11:25am – 12:30pm Big Brother blocks the feeds for the removal of the large table. The house guests are put on an HOH lockdown. When the feeds return – The house guests are heading out of the HOH room and start screaming as they realize the small table has been exchanged for the large one. They crowd around the kitchen table and as HOH, Austin reads the card that says congratulations on making it to final 8. As a special reward everyone can enjoy dinning at the small table. There are no havenots this week.
12:35am HOH room – Austin and Liz head up to the HOH room. Austin tells Liz that her job is to talk to Steve and convince him we need him to go up as the pawn. That way we still leave it open to backdoor Vanessa with the worst case of sending Johnny Mac out. Steve joins them and asks if there is anything he can do. Austin says he is still fighting with what to do. Steve says one of us can go up but you can’t put two up. Liz says its really risky to put up Vanessa right now because she has a lot of information on us. Levels of loyalty Steve .. we have way more loyalty to you. Austin says I am just trying to put up the most understanding person up there. Austin says I don’t want to mess with Meg and James front door.. and break that deal. Steve says if you need to put me up as a pawn, all I ask is that you don’t put me up next to one of the 5. I don’t want to be put up next to Johnny Mac or any of us 5. Steve asks why not Vanessa and Johnny Mac? Austin says that was the other option but she will go nuts. Steve says she will go nuts no matter what. Austin says she has so many theories as to why not to trust you. Steve says if you need to put me up I don’t want you to put me up next to Johnny Mac. Austin says that’s the only thing I can do. Steve says if you have to put me up put me next to Vanessa. You see if you put me up next to Johnny Mac it means you’re closer to James and Meg. Liz says no. Austin says no, we’re closer to you than them. I just don’t want to break that deal with James. Steve says I just don’t want Johnny Mac to lose trust in you guys. If you put me and him up he will know he is the second option. I just don’t want him to go after you guys. Are you okay on losing his trust? Austin says I would hope he would believe in us. Steve says but you understand he is plan B. Austin says Johnny Mac could be a casualty. He isn’t in the 5 with us. Steve asks so you’re more okay with loosing him over James and Meg? Austin says yeah. Steve asks would you tell me if Johnny is your target? Austin says he could be. I might just put up you and Johnny Mac because it might be the safest bet to get her (Vanessa) out.
12:45pm Liz comes down from the HOH room and pulls Vanessa into the havenot room. Liz tells Vanessa about how Steve really doesn’t want to go up. Vanessa says some times you have to do it. Vanessa says Austin is going to do what you want! Liz asks what? Vanessa asks which one are you? Liz says I’m Liz. Vanessa tells her Austin is going to do what you want. You have to tell him. I totally thought you were Julia. Liz says I’m trying to tell him. Liz says you have to tell him you have his back. Vanessa says I’ve told him. I have no problem being the pawn but not in this spot. Would you be comfortable being a pawn next to Johnny? Liz says no. Liz tells Vanessa that Steve was pushing for you and him to go up together. Vanessa asks why would he do that?! That would mean he is more with Johnny Mac. Liz says I didn’t think about that. Liz says I’ve never seen this side of Steve before .. all he cares about is himself. He only won HOH once to help us. Vanessa says I don’t trust it, there’s something shady! He is going to flip it.
12:50pm – 1:20pm Johnny Mac joins them. Steve says you’re going to have to come up with a backup plan in case Vanessa wins the veto. Steve asks do you want me to promise that I won’t save Johnny Mac if I win the veto? Austin says no I want you to promise that you would save him. Steve says the only thing I can set down 100% is that only one of us 5 can go up. Steve says I don’t trust it. Austin says so I lose your trust if that happens. Steve says no. Liz says I think its an awful situation. I just talked to Vanessa and she is terrified. No one wants to go up on the block. It’s Austin’s HOH. Austin says if I put up Meg its the same as putting up James and then he will come after me. Steve says he’s coming after you any ways. Austin says maybe I just put up Vanessa and bring her up after and say I found out some lies. Steve says you realize why I don’t want to go up. I don’t trust Vanessa’s vote and we need the 3 votes. Austin says it might have to be Vanessa up front. Steve says I think that’s your best bet. Steve says do you think it would change her freaking if she went up or didn’t go up. She will still think she is the backdoor. I don’t think she will stop freaking out until Monday if she isn’t then on the block. Steve says put me up next to her. Austin says she wouldn’t see that coming. Liz says we all need to have each others backs. Austin will need our support. I am scared for him. Austin says then if I put her up it will be next to you or John. Steve says cool. As long as we have the votes. Liz asks John if we do that do you have our backs? John says yes, I have no one. Johnny leaves. Liz tells Steve not to ever doubt us. Can we 100% trust Johnny Mac. Steve says yes. Austin says I’m not going to do Steve and Vanessa. It either Johnny Mac and Vanessa or I talk to James and maybe Meg and Vanessa. Steve says I’m not telling you not to put me up. Austin says she is going to go nuts if she goes up. Steve says she is going to think she’s the back target if she doesn’t go up. Austin says if you and Johnny are up I can guarantee he won’t go home. Either way someone is getting thrown under the bus. Austin says I trust you James and Meg more than her. Steve asks Austin to promise me you won’t put him up next to Vanessa. Austin says okay. Can you tell me it won’t be me next to him (Johhny). Austin says yes. Steve leaves. Liz says Steve is so annoying. We’ve only been the 5 with Johnny for a week. Liz asks who are you thinking? Austin says Johnny Mac and Vanessa. But my gut tells me to go with Steve. Liz says I think its best to put up Johnny Mac and Vanessa. My gut is telling me to trust Steve. If you put them (Johnny Mac & Steve) he won’t work with us further. Austin asks what do we tells Vanessa, do we tell her about the lies we found out? Liz says the best case scenario would be Steve and Johnny Mac. I think its stupid we made a 5 person deal with him and Johnny Mac. I trust brass tacks more. Austin says Johnny Mac is going up .. its either Steve or Vanessa. I told Steve it wouldn’t be him so Vanessa has to go up. Liz says if she wins the veto we are f**ked again. Austin says I am putting Vanessa up .. you will just have to talk to her for hours. Liz says she will know you trust Steve over her. Liz asks so do we tell her now? Austin says we probably should.
1:25pm – 1:40pm Julia joins Austin and Liz. Julia says this is getting disastrous. Austin says I am going to have to put up Vanessa and Johnny Mac… which makes sense why Steve doesn’t want to go up next to Johnny Mac because we’ve been poisoning him about Vanessa. So no wonder he can’t trust her. Austin says either Vanessa or Johnny Mac are going home this week. Austin says Steve will hold a grudge and he is a high candidate to win the days HOH. Julia says I don’t think Vanessa would go after us. I saw Steve and Johnny talking at 4am. Austin says yeah because they’re working together. Julia asks it doesn’t concern you Steve and Johnny’s loyalty together? Austin says yeah it does. Liz says Steve doesn’t want to be on the block with him because the veto isn’t used one of them goes home. Julia says it would be so much easier if we didn’t have a deal with Meg and James. It would be easier to just put them up and worst case Meg goes. She isn’t going to come back. Its a game. Julia says we need to win next week. I want to win and I’ll get blood on my hands to get James out. Austin says I’ll put Vanessa up and talk to her after and tell her she lied to us last night. Austin says you guys need to be up here when I confront her. Julia says I will, I want to see her squirm. Austin says after we tell her that Johnny Mac is the target and she just need to win the veto. Austin says and you two need to back me up on this and not be quiet. Liz asks what do we tell Vanessa. Austin says that Steve won’t play ball and that we lose trust with him if we put him up. We save telling her about the lie until later.
1:40pm – 1:50pm Vanessa joins them. Austin tells her that Steve will not play ball. We lose trust with him if I put up Johnny Mac and Him. Vanessa says then put him up and send him (Steve) home. Keep Johnny Mac who is at least f**king loyal. If someone is going to f**king threaten you like that, that’s not how you play with a f**king team. I am sorry its just not. Worst case if I go home. That leaves 2 other pairs in the house. Johnny mac and Steve and Meg and James. Which is bad for you. if someone like Becky comes back they can link up. I have no link to any one, why would you risk me. He is a sh*tty alliance member. Steve’s worst case scenario is him against Johnny Mac which means he doesn’t trust me and that means you can trust his vote. If you put me up next to Johnny Mac I go home. I am willing to be a pawn but not in this spot. Austin says so do I call him back up and tell him he has to go up with Johnny Mac? Vanessa says I don’t want to tell you what to do! I am a number for you. Austin says Steve only wants to go up next to you. Vanessa says do you know why.. because he can trust that Johnny Mac will vote for him. Then all he has to do is tell James and Meg that we were all in an alliance and then he has their votes. Liz says Austin is worried about losing trust with Steve. Austin asks so do we pull Steve back up and hash all this out. Vanessa says we already tried that. I am not connected to anyone else in the house. Steve is with Johnny Mac.. he can flip it. He can work with them. Austin asks to talk to Vanessa alone. Julia and Liz leave. Austin asks Vanessa did you know that James was the thrower with Liz? Vanessa says yes. But I was keeping my word. Austin says they’re all gone. Vanessa says James is still here. Austin says James was the one that told me. Vanessa says I was keeping my word with him. My word is good. If I thought it meant anything I would have told you. I don’t think he actually threw it. Austin says its been burning in me. I just don’t like that you lied to me. Austin says I am not asking you right now because I want to target you.. I just wanted to clear this up to move forward. Vanessa says in that moment when I was going to put you up I was heavily heavily pressured from them. Vanessa says I have your back 1000%. Austin says what about the 8 person thing. Shelli told me that right after you ran down and told her and Johnny walked in on it. Vanessa says I DID NOT TELL HER!! WHAT?! I SWEAR TO GOD I NEVER EVER EVER TOLD HER. The only person I told was Steve .. and only told him to protect us. Austin says Steve is saying he never did any of this.. why are you willing to sacrifice me over her. Vanessa says if you want to put me up because of that… Austin says I don’t want to put you up. I don’t want you to go. Do we pull Steve back up here .. what do we tell him so that we don’t lose him? Vanessa says he is connected to another person. I am not. Austin says maybe its best we bring Steve back up here and we clear all this up. Vanessa says I never told you because I didn’t think it mattered and I didn’t think you knew. I would have told you.
