Big Brother 17: Live Feeds, Final HoH Part 2 Winner - September 19

This is Vanessa on pain meds

Not that it's a big difference from Vanessa not on pain meds when she's in a napping mood! She doesn't talk as much. But, with it down to the three, she doesn't need to continually run around in paranoia. Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of What Do We Do For Four Days Now?:
  • I didn't give you an update yesterday evening because nothing much happened other than lots of napping and lots of studying for the comp.
  • Oh. And lots of fussing and complaining about pain from Vanessa.
  • The big action, Part Two of the Final HoH comp didn't start until nearly 10pm their time.
  • Make that 1am my time!
  • Ack.
  • Naturally, it was blocked to the live feeds and we got Jeffish instead.
  • Am I the only one who wishes they'd just go back to the theme music in the long feeds blocks? When it was music, I could nap and when their voices took over, that would wake me up.
  • Anyway ... STEVE won Part Two of the HoH Comp.
  • He was giddy beyond belief for a while, but eventually calmed down.
  • Liz, on the other hand, was quasi-calm with occasional extended bouts of tears.
  • From their talking, it seems the comp was BB-related crossword puzzle format with them in harnesses.
  • Liz pointed out that Steve's harness left a big red mark on his lower back.
  • Steve thinks Vanessa will win Part 3.
  • Hmm. If he has the distrust of Vanessa he's voiced to us in the past and he's a true BB fan, he'd better work his butt off to win Part 3 so it's HIS choice who goes to final two.
  • I'm hoping he's not going to trust Vanessa to take him there!
  • Maybe she would, maybe not.
  • The time limit for the comp was 90 minutes. 
  • They finished it in 30.
  • Feeds were blocked for nearly 90 minutes anyway.
  • They're all asleep now.

I did it! I did it!

Sorry, feeders, I'm emotional tonight.

If Steve wins part three this will be his speech " I'm sorry Liz, I promised Vanessa I would take her in the final two and besides I just love her so much and I can't wait to tell all of my friends that I have a new best friend now who beat me down (literally) and she is now the best player to ever play the game" and to the jury he'll say, please vote for Vanessa she deserves to win, and I would say " you're right fool, because you had no business in the game"

I'm past the point of any good will feelings I had for Steve. Him throwing around this "superfan" claim and then doing the polar opposite of anyone who has ever watched the show also the fact that he obviously has some issues and has no business being in that house (or anyone that requires medication such as Vanessa). I enjoy the Big Brother ride each year, I just would like to have the job of screening the people being considered for the show since you can just phone it in with a checklist and call it s day lol

Petals said...

Totally agree with you Jon. Steve traded-in his "fan card" for a "Van card".
She has controlled his game from day 1, becoming his surrogate Mommie (Dearest). And now he's giving her the 3rd comp? WTF.

I have finally been able to vote again after 3 days - maybe they fixed the problem. Of course, the votes are still going to be totally skewed because people couldn't vote for their favorite. I had 60 votes I could not get to james

It's been such a pleasure to read all of your posts, but the one you posted about there not being enough Pepto-Bismol in California to help Steve's nervous stomach after him having to make a particular decision, was absolutely priceless,I have three other highly respected and funny posters, of course we have to give all honors to Jackie, she is phenomenal , witty, funny and such a gracious host to allow us here to talk and vent here, the other two posters that have helped to make my days are Petals and SharonN, I've made comments to them several times, thanking them making me laugh. I think there was a few meds being used on BB 15, remember Amanda and I think one other person was taking aderall, and then there have been times when some of them definitely needed meds even if they were not on them. I don't post much but I do read all of them and you guys have been very entertaining, much better than the show at times.

Oh boy I know Steve is really making his family proud LMAO, I told you, we all have watched this fool for so long, he is totally predictable, please CBS get this nightmare over with, so he thinks Vanessa will take him to the end, she will drop is little delusional butt in a heart beat, one thing for sure is that Liz wont win but she'll have a better jury speech that he will, because this dummy will go in there praising Vanessa, but Vanessa will mote than likely take dummy #2(Liz)

Chacha said...

I am not a Steve fan but he did state last night to Vanessa that he will not THROW the third round.
He doesn't want to take Vanessa to the final two. He was working on his I am evicting you Vanessa speech before he won the Second round of HOH.
I just can't believe there was less than a 4 minute difference between Steve/Liz in the second round.

I honestly don't want any of these three to win the game this year but this is what we are left with.
With that being said, ATEOTD Vanessa has played the game. I don't like her style and wish she would be honest with us the fans of the show. I hear people saying she is playing Derricks game. She really isn't because she is less truthful in the DR than he ever was.

I just can't believe after all these years I am still in the pool. I don't think I have made it with my pick to Jury....

Petals,

There you go again Steve traded-in his "fan card" for a "Van card".
She has controlled his game from day 1, becoming his surrogate Mommie(Dearest), thats just too darn funny, my daughter called me and I answered the phone laughing and she said "Mom it's just too early in the morning for you to be having so much fun, but it makes me so happy to hear you laugh again" my daughter moved to Philadelphia and I miss her terribly, I'm a widow, and as you get older it's hard to accept change, but I love the life she's living because she's so happy.

Sharon N said...

I think Vanessa will clean fanboy's clock in Part 3, and he sealed his fate when he got all exited and was bragging that winning Part 2 will have to look good to the Jury. This was his Stupid Card.

oops... NOW he thinks Vanessa is onto him? Ya think?

If he should happen to win Part 3 (by some miracle), I actually believe his 'plan' is is take Liz to F2. The problem (for him) is getting past Vanessa's wheedling.

Although Fanboy has a lot of cards, to date, he has always pulled the Blank Card when it comes to Vanessa.

Chacha said...

To me this final three is almost as bad as season 15. Spencer, Ginamarie and Andy.
I am not so sad that this season is ending. I don't like them adding two weeks to the season.
I understand a need to fill the gap before fall season shows start but they could cut it to just before Thursday night football starts.

Stormy said...

I do not understand why everyone hate Vanassa so much. She has done only what all the good players have done on this show. She has controlled the whole house, got others to do what was best for HER game and won her share of comps. She is not my favorite player either but if she does not win this show it will be because of the bitterness of the other players. If this happens they need to change this show to who is the most popular and not who played the best game. Bitterness is an ugly thing in the jury and shows the character of those who have been voted out.

Anonymous said...

I feel people should be able to vote the way they want, maybe it is not bitterness they may believe it was not the best game played. As far as Vanessa she had a lot of weak minded people so this gave an illusion she was playing a good game. If everybody is throwing competition how do you know who was good. It was crazy people throwing competition like they were. I would.like to see Vanessa play with real game player to see how she do. I would like to see people stand up to her. She was a bully. I don't know why these people put up with that. John stood up to her but she knew she had the weak minds to back her that's why he didn't get no where with standing up to her, same thing with Becky.

monty924 said...

As much as I loved James and Johnny Mac, they didn't play a great game. I'm still voting James for AFP though because he's my favorite player this season. He made the feeds a fun time for me at least. The problem with the Goblins' game was they all threw comps thinking another one of them would win it. After Jason left, they had one win by Jackie and she was dethroned, one by James and one by Becky. Every other HOH was controlled by the Scamper Squad and three of them are there in the end. I think Vanessa deserves the win outright with Steve a close second.

Sharon N said...

James for me too Monty! Daily voting has stopped again for me. So glad I got in all I could last night and this morning... just in case the issues with daily voting crop up again.

JMac won a bunch of comps and was entertaining in DRs, but not in the house.
James also won a bunch of comps, but he was entertaining and made it fun in the house (especially when Meg became his sidekick).

Everyone else was just.... there. Basically, filling the gaps. Some were annoying, one was annoying AND gag-worthy, and some were occasionally mildly-entertaining.



~~Silk said...

Regarding jury voting -- there's a thing on the playground, or at least there used to be, called "fairness". It matters whether you play fair or not. If you don't play fair, nobody wants to play with you, and they certainly don't want to reward you. So what some may see as bitterness in the vote, may actually be a judgement against what is seen as unfair play. Vanessa went in for a lot of emotional manipulation. Some may see that as unfair, no matter what they call it.

Sharon N said...

Silk, you make a valid point, and if she's in F2, the chickens might come home to roost next week. Vanessa has been promising F2 with both Liz and Steve. Even now, she solidifies her F2 deals with each, but then tells them not to discuss their agreement.

If she doesn't win Part 3, you know she's going to press that F2 agreement on Steve.
If she does win Part 3, the Jury might feel she's pushed herself into that "unfair" area... by having to back-track on the promise they will each take seriously.

Everybody lies in this game and, IMO, Vanessa's fake promises are equal to the comp promise made by James to Shelli. The only difference... James has been easier for most of us to relate to and like.


Chacha said...

My main problem with Vanessa is she wasn't honest in Diary Room sessions. If she would at least let us know her true intentions and feelings maybe I would have liked her better.
Lying in the Diary room just irritates me. Let us know your plans and what you are doing.
Johnny Mac was at least honest in Diary Room even though he didn't really do anything in the house besides sleep and win a comp when needed.

VCrissey said...

Vanes deserves to win, she played the best game, she would talk to each one and show them valid points on what was best for the game, she out did Austin, I hope she takes Liz, that a girl wins this time.the laws of average all girls, it has to be a girl to win

VCrissey said...

Vanessa played to win, the purpose of the game to win . They all lied and manipulated, she just did a better job. The VB prize belongs to best player. Liz has been cat and mouse hanging on to Vanessa and played and planted that seed, a girl needs to win, it always the guys, showed her loyalty by taking Van on her night out win. I think she is taking liz.

Petals said...

Anon 11:12, you are such a sweetheart. I'm glad you're here, blogging with us, having some fun & laughs this summer.
Silk ~ Fairness, is it politically correct to be fair anymore? LOL.

Regarding the Van Card : Vanimal did "play" the game, but the way she did it just SEEMED so underhanded to me. Even Julie C mentioned her fake crying & lack of ownership (a conscience?) in her behavior & gaming.
I can't put my finger on it -her game was dirty somehow. It's like she was alone from day 1, because she never seemed to give a true damn about any other HG; even when she began to socialize, there was a lack of good spirit & camaraderie (even within her alliances).
I believe that many of the HGs will remain friends, but I think Vanimal won't, she approached this like a job, and the other HGs were her subordinates.
In my opinion, her game was joyless, and her sinister manipulations made the house less enjoyable this summer - for the other HGs and for us! She missed out on what could have been an great experience.
She may win the $500k, but she is still a loser in my book.

Not only does Vanessa deserve to win,but she's one of the best players of all time.

4 HOH's 3POV's,survived BOTB twice,and managed to avoid eviction when Becky backdoored her. All that's left now is for her to win the last comp of the season vs Steve.

Vanessa is as well the first female since Danielle Murphree of Big Brother 14 to win multiple HoHs and PoVs. She is also the first female since Britney Haynes to win 3 PoVs.

A true BB All-Star

Petals said...

Uncartie, all of those stats might matter, and would indeed make her an All Star, except for one important thing: she's despicable.

Sharon N said...

Sorry uncartie, but I have to agree with all of Petals' arguments re Vanessa.
Although I appreciate that she's played the best game... at what cost? There has been NO honesty where we most look for it... in DR.

I must say that Vanessa is no different than James. He lied... and didn't keep his word to Shelli. She lied... and made promises she had no intention of keeping either. And IF she wins Part 3, she will get the chance to prove how much her F2 'promises' have always meant... to Liz, Steve, and the Jury.

Yeah, she's the best player this year and deserves to win. She's been able to fool everyone, but it doesn't change the fact that she's not been likable... at all. It pains me to say that Austin just might get his jury wish... because of her own actions.


ceemurph said...

Also, she only won all those comps and evicted all those HGs be the rest of them were terrible.
She's not a great BB player, she's just better than the rest of the yahoos this season.

ceemurph said...

Anonymous said...

The difference between Vanessa and James is that Vanessa went back on private deals, while James went back on a very public deal. After that, not a word he said mattered.

Even though this year's contestants were, as a group, weak, if Rachel is considered one of the "greats", then Vanessa, if she wins, should be among the very best ever.

David said...

I think I have finally figured out who Vanessa reminds me of as far as game play, Boston Rob. They may be from different reality shows but played the same underhanded, dirty game. I would think if Vanessa comes back for an all-star season the other players would be able to see right though her, but Boston Rob proved being an underhanded dirty snake in the grass is a winning combination even when everyone knows beforehand that is exactly what you are.

I really don't want any of the 3 left to win, can we get a reset button to re-do this season? I don't know who I want to win and really don't care at this point. Vanessa deserves the win by game play alone, definitely not by personality. If she doesn't own up to it during the questioning and throws out her fake tears she could lose if she makes it to the final 2.

monty924 said...

I think going back on deals is part of the game. The best make deals with everyone and usually scumbag most of them. Vanessa has been annoying this season with her 'emotional' blackmail, but it worked and she's at the end because of it. BB is not a game for the faint hearted and I honestly like the entire season. At this point, we all have things that we don't like or hate about all of them left in there but they are the final three. I enjoyed the season. Can't wait to see if one of them, Steve or Vanessa, makes a $450K mistake. :))

Petals said...

Right, Monty. Slipping in & out if deals is part of the game. If a person does it well, and remains charismatic enough for the jury (and viewers) to still root for them, then THAT is what makes a Dr Will, Dan, Rob, Derrick, etc.

I don't know who Boston Bob is , but I would be willing to bet every dime I have that If Vanesa was to ever come back and play with some real All Stars, like Dr Wii, Janelle, Evil Dick, Dan, Derrick just to name a few, she wouldn't be able to pull this crap she did to these empty, weak-minded,clueless people. She would never win playing the way that she has, she has been exposed to her game play,which most of the past winners probably wouldn't see her as great all the tears, promise of giving them money ,emotional blackmail, they wouldn't fall for that, she happen to come in house with a bunch of incompetent people, It's being said that her being a poker player and being able to read people made it possible for her to read these people, heck Ray Charles could have read them. All that being said, she deserves to win not praised.

David said...

Anon, 7:56, Boston rob played on Survivor much the same way as Vanessa has played BB, but without the crying. He came back and played another season of survivor and the idiots let him stay and he won even though they knew who he was and what his game was before he went on.

Everyone knows they are lying but for some stupid reason they think they are lying to everyone else but them. Vanessa could come back and play the same way again and it has been shown to work so she could do it all over again.

chrob61 said...

Unfortunately the only one in this house that saw thru Vanessa was Becky- and look where she ended up. So hat's off to Vanessa, she played a good game, just an unlikable one.

That operative word you used "idiots" can exclude some people. lol, the past players on BB that have been not been classified as idiots, fools, stupid and some other adjectives, probably would not let Vanessa play them again (as Boston Bob did) and allow her to just walk way with the money, so that says something to me about the people he played against, but it's all good.We're all here having fun and just giving our opinions which I'm sure Vanessa could care less. One thing for sure she will forever be remembered.

We can only hope part three is a sitting on your veggies endurance comp. (It won't be) That will show us who wants it most.
