This is it, my last Big Brother post – for the year – unless something crazy happens.
It is Thursday night, at 8:30pm, Walker Dennis is sleeping and I’m about to watch Episode 40. Now that our Fall shows are back, our Retro Big Brother Days have come to an end. Watching The Voice and Dancing with the Stars, cuts a lot of time in our nights, as they are an hour and a half long.
Twitter and Tumblr haven’t spoiled this for me, nor has my wife. She isn’t thrilled by the Final Three, so I couldn’t tell by her disappointment, exactly who won. She got spoiled this morning, when she went on Facebook, which I guess Facebook didn’t spoil this for me either.
Let’s learn who the winner of Big Brother 17 is!
fuck~ My wife didn’t watch the show through the cfedits and so I just saw Steve crying and hugging his mother, that’s who I would want to win. Dang it! I know better than to not make sure that I have “Watch from beginning” selected on CBS All Access. Well, let’s see if that is how the episode unfolds.
98 Days, they were in the house.
Julie Chen doesn’t look bad. She really does like wearing the color, black.
Liz gets the first spotlight, which segues into Vanessa. Now we see Steve’s season. The Twin, The Poker Player and the Trombonist.
So many tears, this season.
HoHPart1. First place winner (of the game) gets $500,000 and second place gets $50,000. Production and the cast, are making a big deal of how third place, gets nothing. 41 minutes, Everyone is still on. 1 Hour 57 Minutes, who is doing the voice? Mark Hamill? Probably not. They went from sitting on the disc to the apple bag, itself. 3 Hours, 15 minutes. Powder Sugar was the white substance that I saw, get shot on them. Steve drops! NOOOO!
Part two is always mental, except for Season Eight’s. Vanessa starts with her mind games. Steve is grabbing some popcorn as Liz makes a deal with Vanessa. Liz drops and Vanessa wins! So lame. Steve does end up with some popcorn.
Dr. Will Kirby is back for the Jury House discussion. I believe this is his second or third time, doing that. He’s a good sport. Vanessa’s girlfriend, Mel, is sitting on the other side of Dr. Will.
HoHPart 2. Poor Steve, almost trips! There is a giant crossword puzzle! Liz doesn’t stand a chance. Production loves making the second HoH into something that the houseguests have to climb up on. I imagine that Liz is more fit than Steve, so she may have the speed. Steve finished in, 28:27, seems decent. Liz finished in – 31:11, not too bad. Steve wins! They both got stuck on “Double Eviction.”
Part Three, Steve v Vanessa!
The most pointless part of the finale, Jury House Debate. Austin got shoes. John makes some jokes. Who cares how the individual jurors think the others should vote, as it is up to the individual. Will makes sure that they all know that Vanessa got them all in the jury. Seems like Shelly and James are already voting for Vanessa, which is good, Vanessa has played the hardest. She should win the game, but she wasn’t great about it. It has been very hard to watch. Whoa, John! He doesn’t like Steve, how he was shielded the entire time, whereas Vanessa was on front street. Liz, is an afterthought. Liz played Vanessa’s game. Meg wants a nice person to win, so that would be Liz. Dr. Will brings up the fact if whoever wins Round Three, if they bring Vanessa, that person is chose to not win the game.
They brought back the giant scales, which serves no purpose! Well, it makes me worried that the houseguests are going to fall off of it. Just let them sit in comfy chairs.
Jeff and Jordan! are sitting next to Steve’s parents.
FinalHoH. Scales of Just Us. Liz looks pretty nice,, in her blue dress.
Question One, Shelly’s favorite moment was (B) winning HoH, duh! Steve gets it right, I got it wrong.
Question Two, Jackie’s most annoying thing about the house was (B) the constant paranoia. I got it right, but not those two. There is a super long and weird pause between the jurors.
Question Three, Becky, biggest lie was everything out of Audrey’s mouth.
Question Four. who needs a reality check? Clay or Austin? Meg’s question – Clay!
Question Five, James said (A) was himself was the strongest competitor. He said B, Johnny Mac, all three of us got it wrong.
Question Six, Julia respects Shelly’s game, the most. I have no idea what the score is. Austin, I got it wrong but Vanessa and Steve got it wrong.
Question Seven, Austin said (A) Zingbot mentioning his girlfriend. (B) Zingbot mentioning that Austin stinks. They are tied!
Question Eight. John’s favorite thing about the house, was getting ripped. Vanessa . . . Steve got it right! John didn’t want to drill people’s nasty teeth! Which isn’t great, as that is his job. I hope that doesn’t hurt his job!
Steve has said that taking Vanessa would be a mistake! Oh man, he has to take Liz and win! Vanessa will be brought back, at some point – I’m sure.
Steve has to decide if he wants to win this game or not. Steve wants a moment but Julia says that they are live tv. Steve’s speech to her, is so intense! Is he going to murder her? He evicts Vanessa, but says that she is the strongest female player in the history of the show. Liz didn’t see that coming! Steve just won the game.
Vanessa tells Julie that she saw this coming. She isn’t crying, amazingly enough.
Apparently Bradley Cooper is recurring on that Limitless show, I would thought they would promote that fact. I didn’t see the film nor read the book so I’m not sure how possible that is. CBS Access hasn’t shown Bradley Cooper being in the ads, but my wife said that she saw one.
Madame Secretary got renewed for a second season!?! I thought it got cancelled. I do like Tea Leoni. I saw Morgan Freeman was a Supreme Court Justice, I imagine he only appears in the one episode.
Julie brings out the jury. People do not like Austin. Julia doesn’t want to guess. Austin guesses correctly. Austin is so happy. James got a haircut. Vanessa looks like she is going to cry after Austin’s response. John is happy to see his best friend again.
These three questions are usually so dumb. Johnny Mac, first question. Steve looks so nervous and awkward.
Q1. Steve, I was a good friend to you in this game, why am I wrong in that you didn’t use him and Vanessa. John has such a confident answer, but Julia Chen keeps stopping him. The live audience can’t hear him but we can. So awkward and stupid. “Scramper Squad” is such a dumb name, to say aloud.
Q2. Becky. What moves were Liz and not Austin? So dumb, as Liz won more competitions than him and
Q3. James. Steve is sitting next to a strong competitor. What did he do that wasn’t being a floater? He explains it, pretty well.
Q4. Julia. What is Liz’s strongest game move? Working with her sister and her showmance.
Q5. Jackie. Steve didn’t talk to many people, about game, and those he did work with, said that he didn’t really game with them. Steve used his alliances. I do like how some of his game matches Julia’s, so that was smart to bring her along.
Q6. Austin. He says she looks beautiful and the audience turns on him.
Vanessa didn’t get a prompt to question. These questions are always so easy to imagine an answer.
I just saw the Bradley Cooper commercial of Limitless and now I’m having to hear about it again.
Final Speeches. Julia mentions how much Steve is a Super Fan. Liz loves Julia but doesn’t mention a second person. Her speech seems unrehearsed. Steve seems like his speech is very planned. Steve won 4 HoHs and Liz only has two. Steve mentions how Julia was in a hotel room for the first five weeks. Steve got Vanessa out of the game, Steve just won the game with that speech! Liz just has to smile, through that.
The Votes –
Shelly. Julia loves Liz and Steve’s mom loves him. Shelly is voting with her heart
Jackie. She is proud of both of them. Her vote is for the person who has dreamed of this, “their” entire life.
Becky, looking great. She is extremely glad for who she is voting for.
Meg. Loves them.
James. mentions his own haircut. James is letting Jesus take the wheel, like Carrie Underwood. Instead of just turning into the skid.
Julia. Her vote is obvious, which goes against what Chen said to do!
Austin. He loves Liz and is proud of Steve. Judas has left the building, which gets some boos. He quotes Selene Gomez, the heart wants what it wants.
John. He has to choose between the worst alliance member or . . . he couldn’t come up with an insult for Liz.
Vanessa. No hard feelings against Steve. She votes for who best presents the season.
The six houseguests who didn’t make it to jury, are up next. This segment is always a waste.
Audrey left her crazy pants at home. Shelly is all smiles. They made the jury and these fools switch sides. Davonne thought the most surprising was Austin talking about how Judas was going to own the season and didn’t. He has no decent response. He liked the house too much. So long of a response.
Vanessa has a secret! 90% was the truth. She has four and a half million dollars, and is a professional poker player. So she will be okay.
Jason, he is impressed with Vanessa’s game. She Doctor Will it, Dan it and Derrick it. He mentions what I’ve been saying, she cried as she made big moves. She never owned it.
Julie Chen let Audrey talk and she instantly starts to cry. oh my. She keeps it together.
The winner is next.
I’m sort of excited to see Supergirl.
The Votes –
Shelly – Steve, Julie shows it at the end.
Jackie – Steve (he knew he was going to win!) such a great moment!
Becky – Steve
Meg – Steve
James – Steve
Julia – Liz
Austin – Liz
John – Steve
Vanessa – Liz
Julie went backwards, as she really wanted to know who Vanessa voted for. Which is a nice real moment.
Steve earned that shit!
Life in Pieces, does look good. Glad Person of Interest got a fifth season. CBS All Access refuses to air episodes three through 20, so we can’t get caught up.
Steve should be made mayor of that town of his.
America’s Favorite Houseguest is . . . James! wha!?! Must have been the live feeders.
Top Three are – Johnny Mac, James and Jason.
Steve has no big plans for the money, just be smart with it.
Jace didn’t get to say anything, neither did Jeff, that’s for the better.
