It’s going to be a crazy day in the Big Brother house for many reasons. The first being that Austin’s entire game was exposed last night and all of his allies have turned on him, which the twins will also be doing soon enough. The second being that Austin is going to throw a hinky vote towards Audrey in hopes of blaming Steve as America’s Player, but this could go terribly wrong for him if Shelli tells Julia what Austin’s been saying because then Julia will tell Shelli that it was really Austin planning the hinky vote. Regardless, you’re not going to want to miss out!
10:05 AM BBT: Wake up call.
10:45 AM BBT: HOH Lockdown.
2:30 PM BBT: Audrey tells Vanessa that she thinks it was mean spirited for Becky to make her a pizza, tell her that production said she could eat it, then she gets called into the DR and told that she’s receiving a penalty vote for breaking have-not restrictions. Vanessa tells her that she doesn’t think that Becky did it out of malicious, that it was just a mistake.
6:50 PM BBT: Jackie and Vanessa win HOH.
7:05 PM BBT: Jason tells Meg that he’s done helping people study for competitions because he helped Vanessa last night but she made sure that he got out of tonight’s HOH by choosing him to face off against her when she had other options that wouldn’t made them both HOH. Clay joins the conversation. Jason tells him that it doesn’t make sense that they helped Vanessa win this competition when she made sure that they lost. Clay tells him that it’s obvious that Vanessa had a different agenda going into this competition.
7:10 PM BBT: Clay tells James that the one hinky vote is going to drive him nuts, but says that he thinks it’s something they can’t control like America’s Player.
7:35 PM BBT: Everyone is in the bedroom. Shelli says that the hinky vote every week has to do with a twist because that is the only thing that would make sense. Shelli adds that she thinks that America gets to vote on who to vote for each week. Shelli asks if one of them will become America’s Player now that Audrey is out. Meg tells her that it’s still possible that Audrey was never America’s Player. Jason says he doesn’t think that production would let America take over an eviction vote because of how important it is.
8:00 PM BBT: Jason tells Meg that Vanessa is going to be on board with getting Austin out so they need to make sure that Jackie is the one to stay HOH. Meg agrees. Jason tells her that he is certain that Steve is America’s Player and is willing to swallow his tongue if he’s wrong.
8:35 PM BBT: Jackie asks Jason who he’d put up if he was in her spot. Jason tells her that he’d put up Austin with Steve, and have Liz be the backdoor target. Jackie tells him that she’ll nominate Steve with Liz and have Austin be the backdoor target. Jason tells her that she’s going to have to talk with Vanessa about this because she’s not going to be on board with getting one of her allies out.
8:40 PM BBT: Jason tells Jackie, James, Meg, and Shelli that Steve has been throwing HOH competitions because he’s America’s Player and if he were to win it, America would be controlling everything and he wouldn’t be able to stay loyal to the deals he’d make with people.
8:50 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Jackie that she wants to work with her and that they have to work together when it comes to who they’re going to put up. Jackie tells her that she’s thinking about nominate Liz since that’s who nominated her and then Steve cause that’s what everyone else wants. Vanessa tells her that she needs a replacement option, along with being sure of who her target is because she’ll need to put up the target’s ally so that they can’t vote against what she wants. Vanessa tells Jackie that she basically took her nominees right out of her mouth so she’s (Vanessa) going to have to find different nominees. Vanessa and Jackie agree not to backdoor each other regardless of who is dethroned.
Jackie tells Vanessa that she wants to stay HOH. Vanessa tells her that she’s fine with being dethroned. Vanessa says that she’s (Jackie) going to need to get someone to throw it if she wants to stay HOH, but she would feel bad if they get John to do it again. Jackie says she’s willing to ask John to throw it once more. Vanessa tells her that Jason might throw it if they ask him since he knows how important it is. Jackie tells Vanessa that she wants the twins gone before they join. Vanessa agrees and says she’d be stupid to not worry about the two of them joining the game.
Vanessa tells Jackie that she was loyal to Austin and the twins until last week when she found out that they did something she didn’t like. Jackie tells her that if Liz doesn’t go home, they could send Austin home instead. Jackie tells her that if they take Austin out of the picture, the twins wouldn’t know what to do without him and they’d become less threatening. Vanessa tells her that she knows that she’s at the low end of the totem pole when it comes to her, Austin, and the twins, so she isn’t opposed to either going home. Vanessa tells her that if they’re going to get out Austin or Liz, the two of them need to make a long term deal since they’re sending out someone who would keep her safe.
Jackie tells Vanessa that if they get Austin out, it’ll give them two extra free weeks because the entire house will focus on the twins when they both enter the game. Jackie tells her that she’s willing to take the heat for getting Austin out. Vanessa tells her that if they’re going to go after Austin, they need to secure votes before-hand because he might have enough to keep him safe. Jackie suggests she puts up Clay as a pawn. Vanessa tells her that he wouldn’t go home if he was put up. Vanessa says she doesn’t have a deal with Meg, so she could put her up because nobody would ever send her out. Jackie says that if Austin wins the POV and uses it on Liz, Steve will be their backup target. They agree that Liz will be the main target, Austin the backdoor target, and Steve will be the backup target if all else fails.
10:15 PM BBT: HOH room reveal.
10:45 PM BBT: Austin tells Jason that he almost wants to volunteer to go up with Steve and throw it but he’s worried that Steve might win the POV.
10:50 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Austin that they need to talk, but they’re going to wait until after she speaks to everyone else first. Vanessa tells Austin that Jackie thinks she wants to be dethroned, but in reality she doesn’t. Austin tells Vanessa that Jason came to him about the twins and that Jason told him that he wants to let the twins come in the game and that he is the one who said he wants Julia out because he only likes Liz. Vanessa tells Austin to trust her and that if he opens his mouth to anyone, it’s going to do damage to his game. Vanessa tells Austin that he better not lie or be lying to her because she’s going to be pissed. Austin promises her that he isn’t lying.
10:56 PM BBT: Austin leaves the room and Vanessa begins talking to the camera. Vanessa tells us that Austin just lied directly to her face. She says she doesn’t know why he lied, that she’s loyal, but she’s not stupid.
11:10 PM BBT: Becky tells Jackie that she is going to support her by going after the twins if she wants to fire the first shot against them and take out Austin. Jackie says that if they can get out Austin now, the rest of the house will go after the twins and then they’ll have two free weeks. Jackie tells her that she has the perfect excuse to put up Liz since she (Liz) put her up. Becky tells her that she should target Austin but don’t let anyone else know when she’s talking with everyone about tomorrow’s nominations.
11:25 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Clay and Shelli that Austin lied right to her face about what he told Jason. Vanessa tells them that they need to come clean with Jackie about their alliance before putting Austin up because he’ll expose them and then Jackie will lose trust when they really need her to trust them. Vanessa tells the two of them that it’s better for them to keep the twins and get out Austin this week.
11:30 PM BBT: Clay asks Jackie who she would want to go home. Jackie tells him that she’s thinking either Austin or Steve.
11:35 PM BBT (hoh): Austin comes to talk with Jackie as an attempt to broker a friendship between her and Liz so that she doesn’t put Liz up.
11:35 PM BBT: Vanessa asks if it’s better to get Liz or Austin out first. Shelli tells her that it’s best to get Austin out because the twins will trust them even more after they tell the them what Austin said about Julia. Vanessa and Clay tells Shelli that they have to blindside Austin this week all the way up to his eviction because it could come back to bite them. Shelli tells Vanessa that Steve should go up with Liz so that Liz wouldn’t go home in case of a worst case scenario happening. Clay tells Vanessa that he’s willing to go up with Becky so that the two of them can win the BOB. Clay tells her that he just can’t be next to Becky on Thursday because he will go home. Vanessa tells him not to worry because the other side will throw it.
12:05 AM BBT: Jackie joins Vanessa, Clay, and Shelli. Vanessa asks Jackie what she thinks about asking Meg to throw the BOB while on the block with Liz. Jackie tells her that she doesn’t think that Meg would do it. Vanessa asks Jackie if she thinks that Becky would be on board with going up if she were to go up with Clay. Jackie says that Becky likely would be okay with going up as long as she knew Clay was up with her to win the BOB. Vanessa says they need to get Jason, James, and Meg in a room and hope that one of them volunteers to throw the BOB.
Shelli and Vanessa tell Jackie that it’s better to get Austin out over Liz right now. Jackie agrees with the two of them. Shelli, Clay, Vanessa, and Jackie discuss making a final 8 with Becky, James, Jason and Meg if one of them throw it this week to help get Austin out.
12:25 AM BBT: Vanessa and Jackie tells Steve that he doesn’t have anything to worry about because he isn’t going up. Vanessa tells him that there is a plan in place and that she will fill him in on everything later.
12:30 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Julia that Austin told Jason that she’s a twin, what her real name is, and that he’s okay with letting everyone target her as long as they don’t go after Liz. Vanessa tells Julia that she can’t let Austin know that she’s onto him and that she can’t let her sister know because Vanessa needs to be the one to tell her otherwise Liz is going to blow up on Austin and call him out, which is what they can’t have happen. Vanessa tells her that she isn’t their target and that her, Clay, and Shelli have her and her sister’s back 100%. Vanessa tells her that not only is Liz a twin, but she’s in a showmance, so in order to protect Liz, Austin has to go. Julia tells her that she’s on board and that Liz will be on board to once she tells her.
12:45 AM BBT: Jackie asks Becky if she’s willing to go up on the block to win the BOB if she is put up with Clay. Becky tells her that if Clay is going to be the one competing with her, she is.
1:00 AM BBT: Becky tells Vanessa that she’s okay with going on the block as long as they can promise her that whoever is on the other side is going to throw it. Becky also warns Vanessa that calling a meeting between 8 people she wants to work together is super risky because Steve doesn’t sleep and he will catch onto it.
1:05 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Jason, Meg, and James that she now has credible proof that Austin betrayed her, so now he is the target for this week. Vanessa tells them that she loves them and has been wanting to work with them for a while. Vanessa tells them that it would be best for Austin to go home this week, but they need a pawn. Vanessa reminds them that this isn’t an ultimatum, and that they can refuse to throw it if they want to. James says that two of them have already been up last week, so it should be Meg. Meg gets pissed off and tells James that he’s been throwing her under the bus all morning. James tells Jackie that he’s willing to be the pawn if that’s what they need. Jackie and Vanessa promise James that he’s going to be safe and that even if Austin manages to somehow save himself, he’ll still be safe this week.
A final 8 alliance between Shelli, Clay, Vanessa, Jason, Meg, James, Jackie, and Becky is solidified. Their alliance name is “Dark Moon”. They agree that Jackie will put up James and Liz, and Vanessa will put up Becky and Clay. Becky and Clay will win the BOB, Jackie will remain HOH, and Austin will be the backdoor target.
1:50 AM BBT: Julia tells Jackie that she put her up last week, so she understands why she would put her up and that she respects it. Julia tells Jackie that if she doesn’t put her up, she can guarantee her top six because she isn’t working with anyone but Austin. Jackie tells her that if she does put her up, they’d be even then hopefully after they can work up some kind of deal.
1:55 AM BBT: James tells Jackie that she trusted him when he put her up, so now it’s his time to trust her. James tells her that Meg would’ve been the better option, but that she would’ve let her emotions get the best of her.
2:00 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Austin that she doesn’t know who Jackie is going to put up, but it’s likely going to be the two who put her up, which are James and Liz. Vanessa tells Austin that she’s likely going to put Clay up with Becky, and have Becky be the target. Austin tells her that he’s worried they’d lose Clay and Shelli’s trust if they did that. Austin adds that he thinks that Clay and Becky would win the BOB and Liz gets sent home. Vanessa tells him that it’s possible, but highly unlikely that it would happen. Vanessa tells Austin that Jackie said she wants the twins in the game because it creates two new targets. Austin tells Vanessa that he’s worried about Jackie staying HOH and doing something like backdooring him or her (Vanessa).
2:25 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Jackie, Becky, and Shelli that even if something goes terribly wrong with their plan and she remains the HOH, she’s still going to backdoor Austin.
2:35 AM BBT: Austin tells Vanessa that if Liz stays on the block, they have to backdoor Steve. Austin tells her that it is better for their game to send home one (Julia) of the twins when they both join the game so that it will take the heat off them and the other (Liz) can fade into the background. Austin tells her that having both twins in the game at once is just a hindrance to their games. Austin tells Vanessa again that he’s not opposed to sending Julia home because it frees up Liz to do her own thing.
3:05 AM BBT: Vanessa, Jackie, Meg, Becky, and Jason begin laughing and having a good time over Austin telling everyone how he’s safe and has no idea that he’s about to get backdoored his week.
3:40 AM BBT: Becky tells Vanessa and Jackie that they need to get at least one of the twins out because they’re going to be passive and float through the game by not trying to make any big moves.
4:20 AM BBT: Julia tells Vanessa that Austin was the one who voted to keep Audrey because he wanted to frame Steve as America’s Player. Vanessa tells her that isn’t good because after the hinky vote, people were speculating that Clay was America’s Player. Vanessa tells Julia that she and Shelli are going to tell Liz everything about what Austin has been saying tomorrow, so she can’t hint at what happened or else Liz will freak out.
