BB17 Episode 12 – July 19, 2015
Is it just me? Â This season is really light on anything exciting happening. Â Clay, while hot, is a total non-entity in the game. Â Jason, the heir-apparent to Frankie, is the epitome of a floater. Â Meg, Becky, Steve & Jackie might as well leave the house – no one would care or notice. Â John is yet again a pawn and doesn’t do a damn thing about it except continue talking like Bobcat and being weirdly funny all at the same time. Â Austin creeps me out. Â I like Liz and Shelli, and Vanessa has her moments, but after she stopped being HoH, she receded into the background almost immediately. Â It’s like, what the hell, people? Â What even happened to the Big Brother Takeover this week? Â 90s week? Â Seriously?
I do sometimes rail against producer interference, but seriously, something needs to happen or this season is going to down the tubes just because it’s booooring. Â Anyway, what happened?
- A little bit of the votes stuff came up and made people wonder. Â Liz wasn’t about to admit it to anyone that she had voted to keep Jeff. Â She was fine with letting Becky get the blame. Â I don’t blame her for that.
- Jackie talked to Austin about what she can do to stay in the game, and he told her that Liz was thinking of putting her up as a pawn. Â Jackie tells that info to Shelli who begins to get annoyed that Austin would reveal plans like that to mere minions. Â She thinks it’s smart to keep Austin out of sensitive conversations from here on out. Â Well, duh!
- Battle of the Block: Â Jason & John had a pretty great lead in this competition which required the players to find a key in 4 different “90s band” areas. Â At the Smashing Pumpkins, they hit the wall and that let Jackie and James catch up and surpass them. Â So John is still on the block, although this time he didn’t try to throw it.
- Audrey sabotages her game yet again, throwing Jason under the bus for no apparent reason and saying to Shelli that Jason is gunning for Shelli. Â Of course Shelli finds out that Jason said no such thing. Â So maybe Audrey will be a target after all this week? Â WHO FUCKING CARES?

I still like my drawings. Â But please, Big Brother producers, give me a reason to care about this show. Â You managed to pick obscenely normal and unexciting people. Â That’s great for real life, but this show needs some crazy. Â It needs some crazy, STAT.
