It’ll be a crazy day on the live feeds as the POV ceremony is today and Vanessa will have to put up a replacement nominee, and she is refusing to go with the house this week, which means her choice today will bring some drama along with it. Luckily for Vanessa, she does have enough people working with her to protect her, but this is Big Brother, and anything can change in no time at all!
8:45 AM BBT: Wake up call.
10:35 AM BBT: Meg wins a cruise on Rob Gronkowski’s party ship.
11:10 AM BBT: John tells Jason that he’s going to vote for Jeff because Jeff has had his back this entire time. Jason tells him to just let people know and they won’t care. John agrees and says that he’ll talk to James first and let him know why he’s voting to keep Jeff and that he doesn’t have anything against him.
John tells Clay that Becky is someone who can keep her mouth shut and that they can trust, so she’d be a good replacement for Jeff in their alliance. Clay agrees and says that adding her would work out perfectly because him and Shelli have been talking to Becky a lot recently.
11:40 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Shelli that it comes down to gamesmanship and ethics, and Jeff did something that was unethical and crossed the line, so he has to be the one she puts up as the replacement nominee. Shelli tells Vanessa that Jeff is still telling people that she is the one who approached him about an alliance. Vanessa tells her that Jeff told her that she wasn’t included in the alliance he approached her about because Shelli didn’t want to include her. Vanessa says she’s heard that Jeff will expose an alliance that nobody saw coming if he goes up. Shelli says it’ll be the alliance between her, Clay, Jeff, John, and Jackie. Shelli adds that the alliance wasn’t strong, that it hardly was more than a middle school clique.
12:05 PM BBT: POV Ceremony begins.
1:10 PM BBT: John tells Vanessa that Jeff hasn’t done anything to him personally, so he’s going to give him a sympathy vote. Vanessa tells John that keeping someone like Jeff in the house is both dangerous for his game and hers, so he should really take that into consideration before voting for Jeff to stay. He tells her that he knows Jeff is likely going, but he just wouldn’t feel right if he did give Jeff his vote.
1:20 PM BBT: Jeff tells Jackie, Jason, and Meg that being backdoored in a bitch move and the one thing he didn’t want to happen to him. He says that the thing that Vanessa blew him up over didn’t even include her, so it doesn’t make sense why she got so mad about it. Jackie tells him not to worry because Vanessa’s game is completely destroyed now. Jeff tells them that a few people owe him favors, so hopefully they’ll vote for him to stay.
1:25 PM BBT: Clay and Jason both agree that they’ll be able to trust James more than they’ll be able to trust Jeff. Meg joins their conversation and tells them that she doesn’t know what to do. Jason tells her that getting Jeff out this week will be better for their game in the long run. Meg says that they need to think about keeping Jeff in the house as a possible meat shield and because anyone who sitting next to James on Thursday will likely go home. Jason tells Meg that if they get Jeff out, they’ll be able to smooth things over with a lot of people. Meg tells him that if the house is wanting Jeff out, she’ll vote Jeff out.
Jason and Clay tell Meg that James will admit to lies if they catch him in one, while Jeff will always treat his lies as if they were actually true. They add that the only people voting to keep Jeff will be Jackie and John, so the house will be voting him out.
1:35 PM BBT: Austin tells Jeff that he thinks that someone is manipulating Vanessa but that he doesn’t think that it’s Audrey. Jeff agrees and says that he thinks it might be Jason. Jeff says that Jason is the one person who might be playing a super shady game.
Jeff tells Austin that this is his true test, that if he makes it through this, he’s going to be in the house for a while. Jeff tells him that he isn’t going to be surprised if he does leave, that Austin, Vanessa, and Liz become the next targets ahead of Audrey for everyone.
1:40 PM BBT: Becky tells Shelli and Clay that she’s voting with the group, but that she is game to get Jeff out.
1:45 PM BBT: Shelli tells Clay that she no longer has sympathy for Jeff after he told Vanessa that she (Shelli) created the alliance that actually he created.
1:50 PM BBT: Jackie tells Shelli and Clay that she is going to vote to keep her teammate Jeff, but that she knows that he’s likely going to go home and her vote isn’t going to do any good.
2:45 PM BBT: Audrey tells Shelli that she doesn’t feel like she can trust Vanessa. She tells her that Vanessa claims to be trying to fix her (Audrey) image, but Audrey doesn’t see her doing that. Audrey tells Shelli that her gut tells her that Vanessa has a deal with Jason and Meg on the side. Audrey adds that she doesn’t think that Vanessa is actively go against them, but that they just need to keep an eye out.
Audrey tells Shelli that Austin is becoming the new Jeff. Shelli says that he plants seeds in people’s head without realizing what he’s doing, but Jeff planted seeds while doing it as a strategy. Audrey changes the subject and tells Shelli that she thinks that she is the only person that can really work with Shelli and Clay. Audrey tells her that she is totally fine going to the final 3 with them because she thinks that she can beat the two of them in the final HOH.
3:30 PM BBT: Austin tells Audrey and Vanessa about Jeff trying to bully him into voting for him. He says that since Jeff knows that throwing Audrey under the bus to him is pointless now, he’s trying to plant the seed in his head that Jason is shady and can’t be trusted. Audrey and Austin both think that Jeff is going to use Day’s strategy of telling people that he has x amount of votes, then saying that they’ll be the swing vote. Vanessa asks Audrey if she thinks Jeff will be sent out. Audrey tells her that she’d be shocked if he wasn’t.
Audrey tells Vanessa that Meg’s social game is really good, that she is the Christine of this season, centering herself in an alliance with a bunch of guys. Vanessa asks Audrey what she thinks about Austin. Audrey tells her that she doesn’t think that Austin would ever do anything to jeopardize her (Vanessa) or her game.
3:35 PM BBT: Jason tells Shelli that Jeff could sell water to the ocean, that’s how good he is at being persuasive. Jason tells Shelli that James will come clean about lies, while Jeff will take them to the grave. Jason tells her that James is simply more trustworthy than Jeff is.
4:05 PM BBT: Jason tells Meg that if they vote to keep Meg, it’ll make their bond with Clay and Shelli stronger. He says that they can play along like they’re in a four person group with them so that they don’t put the two of them up if they happen to win HOH. Jason tells Meg that it’s almost to their benefit that someone is striking at Jeff before they were the ones who would have to pull the trigger on him.
Meg tells Jason that Shelli makes her nervous. Jason tells her that she makes him nervous too, but that Clay makes him more nervous than Shelli does. Both Jason and Meg agree that Clay and Shelli cannot be left together for too long or else they’ll make it to the end.
4:20 PM BBT: Clay and Audrey get into a small argument. Clay tells Audrey that she’s always in the HOH room so it’s making people suspicious. Audrey tells Clay that he’s the one who is always drawing the attention to them. Audrey tells Clay that it makes her and Steve uncomfortable when he’s going around saying that they’re rats scurrying around the house. Clay tells her that he’s just joking.
Shelli tells Audrey that 75% of them time when Audrey brings them information, she says she overheard it and it’s hard to believe that you’d overhear so many important conversations. Audrey tells her that everything she has overheard is checking out and the people who are lying and wronging her are getting caught.
Audrey tells Clay that he’s always in the conversations with Jeff’s group when they’re talking bad about her and their alliance. Clay tells her that he cannot just tell him to stop or defend her without exposing that they’re working together.
4:50 PM BBT: Audrey tells Clay and Shelli that she is the only advocate of the two of them together and actually wants to go to the end with them. She tells them that other people don’t want to go to the end with a couple because it makes them nervous. Clay tells Audrey that he is still having trouble trusting her, but he wants to be able to. Clay tells her that Shelli is one of her biggest advocates and that he wants to be able to be one too.
5:30 PM BBT: Jason tells Clay that the twins have fallen into the background and that they’re just going to have to let the other twin join the game. Jason says that once Audrey leaves, it doesn’t even matter if the twins come in because they’ll have nobody to work with.
5:50 PM BBT: Liz enters the house.
5:55 PM BBT: Shelli tells Audrey that she just had a revelation that the first person to tell her to not trust Audrey was Jeff. Vanessa and Austin both say that they believe Jeff was the first person to warn them about her too. Vanessa tells Shelli that he wanted to be in with her and Clay but say Audrey as the direct opposition to that.
6:05 PM BBT: Jeff tells Jackie that Clay and Shelli aren’t going to work with her, that they’re going to start going after people like her in the coming weeks. Jeff tells her that Clay is Shelli’s little pawn bitch, that she’s the mommy and he’s the kid. Jeff adds that he doesn’t believe they’re a real showmance, he thinks that Shelli got with Clay for different reasons, because the age difference just doesn’t make sense.
6:20 PM BBT: Jeff tells James and Jackie that Audrey pulled the “I’m transgender, you can’t get me out” card with Vanessa and he thinks that’s disgusting. Jeff tells her that Vanessa wouldn’t even listen to a word he’d try to tell her, that she would just over exaggerate everything he’d say to the point of where it felt staged. Jeff tells them that he thinks this has been a plan for a while now, that it wasn’t any sort of last minute decision. Jackie tells them that she’s fine with Vanessa going next if it isn’t going to be Audrey. James agrees with her.
Jeff says that Audrey pulling the “transgender card’ is the opposite of equality. James agrees and says that’s like him going up to Vanessa and pulling the race card. Jeff tells them that his game was working flawlessly until the psychopath Vanessa put him up.
Jeff tells Jackie that if Clay and Shelli don’t vote for him, she should consider working with John, Becky, Meg and possibly Jason and James. Jeff tells her that she should play Austin, use the fact that he really likes her to her advantage. Jeff tells her that if stays, he’s going to completely restructure the way he plays his game. Jeff tells her that he’s going to get Becky, John, Jackie, Austin, Liz, Clay, Shelli, and Meg to vote for him.
6:25 PM BBT: Austin updates Liz about everything that happened while Julia was in the house. Liz tells Austin that she’ll be in the house until Friday, then she’ll switch with Julia.
7:15 PM BBT: Jason tells James that he’s not convinced that Jackie and Jeff aren’t another twist. Jason tells him that there have been countless other pairs that have been on The Amazing Race, so he questions why they’d choose Jeff and Jackie out of everyone.
7:35 PM BBT: Jeff tells Austin that it makes him sick to his stomach to watch Audrey walk around the house like everything is fine after all the things she’s done. Jeff tells Austin that he doesn’t even want to campaign against James because all campaigning does is make you look like an asshole, not help you sway votes.
Jeff tells Austin that people aren’t listening to Vanessa on this one, that they’re all pissed off at her. Austin tells him that he had no sway in any of her decisions because she refused to collaborate with him on anything. Jeff questions why Vanessa was willing to create 1 ally at the expense of creating 7 enemies. Austin tells him that she doesn’t see it as 7 enemies. Jeff tells him that Vanessa will learn quickly because people are already talking about targeting her.
9:05 PM BBT: Liz tells Austin and Vanessa that if she wins HOH next week, she’s going to go after James. Austin and Vanessa discuss making a deal with James’ about not targeting them next week for Austin’s vote.
9:25 PM BBT: Jeff tells Clay that he isn’t going to campaign against James when James isn’t campaigning against him. He tells Clay that he’s just going to let the house make their own choice. Clay tells Jeff that the twins switched today because one had a cold sore near her mouth while the Liz in the house now doesn’t have one.
Jeff tells Clay that he thanks God for their alliance because they make him confident that they have his back during Thursday’s vote. Jeff tells Clay that if he makes it out of this week alive, he’s going to stick with their alliance and just cut everyone else out. Clay tells Jeff that he needs to tell people that he just got caught up, got reckless, and will be loyal to his alliance and his alliance only.
Clay tells Jeff that he hasn’t completely lost his trust, but he is still holding out a little. Clay tells him that James will admit to a lie when he’s caught, but Jeff will just try any way possible to get out of the situation without owning up to the lie. Jeff tells Clay that James threw him and Shelli under the bus to people about the two of them being a power couple. Jeff tells Clay that he’d take him to the final 2 over Jackie, so that should say a lot about his trust in Clay. Jeff tells Clay that if he isn’t going to vote for him, he might want to come to their alliance and tell them why, because if Clay doesn’t vote to keep him, they’re going to start questioning him.
10:20 PM BBT: Jason tells Meg, James, and Jackie that the twins have revealed the truth about themselves to their alliance and now that alliance is using that to their advantage.
10:20 PM BBT (hammock): Jeff tells her if she remembers when he said that she might need to do him a favor, he says that the time has come to ask for it. Liz tells him that they’ll just have to talk in a more private setting about that later.
10:25 PM BBT: Jeff tell’s Jason, Meg, James, and Jackie that it is 100% confirmed that Liz is a twin after his conversation that he just had with her.
10:55 PM BBT: Booze Delivery
11:20 PM BBT: “Dare or Dare” drinking game begins. They have to complete the dare to get a drink.
12:20 AM BBT: Austin tells Liz that he thinks they should blindside Jeff on Thursday because he wants to see his reaction. Austin questions her if they should bring Becky into their alliance without telling Vanessa and tell Becky her secret. Austin tells her that they need their own side alliances apart from just Vanessa and Clay/Shelli.
Austin tells Liz that Audrey doesn’t know it, but their alliance with Clay, Shelli, and Audrey is only so that they can keep Audrey as a meat shield if it looks like they’re about to be targeted that week. Austin tells her that they need to think of a way to get Clay and Shelli into the limelight like they did to Jeff so that if it looks like they’re going to get targeted, they could flip it onto the two of them. Austin tells Liz that they should make a 5 person alliance with him, her, Julia, Becky, and John.
1:20 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Steve that Clay and Shelli have overextended themselves and that they might be thinking about putting him up as a pawn again if they are to win HOH. Vanessa tells him that Clay and Shelli can’t have a relationship with everyone, so they’re going to need someone that they can put up as a pawn.
Steve asks Vanessa who she thinks he should put up if he were to win HOH. Vanessa tells him that maybe he should just go after floaters like Meg. Steve tells her that Meg isn’t a floater, that she’s in one of the main alliances. Steve tells her that he’s very nervous about Clay and Shelli. Vanessa tells him that if he wants to go after them, it’d be a big move. Steve says he’s not sure of what to do yet.
Steve tells Vanessa that both of the twins have been flirting with him, Liz more than Julia, but that he cannot have a showmance with Liz because it’ll put too big of a target on his back.
1:35 AM BBT: Jeff tells John that it’s smarter for his game to vote to keep him than it would be to vote to keep James. Jeff adds that he is the one that saved John last week and the only one who has brought him information. John tells him that is why he’s going to vote for him to stay.
1:55 AM BBT: James tells John that if he stays, he won’t have to worry about him targeting him or putting him on the block. John tells him that he feels the same about him.
2:00 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Audrey that Becky and John are closer to James’ side, so they can’t let that side of the house in power again. Audrey tells Vanessa that Clay and Shelli’s showmance is basically a meat shield for them because she believes that people will target the power couple before they target the one person with no influence over anyone.
Audrey tells Vanessa that she doesn’t understand John’s unyielding loyalty to Jeff because they’re nothing alike. Audrey says that she thinks that Jeff and John have a “bros before hoes” alliance. Audrey adds that John is attracted to Becky, but she thinks that he’s only going to be loyal to a guy.
Audrey and Vanessa agree that they could do very well if they work together. Vanessa says that there has never been a female ChillTown, and that she believes that the two of them have the potential to be just that. Vanessa tells Audrey that their biggest threat to the two of them is Jason.
