It’s veto competition day in the Big Brother house, but not only that, Zingbot will also be making a return today! The fan favorite will be hosting his annual Power of Veto competition, as well as zing all the houseguests. Today’s feeds will be heavily centered around what to do Monday at the veto meeting, as well as Zingbot’s zings.
10:30 AM BBT: Wake up call.
10:40 AM BBT: John asks Austin who he should pick for veto if he gets Houseguest’s choice. Austin tells him that he doesn’t think it matters, but he could pick Meg if he wants someone who won’t win it, but if somehow does win it, would use it. John leaves, and Liz makes an annoyed grunt. Austin tells her that they have to be teammates with John if he wins it, so she just needs to be cool. Austin adds that they have to go with whoever wins because they play with winners.
11:10 AM BBT: Steve tells John that he saw Vanessa walking out of the HOH room with Austin before the nominations, so he’s now learned the importance of being the last one in Austin’s ear. Steve tells John that if one of them comes down, it’s looking like either James or Vanessa will go up. John asks Steve if he thinks anyone other than themselves would use the veto of them. Steve tells him James and Meg want Vanessa gone, while Austwins and Vanessa want James gone, so yes he does. John and Steve agree that they just have to secure their own fate and go out and win the veto themselves.
11:45 AM BBT: Austin tells Liz that John winning veto would be worst case scenario because he’d have to make a messy decision as to who the replacement nominee would be. Liz tells him that Vanessa, James, or Meg needs to win it because that way it wouldn’t be their fault that John gets sent home.
12:15 PM BBT: Liz tells Julia and Vanessa that if they play in the veto, they have to play to win so that they can keep the nominations the same. Vanessa tells them that she has no problem with taking the heat for keeping the nominations the same after what Austin did for her. Vanessa tells Julia that they have to be careful how much longer they keep Steve in the game because he has a sore loser side. Vanessa adds that Steve will do whatever it takes to win and won’t feel bad about anything for a second. Vanessa tells them that Steve might need to go before James because he can win more competitions than James can. Vanessa adds that Steve refusing to be pawn shows that he only thinks about himself, unlike her who offered to be the pawn. Vanessa, Liz, and Julia say that Steve is annoying and two faced. Vanessa tells them that they can’t rely on Steve’s vote and says that it’s just an illusion that they can count on him.
Julia asks if she thinks that John and Steve have been working together since the beginning. Vanessa tells her that there is no doubt in her mind that they have been. Julia says worst case scenario would be John wins veto. Vanessa asks if that means James would have to go up. Julia says yes. Vanessa says that wouldn’t be bad for them, but it might be for Austin since he has to get more blood on his hands.
3:35 PM BBT: Austin, John, Steve, Meg, Julia, and Vanessa are playing in veto.
3:40 PM BBT: John tells Steve that he trusts Austin and them. Steve tells him that he’s worried that Austwins and Vanessa’s alliance with James and Meg is solid. Steve tells him that Austin nominated 2 alliance members, so there has to be something up that they don’t know about. Steve tells him that they just have to pray that Vanessa goes up, or James at the very least. Steve tells John that he’s thrown his fair share of HOHs, but that phase of the game is done for him and he’s going to start trying.
6:00 PM BBT: Austin tells Liz that based on the questions she’s getting in the DR, someone is lying to them. Austin asks her if she even wants a final 5 with Steve and Vanessa after they send John out. Liz says she doesn’t and adds that they have to split up Steve and John this week, regardless of what happens. Austin tells her that if they don’t make the right decision, one of them will be going to jury next week. Austin tells Liz that they’ll ask James, Meg, Steve, and John if they want Vanessa out, if they all say yes, they have to keep her because that means the four of them are working together. Liz agrees and says that they’re fools to think that they’re good with everyone. Liz adds that she thinks there is more of a relationship between Steve and James that they know of because they’re always playing chess together. Austin agrees and says that’s why James didn’t go up during the double eviction. Austin tells Liz that if Vanessa truly is alone and they send her home, that allows two pairs to band together, creating a four person alliance. Liz tells him that Steve might be the one who needs to go because they can say that they found out that he’s been working with John all along.
Julia joins them and asks if they think that John, Steve, Meg, and James are working together. Austin says not yet. Liz tells her that is why they can’t send Vanessa out. Julia asks what she should do with the veto. Austin tells her that it depends on who is lying to who, because someone is lying to them. Austin adds that it’s suspicious that nobody is coming to talk to him about what to do with the veto when they’re all candidates for a backdoor target. Liz tells him that John is the only one who came to talk to him. Austin says then that means that John might be playing him. Julia says she doesn’t think they should backdoor Vanessa. Austin tells her that he agrees. Julia tells him that Vanessa said that Steve needs to go soon because he’ll start winning competitions. Austin says that she may be right, or she’s playing them.
11:15 PM BBT: Vanessa wins veto
11:20 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Austin, Liz, and Julia that she isn’t using the veto on anyone. Julia asks if John is going home. Austin tells her that as of right now, yes, but he needs to go downstairs and find out what’s going on. Steve joins the room and Vanessa asks him why Vanessa is crying. Steve says he doesn’t know. Julia says she probably thinks that she’s going to use the veto on Steve and Austin will backdoor Meg or James.
11:25 PM BBT: Meg tells Vanessa that she’s crying because it feels like she’s done nothing but embarrass herself on national TV when it comes to competitions.
11:30 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Julia and Liz that she bets that Steve wishes she didn’t throw her under the bus now. Vanessa, Julia, and Liz agree that Steve is a fake for acting happy about her winning. Julia says that he thinks Vanessa will use the veto on him. Vanessa asks if Steve is stupid. Julia and Liz agree that they could beat John easier than Steve, so they should think about getting Steve out this week.
11:55 PM BBT: Vanessa tells John that Meg crying makes her feel like she wasn’t supposed to win the veto because she was the backdoor plan. John tells her that he thought the backdoor plan was James. John adds that Meg might be crying because she thinks she’s going to lose James, who is all she has. John tells Vanessa that she doesn’t expect her to use the veto on him. Vanessa tells him that she’s going to do whatever Austin wants since he’s the HOH, so if he wants it used on him, he should campaign to Austin, not her. Vanessa adds that unless he has something she should know, something that would make her do something other than what Austin wants. John says he thinks Austin will want the veto used on Steve.
12:20 AM BBT: Vanessa asks Steve to give her his word that she wasn’t the backdoor target this week. Steve gives her his word.
12:25 AM BBT: John tells Steve that Meg and James are going to rat them out to Vanessa about knowing about her being the backdoor plan. Steve tells them that Meg and James wouldn’t know about them knowing that.
12:25 AM BBT: Liz tells Julia that Steve is the fakest person in the house. Julia tells her that she doesn’t think Vanessa should use the veto to backdoor someone like James. Liz agrees. Julia tells her that Steve has to be next to go. Liz and Julia agree that John has to go this week, but say that they have to get them to campaign against each other so that they get information on Steve. Julia tells her that Steve would be more loyal to them than John would because he’d go after James and Meg. Julia tells her that it would be the perfect opportunity to get James out. Liz tells her that she had a talk with James and feels good about him now. Julia tells her that Steve has to stay because his only alliance is them, so he has no choice but to work with them.
Liz tells Julia that Steve is going to know something is up if James or Meg doesn’t go up because they made a final 5 with him and John. Julia tells her that they’ve spread themselves too thin. Liz tells her that Steve is going to act like a little salty bitch again when the veto isn’t used.
1:00 AM BBT: Liz tells Meg that Vanessa isn’t using the veto and it comes down to whoever pleads their case better. Meg tells them that Steve is going to do better in the upcoming question comps than John will. Liz tells Meg that Vanessa probably wants John out. Meg tells her that is more of a reason for them to keep him over Steve. Meg tells them that John is getting beat down, becoming less and less of a threat to them.
1:15 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Austin the way that Meg was acting is making her think was the backdoor target. Austin tells her that she wasn’t, that he told Meg that he wanted the nominations to stay the same. Austin tells Vanessa that Steve might have a deal with James since Steve didn’t put him up during the double eviction. Austin adds that Steve might be playing both sides of the house. Vanessa asks Austin what Steve said about her, wanting to know if Steve is the enemy. Austin tells her that Steve didn’t say that kind of stuff about her, that he actually revealed that John might have lied about him walking in on her telling Clay and Shelli. Vanessa tells Austin that she doesn’t think Becky told John about the 8 person deal, she thinks it was Steve. Austin tells her that this is his first time really questioning Steve. Vanessa tells him that he cannot trust Steve at all.
Austin tells Vanessa that he wants to get back to the point with her where the is no secrets between them, they tell each other anything and everything. Austin begins telling Vanessa everything related to Becky and John wanting to target her and telling him and the twins information about her working with everyone. Liz joins the conversation and Vanessa tells her and Austin that James, Meg, Steve, and John are all working together to split them up. Austin tells Vanessa that all those people were trying to get her out this week. Vanessa tells her that everyone was going to lie to him to get him to put her up as a pawn, then they’d flip on them, evict her, then it would be 5 vs 3 and Austwins would get picked off. Liz tells Vanessa that when she was HOH, everyone wanted her to backdoor her (Vanessa). Austin tells them that Steve has been adamant about getting out James and Meg, though. Vanessa tells him that she’d just be shocked if James, Meg, Steve, and John aren’t working together.
Austin asks who Steve would go after if he won HOH. Vanessa tells him that Steve would go after Meg and James because she’s going to play his game of being fake, then convince him that everything is fine between them. Austin asks if they could bring John into the fold. Vanessa tells him that whoever from John and Steve is remaining would work with them afterwards. Vanessa tells them that if Steve is saying he doesn’t have a final 2 deal with John, he’s a goner because he’s lying to their face. Julia agrees and says that Steve has to go. Julia adds that Steve is a way bigger threat than John is. Vanessa tells them that if they get rid of Steve, James and Meg would still be working together and could pull in whoever returns from Jury, as well as John. Vanessa tells Austwins that John led her to believe that they’re totally cool. Austin tells her that is a lie because John wanted her out. Vanessa tells them that they have to let John and Steve know that she might use the veto so that way they start spilling the beans. Liz tells Vanessa that everyone was dragging her name through the mud and wanted her to go home.
1:55 AM BBT: Steve tells James that it looks like he’ll be going home this week.
2:35 AM BBT: Austin tells Liz and Julia that they now have Vanessa 100% and everyone still wants her out, so they’re going to be good moving forward. Austin tells them that if they can get information on James, they’ll backdoor him this week, so hopefully Steve talks. Austin tells them that if he finds anything out about James that is fishy, he has to go.
3:00 AM BBT: James and Meg began discussing their current situation. They both agree that they need someone on their side like Jackie to return, then pull in whoever from John and Steve stay to their side because Austwins and Vanessa is a guaranteed final 4, so they need to flip things . Meg added that she knows Vanessa was manipulating her crying to be something about her when it wasn’t.
