Big Brother 17 – High School Romance Live Feeds



If you read my morning blog post (and you should have!), you’d have learned that the Big Brother house is entering it’s high school phase of the season. It is where people have gone too long without sex, they haven’t seen any new person in over a month and people you wouldn’t normally be attracted to suddenly start looking better.  It’s nature’s beer goggles, basically.

Austin walked in on Jeff and Liz in bed last night (they were chatting), but was clearly upset. After that, he went around trying to guarantee Jeff go home this week, but in the meantime, he is clearly losing his cool over the situation. I am not going to summarize it much because I did it this morning, so I want to jump right into the feeds today:

  • 12:20pm – Austin is hanging out in bed with Vanessa talking about the girl situation in the house. It is fascinating, yet weird at the same time. He mentioned how he was upset at the Jeff / Liz thing last night because throughout life he has been let down and hurt by women quite a bit. In a way, he kind of felt that again last night, betrayed sort of, but obviously not completely seeing as Liz and he are not an item.
  • During the conversation, Austin starts talking about Jackie and how he thinks she may be starting to get into him a bit. He said that would be awkward if both she and Liz were into him and he had to decide on who to choose.  He also said it would be funny to tell Jeff on the way out that now he has both girls to himself.  Kind of petty stuff, but whatever.
  • Oh, and Austin apparently wrote his thesis on love/romance
  • Another thing, they also talked about the possibility of Liz going home and losing two people as a result. They are aware this whole situation is making their alliance weaker than it has to be, yet they are not stopping it. Ugh
  • 1:11pm – Now Austin and Vanessa are talking about the concept of 2+2=5. It is driving me crazy listening to them talking about it but not mentioning ‘1984’.
  • 1:55pm – Austin is still in session with Vanessa.  I changed feeds for awhile because I couldn’t take it any longer, but I guess I’ll listen in some more.
  • It sounds like he’s still psyching himself up to have a ‘conversation’ with Liz.  This could get interesting.
  • I think I heard Liz get called to the DR. They’re probably saving her and swapping her out.
  • 2:34pm – Uh oh, Austin/Liz conversation begins… and the feeds change to Steve and Vanessa talking.  Really?  Come ON
  • 2:54pm – Feeds back in the HoH room with Vanessa, Liz and Austin and they’re talking about random stuff.  I  guess we’ll have to listen to Austin’s re-tell later on
  • Some re-tells from Liz to Vanessa… “He said he came in and said he had a girlfriend but he didn’t think he’d meet a person like me. He also wanted to focus on the game”
  • His relationship when he left was meant to be kind of open when they left.  To be fair, they have only dated for a few months (from what I heard, though could be longer)
  • He didn’t say he likes her but it’s obvious based on that conversation.
  • Liz actually really did like Jace but she didn’t want to hook up with him on TV, so she is really unsure about Austin.  It is very unlikely they’ll do anything during the show if anything happens (hint: easy way to reject)
  • Liz is saying she came into the house with her sister and that is her goal.  Overall, she’s going to try to keep him along without making things awkward, but I don’t think that will be possible.
  • The talk goes to Steve having a crush on Liz, Audrey joins and then the conversation goes to game.
  • 3:50pm – Taking a dinner break.  Be back later!
  • 6:00pm – Back from dinner and watching the CBS episode. Johnny Mack is hilarious. I am totally rooting for him
  • Turning on the feeds, Austin was working on James to make a deal for safety. Of course, James was already safe, but may as well make a deal when you can. He is now re-telling to Liz
  • Jason said he watched the feeds before but they weren’t sleeping. What were they doing?  I’ll answer that: They were sleeping
  • 6:45pm – Austin is making rounds making sure Jeff is going home tomorrow.  He REALLY wants him gone
  • Clay is in the HN room chatting with Jeff.  Clay asked him straight up if he entertained the idea of getting him and/or Shelli out.  Jeff admitted to saying he wanted to split them up
  • 8:00pm – Truth or dare time. James kissed Meg, Clay kissed Shelli (on the cheek).
  • 8:30pm – Vanessa and Austin are setting up a table in the HoH room so he can have a dinner with Liz.  Shoot me
  • 9:30pm – Austin and Liz are on a date!  So romantic. The stories are about Liz partying and getting wassssteeedd allll nighhhttt
  • Austin is talking about his masters program and his thesis, I don’t think Liz is impressed

Anyway, this conversation has been boring, and it’s late. I’ve been blogging all day.  Time for bed.  In 2 weeks, I’ll be in LA! Just thought I’d throw that out there. Should I start begging for spending money?

    Sounds like Austin has gone off the deep end into Caleb land Sorry to say I once tried to defend hm and his game play The big question is has this changed enough people to save Jeff . The only problem is it will come at the expense of James

  2. Jannie

    I can’t stand it when the house behaves like a bunch of lemmings and all just go along with the HOH to not rock the boat. There are still enough people in there to “shake things up” and not let Vanessa and Austin run the votes. Hoping Johnny Mac, Jason, Meg or Becki will figure out how to get some of the power for themselves. You can’t be too obvious, but a sleeper cell alliance of those four would be great.
    Don’t really care who goes home – I didn’t like James at first, but now he’s starting to grow on me. Usually not into the southern redneck, but he seems like a decent guy. And I feel bad that Jeff got railroading by the lies of Van and creepy stalker Austin.

    Ugh! I was watching the Austin/Liz convo and am very disappointed that the feeds cut! What the heck! I don’t care about Steve’s middle/high school crush that turned him down!

    It’s not quite true that the house guests “haven’t seen any new person in over a month”.
    The last BotB, Kathy Griffin’s frequent appearances, and the promotional trips outside the house (last year, Dallas Cowboys) have all contributed to the dilution of the sequestration that the early BB’s had. They need to get back to that.

    I am seriously struggling with this group. In previous years I would have checked this site several times a day. I haven’t been on in 3 days. No fault of Steve or the Site. I want to be invested in this group of house guests, but I can’t seem to connect. It’s the weirdest thing. Normally I would have found someone that I like or I wanted to win, but this group I could care less, but I will keep trying!

      I think the majority of us have the same opinion about these HG.

    • Rita

      I think we do this every year though. In the beginning we like them all then slowly we learn who to dislike. After that we find who we dislike the least and then we find one person to like. It doesn’t mean we will ever find the one to like but we choose the one we don’t dislike the most.

      This week I like Jason.

      It’s only week 3.

      (Exception: Season 15 which was the worst season ever!)

      I totally agree. I may just stop watching for a while and then binge-watch in a few weeks. I am going to cancel BBAfter Dark because these people are excruciating to watch. It reminds me of when I outgrew Real World and MTV all together. The “vote with the house” mentality and excessive back dooming is so uninteresting. At least Day kept them on their toes with her sassy ways.

      Part of the problem is that they aren’t there to entertain us the way we want them to.

      They re there to win $500,000. At the same time, we are voyeurs. If they’ re boring, they don’t care. They just want the money.

      But for me, John and Meg are pretty funny. At least there is that entertaining value.

      Unfortunately DA got the boot. She would have been good for stirring things up.

      And as much as many of you want Audrey out, she is adding some spice to it with her lies, rumors, and gossip. It would be even worse if she were to go.

    Damntruth – I think that Van just needed to find anyone to put on the block besides the obvious…Audrey.
    She(Vanessa) said that she “represents” transgenders and can’t put her out or it would look bad. So Austin put Jeff in her head because he is afraid that Jeff will steal Liz from him(as if she is his to steal…delusional).

    OK – I am all for anyone being anything or anyone they want to be, but an a$$hole can come from all races, religions, political parties and even sexual orientations. And I think Audrey is an a$$hole who may even be using her status to gain sympathy. She talks smack about everyone and throws votes. Day had her figured out.

    Also – I liked it that Jason seems to be able to read people better than poker player Vanessa…he had Austin’s “lying eyes” figured out in the back yard on tonight’s show.

      Audrey is this year’s Frankie! He wore his gay on his sleeve, and he was just so full of himself. I have nothing against people’s life choices etc, but as Jannie said a-holes come from all kinds of places!

    I think I may actually be rooting for John. If he would just stop throwing comps and lower his voice an octave or 2, I think I could really, really like him. He has shown a bit of personality, where all the others have not. Except for Austin. And I’m less than thrilled with his altar ego.
    I agree about Jason, however I wish he could have read the look on Clay’s face so he wouldn’t talk about how he knew Austin was lying.
    Vanessa crying? Oh puleeze.

  8. Rita

    Wow! The edit on tonight’s episode was HORRIBLE!! I watched it all on the feeds and that did not make any sense what so ever. CBS is really dropping the ball this year.

    • Jannie

      What do you mean?? How should we see it differently – I don’t have the live feeds.

    • Avatar

      Yeah, they edited out a lot of details of the jeff/vanessa fight.

      Jannie, what really happened was that Austin was confronting jeff about what he said about splitting shelli/clay up. He pulled van in to validate it. Vanessa brought up a time when jeff had gone to vanessa about starting an alliance with her and shelli/clay but changed his mind because he felt that it wouldn’t be smart to work with them as a couple. Jeff denied it, saying something along the lines of it actually being vanessa who came to him wanting to start an alliance. Vanessa got extremely angry about this lie, and got in his face and then intentionally made a scene for the rest of the houseguests. She wanted a reason to put him on the block, but in my opinion she oversold it. As you prob read in the Steve’s blogs she spent the rest of the week retelling this story over and over to everyone.

    What happens if Liz/Julia dont agree on who 2 evict, they are very different game players, …um Julia is in there Now? ,,,right?

    My wife and I religiously watch big brother and I still enjoy every season though I will agree it has gone down hill in regards to the competition. I don’t know why James, Jeff, and Jason just say crap out loud all the time to the wrong people instead of forming some kind of alliance. Donny had it figured out last season that Derrick was running the house and nobody did anything about it when Donny told everyone in the house they just went along with derricks wishes as if they thought of it first. Bb15 was lucky to have 2 people that ran things with Amanda and the Asian girl(I can’t remember names) but they ended up killing off all strong people early and had massive floaters in the finals.

    Right now I like Jason, John, and Meg. I want one or both of them to win hoh next week to get a better feel of where their heads are at gamewise. Unfortunately I think the ‘6th sense’ is going to run the house because everyone seems clueless to it. This episode made me feel bad for Jeff.

    Is Austin going to try and pull a Caleb and get out Liz/Julia when he finally figures out she’s just not that into him? Or, will he keep just trying to get rid of any guy she pays attention to. Since he already said all the girls want him and his plan is to flirt his way to the end and get rid of the male rivals for his ladies affections..

  13. CLangley

    I like Meg, Jason and John too. Steve is some kind of creeper. That guy is all over the place and everybody in there trust talking in front of him. I thought I caught him talking to James calling Liz by her and her sisters name Julia. I didn’t even know he knew for sure there was 2 of them and now he’s spilling the beans to James. He pops in and out of people’s conversations a lot and everybody keeps right on talking. Seriously he’s in the room, how did you not notice him lol??? He’s going to creep his way to finals if people keep dismissing him existing in the house or the conversation.

  14. pkcable

    Next week I would like to see Jason and Austin win, or Meg and Liz, and have it be 1 HoH from each side and THEN see what happens. And for a change have the HoH’s NOT work together. Or maybe they would and a new alliance would form. I HATE when 1 group takes over the game and then knocks everyone else out, which ALWAYS seems to happen. That stupid “quack pack” was the best example of this!

  15. Jannie

    Wow, Vanessa is sure letting the power go to her head. On BBAD last night she was screaming about how she gets revenge on anyone who crosses her…
    She could be this season’s new Amanda (BB 15)!
    And we all know how that turned out 🙂
