Big Brother 17 Spoilers Week 3 Nomination BoB Results

Vanessa and Austin won the HoH competition at the end of Friday’s Big Brother 17 episode. Ever since, the two have been plotting and planning together as a team.

On Friday, they announced their respective nominations at the nominations ceremony. When Da’Vonne said prior to being evicted from the Big Brother house, that Becky would be a pawn once again this week, she was absolutely correct. Austin nominated Meg and Jason, while Vanessa put up John and James.

However, the REAL agreed upon target for BOTH Vanessa and Austin is Jeff. The plan, is to backdoor him. And if that fails, James is the backup. They’re telling the rest of the house that Steve is Austin’s target and Audrey is Vanessa’s. Both agreed that it would be “stupid” to take Audrey out this week.  As long as she is the #1 target, they are not. Audrey is so universally mistrusted that, at this point, she’s not dangerous. Also, I think there’s some truth to what Day said about the others being afraid to take out the the transgender houseguest with the “inspiring” story.

They’ve told Audrey she’s not really the target, and to just lay low this week. We’ll see if she can keep from meddling, but I doubt she’ll be able to stop herself from stirring things up. Steve is also aware he’s a fake target A new alliance was born, called “Freaks and Geeks” that’s made up of Vanessa, Austin, Steve, Liz and Julia.

Austin and Jeff have not hit it off from the start. The idea is to break apart the other side of the house, which includes Meg, James, Jason and  Jeff–whom they consider the most dangerous. He’s also really gross, often crossing a sexual harassment line with the women in the house.

It’s deja vu all over again this week, as John agreed, once again, to throw the Battle of the Block competition, allowing Vanessa to stay in power. The thinking is, it would be better for Vanessa to stay in power so that Austin, a strong competitor, could compete next week. Austin plans to play dumb about all of Vanessa’s moves. The two are clearly aligning themselves with Shelli and Clay, whom they believe to be very strong competitors. Eh. I don’t think Shelli and Clay are as smart as they think they are. But Austin and Vanessa? They could wind up being the final two. WITH AUDREY AS THEIR PAWN. Heh.

Liz is back in the house, having switched places with her twin last night. Julia came out to both Austin and Vanessa, with Liz’s OK, and are working with them. Weirdly Vanessa and Austin are helping the twins stay incognito, despite nearly EVERYONE in the house knowing about the twist. It’s a very strange charade that’s going on right now. If the twins survive 5 evictions, Julia enters the house as herself.

I’ll be updating this post with BoB results, so keep checking back!

UPDATE: Meg and Jason won Battle of the Block. Austin is deposed, John and James remain on the block. Things are going as Vanessa and Austin planned.

UPDATE: Vanessa is paranoid. She’s afraid that backdooring Jeff will leave too much blood on her hands. She was begging Clay, Austin and Steve to keep the nominations the same if they win POV, with the goal of evicting James (whom she personally does not like). The group agreed to support whatever decision she makes, but Clay, Shelli and Austin REALLY want Jeff out. It will be interesting to see how the PoV competition shakes out.

  1. This is tiring … plotting every week how they are going to kick somebody out of the house. American Big Brother is really far removed from the real Big Brother. I much prefer when the housemates aren’t allowed to discuss nominations and each gets to nominate two other housemates (usually in the diary room, so the nominated housemates don’t even know who nominated them). Then the housemates with the most nominations get put up for eviction and the public kicks one or more housemates out of the house.

    I’m surprised that Big Brother in America developed into this.

  2. One of the funniest moments last night was when Austin got his HOH music ipod. Apparently, as a joke, he had put down Clay Aiken and that’s what he got!

  3. The first season of BB in the U.S. The public voted on who to evict. And they got rid of the controversial people right away. The winner had the biggest sob story. They had to revamp the whole show.

  4. Yeah, i kind of agree, season one was boring because it follow the original European format of being a living experiment. I think when they added HOH and POV and Big Brother Slop to the series and changed the format to be more akin to be like Survivor and The Amazing Race, viewers like it as a guilty pleasure. Plus, hot housemates. Controversial or not. The only annoyance: Julie Chen. She tells you who is evicted from the Big Brother House before reading the results. Just press the mute on that.

  5. A lot of viewers don’t like the Battle of the Block. BOB and the compulsion for most HG to vote with the house makes the show kind of a dud. But oh well, I will watch anyway.

  6. Uh, season 1 so boring! I don’t want to sit at a computer or in front of a TV and just watch people interacting in a staged environment. I can do that in real life, except it’s unstaged and unpredictable and far more interesting. If I’m going to take time away from real life to be entertained, then I want to be entertained.

  7. The idea of Battle of the Block was good and in the first few of episodes last year, it added to the suspense. The problem is that it is being misused with this constant “throwing” of the game. Instead of truly battling to save themselves and dethrone the culprit who nominated them, it has become more play acting to ensure the chosen HOH and the chosen nominees.
    Although I will say, as much as I disliked Frankie, that was great TV last summer when the whole house was against him and his “team” member sat out of the BOB and Frankie won it on his own.

  8. Millions of viewers around the world like the original concept just fine. The show is only interesting if the cast is right and the tasks are interesting.

    The idea of Big Brother is that strangers live together in the house. The housemates nominate each other, but the audience ultimate decides who stays and who goes. The housemates can hate one or two housemates and nominate them every week, but the audience can keep the hates housemates in the house.

    Also, the audience often kicks the boring housemates out and keeps the controversial ones around for a good while.

  9. I am telling you what happened back in S1. 1st HG out, the black guy who wasn’t “nice enough”. 2nd HG out, the exotic dancer (a/k/a stripper). The last girl standing was a demure beauty pageant girl and the ultimate winner was an amputee with only one leg.

    If they didn’t switch up the eviction process, the show would not have even gotten a second season.

  10. Millions of viewers in America like the version they’ve been watching for 16 of the last 17 years just fine too. That’s why it’s a summer staple.

  11. The opposite happened when they had the format in the US. The more interesting ones were eliminated first, and the format overall was a lot more boring. I also think what happened in the US is that BB and Survivor started about the same time, and Survivor was much more popular than the first year of BB, so they took some elements from Survivor into Big Brother, with the elimination of the contestants.

    If the current format that started in Season 2 didn’t work in the US it wouldn’t have lasted for all these years. It just happens to work better in the US. I think it’s the competition aspect that appeals to US viewers. Also, BB Canada uses a similar format to the US one, and it is working for them too.

  12. I agree that the audiences like to give the prize to people they think deserve it. That’s the same in all countries. It’s on the show to make sure things don’t turn into a pity party or pageant.

    I’m actually surprised that American Big Brother is still called “Big Brother” since “Big Brother” (the viewers) has no say in who stays in the house and who is evicted. It’s a completely different game now.

  13. The UK format is awful and renders the competition to a mere popularity contest. In BBUS/BBCAN the beauty is the strategy/backstabbing/deal-making. Sometimes the bad guys win, and that makes it fun to watch because of its unpredictability.

    Sometimes the original is not always the best, but obviously this is just an opinion.

  14. Big Brother was never the viewers. Big Brother is the disembodied voice that tells the HGs what to do.

  15. I think the problem with the Battle of the Block is when both HOH are in the same alliance, that’s why they misuse and have one side throw the competition. That happened quite a bit last year, and so far this year. It’s because the alliances are so big, especially last year.

  16. That’s why I don’t think the first season worked as well, it ended up being who was liked the most. There was no real gameplay. There were some competitions, like luxury competitions, and they had to perform some kind of challenges for food, but I think it was more as a group, they had a budget for food, and had to make lists every week for what they wanted within the budget, and the challenges would give them a bigger food budget for the week. One of the activities was raising chickens, and they also had a garden, which helped them with their food budget. I think there were some objections to the chickens being used as food from viewers,so they could only use the eggs. I did watch it and liked it, but from the second season on, the game play was much more interesting.

    And I agree, Big Brother is the voice, and producers of the show.

  17. Why does this house wait to make a big move and put someone up who is constantly causing trouble and is so hated in the house like Audrey? They need to either back door this week or get rid of her next week.
