It’s been an absolutely insane day in the Big Brother house so far as Vanessa has learned about the 5 person alliance made to get her out, though Austin and the twins have managed to successfully avoid all the blame and pin it all on just one person. Things will continue to heat up throughout the day as much information comes out.

10:40 AM BBT: Steve asks Vanessa if she’s okay. Vanessa gets sarcastic and angry towards him. Vanessa tells him she’s great and she’s sure that he’s totally concerned about how she’s feeling. Steve asks if he should leave her alone. Vanessa tells him that he should probably do that.
10:45 AM BBT: Austin, Julia, and Liz go on a rant in the HOH room about how much they hate John and need him gone this week since he decided to be an ‘idiot’ and tell Vanessa about the deal that they had made to get Vanessa out.
10:50 AM BBT: Vanessa asks Steve who orchestrated the 5 person deal to get her out. Steve tells her that it wasn’t him. Vanessa says that it was him and calls him a ‘mother f*cker’. Vanessa tells him that he doesn’t have her vote and he can say goodbye.
10:55 AM BBT: Steve asks Austin about the 5 person deal. Austin tells Steve in front of James, Meg, and Vanessa that Steve was the one who started and put together the 5 person deal to get Vanessa out. Steve tries asking Vanessa a question but she tells him not to talk to her.
11:00 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Austin and Liz that she’s not mad at them at all because they had reason to doubt, meanwhile Steve doesn’t because she has done nothing to him except be the kindest in the entire house.

12:10 PM BBT: Vanessa decides not to use the POV
12:15 PM BBT: Liz asks John why he would tell Vanessa about the 5 person deal they had. John tells her that he felt like he was going home and that it was clear to him that after they put up Steve and him that they were closer with Meg and James then to them two. Liz tells him that it was weird of him to do this when he has a chance to stay. John tells her that he doesn’t think he has a chance. Liz tells John that this makes him feel like every time his back is up against the wall, he’s just going to squeal on whoever he’s working with. John tells Liz that he’s sorry that he did this, though at the same time he’s not because either way he’s leaving or staying.
12:20 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Austin, Liz, Julia, Meg, and James that they should vote how they want, but she’s 97% sure that she’s going to vote out Steve this week after what he’s done to her and how he’s been so hypocritical and phony.
12:25 PM BBT: Liz tells Austin and Julia about her conversation with John. Liz tells them that John said being that he put the two of them up, it seems like they’re closer with James and Meg than they are with Steve and John. Austin says that John is so dumb. Julia says it wasn’t even an alliance. Austin tells them that Vanessa wants Steve out badly. Julia and Liz tell him that they want John out badly. Austin tells them that they need to talk with Steve. Julia and Liz tell him that keep John is good for Vanessa’s game, but not theirs.
12:35 PM BBT: Austin tells John that he doesn’t understand why he automatically assumed he’s working with James and Meg when that isn’t the case. John tells him that he knows how they treated Becky last week and that is how he felt like he was being treated. Austin tells John that all of Vanessa’s venom is towards Steve right now, so he has a chance to stay this week because Julia and Liz are likely going to be the swing votes. Austin tells John that he just needs to talk with the twins because they’re both upset about him telling Vanessa in the first place.
Austin tells John that James and Meg weren’t master minding this plan with him. John tells Austin that he believes him, it’s just that people were making deals and he was getting the short end of the stick. John tells him that he had to do what he had to do, just like when Austin had to make a deal with James. John tells Austin that he doesn’t blame him for anything because it saved him, because now he’s (John) just trying to save himself.
12:55 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Julia about John outing the alliance to her. Vanessa tells her that she’s not mad at them at all because they weren’t acting fake, unlike Steve who was putting up a front like he had no issue with her when she actually did. Julia tells Vanessa that she feels bad about all this coming out, but says that it wasn’t an alliance and Steve orchestrated it all. Vanessa tells her that it’s almost good that this happened because now she knows what it feels like to be put on the spot like Austin was when she nearly backdoored him. Vanessa tells Julia that she doesn’t have anything to worry about because she doesn’t have any hard feelings towards her, Austin, or Liz.
12:55 PM BBT: Austin tells James, Meg, and Liz the he thinks they could all get together and make a deal with John to where he would throw the next HOH.
1:10 PM BBT: Austin tells Steve that Vanessa is angry at him right now, but she needs to just calm down. Austin adds that he tried telling Vanessa that Steve wasn’t the one who orchestrated the alliance, that they were all involved. Steve asks who it was who said he orchestrated it. Austin tells him that he thinks it was Liz who said that he was the connection, though he shouldn’t get mad at the twins for saying that. Steve asks why Vanessa is only angry with him about the deal. Austin tells him that Vanessa thinks he’s being phony with how he’s been acting, by being happy with her, etc. Austin tells Steve that Vanessa wants him to go, but the twins want John to go. Austin adds that by the end of the week, he’ll calm Vanessa down and explain to her why he needs to stay.
1:30 PM BBT: Vanessa asks if she did something wrong based on how she handled the situation. Austin tells her that she didn’t, that he just told Steve to let her cool down before coming to try and talk with her. Austin tells Vanessa that Steve was a victim of believing what Becky said, just like him and the twins were. Austin tells her that John is lost to them now because he’s gone rogue and is willing to make deals that he won’t keep. Austin adds that keeping Steve in the house is keeping the bigger target that would be their shield. Vanessa agrees. Vanessa asks if he thinks that her relationship with Steve is salvageable. Austin tells her to wait a little bit longer, but he does think it can be fixed. Vanessa tells him that at the end of the day, Steve can’t be trusted. Austin tells her that John can’t be trusted either, and on top of that, John would work with whoever returns from jury. Austin tells her that right now, he feels like keeping Steve is their best option. Vanessa tells them that both are targets and she doesn’t mind which ones goes.
2:00 PM BBT: Julia tells Austin that they have to convince Vanessa to be on board with getting out John. Austin tells her that Vanessa is open to the idea. Julia and Liz both tell him that they want John gone. Austin leaves the girls to talk alone. Julia tells Liz that they’ve already come this far with Steve, so at least he’d target Vanessa instead of them. Liz and Julia agree that James and Meg want Steve out, so it makes them question if Vanessa is going to vote against what Autswins want, and vote with James and Meg instead.
3:40 PM BBT: Julia tells Austin and Liz that she hates how when Vanessa gets information, she has to start crying and playing the victim card. Austin changes the subject to Steve and questions why they’re keeping him because he’s another person that he doesn’t want to put on the block, but will have to. Austin tells them that they can make a deal with John that he’ll throw the new HOH and he’ll be the pawn next to whoever returns from jury. Austin adds that Steve will realize that they really aren’t with him when they have to nominate him again next week.
5:25 PM BBT: Liz tells Austin that she was being mean when talking about Austin, but doesn’t want to be portrayed bad for it because her and Julia were saying mean things. Liz tells the live feeders for talking bad about John, it’s just that he really pissed her off. Liz tells Austin that when someone returns from jury, John is going to spill the beans. Liz tells him that Steve also feels betrayed by them, so he’d be coming after them, not Vanessa. Austin tells her that it comes down to who is more likely to win HOH. Liz tells him that John is due, but Steve might be a little more likely. Austin tells her that they have to let Steve know that he’s their guy, even though they’re taking John out.
8:55 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Austin that she wants Steve out, but won’t throw a fit if the group decides to get out John instead. Vanessa tells him that Steve could be their shield if Jackie were to return from jury. Austin tells them that they could bring Shelli in more if John was gone.
9:05 PM BBT: Meg tells James that Austwins are sitting pretty. James agrees and says all they have to do is get out one of them and they’d both be done. James tells Meg that if he wins HOH, he might have to make another big move and put up Austin and Liz so that one of them goes home. James adds that if the person that returns from jury wins HOH, they might have to flip to their side of the house.
9:15 PM BBT: Austin tells Vanessa that they have Steve dead in the water, which is rare for Steve. Vanessa tells him that is another good point. Vanessa tells him that she needs to have a fake make up with Steve, but says that she doesn’t trust him.
9:50 PM BBT: John tells Vanessa that if he were to stay, they could work together and she’d be his #1. John adds that if he’s not her #1 as well, there is no point for him to stay. Vanessa tells John that the reason she doesn’t fault him for being in the alliance is because he never owed her any loyalty like Steve did. Vanessa tells him that if he does stay and they’re to work together, they need to cross their fingers that Shelli comes back or Becky comes back and is willing to listen to him. John tells her that he thinks it’s a good idea that they become a duo while people think they don’t like each other.
11:55 PM BBT: Steve tells Vanessa that it sounds like what she’s been mad at him today about was the things the he told her the night before. Vanessa tells him that he never said there was an alliance, only that they were coming after her. Steve tells Vanessa that the alliance to get her out was formed this week. Vanessa begins getting frustrated with him because everyone in the house is saying that it was made last week. Steve tells her that he must be wrong then. Vanessa tells him that this is the shady stuff that he does that everyone talks about. Steve tells her that in the real world, he tries to avoid confrontation at all costs, which is what he did with her, which is what he didn’t let her know he was upset because he rather brush it under the rug.
Vanessa and Steve goes outside to talk on the hammock. Vanessa stops by Austin and the twins to ask them if they alliance with them, John, and Steve was created last week or this week. Austwins tell her that it was created last week. Steve tells Vanessa that he has already admitted to being wrong about that. Vanessa tells him that this is making her question how fake he has been with her all together, even making her question the personal stuff he told her as to it being true or not. Steve tells Vanessa that he’s sorry for hurting her because he hates hurting the people he’s connected with, which is something he’s done with her more than anyone in the house. Vanessa asks him who he would have put up had he won HOH. Steve tells her James and Meg. Vanessa asks why she wasn’t his target if he was questioning her because of what James and Meg had told him. Steve says it’s because he wasn’t sure.
12:30 AM BBT: Austin, Julia, and Liz join Vanessa and Steve at the hammock. Vanessa confirms with them that they’re all voting together, so if they want to keep him, she’s going to respect it. Liz and Julia tell Steve that they love him and want to keep him for sure this week. Austin asks why John was telling people that he broke his word. Steve tells him that John is likely pulling any string her can to stay. Steve tells Austwins and Vanessa about the alliance between him and John being called ‘The Rockstars’. Steve goes on to tell them that it was John who told him that Vanessa was going to be nominated when Becky was HOH, not Becky herself.
