PoV Aftermath - Don't Tell Her What He Told Me Not To Tell You. And So On. #BB17

So if you've been watching the clock and the calendar, we've now had an HoH comp, a BoB comp, and a PoV comp all within 24 hours.  About 22 hours, actually.  It's a Fourth of July thing, though, as I've explained previously.  It's a free country and Alison Grodner Productions can do as they wish.

OK.  Here is a brief update.

PoV Players:  Shelli, Da'Vonne, Johnny Mac, Clay, Steve & Meg

PoV Winner:  Johnny Mac

PoV Competition Type:  Something to do with cornstarch. (Not kidding.)

Off Topic:  I recently bought a container of cornstarch for the first time in my life. I needed it to make the Golden Vanilla cupcake recipe from the Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World cookbook.  I was shocked to find out how light and powdery cornstarch actually crunches like snow when you step on it.  Not that I stepped on my cornstarch, but whatever.  The point is I'm interested to see what other exciting things I can do with this magical product.

OK. Just before the PoV comp, Becky and Jason had a nice chat.  Neither of them was playing in the PoV comp so they could relax a little, I think.  Everyone keeps constantly talking about how tired they are.....I'm tired too, and I didn't have to compete in a vat of cornstarch or sleep in the Root Canal position.

Becky knows that Audrey was talking smack about her, saying that she made some offensive racist comments.  I think the alleged comments were related to Becky's use of a black towel in the bathroom.

If Audrey planned to lie, then she really needed to come up with something more specific or outlandish.  All of the best liars know that is the most effective method, along the lines of "you can't make this up".

Becky planned to show Audrey the backdoor this week if her HoH reign moved past the BoB phase.  She nominated Jason, you know, so this little chat is a good way for Jason to reset with Becky and let her know he's not harboring any bad feelings about it.

And look at how Audrey has slithered back into the woodwork.  She was everywhere on the live feeds the first few days, and now she's rarely seen.  I'm not sure if Becky targeting her is a good idea, since it sounds like her reasons are primarily personal.

From what I've heard Becky say, she did not get her letter from her parents in her HoH basket, because they either refused to "sign the waiver" or withdrew their previously-filed paperwork.  According to Becky, this is directly related to Audrey's racist allegations.  Becky's family doesn't want to get the Aaryn Treatment, even though no one is comparing those two situations.

I actually heard James tell Audrey that Becky is down with the swirl and has dated basketball players, so he was positive Becky would never even think those type of things, much less say them.

(James did not actually say "down with the swirl", but I'm sure you understand.)

Also I just want to point out that it is July in Southern California and Becky is dressed like she's ready to sip cocoa by a crackling fire after a long day on the slopes.

After the PoV, Johnnny Mac celebrated by flossing vigorously.  Maybe he got some cornstarch stuck in there or something.  He's a quiet winner, and does not gloat.

Steve was excited about things, and stood in the bedroom talking to Austin, whom you can't see in this picture. Speaking of quiet, Young Steve has been building a little network of people to talk to, and seems much more comfortable in the house.  He's also setting himself up to work with a variety of different people, and seems to be slipping off the radar.

And speaking of radar, Da'Vonne just keeps putting herself right in the center, the target.  She has been nervous and out-of-sorts ever since the HoH competitions ended, and now that she has lost both the BoB and PoV competitions, she seems to have just given up.

She pulled Shelli into the lounge and immediately started the conversation in a very negative way.  I'm not sure if she's even aware that she was coming off that way, but it was aggressive and uncomfortable to watch.

Da"Vonne:  I just want to know when I became the target this week instead of Audrey.

Shelli:  Well, you were both the targets.

The whole time they spoke, Da'Vonne was moving her left hand in circles over her leg and knee.  It was fascinating to watch, and must be compulsive.  She's just so nervous and seems to be on the verge of bawling.  I think she just feels like everyone in the house has deserted her, so the sadness of that has put a bit of a damper on her anger.

For now, at least.


1.  I have been a big Da'Vonne fan from the start, but she has really been her own worst enemy.  She knew everyone was aware of her temper and that they were expecting her to explode in the house.  As Vanessa said, "we all know she's going to explode, but you don't want to be the one she blows up on".

2.  Day knew that Audrey had been talking trash about her, and when Audrey approached her to "clear the air" last week it was just too much for Da'Vonne.  We all loved it when she went off on Audrey, but it was not good for Day's game.  If Vanessa hadn't walked into the room and asked Audrey a pointed question, things might not have turned out like they did.  Or turnt up as they did.  But we'll never know.

3.  Da'Vonne knew she made a big error by blowing up on Audrey, and told this to Jeff and James, saying that in a sense she was doing it for the whole house, but it ended up backfiring on her.  And of course it took Jeff about 5 minutes to run and find Clay and tell him everything Da'Vonne just said. And for Clay to tell Jeff that is why Day was Shelli's target from the beginning, even though Shelli told Clay REPEATEDLY not to tell anyone that, and to let them think Audrey was getting backdoored.

4.  Day should have confessed to Vanessa about her real job, since Vanessa already knows she's lying.  It would have been a great opportunity for both of them to share a secret that could bond them in the game.  I think Vanessa truly wished that she and Da'Vonne could work together later in the game, but now that someone else is wiling to take Day out, she's all for it.  Day was a risk factor for Vanessa, but Da'Vonne could have made herself an ally (even though Vanessa doesn't want to align herself with players who are not in control of themselves).

And speaking of Vanessa, she seems to be the one who starts playing a character when she's in costume, rather than Austin/Judas.  Maybe this is Lady Maverick wearing the shades and doo rag, placing bets and calculating her odds.  She's checking here....she went up to the HoH to give Shelli some advice on what to do now that one of her nominees has won the PoV.

Shell told Vanessa that "they" (i.e. she and Clay) were going to try and get Johnny Mac not to use the PoV, and to keep the nominations the same.

This is why Lady Maverick wears those shades, so you can't see her thinking "BITCH PLEASE".

(But Vanessa will never say that....and Lady Maverick has her emotions in check.)

Right on cue, Johnny Mac shows up in the HoH and Shelli gets right to it, telling him it would be great if he could leave the nominations as they are, since Da'Vonne is the target.

John:  If I don't use the PoV, then the whole alliance will be outed, and everyone will hate us.

Shelli:  Well, who do you think I should put up in your place?

John:  I don't care.   (Great answer.)

Vanessa asked for a private word with Shelli, and said that she needs to put up a woman, because the guys are not available.  She mentions that Jason and Steve can't go up since they won the BoB.  Shelli just nods.

(What about James?  I know no one wants to waste an HoH on him, but still.  Production would be fine with that.)

At one point Clay piped up and said that Shelli could put him up, since everyone would vote Day out over him (oh is that right, Clay?  ha ha ha).

Shelli:  I'm not going to put you up.  Just stop talking.

(ha ha ha)

Vanessa knows that Shelli doesn't want to put up Audrey, so she pushes for Liz, Meg or Jackie.  During this conversation they kind of settled on Meg, but later on the plan shifted to Liz.

I can see where Jason would think Johnny Mac might be the twin in the house.  He does have a lot of different expressions and a multitude of disturbing stares.

In all of these meetings, Clay is just all "we want to do this, we want to do that", while Shelli is all "I want to do that, I want to do that."  I think Clay's relative immaturity and lack of impulse control is going to get real old, real fast for Shelli.

Just a guess.  The Johnny Bravo haircut is growing on me though, I have to say.

On a completely different note, there are hijinks in the bedroom with a large blow-up giraffe.  I don't know where she came from, but they are really giving her the business.

James:  She's got a donk!

Meg tried to put her sports bra on the giraffe but said it didn't fit--she said they might need to get one of Becky's tops for better coverage for the giraffe.
