Big Brother 17 – New HoH Competition, Finally!



Note – Someone in the comment section mentioned the NFL is taking over CBS in some parts of the east coast once again, so be sure to check your DVR’s

HoH Competition Updates:

HoH Update 1 (10:00pm est) – Meg was eliminated in the first round.

HoH Update 2 (10:20pm est) – Julia eliminated


HoH Update 3 (10:30pm est) – Vanessa eliminated

HoH Update 4 (10:38pm est) – John eliminated

HoH Update 5 (10:54pm est) – Steve eliminated

HoH Update 6 – James eliminated

Austin is the new HoH

Look, I don’t want to say this week has been boring, but let’s just say if I had to re-watch the feeds this week or sit on a plane for another 5 hours, I’d pick the plane every time. Let’s summarize the week:  Becky and John were nominated. Austin is still cheating on his girlfriend (although likely ex soon), Liz still doesn’t seem to like him, yet has no problem doing whatever it is she does with him, and Becky’s foot may or may not fall off.

(the last one is a bit cryptic. To save you time, she has a staph infection in her toe)

The good news?  There will be a new HoH tonight!  The better news?  The house may actually try to go after a big target – Vanessa. While I can’t promise the latter, I can guarantee the former – although you won’t be able to watch it on CBS. Why?  It’s another endurance competition! This means the competition will run past the live show and into the feeds.  This also means you’re going to want to buy the feeds, seeing as you get a free trial and all.

How do you buy the feeds? Good question! Visit this site and register. It’s that simple.

And finally, while I have people here looking for show spoilers, follow me on Instagram (my personal IG). Or, follow Big Brother Junkies on Facebook or Twitter for site updates and spoilers.

Enough of that. Time for the updates of the live eviction show:

  • 6:00pm – Here we go!
    • A look in the jury house tonight!
  • Highlights into the last few days:
    • Austin and Liz talking about how Becky’s speech for PoV
    • James jokes to the cameras how he and Meg are getting engaged
    • Steve and John want to align with Austin and the twins because they’ll be the smaller threat opposed to Meg/James
  • 6:18pm – Commercial break over.
    • Julie checks in with the house and they all give a coordinated point to Julie
    • Julie shows the house clips of James and his pranks
    • Julie shows Meg a clip of her slamming her head down during veto
    • She finishes by asking Steve how he feels about missing his family which leads into a clip about his home life
    • The mayor of Steve’s town declared it Steve Moses day. I’m not even sure my city would care 🙁
    • They are happy to see him interacting and socializing with the house.
  • 6:28pm – Commercial break over.
    • Jury house time! I know where that is, I was going to drive by it when in LA but it was empty.
    • Jackie shows Shelli the clip of the double eviction
    • Shelli’s mind is blown.
    • Shelli says that Vanessa was going to backdoor Steve. So, she’s upset that the house didn’t target Vanessa. Even Shelli said that if they want any chance to win this game, they need to get her out. Jackie said she’s probably next (she’s not, obviously, and we’ll find out who it is now – spoiler: Becky)
    • John says keeping Becky would be dumb but he wants to stay. Everyone laughs.
  • Votes:
    • Steve: Becky
    • Vanessa: Becky
    • Meg: Becky
    • Austin: Becky
    • Julia: Becky
    • James: Becky
  • 6:40pm – Back from commercial. Interview with Becky time
    • Julie asks Becky about her alliance turning on her (by evicting Shelli)
    • She also asks if she regrets the way she handled Vanessa
    • Julie “Is Vanessa the best player right now?” – Becky “logically yes, but there are some who had a slow start. Steve is one”
    • If she gets the chance to go back in, will she befriend Vanessa or go after her?  Becky said she’d probably go after Liz
    • We get to see clips of zingbot as he’ll be appearing this week
  • 6:50pm – HoH time!
    • This is going to end after the show, so get your live feeds
    • Ok, this is weird. They have to get in position to race and wait for the sign to say ‘go’. They wait in place for an undetermined amount of time. Once the sign finally says ‘GO’, they race like 30 feet to hit a button. The last person to push the button is out. They’re also out if they false start (start going before it says GO).
    • Round 1 – Meg was eliminated.
    • Round 2 – Julia eliminated
    • Round 3 – Vanessa eliminated. All girls out

    You may want to tell some of your East Coasters they may have to wait until 11:38pm to watch Big Brother. Preseason Football here in Virginia preempted Big Brother.

    I’m very curious to see what will happen with Johnny Mac in the next week or so. Will he play the role the twins want?

    from Jokers 6:58 PM Next Thurs. former HG now juror will return says Julie.
    I went to the bathroom before Under the Dome started….is this true?

    Julie clearly said it would be between shelli, becky, jackie, and the next person evicted. I hope whoever wins doesnt pussy out and they put up vanessa. The only reason I want vanessa up, is so I can be entertained and excited about big brother for once!

      How is that puss not to target Van at this point?The real targets should be the Austintwins. If your thinking logical and strategic. It’s coming down to numbers. Big time now! Its not who ya like. If the Austintwins stay together 2 more weeks, it’s almost a lock they all are 3 of the final 4. Just math. Van may actually be in great position because of the 3 headed monster.(Austintwins) People will have to work with her. Unless they are playing for 4th ,5 th or 6th
      p.s Austin will keep Van and of course the twins this week. To ensure power. Just takes 3 votes now. James most likely target. And if that doesn’t work out there are others that can go. Ps.s. If Van stays. And most likely will this week. For reasons I stated. Watch out if she wins next HOH. She is well aware of the Austintwins power of 3. Ps.s.s
      Most of ya won’t like this part. But have ya noticed every since Van got called out. Everyone that crossed her has been evected unamiously. B4 that the votes were somewhat mixed. Magic?
      Can it be luck? It’s happened too many times for luck.

      Austin wins the HOH. Great, another week of “Queen Diz” up in the HOH room.
      Well, we can now see how the rest of the season is going to play out.
      The evil trio, Vanessa, and Steve will be the final five. Guaranteed – they now have the numbers.
      Doesn’t even matter who returns next week – even if JMac, James, worthless Meg, or the returning HG wins HOH, they other side still has the numbers. And I think JMac has turned and will vote with the Sixth Sense. He knows he’s outnumbered.

      Poor James, I really wanted him to win to shake things up – but we’re back to the same old same old obnoxious week with Diz, Austin, and their enormous egos.

    Ok, so Austin has won it.

    My bet – he puts up Meg and James. With a backdoor plan to take out John.



    1. He has an ego. And that whole “Austin’s Angels” thing has meaning to him.
    2. He too will probably think someone else can take Vanessa out later.
    3. He is gullible and will believe whatever Vanessa tells him.

    I would wager that the four fighting to get back will be Shelli, Jackie, Becky, and Johnny. Hate to say it but JM laid out his hand for Austin to see. Austin will show allegiance to Vanessa. And that will mean JM will have to go. I hope I am wrong. JM is my favorite – funny outlook and all. But they had their chance to get her out last week and failed. She has them all afraid of her – don’t you dare confront her or come after her. (Using fear and intimidation to control others) And she can turn on the tears when necessary to play on their emotions.

      interesting theory jim. I think he may put James and John up and maybe backdoor Vanessa or even Steve. The comps will eventually switch to mental soon after the juror reenter so keeping Steve around is a liability. Heck for selfish reasons and to shut the hater up get rid of the other sister can’t keep track who was the one that likes him I think it’s Liz that likes him at least a little but then again it might be Julia.

    • Jannie

      Nah – Austin, Liz and Julia are all scared to death of Vanessa.
      Too chicken to get rid of her.

    • Avatar

      I agree James and Meg will go up and be told they are NOT the target. Unless James wins POV, he will be the one to go because he is a bigger threat. They won’t touch Vanessa this week—excuse will be she could come back from jury. Game is over as far as I’m concerned.

    I think John is in trouble. I really think they (aka Vanessa) will want him out before James. I also think John doesn’t have the skills to campaign against another houseguest.

    I just wish Austin would be smarter and get rid of Vanessa because if he takes her to final 2 he will lose guaranteed and really if he survives much longer I’ll be surprised because Vanessa if she wins HOH and really is not afraid of getting blood on her hands she’ll evict him easily.

    • Avatar

      Exactly my point Kristine.(Scroll up to see what I thought of coming weeks)And if Becky comes back NOONE would expect VAN and Becky to work together.Becky said she would work with Van if she gets back in. She said it to Julie just after evection. She is strong and the favorite to come back. These 2 girls (Van and Becky)aren’t playing for 4th 5th or 6th place. They would work together with Steve. And take out one of the Austintwins at a time. This game may actually get good. As for this week. Just FF like last week. We know how it’s gonna play out. James, or Jonny go home. The best 2 competitor’s to threaten Austintwins.

      watched a clip of BBAD and it was Austin, the twins, and Vanessa all talking about putting one of the twins up as a pawn against I think James.

  10. Sweet Bee

    In some way it’s almost smarter to wait until after the next eviction to get out Vanessa. She won’t have a chance to come back into the game. But if she won next week’s HOH that would suck!

    • Avatar

      my thoughts exactly Bee. I hope she doesn’t win HoH so somebody with guts can get her out. Definitely not Becky, Austin can’t compete the twins follow Austin and Vanessa like children the only one who could come back and target Vanessa is Jackie or Shelli(?) Shelli if she thinks smart should turn on Vanessa and follow James if he doesn’t go home and if he does then she should just lay low maybe work with Steve but days are numbered. Meg can’t win crap that is important so she is the perfect pawn to keep around whereas John and Steve are smart pawns and unfortunately a liability to keep around now that mental comps are starting to come up soon.

  11. Boo

    Boo! Hi. Haters.

    Austin won hoh and I smile because there is not a damn thing any of you haters can do about it.

    Maybe Liz will give Austin the head in head of household again? What? Too much? C’mon, we all know that’s why he tried so hard to win hoh. Don’t lie.

    Much love.

    • Avatar

      well unfortunately boo no matter who austin gets rid of this week won’t really help him get to the end and Liz cant give Austin next week’s HoH because he can’t compete so unless she wins and lets him influence her there is no way he can get his voice in. Unfortunately whoever gets voted out has a chance to get back in and if it is James or John Vanessa will need to watch her back or the twins need to watch their backs if they win HOH. More than likely the comeback game will come before the HoH so basically if Jackie, posssibly Shelli, or James or John(depending on who goes this week) and win HoH they will put Vanessa up question is who to put next to her or they may put up two pawns and backdoor Vanessa if they are smart.

      Hey Boo !

      Have a great day !

    Bottom line is no matter who Austin wants out . They are gone. Look at the votes 4 people vote . He has Liz and Julia. Unless on of them flip its a tie and he breaks the tie. The scary part is how easily they are distracted and end up over thonking things. Jmack has already volunteer to be a pawn . At this point of the game a huge risk. These are super fans they know the reentry is coming soon. I can see the Austwins talking the selfs out of going after Vanessa for that reason. . Once more let’s not get big blood on our hands let someone else do our dirty work. . James and Steve seem to understand that Austwins are the bigger threat now . I’m just not sure they can do anything about it
    So get ready for another week of the preening Austin , Liz, and there serf Julia treating everyone like shit . Vanessa playing the mad insane Russian monk weaving tails of unrest being started by JMack, James, and Steve. Planting those seeds of doubt in the dung pile they call a brain in Austin, Liz, and Julia

    Anyone know how I can watch last night’s episode since my DVR malfunctioned?

    It’s going to be interesting to see if Vanessa can stay and dethrone Liz and Austin.

    He wants her out. And she knows that in order to win, she is going to have to find a way to get two of the trio out.

    It’s going to start to get stressful in there real soon.

    Liz and Julia will want to stick together. Austin might want to stick with Liz, unless like dan insinuated the other day that Austin might be playing the twins. ( Now that would be a phenominal blindside !) All along people they have worked with will have to start gunning for them.

    In order to survive, Vanessa will have to team with a havenot. Otherwise she is toast.

    Curious about the nominees. Could be exciting !
