She's laying it on thick with Austin as he is set to make his nominations. She tells him to think about it. She doesn't need the money, there is so much he doesn't know about her and it will all be revealed. But, she emphasizes, "I am all about integrity. You and me, we've been through a lot but it's all in the past. I totally have your back."
Vanessa is coming up with theories that the things sent from home are clues. She says that the random photo Austin's family sent to him with the gay guy means "go with the gay" = her! She tells him that in her basket, her family sent her a shell and that it had to be to stay with Shelli.
Austin is waiting to be called to DR for nominations to begin. He is wearing his Judas top hat.
Vanessa comes in (green cap) and starts whispering to him about JM. Apparently Austin got a clown nose in his HOH basket that he doesn't know why. Vanessa comes up with a theory that it's a clue... Clown = Johnny Mac. Austin is going along with it and says that he might wear it during the noms as it will be 'great TV'.
Vanessa tells Austin that she's really upset at Steve and how he behaved last night. She starts to say that Steve is acting shady and she doesn't trust him, but her loyalty is with Austin and the twins. She is sure that Steve would flip the vote and keep John. She rationalizes that Steve is playing an Ian style game and Ian flipped on his alliance.
Austin tells her that he is now in a position of trust with James & Meg so he doesn't want to turn on them yet. Vanessa is still pushing Steve to be the pawn. Austin says that he knew that this was going to be tough when noms are usually pretty easy. Austin says "this will be the week that I'm just going to have to screw someone who thought they were safe." Vanessa tells him "look at incentives of everyone, not what they say."
The convo ends and Vanessa says "Just do me a favor, don't surprise me, just tell me if I'm going up."
Austin asks him "Ok, Vanessa back door or straight up?" Steve tells them that when he went back downstairs Vanessa cornered him in the bedroom asking if they had a problem. Steve wants to know what to say to her. Julia brings up that Vanessa is a number for them. Steve says "No she's NOT!" Austin says "Thank YOU!" Steve says "you all are saying how Vanessa has been caught in so many lies against them, how can you think she's a number?"
Unclear who target is but Johnny Mac may be in trouble. Austin does not want to put up James or Meg because James has kept them safe and they have a deal. Austin floated the idea to Steve about using him (Steve) as a pawn and Steve is refusing. Liz is saying that this is not the week to go after Vanessa. Austin is thinking asking Vanessa to be a pawn against JM. Steve says Vanessa has told him so many lies this week. They are freaking out (LizTin and Steve). They say that Vanessa is all about "reasons" and they each have "reasons" to take Vanessa out.
2:08a BBT - Vanessa comes into HOH. Austin tells her that Steve doesn't want to be a pawn and floats the idea that she should volunteer to be a pawn against JM. She's wiggling out of the idea and trying to convince Steve to do it. Steve says that if he wins POV he would take V down. She doesn't believe him saying that he'd use it on JM. Steve tells Van that he does not have a F2 with JM. She says "okayyyyyyy".
2:13a BBT - Talk goes back to when Jackie put Liz and James on the block during the BOB. Austin asks "was Liz and James" supposed to stay on the block?" Vanessa says "I had no idea, that was the other side of the house". (lie) Topic changes back to who is the pawn against JM. Meg's name goes up and Austin says "well there goes my deal." (Austin made a deal with James that he or Meg wouldn't go up). Vanessa says that Meg should agree to be pawn since she hasn't done/won chit.
Austin says it shouldn't be this difficult because they all have votes to keep each other safe. Vanessa goes on saying that her problem is being up against someone that Steve has an allegiance to (JM). She brings up that Steve was already voting against her when she was up against Shelli. Steve fights her on his vote wouldn't have mattered. Vanessa says she's hesitant because this should be a no risk (that Steve is pawned) and it's an indication that he doesn't have trust in her (and them). Steve doesn't waiver.
2:22a BBT - Vanessa reminds Austin of all she's done for him, not putting him up for the BD and how far they've come since. She has shown his loyalty to him since etc etc. Austin says that he needs to think about everything and reconvene in the morning. Austin asks Vanessa to come up with something to say to Meg (if she's used as pawn). Vanessa asks Steve if he has any ideas and Steve says "I done, I don't have anything more to say at this point." Vanessa is pissed. Austin says they all need to go to bed. Vanessa asks for 3 minutes alone with Austin and he says "No more, I just need to get some sleep."
Liz asks what JohnnyMac said to her when she went to talk to him. Vanessa said that JM wouldn't say a word to her. They both say that JM hates her and Becky hates her as well. She kneels down on the couch with them and starts in "I don't understand where the hate is coming from? I'm a nice person and I haven't done anything to either one...... " blah blah blah... even throws in her beanie grab...
Vanessa is telling them that JM is having a mental disorder. She says "he listens to that screamo music!"
This is the only thing that makes losing Internet and computer worthwhile. I don't have to see or hear Vanessa on feeds. Steve and John both blew the chance to get her out <Angry> I'm coming close to Frankie hate with this nutcase
First of all.... Welcome Back Pudds!!!:multistars:
I agree, although I still have a long way to go for "Frankie Hate" .. (he's so much further on the scale than ANYONE!)
I understand the strategy of "keeping a bigger target than yourself in the house", but my gawd...... GET HER OUT!
It's getting to the point where if they don't get her out, they're going to start losing their own "allies". I sure hope she goes in total blanket mode (ala Audrey) and she becomes a backdoor target since right now either JM or Becky are goners.
I'm really glad that they are finally seeing through Vanessa's lies. I just can't believe how she thinks she's such a nice person that doesn't lie. I wonder what her poker playing companions think of her after seeing her on BB.
Julia : Do you think Austin is throwing things? (comps)
Liz : No, I think he just sucks (!)
Julia is telling Liz that she needs to be careful with Austin because Austin thinks he's won HOH. Liz says she knows and Austin is really pissing her off. Julia says "If he thinks that he's sleeping up here all week and I get stuck sleeping downstairs, he's wrong!"
Becky and Johnny Mac are on the block. Liz says her target is Johnny Mac. She says he's not talked to her at all, game or otherwise and she thinks that if he would've won HOH he would've targeted her or her sister. Becky is a pawn and knew it beforehand.
*prior to noms, Liz Austin Julia James Meg were talking in HOH. They are working together and are planning to keep Vanessa and Becky both in the house to go after each other. Becky had come up to HOH and spoke with the 5 and was told she would probably be a pawn. She thinks Vanessa is the target back door.
The "group of five" are calling themselves the Scamperers <Disgusted>ollseyes:
