ICYMI Will Liz Stay True To Her Alliance?

Steve puts on a show.

Steve puts on a show.

After sending Jackie home during last week's double eviction, Steve struggled to keep himself together... or so we thought. The twins attempted to comfort the sobbing student, but as soon as the ladies left the room, Steve admitted to the camera that his tears were only half-real. Is Steve more devious than we originally thought, and which side is he really on? 

Looks like we've got an award-winning performer in the house. 

 
Liz dominates the emoji-themed HoH competition.

Liz dominates the emoji-themed HoH competition.

If there's one thing this Florida babe knows, it's when and where to use the right emoji—and, boy, did her knowledge come in handy during this week's HoH competition. 

Okay, so the challenge was more about remembering cutesy icons than texting cutesy messages to a bae, but this blonde bombshell still nailed it. Liz kicked Johnny Mac to the curb, nabbed herself the HoH key, and ensured that she, her sister, and Austin would be safe in the BB17 house for another week. 

Oh, young love. We smiley-face-with-hearts-for-eyes it.

What better way to communicate than with your favorite Big Brother Houseguests from seasons past? These adorable emojis were rolled out during the #BBEmojis HoH competition, and we simply can't get enough. 
Becky delivers some shocking news.

Becky delivers some shocking news.

With Liz sitting pretty in the HoH room, Becky started to panic. After all, she did try to backdoor one of the twins' closest allies just a week prior. She knew that she needed to do some serious damage control if she wanted to stay off the block... and fast.

So, the Colorado girl went straight to Austwins and dished out the dirtiest details on Vanessa's sketchy game, which sent shockwaves through the room. The former Sixth Sense allies couldn't believe that one of their own would agree to backdoor the pro wrestler and later lie about her involvement.

For once, the twins started to doubt the poker-playing DJ's true intentions, which left them wondering if they could truly trust her going forward. 

 
James and Steve form the unlikeliest bromance of them all.

James and Steve form the unlikeliest bromance of them all.

Ah, is there anything more bro-mantic than a couple of hat-donning dudes coming together to play chess, exercise, and traipse around the living room in floppy hats? Not a lollipop lickin' chance. 

Like protons and neutrons, these two opposites really do attract. 

 
Johnny Mac tells Vanessa to tone down the tears.

Johnny Mac tells Vanessa to tone down the tears.

Vanessa initially approached Johnny Mac to suss out whether she should invite him into her alliance, but the rock-star dentist didn't give her the answer she expected. Instead, he said he's had enough of her dramatic outburts and he doesn't like it when she cries and "yells at people." 

Needless to say, the criticism was not well received. 

Looks like Johnny Mac is done sparing other people's feelings. So watch out, Houseguests, because it's no more Mr. Nice Dentist. 
Becky and Johnny Mac find themselves on the block.

Becky and Johnny Mac find themselves on the block.

Becky took a risk when she told Austin and the twins about Vanessa's past schemes—and juding from the outcome of the eviction ceremony, it didn't appear to pay off. Instead, the former HoH found herself on the block with Johnny Mac, arguably one of her biggest allies in the game.

But, just because these two are on the block, that doesn't mean they're necessarily the targets. Following the nomination ceremony, Liz made a stop in the Diary Room and admitted that "anything could flip after veto." 

Is the new Scamper Squad alliance built to last? Or will The Goblins find a way to save their members from eviction? Find out on the next episode of Big Brother on Wednesday at 8/7c!
