PoV Ceremony Aftermath - People Expose Themselves #BB17

If Jeff had played TAR as hard as he's playing Big Brother today, he'd already have his half million dollars.  He'd be too busy for all of this mess today.

He and James strolled out on the bridge to assess the damage of the PoV Ceremony.  (Steve saved himself, Jace was put on the block).

Jeff:  Liz already came up to me and threw Austin under the bus. She told me he threw my name out last week.  She's trying to jump ship now.

James:  Well, she knows the people she's with are in trouble.

Jeff:  Yeah, but how can we use that?

James:  Huh?

Jeff:  How can we take advantage of that in the game?

The cameras pull back to show us how they can see the bridge up close, or far back like this.  The boys are just a few stick figures over the TV screen, to the left.

And up close from this side.

The thing with Jeff is, right now he's just throwing his cards around all over.  He's not in fear of being caught playing the game.  It's fun to watch.  James better solidify with Jeff and a few others outside of Team Audrey, because if their side isn't in power next week he's going to see how ugly things can get.

Apparently Liz had some sort of wardrobe malfunction during the ceremony.

Jeff, rubbing his eyes:  I was like, what?

James:  I know!  I was like, can we get an instant replay?

(ha ha ha)

Da'Vonne looks pretty today.  They're all concerned with Jace and his reaction to this.  They're worried for him, but also for themselves.

Da'Vonne:  That was awkward.  You don't even know where to look during that ceremony.

Meg:  I sure didn't look over at Jace ...not once!

And On Another Note: A Fight Breaks Out in the #BBUK House as the Ham Hits the Floor

I was watching BBUK up until BB17 cranked up.  Then I had no time for it, even though I miss Emma Willis. But when I heard there was a fight that required intervention, I had to take a quick look.

Someone threw a ham sandwich!

You can read the article here.

But I don't remember these people....Danny looks familiar to me, but this girl and the other guy have me scratching my head.

Did they bring in new people?

Where's Pie Face Jack?

How could you choke down a ham sandwich with no mustard?  No pickles?  No swiss cheese?

Jeff Joins the Game, And Da'Vonne's Ready to Play #BB17

Austin and Jace had a high-energy meeting with Jeff, where they discussed how Audrey is starting drama with everyone, then running away to watch when the bomb blows up.  Even though Austin and Jace have had a sort of combative relationship with Jeff, they now realize where the trouble lies.

(For example, Jace and Austin make fun of Jeff's Dad Bod when no one is listening.  Except us.)

Jeff is all hyped up over Audrey, saying that "as a man, he can't go back over to that side".

While they talk, both Austin and Jeff say if "she" catches them talking, she will have a fit.  Jace didn't say that, but of course Jace is pretty sure he's going home.  Jace left the room, then Jeff.  Austin composed himself at the door before leaving, humming a little tune.  Maybe the music he enters the ring to...who knows.

Jeff went straight to find Da'Vonne and got right to the point.  Audtrey is trouble, and is causing trouble for everybody.  Da'Vonne tried to act at first like she wasn't part of any alliance, but Jeff said, "you're on the outs're going to need to fight to stay in this game."

Jeff:  The reason why Audrey is feeding all of the fighting as a smoke screen, so she can sit back and play the puppet master.  We can't let her win.

Da'Vonne has a good poker face, calculating and shrewd.

Jeff:  She's the reason you and Clay are fighting!  She keeps playing all this bull shit!  We have to get her out!

Da'Vonne:  We have to get her out!

Steve got called to the DR, and everyone started scrambling around, getting ready for the PoV ceremony.  They know its going to be hot outside today, but some of them wear jeans, anyway.

A little while ago:

Audrey started furiously whispering to Shelli about Vanessa.  Then she says Clay is trying to be Captain America around there and it's going to backfire on him if he isn't careful.

This is the kind of thing that upsets Shelli...whenever she sees Audrey or Clay alone they just start unloading game info and it is overwhelming.  Audrey is going to backdoor Vanessa if she wins HoH.

Audrey:  If two of their group get HoH next's going to be bad...

Audrey said Austin is playing this game without a brain...he has two remote controls attached to his head.  And Vanessa is walking around the house like "i Robot".

(ha ha ha)

Clay came in and vigorously denied that Vanessa was working with Austin.  Audrey argues back (and she's right).

Audrey: I walked by that bitch this morning and said 'good morning' and she just looked at me.  I can read that bitch like a Hooked on Phonics book, and she is going to hold a grudge.  No matter what she says, everything she says to you about her life is a lie!

Clay says he's trying to keep communications open with everybody, and that Audrey needs to calm down.  Now Audrey kind of threatens Clay by saying that she doesn't want all of this to get around and damage Clay's reputation.

The outdoor lockdown was called, and Audrey goes to her makeup station in the hallway.  She says she's going to "dress down" for the PoV in response to several questions.  No one seems to know how to dress since it's the first one.  They ask Audrey if they have to sit out there a long time today, like she's part of Production or something.

Does Audrey watch the live feeds?  Because she should know that she's been wearing that same T-shirt for at least 24 hours.  Or longer, even.  And there is a lot of picture-taking going on this week.  She might want to start slipping in some new outfits.  You know, for some variety.

False eyelashes, applied in a flash.  Impressive.

Austin still knows' he's losing his friend.  But he has a new friend now:  Jeff.

And they're going to bro down and do whatever Vanessa says.  But she better be careful what she tells him, because Austin doesn't have a filter.  He told Audrey point blank today that he is "extremely close with Vanessa", and that she encouraged him to play down his physicality.

I hate to say it, but Austin may not have the sense god gave a milk cow.

Becky can't find one of her mouse slippers.  I can't remember their names, but she names one of them as missing.  James says he heard "one of 'em was running around outside", but he wasn't sure.

Becky is so thrilled.  I can tell she thinks her slippers are going to be the next Bear Shirt.  Or at least the Bunny Slippers.

Jason might be a little worried.  He's one of the six people who could be put up today during the PoV.
I don't think he will, though. James was pretty set on nominating Jace.  The person who needs to worry though, is Jackie.  She's the pawn, but Vanessa has four whole days to change the vote around.  And she's said herself that she's only had one conversation with Jackie this whole time, and it was about "the letters".

You know, the letters that they used to spell words with in the PoV competition.  I think they had to pick the letters out of a giant nose.

No kidding.  Do you think I would make that up?

And here's Meg, looking cute for the PoV ceremony.

Jason:  You look very T. Swift today.

That's probably just the look Meg was going for, to help ensure James doesn't put her in the nomination chair today.

James supposedly proposed to Taylor Swift on the live feeds when he was drunk.

Meg's dad is a mayor in New Jersey, though. So he can whip up those restraining orders lickety split if necessary.

Clay is whispering, and making them both nervous.  All three of them have a possibility of getting some bad news in the next hour, but not a high probability.

In the Wee Hours of Sunday: Let Us Prey #BB17

There were apparently a lot of twists and turns in the house last night, as time races forward to the PoV ceremony scheduled for Monday.  Somebody is getting put up on the block in Steve's place, and it can't be any of the following people:

*  James (HoH)
*  Steve (PoV winner)
*  Jackie (already on the block)
*  Becky (BoB winner)
*  John  (BoB winner)
*  Da'Vonne (Fast Forward winner)
*  Vanessa  (Fast Forward winner)
*  Liz  (Fast Forward giftee)
*  Austin  (Fast Forward giftee)

So that leaves only Audrey, Meg, Shelli, Clay, Jace, Jeff or Jason.  The word in the house for the last few days is that Jace will go up, and then out the door.  But with a couple of days to go before the PoV is actually used, anything can happen, really.

(Except the list of stuff I made above of things that can't happen.)

Anyway.  I'm skipping around in the wee hours of last night to catch up with the action.  Vanessa sat with Austin in the bathroom area and I didn't hear the whole conversation, but I think she was telling him that this whole Jace situation is going to hurt his game.

Then Clay and Jace came in there and the room was suddenly full of bare man meat.

Vanessa needs the night off, she says.  There is a lot going on in the house and she needs a break.

Vanessa went down the hall to the lounge room (but they call it the "hammock room" because when they first came in the house, the room contained a big hammock) where Audrey, Jackie and Becky were relaxing.

Well, we know that "relax" is not a tool in Audrey's toolkit.  She is in there listening and looking for more opportunities to make sure everyone else hates each other.

Vanessa:  There is so much happening in this house!  I just need to step out and chill for a little while.

Everyone:  What do you mean?

Vanessa:  I was just trying to lay in my dental chair, and apparently everyone feels comforted in that room, since it's a dentists' office, and they keep coming in and talking about shit.

Everyone:  What shit?

Vanessa:  Just whatever!  And I don't want to hear it.  I don't want to know!  I feel like something is going to happen....tomorrow is going to be rough.  Something's going to blow...

The girls were laughing about some sort of wardrobe issues with someone in the house and wondered if that would be the source of the problem.

Vanessa:  Is it me?  Too much green beanie?

Becky:  No, but you said you don't want to know.

Vanessa: No, I don't!

Meanwhile, in the dentist's office, this is Julia. (right?) So Liz and Julia seem to be switching out at least once per day.

If you didn't watch BB5 (Project DNA - Do Not Assume) then here is the deal: the BB5 Fitness Twins would meet in the DR, where there was one of those folding screen walls set up to give them privacy.  They would switch clothes behind the screen and have a few minutes to debrief each other before switching places. The twin coming out of the game would hurridly tell the other who was mad, who was sad, and what they said about it.  They both said it was always scary to walk out of that DR and try to blend back into the game.

And FYI, those twins did not look identical at all.  One of them had a very different body shape than the other, so they tried to disguise it but it was hard.  One of the house guests later said she noticed that "Adria's butt was getting bigger" and felt like an idiot for not realizing what was happening.

Liz and Julia seem to have similar bodies, but it's the face that looks different.  Very different, to me.  And probably to you, too.  As I always say, it's easy if you know how to do it.

A little later, it looked like people were starting to settle down in the bedroom.  Then Becky came over and flopped down in the bed between James and Jeff.

They joke that Meg is giving Becky the stink eye from the other side of the room.  (Because Meg and Jeff are a little sweet on each other...)

FYI Becky's slippers look like mice and I think she bought them in Germany.  She gave them different names like pets and I think the guys have pranked her by taking them while she's asleep and placing them in different places in the house.

Becky doesn't want to start any trouble with Meg, and admits this.  Now that I look at Becky, I'm totally getting the Jen Garner resemblance.  She's totally 13 Going on 30.

From across the room, James and Jeff are telling Steve how to put the move on Meg.  Steve takes off his glasses and tries to give Meg a smoldering look, but she just laughs.

Becky announces she is making breakfast for everyone tomorrow...a big family breakfast.  Someone mentioned the Have Nots but Becky just brushed right over that.

The zipper on Steve's sweatshirt got messed up, so Shelli tried to fix it for him.

She called for her make up kit, so she could use the tweezers to fix it.  Steve said he is thankful, because he doesn't know anything about clothes.

This is readily apparent from the way Steve tried to put his hoodie back on.  Could this look any more awkward?

Jeff was making himself a late night breakfast, and somehow an egg jumped out of the bowl and onto the carpet.  They scurried around trying to clean it up.

Vanessa, laughing:  Oh...this carpet is going to be so gross.

(I think eggs are totally gross.  And they smell like sulpher once you stop eating them.  So that is gross, too.)

I think Steve touched Vanessa's teeth in her memory wall picture and it freaked her out.  It was "bad mojo" to touch her teeth, she said.  Steve said he would try to remember that.

Vanessa likes Steve's picture on the memory wall, but he says he doesn't.  One of his teeth bothers him in all of his pictures.

The camera closes in for us.

Or are they trying to show us that the two house guests with arguably the highest IQ's in the house, and maybe even Top Five IQ's of all BBUS players, haven't noticed that Liz's face has been morphing back and forth throughout the game.  I even read somewhere that Julia might even have a small mole on her face.

And I think the picture on the memory wall might be a morphed shot of Liz and Julia.  Right?  Maybe to give the twist a fighting chance?

(FYI  If the Fitness Twins got to Week #5 of BB5, then both of them could be in the game.  So that is what happened, but those girls were such a threat that they were both evicted soon afterward.  They actually would sit in a corner in a roomful of people and whisper with their hands up.  I called it the "WhisperFest" and thank god we didn't have Twitter back then, because a huge pack of Fitness Twin Fans really let me have it.  They all seemed like  big, scary girls.)

(But the twist reveal on the live show that week was one of my favorite episodes ever. All the BB5 house guests got got.  And got got hard.)

Jeff was making an omelet, and he found a bunch of chopped onions and peppers in the fridge, neatly placed in plastic containers.  He dumped some in the bowl.  He also has bacon cooking, but I was too slow on the button to take a picture of that.

I think Jackie has been in the HoH tonight and probably saw her old buddy Jeff in the kitchen on the spy cam.  She came downstairs and sat quietly, watching.  From what I heard the other girls insinuating in the lounge room, I think Jackie has been isolating herself, maybe having a hard day.

Are you depressed Jackie?

Her skin is amazing.  She should not be sad, with skin like that.  You look great in HD, Jackie, so don't worry about that.

James likes to bro out with Jeff, and he teased Jeff about using all of his veggies and not thanking him.  Apparently James is like a little kitchen elf, and says he chopped up all of those peppers and onions and Jeff "didn't even offer him none".

So Jeff did fix a plate for James.  And they both chowed down.  It's about 3:00 am, by the way.

Also, I took this picture a million years ago.  Or maybe Friday.  Because I love the floor of the HoH room.
