There is only one day until the veto meeting, so today’s feeds will heavily focus on the plan for tomorrow evening, if they plan on just keeping the nomination the same or making a power move, along with Vanessa attempting to push her agenda through Liz. Things will get even more interesting if Austwins end up telling James and Meg about Vanessa’s latest plans.
3:15 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Liz and Julia that if Shelli reenters the house, that would be a number on their side, whereas if Jackie came back, it could be a number for James and Meg’s side. Vanessa adds that if Becky came back, she’d have John or James and Meg. Vanessa tells them that it would be better to target James or Meg next because Becky and Jackie would both work with those two if they came back. Vanessa tells them that all her deals with the order side of the house are dead, that they were only for the double eviction. Vanessa tells Liz and Julia that she trusts the two of them more than anyone in this house and says she would never go against them. Julia tells Vanessa that they have her back, which is why they’re getting out Becky because she’d go after her.
7:15 PM BBT: Becky tells Liz that she expects the nominations to stay the same, and also asks if she’s still the pawn to get John out. Liz confirmed that she is getting the nominations the same and the plan to get John hasn’t changed.
7:35 PM BBT: Liz tells Austin about Becky coming to talk to her about still being a pawn. Austin tells her that Becky can’t be mad at them for blindsiding her because it wouldn’t be their fault that the entire house decided to vote her out.
7:50 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Liz that Steve has been acting weird and it seems like he’s trying to avoid her. Liz tells her that she hasn’t noticed, she says that Steve has just been having fun with James.
7:55 PM BBT: Vanessa begins crying to Steve, saying she’s lonely and that it feels she’s on the block even though she’s not. Vanessa tells Steve that if she’s going up tomorrow, he should tell her. Steve tells her that she’s not going up. Vanessa tells him that whenever she goes into a room, everyone leaves. Vanessa says that she doesn’t have anyone. Steve tells her that she has him. Vanessa says that he’s paranoid to talk to her for even 2 seconds and she’s almost at the point of not talking to him at all because it’s pointless.
8:00 PM BBT: Liz tells Austin/Julia that she’s worried if they leave Vanessa in the house for another week, she’s going to take Austin out. Julia tells her that they need to take Becky out this week and get Vanessa out the next because getting Vanessa out this week isn’t a good move. Liz begins telling Austin about Vanessa saying that she feels like he’s being weird with her. Austin says they need to talk to Vanessa, calm her down and make her feel like nothing is wrong. Julia tells Austin that everyone knows that Vanessa is crazy. Austin asks what if she wins HOH and does something crazy. Austin adds that if he was HOH, he’d be backdooring her this week. Julia tells her that they’ll stop talking to Vanessa all together if she takes one of them out.
8:05 PM BBT: Vanessa begins talking with Steve and Liz, and eventually with Austin joining in as well. Vanessa tells Liz that Austin is avoiding her after originally being her only friend in the house. Liz tells her that Austin’s new buddy is James because he wanted a bromance. Vanessa asks Liz if she’s mad at her for anything. Liz tells her that she isn’t. Liz tells her that she doesn’t have anything to worry about because she’s not getting backdoored. Vanessa tells Liz that Steve tried saying she created the 8 person alliance, so she asks if Liz can tell Austin that isn’t true.
Liz tells Austin that Vanessa is feeling lonely. Austin questions why. Vanessa interjects and says that it’s because she is. Vanessa tells her that she doesn’t have anyone and as the number dwindle, she’s even more alone. Vanessa tells Austin that Becky told Steve that she was the one who started the 8 person deal when it wasn’t, so she’d like him to tell Steve that it wasn’t her.
8:15 PM BBT: Becky tells Meg and James about her talk with Liz. Becky adds that the words you don’t want to hear when you’re being told you’re a pawn are “You have a good shot at coming back” and that’s why Liz told her.
11:35 PM BBT: Steve tells John that he doesn’t see the target flipping to him because it seems like whatever conversations he had went very well. John tells Steve that nobody is going to finish the job on James and Meg, and the two of them will be targeted before Austwins take a shot at James and Meg. Steve asks what he’s proposing if he thinks they’re going to be targets before James and Meg. John tells her that he doesn’t know yet. Steve tells John that by default, Austin will eventually have to go after the twins because there is no way he’d want to go to the final 3 with them. Steve asks if Austwins reacted positively to him saying he wanted Vanessa out. John confirms that they did and says that proves there isn’t an Austin and Vanessa final 2. Steve asks if he doesn’t have a final 2 and wouldn’t want to take the twins, who does he have a final 2 with. John tells him that maybe Austin is just lost.
12:35 AM BBT: Liz tells Austin that John has got to go because he cannot win this game. Liz adds that he won’t be getting her vote. Austin tells her that he still feels good about John though. Liz tells him that there has to be a reason that he’s called to the DR so much, so that’s suspicious.
12:40 AM BBT: Julia tells Meg that she thinks that Vanessa is going to go after John. Meg tells her that she just can’t have Vanessa taking out Austin or James. Julia tells Meg that everyone is onto Vanessa and she will be the target this week, but says that Liz just can’t backdoor Vanessa like that. Meg tells her that she knows.
12:50 AM BBT: Austin tells John that he 100% has his vote to stay and if there is a tie, Liz will break the tie by voting to keep him. Austin tells him that they have to make Vanessa feel really good going into the next HOH so that she throws it. Austin adds that if it’s down to the two of them, he’ll throw it to John. Austin tells John that it would be a massive blow up if he targeted John, but says that he’s willing to do it. Austin tells John that Vanessa wasn’t lying about being last in the room when the 8 person deal was made, but the reason is because she called the meeting, she was just last to arrive. Austin tells him that the entire 8 person was meeting to get James, Meg, and Jackie on her side. Austin adds that Vanessa will likely try to get them to target Meg and James next week even though she’ll have a deal with them, so that way she can sit back while people do her dirty work.
1:05 AM BBT: James tells Meg that they have a strong team with Austwins, but says that Austin might have a final 2 with Vanessa that they don’t know about. Meg tells him that her question is who Austin plans to take to the final 3 because he couldn’t take the twins. James tells Meg that he doesn’t want to be the one to take out the twins because of how loyal they’ve been to the two of them. Meg says that someone has to go after Austwins, but agrees with James that it’s too early. Meg asks what they’ll do if Jackie comes back. James tells her that if Jackie comes back, they’ll go after the twins. Meg tells him that John and Steve have to go soon too. James tells her that he rather send Steve home instead of John.
1:30 AM BBT: Becky tells Meg and James that she wishes she was getting more reassurance from the people she’s supposed to be working with because she says that she doesn’t feel like a pawn.
1:50 AM BBT: Becky tells John that he’s up on the block with her because he would vote to keep her and would campaign for her. John tells her that he’s screwed if he doesn’t start winning the HOH competitions and start making moves. John tells Becky that Vanessa has lost all her power and she’s realized that, which is why she looks so defeated. Becky tells him that Vanessa has always looked defeated, that it’s apart of her game because then it never looks like her fault. Becky tells John that she has a better chance than her when it comes to reentering the house quietly without fuss, so hopefully they wouldn’t just get her out again the next week. John tells Becky that he’ll do everything he can to send Vanessa to jury next week.
2:25 AM BBT: Austin tells Liz, Julia, and Meg that he’s starting to get worried about Vanessa making it to next week. Austin adds that John told him that Vanessa said she threw the HOH that Becky won. Julia tells them that Vanessa also told her that she threw the double eviction HOH. Austin tells them that they have to make Vanessa feel safe going into the next week so that she throws it again. Meg changes the subject back to Becky and tells them that if they get her out this week and she were to come back, they have to send her right back out because this will be the second time they turned on her, so Becky would likely be after her and James.
2:45 AM BBT: Austin tells Liz that he’s worried about Vanessa winning next week because if she does, they’re likely both getting nominated and he’s going to be the one who is screwed. Liz asks why Vanessa would nominate her when she didn’t nominate Vanessa. Austin tells her so that Vanessa can get him out.
