Big Brother 17: Live Feeds Into Monday - September 14

Walking the Backyard of Broken Dreams

Well, this will be the last update until after the feeds blockage ending after tomorrow night's show. While the feeds shut down at noon here, it's 9am there and, unless BB wakes them up, they'll be asleep still when they go off. Here's the latest from inside that Big Brother House of Indecisive Incentivizing Indecisions:
  • Obviously, the feeds are shutting down so that I can head into the city (NYC) to photostomp the Feast of San Genaro, sleep in tomorrow and celebrate my birthday without worrying about blogging BB live feeds!
  • I know it must be all about me, not about them taping the eviction for tomorrow.
  • Heh.
  • Austin pumped Johnny Mac for the latest news and what Steve might have said to him.
  • While JM was basically honest with Austin, telling him that he told Steve he needs to campaign and such, he didn't let on that there was any chance in heck that Steve would stay.
  • Steve did try to campaign to Liz. 
  • That didn't go over well.
  • But the HUGE NEWS is that Vanessa called Johnny Mac in for a talk and told him she wants to make a big move ... and get Austin out.
  • She wants Johnny to vote to keep Steve, knowing Liz will vote to keep Austin. She will then break the tie and vote out Austin.
  • Of course, this is Vanessa.
  • It's subject to change.
  • Of course, this is Johnny Mac.
  • It's subject to weirdness.
  • We will see.
  • No matter what, I won't miss seeing Austin literally shoveling scrambled eggs into his mouth. He cooks up a half-dozen or so at a time, a few times a day and inhales them.
  • No manners whatsoever.
  • Whether he goes tomorrow or next week, he'll be off my monitor and TV screen forever more.
  • Make sure you stop by tomorrow night 8pm ET for the show blog party!

Shoveling down mass quantities of eggs

As long as I don't go up!

I need to win HoH. I need to win HoH.

Thinking of end game.

Hope you have a truly wonderful birthday celebration, Jackie! Enjoy your day off! 🎉🎈🎂🎈🎉

Have a wonderful day in the city. Happy Birthday a day early.

Happy, happy birthday tomorrow Jackie!

So excited for some actual suspense - would be awesome if JMac does vote for Steve to stay and Van actually sends Austin home. I would certainly be surprised. Maybe not as much as Austin....

Enjoy your day off! Thank you for this great blog/site.

Vanessa left law for poker, and has left poker for DJ-ing. She hasn't played big stakes poker in a few years. Or so I read somewhere....

Happy Birthday, Jackie. I'm glad CBS is going to allow you to enjoy it.

~~Silk said...

I have a very poor memory, mainly because I don't really care, but as far as I can remember, Vanessa hasn't yet made any "big moves". If the jury thinks Austin is running the game, it's because they think Austin controlled who got "his" three (or four, or five) votes for eviction, therefore HE put them all out. What they don't know is that Vanessa was running Austin. And Vanessa doesn't know that the jury doesn't know that. A trial lawyer gets to watch the faces of the jury. She hasn't been able to do that.

If anyone other than JM had come back from jury, Vanessa would have pumped the ex-jury member and would know what they were thinking ("Austin is running the house, Austin has social game, we don't like Vanessa, she's scary and not trustworthy"), but JM never had an opportunity to sample the mood of the jury. This naive jury is likely to vote on social game and "big moves", so if she hasn't had one, she needs one, NOW.

Happy Birthday Jackie. I hope you have a nice day. I'd ask how old you are but!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that would be rude.

Thank you for this site. I come here every day and do enjoy all your pictures and comments. At times it's better than the BB house. Again, have a nice Birthday.

I have been saying this for years. It will be a game changer. The person who wins veto removes a person and does renominates. People are afraid to use it or there allies would go up

Happy Birthday and thanks for always keeping us up to date.

I will be willing to bet that Vanessa votes Steve out, because she a liar, again wanting JMac to do her dirty work. I don't believe that she wants to go to the end with Steve or Jmac.

Sharon N said...

Thanks Jackie... for this mental mouthful!! LOL

Silk--In a carefully constructed, powerful speech to the jury, Vanessa should run down all of the evictions and show how she controlled them, and also controlled Austin's role in them. In the process, she could speak directly to each juror, and remind them of any controlling interaction she had with them. Her control over Julia in the recent veto would make an excellent example.

If I were her, I'd want to take JM or Steve to F2. Their credentials wouldn't hold a candle to hers. Liz does have a couple of HOHs, but was never really her own player. Vanessa's vs. Liz's play in the last HOH would help make a strong case for Vanessa. But, if I were Vanessa, I'd see Austin as the most dangerous potential opponent in F2, and would take this opportunity to send him out.

Happy Birthday Jackie!!! I hope it's a great day and nice trip for you! I am hoping to head to NYC soon so I can tour the Freedom Tower!

Witt said...

If Vanessa actually STAYS with the oust Austin plan, I'll be shocked. Pleased, but shocked. He is part of a pair and must be split up.

Anon 4:47....you are correct. Vanessa can very carefully and very easily click off on her fingers what she has done to show that she is deserving of the win.

Happy birthday Jackie!! Wishing you a year full of health and happiness!! Thank you for all you do!

Hope Vanessa does vote out Austin. Took her long enough to break up the couple. Should have done that weeks ago. Not a smart move by letting them get this far. Sounds like Steve have some good arguments also by the way he is talking to himself. Should be good to hear both of them. I think the jury will by surprised to find out Steve is not that little nieve little boy he has been playing all summer. I think it all just an act of his so the others would not take him serious. Should be a good final three. I like Johnny Mac but all I can imagine him saying in the laughing/loud voice is vote for me because I need to money to pay off loans . HAHAHAHA Thats all folks.

Vanessa better be careful what she says this group of people might not take her gloating about what she has done, and how she made a fool of them. the only one for sure that would love to say how she controlled all of them is Steve, I can hear him telling all his friends about how he got to play with what he probably thinks is the best BB player of all times, true players might appreciate her play but these might hold a grudge if she tells them she had an alliance with everyone in the house, even though she deserve to win she better count those skittles carefully.

uncartie said...

Just finished watching last night's episode. That was the most disgusting exhibition of scripted product placement I've ever seen,cobbled together with that vile freak Fjg in front of it.

If Vanessa can get to the end I think she wins against anyone. She's an attorney that can make an excellent closing argument. As she herself as said "I'm good at campaigning...that's what I do".

Happy birthday Jackie

Cheryl in NC said...

Happy Early Birthday Jackie! Enjoy your day off in the city! But make sure you make it back for your party tomorrow night!!

As for the updates today...I hope Vanessa follows through and votes out Austin.. i am afraid she may keep him and use Jmacs vote betrayal as reason they should take her to fianl 3. I hope I am wrong because I would love to see Judas betrayed.......wouldn't that be fitting..hahahahahaha

Jean said...

Happy Birthday, Jackie! Enjoy the city

I'm hearing it was leaked who was evicted and Austin got the boot , I hope it's true !

Nickelpeed said...

Happy early birthday, Jackie. Hope it's a wonderful day.

I thought it was a live eviction? If not, I hope the leak is true.


I'd be surprised if Vanessa follows through on voting out Austin; unless she really wants an all female F2; or, she thinks she has a better chance up against the boys.

Someone made the observation that many people in the Jury think Austin is running the show, so the only way they can give credit to Vanessa is for her to make a huge move.

Happy Birthday! We just got back from San Gennaro......I'm covered in powdered sugar from zeppoli's!! Enjoy! Thanks for all the updates. Been reading you for YEARS!

Lili said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACKIE!

Hope you have a great day at the festival. Looking forward to seeing some photos of it, am guessing they will go up Sunday?

Take care,

Lili

Judy said...

Happy birthday, Jackie! Enjoy your day in the city!

I don't believe anything that Vanessa says. It's like spinning a roulette wheel - I'm not sure that even Vanessa knows where it will stop and who she'll evict until the last minute. I do hope it's Austin, though.

David said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JACKIE !!!!

Now that it is officially your birthday I can say that. =)

David said...

I would take a guess and say they filmed the BBAD that is on now this morning. The HG's were complaining about having to get up early, though they all promptly went back to bed, and they gave them play-doh and Jenga to play with though no one seems very interested in it being that all their eye's are closed.

monty924 said...

They did, David. They've done this since BBAD started on SHO2 but they didn't always cut the feeds for it. I can remember at least on Britney's season the feeds showing it in the morning and then seeing the same thing that night on BBAD. I'm dying to know if Vanessa and JMac went through with it and Austin is really gone. I hope so, lol. Also curious to find out when the feeds come back who's on the block and who won the F4 veto. They'll likely do that tomorrow so we will know as soon as the feeds come back who it is. Fingers crossed that Steve or JMac has the veto and can decide who stays and who goes on Wednesday.

David said...

I also hope that is the case Monty. The only way the veto gets messed up is if the HoH also wins the Veto. Then the HoH gets to decide which two to put on the block but the lone person not on the block gets to decide who goes home.

I think the person who wins Veto, if not already on the block, should take down the person they want to save leaving just one person on the block with nobody who can go up just to mess with production. I know it doesn't matter as that person holding the Veto, if not HoH, gets to decide who goes anyway, but got to have some fun.

Anonymouse said...

If she get JMAC to vite Austin out and then saves him with tiebreaker, she gets Steve out and makes JMAC everyone's target. And if JMAC wins veto or is HOH, he has to work with her anyway, as Liz and Austin aren't options. JMAC voting Austin out, but Vanessa helping him, still helps her make final 3.

Anonymous said...

Someone stated that Vanessa will win no matter who she takes to the end I think that's pretty presumptuous. She might not get to the end, the game is not over and she can't play for the HOH and there's no solid guarantee that she'll win POV if she gets put on the block. If you believe JMac in the DR he's saying that he'll tell her what she wants to hear, but I don't but too much stock in anything he says.

uncartie said...

Anon 10:47AM,You may be referring to my comment. What I said was...
"_If_ Vanessa can get to the end I think she wins against anyone."

I stand by that statement

Yes, it's all about you! LOL. Happy Birthday, Jackie! (A day you share with my late Mother-in-law). I don't post often, but visit every summer since you started this wonderful blog! My oldest daughter now comes here (she's 19). Your recaps make tolerating these hamsters so much better! Thank you for all you do.

Chacha said...

I can't believe there haven't been any spoilers anywhere about the eviction yesterday.
I have checked all my usual places: jokersupdates, hamsterwatch, etc...
last year they had a feeds slip and showed the houseguests getting ready for the pov. Nothing so far today. Its frustrating.

I also hope and expect Vanessa to vote out Austin with a tie break. I think she will tell Liz the name came out by accident..

Happy Birthday Jackie! I appreciate your blog postings- it makes the show much more enjoyable to watch- and I agree with your opinions of the HGs.

Every year, there's talk about someone being the Golden Child picked by BB to win. And every year, the theory has gone down the tubes. Off the top of my head, there were rabid accusations about Elissa and Frankie being Golden. Didn't happen.

If Vanessa wins, it will be because she's just that good. JMac totally has her number. Steve knows the way Vanessa works too, but he's not as sharp as JMac... figuring out how to turn it around and work Vanessa in return.

Chacha said...

Sharon- I agree with what you are saying.
The problem with these hamsters is they didn't get Vanessa out when each had the chance.
She is good.
i don't like her delivery but she is playing the game. I think she overplays when she doesn't really need to.

monty924 said...

David if the veto winner takes one down they go up in their place. Final 4 is the only time that happens. Dani won veto, took ED off and she went on the block against Jameka but she knew her Dad wasn't going to evict her. :))

IAgirlsmom said...

O.M.Goodness! Also can't believe no leaks - that feels so crazy after usually having so much information. This will be a real surprise tonight. Of course, the one night all year I can't actually watch it. Ha.
Have fun tonight!

monty924 said...

There hasn't been any leaks, but I did see a tweet from the sidebar on the feeds from a tabloid. I know @@

It's purely RUMOR and not substantiated but it says, Austin's gone and JMac is the new HOH. Take it with a grain of salt, LOL.

Anonymous said...

monty, I am trying to remember that POV/eviction. if ED and Jameka were on the block and Dani was voting and could have kept ED, voting out Jameka, why did Dani use the POV to put herself on the block so ED would vote Jameka out? I can not remember this for the life of me and I'm trying to figure out why they would have bothered if it didn't really matter in that particular case.

Zach nominated Dick and Daniele at F4 and Dani won the veto. She could have taken herself off the block but was symbolically returning the favor. ED used the veto on her when they were on the block together earlier in the game. Then Dustin was the replacement and we all remember what happened, LOL. He was willing to sacrifice his game for her earlier in the game, when it wasn't guaranteed that he would stay, so she saved him with the veto, Jameka was the only replacement, and let him vote out Jameka. It was purely symbolic. :))

Anonymous said...

Rumoror not, Monty924 Hope is true.

monty924 said...

Same here, Anon 6:46 :))

S8 is probably my favorite season, even more so than S6. I'll never forget Zach telling ED and Dani that nobody had the stones to take them out but he did have the stones and they just sat there laughing. ED left the table saying, "Bring it On" :)))

Jackie said...

The main credible leak source for Hamsterwatch and ME got himself busted. Look up MissCleoBB and Michael Shapiro. Oy!

Susan in MA said...

Possible spoiler; According to Jokers:

By a vote of 2-1 Austin was evicted. Vanessa kept her promise to John to shake things up by breaking the tie. In the final four HoH, Johnny Mac won his fist HoH.
