So far Jackie has been the backdoor target, then Becky was going to get voted out, then Steve was considered to sit next to Becky on the block, then Meg or Jason. And Austin is still lurking in everybody's mind, of course. It's exhausting, but no one can be more exhausted than the editors on the CBS show....what a mess their lives must be this summer.
Last night Liz slept in the HoH room with Vanessa, but she went downstairs to check out the situation this morning. She gave Austin some words of encouragement, saying she thinks he has a good chnce to stay off the block. Why is she letting Austin claw her leg like this? While he was talking he ran his hand back and forth, and up and down.
Move your leg Liz!
Back upstairs in the HoH, Vanessa and Liz talk about the options, and what they should do. I think Judas has popped up again, as Austin has apparently been pretending to overhear conversations that make it seem like the other side of the house is gunning for them. This is putting a bad light on Jason, of course. And Austin really wants Steve to go on the block, too.
Liz: In that purple room it's Becky and Jackie in the same bed, and Jason and Meg in the other one. And then James on that couch.
Vanessa: Oh, they're all together now, huh?
Liz: And Jason is the Gay Glue....without him they're nothing...
(Surely that is something Jason told Liz, right? Because that is what he told Big Jeff in the pre-season.)
This is what it looks like when they watch views of the dining area and the hallway outside the HoH Room on their Spy Screen. (aka "Netflix")
For someone who seemed so perceptive and shrewd in the early weeks of the game, Vanessa sure is saying and doing a lot of stupid things now. In the last few minutes, she's said the following:
* Vanessa went on and on about trying to figure out the "phone booth" thing. She knows everyone is saying that Da'Vonne won the last laugh, but she says no way that is possible due to the three people whose votes were cancelled. Vanessa feels there is no way that Da'Vonne would not have cancelled Clay's vote, since they didn't get along. So now Vanessa thinks that Jackie must have won the Last Laugh, and is going to try and grill Becky to see if this might be true. (A total waste of everybody's time, including our's.)
(In reality, Day was trying to plan ahead, wanting to deflect attention, instead of cancelling votes that might have helped her stay in the house. It was not smart on Day's part, trying to plan ahead when she should have been playing in crisis mode.)
* Vanessa is positive that Becky is the one who voted for Jeff to stay (one of the two hinky votes that week) and says Becky is a terrible liar. Liz wondered if Vanessa already interrogated Becky about this, but Vanessa says she did ask Becky about it.
(Liz placed one of the hinky votes! Liz, who is right there while Vanessa is saying this!)
* Vanessa wondered what would happen if Clay didn't use the PoV. After waiting a moment, Liz told her Shelli would never let that happen.
(Clay's ass would go home, Vanessa! Duh!)
Back in happier times (yesterday afternoon, before the PoV competiton), the mood was a lot lighter in the HoH room.
Jason visited Vanessa and they bonded over both having bad skin right now.
Jason: These bitches don't know what it's like!
Vanessa: I know...why am I having this problem at 32?
Jason: When I get out of here I'm going on Accutane.
Vanessa: Once I have kids, I'm going to do that. They say you can have kids a year after you stop taking it, but I still don't trust that. The side effects are too serious to risk it.
Vanessa got a card from Big Brother that instructed her to pick three Have Nots this week. That was an easy task, though, because three people had already volunteered.
A bunch of house guests gathered in the HoH room and had some laughs with the Spy Screen. They saw Clay come out of the Diary Room and all screamed his name, watching him look around to figure it out. He walked here and there in that room, and they screamed whenever he came into view.
Everyone cracked up and someone later said that the five minutes they played that "game" were some of the most fun they've had this summer.
Clay came upstairs and was a good sport about it. Becky was in the DR now and they planned to do the same thing to her when she came out.
