After last week's thrilling Double Eviction, which sent James packing, the remaining HGs experienced a roller coaster of emotions when Captain Camo's picture faded to black on the memory wall. 

Sure, Liz was sad to get blood on her hands by booting the beloved country boy, but Vanessa and Steve seemed stoked to whittle down the players to an even six.

Unaware that Steve, Johnny Mac, and Vanessa are now working together, Austin and the twins probably assumed they took out their biggest threat last week when they evicted James, but you know what happens when people assume. 

"You are idiots for keeping John," Steve said to the camera in one of his famous soliloquies. "You just made the biggest mistake of the game."

For this week's baseball-themed HoH competition, the Houseguests were shown a flurry of BB17 HG trading cards and then asked to identify which evicted Houseguest was left out of the starting lineup. Once they figured out the missing player, they would need to arrange their puzzle blocks in the correct order to display the face of the omitted person.

Who ended up hitting this comp out of the park? That would be Steve.

Before making his final decision, Steve decided to sit down with Austin and explain his thoughts on the upcoming nomination. The pro wrestler asked who exactly Steve was targeting and the engineering student couldn't come up with a definitive answer.

"Unfortunately, I'm at a point in the game where I have to think of myself first," Austin said in a Diary Room interview. "So as much as I love Liz, this is the time where she's going to have to be the one fighting for her and Julia—not me."

Initially, it looked like Steve was targeting the twins, but after some last minute number-crunching, he decided to spare Julia from the block and put up her sister instead. 

While Liz was visibly shaken after the announcement, Austin allowed his alter-ego to respond to the nomination, saying, "If I win that veto, [Steve] is going to have to become a man real quick because your mommy's not here. Only Judas is." 

Can Steve and Johnny Mac trust Vanessa? How will Julia deal with the possibility of finishing the game without her twin?
