It’ll be another insane day in the Big Brother house as the first double eviction of the summer will be this evening! Although there is almost guaranteed drama to follow from that, what we didn’t expect is for a falling out to happen with Austin and Vanessa just before! It’ll tell a lot and set the pace for the coming weeks depending on who it is that wins the double eviction HOH and who they take out.
9:40 AM BBT: Wake up call.
9:55 AM BBT: Meg promises Becky that she’ll be protected by both them and Austwins, so she doesn’t have to worry about Vanessa sending her home. James agrees and says that Austin and the twins need them for the numbers, so they won’t turn on their deal.
1:25 PM BBT: Julia tells Vanessa that Becky is the person that they have to get out tonight. Vanessa says that they’ll need both Austin and Liz to be willing to break the deal to keep Becky safe because otherwise they won’t have the votes and she wouldn’t even bother nominating Becky. Julia tells Vanessa that John is good to have in here because he’ll target Jackie and Jackie for them, so he shouldn’t be the one they get out during the double eviction. Liz joins the conversation and Vanessa asks her if she’d vote out Becky if she was nominated. Liz says that she would and that it’s not even in question. Vanessa begins getting aggravated with Austin for studying with Jackie, James, and Meg so much.
2:00 PM BBT: Austin tells Liz and Julia that in the last two weeks, Vanessa has been going too fast, and all the deals she has made caught up with her. Austin tells the twins that he agreed to nominate John and Steve, only to put up Becky if John wins the veto. Austin says if he does go back on the deal to nominate Becky, he’ll say that he’s heard that she was after the twins.
2:05 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Austin that Jackie, James, and Meg would not be okay with him using Becky as the replacement nominee. Austin tells her that they are. Austin tells her that he doesn’t want any of her conspiracy theories. Vanessa tells him that there isn’t any conspiracy theories and that she’s on his side, unlike Jackie, James and Meg. Vanessa reminds him that James sent home Jace and Clay, two of their allies. Austin tells her he doesn’t want to hear this and that he doesn’t give a damn. Austin stormed out of the room.
2:10 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Liz and Julia that she doesn’t like Austin’s attitude and him acting as if she owes him anything. Vanessa adds that Austin wants to believe that Jackie, James, and Meg on on their side, which they might be, but she doesn’t think that they are. Vanessa starts questioning if Austin is working with the other side, purposely studying with them with wrong answers so they lose the competition. Liz tells her that Austin isn’t smart enough to do that. Vanessa tells the twins that she screwed up her own game by keeping Austin in the house, now he’s in on it to purposely make the two of them lose the next competition.
Vanessa tells Julia that Austin is mad that she can see through the wrong answers he’s been trying to give them because it was only after that did he get and storm out of the room.
2:15 PM BBT: Austin tells Liz that he’s done with and tired of Vanessa’s conspiracies. Austin tells her that she has gone to bat for Vanessa in the last 48 hours and she’s still yelling at him. Austin adds that is not something that Shelli would or has been doing. Austin tells her that Vanessa acts crazy and that’s not something he likes having in the game. Liz tells him that she’ll always be a target. Austin tells her that Vanessa needs to stop telling him every 10 seconds that he can’t trust anyone but her. Liz says that it would still be better for them to keep Vanessa over Shelli. Austin says for now, but he says he doesn’t answer to Vanessa anymore.
Austin tells her that if didn’t do everything he has for Vanessa in the last 24 hours, Shelli would be the one staying tonight. Austin tells her that he feels bad for Shelli now because Shelli didn’t treat him like this, question him everyday about what side he’s on. Austin tells her that Shelli didn’t make him grovel like a little bitch for 48 hours like Vanessa made him do. Austin tells her that Vanessa hasn’t even been voted to stay yet, but she’s already trying to tell him how to play the next 4 weeks. Liz asks what has Vanessa done for him. Austin tells her nothing, other than making a bunch of jury deals he doesn’t know about and creating a side alliance called The Generals. Austin tells her that it could work better with Shelli than he could Vanessa, but it’s too late.
2:30 PM BBT: Vanessa asks Julia if she thinks that Austin will backdoor her now. Julia tells her that she thinks that Austin purposely picked that fight with her. Vanessa says that she doesn’t trust Austin and something isn’t sitting right about all this. Julia tells her that she won’t forget about what Austin did to her and won’t ever trust him for it. Julia tells Vanessa that she trusts her 100% and says that she believes her when she says that Austin is feeding them wrong information. Vanessa tells her that they have to drop it because otherwise Austin might realize that she’s onto him and might flip the vote.
2:45 PM BBT: Liz tells Julia that the reason they got so far in the game is because of Austin and fearing the three of them as a trio. Julia tells her that Vanessa is paranoid that Austin would backdoor her. Liz tells her that she needs to stop thinking that way. Liz tells her that if Vanessa ever put Austin up, she’s done with her. Julia says that Vanessa isn’t going to do that. Liz tells Julia that Vanessa is the one making all the side deals, the one they have to watch, not Austin.
6:30 PM BBT: Shelli and Jackie are evicted
7:15 PM BBT: John tells James that he feels terrible. James tells him that it’s alright, that he had to make a tough decision like everyone else will have to make eventually. Vanessa joins them in the kitchen and thanks the both of them for their vote.
7:20 PM BBT: Austin tells Meg and Becky that John likely didn’t use the veto because he thought that Becky would be put up. Meg says it doesn’t make sense why Steve would choose Jackie over someone who has been beating him in competitions. Becky says Steve is going to be a wreck. Meg says she doesn’t feel bad.
7:25 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Julia that they’ll now be in the final four together with Liz and Austin. Vanessa asks Liz who Austin was going to backdoor. Liz tells her that it would have been Becky. Vanessa tells Liz that Austin didn’t want to win it, that he was going to throw it to Steve once John got out. Vanessa tells Liz that Becky is crying because she’s sad about Jackie leaving, she’s crying because she’s (Vanessa) still in the game.
7:30 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Meg that he doesn’t think she was anymore than just a pawn, that the target was Jackie because Steve thinks that Jackie was the most likely to come after him if she won HOH. Meg tells her that it’s funny because Jackie was never going after him. Vanessa tells her that it is nothing personal. Meg tells her that it is a little personal because of something said to her before tonight’s show.
7:35 PM BBT: James tells Meg that he thinks this move was pre-meditated by either Vanessa or Austin because Steve isn’t the one to think of something like this. Meg tells him that she’s already starting to regret keeping Vanessa. James tells her that it would of happened either way. Becky tells them that the only thing she can think of is that John was upset about Shelli going home and that’s why he didn’t use the veto. Meg tells them that Vanessa came up to her and forced another deal out of her before the HOH competition. James said she did the same to him. James tells her that they’ll have the numbers again if they can get John and Steve.
John joins the room and Meg asks him if he knew about this plan before it happened. John tells her that Steve only asked him if he’d be okay with not using the veto. Meg tells them that she feels like Steve lied to her and that they’re getting played by Steve.
8:05 PM BBT: Becky tells James that she’s going to have to make sure that she isn’t getting played by John. James tells her that if they don’t merge with someone, they’re going to get picked off because Vanessa and Austwins have the numbers. James tells her that there is one group that hasn’t lost one person this entire time. Becky tells him that she knew that Vanessa and Austin were trouble.
8:15 PM BBT: John tells Becky that Steve isn’t thinking like they are, that Steve is wanting to keep a bigger target like Vanessa in the house because she would be targeted before he would be. John tells her that the reason he didn’t use the veto was because either her or James were likely to go up. Becky tells him that Steve is now the number 1 target in the entire house because he doesn’t have anyone. John tells her that he has all of Vanessa’s side. Becky tells John that he needs to go talk with Meg and James and tell them that he didn’t use the veto because he thought she was going up because that’ll show loyalty. Becky tells her that them two, James, and Meg have to work together. John tells her that he thinks he’ll be able to pull in Steve.
8:15 PM BBT: Meg tells James that it’s funny because they had Steve’s back. James tells her that Steve didn’t know that. James tells her that ever since plans flopped, Austin hasn’t been in the have-not room to talk once.
8:20 PM BBT: Becky tells Meg and James that Steve wanted to keep Vanessa in the game because she’s a bigger target than he is and that he feels like if Vanessa goes, he’ll be the next one out. Becky tells them that they’re outnumbered, so they need to bring in John. Meg tells them that she has to calm down because she’s ready to bite Steve’s head off. James and Becky tell her that she can’t because they need numbers.
8:30 PM BBT: Meg and James agree that they have no choice but to work with Becky at this point, but that they have to be careful with how much information they give her.
8:35 PM BBT: Becky returns to James and Meg with John with her. Meg tells John that their numbers are dwindling and their group is the only one who has played the game and actually been on the block, unlike Austwins. John tells Meg that he had to keep the nominations the same because Steve would have put up Becky. Meg asks him who is the most dangerous in the game. John tells her that it’s Vanessa. Meg tells them that she never guessed that Vanessa had Steve in her pocket. Becky tells Meg and James that Vanessa creates paranoia, makes you feel like someone is against you, then offers you a helping hand.
Becky tells them that their odds of winning are good because they have four competitors while Vanessa’s side only her and Austin because the spring break twins aren’t even going to try. Becky tells Meg that bringing John into the fold will help because James is logical and John is physical. Becky and Meg agree that they’ll put up Vanessa and Austin and leave Liz for a replacement nominee if someone wins veto and uses it.
8:50 PM BBT: Steve tells Meg and James that the reason he put up Jackie as the target was because she was the only person who acted distant with him, along with someone telling him that Jackie was planning on targeting him. Meg tells him that she has not once heard Jackie say anything about going after him ever. Becky tells Steve that he needs to question the people who told him that because they blatantly lied to him. Becky asks who it was that told him that. Steve tells her that if she were to guess, she’d probably be right. Meg tells Steve that from this point forward, she just wants an open line of communication between the two of them. Becky tells Steve that they’ll overlook what happened with Jackie if he keeps this all to himself.
9:00 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Liz and Julia that Becky has to go, so they’ll put her up with Meg. Vanessa adds that if Becky wins veto, James will be the backdoor option.
9:15 PM BBT: HOH competition begins.
10:15 PM BBT: Liz wins HOH!
10:20 PM BBT: Austin tells Liz and Julia that they have to use this to get safety from everyone this week.
10:25 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Julia that they have to get Becky out this week because they can’t risk Jackie coming back into the game with Becky still in the house because that would be too strong of a duo. Julia agrees and says that if Becky were to go, she’d (Julia) be able to win any physical competitions moving forward. Liz joins the conversation and Vanessa tells her that the optimal target would be Becky.
10:30 PM BBT: Becky tells Meg that this is exactly why Shelli needed to stay this week because Vanessa is very manipulative and already starting to control Liz’s HOH. Meg tells her that if they kept Shelli, she would have turned Steve against them. Becky says that if it isn’t her that goes this week, it’ll be James. Meg says it would be John.
10:45 PM BBT: Vanessa tells John that if he does go up this week, he won’t be the target and they have the votes to keep him. Vanessa adds that if he somehow does go home, she’d eat her shoe.
10:55 PM BBT: Steve tells John that he thinks the Liz is just going to go after the Goblins and if he were to be put up, it would just be as a pawn. John tells him that the Goblins would throw him under the bus to save themselves.
11:05 PM BBT: Austin, Liz, Julia, Vanessa, and Steve begin discussing who they should put up. Austin and Vanessa start pushing for John to go up with Becky so that way it ensures that Becky is the one who goes home. Liz says that if Becky stayed after being nominated, she’d come after her. Vanessa tells her that Becky would come for her because she’d go for Liz. Julia says that if Becky manages to save herself, the backdoor option needs to be James. Liz agrees.
Vanessa tells Austin and the twins that they can make a deal with Meg and James where they can’t nominate or backdoor them and have to put up John and Steve if they win HOH next. Austin tells them that James and Meg will also be on board with their plan to get Becky out since they don’t like her after they learned about what Becky has done. Vanessa says they can make a final 6 with John and Steve, and another final 6 with James and Meg so that way they’re covered on all sides.
11:22 PM BBT: Austin’s Angels are formed.
11:35 PM BBT: Liz asks Austin and Julia what she should do if John got off the block. Austin tells her to nominate Meg and send Becky home. Austin tells them that he might prefer getting John out instead of Becky. Julia tells him no, that she’s not wasting her HOH on John. Austin tells them that he’s worried John would do something crazy like put him up with Vanessa.
12:00 AM BBT: Steve gets his HOH basket.
12:35 AM BBT: Austin brings up the deal that Vanessa made with John before the HOH competition. Liz tells him that was very sneaky. Austin tells her that Vanessa is still with them and will be until the very end when she has no choice but to turn on them. Austin tells her that they’re not going to make Vanessa’ decision, they’re going to make their own decisions this week. Liz asks Austin what she should do if Becky wins veto. Austin tells her that they’ll sit down with James and Meg to reassure them that Meg would have the votes. Austin adds that Vanesssa’s idea to take out James was a terrible idea. Austin tells her that he’s worried about Vanessa getting with John and Steve, then making a final 6 with James and Meg. Austin says they should make a final 5 with them, Julia, James, and Meg.
1:00 AM BBT: Vanessa tells James that Austin, Julia, and Liz want to make a final 6 deal with them and Meg. James agrees and says that they’ll call their new alliance called “Brass Tacks”.
1:25 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Steve that the two of them and John need to make a final 6 with James and Meg so that way John feels safe when he’s up on the block.
1:45 AM BBT: Liz HOH room reveal.
2:10 AM BBT: Liz and Austin tell Meg and James that she knows Vanessa already talked to them about making a final 6, but they’d like to actually make a final 5 with them, not including Vanessa. Meg asks Liz if she knows who she is targeting. Liz tells her that she’s basing it off who has had her back and who hasn’t. Meg tells her that there is a lot of people that she doesn’t have close relationships now, so she’s open to whatever she wants to be the target because there isn’t really a wrong choice now. Meg and James tell them that they have their back and will openly share important information with them because they really do like them and want to work together.
James tells Austin, Liz, and Julia that Vanessa came to him about making a final 6 with all them, but she also said that she wanted to talk about something in private with him. Austin says that she probably wanted to make another deal with him separate. Austin tells James that they have to let Vanessa think that they’re in a final 6, but truly it’s a final 5 between all of them. Austin says that Vanessa should be sharing the same information between all of them, so they’ll be able to compare notes on what she says.
2:20 AM BBT: John tells Becky that they have to hope that Austwins are dumb enough to put her up with James so that way they’d have to votes to get him out. John tells her that if he wins the veto, he’ll tell them he isn’t going to use it, then blindside them at the veto ceremony by using it and that way Liz puts up Meg because they didn’t plan for anything.
2:30 AM BBT: Austin tells the twins that they’re in too deep with Vanessa to nominate her now, but they’ll tell James and Meg that they won’t have a problem with Vanessa going if they’re looking for a target.
2:35 AM BBT: James tells Meg that she needs to be careful what she says because when she said that they shouldn’t believe things that are said, it makes it seem like she’s guilty of something and they can’t have those thoughts in their allies’ head. James tells her that it’s time to buckle down and be careful what they tell Vanessa, Steve, John, and especially Becky. James tells her that they know that Austwins aren’t going to turn on them now because they know about Brass Tacks and that would be too incriminating. James and Meg agree that they rather roll with Austwins than have to be with Vanessa, John, and Steve.
Meg tells James that they have to get away from Vanessa. James tells her that they still have to play nice because if she does stay, they don’t want her after them. Meg tells him that Becky just scares her. James tells her that it’s because Becky is a manipulator like Vanessa.
2:50 AM BBT: Becky goes upstairs to talk with Austin, Julia, and Liz. She broke down everything that happened the week that Austin nearly went home. Becky told them about James trying to throw the Battle of the Block to keep Liz nominated, and explained how Vanessa came up with the plan to backdoor Austin.
2:55 AM BBT: Steve tells John that he feels like he should have gone after Austin. Steve tells him that he got nervous because he never heard anything about Austin coming after him, just knows that Austin is an ass and that’s about it.
3:20 AM BBT: Austin, Julia, and Liz agree that Becky has to stay so that they can get her to take out Vanessa. Austin tells them that they have the votes to put John up with Becky and get John out. Austwins begin to rant about Vanessa. Julia says that she thought she could trust Vanessa. Austin says that Vanessa only wants to be with them when it’s convenient for her.
3:25 AM BBT: Freaks & Geeks gets renamed to Scamper Squad. Vanessa asks them what Becky came upstairs to tell them about. Austin tells her that it was just the same spiel from last week. Vanessa tells them that they need to make another final 6 deal with John and Steve so that John feels safe when they put him on the block as a pawn.
3:35 AM BBT: Austin tells the twins that they’ll wait until last minute to tell Vanessa they’re keeping Becky. Austin says they’ll ask Vanessa if James threw the BOB when he was nominated with Liz, so if she still denies it, that alone will be reason enough for them to tell Vanessa that they’re not doing her dirty work for her. Julia tells them that she can’t even look at Vanessa now because she thought she could trust her. Liz tells them that Vanessa is trying to be like Derrick making a bunch of deals, but Derrick didn’t get found out like Vanessa has. Austin tells them that they need Becky to stay so that her and Vanessa go after each other.
Julia asks what they would do if John won veto. Austin tells her that Meg would have to go up and they’d have to send Becky out which would suck. Julia says she feels like she’s been played by Vanessa. Austin says that she has, but they’re in too deep for with her for them to be the one who nominates her. Austin explains that by keeping Becky, Becky could win HOH, nominate Vanessa, then they’d have the numbers to insure that Vanessa goes. Austin says that they’ll tell Becky about their plan, but if she tells John that he’s the main target, Becky will be the one they evict. Liz tells him that she doesn’t want that deal with Vanessa, Steve, and John. Austin tells her that they’re not going to make it because that’s completely a Vanessa thing. Austin finishes the conversation by letting the twins know that they can’t let Vanessa know they’re having doubts about her.
4:30 AM BBT: Liz asks Julia if she’s making the right choice because neither Becky nor John have wronged them. Julia says that it sucks she has blood on her hands, but it needs to be done and that Becky hasn’t talked game with them until now, so that is reason enough for Becky.
