Ugh Vanessa... Barf

I would love for her to leave next…

Pot Kettle Black

She is so umm umm umm annoying! Bye!


Why does J-mac continue to harp on the “fight” and blame Vanessa. It was all Clay’s doing.


JohhnyMac was mad that Clay was going home and Vanessa was having a fight with him and Clay

Ian's lament

My winner will be the one who takes out Liz cause she is the glue that keeps that alliance together. Take her out and everyone will scramble and Austin and Julia might actually think for themselves. Vanessa needs Steve and Jmac cause she finally sees that she’s the odd one out of that 4some.


Clay created the confusion, but Vanessa went full tilt with it. Her confrontational and demanding nature put Jmacs game at risk. He was forced to either lie publically or admit he was after her. Given Vanessa’s intensity, there’s every reason for him to believe that Vanessa will always doubt him from that moment on. I wonder how many people here would NOT Blane Vanessa for that inc


I’m sorry, but Jmack brought that on himself. What did he expect? He JUST told her “no” a few minutes earlier when they were in private, then after Clay pushes in front of everyone, he says “YES”. I would’ve reacted the same way. Jmack needs to grow a pair. And Clay is the reason for the entire thing. Front to back, and yet you guys AND Jmack blame Vanessa. How stupid. Plus its time for him to get over it. You got caught lying for your man crush, get over it already. The entire thing is stupid.


Whats funny to me about the whole fight between Van and Jmac, is multiple people said multiple times that Van needed to get over it because it was irrelevant. She didn’t drop it so Jmac obliged and told her his side/how he felt and now suddenly Jmac is the one that needs to drop it because it doesn’t matter anymore.




The big difference is Johnny is after Vanessa because of it. And she’s voting to keep him. So who has dropped it and who really hasn’t?


I’d say no one considering the amount of chats HG’s other than Jmac or Van bring it up every day.

Sneaky Stevie

I hope Jmac catches on to what Steve is doing, he is trying to hard for Jmac to wanna work with Vanessa. Keep pushing Steve and you will be Jmack next target

Steve's Making Step-Mommy Mad

Vanessa’s caught onto Steve’s reluctance to share info and he called her out for digging. He does the unthinkable, getting in a standoff and walking away from her. Omg! Van gives the cameras a knowing nasty look. Steve’s going to be her next target, he knows too much. She can deduce he’s been talking about targeting her with JMac. Don’t get her on your bad side, now that you kept her there. She doesn’t like disloyal, lying, rats. Watch out!


OHHH NOOOO. He will be Jmack’s target??!! Whatever will he do?? Shit, he may as well self evict at that point. lol


That was Austin hair….???????? and his sweat. What a pig…????

Seasoned with Poor Hygiene

Austins hair and sweat in every dish compliments Liz juices on his hands he refuses to wash after banging on her in HOH. No lie he covers his hard on- feeds zoom in on how he either never washes or never uses soap. Eeeeeewwwwuhh! Gaaaagguhh!


Why would JMac reveal his intentions to Steve, he’s gonna run and tell Van. I would not surprised if he goes and Becky stays.
Come Thursday whichever one is left, and they win HOH:
Psychological: Liz and Julia on the block if one wins POV then Van goes up at replacement nominee, off to jury for Van. However, if Van wins POV. And takes down julia and the HOH would put up Austin.
Gamelogical: and yes I made this term up.
Becky/JMac: Liz and Austin up as pawns, anyone but van win POV they use it, and backdoor Vanessa.
If Van win POV then leave noms the same and send Liz to jury. Austin and Julia would be in disarray and unable to cope.

Member of the Ant Farm

Actually, I think Steve is much smarter than you think he is. He is one of the few that has kept certain information to himself. He knows that Austin and the twins are starting to turn on Vanessa and he hasn’t tried to warn her. Maybe out of fear of her going ape shit and blowing up his game in the process. Probably because if things go in that direction, he can jump off of that sinking ship. However, if Vanessa survives another week or 2 and gets an HOH, he can then use that info to target Austin and the twins. I can really see Steve wnning this game, but the odds are strongly against him.

Steve needs to GO!

Absolutely no social skills- always so inappropriate and mean! Can’t wait to see you walk out that door.


JMAC has figured out everything else Vanessa is doing, so why can’t he figure out Steve is in her pocket? I wish he would drop Steve or feed him wrong info to see what he does with it.


He’s actually almost completely wrong about Vanessa. He thinks she hates him and is coming after him and she actually wants to align with him. For her to hate/be scared of him he would actually have to be playing the game, instead of being a mopey pawn-for-hire.


She doesn’t dislike anyone who panders to her.


Exactly!! I was hoping the same thing. JMac has got know Steve can’t be trusted. It’s written all over his face he’s a snake.

the coreys

Have a 3 so openly together like the twins and austin ever got this far before.

Really silly to allow. The week austin and liz are on the block will likely be the best week.


Was it just me.. or did it lookalike Steve was Having a “Theres Something about Mary” situation on his cheek… that total looked like some Love Juice going on…. Oh well… enough Potty Talk.

For most people in the house putting up the twins is their best move… they are the last power group. If PoV is played use it on Julia so Austin and Liz are up…. unlike Brendon… of Brenchal…. Austin will in NO way do the chivalrous act… He will do the fake “I can’t campaign against Liz..” routine…. then campaign. (That seems to be how everybody campaigns this Season.)…. “I could never campaign against ________, I just think some of the things _______ said about you is messed up.” or “I could never campaign against _______ all these people are willing to go on the block as a pawn sp they can float to the end with NO blood on their hands… it sucks you know.” …. So if Austin campaigns against Liz… let them know… then evict Liz so it makes Julia feel that Liz put her in the jury. If Liz campaigns hard…. evict Liz and claim that Austin made some good points against working with the twins.
I know that is messed up… You also have to make sure when you nominate them do this speech “I know the plan was to nominate Vanessa and Johnny Mac so we could evict Vanessa… but I realized we are mad at Vanessa for things she did to protect Austin and the twins and listening to them really push to get Vanessa on the block but they were too afraid to do it… made me think if they are doing this to someone that has worked her butt off to keep them safe… what would they do to me. I just do not feel they are loyal and right now just too much a threat.

Then evict Liz blame it all on Vanessa… split that group up… let Vanessa know everything they said that made her problems with the goblins and JMac worst and how they campaigned to keep Shelli until the Goblins came to them and said that they are voting to keep Vanessa… and Steve knew all of it so we just assumed you did too…. blow up all their games and shatter that alliance. Best way to make it to the top…. will it happen… NO, most of their brain cells are sapped so they are operating on basic survival.

Min O'Pause

Re: Steve’s cheek substance. Perhaps he was being a loyal minion and squeezing Vanasty’s chin volcanoes and got in the line of fire?


First time I will ever agree with the Twins & Austin, I see why the avoid Vanessa. Vanessa can never stop talking about Game, Game, Game, she cannot break away and just have a fun time without plotting and talking Game, she is annoying as hell.

Also, what does she mean people will be offended if JMac does not approach people and ask for their vote ? What she really means is, she will be upset, she wants JMac to approach her, but from what I have read on this site, Julia, Austin, Steve and I think Meg have already promised him their vote.

There is no need to approach Vanessa’s needy Ass !! She just wants him to have to ask her for help, she is such an annoying Person, I want her ass out of the house so bad. CBS needs to stop giving Vanessa such a good edit, people on this site and people who have the live feeds see what a pain in the ass Vanessa is.

Hoh aka soft porn room

Yucks at 7plus pm.. Austin’s hand was obviously all over liz’s chest (distinctly via their conversation.)

And for several minits his hand was seemingly stroking some of her lower body parts :: double yucks!!!!! ::

They are getting bolder by the day, not even waiting for the lights to be turned off.


I think JMac is on too Steve. Everyone knows Steve is Van’s little bitch. Steve thinks he is so much smarter then everyone else when he’s actually a joke and everyone in that house knows he’s a rat. Hopefully, Austin and Steve will go on the block next week. No Van fan but she is in it to win it. She’s a pro and it’s about the thrill of the win. She’s just so nasty and hateful. Austin and Steve are two cowards hiding behind her. The twins are not worth a comment, James has no help because the person tied to him (Meg) is pathetic and JMac played dumb guy too damn long, now he might be screwed. There’s no one to hope win at this point.
Eeenie meenie minie mo!


I think you’re giving jmack too much credit. If he’s onto Steve he’s been giving him quite a bit of ammunition. And if he’s onto him and giving him all this info, then he’s even more clueless than I thought.

The Ninety Percent

Seeing Liz and Austin kiss and snuggle makes me barf a little. He just looks like he smells and I bet she closes her legs as much as she shuts her mouth. I can’t stand them. This week has been the worst.

The other Ten Percent

Last night she was all over him, kissing and spreading her legs over him, she was very much enjoying what looked like his hand down the front of her shorts!


Oh no not the first Baby conceived on big brother? EWWWWW


why is jmac such a fan favorite? “look at me I’m a wacky dentist” is lame and totally played out.. lately he brings no entertainment value whatsoever and always seems isolated and bored the guy never appears to be having any fun.. he has absolutely zero strategy unless going down as an all time bb floater is his agenda.. if by some miracle he’s lucky enough to get to the end what could he possibly say to win jury votes “umm i know I’m a boring dentist and all but i was so wacky in the DR”.. seriously i don’t get it.. Standing by my final 3 austin james meg..


I agree about Jmac but two of your final three are total floaters also.


If Johnny turns it on and starts playing comps to win this week he can build a resume to win by taking out Vanessa first. If he lays back one more week he’s done for. Vanessa will get wind of his plan to evict her and get him. Austin will tell her in order to save himself.
I hope Becky will come back in and target the twins and Austin. If she does, she will have the resume to win. No matter who she is up against.
I don’t have a favorite this season….I think they are all nasty in their own way but if Becky can get back in and get to final two she will deserve the win in my opinion.


As a game move to make Liz feel indebted to Austin it doesn’t bother me that he takes credit for things others did. Something still annoys me about him professing that it was all him that kept Liz safe after week 2. Austin was the last person in the alliance to be told days later that Liz was a twin. Keeping the twins safe was a group effort for a numbers advantage. Liz says she started to like Austin when he played hard to get. Austin started playing hard to get after Vanessa told him to play hard to get, and yet Vanessa has never done anything but talk game. Without Vanessa passing on counsel to Austin, Liz would be so bored and annoyed with Austin that she’d be plotting his downfall instead of worrying about Vanessa. But it was all his master plan.
His bursts of ego are annoying. Just evict him already.


James could have his own show.

America's Favorite

At this point who would you choose?

I think Jackie has a good chance. She handled herself with dignity and was sent packing for no reason. If she doesn’t come back (or even if she does) I think she has a very good shot.


Jackie who?


James IMO he made some big moves and try’s to do fun stuff in the house.
The only thing is he’s very crude that could hurt his chance.


He’s a fave bc he’s uniquely funny while also being a down to earth nice guy. If you’re not into that, fine. No reason to be so vehement about it. Haters gonna hate. It’s not like he did something awful. Why care that people like him? He’s also pretty cute. And his “what do you want?” reply to Julie during live eviction was priceless. He’s naturally endearing and seems very sweet.


none of that is true.

JMac all the way

JMac is still a fav. because there’s not much of a cast to route for
Vanessa- she’s heavily medicated which makes her even more Looney than she most definitely is
Austin – there are no words, I hope when he watch’s the season he has the brains to be embarrassed
Liz -to immature and a voice I have to muteeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee
Julia – not sure she knows where she is and again that dame voice is just to much
James – he knows the game and can compete but, his vulgar creepy side is not endearing
Meg- funny girl but, no game at all
Becky – started playing to late in the game, she had potential but, her so called team screwed her over, no coming back
Steve – just can’t warm up to this kid, I think he needs to go home to mommy

JMac for the win!


Good Lord. I dont see why some of you people even watch Big Brother. You just simply ROOT for the underdogs, like Donny fans.


was never a Donnie fan I ROOT for who plays the game, JMac laid low until he had to play, he can win and protect himself not like the rest of them that are constantly looking for the next so called “deal” to protect them….
you must be a Vanessa fan…good luck with that


Actually at this point I don’t have a favorite. Basically the only thing I’m sure of is the people I don’t like. Although I do tend to like the houseguest that actually play the game and not view this as a summer vacation. If I wanted that, I would watch something like the real world (if that show is even still on).

Since I prefer actual players, Johnny is one of my least favorites. Well him and Austin. I don’t consider someone throwing comps and/or winning veto comps that are thrown, a player. Not a single HOH, no true alliance, playing too personal. Not to mention the whole crying tears because Shelli and Clay were on the block was a little too over the top for me. Jmack is definitely at the bottom of the list along with meg, and Austin for me.


I feel the same I’m not a fan of the people left.
I think Jmac is one of those people that has a look people like. He could be the biggest mass murder alive and people would still love him. He’s very lucky.


This is why were going to have a twin win it or Vanessa cause everybody said they want to backdoor Vanessa instead of just putting her up outright. John said he going to put up James & Meg and if one of them win the POV then he’ll backdoor Vanessa if not just get rid of James. to show he loyal to Austwins. James said the same thing about John & Steve to Austin.Meg said to James I think its bout time we take a shot at Austwins James said know lets keep working with them to Final 5. Vanessa already put it in Steve ear they need to take out James this coming week then Johnny mac then they are golden. all in all these house guest are stupid for wanting to go to the final 5 with Austwins instead of breaking them up now.


WHY?!?!? can’t SOMEone with a viable shot at winning HOH just have the sense (Meg and Becky seem to be the only ones thinking it out loud but let’s face it…. 1’s going, the other doesn’t win) to put up 2 of those 3- A,L,J?!?! Voice it as a ‘strategical’ move (because it IS!) so they can’t be too upset and ‘hold it against them’ in Jury, and be vocal about no matter who wins POV, the left over of the 3 will be replacement??? It would decimate them as a group having to campaign against each other…. Is common sense really that hard to come by when you’re living in the fishbowl….?


Hey Johny get a clue Come back to the other side!!!

Cassandra Hilson

Johnny Mac needs to know that Zankie might backdoor him because they are getting jealous of his delicious bubble butt. I wonder if Julie is going to wear a ponytail on thursday for the live triple conviction. Also I think Meg had really bad diarrhea after this cooking competition, she was in the toilet room for almost 45 minutes.
