As the weeks continue and the number of houseguests dwindle, Austwins numbers are becoming more and more apparent, as well as more and more powerful. They’ve made it to the point where they control enough votes to hand pick who goes home each week for the rest of the game. However, it’s not gone unnoticed.
Although James and Meg are in Austwins’ alliance, they know that they’re fifth and sixth on the totem poll, with Austin and the twins being the top three and Vanessa being the fourth. While playing pool with James, Meg brought up how pretty Austin and the twins are sitting, which sparked a conversation about turning on Austwins and making the big move of putting two of them up.
Flashback to 9:01 pm yesterday night for the start of the conversation between James and Meg. Meg told James that Austin, Liz, and Julia are sitting pretty. James told her that all Austwins would have to do is take out on of them, then they’re both done. James went on to say that he might have to make a big move the next time he wins HOH by putting up Austin and Liz together. Meg told James that she has been thinking about doing the same, but said he’d be screwed if he went through with that. James told her that he wouldn’t be because either Austin or Liz would go home, cutting down their numbers.
Meg asked James wouldn’t he feel guilty about going against Austwins. James told her that Austwins aren’t going to feel bad when they get down to final 5, then turn on the two of them. James went on to explain that if they waited until they were forced to turn on each, there is no way that they could take out Austin, Julia, Liz, and Vanessa all by themselves, so the two of them are going to have to turn on them sooner. James told Meg that this is the only chance they have to get beyond final 5 or final 6.
James and Meg went on to discuss the factor of someone returning from jury. James told Meg that if whoever came back from jury won HOH and said that they wanted to go against Austwins, they’d have to secretly flip to that side of the house, otherwise they might as well just give Austwins the $500,000 now.

It’ll be interesting to see if they go through with this because James brought up the valid point that if they don’t do this soon, the chance of them taking out 4 people in a row by themselves is slim to none. However most of their plan depends on who comes back, as well as the returning jurors motives. It’ll be interesting to see their plan unfold, nonetheless.
