A John & Julia 'BB17' Showmance — Make It Happen

Love is in the air this season on Big Brother. We might just be welcoming a new couple into the showmance arena now that Julia has entered the house as her own player. At first, it seemed like John and Becky were the showmance we were actually rooting for, but with Julia in the game, John and Julia — or Johnlia — seems like a pretty good idea. These two have gotten close over the last few days, prompting fans to ask: Will John and Julia hook up on Big Brother 17 ? Fans are rooting for these two to get together, and if their relationship continues to grow at the rate it is now, we might have a new showmance to replace Clelli.

I'd like to think of John and Julia coming together as a fairytale. The timing had to be just right and the stars had to align for these two to get together. I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch, but I think this season might need to end with a Big Brother wedding, and since Clay and Shelli are going to be split up at the end of the week, I have to start looking elsewhere (and I'd never wish a Big Brother wedding upon Liz). Here's why these two should get together.

They Can Bond Over Dental Care

John, as we know, is a dentist. Julia was a dental assistant. Can you say match made in the oral surgery room?

The Fans Love Them

They have a fan-made ship video, you guys. They're our Rose and Jack, Brad and Angelina, and Romeo and Juliet.

They Can Both Play Pool

Sure, a lot of people like to play pool, but these two are different.
