It’s time for another live eviction on Big Brother. But first, as Juliew would say, we have to get caught up on who Steve nominated for eviction and the Veto competition. It feels to me like we have a lot to cram into this episode.
Well for some damn reason Big Brother did not want to record so I tune in two minutes in with Vanessa fake crying about having to evict her best friend in the house, Austin. You know, Austin the guy she was perfectly fine with leaving on her HOH several weeks ago because “she had a reason.” Bitch please. We just need you to own your evil and we would be way more supportive of your impending win. You REALLY thought you could not beat AUSTIN in the final two??? Shut up.
Liz is now getting that Vanessa is a lying liar who lies. John in his DR says that despite Vanessa’s crying, he, Steve and Vanessa all decided to do this right before the ceremony. Or more specifically, Vanessa told them what to do right before the ceremony. Was this the first real blindside of the season? Because clearly Vanessa did not let Austin or Liz know in advance. She is making a lot of enemies. Vanessa told JMac what to do seven minutes before eviction. Vanessa asks Steve if he trusts her. She says yes and tells him to go look nervous as hell. JMac loses Austin’s vote by fist bumping him moments before the show assuring him he is safe. This really has been an exciting season. Then we are back to Vanessa saying how much she adores Austin. Girl, please.
Then we are on to Steve who managed to do a math problem incorrectly, (so much for him being an idiot savant) and still winning HOH because JMac went slightly over.
JMac is worried that he is leaving. Liz is furious that Steve won HOH. And she misses her fingerbanger.
Vanessa immediately begins brainwashing Liz. Liz’s brain is so small it should be a quick task. Liz cries real tears. Vanessa cries bullshit tears. So Liz is going to work with Vanessa. Vanessa PROMISES to take Liz to final two on and swears on Mel.
Vanessa chats with JMac saying that she could get Steve to throw veto because she is afraid he would keep Liz over them. Frankly Vanessa wants everyone to throw veto because she is on the block. But that has not happened yet. Vanessa shakes JMac’s hand and promises to take him to final two. I think swearing on Mel may supersede a handshake, but who knows? Vanessa says that it is mathematically impossible at this point for her to make it to final three with both Liz and JMac so she if free to make a final two with both of them. And she already has one with Steve. She really needs to hope no one compares notes at this point though. Jmac knows she is full of shit. He will take her out if he gets a chance.
Steve nominates JMac and Vanessa. No one cares about nominations because this week, only the veto winner has the power. EVERYONE wants Vanessa gone despite all of her final twos. As long as she doesn’t win veto, she is going home. YAY!!!!
Finally, my favorite part of this point in the season. The jury house welcomes Julia and Austin. The jury can’t believe that Julia was voted out over Liz. The jury points out how stupid Julia was to listen to Vanessa about picking Austin to go against her. Then six days later, Austin arrives. It seems they never bothered to give him shoes. Austin immediately starts poisoning the jury against Vanessa. Shelli is cheerleading for Vanessa in the house. Austin is NOT having it. The jury is so going to give it to Vanessa.
Rachel and Brendon are inexplicably on and I am going to take a pee break. It sounded like it was sort of pro JMac. Rachel says that she thinks that Liz and Austin do have a shot at a real relationship. Rachel announces she is pregnant. Great news I suppose BUT AIN’T NOBODY GOT TIME FOR THIS!
The Veto Competition
HOLY SHIT! It’ Caleb. I have not had time to watch the feeds as much as I would like because of the move and my never ending interactions with the ad reps for this site. I’m so busy having panic attacks because I have been bleeding money for two weeks now that I rarely have time to check in. This is a surprise for me. It is some sort of Asian/martial arts thing.
It’s a days comp. The one they have all been studying for. They have to kick the right day or something. I don’t know. blah blah blah. Everyone talks about how important it is. Who cares. The point is Vanessa won. Actually they have to …. or nevermind. Liz went out first. Vanessa must be thrilled. This is a dumb, albeit new comp. Steve supposedly threw the veto. Because, idiot. In the DR Steve claims he just fucked up. When Vanessa wins, Liz runs out to hug her. Both Liz and JMac think they are going to final three. JMac is a bit more realistic about it.
Van takes herself off. Johnny looks at Liz and says, “I know that some of us are not too good about being discreet about being excited. So with that said, if they came to hear me beg, they will be disappointed. ~The Arbiter” Liz gives the usual blah blah blah speech. Basically, she begs. Vanessa casts her vote face to face. She basically says she can’t trust JMac and sends him packing. This is a smart move because now she has two non-allied people in the house with her who both think they have a final two. The crowd goes wild and this immediately has the final three freaking about over how much the fans love him. Steve still thinks he was a twist. They all seemed confused. The reality is he was going to take down Vanessa. And he has been the narrator of the season.
JMac says he knows that he had to win the veto and he didn’t. He says he would have evicted Vanessa if he had won. The audience applauds but not much. JMac says he thinks Vanessa and Steve will be final two.
Meanwhile back in the house they have Champagne. Van tries to peer pressure Steve into drinking a tiny amount, but he won’t and they toast to Julie Chen for some bizarre reason. At this point I hope Steve or Liz win. I know Vanessa “deserves to win” but BLECH.
That said this has been a fantastic season and I could make a great case for any of these three winning. HOH starts on Sunday night.
