The new week is already off to a crazy start and it’s only bound to get even more hectic after today’s nominations. Today’s feeds will be heavily focused around the fallout from Steve putting up two of Austwins, something that they obviously won’t like. We’ll also get to see planning for next week and who Steve and his allies want to get out of the house this week.
10:55 AM BBT: Steve tells Austin that he doesn’t think he can put both the twins up together because it’s too much of a slap to the face. Austin asks if Steve is saying that he’s going to go up with one of the twins. Steve tells Austin that he has the votes to keep him this week. Austin asks if he’s going up next to Liz. Steve nodded in confirmation. Austin tells Steve that he can control Liz more than he could control Juila, so the fallout from this will be worse with Julia this way and that Liz is more likely to win the next HOH to be able to keep him safe. Austin asks if Vanessa is on board for him to stay. Steve tells him that the votes are there. Austin asks for Steve’s word that he wants him to stay. Steve tells him that he wants him to stay. Austin tells Steve that he gets it, he understands, and won’t hold it against him if he really does have the votes for him to stay. Austin asks if he ends up on the block against Julia, would he still have the votes. Steve says he would. Austin tells Steve that he’s still going to be good with him next week.
11:00 AM BBT: Steve tells Liz that her and Julia are not going to be going up together. Liz asks if that means he’s still thinking of putting at least her up. Steve says he is. Liz says that she understands that he has to do what is best for his game. Liz adds that she never nominated him, but she’s just glad that she’s not going up with Julia.
11:05 AM BBT: Steve tells John that he’s telling Austin that he has the votes to stay. John tells Steve that Vanessa is freaked out about him possibly not putting up Austin. Vanessa joins the room and Steve tells her about telling Austin that he has the votes. Vanessa tells Steve that she’ll vote however he wants her to. Vanessa asks Steve if he wants them to reassure Austin that he has the votes. John tells her that he already has. Steve tells her that Austin will likely approach her about it.
11:05 AM BBT: Austin tells Liz to not try and find out what they did wrong to get nominated because they did so much right. Austin tells Liz that she can’t make Steve feels like they’re declaring war on him, otherwise Julia will for sure go up if the veto is used. Austin tells her that Steve said he isn’t the one he wants gone. Liz tells him that Steve didn’t tell her that. Liz says that she should have taken Steve out if she had the chance. Austin tells her that John would have won and this same thing would have been happening. Liz begins crying and tells Austin that she doesn’t want to be separated from him and be in the stupid jury house.
11:15 AM BBT: Vanessa asks if Liz is okay. Austin says she isn’t, but quickly changes the subject to the veto and says that he just has to win it. Austin adds that if Vanessa wins it, it would be her best move to use it on him. Vanessa tells him that if she were to do that, he has to realize that John and Steve are working together and there is a ‘move to be made there’. Austin and Vanessa start discussing veto scenarios. Both agree that Julia would go if the veto was used on him. Vanessa tells Austin that if Liz goes this week and John wins next week, the two of them are going to be nominated together.
11:20 AM BBT: Vanessa tells Liz that she knows this is a crappy spot, but being on the block with Austin isn’t the worst case scenario if she thinks about it because it could be her sister. Vanessa tells Liz that even if she does go, nobody is ever going to take out Julia because she isn’t with anyone, and they’ll both be splitting that money anyways. Vanessa tells Liz that her and John are a vote, so being that Steve is going after Austwins, these nominations aren’t the worst thing. Vanessa adds that her and John did promise to vote how Steve wants, though she’s going to do what is best for her game.
11:30 AM BBT: Liz tells Julia that she’s going on the block with Austin. Julia asks why Steve would do that. Liz tells her that it is the only thing that makes sense because obviously Steve wouldn’t want to go to the final five with a trio. Liz tells Julia that she (Julia) has to win veto because that way they’d control the votes. Julia tells Liz that this just proves that Steve is more loyal to John. Liz says that’s obvious because Steve is the low man on the totem pole in their alliance with him. Julia asks Liz how she knows that she’s going to be the target. Liz tells her that Steve got John and Vanessa to promise to vote how he wants, and her having her sister in the house, two people who have each other’s back no matter what, is a huge threat. Julia tells Liz that it’s fishy that Vanessa isn’t going up. Liz explains to Julia that them two and Austin are three people, Vanessa is one, John is one, and they’re the three headed monster. Julia tells Liz that if she goes, the link between her and Austin are gone. Liz tells Julia that Steve knows that.
11:45 AM BBT: Liz tells Austin that she knows that she’s the target. Austin says that she is if she stays on the block, but Steve could switch the target over to him at any time. Julia says that she has no respect for Steve because he’s a “shit head”. Liz tells Julia to shut up. Austin tells Julia that being like that isn’t going to help them at all. Austin tells them that Steve might have just lose three jury votes. Julia confirms that she isn’t voting for him. Julia tells Austin and Liz that Vanessa might have made a final two deal with Steve and/or John. Austin tells her that they’re really screwed if that is true.
12:20 PM BBT: Julia tells Steve that she’s not happy about her sister going up, but she understands that it’s a game move to split up the trio in the house.
12:30 PM BBT: Austin asks Steve if he’s sure that he wants to put him up and not both of the twins. Steve says that he’s sure. Austin tells him that the girls are going to be playing hard for the veto, so it just makes him nervous.
12:30 PM BBT: Liz tells Julia that Austin is already over and not even trying to comfort her. Liz adds that she hopes and prays that Steve hides up in the HOH room all week because she doesn’t even want to look at him, though she can’t be a raging bitch even if she wants to be one this week. Julia tells Liz that she feels like it’s the house versus the twins. Liz tells Julia that she’s going to get to the end because nobody is threatened by her. Julia tells Liz that she’s disappointed in Austin for acting like this because Clay wouldn’t of left Shelli alone after finding something like this out.
12:35 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Steve that he’s in a great spot because Austwins are going to go after John next week, not him because Liz is no longer mad. Steve tells Vanessa that they have to focus on this week for now and win the veto because they’re going to be screwed if they don’t. Vanessa adds that she’s going to do everything she can to stop the remaining Austwins from targeting him because that wouldn’t be good for her game if he’s taken out. Vanessa adds that Austin is wanting her to use the veto on him if she wins it, but she’s going to do whatever Steve wants because she’ll never go against him.
12:55 PM BBT: Austin tells Julia that if there is any way they can throw the veto to her, that’s what they’re going to do because if she wins it and uses the veto, they couldn’t put her up as the replacement nominee. Austin adds that if Julia wins it, Vanessa would have to go up and they’d control the votes to get her out. Austin tells them that either Steve or John will be gone next week if John doesn’t win HOH. Liz tells them that if she goes, they better take out Steve.
1:50 PM BBT: Liz tells Steve that she feels like she’s gotten a very raw deal since he made them swear on their families that they wouldn’t put him up, but then he just went on to put them up the next day. Steve tells Liz that if he asked them to swear on their families, he was out of line, very wrong of him, and he’s sorry. Liz tells Steve that she knows he has to do what is best for his game, but says that she doesn’t think that she is the biggest threat to him winning the game.
1:55 PM BBT: Steve says while by himself that Liz thinks she’s the target, but she’s not. Steve adds that things will only get hairy if Julia were to win the veto.
1:55 PM BBT: Liz tells Austin that Steve couldn’t even be a man about it and own up to asking them to swear on their family. Liz adds that she would never go into such depth to make sure she’s safe with someone, then put them up. Liz says that she hopes Steve feels like a piece of sh*t. Liz tells Austin that Vanessa was right and that Steve is fake.
2:30 PM BBT: Julia tells Liz that Austin is walking around all calm, cool, and collected because Steve told him that he wasn’t the target, which is something that he’s withholding from her. Julia asks Liz if she trusts Austin. Liz tells her that she doesn’t trust anyone but her. Julia tells Liz that Steve should be terrified because one of them is going to stay, and whoever it is will be gunning after him. Julia and Liz spend 10 minutes talking about how much they hate Steve. Julia tells Liz that there is no more Austin’s Angels, no more Scamper Squad, that now it is only them two.
3:05 PM BBT: Austin tells Vanessa that the twins are pissed, which helps his game. Austin asks if him and Julia are on the block, would John stay true to their deal. Vanessa tells him that is all on Steve since Steve controls John’s vote. Vanessa tells Austin that the only way he’ll end up on the block with Julia is if Liz is taken down by her own veto, which is the second least likely to happen. Vanessa adds that they’re both screwed if Julia wins the veto because they’ll go up together and there is no play they could make. Austin tells her that there is a play, they could force Steve to put up John and be loyal to Scamper Squad or else they’ll all come after him and he’ll lose their jury votes. Vanessa tells Austin that there is a way for him to become Steve’s John, but he’d have to have a falling out with the twins after Julia won the veto. Austin said he could make that happen.
5:00 PM BBT: Steve nominates Austin and Liz
5:00 PM BBT: Liz is crying hysterically to Austin and Julia. Julia tells them that it’s hard not to take this personal when they’ve been friends with Steve, then he backstabs them like this. Liz tells Austin that she had a gut feeling it was going to be Steve to betray them, that they should have gotten him out before Shelli when they have the chance. Austin tells Liz that this will all change if Julia wins veto. Liz tells him that it’s hard to depend on Julia to do that. Liz reveals that she got up and walked away during the nomination ceremony, but says that it’s because she was about to start sobbing. Liz says that Steve is fake, she’s done being mean, but this means war.
5:15 PM BBT: Austin tells Steve that he’s trying everything he can to calm the twins down and understand this game move. Austin tells him that he knows Steve had to do this and he doesn’t fault him for doing it. Austin tells Steve that he’ll have his vote next week if he needs it and will try to influence the remaining twin’s vote as well.
5:25 PM BBT: Austin tells John that if he somehow ends up on the block with Julia, he hopes that he can still count on his vote because the point of these nominations were to split up the twins, which getting him out wouldn’t be doing that.
5:40 PM BBT: Steve begins talking to feedsters in the HOH room. Steve says that if Liz wins veto, Austin is going because they’re not going to send Julia out. Steve adds that Austin is scared and doesn’t trust him because there is no other reason why Austin would be offering him all this stuff. Steve adds that he doesn’t believe a word Austin says and that Austin is making him not trust him.
5:50 PM BBT: Vanessa tells Steve that nominations couldn’t have gone any better because his heartfelt speech was good and now nobody will hate him. Vanessa tells Steve that they need to make a deal with Julia if she wins the veto so that she wouldn’t use it and in return they’d keep Liz over Austin. Vanessa tells Steve that if Austin were to win veto, they’d have to agree to keep Liz because she has the better shot at winning.
6:00 PM BBT: Steve tells us that he doesn’t understand why Liz is mad. Steve says that Liz must be mad at herself for doing his dirty work during the double eviction and leaving John in the game. Steve adds that tomorrow is huge because of the veto competition. Steve says that Austin or Liz could win it and they’ll be fine, just not Julia. Steve adds that Julia is the weakest competitor in the house, so he couldn’t fathom her beating everyone else. Steve mentions that he’s nervous that John is throwing competition because he’s a twist because John is good at comps, but hasn’t won a HOH.
6:35 PM BBT: Vanessa tries explaining to Liz that Steve had no choice but taking a shot at the trio when there is only six people left and that any reasonable person would have made the same move that Steve did. Liz tells Vanessa that she knows, she just can’t stop crying because she can’t control it. Vanessa tells Liz that she needs to fight for veto as hard as she can because if Austin wins it, she’s going to be on the block with her sister. Vanessa adds that her and Julia will always be the bigger targets in the house while Austin is there. Liz tells her that she’s realized that.
7:30 PM BBT: Liz tells Austin that she hasn’t talked to Steve yet. Austin asks if she even wants to yet. Liz says that she doesn’t want to and that Steve isn’t the swing vote, he isn’t the deciding factor, and the only power he has left is to pick who would go up next to her if someone won veto. Austin tells her to just wait until after veto to go talk with Steve.
12:05 AM BBT: Liz tells Austin that this is a James and Meg situation like last week where Steve doesn’t care who goes, though she’s the James and he’s the Meg, so she’ll be the first choice as the target.
