There’s only one more week in Big Brother 17. Three houseguests remain to compete in the final HOH competition of the season and they’ll get the only vote to determine which two will be making their case to the jury. The last vote is everything! Choose the right person and you’re guaranteed the prize money; choose wrong and you’re going to endure a LONG night.
The remaining players have been ranked based on their game moves, alliances, and potential to win the game:
Vanessa is sitting pretty for the time being as the person most likely to win. She’s won a lot of challenges, made big game moves throughout the season, and she’s manipulated a lot of the votes. There’s no denying that she has an impressive resume to convince the jury. The problem, however, is that she’s too much of a threat. Vanessa has done too much and rubbed people the wrong way. The jury is split on Vanessa–sometimes a jury isn’t bitter; they just prefer a more likable person. Vanessa would need to win the final HOH competition and own up to her shadiness to make a real genuine case to the jury or else it will cost her the game.
Liz is in a similar boat to Vanessa. She’s won plenty of changes and she was a part of a powerful alliance that controlled most of the game. From the jury aspect, Austin and Julia will no doubt vote for her in the end. However, she needs to convince the others to vote for her as well. Liz hasn’t really developed her relationships with the other side of the house and that could work against her if the time ever comes.
Steve is an enigma. He’s quiet and reserved but he’s also a competition beast. People genuinely seem to like him as a person but he hasn’t gained much ground in terms of lasting relationships and jury management. Vanessa and Johnny Mac were his closest allies–one is in the jury while the other is unpredictable. There’s no telling how the jury will vote if Steve is at the end. He may simply win due to the “as long as it’s not Vanessa/Liz” argument. That strategy has definitely helped a few past winners secure a few votes to win the game.
