Who goes home, Shelli or Vanessa? Also, Double Eviction? Will we break the streak of disappointing double evictions? It use to be, it was the nice to get a big gun out of the house, now it just seems to be floaters.
For those keeping track, we are now on Season Five, Episode 15. Chenbot says “But First” so often! The cast is starting to grow on me. Fun to watch the original twin twist and the beginnings of PoV, as they started the six players – but the three players get to hand pick their partners, instead of leaving it up to chance.
Becky really wants Vanessa out of the house. Vanessa starts to game, she really doesn’t understand what is happening around her.
I just love James’ running gag of scaring people. Keeps people on their toes and breaks up his day.
Vanessa gets into James’ head and he starts wanting to not work with Becky, which is all Vanessa needs to stay in the house.
Since we are 17 seasons in, the houseguests just wait for double eviction night. Though the trend hasn’t started yet in Retro Big Brothers. Julie mentions, again, that a juror may return to the game. I thought with the twin (Julia) joining the house, Production wouldn’t need to do a bonus week.
Speeches. Shelli wastes a bunch of time to give shout outs to Jason (whose birthday was Thursday) and Clay. Vanessa keeps it about game.
The Vote –
Austin (Judas) – Shelli
Steve – Shelli
James – Shelli
Meg – Shelli
Jackie – Shelli
It is official, Shelli is the first Jury member
Julia – Shelli
John – Shelli (John has a fun exchange. What do you want? Yeah, whatever – so fun!)
Liz – Shelli
Everyone is dressed like it is a quiz. No clown shoes repeat.
Something I’ve learn, is that Julie Chen loves to ask questions about Showmances. Shelli thinks Steve and John are her boyz, that makes me think more of her.
The houseguests saw several loops (gifs) which will be important, for the challenge.
HoH comp – True or False questions
Question One – Everyone got it right
Question Two – James / Liz / Meg / Jackie are out
Question Three – Everyone got it right (Austin / Steve / Julia / John / Vanessa)
Question Four – Julia and Vanessa are out
Question Five – Everyone got it right (Austin / Steve / John)
Question Six – Austin and John get it wrong – Steve is HoH! Shame, we don’t get to see his HoH room.
Who will Steve nominate? He has a commercial break to figure it out! One has to be Becky, for sure.
Nominations – Meg and Jackie, the heck!?! Is he hoping to back door Becky? hmmmm
Julia looks good in that blue dress.
PoV (this when clown shoes happen and Jeff got out). Brendan was the other last big gun taken out in Double Eviction night. I’m not really sure who would be considered a big gun, this season. Either Vanessa or James, I guess.
Random Draw – Players are – Vanessa / Meg / James / John / Steve / Jackie
They have three minutes to play, if no winner, whoever has the most balls.
John wins! I imagine he uses it, if Steve wants him too.
John doesn’t use the Veto! oh man, this does feel like a waste.
Steve is sort of freaking out, so I guess Steve didn’t ask John to use the Veto (or he did and John chose to go against him). Which makes sense as John is working close with Becky.
Becky is crying, as she knows she was the target.
I do feel bad, as usually, the second person who goes home, isn’t the other nominated houseguest, so their bags are not packed.
The Vote –
Vanessa – Jackie
Becky – Meg
John – Jackie
Austin – Jackie
James – Jackie
It is official, Jackie is gone
Liz – Jackie
Julia – Jackie
Jackie is gone, they don’t typically show a hint of HoH. Steve looks super disappointed, he wasted his HoH. That’s why you never backdoor, but put up your targets.
By now, this is old news but Liz becomes HoH.
. . .
Assuming this is Jackie’s last chance in the game, here are some pictures that I’ve been holding back –
