HoH Competition Aftermath - Wisdom From the Dentist, Paranoia From the Poker Player #BB17

A few hours after the live show ended, everyone had showered and is laying around recovering from the stress of the day and discussing their various aches and pains from the competition.

Steve Moses has some different aches and pains though...his wisdom teeth are giving him a lot of trouble.  Several of the house guests say that you don't have to have them taken out.

Johnny Mac:   You kids, wanting to keep your wisdom teeth.  Just get rid of them and be done with it.

Liz:  Do you know how to do that?

Johnny:  Yes, of course!

Liz:  But they might grow back!

Johnny:  Not true...and you don't need them to chew...they're tough to clean.  I know there are dentists out there who tell those lies to their patients, but they're a bunch of jerks...they should read a book some time and learn.  That's actually one of my pet peeves.  And what happens is that they are so hard to clean that they end up affecting the teeth next to them, and then they need to get pulled, too.

Liz remembers Victoria from BB16 being in immense pain when her wisdom teeth were coming up and down and she "PTFO" in the bathroom.  Johnny Mac loved "PTFO" and laughed at that.

(Passed The Fuck Out)

(I discussed Victoria's PTFO episode here.)

Liz said Victoria's face was so swollen and Johnny confirms that this is what happens.

Johnny:  But Steve's teeth aren't coming up and down...they're already there.

Liz:  What should Steve do?  What is there for him?

Johnny:  Amoxycillin (sp?)...he's got gum infection around the tooth.

Austin:  Well, let's take care of it!  We have a dentist's chair....

Johnny:  I need a temporary California dentists license first.

Austin got his wisdom teeth out when he was 18, and Liz had her's taken out, too.  Steve opened up wide and showed Liz.

Liz:  Oh my god-ah!

(It probably looks like a tooth, right?  Maybe with some red swelling nearby?)

Meg had a strong reaction to it, too.  She still has her wisdom teeth, and "joked" that her's are growing in sideways.

Austin said that the DR brought up the house guests' complaining that he eats too much and someone mentions Jason.  I guess Jason complained constantly about Austin making a meal out of a dozen eggs.  Production told Austin to shut up about this, of course.

Shelli is munching on a piece of pepperoni pizza and talking about Clay.  She says the two of them are definitely planning to visit Meg at Christmastime, mentioning that it's hard to find a place to stay there so having that hookup is crucial.

Liz wants to go, too, and says she's never been to New York so they might go, too.  Not sure that Shelli was happy about having a huge crowd, or if she knows that three is definitely a crowd with Meg.

The Have Nots are eagerly awaiting midnight so they can eat.  Shelli asked Julia if she plans on baking cookies for the occasion.  They admitted they did have cookie plans.

Shelli: You know...there are some M&M's in the storage could put a few of them on top of the cookies.

Julia: many?

Shelli:  About three...three bags!  Just sayin'...

Liz brought up Clay's sweet tooth, which was a pretty constant issue.

Shelli:  Yeah, he loves sweets.  That's why we're perfect.....

They planned to eat turkey burgers and steak at midnight, and Julia could hardly wait.  She was talking about how hungry she was in the middle of the competition, actually.  They can't imagine how hungry they would be if they hadn't been able to eat two different dinners this week.  

(Chipotle on Tuesday and the Halfway Party pizza and cake on Wednesday.)

In the bedroom Jackie and Vanessa had a low key conversation about the competition.  Vanessa knew that she would not be the winner of an endurance competition, so she tried to find other ways to win.  She scooped up some Crisco to put in her bowl of oil and Production had to tell her to stop and made her take a penalty of sitting out a few laps.

Vanessa:  They never said you couldn't use the Crisco, but they did say you couldn't carry any oil in your clothes or hair.

(Last year, the house guests scooped up "snow flakes"  for their bowls and got away with it, which might help explain this new rule.  It actually caused some drama afterwards, when Christine was suspected of whispering this tip to Nicole during the competition.)

Vanessa:  I'm not tired, I just feel stuck in one place.

Jackie agreed, and said it is a very strange feeling.  She thinks she has to wear her costume for most or all of this weekend, but isn't sure yet.  (One reason why I think she likes to lay in bed, so she can take that armor off.)

Then Jackie asked Vanessa if she could tell her what happened earlier in the day with the drama between Clay and James.  This was like pushing Vanessa'a "On Button" and she started slowly, building to full speed before being stuck on "Repeat".

It's really hard to follow, but basically she claims Clay came to her and told her that Johnny Mac said something to him about her and she should go address him about it.  I actually think I may have witnessed this conversation yesterday and tweeted about it.

So if I follow it correctly, after Vanessa heard this, she went to Johnny Mac and started making a scene about it, asking him over and over again to just tell her if he said it or not.  He just stared at her and never answered.  So then Vanessa went to Clay to shriek at him about it, and Clay ended up telling her he lied.

It's all stupid...all of it, but Vanessa really hammers the point over and over and over, saying the following repeatedly:

*  It was the most random thing!
*  Why Johnny Mac of all people? I haven't been gunning for him and haven't said one thing about him!
* It was so crazy!
*  I haven't done anything!

At some point Meg came in, and Vanessa pushed the reset button and went through the whole thing again!

Vanessa:  It was so know how someone is trying to explain something to you and it's just all scrambled?

Jackie and Meg:  YES.

They finally got to the part about Clay and James almost getting into a fist fight.  Jackie said she'd been involved in enough shit in the house lately, so she just stayed in the bathroom until it was over.

Meg:  Well, I was right here...right here!

Austin said he heard about it when Production came over the intercom.  To be honest, it was about as close to an actual physical fight as I've ever seen on Big Brother, but things calmed down very quickly...probably because no drinking was involved.  In other seasons, people got drunk and started some things they had a hard time coming down from.

Meg:  Today felt like a movie.  I don't even remember being here for most of it.

When they were alone, Jackie and Meg giggled about Vanessa.  Jackie did an impression of Vanessa freaking out that included hands held up like claws and squawking in a high voice.

Becky came in and got an ice pack and settled in to take a little nap before her next DR session.

Vanessa must think everything is sunshine and unicorns, having a smiley session with Steve to apologize to Steve for mentioning the Freaks and Geeks alliance in front of Shelli.

Vanessa:  I was just an idiot!  And I am exhuasted!  But I covered it up well..I told her you were thinking up names for an alliance with us.

She wants Steve to say he thought up the name Beauty, Freaks and Geeks for an alliance if Shelli asks.

Steve is in a lot of pain but Vanessa seemed too manic to notice.

Shelli  shocked the crowd by telling them being a mother has never been her #1 goal in life.  She says she's already been married and divorced, and if she meets the right person and having a baby happens, that would be great.

Shelli:  But you might think I'm 33 so my clock is ticking so I can't wait to get pregnant, but that's not the case.

Everyone liked that answer, even if they were all shocked.  They all thought that Shelli was the perfect wife and mother type.

Shelli:  All of my friends are married with kids...really cute kids.  I go over there and play with their kids and then go home to Rango.

Shelli also has a white cat named Lily that an ex-boyfriend gave her as a gift.  He gave her the kitten and they broke up soon afterwards.  Note that Shelli is just sliding back into the environment in the house, making normal conversation and being friendly.  Too bad Vanessa is not able to do this naturally...because Shelli is really good at it.

They don't understand the prize structure of the competition, and knew it was the first year that they had this format.  Apparently all three prize balls were in the same barrel, so the only way that different people could have won is if a few people were neck-and-neck at the end, but everyone would have wanted to grab the HoH ball.

(Or if several alliance members were together at the end and decided who needed what prize.)

They think the rules will be different next year. 

Julia never learned what happened at the BB Prom they had in the first weeks of the game.  Everyone described who the couples were, how Da'Vonne interviewed everyone as they came down the stairs, and what their talent was.  Julia says Liz never told her all of that, so she would have been screwed if the topic had come up when they were switching out.  Someone asked Liz if Austin was her Prom date.

Liz:'s kind of a sore was Jeff.

They describe how Austin was Jason's date, and how they twirled around with Austin lifting Jason up in the air.

Julia: Oh that is so cute-ah!

They told her Audrey was in her bed that week and didn't want to go to Prom, which left Jace without a date so he didn't go, either.  (Jace should have gone stag and stolen someone else's date.  That's a classic prom scenario.)

They talked about who kept falling in the competition, and Steve stubbornly refuses to admit that he ever fell.  He does admit, however, to sleeping on the floor of his hotel room during the BB casting process.  He doesn't know why he did that, and claims to have never done that before.

Well okay.  Right.


At about 3:35 am, James got called in the Diary Room, and apparently found an America's Player card waiting for him in the chair.  The video was showing FISH, but there was an audio slip of the following:

James:  What? America's Player card?

BB Voice:  Congratulations!

Then back to FISH.

***sigh***  Not this again...


  1. Grodner sucks. This is a last ditched attempt to save Vanessa. If she doesn't go him this week, I'll quit the show this season.

    1. What does "if she doesn't go him" mean?

    2. home..."him" was replaced text on iphone. :D

  2. I like Vanessa and would vote to keep her in the game. Hopefully James does too. :)

  3. Vanessa is overbearing and paranoid......and good liar.....however this will come to haunt her and be her undoing....

  4. On BBAD last night, there was some sort of social media prodding to get the viewers to vote on James' next prank, specifically mentioning Vanessa's green beanie.

    So maybe the America's Player crap will involve stunts like that and not real game initiatives. We have no reason to believe it won't be total crap, however.

  5. It's entertaining but sad that austin doesn't realize that liz is using him. He's such an idiot!! Lol

    1. I love the nomances on bb. We need more of those and less of the next "jejo" crap! God I hate those two.

  6. Vanessa had been my favorite. But I do agree she is playing a very paranoid game now. She needs to disassociate herself from Shelli and Austin. They are the ones who truly need to go. Vanessa needs to stop focusing on making up so many alliances. Vanessa isn't bad, she just has to realise it's Big Brother, not a poker game. She needs to reassess her loyalties. She needs to join the "other side" if she truly wants to make it further in the game.
