Tonight is the first double eviction of the summer, which will get the houseguests the first opportunity to really shake up the game all in one night if they chose to.
Once the regularly scheduled eviction is over, the houseguests will be hurried out into the backyard where they’ll compete for Head of Household. Once HOH has been won, the new person in charge will have just a few minutes to decide who they’ll nominate. Once nominations are made, the houseguests will be hurried out into the backyard again to compete for the Power of Veto. They’ll get a few minutes to decide on what should be done with the veto before the veto ceremony, followed soon by the second live eviction.
Even though it’s the first double eviction of the summer and it almost always leads to fallout afterwards, we’re not going to get to see any of it until late Friday night.
The live feeds will be going down a couple hours before the live double eviction show begins and won’t be returning until midnight EST, after the special Friday episode airs on the west coast. We still don’t know what that Friday episode is for, but we do know that a special guest will be involved, according to what Executive Producer Alison Grodner told BBN.
Tomorrow’s eviction will arguably be one of the most important and consequential of the summer, but that doesn’t mean it’s immune from being interrupted by preseason football.
Unlike last Thursday, the double eviction episode will only be interrupted in a few markets, with it being delayed in only two and being moved to a new channel in the other. Virtually everyone else in the country should have no problem watching the double eviction episode during it’s normal broadcast on the usual CBS channel.
It’s the final day before the double eviction and most of the houseguests are anticipating it, so the plans that everyone wants to execute will be finalized. Paul is going to have to make it through the day without Kevin finding out about Paul telling people of Kevin’s secret of taking the $25,000, or else Paul might have three people who might come for him instead of two.
The houseguests were surprised with the second practice competition that they have gotten in three weeks, but this time we don’t know exactly what competition it is for.
Since there is a double eviction coming up, this could be for the first HOH competition, the veto competition, or the second HOH competition that’ll be played later in the night after the live show. It seems like most fans on social media are hoping that it’s either the veto competition or the second HOH competition, as they don’t want such a consequential HOH being a crapshoot.
The practice competition was an oversized shuffleboard with no further instructions other than to practice shooting the puck to the other end. Each of the houseguests got eight shots. The way we scored the houseguests was making it to the back end of the board where there is a little red line that marks about 3.5 feet of space. Each time they did, we counted it counted as a point.
Kevin: 5 out of 8
Mark: 5 out of 8
Matt: 5 out of 8
Josh: 4 out of 8
Paul: 3 out of 8
Christmas: 3 out of 8
Alex: 3 out of 8
Elena: 3 out of 8
Cody: 2 out of 8
Jason: 2 out of 8
Raven: 1 out of 8
The competition is likely to end up a crapshoot, so these scores mean close to nothing, but it could be worth noting if it really is just oversized shuffleboard. Whatever the actual HOH ends up being, it’ll need to be a quick competition since they’re cramming an entire week into one live show. Below you can find pictures from the practice competition.
