BB Day 74 8-30-15

This is the best thing that could have happened at this point in the game. With careful strategy James could parlay his POV win clear to a Final 2. If Vanessa tries to target Meg for eviction on Thurs. that will be a mistake because she is not as big a comp. threat as several others.



Big Brother 17: Power Shift Brings Added Drama In Week 10
By: Matthew Boyer | August 30, 2015 at 2:30 PM EDT

Finally a power shift on Big Brother 17. After two and a half weeks of the Van Austwins taking over the Big Brother house they’ll now have to deal with a change in their plans which means we get to enjoy the fun of a scramble.

Two weeks ago we saw Liz win HoH and the Veto and last week Austin took HoH while Vanessa snagged PoV. This round we saw HoH yet again fall in to their hands before it was at last time for a change.

Last night James finally broke the great chain of control with his Power of Veto win that sent the Van Austwins scrambling. Vanessa shed some tears while the twins started to panic just minutes after the comp. It’s about time! Big Brother is great with a good power shift to keep one side, any side, of the house from winning for too long. Without that shift it quickly becomes dull to watch one alliance get decimated leaving little hope for changes later when the numbers are too much to overcome.

Now James is assured he’s safe and is prepared to make his feelings known. Heading upstairs to confront Vanessa last night James didn’t waste anytime poking the wasps nest and a provoked Vanessa was an angry Vanessa on the Live Feeds. (Get a Free Trial now.)

Flashback on your Feeds to 11:31 PM BBT 8/29 Cams 3/4 as James is sitting down with Vanessa in the HoH room. James is explaining how he was told by Austin that Vanessa was against James and spreading word that he couldn’t be trusted. When Vanessa presses for more details James says he doesn’t read in to things like she does and adds that Vanessa “remembers every little piece” then uses it against them later. “You play the game too hard,” says James. Uh oh.

Vanessa goes on the offensive at James “Are you insulting me right now?! You’re actually literally insulting me!” She tells James he better leave the room. James just sits there calmly explaining how he’s citing the differences between their games as Vanessa angrily drops f-bombs and asks who he is to critique her methods. Vanessa typically enters two modes in confrontation: anger or tears. I feel bad for the HGs who have to deal with this, but it’s Feeds Gold for us. Better settle in because it’s a long ride until Thursday night.

Right now Vanessa is debating who to send to the Block as a renom because James will most definitely be using the Veto and he’ll be using it on himself despite previous comments that he was considering saving Meg. Who goes up is a bit uncertain though Vanessa has mentioned both Steve and Julia, but may be leaning more toward the latter option. Either way, Vanessa is promising Meg remains her target. I’d say there’s a better choice out there, but I’ll have to write that up later.

Do you think James will be able to navigate this opportunity and keep his closest ally, Meg, in the game? Is Vanessa really willing to let her week be used to evict Meg this close to the end as the bigger threats remain? Choices, choices and we’ve got a much needed power shift to thank.

'Big Brother 17' Spoilers: Who Won the Week 10 Power of Veto?

John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

The Power of Veto hasn't been very important recently on Big Brother 17. For the last three times, it hasn't been used at all, leaving the HoH's original nominees on the block. Who won the PoV this time around?

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. Austin, Liz and Julia were picked to play.

James won the Power of Veto!

Finally, it's going to be used again. James is extremely happy, feeling like it's "righteous" and "karma."

The competition was hide and seek, where each of the HGs had to hide something in the house and then look for each others' one by one, and the house is completely destroyed. Liz and Julia boasted about dumping Meg's stuff everywhere, but of course they complained about people dumping her stuff. Liz, Meg and Vanessa's were found first and it sounds like Vanessa found Austin's by accident. James hid his under a rug.

Obviously this is a terrible situation for Vanessa and she is extremely mad. James will probably save himself (he did mention maybe using it to save Meg beforehand, but she immediately shot that idea down). So Vanessa will need to put someone next to Meg.

Thus far, her top candidates seem to be John, Steve or Julia. She's shown resistance to nominating Johnny Mac because she suspects the AusTwins might vote him out over Meg. Heck, anyone being used as a pawn should be scared of that since she's so bad at competitions.

It should be an interesting weekend of John, Steve and the AusTwins all pleading their cases to Vanessa NOT to be the replacement nominee. And it will be equally interesting to see if the vote flips to save Meg and keep her and James in the game together.

Julia is also furious that James won. She's promised Vanessa that the AusTwins will vote out Meg if John goes on the block, but Vanessa clearly doesn't believe it. Vanessa seems to be trying to plant seeds so she can put Steve or Julia on the block.

FUN FACTS

-James is the fourth person this season ti win multiple PoV competitions, following John, Steve and Vanessa.

-James is the first person ever to win 2 HoHs, 2 PoVs and 2 BoBs, as no one did it last year when the Battle of the Block was introduced.

-James now has 6 competition wins. Vanessa has 5, Liz, Steve and John have 4, Austin has 2, Meg has 1 and Julia has 0.

-James is the 18th person to win the "double/double," meaning at least 2 HoHs and 2 PoVs. Vanessa has also done this.
