Welcome to the game, Meg! It's nice to have you on Big Brother. On Thursday, Meg finally started playing Big Brother 17 ... the only thing is she was supposed to have been playing since Day 1 since she's actual houseguest. But, you know what they say: Better late than never. Meg's Big Brother game thus far has been a walk in the park. She's been nominated before, but she's also never actually been a threat. But, now that Jason has been evicted, Meg is finally starting to play and it's about damn time.
I think it is safe to say that Meg was more upset than Jason was when Jason was nominated in Clay's place during the Veto Ceremony. Meg felt "completely blindsided" and didn't know who she could trust — like, what happened to the Dark Moon alliance, Vanessa? It was actually pretty heartbreaking to see, since Meg is just such a nice person that you don't want to see her cry over the game. And, because she was, I actually started to resent Vanessa & Co. for making her cry.
Meg confronted Clay in the storage room and asked him WTF was going on and Clay played dumb. At least I think he "played" dumb... Meg realized that Clay was completely lying to her face, which ignited a fire under her butt and had her running up to Vanessa and asking why Jason was on the block. She was determined to help Jason campaign for safety.
Meg said she felt stupid, that she felt played, and totally called out Vanessa for betraying her. While I'm devastated that Jason had to go for Meg to wake up, I think this is going to be a good thing for her. She needs to start making moves and playing with her alliance (I'm really rooting for Meg, James, and Jackie at this point). Meg's lack of game so far might help her if people don't feel she's a threat. Let's hope she keeps with it and gets revenge on those that evicted Jason.
