The Daily Bongo
Thursday, July 30, 2015 -- Evening
Julie Chen gave us the news that Julia would be entering the BB house, and that there would be an endurance competition for a single HOH. Finally! I hated the whole Battle of the Block.
Vanessa apologizes to Jason claiming she didn't want to do it, but she had no choice. Jason said that he didn't want to hear any stupid story from her. Meg cries, and Jackie is pissed that she was blindsided. Becky hopes to lay low and get all the votes. Jason said that it means a lot more to him than it does to the other people. Jason promises to fight like a superfan does. Shelli claims she had no idea. Jason realizes that Shelli and Clay aren't upset and that they have been behind every eviction. Austin thinks he is going to go far in this game. Meg asks Clay if he knew, and Clay lies and says that he and Shelli didn't know. Clay is befuddled, and he doesn't know what to say. Meg says Vanessa took the Austin's deal, and screwed the others in her alliance. Clay can't answer, and makes some stupid remarks because he is an idiot.
Meg then goes up to Vanessa and cries because Meg is Jason's bestie. Meg said that she felt betrayed, and Vanessa throws Shelli and Clay under the bus because saying they knew. Then Jackie came up to ask what happened. Shelli and Liz were there. Liz says that Jason is at fault for Austin outing the twins. Vanessa says everyone wanted Jason out. Then Jackie turned to Shelli and asks if Shelli wanted Jason out. Shelli says no. And Vanessa was like everyone wanted him out. Meg and Jackie talk about how obviously Shelli, Clay, Vanessa, Liz, and Austin are working together. Meg tells Jason that Clay and Shelli was working agatinst everyone. James joins them, and Meg, Jackie, and Jason cry while James tells them to pull it together. Shelli, Clay, and Vanessa are talking, and Vanessa said that she didn't make the choice on her own. Shelli says that everyone is going to be after her and Clay because they were the only ones who come out looking like lying backstabbers. Shelli yells at Vanessa, but then what did Shelli expect?
Jackie, Meg, James, and Jason talk about numbers. Jason said that they need to get two more people. Instead of going for the obvious Steve and Johnny Mac, Jason decides that they need to flip Shelli and Clay. Jason is trying to make Shelli and Clay paranoid about Becky coming from them. Jason said that he can be more loyal to them than Becky. Jason says that Becky would put the two of them up. Clay says that they can't piss off Liz and Austin. Jason tries to tell them that Liz, Julia, and Austin would be a three headed monster.
Then we get a fluff story about Johnny Mac's dental practice and family. After the commercial break, it's time for the live vote. Becky says everyone is genuine, kind people. Rolling eyes! What a stupid idiot! Jason tells people to vote for the person who will be best for their game. Now for the vote.
Jason is out with a vote of 7-2. Oh Mylanta! :( Jason tells Julie Chen that he was naive because he should have known not to trust the people in the house. Jason blames Chelli (Clay and Shelli). Jason thinks Vanessa has more soul. Jason wonders why he was viewed as such as threat. As he said, it was like shooting a fish in a barrel to take him out. Jason said that Jason the fan outdid Jason the player. But as Jason said, he was bored, and you just wanted to gossip.
Jason said that everyone of his people should hold on until September. Jason thinks Meg will go far because people will overlook her. Meg doesn't know what she will do in the house without him. I am really disappointed that Jason is leaving the house because I really liked him.
- Austin evicts Jason
- Meg evicts Becky
- Liz evicts Jason
- James evicts Becky
- Steve evicts Jason
- Jackie evicts Jason
- Shelli evicts Jason
- Clay evicts Jason
- Johnny Mac evicts Jason
The endurance competition is to hang onto the wall. The wall tilts forward and back, and the house guests have to hold on with rock climbing handles. Of course, there is water on them.
Julie learns from Julie Chen Liz survived. Julie is going into the house. Julie gets to go into the house. Julie Chen calls the others into the living room, and tells everyone that Julia is coming into the house. Julie Chen also tells them the battle of the block is over, and there is an endurance competition.
Now we have to watch the live feeds to see who wins this competition. BB adds stuffed eagles that are flung into the house guests. This could be a good competition, if they hold on!

BB Recap of Jason Backstab
For some reason, Wednesday has been a rough day for me, and I have been missing BB when it is shown on those days. But fortunately, there is the DVR and CBS On Demand. The show started post BOB. Shelli is upset that Clay is still on the block, and she is feeling helpless. Vanessa did not want to be the remaining HOH, and she didn't think that she would be the one who would have to get rid of Austin. Vanessa refers to it as the blood bath continuing. Jackie says that she hopes the plan continues. Shelli, Vanessa, and Jackie talk about getting Liz on board. James tries to make clear to Becky and Clay that he tried to throw the competition, but he just couldn't do it. Becky says that now she is safe, but she could be going home. Clay tells Johnny Mac that he will play have to play for the veto. In DR, Johnny Mac goes through all the scenarios Clay has put Johnny Mac through in this same situation. Liz realizes that she had to play the game by herself, and she thinks James tried to throw it. Austin is freaking out when he hears that James may have been trying to throw it.
Austin ran up to Vanessa to tell her that Liz thought James was throwing the competition, and Austin thinks Clay is being targeted. Austin isn't the brightest bulb. Lis does say in DR that she loves hanging out with Austin, but that she is in a bit of pickle because Austin is falling for her. So, Austin is trying to make out with her. Liz really doesn't see him in a romantic light. Austin kisses Liz, and she replies that she hates Austin. Liz said it was a sneak attack. Austin is clueless to the signs. Austin claims that Liz was bashful about it and they both enjoyed the kiss.
Time to pick for the veto competition. Austin picks House Guest Choice. She chooses Shelli. Clay picks Johnny Mac. Becky picks Liz. Liz worries Vanessa because Liz isn't in on the plan to backdoor Austin. Jackie, Becky, and Vanessa talk about how to deal with Liz because she doesn't want to do Liz and Julia dirty. Jackie and Becky try to tell Vanessa to wait until after POV because Liz will not keep her mouth shut.
We get some filler of Steve being followed by a camera. Lame! Time for veto, which is hosted by Jason. The competition has the house guests dressed up as scores. They have to roll a ball (acorn) up a ramp, and then catch it on the downward fall. If the ball passes the top 250 times, the person wins. It was just running back and forth. If the ball hits the ground, the person has to start again from zero. Liz's ball keeps on going backward. Liz has issues getting the ball up the ramp. Steve seemed inordinately happy that Becky was having problems. Who knows what's up with that! Clay wound up winning. Becky is upset because she has lost three comps in a row.
Clay called his win a good old fashioned Texas ass whooping. Then Becky cries over how she is a wrecked soccer player, and how she will have to be on the block. Vanessa wants to tell Liz about the plan to backdoor Austin, and wants to talk to Liz without Austin. It took forever for Liz to come upstairs, which they didn't show. Then Shelli and Vanessa tell Liz about Austin spreading the news of the two twins. Vanessa said that Austin made a deal with Jason that Jason can target Julia. Liz tells Shelli and Vanessa that she really doesn't even like Austin. Vanessa said that Austin is making Liz a showmance target. Shelli and Clay are stunned that Liz sees Austin as an ally. Liz then tells Shelli and Vanessa that Austin is a number for them.
Austin goes up to talk to Vanessa, and she tells Austin that Liz is target of the year, and Vanessa asks Austin why Austin would sell Julia's sister out to Jason. Vanessa tells Austin that Jason is not Austin's friend. Vanessa claims that she is the only person who can be trusted. Then Vanessa cries crocodile tears about how she thought she was Austin's friend. Austin tells Vanessa that he is a number for Vanessa and would never go against her in the game. So Vanessa tells Austin that he is just an idiot, and that Vanessa said she gave her word that she would put up Austin, but we all know that Vanessa's word is nothing.
Austin goes and talks to Clay and Shelli and tells them that he is falling in love with Liz and was not thinking clearly. Austin claims he does not care about the money, and Liz's love is all that matters to him. Austin says is that Jason betrayed him. Clay is concerned about how emotional Austin is. Austin claims that he is a number for them. Shelli says that they have to keep their numbers solid.
Time for the Outback dinner. Vanessa took Becky; Liz took Austin, and James picked Clay. That was stupid because James could have picked Meg. That whole bit was lame. Vanessa talks with Clay and Shelli about who to put up. If they went through with the backdoor of Austin, no one would be after them. Shelli though says the numbers are worse for her. Vanessa is worried about being a target, and Clay claims that Austin will always be a bigger target. Vanessa claims that Jason is the only one on the other side who has any smarts. The rest of the people there are stupid. Vanessa cries, and claims she is so torn. Blah!
Time for the Veto meeting. Austin thinks he has mended fences. Clay takes himself off the block, and Vanessa said it was the most difficult decision, and goes on about how much she loves the person. Jason is told to take a seat. The others are stunned. Vanessa claims it was good for her game to do this. Jackie was blindsided. Jason calls Vanessa a scumbag bitch, and says that if he says, Vanessa is getting it.
Sunday, July 26, 2015 -- Evening
The Sunday show started with Vanessa saying she had to win as soon as Jackie became HOH. It seems on the feeds, she was going to throw it to Jason, but that didn't happen. James made the comment that he thought another guy would go home this week because the women are ruling the game. Liz and Julia change, and Austin talks to Jason in the bathroom about the twins. Jason wonders how Austin telling him about the twins helps Austin. Jason comments that the personalities are totally different. Austin says that he wants to work with both the twins, but that his heart belongs to Liz. Meanwhile before the eviction, Meg and Jason whisper in the bed about the twins, and how Austin doesn't care if Julia goes because he wants to keep Liz around. Then Jason and Meg corner Shelli, and they tell Shelli what Austin has been telling them about the twins. Shelli knows that Jason is telling the truth because Jason knows the name of the twin, so Shelli knows that Austin spilled the beans. Then Shelli tells Vanessa the same story. This all went down before Audrey's eviction, so we see more Shelli running around telling Clay about Austin telling everyone. Vanessa, Shelli, and Clay talk about how they should tell the twins about what Austin has said. Vanessa wonders if they need to cut Austin from the Sixth Sense alliance.
Vanessa talks with Jackie about the nominations, and Jackie mentions putting up Liz and Steve. Jackie makes sense and says that if the other twin comes into the game, the twins and Austin will be a threesome.
Time for the HOH room reveal. Boring. Vanessa has to be sure that Austin is the Judas that she suspects he is. Vanessa and Austin talk, and Austin tries to blame Jason for targeting Julia. James comes into the room to say that Vanessa's mom is gorgeous. But they talk some more about Austin working with Vanessa, and when Austin leaves, Vanessa says to the camera that Austin is lying to her. Then Vanessa talks to Julia about Austin wanting to get to jury with Liz. Meanwhile, Julia admits that Liz is not into Austin. Then Vanessa tells Julia everything that Austin told Jason. Julia is pissed that Austin is targeting and claims she won't tell Liz.
After the commercial break, there is more discussion between Vanessa, Shelli, and Clay about Austin lying. Yawn! Jackie then comes into HOH, and says that she wants to target Liz/Austin. Jackie wonders if she should put someone up to throw it. Clay says that he will go up with Becky; they will win the BOB; and Jackie remains HOH and targets Austin. Jackie asks Becky if she would go up with Clay. So Vanessa will put up Clay and Becky. Jackie will put up Liz and someone else. Vanessa and Jackie talk to Jason, Meg, and James about Jackie putting up Liz and then one of them, so Jackie can backdoor Austin. Jason says that he gets the concept but that he would not be into throwing a competition. Jackie says that James put her up so she can put up James.
Vanessa tells Austin that Jackie will be putting Liz up. Vanessa tells Austin that she has to put up either Clay or Shelli. Austin says that Becky and Clay will win. Austin is dumb and doesn't get that he might be the target. Time for nominations. Jackie puts up James and Liz. As Jackie says, she is returning the favor of them putting her on the block. Vanessa puts up Clay and Becky. The story is that she was being fair since Clay hasn't won anything. People congratulate Johhny Mac for not geting nominated. As Johnny Mac says, he may have to watch a competition. Vanessa says that she really likes Julia, and wants the twins to trust her when Austin is gone. Julia tells Liz that Jackie won HOH and put up Liz. Julia refers to Becky and Clay as Team America. Shelli is really upset that Clay is up on the block.
Time for BOB. They are told to study the memory wall, and they see the BB16 folks. Jason makes a funny about the blank wall being like what's in Clay's head. They have to figure out which three BB houseguests from last season at at Outback Steak house. The winning team also gets a special award. They have to throw paint on the wall, and figure out the three from the letters that appear on the wall. Liz wants to make sure to win so she and Julia come into the house next week. James and Lis throw paint at the wall. Clay is throwing paint on the walls while Becky makes guesses at the names. Liz thinks that James is not the sharpest Crayola in the box, and she has to be the brains. James says Lix is one smart cookie and he can't throw the game. James and Liz won by getting the names Hayden, Victoria, and Christine. Austin is the only one excited. James and Liz get dinner from Outback. Liz basically won on her own.

Clutch of Constables by Ngaio Marsh
One of my favorite mystery authors is Ngaio Marsh. I've read all of her books, some more than once, and I've enjoyed all of them immensely. Although Christie's later books weren't as good as the earlier ones, all of Marsh's books were equally good. I decided that I wanted to re-read some of her books, so I went to the local library, and I found Clutch of Constables. This was one of the later books, written in 1968. Agatha Troy was older, with a son who was touring in Europe, and a husband, Roderick Alleyn, who was in America, tracking down the Jampot. The Jampot was a master criminal who dealt in art forgeries. However, it was not Roderick Alleyn who came into contact with the Jampot, it was Troy. She joined a river cruise that traveled through the countryside that John Constable commemorated in paintings. Troy felt that something was not right with the others on the cruise. Troy wrote to her husband expressing her concerns. When a possible Constable was found by a pair of the passengers in a junk yard, Alleyn hurried back, sure that the Jampot was within grasp and on that boat. Unfortunately, he didn't get back in time to prevent one of the other boat passengers from dying.
Marsh did a masterful job in plotting out this mystery. You can feel the tension build. I know that I started to suspect several of the passengers, and I wasn't sure if I was really onto the Jampot until the very end. Fortunately for me, even though I had read the book before, I couldn't remember the murderer. All of Marsh's mysteries have an erudite air about them, and there is always a lesson to be learned about art, literature, or classical theater. I am a fan of Roderick Alleyn and Agatha Troy, and it was very enjoyable to revisit them in Clutch of Constables.

Expecting the Unexpected
I've been waiting all week for today. What will Audrey do during the eviction? We'll all find out just how psycho the psycho can be. Even Julie Chen started the show by asking that very same question.
In fact, as Julie said, they wondered if Audrey would leave the game. Vanessa talked about Audrey not showing up for eviction for the first time in BB history. Shelli commented on how putting Audrey on the block was the best decision for everyone. Johnny Mac made comments about how the person they all expected to blow up didn't show up at the veto meeting. BB did show Audrey camping out and staying in the diary room for hours. They talked about how Audrey was in the diary room for hours. Audrey came out of the diary room an hour before the veto, and they figured out it was five hours. James made an omelet for her, and took it into the Have Not room. I think it was very nice of James to do that. Audrey finally emerged from the Have Not room wrapped in a blanket and a hoodie to go back into the diary room. Obviously Audrey was really have a mental breakdown. Right before the commercial break, we see Audrey in the eviction chairs.
Julie Chen started the conversation by asking Jason about the Whackstreet Boys. Julie tells Jason that the Whackstreet Boys have taken the country by storm. The Backstreet Boy tweeted them. We then has a Whackstreet Boy live performance. Then we got to hear from Audrey's family and friends. Audrey prefers female to transgender, because she's not transitioning any more. Her family wished she had slowed down and not played as hard.
Audrey got one penalty vote for eating regular food for this week when she was a Have-Not. Time for speeches. Audrey tells people how to find her after the show. Then she said that the people in the house have wanted her out for a while so Merry Fricking Christmas. John just said something stupid. Time for the vote:
Audrey was evicted with 9 votes and 1 penalty vote. They all say bye to Audrey, who goes out to talk with Audrey--after the commercial break.
- Clay evicted Audrey
- James evicted Audrey
- Austin evicted John--hinky vote
- Jason evicted Audrey for Da'Vonne
- Vanessa evicted Audrey
- Becky evicted Audrey
- Jackie evicted Audrey
- Steve evicted Audrey
- Liz evicted Audrey
- Meg evicted Audrey
Audrey thought that it was a spectacle moment when everyone accepted her in the house. Audrey said that everyone voted with the house, and her allies were basically Shelli and Clay, and they outed her. Shelli claims to be her true friend and hopes Audrey grows from this. John said that Audrey was a really nice person, but she just played too hard, and needed to pump the breaks. Jason said some sarcastic comments, and Steve wished her the best.
Time for the HOH competition. They had to face off in two and answer questions about the HOH, BOB, or POV. Correct answer wins. Incorrect loses. Winner picks who faces off. Jason went against Steve, and answered BOB and won. Johnny Mac and Austin were next. Austin got BOB, and was right. Johnny Mac is out. Next it was Jackie and Becky. Jackie guessed the HOH, and Becky was out. Liz and Vanessa were next. Vanessa won that one. Jackie and Meg were next.
After the commercial break, Jackie was first to buzz in with veto and won. Jackie picks Austin and James. James hit the buzzer right off the block, and got it right, eliminating Austin. Clay and Vanessa were next. James and Jackie were next. James quickly picked HOH, and he was wrong, so Jackie was the first HOH!!!!! Vanessa and Jason were next. Vanessa got the last question right, and Vanessa is HOH number 2.
Julie brought Britney Haynes back. Britney now has two kids--looks like girls. Britney claims that this is her favorite season. Britney loves Jason because he is so funny, and like Vanessa as a player. As Britney says, everyone loves Johnny Mac. Nothing new, and if Liz makes it past next week, Julia comes in.

BB Recap of Audrey Insanity
Although I wasn't able to watch the show yesterday, I saw on Twitter that people weren't excited about the episode. The episode starts after the Battle of the Block. Shelli isn't sure who she wants to send home. Jason hopes to get himself off the block so he doesn't go home broke and back in the basement. Johnny Mac admits that he wasn't trying to be on the block, but that's where he ended up. He hopes his good streak with the veto continues.
Audrey goes and tells James all this information about Shelli and Clay and that Shelli threw Audrey under the bus. James does some game playing by sharing what Audrey told him. James tells Shelli and Clay in the HOH room that Audrey is targeting them in the sense that she doesn't trust Shelli and might want to split up Shelli and Clay.
Clay goes to talk to Audrey, and Audrey has a pity party for herself, exposing her paranoia about how she might go up as a replacement nominee. Audrey is really screwing herself over. Meanwhile Shelli talks with Vanessa in the HOH room. Shelli admits that she put out Audrey's name to Jason, and Audrey is now pissed. Clay went up to Shelli and said that Audrey is crying because she's so paranoid. In DR, Shelli admits that she might have to put Audrey up. As Shelli says, Audrey was pushing away the people that were trying to protect her.
Next up was a whole bit about the Whackstreet Boys, with the losers of the Battle of the Block, Jason, Johnny Mac, and Liz having to dress up in white suits and dance to 90s music at random times during the day. Then it was time to pick for the POV. Shelli picked Vanessa. Johnny Mac picks Meg. Jason gets house guest's choice, and he picks James. James said that he would use the veto on Jason if he wins. Steve is going to be the MC of the game. Jason thinks that the player pick draw is good for him because he can convince the others to take him off.
Meg is in HOH saying that she has no idea of what is going on. Vanessa, Shelli, Clay, and Jason say that Audrey is the target. Shelli says the whole thing is making her sick because Audrey's paranoia is really getting to Shelli. James rings the doorbell to go up into the HOH room, and now everyone who is playing for the veto is in HOH. Audrey then corners James to find out what is going on. Audrey doesn't seem to want James to win the veto and take down Jason.
Later: more crying from Shelli. She cries in bed with Clay. In DR, Shelli says that she admires Audrey, but doesn't want to be the one to send her home. Clay says that when he wins HOH next week (HA), he will send out Audrey.
The POV game is setup like Saved by the Bell. They will be told to pour chemicals in beaker, and have to do it in the right order to win. The last person standing gets the veto. They are then shown chemicals, and have to pour in the third one shown. Everyone gets the first round. Vanessa said that she isn't going to try to remember the color, just the first letter. Then she can spell words. James gets his chemical wrong, and it explodes in his face. Shelli throws the competition and she is eliminated. They are now on round four. Meg is out next. Round five: and both Johnny Mac and Jason are removed. So Vanessa wins the POV.
Then there's another episode of the Whackstreet Boys. The three of them seem to put energy into it.
Then there's more of Audrey out in the backyard going on and on about how she has no one who is supporting her, and people are out to get her. Clay tells Audrey that she's paranoid. Audrey is hurt that Clay is saying Audrey doesn't appreciate what Shelli did. Audrey claims that she does not remember saying the things that Clay says. Audrey claims to remember everything differently. Audrey says in DR that Clay is trying to push his opinion on her because he's an asshole. Clay says that he can't believe that Audrey won't admit that she had Clay swear on his life that Shelli won't backdoor him. Audrey comes to the HOH room, and Clay doesn't want to let Audrey in. But Audrey insists that Shelli mediate. Shelli tells Audrey that for three weeks Audrey has been safe, why does Audrey question them now. Shelli is offended that Audrey says that no one has supported her. Clay leaves. Then Audrey calls Vanessa an amazing manipulator--look at what happened with Jeff.
Then we see Audrey wrapping herself up. The veto meeting starts, and Audrey refuses to attend. Vanessa uses the POV on Jason, and Shelli nominates Audrey. Johnny Mac says that he doesn't have to do anything because Audrey will go out. Jason says he feels bad for Audrey because she's not taking the nomination well.
Sunday, July 19, 2015 -- Evening
There has been tons of action in the BB house this afternoon with a huge blow up between Shelli, Clay, Vanesa, and Audrey, and it looks like Audrey will be the replacement nomination. This should result in lots of action in the house, and it's a good reason to get the live feeds.
The show started with the action after the HOH competition. Liz is excited because she is close to playing with her twin. Audrey said it's a wonderful comeback for her because whatever she has done is working, and Audrey feels safe this week. Jackie is hoping that losing Jeff won't make her a target. Liz is very excited at winning, and she gets a hug from Austin. Austin wants to talk to Liz about the votes, and wonders who the shady votes are. Austin thinks it's Audrey who voted for James. Liz admits that she had a connection with Jeff and not James, and that she is keeping her vote a secret.
We see video of Steve talking to himself and us about how people are talking about him throwing the HOH. Meanwhile Jason and Audrey are talking, and Jason says that he's sure he is going up because of the twin thing. Audrey is a mushroom, in the dark, and has no clue what he is talking about. HOH room reveal, and LIz is going to keep a close eye on Jason and Johnny Mac because they are in for the twin. Meanwhile, Johnny Mac is trying to look at the pics to figure out the cap. Then Shelli gets a really stupid letter from her dog. Puke!! Jason says that the dog's letter is probably more intelligently composed than Clay can write. Liz gets a letter from her mom telling her not to cry because Liz is an ugly crier. Johnny Mac thinks there's not a lot of emotion with the letter and that it supports the twin theory.
Then we see a musical put on by Jason, Audrey, Shelli, and Meg. And back to the HOH room, and talk about the nominations between Shelli, Liz, Clay, and Austin. They think James and Jason are the big targets for the week. Liz mentions Audrey, and Austin says that Audrey is a target for the other side of the house. They then talk about the hinky vote.
Jackie and Austin talk, and Jackie claims she put her life on hold. Jackie wants to make sure that Austin knows that although Austin didn't get along with Jeff, he doesn't need to worry about her. Austin says he's on Jackie's side, although she may be a pawn. Austin thinks he can get something alliance-wise with Jackie. Jackie is confused and sees the talk about pawns as a threat. Shelli says that Jackie is okay with her. Jackie tells Shelli about Austin and let's Shelli know that Austin said that Jackie might be a pawn. This worries Shelli. Vanessa and Shelli go to talk in the second HOH room. Shelli tells Vanessa that Austin warned Jackie. Shelli wants to be careful with conversations in front of Austin because Shelli doesn't trust him. Shelli is concerned because she is afraid if Liz is sole HOH that Austin will be in charge.
There is a lot of talk about who to put up in the HOH house, and there is talk of putting up Johnny Mac. As Johnny Mac leaves to talk to Clay, James says to Jason that they should know Johnny Mac is not the target. Clay says that he feels bad about putting Johnny Mac up, and in DR, Johnny Mac says "don't put me up if you feel bad." Johnny Mac is getting tired of this game of putting him up and having him throw the competition.
Shelli talks to Audrey about who is throwing Shelli's name out. Audrey claims that it is Jason because Audrey thinks Jason is a threat to her game and she wants Jason out. Jason expects to be nominated, and Jackie is nervous too. Time for the nominations. Liz nominates James and Jackie. Shelli nominates Jason and Johnny Mac. Jason feels so angry because there is no proof that he would go for Shelli and Clay. James says that he is not someone to be played with, and he'll be back after them.
Liz claims that Jackie was fishing for answers, which really didn't seem the case. Liz told Jackie that she was safe, but made it seem like it was Jackie. Then Jason talks to Shelli, and he's really pissed that Audrey went to Shelli and lied about Jason going after him. Shelli tells Jason to dethrone her because she doesn't want him to go home.
Liz is called to the diary room, and Austin hugs her good bye. The twins make the switch, and Liz shows Julia the key. Julia is okay with Liz voting for Jeff because she knows LIz liked him. Liz says she is flirting with Austin to keep him as an ally, not because she likes him. Jason and Meg talk about the Battle of the Block, and Jason feels that Johnny Mac may be throwing the competition, even if it's not good for his game.
Audrey is concerned that Jason is fuming because Audrey had something to do with it. Shelli talks to Audrey, and Audrey says that she didn't say Jason was targeting Shelli, that it was Shelli and Clay who were saying that. Shelli reminds Audrey that Audrey told her that Jason was after her.
Time for the Battle of the Block. The setup is like a grunge band setup. They have an Alice tied up in Chains, and they have to remove the 4 locks, and get Alice to Nirvana. There are 4 keys that they have to find in areas named after 90s rock bands. Jason wants to win the BOB. Johnny Mac wants to take control back and win it. Johnny Mac and Jason had a three key to one lead. They had to break open the pumpkins and that slowed them down. James and Jackie caught up with Jason and Johnny Mac. It's a real battle to find the key, and Jackie and James find the key, and Jason and Johnny Mac are right behind them. James and Jackie won. Shelli is feeling good about remaining HOH. Jason, Johnny Mac, and Liz had to dance around whenever they are called to do so (as some sort of stupid punishment). POV in the next episode.
Thursday, July 16, 2015 -- Evening
Tonight's show started with right after the POV ceremony. Vanessa is sure that she made the right choice. Audrey tried to seem sympathetic, but she's happy. Jeff says that he won't go down without a fight. Jason is super-annoyed that Audrey isn't on the block. James and Jeff both hate to be competing against each other. James said that he doesn't care about what happens because he has plenty of hot girls outside waiting for him. Jackie made an appearance about how Jeff being targeted is bad for her game. I didn't know she had one. Jeff doesn't realize that Austin wants him out because Austin thinks that Jeff is competing for Liz's affections. Jeff tells Austin that he will fight for Austin, but Austin is against Jeff. Jason asks Clay about the vote. Jason says that he trusts James more, and Clay says that Jeff lies. Meg would like to get James out because he's more likable, might be harder to get out later. James has won things before. Jeff talks to Clay, and Jeff admits that he is threatened by the fact that Clay and Shelli are working together. In DR, Clay says that he's unsure right now. Jeff then talks to Shelli to see if she has it in her heart to keep him in the game. Jeff cries crocodile tears to Shelli saying he got caught up in the game, and he went too far. "Boo-hoo! I messed up!" Shelli doesn't want to send him home, and calls him sweetie and hugs him. Then Jeff goes to talk to Jackie. Jeff tells Jackie that Shelli is emotional, and he had to act up the emotions for Shelli.
Twin twist: the twins aren't voting for Jeff. Austin thinks he has a great relationship with both, but really likes Liz, and even showed date night. Then Liz was joking about loving Steve. Liz's mom told her that girls and guys can't be friends, especially girls like Liz. Then Jeff, who still isn't really sure about the twins, is really trying to get Liz's vote. Liz thinks that she can control Jeff, even though Julia says to stay away from Jeff. Then Jeff confronts Liz about the twin twist, but Liz denies it. Jeff and Liz go under the covers when Austin shows up. Austin gets pissed, and Austin is really upset that Jeff and Liz were under the covers. Austin wants to know what is going on, and talks about it with Audrey and Vanesa. When Austin asks Liz about it, Liz says that Jeff was under the covers asking about the twin thing. Liz thinks she has control over the situation, and she things Jeff can be used to her advantage, and she doesn't like Austin trying to control her.
Time for the eviction vote. James says he's sorry they are on the block together, and that he loves everyone. He asks everyone to vote to keep him. Jeff says he didn't see it coming. He says it's been a blast, and to vote for whoever gets them the farthest. The votes:
By a vote of 7 to 4, Jeff is evicted. Jeff whispers to Jackie before he goes about winning it. Julie Chen calls Jackie out as a floater who has done nothing in the house. Julie Chen asked if Jackie thought she was on Amazing Race pit stop. Jeff talks about the Liz liking and said Austin was creepy. Jeff guessed that Jackie and Johnny Mac voted for him, but did not guess Steve or Liz. Austin said that he was Judas against Jeff. Then the twins come on, and said something about voting him out, although Liz voted out James.
- Jackie evicts James
- Austin evicts Jeff
- Johnny Mac evicts James
- Meg evicts Jeff
- Clay evicts Jeff
- Shelli evicts Jeff
- Steve evicts James
- Liz evicts James
- Jason evicts Jeff
- Becky evicts Jeff
- Audrey evicts Jeff
Time for the HOH competition. It's a question competition where the houseguests answer true or false after watching 90s dance moves. First question was about the number of dancers. James, Jason, Steve, and Clay are out with the first question. Meg and Austin are out with the second question. Liz and Shelli were the only two to get it right and they are the new HOHs.
Liz is looking forward to a letter from her dad, and Shelli wants more pics of family. Jason is asked about the stupid Gronk parties. He hated the one where he fell on the shower door. Johnny Mac is missing his guitar. Audrey says James is the messiest. Then we learn that the 90s will continue in the house.

BB Recap of Party Central
The show started with the aftermath of the BOB competition. Austin tells Vanessa in the HOH room that Jeff thinks he and Austin are best bros. Vanessa is afraid that one of the James or Jeff duo will survive and come after Vanessa. Johnny Mac goes to Vanessa to find out if things are okay. Johnny Mac says that it's like Groundhog's Day where the same thing happens over and over: BOB and POV. James and Johnny Mac then talk about the BOB competition, and James admits that he was pretty bad. James thinks things are still okay, and he says he wasn't worried, but changed it to he won't worry once Audrey is up on the block. Meanwhile, Clay goes to talk to Vanessa, and she asks if Jeff or James are onto the plot. Clay asks which is supposed to go home. Vanessa says Jeff and then switches to James, and the Jeff talk sort of gets Clay thinking. Vanessa wants to keep the nominations the same because she doesn't want to get blood on her hands.
Twin twist. Liz and Julia talk, and Lis tells Julia that Julia has to be bubbly. Julia says that she can't add like Liz. Liz also tells Julia to cover her teeth.
Audrey goes up to talk to Vanessa and Austin, and they both reassure Audrey that she is safe for this week. Vanessa says that Audrey is her friend, and Austin says in DR that Audrey is a bigger target than him so he wants to keep her around.
Jeff goes up to the HOH and asks if Austin is sleeping up there. Austin says yes, but that Vanessa is doing her own thing to supposedly get Audrey out. Jeff says he loves Clay but Shelli is a problem. Austin says that Jeff is running his mouth not knowing where people's loyalty lie, because Jeff bad-mouths Shelli.
Time to select for the POV competition. Vanessa picks Shelli. Johnny Mac gets house guest's choice, and he chooses Austin. James is hoping to not pick Audrey, and then he does. Jason is mortified because of course Audrey gets chosen. Vanessa says that Audrey does not realize that going to talk to Vanessa is a problem because it could get people talking. Vanessa and Shelli tell Audrey that if Audrey wins to keep the nominations the same. The POV competition is one of those two people challenge competition. It's the dice competition, where a number is spun on a wheel. The house guest has to get off the platform in the huge die, and then get back with the number on the top. Vanessa is first and challenges Audrey. Vanessa tries to make it look really hard and throws it to Audrey, who wins. John is next, and he challenges Audrey. He still thinks Audrey is the backdoor pick. John had to learn visual perception as a dentist, and he won his round. James challenges Austin. Both of them seem to have problems with this one. Austin wins. James isn't very good at competitions lately. Clay wants James out. Shelli is next and challenges Austin. Shelli can barely move the die, and Austin wins. It's down to Austin and Johnny Mac. Austin doesn't want to win, and Johnny Mac just beats him. In the DR, Johnny Mac yells with the Veto.
Johnny Mac says in DR that he is tired of being a pawn. James says to Johnny Mac that he did not want to be on the block with him. Vanessa then accuses Austin of throwing the competition to Johnny Mac. Vanessa is really pissed because she she doesn't want to put up someone else. Vanessa cries like a baby because she threw the competition to Audrey. It's really intense, and I think if I were Austin, I would have beaten Vanessa with a pillow. Austin says that he doesn't like people calling him a liar, and Vanessa says that she doesn't like people not doing what she wants them to do. I'm rolling my eyes at the insanity that is Vanessa.
Some stupid Gronk party clips. Basically, when Gronk tells them they have to do something, they all have to go and do whatever Gronk says or they will be a have not. It's really stupid and has no impact on the game. I won't waste space on it, but I did get good pics.
Jason was in HOH with Vanessa, when Jeff goes up to talk to Vanessa. Vanessa says it's hard because she wants to do what is right, and that Vanessa is a champion for causes like Audrey's. Jeff tells her that Audrey has been doing things that put a target on her back. Jeff thinks it's mind boggling that Vanessa wants to get rid of James. Jeff goes down to Clay and Jason that Audrey won't go up. As Jeff says, this is exhibit A where Audrey has brainwashed another person. Jeff also tells James, and then Jeff asks Austin when Vanessa's plan shifted from Audrey to James. Jason tells Jeff that Austin was lying. Jason says in DR that Austin's eyes showed the lie and that Austin is in league with Vanessa. Jeff and Clay whisper that Austin is in with Vanessa, and Austin goes up to convince Vanessa that Jeff is against him. Audrey is there, and tells Austin to call out Jeff. Austin goes down to Jeff, and asks if Jeff is throwing him under the bus. Jeff asks why he would throw Austin under the bus. Jeff tries to say he is annoyed that everyone is talking about him. Jeff denies says that Austin is a target for him. Vanessa says that Jeff said he couldn't work with Shelli and Clay. Vanessa wanted to have an excuse to put up Jeff, and the argument gave it to her.
Time for another Takeover, and the houseguests learn that if they won a competition, they can go on the Gronk Park cruise. Meg, Jason, Austin, Vanessa, and Johnny Mac get to chug a drink from a cup. Austin has nothing. Jason also has nothing, but Meg won the cruise. Yawn!
Time for the POV ceremony. In the middle of the ceremony, there's another call to party, and the houseguests make a lame, sorry attempt at it. Vanessa puts up Jeff claiming that he lied to a roomful of people at her expense. Jeff says that this came out of complete left field, and Jeff says that Vanessa thinks she is doing a good strategic move, but it's just a lame attempt to placate Audrey.
Monday, July 13, 2015 -- Afternoon
I finally got a chance to watch yesterday’s episode of Big Brother. Although I knew all the action, I wanted to see how CBS presented the things that went down. The show started after the HOH, with Austiin claiming that he was going to be Judas, and suggesting that Audrey may not be the target. Meanwhile Audrey admits that she has not been getting along with Vanessa. Up in the HOH room, in the dark, Vanessa is freaking out because of the twin twist. Julia is in bed with her, and admits that she is switching with her twin Liz. Julia admits that only Day and Vanessa have said anything about the twin twist with her. Julia feels a huge weight off her chest by admiting to Vanessa that she is not Liz. Vanessa wants to pull other people in to protect Liz, and she tells Shelli and Clay. Vanessa wants to protect Liz. Julia told Vanessa about both coming in after five weeks. They are all happy because they think it will add to their numbers. Julia tells Shelli and Clay that it is five evictions, not five weeks. They tell Julia not be alone with James, Jason, or Audrey. Shelli is excited because the twins are in the same sorority. When Vanessa tells Austin, the guy who has been macking on Liz, he is shocked, and admits in DR that he is an idiot. He is the only one who did not know because everyone was talking about it--except maybe Audrey, who is also in the dark. Austin found out before the eviction, and he went up to the HOH room with Clay and Shelli and admits that he is shocked. So the six person alliance is Austin, Liz, Julia, Vanessa, Clay, and Shelli. Julia is excited that Austin and Vanessa won HOH, because they should be secure now.
Meg thinks it will be an easy week in the BB house because everyone is out to get Audrey. Jason realizes that he has not spoken any game to either Austin or Vanessa. Meg is clueless because she does not realize what is going on. Jeff did not realize that there were two HOHs and did not know who was the HOH. Julia tells Clay that at least she feels safe. Julia and Liz hug, and then for the first time, Julia talks about the twins with Austin. Austin says that he wants to protect Liz to keep her safe. James and Jeff talk about pawns because they will have to backdoor Audrey. James says that he knows it won't be Liz or Vanessa, so he thinks that either he or Jeff will be the pawn. James does admit that he is shaking in his boots. Austin seems to spend a lot of time without a shirt. Austin realizes that if Audrey goes out the door, he might be the next target. Vanessa thinks that Jeff is the best person to take out because, as Vanessa says, Jeff can sell ice to an eskimo. The two talk about nominations, and Austin thinks it's great to be HOH with Vanessa because they are on the same page.
Time to see the HOH room. Vanessa shows off her girlfiriend and dog. Austin has baby pictures of himself and pics of his dad and brother. Clay says that Austin is the man for him because he has many tastes. Austin has a Clay Akin CD, and Clay loves that. Then we get to see another twin exchange, where Julia tells Liz that she has told people about it, such as Vanessa, Austin, Clay, and Shelli. Julia tells LIz to stay away from James and Jeff. Liz goes to the HOH room and tells her two besties, Vanessa and Austin that she is Liz. Clay comes in to see Liz, and Clay and Vanessa says that Liz has a group. These people are stupid because they don't realize that a pair is never good to keep. Liz is told that she is not as skinny as Julia, so she has to stop eating gummy bears. Then Shelli comes in and acts stupid. I am getting tired of the Liz love fest. There's no way you want twins to come in because they are sure votes for each other. Shelli thinks that it's a two for one deal.
We saw Clay and Steve break the hammock. Then James, Jackie, John, and Jeff talk about the twins, and John says that he saw that number 9 tooth on one of them is a crown. He says you can tell because of the color of the tooth. Johnny Mac can tell which is which from the crown. They go to the HOH room, and Johnny Mac is trying to pretend to take pics. He tries to get Liz to smile, but she won't smile. As Johnny Mac says, Liz is either really bad at this game or really good. Liz calls out Jeff and says that he is acting like something is up. Jeff then goes to ask Austin about Liz and the twin twist. Jeff thinks that he is giving Austin a tidbit that no on else has given him. Then Jeff stupidly tells Austin that Johnny Mac can tell the difference with the crown in the mouth. Austin realizes that he has to get rid of Jeff. Austin and Vanessa talk about trying to backdoor either James or Jeff. Vanessa says to put up one of them on her side with a pawn who will throw it. Vanessa tells Austin to put up Meg, and she is going to put up Johnny Mac. They call up Johnny Mac and offer him protection. Vanessa and Austin promise Johnny Mac to keep him into jury, and to not use him as a pawn. Johnny Mac says when HOH asks, or rather tells, you to do something, you just do it.
Austin reveals his nominations. First is Meg, then Jason. Austin says it's because Meg was called out last week, and there is a bigger design. Vanessa nominates James and Johnny Mac. Vanessa says that James displayed extreme maturity in his HOH, and he knows it is a game. Johnny Mac is asked to do as he usually does: blow away the compeitition. Jason is pissed, and Johhny Mac is upset because James had the first position. Audrey hopes that she doesn't get backdoored. Audrey is clueless. James thinks that Austin and Vanessa will stick to plan, but Meg is really pissed, and James tells her that she will be okay. Then Jason says that it will be okay. Then Austin tries to hug Jason, but Jason doesn't go for it. Austin tells Jason and Meg that Audrey is still the backdoor plan. Jason says that he and Meg are the two weakest, girly types, but they are against manly men. Meg says that would be good at putting on a play or making a fratata, but not competing. Jason says he doesn't trust anyone with a penis. James tells Johnny Mac that they have to put it out. Johnny Mac says in DR that he's going to do all he can to make sure they completely screw things up.
Battle of the Block has a foam party. There are models in the foam, and the house guests have to match up clothes from the bin with the model. Then they, individually, have to lead out the model, through a maze, and the first team with 10 models wins. Since they have to do it as individuals, James has to run in, but he can barely see in the foam. Jason can't see or breathe in the foam. He runs straight into a wall. Each team has one model/partier. Johnny Mac is moving really slow and choking on the foam. Johnny Mac finally gets his person out, and his team is in the lead. He realizes he has to put on the brakes. Meg is having problems finding something to match. James says the only patterns he knows are camo. Meg finds something that matches a guy with a murse. James is really having an issue, and as he says, he is like a deer in the headlights. Jason and Meg are really communicating well. Jason says he is used to pulling boys in the club. Jason and Meg have four people to two. Johnny Mac wonders if James is trying to throw the comp. James gets six nos from girls, and as he says, that's the most nos from girls he has gottten. JohnnY Mac is happy because James looks like he's throwing it for Johnny Mac. Jason and Meg are killing it. They just need one more partier. It's down to Meg, looking for a striped patterned purse. She finds it and gets the girl. Jason and Meg win. Vanessa remains HOH and thinks it's a good spot for her to be in. Austin gets sprayed with foam. James hopes that Audrey is still the target. Johnny Mac says that he is good at doing other people's dirty work, and next time he may be coming for them.
Sunday, July 12, 2015 -- Early Evening
I won't be able to watch the BB show tonight, but I will be watching it tomorrow, and will update then. I already know from the live feeds what is going on. Austin nominated Jason and Meg for the block, while Vanessa nominated James and John. It seems that James and Jeff are her targets, but she has been claiming to others that she will put up Audrey with a backdoor. Well, Jason and Meg won the Battle of the Block, and then Johnny Mac won the POV AGAIN, so Vanessa is trying to turn the house against Jeff, her replacement nomination. As Day told Julie Chen when Day left the house, the people inside don't want to be the one who put up the transgender person. There have also been several lame Gronk parties, including an all-nighter. Nothing seems to really have an affect on the game.
Thursday, July 9, 2015 -- Evening
Tonight was eviction night. Audrey seemed to be supporting Day last night on the live feeds, but there doesn't seem to be much chance that Day will stay. The show started with post POV action. Day called everyone in the house a coward in the DR. Day realizes that no one will vote against Meg. Audrey can't believe that she wasn't nominated this week. Jason is praying for a glimmer of hope, but honestly, he feels like his soul is crushed. Shelli cries crocodile tears because she is sending Day home. Boo-hoo! Meg hopes the twist saves both of them. Day hopes there is a way for the vote to save both, but if Meg goes, bye-bye! The house guests come into the house with a big red phone booth in the house. there will be 15 tips, but they learn that the house guest who gets the lucky call gets to eliminate three votes. Day hopes that this will keep her in the game. Jason got the first call. Clay was saying that he wants seven because that's his lucky number. So Day grabbed the seventh call. Day got the power of the last laugh. She walked out like nothing had happened. Day was losing her mind because she got the lucky call. Day tells Jason that she won the last laugh. Day realizes that she only needs four votes. Day asks Vanessa for her vote. Then she asked Johnny Mac for his vote. Then Day talked to Audrey. As Audrey says, if Day goes that makes Audrey public enemy number one. Day and Audrey shake on it. Shelli tells Clay that he should be okay with Day getting the seventh vote because she is going home, but Clay tells Shelli that Day has been bouncing around. Clay thinks Day won the prize, and that she will stay.
Next up is the Liz and Julia switch. Day says to Jason that it's obvious that there are a pair of twins in the house and that it's Liz. Day noticed that the friendly twin is fatter. That's Liz. Julia is the non-friendly one. Jason agrees that Liz/Julia is always wearing hats and glasses. Jason tells everyone. Jason really broke down the differences. Day and Jason insist to Jeff and James that there are two of them. They talk about how Liz ia always using the same color fingernail polish. Day is trying it figure out how she will use it to her advantage. Day tells Liz to remain calm. Day tells Liz that everyone is saying that Liz is a twin. Julia is the twin in the house, and she can't believe that she and Liz have been outed. Day thinks she has Liz/Julia.
Julie Chen is going to announce the three names who can't vote. They are Becky, Jeff, and Jackie. That's a strange selection. They have to go into the dining room and not participate. Day says that there are strong people and cowards, and that cowards are running the house. Day says she is strong, and will fight for them, or they can keep Meg and have Meg be the beautiful pawn next to them. Meg umed, and said that she would work on her knock-knock jokes. The vote:
With a vote of 7-2, Day is out. Day seemed to know it would be her when the number was mentioned. Jason and Meg gave Day huge hugs. Day came out with a huge smile on her face. Day was crying with Julie. Julie confirmed to Day that Liz was switching out with Julia. Julie asked Day if it was a bad idea to let the others know that Liz was a twin. Day thought that she could scare Liz, but no realizes that she should have gone to Liz first. Day says that the house guests are afraid to nominate the first transgender. As Day says, Audrey will fly to five hundred thousand dollars. Day said that she would have done it exactly the same because that's how she is. Clay claims Day was his girl on day one, and that he has love for her. Audrey makes a snark comment and Day says bye! Jason said that he is going to play the game for day. Julie told Day about Audrey giving her a vote, and Day gave Audrey credit.
- Jason evicts Meg
- Clay evicts Day
- John evicts Day
- Audrey evicts Meg--we when go to commercial break--darn!
- Austin evicts Day
- Liz/Julia evicts Day
- Vanessa evicts Day
- James evicts Day
- Steve evicts Day
It's time for a takeover with Rob Gronkowski. It's Gronk's party week, so there will be no have nots this week. Time for the HOH competition out in the backyard, but after the commercial break.
The house guests have to play a huge game of beer pong, called Gronk pong. The blue cups have the highest numbers, It is doesn't go into a barrel, there are no points. Liz is first, and she gets a 23. Jackie is next, and she gets 0. Jackie is a loser and a waste of space. John is next, and he misses a barrel and gets 0. James also gets a 23. Audrey is next and gets 17. Clay gets a 6. Jeff gets a 14. Becky gets a 0. Austin gets a 28, and he takes the lead. Jason misses the barrels and gets a 0. Meg gets a 1. Steve's ball bounced off a barrel and got 0. Vanessa is last, and she gets a 23. There's a three way tie, and the each get one shot. Liz goes first and get 22. James gets a 35. Vanessa gets 52. Austin and Vanessa are the two HOHs. The question now is who will they nominate?
Wednesday, July 8, 2015 -- Evening
Day figured out the twin twist. She noticed that Liz didn't always look like herself or remember things that happened. Unfortunately, Day told Jason, who quickly spread the rumor through the house. Day went to Liz/Julia, and let her know that she knew about the switch, and she managed to get Liz/Julia's vote. However, even with Day getting the seventh phone call, and being able to eliminate three votes, Day probably won't have enough votes to stay. Johnny Mac used the veto on himself, and Shelli put up Meg, who has too many votes on her side to get voted out.
Meanwhile, the most recent update in the BB house is that they got a setup in the backyard to practice for the upcoming HOH. It's probably going to be a competition where the top two contestants get to be HOH. The setup is a teetertotter, where the house guest puts the ball on the high end. Then as the ball slides down, the house guest pushes on the high end to make the ball shoot off the end and into a colored barrel. We'll have to see how close this is the final competition tomorrow.
Tonight's show started with the post BOB action. Becky went upstairs thinking it wasn't that bad. She just wanted HOH to form new relationships, and then have Shelli do Becky's dirty work of getting Audrey out of the house. Meanwhile Day was alone in the bathroom saying that she had to get it together. She figured out that Johnny Mac threw the competition. Day is also upset that the house is working as a unit to get rid of her. Johnny Mac tells Shelli and Clay that he didn't even do anything because Day's strategy was so bad. Clay tells Johnny Mac that he won't be an expendable pawn. They tell Johnny Mac that they are really excited. then Shelli and Clay go to bed in the HOH room and make out. Jason felt good to be safe, but he was still worried about Day. James tells Jason that Day might be the one who gets out. Audrey is filmed trying to listen through the walls. James thinks that Shelli is going to do what the house wants and backdoor Audrey. James did not think Shelli would send Day home over Audrey. Yes, she would. The twins twisted.
Lis and Julia switch, and Julia is complaining about the smell of the mess in the kitchen. Time to pick players for veto. Shelli picked Houseguest Choice, and obviously, she picked Clay. That pair really annoys me. Jason calls them Hercules and the Princess. Johnny Mac picks Meg. Day picks Steve, even though she really wanted to pick Jason. Jackie is going to be the host of the competition. After, Audrey talks to Clay. Audrey tells Clay that she will always work with Shelli and Clay. Clay says that he's out to get rid of Day. Audrey says in DR that she will do whatever it takes, and calls him Thunderbuns. Day tells James that the house has flipped, and that she is going out. Day realizes that no one will take her out. Day realizes that she is going out because she outed Audrey and her games. Day has to win the POV, and unfortunately, she doesn't.
Time for POV competition, and Becky still thinks Audrey is going to be backdoored. They will be shown a picture of an assistant, and then shown it a second time with something missing. They compete in rounds with two people, and the first to come out the room with the stuff with the missing piece wins the round. Shelli quickly ran and got the pool, but Kathy Griffin's pic has it. Day is picking up random pieces, but Johnny Mac gets the unicycle and wins the round. Then John picks Steve who picks Clay to compete against him. The game is really lame. Clay realizes that the rubber duck is missing, and makes a mess of the room to bring back the rubber duck. Steve didn't want to win and get attention on himself. Clay picks Meg who picks Shelli. Meg thinks that Shelli should beat her because Shelli is an interior designer and should have attention to detail. Shelli is first to ring in with the wrong piece, and Shelli is eliminated. Meg is annoyed at Shelli's stupidity. Meg picks Johnny Mac who picks Meg. Johnny Mac got it while Meg hadn't even moved. Day wants Johnny Mac to win and take himself off so Audrey goes up. So now it down to Johnny Mac and Clay. Johnny Mac instantly sees the giraffe is missing, and he gets it before Clay even moves. Day hopes that Shelli puts Audrey up against her. Shelli doesn't want to put up a replacement. Shelli and Clay are annoying idiots.
Clay and Shelli are in the HOH room, and Clay wants Day out because he tells Shelli it is better for Shelli's game because Day and Jason can rally the troops. Clay says they need to get everyone together to keep Johnny Mac, and Johnny Mac not use the veto. Shelli is worried about Becky, and calls her up to tell Becky that Shelli wants Day out. Becky says that she does't like Audrey because Audrey has been making up stories about people. Clay doesn't like Day because Day stood up to him when Clay was acting like an ass to Day. Becky says that she has to trust Shelli. Shelli tells James and Jason that she can't lay down and die. James says that if they don't put Audrey up, the will know what time it is. Vanessa also doesn't want to go on the block, and doesn't want anyone else that is her ally to be up. Shelli keeps on talking about Johnny Mac not using the veto. Shelli and Clay are really stupid asses to think Johnny Mac won't use the veto. Johnny Mac comes in to the HOH room jumping around. Shelli then asks Johnny Mac not to use the POV. BB plays idiot music to show how truly stupid Clay and Shelli are. Johnny Mac looks at them like the idiots they are. Johnny Mac is like in DR saying no, I'm not staying on the block for you. Johnny Mac said that line may work on the ladies in the bar in Texas, but not on him. Austin goes up to HOH, and Shelli asks for Liz. Shelli realizes that she has to come up with a pawn--because Johnny Mac refused to come up with a replacement. Shelli talks to Liz and Austin, and tells Liz that she wants to put up Liz. Liz tells Shelli that Liz doesn't have the votes. Liz/Julia is freaking out. Liz agrees to take one for the team, but then Liz cries to Becky about going up. Austin comes in, and Becky tells Liz/Julia to keep calm. Austin says that Day is not a straight shooter. Austin says that he has to make sure that Liz doesn't go on the block. Becky tells Liz to keep this super quiet. Liz says that she's thinking of Julia, and that she has to work her way out of the mess.
It's nighttime in the BB house, and Jeff goes into bed with Meg, with Jason and James too. Austin comes up with an idea about Meg goes up. Austin says something to Vanessa, and says that Meg and the guys were talking about flipping the house to save Day and get rid of Liz. Vanessa tells Shelli what Austin said. Clay comes into HOH with Austin. Austin said that he thinks Day is trying to setup people against Shelli and Clay. Austin said that he couldn't hear through the way, but that he's afraid that people may be trying to go against Shelli, As Shelli says, if she puts up sweet Meg, who is one of theirs, then they won't get rid of Meg. Clay tells Audrey that she brought some of the things on herself. Clay says he trusts Shelli. Audrey tries to put words in Clay's mouth, and Clay said he's not telling her anything, and Audrey says that she feels that Clay is being condescending. Clay tells Audrey the whole house wants her out. As C;ay says, if it wasn't for him and Shelli, Audrey would be out this week. Clay does tells Shelli that he doesn't trust Audrey. So even though Clay doesn't trust Audrey, he is targeting Day.
Time for the POV ceremony. Audrey has been reassured several times she won't go up, but she doesn't know if she believe it. Shelli is too worried about getting rid of the transgender person, so no Audrey. Johnny Mac takes himself off, and Meg goes up. Meg knew that she might go up as a pawn. Meg thinks it's sucks that she is up so Day has no fighting chance. As Becky says, no one will vote out sweet Meg. As Day says, everyone loves Meg, but she is going to fight till the wheels come off the truck.
Sunday, July 5, 2015 -- Evening
Nominations and Battle of the Block
Day is working in the house to try to get Shelli to put up Audrey, but it won't happen. Shelli is afraid of putting up the first transgender, and she also claims to have loyalty to Audrey. Day hugged Shelli after talking to her, but it's over for Day.
Tonight's BB show started with the post HOH competition. Shelli is really excited because HOH means a whole lot. Becky hopes to make the most out of the game with Shelli. Clay is stoked that Shelli is HOH because Clay knows that Shelli will do whatever he wants. Day admits that she is not happy about Becky and Shelli winning because she doesn't trust them. Vanessa is feeling happy, and she thinks Audrey is the big target. The reason Vanessa doesn't like Audrey is because Audrey tried to claim that Vanessa was behind everything. Audrey says that Vanessa, Becky, LIz, and Jackie are together. Vanessa was really upset because it's not even true. Vanessa goes to Audrey and Day and says that Day told Audrey that there was an all girls alliance. Day says that Audrey is the person who started the all girls alliance rumor, and is blaming it on Day. Audrey claims that she felt in a horrible position if people started collecting the dots. Day calls a house meeting and outs Audrey. Vanessa says that everyone is pathological and lying. Jason says that Audrey is over playing the game and she got caught. Day starts calling out how Audrey started all the rumors. Audrey denies that she said the things that everyone knows she said. Vanessa said that she hated everyone targeting Audrey. Audrey says in the DR that everything could have been worse, but her strategy is to lay low and play dead. Day knows that either Shelli or Becky will put her up. As Day says, Audrey's relationship with Shelli is shaky, but not broken.
Time to see the HOH rooms. Day admits that she doesn't want to see them. Shelli reads her letter, and everyone awws. Day pretends to be happy, but inside as she says, she is yelling "help me." Shelli and Becky talk. Becky says that everyone hates Audrey. Shelli says that she doesn't know, and tries to turn it on the Becky's decisions. Shelli agrees with Becky that Audrey should be the backdoor option. Becky says that they should choose who is best for both of them. Becky talks to Jason, and Jason says he's okay with going up since he put her up. Becky tells Jason the target is Audrey. She says the same thing to Austin. Then she says the same thing to James that Audrey needs to go. Becky also tells Johnny Mac that she isn't sure about the pawns. Then Becky tells Steve that the backdoor is Audrey, and tells Steve not to repeat it. Then Clay goes and talks to Jeff, and says that you can't trust Audrey because you aren't sure who will go up. Clay says that he can't trust Day, and he wants her out. Meg comes into the storage room. Audrey goes to talk to Clay, Jeff, and Meg. Audrey claims she has no one, and says that if they give her the opportunity to show them that she won't go after them, but will go after Day. Audrey keeps on saying she wants to prove herself. Jeff says that Audrey is using Clay as her puppet because she is the master manipulator. Clay tells Shelli that Day has no trust in Shelli or Clay, and that they have to go after Day. Shelli agrees that she would like Day to go home. Shelli is afraid that Jason and Day will campaign again Shelli. Shelli wants someone to be a pawn to go up with Day to throw the competition and keep Day on the block. Clay wants to go up, but Shelli won't go for that. Shelli thinks that Johnny Mac is the person to go up with Day. Shelli tells Johnny Mac that she wants Johnny Mac to go up as the pawn and to throw the competitions (Battle of the Block and POV). Johnny Mac wonders why he has to be the pawn and not Clay. Johnny Mac doesn't know which way he wants to go.
Back in the backyard, Liz, Jackie, Jason, Day, Vanessa, and Becky are in the backyard, and tells them about how she got hit by a train in the face. She broke her wrist, leg, fractured teeth, and ripped off her lip. That explains the scar marks on Becky's face. Becky jokes that she is a train wreck. She also said there was no plastic surgery.
It's time for nominations, and Steve knows that he is probably going up by Becky. Jason thinks it's easy for Becky to put him up. James isn't sure because he was HOH last week. Shelli goes first and she puts up Johnny Mac and Day. Then Becky puts up Jason and Steve. Audrey has this weird, annoying look to her eyes. She has like freaky eyes, and it sort of freaks me out. Audrey is ecstatic that she didn't go up. Becky says again that there are four pawns with Audrey as the backdoor. Shelli says that he has no play to get rid of Audrey, but does plan on getting rid of Day. Clay is happy that he has such control over Shelli that he's effectively HOH.
James wants to know why Audrey isn't on the block. Day and Jason tell James that it's because they are the targets because they outed Audrey as the master manipulator and liar. Becky tells Steve and Jason that she wants them to win, and Becky says that as long as they lay low, everyone wants Audrey out of the house. Jason doesn't 100 percent believe it. He wants to win BOB to make sure he is safe. Shelli and Clay are in the HOH room, and Audrey goes up to ask if there is a plan B if Steve or Jason throw the competition. Shelli says that it's not her plan to out Becky's plan because it will blow up in Shelli's face, and she will go home. Johnny Mac and Day talk about how they have to sleep and not be groggy. Johnny Mac is not sure if he should throw the BOB because it will bring him new people to play with. Day asks Johnny Mac if she can trust him, and he lies and says yes.
Audrey is the Master of Ceremonies for the BOB. They go to the backyard, which is setup like a TV set. They will be crew for the Ginger Fever movie that they spoofed on Thursday. They will have a setup of nine shots. The pair have to match up the nine cameras for the shots. They won't know which camera is for which number shot. Shelli talks about Johnny Mac throwing the BOB, and Johnny Mac isn't sure. Becky thinks that Shelli is into backdooring Audrey. The pair are together like a Siamese twin. Jason and Steve turn on the first two cameras that are cameras one and two. They start concentrating in shots. Day comes up with a plan to turn on all the cameras first and then focus. Johnny Mac says Day's strategy is so bad that it's like she is throwing it for him. Jason and Steve have a good strategy to turn on two cameras at a time, and then to just focus them on the items that are measured. Day notices that Johnny Mac is just there, throwing the competition. Jason and Steve are really working well together. Shelli sees that John and Day are doing a really bad job. Jason and Steve just hope they have it right, and they do. They win the BOB. Jason wants to save Day. Shelli says that Becky's backdoor plan is going to take an unexpected turn. Becky thinks she has everything she wants, and that Shelli will take out Becky's target for her. Johnny Mac thinks it's awesome that he didn't have to do anything to throw it because Day was so bad. Day cries in DR that she has to win POV or they will send her home. The POV Ceremony will be tomorrow, so I'll know then who goes up, but it might be Liz or Vanessa, or someone else. Shelli is all over the place on this one.

Tonight's the first eviction, and Jace has done nothing in the house except alienate people. So Jace is going to be going home tonight.
The show started immediately after the POV ceremony. Jackie is happy that Jace is on the block because he's a bigger target than she will ever be. Clay and Shelli console Jace, and Audrey is afraid that Jace is going to go off. Jace thinks it's worse than Y2K. Austin thinks something fishy is going on and that he needs to make sure he is safe next week. Jace goes up to talk to James in the HOH room. James tells Jace that he doesn't want to compete against Jace. James tries to explain that Jace almost beat him at HOH. Jace insists it's personal. James tries to explain that it's a game. Jace says that he put his faith in James for no good reason. Audrey goes to talk to Jace. Audrey tells him that he was always the target. Then Audrey starts talking over him, and Jace tells her that she is always running everything. Jace says that he hopes everyone notices that Audrey is the puppet master, running everything. Jace tells Austin later that he will fight.
Jace talks to Clay about how Clay will go farther with Jace still in the house. Jace talked to John about how Jace will always be the target.l Jace tells John that the only thing Jackie brings to the game is boobs. Jace then goes to the Have Not room to talk to Liz and Vanessa. Then Jace talks with Steve. Jace keeps on telling Steve that Jace Steve's game will be better with Jace in the house, but Steve can't see how Jace will get seven votes. Jace then goes in the backyard to talk to people. Audrey alls aside Meg to whisper to Meg about talking. Then Audrey goes to Jace and says that everyone in the house knew Jace would be going. Audrey says that Jace wanted to target Jason. Jace said that Audrey is the person who was behind everything. Audrey tells Jace that he is goin home.
Now for the twin twist, which we already know is Liz and Julia. They've switched four times. Julia talks about how hard things were to go in for Liz the first time. Then we saw some of the switches. They only have 10 to 15 minutes to give them info. Audrey says that someone is posing as a twin. Jeff said he has a twin. Liz/Julia are going to swap places. Time for the final statement. Jackie says she loves them all, and that it is a crazy week, blah, love for them, blah, love for game. Jace does soem self promotion, and that he says it sucks that people tricked him, and lied to him. People looked uncomfortable during his speech.
Jace is told that he is evicted with 12 votes. Jace says he loves them all, and they are all amazing people. Jace leaves the house, doing a tumble. Jace guessed that Audrey was the one behind the hinky vote. Jason says that he's glad Jace left because he was a ticking time bomb. Steve said that he wished he stayed. Day said something about stepping on his toes. Austin said that he is going to fight in Jace's honor. Then Julie reveals the twin twist to Jace, so he won't be going back in.

BB Takeover time. It's Kathy Griffin who comes in for the twist. They have to go to the backyard for the HOH. Annoying Kathy Griffin goes on stage with Julie Chen and gets Julie to do a Bro chest bump. I like how Kathy Griffin said that the girls didn't stick to an alliance and are having breakdowns. Kathy is going to be calling the house, and the seventh person to answer the phone will be able to remove three of the votes in next week'e eviction. Now that is cool.
The competition is in two rounds. The winner of each round is HOH. They have to assemble a puzzle to make a new billboard for Kathy Griffin's new film, Ginger Fever. Liz, Steve, Day, Becky, Vanessa, and John are competing first. They have to race the puzzle pieces over one at a time, and then assemble them on the board. Once it is assembled, they have to race back to ring the buzzer. Steve was in the lead, but Becky was the first to complete the puzzle.
Obviously, Audrey, Austin, Clay, Jackie, Jason, Jeff, and Meg are in the second group. Austin is getting all the pieces while some people are putting pieces up as they get them. Shelli was leading from the start, and she is the second HOH. I think this means it's going to be a lame week because Shelli won't nominate Audrey, and Becky is probably weak.
Kathy Griffin is giving the house guests more information about the BB Takeover. Kathy tells them that one of them will get the last laugh at the next eviction. More details are to follow.
Wednesday, July 1, 2015 -- Evening
There has been a ton of action and fighting in the BB house, and Audrey was outed for having her finger in every pie. Audrey is the new house target for the next week, and she's taken to burrowing under covers.
Meanwhile, the show tonight started with the usual recap. Jace asked Steve how he felt, and Steve did not feel good about being on the block. He thanked Jace for thinking of him. John was excited to have won. James asks Jason about votes, and Jason says there are 13 votes, so they need a minimum of seven to get Jace out of the house. As usual, they talk about getting all 13 because the house has to vote together. James talks to Meg, and they start to count votes. Meg is happy to have an official alliance. James goes to Clay because Clay is also from Texas. James asks Clay about an alliance with the two of them, Audrey, Jason, Day (Da'Vonne), and Meg. Day says that the group is temporary and shaky. Day does not want the whole group. James tells the group in the HOH room that Jace has to go home. In the backyard, everyone is hanging out and exercising, and Jace ran out naked to streak, and no one really reacted in a positive way. Austin said in the diary that Jace needs to keep his cool. Austin tries to get Jace to nip it in the bud. As Austin says, they need to talk to the HOH and nip it in the bud. James tells Jace that he takes blood and wipes it on his face like war paint, so James is not afraid of blood. Austin says that nothing has happened, and Audrey tosses out Jason's name as a potential to go up on the block. As Jace and Austin talk about an alliance, James and Audrey seem to be non-committal. Jace and Austin come up with an alliance name of Cloud Town. RME!
It's time to pick for the POV. James picks Becky. Jackie picks John. Steve gets house guest choice and picks Jason (to bond with him in future). Austin is picked to be the Master of Ceremony. James thinks it's sad that Austin and Jace are celebrating. Day is going around the house counting things because she knows there is going to be counting competition in the future. Day walked into one of the bedrooms, and Jeff was asking why she went in "his" room. As Day says, she is a house guest, and she says she can walk around. Day heard Clay and Shelli telling Jeff to check what Day was doing, and Day was pissed that Jeff through it was creepy that Day was looking around. Jeff followed Day up to HOH to do damage control and Day called it as such. Jeff tells Clay that Day is like a puppet master. Clay is frustrated, so he goes upstairs to apologize to Day, and starts by asking "what's going on." Day is hilarious mocking of Clay in the diary room. Day calls Clay on how he and Shelli sent Jeff in there. Day says that she does not like to lied to her face, and she does not like being expected to apologize for his actions. Day got teary eyed as she talked to Audrey telling Audrey that Clay should not be calling her negative, and that Clay should be apologizing to her. Audrey says that inside she is trying to tell Day to calm down. Audrey went to Clay and told Clay that he has to go an apologize to Day because Day was crying. Clay tells Audrey that he wants Day out next week. Clay goes up to the apologize to Day, and she says she appreciated it. Day rolls her eyes, and then whispers to the camera that she knows Audrey went and talked to Clay, and that Audrey is trying to be a puppet master to manipulate Day.
After the commercial break, the house guests see slop and Have Not menu. Vanessa, Liz, Day, and Austin are Have Nots, and the Have Not room is setup like a dentist's office. And then it's time for the POV competition. The yard is setup with a lake and campsite. It's the technotronics competition. They have to find gold nuggets with letters and spell a word. The letters will have point values. The person with the highest points wins. They have 10 minutes to spell the word. Steve wants to make sure he wins the veto to keep himself safe. Jackie says it's really important that she wins because pawns go home. Steve comes up with the perfect word to spell. Jason has some high scoring letters, and James is looking for an A. Jackie has 3 Qs. Audrey thinks Jason and James are killing it. John finishes first. Then James. Steve locks in his word with less than a minute. Everyone locked in. James spelled lifeguards for 8 points. Becky spelled closest for 7 points. Jason spelled zones for 6 points. Jackie spelled judge for 6 points. As Jeff says, Jackie comes up short again. James knows that Steve is smart. Steve spelled trombonists for 12 points. John spelled boogers for 7 points. Steve got the POV. Steve feels relieved. Becky says that she thinks they are the first group to all spell their words right.
Steve tells them that he plays the trombone. Steve tells them that Brendon did the longest word with understanding. Steve goes into the storage room to celebrate. As he says, he has the short term problem solved, but needs a long term solution. Audrey is trying to get more people in the alliance, and that they need numbers. As James says in DR, Audrey, who do you think is HOH??? Audrey gets Shelli, and takes her up to the HOH. Audrey tells Shelli that they want her in the alliance. Meanwhile James and Jason aren't impressed with Audrey's pulling folks into the alliance. Audrey goes at 5 AM to get Jeff, who was trying to make out with Meg. As James says, those 16 person alliances don't have a history of working. Jeff calls Audrey the biggest sketch ball in the world. Audrey wakes up Clay, and then runs to get Meg. Meg claims to be so miserable. Meg feels that she is in a weird, secret book club. Audrey tells them that they all need to be on the same page as they go into battle. James says he is starting to have second thoughts about Audrey and that she may need to go on the block.
Time for POV ceremony, and Audrey hopes Jace goes up. Steve, of course, uses the POV. James says he respects everyone as a game player, and says he came up with decision himself. Jace goes on the block. Austin says that Jace being blindsided means he is being blindsided. Jace seems really shocked. Jace thought he was in an alliance with James, and he cries in the DR.
