Austin Allegedly Wrote His Girlfriend A Letter Before ‘Big Brother 17’ & It Says A Lot About Their Relationship
If you watch Big Brother 17, then you most definitely are following the so-called relationship of Austin and Liz. And whether you are a huge supporter of the two or despise them "dating" immensely, there's no doubt that Austin and Liz hooking up inside the house is pretty messed up, especially since he has (or had?) a girlfriend, named Jen, before BB17 . Sure, Austin said he and his girlfriend are in an "open relationship," but who really knows. Anyways, allegedly, before starting the game, Austin wrote his girlfriend a letter, and his supposed words not only suggest he cared about her deeply, but also hint at some trouble within their relationship.
The letter was posted Monday on Twitter by two accounts which seem to belong to Austin's girlfriend's sisters. As you can read below, he allegedly wrote, "I am writing you this letter in hopes that it will give you something to hold onto until I return to you." See? It seems like he really loves her. However, here's the interesting part, which definitely suggests their relationship wasn't perfect:
Wow. That's a lot to take in. First, as I mentioned above, if Austin did write this letter, it seems like he really cares (or cared, who knows at this point) about Jen. At least before BB17, it appears he wanted to make things work and hopefully have a girlfriend once the competition ended. That still might be the case, but based on Austin's feelings and actions towards Liz, his prior relationship is totally going to be over once he exits the house. Plus, there's the fact that Austin declared he is done with Jen.
Second, his relationship seemingly had flaws. The letter almost comes off as Austin begging for his girlfriend to not make any hasty decisions regarding their relationship and to just give him one more chance. Well, if this letter was penned by Austin, he can count on not having anymore chances after this, but I don't think he'll care anyways.
Moving on, is anyone else furious at this line:
Um, I wouldn't use "class" or "honor" to describe Austin when it comes to respecting his girlfriend. And not wanting to "embarrass" himself or his girlfriend? Yeah, that mission surely wasn't accomplished, because every time he appears on screen with Liz or talking about his new love, he embarrasses himself and his so-called girlfriend.
Even though there definitely seemed to be issues within Austin and Jen's relationship, it's still not OK how he dumped his girlfriend on live television, all while being all lovey-dovey with his new love Liz.
