Typically going into nominations we have an idea as to who is going up, but since the feeds were down, we didn’t even know who the HOH was, let alone who they were going to nominate.
With Jessica ending up winning HOH this week after Cody just returned to the house, it was time to see if she was going to stick with the house plan or make a move right off the bat by putting up two big targets up outright.
It’s a new week in the Big Brother house and the first week of the summer that the initial nominees aren’t people who the whole house has come to a consensus on.
The consensus plan going into this week was for Jessica and Ramses to be nominated, but once two people didn’t vote how they should have during the eviction and Alex won HOH, that changed. The two rogue votes gave Alex perfect cover to go against the original plan and to convince several people within the majority alliance to go with having one of their own put up.
It’s been a hectic first two weeks of the summer, which definitely isn’t going to be slowed down by today’s nominations. However, there is more than meets the surface when it comes to the decisions that were made.
Paul managed to pull off the HOH win after an attempted backdoor was pulled on him by Cody, which obviously makes Cody the clear target, but that doesn’t mean that he’s going to be getting nominated today. Paul wants to avoid the chance of Cody playing in the veto, so he decided to go with nominating two pawns instead.
The first Head of Household competition and nominations of the summer were the focus of the final part of the 2-night season premiere. However, there was a lot more action this first few days than in past seasons, including the first public fight.
We’re going to start things off with the HOH competition. Nicole from Big Brother 16 and 18 came back to host it. The competition involved four separate teams. Mark, Paul, Raven, and Megan made up one team. Cody, Jessica, Dominique, and Matt made up another. Josh, Kevin, Megan, and Jillian made up the third. Ramses, Jason, Christmas, and Alex made up the last team.
This week’s nomination ceremony doesn’t hold much weight, as the veto winner will be the one making the final decision this week, however, there is a streak that could be coming to an end.
Nicole has managed to go more than 90 days without being nominated, but with Paul winning the HOH this week, that is likely to come to an end. While the nominations don’t mean anything this week, going unnominated was one of Nicole’s main arguments that she was to use if she made it to the final two.
