Austin begs Vanessa not to put him on the block.
All week, the Sixth Sense alliance had been planning to backdoor Austin after he betrayed their trust and disclosed important #TwinTwist information to Jason. But just before the crew could go through with the bold move, Liz came to the tattooed romantic's rescue.
Vanessa confronted Liz about Austin's plan to do whatever he needed—which included targeting Julia—to get the two of them to the jury house, and appeared shocked to learn that Liz wasn't creeped out at all. Instead, Liz defended Austin and convinced the other alliance members that keeping Austin in the game would be in all of their best interests.
Later that day, Vanessa came clean about her plan to ax the wrestler from the game, giving him a chance to plead his case. While she didn't make any promises, Austin seemed confident he'd be staying around for another week.
