It’s going to be another deal-making day in the Big Brother house as the houseguests prepare to start the new week tomorrow. With Audrey isolating herself, they don’t have to worry about campaigning against her, which means they can focus on next week. The most interesting thing from today’s Live Feeds will likely be Clay and Shelli potentially jumping ship with Austin, Liz, and Vanessa in order to align with the other side of the house. However it’s possible that Shelli brings Vanessa along with them and just leaves Austin and Liz behind.
9:50 AM BBT: Wake up call.
10:25 AM BBT: Clay asks Shelli what she thinks about the alliance he suggested last night between the two of them, Jason, and Meg. Shelli says yes, and says they should add John and Jackie to that potential alliance. Clay tells her that they have to be careful because they’re good with too many people. Shelli says that they can have a final 4 with the two, Meg, and Jason, then they can just open a line of communication between them two, Jackie, and John.
Shelli tells Clay that Meg, Jason, James, and Becky all want to get Liz out next. Clay tells her that Austin, Liz, and Steve will all be targeted before they will. Shelli tells him that Austin is the new target, they should just go with it because at least it isn’t them. Shelli tells him that Vanessa suggested they put up someone from their own alliance so that they don’t draw suspicion, so they should put up Austin since that’s what other people in the house want.
11:55 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Clay and Shelli that she caught Jason and Jackie talking late last night, so now they know for a fact that they two of them are working together. Vanessa says it’s obvious that they’re working together since she didn’t take the deal that she offered her. Vanessa tells Clay and Shelli that Jason, James, Meg, are equivalent to her, Shelli, Clay, and Austin.
12:05 PM BBT: Shelli tells Clay that their idea of working with Jason and Meg doesn’t really work anymore now that Vanessa is so against them. Clay and Shelli agree that they’ll still try and talk to Jason and Meg about working together, but that they’re going to try and have those two lead the conversation. Shelli tells him that they’re going to have to do whatever they can to protect Vanessa if they don’t include her in the four person alliance. Clay tells her that if they bring up Vanessa, Austin, Steve, and Liz, they’ll have to try and deflect the target from Vanessa and put the target on Austin, Steve, and Liz.
Shelli asks Clay who he would nomiante. Clay tells her that he’d put up Becky and Austin since Vanessa said they should put up someone from their alliance. Clay tells her that he doesn’t want to put up Steve, but that’s still an option. Shelli tells Clay that if he nominates Jackie, then their potential deal with John and Jackie wouldn’t work. Clay tells her than he’d just put up Becky and Steve. Clay tells her that the ideal situation for Austin to agree to be nominated to deflect from their alliance and he goes up with Becky.
12:15 PM BBT: Clay asks Jason who he’d put up if he wins HOH. Jason tells him that he’d want to put up Steve and Austin, with Austin being the target. Jason tells them that Jackie said they should backdoor Austin, but he (Jason) doesn’t feel like it would be worth burning bridges by putting up a pawn, so they should just put him up outright and have Liz as a backup target if him and Steve win the Battle of the Block.
12:30 PM BBT: Austin tells Liz that once she leaves and Julia reenters, he’s going to start “Operation Jason”, where he’ll start working on Jason, bringing him to their side and slowly letting him into their inner circle and confirming to him that she’s a twin. Austin tells her that Jason really like him, so hopefully he can appeal to Jason’s reasoning and that he’ll agree to work with them.
Austin tells Liz that the second stage of his plan is to vote for Audrey so that he has the insurance plan of framing Steve as America’s Player if Steve doesn’t win the next Head of Household to keep the two of them safe.
3:25 PM BBT: Vanessa brings up Jackie not accepting her deal again. She tells Shelli that Jackie, John, Becky, and Steve are the social floaters who are floating back and forth depending on who is in power, so that’s who they should get out next. Shelli asks Vanessa if she has any deals with Steve. Vanessa says she has a “We’re good” agreement with Steve, but that doesn’t mean she can’t nominate him. Shelli tells her that Steve isn’t trying to win competitions, that he only wins the ones where he knows he has to.
4:45 PM BBT: Audrey comes out of the have-not room to have her first discussion in the last couple days. Audrey asks Jackie what the general consensus in the house is. Jackie tells her that everyone is worried, that they all love her, and want to make sure that she’s happy before she leaves. Jackie tells her that there was already a plan to backdoor her before she started exposing things to her and James, she only just sealed the deal by doing so. Audrey tells her that they just wanted to set her up like they did Jeff. Audrey thanks Jackie for being honest with her and gives her a hug before going back into the have-not room for a short break before getting Shelli.
4:50 PM BBT: Jackie tells Clay about her conversation with Audrey. Jackie tells them that Audrey brought up the alliance that she exposed to her just the other day. Clay is dumbfounded and says that is how desperate she is. Clay asks how someone could play with so little integrity.
5:00 PM BBT: Jackie and Clay fill Shelli in on the conversation with Audrey.
5:05 PM BBT: Shelli and Audrey meet in the lounge to have a final talk. Audrey tells her that before she goes, she just wants to clear up a few things. Audrey tells her that it boggles her mind that this all happened because she thought Shelli was her friend. Shelli tells her that she is her friend. Audrey says that it doesn’t feel that way after what’s happened. Audrey tells her that she’s found out that there was an agenda in place to get her out before the fight happened. Shelli tells her that it isn’t true. Shelli tells her that if she thinks that for a minute Shelli was planning to backdoor her before the fight, she’ll see it on TV when she goes home and watches it back. Shelli tells Audrey that she’s (Shelli) been an emotional wreck after having to put her up.
Audrey asks Shelli if she heard it from Vanessa that she (Audrey) want to split her and Clay up. Vanessa tells her that she doesn’t know if she can say or not because Audrey might exploit anything she tells her. Shelli tells her that before the upstairs fight happened, she never heard anything negative about Audrey come out of Vanessa’s mouth. Audrey asks her why Vanessa needed to find a reason to justify using the POV to put up a replacement nominee. Shelli tells her that she didn’t need to find a reason, because she (Audrey) gave them one.
Shelli tells Audrey that after seeing how quick Audrey was to turn on her, she doesn’t know how much she can actually tell her. Audrey tells her that it was clear that she was planning on backdooring her, so that’s why she went to talk with Jackie and James. Shelli tells Audrey that she was trying to give her an opportunity to talk to her to see if she’d tell Vanessa not to use the POV, but instead Audrey went to expose their alliance.
Shelli tells Audrey that she knows she has a final 2 with John because John told her. Audrey tells her that she doesn’t have a final 2 deal with him, that they only had an understanding. Shelli tells her that she’s also heard that Audrey wanted to go against her and Clay. Audrey tells her that it’s convenient that she’s heard that and that it’s going to cost her $500,000 for trusting the wrong person (Vanessa). Shelli tells Audrey that she learned about things she (Audrey) was doing before the BOB was played, long before she exposed them. Audrey tells her that her and Clay are way too naive when it comes to trusting Vanessa. Audrey tells her that she swears on her life that Shelli has been the only person she has been close to in the game and that anything else that she’s hearing is a lie.
Audrey tells Shelli that she would’ve never betrayed her because she was the one person she was loyal to. Shelli tells Audrey that when she goes home, she’s going to see that she was pushed into nominating her at the POV meeting. Shelli tells Audrey that she loves her, cares for her, is going to miss her, and is extremely hurt that she was forced into being the one to do this to her (Audrey).
6:15 PM BBT: Shelli goes upstairs to tell Clay about her conversation with Audrey. Shelli tells him that Audrey made it seem like this is the biggest betrayal ever. Clay tells her that nobody inside or outside the house is going to see it as Shelli betraying Audrey. Shelli tells him that if it is being spun as the ultimate betray, she wants to leave. Shelli tells him that she insinuated that everyone was rooting for the three of them, now Shelli’s turning on her.
6:30 PM BBT: Julia reenters the house.
6:30 PM BBT (kitchen): Jason tells everyone in the kitchen that the twins just switched and that “Cruella” is back.
6:35 PM BBT: James goes to talk to Audrey in the have-not room. Audrey asks him why did he turn on her, that she told him everything she did to help his game. James asks her how she thinks that was helping him. Audrey tells him because she informed him about an alliance he didn’t know of or was apart of. James tells her that he was told that if she was really an a alliance with all those people she said, it wouldn’t make sense for them to flip on her. Audrey starts laughing.
6:40 PM BBT: Shelli, Clay, Becky, James, and Jackie all join in the HOH to rehash Shelli & Audrey’s conversation, along with Jackie & Audrey’s conversation. James tells her that Audrey just confronted him in the have-not room asking him why he told Clay and Shelli about what she told him.
7:00 PM BBT: Austin and Julia begin their check-in. Julia tells him that James knows that they switched because he was doing nothing but staring at her face when she first walked in the house. Austin tells Julia about his plan to bring Jason into the fold. Austin says he will tell Jason that it hasn’t been confirmed, but he’s starting to believe it too. Austin fills Julia in on his plan to vote to keep Audrey so that he can blame the hinky vote on Steve and say that he’s America’s Player. Julia tells him that she doesn’t think anyone else would vote to evict John, so he should do it.
7:25 PM BBT: Steve asks Austin if he can tell people that he (Austin) is his backdoor target when he really wouldn’t be. Austin tells him that he can.
7:30 PM BBT: Steve tells Austin that the angle her and Liz need to play is them coming in is less threatening than a houseguests returning. Steve tells her that she should consider telling everyone that she’s a twin since everyone knows and that way people don’t think they’re being shady. Liz says it’s a good idea, so she’ll talk to Liz about it before making a final decision.
Steve tells Julia about Liz and Austin being in a showmance. Julia says that isn’t good because Austin has a girlfriend. Steve tells her about how Austin and Liz were spooning and cuddling last night. Julia says Liz never told her about that, and that she is pretty sure that Liz only likes Austin as a friend. Julia says she really doesn’t want to sleep in the same bed as Austin. Steve says it will either raise questions or it might not since everyone knows that they’re two different people.
9:20 PM BBT: Audrey performs a musical in the have-not room.
9:40 PM BBT: Audrey joins the houseguests in the living room for a faux BB Takeover announcement. She put on a wig and makeup and told everyone that she was Liz’s twin.
10:45 PM BBT: Jason asks Austin if he knows the name of the other twin. He tells him that her name is Julia. Austin tells him that he really has a feelings for Liz so it’s hard only being able to see her every few days. Jason tells him that they’ll likely both get to come in because most agree that it would be better for the twins to join the game instead of someone who got evicted coming back. Austin tells him that he doesn’t mind having to get out Julia later, that he only wants to keep Liz in the game. Jason agrees because it would free up Liz to work with only the two of them.
1:30 AM BBT: Austin tells Julia that Jason wants the two of them to join the game. Julia tells Austin that Steve told her that he hopes that the vote is unanimous tomorrow so that the rumors of him being America’s Player die down. Julia tells him that it’s genius for him to vote John out to blame it on Steve. Austin tells her that this is the week they make huge deals to get them through next week safely.
1:50 AM BBT: Jason and Meg tells Shelli that Austin confirmed to him that there is twins and that her name is Julia. Jason tells her that Austin said he’s okay with Julia going home as long as they keep Liz. Vanessa enters the room and Jason fills her in on it as well. Jason tells Vanessa and Shelli that Austin wanted to make the deal with him so that he wouldn’t come after him or the twins next week so that Liz can fully enter the game.
2:10 AM BBT: Shelli tells Clay about Austin telling Jason about the twins, trying to make a side deal with him, and saying he’s okay with getting Julia out as long as they keep Liz in the game. Shelli tells him that this shows that Austin is a lose cannon and boneheaded to think that Liz would be okay with getting her sister out. Shelli tells Clay that Austin has no loyalty at all, that he doesn’t care about getting further in the game, or bettering their group because all he cares about is getting to jury with Liz. Shelli tells him that they need to tell Liz that Austin is throwing her sister’s name under the bus as a potential target. Shelli tells Clay that at least they now have Austin as a potential target if they need one.
Clay and Shelli agree that they should form a new alliance with them two, Jason, Meg, and Vanessa since their one with Austin is basically done. Clay asks her what she thinks about riding it out with John, Jackie, Becky, and Vanessa. Shelli tells him that they’ll just wait to see what happens tomorrow.
2:45 AM BBT: Shelli tells Vanessa that it’s obvious that Austin is making moves without them now. Vanessa agrees and asks why he wouldn’t run a deal with Jason by them. Shelli tells her that Austin isn’t running any of his deals by anyone. Vanessa says that it’s obvious that Austin isn’t thinking past jury because Liz isn’t going to want to be with him when she founds out that he was the reason her sister was evicted. Shelli, Clay, and Vanessa that they should tell Liz or Julia about what Austin is saying so that they both want him out, they can get Austin out, then the twins will be loyal to the three of them.
Shelli asks Vanessa what she thinks about them connecting with Jason, Meg, and James. Vanessa tells her that as long as her, Clay, and Shelli are going into the new alliance together, she’s willing to do it if it needs to be done.
4:15 AM BBT: Jason tells Meg that he wants Austin, Steve, then the twins out in that order. Vanessa joins their conversation. Jason and Meg tell her that people are forgetting about Steve and it’s starting to concern them because they could see him easily making it to the final 4. Jason and Meg explain to Vanessa that if they get Steve out after Austin and the twins, he’d be making it too far, so they need to get Steve out after they get Austin out.
