‘Big Brother 17’: Seventh Juror Talks Shock Exit, Love for Liz and Leaving His Girlfriend.

Here we are at the tail end of the season, where the pixelated crust of sleep has embedded itself in the corners of our eyes and we’re lazily trudging toward the sweet relief of a season finale, when suddenly and without all warning, we’re given… an interesting episode!?!? Before the former professional wrestler entered the Big Brother house he told The Hollywood Reporter about his view on showmances saying, “showmances are the death of you in this game.” Now, moments after his eviction and before he was locked up in the jury house Austin talks to THR again about his change of heart, leaving his girlfriend for Liz, the blindside by Vanessa, and the turtle neck he’ll wear to the Nolan family dinner. (Disclosure: Because the nine-person jury is underway, houseguests will now answer questions via email from THR.

Tucked away in the house, they had no idea about the NFL or the return of “Thursday Night Football,” which prompted CBS to shift “Big Brother” to Tuesday. It’s stipulated that questions cannot in any way be a potential interference to the game and are required to be approved by production before given to the houseguests.) Vanessa completely betrayed me. And he was not happy about it. “Vanessa completely betrayed me,” says Austin. “I knew it was a possibility because it’s Big Brother, but her whole game was about playing with integrity and not betraying me since we made a final two deal on the second day.

Head of household Vanessa had picked Steve and Johnny Mac for eviction, but Johnny Mac won the veto challenge, saved himself and took himself off the block. (CBS managed to plug its sitcom “Life in Pieces,” but more about that later.) Liz, of course, wanted boyfriend Austin to stay. She swore to me on her family, her girlfriend, the LGBT community and the Bible and she’ll have to deal with those consequences of making those pledges and going back on it. My highlights: — Julie’s announcement that “tonight” is eviction night, met with a reaction of surrendered resignation from just about every houseguest.

Although Steve looks like he’s moderately motion sick, our remaining five finalists seem to have accepted their fate with ambivalence toward whatever happens next. It’s an eerie example of art imitating life, if you can call Big Brother art (which I can because I took a class once and had a roommate who majored in art history for a semester). — In the immediate aftermath of Commander Julie’s decree, everyone hugged Vanessa in sort of a blood oath kind of a way that we’ve come to expect of interactions with her. Jace made a comment in the beginning of the game that Liz was hot and you said, “I don’t think so obviously I have a girlfriend I’m in love with.” What happened to the love for your girlfriend that made you leave her for Liz? I volunteered to go on the block this week to protect Liz, and I would do that again 1000 times over and have no problem walking out the door because of it.

Although he ultimately doesn’t make good on his plan to throw the veto to Austin and Liz, his sheer determination to foil his entire game just for the sake of pissing off Vanessa and coming in third (instead of fifth) is admirable. — The houseguests being forced to watch CBS’ Modern Life in Family Pieces, which I can assure you has at least one and up to two funny scenes in 22 minutes. I still never imagined being involved in a showmance but overtime, getting to know Liz as a person, we connected in a way I never connected with someone and we fell in love. They have enough time to talk about strategy — it’s not an immediate eviction — and Johnny yet again entertains the crazy idea of keeping the showmance just to spite Miss V.

It would be the ultimate move, a stroke of pure insanity that matches the only other dentist-with-a-deathwish I know (the guy from Little Shop of Horrors). As luck would have it his sister Ariana Grande was performing at the Staples Center and the winner of the luxury prize along with another fellow houseguests would be accompanying him to the concert. As far as Judas goes, he’s not some evil manipulator; he’s the manifestation of Austin’s personality who has watched Austin get disappointed and heartbroken by life.

I was very angry about it because before Liz would even consider progressing our relationship, I had to talk to her, on camera, in front of the live feeds and tell her exactly where I stood personally with my girlfriend. As the tiebreaker, Vanessa quickly names Austin as her victim, and his reaction is a HUGE turn of events for this game — just, sadly, way too late in the season. — In his exit interview, Austin’s furious and barefoot and trudging across the stage like he didn’t need to get out of bed for another hour but had to go take the dog out. My decision to move on in my life was very complicated, there was a lot going on that people don’t know about the relationship and in the high pressurized situation that is Big Brother, feelings develop quickly and you don’t know how long you’re going to be there.

— The new HOH competition is a hilarious contest between John, Steve, and Liz, where they’re tasked with filling in the bleep on unnecessarily censored quotes from this season.
