Becky said she felt like she should have been closer to Steve and protected Jackie more. Steve said he tried to throw the head of household competition because he was in good shape in this game.

Julia comforted Steve because he had kept her and Liz safe and if either of them won head of household this week they would try to protect him. Vanessa also came in and comforted Steve.
Once everyone else left the room Steve said his tears were 50% just an act. It’s hard to tell since he was having a mini-breakdown before anyone even came in to the room, and viewers were waiting for him to cry out to his mommy again like he did before. James said the house is split right now and everyone is trying to get an extra vote. Steve asked Meg if she wanted to talk because he owed it to her.

Becky said she would be safe if Liz was making decisions by herself, but not if Vanessa was helping her make decisions. Becky said she will be Liz’s number one target.
Liz said Becky was her target which was a relief to Vanessa. Austin said the sixth sense alliance is now dead and something new needs to be formed. Becky said she was trying to save herself and she needed to convince Liz and her alliance that Vanessa was not on their side. Austin said he knew Vanessa was angry at him when she was head of household but didn’t know she was trying to get him evicted.

Vanessa told John she wanted to help him but she wasn’t clear where his loyalties were at. John said he felt like Vanessa had been bullying him by trying to get him to throw under people under the bus. Vanessa said she didn’t know what to do with John but she was trying to pull him into her alliance with Steve, Austin, Liz and Julia. Vanessa then went and told them she wasn’t sure John should be a pawn after the conversation she had just had with him. Vanessa accused John of getting an attitude with her. John called Vanessa out on running to her alliance as soon as they talked. Liz was suspicious about Vanessa based on what Becky said about her.
