Saying that the final three with Vanessa and John is a good idea.
Steve would take Johnnymac to the end not Vanessa.
Steve says taking out Meg might be better than James.

This is her chance to redeem herself with fans. We want to see strategic moves. Not playing a fucking game for Austin and his THOTS. Go Vanessa and you better not disappoint.


Agreed….she needs to take one of the twins out.

Modesty Blaise

Not just a twin – it has to be Liz. Julia can’t win crap, even her own sister is busting her about it. If Liz goes, Austin will be pissed, but he’ll lose his focus because she’s not there. So hopefully he loses. The only real competition left is James and JMac, with Vanessa unable to play for HOH next week. Put Vanessa and Steve/Austin up, and bye Vanessa. Then it’s every man for himself. There’s flaws in this thinking, I’m sure, but I’m half-bombed at this point after watching tonight’s borefest.


Austin’s not thinking with the right head anyway. If Liz goes to jury, he might just give up and take off running out the door after her.

Liz needs to go

Im glad Vanessa is trying to team up with Steve and Johnny. It’s the only possible group left in the house. John and Vanessa are both good at endurance comps, Vanessa and Steve are both good at mental comps. But Vanessa really should go after Liz this week. Liz is the strongest competitor of the Austwins alliance. And she’s the link between Austin and Julia. While they are a strong 3, they’re really made up of two couples: Liz and Julia, and Liz and Austin. If Liz goes, they could pull Julia in and get rid of eith Austin or James at double eviction.


Liz should be the most feared – she’s not necessarily the best. She has two people that will NEVER turn against her. That’s dangerous.

the coreys

This happens every year. The evicted house guest is the one that comes back and bam, we have to do the same week all over again.

Unless vanessa goes rogue and puts up Austin and Liz I’ll be skipping this week.


Mhmm all the Vanessa haters will now change their tune in 3,2,1…


only if she actually comes through, do you think she will ?


I think she absolutely wants to work with them. She’s always known Austin and/or the twins would not take her to the final.

Now she has found out they have basically formed alliances to target her, she is not going to trust them again. I think she trust the twins more than Austin. But she knows they are not a final 2 option.

I’m not sure that she will put them up directly this week. I’m hoping James tells her about their alliance and her not REALLY being a part of brass tacks. She asked meg that directly today. She was basically like give me a reason to use the veto but meg wouldn’t. Hopefully she will now. That will be her excuse.

Nothing Personal

Meg hasn’t made any good decisions so far but you’re expecting her to do this right?
Jmac might be right, get rid of Meg, pull James into the alliance with Jmac, Steve and Vanessa to get rid of the twins and Austin. Or, since it’s double elimination do the twins this week.


She will go after the Goblins. None of these people can count past 3.


Funny!!!! 🙂


If she gets out Liz or Austin, I sure will. It’s part of why I love BB… when it’s good, my opinion is always changing. Van is our only hope right now for the twins/Austin not to run it til the end.


Actually, the issue I think the viewers have with Vanessa, is not who she goes after, its her hypocritical play “TO” the viewers. Be a hypocrite all you want to the people you play against. But all this ” catch you in a lie “, “100% honest “, is something that at the start of the season, she was preaching to the viewers. Unfortunately, that is pathological. She is doing exactly what she is claiming others is doing. If she had just once, in a DR, or on a camera said it was her gameplay, I think people would like her. The big players in the past, would lie to you, own it in the DR, and not cry and whine if you didn’t get a hug.

She could throw up Austin and Liz, and that would be great from a viewer drama standpoint, but then, she would pass that move off to the viewer as catching them in a lie, or redeeming a ticket on not being honest with her. Something to justify her own delusion. Treating your competition that way, is different than telling the viewer.

A person can be bat-poop crazy with how they handle other HG’s for all I care, but to then lie or not own up to it in the DR or camera’s makes her look bad IMHO. She needs to just own what she does. She’s a bully, whiny, liar that is self reinforced with the idea she isn’t doing those things herself.


I “picked” Vanessa early on, and I’m sticking with that pick no matter what! lol

Vanessa has some very good qualities as far as the game goes, and a couple I don’t love. The crying really gets on my nerves, I think sometimes its strategy and sometimes the game is getting to her.

I’m also not sure why she always needs a “reason” to do things such as catch someone in a lie. Is she attempting to keep her cards close to her so others don’t see her moves as games moves? I’m not sure, but in her mind she thinks she has to justify making moves.

On the other hand, she’s extremely smart and strategic. She’s also proven to be good at comps. So for me, that’s a good real rounded player. Her social game could be better at times. I personally prefer that type of player over say a Derrick who is just really strong at social.


Big Brother has some similarities to poker.
You must be able to read your opponent.
Van is a very successful poker (she’s won millions) and she is very good at reading people when they are lying. The best way to see a persons “tells” when they are lying is to put them on the spot and see how they react when they are not expecting it.
Next and almost equally as important. You must create a persona that you want your opponent to see you as. While you as a viewer may see her as a hypocrite, she is just creating that persona of “I can’t stand lairs”. So if she catches someone lying she can then say “I can’t trust you and you have to go”. And most importantly IF she were to make it to the end, she can list a reason why she evicted or helped evict each jury member.
You can see that in comments from some of the jury members they have said she is playing an excellent game and they realized (to late) that she is the best in the house (at this point).

Cindy Withanesse

Nope. Still hate her like before.


Aww….oh well! Lol


I soooooo hope Vanessa is serious about teaming up with Steve and Johnny Mac. It would be magical for them to be the ones that break up the Austwins!


Problem is, Vanessa won’t want any blood on her hands so she’ll make the alliance this week but probably take out Meg during her HOH and hope Steve or Johnny Mac win next week to take one of the Austwins out. It would be awesome if she started it this week. I hope double eviction is a good one. A twin followed by Austin.


No… someone else, then Liz.

I want to see Austin in the house for a week without Liz. I don’t want him to go to jury the same night as her.


Take out Meg??!! Take out Meg!!?? What is Steve talking about??? Please go after Liz.


Both Steve & JMAC want to take out Meg….What the *** she is useless. A comment was made about her & James being a strong duo….Really!? My feeling is she has brought down James game! That would be the only reason I would be OK with her leaving.


Take out Meg, take James. Fuck ya. I get get behind that, as long as the austwins are out. Meg is useless.


And there it is folks….she was down and out, back against the wall and like any true fighter, she made her way out of the corner to take charge. Vanessa has to be one of the smartest players I have seen in Big Brother. Now if she can just stop crying…lol


LOL. She has gotten a lot of help from Austin the pussy and the twins without brains who follow whoever takes charge. She is definitely smarter than the rest of these fools, but I don’t think she is as good as most of the BB greats.


austin . stfu
vanessa . target austwins


Dawg or Simon…….any predictions??? Or BB Fans any ideas? We should have a poll Vegas style.

Jersey Cat

Vanessa do the smart thing and put up the ugly twins and the caveman that aligns with them. Stay with Johnny Mac and Steve



Van is #1

I hope Van take out Austin or Liz this week that would give John, Steve and her a great way to get to final 3, if she goes after james or meg than i don’t know she might mess up, she needs to turn on liz and austin now


OMG…. Watch Vanessa play both sides and put James/Meg on the block ….

….She can’t play in the next hoh, so keep john and steve is great for her game because they will go after Austin/twins…..Austin/twins will go after john and steve ….Meg will be the pawn week after week…..

James needs to win the VETO to screw Vanessa over by making her pick a side.


I will only dislike Vanessa if she gets rid of austin. She can go after any and all of the rest. (Except Steve)


Why Milo? If Vanessa had not won POV, Austin would have backdoored her in a heartbeat!! Put Austin and Liz up. It’s time they see what’s it’s like and be taken down a few notches. Better for V to take her shot at them now rather than later.


My prediction…nominate Austin and Liz. If one wins Julia take a seat….by Liz or Austin. HUGE HUGE MOVE and the only chance to guarantee breaking up the trio. Camp over Lol lol lol oh my gawwwwwwwd juuuuunujuuuuu and Lizzzzzzzzzzzzerd


Don’t trust her boys! She’s just playing you!


You’ve got that right. Before telling Steve she wants to work with him & JMAC, she told Austin him and the twins were safe this week!


Obviously. She’s not going to put them up this week that would reveal her game. She will recruit someone else to do that.


OMG!! Why won’t these dummies consider busting up the Austwits?!!! It is a numbers game. Granted Meg can’t win anything but she is a vote not to mention easy to get out after Liz/Austin/James. I know this will all flip flop in 15 minutes.


In Poker, you go after the short stack first. That’s Meg and James. Van will not go after ALJ. She is a grinder.


Its really her only chance to win.


This might be an interesting twist.

Operation bye bye

What a waste!!! BB way to screw up the season with that non sense… jmac meg really???? Really u cant be this stupid… Another week of groundhogs day… take out a big target vanessa or just self evict… sooo irritated with this season.


Omg!!!! I freaking love my JohnnyMAC!!!! How freaking bittersweet!!! BB almost lost a few viewers had this bs continued!! Of course now Van finally realized she needs Johnny its about time for a good power shift!!! Now she needs to target the nasty twits and Austink!!!! #TeamJohnnyMAC #RockStarDentist


The only people vanessa is going to target is james/meg…This game is so 1 sided and boring!!! almost everyone is protecting the Asstwits, and for what a jury vote??? you’re never going to get to the finals if you don’t get these heavy targets anyways..!!!

Chill this Town

well, I feel like at this point one sort of has to root for Vanessa. I really respect her hustle, but its not even about that. its that I really don’t want an AusTwins win on the books, and Vanessa is really the only legitimate shot here. Meg is the obvious “take to final 2” candidate. James is going to get picked off, MAC is a sitting duck….Steve has played a very interesting game but far too scared in the process.

We NEED Vanessa to do her thing and flip this on the Twins and Austin, she is the only one who playing the odds through her head more than anything else, understands you can’t leave 3 freaking votes in the game past this week….

that said…I am glad MAC is back on CBS, Ill take his DR’s over the Austwins/Meg anyday.

April in Paris

For those of you mad at j-Mac for targeting meg, isn’t it so James will be alone and have to work with JM-a good choice over the 3 headed monster?

Chill this Town

absolutely, but that is if you actually believe Meg would be voted out, lets break it down…

Steve V Meg: Steve goes home
MAC V Meg: MAC goes home
Austin V Meg: Austin goes home
James V Meg: James goes home
a Twin V Meg: a Twin goes home

there is no scenario I can see where Meg is going to get voted out BEFORE we(hopefully this never happens) get to where the Austwins have a majority, even then I question if they will just keep her until #5

I don’t think its going out on a limb to say that Meg outside of a major twist is guaranteed a spot in the final 5


Meg is guaranteed at least $50,000. Anybody will take her final 2. If she gets taken out, that frees up 2nd place.


A day late and a dollar short, Vanessa.


If she doesn’t put up austin and liz then she deserves to be evicted next week


Well if Vanessa tries to get Austin and Liz out and leaves James alone this week I’ll be happy. Hopefully James wins the second HoH and takes out Vanessa. My 90 year old Mom wants me to say she thinks the house guest are a bunch of pu$$ys. She is pi$$ed. She is also going to kill me for actually posting it. Haha

Chill this Town

considering how the Twins were talking about Becky’s injury, and sending MAC home….I am loving their tears right now

and Austin…he has to be the most insecure delusional HG in BB that I can remember. Can you believe that the Kamikaze himself J-MAC is after Austin? Its not like Austin nominated him, asked for the veto to not be used, and sent him out the door. ohhhh…wait…

Love you JMac!

Austin would make a perfect delusional couple with Danielle in BB14 or Jessie in BB15 😛

Love you JMac!

Rock on!

And go Vanessa! Time to take a shot at the threesome!


Vanessa better not jack this up… I still don’t want her to win but if she don’t go after the twins and Austin she will confirm that she is a total moron …


I am soooo sick of the johnnymac worship. What has he done? He started playing a day ago. He’s already going to win Americas favorite. I’m completely flabbergasted.???????


He has IT. The thing that makes people crazy in love at first sight. He could be a mass murderer and people would still love him.

Vanessa land

How much you wanna bet Vanessaland puts up james/meg up for eviction???? does anyone realize you have to go after the assstwits????/ She’s already 4th on that totem pole, maybe even 5th w/ Steve…..why not try to slow down your odds??? get 1 out now!! Unless James wins the pov he’s a goner!


I hate how Van bullies Steve. It is drives me nuts how the water works start when mention she should go up. She has cried since day one. This may be a week Van doesn’t cry.


I hate the way she bullies him . I’m sorry but its disgusting behavior in anyone , but in an adult , its inexcusable!!


I hate that Steve left his balls at home with his mom for safe keeping.

Operation bye bye

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyy best news i heard all night that the jurors took the head bands sooo no slimg band….hahaha… no one wants to watch you play sling bands for 2 hrs on after dark!

Big sexy 40

Shelli was enjoying the Buffett at jury house these last few weeks, u take it

Shelli's buffet

I was going to say the same thing…by the end of this season, she could be heading for winter….LOL


She already told Austwins they are safe, She is going to put up James and Meg and then if one of them win veto that will be her chance to break up the trio, if not then James or Meg goes home. This season is getting too boring. I can’t stand Vanessa always wanting to make ascene to put someone up, she always has to try to back someone in a corner to justify her moves. Will never like her


Vanessa needs to put up Austin and Julia. Either one wins POV then Liz goes up. Liz wins POV then she saves Julia and Austin goes to Jury. I agree this is a chance for Vanessa to redeem herself in our eyes. I hope this game will finally get interesting. Vanessa needs to allign herself with JMac, Meg, James and Steve. Although, Steve is so loyal to the Austwins because they’ve included him in their ‘cool club’ , I don’t think he can be objective. In the end I would take Meg with me to final 2. Even Zingbot would win against her. Poor girl has No game.

June Bug

I believe the goblins are going up. Really don’t understand how James and Meg think they are safe.The Austwins will be upset if Johnny Mac is not put up and start to realize that Vanessa has made an alliance with him.


The two idiots James and Meg kept Vanessa over Shelli. Now they finally see they will never get Vanessa out because everyone wants to keep her over everyone else. These two idiots will pay their price for their stupid move of keeping Vanessa. James and Meg will taste the block this week for their stupid personal move.

another name

Best strategic move for Vanessa isn’t going to get her any love on here.
Best strategic move for Vanessa is making the secret alliance with the Rockstars and keeping the Auschtwits in the game at the same time.
get rid of a goblin.
If she targets steve and John she stays at the bottom of a foursome that likes the goblins. they’re fun (mensa grade strategy there). That puts her in the 7th spot on the ladder.
If she targets austin or a twin, the remaining other two join up with the goblins. That means four people looking to get her out.
If she targets a goblin the other one can either go to the rockstars, that she’s already aligned with, or go to the austwits, that she’s already aligned with. Or lie in bed and whine that there’s no more peeps.
She’s unknowingly in hot water already because of double elimination on thursday. best to try to be in with the majority of the house, and target people that she thinks don’t trust her. Meg proved she didn’t trust Vanessa in the Vanessaversal Church of Truth interrogation when she wouldn’t own up to the brass tacks without Vanessa as an entity. James did the same (insert a monty python nobody expects a spanish inquisition comment here).
Sending meg home is foolish unless someone wants to fill the albatross spot she’s in. Sending James home is smarter. Don’t worry, he’s already won america’s favorite, the episode spent 11- 14 minutes on him. it’s a 44 minute episode without commercials.


I agree with everything except that James is America’s favorite, jmac will win the 25k for that!


As much as I want Liztin gone I think you are right. Vanessa is not at the top of anyone’s alliance, doing your way as least she has a chance of surviving next week. I say a chance because I am afraid no matter what she does this week she may go in the DE.


Vanessa now has all the ammunition she needs to rebuild a new army and go after Austinks and his twits. All is revealed after Jmac exposed them. Hi five Jmac at least you’ve done something helpful this season. Vanessa will continue to benefit bringing her further along in the game deservingly. She is the only one playing strategically. No matter what! Lie/scheme /deny/cry/question ppl/ etc ….etc. AT LEAST SHE IS PLAYING THE GAME! Haters gonna hate and Vanessa will laugh all the way to the bank with the 500k! No need to comment based on emotions. It’s all about strategy. Yes planning your next move ahead of time. Unfortunately James and Meg missed that bus!


Can Vanessa really take credit for “her game” when she believes all of the crazy things that she says? It would be one thing if she was crying & lying in the house while laughing in the DR. Instead she seems to be internalizing all the BS that she says. I don’t think she is a good player. She is just the right combination of crazy.


Then you’re not really seeing everything she is doing. Even the Great BB past players say she is playing a good game- Minus the crying and need to have excuses to take people out. lol


If Vanessa actually turns on Austin and the twits I may actually tune in to see that. If she stays with Austin and its a repeat of last week I am out. At this point I am fine with anyone winning except Austin, twits, or meg.


I’m all for Jmac, Steve and Vanessa working together, but I hope Vanessa is smart enough to go after the disgusting trio!


Long week ahead. Russonomics exam next Thursday. Get some sleep, Goblins. Summer camp is over.


The HGs gotta do something. It most get boring as hell in there. Freaking- cabin fever. They are not playing games to bug US. They are keeping themselves entertained ON down time.

production rigged it

Just one problem with Vanessa going after the Austwins they’re 3 votes in jury and if she turns on them that’s 3 votes she’s not getting plus she’s not getting Jackie’s either that makes 4 and last week Shelli was blaming her for her and Clay being out of the game. So she would be taking a huge risk if she was the one to take them out.


She’ll have Shellis and Jackies vote. Both said she is good and playing a good game. I think she would still get Austin’s vote as its a great move that she was able to stay in and then take him out.


No way. These players all see that sheis the one who is going to win and will deserve that win if no one gets her out. NOBODY will win over Vanessa in final 2.


Vanessa – I think you, me and Johnny can beat Austin and the twins in any comps

7:54pm Steve alone
Steve says taking out Meg might be better than James.


these people are stupid…. Go for the Lizard and Julia! split the Austwins


Stop with the Van better go after Austin and the twins nonsense. She is putting up Meg and James. She isn’t playing to make you happy, she will do what puts he in the best position. This way she can play the middle. Keep Austin/twins on one side and have Jmac and Steve on the other. She has no relation with the goblins and doesn’t give two shits if they are upset about going up.


RA is physical so sure meg you get a pass in comps . But mental? What’s your excuse . Forget about game play which is also non existtant . This fuckin girl can’t even figure out where to go when she gets booted from comps . I’ve watched her pull off her headband in the last 3 pitiful comp attempts and have no idea where to go sit . If u watch close she was first to vote tonight and got hung up where the fucking door was. Um there’s only 2 doors in the fuckin house, and the other one is the eviction door ! She is beyond stupid .

At the end of the day

I’ll believe it when I see it. She’ll be bucking the whole house plan to target the returnee and she told Austin he and the twins are safe. So sick of getting my hopes up over and over and over. Did love to see the Austwits freaking out. They are totally baffled by the huge audience reception Jmac got.

At the end of the day

Did Jmac actually let Vanessa win HOH?


Production did


Vanessa does not want a bitter jury.


If the Austwins find out about Vanessa is aligned with JohnMac, they will be pissed off at her more because they will feel betrayed by Vanessa. Let Vanessa do her work, John just needs to relax and wins veto this week. The Austwins will keep James so that James will come after Vanessa. So let Vanessa do her HOH. As long as John is safe I do not care about anything else.

Hypocrisy Exposer

3 weeks ago half of the people in the comments were talking about hating Vanessa because she lies and backstabs and isn’t loyal, and whatever else Becky told them to think, and now those same people are hoping and praying she lies, backstabs, isn’t loyal, and does all of the things Becky said she did. Can someone say hypocritical phonies?
