BB 17 Day 53 8-10

Post  Banjo on 2015-08-10, 13:00

With Steve having won POV on Saturday, and having taken himself off the block at the POV ceremony, causing Becky to name Vanessa, all of which we'll see on Wednesday's show, the house now "coasts" until Thursday's eviction expected to be Vanessa, who now knows that she has been backdoored and is the real target rather than Shelli. We must watch the live feeds diligently to see how Vanessa reacts to all this. Some fans expect a 'melt down' of sorts, but with Vanessa you never know what you're gonna get. Thursday is a double eviction but it's not possible at this point to predict who will be the second evictee. It all depends on who wins the HOH on Thursday, then the POV and who is nominated and who is saved by the POV. Too many possibilities.....but of course the fans have their preferences.

'Big Brother 17' Recap: Becky Is More Powerful Than a Locomotive

John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

Becky Burgess is a bit of a running joke on Big Brother 17. She refers to herself as "Basic Becky." She barely appears in most episodes, speaks with a simple naivete and just seems to float along. She has no problem admitting she was cast off of Tinder and the most interesting thing about her is that she once got hit in the face by a train. She's even inspired the hashtag #BeckyUpdate because she does so little in the game that any new information about her is worth commenting on.




So it's a huge twist that, this week, not only does Becky take control as HoH, but she has no problem coming up with a master plan to take out a huge player that involves lying, deception and manipulation. It seems after James took on Clelli last week, the HGs have been inspired to start making big moves.

The HoH Competition

In the slip-and-slide competition, Vanessa and the twins keep falling, Austin struggles and Meg is like a grandma, going incredibly slowly. Meg knows she'll lose so she's just competing against Austin not to be the worst. Becky is in the lead from the start and just stays there the whole time. Jackie, Shelli, Julia and Johnny Mac are behind, but Becky is a runaway train.

Becky has such a commanding lead that she takes the Never Not pass (meaning she will never be a Have-Not), then she takes $5,000 and then she takes HoH. Becky is the new HoH! Hell, she could've stopped to make a sandwich in the middle of this comp and still won it.

The Clay and Vanessa Drama

Before Clay's eviction, there were fireworks in the house. Johnny Mac told Clay that he'll vote him out, but he doesn't want to. He thinks Vanessa is in Shelli's head and he wants to put a stop to it. But Clay still trusts Vanessa and wants to mend fences, so he tells Vanessa that James told Johnny Mac to be suspicious of Vanessa.

Vanessa confronts James about it and he denies it. She also talks to Johnny Mac, and he denies that James said that. She believes them and James calls out Clay for throwing him under the bus. Clay gets in James' face and the fight gets heated. Then Vanessa calls a summit with Clay, Johnny Mac and James to get to the bottom of it. Johnny Mac admits that he's the one who is suspicious of Vanessa, but she somehow doesn't believe him and thinks Clay made it up. How delusional is Vanessa that she refuses to believe that Johnny Mac is coming after her even when he tells her that he is?

Vanessa cries and it's absolute insanity. Johnny Mac knows that this is part of her manipulations. It all comes down to Clay trying to get Vanessa and Johnny Mac to team up against James, but it backfired because John isn't as stupid as Clay is and he knows that trusting Vanessa is a bad idea. Vanessa even accuses Clay and Johnny Mac of being related or gay lovers.

Becky Picks a Side

Becky says that Jackie, James and Meg are the people she trusts most in the house and she's excited to tell them about her plan. Elsewhere, Austin and the twins think they're safe, but they're worried about Vanessa. Johnny Mac is happy because he's super tight with Becky and he wants her to target Vanessa. This puts Steve in an awkward position because Johnny Mac and Vanessa are the two people he's closest to and they're now on opposite sides.

Last week, Vanessa made Austin, the twins, Becky, James, Jackie and Meg agree to go after Steve, Johnny Mac and Shelli this week. So Becky wants to "stick" to the plan by nominating two of them, but then she wants to backdoor Vanessa! However, the goal is to completely blindside her by acting like they're all sticking with the plan and going after Shelli.

Becky is a total bad-ass who is very excited to execute this plan, especially since she knows everyone thinks she's so simple and dull and would NEVER expect something so diabolical from her. Jackie, James and Meg are totally on board. They're basically Becky's minions.

Becky's Plan Comes Together

Despite promising that she wouldn't, Becky tells Shelli that her target is Vanessa. Becky lays out her plan and Shelli wants to trust Vanessa, but she's not about to stick her neck out to defend her. Shelli seems to know it's her or Vanessa going this week and now that Clay's gone, her head is in the game and she know it's gonna have to be Vanessa.

When Becky meets with Vanessa, Vanessa tries to make a deal and Becky IMMEDIATELY shuts it down. She doesn't want to hear the words "deal" or "alliance." Becky says she likes short-term plans and wants trust to build organically, not through forced deals.

Vanessa is absolutely perplexed that Becky doesn't want to make a deal with her. She thinks Becky is playing the game all wrong and it might mean she's a potential target. Oh Vanessa, Becky isn't playing a bad game. She's just refusing to play YOUR game.

Becky also fills Johnny Mac in on everything because they're very close, but they're keeping their distance so people don't realize it. Johnny Mac is 200 percent on board with getting rid of Vanessa, who he calls "a really smart Audrey" because he's had a problem with her from week 1.

The Nominations

Becky goes with the plan and nominates Shelli and Steve. She says Clay caused drama that makes her question Shelli and Steve needs to step up his game because he's a superfan who's been laying low. In the diary room, Steve tells us that he IS a superfan, he IS laying low and he DOESN'T have any blood on his hands, all of which is his strategy. And now that Becky has exposed his game, she's his top target.

So it's playing out as expected.



'Big Brother 17' Spoilers: Did Becky Backdoor Vanessa at the PoV Ceremony?
Monday, August 10, 2015

John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

Six HGs have been evicted on Big Brother 17. Four got backdoored, so the Power of Veto ceremony is when all of the real action happens. With Becky in power, was she able to carry out her plan to backdoor and blindside Vanessa?

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 17 spoilers.




Steve won the Power of Veto.

He saved himself. Vanessa is the replacement nominee.

Ah, karma. Two weeks ago Vanessa backdoored Jason and completely blindsided him as well as Jackie, James and Meg. And this week the same thing happened to her. An hour before the PoV ceremony, Becky filled in Austin, listing off her many reasons and saying she was OK with him voting however he wants. He realized he just had to go with it and filled in the twins, telling them to act like they didn't know because it's game over for Vanessa.

The funniest part is that Becky actually seemed to convince Vanessa that she was sticking to the plan to backdoor Johnny Mac. Becky made it clear she wanted Shelli evicted if that happened and Vanessa agreed to "vote with the house," but then Vanessa immediately started scheming on ways to vote out Johnny Mac. Her plan was to get Austin, the twins and Steve to all agree to vote out Johnny Mac and set up Becky as the next target, but that obviously won't happen.

James, Jackie, Meg and Johnny Mac are all on Becky's side to evict Vanessa, and with only eight votes, that's all it takes. Steve seems to be wising up to Vanessa's game as well and will most likely evict her, especially since he's grown closer to Shelli. Now the only question is whether Austin and the twins will stand by Vanessa or throw her to the wolves. Imagine the irony if Vanessa broke her word to protect Austin and now he might not even vote to keep her.

FUN FACTS

-This is Vanessa's first nomination. Austin is now the only HG who has never been nominated while Liz and Julia are the only ones who've only been nominated once.

-Shelli is now the first person of the season to face two eviction votes. No one else has been on the block twice during Thursday's live eviction.

-This is only the second time this season two women have been on the block at the same time. It also happened in week 2 when Shelli was HoH and nominated Meg against Da'Vonne.
