‘Big Brother 17’ live feed spoilers: A fond farewell, Dr. Will Kirby, and Julie Chen

VanessaWe’ve made it to the last “Big Brother” live feed update of the season! It has been a long summer, and while we’ve certainly enjoyed it, the past few weeks have started to feel more like a grind. It was time to say goodbye, and the final three did that with some nice thank-you messages to the feeders before they went dark earlier today. This came following an emotional night where Steve cried a lot, while simultaneously Vanessa and Liz were a little mean about it behind his back.

For the time being, it still appears obvious that Steve and Vanessa will each take Liz to the end depending on who wins the final Head of Household Competition. We saw Steve try to almost hint to her earlier that he could be keeping her, but he didn’t say it outright … which is good because we feel like she would have just went and told Vanessa if she had figured it out.

Before we depart this particular article, we want to give you at least two other interesting stories from the day.

Dr. Will is back – Speaking to TVInsider, Dr. Will Kirby confirms that the show once again brought him back to speak with the jury, and he certainly suggests that there are a few people in there who are bitter. Also, he makes it sound like Austin is going to continue to speak out against Vanessa, but at the same time there’s a good chance that nobody will listen to him.

Julie Chen’s comments – Speaking to Dalton Ross of Entertainment Weekly on his radio show today, Shen had some interesting comments on the season. She is firmly in Vanessa’s corner as a great game-player, and also considers James a potential All-Star. She’s actually not as big of a Johnny Mac fan as we thought, which is a little surprising because it seemed like she enjoyed his antics on the live shows.

One thing that we do find interesting is her take that many in the jury may be more bitter towards Vanessa specifically because she is a woman, and sometimes women are harder on other women that they would be a man. We feel like there could be a certain element of sexism there when it comes to respect for Vanessa’s game, but we would reject the premise as a whole based on two separate things: Vanessa would not own up to what she did in the game (she doesn’t even own it in the Diary Room), and she also did not manage people well going out the door. While Derrick did many similar things last summer, he was very good at endearing himself to people before getting rid of them. Vanessa doesn’t have that same social charm.

We’re still going to have a little more coverage of “Big Brother” before the finale tonight, and you will be able to read up on it over at the link here.
