Big Brother 17 is heating up quick and we’ve got some major spoilage to cover! Going into the Battle of the Block, Austin and Vanessa had set it up so that James and John would lose, thus putting Vanessa in power. The reason for this plan was so that they could go after James and/or Jeff depending on Veto scenarios.
In advance of the competition, Austin and Vanessa had been telling the house that their main target was backdooring Audrey. In fact, they were telling Audrey otherwise, (although she is uncertain about believing it) and targeting James or Jeff. Though I am sure they have their reasons, it seems unnecessary to mislead the house and get points against yourself just to target a seemingly random twosome.
Whatever the case, Big Brother spoilers via the CBS Live Feeds revealed that James and John did, in fact, lose the BotB competition, therefore sending Meg and Jason to the safezone for the week. Vanessa will keep control of the house now. Their plan seems to be set in motion.
John was supposed to throw the competition but for two straight weeks he really did not have to do that. James (like DaVonne before him) was so bad at it that it almost seemed like he was the one in on the plan to throw it. John was relatively unscathed in the process, but he does still sit on the block. That has to be nerve-wracking for him.
Now that James and John are on the block, what can we expect? The Veto comp is coming and certainly someone could win and pull James down. In that case, the plan is to replace him with Jeff. Votes-wise, this seems to be rather straightforward, but you never can tell. Big Brother season 17 has been turning on a dime and we can never tell what is coming from day to day.
For now, James and Jeff need to win something to stay safe. The question is…do they realize that? We will see very soon! Keep checking CDL for all your BB17 spoilers, news, gossip, and updates!
