BB Day 73 8-29-15

Post  Banjo on 2015-08-29, 14:28

If someone doesn't 'wake up' soon Vanessa will make it all the way to the Final 2, although it is probably true, as she admits, that the jury wouldn't vote her as the winner of the $500 k. She is by far the wealthiest person in the house this season, having won over $ 4 million as a professional poker player....if she still has it .... scratch



'Big Brother 17' Spoilers: Who Are the Week 10 Nominees?

There are no more second chances on Big Brother 17. Now that a member of the jury has returned to the game, every eviction is permanent as we're less than a month away from the finale. So who's in danger this week?

SPOILER WARNING: This article contains Big Brother 17 spoilers. If you want to watch the live feeds and help support BuddyTV, sign up here.

John is the returning juror and Vanessa is the new HoH.

She nominated James and Meg.

At this point, Vanessa is solidifying her position with everyone EXCEPT these two nominees. She obviously has Austin's Angels and the Scamper Squad, but it seems she was somewhat genuine in her desire to work with Johnny Mac last week. Vanessa has even talked to Steve and John about working together as a trio that will be able to beat out the AusTwins down the road.

Vanessa is also making big plans for her endgame. Miss "Solo Dolo" now has Final 2 deals with Austin, Steve and Julia. She is spending a lot of time talking about how much everyone in the jury hates her and she'd be a perfect person to take to the finale. She definitely needs to do that work since she's won three HoHs, two PoVs and got backdoored as the target, yet campaigned and got the entire house to vote to keep her when Becky was HoH. It's definitely a "masterful game."

The target flips back and forth, like the last two weeks, but James seems to be the one going to the jury house if he doesn't win the Power of Veto. Vanessa definitely doesn't want the PoV to be used because if it is, she needs a replacement nominee. Austin and the twins assume it would be Johnny Mac, but Vanessa is already trying to plant seeds that it should be Steve or even Julia (because she knows the AusTwins would probably vote out John if he goes up).

The Have-Nots

It's the final week of Have-Nots and Vanessa had to pick four HGs, meaning half the house is on Slop. John volunteered and she also chose Julia, Meg and James. In other words, Vanessa, Steve, Austin and Liz are the only people who aren't Have-Nots.

The fact that Austin and Liz weren't chosen and refused to volunteer really ticked off James and Meg and made them suspicious. Austin and Liz haven't done it since week 6 while James and Meg were Have-Nots in week 7 and John was a Have-Not in week 8.

FUN FACTS

-This is the fourth nomination for both James and Meg. Steve also has four while John has six. Meanwhile, Austin's Angels (Austin, Liz, Julia and Vanessa) still have a combined total of only two nominations between the four of them.

-If Austin isn't the replacement nominee (which he won't be), he will survive 11 evictions without ever going on the block. Last year's winner Derrick Levasseur is the only other person to ever do that (he survived 15 rounds). Austin would also be guaranteed to make it to Day 78 (Thursday's double eviction) without going on the block. Only Derrick (97 days) and season 3 finalist Jason Guy (78 days) have made it that long without a nomination.

-Only eight HGs have ever survived 11 evictions without ever facing a vote. This year, Austin, Liz and Julia could all join that list if none of them are the replacement nominee.

-Vanessa is the 20th person to win three HoH competitions in a single season, but only the sixth woman to do it. The others were season 5's Nakomis, Janelle Pierzina from All-Stars, season 13 winner Rachel Reilly, season 15's Aaryn Gries and Nicole Franzel last year (though technically, Nicole was dethroned twice).

-Vanessa is also only the 17th person ever to win five HoH and PoV competitions in a single season.

-This season there were 28 total Have-Nots, the second highest ever (season 15 had 29 while last year only had 27). Steve, John, Julia, James and Meg were all Have-Nots three times, joining the list of 17 former HGs who had to do it at least three times since Have-Nots were created in season 11. Jace and Jeff were the only HGs who were never Have-Nots.

Big Brother 17: Making The Case For Keeping James
By: Matthew Boyer | August 29, 2015 at 2:00 PM EDT

Big Brother 17 will wrap up in less than four weeks and we still have eight Houseguests remaining including a “strong fortress” trio that seems to just now be coming to the forefront of Vanessa Rousso’s attention and concerns. This week her moves may be jeopardizing any last chances to turn the odds.


Meg Maley and James Huling on Big Brother 17 – Source: CBS

Yesterday I spent a lot of time considering the situation of this week’s nominees in respect to Vanessa’s game position as I had just written about her pushing ahead to the end with her alliance consisting of a showmance and twin sisters. Not a great move, I’d argue. Could keeping James Huling around be what she needs to correct the crash course she’s on?

James and Meg are up on the Block with one guaranteed to head to Jury unless they can pull off a Veto win, but maybe someone else would save them. Or at least maybe someone should save James. Here’s why I think Vanessa needs James to stay.

Vanessa knows, or at least she should know, that Austin won’t be betray Liz and likely not Julia by extension. Liz won’t betray Julia and probably not Austin to help Vanessa. Julia will not betray Liz, but I think she would go against Austin in a F3 with Vanessa over him. Those aren’t good odds for Vanessa especially when her entire game could rest of Julia winning something.

This week Vanessa decided to win HoH and promise the Austwins complete safety and no visits to the Block instead of letting JMac take it after he already told her he’d be ready to make a big move. That big move could have been going after the Austwins.

Now with Vanessa promising to keep Austwins out of danger this week she kicks the can one round farther down the road. Realistically it wasn’t just the promise she made but the game she’s playing. She can’t be the one to pull the trigger on them. So if she can’t do it this week then she won’t do it until it’s either her or one of them walking out the door. That means she needs someone else to win HoH and do the dirty work.

Who is left that could do that for Vanessa? Right now she’s got JMac and Steve. Steve has suggested he’d be willing to make a big move, but I’m going to agree with John that John is the one who would be willing to do it sooner. Would anyone be surprised if Steve won HoH next week, panicked, and then put up Meg with JMac?

That leaves John as a near sure shot to get the Austwins targeted next week. John vs the Austwins. Not terrible odds if you cancel out Julia, though she’s bound to eventually trip and fall in to a victory at some point. Of course that logic would cancel out Meg too, assuming she survives over James. That would keep it at 1 (JMac) vs 2 (Liztin) is still a tough gamble. But guess how Vanessa could make that 2:2? Yep, by keeping James.

Vanessa needs James for more than just targeting the Austwins though. Say Vanessa’s plan fails and an Austwin wins HoH next week. Would they target Meg? No, they’d go after JMac, Vanessa’s best chance of breaking up the Austwins. Now what if James was still there? James and JMac would go up then Vanessa could work to sway votes to keep JMac over James and try again next week to get John in the HoH room. It’s an extra round to try and make the Austwins split happen.
