It looks to me like:
1st Becky
2nd Julia
3rd/4th Johnny/Shelli

Are you serious? of course it matters. Production can easily manipulate which comps to play each week to favor the side with the dwindling numbers. Pretty suspicious that the summer campers were decimated in numbers and we "conveniently" get 2 back to back endurance comps which favors their strengths (James, Becky). I'm positive that if the roles were reversed and that S6 were down in numbers, we'll be getting 2 back to back mental comps the last 2 weeks to even out the field to create better TV. No one wants to see a pagonging.

I can't stand Becky and they give her the best comp possible for her. Gonna be an annoying week unless Julia pulls through. One time for the good guys.

Would Becky put up? She can't really play middle if she wins this unless she puts up planned noms.

Becky has a significant lead. She's past the middle line, the widest part of the jar while no one else is there yet.

Jmac said if he wins he'd put up Meg and Liz planning on backdooring Vanessa. Saying that would guarantee the veto would be used unless Vanessa won veto. Interesting strategy. Hopefully if team Vanessa wins veto they don't use it and vote out Meg.

Becky i don't know who she'd put up. I know her target would be vanessa and suspect a backdoor as well. They are too scared of Vanessa to give her a chance at veto or to have a week to manipulate.

Becky @ 2 notches past 1/2 full .. Jackie and Jmac and twins ~ half full.. Doesn't hurt that her closest competition is Jmac who she feels pretty confident would not put her up.

I still don't understand this comp...won't Becky just be able to win all 3 prizes? In the past, there was a separate, smaller jug they had to fill up to go for a cash prize

pretty sure she could if she doesn't panic.. Only drawback would be putting the "Housemate that already won $10k" target on her back.

It's an interesting spot and I think she could put herself in a great position if she plays this week right. The goal should be to get Vanessa out and do it in such a way that Austwins + Shelli and ADC target each other leaving Jmac and Becky in the middle.

Put Steve and Vanessa on the block with Steve being a pawn. Make an alliance with Austwins because they won't be able risk using the veto if they win it and tell them that if Jackie, Meg or James win next HoH they will persuade them to target Shelli or Steve. That way she only has to sweat Vanessa winning Veto and the long shot of Shelli being picked, winning and taking Vanessa off.

Dunno who she'll nominate, but if she wants Vanessa out then her best bet is to put up two of the twinstins and go for the backdoor, ensuring 2 votes to get out vanessa

Yes. But she might worry about pissing off Austwins because if Shelli , Vanessa, and maybe Steve wins veto the noms would stay the same evicting an Austwin. Vanessa might use it to save an Austwin but she would know Shelli, Steve(less likely they would put Steve up as the other side would worry Steve would go home over someone who they perceive to be on the other side), or the other Austwin would be evicted.
