Big Brother 17: Second HoH Comp (not live), Nominations Show Blog Party - Sept. 6
Good evening! Ready for a blog party? While many of us already know the results of the PoV comp, tonight's episode will focus on the second HoH comp and nominations not shown (not done at the time) on Thursday. It's kind of like experiencing jet lag!
I'll be updating this entry with the major happenings as it airs here on the East Coast. Refresh the page to get the latest. As always, the real party is in the comments area. I hope to see you there!
Recap, recap. Vanessa is relieved that her only person who she wasn't working with (James) went out in the double eviction. Steve feels the same. Johnny Mac says it's time for a bloodbath. Austin doesn't want to win the upcoming HoH and get "blood on his hands." Vanessa would prefer Steve or Johnny Mac win to get one of the twins out. She promises Austin she "can make it happen." Then she runs to JM to tell him. Then to Steve.
Time to HoH comp! It's a baseball themed game. Liz thinks if Austin, Vanessa or Steve win, she and Julia are safe. (Ha.) Shown trading cards at a rapid speed, make puzzles of the missing player. In each round, last one to solve is eliminated.
Austin tells us he's not throwing the comp -- too risky. Johnny Mac knows he's in trouble if Austwins win.
1st round - Steve, Julia, John, Austin ... Vanessa out.
2nd round - John, Julia, Steve ... Austin out.
3rd round - Steve, John ... Julia out.
4th round - STEVE WINS HOH! (And Julia/Liz think they're safe. Ha.) Johnny Mac tells us he's letting Steve have it because next time will be physical, not Steve's specialty. Vanessa is happy.
While the twins are happy, Austin tells us he knows Steve is a numbers guy and will probably realize the Austwins need to be split up.
Vanessa hints to the twins that Steve is close with John and might put them up. Austin talks to Steve who tells him that he knows he's at the bottom of the Scamper Squad. Austin is willing to give up Julia and promises he and Liz won't target Steve. Steve doesn't trust him, but acts like he does.
Austin tells Liz that Steve may put them (twins) up. Liz wants Julia to talk to Steve. Julia is closer to Steve and never has liked Austin much anyway.
Who wants to see my HoH room? Yawn. He got a teddy bear. The twins suck up and Johnny Mac mocks them to us from the Diary Room.
Vanessa tells Steve that putting the twins up together isn't a good idea if the veto is won. The weakest (Julia) must remain off the block. She tells him that Austin and Liz should be the nominees. Yes, ma'am. Whatever you say. (Although that is solid thinking as long as Vanessa isn't his target.)
Johnny Mac thinks it's best they target Austin. Steve thinks he should warn Austin. Silly naive Steve. He tells Austin he doesn't think he can put the twins up together. He pussyfoots around telling Austin the target and tells him that he doesn't know.
Nominations today. Steve is visibly down. He nominates Austin, then Liz. Making a move best for his game, sorry. Liz runs off crying.
