Big Brother FinaleBoy, was the finale good last night. We saw how Vanessa talked Liz into dropping out of the first HOH, and giving the win to Vanessa. In the second HOH competition, Steve and Liz competed in a crossword puzzle challenge. Steve won the competition by the barest of margins. When it came to the final HOH, Steve won by answering one more of the juror questions correctly than Vanessa. Then Steve did what he had to do. He evicted Vanessa. Boy! Vanessa was not happy, and she showed it by giving her vote to Liz. Fortunately, everyone else beside Julia and Austin voted for Steve, and he won Big Brother.
We did get to see some video of the jury debating the merits of the final three, and they were led through the questions by Dr. Will. They were quite an argumentative bunch, and Austin was particularly against Vanessa. Johnny Mac commented on how Steve didn't have any strategy other than listening to to what Johnny Mac and Vanessa.
The shocking bit was that James won America's Favorite Player. I think that I have to agree that the vote was rigged. There's no way James had more fans than Johnny Mac, but for some reason, CBS seemed to have a hard on for James to win. That's it for this season. I cannot wait for next year's Big Brother. If you want, you can check out the house guest's exit videos.

Finale TonightI won't be near my laptop tonight when the finale is on. I'll update this page tomorrow, but I'll be watching to see who wins. I am hoping for Steve, who should take Liz. If that happens, it will be tons of action and drama!

Clip ShowI was really disappointed in the BB show from last night. It was just a clip show. Clip shows are a huge waste of time. There were only a few seconds of the start of the first HOH that Vanessa won. Boy, what a rip off!

BB DelayedBig Brother is delayed tonight, so I won't be able to recap it until tomorrow. Vanessa won the first HOH in a swinging competition. Steve fell off first, and Vanessa talked Liz into dropping. Then Steve won the second because Liz wasn't very bright. It sounded like she was taking so long that BB gave her a clue to get her going. I think they must have known she already lost to Steve. Anyway, the show will recap Vanessa's win with some looks back over the season. More on it tomorrow.

Bye, Johnny MacWith Steve crying on the live feeds about how he threw the POV competition to the Vanessa, things are looking grim for Johnny Mac. I'm afraid that he will be going to the jury house tonight. Steve being an idiot will give the $500,000 to Vanessa.
Vanessa said that sending Austin out was the hardest thing she did in the house because Austin was going to beat her. Vanessa keeps on crying to Liz about how hard it was, and doesn't Liz understand. We see video of how Steve, Johnny Mac, and Vanessa knew 7 minutes before the eviction that Austin was going. Steve still claims that he meant to write down 6001. Yeah, right, he can't do math. Liz is livid because Steve did not go home, and now Steve is wearing the HOH key. Liz says that she has to win the competitions for Austin and Julia. Liz asks to talk to Vanessa, and Vanessa claims it was the most gut wrenching thing that she did. Vanessa keeps on crying because she wants Liz to realize how awful this is for Vanessa. Liz says she has to work with Vanessa because it's all she has, regardless of how much it sickens Liz.
Meanwhile Vanessa makes a final two with both Johnny Mac and Liz. Johnny Mac takes it because he realizes it's his only way. At nominations, Steve puts up Johnny Mac and Vanessa. Steve claims the nominations are purely strategic. Liz realizes that even though she is not on the block, she can go up. Then we have soem clip of Steve claiming how Vanessa can't win POV because he can't beat her in the final two. Idiot! Then why did you throw it to her???
Another jury clip. Julia comes into the house. Meg can't understand how they voted out Julia instead of Liz. The other jurors are shocked that Julia picked Austin in the bowling competition. Then Austin comes into the house in his bare feet. Shelli tries to saw that Vanessa played an amazing game. So far, only Shelli seems to be pro-Vanessa. Austin says he will do all he an to sabotage Vanessa's chances.
Then Rachel and Brendon came on the show. There was soem game talk, then Rachel announced that she was pregnant.
Time for the POV competition. It's hosted by Caleb from BB16. The POV was over several matches. Caleb will read a question, and they have to guess the day it happened. They have to karate chop a mannequin to set the number. Round one is day 38 when Clay won his only competition. Liz rang in last, and has one strike against her. They get two strikes. It was Shelli's tournament challenge. Liz was last again, and she's out of the competition. Then it was a Zingbot question for day 66. Johnny Mac got in first with the correct answer. Steve has one strike against him. Next round, it's when Meg goes on the block the second time. It was day 23, and no on e seemed to be able to figure it out. Steve says he can't figure it out, and Steve is eliminated from the tournament. Steve claims in DR that he felt too comfortable as HOH.
After the commercial break, we get the last rounds. It was the day that Frankie Grande enter the house. Vanessa got in first with 86. Day of the sixth nomination ceremony. It was day 44, and Vanessa got it first. Johnny Mac won the POV. She's made up with Liz, and Johnny Mac is her buddy. Johnny Mac realizes that his fate is in Vanessa's hands.
Time for the veto meeting. Vanessa says that she will use the veto on herself. Liz joins Johnny Mac on the block. Johnny Mac says it's been an awesome summer. Johnny Mac says basically that he won't beg. Liz says that she understands that Vanessa has to do what is best for her game. Johnny Mac is evicted. Johnny Mac gets a loud cheer. Steve thinks that Johnny Mac is a twist.
Julie asks Johnny Mac about the final two with Vanessa. Johnny Mac said he would not have honored the final two with Vanessa and would have evicted her. Johnny Mac said that he probably should have evicted Steve because then Vanessa would have had to go for the shomance. Johnny Mac also isn't worried about Austin and the blindside repercussions. The show ends without the first HOH starting. It will be played out on Sunday.
Wednesday, September 16, 2015 -- Morning
Blindside!I did not get home until late last night, so I missed the show. Thank goodness for Twitter and the CBS app. I got to find out who went to jury and who won HOH, and now I get to watch it!
It's hilarious how in the recap of the last episode, BB refers to Austin's twister alter ego, Judas. Barf! The show started with the house guests not knowing that they were going to have an eviction. Julie told them all to gather and sit in the side couches. Everyone seemed shocked at the news that there would be an eviction and HOH competition. Back to the time before the POV, and Steve is upset that he and Johnny Mac are on the block because Vanessa is siding with Austin and Liz. Vanessa claims she was doing it because Johnny Mac will get taken to the final three because he's the only one who hasn't won an HOH. Meanwhile Johnny Mac talked to Liz and Austin about how Johnny Mac feels that he is out of the loop. Johnny Mac threatens to throw the veto to them so he can build trust. Johnny Mac says he is okay with going out fifth or third. Austin calls over Vanessa and tells her what Johnny Mac said. Vanessa was happy to hear this because she was going to use it against Johnny Mac.
The POV competition starts with a promo for a new CBS comedy show. The competition has the house guests taking puzzle pieces over a balance beam to put puzzle pieces on a magnetized board. They have 20 seconds to do it before the board demagnetizes. The house guest has to hit the buzzer to keep the board magnetized. If you fall off the balance beam, you have to start from the beginning. Vanessa was eliminated because she didn't keep track of the time. Johnny Mac is putting the puzzle together in the trough so he doesn't have to worry about running back for the buzzer. Johnny Mac thought Liz was doing well, but she has several pieces missing. Then Johnny Mac sees that Steve is close, so he completes his puzzle to win the POV.
Johnny Mac talks to Austin and Liz about the possibilities with the vote. Steve is happy that Vanessa's plan failed because now Vanessa will have to break up the showmance. Vanessa is upset because she wanted to send Johnny Mac to jury, and she tells Austin there are no words for her displeasure. At the veto meeting, Johnny Mac takes himself off the block, and Austin goes up in his place. Austin is okay with it because he feels that he is safe, and he thinks this is a way to show Vanessa that he trusts her. Johnny Mac realizes that his option is to vote Steve out or leave it up to Vanessa. Vanessa asks is they would be the dumbest if they didn't break up the showmance. Johnny Mac shakes hands on a final three with Vanessa and wonders if voting Austin out is the best move for him.
Steve and Austin gave their speeches, with Austin saying he would be on a TV show. Time for the vote.
- Liz evicts Steve
- Johnny Mac evicts Austin
Time for the HOH competition, where Julie shows clips of the former house guests with words beeped out. Johnny Mac, Liz, and Steve have to guess if the bleeped word that Julie gives is true or false. They all get the first one right, and the second. Steve gets the third one right. They all get the fourth one right. Johnny Mac gets the fifth one right. Johnny Mac and Steve are tied. They all get the sixth one wrong so no one got a point. Steve and Johnny Mac get the last question right. It's down to a tie break between Steve and Johnny Mac. The person who is closest without going over wins, unless both go over, then it is still the one who is closer. The question is time in seconds from start of Vanessa's HOH win to the buzzer. Steve says 601, Johnny Mac says 3600. The correct answer ws 2825 seconds. Steve is the HOH. Steve admits to the others that he was going to say 6000, but he forgot a zero. And there goes Johnny Mac, probably next to jury.

Frankie Returns? Yuck!!!I missed yesterday's episode because it was Rosh Hashannah, and unfortunately, I'm going to miss Tuesday evening's episode because I'll be teaching my usual Tuesday evening class. I'll play catch up on Tuesday's all important show on Wednesday. We should find out then who goes to jury (Steve or Austin) and who is the final four HOH. This will be especially important since the feeds are down now for the next 36 hours. For now, this is a recap of Sunday's episode.
It seems the luxury trip was a "trip of a lifetime!" Really it wasn't. It was a trip lead by Frankie Grande to see his infantile-acting sister, Ariana, perform. I'd rather be stuck with pins and needles! Anyway, on with the show, which started with the HOH competition. Liz dropped a few, and the eggs were real eggs painted in gold. Liz wants to get revenge on "sneaky" Steve. Steve is hoping that Vanessa or Johnny Mac wins. Austin got the first egg. Johnny Mac was second, and he wanted to get some blood on his hands and make a big move. Austin seemed to be cruising and had two eggs in quickly. Then Vanessa got her second egg, quickly followed by Johnny Mac. We then see several clips of Liz dropping her eggs. Vanessa took the lead with her fourth egg. It seems they put a lot of strain on their shoulders because their arms were above their heads. Vanessa was in the lead, followed closely by Johnny Mac. Liz was struggling, so she opted for Austin and went for the luxury prize. Vanessa had eight eggs when she dropped an egg, but Austin was also dropped an egg. Vanessa thought she has to win to keep herself safe. It was back and back between Johnny Mac and Vanessa, but Vanessa just beat out Johnny Mac. Vanessa now has to choose a side. Steve thinks he is safe for the week. Liz doesn't know what Vanessa will do. Even Johnny Mac felt good because he thinks Vanessa will take out the showmance. Liz is crying in one of the bedrooms, and Steve gives her a hug.
Vanessa's goal is to find out who has been lying to her. As Austin says, Vanessa is looking for an excuse to put someone up. Basically, Liz wants a justification to put up Steve and Johnny Mac. Steve tells Vanessa that he made a deal with Liz to save him if he went on the block. Vanessa then talks to Austin about how Liz gave her word to Vanessa and Steve to not vote against him. Vanessa doesn't seem to understand that people have to say what they say to others just to keep themselves safe when someone is HOH. Vanessa is a piece of work. Vanessa then went to Johnny Mac. Johnny Mac tells Vanessa that he made a deal with Austin just as Vanessa told him to hide Vanessa and Johnny Mac's alliance. BB showed Vanessa telling Johnny Mac to do it, so when Vanessa watches the show, she should see how psycho Vanessa is. I like how Liz started to cry when Vanessa was grilling her. Then Steve heard that Austin, LIz, and Vanessa were in the storage room talking, and he didn't want to go up. Vanessa starts grilling Austin about Johnny Mac. All this Vanessa paranoia is irritating and making me want to smack her.
Vanessa tells Steve that she has to get rid of Johnny Mac because she stands a better chance with the showmance in making it to final two. Vanessa really isn't bright. Vanessa thinks that if she shakes hands with Austin that everything is good. Vanessa wants Austin to vote the way she wants. Vanessa doesn't want Austin to win the veto. Then Austin has to win the HOH. If Austin doesn't, Vanessa will be pissed. What a piece of work she is! Austin swears on his love for Liz and his family name that he will take Vanessa to final two. All righty then!
Then it's time for the Luxury Reward. The door bell rings and that freak known as Frankie Grande enterst eh house. I want to barf! Steve for some reason thinks its really cool. Liz gets to go to the Ariana Grande concert from a private suite. Liz gets to choose another house guest. Austin points to Vanessa, and Liz takes her. Frankie has a hair and makeup team who make up Vanessa and Liz so no one recognizes them. BB gave us a huge Ariana Grande love fest. I have no interest in promoting them more.
Johnny Mac goes to talk to Vanessa, and Vanessa says that she thinks that she has two showmances. In DR, Johnny Mac says that as far as I know, I never made out with Steve. Johnny Mac tells her to just put him up if that is what she wants. He hopes telling her that will make her head explode. Time for the nomination ceremony, and Vanessa puts up Steve and Johnny Mac. Vanessa says that she adores Steve, and it isn't personal. Vanessa says that Johnny Mac won some competitions, and he finished second in several. So he's up. Vanessa just hopes that she doesn't have to put up Austin or Liz. Johnny Mac says that he has to win the veto or get evicted. Fortunately, he does!
Saturday, September 12, 2015 -- Evening
Whew, Johnny Mac!The feeds were down most of yesterday, and I thought it was because they were doing nominations and POV. A lot of people might have thought that too, but it turns out that so Liz could have her luxury trip outside of the house. It sounds as if Vanessa went with her. Nominations were Steve and Johnny Mac, and the POV was held early this evening. I breathed a sigh of relief when I heard that Johnny Mac did not throw the POV competition as he talked about with Austin and Liz. Instead, he WON the POV. So that means that Johnny Mac is safe! The question is who will Vanessa put up, and who will go to jury on Tuesday.
Friday, September 11, 2015 -- Afternoon
Who Knows What's in Store?So I missed watching the show yesterday, but I caught up on the live feeds. Vanessa won HOH. She just beat out Johnny Mac. It seems she may be putting up Steve and Johnny Mac, or maybe not. It's really unclear, and the feeds went down for 14 hours while things play out today. So we won't know what happens until tomorrow. Then there will be a taped eviction on Tuesday, a live eviction on Wednesday, and then the show ends the following Wednesday. It could be interesting!
But on to yesterday's show! The twins thought it sucked that oen was going home. Steve apologized to Julia, but they had to be split up. it just makes sense. Austin is conflicted and felt sorry for Liz. Vanessa explains to Steve that the twins survived seven eviction. Johnny Mac feels great. The twins are crying because they never thought that one of them would leave. Liz tells Julia that it's Julia's time to shine. Liz would fight if it were Austin next to her. Liz says she would never say one bad thing about her twin, which is why they have to be split up.
Vanessa and Johnny Mac talk about the twins. Vanessa says that it makes sense to get rid of Julia, but she knows that Austin wants to keep Liz. So Austin and LIz hatch up a plan to put Vanessa on the hot seat by telling Vanessa that she has to vote to evict Julia. Austin and Liz explain to Julia that Liz is a lynch pni. Julia tells Liz to stay because she knows Liz has a better chance to win than Julia. Austin says he is going to talk to Vanessa about keeping Liz. Somehow voting out a twin came down to the twins decision as opposed to those who remain in the house. Vanessa asks Liz if she wants to stay, but that it will be tough to go against Steve. So Vanessa makes a deal going into final five. Vanessa wants to know that Steve and Johnny Mac go up, and if Vanessa goes up in replacement of them, Vanessa stays. Then they have to keep Vanessa through final four, and take Vanessa to final two. Liz says in DR that she is just nodding her head as she talks and has no plans of keeping her promise. Then Vanessa goes over the options of keeping Julia over Liz. But the concern with Julia everyone taking Julia to the end because it's an easy win.
Everyone is dressed for endurance. Johnny Mac says his friends and family are probably saying that Johnny Mac is really doing everything stupid. They got to see clips from their family. Johnny Mac sees his family first. Then Austin sees his family. Vanessa sees her girlfriend. Liz and Julia see her older sister and dad. The sister looks like the twins. Finally, it's Steve's mom, and he cries. Steve and Vanessa talk about how hard it is to be away from family.
Then we got some jury room video. Meg is first to the house. Then James sneaks in. You can tell that the jurors are losers because as they watch James in POV, they say that at least he looks good in his shorts. Shelli is rooting for Johnny Mac, but Vanessa is running the house, and she deserves the win.
It's time for the live vote. Liz goes first and just talks about how much she learned about Julia. Liz says that no man will come between her bond with the sister. Julia talks about how she and Liz have gone through everything together. Time for the live vote.
- Austin evicts Julia
- Vanessa evicts Julia
- John evicts Julia
Time for the HOH competition, which was the house guest in a cage moving eggs on the other side of the cage from one spot to another. This time, they have to go over the top of the cage. The first to get 10 eggs done win. The first house guest to get the luxury prize (put the egg in the luxury) holder for it, wins a special trip outside of the house. They compete until both the HOH and luxury prize are won.
The schedule for the upcoming shows: the Sunday show is the same, then evictions on Tuesday and Wednesday. That leaves the final three for the final night. Meanwhile back at the house, Austin is the first to get an egg in a holder.
Thursday, September 10, 2015 -- Afternoon
POV CeremonyI have been sick with a sore throat and cold and really busy at work, so I wasn't able to watch last night's show. Since I feel so crappy now, I don't know if I will make it to the tonight's episode. I might have to comment on it tomorrow, especially how the Austwins have flipped the vote to have Julia voted out. But on to last night's show.
The show started after nominations with Liz crying. She though Steve was her friend. Austin doesn't know what to do because he has to choose between Liz and the game. Julie and Austin try to comfort Liz, and Liz asks Austin not to leave her alone.What did they really expect? Then Steve goes to talk to Austin. As Steve says, he tries to avoid confrontation. As Steve says in DR, Austin and Liz are his targets. The Austwins talk about putting up Vanessa if Julie wins POV and takes Liz off. Julie says that she's after Steve now.
Time for the veto competition. Steve comments on how it is the same veto comp of bowling, Bowlerina, that split up Amanda and McCrae in season 15. All the house guests are in tutus, and surprise, Jesse, Mr. Pectacular, is the Master of Ceremonies. They have to spin around to get the gate that blocks the pins to come up so they can knock down the four pins. Liz is first to bowl, and she picks Steve as her competitor. They have to spin 15 times to get 15 seconds of bowling time. They have to re-spin to knock down the remaining pins if the gate comes down. Steve is really unable to handle the dizziness from spinning. It was down to one pin each, and Liz was the first to get hers down. Then it was up to Julie, Vanessa tells Julia to take Austin, and as Johnny Mac sits between them, he is shocked that Julia did that. So Julia picks Austin, and Austin wonders if he is the target. Even Jesse is shocked at Julia's stupidity. Vanessa explains to Liz that it makes the most sense because you want Julia to win not Austin because if Austin wins, Julia goes up. Austin is now determined to win the comp. Liz of course yells for both Julia and Austin. Austin won the round. Even Steve asked Julia why she picked Austin. Then Vanessa tries to explain why Austin made sense. Johnny Mac is next, and he picks Liz. Johnny Mac's strategy is to spin slower so he is not as dizzy, and he wins his round. Vanessa is up. Vanessa chooses Austin. Austin is an enraged gorilla as Johnny Mac says, and he wins the round. It's down to Johnny Mac and Austin. They shake hands. Austin is hoping Johnny Mac will throw it to him. Johnny Mac Is cool with it, and Austin wins. Austin says Judas is here now, and carries on like a silly jerk.
Liz did not like how Austin acted. Vanessa realizes that she has to do some major damage control. Jessie rips open his shirt to show his chest, and then everyone goes inside (except for Jessie, of course).
Austin goes around acting like a psycho, trying to ask like he's Judas. Liz asked Julia why she picked Austin. Julia says that Vanessa kept on telling her that if Julia did not pick Austin, Julia would go on the block. Vanessa keeps on trying to say that it was Austin's fault because he wasn't going to throw the comp. Liz tries to explain to Vanessa that it was a stupid move. Vanessa knew that it was. Vanessa cries and Liz comforts her. Vanessa goes on with hoe Austin can't win with the three. Vanessa tells the twins that Austin knows more about Austin not throwing the comp. Vanessa asks Julia why Austin didn't throw the comp to her. Those twins aren't very smart.
Austin goes to talk to Liz because he can't understand why Liz has listened to Vanessa. Austin said that he tried everything to save all three of them, but that they just sealed their fate. Liz starts crying and says that she is so over it, and that she is going to leave with her head high. Liz goes to talk to Vanessa and Julia. Liz thought Austin would use the POV on her. As Liz says, Austin is no Clay, and she is out of love with Austin.
Up in the HOH room, Johnny Mac explains to Steve about what happened. Johnny Mac says that they shouldn't have to worry about a Vanessa/Austin final two. Austin tries to talk to Vanessa, Liz, and Julia about how he is no Clay and no one respected Clay. Austin calls over Vanessa to talk to her. Vanessa admits that she knew she would go up against Austin. Austin says that he is going to the agent that splits up the twins, and Vanessa says that he shouldn't use the veto. Austin tries to talk to Liz, and Liz tells him that his reaction turned her off and said a lot about Austin. Austin tells Liz that he ruined his life by dumping his other girlfriend for Liz. Liz says Austin disgusts her. The only think that made Liz laugh was Julia throwing Austin's shit away from the bed, and Julia saying how disgusting Austin was.
Finally late at night, Liz goes to Austin, and they make up. Time for the POV meeting, and Austin takes himself off the block. Steve says he hates being the bad guy. Julia goes up.
Sunday, September 6, 2015 -- Early Evening
BB Show No UpdateI won't be able to watch the BB show tonight, and probably not tomorrow, so I'm not sure if I'll be posting an update. I already posted who won HOH and POV and who the nominations are. I'll see if I can get an update some other time.
Saturday, September 5, 2015 -- Evening
ShockerSurprisingly, Steve won HOH late Thursday/early Friday. He did an extremely smart thing, and he put up Liz and Austin. They had the POV early today; it's usually late on Saturday's. Well, Austin won the POV. So that means that he comes off; Julia goes up; and Liz goes to jury. At least, I think that's what will happen. All I know is that Liz is not very happy. Vanessa is crying, as if this is something that is awful for her. Boo-hoo!
Thursday, September 3, 2015 -- Evening
Double EvictionUnfortunately, football is on the local CBS station, but they are showing Big Brother on another station at the usual time. That's good news because I can watch, but I won't be able to get screenshots since I use the CBS app to capture those. The house guests got to practice on for the HOH yesterday afternoon, but they didn't seem to figure out that a double eviction was on the way.
The show started with the note that the show would be done in less than three weeks. Then we saw some post POV footage. Meg is not happy that it was Julia that went up. Meanwhile Johnny Mac is happy to not be on the block. James thinks that everyone should realize that it's a great time to break up the Austwins. Vanessa feels good because Austin and LIz will keep Julia, and Steve will do what Vanessa wants. James tries to tell Meg that Steve and Johnny Mac may see it as an opportunity to get out a twin. Johnny Mac and Vanessa were talking. Johnny Mac says that too many people like him in the jury. Vanessa says she has the opposite problem. Both agree that they are really close, and even Steve doesn't realize it. Later James tries to give Johnny Mac the numbers vote. Johnny Mac is conflicted because voting out Julia is a good thing for him, but Vanessa wants Meg out. Johnny Mac tried to talk Steve into voting out Julia. The things is that Steve doesn't go for it. Steve realizes that it could be the time to break up the Austwins. Steve tries to explain to Vanessa that the final five can't have the Austwins dominating. Steve needs to realize that he needs to do what is good for his game, not Vanessa's.
The house guests are shocked at the news that it was double eviction, because they thought it would happen next week. Time for the final speeches. Meg gives a lame speech that doesn't say "get rid of the Austwins." Julia gave a rambling speech about coming in on the twin twist. Time for the vote:
- Liz evicts Meg
- James evicts Julia
- Steve evicts Meg
- Johnny Mac evicts Meg
- Austin evicts Meg
It's a question game HOH. They are going to view pairs of photos of the first six house guests on a road trip. They will be asked questions, and have to get it right. The first question is false, and all get it right. Second question is false, and James and Steve are out. They are shown more photos. The answer was true, and only the twins got it right. Both get the next question right. Both get question five right, and both get the sixth question right. Liz got the last question right.
This time, there was plotting. Time for the nomination. Liz puts up James and Johnny Mac. they had a POV pick, and only Vanessa isn't competing. The practice yesterday afternoon will be used. They have to roll the ball on a boomerang shaped board. They get two shots, and get the cumulative score. Steve is first and gets 0. Johnny Mac gets 0. Austin gets 6 and 9 for 15. Liz gets 15 and 0, but she ties Austin. Julia gets 13 and 4 for a total of 17. Julia is in the lead. Now it's time for James. His first shot is 0, and so is his second. Julia has the POV.
James pleads his case, and says he appreciates their friendship and not make it personal. Johnny Mac just says to use the veto. Julia did not use the veto. Commercial break, then we had the statements. James says to keep him, and he will still want to be their friend. Johnny Mac said that he didn't have anything funny to say.
- Austin evicts James--he says for Jace
- Julia evicts James
- Vanessa evicts James
- Steve evicts James--Steve looks physically ill and nervous
Wednesday, September 2, 2015 -- Evening
Big Brother DramaJulia is on the block, but everyone is still targeting Meg. These people are really stupid to avoid the twins. Austin is disgusting, and he thinks that he's a huge fan favorite. He also thinks we all love him and Liz. Blah!
Tonight's show started with the fall out from the nomination ceremony. Meg cries in the have not room. It's not that she played the game. I guess she figured she didn't have to. James suggests that he and Meg hash things out with Vanessa. Vanessa gives them some drivel about being at the bottom of everyone's list. Vanessa says that Meg and James are a power duo (huh?) and that Vanessa has never had anyone to support her like they have each other. Meg tells James he has to win the POV.
Steve talks with Vanessa. Vanessa claims that she can't get rid of the Austwins now because they are so powerful. Time to pick for the POV. Vanessa picks Julia. James picks Liz, and Meg picks Austin. What a crappy pick for Meg and James. Vanessa hopes this increases her chances that the nominations will stay the same. James thinks the veto will be physical. Then James pretends to be Audrey to make Meg laugh.
James tells the story of knocking up some girl, which resulted in his daughter. The competition is a hidden veto card. The player will have three minutes to hid their veto card in the house while the others wait outside. Then one at a time, they get two minutes to find someone's veto. James hides his veto under the living room carpet. Everyone thinks they have a good hiding place. Meg s first to look for a veto. Meg came back empty handed. Austin just destroyed everything. Austin didn't find a veto. Everyone just seemed determined to destroy the house. James and Julia didn't find anything. Neither did Liz. Vanessa found a veto card (one of the twins). Julia found Vanessa's card. Meg finds the other twin's veto card. James realizes his card has not been found, and he puts more stuff over the couch where his veto is under the carpet. The whole destruction of the houes was just disgusting.
Finally all the veto cards are found. The first card found by Vanessa eliminated Liz. Julia found the second card and eliminated Vanessa. Meg found Julia's card. James eliminated Meg. The last card, that Vanessa found, is Austin's. When the house guests go back into the house, it's a mess. Vanessa goes upstairs, and cries that she was near James' veto. Of course, Vanessa didn't help with the cleaning. Neither did the Austwins.
Julia goes up to Vanessa and wants to know if Vanessa is going to put up John or Steve. Vanessa says that it would be stupid for her to put up John because the twins want Johnny Mac out while Vanessa wants Meg out.
James tells Austin that he will put up Vanessa if he wins HOH. Austin tells Vanessa. Vanessa cries to Liz. Austin is just right behind Liz. Vanessa tells the Austwins that the only feasible option is for Julia to go up. Julia says that everyone wants to break up the threesome. Vanessa thinks that only Liz and Austin would be targeted. Liz tries to talk Vanessa into putting up Johnny Mac. But Vanessa has a side deal with Johnny Mac. Vanessa tells them all that Meg will float to the finals. The Austwins really put on the pressure to put up Johhny Mac. James goes to talk to Vanessa, and Vanessa says she's not in a good mood. Vanessa tells James that this is a game, and she thought James would understand that. James says that Vanessa plays too hard. Vanessa starts arguing with James because she is insulted by the "too hard" comment. Vanessa is a bitch.
Time for the veto ceremony, and James used it. Vanessa put up Julia. Unfortunately, these people are too stupid to vote out one of the Austwins.
Sunday, August 30, 2015 -- Evening
Recap of Sunday ShowSo far, from the live feeds, it seems that Julia might be going up in place of James on Monday. We have to see if that is the case, AND if the others have the balls to vote her out.
Tonight's show started with the lame HOH competition. Shelli says that it's the most important of the game, and Shelli thought she would go from the jury house to the head of the Big Brother house. All the returning jurors want the HOH. The house guests can bend down, but they have to keep one foot on the disk. So far, it seems like the recap is taking longer than the actual competition. Julia was the first out. Shelli complained of the speed of the spin. We get lots of comments on people wanting to win. Steve and Meg were down quickly. James said that he has to win now for him and Meg. James seemed to be having real issues hanging on. The jurors seem to be the only ones holding on. Vanessa seemed to be really good at this game. Liz was struggling, then she fell off. It was down to the four jurors and Vanessa. Jackie was the first juror off. Jackie had to quickly walk off. Vanessa finally realized it was just her and the jurors. Becky is the next off. Shelli was out, and John was back in the game. Johnny Mac realized that he had to win to not be out of the house again.
Vanessa tells Johnny Mac that she wants to hear from Mel, her girlfriend. Johnny Mac admits that he has made an alliance with Vanessa, but doesn't want the others to know. Johnny Mac finally falls off. Johnny Mac realizes that Vanessa will be loyal to him, even though she is a liar because she is lowest on the Austwins totem pole. Johnny Mac tells everyone that he is back. Meanwhile the Austwins are upset because Johnny Mac is back. The twins think anyone other than Johnny Mac would have been nice. Then we see Vanessa telling the camera how happy she is. Blah!
James and Meg hope that Vanessa will see that Austin and the twins are a bigger problem. Godo luck with that! Steve and Johnny Mac talk how good it is to be back, and Johnny Mac says he is going to act mopey. Vanessa comes in and asks Johnny Mac about throwing the comp. He explains that he could not do it openly. They hug. Then Austin claims that Johnny Mac said in the comp that he was going after the Austwins. He didn't. Then Steve comes in, and we find out that they made amends before the eviction.
Then we have a stupid segment on Gramdma Meg. Meg is a 25 year old loser. Sad. Then it's time for the HOH room reveal.
Vanessa talks with Austin, and Vanessa says that she doesn't want to go after Johnny Mac because it's not good for her game. Vanessa feels that it would be better to go after James. Vanessa says she wants to go after James because of the conversation she had with James earlier in the morning of eviction day. Vanessa says that Meg and James will go after the twins. So now Liz is up with Vanessa's plan, and they are going after Meg and James.
Liz and Austin have a diner in the HOH room, and Austin asks Liz if she will be his girlfriend, and she says yes. Liz feels like she is on cloud nine as Austin's girlfriend. Liz says that Austin better break up with his existing girlfriend. Yeah, good luck! She's already over him.
Next up is Julia trying to prank and scaring Austin. Lame!
Meg and James go up to talk with Vanessa. Vanessa wants to hear something against Austin. Vanessa asks them if they have any information that will help her, and James and Meg say nothing. Then Meg tries to act stupid about not knowing that anything was going on last week. Meg tries to act like she wasn't a part of any scheme. Vanessa asks James and Meg about being pawns. James volunteers to go up. Then Meg says to pur her up before James and starts to cry. Meg says that she is more likely to stay than James. Vanessa says that this is a warning sign against them. James won't say anything to give Vanessa ammo against the Austwins while saying they would go against the Austwins next week. James thinks the Austwins are bigger targets. James doesn't think that Vanessa would put them up. James says that Vanessa has to realize that they are underdogs with her.
James remembers the deal that Vanessa made with him about not putting him up if he didn't put her up. James said that she promised him and one other person safety if he didn't put her up. James thinks that they will be fine if they make it through this week. At the nomination ceremony, Vanessa puts up Meg then James. Vanessa says that it's a game move or chess move. Vanessa uses the line she practiced with the Austwins, to get to the king, you have to put the queen up. James regrets not telling Vanessa about the deal she made weeks earlier.

Yawn!So the endurance competition was a bust. Before I could get to the live feeds, the competition was over. Vanessa won with Johnny Mac second. Johnny Mac threw the competition to Vanessa for loyalty, since he is back in the house. Vanessa put up Meg and James. James just won the POV, so the Austwins are trying to convince Vanessa to put up Johnny Mac. I hope that she puts one of them up, but Vanessa is weak. They are all weak.
Thursday, August 27, 2015 -- Morning
BB Recap of Wednesday's showI haven't been able to catch the Wednesday show on it's air date, but fortunately, I was able to watch it today. The house has been bobbing back and forth between Johnny Mac and Steve, but as of Thursday morning, it looks like Johnny Mac is going to the jury house.
The show started right after the nomination ceremony. Austin put up Steve and Johnny Mac because he thought they were the least risk for his game. Steve is upset that Austin went back on the alliance, but as a superfan, he has to appreciate the brillance of Vanessa's game. Johnny Mac and Steve talk about the nominations, and that they feel they have to win the veto. Meanwhile in the HOH house, Vanessa says that she will be loyal. Austin is a huge pussy, so he says that Vanessa is safe because it's not in his best interests. Steve goes up to HOH, and when Austin says that he wants to say publicly that Steve will not go. Steve questions that. Steve questions Austin about his choice. Austin says it will be tough if Steve comes off the block because he will have to put up Vanessa. That shows Austin's alliance, and Steve is stupid to trust him.
Then we get another James scaring Julia. Yawn! It's really stupid. Then we get to pick players for the veto. Steve wants Meg and Julia to play because they are weak players. Austin doesn't want Steve or Johnny Mac to win. Austin picks Vanessa. Johnny Mac says he is hoping for Meg or Julia because they are weak and brainless. Steve picks Julia.
Steve wants to rebuild the relationship with Vanessa. When Liz and Austin talk, Liz says that Steve and Johnny Mac need to be separated. Austin wants to put up Vanessa. However, Liz is adamant that Johnny Mac should be the target, and she is concerned about Austin not knowing what he wants to do. Julia comes in and asks if she wins the POV if she should use it. Austin just says to win it.
Zingbot comes into the house. Zingbot claims he had an upgrade, and he's on Twitter. James gets zinged on Meg just being a friend. James turns bright red. Liz is zinged on being less intelligent, attractive, etc, but then says wait, it's Julia. Julia claims they got the same SAT scores. Steve gets zinged on playing trombone. Boring! Austin is zinged on smelling. Meg is zinged for sucking at the game. Johnny Mac is zinged on his back hair. Yawn! I could fall asleep with this lame zings. Vanessa is zinged on playing a masterful game and gets called out on crying. Finally it's time for Liz. She is zinged on Austin having a girlfriend. I think it really sucks that Liz is zinged on the girlfriend, when it should have been Austin. Zingbot is a sexist pig! He zinged Christine last year, but not Austin this year. As Liz says, she's single, so she is okay. Liz quizzes Austin on this, and says that his chasing after his girlfriend is disgusting.
James and Liz have to sit inside together and watch while the others compete. It is one of those competitions where they compete alone to identify the three house guests that make up a picture. The person who gets all six right in the shortest time wins the POV. Julia can't guess that it's Meg's nose in the picture. Julia is done in 4:45.7. Steve thinks he can beat the time, but doesn't know if he wants to risk it. Steve opts for slow and steady. Steve has 45 seconds, and he does not finish in time. Julia is still in the lead. Steve is hoping that Austin is right that he is still a pawn. Steve joins the others watching the competition. Austin goes out because he gets stuck on Meg's nose. Austin says he kept pressing Liz's name because he wanted to. Vanessa is up next, and she is really good at it. Probably comes from being a poker player. Vanessa finishes in 2:51.5. Johnny Mac wants to win because he is afraid that he might be the target. Johnny Mac is out. Now it's down to stupid Meg. Johnny Mac is crushed because Vanessa has the POV. Meg wants to win. Meg can't figure out it is her nose, and she's sure it's a boy's nose. Vanessa was very happy to win POV because she won when she needed to. Johnny Mac hopes there is something he can do, but he's sure that he is headed to jury next.
Back in the BB house, Vanessa and Johnny Mac are eating breakfast. Vanessa asks Johnny Mac if he is over the thing with Becky and Clay. Johnny Mac tells her that he is alone, and that he is probably going home. Johnny Mac tells Vanessa that they may be the biggest enemies in the house. Vanessa says they aren't enemies. Johnny Mac says that he will make a deal with the devil in DR. He offers to work together with Vanessa. Vanessa wants to use the veto on Johnny Mac, but has to see where Austin's head is. Vanessa says that it's stupid to keep Meg or James. Austin is afraid that Jackie will come up and bond with James. Austin is stupid because he only has five options. Austin tells Vanessa that he didn't want to put up Meg or James this week. Vanessa tells Johnny Mac that she can't use the veto because Austin will come after her. Johnny Mac tells Vanessa that the twins and Austin are after her. Johnny Mac tells her that he, Steve, and the Austwins were targeting Vanessa last week. Vanessa doesn't understand because heck, she's Vanessa.
Vanessa goes to Liz, and Liz tries to claim that Johnny Mac was lying. Then Liz throws Steve under the bus claiming it was Steve's idea because he was working with Johnny Mac. Vanessa thinks that Steve took her for a fool. Steve was making noise, and when Vanessa got rude with him, he didn't realize the implications. Later, Vanessa goes to talk with Steve. Steve tells Vanessa that the five person alliance was after Steve. Steve says it was not his idea. Then Steve starts breathing heavily because Vanessa is pressuring him, or as some like to call it, bullying Steve. Vanessa cries and leaves poor Steve in tatters.
Time for the POV ceremony. Johnny Mac hopes Vanessa uses it, but knows it's bad for her game. Steve is nervous because Vanessa is upset. Vanessa feels so alone and betrayed, and thinks the only reason she is there is because she won POV. No, you are there because Austin is a huge wimp. Steve just congratulates Vanessa and says he respects her decision. Johnny Mac said that asking Vanessa to use the veto is like asking a gazelle to save a tiger. Vanessa picks on poor Steve in the veto meeting too before not using the veto. Steve is really confused.
Monday, August 24, 2015 -- Afternoon
Big Brother Show RecapThe show last night started with the HOH competition. The show all the stupid words that BB showed them before coming up with Go, like bro, fro, etc. Austin said that it might be in his best interests to throw it. Julia is off because she lifted her right hand from the button. They have a minute now before the next race. It seems Julia ran track and field in high school. Then in the next race, Vanessa's foot came off the button. Now it's down to the guys. This has to be the most annoying competition because BB kept on showing those stupid words. Austin with his long stride was first. Johnny Mac was last. There was controversy that Johnny Mac didn't hit the buzzer, but he did. BB showed his hand circled in red. He was the last in the heat. Steve admits that the only way he could win was if James or Austin false started, but Steve false starts by lifting his right hand. James has been playing mind games by pretending to do off the start. That threw Steve. Austin just beats James in their heat. Johnny Mac hopes that nothing weird happens with Austin as HOH. HA! Austin wonders if it will be Austin or Judas running the HOH. Rolling my eyes at that bit of stupidity.
Liz and Julia talk together about who Austin will put up. Austin and the twins do a lame celebration dance. Steve goes in to congratulate Austin. Steve feels good because he has two alliances with Austin. Austin says they are in the perfect spot, but that can be a problem. While they talk, Austin has a big lipstick mark on his face from LIz. As Austin admits, he has an alliance with everyone in the house. The question Austin has is while alliance he fractures. Austin is going to keep his alliance with James and Meg because he enjoys hanging out with them. James does not think Austin will trust Johnny Mac, Steve, or Vanessa (especially her). Steve and Johnny Mac talk about Meg and James going up. Johnny Mac also feel safe with Austin, as does Steve. Poor fools!
Then we see Vanessa talking to Austin. As Vanessa says, she has big plans for this week, and Austin claims that Vanessa will not be running the HOH. Austin tells the twins that he thinks that James and Meg are a duo, and that if he takes them out, then the twins will be exposed. Vanessa ruins the conversation by coming in and talking game. Vanessa tells Austin that Steve is very loyal to Johnny Mac. Vanessa claims that Steve and Johnny Mac have a final two, as told to Vanessa by Shelli and Clay.
Then Austin talks with Meg and James. Austin says that Johnny Mac would be least likely to get mad or come back. Meg again says that Vanessa is constantly trying to run things. Austin believes that Vanessa really is working for Austin, and that Vanessa is a real number for him. Meg says that Vanessa has 100 percent been getting what she wanted. Austin is a real weeny when it comes to make any sort of decision.
Vanessa goes up to talk with Austin, and he asks Vanessa what he should do. Austin claims that he made a deal with James for James and Meg during the final heat of the HOH race. Austin tells Vanessa, the twins, and Steve that the pawn to go up with Johnny Mac has to come from the room. Vanessa realizes that it means either her or Steve. Steve says that he doesn't want to be a pawn. Basically, pawns go home. Steve looks really uncomfortable, and Vanessa is putting the claws into Steve. Austin tells Steve that Vanessa is good. Steve tries to tell Austin that Vanessa wanted to put up Austin. Steve says to Austin that he does not have a final two with Johnny Mac, even though they get along and are working together. Steve says he really does not want to go up. Vanessa comes in, and she tries to tell Steve that he has to be a pawn because that proves his loyalty. Austin thinks it's funny because Vanessa doesn't want to be a pawn for the same reasons as Steve. Vanessa claims that she was the oen who tried to save Austin. Austin knows that James was supposed to throw the competition. Vanessa claims that she does not know that the BOB was thrown. Austin claims that he can't take any more. Austin throws everyone out, even though Vanessa tries to stay behind to talk to him. Vanessa leaves, and they all talk about how Vanessa lied about the plan to keep Liz on the block and backdoor Austin.
Back in the house, Liz and Austin are in the hammock. Liz claims that although she not like Austin at first, she does now, at 93 percent. She tells him that his ponytail beard is growing on her. Liz call him a pretty good kisser.
Steve goes to talk to Austin, and Austin claims that he is undecided. Austin says that Vanessa would freak out. Steve says that he does not want to go up with Johnny Mac. As Steve says, putting up Steve and Johnny Mac says that Austin is closer to James and Meg. Steve does not want to go up against Johnny Mac. Austin says that Steve is not understanding why Austin needs to put up him and Johnny Mac. Austin tells Steve that it won't be him against Johnny Mac. Liz tells Austin to put up Steve against Johnny Mac. Liz then goes and tells Vanessa about Steve not wanting to go up against Johnny Mac. So Vanessa goes running up to convince Austin to not put her up. Vanessa sais that Steve is closer to Johnny Mac than Vanessa, so Steve should go up on the block. Vanessa claims that she is willing to be a pawn, but this isn't the spot for it. Austin then asks Vanessa without the twins if Vanessa knew that James was throwing the competition with Liz. Vanessa finally admits that she did, and then she starts talking really fast. Because Vanessa came clean at the last minute, Austin now thinks things are okay with Vanessa.
Time for the nomination ceremony. Austin nominates Johnny Mac and Steve. Austin gives a really lame speech about how he was being screwed in week 5. Even though James and Vanessa were keys in that week 5, Steve and Johnny Mac who did not have a hand in it at all, are on the block. Steve is in awe at Vanessa's game in getting out of a nomination. Johnny Mac realizes that he has to win POV. Vanessa is happy that she is not targeted, Meanwhile, James and Meg continue floating along.
Sunday, August 23, 2015 -- Afternoon
Vanessa Makes it Another WeekI don't know if I will make it to watch tonight's episode because I have a killer migraine. As a quick recap, Austin, James, Steve, and Johnny Mac were the last in the race for HOH. Johnny Mac was out first, then Steve. It caem down to James and Austin, and Austin won HOH. He told everyone in the house that he was going to target or backdoor Vanessa, but then Austin and Liz talked privately about keeping Vanessa. Johnny Mac and Steve went on the block, with the target on Johnny Mac. Unfortunately, Vanessa got to play in POV, and she won. Now, I'm not sure if the target will fall on Steve or Johnny Mac because Vanessa is busy pulling the wool over stupid Austin's eyes. So that's the action so far.
Thursday, August 20, 2015 -- Evening
Another Endurance!Yep, you read the heading right. There's another endurance competition tonight. So far, I have really been loving this season, and I'm sure tonight will make it even better!
I couldn't wait for the show to start tonight because I can't wait to see who the new HOH will be, and we get to see the action in the jury house. The show started with the post veto ceremony action. Liz didn't want to target Vanessa because she wanted to let someone else do that. Vanessa is relieved. Vanessa thinks Becky is a better target because she's a better competitor. Becky is confident in her people skills too. Austin and Liz are talking about Becky's speech when Steve walks in and says that people put too much thought into these speeches, because Becky commented on how Liz, Julia, and Austin weren't on the block last week. Johnny Mac is talking to Becky, but he feels confident with his dead fish strategy of not doing anything until the ceremony.
Then we saw a segment on James and Meg being friends. James said that it's only him and Meg left from the group they made at the beginning. James thinks Meg has a crush on him. Then we saw a James prank were he wraps up Steve's stuff with plastic wrap on his Have Not dentist chair. Then we get to strategy with Steve and Johnny Mac talking. Johnny Mac says with James and Meg they will be a bigger target, but they will be a smaller target with the Austwins. Liz and Julia say they want to work with Johnny Mac and Steve, after first joking they were triplets. Liz says that Steve and Johnny Mac are smart competitors. They all talk about putting Vanessa on the block, and Johnny Mac says that he has wanted to do it for weeks.
Becky talks with the Austwins, and says that she needs the votes of the Austwins. Becky says she wants Vanessa out.
Julie checks in with everyone. Austin planned a coordinated point when Julie went to the houseguests. We got lots of clips of James scaring Julia. Then we saw Meg smack her face off the ground in OTEV. They are now at day number 64 in the house. Steve says he misses his family and his mom, who talked to every day. This led to a clip of Steve talking to himself in the house, and then we met Steve's mom. Steve and his mom watched Big Brother from the start, and they watched the feeds too.
Next up we have the jury house. Shelli wanted to see Vanessa, and she was shocked to see Jackie. Shelli was shocked that Vanessa put the bug in Steve's ear that Jackie was against him, when it was Vanessa who wanted to back door Steve.
Time for the live eviction. Becky gives a speech, which makes it sound like she knows she is leaving. Becky is dressed nicely. Johnny Mac is dressed down. Johnny Mac says that Becky can cook, and do all these great things that he can't, but he wants to stay so vote for him. That Johnny Mac! Time for the vote:
- Steve evicts Becky
- Vanessa evicts Becky
- Meg evicts Becky
- Austin evicts Becky
- Julia evicts Becky
- James evicts Becky
Then we have a stupid segment with Zingbot.
Time for the endurance. They have to run in six heats. They have to line up, while holding down three buzzers (one for each hand and another for the back foot). On a screen across the yard, they have to run on the word Go. It will say "Ready, Set, Go." But they may see other words before go. It can take a few seconds or it could take 30 minutes. The last one to run across the yard and ring the buzzer is out. If you false start, you are out. They then have to go back and race again. Finally Go pops on the screen. Meg is the last to buzz in. We will have to wait for the second heat, which will be after the show ends. Next week, the three jurors and the one voted out next week will get to battle to get back into the house.
Wednesday, August 19, 2015 -- Evening
POV ShowLiz didn't use the veto yesterday, and from the live feeds, it sounds like Becky will be leaving tomorrow. However, tonight, it's time for the POV show.
The show started with the action right after the nomination ceremony. In DR, Liz talks about maybe targeting Vanessa. The funniest was Becky saying that if a train can't stop her, nothing else can. Austin doesn't like that Johnny Mac gave him the death stare when Austin tried to hug him. Then Vanessa went to talk to Johnny Mac, and she said that she let things slid. Vanessa claims that she went up to make sure that things are okay, and she was trying to save Johnny Mac when she went up to talk to Liz. Yeah, right. Then Steve comes in and tells Johnny Mac that he has to not fight with Vanessa anymore. Steve is trying to find out why Johnny Mac isn't tight with the twins. Steve goes to talk to Liz, Julia, Austin, and Julia about saving Johnny Mac. They all say that they will work with Johnny Mac if he came up to them.
Later, Johnny Mac and Becky talk about the situation. Things are looking bleak. Then we have a segment with Liz and her face mask. Liz decides that she needs to talk to Johnny Mac. When Vanessa goes to DR, Liz calls Johnny Mac into the HOH room. Johnny Mac tells them that Vanessa told him that she went up to the HOH to save Johnny Mac. This freaks out Austin and Liz because it was the opposite. Johnny Mac mentions how everyone who has an argument with Vanessa goes home. Johnny Mac is hoping that the conversation with Liz and Austin would help me out and keep him in the house. Johnny Mac tells them that he will be targeting Vanessa, and he wants to put her in jury. Liz and Austin love this because they don't want to do it to Vanessa, but they want someone too.
Back in the BB house, it's night time. James sneaks in to Julia's room, then lies down beside Julia's bed, and scares her. Julia screams and runs. That practical joker, James. Time to pick for the veto. Liz picks house guest choice, and she picks Austin. Johnny Mac picks Meg, and Becky picks Steve. Julia pretends to be angry because she has never been picked. Julia tells Liz that she wishes had picked her. As Julia says, "hello, sisters before misters." Johnny Mac talks to Austin, and Johnny Mac says no one will win use the veto. Johnny Mac shows his trust and loyalty to the Austwins by saying he would throw the veto. Austin tells the twins that Johnny Mac told Austin that he would throw the veto to Austin. Liz says but what if Becky wins.
Downstairs, Johnny Mac tells Becky to win. As he tells her the only way they could both stay in the house was if Becky won the veto.
Time for the veto competition. It's OTEV, and the backyard is setup like a picnic, with butter on the ramp up to OTEV. OTEV is annoying saying "butter" all the time. The first clue is to get butter that says Jason. Liz is first, followed by Steve, and then followed by Meg, Austin, and Becky. Johnny Mac threw it. Round two. The clue is for Shelli. Becky finds the butter first. Liz comments on how Becky jumped over the butter like a trojan. Steve just doesn't want Becky to win because he wants her to go home. Steve is last though. The next clue is for Clay. Austin runs to the pile that Steve left. Meg is first followed by Liz. Becky tries to run over Austin, and took a handful out of Austin's hands. But it was for Becky, not Clay. Austin makes it, and Becky is out. The next clue was for Da'Vonne. Meg has not seen Day's name before. Austin is first this time, followed quickly by Liz. Meg is out. Becky now knows that her fate is sealed. Final round. The clue was for Jace about not being on the memory wall. Austin can't find a Jace, and he wants the win to get the make out session with Liz. Liz wins POV.
Johnny Mac's assumption is that the veto won't be used, and that he just needs to not make waves. After the veto, Vanessa goes up to talk with Liz. Vanessa starts quizzing Liz about whether Johnny Mac made a deal with Liz. Liz says in DR that Vanessa reminds her of Audrey number 2. Austin says that Vanessa is too paranoid, and that she may not be the best ally. Austin and Liz talk strategy while they put small pig tails in Austin's hair. Johnny Mac feels pretty good at this point in the house. Austin says that their connection is growing over time., and we get to see a make out session, which Liz cuts short. Probably because she doesn't like him. Then Liz winds up with a hickey on her neck. Julia causes Austin on it. As Liz says, what would her parents say. Austin is not the guy her parents would like.
Then we have Vanessa crying because she feels lonely, and she feels like she is on the block again. Steve offers to play chess with Vanessa. Liz comes out and asks why Vanessa is crying. Vanessa says it's because Austin is not talking to her. Liz says in DR that she has heard this story before, and she's tired of Vanessa's show and crying. Liz goes up and tells Austin and Julia about how Vanessa was talking about Austin not talking to her. As Liz says, this conversation about Austin bothers her.
Time for the veto meeting. Becky says in her speech that when Becky was HOH, Liz, Julia, and Austin were comfortably on the couch. James says the blue chairs are more comfortable than the black nomination chairs. Johnny Mac also says that he doesn't want to talk to Julie on Thursday. Liz says that she things that one of them will be easily coming back into the game. Liz says in DR that Vanessa will always be a target in front of her and Julia.
Sunday, August 16, 2015 -- Evening
CryingLiz won the POV last night, and she won't be using the POV.
The show started with Meg being shocked that Jackie went out. Becky also was shocked at the blindside that just happened with Steve as HOH. James is also shocked that someone was in Steve's ear. Then we had DR of Steve flipping out because he didn't want to be HOH. Basically Steve listened to one of the Vanesa's lies about Jackie wanting to backdoor Steve. Meanwhile, James and Meg finally realize that they are alone in the house. James said that they are still in the house, so that's what they should be thinking of. Austin went to comfort Meg even though he was glad Jackie was out. Vanessa went to join in to get information, and do some fake comforting.
Meanwhile Steve is comforted by Liz and Julia. Then Vanessa comforts a crying Steve. Steve said that he can't talk right now because he is so upset. He says it was 50 percent acting when he was alone. Then Johnny Mac talks to Becky, James, and Meg that he didn't use the POV because he was afraid that someone else in the alliance would go up. Becky says that the other side is scared of them because that group can win competitions. Finally Steve goes to talk to Meg and Becky. Steve said that he heard that Jackie was going after him. Becky asks if the information was coming from one person or a group of people. Becky says that it might be helpful to pretend to have bad feeling and they blame Vanessa. Steve says in DR that he is happy that they are blaming Vanessa.
Time for the HOH competition. There are house guest emojis everywhere in the backyard. They have to play tournament style with head to head matches. They will have three emojis to choose from. They will asked questions, and they have to answer from the emojis they see on the board. Meg will be battling James. Austin will be against Johnny Mac. Julia is against Vanessa, and Becky is against Lis. Meg was the first to ring in and she was correct. Johnny Mac and Austin were next. Johnny Mac won that round. Vanessa and Julia are next. Julia rang in, and she was correct. Now it's Becky and Liz. Liz was first and she advanced. It's Meg versus John, and Liz versus Julia. Johnny Mac advances. Johnny Mac thinks he's the smartest on that side of the house. Then it is down to Liz and Julia. Julia was the first to ring in, but she was wrong. It's down to Johnny Mac versus Liz.
Meg is hoping that Johnny Mac will pull it off. The question is which emoji is seen 5 times. Liz was the first to ring in, and she was correct and the new HOH. As Liz says, her alliance is now in control. James says in DR that it is one of the worst situations he has been in, and hopes he is safe this week. Becky says that Vanessa will be in Liz's ear, and Becky should probably start packing now. Meg and Becky talk about their worries of Liz. Becky knows that Vanessa will be posted outside of Liz's room until Becky goes home. Becky tells Meg that Becky made it vocal that she wanted Vanessa out, and Vanessa didn't go out. She can blame her alliance. The twins and Vanessa are celebrating when Johnny Mac awkwardly walks in on them.
The twins, Austin, and Vanessa talk strategy. Liz says absolutely not Steve, but maybe Meg and Johnny Mac. Vanessa says that Meg is not threatening. Vanessa says to put up Becky with Johnny Mac. The target is Becky, but if Becky wins POV, then Johnny Mac can go against Meg and Johnny Mac can go home. They decide on a new alliance name, Austin's Angels. Then Becky goes to the HOH room to talk to Liz and Austin. Becky tries to get them to understand that Vanessa is against them. Becky tells them that Vanessa wanted Becky and Clay to throw the comp and to put up Austin. Liz says in DR that she was shocked about what Vanessa did.
Johnny Mac goes and throws a beach ball right at Meg's head and hits her. Those kids! then James goes to talk to Steve, Austin, and Liz. It seems that James has been hanging out with Steve. As he said, at first it was strategy, but now James has come to like Steve. As James said, Steve likes books, and James likes beer. Then we get a whole slew of clips of James and Steve hanging out together. They have a ton of lame stuff that feel up the show. Then we see that twins, Austin, Vanessa, and Steve trying to come up with an alliance name for their group. Liz is going to let Vanessa think that everything is cool even though it isn't . They come up with the Scamper Squad, which is really lame. But it may be based on Steve scampering around the house.
Becky, Vanessa, and Johnny Mac are have nots, and Johnny Mac asks Vanessa if he is going on the block. Vanessa wants to work with Johnny Mac, but she doesn't think they can because of the fight they had with Clay. Johnny Mac tells Vanessa that he is sure he is going up. Vanessa starts questioning Johnny Mac on where his loyalty lays. Vanessa tells Johnny Mac that the feelings he has against her are unfounded. Johnny Mac says that he felt bullied by Vanessa. Vanessa then got really upset that Johnny Mac would say that. However, as he says, Vanessa brought it up. Vanessa keeps on badgering Johnny Mac about what she could do to make things different. Johnny Mac says that he doesn't like how she yells at people and starts crying. Vanessa then goes up to the HOH room to spin her lies. Vanessa tells the twins and Austin that Johnny Mac should not be a pawn, but should go home. Vanessa claims that Johnny Mac is giving her attitude, and he comes in and calls Vanessa on the fact that they were just talking and Vanessa came running up there. As Johnny Mac says, it looks fishy. It sort of blows Vanessa's whole thing about Johnny Mac giving her attitude. Liz doesn't know who to believe, but of cours,e she does not target Vanessa.
Time for nominations, and Meg is confused. Becky says that she told Liz everything about Vanessa. Johnny Mac is worried that Vanessa through him under the bus. Liz is sticking to her previous alliance and going for the folks who are a bigger threat to her and Julia's game. Liz puts up Becky and Johnny Mac. Liz says that Johnny Mac is a competition beast, and Becky is also good. Becky is not surprised. I really hate Vanessa. She really does seem delusional.

Vanessa Still InsaneLiz won the HOH late last night, and she decided to put up Becky and Johnny Mac. Vanessa wants to get Johnny Mac out, and she has been spreading stories about how Johnny went psycho on her, and that Vanessa feels physically threatened by Johnny Mac, at least that is what she is telling the twins and Austin. The twins and Austin told Johnny Mac, and Johnny Mac was shocked. I really dislike Vanessa, and I really don't like her game play. There have been some who compared her to last year's winner, Derrick, but I just think that Vanessa is a hot mess.

Double EvictionTime for the double eviction episode. I did manage to watch last night's episode, but it was really boring. There was nothing that added to what I already knew. Tonight, however, should be a great night in the BB house. I just hope that Johnny Mac survives.
Julie Chen's hair is very flat and unattractive. The show started with the crumbling of the Sixth Sense alliance. Vanessa was first and crying. Shelli thinks that she will be okay if she lays low. Becky thinks that she only needs four votes because she can break the tie. Vanessa is confused about what Becky said during the POV ceremony. As Vanessa says, "those are harsh words especially for someone like me." Becky said that she didn't like how Vanessa was forcing everyone to do what she wanted. Then Becky walked away from Vanessa saying that she wasn't going to get involved. Vanessa cries; she doesn't understand. Meanwhile Steve tries to be cool with Vanessa because he has to remain cool with the person who is staying in the house (Johnny Mac).
Vanessa was going on about how sad her eyes looked to James. Vanessa thinks that she is in this trouble because she stuck to her word. Huh? Is the girl delusional? I think so. Vanessa tells James that Becky was giving information to Shelli and Clay. So now James wonders why he should support her game. James, Meg, and Jackie talk about what is best for their game: to get rid of Vanessa and Shelli. They admit it is a big decision, but they are going to make the wrong choice, and go for keeping Vanessa.
Double Eviction starts with the spiel from Shelli and Vanessa. Shelli wishes Jason happy birthday. Shelli hopes she gets back into the game, so that means she knows she is out. Then Vanessa talks about law school, and gives a quote to show how smart she is. Time for the vote.
- Austin evicts Shelli
- Steve evicts Shelli
- James evicts Shelli
- Meg evicts Shelli
- Jackie evicts Shelli
- Julia evicts Shelli
- Johnny Mac evicts Shelli
- Liz evicts Shelli
The memory wall in the BB house had 16 clips of events in the house, which will be used for the HOH competition. Time for the competition. Julie will ask questions about the video loops, and the house guests have to answer true or false. Everyone gets the first question right. James, Liz, Meg, and Jackie are out in the second question. Everyone gets the third question right. Julia and Vanessa are out in the fourth question. Everyone gets question five right. Steve wins HOH! Steve is friends with Vanessa and Johnny Mac, So they might be safe.
Time for the live nomination ceremony. Steve puts up Meg and Jackie.
Now it's time for the POV competition. Johnny Mac, James, and Vanessa are also playing in the POV. The POV is called Slippery Slope. They have to roll a ball down a twisted slope, and they have to sink the balls in numerical order. If they get them out of order, they are out. If they are not done in three minutes, the one who has the most in the least time wins. It seems to be a battle between Johnny Mac and James and Johnny Mac wins.
Time for the veto meeting. Speeches. Meg says that she has been an honest player and wants to stay in the house and play. Jackie also says that she played an honest game. Johnny Mac does not use the veto because he does not know who would go up in that person's place. Steve leaves the room because he can't speak coherently. That was action that went on as the show was going to commercial.
Time for speeches. Meg more game to play and wants to stay in the house. Jackie sounds like she knows she is going out. Time for the vote.
- Vanessa evicts Jackie
- Becky evicts Meg
- Johnny Mac evicts Jackie
- Austin evicts Jackie
- James evicts Jackie
- Liz evicts Jackie
- Julia evicts Jackie

No RecapI'm going to be busy and won't be able to watch tonight's show before the double eviction tomorrow. There's not much to catch up on. Steve wins the POV in a comic book competition. He takes himself off the block, and Vanessa goes up in his place. Vanessa is not happy, but doesn't have quite the breakdown we all expected. Then James, Meg, and Jackie start to think they want to keep Vanessa and get rid of Shelli. This is especially the case because Shelli accused James of stealing one of Clay's shirts, and she went and stole it back. So that's probably what will be on the show, with lots extra fluff. I will be watching the Double Eviction! It will probably be Shelli and who knows who else.

Vanessa on the BlockSteve used the POV on himself, and Becky put up Vanessa in his place. So far, Vanessa hasn't had the complete collapse that I expected, but I think the pot is percolating.
Sunday, August 9, 2015 -- Evening
BB RecapBecky put up Steve and Shelli, and Steve won the POV, so the plan is to put up Vanessa in his place. The show was on tonight, and we should get to see all the house's drama, I hope.
The show started with the HOH competition. We got to see them falling. James wants Becky, Jackie, or Meg to win. Steve does not want Becky to win. Shelli wants to win to put up James. Meg and Austin really suck. Finally, we got to see the Vanessa started fight. James and Johnny Mac are talking. Then Johnny Mac told Clay that he did not want Clay to go home because Johnny Mac thinks that Vanessa is in Shelli's head. Clay then goes to Vanessa and says that James has told Johnny Mac that Vanessa is in Shelli's head, and Clay tells Vanessa to make Johnny Mac feel like part of the group. Vanessa goes to James about telling stories about her. James confronts Clay about it. A huge fight ensues. Vanessa starts fighting with Clay, and Vanessa starts crying, and it's like Johnny Mac has called it. Vanessa fights with someone, and then that someone gets voted out the house. Vanessa in DR is confused, basically because she is psycho. After the psycho leaves, Johnny Mac talks with Clay and Shelli about how Vanessa does this act every time and it sends someone home.
Shelli is hoping that she or Julia wins HOH. Austin is constantly falling. Johnny Mac is trying to keep on pace with the others. James is really hoping that Shelli doesn't win, and that's when Becky starts to pull ahead. It does not look like Becky fell at all. As Julia says, a train can't stop Becky. Becky got the Never Not ball first. Then she got the $5000, and finally HOH. Becky says that everyone will be shocked at who she puts up.
After HOH, Shelli starts crying because Clay isn't around. Meg is the one who comforted her and hugged her. Becky admits that she trusts Jackie, Meg, and James more in the house. Liz asks Shelli how far Texas is from Georgia (where Shelli lives). Shelli says that they can go to New York to stay with Meg. Ha! Liz thinks that Becky might put up Vanessa. Johnny Mac tells Steve to not worry about anything. Johnny Mac says that he and Becky have bonded over being outsiders. Steve and Johnny Mac talk about how Vanessa operates. Steve is nervous about Vanessa because he is closest to Johnny Mac and Vanessa, and Steve realizes that the fight before eviction makes Johnny Mac hate Vanessa. Steve does get Johnny Mac to promise to make a move on Becky in jury, not in the BB house. It seems Becky had tons of healthy food, like Brussels sprouts.
Becky says that Vanessa's plan was to get rid of Shelli. Becky says they say they are sticking with the plan. They put up Shelli and Steve, and then they get Vanessa. As Becky says, Vanessa has sent tons of people home. They all admit that they feel safer in the house with Shelli than Vanessa. Becky says they need to stick with it because Vanessa would work them. As Becky says, she's worked Black Friday, Becky knows how to deal with Vanessa.
Steve admits that he spaces out a lot, dances by himself, and talks to himself. Steve thinks he's a strange person, but he likes himself, so he's okay with it.
Shelli then goes crying to Becky, and Becky tells Shelli about the bigger plan. Becky wants to gain trust. Becky said that it took nothing for Vanessa to throw Shelli under the bus. Shelli realizes that she can't do anything to save Shelli. Becky explains that they want to get rid of Vanessa. Then Vanessa goes up to talk with Becky and Austin. Becky says that the plan is to put Steve and Shelli up, and if one comes down to put up Johnny Mac. Austin leaves and Vanessa and Becky talk. Vanessa wants to make a deal with Becky, and Becky says that she is done with deals, and doesn't even want to hear about it. This really seems to stump Vanessa. Vanessa says in DR that Becky isn't a strategic player.
Johnny Mac tells Becky his plan to backdoor Vanessa. Johnny Mac says this is the best thing that could happen. Time for the nomination ceremony. I like that they just have the two keys of the house guests who are marked for eviction. First nominated is Shelli, and the second is Steve. Becky wants Steve to get his hands dirty since he is huge BB super fan. Shelli wants to win the POV. Vanessa begins her fixating on overthinking things. Johnny Mac wants Vanessa out. Steve, who hates Becky, rants about his plan being to lay low, and that Becky is his target since she called him out.

Becky Wins HOHBecky really aced the HOH competition last night. She was so far ahead of everyone that not only did she take the HOH ball out of the bowl, she also got the $5000 and the Have Not pass. I wondered how Becky would handle her HOH. Whose side was Becky on? She's been feeding information to Shelli and Clay, and she's been sitting in on James, Jackie, and Meg conversations. Well, it seems that Becky decided to go for a possible big move with her nominations. Becky nominated Shelli and Steve, but her plan is to backdoor Vanessa. The backstory is that Vanessa caused some drama yesterday afternoon. She was started her whole psycho questioning game that resulted in Clay and James almost coming to fisticuffs. It also explains why everyone decided to vote out Clay yesterday. We'll have to see if the backdoor Vanessa plan works. This coming Thursday will be a double eviction night, which can be rough on Vanessa.
Thursday, August 6, 2015 -- Evening
Shelli or Clay?The news has been out on the news groups that there will be an endurance competition tonight. I can't wait to see who goes home. The show started right after the POV ceremony. Clay says that Shelli and he have the strongest bond of love and trust. Liz is glad that it's not her, and that there are two pairs in the house, Clay and Shelli and Liz and Julia. James really wants to get rid of Shelli, and he hopes the others go with it. Shelli cries over they have four days left. Of course it is all about Vanessa who is only worried about herself. Shelli wants to stay in the houes, but not in any way that hurts Clay. Later, James talks to Austin about everything that Clay and Shelli told James. James wants to work with Austin. Later, Austin wants to talk to Vanessa. Austin tells Vanessa everything that was said. Austin tries to get Vanessa to understand that Clay and Shelli did them wrong. Vanessa calls them fools.
Vanessa is upset that Clay and Shelli outed her, but she needs to save her alliance. Shelli lies to Vanessa about not telling James anything. Then Shelli campaigns against Clay, saying it is better to keep her because she is a competitor. Shelli tells Liz, Julia, Vanessa, and Austin that she was squeezed by Shelli, and that she was being pressured. It seems the Sixth Sense alliance is going to keep Shelli. Then Julie Chen showed videos of people rooting for various houseguests.
Shelli and Clay do more lying around together and talking about stupid stuff. Shelli says that they want to continue the relationship outside the house. Then we get a scene with very noisy kissing.
Everyone is in the HOH room. James said that he wants to send Shelli home. The Sixth Sense try to talk everyone into voting out Clay. Jackie realizes that Vanessa wants Shelli to stay. They are really stupid people because you should get rid of Shelli. Jackie explains to James that Vanessa is going to screw them over, and Shelli may stay. Liz and Julia talk about not standing Clay and wanting him out. Liz and Julia say they have to do what is best for their game. Vanessa says if Clay stays, they will work with him. One of the twins says to take out a strong player, like Shelli. Austin doesn't know what to do because he doesn't want to piss of the James gang.
Then we have a segment with Derrick and Cody. Derrick and Cody see each other once a month and talk every day. They seem to like James and his move. It was nice to see that they get along still. I guess they couldn't get Clay's family to be for him dating an older woman. Clay asks everyone to vote for Shelli to stay. Shelli cries over how Clay is her rock, and how they will have an amazing experience for them all to be in love outside the house. Both say "all y'all." Time for the vote:
- Vanessa evicts Clay
- Meg evicts Clay
- Austin evicts Clay
- Jackie evicts Clay
- Liz evicts Clay
- Julia evicts Clay
- Steve evicts Clay
- Becky evicts Clay
- Johnny Mac evicts Clay
They all hear that they will all make it to jury, but that doesn't mean they are out of the game. The competition is the usual carry a cup of water over a slippery track to a big bowl, and fill it up. There are three balls. They can either get HOH, $5000, or a Have-Not pass. However, once someone takes the HOH ball, the game is over.
Next week will be a double eviction night.
Thursday, August 6, 2015 -- Afternoon
BB Recap of Wednesday's showI am really having trouble watching the Wednesday show. Hopefully, this will improve next week. The show started post nomination ceremony. Vanessa said that she was there for them, and hugged Clay. Clay and Shelli cried and whined about being on the block. How could anyone have the nerve to put them up. Vanessa hovered around them, and Shelli gave Vanessa the evil eye. Obviously Vanessa is somehow HOH. Clay starts saying something about James going back on his word, and Mommy Shelli tells Clay to shut up. Shelli still believes that she could have outlasted James, but we know that isn't the case. Vanessa is upset because Shelli is blaming Vanessa about being on the block. Shelli doesn't understand why Austin or the twins aren't on the block. Vanessa goes to cry to Clay and Shelli about how life is awful for Vanessa, and Clay tells her that he and Shelli are on the block. Vanessa tells Shelli not to do anything that would hurt Vanessa's game. Vanessa keeps on crying and saying that she is the most loyal person to Clay and Shelli, and they are turning Vanessa against them.
Then Vanessa goes outside and starts crying about how she is such a good person and that everyone is blaming Vanessa for Jason going on the block. James says that Clay and Shelli like to sit in the back and point the finger to everyone else. James tries to explain that he did this for everyone. Shelli goes to the door to the outside and comments about how Vanessa is out laughing with everyone. Shelli goes out and asks what everyone is talking about, and no one answers. Clay then talks about how Clay and Shelli both had James' back from the first day. James said in DR that he has been on the block too many time while Shelli was HOH. Shelli keeps on talking about how James did not keep his deal. James tries to tell them that it's split milk, so where do they go from there. James is great!
Shelli assures Vanessa that she will not turn against the alliance. From the way Vanessa is acting, you would think that she was on the block. I think it's hilarious to hear Vanessa. Then Shelli starts crying about how this week is the worst one because she won't be going to jury with Clay. Vanessa says in DR that it has to be a two way street. Then Austin says in DR that all he could think about is how he is going to go to jury with Liz. Time to pick for the veto. James picks house guest choice, and he chooses Jackie. Shelli picks Becky, and Clay picks Vanessa. Vanessa says this whole thing is hard on her because if she loses, she could go on the block. I notice that Becky is hanging out with James and Jackie. Becky is playing both sides, and she's pretty annoyingly dumb, so enough of her.
The POV competition is a game of rounds. It's set up like the Game of Thrones, and they have to fling a dart from the catapult. The person with the lowest score is out, but gets to pick a prize. The problem is that people who come after you can take your prize. Jackie has the lowest score, so she gets the 6th place price. It's the veto. Round 2 and Shelli landed off the game board. Shelli pouts. Shelli is out, and she gets the 5th place prize: a knight in shining armor. She takes the veto, and Jackie gets the armor. As Shelli says, she already has a knight in shining armor: Clay. Vanessa lands off the board. Vanessa is out, and takes the 4th place Ireland castle vacation. Clay gets the lowest score, and he gets the 3rd place crown. It ia a 24 hour bond to constantly shine the knight's armor. Clay takes the Ireland trip. James wants to win the veto. He scores a 10 in the round, and Becky just throws it, and lands in the water. Becky's second place prize is $5000. She keeps the money. James' first place prize is castle guard, where he has to complete a regiment 2400 times in 24 hours, or he can't compete in POV next week. James thought the 5K could make a difference to his little girl, but he takes the veto from Shelli.
After the competition, Clay and Shelli hug. Shelli thinks it will be a long two months without Clay. Shelli goes to DR, and then Meg and Clay start hugging. Johnny Mac says that Clay and Meg are almost making out in from of him. Meg says that she can't prommise to vote Clay out. The two of them cry. Meg tells Clay that she bonded with him from the start and they both know. They both hug some more. Boy, will Shelli be pissed at that one. Then Jackie and Vanessa go to DR for their costumes. Then Shelli goes off to do her punishment. Every 100, she has to run in the house, ringing a bell. The armor shining is lame. As Shelli is doing her punishment, Clay tells her that they have to try something. Everyone cheers when Shelli finishes her punishment.
Shelli and Clay talk to James in the HOH room, and tell him that Austin has an alter ego named Judas. Clay babbles, and James asks Shelli if she is on narcotic drugs. James said that he will have to think about it and come up with a decision. Time for the POV meeting. Clay gets his word fast, and he says that he knows he will always have his love with her. Shelli says that they have been good people, good to their word, and good to everyone. James says that he feels that they turned their back on him, and James does not use the POV. Shelli cries in the DR, and says she can't fight against Clay. Clay says that he can't campaign against Shelli.
Endurance RecapJames won the POV on the live feeds, and it was a punishment veto. Shelli has to walk around and whack things with a sword, and Jackie has to wear knight armor. Vanessa is Jackie's squire for 24 hours.
Tonight's show starts with the endurance competition. Julia realizes that things might be against her. Vanessa is the same. Austin thinks he will get a kiss from Liz if he wins, so he wants to win for the smooch. James asked people right at the beginning if they wanted to make any deals, but James wants to win so he can peck back at the other side. Austin was whimping out after 20 minutes. Austin is creepy, just fixating on the kiss from Liz. Steve and Austin were the first to fall. Then Julia and Meg fell. Austin thought it was Liz at first, because he is an idiot. The ones on the wall got lots of water, gunk, and hits from eagles while they hung on. James is determined not to fall off because he knows he will be the target. Jackie is trying to hold on, but she falls around an hour and a half in. James says he has to win since all his people are off now. Then Liz fell. James starts playing mind games by telling Clay that James is in worse shape. Clay drops and it is down to Shelli, Johnny Mac, and James.
Meg was hoping James would hold on for all of them. Clay says that Shelli needs to win. Shelli is getting tired and doesn't know if winning HOH for the third time is in her best interests. Shelli wants a deal for her and Clay's safety. Vanessa says that says something about her relationship. James said that as Boogie says, you can bounce a bunch of checks up in the BB house. James does say Shelli and Clay are safe. HA! Johnny Mac falls off, not wanting to make deals. Shelli says that she thinks James will keep his word, or he will be seen as a liar in front of the whole house. James wins. Julia's picture replaces Jace's in the house. Meg is happy that James wins because she doesn't have to vote out one of her peeps. Jackie says that Shelli made the deal with James because she knew she was going to fall.
Julia wanted to talk to Liz because she felt betrayed by Austin. Julia doesn't believe LIz. Julia called Austin on giving out her name and calling Austin shady. Julia thinks that Austin was just trying to get her out. Julia obviously doesn't believe him. Julia doesn't trust one word that Austin says. As Julia says, she would not trust Austin with a 10 foot pole.
Then Shelli talks with Vanessa about how she couldn't win a third HOH. Vanessa realizes that she is not high in trust in with Shelli and Clay. Shelli thinks James will put up Vanessa. Austin goes to talk to Shelli and Clay about how they need to talk to Julia because Julia doesn't like him. Then Clay tells Shelli that they have to throw the twins and Austin under the bus.
Then we had a clip about how Clay can't make sense of speak clearly. As Johnny Mac says, Clay must have been hit in the head one too many times on the football field. Then we have a segment on James scaring Steve as he comes out of the bathroom. Next up is a segment with Jackie, Meg, and Becky up in the HOH talking to James. Becky is trying to act like an ally. But it is obvious that Becky is supporting Shelli and Clay. She tries to talk James out of it. Meg and Jackie throw out Austin and the twins' names.
Becky runs downstairs to tell Chad and Shelli about Meg, Jackie, and James talking about putting up Shelli. Clay wants to talk to Shelli about what they should do. Shelli wants to talk to Vanessa. Shelli is upset because she stupidly thought that winning the HOH would not be good for her. Vanessa goes up to beg to James to save her life. Vanessa tries to say that she did not want Jason to go home. Vanessa says that it was Shelli and Clay. Vanessa was blameless. Vanessa tries to claim that she is a solo player in the game, like James. Vanesa tells James that if she makes it to HOH before the final 7, she will let James have safety and one person of James' choice.
Shelli and Clay go up to talk to James. Shelli asks James if their deal is still good. James said that it's unfortunately that Jason happened. Shelli says that she felt in the moment that she had to lie about knowing to save herself. Then Shelli tells James that Austin is the person who threw Jason under the bus. James says that he is just going to tell them what they want to hear. James goes down to talk to Meg, and says that instead of putting up pawns, he is thinking of putting both Shelli and Clay up because the pair needs to be broken up. Meg also says that everyone would keep the nominations the same. James said he came into the house ot make big moves.
All I have to say is that Shelli and Clay are really stupid because they don't think that anyone should target them. If I were them, I would want to get rid of Shelli too because Clay is obviously brainless.
It's time for the nominations. Instead of the house guests taking out their keys, the HOH just shows who he nominated. The first one James nominated was Clay, and the second was Shelli. Boy, was that good. James says that Shelli is a beast, and would always be with Clay. James says that he may have made a deal, but it is up to him whether he holds to the deal. Shelli tries to call out James for making the deal in front of everyone. Shelli thinks that it means everything for her to win the veto so both can stay in the house.
