Liz & Austin's 'Big Brother 17' Showmance Has Inspired Some Hilarious Thoughts From Former Houseguests
Liz and Austin's relationship in the Big Brother house raises a lot of questions. Does Liz truly like Austin? (She didn't, but now she does.) Is Austin cheating on his girlfriend? (Probably.) Will Lizten still be together after Big Brother? (Who cares?) However, the biggest question surrounding this showmance for any Big Brother fan is simply, "How does it make you feel?" The answer varies from person to person, but it seems like everyone has their opinion on the couple. Chief among these opinions, is those of the former houseguests who either know what it's like to live in the Big Brother house for a summer, or even those who spent time in the house with Liz and Austin.
Former Big Brother houseguests have been tweeting their opinions about the show all season long, including which houseguest should win BB17. When the topic of Liz and Austin comes up, however, the houseguests are not afraid to make sure the rest of Twitter knows exactly how they feel about the controversial showmance. Opinions on Lizten range from "disapproval" to "disgusted," as it seems that many former houseguests are big fans of the two. Here are some of the best alumni reactions Big Brother's latest showmance has inspired.
