After Jessica used her Halting Hex on Thursday, Christmas was the last houseguest left who still had a temptation. Despite saying she wouldn’t use it until jury, she used it this afternoon.
Christmas received the second Den of Temptation, which was the Ring of Replacement. It gave her the ability to swap places with anyone picked to compete in the veto, so long as they weren’t the HOH or the nominees. This temptation could only be used once, but it would never expire. It was thought that she would use it to either solidify a backdoor by taking a target’s spot or compete when she thought she was in trouble, but instead she decided to play it safe this week.
Christmas used her Ring of Replacement on Cody, taking his spot in the veto competition. She did this to ensure that Jessica was left on the block and didn’t have another strong competitor trying to win it for her. While it’s still possible, it seems as though Christmas’ target has shifted back to Jessica after wanting to target Elena.
When the feeds returned after the Ring of Replacement was used, Cody was in Jessica’s arms crying. When Jessica went to talk to Christmas about it, Jessica said that it was a personal attack on her to use the temptation now instead of using it to save Christmas when she was in danger. Things will get very interesting is Jessica manages to pull out a veto win, but we’ll have to just wait and see.
