Not sure I've seen anyone that bitter. I have no respect for him. Not that I did before after what he did with Liz in the HOH knowing her family is watching the live feeds.

Where do you people get this info. Vanessa and Chad remained good friends after the divorce. She even took care of him when he was ill.

i'm holding out that her poker background gets revealed at some point.


I don't know why everyone thinks Vanessa won't get the votes. In every exit interview, all of the evicted houseguests said Vanessa was playing the best game except for Austin's bitter interview. You will be surprised how many votes Vanessa gets.

I don't want to go on a nerd out rant but I'll say this...And this is really not hating for the sake of hating...But Vanessa is really (is it just me or?) unlikeable / irritating as F. From the whole I'm so smart thing we have witnessed with her in poker as well...To just her overall vibe both socially and GT wise she is just downright annoying to watch most of the time.

In terms of her game...Esp if she takes it down - It's very much like a mtt. She played well in some spots. Very well in a few but also played really meh / bad at a couple of points and got lucky in key spots. That week she somehow survived when she seemed 99% gone and I believe Kelly got the boot? Yea I mean....Such a mistake and never really understood how and why the house flipped but such a huge mistake.

Overall GG but wow is she annoying.

Another thought would simply be Austin began to creep me out as the season chugged along...But he has earned my respect now...And has played a really solid game.

I'm all for J mac tho =)

p.s have not seen tonights ep yet bout to tho.
How did Vanessa survive when she was 99% a goner.....because she convinced them to keep her. Just like she's convinced everyone of everything else the entire season. Like her or hate her, she will go down as one of the most strategic players ever.

On people saying she looks rough, I agree she looked way better when she dressed more feminine but if she were a man dominating the BB game would anyone even give a **** about her looks?
I think that NOBODY can beat her in the final two and I hope she takes Steve. JMac hasn't done $h!#. I guess so many ppl are rooting for him bc he's funny and his laugh is beyond rediculous. Imo the jury will vote for her based on her BRILLIANT gameplay, and the bitterness will wear off. Evil Dick was a complete pos and still got votes over his super hot and MUCH more likeable daughter Danielle. Vanessa is nowhere near as hated as Evil Dick.
In closing...V A N E S S A . F T W ❗️❗️❗️
Agree with everything you said. It will be interesting when Brendan and Rachel visit the jurors since Rachel is very pro Vanessa and will definitely be painting the picture of voting for the best player and not being a bitter jury.

What's funny is its common for the hardcore fan base to want more by "super fans" cast but Vanessa is not a superfan. She is a fan of the show but basically casually. She saw it as a game challenge. At the end of the day big brother is a game and it is not terribly intricate structurally so there is not much detail you have to know to be successful.

Knowing who won every comp in every season in be history is pretty much worthless in terms of being able to play the game. Ian is really the only superfan who has even won the show so I don't know why people would want more of that.

I would prefer more people who just had strong strategy and gaming backgrounds play they people who can name the hometowns of every cast member from s4.

I don't think Liz would get more than 2 votes against anyone.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

taking liz to the finals is a huge mistake. She has guaranteed two votes, and has actually been a dominant player the whole season in terms of comps as well as being at the top of an alliance for the better part of the entire game.

Steve and John haven't won much and don't have a tonne of friends in the jury house, realistically Vanessa was better off going against either of them. Definitely was a pretty awful move by her to vote out John.

Also +1 to whoever said this show has made you dislike her. I definitely started off rooting for her, but as it's gone on she's just so painful to watch. So fake and annoying. Is also unnecessary to play the whole "I swear on x person", when its a lie or especially when you just go back on it right away.

Was rooting for John, probably rooting for Liz now.

Its possible but pretty unlikely. She'd essentially need to win 5/7 votes in order to win, which I don't think is going to happen. A decent amount of the voters seem like the type to hold a grudge, and realistically Liz has played a really strong game both in competitions and strategically. I think Liz is a lock vs anyone and they'd be insane to take her to the final.

big mistake by Vanessa to not evict Liz

the final 3 have all played good games. i think if steve wins he'll take vanessa, liz will take vanessa and vanessa will take liz. i'm rooting for a steve/liz final 2 but it probably won't happen. i don't want ladymaverick winning any money. she is by far the most unlikable person this season besides audrey. /bitter and annoyed.

best case scenario liz wins with a 7-1 vote.

Oh I'm not arguing that. She has maneuvered her way threw some sick spots but THAT one in particular made no sense to me / really stood out. Also I think part of her success at being able to implement a certain strategy that convinces everyone to do as she wants is positive variance in terms of having a deece ammount of easy to convince house mates =).

Don't get me wrong tho...Even tho I find her wack her game has been impressive.

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

As someone that has been aware of this show(by name only) that is watching BBAD right now, I have to say this is one the weirdest things I've ever seen. Watched an hr the other night because of this thread, and now they're getting dunked in and out of tub of bloody looking water in a fun house with no one speaking to each other. I can't help but think whoever falls first is about to die a horrible death. may need to watch a full season and see what this is all about.

Liz could never get more than the two votes you mention because Liz never once, during the entire season, talked game with anyone. Austin did it for her.

James and Meg both said in their exit interviews that Vanessa played the best game of anyone so I'm sure they would vote for her. Becky and JMac also said if Vanessa made final two, they would vote for her. So that's four votes right there. Shelli votes for Vanessa as well. Julia and Austin vote for liz. I don't think anyone will vote for Steve if he makes it.

I'm definately terrified of a bitter jury. With emotion taken out of the equation she hands down wins against anyone...if they're as bitter as some of you two+twoers then she may get ROBBED of her deserved title. She has played this game geniusly imo, despite being overly emotional and paranoid...some ppl are just like that...but most ppl aren't being filmed 24/7 so we never see it. I think I'm rooting for Steve for runner-up. Jmac was pretty useless and I'm glad he's gone.

Vanessa,

Despite your haters, you have a ton of fans who've supported you from day 1. As a BB superfan and a poker lover I think you did a great job representing us and I'm hella proud of the pure genius of your game!

Re: Vanessa Rousso is a houseguest in Big Brother 17

I think Vanessa has played a really good game. Socially and strategically. She has manipulated everyone into evicting who she wants, week after week. If she makes finally 2 and doesn't get the votes to win, it will be a shame.

It will be interesting to see if Austin has any luck campaigning for Liz / against Vanessa in the Jury house...
