Big Brother 17: Season Finale Blog Party

The Final Three bid adieu to us

Liz spelled it out, Sneaky Steve nudged it
Well, this is it. We're at the season finale, another summer of voyeurism finished. This morning, before the live feeds shut down, the final three said farewell. Liz was the most excited and happy. Steve said the fact he's there proves that if you really want to be on the show, you can do it. Vanessa was a bit more like Tommy Chong. She's not a morning person.

Before we get on with the show, we have a few bits o' bizness to attend to:
  • Both the Survivor and The Amazing Race blog pools are open for signing up. Please do not sign up on this BB17 season finale post! The sign up posts are at: Survivor Blog Pool and The Amazing Race Blog Pool.
  • As for this season's BB blog pool, the remaining contenders are:
Liz - Skyriverblue, jo Chapman, monty924
Steve - KelseyNY, Carrie, K
Vanessa - Chacha, Heather Reyes, T-Town Chick

As the show airs here on the East Coast, I'll be updating this post with the major events (and perhaps a few minor thoughts thrown in). Refresh the page to get the latest news. As always, the real party is in the comments section! Come join in on the fun!

We have to get through the season recap first. Oy. Finally, we should be getting to the first part of the final HOH ... please! Please? Finally! We're to the swinging and dunking apple hamsters. The winner of this round skips round two and vies in part three with the winner of two. Got that?

All three are still up when a taunting voice tells them to slide down from the disks and sit right atop the apples. Please note this voice was never on the comp in the live feeds! Steve is out first. Vanessa sats that she can hang on for longer to psych out Liz ... claims she has another ten hours in her. She mouths final two at her while Steve's back is turned. Liz drops. Vanessa wins Part One!

Liz thinks she HAS to beat Steve in the next part, so she isn't trusting any deal with Vanessa.

It's onto Part Two. It's crossword puzzle format. Steve is thrilled because he likes puzzles. It's BB-related and they have to climb up to put their answers in. It's timed and Steve went first.

The time:
Steve - 28:22
Liz - 31:11

Steve wins Part Two and will go against Vanessa in Part Three!

Dr. Will's Roundtable with the jury! Yes! Johnny Mac joins them. Heh. Austin is shocked that Liz is working with Vanessa against Johnny Mac. Will brings up that he's being hypocritical. Heh. Jackie and Shelli talk about how much Vanessa is playing the game. James thinks she's been playing very well.  Austin and Becky seem bitter.

Shelli thinks Steve did brilliantly social. Johnny Mac calls him a rat. Julia thinks he's cowardly. Jackie thinks highly of Liz's game. James thinks Liz should win because she's in the house and they're all out there. Johnny Mac thinks other people (Vanessa) ran Liz's game.

Final Part of the Final HoH Comp! Vaness and Steve are on Scales of Just Us, have to prove how well they know the jury. A statement with two possible endings. Eight questions.
1. Steve 1, Vanessa 0
2. Both wrong
3. Both right
4. Both right
5. Both wrong
6. Both right
7. Vanessa right. A tie.
8. STEVE

STEVE WINS THE FINAL HOH!

To the living room. Steve EVICTS VANESSA! He went on about her being such a strong player and the move he had to make. Liz is in shock.

Vanessa admits to Julie that she wasn't going to take Steve to the final two had she won HoH.

Julie introduces the jury for the interrogation. They're happy to see Vanessa join them. They've agreed to three questions.

Johnny Mac - You relied on me or Vanessa for all you decisions. Tell me why I'm wrong. They can't hear him in the studio. We can.  He defends making the friendships, split the twin twist, work with Jackie, etc.

Becky - Liz, Austin created and influenced your strategy. What was your strategy? Liz says she aligned with Austin and Vanessa, target on back, did own campaigning.

James - Steve, sitting next to a player while you floated. Steve denies floating. Steve is defending himself quite well.

Liz - Biggest game move as individual? Aligning with strong competitors. (Um, individual?)

Jackie - Biggest function was a vote. Dang, he's being so well-spoken. The kid is prepared.

Austin - Why do you deserve to win the money over Steve? The twin disadvantage, want the money.

Well, Steve certainly after his initial nervousness, answered very well. Liz, not so much.

Final Plea time.
Liz - Not a big gamer, grew to love the game, Julia, incredible summer, three wins.
Steve - Prepared speech, played the game while Liz was in hotel, four HoH reigns, made moves making his own decisions, Liz followed others.

Voting time.
Shelli, loves both. Voting with heart.
Jackie - Congrats, proud of both, one who dreamed of it their entire life.
Becky - One person I'm proud to vote for.
Meg - Heart is torn, give credit to big moves.
James - Both amazing, let Jesus take the wheel.
Julia - My vote is obvious, but I love you both
Austin - Liz, love you. Steve, proud of you, Heart wants what it wants.
Johnny Mac - Choose between worst alliance ever member, can't think of insult for Liz.
Vanessa - No offense Steve, my vote goes for the person who I think best represents what this season stood for.

Non-jury hamsters time on stage. Da'Vonne disses Austin. Heh. Vanessa admits to being a millionaire poker player. Yawn. Jason gives Vanessa kudos for maneuvering through the game but disses her for not owning her game. Audrey is having time of her life, warm responses, gets teary.

The vote reveal --
Vanessa - Liz
Johnny Mac - Steve
Austin - Liz
Julia - Liz
James - Steve
Meg - Steve
Becky - Steve
Jackie - Steve

STEVE WINS BB17! Shelli also voted Steve.

Favorite Houseguest  -- Johnny Mac, James and Jason.

JAMES wins favorite houreguest.

Steve says he'll spend the money wisely and didn't expect to win.

Cheryl in NC said...

Hey Jon

Nickelpeed said...

Dejavu! Hi everyone!!!! Heeeeeerrrrreeee we go!!!

Thank you Jackie, this is greatly appreciated.

monty924 said...

Bring on the BITTER jury roundtable

Petals said...

~*~*~*~*~*~* SPLASH ~*~*~*~*~*~*

Hello everyone! I hope we have our special Anon friend here with us tonight, as well as any Survivor peeps who decided to hang & party.

Thanks Uncartie - yes, there are 6 bottles of bubbly chilling, you want to pour up some glasses?

Plenty of awesome food, everyone feel free to dig in!

Anonymouse said...

The vegetable peeler

JonMD1267 said...

Hey Cheryl, Nicke, and Becky

JonMD1267 said...

Hi Petals!!

Marybeth said...

Just think after tonight, no more Austin and Liz that is reason to celebrate!

monty924 said...

LOL, the Clay/Meg BR scene. I wonder what Shelli will think when she sees that?

Nickelpeed said...

Hi Everyone!!

Mouse, the in crew probably thinks it's them. They probably do not think JMac or
James are even on the radar.

Anonymouse said...

I'll drink to that!

Petals said...

I am sooooo worried that production & Vanilla Ice have made a deal for her to win Part 3.

Love that Will noticed how petty & bitter this cast is.

Brenda said...

Ready for my fave summer fix to end!

JonMD1267 said...

Please let Austin be sans shoes lol

Anonymouse said...

If they listened to applause they'd have a clue

JonMD1267 said...

BUTTTTT FFFFIIIRRRSSSSTTTTT :)

Becky said...

So, who will win? I know she played everyone, but I hope it is NOT Vanessa. I think I expressed my opimion in a previous thread.

monty924 said...

Petals, BB didn't rig it for Vanessa, lol

monty924 said...

This one did go long for recent BBs at least. They hung in there for almost four hours.

Becky said...

Petals, pass me a glass of bubble just to end the worst game ever! A special toast to Jackie for hanging in there.

Ed in Ohio said...

From Jeff Probst to Julie Chenbot....it's a long night!

Nickelpeed said...

Mouse, I think the "I'm glad you're out" sounded just like "We love you!" LOL

Cheryl in NC said...

stupid stupid liz

Nickelpeed said...

I do not get what they see in her to believe her????

Nickelpeed said...

Dr. Will.....you either loved him or hated him.

Cheryl in NC said...

yea dr will in the house!

monty924 said...

Will's Erin should really wear pants when she's sitting in the front row of the BB finale audience.

Petals said...

Was that Cody? I didn't see Zach attack.

JonMD1267 said...

That did look like Cody Petals

IAgirlsmom said...

Either Vanessa is a magician or Liz and Steve are total blank slates. Wow.

Petals said...

*passing Becky some bubbly*

Ed in Ohio said...

She's got legs..............ZZ top

uncartie said...

DrWills wife looks like a hooker

Sharon N said...

Hi everyone...
Since I live in the wrong time-zone, I'm still in the midst of Survivor.
But I love reading along and partying with y'all anyway. :)

Nickelpeed said...

IAgirlsmom, I think they are totally blank slates.

Petals said...

I think Steve has strong enough Mommy issues that Vanimal was able to use them to cloud his judgement. And Liz is yeah - an idiot.
And don't forget - Vanimal has been promising all sorts of Vegas hook-ups, cars and cash to Liz & her sister. Liz is just stupid enough to believe that she'll stick to those promises.

monty924 said...

^5 Ed :)))

JonMD1267 said...

NOOOOOOOOOO TO SUPERFAN lol

IAgirlsmom said...

Why bother fixing your roots if you're just going to wear a hat?

Cheryl in NC said...

Hi Sharon

why oh why is she wearing the stupid beanie

monty924 said...

A million dollar one, Ed ;-)

Nickelpeed said...

Wow, I see what you all mean about Dr. Will's girlfriend. I wish I had legs like that!!!

That is Cody and Derrik

Petals said...

Sharon, my friend! Have some champagne while you finish Survivor. We have 30 minutes until the shickles hit the fan, hehe

Nickelpeed said...

Steve should do well in this. Who knows tho.

Sharon N said...

Dr Will's wife looks like a hooker?
oh dear, I can hardly wait to see! LOL

Petals said...

Hi Jon! Do you have a drink? Stella, Bud Light on tap or Champagne.

monty924 said...

Cool challenge

Nickelpeed said...

Wait a minute... we already know he did well. Duh???? on me!

Sharon N said...

Thanks for the bubbly Petals! :)

JonMD1267 said...

Oh my gossssshhhhhhh lol BUTTER lol

monty924 said...

Sorry, my 9:47 comment was meant for uncartie, not Ed. Dr. Will's Erin is a millionaire herself.

Petals said...

I think Erin (Mrs Will) has a cute body, but she has over-Botoxed her face. She is nearly unrecognizable.

Petals said...

I think Erin (Mrs Will) has a cute body, but she has over-Botoxed her face. She is nearly unrecognizable.

JonMD1267 said...

Yes dear Petals I have some soda :)

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, what does Erin do?

Petals said...

GirlsMom - IKR? She's a hood-rat, that's why!

Nickelpeed said...

Does anyone know what the final HOH challenge is?

Ed in Ohio said...

Monty thanks, not sure what you meant? Thought maybe she had million dollar legs!

JonMD1267 said...

Even in the jury Austin could not step up his game lol

monty924 said...

Because she's NOT you Austin

JonMD1267 said...

SHOES lol

Nickelpeed said...

Bitter, bitter. He would have done the same thing.

Ed in Ohio said...

Here we go with the editing again!!

monty924 said...

Vanessa's got this if she makes F2

Petals said...

LMAO - that stupid Judas hat! "Judas" was such a non-entity, why even bother to continue to push that as a character?
And Aushole arguing with Will? And his pants? I think he accidentally grabbed James', lol.
Get over it, dude - you lost.

monty924 said...

Penny she won another reality show where she took the money over the love/guy. I can't remember the name of it.

JonMD1267 said...

Shellie is like Obi Wan now lol TELL IT JOHNNY MAC lol

monty924 said...

I love you Johnny Mac

Marybeth said...

Haha..JohnnyMac and she rode someone else to the end That was hillarious

Anonymouse said...

Whoever evict Vanessa wins.

Ed in Ohio said...

We saw what Liz did Austin. She lost both parts!!

Nickelpeed said...

Monty, Was it For Love or Money?

JonMD1267 said...

Dr. WIll could at least threw on some spray tan lol

Petals said...

For Love or Money was the name of the show.

Nickelpeed said...

I did not think they would respect Steve's game. However, by just listening to them, Steve cannot win.

monty924 said...

Yes, that was the show. I watched it and couldn't remember the name. DOH

IAgirlsmom said...

The only way Steve would have a chance is by evicting Vanessa and saying HE played HER to get there

JonMD1267 said...

From your lips Nickle lol

Anonymouse said...

Unless he evict Vanessa.

monty924 said...

Editing, Penny. I think Steve beats Liz if he's sitting next to her.

Anonymouse said...

If Vanessa takes Liz she's a fool

monty924 said...

Here we goooooooooooo... I'm hitting the keg again

Anonymouse said...

Why take a probably wins over a define win.

monty924 said...

This Stella is good

Petals said...

Agree Penny. They have all treated Steve like a 2nd-class citizen from day one. Even these past few days, Vanimal has treated him worse than she has all season - cutting him off when he talks, dismissing him from rooms, rolling her eyes, etc.

Gosh, I almost don't even want to watch this comp. Knowing how it's gonna end just turns my stomach.

monty924 said...

Vanessa and that gawd awful beanie @@

David said...

Goooo Steve, prove them wrong. Vanessa deserves the win but I don't want to see her win. lol

Can't wait to see this, I am still on Survivor here. Just got to immunity challenge.

Petals said...

Please Steve, don't throw this!

Nickelpeed said...

Who do you think Steve will take if he wins?
Who do you think Vanessa will take if she wins?

SueGee said...

Survivor will be coming on here just when this show is over!! See - I look at the end of the book first too!!

SueGee Scooping up cobbler before it is all gone

Anonymouse said...

Let's go Steve!

JonMD1267 said...

NNNOOOOOOO

monty924 said...

This is always a crap shoot

Becky said...

I know Dr. Will was a manipulative person too, but he was up front about it. Vanessa used tears, woe is me and, as I said before I think she honestly believes she did not tell the lies or do the things she did. I think she is a sociopath and a pathological liar. Sorry, but I just can't support giving her the win and let her think she did the right thing. That will only encourage her that she can hurt, lie and malign anyone if it serves her.

Petals said...

ACK, I can't watch!

Marybeth said...

Go Steve Go!!!

Petals said...

ditto Becky ^5

monty924 said...

I don't see Shelli sending any Christmas cards Meg's way, lol

Anonymouse said...

Hold on Steve

JonMD1267 said...

My gosh Vanessa what are you doing here lol

Marybeth said...

This is agony

IAgirlsmom said...

Omgosh. How many darned questions????!!! Steve for the win

Anonymouse said...

Uh oh

monty924 said...

Tied

JonMD1267 said...

SWEEEETTTTT

Anonymouse said...

Heard the crowd moan

Ed in Ohio said...

Chenbot sporting a ponytail...so she can show those earrings!

IAgirlsmom said...

Crap, crap, crap!

Anonymouse said...

Yes

monty924 said...

STEVVVVEEEEEE

JonMD1267 said...

NNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Anonymouse said...

Send.vanessa home

JonMD1267 said...

Wa wa waaaaa lol

Marybeth said...

Do the right thing Steve!!

Nickelpeed said...

Wooohooooooo. She probably threw it, though. She thinks Steve will take her. We'll see.

Becky said...

Way to go. Now grow a pair!

IAgirlsmom said...

Pick Liz, pick Liz, pick Liz. Plzzzzzzz

Becky said...

Way to go. Now grow a pair!

monty924 said...

I have a niece in Fort Worth Tx doing the happy dance right now, LOL

Sharon N said...

Jon is having an attack!! LMAO

Anonymouse said...

Although I will vomit if Liz wins

Marybeth said...

The crowd is definitely pro Steve Hope he heard it too

Cheryl in NC said...

send her home Steve....just do it ...only chance you have at the $500 k

JonMD1267 said...

Man, just the thought of "superfan" even getting 2nd :(

Anonymous said...

Yeah Steve!!!!!!!!! don't take VENESSA

JonMD1267 said...

I'm coming Elizabeth lol

Nickelpeed said...

Okay, Steve, take Liz.

But, I have a feeling that no matter what he does, he won't win. Most of the jury said bad things about him.

Either way, he needs to get rid of Vanessa.

Cheryl in NC said...

Lmao off Jon...it will be ok

Petals said...

OMG ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !! ! !


*POP* goes the champagne. Whew, omg.

Please do not take Vanilla Ice. Please don't pull some weird Oedipal loyalty thing.

Oh no - she is gonna use this commercial break to put the full-court press on him, pulling out all the stops. She'll threaten, she'll blackmail, she'll cry... Don't be surprised if we come back from commercial to find her holing a knife to CoCo's throat!

Please Steve, play smart. Please. For once this season, make the right move.

Jackie said...

Call the medics! I think JonMD has been stricken. He's quoting old sitcoms!

SueGee said...

LOL @ Jon

JonMD1267 said...

Man that is kind of messed up as hard as home girl played and she is going out the door 3rd

Sharon N said...

LMAO PETALS!!!!

monty924 said...

Take Liz Steve!!! :)))

Petals said...

Monty - we love Stella. It's our only beer now.

Nom Nom! The brats are delish and the cobbler is amazing! Thanks everyone!

JonMD1267 said...

LOL, I am so stuck in the past you all actually do know how I am by now lol

Nickelpeed said...

If Liz wins, I want her to dump Austin. Please Liz, dump Austin!

Anonymouse said...

Or anti Vanessa. Though it's hard to imagine they like Liz

monty924 said...

LOL @ Jackie

Such a great ending to the Final HOH, now do the smart thing STEEEEVVVVEEE

SueGee said...

We need like buttons in here

Petals said...

Marybeth, you're right. I heard that.

I think I'm not being biased or being a rag or whatever when I say - Van really has alienated nearly everyone, right?

Marybeth said...

Come on Steve!

JonMD1267 said...

Wouldn't that be funny if he took Vanessa lol

Anonymouse said...

Give it just like you rehearsed

monty924 said...

Vanessa looks stunned

Nickelpeed said...

Be smart, Steve.

Petals said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE that scared weasel look on her face. Love it.
Please Steve - say it... say her name..

SueGee said...

With that reference we do know how old you are Jon

Sharon N said...

Steve 'might' win if he took Vanessa with this bitter jury.
He might lose with Liz.
Take Liz. :D

Petals said...

shut up Steve - just evict her already

Petals said...

shut up Steve - just evict her already

Anonymouse said...

He grew a pair

Cheryl in NC said...

he did it

Anonymouse said...

And she handled it graciously

JonMD1267 said...

Liz, pull your stuff together girl lol

SueGee said...

And guess who goes home in third place with 0 prize money??

Sharon N said...

YAY!!!! Not that I want Steve or Liz to win either, but I really didn't want Liz with the BIG win.

monty924 said...

THANK YOU STEVE! For doing the right thing for your game and not any someone else.

Petals said...

Oh MY GOD!!!!!!
How is she holding herself together? How, with all her hysteria and flip-outs, how is Vanimal even standing? LMAO

This is the best, redemption for the whole season.
Now she trashes him.
What a nasty slag. She will trash him in jury, you know she will. But who cares? He BEAT YOU, you slag!

Nickelpeed said...

Smart guy. At least she took it with stride.

Shut up Steve! Why are you apologizing. THAT is why he should not win.

And, there it goes. She is going to rationalize. But, at least she was honest. LOL

IAgirlsmom said...

Liz could still win though. I hope his jury appeal is darned good.

Sharon N said...

oops... Vanessa with the BIG $$$.
But Liz didn't do anything... her wins were mostly from people throwing the comps.

Becky said...

I am so glad. Ding, dong, the witch is dead! Even if Steve loses he had the you- know-what to do what no one else did.

SueGee said...

She will really be a mess at the after show if he wins it all.

Anonymouse said...

She doesn't really get to talk to them

Petals said...

Go cry some real tears, for once!

If we thought the jury was bitter 10 minutes ago, can you imagine the flavor after she
walks in?

The votes for Liz: Vanimal, Aushole, Julia and who else?

uncartie said...

Vanessa went out with class! That lastcomp was terrible

JonMD1267 said...

I am torn, I just don't like "Superfan", but Liz I don't think she can lay it out properly why she should win this, I do think she has more played the game then other final two's here of late and did win some comps as well as survive twins and a showmance,

Becky said...

Julia, Austin (for greedy purposes), Shelli, J-M and Shelli will vote for Liz to win.

Anonymouse said...

And that's why I would vote for him. Liz was Austin and Vanessa s puppet

Cheryl in NC said...

I thinking 6-3 vote..steve with the win

Ed in Ohio said...

Strange game you can lose....but still win!

SueGee said...

Survive a showmance is a reason to win???

Sharon N said...

No clue who Vanessa will vote for...
Although she led Steve around, he did win 1 more comp than Vanessa.
Liz. @@

I don't like Vanessa, but I also don't see her being a bitter voter.

monty924 said...

This is awesome. All three had a chance and it's coming down to the two who most predicted woudn't win it. I LOVE BB

JonMD1267 said...

She should get at least a 250k for being in the same bed as Austin lol

Anonymous said...

I don't care if he doesn't win the big money, old moneybags wont either.

IAgirlsmom said...

Does Vanessa actually go to jury?

Anonymouse said...

It's going to be close I think. Becky. James Meg and Jackie for Steve. Jmac, Julia and Austin for Liz. Shellie and Vanessa decide it.

Petals said...

Is anyone else just OVER THE MOON with shock & happiness? The happiness isn't because I love Steve, I am just loving that the "boy" is getting his revenge on that harpy. Even if he doesn't win the big prize, he BEAT HER!

How DARE she act so indignant? She was prepared to kick his ass to next Tuesday, WTH?

Oh well, I just finished half a bottle of Champs over here, LOL

JonMD1267 said...

Austin didn't get much response lol

monty924 said...

Can't wait to see JMac's face

Cheryl in NC said...

hardly no cheers for Austin...lol

Petals said...

hardly any applause for the Hole. LMAO

Petals said...

^5 Cheryl

Ed in Ohio said...

Well Aushole's happy!!

JonMD1267 said...

Bitter party of Austin lol
