BB Day 76 9-1-15

It looks like Meg will be the first evictee on Thursday, but the second one of the double eviction is still anyone's guess. Too many possible variables at this point.

'Big Brother 17' Spoilers: Was the Power of Veto Used in Week 10?

John Kubicek
Senior Writer, BuddyTV

After three weeks in a row of the Power of Veto not being used on Big Brother 17, the ceremony has become a little stale. With Vanessa in charge and James and Meg on the block, is the duo still nominated together or did Vanessa put up someone else?

James won the Power of Veto.

He saved himself. Julia is the replacement nominee.

Yes, one of the twins is on the block. Though Austin, Liz and Julia initially resisted this move, pushing Vanessa to backdoor Johnny Mac, she stood her ground and convinced them that they need to take out Meg and the only way to do that is for Julia to be the pawn. After all, she hasn't won anything and she's never been nominated, so it's time for her to carry her weight.

Johnny Mac told Julie Chen his target is Meg and Steve has promised Vanessa and the AusTwins to vote Meg out, so it should be decided. But it will be interesting to see if Meg and James campaign to Steve and John to get them to vote out one of the twins. It will be equally interesting to see how they react to that idea. However, Vanessa has made it very clear to James and Meg that Meg is her target and she's going to be evicted.

For now, the double eviction could be bloody. Steve and John both want to nominate Austin and Liz while James wants to nominate Austin and Vanessa. It's unclear what the AusTwins would do, but it probably involves James, Johnny Mac and Steve.


FUN FACTS

-Austin has now survived 11 evictions without ever being nominated. That's second only to Derrick, who made it through 15 rounds of nominations without going on the block last year.

-Austin and Liz have both survived 11 evictions without ever facing a vote. Only eight other people have ever done this, including Derrick, Frankie and Christine last year.

-Austin will be casting his 10th vote for eviction this week. Only nine other HGs have ever voted that many times, including Victoria, Christine, Frankie, Cody and Derrick all last year.

-Meg has played in a total of 18 HoH and PoV competitions without winning a single one. That's second only to Dr. Will Kirby, who played in 21 HoH and PoV comps during All-Stars without a win.

Matt is probably right. It's not likely that Austin would break up the twins. If he's responsible for getting Julia booted, Liz would be very angry with him and it wouldn't be worth it to incur her wrath even if it would mean having her "all to himself".....ewww ! Creepy !


Big Brother 17: James & Meg Launch “Operation Trojan Horse”
By: Matthew Boyer | September 1, 2015 at 11:30 AM EDT

Overnight Meg and James crafted a new plan to flip the vote and save their Goblins alliance. It’s more than a Hail Mary. This one looks more like Mission Impossible, but don’t tell them that.

Operation Trojan Horse is about to be launched on Tuesday as this week’s target hopes to turn things around and convince the other Houseguests to take out a brick from the “strong fortress” foundation.

I’m glad to see Meg and James working on a plan instead of her napping away the last few days, but let’s not get too excited. At this point I’d even warn against being cautiously optimistic based on the details of their plan and here they are.

Flashback to 4:10 AM BBT 9/1 to find the Goblins going through what they think will work to save Meg. First step is to go to Austin and convince him that he needs to vote out Julia. No, I’m not kidding. But to avoid having Austin take any blame they’ll pin the flip vote on Steve.

With Steve taking the fall that also means they won’t be trying to bring Steve in on the plan. Instead the third vote would have to come from Johnny Mac. They think John would be easy to flip on this plan and the real challenge for them would be Austin.

James argues that Austin knows he can’t keep protecting three people and this would give him an easy out. Now in a vacuum I’d say Austin would like the idea of having Liz to himself without having to worry about Julia riding on Liz’s back to the end. Then Austin would have both Liz and Vanessa to himself with Julia out since Vanessa and Julia would be closer than Austin and Julia if Liz were to go later.

Austin isn’t going to flip on Vanessa though. If she doesn’t approve of this idea then she won’t allow it and considering that bond Vanessa has with Julia that just won’t happen. Vanessa wants Liz out, not Julia, and she already missed that chance.

Same goes for John that he won’t flip against Vanessa and especially not for James and Meg. They burned Becky by keeping Vanessa and John knows they’re not reliable, especially not enough to burn his newly minted arrangement with Vanessa. And definitely not a good deal for him to have to get his other ally, Steve, in trouble. This plan by James and Meg would put John at odds with the only two allies he has. Won’t happen.

Now I know James is a fan favorite and Meg is well liked too, but they’ve suffered from a disconnect between how they perceive the game and what’s really going on. It’s common and understandable, but it’s been crushing to their games. This situation is no different.

Jump ahead to 4:49 AM BBT as James explains “the only way this won’t work” is if Austin has some sort of final “deals with them and they’re working together like deep undercover.” Austin has final deals with the twins, with Vanessa, and he’s been working closely Steve this whole game. The only other HG left that Austin doesn’t have a close alliance to is John.

They’re sunk, but I’ll give it to them that they’re trying and that’s important. You never want to walk out of that house without giving it your all to stay so I’m glad they’re doing something. This just isn’t going to work though. I still expect Meg to be voted out 4-1 on Thursday.


Here's another take. He's right, until the rest of the house 'wakes up' the Austwins could coast to a final 3, giving the jury members an impossible choice in F2, because none of them would want to vote for any of the three.
