It’s sure to be another crazy day in the Big Brother house as the POV competition will be played today, along with Clay and Vanessa’s constant campaigning to Shelli to think about backdooring Audrey. Today will completely determine if that plan is even possible this week or not, as we’ll see who will hold the Power of Veto.
10:10 AM BBT: Houseguests begin waking up.
10:15 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Shelli that she wants to win the POV and use it on someone in hopes she’d put up Audrey. Vanessa says that she’ll call Audrey out if she has to. Vanessa adds that her feelings are hurt after hearing what Audrey is saying about her, even after how nice she was to her. Vanessa says that maybe she’s clinically paranoid. Clay tells her that she’s America’s Player and will do anything to stay. Vanessa asks Clay who he thinks it would be better for Audrey to go up against to insure she goes home. Clay tells her that Johnny Mac would be the best option. Vanessa tells him that she thinks Jason would be the better option. Clay tells her that she has more leverage to work with in her campaigning if they use Jason. Vanessa tells him that they’d have the votes to get her out because they’d have her, Austin, Liz, James, Meg, and the tiebreaker votes guaranteed.
Vanessa asks Clay if he’s having the same concerns about Austin that Shelli is. Clay says that he is, that Austin is just going to look out for himself. Clay tells her that he doesn’t think that Clay will be disloyal to them, but if someone targeted him and sent him home, he wouldn’t be upset about it. Vanessa tells him that it’ll be good to keep Austin around for the next few weeks because he is a package deal with Liz and Julia.
11:20 AM BBT: Shelli begins crying to Clay, telling him that she wants to trust Audrey and just doesn’t understand why Audrey won’t trust them. Clay tells her that Audrey is a threat to their game and that she has voiced that directly to people who have told them about it. Clay tells her that she’s risking her game for someone that is not helping her game. Shelli tells him that is a good point. Clay tells Shelli that if she doesn’t want to be the bad guy and send Audrey home, he’ll just do everything he can to win next week and do it himself. Shelli brings up that if a twist keeps Audrey here, she could target him just to spite her. Clay tells her if she doesn’t want to do it, nobody is going to think differently of her for waiting one more week.
Shelli tells Clay that she’d need concrete evidence to put Audrey up, such as things James has told them and things that Vanessa has denied. Vanessa joins their conversation and asks Shelli if she’s ready to make this move. Shelli says she’s not, but she’s considering. Vanessa tells her that she’ll have her support if she backdoors Audrey and that she will help campaign against her. Vanessa tells her regardless of who is up next to Audrey, she’ll still 100% be the one to go.
1:55 PM BBT: Shelli, Jason, John, James, Meg, and Vanessa are picked for POV.
2:05 PM BBT: Meg tells Shelli that everyone will have her back if she wants backdoor Audrey. Vanessa tells her that it doesn’t matter who wins the POV because they’ll all use it on Jason and then she could put up Audrey. Shelli tells Meg that it’s about loyalty, and she doesn’t want to go against Audrey after giving her word, but says that Audrey has given them so many reasons and excuses to get her out. Shelli tells them that she’s not going to try and win POV so that one of them wins it and she is forced to pick a replacement nominee. Meg and James both say that taking Jason off the block would be better to insure that Audrey goes home because there is no way that people would vote John out.
Meg tells Shelli that there isn’t anyone in the house that wouldn’t be on board with getting Audrey out. Clay asks who would vote to keep Audrey. Vanessa tells him that it would be a unanimous vote to evict her. Shelli asks if Audrey stays because of a twist, will they go after her the following week to keep Audrey from coming after Shelli. James says if he wins HOH next week, he’ll just backdoor her again. Meg asks if Audrey has any idea that she might be backdoored. Clay tells her that Audrey thinks she’s getting backdoored every week. Clay tells them that they’ll have a full day tomorrow to think over what is the best plan of action.
2:25 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Austin that she can almost guarantee that Audrey is going to be backdoored. Austin tells her that this will change everything if that does happen.
2:30 PM BBT: James tells Audrey that if he wins the POV, he’s going to use it on Jason since Jason picked him for Houesguest’s Choice. Audrey asks James if they’ve talking about replacement nominees yet. James tells her that they haven’t because it’s still too early for that. Audrey asks him if she needs to be worried or not. James tells her that she doesn’t. Audrey says that she isn’t worried because if there is a replacement nominee, she thinks it’ll be Steve.
James tells Audrey that he doesn’t think that Shelli is going to try to win the POV. Audrey disagrees and tells them that she’d be getting more blood on her hands by not winning it because she’d have to put up a replacement nominee.
2:35 PM BBT: Jackie asks Clay and Shelli if they were the two extra votes for Jeff. Shelli tells her that they weren’t the people who voted for him. Jackie tells Shelli that Becky came up to her personally to tell her that she voted out Jeff. Jackie tells them that she thinks people are coming to tell her they voted out Jeff to cover themselves from speculation that they actually voted James out. Jackie asks if she’s a target for being associated with Jeff. Shelli tells her that she isn’t, and that she won’t ever put Jackie up.
3:50 PM BBT: James tells John that he’s going to be safe regardless if he wins or not because there is currently a master plan in motion.
4:30 PM BBT: Meg tells Jason that he’s going to be good. Jason asks who will be put up next to him if the POV is used. Meg tells him that Audrey will, but that he cannot let anyone else know that.
4:40 PM BBT: Clay tells Shelli and Vanessa that if they take Jason down, they need to spin it so that it seems like they’re doing this solely to save him, that way they can gain his trust. Vanessa tells Shelli that it’s best that she (Vanessa) wins the POV because it’ll give Shelli the option of having her use it or keep the nominations the same. Clay tells Shelli that if she wants to send Audrey home, she needs to be on the block next to John.
4:45 PM BBT: POV Competition begins
7:05 PM BBT: Vanessa wins the POV
7:30 PM BBT: Jason tells Becky that Vanessa is closer to John than she is him, so he says that she’ll likely use it on John. Jason tells her that he’s hearing that Audrey might go up, but he’s scared to be next to her on Thursday because of how good she is at talking her way out of situations. Becky tells him that she doesn’t see Shelli putting Audrey up. Jason agrees. Jason tells her that if he’s on the block with Audrey, it’s not going to be a unanimous vote like Vanessa said it would.
8:45 PM BBT: Shelli chooses Jackie, Audrey, John, and Becky to be have-nots.
8:55 PM BBT: Audrey tells Shelli that she’ll be able to spy on Jackie, John, and Becky since they’ll all be sleeping in the same room. Audrey tells her that she’s not trying to cast doubt, but says she saw Vanessa and Steve talking in private together, that Steve is probably worried about being backdoored. Audrey tells Shelli that if she wins HOH next week, she’s willing to get blood on her hands. Shelli tells her that if it’ll help her relax for a week, than it sounds like something she’d like to see.
9:00 PM BBT: Wackstreet Boys first performance
9:30 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Jason that she’s sure they can work out a deal with him and his allies. Jason tells her that his only ally is Meg, the person he is second closest to is James, and that’s only through Meg.
9:35 PM BBT: Vanessa tells John that she’s going to talk to Shelli first, then she’ll come find him to talk. She tells him that she just has to make sure that Shelli won’t be pissed at her about using it. John tells Vanessa that he doesn’t expect her to use the POV on him.
10:00 PM BBT: Austin tells Vanessa that Audrey has been upstairs with Shelli for an hour so he fears that Audrey is going to talk Shelli out of nominating her. Vanessa tells him that she’s likely going to use the POV regardless of what Shelli wants because it’s a good game move for her. Austin tells her that they should make a deal with Jason before he’s taken off. Vanessa tells him that she’s not just going to make a deal with him, she’s going to make a huge deal with multiple people. Austin tells Vanessa that for the next 24 hours, they just can’t let Audrey be alone with Shelli. Vanessa tells him that even if Audrey does talk her out of it, someone like Steve would be backdoored and she’s fine with that.
10:05 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Jason that she just has to talk with Shelli first to make sure that she’s not going to get upset if she uses the POV, then she can confirm with him that she’ll use it on him. Jason tells her that the POV needs to be used, even if she doesn’t take him off the block because otherwise he’s going home. Jason tells her that he doesn’t stand a chance against John if they’re on the block together on Thursday.
10:20 PM BBT: James tells Jason that there is nothing to worry about because there is currently a plan in motion to take him off the block to backdoor Audrey. James tells him that they’re going to find out about alliances they don’t know about when Audrey is put on the block.
10:20 PM BBT (hoh): Vanessa tells Clay and Shelli that she’s going to make a big deal with Jason and his allies so that if any of them are to win HOH, they’ll all be safe. Vanessa tells Shelli that if she would see her using the POV as betrayal, she won’t use it. Vanessa tells Audrey that even if she didn’t want to backdoor Audrey this week, they could use the POV to backdoor someone like Steve or Becky.
Vanessa tells Shelli and Clay that she overheard Jackie talking with James and her saying that she’s going to be out for blood with the person who put her up, which makes Jackie the only person she’s worried about. Vanessa tells them that she’ll make a deal with Jackie so that they don’t put each other up if either of them win HOH. Vanessa asks if they think John will be upset with her for not using the POV on him. Shelli says that they can just sit him down and explain the plan and let him know that they have the votes to keep him and send Audrey out.
Vanessa tells them that the house will be simpler and less crazy once they get Audrey out, so that’s what they need to do. Vanessa says that they shouldn’t tell Audrey about going up because she’d go crazy. Clay says Audrey shouldn’t know she’s going up until she’s in the nomination chair.
10:40 PM BBT: Austin joins Shelli, Clay, and Vanessa’s conversation. Shelli tells Austin that backdooring Audrey isn’t exactly what she wants to do, but people are talking her into doing it. Vanessa asks Shelli if she has her blessing to use the POV. Shelli tells her that she does. Shelli tells her that a sufficient enough reason for using the POV is that neither Jason or John are big targets, so sending one of them home would be a waste. Vanessa tells Shelli that there is a risk in not backdooring Audrey because the other side of the house knows they were thinking about doing it. Clay tells her that it doesn’t matter, that they’d understand why she didn’t. Shelli asks if she should blindside Audrey or prep her before the POV ceremony. Austin, Clay, and Vanessa tell her that Audrey needs to be blindsided. Shelli says that they just have to make sure that it’s known that the house is doing this, that it’s not just her who is backdooring Audrey by herself. Clay and Vanessa both say that they’re fine with taking the blame.
11:10 PM BBT: Austin tells Liz that Vanessa is going to make a deal with Jason that will protect the two of them, use the POV on him, then Shelli is going to put Audrey up to ultimately backdoor her on Thursday. Austin tells her that their biggest threats for next week will be Jackie and Becky.
Vanessa joins their conversation and tells them that she’s going to try and include the two of them in every deal she makes.
11:20 PM BBT: Clay tells Shelli that she needs to make the decision that she wants to make. Clay tells her that if she has any doubts or will regret it later, she shouldn’t backdoor Audrey because he can just do it next week. Clay reminds her that if she looks at it from a game standpoint, there is no reason why she shouldn’t backdoor Audrey. Clay tells her that even if Audrey did try to expose them and their alliances, nobody would believe her. Clay tells her that getting Audrey out is something that the whole house wants, so she needs to take advantage of this and make every single deal that she possibly can to insure safety for the coming weeks.
11:35 PM BBT: Shelli tells Jason that Vanessa can use the POV on either him or John, but that John would be safer on the block than he is. Shelli tells him that her and Clay want to make a deal with him that if they win HOH again, they’ll never put Jason up. Jason agrees. Shelli asks Jason who he thinks she should nominate at the POV ceremony. Jason tells her that Audrey would be his first choice and that Austin would be his second choice. Jason tells her that if she puts up Audrey, it’s going to be a unanimous vote to get her out. Shelli asks him how dangerous he thinks her making this move is. Jason tells her that it’s the safest week to do it out of all the opportunities they’ve had.
Jason tells Clay and Shelli that based on his DR sessions, he doesn’t think that Audrey is getting a good edit. He tells them that if he knows the Big Brother community like he thinks he does, America cannot stand Audrey and will be happy to see her go. Shelli tells Jason that if she puts Audrey up, the house has to come together and just agree not to listen to anything Audrey says that’s related to game. Jason tells her that he thinks the house will come together for that. Jason begins talking about the twins, and says that getting them out isn’t his priority, but going after them is something he might do if an original plan didn’t go through.
