Big Brother 17 – Monday Feeds, Veto Meeting

"A secret alliance in Big Brother controlling the house? Never!"
“A secret alliance in Big Brother controlling the house? Never!”

Every season on Big Brother, there is the have-not room to punish a few people for whatever various reason. What that room symbolizes, however, is what really goes on in the house. The real situation is that regardless of what you’re forced to eat, typically by this time in the Big Brother game, you’re either a have or a have-not.


Right now, there are the ‘haves’ of Shelli, Clay, Austin, Vanessa, Liz and Julia and the ‘have-nots’ of everyone else. The ‘haves’ are controlling the house and very easily manipulating the ‘have-nots’ until they’re evicted one by one. There was no better example of that than yesterday when one of the fringe ‘have’ people (Audrey) exposed the group to the have-nots of the house.  Instead of rallying around this information, they sat back and were told it was a ridiculous idea. Most believed it, and all calmed down.

Now, some of the have-nots will be lucky enough to be strung along for the sake of numbers. Think of Porsche, Adam, Spencer, etc. All bad players who were brought to the end because it’s much easier to win when you’re competing against a weak person than a strong one.  There are a few this season who will likely fill that role from Meg to (and I hate to say it) John, but the reality is, barring any major changes in the house, one of those 6, and more realistically, one of the 4 (minus the twins) will win Big Brother 17 (I put Liz/Julia in the Porsche group instead of Adam group).

Before I begin spending the day with the feeds, shameless plug time…
Donate to my LA fund – I explain it in more detail in the link, but the summarize, the LA trip caught me off guard.
As far as those who volunteered to blog that Thursday, I will be looking to set something up very soon for testing.


Feed Updates  –

  • 8:45am – House is sleeping.  There will probably be a wake-up call in 15 minutes.
  • 10:10am – The feeds look to be 30 minutes behind, but they did the wake-up call. The feeds are up and down, so nothing to report yet
  • Jason and John are talking about how Audrey was crying to Vanessa and she is also worried about getting crap when she’s out of the house.
  • John went to DR, out comes Clay. Jason starts talking to him about Audrey. Apparently (and I haven’t confirmed), she has been pulling the transgender card. Before people get worked up, they’re not bashing her for it, nor does it sound like she’s trying real hard to play the card. It sounds like she’s mostly hinting around right now. I mean, Da’Vonne did say she thinks that’s the reason why they’re not voting her out, so perhaps there is something to it. I can’t listen to every single conversation.
  • 11:45am – I am a bit concerned for Audrey. I am beginning to wonder if she’s going to self-evict if she’s nominated. She had a massive panic attack last night, was apparently in the DR for 4 hours, and has been tucked away from the house since the blow up. One aspect of Big Brother I don’t like are situations like this when someone KNOWS they’re going home, and they’re being ignored, yet they’re forced to stick it out.  Hopefully Audrey just accepts it, opens up and enjoys her last few days in the house.
  • Btw, feeds have been down for 10 minutes or so. Could be PoV. Not Jeff-Loops, but that doesn’t guarantee anything.
  • 12:00pm – Feeds back, no PoV
  • 12:30pm – Everyone minus Vanessa and Audrey are sitting around the living room waiting for POV. Vanessa is sleeping, and Audrey is off-camera probably in HN room
  • Note – I  just realized that I started playing Candy Crush while having the live feeds on 2 summers ago. I maxed both the dream world and regular world (about 1800 total levels). #bloglifeproblems
  • 2:00pm – People are starting to wonder what is going on. Audrey has been in the DR now for a long time now. She was in there for almost 4 hours last night, and we’re approaching about 3 hours now. That is why the PoV meeting has been delayed. She is losing it, unfortunately.  (which means my post at 12:30pm was wrong about her being in HN room. She was in DR then as well)
  • James is upset he can’t go rub one out.  Oh, James.
  • Austin is outside with Vanessa and said “She can really be ruining this whole season” (about Audrey).
  • Vanessa is speculating that Audrey really is having a break down.  She said Audrey had problems at home leaving the house at times, and put in this environment could be rough on her.  Van is right, and I know first hand because I’ve dealt with that type of anxiety. It’s a bitch. I feel really bad for Audrey if she is going through it right now
  • Jason is saying Audrey apparently escaped from a serial killer, and they’re speculating that she had mental flags but her story was too good so they brought her in. A lot of speculation
  • 3:00pm – Austin says they’re probably talking her off the ledge (of walking), and feeds cut.
  • Austin thinks they (Liz/Julia) both hate Jeff.  Umm, he’ll be surprised. I think they’re more into Jeff than Austin.
  • 3:30pm – Still no Audrey update
  • Julia on Survivor “What do they do about food?  What if they get no food and die”. lol
  • She also won’t do the show “Naked and Afraid”.. don’t worry, Julia, they won’t be calling you. Survivor is summer camp compared to Naked and Afraid.
  • 4:00pm – No update. Going to run to McD’s for a not-so-healthy dinner, be back shortly
  • (note, my time and feed time are off because the feeds are crazy today. Audrey emerged on the feeds at 3:51pm, so I not a slacker)
  • Here is Julia’s reaction to Audrey going into the DR and shutting off the lights…
  • bb17-w4-liz-shocked
  • I should note, the feeds went down shortly after the Julia face, and have been down since (4:34pm). The house is really, really weird today
  • 5:10pm – Feeds still down. I am so curious what is going on.
  • 5:20pm – Feeds back, the house is wondering what happens if Audrey remains in the room all week.
  • Apparently the PoV meeting happened but Audrey did not attend.
  • Everyone is jokingly making deals with John promising their vote for safety knowing everyone is actually voting out Audrey
  • 5:30pm – James and Steve are doing laps around the back yard. They think it may be endurance comp this week. I hope so. If it’s next week, that’s going to suck
  • 6:30pm – Liz is back in the house. Austin is already with her. I am going to step away from PC for a bit, but I will be near twitter if anything happens.
  • 8:42pm – Back from a break. Had to watch a Lifetime Movie.  Austin is outside up Liz’s ass. Clay joins the conversation.
  • Liz mentions how she was stuck in the car for about 4 hours during the delay. I wonder where the jury house is, I bet that’s where they swap out. I want to drive by
  • I love you, Liz. Maybe we can double date with Julia and Judas
    I love you, Liz. Maybe we can double date with Julia and Judas

Off to bed, post tomorrow!

    After watching BBAD last night, I’d say that Audrey is toast this week.

    I so hope audrey goes home!!! I don’t want to lose jason or john!

    Jason and John who cares, they talk big in diary room then do not do anything in game…Come on work together, get with James etc. do something…I bet if they get in power in HOH they do nothing, probably put up the same people everyone is else is minus themselves, lol…they are WEAK!!!!!!!!!

    I can see where they think Audrey is “crying wolf”, but have they never watched big brother?!? There IS a group controlling the house! They better grow some and do something before they get picked off!! I mean, HELLO! You are playing BIG BROTHER!

    I think at least some of the “fish” moments are the boy band group having to perform their shows.

    Audrey is not in HN, she’s in the DR. The HGs had a wake up call to get ready for the Veto meeting and now they are all sitting waiting for Audrey to get out of DR.

    I still think she is going to self evict.

  7. Avatar

    Don’t the hg’s have to have any psyche tests to see if they are capable of handling the stress before being able to enter ? If not, then why not ?

    If Audrey is seriously considering self evicting just because it looks like she’s getting the boot, then she really wasn’t much of a stable player to begin with, and just on display as a trans-gendered person.

      Steve could use a psych evaluation. I first thought he was just socially awkward, but he seems beyond that now. Austin is just a self absorbed douche bag. Vanessa is a lying, 2 faced motor mouth, verbally destroying anyone not obeying her. None of them appear to be playing the game. Put facts together and use them! Twins in the house? Oh well. Six person alliance? Oh well. Is Jackie truly as stupid as she appears to be?

      I don’t get the feeds, Mouse, ( hope all is well btw) I just go by the updates here, and the show. So I don’t reall see much of Steve, he seems to get limited airtime. But, from what I saw on last night’s show, I get your point.

      I really don’t like how Austin has shown some really obsessiveness towards some of the women. He comes across as being a guy that treats women like property, and would be jealous if another guy looks her way. I’ve known some female friends that have gone through that situation, and Austin, without personally knowing him, seems to fit that character trait. I find it pretty funny that Liz admitted during the switcheroo that she is just whoring herself out to Austin because she thinks he can get them further into the game. It will be interesting if that will continue after next week.

    Audrey, hiding in the DR isn’t going to stop the show, change facts or prevent you from being put on the block.

    Does anyone else think that some of the houseguest look stoned in the DR? They are in California, where it is legal for recreational use. I mostly see it in Austin but they all have red eyes, it seems. Do you think producers let them smoke in the DR?

    Where did the log in go? I’m on my cell ans somehow got logged out. When I try to like someone’s comment it says I have to be logged in but I can’t find the log in area since the format changed again.

    What pass as long term game play seems to get easily changed on a whim. Eviction have more to do with someone being upset with a player that week Insted of a long term plan . The sixth sense thinks it will be in power each week They than get in the HOH room and roll the dice on who should be eliminated. Only to change because of something that happens that week. Shelli all but said her pool of people she could nominate was small

    • Avatar

      One statement to the wrong person can get you axed this year. LOL Jeff got it because he said something to Austin about the twins. I can’t stand Audrey or Vanessa. To me they are the same. Hope Vanessa gets it next. Or Liz. Or Austin. Or Clay/Shelli.

  12. Avatar

    OK so are they gonna do veto or not?!?!? So frustrating!

  13. Avatar

    Yay, special treatment for someone in the house who can’t deal with things. If they run psych checks before hand (which i’m pretty sure they do) they’re not doing that well of a job or gave her a pass and are now letting her do whatever to keep her calm. It’s big brother, it’s not easy. Hopefully she’ll be gone Thursday.

  14. Avatar

    OK Audrey was in the DR for over 5 hours. She may actually have something wrong, but my bet is she’s pulling a “Frankie” and attempting to gain sympathy. If it is medical, she needs to leave the show. If this turns around and allows her to stay in the house, I am going to be one mad woman.

    “Audrey” not playing by the rules and avoiding the POV meeting is what happens when you cast an unstable weirdo. Nice job BB casting! Hope she self evicts….. See ya never!!

  16. Avatar

    I hate this season! I wish someone from the other side of the house would win and get rid of Austin, Shelley clay or Vanessa. I’m glad Jason is off the block but I’m just so frustrated with how much I hate everyone. I hoped Audrey would stay longer not because I like her or think she’s a great player or anything, but because she would shake up the house if she won hoh.

  17. Avatar

    POV meeting was held. Audrey refused to attend. She’s in the HN room with lights off. Why do they even have rules? I think this show is doomed if changes aren’t made.

  18. Jannie

    Geez, Audrey, you can dish it out but you can’t take it, eh??
    What they did to Jeff was even worse, and he went out fighting and with class.
    If she does have some kind of mental issues, that’s on CBS and their screeners.

  19. jimbo

    Audrey was right, though. She’s crazy, but the other side of the house needed to heed her advice and take on the other side before it is too late. Meg, James, John, Becky, Jason etc have all been sheep waiting for their slaughter day.

    • Jannie

      But the others also haven’t had the chance to do anything about what is going on in the house. HOH Shelli, Vanessa, and then Shelli again left them all scrambling. Last night Jason and Jackie talked and agreed that either Liz, Vanessa or Austin has to go this week.

      Is anyone else getting sick of watching Shelli and Clay’s little flirtmance?? Shelli, the 33-yr old divorcee, acting like a schoolgirl when she’s around 23 yr old Clay. It would even gross me out the other way around, because Shelli does dominate him. Someone needs to break that thing up and get Shelli out – I would like to see how Clay plays on his own.

    • Renee

      Definitely sick of Shelli and Clay. He isn’t even a mature 23 year old, he’s more like 16 or 17 maturity level. What 23 year old man holds a door closed refusing to let another person (Audrey) into a room and then when it is opened say “I decided to let you in”. I will be glad when they are split up. It will be entertaining to see how either one of them plays on their own.

    If Audrey really was suffering a panic attack, I feel for her. I’ve been through that, and it is NO picnic. However, if this is strategy, buck up and accept your fate, Audrey. The house has had enough.
