If she is that bad, why are you engaged to her?

OK. Friday was nominations. Veto was Saturday. Some good **** this week. Hope someone makes a game changing move. Veto ceremony Monday. Nuff said.

If Vanessa doesn't take out the double headed snake with a backdoor, her game is over IMO.

NOW is the time to flip the script. Do it while she has the #'s going into more comps.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

She survived the double eviction last night, but the odds on her winning don't seem all that great. Might make the final day (thus the final three), maybe even final two. Don't see who she can win against at the end.

If she made it to the final two, I don't see who she would lose to. She has been the most active player the whole season and has won multiple competitions.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Vanessa has played an incredible game. They all recognize she is playing the game, is dangerous, and they still keep her. She really should not have been able to get this far, and yet she is still there. Though for all her skillful play, she made a huge mistake allowing the Austwins to get this far. She allowed a 3 person alliance that involved blood, and blind love. That alliance likely has too many numbers to overcome, and 2 jury votes that can't be swayed should one of the Austwins survive to the final 2. Steve, John and Vanessa cannot lose another HOH or it's game over for them.

One of the 3 could still win HOH and put up 2 Austwins. But if any Austwin wins POV, 1 comes off block giving Austwins the 2 votes needed this week to vote out other person on block.

I'm surprised they haven't talked about this yet but the obvious play between the three is to throw POV to Julia if they can. But Austin really wants one of the twins gone so I don't think he would agree to this. But the twins don't know this. Obviously if Julia does win and takes Liz down and Vanessa goes up, Vanessa then has the perfect play with the twins -- tell them that Austin orchestrated this entire thing because he wanted one of the twins gone. BOOM

The thing that will keep her from winning is a spiteful jury. They don't appreciate game because most of them were recruits -- for goodness sake, Becky was found on Tinder and Clay was found at a Laker's game. Like her or hate her, Vanessa has played an amazing game. They're all afraid of her.

False. If the Austwins are up the only way they ensure they have the votes is if the Austwin not on the block win the power of veto. That's why you would put Liz and Austin up. If either of them win the veto then Julia gets put up in their place.

And Steve didn't even realize this for himself. Vanessa had to spell it out for him. He was all set to put both twins on the block and leave Austin, a better competitor, off the block, at which point he could have won POV and taken down Liz and controlled the vote for this week.

That could be. Just thinking of S14 and how Dan should have won, but got run over by a bitter jury.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Vanessa taking out a twin would have been a terrible strategic move. As it stands, Vanessa is the most dangerous player in the house and yet not a single player is targeting her. I'd say that is masterful play.

In listening to the exit interviews of both Meg and James, it was interesting that they both said that Austin was playing the best game. Good thing the plan is to get rid of him this week. #blindside

The best part is going to be when she sits them down and tells them that Austin orchestrated their demise and she's had their backs from Day1. Eternal loyalty ensues.

Well this is fun: Austin's finishing move as a wrestler is called "The Betrayal."

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

I've never watched big brother, but while flipping through the channels tonight I got bored and decided to watch it because of this thread. After watching the show, I have two observations:
1) Other than this one hour, thank God that I didn't waste any more of my life watching this ridiculously stupid show.
2) I had no idea how incredibly annoying Vanessa Rousso is.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

I couldn't believe it, but last night my 82-year-old mother (who suffers from dementia) was watching this show. So whenever Vanessa was on screen I would tell her "Mother, Vanessa is a notorious poker player. She married a guy and then divorced him when he got cancer. After her ex-husband had died, she claimed she divorced him because he was cheating on her - plus she's a lesbian." Mother said, "Oh, that's terrible! Why would she do that to her husband?" I just shrugged.

I'm curious ... Aren't all these "reality shows" scripted so that they appeal to rubberneckers and people who slow down to look at the scene of a traffic accident?

No. And I'm guessing you didn't tell your mother about Vanessa reportedly taking care of her ex in her home after the divorce.
