It’s the last day of the week in the Big Brother house before eviction night, which means today’s feeds will be heavily focused on both the nominees campaigning, and those that are safe planning for next week. John seems to have show interest in possibly flipping the votes, so we might be in for some drama as well.
11:35 AM BBT: John asks Vanessa if she still wants Meg out. Vanessa tells him that she does, that she believes it’s what is best for their games. Vanessa adds that once Meg is gone, theirs and James’ interests are the game, so they might be able to work something out.
2:25 PM BBT: Meg tells James that she tried talking with Austin, but he said he didn’t want to flip on the twins because it could ruin things with Liz after the show. Meg adds that she’ll try to talk with Steve, though it feels like she’s already out the door. James tells Meg that when he wins HOH, he’s going to make crazy deals. James adds that Julia is going to become the new pawn once Meg is gone.
2:55 PM BBT: Austin tells Vanessa that since the next HOH is going to be crapshoot, it just ruined Meg’s campaign because now she has a better shot at winning it. Vanessa asks Austin if Liz would kill him for evicting Liz. Austin tells her that he would never do that. Liz tells him that he’s willing to talk with her about it. Austin tells her that even if he did lie about it then pin the blame on someone else, Liz is going to find out about it after the show is over and it’ll ruin things between them. Vanessa tells him again that if he thinks it’s a good play to evict Julia, she’ll hear him out. Austin tells her that it isn’t a good play this week.
Austin tells Vanessa that if she ever nominates two of Austwins together, Julia and Liz are going to be forever pissed because only he will be able to understand why it’s needed. Austin adds that if she takes him out, she’s going to have two irrational girls going nuts for revenge, so that’ll be his play once someone guns for him. Austin tells Vanessa that he’s worried about the twins going up, one winning veto, then he goes up as the replacement. Vanessa tells him that he could help him get votes. Vanessa asks Austin if he’d put up Steve and John. Austin says he would with the intention to backdoor James. Austin tells Vanessa that his read on John is that he’s going to take the shot that Austin can’t (twins), because John wants to work with him.
4:10 PM BBT: James tells Meg that he kept trying to plant the seed in Austin’s head that John and Steve are going to slip through and win the game to become the new Ian Terry. Meg tells James that she really does think it’ll be John or Steve in the final 2. James agrees and says the person sitting next to them will either be him or Austin. Meg tells James that she doesn’t know what else she can do. James tells her to try and talk with Steve because after that conversation, she’ll 100% know her fate.
4:30 PM BBT: James jokes with Julia and asks her why he should vote to keep her because he’s trying to give both nominees and equal shot. Julia laughed about it and James told her that he was just kidding.
4:50 PM BBT: John asks Steve if they need to flip the vote. Steve tells him that he doesn’t know. John says that it’s now up in the air who could win this next HOH, and if one of Austwins were to win, they’re going to go up with James and they’ll have the possibility of going home.
4:50 PM BBT: Julia tells Vanessa that she cannot stand James, that him asking her to campaign was rude, immature, offensive, and slap to her face. Julia adds that Meg told Austin that John and James are going to nominate both twins together. Vanessa questions the validity of that and says if that was true, it wouldn’t help Meg’s campaign. Vanessa tells Julia that Austin needs to realize that if he did flip the vote, Liz would kill him.
4:55 PM BBT: Meg tells James that if he wins HOH next week, he needs to leave John alone and focus on the other side. James agrees and says he’ll nominate Austin and Vanessa, then put up Liz if one of them win veto.
5:30 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Steve that she doesn’t think it would be possible for the vote to flip on them without either of them finding out. Steve agrees and begins telling Vanessa that he 100% trusts her, wants to take her to the end, and that’s why he’s bringing this to her now so that the two of them can discuss it. Steve asks if Vanessa agrees that if you have to win competitions, that’s not good. Vanessa confirms. Steve tells her that if they take Scamper Squad to the final 5, they’re going to have to win competitions because it’ll be them two vs three of Austwins. Vanessa tells him that it’s actually them have three and the twins being alone because Austin knows that he can’t go the the final three with the twins. Vanessa adds that they could get Austin to throw the final 5 HOH if the two of them agree to nominate the twins.
Vanessa tells Steve that they don’t have a deal with James and Meg, so leaving them in the game is very risky because they couldn’t control who they’re going to put up like they can do with Austwins. Vanessa adds that even if they did have a deal, they couldn’t trust it because James has broken deals before. Vanessa explains to Steve that if they take out Julia, that will create an alliance between James, Meg, Austin, and Liz because of how much closer they already are. Vanessa continues by saying that is why Austin has been trying so hard not to piss James off, even going to the length of getting Julia nominated just so that they wouldn’t piss of James by keeping someone like Steve or John over Meg. Vanessa adds that if Austin wins and puts up one of the twins as a pawn, they could flip the votes, or if Austin is put up next week as a pawn, they could flip the votes. Vanessa adds that taking out one of Austwins is good, but not the weakest person that they’d want to take to the final three with them.
Steve asks Vanessa what happens if Austwins win HOH. Vanessa tells him that if one of the twins win, they’ll put up James because it is only Austin who is close with him. Steve asks what happens if John wins. Vanessa tells him that they’d have Austin’s blessing to nominate the twins, but instead of getting out Julia, they’d vote out Liz. Vanessa tells Steve that if they flip the votes now, they’re handing Austin the game by setting him up perfectly with James and Meg. Steve tells her that if James wins HOH, they’re screwed. Vanessa says they’re not because James might target the twins because he wants Austin all to himself.
6:30 PM BBT: Vanessa and Steve ask Austin what James would do if he wins HOH. Austin says that James doesn’t tell him much, but he thinks that if James doesn’t nominate the twins, he’s likely going to nominate the two of them because James likes John. Vanessa asks Austin what is better for his game. Austin says with James winning HOH, the better move would be to get James to nominate both twins, so that way they could vote out Julia without him (Austin) being blamed. Austin adds that he could lead James into putting up the twins if James were to win HOH. Vanessa tells him that if he were to do that, her and Steve would owe him. Austin tells them that it’d be nice to have their support if he’s against the twins. Vanessa and Steve both tell Austin that he would. Austin finishes the conversation by telling them that he can’t ever flip on Julia or Liz because of what it’d do to his public image and it would ruin things with Liz.
7:50 PM BBT: Vanessa tells John that Austwins needs to be broken up, but this week can’t be the week to do it because it’ll form an alliance between James, Meg, Austin, and Liz. Vanessa explains that Austin has had a game-long relationship with James, so they’ll continue to be tight after they save Meg. Vanessa tells John that Austwins aren’t targeting him, they’re targeting James, so he doesn’t have to worry about that. Vanessa adds that the fact Austin is willing to give his blessing about the twins being put up brings Austin’s loyalty into question. Vanessa tells John that if they keep Meg, it’ll be them two and Steve vs Austin, Liz, James, and Meg. Vanessa tells John that Austin said he could influence James into putting up the twins if James were to win HOH, which proves that if Austin is able to influence him, the two have to be tight. Vanessa tells him that they need to split up Austwins, but they need to take out a stronger player, not the weak one they could take to final 4 with them. Vanessa finishes the conversation by telling John that if they were to flip the vote, they couldn’t do it without Austin’s blessing without causing chaos.
8:25 PM BBT: John tells Steve that if they flip the vote, James and Meg won’t be coming for them, and they’ll have a better shot at winning the HOH with less people from Austwins competing. Steve asks if he thinks James and Meg would work with them. John says he doesn’t know. Steve tells him that they’ll talk more about it later tonight. John tells him that if Austin sees them scampering, he’s going to get worried and Austin being against them is the one thing they don’t want. Steve tells him that Austin is going to be against them when they flip the vote. Steve asks John if he wants to flip. John tells him that he’s on the fence about it. Steve tells him that he thinks it’s too risky and asks if John agrees. John says that he agrees it is very risky. John and Steve say they’ll talk more about it later tonight.
9:20 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Julia and Liz that nobody is going to flip their vote without getting Austin’s blessing first. Vanessa tells them that they just need to make sure that they let Austin know that he can’t screw around. Vanessa adds that Liz controls Austin more than she thinks she does, so she needs to keep him in line. Liz tells Vanessa and Julia that she doesn’t think that Austin would flip. Liz tells them that Austin could try and blame Steve. Vanessa tells Liz that she thought the exact same thing. Vanessa adds that Steve would never flip without getting Austin’s blessing. Julia tells them that Austin couldn’t frame Steve because she trusts Steve more than she actually trusts Austin. Vanessa and Julia tell Liz to plant seeds in Austin’s ear about her being heart broken if Julia were to go, and other things like that. Liz tells them that she’s obviously going to watch the show when it’s all said and done, so if Austin did flip, they’re over and she’ll never talk to him again. Liz tells Julia and Vanessa that if Julia does get evicted, it’ll be Austin’s fault.
9:35 PM BBT: James and Meg begin discussing continuing with Operation Trojan Horse and trying to flip Austin’s vote, pushing the idea that Austwins are going to be targeted next week because they’re the last standing trio. James tells Meg that she can tell Austin that she has a lot of influence in jury.
10:15 PM BBT: Meg tells Steve that she is 95% sure that she’s going, but she still wants to make her case. Meg tells him that they’re up against a strong trio, and now one of them is one the block, so this is their opportunity to break it up. Meg adds that she’s asking for his vote because this is their chance to take the house over from Austwins. Meg tells Steve that she’s talked to John about it and he understands where she’s coming from as well. Meg explains to Steve that if they take out on person from Austwins team, the rest of the team can crumble because it’s happened to her after Jason was taken out. Steve thanks Meg for coming to talk to him, gives her a hug, and they both leave the room.
10:40 PM BBT: Austin tells Steve that he’s going to talk with James to see if he can secure something just in case James were to win the HOH. Austin adds that the two of them need to work with John because Vanessa was right when she said he’s in a impossible scenario when it comes to final five with the twins.
10:45 PM BBT: James tells Meg that he caught Austin and Steve whispering, but they stopped when he walked up there, which lets him know that those two are working together. Meg agrees and says that Steve is working with either John or Austin way closer than they think, but she thinks it’s Austin. James tells her that maybe he should call out Austin about him working with Steve. James tells her that the entire other side of the house might be in a final six. Meg tells her that they just evicted John, so she doesn’t think that John is apart of it. James tells Meg that Austin is the brains of Austwins, so if he were to take Austin out, that whole side of the house would break down. James tells her that Austin not telling him about working with Steve means that Austin is playing a lot of people in the house. James tells Meg that if he wins HOH, he’s going to turn the house upside down and believes that John will do the same.
11:10 PM BBT: John tells James that he cannot change the outcome of the vote by himself. James tells him that he knows and doesn’t fault him for it. James tells him about catching Austin and Steve whispering upstairs, which lets him know that those two are working together. John tells him that is what he told him and Meg last week. John adds that the two of them just need to win HOH or else they’re done.
12:25 AM BBT: Julia asks Austin why he stopped talking to John when she walked up. Austin tells her that John was telling him who he’d target, which he said was Steve and Vanessa, but he doesn’t believe that. Julia asks Austin if he’s voting to keep her. Austin says that he is and that she shouldn’t be paranoid after all he’s done for them this entire game. Julia apologizes, leaving Austin and Liz alone. Austin asks why Julia would ask them. Liz tells him that it’s because he’s been acting weird. Liz tells Austin that she’ll be heartbroken if Julia goes. Austin tells her that he wouldn’t do that to her because she means more to her than the game does. Austin adds that there isn’t enough money in the world to make him do that. Austin explains to Liz that he needs people to think they can talk to him individually so that there is a bit of a divide between the two of them so that it’s less likely they end up nominated together.
1:30 AM BBT: John asks Steve if he wants to flip the vote or not. Steve tells him that he doesn’t know. John adds that Vanessa obviously doesn’t want them to, but he doesn’t know if he wants to either. John tells Steve that he just doesn’t want to end up in the situation where they’re both on the block like last week. Steve asks John if he thinks James would put them up together. John tells him no. Steve asks if Julia would put them up together. John tells him maybe, but they’d go after James first, then them. Steve asks who James is close with. John tells Steve that James believes he’s close with him (John), but James hasn’t said as much about Austin. Steve asks if John’s fear is Julia putting them up. John tells him no, that his fear is going up with James and the votes flipping or James wins veto. Steve asks if he’s suggesting a four person deal with James and Meg. John tells him yes, but that’s only if they were to flip it.
1:35 AM BBT: Steve spends the next five hours discussing with himself about flipping the vote. Click here to read the full article.
