It’s live eviction night, and either Steve or Johnny Mac is definitely walking out the door to talk to Julie Chen. But are the Houseguests in control making a rational decision? It doesn’t appear that they are. But first…
Julie, please fire your stylist. We love you, but that outfit was all kinds of wrong. And can someone fix that light bulb in the back that keeps going out?
Now back to the game. When we last saw Vanessa, she was ripping poor Steve a new one thanks to Liz (yes, it was Liz not Julia) throwing him under the bus after John told Vanessa about the five-person alliance that tried to get her out. Her mood did not improve after the Veto ceremony, forcing Steve to avoid her for some time, and more crying ensued. Vanessa cries a lot.
After cooling down, she finally allowed him to speak with her, but her aggressiveness completely flustered him, causing him to fudge some of the facts about when the alliance to oust her was formed. John showed up in the knick of time to further blow up Steve’s game by telling Vanessa that the alliance was formed last week, not this week. It was not going well for Steve.
But here’s where it gets a bit frustrating, to the point where you have to pause the show to yell at Vanessa. She had another conversation with Liz and Julia about that alliance, and Liz then told her that Steve only jumped on the idea after John brought it up! HELLO! Vanessa! Are you paying the least bit of attention to details?!? One minute Liz is saying it was Steve’s plan, then the next he was just a hanger-on? Which is it, and why didn’t you call her out or at least talk to John and Steve again privately? And seriously, you think you’re going to get any further than fourth place with those three in the game? You’re worried about being fifth on the totem pole? I really thought Vanessa was going to be an intelligent player, and she has certainly played a great game up to this point but now she is letting all of her emotions drive her actions and unless she pulls herself together, she’s going to end up having to cast a final vote for Liz or Julia if she doesn’t rally the rest of the house to turn against that three-headed monster.
Unfortunately, while she was being irrationally angry at Steve, that played right into Austin’s, Liz’s and Julia’s game to evict John. John, also, made a fatal error when Liz confronted him about revealing the alliance to Vanessa. He rightfully pointed out that by putting him on the block with Steve that it was obvious they were working with James and Meg, but he also should have pointed out that this was not the week to evict him because if he got to return to the game, she would be his target. Better to keep him in the house for another week than risk him coming back for revenge. But he didn’t, and he was sent out the door.
As the show ended, the four jury members — Shelli, Jackie, Becky (her toe seems to have healed enough that she can wear shoes now) and John — re-entered the house to compete for a chance to return to the game and possibly win HoH in a dual competition called Dizzyland. The HGs had to cling to ropes while standing on a tiny disk while being spun around the yard and slapped by giant hands. The last jury member standing would return, and the last HG standing would become HoH. The returning jury member could do both.
So how did the competition end? You can wait till Sunday’s episode to find out, or you can check out the results below.
