Should have followed through with the plan IMO. I don't even think they will get the votes to kick out Jason. I feel like he can convince James, Johnny Mac, Jackie, Meg, and Steve to vote for him. Then all of them gunning for her next week.
Clay, Shelli, Austin, Liz vote to evict Jason. (Am I missing anyone?)
Going to be an interesting episode for sure.
At the same time if she does make it to the end, jury usually sides with people that made the most moves even if they did backdoor the jury members.
Steve is with Vanessa and John is with Becky.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

And James taking Clay to the Outback Steakhouse date is pretty telling, IMO. That blossoming bromance could pay dividends for the 6th sense alliance.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Jason will be lucky to get more than just Meg's vote. The others are trying to save their own asses by sucking up to the people in power.

That alliance will turn on each other before the final 6.
Its just a matter of getting numbers outside the alliance on your side.
Clay and shelli are doing fine at this.
Vanessa is doing ok with it.
the twins and Austin are alone.
Austin might migrate out with Vanessa.

I really want to see two hohs outside of the sixth sense in power this week.
After the double elimination (my prediction for tonight).

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

I'm not going to spoil anything because I'm guessing almost everyone here watches the tv shows only but the show yesterday was edited horribly. It's not really their fault as they could have shown hours and hours of conversation but there is a lot more going on.

I think that this is a great place to discuss the show.
I kinda follow some other forums of big fans of the show.
I don't think there is any harm in posting things we see on the feeds.
Maybe we can add "spoiler" in the beginning incase some people don't want to see it.
But you are definitely right about the edited show not doing the actual ongoings in the house any justice.

it looks as though most of the house is preparing for a double eviction.
I would like to see that tonight but most of the time they let you know the day before on the Wednesday show if its coming. Sometimes they surprise us.
Most likely they will take too much time with the twin coming in the house that it will endup being next week.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Yeah I don't think it can be double eviction. They wouldn't have time and wouldn't want to risk a twin walking in and out in the same night.

The right play was definitely keeping Austin. They now have the numbers in the house 9-3 with 3 of the 9 on their side thinking they are higher on the ladder then they really are.

The 6 can now control anything they want as long as Meg James and Jackie don't win both HOHs. Even when the house goes after the 6, Vanessa would likely be safe because she has the Clelli shield and the Austin+ twins shield depending on which side group gets targeted first. Also, both side groups think Vanessa would stick with them over the other.

BTW, it appears that Vanessa is working with Steve so maybe he will vote out Jason...although he seemed really vindictive towards Becky on last nights episode during the challenge.
Yeah, I think that was her fatal error-- making the deal to backdoor Austin. She was in a no-win situation once the chips didn't fall her way in the BoB competition... do I betray the 7-8 people who are counting on me to backdoor Austin, or do I send Austin home and lose a loyal member of my alliance? She put herself in a corner and it came back and got her. Huge target on her back now.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

1 of the 8 is leaving this week, the other 8 are Clelli who are behind her, Becky who is behind her, and Meg James and Jackie who are all more mad at Clelli than Vanessa. Meg can't win a comp, James can be manipulated. If only one of the non 3 win HOH nothing bad can happen to Vanessa.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Austin would backstab Vanessa without even blinking. He believes the twins will carry him through with 3 voters voting together as 3 instead of one.

The strongest player so far has been JohnnyMac, IMO.

Jason knows the game and is another strong player.

CBS will find a way to break up the power couples soon and that should even the playing field. We still have a few more weeks before we see that happen. Otherwise, one side will steam roll the other and that doesn't make for good watching tv.

Vanessa will probably be the first to go on her "team." She is a massive target.

Not sure what Clay sees in Shelli. She is 10 years his elder. Clay should be with Liz.

Look at past winners.

It's not time YET.

He hasn't ruffled any feathers and he is owed favors.

People will start turning on each other and then you will see that he is in a pretty good spot.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

The 6th sense is already onto Johnny and want him gone after Jackie. It's between James or Johnny who go next if they have their way but he is gone before Meg in their plans.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

There is a diff between doing nothing and hiding under the radar. They have shown him initiating 0 strategy.

Also, twins are hottest in house

These alliances that get formed this early in the game always endup turning on eachother.
when that happens members will start grasping at james and jon and becky and Jackie to have their backs over the others.
You will see Austin and Vanessa start to segregate from the twins and you will see clay and shelli start to segregate from the twins.

Can we get spoiler tags on things that didn't happen on the show yet. Just made watching the next episode pointless.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

If you guys want to make this thread spoiler-free I'm fine with that. We have the one over in OOTV where we talk about what's going on in the feeds.

Were you going to just watch the first 15 seconds and then turn it off after they told who won HOH?
