Scenes From Today - Preparation for the 1st Live Show - #BB17

The house guests are locked inside as the backyard is prepared for the live show.  Austin got up early today, and did his stretches in the living room.

Liz got up early, too strolling though the house.  I'm sure the Have Nots had a new lease on life today, since their big dinner last night. Or I guess it's possible they had a rough night, like the Survivors do after they win a food reward.  (If you know someone who has played Survivor, you should ask them about that sometime.)

Da'Vonne and James stared at the memory wall, muttering to each other under their hands.  These two are plotting, big time.  They feel they are solid with Jason, but James says they need two more people to make it work.  He suggests Jeff and Meg.

James looks at Liz's picture and tells her that it looks nothing like her.  Liz (or Julia, whatever) did a good job deflecting attention from this.

Liz:  Oh yeah.  Well now I have these long dark roots.

Day asked her if she requested color to touch it up (they only get that if they are HoH) and Liz launched into talking about how she used to use "Sun In" on her hair and it caused a lot of damage.

(I think that picture must be a morph between Liz and Julia.  Has to be, right?)

They discuss James' picture and how wacky it is.  His hair has grown a lot, already.

At one point Day whispered to James "stay right there for a minute" and walked off the screen for a short time.  She came right back and apparently had walked down the hall to see if she could see James in his seat.  She couldn't, so she came back and told him that spot was a "safe place" to sit and talk, and that it was probably legit because it is right in front of the memory wall.

That Day is smart, but very paranoid.

After the HoH lockdown, Da'Vonne spent some time trying to untangle a necklace.  That can be a tricky process, if the chain is really fine.

It would suck to be the Twin who doesn't get to be on the live show, right?  That is why I'm thinking we may see something exciting tonight, like a live switch in the Diary Room.

Maybe Liz can go in there and cast a joint Twin vote with Julia, and then Julia can walk back in the living room and sit down on the couch.  They would have to take their turn at the commercial break so they could switch clothes, right?

I would love to see that, Alison Grodner.

It's a nasty knot, apparently.

I'm hoping Austin wears a shirt tonight.  I am ready for him to start wearing a shirt around the house.  Clay, I'm fine with though.

Audrey is very quiet right now, but is not missing one part of any conversation.  Her eyes tell all.

They must already have their voting order numbers.  Audrey tells Shelli that she is "9".

Shelli:  Right in the middle, then..

No..later I heard them talking about the numbers---they think the numbers might put them in pairs to compete tonight.  Liz is "2".  Shelli pointed out that it all might depend on who gets evicted, since they might want to balance out the men and the women.

We got a flash of Big Jeff hosting this week's live feed highlight reel.  The highlight reels will change every week and are usually really funny the first three or four times you see them.  Last year Jeff had the freshly-evicted house guest sit with him to comment on the highlights, which was fun.  I'm sure they will do that this year, too.

FYI Jeff is really serving up the comedy as he narrates.  Lots of puns.  Like, a lot of puns.

New eyebrow shape, too.  I don't mind when men clean up their eyebrow area, but I don't like to notice it, if that makes sense.

We go right back to the live feeds, where Vanessa is low talking with Steve, letting him know that whoever he is confiding in is not keeping things quiet.

Steve:  I'm not sure what you're talking about.

Vanessa:  I just want to let you know I heard that you are telling someone things, and they're not keeping it quiet.

Steve: Thank you for that information.

Austin comes in and they whisper some more.  He thinks tonight might be the comp where they carry liquid down the lanes to fill up the bowls.

(If that's the case, whoever gets Austin or Clay on their team should be in good shape.  But it does take a lot of cardio endurance, so that might not be great for Austin.  And when he slips and falls, it's a long, long way to the floor.  If Jace gets to stay tonight, I think he would be LETHAL in that competition, after watching him run and do hurdles over the lounge chairs last week.)

Vanessa told Day that Meg was sobbing this morning up in the HoH.  I think it might have been related to something Audrey said to her but I'm not sure.

Clay is letting James take the clippers to his head.  James was really funny about it, saying that if he messes up the live feeders are going to kill him since Clay is America's favorite pretty boy.  Liz says that hairstyle is really popular right now, so I fear it will be like that shearing Derrick gave Cody late last year.  (Ooooo, that was bad.)

Clay stood up and gave it a look before sitting back down in the chair.  Audrey is really serving it up over there.  Maybe she can get a shampoo commercial after this.

Shelli is kind of micro-managing Clay's haircut, even though she is making favorable comments about it.

Jace addressed his mother through the camera, saying he loved her and she is the best mother in the world.  He doesn't know if he's coming home to see her or not, but he loves her.

Vanessa asked him if he would want to stay in sequester in order to come back in the house.

Jace:  Absolutely!  There are definitely some people in this house who need to be taken out!

Day:  Well, there you go!

Jace: Ha!  You feel the same way I do.

Jace got a close up:  I've had some good food.  I've eaten some really shitty food.  I made some good friends.  I probably lost some good friends.  I worked out a few times.  I read my Bible, which I never do.

Jace:  And maybe pretty girls like this one will miss me, even though they haven't been acting like it!

This leads to a semi-serious conversation, where Liz says in the last few days, she feels like she saw the real Jace, and she "wasn't about it".  She said he seemed bi-polar going around saying all kinds of shit to people, and she heard he talked some trash about her, too.

Jace told her about the stress of being nominated, and feeling betrayed and not knowing how to handle it.  They ended up hugging it out and Liz said she would hang out with him after this is all over.

OMG.  It was a damn hatchet job.

But Clay is still a babe, obviously.  Meg squeals from the shower that he looks like a city boy hipster now.

Clay:  Oh, I know you like that!  A hipster!  I'll have to beat you off with a stick now!

(That is a southern expression, ya'll.)

Vanessa getting her glam on.  Will she wear sunglasses on the live show?

Jace did some singing and a little rapping in the kitchen and it didn't sound bad, actually.  If Chet Haze can do it, then Jace can too, dammit.


  1. WOW, u Nailed it with the Twin switching during the Live voting... have u been watching BB5 to see if they did it back then?, lol... but good for u, that was good calling that... :-)

  2. Yeah. I really did.

    It' is so hard for them to do what they're doing. So many little details they need to discuss that are outside of the game. Like where she's sleeping now that she's not a HN, where their clothes are now, why there are Chinese leftovers in the's mind-boggling, really.
