Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

It's such a ridiculous advantage the twins have. They are unwilling to vote against each other..how is that ok?

Actually, having a twin in the house is a major disadvantage because it puts a big target on the twins and it's super easy to justify voting one of them out.

However, I can see your point especially in today's game where players flip from alliance to alliance so quickly, Womb-mates will not flip on one another.

But when one gets voted out there is still one left. They're essentially one player with 2 votes, 2 chances to win each comp, and 2 lives.

Huh? Wait...What? Twin in jury has a chance to win a final 5/4/3 comp? And has a final 5/4/3 vote? What game am I watching?

When they were both in the game they were essentially one player with 2 votes, 2 chances to win each comp, and 2 lives.*

I don't see how people could think it's not an inherent advantage.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

It also gave them a huge advantage in information at the beginning of the game. That allowed them to be part of the strongest alliance in the game from start to finish, despite one twin being an average player and one being terrible.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

In the beginning of the show I wasn't a big Vanessa fan but she's been crushing it (eventhough playing a bit too hard) and now I'm rooting for either her or j-mac.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

They didn't show it on tv but a couple weeks ago Vanessa was trying to propose a chop with a couple other houseguests. At first production was ok with it and then told her she couldn't. I found that pretty funny.

True, when both twins were in the house they had an advantage that all other houseguests were aware of. They chose not to address it. But, here you state when one is left, that one has 2 votes, 2 chances to win each comp, and 2 lives. No. When both were in the house that was true. The 2 went out the door with the twin. The playing field is now level.

J-Mac or Steve for the win. I believe that Vanessa is playing to hard and everyone is on to her, she will need to get lucky to pull it off from here on.

She should definitely target JMack because he's a snake and can possibly convince Austwins to take him to the final three. Steve on the other hand is hated by Austwins because he broke up the twins and they will never take him to the final three over Vanessa.

No one can beat Vanessa if she gets to the final two. Love her or hate her, she played the best game of any of them and probably of any past houseguest.

That's actually really funny. When she proposed it, did she say she would take less if she got the win? For her, I think she wants the title more than the money (I could be wrong).

The age old questions rears it's ugly head again. Which is more important the cash or the bracelet?

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

she should def take out liz, imo. Austin won't love it but he'd be stupid not to try and sway vanessa back to his side in final 4. That said I think the play is to take out liz and take ur shot that steve or jmac can beat austin in the hoh. I say she should keep austin around since i think they trust each other a bit more, and if austin wins hoh, she could prob get him to keep her off the block or at least not target her in final 4. I think liz would be more likely to put vanessa up than austin, imo.

I think she's hoping to split up both twosomes.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

Problem is Austin or Liz Automatically have two votes on the jury.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

She's definitely one of the greatest ever. Off the top of my head, I'd probably put her top 3.
