comp also now. That will give everyone left in the house an opporunity to compare notes while she is gone. I am sure she would not allow that to happen.

Cheryl in NC said...

Surprised Liz did not go for luxury early on when she was already out of running

uncartie said...

Cheryl,Jmac is the safest one in the house now. Van has been working with him since he came back in the house. If not for her he would have been evicted 2 weeks ago,

Jackie said...

Liz did go for the luxury comp and got it.

uncartie said...

Cheryl,Liz did put an egg in luxury 1st but I'm not sure how it plays out.

Anonymous said...

why was that nit wit Julia telling Julie she loves Austin, he's amazing, etc etc? yuck!!! that interview and well, the whole episode just felt icky. was Julia unaware she was speaking of Austin? was she confused? having a mini-stroke? did she misunderstand Julie's questions? or lying? those are the only options.

monty924 said...

I agree completely uncartie. I think JMac is golden because he doesn't appear to be a threat to Vanessa's game. It will be Austin/Liz/Steve going home on Tuesday.

I'm happy with that :))

Anyone think that Liz will get to do a dinner with a jury member like Dan did in S10? I doubt it would help her though and she wouldn't know what to do with it.

Sharon N said...

I'm thinking Vanessa has extra hand/finger dexterity from playing cards (shuffling, etc.), which would definitely have helped her on this. JMac with his dental work would have good dexterity as well.

Still hoping Vanessa will put up Austin/Liz.

SueGee said...

Liz would pick to go to dinner with her sister duh...no help there

David said...

LOL @ Anon 10:55. It sounds like it is not just Austin and Liz that are in for a rude awakening when they get out of the house but Julia too.

Cheryl in NC said...

Unc from your keyboard to Vanessas ears...I hope you are right.

Unknown said...

She has to or she risks Austin saving Liz and Steve and JMAC on the block

SueGee said...

Do they know the new schedule for next week?

uncartie said...

Anon 10:55,Julia interview was like a bad beauty contestant interview when Julie asked her why she picked Austun to go up against in the comp. She was clueless.

Sharon,Vanessa's edge here was that she was planning for this comp a week ago. As the comp grew longer she eventually figured out a strategy and the rest is history.

Jackie said...

SueGee - Julie said it would be a surprise for them (the Tuesday eviction).

Anonymouse said...

Looks like she told Steve a Austin us the definate target

Jackie said...

I'm going to be turning the word verification back on, but feel free to hang out! I just need a bit of rest -- long day at work.

SueGee said...

See everyone Sunday!!

Thanks Jackie!!

I still have an hour before the "live" show comes on here

SueGee on the LeftCoast

David said...

Goodnight Jackie =)

Thanks for all you do and for letting us trash your pool.

Sharon N said...

^^ David! LOL

Thanks for staying up and giving us the results Jackie.

Petals said...

I just watched Julia's eviction - how hilarious! Julie Chen very pointedly asks what she thinks of her sister's relationship with Aushole, and she (Chen) doesn't even try to hide her surprise.
And the audience! Dead silence. If she wasn't such an airhead, she might gotten a clue about
how detested Aus & Liz really are.

Petals said...

Oh - what do you all think of Lady MacBeth proposing to Mel at the finale'? Kiss of death for the relationship? Yeah, that's what I thought, too.

Sorry, Sharon. I should've hung around; we could have watched together :) Maybe Sunday, OK my friend?

uncartie said...

Remember Wednesday episode when "Judas" was growling? Well now he's doing major league
groveling. Don't buy what he's shoveling, Van

Sharon N said...

Petals, that's ok, I bugged out to watch Jackie's comp updates! lol
You really think Van will propose to Mel at Finale?

She's working her magic poor-poor me routine on everyone, getting them all to spill 'deals' they have with everyone. Slimy Austin is so desperate that he's tossing Liz 'off the bus' ... saying he doesn't have a F2 with her - only with Van. @@ We all know she won't swallow that douchbag's BS.

I really really hope she will put up Austin/Liz and one of them leaves.
Preferably Sasquatch!

Nickelpeed said...

Crap. Vanessa will more than likely put up Steve and JMac. I hope not, though. Crap, Crap, Crap.

Sharon N said...

Penny,
Much as I'd like Austin/Liz up, I think she's more likely to put up Austin with Steve ... one off each side

Sharon N said...

My predictions, contingent on the result of POV:
If Austin/Liz go up, Austin out.
If Austin up with Steve/JMac, split vote and Van putting Austin out.
If Steve/JMac up, Steve out.
I think the result will be Liz out if it's Liz vs JMac/Steve.

Could be wrong, but I really can't see Van putting up anyone but Austin/Liz.

Sharon N said...

Keep changing my mind!! lol

David said...

I think at this point Vanessa will be thinking about who she can beat in the finals and that will leave Austin, Liz, and Steve on the outs as far as she is concerned. She probably has it sewn up but she doesn't know that. Since she over thinks everything I am not sure who she will put up or who she really wants out. I would hope she will put up Austin and Steve but you never really know with her until she does it.

If she puts up Steve it may finally be the wake-up call the idiot needs to make him grow a pair if he survives. Probably not. Vanessa will just say I saved you after I just tried to evict you you moron, now get up there, win the HoH, and evict Austin, Liz, or JMac. whoever is left.

Sharon N said...

Doubt Steve grow a pair even then, David.
Vanessa would convince him Austin is her target.
It's worrisome that she 'appears' to be considering keeping Austin/Liz. @@
Vanessa doesn't know they already said (before eviction) that they have NO intention of keeping any bargains with her. No clue what she's thinking since she's doing her usual paranoid-yammering and not giving anything up to us!

Sharon N said...

Surely Vanessa knows she'd be more likely to win in F2 vs JMac, and probably Steve too.
JMac is just strange and most of the hamsters think he's weird/didn't do anything.
Steve is weird/gutless and I doubt he would win... unless he's F2 with JMac.
If Liz and Julia are both in Jury, they would vote for Austin, and James probably would too.

Rationally: she should dump Austin, then Liz, and then take her chances vs JMac/Steve.
If she keeps AustLiz, it's an error that might be her Waterloo.


uncartie said...

Guys,She is doing her usual confrontational probing. Creating little dramas and watching how they react to them. In a way it's the same thing Audrey did. The difference is that Vanessa can remember everything and not get easily caught in lies like Audrey.

Sharon N said...

Or....maybe not.
As of right now, it's looking more like she just might plan on taking Aushole to F2.
She "says" he'll get the 500k and she'll get the 50k....but I doubt she really believes he'll win. Gawd, I can't abide the thought of him being there for the remaining time and actually winning ANY money.

David said...

I was considering what she might do and thought she might pull something like that. Austin knows most of her secrets and could inform the jury about them so keep him in the game as long as possible or hope someone else takes him out. Vanessa already thinks the jury hates her, no reason to send another one there who also might turn Julia, and Liz if she goes, against her. I would guess Steve and JMac on the block with Liz or Austin as back-up.

If it becomes a Liz or Austin, with a JMac or Steve on the block because of the veto a tie vote is needed to force Vanessa to choose who to save. Show her hand.
