On August 10, 2015, the “Big Brother” 17 Power of Veto (POV) ceremony took place with dramatic consequences. Crying and accusations ensued following the event due to actions that took place as the ceremony went down.
According to Joker’s Updates live feed spoilers, Steve, who was nominated for eviction, won the POV and used it to save himself. Thus, Becky, the current Head of Household (HOH), was forced to select a replacement nominee to sit on the chopping block next to Shelli, the other nominated cast mate. There was already a plan in place, so Becky stuck to the premeditated backdoor scheme and chose Vanessa to replace Steve.
Shortly thereafter, on live feeds, Vanessa could be seen getting more and more upset about the turn of events. Vanessa decided to head to the backyard where Becky sat, as she wanted to confront her. At first Vanessa was calm, asking Becky why she had chosen to blindside her. Becky, determined not to get into a shouting match, simply said she felt forced to say she agreed with a deal on one occasion when Vanessa was HOH and felt Vanessa had pointed her finger at her and forced the issue. Becky then stood up and walked away as Vanessa, not at all satisfied with what Becky had said, pleaded for an explanation, saying she was the one on the block.
Vanessa began to cry and eventually made her way to the Have Not room, as Meg, Jackie, and James lay in their dentist chairs. Vanessa claimed Becky yelled at her and called Becky venomous, Joker’s Updates reports. In addition, Vanessa proceeded to blow up Becky’s game by stating Becky actually wanted James on the block, but said Vanessa had protected him and that Becky tried to make an alliance called “The Generals” that included Shelli.
From the live feeds, it appeared the Have Not group took what Vanessa said with a grain of salt. Becky later entered the room and they laughingly relayed to her everything Vanessa had revealed.
This Thursday night’s live show is a double eviction episode. This means that although it is basically written in stone that Vanessa will head to the jury house this week, another houseguest will be sent to jury immediately after.
