Big Brother 17 Weekly Recap {Week 2}

Hello All,

Introduction to be written at the end of the week

Sunday, June 28, 2015:
This episode started out with the house guest learning what reward Da'Vonne and Vanessa got for sitting out of the first HOH competition. Well they got to fast forward through the week meaning that they couldn't be nominate nor evicted (obvi) this week. But not only that, they also go to take a player along with them. They each got 30 minutes to make their choice and every house guest pitched themselves. Vanessa who had no obivious alliance was able to hear everyone out and chose Austin who was the opposite of her and more of physical threat making it a good move for her to team up with him.

Da'Vonne on the other hand was worried because she already had a "solid" alliance with Audrey and Shelli. She became worried that the house would suspect they were working together if she chose one of them. Which pissed both Audrey and Shelli off. Ultimately Da'Vonne chose to bring Liz into the next week with her.
After the BB Fast Forward twisted itself into place the talks about who would be nominated started. Right off the bat it was decided that they would attempt to backdoor Jace. Which is crazy, who attempts to backdoor in the first week? After that was decided the HOHs Jason and James went to informing all the houseguests that if they went up they were only going up as pawns. 

Jason got to pick his nominees first and chose to nominate Becky and John. Then it was James' turn and he nominated Jackie and Steve. The two sets of nominees battled it out to see who would get to hop off the chopping block. In this competition they had to walk across balance beams with foam blocks in order to build a skyscraper. Becky went out in this competition in complete Beast Mode with John nibbing at her heels. The other pair didn't seem to have the same luck. Steve had a very hard time keeping his balance. And although Jackie bragged about being a dancer she took quite a few tumbles herself.

Ultimately although it was close Becky and John came out victorious and won the competition. Meaning that Jason was de-throned as HOH and James became the offical HOH. And Steve and Jackie would remain on the block.

This episode was explosive to say the least. It opened with Austin and Jace trying to make an alliance with HOH James and Audrey. What they didn't know was neither Audrey nor James were taking it serious.

With alliances on everybody's mind the house started making mistakes that were seen in last season by creating a 8 person alliances. Which includes, Meg, James, Audrey, Jeff, Da'Vonne, Jason, Jace and Shelli who were getting ready to work with each other. Although at 4 AM the night before the POV ceremony (sorry I'm jumping around a little) to seal their alliance. One by one she went down and got each of the members and to "talk". Needless to say no one was that happy with this meeting which caused some major tension.

Another moment of tension arised in this alliance when Da'Vonne was counting trying to prepare for a possible counting competition. She went into one of the rooms which caused Clay, Shelli and Jeff to become suspicious. This caused a few a lot of necissary drama that left me thinking....what the        just happen?
This week's POV was the spelling competition. This year instead of just spelling the longest words they also had to have the highest point value per word. The house guest who played in this competition were James, Jason, Steve, Becky, Jackie and John. The majority of the house guest scored around 6 points. But Steven blew the rest of the house guest out of the water with I believe a 12 point word of trombonist.
With Steve having won the POV it became obvious that he would be taking himself off the block. This excited the Big yet rocky 8 person alliance because it meant that they could backdoor their major target, Jace. I'm still not sure why they were convinced he was a major threat but that's what the house saw. For a second James thought about playing a major twist and back dooring Audrey but ultimately he follow his alliance and nominated Jace.
Making that at the end of the episode Jace and Jackie were up on the block getting ready to go home tomorrow night.

The first eviction episode of the season episode aired this season. Before the eviction we watched Jace try to campaign for votes although Big Brother didn't give use enough time to really know what had happened in the house but more of a crash course in Jace's campaign.

Before the vote we were officially introduce to the twins. And the internet was right in guess that Liz was inside the house playing with her sister Julia.
Finally it was time for eviction. Liz and Julia made Big Brother history by casting one vote to evict and they evicted Jace. Everyone else with the exception of Audrey also voted for Jace to leave making that Jace was the first player evicted from Big Brother 17.

In Jace's post eviction interview he said he knew that he was going home and had asked his allies (Liz/Julie and Austin) to vote him out in order to keep peace in the house. He was also told about the twin twist which means that Jace is officially out of the house and will not get a chance to re-enter this house.

After Jace's eviction the audience learned about this week's twist. Throughout the week Kathy Griffin will be calling the house guest. Every time the phone rings the house guest, in true Big Brother fashion will race to pick it up. Who ever picks up the seventh phone call gets to choose 3 house guest who don't get to vote in next week's eviction ceremony. I am really excited about this twist. I do hope that they call the house more then 7 times so it isn't a obvious for house who gets the power.

Julie and Kathy Griffin
The episode ended with the HOH competition. In this competition they had re-build a movie sign for Kathy Griffin's new movie Ginger Fever. They played the game in two rounds. The first HOH is Becky and the second HOH is Shelli. I can tell you in my personal opinion I'm not a huge fan of either of these HOHs but it's still early in the game and about million things will change before next week.

Emma's Player of the Week
This week I wasn't 100% sure who I wanted to make my player of the week. Like a said earlier its still early in the season so there big game moves aren't big in the grand scheme of things. With that being said let's talk this week's player of the week.

So, this week's player it player who since the beginning of the summer has a little bit of target on their back because they remind the other house guest about a past player. And although they didn't win the BotB competition they got creative and tried their best. They also were able to save themselves in POV and pulled out a win using the word, "Trombonist". And because of that Steven is this week's player of the week!

So, until next week this was my Big Brother recap. Check back here next week for a new weekly recap. In the in between check me out on Twitter where I live tweet every episode.
