The most uneventful week of the summer so far is finally coming to a close tonight as the houseguests decide who they’re going to take to the final eight with them.
Christmas originally nominated Jason and Matt this week, with the intention of getting Mark out. Despite Mark being the main target, Jason was the clear backup target and the one person who might be able to have the votes flipped against him. However, Jason ended up winning the veto and sealing Mark’s fate in the game.
Mark is likely to be evicted tonight in a unanimous vote, though someone could throw a wonky vote against Matt just to put an even bigger target on Kevin, despite it already being very large. Things will finally get interesting going into the new HOH competition, as Paul’s majority alliance will finally have to turn on each other.
With Mark gone, that leaves only people who have been working together for the last month or more. No matter who wins, they’re going to have to turn on people that they were formerly working with. Christmas, Josh, and Paul, who also happen to be in a trio alliance, are positioned the best, as both Alex & Jason and Matt & Raven will be going after one another under the guise of wanting to get Kevin out. Things will get really interesting if Paul ends up accidentally winning HOH, as everyone in the house thinks that he’s with them.
