I took a few pictures that I never posted...sorry. We haven't had a lot of new, exciting news since the whole PoV blowup. It's been rather quiet since then.
The pictures start on Tuesday night... here goes.
When I logged on to the live feeds and saw this, I was confused. Who the hell is that? I actually thought it was Gina Marie for a minute.
The Lack of Hat threw me off...it is Vanessa, of course, lounging in the hammock, looking pensive. Things are winding down in there, you can feel it. That house feels really empty now, and there is no where for the remaining house guests to hide.
Austin wonders what Audrey is doing now...and he tells the story about how James made Audrey an omelet and Austin helped him deliver the tray to Audrey in the Have Not room. He said they kind of rapped on the door, opened it, and set the tray down just inside the door.
Austin joked about how smoke billowed out of the Have Not room and the sounds of the monster inside. Julia said that that tray stayed in there on the floor for two days, with Audreys glass of juice and everything.
Johnny: Yeah, Audrey gave zero fucks...she was eating, taking hot showers, using blankets...why didn't she sleep in a real bed after all of that? She slept on the floor in there..that's a lot better than the dentist chairs.
The Twins didn't realize Audrey took hot showers, and they both think the fans must have hated Audrey breaking the rules like that.
(I know Slop Becky hated it.)
Vanessa, still laying on the hammock, announced that she just saw a bat fly over the backyard, and this created quite a stir. The Twins jumped up to investigate. John confirms that he saw it, too, and it is smaller than a bird, but much larger than a bug.
Vanessa demonstrates how both wings flap when the bat flies. For the record, Julia seems more interested in observing wildlife, while Liz seems like the type to swat at the bat with a broom.
Austin: Bats are scary...don't they drink blood?
(Isn't Austin a part-time vampire?)
Vanessa: I don't know about that. But they're blind.
Julia: Oh yeah...blind as a bat...that's where that comes from.
Vanessa: Did you hear that? Listen...they use sonar to get around...did you hear it?
They see the bat again and realize that he is probably flying towards the lights in the backyard in order to catch bugs.
(Unlike the BB Canada house, the BBUS backyard is open air, which is nice, but also allows the occasional drive-by shouter or banner plane to interrupt the game.)
Julia: I love the bat. The bat is so cute.
Johnny: The bat is cute.
Suddenly they heard a loud noise that someone thought was a gunshot, but Johnny thought it was just a production noise of some sort. Based on what he's said about the neighborhood where Temple is, I think he would know what a gunshot sounds like.....
Julia was on bat watch, and seems content to leave this week. At one point, Liz wanted Julia to stay and have her chance to win BB, but then the plan shifted, and Julia will be the one to leave this week. Julia has been very cheery about it, saying she's waving the white flag and all, and is most looking forward to drinking wine in her hotel room.
That sounds like a reasonable request to me.
Johnny played pool with Austin, and commented several times about how good he felt after only two beers. He's used to drinking a lot more, of much stronger beer, and is surprised about his drop in tolerance.
Johnny: I feel good. Is this what two beers does to me now? Two light beers?
Vanessa found a herd of ants on the round chaise lounge. I don't know if you can see them, but they are there, marching in a line across the stripes.
And the scene the next morning, in the old Audrey spot.
Steve was super tired, after all of the frantic activity in the house. I think he really wanted Liz to leave this week, but after Vanessa got through with him I think he accepts that having Julia leave is the correct choice.
It's not the week that Steve wanted to have as HoH...he really hoped to make a huge splash by evicting Austin, but after Austin won the PoV that dream died.
I wonder what the Jury will say when they learn that Julia was voted out over Liz? Whatever they say, it will likely be offensive to Julia.
Ever since their "breakup" last Saturday after Austin won the PoV, Liz has seemed to be super-attached to Austin, more than she was before. I was hoping her anger would last all week and make things super uncomfortable for Austin, and super entertaining for us, but of course that didn't happen.
Austin didn't have to send flowers, or write her a note. He apparently just needed to lay there in his bed and that was enough to bring her back to him.
